It is time for the truth to be brought out... Behind the scenes high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about the UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense. I urge immediate Congressional action to reduce the dangers from secrecy about unidentified flying objects. Former CIA Director Vice Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter, signed statement to Congress, August 22, 1960. Thanks to Close Encounters.

A CLEAR THREAT TO THE UNITED STATES AND THE WORLD:

Editors Note: As a former Intelligence officer I agree whole heartedly with Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter that there is good evidence to believe there may be a threat and danger to the security of the United States and the safety of our aircraft. Several astronauts, military officers, airline pilots, and I stand ready to brief concerning this threat. Last weekend, I participated in the Mid Atlantic MUFON Symposium in Bethesda, Maryland with a group of outstanding speakers, who outlined some of the dangers. Rob Swiatek a knowledgeable Ufologist spoke concerning numerous UFO sightings around the country. He played a tape of the near collision of a UFO with a Swiss Airline’ 747 aircraft over New York on August 9, 1997. Interestingly, our government refused to cooperate with Swiss Airlines personnel concerning an investigation. Linda Moulton Howe informed us that several Air Force offiacers had told her that our ICBMs at Maelstrom Air Force Base were knocked off line by UFO penetrations. A detailed account is in her new book Glimpses of Other Realities Vol. 2. Dr. David Jacob's of Temple University told of his 700 interviews with persons who believe they are abductees. Jacob's new book, The Threat should be read by everyone in authority in our country.

I briefed on the Roger Moore TV Special, The KGB Secret Files and UFOs that clearly indicate that UFOs were a threat to Soviet Defenses The Soviets have film of a downed UFO and have lost aircraft and radar installations to alien attacks, that will be shown on TNT. I also discussed the mysterious disappearance of a Lear Jet making an approach into Lebanon, NH on Christmas Eve 1996, after a huge UFO had been observed in the area. I also spoke about other sightings along our East coast with emphasis on Georgia sightings. Dr. Bruce Maccabee, a Navy physicist showed high quality videos of UFOs over Arizona and Mexico. His book is UFOs Are Real- Here’s the Proof. Dr. Charles Emmons of Gettysburg College and sociologist Robert Hall an abductee researcher also talked about the threat. We laughed among ourselves calling this Fright Night! We might be wrong, but as I sit here holding my grandson, I feel it is time to examine the evidence for the sake of future generations.

Congressional and Presidential inquiries concerning UFOs are continually answered by the military and intelligence agencies in the negative. Congress has now cut our defenses by a third since Desert Storm. Yet, an alien threat is apparently increasing. During my inquiries to Air Force personnel I'm told they stopped investigating UFOs, because the Condon Committee told them their was no threat. It turns out that based on a study by Dr. Michael Swords, 14 of the 16 scientists actually recommended further research, but Dr. Edward Condon indicated no further study was needed. Essentially only his conclusion was followed by the Air Force. I consider the lack of interest by our government to be similar to the days before Pearl Harbor. Many warnings of Japanese intent, but our nation slept because they could not believe a foreign power would attack. I ask is there any military leader or congressman with the courage of former Congressman and President Gerald Ford who asked for hearings in 1966? The majority of Americans who believe in UFOs would be very grateful.

Are there any newsmen who care about the safety of hundreds of people in a Swiss Airline 747 who came within a few feet of a collision with a UFO over New York on August 9, 1997? I guess Washington gossip is more interesting than investigating the Swiss Airline story? There is one patriot in the news media who cares and I salute her. Sarah McClendon, 88, year old Grand Old White House Correspondent was astute enough to attend the symposium. She told me it was an excellent symposium and talk. She recently published an article supporting UFO Congressional Hearings. (See Filer’s Files #14) I encourage all who have friends in high places to contact them and to ask they investigate with an open mind. Further I ask the Air Force to look at their Fast Walker data, Space shuttle and satellite photography for these craft.

If Dr. Jacob's is right our lives, our country and our world may be at stake! I feel there is definitely unknown aircraft in our skies that are causing a safety hazard and danger. There also seems to be some type of contact with alien life forms by sincere, honest and frightened people. President Clinton, Anthony Lake, even Science Advisor Gibbons have inquired and got a no from CIA and DIA. I was one of the few who predicted the Tet offensive. I operate with no funds and can find five good sightings a week from respected people. We have a $30 billion Black Budget, I suggest that all suspicious evidence be sent to a central location for correlation. The data is there, but intelligence collection requirements need to be put in place and the data has to be correlated. I'm told Russian satellites are picking up evidence. Our satellites may have to be reconfigured. I ask were any of our Black Budget aircraft hovering for 30 minutes over Mullica Hill, NJ on May 7, or Santos, Brazil for 40 minutes on March 30?

NEW JERSEY

On May 7, a ten year old boy and an eight year old girl report seeing a UFO above their home in Mullica Hill, NJ. They described the craft has much larger than their house and hovering above their home, where their mother was sleeping. The boy claims to have observed craft previously, and is always searching for them. Just before he entered his home, he looked up and was pointing at the craft. The older sister had always thought the younger brother was making up stories. She looked up to see what he was viewing and exclaimed, "Oh my God!" They could both see a UFO and an alien hovering above the house. The alien stared back at them scaring them, and they ran into the house yelling for their dad. They ran back out and although the alien was no longer discernible there was a UFO still hovering above the house. They yelled, "A space ship is above our house!" The mother tried to get up, but was very sleepy and had difficulty waking so she did not see the craft. When she completely awakened, the mother listened to the children's story and told each to go to their own room and draw exactly what they had observed. Both the children drew a picture of the alien and the UFO. The drawings by the two children matched in most details. Their home is located ten miles south of the Philadelphia Airport and aircraft often over fly their home but this night there was a low hanging cloud cover. Many other strange lights have been reported in recent weeks, that do not match the normal aircraft light patterns. In recent weeks craft have been observed on several occasions by neighbors and people living in the vicinity. The UFO was giant and was at least 200 to 300 feet in diameter. Little small craft were shooting out of it. Hundreds of smaller disc shaped objects came out of the craft at a high rate of speed. A women in the also neighborhood also saw the craft. The mother asked the neighbor what was that thing? The neighbor explained "I don't know, but I'm getting in the house." She was apparently afraid of the UFO and had seen something. There was also a groups of boys who also seemed to be looking toward the craft. They watched for 20 to 30 minutes. There was talk around the development about this thing in the sky. She has a large field beside her house. She has an expensive alarm system that regularly goes off. The police have come many times because of the alarm. Little kernels similar to rice was spread all over kitchen. About a year ago the police were called and found footprints the size of a child outside the house but nothing of value taken from the home.

Raritan, Myth Roan reports she went out on Tuesday, May 28, 1998, to do some errands and was headed back home to relax. I was driving through part of Raritan from Princeton. While driving down one street through Raritan, just after crossing over Route 202, I started looking up at the sky. It was a crisp blue with some large and cottony clouds floating around, large and longish clouds. They weren't very tall, mostly flat with a few lumps and bumps. In no way did they look like storm clouds; the clouds were very white. As I looked at one almost directly in front of me, I saw a brilliant silver shape dart along straight into that cloud close to its left-hand end. The object was smallish and from what I saw seemed to be an orb. I remember thinking, Hmmm. Would a plane move like that? Would a plane look like that? I kept looking up at that particular cloud, as much as I could without driving off the road. Nothing happened for a bit. I never did see anything come back out of the cloud. I looked at the clock in the car. It was 12:34 p.m. As I drove closer to the back roads along the Duke Estate, I looked up again at one point, and saw a small Cessna-like plane moving along. It wasn't silvery at all, quite dark against the bright blue of the sky as a matter of fact. As it approached that same cloud, I saw another silver orb dart into the cloud close to its right-hand end. I think I had my first daylight UFO sighting! Thanks to Myth Roan and Bob Long.

NORTH CAROLINA

Stacey Buchanan reports seeing an oblong ovular object hovering about 100-150 feet off the ground. Sylva on May 9, 1998. It had what appeared to have a hole through the middle of it that was possibly arcing electricity across it. At 11:30 PM it took off slightly above the trees and with a flash of blue light. It took off from a slow start to instant high speeds. Thanks to ISUR Sighting Report.

GEORGIA

ISUR Sighting Report from John Thompson. 7/78, 9:00 p.m. E.T. states, "I was cleaning our pool during a warm summer Friday and saw a white, luminous object over my house. I had the pool lights on so at first I thought it was light reflection. Then I noticed motion. I ran to the back door to tell my family to come and see it. My wife came out in time to see the UFO that was right above us. It had a metallic body and a diameter of some 75 feet. We could see a front window like a cabin area, but the glass angled outwards and upwards. It had portholes on its sides. Light emanated from the front window in an orange, blue tone. The object made no noise at all. It moved at 20 MPH, but angled down at a 45 degree angle as it was looking at us all while at the same moving very slow. The top was smooth but had a dome. It was almost no different from a picture you see on television or movies except the frontside (where we saw light inside) had angled and curved sides around the front window. I can remember thing, what a beautiful craft it was. It then continued on a southeast direction. The whole episode had lasted approximately 60-90 seconds. I climbed a wall to continue seeing, since houses were now beginning to block the view. I saw it continue to move in a straight line. The altitude we saw it was no more than 100 feet. It seemed to stay at that altitude as it continued to move until I could no longer see it. I told my wife not to discuss it but to go inside the house and draw what she saw as I would then we could discuss it. We did and there was no disagreement. My background is group propulsion systems and working for a computer company most of my life. I think I saw beings wearing dark clothing that seemed to be looking at us. We can never forget the experience. We saw details being closer than most observers. Thanks to John Thompson/ISUR Sighting and mail@home.com

FLORIDA

Tonight at 8:52 PM, May 12, 1998, Judy and I had a sighting at Shoreline Park South in Gulf Breeze, Florida. The object was a little bigger than the street lights on the toll bridge, south east moving to the north. It was an orangish-red amber in color. First time the light popped in was between the Holiday Inn on the Beach and the Comfort Inn. Elevation was between 10 and 15 degrees. The light went out and returned three times to the right of the Comfort Inn and twice to the left of the Comfort Inn. The object (light) was visible from one to three seconds during each interval of visibility. Total time of the multiple sightings was less than two minutes. No sound was heard during the sightings. In addition to myself, (Pat Gerbig), Judy Francoeur was also present with me. At a table farther down from where we were located were also three other witnesses. Thanks to Pat Gerbig.

COLORADO

Marcia King writes: "I've been reading your postings on the MUFON page. My husband and daughter saw something in Colorado, last summer. It could only be a UFO. I'm truly a believer and have been for a couple years. I have a friend who is graduating as an anthropologist who strongly is suspicious that alien involvement is responsible for the sudden jump in progress of "human development." I've read some other books (Zecharia Sitchin) which are so carefully researched, I don't see how they can be ignored. I have a child with a congenital difference caused by a supposed "spontaneous genetic alteration" Yet I find it difficult to believe that this condition that results in the change of one letter in the sequence of billions in the gene sequence, could happen repeatedly at the rate of 1:20,000 merely by spontaneous, random chance. There are other characteristics occurring with this condition that I'm suspicious occur at a higher incidence than would otherwise if it were all merely random. (higher intelligence as one). How many astronomers, geneticists, anthropologists, physicists are seriously considering this universal solution to all the questions they face? I would love to find other professionals that share these beliefs. Thanks to Marcia King king@netonecom.net

CALIFORNIA MYSTERIOUS GREEN LIGHTS

On Monday, May 4, 1998, around 11:30 p.m., residents of Half Moon Bay and El Granada, California spotted three mysterious green lights hovering just offshore. Half Moon Bay (population 8,886) and El Granada (population 4,426) are on Highway 1 about 60 miles (96 kilometers) south of San Francisco. Reports were also received from two or three residents living on Skyline Boulevard, north of Redwood City. According to Larry Hatch, "observers" on a tugboat in Half Moon Bay "also saw the lights for 30 minutes. The tugboat operator described them as green 'stoplights' or traffic lights. He also said they were arranged in a straight vertical row. Many thanks to Larry Hatch and Errol Bruce-Knapp and UFO Roundup Vol. 3, #19, May 10, 1998 Editor: Joseph Trainor

OREGON UFO

On Friday, May 1, 1998, at 4:21 p.m., Wayne R. of Harper, sighted "a 4-to-8 foot round UFO moving through the sky" southeast of Vale. This town is located about 50 miles west of Boise, Idaho. Wayne described the UFO as "light tan with spots or markings, no lights." He added that what caught his attention was its unusual movement. "It flew at about a 30-degree angle from behind a ridge 80 feet above the ground, stopped, moved up and down rapidly, and then flew away at a very high rate of speed." No smoke or trail was visible during Wayne's four-second sighting. Many thanks to Tim Hagemeister of NACOMM

NEW MEXICO

On Sunday, May 3, 1998, a cow was found dead and mutilated in a remote mountain pasture 10 miles (16 kilometers) southeast of Questa, New Mexico (population 1,707). The cow, "which had been dead for about a day...was missing its eye and its tongue and suffered massive hemorrhaging, investigators say." John Paternoster, district attorney for Taos, NM, said authorities would investigate the case as a cattle mutilation--"one of a series of unexplained animal deaths in New Mexico in the past 25 years." "Samples of the cow's tissue, blood and organs will be analyzed at an Albuquerque laboratory, he said." "'No apparent cause of death was immediately visible,' Paternoster said, 'I'm not certain what we're looking for, but we have since the beginning been taking these deaths seriously.'" "A team of law enforcement officers" visited the crime scene in the Moreno Valley, "along with Gabe Valdez, an agent for the National Institute of Discovery Science, a privately-funded Las Vegas, Nev. organization that investigates paranormal phenomena." See the Albuquerque, NM Journal for 5/4/98. Thanks to Bruce-Knapp, UFO Roundup Vol. 3, #19, 5/10/98 Joseph Trainor.

ALASKA

Aaron Kristofer Asbury, Esquire reports about an incident in Denali National Park, Denali on June 21, 1997. At 12:00 AM I awoke because of a low tone vibration outside the cabin. I went outside to see what was going on, then a bright pulsating object came closer to me until I fell over thinking it would hit me. From far away it looked like an enormous metallic football, but changed shape to a small ball as it came to me, after that it slowly disappeared. I went back in the cabin to see that it was around 5:40 a.m., I didn't mind and went to bed. My brother woke me up at around 4:00 p.m., wondering why I was screaming in my sleep. I still thought it was the morning, and still do not understand that night. I get bits of memory from it back, but the feelings I feel are of both hatred and love. I remember, a being that looked like a small hairless primate. He told me he needed to learn why we were so careless? I didn't understand. Thanks to ISUR 907-696-5127, 19744 N.

UFO VIDEOTAPED HOVERING OVER A BEACH IN BRAZIL

March 28, 1998, hundreds of people relaxing on the beach at Praia do Jose Menino in the seaport city of Santos were startled when an OVNI (Portuguese acronym for UFO) suddenly appeared offshore. Santos is in southern Brazil, about 120 kilometers (72 miles) southeast of Sao Paulo. As the UFO hovered over Ilha da Urubuquecaba, an offshore island, Valentim do Nascimento picked up his video-camera and began shooting footage. The UFO was described as a disc-shaped object that hovered with a yellow, green and blue luminosity. Nascimento videotaped the UFO for 40 minutes as the beach goers watched it hover. Then, the light flickering strangely, the UFO zipped away. (See the Brazilian newspaper Gazeta de Limeira for March 30, 1998, Muito obrigado a Pedro Cunha por eso caso).

AUSTRALIA

Last week, I ran a story concerning illuminations in the sky and I apologize for not giving Harry proper credit for his fine work. He wrote: "On October 11, 1997, several million Australians observed extremely bright fluorescent lime green illumination across the skies. These illuminations have been observed in other parts of the world such as Mexico and the United States. Ross Dowe National UFO Hotline in Melbourne received well over 1000 telephone calls from Australian residents of the eastern states of New South Wales and Queensland, etc. (See Files #18) Harry Mason also writes. "Perhaps you could also pass on the dialogue with your scientist friend who reckons these lights were due to plasmas nucleating on upper atmospheric particles - I sincerely doubt this explanation giving the huge energies involved as per the eyewitness interviews. Also you took this section out of context re my contention of it's relation to similar timed events in the USA in Mexico and Texas and in both the Australian and USA events you would be unlikely to get agreement from eyewitnesses on your scientist's viewpoint." Thanks to Harry Mason for the Australia article.

MISSILE DEFENSE

The South Jersey Courier Post reported: Despite test failure, Pentagon supports missile defense plan. Disappointed but pushing ahead, the Pentagon has no thoughts of backing off its $15 billion missile defense system after it failed for a fifth straight time to intercept a test target. "We will continue to test the system until we get it right," said DOD spokesman Ken Bacon. The missile-defense system failed for the fifth time to hit a target when a booster rocket misfired in a New Mexico test. The Pentagon said it isn't ready yet to cancel the $15 billion Lockheed Martin project, which is called Theater High-Altitude Area Defense. It is being developed to protect troops in the field from attack by Scud and other short and medium range missiles.
