Texas UFO Flap

This week’s files cover: National Press Club UFO Conference Transcript about Chile, Japanese Space Agency photos of the Moon Moon Tower and Statue on Mars.

Unidentified Aerial Phenomena were spotted over: Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, New Jersey, Maryland, Massachusetts, Missouri, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, West Virginia, and Wyoming. UFOs were also seen in Australia, Canada, Turkey, 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.

More than half (56 percent) of the American public think that UFOs are something real and not just in people's imagination. Nearly as many (48 percent) believe that UFOs have visited earth in some form 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.

National Press Club UFO Conference Transcript Chile

Commander and Fighter Pilot of the Chilean Air Force (Ret). Rodrigo Bravo Garrido stated,

Since the beginning of Chilean history, there have been reports of unidentified phenomena, sometimes called UFOs, observed in our skies. Over the years, we have increased our capacity to explain many of the sightings, but some continue to remain without a scientific or logical explanation.

For that reason, in October of 1997, the Department of Civil Aeronautics, the Chilean equivalent of the American FAA, set up the Committee for the Study of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena, known as the CEFAA. This agency handles the best reports of unidentified aerial phenomena in cooperation with aeronautic specialists. In 2000, the Aviation branch of the Army of Chile assigned me to research anomalous aerial phenomena, which they knew were real, and their affect on aerospace security. I then graduated to become a military pilot, and learned that the Aviation Army had in its files many reports of UFO incidents from military pilots. A link was then established between our Army office and the CEFAA, and as a result, nine official cases have been documented. This has helped to create awareness among the flight crews about UFOs, and they now cooperate with flight security to report any abnormal situation.

One of our most important civil aviation cases occurred in 1988, showing that unidentified flying objects can be a danger for air operations.

A Boeing 737 pilot, on a final approach to the runway at the Tepual Airport in Puerto Montt City, suddenly encountered a large white light surrounded by green and red. The light was moving in the opposite direction of the airplane, coming straight at it. The pilot had to make a steep turn to the left in order to avoid a collision. The phenomenon was observed by the control tower personnel. In 2000, the crew of a Chilean plane from the Aviation branch of the Army, flying South of Santiago, observed a long cigar-shaped object, a brilliant gray.

It flew parallel to the right side of the aircraft for two minutes and then disappeared at a very high speed. This object was detected by the radar of the Control Center of Santiago which notified the crew minutes before the incident. Sadly, the UFO subject has been contaminated with false information, out of touch with reality, provided by unqualified people to the media. This has moved the issue away from a scientific and specialized study where it belongs. In light of that problem, we now make the call to all the countries that are presently working on this issue in a serious and factual way, to unite their efforts. We would like this to include the United States of America.

This cooperative effort would help all of us counteract the potentially unsafe effects of UFOs on air operations around the world. New cases are being documented by pilots, traffic controllers, operations staff at the world's airports, and by many others with the proper training to determine if a flying object is something unusual. The true origin of these UFOs is unknown, yet they do affect aviation all around the planet, and this must be addressed. Thanks to Leslie Kean www.freedomofinfo.org and Art Greenfield.

Japanese Space Agency New photos of the Moon

The Japanese Salene-Kaguya explorer provides High Definition video of the moon. JAXA (Japanese Space Agency) has released High Definition video showing the surface of the moon and earthrise. These are part of the ongoing releases from the Salene probe that is currently in lunar orbit. There is an apparent lens flair on the image. http://jda.jaxa.jp/jda/v4_e.php?v_id=5d30b1e02b2eb7fe4ee8f395ac3fa98f&mode=search&genre=4&category=4064&mission=4067

Moon Tower

The US Clementine satellite captured this image of a tower on our moon. The Japanese Salene-Kaguya explorer satellite should provide High Definition video of this area of the moon at 70 Latitude and 137 Longitude.

J. P. Skipper writes, "As you can see in the above image, this is probably the most massive tall towering object visible in and drawn from the official military Clementine science data. It is a colossal object that dwarfs and dominates everything else in the nearby terrain many times over."The many smaller scale smooth blotchy areas scattered all around in this scene's terrain are digital blur and smudge image tampering applications done at differing resolution levels.

These break up and mask the true surface details and hide specific evidence of something in this terrain as well as break up the terrain in favor of false detail and any familiar frame of reference objects in it that might tip us off to the true size scale here. All of the Clementine imaging in the lighter color areas so prevalent on the far side is covered in this type of alternating light and dark color tampering that breaks up organized patterns, natural or artificial, into this mostly chaotic meaningless jumble and lack of true detail." Visit the excellent website for more details: http://www.marsanomalyresearch.com/evidence-reports/2004/068/moon-objects.htm Thanks to J. P. Skipper

Editor's Note: The world waits for non smudged images or the area from JAXA (Japanese Space Agency). Three high ranking Japanese officials including the Minister of State for Defense Shigeru Ishiba, Education and Science Minister Kisaburo Tokai, and Chief Cabinet Secretary Nobutaka Machimura have announced, they personally believe UFOs exist. Defense Minister Ishiba stated, "He was looking at how Japan's military could respond to aliens under the pacifist Constitution. There are no grounds for us to deny that there are unidentified flying objects [UFOs] and some life-form that controls them."

We can speculate that these comments at this time would indicate they have already seen some of the Salene-Kaguya satellite images showing artificial structures on the moon.

Mars Unlikely to be Hit by Asteroid

Chances appear to be dwindling for an asteroid to hit Mars to about a 1 in 30 chance. Scientists hoped to watch the asteroid create a crater a half mile wide on Mars. It would create a Crater about the size of Meteor Crater into northern Arizona. The ejecta might reveal information on the sub surface of Mars and the amount of water hiding beneath the surface. NASA's MRO probe and its High-Resolution Imaging Experiment (HiRISE) camera would be in prime position for a Martian collision and be able to get an image down to three feet.

Mars Statue

Mars Exploration R over Spirit panorama images shows a statue on Mars.

The figure differs significantly from the surrounding terrain and appears much like the famous statue of the Little Mermaid in Denmark. Thanks to Robert Blevins - AB of Seattle. http://adventurebooks.newsvine.com/

Arizona - Flying Triangle

These pictures were taken Friday and Friday night of January 18, 2008.. #1 picture was taken with a canon from inside my home. I noticed two strange objects north of my home. One object looks like a triangle. It so happens that picture 2 also shows a very large triangle just above the tree. This picture was taken with a Sony camera the night of picture 1. I noticed some strange lights just above the tree and reached for the camera. I had no clue that the object was so large. the trees are large pine tree. This object had to be huge. Thanks to MUFON CMS.

California Star-Like UFOs and Photos

MT. WHITNEY -- Three months after taking these pictures on September 8, 2007, about 7 PM, I finally got around to looking at this particular batch of images. After making some adjustments to them (contrast, highlights, shadows, color), I noticed an object in three of the pictures. They were taken from the White Mountains looking at the Sierra Nevada Mts. to the west. I used a Nikon D200 digital camera with a 400mm lens. The peaks in the pictures are in the vicinity of Mt. Whitney. To the left of the peak on the right is something that doesn't appear to move at all in the time the pictures were taken. There is a fourth image of the same scene taken about a minute before the others. It does not have the object in it. These were taken within an hour of sunset.

Comments: UFOs Northwest has received many photos of objects whereby the photographer did not see the object until viewing the photo. This is another one of those photos. I don't know for sure what the dark object is in the above photo, but it could be a bird or an airplane. Enlarging the area doesn't reveal any more detail about shape. Thanks to Bill Puckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com

SAN DIEGO -- On January 13, 2008, around 4:30 PM, four of us were standing outside at patio. While I was looking above to see the moon we noticed three very tiny star like bright objects moving at a very fast speed. They were very, very far. There were four of us who could see these flying objects and could distinguish they were definitely not planes or stars. They were moving across North to South direction.I went in and brought my binoculars and could observe one of them had triangular shape. The shape for the other two was not very clear. Within moments we also started observing three more moving objects following them (Total 6). One of them was blinking red.

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA -- I looked up in the hillside on January 17, 2008, 8:30 p.m., at the east end of Saddleback Mountain and noticed two pulsating lights over the mountain. They were changing from white to red disappearing and then reappearing in a different location and changing altitude and direction at very high speed. They were flying similar to a helicopter pattern but they made turns a helicopter would not make. I got my neighbors and family to come out and see it. Has anyone else seen this activity in the sky tonight. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, http://www.hbccufo.org

Florida - Bird and UFO

ST PETERSBURG -- I was at work on January 2, 2008. About midday I went out on the loading dock for a short break, I noticed a bird gliding overhead and I decided to take a picture of the bird. After a few days I uploaded the picture to my computer. While looking at the picture I noticed something above the bird, which I didn't notice while taking the picture. I zoomed in to get a closer look, and it appears to be a UFO.

KEY WEST -- I have a photo that I took in Key West, in August of 2006 of the sky. I thought that the clouds were pretty and then some images showed up. I am not sure if the bright circles are in the sky or on the lens. I am sending them to you for your evaluation.

Comments: The witness does not recall the exact date of the sighting. I thought possibly that the light in the photo could be the planet Venus, but this cannot be verified because the date of the photo is not known. The light also could be a reflection on the camera lens.

Illinois - UFO

FAR OAKS -- At approximately 8 PM, on January 16, 2008, I took my dog out for a walk on a relatively clear night to a large cornfield. The cross street is Old Collinsville Road and my dog likes this empty lot and while she was sniffing around I glanced up and thought I saw an airplane flying low to the ground. The plane appeared to behave strangely--- suddenly zooming up and then going low. I kept watching and then it started coming towards me, and I could not believe what I saw! I am not 100% certain but I think it was gray and had two bright white lights in front. On the side there was a red flashing light. I think triangle shaped is the best description, but it was dark and I was freaked out and can't be 100% sure. Also, it was silent.

I panicked and ran home as it appeared to hover behind me. While I was running I was too afraid to look back. There were lots of lights on in several homes and one house seemed to be having a party but I was too embarrassed to knock on the door about a UFO. I then watched the UFO from my driveway. It continued to go high and low and I couldn't find binoculars and didn't have a camera. However, within about 30 minutes there were several airplanes in the sky and a large, very loud craft that I suspect was a military helicopter. This craft was definitely chasing the UFO and stayed in the area back tracking for at least 40 minutes. There seemed to be an unusual number of airplanes in the sky last night.

I lost sight of the object because I was too afraid to get in my car and follow it. For the record, I have always believed in the existence of UFO's. However, I NEVER expected to see one up close!! I don't read about UFOs or watch TV specials about them. This is all quite unbelievable to me!!!!!) Thanks to MUFON CMS

Indiana - Aircraft Give Chase to Triangular UFO

DENVER -- Around 9:00 PM my son was coming home from the store on January 16, 2008, and saw what appeared to be a very large triangular object above our home. He flashed his vehicle lights at the object and it turned as if to acknowledge that it saw him. He rushed into the house to get us. We all went on the front porch. By this time the object was still low but had moved nearer to the neighbors farm. It made no noise but it appeared to change shapes from time to time. It could move fast or just hover. The lights changed from time to time as well. We saw 3 or 4 different airplanes that continued to circle the "UFO" and gave chase after the UFO left. Everyone in our community saw the object at least: 25 witnesses as well as people in neighboring towns saw it as well. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, http://www.hbccufo.org

Iowa - Bright Pulsing Star-Like Object

ALTOONA -- I was at work on January 5, 2008 Time: 9:30 p.m., and as I was leaving a bright pulsing star-like object appeared. I followed it for a while and then it just suddenly vanished. There is no way something could just disappear without a trace. I was amazed ! Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, http://www.hbccufo.org

Maryland - Very Large Cylinder of Light

WASHINGTON, DC -- While driving south on 270 on December 16, 2007, at 11:00 PM about 40 miles from DC, I saw a very large beam of light appear on the horizon to the southeast. I could tell this beam of light was about five miles away because I could see the outline of the hill in front of it. Visibility that night was clear but the clouds were low enough that when the light appeared I could clearly see where it met the clouds.

It was huge, as if there were a thousand spotlights all in the same spot turned on at the same time for just a second; then it was gone. The FedEx football stadium is in that general direction but there were no football games that night, and even when there are I've never seen a large cylinder of light shining above, around or through that area. I called local radio stations and T.V. news stations to report this. Above is an excellent diagram the witness made. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, http://www.hbccufo.org

Massachusetts – Crescent Shaped/Boomerang Bright Light

WESTPORT – On January 21, 2007, we were awake with our baby at 4:45/5 AM, and looked out over the river and my husband and I saw a bright light in the dark sky. There were no stars near it, no city lights and it was before sunrise. It looked as though orange, yellow, white colors were fading in and out of the light when we saw it. We looked at it through binoculars and it was bright and steady for a good 45 minutes before we finished feeding our son and going back to sleep- we woke up at 7 and the sun was up and it was gone.

Missouri - UFO Sightings and Close Encounter

BRANSON WEST – I was watching a white star like object "hovering" in the sky on January 18, 2008. I had seen these "brilliant white stars," but they look "different" and other "pulsating blue and red stars" before, starting in June, 2007. They will be hovering all night, sometimes two or three. But as I watched this one around 5:50 AM, it began to move. This was the first time I actually saw one move! It slowly started moving in a straight upward direction. Then, suddenly it just switched to moving in an easterly direction, now faster. I ran up an around the building it was going over to watch it. It moved way out, and was very small, but it was still there. Then it suddenly "appeared" larger and closer again, and just "hovered" for about 15 minutes. At that time a car and a State Trooper car pulled into the parking lot, maybe because they were seeing it also. The State Trooper car stayed for about 5 minutes more, then turned back and went in back from where they came also. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, http://www.hbccufo.org

Nevada Elongated Triangle

MESQUITE COLLEGE -- I was in the parking lot with a friend from 5:20 to 5:35 PM, on November 21, 2007, when I observed what was first thought to be a strange exhaust pattern of a jet in the night sky. However, there was no sound and it was moving too slow, so I pointed it out to my friend. It was a flying/floating barge with an elongated triangle shape, color was dark gray and huge! Perhaps 250 - 300 feet long and the butt end was about 150' - 200' wide. No running lights except for a single strobe which was emitted once from the snout. It was about 2 – or 3 miles southwest of my position over the river at an elevation of 2,400' to 3,000' moving south and turning southwest. A small plane with running lights crossed over it going west to east It got too dark to see it. Had to get into class anyways. I'd love to have one of these "Sky Yachts"!!! http://www.space.com/businesstechnology/flying_triangle_040902.html

New Jersey - Craft Twenty Feet Away

SECAUCUS -- My friend and I were driving towards my house, after Christmas shopping, on Paterson Plank Road in Secaucus. We look over to our left, and both of us, at the same time, were in utter amazement at what we saw. It was a huge UFO...the same size as the ranch style home it hovered over. It was stainless steel in color, oval shaped, and there was a large white light, like a search light looking for something, going over the entire roof. There were a couple of green colored lights on the back end of the craft. We pulled over and we were right across the street from it. I was driving, so I got out and my friend came to my side of the car.

I know it sounds weird but I wanted to get closer. It made no sound at all. Paterson Plank Road is a main road and, yet, no one was around. We started to cross the road and we got to the double yellow lines, it was gone in a flash. Of course we stood and stared at each other like "What the heck?" Thank God we were both there, otherwise we might have thought we were nuts!! Thanks to MUFON MCS

Oregon - Very Bright Light

BEAVERTON -- Last night around 10:30 PM, January 14, 2008, there was a really weird bright light (s) up in the sky. I thought maybe it was the mars asteroid or a satellite that was really close to earth. I looked on the news this morning trying to find out what it was, but all I found was a story of UFO's in Texas. The object seemed stationary but there were at times multiple lights, maybe turning? It was there for a long time. I noticed it about 10:30 in an area next to my tree, by about 12:00. It was centered in the tree branches, earth revolving? It was so bright that when I called my dad out his first reaction was to ask me if it could be the moon, but we could see the moon also. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, http://www.hbccufo.org

Pennsylvania - Flat, Black Object

PHILADELPHIA -- I was standing on my backyard deck facing south towards Center City on March 3, 2007, at 8 PM. I observed a large flat, black object floating or gliding from west to east towards the Delaware River which runs north to south in my area. The object was about the size of a school bus but flat, four or five feet in thickness and almost completely black. It had a wing or fin like protrusion near the middle, but not completely in the middle. It was about 100 yards from me and only about 80 feet up in the sky completely silent. I could see it only because the moonlight was reflecting off it. It was moving slowly at approximately 15 MPH. I was so surprised it stopped me in my tracks and by the time I ran back in my house to get a camera it was gone. I started to think it might have been an airplane with no lights on, but I have never seen any airplane like this. Airplanes that fly over generally fly north to south and never that low. This was not an airplane.

Comments: The witness has drawn an object somewhat resembling a boomerang. The object was only visible due to the moonlight. The weather report shows that skies were partly cloudy, but given that the moon was full some moonlight must have shined between the clouds to illuminate the object. Objects with slow movement, lack of sound, and shape are frequently reported. The identity of these objects remains unknown. Thanks to Bill Puckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com

Texas - 125+ Flying Objects Spotted

DUBLIN -- Steve Hudgeons, the Assistant State Director of Texas reports, "We were well received today in Dublin Texas and treated with respect by the media due to the type of questions that were asking. There was an estimated 500 people total and we had 50 sets of the MUFON form one. All the forms were used and we then had to use a makeshift front page of form one.

Each of the six investigators averaged seven interviews in a four hour time period. Each investigator will enter the info into the CMS and then make a report of their findings. In the past three days the Texas CMS has spiked with an average of 18 reports a day that I haven't looked at as yet. I have asked the Dublin people if we might return in a few weeks for another interview of the witnesses still at large. They were very happy to hear this and agreed.

One of the interesting aspects is that we are getting current and old sighting information from this area. We may be here investigating for a good while. Thanks to Steve Hudgeons, Senior Field Investigator, Section Director Tarrant County

This map prepared by Steve Riechmuth shows some of the sightings in the last several weeks in Texas. A large mothership was observed and these normally launch a series of smaller craft.

STEPHENVILLE -- A pilot, policeman and local business owners are among those who insist they saw a huge silent object with bright lights flying low and fast over the town of Stephenville, 60 miles south west of Fort Worth. Some said they saw fighter jets chasing the craft, which was mostly spotted on one evening - January 8. Unconvinced, local people insist the object was larger, quieter, faster and closer to the ground than an airplane.

Steve Allen, a pilot and freight company owner, described the object he saw as a mile long and half a mile wide. "It was positively, absolutely nothing from these parts," he said."People wonder what in the world it is because this is the Bible Belt, and everyone is afraid it's the end of times." " I am a pilot and have been flying for 30 years and have never seen anything like this. I also fly several times a week in the area. The craft is NOT from around these parts! Ricky Sorrells, a machinist, looking through his rifle's telescopic sights said, "I saw a flat and seamless metallic object hovering about 300 feet over a field. We never heard any noise from the craft! They headed west towards Abilene but about ten minutes later the craft came again with two jets chasing it headed east towards Ft. Worth, TX, at about 4000 feet. The jets were unable to catch and went off into the distance at full throttle.

Stephenville Empire Tribune has run a series of articles about the sightings and Larry King, CNN, Fox, ABC News and others have picked up the story.

Mysterious sightings keep locals guessing

By ANGELIA JOINER Staff Writer
Friday, January 11, 2008 11:30 AM CST

A number of area residents have come forward saying they also saw the mysterious lights witnessed by Steve Allen and friends Tuesday night in Selden.

“It was like nothing I've ever seen before,” comes up over and over in their descriptions of bright lights in the sky. Accounts have come in from various locations and a few of those brave enough to come forward are listed below with stories of their own.

Major Karl Lewis of Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth (Carswell Field) believes he might be able to solve the mystery in a couple of days. Allen said his phone rang all day Wednesday with people reporting to him that they had seen the strange lights in the sky.

Dublin Constable Lee Roy Gaitan reports, “I was outside with my eight-year-old son, Ryan, when I saw lights. It was like nothing I've ever seen before. It was dark already. At first it was two red burning glows that went away and then came back on. I went inside to tell my wife. When I came back out I saw something like lights you'd see in a bar. My little boy and I counted and we came up with nine flashes and they were real spread out. But I couldn't see them attached to anything, just the lights. So I went to my pickup and got my binoculars to see if I could see a plane or something.

Even with the binoculars there was no outline. It started moving towards Stephenville and moving so fast I had trouble following it with my binoculars. It covered a big area. It sounds crazy but we really saw what we saw. As a matter of fact I mentioned it to an officer in Stephenville and he called me up and said to get the Stephenville paper because I wasn't going to believe what was in it. I also went to the Dublin paper but they had no other reports on it so I just dropped it. But my little boy went to school the next day and told everybody all about what we'd seen.” Snip.

HASKELL – I was driving northbound on US 277, at about 5:45 p.m. on January 17, 2008, when an oncoming, southbound Haskell Police Department cruiser pulled over and stopped, causing me to look west when I saw an object. I believe the Haskell PD officer had pulled over in order to observe this. I continued driving north and had to alternate my focus on the road to the north, but I mostly continued monitoring the object off to the west. I briefly took my eyes off it about five times to check the road north of me, but the object was continually there in about the same position in the sky each time I resumed monitoring it. The final time I took my eyes off it to check the road, it had completely vanished when I looked back at it.

The event totaled about 20 seconds. The sky was mostly clear, and the object was very metallic and bright, apparently from the setting sun shining off it. It may have been moving the whole time but seemed stationary until suddenly vanishing. It could not possibly have been an airliner, a weather balloon, etc. I'm very skeptical of UFO sightings, so my very first thought was that even though it certainly seemed like a "flying saucer," it surely must be something else, like a weather balloon. I literally was trying to identify it as something else the whole time, but this was not possible. Very interested to know if the Haskell PD officer saw it too. Thanks to MUFON CMS

ERATH COUNTY --We left together from fiancé's house driving down the road and saw it on January 19, 2008. It was somewhat over in the Greenveiw additions. I went the wrong way, I should have gone and turned left on 377 and turned left on Harbon Road went over rail road tracks drove by swan stand noticed it to the left of us about. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, http://www.hbccufo.org

ROUND ROCK – Michael writes, "On January 14, 2008, I saw a reflection in the sky and had to get my camera. I was wondering if these UFOs are following me or is it that they are always everywhere? I would have to go with the later. I always take 5 pictures of everything and this time I got this object in every picture/frame moving from left to right. Round Rock is 140 miles south of Stephenville. Thanks to Michael

West Virginia - Hovering Light Pattern

NEAR FLATWOODS -- I saw lights hovering at tree top level, on the west side of I-79. On January 12, 2008, at 9:15 PM EST. The lights were white and did not move. Our car passed by and I could not determine what the lights could have belonged to.

Comments: Who knows what these lights are? The drawing shows a strange pattern of lights. However, given that the sighting was at night and the lights were only briefly seen from a moving car makes identification more difficult. Thanks to Bill Puckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com

Wyoming - Disklike Object

CHEYENNE -- The attached photo was taken while visiting my son at his horse ranch just outside of Cheyenne, on June 10, 2007, at 12:37 PM. Photo shows few cumulus clouds probably with bases about 4,000 feet.

Comments: The witness did not see the object until he viewed the photos on his camera. An Olympus Digital D-540 Zoom camera with maximum resolution of 3.2 megapixels was used to take the photo. Enlarging the photo plus increasing the brightness and contrast has not revealed a conventional object. The sun is evident reflecting off what appears to be a metallic surface. I do vnot believe that the object is a balloon, bird, or regular aircraft. The object has an oval shape.

Australia - Small Dot of Light

BAYSIDE MELBOURNE -- On January 13, 2008, at 9:50 PM, I was having a cigarette with my friend in my yard. We both looked up at a bright dot moving across the sky. It looked very high, almost not in atmosphere. It was very clear, no clouds, no wind. We called for everyone there to come and look but my nephew only came outside. It made no sound, had no wing lights that flashed. As it passed over and got about 3/4 the way across the horizon, it seemed to move side to side slowly, not far aside in distance, and then very quickly turned into a really small dot, either because of the angle across the atmosphere or because of speed. either way, it was not normal. This was not our first sighting. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, http://www.hbccufo.org

Canada - Strange Lights in the Sky (UFO)

BOLTON, ONTARIO – On January 2, 2008, at about 6 PM, I experienced a sighting while picking up my Mom who lives Highway 50 and Rutherford area just south of Bolton to bring her to my house in Richmond Hill. When we were driving to Rutherford (going east towards RHILL) I saw over in the distance to the south similar lights as described in your article of Jan 2 about a sighting in Scarborough (there was more than 1 that's for sure) The lights stood still. They did not move and made a weird shape in the sky. Both my mom and I witnessed these lights around 6:00pm. I am not sure if this was the same time as you. Gosh weird. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, http://www.hbccufo.org

EDMONTON, ALBERTA -- On January 18, 2008, at 7:55 AM, I was driving northbound on a dull lit morning shortly after dawn and saw flashing bright lights like a strobe. It was at a great distance from me and I could not make out the shape. The lights were silver and blue and very sharp and bright emitted at such a far distance-too sharp and flashing too quickly perhaps for a plane. I am guessing the object was 3 km away and maybe 1/2 a kilometer up. The lights were too brilliant for a plane that far away especially on a misty morning. I stopped at a red light and I was able to see the object longer as it moved across the horizon from east to west quickly. It was too fast for a plane covering a distance of 2-3 km in about 6 seconds. Then, the object suddenly stopped in mid-flight-hovering and turned a bright orange glow with its lights larger than a plane. It was one big orange light encompassing the entire object-definitely not a plane. It sat there for about three seconds, then it started moving returning to its original strobing silvery-blue lights as it headed east but at a slower speed this time. I parked on the side of the road to view it longer but the object headed northeast and eventually disappeared.

ORILLIA, ONTARIO -- On January 16, 2008, I was scraping the ice off the car when I saw three white lights and one red light traveling from west to east at 5:03 AM. The red light was rotating, but no green or white strobing lights were seen. It was moving too slow to be a jet or plane.. There was no sound and asked my wife to get out of the car and look. I'd say it flew at 10,000 feet maybe? If you held a Toonie in your fingers at arm's length, you would get the size of it. I believe the shape of the craft was triangular.

Turkey - UFO Video with Images of Extraterrestrial

XORNAL GALICIA -- A video was recorded that, in addition to a UFO, shows images of two extraterrestrial ones, affirmed to the head of the Turkish Center of Ufología, Haktan Akdogan, mentioned, by the television network NTV. The author of this tape is the guard of an urbanization of villas, who spent long time hunting for UFOs, and he obtained a recording of the extraterrestrial images of a strange aircraft. The video was 22 minutes of duration, in which the contours of a flying object are perceived clearly. Akdogan tape clearly shows a UFO with a shining metallic surface". The tape shows silhouettes of two representatives of extraterrestrial civilizations." http://mx.youtube.com/watch?v=YCoB_WY-UJg Commentary. It appears these "beings" come from another planet.

UK - Flash and then a Circular UFO

SLOUGH BUCKS -- I was outside in the garden putting out the rubbish, when there was a super white flash in the upper atmosphere followed by the appearance of a circular object on January 16, 2008, at 11.30 PM. It looked like either heat shimmer or liquid light? It had a crisp hard edge to it against the darkness of the sky and it stayed for about 2-3 seconds and as quick as it appeared, it vanished with a little blink. It only wobbled a tiny bit all the two seconds it was there and it didn't fly or move around the sky. In terms of size, it was about a quarter of the moon's size. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, http://www.hbccufo.org

LONG EATON, NOTTINGHAM – I witnessed a glowing spherical object traveling west to east, first time earlier to this date was more whiter light. Second time an orange light with constant speed and was not a jet. At first I put it down to being the space station. I saw the news tonight about a sighting in Bolsover which prompted me to check this site out and found the same thing seen from Toton/Nottingham which would be in the line of sight of the object and just a mile away.
