              In Plain Sight: An investigation into UFOs and impossible science (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              An award-winning journalist investigates a story largely ignored by mainstream media but is right there, in front of our eyes Investigative journalist Ross Coulthart has been intrigued by UFOs since mysterious glowing lights were reported near New Zealand's Kaikoura mountain rang...es when he was a teenager. The 1978 Kaikoura sighting is just one of thousands described around the world since the 1940s, and yet research into UFOs has traditionally been seen as the realm of crackpots and conspiracy theorists. Then, in 2020, after decades of denial, the US Department of Defence made the astonishing admission that strange aerial and underwater objects frequently reported and videoed by pilots and tracked by sensors are real, unexplained and pose a genuine national security concern. Coulthart felt compelled to investigate, embarking on what has become the most confronting and challenging story of his career. Now the five-time Walkley Award winner presents his findings. Coulthart has spoken to witnesses, researchers, scientists, spies and defence and intelligence officials and insiders. Many are convinced we are not alone, while some have been investigating and utilising what appear to be extraordinary potential new technologies, including radical propulsion systems, leaving Coulthart convinced that the world is on the cusp of extraordinary technological breakthroughs and cultural revelations. Bizarre, sometimes mind blowing and always utterly fascinating, In Plain Sight uncovers a story that has largely escaped the radar of mainstream media coverage. And yet, as Coulthart argues, it's a story that's been there all along. Now it's time to see what's right in front of our eyes.
