Mothership Over Texas
This week’s files cover: Japan Satellite Video of UFO over the Moon, Mars search for water clues in Antarctic, The Dark Force, Pravada reports: Aliens landed in Australia to create humans, UK Ghost train and Mothership over Texas.
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena were spotted over: California, Florida, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, Tennessee, and Texas.
UFOs were also seen in Argentina, Australia, Canada, Caribbean Sea, Germany, and the UK.
These Files assume that extraterrestrial intelligent life not only exists, but my hypothesis is that the over one hundred UFOs reported each week represent technologically advanced spacecraft conducting surveillance of Earth. One third of Americans believe the earth has been visited by UFOs and nearly one in ten people claim to have had close encounters with alien life forms!
I personally became interested in UFOs when I chased one over England when flying for the US Air Force. I've been investigating them ever since. The US Air Force under Project Blue Book investigated UFOs for more than twenty years, we continue this research.
The Bible states, "In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you." John 14-2. It is my belief that God has spread intelligent civilizations throughout the universe.

STEPHENVILLE - Jason Greywolf Leigh writes, "To give you a 'heads up' on a truly amazing 'UFO sighting' seen by me on January 8, 2008, and hundreds of other people including a pilot, policeman and local business owners. They saw a huge Mothership with bright lights flying low and fast over the town of Stephenville, 60 miles south west of Fort Worth on January 8, 2008. Witnesses claim the object was larger, quieter, faster and closer to the ground than an aircraft.

Steve Allen, a pilot and freight company owner, said: "The object I saw was a mile long and half a mile wide, it was positively, absolutely nothing from these parts?People wonder what in the world it is becauuse this is the Bible Belt, and everyone is afraid it's the end of times."
Ricky Sorrells, a machinist, said he saw, "a flat and seamless metallic object hovering about 300 feet over a field." He used the telescopic sights of his rife to get a close up view. (See more of the story at Texas below).
Carsten Dresbach from Germany writes, "I read your Weekly Filer Files continuously and with great interest! Congratulations for the excellent work! I'm also a big fan of the Selene-Kaguya Mission and their results. It provides a lot of really good photos and videos. This still image is a snapshot from a high definition movie taken by the onboard high definition TV on November 19. The still image shows the area around the landing site of the Apollo 17 (1972) (between "Monte Taurus" from north to south in the lower center.) The left side is "Mare Serenitatis." The following movies including the one explained above have been newly released on the JAXA website.
http://www.jaxa.jp/press/2007/12/img/20071221_kaguya_01l.jpg. I found a very interesting “object” on the left side of the picture (http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/9876/wasistdasbu1.jpg).
What could it be? An “Objekt” on the moonsurface? Another moon-satellite (but what nation)? A hole? A dust on the camera lens?
If its on the moon, it must be gigantic! What do you think?
A lot of people read your reports in Germany! Many greetings from Germany. Thanks to Carsten Dresbach
Editor's Note: In 2008, JAXA hopes to achieve more with new ideas. The major objectives of the mission are to understand the Moon’s origin and evolution, and to observe the moon in various ways in order to utilize it in the future. For those at JAXA, this New Year can be called a “dawn year” for the Japanese to make further advancements in space as the Japanese experiment module will be attached to the International Space Station and three Japanese astronauts are scheduled to fly to space.
Editor's Note: KAGUYA consists of the Main Orbiter and two small satellites (Relay Satellite and VRAD Satellite). The Main Orbiter is in the vicinity of the Moon and has been placed into a peri-polar orbit at an altitude of 100 km. The Relay Satellite is in an elliptic orbit at an apogee of 2400 km, and will relay communications between the Main Orbiter and the ground station. It is unlikely the Relay Satellite is visible in this image. A Chinese satellite is also in orbit around the Moon.
Three high ranking Japanese officials including the Minister of State for Defense Shigeru Ishiba, (above) Education and Science Minister Kisaburo Tokai, and Chief Cabinet Secretary Nobutaka Machimura have announced, they personally believe UFOs exist. We can speculate that these comments at this time would indicate that the Salene-Kaguya satellite or military radars had made some kind of contact with UFOs.
COLUMBUS - Ohio State News Release: As these files have claimed for manny years, "Scientists have gathered more evidence that suggests flowing water on Mars -- by comparing images of the red planet to an otherworldly landscape on Earth." In recent years, scientists have examined images of several sites on Mars where water appears to have flowed to the surface and left behind a trail of sediment. Those sites closely resemble places where water flows today in the McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antarctica.
NASA photos show gullies forming on images taken a few years apart.
The new study bolsters the notion that liquid water could be flowing beneath the surface of Mars. And since bacteria thrive in the liquid water flowing in the Dry Valleys, the find suggests that bacterial life could possibly exist on Mars as well. Researchers have used the Dry Valleys as an analogy for Mars for 30 years, explained Berry Lyons, professor of earth sciences and director of the Byrd Polar Research Center at Ohio State University.
Lyons is lead principal investigator for the National Science Foundation's Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) Network, a collaboration of more than 1,800 scientists who study the ecology of sites around the world. One of the LTER sites is in the Dry Valleys, a polar desert in Antarctica with year-round saltwater flowing beneath the surface. With temperatures that dip as low as negative 85 degrees Fahrenheit, it's as cold as the Martian equator, and its iron-rich soil gives it a similar red color. "If you looked at pictures of both landscapes side by side, you couldn't tell them apart," Lyons said. In the new study, LTER scientists did just that -- they compared images of water flows in the Dry Valleys to images of gullies on Mars that show possible evidence of recent water flow.
Team member Peter Doran of the University of Illinois concluded: the Martian sites closely resemble sites in the Dry Valleys where water has seeped to the surface and is very salty. It's full of calcium chloride, the same kind of salt we sprinkle on roadways to melt ice. That's why the water doesn't freeze. Natural springs form from melted ground ice or buried glacier ice, and the saltwater percolates to the surface. Because the suspected sediment sites on Mars closely resemble known sediment sites in the Dry Valleys, Lyons and his colleagues think that liquid saltwater is likely flowing beneath the Martian surface.
Bill Bean and family have had a series UFO sightings and strange experiences
Bill Bean writes: "I had to share this fascinating clip with you.
It happened during my interview on "Encounters Radio" last night. We were discussing my new book, "Dark Force". Tim Yancey had just asked me if I believed my experiences in that house were demonic? That's when a deep voice materialized among them, and a black figure was seen moving across the studio. GOD Bless. Please watch the video clip. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-5573527396077158251. Thanks to Bill Bean www.billbean.net
The Russian Pravda's Alexander Timoshik writes, The UFO Area website says the astronauts are represented in rock paintings in Central Australia. “Once upon a time, in a distant past, a huge red 'egg' had difficulties to safely reach the ground and crashed," the story reads, under a picture of Uluru. Out of the 'egg' emerged white-skinned beings, followed by their children," it says. The adults had problems adapting to the Earth's atmosphere and died. The children managed to survive. Later they painted drawings of the adults in honor of their parents.”
Parks Australia spokeswoman Mali Stanton said there was not anyone at Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park who could comment on the bizarre story.
Pravda.Ru has asked Nick Redfern, a famous British ufologist, to comment on these strange drawings.
Nick Redfern : There are many fascinating stories from ancient history that suggest to me the UFO phenomenon has been with us for a very long time. For example, it has been postulated that the story of Ezekiel's Wheel, as told in the Bible, may actually have been an early UFO landing. Also, in 329 BC, when Alexander the Great was crossing the River Indus to invade India, he recorded seeing several "gleaming silver shields" in the sky that repeatedly flew overhead. These are just two of the many accounts from ancient times of encounters with UFOs. Many people assume, wrongly, that UFOs are a modern-day phenomenon. However, nearly every ancient culture around the world had legends of strange people and unusual objects descending to earth from the skies.
Pravda.Ru: What do you think is the most amazing and significant event in the history of the contacts between aliens and humans?
Nick Redfern : In my view the incident at Rendlesham Forest, England in December 1980 ranks very highly in terms of being one of the most important UFO cases on record. In this incident, over the course of several nights, numerous US Air Force men stationed at the Royal Air Force Bentwaters military base witnessed very strange activity in the forest. Strange lights were seen. Several of the airmen described seeing a small triangular shaped UFO moving in the woods. Thanks to Pravda.ru.
Editor's Note : The Australian Government Website regarding Aboriginal land states, "The traditional land owners of Uluru - Kata Tjuta National Park, are direct descendants of the beings who created our lands during the Tjukurpa (Creation Time). We have always been here. We call ourselves Anangu, and would like you to use that term for us. Visitors will be able to climb Uluru between half-an-hour before sunrise and 8 AM. http://www.environment.gov.au/parks/uluru /
This may be an unusual camera lens reflection.
NORTHERN CALIFORNIA -- I was driving on Highway 395 on January 2, 2009, when my friend and I noticed some strange colored clouds and he decided to take pictures of the clouds. While we were reviewing them to see if they turned out, we came across one photo that captured something that we had not seen while taking the pictures. We don't know what it is and never actually saw it with our own eyes but it turned up on the photograph. Thanks to MUFON CMS
MISSION VIEJO - I saw a bright light at least 5,000 feet + high that flew back and forth in a circular motion and glimmering. The sighting lasted for three minutes and I had time to get a video.
The video shows circling and at the end dropping out of the sky - crashing towards Saddleback Mountain or Camp Pendleton area. Whatever it was did crash and it was large enough that there would have been damage. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, http://www.hbccufo.org
SAN LUIS OBISPO -- The witness saw the funnel at 6:45 AM, on November 28, 2007, but did not see the light until the photograph was viewed. Apparently 3 or 4 other funnels were also seen. The "spinning" of the funnel was seen. I used my Motorola PEBL GSM wire phone camera to take the photos. Winds were of variable direction at 6 MPH.
Comments: This sighting is an enigma. Meteorological conditions were everything, but favorable for waterspout/funnel formation on the day that the witness said that he took the photo. No clouds were even observed at nearby San Luis Obispo airport. The witness reconfirmed that the date of the sighting as November 28, 2007. This date was recorded on his camera. The relative humidity was only 30% which is hardly favorable for any kind of thunderstorm (or tornado activity). The closest Doppler radar recording any data for that day was at the San Joaquin Valley Radar which was nearly 200 miles away. A small radar blip was recorded in "clear air mode" 40 to 50 miles west of San Luis Obispo. This is the general area where the witness took the photo of "funnel." I am more inclined to believe that the witness photographed another phenomenon which may not be meteorological and could be another "unknown" natural process. Thanks to Bill Puckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com
CLAIRMONT -- The witnesses stated that they were having a New Year's party January 1, 2008, at 12:30 PM and saw the lights moving towards the west. They took some video footage and photos of nine lights. Weather: Clear skies, good visibility, surface winds were calm. Winds up to 2,000 feet started from NE at about 8 MPH at and changed to SE at 17 MPH at 5,000 Feet. The video appears to show 7 lights meaning some of the lights may not have fit into the video frame.
Comments: The video fits the description by other independent groups of witnesses in the San Diego area. The media (Fox 6 News) has proposed that the lights could have been Chinese Lanterns. Chinese Lanterns are launched on New Years as part of tradition. They are illegal in most areas because of fire danger. They can rise to about 5,000 feet and will drift with the wind. The movement of the lights was with the wind. This does not mean that the lights were Chinese Lanterns. The possibility exists that the lights drifted to the west in the Bay area and then became visible from San Diego to the northwest. If this is true, the lights would have been very high in the atmosphere (130 miles) and obviously could not have been Chinese lanterns. In addition witnesses and photos in the Bay area show that the lights moved relative to one another. This fact also makes the Chinese lantern theory less likely.

DANA POINT -- If they like you, or they wouldn't be joking around with you. keep looking for them. you never know what you might see. When I first started to see them they usually took the form of a balloon that would disappear like magic, but on January 10, 2008, I photographed this lobster like this one. They appear in the sky and then disappear and sometimes they talk to me, how's that for insane? Thanks to MUFON CMS
RICHMOND -- I'm not sure of the exact date, between July 1st, to 15th in 1947. I was only 9 yrs old, we lived near San Francisco and it was a sunny summer day. My Mom sent me to the local store. I was walking along the sidewalk and noticed the SUN wasn't as bright as it should be....I looked up and saw fast moving clouds, and started to notice the curved edge of a circle..kind of a pewter color. It was so BIG it seemed to cover the whole SKY as far as I could see in all directions.
It appeared in one section of the sky only to disappear and continuing the circle in another location. I saw another section of a circle. This kept up till I finally put it together that this was a complete circle and I could only see part at a time as the clouds rolled by and covered it and uncovered it. I asked grown-up, "What is it"?? They looked up but quickly looked away and gave me a funny look, because they didn't look long enough to see it. I asked a few others no one seemed to see it, but me? On the way back from the store it was still there.
It was a Huge UFO just like those in the movie Independence Day " and I have the movie poster on my Video room wall. The UFO in that movie is about the same size as the first one I saw. That was such a disturbing thing to happen to a small kid. Thanks to Barb V.
DAYTONA BEACH - A 32 year old Florida woman and several of her friends observed ann unusual aerial display in the skies on December 28, 2007. The Holly Hill woman reported that at 8:37 PM she and several friends watched as five UFOs flying in formation, heading towards Symrna Beach. They described the objects as being "white" and "horizontal" devoid of any discernible markings. The objects were in view for about 30 seconds as they "broke out of formation ... circling around one another at fast speeds ... moving erratically and moving very fast ... then just...gone." Anyone with additional information is asked to contact the UFO Research Center at UFORC.com. Thanks to Christopher Montgomery Executive Director UFORC International Global Network http://uforc.com/ufoap/
LAKE SUPERIOR -- I went outside for a smoke and noticed a flash and an object shaped like a triangle. The back of it looked like it was on fire and it streaked down towards Lake Superior going west really fast and then I lost sight of it because of the trees. Then about two minutes later, two F-18's were out circling around where I last saw the object. Then three more planes showed up about five minutes after I had last seen the object. The five planes then just circled for 20 minutes looking for something. Then a 30 passenger jet flew over the top of them going east and the five F-18's followed the larger jet and left the area. Thanks to MUFON CMS
OGDENSBURG -- On January 4, 2008, my son and I were around our van getting ready to deliver newspapers at 5:55 AM, when we both witnessed a bright blue flash that was in the shape of a ball about the size of my thumb at arm's length. It was bright bluish white light, with a sky blue ring around it. When I opened up the hatch on the van my son turned around and said did you see that! I said I did. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, http://www.hbccufo.org
FOSTORIA - George Ritter took this video of the UFOs near his home and this is a still image of a disc taking off from a nearby field. Thanks to George Ritter
TECUMSEH -- Lori Goat writes The recent sighting of an Unidentified Flying Object over a lake in Oklahoma City has put UFOs back on the public radar again. Pottawatomie County has had its share of strange lights in the sky. On New Year’s Eve at 7:45 PM, a retired Air Force operator and former AWACS crew member reported witnessing a bright light maneuvering unlike any known aircraft 2,000 feet above Tecumseh for about 40 seconds.

QUEBRADILLAS'S BARRIO CACAO -- Lucy Guzman reports, Mrs. N.R. reported the following to Ovni.Net "On December 18, 2007, we saw a brilliant light toward the south that changed colors and pulsed, remaining static. It was possible to see the colors red, green and blue, all very dim and at a great height. Today, January 12, 2008 at around 9 PM, we saw three brilliant lights moving in different directions toward the same vicinity -- south over the Guajataca River. I'd say. They joined and separated without following any specific pattern. They did this for an hour or more and suddenly vanished into infinity. She further reported that the sighting lasted nearly 90 minutes and was an enjoyable experience for all three. The objects were oval shaped and shining. (Translation (c) 2008, S. Corrales, IHU. Special thanks to Lucy Guzman, Ovni.net)
KNOXVILLE -- I was 16 years old in 1992, and lying down in my bed at 8 PM,. The lights were out and things were silent. Out of nowhere this extremely bright-glowing green ball of light was bouncing forcefully around the room. It went everywhere, bouncing from the ceiling to the floor, from wall to wall missing me from inches. I was terrified I couldn't speak, let alone scream. I just clutched the covers tight against my chest until it just went black again. I stayed there for twenty or so minutes too scared to move. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, http://www.hbccufo.org
This is colorized photo of a similar UFO taken over Rhode Island
STEPHENVILLE -- Jason Greywolf Leigh writes, "To give you a 'heads up' on a truly amazing 'UFO sighting' seen by me on January 8, 2008, and hundreds of other people saw a tremendous UFO not 60 miles from my home! And these are country folks who have never had even the slightest interest in seeing such oddities. Their local newspaper in Stephenville, Texas, was selling out like hot cakes when even a judge, respected citizens and a Pastor with his church members of all ages saw it as well! http://empiretribune.com/ Please tune in to my interview on http://xzone-radio.com
What they saw and what I saw were two different objects, although in the same part of the clear night sky! The Stephenville UFO was said by an experienced pilot and a navigational expert, to have been at least 1 mile long and 1/2 a mile wide! MOTHERSHIP? What I saw around the same time was higher up in the ENE clear sky and was like a blue star that was stationary and then zipped to the south, quick as that, although both my sighting and theirs were shortly thereafter pursued by two alleged F-16s! The next morning, Wednesday the 9th, the clear blue skies around Cleburne were being 'chem.-trailed' by four F-16s or other such military jets, making patterns that I took photos of. I haven't seen such activity since my videotaping of the UFOs from June of 1995 when there were eight jets combing the area in 'grid patterns'! Wishing you all the Best, Jason Greywolf Leigh http://jasonleigh.org/contentarticles.html
A Navy Veteran writes, "Today on KLBJ 590 radio, Jeff Ward brought up the topic of the Stephenville, Texas UFO sighting. He asked listeners to call in and express their opinion. I called in and said I was a US Navy Veteran and I have seen a few UFO’s and would like to express my opinion. They kept me on hold for three hours from 3:30 to 6:40 P.M. He would let callers on the radio that were non believers or callers that called UFO believers hillbillies or hicks but would not let me on the radio to express my opinion. If this does not show you that the media is biased, I do not know what to tell you. He obviously could not handle the truth from someone that was respectable and has an educated background. Someone that had actual experiences and has taken photos of his topic
Editor's Note: When I was in the Air Force we were asked to intercept unidentified's, bogeys, large radar returns etc. We were not told they were UFOs. We were just told to report what we saw. The radar returns from our airborne radar indicated they were large Motherships equivalent to flying aircraft carriers. It is my belief they were from other worlds or dimensions. Much of the media has closed minds about UFOs, but that is starting to change.
HOUSTON -- HBCC UFO Research Note: This is the second report from the Houston, Texas area where unknown objects/craft have been seen, and also many helicopters flying in the area of both sightings, so it appears that something is up.
My husband, Daughter and I were driving home from dinner on January 4, 2008, and I had already seen what looked like a plane outside my window but my husband slowed down and said, do y'all see that, what is that? It's not moving. I thought he was kidding, so we all started to look at it and we slowed down and the object was not moving. It was just hovering over a neighborhood, kind of high, but close enough to somewhat tell what it was. It had three white lights, two red lights, one would blink constantly and the other one would blink every now and then. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, http://www.hbccufo.org
AUSTIN - Michael writes, I got the first three pictures on January 11, 2008, yesterday and one of them is very interesting. You have to zoom in to see the outline of the shape. It is the second one, number 39, 1, 39 and 74. I got the other pictures today. I saw many strange things in the sky today. I saw many flickers of light popping in out. In most of the pictures I never saw the objects when taking them but it is in the area I saw reflections of light. I even got a couple of videos.
In the first one you can tell I saw it, I did stabilize myself as best as I could. In the second video you see the object pop in and out while taking the video. I continue to see these reflections in the sky. This has been going on for some time now. I even saw something very strange today. It looked like a mist or dirty cloud. I could kind of see through it. It was as big and as long as a bus, but more cigar shaped. I saw it going by my building and had to hurry into the parking lot to watch it go over and past the building. Really weird looking. This is a new one for me. I used a 2 mega pixel camera, Casio Esilim. Thanks to Michael
BUENOS AIRES -- My Nephew took two almost consecutives pictures of the clouds on January 11, 2008. When he downloaded those pictures he realized there was an object on the right side above the cables in the second shot. Pay attention to a hole in the clouds that appears in the second photograph, it does not appear in the previous shot. We do not know the identity of the object. Those photographs were taken in, Ciudad de Isidro Casanova Buenos Aires, Argentina. Thanks to MUFON CMS
QUEENSLAND -- I have seen three UFO's during my 33 years of life. In 1982, I saw a pulsating orange orb 35 feet in diameter only meters away from me on Fraser Island.
In 1993, a craft (35 ft diameter) spitting out colored lights into the ocean off Scarborough Beach Queensland. In 1998, six glowing lights hovered around exploring for two hours in the same location.
But one thing that has always baffled me is a memory as a three year old boy. I was in bed and remember a big round ugly head floating in my room. I was frozen with fear. It spoke to me, then disappeared. Its image is so clear in my head I can draw it today. When I was about 14 years old I drew a picture of its face and told my father about this event. My Dad was in shock of my story for he had seen the exact same thing floating in his room when he was 16 years of age. (He was also frozen with fear at the time). If anyone else has had a similar story or can shed light to this I would be very grateful.
ADELAIDE -- I was on my balcony in Port Adelaide at just after 12 AM, early Boxing Day , December 26, 2007 and saw three lights moving slowly towards the northwest which appeared to be in triangular formation. A fourth light appeared just ahead of the three, the light ahead started to move quicker and soon appeared to be traveling at speed. They slowly flickered/blinked off and they were gone. I estimate my total viewing time at around 5 minutes. The captured video is just over 3 minutes. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, http://www.hbccufo.org
SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN - On January 5, 2008, at 7:30 AM, I saw a bright light like a star tto the west. It was constantly moving fast towards my house. I thought it was a star and the clouds were moving fast. I looked again and the clouds were moving slow compared to the light. The light was almost above me to the south. I looked underneath it and saw complete white light.
There was a bright silver white light that radiated thick rays of light in 360 degrees like a slightly squashed circle. I went down the stairs of the deck and around the house to see more, but it went almost out of sight real fast flying east and becoming dimmer. I did not see an object because the light was too bright.
SCARBOROUGH, ONTARIO -- I was walking home from work admiring the sky on January 2, 2008, at 5:45 PM. I noticed what looked to be an extremely large aircraft. I kept an eye on it because it was unusually bright for an aircraft and didn't have any other navigation lights or markings, When I hit the major intersection I stopped to see what it was doing as it had not moved in my 15 minutes of walking to the bus stop. As I watched it, I noticed that it hovered, slightly moving off to the right, then the left. I thought maybe it was a traffic helicopter or some small plane but I've never seen an aircraft just stay stagnant without changing elevation or direction. At this time, I noticed towards the left of the craft a similar craft but I kept my eyes on the closer one as it had still not moved. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, http://www.hbccufo.org
ST. CROIX. U.S -- Enroute from St Croix to San Juan I observed one then two more other objects traveling at very high rates of speed at 7:30 PM. One object then stopped and hovered and was joined by two other objects. They then proceeded to fly in triangle formation on December 1987. Roosevelt Roads Navy Base then dispatched two fighters to investigate. The objects then took off a great rate of speed. One straight up, one to the east, one to the west. I'm an airline pilot that at the time had 10 years of flying experience and over 6000 hours of flight. Today with over 30 years of flying and 19,800 hours of flying my feeling is that these objects were not manmade. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, http://www.hbccufo.org
I had a UFO encounter a few years ago, when shortly after lunch I saw a silver bullet about 200 meters in front of me floating. It made no noise and it did not move. The day was very windy, so I do not believe that it was a weather balloon. After 5 minutes it disappeared in the clouds. I do not know if it was an alien space ship, but for me it was an UFO! Thanks to Carsten
CHICHEN ITZA -- Photo taken on December 18, 2007 by Judith Trujillo, a Mexican national residing in Canada. The witness visited Mexico to see her family, and during a tour of the Chichen Itza archaeological site, she took photos of the Mayan ruins. Only one of those photos displays what could be an unidentified flying object, which was not visible when the shutter was pressed to capture an image of the Kukulkan Pyramid, also known as El Castillo.
Ana Luisa Cid reports that there are two options regarding this image:
1) There was indeed a UFO at the pyramid: If we accept this possibility, we must bear in mind that some researchers have associated these archaeological sites with UFO visitations.
2) An ordinary element out of focus: It is possible that a bird or insect slipped into the photo, appearing blurry by virtue of being out of focus. When focusing on a distant object, elements in the foreground usually become blurred. Judith Trujillo employed an Olympus Digital UD600-S600 at a normal setting and at ISO 64. (Translation (c) 2008, S. Corrales, Special thanks to Ana Luisa Cid)
TULUM, QUINTANA ROO -- On December 27 or 28, I saw a bright round ball in the sky about 7 PM, that traveled a very short distance and disappeared. I looked for it to see if it was a satellite or a plane but there was no further trace of it in the sky.
TULUM, QUINTANA ROO -- I live off the beach on the Caribbean. I was at the beach closing the gate on January 7, 2008, at 8:00 PM, and near the horizon a very large fiery ball traveled towards the earth for three seconds and then disappeared midway very slowly. This was the second sighting. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, http://www.hbccufo.org
BOEKEL -- UFO followed us for 26 km from my friend's bosses house in Oeffelt to our front door. It was June 22, 1996 on a Saturday when we drove to a fellows farmhouse, (names removed) boss it was the night that Holland had to play France in the European championships. It was around twelve o'clock when my friend and I decided to leave. We thanked our host and walked outside immediately saw a disk like object with many lights under it circling above the farm house. It was nothing that I've ever seen before and I said to my friend, "Hey look at that!" Imagine if you will total darkness on an old farm house road, no houses, just a country road the highway was four or five miles away. We stepped inside the car and drove west towards a major road. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, http://www.hbccufo.org

RENHOLD, BEDFORD - Five orange lights were sighted in a string in the SW on December 31, 2007, a few minutes before the New Year. They moved purposely to overhead, near the constellation of Orion at 11:45 PM. The first three formed a triangle and the remaining two seemed to touch. They gradually faded or moved away. Three lights more were sighted directly afterwards in the SW again. They moved in a triangular formation again as before. All objects were round and orange/yellow in color and not aircraft or fireworks. They were silent. The whole episode lasted about 30 minutes from 11:45 to 00:15 and witnessed by at least 20 people.
BEVERLEY, YORKSHIRE - On January 1, 2008, two orange lights hovered then moved across thhe sky in a northeasterly direction 12:15 to 1:00 AM. They traveled a short distance at the same speed keeping a constant distance from each other, then changed course, appearing to recede into space. Then another one came and did the same. They became so frequent and were so clear we ignored them for a while but at 1 o'clock they were still there. We jokingly said they were UFOs.

SCUNTHORPE, LINCOLNSHIRE -- There was a round shape in the sky above the woods nearby our home on January 3, 2008, at 5 AM. There was one main light which was stationary, and other smaller lights appeared to be going across it that were moving slowly and kept changing sides. It was quite high in the sky and looked very unusual. It was there for three minutes and when we went to get some binoculars, it vanished.
CAMBRIDGE, CAMBRIDGESHIRE -- After leaving a New Year's Eve party, I was walking in the middle of Sleaford street in Cambridge, just before the Geldart pub and noticed three orange lights in the sky, in a triangle formation. They were moving at speed, no noise could be heard, and have several witnesses. I even called the friend who hosted the party, and he saw two lights. I did not have my camera with me at the time, so I have taken some pictures later and added the lights in Photoshop to try and reproduce what I saw: *Reproduction Of The Lights* TV/Radio The Cambridge Evening News have contacted me in with views of writing an article about my sighting.

BEWDLEY -- Parasearch, a Worcestershire based paranormal research group, are investigating reports of a ghost train seen along the track near the Northwood Lane at Bewdley. Over the years the group has received a number of reports of a phantom steam train along the that stretch of the track. Four people were killed during the making of the Bewdley Tunnel in the 1880s but railway officials claim the sightings can be explained.
The Northwood Lane area of the track has been closed to trains since the summer floods when 45 sections of the railway between Bewdley and Bridgnorth were damaged by torrential downpours.
A train was allegedly seen late at night by a group of people who said they heard the tracks vibrate and saw a ghostly shimmering haze. Parasearch chairman David Taylor said: “ Reports of ghostly steam trains are quite uncommon, which makes these reports from Bewdley so interesting.
