There are numerous reports about UFOs in Hungary, but they were kept secret for decades. For example, one of the biggest streaming providers made a documentary series concerning the so-called UFO documents, which mentions Hungary among the countries where UFO spotting is frequent.
According to Blikk, a Hungarian tabloid, an American secret service official’s recent statement about extraterrestrial life caused a public outcry. As a result, the Senate is already organising his hearing. David Grusch told members of the US Senate earlier that some scientists have been trying to recreate devices that were made by life forms outside planet Earth. He added that no politicians or other decision-makers know about that plan.
Mr Grusch seems to be trustworthy to many people since he worked for the American secret services for 14 years in leading positions. Blikk believes Mr Grusch’s announcement is for authorities to prepare the public for the confirmation of the claim that we are not alone in the universe.
UFO reports exist in Hungary as well. A documentary series mentions Hungary among the countries with the most frequent spottings globally. However, there are no authorities who officially or secretly monitor such activities and analyse them.
In Hungary, amateurs are concerned with UFO sightings. Among them, there is László Miskolci, who regularly spends days reading relevant reports in the Historical Archives of the Hungarian State Security and Hungary’s military history archives. He analysed thousands of reports from the past decades.
No longer kept in secret
Interestingly, UFO sightings are open to the public until 1992. However, after that year, they are confidential. The first such documents emerged in the 1950s talking about events when members of the Hungarian Armed Forces saw unexplainable objects in the air.
One report talks about an unknown flying object above the airbase of Taszár. The soldiers could not even define its exact shape because of an optical phenomenon close to it. The report is from 1969 and 16 MiG-21 planes took off to catch it.
A former soldier connected with Mr Miskolci this January to talk about a bright, conical object in the skies, not far from the barracks he used to live. He said he knows all flying objects, drones and ground lighting systems, but that was different. Therefore, he had to file a report on it. Miskolci said the Hungarian Armed Forces should follow the investigations carried out in the USA and examine the problem more scientifically.
Blikk asked the Hungarian Ministry of defence whether they are concerned in the analysis of UFO sightings. They wrote they never found traces of extraterrestrial activities in the airspace of Hungary. Gyula Knoll, a retired colonel and former pilot, is among those people who saw unidentified flying objects during their flight. He is 93 years old now, but he remembers his encounter that happened in 1960.
He flew with a MiG-17 plane at 4 thousand metres and saw a light source moving towards him at high speed. It passed him 500 metres away and shone like the Sun. It was spheric with a diameter spanning 20-30 metres. He tried to catch it, but then the phenomenon speeded away.
Blikk asked the Hungarian astronaut program, HUNOR, whether they included dealing with extraterrestrial life in the training program. Orsolya Ferenczi, Ministerial Commissioner for Space Research, said that the program does not have such elements.
