In the summer of 2016, our goal became to skywatch throughout the ‘hot spots’ of the world, and the United Kingdom was host to three. In addition to skywatching, a secondary focus was to interview and learn more through others who had experienced the ‘other worldly’. We landed in Glasgow, Scotland and met with John Gilles. just outside of Edinburgh. John is an active in-field researcher whose numerous infrared night vision sightings have been chronicled in the British Earth and Aerial Mysteries Society. Of importance, John, among his many recollections, went into great detail about a visitation he received from an alien, with grey wrinkled skin and glowing blue eyes, who possessed strong telepathic powers. He was one of the first we met and talked with, that detailed an encounter such as this.
Coming into Liverpool, we met and skywatched with Franny Hudson. Franny is an active participant in the Advanced Anomalies Study Group, a Facebook chat forum, and he was instrumental in connecting us with many CE5 practitioners in the California area. It was during this skywatch, that Rob began experimenting with his newly acquired military-grade thermal scope. Within minutes of implementing our newly honed connection techniques, Rob saw an object emitting a heat signature, high in the sky, that was not visible optically. However, with this being a new piece of gear, the ability to record the object was not immediately possible. Lesson learned and now we were off to Wales!
During the 1970s, Broad Haven, a small village in Wales, made its name known by becoming a prime spot for UFO sightings. It dubbed the name ‘Broad Haven or Welsh Triangle’ after the Bermuda Triangle, following a flap of UFO sightings. Following several days of rain, and knowing that a visit to Stonehenge would also be soaked out, we decided to drive right into Wales. Like a miracle, the sun brilliantly greeted us as we drove down the main strip of Ynyslas, and it was decided to forgo supper and go right to a skywatch. Within 15 minutes, Rob detected a heat-emitting object. On this occasion, he also had connected a SD-card reader to the thermal scope and recorded his first thermal-image in the skies over the Irish Sea. Success!
