UFOs 'On The Record': Original Drawings From Eyewitness Accounts (PHOTOS)

First Posted: 09/14/10 08:00 AM ET   Updated: 08/18/11 02:22 PM ET

Last month, journalist Leslie Kean revealed shocking testimonials from government officials about unexplained behavior by unknown objects in the sky over many decades.

Kean's book, the New York Times bestseller "UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On the Record" includes a foreword by John Podesta and first-person accounts written by over a dozen military and aviation witnesses and official investigators from around the world.

A Huffington Post slide show from last month provides useful background for this batch of new information, which focuses on original witness drawings, and the importance they play in UFO investigations, particularly when similar features are depicted in different locations and at different times.

What do you think about the credibility of the accounts? And what, if anything, have you seen?

In the chapter he wrote for “UFOs,” Airline Captain Júlio Miguel Guerra relives his lengthy encounter with a highly active UFO while serving as a flight instructor for the Portuguese Air Force in 1982. He writes: “At various times the object had been very close to me and I was able to verify that it was round with two halves shaped like two tight-fitting skullcaps. I carefully looked at the lower one, which seemed to be somewhere between red and brown with a hole or dark spot in the center. The center band looked like it had some kind of a grid, and possibly a few lights, but it was hard to tell since the sun was so bright and was reflected.” The object circled his small airplane for 15 minutes while he was alone in the sky, in his DHC-1 Chipmunk. He made this drawing the day after the encounter and submitted it with his report to the Portuguese Air Force. (Júlio Guerra, CNIFO Case Report)
