UFOs ARE REPORTED AROUND THE WORLD -- Large 'motherships' and smaller UFOs are being reported from almost every state including Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Louisiana, Texas, plus Columbia, England, Germany, Brunei, and Australia. Intense solar flare activity blasting radiation millions of miles into space has created speculation that the UFOs are coming into Earth's atmosphere for protection. The US Air Force investigated UFOs for twenty years admitting to more than ten thousand sightings. Despite intensive investigation almost ten percent remain unexplained. Congressman Gerald Ford asked Congress to investigate UFOs in 1966, is now the time?.

DISCLOSURE PROJECT CALLS FOR HEARINGS BY CONGRESS

To hold open, secrecy-free hearings on the UFO/Extraterrestrial presence on and around Earth. To hold open hearings on advanced energy and propulsion systems that, when publicly released, will provide solutions to global environmental challenges. To enact comprehensive legislation to research, develop and explore space peacefully and cooperatively with all cultures on Earth and in space. The recorded testimony of scores of military, government, and other witnesses to Unidentified Flying Objects and Extraterrestrial events and projects from around the world establishes the existence of an UFO/Extraterrestrial presence on and around Earth. This recorded testimony consists of dozens of firsthand, often top-secret witnesses to UFO and Extraterrestrial events, internal UFO-related government projects and covert activities, space-based weapons programs, Extraterrestrial Intelligence, and covert, reverse-engineered energy and propulsion system projects.

The technologies that are of an Extraterrestrial origin, when publicly released within a planned transition period, will provide solutions to global environmental and security challenges. These numerous recorded witnesses constitute only a small portion of a vast pool of identified present or former military, intelligence, corporate, aviator, flight control, law enforcement officers, scientists and other witnesses, who will come forward when subpoenaed to testify at US Congressional hearings. Without a grant of immunity releasing them from their security oaths, many such unimpeachable witnesses fear to speak out. This will provide unprecedented benefits and opportunities to all on Earth and in space. Contact: Alfred Webre 604-733-8134 or Dr. Steven Greer 540-456-8302

Editor's Note: I will be one of the speakers on May 9 in Washington, DC to request hearings. Former President Ford told me that he was never provided information on UFOs despite his requests as Speaker of the House, Vice President and as President of the United States.

CONNECTICUT CIGAR MOTHERSHIP SPOTTED

KENSINGTON -- On April 13, 2001, the witness was out walking about 10:45 PM when she saw a glowing object that looked like a diamond shooting star, only it wasn't shooting. The witness started to look more closely. She said, it kind of spooked me out a first, because it wasn't making a noise and it was flying low. Then I walked onto another street when it started coming closer going towards the center of town, (Berlin). As it flew in that direction I saw that it was sort of a cigar shaped object with no blinking lights, just solid red and white lights. I continued walking towards my house and then I noticed another one coming from the same direction. I saw this person in a car and I asked them to stop. The girl was kind of freaked out that I was stopping her at night. "Look at that!" She goes "Its a plane" and I'm like "NO! Its something else, I just saw another one." She was very skeptical. I watched it go towards the same direction as the first. The second object had the same description as the first. 1.) At first it looked like a glowing Diamond sort of thing. 2.) It had solid red and white lights. 3.) The craft were kind of cigar shaped. 4.) Both flew very low about the altitude of a helicopter. 5.) They weren't making a sound. The lady who stopped asked to use my cell phone to call her friend that lived in the area. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National Reporting Center. NUFORC

"WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE?" CONTESTANT SAW UFO

On Sunday night April 29, 2001, Regis Philbin the host of the most popular game show on television "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" asked the contestant to tell about her UFO sighting. The contestant mentioned briefly her UFO encounter near Pine Bush, New York. The audience chuckled, so she pointed out that she wasn't a kook!

NEW JERSEY HUGE DISC

WEST BERLIN -- Mrs. D'Imperio writes, at 9:30 PM on September 12, 2000, our family saw a very huge lighted disc up in the sky. My brother in-law shouted for the family to come out on the deck. We all looked up and saw a lighted wheel with what looked like bicycle spokes coming out of it. Another ring was on the outside. What amazed me was lights were coming down the spokes going around the outside of the other ring coming back to where they started and coming together all of them in the center of the ring. They kept repeating this action. Then from another direction of the sky came a second object that joined going around the circle but making another spoke. As we watched for some time two helicopters came overhead. One was bigger then the other and went straight for what we were watching. They were flying around for a while. If I attempted to draw the UFO, it would look like a wheel within a wheel with lights going around and coming together in the middle. I posted this information on the web. Thanks to Mrs. D'Imperio at alian 10094@aol.com

VIRGINIA FLYING ORBS

ROANOKE -- Andy and Robin Hodge report seeing flying yellowish white round orb like objects? We saw two together while out on my deck April 23, 2001. They were close together and moving so fast I barely caught a glimpse before they were behind the clouds. They were definitely not conventional aircraft. They could have been meteors but do they travel together in twos? I saw no tail, just round fast moving yellowish white lights that looked like orb shapes. There were many airplanes out during this time, but none could move that fast! Thanks to Robin at ahodge@roava.net

OHIO GLOBE AND POSSIBLE INTERCEPT

CADIZ - The witness was coming home from work on April 19, 2001, when he noticed a white light globe off in the distance over my house at 11:55 PM. He states, it is very unusual for craft to fly low over my small town residence. As I got closer to my home the globe started moving very quickly across the sky. It would move east then stop on a dime and move west, stop again and go straight up and east. I pulled in my drive way and the white light globe lowered itself to three miles away. It hovered again and the white light turned red. It stood there for a few seconds then started west, the red light began flashing fast like a strobe light, and it just vanished. I live outside of town with few lights and I could hear dogs all over town barking. When the light vanished all the dogs stopped barking. Two days ago at midnight I was watching TV when my entire house started shaking very faintly though enough that my candles were vibrating off the window." The witness is a very respected person in his community with a degree in law enforcement. He ran inside grabbed his camcorder and drove to the top of the hill where you can see for miles, but the light never came back.

OHIO UFO INTERCEPT -- James Greenen a MUFON field investigator reports that on April 24, and 25, 2001, on paltalk.com an Internet chatroom a gentleman who runs that sight that had a UFO fly over his car. The UFO stopped his car. He observed a F-15 at full throttle with wings back and afterburners on, break sound barrier and pull up along side of the UFO that suddenly made a quick left hand turn in front of the F-15, and the pilot almost lost it. His dad observed a UFO the night before and got pictures of it. He needs help investigating this sighting. The control towers in a couple of cities around him have told him that the information is none of his business. Stop by on paltalk.com and join the group. The gentleman's name is nighthawk.

INDIANA ORANGE HOVERING FLYING TRIANGLE AND DISC

MIDDLETOWN -- We noticed an orange colored light in the sky straight ahead on April 19, 2001, so we watched it for about twenty minutes at 4:30 AM. The light appeared to be in a triangular formation. A plane flew underneath the UFO and as it went under the red lights appeared on the UFO as if it were giving a warning. The UFO started moving slowly at first gaining speed toward the right and then it came to a stop and hovered for about five minutes. Then a small star shaped object branched off of it and started flying straight up and around as if it were in orbit with the earth, but still in the atmosphere. The star shaped light disappeared, but we continued to watch the other object as it started moving further away and disappeared. It was neither a plane nor a star and I have never seen any thing like this before.

CLOSE TO ILLINOIS STATE LINE -- The witness on April 18, 2001, was traveling on Interstate 90 in Indiana, and noticed a cross like or star like object in the sky. It was very bright opaque white and larger than surrounding stars. The object was above horizon as we traveled late in the night. The object rose vertically and moved in the opposite direction we were traveling. I moved forward in my seat, turned my head upward and to the left as it passed over the roof of the vehicle. When the object was passing I got a good side view and a bit of the back of the object. The witness stated, "There were many small red lights curved around the base and the lights flashed on either side of the craft." The flashes possibly obscured more red lights on the far side. The red lights curving gave the impression that the object was circular or at least the base was circular. I viewed a bright, white cross like or star like object with many smaller red lights. I will confirm time with my spouse. Peter Davenport of NUFORC spoke with this witness, and found her to be quite lucid and serious-minded in her description of the event. NUFORC

ILLINOIS TITANIC TEAR APPEARED WITH A GUST & VANISHED.

SCHAUMBURG -- I was outside on my roof at 2:18 AM on April 15, 2001, because that is the time the ship Titanic sank 89 years ago. Well, I was looking up at the stars wondering how those people felt when I saw a flash of light come from behind me. I got scared because I thought it was lightning, and I turned north to see for sure. There were no clouds or anything, so I turned around. Maybe 30 seconds later it happened again and this time I felt a gust of wind also from the North. I looked up towards the sky and saw a bright shiny object moving very slightly in the sky. It was almost diamond/tear shaped and definitely not a planet, star or satellite. I'm in an astronomy class and I know the difference between the three objects. Therefore, I was a little scared and curious. I stood up and waved at it, and then it disappeared. Peter Davenport notes that, if this event occurred, we question whether it had anything to do with the sinking of the Titanic.

LOUISIANA ROUND LIGHT

On April 25, 2001, at 9: 02 PM Carol sighted an object coming from the west. The object appeared red and white kind of blended together flying fairly high at a pretty fast speed, and faster than most planes. It got behind the many trees in the front yard and I walked to the other side of the yard and saw it again. Carol states, "It was a larger solid round white light moving at the same speed gliding smoothly along as they usually do." Before leaving my sight flying southeast, it again turned to the red mixed with white color. It became smaller and continued on the same flight path. Sighting lasted approximately two minutes.

TEXAS LARGE OVAL FLYING OBJECT

GRAHAM -- Donna B. writes that on April 24, 2001, at approximately 10:30 AM, I observed a large oval object in the southeastern sky; it was silver in color and was hovering. Cannot determine how high it was. It "faded" instead of blinking out this time. There wasn't time to grab binoculars and camera, unfortunately. Have observed this type of UFO before, but have never seen them just fade. Thanks to Donna B. djb0898@wf.net

COLOMBIA THREE UFOs OVER CAPITAL

BOGOTÁ -- William Chavez reports that on April 23, 2001, at 4:15 p.m., three objects of unknown origin were seen flying over Bogotá where more than 3,000 people in the city's business district witnessed them. The objects were in the vicinity of Cerro El Cable Hill where they remained motionless for four minutes. Radio broadcaster "Radiodifusora Nacional" and Todelar phoned Contacto OVNI, our research organization, to discuss this sighting live, and because in recent years this type of phenomenon has become increasingly common. Last March, a "mothership" was captured on video over Barrio Santa Isabel. When the video was analyzed it was possible to see a large tubular object at an altitude of 10,000 feet. This object also headed toward Bogotá's Cerro El Cable Hill. On April 15th, Mr. Oscar Berrio filmed a disc-shaped object in the vicinity of El Dorado Airport, and we are investigating this sighting.

UNITED KINGDOM 23RD UFO SEEN OVER DALES IS GIANT DISC

DERBYSHIRE, ENGLAND -- Andy Darlington of the Matlock Mercury Newspaper writes, "The mystery of UFO sightings over the Peaks and Dales shows no signs of abating after the 23rd reported sighting in the last eight months." Since September, locals have spoken of strange lights, flying saucers, and huge triangular craft in the skies. One was even caught on video. Now a 34-year-old Wirksworth man, who asked not to be named, says he saw a giant disk-shaped craft over Idridgehay. He was driving to market in Derby at 3:00 AM when he saw the UFO hovering near the road. In addition, he was the first person who'd seen the UFOs to admit feeling afraid by what he saw. "It did frighten me because I couldn't explain what it was," he remarked. "I've never seen anything like this before and logic couldn't explain it. It was shocking. I've never been believer in UFOs and sightings but I believe in them now." The man said the craft was hovering above woods and seemed to rotate. It had blue, red, and white lights. The incident follows another sighting of three flying saucers above Youlgrave last Wednesday. Thanks to Gerry @ Farshores

GERMANY HAS 40 UFO SIGHTINGS

MANNHEIM -- Christian Siedenbiedel reports that the German UFO Registration Office run by Werner Walter has been stressed out since the beginning of February. "A new UFO craze has started in Germany," groans the 43-year-old man who has headed the Office for the past 10 years. "Forty unidentified flying objects in six weeks -- that's more than in 1999 and 2000 put together." Mr. Walter puts some of the blame for this latest wave of UFO hysteria on increased television coverage of the crash of the Russian Mir space station, the planet Venus, and disco searchlights. Even the police called on one occasion; claim they had pursued a UFO in their patrol car. These were most likely the searchlights. A woman in the town of KONSTANZ, claimed she had seen a cylindrical object that was several hundred meters (yards) long above her on the market square in broad daylight. Someone in Hamburg observed a "classical" flying saucer with a diameter of 30 meters (100 feet). An "extraterrestrial theme park" is even being built for millions in Switzerland.

BRUNEI UFO SIGHTING

GADONG -- On April 26, 2001, a husband and wife claimed that they had seen an unknown flying object in Gadong's airspace at around 12:30 AM. They were on their way home from a dinner occasion when Philip Chua, 33, and wife, Silvia Goh Mei Ling, 28, were shocked by the bright object in the skies. They had earlier seen the UFO around the area of Jalan Tungku Link. Coincidentally, he had a camera with him. He stopped his car and took pictures of the object, but the object vanished as if 'it' knew someone was taking pictures of 'it'. He said when interviewed by Media Permata. Upon passing a bridge near Emperor's Court, the wife claimed that they saw an object that appeared again near Rimba, The next day; Chua sent the film to his friend's shop to be developed. Strangely, while his friend was processing the film, the shop's power was cut off for an hour. However, Chua felt relief as the object was captured on the film. He spread the word around his friends.

AUSTRALIA FLYING TRIANGLE

SALT ASH, NSW -- Darryyll Jones writes that he holds an ultra light pilots license and a yachtsman so he is more aware of the sky. On April 26, 2001, 15 miles north of Newcastle. I was looking at the sky with a friend at 8:00 PM when a huge triangular outlined shape formed by white lights, mostly on the leading edge, but enough on the trailing edge to define this boomerang outline, flew directly over head. It had to be massive. My first impression was that it was between 10,000 to 30,000 feet high. It was 5 degrees wide, silent and flew straight with no ionization trail. Suddenly it was gone like the lights went out. Only minute's later single lights began scribing perfect arc's between 40 to 80 degrees south, first in one direction then the other in exactly the same circuit, then they too were gone. They were making a crescent shape as they too were fading out in the western portion of their arc. I have wracked my brain for an explanation such birds, aircraft, or asteroids. My friend and I sat down and made notes that were near identical. We concluded the most likely explanation was a mother ship and the single orbs somehow came from it.

I am still far from satisfied with that explanation though. As the military aircraft from a nearby RAAF base were out in larger than normal numbers, the three helicopters and possibly five F18's might have been a laser type focused display. The triangle was "flying" in the direction of the base. My friend was looking the other way when I spotted the triangle approaching. He got two and a half seconds to observe it, while I got five. We agreed on what we saw. The orbs were around for 13 passes for three minutes at very high speed. They dimmed out as they headed west for the sun now over the horizon, suggesting again deep space objects. The main group and then fractured and returned to earth much like fighter pilots peel off. There was a small storm in the distance with heavy lightning that continued all night. Others claim to regularly see the big triangle inland at Bathurs. Thanks to Darryyll Jones vital.earth@hunterlink.net.au.
Editor's Note: Two well qualified witnesses observed a UFO. The craft may be stationed at the nearby air base or pulling into our atmosphere for protection from unusually heavy solar flares emanating from our sun.

SPACE TOURIST DENNIS TITO CHECKS INTO SPACE STATION

US businessman Dennis Tito paid the Russians $20 million to go into space. He blasted off successfully in the Soyuz TM-32 spacecraft and became the first space tourist when. He and his two cosmonaut crewmates successfully docked with the international space station on April 30, as the two vehicles sailed 240 miles above central Asia. Tito says, "I love space." The 60 year-old apparently had no problems adjusting to space. "It was a great trip here." The US strongly opposed the trip by an American civilian. It will be interesting to find out what he sees in space. Thanks to Space Flight http://spaceflightnow.com/station/stage6a/010430fd12/

TAIWAN HEROIC DOGFIGHT

This is a translation of a Taiwan Daily Gazette article. "In a heroic dogfight fought over international waters off the mainland China coast, a 60s era American-built Lockheed Electra propeller airliner with 24 US Navy passengers/observers aboard chewed up one of China's best state-of-the-art supersonic fighter aircraft. The Americans, utilizing the infrequently seen combat tactic of straight and level flight, often accomplished by relying solely on autopilot, engaged the unfortunate single seat combat jet and knocked it out of the air using only one of its four formidable rotating air mass propellers. After the action, the crew and passengers/observers dropped in on China's Hainan Island Resort, for some much-deserved R&R as guests of the Chinese government.

THE UFO - JESUS CONNECTION

David E. Twichell writes, "The ancient astronaut and Biblical UFO hypotheses are not new. However, no one seems to want to take the matter to the next logical step. If Ezekiel's, "wheel within a wheel," and Moses', "pillar of fire and cloud," were forerunners of today's UFOs, then the Star of Bethlehem and the brilliant cloud to which Jesus ascended must be treated in the same vein. When Biblical descriptions of anomalous aerial phenomena are overlaid on that of modern-day UFO reports, the picture seems to meld as one. Once the evidence has been presented, the reader is led to a conclusion that is at best convincing and at least thought provoking. Are you willing to risk having your worldview shaken?

NEW NASA SHUTTLE VIDEO OF UFOs IN SPACE

Jeff Challender has prepared a new tape of various UFOs that were caught on recent Shuttle video footage. Jeff has over an hour-long tape of UFOs shot in space. Jeff spends hundreds of hours watching the shuttle broadcasts from space and is now an expert on NASA missions and even those onboard the shuttle are unlikely to see what Jeff does. Using Jeff's directions you will be able to learn the difference between space junk, ice crystals and real UFOs. One segment has 24 UFOs watching the shuttle from space. I feel confident we could go into a court of law and convince any jury, UFOs are moving around our Earth. Send $25 to: Jeff Challender 2768 Mendel Way - Sacramento, California 95833-2011.
