In Special Reports, this week's files cover Evidence for Life on Saturn's Moon Titan, NASA Shuttle Footage, Detroit News about UFOs in 1947, Oregon Disc Investigation, South Africa Metropolis 160,000 Years Old, 30 Billion Earths, Higher Solar Activity Expected, and Blimp can be mistaken for Cylinder UFOs.
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings over Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Kentucky, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Texas. Sightings of UFOs occurred in Australia, Canada, China, Denmark, India, Poland, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.
The purpose of these files is to report the UFO eyewitness and photo/video evidence that occurs on a daily basis around the world and in space. These Files assume that extraterrestrial intelligent life not only exists, but my hypothesis is that the over a thousand UFOs reported each month represent technologically advanced spacecraft conducting surveillance of Earth. I personally became interested in UFOs when London Control ordered me to intercept one over England while flying for the US Air Force. I believe the God of the universe has spread life throughout the cosmos and UFO's are visiting us in ever-increasing numbers.
Titan is a monster, the second biggest moon in the solar system at 3200 miles in diameter; bigger than Mercury and Pluto. It has a thick atmosphere, made up of nitrogen, methane, lakes probably of liquid methane.
Five years ago, Chris McKay and other scientists pointed out that if methane-based life existed on Titan, it might be detectable through a surface depletion of ethane, hydrogen, and acetylene. New observations show that this is the case; there are lower amounts of these substances than the chemistry of Titan would indicate.
As McKay points out, "This is a still a long way from ‘evidence of life'. However, it is extremely interesting." There may be non-biological explanations, and we should not conclude biology is involved until we get a lot more evidence. Recently images indicated lakes exist on Titan. Former NASA scientist Dr. Norman Bergrun in his book "Ringmakers of Saturn" that contains a detailed study of NASA Voyager 1 and 2 photographs of the rings of Saturn claims the rings are being formed by emissions emerging from gigantic electromagnetic vehicles (EMV's) possibly being controlled by a form of intelligence.

VOLGA -- In 922, the Caliph of Baghdad dispatched Ibn Fadlan with his embassy to King Blatavar of the Bulgars of the Middle Volga. The first night they spent in the palace of the King. Arab chronicler Ibn Fadlan witnessed a very strange celestial phenomenon. Just before sunset, the horizon became bright red, and from somewhere above came a low rumble. Ibn Fadlan raised his eyes to the sky and saw a red fiery-reddish cloud moving above him. At the time, another cloud appeared above them. The Arabs were frightened and kneeled in prayer. The locals however, were amazed by the guest's behavior, laughed, and later explained the battles in the sky take place every night.
Ibn Fadlan observed one cloud joined itself with another, and later the clouds came apart again, and disappeared at night fell. The chronicler describes constantly moving shapes inside the clouds, human and animal looking. He saw weapons in the arms of the beings within the clouds. The shapes were quite clear one moment, and then would disappear the next. The battle he observed consisted of another formation (black) attacking the other formation. The battle lasted for a long time and at one point, the formations merged, and then separated once more. He could observe the "phenomenon” quite clearly that finally disappeared. He emphasized the loud noises, sounds and the visibility of the occurrence. The Bulgars explained the "riders in the sky” as Jinni in Moslem legends, a supernatural being who can take human or animal form and influence human affairs, the "faithful” ones fighting the "unfaithful”. Page 4, excellent book by Philip Mantle and Paul Stonehill, "UFO Case Files of Russia.”
The Detroit News on July 07, 1947, reports that Fortean Society member Tom Farnsworth states, "Flying saucers reportedly racing through the United States skies are nothing to get up in the air about; people have been seeing things in the sky for years." The Fortean Society is a club for experts on the unusual things that people have seen through the centuries. The club was founded in honor of Charles Fort, a man who devoted his life to collecting four volumes on odd happenings.
Farnsworth said, "The Rev. W. Read, an amateur astronomer, spotted a "host of self-luminous bodies" with his telescope in England on September 4, 1851. In 1863, Henry Walden, a Swiss, informed an astronomer at an observatory at Zurich, Switzerland, that he had been seeing many small, shining bodies whooshing through the skies. The astronomer wrote back that he had been seeing the same things--and so had Stargazer Sig Capocci at a Naples, Italy, observatory.” Thanks to Chris Aubeck and the Detroit News - Ken Pfeifer MUFON New Jersey www.ufoweek.com
NASA warns of much higher levels of solar activity over the next few years. The sun is waking up from a deep slumber, and in the next few years, we expect to see much higher levels of solar activity. At the same time, our technological society has developed an unprecedented sensitivity to solar storms. Intense solar storms can knock out power grids, GPS navigation, air travel, financial services and emergency radio communications. A century-class solar storm, the Academy warned, could cause twenty times more economic damage than Hurricane Katrina.
Much of the damage can be mitigated if managers know a storm is coming. Putting satellites in 'safe mode' and disconnecting transformers can protect these assets from damaging electrical surges. Preventative action, however, requires accurate forecasting -- a job that has been assigned to NOAA. Thanks to NASA http://www.nswp.gov/swef/swef_2010.html
Costing $8 million, the Bullet 580 is the world's largest blimp, measuring 71 meters long, and 19 meters in diameter. Able to be flown remotely or with a crew, you could rent it—for over $300,000 a month.
It takes six hours to inflate it with helium at Alabama's Garret Coliseum. Built from Kevlar material which is ten times stronger than steel, the blimp can hold up to 2,000 lbs of weight and travel 6,096m (20,000 feet) high, traveling at 35mph with a top speed of 80mph. Its first test flights will only occur this summer.

Rogers -- About 6 PM, on June 6, 2010, I heard a massive airliner leave our small airport. I looked up to see an airbus with a tan front end and a weird tail on it. This huge plane was coming out of our municipal airport, which is only used for small aircraft.
I looked up to see a cigar shaped UFO floating at 1,500 feet at 65 mph following the airbus. I went to get my camera but the door was locked. My wife and granddaughter came out and I pointed at the craft and said, "Look no wing and no sound!” The UFO was about 65 feet long, 10 feet high and 15 feet wide. It was metallic gray, glistened as it drifted upward. From the side appearance, it looked like a disc. I watched as the airbus made a slight left turn into the clouds and the UFO angled in that direction showing an octagon shaped rear end and then vanished. We live In Rogers, which is a very small town near the home of Wal-Mart. The UFO maybe was aiding the airbus out of the small airport. My wife said, "She had seen the object earlier about 8 to 9 am as I was driving to work.” The Global Express XRS (a fifty million dollar plane) fit the description and color markings of the plane that took off.
Note: The witness has described something that could be a danger to air traffic." He mentions other sightings in this report and subsequent communications. (This doesn't discount this sighting, but it indicates that the witness could be prone to speculation.) The witness did find departure schedules for the airport. This is useful information and will be used to investigate this report. Radar data has been received from the FAA and analyzed.
Radar Analysis: The Rogers radar does not show any aircraft going into or out of the Rogers Airport. The area could be in a "radar hole" and be too far from any radar antenna that will show low flying aircraft. Only one possible target is unknown and is 5 miles west of the airport. Only one return was painted which indicates that the return is likely a "radar angel" and not a real object. Also, the aircraft present near the "radar angel" flew through the area about 30 minutes before the radar angel was detected. (The radar map shows all returns from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM CDT.)
Radar Analysis Update: - June 4, 2010: The FAA has notified me that more radar data will be sent. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com
SATAN'S BUTTE -- I live with my wife on the Navajo Reservation but I am not a Navajo. For many years, I have heard many stories about UFO's and snakes at Satan's Butte. A week ago, I was outside at 9:46 PM, and looked toward Satan's Butte and saw a spaceship hovering three miles away. I grabbed a camera and binoculars but could not get a clear picture. I watched the UFO cylindrical sphere with red blinking lights descend into the butte. Two days later, I saw it again and yelled to my unbelieving wife but by the time she got outside it had already descended.
Last Friday, I bought a "good" camera and on June 7, 2010, at 10:46 PM, we both witnessed the UFO and I took pictures.

PALM SPRINGS -- The witness is a flight attendant and has been employed for the same airline for 29 years. She related an incident that occurred on a flight from Palm Springs to Portland in the late 1980s, with a stop in San Francisco. Three unusual passengers boarded in Palm Springs. A man estimated to be about 30 had very piercing eyes and an unusual forehead, a boy about 8 years old, and a middle-aged man. The three boarded without any carryon luggage and were dressed in "Sears Roebuck" work clothing.
After the flight took off the 30 year old, who sat in seat 23D asked the flight attendant the mass and velocity of the aircraft. When ordering drinks and food the man did not seem to understand names of food and drinks and only named preferences after the attendant listed what was available. The other two in the party never spoke. The man in 23D would always repeat everything said.
Later in the flight, the man became conversant with another passenger seated ahead of him. The flight attendant sat by someone who she knew and did not like just to hear the conversation. She stated that the man asked very unusual questions and repeated everything I said to him to the other two passengers. Later in the flight, the man asked if a restroom was available. The flight attendant pointed it out to him. When he started to return to his seat the flight attendant approached him and asked him his age. He said, "I am light years old.” Like this was no joke. He told her he had been to other planets.
Once the flight ended at Portland, the flight attendant deplaned along with the passengers. In concourse, the man approached her and asked, "Why did you sit by someone that you hated? The flight attendant felt this man could read her mind.
The witness concluded that she had never before or since the above incident ever experienced anything like this. Apparently, other crew members felt the same.
Note: I talked to the witness for over an hour and know she is a flight attendant. She saw the three enter a darkened limousine. She obviously wanted no publicity and asked for no compensation. She also related that she had been married to an Air Force Serviceman who was involved in top-secret projects. She had thought that he had stints of duty at Area 51. He was gone to air bases in Nevada for long periods during their marriage. William Puckett, Director http://www.ufosnw.com
San Francisco -- We received a link to the NBC Today Show video from a viewer. The video was captured, clipped, and slowed to around three frames/second on May 11, 2010. I watched this newscast the day it aired. Mr. Holt was standing in San Francisco on The Embarcadero near the Bay Bridge. If you go to Google Maps and search for "188 The Embarcadero, you will see approximately where Lester Holt was standing. He was in San Francisco after having been the commencement speaker for the graduation ceremony at UC Merced. I have a high definition TV and could clearly see that it was an airplane passing behind Lester Holt.
Note: With the comments received on May 20, 2010, it is quite likely that the object in the video was an airplane. The commenter saw the airing on a HD TV. The above video was extracted in a much lower resolution from a web site. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com
39.7188 N 104.799W -- The first time I noticed the lights was on March 29, 2010. My wife our three kids and I were stargazing when I noticed a very bright star. We watched it through the telescope and it did not move but flashed bright, and then dimed. Sometimes it appeared to move. My wife takes pictures each time we see them, to show what we are seeing and record the dates. We saw them again on April 12 and April 27.
Then on May 5, 2010, we decided to drive in the direction were seeing them. I took the video camera and zoomed in as much as possible and my wife took pictures of the surrounding lights. We watched the video and noticed that within the ball of light there seemed to be some sort of cylinder structure. We were amazed at what we saw. While searching the internet for other similar sightings, we came across MUFON, and Clifford Clift. I met with him and gave him a copy of my video. We saw the lights again two more times. Then on May 21, we had some friends over and they appeared again. Our friends are as amazed as we are.
Our friend videoed some of the objects with my video camera. Then on May 31, 2010, we saw them again. After reviewing the video, I noticed that the second dim light flew in and stopped at the top right of the first and have the same cylinder structure. On June 2, 2010, we saw them again. Thanks to MUFON CMS
West Palm Beach -- Cigar shaped glowing amber object was seen in night sky - on May 27, 2010 at 11:15 PM. I saw an oval almost cigar shaped amber craft traveling from the northwest. It started trailing a long red fire trail behind it. I knew it was not a plane by its shape and it released fire. I saw a plane further north that was on a collision course with the UFO. It looked like they were going to collide, but they did not. The object kept moving southeast as fast as a plane. Two other smaller lights joined the larger ufo and flew off together over Palm Beach. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com
Note: a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Rocket carrying a Boeing Gps Satellite was launched from Cape Canaveral, Fl at 11 pm on May 27. The witness quite likely saw this rocket.
My sister-in-law called at 10:17 pm, on June 4, 2010, and said that my son (who was staying the night) had come running in the house saying, "I just saw a UFO land on top a star!" She went outside because he demanded everyone to look, and she saw something odd enough to call and ask us to look. We saw a light much larger than any star that was bright white that emanated a glow around it and was moving across the sky WNW slowly. My husband and our friend and I viewed it until it moved away and was gone. I have never seen anything like it. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Richland -- On the evening of June 5, 2010, our paranormal group decided to do an investigation in a Pulaski County cemetery. It was just the group leader, his wife, and I that night. We were having the usual investigation and were at first glance getting many orbs. My friend was using a 10-megapixel camera that had an infrared attachment.
We finished our investigation at a second cemetery where we heard a constant humming noise and went to home to check our pictures. Hanging in the sky among the trees in the first cemetery was not anything I had ever seen before. It was invisible to us but we were only 25 feet from the object that was hovering about in the treetops. Also noticed in other photographs are humanoid looking faces with two black stripes painted upon their cheeks. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Asbury Park -- On June 7, 2010, I was on the boardwalk taking photos and did not notice anything out of the ordinary. When I got home and downloaded the photos, I noticed the objects that I thought were airplanes until I enhanced the photo. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Angel Fire -- Aliens exist, and they've landed in here before, so says a group of concerned citizens from Angel Fire known as the Alliance Studying Paranormal Experiences. They say after a vigorous investigation, an alien landing is the only explanation for the bizarre markings found in a pasture in Moreno Valley, outside of town. Not only has the Alliance studied the pasture owned by Judy Piper, but they've also had it examined by experts from the MUFON who confirm it is the real deal. Sparsely populated Angel Fire is a "UFO hot spot,” according to Alliance president Janet Sailor. It is kind of a pain when your flying saucer breaks down, though.

Corona -- on May 30, 2010, I was at my house, my daughter was watching TV ..., and I decided to check the sky. I always have my IR filter on to check for spheres. It had little lights on the top and was still in the sky...An airplane is much larger than that thing. Thanks to MUFON CMS
DOLA -- On May 30, 2010, a friend and i were having a garage sale, but nobody was showing up. Therefore, we just started taking pictures. My friend looked across my pond, took a picture, looked at the picture. Then up at the sky. She saw the UFO, and then pointed to show me, but it was gone. We did not know what it was when we first sawed it. We could not hear it and have not seen it since. We were at my house during the sighting and she looked surprised. I was shocked, and we just sat there looking around the sky to see if we saw it. We lost sight of it because my friend looked at me to show me where it was at, I looked up, and it was gone. Thanks to MUFON Thanks to MUFON CMS
Willowick -- We saw two white lights in a vertical formation on May 30, 2010, at 11:45 PM, obviously attached to each other. We observed no flashing or twinkling of any kind. The object seemed to move in a north path across the sky towards Lake Erie. A group of adults and one child ranging in age from early 40s to early 30s watched the object for about two and a half minutes before the object traveled out of our sight range. There was absolutely no sound. Three of the four men that witnessed have military experience, and two were in aviation. William Puckett, Director Http://www.ufosnw.com
Note: Unusual aerial sightings seem to be the norm over Lake Erie. This sighting certainly fits into the "unexplained" category.
I woke up early to and went to get a drink of water and saw the super bright light that at first I thought was the moon. The object lowered to almost ground level then illuminated the area in the woods all around it. The light was right on top of the hill where we live and I noticed a beam of light was shining towards the northwest. The object then suddenly shined a beam of light to the southeast. I woke up my husband but the light had dimmed. He went back to bed half asleep... and that is when it started shining a bright light in two different directions. I woke him up again and he came and looked at it but was so sleepy he just said oh...it's the moon. I watched the light until it disappeared. When this object was illuminating, you could see the trees very well. It was scary. It was a big bright white light. Only one picture showed anything unusual and it shows two red lights in the upper right hand corner. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Newport, We were on a trip down the Oregon coast and stopped at the Yaquina Head lighthouse near Newport, OR. It was a beautiful day, and I was trying out my new Lumix ZS3 high quality digital camera, taking numerous photos, as it was a beautiful, sunny day.
I noticed nothing unusual that day, but when I reviewed the photos at home, one included what appears to be a sizable disc-shaped object in the sky. I can see it is not a bird, and sun is glinting off the surface. Even further, away down the right side of the photo, there appear to be two more off in the distance toward the other shore.
This photo was taken facing north, just east of the lighthouse. I took other photos at the same location, and none of them shows these spots in the sky. Thanks to MUFON CMS
SANDY LAKE -- I was just taking pictures of the view on June 3, 2010. The object is only in this picture and I did not see object when I was taking the photo, only after I got home and looked did I see it. Thanks to MUFON CMS
READING -- Around 1:30 Am, on June 6, 2010, I was feeding my cats outside when I saw a bank of round lights moving quickly. There were vertical lines of light along the side of it with a green line in front. All the other lights were pale red color and I activated my cell phone camera and quickly took one photo before it was behind the trees. I blew up the picture and you can see the round bank of lights illuminating a triangle shaped object. I have never seen anything like this in the sky before. Thanks to MUFON CMS
AUSTIN -- About 1:05 am, on June 3, 2010, a severe thunderstorm was moving in from the northwest and I saw a bluish light through the very bad lightning and watched it wondering what a plane was doing flying directly through the storm.
The storm had to be at least ten miles away and the light I first saw moving was behind it coming towards my direction. It came on very fast and I could see a diamond shaped outline against the approaching storm clouds. It stopped and flew right over my head and I could distinctly see a rectangular shaped craft and see the lines of its construction. The markings looked like something an aircraft might have but I could not quite make out the markings. I could see red squares in each corner and make out the square outline of the craft.
I felt it was bigger than any kind of aircraft I have ever seen. I am sure it was military, because it had a familiar kind of 'feel' to it as it went overhead. Thanks to MUFON CMS
BRISBANE -- I was about to head of for a bike ride when I saw a spiral in the sky at 5.50 am, on 5 June 2010. It was about the size of an orange. It had a bright light at the centre and a spiral but it was not spinning. It travelled across the sky and disappeared over the horizon after two minutes.
We were on Munna Street and you could not miss the object it was so huge.
I have never seen anything like it before.
I didn't even think to video it on my phone. It had a very bright light in the centre and 5/6 clockwise spirals which travelled about 270 degrees around the center and faded off. The spiral travelled from SSW to over our heads to? 90 west and disappeared over the horizon slower than an aircraft. Thanks to MUFON CMS
HALIFAX-DARTMOUTH, NOVA SCOTIA -- The pictures were taken July 2nd or 3rd, 2005, around 5:30 PM, of this fireball and there was no sound.
Note: These are good photos. I don't know what was photographed, but I am inclined to believe that it was space junk. Several photos were taken two minutes apart. That is a long time for a meteor to be visible. William Puckett, Director http://www.ufosnw.com
THETFORD MINES, QUEBEC -- On the top of a hill, we saw two very bright white cylindrical UFOs flying in perfect tandem at an amazing speed. In addition, we are trying to contact them again the 6 June 2010 at 9 PM. http://www.antollma.org/MIntervention/JeromeDauphin.php Thanks to MUFON CMS
CHENGDU -- Mr. Zhang, a citizen of Chengdu, saw a UFO about 8:45 PM, on April 18, 2010, and took its picture. According to Mr. Zhang, the UFO had blinding white lights but did not make any noise. It was suspended in the air for a few minutes, accelerated slowly, and disappeared at 8:51 PM. Thanks to Ken Pfeifer MUFON CMS, Peoples Daily Online and UFO Casebook. www.worldufophotos.org
COPENHAGEN -- I was talking with a few friends sitting on a bench in a local park when my friend pointed out the first object that I also spotted. I thought it was a satellite but it got shinier and brighter as it moved on, and then faded out The second object was probably a shooting star. The three first objects were like a star getting brighter and brighter before fading out.
The fourth time was a shooting star, and the fifth I spotted myself. The fifth, I don't really know what it was, I have never seen anything like it before, and I am 100% sure it was not a plane, as the lights were not flashing as fast as they do on a plane, and it changed directions in such a way no man made airplane / space craft can. The fifth object was flashing every 8-10 seconds and did not move in a straight line, but shifted from place to place every time it made a flash. The flash was bright, white/yellowish. I could see a shadow like square moving around, in different directions. The fifth object made me a little scared and my friends were not sure what to believe. Thanks to MUFON CMS
ROME -- I was on trip with my school on April 17, 2010, visiting Vatican Museums, when I looked out the window and I took a picture of the landscape of Rome. When I returned home I reviewed the pictures taken and noticed this UFO only in photos. Thanks to MUFON CMS
ISTANBUL -- This is the Istanbul Kumgurgaz UFO original footage taken in 2009.
The best UFO footage ever taken. For more UFO videos visit http://www.oddvid.com and http://www.top10ufo.com
UZGOROD -- According to the newspaper, UA Reporter Marsha Demetrio a UFO was seen and filmed in the skies above Rozovke on June 2 at around 5.30`Pm near the town of Uzhgorod in the Carpathian Mountains. A local journalist who was in the area happened to see the UFO and managed to capture footage of the mysterious object.
What attracted the journalist's attention to the silent UFO was the incredible speed that it was travelling. The journalist described the UFO as ‘a fast-flying sliver disc'. Ukraine's UFO society UFODOS declared the object unidentified. . http://www.allnewsweb.com/page1199999377.php
54 N - 02 E -- I was in my back garden having a cigarette on June 6, 2010, and noticed the object in the sky. I had my camera in the conservatory near the back door just steps away and could not get hold of and turn it on and select the 'night settings' quick enough! Took three shots and it went straight up like something on a mission. It hovered around and then sped off vertically.
