RUSSIAN COSMONAUTS CLAIM UFOs ARE REAL
Cosmonaut Alexandr Baladin stated that "flying saucers"
have come into close proximity to the MIR space station
as well as the Baikonur Cosmodrom. He added there is
sufficient evidence to warrant a scientific study of the
phenomenon, and that it is time that world governments
officially acknowledge the UFO phenomenon's existence.
"General Vladimir Ivanov, former commander of
Russia's Military Space Forces, recalls that three objects
flew at a considerable altitude over Baikonur
Cosmodrome and were picked up on radar. There is no
way they could have been airplanes." insisted the
cosmonaut. Baladin disclosed December 23, 1998, at
Brazil's First International Ufology Forum, that he and
fellow cosmonaut Musa Manarov had seen UFOs.
During docking operations between his space capsule and
the MIR, Baladin saw a glowing object a short distance
away. Manarov managed to capture the strange
phenomenon on videotape, that was shown during the
UFO congress in Brazil. Baladin claimed that the
recording and other evidence presented during the
Congress, "must be studied by an international scientific
commission." Baladin insisted that the Russian military
has a great contribution to make to UFO research, giving
as an example the multiple-witness case at the Kaputsin
Yar missile base, whose personnel sighted a semi-circular
object flying at low altitude lighting up the bases facilities
with a powerful searchlight in June 1989. "Many of my
old comrades, who are now working at top-secret
military facilities, acknowledge having seen UFOs.

NASA UFO VIDEO FOOTAGE
I have been examining videotape purporting to document
encounters between UFOs and U.S. and Russian
spacecraft. One scene shows the space shuttle just below
the Russian space station MIR. Watching these videos it
is difficult to obtain accurate measurements of distance
and size. However, the viewer can see three discoidal
shaped objects approach from the right. Two of the
objects appear to fly slowly past the MIR while a third
object slows to a stop and hovers in the vicinity of one of
the solar panel arrays. I'm not certain what these objects
are but they do not appear to be spinning ice crystals or
floating shuttle parts. They seem to create their own light
or fireball rather than being a reflection from the sun.
They do not look like space ships depicted in the movies.
However, the exact design of alien space ships traveling
in space is apparently unknown. There is some evidence
that they may use advanced nano technology techniques
to shrink the size of their craft. We have numerous eye
witness accounts of a small light coming in from space.
Hovering and appearing to grow from the size of
basketball to a large craft. Later they can be seen
shrinking or disappearing altogether. Our scientists are
now predicting we are developing similar technology.
You will carry your car around in your pocket. When
your ready to travel you set it down and it grows into a
full sized car. The NASA Shuttle films show numerous
strange objects in space. They may not look the way
anyone expects a space ship to appear. A small object
moving through space would theoretically be able to
accelerate and travel at higher speeds using less fuel. A
great deal more research is needed. Thanks to Tom
Sheets and ISUR who provided me with the tapes.
