Sightings continue at high rate

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 alien craft. Assuming UFOs are real, then much of what we know in science is wrong, that it is quite likely they had a profound effect on the development of Earth. This week's files cover Mars anomalies, Earth microbes may survive on Mars and UFOs in the movies.

UFOs were seen over Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, and Washington. Sightings were also reported in Brazil, Canada, Mexico, and the United Kingdom.

Mars anomalies

Richard Buchli D.V.M. Ph.D. writes: This image is posted on the European Space Agency site. I suggest you enlarge and lighten this ESA photo of object on Mars. It sure looks like some kind of "modernistic" structure?? What do you think??

The European Space Agency Mars Express High-Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) obtained image data in orbit 438 with a ground resolution of 43 meters per pixel. The images cover the structure Coprates Catena, a southern part of the Valles Marineres canyon at about 14° S and 301°E. Coprates Catena is a chain of collapse structures with a depth of between 2500 to 3000 meters. The valley walls show a few land slides. This indicates that their origin is solely due to expansion of the surface or collapse with removal of underlying material (water or ice?). On the valley floor, the bright area exposed is possibly sulfates.

Editors Note: Just above the bright area in the image that could be an ancient lake are structures or square blocks that may indicate ancient construction On the canyon wall there is what appears to be writing? Also the green areas indicate plant or alga growth.

Earth microbes may survive on Mars

NASA reports that terrestrial microbes that hitch a ride to Mars on spacecraft may be able to survive under special circumstances, according to a new laboratory study. The research suggests scientists should take extra care when analyzing potential signs of life during future missions to the Red Planet.

Most spacecraft that touch down on Mars have not been thoroughly sterilized by heat or radioactivity - so they carry with them living microbes from Earth. But Mars's thin atmosphere allows such intense ultraviolet radiation to reach the planet’s surface - triple that found on Earth - that any life inadvertently carried on the spacecraft is thought to be wiped out quickly. Indeed, Martian-level doses of UV radiation have destroyed some microbe species in just seconds in laboratory tests.

But now, an international team has tested the endurance of a particularly hardy type of blue-green alga - or cyanobacterium – that thrives in dry deserts from Antarctica to Israel. The resilient bacterium, called Chroococcidiopsis sp. 029, was chosen as a "worst-case scenario" for contamination of the planet.

The team found that dormant spores of the bacterium had mostly died after five minutes of Martian UV exposure. However, the bacteria were able to stay alive if they were shielded by just 1 millimeter of soil during the tests, which ran for up to 24 hours. Making a living under such a protective coating, the bacteria "could survive – and potentially grow - under the high Martian UV flux if water and nutrient requirements for growth were met". "We think there are places on Mars where Earth life could make a living," says John Rummel, NASA's planetary protection officer in DC, who is charged with preventing microbes from contaminating worlds beyond Earth. He says this study shows "even the toughest stuff doesn't survive for long" on the surface of spacecraft, but he says live microbes probably do take shelter within the spacecraft bodies.

Martian gullies that may periodically be flooded with liquid water, or areas around the poles, where "microbes and ice could make a happy partnership", Rummel told New Scientist. Snip Thanks to http://www.newscientistspace.com/channel/solar-system/dn7454

Editor’s Note: In 1976, Mars Viking Lander’s Life Probes and Gilbert V. Levin's Labeled Release Life Detection Devices found microbial life on Mars. I spoke with Dr. Levin who is more positive than ever that life was found.

This color -enhanced view of Big Joe boulder at the Viking 1 lander site (SOL 556) with a green covering and a cap of material on top of the boulder missing from surrounding rocks. Courtesy of Lunar and Planetary Institute/Texas. Viking likely took photos of blue-green alga - or cyanobacterium on Mars in 1976. In my opinion Mars has water, plant life and evidence of ancient structures. NASA may deny life on Mars because it is an ideal site for colonization. June through August, Earth is catching up with Mars bringing us closer for at least 5000 years. It is slowly becoming the brightest star or planet in the night sky.

Mars Rover Opportunity breaks free

"The Mars rover Opportunity resumed rolling freely across the Martian surface on June 4, 2005, after it was freed from a sand dune where it had been mired for nearly five weeks. The rover cost $400 million to build.and got caught in a one foot high sand dune on April 26.

Alabama high speed triangular objects

MONTGOMERY – A Security Officer on vehicle patrol near the downtown area at 2:45 AM, on May 25, 2005, noticed two strange objects flying above him. They had strobe lights that emanated along the entire length of all 3 sides of each object as well as 3 large pulsing lights under the bottom of each object. He states, “I noticed a low humming noise coming from the triangles that were flying at about 10,000 feet altitude.” The objects moved slowly at first, almost seeming to hover, and after about 20 seconds they exited to the west in a burst of speed that I can only describe as almost instantaneous.

The objects then stopped again and were only visible as 2 pulsing lights at that point. The objects again moved to the West and disappeared completely. The objects maintained exact distance from each other during this entire time and the altitude of the objects did not seem to change during this sighting. The event lasted about 30 Seconds. Thanks Peter Davenport Director www.UFOcenter.com

Arizona numerous lights light up the sky

CAVE CREEK -- Here in Phoenix the UFO activity is increasing and a fellow named Josh is taping incredible lights appearing and seemingly taking off at great speeds. The video is great and shows a series of lights. Josh’s video was one of many shot north of Phoenix. It was a clear night and no winds. I have received e-mail from a resident living up there reporting that they have seen the lights and they say they show up often but never that bright. I, also, received an e-mail wondering if they were airplanes but then that would mean there were 5 or 6 planes turning their lights on at the same time and then turning them off, which is unlikely, especially at that location. I also found out the distance from house to object (s) may have been several miles away but close enough to hear them if they were planes. Video footage ©2005 Josh. Thanks to Brian Vike

California triangle moving sideways

SACRAMENTO – The witness spotted a triangle shaped craft with distinct illuminations on each corner at 2 PM, on May 25, 2005. The craft was about the size of a pea at arm’s length, and its speed was about twice as fast as a high flying airliner. The object seemed to be traveling sideways towards the south. Thanks Peter Davenport Director www.UFOcenter.com

SAN FRANCISCO --A shiny dime sized metallic object appeared out of nowhere and vanished within 20 seconds over San Francisco on May 25, 2005, at 4:15 PM. I was on a tour boat on San Francisco Bay returning from Alcatraz Island. I was with two friends but they did not witness what I saw because by the time I told them it had already vanished. The boat was approaching San Francisco Pier 41, when I noticed a shiny metallic gray object that suddenly appeared over downtown San Francisco at no more than 10,000 feet. It was the only object that caught my eye, from my view it appeared to be just a bit smaller than a dime, it moved slowly upwards for about 10 seconds, then it rotated about 45 degree as if making a sharp left turn. The bottom appeared flat with a slight bulge and a white center. There was a shiny reflection that lasted about 10 seconds, then it changed to a diamond shape and sped upwards at incredible speed and vanished completely leaving no trace. The sky was mostly clear except for patches of low fog over the bay. Thanks Peter Davenport Director www.UFOcenter.com

SONORA -- Mark A. Olson, D. M. writes, “After a few quiet nights, the sightings continue. There have been some very strange sightings of flashing objects and more glowing objects on June 4, 2005.”

The above images are of the flashing object that was videotaped at 10:23 PM last night. The object made no sound and flew in an erratic zigzag fashion roughly to the northeast. The flashes were the only visible evidence of the object.

Out of six glowing objects sighted last night, three occurred right after the other between 10:54 and 10:59 PM. The first two of the trio headed to the South, the third to the North. Each one appeared, brightened, and then slowly disappeared as they moved farther and farther away. (Please note that these sightings were felt before they happened. My brother and I both felt that these objects were going to appear just before they did, as documented on the video clips.) These video clips can be seen here: http://www.sonorasightings.com/109186.html

Florida glowing orbs

ORANGE COUNTY -- Roberta Puhalski, writes, “On April 22, 2005 about 11 PM, the Georgia UFO Group Hotline received a cell phone call from just north of Orlando where three Orange County fishermen had just observed at 20 yards a glowing orb type of UFO. The orb performed incredible maneuvers at a fantastic speed. They were so shocked; they phoned 411 and asked for the Operator to get them in touch with any UFO investigator that could be found. They reached Tom Sheets of GUFOG in Fayetteville, Georgia who turned the case over to Roberta Puhalski, the founder of the Central Florida UFO Group in Lakeland.

Roberta Puhalski met with the three witnesses at the event site two days later and conducted a complete investigation. She determined that the witnesses while night fishing and shining a flashlight observed what was initially thought to be an alligator's eye reflecting their flashlight beam about 20 yards away in some bushes. Suddenly the light rose up from the bushes into full sight at an alarmingly fast speed and was observed to be a dimly glowing orangish-red orb about the size of a basketball (+). The orb continued to rise at this very fast rate until it reached an altitude of about 150 feet, then it hovered, moved to the side about 100 feet, and then came back down, tracing something like a triangle in it's flight path.

The object moved so fast it was difficult for the eye to follow. He added that there appeared to be an object of unknown size and shape behind or attached to the orb, but it was difficult to see exactly what it was (due to rapid speed and brief period of flight). This object flew off and vanished after returning closer to the ground. Puhalski found these witnesses credible, forthright and cooperative. Thanks to Roberta Puhalski, founder-Central Florida UFO Group

Hawaii a UFO was seen over volcano

MAUNA KEA VOLCANO – A private airplane pilot and amateur astronomer was walking on Jade Avenue in Volcano, at 7:35 PM, on May 24, 2005, and saw a classic disc shaped UFO hovering between Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea.

My vision is not the best and this could have been a lenticular cloud. The sun had set and the sky was clear. There was just one UFO and the color appeared to be gray. The event lasted perhaps five minutes. There are a military base, and astronomical observatories in that area. Thanks Peter Davenport Director www.UFOcenter.com

Illinois fireworks UFO

IPAVA -- The UFO looked like a fireworks rocket that shoots up but never explodes. On May 20, 2005, at 10:08 PM, three friends were swinging on a swing set in a public park in small town of about 540 people. They saw an object shooting from the ground up at about 50 meters from behind a tall tree. They waited for it to explode like professional fireworks do, but it didn't! There was dead silence. There were about ten small bright balls of light lined straight up and they disappeared altogether. As they disappeared I saw one of the middle balls curve out of formation with the other and there were airplanes or jets flying behind it. Then we saw a bright yellow light swerve all over the place but it slowly got dimmer and dimmer until it was gone. Thanks Peter Davenport Director www.UFOcenter.com

ROCKFORD -- On the morning of May 15, 2005, Nancy was photographing what looked like the Northern Lights, only 'white' at 3 AM. She thought she was photographing lights on a clear night and she believes the object clearly shows portholes running along its length. There is a 'blue cast to the object' and a blurred trail to the left of the object that appears the object was moving from left to right at some speed. Thanks to Dirk at the ufoDigest.com Email - publisher@ufodigest.com and Skywatch International. http://www.skywatch-international.org/

Indiana black shape-shifting black mass

SOUTH BEND -- At 7:45 PM on May 25, 2005, the witness saw a black shape-shifting black mass in the sky traveling in a gentle southeast to northwest direction about two miles south of the Indiana and Michigan border between Niles, Michigan and South Bend, Indiana.

I watched this phenomenon for at least 20 minutes before it was obscured by moving clouds. Several jets flew by and the black shape-shifting mass seemed to be at the same altitude, but moving very slowly. Thanks Peter Davenport Director www.UFOcenter.com

Nevada multiple orange colored objects

LAS VEGAS – On June 5, 2005, a woman reported that she and a neighbor witnessed a number of flying objects between 5:45 and 6:40 PM. Some of the objects were alone and the last sighting on the same day ended up being a large orange, pulsating cluster of objects. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research

New Jersey sunset photograph of orbs

NORTH BERGEN -- John Schuessler MUFON's Director reports, Marc Taylor was standing on his balcony which looks out towards the west, and took a picture of a nice sunset, when he uploaded the image to his computer he noticed weird orbs in the photo. He states, “I didn't see the orbs when I took the picture only when I reviewed it later.” Thanks to MUFON and Marck Taylor www.mufon.com "webmaster@mufon.com

New York five shiny dome shaped objects

BROOKVILLE -- On May 27, 2005, at 14:00 hours, on a sunny day, five silver extremely shiny, dome shaped objects were seen flying across a clear blue sky. The first three were flying in a triangular formation, with two others following behind, perfectly aligned. They all flew at the same speed and where headed east. It took about 3-5 seconds for the objects to leave. My wife was with me and saw everything I am describing. Thanks Peter Davenport Director www.UFOcenter.com

North Carolina disk and apparitions

Alan Caviness dropped off this photo of aircraft lights taken during an extended exposure. The blinking lights are shown at intervals of about one second. Alan Caviness CD shows many explained and unexplained dimensions containing images that you can receive free if you donate to these files.

ORIENTAL – On May 25, 2005, at 2:21 AM, eerie purple and greenish glow from craft of about 24 feet diameter that hovered in tree limbs, or partly concealed by them, as three figures moved toward the ground in an enclosed sphere of gray light. The three approached the screen porch of the home where I was sitting. The figures were almost transparent and had an orange cast that seemed to grow lighter and darker – almost as if they were "talking" with signals. They came right up to the screen and watched me for more than a minute. At the time I sensed that the entire area was enclosed in some sort of force field – almost as if I were in a black hole where nothing could escape or enter if not already inside. It was the oddest sensation I've ever experienced. Thanks Peter Davenport Director www.UFOcenter.com

Ohio UFO near the ground

FOSTORIA - On June 6, 2005, George Ritter took this photo of a UFO over a nearby farmer's field. He has reversed the colors to show a negative image. Thanks to George Ritter.

Oklahoma fighter chases triangular craft

NOBLE – The report was sent by a competent, educated scientist of sound mind and character, who never reported anything like this before. At 11:30 PM, on May 27, 2005, while taking my nightly walk, I observed a triangular craft traversing the sky from north to south at about 20,000 feet on a clear night.

The craft's speed was about 500 knots and several miles behind was a fighter jet moving very rapidly, 600 to 700 knots. Both craft were flying toward my position. I could begin to hear the engines of the jet at that time. It appeared the triangular craft was toying with the fighter, and when it got close the craft would speed up. As the two got nearly directly over my location, the triangular craft made a sharp right hand turn toward the west, but the jet was unable to make the sharp turn and made a much wider loop. After a few seconds the triangle accelerated dramatically and left the jet behind.

One thing that was odd about the triangular craft was the three lights making up the triangular pattern were not equal in distance. Referencing the wingspan of the jet, two of the lights on the craft were about 50 to 75 feet apart and the third light was 100 to 150 feet from the other two lights. Additionally, the two lights closer together were at the front and the other further away light was at the rear facing the pursuing jet. This made the craft to appear to be moving in reverse. The color of the triangular craft lights were an unusual milky white color, nothing like the very bright red, green and white lights observed on the jet. Tinker Air Force Base, which does have fighters, is located about 25 miles east of my house. ((NUFORC Note: We found the witness to be quite objective. Thanks Peter Davenport Director www.UFOcenter.com

Texas disc photographed

LAKE O' THE PINES -- On June 2, 2005 at 7:40 PM, the witness was walking the north shore to get some pictures with his Fuji film Fine Pix 2800 Zoom digital camera. He took several pictures of the sky, the lake, a passing boat, and later the sunset. I saw nothing unusual, until I returned home and uploaded the images and noticed an oval object in only one of the pictures. The object appeared to be somewhat distant. The picture was taken at approximately 7:55 PM while facing east toward the dam at the eastern end of the lake, and my camera was optically zoomed at 6 X with the settings at 2 megapixels and "fine" quality.

The object appeared to be over the dam at the Lake O' the Pines. Thanks to Skywatch International http://www.skywatch-international.org/ Images © Darron F. Darron F. Eyewitness report UFO Casebook online report. http://www.ufocasebook.com/lakeothepines.htm

Utah white light

MOAB – Ed writes, “I read your account from last week's Filer’s Files 23 (5/25/05):
BEAVER DAM – The witness saw unidentified flying objects last month, and again on May 16, 2005, at 9:30 PM. A small white light appeared that moved like a satellite, only much, much closer to Earth traveling towards the southwest at low altitude. It seemed to slow down or even stop.

Ed states, “On May 29th about 10 PM, I saw this exact same thing. It looked like a satellite for a few seconds, then got really bright (brighter than Jupiter) for maybe three seconds, then flew away and was gone in couple of seconds. I guess I saw my first UFO.” Thanks to Ed.

Washington flying triangle

KIRKLAND -- As a former airline employee the witness was trained to identify incoming aircraft. On May 13, 2005 at 12:19 AM, the witness saw a craft flying at of 200 to 350 feet traveling at 70-110 knots banking towards the northeast and becoming undetectable as it became level. The slow, low flying object was black with seven lights on two angles of a triangle, one on tip three following each leading edge, none on back end of triangle.

The color of the lights was a very light salmon/orange yellow. Lights glowed with barely detectible movement similar to air heating phenomena on heated roadways. The witness states, “It was banking on it's forward right edge and I had a clear view of the bottom of craft as it was banking, but when it leveled out it was GONE/perfectly stealthy. It made barely any noise. I also did a better Photoshop picture of the craft and the location. The picture I am sending was taken in the predawn so the viewers could see the craft like I did. Thanks Peter Davenport Director www.UFOcenter.com

Update on Brazil and the ETI Reality!

Picture: Taken aboard a Brazilian Naval ship in 1958, by Almiro Barauna, a professional photographer.

J. J. Hurtak, Ph.D., writes, “ The May 2005, announcement by the Brazilian government and the Brazilian Air Force to officially open their files regarding Extraterrestrial sightings throughout the country, is a major planetary breakthrough! Their files go back to 1954 and reveal that unique aerial sightings were labeled “H Traffic”. The release came after pressure from a Brazilian team of experts who insisted on public access to this information. This release is a major first step towards the global recognition of the reality of the existence of Extraterrestrials.

A further confirmation of ET life would carry profound consequences first involving a reassessment of astronomy, cosmology, and theology and finally placing the ‘mystery of the missing link’ within a new perspective. Among the documents released was the May 1986 sighting where 21 objects, some over 300 feet in diameter, were seen on the Brazilian air traffic radar over Rio de Janeiro causing jets to be scrambled. I visited Brazil during this time and was a witness to some of the confidential pictures which I analyzed and can affirm that the event was real.

The presence of observed and documented extraterrestrial technology and space movements should reveal a superior intelligence operating in our atmosphere. It should also reveal that these visits are from a wide variety of visiting extraterrestrial races. If they are clearly more advanced, could such superiority be partly due to genetic engineering which created a more functional brain capacity or orders of higher genetic selection? It may also be due to the fact that ET life may have existed in environments that have not been devastated by cataclysms, such as floods and meteorite impacts, allowing tens of thousands if not millions of years of ongoing evolution.

A confirmation of ET reality would also mean that no complete answers as to the origin of life could be found on our planet alone, and therefore, we must press onward with findings in the larger planetary and galactic design of intelligent life. The spiritual dimensions of life, however, I believe have been slow to awaken on planet Earth, since in order to become explicit, it requires that our consciousness, rise above the growing circles of family, country and race and finally discover our divine destiny with cosmic cultures.

Why the secrecy on the part of the extraterrestrials? Perhaps they realize that we are just now taking our ‘baby steps’ and are observing us as we awaken into a vast and awesome universe. Other documents suggest a non-benign form of intelligence interested only in their own mineralogical mining and/or private testing of various forms of species’ life even at the expense of our own free will. In the end, the release of the documents covering more than 50 years of happenings in one of the largest countries of the world is highly significant at this time of a ‘near clash’ of civilizations. Perhaps, this will encourage us to practice a cosmic law of love and respect for bio diversity reflected in the spirit of our mother Earth. Snip

Canada sightings and images

SCARBOROUGH, ONTARIO – Paul Shishis writes, “I wanted to share another sighting with you, recently seen and filmed.” On June 1, 2005, at 3:10 to 3:15 PM, at my place of work. I witnessed more high flying objects in the clear blue sky. The closer ones are the rare sightings, which I patiently awaited to photograph. I was on break with camera at hand, so I snapped some pictures. The results viewed in the photos give a good description, better than any witness. The first photo I snapped, I used my hand to block the direct sun's rays. The second photo taken at 10:15 AM, showed another kind of steam like white object. These objects appear strange. George, keep up the above excellent work!!!! Paul Shishis.

CAMBRIDGE, ONTARIO -- It was about 9:15 PM, three friends were fishing on May 27, 2005, when they saw a green light flying in circles. They watched for about five minutes and saw three large triangular shaped crafts, with a center of the circling light. The witness states, “We thought we were going crazy so we stopped a cop and asked him what they were, and he said they are not spot lights, because you would be able to see the light ray.” The police officer took off with his lights flashing. We went home and laid on the trampoline and watched it after a while. There was a total of seven witnesses. Thanks to Brian Vike Director

TERRACE, BC -- On May 25, 2005, I was sitting outside with my two dogs at 11:15 PM, when I saw a white flying object heading ENE. It was pretty easy to spot and I would estimate that the object was +- 2000 meters up. After thirty seconds the object became very hard to spot, because it decreased its lights considerably to the point that one could only vaguely spot it's round shape. Suddenly there appeared a huge brilliant white light above me only sixty meters away. I would estimate its size at +- 20 meters in width. The object remained stationary for 4 to 5 seconds and disappeared on the spot. Thanks to Brian Vike Director

TERRACE, BRITISH COLUMBIA – A white ball of light was seen on May 28, 2005, flying overhead and heading northeast at fifteen minutes after midnight. . The object, estimated 4000 meters high, it did not change it's brilliant white appearance. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research

Mexico photograph

GUADALAJARA -- UFO Casebook received a sighting report from Oscar Franco on June 2, 2005.

He reports, “On September 11, 2004, my family and I were visiting Ajijc, Jalisco, Guadalajara and at exactly 4:58 PM, one of the family members yelled that there was something unusual above Chapala Lake. We began to watch the object that looked similar to the planet Saturn and had a hazy area around the craft, like an energy field. The object dipped down, and skimmed across the waters of the lake, and that was when I took five photographs of it before it disappeared. Thanks to © Oscar Franco, and the UFO Casebook online report.

UK UFOs spotted

BRADFORD, WEST YORKSHIRE -- Monday, May 9, 2005, saw a flurry of UFO sightings in UK. About 9:30 PM, Manchester was at the car park when his encounter occurred. "I went out to retrieve my car and saw a strange and pulsating 'object' in the sky above me," Brian reported, "It made no noise. It looked to be very large and was brightly lit and looked like a double cross or # if you prefer. It had red, green and white lights on it." "After watching for half an hour, another similar-looking 'object' glided quite fast but stealthily across the sky beneath the first one. There was also one parked higher up.

GUERNSEY in the Channel Islands had a report the same day, at 2 AM, eyewitness Andrea M. reported, "I turned around and saw something and then it was gone. It consisted of bright lights that looked like stars but so bright it didn't seem possible. The lights were two meters (6 feet, 6 inches) apart and in the shape of a flat circle. I would estimate that they were 400 feet (120 meters) above ground." Thanks to UFO Roundup, Vol. 10, # 20, May 18, 2005, Editor: Joseph Trainor

"Mysterious Skin" Movie: Human and Alien Close Encounters By

Harold Egeln writes, “Sometimes movie makers can bring in a bit of the UFO experience into their films which are not promoted as UFO movies, as what seems to have been done with "Donnie Darko" by director Richard Kelly. In "Darko," although UFO encounters were not mentioned, they seem to have been placed covertly "between the lines," or film frames, either by design or as an subconscious undercurrent on the filmmaker's part.

While the popular space movie hits "Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith" shown above by Lucas films, and "Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" attract crowds, and with "War of the Worlds" and the space-themed "Shark-Boy," on May 6 a brilliant new movie, "Mysterious Skin" by Gregg Araki based on the 1995 novel by writer Scott Heim, with an overt UFO encounter subplot, has been drawing an enthusiastic audience. And not necessarily a "space movie" crowd at all.

Praised by some critics as one of the year's best movies, such as by A.O. Scott in The New York Times the hauntingly beautiful, harshly disturbing and sensitively sophisticated 99-minute film, rated NC-17, bravely revolves around the consequences of the sexual abuse victimization of two eight-year-old boys in Kansas in 1981 by their Little League coach.

One is Neil McCormick, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt (the alien boy in NBC's "Third Rock from the Sun" series).

The other is Brian Lackey, played by Brady Corbet (from the "Thunderbirds" and "Thirteen" movies).

Both are taken advantage of by Little League coach Heider, played by Bill Sage, who is portrayed as a humanized exploiter attracted to the forbidden. Early on in the movie, two nights after Brian has his first episode of five hours of missing time and a nosebleed after the coach takes him to his home when a baseball game is rained-out; he, his mother and sister witness a huge flying saucer close up.

The blue-colored glowing UFO glides silently in the night sky over their yard and house, magically shown in the movie. They are all in awe of this beautiful sighting, which inspires a moment of wonder. And haunts young Brian, influencing his unremembered trauma, making him ponder about a possible connection between the UFO and his missing time episode. snip
