"I don't see the logic of rejecting data just because they seem incredible." Astronomer Fred Hoyle

The purpose of these files is to report weekly the UFO eyewitness and photo/video evidence that occurs on a daily basis around the world and in space. Many people claim it is impossible for UFOs to visit Earth, I ask you only to keep an open mind and watch the evidence we accumulate each week. These Files make the assumption that extraterrestrial intelligent life not only exists, but my hypothesis is that of the over one hundred UFOs reported each week many represent a factual UFO sighting. Bright Anomaly Seen During ISS Space-Walk"

UFOs were seen over Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Indiana, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee, and Wisconsin. Sightings were also reported in Brazil, Canada, China, Finland, Kenya, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. Successful Iraqi elections a Springboard to democracy.

Bright Anomaly Seen During ISS Space-Walk

Jeff Challender reports, “On Wednesday, 26 January 2005, the hardy crew of ISS Expedition 10 set out on the first EVA (Extra-Vehicular Activity or space-walk) of their (http://www.spaceflight.nasa.gov/station/crew/exp10/index.html) increment aboard the station. (NASA report HERE http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/spacenews/reports/issreports/2005/iss05-4.html) Commander and Science Officer Leroy Chiao (http://www.jsc.nasa.gov/Bios/htmlbios/chiao.html), and Flight Engineer - Soyuz Commander Salizhan Sharipov (http://www.jsc.nasa.gov/Bios/htmlbios/sharipov.html), donned the Orlan spacesuits (http://www.myspacemuseum.com/orlan.htm), and exited the hatch of the PIRS module (http://www.russianspaceweb.com/iss_dc.html ) at 1:43AM CST. The mission to install several new experiments on the outside hull of the Zvezda Service Module (Living Quarters & Life Support) (http://www.astronautix.com/craft/issvezda.htm), and inspect the exterior vents relating to the Electron oxygen generating (http://www.explore-physics.com/physics/E/Elektron.html) and Vozdukh (http://www.explore-spacetravel.com/space_travel/V/Vozdukh.html )CO2 scrubbing systems, went very well. The vents proved to have some interesting deposits around them. There was some suspicion that clogging of these vents might have contributed to several system failures over the last few months. Photographs were snapped of the residue, for later analysis on the ground. Only one minor glitch occurred; a power connection to the new robotic arm experiment (ROKVISS (http://www.technovelgy.com/ct/Science-Fiction-News.asp?NewsNum=291) was not working correctly. This problem was quickly rectified with a little extra elbow grease on the part of the crewmen. The men stayed ahead of their timeline throughout the operation, and returned to the airlock, resealing the hatch about 30 minutes ahead of schedule. The spacesuits performed flawlessly, and all of the mission goals were met satisfactorily.

Approximately 40 minutes into this EVA, the first of 28 possible anomalies appeared. It emerged from behind the Progress-16 freighter, and rapidly exited from the field of view (http://www.russianspaceweb.com/progress.html) cargo to left screen. This still frame depicts the trajectory and motion of the object. It emerged from BEHIND the Progress-16 cargo ship. This means that it did NOT come from the station itself, which, unlike Shuttles, doesn't shed much in the way of ice or debris. In fact, ISS is almost completely devoid of such things.

Iraq – Successful Elections a Major Victory

BAGHDAD – Millions of Iraqis risked their lives and defied suicide bombings, sharp shooters and mortars to cast ballots in Iraq's first free election in a half-century on January 30. 2005. Brave Iraqis voted in large numbers showing their courage, willingness to defy terrorists and to start a democracy in a new nation.

Voting was thought to be greater percentage than voted in the recent US presidential election. Women in black abayas whispered prayers at the sound of a nearby explosion as they waited to vote at one Baghdad polling station. But the mood for many was upbeat: Civilians and policemen danced with joy at one of the five polling stations where photographers were allowed, and some streets were packed with voters walking shoulder-to-shoulder to vote defied violence. The significance of the success of the elections should not be over looked. The US long-term goal to promote democracy across the Middle East made progress in an area where family dynasties and authoritarian rulers control most of the area. I have been to the Middle East dozens of times and a major change occurred for freedom and democracy in the region particularly for women.

In the past women were oppressed, unable to attend school, drive cars, or work outside the home or even to show their face in public. This is a major step for setting people and particularly women free. A strong turnout and results that the world views as legitimate will likely also speed the departure of American troops. One third of those running for office were women. The future of the Middle East is being changed dramatically. Once women feel the freedom of voting, holding office, and being accepted in a man’s world, the Middle East will be changed forever.

I salute the bravery of the Iraqi people who stood in line to vote despite threat of death. The newly trained 128,000 Iraqi army should be ready to take on the terrorists in the months ahead. The terrorists were not an effective fighting force and were only able to conduct nine suicide bombings on the polling stations. The inability for the insurgents to launch effective attacks show they are localized. Count on the media to find a cloud in the silver lining, but count on our troops and the Iraqi people to serve as a launching pad for democracy throughout the region.

Prayer Request - from Sgt. RICHARD C. DOTY NM State Police writes, "When you receive this, please stop for a moment and say this prayer for our troops around the world." Our soldiers need your prayers. "Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. I ask this in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Amen."

Just send this to all the people in your address book. Do not let it stop with you, please. Of all the gifts you could give a US Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marines who are fighting to keep the terrorists from attacking us on America soil again. Prayer is the very best one.

Alabama Cigar Shaped Craft

AXIS -- One year ago in January of 2004 a coworker and I saw a cigar shaped craft four miles away flying north at about 600 MPH and 5000 feet at 9:20 AM. A week later, a security guard and I saw a similar cigar moving due west. The first cigar had a dark spot mid-ship, while the second object had four dark spots evenly spaced in brushed aluminum.

On January 13, 2005, I observed the same type of plane approaching from the north headed due south at low altitude again 9:15 AM. I pointed it out to a coworker and said watch this plane it looks like the disappearing plane I saw last year. Shortly after it passed the 2 o'clock position it disappeared with the sound, suddenly ending a second later. As it passed overhead it appeared to have an Air Force emblem on the wing in a light gray color. Both planes sighted where all white with no other identifying markings visible. Both planes had two engines attached to the rear fuselage like old DC-9's. The skies were clear on all four occasions. I wonder if we have a daylight Stealth aircraft! Thanks to Brian Vike www.hbccufo.org .

Alabama - Another White Object Filmed

SATSUMA – The witness noticed a flash in the sky at 10:28 AM, on January 23, 2005, next to a small cloud. Having my digital camera with me I decided to put it in movie mode and shoot a little video. Upon downloading the clip and watching it I found a fast moving object in several frames. The total clip length is 16 seconds and objects are spotted in several frames. This is the first frame that the object appears in at 5.34 seconds into the video. The object is at the top of the frame to the right of center. The object appears again in this frame at 6.43 seconds at the top of the frame right of center again. Thanks to Brian Vike www.hbccufo.org

Arizona - Rainbow Light in Sky above Phoenix

PHOENIX -- My fiancé was walking the dog and called me outside to look at very bright multicolored sparkling light in the sky on January 16, 2005 at 4 AM.. After taking a look, I ran and grabbed the binoculars and we both looked at it and it seemed to be emitting a rainbow of constant clear true colors of red, green, blue, white and yellow. The lights seemed to be coming from a diagonal line off one side of the craft, but the shape of the craft was hard to see, since it was small in the southwest sky.

(Peter Davenport Director of NUFORC spoke at length and found her to be quite serious-minded and credible. We explored whether the witnesses might be observing the star, Sirius, which is quite prominent in the southern sky during the winter months. She looked again on the following night, and asserted that the object was not visible on that date, seemingly ruling out a star. PD)) Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.ufocenter.com

California -- Four Shiny Disc Shaped Objects

CUCAMONGA – The witness was looking north towards the San Gabriel Mountains and saw four disc shaped objects heading east on January 22, 2005, at 7 PM... They were shiny and reflective, not unlike polished Aluminum. A small propeller aircraft just south of the mountains started to approach, and the four objects disappeared immediately as the aircraft came into view.

MODESTO – R David Anderson writes, “I received an e-mail from a local man who saw a boomerang type UFO on January 11, 2005 at 9:10 PM. He wrote me about his sighting. He said " I was a skeptic until something unexplainable crossed my field of view. Facing due south in the spa a boomerang shaped, translucent object entered my field of vision (from behind and to the right) moving from NW to SE. Lack of visual reference cues makes this thing impossible to size, but it moved like a big object and the reflection of the street and city lights glowed dimly off the curved bottom surface at a seemingly moderate height, well below the airliner traffic. I've never seen anything like this before and never want to see it again. All I want is some kind of rational explanation for this stuff.

I responded to his e-mail and told him that I have seen these types of UFOs also. I had my sightings of several boomerang types of UFOs back in November. I am including a picture that I took back in October of 2003 that shows the UFO that I reported at that time. This UFO changed shape rapidly, but this still frame shows it with a boomerang form. I also have many other pictures of the UFOs that I have taken at my web site Boomerang shaped object in central California. Thanks to R. David Anderson

Connecticut - Cartoon Flying Saucer and Rectangle

NEWTOWN -- The object was hovering at 45 degrees above the woods behind my house on January 24, 2005 at 7 PM. The witness reports the trees are about 30 feet high. And the craft was about two inches across at arm’s length. The craft was shaped like a classic cartoon flying saucer -- round with colored lights all around it and a bubble shape on top. It appeared silver. It was silent and still for several seconds while its orange, red, yellow, and green square-shaped lights circled around it. It is unclear if the craft itself was spinning. I looked away and it was gone. Thanks to Peter Davenport

OXFORD -- We were driving along a winding, suburban Connecticut road when we saw what we thought was a jetliner on January 20, 2005 at 11 PM. The craft turned around and was heading towards us, shining a bright light towards the ground. “I turned to look at everyone else’s speechless faces, as it moved within 100 yards from us above the treetops hovering near large colonial homes going down beyond the treetops.” It looked like a large minivan without wheels or wings, with an ambulance-like door on the back of the object. The door was lit-up, or glowing. This was absolutely not a helicopter or an airplane, because we heard no noise. This was a lit up object moving slowly, then jumping quickly and hovering above the woods and homes. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.ufocenter.com

Delaware - Chevron Formation

LEWES – The witness was heading south towards Lewes, when he saw four solid red lights in a chevron formation on January 19, 2005 at 7 PM. They were hovering and remained stationary for 45 seconds, before they faded away, as if turning down a dimmer switch. A few seconds later, the same formation appeared in the opposite quadrant of the sky, remained lit for about 45 seconds, and again dimmed. The distance between the two points would have been far too great to have been traversed by a conventional craft. Shortly after the second appearance, a formation of 8 US fighter jets approached the area where the lights had appeared. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director, www.ufocenter.com

Florida - We Saw Disc-Like Object

LAKE WALES -- We were on Highway 60 near River Ranch when we noticed big lights on an object that was a disk with lots of lights (window like) which was moving at 8:10 PM, January 24, 2005. At this same time, I saw bright lights like a half-dozen flares that sparked and then were gone. In addition there were little lights flashing all over that area. We pulled off the highway in a safe place, and got out the binoculars and by the time he got them adjusted, the disk-like object was gone. However, I still saw the bright lights (a second time), and the little lights dancing were all over the sky. It looked like the top of a very wide oil refinery tank with lights mounted around the top edge of the tank. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.ufocenter.com

Indiana - Hovering Red/Orange Orb

BLOOMINGTON – On January 27, 2005, three witnesses, Alice and John and I spotted a bright object low in the western sky at 9:30 PM. The witness states, “I ran over to the door and saw a red/orange orb hovering in the tree tops. I thought maybe it was a star, but from experience I know to not second guess it. Anyhow, I grabbed my binoculars, and watched it and it barely moved. Then it started flying north and grew in brightness. It began to move fast, I called for Alice, my wife, and she came to the door and looked, and said "which one?" I was like "huh?” Low and behold there was a second one lower in the trees moving north as well and just as bright as the other and fading from red to orange. The objects went out of site, and John said he was taking off. About five minutes later John called me and said he had seen 5 objects hovering over Bloomington, and one moving west.

Nevada – Photos of UFOs

LAS VEGAS – Joe Held writes, “A man who prefers to remain anonymous has taken a series of photos.”

Pic 1: This photo was taken March 12, 2004 in Las Vegas.

At the intersection of Cheyenne Rd. and Lamb Blvd. Looking directly at Nellis AFB when this photo was taken. Pic 2: This photo was taken on November 1, 2004. This is a daytime photo of what looks like an orb shaped object. The object was flying from the southwest to the northeast towards Nellis AFB. It was at the intersection of I-215 and Hualapai on the far northwest side of Las Vegas.

This craft was flying at an altitude of approx. 20,000 feet. This photo was captured on a camera sitting on a tripod with a timer. +2 EV and Speed at 400 Thanks to Joe Held who will be posting more photos at http://www.informantnews.com

New York – Photo

Rick writes, This looks like this object in the photo I took from my living room window late one night 5 years ago. I was compelled to get out of bed one night and go to a window. Upon doing so, I saw this object about 20 feet away from the house.

I grabbed a camera and just lifted it up and snapped this picture without even looking through the viewfinder. Thanks, Rick in NY

North Carolina - Pulsing Multicolored Lights

SURF CITY -- Driving home from work, an object was initially sighted near Topsail Island on January 21, 2005 at 11 PM. At first, we thought it was a military Osprey craft, a VTOL aircraft, because the lighting was unfamiliar and quite peculiar. I stopped along the road and it was silent and in my estimation within 300 feet of the ground. I proceeded home a couple miles and it was sitting over the ocean in front of our home. I immediately retrieved my 4.0 mega pixel digital camera and took a number of pictures as it moved away. I noted pulsing of very bright red, white, yellow, (green?) and occasionally blue lights.

It was moving to the northwest at what I would estimate to be 35 knots. It was one to two hundred feet across. Within a minute or two, it disappeared behind (below) the island's northern horizon of trees and houses about a mile distant. The most interesting aspect of this sighting was that the recorded images had a characteristic luminous multi-directional, sinuous, plasma-like blurred trail which we did not visualize. Also, blue objects appeared and disappeared in what seemed to be random intervals in proximity to the object, at variable distance and position. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.ufocenter.com

Ohio - Star-Shaped Object with a Series of Lights

ASHTABULA -- My father was watching TV in the living room, and all of a sudden he shouted out for me to come quickly on January 21, 2005 at 7 PM. We saw a star-like object about 5000 feet up. The object was coming in from the northeast and heading southwest with a series of lights in the center of it's star shaped feature. Again no noise! My father and I do not believe it to be the space station because it was too low to the ground, and my father said that he never has seen lights like that on conventional aircraft. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.ufocenter.com

FOSTORIA -- VHS image of high speed craft taking off from a farmer's field. Estimated speed of over 2000 mph. This is a reverse color image from George Ritter's RCA VHS video camera. Note object appears to be behind the tree and approximately 30 feet in diameter.

Oregon – Huge Craft

PORTLAND – The witness was looking at a mysterious white light in the sky on January 19, 2005. There were several aircraft on approach for PDX international airport with their landing lights on. The sky was clear to the south, a 1/2 moon was in the west lighting up the 3:30 AM sky. He noticed a large object several miles south at a very high elevation approaching very fast. It was faster and higher than the incoming jets. The first thing I noticed was the speed and size of the object, then, I realized there were no lights or strobes. It was grey in color as illuminated from the moon. I called my friend, and he said, “Why are there no lights? It was a huge unmarked grey flat bottom solid shape, at very high altitude, extremely fast flying and totally silent straight line flying object. It flew north in a straight line that if it remained on this path it would fly directly over PDX. The tower must have seen this craft.

Peter Davenport spoke with this witness, and he sounded both sincere and credible to us. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.ufocenter.com

Tennessee – Silver Disc

BRISTOL -- Kim Shaffer MUFON SD reports, “A couple and his wife had just arrived home at about 5 PM, on January 17, 2005, when he saw a large silver disc with a flat bottom at about 70 degrees to his east. He described the object as being highly polished with a smaller dome shape upon the main body. The relative size to the witness was that of a basketball at arm’s length. He immediately alerted his wife who exited the car to also see the same object moving away eastward and ascending. The entire sighting lasted no longer than 20 seconds. Thanks to Kim Shaffer MUFON (eastern) SD www.mufontennessee.org

Washington - Lights In a Pyramid Pattern

PORT TOWNSEND - On January 18, 2005, the witnesses were about to cross the Hood Canal Bridge near Bangor Military Base when they saw two airplanes flying directly above one another-about 100 feet apart. They each had three white lights in a pyramid pattern. They swooped around in a way that planes can't and then disappeared into the water? we couldn't tell). Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.ufocenter.com

Australia - A Bright Light Flying Very Fast

CABOOLTURE – The witness was out side having a smoke looking up at the stars when he saw a bright light flying very fast across the sky. His mates ask what I was looking at and I showed them the light on January 15, 2005 at 11 PM. It was too high to be a normal jet plane or a jumbo jet and too fast to be a satellite. As it flew across the sky it suddenly disappeared. The color of the light was a bright yellow color like a star there was only 1 of these objects and it was like a star flying across the night sky very fast. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.ufocenter.com

Brazilian Air Force Admits Investigation on UFOs

Carlos Mendes of the Brazilian UFO Magazine reports 27 years later, the UFO phenomenon is still taboo to the Brazilian military.

In the months of October, November and December of 1977, and during the first half of 1978, the Brazilian state of Pará was invaded by UFOs flying at few meters above the trees and firing strong light beams at the people in the Marajó Bay region. Many people were harmed by the phenomenon. The bright objects were called: “vampire lights”, “bugs”, “the thing” and mainly “chupa-chupa” (the sucker). Witnesses claimed the UFO pilots were beings with the height of 1.20 or 1.30 meter. The people called it chupa-chupa because of the weird scars the victims bore on their body. The light beam used to leave tiny holes on the skin. Women had scars on their breasts. They seemed to lose blood during the attack. Men and women complained of giddiness, body numbing and headache after the attacks. The inhabitants of the cities of Colares, Santo Antonio do Tauá, Mosqueiro and Baía do Sol panicked on these days of bitter remembrance. The panic took over even the state's capital, Belém, with a sequence of strange lights report and chupa-chupa attacks in several quarters of the city, astonishing the authorities.

In the end of the 70s, scientists from all over the world came to Pará, Brazil, but they all failed to explain the phenomenon. Twenty-seven years later, documents from the Brazilian Air Force's secret service reveal that these lights from space were something much more unsettling than we can imagine. It is still a big mystery and a huge challenge to the science and to the Air Force's experts. Ufologists, scientists and researchers from Brazilian universities are collecting signatures to a petition that will be delivered to the Brazilian president Lula da Silva. It requires the Air Force to reveal the conclusions of the investigation on the chupa-chupa case. The petition already has thousands of signatures: physicists, biologists, journalists, officers and politicians among them. The campaign is called UFOs: Freedom of Information Now [www.ufo.com.br/secrecy.php]. The military report, called Operation Saucer, has 2,000 pages, 500 photographs and some 16 hours of films. Part of this report came to the public, through an interview with a brave Air Force officer, Captain Uyrangê Hollanda who gave it to Brazilian UFO Magazine’s editor A. J. Gevaerd.

The Captain was the operation commander, sent by the government to this secret operation to investigate. One farmer called Claudomira Paixão was a victim. She lived in Baía do Sol and told that, in the night of October 18th, 1977, she woke up when a strong light appeared through her house's window. “The air got warmer. At first, the light was green, touched my head and crossed my face. I woke up completely and the light became red. I could see a creature, like a man, wearing something like a diver's clothe. It had a device like a pistol. It aimed at me and the object blinked three times, as if shooting at my breast, almost always on the same place. It was hot and hurt me. I felt like there were needles piercing me. I think they collected my blood. I was terrified. I couldn't even move my legs. I was shocked.”

What she said to the military was very important because, for the first time, someone mentioned a being leaving the flying object to extract blood. Almost all stories talk about lights causing giddiness, weakness and “body shivering”. The only exception is a case, also in Baía do Sol, and talking about the appearance of a space couple that shot at a fisherman with a light-beam pistol, leaving him fainted for several minutes.

Captain Uyrangê Hollanda wrote up an Operation Saucer report concerning the alien aircraft flying over the region causing panic among the locals and drove some people to despair. They used fireworks to warn the neighborhood when chupa-chupa was coming. They often shot, with their hunting rifles, at the UFOs, said the captain to the Brazilian UFO Magazine [www.ufo.com.br]. “We always told them: don't shoot, don't shoot. One time a strong light was aimed at a carpenter. The 55 year old man took his rifle and shot at the flying saucer. The light surrounded him and he fell to the ground, almost paralyzed. For 15 days the carpenter could hardly move. In the first day the man didn't move at all. He could see, hear and speak but it was very difficult for him to move.” Said the captain in an interview to the Brazilian UFO Magazine, the only magazine interested in hearing his impressive story. Air Force's officer, Captain Uyrangê Hollanda snip

Canada - UFOs over

Airborne Eastern Canada -- On December 2, 2004, the witness took a West Jet Boeing 767 from Vancouver to Toronto, then to Moncton, NB. About an hour into the flight I asked the flight attended, if I could take some video out the window, she said sure, ''No problem''. I could see the sun setting in the background, a beautiful dark orange. I got as much video as I could before it went totally dark. Later in reviewing the tape “I noticed something black, on the top right hand corner of the screen and spotted a visible, black object, hovering around. It comes closer to the plane, and sticks out beside the window. To me it looks like a hockey puck, or cigar shaped object. You can also notice a small plane, going down in the clouds.

Southern Scarborough, Ontario -- On Thursday, January 27, 2005, I was facing south, cutting off the sun's direct rays with part of the building's top dock door, making it just right to view the rich blue sky. I noticed a single white object moving from north to south heading towards Lake Ontario, five miles away. The first one went by at 100+ mph. The objects moved in intervals, one at a time, about every 30-60 seconds. All were moving in a straight south flight path, about 1000-1500 feet high. You only had a window about 6-10 seconds to view each one passing, due to the direct sun's rays to the south. I feel photographic evidence is better than a thousand witnesses now.

Many objects viewed in the photographs were not seen with the naked eye, I saw one prominent object at a time, maybe two, not dozens. The good news is, I'm going video next week, and we'll see how that pans out!

Article About Brian Vike and Terrestrial Tourism:

Because of an injury that took him away from his job at a sawmill, Mr. Vike started compiling UFO sightings in the ‘80s as a way to keep busy. It was only in 2000 that the 52-year-old grandfather started his online project. “Like so many thousands out there, I put up a couple of pictures and started this little UFO site,” said the former planetarium volunteer. “And a couple of people started sending me the odd report and I thought, ‘Hey, this is pretty awesome.’ And if people are good enough to send in reports, I should do stuff about it.” Over the years, inside his home, in Houston, B.C., a community of only 2,600 souls, Mr. Vikes kept track of UFO sightings by sticking pins into a large map. And despite thousands of reports, and hundreds of pins, he himself has been witness to only two or three events, where the objects he saw could not be explained away. One pattern that proved obvious is that there are more reports of strange objects where there are more people to see it, he said.

Additionally, by recording where something was spotted, as well as when, people can more readily see other patterns in UFO activity. Soon, his project to study Canadian UFO sightings began taking off, even faster than he expected, blossoming into not only a comprehensive Web site, but also regular guest appearances on radio and a starring role in a Canadian documentary. His site now receives about two to three million hits a month and he expects to post about 300 Canadian sightings for 2004, including the four he received from this province. While his online clearing house of UFO stories started out as a hobby, and still is, it now has a strange life of its own, so much so that guests to his town credit Mr. Vike’s work as to why they visited.

Apparently, the more UFO and UFO-related stories he posts, the more stories, more attention and more visitors he gets. He said the other reason that people visit is because of the increasing number of sightings there, putting his region in competition with UFO-friendly Roswell, N.M. and Vulcan, Alta. Although after seeing the wild lands of northern B.C., tourists, many of them Americans, now come to see the landscape, he said. When asked if UFO sightings can be good for tourism, Mr. Vike said that he was already asked by Houston’s mayor to submit materials for a tourism package.

India -- Red Blinking light

BANGALORE -- It was January 14, 2005 at 11 PM, when I spotted Saturn (that was brightest during that time); I saw this red blinking light that was traveling at a good speed from East to West. I couldn’t see anything else even against the dark background except for this red blinking light. It made absolutely no sound. I called my wife and 6yr old daughter who both saw this for about 1 minute when it went out of sight.

It covered the entire area from east to west in just around a minute and made no sound even at that speed. Just for the records I am an electronics engineer and am working as a Project Manager in an IT MNC. I am also an amateur astronomer and a currently building my own 6" Newtonian reflector telescope. http://www.indiadaily.com/editorial/01-29d-05.asp

Mexico - Photo

COZUMEL -- While on a cruise with the NCL Spirit we saw the sun trying to break through the clouds on January 18, 2005 at 9 PM. I took a picture with the sun’s rays coming down. When arriving home I put the digital disc in the computer to see my pictures and I noticed a mushroom like spot in the center of the picture. My camera is DXG 328 3.0 Mega Pixels. When I enhanced the picture I could see a large mushroom shape. A strange light to the far left and a tiny dark spot to the right. It sure looks like a UFO.

Planeta UFO reports an important sighting was recorded by professional cameramen from Televisa in Mexico City on January 9, 2005, as a UFO flew over the Plaza Mexico bullring between 5:45 and 6:00 pm. On that same day, Mexican researcher Pedro Avila Rubio obtained impressive video evidence of apparently the very same unidentified flying object at an altitude of 4000 meters over the municipality of Tlalnepantla two hours earlier.

The witness described it as a sphere with protuberances in its lower side--making the analogy of a pea with corrugated edges. The strange flying object flew slowly south in a clear sky. Avila heads the "Los Ojos de la Ciudad" group, which is an organization specializing in UFO studies and well-known for the quality of its investigations. See Thanks to Scott Corrales, Institute of Hispanic Ufology.

UK/ENGLAND – Four Red Lights in Line

CROWBOROUGH, EAST SUSSEX – The witness says, “Not quite sure what I saw but at 4.45 AM on morning of 21st January my wife and I were woken to the usual sound of foxes in my back garden.” Looking up in the clear sky we both noticed 4 red lights in a perfect straight line moving across the sky, going north to south, followed behind to the right at the same height and speed two other red lights, none of the lights were flashing.
