The astonishing UFO encounters of John Foster

This is one of the most important UFO stories of our time.

…spoken by John Foster and by many credible experts in various fields of understanding.

(Below is a composite drawing representing all of the so-called UFO encounters experienced by John Foster and the other people who were with him.)

This is a true story that critically affects our basic understandings of  life on earth. If investigated thoroughly, it can enhance our modern concepts of science, religion and history. It can enrich our present personal lives and our lives in the future…even beyond death!

It is a very complex and lengthy story that is aimed here toward “the average person on the street.”

For an introduction to the story see the videos of John’s talks to the 2001 International UFO Congress Convention and the 2000 Ozark UFO Conference below.

Mind Wanderings:

(To be updated from time to time)

When I was young… How it all began…..

Entered January 14, 2018:

001Hearing “the voice” for the first time:
“When I was very young, about two or three years old, I sometimes would play on the sidewalk, at the corner, in front of our house. And at times I felt excruciating forces on my body and mind; I could hardly move. Hearing roaring sounds above me, I struggled to look upward. I sometimes saw the craft (disc-shaped craft) hovering and moving slowly several yards above me in the fog or haze. And I sometimes heard a voice talking, at times to me about something I could not understand. After I gain control again, I would run to the house to tell my mother.

These mysterious, shocking episodes were only a part of the very unusual beginning of my entire lifetime that was peppered, for more than 46 years, with three dimensional and multidimensional contacts of mysterious crafts and beings that arrived strangely and physically from the unknown…from another place, beyond our time and space”……..John

Before watching the following videos:

Written by John Foster December 17, 2017… “Before watching the following videos, whether you are a child, a man, or a woman – in your mind’s eye and with your heart – sincerely consider that you are a child, a child who struggles with the deep constant feeling that suggests there, indeed, is much more to life and our vast immense universe than what you see, hear and touch…that there is much more to yourself than what you presently remember or can possibly imagine”……..John

A good interview of and a good overview by Bob Dean:

Posted by John Foster January 7, 2018…..   Highly recommended:

Many people have suffered and benefited as he has described it.

He has arrived in a good place. It is one of the best explanations I’ve heard.

If you don’t want to know, don’t watch it.

A seemingly valid modern video showing the disappearances, movement, and appearances of strange UFO crafts:

Believe it or not, this video credibly represents in some detail what others and I saw concerning the disappearances, movement, and appearances of the crafts, objects, men and beings over a period of 46+ years.

See the article featuring this same video below for an explanation of the disappearances, movement, and appearances of these crafts and the crafts others and John saw on many occasions over a period of 46+ years.



This story literally is mind boggling!

Written by John Foster January 5, 2018….    I believe it is so important, I have devoted the last three decades of my life trying to understand what actually happened and how it affects our human culture, from our very beginnings.

I have written three books concerning what most people understand to be UFO encounters. More specifically the books give you detailed information concerning my and others’ so-called UFO encounters that we experienced together.

The first book is titled Eminent Discovery – a lifetime of UFO experiences. It consists of about 360 pages. It took me 14 years to complete. This was because of the immense amount of information I received from what I call “a flood of recollections” in 1986/1987. My recollections were related to actual but clandestine UFO encounters those other people and I had experienced since a couple of years after my birth. I was born in 1937. Most of us mysteriously forgot most of what took place during the encounters. But several of the others and especially I could remember some strange things that had occurred during those 46+ years.

My flood of recollections was completely overwhelming. I nearly died from massive heart attacks and heart surgery, other serious health problems and surgeries. This was after I established without a doubt that my memories were true and accurate, after I was asked to go public with my story. I was somewhat totally shocked and devastated for about ten years. My doctors told me I could die at any time for about ten years, but I was asked to give some public talks and give interviews to some major and minor newspapers, TV and radio programs from time to time.

My first book Eminent Discovery explains what happened and how it happened in some detail. I wrote it for the record. Included in the book  are more than 140 illustrations that represent what the others and I saw during the encounters.

I wrote the second book To Earth From Heaven to explain more about the complexity of the encounters and to give you a more enlightened understanding of what UFO encounters actually are. Included are detailed descriptions of several unusual characteristics of the encounters so that you can see how the encounters have affected our human lives since the creation of humankind.

Because the story was (and still is) so complex and lengthy,  I wrote a smaller third book called Eminent Discovery Illustration Picture book. Included are more of my drawings that represent what the others and I visually witnessed during the encounters. Short comments explain briefly what happened, where and when.

You can order the books from or by clicking in the black strip menu above. Or you can request signed copies from me by making a comment below under “comments.”    The books are offered in paperback or ebook formats. The ebooks are very inexpensive….$2.99 each. I offer them to you and expect to make no money. I have sacrificed thousands of dollars and thousands of hours so that I can simply understand what actually happened and so I can pass this life-changing astonishing information on to you.


I definitely know that this story is true and accurate:

Written by John Foster January 3, 2018…  I definitely know that this story is true and accurate as I have described it here, in the video interviews I’ve given, and in the books I’ve authored…just as real as you sitting there reading today, and as real as me, right now, writing.

Several witnesses clearly recall parts of a few of my (our) strange UFO encounters where they all saw the crafts, objects and/or lights. Two recall hearing the voice speak to us, one from thin air and a strange object and the other from a brilliant light or illuminated craft. I recall all of these incidences in detail. Therefore it is established for me and those witnesses that the strange crafts and strange objects were indeed real and that the voice also was real. I saw and heard the same as they saw and heard, as well as much, much more.

This without a doubt establishes the fact that the crafts, objects and voice were real, most likely in our three dimensional reality as we recall them being real. Still other witnesses recall mysterious crafts and lights as I recall them. This along with many other similarities related to the modern UFO experiences of other people and with many similar strange happenings that have been described throughout written history, especially mysterious happenings that are described in The Bible, indicates strongly that those mysterious historical happenings most likely occurred very close to what has been described, just as it was written or very close to what was written.

I have been very careful to write and convey all of the information here and in my books and videos accurately, especially because I feel other humans should have a great need to know about it, especially at this time…a time when our human culture is progressing technically, and in many other ways, in leaps and bounds. This is an obvious indication that we are being influenced in a variety of ways from beyond our simple five senses. I essentially have been told verbally that they are once again here to improve us as human beings, before we destroy ourselves.

10. Today’s Featured Foster UFO Story….an ongoing series #10

#10 Living life on Earth is much more than most of us believe it is.

As I’ve stated before, the story of my 46+ years of so-called UFO encounters is extremely lengthy and complex. During the encounters, the other people who were with me and I received verbally, and by conjecture, information that seem to defy what we knew about science, religion and history. As a matter of fact some of the strange phenomenon we experienced physically seemed to defy science, religion and history. For instance, I was informed in perfect English that I was being trained, conditioned and educated to perform a task in my later years. The information came from a voice whose origin I couldn’t see and what seemed to be very mysterious but normal men who just seemed to have arrived from nowhere.

I know, you possibly think I am crazy or have severe psychosis. However, I have witnesses to parts of some encounters, I have been checkout psychologically by some renown psychologists and psychiatrists, and there are an enormous number of facts and happenings that date from the present back into prehistory…facts and happenings that indicate my memories are true and accurate.

Considering that you now know that others and I most probably have experienced strange so-called UFO encounters over that period of 46+ years, you also must be puzzled by the strange phenomenon we witnessed and sometimes lived; i.e. you must be very puzzled if you believe me.

Because of the strange phenomenon we experienced, because many others have experienced similar encounters, and because recalling the encounters has been emotionally difficult, I know evidence of what now seems to be an expanding world reality is also sometimes mentally and emotionally difficult to perceive.

Another way to put it is this: As above, when we experienced the encounters, the phenomenon that seemed to defy what most of us know as science, religion and history sometimes was difficult to comprehend. In many cases that sometimes was because of the confusion and what seemed to be the disorientation we felt as the bizarre events took place. This also occurred as we were given verbal information from someone we sometimes couldn’t see or from men who just seemed to have arrived from nowhere. Those men seemed to be normal men dressed in street cloths, sometimes in an instant standing right beside us. And we sometimes saw a man come walking and talking up close to us, at times from a mysterious distortion in the atmosphere.

I know…it’s hard to believe. However, there are similar events recorded in legend, in historical religious documents, and in reports of modern UFO encounters experienced by others.

It’s important to know that all of those mysterious events were orchestrated by who I call “the mysterious intelligences.”

In my judgement, the bizarreness of the phenomenon indicates that our normal individual perception of life on Earth includes much more than what we normally perceive though our five human senses. This is particularly evident because there are many other people who experience the same….possibly millions.


Human perception beyond the limited five senses

After analyzing the intricate details of what happened during many encounters, I have come to the conclusion that there is much more to life than what we normally perceive through the five human senses. There are things that happen to some of us or many of us that we don’t normally recall consciously…some of those things are what you would call normal experiences and some not so normal…such as UFO encounters that are orchestrated by other mysterious individuals.

(Example:  The drawing is of a craft materializing above my brother-in-law and a friend while hunting…about 1977. Yet, only half of the craft became visible. It swirled small spot lights on its bottom and made my brother-in-law and friend appear to be a swirling speckled array of radiance.)

Because many or most of the happenings that occurred during the encounters were orchestrated by an intelligence or intelligences (we many times couldn’t see), it was and is now obvious we were not totally in control of ourselves or the situations. Most often, I am surmising, we were only somewhat in control of our emotional and physical reactions…but only to some extent in varying degrees. In some cases, it seemed as if the mysterious intelligences were in total control…therefore somewhat explaining our confusion and disorientation at times.

Seeing things that were not normal and feeling things that were not normal, such as feeling ill or disoriented when inside a volume of distorted atmosphere, I believe involved the five senses, but also something beyond them. The intelligences even told us at times that they were improving us as human beings…the improvement process sometimes involving what I call conditioning sessions inside the strange objects and craft. During those conditioning sessions I sometimes saw a light that came up from some distance away and hovered just in front of me, directly in front of my forehead. I would then feel excruciating forces on my body and mind. I would sometimes yell out that I couldn’t stand it anymore and they would tell me to hold on, that it wouldn’t last much longer. When I thought I might pass out, the forces and the light would gradually fade away. A few times I would  then see the light hovering about head high some distance away…and I sometimes discovered that I was floating a foot or so above the ground.

Well, if you think about it, what we see, hear, feel, smell and touch also is a mystery, the real phenomenon surrounding each of the five senses a mystery of sorts. That’s because all physical senses are nothing more than mysterious electrical impulses stimulated by the outside world…impulses that travel the nerves to our brains who in various ways interpret what we saw, heard, felt, smelled and touched. It’s our brain in cooperation with our mind that tries to make sense of it all no matter what happens next. But it (the brain/mind) tries to make sense of it all only through memory and I suspect many other mysterious faculties that most of us common folk don’t yet completely understand. Those faculties, I now know are directly connected to mysterious intelligences we don’t normally see.

If you think about it, common life on Earth interpreted through the five senses is not that different than the UFO encounters others and I have experienced. It’s just experienced within narrower boundaries.

I have met many other people who have experience similar UFO encounters and they in different ways and to different degrees feel the same, eventually most understanding that life on Earth is much more than most of us believe it is.

The conversation goes on and on…too extensive to include here.

10 Today’s Featured Foster UFO Story — a continuing series #8

#8 The strange phenomenon those people with me and I witnessed is described nearly perfectly in The Bible…

The following is an excerpt from Chapter 14 in the book Eminent Discovery. It conveys the idea that the other people who were with me and I experienced happenings and received information that are similar, to varying degrees, to passages in The Bible – from Genesis through Revelations.

(My motifs here are simply to convey the information as accurately as I can.)

From Chapter 14 of the book Eminent Discovery: (…the information improved in some cases)

…I re-read the Bible and discovered the same phenomenon I had witnessed was somewhat accurately described at various places from Genesis through Revelations. The manifestation of angels from and God himself in a cloud (cloud of fog?) seemed extremely important. God spoke from a cloud several times and from other places where the prophets couldn’t see him, just as I and those with me heard a voice from what seemed to an invisible being who was sometimes in a cloud or fog – and was sometimes not.    Continue reading

#7   My View Of The Nature Of Our Universe – Life’s Sense

(This is a republication that was previously a part of It was Posted on May 7, 2017 by jafos.)

Life’s Sense
An unusual temporary rationalization concerning the meaning of life

by John Foster

My View Of The Nature Of Our Universe is a series of articles explaining my understandings of reality. The series reveals my growing understandings as I continuously reflect on the enormous number of so-called UFO encounters others and I experienced over a period of 46+ years…as well as the unusual interactions others and I experienced with “the familiar strangers” and the unusual UFO and spiritual sightings and encounters we had after my 1986/1987 flood of recollections.

My 1986/1987 flood of recollections occurred throughout an intense period of a few months when, at age 48 and 49, I spontaneously recalled the enormous number of encounters that had occurred since my birth, which was in 1937. As I recall, I was never alone during the encounters except for a few short episodes. There are some people who were with me who recall parts of a few encounters…enough to convince them and me that my memories are accurate. I found the encounters occurred from coast to coast and from Canada to Mexico, most occurring in Eastern Nebraska and in and around the city of Lincoln…also many occurring in Wyoming and Colorado.

(As an example of the many encounters others and I experienced, the drawing above represents what my wife, oldest daughter, and I saw while walking to our youngest daughter’s house in the early 1980s. The elongated windowed saucer manifested out of churning twisting clouds…like those boiling clouds that are displayed in the movie Encounters Of The Third Kind. The elongated windowed saucer then descended and flew in front of us over the children’s home shown.)

Today’s Feature Foster UFO Story… on-going series…..#6

#6   I know some people have a difficult time believing. However, I can assure you this UFO story is real…true, authentic, and accurate!

If it is truly true and accurate, I would suggest that it would be to your benefit if you knew
more about it. I believe it could benefit your life immensely.

For at least 70 years, while I have been alive, we as a culture have been trying to decide if UFOs and close encounters are real…or not. And it seems as if most human beings still don’t really know if they are real. Even though millions of people around the world have seen UFOs, some interacting closely with the so-called Ets, when it comes right down to it they still have a hard time believing.    Continue reading

#5 — My father mysteriously disappears in a blue beam of light

Memphis State Lake Recreation Area Nebraska — Summer about 1949:

We were camping with friends, another family of four.

After we children spotted craft while fishing, we ran and told our parents about it. Bob and his family reacted like any normal humans. They sped in their car toward the upper end of the lake, in pursuit of the craft, while my mother decided it might be dangerous and we should stay at the campground. I didn’t feel that threatened and wondered why she thought it might be dangerous.

(My mother, like a few other encounter participants, remembered a little about previous encounters during current encounters. She feared the craft and would make decisions to protect especially me. When we first saw a craft, for instance, she would insist that I get in the back seat of our car between my two older sisters. Therefore, I have to consider she sometimes, somehow, knew of the mysterious connection between the craft and me. She died in 1968, well before my recollections.)    Continue reading

#4 Evidence of Alien genetic engineering of the human race
Posted on July 11, 1918 by jafos

My (our) 1950 UFO encounter at the Bethany Grade School Playground is the singular most obvious encounter that obtrusively suggested that the so called Ets have been and most likely are genetically engineering at least a number of human individuals. This was especially evident during my experience that evening on “the examination table.” (Ref: Chapter 2 in the book Eminent Discovery)

Besides the fact that certain elements presented by the two strange beings, one to my left and one to my right, while I was on the examination table later during the encounter, it was evident previously that the “mysterious intelligences,” who apparently were in the windowed saucer that was hovering above us, had a strong connection with at least a few of us in the past.    Continue reading
