This is a
list of alleged sightings of unidentified flying objects or
UFOs in Iran.
- The 1976 Tehran UFO Incident was a radar and visual sighting of
an unidentified flying object (UFO) over Tehran, the capital of
Iran. The incident is particularly notable for the electromagnetic
interference effects on aircraft near the UFO. Two F-4 jet
interceptors independently lost instrumentation and communications
as they approached, only to have these restored when they left. One
F-4 also lost its weapons systems when it was about to fire on the
object. The incident is well-documented in a U.S. Defense
Intelligence Agency (DIA) report with a distribution list that
included the White House, Secretary of State, Joint Chiefs of
Staff, National Security Agency (NSA), and Central Intelligence
Agency (CIA). Various high ranking Iranian military officers
directly involved with the events have also gone on public record
stating their belief the object was an extraterrestrial craft.
at night of summer 1982 in isfahan, a big reflection of an object
(UFO?) saw by thousands of people in sky.
- In April, of 2004, a mass UFO sighting
(known as the 2004 Iran UFO sighting) occurred between April 12-21.
The UFO's were sighted by thousands of people and one was filmed by
Iranian TV. It is unclear if the objects sighted were UFOs or if
they were surveillance
aircraft or the planet Venus. Many photos
of UFOs in Iran surfaced shortly during the UFO sighting. Many of
the photos were deemed unknown by some UFO groups but written off
as either hoaxes , conventional aircraft or the planet Venus.
- Eyewitnesses told the Fars News Agency (FNA) that a radiant
UFO had crashed in the Barez Mounts of Kerman on Wednesday
morning. Abulghassem Nasrollahi, the Deputy General of
the Kerman province in
Iran told the news agency that all the aircraft in the
area had been accounted for, but did not rule out the possibility
that the object could be a meteor. Another source also told
the FNA that the object was on fire with thick smoke coming from
it, and claimed that this implied the object was not a meteor.
However, meteors appear as bright fireballs in the sky, as they are
heated to high temperatures due largely to ram pressure as they fall at high speeds
through the Earth's atmosphere. Meteors often burn up completely
before reaching the ground and some leave a smoke-like trail in
their wake. Abulghassem noted that a few days earlier, in
Rafsanjan, a similar incident was reported by
Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps claims it has shot down a
UFO over the Persian Gulf.
