UFO – a warning of earthquakes


UFO Digest recently covered the following intriguing issue.

Sixteen UFO Cases Reported on Earthquake Night in Chile


Over in Britain North West UFO Research (NWUR) founder and author, Pat Regan, had also followed a parallel situation back in 2009.

In view of the recent activity in Chile, the following data is well worth exploring once again.

Did Cumbrian UFOs warn of impending Lake District Earthquake?

North West UFO Research

April 2009, update


Was recent UFO activity connected with the Cumbrian earthquake?

Are UFO’s harbingers of disaster?

North West UFO Research (NWUR) was inundated with reports from the Cumbria regain since 2009 started. We reported on the situation with various well-recorded witness statements and a few photos to give evidence of such unusual events. All this was most extraordinary because not long ago some researchers had claimed that UFO sightings in the region had virtually dried up.

On Tuesday 28th April a 3.7 magnitude earth tremor hit Cumbria, which was centred on Ulverston; the reports starting coming in soon after 11.00 am.

TV reports also stated that the earthquake was felt in Lancaster, Fleetwood and other areas within Lancashire.

The British Geological Survey established that the quake hit three miles south-east of Ulverston and five miles underground at 11.22am.

Were we warned about this earthquake?

North West UFO Research Founder and author of UFO: The Search for Truth, Pat Regan, stated:

“I was initially alerted to this situation by Coast Guard Officer, Mr Paul Harrison. One thing that instantly sprung to my mind was a possible connection between the earthquake and the large spate of UFO sightings that we have recently dealt with. Did the strange balls of light, seen by numerous witnesses, have any possible link to the tremor? Many people have been asking me what the balls of light seen in Cumbrian could be and NWUR have reported on this in great detail.”

Pat continued:

“There have indeed been examples around the world when similarly abnormal lights in the sky have been seen before or during earthquakes. One theory posed by experts is that such phenomena occur when rock structures under great stress release gas. At such times electromagnetic waves with radioactive gasses escape and ionize the air, which in turn create odd lights. Another speculation is that the UFOs seen before earthquakes are entities of an extraterrestrial nature or from the spiritual realm, which have arrived to either monitor the worsening geological situation or possibly warn us of the impending danger to come. The truth of the matter is that we currently do not know precisely what is happening. I must in all fairness however add one thing. The witnesses I have spoken to have at times been clearly shaken by their experiences. Some have been convinced that the balls of light they have seen have been guided as if under ‘intelligent’ control. I still feel that the old WW11 Foo-fighters (strange balls of light that pursued aircraft and scared many fighter pilots) accounts sound very similar to what Cumbrian people have reported seeing this year.”

Such claims may not be as fanciful as they appear to some more sceptical minds.

Many people from the Tsunami and earthquake hit areas reported witnessing weird Unidentified Flying Objects a few days before the mega quake and Tsunami.

People in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, Andaman and Nicobar Island as well as many in Indonesia were reporting for some time about extraordinary flying objects spotted in the sky. This is extremely similar to the reports NWUR have recorded from Cumbria.

Moreover, some UFO researchers at that time were speculating about the possibility that these UFOs were trying to communicate a warning of the forthcoming Tsunami disaster. Was this the case for Cumbria too?

UFOs do in fact seem to hover around the epicentre of catastrophes. Do they sense these coming natural disasters? Some believe that they try and communicate with humanity to warn. Some even suppose that these UFOs replicate natural disasters in the earth.

Perhaps the MoD could expand of this axis. However, we feel that, judging by their previous lethargy over the UFO situation, they will probably not be overly concerned to properly investigate any feasible link between Cumbria’s many UFO sighting, which we have reported on, and the recent tremor.

This story was also picked up by other news sources:


NWUR suggest that immediate geological studies are undertaken in the Cumbrian region, if not already underway, by the authorities. We also request that the UK media take up the banner and help us to establish the causes behind this axis.

Incidentally,Mr Dave Pavoni,UFO Hunters TV show producer from the States had contacted Pat Regan at that time and mentioned the phenomena of “Earthquake Lights.”

An earthquake light is an extraordinary luminous airborne phenomenon, comparable in appearance to the aurora borealis that supposedly appears in the sky at or near areas of tectonic stress, seismic activity or volcanic eruptions. There may be some relevance to Dave’s suggestion, yet not all Cumbrian sightings would seem to match this category of phenomena. Earthquake lights have been seen weeks before or after earthquakes and hundreds of miles from the epicenter. 

Whichever way we cut it, UFOs and earthquakes do appear to at times go hand in hand.

The actual reason for this link is however open to further conjecture and research.
