Dr. Carl Sagan knew UFOs were real

These new revalations about famous astronomer Dr Carl Sagan bring the whole Ufo topic back into the public spot light. As you may know Mr Sagan was one of the founders of SETI (Search for extraterrestrial Intelligence) and his advice was used for the movie close encounters of the third kind and his book 'contact' became a well known movie with Jodie Foster in 1997. So well resepected was Dr Sagan in the scientific community that Nasa even named their recent 'Study of Extraterrestrial Worlds scholarship' after Mr Sagan.

Although Dr Sagan always officially rejected the idea that Ufos have visited earth secretly he knew they were real. Apparently he wasn't able to express his true opinion as it would have risked funding for research projects like SETI (whose whole basis holds onto upon the flawed belief that ufos & ET's haven't made it to earth) . According to new information, he confided this with  Dr. Allen J. Hynek who was well known for runing the US Airforces only official investigation into Ufos - project Bluebook. Its well known that Dr. Allen J. Hynek came out before his death to say that project Bluebook was both a media stunt and scam used by the US Airforce (who still rely upon this outdated study to this day to reject all further Ufo investigations) to ensure the Ufo topic reamins 'case closed' .  Dr. Allen J. Hynek confided his revelations about Dr Sagan to his former associate Paolo Harris who revealed this conversation recently:

Renowned astronomer and astrophysicist Dr. Carl Sagan revealed to Dr. J. Allen Hynek that he believed UFOs were real but avoided any public statements to prevent the loss of academic research funding.

In an interview with research journalist and author Paola Leopizzi-Harris she commented:

“My recollection is that Hynek said it was backstage of one of the many Johnny Carson Tonight shows Sagan did. He basically said (to Hynek) in 1984, ‘I know UFOs are real, but I would not risk my research (College) funding, as you do, to talk openly about them in public.’ ”

This startling revelation about Carl Sagan, one of this century’s most esteemed scientists and writers, has now been made public by Paola Leopizzi-Harris, a former associate of Dr. Allen J. Hynek who worked with him from 1980 to 1985.

Carl Sagan - "I know UFOs are real..." Dr. J. Allen Hynek served as a civilian scientific consultant to the U.S. Air Force Project Blue Book from 1952 to 1969, initially taking a very critical and skeptical position on anything related to the reality of UFOs. In one of his own reports he stated...

Dr. Jonathan Reed may also have met with Sagan and received advice from him in regards to his alien encounter.

No, I think that Dr. Jonathan Reed met w/ Ivan Marx & Professor Irwin Corey regarding his "alien encounter".

The only alien encounter experienced by Dr. Reed is with a 16 yr old Mexican girl in El Paso.

On many of Dr. Sagan's visits to the Tonight Show, he would say he believed extraterestials may have visited us thousand's of years ago, and they may come back thousand's of years from now... But, they are not visiting us now...
I always wondered why he was so adamant about that... Now I suppose we know why

Dr. Sagan said, on many occasions, that it was possible that extraterestials may have visited us thousands of years ago...
And they may visit us again thousands of years from now....
But they are not visiting us now...
I always wondered why he was so adamant about that... Now I guess we know

It is obvious our Government has aerial vehicle programs it wishes to remain secret so the UFO conspiracy-by-shadow-government-story works quite well in sending people off on wild goose chases while they work. It also seems to prepare the general public for facing the reality that something is going on and needs to be addressed leading to the inevitable funding of the military to protect us from evil alien invasion. The downed drone in Iran tells you everything you need to know about U.S. government motives. Instead of worrying about UFO's we should be trying to travel the stars and become them.
