My UFO Encounter – Caught on Video

At around 2 a.m., o
n the evening of December 13, 2013, I saw a UFO hovering in the sky outside my home-office window in Stamford, CT. I was working on a documentary film, and so I grabbed my videocamera (which was sitting on my desk) and began videotaping.

Here´s a short video I recently created explaining the events of that night. At the end of the video, you can see the entire (1-minute) UFO footage:

I would like to mention that I was invited to be a featured speaker at “CONTACT IN THE DESERT 2018,” an annual conference in Indian Wells, CA (June 1-4). For years I respectfully declined speaking at UFO conferences, mainly because I don´t discuss UFOs in my research. However, I reversed course a couple of years back and began appearing on History Channel´s ANCIENT ALIENS series. The response has been overwhelmingly positive, and so I will continue to address the UFO community. Here´s a link to my speaker page:   

On the night of my encounter…

I was sitting at my desk around 2 a.m., working with my video camera producing a documentary film. Suddenly I felt a presence staring over my shoulder. Like someone was watching me. 

The upper half of my window was open, despite the cold temperature outside. When I turned quickly toward the window, I saw a strange light in the sky. It moved like nothing I´d ever seen. Hovering, pulsating with light, floating back and forth. I could tell within a few seconds it wasn´t an airplane landing at nearby JFK or La Guardia Airport in New York City.  It didn´t look like a helicopter, and there was no sound. It was way too big, and moved too futuristically, to be a drone.

Immediately it hit me: “This is a UFO—100%”

Halfway into the video, you can see I tried to get the window pane into the shot to try to give the footage some scale. This is the best part of the video. You see exactly what I saw. My heart was racing. The camera was shaking.

Incredibly, right then a second UFO appeared.

This second UFO enters from the right of the screen and quickly passes to the left. Strangely, I only noticed the second UFO when I reviewed the video afterwards. Hard to believe, because the second UFO is so clear on video. As you can see, I don´t follow the second UFO with my camera. Why not? (Very strange that I didn´t see it, since this was perhaps one of the most awakened and alert moments of my life. My eyes were glued on that saucer. To this day it remains a mystery to me how I didn´t see that second UFO.)

The entire encounter lasted 2 minutes. I only recorded a piece of it. I was more focused on experiencing the moment. This video is very special to me, because I´ve always been fascinated by UFOs. The trouble is, more than 85 % of the videos you see on YT and FB are fake, as the top UFO investigators realize. I will always cherish my own UFO video because it´s the only one I know 100% is not hoax footage.

Exactly what a UFO is, I can´t say for sure, but I will be providing more thoughts at this year´s CONTACT IN THE DESERT 2018:  

I am freely sharing this video online, and I am hereby releasing this video into the public domain, in the hopes that in some way it can help us better understand the UFO phenomenon.

Thank you,

Richard Cassaro’s new book, The Missing Link, explores the meaning, transformations and propagation of the ancient world’s most important religious icon. His first book, Written in Stone, is a wide-ranging exploration of hitherto-unknown connections among Freemasons, medieval cathedral builders and the creators of important ancient monuments, in support of his theory that a spiritually advanced mother culture, lost to history, is behind many of the world’s architectural and artistic traditions.

Prior to the publication of Written in Stone, Cassaro enjoyed a successful career as a U.S. correspondent, professional journalist, and photo researcher for Rizzoli Publications, one of the world’s leading media organizations. Cassaro, who is a graduate of Pace University in New York City, has examined first-hand the ancient ruins and mystical traditions of Egypt, Mexico, Greece, Italy, Sicily, France, England, India, Peru and Spain; he has lectured on his theories to great acclaim in the United States, Egypt, Italy, Spain and Peru.
