It is claimed that HAARP is a weather manipulation device based on Tesla technology used by the Navy. It is allegedly being tested since the late 60's, which is why we've been having the extreme weather since then (so the story goes). One location of a HAARP facility is Dayton, OH. Wright-Patterson AFB, also in Dayton, is also thought to house a UFO. See the Navy's HAARP site at server5550.itd.nrl.navy.mil/projects/haarp and server5550.itd.nrl.navy.mil/projects/haarp. The true nature of the project is rather to control radio waves bouncing on the ionosphere to jam enemy communications, and long-distance communication with submarines.


In France, North of Strasbourg above Hagenau, a crew of a Beaufighter nightfighter of the 415th NFS saw on December 23, 1944 at 06:00 two lights climbing toward them from the ground. Upon reaching their plane's altitude, they leveled off and stayed on its tail. After staying with the plane for two minutes, they peeled off and turned away, flying under perfect control, and then went out. It was possibly the Me 163 Komet German rocket fighter.

Haisch, Bernard

Bernard Haisch is an active professional astronomer since he earned his doctorate in 1975. He published a respectable number of scientific papers in journals such as Science and Nature, has been Principal Investigator on several NASA studies, Haisch served as referee and proposal reviewer for NASA and NSF, belong to half a dozen professional societies, has chaired international conferences, and has generally engaged successfully in all the usual activities of a busy professional scientist. He has been the director of the California Institute for Physics and Astrophysics (1999-2002), a staff Scientist at the Lockheed Martin, Solar and Astrophysics Laboratory, and Scientific Editor at The Astrophysical Journal (1993-2002). He has discovered that there exists a vast amount of high quality, albeit enigmatic, ufological data for which there is no plausible commonplace explanation, that UFO sightings are not limited to uneducated people in remote rural areas.

He volunteered as a peer reviewer for papers on the UFO phenomenon in the Journal of Scientific Exploration (JSE), and served as its Editor as an unpaid public service. He is involved in various projects for breakthrough discoveries in the physics of propulsion (www.motionsciences.org) and offers a opened minded web site regarding the UFO phenomenon to scientists (www.ufoskeptic.org). He says: "Advances are made by answering questions. Discoveries are made by questioning answers." He carefully suggests that he has acquired that UFOs are real as he got some knowledge on this topic from "insiders."

Haneda AFB

On August 5, 1952, US military air controllers of the Haneda US Air Force Base and radar personal at Shiroi GCI and a F-94 jet were involved in a UFO observation, radar detection and air chase over the bay of Tokyo, Japan.

Hangzhou sighting, 2010

According to the Xinhua news agency, on July 9, 2010, after a UFO was allegedly spotted, airport authorities stopped passengers from boarding planes and outgoing flights were grounded for an hour in Hangzhou, the capital city of China's Zhejiang province. When officials closed the airport, incoming flights were rerouted to other airports. No detailed explanation has been offered to explain the UFO, however, the news agency later said it was just a radar track, probably caused by a military flight they are not supposed to talk about. There was also an unrelated misleading airplane photograph showed to illustrate articles on the events which was then spread as an actual picture of the UFO, and several later reports by Hangzhou residents who told they saw some luminous UFO in the sky hours before the incident.

Harder, James A.

A US scientist an engineer that became actively involved in scientific UFO research, also on the field, and concluded that some reported UFOs do exist and are of extraterrestrial origin. He worked along with Dr. J. Allen Hynek and participated in the 1968 congressional hearings on UFOs where he was among those who asked for a serious scientific approach of the UFO problem.

Harris, Paola:

Paola Leopizzi Harris is an Italian-American writer living both in Rome and Boulder, Colorado, who supports in numerous articles the most fringe-type ufology since 1979. She wrote articles for sensationalists magazines such as Area 51, UFO Magazine, Nexus, Notizario UFO and Dossier Alieni.

She supports the discredited claims of late Col. Philip Corso, the discredited "Majestic 12" documents, and militates for conspirationist-type ufology and "exopolitics" together with other lecturers such as Robert Dean, Steven Greer, Linda Moulton Howe, Dr. Richard Boylan, Russell Targ, Derrell Sims, Bill Hamilton, Ryan Wood. She supports a number of hoaxers such as Carlos Diaz, so-called "contactees" such as Alex Collier or the self-proclaimed "alien/human hybrid" Michael Wolf. One of her 2008 conference theme was to promote a so-called "Project Looking Glass"; which supposedly managed to build a device to see the future based on "instruments found in UFOs and Sumerian descriptions".

Hatch, Larry

US ufologist Larry Hatch runs one of the Internet's largest UFO cases list at his website www.larryhatch.net. His copyrighted "U Database" contained dozens of maps highlighting UFO sightings throughout the years.

He says that "none of this proves or disproves the extraterrestrial hypothesis (ETH), alien abductions, time travel, extra space dimensions or even wilder theories. This website shows UFO maps and graphs hoping that real patterns or clues may emerge, UFO evidence if not proof, some genuine ufology at least."

Many cases from the older UFOCAT catalogue are not thoroughly filtered so that confusions and hoaxes cases are included.

Heard, Gerald

Early British-Irish UFO books writer (1889-1971) who authored "The Riddle of the Saucers" in U-K in 1950, published as "Saucers: Is Another World Watching?" in the US. Heard did not leave a profound trace in ufology, but senior ufologists remember of his "Martian Bees" theory: As anti-UFO astronomer Kuiper told that although he does not "believe in" flying saucers, he was sympathetic to the idea on life on other planets such as Mars, and that Martians may be for examples insect-like creatures like bees, Heard built the notion that flying saucers are piloted by "Martian Bees", "perhaps two inches in length, as beautiful as the most beautiful flowers, any beetle, moth or butterfly" with "a head of sapphire, a thorax of Emerald, and abdomen of ruby, wings like opal, legs like topaz..." Needless to say, no "Martian Bee" appears in any serious reports of close encounters with UFOs and occupants. Later, Heard changed his minds on flying saucer and embraced psychoanalyst C.G. Jung that they are motherly symbols in the sky that are just an illusion produced by a so-called collective psyche of mankind.

Heseltine, Gary

Gary Heseltine is an English detective constable and serving police officer who became interested in UFO sightings since he witnesses a UFO at age 15 in 1975, and founded the PRUFOS (Police Reporting UFO Sightings) Database. He also is the author and creator of the magazine UFO Monthly.

He has spoken at international conferences in 22 countries across five continents, at 30 universities, and at the United Nations. He is an associate member of the Society for Scientific Exploration.

Hill abduction case

A controversial abduction case because it all hinges on information gained by performing hypnotic regression on Betty and Barney Hill. In September 1961, the Hills were returning from a holiday and were driving along a New Hampshire road when they saw a bright light moving rapidly in the sky. They stopped the car and got out to have a closer look with binoculars. The light then reversed its direction and the couple got back into their car and drove on. The light then turned back and approached their car, so they stopped again to look at it. The craft was coin shaped with blue lighted windows along the edge, through which they saw figures running about. Barney walked over the road to get an even better look when two wings came out of either side of the craft that had red lights on the wing tips. He then got shocked and very agitated and ran back into the car and the two of them went back on their journey home. When they got back, they realized that they were some two hours late and they didn't know why. After a few days, Betty had a series of disturbing dreams, so she and Barney agreed to go under hypnotic regression to try and find out just what happened during those two lost hours. The two were sent into a hypnotic sleep both together and separately, and both stories matched up with each other for the times when they were together during the UFO incident. The story went like this: When the Hills stopped the car the second time, it was because it was stalled by the UFO. The two were helped out of their car by a few men (alien men) and were taken off of the road and up a ramp into the UFO. They were then separated and put into different rooms where they underwent an examination involving taking samples from various areas of the body. Before being joined together and being allowed to leave, Betty was shown a three-dimensional holographic star map and was able to draw it out after a regression session. An amateur astronomer took the drawing of the star map and searched through the near stars to see if she could get a match for the star configuration drawn by Betty. After another five years of searching, she found one, and therefore calculated that the aliens must have come from the Zeta Reticuli system.

Hoagland, Richard

Wrote a book about the face on Mars. See his website at www.enterprisemission.com/hoagland.html. For many years Richard Hoagland has claimed that the US Government, as well as NASA, is covering up the alleged Face on Mars in the Cydonia Mensae region of Mars. Hoagland also claims that NASA has video taped UFOs filmed during some space shuttle missions. Hoagland also claims that NASA has more evidence of a possible civilization on the surface of Mars, namely the City of pyramidal objects located near the Face.

Hopkins, Budd

Budd Hopkins graduated from Oberlin College. He is also a painter and sculptor. He has been investigating UFO reports for the last 12 years. Budd became interested in UFOs after seeing one himself many years ago. His primary area of study is UFO abductions.

Howe, Linda

Linda Moutlon-Howe wrote a book "An Alien Harvest"; which describes cattle and horse mutilations. One possibility she raises is the aliens are using the cattle to monitor a toxin through our food chain that they put there. She also supports a hoaxed affair of alien abduction set up by a guy called Urandir.

Hudson Valley sightings

Several thousand ordinary people reported to have seen an amazing number of UFOs often huge and in "V" or triangle shape. These sightings were located in the Hudson Valley, state of New York. The eruption of sighting reports started in 1983, had a dramatic peak from 1984 to 1985, and gently calmed down since although there have been such sighting reports continuously up to now. Something invaded the air, hovered above the homes and roads of one of the more populated area in the world.

Huyghe, Patrick

Patrick Huyghe is a science writer with a lifelong interest in anomalies. His work has appeared in Omni, Discover, and numerous other magazines. He is also the author of three books: Glowing Birds, The Big Splash (with Dr. Louis A. Frank), and Columbus was Last. He gathered many of his ufology articles in the book Swamp Gas Times.

Hynek Classification System

The main classification of UFO reports in use is based upon one used by Dr J. Allan Hynek in his book "The UFO Experience" (Aberlard-Schuman 1972). It should be noted that many other classification systems have been devised by other researchers. Briefly the Hynek system is:

Hypnotic regression

There is a theory that everything you see and hear is stored into the subconscious memory, and that it is possible to recount experiences via the use of hypnotic regression, in which the person is sent into a trance and re-enacts the experience. However, such a tool is very unreliable since they could be thinking about something else or mix two different experiences together. Another problem with hypnotic regression is interpreting what is recounted. In a non-UFO related case, an English girl was sent into a hypnotic state and started to talk non-stop in French. What she said was recorded and the investigator concluded that the girl must have been French in a past life. This theory was readily accepted until someone read the transcription of what the girl had said and found that it was an exact copy of a French text she had read. It has also been found that pathological liars can lie whilst under hypnosis.
