UFOs Land On
of UFOs Landing on Capitol Hill
July 16, 2002 a blue, sphere-shaped UFO lands briefly on the Capitol

approximately 30 seconds apart. The

As I write this article in June of 2005, the official American
policy of plausible deniability, distraction and public dissuasion
regarding UFOs is now more than 50 years old.
This policy is
currently supported by nearly all politicians, Pentagon officials
and members of the media regardless of their political or religious
affiliation. The policy began to emerge in 1942, due to increasing
numbers of UFO military encounters during World War II.
current policy didn't achieve its mandate until the year 1952 as
dramatically growing numbers of UFO sightings worldwide were viewed
by a range of responsible American leaders as the beginning of a
possible alien invasion.
In 1952, during the month of July, many of the of the world's
newspapers reported that dozens of strange, spherical, glowing,
unidentified aircraft were sighted by hundreds of eyewitnesses above
the nation's Capitol.
These objects had registered on radar as they
flew over Washington, D.C., and F-94 jets were scrambled to
intercept, but they were easily out maneuvered by the UFOs. The UFOs
reportedly were loitering in the area for many hours through the
night on at least two occasions and were able to mysteriously appear
and disappear at will.
There were very few photographic images taken of those events, but
they are impressive. And yet, when those strange glowing
unidentified aircraft returned again exactly 50 years later in July
of 2002 only a few media sources reported a brief, failed UFO
intercept that F-16's had experienced. Most Americans had no idea
that this was just the tip of the iceberg.
In fact the events that occurred during 2002 were even more
enigmatic than those of 1952 because of the incredibly clear, high
resolution nighttime photographs that were taken.
captured on high speed film by a professional photographer show
conclusively that during the month of July 2002, on the 4th and the
16th, there were a number of UFOs flying over the restricted air
space of the Capitol Building and the Washington Monument.
incredible as it sounds, they provide evidence that on July 16, UFOs
encircled and landed on the Capitol Building roof and the
surrounding park area late that night!
Here's what happened. On July 16, at approximately 12:30 a.m., a
professional Washington, D.C. Photographer was shooting an album
cover for a Recording Artist using the reflecting pool and Capitol
Building as a background. Based on the two images that were taken
and the testimony of the D.C. Photographer, there were no other
people seen on the Capitol Building grounds at that time.
what is clear from these two images is that there were at least five
UFOs that penetrated restricted air space in that location.
two of these vehicles actually landed for a brief period. As that
was occurring, one of the other UFOs entered the reflection pool and
submerged while yet another UFO hovered nearby over the water
emitting an eerie looking energy field that reflected light beneath
it. All of the Photographer's images were captured with a Nikon F-5
camera equipped with a very expensive, distortion free, AF-ED 600 mm
F 2.8 lens mounted on a tripod.
The exposure time was one-fifteenth
of a second on high speed film - ISO 1600. The ISO meter on the
camera was set at 1200 to slightly overexpose the film and increase
the overall density of the image.
After taking the two pictures in front of the Capitol Building, the
D.C. Photographer then moved to a different location on the edge of
the Capitol Building's Lower Senate Park. He estimates that 20
minutes elapsed before taking the next and final shot of the
evening. That image's exposure time was 3 ½ minutes. Hovering in the
sky, just above a commercial building, there are a number of UFOs - some are grouped in a triangular formation.
Near the ground there
are two UFOs in the distance.
However, floating in the air in front
of the D.C. Photographer, there are two oval shaped,
semi-transparent spheres of energy that he believes were UFOs
equipped with some type of advanced optical stealth device. The
amount of alien activity that took place that night was
The large formation of UFOs parked above the building emitted a
strange energy. The highly complex signature of their energy fields
was clearly captured on the film due to the long exposure time and
their close proximity to the camera. Just prior to leaving the area,
the UFOs generated a "wormhole" in space. Unfortunately, this
incredible image came at a price. The D.C. Photographer's fingers
were burned by radiation and took about a year to heal.
During one of our conversations he explained that,
"I was positioned
underneath these objects. And according to my images they warped out
or whatever they did, and went back to wherever they came from in
the time of that exposure.
At that point there is an image that
shows a center set of UFO formations in lateral and upward motions.
I felt that I was caught in the thrust of something… like I was hit
by a mist, but there wasn't any moisture.
Soon after that I noticed I had very
fine, pinhole-sized burns in my fingernails… and my arms felt
like they were charged with some kind of energy."
Just ten days later, on July 26, 2002,
FOX News correspondent,
Shepard Smith, reported that,
"The nighttime skies over the nation's
capitol came alive with blue and orange lights streaking across the
sky, so say a lot of panicked people who called in to a radio
station, no joke here.
American fighter jets in hot pursuit ... NORAD confirmed to FOX News that two F-16s did scramble, but found
nothing! A mystery in the sky above Andrews Air Force Base ...
that's the one the president uses."
Fox D.C. correspondent, Brian Wilson, continued the story,
fair to say, Shepard that there are a lot more questions than
answers at this point, but something strange was going on in the
Maryland night sky.
Here is what we know; at 1:00 a.m. the folks at NORAD saw something they couldn't identify in Maryland airspace, not
far from the nation's capitol [restricted airspace]. The track it
was taking caused them some concern so they scrambled two D.C. Air
National Guard jets to check things out.
Now, D.C. Air National
Guard confirms that two F-16s from the 113th Wing were vectored to
intercept whatever it was that NORAD was worried about.
"However, when the pilots got where they were supposed to be, they
said they didn't see anything when they arrived on the scene.
would not provide details about the exact location, direction or
speed of the object they were tracking. Independently, a number of
folks who live in Waldorf, Maryland, which is not far from Andrews
Air Force Base and not far from the nation's capitol, called local
radio station WTOP to say that about the same time, they witnessed a
fast moving, bright blue light in the sky.
They claimed that the light was
being chased by military jets. One witness told the radio
station that the jets were right on its tail, ‘As the thing
would move, a jet was right behind it.'
"An investigation is underway. But National Guard spokesman, Captain Sheldon Smith said, ‘We don't have any information about funny
lights.' By the way, this just happens to be the 50th anniversary of
a series of still-unexplained sightings over the nation's capitol, a
story that made banner-headline news in 1952.
Shepard, we'll continue to watch for
Meanwhile, that same night, a father and son in Arlington, Virginia,
had gone outside to get their cat off a ledge outside a second floor
window around 1:15 a.m.
They were both looking up at the side of the house wondering how to
get their cat down, when two circular white lights flew over their
house. They estimated the UFOs were about the size of a baseball
held at arm's length. The UFOs were visible for about two minutes
before moving off, but soon came back again.
This time both UFOs
stopped close by, and that's when the father and son realized the
spheres were small. Both UFOs stopped for a second, and then one of
the objects flew away at a right angle to its previous path of
The other object remained motionless for about five seconds
before continuing on pretty much its original direction. These were
two separate objects flying in tandem at first, and then separately.
They were clearly under intelligent control.
Four months later, on November 11, 2002, the D.C. Photographer
captured another amazing nighttime photograph of a small UFO. This
object was a metallic sphere about the size of a golf ball that
silently defied gravity. It literally floated over the head of a
beautiful blonde model before swiftly moving off.
One year later, in November of 2003, FOX News reported that Air
Force fighter jets were once again scrambled and that the White
House was briefly evacuated on the 20th after "birds"
or possibly "disturbances in the atmosphere" tripped radar that keeps watch on
restricted airspace around the complex.
According to FOX News,
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman, William Shumann, said,
"It's a false radar target. When the NORAD
fighters got to the location of the alleged violation, they

U.S. and Canadian airspace.
Shumann explained how,

five miles of restricted airspace around the White House. It's one
of those electronic gremlins that pop-up, but there was no
So, should we just forget what happened in
1952 and again in 2002
Those events are behind us now and no one was seriously
But, what if I told you that "a swarm" of UFOs
passed over our nation's Capitol as recently as Monday, May 2, 2005,
at 8:45 p.m. eastern-time?
According to an eyewitness, a fleet of UFOs once again passed through restricted airspace undeterred.
Below is the amazing account that was sent to me by a friend of the
D.C. Photographer. I spoke with him on the phone 24-hours after the
event and he was still in shock by what he had observed.

very credible. He is working on his Ph.D. in anthropology at a
"I was in my bathroom of my apartment on U Street, NW D.C.
looking out the window when I saw a helicopter with its searchlight
on as it cruised at about 400 feet elevation moving west to east
over the S street, NW area.
This is a normal thing to see in my
hood. I just paid attention because it had the searchlight on, which
is generally only used when they are looking for bad guys on the
"However, the searchlight of the helicopter went directly over what
appeared to be a very large swarm of bees.
I thought this was very
strange, not only to see such a swarm at that altitude, but also
that these objects must have been a lot larger than bees to see them
that distinctly from about 1/8 mile away and approximately 400 feet
"The helicopter continued on its way as if it did not see anything.
Nor did it fix its light onto the strange swarm. So I began looking
more closely at this swarm which was cloud-like, but seemed to have
the distinct shape of a very large triangle. It was the size of a
football field and was much larger than any aircraft. The wind was
blowing west to east at about 10 mph (the yahoo.com weather page
said it was NW 10 mph that night). Either way, the wind was not
blowing westerly - which makes my next point even stranger. The
clouds in the sky were either standing still or moving toward the
"This group of objects started to cruise south towards the National
Mall. At this point I yelled for my wife to come to the bathroom.
‘Get in here now!
You have to see this weird thing in the sky!' I
pointed it out to her and she watched with me as we tracked it
moving east to west over The Mall, over the Washington Monument,
toward the Lincoln Memorial, and off toward the Pentagon area.
mind you, this is exactly the route the airplanes use to enter D.C.
airspace to land at Washington National Airport.
"One problem though, the planes must approach from west to east
- the exact opposite of what this thing was doing. And this thing was
about 15 times or more the size of a 747… easily!
It also emitted
what appeared to be a faint light - which could have been city light
reflecting off of it, but it did seem to be generating this very
faint light almost like it was shimmering or some weird phasing of
light, like when you are seeing a heat mirage off of hot asphalt.
Then, it simply faded off into the distance and out of our view.
"Again, it was huge, appeared to have a triangular shape (though the
mirage-like shimmering somewhat distorted this), had a possible
illumination effect, and was moving against the wind at a good
It must've been moving pretty fast
since it covered ground from Logan Circle area to the Capitol
Building area, across The Mall toward the Lincoln Memorial and
then off to the Pentagon area all within a matter of minutes.
Yes, the F-16s can do that even
quicker I know, but this was not moving at 10 mph as the wind
would suggest if it were a cloud, nor was it moving in the same
direction of the other clouds!
OK, so you tell me what the hell
Historically, the official answers to this question have been:
A. Temperature Inversion
B. Weather Balloons
C. Ball Lightning
D. Swamp Gas
Now compare the May 2 event to what
occurred just nine days later.
The FAA revoked the pilot's license
of a Pennsylvania man who flew his two-seater Cessna into
Washington, D.C.'s restricted airspace on May 11, 2005, causing a
highly emotional evacuation of the White House and Capitol Building
mid-afternoon. Just how serious was this event? NORAD sent two F-16s
and a Black Hawk helicopter to intercept one Cessna.
The FAA said the flight instructor had his license revoked and must
wait at least a year to apply for a new one and start over with
flight school lessons. Because the instructor was the only licensed
pilot in the aircraft, he was responsible for the restricted
According to FAA spokesman, Greg Martin,
"It's an extraordinary action that
reflects how seriously we view violations within restricted
The big question regarding this ongoing
alien incursion of restricted airspace is at what point does a UFO,
or swarm of UFOs, represent a threat to national security? Cleary a
two-seater Cessna aircraft is considered a threat to national
security; why not a UFO? Perhaps it is because UFOs have not taken
any overt hostile action toward us … yet?
But by the mid 1950s,
after studying the matter for years, the U.S. government concluded
that the public's potential to panic due to waves of UFO sightings
was the only clear and present danger to national security. And thus
the official denial, distraction and dissuasion regarding this
Do our current leaders in Washington, D.C. know about this issue?
Clearly, part of their job is to know what's going on and most are
briefed daily from a variety of sources.
One such source is the D.C.
Photographer who has lived and worked in Washington, D.C. for many
years. He is an intelligent, patriotic American who felt it was his
duty to report what had happened to the proper authorities. That's
why he went to the Capitol Building a few days after the evening of
July 16 and met with members of the detective division of the
He patiently showed them the UFO images he had taken
on July 4 and 16 and explained the night's events.
After some careful consideration, he was
told that "no crime took place" therefore the detectives would not
make a report. Undeterred he next sent a copy of his photographs and
a detailed report to the Office of the President, but there was no
reply. He then contacted officials at the Pentagon.
there has been no official response as yet.
He then submitted his
work to National Geographic and eventually met with an assistant art
director who was very excited about the pictures. The D.C.
Photographer did not hear back from him for a month and when he
called National Geographic to inquire about his pictures he learned
that the assistant art director had been fired.
When I spoke by telephone with the public relations officer for the
Capitol Police about the events that transpired the night of July
16, 2002, I was told,
"We can neither confirm nor deny if
a report exists on this event."
When asked if the Capitol Police are on duty
all night he replied,
"Security personnel are stationed
around the area at all times and security cameras are on all the
time for surveillance of the Capitol Building and surrounding
Finally, I wanted to know if any representatives worked in
Capitol late at night after the building is closed to the public.
The officer explained that,
"Members do conduct business at
night and will work as late as required."
During the course of my investigation of
this incredible case I have discovered an immense amount of material
regarding UFOs and Washington, D.C.
As a result, a book entitled
Capitol Offense: Alien Incursions of Restricted Airspace, written by
myself and the D.C. Photographer, will be published later this year.
