Investigative journalist Ross Coulthart’s new book exploring the mystery of Unidentified Flying Objects.

UFOs – also known as UAPs – Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, aka flying saucers, orbs, black triangles, discs. Whatever you call them, they are a mystery that has intrigued humans for thousands of years.

And, despite decades of ridicule and stigma attached to the phenomenon, recent admissions by the US military, intelligence services, and US Government officials are now signalling a huge shift in attitude to whatever it is.

About the Book

In unprecedented admissions, those same US Government, military and intelligence officials are now admitting that, whatever it is, it is real. That it deserves to be investigated.

Award-winning investigative journalist Ross Coulthart has been intrigued by UFOs since mysterious glowing lights were reported and filmed near New Zealand’s Kaikoura mountains when he was a teenager. The 1978 sighting is just one of thousands since the 1940s, and yet research into UFOs has generally been dismissed for decades as the realm of crackpots and conspiracy theorists. Like many people, Ross accepted the official explanations that offered prosaic and mundane explanations for the weird sightings. He worked for decades in a media industry that was generally dismissive of UFOs-UAPs, treating the subject with stigma and ridicule.
Mellon and Ross - Former Deputy Assistant US Secretary of Defence Christopher Mellon with Ross Coulthart at his home in Pennsylvannia. He says the strange craft filmed by the US Navy aren’t American, Russian or Chinese as far as he knows.Which leaves the central mystery, who are they and where are they from?
Dusk at Harold E. Holt - The still secretive Australian naval communications station Harold E. Holt at sunrise. This is as close as military police let our cameras get anywhere near the facility - site of numerous strange sighting of anomalous craft, including the glowing orb seen in October 1973.

In 2020, however, after decades of denial, the US Department of Defence made the astonishing admission that strange aerial and underwater objects frequently reported and videoed by pilots and tracked by sensors are real, unexplained, and pose a genuine national security concern.

Compelled to investigate, Coulthart has embarked on what’s become the most confronting and challenging story of his career, speaking to witnesses, researchers, scientists, spies and defence and intelligence officials and insiders. What he has found suggests that the world is on the cusp of extraordinary technological breakthroughs and cultural revelations.

Bizarre, sometimes mind blowing and utterly fascinating, In Plain Sight tells a story that’s largely escaped the radar of mainstream media coverage but has been there, in plain sight, all along. It’s time to observe what’s in front of our eyes.
