Three of The Best UFO Trace Cases
(New Bob White Evidence Included)

The following are some of what are referred to as the
best UFO cases that have left physical trace evidence
behind. Some of the cases contain the most up to date research
yet (as of 2009) and are the strongest evidence for the existence of what
most assume to be extraterrestrial piloted craft. This the compilation
of those cases in a more condensed format, as I believe the greatest tool
for any Ufologist or any form of UFO phenomina truth seeking is to educate
the masses with the best cases presented in a neutral, easy to read format
so that everyone can make up their own mind. For if we educate the masses
we can get more peoples attention to this very real and serious topic.
The following are in chronological order starting
with the most recent.
The Bob White Artifact

This case has some breaking news that was just made
public last night in the History Channels UFO Hunters. We
will get to that in a moment, but first a brief history of the incident.
White and a friend were
driving from Denver to Las Vegas on a desolate highway near the Colorado-Utah
border. It was 2 or 3 a.m., he said, and White was sleeping in the passenger
seat. At one point, his friend woke him up and pointed out a strange light
in the distance. White didn't think much of it and went back to sleep.
Then his friend woke him up again.
This time, White said, the lights were blinding.
He got out of the car and stared,
dumbfounded. The object was about 100 yards in front of him, he said, "and
it was huge ... absolutely huge."
In time, he said, the lights
bolted toward the sky and connected with a pair of neon, tubular lights
— "the mother ship," White guesses now. And just like that, he said, the
entire contraption zipped eastward through the Colorado sky and disappeared.
"What I saw," White said, "was
not of this Earth."
As the craft flew away, White
said, he noticed an orange light falling to the ground. A locator probe?
Something that simply broke off? It was red hot when he reached it, he
said, but in time it cooled enough to pick up. White shoved the object
into the trunk of the car.
The object is about 7-1/2 inches
long and shaped like a teardrop. It has a coarse, metallic exterior and
weighs less than 2 pounds. It looks a bit like it could be a petrified
pine cone and is composed primarily of aluminum.
Did the ‘Holy Grail’
of Ufology literally fall from the sky that night? Well Bob White has since
had the object tested multiple times by such renown labs as Los
Alamos National Lab. In 1996 White took a piece of the object to Los Alamos
for testing, according to him the lab first stated this object was of extraterrestrial
nature, later they retracted this statement and gave him a “misleading”
report on the object. I can not find the actual copy of the test results
but it was shown on last nights UFO Hunters and is referenced in
many research sites. It is important to note that White also took and passed
a polygraph test and signed a notarized statement of what happened that
night. Interestingly enough further research as shown some striking similarities
Dr. Robert Gibbons,
former scientist with NASA, and current Executive Director of the Museum,
made this statement. "We recently came across scientific data that linked
Bob's object with the planet Mars.
The most recent information on the artifact comes just
recently as mentioned earlier. Two independent labs stated that the chemical
composition of this artifact “shouldn't exist” and shows complex isotopes
and nano chemical structure, that even now (and especially in 1985) don’t
exist. The artifact is also apparently giving off some kind of radiation
as well, this has been documented with dental x-ray films and mechanical
malfunctions of electronic safes. There have been over ten labs to study
this artifact and the results have been oddly split down the middle, some
labs say it is nothing, but others say it is something extraordinary. In
this case it seems the newest information is the most solid, currently
there is no video available online of last nights UFO Hunters, as
it is new. I will post it when I can get a hold of it. This is the hottest
case in Ufology right now (thus why this is the longest entry in my OP)
and has some strong potential to break wide open. It is odd that this object
is made up of
70% aircraft grade aluminum, as well many complex isotopes
of aluminum and other rare elements. It is important to note that
not all labs have stated this is anything extraordinary, but considering
the rest of the case and the reluctance of the labs to come forward and
work with other labs that did find something one could postulate that this
is intentional disinformation, which is not unusual in cases in Ufology.
Isotope abundance ratio tests
were performed on Bob's object in May, 1999 in La Jolla, CA and the numbers
are virtually the same as obtained from Martian meteorite samples. The
ratio of isotopes of Strontium for the QUE 94201 meteorite found in Antarctica
in 1994 was 0.701. The ratio of isotopes of Strontium for Bob's object
was 0.712. The ratio of isotopes of Strontium for the Shergotty meteorite
found India in 1865 was 0.723. Bob's object is right in the middle of two
proven Martian meteorites!"
The Martian meteorite data came
from a scientific paper published on the website of the Planetary Science
Research Discoveries, an educational website supported by NASA's Office
of Space Sciences and by the Hawaii Space Grant Consortium.
Dr. Gibbons is calling for more
scientific tests on the Bob White object to prove its origin once and for
Over 10 labs have tested this object and some of the
conclusions in favor (as the ones against simply said it was normal) are
Dr. Robert Gibbons (former jobs; NASA, Northrop-Grumman,
and Hughes)- Joined White in 2002 to help give his expertise as a physicist.
As stated before the electric safe where this object was stored at one
time malfunctioned three days in a row as the object was doing something
to the batteries, draining the power. After this Gibbons ran a dental x-ray
film exposure of the object and detected radiation coming from what he
calls “2 lobes” in the object, the films match up to support this theory.
The “lobes” look like two black spots in the center of the artifact.
Los Alamos Isotope
Abundance Test- This is highly disputed and believed to be disinformation
directly from the United States government. White claims that after the
initial test the lead doctor (which was called in special) called and told
him “I have been waiting for this my whole life”, he also reportedly repeatedly
said “aluminum,aluminum” in the sense that he detected complex isotopes
of an unknown origin, which is what the original report was. However this
was quickly changed according to White.
Spectrometry- A few years ago a mass spectrometry test was run on the
object and apparently could not identify a small percentage of the object,
which leads many to believe that is because it is an unknown and totally

White was not happy
with the results of this test and stated he believed it was intentional
disinformation. This is one of the tests that are dismissive of his claim,
but still shows the high aluminum content. Are they omitting something?
Or do they not have the technology there( at the time,which was 1996) to
do a better analysis? Or are they telling the truth?
The following is the newest, most up to date information
on the analysis of the artifact. This information was just released last
All information is from last nights episode of UFO
Hunters on the History Channel
Wow, amazing, this adds to the ever growing list of overwhelming
evidence supporting the UFO phenomina.
Expert 1: Physicist Chris Ellis, expert in solid state
physics, aluminum alloys, and superconductors. Test result showed the object
is an alloy of
unknown origin. It is also his expert opinion that
this is a manufactured alloy.
Expert 2: Research Scientist David Lamb, expert in physics
and material science. Also works at a major US university. Findings were
Diffraction Analysis: The artifact showed an unique “amorphous peak
and is a polycrystalline semiconductor”.
To his knowledge this type of material is not found anywhere on Earth.
Also there is silver concentration of 4.3%, here on Earth silver is used
in this form by experimental scientist as a catalyst for a superconductor.
It is sprayed over aluminum and thus is in small amounts as we see here
from the test results. He postulated that this could be used on a craft
as a way to dispel magnetic fields, especially in space as there is no
energy expenditure needed for superconductivity. Lamb has further speculated
that this artifact is in fact a “quasi-crystal of complex structure.” This
is only in its early stages on Earth in the form of nanotechnology.
Hoax or not?
This case is a tornado of information back and forth,
with some being supportive and some being dismissive. This is the hottest
case right now and likely will get hotter very soon. Some speculate that
White is trying to make money, as he is trying to sell the object for 10
million dollars and has made some other questionable decisions. However
as the case gets more attention and more and more tests are being performed
by top level scientists and labs (who want to remain unknown at present)
it seems that this may be the real deal. Just because the personality of
the person who has the object is not the most respectable and professional
not mean this isn’t real. This case deserves the most attention right
now in my opinion and definitely warrants getting the information out and
Not likely, as the latest expert opinion (Physicist
Chris Ellis) states this is a manufactured object, plus the composition
of it is not what meteors are made of.
This is obviously a very heated topic from both sides,
but it needs to be researched much more. I believe this is the closest
we have ever been to a actual “smoking gun”, not yet, but close.
The Falcon Lake Encounter
May 19th, 1967 in Falcon Lake,
Witness: Stephen Michalak

This is a case where close contact with a UFO was devastating
to the witness, who suffered severe burns and sickness after coming into
contact with a UFO.

Stephen rose early that
morning, heading into the vast beauty of the wilderness. Only a couple
of hours had transpired before he found a quartz vein by a small brook.
After breaking for a quiet lunch, he resumed his work. At about 12:15 P.M.
his attention was drawn away from his labors by the sound of geese passing
overhead.Looking up to see them fly over, he was shocked to see two red,
glowing, elongated objects descending from the skies. As they came ever
closer, their shape was defined more as disc-shaped. As he stood mesmerized
by the sight, one of the craft abruptly stopped and hovered in midair.
The other continued its downward flight until it landed on a big, smooth
rock only about 150 feet from him. The hovering craft began to move away,
and as it went, it changed colors from red to orange, and finally gray.It
disappeared into the clouds above him. The landed craft also began to change
its color in the same pattern. Finally, the gray turned into what appeared
to be "hot stainless steel," with a golden glow.Michalak had been wearing
his protective welding glasses earlier, and now they protected his eyes
from the brilliant purple lights shining through openings in the front
of the craft. He could now smell something..like sulfur, and hear a type
of hissing sound. Curiosity overcame him. After approximately 30 minutes,
he was frightened to see a door open from the side of the object. He could
now see inside the craft!
Here is the police
report that he made that day.
The interior was brilliantly
lighted. Pulling all the courage together that he possessed, he moved ever
closer to the other worldly craft. As he reached a point about 60 feet
from the mysterious flying machine, he could hear two voices conversing
above other sounds coming from inside the object.Being a multi-linguist,
he tried several languages to communicate with whoever... or whatever was
inside. All of his efforts failed to draw a response from inside.Undaunted,
he moved even closer. He reached the door, and stuck his head inside. He
saw a large panel of different colored lights, and other light beams crossing
in different directions. Michalak would later describe the flashing lights
as resembling lights on a computer. He saw no one in the craft, and decided
not to push his luck any farther. He moved back away from the door. Suddenly,
three panels moved together, hiding the door. His attention was now on
the exterior of the craft. He later described the surface as "highly polished
colored glass with no breaks or seams in its surface.”He reached out his
hand to touch the polished surface, and his glove was melted. Suddenly
the object suddenly moved, and as it did, a vented opening was exposed,
like a type of exhaust port. He estimated it's size as about nine inches
high by six inches wide.Heat was vented through the opening, setting Michalak's
shirt and undershirt on fire. He was now in great pain. He quickly tore
off his top garments, and turned to see the craft ascending back into the
skies. He felt a rush of air as it made it's departure. He could still
smell the craft after it had disappeared.Knowing that he needed medical
attention, he quickly tried to mark the spot. Using rocks, pine cones,
loose dirt, anything he could find, he made a landmark. A severe headache
now was complicated by a sick stomach. He broke into a cold sweat, and
vomited. On his way back to his motel, he had to stop several times to
ease his stomach pain. After being refused help from a passing police officer,
he finally reached his motel. It was now 4:00 P.M. He entered the coffee
shop, and asked someone to recommend a doctor. The nearest doctor was in
Kenora, 45 miles east of Falcon Lake. Because of the distance, he decided
to return home instead of making the trip to Kenora. The next bus would
not arrive for about four hours, so he rested in his room, and phoned his
wife. He told her only that he was in an accident, but was OK. He instructed
her to have their son meet him at the bus terminal in Winnipeg. He arrived
there at 10:45 P.M. His son took him to the Misericordia Hospital immediately.
Summary of Physical Evidence
Severe, grid-like burns on chest of witness.
Severe radiation-type sickness associated with close contact
with the craft
1. The only other possible scenario is that this is
a hoax, but considering the physical evidence involved that is highly unlikely.
It is important to mention that Mr. Michalak did not receive any money
at all for telling his story and paid for all his medical bills (which
were many because he had to go to over a dozen doctors for his injuries)
himself. The police officer who took the report stated that he did not
smell alcohol on his breath either. The officer also stated that it looked
like Mr. Michalak tried to rub ash on his chest, which is something commonly
done for burns in the wild.
STEPHEN MICHALAK UFO MYSTERY
At 12:15 p.m. on May 19, 1967,
Stephen Michalak, who was engaged in some amateur prospecting near Falcon
Lake, on the Manitoba/Ontario border, was startled to see two cigar-shaped
objects with "bumps" on them, glowing red and descending. One object stopped
in mid-air, hovered, and then silently rose and disappeared into the clouds.
The other object, about thirty-five feet in diameter and twelve feet high,
landed about 160 feet away from Michalak. A door opened in the side of
the craft and Michalak heard voices within. He called out in English and
Russian and other langages, but got no response. He was able to walk up
to the craft and actually touch it, but it took off as he stood near it,
burning his chest and setting his shirt on fire. He went to a doctor, who
found a pattern of burn marks in a grid on his chest. He suffered from
nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss. Radioactive contamination of the
site was much debated, as was the truth of his story .
Stephen Michalak of Winnipeg,
was prospecting near Falcon Lake, Manitoba, when he encountered two UFOs,
one of which landed on a large, flat rock about 160 feet away from him.
After having approached the object and looked inside, the object moved,
and something like an exhaust vent was now in front of him. A blast of
hot gas shot from these holes onto his chest, setting his shirt and undershirt
on fire and causing him severe pain, and leaving burn marks in the shape
of a grid.

Stephen Michalak Encounter at Falcon Lake
The Socorro UFO Landing
April 24th, 1964 Socorro, New
Witness: Officer Lonnie Zamora
Image courtesy of science.howstuffworks.com
is one of the top cases in Ufology and also has the primary witness being
a police officer. This report is also in the
Project Bluebook. Here is a brief report on what happened that day.
The witness in the Socorro
case is a well-respected policeman, Lonnie Zamora, who claimed in the report
he filed (included in Project Blue Book, Brad Steiger, Ed., 1976) that
he saw a flame in the sky, "bluish and sort of orange too...sort of motionless
flame, slowly descending...
Summary of Physical Evidence
narrower at top than at bottom...Sun
was to west and did not help vision. Had green sunglasses over prescription
glasses. Could not see bottom of flame because it was behind the hill....noise
was a roar, not a blast..." The policeman drove around the area trying
to see the flame again, and said he suddenly came across "a shiny type
object ... oval in shape. It was smooth - no windows or doors. ... seemed
like O in shape and I at first glance took it to be overturned car." He
also described "two people in white coveralls...two persons..." Zamora
said he saw the two people at a distance of 150 to 200 yards, and that
"they appeared normal in shape... but possibly they were small adults or
large kids." He also noted "what appeared to be two legs of some type from
the object to the ground...the two legs were at the bottom of the object,
slanted outwards to the ground." Zamora then got closer to the object,
got out of his car, heard a loud roar, saw a flame, ran, bumped his leg,
lost his glasses, and kept on going. He saw the object fly up, and move
10 to 15 feet above the ground, and then leave the area "travelling very
fast." He radioed his dispatcher to look out his window for "an object
.... it looks like a balloon." Nearby, the bushes were still smoldering.
News reports in the local paper, El Defensor Chieftain, also mentioned
"an unidentified tourist" who remarked about how "aircraft flew low around
here," and that the strange object was a "funny-looking helicopter, if
that's what it was."
Zamora's earnest nature and credibility,
along with the physical traces, brought the Socorro "landing" to national
attention. J. Allen Hynek came to town, and was very interested in the
pod-like tracks and burn marks at the scene. Ray Stanford wrote a whole
book about the incident, Socorro Saucer in a Pentagon Pantry. Phil Klass
came to investigate. The Socorro event has appeared in numerous books and
articles, and was even featured on Unsolved Mysteries.

So what really happened there? Is a distinguished police
officer lying, or perhaps he was mistaken on what he saw? There are several
alternate hypotheses which I will go over now.
Image of test log courtesy
Propaganda hoax by the cities mayor or hoax by college
physics students. Either one of these are highly unlikely as there is no
supporting evidence for either of these scenarios.
Test of Apollo lander or a helicopter carrying a Lunar
Surveyer. The lander scenario is not possible because there were no lander
prototypes operational in 1964. The Lunar Surveyor is more plausible of
an explanation, however after further research you can see from the range
log from Holloman AFB in Alamogordo, NM the only tests of the Surveyor
were conducted in the morning. Zamora’s sighting happened at 5:45 PM, although
tests can be carried out ‘off schedule’ there is no evidence that this
was the case on the evening of April 24th.
Of course any hot air balloon is out of the realm of
possibility because the maneuvers described by the witness. This case is
still officially open and unresolved, but the evidence is extremely strong
in favor of a UFO landing.The following is a direct quote from the investigators
of Project Bluebook:
"There is no doubt that
Lonnie Zamora saw an object which left quite an impression on him. There
is also no question about Zamora's reliability. He is a serious officer,
a pillar of his church, and a man well versed in recognizing airborne vehicles
in his area. He is puzzled by what he saw, and frankly, so are we. This
is the best documented case on record."
Here is some information on the surrounding plant life
and the fused sand…
Picture of the researchers investigating the area, you
can see some of the charred brush in the photograph.
When interviewed by
McDonald, Mayes reported that she and two others had worked on studying
physical evidence from the Socorro site, but she could not remember the
names of the others. According to Mayes, she had examined the site the
day after the event, and had gathered plant samples for analysis. Mayes
later determined that the plants which had allegedly been burnt by the
UFO's flames were, unusually, "completely dried out". (Druffel, 219) Mayes
also found no evidence of radiation, but found "two organic substances"
she was unable to identify. (Druffel, 219)
Mayes also reported to McDonald
an area of apparently "fused sand", where the sand had taken on a glassy
appearance, near where the object had allegedly landed and then departed.
The area of glassy sand was roughly triangular, measuring about 25 to 30
inches (760 mm) at its widest, though it gradually tapered down to about
1 inch wide; it seemed about a quarter of an inch thick. Mayes thought
the glassy areas looked as if a "hot jet hit it." (Druffel, 219)
We have a police officers testimony of seeing a
UFO land and two of its occupants coming out. Then we have physical evidence
left at the site in the form of burn marks and radiation type readings
in the area. All the alternative theories for this case are lax at best
in my opinion, but you can judge for yourself.
I wanted to do more, but seeing as my OP is going to
be 3 or 4 pages long already. I will post two more later on in an effort
to save room and for ease of reading. I picked these three cases for various
reasons, varying from witness credibility, tests done, and abundance of
physical trace evidence. There are many more, but these are near the top,
the Bob White artifact, in my opinion, is the top right now and need much
more research, as it easily warrants the time and money. I feel we
are getting closer than ever to the truth right now and the more information
gets out to the masses the faster we will get there.
