Treasure Hunter Says He Found “Alien Craft” In Bermuda Triangle
Gordon Cooper was one of the earliest American astronauts to embark on a manned spaceflight, orbiting the planet 22 times during the final Project Mercury mission in 1963. During that trip, Cooper took thousands of pictures of Earth, using advanced long-range detection equipment to look for hidden weapons in the Caribbean during the Cold War. Now, using his maps and imagery, a treasure hunter says he believes he’s found a massive alien ship off the coast of Florida.
Darrell Miklos is the focus of a reality television show for the Discovery Channel called “Cooper’s Treasure,” in which he is filmed hunting for the sunken remains of 15th century ships, based on information Cooper left him from his Mercury flight. Like all reality television, the show is highly dramatized, so it may be prescient to take these claims with a grain of salt.
But if their discovery turns out to be true, it could yield one of the most profound finds in an area known for a history of strange phenomena – the Bermuda Triangle.
In a video teaser, Miklos is shown exploring underwater in a deep-submergence vehicle, probing a massive coral-covered structure. He claims it is 600-ft. wide with 15-ft. long protrusions, and 300-feet deep off the Florida coast.
The pictures are somewhat difficult to make out, but according to Miklos they are highly anomalous.
“It was a formation unlike anything I’ve ever seen related to shipwreck material, it was too big for that,” Miklos told the Daily Mail. “It was also something that was completely different from anything that I’ve seen that was made by nature.”
Cooper was always a proponent of the UFO phenomenon, claiming to have seen a number of anomalous crafts in his time as an Air Force pilot. Cooper’s testimony has been documented as part of the Sirius Disclosure series and the “Out Of The Blue” documentary, in which he claims to have witnessed UFOs on multiple occasions. Cooper said he believed the government withheld UFO evidence because it feared the public would panic if it knew of the advanced technology.
“Gordon believed in aliens. He believed that we had visitors from other planets and he also believed that a lot of these things landed in this particular part of the world,” Miklos said.
Before being tapped for Project Mercury, Cooper worked for the Experimental Flight Test Engineering Division at Edwards AFB in California as a test pilot and project manager. While working there, two of his colleagues reported seeing a “strange-looking, saucer-like” aircraft flying silently above them before landing on a dried lake bed. As soon as they approached it, the craft retracted its landing gear and took off at incredible speed. Cooper reported the incident to the Pentagon, immediately leading to a request for more information.
Once he had the photos processed he was told not to share them with anyone, but upon viewing the negatives, he saw exactly what his colleagues described. The photos were classified and never seen or heard of again. Cooper believed the government had in fact, covered up evidence of these UFO encounters.
“I want to investigate it,” Miklos said. “I want to see what it is, because it may be nature made, just a freak of nature, but given its placement in this particular part of the Caribbean and given what Gordon has told me about visitors from another planet and the things that I’ve seen, I think it’s definitely worthwhile investigating.”

UFOs in Ancient Art: Hidden in Plain Sight
Millions of people believe extraterrestrials visited earth in spacecraft in ancient times and influenced human affairs. They also believe records of these visitations are preserved and seen as UFOs in ancient art. Is it true? Does ancient art preserve proof of ancient contact with alien spacecraft? Or, is something else being shown?
As a co-producer and presenter on History Channel’s Ancient Aliens, and writer and presenter of Arcanum on Gaia, I have a 30-year passion for this question. It has a very interesting history that must be understood to be properly answered.
Paleo contact, or the theory that extraterrestrial visitors came to earth in ancient times, is a hypothesis first put forth in the 1950s by Soviet mathematician Mikhail Agrest. He proposed that rock art, some of which is over 7,000 years old, portrayed alien visitors wearing space suits and helmets, holding high tech tools, and emerging from flying devices.
Conspiracy theorists say Soviet intelligence co-opted the idea and began popularizing it in the 1960s in order to undermine Western civilization and its religions by planting the idea that the events of the bible, especially the miracles, were nothing but flesh and blood extraterrestrial visitors with advanced technology who came to earth to influence human evolution. This psychological operation (PSYOP) was a cover for Russia’s alleged secret space program and its development of advanced aircraft and weapons supposedly derived from recovered extraterrestrial technology.
As conventional anthropologists of the time argued that the gods were imaginary beings and human evolution and development was gradual, paleo contact was quite a controversial idea.
Evolutionary biologist, Steven J. Gould, further rocked the zeitgeist in 1972 with his theory of punctuated equilibrium, which states that great changes in a species happen very rapidly, followed by long periods of stasis where there is little or no change.
The sudden, miraculous, transition from Homo erectus to Homo sapiens defies the conventional theory of evolution, which states that over the course of millions of years humans evolved from hunter gatherers, to gardeners, to city builders to Mona Lisa painters, to today’s transhumanist technologists. There is a missing link or branch between the more ape-like Homo erectus and modern humans. We share genetics with our ancestors, but our abilities are far greater. Something activated these capabilities. But, what?
Punctuated equilibrium is used to explain it. Some scientists see a powerful connection between our spurts in evolution and asteroid and comet impacts, supernovas, gamma-ray bursts and the strong coupling between our solar system and the galaxy and the evolution of life on Earth.
Why not extraterrestrial visitors, as the ancient Sumerian and Egyptian records claimed? What if, suddenly, the masses realized that we had help from ancient extraterrestrial visitors who came from an otherworldly place beyond human reach and these visitors were a “missing link” that accelerated our evolution? It could have a dramatic destabilizing effect on society, said the famed 1960 Brookings Report. This is why governments and religious institutions covered-up evidence of ancient extraterrestrial contact, say theorists.
