Jack Picket the editor of military news magazines helped me obtain a 30 page FOIA release on Project Silver Bug that showed the Air Force was developing a disc shaped aircraft in 1955. He had personally seen four of the craft at Mac Dill Air Force Base in 1966, and was asked to release a story concerning these classified aircraft. Later, just prior to publication the article was cut, because a disc was seen flying low over Miami. Jack had personally seen four of the disc shaped aircraft in the disposal area that ranged in size from 25 feet to 125 feet in diameter. The four aircraft were saucers shaped with vertical stabilizers (tails) with AF Experimental written on the craft. He was told there were numerous similar craft flying, but they were unstable and frequently crashed.
This "saucer" designed aircraft was believed to use two to four J58 engines that were also the propulsion system for the SR-71. The SR-71 could fly faster than Mach 3 and was designed in secrecy by a team headed by Clarence L. "Kelly" Johnson, director of Lockheed's Advanced Development Projects office better known as the 'Skunk Works'. The existence of the aircraft was not officially revealed until February 29, 1964. Skunk Work's engineer Ben Rich is quoted as saying, "Some UFOs are ours and some are theirs."
Project Silver Bug was the research and development project to field jet propelled flying saucers beginning in 1955, that would be dispersed to underground bases to avoid Soviet attack. The disks were capable of vertical takeoffs and landings, and would be capable of Mach 3.48 - faster than the SR-71 Blackbird. In the Project Silver Bug Report, dated Feb. 15, 1955, and declassified on March 29, 1995, he claimed the disk interceptor aircraft would be capable of vertical takeoff and landing; a maximum level speed of 2,300 mph with afterburners; a ceiling of 80,600 feet; and a climb rate of 1.76 minutes to 36,090 feet. The Pratt and Whitney Aircraft Division of United Aircraft Corporation developed the J58 engines that in July 1976, powered an SR-71 to a world altitude record of 85,069 ft. and another to a world speed record of 2,193 mph.
The Report on Project Silver Bug was issued by the Air Technical Intelligence Center along with the Wright Air Development Center at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio. The Silver Bug report noted that a pair of ongoing US projects involving the building of flying saucers had already occurred. The book Page 5 of Slier Bug Technical Report below: The Silver Bug disc would be capable of vertical takeoff and landing; and performance greater than the SR-71. This performance was far in advance of any aircraft then and is roughly equivalent to the current F- 15 fighter."The Super Spies", by Andrew Tully, 1969, claimed these discs were being used as "Saucers with Ears," that is, for communications intercept missions.
The 1955 issue of Look Magazine state that, "New air defense problems were setting up requirements for aircraft performance which would apparently be best met by a saucer aircraft. Runways would not be needed and bases could go underground with tunnels and takeoff shafts set in the ground, complete with maintenance bays, fuel, and crew quarters. Those underground bases, the article said, would be bombproof shelters for a saucer squadron. The shafts would be sealed after takeoff for camouflage and protection."
It is rather obvious that our technology has greatly improved since the late 1950s, and that faster and higher flying aircraft are available to the Air Force. Modern aircraft should exceed 5000 mph and 100,000 feet altitudes.
Jeff Rense mentioned on his Radio show on December 3, 2003, that the US has built UFOs and that more data will be forth coming.
NASA reports that immense cracks in our planet's magnetic field can remain open for hours, allowing the solar wind to gush through and power stormy space weather. Our Earth is surrounded by a magnetic force field - a bubble in space called "the magnetosphere" that is tens of thousands of miles wide. The magnetosphere is part of the same planetary magnetic field that deflects compass needles. The magnetosphere acts as a shield that protects us from solar storms. According to new observations, from NASA's IMAGE spacecraft and the joint NASA/European Space Agency Cluster satellites, immense cracks sometimes develop in Earth's magnetosphere and remain open for hours. This allows the solar wind to gush through and power stormy space weather. We've discovered that our magnetic shield is drafty, like a house with a window stuck open during a storm," says Harold Frey of the University of California, Berkeley, lead author of a paper on this research published Dec. 4 in Nature. "The house deflects most of the storm, but the couch is ruined. Similarly, our magnetic shield takes the brunt of space storms, but some energy slips through its cracks, sometimes enough to cause problems with satellites, radio communication, and power systems."
Editors Note: These cracks in the magnetic shield seem to effect not only space weather but weather systems on the Earth
President George W. Bush may be preparing to put the US back on the path to the moon and establish a permanent base. It would be the first time in more than 30 years that astronauts have been to the moon. News.com.au reported that Bush will make the announcement either on December 17, the 100th anniversary of the Wright brothers first flight, or in his State of the Union address in January. The United States landed on the moon in July of 1969, and recently China announced plans to establish a base on the moon. Thanks to Dr. Bob Trundle Ph.D.
The amount of frozen water near the surface in some relatively warm low-latitude regions on both sides of Mars' equator appears too great to be in equilibrium with the atmosphere under current climatic conditions, said Dr. William Feldman of Los Alamos National Laboratory, NM He is the lead scientist for an Odyssey instrument that assesses water content. "One explanation could be that Mars is just coming out of an ice age," Feldman said. "In some low-latitude areas, the ice has already dissipated. In others, that process is slower and hasn't reached an equilibrium yet. Those areas are like the patches of snow you sometimes see persisting in protected spots long after the last snowfall of the winter."
Frozen water makes up as much as 10 percent of the top three feet of surface material in some regions close to the equator. Dust deposits may be covering and insulating the lingering ice, Feldman said. He and other Odyssey scientists described their recent findings today at the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco. "Odyssey is giving us indications of recent global climate change in Mars," said Dr. Jeffrey Plaut, project scientist for the mission at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
High latitude regions of Mars have layers with differing ice content within the top half meter (20 inches) or so of the surface, researchers conclude from mapping of hydrogen abundance based on gamma-ray emissions. "A model that fits the data has three layers near the surface," said Dr. William Boynton of the University of Arizona, "The very top layer would be dry, with no ice. The next layer would contain ice in the pore spaces between grains of soil. Beneath that would be a very ice-rich layer, 60 to nearly 100 percent water ice."
Editor’s Note: We have been telling NASA for many years there was evidence for water on Mars. It is nice to see they are starting to agree with us. Don't be surprised if the UK finds life when its mission lands on Christmas Day.
WATERVILLE – The witness was on his porch waiting for his girlfriend to get out of the shower on November 21, 2003. Watching the sky for ten minutes, he saw five lighted cross- shaped machines flying low in the distance at 1 PM. He states, "I ran inside and yelled to my girlfriend to take a look, she did and got scared stiff." They hovered in one spot for twenty minutes. There were five of them. After a period of time they slowly turned to the west and glided away. There were six lights on each craft. It scared my girl so much see shivered all night. Thanks to Peter Davenport UFOcenter
SEYMOUR - At 10:15 PM, the witness went out on the porch on a very cold clear night and saw a bright blinking object with numerous colors that was brighter than the other stars. It was blinking at quick intervals, unlike the lights of a plane or jet. His wife retrieved his binoculars and he saw a bright circular light with what looked like four or five rapidly blinking lights. The object was stationary and not emitting any noise. He went next door and awakened my neighbors and let them look through the binoculars. Their reaction was the same as mine. I called the Oxford Airport personnel. They told me there were no weather balloons in the area. I have some of it on video. I am not a pro, so the picture did not come out too good, but good enough. The object had moved further away at this point. After about a half hour it vanished. I hope to take the pictures somewhere to see if they can clear up the image. It was at night so you cannot make out any clear shape. I hope to see it again. Thanks to Peter Davenport UFOcenter
WATERTOWN - Rick Doty writes, "I recently was sent a document that pertains to an incident in Watertown, New York. There is no date on this incident that occurred in the early evening, when a UFO landed on State Route 12, about two miles southeast of Watertown. Two occupants exited the craft and walked to a residence east of Route 12. Several motorists stopped because the craft was blocking the road. Jefferson County Sheriff's Department received several calls reporting the blocked traffic on Route 12 and two State Troopers were dispatched to the area. In the meantime, the two occupants of the craft walked onto the porch of a residence. Sometime later, the two occupants of the craft returned to their flight vehicle. At this point about ten citizens and two state troopers witnessed the two occupants enter the craft and fly away. Several photographs were taken of this incident. One witness used an 8 mm movie camera to record the event. Later the film was developed and the two occupants of this craft showed up in the background of three photographs. The only hint I see that this incident occurred several years ago is the 8 mm movie camera. They went out about 25 years ago. I don't know if this is a hoax or a real incident. I never heard of it. Thanks to – Sgt. Rick Doty
BALTIMORE – The observer was walking back to his car at 9:40 PM, on December 1, 2003, on the uppermost roof level of a parking deck, adjacent to Baltimore's City Hall. The observer works in a model shop in downtown Baltimore, and saw a series of very dim lights in a chevron formation moving quickly to the south. The arrow shaped arrangement of lights meant there were possibly 5 or 6 lights on each "wing." These lights were very dim, and I could barely see them. However, they did continue to move in an erratic pattern to the south until I could not see them anymore. The object made no sound, and the lights stayed relative to their original position on the craft. If it was not some type of spacecraft, I think it could have possibly been a kite, or possibly a flock of birds. Barring an optical illusion on my part, it could not have been much else. Thanks to Peter Davenport UFOcenter
Jason writes that, "Filer's Files #49 article on Virginia sounds so close to what my family and I saw that I had to write and tell you. While I do not personally believe anymore that these are actual alien beings from another world (I believe they are something darker), I do know that some of these things are real and I have watched for years to see if anyone else had witnessed the same thing as me, but unfortunately I only know of a farmer in Scotland that reported something similar. I thought the term the witness used "surveying the woods" is almost exactly how I felt. Although, it seems silly to assume that this thing was surveying, that is exactly what it looked like. At first, we thought the lights were coming from hunters in tree stands. Thanks to Jason http://www.iwasabducted.com/ufoboard/reports/59.htm
Tom Sheets State Director reports that the witness contacted Chris Brennam of the Brunswick News; and he is reporting continued observations by multiple witnesses of distant aerial objects with blue, yellow, red, and green lights. Some observations including shape-shifting into objects with a fuselage and wing shape. This has been capped with the recent appearance of a large and closer low flying roundish object coming from the south at 3000-4000 feet altitude, the object having an array of lights on the bottom resembling a "honeycomb/grid" like pattern. The lights change colors and are very bright. I spoke to this witness on Tuesday afternoon and he agreed to meet with our investigators John Bodin, MUFONGA's DD for south Georgia, and Charles Bowen, SSD for the Savannah area, have been assigned. Thanks to Tom Sheets. www.mufon.com/georgia.html
PENSACOLA – The witness reports, "I went out for a smoke and saw an object come from the north moving south very fast, much faster than a plane or satellite." If you put your hands side by side, it was four hand spaces west of the moon on November 16, 2003, and this was no shooting star and was in the earth's atmosphere. It was six fingers wider than the moon, bright, yellow-orange with a halo or ring farther out. It just streaked across the sky and was gone. Thanks to Peter Davenport
SOUTHWEST MIAMI - On November 17, 2003, about 4:45 PM, the sun was getting low in the west in a bright clear sky, twenty miles from Homestead Reserve Air Base. I'm accustomed to seeing and hearing military jets from there. Working in the front yard I heard that military jet sound relatively close overhead as usual. Upon looking to see one of the beautiful F-16's or F- 18's, I was surprised to find I couldn't see anything. The loud engine sound flew northwest. I searched the sky for the entire time of the relatively slow, directly overhead passage but never saw the craft. Thanks to Peter Davenport
ST. PETERSBURG – The witness was walking his dog that was searching for scents on the ground on November 16, 2003, at 7:30 PM. The dog looked up twice, and I also looked up and saw a huge round object flying above the treetops. It had lights on the outer edges that were going around. It looked like a slide projection on the clouds but this projection traveled south over our roof and disappeared. I got my wife and we both saw it again! The phenomenon was also witnessed by another apartment resident hanging her laundry. Thanks to Peter Davenport UFOcenter
REYNOLDSBURG – On December 1, 2003, a cylinder shaped object moving east appeared in broad daylight around noon and was flying very high in the sky and was the size of a ball point pen tip held at arm's length. The witness had a passing plane to compare with the cylinder. The object passed behind the contrail of a jet airplane moving in the opposite direction, but left no contrail of it's own. Also, the object seemed to reflect the sun's rays inconsistently, and was not constantly illuminated by the sun as was the airplane moving in the opposite direction. Thanks to Peter Davenport
FOSTORIA CAVERN ENVIRONMENT – George Ritter continues to videotape UFOs that appear to fly into and out of a farmer’s field. A retired Ohio State Policeman has contacted us who investigated a similar situation. He physically walked through a field to pick up any wreckage of the craft. Nothing could be found. Obviously, what the video infers seems impossible, however, we request help from a geologist to help make an examination of the area. Many caverns are known to exist in the general area. Regardless of the weather conditions the temperature of the Ohio Caverns remains a constant 54° F. (12.2° C.) throughout the year. The air inside the Caverns is always fresh and invigorating. Many of the suspected caverns in the area have not been exactly located but some are known to exist within ten miles. I call on an experienced geologist to examine the site. Thanks to George Ritter
MOREHEAD – Investigators Donnie Blessing and Kenny Young are investigating a strange case. Donnie Blessing Southern Ohio Section Director MUFON, POSTING TO CURRENT-ENCOUNTERS LIST BY KENNY YOUNG).
"A short time ago I located and interviewed a very credible witness in Morehead, Kentucky that has provided me with a sober link between a UFO sighting and bizarre report of desperate and blood-curdling screaming sounds heard at the same location immediately after the unidentified flying object had departed." After the conversation I had to call a 'time out' and take some time to contemplate over this development as the report is terribly interesting. It is one of the best reports I have ever taken as I am impressed with the witness and extreme strangeness of the case. I will prepare the details of this case shortly. The witness did not report this except to the police and has no idea how it ended up at NUFORC. As stated earlier, the Morehead police department was dismissive of this incident. They acknowledged a search party and report of screaming sounds but said that 'northern lights' were seen in the area. From my conversation with this very credible witness, northern lights can be positively ruled out. Thanks to Donnie Blessing, Kenny Young and Peter Davenport UFOcenter
CHICAGO (West Suburbs) – The witness was driving on I-88 west, heading towards Aurora on November 19, 2003, at about 4:30 PM, when he saw two soft white lights a mile ahead. The sun was just setting, when he saw the first star on the horizon, and to the right of a star he saw another soft white light half an inch to the right, and about an inch below. The second light was moving slowly towards the first and about half way it disappeared. In a few seconds it reappeared next to the first light. I couldn't see any ship, but it was unusual since this happened during sunset and there was still a lot of sunlight. It was the absence of color that made me take notice. When the second light disappeared, it was very strange. Thanks to Peter Davenport UFOcenter
OMAHA – A very bright light was observed hovering north of I-80 on November 20, 2003, at 6 PM. Closer observation revealed a triangle shaped object with multiple lights underneath that did not make any noise. Thanks to Peter Davenport
DALLAS – Last week on November 19, 2003, at about 2:05 PM an observer reported seeing a gray cylinder that resembled a fuselage without any wings going upwards with a faint trail following it. The following two nights there has been a white or yellowish star that is out of place but has been seen in plain view at 5:45 PM and it is extremely too bright to be a star.
DALLAS - George Venner a MUFON investigator writes, "I live in a suburb of Dallas called Mesquite, and also saw the white or yellowish star. I filmed for about 10-15 minutes and questioned its identity because it was so bright and low in the sky, and no other stars were visible. I waited for 30 minutes and it still just sat there moving slightly like a star would over time. After reviewing my film and using Starry Night Pro software I believe it to be Venus that was visible at -3.95 which is very bright at that location at that time. Thanks to: George Venner MUFON, phone l 214-543-1964
CLOUDCROFT - On November 28, 2003, at about 1 PM, the witness was walking in the Lincoln National Forest and came upon a dead elk laying in a shallow ravine. The elk was no more than 200 yards from our subdivision, and perhaps half a mile from my house. There is a substantial elk population in the area, and sightings are not unusual. The dead elk was a small one, the length perhaps 4 feet, and weighing maybe 400-600 pounds. Rigor mortis was full and complete. There was no evidence the elk had been gutted by a hunter, as there was no apparent longitudinal incision on the lower abdomen/chest area. The head had been removed, as if cut from the body right where the neck joins the body, and the vertebrae stuck out from the cut area about 6 inches or so, ending in a smoothly sliced vertebrae.
The witness took photos that show the rectum of this elk has been smoothly cored out. Further, the genitals have been removed, and there is no obvious way to tell the sex of this animal. The removal of the genitals could be attributable to animals perhaps (we have mountain lions, coyotes, and bears) as the removal does not appear to have been in such a clean, surgical fashion upon my limited observation. The elk carcass is still on site for investigation. Brian Vike, Director CANADA HBCC Research California – Golden Sphere
BURBANK - At 8:30 PM, on November 17, 2003, the witness reports, "My daughter and I saw a gold sphere traveling slowly in the southern sky above Los Angeles, similar to sightings by my wife and I several months ago. It traveled to the southwestern sky in a circular motion for about ten minutes. I tried to get my telescope out but by the time I got set up, it vanished. Thanks to Peter Davenport UFOcenter
BURNS LAKE, BC - Two witnesses were traveling back home to Houston, British Columbia on November 16, 2003, after taking a two week holiday. They were climbing a small hill on Highway #16 just before Babine Forest Products when they both noticed a red ball of light ahead of them, dropping on a slight angle from low in the sky at 7:30 p.m. The witnesses said, the object, what ever it was seem to come down just on the other side of the hill they were climbing. Also, what they found to be strange was just after they lost sight of the red ball of light behind the hill, all of a sudden at the crest of the grade, on the highway, the whole area was glowing a bright reddish color. They reported that the tops of the tress were also bathed in a reddish glow. From their vantage point they could not see anything as they had not arrived at the top of the hill. They were only a few hundred yards away from reaching the top and from this location they should have been able to see what was causing this reddish glow. Just before they reached the top the light went out. The couple slowed down and kept their eyes open to maybe catch sight of it again somewhere just off the highway. But nothing could be observed. No vehicles were seen driving along the highway ahead of them. Thanks to Brian Vike, CANADA HBCC Research 1 866 262 1989 hotline
NOTTINGHAM - Whilst traveling north bound along the M1 motorway, five witnesses noticed a bright flashing light high in the sky at 12:25 PM. They saw a large bright white light flashing on and off at a slow pace on November 20, 2003. This continued every few seconds and when the light disappeared nothing could be seen even though it was a bright sunny day. We were all amazed and confused to what it could be. The light was intense. After about one minute and in the same direction other bright flashing lights appeared as if they were communicating with each other. We all agreed there were at least four lights maybe five. We continued to travel along the motorway and opened the car windows for a better look. We noted other motorist looking at the same thing. The lights continued for about four or five minutes. Before the lights disappeared, I noted one of them move to the 2 o'clock direction stretching as it did before disappearing. Thanks to Peter Davenport UFOcenter
MUMBAI – On November 30, 2003?, the observer saw a sort of UFO during the last full moon. At nearly 2:00 AM, the witness states, "I went to my balcony to see the stars (as its my hobby to watch stars). A bright star attracted me that was the brightest star in the sky. I never saw such bright star. Its direction was- towards Bandraside and it was just a bright light white and slight yellow without any blink or flash. I kept staring at it and gradually there was an increase in its size, and within 5-10 seconds, I realized that as it increased in its size there was a very fast circular motion of the light. It was like a ball burning in flames and is revolving very fast in circular motion. It remained for a few more seconds and then minimized and vanished. Thanks to Peter Davenport UFOcenter
MELBOURNE – The witnesses were at a party and decided to go for a walk down the foreshore nature trail on December 1, 2003. At 4:24 PM, we were about ten minutes into the trip and we were thinking about heading back and turned around when one of my friends yelled out, "Hey, what the hell is that?" There were a few screams from the females, but then we settled down and stood there in amazement as these nimble crafts floated 800 to 900 meters above our heads. They were disc shaped objects that seemed to be able to move in any direction and flew about in a pattern. They had no reliance on the winds like the planes of today. We were all frightened and we admitted afterwards that it was a terrifying experience.
Hello George, Just to let you know that we received over 20 UFO sighting reports in the last 24 hours (Dec. 10-11) throughout the whole country and they just keep coming! I don't have time at the moment to translate them all, but I'll keep you informed... Met Vriendelijke Groet / Kind Regards, Toine Trust Editor UFOPlaza Nieuwsbrief site: www.UFOPlaza.nl
