Just over a year ago, the UFO community mourned the loss of retired Air Force sergeant Karl Wolfe who claimed to have inspected photographs from the far side of the moon that showed alien structures while serving at Langley Air Force Base in 1965.
On October 10, 2018, Wolfe (74) was riding his bicycle when he was struck and killed by a tractor-trailer in Lansing, New York. Tompkins County deputies said the former U.S. airman was traveling southbound on the southbound shoulder of North Triphammer Road near Sharon Drive when the big rig, traveling south, ended his life.
Bangs Ambulance transported Wolfe to Cayuga Medical Center where he later died from injuries sustained in the crash. Police launched an official investigation into the accident but filed no charges against the driver, suggesting that no vehicular manslaughter occurred due to gross negligence, drunk driving, reckless driving or speeding.
Wolfe served in the U.S. Air Force, attended the University at Buffalo with a dual major in electronics engineering and social and cultural anthropology. He later earned a Ph.D. in Philosophy of Religion and dedicated himself to changing the lives of others through his spiritual and transformational work for the benefit of mankind.
According to Wolfe’s website, for over 25 years, he combined “the objectivity of a trained scientist with a mystic’s passionate search for deeper understanding. His work is an integration of his life as a scientist, mystic, and a modern-day shaman; in an age of high technology and super-science.”
Wolfe testified for the Sirius Disclosure Project, founded by renowned ufologist Dr. Steven Greer. The Disclosure Project Executive Summary summarized the veteran’s insider information given in September 2000:
“Karl Wolfe was in the Air Force for 4-1/2 years beginning in January 1964. He had top-secret crypto [security] clearance and worked with the tactical air command at Langley AFB in Virginia. While working at an NSA facility he was shown photographs taken by the Lunar Orbiter of the moon that showed detailed artificial structures. These photos were taken prior to the Apollo landing in 1969.”
Wolfe, who worked with the 44th Reconnaissance Technical Group at Langley, revealed what he knew in 2001 after Greer released the project’s testimonial evidence at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The former airman said that he was escorted into a dark room where photographs from NASA’s Lunar Orbiter were being developed and stitched together into composite images called “mosaics.”
“They were doing 35 mm strips of film at the time which were then assembled into 18 ½” x 11” mosaics. Those strips were from successive passes around the moon and they would build up a photograph.”
Continuing, Wolfe stated:
“We walked over to one side of the lab and he said, ‘By the way, we’ve discovered a base on the backside of the moon.'”
The young military man had a visceral reaction to this stunning news:
“At that point I became terrified, thinking to myself that if anybody walks into the room I know we’d be in jeopardy because he’s giving me information he shouldn’t. Then he pulled out one of these mosaics and showed this base which had geometric shapes, there were towers, spherical buildings – they were very tall towers and things that looked somewhat like radar dishes, but they were large structures.”
In January 1965, Wolfe was stationed helped start up a new facility dedicated to facilitating the escalation of the Vietnam War. He worked mainly on machines that processed surveillance footage of Vietnam. The electronics technician repaired photographs.
Sometime around June or July 1965, Wolfe’s boss, Staff Sergeant Taylor, told him to report to an NSA (National Security Agency) facility on the base to help with a technical problem with equipment used to process imagery from the first lunar orbiter mission to target the first landing sites.
Wolfe said the faulty contact printer would have to be removed from the photographic darkroom into a lighted area to be diagnosed and repaired. While others moved the dormitory-refrigerator-sized, Wolfe was left alone in the darkroom with a fellow Airman 2nd Class.
The curious Wolfe wanted to know how the lab received images from the lunar orbiter. After explaining the technical details, his cohort dropped the bombshell, “By the way, we’ve discovered a base on the backside of the moon,” to which the astonished Wolfe replied:
The other airman never said the far-side moon structures were built by extraterrestrials but Wolfe sensed that was the case:
“Bending down under the red glowing lamp, he [Wolfe] was seeing what so very few would see. He could clearly make out geometric shapes, well organized, and well designed. Most noticeable to him were what looked exactly like radar antennas, very similar to what one could see on Earth.”
Although many might claim that Wolfe was the victim of his age rather than foul play, it is an odd synchronicity that Sergeant Major Robert “Bob” Dean, another member of the Tactical Air Command at Langley AFB during the 1960s and UFO Truther, died on October 11, 2018, at age 89 – the day after Wolfe was struck down in highway traffic.
Like Wolfe, retired U.S. Army Command Sergeant Major Dean had testified before Greer’s Disclosure Project. While serving his country, he read a document called “UFO Assessment: An Evaluation of a Possible Threat” while stationed at Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE).
Although Dean never produced proof of the existence of this document, the credible witness insisted that it was real and contained details of sightings, alien encounters, and autopsies of alien bodies.
Dean claimed the UFO research was approved by NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) and indicated that four human-looking alien species lived on Earth and were secretly interacting with us.
