New Book Claims to Publish the First Photos From Inside a UFO
Of all the dicey, grainy, black-and-white UFO photos, the supposedly groundbreaking ones published in Dr. Roberto Pinotti's new book UFO CONTACTS IN ITALY: VOLUME ONE: 1907-1978 are probably the grainiest and least convincing. Published by Flying Disk press, the book is supposed to be a collection of the most "impressive" UFO encounters, chosen from among the "12,000 UFO Italian cases CUN [Centro Ufologico Nazionale] has in its files." The highlight of the book is supposed to be from the "friendship case" that began in the Italian town of Pescara between 1956 and 1957.
According to Pinotti:
"A group of local residents seems to have been involved in periodic regular contacts with humanlike extra-terrestrial 'friends' willing to help mankind. These beings would have built underground bases on Earth and in Italy the most important one would have been in the central zone of the peninsula along the Adriatic coast not far from Pescara."
This relationship supposedly went on for roughly two decades, and included the extraterrestrials allowing a photographer to come inside a flying saucer and take pictures of the "control cabin," as well as the pilot. Unfortunately, the monochromatic photo of the "cabin" looks more like the inside of a dollhouse's bathroom, while the alien pilot bears a striking resemblance to a man wearing a wig, a dark cloak, and a pair of sunglasses.
Roberto Pinotti is one of the leading Italian UFO researchers, and has a pretty impressive resume: he's a former NATO military officer with a degree in politics and sociology and one of the founders of the Italian UFO organization CUN, "one of the world's oldest and most authoritative private UFO study organisations."
Even the smartest Ufologists fall for obvious fakes and badly constructed hoaxes, however—Chris Mellon, one of the key members of the To the Stars Academy, recently cited a photo of a mylar party balloon as the UFO encountered in the famous Nimitz incident, despite the fact that the balloon photo was taken a year after the incident in Manchester, England, not San Diego. Also, it was a balloon, not a UFO.
