Dedicated to 5 year old Georgie Filer V whose motto was "Be Happy" and Eddie Pedrick my grandsons who drowned.
In Special Reports, this week's files cover: Shuttle Endeavour Mission STS-088 Images UFOs, Stephen Hawking on Time Travel, Mars Cave Opening, Mars had oceans, just like Earth.
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings over California, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Washington. Sightings of UFOs occurred in Brazil, Canada, Ireland, Italy, Peru, Turkey, England and Scotland in 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. Under Project Blue Book, the US Air Force investigated UFOs for more than twenty years; and we continue this research. I believe the God of the universe has spread life throughout the cosmos and UFO's are visiting us in ever-increasing numbers.
A series of cigars or cylinder shaped UFOs are being observed over much of the US.
"In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us realize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask you, IS NOT AN ALIEN FORCE ALREADY AMONG US?" -- President Ronald Reagan., Remarks made to the 42nd General Assembly of the United Nations., Sept. 21, 1987
The Space Shuttle Endeavour Mission STS-088·during December 1998, imaged several unidentified flying objects in space. Five NASA astronauts and a Russian cosmonaut flew on the STS-88 mission. Sergei K. Krikalev, a mission specialist represented the Russian Space Agency (RSA). Astronaut Robert D. Cabana was mission commander; Frederick W. Sturckow, pilot; and James H. Newman, mission specialist. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iL8SldhdkHs&feature=related
The Space Shuttle Endeavour mission was the First International Space Station Flight. Endeavour was l aunched December 4, 1998, landing December 15, 1998, at 10:53 PM.
Tom M. writes, "I normally don't write e-mails, but this is so important I wanted to inform of you something amazing. I was killing sometime today so I thought I would watch some YouTube videos. I found this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iL8SldhdkHs&feature=related titled "UFOs in NASA imagery”. It shows six official astronaut caught UFO images of a hardware vehicle of some kind. I've been following NASA since Sputnik, and this is NOT junk! It is hardware flying real close to the shuttle. It changes angles throughout the images. The last image, #70, even clearly shows it with three running lights on one side and a huge flash on the other end, (engines)?
I am including the links to NASA's server that has all these images except for the highest of highest versions, of course. Every time you click on the link to the highest image it comes back with an error saying; "The image cannot be displayed because it has errors”, yeah right! Here are the server links:

The Daily Telegraph reports, "A vast Earth-like ocean covered a third of the surface of Mars 3.5 billion years ago, new research suggests. Scientists believe it stretched around the planet's northern hemisphere and held 10 times more water than all the Earth's oceans combined.
The water may have provided a cradle for the emergence of extraterrestrial life, researchers claim.
In new research published in the journal Nature Geoscience, scientists from the University of Colorado identified 52 delta regions on Mars fed by numerous river-like systems. All lay at about the same height, suggesting that they marked the shoreline edge of a huge river-fed ocean, which they believe covered a third of the planet.
"Our findings lend credence to the hypothesis that an ocean formed on early Mars as part of a global and active hydrosphere," said the researchers, led by Dr Gaetano Di Achille and Professor Brian Hynek.
BENTON -- I went outside to smoke and my brother came with me to keep me company on June 22, 2010, at 12:36 AM. As soon as we stepped outside, before I could light my cigarette, a UFO flew past us making this eerie factory like sound that I've never heard any plane or other aircraft make before. That is what initially drew my attention. We looked up to see this cylinder shaped UFO flying right above our tree line, closer to the ground than anything has ever flown above our house. We live right in the middle of town, so aircraft stay high up. It had three green flashing lights and two red flashing lights on the underside. It had no wings, and flew at a speed faster than anything I've ever seen fly before. As soon as my brother and I witnessed it, the UFO was out of our sight. (Cylinder is a depiction of sighting).Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center (MP3)
Note: The object must have been flying low for the witness to determine details of color and shape at night. William Puckett, Director http://www.ufosnw.com
VILLA PARK -- My friend and I saw a yellow triangle with three lights traveling away from us. Twenty minutes later, we saw stars moving fast across the sky in all different directions five of them in fifteen min.
Beech Grove -- I was sitting on my patio, when I saw a bright orange light on June 10, 2010, at 10:07 pm. At first, I thought it was the headlights of a plane-slowing coming towards my position, getting bigger. I was waiting for it to go past me to hear the engine noise and to see what exactly it was. I got my camera and took several pictures. Once it flew over me, I was able to see a bright orange ball fly past silently. This was no apparent aircraft; and I felt scared. The orange ball continued to fly straight then made an angular direction change and disappeared as it ascended up. The zoomed in picture is from the May 22, 2009.
Thanks to MUFON CMS
Olathe -- We were standing on our deck on June 16, 2010, taking pictures of the western sky, and did not notice the object until we looked at the pictures. Two weeks before this around 1 PM, I saw two silver objects darting above the house moving up, down and darting back and forth for three minutes before they disappeared. A vertical cigar shaped object is in the middle of the picture.

ST. LOUIS -- I was driving east on Interstate 70 on June 21, 2010, at 2:40 PM, when a cigar in the northeast sky caught my eye and its altitude seemed low. Its color blended in with the background clouds. It was flying level and straight during the entire sighting. It was definitely on the Illinois side of the Mississippi River below the intermittent cloud cover. I watched it cross about 120 degrees of the SSW horizon in about 110 seconds until it faded into the clouds behind the St. Louis skyline. That is a speed of about 1 degree of sky covered per second so I rolled down my windows while trying to keep the object in view. It stood out due to its high speed, altitude, and heading. All the airports in the area are NW/SE runways and flyovers are much higher. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Ship Island -- My wife and I were on a picnic taking scenic pictures from under a covered decking on June 26, 2010. Two weeks later, I noticed something in the picture. When I zoomed in, I could see a triangle shaped object and a circular object practically touching each other above a very green pointy bush. I was using a Fujitsu digital Camera. I believe the settings were at 5 megapixels and I was slightly zoomed in when taking the picture.
I think it is fantastic that an innocent scenic picture turned out a possible UFO! Thanks to MUFON CMS
OMAHA -- I walked outside to look for my keys on June 28, 2010, at 3:06 PM, and glanced up and noticed an orangey-yellow glowing object in the sky almost directly above me. It was cigar or cylinder shaped and flew without any sound. Its flight was very smooth; as if it were set on a particular course and it seemed to also increase in elevation as it headed toward the horizon. It flew from west to east and did not have any blinking lights, wings, or trail, and it made no noise what so ever. I am not near any traffic, so that noise could not have been drowned out. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Fair Lawn -- I pulled my car into the driveway on June 23, 2010, at 10:53 PM, and noticed a ball of light appear over the tree line approaching from the west. I assumed it was the headlight on an airliner, but as it inched closer there no telltale FAA blue and red flashing lights. The light was shining like a star. This object had no discernible audible sound of its own, nor did it seem to have any actual wings, or any other shape. It was just a bright shining light. As it flew overhead, a plane flew underneath apparently landing at Newark. The object was flying at several thousand feet traveling on a straight path into the clouds. Its speed was a few hundred miles per hour. I have lived here my entire life, and know that what I saw was not any aircraft I have ever seen. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Trenton -- On June 21, 2010, I encountered three triangular shaped unidentified objects moving at a high rate of speed. They had three green pulsating lights that arranged into a triangle. We encountered three objects within thirty minutes on a cloudy night with temperature around 77 degrees. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center.
MARINE PARK -- Inside my car heading NNW on Flatbush Avenue towards Kings Plaza at 10 AM, on June 17, 2010, I saw a 200 foot long ribbon of shimmering gold, silver, purple appeared for two seconds then vanished. I noticed it because it was the cloud mass in my line of sight. I immediately thought it was a UFO because nothing shimmers like that then vanishes instantly. I felt calm and delighted that I got to see it, yet disappointed that it vanished so soon. Thanks to MUFON CMS
During a Memorial Day picnic, on May 30, 2010, I was taking photos of kids playing in the yard at dusk. A photo of children taken at 9:09 PM shows a round object above the trees. When downloaded I zoomed in on the image and you can see the size and brightness of the object. Other photos show an aircraft that is easily recognized.
Thanks to MUFON CMS
FRANKLIN -- I am an amateur photographer for a local news station taking photos of a beautiful sunset on June 28, 2010. I caught through my lens an airline flying through the clouds leaving a vapor trail behind. It was only after I uploaded it from my camera to my PC and then to the news website that I realized there was something to the left and above of the plane.

Marilyn Carlson writes, "I read the brief article on the Ocean Shores video of a flashing type of light. My husband Richard and I sky watch using night vision equipment. We also saw the flashing light on several occasions” It flashes as bright as a camera flash about every nine seconds. It moves across the sky so slowly that we do not think it is an Iridium satellite. It does not seem to be geosynchronous either as it does move slowly across the sky. It appears to be out of the Earth's atmosphere. We simply call it the "Flasher". We do have it on video if anyone is interested. I would like to contact Paul, the person who turned in the report and see if he wanted to see our video too. Thanks, Marilyn Carlson Oklahoma Mufon State Director
BUTLER -- Around 11 PM, on June 16, 2010, I was taking out the trash and I spotted four jet fighters over ten minutes. I continually watched the sky, and eventually saw a blinding white spherical light appear in front of me. It was blindingly white but did not hurt to see, and it appeared to travel spurts of energy, though continuous, it had more energy at certain times. The light behind it almost had many clouds of light jetted from it in the opposite direction of its motion.
Two more jet fighters flew over my head before my vision was obscured by clouds, and this I feel was not have been coincidence. The real question remains of why 5-6 Jet Fighters were flying over a small town. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center with the details of your sighting. Thanks to Sightings.com
MILSAP -- On June 22, 2010, at 9:35 PM, just like the last time I witnessed strange lights, I was traveling home from Granbur with my two sons. As we reached the top of a hill on FM56, I noticed a very bright, slow moving, and circular/round object in the northern sky. This is a dangerous road, so I drove five minutes to a Star Hollow Road overlook to see the object illuminating. After a few minutes, the bright light reappeared and was moving west toward the Mineral Wells area. My two sons were so intrigued with the experience we all were sharing and even the 10 year old said to me, "That's not normal." I agreed and decided I had better grab some pictures. Within seconds, it vanished and I noticed one, maybe two fighter jets traveling toward the lights. Thanks to MUFON CMS
SALT LAKE CITY -- On June 26, 2010, I got some video of another sighting except this one was not superb like the first one, though I am sure I captured another UFO. This one is quite different as it appeared as a typical UFO that you see on YouTube. The UFO sways back and forth and. I want everyone to know that they exist.
Thanks to MUFON CMS
RICHMOND -- I noticed a white star-like object from my front yard above the southeastern horizon on June 18, 2010. It appeared white and was brighter than Venus. The motion was uniform and towards the east. I ran inside to get my camera and found the object fainter to the eye. I took six photos by pointing the camera in the general direction of the object. It appeared to brighten again as it approached the trees. I observed it for three minutes and found the variation in brightness interesting.
Thanks to MUFON CMS
Lastro -- I am 44 years old and my work involves historical research. I was working in the city of Lastro, at around noon and I took pictures of some of the city's old buildings with the camera facing north on December, 19, 2007. I took three photos and did not see anything abnormal, nor did the people with me. When I uploaded the images to my computer, I then noticed the light in the first picture. I used was a MEPGMOVIE VX DSC-P32 camera and took over 600 photos with the same camera, but only this photo had a strange light. What do you feel was captured on the photograph.

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- Shane writes, "My son Jacob and I were going on a bike ride by the river on June 6, 2010, around 9 PM, and saw this very distinct dark object in the sky over the church." It was over a kilometer away and a few hundred feet high. At first, it was slightly pulsating in one spot. At arm's length, it was a size larger than an aspirin but smaller than a dime. I remembered I had my camera so I took two pictures that I zoomed in at 14 times. We decided to go to the fire hall to get a better picture, but by then it was gone. Thanks to MUFON CMS
ONTARIO -- on June 24, 2010, my partner and I were hanging out at the beach at Lake Erie, were enjoying watching the stars through binoculars, and noticed an object hovering above one of the brightest stars - and flashing. I pulled out the binoculars to see that it was a black triangle with three lights - one on each corner. I believe the lights were red, green, and white. It just hovered for more than a minute and then disappeared. Thanks to MUFON CMS
GILLAM, MANITOBA - This photo was taken in August 13, 2005, at Kettle Dam at 4:46 PM. The object in the photo is not the sun, moon, Venus. It shows up in adjacent photos for 22 seconds. The camera had 7x zoom. The second picture shown above with dog was a zoom. I don't think it would be bug. It might be a plane, but I didn't see anything or hear one.
Note: The bright spot in the photo is not a planet or star. Venus is the only planet that can be visible during daylight, but skies were cloudy so the light is not a celestial object. Enlargement does not reveal any detail so the light could be many different things (bird, insect, etc). Of course it could be a UFO? Like many photos the witness did not see anything and only discovered the light when viewing his photos. The photo was taken with a Canon PowerShot A40 digital camera. This camera has a maximum resolution of 2 megapixels.

St Helens Bay, Rosslare, Co. -- I was away with the wife and kids on a few days break, and I was standing on the 18th tee of the Golf Course and saw what looked like a low flying plane out past the lighthouse that flew towards me. I thought a small aeroplane was in trouble and was coming in to land or make a drug drop so I decided to hide. At that point, the light was only about 30 yards from me and was no aeroplane. It was a bright white light, similar to that of a 100-watt light bulb and moved ever so slightly in the wind. I walked down the fairway and the bright light followed me towards the clubhouse. It then followed me back up the 18th to the tee box.
I had lost all fear of it and continued to walk away and as I walked behind a small hill, the light elevated itself in order to see me. I then decided to go back to the house and walk through a lane with trees both sides. Once I emerged from the lane the light was there waiting for me 30 yards away. It followed me the remaining half kilometer home and remained there with me. I spoke to it then, "I and asked it if it was okay to go home, and I told it to go back to the sea.” It went away from me but before it was out of sight it came back. I then said 'I am going home' and asked for approval'. For the first, time the light moved erratically up and down. At that point, I walked in the front door of the house, immediately checked family, but all was okay. Thanks to MUFON CMS
FOGGIA -- I was using my computer on June 10, 2010, and looked out the window to see spheres floating in the sky. I discovered the shapes were too circular to be birds. The objects were flying east just over my head and went into a cloud and disappeared. I took some photos after few seconds. Two minutes later two planes passed in the sky from north to south and another one from south to north. This one disappeared in the cloud and never come out as well.
Thanks to MUFON CMS
LIMA -- On June 24, 2010, a UFO was photographed during a commercial flight in broad daylight on June 18, 2010, during a TACA flight headed from Lima to Piura. The object is visible along with the aircraft's wing around 3 PM. One of the TACA passengers a renowned attorney saw the object and alerted other travelers, and was able to ascertain that they were seeing the same thing. He then took these photos, which were turned over to Con Nuestro Perú.

Itikent Urla -- I was dining with my friends on their terrace on June 25, 2010, and noticed a deep blue light in the sky that we thought it might be from an airplane. Then my five friends and I saw there was a fleet of a hundred strange blue lights, some were bright, some not so bright traveling over Itokent Urla. They were moving unhurriedly but quite fast for an object of such altitude. They had the buoyancy of balloons but most had very sharp shining blue lights. They traveled southbound and disappeared unhurriedly. The blue light parade lasted about five minutes before it disappeared. Thanks to MUFON CMS
WHITESHEET HILL -- A stunning formation appears in a beautiful part of Western England. Whitesheet Hill is steeped in history. With ancient sites going as far back as Neolithic times.
Six key circles surround a seventh circle in the middle. Eighteen circles provide an outer ring. I dare not try to count the over one hundred smaller circles that pepper this wonderful formation.
There is a magical feel to this formation, which is set in this magnificent setting connecting the ancient past to this modern day phenomenon.

Kettering -- It was a very nice sunny day on June 22, 1010, shortly after 6 PM, as I was driving I saw in the distance a round circle that disappeared like some kind of reflection. It was a kilometer above ground and three miles away. I kept driving and I saw this happened twice again, the reflection circled almost as if it was a circle shape. In addition, the reflection diameter was huge. The object itself was not visible and I could see the sky right through it. The reflection was white, and the reflection was a rectangle shape circling the object, only the sun reflection gave it away. The reflection rectangle size was about the same as a 747 wing. The object was colorless and invisible. I think this is a very cunning technology, whatever it is. Thanks to MUFON CMS
On June 21, 2010, my partner and I decided to walk home from his mother's house at 1AM, with our children in the pram fast asleep and noticed the brightest star like the Bethlehem star moving like an airplane. It was bigger than all the other stars in the sky and had the shape of a cross. There was no aircraft navigation lights and it flew smoothly across the sky for about 10 minutes, in a straight line and it was sooo bright white. A week later, I am terrified of aliens.
Thanks to MUFON CMS
On June 26, 2010, I took many the photographs of a UFO in front of my house. I observed for 20 minutes, and got my camera, a Sony DSC-H7 with 15x zoom and digital zoom resulting in 76x total zoom. The object is white, and makes a random pulse, but in the photos, the color is brilliant gray. Thanks to MUFON CMS
BURNSIDE, BUNREE, ONICH -- Highland News reports, "Chris Bird, along with his partner Anne were outside taking time-lapsed photographs with a tripod-mounted camera when they witnessed four reddish lights in the evening sky on June 17, 2010.” These lights were unlike anything they have seen. "There were four of them and they all came up at separate times.
"One came up, followed by another and then two came up following a completely different course. They were reddish glowing lights and they seemed to gently rise and kept going and going until they disappeared into the high cloud.”
Mr. Bird did manage to capture the lights in his photograph, which due to the time-lapse settings came out as orange squiggles, floating in the evening sky. Most importantly is the fact that there have been numerous sightings of strange lights in the sky reported in the area in these last few weeks.
Javier Ortega reports, "In recent weeks there have been numerous reports of mysterious unidentified flying objects in the sky at various locations around Inverness, Easter Ross and Fort William, and one of the latest is backed by amazing unexplained photos”.
Another witness of strange aerial goings-on was Alastair MacPhee, of Bruce Place, Fort William, whose son is an Apache helicopter pilot in the RAF. He spotted an unexplained light the same weekend. "When I first saw it, it was about 10.50 pm and was coming from the north,” he said. "It came straight over from the north and stopped round about Caol. Then it went on in all different directions, north, east, south, west, spinning about.
"One light was shining and disappeared a couple of times and then came back on. At first it was just like a pinhole of light and when it came back on it was like a big headlight going on.”
And, he asked, "How could it fly in different directions if it was a Chinese Lantern? They do not have a headlight. And who switched it on? It is a mystery to me and I am very, very curious.”
The next day Karl King, who works at RAF Lossiemouth, and his wife Heather, reported UFO sightings in the direction of Inverness.
Keen planespotter and pilot Bill Renny, from Anderson Street in Inverness, saw another inexplicable object over the Kessock Bridge on the evening of Thursday, May 20, 2010.
