The UFO Connection

Note: This section was written back around 1988, and I am now just starting to update it.. work in progress.

Robert Suffern, a carpenter from Bracebridge, Ontario, had a close encounter with a UFO when he was 27. On October 7th, 1975, Robert received a call from his sister stating that she saw a “fiery glow” near his barn, and was afraid that it might be on fire. Upon driving out to check his barn, he witnessed a circular craft resting in the middle of the gravel road, and occupants about. The craft lifted off before he could stop his car. Suffern turned the car around and headed for home, and nearly hit one of the strange figures with his car. This was the third UFO sighting in two years, the previous two only being nocturnal lights. On December 12th, by prearranged appointment, an Ontario Provincial Police cruiser arrived at the Suffern’s door and three military officers stepped out in full dress uniform. The men bearing credentials were high ranking officers of the Canadian Forces, Ottawa, the US Air Force, the Pentagon, and interestingly the Office of Naval Intelligence, Washington, D.C. The men had come to answer ALL of Suffern’s questions regarding the sighting. As a result, Suffern learned that it was an accident that the ship had landed and that the governments have had dealings with extraterrestrials since 1943.[1]

In Moore’s book, he recalls that the naval officer stated to Suffern:

“Oh, we have had contact with the ET’s since 1943. It was due to an accident of an experiment that the Navy was running at that time, on invisibility!”[2]

Robert Suffern’s account of the meeting with the three officers has been described mainly as a planned leak, a hoax, or disinformation.

The Great Ark


“On the second of June, 1946 a brightly flaming object was seen in the sky above the Gulf of Alaska. The Great Ark, it was called.. I was on the Malay in the Atlantic… After it landed {9 miles from the Malay}, it discharged a lot of smaller craft… lifeboats… We pulled up four miles and turned parallel with the Ark, and that’s when it exploded. It was a small nuclear explosion, but there was no harmful fallout” – Carl M. Allen (1991)[3]

“{In May or June of 1947 The SS Maylay} was nearly capsized by a kilotomic explosion… it is the only ship to have survived the explosion of a UFO… I ought to know, I was a crew member, steering the ship at the time.” – Carl M. Allen[4]

Notice here the story is close to the one reported by Moore but we now can look at it as maybe it was the Malay after all. Further, we can assume this is also the same “Cargo Ship S.S. Malay” that reportedly witnessed the experiment.[5]

Carl said the incident happened in May or June of 1947 in some interviews, however, he only Served on the SS Malay from May 8th, 1946 to June 22nd, 1946. This timeframe does fit with some of his statements. While doing research into the ship I did find an “SS MalayTanker ship (named as such form 1933~194) that had records of being Torpedo & Shelled on January 18th of 1942 resulting in 4 deaths.  There was also another SS Malay, a Norwegian cargo ship in service from 1959 to 1961 and now known as SS Ambria, however, this by dates alone could not be the “Malay” that witnessed the experiment in 1943, or the UFO incident in 1946/7. I did find something interesting during my research though; “Yours Truly Johnny Dollar” was one of the longest-running detective series on radio. It aired on CBS Radio for 15 minutes from 1948 to 1962. On February 10, 1950, the episode was entitled “The SS Malay Trader Ship.” This leads one to wonder if this is where the name of the ship came from that Carl Allen gave to Moore.


UFO’s and Alien Contact Since 1943?

Roswell Crash

Here we have various accounts of UFO’s in 1943, with alien contact by the Navy. In contrast, we have the Roswell UFO crash of July 2nd, 1947, where many think that alien involvement with the government began. One book published by Moore & Berlitz, “The Roswell Incident,” conveys the idea that the government had no prior dealings with extraterrestrial entities before the crash. Here we clearly have a conflict. Which will it be: Aliens contact the earth in 1943, or aliens contacted the earth in 1947?

The third series of accounts by Carl Allen reports the ship name as “The SS Maylay;” then in 1991, Carl says this was the “SS Malay” the same name as the cargo ship “SS Malay” that supposedly witnessed the PX in Moore’s book. Also, is Carl part of a group of people who tend to be ‘more susceptible’ to seeing UFO’s?

“People with American Indian or Gypsy blood in their background tend to see more UFO’s then other People… People with unusual last names… tend to have more sightings… There are more left-handed contactees…” – John A. Keel[6]

Doubtful as much as Carl referred to himself as a wondering Gypsy, that was more in his belief then fact.

The Navy Investigates Magnetism and Gravity


Since the forming of the NRL (Naval Research Laboratory) on July 2nd, 1923 the Navy has investigated and supported the scientific study into Magnetism and Gravity.

A research project was supported by the Office of Naval Research (under Contract No. N00014-66-C-0217) to further explore the possible existence of two gravitational forces. The project was conducted by Dr. John Carstoiu (a geophysicist, International Consultant Scientists Corporation, of Brookline, Mass.) A highly technical paper entitled “The Two Gravitational Fields and Gravitational Waves Propagation”[7] summed up Dr. Carstoiu’s efforts. The paper discussed in mathematical theory a second gravitic force, he coined Gravity II. He goes on to state that “This could explain a number of anomalies and oddities that have been recorded…” referring to such things as the Bermuda Triangle, etc.[8]

Bob Lazar

Bob Lazar

This may remind you of Robert Lazar, a theoretical physicist who was allegedly hired at S-4 (10 miles south of Area 51 / Groom Lake of the U.S. government’s Nevada Test Site.) as a senior staff physicist to work on gravitational propulsion systems associated with UFO’s. Mr. Lazar also talks about two gravitic forces ‘Gravity A’ and ‘Gravity B.’  Lazar claims that he was paid by none other than the Navy. He has received a W-2 Form issued by the “Department of Naval Intelligence” (authenticity unverified) for the time he worked at the Nevada test site.

“I have two masters degrees; one’s in physics; one’s in electronics. I wrote my thesis on MHD, which is magnetohydrodynamics… …the group that runs this project, whether it really is the Navy or they just say that, apparently these people have executive power — they don’t report to anyone.” – Robert Lazar

Project Magnet


On December 2nd, 1950, a proposed study of “Geomagnetics” was undertaken in hopes to explain the remarkable maneuvers that observers claimed for unidentified flying objects. The project (Canadian Project Magnet) was headed and initiated by Wilbert Brockhouse Smith of the Broadcast and Measurements Section, Telecommunications Division of the Ministry of Transport. During the project Smith gathered many UFO reports, and also acquired equipment for a flying saucer observatory at Shirleys Bay (The world’s first flying saucer sighting station.) The most intriguing 25 sightings were summarized for the Project Magnet Report. The project ended on August 20th, 1954. The only conclusion Smith made was “the vehicles are probably extra-terrestrial.” [9]

Wilbert Smith died in December 1962, just at the time when he felt he was on the verge of an important discovery in the physics behind UFO propulsion.

The United States Navy also conducted a Project Magnet in which they investigated electromagnetic, gravitational and atmospheric disturbances.[10]  Test flights began in 1951 and full operational capabilities were established in 1953. The project ran through 1994. It is believed that one Navy patrol bomber carrying a magnetic anomaly detector vanished.[11]


The NAVY Is Always Involved When It Comes to UFO’s, Gravity Propulsion, or Force Fields

One theme that keeps recurring all throughout my research: The Navy is always center stage when it comes to gravitational / electromagnetic research, and the UFO Phenomenon. From the Philadelphia Experiment to UFO ‘gravitational drive’ motors, “Project Magnet” and more, everything always points to the Navy. Why was the Navy interested in gravitational propulsion systems, gravitational field generators, etc? Is it because they had prior experience in generating electromagnetic fields in 1943 and possibly attracted attention from otherworldly entities? Sounds far fetched but look at the recent news articals on the right.

“Professor Stan Friedman, a nuclear physicist of Hayward, California, has speculated that the reason that alien intelligences may have been attracted to the Philadelphia Experiment might be because of large concentrations of electromagnetic ‘over-splash’ produced by the experiment itself.” – William Moore[12]

  • How angry pilots got the Navy to stop dismissing UFO sightings (April 24, 2019)
    • “Imagine you see highly advanced vehicles, they appear on radar systems, they look bizarre, no one knows where they’re from. This happens on a recurring basis, and no one does anything..”
  • Fighter pilots from the USS Nimitz Naval Carrier encounter and chased a UFO making worldwide news. The fighters camera footage and press conferences were given as well as disclosing the Top-secret government ‘UFO research’ project called the Advanced Aerospace Threat and Identification Program (AATIP)
  • Research supported with funding from the U.S. Office of Naval Research develop a way to control the speed of light, and send it backward.
    • “We’re able to control the speed of the pulse by going into the pulse itself and reorganizing its energy such that its space and time degrees of freedom are mixed in with each other”
  • In March of 1974, members of the Betz family found an odd Sphere in the woods that seemed to move on its own, have multiple magnetic poles, seamless, made of some strange metal/isotopes. The first government agency to take an interest was the US Navy, they came to collect the sphere to study it. Dr. J. Allen Hynek of Project Bluebook fame plays an interesting part with some interesting quotes. This is a great story that is best told in a four-part podcast on Astonishing Legends, in Part 2 they interview one of the Betz family members. Very good listen; Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4.
  • The US Navy has been granted a patent for an advanced aircraft which resembles a UFO. The Navy applied for the patent in 2016 and it was granted in 2018.
    • “It is possible to reduce the inertial mass and hence the gravitational mass, of a system/object in motion, by an abrupt perturbation of the non-linear background of local spacetime,’ the patent says. The craft described in the patent features a cavity wall filled with gas, which is then made to vibrate using powerful electromagnetic waves. This then creates a vacuum around the craft, allowing it to propel itself at high speeds. The UFO-style ship can be used in water, air or even space. ‘It is possible to envision a hybrid aerospace/undersea craft (HAUC), which due to the physical mechanisms enabled with the inertial mass reduction device, can function as a submersible craft capable of extreme underwater speeds… and enhanced stealth capabilities,’ the patent continues. ‘This hybrid craft would move with great ease through the air/space/water mediums, by being enclosed in a vacuum plasma bubble/sheath.”

Bryce Zabel relates an interesting story; after “Dark Skies” was picked up to be made into a series they were having a celebration party at his house with cast and crew. He relates “…everyone had this MAJIC badges at the party, but one guy does not have a badge… I don’t know this guy. He is telling Brant that he is from Naval Inelegance and that he has seen there show, but they could use some help and they are prepared to help.” In the following days, they went to a meeting with two Navy officers. ~ Interview with Bryce, Somewhere in the Skies Podcast #110
