This week's Files report: STS -84 Atlantis Catches Large UFO on Video, Stephen Hawking's says, "We are not alone in the Universe, Microscopic Peach Fuzz May Be Evidence of Martians, Earth's Magnetic Tail. and Fire Fighters Guide Part #8.
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena were spotted over: Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Indiana, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Washington.
UFOs were also seen in Canada, Ireland, Sweden, 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. The Dead Sea Scrolls reveal there is a galactic war between the sons of light and sons of darkness. It is my belief that God has spread intelligent civilizations throughout the universe and his messengers flew UFOs.

Judges 5:20 They fought from heaven; the stars in their courses fought against Sisera. Fennis Jennings Dake spent one hundred thousand hours and 43 years searching the scriptures states, "This verse is just one of many scriptures teaching that wars are lost or won in the heavenlies between the good and bad forces of God and Satan. Dakes Annotated Reference Bible.
This photo was taken by STS-84 shortly after undocking during the sixth Shuttle mission to the Mir Russian Space Station on May 21, 1997. The docking was highlighted by the transfer of astronaut Mike Foale to the Russian Space Station. He exchanged places with US astronaut Jerry Linenger.
The undocking occurred at 9:04 p.m. EDT, over New Zealand and as Atlantis pulled away, NASA videotape spotted several UFOs in the vicinity of the Mir Space Station. The UFO above was captured moving from the bottom right up and behind the Mir. The orbiter was stopped three times while backing away to collect data to assist future rendezvous of a proposed European Space Agency resupply vehicle with the International Space Station.

WASHINGTON - Famed astrophysicist Stephen Hawking has been thinking a lot about the cosmic question, "Are we alone?" The answer is probably not, he says. If there is life elsewhere in the universe, Hawking asks why haven't we stumbled onto some alien broadcasts in space, maybe something like "alien quiz shows?" Hawking's comments were part of a lecture at George Washington University on Monday in honor of NASA's 50th anniversary. He theorized that there are possible answers to whether there is extraterrestrial life.
One option is that there likely isn't life elsewhere. Or maybe there is intelligent life elsewhere, but when it gets smart enough to send signals into space, it also is smart enough to make destructive nuclear weapons. Hawking said he prefers the third option: "Primitive life is very common and intelligent life is fairly rare," he then quickly added: "Some would say it has yet to occur on earth." However, because alien life might not have DNA like us, Hawking warned: "Watch out if you would meet an alien. You could be infected with a disease with which you have no resistance."
The 66-year-old British cosmologist, who suffers from ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease, and must speak through a mechanical device, believes "if the human race is to continue for another million years, we will have to boldly go where no one has gone before."
Hawking compared people who don't want to spend money on human space exploration to those who opposed the journey of Christopher Columbus in 1492.

If Martian life existed a few billion years ago, scientists think any plant-like microbes would have left behind a stringy fuzz of fibers. That's because here on Earth, researchers now say they have found such ancient fuzz, called cellulose, preserved in chunks of salt deposited more than 250 million years ago - making it the oldest biological substance yet recovered.
The announcement comes about a week after a team of planetary scientists announced discovering evaporated salt deposits on Mars and adds another element of hope to the search for alien life or signs of its past biology. Click here to visit FOXNews.com's Natural Science Center.
Editor's Note; Large tree like structures have been found on Mars near the South Pole at 79.05S 202W that look similar to these string of fibers. Perhaps on Mars they have grown exceptionally large.

B/General John A. McDavid made comments for public consumption of the possible invasion of interplanetary beings. McDavid said, in an Air Force approved speech at Milliken University, Decatur, Illinois:
"Before long, people may be forced to realize and accept as a fact that this earth is only an infinitesimal grain of sand in an infinite universe," declared McDavid. The human is one of many forms of life with which God is concerned and others are superior to us. And if this is true, our meeting with other types of existence in other places in the universe quite likely will increase the potential element of conflict rather than reduce it."
Why would a brigadier general have to have an Air Force approved speech unless he was treading on Top-Secret grounds and had to walk a very thin line in what he said? And, we must ask, if UFO's don't exist, they are just balloons and swamp gas, would he have to walk a very thin line and get Air Force approval?
ASA-supported scientists have realized that something happens every month when the moon gets a lashing from Earth's magnetic tail. “Earth's magnetotail extends well beyond the orbit of the moon and, once a month, the moon orbits through it,” says Tim Stubbs, a University of Maryland scientist working at the Goddard Space Flight Center. “This can have consequences ranging from lunar ‘dust storms' to electrostatic discharges.” Anyone can tell when the moon is inside the magnetotail because if the moon is full, it is inside the magnetotail,” says Stubbs. “The moon enters the magnetotail three days before it is full and takes about six days to cross and exit on the other side.”
It is during those six days that strange things can happen.
Fine particles of dust on the moon's surface can actually float off the ground when they become charged by electrons in Earth's magnetotail. Credit: Tim Stubbs/University of Maryland/GSFC. During the crossing, the moon comes in contact with a gigantic “plasma sheet” of hot charged particles trapped in the tail. The lightest and most mobile of these particles, electrons, pepper the moon's surface and give the moon a negative charge. On the moon's dayside this effect is counteracted to a degree by sunlight: UV photons knock electrons back off the surface, keeping the build-up of charge at relatively low levels. But on the night side, in the cold lunar dark, electrons accumulate and surface voltages can climb to hundreds or thousands of volts.
Imagine what it feels like to be a sock pulled crackling from a dryer. Astronauts on the moon during a magnetotail crossing might be able to tell you. Walking across the dusty charged-up lunar terrain, the astronauts themselves would gather a load of excess charge. Touching another astronaut, a doorknob, a piece of sensitive electronics -- any of these simple actions could produce an unwelcome discharge. “Proper grounding is strongly recommended,” says Stubbs.

CHAPTER 13: ENEMY ATTACK AND UFO POTENTIAL
REGIONAL POWER BLACKOUTS Part 8
It has long been suspected that UFOs have the capability of blacking out a city, state, or many states by exerting a force field sufficient to overload the circuits of public and private utility installations. "Few things are more disturbing than to be plunged into pitch darkness without warning; it is dangerous for masses of people. It paralyzes cities, blocks highways, stops trains, and leaves elevators suspended between floors. In general it simply plays hell with the modern way of life."(65) You would think that the power companies would have achieved sufficient reliability in their high tech systems that a mass failure such as that which blacked out New York and New England in 1965 would never happen--but it did. Although, as we have mentioned before, it was known that UFO activity was associated with disturbances with compasses, instruments, ignition systems, radios, etc., it was inconceivable that it could also interfere with generation and distribution of electrical power. Such a connection was also inferred in November 1953, when a glowing red object went over a residential area of New Haven, Connecticut, causing lights to dim out on both sides of the object's path and then come on when it went out of sight. Power failures were also reported in association with UFOs in Brazil in 957 to l959~ Rome, Italy, in 1958; and Mexico in 1965. Likewise, in Uberlandia, where the power station operators promptly closed the circuits when the UFO apparently caused them to open, it did no good, and they were unable to restore the power until the UFO departed. "The Granddaddy of all blackouts to date was the stygian blanket that fell over 30 million people in the northeastern corner of the U.S. during the early evening rush hour period on November 9, 1965."(66) Relay services that were supposed to automatically transfer the load in case of failure in one area to an alternate source malfunctioned. Military communications relying on public power without alternate backup systems also failed, but communications were operable to make a quick public announcement that there was no military emergency. Though it was largely over by the next morning, the official explanation about a malfunctioning small device in a Canadian hydroelectric generating plant never accounted for the failure of millions of dollars worth of electronic devices to shift the load when the breakdown occurred.

The Lyrid meteor shower streams from a point in the constellation Lyra near Vega - a brilliant blue-white star.
The meteor shower occurs due to the Earth passing through a trail of debris left by comet Thatcher (C/1861 G1). The Lyrids are typically visible between 16th and 25th April with a maximum occurring during April 22nd. There have been instances during the last 200 years when rates were near or over 100 per hour!
MUNFORD - On April 17, 2008, at 5:30 PM, we were going to town and it was about 1500 feet or so high and about 200 yards in front of us. We were going northeast and the sun was behind us and we could plainly see a round ball looking sphere. The insides were blackened and it had no lights or frame. As it went over we first thought it was a weird helicopter, then we noticed it had no propellers and no engines. It then went over the tree-line. My wife is in denial, she saw it just fine until she realized it was nothing we had ever seen or even heard of. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research http://www.hbccufo.org
PHOENIX - Arizona More Lights
PHOENIX - My husband and I were gooing from Ahwatukee to the Chandler Mall on April 21, 2008, about 7 PM, and dark. We first headed east on the I-10, and when we took the ramp to go east on the 202, I saw three lights in the sky in a triangle shape. I pointed them out to my husband, and although he was driving, he looked and saw them distinctly. The entire time we were on the 202, they did not move.
A north Phoenix man told ``The Arizona Republic" that he saw his neighbor launch several helium balloons with flares attached to them shortly before people began seeing the four red lights about 8 p.m. Tuesday. That raised the possibility they were sky lanterns. A police chopper pilot who saw the Phoenix lights said they appeared to be flares, possibly hanging from one or more helium balloons moving in formation. Thanks to MUFON CMS and "The Arizona Republic"
ST. AUGUSTINE -- April 22, 2008, orange glowing flying lights were captured on video seen in the skies around the Castillo de San Marcos this past Saturday. Brandon Puckett a twelve year old boy shot the video of UFOs that was carried on Philadelphia Channel 6 TV news. Puckett said the two fiery balls were flying along the coast in formation. One was slightly in front of the other, but both were going the same speed. Another sighting was reported in St. Augustine Beach in the very early morning hours of April 14, 2008. Thanks to Philadelphia TV6 ABC.com
INDIANAPOLIS – William Puckett reports, strange sights and sounds filled the nighttime sky in Howard and Tipton counties late Wednesday night April 16, 2008, leaving residents and authorities wondering what they had seen and heard. Reports of lights in the sky, crashes and vibrations on the ground baffled residents, who began calling authorities right after the rumblings at about 10:30 p.m.
WESTFIELD - Tonight, April 16 2008 at aboout 10:37 PM, my brother, our friend, and I witnessed something that was not manmade. We live in Central Indiana and I was looking north a little northwest and saw these bright lights come into view. They were rotating in a counter clockwise direction. It wasn't fire. These were lights because you could see each light. We all kind of looked at it for about a minute and a half and then boom! It just took off and vanished. We called the local police department and reported it, and then we called the local news. They had calls flooding in. So we watched the news and they reported that something shot out of this UFO, and that a plane was down and that there was a huge explosion or a sonic boom. Later on at the end of the program they said that nothing was down and no planes were missing. What I witnessed tonight changed the way I look at the sky. Weather: Few Clouds At 25,000 Feet. Visibility Was 10 Miles. Winds Were From the South at 9 MPH.
Whatever I was looking at was not no way no how anything man made. The area that the news reported it happened was over 20 miles away. This thing was HUGE because we could see it perfectly. Anyway I don't know what reporting this event might do. More than likely nothing, but I know that it wasn't manmade. I'm sure the government is already covering it up. They are already starting to say that it may have been military flares. No WAY!!! NO HOW! These were in a perfect line and rotating. The location of the sighting was Tipton County and State Road 31 intersecting with Country Road 300. That is where they reported it happening. Something happened and I am now, I think, a believer.
Comments: What these witnesses have reported and what the news media reported are certainly dichotomous. These witnesses say that they saw rotating lights followed by an explosion. The media (via police reports) explained the explosion as due to meteors. (Click here to read news story from WISH-TV - PDF.) Given this witness report a meteor or military flares seems like quite an unlikely explanation. Anyone seeing these lights is urged to file a report. Please send any photos, videos, or sketches of your observations. Thanks to William uckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com
TIPTON COUNTY -- On April 16, 2008, I was in the living room watching TV, about 10:30 p.m., there was a huge boom that rattled the front window. My husband asked what the noise was, and I went to the front door to see. Off to the west there appeared a large object with lights all the way across it. It reminded me of a hair barrette with lights. It seemed to be hovering, yet the lights appeared to turn. My husband came out to stand behind me just in time to see the lights reappear from right to left until five lights were showing, and then it did it for a second time before it disappeared. The lights were yellow orange in color.
If you look on www.WWKI.com , click on the article about the Boom and the bright lights, you will see pictures that someone submitted. The fourth picture down is exactly what I saw when I first looked out. This was no meteor or F-16, they don't hover. We could not take our eyes off of it, and my husband, who is a Viet Nam veteran and a retired deputy sheriff said he had never seen anything like it. Thanks to MUFON CMS
TIPTON COUNTY -- Another person writes, "There is a Big Coverup going on here in Indiana. Too many people are seeing UFO's and Military Jets, and Booms that shake houses, ground shaking earthquakes and objects falling from the sky. Is there a battle going on between UFOs and Military aircraft? Or are there just objects falling out of the sky and hitting the ground so hard it feels like an earthquake?
Look around you will find reports all over the Place.
Its on all the news channels. Thanks to MUFON CMS
ANDERSON -- I was driving and I saw what looked like something large on fire in the sky. I actually slowed down to watch and I noticed the cars around me did as well. But I was sure I was going to watch something fall out of the sky and crash in the distance, but it just disappeared. It looked like something large on fire almost skipping (as if on land). I kept waiting to see an explosion or something in the distance but it was just gone. I got online tonight to see if anyone else had seen it too or if there was a meteor reported but I'm just at a loss ? Brian Vike reports, "The Indiana Air National Guard claims it was carrying out exercises, and that is why there are all these reports. Well this may be, but I sure have learned not to take everything at face value. Was there an unknown craft in the area and possible pursuit by the military aircraft? Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research http://www.hbccufo.org
Depiction of Craft
Editor's Note: Assuming the witnesses all saw the same thing, some were close to the actual craft that appears to have been disk shaped with multiple lights. Military fighters were launched and participating in an exercise and were called on to pursue the intruder. When I was in the Air Force we would be asked to intercept an unknown to identify as friendly or foe. The 122nd Fighter Wing known as the Blacksnakes at Fort Wayne airport shown below is equipped with F-16s and probably conducted an intercept.
According to Glen Means MUFONs State Section Director of the effected counties several witnesses saw a huge circular craft smoking and leaving vapor trail just after a huge explosion. For more information and an excellent detailed report go to www.ufofiler.com
ATLANTIC CITY - On April 15, 2008, we just witnessed an object off Atlantic City, New Jersey for ten minutes at 6:14 PM, that seemed to have split into five or six pieces within a split second or two. I have operated commercial sea clam vessels off the Atlantic coast for many years and I have never witnessed anything like this. My house overlooks Atlantic City and I enjoy the views with a set of surplus Russian boarder patrol glasses. I am sure of what I just saw and so is my wife. The speed that this object moved was incredible, my glasses are equiped with range finders and I can tell you that nothing that I know of can move like that. About ten minutes after we sighted the object there was a very large tremor that we experienced.
((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness via telephone. He is an extremely experienced observer, we believe. He later reported that an FAA employee had informed him that the lights were part of an exercise by the U. S. Air Force. We cannot confirm that latter fact.
OGDENSBURG -- I was outside picking up the kids bikes on April 16, 2008 and it was approx 9:00 PM when I turned around facing southeast. I saw a trail of sparks yellow in color that just appeared out of nowhere. What was strange about it there was no noise and the trail was about a mile long in the sky and then it just disappeared like it imploded. Again the color was goldish yellow and sparkles leaving a trail, it was really cool to see. Was there a meteor shower that no one knew about that night. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research http://www.hbccufo.org
DURHAM -- On April 16, 2008, at 3:40 PM, we were driving down Clayton Road after school when in broad daylight, and saw a very shiny "blob" of metal. It looked more like a disk for ten seconds. It was not aircraft shaped and was making a turn. The object literally vanished after trees obscured our vision for a mere 5 seconds. It was definitely NOT an aircraft and appeared to hover. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
GREENVILLE -- Have I got two photos on April 19, 2008, of this triangle object that flew over my subdivision at 11:24 AM, I thought it was a B-3 bomber. (No, it's not!!) There were thunderstorms in Greenville this morning and it was raining and windy. (The clouds did not help in the lighting.) Anyway, I was outside checking on a bird nest on my front porch, when I spotted a triangle shape object heading toward my subdivison. I went inside and grabbed my camera and took two pictures of the unknown object. I would have taken more but my battery pack died. (I wonder??) The UFO or aircraft came from the west and headed east. Could this be Lockheed's new toy? It barely made a sound as it flew over. (It sounded like a low humming transformer.)
Comments: This could be it! This could be a real photo of the mysterious Aurora or TR3B Flying Triangle that has longed been rumored to be in construction. The craft must have been flying very low given the low cloud ceiling. In addition the low sound certainly excludes any Stealth aircraft. I have posed more questions to the witness. Preliminary analysis shows that these photos are authentic. However, more analysis will be performed. Thanks to Bill Puckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com
HARDIN VALLEY - I had jjust picked up my grandson from elementary school on April 19, 2008, and was traveling north on Steele Road. We noticed a bright cylinder in cloudless bright blue sky. My 8 year old also saw it. I stopped to see if my being stationary would allow me to see more detail such as wings, but the object appeared to become so bright it hurt my eyes, and started to accelerate and disappeared. The cylinder was about 1500 feet high and about half a mile to the east and longer than a commercial jet but not taller. All commercial jets where highly visible leaving contrails. I noticed a light brown cylinder shape to the northeast, with no wings and no aviation lights and maybe ten miles away, close to or over Oakridge. My neighbor later told me the Oakridge Engineering Community was working on cloaking technology, perhaps this is why they retired the F- 117 stealth fighter. Thanks to MUFON CMS
KATY - I was traveling east oon I-10 toward Houston at 6:35 AM on April 19, 2008 and noticed two very short chemtrails in the eastern sky heading down. Right below the chemtrails was an object not moving in any direction and hovering. The chemtrails disappeared and the object was still there. I could not make out the shape of the object or color, but it seems to be a reflective surface because the sun was rising and the object appeared to get brighter as the sun rose. Or maybe it was a light getting brighter or dimmer. Not sure but it seemed more like a solid object, not like a light. I watched this object while I was slowly creeping through traffic on the freeway for about 25 minutes. It was visible, why wouldn't anyone else see it? I had to get off the freeway because of construction and when I did and got back on, I lost it in the sky about 7 AM. Thanks to MUFON CMS
BELLEVUE -- On April 11, 2008, I was on the 18th Floor of the Hyatt eating my dinner and star watching. All of a sudden an object flew by in front of my building. Flying slightly higher than the buildings (low) and in front of me, it came and went quickly but I did have time to get my binoculars locked on to it and it was the strangest thing I have ever looked at. My husband observed it as well, with the naked eye and also was fascinated with it. Its lights were very bright, had lights on 4 sides and one in the middle, it was kinda oval shaped and I couldn't tell where the front of the craft was, nor the back, nor the top nor the bottom. I only saw it from one angle as it went by... and if I had to guess, to me it looked like I was seeing it from the bottom (but that would mean it was flying sideways...).. it was a decently large object, not very long- kind of fat- seemed really ..'mechanical'? like the bottom of some huge craft on Star Wars.. but it wasn't huge.. it was nothing like any kind of plane, and moved quickly by - not 'out of this world' quick, but definitely fast. Sometimes, I laugh when I see peoples ridiculous hand drawn pictures of sightings, but now I understand! Here's mine, its the best I could do. P Thanks to MUFON CMS.
CASTLEGAR, BRITISH COLUMBIA - On April 17, 2008, a lady was out walking her dog along the road on the outskirts of Castlegar, at 4:15 PM. It was just above the roof of a home, and in the distance just above the horizon/mountain top she saw an object. The UFO was not moving and did not produce any sound or give off any sort of light (reflective, etc), or have any lights on it. The craft was shaped like a horizontal tear drop and the front of the object was a light grey and the back end was a darker grey in color. The thing sat stationary for maybe 20 seconds and then moved off extremely fast and went out of sight. Pretty much lost sight of the object due to the local mountains in the area. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research http://www.hbccufo.org
On April 17, 2008, I only noticed the object after I got home. The photo was taken in Ireland. I don't know what is the object in the upper left. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Disc Object has been enlarged multiple times
SORSELE - On April 17, 2008, I watched this strange light in the sky on the Sorsele Webcam in Sweden. I stayed there for nearly an hour and it did not move. Anyone know what it could be? Thanks to MUFON CMS
BARNSTAPLE, North Devon -- I was sat watching TV on April 17, 2008, when I had the weirdest feeling , heard noises and our dog started to pace the room around 9:30 PM, he didn't bark, but whimpered a few times. I called to my husband to ask him what he thought it was. He commented that it was nothing very much, just practice for the military probably. Then it started-up again, even louder this time. It sounded as though it was right above our roof! I got outside the back door as fast as I could, my husband followed me saying that it's probably RAF Chivenor doing some kind of training. We could clearly hear the roaring of jet aircrafts, however, we couldn't see anything, just the stars, and the moon in a clear sky. The whole sky seemed to come alive with the roaring. Later, my husband decided to drive up to our local 24 hours grocery store, at 3:30 AM, on his way back from the store the bonnet (hood) of the car and the road had lit-up a violet/electric white blue color light. The light suddenly disappeared when he noticed a van driving down towards the town centre.
