UFOs are observed in space and over New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington
DC, Georgia, Indiana, Illinois, Arizona abduction, Nevada, California, and England.
VISITORS FROM SPACE CAUSE HUGE EXPLOSION
Researcher Joe Stefula reports that on April 23, US orbiting satellites detected a
blinding flash of light several hundred miles southwest of Los Angeles over the
Pacific Ocean. Shock waves were picked up as far away as South America. In an
abrupt news release on May 25, the Air Force's Technical Applications Center, at
Patrick Air Force Base in Florida, said the flash was "non-nuclear" and consistent
with observed meteor explosions. Most likely a speeding meteoroid from outer space
had crashed into the Earth's atmosphere causing an intense fireball. Bright flashes
were detected for more than two seconds. Dr. Douglas O. ReVelle, a federal scientist
who helps run the military detectors claimed this was the third largest intruder
since global satellite observations started a quarter century ago. The explosion in
our atmosphere had nearly the force of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Ground
based sensors at Los Alamos and other bases detected the sounds of the blast. !
The rocky meteors are anywhere from a few feet to about 80 feet wide. They vanish
in massive explosions high in our atmosphere. The fireballs are seldom seen because
they usually occur over the sea or uninhabited areas.
Editor's Note: Our satellites regularly detect incoming objects from space that
strike our Earth's atmosphere. These are generally referred to as uncorrelated
targets indicating they are not in the computer database of known space objects.
Satellites regularly pick up objects both entering and leaving our atmosphere. Some
scientists speculate they may not all be meteors and some might represent UFOs.
A NEW US SPACE FORCE
Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld has proposed major changes that sharply
increase the importance of outer space in strategic planning. The proposal will be
the first step toward making space a focus of Department of Defense spending for the
development of weapon systems for outer space that include antiballistic missile
defenses, anti satellite weapons and airborne laser offensive weapons. Mr. Rumsfeld
will call for the establishment of a new Pentagon post for a four-star Air Force
general to serve as an advocate for what could become a new Space Force. He
indicated he would ask for billions of dollars of new spending.
EDITORS NOTE - The Soviet space program is in disarray and needs money from tourists
to keep operating. Although China is attempting to put a man in space they are far
behind. The logical question is who will this new Space Force fight? Why are we
preparing for battles in space? The videos taken from our Space Shuttle flights
regularly show UFOs passing in the distance. Is part of our Space Force already in
orbit, or are we preparing for battle against aliens? If we are preparing for a
fight with the taxpayer's money, isn't it reasonable to ask who might be our enemy?
NASA PILOT JOSEPH A. WALKER ON UFOs
On May 11, 1962, NASA pilot Joseph Walker said that one of his tasks was to detect
UFOs during his X-15 flights. He had filmed five or six UFOs during his record
breaking fifty-mile-high flight in April 1962. It was the second time he had filmed
UFOs in flight. During a lecture at the Second National Conference on the Peaceful
Uses of Space Research in Seattle, Washington he said: I don't feel like speculating
about them. All I know is what appeared on the film, which was developed after the
flight. To date none of those films has been released to the public for viewing.
DISCLOSURE PROJECT UPDATE -- I was one of twenty former military and government
employees who spoke at one of the largest press briefings ever on May 9, 2001, at the
National Press Club in Washington DC. Organized by Dr. Stephen Greer the speakers
told the press that UFOs and aliens exist and have bases on the Moon and here on
Earth. Several officers briefed how UFOs shut down our Minuteman missiles and over
flew nuclear weapons sites. Details were given concerning UFO crashes, near misses,
and possible offensive action by UFOs. Collectively these people know more about
UFOs than any speakers I have ever heard, anytime and anywhere. They spoke for a few
minutes each, but most have amazing detailed knowledge of our alien visitors.
Probably the biggest story of millennium was handed to the news media and they appear
afraid or were prevented from publishing the story. The question is why did this
amazing story hardly reach the American public? Several hundred plus reporte!
rs did not report the UFO news, but ran with the release of FBI documents story
concerning Timothy McVeigh. Through Connectlive.com the press conference reached
some 250,000 people, but was not generally carried in the National News reports. I
received an e-mail from a Congressional staffer who encouraged us all to write, fax,
and call your congressmen asking for Congressional Hearings.
NEW YORK DISCS PASS OVER TWICE
BROOKLYN -- On April 28, 2001, a sky watcher who lives near LaGuardia Airport, was
watching the landing of a commercial flight at around 1:00 PM in the afternoon, when
he noticed two strange objects come into view. They were at a very high altitude
compared to the commercial jet flights. Both unknown objects were white in color and
oval shaped. They were traveling east at a very rapid speed and flew out of sight
within ten seconds or less. The witness says, "The unusual part of this sighting is
that several hours later about 4:00 PM, I was on my roof with binoculars watching, to
my astonishment the exact same two objects came into my view again." This was
something that in all my years of sky watching I have never experienced. Both
sightings were identical as far as color and shape, but on the second sighting the
objects were traveling south. During the second over flight they flew side-by-side
and steady. Using my binoculars I can positively say they were oval with no!
wings what so ever. These objects did not have wings, were not birds or balloons.

NEW JERSEY CYLINDER OVERTAKES JETS
MILFORD -- I sat down on deck behind our house on May 1, 2001, and saw a military
plane flying at about 50,000 feet heading south at 4:45 PM at high speed. I see them
often. This time something approached the plane from behind and overtook it at an
amazing speed. I thought it was the space shuttle because I knew it was going to
land that day. There was no exhaust flume, so I assumed that it was our shuttle. I
called my wife outside to look. She did so and was amazed at the speed. It left our
view seconds later so I went inside and got online with the NASA website. They
indicated the shuttle had touched down at 9:10 this morning. So what was that we
MATAWAN -- Jacqueline Williams writes that a few years ago, I witnessed a large
triangular object flying over us while we sitting in my Jacuzzi spa. The Flying
Triangle was as big as a football field and had 3 lights on either side and a light
in the middle. As it flew silently over us, the lights and the pump on the Jacuzzi
spa suddenly turned off. I told many people about this experience and after much
negativity, I decided to keep it to myself. Recently I have had to privilege to have
custody of a 16-year-old boy whose mother is very ill. Last week, (May 20?) he came
running into the house, out of breath. He said he'd been sitting on the Jacuzzi lid
looking at the stars, when he saw a huge triangular shaped object fly overhead. He
said it was enormous in size and had 3 lights on each side and one large one in the
middle. He said it was silent. Then two more came toward it, and they all shot off
into the night sky. He drew a picture of the craft that was exactly li!
ke the one the three of us had seen. We told him our story and he slept with the
lights on that night. Now we both go outside at night and glance at the sky hoping
to have another opportunity to see those objects again. Thanks to Jacqueline
GREENVILLE -- On May 3, 2001, the witness observed a shiny, silver object in the sky
moving east. He reports, "I was driving north at 1:43 PM, in my 24 square mile
region of patrol that borders the Pennsylvania-Ohio line and is located 15 miles east
of the Youngstown, Ohio Airport, and the Air Force Reserve Base." It is because of
my job that I am reluctant to make this report at all. I am familiar with most of
the types of planes, helicopters, and dirigibles that fly in and around this area.
The object I saw on this particular day was a silver color that was definitely more
intense than any of the planes I usually see. The object was circular in shape and
had no visible wings. Because I was in a moving vehicle traveling at a speed of 45
miles per hour, I could not estimate the speed of the object as it moved in an
easterly direction. I can only guess its size and distance from me as 1 to 2 miles
and the approximate size of a quarter held at arm's length. I attempted t!
o pull off the roadway to get a better visual and maybe a still photo, but as I
slowed down the object accelerated upward at a tremendous speed and was gone in an
instant. The weather was sunny and the sky was exceptionally clear. This is notable
because this area is usually shrouded in cloud coverage known as the Great Lakes
Effect. This report is a result of my interest in knowing if anyone else had
witnessed that particular event. Thanks to NUFORC
WASHINGTON DC OVAL UFO SIGHTING
Linda Willitts reports that on May 11, 2001, there was a UFO sighting during the
Disclosure Project activities at 2:55 PM. They witnessed a large silver round object
floating over the DC area from a hilltop on Wilson Boulevard just outside of the
district. Two witnesses confirmed the sighting with me. We observed a ball shaped
object, metallic silver in color, float in an easterly direction, until it became
hard to see. Thanks to XingPt@..., coordinator@...
GEORGIA FLYING TRIANGLE SHAPED CRAFT HOVERS OVER TREES
MARIETTA -- Two witnesses were driving up a road near their home when they saw what
first appeared to be a helicopter flying very low on April 31, 2001. At 3:47 PM, the
witnesses saw the craft was only a few feet above the trees. It had a triangular
shape and there was no evidence of blades on the craft. The witness stated, "One
thing I am certain, it was not any type of helicopter mainly for two reasons that it
made no sound, and second there would be some type of physical blade activity in that
general area of the craft since it was so low in altitude. The wind velocity did not
cause the branches to sway even though it passed just above them. After seeing the
craft, it seemed to have had a 'sense' of something and it finally darted back behind
the tall pines trees. It did not take more than three seconds to drive to where we
could see behind the trees and the full sky and any normal object would clearly be in
view. It was gone and there was nothing. I have not witnes!
sed a UFO that close and in broad daylight. It was spectacular. There was not a
cloud in the sky, and you could see the metallic sheen of the craft. It truly was
fascinating. The witness had never reported anything like this before mainly because
he does his own research, but felt this needs to be heard. Thanks to NUFORC.
CROTHERSVILLE -- MUFON Headquarters reports that on May 22, 2001, that the witnesses
were looking east out their living room window at 11:30 PM, when they noticed a
rotating light moving slowly north. The witness asked, "Sue, turn the light out.
There is something strange out there." They could see a glowing object, shaped like
the old baby moon hubcaps of the 60's on top and bottom or like a squashed sphere
with its horizontal axis about three or four times longer than its vertical axis.
Its entire surface glowed with a yellow or gold. There was a diffuse bright white
light slowly sweeping around its equator like the moon rising in intensity. The
white light was not a point source nor did it have a high contrast outline. There
were no distinguishing marks on the surface of the main object so the witness
couldn't tell if the main object was rotating with a fixed beacon at one point on its
equator or whether the object was fixed and the light moved around its equator.
The house sits at the west end of a field with woods on three sides. The ground in
the east woods drops immediately into a streambed then rises gradually. About a mile
east of the house are US Highway 31 and the town of Crothersville. The witness
stated, "We got a good look at this thing, it was just at treetop level near the
north end of the field and moving north." We had one better look at it through an
opening in the trees before it was completely hidden from view. It was about the
size of the moon rising, though Sue says about two to three times that big. In any
case it spanned two or three big trees as it began to be eclipsed by them. I think I
saw it for about 30 seconds before we turned out the light and 10 seconds after. It
seemed to be moving north very slowly the whole time. Sue commented that it seemed
to hover. After it disappeared Sue looked at me and said, "I sure am glad somebody
saw this thing besides me." I called the Indiana State Police post in S!
eymour and asked if they had any reports about strange flying objects. They were
polite, but no. I talked to the editor of the Crothersville Times. He hadn't heard
anything either. Thanks to MUFON Headquarters. This case is under further
investigation by Indiana MUFON
ILLINOIS REPEAT SIGHTINGS
MARION -- On May 4, 2001, the witnesses saw several circularly rotating red, blue,
and green lights at 1:00 PM. The witness says, "It all started several ago when we
all began seeing a large light in the sky which was always located around the Creal
Springs area." It starts as a bright blue light in the sky and always flashes red to
blue or green while it gradually gets smaller. Later it may get larger and disappear
totally only to reappear again flashing and changing size. I myself have seen it
many times. Sometimes it sends off similar smaller craft, which weave and spiral
around. At other times they shoot straight off of it. My friends and I have seen it
move across the horizon in less than two minutes. My friend and I have seen the UFOs
flashing with multiple red, blue, and green lights that apparently were a rotating
object. Sightings occur regularly at the lake and towards Creal. Others and I
commonly see the craft in these areas. I saw it last night, and toda!
y it did not surprise me to find a field with a circle on a patch of ground clearly
visible from the road. I also went back and took pictures. Thanks to NUFORC.
GLENDALE -- Bill Hamilton writes regarding last weeks Filer's Files #21 where the
abductee asks the aliens, "How do you navigate through space and survive?" I was
told that they used their minds for navigational purposes!"
Bill says, "Something struck me about this sentence, there is a biological to digital
control as best the aliens could explain it to me. It takes three aliens to properly
fly and navigate this craft for interstellar travel!" In my book, ALIEN MAGIC, I
recount an experience I had on May 8, 1981. I was alone in my house in Glendale,
Arizona at the time and it was hot that night. I went to bed around midnight with
only a sheet on the bed. Around 1:00 AM, I was still not asleep but drifting in a
hypnologic state of consciousness when I suddenly became aware of 3 little guys
standing at the foot of my bed. I could not seem to open my eyes, but I could still
see them. They were white as marshmallows. Surprised, I asked (in my mind), "Where
did you come from?" The leader in front had a hyper-mind link with the other two and
answered me, "We came from Casa Grande." "No, no, that is not what I mean," I
replied thinking that was an absurd literal answer to my question. "I mea!
n, where do you come from...from out there." Then I received an answer, "from the
Pleiades." This confused me even more. Before departing, the leader looked straight
into my mind and I heard a high-pitched frequency that penetrated deeply as if he
sent me an encoded data packet that recorded it itself at some deep layer of my
mind. Then, they were gone!
I leaped out of bed with my adrenaline running and heard the sound of the curtain
flapping in the breeze. It seems like I had been holding my breath and when I did
breath in deeply, I could smell ozone permeating the room as if some electrical
outlet was shorting out. The aftermath of this bedroom encounter was that a friend
told me the next day that she had been out walking the dog in the heat of the night
and saw a UFO hovering over Phoenix at about 1:00 AM. A week later my friend Carl,
living in Casa Grande, reported an encounter that same night when he saw a light in
his trailer and could smell the whiff of ozone in the air! My point is: The 3
aliens formed a unit. I knew this. They were synthetic and absorbed light through
their skin for energy. This 3-unit performed a number of tasks together. That is
what struck me about this story from Filer's Files. Now enough about my own crazy
experiences and back to being the skeptical researcher and hard-nosed investigat!
or. Since Alien Magic has been out of print I decided to publish it as an e-book.
Thanks to Bill Hamilton Executive Director of Skywatch International.
LAS VEGAS -- Milton Malone writes, I am from Birmingham Alabama. I spent this past
week in Las Vegas at a software users conference at the Paris Casino and Resort. On
Wednesday, May 23, 2001, as I was lying by the pool around 4:00 PM I saw an object
hovering in the clear blue sky. It appeared about as large as a small flat nail head
at arms length (the kind used to hang picture frames). As I was observing the object
it was changing color from electric pink to silver to white. It also appeared to
become distorted at times. I was viewing with the unaided eye. It hovered for seven
minutes and then began to make a slow trek through the sky in a westerly direction.
A few others saw the object with me as well. Thanks to Milton Malone. Mars2012
CALIFORNIA CLOSE LOOK AT FLYING TRIANGLE
PENN VALLEY/LAKE WILDWOOD - Six witnesses observed a strange light moving around in
the sky about 1000 yards from their home on May 7, 2001. At 8:10 PM, they noticed
what at first appeared to be a plane with landing lights on hovering above a hill.
After watching for a minute or so the witness grabbed a camera. The witness says,
"The craft slowly came our way very slowly but made no noise. I snapped photos (not
developed as of this writing) as it came towards us at about 200 feet in the air. As
it passed very slowly over the house I could hear no sound. It was shaped like a
large wing with white lights illuminating the bottom that was not smooth but had a
lot of structure. As it came towards me it had two big white lights close together
pointing forward and blue, red and white lights as it moved slowly out of sight.

SAN DIEGO -- A giant whirlpool was video taped live by an aircraft pilot off the
coast of California on May 10, 2001. It was shown on the Channel 2 News in Los
Angeles at 5:00 PM Scientists claim they have no explanation for the whirlpool and
have never seen anything like it. The photograph shows a very impressive and strong
vortex phenomenon in the Pacific Ocean.
THOUGHT SCREEN FOR ABDUCTIONS
Michael Menkin writes that I am seeking possible alien abductees to test a thought
screen helmet, which has been successful in stopping aliens from abducting humans.
Any abductee can call me at 425-454-2355. All information is confidential. Thanks
to Michael Menkin menkin@...
Editors Note: I have no first hand knowledge of this device and Mike's claims.
Other abductees have reported that their abductions stop with strong positive prayer.
UNITED KINGDOM SIGHTINGS
WEST YORKSHIRE -- Jonathan Hague writes, I live near Todmorden, England one of the
hottest spots for UFO sightings. Strange lights in the sky are not uncommon around
here. Everyone has a story to tell. During the last week two US Super Stallion
Helicopters have been seen flying low over the area. There maybe a reasonable
explanation for this, but they do not normally fly over this area. Thanks to Jon
EXETER -- On May 19, 2001, the witness reports, "My wife and I were in our back yard
at approximately 23.30 hours GMT in the Wonford area." We saw three aircraft at high
altitude pass overhead in rapid succession, heading for London. In the heavy
traffic, we both saw a luminous gray object suddenly appear directly overhead
traveling in a straight line and heading towards Exeter Airport. It was not a plane
(no noise, no navigation lights. It was in sight for about 7 to 10 seconds before
disappearing into the general haze created by the city lights. It was oblong, with
the long side leading. My perception is that it was flying at 1000 feet altitude and
was about the size of an airbus traveling at airspeed of 100 m.p.h. Thanks to

THE UFO - JESUS CONNECTION
David E. Twichell writes, "The ancient astronaut and Biblical UFO hypotheses are not
new. However, no one seems to want to take the matter to the next logical step. If
Ezekiel's, "wheel within a wheel," and Moses', "pillar of fire and cloud," were
forerunners of today's UFOs, then the Star of Bethlehem and the brilliant cloud to
which Jesus ascended must be treated in the same vein. When Biblical descriptions of
anomalous aerial phenomena are overlaid on that of modern-day UFO reports, the
picture seems to meld as one. Once the evidence has been presented, the reader is
led to a conclusion that is at best convincing and at least thought provoking. Are
you willing to risk having your worldview shaken? Read the preface free at:

NEW NASA SHUTTLE VIDEO OF UFOs IN SPACE
Jeff Challender has prepared a new tape of various UFOs that were caught on recent
Shuttle video footage. Jeff has over an hour-long tape of UFOs shot in space. Jeff
spends hundreds of hours watching the shuttle broadcasts from space and is now an
expert on NASA missions and even those onboard the shuttle are unlikely to see what
Jeff does. Using Jeff's directions you will be able to learn the difference between
space junk, ice crystals and real UFOs. One segment has 24 UFOs watching the shuttle
from space. I feel confident we could go into a court of law and convince any jury,
UFOs are moving around our Earth. Send $25 to: Jeff Challender 2768 Mendel Way -
