Adam Saw A UFO

Adam's UFO Story

Adam's UFO Story

I responded by writing in a comment I left on his Youtube Post that since I didn't know him that I don't really know what to believe. However, I did say that I believed that such an strange "encounter" was possible. That doesn't say a whole lot, because many highly improbable events are still possible.

I've known people who have had similar UFO "experiences", and I have a few stories of my own "experiences" to share. I'd believed the stories that I was told by those I had known personally because I felt they had no reason to lie to me. In fact with the ridicule that seemingly awaits those who tell such stories they had every reason not to share their stories, but courageously shared their stories anyway.

I also believe that the "encounters" which I myself recall having experienced actually took place, and therefore I should assume that other individuals could be experiencing similar events - whatever their underlying cause.

Therefore, in my opinion Adam's story sounds possible, and he tells his story in a believable manner. On the other hand he may just be an acting student having a bit of fun. Or perhaps he and his friends were high on adrenaline, have little in the way of scientific skepticism, and mistook Venus for a UFO.

Then again perhaps he did see something very strange indeed. Perhaps he saw some type of event based upon technology? If so, it would be a very interesting story indeed.

Assuming Adam's story is based upon technology, and not a natural phenomena, let's look at the technology, and possible motivations behind his "encounter".


Very light weight aircraft. A remote controlled carbon composite airframe filled with helium (i.e., a hard shelled blimp would do the trick.

The ring of strobe lights wrapped around the airframe suggest that the RPV is meant to be seen. Therefore we'll classify this as a psy-op - a psychological operation of some type.

A loudspeaker to play the high pitched shrieks.

A very powerful Alpha, Delta, and Theta wave transmitter to induce a brain wave response (sleep) in those unknowing test subjects on the ground. Note that the Alpha, Delta, and Theta wave transmitter need not actually operate from within the RPV itself, but could be located nearby in a ground vehicle.


Motivation I (if terrestrial): Train special ops teams to locate, approach, and subdue individuals at night through the use of advanced technology (night vision, RPVs, and sleep induction).

Motivation II (if terrestrial): Increase belief in extra terrestrial encounters which continues to act as a method of disinf0rmation for development of advanced weapons, and training.

Motivation III (if extra terrestrial): Soft Contact Operation, intended to prepare culture for an eventual First Contact.

Motivation IV (if terrestrial): Create a "UFO" encounter only so that it can be debunked as a means of misleading the public into believing that UFOs encounters are not extra terrestrial.

Who Would Possess The Means and Motivation?

The U.S. Military using state of the art technology and tactics.
Extra Terrestrial Technology or Life Forms

Inducing Sleep

The Following Description of the effects of Alpha, Theta and Delta Waves from PsyWeb

Alpha (8-12 Hz)

Subjective feeling states: relaxed, not agitated, but not drowsy; tranquil, conscious.
Associated tasks & behaviors: meditation, no action.
Effects of Training: can produce relaxation.

Theta (4-8 Hz)

Associated tasks & behaviors: creative, intuitive but may also be distracted, unfocused.
Effects of Training: if enhanced, can induce drifting, trance-like state. If suppressed, can improve concentration, ability to focus attention

Delta (0.1-3 Hz)

Subjective feeling states: deep, dreamless sleep, non-REM sleep, trance, unconscious.
Associated tasks & behaviors: lethargic, not moving, not attentive.
Effects of training: can induce drowsiness, trance, deeply relaxed states

I have some interest in these kinds of stories. The timing of the screech he heard could have been completely coincidental. It could have been one wild animal killing another. Also, someone might make the argument that the presence of a certain animal nearby might cause the crickets and such to become silent. I don't know.

I'm sure I mentioned it to you before, but in case I didn't, here's my UFO story:

I make no judgment as to what Adam saw or thought he saw, because, 28 years later, I still don't know what I saw.

I'm Adam Peck, the poster of the video on youtube. (My Mom's family's last name is Larson) I assure you, my story is completely true, and my motivations were simply to get my story out into the world, in hopes that other people with similar experiences don't feel alone; if everyone shares their strangest stories, we'd all see just how much weird stuff happens out there.

I appreciate your scientific approach to analyzing my situation. It could have been a government test, as you suggest, but I wonder if that's too much effort for potentially no outcome, considering they wouldn't have expected anyone to be awake. Also, I don't think there are any military aircraft bases in that general area (but of course, if it existed it would be secret, thus I wouldn't know if it). I think it would be more logical to guess at military testing/disinformation if this happened in Nevada.

Also, while I agree that the source of the screams could have been animals (as posted in a comment), it just seemed so related to the general direction of the ship, and the short time after the flash of red light.

Thank you for taking my case seriously. The worst feeling is telling a story to people who don't want to believe.
