      ========================== Forwarded message begins ======================

      On July 25, 2001, NIDS sent a FOIA request to the FAA requesting radar
      tapes (Tracon) for the July 149615, 2001 timeframe around the Carteret UFO
      incident. NIDS also requested the tower voice tapes for the same time
      period from Newark International Airport.

      Prior to receiving the FOIA data, NIDS received a preliminary analytical
      report that details unidentified flying objects without transponders
      detected on air traffic control radar in the airspace around Newark
      International Airport on the night of July 149615, 2001. The report is
      summarized in table form below.

      The following points are to be noted:

      1. All times in the report are Zulu time (GMT). Subtract 4 hours to get
      Carteret time for each data point.
      2. Speed of the different objects is measured in knots (kts).
      3. EWR refers to Newark International Airport.
      4. NONE of the objects in the table below had transponders.20

      By far the most noteworthy aspect of this communication is the large
      number of objects detected that DO NOT have transponders (all commercial
      aircraft have transponders) in the airspace around Newark International at
      the same time that an estimated seventy eyewitnesses on the New Jersey
      Turnpike and a further fifty (estimated) witnesses from Staten Island
      reported unidentified lights in the same area of sky.20

      A request to randomly check for aircraft without transponders at the same
      time on a DIFFERENT night produced the result that there were no objects
      without transponders in the air around Newark International airport on
      that second, randomly chosen, night.

      This "control" study lends support to the notion that such a large
      profusion of objects without transponders in the air around one of the
      busiest international airports in the world is unusual. Secondly, the
      fact that multiple objects without transponders were in the same airspace
      while over one hundred eyewitnesses on the ground were watching several
      unidentified objects over Carteret may be of interest.

      In addition, we now have interviews with 13 witnesses posted on our website:
