UFO Shot Down An ICBM - An Incident That Was Confidential For 17 Years
Dr. Robert Jacobs watched a brief film in September 1964 that forever altered his life, and he saw in that film that a UFO shot down an ICBM.
When did this happen? It happened in 1964.
I was part of a government cover-up for 17 years. I was the officer in charge of photographic instrumentation at Vandenberg Air Force Base from 1963 to 66,
in a press conference in October 2021, Bob Jacobs said.
He was in charge of a 100-person team whose job it was to record and film top-secret tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles.
His superior, Major Mansmann, requested him to build an extremely long-range video camera system north of Big Sur while he was stationed at what is now Vandenberg Space Force Base close to Los Angeles, California.
According to Jacobs, the new theodolite or telescope could "see with clarity at 160 miles (257km). It was incredible."
Lieutenant Jacobs followed instructions.
He led his group to Big Sur, a stunning national park close to Monterrey in Central California, where they set up the enormous new apparatus.
Compared to the earlier technology, it proved to be far more capable.
The missile was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base on September 14, 1964, and it was traveling toward a small atoll in the Pacific Ocean as its target.
The rocket carried a fake nuclear bomb as cargo.
A novel chaff system to fool Russian anti-nuclear missile defenses was tested during the launch.
The launch went off without a hitch.
The missile was locked just before launch by Dr. Jacobs' team.
The rocket was seen on the earlier tracking systems.
The brand-new, enormous telescope was also tracking properly.
The team had radar tracking and knew the test was successful even though they couldn't see the live view because it was being recorded using a kinescope.
Release the champagne. Everybody rejoiced.
After packing things, they returned to the base.
Major Mansmann called Jacobs two days later.
"Lieutenant, come to my office immediately," Mansmann remarked.
Jacobs followed instructions and reported to the strategic headquarters.
In an interview with Bob Salas posted on YouTube in October 2021, Jacobs remarked,
It was an imitation warhead.
The new Atlas D Nose Cone missile system was put to the test to see if it could launch chaff to fool Russian anti-missile defenses.
In the video, Jacobs could see the rocket's nose cone traveling 8,000 miles per hour into subspace.
As expected, the nose cone opened, and a metallic chaff cloud emerged.
The sun's rays caught the chaff cloud's reflection.
The warhead, which looked like a big bullet, then came out of the nose cone without any trouble and went through the chaff.
So far, the test was proceeding according to plan.
And here a UFO shot down an ICBM.
"Lieutenant Jacobs," Major Mansmann said, "were you guys screwing around out there?"
So what was that, then? said Mansmann.
"Looks to me like we've got a UFO," Jacobs said.
"You are never to say that again! As far as you're concerned.
This never happened. You understand?" Mansmann said.
"Yes, sir," Jacobs said.
"I don't need to remind you of the seriousness of a security breach, do I?"
"Okay, you are dismissed, lieutenant."
Major Mansmann followed Jacobs to the door and leaned close to his ear.
"If you are ever being tortured over this…
and you have to give them something, tell them 'it was laser tracking.'"
In 1964, lasers were still experimental technologies.
Jacobs departed and was silent for 17 years.
He then came to a realization. He was obligated to keep confidential material private by his officer oath.
This, however, was never categorized. It "never happened" that way.
The National Enquirer published the article that Jacobs wrote.
His life then began to alter.
At his residence, he started getting threatening phone calls.
His mailbox was bombed, and when it went off, someone cursed at him over the phone.
He relocated his family to a tiny rural community. Because of it, he lost his job.
However, he was told to hide it, so he did.
According to some people, there was nothing like a UFO shot down an ICBM. What do you think of this tale, guys?
Have you had any unusual experiences?
