“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: NASA Disc Photo, Steven Bassett Put Together a Great Citizens Hearings on Disclosure, Star Trek into Darkness, Ray Fowler is Well, Israel’s Airstrike on Syria Effective, Sympathy and Gratitude, and Victoria and Liz Were the Light of the World.
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over: Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Texas, Virginia, Washington D.C. and Wisconsin.
Sightings of UFOs were also reported in: Argentina, Australia, Canada, Chili, New Zealand, 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.
Dedicated to 5 year old Georgie Filer V whose motto was “Be Happy” and Eddie Pedrick my grandsons who drowned and my two beautiful daughters Elizabeth Lynn died March 8, 2013 and Dr. Victoria Anne Filer died April 27, 2013.
The image has sparked intense debate among UFO believers and skeptics alike. Some believe the image is evidence that NASA is not being entirely honest with us while others are of the opinion that the anomaly can be put down to lens flare. "Apparently NASA astronauts thought this was interesting enough to take some photos of it and one accidentally made it onto the NASA public site," Waring added.
An unidentified flying object has been captured hovering above the Earth's surface in an image uploaded to the NASA website, sparking feverish debate among citizens.
An image taken from orbit that was featured on NASA's website shows a potentially otherworldly extra.
The impressive shot was taken from high above where ribbons of cloud cover can be seen far below. Eagle-eyed Internet users however managed to see something else in the frame - a small disc-shaped object towards the top of the picture. "Look carefully at the NASA photo above and not only will you notice a UFO in it but if your computer screen brightness is higher, you will also notice that there is a glowing aura around the UFO," said UFO researcher Scott C Waring. http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/viewnews.php?id=247645

Steven Bassett Put Together a Great Citizens Hearings on Disclosure
Six former Congress members were convinced about UFOs, but not the news media.
National Press Club Hearings on Disclosure
Alexandra Petri, Published: May 3, 2013 in Washington Post stated in part, “The activist Stephen Bassett observed that this subject is a third rail for media and public officials. “You can be gay and have five wives and you can do anything and get out of the closet on it and it’ll be no problem but this… watch out, your careers on the line. The social opprobrium attached to this issue was launched in 1953… little green men ha ha ha ha ha.”
“It’s not just the government doing the embargo,” he adds. “We are doing it because we have been brainwashed to laugh at it.” At a certain point it became impossible to argue.
Daniel Sheehan, a panelist, suggested that the Pope and the Queen of England be the first to tell us (“they’re the same age”) although “If they were to make an announcement that indeed UFOs are visiting…the younger generation would push for an earthling orientation.” Thanks to the Washington Post.
Note: The Queen’s husband Prince Phillip has been interviewing aircrews who spotted UFOs for years.
Thousands of Airline Pilots Witness UFOs
WASHINGTON Captain Jim Courant at left sat next to me at the Citizens Disclosure Hearings and stated Airline pilots often see unidentified flying objects, but very few report it because of ridicule and possible loss of their jobs. Captain Jim Courant, a commercial pilot for over 31 years, says there are many more sightings that are just not reported.
“It is almost astounding how many people are in the know on this subject,” he said, speaking before the Citizens Hearing on Disclosure at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on May 3.
Courant has been researching and studying the phenomena of UFOs for years. He has collected over 3,000 books on UFOs and extraterrestrials, and hosted a television series on the issue titled “New Perspectives” which ran for three years.
He still flies for a commercial airline and because of his exposure on television has become known as an authority on UFO’s and extraterrestrial encounters. He has been contacted, and still is, by many commercial airline and military pilots who are happy to discuss their UFO’s encounters privately but do not want to talk publicly, fearing ridicule and in some cases retaliation.
“They are afraid,” not so much about their status or their retirement benefits, but “they are more afraid for their families,” he said.
He described the experience of one pilot who was flying a 747 over the Pacific in 1980, when he came across a UFO in front of him. “You won’t believe what we saw,” the pilot had said, according to Courant. “This thing was bigger that a 747.”
Courant said the pilot told him that when he got to his destination in Japan, he “was debriefed and told never to talk about it again.”
Courant told the hearing about his own encounter with a UFO. In 1995, he was flying near Albuquerque, New Mexico, when he and his co-pilot saw a blue green oval shape approaching from the left. “In a flash of burning white light, the object suddenly shot up at a 45 degree angle,” he told the hearing. Four other pilots reported to the air traffic control tower that they had also seen the object.
“One pilot said it must have been a meteor,” Courant recounted, adding, “I got on and said ‘Since when does a meteor go back up?’” When asked about his co-pilot’s reaction in a telephone conversation following the Disclosure hearing, Courant said, “He refused to discuss it and has never flown with me again.”
Courant showed a copy of “The Fire Officer’s Guide to Disaster Control,” that was published in these files in 2008. Chapter 13 is located at http://www.nationalufocenter.com/ in Curiosities [i].
Courant said pilots have reported seeing a variety of craft that appear suddenly and move at speeds impossible with present technology. Reports include cigar shaped craft, triangular craft, and some that are the size of an aircraft carrier or larger.
He says airline pilots are “very serious in their profession” and not likely to make exaggerations.
The website NAPCAR, co-founded in 1999, by Dr. Richard F. Haines, a recognized specialist in UFOs and a former Chief Scientist at NASA’s Ames Research Center, has been effective at documenting over 3,500 sightings by military, commercial pilots, but Courant says more needs to be done. UFO sightings are only “the tip of the iceberg” in terms of what has been experienced and what is known about extraterrestrials, he said. “There are certain things I have been privy to, but I can’t get into that here,” he told the hearing.
Courant said it was time for the United States government to come clean with what its agencies have documented and learned through decades of extraterrestrial encounters.
Airline pilots know what they have seen; he said and should be able to talk about it without fear of ridicule. Thanks to the airline flying UFO

Ray Fowler is Well
Ray Fowler writes “Thought I should let you know that I am very much alive and very, very healthy. My doctor tells me that I will live to be 100 so please refrain from informing people of my death” Best, Ray Fowler who writes about the Paperback Edition of Watchers II!
This is the fourth book in a fascinating series which follows the longest and most well-documented case of interaction between aliens and human beings. The first three volumes describe the strange interactions between a couple and the alien presence involving mysterious unmarked helicopters, strange paranormal experiences and time loss abductions.
The book reveals the paranormal metaphysical and spiritual dimensions of what the abduction encounter is pointing toward. It is a whole new understanding of what reality and life is all about for human beings. It reveals the positive side of alien contact- the opportunity to gain new insights into the spiritual dimensions of reality and to discover how aliens have played a major role in the development of our religious history. Thanks to Ray Fowler
Israel’s Airstrike on Syria Effective
Israel’s airstrike on Syria was timed to precede a- rebel offensive against President Bashar Al-Assad’s forces according to Egyptian and Jordanian intelligence sources. Al Qaeda-led forces are allegedly advancing on Damascus in coordination with the air strikes. Last week’s strikes target was Fatah 110 missiles, which have very precise guidance system with a better aim than anything Lebanese Shiite Hezbollah has in its arsenal. Israel will not allow sophisticated weapons to flow from Syria to the Lebanese Hezbollah militia.
The main concern for the Lebanese Hezbollah movement is that the collapse of the Syrian regime and its replacement by one led by the overwhelmingly Sunni opposition that will undermine its dominant role in Lebanon. The movement has long relied on Syria for the transshipment of arms supplied by its chief ally, Iran.
This photo released by the Iranian Defense Ministry, claims to show the upgraded surface-to-surface Fateh-110 missile at an undisclosed location, in Iran. The Fateh-110, or "Conqueror" in Farsi, is a short-range ballistic missile developed by Iran. The Islamic Republic unveiled an upgraded version last year that improved the weapon's accuracy and increased its range to 300 kilometers (185 miles). Iranian Defense Minister Gen. Ahmad Vahidi said at the time that the solid-fueled missile could strike with precision, making it the most accurate weapon of its kind in Iran's arsenal.
Reports indicate Israel's weekend airstrike on Jamraya Military Research Complex near the Syrian capital of Damascus killed at least 42 Syrian soldiers, based information from military hospitals. Some reports claimed at least 100 Syrian Army troops were killed.
Apparently, Syria’s sophisticated air defense system has been “substantially” degraded during two years of civil war. The air defense system is was the chief reason the US declined to establish a no fly zone over Syria.
In the weeks preceding the airstrike, the Syrian Army had scored notable victories against FSA rebels taking back much of Homs a major industrial center the third largest city in Syria of 653,000 people. Thanks to Reuters.
Sympathy and Gratitude
Dr. Marco Polo writes, “Dear Maj. Filer: You should know that your loyal readers are praying for you and for your loved ones. We know how it feels to lose so many near and dear to you, and those of us who trust in the Lord know that He has His reasons, and those reasons are always for the best. Still, you are here and I want you to know that you are not alone.
We who follow Filer's Files weekly are so grateful to you for your commitment and courage to doing this vital work. A great shadow looms over America if she tries to hide this secret much longer. Those who love freedom are not afraid of the light of truth. Our blessed Lord Jesus spoke about Truth and preached Truth. He was not afraid for He knew that Truth frees us from ignorance and sin.
Anyhow, sir, thank you sincerely for all you do and have done. May God and Christ bless you forever, and may Life be sweeter for you.” Best regards, Dr. Marco Polo, Psychologist. Toronto Canada
Victoria and Liz Were the Light of the World
My lovely daughters Vic and Liz both passed away during the last few months due to illness. I’m suffering from the agony of separation from them and they are greatly missed. They gave me the gift of faith and realization that there is a Giver of life.
And I think faith is a gift that provides strength and happiness.
As Vicky approached death I assured her that the body of evidence shows she was not coming to the end of existence, but to the beginning of another journey. The Bible names God as the source of immortality, who created us in His likeness, and that His plan is to welcome His children eventually into His eternal home.
There will be a Memorial Service for Dr. Victoria Anne Filer at 3 PM Saturday May 18, 2013 at the Come Alive New Testament Church, 240 Old Marlton Pike Medford, New Jersey.
You are all invited.
Sightings in the United States
Arkansas Moving Lights
WALDRON -- On April 6, 2013, we decided to go back and see what we could see, since I just purchased a very nice Nikon D5200 DSLR camera, tripod, wide-angle lenses and large SD card. We wanted to capture something on film, so, I took my dad and two sisters out for a few hours of photography.
After not seeing anything, and taking 196 time-lapse fifteen second photos, I got home and began looking at the pictures. There was an odd streak and I brightened the image and saw a lot more streaks. Nothing can account for the luminescence captured since there was very little light. This is only one of 200 photos that show movement. I did brighten the image to see more detail.
My father and I first witnessed odd objects in the night sky at Poteau River Site 13 Lake Hinkle Dam (just Southwest of Waldron, Arkansas) in the late 1990s on a night fishing trip. Thanks.
Hacienda Heights -- I am a state licensed branch 3 (WDO Inspector #43953), or better known as a "Termite" Inspector. I take pix during my inspections to document my findings. Later on May 10, 2013, while going over the inspection pictures I noticed an anomaly in one of the last shots I took while facing west.
I am not claiming this to be a ufo, but it seems to have solidity and was silent. To be honest, it looks a lot like a drywood termite swarmer (IRONIC), but a bug would not show up like this unless it was huge---not to mention, dry wood termites don't start their swarming season until September. I was using my IPHONE 5 to take the pictures. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Denver -- A man in, Colorado videotaped a fast-moving UFO several times during November 2012. He sent the video to local news channel FOX 31 who sent their own camera crew to attempt to videotape the UFO, which had been appearing at the same location and time of day. The FOX 31 cameras did succeed in capturing the object on November 8, 2012. Thanks to Frank Chille http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8X6zquGFnk
MIAMI -- My friend looked up at the sky this morning on May 15, 2013, and noticed the sun had a perfectly circular rainbow around it.
He captured it on a digital camera and noticed in the picture the presence of a small white orb just to the right of the sun. It is a clear photo that should be examined further.
Thanks to MUFON CMS
Illinois Rectangle and Orbs
URBANA – The witness phoned me and we talked for an hour. She states, “It was January 2002, on a cold, crisp clear night while I was in Grad School at the University of Illinois and was walking my dogs with a friend. We got to the south side of my building and saw five objects traveling northeast in a group in various patterns. They moved smoothly and silently. They started firing what looked like red laser beams straight out in front of them, straight down, and diagonally downward. The beams seemed to disintegrate after a bit.“
On the second pass, the last and fifth object was very low and the size of a football stadium! It was immense and passed directly over us with a barely audible hum heading northeast. It was a large rectangle with tapered corners at the front (see my sketch). The bottom was grey steel material. It had intricate grooves, nooks and crannies. It looked extremely sophisticated with a round hatch door in the middle of the bottom surrounded by multicolor lights. It was like the Gravitron Amusement Park Ride. As it passed over us, the hatch opened and an extremely bright white light flashed on and started strobbing, as if taking photographs.
My friend and numerous students on their balconies saw it. The rectangle circled to the left and it passed us again. I felt terribly frightened, and was surprised there was no news coverage
I called the Champaign airport control tower and Rantoul Air Force Base who said they saw nothing. I called my friend who was Marine and commercial pilot who told me we do not have the technology for what I described, and it would not have been silent. I’m a devout Christian, and I believe that God will protect me from whatever that was. My husband who is an engineer believes me and we know it was not manmade. I find it fascinating and terrifying. Thanks to MUFON CMS
JOLIET – My roommate and I were getting ready for bed at 1:29 AM, my roommate called me over to the window and we saw a orange light shaped like orbs moving north on May 12, 2013. It stopped near our house high in the sky but still large enough to see. It stopped above our neighborhood and split into five similar balls in a triangle formation. We then got his brother and went outside as the orbs rotated to face east and then moved off into the distance and out of sight. We all were a little shaken by what we saw but none of us were freaking out. We then contacted a friend who lived close by and he saw the same exact thing and was able to get a picture. Thanks to MUFON CMS
MADISON -- I saw what looked like the moon but it was reddish orange and the moon was on the other side of me on May 13, 2013. It reminded me of the sun setting two hours before and had the shape of a crescent moon. I went inside to plug in my camera and when I came back out I couldn’t see it. One minute later my son saw it again that looked like a black full circle on the inside and orange on the outer ring looking like an eclipse.
I was able to get a few pictures before my camera died while it looked like a crescent moon but I wasn’t able to get one of the full circle. I lost sight of it has it dropped down like the sun does at sunset. I am often taking shots of the stars and moon but I haven’t and clue what it was that I and my 13 year old son seen. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Massachusetts Unknown Aircraft
QUINCY (CBS) – A mystery in Quincy continues to deepen: Who is flying around the city from dusk to dawn, for the past ten days or so? “It’s frightening, not just weird, but frightening,” said one resident of the Wollaston section. Every night for nearly the last two weeks, residents have spotted a low-flying aircraft doing loops over the city. WBZ has learned the FAA knows what’s going on, but the agency isn’t telling. “I mean it is strange. I don’t know if they’re looking for somebody, I have no idea,” one resident told WBZ. It’s not the state or local police doing the flying, and the FAA is giving out little information, even to city officials. “It’s frustrating, it really is,” says City Councilor Brian Palmucci. I asked, ‘Is it a law enforcement flight? Can we tell people that?’ He said, ‘I can’t tell you.’” Thanks to Claude DiDomenica* http://secretaryofinnovation.com/ Note: These are Possible Homeland Security Flights.
Michigan Jets Chase a Strange Object
On May 8, 2013, my wife and I stepped on our south facing deck when my wife said, “Is that a satellite?” Pointing to a bright star in between small round clouds, I said no but looked straight up and in between the clouds there were three small clusters of lights in a triangle shape. My first thought was that it was three jets in a real tight formation. I said they must be military. The lights were a dim red, not blinking or anything. I couldn't tell the speed as the little round clouds covered the lights at 9:47 Pm. For the five seconds I observed the lights, they didn't appear to be moving very fast and heading north. While I was looking straight up and my wife said, “Look northeast.”
Out of the clouds came a bright solid light heading southeast fast! I looked up over the house to see white blinking lights of two jets that were in pursuit of the object. The object flew out of sight to the southeast while the jets followed. The time was May 8, 2013. I called The National UFO Reporting Center and TV 7@4 News but no one else had called. NOTE: The above image is a rendering. Ken Pfeifer MUFON NJ www.worldufophotos.org
Slater – I’m at home and can see the changing shapes of lights in the sky ever since March 28, 2013. The small lights fly into larger lights and are hanging in the sky.
The small lights fly in straight jerky lines, swirling lines, shooting off and coming back, and taking different shapes and flying from one large "light" to another large "light". The image is typical. Thanks to MUFON CMS
New Jersey Ball of Fire
EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP -- I noticed an object flying above the Atlantic City Expressway that I realized was too close to be a star on May 9, 2013. It was a very bright yellow and light was emanating from it. I quickly turned to my sister and said "What in the world is that?" She mentioned that she had seen one before a few winters ago. By this time the kids are looking out the window and they are beginning to panic.
After looking at the object for a few seconds, it shot out a ball of fire that left a trail of light and gradually came to a complete stop below the main ball of light. When the fireball stopped it completely changed to a yellow color just like the first craft, after a few seconds, both balls of light completely disappeared. We were shocked and noticed how fuzzy the radio had gotten. After a few seconds the radio station we were listening to was back to normal.
Earlier in the day we saw military drones flying in the area for four hours and two military cargo planes and jet fighters. Thanks to MUFON CMS
New York Roller Coaster Light
BAYPORT -- I was indoors on April 6, 2013, when I heard my older sister calling me frantically, “Look A UFO!” (I am 61 and my sister is 63). When I got outside I was looking at a roller coaster ride up in the sky about 50 feet above the distant treeline. A roller coaster ride though has a beginning and an end which I couldn’t see. When this roller coaster just kept traveling, I thought - wait a minute, that’s not possible. I realized something was wrong.
The objects were reddish orange balls and seemed to be in groups of 4-6 connected in groups that were part of a train that undulate up and down. They emitted a glow like trail from each of the group of balls.
They were going up and down, side-ways and moving in a direction - very much like a roller coaster would, except much more exaggerated as they got closer, or moved in a direction. They were coming from the South shore. This train of roller coaster lights moved slightly west, towards us. I ran to get a digital camera, and started to take photos. They seemed to slow down and spread apart always moving but some of the lights froze as I took pictures. They regrouped after a few seconds and flew north,- until the lights seemed to fade out.
They were about 100 feet altitude about a mile away. We saw commercial jets that flew slower and looked primitive compared to how these other objects traveled. I was very nervous and took three photos and called 911 and I was instructed to call some government agency that dealt with reports of terrestrial air plane problems. Thanks to MUFON CMS
North Carolina Triangle
New Hanover County -- Jim Sutton writes, “This was taken by and sent to me by a friend Jack Smith in New Hanover County.
"Jim says, “I got this about 3:50 PM this afternoon on May 12. 2013"
Thanks to Jim Sutton
Forest Grove – On May 6, 2013, about 9:15 pm, I was taking an evening walk after sundown when I noticed a slowly moving light in the sky above the northwest horizon. At first I thought it was the headlight of a private aircraft at a few thousand feet altitude, but it had a strange color. After a minute or so, I realized it had no red or green nav lights, nor any flashing lights; just a bright steady coppery colored light. It was close to the color of a sodium vapor street light similar in size to Venus but much brighter. It traveled in a steady, straight line to the southeast. There was no sound that I could hear.
Once it passed overhead the light became somewhat flicking but of the same color and intensity and disappeared behind some trees. The event lasted five minutes from when I first observed it.
I am inclined to think it may have been a rocket, or a spacecraft re-entering the atmosphere but I checked the news and web sites and found nothing. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Texas Triangle Pattern
North Richland Hill -- UFO/orbs/triangle formation witnessed hovering for a period of over an hour on May 4, 2013. After hearing a loud boom I rushed outside to investigate.
Not claiming boom was related, but very ironic timing if it’s not related directly in my line of vision after walking out front was the UFO, essentially commanding my attention.
I have had reoccurring dreams for many years about seeing lights in the sky from the same vantage point, so that helped to command my attention.
The more I observed it, and the more others around me observed it, it became quickly apparent that it was not an aircraft. A couple days later that I discovered the triangle pattern, and coordinated maneuver while editing the footage. That was when the full truth finally sunk in. I have at least five witnesses from three vantage points of video footage to back me up. My wife and I even viewed the object through binoculars and clearly saw the strange light patterns through the binoculars as well. Even while witnessing these objects in person, I didn’t fully see or comprehend the multiple objects in formation. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Sugar Land -- Took photo of severe storm. Nothing was visible to the eye. Didn’t notice "lights" until later when looking at picture. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Suffolk -- Taking photographs of a cloudy sky I captured this anomaly on May 12, 2013.
I did not notice the object while taking the photo.
Thanks to MUFON CMS
We were walking through the woods at night on May 12, 2013, looking in the sky and our friend pointed it out an alien UFO or something. It was a black triangle shaped object and in the corner of all three edges of the triangle was a bright white light. It suddenly appeared literally out of nowhere and then drifted to the side before it stopped in mid flight and started to hover.
Then its three triangular lights changed to one single bright white light and disappeared. We were so scared because we were in the middle of the woods and we started freaking out and were terrified. It just disappeared right in front of us! Thanks to MUFON CMS
Burlington -- On May 4, 2013 around 9:35 PM my husband went out to our car and immediately ran into the house screaming my name. When I got outside I saw almost directly over our home bright orangish orbs. I watched for a minute and realized they were not Chinese lanterns. But these “orbs,” were following one another in a horizontal line. After seeing three groups of four, the last group had an orb that stopped mid air and went another direction. After it left the pack it stopped again, dropped and disappeared from the sky.
Some neighbors were having an outdoor BBQ and were screaming out asking: “What was that?” We got into our car and attempted to follow the orbs but they shot away and disappeared. Thanks to MUFON CMS

MATERIAL – I already sent this photograph to you showing strange objects.
My name is Marcela. The photograph shows two sets of lights with a triangle of lights at the top.
Thanks to Maqui Q [ firstname.lastname@example.org]
Launceston – The witness reports seeing a long grey metallic cylinder shaped UFO that is rounded at both ends with even spaced things on side, like large rivets. These could be windows or portholes. The hovering cylinder was over head facing west at about 2,000 feet high on a bright sunny day on January 10, 1954. With the earth revolving to the east it was slowly moving west.
When my father came in for lunch I said, “What is that?”
He looked up and said, “I don’t know.” I have always wondered what it was and after lunch it was not there. I was about six years old then. Thanks to MUFON CMS
DARLINGTON, PERTH – Rob Hartland writes, “This website was created to share images of unusual craft (UFOs) that I have been photographing in the day-time sky over our house in Darlington in the Perth Hills of Western Australia since early November 2012.” We don’t see these craft with the naked eye but detect them on the digital images when viewing and enlarging them on a computer screen. I use a compact digital camera, the Sony Cybershot DSC-RX100, which has a 20 megapixel / 1 inch CMOS sensor to take high resolution images which are later enhanced using a photo-enhancing program like Adobe Photoshop.
These craft are fast-moving and fly at fairly high altitude as I usually focus the camera on the edges of mid- to high-altitude clouds. I usually take a series of 20 to 30 photos on continuous shooting mode with a fraction of a second between each photo. When captured, most of the times these craft are present in only one and occasionally two of the series of 20 images. I usually take about 300 images at a time, especially when there are wispy high-altitude clouds. On some days there may be craft present in more than 5% of the photos, although many are too small for enhancing so I only look for the really good ones.
The big question is who is flying these craft? In some images it almost looks like you can see occupants. Thanks to Rob Hartland www.whispyclouds.net
Toronto -- On May 8, 2013, at 7:45 pm, the plane West Jet flight 629 was descending to Toronto Pearson Airport for landing, and traveling at 361 mph and 5500 feet according to the information/entertainment display screen behind the seat.
I was looking out the window and saw an object that flew from the front to the back of the aircraft. I couldn't tell if the object was stationary or moving. A boy about 7 years old sat behind me was also looking out the window and asked, "What is that?"
The object was in clear view a 1000 feet below the right side of the plane. It was square, had no wings, beige in color, and relatively big. By comparing the object with the jet engine view, the cross section of the object is about 10% of the jet engine air intake diameter. The whole event lasted for a second. It was an amazing sighting and a second seemed quite a long time. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Montreal -- I was driving along Champlain Boulevard in LaSalle and noticed a plane in the sky with another object beneath it on May 7, 2013. My first thought was that it was a helicopter, but it was really going fast. The plane was flying at 45-50 degrees above the object was like 25-30 degrees above the horizon. This object descended really fast like it just dropped, to about 10 degrees above the horizon and flew at a really fast clip to the north. I watched it for about three minutes before it disappeared. I kept thinking that I don't recall planes flying that low at that speed over a city. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Residents of Argentina and Chile looked into the sky last night and saw this huge group of lights in the sky.
Was it an alien space craft or perhaps a group of well controlled meteorites?

New Zealand Strange lights spotted
CHRISTCHURCH -- Published May 12, 2013 by Shahra Walsh. The release of "wish lanterns" at a birthday celebration for a cancer sufferer may explain "strange" lights seen in the skies last night. The Chinese Lanterns were released in Fendalton for Danelle Wakefield who has a rare shoulder cancer .
A witness saw "strange lights" over Bryndwr last night and states. "My husband and I were leaving our property on Aorangi Road at 8 pm when we saw strange lights in the southern sky. When I first looked they appeared to be fireworks, however they were not as they remained bright orange in color and in a formation of 12 lights moving at the same rate," she said. The pair saw the lights head north in two groups.
"We turned the car engine off and stood on the road looking at them as they moved slowly, steadily and silently.”One of the lights trailed behind the rest and moved faster than the others horizontally in an easterly direction."
The couple took a video of the lights on their mobile phone and say the lights appeared to travel just above the clouds. "As they passed overhead their orange glow slowly dimmed and they went to a grey color and could be seen to be circular in shape. There were no flashing wing tip lights to indicate an aircraft." Katie Ferguson and her flat mate also saw the lights. "He saw 12 lights [and] yelled out. I raced out to look and I could see six orange lights hovering in the same place. "They were in two groups of three, then they distanced themselves from another and moved rapidly away," she said.
Nathan Hanna said the lights traveled north against the easterly breeze. One even appeared to move independently in an opposite direction at one point. "I can't say what the UFOs were, but can safely say they weren't lanterns," he said.
Shropshire -- Darren Perks writes, “I wanted to share this video I took in Shropshire at the end of April 2013, so that you could share it with your readers of the files.” In the video a star like object moves quickly from the top of screen to the bottom through a series of stars.
Please see the video here on my YouTube: http://youtu.be/uM_y3hA5UTI
It is highly unusual for satellites to behave in this way although I'm not ruling them out. But they are unidentified as they were too high for any conventional or military aircraft. There were moving in space and the digital night vision equipment I was using was easily able to pick them up and track them. I film allot of things like this in the skies above the UK and this is just one example. Hope you can use it and thanks for your time. 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.
