In Plain Sight: An investigation into UFOs and impossible science
Award winning Australian journalists enduring quest to decode the UFO enigma and the possible government cover-up.
"In Plain Sight: An Investigation into UFOs and Impossible Science" by Ross Coulthart is a journalistic exploration into the enigmatic world of unidentified flying objects and the science behind them. Coulthart examined evidence of UFO sightings, delved into first hand accounts, declassified documents, and government responses to these phenomena.
Award-winning investigative journalist Ross Coulthart's fascination with UFOs began in his teens, sparked by reports of enigmatic lights near New Zealand's Kaikoura mountains in 1978. This event was among the myriad of sightings dating back to the 1940s, which have perpetually intrigued the public and researchers alike. Despite the frequency and persistence of these incidents, the study of UFOs continues to be marginalized, often relegated to the fringes of serious scientific inquiry and dismissed as the purview of eccentrics and conspiracists. The book investigated the potential technologies that could explain the seemingly impossible maneuvers observed in UFO encounters, questioning whether they could be advanced earthly inventions or evidence of extraterrestrial visitations. Coulthart also scrutinized the stigma surrounding UFO research and advocated for a more open scientific inquiry free from ridicule and preconceptions. The narrative seeked to uncover the truth behind the UFO mysteries, urging the scientific community to consider the extraordinary possibilities they might represent.
