UFOs Don't Care If The Cops Chase Them

UFOs sightings happen fairly frequently (at least according to UFO sighting witnesses), but in the 1960s and '70s, alien crafts were spotted almost every week throughout America and the rest of the Western world. The rise of inexpensive photography equipment helped witnesses make a better case for their sightings, and often these photos were able to provide evidence that an eyewitness testimony just can’t offer. But in many cases of UFO encounters witnesses are either too awestruck to take action, or technology just doesn’t work. These are just a few of the most exciting stories of UFO sightings from the 20th century.

If you're in a vehicle on the ground and you see a UFO cruising across the sky, it's unlikely that you will actually catch it unless it lands or crashes. That fact didn’t stop two Portage County (Ohio) police officers from giving chase to a UFO on the morning of April 17, 1966. When the officers saw a metallic, disc shaped object in the sky, they engaged in hot pursuit the craft, only to find themselves in Pennsylvania about 30 minutes later. Even thought the craft left them in the dust, their story was backed up by a series of other officers and civilians who also gave chase.

Who Are The Plejarens, And What Do They Want From Billy Meier?

Billy Meier is a strange figure in the world of UFOlogy. Throughout his life Meier claims to have spotted a series of unidentified crafts, while also coming into contact with the entities who pilot the ships.

In the '60s and '70s, Meier presented a series of photos, metal samples, and sound recordings to back up his claims that he was in regular contact with an alien race known as the Plejarens. Meier’s photos very clearly show large metal discs and otherworldly craft floating about the Swiss countryside -- truly remarkable images, but are they authentic?
