Discovery’s press release for Uncovering Aliens states:

Across America, there are more UFO sightings than ever before. 6 million Americans believe they’ve had an actual physical encounter with an extra-terrestrial. What lies behind this increasing number of reports? Are these UFOs actually extra-terrestrial craft? And [does] our government know more than they are letting on? A team of four professional UFO investigators has come together to investigate the phenomena. They are traveling across America in [an] attempt to hunt down the truth. This is no ordinary group of investigators. They bring a broad range of skills and experience to the subject to maximize their chance of success. From aeronautics engineering to personal abduction experience this team is unified by one common goal: to uncover the truth behind the growing claims that extra-terrestrial life exists here on planet earth.

The show’s team of investigators is comprised of Derrel Sims, Mike Bara, Maureen Elsberry, and Steven Jones.

Here is a description of the episode premiering on December 15:

The alien investigators head to UFO hotspot Sedona, Arizona. Local residents have reported seeing UFOs and military aircraft flying together in the skies above their town. An ex-Senator claims the government is using alien technology and a local photographer shows them authenticated pictures of UFOs. As they head to government owned Bradshaw Ranch to check out reports of UFO and Military activity, their suspicion of a military cover up deepens when a Black Ops helicopter buzzes them. The investigators stake out the ranch at night and witness UFOs in the sky. Finally the investigators interview an ex-aerospace engineer. He reveals leaked top secret documents that he claims are evidence that the government is analyzing crashed UFOs at secret bases across America, and that Bradshaw ranch could be one such base.

This episode is scheduled to air Sunday, December 15 on Animal Planet at 11:00 p.m. Eastern, but check your local listings.

  1. One investigator made a comment on not being able to see numbers on the Black Hawk helicopter. I see military helicopters day-in and day-out. Unless you are relatively close, you cannot see the markings…and that is with dark green helicopter.
    Near the end of the program, the Dr. had papers that claimed that the government reverse engineered crashed UFO’s. Transistors would not be the technology being used by travelers moving light years through space. Think about it. We are beyond transistors now and still cannot travel light years through space.
    If aliens were so advanced, why would they need lights on their spacecraft?
    I do believe in life in other worlds, however some things do not make full sense.

  2. The copter was such garbage CGI. I could have done a better job! I have a degree in this field of study. The copter was too even with it’s overall color and shade. There would be dimension to the copter if it were real. This is caused by the outside light, movement of the craft, and reflected light. It’s no surprise that the camera gets unfocused and shaky when the camera person gets a closer shot. C’mon people! Professional camera operators have cameras that can adjust to different situations in seconds. You’d think animal planet would have a high shutter speed cam ready to roll. The copter also looked as if it were traveling on a fixed path rather than fluid like a vessel traveling of it’s own free will in a three dimensional world. This is total slop being fed to the vast majority who are being tricked into believing this muck. It makes me sick.

  3. Not to mention, in all moving conditions, any professional camera person would be using a steadycam counterweight to compensate for shakiness during zooms. There are too many errors here to believe this. These things are done deliberately to distract the viewer from getting a good look at the subject in focus.

  4. I live in Sedona and have witnessed strange occurrences in the sky. I’m not saying that they are UFO’s but I did go out and purchase a better digital camera so if I see them again I will have photographic proof. If you know the terrain of this area you have to wonder why military helicopters fly over this area on a regular basis.

  5. Total fabrication. The Navajo Army Depot is right over the hill a few miles SW of Flagstaff. It is used regularly by Communications units from Ft Huachuca who fly into the Navajo Depot to complete field training and other units in the Southwest.

    All military craft have been painted with radar absorbing none reflective paint for decades. There have not been big numbers on craft that can be seen from the ground since the advent of Spy Satellites. Dah!

    Local ranchers started the whole UFO thing in the 60’s and 70’s to make extra $ from hippies who would rent beds in their bunk house. The local chamber of commerce still actively promotes UFO’s, New Age and paranormal for tourism. Sedona is just a classier version of Rosewell but where produces would rather hang in a nice hotel and spa.

    The Bradshaw ranch is only 90 acres and is fully accessible for hunting hiking, etc. Road access is closed to protect pictographs from theft. . . a big problem in the area. Yes, they use jack hammers to remove huge slabs of rock in the middle of the night. A good slab with images can fetch tens of thousands on the black market.

    This is the worst kind of fabricated-cheap-reality TV presented as if it has some factual basis. This trend in programming, without at least a disclaimer from the broadcasting network, is in my estimation irresponsible. Too many believe if it’s on TV, it must be true.

    And yes, Bigfoot thrives in Oak Creek near Sedona, the space ship will depart from Bell Rock on time next Sunday and the cosmic vortex on Airport Drive will heal your terminal disease.

  6. This entire series of the first 1-4 episodes I saw that have aired to date (June 2014) is one notch above foaming at the mouth and a padded cell. It is drivel. Warning: anyone that associates themselves to be broadcast on this total bogus crap is a FOOL and near idiot. Every “investigation” (NOT) was such a total waste of time with ZERO critical review and worthless explanation for each instance highlighted that it is shameful this trash can air anywhere on TV.

    I’ve personally seen 2 different (saucer boomerang) UFO’s and have also had sleep paralysis with the “evil presence” and “imagery” that was “terrifying” to experience… none of this has anything to do with ET or abduction, etc.

    Showing any kind of lights at night or camera or lens optic ball/streak artifacts of light distortions is TRASH drivel. And, relating anything near sleep or nighttime altered-state including driving hypnotic effects (with possible alcohol/drug or seizure or medical pass-out) episodes as UFO and/or abduction related is also completely INSANE.


  7. My own post just above is too harsh and critical in its writing style. I did not mean to be so mean spirited. I guess I have gotten too frustrated with these types of reality-tv UFO hunter chases that just seem beyond ridiculous and time wasting. Please accept my apologies for the rude post.

  8. A. There is no way to know if the UH-60 was black ops. The majority of US Army Helos are painted with a special green paint and black markings. If it is Spec/black ops it will be a MH helo. Not a UH. There are a lot of things in the show which are not accurate.

  9. After four eps of “Uncovering aliens” shouldn’t at least ONE alien have been uncovered?? I didn’t see one.

    This show is garbage but I hope it’s renewed because the more time Mike Bara spends on this the less time he has to write his appalling error-filled books. Those books are an atrocious disservice to the publishing industry and a travesty of the truth.

  10. Hmmm. Im not much of a believer but i saw stars or something move like that make triangular shapes i was just sitting in the pool at night best time to go swimming so quiet and peaceful but i was sitting looking up at the sky enjoying the view then i saw the stars move and they started forming triangles i think there was atleast….. 8 triangles moving in groups and well i didnt care just watch them move then they stoped moving and then they spread apart but i just started swimming went home and well… never mention it.

  11. Why do all ufo researchers stick to the extraterrestrial threat as being from other planets. The so called aliens are not from space they are from earth. If you read and study scriptures and religions from around the world you will find the fallen angel and the nephilim stories. When God kicked Lucifer or satan out of heaven (who was in charge of numerous galaxies) they came here stripped of their galactic powers but still having spiritual powers assigned to them by God. Once they came here along with other fallen angels they cohabitated with humans and took themselves human female mates. These are the nephilim. Otherwise known as the giants in almost all religions on earth. The denial of this is just amazing. If you follow the spiritual story of what is going on it will all fall into place. The pure gene of humans became severely damaged after many generations of the off spring of humans and fallen angels otherwise known as evil spirits. God ccreated the great flood which has been proven many times over . This killed almost all of the evil here on earth except some of those from the original departure from heaven which was satan and his goons.
    Before the great flood you had the so called gods of Greek methology and of other cultures throughout the earth.
    Satan is on a mission here on earth to affect the purity of the human gene which he created to inhabit the earth.
    The devil or satan and his cronies are on a mission to again affect the purity of the human gene through manipulation and hybrid breeding which is where the abductions come from.
    Evil spirits and/or fallen angels are attempting to alter the human gene of humans which will prevent the human from everlasting life due to his infected soul or the purity of the human soul.
    Evil spirits take on many forms like aliens and extraterrestrials they fly in crafts and work and live underground and in and under water.
    There is a lot of parts to this story that all fall into place if you read. Humans/media/ and liberal scientists will always try to sway you away from God only because they are nothing more than pains of the evil spirits that sway their beliefs and want you to believe this elaborate and intriguing story of these aliens coming from these cool planets to help us here on earth. These interplanetary beings are evil and may or may also be capable of living in different dimensions.
    These are not good. They will act and blow you away with healing sand amazing feats on earth for mankind making you think they are our saving grace when in fact they here to pull you away from our one and true God and his son so that you will turn over your soul to this amazing alien life form who will. Ring with them a hybrid human who will be the ruler of the one world order. Arch angels are spiritual beings that were created by God and are in charge of different areas of the universe. We have a real battle on our hands and it’s within us humans. Aliens are fallen angels or evil spirits. These names were assigned to those angels who were kicked out of heaven to live on earth as evil spirits to do the evil work of the fallen arch angel lucifer or satan.
    Stand tall humans and destroy evil in its tracks. If you are confronted by any evil spirits or so called demons you can destroy their mission by announcing God as your savior tell them directly to be gone by the order of the Holy Spirit of God. Say this over and over and you will physically see their minds start to shake and pulsate and then become totally confused in what they are trying to do . Get off you stupid alien kick and. Ring the Bible and the book of Enoch and Genisis and Revelation into these stories and they will make much more sense. Now really think about it. If these were true aliens or beings from other planets they would not be messing around doing all these little genetic manipulation and hybrid breeding and hybrid surgeries on a and on. They would just take over only because they are not aliens from other planets. They are committed to earth by God and it will be here on earth where they do their dirty deeds to win over God’s greatest creation and that is man himself. They can’t really leave but may be able to perform travel in our stratsphere. This is why they can’t just take over earth. They have to win over humans and destroy our genetic spiritual being to defeat God and rule over earth. You think this story is far fetched then just take a minute and think about what you are currently watching and believing on these stupid alien shows and hearing about aliens and genetic hybrid manipulation, etc.

  12. But hey! Why do not you use small radio controlled helicopter with camera transmitter so you have not gone into forbidden territory?

    But so clever were not they.

  13. I need someone to hear my story. I reached out to others and got no response. I have been used as a alien experiment for almost 40 years. it started when I was attending FSU. I remember their ships triangular shape, symbols, race, and origin(Sirus B). They came to my home in November and December 2015 and had me and my family under their control. They sliped up and I discovered that they can time travel. I haven’t told you everything I know. Wouldn’t you want to hear more? Don’t be like the others and have some balls.
