'Not Unusual To See UFOs' - Says Planetarium Director

As the furore over Derry's alleged UFO sighting continues, Ash
McFadden, Director of the Inishowen Planetarium, speaks to the
'Journal' about his own experience of unidentified flying

Although he doesn't believe in little green men, Mr McFadden,
who is also a rocket scientist, is adamant that UFO's do exist
but may be entirely man-made.

"It's not unusual to see UFOs, there are certainly plenty of
things up there that cannot eas

ily be identified by the average person, or even by scientists
or commercial pilots, and I am both.

"I remain a firm non-believer in UFO's from Outer Space, but I
have seen things that I believe are more like secret projects
than little green men," he said yesterday.

With decades of experience in this particular field, Mr McFadden
knows about space more than most.

"I've definitely seen things I can't identify, one was in
retrograde orbit in the early 60s and was moving in the opposite
direction of the Echo 1 satellite, which moves in the direction
of earth's orbit," he revealed.

"This thing was going west and the only logical way it could be
going in that direction is if it came from somewhere else.

"The second time I saw something was when I was watching a B47
and a KC97 refuelling in mid-air, again in the early 60s.

Twice as fast

"They were at 30,000 feet, high enough to still be in the
sunshine even though the sun had set, and something appeared far
above these aircraft, going twice as fast. Nothing we owned back
then could possibly have done that."

Having watched the skies for most of his life, Mr McFadden says
it would be scientifically impossible for life outside our solar
system to travel to earth," he added.

"If there are UFOs, then I believe they are something on earth
we don't know about, either from America, or Russia or China
maybe. I believe this simply because the distances involved are
so vast. At the speed of light it would take us four years to
get to the nearest star, so you would be looking at a trip of
thousands of years to even reach some far-off conceivably
inhabited star."

"There are certainly things out there flying around that we
don't know about, but that's only because they don't want us to
know about them," he added.
