      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.

      Phoenix, Arizona White Orb

      Date: August 3, 2004
      Time: 7:00 p.m.

      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.

        HBCC UFO Research Recently Reported Sightings



        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.

        Retired U.S. Air Force Security Serviceman Sees Objects.

        Date: 1996

        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
        Message 3 of 21 , Aug 16, 2004
          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.

          Phoenix, Arizona Trio Of Lights

          Date: August 11, 2004
          Time: 4:00 p.m.

          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.

          Hitchcock, Texas Orb Sighting

          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.

          South Lanarkshire, Scotland

          Date: August 14, 2004
          Time: 8:45 p.m.

          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.

          Time: 6:15 p.m.

          Message:

          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.

            HBCC UFO Research Recently Reported Sightings



            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.

            Livermore California Sighting - Approx: 50 Witnesses

            Date: 1991
            Time: 8:45 p.m.

            Number of witnesses: 50
            Number of objects: 1
            Shape of objects: Bell shaped.

            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.

            Wardsville, Ontario Light

            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.

            Airport Mesa, West Sedona, Arizona Orb

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

            Number of witnesses: 1
            Number of objects: 2
            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.

              North East Lincs, England Sphere

              Date: October 1994
              Time: Approx: 6:00 p.m.

              Location of Sighting: Over fords farm reading England.
              Number of witnesses: 1
              Number of objects: 1
              Shape of objects: Sphere

              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.

              ------------------------

              Manville, Alberta Giant Orange Ball Of Light

              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.

              ----------------------------

              Parksville, B.C. Strange Cloud

              Date: August 29, 2004
              Time: 8:00 p.m.

              Number of witnesses: 5
              Number of objects: 1
              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.

                Alexandria, Virginia Unusual Object

                Date: May 1991 ?
                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.

                West Hill, Ontario Rusty-Red Colored Circle Of Light

                Date: September 1, 2004
                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:

                  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.

                  Kaufman, Texas Dark Object Suddenly Changes Directions

                  Date: January 10, 2004
                  Time: Daylight sighting

                  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.

                  Spallumcheem Valley B.C. Small Orb

                  Date: August 15, 2004
                  Time: 5:30 p.m.

                  Number of witnesses: 1
                  Number of objects: 1
                  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.

                  Kaufman, Texas Another Large Orb Close To Jet Airliner

                  Date: August 31, 2004
                  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.

                  Additional Information:

                  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.

                  Kaufman County Object Filmed Around Chemtrail/Contrail

                  Date: September 6, 2004
                  Time: Approx: 6:30 p.m.

                  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.

                    Date: August 28, 2004
                    Time: 12:39 p.m.

                    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.

                    Escondido, California Red And Green flashing Lights

                    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.

                      Newsletter Release: September 12, 2004



                      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.

                      Additional Information:

                      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.

                      Mr. Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research Home

                      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.
                      http://www.spaceflightnow.com/atlas/ac167/040824track.html

                      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:

                      Elgin, New Brunswick Lights Over Local Mountain

                      Date: September 8, 2004
                      Time: Approx: 1:30 a.m.

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

                      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.

                      Hi Brian

                      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

                      Date: September 11, 2004
                      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

                      Date: September 11, 2004
                      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.

                      Hi Brian

                      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.

                        Linton, Oregon Brilliant Strobing Lights

                        Date: September 3/5, 2004
                        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,

                        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,

                        Date: September 7, 2004

                        Number of objects: 1
                        Shape of objects: Long narrow triangle.

                        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!

                        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.

                        Mount Cobb, Pennsylvania Sighting

                        Date: September 10, 2004
                        Time: 10:00 p.m.

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

                        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.

                        Peoria, Arizona Oval, Sphere

                        Date: September 12, 2004
                        Time: 3:00 a.m.

                        Number of objects: 1
                        Shape of objects: Oval, Sphere


                        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.

                          Fort Collins Colorado Round Ball Of Light.

                          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.

                          Kelowna, B.C. Lights

                          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.

                          San Jose, California Small Orange/Red Light In The Sky

                          Date: September 15, 2004
                          Time: 12:45 a.m.

                          Location of Sighting: San Jose/Los Gatos Border from foothills towards south San Jose.

                          Number of objects: 1
                          Shape of objects: Round bright orange/red.

                          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.

                          Alburque, New Mexico Round Very Bright Light

                          Date: September 16, 2004
                          Time: 6:45 p.m.

                          Location of Sighting: Northern New Mexico, Smiths parking lot.
                          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.

                          Phoenix, Arizona Weather Balloon Being Reported To The Media

                          Date: September 17, 2004
                          Time: 7:03 a.m.

                          Hey Brian How Are You?

                          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.

                            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.
