“I feel the scientific study of UFOs is for the benefit of humankind and is an important endeavor. The weekly intelligence report provides you with information on the latest sightings and UFO news that you need to understand the world situation.”
In special reports, this week’s files cover: Russell Crowe Captures UFO on Film, Mars Rover Finds Ancient Stream-bed-Proof of Flowing Water, NASA Says Mars Had Life in the Past,
Are UFOs Signaling Data? Australian Diamond UFO Sightings, Filmmakers Capture and Icebergs Melting Quickly.
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia.
Sightings of UFOs were also reported in: Australia, Canada, Germany, India, Mexico, South Africa, Sweden, and England 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.

Russell Crowe Captures UFO on Film
SYDNEY -- Actor Russell Crowe claims to have captured possible UFO evidence on film from a balcony in Sydney, Australia.
In a series of Twitter updates, Crowe - who won the best-actor Oscar for his role in "Gladiator" and recently starred in another Oscar-nominated film, "Les Miserable’s"? insists that the pictures are real and that they don't show reflections or lens flare. What the YouTube video does show is a series of three timed-exposure photos, with a flat red light moving across the frame. Crowe said the pictures were taken by a Canon 5D with no flash that was set up on the balcony of his office in the Sydney suburb of Woolloomooloo to capture pictures of fruit bats rising from the gardens. "This was a big surprise," Crowe wrote.
Some commenter’s quickly speculated that the UFO was nothing more than reflections from a light, perhaps from a beacon on a sailboat that was passing through nearby Woolloomooloo Bay. But Crowe defended the sighting: "The camera is on a balcony, not behind glass," he told one questioner. "Can't be a lens flare because it moves, camera is fixed," he said in another tweet.
Contacted yesterday Crowe's Aussie rep clarified the alleged UFO video, shot by acclaimed cinematographer Duane Manwiller, was actually filmed in Sydney four years ago.
Asked why Crowe chose to release it now, Vandenberg said: "I have no idea."
The decision to release the old footage came several hours after the actor made a handful of obvious digs at the studio behind his latest flick Broken City"
"Mars Rover Finds Ancient Stream-bed-Proof of Flowing Water."
By examining the makeup of some of the rock formations and the many rounded pebbles nearby, the Curiosity team concluded that a fast-flowing stream once came off the crater rim and ran to the area near the rover's landing site. “Unlike the megafloods, these smaller rivers or streams are believed to have run for thousands or millions of years, rather than days or months." Morgan said. "There are huge reservoirs of ice beneath the surface and we don't really know much about its relationship with the surface."
“But the Marte Vallis finding makes clear that water from deep in the planet can and has surged to the surface through rock fractures in the relatively recent past,” he said. “And it is within the realm of possibility that something similar could set off another megaflood in the future.
Evidence of a megaflood on Mars? a surprisingly recent one that cut a 600-mile (966-kilometer) river channel into the planet?has been detected by radar from an orbiting satellite.
Scientists have known for some time about the existence of the Marte Vallis channel system. But the new radar research has doubled the estimated depth of the massive flow and identified the headwaters and floodplain of the river. The megaflood and volcano are considered especially significant because they occurred so recently, in geological terms, suggesting that Mars may well remain a geologically active planet today.
Before a new picture of Mars began to emerge over the past decade, the planet was considered to have been cold, dry, and largely geologically dead for more than three billion years.
"What we've found is that the source of this megaflood was water deep underground that was delivered to the surface through tectonic fractures," said Gareth Morgan of the Smithsonian Institution's Air and Space Museum, one of several authors of the article appearing in the journal Science.
"The source of the water, and the size of the outflow, had been something of a mystery, but the radar allowed us to look below the lava flows and see what existed there before," he said.
Morgan likened the scale of the Marte Vallis flood to that of the Missoula outpourings of some 15,000 years ago what is now Washington and Oregon. After the breaking of an ice dam at glacial Lake Missoula, the water surged westward and flooded the 200-mile-long lake in 48 hours.
The power of the water dug deep channels into the hardened lava, or basalt.
True Gullies on Mars
Images like this from the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter show portions of the Martian surface in unprecedented detail. This one shows many channels from 1 meter to 10 meters (3 feet to 33 feet) wide on a scarp in the Hellas impact basin. On Earth we would call these gullies. Some larger channels on Mars that are sometimes called gullies are big enough to be called ravines on Earth. Thanks to JPL University of Arizona.
The radar has been used extensively to investigate the Martian poles, and only more recently have investigators focused on areas such as the equatorial Elysium Planitia, the site of Marte Vallis.
These deep river channels on Mars were formed roughly 3.7 to 3.1 billion years ago. Estimated to run for 600 miles (966 kilometers) or more, these channels are some 60 miles (97 kilometers) wide. By analyzing the characteristics of the channel, the team concluded that the water flow was 262 feet (80 meters) or deeper.
The new finding is part of a recent revolution in water discoveries on Mars. Not only have researchers identified deep river channels, but they've discovered gullies of liquid water that are still forming and streams of salty water that appear to flow down some crater walls during the Martian summer.
The Mars rover Curiosity has identified a river or streambed that once tumbled into Gale Crater.
In the Earth's past there was powerful volcanic activity which could have easily spewed dirt and rocks containing microbes into outer space which not only could have eventually reached Mars but also ended up traveling in orbit through space that we now know as meteors. A Newsweek article of September 21, 1998, p.12 mentions exactly this possibility. "We think there's about 7 million tons of earth soil sitting on Mars", says scientist and evolutionist Kenneth Nealson. "You have to consider the possibility that if we find life on Mars, it could have come from the Earth" National Geographic News Published March 7, 2013.
NASA Says Mars Had Life in Past
Mars may well have been a pleasant place for tiny microbes to live, with plenty of water as well as minerals that could have served as food, NASA scientists said Tuesday at a news conference on the latest findings from their Mars rover. But they have yet to find signs that actual microbes did live in that oasis.
"That's two places in our tiny solar system where our kind of life was possible, out of the myriads of solar systems in the galaxy. The egocentric view of the universe just took another hit."
“We have found a habitable environment that is so benign and supportive of life that probably if this water was around and you had been on the planet, you would have been able to drink it,” said John P. Grotzinger, the California Institute of Technology geology professor who is the principal investigator for the NASA mission.
In drilling into its first rock, a fine-grained mudstone, the scientists said, the rover Curiosity - a self-contained science laboratory about the size of a Mini Cooper - sent back to Earth convincing evidence that Mars was once awash in water.
Curiosity scientists identified elements in the rocks - sulfur, nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and carbon - that are some of the key ingredients of life, as well as minerals, like sulfates and sulfides, that primitive microbes could eat for food. Dr. Grotzinger said these minerals are “effectively like batteries” and can provide an energy source for life. Thanks to NASA.
From Forests to Deserts in Only 34 Years
Yesterday, NASA spread the most recent and highest resolution photo of Earth in history. Compared with the photo from 1978, it is evident that the planet has deteriorated in large amounts.
Robert M. Collins writes, “The planet cannot sustain an exploding population 7 billion and growing. I predict that unless attitudes change rapidly Mother Earth will take care of the over population and it won't be very pretty.” Robert M. Collins
Are UFOs Signaling Data?
Kenneth Larson writes, “My current drawings concern the Columbus landing at San Salvador Island where he landed on Oct. 12, 1492. He and his assistant reportedly saw a bright light in the evening sky and they landed the next day. My drawings relate to Columbus 1492 landing and the UFOs over Gulf Breeze in 1992, or 500 years later; and also the four triangular UFOs seen in March 2012 over Jacksonville, Florida.
My drawings also concern the Maya Mesoamerica area that is Book of Mormon country and Old Jerusalem in 600 BC and Zion center or Independence , Missouri site dedicated by the prophet and seer Joseph Smith on August 3, 1831, under great hardship conditions of that era.”
All that I can do is record the data as I receive it in the form of drawings and typed texts and publish some of my books. If people ignore my research discoveries that is their problem. All I can do is trust in the Lord and lean not unto my own understanding so as to be guided by the Lord and Holy Spirit. Columbus said, “The Holy Spirit guided him to the New World.” The equilateral triangular UFOs relate to the Earth's measured designs and units and the UFOs may have helped create and design our nine planet solar system and possibly other exoplanets under an intelligent Creator (Genesis 1:1, Job 38:4-7, Isaiah 40:12,22..
With scientists saying the Earth is 4.5 billion years old and Big Bang 13.75 billion years old no wonder we can't understand the UFOs--a thousand years to us could be 24 hours to UFOs.
Oddly, scientists say the Russian meteorite that exploded last week came from the debris field between the 4th planet Mars and the 5th planet Jupiter in our solar system--and I discovered that Kenneth Arnold said, “There was a wide space between the fourth UFO four and the fifth UFO he saw near Mount Rainier on June 24, 1947. My World Atlas illustration of a side view shows a similar space between 4th planet Mars and 5th planet Jupiter in our nine planet solar system and this debris space is also where the rare and exploding Russian meteorite came from last week. Wow! Keep looking up.” Thanks to Kenneth Larson email@example.com
Australian Diamond UFO Sightings
Nancy Talbot writes, “The primary story is an Australian guy's is videotaping UFO’s nearly every night. Then the fact that some of his UFOs have the same diamond shape as UFOs videotaped by Megan another Aussie, when she was in England to see crop circles. Then the fact that this diamond-shaped UFO has been videotaped in several other parts of the world.”
He's got a YouTube site now so that people can see some of what is going on around him. Here's the story, explaining the connection I see with other events in the UK and in Holland (which include photos never made public before. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPMIXuWKGBE
In July 2007, an Australian crop circle enthusiast, Megan Heazlewild, was visiting Wiltshire, England to see the crop circles. While staying in an Avebury BandB one night she watched, and then videotaped, a series of amber-colored, diamond-shaped UFOs which kept appearing in the sky not far from Silbury Hill.
The husband and wife owners of the BandB also watched the objects as Megan videotaped them over almost half an hour.
Diamonds over Avebury, England
Many of the people who have seen the video are certain the objects are military flares (there are military bases not too far from the Avebury area) and--because of both the color and some of the behavior of Megan's objects--I also have wondered if they were flares. Here are a couple of screen-shots from her video and the YouTube link.
Note: These objects do not descend like flares with parachutes.

Filmmakers Capture Icebergs Melting Quickly
This researcher, James Balog has been charting the melting of glaciers for the past five years with a very sophisticated multi-point camera system. His research has found that the glaciers that are 2000 feet high are residing at the rate of 1/4 mile per year!
His findings are supportive of the news story issued recently that satellite analysis of the ice melt at the North Pole is so rapid that the North Polar region will be ice free by 2016.
He was asked to comment on the new $30 to $50 Billion proposed plan to protect and save New York City with a series of levees and twin 800 foot floodgates based upon smaller models used at New Orleans as well as a storm surge wetland area and storm surge barriers. (see photo). Response to elaborate plans such as these is that the ice is melting with a greater volume and faster rate than these stop gap measures could ever accommodate. Additionally, how many decades do you think it would take to construct these blue sky protective measures?
The times they are a changing . . . .
The footage is just one part of a new documentary called ‘Chasing Ice,’ by filmmaker James Balog, which was released in the U.K. and across the U.S. on Friday. An excerpt was published by The Guardian on Wednesday. The film documents in excruciating detail how the Greenland ice is melting due to climate change. Large glaciers are shown falling into the sea and rivers of melting ice.
“Satellite photography taken earlier this year showed that arctic sea ice shrank this summer to less than half what it was about four decades ago, reaching a record low in August 2012. The European Space Agency said, “The rate of loss is about 50 percent faster than previously forecast.” Thanks to ESA.
Sightings in the United States
Wetumpka -- I pulled in my driveway when a pop of light caught my attention coming into view over our residence at 10 PM, on March 6, 2013. I went inside for 15 minutes, and when I went outside again I saw a pulsating/strobing just above the treetops. I watched it for a minute and knew I needed to get my Sony Handy cam and began filming the object.
The object had become an "Orb" looking shape now and I filmed this for 20 minutes observing that the sky was full of twinkling stars but, on my LCD screen all I could observe was the object which made me believe that it was pretty close. I zoomed my recorder to 800X Digital Zoom and began reshooting the object. I also noticed there were now three, but difficult to get them on film. While filming my hearing was affected with a high pitched ringing tone and throughout the encounter I felt very safe and curiously loved. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Fairbanks – On Father’s Day my family decided to go out on the lawn and play crocket so I grabbed my camera to get some pictures and saw that the clouds looked different on June 6, 1995. I snapped a photo but never saw the UFO mother ship to the extent of the photo details. I did think the clouds did look strange but never gave it a thought. I was surprised to see not just one but two ships. I did not see the 2nd ship all lit up or exploding or whatever it is doing. This is the original photo that I scanned to up on the computer. I really did catch something out of this world. All my life I have been brought up to be opened minded, that there are angels and we can’t be alone in the universe. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Arizona Moving Star
I thought it was a shooting star until it changed direction, brightness and distance on March 6, 2013. My neighbor saw it as well. Thanks to MUFON CMS
PEOPLES VALLEY-- Little is known about this photo. It was sent by a friend of the photographer on March 9, 2013. The person who sent the photo is attempting to find out details of the photo. The photo is of low resolution and was likely taken with a cell phone and may be the photo a light pole or a reflection of a light pole off of the window glass.
Thanks to William Puckett,
Lincoln – The witness reports that on March 10, 2013, going into church, a ufo flew over white house across street. Thanks to MUFON CMS
California Gray Orbs
EL DORADO HILLS -- We went to Creekside Green’s Park to have a nice lunch on March 1, 2013, at 12:45 pm. We noticed 30+ grayish seagulls flying really high in a large circle. Then we noticed some were shiny and reflected the sun and I realized those were not birds! Then in a blink of an eye they were gone. Perhaps ten birds were flying in different directions, but where did the birds go? We clearly saw some planes flying lower than the birds.
Then out of nowhere, we saw three planes flying in a triangle formation, with one plane leading in front of the formation and there were two others in a pair, for a total of five objects flying like a pentagram silently. They suddenly vanished. I figure a mother ship was right above us, and the seagulls might have gone behind or inside of it. As for the planes, I think they clearly were coming from the mother ship, which was invisible. Military fighters made several passes. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.UFOcenter.com
SAN DIEGO -- I was not aware that I had taken a photo of whatever this is until I posted the photos. The photo was taken from the 33rd floor of the Manchester Hyatt on March 2, 2013. It might be one of the planets that somehow were visible during the day. This photo was shot through glass, but the white object does not appear in any of the other photos I took within seconds of each other. Thanks to MUFON CMS
NEW HAVEN -- I was bored one night and began flicking the back porch light on and off, when I notice what I thought was a satellite that looked like blue and orange sideways small hand weight. I went outside and it suddenly changed direction going backwards and stopping at the top middle of my house.
It transformed from a giant yellow ball with star like glistening qualities and a giant blue S right through it. It was a small Saturn disk the same color as the ball, also having blue tints. Then nearby there were two small red barbells. On either side. Note: This was Veterans Day but I don’t think it matters because it was a serious ufo. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Debary -- My wife and I left our house at around 9 pm, on March 9, 2013, and went up our road and saw three red orange circles. They were coming down in a staggered positions then going up in the sky so we both left the bikes and ran across us 92 to get a better look. When the first three disappeared, three more red and orange r spheres came in silently.
I took some pictures and even had a guy stop his car and ask if I saw the last one go faint and disappear. We headed home and saw a huge “V shaped thing.” A formation of ufos had these orange circles that lit up, then stopped, and it turned towards the objects as their lights went out. I could still see the triangle shape with a red light in middle. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Illinois Six Orange Lights
Edwardsville -- At Dunlap Lake my friend and I viewed six suspended orbs of golden rod or orange in close proximity to each other on March 2, 2013 in the southeastern sky. Suddenly four of the lights disappeared at 9:55 PM. The two remaining lights continued to sit in formation for one minute. One by one they faded out of site. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.UFOcenter.com
Michigan Husband and Wife's Close Encounter
SCOTTVILLE – My wife and I were playing cards in the parlor, when she asked, “What is that?” I looked out the window we watched what we both thought was seven snowmobiles on our farm on December 22, 2012. Then the lights rose up not too high, but slowly headed toward the house. The objects were getting close as viewed from our kitchen window at 2.03 am.
The back yard is incredibly lit up as the silent object flew above our house and over our shed.
I moved away from the window due to being scared, and just like that, the light disappeared. My wife noticed 31 minutes had passed while I was in the kitchen. I could not believe it, because my wife and I figured I was in the kitchen for just a couple minutes.
My wife refuses to discuss what happened, why? This event haunts me, almost daily; and I swear to God, that this story is the absolute truth. NOTE: The above image is a rendering. Ken Pfeifer MUFON NJ www.worldufophotos.org
New York Drones
New YORK - A mystery in the sky over New York City on Monday got one commercial airline pilot’s attention. The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating a report from the pilot who claimed he saw an unmanned or remote-controlled aircraft while on his final approach to John F. Kennedy International Airport. The pilot, who was at the controls of Alitalia Flight AZA 60, a Boeing 777, spotted what may have been a drone about four to five miles southeast of the airport at an altitude of 1,500 feet while on final approach to Runway 31 Right at about 1:15 PM. The pilot is heard telling air traffic controllers on radio calls recorded by the website LiveATC.net, “We saw a drone, a drone aircraft.”
But a man named Fyezil who drives an airport shuttle van told 1010 WINS’ John Montone he often sees kids flying model aircrafts in the area.
“I see it many times,” he said. “Sometimes, I see them flying so high.”
The Alitalia flight was not forced to take evasive action and landed safely minutes later, officials said. Thanks to CBS
Note: Drones can carry cameras and be outfitted to look like a UFO.
My brother and I were out-front for 30 minutes watching a helicopter fly around with a spotlight , looking for someone who fired gun shots less than a mile away from my home, the helicopter eventually left the area completely, going south towards downtown Buffalo, where it came from.
I looked up, and directly above me was a bright star like object moving slowly east.
I was trying to figure out what exactly is above me. It moved slowly and twitched like it was vibrating. I snapped a photo and it jetted north across the sky and stopped on a dime and vanished! Thanks to MUFON CMS
North Carolina Circles
Morehead City -- I received this photo from a friend in New Hanover County on January 26, 2013. He stated he kept getting urges to go out and take some photos but it was overcast and he kind of shrugged it off, until the urges became so strong he got his camera and stepped outside and snapped a few photos this is what he caught.
Thanks to Jim Sutton

Conover -- At a carp pond in Catawba County off Claremont Road I noticed three orbs come towards the trees on March 9, 2013. It hovered over a mile above me. They looked like stars at dusk, some brighter than others. Some stayed stationary while some moved around. Some seemed to band together and some grouped with others that were a twinkly blue.
I first thought it was a possible balloon but several dozen appeared and were stationary. I was excited. They eventually went northwest and faded after I videoed and took pictures. About 20 minutes later a military C 17 aircraft flew in the distance. Thanks to MUFON CMS
AUSTIN -- I took three different photos on February 8, 2013, and some kind of light would always appear. I do not have a flash on my phone so took notice to it very quickly later on when looking at the photos I took. On this particular photo I was just admiring the brightness of the sun and just snapped a picture on my way to work. Later I noticed the red light above the building.
Note: The red light highlighted in the photo is a lens flare. However, a few other objects show up in the photos which are difficult to explain.
Perhaps these other objects could be blemishes are small breaks in the windshield of the car? Thanks to William Puckett, Director http://www.UFOsnw.com
Virginia White Lights on Unique Object
Richmond – I dropped my husband off and was returning home on the Richmond Airport Connector Road on March 1, 2013, when I saw what I thought was an airplane light to my right.
As I continued to watch the plane I knew it was not heading for the airport so I figured that it was a private jet. As I watched the object it stopped and a light was bright shining down. So now I figured that the object must be police and they were looking for something.
As I came up on the object, I noticed that it was an object that I had never seen. The object was round as a cylinder and hovering over the trees, the inside was hollow except for two cylinders that went thru the middle. Half way thru these two cylinders split and made a "V" shape. I was near the object for about a minute as it took off to the northeast.
((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with this witness, and she seemed to us to be quite sincere. Her description of the object was so precise and objective; we suspect that she is a very good witness. PD)) Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.UFOcenter.com
Covington – On March 4, 2013, at 1:17 AM, there was something due east that caught my attention high in the sky. It looked different with three red lights relatively close together. The edges of the structure were noticeable, and I saw a black triangle with red lights at each inside corner. It had a very faint glow from the widest edge of the structure. The lights had a very slow strobe action, but didn’t change color; they would just turn a brighter color red for a split second, and then a steady duller red for about 10 to 15 seconds.
The lights did not chase each other like Christmas lights can. The strobing of them was random. The triangular object was stationary and I noticed an extremely bright light like a laser. It was a white pinpoint of light moving toward the triangle. It disappeared either into the triangle or passed above it. The pinpoint did not come out the other side of the triangle. I got a strange feeling and moved back into the building, shut the door and locked it. Thanks to William Puckett, Director http://www.UFOsnw.com
Everett -- I was looking out the window on March 9, 2013, when I noticed an object that appeared to be moving closer and closer. I thought it might be a helicopter but was casting a myriad of colors and changing shape and size. I grabbed my Nikon and shot a few photos. I zoomed in and to my surprise I had captured these colored photos.
Thanks to MUFON CMS
Sydney – Looking east over the slightly cloudy ocean around 9:45 pm, on March 8, 2013, when all of a sudden a really large flash of lighting came down in a straight line towards the ocean. Lighting flashes were emitting around the shape of the ufo, at the same time. It was about five miles up in the night sky so I could observe that it was very big about five times bigger than any 747 aircraft. I was amazed that it was very electrical in activity. Then after a few seconds I did not see anything again like it had disappeared. This undoubtedly will remain in my thoughts and memory for the rest of my life. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Wagga Wagga -- Ufo craft was seen which was very bright like a star, but much bigger, and had no aviation lights that flashed. I witnessed it, but after a while it just disappeared like turning off a light switch. A minute later a comet fell a few miles back from the craft’s path of travel. I observed it traveling south at a steady speed and did not vary in luminosity or shape. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Canada Two Bright Orange Pulsing Lights
Vernon, BC -- I was relaxing listening to music with my two buddies and looked out the window towards Okanagan Lake, when I spotted two lights in the sky 100 meters away from each other on March 1, 2013. The two lights were orange and were growing brighter and dimmer, almost like a flickering fire in the distance at 9:30 PM. The lights hovered slowly through the valley rotating end over end and staying the same distance away from each other.
I went outside to see if I could hear helicopter blades, but there was no noise. The object or objects would move and rotate and for about 30 seconds it just stayed stationary. We watched in awe as we discussed the possibilities of a UFO sighting, and all agreed it wasn't normal. The lights continued down the valley no faster than a helicopter and no higher than the valley mountain tops until one light went out. Then 20 seconds later the second one followed. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.UFOcenter.com
India Bright Cylindrical Silent Object
Varanasi -- My son and I were on the roof of our house when we saw a hovering bright cylindrical object on March 1, 2013, at 6 PM. My son pointed out the silent hovering cylindrical object that had no wings, left no trail, if it were a rocket. It was bright and shiny and quickly changed its path while maintaining the same direction. I am very sure it wasn't a conventional craft. It could be a manned/unmanned alien object just commencing its surveillance voyage before sunset. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.UFOcenter.com
Freiburg -- A silver disc appeared on January 2nd 2013 at 1:21 PM that flew in a straight line to south. Sometimes it disappeared behind some clouds, but re-appeared after some seconds. It was very slow in the beginning, but then speeded up and disappeared behind the clouds. In the first 20 seconds it flew very slowly, but then it speeded up faster than a plane. I think it was 50 to 100 feet in diameter. One witness saw it clearly with me with identical observations. Thanks to MUFON CMS
San Carlos -- On the beach I saw a flat oval shaped bright shiny UFO high in the sky which hovered, turned and disappeared after 90 seconds on February 7, 2013, at 10:30 AM. My friend and I were sitting on the beach and he asked, “What is that up there?” I looked and we both saw a shiny object that was like a flat oval hovering just under the sun’s rays. We watched for a minute or more and told my friend's husband to look. He stood up to look and the object made a dip to the left and went straight up and disappeared. My friend practices law and I am a real estate agent. There was no plausible explanation for what we saw other than it was an unidentified flying object. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.UFOcenter.com
South Africa Flying Object
Cape Town, Parow East – On March 10, 2013, my Mother called us to witness a strange object in the sky at 8:45 PM. At first we didn’t see it, but then we saw it appear and disappear at a different location in the night sky. It had one light in the middle and others in a half circle around it, flashing at an extremely high altitude. It would flash and disappear and would appear a great distance from its original place. Even weirder was three star like lights heading south after one another at a high speed heading in the same direction. This was sighted by my Mother, brother, sister, fiancé and I. Thanks to Will Mode.
Sweden Equilateral Orange Light Triangle
Three orange lights were seen moving slowly west about one kilometer high in sky and two kilometers from our location on February 18, 2013 at 10 PM. It pivoted slowly to reveal a perfect equilateral shape and flew southwest silently at a hot air balloon speed. Its lights were about 200 meters apart and did not change distance. Light intensity was very deep orange, significantly larger than warning lights on cell phones towers. After one minute, an additional orange light rose from the northeast with about one kilometer from the triangle object. The light was slightly larger than the lights on the triangle.
It followed the triangle at the same speed and flowed as if it could be a balloon. However after rising first about two kilometers over the hill, it sank to an altitude of 500 meters for a final altitude about one kilometer. It then proceeded to follow the triangle southeast until both were out of sight. The time was about 2145 GMT +1.

United Kingdom Sightings
53.383159N -1.476394 E -- I was out walking and saw people taking pictures and looked up and saw three big orange lights moving across the sky silently on February 18, 2013, at 9 PM. I saw three lights and a few minutes another set of lights appeared. They clearly had the shape of a triangle although two of the lights got closer to one another at one point. After four minutes, two lights of the first triangle faded away then so did the third one. And a couple of minutes later, the exact thing happened to the other triangle. It was really weird; the orange color was like a fire, actually. I wish I'd had been able to take some pictures, but I had run out of battery. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Oswestry -- At the time of the event I was doing vocal preparation when my dog barked franticly at the window on February 15, 2013, and ran to the front door as if he had seen something. I got up and checked and saw nothing. My girlfriend came down complaining that she heard a rumbling noise out the bathroom window. We saw an extremely bright light outside the window that lit up our garden. We both ran to the back door and looked out, as the dog hysterically barked outside. We saw a weirdly shaped dark object hovering over the top of the street ascending higher. My phone stopped working. I haven't seen or heard of any kind of aircraft like it in my life as I used to be in the air force. It suddenly shot off at shocking speed. Within the hour our phone started to work again, and we received calls from two people down the street who had seen the same thing.
Our dog had disappeared and we searched, but he came home by himself the next day about 4 pm, and seemed depressed and made no noise. The dog’s tail had been burned. My voice seems higher as well. Thanks to MUFON CMS

I was sitting at my desk, pondering how I could get people interested in getting my work of the last thirteen years. I have put together a DVD of Filer's Files with hundreds of great photographs and UFO sightings.
Additionally, I have decided to include my book within the DVD that includes George Ritter's exciting abduction story by Linda Moulton Howe. Broadcaster David E. Twichell has also included much of his excellent dialog for a donation of only $50.
