Case File Information

Kumburgaz, Turkey case developed between the years of 2007, 2008, and 2009. During that time reports of unknown aerial objects were reported across Turkey. During that time a series of videos were also taken by a local resident of the Yeni Kent Compound near the Sea of Marmara on the European coast of Turkey.

The case is still under investigation and there is much more needed to either confirm or solve the case including translating the witness reports from the Turkish to English.  So far nobody has yet been able to demonstrate that the recordings are a hoax. The most significant aspect about this case is the stunning close range video taken over several days between June 20, 2007 and May 17, 2009. The video was recorded with a camera that had a tele-converter adapter capable of 200 times optical achieving a great amount of detail.

"The objects in the footage have the structure of a specific material that is definitely not made up by any kind of computer animation, balloon, prop, model, or special effects used for simulation in a studio." The Science and Technology Research Board of Turkey

I am not quite sure on how to upload a video I am not too computer savy but here is a link to the footage.

Now alot of people claim this to be images from marine equipment and what not, but I guess you have to decide for yourself!


There were more than 12 witnesses. One English speaking person in attendance was researcher Roger Leir. He was standing only feet from the camera with 7 to 8 others.  People through out the near by have seen these UFO's as well.  After the witnesses were interviewed one by one the next step was to analyze the video. Haktan Akdogan of SIRIUS (Turkey's version of MUFON) had the video looked at by The National Council For The Study Of Science And Technology and the National Observatory of Turkey which is sponsored by the state and highly influential.

They appeared on national television to discuss their analysis. (TV News Coverage of TUBIAK Report) Furthermore Jose Atenas with experience in graphics and video for 30 years on television reviewed the footage. Recently Mario Valdes, from Chile, and Jim Dellitoso from Village Labs looked at it. Also others from Japan, Russia, and Turkey have analyzed it.

From Black Vault User: OddDuck   This is another cryptid people have seen and there are multiple pictures of.  This creature is a bazaar one to say the least.  Unfortunately it is also too decayed to see what it truly is.  My own thoughts are that maybe this is a creature that was around with the …
