Tonight’s premiere of Chasing UFOs has the blogosphere buzzing – and it’s no wonder. Between questions of which presidential candidate is better equipped to handle an alien invasion (Obama apparently), Ryder’s plan to feed Chuck Norris to hostile aliens, Miss Universe’s challenge to potential alien beauty queens and our impending Wow! Reply, there’s plenty to talk about. And if you’re looking to dig a little deeper into this world, look no further than the bloggers below, who talk UFOs and paranormal activity daily. Read on for a taste of what they’ve been discussing in anticipation of the show:
World Mysteries shares “evidence” that there may be intelligent life on other planets and asks their readers to weigh in. Here are a few of the responses:
“Is there intelligent life on other planets? That is a moot question. It would be more realistic to consider if there is intelligent life on Planet Earth.” -Ab Asaff
“As there are billions of planets in the Universe it’s ludicrous to think that many do NOT hold ‘alive’, ‘intelligent’ and even ‘conscious’ entities (not that the latter would necessarily need a physical space to exist as consciousness transends time & space).” -Ian
“For those of you waiting for evidence that aliens and UFOs exist the time has arrived. My own UFO story here in San Diego has made the front page of every newspaper in town and for good reason. My accidental photo of 10 daylight UFOs taken on July 1 1990 has provided a lost sacred symbol successfully linking UFOs to each other as well as countless ancient artifacts and the Nazca Lines in Peru. The Los Angeles Times, who broke the story, have labeled the evidence on my non-profit website and Youtube video ‘UNSETTLING’.” -Mike Orrell

We’ve been talking a lot about the Wow! Signal recieved in 1977 – Javier Ortega at Ghost Theory provides some more background on the cosmic bleep and talks about a possible connection that goes back another 10 years to 1967:
“But hold on a minute! Let’s take this back yet another decade. Taking it back 45 years ago, on the night of October 4th, 1967, when residents of a small and tranquil fishing village saw what they believed to be an airplane in distress. From a distance, many observed large orange lights flying at a low altitude. With a fiery roar, the objects whooshed through the dark sky and dove straight into the shallow waters of Shag Harbour. The sighting that night was not of an airplane in distress, but rather one of Canada’s most famous UFO sightings. The infamous Shag Harbour UFO incident.
The 1967 UFO incident goes down as one of the most credible because of the involvement with Canadian and American military forces. So exactly 10 years after this important UFO sighting, we received the strange signal from space. As if the aliens were reaching out to say: ‘We know you’re home!'”

Alejandro Rojas from UFO Daily News had the opportunity to do a little UFO chasing of his own with James, Ben and Ryder. While he’s a fan of the whole crew, he was especially taken with Ryder and I can’t say that I’m surprised – Lara Croft has got nothing on this girl. As Alejandro shares:
“Don’t get me wrong, she is not just your token pretty co-host, she is actually an executive producer of the show, and incredibly accomplished. She has traveled the world climbing mountains, scaling glaciers, and doing a lot of other stuff I would probably end up hurting myself if I tried. You may recognize her from SyFy’sDestination Truth. I can attest to her athleticism. We chose a hill top as a base camp for our night sky watch and I was astounded to see her run up and down the hill several times with loads of heavy equipment.”
