In Special Reports, this week's files cover: Great MUFON Conference, Moon Mineral Hints at Watery Lunar Past, Mars Tubes, and Fighter Pilots Ordered To "Shoot Down" UFOs!
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings over Arizona, California, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, and Washington. Sightings of UFOs also occurred in Australia, Canada, Denmark, China, New Zealand, Slovenia, the United Kingdom, Uruguay and Venezuela.
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.
I had a wonderful informative time at the Denver MUFON Conference and was amazed with professional and hard working volunteers with great plans for the future. All the speakers were great with an intelligent and knowledgeable audience of over 400 people. MUFON is moving forward with a new website, new programs, and plans for improvement and growth. Clifford Clift the new International Director is an excellent leader with solid UFO and business experience. The Board of Directors, investigations management and the excellent supporting staff impressed me. These are an amazing group of people willing to work hard and I expect great improvements in the future. I encourage those who are not already members to enroll now. The scientific study of UFOs for the benefit of humanity is our mission and new discoveries are imminent.
A mineral discovered in a volcanic rock from the moon contains elements that may point to the moon's watery past, a new study suggests. Scientists found the mineral apatite in a type of lunar volcanic rock called basalt, which contained the same so-called volatile elements as those found in common igneous rocks on Earth. Apollo 14 astronauts collected the moon rock in 1971.
Volatile elements, which include hydrogen, chlorine and sulfur, are those that most easily escape from a rock when it is heated. The presence of these volatile elements in rocks can provide insight into the crust and atmosphere of a planet or moon. The findings suggest similarities in Earth and moon's geo-chemical history.
"Apatite is a mineral that can incorporate water into its structure, but it can also grow in a water-free environment," Jeremy Boyce, the study's lead researcher at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, Calif., told Space.com, " Apatite that grew in the presence of water will contain water, whereas apatite that grew in a water-free environment will not. Therefore, by comparing the volatile elements in the moon's apatite to those on Earth, which formed in water for sure, scientists determined the lunar mineral also formed in water.
Boyce said. "Water (made of volatile elements hydrogen and oxygen) is the most common volatile species on Earth, and is also essential for life as we know it, so it is often what people refer to when speaking of volatiles."
The research is detailed in the July 22 issue of the journal Nature and suggests that at least some lunar minerals are as rich in volatile elements as their terrestrial counterparts. The prevailing hypothesis is that the moon was formed from a giant impact event, when a Mars-sized object slammed into Earth. The ejected material from this collision then coalesced into what is presently the moon.
The results of the new study found that the moon's water was likely present in the hot magma from the impact as it started to cool and crystallize. There is a hundred times more water than formally believed.
The world's oil and energy resources are rapidly depleting but sitting on the Moon surface is a vast reservoir of He3 estimated at total of 1,100,000 metric tons of He3. About 25 tons of He3 would power the United States for one year at our current rate of energy consumption. It appears the moon has many assets valuable to Earth.

Frank Feschino's book features an in-depth investigation into the mysterious incident involving an F-86 Sabre Jet fighter plane that crashed in South Glastonbury, Connecticut on August 5, 1952, amidst a UFO flap. A Westover AFB jet fell into that town setting it ablaze and wreaking havoc.
In the Chapter "Westover and Washington," of his book Feschino chronicles the very controversial events of this crash from newly released USAF documents and reveals the results of his research and onsite investigations.
The chronological detail of military events in Feschino's book will turn a corner with any disbeliever.
The San Francisco Examiner. July 29 1952, "The Air Force revealed today that jet pilots have been placed on twenty-four-hour nationwide 'alert' against 'flying saucers' with orders to 'shoot them down' if they refuse to land."
The Louisville Courier-Journal. July 30, 1952...
"Maj. Gen. Roger Ramey, deputy Chief of the Air Force Staff for Operations, told the news conference [July 29] that interceptor planes have raced aloft several hundred times as a result of reported sighting of unidentified objects. He said that was just standard procedure."
General Benjamin Chidlaw, Head of Air Defense Command...
Uncontested quote, as told to investigative writer Robert Gardner in February of 1953. "We have stacks of reports about flying saucers. We take them seriously when you consider we have lost many men and planes trying to intercept them."
The Fullerton News-Tribune, CA July 26, 1956...
"The United States Navy will not publicly admit that it believes in flying saucers, but it has officially ordered combat-ready pilots to 'shoot to kill' if saucers are encountered, OCNS [Orange County News Service] has learned. The information was first learned when Navy pilots navigating trans-Pacific routes from the United States to Hawaii were ordered in a briefing session to engage and identify ' any unidentified flying objects.' If the UFOs (saucers) appeared hostile, the briefing officer told the pilots of Los Alamitos Naval Air Station reserve squadron VP 771, they are to be engaged in combat... It was found that the orders are not unusual." Thanks to Frank Feschino's book "Shoot Them Down."
SALT RIVER -- On January 5, 2006, a friend and I were taking a daylong four-wheel drive trip and stopped at an overlook on the Salt River, just below Roosevelt Dam. I looked up in the sky and was amazed to see several white orbs moving in random directions, and at a high rate of speed, in the sky. We watched the orbs and then noticed filaments, also moving in random directions across the sky. The filaments were changing shape as they moved. Both the orbs and filaments would appear and disappear. The filaments were definitely not contrails. They moved rapidly and randomly and changed shapes. As a former commercial pilot with thousands of hours of flight time, I am positive contrails do not look, or act the way the filaments we saw did.
I was in law enforcement and a commercial pilot and I cannot explain what I saw. I estimated that the filaments were approximately 60 feet in length. I believe MUFON is serious about UFO investigations. Thanks to MUFON CMS
BERRY CREEK -- On July 15, 2010, about 11 PM, my cousin camped in the mountains 15 miles from Oroville and saw a large bright red light streak across the sky above us making a thunder-like sound. It settled above a mountain range nearby and began flashing a sequence of lights as if it was spinning. It seemed to have a red light at its core with yellow lights blinking in sequence on the outside. After a couple of minutes, a second identical light pattern emerged from the first one and began erratic flight patterns around the first one, which seemed to stay in the same spot.
After performing maneuvers impossible for an aircraft both craft departed in different directions before we lost sight of them in the darkness. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.ufocenter.com/
HURON -- On July 14, 2010, about 1:30 AM, as I drove home, I waited until there was no traffic so I could swerve a little as I stared out the window looking at the sky. I noticed an upside down triangular object with red pulsating lights going left to right repeatedly. A car had sped past me and I had sped up to 110 mph to catch up with him and the other cars. The drivers around me had taken notice, as I was able to see their faces. They slowed and I saw one pointing as the object began to vanish. A couple of minutes later, there were four aircraft with blinking lights that were floating around where the UFO had been. We were not near an airfield but the initial craft that caught my attention was unlike that I had ever seen. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.ufocenter.com/
MAYO -- I was out in my back yard with my pups when I noticed an orange glow down the road that glowed yellow and changed colors several times. The orb seemed to move from side to side and up and down but never leaving the confined space between the trees. The pups were anxious to get back inside at 10:46 PM. When I stepped back outside the object was gone. Although I did see a red glow behind the foliage of the pine trees and several white specks of flashing light that only lasted for a brief moment, and were gone. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Mountain Home observatory -- On July 20, 2010, three witnesses observed three yellow lights maneuvering around the astronomical observatory located in a rural area at 9 PM. It was a very dramatic event. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.UFOcenter.com/
NORTHLAKE -- On July 23, 2010, I was walking to Walgreens with my wife and my 6-year-old son. As we were walking and passed beside the new Northlake Police Station, I glanced up and saw this strange formation. I said, "What is that?" My wife and son looked up and we saw a group of six spheres like objects in the sky, in a loose formation, but were also kind of spinning around each other. We stopped walking and took note of this group of objects as they were traveling about 60 feet above the treetops. My son was very excited about the sighting and exclaimed they seemed to be illuminated, to which my wife concurred.
They were traveling against the wind and were illuminated by both the sun and the objects themselves. They eventually disappeared behind some trees and houses. I tried to get photos of the objects or video, using my cell phone, so this is a depiction of what we observed on location. Thanks to MUFON CMS
COLUMBUS -- On July 16, 2010, about 10 PM, driving north on County Road 400 near Walesboro, I noticed activity northwest of my location, like a star moving in the clouds. Three miles from Highway 58, I saw a super bright disk shaped object that was a pinkish white to red like white. Then a second similar disk came a couple of seconds later. They were around 7000 feet in altitude moving fast, then they both shot away very fast out of sight. It was very awesome. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.UFOcenter.com/
Baton Rouge -- I was driving my car on July 18, 2010, about 8:55 PM, when I noticed a strange looking object in the sky, so I opened my sunroof to get a better view. The object flew above my head, tilted at a 90-degree angle. It was a block like disk/saucer. It had a kaleidoscope of different colors within each square surrounding the circumference of the craft. The colors where white, blue, yellow, red and green, it blinked off and on.
The lights on the tower behind the disk stopped blinking when the craft was near. I stopped my car in front of an apartment complex, got out, and before I could take a picture, it disappeared. Later, I noticed the lights from the tower were once again operational.

Boone -- On July 17, 2010, my family and I were driving in Des Moines on I 30 and saw a huge black line in the sky and as it faded away an airplane followed. It was a huge straight black line and not a cloud. A week later, my family and I were walking as the sunset when we saw a moving object slows down and start hovering. It is too far away to see the shape of it and is able to maneuver too quickly to be a human made craft. Then it simply fades away. Today, I saw the same thing around 2 30 pm on my way home from work that is a silver object smaller in front, without wings, and it is reflecting the sun's light. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.UFOcenter.com/
PAOLA -- On July 16, 2010, about 7:30 PM, while traveling south on US Highway 169, I witnessed a fluctuation of color and brightness in a cloud. A light started fluctuating inside the cloud wall.
As we approached the south side of Spring Hill, a hole opened in the cloud and a bright light shined through that was a long cigar shaped object. As I continued to watch, I saw two of them. They would go in and out of the cloud as if to use it for cover. Once we got close to Hillsdale, my sister finally was able to catch a view of it. We pulled over at on US Highway 169 near 68 to watch it. We thought there might have been four craft with one being longer than the rest. The cloud was a shelf cloud that traveled directly over the town of Paola. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.ufocenter.com/
ANNAPOLIS -- I observed two yellow lights moving northeast at a rapid rate on July 12, 2010, at 10:15 PM. The lights were in formation, separated by about one fist at arm's length with no blinking lights like an aircraft. I have 5000 hours flying as a military navigator, these lights were 15 times larger than Venus was and I observed them over 55 degrees in my field of view. No, they were not F-16's, but they were smoking fast and silent. ((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone and believe he is an exceptionally capable observer. PD)) Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.ufocenter.com/
MACKINAW CITY -- On July 13, 2010, about 1 AM, I saw a disk shaped, glowing figure slowly climbing higher as it flew left to right. It would stop moving up about every ten minutes and the light would dim. It disappeared after about two hours. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.ufocenter.com/
SISTER LAKES -- On July 19, 2010, about 1 AM, two witnesses saw a V shaped aircraft with a wavy mirage like look surrounding it. The object had no lights lit, and moved quickly. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.ufocenter.com/
DULUTH -- On July 11, 2010, about 8 PM, a large black disk shaped object was seen that moved noiselessly and seamlessly through air. Object did not have any flashing lights, moved behind a tree, and disappeared. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.ufocenter.com/
SULLIVAN -- My grandson took a picture of this object just an hour ago. He went outside with our digital camera to take a picture of the full moon, just about 5 degrees above the horizon, sitting on the tailgate of my pickup. He looked about 20 feet away and saw these lights just sitting there. Thinking it looked neat, he took a picture, the flash went off, and he object disappeared. He says he did not even see it move. I did not see this myself, just the picture on the camera. It appears to be a boomerang shaped object. Thanks to Ken Pfiefer MUFON New Jersey www.worldufophotos.org
Wolf Creek -- On July 9, 2010, at 3:38 PM, I w as outside with binoculars looking at clouds and spotted a hovering saucer. It was round with a light underneath. It just sat there, and I doubted I could see a star in the daytime. With the binoculars with ten-time magnification, I wanted to make sure of what I thought I was seeing. So, I lay on the ground my elbows getting sore and watched for three hours. Then dark rain clouds drifted in and the light was still visible under the clouds. It was so windy that a balloon would have drifted away. It never moved and stayed bright even in daylight. It was a little bigger than a truck and was awesome. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.ufocenter.com/
SICKLERVILLE -- On July 18, 2010, at 10 PM, my girlfriend and I were sitting out back when a very bright light started flashing immensely and swirling a bit. It got brighter and started to divide but still lighting up. It was dark out and I grabbed my phone for some kind of photo proof. I only got some flashes and lifetime memory. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.ufocenter.com/
BRONX -- On July 17, 2010, about 12 AM, my two nephews and I walked up to the roof to watch the amount of Yankee fans that came for the Old Timers Game and spotted UFOs. The first one appeared to us like fire directly above our heads, and it just spun around in a circular motion then just disappeared. The second seemed like a star but it was very high up and moving very rapidly. The third was astonishing flying close to the Supreme Court's roof and moving straight across in a very slow motion. It was an oval egg-shaped object, about the size of a full-sized van and an orange or fire like color creeping across the sky. It flew towards a crime scene with about 20 Police cars. All of a sudden, a Police helicopter flew in circles around the area.
Then we saw a fourth heading towards the same direction but this one appeared to be white. A fifth was coming behind him, this was to the left of us while the other to the right of us. This one startled us because it was very close, and flew toward us at head level then it rose up about 50 feet above our heads as it flew near. It was definitely oval, saucer like, with two blue lights going around in circles on the top center of it. The lights were not bright and it changed shape as two legs came out the backside of it. Then it crumbled like liquid metal, again back to its solid shape, and headed to the same direction as the other four.
Five minutes had past and the sixth appeared behind us this time above the Yankee Stadium heading straight towards us at head level and slowly flew towards the others. Then about two minutes later, five in a V shaped formation headed straight across the sky for ten seconds and just vanished. I am a Superintendent of a residential building across the street from the Bronx Supreme Court and one block away from the Yankee Stadium and we see UFOs regularly. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.ufocenter.com/
CUYAHOGA FALLS -- On the night of July 10, 2010, at 10:45 PM, while spotting the glimmer of satellites as they orbited above, I noticed a ‘V' shaped object in the sky, approaching from the southeast heading straight toward the northwest. It had 8-10 dim orange/red lights. Two other people saw it for 15-20 seconds. We had binoculars, and could easily see that it was a single craft moving silently. I would judge its altitude to be around 3-4 thousand feet. The photo from this casebook link is almost exactly, what we saw, though it was at a higher altitude. Thanks to MUFON Thanks to MUFON CMS http://www.ufocasebook.com/2009/californiatrisightingnov2008.html
PHILADELPHIA -- On July 18, 2010, around 8 PM, while flying over the city looking out the aircraft window behind the right wing I noticed a silver sphere a thousand or so feet below us, traveling the opposite direction. Our altitude was around 15000 feet, as we were descending toward the airport. The sun was beginning to set in the west, which was almost directly to my right, perpendicular to our path south toward the airport. It looked about the size of a Volkswagen Beetle automobile. There were no wings. It traveled in a straight course, without deviation. I watched the object cross my viewing region for only about 5 seconds.
Thanks to MUFON CMS
COAHOMA -- On July 5, 2010, around 9:20 PM, a UFO flew over my house when my Dad, called my Mom and said, "There was something flying around in the sky.” I ran outside to see ten bright lights flying around in a triangle shape. They were flying west across the sky. My feelings turned into excitement as it floated and I tried to take a picture but it would not come out clear. It floated around for about 15 minutes then just disappeared in the clouds. It just turned dark and continued floating to the west. After it was gone, we could see ten dark circular objects going west. Thanks to MUFON CMS
LAKE TAWAKONI -- On July 14, 2010, about 10:30 PM, a friend and I were fishing on my dock and observed a satellite pass overhead. While tracking this satellite we unexpectedly observed a very large burst of bright white light. It illuminated the whole night sky and resembled a tube with a dark center. As we were watching, a large cigar shaped dark object came out of this circle and exited down and out, stopped and made a couple of turns and moved a short distance and come to a stop. The circle of light closed up and went out. It was like watching a movie such as Stargate. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.ufocenter.com/
PROVO -- On July 15, 2010, about 10 PM, I was driving south on I-15 between Provo and the Springville exit and fifty feet above my car, there was an object much bigger than a bird, but smaller than an airplane. It was a saucer, with a half-oval shape. There were two or more bright blue lights and it was glowing slightly. I saw it really close to the freeway (way too close for it to be an airplane), but suddenly I could not see it anymore. I looked in the direction it was flying and I saw something in the very far distance, but I am not sure if it was the same object or not. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.ufocenter.com/ ((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous; provides no contact information. PD))
South Hill -- My daughter and I were outside on July 16, 2010, and an object flew above us heading north. It was a light silver color with the half round bottom looking grayish translucent. When the craft passed over SeaTac airport, it became very bright and looked like a star. Six seconds later, it dimmed again and we could still see its disc outline. My daughter mentioned the uncanny lack of air traffic as this object moved over the airport area. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.UFOcenter.com/
SEATTLE -- I witnessed a UFO on July 23, 2010, above the downtown/metro area, between 9 and 9:30 PM. I have photographic proof of the same.
I live on lower Queen Anne; I initially began photographing from my apartment and then ran over to the parking garage's rooftop. The camera was a point and shoot on a tripod with a self-timer. What that means is the blurred motion appearing in some of my 20+ frames was caused by the object's maneuvers. The object appeared to "flutter", and had a noticeable wobble, with a slip-sliding/irregular/undulating motion, yet appearing to be under intelligent command. It appears as a five-sided/pentagon shape. There was no sound, no navigational lights, and a lazy/hovering flight path. I watched and photographically recorded the object. There appears to be an aura/plasma effect surrounding the object akin to vapor thrown off from a fighter's wings in some instances. The object was due half a mile south of my vantage point at 1000 to 2000 feet altitude, by comparing to the 700 foot high Space Needle.
Note: This is a very unusual object. There balloons that resemble disk shaped UFOS that can be flown. However, based on the witness's observations there is no reason to believe that this was a balloon, but that explanation cannot be ruled out. Thanks to William Puckett, Director http://www.ufosnw.com
SYDNEY -- On July 15, 2010, at 6:36 PM, I was in the car with my mother, staring at the sky for some time when I realized there was an unrecognizable aircraft hovering at 200 meters above the ground. It flew slowly near our car, which gave us a good view of it. It was a triangle with three bright lights on the points of it, and one red flashing center light. It is still in view of me right now, from my house. It seems to be going around in circles every five minutes or so, and comes into sight for 30 minutes. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.ufocenter.com/
JAGUARIUNA -- The photo I am sending was taken in Campinas on December 28, 2009, about 1:15 PM. My wife and couple of her friends witnessed this sighting. We were driving when we saw a very bright light right in front us like a plane. But shortly afterward, we entered the Alphaville condominium climbing higher in altitude and the lights blinked more, and hovered for about three minutes. I took the photograph with my I Phone, and at that time, I would estimate that the object was about three miles from me. When we arrived home, there were still some visible lights in the sky until very late at night. (Translation (c) 2010, S. Corrales, IHU
QUEBEC -- On July 2, 2010, at 11:38 PM, we saw this beautifully slow and low flying object. Many others saw it too. There are other craft within the photo... Thanks to MUFON CMS
WINNIPEG -- On July 11, 2010, at 11:38 PM, I was driving on the south perimeter highway of Winnipeg, Manitoba with my friend and his girlfriend in the front seats. As we were passing the Brady landfill, she noticed something strange in the sky that did not look at all like an airplane.
The object looked very low in the sky and was a four-cornered shape with lights in each corner flashing green and red. We pulled over on the side of the highway to get a better look as the object started accelerating quickly west and then turned very suddenly and flew north, across the city, very fast. As this object left, another one appeared from the east, and flew west across the sky, before turning north towards the airport. It stopped and hovered northwest of the city for at least an hour, and it glowed brightly in the sky, clearly with blue/green and red lights.

Caracas -- Ovnivenezuela reports, about between 8:30 and 9:00 p.m. On Tuesday, July 20, several people witnessed the dizzying flight of an alleged luminous flying object, of strange appearance and behavior, from various parts of Caracas. According to a telephone report from one witness, who did not disclose her identity perhaps due to the brevity of the sighting, her own excitement or fear, the UFO was "circular and issued a reddish-yellow light that covered it completely, increasing and diminishing by intervals."
The UFO, which appeared to be over the western sector of the city, "not very high up in the sky" was seen with a certain degree of difficulty due to the cloudiness that covered that part of the airspace, "but the intensity of its light kept us from losing it from sight."
She said that only a few minutes after catching the attention of those who passed through the area at that precise moment, the UFO "took a downward boost and then shot upward", vanishing before their eyes. "I don't know what it is, but a commercial or military aircraft doesn't behave like that, clearly," she said excitedly.
From Plaza de la Concordia, also in the capital city's central area, Luis Maureira reported seeing a similar phenomenon at approximately the same time, but from his own home and in the company of his spouse. The object, he explained, had a "reddish cast" and looked like "a large star". There have been no reports of photos or video evidence. There are no airport reports on irregularities. According to a report from the deck personnel and duty team at the Maiqueta Airport control tower, no incidents or aerial anomalies were reported at the time.
Airport officials explained that a luminous phenomenon would not have been recorded, given that the radar systems employed only detect the presence of metallic bodies. Furthermore, their visibility reaches a 360º angle from their location in the state of Vargas, extending to the Tacagua Range in western Caracas, far from the place where the sighting occurred. Airport runway personnel did not report any irregularities either.

** Soccer Fan Took Photo from Avenida Libertador ***
Diario El Pais reports, "The Uruguayan Air Force is currently analyzing an image depicting a strange object in the sky during the welcoming ceremony for the Uruguayan soccer team on Tuesday, July 13, 2010.” "Since the bus that carried the players was passing by my workplace, I went out for a few minutes to welcome them and take a few photos. I took some photos of them and before leaving, I took a few panoramic shots of Avenida Libertador, because it was truly impressive to see so many people in one place, celebrating. At night, when I downloaded them to my computer, I saw that there was a strange dot in the sky in one photo. When I enhanced it, I saw that the dot was semicircular in shape and had several orbs underneath it,” the author of these images to EL PAIS, preferring not to disclose their name.
The Air Force, received the image yesterday for analysis and to determine if it may be an actual UFO.
Colonel Arial Sanchez, the Comission's director, told El Pais that no anomalies were recorded on July 13 in the national airspace, which was "very controlled” because jet fighters belonging to the Air Force participated in the Uruguayan soccer team's festivities. In any event, Sanchez says that a scientific investigation will be carried out with Air Force professionals and that the endeavor will yield precise data on the provenance of said object. "We have never dismissed the extraterrestrial hypothesis, but we also know that they could be physical particles or luminous manifestations,” acknowledges the colonel.
The Air Force analyzes an average of four photos per month, showing strange objects. At least three monthly reports are received from people who claim having seen a UFO. "There are some images that do not merit an analysis, because information is missing or because an insect or bird is readily seen in the photo. The photo or video is not a determining factor in any case, rather, simply a contribution, as there currently exists the potential to make hoaxes.” CRIDOVNI has analyzed 2100 cases in the past thirty years, and no explanation was found for 40 of them. "We have found truly strange objects, especially those reported by pilots or observers.”Thanks to INEXPLICATA.

HO CHI MINH CITY -- On July 19, 2010, at 10:30 PM, a very strange bright light was seen in the sky for three hours that was a 1000 times brighter than any star. Looked like a wormhole. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.ufocenter.com/
