Seeing Is Believing: For the first time this year, astronomers directly observed planets orbiting other stars, using special telescope techniques to distinguish the planets' faint light from the stars' bright glare.
Epsilon Eridani b orbits an orange Sun-like star only 10.5 light years away from Earth. It is so close to us telescopes might soon be able to photograph it. It orbits too far away from its star to support liquid water or life as we know it, but scientists predict there are other stars in the system that might be good candidates for alien life. The Milky Way is considerably larger, bulkier and spinning faster than astronomers once thought. Scientists mapped the Milky Way in a more detailed, three-dimensional way and found that it's 15 percent larger in breadth. More important, it's denser, with 50 percent more mass, which is like weight. It now equal to Andromeda constellation. Thanks to American Astronomical Society.

These are still photos from Japanese satellite videos of the Moon on YouTube. If anyone can clarify the photos I would appreciate it. There appears to be markings on the side of mountains indicating the names of mines or bases. Similar markings are on Mars. http://jp.youtube.com/watch?v=x8vtiiIVGvY&feature=PlayList&p=69DF1E9036206D75&index=0&playnext=1
Carsten Dresbach from Germany writes, "I read your Weekly Filer Files continuously and congratulations for the excellent work! I'm also a big fan of the Selene-Kaguya Mission and their results. It provides a lot of really good photos and videos.
This still image is a snapshot from a high definition movie taken by the onboard high definition TV on November 19. The still image shows the area around the landing site of the Apollo 17 (1972) (between "Monte Taurus" from north to south in the lower center.) The left side is "Mare Serenitatis." The following movies including the one explained above have been newly released on the JAXA website.

(http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/9876/wasistdasbu1.jpg). What could it be? Another moon-satellite (but what nation)? A hole? A dust on the camera lens? If it's on the moon, it must be gigantic! What do you think? A lot of people read your reports in Germany! Thanks to Carsten Dresbach
Editor's Note: The major objectives of the JAXA, mission are to understand the Moon's origin and evolution, and to observe the moon in various ways in order to utilize it in the future. KAGUYA consists of the Main Orbiter and two small relay satellites.. The Main Orbiter is orbiting the Moon taking video of at an altitude of 100 km. The spatial resolution of the Terrain Camera is 10 meters from 100 km orbit above the Moon. Their cameras are also picking up proof of the Apollo landings and strange flying objects. A Chinese satellite is also in orbit around the Moon.
Three high ranking Japanese officials including the Minister of State for Defense Shigeru Ishiba ( far left), Education and Science Minister Kisaburo Tokai wearing glasses, and Chief Cabinet Secretary Nobutaka Machimura who is Japan's chief spokesman is shown with Secretary Rice during their meeting on Feb. 27, 2008. The three announced, they personally believe UFOs exist. We can speculate that these comments at this time would indicate that the Salene-Kaguya satellite or military radars had made some kind of contact with UFOs. Earlier, in response to a question from an opposition lawmaker, the Japanese government issued a statement saying it could not confirm any cases of UFOs. But Chief Cabinet Secretary Nobutaka Machimura later told reporters he believed they were "definitely" real. It is the sort of question politicians dread but, under Japanese rules, are unable to ignore.

This computer graphic shows three craters in the eastern Hellas region of Mars, containing concealed glaciers that were detected by radar. The image was created using image data from the Context Camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) spacecraft combined with results from the SHARAD radar sounder on MRO and HRSC digital elevation map from the Mars Express. Thanks to NASA/JPL This data indicates large amounts of water still exist on Mars.
In this global elevation map (where blue is low and red is high), small green circles show where CRISM detected carbonates on Mars. Long-sought-after Carbonate minerals were spotted recently by researchers while surveying the intact bedrock layers with the CRISM Spectrometer aboard NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. This indicated that Mars had neutral to alkaline water when the minerals formed. Carbonates dissolve quickly in acid thus challenging the concept that an exclusively acidic environment dominated the planet. This finding indicates different types of watery environments existed on Mars that may have supported life.
Bethany Ehlmann, from Brown University said, "The carbonates are regional rather than global in nature, and therefore, are too limited to account for enough carbon dioxide to form a thick atmosphere, we have found evidence that at least one region that was potentially more hospitable to life."

A new study has suggested that rock varnish could provide a niche habitat for microbial life on Mars and in other extraterrestrial environments devoid of liquid water. The study was undertaken by a research team led by Kimberly R. Kuhlman, of the Tucson-based Planetary Science Institute. The team found bacteria associated with rock varnish in an area where the surrounding soils were essentially devoid of life. Rock varnish is an extremely slow-growing coating that forms on the surfaces of rocks in arid and semiarid climates. In Southwestern deserts, it often appears as a tough, dark stain on light-colored canyon walls. Ancient petroglyphs are often found etched into rock varnishes.
Kuhlman's team analyzed samples of rock varnish collected from the Yungay region of Chile's Atacama Desert, which is the closest analog to Martian environments found on Earth. The bacteria apparently get most of their moisture from fog. The bacteria also are aerobic. So if Martian forms exist, they would have adapted to survive their planet's low-oxygen atmosphere, she added. Rock varnish, which consists of clay glued together with iron and manganese oxides, forms very slowly and is very thin. Thanks to ranjankul in Other News.
Editor's Note: According to NASA scientist Dr. Gilbert V. Levin, microbial life was found on Mars by the Viking Landers in 1976. Also, Chile's Atacama Desert has many indications that it has been visited by extraterrestrials. Sightings are frequent and the inhabitants claim they are inherited from the Gods.
Norman Bryden writes, "NASA has more robotic missions for Mars planned, so it is doubtful they are going to disclose about the cities on Mars." However, more and more people seem to not be buying the official line from NASA regarding Mars, so perhaps with the new administration more will be officially acknowledged. There is still time for NASA management to change. Many from NASA have already changed for the better by disclosing sightings. It's a slow process. Here is a new image with tubes that are quite large and could easily accommodate two lanes of traffic. They are around the size of Earth's highway systems, and even a bit larger according to the scales provided with the NASA image. This image is approximately 1 km wide. 1 km equals 1000 meters, so looking at the image the width of the white lines would be around 10 meters wide (about 33 feet.). The white lines do appear to be enclosed in different locations. Image is M08-05725 1999-10-23T15:33:06.61 SCET Image width: 1024 pixels Latitude of image center is 67.67°S Longitude 12.34°W Scaled pixel width is 2.77 meters.

Editors Note: A fissure is a natural junction or line of separation within a single intact mass of stone. A fissure is not a defect, it is formed when two separate flows of liquid hot magma merge into a single mass. These large white lines are not typical of fissures that are often seen in granite or other geological formations around volcanoes. Some of these lines appear to be supported by bridge like structures.
FAIRFIELD -- We were driving to Sacramento, along the I-80 E, as we entering Fairfield, my husband Robert asked, "What kind of plane is that?" I looked up and noticed three large, dark red circular lights pulsating in a line, one would light and fade, then the next would light and fade and then the last would light and fade. The lighting and fading of the red lights was slow and steady, but definitely in a continual linear pattern. Visible as well was one large dark green circle that was lit steadily. I said "It's just a plane", but he insisted, saying he thought it was something else, as it did not have the typical white strobes and wingtip lights common on aircraft. I continued to look as it flew toward us. I looked up through the moon roof to see it pass directly overhead. It was a dark grey scalene triangle shaped craft, with not only the pulsing red and steady green lights, but with three more of the same pulsing red lights along the tail end of the triangle. I told my husband it was definitely NOT a plane-it was a TRIANGLE. It was passing 500 feet above us and was approximately 400 feet long, and 150 feet wide at the wider end of the triangle. It filled up our entire view.
I continued to watch it, but in a few seconds, it seemed to disappear. We definitely felt after seeing it that we'd seen an unidentified craft of some sort, that was definitely not a plane. My husband was stationed on an aircraft carrier, so he is familiar with planes. I am a trained scientist, with much experience technically/scientifically describing and "de-bunking" things in the name of "science". I have technical and mathematical expertise-I was skeptical about it initially but changed my mind quickly, as my eyes told me I HAD to believe what was right in front of them. We created this drawing of what we saw. Thanks to MUFON CMS
NA NIGUEL -- On December 27, 2008, at 7:05 PM, I saw a triangular shaped UFO that was vertical and had three amber lights. The two back lights where blinking, and sometimes at the same time it would sometimes blink with the front. Then it would change sides and blink on the left then on the right. Then the two back lights went off and also the front light disappeared. Then it reappeared backwards. The sighting lasted one minute. I saw three lights behind Saddleback Mountain that looked like airplane fog lights that were moving at the same speed as the other ones. They disappeared behind Saddleback Mountain.
Comments: The video was taken with a cell phone camera. The make and model of camera is not known. The witness report is somewhat confusing. I have written to the witness in an attempt to clarify the report and the short video. Without more information little can be concluded. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com
LOS ANGELES -- On December 31, 2008, the skies were a bit hazy and you could only see very bright stars and planets. I had just finished parking my car in my garage at 5:50 AM and was walking around the corner to my apartment building when I looked up and saw a very bright object emerge from behind a tree moving west to east. It was too low to be a satellite (about 249 miles too low!) and had no strobe or wing lights. It made no sound as it passed overhead. It was low enough to hear any engine noise and there was none. The light was white and a little larger than Venus. About 10 seconds after I sighted the object it got a bit dimmer. I figured that it had passed behind some of the haze. This meant the object was probably around 5,000 to 10,000 feet. I continued to watch the object until it was out of sight. The whole sighting took about 8 to 10 minutes.
Comments: The witness must have been in an area free of the fog that was shown in the official weather observation. I originally thought that the light could have been a satellite or the International Space Station. A check of satellite positions showed no bright satellites in the area and moving in the direction described by the witness. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com
PANAMA CITY -- On New Year's Eve, December 31, 2008, at 11:59 PM, I saw what I first thought was a shooting star, but that was traveling fast horizontally toward the ocean. Then while over ocean the light slowed down considerably then kind of hovered and then disappeared. I viewed the circular white object almost five minutes. What was strange is it started out as a streak like a meteor then changed to a solid object about the size of a star or planet then hovered in my direction and disappeared. Comments: Given the description by the witness I have no explanation for what was seen. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com
NORTHERN LAKE COUNTY -- On January 3, 2009, at 9:00 PM, driving home heading east on Griffin View Drive I noticed an object also heading east. There were three round lights at the tip of each wing, with one on the tail. As we drove we noticed it was flying very low and slowly and we were directly underneath it. It was stealth shaped and we were able to see through the underbelly and the cockpit. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research http://www.hbccufo.org/
ATLANTA – My wife and I had just parked outside the leasing office of our apartment on January 4, 2009, at 5:35 PM, ten minutes before sunset, when I spotted a disc shaped object in the sky to the north. It was a grey/metallic virtually camouflaged disc, against a dull grey overcast sky. I turned to my wife, who is somewhat a skeptic, and said "OK, tell me that's NOT a UFO". She couldn't see anything, I pointed and she spotted the object. We soon realized there were actually three objects, and moments later a forth floated out of a cloud.
They were about the size of a grain of rice at arm's length and made no noise. They were very close to the underside of the lowest cloud layer, as the clouds would sometimes obscure them momentarily. They moved slowly northeast in formation but each disc wobbled slightly around its center axis - kind of like if you slowly spun a plate on your finger, how it would wobble up and down whilst rotating. I took a picture using my iPhone, and you can just about make out 4 dots. The phone's sensor isn't clean or sophisticated enough to decipher any major detail, and the fairly wide focal length of the camera makes the objects appear smaller than they were. I've done some contrast enhancement in Photoshop, which shows there is definitely something there.
ADAIRSVILLE -- Tom Sheets, State Director MUFONGA reports that on December 29, 2008, at 9:19 PM, in northwest Georgia an adult male resident of Calhoun and a friend were driving west along Old Dixie Highway near 41 Hwy. Witness had just checked his watch at 9:18 PM and within a few moments a bright, fast moving glowing sphere flew over his vehicle traveling west. Witness stated that it appeared to be about 50-60 feet above ground level, silent and leaving no trail or train. Coloration was white to blue-white. The object was about 1/4 the mass of the full moon and was last observed at low altitude passing over an adjacent tree-line still westbound. Witness indicated he had never seen anything moving so fast. The law enforcement authorities in both Gordon and Bartow Counties stated no other reports had been received.
HEPHZIBAH – On December 17, 2008, in Richmond County, vicinity of Augusta, a couple was outside using their spa when three unusual red star-like lights were observed in the southern sky. Within a few minutes three amber lights were observed to hover and move around along with 6-7 other lights that seemed to be darting about the sky. Thereafter the witnesses heard the sound of a large aircraft from the area of their airport and then observed something similar to a 'row' of stars flicker on and off and seemingly follow one another. The local police department denied any knowledge, but a recent newspaper article had cited some military operations at the nearby Fort Gordon.
RICHMOND COUNTY NEAR AUGUSTA -- The same night in same general vicinity at 6:41 PM, a motorist observed four star-like amber lights to appear in unison, move apart and vanish. Then it was repeated in a different part of the sky. A MUFONGA member near Augusta also observed several star-like amber lights in the southern sky over Fort Gordon the same night. These lights demonstrated short range movements then faded away in 4-5 seconds. The witness had the impression that it may have been conventional objects. Coastal Region ASD Dave Marchant is looking into these cases.
CHATSWORTH -- On December 29, 2008, at 9:10PM, in the North Georgia Highlands a female homemaker stated, "I have noticed balls of light near my home in recent years." She had made an effort to both capture these lights and succeeded on this occasion with a video clip and two photographs. Witness stated that she had considered Iridium flares or space debris, but the lack of movement and length of duration gave her doubts. The video segment offered a colorful flashing orb (using zoom) to the southeast that was made at 1:46 AM. Sirius and Rigel were in bright evidence in the SE skies. Investigation continues.
CHATSWORTH/MURRAY COUNTY -- At 8:30 PM, an adult male photographed a 28% brighter moon on December 12, 2008, and located a small sphere-like image near the moon's disc. This witness then evaluated his photo, doing an excellent job. He forwarded a copy to a photographer friend and they feel it was probably a photographic anomaly. Investigators Mark and Leslie Moore of Blairsville also performed some work on the photo, with Dr. Maccabee later chiming in that it was in all probability a lens flare. This was a concise CMS report from a good witness, whom we are pleased to say is now a new member of MUFONGA. Thanks to Tom Sheets, SD MUFONGA, Administrator for Professional Standards.
WAHIAWA - I went out on December 29, 2008, at 6:19 PM, to take pictures of the mountain in Wahiawa, on the Island of Oahu about 20 miles northwest of Honolulu and took 50 photos and some of the photos had strange objects in them. I think they are UFOs. I did not alter the photos in any way. I was using a Kodak Easyshare 7.2 mega-pixel digital camera. The time was about 6:19 PM. I was on my way from Wahiawa going down to the North Shore. I stopped to take photos of the mountains. Latitude: 21.5 Degrees North Longitude: 158.02 Degrees West.
Comments: Most of the photos sent by the witness were taken during the daytime and reveal birds. However, the witness took a few photos after dark on the following day (December 29, 2008). One of the photos shows a bright light. This light probably has a conventional explanation, but I am not sure of the source of this light. The Space Station nor other bright satellites were visible. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com
NAMPA -- On January 1, 2009, at 9:30 PM, I was driving when I noticed a green glow to the west. I took multiple glances and concluded that the object had a green tail that looked as if it were a mist of gas. At the front of the mist/gas was an oval shape that was the same green color however it was denser than the tail. It was moving slowly from above the cloud bank heading northwest. Eventually it faded out of sight. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research http://www.hbccufo.org/
LAYFAYETTE -- It was New Years and I wanted to get some pictures of fireworks for my 8 year old daughter Tai. I looked up and noticed three orange orbs flying slowly north. I realized what I was seeing and screamed for my wife and daughter and started videotaping. I have four different videos from that night. We counted thirteen flying orbs that flew slowly across the sky. I then called my Mom, and Corey a friend who said they looked to be 3000 to 5000 feet high, but that would mean that the size of those things was huge. I thought they were about 500 to 1000 feet high. We contacted other relatives who also saw them. They would start on one horizon and fly to the other. My nephew also got some video and a still picture of them making a triangle. Thanks to MUFON CMS
SILVER SPRING -- Around 3 PM, on January 3, 2009, I was in downtown and stopped to photograph an unusually dense collection of contrails heading toward Dulles Airport using my iPhone camera. Upon inspecting the photograph, I noticed a black object above the contrails that I had not noticed while taking the picture. There appear to be two spheres with some indication of exhaust or disturbance to its lower left. The object does not appear to be a bird. Thanks to MUFON CMS
BURLINGTON – On January 3, 2009, at 3:15 PM, I counted 18 small UFO's in the east higher than single engine aircraft and lower than commercial aircraft. They were flying in all sort of impossible angles that aircraft cannot do in a group like dog fighting for over 40 seconds and then they leveled off and flew west in a group straight over 200 knots. They were quiet. They looked white and gray. They were white when the sun reflected off the bottom. When they leveled off and flew west they were gray. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com
KING OF PRUSSIA -- On December 17, 2008 at 4:32 PM, I was looking out the window of my office building on South Warner Road. I was on the second floor, and the front of the building is all glass. The view is amazing from my office as there are no buildings blocking the view of a large expanse of sky. I noticed a large fast moving glowing light moving across the sky and through the clouds. I ran down the stairs and out the front door stumbling to get my blackberry camera on and ready to take a picture. I ran into the parking lot and was able to get a decent image of what I saw. It moved horizontally to the ground and was very large. I took a picture but it moved so quickly out of sight. I have a color print from our copier at work and a jpg from my blackberry available. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research http://www.hbccufo.org/
PHILADELPHIA – Stanley Ruchniewski writes that, "On December 25, 2008, at 10PM, I noticed an advancing orange red light approaching from the east over New Jersey at a low altitude of about 1000 feet. As it got closer I could make out three lights in a V shaped triangle. This craft was two to three times the width of an airliner. The object then made a hard right 90 degree turn (north). There was very little bank. Then the lights went to a quick dim. I could see three separate pin point white lights attached to the outline of the craft before it went completely out. The underside of the craft looked like a saucer with the three lights spaced towards the front. There were no other planes in the sky and there was some moonlight and the lights did not blink. Thanks to Stanley Ruchniewski
Editor's Note: There have been numerous reports of this aircraft over New Jersey. It is usually reported has very dark in color, flying lower than normal traffic, with an elongated triangular shape but not as elongated as the California drawing.
PHILLIPSBURG -- On December 29, 2008, 5:55 AM, Looking west, a pinpoint of light (no tail) was seen descending at a high rate of speed. It was too slow to be a shooting star, possibly an asteroid. Shared info with a co-worker who lives above Easton, Pa. later in the day, he said his wife saw a similar object at the same time. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research http://www.hbccufo.org/
Around 10:30 PM, on New Year's Eve we were outside grilling, when my buddy called my attention to many solid yellow/orange roundish lights all identical in size and brightness began slowly but steadily began appearing out of the tree line in the sky. At first I thought that they were some kind of homemade balloon lanterns but I studied them further and they were 3 or 4 times the size of the largest stars. People were outside celebrating with fireworks. Two or three sets of lights were arranged in a triangular formation and others were strung along solo following the same course. They were all moving the same rate of speed without blinking or twinkling. Sixteen were strung in a path about as wide as my vertical hand raised arm's length. Everything about them was constant - speed, distance, course, formation, color, size, and brilliance. As they began to move farther away, I noticed a slight changing of course or slowing down, then a quick fading effect to disappearance. All 16 faded out/disappeared at about the same point. I am still wondering how to explain to myself what these were and how large they could have been. I would estimate though minimally between the size of a large bus and a small house, maybe larger. And as for altitude, I would best guess 4000-10000 ft. due to clarity of seen lights. Thanks to MUFON CMS.
MILE END, ADELAIDE -- On December 30, 2008, the witness saw a black object travelling at about 2000km/h, at an altitude of 700 meters. It had a pale white light on its under carriage. I observed it for one and a half minutes at 10:50 PM. I waited for ten minutes after to listen for engine or wind turbulence, but there was no sound. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research http://www.hbccufo.org/
EVATT CANBERRA -- On January 1, 2009, at 00:45 AM, arrived home from a friend's home, and was called into the backyard by my husband who pointed out multiple points of light in the sky - all roughly equidistant and travelling in the same direction parallel to the horizon. All objects appeared to have the same speed. Once they got to a certain point, the light disappeared. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research http://www.hbccufo.org/
TUNGKU BEACH -- I was going for my photo assignment during the New Year Eve, heading towards a resort hotel to cover the fireworks display. I positioned myself at Tungku Beach facing the hotel so that I can frame the fireworks and the hotel all in one frame. When I was there and the fireworks started, I started firing shots with my camera using a cable release connected to my Canon EOS 5D digital camera + Canon 70-200MM F2.8 IS (L) lens and a Manfrotto tripod stand. The fireworks started exactly 12.00 AM (+0800GMT) at The Empire Hotel and Country Club. The fireworks lasted for about 25 minutes. When I was processing the RAW images captured from the camera, I realize there was one shot which had something appearing on the left side of the screen so I zoomed in to see what it was. I was shocked! In the image, the object seemed to be hovering above the water and it looks as if it's not too far away from us. Strangely...the object wasn't being seen with my naked eye when I was there. Thousands of people gathered around the same area to view the fireworks. If I were to see it with my eyes, probably the others would have seen it too however it wasn't visible as it was quite dark from our view. Or maybe... our eye were drawn towards where the fireworks were so I didn't notice it as it seems like the object positioned itself at a darker area in the photo. Thanks to MUFON CMS and the Borneo Bulletin
NORTHERN PORT COQUITLAM B.C. -- On January 2, 2009, just after midnight, four witnesses observed a fireball (tail) but front part was circular. It was some sort of vehicle, round half moon shaped and about ten times bigger than a plane. It was some sort of fireball or something and was huge. I have never seen anything so fast ever in my life. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research http://www.hbccufo.org/
SCARBOROUGH – Paul Shishis sends this photo of a UFO over electric power lines. This object was taken at work after lunch- just over main hydro lines south of work on November 14, 2007. I remember this craft followed me to work from lunch that day. As it continues today and followed me in the night-- half way home 25 kms right to my home. Any guesses why they are interested to follow- under some sort of controlled remote viewing maybe ?
Editors Note : Reports continue of UFOs apparently taking on electrical energy from various power lines and power plants. It is assumed that the electrical power is used in overcoming gravity. Recent reports indicate the sides of the craft have evenly spaced indentions that may be used to establish an electrical grid around the fuselage.
Reviewing pictures from a group trip to Indonesia I saw the object in the attached photo on December 4, 2008, at 11:15 AM. I do not think anyone saw the object as no one said anything. I am in awe after discovering this. Thanks to MUFON CMS
DUBLIN -- On January 3, 2009, at 9:10 PM sat at home when my brother called me out the back garden too show me too glowing orange objects in the sky. They were too close to be stars and the way one of them moved was quite bizarre. I have never seen anything move like that before, but I have still not heard anything about it on are local news or anything. I Googled UFO over Dublin and on Yahoo answers a guy said how he had seen the same too objects and how he explained it was exactly how I had seen it and he posted it 3 days before I seen them and in the same direction looking to the south east. I'm still quite gobsmacked by what I saw to be honest because the second object vanished quite quickly but the other object seemed to get brighter. The people that live next door were out their back garden looking at this too and they, just like me can't explain what they saw. Maybe you could shed some light on this for me. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research http://www.hbccufo.org/
CHIGWELL ESSEX -- On December 17, 2008, 1900 – 2000, a hundred plus bright orange objects ascending similar paths, all headed right to left, covering approx 120 degrees of sky, some accelerating some decelerating, some information, some slowing and waiting for others to complete formation between 7 and 8 PM. Numbers ascending; ones, twos, threes to eights. 10 sec to 30 sec gaps before next group. More and more of us watching in amazement as the count went from 20 to approx 130 before it stopped. As this all happened within the stacking circle of planes to Stansted, this must have also been witnessed by many pilots. Clear sky; planes distinguishable because of navigational lights, circular motion, and obviously engine noise. There were orange objects in groups, travelling in same direction and silent.
BOURNVILLE, BIRMINGHAM -- On December 21, 2008, 9:15 PM, whilst smoking outside in the garden we spotted two circular, bright orange lights in the night sky from the East, the orange lights moved to the front of the house moving West, we ran to the front of the house and watched it change into two oblong flying objects, flying parallel with each other, no sound came from these flying objects and they were travelling very slowly across the sky, the lights had changed now to white lights, they disappeared into the night sky. Five adults witnessed this sighting who would not have believed in UFOs until this evening, we reported the sightings to the local police and to the local newspaper but there was no response, hope we were not the only ones who spotted these UFOs that night. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research http://www.hbccufo.org/
BRIMINGTON, CHESTERFIELD, DERBYSHIRE -- On December 27, 2008, 7:30 PM, my dad called me to come and look outside. We could see approximately 6-10 objects in the sky coming towards our house. They were flying at a fair speed but there was no sound of any engines or motors. We thought they may have been balloons but they all seemed to follow the exact same pattern or course, where a balloon would move about in the breeze. They were emitting a light which looked like a flickering flame. My brother who lives two miles away also saw them. They were in the sky for around 5-10 minutes then they disappeared one after another all in about the same position in the sky. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research http://www.hbccufo.org/
ROCHESTER, KENT -- On December 30, 2008, at 6:30 AM, I saw one possibly two angular triangle shaped objects very close together very bright. Thought maybe aircraft but no jet noise or landing lights. Seemed to be high up, moved off very quickly in SW direction. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research http://www.hbccufo.org/
MANCHESTER -- I just want to report a sighting that happened a couple of days ago (January 3, 2009) over the Denton area of Tameside. My fiancé and I witnessed 6 bright orange balls travelling, it would appear, in unison towards Manchester about 12:15 AM. I ran to get my camera and when I went outside one of the balls was still visible but had changed direction. The other 5 were out of sight. I managed to take 3 pictures of the single one. Funny thing is I mentioned the sighting to my brother today and he said he had seen the same thing. So, I'm sure we can't have been the only ones to see them.
KETTERING -- On December 31, 2008, we were saying goodbye to relatives outside our front door and looked up and we saw this orange object which was immediately in front of us in the sky, heading in a South or South Easterly direction. I am confident it was not a firework or some form of Chinese Lantern. I immediately thought it was a meteor as it was heading in a straight line. The object faded out as it passed over. I have never seen anything like it before. It appeared to be a meteor burning up in the atmosphere, 40000 feet. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Researcher, author and lecturer Kathleen Marden will be the guest speaker for the January 25, 2009, MUFON of Georgia meeting to be held at the Chamblee library in Atlanta at 2 PM. Kathy was MUFON Director of Field Investigator Training for ten years. Kathleen has lectured at numerous locations including the Trump Plaza Hotel in Atlantic City, NJ. Kathy was thirteen on September 20, 1961, when her aunt Betty Hill phoned to report that, the previous evening, she and Barney had encountered a flying saucer in New Hampshire's White Mountains. Kathy has intimate knowledge of the Hill's biographical histories, and the never before published historical data pertaining to their sensational story. Kathy believes that there is conclusive evidence that the Hills were abducted. This new information, along with the Hills' historical records and scientific reports, became the foundation for her book Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience coauthored with scientific ufologist/ nuclear physicist Stanton T. Friedman. Autographed copies of Kathy's book can be purchased through Kathy Marden's website. Thanks to Tom Sheets, SD MUFONGA, Administrator for Professional Standards. 800-696-2944

Only a few people who have enjoyed the files for almost ten years or less, have chosen to provide a donation.
