Iran has reported shooting down an unidentified flying object successfully. This event coming to light now even as diplomats from Iran and The United States will begin another stage of talks this week at the U.N. General Assembly. Will the talks on Tehran’s nuclear program and international diplomacy be affected? This largely depends on the source of the mysterious glowing craft which the Iranian Royal Guard Coastal Air Defense destroyed. Suspecting the quickly moving, glowing trio of being spy planes, the Royal Guard fired upon them, getting a direct hit on one. “Glowing objects were sighted over the Persian Gulf. IRGC air defense targeted one of the objects successfully, forcing it to plummet and sink in the seas off Boushehr (Province)…” Brigadier Ali Razmjou reported. He went on to add in a Monday update posted on IRNA, “”The three bright objects were detected by our radars when flying over the Persian Gulf Islands of Khark and Khargou,” It is also reported, that the debris from this craft fell into the sea, and could have been carried anywhere by currents. According to the report, these objects did have an incredible ability to evade tracking and when fired upon danced out of the way. Of the three objects, two evaded attacks and sped out of sight and radar range.
This isn’t the first time, however, that Iran has made UFO headlines. In fact, one of the best documented sightings of all time occurred in 1976 when there was a radar as well as visual sighting of a UFO over Tehran. Two F-4 jet interceptors were dispatched to investigate and possibly shoot down the unknown radar blip, when suddenly a burst of electromagnetic interference incapacitated two of the F-4’s independently, causing them to lose instrumentation and communications. These systems were restored once the F-4’s managed to pilot away from the mysterious hovering objects. One F-4, as it was preparing to fire on the object, lost its weapons systems. The incident was covered and documented in full detail in a DIA report circulated around the White House, Secretary of State, Joint Chiefs of Staff, National Security Agency, and the Central Intelligence Agency. Several high ranking Iranians in both the military and political machine stated on public record that they firmly believed the incident was due to interference by extraterrestrial craft. Then, on January 10th, 2007, Iran once again entered the paranormal community’s spotlight when the Fars News Agency reported that, according to eyewitnesses, a ‘radiant’ UFO had gone down in the Barez Mountains of Kerman.
What interest could these strange objects have in Iran? In the past, extraterrestrials have reportedly shown a great deal of concern about nuclear weapons, decidedly taking a stance towards global peace (according to some sources). Then again, it could have been a spy-plane from any number of countries. Although the report from the 1970’s does raise a few eyebrows. If the technology of the 1970’s was so great that it clearly demonstrated the ability to interrupt instruments and even weapons of pursuing craft, how advanced would it be now?
