#12 An unusual manifestation of a UFO craft – just above the water

While many people have witnessed the actual manifestation of a so-called UFO craft, few have been able to explain what really happened. I believe this is because we are so startled and puzzled by the unusual phenomenon. I also believe the phenomenon physically but mysteriously inhibits our perception in some way we can’t understand…i.e, we have been conditioned in some strange way so we don’t really want to pursue explanations in detail. We have been conditioned to  consider UFO phenomenon “forbidden knowledge.”

I believe if we as a culture would take the time to record our observations in detail, we as a culture could understand the phenomenon more deeply. It would not only benefit us as individuals but benefit us as a human culture, especially in our understanding of science…not to mention our understanding of religion and history. Because so many people have witnessed the manifestations, I believe it is to our advantage as a human culture to try to understand what actually happens from as many points of view as we can.

Many photos have been taken of crafts that seem to be only partly manifested. They appear to be translucent or partly transparent. Yet, as the crafts develop, they later seem to be perfectly solid metallic Unidentified Flying Objects.

I can testify that this indeed does happen as I have witnessed it many times…believe it or not. I also have conversed with, but most often listened to, mysterious entities who I call “the mysterious intelligences”…those who are responsible for the crafts appearances.

As an example of the unusual manifestations, the following is a narration of the very unusual appearance of a craft that materialized just after sunset at Lake Ogallala in Nebraska – summertime, 1948 or 1949.

(You need to know that I most often do not want to dazzle you with descriptive writing when I try to explain what actually happened during the many encounters others and I have experienced. I am serious about wanting to inform you the reader, simply and accurately, so you also can try to assimilate it into your store house of knowledge – so you can use it to expand your reality from your point of view. I have nothing to gain but the satisfaction of helping others try to understand more fully the true nature of our vast mysterious universe.)


(Please note that the northern shore shown on the map was further south, forming the two bays.)

My family of five and the Collingsworths, a family of four, were camping and fishing at Lake Ogallala. The sun had sunk below the western horizon well before we began fishing in the very northern part of the lake, along the shore of a small bay on the west side of the lake. Yet, the sky still glowed a medium light blue from a common reflection after sunset. Bob and his sister were fishing on the north side of the bay and my youngest sister and I were fishing on the south side of the bay…both on the west side of the lake.

I believe we had experienced previous UFO sightings and possibly some short encounters that day. However they were tucked safely away in our individual subconsciousness; I could tell that I was unexplainably uneasy and I felt the others were also. We had been somewhat rambunctious and our folks sent us to fish at this location so we could settle down a little.

Suddenly Bob’s sister seemed more than a little unsettled as she concentrated on something behind me. As she stared at whatever it was, she became more and more upset. She then yell out, “What is that?”

I turned around and saw what I now know was a craft manifesting in a distinct volume of gray fog or haze. It was on the east side of the lake about 75 yards away from us. My sister turned and also saw it.

I turned back toward the north to talk with Bob and his sister about what we had just seen, but Bob’s sister began to yell, pointing at the mysterious manifestation of the craft. I turned again and saw the craft was completely solid, but it was spinning fast and silently in one spot, just very few feet from the east shore line and very few feet above the water.

At this time, as I recall, we heard a voice speaking from the craft as if someone was speaking through a loud speaker. However, it seemed to talk continuously as if it were reciting a pre-planned message. A few times the message was broken by what seemed to be technical difficulties with the loud speaker apparatus. Eventually we no longer could hear the message.

I turned back and Bob’s sister declared she was going to inform our folks because whatever it was could be dangerous. As she was leaving to inform our parents, the three of us turned again and stared as intensely as possibly at the unbelievable scene.

As the craft continued to spin, it also began to illuminate a yellow color. But the illumination didn’t seem to be from heat due to the spinning but the illumination seemed to be a natural intense glowing of the craft, as if it mysteriously had changed its physical nature. Or it seemed as if it were being illuminated from a source we couldn’t see. As the spinning got faster, the illumination got brighter. The spinning then began to slow down and the illumination on the outside of the craft got dimmer, except for a horizontal band just below the top. When the spinning stopped, the outside surface of the craft seemed to be a medium to dark metallic gray and I could see rectangular windows just below the top. The outside was not spinning. Yet, to our astonishment, we could see something on the inside of the craft or the entire interior continue to spin fast. Whatever it was inside, still spinning fast, was still brilliantly illuminated a yellow color.

It’s interesting, as I remember, the brilliant spinning yellow glow, when it first began, seem to burst into view.

Looking back at Bob for a time, then looking back at the craft, as I recall, it seems as if the craft began to move in our direction, but it was not glowing or spinning, or it might have been spinning slow.

About this time Bob’s sister returned from telling our folks about the craft. But apparently they were not interested. She took a seat again along the north side of the bay and began fishing.

My next memory is of another craft or the same craft manifesting between Bob and his sister and my sister and me…hovering about 12 feet above the water. It then very gradually moved west and gradually disappeared above the water.

I got so concerned I walked around the bay and stood behind Bob and his sister. I believe we witnessed another manifestation at that time. However, I don’t really recall what happened after that. My next memories are of us returning to our respective family campsites and getting ready to go to bed. If it was like other encounters I had experienced, we might have had a time loss, which I will explain in another or other writings.


This experience demonstrated a few more mysterious elements than other more typical manifestations that I and others have observed. It seems to convey a mysterious unspoken message, or you could say it seems as if it were a demonstration concerning an extension of our common reality, a reality of expanded or extended physics and chemistry we as a human culture are not yet aware of.

I also believe other things might be deduced from my observations. One thought has come to me in terms of other parallel universes we possibly don’t normally see. The message as demonstrated could be telling us that the dimension from where the craft came might also include a similar time/space. But in relation to our normal time/space that time/space, normally not seen, could be revolving…i.e, in relation to our time/space reality. This would indicate that other parallel dimensions (if they truly exist – and my encounters suggest that they do) are not necessarily parallel, but angular or rotating, or moving in a number ways or in infinite ways in relation to our physical earth.

I hopefully will include additional observations and a couple of other sightings that involved the craft spinning in another article.

About jafos

I am a 80 year old retired research and development electro/mechanical engineer with experience in the nuclear, aerospace, fluidic, civil and commercial fields...home builder, general contractor, artist, lecturer, author. Up until 1986, at age 48, I could recall some strange things that had occurred from my very early childhood...but I really couldn't understand them. Then in late 1986 through early 1987, in a very short time, I recalled, in extreme detail, an enormous number of so-called UFO encounters that had occurred throughout my life. Needless to say, I became almost totally devastated; my entire life was turned up-side down. A few witnesses have since recalled some of what I recalled, enough to convince me and them I am not psychotic or imaginative. In other words, believe it or not these unbelievable things actually happened. I have spent the last 30 years researching, writing and trying to understand. As a result of my intense efforts, I now can offer you three books and a website (http://www.johnfosterufos.com) to help you and humankind try to understand some of the hidden mysteries of life and UFOs. The mysterious intelligences connected to my encounters have told me that they are "the monitors and Keepers of the earth" and are responsible to a hierarchy that includes "the arch angels Michael and Gabriel," who are responsible to the entity we have know as "Christ," who is in charge of this corner of our immense complex universe. They explained further that they are not allowed to interfere in the affairs of humankind except at certain times, when things are going awry or are dangerous. They said this is one of those times, one of those eras. They continued to state that if they hadn't interfered in the past, we would have destroyed ourselves...and that if they don't interfere now and in the future, we will indeed destroy ourselves. Strictly for your own benefit, take a look at the information here on http://www.johnfosterufos.com and read the books I've written in order to understand in some detail what this is all about. The website and books can give you insight into how so-called UFO encounters have affected our sciences, religions, and history...and how they most likely will affect our future.
