Saru

Recommended Posts

Big thank you to Evangium who has secured an interview with veteran UFO researcher Ron Regehr.

Ron Regehr has been a UFO researcher for more than 40 years, and he is a retired aerospace engineer with 30 years experience at Douglas Aircraft and Aerojet ElectroSystems working in space and space surveillance systems. He is MUFON co-state director-Utah, and a MUFON research specialist in space satellite technology. Two of his major areas of contribution in UFO research are satellite detection of UFOs and analysis of photos and other data associated with the Roswell case. Full Bio.

Prior to the interview taking place we're giving you the opportunity to put forward questions you would like to ask Ron - the best questions will be picked out and presented to him in the interview.

Questions should be as clear and concise as possible, you can also ask more than one if you wish.

This thread will be left open for a few weeks, once the interview takes place you will be able to view it on the main site along with the questions that were used and the members who contributed them.

I have a question for Ron.

We have all heard of the 1984 DSP detection...

But, it has been said that the object made a "U-turn" around the satellite, and left back into deep space the same way it came in. Is that your interpretation aswell?

Kudos Evangium!

Questions for Ron regarding the DSP UFO event, which took place in May 5, 1984:

1) when other surveillance assets (and specifically which ones) started to track an object?

2) what were the orbital parameters (state vectors) of the object at:

  1. initial point of event;
  2. the moment, when object enters satellite's FOV;
  3. the moment, when object leaves satellite's FOV;
  4. the moment, when surveillance assets were lost the tracking of the object.

3) what data (from DSP-7 or from other assets) was used to determine object's shape?

Hi Ron - just wondered if you had any idea as to the nature of the object involved in the Tehran incident of 1976 -its been said that the UFO was also tracked on DSP satellite.

Heres the DIA Report:

THE TEHRAN 1976 CASE:

A declassified document related to the famous Teheran UFO and jet fighter encounter in 1976.

This is a capital case, acknowleged by a US intelligence agency, where a UFO encountered an aircraft, and reacted in a superior ant intelligent manner to the aircraft's interception attempt by shutting down temporarily the aircraft's weapons system.

The DIA evaluation termed this "An outstanding report. This case is a classic which meets all the criteria necessary for a valid study of the UFO phenomenon." The analysis called the UFO performance "awesome," noting that the objects displayed "an inordinate amount of maneuverability."

Thanks! thumbsup.gif It was noted that a DSP also tracked the UFO. Ron Regehr is aware of that incident as well.

Questionsfor Ron:

Regarding the 1984 incident, was the velocity of that UFO too slow for it to escape back into deep space?

Please elaborate on the use of the terms 'fast walkers' and 'slow walkers' -- either as UFOs, or as manmade phenomena (as other NORAD veterans assert).

I seen a black triangle about 6 years ago in plain daytime hovering silently, What would you have to say that could explain the triangle sightings world wide and frequently??

Questionsfor Ron:

Regarding the 1984 incident, was the velocity of that UFO too slow for it to escape back into deep space?

Perhaps a better question to ask (i.e. not a leading question like the one quoted above) would be this:

What methods were used to determine the velocity of the object?

Also, as the object was only observed by DSP-7 for 9 minutes, how was it determined that it actually "escaped Earth orbit" and went back to "deep space"? In other words, what other surveillance assets - if any - were involved in the tracking of this object?

While we're on the topic, could you please detail which sensors actually detected this object? The IR and RADEC sensors do not provide conventional imagery (in other words, they don't provide photos). It has been said that the object was first observed by the Star Tracker onbaord DSP-7. If that is the case, was there actual imagery acquired by the Star Tracker which allows you to make the claim that the object was "clam-shaped"? Does or did the Star Tracking system onboard DSP-7 regularly transmit its imagery to the ground station?

The "fast walker" detected by DSP 7 on 5th May 1984 has been identified as an NRO signals intelligence satellite that was left in a transfer orbit by a launch vehicle failure the previous January. The reason that it got more attention than the normal fast walker is that it came within 3 km of the DSP.

For background, the DSPs carry a large infra-red telescope and their primary mission is detection of missile launches. When the system became operational, it was soon found that non-missile targets were also being detected, and these were classified as "slow walkers", which are aircraft, and "fast walkers", which are satellites. They are known as walkers, from the way they "walk" across the operators' screens.

As always there seems to be a logical explanation for everything "alien", it just takes time to dig it out. But you just watch, some of the "believers" have a pretty hard time letting this one back into the lake.

Back pedalling Hazzard??

This is a thread for asking Ron Regehr questions. If you wish to debate my take on the DSP detection you can do so in the Best Evidence thread.

Agreed, let's please keep this thread for questions posed to Mr. Regehr.

Since I fear that he may throw something at someone if the DSP Satellite is mentioned many more times, how about a different questino: What, if any, views does he have of the "secret aircraft" hypothesis that's often put forward as an explanation for UFO Sightings? does it seem very likely that we might either have the technology to be able to replicate some of the actions that UFOs are often reported as doing, and does it seem very likely to him that the US (or anyone else)'s Air Force would perform such manouvres with ultra-secret aircraft?

Thats an interesting question - I'd follow that one up by asking Ron what his opinions are on the comments made by Nick Pope from the British Ministry of Defense.

"We were asking the Americans, 'Are you operating a prototype aircraft in our airspace?' That, of course, was nonsense. You simply would not do that from a diplomatic and political point of view. It would undermine the entire structure of NATO if you were putting things through someone else's airspace, particularly a close ally, without seeking the proper diplomatic clearance. But we had to ask. And the Americans, having had similar reports, I guess, since the Hudson Valley wave [New York state, mid-1980s], had been quietly asking us if we had some large, triangular shaped object that could go from 0 to Mach 5 in a second. Our response was that we wished we did. This was the bizarre situation: that we were chasing the Americans, and the Americans were chasing us."

Nick Pope - Head of the "UFO desk" at Air Secretariat 2-A, British Ministry of Defence.

Cheers.

In my opinion spacejunk, meteorites and known man-made objects are not UFOs.

My question for Ron:

1) How fast does the UFOs goes when they enter from deep space, and out to deep space again?

2) How fast does the UFOs goes when they move near Earth's surface after/before they come/go in/out from/to deep space?

3) What altitudes does the UFOs operate after/before they come/go in/out from/to deep space?

4) How does the UFOs maneuver?

5) Does the UFOs make any sound?

6) How does the UFOs looks like, size, shape, other details?

Have you ever seen where UFO's might not be space ships, but rather life forms themselves?

Have you ever seen some UFOs might be space ships? Take a look at for example the former Cosmonaut Viktor Afanasyev who witnessed a 40 meter UFO out in space:

http://www.ufoevidence.org/cases/case392.htm Also look at the drawing

In April of 1979, Cosmonaut Victor Afanasyev lifted off from Star City to dock with the Soviet Solyut 6 space station. But while en route, something strange happened. Cosmonaut Afanasyev saw an unidentified object turn toward his craft and begin tailing it through space.

"It followed us during half of our orbit. We observed it on the light side, and when we entered the shadow side, it disappeared completely. It was an engineering structure, made from some type of metal, approximately 40 meters long with inner hulls. The object was narrow here and wider here, and inside there were openings. Some places had projections like small wings. The object stayed very close to us. We photographed it, and our photos showed it to be 23 to 28 meters away."

In addition to photographing the UFO, Afanasyev continually reported back to Mission Control about the craft's size, its shape and position. When the cosmonaut returned to earth he was debriefed and told never to reveal what he knew, and had his cameras and film confiscated!

Those photos and his voice transmissions from space have never been released.

It is only now, with the collapse of the Soviet Union that Afanasyev feels that he can safely tell his story.

"It is still classified as a UFO because we have yet to identify the object."

Also see the interview with Viktor Afanasyev

Hey dude according to this link Viktor Afanasyev wasn't on board Solyut 6 at the time:

The passenger manifest could have been conveniently edited though. :)

You can't trust these data 'karl 12' :) Some datas/informations on the Internet are false. Recently i have been talking with Ian Brockwell from www.ufoevidence.org and he confirm that the data about his spaceflight on Wikipedia can not be trusted. He also confirm that Viktor Afanasyev is quite respected, and that he is tempted to give support to Afanasyev's 40 meter long UFO sighting.

You can't always trust the datas on Wikipedia, and i have a good example: Some students from a College failed in their task because they used some references from Wikipedia (that shows to be false), but they did not check out their College-school books, so these students did a mistake there, yes, these students failed in their task because they only relied their faith on datas from Wikipedia only, but forgot to check out their books ;)

Ra -I hear what you're saying but its not on this NASA page either.

If you've started a thread on the sighting could you post the address and we'll discuss it there - it does sound like a very interesting incident but if we can't even prove the chap was even on the spacecraft then it doesn't do the case's credibility much good.

Cheers

It was TALM who started to say >>UFO's might not be space ships<<, and then i just have to correct him on that by saying >>Some UFOs might be space ships<<, and oh yes, Afanasyev did in fact comment the 40 meter long UFO sighting on the TV-docummentary interview.

But you're right, we are not discussing Cosmonaut's / Astronaut's UFO sightings here.

http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=83829

MAY 5, 1984, an alert was triggered at the North America Air Defense Command. Moving at 22,000 miles per hour, it was heading toward Earth and had been determined to NOT be incoming ballistic missles, or any other type of conventionally explainable object. Once tracked, it was code-named "Fast Walker".

This object was first spotted by the ultra-sensitive orbiting USDSP satellites our county uses for detailed surveillance and air defense. These satellites have the infra-red capability to spot small heat sources on the surface of the earth and are time-proven as effective monitoring devices.

At 1400 hours zulu time, an object was spotted by a USDSP satellite and tracked as it sped first directly toward the Earth and passed if front and within 15 miles of the USDSP satellite. It suddenly and without impact or contact with other devices or obstructions curved outward, away from the Earth. It was tracked for another 9 minutes until it then disappeared.

What the data resolved was that it was a hot, fast, solid object that swept in from outer space. This information would probably have been totally kept from public view, but it was leaked.

The statement was "Where it appeared in the (satellite's) sensor field would indicate that the object came into the sensor field from outer-space, went in front of the sensor, and left, departing back into deep space. It would indicate that it was some type of craft that had the ability to maneuver! (in space!!!) And there you have hard evidence. You have telemetry from that satellite, you have information, you have systems, you have data that you can go back and investigate and check and verify. In the past, usually UFO events are of just eye-witness testimony... There you have a very sensitive defense system that sent you information to the ground. I don't even know if you can solve it... maybe it's one of those enigmas that's just gonna be with us forever. What type of craft would have that ability? Some people might say, 'A UFO'."

Ron,theres some interesting talk about space satellites (and UFOs) in this interview with John Maynard from the Pentagon's DIA - he also mentions a project called OMNI, ever heard of that one before?
