Dennett’s fieldwork spanning three decades makes him an expert on a special category of UFOs called Unidentified Submerged Objects (USO). He is widely recognized as an authority in this field, having published articles in Destiny Magazine, Atlantis Rising, Mysteries Magazine, UFO Magazine, and MUFON’s UFO Magazine.
His interest in UFOs and related paranormal phenomena dates back to 1986 when some close relatives, friends and co-workers in California reported strange encounters that no one could explain. He started interviewing people and was shocked to discover that hundreds of people in his locality had also experienced UFO sightings and related strange paranormal phenomena.
After several media appearances he began to receive reports from witnesses who had previously never spoken about their experiences. Massive feedback from readers and viewers led him to conduct even more extensive investigations. And after interviewing hundreds of new witnesses and accumulating a impressive mass of evidence he realized that the California South Coast was arguably the most active area in the world for submarine UFO or USO activity.
It also presents evidence of the government’s cover-up of information about the underwater UFO base.
After he began to investigate UFOs in 1986, he found several witnesses who reported seeing UFOs flying out to sea and some flying to the shore of the sea. A disproportionate number of the reports came from the coast of California, from Santa Barbara on California’s Central Coast to Long Beach in Los Angeles County, Southern California. Since the 1940s, the region has acquired a reputation as the region with the most UFO sightings, with hundreds of reported sightings of UFOs flying over the ocean and USOs going underwater.
According to Dennett, the June 14, 1992, sightings in Topanga Canyon, California, during which hundreds of independent witnesses reported seeing hundreds of mysterious UFO objects in the Santa Monica Mountains, appear to have triggered a massive wave of new reports that included sightings of strange flying metallic objects, mysterious lights, OSU, abductions and reports of encounters with alien beings.
On one particularly busy day over 200 craft were seen in one night.
The sightings involved a wide range of people, including beachgoers, surfers, fishermen, sailors and military personnel. Many have reported sighting squadrons of cigar-shaped UFOs, orbs and saucer-shaped UFOs performing complex maneuvers in broad daylight.
One case involved a crowd in Redondo Beach, Los Angeles County who reported seeing a large glowing UFO that landed in the water. And in the presence of the crowd, including a night watchman, lifeguards, and the police, he sank into the water beneath the waves.
Other fishermen cases involved sailors and Navy personnel who reported that their boats were hitting or nearly hit by mysterious USOs first mistaken for Russian submarines. But the subsequent detailed description of the attacking objects raised doubts. Witnesses often noticed the objects moved at very high speed and lacked a wake and sound.
“The high speed, the lack of wake and sound and the enormous swell make this object suspicious.”
