Blogging UFOs: What Do You Make of Professor Robert Jacobs’s Bizarre UFO Testimony?

This segment of the UFO documentary, Out of the Blue , features in its first half the UFO testimony of Professor Robert Jacobs. Jacobs, in the 1960s, was in the military and he recounts an amazing UFO event that changed his perspective on life. The second half of this segment discusses a UFO that appears to have disabled a cluster of siloed ICBMs. I think that both of these stories are fascinating, and worth pondering:

And here’s Jacobs telling his story to Larry King:

    Don’t you think it’s possible that this man faked the film?

    • Just saying you are speculating about something for which you have not spent 30 seconds researching. It is an indisputable fact, according to military records, that Dr. Jacobs served as the junior officer in charge of ICBM photography. He was so well respected that he is the only air force photographer to receive the Air Force Missile Badge. Finally, just how do you think Dr. Jacobs could “fake” a film that is being manned by eight other individuals simultaneously? Get a life.

    He is a professor of drama and theatre-just saying

    • Independent confirmation of the incident has been provided, for the record, by Chief Science Officer and Lt. Jacobs commanding officer at Vandenberg AFB, Major Florenz J. Mansmann. His private and public acknowledgement of the incident is available to read all over the internet.

      I 100% believe him. He had everything to lose and nothing to gain.. Its the way he talks about it, his mannerisms. If he is acting or lying he deserves an award more prestigious than an Oscar. hed definitely be the best actor in the world..

      I saw a “orb” back in the late 90’s that was definitely not of this world. I lived in Sweetwater Texas which is about 42 miles east of Dyess Air force Base. We would see military planes ever so often but this was not a military plane. It changed direction at the drop of a hat. We recorded it on our big ass tape recorder, that took full size VHS tapes haha and we had sent a few copies to abfew different TV shows but heard nothing back. Unfortunately my uncle stole the tape because he thought he could sell it for a lot of money. I was 8-10 at the time and what i saw is burned into my mind so i can only imagine what impression it leaves on ppl who actually see an unidentified flying object up close snd personal like Prof Jacobs. What i saw was just a ball of light in the sky moving east to west so fast i couldnt keep my eyes on it and my dad could barely follow it with the recorder. So to see something so close you can almost make out exactly what it is must leave lasting a impression..

    The question I would ask Jacobs is why did they show him the video and then tell him to never speak of it. All they had to do was not show it to him.

    probably wanted to know “what was that”,its in the interview!

  6. I like his one line that completely makes no sense “He asks me, ‘were you guys screwing around up there?’ Who the hell would ask that? If there answer happened to be “yes, we were screwing around – we were chasing each other around and snapping a rolled towel at each others butt’s” How would that make a UFO appear on the film that shoots lasers at a ICBM?

    This guy is full of b.s. and ONCE AGAIN…..AS USUAL…..there is NO VIDEO TO SHOW THE PUBLIC AS PROOF. Just left with anecdotes from ex USAF dopes.

  7. I find his testimony more conviencing then any other eye witness who has gone on record. He seems like a total no nonsense kind of guy who wouldn’t make up something like that. On top of that his superior Major Manmens went on record as well putting his reputation on the line backing up his entire statement on the incident.
