Since 1967, Mrs. Stella Lansing has produced over fifty rolls of 8mm movie film depicting saucer-shaped UFOs and other unidentified objects, using a variety of cameras under many different conditions. It has become something of a hobby for her - almost a compulsion. Following her intuitive impressions, at all hours of the day or night, in all sorts of weather, often accompanied by researchers, she roams about the countryside with her camera. Many times the strange lights in the sky she manages to photograph have been witnessed by friends, neighbors and independent observers. Some of her sightings have been verified by officials at the local airport. Sometimes other people accompanying Mrs. Lansing are also able to photograph the strange lights.
On the other hand, many of her pictures are quite unlike the lights that have been witnessed. Objects and faces appear on the film. In fact, investigation suggests Mrs. Lansing can exert a psychokinetic effect upon film, videotape, and even large static objects. Strange sounds and voices also appear on audio tapes in her presence. Some of her apparent psychic photographs show images of flying saucers in a clocklike formation.
Nearly every time she takes a picture, something odd shows up. Whether it be faces of people not in the room, strange UFO like objects or deformities in her own face. Some examples of her amazing photography are as follows:
Two self portraits taken seconds apart, the second one shows an odd deformity near her eye
One of her more average pictures, a UFO
This was recorded near a ridge where she was shooting high tension wires.
And one of her more incredible instances, a picture of 3 men captured near her home, on Munson Hill, Mass. None of whom were in the room when the picture was taken. The photo has baffled photo specialists for decades. It was nicknamed “The occupants”
And heres an artist’s cleaned up version
The most shocking thing about the occupants is that when transferred to video tape, unidentified voices start to appear… impossible as her 8mm camera could not record sound. The voices appear to belong to the unidentified men, sadly the audio is too fuzzy to make out what is being said. (Listen to it here)
In 1971 Lansing was accompanied by respected Psychiatrist, Dr. Schwarz, when the following was recorded
Two red-orange orbs appeared in the sky. “…First theres one then theres two, they’re blinking, they hop around…” Schwarz commented.
20 years later, Stella returned to Munson Hill in the accompaniment of a film crew to see if they could repeat the photographs under controlled conditions, with the same results of orbs along with other strange anomalies.
And last but not least, the clock series.
Whenever she would take a picture, a mysterious clock-like light would appear
It could not be a lens flare, as you can see in the image above, it overlaps the frames.
Even more bizarre, when zoomed in, the clock like lights appear to be saucer shaped UFOs
The theory of the clock series being the result of a light leak was debunked when she got the same results on 6 different cameras, 2 different types of film, in all different environments, in 5 different states.
For 30 years Stella kept meticulous records of all of her sightings, there were hundreds of them. She wrote down what she saw, wrote down times of anomalies, and kept all the film she’d shot.
“I probably didn’t realize that it was kind of a gift or anything in the beginning, I was just trying to get proof of what I was seeing. I tried with every kind of camera I had, and as this went along, I said to someone ‘if only I had a movie camera’ and they let me borrow theirs and that’s when I started to get my very first nighttime sightings” Stella said in a 1991 interview.
“8mm tapes are so small, it’s nearly impossible to tamper with them without a sophisticated laboratory… You’d need a Walt Disney studio to do it. A person like Stella Lansing could not do it” Said one photo specialist while inspecting some of her footage.
The case of Ms. Lansing is truly fascinating and surprisingly hardly anyone has heard of it. I really enjoyed researching the case and wish there were more sources of information that I could gather from. (Also sorry for the long post).
