      SUBJECT : GRAAFF-REINET SIGHTING - VIDEO FOOTAGE

      CASE REFERENCE : 01JLGR27128

      PLEASE NOTE : THIS NEWS RELEASE MAY ONLY BE QUOTED FROM IF PROPER
      REFERENCE IS MADE AS TO IT'S SOURCE , IE: ECUFOR , AND THAT THE
      CONTENTS OF SUCH QUOTES IS BOTH ACCURATE AND IN CONTEXT .

      ECUFOR has completed its preliminary investigation during this past
      week of the Graaff-Reinet sighting during which video footage was made
      of alledged UFOs . Testimonies of primary witnesses have been
      obtained. No additional witnesses have come forward during the past
      week . Basic details of the sighting are as follows :

      On the 27th December 1998 at about 3pm , the Laubscher family observed
      between 8 to 10 objects moving rapidly in a Northernly direction over
      Graaf-Reinet , a small town situated in the well known Karroo and some
      260km NNW of Port Elizabeth . Mr Laubscher managed to capture on video
      a few minutes of this incident . According to the witness desciptions
      and supported to a certain extent by the video footage , the objects
      appeared somewhat roundish triangular and seemed to move in a group .
      Occasionally one or two would stop and the others would circle around
      them and then they would go forward again . This motion repeated
      itself a few times . While moving the objects were shinny gold in
      colour but when stationary appeared to switch to red and then to blue.
      The size of these objects was judged to be roughly 4 to 5 times that
      of a boeing at the same altitude . The group had been in view for a
      few seconds when another much larger object travelling at very high
      speed in the same flight path proceeded in a northernly direction
      through and past the group . The larger object appeared gold in colour
      and was basically spherical , travelled at a constant speed and did
      not change colour . Its size was estimated to be roughly 8 times that
      of a boeing at the same altitude . The group of smaller objects then
      followed the larger sphere as they all disappeared behind some high
      cloud nearer the horizon . According to the video footage these clouds
      appear to be at an altitude of roughly 25000 to 30000 feet . There was
      no visible residue or jet stream and no noise .

      The video footage has been examined and upon frame by frame viewing
      does indicate the presense of at least three objects simultaniously .
      Some of the zooming is out of focus but there is substantial " good "
      footage and this will be further examined using sophisticated
      digitizing and colour enhancement technics both locally and overseas .
      Investigations into the case will continue and once the video analysis
      results are obtained , a further News Release will be issued .

      THIS NEWS RELEASE MAY ONLY BE QUOTED FROM IF PROPER REFERENCE IS MADE
      AS TO ITS SOURCE , IE: ECUFOR AND THAT THE CONTENTS OF SUCH QUOTES IS
      BOTH ACCURATE AND IN CONTEXT .
