National Geographic: A UFO sighting near Kangaroo Island

The well-respected National Geographic website has published an article about an unusual sighting on radar over Kangaroo Island back in 1969.

The article is about an apprentice radio technician named Alan Potter, who in August 1969 was servicing a radar at Adelaide Airport when he spotted something peculiar on the radar head.

The article reads: “Potter was tracking a Fokker Friendship flying from Adelaide to Kingscote on Kangaroo Island, but as the radar turned slowly, it pinged a large object approaching from Port Lincoln, it was like nothing he’d seen in the area before.

“The Fokker flight was flying towards Kangaroo Island, when a small object, looked to leave the large object and fly in a line towards the Fokker plane.

“The two signals met over Rapid Bay before the smaller signal returned to the larger one.  Potter laughed at the idea the two signals could have been a UFO checking out the Fokker, but after further thought, there was nothing else it could be.

“Though Potter’s sighting was logged by the Australian UFO Research Network in 2004, no passengers or pilots on the Fokker reported anything out of the order.”

Alien Face Spotted on Mars?

Chryse “Alien Head”

Conspiracy theorists convinced that Mars was once home to an advanced ET civilization believe that they’ve discovered new evidence for their theory in the form of an alien face on the surface of the Red Planet.

The oddity comes in the form of an image taken by the Mars Global Surveyor back in January of 2005 which, for some strange reason, apparently escaped the attention of anomaly hunters until this week.

Featured in the photo is a curious-looking crater that bears a somewhat striking resemblance to the iconic visage of an alien as we’ve come to know them in popular culture here on Earth.

Advocates for the possibility of a lost Martian civilization say that the ‘eyes’ of the ET are too similar to be simply the result of a natural process and suggest that they face was crafted at some point in the distant past.

While some may find such an assertion laughable, it appears, to the conspiracy theorists’ credit, that such a notion was not lost on NASA itself when it processed the image.

That’s because the space agency actually dubbed the crater the ‘Chryse Alien’ since it “seems to resemble a bug-eyed head.”

Of course, NASA’s description of the crater posits that the ‘eyes’ were formed by wind and erosion rather than an ancient Martian civilization with a penchant for building massive monuments in their own image.
