UFO Sightings Increase Worldwide
After a lull in December and January, UFO reports have
been increasing dramatically, according to George
Filer's UFO report, Filer's Files.
But are UFOs real? The US Air Force says they can all
be explained away. The media generally ignores them
or publishes silly season stories about them. The
skeptical community claims that no professional
observer has ever had an unambiguous UFO sighting.
However, astronauts like Gordon Cooper, NASA
engineers of the stature of the late Paul Hill and many
other skilled professionals have seen UFOs and believe
that they are a genuine unknown. In fact, the
government's refusal to acknowledge them is a
coverup, and the media's excessive skepticism
represents a major failure of the press as an
A U.S. Air Force Crew Chief reports that he and his
family of 4 saw a disc-shaped UFO outside their house
at 8:30 p.m. on both February 21st and 22nd. As an
Air Force officer, this man is a trained observer, so
when he first saw a bright light at the top of a
mountain near his home, he assumed it was a plane
heading for the airport, which is 35 miles away. But
when the lights were still in the same position twenty
minutes later, he knew something unusual was out
there, so he looked through his binoculars at the craft,
which was now flying towards his home.
Close up, the object appeared to be a disc with 4
triangular- shaped panels or windows, arranged in an
X-pattern. The 2 lower panels emitted light and the
craft seemed to be made of a grayish metal. The
officer reported he had never seen a craft like it. It
was sweeping its bright lights along the side of the
mountain, as if searching for something, and the
glowing red lights appeared to emit flares at times. Like
most UFOs, it had no sound.
In Chile, a UFO was also seen by trained pilots. Pilots
flying two jetliners spotted a giant silver UFO hovering
at an altitude of 60,000 feet for half an hour around 11
a.m. on February 16. Air traffic controllers were able to
follow the craft's movements from accounts given by
the pilots of the two jets.
According to the newspaper La Estrella del Loa, the
craft was "flattened and elongated, like two plates
facing each other"-a classic UFO description. Nelson
Lope, manager of the Cerro Moreno airport said it was
not a weather balloon and confirmed that the UFO was
tracked by radar operators.
George Filer notes "It is refreshing to see that UFOs
are freely reported by the news media, airline crews
and radar in Chile. Despite frequent sightings in the
U.S., everyone involved seems afraid to report these
incidents." We couldn't agree more!
There have been multiple sightings in the U.K.
recently. In Leicester on January 24, a witness and his
wife saw what at first appeared to be some sort of
sparkling object, which moved in a jerky path, unlike
an airplane. They soon realized it was a UFO.
In Derbyshire, the Matlock Mercury Newspaper
reported on February 15 that close encounters
continued in that area. One man and his wife saw a
dome-shaped craft on February 3rd. There have been
many sightings in Tansley, where a couple saw a large
blue light with an orange tail shoot across the night
sky. At first they thought it was a plane crashing.
Sweden has been the sight of UFO activity as well. A
12- year-old, along with his parents and other adults,
saw a cigar- shaped UFO move slowly and silently
across the sky. About every 10 seconds it lit up like a
light bulb, and at other times, it was silver-colored.
Contrary to the way the situation appears in the US
media, UFO reports from credible witnesses are a
commonplace occurrence in this country and around
the world. What is uncommon--indeed,
extraordinary--is that this most important of all
observable phenomena is completely and totally
ignored by government, science and the media.
