OK, let’s get it out of our system. On the count of three, let’s all say it out loud: I TOLD YOU SO. Enjoy that moment of gloating because we still have work to do. In what may be the boldest disclosure yet on the UFO question, the people in our lives may suddenly be looking to us to help them make sense of what they just learned.

We all know that the clock is ticking for the US government to release its report sharing what it knows about UFOs or unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP). Yes, there are ways the…

People’s Disclosure

The more the government talks about UFOs, the less I care what it has to say. Be careful what you wish for.

I thought I wanted this…

This was supposed to be the glorious moment when the government finally decided to draw back the curtain far enough to reveal what has always been there — that we are not alone.

While I never expected a giant expo where the government would put on display everything they have collected and recorded related to extraterrestrial life, what we are seeing from the government is more of the same hedging and obfuscation.

A panel of body language experts recently dissected statements made by current and former presidents, going back to Bush Jr, as well as some intelligence officials. They astutely…

We now have more reasons not to trust the media.

Last week Facebook reversed its decision to ban posts suggesting the COVID-19 pathogen is man-made. A spokesperson for the company stated: “In light of ongoing investigations into the origin of COVID-19 and in consultation with public health experts, we will no longer remove the claim that COVID-19 is man-made from our apps.”

While this is a positive development, it highlights the power the media has in controlling information and shaping public opinion. It demonstrates how information, particularly alternative theories and perspectives, was suppressed and how those seeking to share information were ridiculed and discredited. …

Yes, you can. And here is why you might want to.


Like a lot of Americans, 126 million to be exact, I bought into the value proposition offered by Amazon. Since becoming a Prime member in the early 2000’s, Amazon was often the first place I turned to when I needed something. I liked that I could access an ever-expanding selection of products at a competitive price from a variety of sellers and have it show up at my doorstep in a day or two with a simple click of the mouse. As a busy woman, convenience was queen.

That convenience became ever more valuable with a world under lockdown, where…


As public awareness surges, we can celebrate the attention without ceding control of the narrative to government and corporate media interests.

Trail of the Saucers is a writers’ collective, edited by Bryce Zabel, focused on UFO/UAP news, culture, and analysis.

Malcolm Gladwell popularized the notion of the tipping point, which he defines as “the moment of critical mass, the threshold, the boiling point.” Once that point is reached, something that most people never noticed or thought about suddenly starts showing up everywhere, be it a catchphrase, trendy gadget, or an idea. For UFOs, it seems we are at that point. The idea has taken hold, the stigma is being shed, and the scales have tipped.

It doesn’t really matter if the…


Extraterrestrial revelation may be inconvenient for many religions but that is not a good reason to hide the truth.

The Creation of the Sun, Moon, and Planets — Michelangelo | Alt version by Stellar

“A question arises which has been carefully avoided by many traditional theologians... It is the problem of how to understand the meaning of the symbol ‘Christ’ in the light of the immensity of the universe, the heliocentric system of planets, the infinitely small part of the universe which man and his history constitute, and the possibility of other ‘worlds’ in which divine self-manifestations may appear and be received.” — Paul Tillich, Lutheran Minister

The Society of Catholic Scientists is holding a conference in early June on “Extraterrestrials, AI, and Minds Beyond the Human.” Among the discussion items are the potential…

Who Goes There?

It may hint at troubling realities behind the scenes, not just in national security but government control of the UAP narrative. Asking critical questions is our best defense.

“It is not only about what is real and what is not real, but it is also about what does the government want us to believe and not to believe.” — Tyler Rogoway, The Drive

The UAP debate just got more confusing. Much of the debate has centered on videos taken by Navy pilots that appear to show strange objects exhibiting flight characteristics not known to be within human capabilities. Or do they?

While the famed TicTac incident may be truly mysterious, journalist Tyler Rogoway recently suggested in his article, Adversary Drones Are Spying On The U.S., And The Pentagon…

If we knew exactly what our future holds, life would be extremely boring.

The pandemic gave many people an opportunity to think about what they really want in life and dream some new dreams. However, most people never attempt their greatest aspirations or make big changes in their lives. There can be lots of reasons for this, but one that often comes up is not knowing how things will turn out, which can make people very nervous. Absent a guarantee of success, many will cling to what seems known and safe instead of going for what they truly want. …


If there is a Galactic Federation, they probably have an agenda. We should tread carefully if we value human sovereignty.

The idea of a Galactic Federation has been around for a while, especially among Star Trek fans, but it was the mention of it in a December 2020 interview with the former head of Israel’s space program, Haim Eshed, that catapulted it to public awareness. While Eshed’s claims that there is a real Galactic Federation and it has signed agreements with the US government were widely dismissed by popular media as hearsay or a publicity stunt for his book, the questions of whether there is a Galactic Federation and if there is, what role they play for humanity, remain unanswered.

The only thing holding me back in life was me — and my inclination to play it safe.

I had to leave, if for no other reason than to know I could. I needed to have the experience of stepping away from my salary, uprooting myself from my reclusive complacency, and venturing out with confidence into a country in chaos. I wanted to flirt with chance, explore new places, and give birth to a new version of myself. In the passing of miles, I sought to know what it felt like to live life at the crossroads, forever in the present moment, and allow myself to be guided by my intuition and whim.

There were some people who…
