Undersea UFO Bases
Undersea UFO Bases
Long before the alleged UFO crash at Roswell in 1947, people have witnessed strange lights and machines entering and leaving Earth’s seas.
In mid-February 1942, five years before UFOs were brought into modern mass consciousness by Kenneth Arnold’s sighting of flying saucers near Mount Rainier and the alien spaceship crash outside of Roswell, Lt. William Brennan of the Royal Australian Air Force sighted a mysterious aerial craft while on patrol over the Bass Strait south of Melbourne, Australia. Brennan was on the lookout for Japanese submarines or long-range German U-boats. Fishermen in the area had reported mysterious lights bobbing on the sea at night, and after the Japanese attack on Darwin on February 19, the Allied High Command was urging the strictest vigilance.
The air patrol was flying a few miles east of the Tasman Peninsula about 5:50 P.M. on a sunny evening when a strange aircraft of a glistening bronze color suddenly emerged from a cloud bank near them. The object was about 150 feet long and approximately 50 feet in diameter. Lt. Brennan saw that the peculiar craft had a dome or cupola on its upper surface and he thought that he might have seen someone inside wearing a helmet. There were occasional greenish-blue flashes emanating from its keel, and Brennan was astonished to see what appeared to be the bizarre image of a grinning Cheshire cat framed in a white circle on the front of the dome.
The unidentified aerial craft flew parallel to the RAAF patrol for several minutes, then it abruptly turned away and dived straight down into the Pacific. Brennan emphasized that the unidentified submarine object (USO) made a dive, not a crash, into the ocean; and he added that before the craft left them, he noticed what appeared to be four finlike appendages on its underside.
According to UFO researchers, Brennan may have reported an early sighting of a craft returning to an extraterrestrial or a secret terrestrial undersea base. While there are numerous witnesses who claim to have seen UFOs ascending from underground bases, there are also a vast number of reports from those who have witnessed strange USOs entering and leaving large bodies of water. In other instances, scientific expeditions have encountered mysterious underwater objects that belonged to no known terrestrial source.
Early in February 1960 the Argentine navy, with the assistance of United States advisers, alternately depth-bombed and demanded the surrender of submarines thought to be lurking at the bottom of Golfo Nuevo, a forty-by-twenty-mile bay separated from the South Atlantic by a narrow entrance. There were at least two mystery submarines, and they both were able to function and maneuver in the narrow gulfs for many days without surfacing. They easily outran and hid from surface vessels, and in spite of the combined forces of the Argentine fleet and the most modern U.S. subhunting technology, they were able to escape.
On January 12, 1965, Captain K, an airline pilot on a flight between Whenuapai and Kaitaia, New Zealand, spotted a USO when he was about one-third of the way across Kaipara Harbor. As he veered his DC-3 for a closer look at what he had at first guessed to be a stranded gray-white whale in an estuary, it became evident to him that he was now observing a metallic structure of some sort.
Captain K saw that the object was perfectly streamlined and symmetrical in shape. He could detect no external control surfaces or protrusions, but there did appear to be a hatch on top. Harbored in no more than thirty feet of water, the USO was not shaped like an ordinary submarine. He estimated its length to be approximately a hundred feet with a diameter of fifteen feet at its widest part.
Later, the navy stated that it would have been impossible for any known model of submarine to have been in that particular area due to the configuration of harbor and coastline. The surrounding mud flats and mangrove swamps would make the spot in which Captain K saw his USO inaccessible to conventional undersea craft.
The Argentine steamer Naviero was some 120 miles off the coast of Brazil on the night of July 30, 1967. The time was about 6:15. Captain Julian Lucas Ardanza was enjoying his evening meal when one of his officers, Jorge Montoya, called him on the intercom to report something strange near the ship. Captain Ardanza emerged on deck to view a cigar-shaped shining object in the sea, not more than 50 feet off the Naviero’s starboard side. The submarine craft was an estimated 105 to 110 feet long and emitted a powerful blue and white glow. Captain Ardanza and the other officers could see no sign of periscope, railing, tower, or superstructure on the noiseless craft. Captain Ardanza said that in his twenty years at sea he had never seen anything like it.
Chief Officer Carlos Lasca ventured that the object was a submersible UFO with a brilliant source of illumination. The seamen estimated the craft’s speed at twenty-five knots, as opposed to the Naviero’s seventeen. After pacing the Argentine steamer for fifteen minutes, the unidentified submarine object suddenly submerged, passed directly under the Naviero, and disappeared into the depths of the ocean, glowing all the while it dove deeper and deeper.
On October 3, 1967, a sixty-foot-long object with a series of bright portholes was sighted diving into the harbor and submerging in Shag Harbor, Nova Scotia. Within twenty minutes several constables of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police were on the scene, attempting to reach by boat the spot where about a half mile off shore the sizzling UFO was seen to float, then submerge beneath the surface of Shag Harbor.
A Coast Guard boat and eight fishing vessels joined the constables in time to observe a large path of yellowish foam and bubbling water. Divers from the Royal Canadian Navy searched the area for two days, but found no physical evidence of any kind.
In December 1997 a massive craft was seen emerging from the sea next to an oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico. According to engineer Jeremy Packer, the sighting was witnessed by 250 oil rig workers.
At about 7:58 A.M., Packer said, everyone got frightened when they heard a rumbling noise that they knew couldn’t be the engines that ran the platform bore. Looking toward the west, they sighted twenty-five to thirty helicopters on maneuvers. This was not unusual, Packer said, except that the rig commander said that he had not received the usual alert regarding Coast Guard maneuvers.
Then, according to Packer, they all saw something that totally changed their lives. All of the helicopters stopped in midair and a huge metal cigar-shaped object about the size of the oil platform surfaced beneath them. The massive craft, about as long as two football fields, soared straight out of the water and into the air, where it hovered above the helicopters for about two minutes.
Packer described the object as concave on its underside with four large domes on its bottom. The topside of the cigar-shaped craft was encircled by beautiful lights of every color that one could imagine. Then, as if someone had turned off a light switch, the giant craft disappeared.
On July 5, 1965, Dr. Dmitri Rebikoff, a marine scientist making preparations to explore the Gulf Stream’s depths, found himself faced with a most unusual challenge when he detected and attempted to photograph a fast-moving USO on the bottom of the warm water stream that flows from the Florida Keys to Newfoundland and onward to northern Europe. Dr. Rebikoff told Captain L. Jacques Nicholas, project coordinator, that the object was pear-shaped and moving at approximately three and one-half knots.
The peculiar object was moving beneath various schools of fish, and at first, judging from its size, Dr. Rebikoff thought it to be a large shark. As he monitored it, however, he noted that the USO’s direction and speed were too constant. The marine scientist theorized that the object was mechanical and running on robot pilot, but since they were unable to receive any signal from the USO, he really had no idea what it might have been.
In 1969 Dr. Roger W. Wescott, chairman of the anthropology department at Drew University, Madison, New Jersey, published The Divine Animal, in which he presented the theory that extraterrestrials had landed on Earth ten thousand years ago, fully intending to teach humankind a better way of life. But when Earth’s dominant species continued to demonstrate its avaricious and destructive nature, the extraterrestrials gave up in disgust and withdrew to establish undersea bases.
Although these cosmic tutors were temporarily thwarted in their attempts to build a better world here on Earth, they did not give up hope for all time, and they emerge from time to time to conduct certain spot checks to see if humans are advancing intellectually and becoming less barbaric. Such monitoring forays explain the sightings of UFOs which have been reported for thousands of years.
Dr. Wescott also suggests that when the UFOnauts withdrew from the Earth’s surface, they took some humans along with them to train and to tutor according to their advanced extraterrestrial principles. Dr. Wescott conjectures that some of these specially tutored humans might have been returned to the surface at certain intervals to have become leaders. Some of these apprentices worked to change humankind for good, while others, corrupted by a combination of their secret knowledge and the malleability of the less-advanced surfaced humans, brought additional chaos and confusion to the world. Dr. Wescott speculates that such individuals as Buddha, Jesus, Muhammad, Genghis Khan, and Attila the Hun might have been sent up to the surface by the UFOnauts with varying degrees of success.
The anthropologist feels that the space travelers were viewed as gods by our human ancestors. He believes that the UFO beings sincerely wished to teach developing humankind, but as the human species began to master the environment, they also began to desire more material goods and became willing to wage wars to obtain the goods they didn’t possess. In his theory, human greed and aggressiveness disgusted the Masters from space and caused them to withdraw from humankind and to establish undersea bases where they could still observe the species but live comfortably apart from them.
In Dr. Wescott’s view, such a theory helps to explain two of the most widespread and persistent legends found among nearly all peoples and all cultures: (1) There was a time when gods walked the earth and tutored humankind. (2) There was a land called Atlantis, whose thriving civilization met with catastrophe and sank beneath the sea.
