Beyond Belief: Intercepting UFO Reports with Erica Lukes (September 2016)

Season 6, Episode 23
Available worldwide

January 14, 2016, ham radio operator Pat Daniels intercepted a radio transmission from American Airlines flight 434 reporting an encounter with a strange flying object near Nephi, Utah. The pilot described the object as a bright-glowing orange square nearly a mile wide. As soon as Erica Lukes got wind of this transmission, MUFON was on the case submitting FOIA requests to the FAA for all radar reports and audio recordings related to this event. The materials that they received confirmed the radio operator’s story and raised more questions about what really happened that day. This interview with George Noory was originally webcast September 7, 2016.

When she picked up her first book on UFOs at the age of 6, Erica Lukes became interested in the subject. She joined MUFON after several unexplained sightings in the Salt Lake valley and believes, with the NSA and Dugway proving ground in her backyard, there is lot of unexplained phenomenon that must be documented and shared with the world. As State Director of Utah, her goal is to put Utah back on the MUFON radar.

: LOL, wow. Nothing against George, but he knows and: all these so called UFO-researchers KNOW that the Billy: Meier-Contact-Case, which is still ongoing after ~70-years, is an authentic-case, in which the Plajarens have laid out the answers for these questions or: concerns proposed by these researchers. : Yet, you guys deliberately-ignore that case at every-turn.

: The Plajarens, with their scientifically-vetted-data, sometimes ~30-years in advance of an event, have expalained that all abductions are FICTION, with the exception of the Barney and: Bettty-Hill-case. : They explain why and: HOW. : Mr. Adamski, was a charlatan who confabbed his story about contact to sell book, and that he did. : So when I hear these conversations I wonder if deliberate-fraud is taking place with the sheer lack of talk about an ONGOING-contact. : The UFO-corporation, sorry "community" is always gripping about the TRUTH. : But when the FACTS/TRUTH come to fruition, what do you guys do? : Still talk about lights in the sky and: alien-hybirds.

Go to Gaia TV and listen to Regina Meredith with Len Kasten, Parts 1 & 2, "Journey to the Planet Serpo". (Ebans from Serpo, Zeta Reticuli system) That craft was supposed to have landed at Holloman AFB. That is why the ETs got back in the craft and took off. Our military sent 12 Americans to Serpo in 1965 and 7 returned in 1987.

I I saw a UFO sept 5th over Ft Detrick, MD for 5 minutes and have googled a few times only to find it's not reported, except by me. I reported it to MUFON but you would think more reports would be easily available on google.

It was at 2 pm and perhaps few people look at the sky at that time. But for a while was near the tree line. I respect this woman's work because she is trying to get reporting systems and information sharing in place. I have a split second of video. I didn't get more because I didn't have my glasses and wasn't capturing the craft.

I did put it on my social media because fear of ridicule. I am already 'out there' enough. So I elect this show because she's not trying to be sensational and have the next New thing, but for a method of recording available, research. Thanks!!

You know, Et's are going to keep the secretive status with a majority of humans until we can get past the point of referring to them as "creatures." When we grow up enough we can accept the fact that we are not top of the totem pole without total fear, then perhaps we join the universal community. Until then we will just be chasing the ET's rides and speculating in the small mannered way that we can.

It is amazing to me that she works for MUFON and knows no more than the rest of us?

Only one small side of a multi-faceted subject.

I am so excited to hear someone speak about orange orbs! I hear about blue orbs, white orbs, never orange. I live on the ground floor of an apartment building in the middle of a very hectic, crazy big city. One night I had a votive candle lit in my cavelike bathroom, and I was sitting on the toilet meditating (this is the most quiet place in my apartment, understand) and an orange orb, the color of the flame, floated out it (the size of a quarter). It stayed for about a minute as I watched it very slowly float upwards in the shower stall and then downwards over to me, and it went poof about a foot from my feet and disappeared. No being popped out of it. One psychic said it might have been a guide. My frame of mind was particularly happy before it happened, and whatever it was, it was very loving and happy too. Thank you Erika and George.

I've seen gold orange orbs that were more diamond-shaped on closer inspection which I believe were craft instead of orb beings. But I have friends who have experienced orb beings who were captured by digicams at their various social gatherings. They seem to be attracted to joyful or sincere spiritual energy, so congrats on attracting one during your meditation!

What a refreshing interview I always wanted to know more from Erika Lukes and her work, congratulations George. !:)

Just lead to more speculation. Is it ours? Is it Russian? Is it ET? Is it Interdimensional travellers or guys from the future???, posted on October 12, 2016

I don't recall saying "gee". If anyone tells you they have answers to any of this, they should be questioned., posted on October 12, 2016

Thank you for your kind comments.

I'm reading so much negative crap ... just wanted to say "I Enjoyed This Show" ;)

drm1060, posted on September 15, 2016

That was my thought. She has said absolutely nothing, as she kept repeating, "gee, I don't know", in answer to almost every question.

I think I'm getting jaded on UFOs. Now when I see one it doesn't even seem odd. I still want to know is it ours or theirs, and what's going on , but UFOs are very common sightings now. I know others may not feel this way. I get excited when someone has their first sighting because I remember when I did, but it's just not the same for me personally. And now I have to ask, is this the plan? The overall drip of info causing us to be blase about the ET/UFO presence? I feel information gathering is still very important, and I applaud the people doing the work.

This charming lady needs to connect with Corey Goode/David Wilcock on For many of the answers she is seeking. It's great info and very much up-to-date! Cheers B
