LUMINOUS UFOs SIGHTED IN LUDLOW, SHROPSHIRE, UK
On Sunday, October 23, 2005, at 8:45 p.m.,
eyewitness Sharon F. was "looking at Clee Hill from
Ludlow," Shropshire, UK when she and her companions "saw
a long line of colour-changing lights above Clee Hill.
As the frame of reference, Clee Hill is about 600 meters
(1,980 feet), and the objects appeared to be about 200
feet above" the summit.
"We watched it for ten minutes. Then we decided to
drive two minutes away to get binoculars for a better
view. On returning, the objects had disappeared.
Nothing was vicible in the sky, as there was complete low
Sharon described the lights as "a long line of
lights visible below the cloud level, changing colour,
these appeared to be red, blue, green and orange."
"I was very interested to hear that somebody nearby
had had a sighting within two days of this." Sharon
added, noting that the Shropshire Star had reported a UFO
in the vicinity of the motorway A5 on October 22, 2005.

LARGE LIVESTOCK TANK MYSTERIOUSLY DRAINED OF WATER
"In the early morning hours of (Monday) October 31,
2005," approximately "70,000 liters of water were found
to be missing from a tank habitually employed to provide
livestock with water." The bizarre incident took place
on a ranch located 15 kilometers (9 miles) south of
Parera in central Argentina's La Pampa province, just off
Provincial Route 9.
According to ufologist Scott Corrales, "One of the
most startling aspects of the 2002 cattle mutilation wave
in Argentina was the disappearance of tremendous amounts
of water from large cisterns known as 'tanques
australianos' (literally, 'Australian tanks'-S.C.) in
Argentina's cattle ranching communities. Entire swimming
pools were drained empty in Santa Rosa, Argentina at the
"Miguel Garrone, who leases the La Cabana ranch,
says the tank was filled to the maximum on Saturday
evening," October 29, 2005, "and was found completely
empty in the early morning hours of Monday," October 31,
"No signs of breakage or filtration were found, not
signs of moisture in the perimeter that could provide an
answer to such a strange phenomenon."
"The livestock rancher indicated his astonishment,
stressing that this is not the first time that such an
event has occurred in the area."
"It is worth noting that on July 2, 2006, on a ranch
belonging to Adolfo Ziegenfhus, some 4 kilometers (1.3
miles) from Quetrequen and 12 kilometers (7 miles) from
Parera, another 70,000 liters of water vanished in a
similar fashion-mysteriously and at night-without any
trace ever being detected, not the existence of a leak or
filtration that would justify the missing water ever
being found." (Muchas gracias a Scott Corrales y Raul

UNUSUAL FIREBALL SEEN IN RICHMOND, VIRGINIA
On Monday, October 31, 2005, at 9:30 p.m., Martha
Jones was outdoors in Richmond, the state capital of
Virginia, when she spotted an unusual object in the night
"It approached from the west and was headed east,"
Martha reported, "It was a very low fireball with a
shrewoosh sound. It was yellow and orange in color,
circular at the head with a long flakey tail. I'd say it
was about a couple of thousand feet up and flying at
about 150 miles per hour. It scared the (deleted) out of

OVAL UFO SPOTTED IN MAMMOTH SPRING, ARKANSAS
On Saturday, October 29, 2005, at 7:35 p.m., the
eyewitness, Mrs. McNeely, was at her home in Mammoth
Spring, Arkansas, she reported, "when my husband called
me onto our front deck to see a 'bright light in the
sky.' Our horses were in the front pasture and seemed
"The light was extremely bright, oval to round, and
stationary. There were no clouds in the sky this
evening, and few stars, none bright. No detectable wind
as the tree branches were not moving."
"The light was a fair distance away, at least three
of four miles (5 to 6 kilometers). The object appeared
to move closer, then away-remaining stationary for 15 to
20 minute intervals between shifts in position. The
object did not appear to be a plane, helicopter or any
other form aircraft familiar to us."
"The last time we stepped outside to observe the
object was after midnight, when it disappeared
completely. It just flicked out of sight." (Email Form
ORANGE-WHITE UFO SIGHTED OVER LAKE IN JACKSON, MICHIGAN
On Wednesday, November 2, 2005, at 8 p.m.,
eyewitness Kevin Fisher spotted a mysterious "bright
white and orange light in the sky either zipping or
staying still. It either went behind the tree line or
Kevin was at Gilletes Lake in Jackson, Michigan when
he spotted the UFO on the west side of the lake. "It was
a white orange color. I have been seeing them for the
past year. I think one night when I was at the warehouse
in Parma last year, a UFO came over the hill and it was
white, then turned orange, and then it hit me with a

witnesses to look at it. Then it took off, but some of
the witnesses did see it. I've had multiple sightings
during the past few years." (Email /Form Report)
NUMEROUS LARGE FIREBALLS SEEN OVER BERLIN
"Numerous sightings of large fireballs over Germany
this week have led to an upsurge in reports of UFOs, but
scientists believe the cause is a bizarre annual meteor
"Many people in Germany have noticed the fireballs,
said Werner Walter, an amateur astronomer in Mannheim who
runs a Web site on unexplained astronomical phenomena,
with a hotline for reports of unidentified flying
"'The last reported sighting was yesterday
(Thursday, November 3, 2005) at 7:30 p.m. in a corridor
along the border with the Netherlands,'" Walter reported.
"'This week, we have had at least 15 emails and
phone calls from people reporting fireballs,' he said,
'Some people said it looks like something out of a
science fiction film.'"
"In addition to a possible meteor shower, Walter
said amateur and professional astronomers were
considering that the blitz was the result of a 'falling
satellite or space junk.'"
"NASA's science Web site mentions reports of recent
fireball sightings in the United States, Canada, the
Netherlands, Northern Ireland and Japan."
"Walter described them as 'super-large, colored
fireballs that shoot with the speed of lightning through
"However, the NASA Web site quotes meteor expert
David Asher from the Armagh Observatory in Northern
Ireland as saying that people 'are probably seeing the
Taurid meteor shower.'"
"Taurids are meteors that shoot out of the
constellation Taurus." The shower peaks during late
October and early November each year. (See the
Suddeutsche Zeitung for November 4, 2005, "Fireballs
spark talk of UFOs.")
APPARITION OF JESUS APPEARS ON A WALNUT WARDROBE
Thousands of pilgrims are flocking to an upstairs
apartment in Romania to view what hundreds are calling a
miraculous image of Jesus Christ and two of his Apostles.
"Valeriu Junie, 66, of Drobeta Turnu Severin" in
Romania "says he first noticed the images about a year
ago, just before Christmas (2004)." He claims "the images
of Jesus and two disciples have appeared on their
wardrobe (upright walnut chest-J.T.)"
""He said, 'It all started one night when I was
watching TV and noticed some shadows on our wardrobe. I
turned on the light and saw the image of Jesus in the
middle and those of Saint Peter and Saint Paul on the
"'I didn't say a word to anyone for a few weeks, but
then the images started to become clearer everyday. I
decided to call the priests and, since then, lot of
people come to my house to see the miracle.'"
"The wardrobe is made of walnut and is nearly 50
years old. Valeriu's wife, Geta, 72, got it as a dowry
on her wedding day from her parents."
"Local priest Vasile Nuhaiu said, 'I was shocked by
what I saw there. There were three shadows on that
wardrobe with the face of Jesus Christ in the center.'"
"'It is a miracle when Saints reveal themselves to
us mortals, and I crossed myself and started to pray. I
told the two old people (Valeriu and Geta-J.T.) that they
should fast and pray to those two holy images.'" (See
Ananova for November 1, 2005, "Pilgrims flock to see
Jesus on wardrobe." Many thanks to Mary Lou Jones-Drown

ASSAILANT GOES ON RAMPAGE IN LAFAYETTE PARK
The Fayette Factor erupted in a big way in
Washington D.C. last week.
"An assailant stabbed three people and accosted a
fourth in Lafayette Park across from the White House" on
Tuesday, November 1, 2005. The suspect was taken into
custody, according to a spokesman for the Secret Service.
"The three who were stabbed were hospitalized with
injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening,
Secret Service spokesman Tom Mazur said. He said the
name of the assailant was not being released."
"'It was a random attack,' because the victims did
not appear to be associated with the man who attacked
them, Mazur said.
"Back in the days when Lafayette Park was known as
Lafayette Square, it was also called 'Tragedy Square'
because of all the strange deaths associated with it,"
UFO Roundup editor Joseph Trainor commented. "For
example, Lincoln's Secretary of State William Seward was
nearly stabbed to death by one of the Booth conspirators
in April of 1865. Seward was attacked in the front
hallway of his residence, which then faced Lafayette
"The Fayette Factor phenomena appear to be moving
away from the unexplained fires of the past two years and
into violent assaults. This is not an encouraging
trend." (See the New York Daily News for November 2,
2005, "Man goes on stab spree near White House," page 8.)
THE GHOST ALWAYS RINGS TWICE
"Buyer beware, and be very, very afraid. Haunted
houses are a seasonal treat for most, but, for some
Massachusetts homeowners, the phrase aptly describes
their very own residence."
"Christopher Balzano, a modern-day ghost hunter,
says he has investigated numerous houses in the Boston
area and has come away with some undeniable proof of
"Francis Donovan of Medway," Mass. "for instance has
been sharing his home for the last 58 years with the late
Rebecca 'Grammy' Garside."
"Garside took up residence at the home at 19
Winthrop Street" in Medway, Mass. "during the 1850s, when
her family bought a neighboring linen factory, and she
remained there until her death. During her final years,
Garside was bedridden and relied on a small bell to alert
family she needed a drink of water or other assistance."
"And, apparently, Garside is still ringing the
"'The first time we thought it was a telephone and
it wasn't. The second time, we had dinner guests over
and they asked, 'Why don't you answer your telephone?''
Donovan, 88, recalled."
"Donovan eventually learned about the bell in 1960
from one of Garside's grandsons."
"'Grammy Garside must still be around ringing it.
We hear it sometimes frequently, sometimes infrequently.
It's Grammy Garside telling us she's still around,' said
Donovan." (See the Boston Herald for October 30, 2005,
"Sur-real estate," page 3.)
MYSTERY BOOM IN UPSTATE NEW YORK
"What residents felt in Wayne County," New York
state "on Monday night," October 31, 2005, "was an
earthquake, after all."
"The U.S. Geological Survey confirms that a micro-
earthquake measuring 2.6" on the Richter scale "occurred
Monday night, just before 7 p.m. in the town of Ontario,
One resident, "Joan Sharstene, felt her house shake.

"The last earthquake in New York state was a micro-
quake registering 2.5 on the Richter scale near
Plattsburgh, N.Y. on May 31, 2005."
"The largest earthquake ever recorded in New York
was a 5.8" on the Richter scale that occurred "in
Massena, N.Y. in 1944." (See the Rochester, N.Y.
Democrat and Chronicle for November 1, 2005, "Wayne
County feels an earthquake." Many thanks to Gwendolyne

break up the fight but ended up pushing a sheriff's
deputy, authorities said. Gillam, 37, was charged with
disorderly intoxication and battery on an officer. He
was released on $753 bail."
"Griffin, 26, was charged with disorderly
intoxication and resisting arrest without violence. He
pleaded no contest Monday," October 31, 2005, "and was
ordered to pay court costs."
"Not that deputies didn't appreciate his outfit."
"'It was the funniest, if not the most original
costume I've ever seen,' Deputy Glenn Ward said." (See

FLORIDA READER REPORTS ANOTHER
WEIRD ATLANTA DREAM
Back in July 2005, UFO Roundup received two eerie
reports from people in the southern USA who claimed to
have had dreams about the nuclear destruction of the city
of Atlanta, Georgia.
One family was so disturbed by this vision that they
sold their Georgia home and moved across the USA to

Janice wrote, "I found your Web site because I was
searching for nuclear dreams about Atlanta. Because two
nights ago (October 31, 2005) I had one."
"In the dream, I was traveling south on foot across
this river and, all of a sudden, I saw a huge mushroom
cloud to the south. I started to run back to the north."
"I thought it was really close and that I was toast.
But then I just knew that I was in Memphis (Tennessee),
and I went to hide in this concrete house under
"I also knew in the dream that the explosion was in
Atlanta (Georgia) and that it could be seen by five
"I also am an evangelical Christian, and I have had
a few dreams that have come to pass. I live in the
panhandle of Florida (near Pensacola-J.T.) so I probably
would not be affected by the blast."
"I don't know why God shared it with me."
"But it is too strange...and troubling."
(Editor's Comment: The curious thing about Janice's
report is that she had her dream two days before she read
about the July 2005 premonitions in UFO Roundup. When
August 1, 2005 rolled around, your editor breathed a sigh
of relief. I thought the danger period had passed.
Apparently, that's not the case. The threat of a nuclear
explosion in downtown Atlanta may still be in the future.
If any other readers have dreams or premonitions of this
sort...don't be shy. Send them in.)
