Somewhere in the Skies

Operation Saucer and the UFO Island

Season 1, Ep. 302

On episode 302 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we head to Brazil to explore the rich history of UFOs throughout the country. In June of 2022, the Brazilian Senate convened to hear testimony from its own military and government officials about UFOs. Also present were speakers from the United States and the United Kingdom. Throughout the course of the hearing, many UFO events were brought to light. We will explore several of these events, including sightings that were photographed off the coast of Trindade, which would be dubbed "UFO Island. We'll also hear of a string of mass UFO sightings known as the "The Night of the UFOs" and the investigation into these anomalous phenomena which would be officially investigated under the code name: Operação Prato (Operation Saucer).

In September of 1965, 18-year old Norman Muscarello spotted a massive cylindrical-shaped object hovering in a field in the sleepy town of Exeter. He frantically reported the event to local police. Several officers would accompany Muscarello back to the site to investigate. And the craft, whatever it was, was back.

  • Comedians on UFOs: Part 2

    06:14:54
    Welcome to Comedians on UFOs: Part 2!We are joined by Tim Barnes, Michael Ian Black, Brian Huskey, Reggie Watts, Andrew Sanford, and Dean Haglund!UFO accounts can sometimes reminds us of a playful world. A humorous world. A species looking for structure and pattern and constantly being bombarded with both chaos and ridiculousness. And that if most definitely UFOs. And it's also comedy. Comedy gives us a communal experience full of confusion and raw emotional release. It makes us feel more human than ever. So when we're faced with something possibly non-human, we can choose to run away from it or fight it. Or, we can embrace it and sometimes, laugh about it. In this series, Ryan digs into the archives of Somewhere in the Skies to bring you a collection of interviews he's conducted throughout the years with comedians. And, as you'll see, a common thread starts to weave its way through these conversations. Why are comedians drawn to UFOs? How can we use it to both accept and possibly even understand UFO phenomenon?Read Ryan’s Articles by CLICKING HEREOpening Theme Song, "Ephemeral Reign" by Per KiilstofteCopyright © 2023 Ryan Sprague.
