· Falling Space Debris or Fireball
· We May Not Wish to Gaze Upon by David Jacobs, PhD.
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena were spotted over: Alaska, Arizona, California, Florida, Hawaii, Kansas, Indiana, New Jersey, Ohio, Texas, Virginia and Washington. UFOs were also seen in Canada, China, Greece, South Africa and the UK/England.
These Files assume that extraterrestrial intelligent life not only exists, but my hypothesis is that the over two hundred UFOs reported each week represent technologically advanced spacecraft conducting surveillance of Earth. I personally became interested in UFOs when I chased one over England when flying for the US Air Force. I've been investigating them ever since. The US Air Force under Project Blue Book investigated UFOs for more than twenty years, we continue this research. I believe God of the universe has spread life throughout the cosmos and UFO's are visiting us in ever increasing numbers.
In 1947, Commander General Nathan Twining signed Air Material Command's message that UFOs were real. As requested by AC/AS-2 there is presented below the considered opinion of this command concerning the so-called "Flying Discs":
a. The phenomenon reported is something real and not visionary or fictitious.
b. There are objects probably approximately the shape of a disc, of such appreciable size as to appear to be as large as man-made aircraft.
c. There is the possibility that some of the incidents may be caused by natural phenomena, such as meteors.
d. The reported operating characteristics such as extreme rates of climb, maneuverability (particularly in roll), and action which must be considered evasive when sighted or contacted by friendly aircraft and radar, lend belief to the possibility that some of the objects are controlled either manually, automatically or remotely. Signed Commander General Nathan Twining. In 1953-57 he served as Chief of Staff of the Air Force and from 1957 to 1960 as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Canada has opened some of its UFO files, but not them all of course. http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/ufo/index-e.html
Shirley's Bay, Ontario -- In 1950, a senior radio engineer from the Department of Transport, Wilbert B. Smith, made a request to his superiors to make use of a laboratory and the department's field facilities in a study of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and the physical principles connected to them. Smith spearheaded Project Magnet with the purpose of studying, among other occurrences, magnetic phenomena, which he believed would open up a new and useful technology.
The goals of Project Magnet were fueled by the concepts of geomagnetism, and the belief that it may be possible to use and manipulate the Earth's magnetic field as a propulsion method for vehicles. Tests conducted by Smith were reported in November 1951 and they stated that sufficient energy was abstracted from the Earth's field to operate a voltmeter at 50 milliwatts. Smith believed he was on the "track of something that may prove to be the introduction to a new technology." Smith believed that there was a correlation between his studies and investigations into UFOs: "...the existence of a different technology is borne out by the investigations which are being carried on at the present time in relation to flying saucers.. I feel that the correlation between our basic theory and the available information on saucers checks too closely to be mere coincidence" (Smith, Geo-Magnetics, Department of Transport, November 21, 1950).
It was believed by both Smith and other government departments involved, that there was much to learn from UFOs. Investigations into these sightings and interviews with the observers were the starting point for Project Magnet. In connection with the establishment of Project Magnet, members of other government agencies formed a committee solely dedicated to "flying saucer" reports. This committee was sponsored by the Defense Research Board and called "Project Second Story." Its main purpose was to collect, catalogue and correlate data from UFO sighting reports. In a summary of 1952 sighting reports, Smith noted common significant characteristics of UFOs: "They are a hundred feet or more in diameter; they can travel at speeds of several thousand miles per hour; they can reach altitudes well above those which should support conventional air craft or balloons; and ample power and force seem to be available for all required maneuvers" (Smith, Project Magnet report, 1952, p. 6).
In his closing, Smith stated, "Taking these factors into account, it is difficult to reconcile this performance with the capabilities of our technology, and unless the technology of some terrestrial nation is much more advanced than is generally known, we are forced to the conclusion that the vehicles are probably extra-terrestrial, in spite of our prejudices to the contrary." (Smith, Project Magnet report, 1952, p. 6).
It was with these goals in mind that Smith set up an observatory in Shirley's Bay, Ontario, ten miles outside of Ottawa. Based on the conclusions of the 1952 sighting report, Smith thought that these vehicles would emit physical characteristics that could be measured. In October of 1952, he set up the observatory to attempt to measure magnetic or radio noise disturbances. Many more sighting reports were investigated by Project Magnet, but in 1954, the project was shut down. Further information about Project Magnet is found in the meeting minutes of Project Second Story in the search database. http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/ufo/002029-1400.01-e.html
Considered a world expert in electromagnetism and Director of Project Magnet, Wilbert B. Smith states, “I made discrete inquiries through the Canadian Embassy staff in Washington who were able to obtain for me the following information;
a. The matter is the most highly classified subject in the United States Government, rating higher even than the H-bomb,
b. Flying saucers exist.
c. Their modus operandi is unknown but concentrated effort is being made by a small group headed by Dr. Vannavar Bush.
d. The entire matter is considered by the United States authorities to be of tremendous significance. I was further informed that the United States authorities are investigating along quite a number of lines which might possibly be related to the saucers such as mental phenomena and I gather that they are not doing too well since they indicated that if Canada s doing anything at all in geo-magnetics they would welcome a discussion with suitably accredited Canadians.”
DALLAS - The Federal Aviation Administration has received numerous reports of falling debris across Texas, which could be related to the February 10, 2009, collision of two fully intact satellites - Iridium 33 and Russia's spent Cosmos 2251 communications craft over Siberia. Some of the callers around midmorning Sunday reported what looked like a fireball in the sky. FAA spokesman Roland Herwig said officials suspect the debris could be related to the collision, but he said that had not been confirmed. It is difficult to predict and avoid such events despite the increasingly sophisticated orbital surveillance technology in use.
A computer-generated image released by the European Space Agency (ESA) shows trackable objects in Low Earth Orbit (LOE). The crash of satellites created two clouds of debris that were being tracked by experts. (Xinhua/AFP Photo) "While it took 50 years for Earth orbit to become sufficiently congested it will take only about 10 years before another can be expected," said Don Kessler, an orbital debris expert who previously worked for NASA. Note: It's getting tougher for UFOs to fly to Earth with all that debris circling the Earth.
David Jacobs, PhD., Temple University writes: “The babies look like a mixture of human and alien.” Some look more alien, some more human, and most a balanced mixture. Budd Hopkins coined the term “hybrid” to describe them. But what was the purpose of creating these children? Although at first there appeared to be no evidence for a motivation, the evidence was there; it just took some years of digging to find it. The first clue came to me in a session with a young abductee in the mid-1990s. She had been engaged in conversations with an adult hybrid male who visited her often and whom she had known since she was a child. She would see this hybrid both onboard a UFO and in her home setting. During the conversations, she asked him about his mother and father. He told her his father was like him, and his mother was like her. Suddenly I realized the concept of hybridization was different than I had envisioned. I had originally thought the aliens would take an egg and sperm, put them together, then alter or add something—perhaps DNA—to the zygote, and then implant it in the woman. Eventually, it would grow into a hybrid whose appearance fit on a bell-shaped curve: Some of the offspring would look mainly alien, some mainly human, and most would look like an even mixture of both alien and human. But what her hybrid said was different than that, and I began to realize the hybridization process was far more complex than what I had originally imagined.
What I posited was that rather than adding just alien DNA to the fertilized ova, the DNA from a hybrid is put in that zygote. What results is a skewed bell-shaped curve where more of the offspring look human-like, less look in the middle, and less look alien-like. When the aliens repeat that process enough, the product is hybrids in various stages of increasingly human appearance. I have arbitrarily divided these hybrids into early-stage, middle-stage, late-stage, and human-stage hybrids. The early-stage ones look quite alien, although they have some hair, they are very thin, and they have large black eyes with a little bit of white corneas in the eyes. They have very thin, wispy hair and oddly shaped faces with pointed chins. Their bodies are thin as well. They are seldom seen outside the confines of a UFO, in which they do tasks required of them to help out with the abduction program. The middle-stage hybrids look more human. They have large black eyes with more white showing. They have thin, but more, hair. They have bodies that are not so thin. They also help with abduction procedures.
The late-stage hybrids are attached to abductees as personal friends and help the abductees to learn to work projects for “the future.” They are seen in public and can often pass for human. They live onboard the UFOs and make forays into normal human life as part of the abduction program. They do not have a life here among us. The human-stage hybrids mainly deal with abductees in their normal human environment. They are, on the surface, indistinguishable from humans. They have different biological and neurological processes than humans that give them special abilities, such as being able to control humans. Most hybrids onboard a UFO can be identified by their clothes, which I call “hybrid garb.” For the females, it is a pull-over shift, usually with three-quarter length sleeves, that comes to about six inches above the floor. The males wear slacks and a top, both of which are usually beige or off-white. Early- and middle-stage hybrids almost always wear this type of clothing. The late-stage hybrids onboard an object may at times wear the same hybrid outfit, but more often they wear regular human casual clothes. The human-stage hybrids wear human clothes.

NASA's Bethany Ehlmann states, “Ancient Mars, like the Earth today, hosted a variety of watery environment.” Ehlmann led a study that's opened up the possibility that life existed on the planet Mars deep in its past. She's on the science team of a NASA mission that looks at minerals on Mars' surface. What Ehlmann found were patches of magnesium carbonate. Bethany Ehlmann: Carbonate is kind of like a signature mineral of neutral to alkaline pH conditions in the waters from which they've formed. Scientists have thought that, long ago, Mars was intensely acidic and inhospitable to life. But Ehlmann's study suggests otherwise. We asked her why....
Bethany Ehlmann: Because carbonate tends to dissolve in acid. And the fact that we see carbonate persisting to the present means that it never experienced these acid conditions, and instead it preserves the record of ancient Mars that was perhaps more mild for life. The carbonate is similar to limestone on Earth. And like limestone fossils, fossils of early Martian life might be preserved in the carbonate found on Mars.

Editor's Note: According to NASA scientist Dr. Gilbert V. Levin, living microbial life was found on Mars by the Viking Landers in 1976
Adak Island -- I was a radioman with a top secret clearance stationed at the Navfac in either late fall or early spring 1973. The guys that operated the microwave dish antennas told us our astronauts orbit would be flying over that night. We waited for our capsule to come around again and when it did a pinpoint of light about as large the capsule came shooting in at a high rate of speed and kind of zigzagged around the astronauts and making right angle maneuvers then shot back out and was gone. This all took about five seconds. My friend and I both looked at each other and said, "Did you see that?"We both knew we could not talk about it because of our clearances. I don't remember if this was the last Apollo mission or was it one of the unmanned Skylab missions. Thanks to Brian Vike - HBCC UFO Research: http://www.brianvike.com
Phoenix – On February 15, 2009, a cylinder shaped object was captured while looking at Phoenix Webcams http://www.phoenixvis.net/supm1/highres.htm Object on right enlarged. Note this object is similar to cylinder filmed over the UK.
Tucson -- Michael Cohen reports, “On February 11, 2009, several witnesses have come forward to describe a remarkable sighting of a classic saucer shaped UFO with red glowing lights. One witness was sitting and watching television with her husband, and her daughter when she noticed a UFO through a large glass sliding door that looks out towards the Tucson Mountains. The witness described the object as disc shaped with non-strobing red lights at its front and rear. She estimated it was moving north at an altitude of about 150 meters. The object then ‘exploded' in a large blaze of bright white light and sped away horizontal to the earth at an incredible speed. At this point she alerted her husband. Soon afterwards helicopters were seen moving in the direction of the craft. The witness's husband, who had served in the Air Force, thought the helicopters might have been Blackhawks.
Another witness was driving a truck just outside of Tucson when he saw pretty much the same thing. He described the explosion and subsequent fantastic speed as ‘unbelievable, probably alien'. Local police also noted that a few calls had been taken regarding the incident. http://www.allnewsweb.com/page2992994.php
Chatsworth -- Francine T. sent this video of Ufo's stacked on top of each other. She writes, “Francine here, I wanted to send you my video of stacked ufo's i taped just north of Los Angeles.” They look very similar to the picture's that were taken in Alto, Texas recently. I taped these stacked ufo's for over a half an hour, until I ran out of tape. I never saw these before, but they did show up again in another location on the mountain. I have seen picture's of these stacked ufo's at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSioikGxdqU&feature=email
Mt. Laguna -- Looking on internet for pictures of the snow in Mt. Laguna. Reported sighting on February 18, 2009, on weather cam. Looked thru photos westward direction . Noticed on 2 photos momentary objects in the sky. First was a disk, 2nd, was a harrier type object.
I was filming in my back yard for birds I set my camera on a tripod and let it run on its own. For an hour and when I played it back I caught a few different objects one object is on film at 11 mins 14 seconds. one at 12 minutes 20 seconds. I was excited when I saw a disc shaped object in the upper left area that just popped on the screen and then popped off. The next one flew in to view than backed up than flew forward at the sun as it turned out of the sunlight it went up out of sight. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Editor's Note: I saw them on film along with many birds but was unable to capture a still of the UFO.
Haiku Maui -- On February 11, 2009, about 8:30 PM, I saw a bright light in the sky. I was completely sober at the time. It hovered for about 2 hours and moved very slowly until it was below the tree-line and out of my vision. I called my friend, who didn't believe me, but called back and said he saw the same bright light over the west Maui's. Problem was that the light I was looking at was nowhere near that area. So I'm kind of amazed and confused. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research
Diamond Head – On February 8, 2009, I was looking out from a hotel room overlooking Waikiki and noticed an object hovering over or just past Diamond Head at a distance difficult to determine. The UFO was a dark blob shaped object that might be a Chinook helicopter because I saw them fly over Aloha Stadium just before the Pro Bowl kickoff. The dark video game like controller object hovered with two appendages either tethered or staying to different sides of the object. It hovered over Diamond Head for about a minute then moved out over the Pacific and disappeared. I went for the camera after it had started moving west. Someone on the beach was pointing at it. I took images with a 7.1 megapixel camera with a 4X optical and 16X digital zoom. The first two shots are at zero magnification but this one at full zoom. If it was a Chinook helicopter, it appeared as it went to the edge of space. Thanks to MUFON CMS
INDIANAPOLIS -- I was letting my dogs out around 8:30 pm, on February 12, 2009, when I saw a very bright star directly above the house. My kids came over and looked at the bright object. When I looked at this thing through my camera, it seemed to be changing colors. A half an hour later we noticed it began moving further east very slowly. I have pictures of the object. It appears to change shapes and colors. After an hour it finally disappeared. I also took a video with my digital camera.
The pictures I submitted are difficult to see. I used a Sony cybershot 8.1 megapixels. The first is the video, I tried to keep as steady as I could, and any movement is my hand not the object. Thanks to MUFON CMS
UFO Digest: Weird Object in Wichita
Wichita -- Tim Potter of the Wichita Eagle reports, “The craft flew fast like a jet, made a whirling sound and left an odd glow. That's how an amateur photographer described a flying machine he spotted in the skies near Rose Hill on Friday, February 6, 2009. The UFO world is now paying attention to his photograph. On Monday, the photo appeared under the headline "Weird Object in Wichita," on UFO Digest, a Canadian Web site. “The object looks like some kind of new-technology fighter jet, possibly a prototype,” said UFO Digest editor and publisher Dirk Vander Ploeg. Jarrod Bartlett, spokesman for Boeing Integrated Defense Systems-Wichita, said in an e-mail that, “He checked with flight operations staff, and they were not able to identify the aircraft.” McConnell Air Force Base declined to comment on the craft.
The man who captured the image said he took the photo at 8:42 AM, Friday near 210th and Prairie Creek Road, about three miles south of Rose Hill. "The object came out of the clouds really fast. and sounded kind of like a jet but much, much softer and had a whirling sound with it. "I only got off one shot because it was really close before I realized it was something different. It went back upward, much like a jet, and was gone."There was an odd pinkish glow in the sky behind it."He noticed that the flying machine's exterior looked black and shiny. He estimated the object came no closer than 1,000 feet above the ground. It swooped in as if it was on "a bombing run." http://www.kansascity.com/news/breaking_news/story/1025246.html
Millinocket Lake -- My brother and I were hauling fire wood across the frozen Millinocket Lake to our remote cabin in our All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) on February 9, 2009, in the shadow of Mount Katahdin. About 9 PM, two miles across the lake in front of a mountain I noticed a yellow light. The light shot a spot light down on the shoreline of the lake for several seconds. I alerted my brother and we watched the light as it followed right beside us the rest of the way across the lake. About 200 yards from shore, we stopped the ATV and started taking pictures of the light. When we stopped, the light stopped and was around 1/2 mile from us and 50 feet above the tree line.
The light slowly turned from yellow to orange and expanded to three lines of red light forming a triangle with a distinct black spot in the middle. We turned the ATV toward the light so that our head lights were pointing directly at it and sat there for ten minutes just watching in the cold. We drove off the lake and the triangle was blocked from our view for eight minutes while we unloaded the wood. When we returned to the frozen lake, we saw a small bright red light that followed us. We stopped in the middle of the lake and noticed two red/white blinking lights coming from opposite directions. The bright, dime sized yellow light followed us for three miles before separating into three flying sets of lights.
We felt they were surrounding us and we drove as fast as the ATV would go. Suddenly, the dash lights on our brand new ATV came on and the engine shut off. It failed to start and we got out and lifted the hood to see if we could see any issues. The engine looked fine but the lights were moving closer. We climbed back in the ATV and the engine started just as the red/white light directly behind us sped up and came around us. When the red/white blinking light got to the solid red light, the solid red light disappeared. The two blinking red/white lights were now on either side of us about 200 feet altitude and one flew directly over us and left a trail of steam. The second light also passed over us and they both slowly traveled away from us and out of sight. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Grand Island -- I saw an unusual bright light about the size of a dime at arm's length from 9:20 to 9:45 PM, on February 1, 2009. The light was below the cloudy sky and I grabbed a good set of binoculars and watched for 20 minutes. It was traveling west as it kept getting lower in the sky. It appeared to change color and intensity. I was definitely not a plane or known object. It appeared white turning to red and also green and back again.
Note: The fact that skies were cloudy eliminates stars, planets, satellites as the source of the sighting. The light could have been an aircraft, but that is doubtful considering that the witness described the apparently large size of the light (size of a dime at arm's length). It should be noted that white, red, and green are the color of lights mounted on conventional aircraft. Also official weather observations show that skies were clear at Grand Island at the time of sighting. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com
Rockaway -- We were driving home on Route 80 on February 17, 2009, and all of a sudden I looked up and there were about eight tiny red lights in a weird circle that started moving pretty fast. At 8:41 PM, I looked up and they were gone. A couple minutes later there they were there again but this time in a ladder shape parallel to each other with nine red lights. They were moving and forming into really weird shapes that almost looked like a ‘Z' or almost a ‘K'. They flashed for a second and then stopped. I could not see them for a couple seconds, but there were eight and they started floating down until there was one left. Then it disappeared. At first I thought it was a UFO, but other people thought it was a landing thing for airplanes. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Westlake -- I had this photo on an "unformatted" floppy from my old Sony Mavica (set at 10X) and finally figured out how to get it off the disk. The photo was taken at 7:35 PM on December 1, 2008. The red star like object first appeared to the southwest maybe 20 degrees above the horizon and was traveling slowly to the north. After observing the object traveling north for ten minutes, and turned due west (away from me) and it went over the western horizon ten minutes later. At first, I thought the "red star" was Mars until I noticed that it was moving. On January 20, 2009 I went outside at 9 PM and as I looked due west, I observed a large stationary flame yellow round object about 30 degrees above the horizon and was ten times larger than Venus. My neighbor's dog started a ruckus, so I went back inside. About ten minutes later, I went back outside to look and the object was gone.
Note: I know the witness and he made a good argument that the object is not Mars (or any other bright celestial object). I don't believe that it was an airplane or helicopter. The photo was taken with a Sony Mavica digital camera. This is one of the older digital cameras. The resolution of this camera is low making detailed analysis difficult. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com
Franklin – -- On February 16, 2009, I was sky watching, when I saw a bright (but not nearly as bright as Venus is)star-like light appear over top the school building across the street at 8:30 PM. It began to slowly raise up, then stayed still for about 15 minutes over the school. It would brighten, then dim during this time. After about 15 minutes it began to very slowly head east across the area, and proceeding upwards. It also began to blink. I was looking out my big family room window, and when I saw it-I felt compelled to talk to it. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Baytown -- On February 2, 2009, from 8:00 to 8:45 PM, I set my camera up to take pictures of a lightning storm with my 35 mm digital camera, using an open shutter on a tripod. I just kept snapping and noticed that the light moves as fast as the lightning leaving a ghost trail. An airplane could not leave a ghost trail unless I moved the camera. Obviously I didn't move the camera otherwise the lightning would have a ghost trail as well. I was not aware of the object until I checked the photos. What is really cool is when I use image ready to create a moving photo out of all 20 pictures.
Note: The witness's photos look interesting, but given the slow shutter speed (open shutter) I believe that the red and white lights are aircraft lights. Wing lights on regular aircraft are colored red and green, while fuselage and landing gear lights are white. These lights also flash on and off. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com
Manassas -- On February 9, 2009, I was following a high flying aircraft to take photo with my new Canon Eos Rebel XSI camera using a 250mm lens set at shutter priority 1/4000 seconds on auto and continuous shutter about three frames per second. I was on my back deck ready to take airplane picture when I notice this strange object coming northeast in the opposite direction. At first it looked like a round light, but then it started to change forms. I took 41 pictures in sequence, then the object disappeared. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Yakima -- On February 7, 2009, my Mom says that every few days, this "star" appears where there are none and just disappears after staying in the sky for several hours (moves slowly across the sky), so I went out to her house to see for myself from 7 PM to 1 AM.
Sure enough, on Saturday around dusk, I noticed a very bright white "star" that changed forms over the course of about 6 hours while moving slowly from west to east. There was a blue sky and no other stars out at the first sighting around 7 PM. It was so large, it looked out of place. Thinking it was a planet, I took several photos. As you can see, it changed shapes several times, and then it simply vanished. Apparently this happens frequently and always appears in the same general area and randomly disappears.
Note: The exact times of the above photos are not known. The first photo must have been taken before 7 PM because it was still daylight. One would think by the description that the witness saw and photographed a bright planet (Venus). However, the second photo above does not support that conclusion. I have written to the witness to obtain more information. Updates will be posted. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com
Granisle -- Three UFOs hovering over Babine Lake, two of the three shot back up into the air and the one just proceeded to stay with colorful lights on February 9, 2009. A lady couldn't believe what she was seeing so she phoned another neighbor and told them to look above their home, there is a UFO overhead. I do have some of the peoples contact info (phone numbers) and will be calling them today for sure. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research and host of the Vike Report UFO Eyewitness radio show. email@example.com
SCARBOROUGH, ONTARIO -- I wanted to bring to your attention a similar picture taken in Morristown, NJ. I was amazed, after you posted Filer's Report # 7. The picture clearly illustrates. a single row of three red lights that form a large triangular shaped craft. It appears exactly, as my photo taken in Scarborough, Ontario on Dec.5, 2008- daytime shot.
This same photo had been posted earlier on Filer's Report # 6. Just another coincidence of similarity of row pattern of three lights. I also have a recent photo to share with you. On January 26, 2009, while at work I was experimented in taking a few pictures and took this photo at 10:55 AM, of a dark roundish aerial anomaly in the cloud. There is even some type of light field around this thing. Other photos taken before this picture had no dark object in them. They were all taken within seconds apart-facing south. Thus, it's not dirt on the lens, or a pixel problem. Just another example that Infra-red technology can capture anomalous images, if one experiments. Thank-you once again in compiling the many reports around the world. Thanks to Paul Michael Shishis
Liu Pan Shui City -- A remarkable UFO was seen and filmed in the province of Guizhou by an entire squadron of fire-fighters through a camera with a 700X zoom capability on January 18, 2009. One of the fire-fighters, Wang Jia Wei, noticed an odd looking, brightly flashing star moving southeast and went inside the barracks to get a Panasonic camera to zoom in on the mysterious object. The object was two rotating spinning top shaped crafts or halves of a whole craft joined at their bases. They were flashing a multitude of colors: purple, red, blue, orange, white and gold. Wang called his eight fellow fire-fighters and they observed the slow moving craft for almost an hour until the craft suddenly vanished. Twenty minutes of footage was recorded and has been shown to reporters. The Chinese Government is known to take an open minded approach to UFOs and generally regards them as fact. Report by Audrey Chan firstname.lastname@example.org
ATHENS -- A remarkable UFO incident that occurred in the skies over Athens over a year ago but was kept secret by the Greek Aviation Authority and Air Force has recently come to light and is receiving extensive media coverage. A recording of the conversation (in Greek) between the pilot involved and the airport control tower has been made public and can be listened to below.
On November 11, 2007 at 3:20 AM the captain of Olympic Airways flight 266 from Athens to London noticed an extremely unusual object moving erratically west of Athens. The object was somewhat star like in appearance however much brighter and larger with a constantly shifting shape. Meanwhile the captains of Olympic Airways flights 730 to Kos and 700 to Rhodes reported the same thing. The sighting was then confirmed by Athens Airport control tower and the Greek Air Force Piranha Mountain Radar confirmed that they too were monitoring an object travelling at incredible speed. It was unusual shaped and very bright object. Two F-16's were sent up too intercept the UFO, but the object shot off at incredible speed but the jets failed to identify anything. The ensuing deliberate cover-up of this incident by the Greek authorities is being treated as fact by that country's media. The object was witnessed simultaneously by three pilots with decades of flying experience between them, staff at multiple radar and ground control stations and the Greek Air Force.
What is more surprising is Western media's complete non-coverage of this incident and the continuing and sometimes absurd attempts by governments to deny the obvious as far as UFOs are concerned. Thanks to UFO Week http://ufoweek.com
Ballito -- I read on your site about the erratic moving lights in Canada, sighted on 15 November. My boyfriend and I saw similar lights in Ballito, on the southeast Coast of South Africa New Years Eve at 12:26 AM,. At first we thought they were fireworks, but decided the lights were moving too slow for fireworks. The small lights moved out from behind the building in very slow movements after each other. The photo is very interesting and shows the lights nice and clear.
Note: The second photo is not shown as it is quite blurry. This is probably due to camera movement. The source of the lights is probably not fireworks, but the lights could be Chinese lanterns. However, this identification is speculative. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com
Somerset -- Sarah Knapton reports from the UK Telegraph: Caravaners were left baffled when the mysterious cylinder hovered over a busy campsite. They claimed the unidentified black metal object stands out clearly against the blue sky, where it can be seen darting up and down for more than ten minutes. Local police reported no unusual activity, but witnesses were convinced they had seen an extra-terrestrial spectacle. It took place on a sunny afternoon last July when tourists spotted the object. One grabbed his video camera and managed to capture its strange, erratic movements. The video was shot at the height of the tourist season and stopped hundreds of holidaymakers in their tracks.
But it only emerged yesterday after it was sent anonymously to a local news website. UFO expert Malcolm Robinson who runs Strange Phenomena Investigations said the object was "totally consistent" with other sightings. ”While UFOs are commonly thought to be spherical in shape, we receive dozens of calls from people who have spotted similar cylinder-shaped objects. Last June, local Coastguards were called out to search Somerset's coastline after sightings of a mystery parachute and canister, which were never found. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/4591148/UFO-filmed-above-Somerset-coastline-by-holidaymakers.html
OXFORD – I am 60 years old with very good distant eye sight. I first saw an object 35 years ago above hills near a village called Horsepath near Oxford, I looked out of my bedroom window to see a dark object in a uniform gray sky. From that point on, I looked to the sky more often and about two months later I saw two orange orbs of light in the same area. Five years later when I saw an object pass from right to left between trees.
Then I saw and object over South London and this time I had a good camera with an 18x telephoto lens, also on camcorder. I have an interest in aircraft and have visited air shows for many years and I do not think that I can be fooled by conventional craft, and I doubt they are secret aircraft, since they don't stay secret for long.
I need your help. It is very time consuming and expensive to research and prepare the files. Only a few people who have enjoyed the files for almost ten years or less have chosen to provide a donation.
I would greatly appreciate your contributions to help sustain my production, reporting and research efforts. I also want to thank everyone who has sent their UFO sightings, without your help there would be no files. I want to thank the couple of people who have sent $25.00 and more for donations to Filer's Files for 2008. When you send in a subscription please include your latest E-mail address.
