In special reports, this weeks files cover: Navy Blue Angels and Friends, Vatican Theologian Claims Extraterrestrial Contact Is Real, Underwater Pyramids, Mars Writing, Was Tesla the Father of 'Star Wars'?, American Indians Circular Craft, and Syria Massacre.
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Texas.
Sightings of UFOs were also reported in Australia, Canada, India, England in the United Kingdom and Zimbabwe.
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.
Andrews AFB -- I'm on your Facebook group as well as your UFO newsletter email list. I was looking through some of my pictures that I took over the weekend at the Andrews Joint Service Open House and this particular one caught my attention. Perhaps nothing out of the ordinary but I was curious and thought you might be interested in offering an opinion or suggesting another source for me to share this with. My first reaction was that the blurred objects might have been the opposing soloists in the background. That wouldn't account for the third blurred object, however. I wondered, too, if I might have caught an image of birds--there were several that I had noted flying around during the show. Thanks to Matt Lindquist.
Editors Note: Objects are similar to UFOs frequently observed at Air shows
In the movie," the Day the Earth Stood Still," the actor Keanu Reeves states:
"The Earth is dying, humans are killing it. The Earth is one of a few planets that can support advanced life in this area of the universe and it must be saved for other advanced species."
R. M. Collins writes, "You'll find that Earth is a very unique planet (appreciate that fact) and coveted by many alien species just like the US is coveted by many foreign nationals. And remember, the human species is very unique and is why they want human DNA and blood on a regular basis. Seeded humans? From evidence it's just the other way around, we are their salvation. Thanks to R. M. Collins
ROME -- Monsignor Corrado Balducci, a former insider close to the Pope has gone on national Italian television five times to proclaim, Extraterrestrial contact is a real phenomenon The prelate announced that the Vatican is receiving much information about extraterrestrials and their contacts with humans from its Nuncios (embassies) in various countries, such as Mexico, Chile and Venezuela. Monsignor Balducci said that he is on a Vatican commission looking into extraterrestrial encounters, and how to cope with the emerging general realization of extraterrestrial contact. Balducci provided the Catholic Church's analysis of extraterrestrials, emphasizing that extraterrestrial encounters "are NOT demonic, they are NOT due to psychological impairment, they are NOT a case of entity attachment, but these encounters deserve to be studied carefully."
Since is a Vatican expert exorcist, and since the Catholic Church has historically demonized many new phenomena that were poorly understood, his proclaiming the Vatican's non-censure of these encounters is all the more remarkable. Unfortunately, Monsignor Balducci passed away but is work is being continued and the Vatican closely follows this phenomenon.
In his testimony Balducci explained that not only the general populous but also highly credible, cultured, and educated people of high status are recognizing more and more that this is a real phenomenon. He goes on to speak about the extraterrestrial people as part of Gods creation and that they are not angels nor are they devils. However they are probably more spiritually evolved.

The surface of Mars is covered with various structures and writing as provided by the European Space Agency the n like is the symbol for Capricorn and like for Leo.
UFOs are frequently reported entering and leaving our oceans. Recently American and French scientists as well as other countries are the Bermuda Triangle, claim to have found a pyramid standing upright on the seabed that has never been known. The length of the base of this pyramid reached 300 meters, 200 meters height, and distance from the tip of the pyramid is about 100 meters above sea level. Preliminary results show this structure to be made of glass or a glass-like (crystal?) material, as it is entirely smooth and partially translucent.
When talking about size, this newly re-discovered pyramid is larger in scale than the pyramids of ancient Egypt. On top of the pyramid there are two very large holes, sea water at high speed move through the second hole, and therefore the raging waves roll by forming a giant vortex that makes the waters around this cause a massive surge waves and mist on the sea surface. This new discovery makes scientists wonder if this is having an effect on passing boats and planes and could be the reason for all the mystery surrounding the area.
Western scholars argue that the pyramid on the seabed was built on the mainland, but sunk after a devastating earthquake. Other scientists argue that a few thousand years ago these pyramids on the sea floor were some of the structures in a great civilization such as Atlantis that sunk beneath the Bermuda Triangle...
The size of the pyramids is nearly three times the size of the pyramids of Cheops. There is also a picture that the Bermuda triangle and the area where this pyramid was supposedly located may be some sort of "holy grounds" that is being protected by the fabled Atlanteans or some other ancient civilization such as the Olmecs.
"It doesn't sound too real to me," said Calvin Jones of the Florida state Division of Historical Resources. "Im always open minded because we're always learning new things. But the idea of a pyramid structure, let alone one made of glass, under more than 10 feet of water ? the chances are about one in a million."
Jones said if it is a genuine archaeological find, the pyramid would have to have been built between 10,000 B.C. and 6,000 B.C., when the continental shelf was not covered by water, said Chisholm. Florida archaeologists agree with him on the time span, but disagree with many other of his group's claims. Florida State University anthropologist Glen Doran professor said the earliest Near East pyramids are dated to about 4,000 B.C. and New World pyramids are dated after 1 A.D. So any such structure off the coast of Florida would be at least 2,000 years older than all other known pyramids.
In 1977, a mysterious discovery was made on the floor of the Atlantic concerning an unknown technology. A 650-foot pyramid was mysteriously lit up, with sparkling white water surrounding it that turned deep green, a shocking contrast to the dark black waters at that depth. The discovery was photographed by Ari Marshalls expedition off Cay Sal, Bahamas. Another huge pyramid, in 10,000 feet of Atlantic water, was reported to have been found by Tony Beniks expedition. More underwater pyramids were found off Central America, Yucatan, and Louisiana, where domes were found in the Straits of Florida. A marble Greek style building was found between Florida and Cuba. Other pyramids have been explored by a Dr. Ray Brown on the sea floor off the Bahamas in 1970. Brown was accompanied by four divers who also found roads, domes, rectangular buildings, and unidentified metallic instruments. The metal devices and crystals were taken to Florida for analysis at a university there.
During one of his dives, Brown came across a strange pyramid shape silhouetted against the aquamarine light. Upon investigating further, Brown was surprised by how smooth and mirror-like was the stone surface of the whole structure, with the joints between the individual blocks almost indiscernible. Brown discovered an entrance and decided to explore inside. Passing along a narrow hallway, Brown finally came to a small rectangular room with a pyramid-shaped ceiling. This room contained no algae or coral growing on the inner walls. They were completely spotless! In addition, though Brown had brought no torch with him, he could nevertheless see everything in the room with his normal eyesight. The room was well lit, but no direct light source was visible. Many of the worlds cities have been built on the sea shore. When the glaziers melt the ocean rises and covers many of the worlds ancient cities. The ocean is expected to rise if the ice and snow melts in the Arctic. Additionally, some areas tend to settle lower during earthquakes while some increase in height many thousands of feet like the Andes Mountains of South America.
On many sea floors around the world large high buildings with exquisite carvings have been found. These are not modern structures that often include pyramids, so surely they were created before they sank to the bottom of the sea. We are simply seeing the results of a cataclysmic earth changing events which resulted in raised sea levels and many lost coastal civilizations. It is likely to happen again as the Earth warms. http://www.philipcoppens.com/nap_art15.html
We were taught that radio was invented by an Italian named Guglielmo Marconi? And that the legendary Thomas Alva Edison devised today's electrical power system? "We were taught wrong," said Toby Grotz, president of the International Tesla Society. Two years before Marconi demonstrated his wireless radio transmission, [Nikola Tesla] performed an identical feat at the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago.
On June 21, 1943, in the case of Marconi Wireless Telegraph Co. vs. the United States, the Supreme Court ruled that that Tesla's radio patents had predated those of the Italian genius. To be sure, Edison invented the incandescent light bulb. But he powered it and all of his other projects with inefficient direct current (DC) electricity. It was Tesla who discovered how to use the far more powerful phased form of alternating current (AC) electricity that is virtually the universal type of electricity employed by modern civilization.
There are indications that Tesla also discovered many of the devices ... for the Pentagon's controversial Star Wars antimissile defense system. "Tesla dreamed of supplying limitless amounts of power freely and equally available to all persons on Earth," said Grotz. And he was convinced he could do so by broadcasting electrical power across large distances just as radio transmits far smaller amounts of energy. Tesla's tests ... caused lights to burn as much as 26 miles away, according to news reports of the time.
Note: Tesla was written out of history texts likely because he advocated providing methods for extremely cheap electricity available to everyone. He successfully transmitted electricity through the air to lights 26 miles away. Yet the rich energy power brokers of his time could not stand for this. Only the little known Supreme Court ruling mentioned above restored his claim as original inventor of the radio.

Reported by Indians: A circular craft that flies the speed of a thought and came from the Star-king. It had seats. It included a strange shiny ball. A crop circle is involved. The beings are slight of stature.
The following Native American account is not merely suggestive of UFOs; it can without a doubt be termed a UFO sighting. It has a lightning fast UFO, crop circles, and specie collection. Not only is it one of the best examples of possible evidence that Extraterrestrial Biological Entity (EBE) existed before the 20th century, but the best documented. The account I now deal with was printed in a book published in 1871. The book was edited by General James S. Brisbin, U.S.A., and is an account about the real life history of George P. Belden while he spent 12 years among the Sioux Tribe. The story was a Sioux myth that was told to Mr. Belden before the American Civil War. One thing is certain this book was not tainted by any of the modern 20th century ideas about flight or aliens.
The story is found on Page 501 of the above mentioned book, and it forms a chapter called: "The Magic Circle on the Prairie." It is a story about a young hunter who stumbles upon an area on the prairie where the grass was missing because of a "circular path trodden smooth by long use." On the path the young hunter saw that recent prints had been made by what appeared to be small human feet. He then decides to hide in the tall grass and see what would turn up. He knew the being or beings would return because the circular path had been made "by long-continued and frequent use."
"After a short time his vigil was broken by music, very faint at first, but exceedingly sweet, which seemed to descend out of the heavens. Guided by the melody, his keen eye discovered a speck far up in the sky. Soon the speck grew larger, and the music plainer and sweeter still . . ." The object, now the size of a bird, approached nearer. Then the object was on top of the position and came to rest in the very middle of the circle. The story describes the object as a "magic car" (a word that in the 19th century meant chariot) and the story describes the object as "a very large basket, but made of very light ozier."
This account about the basket reminds one of the Southwestern Indians and their 'taweyah' (magic flying shield). The legend that Belden heard was no doubt very old and like most such tales it takes a romantic turn and includes such things as the young hunter turning himself into other forms. But this is to be expected since for a story to survive it had to become a mystic legend and carry teachings about life and religious power.
In the basket he sees what are called twelve fair "maidens" who sat on cushions inside the basket. (Remember that most baskets made by the Indians were round.) Each girl had a drum and as the craft landed the girls sprang out and began to dance around the basket and to "strike a shining ball from one to another."
The young hunter, after listening to their music, finds that he desires one of the maidens. He attempts to grab her but the twelve return quickly to the basket and take off. The basket speeds off "with the quickness of thought, back to the skies and out of sight." He returns several more times and takes the disguise of various animals so that he might sneak up on the maiden.
Finally he grabs the girl he desires and the other eleven leap in the basket and flies off again. The girl is forced to return with him to his village where she has his child. Finally she decides to escape and makes a large basket for herself and child. She then collects many items from the world to take back to her father the "Star-king". She makes her escape. But after some years she returns for her husband, the young hunter, because her father wants him to come to live with them. When the hunter "heard the message from the star "he accepts the invitation and spends many days collecting parts of many animals to take back. When also "he had collected specimens of all that was beautiful or useful in the chase", he took them to his wife and they took off in the basket. He comes to the star land and gives the presents to the Star-king. The story then ends on a note of magic as each of the star people pick from the gifts and are transformed into the animal that was represented by the specimen.
While this story is mixed with typical legendary lore it contains certain aspects that connect to the modern UFO accounts. It has a circular craft that can fly at the speed of a thought. This craft is said to come from the Star-king. It has 12 cushions or seats. The pilots play with some sort of ball that is shiny. The craft is connected to a large ring on the prairie where the grass has been trodden down. The beings are slight of stature and seem interested in collecting body-parts from animals. The young hunter is taken away to live with them. Even the sexual union is not unheard of in modern accounts. This story has all the elements of an Unidentified Flying Object. Those who remained behind attempted to understand the events around the object by attaching to it standard lore about magic and love. By: Kiva Traveler

Last Friday, the Houla massacre in Syria left 108 dead, most of them women and children executed in cold blood. Despite clear evidence of repeated detentions, torture and indiscriminate shelling of civilian areas by Syrian government forces, it has taken the horror of Houla to finally drive home to the world what has been obvious for months. The UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights said most of the 108 victims including 49 children and 34 women had been shot in their homes. No more than 20 had been killed by the tank and artillery fire which preceded the raid.
The Assad regime backed by Russia and China will continue its fight to stop the revolution and keep the government in power. But the Syrian people will not forget the massacre and the Sunni majority will rise up against the government. Turkey and other nations can be expected to provide weapons and ammunition. A battle cry to "Remember Houla" is now imprinted in their collective minds,
The armed uprising led by Syria's 90% majority Sunni Muslim dissidents is gaining strength and President Bashar al-Assad's minority Alawite sect will eventually lose power. Alawites are an offshoot of Shiite Islam who compromise 10 percent of Syria's population, and rose to political dominance five decades ago by controlling the army and security apparatus in the majority Sunni Muslim country.
The Assad family allowed the shabiha to emerge in the 1970s and gangs operated with few constraints and were generally seen as being above the law and ruling by force. Its members were reportedly armed by the Defense Brigades, paramilitary units commanded by Hafez's brother, Rifaat. Irregular "shabiha" forces unleashed against protesters, are blamed for most of the up close killings and terror.
Throughout the uprising, many Syrians have said they have seen heavily-armed men dressed in black fighting alongside the security forces and called "shabiha"... These men are accused not only of killing and beating some 9,000 people who attend demonstrations, but also of carrying out a campaign of intimidation that has included executions, drive-by shootings and sectarian attacks.
"They're not afraid to use violence, weapons, racketeering and blackmail," It is not clear exactly who they are and to whom they are loyal, but the term "shabiha" has repeatedly been used to describe them. Possibly derived from the Arabic word for "ghost" ("shabh"), it has come to mean "thugs" in modern day Syria. The people are facing a war of annihilation and the international community has done little. The people have nothing but religion for solace.
TOMBSTONE I was watching over my kids playing in a kiddy pool in our back yard on May 20, 2012, about 12:35 PM, and my eyes were drawn to a column of dust left by a dust devil. I noticed a hovering object that then started moving very slowly in an easterly direction. It was too high up, and away from any known objects to get any real perspective. It could have been as far away as over Phoenix and as high up as possibly orbital. It moved slowly south. My wife came out onto our back deck and asked what I was looking at and we noticed there was another smaller object nearby. She grabbed her Canon EOS Rebel with telescopic lens and took 49 pictures. We could see up to 13 of the smaller objects and several moved to the bigger object then moved away at a different direction. At 12:50 PM, I posted that we lost sight of them as they moved north and dissipated.
I have been with the military for 26+ years; much of it as an Intelligence and aviation analyst. I have never seen anything like this before. The only thing I can propose is that it was an unusual effect of the annular solar eclipse. The movement could be attributed to atmospherics and one star becoming visible while one was disappearing from view. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Reseeda -- We were sitting on the porch on June 3, 2912 when someone said, "What are those dots in the sky are those balloons? They were hovering perfectly still and totally unaffected by the wind. They were both white but as they began to move one of them changed to a pinkish red color. The orbs began to move across the sky slowly in a perfect line. They drifted over us at high altitude, as I noticed numerous other planes passing below them.
We followed the orbs across the sky and they disappeared. Thanks to MUFON CMS
FORT COLLINS On June 1, 2012, at 10:30 PM, I was looking up at an incredibly bright streak in the front of a craft the shape of a shoebox but slightly wider. The front sloped down at a 45 degree angle and had a windshield on it. The craft was a dull grey aluminum flying at about 4,000 feet and traveling at 1,000+ miles per hour. My best guess it is probably 50 feet long, 35 feet wide and 20 feet high. The trail of light appeared to be caused by the craft traveling through the air, not by the propulsion unit. After about three seconds the craft dimmed and the mile long trail died out. The craft made no sound even though it was traveling fast and relatively close to me. Thanks to MUFON CMS
DOVER -- I was at work outside on my lunch break on May 28, 2012, when I saw three bright lights hovering over top the sky boxes on the other side of the track. I tried to get a picture but they were gone when I pulled my phone out. I then saw six bright lights appear, and got a picture of them hovering as one started moving very fast. I was kind of scared and my battery was completely drained. As quick as I could snap two pictures they were gone.
Thanks to MUFON CMS
Plantation --My fianc was outside smoking cigarettes on January 1, 2012, around 9:30 pm about four minutes air time from the airport when he noticed these flying lights. By the time I got my camera phone ready I had captured about half of the lights before they disappeared into, well, into the air. The entire time these lights were in the sky - not one plane took off or landed.
TINLEY PARK -- I was at home in my driveway when I noticed a glowing orange object come out of a thunderstorm cloud that was south of my position on March 17, 2012. Object kept flying over my head and continued heading north. I took out my phone and snapped off pictures of it as it was coming toward me, and moving away. It made no noise and looked like a fireball. I watched the object fly north till it was no longer visible. When I enlarge the pictures the fireball is a glowing orange line that changes shape. I can make out the outline of the cylinder from the heat source. The glowing line is inside of the cylinder. My opinion is it was a cloaked object that was struck by lightning. Thanks to MUFON CMS
OVERLAND PARK - On June 4, 2012, this light showed up out of nowhere for a few seconds. It got very bright, then flew for a few seconds and disappeared into the night sky! Thanks to MUFON CMS
Cape Girardeau -- About 9:45 PM, on May 28, 2012, driving a mile from Southeast Medical Plaza, I could see a large commercial airliner making a landing approach across Highway I-55. Its lights were about 500 feet high descending over the Plaza. I didn't think Cape Girardeau had a commercial airport. She mentioned she'd seen some strange lights just before acknowledging the lights passing in front of us.
The object was about 300 feet in length and banked slightly right and leveled off! The front light was white and strobbing. Then there were two white lights close together, and three white lights "in-line" on the craft. The last three lights were in a tight triangle a distance from the two "middle" lights, but slightly higher "in-line" on the craft. The front light appeared to be under the nose with two lights under the center, and the last three lights were a small triangle in the middle of the tail. The top lights were green and the two bottom lights were red. This did not appear to be a FAA regulation lighting arrangement and we both thought the lights were strange, possibly approaching Cape Girardeau Regional airport. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Seaside Heights -- We were at the edge of the boardwalk on June 2, 2012, and saw a strange cloud far out into the ocean, at edge of the pier. It was just a large cloud rolling off the ocean coming towards us coming close to the pier and it turned south along the beach, over the water. We could easily make out 6 to 8 turbine type emissions like a propane torch from the rear without sound. We were very close and this vehicle was the most amazing thing I have ever witnessed as it hovered 12 feet off the water.
This was a large vehicle with cloud cover surrounding most of the object with its flame type emissions. As it flew away, the fire like exhaust was eventually covered by a cloud. This case is under investigation by Ken Pfeifer of MUFON N.J. WORLD UFO PHOTOS
Lake Wylie -- I was with my wife, two sons (ages 14 and 13) and Daughter (age 9) fishing from my friends pier on May 27, 2012, in Belmont. My daughter pointed up to see a bright orange flood light hovering at 1,000 feet that then climbed out of sight. A couple of minutes later, another object descended from the east at high altitude and was followed by five other identical objects in LOOSE formation. They flew away in various directions as one maneuvered towards us until it was hovering 500 feet away and roughly 500 feet altitude. My son began taking pictures as the light slowly faded and there was a solid, deep black DISC shaped object hovering and spinning counter clockwise and maneuvering south towards the Duke Energy Allen Steam Station.
I am a Navy Veteran, in radar, air intercept operations and aircraft warfare and also saw UFOs in May of 2005, over Lake Wylie. I also saw disc shaped objects over the past few months and took pictures! I am VERY concerned about these objects interfering with the takeoff and landing patterns for Charlotte Airport. I have a video from last April, which clearly shows a commercial airplane taking evasive action away from a UFO while taking off to avoid this object. There HAS to be some pilots/Air Controllers that have knowledge of this. Thanks to MUFON CMS

GREENSBURG -- I was working outside and saw a shadow appear on the street on May 29, 2012, assuming it was a large bird, I looked up and saw a silver vertical swath of an object moving slower than the wind, at steady 4 mph, and traveling in line above the power lines. Wind was blowing in a slightly different direction. The sunlight reflected off it and it had bubble like impressions in the surface, the lower part was dark. A tree obstructed its view and it was gone. No other objects were in the sky. I saw it for ten seconds thirty feet in the air. It looked to me like the magnetic field from the power lines exposing the tangent of a sphere but not more than nine feet high was exposed. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.

Greeneville --This photo was shot from my back porch, thats how close I am to Greene Mountain here in, TN. There was a storm coming and I noticed an unusual amount of clouds rolling down over the mountain on October 28, 2011, so I shot at least 20 photos, but did not physically see the objects until I uploaded it to my computer.
Thanks to MUFON CMS
Grapevine -- On May 28, 2012, there was a storm with lightning so I went out back to take pictures about 9 PM. I started taking pictures when I saw a weird funnel and a light coming down as it started flying so I started filming. I have it all on my IPhone.
Note: The above video has been enhanced to show the light. Thanks to William Puckett, Director http://www.UFOsnw.com
Wollongong My partner and I went to Wollongong Harbor to view the waves from a storm we were having on October 16, 2011. It was windy and dark, as we took photos of people in wet suits braving the waves when we captured the object. We didn't see it at the time only when we returned home to view the pictures on our computer. I believe that we are not alone and excited if its what it looks like.
Thanks to MUFON CMS
Lebanon -- This video was taken May 26, 2012, at 4:49 AM using generation 3 pvs-7 night vision goggles recording onto a Sony Cyber shot camera. I noticed it had three lights and then as it got even closer it actually had four lights traveling northwest. It appears to be some sort of craft that may be mimicking an airplane since it has flashing lights. You can clearly see four bright lights or engines that are connected by a structure holding things together. It also connects from the front light to the back light through the middle of the craft. The tail light flashes, then the left light flashes, followed by the front light flashing. I did not see the right light flash.
Note: When I first viewed this infrared (IR) video I thought that the witness had videotaped a conventional aircraft, but still images and enlargements indicate that it was not a conventional aircraft. Thanks to William Puckett, Director http://www.UFOsnw.com
Kengeri -- My family saw a UFO in the Bangalore sky on May 22, 2012.
After dinner we were on our terrace and my younger son Sanjay was sleeping facing the sky and said I can see a satellite moving. My son aged 18 and I saw a silently moving large triangle in the sky at 9.45 pm. We saw the object for 25 seconds and my wife joined us for a 15 second view. The object was five times bigger than an aircraft. After 20 minutes, the triangle flew north over Kengeriwith a fast small light following. The technology is not from the earth. Why isnt there a military toll free number to report when such incidences occur? Thanks to MUFON CMS
Durham On May 28, 2012, this witness has taken several videos and photos of strange airborne objects and lights. He says that he sees these objects and then takes videos and/or photos.

The sighting occurred in 30 July 1952, when RAF fighter pilot Flight Sergeant Roland Hughes was on a training flight over West Germany in a de Havilland Vampire FB9. As he was returning to base, he reported being intercepted by a "gleaming silver, metallic disc" which flew alongside his aircraft before speeding off. The mystery object was also detected by RAF radars on the ground, which recorded it travelling at speeds far in excess of any known aircraft.
Hughes reported the sighting to his senior officers who sent him to see Duncan Sandys, the then aviation minister, to brief him personally.
Following the meeting, Sandys went on to tell senior civil servants he was convinced by the airman's story.
The existence of the sighting has emerged in papers released by the Sir Winston Churchill Archive, at Cambridge University. The documents are among thousands released by the archive in recent years. In the airman's account, relayed via his son, he was in one of four aircraft from No. 20 Squadron, of the RAF's 2nd Tactical Air Force, returning to RAF Oldenburg, in northern West Germany, flying in formation at high altitude in clear visibility.
He reported seeing a sudden flash of "silver light" in the sky high above him which rapidly descended towards him until he could see that it was a "gleaming silver-metallic disc".
The airman said its surface was shiny, "like tin foil", and "without a single crease or crinkle in it". He could see, with "astonishing clarity", the aircraft's "highly reflective and absolutely seamless metallic-looking surface". He estimated its size at 100 feet across. It flew alongside him for several seconds before flying off at great speed.
After the sighting, Hughes was nicknamed "Saucer Sam" by colleagues, who painted a cartoon of a flying saucer on his jet?

Harare -- On May 2, 2012, at 14:49 pm, I have just seen a UFO, as I was looking at an Ethiopian Airlines plane that had just turned from taking off and the object was behind it! It was really high in the sky and changed shape a few times from being circular to being elongated, when it was circular it was white, pretty easy to see, when it was elongated it was a grayish color. It was about the size of a star, it stayed as a circular shape for about five minutes. It seemed to move and flew a bit lower and grew in size. It just zoomed off fast and disappeared!
