UFOs Changed History

This week’s files cover: How UFOs Changed the World History of Communism, and US Jet Intercepts Ballistic Missile for First Time.

Unidentified Aerial Phenomena were spotted over: Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington.

UFOs were also seen in Australia, Canada, Chile, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, 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.

UFOs Changed Communist World History

The history of the world was changed by UFOs visiting Ronald Reagan and the USSR. Aliens have frequently mentioned their fear of world destruction in their contacts with abductees and apparently worked to lessen this threat.

Less than twenty years ago the world was locked in the Cold War between the US and the USSR. The two super powers could have literally destroyed the world with an exchange of thousands of nuclear weapons.

Ronald Reagan liked to say, "God has a plan for everything." He and Nancy were expected at a casual dinner party with friends in Hollywood when they were first married and showed up a half hour later quite upset. They stated that they had seen a UFO coming down the coast.

In 1974, California Governor Ronald Reagan stated, "I was in a plane last week when I looked out the window and saw this white light. It was zigzagging around." "I went up to the pilot and said, "Have you ever seen anything like that?" He was shocked and he said, "Nope." And I said to him: "Let's follow it!" "We followed it for several minutes. It was a bright white light." "We followed it to Bakersfield, and all of a sudden to our utter amazement it went straight up into the heavens."

When he became President he frequently discussed UFOs with his staff, and received numerous reports on sightings, and made frequent references to UFOs in his speeches.

On September 28, 1981, President Reagan received a letter from Colonel Ret. Colman VonKeviczky, Director of the International UFO Galactic Spacecraft Research and Analytic Network (ICUFON) that claimed UFOs were an intergalactic task force that will destroy earth unless world leaders band together to end their hostile actions against UFOs."

Chief Military Advisor of the White House, Major General Robert Schweitzer replied, "The President is well aware of the threat you document so clearly and is doing all in his power to restore the national defense margin of safety as quickly and prudently as possible." Dated November 21, 1981.

General Douglas MacArthur also spoke of "an ultimate conflict between a united human race and the sinister forces of some other planetary galaxy.

On December 4, 1985, Reagan made a speech at Fallston High School in Maryland telling about his meeting in Geneva where in five hours of private conversations with Soviet Premier Gorbachev he had brought up the alien scenario:

"I couldn’t help but - when you stop to think that we’re all God’s children, wherever we live in the world, I couldn’t help but say to him (Gorbachev) just how easy his task and mine might be if suddenly there was a threat to this world from some other species from another planet outside in the universe. We’d forget all the little local differences that we have between our countries and we would find out once and for all that we really are all human beings here on this Earth together. Well I guess we can wait for some alien race to come down and threaten us, but I think that between us we can bring about that realization."

Reagan showed his perception of UFOs at the United Nations General Assembly September 21st, 1987, when he stated, "In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask you," he went on, "is not an alien threat already among us? What could be more alien to universal aspirations of our peoples than war and the threat of war?"

President Reagan apparently developed a plan to defeat the USSR, and Communism that he called the Evil Empire. A key part of the plan was the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) announced in 1983, and called the "Star Wars" defense system that could destroy Soviet missiles and probably UFOs. Reagan proposed a complex set of defensive lasers and missiles intended to shoot down Soviet IBCMs. He even offered the defense system to the Soviets.

Whether inspired through his conversations with President Reagan, or through information provided by his own intelligence, Gorbachev had his own interest in UFOs.

On February 16, 1987, in an important speech, at a conference at Grand Kremlin Palace in Moscow on the "Survival of Humanity," Gorbachev stated,

"At our meeting in Geneva, the U.S. President said that if the earth faced an invasion by extraterrestrials, the United States and the Soviet Union would join forces to repel such an invasion. I shall not dispute the hypothesis, although I think it’s early yet to worry about such an intrusion. It is much more important to think about the problems that have entered in our common home."

Hundreds of reports of abductions were reported in the Soviet Union, astronauts were reporting UFOs, fighters were being launched to chase them, and while rumors persist Gorbachev himself was visited by an alien and given a stern warning. One such report states:

MOSCOW, USSR -- Zinaida Gavrilova had gone for a walk along a wooded path on the outskirts of the city in June 1990, when she saw directly before her a column of smoke appear.

As the smoke dissipated the outline of a human figure appeared, which turned out to be a woman about three meters in height, with a bright light on the chest area.

The woman repeated three times, "You shall go with me" At this point Zinaida lost consciousness and later came to about half an hour later, with vague memories of having gone somewhere with the giant woman. Later while under hypnosis she recalled traveling on board a UFO journeying to a distant planet. In that planet she found herself walking on a long white street, lined with numerous white structures with rods on top. The sky above was strange, seemingly illuminated by an artificial light with no solar disc evident. She is told she is on an artificial planet called "Kuili. Alexey Priyma, Valeriy Avdeev, Moscow center on Paranormal research.

According to the "Secret KGB UFO files" TV program craft were discovered after crashing possibly after Soviet intercepts.

Besides numerous abduction scenarios, UFOs were destroying key Soviet installations, and intercepts of Soviet communications indicated fighters were being launched to ward off further UFO attacks. General Igor Malsev, Chief of the General Staff for Air Defense Forces (PVO), admitted that over a hundred observations of UFOs had been reported to him, mostly by pilots, on March 21, 1990. The Soviets were very concerned about the attacks and the new threats provided by UFOs.

In May 1990, shortly before the fall of the Soviet Union Gorbachev made a second more direct statement about UFOs."The phenomenon of UFOs does exist," he stated, "and it must be treated seriously."

According to filmmaker and Russian ufologist Dr. Vladimir Avinsky, on September 13, 1990, just after midnight a Soviet radar station near Samara was attacked by a black triangular shaped UFO. It was about 50 feet in length on each leg of the triangle. A fire stated and the radar antennae seemed to melt. These extraordinary events were reported in the Red Star Military Newspaper. Dr. Avinsky provided these drawings of the attack.

According to Timothy Good in his excellent new book "Need to Know" on September 28, 1990, cosmonauts on board the Mir Space station saw a UFO over Newfoundland. Astronaut Gennadi Manakov states,"It was a great, silvery sphere and it was iridescent at 22:51? It was much larger than a huge ship and had a regular shape, but what it was I don't know, perhaps an enormous, experimental sphere, or something else". snip

Officially it is stated the Soviet Union collapsed because of economic problems, but from its beginning it always had serious financial problems and its huge oil production was coming on line. I suggest UFOs participated in the collapse of the Soviet Union to protect their interests.

Boris Yeltsin came to power on June 12, 1991, and was elected president of the Russia becoming the first popularly elected president, and completing the fall of the Communist USSR and essentially ending the Cold War.

Margaret Thatcher reminded us, " President Reagan won the Cold War without firing a shot." I feel he had help from our visitors in UFOs. In his last public announcement he revealed, "When the Lord calls me home, whenever that may be, I will leave with the greatest love for this country of ours, and eternal optimism for its future."

US Jet Intercepts Ballistic Missile for First Time

A US F-16 fighter used an air-to-air missile to destroy a sounding rocket in its boost phase for the first time this week in a test of a new missile defense concept. The system -- named the Net-Centric Airborne Defense Element (NCDE) -- concept is to arm fighter aircraft or drones with missiles fast enough to intercept a ballistic missile as it lifts into space.

The aircraft would have to get to within a 100 miles of the launch site to catch the ascending missile in the first two to three minutes after launch. But it could be very useful in a short range combat situation against short and medium range missiles.

The test at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico involved an F-16 fighter that fired two modified AIM-9X missile at an Orion sounding or research rocket. The first destroyed the rocket and the second recorded the interception, the Pentagon's missile defense agency said. The AIM-9X is fitted with a new liquid propellant second stage to give it the burst of speed needed to catch a ballistic missile in its boost phase.

Arkansas - UFO Disc Photo

I was taking my dog for a walk on February 5, 2008, and I saw this object that at the time appeared to be a black circle a little way behind the house. It looked at eye level to be about a quarter the size of the moon and was moving with no noise and at a slow unwavering pace. At that moment I became frightened so I went inside. I got my camera to get a picture so my parents wouldn't think I was being paranoid. So I went to my bedroom and looked out my window and the object was a little way behind and above the tree level in our front yard. So I took the camera and took four pictures.

Only one of the pictures was even remotely good enough to show to anyone because the object was so far away at this point. But when the object was over the trees while I was viewing it out my window it was not moving and I continued to watch it until it did.

And when it started moving it was gone pretty fast. I felt extremely hot and my skin was kind of warm and I felt shaky. But, I am assuming that was adrenaline from the initial shock of seeing the object. The bottom of the object appeared smooth and black but not shiny. And in the picture you can see a hump on the top like most typical saucers, but when I saw the object it only appeared like a black hole in the sky. The camera I used was a PowerShot A530 Canon model if that helps with anything.

California - Test Pilot Chases UFO

EDWARDS AFB -- In 1955, my deceased father Lt. Col. Roy Jack Edwards USMC (Ret. USNA Class of '47 - same as Pres. Jimmy Carter) revealed an experience he had as a young test pilot to me just two years before he died. He claimed the reason he never shared his UFO chase encounter was the deep fear the military had threatened him, during debriefing upon returning to base, for disobeying direct orders he would lose all his military benefits along with a less than honorable discharge.

During a test flight of the new version Super Sabre in clear sky conditions my father contacted ground control stating, "I have sighted a definite large UFO." He was firmly "ordered" to "break away immediately and return to base" with his chase (observation) plane. His observation plane complied. However, my fearless USMC trained mindset father told me that his raw intrepid instincts kicked in, thus, ignored ground control because he knew he probably wouldn't ever get another opportunity to confront a UFO and pursued.

So, he made a linear flight towards this stationary positioned cigar shaped orange glowing object and described without any surface area indicative as having any source of propulsion which he estimated to be about two football fields in length or 600 feet in length and 150 feet in circumference. As he reached a range of about 3-4 miles from the UFO it emitted a single burst of blue light blinding my father and disabling his plane's communications equipment. Striped of his sense of vision and communication to ground control he was in a very precarious position. But he managed to bank his craft to a soft right turn and kept his altitude from dropping by keeping his stick from going forward. He said he considered bailing out but wanted to ride out some time (knowing he had enough fuel) in hope the shock of whatever happened to him and his plane would be temporary.

His sight returned in slow blurry stages until he regained full sight acuity in about 10-15 minutes. Now capable to see his instruments, horizon and most important recognizing familiar terrain landmarks he tracked his return to Edwards' airfield still w/o communications. Although my dad was relieved to have survived this unique dangerous experience during his stern debriefing by his CO for disobeying direct orders, he learned two unpleasant things. The reason his CO ordered him to return to base ASAP, was that the same UFO had caused the deaths of three prior test pilots. If my father had known of this critical information prior to his UFO encounter, he claimed he wouldn't have pursued the UFO and would've obeyed ground control orders.

As a reprimand for disobeying direct orders he permanently lost his status as a test pilot and was sent to a teaching position at Annapolis. Additionally, he wasn't allowed to ever fly jets in the future. Eventually, after a few years at the pentagon in Wash. D.C. he petitioned and was permitted to fly choppers (CH 46).

Lt. Col. Roy Jack Edward's son fought tooth and nail to have his father buried with military honors and he put to rest with military honors.

HBCC UFO Research Note: A Military cover-up, which seems to be nothing new from all the servicemen I have spoken with. From being threatened with loss of pensions, their lives, you name it. These are the stories military personal relate to me. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research

ORANGE and LA COUNTY -- My husband and I were driving west bound at about 6 PM, on January 26, 2008, when they saw a bright, glowing light falling toward earth with a bright tail of light. First we thought that it was a falling star, but both of us realized it was huge and too close to the earth for that and said to each other, it's going to crash. Then it stopped falling and started to hover with the tail light extinguished but the main ball of light remained very bright. It faded in and out and then traveled horizontally very quickly. Another glowing light seemed to be circling around it in a wide pattern. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research.

Florida - Photo

JACKSONVILLE -- I let my dog out to do his business and noticed a completely silent unfamiliar glowing object in the eastern night sky between my house and downtown Jacksonville. I got my 10 power binoculars and looked at it.

It seemed to be a glowing saucer shaped object with some energy strings with what seemed to be bright bits of light going up and down coming out of the bottom into a ring area that constricted the "strings". Then just below this these string of light spread out in a cone shape and got less bight the father away from the ring area they got. This light formation underneath seemed to scan back and forth and right to left under the saucer shape like it was looking for something or maybe making a complete scan of the area. I went in the house and got my old digital camera and got three photos. The object stayed in sight for about 15-20 minutes.

In my area I have seen many types of airplanes including the stealth bomber and fighter and all sorts of other military and civilian aircraft including many different helicopters from the navy bases around here. I also have seen weather balloons, the blimps that come around for football games and hot air balloons. This did not match anything I have ever seen in person or on TV. Heck it didn't match anything I have seen on science fiction programs or movies. I have three raw photos, some blown up and some crude computer drawings of what the heck ever it was I saw . It looks like there is only three places to leave attachments and I have a couple more images that serve to show what I SAW BETTER IF YALL WOULD LIKE 'EM . Thanks to Walter and MUFON CMS

Georgia - UFO Photo

Photo and Enlargement. Photo Has Been Brightened to Reveal Background Features.

MURRAYVILLE - On January 27, 2008, I saw a largee craft with red, blue and gold lights at 1:25 AM. The object made no sound. It just sat in the sky and then began moving erratically in all directions. The sighting was about 50 miles NE of Atlanta in clear skies with visibility of 7 miles with winds that were from the west at 10 MPH.

Comments: The witness did not say much about what he photographed. Satellite photos reveal that the photo was taken in a rural area. I have written to obtain more information. The photo that he sent appears to be authentic and not tampered with. I brightened the photo in Photoshop which revealed the gas tank and tree in the background. It appears that the lights (object) was moving when the photo was taken. The "streaking" is probably not due to camera movement because the tree appears to be in focus. The photo also reveals a red light which has no streaking. A Kodak Easyshare CX7310 digital camera was used to take the photo.

Illinois - Slow Blinking Lights

AURORA -- I got up early to get a drink of water on January 19, 2008, and looked out the kitchen window. About 3/4 of a mile east of me, over a nearby subdivision, I saw what I thought at first was a plane going to the nearby Aurora airport heading west. It had slow blinking lights. It seemed large and flying very low. It then stopped and hovered for about 10 minutes, I am not sure exactly, it was a long time. I took a picture and then went back to bed. It was still there when I looked out my bathroom window. It just kept on hovering over these homes. Unfortunately, my camera could not get a clearer view (of course). I am writing in hopes someone else saw it, as it was there for so long.

Indiana - Cell Phone Dies Circular Craft

KOKOMO -- According to the state of Indiana, I am a licensed Detective. However, I work for a Security firm at the Delphi Electronics Headquarters in Kokomo, Indiana as a Professional Security Officer. It started first when I got into the officers truck to pick up another employee who was at one of our buildings across the street on January 24, 2008, at 7:08 PM. I managed to make it over to where he was, and then as I started to drive across the street I noticed the lights on the truck were dimming at a fairly steady pace. I barely made it back across the street before the lights, all of the gauges stopped working, and the brakes and power steering went out in our company vehicle, and the vehicle completely died.

The officer and I radioed to our supervisor to let him know about the truck. I was then given another truck to drive, and I had parked it outside one of our gates long enough to drop off a lunch box that had been left in our now broken down truck only 10 minutes prior. I had been in the guard shack for only probably five minutes before walking outside to see the first orange light. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research.

Iowa Pulsing Craft

ALTOONA -- I was driving home from Dmacc, the Ankeny campus on January 31, 2008, at 10:30 PM, and I was almost near the Altoona city limits when this white bright flashing light caught my attention. The object was heading north but reversed directions and started heading south. Then, the flashing light died out and then started glowing red as the object descended. It looked pretty large and I have seen similar pulsing craft like this one, but they didn't fly as low as this object did. The object switched directions again and headed west. It crossed over the road and descended a little more and kind of picked up speed. It was hard to tell the shape of the object as it looked kind of tilted and strange. Total time this object was in sight was about five minutes. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research.

New Mexico - Webcam Captures UFO

TAOS MOUNTAINS -- I was checking out a live web cam feed of the Taos Mountains in New Mexico when I saw this really strange looking green object in the night sky. The image has been enhanced with increased brightness but may be a reflection on the camera lens. Thanks to MUFON CMS

New York Sailplane UFO Encounter

DANSVILLE -- I and fellow sailplane pilots were getting ready for a day of flying and asked our instructor about UFOs. He stated, "I was up in a sailplane flying inside of a cloud in the afternoon in the late 1970s. I was getting some good altitude, around 15, 000 feet, and it was starting to get a bit cold, so I figured I would come out the sunny side to get some heat in the cockpit. When I came out of the cloud expecting to get some sun, I was in the shadow of a huge object. Afraid, I went back into the cloud." He stated, "The object was too big to fly, and we don't have anything like this that we could get off the ground."

He was a glider pilot in the 2nd World War and was trying to keep his health so he could keep flying until he was in his 60s. He's now in his late 90s, and in the Spring you'll find him at the airport still doing the thing he loves the most. I personally think he got zapped. He is 95 years old and flies the tow plane when it's his turn, and still gives instructions.

Texas - Drawing

Carolyn writes, "While my husband and I were on the way to the movie on January 8. 3008, I noticed a blimp like shape in the sky around 6:40 PM." Thinking it was an advertisement from the blimp from the old Albertsons store we drove to check it out thinking how cool it was that it was all lit up. Once we got to that location, there was no blimp to be found. However, the blimp like object was still visible and had very bright lights all around it with lights going through the center. I remember them being greener neon color in the center and white everywhere else.

It pretty much stayed in the same location while we were looking at it. I kept trying to figure out if it was a sign but never could figure it out. It was so large that I thought that some place locally was advertising. We were only there for maybe 5 minutes. Not putting much more thought into it, my husband and I went off to see our movie which started at 7:05 PM. It took us about 20-25 minutes to get to the movies. So I would say that we saw the blimp like object.

The next day we heard about the UFO sighting in Stephenville and realized that what we saw must have been the UFO. The lights were too bright for it to be an airplane of any kind. We looked Stephenville up on the map and sure enough it was that exact direction that we were looking when we saw the blimp like object the night before. It's too coincidental that we saw something within the same time and same direction that the residents of Stephenville did. A UFO never even entered our minds at the time. But, I am a firm believer that what we saw was the same thing that was seen in Stephenville 100 miles away.

Glenn writes, "I confirm everything that Carolyn said above and I wanted to add that I was driving and did not get to look at the object the entire time. I did get a good look at it when we arrived at the Albertsons parking lot. We live by DFW airport and are very used to seeing aircraft every 5 minutes or so. I was a redeye gunner while in the U.S. Army and received aircraft recognition training. This was in no way any aircraft I have ever seen. The entire time I saw the object it did not move, and was completely stationary. I have included a Photoshop drawing of above of what we both agree we saw. Thanks to MUFON CMS.

On November 1, 2007, I was in the backyard taking pictures and something flew by and I caught it on my camera. I have other picture of other objects that can't be identified. Thanks to MUFON CMS.

Washington - Flying Triangle

I had been sitting in the window smoking a cigarette as 8 o'clock was about to roll around in June of 2007, and unexpectedly I started to see some light above me from my window. It had shocked me so much that I stayed silent for a moment, and I said to my girlfriend and my friend who had been there at the time, "Hey... I'm pretty sure this is a UFO, come here and look at this." and we all started getting excited, because who'd ever expect to just see a huge triangular UFO probably each side length being a quarter mile or more.

So, my friend and I ran to put on our shoes and tried to follow and see it for longer, but we didn't make it more than 30 yards before it had shot off to space to the size of a star and later was gone. On the back it had white lights in a barred pattern as if they were side by side office windows, but you couldn't see in them because they were just too bright. The bottom of the craft was strangely arranged with red and blue lights, that covered practically the entire bottom surface. It had an odd pattern where there were blue lights across the entire sides of the bottom surface and on the center it was all red lights and some yellow/white. I've included a drawn picture that's as close as I can remember, which is pretty close I'd assume. I remember it well.

Australia - UFO might be the Tower?

SYDNEY -- In the current Filers Files an image taken of lights above Sydney looks very much like it could be Sydney tower at night??? Keep up the good work, Thanks to Darryl Jones

Canada - Disc

WHITBYS - While driving on the 401 eastbound, in Whitby’s Township, on January 24, 2008, at 6:30 PM. I witnessed a very bright, intense white light, with multi colored lights within the white light. The colors were green, red, blue and yellow blending with the dominate white light. I then drove to southern Oshawa, and pulled into a Best Buy parking lot facing Lake Ontario two miles away.

I started to film, using a analog camcorder but lost power within 40 seconds. Then, I used my digital camera, with video shots and still shots. This intense light appeared stationary about five miles away. I could cleanly see the white clouds behind this intense light. It was not a star or planet. Here once again, is my PHOTOGRAPHIC proof- that we are not alone. P.S. Wait till you see footage from the analog camcorder, it is really weird Thanks again for Filer’s Files, Paul Shishis.

STONY MOUNTAIN/ANZAC -- My mother witnessed an octagonal shaped UFO, on February 1, 2008, about 2 in the morning. She noticed a red and blue flashing light in the sky. Thinking that it was a low flying airplane, she went back to watching TV. Ten minutes later, she noticed that the lights were still hovering above a nearby 'mountain'. Curious, she got a pair of binoculars, and went upstairs to make sure it wasn't some sort of strange reflection. When she focused on the object, she saw that it had an octagonal shape and that it wasn't an airplane and had spider-web like lattice, with red and blue flashing lights strung throughout. She went between the first and second floors to get different angles of coverage, but she was too scared to go outside, or drive nearer. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.ufocenter.com

Chile - Three Moving Bright Lights

SANTIAGO -- At around 12:20 AM, on January 1, 2008, my wife and I saw a red light, like a star that was even brighter that Sirius that changed brightness from very dim to very bright. The color also changed from very deep red to orange/yellow. A few minutes after I went into the house to see if someone reported an astronomic event to explain this phenomenon. This light showed up below the Taurus constellation (north-east), at around 20-30 degrees above the horizon. During my laptop booting process I went out to verify the object, but to my surprise I found another light with the same characteristics at our north around 30 digress above horizon.

Then, my wife showed me another object with the same characteristics moving from south to north that passed just above Eenith to about the same location as the other lights. The north and the north-east lights were moving slowly west. After many years as an amateur astronomer and artificial satellite viewer I never saw anything like this. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.ufocenter.com

India Rotating oval and Lights

CHANDIGARH -- I live in Panchkula just next to Chandigarh. On January 5th, 2008, around a 8 PM, I was standing in the balcony with my father and saw twinkling lights in a circular shape high in the sky. My first impression was that it's a UFO, but my father kept saying it's a helicopter, but I was sure it wasn't. I tried to capture it with my phone camera (2MP) but it wasn't bright enough. I researched the object on the Internet and found a similar picture of a UFO seen in Himachal Pardesh, India not far from here. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.ufocenter.com

Italy - Triangle UFO

TRENTO -- Whilst on a school skiing trip with eight other pupils, a skiing instructor, locals, and myself witnessed a UFO, on January 12, 2008, at 6 PM. At the time we were skiing down Mount Alpamis and had just reached the bottom of the mountain when a fellow student pointed out an aircraft which looked like an American stealth plane. After a few seconds we realized the plane was travelling too slowly to be an aircraft as it seemed to be blown by the wind. The object was around 0.5 km away from our position at the time. We all witnessed a black/dark grey object, with no lights. It was not shiny and about the size of a small aircraft and was triangular with rounded off edges.

The next day our ski instructor was interviewed by the local police who told him it was most probably a kite or balloon, but admitted to him that in the past few months there had been more than 14 sightings of the same description. It was certainly not a kite as it did not weave around like a normal kite and it was certainly not a balloon as its altitude did not change and it was too big. The objects were at an estimated 400 feet above ground level and left no haze and made no noise, although during the event, a truck behind us was reversing and its sirens were going off. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.ufocenter.com

Mexico - Orange High Speed Sphere

MEXICO CITY -- I was at my patio smoking a cigarette on January 12, 2008, at 6 PM and I looked up, on a very clear sky. Some stars were visible. I saw an orange ball (very similar to a dimmed, almost off bulb) traveling from west to east at a very impressive speed. From the moment that I started looking at it until the moment that I lost it was like 15 seconds. I have never seen an object traveling on the air so fast. I have seen satellites many times on very dark nights and I know this was not one of those. I also love watching planes and I am positive this was not a plane either. Absolutely silent, very smooth, very fast nice color, similar to the orange moons that you sometimes get to see. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.ufocenter.com

MCIA - MEXICO CITY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT -- The Journal of Hispanic Ufology reports, "An Japan Airlines Boeing 747-400 was surrounded by 20 black spherical objects in the San Mateo Air Corridor in the vicinity of the Satellite Towers in the state of Mexico on January 24, 2008 at 6:30 PM." This report was provided to researcher Alfonso Salazar by technical personnel of the MCIA who had direct access to crew information. The Japanese airliner registration number is JA-880 flew the Vancouver to Mexico City route. The witnesses specified that the flying objects were black-colored and divided into two groups. It should be noted multiple encounters between UFOs and airliners have been reported in this air corridor.

New Zealand - Cows Disturbed by Light

AUCKLAND - I live 20 minutes from Auckland City and on January 26, 2008, the cows were bellowing all night and I went outside at 01:40 AM and there is a strange ball of light over the city. It is not stationary on the horizon, its bouncing; it has strange lighting as well, like the cross that you see from a bright light in a dark sky. The moon is three quarters and the sky is clear, so this is odd. The cross is straight through from bottom left to top right like in the position of 8 o'clock and 2 o'clock. But there another at 4 o'clock and none other where you would expect around the 10 o'clock position. I don't have any equipment to validate my claim, other than my wife getting dragged out to look as I was questioning my own eyes and what I'm seeing. When I went to bed around 3:00 AM, the ball has moved to the bottom of the constellation of Orion on the right side of the two stars below the belt still strangely lit but closer to us. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research

U.K. - Three Orange Lights in Triangle Formation
