1977’s Alien Message To Humanity

UFO message from Ashtar Galactic Command that occurred on November 26th, 1977, during The News On ITN.  This video Is not meant to suggest any belief in UFOs or Extraterrestrials.  It is still a mystery whether it was real or a hoax.  If it was a hoax, someone wasted a lot of resources and knowledge to pull off this hoax, and for what reason?  What could anyone hope to gain from pulling off a hoax such as this?

On Saturday, November 26, 1977 at 5:10 pm in the United Kingdom, a mysterious voice who called himself “Vrillon of the Ashtar Galactic Command” performed an illegal broadcast on live television during the height of an evening news program.

The illegal broadcast was investigated by UK authorities who were unable to determine the source of the signal or who might have sent it.  It is assumed that the broadcast was a hoax perpetrated by someone who sent a signal powerful enough to override the station’s VHF transmitters, but in the past 33 years, no one has ever claimed responsibility for the hijack.

It would later be confirmed that five major transmitters were hijacked simultaneously, a rather spectacular feat at the time that would have required considerable transmitting power and a coordinated terrestrial effort.

The event caused panic in some parts of the local population for people who believed that the transmission was actually coming from an alien civilization.

Because this incident occurred over 33 years ago, it has all but faded from the memory of most people and remains primarily of interest to ham radio enthusiasts and those who study UFO history.
