      HBCC UFO Research Recently Reported Sightings


      Victoria, B. C. - Swan Lake Nature Sanctuary

      Date: May ?
      Time: Evening

      My name is (removed), about one month ago, I was walking along the Swan Lake Nature Sanctuary on my way home from a friends when all the sudden I heard this high pitched humming noised that was "wavy" seeming to go louder and then quieter over and over again.

      I looked above my head where it was coming from and saw the most shocking thing I have ever seen.

      Once I saw it, I knew it was not a plane, or any normal flying object.

      When I saw it, my heart just sank, and I couldn't move.
      It was moving towards the north (I believe) moving at a fast pace.

      I tried to draw a picture of what I saw, take a look.

      Ever since that happened, I have been watching the sky nearly every night, because it has made me really interested in UFO's.

      I know what I saw was real.

      The smaller image of the UFO under the bigger one is about the size it was when I saw it (due to how high it was in the sky)

      Additional Information Below:

      No problem, I can't really remember about the weather, it was a clear sky with a few clouds.

      I saw it on a Sunday, not sure which date though, at about... 4:00 p.m. ish?

      I did not notice any air planes in the sky at the time.

      I get confused about West, North, and all that, but from where I was standing, it was flying from the direction of the Common Wealth Recreation Centre to Downtown Victoria.

      The shape that I saw, I drew in Microsoft Paint, and sent it to you when I sent you my first email.
      The color was a greyish white, like a normal commercial aircraft, with two dark colored (black?) lines going down the side.

      I'm not sure if the lines were flat against the UFO, or going outwards. They may have been windows? or something dark enough for me to see from where I was.

      I'd have to say the UFO was about... 500 feet maybe??? I don't know that much about how high things are... but to compare the height to something else, it was about the height that normal, personally owned air planes are flown.

      I was in Swan Lake, on the trail. No, no airport are around the area, just a lake, and fields.

      I'm sorry I'm not that helpful, thank you for taking an interest in my sighting.

      Thank you to the person for this report.

      Newcastle, England - Cylinder

      Date: June 7, 2004
      Time: Daytime

      My name is (removed), and I live in Newcastle, England. I was just passing the time on the computer, when I saw the photo of the cylinder. About two weeks ago, I saw the same thing . At first it was miles up in the sky, it was just like a dot, but it came down, and I watched it through binoculars. It was the same shape but a bit thinner, same colour, and the line mentioned was about a third down from the top.It was vertical all the time, and seemed to drift slowly. I lost sight of it after 2 or 3 minutes.

      Additional Information Below:

      I saw the cylinder about a week before I sent you the message. The weather was warm and sunny with fluffy white clouds, I kept losing sight of it against them. Its hard to judge the height, at first it was like a dot, then it came down to below the height of the fluffy clouds. Whatever height fluffy clouds are on a summers day, that's the height it was. I am guessing if the object was in the room I was in, it would have been between 4 and 6 feet in length, and when it was at its lowest point it was about the same length as my outstretched thumbnail. it had a drifting movement, but always upright.I didn't see any planes around. There were no sudden movements, the movement was constant but slow and smooth. This may have nothing to do with anything but I live near an airport and every few months we get planes of different descriptions flying round in huge circles for 4 or 5 hours at a time. What I mean is,1 plane flying round and round. Then an interval of a few months then a different type of plane doing the same thing.

      Thank you to the witness for the report.

      Avondale, Arizona - Estrella Lights

      Date: June 16, 2004
      Time: Evening

      Hello, I writing about the lights found in Avondale, Arizona on June 14th 2004. My girlfriend and I had witness these lights, a string of 17-20. On June 16th I got my video camera out and got some night shot video. 2 light then 4 a quick 5th one then back to 4 then 2 move slowly behind the Estrella Mountain leaving 2 ,one burns out then reappears above where it started. Any help would be wonderful.

      Brian, (removed) in Arizona, Sorry I have been writing these reports for a week now and really nobody's got back to me! You have been the first and the fastest, so I'll make you this offer I'll send you a copy not original of what I got. Please check it out for me, To tell you what's around here we live in Avondale which is to the west of Phoenix, to the west of me less than 2.8 miles is Goodyear airport, to the north of me about 15-20 miles is Luke Air Force Base. Now the base already made a statement of not dropping any flares on that day. You will hear on that news clip that the military have been trying to fly planes near them but the lights go out. On my video between me and the activity a plane with the flashing FAA light goes through the shot, about 34 through the tape. I never timed the whole event but its about 5-8 minutes. Write back so I can get an address to send this tape.
      Thank you to the witness for the report and being so kind as to send a copy of the tape to me.

      Toronto, Ontario - Meteors Caught On Film


      Date: June 26, 2004
      Time: 11:00 p.m.

      Well I was sitting outside the skyline of Toronto. It was a clear night, very calm. The time was about 10:45-11:00 p.m. June 26, 2004, when I looked to my west and saw a bright object coming at me and to my left, meaning it would pass me to the South a bit. This object was bright orange, with a greenish hue. It moved about 1/3 of what normal fireballs moved, and there were 4 pieces. I am a Storm Chaser from Southern California, and Storm Chase from SW USA, to Toronto, Canada every year. The end of my chase ended up in Toronto that night I witnessed this. Sparks came off these objects and disintegrated behind the main fireballs. Oh they were beautiful! This reminded me of the Columbia video I got from Northern California, near Bishop,CA when Columbia came in. I still have the video, never turned it in. Anyway the fireball got to it's highest point in the Southern Sky. I will say 70 degrees. I ran over to my car, and got my digital camera. I went back to the spot I first saw it in, and snapped this picture (in e-mail). At the time, only 2 fireballs were visible going to the East. The disappeared behind the horizon shortly after.

      Photo can be viewed at: http://www.hbccufo.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=1479

      Please respect the gentleman's copyright.

      I would like to thank the witness for the report and photo he took.

      Hamilton, Ontario - Meteor Round With Trail

      Date: June 26, 2004
      Time: 10:45 p.m.

      Number of witnesses: 1
      Number of objects: 3
      Shape of objects: Meteor/ round with trail.

      Full Description of event/sighting: Somewhat the same as another report I read here, I just wanted to see if anyone else has seen what I did. There were 3 objects , one in the middle was significantly bigger than the other 2, all 3 were traveling the same speed, did not change course , white round shapes that left a trail of white, it must have been some type of meteors, lasted for about 15 seconds, traveling north east, mostly east from Hamilton.

      Thank you to the witness for the report.

      Markham, Ontario Fire Ball

      Date: June 26, 2004
      Time: Between 10:45 and 11:00 p.m.,

      We were sitting outside Saturday night when we saw this comet like object in the sky with a huge tail. It seemed to have smaller objects aside of it and then it also got brighter and brighter, it moved fairly slow and seemed like when the shuttle Columbia had entered the atmosphere and disintegrated in the sky. After doing some research I found on www.spaceweather.com where someone else from Toronto had seen it and also captured a picture of it, just have a look, I was at the north in Markham and this thing was going from west to east.

      Additional Information Below:

      The time we witnessed this was approximately between 10:45 and 11:00 p.m., it had a long tail like a comet, this was huge, from my point of view with a very large house just about 75 feet from me it this would have been the same length of the roof of a large house, from one end to the other, it had one big ball of fire with one over top of it and bellow it which was smaller in size, and smaller objects with tail around it, the picture that is on that page only displays the balls of fire without the tail, I am wondering if this is because of the cameras that was used to capture this, as it went across the sky it also started to glow even more on the big fireball like if it was exploding, that is when I race into the house to grab my cameras but as I returned I could not see it anymore, because of the houses in the way, it was like a yellow color, gold like flames with lots of debris, I was also with 2 other people that witnessed this with me, from my point of view it seemed to be going from the west going east but then I would have to confirm this with my compass as maybe going a little south, I will verify this for you tomorrow to get a better coordinates, but I do believe that from where I was sitting it was going in the east direction, seemed like it was going right over lake Ontario. this was moving at a good speed probably 1/4 of the speed of a normal fireball, the sky was very clear also Saturday night June 26 2004,

      There must defiantly be more people that have seen this. it was too big to be missed.

      Thank you to the witness for the report.

      Phoenix, Arizona Lights

      Date: June 27, 2004
      Time: 1:40 p.m. and 2:40 p.m.

      Full Description of event/sighting: Since April 15th this year my wife and I (mainly myself) have seen white lights or orbs in the night sky. Appearing and disappearing as if lighting up and fizzing out. Most of the time they move in a straight line until I can't see them anymore or they just fizz out. Once in a while I see them hover but it's mostly a straight line. All of this is on video. They show up right before your eyes in all directions. It's not like they are only coming from one direction, it's any direction.


      These lights show up at any time. I have video from 9:00 p.m. till 5:00 a.m. on almost any given night. I have a new dog, a puppy, which seems to like to wake me up each night around 1:00 a.m. - 3:00 a.m. to do his business and that's how I got these on video. I was looking at the stars while laying on the chaise lounge when I noticed a brightly lit object traveling across the sky. I thought it was a satellite until another object looking exactly like the other one crossed its path. They eventually faded out but that's what peaked my interest and I started video taping anything that resembled what I saw. It's now June 27, 2004 and a lot has been captured on video.

      I accidentally caught a triangular formation of these lights but when it passes by the stars you can see through where you would expect to see a solid piece of the triangular shaped object. So that tells me they are not connected but just in formation. A week later after many routine evening sightings I was driving on the 101 loop heading East by the 56 th Street exit when I saw a white shaped object slowly moving East right in front of me. I started taking my camera with me now so I pulled over on the left side of the freeway and took some photos. The object hovered and moved slightly back and forth but was drifting mainly Southeast. About 15 minutes later I did some shopping at Safeway by Raintree and Frank Lloyd Wright and when I was just about to get in the car I saw another, but possibly the same object closer than before just floating
      around.

      So I took more pictures. Later that same night about 4 hours later my wife and I were leaving the Bamboo Club Restaurant at Desert Ridge (Tatum and Bell) when we both spotted the same looking object that I saw earlier that day but there were 2 of them. I left my camera at home because the batteries needed to be recharged so I couldn't take any pictures this time and I was furious. One of the objects seemed to wobble while the other one was stationary. We thought for a second that they might be balloons because at first we thought they were white but as we concentrated harder and one
      object was a bluish color and the other one was reddish in color. As we are observing these two objects, from the west comes this white weird looking object just cruising below the other objects heading East. I yelled for my wife to see it but it went by so fast that she couldn't catch it.

      That object looked as though several egg-shaped objects were tied together and it was tumbling in all directions. It never rose up in the air just went by really fast. Couldn't be balloons because the other objects would have went just as fast and in the same direction. So that night I went out in hoping to see these objects again, I didn't, but I did get the usual orbs on video like I usually do. But today June 27th, 2004 at 1:40 p.m. it came back and it was coming over my house. I grabbed the video camera and what I caught on video is the same thing Anthony Woods saw (story on Rense.com). When I first saw it, it looked to me like it was spinning and tumbling in all directions and the video reflects that. It came from the West and headed East. It looked like the object was heading in a straight path. I video taped it for a few minutes with some trees in front of it for reference and you can see that the object was moving up and down and side to side or just about any direction. Eventually it faded into the background of some clouds and I couldn't see it anymore. About 45 minutes later I went out back again. The object was back and I saw it hovering almost where I saw it last and video taped it again moving like it did before. It disappeared 5-10 minutes later and I am now waiting for something else to come my way. I am interested in getting a professional opinion on all my video so if there is anyone in Phoenix who can analyze this for me please contact me. Thank you for letting me share this unique experience with you.

      Thank you to the witness for the report.

      Calgary, Alberta - Lights Zig Zagging

      Date: June 27, 2004
      Time: 2:26 a.m.

      Number of witnesses: 1
      Number of objects: 4
      Shape of objects: ?

      Full Description of event/sighting: I finish watching Saving Private Ryan on CBC and it is like 2:00 a.m. in the morning. I am looking out my window and I see one very bright star. It is the only one in the sky, then I see a couple more come into focus. I watch the brightest one because it appears to be moving. I figure my mind is just playing tricks on me. But when I clearly see it start to move and zig zag through out the sky, I try to still think that my mind is playing tricks but when I see 4 or more of them moving and zig zagging through out the sky I know it is not my mind. So I watch them for a little bit and then see one shoot out of view. It looked like a shooting start but shot upward away from the earth and not downward toward the earth(like a shooting star would). I continue to watch them and then get scared and leave the room.

      Additional Information Below:
      It lasted for probably about a couple of minutes maybe 10 minutes is what i watched before one of them left. I don't know how long the actually event was I got scared and left after a while.

      It was little bits of cloud here and there.

      Yes but a very small trail.

      Yellow kind of orangey tint

      Well they came into view so they headed toward the earth. but i never got to see them leave. Except one left he looked like he just booked it out of here in the opposite direction. like he was in danger. and it looked like they were just observing things.

      No aircrafts.

      Thank you to the witness for the report.

      Toronto, Ontario - Two Wings No Body

      Date: June 27, 2004
      Time: 11:15 p.m.

      Number of witnesses: 1
      Number of objects: 1
      Shape of objects: 2 - Airplane wings W/O body.

      Full Description of event/sighting: I was on the roof top garden in my condo complex where I was having a cigarette. I was laying down on a pool side chair. It was a very clear night and the moon was out just to the southwest of me. I was specifically looking to see a shooting star when I caught a glimpse of a black/grey object in the night sky. It was difficult to see against the back drop but I am certain that there was an object moving. There are plenty of airplanes in my area but I know this wasn't one of them because it had no lights and there was no sound. It approached from the north and was heading south. I caught a glimpse of it at a 45 degree angle. Just to be sure, I got up and squinted my eyes to be sure. I only saw it for about 5 seconds however because of the backdrop it was really hard to see. It look like two airplane wings together without the body. Since I live close to an airport, I am sure the tower should have had it on their radar. If anyone knows how to get a hold of such information, please let me know.

      Additional Information below:

      Honestly I can't even make an educated guess as to the distance or speed. I'm going to say maybe 2000 ft up. It was so hard to see to begin with and I only saw it for 5 seconds or so. I was just trying to make sure that I was seeing something less guessing how far or high it was. I do not have a pet.

      There is Lester B. Pearson airport about 30 minutes northwest of me and Toronto Island Airport about 20 minutes south west of me. The object came from the north and was heading south. I don't think the object was very big. In that particular part of the night sky, there were not many stars and the object was 1 km ahead of me. It was not a jet liner or a Cessna because I see allot of those in my area and I know the sound of both. This object however made no sound. It did not make any maneuvers and it disappeared into the darkness over the lake.

      I hope this helps.


      Thank you to the witness for the report.

      HBCC UFO Research Recently Reported Sightings Clark AB Philippines - Sighting Of An Orange Disk Dates: From 1973 to 1976 - 1984 to 1988 I was stationed at
      Message 2 of 21 , Jul 14, 2004
        HBCC UFO Research Recently Reported Sightings



        Clark AB Philippines - Sighting Of An Orange Disk

        Dates: From 1973 to 1976 - 1984 to 1988

        I was stationed at Clark AB in the Philippines ( now closed) from 1973 to 1976 and again from 1984 to 1988. During the first period I mentioned, I worked in the Base Fuels Distribution Office and one night between 1130 and 1200 we had an incident happen that was very reminiscent of this article. We were responsible for refueling all aircraft at Clark on a 24/7 operation. As such, we would send out a truck between shifts and relieve those individuals that were refueling aircraft or receiving fuel into bulk storage for refueling at a later date. One of our storage points was known as the Hill Area, and it was about 10 miles from our main location. We received fuel there via a pipeline from Subic Naval Base ( Olongapo City) .

        During one particular night in late 75 or early 76, we sent a truck up to relieve the personnel who were receiving fuel at the Hill Area and bring them back down so they could go off shift. The type of truck we used for this purpose was a 2.5 ton general utility vehicle with a canvas top over the cargo area. Anyway, as assistant shift leader, I was dispatching trucks that night. When the truck arrived with the individuals going off shift, they were all visibly shaken by something. I asked what was wrong, and was told that they were followed about 1/2 way from the Hill Area by a glowing orange ball about 3 feet in diameter. This ball trailed the truck and would rise up above, then drop to just below the top of the canvas so that all in the truck could see it. At the 1/2 way point, it raised up above the canvas once again and disappeared.

        Now, you would think the story ended there but it didn't. When I returned to Clark the second time, I changed jobs and was responsible for training at the airlift wing stationed at Clark at the time. In each unit we had other training people known as training managers that were responsible for that squadron's training programs. Because of the nature of the job, everyone who was a training manager had originally been in another field. It happens that one of the squadron training managers and I were talking one day and I found out that he had been a security policeman also stationed at Clark during 1973 - 1976 . We started talking about old times and he asked me if I had heard of the UFO encounter at Clark. I thought that he was talking about the incident that I related above but found out that it he was aware of that one, but was talking about another incident that happened the same night. It seems that he was sitting on the desk and one of the Security Policemen on the flight line called in a report. He was in an area known as the "J " ramp which was directly in front of the Clark AB control tower. His sighting involved an orange disk directly over his position, approximately 75-100 feet in diameter. According to the individual relating the story to me, the disk sat there for a few seconds then shot straight up, disappearing almost immediately. The individual relating the story said that since this was a highly peculiar incident he then called the Security Police commander who asked if he had made an entry on the police blotter ( a logbook of incidents taking place on a shift) yet. He replied no, and the commander said not to and to forget that the incident ever happened. I heard nothing from any of our drivers myself that night because they were all occupied refueling aircraft at the far end of the parking area.

        Over the years I have thought about this incident allot, and I sure would like to talk to some other people who saw either craft. I imagine that especially those individuals working in the control tower or sitting at the ground control radar that night would have quite a story to tell.

        I would like to ask that any service men or women who were working at the Clark AB Philippines at the dates given in the story who have information about this incident would they please contact me. Not only would I like to know but the gentleman who is relating this story would like to hear from you also.

        I would like to thank this person for telling us this fascinating story.

        Camp Geiger, North Carolina 150 Marines Witness Strange Object

        Date: December 1985
        Time: 5:00 a.m.

        Number of witnesses: 150
        Number of objects: 1
        Shape of objects: Ellipsoid or Disk

        Full Description of event/sighting: Five platoons of young Marines were in formation in the chilly morning at Camp Geiger. We were all facing east and answering muster and getting ready to march to the chow hall, (which was about a mile away).

        From the south an object came in front of the five platoons. It was ellipsoid and it was about the size of a thimble, if you stretched your hand out in front of you face. As it raced along just above the tree tops (that were about 500 yards away) it left a trail of "sparks" that would dissipate quickly. In relation to the trees the object seemed to be about a mile away from the trees.

        When the object was almost in front of my platoon, (we were the 5th platoon to the extreme left of the five), it shot up at great velocity at a 45% angle. From the point it shot up a sphere of luminous gas, (or something) expanded to fill the entire eastern sky. All five platoons let out a collective "WHOHHHH". I'll never forget that. The Platoon Sgt. turned around and looked at it, and we all, "decided" (were told to say), it was a satellite experiment.

        The ball of gas was orange, and definitely was a sphere, because you could see the center was different from the edges. This thing had volume. In the middle of the sphere, I made out a shape that I've now come to recognize as a "key" from crop circle formations. There was actually the darker brownish orange thing in the orange sphere, coming from the top left edge and reaching down to the bottom right.

        Then I notice another sphere is coming out of the other one. A green sphere is duplicated and is slowly moving to the left of the original. This sphere is a pastel green and seems translucent and not as strong as the other sphere. But it is identical other than color.

        We are marching to "Chow" at this time and the ambient light from the morning is starting to effect the view of the spheres. When you march in the Marines you are supposed to keep your head and eyes to the front, but I got away with turning my head slightly and looking at the objects as best I could as we marched. By the time we got to the chow hall, the second sphere was right next to the other and the filled the pre-dawn sky to the east. Everybody waiting to get into the chow hall was talking about it.

        By the time we came out from chow, the spheres were not remarkable in the daylight. Basically, they looked like clouds and they had lost their shape. (Chem Spheres?)

        Four years later, I'm back in North Carolina at Camp Lejeune, (about 10 miles north of Geiger), and I get to my office one day, and everybody who lives off base and drives in was talking about a UFO they saw. Now the last unit I was in was ANGLICO. This stands for Air Naval Gun Liason Company. We were a special forces unit that supported other military branches SF with Naval guns and air cover. So the guys that were in ANGLICO that saw the UFO all could estimate size and speed very accurately.

        The men I worked with described the same thing I had seen four years earlier. But these guys were "Forward Observers" trained in identifying and estimating an aircraft and it's speed. They all estimated that that the initial speed of the thing was somewhere in the 1200-1400 mph range. The "shoot up" speed was estimated between 3000 and 5000 mph.

        Another guy said he left for work very early (4:00 a.m.), and lived near some soy bean fields. As he drove through the high way there was the faint glow of a full moon over the fields, He said he noticed a "shadow" over the fields and the highway he was on and he looked up. He told me he saw a large black disk shaped area that blocked out the moon and the stars as it passed. He estimated this object to be about 800-1000 yards wide, and flew about 2000 yards off the "deck". (as we called the ground).

        If anyone from either incident can support these sighting please come forward. That was amazing to see, and it was amazing to have the sighting duplicated four years later.

        There were also some guys who did a night time "Close Air Support" drill at Yuma Marine Air Base in Arizona who told me a great UFO Story. If any of you who actually experienced that sighting are reading this, please relay your story.

        Thanks Brian,

        I hope this helps with the US Military Base UFO research.

        Thank you to the person for sending in this very interesting report. I once again would like to request that other military folks or private contractors contact me if they or they know of a UFO over one of the military installations. Thank you, Brian.

        Lancaster City, Pennsylvania U.S.

        Date: Summer, 1998 or 1999
        Time: Mid afternoon

        Hey I read your article on Rense.com. I just wanted you to know that I saw a similar object, though it was about four years ago. I was on break at my job in my car and saw a cylinder type object floating in the air. It seemed to be spinning very slowly but hardly moved at all. I watched it for about half an hour. I thought it was a man on a parachute...but it was really high and stayed stationary! It was a very clear day so maybe it was a geo stationary satellite? never seen it since and never heard anything similar till now! Thanks...

        It took place at my job on my lunch break. I work in Lancaster City, Pennsylvania U.S. The sighting took place in 1998 or 1999 in the summer during mid afternoon. That is as good as I can get it, sorry. It seemed to be slowly rotating, like spinning a pencil on your table top, but very slowly. Something like one revolution per minute or so. It also seemed to stay in the same spot or moving too slowly to notice, but it seemed to be moving in a southward direction.

        It was cylindrical in shape, like a long can. It appeared to be white in color. It had to be big because it was so high up in the sky. At least as high as a Jetliner. Texture and sound, it could not be determined.

        No aircraft, other than commercial Jetliners doing normal flights. It took place in or over Lancaster City. There is an airport in Lancaster, but no where near the sighting. No military installations around here. It was in the air for a while. I watched for at least 30 minutes. I can't say I believe it was an alien space craft, but I can say that I don't know what it was. I know it wasn't an airplane, helicopter, or a hot air balloon. I thought at first it was a man coming down on a parachute because of it's height and shape and its very slow movement. But I never got close to the ground. 30 minutes and it hardly moved at all. It was a very clear day though. Could it have been a satellite ? Hope this helped.

        Thank you to the witness for the report.

        Beaver, Pennsylvania - Oblong, Wingless, Disk-Like Craft

        Date: December 15, 2000
        Time: 6:30 p.m.

        My 12/15/00 nighttime sighting:

        A large, intensely, bright, bluish-white strobing light flying north... Its speed seemed normal but it flew unusually low and close to my house ... only 200 feet away from me... As the strobe flashed, about once per second, it illuminated the craft's body... I could then, see that this craft was oblong, wingless, disk-like and of a dull, dark, brownish-gray color. There were also a few areas of very hazy, dimly lit, multi-colored light, of red and yellow-green, around the right side of the craft which, seemed like windows but with no apparent structure... or frame work... (*Note -- This dimly lit, multi-colored illumination, of red and yellow-green, around the side of the craft's body was something that I later described, on the AlienViews list, as resembling the luminous, multi-colors effect often seen on an oil slick)....The disk seemed to be about 15 feet wide... no noise... no other lights... the disk looked very black except for the small surface area being illuminated by its flashing strobe...

        The strobe (the white light) was located at the tip of a short, thin appendage.... (the appendage) was about three or four feet in length (and attached) along the center portion of the disk's side... the strobe light was always pointing towards the north...

        When the strobe (UFO) was at it closest (*the UFO was then below my eye level and hovering about 3 feet off the ground, directly behind my neighbor's garage) I could see this strobe's appendage wavering, back and forth, a few feet CW then, CCW, every three seconds or so... This slight wavering or gliding back and forth movement of the appendage sort of reminded me of the subtle wavering of a compass needle... This disk then, stopped and hovered (*Note -- I never saw this UFO flying upwards, towards its second hovering location) ... about 250 to 300 feet above ground and about 150 yards away...

        Thank you, Brian, for all of your good work in posting these many excellent UFO reports to the web! :-)

        Sincerely,

        Thank you to the witness for the wonderful report and drawing.

        Altus, Oklahoma Falling Object Changes Color

        Date: October 2001
        Time: Early morning

        Location of Sighting: 1 mile east of Hollis, Oklahoma
        Number of witnesses: 1
        Number of objects: 1
        Shape of objects: Like a bright Star.

        Full Description of event/sighting: I own a farm about 1300 acres, and one morning, very early, I was going to plow. On my way to the field I had a flat, rather than change it in the dark I told myself I would wait until evening and change it then. It was only about a mile to my tractor so I started walking. Always fascinated with the stars I watched the sky as I walked, suddenly I noticed what looked like two stars tumbling slowly, not quite making a complete circle, when all of a sudden they stopped and the star on the right took off to the left at an upward (approx 30 degree angle) trajectory until it faded. The speed was fantastic and when it did this its color changed to a bright blue with maybe a tinge of violet. Amazed I just stared at the same spot hoping the other light would move too. I actually stared at it for probably ten minutes before I realized it was just a star. The sighting was very clear, but I'm sure the object was a good three miles away at least. And the inclination was approx. 30 degrees in the southern sky. The way this thing changed its speed from hovering to taking off like a bullet was most amazing. It was exactly like a bright blue shooting star when it left, except that it went up.

        Thank you.

        Thank you to the witness for this interesting report.

        Brian,

        My name is (removed), I have some pictures that I would like you to look at. I have been taking pictures of the sky because of the contrail activity and weird cloud formations. I have taken well over 100 pictures of the sky on my way to work. I recently got a digital camera and as you know it gives you an opportunity to shoot a ton of pictures with the ability to download them on your computer for free. I was going over a set I took a few weeks back I came across something on one of the photo's. I did not see it with the naked eye because most of the time when I am taking pictures I just have the Camera pointed up in the sky and point it up in the air and snap away. Before you say bird or speck of dirt on camera look really close especially when I blew it up there is a field around it. None of the other 100 plus photo's have anything like this in any of them... I don't know what do you think.... Feel free to call or email me..

        Thank you to the person for sending along these pictures.

        Between Hereford and Hay-on-Wye, U.K.

        Date: July 3, 2004
        Time: Just past midnight.

        Friday, 03-07-2004. It was just past midnight. I was in a village between Hereford and Hay-on-Wye. In England, U.K very close to the welsh border. I noticed a light that wasn't hovering (like a helicopter) or moving (like a plane). So I got my binoculars and I couldn't believe my eye's so I woke my mum up. We both observed the strange 'lights' for 48 minutes. To the naked eye it was just a strange light that we could see half way between the horizon and the stars. But through the binoculars we could see many moving light's. They moved into different shapes and dimmed and brightened. I observed aircraft possibly observing the UFO. Did anyone else see anything?

        Thank you to the witness for their report.

        Redcliff, Alberta Triangle

        Date: July 8, 2004
        Time: Early morning, probably around oneish.

        Location of Sighting: Farm east of Medicine Hat.
        Number of witnesses: 2
        Number of objects: 1
        Shape of objects: Triangular.

        Full Description of event/sighting: My brother and I were sitting out on the back deck of my dad's old farmhouse. He recently passed away and we were at the farm cleaning the rest of his old stuff out so it could be auctioned off. We were up late discussing what we wanted to keep as heirlooms seeing dad left everything to us, and we needed a break, so we gathered up a couple cans of iced tea dad loved to drink and sat down on a pair of lawn chairs out back. I stared blankly overtop the tree line facing north. A white beam of light extending downwards into the trees caught my eye. I didn\'t see a source. I blinked a couple times and asked my brother to turn and see the light as well. He did. After about six or seven seconds, the beam seemed to angle and the nose of a blackish (or dark, at least) triangular thing....that's the only way to describe it....became visible.

        Then a thin row of pale lights outlined the bottom of the craft. It seemed to rotate once, so another point was facing our direction and took off in a blink of an eye over top of us and the house. We raced to the front yard to see if we could still see it, but it was gone. It made little to no noise at all except for piercing the air. It left a misty trail, but it disappeared barely after it came into focus. My brother, who has insisted we are "not alone" has had four encounters now....this is the first time I've ever believed him. This is the first time I've ever imagined something like this was possible. It actually drove us apart, and there was a time where we hadn't spoken for over a year. Feel free to contact my email address.

        Thank you to the witness for this report.

        Vancouver, B.C. - Orb Of A Soft Bright Orangey Yellow Colour

        Date: July 12, 2004
        Time: 1:55 a.m.

        I was woken by the dog barking, so I got up to take a look around the yard to see if there was a prowler. I was getting back into bed when I noticed a very bright light in the sky. Since I wear glasses and would not ordinarily be able to see anything in the sky with them removed, I wondered at what I was seeing.

        I put on glasses and looked at the sky. I saw a round orb of a soft bright orangey yellow colour, not unlike the colour of the moon sometimes. It was moving between my home and the north shore mountains, in an east to west direction. There was no sound and there were no lights visible at the back when it moved farther west and I could see the back of it. It stayed round moving towards the ocean. The light never fluctuated it just stayed a glowing colour. This object was way larger than an airplane, but did not appear huge. It was moving steadily and passed out of sight within a minute.

        Thank you to the witness for their report.

        Prince George, B.C. Bright Light

        Date: July 12, 2004
        Time: 11:15 p.m.

        Hello Brian:

        Just wanted to let you know that once again the electronics in our home have been acting up for the last couple days and guess what? Yes, we saw yet another unexplained light traveling across the night sky. It was the same as the other white light we told you about a couple of months ago. Twice the size of our largest visible star, traveling North East, and traveled without sound. Very bright, no red or blue lights with it (not aircraft); we watched it until it just disappeared. We didn't lose it from view because of it moving so far away, it just simply was gone. Watched it for approximately 3-4 min. Time was 11:15 p.m.

        It flew from the west heading northeast. It also traveled in a somewhat straight line, bit of an arch to it. The light was not as high as a satellite. Yes, it stayed the same intensity throughout the time we watched it, and it was very bright. It was just a huge ball of white light. The weather conditions were clear, with a few scattered clouds. Lots of stars out. We couldn't see the moon though, it hadn't come out yet.

        Thank you to the witness for the report.

        West Central Minnesota V Shaped/Colored Objects

        Date: July 14, 2004
        Time: Intervals from 3:00 a.m. CST to 5:00 a.m. CST

        It was a mostly clear sky with a profound sliver moon with bright Venus in the easterly sky. We witnessed Orb like stars of multiple colors. They were aligning from multiple directions to V shaped format then "shooting" north. There was a horrendous humming in the top of my head I don't think it is audible however, more electrical. Static. Did the best I could for pictures but does not do the event justice. I am going to get a night camcorder stills do not do moving phenomena justice. These are crops from multiple stills HP photosmart 320. "No other effects." See if someone can clean them up more to show the multiple orbs formatting.

        Thank you to the witness for this report and the excellent pictures.

          HBCC UFO Research Recently Reported Sightings



          An Experience While In The U.S. AF Stationed At Mt. Laguna AFS

          Brian,

          Enjoy reading your articles and thought I should "chime" in on the following:

          Re: There were also some guys who did a night time "Close Air Support" drill at Yuma Marine Air Base in Arizona who told me a great UFO Story. If any of you who actually experienced that sighting are reading this, please relay your story.

          I had an experience while in the U.S. Air Force stationed at Mt. Laguna AFS which might be related to the above. The 751st Radar Squadron was located about 12 miles north east of Pine Valley California on the edge of the desert and mountains at about 6,000 feet elevation. The time period was in the mid 1960s, probably 1965, in the mid summer evening about 20:00. Still light and clear skies and from that height over the clear dry desert you could sometimes see the Salton Sea. I was walking over to the "Ops" building from the AN-FPS-26 tower just as one of the "ops" officers was arriving. He was looking east out over the desert and pointed to a light about the size of a green pea held at arms length. He asked me what did I think it was. I initially though it was a naval military aircraft flying out in the area of the El Centro Naval Air Station which was in that direction about 45 miles east, and in the line-of-sight of Yuma, Arizona. After about 30 seconds, the light started to strobe and change colors with green, blue, red, white and yellow. Then I didn't think it was a Navy plane because I would only expect to see green and red position lights and landing lights. I don't know if strobe lights and a white tail light were required at that time for aircraft. I do know that Blue and Yellow were colors in the unknowns changing light scheme and those colors are not used in aviation.

          There were other incidents at this radar station during my tour of duty, 1965 - 1967. Some I personally experienced and some I heard from others. Very interesting times indeed.

          Thank you to the gentleman for this wonderful report.

          Again I would sure like to hear from other military folks, serving or out of the service who have information on a sighting over one of the military installations. Please note I respect everyone's privacy.

          Cannon Air Force Base in 1972 UFO Activity

          I was stationed at Cannon Air Force Base in 1972 assigned to the 27th Tactical Fighter Squadron.Home to the F-111 fighter. During a routine maintence night I was completing some write ups on a F-111 so it would be airworthy the next morning. As I waited for an airpac compressor to arrive I got into the cockpit to watch a ECM (Electronic Counter Measure) technician make some adjustments on one of the radar units. He had what I recall the ground imaging radar on and I could see on the screen the area out ahead of the ramp including the horizon and even the trucks going down the highway. I never saw anything like that and at the time probably shouldn't have as much of the electronics on board was considered access on a need to know.

          While watching the screen as the tech was making some adjustments I could see some bright globes on the screen. I could also see the vehicles going down the highway at the same time. I asked the airman sitting in the seat next to me what I was seeing and he said "spooks". I asked is what I'm seeing an anomaly of the radar? Is it broken? He said no,what we are seeing is UFO activity. He said sometimes he sees things like that when he runs the system. The objects were about 5 miles away and just hanging in the air just above the horizon. They appeared round in shape and there were maybe 5 or six spread out at the same altitude. The whole scenario was odd, I was very interested in seeing the radar work but taken completely by surprise with what I saw on the screen. He told me to keep my mouth shut as we both would end up at Thule...Thule, Greenland if spoke of it. That's all I can say, I never had another chance to sit in on a system test and watch the screen. I'm just amazed at how casual the technician treated the whole event.

          Thank you.

          Thank you to the person for this report. The military people have been incredible in their response by sending in so many reports. I would also be very interested in hearing from police officers who have been witness to a UFO or unexplained event.

          Lake District, Cumbria UK Triangle

          Date: 1982
          Time: Approx: 1:00 a.m.

          Number of witnesses: 5
          Number of objects: 1
          Shape of objects: Triangle

          Full Description of event/sighting: A triangular shape came over mountain top on deserted country road, no sound whatsoever. I remember it approaching us and then hovering above us in what seemed like slow motion. Rest of family only remember it taking off before we carried on our journey. Not one of us have ever spoke of this incident in all this time for fear of laughter.

          Thank you to the witness for the report.

          Son Of Military Man Witnesses Object Over Clark Airforce Base

          This may have no correlation to the USAF Airman's orange UFO account, however, my father was stationed at Clark Air Force base from 1986 to 1989 with the USAF Civil Engineering department and I was in high school at the time. Specifically in 1988, a friend from Wagner High (DOD overseas school) and I were sitting in front of her house around 2100 (9:00P.M.) and were observing an aircraft at what appeared to be high altitude executing loops and tight turning maneuvers.

          At the time it only appeared as a single point of light like an aircrafts amber navigation light. We watched it for about five minutes and it finally made a flight path across a somewhat full moon and we saw that it was a circular object roughly about a quarter size of the moon,it had no wings or vertical stabilizer or protrusions. This kind of shocked the both of us because we thought it was one of the F-4 Phantom aircraft they normally flew at Clark Air Force base. The craft slowly continued with the same maneuvers until we lost site of it over her roof. We reflected on it for several minutes and chalked it up to imagination and continued joking around until about 2300 (11:00 P.M.).

          Before I started walking toward the street with my friend to head home, a streak of light like a falling star zipped over head at low altitude in a horizontal flight path and blinked out before it met the tree line in front of us I believe to be a hundred yards in front of us. I do not believe this was a meteor or falling star due to the fact that i seemed so low altitude and didn't appear to be descending, but, rather, flying at a level altitude at a high rate of speed. This really got us both in a panic and I called my father to come pick me up rather than walk 2 blocks to my house on the base. Now, to the best of my recollection, what i write is as accurate of an account as my memory permits considering that this occurred fifteen years ago, however, I never forgot that what we both witnessed together that night. I am not saying that this account has any correlation with the Airman's account of an orange disk, but, stranger things have occurred in the Philippines than what you have been submitted. We never talked to anyone else about the flying sphere (as far as I know on her side), not out of fear or ridicule, but, we just chalked it up to another crazy night in the most superstitious Island in the south east orient. Just had to share this because of the story I read on the Rense site brought back some memories of that night.

          Thank you for your speedy reply. I don't mind if you post my experience with my name. I have nothing to hide or be afraid of, the experience I shared with you is what we saw that night on Clark AFB. The experience left me more open minded to just about anything, if someone told me they saw a ghost in there lifetime, rather than blow them off as being a loon, I am more attentive to listen to the details and walk away intrigued. Now, there may be a worldly explanation as to what we saw that night, however, in my twelve years in the military (USN), I have yet to see current or special programs aircraft look or perform the way this craft performed that night in 1988. I wish you luck in your voyage to learn the truth and please keep up the good work. Sometimes, even without hard to dispute evidence of (using the term loosely) extra-terrestrial craft, the smoking gun evidence is in the testimonial descriptions of peoples accounts of what they witnessed in our skies that doesn't seem to fit our everyday notion of what is acceptable, or for that matter, normal. Good luck.

          I would like to extend my make thanks to Mr. R/Allen Cracknell USN. Mr. Cracknell gave his permission to post his story with his name attached.

          Germany - Former Military Man Tells His Story

          Date: Around 1989

          Dear Brian, This is a report told to me by a former military person who was stationed in Germany. Back around 1989, along with two military colleagues, he saw three oblong discoids moving across the sky in broad daylight-in Germany. Having been trained to calculate aircraft speeds in the field, he and his colleagues estimated that the three craft traveled at 3000-5000 mph. He says they moved in pulse-like jumps of energy, nearly disappearing at some point in the pulse cycle.

          Also, one of his military base-mates told my contact and his military friends about how he had been sent, circa 1984-86, to do daytime guard duty in a remote, desert area of the US Southwest. On one of his guard postings at a remote, empty stretch of road in the desert, he said he turned at one point and saw the ground open up and a fairly large disc (I think the quote was that it was at least 50 feet diameter, if not more) which rose up out of the ground and soared off, almost soundlessly, then the ground closed back up. Whether it was a retractable door, I cannot say. Months after telling my (enlisted) contact and his (enlisted) military friends of the incident, the given soldier was arrested by his Army superiors and taken in on reportedly trumped up charges. He was never seen again. The story spread that he had hung himself while in Army prison, a story that his colleagues didn't buy. His case was marginally suspicious because he had acted almost like a kind of planted Intel. agent in the military, the kind who was suspected to report to officers about everything. There were other paranormal incidents that further piqued my contact's colleagues on such subjects. Further complicating the case is the fact that my contact's military colleagues (all enlisted) had long been interested in anything that smacked of alien-related doings in the Army. Their officers had been quiet, if not offish, on the subject. This was during a time when murder was the recourse for secrecy---before Disclosure was a household word, before Corso and so on. Hence, the uniformed disposition was typically repressive and cold. I can give you the person's email address if you like.

          Thank you to the gentleman for this interesting story.

          Burlington, Kentucky Hovering Oval Craft

          Date: November 92
          Time: Evening

          Location of Sighting: Off of 275 next to Ohio River.
          Number of witnesses: 1
          Number of objects: 1
          Shape of objects: Oval

          Full Description of event/sighting: I was deer hunting. it was a crisp cold day. I always hunt the power lines because the deer like to graze under the power lines. I was coming up a hill when I felt alot of, what appeared to be, static electricity in the air. I had never felt that before around the power lines but I thought that it could be the power lines making it feel very weird. as I getting close to the top, I saw an oval shaped object, dark gray in color just hovering above the ground roughly about 20 feet above the ground and close to the power lines.

          I hate to say it but it scared me to death. I turned and ran down the hill, got in my car and drove straight home. It scared me to the core. No I never looked back either. I totally wish that I had never seen that thing. Have had nightmares about it also..

          I told my wife what had happened. She believed me because I was totally white with fright.

          Never again have I gone hunting in that area alone. Never will either.

          Thank you to the witness for this report.

          Elgin, Ontario Bright Flash And ?

          Date: July 2000
          Time: Around midnight

          Number of witnesses: 2
          Number of objects: ?
          Shape of objects: ?

          Full Description of event/sighting: A friend and I had ventured to Delta, Ontario for the fair. On the way home we decided to take the back road home because we had had a few drinks and thought it was best not to travel the main highway. To this day either of us cannot explain what happened that night. The only words to describe our experience is fear. We were about a km up the road from the highway and we both remember it being a really dark night. We can't recall bad weather to cancel out lightning. It was a beautiful summers night. Nothing was out of the ordinary laughing, talking and the next thing we knew there was and incredible flash from the drivers side. Our bodies tingled and our ears rang . We were deaf for what seemed like hours. But what we can't figure out is we didn't hear a thing.There was absolutely no noise. To this day either of us have traveled that road at night. Ever since that day I am afraid of the dark and will not go out alone at night, or on the hottest nights sleep with my windows open or unlocked. I always feel like I'm being watched. I am hoping you can explain or other people have experienced an event similar to ours. This is not my first sighting but it is the most bizarre.

          Thank you to the person for this report.

          HBCC UFO Note: I have looking into this event to see if there was a possible missing time experience that had taken place.

          Maple Grove Cemetery, Argos, Indiana Triangular Shaped Craft

          Date: June 8, 2004
          Time: 5:15 a.m.

          Number of witnesses: 2
          Number of objects: 1
          Shape of objects: Stealth Bomber

          Full Description of event/sighting: I was setting my camera up to get pictures of Venus going past the sun on June 8,2004 when I decided to take a few shots of the moon.I took the picture around 5:15 AM.

          I was using a 35 mm camera with a 1000 mm lens.

          When I got the film developed I found this Stealth Bomber shape object at the 1:00 position of the moon.I have sent the picture off to a couple of different places and One says it is a UFO and the other says it is a bat. I know what bats look like and it is no bat. Besides bats don't fly that high.

          I would like to send you a picture so maybe you can tell me what it is. I am hoping I have captured something.

          What I have it is Sort of Triangular but at the same time looks like the Stealth Bomber. It has 3 sets of white lights at the top and 3 sets on the bottom. What ever it is it is very large and a long way off because it could not be seen with the naked eye.

          Thank you.

          Thank you to the witness for the report and picture.

          Fort Devens, Massachusetts Oval-Shaped Silver-Metallic Object

          Date: June 9, 2004
          Time: Approx. 2200 hours

          Number of witnesses: 1
          Number of objects: 1
          Shape of objects: Oval

          Full Description of event/sighting: Hi Brian

          I've been reading about all the other military personnel coming forward with their experiences at various bases so I wanted to give you mine...

          Active duty military, U.S. Army. I was watching TV with my two roommates. The movie 'Ice Station Zebra' was on a major network. It's a two hour movie. I left in the middle, and went for a walk (about 2200hrs). I walked from the Barracks to the football field in front of USATC & S Building. The Officer's Quarters were behind me, the flagpole was to my left, and I was facing the church at the other end of the field. It was a cool, clear night. I saw a big white light coming towards the church. As it got closer, I noticed that it wasn't just a light. It came closer still and I saw it was an oval-shaped silver-metallic object with six individual lights on the bottom rotating (red, green, yellow, orange, light blue, white). I heard a slight humming sound, similar to noise that bees make. As it got closer, I noticed three occupants in the clear top section.

          I remember they had on jumpsuits with a semi-circle red emblem ((())) on it. I was able to see equipment behind them.

          The ship hovered over the flagpole. I felt surprised, but didn't move.

          The next thing I knew--I woke up to my alarm set for 0600, got dressed in my uniform and went to work. I think this happened on a Wednesday night. I left for the weekend on Friday night and returned on Sunday. When I returned my two roommates told me that two Men-In-Black had come looking for me on Saturday. They had shown them official identification. They asked them: "What did she see?" "Who did she tell it to?" "Does she have any proof?" "Where can we find her?" This gave me Goosebumps all over when they told me. I had to go to the public library to find out what MIB was. I felt fear when I found out, but I never did see them.

          Thank you to the person for this great report.

          Lone Lake Park in Minnetonka, Minnesota

          Date: July 13, 2004
          Time: 9:45 a.m.
          I just read your article on Rense about western Minnesota orbs spotted today. and was reminded me that yesterday (July 13) I took a walk around a small lake in the western Twin Cities area with a friend about 9:45 a.m. We had stopped to rest on a bench on the west end of the lake overlooking it when my friend asked, "What are those?" At first I thought they were birds, and said so

          But then we agreed they were much too high. There were 8 or 9 white orbs swooping and dancing around, orbiting each other. We were looking almost into the sun toward the east; they were probably about 40 degrees above the horizon. Then I noticed a much larger object streaming across the sky, SW to NE, above them yet in their midst. We watched the show for about a 1-1/2 minutes, and then all of them simply disappeared.

          Additional Information:

          The lake is, I believe, what is called a kettle and is surrounded by hills. I have photographed it and painted it and may have a photo -- if you want.

          All objects were bright white, but were near the sun -- at least from our vantage point. I had to shade my eyes from the sun in order to see them. My friend's spot on the bench was slightly shaded by a tree, which is no doubt why she spotted them first.

          Thank you to the witness for their report.

          Fargo, North Dakota Bright Light Hanging Over The City

          Date: July 14, 2004
          Time: Around 3:30 a.m.

          Hi Brian,

          I'm located in Fargo, ND, just across the Red River, from Western MN. Last night at around 3:30 a.m., (July 14) I was carrying a bag of trash to the dumpster. I closed the lid on the dumpster, turned around, looked up and was surprised to see a *very* bright light hanging quite high almost directly over the center of town. My first thought was "Venus", and then I realized it was not in the right place to be Venus. I then realized that it was also at least twice as bright as Venus, and at the same time I noticed it was slowly moving. A few seconds later, it moved a little higher and then quickly faded away and disappeared. The only "color" I noticed was white...I didn't see any other colors. As it disappeared however, the (moving) shape seemed to be roughly similar to the pictures on the Rense website.

          At the time of the sighting, I was listening to a Sony Walkman using brand new headphones. As soon as this object disappeared, the right channel on my headphones stopped working. I checked the headphones on a different stereo later, and they worked fine. I don't recall any rough movements that might have damaged the radio. I suppose it could be a
          coincidence (the Walkman itself is fairly old), but I did find it a bit odd that it would fail at that moment. The entire sighting lasted maybe 10 seconds.

          Can you tell me approximately how far from Fargo, the sighting in West Central Minnesota was on that same night?

          Regards,

          Thank you to the witness for their report.

          West Central Minnesota Another Similar Object

          Date: July 16, 2004
          Time: 5:00 a.m. CST

          Bright light appears in Eastern sky. Just 'appears'. 'Turns on? No other flight of Orbs type of thing just appears! Appears to morph or separate itself. Abrupt turn off. Not fading or anything like that, not 'shooting away'. I didn't take a still after turn off! Kick me! Venus is on lower horizon but viewable separately. Again multiple stills are attached. See if someone can do more. I also ran 7 minutes of Sony video but I am new to the camera and I am learning what to do to download and then send video. so as soon as I am adept I'll send that to you. I have a friend, the man can interface with computers I swear! Very patient teacher too.

          Thank you to the witness for the report.

          Prince George, B.C. Light Changes Color

          Date: July 16, 2004
          Time: Approx: 1:00 a.m.

          Hi Brian.

          Last night just before 1 a.m. Mom and I went for a little stroll and we saw another light. Just like the one we saw on the 12th but this time it was going from West to East. Again it was not as high as a Satellite; it was white but as it grew distant from us, had appeared to grow orange in color. It was clear last night with many stars visible. It traveled in straight line and then it just disappeared as it started to turn orange. It did not look like a fire ball or falling star. I did see one falling star last night though, and this light did not behave like that. There were no clouds that it could have went behind as there were lots of stars where it disappeared in the sky. Because it is close to New Moon you could see every star up there and nothing would be obscured from our view. Oh, and once again the TV was acting up last night before we had the sighting. Also, the light made no noise and had no other lights on it. No red or blue like aircraft. That's it for now.

          Thank you to the witnesses for their report.

            HBCC UFO Research Recently Reported Sightings


            Naval Air Station, Memphis Tennessee Silvery Disk
            Hi Brian,

            In light all the other military UFO experiences being recently related, I thought it time to tell what my older brother saw in summer 1967 at the Naval Air Station, Memphis Tennessee. Although designated as NAS Memphis, the base is actually located adjacent to Millington TN.

            My brother was at the time, in training as a jet engine mechanic. He was working in a hangar near the main runway one day in summer 1967. It was late morning, and a C-117 (updated version of the C-47, R4-D, DC-3) was on final approach for a landing. As the plane came in over the end of the runway, my brother and his fellow airdales noticed that there was a silvery disk about 25-30 feet in diameter, above the cargo plane, and following it in. The C-117 landed, and taxied to the end of the runway. The disk was above the plane the entire way, accelerating up and out of sight when the plane reached the point where it turned to taxi back to it's parking spot. At lunch, there was an excited buzz about the "UFO". Seems almost everyone on base had seen the disk, and the scuttlebutt was that the weather officer in the control tower had taken photos as well.

            After lunch everyone on the station was called, by unit, to the base assembly hall to be "debriefed" about the event. No information or explanation was given for the silvery disk, but all were ordered not to discuss the incident with anyone. Court martial was threatened for anyone who disobeyed this order. No further word about the alleged photos. It was assumed that they had been sent up channels.

            My brother did not divulge this story to me until the late 1970s, when he had been out of the Navy for almost 10 years. To this day, it gives him the creeps to talk about it. If there is anyone reading this who was there at NAS Memphis on that summer's day, please contact me C/O Brian Vike.

            HBCC UFO Research would like to extend my deepest thanks to the person for getting this story out into the publics eye. Seeing there would have been a good number of military folks on the base at the time of this incident I am requesting that they please come forward and contact me. Also I want everyone to know that I will not give out anyone's personal information to anyone.

            Lake District, Cumbria UK Triangle

            Date: 1982
            Time: 5:00 a.m.

            Number of witnesses: 5
            Number of objects: 1
            Shape of objects: Triangle

            Full Description of event/sighting: A triangular shape came over mountain top on deserted country road, no sound whatsoever. I remember it approaching us and then hovering above us in what seemed like slow motion. Rest of family only remember it taking off before we carried on our journey. Not one of us have ever spoke of this incident in all this time for fear of laughter. Was visited since on several occasions.

            Additional Information below:

            Brian,

            Here is more detail of the actual event of that night.

            First of all their was five of us in the car - My Father (Health Physics worker at a nuclear power plant (ex R.A.F) - Now Retired), My Mother (Social Worker - Now Retired), My Grandmother (Now Deceased), My Sister & Myself.

            We had just returned from an holiday abroad and had landed at Manchester airport which is a few hours drive away from our home.

            After we had driven for a couple of hours along the motorway, we turned off to enter the Lake District which is a mountainous area of the UK that's pretty much deserted and frequently visited by ramblers / hikers.

            The time was around 1:00 a.m. by now and I started complaining I needed to use the bathroom. With us being miles away from anywhere my father pulled the car over and told me to go use the side of the road.

            I remember looking up at the sky as I left the car and walked towards some bushes. It was a crystal clear night, no clouds at all, you could see hundreds of stars and several mountains a mile or so away. Anyway, (I was having a wee) and the back door of the car was open when over the mountain top a mile or so away came a blue neon light. I remember looking at this
            light and thinking wow, how pretty. I shouted to my father to get out the car and come see it too.

            My father came out of the car and stood beside me for a minute or so as this thing headed straight towards us. My mother knocked the car headlights off at this point in hope that whatever was coming towards us wouldn't see us down below on the road and she shouted over for us to get back into the car.

            It was a triangular shaped object, I'm not sure of the speed it was traveling but it seemed to approach in almost slow motion as if gliding on air and there was no sound whatsoever. As it hovered above us I noticed that the blue glow was totally surrounding it like a thin layer with no apparent source and it was a dark metallic color inside of this light. It must of been about 30 feet above us and roughly about the size of a small passenger aircraft.

            My mother, sister and grandmother were now screaming at us to get into the car and my father said come on, lets get the hell out of here.

            The next thing I remember is us all driving down the road with my father saying how we should never mention this to anyone for fear of ridicule etc.

            However, my mother & sister recall a different story.

            Their version matches mine and my fathers so far as me getting out of the car and walking towards some bushes. They say the craft rose from the ground behind some trees near where I was standing and emitted huge white beams of light through the trees as it took off before my father dragged me into the car and we drove off in a panic.

            I'm sorry I cant give more details on the actual craft, but it was a long time ago and although it sticks in my mind I'm sure you know that the mind tends to become distorted and add things itself over time. For this reason I've kept it all as simple as possible.

            Finally, even nowadays I try to avoid that road whenever possible as a feeling of dread, even death, comes into my mind whenever I am on it.

            Nowadays we occasionally talk about it among ourselves and sometimes even manage a laugh or two about it.

            Thank you to the witness for this report.

            The Valley Of Fire, Las Vegas Sightings

            Spring of 1986

            In I believe the spring of 1986 my husband, mother, a friend and I decided to take our telescope out in the desert away from city lights and do some sky watching, we ended up in what's called The Valley Of Fire about 35 miles north east of Las Vegas. I don't know what time it was we were there quite a while, it was very dark having no moon. I was facing east when I noticed a white dot moving from the south east directly north east, turned out there were more (9) to be exact in groups of (3) moving slowly across the sky all at the same speed. With the telescope we could make them out clearly even though they were pretty high, they were all white and foot ball shaped and they all had a row of six round port holes on the side toward us.

            We watched them move away at the same speed they flew across the sky and on out of sight. We saw one other object that night right after we watched those (9) cross the sky, it was flying in a spiral, a flashing white light, moving to fast straight up. The next experience I will tell you happened (12) years previous to this in the same general area as The Valley Of Fire is just off the old Salt Lake Hwy heading toward St. George, Utah. I believe these two experiences are connected, for what I
            think is a very good reason, as I hope you will see. Near as I can recall, it could been a year either side, in about 1974 my parents decided they needed new glasses, there was a doctor in St. George, Utah that was at the time charging much less then in Vegas.

            Seeing as how they were kind of up in years I decided to drive them, they drove for a long time after this, but I was off work that day and wanted to take the ride. We left early, the appointment was three that afternoon and we decided it was such a beautiful cool morning we wanted to look at the desert as it was in bloom that spring and was absolutely gorgeous. We
            got there in time to have lunch then see the doctor. His office was on a side street in a converted house, it was quite nice on a corner with a wonderful window seat facing the street. There was of course all sorts of plants and cushions, the house was kind of old fashioned with beveled glass in the door and a old brass door handle that shocked me when I
            took hold.

            The waiting room wasn't to large, about the size of a small living room/setting room with chairs around the walls and coffee tables with magazines like any other doctors office. We sat just to the right of the front door and about five minutes later the receptionist came and took them to a exam room. I glanced at the grand father clock on the wall and it said, three pm, we were right on time. There was a man sitting across the room in the opposite corner reading a magazine, for some reason unknown to me I suddenly had the urge to go strike up a conversation which that really isn't unusual for me as I like to talk
            with people, but this was a very strong feeling. I sat in the chair on the other wall in that corner so there was a chair between us in the corner, I picked up a magazine and shortly noticed a nice picture of the moon. I had been noticing the shadows on the moon didn't look quite right for a few days, nothing big it's just I watch the sky all the time and it didn't seem quite right. I never talk to strangers about UFO's or anything related for the most part, but today for some reason I said to this man.

            "Have you noticed the shadows on the moon don't look quite right?" He said. "Yes, that's because it's shifted 43 degrees, but not to worry it has done this before and will shortly return to normal". I asked how he knew this. He replied. "I'm with a group of scientists and we been in the Utah desert for the last two months taking various measurements and photographs of your planet, sun and solar system with very sensitive sophisticated equipment." The next words from my mouth shocked me. I asked him if while there they saw any UFO's. He right away responded with a big grin. "Oh yes". He then said. "If you watch the eastern sky in spring time you will see the ships in a trade route just outside your atmosphere, you can see them because your sun reflects off them at that time of year." (This is why I believe these experiences are connected.) For some reason I never thought about what he said again until 1986 when we were watching the eastern sky and there they were big as life.

            Those 9 objects certainly could have been cargo ships, that's what they looked like to all of us. Using the telescope we could see a lot of details. By the by I have not seen them since, maybe someone in the more western part of the country could, I have no clue if they still run that area of our sky or not. I knew something was up when he kept talking about your sun, your planet and your solar system, about then I began to notice things didn't feel right, the air felt heavy, hard to explain but that's the best I can do with that one. I noticed the tree's outside stopped moving in the breeze that was there what seemed like a few moments earlier and the piped in music was silent, I also noticed the receptionist had not moved, her head remained resting on her hand, elbow on the desk the pencil in the other hand also not moving. I again looked at the clock, it said (3) PM, the pendulum seemed stuck, no movement at all, I know we had been sitting there for a minimum of twenty minutes and likely a lot more than that. Now I got upset, I said, "What the hell is going on here?" There had been a few
            minutes previous, I felt I would follow this man any where he wanted to go, that he understood me perfectly, knew everything about me, that feeling was fleeting when I realized things were far from normal.

            This man looked to been in his middle fifties near as I could tell, he had reddish blond hair combed to the side thinning on top, his eyes were very blue and his complexion ruddy, as if he was fair but had been in the sun a while. His face was clean shaven, his teeth were very white and even, looked as if they belonged to a twenty year old instead of a older man, and he had a great smile, he appeared absolutely human and he wore round gold rimmed glasses. He told me he was there to pick up another pair the doctor sent for repair. I could see blonde hair on his arms, actually more white than blonde as his sleeves were rolled up, his hands were wide, fingers short and short finger nails. He wore a plaid shirt with light tan corduroy pants, he had on ankle high work or hiking boots that looked absolutely new and they had leather laces, he also wore a white under shirt. The way his boot looked he had not been in any desert, there were no scratches or any dirt and his cloths were
            absolutely clean. Once I began to suspect things were not normal he began to grin, suddenly I had a very strong urge to get up and see about my parents, as if something awful was about to happen when I knew they were absolutely fine.

            I fought for a few seconds but could not resist, I found myself standing up and my feet moving, but I made up my mind I
            would not lose sight of this guy, which didn't exactly happen. I made three steps and turned to my left so I could see the corner, he was in from the side of my eye, in those few seconds he was gone, as I began to turn back the front door swung open on it's own and I jumped and grabbed it before it could close and ran outside. No one was there, no car was there, no dust was there and there's no way he could gotten out of that room past me that I would not seen him, what's clear is he didn't want me to see how he left. I came back inside needless to say very upset, the receptionist was slowly waking up, she yawned as if she had been sleeping, I asked her if anyone had been in that afternoon but us for glasses or anything else, she said no, I said nothing further. Once we were on our way I asked if they saw anyone in the waiting room when we walked in, my mother said no, Dad described the mans clothing which made me feel a whole lot better, it was not a dream after all. The other thing that's always bothered me is only one other person knew where we were going that day, of course along with what it was he wanted and why he met us there in the first place.

            Thank you to the person for their report.

            UFO Over Lowry AFB Colorado

            Spring of 1991

            Hi Brian,

            I am really enjoying reading all of these articles on UFOs over military bases. Naturally I thought I would share mine with you. It is not very exciting but still interesting just the same. It happened in the spring of 1991 at Lowry AFB Colorado (now closed). I had just finished basic training with the Air Force and was sent to Lowry for my technical training as an Aircraft Armament Systems Specialist. I was there a few weeks when this happened. I was at what we called the mini-mall. It housed Burger King, the barber shop and a few small shops. I was exiting the building when I just froze and felt like I needed to look up. As I did I noticed this perfectly round sphere coming from my left side in the sky. It was the brightest silver you have ever seen. It shimmered in the sky like a Christmas ornament and made no noise at all. It was about the size of a pea held at arms length. I could not estimate it's height. It traveled across the sky from left to right (in the direction of Denver Int. Airport!) in a perfect line never swaying or fluttering. I watched in stunned amazement the entire time until it went out of sight. It almost seemed as if time stood still for a second because I remember looking around to see if there was anyone else seeing this and it just seemed as if the base had went silent. Afterwards I told few buddies who just laughed it off. I have had several sightings in my life but this was the only one that has ever happened in broad daylight. Anyways,thanks for reading and keep up the great work! The truth is coming!!


            Thank you to the person for this report.

            San Antonio Texas The Object Was Huge

            Date: 1995
            Time: 6:00 p.m. (dusk)

            Location of Sighting: Water Gardens in Corpus Christi above the Harbor Bridge.
            Number of witnesses: 5
            Number of objects: 1
            Shape of objects: Perfectly Round with lights around perimeter, and one big light in the center.

            Full Description of event/sighting: Well anyway me and my wife are down at the Water Gardens and I am telling her all about this boy and the pictures, and just feeding her with all this info...(witness was referring to a MUFON meeting he attended) well she finally says look! I will listen to you and all that but don't push this stuff on me... I have to see to believe, at that moment I made a request to them (aliens I guess) I wish they would come down right now so you can see them and believe in them. Like I do. Well at that moment in conversation I told her in Spanish..." look in the sky. Here comes a car."

            There were two lights directly above the Harbor Bridge like back behind it a little . She laughed and we just kept talking thinking the whole time it was probably a plane or something. Well for some reason I was watching it in the corner of my eye, and then realized like in no time it was directly above us. At this point my wife was starting to freak, and I was so full of excitement that this was happening. I remember looking up and this object was huge, and made no sound... that was scary ...something that big floating above us and all you could here was a hovering noise..a very faint hovering noise... not loud at all... The lights glowed from white to yellow to green and then the reverse. The object then moved directly behind the Art Building, came to a perfect stop and made a 90 degree turn around the corner of the building going beyond our sight... I was trying to run to the other side of the building and my Wife was pulling on my hand.She did not want me to go because she was scared... I finally broke loose and ran around the building only to see the object blink out. It jumped from near the art building to about 1 or 2 miles out above the bay and then just blinked out again and disappeared. My wife to this day does not like talking about this incident.... She is old school.. you know every thing has to have an explanation.

            Thank you to the witness for this report.

            I believe it was September 1998 It was a clear night with a slight wind. I was leaving my girlfriends house when I saw a neon orange sphere that was pitch black in the center. it was traveling north at no higher than 1000 ft. It was the size of a silver dollar held out at arms length, and made no sounds. It was moving very slowly when I saw a blue ball of light drop from the bottom of the craft about 50 or so feet and disappear. This went on about 4 more times. 5-10 seconds between each drop.

            I had my lighter, so I flashed it a bunch of times and the craft stopped right above us. It dropped another blue ball of light and just sat there. My girlfriend was crying at this point. I flashed my lighter again and the most spectacular thing I have ever seen happened. It reacted by instantly jumping to the left, jumping to the right, changing shape from spherical to cylindrical, then with what sounded like a backfire, it shot off towards the south east at about 4000-5000 mph. The backfire sound woke her father up who asked us what the hell was that noise? we told him what we saw and he tried to tell us the same b.s. debunks say about the phoenix lights being military aircraft dropping flares. Whatever.

            1999

            I also saw the same craft or a similar one with my mother a year later on the opposite end of Escondido. Around 11:30 p.m., We were out in the driveway smoking when we saw it. Again heading north, and dropping blue balls of lights. No spectacular exit this time, when I got my maglite out it performed a 90\' right turn into a cloud before i had a chance to hit it with the light.

            I am very interested to know if you have received any similar reports regarding this type of craft. I welcome your comments!

            Thank you.

            Thank you to the witness for this report.

            Windsor, Ontario Three Witness Get A Show

            Date: June 26, 2004
            Time: 10:40 p.m.

            Number of witnesses: 3
            Number of objects: 1 then 3
            Shape of objects: Spherical

            Full Description of event/sighting: My 76 year old father-in-law (name removed), my 14 year old son (name removed) and myself, 42 years of age - were sitting in my backyard, at the entrance of my garage door, watching a small fire I had made in my outdoor fire pit. We were facing due-East at that time and it was a clear night all around.

            We were talking about the stars that we say in the sky and (father-in-law) was saying how he had never seen a shooting star before. Then (son) and I were talking about NORAD. I was explaining to him what it was all about.

            Suddenly, (son) (to my right) looks North, jumps out of his chair in excitement and literally hollers "LOOK! - OH MY GOD, IT'S A METEOR".

            Well, instantly (father-in-law) and I looked North, jumped and shouted a few Holy _ _ _ _! 's ourselves.

            At this point, (son) had moved in front running to get my digital camera for a picture.

            The single huge object was fiery bright orange with a huge long trail. It was absolutely crystal clear to us that this was a meteor. From our view, we witnessed the object traveling from the North-west in an Easterly to South-Easterly direction for approx. 15-20 seconds. At which time, two smaller chunks broke away. One headed in a South-Easterly direction and the other same size object, headed North-East.

            Wouldn't you know it, the battery in my camera had enough charge to flash but not enough to process and store the picture.

            Within 5-7 minutes of us loosing sight of the object, we were again sitting in our chairs talking excitedly about what we had just witnessed. I reiterated that (father-in-law) had just made the comment about never before seeing a shooting star. This was unbelievable. Looking up from my chair to the South-East sky, I saw three very tiny red lights heading West. I told my son (name removed) to look at them as well. We watch these 3 red lights travel at speeds neither of us had ever witnessed. They traveled across the entire night sky at speeds none of us had ever seen or heard about. And as well, they were not stationary. All three lights jockeyed around each other. Again, like nothing we had ever seen.

            I had great difficulty seeing them as they had faded from my sight, (son) said he could still see them. He pointed them out to me and he was right. At that precise moment, we both witnessed one of the lights leave the pack and head directly back in the direction from which it came. And again, at speeds neither of us could explain. (father-in-law) couldn't see them anymore at this point.

            The two other lights continue on until we could no longer see them and the single light, heading in the opposite direction had also disappeared.

            Sorry for the details, but this was absolutely so cool - and the fact that we couldn't get a picture - turned this into a fish story with my wife. She keeps saying (in a teasing way), "how come there wasn't anything on news, or Discovery Daily Planet or the newspaper if this thing was so huge and awesome as you say". So, when I saw the article posted: "UFO SIGHTING REPORT HAMILTON ONTARIO June 26th 2004 Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research

            I had to submit a report as well. I've looked everywhere I can and this is the only case that validates our sighting.

            Thank you to the person for sending in this super report.

            Morphing UFO Phoenix, Arizona - 6 Video Clips

            Date: June 27, 2004
            Time: 7:05 p.m. -7:18 p.m.

            Hey Brian.

            I have been telling you that I have alot of video (over 5 hours) and that I was sending you the highlights of all my sightings by this weekend and on Monday I am sending it out to you, finally. I want to give you some more clips of these highlights because I think they are important and I didn't want to wait a week to hear what you have to say about these particular clips I am sending you today. (July 18th, 2004) This is something that happened on June 27th, 2004 at 7:05 p.m.-7:18 p.m.. I wrote to you a couple of weeks ago about this story and you posted it with the picture I grabbed from the video I am sending you today.

            The object when viewed through the binoculars looked like 50 to 60 balloons tied together to form an arch. They were red and blue mostly with some white ones scattered throughout the object. But when I watched it for a minute I saw that it was rotating and changing shape and heading my way, East from West. The object, in my opinion looked to be no higher than 1000 feet.high. I grabbed the video camera and video-taped the event for 18 min. When I first spotted it I was waiting for it to come over my house but the object stopped a few blocks short and parked itself in the N.W. sky. At one point it looked like a spinning top and then it turned a little and looked like a WWII cannon. It then started to straighten out and change color to an orange and yellow with a portion of it looking like it was black. It went horizontal and vertical and turned very slowly. It teetered back and forth and it never moved from its position. Actually, once it straightened out it stopped moving in my direction or any direction.

            After several minutes of taping this I thought it would be a good idea to put the camera on the tripod and watch the event till the end or whenever it disappeared. But as I am putting the camera on the tripod I kept one eye on the object and I was just starting to look up to adjust the camera and I noticed that the object(s) dispersed left and right. But it was so fast it looked like a blur to me and I never got to record that because it happened before I got the camera situated on the tripod. I hope this comes out good on your end. I will send other clips of this one at a time through several emails so you can check it all out and I can fit it all.

            Thank You again and again.

            Thank you to the gentleman for all of the clips and report.

            Phoenix, Arizona Object Video Taped As Jet Flies Overhead.

            Date: July 17, 2004
            Time: 10:00 a.m.

            Brian. How are ya? I saw something today that you may enjoy as much as I do. I taped the same (stepper UFO) object I did last week but this time it was directly over my house and I taped 10 more minutes with an interesting climax. There's 2 to 3 orbs. The main orb, or the one in front, is a golden-white color and seems to be the lead object. The other orbs are
            blueish-black and seem to be causing the tumbling motion you see. They are generally in the back of the white orb from where I am watching them and the seem to be moving but the white object seems to keep it in check or in control. That's what is causing the tumbling motion. That's my opinion.


            We've had some monsoon activity and with the humidity there seems to be a thin haze in the sky. Maybe a few thousand feet high, maybe a little more. but no higher that 5000 ft. The object was moving from the South heading North about 5-10 MPH but pauses once in a while like it is getting its bearings straight and continues along in a general direction. Who knows why
            it pauses but that's what it does. I put the camera on the tripod and found it immediately, very visible. I moved out of the sun and under my porch to stay cool. Remember, I am in Az. it's already 96 degrees at 10:00 a.m.. And no, today it's not a dry heat thanks for asking. Anyway as I am taping this I let the object do it's thing and when it leaves the camera's screen I have
            to re-adjust the sight to start taping it again. After several minutes of doing this I am moving the camera to re-adjust when a plane comes out of nowhere and crosses the path of the object and that's what the clip is showing. The object never moves, that's me moving the camera to re-adjust and it just so happens that this plane was coming overhead without me
            knowing otherwise I wouldn't have moved.

            Bad timing I guess but I am still happy with the sighting. The object never veers off course. That's me moving to adjust the camera. So I don't want anyone to think that the object was dodging the plane because it wasn't. I know that's what it looks like but it's not true. The plane was seemingly close to the object. A few minutes later the object disappeared into the thin haze and that's when I stopped taping. It's not balloons because balloons don't stop and go and if it's a weather experiment than why would you test your equipment where planes fly?

            Anyway this was a good day, eh? Let me know what you think and thank you for everything.

            Thank you to the fellow for the interesting footage and report.

              HBCC UFO Research Recently Reported Sightings



              Custer Park, Illinois 1955 Or 1956 Sighting

              Date: Approximately 1955 or 1956
              Time: Daytime sighting.

              Approximately 1955 or 1956, and this one is very special to me for reasons that I am sure you will understand. I was raised in Aurora Illinois, about 40 miles west of Chicago. My grandmother lived by herself in a farm house on the edge of a very small town called Custer Park. When I was little, I used to spend weekends with her once in a while. One weekend in the spring or summer ( I was only about 4 or 5) I was staying over, and as the sun was going down my grandmother was outside getting drinking water from the pump attached to her well. She called me outside and pointed to the west where the sun had already set but was still lighting up the horizon. As she pointed, she said, "Look (name removed), there goes one of God's angels". What she was pointing at was a large bright white light moving silently across the sky from west to east, intense like a star but bigger. Remember, I am talking about 1955 or 1956 here, and that was before any satellites were launched and before the quiet t jets at high altitude we are now used to were flying so there should have been nothing that could move silently across the sky at that time. And you know, I am 53 now, but that memory from when I was 4 or 5 will always stay as fresh in my memory as if it happened yesterday. My grandmother and I were always very close, and to share that moment with her was indescribably special.

              Thank you to the witness for this report.

              Missing Time On A Country Highway In The Summer Of 1957

              Date: Summer of 1957
              Time: 9:00 p.m.
              Location: Outside of Julian, California (north of San Diego, California)

              My late husband had been a retired USAF Lt. Colonel ---- however, the point being is that I had an experience years ago at the age of nineteen. I also had a witness to this startling event. The witness and I ....'(friend)'...had seen a UFO off a country highway leading from Julian, California (north of San Diego, California)...and had seen the UFO hovering off the side of the country road. In fact, after the event we later realized we had lost "Three Hours Of Time". Also, the car would not start after we had stopped the it -- after the UFO finally slowly tilted to a 45 degree angle...and sped off into the sky -- the car started again. This actually happened. I got a very close look at the UFO. If I'd had a camera, I could prove this event but regrettably I did not have a camera at the time.


              Additional Information Below:

              The UFO sighting occurred in the summer of 1957. A young man named '(removed)' and I had driven to Julian that weekend to see my parent's cabin. We saw the cabin and then drove to the small town of Julian afterwards to walk around and see the sights. Julian is located about sixty-five miles of San Diego, California (where I am from originally).

              My friend and I were driving back towards San Diego, California. As we rounded a small mountain on the two-lane, country highway -- we saw a hovering UFO just off to the side. As I recall, the time was approximately 9:00 p.m. Distance-wise, the UFO was about 300 feet east of us -- off the country road. No other cars came by. (friend) was scared to death when he saw the strange craft. He wanted to continue driving as fast as he could to leave the area. I didn't. I wanted to see the strange craft since I didn't know what it was. Silly me, I thought it was something our government had created. In spite of (friend's) protests, he stopped the car but wouldn't get out. I jumped out of the car and ran to the other side of the highway. (friend) kept urging me not to go see the UFO, but I wanted to get a better look at it. I ran to the other side of the highway to observe the craft closer. This was a new experience and I didn't know what to do as I observed the craft hovering about forty feet off the ground. (friend) remained frozen in the car clinging to the steering wheel.


              As I stood there by myself watching the strange craft, I saw what appeared to be an aluminum type metal that had been seamed. The craft omitted a strange light at night. There was a dome on top and the craft was circular in appearance. It hovered over the ground. There appeared to be portholes in the upper dome of the craft. Via the portholes, I could see a pulsating red light. I was quite taken in seeing this unusual object. The UFO was hovering over what had been a barbed wire fenced in pasture. There were no houses in the area. I remained standing on the side of the highway for about fifteen minutes. I even waved to the craft. After an approximate fifteen minutes, the strange craft tilted to about a forty-five degree angle. The UFO then righted itself. It picked up more speed and sped off into the sky. I stood there watching this strange phenomena.

              After the UFO had sped off into the sky, I hurried back to the waiting car. My friend was terrified. I hurriedly ran around the back of the car and jumped into the driver's seat. My friend was screaming, "The car won't start! The car won't start! This is all we needed." He frantically kept turning the ignition key. Finally, the car's engine started. We headed back towards Highway 395 leading into San Diego. I had to be home at a certain time and couldn't be late.


              It seems to me that this event took place within a time frame of about fifteen or twenty minutes. Just before (friend) and I had left Julian earlier, we had checked my watch -- that's how I knew what time it had been when we surprisingly saw the UFO on down the country, two-lane highway -- having left Julian, California. After the UFO incident, my friend asked me to check the time before we approached Highway 395. I did as we drove along. Shockingly, that's when I discovered we had "Lost Three Hours Of Time". Brian, the time just totally disappeared after the UFO incident. I have no idea whatsoever where the missing time went. Absolutely none! It was a real shock because my parents expected me home at a certain time and "Not To be Late"!

              The best description is the fact that we were both stunned that this event had even happened. My friend continued to be in a high anxiety state all the way back to San Diego City. The event scared him! I don't recall how I felt physically --- I felt like I was in the 'Twilight Zone' even though I had thought this had been a craft manufactured by our government. I was absolutely shocked when I realized what time it was -- horrified is more like it since I couldn't be late getting home! Whatever triggered the missing time still kind of scares me in a fashion. When time is missing, it's like there's no control.

              That's all we could talk about all the way back to my parent's home...meaning having seen the strange UFO earlier. We didn't know what to make of it and especially the three hours of missing time?

              After we arrived at my parents home ...it was really late. My mother opened the door wondering where we had been? My father was up anxiously awaiting too -- My friend immediately told them what had happened earlier. My parents believed us -- we shared with my parents everything we had seen earlier. My mother told me not to report anything since she had feared there might be complications later. I followed her advice at the time.


              As far as 'marks' on my body, I don't recall seeing strange marks at the time. Nothing came to light until the year 1987 when I had had surgery on my nose. During the minor surgery, my doctor had surprisingly discovered a former 'stitch' on the end of my nose. I told my doctor at the time, "I'd never had a stitch on my nose -- ever in fact." Later I had wondered if this had to do with the UFO episode in the summer of 1957. These are questions that still remain unanswered to this very day in fact.

              I've thought of hypnotic regression over the years. However, three hypnotists have tried to hypnotize me in the past -- however, they were not successful. Subconsciously, I apparently tend to resist hypnotic regression.


              Over the years since, I have tried to locate my friend on several occasions. I would have liked him to have backed up our true story. He used to live in San Diego, California years ago but I have no idea where he has moved to now. The last time I had seen him, I had been driving by a drive-in restaurant -- I had observed him in a convertible with several kids in the car. The year had been 1966 maybe. Since then, I have no idea whatsoever where he has gone. I wished I could locate him. Now that you mention it, we did kind of go our separate ways after the UFO incident in 1957. That does seem odd to me now that I think about it years later. Again, it had been an incredibly strange night.

              No, my parents did not go through a similar situation. I am glad they believed my friend and I because the UFO event did actually happen. My parents knew I didn't lie. Nevertheless, it had been scary knowing I would arrive home much too late after the UFO incident.


              Brain, I hope this helps you in your research efforts!

              I can't thank the person enough for allowing me to post her story, thank you very much.

              Subic Bay Naval Station July 1966


              I was on board the USS Holder (DD-819) and we had traveled from Norfolk, Virginia through the Panama Canal on to Pearl Harbor and finally to our temporary home port in the Philippines, Subic Bay Naval Station.

              For the next 4 months we were in and out of Subic Bay several times. In these 4 months there was only one time that any aircraft came directly over our ship, and that was on a Sunday in July when we first arrived at the base.
              I had just purchased a 35mm German made agfa camera and had loaded it with 36 shot color slide film. I recall distinctly that it happened on a Sunday because we were in our dress white uniforms, and I wanted to get pictures of all my shipmates.
              As I walked around deck snapping pictures 2 jet fighter aircraft appeared directly overhead and were in a steep climb nearly straight up with full afterburners kicked in. I took my camera and aimed it at the 2 jets and snapped one picture, I saw nothing other than the 2 jets. The noise from the jet fighters was deafening, and for the next 4 months there was never any plane that came over the top of our ship at pierside.

              Tied up pierside with us was a nuclear attack submarine, and our ship was equipped with nuclear anti submarine rockets, ASROC.

              When the slides were developed I looked at them and the ones of the 2 fighter airplanes were very small, they must have been at 15,000 feet high or more, I put the slides away and 6 years later, Christmas 1972, a friend gave me a slide projector.

              Soon I had a 5 foot square picture screen, actually a white painted wall, to look at my slides on. When I came to the slides of the 2 jets over Subic Bay in 1966, straight above these jets at maybe 35-40,000 feet were 2 distinctive round white dots and the jets were vectored exactly at them.

              I showed the slides to several friends and they could not believe what they were seeing. Some suggested reflection in the lens or maybe a defect in the film. All the other shots were perfect and nothing to suggest a malfunction of the camera.

              I put the slides away and stored them for many years in the basement, when I went to get them water had wiped them all away, so regrettably I do not have the slides anymore.

              Clark Airforce base was nearby and maybe a reader of yours that was a radar operator could comment on this event from 38 years ago. Best Wishes

              Thank you to the gentleman for this excellent and interesting report.

              I am still requesting other military folks come forward if they have had an experience with an unknown object when serving.

              Aurora Illinois Moving Oval Shaped Object

              Date: Spring of 1968
              Time: Evening

              In the late spring of 1968, we had quite a flap of UFO sightings going on in the Aurora area. As a matter of fact, the articles still exist in the Aurora Beacon Newspaper Archives. Toward the end of that period of activity, I got my chance to see one. After dark I was sitting out on our front porch and looking to the east and over a line of trees about 2 or 3 miles away there was this bright light that was moving back and forth over the same path. I watched it for about 5 minutes until I thought to run into the house and get this 2.5 inch refractor telescope that I had. Anyway, when I came back out it was still there so is set the telescope up on it's tripod and lined it up on the path that the object was following.

              When I finally got it in sight what I saw was an oval shaped light, red at the front ( the direction of travel at the time ), yellow in the middle and blue at the back. I watched it for a few more passes the it moved off, silently and quickly to the north without gaining altitude- it just got smaller until it was out of sight. Well, I thought the show was over. I stepped out in the middle of our yard, looking all over the sky to the north and east to see if I could see anything else. As I was standing there 2 interceptor jets came out of the west and roared right over me heading north toward where the object disappeared. They just about scared the daylights ( I'm being nice here...) out of me because they were well below 500 feet and on afterburner. I think that I can safely say that was an actual sighting- at least the pilots of those interceptors would certainly agree with me!.

              Thank you to the witness for the report.

              Frankston, Melbourne Five Rectangular Shapes On The Moon

              Date: 1970's

              I'm not sure how to begin this but in the early 1970's I'm not sure what year I was living in Frankston a suburb of Melbourne Australia. It was early evening and a neighbor from across the road (name removed) asked me to come over to his house and look at something. He didn't say what it was.

              On arriving at his house I noticed a reflecting telescope set up on a tripod in the front garden, (neighbor) looked through the eyepiece and adjusted the elevation of the telescope slightly then asked me to take a look. The telescope was focused on the moon and was in a low elevation, after a minute of asking what I was looking for he said "do you see anything on the moon" I then saw quite distinctly five rectangular shapes set out in a flower petal configuration the narrow ends towards the in inner and outer part of the circle.

              There was no doubt the objects were on the moons surface as (neighbor) had to adjust the elevation to match the movement of the earth as the moon set. (Yes setting not rising). He had earlier phoned the Melbourne observatory only to be told that the elevation was too low for their telescope to be used.

              I know many other people observed this sighting and I think it was written up in the "Post" magazine but not sure about daily papers. I would like to know if anyone followed this up.

              Now to my reason for emailing you. Following this sighting I mentioned it to my father on his next visit, he told me that there were very strange things around and that he had personally seen what I believe pilots called a Foo fighter. He was the radar operator on a Meteor NF11 night interceptor sometime in the late 1940's or early 1950's he spotted an image on radar and it was then visually confirmed and took up station at their wingtip. He told me these phenomena had been reported many times but no one knew what they were, he didn't believe they were ball lightning. He said he had also seen strange lights in the air over the south of England near Westbury.

              Thank you to the person for this report.

              San Bernardino, California Boomerang

              Date: 1978
              Time: Evening

              I left Air Force active duty in 1978 for about 2 1/2 years. My last active duty assignment at that time was George AFB California, just outside of Victorville (It's closed now). Anyway, after separating from the Air Force at that time we lived in San Bernardino, CA. From our house, we could see both the San Bernardino and San Gabriel mountain ranges. Our next door neighbors were temporary foster parents, and I would help out with the kids once in a while. One night, this 16 year old boy that was staying with them and I were sitting in our back yard just after sundown talking about various things. As we sat there, we were looking at the last light on the mountains. It was a clear night, and as a matter of fact there were several aircraft in the air staked up, waiting for clearance to land at Los Angeles International airport, about 90 miles away from us. Anyway, as we sat there we both saw this very large object drift slowly over us and toward the mountains. This thing was really high up, higher than the aircraft waiting to land at LAX and at least 20 or 30 times larger than any of those aircraft. It was sort of a boomerang shape and was reflecting the lights below on what looked like a brushed aluminum skin , with no other lighting. We had it in sight for about 30 seconds to a minute until it disappeared between the mountain ranges.

              Thank you to the witness for the report.

              San Bernardino, California Sighting - 1979

              Date: 1979
              Time: Evening

              In the San Gabriel mountains that I mentioned in my last account, there was a place called Lytle Creek that we used to like to go and camp. When you get up to the camping area, you have a beautiful view of San Bernardino and Fontana stretched out below you. this one night in 1979 we were camping with a friend of ours in Lytle Creek. We got up there late, so we made dinner just before dark. After dinner we were sitting there looking at the lights and noticed this really bright light over San Bernardino, probably at about 800-1,000 feet. (We hadn't noticed it as we were eating, but we had our kids with us and were pretty preoccupied with them, so it could have been there all along.) At first we thought it was a police helicopter, but then we noticed it did not move, just hung in one place. there were people camping close to us, and they walked over and asked us if we saw the light, too. We all sat there for about 2 hours and the light didn't move at all, just abruptly disappeared. As I said, this is a possible. I have no idea what we were looking a, but there were 5 adults seeing exactly the same thing.

              Thank you to the witness for the report.

              Iowa Whitish Clear Sphere

              Date: 1981
              Time: Evening

              After I reentered active duty with the Air Force in 1981, we made a trip from Offutt AFB, NE back to my home town of Aurora, Illinois. Somewhere in the middle of Iowa, my wife took over driving and I rested. For some reason, I had this strong feeling to lean out the window and look up. I did, and What I saw was a sort of whitish clear sphere drifting in the sky. I pulled back in to tell my wife to pull over so I could get a better look but when she stopped and I got out, it was nowhere to be seen. I have often thought that what I saw was a weather balloon at altitude, but if that was the case I still should have been able to see it after we stopped , and I really don't know what a weather balloon would be doing over the middle of Iowa. Still, there most likely is a natural(earthly) explanation for this one- I just don't know what it is.

              Thank you to the witness for the report.

              Kelowna, B.C. "V" Shaped Craft

              Date: April 25, 2004
              Time: 1:20 a.m.

              I just read the report of a sighting on April 26th in Kelowna. I saw a similar object on the 25th at 1:20 a.m. I was in Kelowna in a hockey tournament and was in bed in my hotel room. Two team members were also in the room although one was sleeping and the other could not get to the window fast enough to witness the object. What I saw was a "V" shaped craft as big as a DC 10. It did not have a single light on it nor did it make any sound. It caught my eye as I was right beside the window in my room. It was so low that the lights from the streets and buildings illuminated the bottom of it. This event lasted approx: 5-6 seconds. As I mentioned my other room mate dashed across the room but missed it. I thought for sure this would have been in news considering how low it flew. And no I was not drinking, I had two drinks earlier in the evening after our game at 8:00 p.m. If you want to email me feel free, what I have written is 100% true.

              Thank you to the witness for this report.

              I can't thank this witness enough for coming forward and telling me of what he witnessed. This is an important report as it seems to back up a report I received from another witness. That report can be found by clicking on the following URL:

                HBCC UFO Research Recently Reported Sightings



                Port Neches, Texas Football Shaped Craft

                Date: Summer 1956
                Time: 11:00 p.m.

                Number of witnesses: 1
                Number of objects: 1
                Shape of objects: Football shaped.

                Full Description of event/sighting: I was about 5 years old and had no inclinations toward UFOs at all at that age. I was lying in bed on my stomach with my chin on my pillow looking out the window. At that time there were not many trees in the neighborhood except a few pecan trees across the street from my home. The bedroom looked due north.

                I clearly remember seeing a football shaped object drifting very slowly across the northern sky and moving to the east. It exhibited a brown color glow and I recall seeing a few lights around its apex. I watched it slowly move for maybe half a minute.

                In my excitement to have someone else see it, I looked away and woke my brother up. By the time we looked back it was gone.

                Go figure...to this day I can clearly see it in my mind's eye but I haven't a clue what it was!

                Thank you to the witness for the report.

                Rockville, Maryland Unknown Object

                Date: May of 2001
                Time: 10:11 p.m. EST

                I believe I have seen an unidentified flying craft in Rockville, Maryland. I really can't describe it on here, but I can draw.

                It had a cone like shape in the front...L shaped wings but with more of a curve in the corner, and it had blue and yellow flashing lights. I was in my car at a red-light and happen to just glance up. It was at night time and when I glanced up, you could see it for about 2.1 seconds and it flashed twice and it was gone after that. It's like, it disappeared into thin air.

                Additional Information:

                The sighting took place sometime in May of 2001 at around 10:11 p.m. EST. The weather was very clear with a few clouds in the night sky. I am not sure if the moon was out or not.

                The UFO was headed north from where I was. It was directly above me traveling at a super high rate of speed in one direction. I only saw it for about 2.5 seconds. I saw the UFO in flashes. It was like...it was blinking as it traveled. I saw it flash twice or blink twice and then it disappeared into thin air. I looked around to see if anyone else noticed...but I guess they were not looking up or it was traveling too fast and too stealthy for anyone to notice. I just happen to glance up and saw two blinks of it, or two flashes of it and then it was gone. I included a picture that I drew in PAINT to create it. I also included a map of where I saw it as well. The UFO was headed in the same direction as I was. The shape of it, you can see an
                example of it with the enclosed picture. The size....it seemed to be smaller then a commercial airplane from the distance I saw it. The texture seemed like a solid shape and color...I only saw it for about 2.5 seconds. No sound at all.

                The area. Suburbs of Montgomery County Maryland. Populated area, but at 10:11 p.m. at night, no one is hardly on the road. It was flying directly over a major road. Residential area along with a subway station. Fort Mead is not too far away from the area...Walter Reed Army Hospital is not too far from the area as well. It is about 20 min from the White House. It was traveling north (away) from the white house and headed towards Andrews Airforce base, but AAF is pretty far away from the area I saw the UFO.

                I included two attachments for you to review. Again, I saw two flashes of it or two blinks of it...but I saw what I saw and I got a real good look at it, enough to draw it but not give specific details as far as texture and distance and colors...the only two primary stand-out colors I saw were blue and yellow...and those two colors flashed or blinked as the aircraft did.

                Sincerely Yours,

                Thank you to the witness for the excellent report and drawings.

                Phoenix, Arizona Object Moving Around - Video Clip

                Date: June 6th, 2004
                Time: Approx: 4:45 p.m.

                Here is my first day (morning) sighting I remember it well. I was up all night with my new dog and this night I caught 5 or so orbs at night right up till 5 a.m. as you can see by the time stamp. The object was easily visible even though the moon was almost full. This object was coming in from the West and traveled Southeast. There was no wind as you can see from the trees in the close-ups and it was just getting bright out from the sunrise. I am facing South and I noticed the object was really bright and I thought it may be a plane so I didn't tape it until I noticed it paused during flight and than I started to video-tape it. Luckily it passed behind the trees and you can easily see it dart back and forth. I saw it do a U turn and stop dead in its tracks. I video-taped hovering and moving in various circular motions. Back and forth, up and down and so on.

                As you know I have seen and video-taped many of these objects over the past few months but this one sighting shows the movements described so well because of the trees. The object was high but not as high as a satellite. Obviously it's something else because satellites, airplanes, balloons and meteors don't act the way this object did on June 6th, 2004.

                Thank you a ton and I will get back to you shortly.

                Thank you to the witness for these video clips and report.

                Quebec, Canada Triangle And Green Lights

                Date: July 2, 2004
                Time: 4:00 a.m.

                HBCC UFO Research Note: The person who reported the sighting below has had ongoing close encounters on previous occasions.

                This is (removed) again, writing to you in date of July 20th. Something happened again during the night of July 2nd. I must confess that I am getting really tired of this and scared. Mostly I don't understand what's happening.

                I am sending you two pictures that I took with my digital camera. Zoom on the lower part and you'll see a triangle almost identical to the mark I find on my arm from time to time. The other picture shows 2 unidentified objects, greenish in color and facing each other. I took these pictures around 4 o'clock in the morning.

                I was mesmerized by the sky on that night, at that time. I was glued to the window without knowing exactly why. I fell asleep suddenly in the living room after taking the pictures. And again I felt something abnormal happened to me.

                You can publish the pictures and don't hesitate to ask any question about that night.

                Thank you to the witness for the report and photos.

                Date: July 19, 2004
                Time: 8:15 p.m.

                Hi Brian

                I was reading on your site about the lady who was getting good pictures of UFOs taking random shots at the sky. This made me curious, so I had to try it last evening. I made sure before I took a picture there was nothing there I could see. So I took about a dozen pictures of different areas of the sky. Nothing in any of them...except one. I'm sending it to you. I took this yesterday, 07-19-04, about 8:15 p.m. or so. Be for sure, I will be doing this some more.

                Thank you to the witness for the report and photo.

                Indiana, United States Object Seen On Sports Show

                Date: July 17, 2004
                Time: 8:45-9:15

                On Saturday morning of 7-17-04 around 8:45-9:15 (Indiana time) My brother (removed) and I where watching the British open live on TV (ABC). They where doing a close up interview with Mark Calavecchia the 1989 open champion. Mark is sitting on the right hand side of the screen with white blue sky and some cloud cover to his right. At the end of the interview you see a bright white orb (UFO) fly horizontally from behind Mark going from right to left and then arc up thru the clouds and out of the picture. What is amazing about this is the speed at which this object is moving. It was moving so fast that my brother did not see it until I replayed it and showed him the object. Needless to say he was a little surprised at what he saw. Each time I see it, it still blows me away.

                I feel vary strongly that ABC videoed live on TV a UFO. I have the interview saved on my hard drive to my TV satellite. My friends, before they see it tell me I'm crazy but then are amazed at what they see. Have you received any other emails relating to this? If you have not I think it is worthy of looking into.

                Sincerely.

                Thank you to the witness for the report.

                Hi Brian

                I was sitting on my front porch about 2:30 p.m. on 07-20-04 when these two objects flew over my house coming from the north going south. I didn't hear anything as they passed. The top part of the frame is the eave of the house, sorry about the dirt specks on the lens: (Guess if I'd been cleaning the lens, I wouldn't have got this, lol! I want you to know,I really enjoy your site,very interesting..Later my friend.

                Thank you to the witness for the clip and report.

                Phoenix, Arizona Orbs

                Hey Brian. How are you doing? It's me again...and I have more video to send you. This object was coming from the South and heading North and was moving about 5mph horizontally. It then stalled behind the building because I waited for it to come out the other side and it never did. I got in my car and drove in the direction I last saw it and about 3 minutes later I noticed it was very, very high. I did get some more video but it was not very clear.

                The wind that day was West to East and about 10mph with gusts around 20mph. But this object did its own thing regardless of the wind direction. Hope you enjoy.

                Talk to you soon and thank you for your time as always.

                Thank you to the witness for the clip and report.

                Phoenix, Arizona More Objects

                Date: July 24, 2004
                Time: 1:20 -1:50 p.m.

                I have noticed for the last month or so that around 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. I have been seeing the same orbs at or around the same exact area in downtown Phoenix on Saturdays. Well today was no exception...It is a clear day today and the winds are coming in at a constant 10-15mph from the South. I go to the roof of my parking garage 6 floors up and decided to check out the sky only because in the previous weeks I have seen something and video-taped it so I figured I should see what happens. At first I don't see anything and think that I am wasting my time when I see out of the corner of my eye a white orb(s).

                It is heading to the Northeast about 10mph and is approximately 1500ft. high. I decided to video-tape this object and also take pics. But when I put the video camera down to pick up the digital camera the object disappeared by the time the camera turned on. A minute or so goes by and I call a friend here who also has the same hobby or interests and describe to him what I saw when out of nowhere the object came back and is heading in my direction. I video-taped this and noticed it was going against the wind (Southwest)and descending at a slow rate. I decided again to take pictures and as I am picking up the digital camera I see these two strings of orbs float down by the other object. These objects were side by side and it looked like there were 8-10 objects in each bunch. They were multicolored with reds, white, orange, blue and there was a distortation around the objects like they were under water in the sky. At first it was really hard to focus then I finally got in on them and they were changing shapes and colors and barely moving kind of meandering in the general area.

                They were going against the wind (Southwest) and ascending very slowly. I was on the phone with my friend describing everything I saw this way I can verify my sighting and I know and he knows that I am not seeing things or BSing him. Besides I had to tell someone because by the time they went behind the building I had to run down 6 flights of stairs to try and get
                them back in view. I did get them but they were starting to go through a thin haze and I couldn't focus in on them anymore. The sighting started about 1:15 and I couldn't see them anymore by 1:50. These are the weirdest objects I have ever seen. They were side by side the whole time as if shadowing each other. Well I can't tell you how exciting this is for me and when you see the video you will get excited too. Thank you as always and I will call you soon.

                Thank you to the witness for the report and video clips.

                HBCC UFO Research Recently Reported Sightings South Oxford, UK Date: September 1968 I was walking approx 100 yards to off license. I saw a bright star

                  HBCC UFO Research Recently Reported Sightings



                  South Oxford, UK

                  Date: September 1968

                  I was walking approx 100 yards to off license. I saw a bright 'star' moving slowly to the left, stop, move left, stop, after purchasing cigarettes, the light was still there. When I arrived home I called out my wife and we both witnessed it coming towards us to within outskirts of Oxford City, it stopped for a minute and then it returned to original area. I have to say that I later worked out it's position as close as possible to Raf Benson (operational) but we can both verify only one constant light and no audibles.

                  Thank you to the witness for this report.

                  I saw that true story fire in the sky and I started wondering about that night where did all that time go, so I never said a word to my sister. I just gave her that movie to watch and that's when we started asking each other what we remember, we both want to get hypnotized to see what really happened. I use to have dreams of being in a ship and midgets that's all for now but that was not the only time the last time for me was in 97 next time I will share that story if you need more information my sister will also share what she remembers till then take care.

                  Bushey South/East Of Watford, UK

                  Date: 1975/76

                  A light had been reported in local paper near Hertfordshire, the following night I was taking the dog for walk when I saw what I presumed to be the same light, reddish glow moving beyond the town of Watford and in the same area of the previous sighting. It was about the same description which was given and it took some 10 minutes to go out of sight. Although I fetched my 10x40 glasses, I could only see the reddish constant glow and it's constant speed. It wasn't that high and I saw a light aircraft seemingly fly in front of it, not unusual. There was a light aircraft airfield close by. The only comment I can make is that someone else saw it!! It was definitely not a balloon.

                  Thank you to the witness for this report.

                  Edmonton, Alberta Cigar shaped Craft Hovering Over Homes

                  Date: Winter of 1985
                  Time: Earlier to 9:00 p.m.

                  The man called me today and filed a report of an object he witnessed many years back. He said his experience took place when he was eight or nine years old and at the families home back in the winter of 1984 . They lived at the south west corner of the city right on the fringe, which looked out over the fields which were also in that area. From where they were located the fields stretched all the way down to the airport which was a good distance away. He was doing his homework, and he believes it was either a Friday or Saturday evening. Since his folks were going out that night and being a young boy he really wasn't into doing his homework. He was gazing out the large bay window when he saw in the distance over the fields a light that would rise up from the ground into the air at approximately an altitude of a few hundred meters, then drop back down to the ground. This witness continued to watch this play out doing the same thing over and over for about 30 minutes or so.

                  Later that night when the babysitter was at the home and the young fellow was in bed sleeping, he awoke as he had to use the washroom which was across the hallway. Once he left the hallway heading back towards his bedroom, he again noticed something unusual out one of the large windows. At approximately 9:00 p.m. on this winter night, the sky being dark with the odd cloud which was visible and gray in color. He noticed what appeared to be a large cigar shaped craft hovering over his home and the neighbors. It was apparent the object was rather large in size. It was the faint outline which was really visible and there were a number of purple lights on it. These lights were not flashing, just giving off a steady purple colored light. For a minute there he thought he might have been dreaming, so he went down stairs to tell the babysitter, but she did not believe him and told the young boy to get back to bed. When he arrived back up stairs the object had disappeared. The witness mentioned that this experience has stuck with him over all these years and he certainly will not be forgetting it.

                  He did tell his parents but didn't exactly believe him and thought he was just trying to get out of doing his homework that evening.

                  Thank you to the witness for this interesting report and for calling.

                  HBCC UFO Note: I wonder if the light which was rising up and dropping back down had something to do with the sighting of the cigar shaped craft over his home. if anyone else who may read this story has seen something like this over Edmonton back in 1984, would you be kind enough to write to me and fill me in on what you saw.

                  North Hemel Hempstead, UK

                  Date: June 1999

                  I stood outside smoking, close to some hedging and looking up when I saw a number of bright flashes, like a strobe light. It was over a distance of 2 feet at arms length and they went from intense and then fading to nothing in a second or two. The sky was clear and it was so obviously not an aircraft, but possibly space debris burning up etc. I called my son and we saw nothing else, but some 15 minutes later I went back out and I was observing what was probably an aircraft going behind our house. As it emerged from the other side I was aware of a flashing from above me to below the level of sight (all in a second or two) I have no doubt it was the same quick flashing object I had just seen and I have absolutely no idea what it was. What I can say is ,I've witnessed many meteorites, shooting stars, satellites in over 30 years and I'm 100% sure this was neither.

                  Additional Information:

                  We live in North Hemel Hempstead and Luton airport is some 10 miles north/east of us. Can I just explain, we have a lot of aircraft directly over head, some extremely low. We also have a good view of London's Heathrow 'stacking' South of Hemel Hempstead. At night time I've counted up to 8 in the 'stacking' area at any one time, believe me. What with being reared in a village south/east of Oxford where we had unique grandstand views of RAF and USAF aircraft. We were 2 miles from RAF base and overlooked 2 USAF bases and seeing amongst others B4, B52, and for a while the B36.!! We DEFINITELY know all the angles on aircraft, day and night. Hope I've been helpful. Before I close I'll mention that we have both observed a satellite flashing red every few seconds, (we've seen many satellites over the years) and also an object crossing the sky which fluctuated from an increasingly brightness and then decreasing to nothing and starting the process again farther down the sky. I've always thought it was space debris slowly spinning and reflecting, but who knows??

                  Thank you to the witness for this report.

                  Motherwell Scotland Angel Hair ?

                  HBCC UFO Note: I found the picture to be very interesting. Although no object was witnessed by the person who took the photos, one can't rule out anything here. Some checking into the date and area might reveal a sighting for that time of the year.

                  Date: September 2002

                  Hi Brian,

                  Listened to your interview with Jeff Rense for Friday July 23, and heard you mention you were interested in other phenomena etc. Great show by the way.

                  I suppose you have heard of Angel hair in relation to the UFO phenomena? Well I have some pictures that were taken about 4 years ago of some trees near my home. They were covered in what looked like and what I have heard described, Angel hair. I personally touched the stuff and it did seem to just melt away. Let me say that in no way did it resemble a spiders web. Some portions were like glass to look at, as it clung to the trees.When it was touched, it became almost like very fine thread. The pictures were taken at night with a digital camera and flash. The flash seems to show up the stuff very well, as it was very reflective.

                  The first time I noticed it was when I was walking the dog and the Moon was shining. The Moon showed up the material very well. Remember these trees were covered in the stuff. Around four trees in a row. There are many other trees along the path, but they were not affected. The material was not in any way sticky. I have never seen this sort of thing before and was very surprised. I have observed the trees around for a long time now and it has never reoccurred. Unfortunately I never observed any unusual object in the vicinity. I don't know if anyone else did.

                  If the pictures are any use to you I will send them. Have to look them out from my collection of disks.

                  It may be rather different from your usual sightings, so please let me know if you want them.

                  Regards,

                  Additional Information:

                  Hi Brian,

                  I have attached the pictures for you.

                  Notice how some of the material seems to shine on the branches. Hope you can zoom in enough and keep some quality. I tried to keep the picture sizes down to around 200k.

                  I found the pictures folder and it is marked for the year 2002. I remember that it was a very warm Summer over here in Scotland that year, and lasted well into September and October. I believe I took the pictures in late September 2002.

                  I live in the town of Motherwell Scotland and this is where I took the pictures.

                  All the best,

                  Thank you very much to the witness for sharing the pictures and the report.

                  Phoenix, Arizona V Shaped Object Caught On Film

                  July 11, 2004
                  Time: 4:33 a.m.

                  These pictures are from the night before I took the other "V" shaped object. Again the camera is on a tripod and it seems to me like the object is rotating. I usually have the video camera with me but since I was in the middle of something earlier that night(using the camera to capture other shots) I didn't want to risk losing this object because I would have to fast forward the tape in the video camera and I didn't think I would have the time, which I wouldn't have. It was July 11th at 4:33a.m. is when these pictures were taken. I was up because I needed to use the restroom and because of all the things I have recorded I always check out the skies even if I am dead tired. It pays off once in a while. This object was to the South of me and I
                  saw it immediately because it was exceptionally bright and it was a yellowish-reddish color and seemed to be flashing and rotating when viewed through the binoculars. Very exciting. Your the greatest and I mean it and so do the other guys in Az. We are the three kings of UFOs in Az., for now anyway.

                  Thank you to the witness for these pictures and the report.

                  Phoenix, Arizona "V' Shaped Object Seen Again

                  Date: July 13, 1004
                  Time: Approx: 2:00 a.m.

                  These 2 lights surprised me in more than the obvious way. I went out in the backyard like I usually do if I happen to wake up for a bathroom break. I saw Venus rising and I was scanning the sky for other objects and saw nothing. My dog was in the house barking uncontrollably probably because I was outside and he was inside so I let him out. But when I came back outside I saw a bright light by Venus. It was huge. I ran inside to get my video camera and when I came back out I was surprised to see it was still there so I started video taping. As luck would have it the warning light for the battery came on and I realized I only had a few minutes MAX to get this orb taped. I left the camera on when I went to bed at 2 a.m.. I had
                  been working on my computer capturing video clips from other sightings till I went to bed.

                  Now the interesting thing is I panned back towards the end of the video clip and didn't realize there was an even brighter "V" shaped object above my head. I just realized this tonight 2 weeks later and that is why I am sending you this. It is orange in color and is the brightest thing I've ever seen. Unfortunately the battery died only moments into the taping and all I have is 40 seconds. I will send you the clip and the captured frame.

                  Thank you to the witness for the report.

                  Portland, Oregon V Formation Of Lights

                  Date: July 19 or 20th, 2004
                  Time: 3:45 a.m.

                  Full Description of event/sighting: I was burning small limbs off my magnolia tree when I saw a V formation traveling from south to north. There were about 9 objects in the formation. They sailed through the sky with no sound. The objects were like behind a sheer cloud with aura's around them...they traveled slowly so I could observe them...anybody else see them???

                  Additional Information:

                  The lights I saw were all orange. The color reminded me of a creamsicle. There seemed to be a slight fog around the discs which made the orange a lightish color with a white aura around them. The night was clear with some far off clouds, no where near the lights. When I first caught glimpse of them I was going to go into my house. I caught the light and thought to myself that it was a search light. Then it hit me that it was 3:45 a.m. I had been out there for hours and there was no light in the sky. I stepped back and saw about 9 round discs glowing through a mist of fog. They were in the formation of a V. I sat down and watched as they sailed through the sky slowly. I was in awe. They sailed over my house from the south to the north taking up a good part of the sky, as they did not seem real far away. Since there was a mist around them I could not make out anything in detail. I could see the discs glowing through the mist.

                  It was beautiful. since I was in awe of the lights I did not think to count them. I just wanted to watch them. I sit in my back yard and watch the skies as often as I can and look for anything. I wanted to call the Airforce to see if there were any sightings besides myself but got hold of the airport instead. So I just let it go. But it has been on my mind alot. There was no noise what so ever. The lights did not flash and the discs stayed in formation of the "V". I do not live too far from the airbase or the airport, but still not close. Maybe 10 miles. There were no aircraft in the area. I stayed out for about 10 minutes after I saw them. I just wanted to know if anyone else saw them. I thought this was a site in Portland, or when I wrote to you.

                  Thank you to the witness for the great report.

                  South Alabama,USA Egg Shaped Object Caught On Film

                  Brian,

                  Date: July 26, 2004
                  Time: 5:20 a.m.

                  Yesterday morning (7-26-04) I awoke shortly after 5:00 a.m. to get ready for work. Usually I wouldn't go outside this early but I had to get my uniforms out of the car . Upon getting out of bed I stumbled to the door (still half asleep you know) and made my way onto the deck. Even with the thick sleep in my eyes I noticed the ball of light in the sky to my NE and I thought " that's odd" as I walked to the car. After getting my uniforms out of the car I made way back to the deck still watching the odd hovering light in the sky . I also noticed something else....there was not a single star visible in the sky .....cloudy. I started to blow it off but I knew I would never forgive myself so after returning inside I grabbed my camera and tripod , stepped back out on the deck and took three shots of the object , and went back inside to get ready for work. The object was gone at 6:30 when I left for work. This morning I downloaded the pictures and wanted to share them with you .The full size pictures are 2048 x 1536 but for the sake of this message I included the first at 25% actual size.

                  Thank you to the witness for the report and pictures.

                  Picayune, Mississippi Oblong, Or Tubular, And Shining Silvery

                  Date: July 27, 2004
                  Time: 7:55 p.m.

                  Tonight,at approximately 7:55 p.m, here, in Picayune, Mississippi, as I was exiting a store in a strip shopping center, I noticed the moon directly in front of me. It was sunset, and the sky was still light, and the light of the setting sun to the right/west was dimming.Since I was walking directly toward the moon, which was to my estimation, visible in the south, I was looking straight at it, and immediately, two objects caught my attention. One was larger, oblong, or tubular, and shining silvery, moving high up, in an even line smoothly and swiftly going in a southwest direction. The other which seemed similarly shaped, was a little higher or appeared smaller, was criss-crossing going in the opposite direction. As I was looking up, two more women came out to their car, in the parking lot, and one lady said, "Do you see that?"

                  I waited to see if her opinion was the same as mine before saying that it did not appear to be an airplane since there was no contrail following it. She did not see the second object at first until I pointed it out. She then said: "It's a UFO." I agreed. As we watched the larger one going SW, it glowed a bright silvery color as it neared the sunset reflection. Shortly afterwards, it disappeared. The three of us saw and came to the same conclusion that it was not airplanes. The larger of the two had to be pretty large since it was visible for at least 7 minutes, and we had no trouble seeing it as it moved from us. When the sunset reflected off of it, it pretty much assured us, that that would not happen on an airplane at that height. Maybe it wasn't the sunset reflection, but it appeared to reflect the sunset, while the rest of the sky was blue/grey and the western sky was colored. The time on my receipt from the store was 19:45, and I stayed in the store for a couple of minutes. My watch may have been just about 5 minutes fast, so My estimation is that it was approx:. 7:55 p.m., Tuesday, July 27,2004.New Orleans is more or less SW of where it appeared headed (the larger one).


                  This was my first sighting of this type of object.The lady said it was her's too.

                  Really strange....... Take care

                  Thank you to the witness for this report.

                  South West Edmonton, Alberta 8 Object In The Sky

                  Date: July 28, 2004
                  Time: 0130-0330

                  Number of witnesses: 1
                  Number of objects: 10
                  Shape of objects: disc like.

                  Full Description of event/sighting: I am a security guard and I was on my shift. At about 0130 I was walking outside the building I was guarding and saw an odd object in the west sky. I continued to observe. It had violent flashing red and yellow lights and was disc shaped. It was hovering in the same spot for about 10 minutes. Then it would start to move violently left to right up and down and diagonally like it was shaking. This continued on for about another 30 minutes. I went back inside and completed some work then went back out for another look. Now I saw 8 in total stretched across the sky doing the exact same thing. I started to get a bit curious and I went to the front of the building for a look. I saw 2 more but these ones were alot closer and lower than the other ones. One started to get really close and was about 5 to 10 km away and roughly 100 ft in air. It moving west and getting lower and lower. It went behind a small hill and it looked like it could of landed. At this point I was a bit nervous and notified the police. By the time they arrived the sky was getting light and you couldn't see much so I looked like a nutcase.

                  Thank you to the witness for the report.

                    Lethbridge, Alberta Three Disks Flying In V Formation

                    Date: Late July 1976

                    My sighting of UFOs has baffled me for more than 25 years. The first sighting was in 1976 late July I seen three disks flying in V formation. They were grey in color with a touch of lead. The size of the objects was 30 meters by 20 meters. I scale seemed larger as they hovered 20 meters ahead of me when I notice them. I was on a dirt bike going east as I approached the crest on the hill near my friends house I looked up and seen the three disks they were going northwest in formation. I turned to look at my friends location they were behind me coming over the hill were in shock and stopped I speed towards the UFOs was directly below the objects. I stopped my bike and heard nothing. I turned to towards the UFOS and began chase. The chase didn't last more than 1 minute the closer I got the further they moved silently towards the Belly Buttes lactated on the Blood Reserve and disappeared over the horizon several minutes later. Later that night we heard on the radio there was a report of an Large orange ball of light appeared and speed off into the sky from someones back yard in Lethbridge.

                    Thank you to the witness for the report.

                    Lethbridge, Alberta Dozens Of Objects Moving

                    Date: 1977

                    I spent many nights on my parent's roof star glazing. And one night year later in Lethbridge late October I was about to see something truly unbelievable dozens of what appeared to be stars began to change their positions very fast in the night sky they stopped on a dime and move very fast to other positions in different formations. This lasted for a few minutes then they just disappeared. the next night I took a friend and we waited no longer then 5 minutes then the same objects appeared out of nowhere and began to dance in formation again this lasted for 20 minutes then stopped again we waited for hours and nothing happened again I was looking at the night sky for months after that but never seen them again Until 1982 and 1992 .

                    Thank you to the witness for the report.

                    Woodbridge, Ontario Unusual Bright Light

                    Date: 2001

                    I had a telephone call from an fellow who told me of a sighting his two brothers had back in 2001. The two brothers had just come home from seeing a movie, they were standing on the families driveway talking to one another when one looked up and saw an extremely bright light and of course pointed this out to his brother. I was told the light had moved across the night sky rather quickly and thought it was a shooting star because it disappeared really fast. The brothers thought it was pretty neat seeing this and as they watched the light reappeared in another part of the sky but closer to the horizon. It then moved in the opposite way from when it was shooting downward. The light moved to the right, then left and then came to a complete stop. From it's stationary position it then shot straight upwards and disappeared. It was the last time they observed it. It was a steady light, nothing flashing on it at all. It never left a trail behind it at anytime in the sighting.

                    Thank you to the person for this report.

                    Louisiana, USA Lights And Mississippi Unknown Over My Home

                    I have had several experiences with lights in the past several years. I lived in Louisiana when I first saw the lights. Maybe "orbs"..? I don't know what they were. I can best describe them as balls of light/energy which streaked across the sky at close range. The first time I saw them they were near rooftop of the building where I lived which was a single story building. I thought they might have been roman candles, but bigger and not colored. They flashed across the yard, over the rooftop and vanished, fizzled out. No sound, smell, nothing...They had to be at least 20 feet off the ground. I can't say exactly, but not way up in the sky. Then a year of so later, at another location in (near New Orleans) Louisiana, I, my son, and another friend saw them one night. Same thing. Close to ground, fizzled out. Like streaking light in a ball. Hazy, not solid.Fast. Silent.
                    And in Mississippi, near here, I saw them on two occasions. Same thing.

                    Interesting thought...When I saw the L.A.ones witnessed by my son and friend, the thought came to me that they reminded me of almost like a flash bulb going off on an old camera. Not that it was a direct flash, but that it might be photographing us..some surveillance thing.

                    We also had something fly over our house when we moved to MS. 6 yrs. ago. We lived in a wooded area, somewhat secluded. About 2:00 a.m. something buzzed the house, with a big "whoosh". Then the shrubs beside the house were bending over and swaying back and forth for a few minutes. A strange vibration and sound followed causing the glass in one window to rattle. I got the sound on my camcorder. Unfortunately, it was too dark to get the image of the shrubs which I tried to film rocking and rolling. The bad thing is that the tape cartridge spinning can be heard somewhat. If someone with the right equipment would like to enhance the sound, they could get the "whuh,whuh,whuh,whuh...." sound I think. It was a vibrational sound. If you want to know more about that I can write it later. This was about 6 yrs ago. I reported it to some UFO investigators. I can't remember their name. I may still have the letter somewhere.

                    We don't know what to make of all this... I personally think that with the frequency of sightings, crop circles, etc., we may soon see some unbelievable events occurring very near...That they are not hiding , and becoming more obvious. Those craft do NOT fly themselves. Intelligence is behind them. What form of Intelligence???

                    Additional Information:

                    Q. - Could you please describe the area in which you made the sighting. Is it near an airport? An Air Force Base? A military or research installation of any kind?

                    A. - Yes, about 5 miles South off Interstate Hwy.59 is Stennis Space Center. Near there is an airport. East of here is Keesler AFB, Biloxi, Ms. about a 50 minute drive. There is also an Airport at Gulfport, Ms.near Stennis. Stennis has several facilities on it's site. http://www.gulfcoast.org/gpt/ http://www.keesler.af.mil/ http://maps.yahoo.com/py/maps.py?Pyt=Tmap&&csz=Picayune+MS+&Get%A0Map=Get+Map Looking at the map- the location where we saw the object was on Memorial Blvd.It was near the Interstate 59. Stennis is in the lower right corner of the map to the Eastat Nicholson, Hwy 607. Also in Chalmette, La, a suburb east of New Orleans, is Michoud which is a space facility. http://www.lockheedmartin.com/michoud/

                    Q. - Were there any wings, or anything like this visible on the craft ?
                    A. - Absolutely no wings or blinking lights or anything visible.

                    Q. - As it moved, did it make any unusual maneuvers or did it follow a straight flight path ?

                    A. - Straight path,moving swift and steadily.

                    Q. - I am not 100 per cent on how far it was away, but did you or the others hear any sound ?

                    A. - It was high up, did not hear any sound. Definitely no contrails what so ever.

                    Q. - Was the sky perfectly clear or were there clouds in the area ?

                    A. - The sky was clear,no clouds visible.Maybe way up there was some haze,not cloudy.It was practically dusk.

                    Q. - Also did you happen to notice any aircraft in the skies just after the sighting ?

                    A. - Yes, on my way home,I saw a plane. It did not appear to be a military jet.It was a few minutes afterwards.Maybe l0 minutes later.

                    If you can think of anything else would you please add it to the follow up.

                    A. - The only thing is that when the sunset or whatever it was reflected on the object for a few seconds, it was a beautiful reflecting light. It then seconds later disappeared. It was almost like when a mirror is reflecting the sun, and moved quickly away. The object just appeared at a steady pace, moving more horizontally than upwardly climbing. I cannot say how high it was. It was high enough that a clear and concise view was not possible, but it was highly visible.

                    The incident in Spring 1998 I think it was..I will find it. Pretty sure I still have it.

                    Ok, here goes..We had just moved into a house which had huge live oak trees on the east side of the driveway. About 80-90 year old trees--big! We had also just gotten a Panasonic camcorder. So my then 13 yr.old was having fun filming and using the camera. I was not too familiar with it. The house was in the country, lots of pine woods here, and very dark outside at night. On two sides of the house were very tall pine and some oak trees, on the East side were three huge oaks. The yard had huge (maybe 5-6 foot.) azalea bushes, some of which were directly under the kitchen window and pressed up to the house(brick). For a few nights before the Whoosh thing, my son said he saw "lights" in the big oaks. Hmmmnn..I thought maybe some spiders or night bugs which were iridescent. I did not see the lights. There were no street lights or house lights in that area. It was very dark at night there. I passed it off, maybe he saw lights, maybe, not.. So I said, next time you see them, call me. We then took the video camera and waited for the lights to appear in the trees...Nothing., Then, the next night..some little glowing lights..which I still thought might be some type bugs or insects. They were not fireflies. They appeared to be going in a circular spinning motion in the trees. Ok, I am not convinced that these were not bugs..So we just waited and watched.

                    This particular night, my son had gone to bed. So I decided to go to the kitchen where it was dark and watch with the camera in case the lights appeared. I had windows in a corner (both sides) above the counter. So I could see very well outside and it was next to the driveway where the oaks were. I was getting a little bored and just about to call it a night. All of a sudden, this loud" Whoosh" comes out of nowhere. No wind blowing, clear night, and the whoosh comes over the roof and seemed to come right over the corner of the kitchen where I was . It seemed practically on top of the roof. Close.

                    My first thoughts were "tornado"..But there was no bad weather that night. Then "little tornado" dirt devil or whatever those things are.. I must tell you it scared the heck out of me! I had the camera on the counter, so I hurried and turned it on. I did not want to use the light to attract attention and all there was outside was a dim outside light on the front of the house about 12 ft. to the right. It barely lit up much area. At this point, I was trying to film the azalea bushes which were violently rocking and swaying. The one right beside the window was going left and right bending way down. The ones about 4 ft. away were too. BUT, the big trees in the front yard, about 25 or so ft. away were not. It was as if a "downward draft" was concentrated at the corner of the house where it whooshed. On the opposite side of the kitchen was a small single pane window which had had a small window unit ac. The glass was not snug, but it was fixed in a frame. Within seconds or a minute after the whoosh, the glass started to rattle rapidly. Also, came a sound from outside which was like "whuh, whuh, whuh, whuh"..Like a droning, and vibrational sound. It lasted several minutes.

                    I was disappointed that there was not enough light to get the bushes on film, although you can make out some movement. It's pretty vague, though. But, the sound of the whuh whuh can be heard faintly. We left shortly after that occurred for vacation.

                    Thank you to the witness for the reports. This witness will remain unknown !

                    Duberger-Les Saules Park, Quebec

                    Date: June 20, 2004
                    Time: 11:40 pm

                    Location of Sighting: Duberger-Les Saules Park
                    Number of witnesses: 1 witness
                    Number of Object: 1 object
                    Shape of object: Lights: 1 yellow, 1 brilliant flashing light, 1 white light.

                    I was meditating near the St. Charles river when I saw a craft (I thought it was a helicopter) flying low just above the trees. It surveyed the whole parks ystematically. It took a sharp turn at the western limit of the park, which made me think it was a drone. It was 2 to 3 meters long, silent. When it flew over me, my eyes started to sting as if it was spraying something over the area. What have I been exposed to? Why?

                    A few days before I was at the same spot for a relaxing meditation and I felt like I was under observation. Intuitively I scrutinized the opposite shore and after a few minutes I detected a dark figure among the trees. I stared at this presence intensely for a few minutes. At some point it went backward from the shore towards the woods. When it reached the walking path it suddenly "ran" out towards the right. It took me a few minutes of introspection to make sure this was real.

                    I don't know what the "drone" sprayed or why. Was it to get this thing out?. If so, I don't know what I was exposed to. If someone can tell me what this thing was, I'd like to know. I'm worried.

                    Thank you to the witness for the report.

                    Drumheller, Alberta Bright Light After Thunderstorm

                    Date: July 19, 2004
                    Time: Approx: 10:00 p.m.

                    A close friend of mind who resides in Houston, B.C. rang me up and said he had a story for me and did I want to hear it. I said yes of course so the fellow came up to our home and we sat and he told me what the two of them saw while on holiday in Drumheller, Alberta.

                    The couple both had some time off from work and had made plans to drive to Saskatchewan for a quick visit. After their stay was over they started back and were driving through the province of Alberta taking in a few of the sights. At one point the skies were turning dark from the cloud cover so they decided to stay at the small community of Drumheller, Alberta. They pulled into a campground to get a spot to stay for the night then went and looked around the town. As the evening approached the weather had turned really bad as the thunder storms rolled through the area. They got out of their camper and moved into the cab of the truck so they could sit and watch the lightening as it was so intense. My friend said at one point a blue lightening bolt shot down from above and hit the highway which of course lit up the entire area. He said it was a bad storm and amazing to watch.

                    Eventually as they watched the storm passed over and at the back end of it some stars were peeking through the cloud cover. All of a sudden they spotted a very bright light which seems to be falling towards the earth. They first thought it may have been a falling star, but due to the length of time they observed it (approx: 10 seconds) they started questioning themselves about it. The bright light seemed to fall straight down and as it went through or behind a cloud and became visible again they lost sight of it on the horizon. My friend explained that there was a dike of sorts which blocked their view so they were not able to see if the light actually hit the ground, or whatever became of it. He was so puzzled that the fellow got out of his truck and climbed up the back of his camper to get a better view. He was able to see over the dike which had blocked there view, but at this point he saw nothing at all.

                    Thank you to the witnesses for their report.

                    Peoria, Arizona Oval

                    Date: July 25, 2004
                    Time: 3:30 a.m.

                    Number of witnesses: 2
                    Number of objects: 1
                    Shape of objects: Oval

                    Full Description of event/sighting: Hello! I found your website from yahoo. Thought you might be able to help us. We are not sure what we saw that night. But at first it appeared to be a very bright star. We were driving home from L.A. and spotted this bright star in the sky about 40 miles from our home in Peoria. We both focused in on this bright light which we believed at the time was a helicopter or an airplane. As we got closer to home the bright light appeared to be moving very slowly to the North. We parked our car in our driveway and continued to watch this bright light. At this time it appeared to be hovering over the valley. My mother (who has always been very skeptical) and I were able to focus better now. The light was very bright and very close to us. We began to realize there was no possible way it was a star. It was an oval shape that the light was shining out of very brightly. There appeared to be a red light coming from the center of it. It began to maneuver very slowly in different directions. I have never been so excited and scared in my life. At one point my mom and I were covered in Goosebumps. I took a picture of it with my digital camera. When I zoom in on the first few photos the object appears to be in the shape of a red ball. But several pictures later it appears very white and in the shape of a pill and in another photo it is red and in the shape of a parallel oval. We are still not sure what we saw but I thought I would tell you about it and you could let me know. Thanks alot for your time. Sincerely.

                    Thank you so much to the witness for this report.

                    Phoenix, Arizona More Amazing Footage Taken Of An Unknown ?

                    Date: July 29, 2004
                    Time: Daytime

                    HBCC UFO Research Note: I would like people to know that I have been talking to the gentleman for a while now and he got caught up in something he never expected to find himself. Right in the middle of the UFO phenomena ! This fellow is an excellent eye witness, he is a very credible witness who is seeing some remarkable things over the Phoenix area. I would also like to pint out, he and two other have been filming objects for sometime, getting some excellent still shots and footage. I also would like to point out that a bright flash was seen just before the object was observed. If the flash was associated to the object it is hard to say for certain. But another interesting point to this story. Also one other interesting point that the witness mentions, and that is some 30 to 50 people stopped to look up and must have wondered what this object was. When anyone takes a little extra time to look up they might be rewarded with a remarkable sight. I and all of the fellows who are catching these objects on film would like others from the Phoenix area to come forward to tell of what they have been witness to. If you have seen something recently or from the past each report is very important and we would very much appreciate hearing the stories. Thank you, Brian Vike Director HBCC UFO Research.

                    Hello Brian. I am beside myself. I am lost for words. I just can't tell you enough how unbelievable the video I captured today was. I woke up today feeling great and had a feeling I was going to see something awesome. I work in downtown Phoenix which is South of me about 15 miles or so and on my way to work I saw a flash in the sky so bright I had to pull over and see what it was. I had my camera with me, as you know, and I looked around for about 10 minutes and saw nothing. I thought I might have seen a reflection off someone's windshield or something reflective, so I continued on to work. I called a friend to tell him about the flash in the sky and since we have both seen them he agreed that I wasn't seeing things and it was probably something entering our atmosphere or our dimension. The only reason we are talking about other dimensions is because of all the sightings and shooting stars we have been seeing lately at night. So the thought is out there to ponder. Who knows right?

                    I mean, last night I saw 3 orbs, 6 flashes, and 13 shooting stars. Sounds crazy but it's true. My friend came over to skywatch
                    (the guy who taped the Estrella Lights) with me for the first time last night, saw the flashes and shootings stars and the orbs and he couldn't believe it either. Anyway, back to today. I am parking in the parking garage at work, 4 floors up, and in my line of sight (west) a white cluster of orbs heading in my general direction tumbling and turning. Also it was hovering, weaving, moving about, changing shape and was glowing from the inside making a reddish hue. Even when it hovered it was rotating.

                    Through the viewfinder it looked white because it is a black and white screen you see through but when I played it back it was a reddish color. I moved East in the garage to get to another open area to tape it and I easily spotted it. It was only 1500ft.-2000ft. in altitude, no breeze and I have buildings in the background for a great reference. The object looked like a bunch of orbs clustered together and it looked like the letter "E" but without the center line which makes it look like a thick "C" but with edges or a right angle-shaped design like armrests on a chair. It could also look like the letter "U". It went in all directions causing me to chase after it on foot and the object never changed altitude yet. You can tell because when it was
                    in sight with the buildings I used the windows to determine how many floors it was in line with.

                    It went behind one building and when I spotted it the object went back where it came from out of sight behind the same building. I found it again behind that building and it moved behind another building. It went back and forth several times and this went on for about 1/2 hour. The people walking around at lunchtime on the street (sidewalk) noticed me videotaping this and about 30-50 people gathered around to watch in the 100 degree heat. I could hear someone saying that they have been watching it because I was watching it and that it has been hanging around a long time. I didn't think about talking to those people to get their comments on tape but that would have helped make the story even more important. Not that this isn't big but having other people seeing this at the same time is newsworthy. Especially during the day. Anyway, I went back up to the roof of my parking garage and it was right there up in the sky hovering around 1500ft.-2000ft.. I zoomed in really close and as I am panning back another white, but smaller orb, went right by the cluster at a fast rate.

                    I didn't have the tripod with me this time so the video is shaky but the objects are easy to see. No doubt about it, there are 2 objects in the area and I taped it. It's unbelievable! I kept on taping for about 10 min. more but the object started to get farther away and the taller buildings were in the way plus I was real late to work. It was heading towards Mesa which is Southeast from my location picking up speed and ascending.. I could have went all the way to my car and probably followed it again but I was out in my work clothes in 100 plus degrees with humidity, for 45min, sweating so bad that I had to buy a new shirt at the store so I can go to work which I was going to be 1 hour late for. I hope someone else reports this because the video is unbelievable and it should have some importance due to the location of the object and the time it was out there
                    and the other people seeing it. Also the fact that another object flew right by it at a high rate of speed. Good Good stuff and I will be sending clips to you tonight.

                    Thank You and say hello to all.

                    Thank you to the witness for these pictures and the report.

                    Post Falls, Idaho Black Object

                    Date: July 30, 2004
                    Time: 8:00 or 8:01 p.m.

                    Number of witnesses: 1
                    Number of objects: 1
                    Shape of objects: Oval

                    Full Description of event/sighting: I just got done seeing a object on my back porch as I went out onto it I looked up as I do alot. And I noticed a black object that was moving at a slow speed, like slower than a Jumbo Jet but at that same height that planes fly maybe a little lower. I watched it as it flew directly over me at the same altitude and then it seemed as it got over me to change directions a little to the North-East a little bit. I ran into my house to find my binoculars it took me like 30 seconds to find them, I ran outside to see it closer but it completely was gone? I was so mad because I knew it was flying slow and it was low and so black and obvious against the blue sky with hardly no clouds either. I searched the sky very good and after I had got my binoculars but there was no sign of the black object, and the way it was going either North Eastern. Maybe someone today will have noticed this as well.

                    Additional Information:

                    Hello Brian thanks for wanting to know more about what I saw.

                    The Shape was a Diamond shape. The size was at least the size of a small plane size like a twin engine plane. And the distance was actually low, lower than the height that commercial Jumbo Jets usually fly at it was a little bit lower. Ok the color is what was the weirdest thing it was "pitch black" color all over it, no other color was visible on it. The texture I could not make out but as I focused my eyes I noticed a disturbance around it as if a energy field was around it disturbing the air around it. And no sound. Ok the area was in my backyard on my back porch I live in Post Falls, Idaho which is near Spokane, Wa. Post Falls is the first town you come into after crossing the Washington/Idaho border. The nearest Air Force base is located there in Spokane,Wa. The nearest airport is in Spokane. I noticed no aircraft at all afterwards I watched to see if a military jet or helicopter would fly in the area but nothing did.

                    No Flashing lights at all on it just a Black Diamond. I watched it for 1 minute or a minute and a half until I ran inside to grab
                    the binoculars and after noticing the field of energy that surrounded it. I made sure it wasn't a Bird I looked to see wings and I made sure it wasn't a balloon ether. So before I ran inside I watched it for a minute or 2. Ok it flew directly north until it got to over my area of Post Falls when it got directly over where I was my house it changed directions a slight bit to North-East. Last of all no tail at all. After it was gone I even ran into my front yard to see if maybe I could see it out there, nope it was completely gone there was no clouds during the time I saw this thing too which is weird for it to just disappear. Well I went right away onto your site Brian and reported it and then went into the archives to see if maybe recently someone else has seen this same thing sure enough July 10, 2004 Portland,Oregon that's right next to me this guy took pictures of the same thing I just saw I got so exited after finding that and I'll post the link to his pictures he got a few different picture of it too. And read his description of it, it is exactly the same as mine!!

                    Heres the Link http://www.hbccufo.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=1539

                    Thank you to the witness for their excellent report.

                    Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Smoke Ring And Grey Dot

                    Date: July 30, 2004
                    Time: 12:30 CST

                    Earlier today, I decided to take advantage of sunny conditions to go work outside, so I took my notebook computer out to the back patio and set it up. Although the day had started clear, thunder clouds started building up before noon. Much of the sky to the north was cloudy, but the sky to the south was clear. The storm clouds were well defined. There wasn't much overcast or haze, just storm cloud or clear blue sky. I need to take frequent breaks when working on the computer outside, because of glare reflected from the display. So, at one point (about 12:30), I leaned back and looked straight up into the sky. I noticed that there was a very well defined thundercloud to the north, scattered cloud overhead and blue sky west and east. Directly overhead, there was what looked like a smoke ring, about the size of my thumbnail held at arm's length. It was perfectly circular and appeared to be swirling inward on itself. In the center of the smoke ring was a grey dot or small circle. At first, the dot was almost as large as the area inside the smoke ring, about the size of a fingernail at arm's length. Over the next several seconds, the grey dot appeared to get smaller, then disappeared. The smoke ring remained, but gradually (over about a minute or so) dissipated.

                    Additional Information:

                    Q. - Did the dot to the best of your knowledge appear to have any structure to it ? Maybe a solid object ? I know this may

                    A. - Be a tough one to answer if you didn't get a great look at it. It was just a grey dot, actually a somewhat blue-grey, not contrasting very highly against the sky and without sharply defined edges or features. It had the appearance of being very high, with the atmosphere obscuring details and definition.

                    Q. - Also did the grey dot appear to move around at anytime within the circle ?

                    A. - It just seemed to get smaller. Bear in mind that the smoke ring appeared cloud-like, same white color as surrounding cloud, in blue sky (there were clouds near it and a "perfect" thunder cloud off to the north very highly contrasted against a clear sky). Inside the smoke ring, the sky seemed grey, but then it seemed that the grey was getting smaller and the color of the sky outside the ring became more apparent inside the ring. The grey area, or dot, continued getting smaller and the area between it and the edge of the ring took on more of the color of the surrounding sky. Whether perhaps the dot wavered around inside the ring wasn't apparent. It was a bit like watching someone's pupil constrict.

                    Q. - Were you able to hear any sound at all ?

                    A. - There was no sound.

                    Q. - Did you happen to observe any aircraft in the area while this event took place ?

                    A. - Actually, during the entire time I worked outside, there weren't any aircraft. Not a very busy time at the airport, I guess.

                    Q. - Did the dot happen to reflect any light back towards your direction as if the sun had hit it ?

                    A. - I didn't see any reflection, no detail, no definition. Just a grey dot. I wouldn't describe it as fuzzy, but the edges weren't well defined, perhaps because of lack of contrast.

                    Q. - Was there any thing that looked like wings, or something to this effect on the dot ?

                    A. - No other shape at all. For all I know, it could have been a solid object or it could have been a column of smoke or cloud.

                    Thank you to the witness for the report.

                    Mesa, Arizona White Orb And Another Strange Object

                    Date: July 30, 2004
                    Time: 3:35 a.m.

                    Number of witnesses: 2
                    Number of objects: 2
                    Shape of objects: One round (orb), and the other was shaped like an infinity symbol.

                    Full Description of event/sighting: I arrived home from work at approx 0335 and upon getting out of my car, was stunned by a luminous white orb approx 1.5 miles and hovering still at I would say about 2000-3000 feet in the air. Naturally I questioned my senses and thought this must be a star, but, when compared to every other star in the sky, I would estimate that this object was at least 15X brighter and 10X the size of anything else visible. Continuing to question my observation, I went into my house and insisted my roommate take a look at it. We went back out and while wondering what this was, my roommate exclaimed, "FORGET THIS THING, WHAT THE HECK IS THAT THING TO THE LEFT?"

                    To our shock, we saw to the east of the white orb (directly NE from my position) and much lower altitude (500-1000 ft?) what appeared to be a much brighter (10X the white orb, lighting up the sky) white object shaped somewhat like an infinity symbol with a pulsing yellow light spinning rapidly around what would be the equator of the object. We were now questioning our sanity. We watched this spinning object for about a minute then suddenly, all at once the object dimmed down to a single white point of light with a red hue and began moving to the NW of it's original position. We then lost sight of it over houses. The white orb remained in it's original position. I looked at this through binoculars and could determine that it was round in shape and definitely not a star. The light it was emitting was quite bright, but not like a spotlight. The quality of light was very much like a bright white LED. Imagine a white LED as big around as a hot air balloon hovering in the night sky. I'm glad to know that I have not gone mad, and that this was seen by others in the area. Something strange is going on over the Valley of the Sun. Something very strange, indeed.

                    Thank you to the witness for the report.

                      HBCC UFO Research Recently Reported Sightings


                      Rabun, South Alabama,USA Colored Lights

                      The next set is from a video I shot in the spring of this year.I would have to check the time/date stamp on the tape to get an exact date. It was a clear night and I was headed home down one of the local county roads, about 3 miles from the house . A small plane was out in front of me several thousand feet high when I noticed a red light approaching it. At a distance it appeared as just a single red light. The red light crossed just over the top of the small plane and on its present course would come right over the road ahead. I nailed the gas and managed to get under it as it crossed the road. Hanging out the driver window I shot the video which the following frames come from.

                      HBCC UFO Research Note: The witness is referring to the while lights which appear in the last few stills on the page.

                      Below is another set of frames from a video I shot in the front yard this year. I was standing in the yard when the movement of light caught my eye, a ball of light coming across the sky right at my me. I grabbed the camcorder out of the car and started shooting . At one point it passes by a bright star above.

                      Thank you to the witness for the report and interesting pictures.

                      Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Possible Scoop Marks ?

                      Here is the picture. The mark is on the front of my right shin. It is quite a chunk of flesh removed.

                      The story about this is a non-story. I didn't feel or see a thing.... no redness, no lost time experience, no weird dreams.

                      But I can tell you this, I periodically read about scoop marks and check for them, usually with no result. I last checked carefully about 1-2 months ago, when reading an article on them. Then a few days ago, I happened to notice this mark on my shin. An injury with that amount of skin tissue loss would be at least noticeable, if not glaringly apparent for 2 - 4 weeks.
                      I have an old injury on my left knee that isn't 1/2 as deep. It was the result of a nasty run in with the sharp side of a dog cage. It bled for an hour, and was painful and noticeable for over a month. The shin scoop?

                      It just appeared.

                      In fact, I just went on a cruise in June and was well aware of any marks that would be noticeable when wearing a swim suit for a solid week. I knew of only my knee injury.

                      So where this scoop came from, I have no idea.

                      I live in Pittsburgh, PA.

                      Thank you to the person for the sending in the photos of this mysterious mark, where did it come from and when. Something of this size would surely have been noted by the person, but there was no sign of an injury, it just showed up !.

                      Sainte Maxime, South Of St. Tropez Enormous Black Ellipsoid Shaped Craft

                      Date: May - Either 1983 or 1984
                      Time: 9:00 p.m.- 10 p.m.

                      Strange how some things can haunt you. I was browsing the Internet the other day with a search for 'UFO St Tropez' because I had a strange experience in that area about twenty years ago.


                      I was camping in the Ste Maxime area with family and we were walking back to our pitch one splendid May evening having bought some ice-cream at Port Grimaud. I turned to speak when my attention was drawn up to the sky.

                      It was between 9:00 p.m.- 10 p.m. and the sky was a velvety black, filled with a myriad of twinkling stars. The air was very clear and it was a cloudless evening. I suddenly became aware of something traveling across the sky at an incredibly high speed. What was so strange was the fact that there was nothing to see. Rather, a large proportion of the sky was filled by something that itself was blacker than the sky, and where it was moving, the stars were no longer visible. I called to everyone to look up at the sky to see what I was seeing, and a few of the party had the merest glimpse of what was moving there. My sighting lasted only a few seconds until the shape disappeared over the horizon.


                      That black shape moving across the sky had been huge, filling about a quarter of my vision of the sky. It formed a perfect ellipsoid. It was silent. You would not have known anything was there had it not been that the stars behind it were hidden from view as it passed and that it was blacker in outline than the blackness of the sky.

                      I have never been able to explain this experience and there are no records on the internet that I have come across of similar sightings from twenty years ago. I sometimes wonder if I really did see something - but I know I did, and the experience still haunts today because I expect to go to my grave never really knowing what I saw that night.

                      It was certainly more spectacular than the 'black dot' in the photograph of the boat at the harbour in St Tropez taken on 05/08/2003!

                      Additional Information:

                      Dear Brian

                      I am amazed that you replied so quickly to my email of this morning! I just though it would be filed away and forgotten about . . .

                      My memory of the sighting is in so many ways vivid, though the day and year are not clearly remembered! It was either 1983 or 1984 and the month was definitely May. I was on holiday with my Mother and Father, and we were having an evening stroll with some friends we had made at the camp site. There were about six or seven of us in total returning from purchasing ice-creams! To answer your questions:

                      Q. - (Name removed) did the object travel in a straight line, or did it make any unusual movements as it traveled over head ?" and "Can you remember from which direction it came from and heading to ?"

                      A. - It moved in a straight line, and checking a map, from west to east. There was no erratic movement.

                      Q. - "At the time of the sighting, did you or anyone else in your party observe any aircraft, ? Or were aircraft seen following the event ?"

                      A. - There were no aircraft that I can remember. The only light came from the stars.

                      Q. - "I understand it was a dark night, but I was wondering were you able at anytime to observe any other detail on the object ? Any light coming from it, even if just dim."

                      A. - This is the detail that interests me the most. If it was not for the fact that it was blacker than the dark of the sky, and blocked the view of the stars filling the heavens, you would never have known anything was flying by! No lights. Totally silent. No air displacement. From west to east across the horizon in about three seconds.

                      Q. - "Do you believe the object was high up in altitude ? If so, or not, would you be able to make a wild guess as to the height it was from you ?"

                      A. - Difficult to say. But it was certainly huge and I guess between 10,000 feet - 20,000 feet in altitude. However, I often wonder if it was in orbit . . . and so really huge. The angle it traveled across the horizon makes me think it was not so high in the sky.

                      Q. - "Is there anyway you might be able to make a rough drawing of what things looked like that evening and of course the craft itself and email it to me ?"

                      A. - Other than saying there was an enormous black ellipsoid shape that a quarter filled the sky and moved from west to east at high speed, I could not add to anything with a drawing. My IT skills are not up to it!

                      I'm afraid that I cannot ask anyone else to add to this account. Those with me on that evening are now either dead, or did not see as clearly as I did because by the time their attention was drawn to it, the shape was gone. However, they all registered that they had been aware of something, but they were so busy talking at the time that it was not memorable enough for them. Only I, by turning to speak as I was walking ahead, saw the shape come from the distant horizon and disappear within a few seconds. They just caught a glimpse of something. If I had not turned round at the time, I would not have seen anything at all. Maybe that is the whole point . . . no-one was expected to see anything at all.

                      With best wishes.

                      Thank you very much to the witness for the interesting report.

                      North East Minneapolis, USA Another Unusual Morphing Object Filmed

                      Date: February of 2003
                      Time: 2:00 p.m.

                      REGARDING:
                      http://www.hbccufo.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=1640
                      HBCC UFO Research Note: I have the video clip here and it shows a very interesting object which moves slowly through the sky. From what I observe from the clip is that the object appear to be morphing, certainly changing shape as it moves along. Also something else which is extremely interesting is that at one end of the object, there is what appears to be a reflection off of the object caused by the sun, or the object has it's own light source which it is creating. You will see this also in the center part of the object from time to time as well. This is really an interesting bit of footage.

                      Also the clip is 4.91mbs in size and I will post it for a "short time only" due to bandwidth concerns. Then I will take it down. All of the 18 photos will remain, these still shots were taken from the clip in order. But there would have been hundreds that I could have grabbed but this will give everyone an idea of what and how the object acted.

                      Hello,


                      I shot a very similar object on video in North East Minneapolis. back on a cold day in February of 2003... Before I saw the Dallas UFO, I couldn't rule out the possibility that it was some black balloons, but what are the odds of two videos looking so much alike? It gives off irregular brilliant flashes that are too bright to be reflections of a balloon, and balloons would have a constant reflection.

                      What could this morphing object be?

                      Additional Information below:

                      Q. - First of all, can you remember the time when this took place ?

                      A: just after 2:00 p.m.

                      Q. - In what part of the sky was the UFO located? North, South, East, West? On the horizon or straight overhead or somewhere in between?

                      A: it was SE from my location moving North

                      Q. - When the UFO moved? How far and how fast? Describe its movements in detail please.

                      A: It wasn't moving very fast I'd guess between 20-30 Mph., constant altitude about 40 Deg. from Horizon, I filmed it for about 2 minutes, until it was too far to see.

                      Q. - Can you please describe the appearance of the UFO: shape, size, distance, color, texture, sound.

                      A: It seemed to be matte black with 3 round sections that appeared to move yet stay attached to each other. It emitted a bright flash from each section (1 section at a time) It's hard to judge size and distance, but I got the impression it was only '5 to '7 in length. it made no sound that I could hear. If I hadn't been scanning the skies, I'd never have noticed it.

                      Q. - Can you describe the area in which you made the sighting. Is it near an airport? An Air Force Base? A military or research installation of any kind?

                      A: It's about 3 miles NE of downtown Minneapolis in over Hwy 36, in the 'Home Depot' parking lot. It is a high air-traffic sky (In fact I was filming chemtrails) I was using a Canon Elura MiniDV w40x digital zoom.

                      Q. - Also I noticed a contrail high above in some of the frames. Did the Jet happen to make any changes in direction that is if you noticed ?

                      A: No, they are much too high and the object is much too small for them to see. I lost sight of it a few times until it flashed.

                      Phoenix, Arizona Red Object In Sky Over Chandler

                      Date: July 27, 2004
                      Time: Approx: 8:05 p.m.

                      Brian, I have been trying to see if anyone has reported what my husband and I saw in the sky over the east phoenix area on the evening of July 27th 2004. My husband and I were sitting out on our back patio in Chandler that faces north, we estimate it was about 8:05pm. We were talking and I saw this bright red light coming south from the north. I asked my husband, "what do you think that is?" and we went back and forth for probably a couple of minutes and couldn't decide what it was.

                      All of a sudden it stopped. We stood and watched it until about 8:25. We got the binoculars out and were looking at it and it was just a red dot. It was the most bizarre thing we have ever seen. It would move a little then stop then move real quick then stop.. all of a sudden no more red light but we could still barely see the object. It didn't really flicker, but the red light would go away and then it would come back a few seconds later. It did the quick movements straight south and then started going east when the light started going on and off. I went and got my camera and my husband was watching with the binoculars. At one point we thought it was gone then it reappeared probably close to a minute later. All of a sudden it took off east faster than anything either of us have ever seen and boom it was gone.

                      We have been watching pretty much nightly to see if it's gonna be back. It was definately not an airplane because and airplane flew in between us and the object. And it was definately not a flare (usually what they say here) because flares don't move that way and they don't disappear and then come back. I took a couple of pictures but unfortunately all I had available was my little freeby digital camera (Vivicam 10). I have attached them but I was hoping that someone else saw this and has better pictures. Can you please let me know if anyone else saw this, I would've thought I was crazy if my husband and daughter weren't right there with me in amazement.

                      Thanks!

                      Thank you to the witness for the excellent report and the photos. Pictures are ©2004LBCSJ

                      Glossop Valley, The Pennines United Kingdom

                      Date: July 30 2004
                      Time: 5:29 p.m.

                      Number of witnesses: 2
                      Number of objects: 1
                      Shape of objects: Pipe-shaped

                      Full Description of event/sighting: I was walking down towards my house behind which is the view of the Glossop valley. Right in the middle of the valley, very high up, I noticed a black object seemingly floating along. Immediately I thought that it was something out of the ordinary as I had never seen anything like it before. It was shaped like a black pipe or rod and it was stood vertically though at a slight angle. I watched it for a few seconds before I called my sister on her mobile to come out and have a look, I didn't want to go and get her in case it disappeared. She came out and saw it and although I was adamant it was a UFO she was more skeptical, although she couldn't tell what it was either. The object was moving from right to left in our line of vision and as it seemed to be getting further away I went into the house and get my Dad's binoculars out. By this time it had moved much further into the distance, though through the binoculars I could see that it was slowly rotating, in the way that it was black but every so often it would show a silver metallic side opposed to black. The whole sighting lasted about 15 minutes before the object was out of sight. Although I believed I had seen a UFO, I was even more convinced when I looked on the website UFOINFO and found that someone had posted a sighting, one that had happened exactly a year before at almost the same time and which had happened in the same place. The sight report could not have given a better description of what my sister and I saw, and when my sister read it even she agreed that it was a strange coincidence.

                      Thank you to the witness for this report.

                      Both John Hayes at UFOINFO and myself received this report.

                      Kingsland, Texas Craft, But What Is It ?

                      Date: July 30, 2004
                      Time: Daytime sighting

                      The sighting took place on July 30, 2004 in Kingsland, Texas after lunch. I am not sure what time it was exactly. I have several other pictures I took just before or just after. I did not see anything in the picture when I took it. This was made with a HP.315 photo smart digital camera. It doesn't really look like a bird when it's enlarged, maybe it could be a plane, but I didn't hear anything that sounded like a plane in the area at that time. I have seen unidentified objects before and I reported them to Mr. Davenport. I also was coming from a small town (Burnet, Texas) back to my home about a month ago. It was about 9:30 p.m. when I saw a big light, like a star shining (silver) just over to the right of my car. It was so close it felt like I could touch it. I am not good with distances or heights. Anyway I watched it until I couldn't see it any more. I started to stop and look at it, but this is a deserted road, no traffic. Anyway when I went back on Tuesday night I looked for it but it was gone. I couldn't tell the shape of it, just light. It was really bright. I travel this road two times a week and that's the first time I ever saw anything like it on that road.

                      Thanks and I hope this helps you.

                      Thank you to the witness for being kind enough to send the report and photo along to me.

                      Phoenix, Arizona - Incredible New Footage (Three Video Clips)

                      Date: July 31, 2004
                      Time: Between 12:30 to 2:30

                      On July 31, 2004 I went to my office parking garage and did a stakeout there between 12:30 to 2:30. Between these times I can almost guarantee a sighting in the same general area around these times. A hot spot as we say. I noticed chemtrails being formed in this general area and when these are formed I can usually find a UFO at or around that vicinity. I was there for about an hour and decided to do a walk around because I didn't see anything yet and as luck would have it I noticed a strange formation of lights or orbs to the North.

                      They were moving West which was against the wind that day so I knew this was something worth taping. The objects never got any higher from the beginning of the sighting to the end but the sighting was only about 2 minutes long. I started to video tape them after a few seconds of looking through the binoculars just to make sure it was worth taping. It was. I was in a parking garage with my camera on the tripod but the objects started to go out of view and I had to go on the roof to see them. By the time I ran up 2 stories it was impossible to find where they went and that was the last I saw of those objects. A few minutes go by and I saw something coming in from the West where the string of lights were heading towards and this object was a silvery-black metallic and moving very fast towards the Southeast. I started to tape it and I noticed that it was turning over and spinning and reflecting the sunlight so you can tell it was metallic. The object was picking up speed and heading in the direction of the chemtrails (Southwest).

                      It kept a straight line, it never bobbed up or down, slowed down or did anything erratic. I did notice a red distortion around the object when I played back the video though. After a minute of taping this I lost it somehow when I was trying to get a better view. It was going pretty fast.

                      I have to say that I was very excited and decided to hang around a little longer just to see if it came back. About 10 minutes later I noticed a white orb by the chemtrail that was formed when I got to the office about an hour ago. I taped the orb until it went over my head and out of sight. It could have been 10,000 ft or higher. I could have went on the roof again but it was hot and I decided to stay in the shade. It didn't matter because as soon as the orb went over my head I noticed a second orb getting ready to drift into the chemtrail. I taped it and it went through the trail from the left and came out the right side. It's so obvious that these are not planes, helicopters or balloons. You can see this for yourself on the video and the events that led up to the orbs in the trails. I lost that orb trying to get a better view, probably went into the trail and I couldn't see it anymore.

                      The orbs are white and difficult to see which is still amazing to me that I can see them at all. This area that I go to is a hot hot spot. I sent you many video clips from this location. It's right by Sky Harbor International Airport! Why would we be flying experimental aircraft over a heavy populated area and by the airport? Or are we? I have no explanation as to what these are but it's all over the area. I am sending you some clips through several emails in the order this happened. That was on Saturday...wait till you see what I taped on Sunday...more to come. Thank you.

                      Thank you to the gentleman for the excellent footage, still and the report.

                      Thunder Bay, Ontario Orange Copper Colored Object Makes "S' Turn

                      Date: August 1, 2004
                      Time: 12:20 a.m.

                      Location of Sighting: Above our house, over the city.
                      Number of witnesses: 2
                      Number of objects: 1
                      Shape of objects: Round.

                      Full Description of event/sighting: Looked like a satellite that moves across the sky and twice as big. It was orange copper in the light coming from it....like a street light but brighter. It moved in a staright line like a satellite but much faster, then it did a "S" shape, but not a perfect "S" it was a tilted S so that it was going right and up, left and down then up again. During the S shape it picked up great speed and as it accelerated upward it disappeared into darkness. There was no streak or tail, no sound, and it looked high up like a satellite, but you could tell it was lower, as it maneuvered you could see that there was like a metal texture....that it wasn't pure light. My wife saw it first and pointed up and said "look", I saw it right away as it was the biggest and brightest object in the sky. First sighting ever for both of us. It lasted about 8 seconds or more.

                      We are both university educated people, I am a teacher myself.

                      Thank you to the witness for their report.

                      Gooderham, Ontario Two Circular Objects

                      Date: August 1, 2004
                      Time: 3:48 p.m.

                      Number of witnesses: 1
                      Number of objects: 2
                      Shape of objects: Circular

                      Full Description of event/sighting: I was up at the cottage with some family and friends and decided to sit over by the small water falls which run beside our cottage and empty into the lake. The weather was mostly clear except for the occasional cloud drifting by. I was just admiring the view and watching my relatives splash around in the lake and I glanced up to the sky as a cloud obscured the sunshine we were all enjoying, when to my surprise I seen two circular objects with a very slight vapor or contrails behind them (one object flying directly behind the others slight contrail). I lifted my hand to further obscure the sun and watched the objects fly behind the cloud. I kept watching as I excepted them to re-appear on the other side of the cloud. However they did not. Where did they go? We can only speculate. I estimate their height to be at least 25 to 35 thousand feet. With my arm outstretched and holding a thumb out they would have both fit inside my thumbnail. Duration of sighting was about 5 seconds. They were heading SW from the NW at a incredible speed. Faster than any aircraft I have ever seen.

                      They seemed metallic in colour as it appeared the sunlight reflected off their circular shapes. I would have yelled to everyone that was swimming to look up but I was waiting to see the objects come out the other side of the cloud, however to my disappointment they did not. I did mention it to my family and they also expressed some disappointment that they didn't get to see these objects as I described. We debated on what they might have been and decided the sighting worthy of report.

                      Thank You Brian for having this site for people like me to make these sightings known to all.

                      Thank you to the witness for the excellent report.

                      Sydney, Australia Sighting Of Similar Orange/Reddish Ball Of Fire

                      Date: August 1, 2004
                      Time: Approx: 1:00 a.m.

                      Gday

                      I have read with interest your report (Attached). I enclose for you a copy of a report of an incident that happened to me last Sunday Morning ie 1st August 2004. (HBCC UFO Research Note: The gentleman is referring to a sighting in which I received and can be found on my site at: <a href="http://www.hbccufo.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=1142">http://www.hbccufo.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=1142</a><p>

                      The similarity is outstanding !

                      Report

                      The time is now 1.37 am Sydney Australian time. This incident happened approximately 45- 50 min ago. I am a 60 year old professional male I had been out to dinner with some friends and was driving home ( therefore sober) As I was driving home from Sydney to Camden (about 30 mile away) at about 1:00 a.m. this morning.

                      The night was clear except for a small amount of cloud but was dry and crisp.

                      I noticed a orange/reddish ball of fire at about 15 degrees above the horizon and about 2000 feet away from me, on my left coming towards my direction , but at a parallel line it was then joined by a second ball of similar size and shape. At first I thought it was the afterburners of a low flying military aircraft, but there were no other lights of any description. I stopped my
                      car and got out to obtain an uninterrupted look.

                      The lights moved from right, to left and in a northerly direction, they were both clearly controlled by some sort of intelligence. They stopped and hung in the sky for about 2 minutes and then moved upwards and to the left or right.

                      The one on the left then moved to a higher altitude approximately 1-2 mile high and then moved away at such a great speed that it was clear that nothing we ( ordinary mortals ) know of as being made by us.

                      I immediately made a call to the Sunday Telegraph Newspaper and reported the incident and also tried to ring the Kingsford Smith Airport but was unable to get the number.

                      I have absolutely no doubt that these objects were controlled by a some sort of intelligence, They were defiantly not fire balls or swamp gas , they were objects being controlled by some sort of intelligence.

                      Thank you to the witness for the interesting report.

                        HBCC UFO Research Recently Reported Sightings




                        Vancouver, British Columbia Abduction

                        I mentioned to you a while back re. my nieces new husband telling us about his mother seeing those black rectangles hanging in the sky over UBC. Well a few weeks back he was telling us that when he was about 19, he was out in his backyard with a large telescope he had at the time. He was intending to look at the moons around Jupiter. He'd just gotten the scope set up when he heard what sounded like bees flying around him. He said, he looked around but didn't see anything. He then looked straight up and there was an enormous black triangle shaped object hanging in the sky right over him. Moments later it just took off and disappeared. He ran in to tell his girlfriend what he had seen. His girlfriend at the time was just inside watching TV. The show she was watching was just coming to and end and he knew that when he went outside it had just been starting. He had thought he was only outside about 5 minutes but it had been closer to an hour. Had he been abducted, he didn't know.

                        He then told us that about five years? later he was living in an apt. in south Vancouver on the 14th. fl. It was night time and quite dark. He was working on his computer next to the window and started getting the feeling someone was watching him. He said he looked out the window several times but could see nothing. Then all of a sudden he got a sudden sharp pain in the area of his diaphragm which practically doubled him right over. He remembered grasping the area and thinking to himself what the hell was that. Then he realized that his chair was no longer in front of the computer but over about four feet. While wondering what the heck had just happened he noticed he had a perfect triangular scoop mark taken out of his forearm, it was quite deep but no pain and it was not bleeding. Also he soon discovered that somehow he had lost half and hour of time. A short time later he had to see his Dentist and while checking his teeth the Dentist asked him how he had gotten the triangular hole in the roof of his mouth. All he could say was he didn't know, as he didn't want to say, he thought he'd been abducted. He told us a few other experiences he's had but I don't recall now, what he said. He is rather reticent to talk about things but he knows I am interested so occasionally things come out.

                        Thank you to the person for relating the story to me

                        Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Object ?

                        Date: July 19, 2004
                        Time: 11:00 p.m.

                        I have seen UFOs in all parts of the sky since July 19/04. I have 7 other witnesses who have seen the same.

                        On July 19, at 11:55 pm, I saw a craft flying NE to NW - 10 sec. to cross the horizon, larger and lower in altitude than a jet aircraft, w/large red & white lights. No sound. I then noticed a small star-like object, much higher in altitude, flying slowly in one direction, in the NE sky (in Cassiopeia) I thought it was a satellite, till it moved in the opposite direction, slowly, then in small circular motions, in a slow, "bug like" pattern. It disappeared after 6 min. of viewing. The next night, at 10:55 p.m., I viewed the exact same thing with a witness, a flight attendant. She confirmed the 1st craft was not a plane.

                        The star like objects appeared again, this time we saw 2. I stayed up till 2:45 a.m. viewing the same object.

                        Three nights, 1 week apart, have been spent viewing them from a field, where we discovered these flying star like craft were flying all over the sky.

                        There are now 2 relatively stationary bright star-like objects in the , that appear only to hover, moving only slightly, always maintaining their positions fairly relative to the stars. They flash a distinctive red, green, and gold. (NW & NE sky). They too look like stars or planets until you view them very closely, or video tape them using a tripod (which I did - I haven't looked at all the footage yet, you can see their (360 degree) movement in bug like patterns. This is all clearly visible to the naked eye.

                        There are 2 bright stars that have a very definite condensed, white, fluorescent/halogen type light. One is positioned directly overhead (impossible to video from my tripod). The other is at about a 90 degree angle. Movement can be difficult to detect because they hover slightly and move slowly.

                        The smaller star like objects that are flying all over the sky seem to be (through binoculars) cylindrical, or cigar shaped, and have a fainter version of the white condensed. Some also flash the green/red/gold color.

                        They flicker in and out of sight, sometimes they grow dim before they accelerate, they appear at times
                        to be floating in wind (same movements).

                        Please let me know what I can do to find out what these are. Because of their length and duration, I am more curious than ever.

                        Thanks.

                        HBCC UFO Research Note: I called the lady up and had a wonderful talk with her. She explained in detail as to what she was witnessing along with a number of other who are puzzeled over these events.

                        Thank you very much to the witness for her report.

                        North Surrey, British Columbia Blue Object

                        Date: July 22 or 23, 2004
                        Time: 3:21 a.m.

                        I live in North Surrey, The centre piece of the Mall is the Green Tower built by ICBC and is located on the north side of Old Yale Rd. between King George Hyw. and 134th. St. I have photos of the tower but they are buried at the moment. The blue object I saw at approx. 3:21 am. flashed into sight at about the east edge of the tower and vanished by the time it reached the western edge. It must have been a very shallow entry. The blue colour was about the same shade as the blue on my TV screen, produced by my VCR and like I told you it was also weird because of the sort of rectangular shape. I was checking my calendar and I believe it occurred either on the 22 or 23 of July, 2004.

                        Thank you to the witness for this report.

                        Edmonton, Alberta Cigar Shaped Craft

                        Date: July 25 or 26, 2004
                        Time: 2:00 p.m.

                        Number of witnesses: 1
                        Number of objects: 1
                        Shape of objects: Cigar

                        Full Description of event/sighting: I felt an urge to look out of my window and I saw a very large (bigger than any commercial jet) silver cigar shaped object moving SW at an altitude (best guess)of about 6000 feet. the object was highly reflective and silent. it was flying at a high rate of speed without leaving a contrail. I was amazed at this sight in the middle of the day so much so that I had to rub my eye's. unfortunately when I tried to re-focus on the Cigar it had simply vanished. Weather at the time was sunny and bright with high cloud.

                        Additional Information:

                        Hi Brian

                        Thank you for contacting me so quickly. The entire sighting lasted for no more than 1-2 minutes. It had no visible lights and it flew in a fairly straight line. I am absolutely positive the object had no wings/fins-no protrusions at all (which is why I noticed it in the first place) and yes I did see 2 passenger jets in the vicinity but they were flying at a much higher altitude.
                        I would also like to mention that this is not my first sighting of these strange aircraft.

                        Thank you to the witness for this report.

                        Phoenix, Arizona Red-Orange Round Light

                        Date: July 28, 2004
                        Time: 3:00 a.m.

                        Number of witnesses: 1
                        Number of objects: 1
                        Shape of objects: Round.

                        Full Description of event/sighting: I was writing regarding the reported lights/object in the phoenix sky on July 27th.
                        I just read the recent reports now a few weeks later and wanted to add to what happened.

                        The next morning from that night, my neighbor rang my doorbell (which is unusual because he never comes over, but he knows I'm a space buff) and was all excited and told me all about this red-orange round light he saw in the sky about 3:00 a.m. in the morning. He said he was out back just watching stars because he couldn't sleep, and he watched this big orange red glowing object - not a plane - they fly by Phoenix - a major corridor, not the moon - but a strange glowing bulb moving a little and then alot, going off and on for a half an hour or so - and then it disappeared and that was it.

                        I asked him about it yesterday again and he swore again it was the weirdest and coolest thing he ever saw.

                        Anyways, that was the report, just thought people should know.

                        Thank you to the fellow for the report.

                        Luxemburg, Belgium Orange Sphere

                        Date: August 1, 2004
                        Time: 3:00 p.m.

                        Number of witness: 2
                        Number of objects: 1
                        Shape of object: Orange sphere.

                        Complete description of event: I was having lunch at my parent's on Sunday August 1st 2004. We had just finished our meal and it was around 3 pm. It was a really nice day. The sky was clear, without any clouds. Our village is located at a crosspoint for several very busy airplane corridors so I often see planes fly by. I was watching an aircraft as it was flying very high when I noticed an orange sphere. It was stationary in the sky and it was changing colours, from orange to red, sometimes to white. It looked like it was blinking. I went inside to fetch my binoculars and I observed it for a good minute.

                        The sphere then moved slowly towards the south-east. Sometimes it disappeared then reappeared. Then it moved slightly upward towards the north-west, always changing colours, from orange to red. Then the sphere disappeared. I don't know if it went away at great speed like it's often mentioned in UFO reports or if it just became invisible. My father observed it too. I don't know yet if the SOBEPS heard of this event or if this thing was detected by some radars. Since Sunday I've been
                        watching the sky in case I can see it again.

                        Personally I think we're not alone in the Universe. Our development as humans is still in the early stages and there is a lot of concepts we can't grasp. I am of an inquisitive nature and I would really like to know if beings from other planets are visiting us or know about us. I have read quite a bit on the subject although I'm not an expert.

                        Thank you and have a good day.

                        Thank you to the witness for the report.

                        HBCC UFO Research Note: This report was sent into me in the French language and a great lady who really lends a hand translated into English for me and us all to read.

                        This little nugget I captured is my second favorite video in my archive. This is the one and only orb out of 50 I have on video that flashes like this. I went out in the backyard like I always do around 7:00 p.m. to look around for UFOs and I saw this orb coming over my house heading Northeast. I was somewhat excited but as you know I see these orbs all the time and I taped it just in case it did something else other than pass by out of sight. It was a clear day, no breeze and around 7:00 p.m.. The altitude of the object was approximately 3000'-5000'. It's always hard to tell how high these are but the size and clarity was better than usual so that's just my guess compared to others I've taped. I had the camera on a tripod but it wasn't working with me and the video is a little jumpy. The actual movement of the object was in a straight line slowing down and speeding back to normal. When the object lit up it was so bright that you can easily see it with your naked eye but when it was not lit up it was difficult to see. As usual I had the camera on it and it shows me moving the camera around on the tripod until it stopped shaking. That's why the object moves so much. You can see how it moves when I stop moving. It was going about 5-10 mph to the N.E. until it vanished out of my sight. Very exciting. Thank you again and I will talk to you soon.

                        Thank you to the witness for the report and photos. Also there is a video clip that shows the orb moving about the sky.

                        Phoenix, Arizona Object - What Is It ?

                        Date: August, 4th 2004
                        Time: Between 7:40 a.m. to 8:25 a.m.

                        Brian.

                        I went outside this morning to kiss the wife off to work and I noticed a few chemtrails to the South. I went in the backyard to get a better view and didn't see any objects. I just happened to be staring at a chemtrail that was hidden inside a cloud and a black dot popped right out of it. I grabbed the video camera before grabbing the binoculars knowing that this was something special because it looked bigger than usual. The object hovered for a few minutes while I put the camera on the tripod. I kept looking up to make sure it was still there and it looked like it moved closer and looked bigger. I can see it rotating and it looked like a Chinese lantern. I know this sounds corny but the feelings that were going through my body made my eyes tear up, I was emotional to say the least. I was videotaping this object no more that 3000' up and it was clear and detailed.

                        After a few minutes the object moved around in circles then started to head North extremely slow. There was no wind on the ground but I can't tell you if there was a breeze by this object because it was drifting slowly. The object made no sound and it did its own thing, you can tell by the way it moved. It pauses for a second then moves again and the video I have of this object is almost 40 minutes long. It started to move West and I lost it behind the house next door. I tried to find it but it was a dot and very hard to see anyway. I will send you the video clip and you can let me know what you think this may be or if you have something like this in your archives. Thank you again your friend in Az.

                        Thank you to the witness for the report, stills and footage. On a personal note, I really would like to thank this man for everything he is sending into me, as it has been extremely interesting.

                        Oregon, Illinois Another Bright Red Ball Of Light

                        Date: August 5, 2004
                        Time: 12:00 a.m.

                        Number of witnesses: 1
                        Number of objects: 1
                        Shape of objects: Unknown just a light.

                        Full Description of event/sighting: I saw the same red object that was reported as being seen in AZ. I went outside to have a cigarette and watch for meteors like I do quite frequently. The thing that stuck me after catching some movement was the color. The object was bright red just like the photos from AZ. I was looking approx. south and the object was traveling approx west to east. The object moved a lot faster than any of the satellites that I normally see. I watched it cover a large portion of the sky until I lost it behind a cloud. The object appeared to be very high and quite a ways off. It was approx. 45 degrees above the horizon and traveled in a straight line the whole time that I watched it.

                        Q. - How long were you able to see the object, from start until it disappeared ?

                        A. - I watched the object for probably no more than 30 sec. in that time it transversed a large amount of the visible sky.

                        Q. - Did it have any blinking or flashing lights on it ?

                        A. - The object did not blink, flash, or change color. It stayed a constant intensity the whole time.

                        Q. - Did it make any erratic moments that you are aware of ?

                        A. - The object moved in a straight line the whole time I observed it.

                        Q. - Were there any aircraft in the area at the time of the sighting, or just following the event ?

                        A. - I did not see any aircraft right before or right after the event.

                        Q. - Could you please describe the area in which you made the sighting. Is it near an airport? An Air Force Base? A military or research installation of any kind?

                        A. - I live approx. 90 miles west of Chicago IL. and 20 miles south of Rockford IL. There is a airport in Rockford but no military bases close. I live in a small group of houses a few miles from the nearest town. There is a lot of space between my house and the next closest ones.

                        Q. - In what part of the sky was the UFO located? North, South, East, West? On the horizon or straight overhead or somewhere in between?

                        A. - I was looking approx. south and about 45 degrees above the horizon. The object traveled approx west to east.

                        Q. - Can you please describe the weather. Was it Overcast? Raining? A clear night? Full moon? ( I did noticed you mention cloud, but wanted to make sure of the conditions.

                        A. - The weather was mostly clear with some light clouds. The moon was not up very high yet at the time of the sighting.

                        Q. - If there is anything else you can add this would be great.

                        A. - I have seen many planes and satellites when I have been looking at the sky and this was not like anything that I had seen before. I wrote because I saw pictures of the one seen in AZ. on the Jeff Rense website and they looked just like what I saw including the color.

                        Thank you to the witness for this report.

                        St.Thomas, Ontario Light

                        Date: August 6, 2004
                        Time: Between 12:00 and 2:00 a.m.

                        Number of witnesses: 4
                        Number of objects: 1
                        Shape of objects: Bright twinkling/flashing lights.

                        Full Description of event/sighting: Starting approx. a week ago my sister and I were lying on a hammock in the backyard at around 12:30 a.m. watching for shooting stars when we noticed a twinkling light in the sky, at first glance it looked like an airplane but it just hovered in one spot for about 3 minutes and then it slowly started to move from side to side and then up and down, but very very slowly. We then noticed it started to twinkle and flash white, red and blue. Then it would slowly fade to a small twinkling white light for a few minutes. Then it would start flashing colours rapidly. Sometimes the coloured lights appeared to be in a circle. We watched it for 45 minutes the whole time moving slowly downward in the sky until it was no longer visible. We've now seen this three different nights within the last week. We looked up this sight and saw that someone in London Ontario has seen something very similar. We just wanted to let them know that we can see it from St.Thomas Ontario.

                        Thank you to the witnesses for their report.

                          UFO - Three Stories Of Interest

                          My interest in this subject began at a family gathering in the early 1960s when my brother, who served in a special part of the armed forces, revealed that the military was fully aware of the existence of UFOs. My brother, now deceased, had worked in what he described as "missile guidance and control." At least that is how I remember it. Before joining the military he did not believe in UFOs.

                          He told us that, as part of the schooling, he and 30 others received special training in reading radar and being able to identify UFOs from other aircraft. He said the military did not want an accidental nuclear exchange as a result of confusing UFOs with possible missile strikes from the People's Republic of China or the Soviet Union. The army, he said, not only revealed UFO existence but also trained him and the others of his crew in how recognize their peculiar movements and characteristics on radar. The military, he told us, revealed nothing further other than that they were just here.

                          In 1978 I hired a 70-year-old (approx.) woman named Vivian, as my secretary. I was director of an organization that planned and created activities for older Americans. Vivian told me when she was a young woman in her early 20s (around 1928) and living in the state of Wyoming that she used to get up early in the morning 2 or 3 times a week and play golf. She recounted one very early summer morning just after 4:30 a.m. that she walked about a quarter of a mile to the golf course. When she reached the top of a small hill overlooking the playing area, she said she was stunned to see a greenish glowing sphere-like object hovering (she said "setting") about 10 feet off the ground. She told me she was so shocked that had she could not move. She described it as being approximately 50 feet in diameter with oval shaped windows around the top third area.

                          She said she knew instinctively it was not from our world. After nearly 10 minutes of just staring at this most unusual sight she said the object rose slowly from its position and began making a faint humming noise. Then, quite suddenly, it just streaked away and was gone with in a few seconds. She told no one about this for over 25 years for fear people would think she was crazy. I believed Vivian's story because she always told me the truth. If she did not like how I was running the Agency she would tell me about it and not always pleasantly. She was a no-nonsense person who believed neither in God, nor honest politicians.

                          For a few months in 1980 I worked at a car rental agency. One of my duties was to go to the Seattle International airport and pick up airline flight crew and bring them back for a car rental. Every time I picked up a pilot I would always find some way of asking them if they had ever seen a UFO.

                          Every pilot but two replied no. I felt some were even irritated with the question but most were good sports and gave me their opinion (usually negative) on the subject. A few told me while they did not believe in them, other airline pilot friends did report seeing them on occasion. One evening I picked up an airline pilot captain whose name was Frank. When I asked Frank if he had ever seen anything strange like a UFO, he was very silent for a few minutes. I thought maybe he was insulted by the question. I was worried he would tell my boss.

                          However, to my surprise he opened up and told a very interesting story.

                          "During the Carter administration, I was flying out of Washington DC with not only the regulars (passengers), but the Secretary of Transportation, and his staff as well. We were about 20 miles out when three green globes or spheres appeared in front of my plane." He said they appeared to be about 50 feet or better in diameter and were flying formation. "We not only had visual, but they were being tracked from ground radar. " He told me because these objects were in front of the plane none of the passengers were aware of what was going on. "I called the Secretary of transportation to my cockpit. I wanted a witness and I thought he would want to know. I thought this would be the biggest news story of the century. I asked him if they might have been experimental craft. He replied flatly; "No," he went on to say they were globe shaped and had oval windows or what appeared to be windows around the top third of the structures. "Not one of my flight crew nor did the secretary of transportation think they were other than what they appeared to be?shy; some kind of space craft from another world."

                          I found it remarkable that the type of craft described by both Vivian and the Airline pilot were identical even thought the two events took place more then 50 years apart.

                          Anyway that's my story. I am sorry it is second hand info.

                          Thank you to the person for relating these stories for us all to read. I also asked about the names, if I should remove them, but the person said it was fine to publish as is, mainly due to the first name given only.

                          As for the military story above, if others who were involved in this program, or may know military folks who were. Would you please be kind enough to contact me over this part of the story.

                          Also I would very, very interested in hearing from Airline Pilots, retired or still flying who may know something about the story above, or have witnessed an unusual object while flying the many different routes around the world.

                          I would like to "stress", I will not release anyone's personal information.

                          Fort Bragg, North Carolina Brilliant Oval Shaped Object

                          Hello Brian,

                          After reading some of the former military personnel sightings on rense.com, I'd thought I'd add my two cents. Although I was never in the military, my father was Regular Army and retired in 1985 after around 30 years of service.

                          When I was a child in the late 70's we lived at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Actually, we lived in the small town next to it called Fayetteville in military housing. In the summer of 1976, I saw something strange that I'll never forget. I walked next door to a friend's house and rang the doorbell. He shortly opened the door and said he'd be right out and ran back into the house leaving the door open, but the screen door closed. I then turned around to see an oval shaped object that was an absolutely brilliant pure white. I couldn't see windows or any other features on this UFO because its entire elliptical face was shining brightly. It was like pure light, but the object had a distinct outline.

                          It was a calm sunny day with nothing but blue sky all around. The UFO must have been located in the northwest because the sun was to the right of me and behind a ways, so I was in standing in shadows. I stood there in shock for a few seconds as the thing moved very slowly and very solidly (in other words it didn't bob around in the air) from the left to the right, or north easterly direction. It was probably about 1000 feet or so off the ground and at 40 degrees elevation angle. It made no sound whatsoever.

                          After I gathered my composure I started yelling to my friend to hurry up and come outside. He came back to the front door and I saw him sit on the floor and start to put on his sneakers just inside the screen door. I watched the object for a few more seconds and then it simply blinked out as if someone turned off a light. A second later my friend came outside to join me. I suddenly felt afraid not knowing where the thing had gone and what would happen next, so I entered his house and got him to follow me then told him what I saw. We spent the next several minutes looking out of windows for it and that's all I can remember.

                          I had forgotten all about this sighting until about 5 years later. I was living in Fort Bliss, El Paso, Texas when I read an article that startled me. It was an interview with a man who lived in North Carolina who said that he and an elderly couple had seen the oval UFO's that I had seen. Furthermore, this man stated that he had been told by unnamed government sources that there was a secret or hidden base somewhere in the area which he believed they were coming from. Incidentally, Pope Air Force Base was right next to Fort Bragg.

                          I've lived in Phoenix, Arizona for the past 9 years. I did not see the Phoenix lights that made the national news a few years back, nor have I seen some of the things that people have captured on video, though I'd really like to. However, a few years ago I did see a strange V-shaped craft here at sunset. It was totally black, very big, and had no lighting at all. I was driving directly east straight toward it and estimated it to be around a mile or so up. I also saw a commercial airplane, silver in color, higher, further distant, and to the left or north of this V-shaped craft. The commercial plane, probably a 737 or airbus, had its landing lights on as it approached Sky Harbor airport.

                          At first I thought this big black object heading toward me was just a flying wing or something similar that didn't have its lights on, but as it banked to eventually head directly south, I saw it was a V-shaped craft that was hollow in the middle, but also seemed to have the bottom part, or the tips of its wings connected. In other words, a flying triangle. Really strange.

                          Anyway, I don't know what the truth behind the UFO mystery is, but there can be no doubt that strange things have been seen flying in the skies everywhere in the world by credible witnesses for many years that defy identification, and therefore, explanation.

                          Sincerely,

                          Thank you to the witness for the excellent reports.

                          Denver, Colorado Triangular Object And More

                          Date: Varies
                          Time: Varies

                          Message: All shorts of stuff the last few months. Just before Halloween last fall, was called out to see a triangular object, that was not the same length on all sides. It was longer on two sides, and very long on the bottoms. The angles were all rounded. It flew pretty low, was silent, and when it was in the light clouds above my head, it glowed in bluish while light, short of like the moon does. It was going in a more or less circular path. When I say I got called out, it means I was intended to see it. It kept on for a long time and every time I moved to a different location it saw where I moved and changed its course to fly directly over me. Lately in the last month I have seen a large glowing ball, silver colored in the western sun, and also the long rod, in the west, that was shining. I don't know if it was reflecting the sun as it was setting or was lit.

                          I also saw a formation of dark triangles, though at first I thought it was geese, but on closer look, not birds. There were 7 of them and they just suddenly vanished. I have seen red lights at the edge of Venus, but have come to the conclusion that what we think is Venus is not, as 2 nights ago around 4 am, I went outside to look at Venus intentionally, and it slowly faded and went out before my eyes. I went in, had a snack and went back out. I watched it slowly reappear, get very bright and disappear again. I do live between 3 airports, and planes taking off will show a single bright light until they change position and I observe the flashing lights. I am an avid star watcher, and notice several months ago that when Venus is in west sky it is so bright that it looks like the airplane scene described above. Me and my neighbors came to the conclusion is not Venus. In the early morning in the East sky the same is true.

                          I think that many of the stars are not stars at all, but stars ships. Stars did not twinkle this much years ago, nor would a star change color while you watch it. One night recently, I saw 4 starships blink out. One night there was a star ship in the bowl of the big dipper. And recently, on clear nights I have noticed many totally new stars I have never seen. They also super twinkle and change colors and move sometimes. On the evening of June 20 around 10:30 pm my visiting 5 year old granddaughter saw something thru the window and was jumping up and down, so we went outside in our jammies and watched the stars. She did not find what she saw out the window, but we were treated to quite a show anyway as many of the "stars" were doing quite a dance in the sky and we again saw some that I had never seen particularly looking south. These 2 little girls had a wonderful time watching. It was all very obvious to them and they are still talking their little heads off about it.I have seen several other strange lights that don't match the planes I normally see. I have also seen a V shape object with 5 lights in the V that was silent. Folks, all these increased sightings are because we are about to have a brilliant wonderful "first contact" and I know of what I speak! Get ready!!

                          Thank you to the witness for the reports.

                          Los Angeles, California UFO Hovering Above Witness

                          Date: 1993

                          Message: Hello,

                          I would like to just say that in 1993 I was driving on a busy freeway ( interstate 10) in Los Angeles, California when ( being in rush hour traffic) the far left lane and at a complete stop, I heard out of no where..." Look Up" ! I thought it was very strange and so I rolled down my window and stuck my head out of my window and looked just above me, and to my surprise, there was this extremely large object hovering above me, maybe about 20 feet above my car and I looked around at all the cars next to me, but no one even noticed this object that to me seemed clearly visible.

                          At the time of the sitting, I felt really strange...like numb all over and really feeling like I needed to sleep. It still is so vivid to me even all of these years later, I remember seeing these huge yellow lights (maybe ten or so) and they were so bright...I wasn't able to see the sky in-between these lights, it was completely black , so I knew this was not an airplane and it was gone in seconds... it was just hovering above me and didn't make a sound.

                          I drove home that evening feeling like something had happened to me ( not in a bad way) but I just knew!

                          I really felt that this craft was there to see me, and only me.

                          Just wanted to share my story with you...hope it helps in some way.

                          Thank you to the witness for the report.

                          Hi. My name is (removed). I'm 63 years old and retired after 30 years in the newspaper business and four years in the U.S. Air Force Security Service (intelligence). Just thought I'd give you my credentials so you don't think I'm a kook.

                          Anyway, I've seen a few UFOs in my life, and most are types I've seen described elsewhere. But back in the 1990s -- it was the year Bob Dole was running for president (HBCC UFO Research Note: A quick check on the internet reveled that Bob Dole was running for president in 1996) -- I was a volunteer parent for my younger son's marching band. We were in Fresno, CA, for a marching band contest.

                          While the band was getting ready, I looked up and saw what looked like a bunch of black balloons that someone had released.

                          I went back to helping the band prepare, and then glanced up a few minutes later, expecting that the balloons would have gotten farther away from us and from each other. Instead, they were no farther away from us, but they were getting closer to each other.

                          I alerted others to this, and many in the band and among the other parents all looked up, shrugged and went back to what they were doing.

                          These black objects kept getting closer and closer together, moving very slowly. It took about an hour before they came together and coalesced. I kept pointing this out to everyone, but no one was impressed. One young band member told me it was probably helicopters.

                          Finally, they coalesced into a large, black mass, then flew away at about the speed of a propeller-driven craft, but made no noise.

                          I have never heard or read of this type of phenomenon anywhere else.

                          Thank you to the gentleman for his welcomed report. This comes from a long time professional and ex-military man.

                          Granite Bay, California Hovering Saucer

                          Date: Aril 24, 2004
                          Time: 8:00 p.m.

                          Number of witnesses: 1
                          Number of objects: 1
                          Shape of objects: Saucer shaped.

                          Full Description of event/sighting: On April 24th about 8 o'clock I was standing on my front porch after returning from dinner when I saw a bright light hovering in the sky above the ridge line to the east. For some reason I was curious and got in my truck and drove up the road to where the light was coming from. As I approached a turn in the road I noticed A metallic translucent saucer hovering over the eastern downward slope about 35 to 50 feet above the ground. It was making no noise, and for several minutes it remained motionless. It's size appeared to be about 30 feet in length. I observed the saucer and it's surface I now noticed was completely smooth, mirror like and glowing only slightly now. After several minutes The saucer began to move toward the road and my truck.

                          At this time I became distracted with my truck and began to feel afraid. When I looked up the saucer was almost directly overhead, it also appeared to have descended to about 25 feet above me. Then I felt disoriented for what seemed to be only a moment. the saucer moved back to its original location hovering over the downward slope of the hill. As I can only describe it as, I felt like I was coming to, when my truck shut engine died. I fumbled with the ignition trying to get my truck to start. Then oddly I saw a black sedan and a black suburban across the street with their running lights on not their headlights. Before the saucer moved over my car they were not parked across the street and it seemed that they were observing me and the saucer. Finally, the engine started and I left as quickly as I could. To me it felt like only 15 to 20 minutes had passed, but when I returned home the time was 10:45. I had left a 8:00 I lost 2 hours and 45 minutes.

                          Thank you to the witness for this interesting report.

                          Alexandria, Louisiana Black Orb Type Object

                          Date: June 2004
                          Time: 6:45 p.m.

                          (HBCC UFO Research Note: I have removed a portion from the following report to keep this witnesses personal information private, due to the position he holds in Alexandria, Louisiana. I called and I had a nice conversation with the person).

                          HI Brian,

                          Anyway, when I saw the post by the retired USAF serviceman describing a black balloon-like orb, it brought to mind a similar sighting I had here in Alexandria a little over a month ago.

                          It was about 6:45 p.m. and overcast on a day in late June. I had driven to the post office and was cutting through a parking lot by a hobby shop called Fads and Frames. I was busy tuning in the "Glenn Beck Program" when I happened to look up and saw this black balloon, or what appeared to be a black balloon. What struck me as odd was that this "balloon" would slowly move around but never seemed to rise higher in the air. Then it would move up higher. There was no visible string or tether. Then it began moving further away. I remained in the car listening to the radio and watching this thing and wondering if it was a spy balloon or something. I did take a picture (which I have not developed). At one point I looked away and it was gone. It was very eerie. It didn't act like a normal wayward balloon caught on an evening breeze (there was a slight breeze as I recall). In fact, about a week ago I was driving past the same area where I saw this and commented to my friend about the object. My friend didn't seem interested in pursuing it further.

                          Thank you to the witness for their report.

                          Saskatoon, Saskatchewan More Spheres

                          Date: August 6, 2004
                          Time: Approx: 2:00 p.m.

                          Yesterday, Aug. 6, in my office, about 2:00 in the afternoon I walked over to a window to check out what kind of day it was going to be. Being Friday it was nice to see hardly any wind, a bright blue sky with not a single cloud. Almost immediately I noticed something in the sky. It was coming in from the north east and moving very slowly to the south, no lights, just a single bright white sphere quite high up but very distinguishable. I wanted to get outside to the parking lot to get a better look as the window was giving me a limited view. But then I thought by the time I get out there it will be gone so I just decided to watch it until it went out of view over our building. I thought "wow" that was kewl as my eyes back tracked the path it took. As soon as my eyes reached the spot in the sky where I first noticed it, another one appeared at the same spot and took the exact path as the previous one did until it too left my view over the top of our building.

                          Now I'm getting excited as you can well imagine. I thought, well maybe its time to go outside for a smoke as I took one last scan of the little bit of sky I could see from the window. Right at that moment, from the opposite direction, appeared a black sphere travelling at a terrific rate of speed, from over our building headed northeast. It lasted maybe 2 or 3 seconds and it was gone. That was something I had never seen before and it happened so fast I started to second guess myself, did I really see it? But I know I did. By this time, my nose is almost pressed against the window trying to get as much of sky possible
                          in my line of sight (one of those long narrow windows) and again, from the west this time, a white sphere moving a little faster than the first two did. But this time as soon as it got right in the centre of my line of vision it just started zig zaggin, up and down, sideways at extreme right angles for a few seconds, then leveled off into a smooth straight line again for a bit, then repeated the same sequence of strange movements, then again leveling off to a smooth line disappearing into the east. Well, now I had to go outside, besides I think my co-workers were beginning to wonder why I was spending so much time with my head against the window.

                          Now outside, I'm leaning against the building with a terrific view. I'm thinking now I probably won't see anything. And it began to look like I wasn't going to see anything as about 10 minutes past by. This next part is a bit hard to explain. You know how when your looking at a large area and your eyes scanning back and forth? Well, that's what I was doing, so
                          you pretty well know what is up there at every given couple of seconds, especially if its noticeable. My eyes were scanning the sky back and forth, from the time I started at a particular point, where there was nothing, to the time it took to look at the rest of the sky and return to that point was maybe two seconds. But now not quite directly above me, slightly to the west as if it just appeared out of nowhere, sitting in the sky motionless, was a large pure white solid sphere. I say large because not that it was actually larger than others I have seen, but alot closer to me and not as high as they generally are. I was in total
                          amazement and my eyes glued to this object as I noticed just above it another one appear but very high up, I could actually see it come into sight, either it materialized or it simply just came down from the higher atmosphere, I don't know. It was just a dot, but also white, and it remained stationary at a much higher altitude as the larger object started to move slowly to the northeast. It must of taken 5 or 6 minutes for it to cross the sky and then it just stopped motionless. As the larger one crossed the sky, I kept looking over at the second one that was much higher up and it just sat in the same location, never moving, as if it was keeping watch or something, who knows. This was so amazing, I could keep going on, but it all ended about five minutes later after both of them remaining motionless, the larger one just disappeared while I was looking at it, I looked back over at the one that was higher and it was already gone.

                          That's about it, truly amazing, thought provoking and mysterious. Thanks again Brian for the great work your doing, please keep it up.

                          Thank you to the witness for the excellent report.

                          Auburn, CA Three Orbs

                          Date: August 6, 2004
                          Time: Approx: 6:55 p.m.

                          I would like to mention that yesterday evening at approximately 6:55 p.m. local time I witnessed three orbs of light coming out of the setting sun. I was going for my evening walk down (removed) here in Auburn, CA when, I saw the first of the three orbs coming out of the setting sun. I quickly got out my binoculars which I carry with me and was able to track and view the last of the three orbs. It was translucent yet very white and bright. It was constantly changing shape, going from circular to a dodecahedron shape with star or pointed like protrusions coming out of the circumference and then back to circular. All three orbs passed over me at great speed. They looked like about 15,000 feet in altitude and after passing over me they disappeared. I believe that these three orbs are portents to more serious sunspot activity within the next two to three weeks. ( Two nights past I witnessed one very bright orb appearing in the eastern sky UNDER the cloud layer. It made a 90 degree turn to it's left in an instant then traveled for approximately an inch at my arm's length and disappeared rapidly.)

                          Thank you to the witness for the report.

                            HBCC UFO Research Recently Reported Sightings



                            Unreported Daylight UFO sighting - Monmouth County, NJ - Summer, 1959

                            On a warm summer evening in early July of that year, I, my family along with several neighbors were witnesses to a unique daylight UFO sighting that to this day has never been reported or satisfactorily explained. The object observed was that of a shiny metallic sphere having the appearance of silver or liquid mercury. Its approximate size on retrospect was about that of a pencil eraser held at arms length. The sphere also displayed flashing red and white lights that seemed to flash randomly all around it mainly at its equator.

                            What makes this sighting even more interesting is that the location of the farm from which we viewed the object is adjacent to the U.S. Navy road and railroad that links NWS (then NAD) Earle (the main munitions storage facility in Colts Neck, NJ) to its pier facilities located in Leonardo, NJ (on Raritan Bay). The road itself is restricted to only military use, primarily that of moving naval munitions from the secure storage facilities at the Colts Neck site to the various Naval ships that tie up to the piers located at the Leonardo facility.

                            It has long been "rumored" that the inventory stored at Earle included conventional as well as "other" types of "non-conventional" munitions. At the time of the sighting, my father, was employed as a farmhand by a Mr. Murray Rosenberg, then owner of Dorbrook farms as well as Miles Shoes stores (a national shoe chain). We lived in a modest farmhouse on the site facing the road then known as RD#1, Eatontown. Our house also directly faced the Navy road that was approximately several hundred yards away. Looking from my front porch, across this highway one could easily view the government road then known as Normandy Road, or just "the Navy Road" that was just across a large field to the east of the RD#1, Eatontown.

                            It should also be noted that the farms location is especially important because of its proximity to two critical military facilities that to this day, are still considered significant and militarily important installations. Dorbrook farm (now a Monmouth county park) is approximately 4 miles from the research and development facilities located at Fort Monmouth (Communications and Electronics Command) as well as about a mile from Naval Weapons Station Earle base entrance (again, the Normandy road railroad and its service road are directly adjacent to the farm itself).

                            Unfortunately, because of the passage of years, I must estimate the day and time of the sighting. The time, in my estimation was between 6:00pm and 8:00pm eastern daylight savings time and was probably on a weekday night. The object itself was moving in a south southwesterly direction at a speed of approximately 60 to 120 mph and at an altitude of between 1000 to 3000 feet (note the size and distance were a little hard to determine at the time). The location from which we viewed the object was from the front porch of my house and is highlighted in the diagram below. Also on this diagram, I have added some graphics that indicate the approximate location of the object in relation to the farm as well as the direction of flight and the bearing from the witnesses. (See graphics and photo on the next page):

                            The map above and the photograph below indicate the current configuration of the Farm as it is today. Unfortunately, the house in which I lived and from where the observation was made was demolished this summer however, it is still located on this particular map and is indicated as such. Please note: Fort Monmouth is located roughly 4 miles to the east of the farm. The photo below looks down at the Navy road, RD#1 and the clustered farm buildings. The Navy road in this picture runs from North to South.

                            As was previously mentioned, the object was also sighted several miles to the north of the Dorbrook and was actually reported to have landed on a marshy area around Newman Springs Road and River Plaza. The location of this sighting area would fall right on a straight line drawn from the Leonardo facility directly to the Ammunition Depot located in Colts Neck. The object was seen taking off from that marshy area located between Red Bank and River Plaza where the Swimming and Navesink rivers meet (see map below right).

                            A silver/mercury colored sphere with random red and white blinking was the observed during the sighting mentioned above. This sphere (simulated in the above picture) approximates the size of the object at the time of the sighting. Again, the true color of the spheroid object was not gold/bronze but rather silver/mercury. Note: This object was also sighted on the ground several miles away by an independent observer whom I came across years later.

                            In closing, the report as it is presented here is accurate to the best of my knowledge. I was a principal in the sighting along with my father, mother and sister and several other witnesses who also resided on the farm during that period. I actually met the additional witness of what appears to be the same sighting approximately 10 years ago. He stated that he observed it taking off from a location several miles away from where we were.

                            As it took off, the independent witness stated that it was his recollection that the object appeared to be heading in the direction where we eventually viewed our sphere. The actual course would have taken it over NWS Earle and our farm. This additional witness who related his story to me currently works for the Army at Fort Monmouth.

                            Thank you very much to the witness for this report.

                            U.S. Coast Guard Serviceman Witnesses Object

                            Brian,


                            After viewing your website (excellent site), I came across your Military sightings section. I do have 3 personal sighting experiences of my own.

                            Two while I was on duty in the U.S. Coast Guard and one, while growing up living within a mile of a major weapons storage facility (NWS Earle) in New Jersey.

                            The two sightings and one possible that took place while on active duty took place in 1969 and 1970. The first one was while my ship was on Ocean Station Victor (approximately 34.0 N by 165 E) in the western pacific. The second (possible) took place around Con Son island in the Gulf of Siam right off of the coast of Vietnam. The last sighting (daylight visual) took place while steaming from Guam back to Oahu approximately 200 miles from Eniwetok atoll
                            (approximately 17.0 N by 167.0 E). The first sighting was visual and radar with 3 objects being tracked at speeds of between 3200 and 3600 mph. This sighting I believe was duly reported via prescribed SOP. The other two were not
                            reported.

                            The sighting that took place around 1959 near the Naval Weapons Station was a daylight sphere (silver with red and white random flashing lights randomly placed surrounding, but not attached to the object. It was flying at slow speed over the Navy road and railroad and on a course coming from the Navy pier several miles away on the Raritan Bay (NYC harbor). Its course would take it directly to the secure WSA on the base proper (Colts Neck). This sighting never made any local papers or reports as near as I could tell.

                            The possible sighting was actually right off of the coast of Vietnam and took place while holding swim call. An object of approximately 90 go 100' long and approximately 30' wide sailed silently underneath of my while at anchor. It was observed by approximately 10 people who were on anchor and guard duty from the port bridge wing (44 feet above the water line). The object was heading from starboard to port under the rear third of the ship and directly under the men who were swimming off of the fantail. My ship was the CGC Mellon (WHEC 717).

                            Thank you to the witness for the very interesting reports.

                            Sherwood Park, Alberta Sightings

                            Date: Between 1983 and 1985
                            Time: Between 7:00 and 8:00 p.m.

                            Message: I am trying to find information on two events I witnessed in Sherwood Park, Alberta between 1983 and 1985. First, in the winter of 1983/84 I was returning from my paper route one night (likely between 7 and 8pm) and saw what seemed like a giant ball of fire of ice (with a tail like a comet) streak across the sky. It was extremely large and appeared to be close enough to crash within 100km or so. I'm pretty sure it was mentioned in the Edmonton Journal and was reported to have crashed in northern Alberta. However, I have been unable to find anything whatsoever on it more recently - and would like to know what it is I saw.

                            Not long after seeing this "meteorite" my friends and I saw a ball of fire slowly crashing toward the earth with a very long trail of dark smoke behind it. This was in June of 1985. We rode our bikes as far as we could but realized that it was going to crash too far away for us to catch. It fell straight down and rather slowly (we were able to see it in the air for quite some time). Again, I have been unable to find any mention of this event anywhere either.

                            Thank you to the witness for the report.

                            Toronto, Ontario Blue, Metallic, Spherical Object

                            Date: Summer of 2003
                            Time: Daytime sighting

                            Message: Last summer I was parked about 2 blocks west of Yonge and Eglinton, I was helping unload my mother in laws wheelchair. My mother in law pointed out a jet laying a chunky chemtrail on a western direction right above us. It was funny because I had only just told her about "chemtrails" the previous evening. While we were looking up we all noticed
                            what seemed to be a blue, metallic, spherical object following the jet and moving in, out and around the trail. I estimate it was one tenth the size of the jet, we saw it continue to trail the jet until we couldn't see either anymore.

                            Since then, my wife (along with half of Yorkville) witnessed 3 similar objects putting on quite the show to the amazement of dozens of people in Yorkville. There were three of them making strange maneuvers at high speed, it lasted a good 10 minutes as it was related to me as it happened over a cellphone.

                            Thank you to the witness for the report.

                            Spanish Fork, Utah Bat Shaped Object

                            Date: June 8, 2004
                            Time: 11:00 p.m.

                            Hi Brian,

                            I came across your post on the UFO Sightings report on June 8th 2004. My husband and I were watching the meteor shower last night about 11:00 p.m. and we both saw this strange almost see through object fly above us. We could see the outline and it reminded me of a bat or a kite, but it was bigger than that. So I was wondering if you have found any answers to your experience? It didn't make any noise and it flew over us about 3 times while we were laying on the grass star gazing, then we got spooked and went inside :)

                            Thanks.

                            Additional Information:

                            Q. - First of all could you please tell me where you are located ? Town, state, province, which ever ?

                            A. - Spanish Fork, UT

                            Q. - In what part of the sky was the UFO located? North, South, East, West?

                            A. - On the horizon or straight overhead or somewhere in between? We were stargazing it moved right over us from west to east.

                            Q. - As it moved, could you determine roughly how fast it traveled , how far, etc..

                            A. - It moved slow enough that we realized something was moving, but fast enough that by the time we realized what was going on it was gone or it blended into the night sky so we couldn't make out the outline any longer.

                            Q. - Describe the appearance of the UFO: shape, size, distance, color, texture.

                            A. - It was see through and the middle of it seemed wavy like an old window pane. I thought it was about as long as a house, but my husband says it wasn't that big. It reminded us of bat wings or a kite but the object was bigger. The color was translucent. It seemed as if we could see the sky through it.

                            Q. - Describe the area in which you made the sighting. Is it near an airport? An Air Force Base? A military or research installation of any kind?

                            A. - It isn't near any of these things, but we are very close to the crop circle that was discovered here. There is also a mine that is located in the next town.

                            Q. - How far up in altitude do you think it was from your location ? (rough guess).

                            A. - I would say about 200 feet maybe less.

                            Q. - You also mentioned that is was larger than a bat or a kite, thinking back, would you say it was twice or more larger than a kite, etc. This is why I asked for a rough guess on how high it might have been, if flying around the same height as a small plane, jet airliner or just over tree top.

                            A. - It was probably above or at the tree line. It was hard to tell because it was so dark. It was about twice as big as a tree or kite.

                            Q. - How long were you able to watch the whole event for ?

                            A. - My husband saw it first but passed it off as a bat. Then I noticed it and we saw it again so in all it was probably 10-15 minutes. Then like I said I got scared and we went inside.


                            Thank you to the witness for the report.

                            I ordered a lens attachment that is going to triple my optical zoom. I wish I had it today.At work, 4:00 p.m. same place as usual, looking out the parking garage towards the East. This object moved against the wind and it was windy at the time of taping. This object does a "cartwheel" and is giving off pastel colors if you look closely. Very cool, just thought you'd want to be in the loop.

                            Thank you to the fellow for the interesting footage and report.

                            Rossland, B.C. Orange Ball Followed By Lights

                            Date: August 11, 2004
                            Time: Approx: 10:00 p.m.

                            I received a call from a witness on Sunday August 15, 2004 who explained about a sighting he had in Rossland, British Columbia. The witness was previously living at his parents home which is located just below one of the local mountains in the Rossland area. The fellow stepped outside and after standing viewing the night sky for approx five minutes he saw an extremely bright orange falling star. It was coming from a northerly direction. As he observed the quick moving object he thought to himself that this was an amazing spectacle. The man watched the orange glowing ball of light as it disappeared
                            behind the mountain.

                            Approx: 5 to 10 seconds later after the bright orange object had vanished behind the mountain, the witness observed a number of flickering lights which appeared out of no where. (the area where the flickering lights appeared was exactly where the fellow lost sight of the orange ball of light). The color of the three lights went from white to red, and it just sat there. The lights did go dimmer at one point but grew in brightness and changed colors again. At times the lights would appear to be bobbing up and down and would move from side to side. As the light moved, the light on one end would dim a bit while the light at the other end grew brighter. At one point in the sighting the witness saw a blue light which he said was flashing on and off.

                            The day after the sighting took place he decided to go up onto the mountain with his digital camera to see if anything was around, or to see what might have caused the lights, but nothing was there. At this point he is thinking it possibly could have been a vehicle on the road the night before, but after really checking things out he believes it wasn't this..... as the trees, etc would have certainly blocked out any light source coming off the mountain where he had seen the lights. The fellow thinks whatever it was, had to be hovering just above the tree tops. The whole event lasted for approx: 5 to 8 minutes.

                            One other interesting thing to the report was that there were dogs and cats acting up while this event was taking place. If there is any connection between the animals and what was seen is unknown.

                            Thank you to the witness for the report.

                            Date: August 13, 2004
                            Time: 9:44 - 9:50 p.m.

                            Full Description of event/sighting: I was out taking random pictures with a Sony, digital. Using no flash and no backlight. I was facing North when I started with 1/8 turn between pictures. The ones enclosed are from the E-NE direction. Orb was about 25 feet from ground and I can't tell how far away it was from me, nothing visible to gauge by. the other four may be a UFO, I didn't see any lights in that direction when I just pointed and took it but I took two right after the other so UFO-8 is in N-NE direction, while UFO-9 is more to the north. I cannot judge the UFO pictures as I didn't have a landmark to go by.

                            Thank you to the witness for the report.

                            Hello Brian,

                            Once again I have information on something which my Son and I observed at 20:45 14th of August 2004, in Scotland, South Lanarkshire.

                            I have attached a digital impression of what we seen. It is nearly exactly what we observed.

                            While up at a model flying club with my Son, we observed this silvery object flying from South to North. The sky was broken with blue sky behind the cloud, The object passed over us and reflected the sun enormously. The object was like a mirror. The object seemed to be in the shape of two ball-bearings joined about a third together. Very bright and shining in the setting Sun. It was not a plane and there was no sound. I have observed planes at high altitude against a blue sky and the wings can always be seen. There was no contrails either. The object was very high to reflect the Sun the way it did. Some high level planes passed over minuets later but could be seen and heard as aircraft.

                            Thank you to the witness for their report.

                            Hi Brian, I want to report UFO sighting Aug.14,2004 at 6:15 p.m. over the Durham Region (Pickering to Oshawa) high about 30,000 feet or more. Over the shoreline of Lake Ontario, coin like in shape with white light (not too intense) floating very slowly high in the sky with blue sky background. Observed with binoculars round object of white light. Object was so high,would have been very difficult to see with the naked eye if you were not sky watching for UFO's.Observation time duration was 15-20 minutes. (that's how slow the object floated) This is my first sighting this year, as last year was 15.

                            Take care and I'll keep watching.

                            Thank you to the witness for the report.

                              Mr. Vike,

                              I wish to pass on this information, it has become part of my local lore. For some reason, I have come into contact with many people who are witness to unusual craft and events. I myself while vacationing in Minnesota in 1978, saw a high altitude light moving at a high rate of speed and making a sharp direction change, however I have never seen anything close enough to make out a structure.

                              Historic UFO reports:

                              Littleton, Massachusetts

                              Date: Fall of 1967 or '68

                              In the fall of 1967 or '68, in Littleton, Massachusetts, A UFO was witnessed by two adults, and five or six children. The object they saw was viewed by the entire group, with and without the aid of binoculars. This story was told to me by one of the children who was a witness to the strange light in the sky. Her story goes like this:

                              To the best of her memory, the sighting occurred on a fall evening at dusk, in '68 or '67. She was fourteen or fifteen years of age at that time. She and her brother were playing outside with neighborhood friends when they all noticed an illuminated object to the N.E. of their position on the street, in the direction of Littleton center.

                              The lit object was hovering low on the horizon, over a large field above tree height. It could have been as close as one hundred yards or a mile away. It was difficult to determine how close or how large the object was. To get an idea of the size of this object, I asked her to hold out her arm and put up her thumb. I asked her if her thumb would have covered the object
                              and she said no. She seems to think it was at least the size of a half-dollar at arms length. She said that the object was the shape of a football, not quite a disk, but not a circle either. The object appeared to get larger and then smaller, or that maybe
                              it just got closer and then moved further away. It made no sound, but it was giving off a bright yellowish/orange glow.

                              Her brother had time to run home and get their mother and their binoculars, while one of the other children's mother was summoned as well. Both adults and the five or six children took turns viewing this object, which is reported to have moved
                              back and forth, and/or changed size. The interesting detail of this craft is that it appeared to have cells of square windows with rounded corners, recessed or set into the object, like a honeycomb. The cells or windows covered the visible side of the UFO.

                              The entire sighting lasted approximately fifteen to twenty minutes. Her mother went home and called the radio personality,
                              Mr. Carl DeSouze, of WBZ radio, an AM station in Massachusetts, and reported her sighting. Mr. DeSouze had an interest in U.F.O. sightings and would take call-ins and report them on air. She reported that her mother said that Mr. DeSouze had
                              received other calls concerning a similar object.

                              She related another story concerning UFOs:

                              In the early '60s there lived several USAF families living near her home in Littleton, Massachusetts. One of her neighbors was Col. Poland, a fighter pilot. Col. Poland and two other fighter pilots were flying over Massachusetts out of Hanscom airbase in Bedford, Massachusetts, sometime between 1960 and 1963. A cigar-shaped U.F.O. escorted them at their altitude and speed before vanishing off at a high rate of speed. The pilots talked about it over their communication link.

                              Upon landing they were told that what they saw was just swamp gas or some such lame cover story and told never to discuss it with anyone or they would be punished. Well, Col Poland decided not to keep quiet and told his family, her and the neighbors.

                              Thank you to the gentleman for relating these stories for us all to enjoy.

                              Muenchweiler, Germany Disc Witness At Army Post

                              HBCC UFO Research Note: If anyone who was living/stationed in Muenchweiler, Germany at the American Army Post, or anyone who may have been witness to this sighting, even heard about it taking place. Would you please be kind enough to share the information with me. The witness would also like to know if other had seen this also. I also removed all of the last name of the people to protect their privacy. Thank you, Brian.


                              Date: 1980
                              Time: 4:00 p.m.

                              Number of witnesses: 2
                              Number of objects: 1
                              Shape of objects: Silver disc.

                              Full Description of event/sighting: My friend Michelle and I were only 12. We were living in Muenchweiler, Germany, and American Army Post.

                              We both lived in the same stairwell. We walked behind the American elementary school which was roughly about 1000 feet from our stairwell. We were shocked to find a UFO silver disc with no windows hovering less than fifty feet in the air from where we stood. It just hovered there, no noise, nothing.

                              We ran to get more of our friends to be witnesses but when we returned it was just gone. It was just hovering there in clear daylight and adjacent to the elementary school was a fence separating German town from the military post housing.

                              Is there anyone out there who might have been living in Pirmasens or Muenchweiler in the early 1980s who might have
                              witnessed something similar? My father at the time was the provost marshal for all of Pirmasens. Does anyone out there
                              know Angela (last name removed) or William (last name removed)? Or Michelle (last name removed).

                              Additional Information:

                              Brian,

                              Hi! Thanks for your quick response.

                              I actually came across your web site, because I typed the name of a city in Germany where my father was the Provost Marshall for the American MPs. We lived in Germany from 1977-1982. The Army Post where we were stationed is called "Pirmasens". I was feeling nostalgic and just happened to google the name "Pirmasens, Germany", and your web site came up, because another American dependent happened to have a report on your UFO website for when he witnessed a UFO in Pirmasens.

                              That was amazing to me, because I have often wondered in my life who else may have seen that UFO.

                              There were two (2) military housing units for Army servicemen in Pirmasens. One was located in Pirmasens, and the other was located about a 20 minute drive away in a smaller housing unit called Muenchweiler. There's where our military post housing was. Our particular stairwell faced the elementary school I mentioned in the report. There is a huge gap between where the housing was and where the elementary school stood. I would be happy to send you a photograph of the school, if you like. Behind the elementary school were Army storage pools. Left and adjacent to the elementary school was a fence separating military housing (quarters) from what was called German town. And way to the back of German town was a huge forest that has something called a "TrimDisch".

                              The only people who know about this story, besides you now, are my husband and my father.

                              The UFO was so close to me and Michelle (last name removed) (the other witness) that if we had 2x the size of a ladder we could have touched it.

                              Do you know of any other people who have witnessed a UFO in the Pirmasens/Muenchweiler district between the years 1979-1981?

                              What stuck out most about the sighting was (1) how close it physically was in the sky , (2) no noise came from it whatsoever (3) no windows or obvious lights (4) slender, all silver round disc. The only possible place for an opening was the very bottom of the disc, which had a round shape. It just levitated in the air, very quietly, in the middle of the late afternoon. It was bright sunshine outside.

                              I've always been surprised by that because anyone on the opposite side of German town would have been able to see it easily by walking by the fence. I have often wondered if it was not indeed a product of the military, given, as I stated before, that there was a military storage pool further behind the elementary school where the UFO was sighted by me and Michelle (last name removed)..

                              As for the other teenage witness (I'm now 37.), Michelle (who would today be 38 yrs. old), I have no idea where she is now. Her father was also Army military personnel.

                              Thank you to the witness for this interesting report.

                              Kingsland, Texas Lights Circling Around The Craft

                              Date: May to August ?
                              Time: Nightime

                              Hi Brian,

                              Here is another picture I took the night of the meteorite shower, which it was cloudy and I couldn't see anything. So I missed the meteorite shower. But things still seem to show up even if you cant see them. I have several more pictures. Some are weird, but may not be anything. I have always been interested in the sky, ever since my husband and two of our friends saw an object that followed us all the way to town from a back road about 25 miles. After we got to town we went to the race track (horses) it was out there to, outside town where you could see the sky without lights of town. Then we went to the
                              airport, about 2 miles out of town, it followed us there too. We got scared and took our friends home and then we went home.

                              I have seen things in the sky that I can't explain ever since we saw this object, by the way was right over our truck. I saw the saw object on your site (I think) (picture) looked just like the one we saw. My girlfriend, when I talked to her didn't want to discuss it, said she didn't know what it was (very religious person). The thing was huge and had lights circling around it, pulsing around in different colors. We were really scared! My husband and I had not been married very long. I think it was around anywhere from May to August. School initiation night for the freshmen going into school (they don't do that anymore, Seniors got to wild with what they made the young freshmen kids do). Anyway back to the subject, I'm sorry this is so long. I just wanted to tell you about this. I think about it all the time.Thanks again.

                              At least there were four of us to witness this. It was so big and bright I couldn't make out what shape it was except I knew it was circular because the lights went around it.

                              Thank you to the witness for the report.

                              Full Description of event/sighting: I was driving on the freeway in Northern California with my two cousins. We were traveling approximately 70mph westbound and were coming into Livermore California. The freeway runs right between Livermore and Dublin. I've lived in both towns as a small child so am familiar with the area completely. I noticed this object to the right of the freeway, hovering over to the right, over Dublin. It wasn't far from the freeway, approximately 1 mile to the right of the freeway. It was a grey craft. It was bell-shaped. It had windows and the windows were lit up white; as if there were lights on inside. The windows were square. The base of the craft had lights flashing on and off. Midway up towards the middle of the craft was another set of lights, sequentially flashing, one after the other. The colors of the flashing lights were red, green, blue and white. There was a door to the craft. I could barely make the door out. We pulled over on the side of the freeway where we noticed many other people had pulled over too. A couple were out of their cars pointing at the object. We watched the craft rock back and forth as it hovered and then it began to move over the freeway, away from the onlookers, towards a hill that was positioned to the left side of the freeway where Livermore is at.

                              The town of Livermore California is where Lawrence of Livermore lab is. That's where a lot of blueprints and top secret government/military information is created, stored, etc. We saw the craft make it's way very slowly towards the town of Livermore, ascending higher and higher at a very slow rate. Once it was positioned somewhere just above the city it suddenly shot up straight into the night sky. The sky was very clear, a very clear starlit night. We noticed our clock had stopped. I went on to take my cousin to the airport, 50miles away, returned home that night, turned on the news and didn't notice anything. I called the police station and asked if anyone had reported any sightings, they denied any.

                              VERY INTERESTING.

                              Thank you to the witness for the really interesting report.

                              Langley, B.C. Bright Orange Object

                              Date: June 3, 2004
                              Time: 2:30 a.m.

                              Remember when there was the meteor sightings over the pacific northwest. I forget the exact date. It was on all the major news outlets. Well...I saw something which makes me doubt that was only a meteor or the same as what was seen over Seattle.

                              I was in Langley, BC working security on a construction site on (deleted) Avenue at 215. After 0230 I saw a bright flash in the corner of my eye when I turned to figure out what was I saw, a bright orange object only about 100 feet and across the street and just above the roof line of the houses appeared then just blinked out. The best way to describe it. There was no explosion and didn't see it explode. It just blinked out. A few minutes later I heard rumbling.

                              I hope was clear with my description.

                              Thank you to the witness for the report.

                              Bilston, Wolverhampton, West Midlands U.K Gray Metallic Object

                              Date: July 18, 1998
                              Time: Midnight

                              Full Description of event/sighting: I had on this particular night been in bed early after a bout of stomach ache. I woke suddenly and I was unaware of the time, I thought it must be around 3:30 a.m. I checked my watch, it showed precisely midnight. I looked thru the curtains to the rear of the flats in my bedroom, this faces west in direction. As I looked above the adjacent houses I saw a gray metallic object 40 to 50 ft long. It was close, probably 300 yards at most and seemed to be 500 feet or less in height, clear enough that I could identify what appeared to be windows around a cockpit on the top. I cant remember any lights as I was petrified with fear. There was no noise, although I had double glazed windows. An aircraft I am sure would have made noise, I could hear the noise from the power station a mile away most nights. It continued fairly slowly for about 15 seconds in a northerly direction then started to gain height as it moved from view behind a high-rise called Arthur Greenwood Court.

                              The next day a neighbor asked if I had seen this too, as he and his brother had also been watching from their window in the same block of maisonettes. I wouldn't normally report this but I have seen on the web another report from the Wellington Road. I lived off the other end of Wolverhampton Street which intersects Wellington Road (A 41) from the south in a small street called Jenkins, close to where this other report can be found here: http://www.ufoinfo.com/roundup/v03/rnd03_30.shtml I would further like to add, I had at the time no interest in the phenomenon of UFO sightings and have been known as a person that would try to pass off or debunk sightings. But to me this was incontravertible evidence that I simply could not explain away, although I have tried to.

                              Thank you to the witness for their report.

                              Sioux Lookout, Ontario Three Round Objects

                              Date: July 30, 2004
                              Time: 10:00 - 11:00 p.m.

                              Number of witnesses: 1
                              Number of objects: 3
                              Shape of objects: Round

                              Full Description of event/sighting: I had my glasses on so I wasn't seeing things. There were three light colored objects which were very low flying. I thought they were seagulls at first but they stayed in a perfect triangle the whole time and flew in a exact straight line. They went from north to south and had no lights what so ever, so I ruled out planes. I waited for a sound of a jet or plane as well, you know cause the sound usually comes a little later. There was no sound. So that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Who ever reads this, just wanted to let you know because I just read the Dryden paper and apparently there has been a few sightings there. They are only an hour away. I told a few other people as well the night of so I have verbal witnesses, but no one else actually saw them.

                              Thank you to the witness for the report.

                              Federal Way, Washington Strange Star-Like Object


                              Date: Approx: August 10, 2004
                              Time: Late evening/Early morning

                              On, or about, August 10th my boyfriends mother, sister and myself went outside to watch the Meteor Showers. We positioned ourselves outside on the walkway in chairs and settled down to watch what was supposed to be one of the most incredible Meteor Showers yet. As we sat down in our chairs I noticed a weird star like object appearing above the roof tops. I pointed it out to my boyfriends mother and sister, and we became memorized. It gradually began to rise higher above the roof tops and we were able to get a more "full on" view. It appeared to be a star at first, but we couldn't help but notice how much brighter it was than all the other stars that were out. It continued to rise... very, very slowly, and we noticed that it was flashing an array of colors. Red/Orange ... blue... and kind of a whitish yellow..... we rushed in to get the binoculars, and were able to see it a little bit clearer. In the course of an hour and a half or two hours, it moved from it's original position in the North... to a more North eastern position.

                              Not fast, but none the less moving while no other stars were. We watched it for as long as we possible could then came in to go to bed. We have been faithful about going outside to look for it and have noticed a strange pattern. As of last night, August 17th... exactly one week from the first day that we originally saw it, it had move drastically. We stepped out the from door to the West, and there it was! We immediately ran over to where we had seen it first and it wasn't there. We stood outside with the binoculars and noticed that there as a strange white solid (not flashing like the object) light that looked like it came from the object.... moved to the Southeast at a decent pace, and then all of the sudden faded out. We came back inside for approx. 30 minutes... returned back outside at 11:56 p.m... and the light was gone. We walked down the sidewalk to where we had seen it first and sure enough it was there! I tried to take several pictures of it and the stars around it showed up, but the object wasn't present in any of the pictures. Needless to say were going tonight to get a telescope. Please let us know if anyone else in the Federal Way, Auburn, Puyallup, Tacoma, Sumner area have seen anything like this.

                              Thank you for your time.

                              Thank you to the witness for the report.

                              Date: August 13, 2004
                              Time: 3:45 a.m.

                              Another sighting...2 nights after the last one I reported to you. Aug.13- 3:45 a.m.

                              Same light,motionless, soundless, bright flickering white ball of light, size of a grape, at arms length. East-75 degrees in the horizon.

                              It seemed to be closer...and much brighter than the other night. So much brighter, I was able to snap some pictures of it. I also saw a passenger jet fly very close to it, I'm sure the pilot must have seen it.

                              The light lasted for about 20 minutes the stars moved, but the light remained in its stationary position. It was still there in the sky when I went back to bed.

                              I know this is not a star...because it is not out every night...and much to bright...and sometimes motionless???

                              I wish the pictures were better...but I'm surprised it captured it at all....my cheap digital camera does not do well with night shots....it has to be bright, or nothing.

                              Thank you to the witness for the report.

                              Phoenix, Arizona UFOs

                              Date: August 15, 2004

                              It was rather breezy today 15-20mph coming from the West and variable cloudiness with thunderstorms developing to the North. I noticed a chemtrail being formed (under 10K ft. estimate) and usually when there are chemtrails being formed there are orbs somewhere in the vicinity. Today was no exception.

                              This white orb was seen heading South then veered off to the East then changed directions South again. Making a 90 degree direction change from East to West and hesitating before it takes off out of sight to the South behind my trees. It was lower than 2000', size unknown. Just a white orb.

                              After seeing this orb I was rather excited and decided to hang out and see if anything else comes by. As luck would have it I saw a hive of orbs hovering to the South and almost directly ahead. I would guess it was under 2000' high 20' long and there's about 40-50 orbs in two rows with the tip of the hive red and the rest white. It looked like a seahorse in the sky especially the way it moved. It rotated and hovered for a good 15 minutes when something strange happened.

                              On the red tip end there seemed to be something a few feet under it like an orb following it or checking it out. They looked in sync. A minute later another object is dislodged down from the hive and almost meets up with the other orb already there. The hive spit out a total of 3 orbs, the last one coming out to the left of it and they seemed to follow in close proximity to the hive and then disappeared. I video taped the hive for 45 minutes when another set of orbs appeared to the South and zoomed by before I can catch up to it. I did capture another set of orbs a few minutes later but it started to storm and the show ended.

                              I noticed one thing when I was watching the hive...it looked like there was something coming out of the red tip like a string but after the orbs came out of the hive the string like thing was not there anymore. By reviewing the video over and over I don't see how, with a windy day, the hive hovered for 15 minutes then decided to head East. It only headed East after the other objects were released from it.

                              I will send two clips with this story so you can see the white light that makes a 90 degree turn.

                              Thank you Brian and give my best to all.

                              Thank you to the witness for the report.

                              Scarborough, Ontario White Object

                              Date: August 16, 2004
                              Time: 12:05 p.m.

                              Hi Brian, another sighting over Scarborough at approx.12:05 p.m. Monday Aug.16, 2004. Again coming from the west a white object very high, extreme white colour with no light. Shape appeared rounded with a slow floating action with a slight lift on one side and also as if it was slightly changing shape. I rounded up 4 witnesses, 3 observed in disbelief while the fourth said it was a plastic white bag. Wind was happening, as you can see flying fluffy seeds moving at a good speed from south to north. This object hang in the sky coming from the west to east for at least 15 minutes, than turn north into clouds. Can plastic white bags create their own direction? Height I would estimate was 10-20,000 feet. ( Do plastic white bags fly that high?) Binoculars were used and this object appeared strange. ( NOT A BAG)

                              Conditions of the sky was blue with a slight haze. Cloudy to the north of Cumulus clouds were we lost sight of it. Duration was close to 20 minutes of sighting and one half hour later observed high flying white military jets dispensing chem trails. I noticed today a new moon, as over 75 % of all my 2003 sightings happened on a full, new or quarter moon. Before this sighting, at 10:10 a.m. sighted white object that look like there were like 2 or 3 flying close together like one. Observed with binoculars on my own, lasted about 2 minutes high again at least 8-10,000 feet. Southwest of were I sat, as I lifted binoculars down to see again with the naked eye lost sight of it. Is it possible there is a flap happening very high in the sky and that's why on clear days jets spray these chem trails to muck up the sky for visuals? I'm really sorry I don't have pictures and even if I did, you would not get much of a picture because of the high altitude. (maybe a small dot) Have fun and quality time with your dad and I keep sky watching. It does feel good to have witnesses because seeing is believing.

                              Thank you to the witness for the report.

                              Date: August 19, 2004
                              Time: 11:45 p.m.

                              Shape of objects: Orb (as best I could tell)

                              Full Description of event/sighting: Last night, shortly before bedtime, I felt an urge to walk outside in front of my house and look at the sky. It was completely overcast, with intermittent rain. There was not a star to be seen. I looked over toward Airport Mesa, which is roughly 1/2 mile from my house as the crow flies. Hovering just to the right of Airport Mesa (guesstimated altitude: 1-2000 feet) was a somewhat dim fluorescent bluish-white spherical (as best I could tell) pulsing light. It remained completely stationary. About five minutes later, it was joined by a similar object which remained stationary at the treeline near the southern tip of Airport Mesa. The two objects seemed to pulsate in a coordinated sequence/pattern. After about another 10 minutes or so, it began to rain again, so I went back inside. These two objects were the only luminous things in the sky at that time.

                              Thank you to the witness for the report.

                              Cambridge, Ontario Two Object Flying Parallel To One Another

                              Date: August 20. 2004
                              Time: 10:38 p.m.

                              Number of witnesses: 1
                              Number of objects: 2
                              Shape of objects: Plane like - had wings.

                              Full Description of event/sighting: I went out side on our patio for a smoke. Was just watching the sky when 2 objects went flying by very fast. They were flying parallel to each other, but seemed to be weaving back and forth. It was kind of hazy and made them look orange in colour. They flew extremely fast and I only saw them for about 5 seconds. Thought they might be a meteor, but they didn't go quite as fast like meteors go through the sky and the fact they were together makes me wonder.

                              There was no sound like there usually is when a plane flies over.

                              Additional Information:

                              Q. - Can you please describe the weather. Was it Overcast? Raining? A clear night? Full moon?
                              A. - No Full moon. The weather was nice. No rain, though it seemed a bit hazy. It seemed clear above our house as I was gazing at the stars.

                              Q. - In what part of the sky was the UFO located? North, South, East, West? On the horizon or straight overhead or somewhere in between?

                              A. - There was two of them going north to south.

                              Q. - Describe the appearance of the UFO: shape, size, distance, color, texture, sound. The reason why i left the question in about the sound was, I noticed you mentioned that the objects didn't make a noise like aircraft do, but wondering was there any noise at all, and if so would you be able to describe it for me please ?

                              A. - They had wings. Shaped almost like a plane. No sound at all that I can recall. We have planes going over all the time and they make sound. The both appears orange in colour. That may have been due to the haze.

                              Q. - Describe the area in which you made the sighting. Is it near an airport? An Air Force Base? A military or research installation of any kind.

                              A. - There is a small municipal airport. We are about 1 hour southwest of the Toronto Airport and an hour or so from the Hamilton airport. Not aware of any military installations.

                              Q. - Also did you happen to see any aircraft in the area at the time of the sighting ?

                              A. - There was a couple of airplanes. One flying east and one going south west. The two objects were much higher in the sky. The planes I could see clearly, including their lights.

                              Q. - Did you happen to notice if there was a trail or tail following behind them ?

                              A. - No tail or trail that I noticed.

                              Q. - Did any of the objects have lights on them ?

                              A. - No lights. They were just illuminated an orange colour.

                              Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                Jacksonville Florida One Big Bright Light

                                Date: 1947 or 1948

                                Message: In your report about 1940s you missed a big one, In the summer of 1947 or 1948 in Jacksonville Florida I was about 10 years old when my whole family saw one big bright light in the sky about 20 mile out at about 10,000 feet, and out of this real bright light three smaller bight lights came out and sat there for about a minute. Then they would shoot across the sky in different directions, I would say 20 miles from the starting point and they would come to a complete stop, and some times they would sit there for a little bit and shoot off into a different direction. All three of the smaller lights would move in this matter. The real bight light stayed in the same location, about a hour of this they returned to the big bright light and it just disappeared.

                                This happen about 3 or 4 days in a row, in the same location in the sky. Approx: half the city called in to report this action they saw in the sky and the newspaper put a story in the paper about these lights because so many people saw them across the city. Alot of people thought that is was going to be the end of the world.

                                The reason I can tell the different in altitude and distance is because I am a pilot, with lots of hours of flight time in my own aircraft, this was one time in my life that scared me and my whole family.

                                If I knew how to get the record from the newspaper, I sure I could download it for you because after three days they didn't say another word about it. The military said they had no aircraft in the air at that time. These lights were traveling at over approx: 10,000 mile a hour or more and they didn't make a sound. At the time they were training pilots in PBYs at a Navy Base and you could hear them 30 miles away, that's how much noise they made. So it was not any air plane, the jet aircraft was not in production at that time and they could not fly at that speed even if there were. This is the only UFO experience that I have had in my life time.. and I can assure you that they are out there.

                                Thank you to the witness for the interesting report.

                                Annapolis, Maryland Triangular Stationary Lights

                                Date: Summer of 1971
                                Time: 8:30 p.m.

                                Number of witnesses: 2
                                Number of objects: 1
                                Shape of objects: Triangular

                                Full Description of event/sighting: My friend and I were walking down the street of our neighborhood. We both saw these lights up in the sky which were just stationary in the shape of a triangle. Three lights. We kept walking....not paying much attention to it, but as we started talking about what it was we saw, there seemed to be a discrepancy in what she saw and I
                                saw. So we turned around to check it out again. We had to walk back to almost the exact spot where we were, to really see it, and as we stood there looking up at it, it began to spin. It just hovered, which really freaked us out because there was absolutely No sound coming from it. And as we stood there it just started moving off at a pretty rapid rate of speed.

                                Never a sound was made from it. It seemed so close when we first saw it, but I don't ever remember seeing anything but the 3 lights in the triangular shape. I always knew it was not of our world, but of course nobody else would believe that. I don't know what kind of craft, even today, is able to just hover without any engine noise. Do you? I was only 14 years old at the
                                time, but I'll never forget it.

                                Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                Full Description of event/sighting: round sphere bright luminous orange with vein like marks throughout about the size of a house traveling in a straight line across the sky i was only a short distance away waiting for a bus . I watched the object for about 20 seconds it wasn't moving very fast but then it began to ascend at an angle of about 60 degrees and continued to ascend till it disappeared from view. I didn't report the event because there was only myself as a witness but from that time I have been a firm believer in these objects. The object I saw was impossible for it to have been made by humans at the present time I could tell this from the way it was glowing and by its shape and size and the way it ascended into the sky. This is a true account.

                                Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                Rural Roy, Washington, (Puget Sound area sighting)

                                Date: 1998 (maybe 1997)
                                Time: Between 9:00 and 11:00 p.m.

                                Number of witnesses: 2
                                Number of objects: 1
                                Shape of objects: Triangle, very large.

                                Full Description of event/sighting: In the year 1998 (maybe 1997) I lived in a rural farming area (5 miles east of the city of Roy) about 20 miles south of Tacoma, Washington. Our ranch was directly under the McChord AFB flight line landing zone and a few miles south of the Ft. Lewis training area. Very common was all sorts of aircraft flying over the house between 500 and 1500 feet. This particular evening was cool and clear. I was in the house with my kids when my now ex-wife was outside feeding the horses when she began pounding the living room window so hard I thought she would break it. She yelled at me to come out side. When I did, I observed overhead and slightly to the north and northbound an almost silent craft. As I recall now, I remember hearing a hum.

                                What I distinctly recall is the back side had at least two lighted cylindrical ports. They appeared to be exhaust ports. Both were glowing yellowish and "dripping" some sort of burning flame, not unlike plastic drips as it burns. The drips fell from the craft only a few feet and extinguished. What my ex told me was that the craft was a very large triangle, several football fields large, much larger then the common large McChord aircraft. The craft had numerous windows on it that emitted light as if interior lights were on. The craft came from the west, just above treetop level, floated to directly above our house and then made a right angle LEFT turn, over our house and then proceeded north. The craft was moving slower then the slowest aircraft we have ever seen and we had seen probably thousands over the past approximate 10 years that we lived there. This craft was NOTHING like we have ever seen or heard and moved like NOTHING we have ever seen or heard. We were not the only ones to see it but we were the only ones who reported being within 500 feet of it. The craft proceeded north over Tacoma where many of our friends reported seeing it from several miles away. It continued north thru the Puget Sound area to north of Seattle.

                                The local news showed the footage of the crafts lights obtained from the Space Needle. Official response was that it was falling space debris. The military had no reasonable response although many reported the military helicopters firing up and taking chase. As I recall we heard the copters firing up from our house, others saw them flying after it. Later reports came out saying that it had been earlier seen in Oregon and as I recall California and then as far north as Canada. I did report it to one of the internet UFO reporting sites. At the time I was a Tacoma police officer, my ex wife ran our horse breeding ranch. Its suspicious that it purposely flew in the flight line for McChord AFB which makes me think its some top secret government project. But then why would it fly over heavily populated areas and allow itself to be recorded by the Space Cam on top of the Space Needle?

                                Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                Edmonton, Alberta "Classic" Flying Saucer

                                Date: Approx: March 2004
                                Time: 4:00 p.m.

                                I just found your email address on unknowncountry.com saying to submit UFO reports to you. I didn't really know who exactly to report this to, so you're my best bet so far. As I was driving in south Edmonton earlier this year (probably around March), I saw an absolutely huge UFO in the sky during broad daylight hours. It was obviously some type of metallic structure, and matched most other UFO descriptions. It was probably about 500 feet in the air and 300 feet in front of me, moving very slowly and changing it's direction a lot as if it were lost or scanning the ground looking for something. I tried to follow it but it disappeared into thin air after about 10 or 15 seconds after I spotted it. This is the first time I've ever seen
                                something like this, I'm not crazy, I know what I saw.

                                Additional Information:

                                Okay, it was a while ago, and I never wrote it down, but I'll give you all of the info I am sure about.

                                Date : Approx March 2004

                                Weather : Sunny day with scattered clouds (at about 4:00 p.m. because I was driving a friend home)

                                Sky Location : I was driving East and it was probably about 60 or 70 degrees upwards, just enough that I had to make an effort to bend my neck to see it.

                                Description: It looked like the "classic" flying saucer (two plates pressed together), it was silver/grey, obviously metallic, probably about 100-150 feet in diameter (I'm not too sure), & no sound.

                                Airports: There is the Edmonton International Airport probably about 45 km away from where I was, but this was not a plane. No nearby military bases.

                                Extra (about lost/scanning): Like I said, it was moving back and forth across the sky, stopping, and moving up and down, all very slowly. I was actually very surprised to see it being absent on the 6:00 news. I don't know why, but as I watched it, it reminded me of a person looking for a contact lens on the ground (slowly looking around and scanning areas one at a time). I'm sorry I can't elaborate on that more, but that's the closest thing I could compare the way in which it was acting.

                                I hope any of this can be useful to you. Thank you for taking these reports by the way, I'm glad someone takes me seriously.

                                Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                Peterborough, Ontario Triangular Craft

                                Date: July 5, 2004
                                Time: 4:00 a.m.

                                In the early morning of July 5 2004 at approximately 4:00 a.m at Peterborough Ontario Canada my cousin and myself observed a fast moving object overhead and then it disappear over an area called Little lake. A few moments later we observed a triangle of three lights (bright). We thought it was just the stars at first but then the lights we thought were stars began to move, it then disappeared back towards Little Lake (easterly direction) Now fast forward 2 days at approximately 3.30 a.m. on Lafayette Ave in Peterborough.

                                Earlier in the evening I had observed a bright streak in the sky toward the east so I was watching the eastern sky close.
                                All of a sudden I observed 2 small bright fast moving objects moving to the east. Very fast I might add so here I'm watching towards the east not paying attention directly overhead. All of a sudden everything just seemed to get real quiet. Eerie quiet.

                                I'm looking east then I just get these creepy feeling that something was watching me, you know what I mean. I turned and looked down the street towards the General Electric plant (900 feet approximately ) I swear I couldn't hear the background noises you usually hear traffic dogs etc.

                                So now I notice the glow from the street light seemed to be changing color on the cars on the street. Then I look up. My god there it is coming right over the house. This thing is massive !

                                I swear I could have hit it with a sling shot. So its kind of slowly idling east, at like I don't know 5 kmish maybe. The craft stops, then starts going sideways now towards the GE plant, it seemed as wide as the distance between GE and our house. Now I don't know much about this stuff but I swear this is one evil looking outfit with 3 lights (brownish orange very dim ) One at each point of the triangle not that it is pointed but at the ends. The ends are rounded off, I will send a little drawing I made. It seems to be a blue black color but flat no shine, almost a rough finish, a circular dome dead center of the bottom in a hexagon type enclosure. No light or glowing color on this dome. This is set in an indented area that almost had the look of the surface of a pool. I could now see the one side that appeared to have some kind of indentations
                                probably doors or some kind of hatch. It sat there for probably 3 minutes, but seemed like a lifetime.

                                Then it just moved so fast you couldn't even tell the direction it went. Anyway I have seen it twice since then but it was a
                                lot higher up. Probably 1500 feet.

                                Maybe its just me or maybe something else but I know they know I saw them. I don't think these guys are real friendly. I could just feel it. Anyway couple observations. Next day my neighbors Dodge Intrepids battery was completely zapped. He had to replace the alternator and battery the next day. His Olds wouldn't start either, the alternator and battery fried. His Name is (removed) and I'm sure he would verify that. My Camry's two month old Kenwood stereo fried. Rear light wiring fried. Battery was completely dead by 2:00 o'clock in the afternoon, so I recharged it and it came back to life. Still had problems with the wiring so I had it repaired at Russell Toyota in Peterborough 489 dollars...

                                One other thing I would like to add, there was the weak aroma of like a burnt transformer in the air for a few minutes after the craft left. I might add as well I went into the back yard and alley behind the house to get a good view of this thing because I couldn't see all three lights from the street because of its size.

                                Sighting Dates and times
                                July 5, 2004...4:00 a.m
                                July 7, 2004 - Close sighting as per sketches 3:30 a.m
                                July 17, 2004 - 1500 feet approximately details hard to see just shape and 3 light. Moved east then drifted towards G.E
                                August 26, 2004 - Triangle lights looked like brighter than usual stars moving east.

                                Additional Information:

                                Well the first object was moving very fast but slowing to some extent.

                                It was moving from the west towards the east and dropping till we lost site of it behind the buildings. It was an orangish object. Very bright !!

                                We would have been looking in a North to Northeast direction. I get mixed up with the directions. The altitude I would say when first in view was probably 5000 feet descending to 1000 feet, It came on what seemed to be an exact path of the triangle lights. The first triangular lights seemed to be a bit bigger and clearer but I had no idea until I saw the one over the house how big it was.

                                What I found out today is that General Electric here supposedly stopped making reactor parts years ago. But I found a site while searching that sheds some light on this http://www.cnwc-cctn.ca/gefuel.html I asked people what they do there at the plant and nobody seems to know. I have only lived here a while so I thought they might have been making fridges or something. At the gate to GE on Monaghan drive it seems really secure. This is a huge plant

                                I can see the plant right from my (removed) but that street it is on called Albert and is a half mile long and the plant runs the distance of the street. I guess there are only 700 workers in the plant now but it did employ upwards of 7000 at one time.

                                They make fuel pellets for the Candu Reactors but you can't find it on one single GE site anywhere..

                                About the time: It seemed like it was 3 minutes but when I came back in the house it was 5:17 by my computer. So one and a half hours passed roughly.

                                This thing was directly overhead but it sort of stopped then drifted towards the plant. What I mean by directly overhead (the front) I assume it was the front seemed directly over and inline with the driveway.

                                I had to go into the backyard, into the alley to see it all and that's when I got the feeling they knew I was there. Then I went running back out to the street and saw a girl running like heck towards the other street (Chamberlaine) It rotated slightly to its left as it drifted over the plant. I still get Goosebumps just thinking about it. The front moved till it was almost out past Jackson Ave. I'll see if I can do a picture over a map if I can find one.

                                Unusual sensations: Well other than being freaked out I seemed to have my hearing kind of muffled. Like I had a head cold sort of effect. A couple times I had the momentary feeling like I was lost or didn't know where I was

                                Weather: Its always been overcast, partly cloudy. But the sky seems to clear up just at the right time.

                                See what really scared the ba jezus out of me was that I was watching to the east looking for those lights to reappear and the thing kind of creeped up behind me. So I was really startled when I looked up so it was just moving dead slow at this point from the west.

                                Street lights: The reflections on the cars changed from the usual glow, to a more I guess orangish glow. I saw the shadows on the street change a bit so I knew there was something above me and I looked up and just thought, Oh my god, what the heck is that. I don't think anyone would have heard me scream if I did scream any way. Its like noise was being suppressed somehow. Like some kind of silence field around the thing and maybe I was in that field? Not sure.

                                Would be 3 cars I know of that had electrical screw ups the next day. I don't talk to a lot of people around here and the flood happened the next day, so 24 hours after the sighting everything was so crazy.

                                I sure had some weird dreams and stuff since this happened. I seem to really notice the shape in architecture and stuff. My wife says its like I've had some little psychic twinge switched on. Like I'll know the phone is going to ring before it does things like that.

                                Anyway here are some maps so you can get a feel for the layout of the area .The area in Grey is the GE Plant I tried to show where the Triangle stopped then moved sideways until it was over G.E. 2 of the maps are just for reference kind of.

                                Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                Williamson, New York Disk Shaped Craft

                                Date: August 17, 2004
                                Time: Approx: 9:00 p.m.

                                Number of witnesses: 1
                                Number of objects: 1
                                Shape of objects: Disk shaped.

                                Full Description of event/sighting: My son just ran inside to tell me he saw a disk shaped object with a green light on top and some kind of blue illumination under. The sky was dark but not black yet. I asked him how he could see both top and bottom. He says it was stationary in the sky, in a tilted position. It was thin. He compared it to a CD. It seemed metallic.
                                Then it flew at great speed (he called it superextraterrestrial speed) towards east. There's a ridge over there so he lost it behind the trees.

                                I asked him to extend his arm and tell me if it was bigger than his thumb and he said it was as big as his 2 thumbs together.

                                Additional Information:

                                Hi Brian!

                                My son just saw a UFO! I had him draw it because I thought he could have seen a meteor or something. Saucer shaped, green light on top, blue light on bottom. I'll go fill a report on the site. He said the bluish light under made it look rusty colour.

                                I missed it because hubby wouldn't come with me outside to look at the stars!

                                I'll try to see if someone else saw it around here. Pilots approaching. Rochester airport must have seen it!

                                1. - Clear sky, no clouds, no haze, no rain. Crescent moon. It wasn't quite night yet. Dark sky but not totally night. I went outside right after he came in, to get a visual description of the trajectory and the sky was clear.

                                2. - South of our house. It means south of Lake Ontario. Our house is about 4 to 5 miles south of the lake. We are roughly 35 miles east of Rochester.

                                3. - It shot straight towards East. No wobbling, no zig-zag, straight path. It was stationary in the sky, tilted, then sort of leveled up and traveled towards east at great speed. He didn't see any spinning or other movement.

                                4. - There was no sound at all.

                                5. - It looked rusty red, reddish brown to him. Green light on top always on, not blinking. He says it's hard to describe. It didn't look like a green light you'd find on an airplane, like an electric light. It looked like a green marble of light, glowing. That's the best description he can give me. At first was tilted in a way that he saw the green dot of light on top and the blue illumination coming from under was seen as a corona of blue light around and it seemed to be all over under the craft when he saw it speed away.

                                6. - No physical sensation or other.

                                7. - We have a tree that's about 20-22 feet high and the craft seemed to be between 3 and 5 inches over it from his point of view, you know when you measure with your thumb and index finger. He was working on his bicycle and I measured he was roughly 85 feet from the tree. We have a big yard, 2 1/2 acres of land. But the craft was further down south, as he saw it. As wide as his two thumbs put together when extending his arms up. His thumbs are almost as big as an adult but a bit slender. He's short, 5'3". I wish I had gone out in the yard like I wanted to!!!! It was a hammock night!

                                8. - From the moment he noticed it, it stayed stationary for about 4 to 5 seconds. The whole sighting may have lasted 7 seconds. The ridge is only a few miles away and he lost sight of it when it flew past the ridge. And the ridge is not that high.

                                9. - Hard to tell. We can see airplanes approaching Rochester airport every night in this part of the sky. I asked him if it was longer than the airplanes we see in the sky doing their approach. He says about twice the length. He says it looked to be about same height as the airplanes we see approaching Rochester. There is also a very small airport in Williamson and it's near the ridge. I doubt it's manned at all times though. It's for people with small planes, people who fly for the fun of it.

                                Thank you to the witness for the great report.

                                Vernon, B.C. Strange Effect


                                Date: August 19 2004
                                Time: After midnight

                                Hi Brian


                                I have been reporting the globes that have been around Vernon since April. I became familiar with their behavior, and where they would be. There was usually four. Then there was only one after a three week lapse. I am out every night at the time I have seen their activity, but only the one has appeared once a week since July. Two weeks ago the one stopped over the airport in the clouds and flared three short times. This was different as I have seen them pulse and flare but not short sharp blasts of light. The globe is all light and my binoculars can't make out anything that could be called a vehicle. When it flares it
                                only increases in size equal to the light it emits. It does not morph into anything or display many lights. It is something covered in light and remains the size of a seed pearl.


                                Thursday night something really different happened. The sky over the airport had low clouds and heat haze from the ground. I looked to the spot where I have seen them appear over the airport. The globe flared and then really flared to blinding white. The different part is this. If I hadn't been sitting down I would have had to sit down. As it was I was set back in my chair.
                                I felt this light press through me. I did not lose time, or lapse in consciousness or feel fear.

                                A friend in Salmon Arm witnessed the same thing only she said she nearly fell over and the horses in the field all jumped. She was out at midnight looking for her cat. She said no noise, no explosion just pure white light that went to the back of her head. This is the first time I have felt a light force. A light force. Sounds kind of cool and it was.

                                Take care.

                                Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                Terrace, B.C. Lights Traveling Across The Sky

                                Date: August 19, 2004
                                Time: Approx: 12:20 a.m.

                                Short sighting, I witnessed 5 lights, and each light separated into 3 more lights, each all in a horizontal fashion. There are 2 witnesses on the 19th of August 2004. The shortest UFO sighting I have ever seen. They were too far away to see any detail. The lights were traveling due west, I was standing on the Southside of Terrace when they flew almost overhead.

                                Additional Information:

                                The lights were seen at about 12:20........may be within 10 minutes of that either way. The sighting only lasted a few seconds on account of them moving so fast. There color was almost a florescent white, with a blue tinge to it. They were big enough to see that they weren't stars, but an aircraft can't maneuver side to side like that. The number is actually unknown...it started with 5 , but then they split off into many other lights flying all parallel to one other. As for the weather, it was a perfectly
                                clear night.

                                Thank you to the witness for this report.

                                Date: August 29, 2004
                                Time: Approx: 2:30 a.m.

                                A phone call came in from a witness who was traveling on Highway 16 (Yellowhead Highway). On August 29, 2004 at approx: 2:25 a.m. the fellow had pulled his vehicle off to the side of the road to stretch his legs as he had been on the road for sometime, he had been heading westbound. That part of the highway had four lanes and he had pulled over into a pull off area.

                                As he walked around and eventfully was getting back into the car to start his journey again, he noticed traveling from west to east a large, round/circular glowing orange object, which he first thought was a beautiful Autumn Moon. (this was the first thing that came to mind). He described it as being roughly one and a half time the size of a full moon. The sighting lasted for approx: 5 seconds and was seen low on the horizon. He also stated that is was heavily clouded over at that time and it had rained earlier. So the object was traveling below the cloud cover. There was no trail or tail following behind the object, also no sound was heard at all.

                                A Freightliner which was coming down the highway in his direction seemed to be slowing at a good rate and the witness figured that the driver had to have been observing the same object as he was because as soon as the object disappeared from sight the truck sped up again.

                                Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                Time: 8:00 p.m.

                                Number of witnesses: 5

                                Shape of objects: Cloud

                                Full Description of event/sighting: I, and others, saw a dark cloud like form move from south to north at a height of +- 700 feet over the ocean between two points of land. My comment to others to attract their attention was" look at the moving cloud!" It was the size of 1/2 a cruise ship and moved rapidly across the horizon. It did not reappear from the island that it disappeared behind. The distance away could not be determined but is estimated to be around 6 miles as the points of land were +- 3 miles.

                                Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                  Trenton Ontario And Dartmouth Nova Scotia UFO Encounters

                                  Two Canadian reports below:

                                  Hello, I live in southern Ontario and had an unusual sighting about 4 years ago, and another one just a few nights ago that was very similar. In the first sighting, I was letting my dog out and while she was busy, I was just looking up at the stars. I noticed one star that seemed much brighter than the others, so I was looking at it. All of a sudden, it started moving very fast downward directly at me. It still just looked like a big star, but kept getting bigger and bigger. I became frightened, and then just as quickly, it appeared to stop, then go back in the direction it came in. I watched it until it became so tiny that it disappeared in the night sky.

                                  Then, as I said, a very similar thing happened a few nights ago. But this time I caught it out of the corner of my eye, and it seemed that as soon as I noticed it getting bigger, it stopped and reversed direction till I could no longer see it. I was wondering if anyone else has reported this.

                                  Additional Information:

                                  Okay, I will try to give as much detail as I can. I think the first time was either late summer or fall. I remember that there was no snow, and I don't think I had a coat on. The year was approximately 1999 or 2000. It was probably around 9 or 10 pm. It was in the eastern part of the sky. Not directly overhead, but high up. It just looked like a big star. There was no discernable shape other than round. It was near the Air Force Base in Trenton Ontario. I do remember that when it started going away, there was a plane off to the right. But there are always planes in the sky around this area.

                                  With the second sighting, I have moved about 10 minutes north from where I used to live. It looked just the same , and it was in the eastern sky as well. It was to the left of me at about 10 o'clock in the sky. And it was probably around 9 or 10 pm. It was dark out and it was August. 2004.

                                  As for your other question, I did have something happen to me when I was 15. It's kind of a long story, and I tend to be a bit wordy at times (see I'm doing it now), But for what it's worth here goes.

                                  I was living in Dartmouth Nova Scotia with my mother and my 3 sisters. I was 15, and my sisters were 13, 9 and 5. I lived in a trailer park and I had been babysitting. I remember that the people came home very early and I was surprised at that, so I was walking home. There was a big turning circle in front of our trailer, and I was cutting through the neighbor's yard and was going to walk across the circle to my place. As I was cutting through the yard, I looked up towards our trailer, and
                                  there was a "UFO" directly above and over to the right a bit . I knew it was not a plane as it made no sound, and living near Shearwater, we knew about planes. If I had not looked up, I would not have known it was there.


                                  There were a band of lights around the middle of it, and they were going around and around. I had to go directly under it to get home. I was so scared. So I ran under it and in the house. I ran inside screaming and hollering that there was a UFO outside. I cannot tell you what time it was except when I was cutting across the neighbor's yard, it was dark outside.

                                  Now here is the weird part. And it didn't strike me as strange till many years later. When I came into the kitchen, my Mom and her boyfriend were sitting at the table. My two sisters were in the living room watching TV, and my youngest sister must have been in the bedroom. I came tearing into the kitchen yelling and probably hysterical. You would think everyone would come running if only to find out what was going on. But no, my two sisters just looked over at me for a second and then went back to watching TV.

                                  My mom and her boyfriend seemed not the least bit perturbed about anything. No one would come look at this thing. It was like they were in slow motion. I kept peeking my head out the door to see if it was still there. I'm not sure at what point, but it finally started going straight up, and then just went away. I watched it till I couldn't see it anymore. No one came to look
                                  at it. My Mom's boyfriend was in the military, and after it left, he called the base to see if they had anything on radar. He said they said there was nothing. Now that I'm older, I realize he was not in any position to ask for or receive that kind of info from anyone on the base, so he could have been just lying. Then I went to bed, and that was it. I don't even think we ever talked about it . My sisters say they don't remember it. But I do.

                                  I'm 46 years old, and I still remember much of it like it was yesterday. So there it is. Just recounting it makes me all shaky inside. Haha. It kind of makes it officially real. If that makes any sense. I have had some strange things happen in my life, but I don't think I was ever abducted. Hope this helps your research in some way.

                                  Thank you to the witness for the reports.

                                  Goodmayes, Ilford, Essex. England UK Large Craft Over Hospital

                                  Date: 1982
                                  Time: In-between 4:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m.

                                  Number of witnesses: 2
                                  Number of objects: 1
                                  Shape of objects: Very very large.

                                  Full Description of event/sighting: My friend (removed) and I had finished work in the hospital and was on our way home, our shifts would finish between 4:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m, it was a dark night and the lighting in the car park was poor, when we got to the car park we stood talking for about 10 or 15 minutes.

                                  I don't recall if there was a sound or noise but for some reason I looked up at the night sky then looked back at my friend, then immediately looked again into the night sky, I said to my friend something along the lines of "what's that" and then asked him if he could see it, we stopped talking for a moment and both looked, then my friend replied "yes what is it" we both stood staring, trying to work out what it was, we both began to discuss what we were seeing & tried to rationalize it, we both agreed it was strange

                                  When we stopped looking at it, I turned around to see if anyone else had stopped to look, but nobody had, I saw a few people walking through the car park talking, but nobody noticed.

                                  I looked back at my friend and we carried on with our conversation, said goodnight and went home. The strange thing is we only spoke to each other about it once or twice afterwards, it was never mentioned again. Since that day, I have thought that maybe it was some kind of reflection, a collection of positive ions in the atmosphere or something ?

                                  What we saw was something like what you see in films today, it was an extremely large craft which took up a massive amount of sky, it was so large that it blended itself into the darkness of the night sky, there were lots of shapes on the craft which were suddenly light up by the moonlight. We were directly underneath the outer edge of it, I know this because with my head tilted right back I could see the stars, then as I rolled my eyes forward I could make out the shapes on the craft.

                                  I don't recall seeing any lights on the craft but I do recall it slowly but constantly moving overhead from my left to my right, as I looked to my right (the direction the craft was moving) the shapes were disappearing into the night sky but they were still coming over from the left, I'm afraid I can't recall seeing the back of the craft I just remember not seeing it anymore, it was just passing over and then the shapes blended into the darkness of the night sky.

                                  Was this a UFO ? Or can it be explained away scientifically ?

                                  This was not a dream it is defiantly a memory, has anyone else reported something like this ? could you please email me with your thoughts.

                                  Additional Information:

                                  The craft that my friend and I saw did not have a straight edge to it, (sharp edge) it wasn't smooth, the shapes went in and out, it was a craft but was almost like a flying city, some shapes were suttle, although it was probably very high in the sky I'm sure these suttle shapes were fairly large, some parts of the craft along its side went in and out.

                                  This is the exciting part for me, when I read that report you sent me there were two things that I didn't put in my report because I thought it may have sounded over the top.

                                  On the side of the craft near to the back end on a section that went in and was straight for a while, I saw a window that had a light in the background, or background light, it was as if a light was left on a lot further down a corridor, causing a soft light to imamate from it, there was nobody standing at the window, it was just the window.

                                  The second thing I was only 75% sure of was the sound that it made, I know this sound was not a sound that you would normally hear, its a sound that I had to focus my attention to in order to hear it. When I stood there with Gary looking up at it I could just about pick up the audible sound, it was a low frequency humming, a little like the sound that you hear when standing near a large electrical installation, but much smoother and quieter.

                                  Many thanks.

                                  Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                  Time: Daytime sighting.

                                  Just happened on your website and thought I'd report a possible sighting I made about 13 years ago, a Saturday afternoon in May 1991 I think. I was walking in an area of Alexandria, Virginia in broad daylight with few other passersby present when I happened to look up at the sky and was surprised to see an odd-looking hovering object at an undetermined altitude - guesstimate 10,000 feet?. Its shape was irregularly rectangular and apparently flat, nothing that corresponded to the usual repertory of UFO shapes. Color indefinite against the clear sky: perhaps gray. No sound was audible from it. I wondered if it could be a large piece of paper, lower than it appeared at first sight, but it seemed too rigid and it wasn't drifting or being wafted about as would paper. It was definitely neither a bird nor an aircraft: no wings, no flapping, no darting or wheeling. Instead, it seemed to move about purposefully and slowly in various directions for perhaps two minutes, and then it moved away in a straight line, maintaining the same altitude at a speed now suggestive of an aircraft, accelerating steadily, then apparently rising and soon disappearing in the distance. This is the first report I've made of this observation. Am not given to "seeing things" and this is the only time I've ever seen anything so inexplicable.

                                  Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                  Canora, Saskatchewan UFO Flies 25 Feet Over Vehicle

                                  Date: November 15 and 16th 1998
                                  Time: Approx: 6:30 p.m.

                                  Hi Brian,

                                  I was in the vicinity of Canora Saskatchewan (north of Yorkton) on November 15 and 16th 1998 for business with another person.

                                  The woman who was traveling with me also witnessed this object. We left Yorkton at about 1830 hours on the 16th to drive to Saskatoon for the night en-route back to Edmonton. While we were leaving Yorkton, I told my passenger that the sky was lovely and it would be a good sky in which to see a UFO. She told me to be careful what I wished for and we laughed.

                                  The sky was lovely, there was no moon that night, but if you have ever seen a Saskatchewan sky, you will understand the immensity of the universe we can see. There were a lot of meteors flashing and we were enjoying our drive. When we were about a half hour out of Saskatoon, my passenger said, "What is that.. is it a plane". I looked to the left out of the drivers window and about 10 degrees forward and saw an object coming at us. It looked like it might be a plane from the distance, but all I could see were the lighted windows. I told her that it couldn't be a plane and she asked why. I told her that we were not near an airport and it was coming down to land. Now in the space of time that we saw this object coming down we had moved forward to just about directly under it. When it came down into the farmers field, it was only about 25 or thirty feet over us. It came down on a very sharp angle. My first inclination was to hit my brakes but I knew there was a vehicle right behind us who would have run right into our rear, so I braked and slowed. They stayed behind us, so I know they saw what we saw, possibly better. I was focused on the windows which were part of a circular body. They were large ( like windows in office buildings) and had pinky red light around the perimeter of each window. The inside was lighted, but no beings were visible. I saw what looked like a uniform light yellowy beige background in the windows. The reason I noted the passenger ( or what would have been the passenger area in a normal plane) area was circular because you could see the windows slant both front and rear as opposed to appearing a straight line.

                                  The object was dark colored and I still cannot figure out to this day whether it was circular or tube shaped. When it came down there was no noise and it did not interfere with the vehicles. It did not land per se, it appeared to hover over the farmers field and followed it for about a half mile in. There was a red light at the back of the object. My passenger followed it with her eyes while I drove and it went about a half mile in and then hovered there for about ten minutes. She then said it went up into the sky and went over a cloud and disappeared.

                                  I ran into this woman two years ago at a conference at UBC and she told me that she has only ever told her daughter what we saw that night. It happened so quickly and I could not stop to really observe, so I was trying to stay safe on a road that was icy while this was going on.. I don't know what we saw. The people behind us drove up beside us, slowed down and we looked at each other and then they beat it down the road very fast. I did not feel any fear, so I did not feel the need to leave the area quickly. I do know that this object was large and I do not know if there was a wing span over my van.. as I said I was too focused on the windows. But I do know that when it went into the field it looked as if it was the back of a triangle with the red light in the middle.

                                  Thanks

                                  Thank you to the witness for the excellent report.

                                  Edmonton, Alberta Two Bright Coronas

                                  Date: June 1999
                                  Time: Daytime Sighting

                                  A year later in June 1999, I was coming back into Edmonton from the north out past the army base. I stopped to watch a jet because I wanted to see if it was laying chemtrails or contrails. All of a sudden the jet appeared to be gone and beside it were two bright coronas that looked jagged parallel to each other right across from where I had last seen the jet. I actually got out of my car to look at this. A man came by and craned his neck to see what I was looking at so he must have seen them, too. I also think they must have been visible from the base because it was only a couple of miles up the road. I watched them for about five minutes. They were about the size of two quarters held at arms length. They were still there when I left. I was working and could not linger. They were about the same height as the jet had been which appeared as a black speck moving across the sky.

                                  Thanks

                                  Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                  Bathurst and Eglinton, Toronto (close to) Golden/Orange Ball

                                  Date: June 26, 2004
                                  Time: 10:52 p.m.

                                  Hi Brian

                                  I am glad to have found your article. I saw the golden/orange ball traveling from west to east at 10:52 p.m. from my balcony and quickly got my video camera. Unfortunately I only caught a split second of it and it appears as a white light traveling quickly across the dark sky.


                                  The ball moved at what seemed to be a rather slow steady pace and it was followed by a long tail.

                                  Then I thought I was seeing double because at a further distance moving parallel and at the same exact speed was another one. Although I told many people no one else seems to have noticed it.

                                  Thank you

                                  Additional Information:

                                  I am located close to Bathurst and Eglinton in Toronto. My balcony faces south. As I recall it was a very clear night.
                                  The bright light ball with the tail was coming from the west. It seemed miraculous. The ball seemed a very bright golden light and the tail seem more like the color of a star. There was no sound I am on the fourth floor and the ball was at about a 20 degree angle.


                                  To the distance in the horizon another object it seemed like a mirror image of the object because it didn't seem as bright but it was traveling at exactly the same speed and parallel to the ground. Because of buildings and trees I cannot see too far to the right or left. It didn't seem to be traveling very fast but it was in a straight line, constant speed and parallel to the ground.

                                  It gave me time to run into the apartment and nervously get my video camera. Unfortunately my camera was in a digital zoom mode and I had trouble locating the object on my lens. I have a very fast flash of light on my recorder that disappears behind a building. I think you can maybe see a bit of the second one as well.

                                  Just to let you know I am a fairly reasonable, responsible person with my own business. I am not trying to overwhelm you or scare you off but about 17 years ago I saw three UFO's very clearly from downtown Toronto. They were very real. They flew three abreast with absolutely no sound. They were moving incredibly fast. They were grey on the top half and a light metallic blue on the bottom half. The image remains with me to this day.

                                  Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                  Houston, B.C. Bright Light Penetrates Top Of Tree

                                  Date: August 12, 2004
                                  Time: Approx: 2:45 a.m.

                                  I talked with a well known gentleman in the local shopping mall here in Houston, British Columbia. He had some story he wanted to relate to me. He said he was having a hard time sleeping on August 12, 2004, so he got up out of bed at around 2:45 a.m. and wandered out to the kitchen for a drink of water. As he walked down the short hallway he easily saw the kitchen area and other parts of the home were lit up in a bright while light. Wondering what was causing this he went over to the window and observed an extremely bright white light which was sitting stationary at the back end of his property. The light was barely above the tree tops, with the bottom end of it tucked in behind a clump of trees. What he told me surprised me as the man said the light rounded out the top of a large tree. Meaning that the light seemed to penetrate or remove this portion of the tree. (After the light had disappeared the tree remained intact)

                                  Been totally surprised at this sight, he called one of his sons who lives on the next five acre parcel next to his and woke him up so he could also see what his father was looking at. Both from their separate homes watched the large light hovering in place. The older man went and grabbed his camera and was able to capture a shot of this light/object. (I will be adding the picture very soon).

                                  He said there was not a sound coming from the direction the light was in, actually he said the early morning was very silent. Eventually after a short period of time the light just disappeared, or blinked out.

                                  HBCC UFO Note: Now I know the area well behind the fellows home as at one time I peeled railroad ties for him. I can tell you there is nothing back there but forest. There is one gravel road which leads to the old Equity Silver mine but that is a little ways away. The witness said the light was right there just behind the trees.

                                  Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                  Santa Cruz Mountains, California (Bay Area) Object Stayed Motionless

                                  Date: August 28, 2004
                                  Time: 10:30 - 11:00 p.m.

                                  Just a quick note on something I saw over the Santa Cruz mountains...

                                  I was sitting in out outside hot-tub at night, we live on (removed) so there are no streetlights and you always have a beautiful and clear view of the sky and the stars.

                                  We were sitting there, looking up, and saw a light moving right to left across the sky (sorry, have no clue about if it was north, south, etc.) - I thought it could be a very high plane, possibly a satellite or something... but as we watched it, it suddenly stopped dead in its tracks, stayed motionless for a few moments (2 minutes at the most) and then went very fast about a 45 degree turn from its original trajectory... and it seemed that it went up at that angle, too.... and we could no longer see it - it was gone.

                                  It was too far off to make out details, but its movement and suddenly stopping, and then suddenly zooming away at what must have been incredible speed made me think it might be something else... and with the reported rash of UFO sightings over the Bay Area lately, I wondered if I might have actually seen one.

                                  Very curious, do you think this could be anything else? I was so excited about the though that I might have actually finally seen a UFO, but want to know if there is a more rational explanation first. I would love your input.

                                  Thank you for your time.

                                  Additional Information:

                                  Q. - What color was the light itself ?

                                  A. - It was white, no details, which is why I thought it was originally a plane flying very high or a satellite (you know what it looks like when you see a satellite passing overhead... just a plain white light, too far up to get details...

                                  Q. - Can you please describe the appearance of the UFO: shape, size, distance, color, texture, sound.

                                  A. - It was miles up, so like I said, I cannot even guess at size, no details other than its movement - just a moving light...

                                  Q. - Describe the area in which you made the sighting. Is it near an airport? An Air Force Base? A military or research installation of any kind?

                                  A. - No, this was in the Santa Cruz mountains in California (Bay Area). There is only one airport in the immediate vicinity, but still about a half hour driving distance... (San Jose International Airport) - Closest Military installation would be Moffett Field, in Mountain View, about an hour or less from where I was... these are large residents in the mountains above Santa Cruz, CA. and it is more wilderness than anything... no open field, just lots and lots of windy roads, chasms and trees... At night, it is very dark other than lights from the houses, but from any house, you can't see more than 1 or two in the distance... each property is anywhere from half an acre to 10 acres... very beautiful up there... if you look on a map, find highway 17 that goes from the central bay area (San Jose/Santa Clara) and follow it to the hills above Santa Cruz... a long road from the freeway is (removed). This would take you all the way up to Boulder Creek, CA. You can see from any internet sites about the area what the area is like if you wanted to know...

                                  Q. - Also did you happen to see any aircraft in the area, just before, during or after the sighting ?

                                  A. - No, I did not... it is rare to see planes in that area.... but it is possible, I just don't know for sure... I don't generally remember things like planes, unless it did something unusual...

                                  Q. - When you first saw it, was it moving quickly or slow, this is before it came to a complete stop ?

                                  A. - Seemed rather quick and steady in-line movement... but just stopped. Once it began moving again, it moved what seemed like twice as fast as it was before... the movement (before it stopped) was much like a fast moving plane... no noise, and if it was a plane, too far away to hear anything... it was moving fast enough to catch my attention... and after, it moved much quicker..

                                  Q. - One more thing, did you happen to notice if you saw a trail or tail following behind it ?

                                  A. - No, like I mentioned, very high up, and other than just a slight blur of light, no actual trail that I could tell.

                                  Thank you to the witness for the great report.

                                  Time: Approx: 5:45 p.m.

                                  A sighting to report to you on Sept.1,2004 over West Hill , Ontario.At approx.5:45 p.m. in southeastern direction caught with the naked eye in eastern Scarborough facing east over West Hill / Pickering townships observed a Rusty-red colored circle of light attached with white cigar like features very high in the rich blue sky.Observed with binoculars detailed object was in fact like a white rocket with a bright rusty red light behind it.Had to be at least 20-30,000 feet high or more.Again , like the last two reports it appeared to be hanging up there and moving very, very slowly.Observed craft for approx.5 minutes.Lifted binoculars down because of hearing low flying white jet to look at for 10-15 seconds then viewed back to the UFO and it was gone.

                                  Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                    New York Thruway Northbound Football Field Sized Boomerang (UFO)

                                    Date: 1975
                                    Time: Approx: 8:30 p.m.

                                    Number of witnesses: 20+
                                    Number of objects: 1
                                    Shape of objects: Boomerang.

                                    Full Description of event/sighting: I was a truck driver on a trip from NYC to Albany. The fastest way was to take the thruway upstate. As I was driving I noticed that I really couldn't get much on the CB and the AM radio was more static than anything else.

                                    Sometime around 8:30 or so I started to notice that there were occasional cars pulled off to the side of the road and even some in the median.

                                    As I pulled under an overpass I saw this thing floating over the road about 100 feet above the roadbed. I slammed on the brakes and almost jackknifed right there!

                                    It was approximately the size of a high school football field, but not quite as wide. It had lights on each end and in the middle with blue square lights all across the back end of the wings.

                                    I managed to get out of the cab of the truck and was standing in front of my truck looking up at it when a NY State Trooper pulled up and got out of his cruiser. He and I stood there for maybe two or three minutes just looking up. We noticed that there was absolutely no sound at all and that it didn't fluctuate or "flutter" and that it just floated in the air. We saw structure, that is we saw the body of the vehicle. No rivets or seams, just the silver/grey color of the body. The trooper called out to me and asked if I was seeing the same thing he was and I assured him that I was indeed seeing the same thing.

                                    Then suddenly it moved over the Hudson River, made a slight turn kind of facing up, and then the next second - literally one second - it was gone.

                                    That's it. Total time was about 5 minutes, no more.

                                    The CB radio came back and so did the AM radio. From there all the way up to Albany I tried to make people believe that I saw what I saw. No one believed me then and I don't think anyone believes me now. Still, I saw it. I'll never forget it. From time to time I have a dream that I'm seeing it again. But only in a dream.

                                    Additional Information:

                                    Q. - Can you please describe the weather conditions at the time of the sighting. Was it Overcast? Raining? A clear night? Full moon?

                                    A. - "From what I can remember, it was fairly clear. I don't remember the moon at all, but I think that it was in the sky."

                                    Q. - In what part of the sky was the UFO located? North, South, East, West? On the horizon or straight overhead or somewhere in between?

                                    A. - "I was headed north and it was just above me. The trooper and I stood right underneath the thing."

                                    Q. - Can you please describe the area in which you made the sighting. Is it near an airport? An Air Force Base? A military or research installation of any kind?

                                    A. - "There weren't any airports around. I don't think I saw any air traffic at all before I saw it."

                                    Q. - The lights that were located on the ends, could you tell me what color these
                                    were please ?

                                    A. - "The lights on the ends were blueish/white and were steady in brightness. They were kind of like the new halogen lights on some of the newer cars."

                                    Q. - Also what color was the light that was in the middle of the craft ?

                                    A. - "Almost the same color as the ones on the end, but brighter."

                                    Q. - Seeing the craft so was so low to the ground, did you feel anything unusual from it. Dizziness or a feeling of being light headed ? Or anything else that you found out of the norm ?

                                    A. - "This going to sound a little weird, but we (the trooper and I) both felt light on our feet."

                                    At the time of the sighting, or just afterwards, did you happen to notice any aircraft showing up in the skies ? if so did they follow the same flight path that the object took ?

                                    A. - "I only saw one airplane about 5 or 10 minutes later. It was a small, single-engine Cessna or Piper. I don't think it sat more than 4 people, it was that small."

                                    Q. - Was there any other kind of light source coming from the craft ?

                                    A. - "No, I didn't see any portholes or windows on it."


                                    Thank you very much to the witness for the report.

                                    Moscow, Russia Three Triangles Hovering Over Lake

                                    This UFO sighting happened about a few years ago. My mother and uncle went fishing somewhere over 50 miles from Moscow, Russia. I was born there, and now we live in California. It happened by midnight, on the 2nd day they were staying by a huge lake. My uncle went in the tent to get something, and my mom decided to take a walk along the lake, which was about 20 feet away from the tent, when she saw some strange triangles hovering in the air above the lake. They emitted these strange bright lights, and moved in various directions above the lake. There was more than 3 triangles. My mom stood there for a few minutes, stunned, then ran back to the tent and called my uncle. By the time they got to the spot my mom was standing at, the UFOs were gone.

                                    Another UFO sighting happened in 2003, when my grandparents went to France due to a business deal. They drove in their car all the way there. On the way back, once they entered the freeway, my grandmother noticed a huge strange object, similar to the ones my mom saw at the lake. It was 10 times larger than a Boeing 777 aircraft! It hovered in midair for about 7 minutes, emitting different lights like red and green. It disappeared as it had appeared.

                                    Thank you very much to the witness for relating the sighting reports.

                                    Swan Lake, B.C. Ball Of Orange Light

                                    Date: 2003
                                    Time: 11:00 p.m.

                                    About a year before, I observed a ball of orange light travelling under rain clouds, maybe only two hundred feet at a very rapid rate, south down the valley over Swan Lake, just North of Vernon, BC. It traveled over Vernon, then angled to the right, out of sight. It was around 11:00 p.m.

                                    My rational explanation at the time was that it was the jet nozzle of a smallish jet aircraft, travelling without running lights - for what ever reason. There seemed to be a small orange trail from the ball, suggesting a jet thrust/burn. I didn't associate it with anything exra-terrestrial.

                                    Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                    Date: January 10, 2004

                                    Hi Brian

                                    I was going through some of my old tapes, Jan 2004, and I found a clip of a UFO I remember well. I was taping the sky at the time and I noticed something dark in color moving across the sky going to the west. I thought it was a plane (because of the speed it was going) and I got on it just to see for sure. I got about three or four seconds of it and before I could zoom in on it, I caught my toe on something and nearly fell. After I recovered, it was gone. I know it wasn't a bird because it was the tenth of January and I don't think a bird could do what this did. It was going on a straight path for a while, then did a complete reverse turn and zipped back to where I saw it first, and continued back on it's original path. I didn't know if you would be interested in something that far back or not, since you really can't tell what it is, only what it does.

                                    Thank you to the witness for the report, footage and photos.

                                    Edmonton, Alberta Corporate Jet Pilot Sighting

                                    Date: May 10, 2004
                                    Time: Between 12:18 -12:28 a.m.

                                    "I am a highly experienced Corporate jet pilot operating out of the West Coast of British Columbia. I was a crew member on our Company aircraft during the early morning hours of Sunday, May 10, 2004 on a flight from Syracuse, New York to Calgary, Alberta. No passengers were on board, only the 2 pilot crew. As we approached Empress, Alberta and preparing for descent, we noticed a very bright light in the Northwest sky at about 12 degrees above the horizon. As the bright light (same intensity as Venus or Jupiter) travelled Southeast bound and came closer it "seemed" to transform into approximately 9 objects.

                                    The other pilot maintains that there was more like l2 objects. For the record, our cruising altitude at this time was 39000.' The salient feature was that the 3 trailing objects were approximately 1/3 of the brightness of the forward numbers which, as stated, were at least as bright as the planet Venus. The objects appeared to be flying in an organized formation and at a very considerable speed. I estimate roughly 700 -1000 Nautical miles per hour and possibly very much faster. Both pilots agree the duration of the event was about 15 seconds. There was no apparent trajectory and the lights appeared to maintain a perfectly level altitude throughout the duration.

                                    We were in perfectly clear conditions over the entire prairie region and at the time of the occurrence. I have seen hundreds of meteors during flight at night and have the absolute conviction this was NOT a meteor, nor a meteor breaking up. This because of a total lack of trajectory. At the time I believed the objects were flying at approximately 10,000' and at a distance of perhaps 5-15 Nautical miles at their closest point. As many would understand, distances and altitudes at night can be extremely hard to judge with certainty but the preceding estimate is the best I can suggest. The time of this event was not written down. Working backwards from the known landing time at Calgary I maintain the approximate time of the event was 12:23 a.m, Sunday, May 10/04 with a fudge factor of plus or minus 5 minutes. THEREFORE, best estimate is the sighting occurred between 12:18 -12:28 a.m. This occurrence was definitely spectacular enough that I would have believed numerous aircraft would have asked Edmonton Centre what this was. Being early Sunday morning, air traffic would certainly have been the lightest of the week. Surprisingly, NO calls emanated from any aircraft. And we decided we should clam up as well. The following is noteworthy: I have carefully worked the internet (hbccufo) to try and discern if other reports came in that night over southern Alberta. One will discover not less than 6 reports, some spectacular, that occurred at, or near Edmonton during our time frame. I am hard pressed to think other than that most, or all, of those described events are linked to the phenomenon we observed."

                                    HBCC UFO Note: I spent some time talking to the witness on the telephone and the person notes that: (Pilots words: (If one considers there is linkage to these events (ours to one or more of the other 3), and considering the others apparently involve low altitude movements (close to treetops) it all becomes very very intriguing). Now wonder what really did take place that early morning now knowing that these lights were making low altitude movements "close to treetops" ! A very credible witness with some other amazing reports he has told me.

                                    I would like to thank the witness for the report and taking the time with me on the telephone.

                                    Shape of objects: Small orb

                                    Full Description of event/sighting: I've seen two sets of pictures on Rense, now, just like the one I saw.

                                    Watching a chemtrail being laid down, heading SW, I noticed a bright spot, or dot, that was tracking the plane perfectly, just 'below' the trail. It was not reflected sunlight, it seemed to be emitting light, somehow. Bright point of light at great distance.

                                    It tracked the plane for several minutes before disappearing behind a natural cloud. When the plane emerged, there was no object following it.

                                    Most notable was the perfect tracking movement of the object.

                                    Additional Information:

                                    The airplane was laying a chemtrail/contrail and the object was approx: two fingers away from the aircraft. The airplane was heading SSW, the object didn't alter its' trajectory or distance from it, very steady and exact tracking. That was what got my attention in the first place. The plane flew behind a wispy cloud, but was obscured, then the object. Only the plane emerged from behind the cloud.

                                    Thank you very much to the witness for the report.

                                    Time: Approx: 11:00 a.m.

                                    Hi Brian

                                    I was taping this jet with trail today when I noticed this orb coming toward the jet. It was moving very fast so I couldn't wait to download it to see what it did. It was about 11:00 a.m. this morning (08-31-04) and started out with a blue sky when I got this. As the day went on, the"guys in the skies" dumped heavy on us. Anyways, the orb appears to get into the jet trail and spends quite a bit of time there before it leaves. I made a frame-by-frame slideshow from start to finish for you. This was amazing to me because others I've seen usually go over, under, or through in a straight line. You can see the orb between the trails in several frames before it leaves.It appears to either go over or through into the trails,not under,best as I can see.If it is really in those trails as it appears to be, that orb has to be at least 40 or 50 feet across because those trails are huge. If you decide to use this, let me know and I'll send you the clip also. I've got a couple more things of interest I'll send you too..Later my friend.

                                    P.S.The jet was heading south and the orb was coming from the east heading toward the west.

                                    Grande Prairie, Alberta Star Like And Possible Visitaion

                                    HBCC UFO Note: Warning !!! Parts of this report some may find disturbing as it has certainly bothered me to know a young child is going through something ? I will be making some enquiries to see what I might be able to find out and to pass along the information to the parent. Permission was granted to post this story in hopes others who are experiencing this type of thing will come forward.

                                    Date: September 5, 2004
                                    Time: 11:30 p.m.

                                    Number of witnesses: 2
                                    Number of objects: 1
                                    Shape of objects: Star like.

                                    Full Description of event/sighting: I have written to you before regarding a similar sighting out at my in-laws farm. We spotted two star like objects moving at an incredible speed. This time I write to you because I saw the same thing while sitting outside my Grande Prairie home.

                                    My husband and I were sitting out on our roof gazing up at the sky because it was such a clear night...all the stars were shining so brightly. It was amazing. Then I spotted a star coming from the east and moving west. It traveled across the sky and entered a cloud formation...the only one we could see....and then in seconds came out where it had entered and traveled east again. The whole event lasted about 5 or 6 min. My husband had heard my story of the sightings in Doe river, outside Dawson Creek....but when he finally saw what I had tried describing....he was in awe...he verbally went over the possibilities...a plane? no...travels much to fast and there were no lights or sounds...a satellite?.....no...satellites do not maneuver that fast from one direction to the other....We could only explain it as being a UFO.

                                    As for the object I told you about...we could see no tail...flashing lights...or any other strange things. The cloud it went into appeared to be a normal cloud...but it was the only one in the sky and it was large. There was no light emitted from the cloud at any time. There were no other aircraft in the area either.

                                    A couple of nights later, we had some friends visiting us from Dawson Creek. We were telling them about our experience and they suddenly became very excited...they had been camping just outside Dawson Creek when they too had seen a similar event at around the same time.

                                    Now, I really do believe we have seen alien spacecraft....especially since my daughter has started talking about people visiting her in her room.She is turning 4 in October. She is very perceptive and has always intrigued me with her abilities to "know" things that she shouldn't...and see things she shouldn't. I have always thought she had some paranormal ability. She
                                    is very coy with it also...she portrays herself as not having a special gift...but she is very open with me about it. Going back to the visitors in her room...I have begun to wonder if she is in fact being visited by aliens. My husband and I rarely talk about aliens in front of her...but she has explained a particular occurrence to me in detail that made my hair stand on end.

                                    About 1 year ago, I had a vivid dream. In my dream, I had gotten up and went to the kitchen to get a glass of water. I looked out the window and saw a saucer like object hovering over my neighbors house. I ran for my kids rooms to get them with the intention of hiding because I felt we were in danger. I do not remember much of the rest of the dream other then trying to find a place to hide and settling on the storage room in my basement...then I woke up and it was 10:00 a.m.,I never mentioned my dream. About a week later, my daughter came to me and looked deep into my eyes...and said" Mom,
                                    you didn't hide in the right place and they found you....I was under the table and they didn't see me." She walked away leaving me shocked and scared. I followed her and asked her questions about what she was talking about and she wouldn't tell me anything else. And she still hasn't told me more. How did she know this? Could it be it really happened? or is she again exhibiting ESP or has so.

                                    (Removed) picked up on my subconscious? Anyways...I hope that this information helps in your quest for answers...because I too am beginning to need answers. Good luck to you Brian.

                                    Now getting to my daughter...


                                    I have noticed some things over the past few years in regards to "strange marks". She often has unexplained bruising. They often appear on her arms and legs in oblong shapes...such as fingers...our finger print shapes.

                                    Also...very recently...she woke up with sore genitals. I gave her a bath and she said the water made it hurt more. I asked her if I could look and see...so I would know if she needed to see a doctor, or just had a rash or something. When I looked, she had a small piece of the inside of her vaginal lip missing...very close to the vaginal opening. At first I thought someone had "touched" her and I asked a series of questions. She was very open and seemed genuine when she said no one had abused her. I believe her.


                                    I shrugged it off as maybe she had scratched herself in her sleep...but it seemed very unusual. Another thing I find odd....she has developed allergies in the past 8 months...but she never stays allergic to the same thing. One day she can't be around dogs or she swells up and gets itchy, but a week later she's out playing with them. Or one day she can't have eggs, but the day after she eats them and she's fine. This occurs in numerous instances.

                                    Another thing that gets me, in the past year she often wakes up and vomits, and then is fine for the rest of the day. I have had all these things checked by a doctor and no answers.


                                    Now, I am a very concerned parent...and I ask my daughter about things in a manner she will understand, but is point blank. Such as, every morning I ask her if she had any dreams. Often she comes to me without my asking because the ratio of bad dreams is about 70%. She often dreams of the same things...fire.."bad guys" "bad animals". I have tried asking her if
                                    she thinks some dreams are real, but I don't think she really understands.

                                    As for myself, I don't recall any other vivid dreams such as that one. I too often have unexplainable bruising and injuries. I have woke up with a sore knee on one occasion....sore neck...and various other things. I have never had a "scoop mark". I have woken with the feeling of having had my throat scraped though...like I was missing tissue on the inside of my throat. The
                                    pain would disappear after a few hours.


                                    Sometimes a person begins to feel like they are imagining things. But you have to stop and ask yourself...out of all the possibilities...what category does this fit into? I myself don't really know. But I have a feeling that there is more to all this then I've been told.


                                    Take care Brian.


                                    Thank you very much to the witness for the report.

                                    Hi Brian

                                    I'm glad I was taking pictures of chemtrails this afternoon and evening.I think it was about 6:30 p.m. today,.09-06-94,.I was videoing a chemtrail that had just been laid. I noticed something bright on the northeast end above it, but by the time I started taping, it was in front of the trail. I taped it till I lost it in the tree. Whatever it was had a short little trail behind it. It was heading west coming from the east. I thought this was odd because I've been skywatching regular now for about a year and I've never seen a plane with a short trail, they either have a long trail, about ten times the length of the plane, or they're laying a trail across the sky, or have no trail at all. It was about 7:52 p.m. when I saw a flash in the northeast sky, I had my camera then and I pointed toward where I saw it and snapped it. I saw that I captured something bright to the left of the chemtrail but didn't notice the one in the chemtrail until I downloaded them. The bright one was still catching the sun, but the chemtrail was blocking the other one from being lit up. These were heading nearly due north. To me the picture shows the UFOs aren't planes, and they also have short trails as in the video clip. The video and picture were taken in Kaufman county, 20 miles east of Dallas, Texas. Brian, I'm sending you the video clip and a copy of the un-retouched picture of the objects and some blowups of the objects.

                                    Thank you to the witness for the report, footage and photos.

                                      HBCC UFO Research Recently Reported Sightings



                                      Newsletter Release: September 11 , 2004



                                      Queens, New York Rounded Triangle With U.S. Markings

                                      Date: 1993 or 1994
                                      Time: Between 3:00 - 3:30 a.m.

                                      I read one of your recent reported sightings and it reminded me of something strange that happened. It was the sighting that happened in the UK with the craft over the hospital. I read it on Rense.com. Anyway about a week ago I was walking my dog about 3-3:30 in the morning and I didn't see nothing, but I heard something. It sounded like something massive was passing overhead but I couldn't see it. The strange thing though it was a sound you had to focus your attention on. Reading about that sighting reminded me of the incident. Another weird thing is that on that same block 10 years ago I saw an anti gravity craft. Well when I described it to someone with a site that's what they said it was. I saw it very clear, it was about 40-50 feet up in the sky. Just a few feet above a 3 story building. It was so visible that I could make out the writing on the side, it said U.S. It was shaped like a rounded triangle and had rocket type things on the bottom but it was flying sideways. I followed it till I couldn't see it no more. It was loud too. Funny thing I was the only outside at the time. It's weird because I live in Queens, New York and it's not a quiet place. But I will admit it really slows down at night almost dead-like. So this was probably in 1993 or 1994. Can't recall the exact date. The time was between 9 and 10 pm.

                                      Well that's all I can remember right now. If you have any questions feel free to me.

                                      Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                      "Weird" Photo - Beam Of Light And Possible Figure ?

                                      Newspaper article and photo.
                                      http://www.prrecordgazette.com/story.php?id=116160

                                      Also story and additional location pictures can be found at my website:
                                      http://www.hbccufo.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=1834

                                      HBCC UFO Research Note: I became aware of this story due to the kindness of one of the residence from the area who passed the story along to me. Also he ran out and took the below four pictures of the area where the beam of light was filmed. I would like to extend my many thanks to the fellow for doing this.

                                      Also after I received the story I immediately called the newspaper to enquire about the story. I left my contact information with the paper in hopes the reporter who wrote the story would contact me. He did not 15 minutes or so after I left a message. The reporter and I had a nice conversation about the article. He confirmed that he did go to the Photo Lab where the picture was developed and they folks at the photo lab told him that the picture was not tampered with, and not the product double exposure or of any technical defect that they could think of.

                                      Note from fellow who took location pictures for me: Just came back from the site here are some reference pics the building that at the time of the pic was not there it was just breaking ground is the Kingdom Hall Jehovah's Witness.

                                      Vernon in Connecticut Flickering Lights

                                      Date: 2004 (continuing)
                                      Time: After dark.

                                      Message: Hi. I don't know if this means anything to you or not, but we didn't know who else to contact with regard to what we've seen lately. Over the past year we have seen strange flickering lights over Vernon in Connecticut. They seems to vary in number depending on the clarity of the night sky. However, they remain in a symmetrical pattern at different heights. Over a period of hours they move gradually higher and higher until they can no longer be seen. They only appear on clear nights when most stars are clearly visible. After watching them for a period of hours my husband and I have noted them moving higher and higher until no longer visible. They kind of sway like in a hovering motion. Initially we thought they were helicopters but they made no sound. There is a direct flight path on the route that they take up and it appears that when a plane enters their line of sight that that move quicker in altitude as if to get out of the way. Have you heard of any other such sightings and how can this be explained in a logical fashion as we're really quite scared. Please get back to us if you've heard of anything similar.

                                      Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                      Phoenix, Arizona Night Orbs And Large Triangle

                                      Date: April 2004 (continuing)
                                      Time: 2:55 a.m. - (Triangle) 3:53 a.m. - (Bright Night Orb)

                                      Hey Brian! How are you today? Hope all is doing well.

                                      When I first talked to you in June I told you about the night orbs and the big triangle I recorded. I just realized that you never saw it! I am sending you these two clips that are awesome.

                                      The first clip is the big triangle. I was out in the morning hours walking my dog as I have been doing for weeks. Since April of this year I have been recording these lights in the sky on a regular basis but this night was special.

                                      I usually get single orbs that look like stars but disappear and re-appear anywhere in the sky and move in straight lines. Some are brighter than others, some flash, some fast and some slow. This night was different.

                                      At first I thought I was seeing things but since I recorded it I couldn't have been. I thought for the first time I was getting 2 orbs at once but it was actually 3 in a triangular formation. It came from the South and was moving about 20-30 mph(guess). Altitude is unknown because it looked like 3 stars in a triangular formation so it was hard to tell. It was heading right for me and than veered to the East.

                                      The sighting lasted just over 5 minutes until I lost it in the clouds some 15 miles away. The funny thing about this was that during the recording I thought there were only 2 orbs so most of the video shows the 2 lights in the front but since I panned back a few times to show the object passing by the stars I noticed that there were 3 lights in a triangular formation. That's the clip I am sending you.

                                      The other clip is a bright orb captured around the same time but the night after. I captured over 30 or more of these single orbs but this one is the brightest. Also on the night that I taped this single bright orb I captured 7 of them in one half hour! Coming from all directions all different speeds.

                                      Pretty cool.

                                      I hope you enjoy the clips and give my best to all, Thanks again,

                                      Thank you to the gentleman for all of the clips and report.

                                      Phoenix, Arizona Sky Worm

                                      Date: August 25, 2004 Time: 1:01 p.m.
                                      Brian, I am sending you a clip of these worm-like objects I am getting on tape lately. This is the first one I captured a few weeks ago. They start out like this but eventually gain altitude and turn into balls, weird.

                                      I just want to let you know a few things about these worms in the sky. For one, I thought it may be a kite but there is no string. Second, it went directly over my house and stayed over it for 20 minutes just moving a few feet here and there but staying in the same general area over the house. Also I don't know of any kites that turn into a ball and then head off somewhere.

                                      I just want to let you know a few things about these worms in the sky. For one, I thought it may be a kite but there is no string. Second, it went directly over my house and stayed over it for 20 minutes just moving a few feet here and there but staying in the same general area over the house. Also I don't know of any kites that turn into a ball and then head off somewhere.

                                      For all I know I may be wrong. There may be a logical explanation for this weird worm in the sky but I have several of them on tape from different parts of the valley up to 45 miles from my house. So it's not just over my house. I also noticed that they are around when there are chemtrails present and we've had them the past few days.

                                      I thought it may be a plastic bag from a grocery store but I followed one for almost 2 hours until I ran out of road. It never raised in altitude (so it seemed) and when it slowed down it looked like a worm on pavement. When it decided to move it rolled up into a ball and went on its way. Like I said it did this for at least 2 hours that I saw it. Stopping, moving, stopping, moving. Very subtle, very hard to see if you don't focus the right way. I mean, it's 108 degrees outside who wants to be outside? Again, weird...

                                      But all this stuff is weird and maybe someone can let us all know what is actually up in our skies. I'll catch up with you later.

                                      Thank you to the gentleman for all of the clips and report.

                                      Phoenix, Arizona Object In Vicinity Of The Plane

                                      Hi Brian,

                                      I took this video about a week ago and forgot to send it to you before I went out of town.

                                      I spotted this object by accident. I was following an airplane with my camera when I saw a light reflection in the vicinity of the plane. I panned back and saw this object heading North at a fast pace and I knew this was not a plane. It had no wings as you can see and it was spinning. It must have been over 10k ft.in altitude and speed is unknown. The winds that day were West to East about 5-10mph but this object look silver metallic and you can easily see it rotating so balloons are ruled out. It was also moving very fast(much much faster than the breeze) and on a straight path North.

                                      There was no erratic behavior no right angle turns and no stopping on dimes with this object. It just kept going on a straight course North. I wish it was more but I think this is still a good sighting.

                                      Hope all is going well. Thank you Brian.

                                      Thank you to the gentleman for all of the clips and report.

                                      Kodiak Island, Alaska Stationary Object Over Coast Guard Base

                                      Date: September 8, 2004
                                      Time: Between 2:00 -3:00 p.m.

                                      Dear Brian, I'm here on Kodiak island, Alaska. Yesterday we went river fishing for salmon nearby the Coast Guard base, COMSTA --Communications Station--and I lay on my back in the warm weather watching contrails from departing Anchorage jets flying SW towards Hawaii or the Philippines (?). Anyway, I noticed the SAME exact silvery dot maintaining a precise location in the sky while the contrails drifted and the lower clouds scurried over the mountain tops. I thought a weather balloon would drift, even a short distance in mild weather (It was almost windless) but I thought it peculiar anyway. It may well have been a weather balloon. Still, it was in the contrails and out but never moved anywhere across the sky. Too high for a tether too--!

                                      Additional Information:

                                      Dear Brian---As a sometimes reader of Rense.com and contributor, I find myself questioning the chemtrails aspect. And having watched the flight pattern of the Anchorage jets as they heading SW over the island on that brilliantly sunny day (with a few low clouds), it was then I noticed the "shiny dot." The late afternoon sunlight reflected off it--Had to have been about 2-3:00 p.m. and lasted about 2 hours. As I said, I was watching my brother cast for silver salmon (he got his limit) while I slapped at bugs. Reclining on the bank seemed to offer a respite from the bug onslaught-lol. Anyway, I watched the silver dot suspended there and it didn't move. Now the high altitude contrails didn't blow away either but simply expanded and grew thinner. The dot must have been quite high because it was obscured but did NOT disappear within the contrails. If it was a balloon though it would have floated even a little way and it did NOT move one way or another. However, the contrails (3-4 jets passes at intervals of 8-10 minutes) did move, widening and growing thinner, as contrails do. The dot was still visible in the same place. Now, where we were fishing was at Buskin Lake surrounded by antennae, which I believe are part of the COMSTA Kodiak coast guard base. Here is what I found on google about the lake and antennae. Website can be found at: http://209.165.152.119/radios/commsta.html

                                      I'm former USAF and my brother was US Marines. I didn't point out the dot to him because he was enjoying himself and has bad eyesight--lol---I had hoped the dot would zig and zag--always wanted to see a UFO, so that is why I checked it from time to time. When we left it was still there, 2 hours at least, in the same spot. Even windless skies aren't without a trace of wind in the upper levels, I don't believe, but it was hard to tell the elevation. The few lower clouds were moving across the tops of the mountains, as I noted.

                                      Thank you very much to the witness for the excellent report.

                                      Date: September 9, 2004
                                      Time: 8:30 p.m.

                                      Last night I saw another inexplicable light in the sky. I was on the phone to my sister in Sacramento for about 90 minutes last night. As you may recall, I live in Escondido, about 30 miles north of San Diego. For part of the time I was on the phone, I was sitting in a wicker chair on my balcony, which faces west. I often see aircraft. There is a local airfield about 15 miles west of here, and corporate and private aircraft are always coming and going. I am a mile from our local hospital, and often see medical helicopter flights quite close-up. Sheriff's helicopters are also a common sight. In the late afternoon I even see a fair number of hot-air balloons, several miles in the distance.

                                      Last night, as I was sitting on the balcony talking with my sister, I became aware of a light which I first presumed was Jupiter, and then I thought it was an aircraft because it appeared to be flashing red and green lights. I didn't pay any attention at first,
                                      until I suddenly realize that it was not moving at all, simply hovering. It was high up, and too far away to be heard even if it was an aircraft. I went inside and grabbed my binoculars, and tried to bring it into focus as I described to my sister what I was seeing. Through the binocs, it seemed to be a cluster of lights, which irregularly flashed red and green. I watched it for approximately ten minutes. This was about 8:30 PM. Later on, I walked back into the apartment. After hanging up, I walked back outside to look for the object. It was gone, and I could see Jupiter in the approximate location where the object had been.

                                      There were a few high clouds, but the night was otherwise clear. Was I seeing some atmospheric distortion of Jupiter? I simply don't know. I do know that the red and green flashes were coming from opposite sides of the object, which is why I initially assumed it was an airplane. It did not move at all, the entire time I was observing it. My binoculars are quite strong, but not enough to get a fix on any structure. Just the flashing lights. I have no idea what I was looking at, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't Jupiter, as I see Jupiter nightly, and have never seen it flashing lights before.

                                      Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                      Sumner, Washington Short Blimp Like UFO

                                      Date: September 10, 2004
                                      Time: 9:22 a.m.

                                      Hi Brian!! I'm so excited because I seen another UFO this morning-September 10, 2004....I was on my way to work which is about 10 minutes from my house. They just opened a road that leads from Hwy 167 to 142nd Avenue East in Sumner, Washington. I decided to try this new road and it was 9:22 a.m., I was happy to see that this new road cut a few minutes when I put my blinker on to turn right into our driveway. Suddenly I noticed a white sort of long (maybe like a short blimp) object traveling in the cloud stream...it was pretty white but made me wonder if it were a plane but I couldn't see any wings on it but then that really didn't mean much because sometimes its hard to tell if objects have wings depending on the angle...anyhow, I'm watching it and it's floating strangely and begins to descend just a little but enough to tell me that it wasn't a plane. It stays in the cloud stream and gets less white to where I can barely see it against the cloud it was in. It heads to the ridge (I guess East) of Lake Tapps where the 8th Street intersection is and it gets real bright for about 3 seconds then dims down to a faint spot, comes out of the clouds and gets bright again, now heading South towards Sumner - it remains bright for maybe 2 seconds and then dims down so dim that it's hard to see - looks like a faint spot that almost isn't there and then it completely disappears! I'm so glad I tried this new road today because if I would've went the other way, I might not have seen it. Hope you are well - Take care

                                      Thank you to the witness for the interesting report.

                                      Phoenix, Arizona "Bag-Like" Object Turns Into Orb

                                      Date: September 10, 2004
                                      Time: 4:03 p.m.

                                      Hey Chief! Today was weird. I am sending you 2 clips, both have serious distortions on the video itself. A lot happened today but when I played back the video it looks like the camera vibrated vigorously and a black line appears at the top of the video even though the camera was on the tripod and fairly still.

                                      The first clip was of a "bag-like" object that somehow turns into an orb. When I started to tape this first object it acted like a worm in the sky. But after 15 minutes of this object meandering in the sky it took the form of a ball-like object and looked like all the other orbs I've taped. So now I am confused. Or am I lead to believe that this is a bag but it is actually something that takes the shape of a worm than changes back into an orb to travel?

                                      The clip shows the object moving to the left and back to its starting position very fast. Now as this is about to happen the shaking begins and the clip is almost impossible to see but if you watch it over and over you can see the motion clearly. On T.V. it's very obvious because the screen is big but on the computer it's a little more difficult to see, but you can tell.

                                      The second clip is of another worm-like object flipping over and over and over and over and over, never stopping the flipping motion even for a second! This went on the whole 20 minutes I saw this. I align the camera so a tree branch
                                      is in view for a reference and out of nowhere (where else?) another reflective silver-metallic objects streaks right by it to the left side of the object. (facing me)

                                      Again the camera starts to vibrate and gets distorted when another object appears. Luckily I was able to get this object passing by because there were two more right after it but the camera vibrated and you can't see them unless it's on a bigger screen or T.V.

                                      There were plenty of chemtrails today and I am starting to see a pattern with these sightings and these weird worm-like objects appearing by chemtrails. That's a whole other theory I don't wish to get into right now. Crazy today.

                                      Hope all is well,

                                      Thank you to the gentleman for all of the clips and report.

                                      Toronto, Ontario Over Clay Hills Caledon

                                      Date: September 10, 2004
                                      Time: 11:48 p.m.

                                      It's 11;48 pm Fri. September 10, 2004. I've been out on my deck looking in the east sky and there it is plan as can be, it's giving off lights as bright and obvious as an airplane. But it's not! It's a star ship. It's been moving closer and it's doing the up and down and quick circular motions. I have seen it a couple of times in the same location off and on for a week. Last weekend my 75 year old mother saw the same thing on Friday night but not Saturday. The stars were all still in the same location. Anyway I'm located 1 hour northwest of Toronto Ont. I live 1/4 km. from what they call the bad lands or clay hills in Caledon. I have a very good view from my backyard.

                                      Hopefully someone else saw this tonight and can confirm. Thanks.

                                      Additional Information:

                                      This UFO was in the northeast sky, coming straight across to the west sky directly above my head within a hour or so.

                                      As I said it didn't take to long for it to get to my location as it did little up and down back and forth movements along the way,every once in a while it appeared to do a circular motion. (that's when the lights are obvious), I watched it for almost two hours.

                                      From a distance it almost looks like airplane light,but as it gets closer you can see the difference. It doesn't flicker like a star,it flashes, the lights appear to be going in a circular motion, bright white light,red and green. It was quite high up, But I imagine by that shape it was round or oval. I heard know sound.

                                      I do live around 26 km north of Pearson Int, Airport and there is a small flying club just 6 km. south of me.

                                      Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                        Marine on St. Croix, Minnesota Black Triangle Sighting

                                        Date: Summer of 1997
                                        Time: Evening

                                        Dear Brian: Since someone reported a 1993-4 sighting I thought I should chime in with my Black Triangle sighting in the summer of 1997, in Marine on St. Croix, Minnesota, a town 15 miles north of Stillwater in the St. Croix River Valley bordering Wisconsin, about 50 miles northeast of the Twin Cities.

                                        My sister and I happened to be watching the X-Files without any big hoopla. The show ended she wandered over to the sliding door out onto the deck and said, "See there are those lights that I've seen before." She had told me about multi-colored spheres doing formations unexplainable by conventional technology which she had seen in the river valley a little north and also earlier in Taos, New Mexico. She was bored and went inside.

                                        I kept on observing these "plasma spheres" on the horizon to the east and spent maybe 10 minutes comparing them to possible explanations so I could potentially rule out what I was observing. Different colored lights were hovering, making 90 degree directional changes both vertically and horizontally.

                                        Then I realized something was slowly heading right towards me from the horizon, probably 10 miles away. I waited and a large, flat black triangle slowly flew right over our yard, right above the tree-line. I was not familiar with the black triangle sightings at this time but my immediate reaction was that it must be some secret military craft.

                                        The object was so close I could have hit it with a rock and it flew very slowly while only making a slight humming sound. I didn't dare look away. There were lights on each its corners and the black triangle slowly passed maybe 100 feet over the roof of our house and continued on across the river valley.

                                        My parents use to operate the local legal (removed) for the surrounding towns and one of their workers had brought in a binder of clippings from the UFO flap in the area during the 1970s. There were large round UFOs right in the paper and a cattleman had moved away because of mutilation to his cattle on his land adjacent to a federal wildlife reserve. Also that area is a military flight test area.

                                        My dad, also in summer 1997, saw a UFO -- he said it was "bigger than the moon and had lights all around the center of it." He couldn't figure out what it was so I told him that was a U.F.O. and he refused to accept that term since he's a rationalist -- but he was listening to Art Bell at the time as well.

                                        It wasn't until I came across other descriptions of Black Triangle Sightings on Rense.com a few years ago that I realized I had experienced the exact same phenomenon as many others. My book reading further verified the extensive sightings elsewhere, i.e. Belgium. But not till now have I reported the sighting, as far as I can remember, and I didn't see my location marked on the map in the recent Black Triangle report.

                                        Thanks,

                                        Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                        Foxboro, Ontario Cloud Formation

                                        Date: August 31, 2004
                                        Time: 9:10 p.m.

                                        At 9:00 p.m. EST I went outside to let our house dogs out. I decided since there were no mosquitoes evident to sit on the front porch. It was a beautiful clear sky and the full moon hadn't come up yet. I could see many stars above and since we do not live in the city, the lights of the stars were clear. I could see the glow of the lights of the city of Belleville to the south of us.

                                        At approx 9:10 p.m. I noticed a strange orangey object on the Western horizon above the hill to the northwest of us. I called my husband out to see this as this object was moving towards our house and it was bigger than any plane I have seen. He came out and viewed the object in the sky. Then went inside to get his binoculars. When he came out and viewed the object with the binoculars he noticed its unusual shape. "I determined that it was shaped like a snow angel with a pointed head, that is it was an elongated object with four fan-like projections at its sides.

                                        The pointed head had a blinking light. As it approached its color changed to white." We then called our son out to view this object in the sky. He confirmed the same shape that we had both observed. It was moving from west to east and heading right over our house. All three of us viewed this object coming towards the house and its shape and size. It seemed to be a glowing cloud with a flashing light. The 'angel' shape was glowing and you could see stars through it. However at the 'pointed' end you could not see stars through it.

                                        We also noted 5-6 aircraft all heading the same direction around the object. Some did appear to be circling the object. The object was considerably larger than any of these planes. Approximately 9:15 p.m.-9:20 p.m., the objects light stopped blinking. But, the cloud 'angel' continued to move towards our house (easterly). At this point (approx 9:25 p.m.) Gordon went back
                                        into the house. My son and I stayed out to watch this object. It was now almost directly over the house. I had the binoculars and watched as a bright circular orangey-yellow object flew out of the cloud. This object was about the size of 1/4 of the full moon.

                                        The object headed directly north at a much faster speed than the cloud had been moving. The object appeared to be about
                                        1/8 the size of the full moon when it reached the stars that make up the Big Dipper. It reached that position in the sky in about 30 seconds. The object then turned 90 degrees and headed back west. It disappeared moments later. The cloud disappeared within 5 minutes of the object leaving it. All planes then seemed to have left the vicinity when we looked for them again after the object disappeared. All the ones we had observed around this object that is. It should be noted here that at no time did we hear any noise from this object. We could hear and see the planes, but, not this other object in the
                                        sky. Note: It was moving laterally to its length across the sky.

                                        Hello Brian,

                                        We are going to check out the further info indicated in your email today and tonight and will send a 2nd email regarding same before the end of the weekend.

                                        We are going to provide the report we did for NUFORC below as well. But, we wanted to clarify a few items regarding same. The report will appear with ___ above and below it.

                                        Where we live in Foxboro, Ontario we are about 1.25 hours driving time - 125km or so from the St. Lawrence Seaway on the north end of Lake Ontario. We live about 7 or so miles north of the city of Belleville (13 km). All projected flight paths for this rocket launch do not indicate that it went over eastern Ontario. If you look on a map you will see where we are.

                                        The cloud formation did have a blinking light on it - as all the reports said. We have drawn pictures of the formation and also of the object that came out of this formation, heading north and then did a 90 degree turn west before disappearing. We found a picture of this object online recently. It was EXACTLY what we saw come out of the cloud that was over our house at the time. We can provide this picture we found upon request, we kept a copy for our records.

                                        The cloud being explained as the rocket expelling fuel we can readily accept. But, we do not feel what we saw a 'yellow/orange orb shaped object' coming out of the cloud could have been the satellite or explained as part of the rocket either. The 'orb' pulled some of the cloud formation with it and went north, then turned west 90 degrees almost adjacent to one of the stars in the Big Dipper. It was considerably larger than the star it passed in the sky! I can almost compare it to the size of the harvest moon at some points during the fall. Except the moon wasn't up yet and rises to the east of our house. About 45 minutes after the object disappeared the moon did rise and its color was very similar to the orb, but, it was even bigger than the orb we saw that night.

                                        The 'cloud' came in from the west over a low rise of a hill to the north west of our home. It came directly east and came over the southeastern edge of our house as we watched it. The flashing lighted end was pointed directly south. The 'object' seemed to come from the southern end of the cloud and came directly out of the middle of it heading north. It flew at a fast rate of speed to the north and turned west and was gone in under 1 minute from leaving the cloud! This was considerably faster than any of the planes we saw overhead at the same time.

                                        Below link are the witnesses drawings they made of what they saw and they also gave location in the sky.

                                        Dear Mr. Vike,

                                        My guess is that, like NUFORC, you have received numerous reports of a bright cloud seen over Eastern North America on 2004 Sep 01 at about 01 UTC (Aug 31 at 21 h EDT).

                                        It was related to the launch of NROL-1 from Cape Canaveral, on an Atlas 2AS rocket, a couple of hours earlier.

                                        Spaceflight Now has the ground track, which crossed North America.

                                        The cloud visible over North America was the result of the Centaur's venting of excess propellant.

                                        The strobing light effect reported by some observers was caused by the tumbling of the Centaur. Observers who had telescopes observed both the Centaur, and the satellite, which was still nearby, in a similar orbit.

                                        Centaur propellant dumps have been seen many times over the years, most often by satellite observers and astronomers, but sometimes by the general public.

                                        Last evening's propellant dump was particularly prominent, because it occurred at a relatively low altitude, below about 10,000 km. Most commonly they occur at about 40,000 km, and even then they are visible to the unaided eye, but not as long, and not quite as spectacular.

                                        I posted my observation report to SeeSat-L: http://satobs.org/seesat/Aug-2004/0341.html

                                        As have several other observers:

                                        Full Description of event/sighting: I was looking out my large 2nd story bedroom window watching the stars when I saw several very slow moving mainly red and an occasional white flashing light on some indiscernibly shaped object, silent, low flying..just above the tree tops of the mountain just outside my window. It moved along the tree line for approximately two minutes then disappeared on the other side of the mountain, reappeared flew the tree line again and repeated the pattern of flight for maybe 4 or 5 minutes. Flying north west and disappeared over mountain.The lights were flashing in a way that I first thought of some sort of rescue mission. In the 4 or 5 minutes it only flew over about 1/3 of the mountain. I later saw what I knew to be airplanes flying in a similar direction but much higher, I could hear them and the lights didn't look anything like what I had just witnessed earlier.

                                        So who knows...I've never seen anything like it and for the first time I'm visiting a UFO sighting web site.

                                        Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                        I was just getting ready to come in tonight when I saw this light above in the tree. I had my camera in my pocket, on and ready, and snapped one picture of it. Have no idea what it is, didn't hear any sound from it and didn't see it move. When I started to take another, it was just gone. It was about 8:00 p.m., sky was clear and I didn't see any other aircraft in the vicinity, no wind. Thought you would like to see it. Later my friend

                                        Thank you to the witness for the report and pictures.

                                        Phoenix, Arizona Barbell Object Returns

                                        Date: September 11, 2004
                                        Time: 11:42 a.m.

                                        Hi Brian,

                                        I was out in the back yard saturday 9-11-04 at 11:42 a.m. When I looked up to see the "barbell" UFO again. This time it looked like it was morphing from cylinder to barbell to triangle shaped.

                                        I was able to video tape it for about 7 min. This time it was moving from north to south in a clear blue sky. The wind was blowing from east to west. There was a tree branch blowing in the wind that was geting it the way, but I was still able to get some good video of this thing.

                                        It moved out of site as the tree was geting in the way. I was able to get it on the 5x lens with about 70x power, (no digital)
                                        What is going on over phoenix? Someone let me know if they saw this thing too. This thing was weird.

                                        Thanks Brian,

                                        Denver, Colorado Lights Moving On Of Cloud

                                        Date: September, week of 6th to 11th, 2004
                                        Time: 9:00 p.m.

                                        Other sightings the last few nights as I walk in the evening as is my habit: Small cloud that I immediately thought was a "cloud ship" as some call them, under a larger "cloud ship." Probably about 9 PM that night maybe a week ago. A star like object, flashing red, blue, and white moved out of the lower cloud and straight up into the larger cloud. After several minutes 3 similar lights left the large cloud, one at a time and proceeded in a south west direction, going I suppose a moderate speed. Then the 2 clouds evaporated very quickly over a few minutes.

                                        About 3 nights ago, saw red and green flashing object around 10:30 PM that moved very slowly in the North, much larger than a star, about 1/4 inch in size. I watch it for several minutes, and then it just poof, went out.

                                        Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                        Caledon, Ontario Object And Aura Around It

                                        Time: 9:30 p.m.

                                        I was at my friends a couple of km.'s south of my home last night. From their backyard you could see the west sky quite well, As I stood looking in the sky, I looked out of curiosity to the east sky to see if there was any action going on in that part of the sky, but not there.

                                        Any ways as we sat down at the fire around 9:30 pm. I looked to the west sky and there it was, I pointed it out to a couple of people and they watched as it got brighter and gave off some type of aura around it. It was zig zagging and doing circular movements, it was above a tree in the distance and we watched it drop below the tree line within 10 min. Even my friends are starting to believe when they see things like this going on. Some them made comments that it could be a starlight or airplane, But of course I know what it was and there's still people out there that have a hard time believing. (FEAR) maybe.

                                        Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                        Denver, Colorado Huge Perfect Saucer

                                        Time: 7:30 p.m.

                                        About 7:30 PM last night (Sat.) I was leaving the store and heading west out of the parking lot. There was a huge perfect saucer, brilliantly lit (kind of light golden color) in the western sky, about 15 degrees above the horizon. It was beginning to get dusky and the sun has set and small clouds in the area were dark gray in color. This saucer is several miles away, but I can't see the mountains at this vantage point, so I am unsure of distance. It was about 2 inches in length, the height about 1/2 inch. Absolutely perfect shape, could not be a cloud. It drifted very slowly south. I watched it as I could while driving north, until the trees obscured it. I looked for it after I reached the area I live in and could drive more safely to look for it, but I could not find it again, I think the trees, etc., blocked it. The traffic was too heavy to stay in, and I did not think to pull off where I could watch in safety. But this was fun. No flashing lights, etc., just beautiful bright slightly golden glow.

                                        Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                        I was planning on sending this one also,but I was trying to enhance it a little so you can see it better.I didn't do a real good job, but it's some better.Anyway it was about 7:30 p.m. on 09-11-04 when I saw this small plane coming toward me starting to turn left.I took a couple pics of it,the first picture just had the plane in it.The second one appears to have a saucer above it
                                        to the right.I'm sending both pics to you with the enhanced one also to see what you think.Same details as the first one I sent except 30 minutes earlier. Check out the the top right side of the picture also, looks like a orb too.

                                        Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                          Red Bluff, Quesnel B.C A Large Circle Of Light And Beam

                                          Date: Early Fall/late Summer 2002
                                          Time: Between 9:00 -10:00 p.m.

                                          About 2 years ago in Quesnel in the Red Bluff area (I believe it was early fall/late summer about 9-10 pm), a friend and I were driving along when we noticed these lights in the sky. It was a large circle of light (several hundred feet in diameter) with about 8 smaller circles all perfectly the same size (each probably about 1 tenth the size of the large center circle) that rotated around the large center circular light, and would change direction every so often. It was in the sky for at least an hour. We weren't the only one's who saw it. There were people all over the neighborhood standing at the end of their driveways watching it.

                                          Anyway, we drove around trying to find the source until we finally saw a beam of light coming up from the forest way in the distance. Once we saw this, we thought for sure someone was just messing around with laser lights. I never did see anything in the newspaper about it and was wondering if anyone else ever reported it or found out if it was actually someone just playing with lights. At the time, that's what I thought, but after reading stories like the sighting at Shag Harbour, who knows? Maybe a downed UFO signaling for repairs/help. haha..anyway, I was just wondering :) I'm sure someone would have had to reported the lights being that so many people were watching them. Thanks for your time.

                                          Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                          Wayne County, Pennsylvania Black Triangle

                                          Date: November 2003
                                          Time: Approx: 1:30 a.m.

                                          Since I moved to PA, Wayne county, three years ago, I have seen two, the first on was in mid Nov. 2003 at about 1:30am. I woke up for no apparent reason and went to the kitchen window facing northwest. I saw a big black triangle aircraft coming from northern direction with white lights underneath on every corner circular shape, it was only flying only approx.
                                          1000 feet above my home, and it did not make a sound moving very slowly at a southern direction. The object did not have any exhaust or fumes coming out of it. Tobyhanna Army Depot only 10 miles away it was heading that direction.

                                          I just wanted to know Brian, am I really seeing UFO's or is there a real good explanation for the two objects I have witnessed?

                                          Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                          Mississauga, Ontario Blue Circular Light

                                          Date: July 2004 (?)
                                          Time: 1:30 a.m.

                                          Location of Sighting: Derry Road and Fifth Line.
                                          Number of witnesses: 3
                                          Number of objects: 1
                                          Shape of objects: Circular


                                          Full Description of event/sighting: I am from Mississauga. For my own curiosity, I would like to know if you can tell me what I saw. My friends and I went to an "ABANDONED" area, which the house on the property was burned down. We walked through the trail towards the house. I had walked through this area about 50 times previously. This was the first time either of my two friends had been there, and the first time I had brought a torch (fire). About 30-40 feet in, I see this blue circular light about ten feet in the air. There was some sort of glow, so to speak, around this light and I had absolutely no idea what it was.

                                          At this point we stopped walking. This light actually started dancing from left to right, and I was just in astonishment because there was nothing underneath the light. BUT, it's not as if the light was illuminating the surrounding area, because it really wasn't, but the moonlight was enough to show there was nothing under it. There was no noise whatsoever.

                                          I few seconds later, this object had magically started to come at us literally. I still thought that someone had a light, and it was a homeless person just finding a place to sleep, even though I SAW that none was under the light. I, at this point, basically started to scream, "RUN, RUN, RUN!!", over and over. I ended up flipping over a broken down tree in the middle of the path. When we got the car the light was mysteriously gone. I have not told many of my friends about this, because I wouldn't believe them if they told me. I had dropped one of my shoes and my phone in there.

                                          We came back 10 minutes later because I couldn't afford to buy a new phone, and considering I was not alone, I decided to go and get it. On our drive back, nobody was walking on the side of the road, and nobody was in the trail when we came back. I went in alone, because my friends were too scared to come, and the only way I found my phone was because my friend was calling it. Anyways, I am not e-mailing you this to sell a story, and try to make any money in any way, but my friends and I are only curious as to what we had seen, and you seem to know a lot about these mysterious lights. I didn't even know about "orbs" until I started researching about this stuff. Please reply to me at your earliest convenience, and any information would be greatly appreciated.

                                          Additional Information:

                                          Hi Brian

                                          I thank you responding so quickly. I will get the other two witnesses to send you a detailed e-mail with what they saw, possibly indicating some more information that I may have left out.

                                          You can do whatever you see fit with the information I have given you. Just like you said, someone may have experienced something similar, and may make a report of it as well.

                                          Considering the distance this object was from us, I would say that it must have been about one foot in diameter.

                                          At the closest point the object must have been approximately 15 feet away from us. Even at this distance, I could not smell anything strange in the air, but I am not sure if one of the people that I was with had noticed anything. I will make sure he answers all these question in his e-mail to you without reading my responses so I do not throw him off at all.

                                          My friend, known as (removed), did most definitely shine the flame or torch at this object, and I am almost certain that a few seconds after he did, this object had began to come at us. This entire time, the only noise was coming from the three of us.

                                          It seemed to me that there was always a mist or glow, so to speak, around this object, and I am not sure if it developed into a trail once it moved. We went back during the day because my (removed) thought there was an incline through the path in front of us because the light was sort of high up, but I told him and then showed him the ground is level. We never really paid any attention to circles in the grass but if any circles have been made, it would be very easy to see that considering there is not a lot of movement there.

                                          Thank you, Brian, for all of your time, and I will get the other two witnesses to e-mail you with their version of what happened.

                                          Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                          Time: Approx: 10:00 p.m.

                                          Location of Sighting: Linton, OR 9north of Portland)
                                          Number of witnesses: 2; 4.
                                          Number of objects: 1
                                          Shape of objects: Disc

                                          Full Description of event/sighting: One two evenings, 9/3 and 9/5, approx 10:00 p.m.., my partner was outside and called to me to come out and take a look in the sky. I went out, and we used inexpensive binoculars (10 X 50 WA) ... saw clearly a brilliant-strobing-lights object hovering in the sky. Clear night, many stars. It was far away, but quite visible. I framed it in my sight line with the telephone wires and a tree, and it hovered within that space for around half an hour. We are in Linton, and observed it to the north, looking across the Willamette River, but could not ascertain how far away it was. I saw it hover and shift position, tilting from horizontal to a vertical position, then rotating slowly enough to see the underside, then flatten out to horizontal again. We saw four colors of lights-- red, white, green and blue-- distinctly, but not all at the same time. They flashed and rotated around the edge-- or appeared to through the binoculars. I wondered at the time if this was one of "ours", some advanced technology being tested out here. In fact, I recall airliners in the sky taking off from the Portland Airport, and they must have seen this object, also. I thought-- surely they (the airport personnel) would have knowledge of this sort of advanced technology craft (maybe a military test craft, and the military contacted them?) if planes are just flying to and fro out there while this thing hovers...???

                                          As I stated, we saw this object two nights, in approximately the same position in the sky. On the second sighting, our two friends joined us outside to see it as well.

                                          Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                          Portland Oregon Bright Strobing Object Video

                                          Date: September 7, 2004
                                          Time: 10:20 p.m.

                                          To Brian Vike,

                                          On Tuesday 9-7-2004, I stepped outside at 10:20 pm local time in Portland OR, USA, observing a very bright strobing object in the night sky. It was located due west, about 25 degrees above the western horizon. It appeared to be glowing very brightly at first, pitched at a 45 degree angle, and much brighter/larger than any similar objects that I have seen of this type. It moved to my right and down toward the western horizon slowly as I watched it, while dimming somewhat in the process. Duration of this sighting was about 10 minutes, when the object became obscured behind some trees.

                                          Viewing conditions: There were few if any clouds, generally good viewing conditions, given the high amounts of atmospheric haze that we seem to have in recent years.

                                          The object appeared to be shedding something as if it was a byproduct of combustion. This was coming from the lower left of the object and could be seen with normal vision, as occasional spurts of varying intensity blasting perpendicular to the object's "body". This is seen as a gaseous curtain in the brighter still images (and in the one rotated with text).

                                          Quickly I seized the opportunity to set up a low power telescope with digital camera attachment on a tripod. Several pictures were taken at different exposure settings, including a short video movie. The object remained bright for the first pictures but then began to change, becoming dimmer as it came closer to the horizon, moving to my right. The setup I used provided 45x high quality optical zoom.

                                          The camera did not sit level in my setup, but was pitched at a 40 degree angle down to the right (I did not want to miss the photo opportunity by readjusting it). Because the shots were taken through a telescope without mirrors, the image is also rotated 180 degrees, so appears upside down. Only the picture with text added has been rotated and cropped 800 x 600 to correct the orientation to what I had observed. All other pictures are straight out of the camera.

                                          Attached are four pictures plus one movie,
                                          P9070346.jpg, 4 sec exp, f 3.5, iso 100, 10 x 4.5 = 45x opt. zoom
                                          P9070347.jpg, 4 sec exp, f 3.5, iso 100, 10 x 4.5 = 45x opt. zoom
                                          P9070347rota1.jpg, same as above, rotated, cropped, text added,
                                          P9070351.mov, 1.2mb file size, about 24 seconds long. The movie does not clearly show the "tail" easily seen in the other still photos.
                                          P9070354.jpg, 1/10 sec exp, f 4.0, iso 100, 10 x 4.5 = 45x opt. zoom

                                          The 4.5 power telescope and 10x zoom camera combined in tandem have a 1 degree field of view when the camera is at 10x zoom. The object shows large in these photos, filling 4.8% of the field of view (uncropped). If it was 40 miles distant from me (my guess) then the object's size would be about 180 feet long. However, I don't know how far away it actually was. If farther away it is larger, if nearer then it was smaller.

                                          The reason I think it was 40 miles away is because I think the gaseous curtain may be being released into a denser part of the upper atmosphere which still contains some oxygen. Given the 25 degrees angle above the horizon, the altitude would then be about 56,000 feet or 10.6 miles. The air density there is about 1/10th that of air at sea level, per my engineering handbook.

                                          Some questions remain. Whose technology is this, and what is the possible purpose (and substance) of placing/consuming materials in the upper atmosphere? Is this one of the reasons, minor or major, for the increased atmospheric haze that many of us see in today's skies?

                                          Thanks for looking,

                                          Thank you very much to the witness for the report, pictures and clip.

                                          Full Description of event/sighting: I was leaving my home by car with my son. We were headed west. The sun was setting and the sky was clear with a few wispy clouds. I noticed an object very bright above the horizon. About half the size of the moon. It looked like a jet with a very short jet trail behind it heading north at an odd angle toward the ground. I kept watching it as I was headed west across town on the freeway. It wasn't moving, just hovering.

                                          I pointed it out to my son. He agreed it was strange. It was brighter and more colorful than the few clouds lit by the sun set. We watched it for about 8 minutes until to was out of sight behind some trees. I wish I had pulled over to observe it at the time, but was anxious to get to my husband so he could see it. Unfortunately from where he was there was too many other obstructions in the way. When I saw the story on Rense.com this morning titled "Portland Oregon Bright Strobing Object Video " I realized it was the same object we saw!


                                          Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                          Boca Raton, Florida Disappearing And Appearing Object

                                          Date: September 9, 2004
                                          Time: 3:00 p.m.

                                          I saw this on Thursday in S. Fla at 3:00 p.m. I have a six minute video of it on a Sony digital handicam. I witnessed it with a friend. definitely not a plane as it hovered for 5 minutes in one place.

                                          Additional Information:

                                          Thanks for getting back to me Brian. Here are some more details.

                                          The object was moving slowly form my East to the West. The sky was partly cloudy that is why the images seem grey, because I tried to see it close up the clouds were behind it. The object kept disappearing and appearing and I saw it by its distinctive glow or metallic reflection in the sun. It was under where the planes usually fly. There are no military areas anywhere by me. I am close to Boca Raton about 40 miles south of Palm Beach airport and 20 north of Ft Lauderdale airport. The movement was erratic. First it moved like a plane, just a forward motion then it would reappear further down very fast. The last 4 minutes I was able to see it, had it hovering or moving ever so slightly around the clouds. It appeared orb like and stayed that way throughout. What intrigued me was the way it moved and the intense glow. I watch the skies a lot and this was highly unique. There was no sound, it was around 2 miles away (just a gestimation)maybe 10,000ft high and again had a silvery color with and intense reflection or internal glow. There were other planes flying by this thing which helped my perspective and adding to the mystery of what it could be. I am basically sharing this with you in the hopes someone else in my area saw it. I am very confident it wasn't a conventional craft, plane, rocket etc, but it is a UFO for now, because I can't identify it. That doesn't make it an ET craft either, but it was fun to watch to say the least.

                                          Thanks for listening.

                                          Full Description of event/sighting: At approx. 10:00 p.m. eastern time, we saw what we thought was a bright star. As we continued looking at it, the object changed colors, from green to red to dark orange to white as though it was spinning. The object was hovering just south or left from the big dipper, we were facing northwest. As the object was hovering it would move from left to right. After watching the object for approx. 15 minutes the object flew with speed towards northwest horizon.

                                          Additional Information:

                                          Hi Brian,

                                          On September 10th, 2004 at approx. 10pm - 10:15 I saw the object first then I called my mother and my two sons from our home, we saw an object was northwest and left from the big dipper, the night was crystal-clear. We did not see the moon. The object stood out because it was brighter than a star or planet and it flashed colors. As we looked at it through binoculars we were able to see the colors clearly. The colors were rotating from green, red, dark orange, to white. On the top of the object above the rotating light was a very bright white. The object was hovering then it moved to the left but not straight, it was in an angle, then to the right.

                                          It stood there for a few minutes then it started to move northwest direction and it looked like it was moving up in elevation the color of the object was like a yellow. As the object left to the northwest it arched downward not straight like a airplane. My older son told me it was a rounded triangle shape. We all saw the same thing. The strange thing about this was that
                                          military planes have flight patterns through here every evening or night, and when we were looking at the object the military were flying to right of the object at a northwest direction and they were flying on the left of the object going at a southeast direction. The object was much brighter, and much bigger and much higher than the military planes. When the object
                                          disappeared from the horizon, we looked up and the big dipper was still there.

                                          Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                          Full Description of event/sighting: Hi Brian. I contacted you about two months ago. I reported a bright star like object in the sky. It is rather large and hovers in one spot. When its hovering it is really bright. When it moves it moves up, down, right, and left the light becomes very dull. There appears to be a red light shining from the center of the light. When I zoom in with my camera it looks as though there are many different colors. This is the exact same object that my mother and I saw the last time. Only this time below the large object there was a smaller object. I couldn't make out what it was doing there. It seemed to be hovering right below the larger one. This object must be rather far away because whenever I zoom in on it with my camera it looks like a little dot. Even though it doesn't look far away at all when I look into the sky.

                                          But when I zoom into the photo what I see is bizarre. I don't understand why my photos never come out the way the object appears. They come out in different shapes and colors. Its as if whenever the object is moving it takes the form of a sphere and when its hovering it appears oval. We were able to view it from my backyard for about an hour and then it had moved too far south, out of my view from the backyard. I was to tired to follow it to the front yard. These new photos that I have resemble the ones I sent you before only the shape is more ovalish. Well, thanks for reading this I appreciate. If you want me to send you the photos please let me know.

                                          Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                          Brisbane, Australia Light Hovers Then Splits In Two

                                          Date: September 12, 2004
                                          Time: 6:00 p.m.

                                          Hello Brian

                                          You are the first one I have shared this with.

                                          I live in the northern suburbs of Brisbane in Queensland, Australia. On Saturday night (Sept. 11) at about 1830 I was walking my dogs on the sports ground near my house where I walk every night. I live at a high elevation and have 270 degree views. As I was about half way around the ground, I was looking north toward an especially bright star, wondering what planet it was. As I was looking, what seemed to be another, smaller star, the same size and brightness as most of the others, started moving fast in a straight line. It looked just like a moving (NOT shooting) star (I walk every night and see plenty of shooting stars). I was looking due north, and it appeared to be moving toward the east - toward the Pacific Ocean. I am positive of the direction because I also walk there in the morning and I know where the sun rises. It was too high and too fast to be a plane. I have worked at airports for 16 years and travelled a lot so I know what I'm talking about. After about 3 seconds the object abruptly stopped, stayed still momentarily, split into two, and disappeared. I have not seen anything like it since.

                                          Yours faithfully,

                                          Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                            Chicoutimi, Quebec White Object

                                            Date: December 24, 1978 or 1979
                                            Time: Late evening ?

                                            In the mid 70's in Chicoutimi, Qc, Canada. It was Dec 24 (not sure of the year), a white object that filled about half the sky flew by in about 1 second (real fast). A few seconds later, someone in the street mentioned that it was a comet. This object was obviously very close and very large. I don't know if it was a UFO but wanted to share it with you.

                                            Additional Information:

                                            It was about 10 miles from the Canadian Air Force Base of Bagotville (Fighter Squadron). Don't know what shape it was as it filled most of the sky and went by real fast. It was white and directly above. It had to be very large. There was light snow and it was late night. 1978 or 1979.

                                            Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                            Date: May 14, 2004
                                            Time: 5:00 - 6:00 p.m.

                                            Number of witnesses: 1
                                            Number of objects: 1
                                            Shape of objects: Round ball of light.

                                            Full Description of event/sighting: I was looking at clouds and enjoying the day when I saw a small light in the sky. It was motionless as clouds were passing by. I watched for about 5 minutes to see if it was going to move. It did not so I hurried inside to get my camera. I got back outside and filmed the object ( digital video camera) for about 2 minutes but I'm not very steady. I went inside very quickly to get tripod but when I got outside the object was gone! Nothing. That's why I know it was a UFO. Sun was in the western sky and had about 2 hours before sunset. I'm an avid skywatcher so I take confidence in knowing what's in the sky. This was not a star, plane, bird or whatever else.

                                            Anyways, best wishes and I could send a video if you wish.

                                            Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                            Phoenix, Arizona Silver Disc

                                            Hey Brian! How are you?

                                            I recorded this object on July 31st, 2004 during the day and I found it to be very interesting. I must have forgot to send it to you for some reason but here it is.

                                            I remember on this day it was partly cloudy, 109 degrees, and no winds. I was in downtown Phoenix on the roof of my parking garage recording another object when this metallic looking disc-like object came from the West heading Southeast very quickly.

                                            At first I thought it was a bird because it was tumbling along but once I saw light reflect off of it I knew it was something other than a plane or bird. It was only a few thousand feet high and probably going 200-300mph. It was about 20-30 ft in diameter and is definitely saucer shaped.

                                            I taped it for a minute and a half before I lost sight of it. At the time I had no idea what it was but upon further reviews of the tape in slow motion and pausing it frame by frame I saw that I captured something unique. The object was the classic disc shape.

                                            I didn't send the tape to anyone to analyze yet so if you want to send it to someone for further analysis I would love to hear what they think.

                                            Thank you.

                                            Thank you to the gentleman for all of the clips and report.

                                            Scarborough, Ontario Daytime White Light

                                            Date: September 8, 2004
                                            Time: 12:00 p.m.

                                            On September 8, 2004, just after 12:00 p.m. in Scarborough, Ontario. Looking west you can still see the moon.When you look at 7 to 8 o'clock down away from the moon you see a dot of light. Observed with binoculars you see a small pea shape of white light. The distance I would guess would be as high as even orbit. Another possible sighting and as always I grabbed 4 witnesses that also confirmed they could see it with the naked eye also and asked, what is it? The condition of the sky was rich blue (no overcast). I personally watched the object on and off for 2 hrs. In observation, it moved with the moon in the same range of distance apart. With the various sightings one sees, the first thing that comes to mind is it natural? In other words, could this have been Mars or any other planets seen with the naked eye in the middle of the day????

                                            I would very much appreciate any feedback on this by you or any astronomer. Reason being is also I've seen this type of sighting in eastern Ontario in Mid July, 2004 at 1:15 -3:00 p.m. but at a more westerly direction along in Aug.2004 from Oshawa at approx.12-1:00 p.m. in looking westerly at 12:00 o'clock above. Different dates, different westerly sky positions, observed in different locations of observation and in all these type of sightings one dot a white light. Again I wonder, is this in fact just a planet or something else? Take Care.

                                            Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                            Date: September 12, 2004
                                            Time: 10:15 p.m.

                                            I'm from Kelowna, B.C. and here is my story. On Sunday night (Sep 12, 2004) at about 10:15 p.m. my parents went to go for a walk and when they went outside my dad noticed an odd light in the western sky, he called me out to see it and we stood there for about 20 minutes watching it. It hovered up and down a little bit and was flashing red and blue. It honestly looked like a police car way off in the distance except way up in the sky. After watching it for a bit a second light exactly the same started moving north from it. It looked like it came out of the first light. When it was moving it disappeared for a few seconds then reappeared as if it was going behind clouds, but there were no clouds in the sky because there were stars all around. Then suddenly after about 7 seconds it just disappeared all together. When my dad came back from his walk at about 11:00 p.m. he said that the light was gone.

                                            Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                            Date: September 15, 2004
                                            Time: 12:45 a.m.

                                            Location of Sighting: San Jose/Los Gatos Border from foothills towards south San Jose.

                                            Hello,

                                            About 30 minutes ago I was letting the cat out and decided to go out front of the house for some fresh air. I was standing in the front yard scanning the sky as just a moment earlier I saw a shooting star. As I was looking up towards the foothills I saw a small orange/red light in the sky coming in my direction. At first I thought It might be the police helicopter as I see it quite often this time of night. As it got closer I noticed that it wasn't a helicopter at all. I thought it might be a plane. But as it approached there was no sound and no blinking lights what so ever. I kept an eye on it as it moved very smoothly and from where I was standing it disappeared behind some trees briefly and as it emerged from behind the trees I noticed that it slowed down some...almost to a standstill and then what looked like some jerking motion. And then it suddenly disappeared.
                                            I continued to scan the sky for a good ten minutes in the general area that it disappeared into and saw absolutely NOTHING thereafter.

                                            Note: The sky was and still is completely clear of clouds or any mist/fog.


                                            Thanks.

                                            Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                            Hi Brian

                                            I was out taking a few pictures of the sky and clouds when I noticed this thing going northwest. It was probably going about 3 or 4 hundred miles an hour, not too fast, but I didn't have my camcorder with me. Just got this one picture with my Kodak camera. I thought it was a black triangle at first but it looks like it's got a straight backside and rounded on the front sides kind of like a half moon, what you think? Anyways I'm sending you a copy of the main picture and some enlargements, (you might want to make your own) if you decide to post this. It was partly cloudy today with a slight breeze, maybe 10mph. I saw one jet afterwards with a contrail heading southeast. The picture was taken at 3:16 p.m. today 09-15-04. Need more info, let me know...Later my friend.

                                            Thank you to the witness for the report and pictures.

                                            Charlotte, North Carolina Rectangle With Reflecting Panels

                                            Date: September 15, 2004
                                            Time: 5:05 p.m.

                                            Location of Sighting: North Charlotte around UNCC campus.
                                            Number of witnesses: 1
                                            Number of objects: 1
                                            Shape of objects: Rectangle

                                            Full Description of event/sighting: I was driving north on I-85 approaching the UNC Charlotte campus. Traffic was heavy during the 5 o'clock rush hour. I was going about 15 mph. Suddenly in the sky ahead of me about 1/2 mile away appeared a large gray rectangle. I estimate it's length as long as a football field. It was gray with panels that were somewhat reflective. It floated motionless and then drifted to the right. I lost sight of it behind the tree line as I drove along. I had time to remove my sunglasses so I watched it for approximately 10 seconds.

                                            As I drove along toward the campus, there were several auto accidents. I can't explain what I saw.

                                            Additional Information:

                                            Hi Brian,

                                            In response to your questions:

                                            Weather conditions: predominately cloudy, some sun mixed, big puffy gray and white clouds

                                            UFO location: Northeast Mecklenburg county, object was about 1/2 mile away from me, about 1,000 feet up

                                            UFO movement: object hovered maintaining altitude, no up or down movement, then moved east very slowly. I lost sight of it as I drove along and it disappeared behind tree line. When I topped a hill which provides a great vista view, it was not there.

                                            Area of sighting: University of North Carolina Charlotte area, approximately 15 miles northeast of downtown Charlotte

                                            Aircraft in vicinity: None. Charlotte airport is about 15-18 miles southwest, Concord airport about 8-10 miles northeast

                                            I contacted: UNCC campus police - they had no reports. Fox News (local news) - no reports. Mecklenburg county police - no reports.

                                            UFO description: No visible lights. No fins or wings. Panels were dark gray and slightly reflective and appeared to be encased with metal. Resembled panels of skyscrapers. (If I had to compare this object to something, I would say it looked like a skyscraper floating horizontally.)

                                            Brian, this is not the first time I have witnessed objects I can't explain. Since June 2003, I've seen 4 objects (including this one) which in my opinion are not man-made. If they are man-made, we sure as hell need to bring this technology to bear in the war in Iraq. I appreciate your interest and will continue to watch and report anything I see. Which leads me to my biggest question - why am I seeing these things? I'm a rational college educated woman and although I have often exclaimed that I would love to see a UFO, I am astounded that it's happening.

                                            Sincerely,

                                            Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                            Number of witnesses: 2
                                            Number of objects: 1
                                            Shape of objects: Round, very bright light.

                                            Full Description of event/sighting: It was dusk out as my boyfriend and I were heading out to the car, and he looked up in the sky and noticed a very bright white object in the sky line. It did not move, but continued to shine bright in the sky line. We do not live far from the store so we rushed home to look at it through the binoculars. We noticed it was changing color ever so lightly, into a slight pink color, then the next thing the object was totally gone. I was wondering if anyone else saw this?

                                            Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                            I received a call from a friend at 6:30 a.m. today regarding something in the sky. He told me to look up to the North about 1 o'clock and I will see something special. I went outside with him still on the phone and couldn't believe my eyes. I saw this weird looking balloon-like object hovering right by my house. I started to get my camera and tripod but as I was doing this
                                            my friend told me to not get so excited, it is only a weather balloon. He then told me to turn to one of the local news channels because they were talking about it and showing it on T.V.. Many people are calling in reporting this balloon since 5:45 a.m. thinking it's a UFO.

                                            I was disappointed to say the least but really curious because the object was barely moving. I am writing this story to you now an hour later and it may have moved an inch. The news channels are reporting that this object came from New Mexico from an air force base and it's a new type of weather balloon. The dimensions are 300ft.tall and floating around 120,000ft.!

                                            Well I guess it's not the mother ship but I just don't understand how I can focus in on something so high and get all the detail on this balloon. I will be reporting back on this to you when more information is available, probably tomorrow.

                                            Thank you to the witness for the report, footage and pictures of the weather balloon.

                                            Thank you to the gentleman for all of the clips and report.

                                              Ghost In Our House

                                              We had a ghost in our house when I was young; he normally took the form of a man from the 30's era or so, he had a pin-striped suit and a straw hat. My brother saw him more frequently than anyone else (my older brother) though my mom and dad both admitted to seeing him or having strange things happen around the house. We weren't the only home in this small town that saw him. Some of our neighbors (especially the older folks) admitted to seeing him either in the neighborhood or in their homes. He seemed harmless. They called him the Traveling Man cause it was generally believed that he was the ghost of a traveling salesman. My oldest brother (I am the youngest of 3) never really told me about an strange experiences though, just the middle brother and my parents. My daughter hasn't told me about any strange
                                              things happening. She just seems to have had the normal childhood fears of the dark, etc.

                                              Thank you to the person for the report.

                                              -----------------------

                                              San Antonio, Texas Alien Encounter ?

                                              Message: My name is (removed), I live in San Antonio, TX, and I have a couple of things to report. It is rather strange cause I really wasn't intending to make a report I was just curious about your site. However, I now feel compelled to report these strange happenings especially since I have only just read a bunch of stories and seen photos of 'scoop' marks... And I have an unexplained scar on my foot.

                                              Anyway, to get to it: Years ago while a child in a small South Texas town, I somehow obtained an A-shaped (or triangle-shaped) scar on the top of my right foot (near the ankle). I remember impressions and 'feelings' more than any actual event concerning the scar. I remember asking my mother about it once and she said it must be a birthmark but it doesn't look like any birthmark I have ever seen... I even remember arguing with her (I was probably younger than 8 or so) about it saying that the 'ant' did it. When I think back, I have a feeling or impression of a large "ant" face. A gray perhaps?

                                              At any rate, it is an upside down "A" shape that is raised like a scar. The reason I say "A" as opposed to "triangle" is that the center is a hollow "triangle" (so a raised triangle surrounding a hollow triangle). I have had it for as long as I can remember but to this day it is somewhat uncomfortable if I press on it. I am wondering if maybe I was studied and "marked" in some way like you here about from time to time.

                                              Throughout my childhood I was near terrified of the dark. I guess that isn't strange but I used to have vivid dreams and even see "ghosts" or something in the darkness of the room. As I grew older I began to experience night terrors, those situations where you wake up but you can't come to full consciousness and there is a terrible weight on your chest and a feeling of impending doom or death (and it is an absolute certainty that something is approaching- something is JUST outside the door).

                                              After one particular night terror, I woke fully (and trembling) and started back to bed. Once there I had a CLEAR memory of two large but squat creatures dressed in dark clothing walking into my room followed by a tall gray. I think I dreamt it while I was in and out of my night terror, I don't know.

                                              Now on to the sighting. I don't recall a good deal of it. For some reason my whole memory of it is fuzzy. I drove north on Interstate 10 from San Antonio, turned at Comfort, TX., on my way via back roads to my parent's place in Centerpoint, TX. My 3 year old daughter was with me. I am not sure what time of the year it was (which to me is one of the strangest things about this sighting- I put it out of my mind fairly quickly after experiencing it).

                                              Anyway, I do remember that it was late afternoon/early evening. The sun hadn't quite started going down yet. They sky was really blue and their were few clouds (once again, certain things I DO remember). As we drove along behind a lady in a car (my daughter in the front seat of my truck) I suddenly saw sparks in the sky through my windshield. At the same time, the lady in front of my suddenly slammed on her brakes and pulled over. I pulled over as well (behind her) and was about to get out and ask her what was wrong when I saw her pointing up into the sky (we were headed roughly west and she was pointing up and slightly to the northwest).

                                              Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                              Toronto, Ontario Cylindrical Objects

                                              Date: June 26, 2004
                                              Time: 1:45 p.m.

                                              Location of Sighting: Vicinity of Markham Road and Lawrence Ave.
                                              Number of witnesses: 2
                                              Number of objects: 2
                                              Shape of objects: Cylindrical


                                              Full Description of event/sighting: Relaxing in my in-laws backyard on a lawn chair watching my three children play, I leaned back and gazed up at a very clear blue sky adorned with clusters of white clouds. I noticed a large off-white cylinder-type shape steadily moving towards the east at a constant rate of velocity. Periodically it would fly through grouped clouds and then re-emerge. I watched it until it vanished off in the distance some 90 or so seconds later. Unlike commercial aircraft, this object emitted no sound, exhaust or vapor trail. Based on my estimation of its altitude it appeared to be five to 6 times the length and width of a typical 747.

                                              Approximately 30 minutes later, my brother in-law pointed out a small but distinct silver-grey disk-like object hovering towards the south-east. This second object was not moving in any direction, nor was it shrouded in cloud. The second sighting lasted approximately 2 minutes and merely vanished !

                                              Over the years I have looked up and seen hundreds if not thousands of conventional aircraft. What I saw on that clear June day was nothing short of compelling. These two sightings were not conventional aircraft.

                                              Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                              Kaufman County, Texas Brilliant High Flyer (Video/Pictures)

                                              Date: September 16, 2004
                                              Time: Approx: 6:00 p.m.

                                              I caught another High Flyer yesterday, (day light) I've been after him for about two weeks now. Where I usually set up just about the same time I'll look up and there he is. I got about 2 or 3 seconds of him about six days ago and he went behind a tree and I lost him. I saw him sooner yesterday and got 20 or 30 seconds before he went behind the tree.

                                              Additional Information:

                                              I've been trying to capture this object I've been seeing for about two weeks now. I call it the High Flyer because it's probably six or more miles up. I haven't heard a noise from it, but have seen it luckily about three times. It comes over close to the same time (about 6:00pm) or at least that's when I've been seeing it. On 09-10-04,I captured about 5 or 6 seconds of it, and on 09-16-04, I finally got about 20 or 30 seconds of it. I guess because of all the hurricanes, we've been having mostly clear days here, which is very unusual for here. Anyway this thing comes from the northeast going southwest every time I've seen it. With the naked eye it looks like a point of light in the blue sky. It moves pretty fast, I'd guess about 5 or 6 hundred miles per hour. It doesn't appear to have wings that I can see. I'm sending you a clip of it to see what you think

                                              Thank you to the witness for the report, pictures and video footage.

                                              Date: September 17, 2004
                                              Time: Between 7:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.

                                              Hi Brian

                                              This is another one I caught between 7:30 and 8:00 p.m. on 09-17-04. I was taping this small plane when I noticed this orb either was coming down or going west, I really couldn't tell. This was very unusual to capture a white orb this late in the evening that was moving. It was mostly clear this evening with lots of planes and things in the sky, a very good day for skywatching here. I'm sending you a clip of it for your analysis.

                                              Thank you to the witness for the report, pictures and video footage.

                                              Bettles, Alaska Humming Form UFO


                                              Date: September 17, 2004
                                              Time: 2:30 a.m.

                                              Witness' narrative:

                                              "I live in a remote town in northern Alaska. After having dinner at a friend I went home. My place is located about two mile south of town. There is a airport located there and a rotating beacon for the airport. I have lived here for nearly thirty years. Being located away from town it is extremely quite with very little noise. I went to sleep around 11:00PM. I was awaken by a humming sound that was not real loud, almost like a fluorescent lamp with a bad ballast. I thought it was my inverted down
                                              stairs and got up to see if something was wrong. As I was laying in bed I could see the light from the airport beacon flashing in the north window. I sat up and noticed red and white lights flashing on the trees thru the east window. I thought it might be some of the locals stuck in my driveway and the red and white lights were from the rear of the vehicle. I then got
                                              out of bed to look out the window facing my driveway.

                                              I never even looked down as I immediately seen the source of the lights. Just above the tree top was an object just hanging there not moving. My best estimate it was about 20 to 30 feet across and about 6 to 8 feet thick. It was more or less disk shaped from what I could tell. The upper part of the object was dark while the bottom had red and white lights that flashed in no apparent pattern but random. I stepped back from the window and grabbed the phone to attempt to call the local weather service as they were staffed 24 hours a day. I was able to get someone and told them to look towards my house
                                              and see if they could see what I was seeing. Due to the trees in his area he was not able to see my house. I kept thinking to myself that this can't be happening, this is not real. After maybe a minute on the phone I was becoming desperate to get someone to see this and not just me.

                                              I then contacted another person I thought might be able to see my place. Again due to the trees surrounding his place he could not see my place. By now I had become very disturbed or a better word I was scared. I stood in the middle of the room not know what to do. It must have been two minutes by now and the object began to move toward the house. As it passed above the house it again stopped. It seemed to just stay there for a long time then suddenly there was an extremely bright white light that scanned the entire yard and house three or four times. It stopped and didn't move for a few seconds and then started moving to the south slowly. I didn't move till I could no longer see any lights outside. I then informed the other party that if he did not hear from me in two minutes to come looking. I then dressed grabbed a firearm and flashlight and went down stairs. I went outside looking for it but it was gone. I then quickly drove to town and stayed at the weather station till morning light."

                                              Investigator's note:

                                              The object's size, as judged by the witnesses from its movement over nearby trees, was 20-30 feet by 6-8 feet, and was within 50 feet of the witness. It was disc-shaped, dark on top and illuminated on the bottom. The witness was contacted on September 20, 2004, and was in good spirits but still shaken by the event. "I just keep thinking It couldn't have been real. Things like this don't exist.'"

                                              Thank you to Chris Rutkowski for this report.

                                              Denver, Colorado Numerous Objects

                                              Date: September 17, 2004
                                              Time: 4:30 p.m.

                                              About 4:30 PM yesterday (17th) I needed a break from the computer and went outside. I noticed a contrail to the West, waited a bit to see if it would turn into a chemtrail. At this time it was about 6 inches long. It was high and I couldn't really make out the plane, as the sun was nearby. All of the sudden the contrail went "poof" and disappeared. I thought the plane had too, but as I watched the plane did appear and fly high overhead. It was white and had a military look about it, no contrail. As I watched it pass nearly overhead, I all of a sudden noticed something round and shiny approaching closely from the North. It was at about the height that planes are taking off from nearby Denver International Airport as they go over my house. This ball seemed to turning over and over, I am not sure if it was a ball or a disk. As it rolled around it would flash light from the western sun. it passed directly over head and then one at a time 2 more appeared. The 3 of them appeared to be playing with each other, changing directions many times. I was entertained for about 5 minutes. They could have be morphing, but I think they were just rolling about. That is why I am not sure of the exact shape. But it was delightful to watch.

                                              Thank you to the witness for the report.

                                              Chandler, Arizona Weather Balloon Spotted

                                              Date: September 17, 2004
                                              Time: 9:00 a.m.

                                              Brian, I work for (removed) at their Chandler, AZ facility. One of the engineers I work with spotted the weather balloon at sunrise when it took on an eerie glow. I was on my way back from my morning break at about 9:00 a.m., when he pointed the balloon out to me. We looked at it for a few minutes and went on to our regular duties when I had an idea. I called the engineer to ask if he could get a hold of the digital camera we use to document equipment changes and set ups when he told me that he had found out it was a weather balloon launched by ASU! Your story states that it was launched from New Mexico. Seems like there was a lot of confusion at the time. Incidentally, I heard on the news last night that a hurricane was moving into the Baja area and were are expecting rain here today and Sunday. I wonder if the "calm before the storm" contributed to the balloons lack of movement. Thanks for the story and photos.
                                              Thank you to the person for the report.

                                              Oshawa, Ontario Round Circle Of Light

                                              Date: September 20, 2004
                                              Time: 10:30 to 10:45 p.m.

                                              Location of Sighting: In Oshawa at the lake park.
                                              Number of witnesses: 2
                                              Number of objects: 1
                                              Shape of objects: round circle of light centre was blue sky, reminded me of what a solar eclipse looks like at its peak with the outer ring of light.

                                              Full Description of event/sighting: My mother and I were watching a small plane go by and head back north to the airport. While we were looking up but turned to look south east we saw this circle of light, blue sky in the centre. We took pictures and watched with binoculars. It was quite far but with the binoculars the circle was quite bright, reminding me of a solar eclipse. We watched for close to 15 minutes as it moved slowly across the sky to the east and then disappeared. There was a trail of exhaust from the small plane. The circle was near the exhaust but didn't lose its shape like the exhaust. I have four pictures with the circle. It may be nothing but I'm curious as to what it was.

                                              Thank you to the witness for the report.
