Is there any proof that many different ET species are prowling the earth? Well, maybe not smoking gun evidence, but evidence enough to make most people scratch their heads in amazement.. It's been said to watch the skies. I say: "Watch the night skies, keep watching the night skies." (The Thing)
There are objects in the night sky that cannot be explained by any known source. These UFO objects, according to the best expert on spotting them, are best viewed within the first two hours of complete darkness after sunset. If these objects, the expert reasoned, are flying at night visibly cloaked, they should still give off heat signatures. They do.
Before the 2009 International UFO Congress, if someone had told me you could see UFOs with special night vision scopes I would have said they were dreaming. As the date of the 2009 International UFO congress was approaching, a friend of mine called me and mentioned some person named Ed Grimsley who would be doing some UFO spotting with night vision goggles each night of the Congress. I asked him how much it would cost to go out with Ed and he said he didn't know. According to Ed Grimsley, my friend said, "you can see UFOs anywhere". I thought in my head… yeah, sure.
This was a special conference for me because one of my contacts, and now friend, in the science field was coming to his first UFO conference. We were having an absolute blast at the conference and we booked our night to go out UFO spotting with Ed. The price was more than fair: it was free. My friend could only attend the weekend, so we booked with Ed for the night my friend flew in. I felt, in my own arrogance, that going in to this spotting adventure, I would be able to easily explain what they were seeing (having been an avid amateur astronom er when I was a young man). That night we assembled and were escorted outside of the hotel as cars pulled up and people filed in. This was all volunteer cars, gas and everything. There were 24 people in the group and they drove us to a local parking spot on the outskirts of Laughlin, which wasn't very far if you know Laughlin.

At first Ed was sitting on a little chair and when we all arrived he lectured us on the proper use of the scopes and the laser lights. He mentioned how some scopes had been stolen from him in the past, and, for that reason, when he shouted, "raise the scopes," we must raise them above out heads so they could be counted. He told us small groups would be formed and each group would be led by one of his friends with a scope. When something was spotted the person in the group who saw the object should use the laser to point the object out so the other groups could follow the objects with scopes. Remember, you can't see these objects with your eyes.
As we formed the groups what struck me was the utter darkness once we turned all light sources off. Remember I live in Brooklyn, NY and we don't get darkness like that. First thing spotted was a plane. We already knew not to laser unless sure. For a while there was nothing and people just passed the scopes around checking them out and looking around. But then my friend, Gary, an old timer to this conference, shouted, "Look," as he pointed at something I couldn't see with my eyes. As the groups followed his laser you could hear the groups shouting. Eventually I saw through the scope what everyone was pointing at… a pencil shaped object standing still. The object had been moving but then it suddenly stopped. As I watched the object it started moving really fast again, I could not believe it. Unfortunately, then I had to pass the scope. About ten minutes later, three oblong objects appeared. They traveled in unison and much too fast to be a satellite. Although Ed felt these objects were two hundred miles up, the truth was, you could not really tell. The objects seemed to be changing direction, not orbiting in a straight line. Then we witnessed 6 objects which to me seemed more round in appearance. They also traveled in complete unison and when they stopped, you could hear the whole group gasp. It shocked the hell out of me, to tell you the truth. We saw other objects traveling in groups of two or more and some that were alone. None of them resembled anything I have ever witnessed in the sky. None of these objects could be seen with the naked eye. Ed told us only the new generation three night vision goggles could detect them. Each one of the goggles cost $3,700.00.
However, the night was not over yet. As we were watching an object rose from the horizon in the opposite direction from where we had been spotting these objects. This object was different because you could see it with your eyes. It was egg shaped and seem to hover in place. We all flashed it with our lasers and as that happened, it flashed very brightly at us. Everyone shouted in amazement. I took the scope to see if I could tell where the lights was coming from. It seemed as the light diminished it was coming from the top of the object. As the object rose higher into the sky it disappeared from our eyes, but I could still see it on my scope. It changed directions for a while, but then as I watched it the object,t started to turn back toward the direction it had previously traveled…it then disappeared.
We had to leave then, but not without having to wait for five minutes so they could find a "missing" scope. It was obvious the person was trying to walk with it but he eventually gave it up. Not everyone in the UFO community is honest.
My friend was in shock. Not only did he go to his first UFO conference, but he had six separate UFO sightings. At the end we had no proof because no one was videoing these objects. Some in the group had grasped at straws for explanations and thought they may be birds migrating. However, checking with a wildlife expert the next day dissolved any possibility what we saw was birds: "Too late in the season for migration and they don't fly at night", was his answer. I knew they weren't birds.
My friends and I started to think how we could get our hands on one of these scopes and maybe a camcorder attachment. All of us believed the stock market was about to crash. I had been warning my friends for months. We didn't want to put that type of money out not knowing what would be happening. The next day Ed recalled tales of seeing these objects shoot other objects with a beam of light and watching them burn up in the atmosphere. After seeing what I saw that night I could hardly call the man a liar. In fact one of the groups saw an object direct a beam at another object which disappeared into the atmosphere. Here we had before us the whole shebang, different types of craft, suggesting many different entities and the very real possibility some species of ETs were at wars (possibly protecting us?). This needed to be documented and my friends and I decided we would somehow try. We all left the conference believing the best ways to investigation the UFO phenomenon actively was with night vision and we were going to prove this by videoing what we saw. What happened next is a lesson in life itself. Next week I will describe the journey we had buying a scope and the kind scientist who built a one of a kind adapter for us.
