Besides posting book reviews, once in a while I will be posting articles on the subject of pulps. I hope we can generate more interest for the Blog. If you would like to share an article on the pulps, you can send me a message in the Comments of a post.
A Pennsylvania witness at Bensalem reported watching a "pulsating, blinking UFO whose undercarriage revealed it to be a triangle," according to testimony in Case 64490 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was driving home from New Jersey with his 20-month-old son in the vehicle and first saw the object along Galloway Road just after turning off of Byberry Street about 7:30 p.m. on March 14, 2015.
"I saw a pulsating, blinking object from the west which appeared stationary from where we were," the witness stated. "Since we live in an area with three airports (Phili, West Trenton and another small prop job airport whose name I am blanking on) I initially assumed it was an aircraft."
The witness is ruling out known objects from the local airports.
"Several things dispelled this view. 1. It started to descend whereas a plane from any of the three airports would be ascending in this direction (west to east). 2. It seemed, even from a distance, to be a huge aircraft larger than any of the smaller jets and planes flying in and out of West Trenton and the small prop job airport. 3. No other planes were sighted in this particular area at the time I continued to observe the object as I stopped at the red light at Galloway."
MUFON was an easy choice for me. Ever since I was a kid watching Buck Rodgers or Star Trek. When I was young I was drawn to anything about space. But we all grow up some day right?
Little did I know that years later, I was going to get the hell scared out of me. I am a Harley man so my girlfriend Betty Jean and I took a two-week scenic ride through Pennsylvania camping out of the bike. We came to a state park called Worlds End Campground of all names. The date was July 14, 2010, a beautiful day with clear skies.
When we went into the recreation center to pay for a camping spot, a Ranger started talking with my girlfriend. To know my gal, you would understand what a great conversationalist she is. As they chatted, I went back outside, got on the Harley and started it. Right away the Park Ranger, in a very serious manner said, "Some would understand a man in my position shouldn't be rudely interrupted when he's being friendly."
Reprinted from the February 2014 MUFON UFO Journal
This sighting report and its associated investigation was submitted to my friend Jan Harzan, now the Executive Director of MUFON, with my permission to refer this case file to Editor Roger Marsh at the MUFON UFO Journal on January, 6, 2014. It concerns a personal "Big Black Triangle" UFO Sighting that occurred just over eight years ago, one that I have sat on for the most part because of how badly this sighting disturbed my basic personal and professional paradigms. I still struggle with this very profound question: How can I consider myself a dispassionate UFO detective and researcher committed to sound investigative methodologies and forensic standards when I have now, me-myself, become a UFO witness and a claimant?
As of January 18, 2010, I became a prison cop for the state of Arizona, where at the time of this submission, I am currently assigned to a team devoted to the prevention of suicide by inmates within the walls of Arizona's most notorious lockdown. read more here

The tool that I use most often is my iPad. I resisted buying one for years and now I can't go a day without it. There are several apps for the iPad that are perfect for investigations and I want to cover a few of them here today. Read More

Missouri witness loses time after triangle UFO encounter
A Missouri witness at Union reported a two-hour time loss after watching a triangle-shaped UFO hovering below the clouds, according to testimony in Case 64426 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was at home cleaning rain gutters about 8:10 p.m. on March 24, 2015, when the incident began.
"I stood on the porch to see if the water was going through the gutter and down the drain," the witness stated. "I then heard what I thought was a jet or something to that effect. I thought it was kind of odd with the weather that was going on." Read more here
