Marilyn Ruben at Alien Abduction Experience and Research reports that a significant breakthrough in the search for trace physical evidence of alien abductions may have been uncovered in ordinary household dust according to biophysicist Dr. William C. Levengood of Pinelandia Biophysics Laboratory of Michigan. Microscopic glassy particles have been found in household dust of individuals claiming to be abductees. Glassy particles have been found in bedrooms, kitchens, family rooms, hallways, basement stairs, and so on. Glassy particles have not been found in dust where abductions are not known to occur. The glassy particles come in a variety of shapes, including hollow or solid spheres. The particles are occasionally amber in color and vary in size from 1 micron or more, which is 1/1,000 of a millimeter or larger. Other more elongated particles include a "pseudo crystal" and an octopus shape. These forms are often clear and contain definite non-cellular, non-plant structure. A visual inspection of the "pseudo crystals" under 450x magnification gives the appearance of a fiber optic arrangement, while the octopus structure sometimes appears to have exploded outward at its center as if releasing something.

Household dust is best collected from areas not commonly dusted, such as the top ledges of doors and window frames. Unexplainable whitish dust in recently cleaned rooms of abductees' homes has also tested positive for these glassy particles. While abductees' homes have produced two or more styles of particles, no abductee's home to date has produced all styles of particles. Dr. Levengood is continuing his research into uncovering the origin of the currently unexplainable glassy particles. Thanks to Marilyn Rueben and Nancy Talbot. Particle photos can be seen at:

Editor's Note: This evidence is very convincing and in the past I have frequently asked abductees to collect this type of evidence for BLT Research. Any person who has intruders in their home has the right to ask that their situation be investigated. Now we have a method for determining that unusual particles have been left in the abductee's home. I consider this a break through in helping to prove that strange things are happening in abductee's homes.


Red Setter writes, "We simply do not know enough today to understand how new species develop. The answer is "we don't know". It is very suspicious that most abductees show punch-biopsy marks on their legs, as if for DNA PCR sampling. This suggests that alien species are (a) monitoring our genetic development, if not (b) adding transgenes and following their penetrance over many generations. Our new lab will analyze alien tissue samples, to see how they relate to man.
Best, Red Setter Editors Note: It would be wonderful to support research in this field where a break through may be expected.


CANTON -- On February 8, 2000, I was traveling south at 5:15 AM, when I saw a bright light off to the west. I traveled for three miles on Route 95 watching the strange light when something told me to pull over into the breakdown lane to watch. A flying triangle passed overhead just ahead of my truck and I noticed its lights were not setup like a normal planes. There were eight yellow/white lights. One was one on each of the three corners. Two were in the front side by side, three at the bottom middle side by side, and several across the back. Two blue strobe lights were at the middle rear of the craft. As it passed in front of my truck, I rolled down the window but could hear no sound. This craft was as large as my hand at arm's length. A jet plane at this height would have been very loud, but there was no noise. The triangle traveled about ten miles in about two minutes (300 mph) from Route 1A in Walpole to Route 138 Stoughton.

GLENWOOD LANDING -- I went down to Tappan Beach to eat on February 2, 2000, and saw a strange light in the northern sky I decided to go home to get my video camera just in case it was worth taping. I got back in only five minutes since I live up the block. I saw a long cigar shaped light gray to white object at 5:00 PM, but the original light remained stationary. There were three other planes in the sky leaving dual contrails. I watched for 30 seconds, and realized the cigar was huge and the length of seven commercial jets. It was moving really slow for something that big. The cigar flew past the stationary light. As it turned towards my direction, its shape turned into a ball-heading west. In my videotape your can hear the sound of a strong wind. This could not have been a balloon because they don't fly against the wind. I was able to get about ninety seconds of the cigar on videotape. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director NUFORC,


OLD BRIDGE--OBJECT #1 - Sam Sherman writes, "On February 11, 2000, I was driving south on Cottrell Road and as I slowed to a stop I observed a luminous aerial object traveling south/southwest at 6:55 PM. It was tubular in shape with a pointed arrow-like front and bright yellow/white color. The last third of the object had an unusual red to orange glow. The lighted body was far brighter than the average plane light in the sky. The object traveled with far greater speed than planes I am used to seeing. It was heading down at a 30 degrees angle towards the ground. It seemed to fade out in the clouds or I lost sight of it.

OBJECT #2 -- Moments later I saw an unusual plane heading north towards me in the direction of where I was with very bright lights illuminating the bottom of the plane and looking to point downward. These lights compared with other aircraft lights, were brighter than any I had ever seen. The object made a turn and headed north/northwest.

OBJECT #3 -- Continuing to drive about 1/2 mile south I got out of my car and observed what I thought was a plane extremely bright with wildly strobing white and red lights. As it headed north/northeast in the distance I saw this as only one wide wing with white and red bright lights wildly moving in sequential patterns to the right and left across this long horizontal surface.

OBJECT #4 -- At 7:30 PM I was taking my wife and my mother out to dinner and we were driving west on Ferry Road. As we approached the stop light at Route 18 (I had yet to mention my previous sightings), both ladies exclaimed, "What's that?" There was an object with extremely bright red and white lights all over it flashing wildly in random patterns. We all observed this coming towards us and then turning to head north. I give no possible explanation to the objects I saw. I have been observing planes and phenomena in the sky for many years and the four above objects were unlike any I had previously seen and definitely out of the ordinary. Thanks to Sam Sherman


POLK/BARTON COUNTY LINE -- A six-year veteran of the Polk County Police Department was on duty at 04:09 AM on February 03, 2000. He was on Route 113N facing south with the patrol car's engine off preparing for traffic patrol. He looked out through his car window toward the stars since earlier he had seen meteors and the usual air traffic going towards Hartsfield Airport. Suddenly he saw a red glow behind a gray circular object. It was like nothing he had ever seen before. The object flew towards him at a great speed making no sound. It had a gray cone shape front that elongated into a cylinder. The object was flying from the southeast toward the west-northwest. As the object got closer, he saw on the rear a red glowing circle of light. but no recognizable engines, markings, lights or windows. It lasted no more than eight seconds but shook him up. He called 911 by phone, not over the radio and asked if any other reports came in concerning a sighting. There were no other reports.

COLUMBUS -- John Thompson is investigating a February 5, 2000, mystery boom that shook the region at 5:19 PM. I thought I had it pinned down to an F-15 at Warner-Robbins, near Perry, but now the public affairs officer, John Birdsong, says he's talked to the F-15 pilot who was doing a test run between Montezuma and Dublin, Georgia. The pilot says, "he didn't go supersonic at anytime, but suggested it was a F-22 from Lockheed Marietta and 'flying the test route west of Columbus." So we are to believe a corporate owned F-22 made a boom while in Alabama that seems to have covered a path 140 miles long by 70 miles wide. Some boom! I called Lockheed and they said, "They don't even have a F-22 flying in Georgia." There was a single witness according to the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer 2/8/00 by Sam Thorne Harper. The witness said that he saw a "black mass with white smoke traveling just above the trees." Unfortunately, this witness did not want to cooperate. I think we can safely say it was a sonic boom.
I personally think the most realistic answer is a military jet that landed at Warner Robbins or further east. Yes, it could've been a UFO but no reliable witnesses have come forth.

Dr. L. Timothy Long of Georgia Tech has helped MUFON on seismic data on this case and others. His e-mail address is Tim is in the process of developing equipment that would detect such events (low frequency sonic booms and earthquakes). The price would be $500-1000. If there is anyone interested in supporting this project let me know. Thanks to John Thompson at


GRISSOM AIR FORCE BASE -- I live less than 20 miles from the base the former home of the Air Force 1 backup plane for the President. I'm used to seeing aircraft, but several years ago I saw some very strange craft in mid-afternoon of a lovely bright, clear summer day. I happened to glance out my second story window and was amazed to see 200 yards to the south three large triangular craft. The three triangular unburnished gold appearing craft were rising silently from the ground in formation. One was in front with two to the rear. They had no markings, windows, or protrusions, and a rather flat surface rounded at the corner wit an overall "soft" appearance. There were no lights, no openings, and no contrails. The trajectory was a bit more than a 45% angle and they were moving rather slowly as they took off. They appeared for only a few seconds and then were simply no longer there. These craft appeared very close and the experience seemed quite surreal. I have seen pictures of the Aurora and they are similar. Thanks to and


LORDSBURG - Richard Boylan writes, "I just got back from the David Shoemaker's most interesting "Aliens and Spirits" Conference. He took us to the highest point on a mesa northwest of town on February 5, 2000, where we saw two enormous lit up motherships sitting on the ground. They were about eight miles away and each ship was over a half-mile in diameter. Small "scout" craft were seen departing and returning to the motherships after flying to outlying mining sites. At one point scout ships at distances surrounded the group from three miles to a half-mile. David Shoemaker has examined the landing sites in daylight and says they are mining alkali to make Brown's Gas, a highly energetic substance. We also did a ceremony during the conference to inject the thought in every human being; "I must take care of the Earth." Thanks to Richard Boylan, Ph.D. Editor's Note: This area should be examined in detail for ground landing trace evidence and the mining techniques used.


Ted Phillips writes: The updated catalog of physical traces associated with UFO sightings gives us data from 2,240 events from 79 countries. This is a revised and updated list of traces after taking out all events where no UFO was seen at the site, crop circles, and cases with little information to study. There has been a considerable drop in the close encounter/trace events since the 70's. Preliminary statistics indicate an average of 106 such events per year between 1967 and 1979. The average per year drops to 15.7 between 1980 and 1999. Between 1990 and 1999 the yearly average is slightly higher at 17 events per year. Multiple witness events average 34.4% of the total events, and last year 31% of the events involved multiple witnesses. Occupants were reported at an average rate of 18.4% of the total events with 1990 to 1999 at 16%. It is important to note that the alleged UFO was seen on or very near the ground for an extended period of time. Sightings were at least one to five minutes long and most were observed at less than 200 feet away with good conditions for observation. Why these numbers per year have dropped since the late 1970's is not obvious. One stand out is that a higher percentage of witnesses now refuse to report these events if their names or locations are to be made public. Ted Phillips


ORANGE COUNTY -- William Hamilton of Skywatch reports NBC News broadcast February 6, 2000, that unidentified lights were at midnight toward Los Angeles. This story is interesting in view of the fact that I received a report last night around between 8 and 9 PM on a sighting of a cluster of lights seen over Palmdale not more than 5 miles east of my home location. Three of the lights formed a line. They were also seen moving about, then disappeared from view. Thanks to Bill Hamilton Director Skywatch International, Inc.


We have several reports of robed hooded figures walking along the road with bright red eyes in New Jersey. They were observed by passing motorists. We even have a video of a tall one in the woods with eyes like red light bulbs taken in Ohio. Darlene an abductee writes: "Since finding freedom from the hooded beings a couple years ago--through means of certain practices of my religion, I haven't thought much about them." However, I have been a bit surprised to find references and even artwork about them recently. In the past almost all the info I found was relative to Greys or occasionally to Nordics. I do not know to this day if these fiends by which I had been terrorized most of my adult life (several decades) were demonic as we all do not know concerning ETs or of some other species. But they did comply with the practices used against them. Nor do I know if I have ever been abducted in the physical sense of the word; however, I have been "held" unmercifully against my will. I used to refer to these experiences as night terrors. I suffered terribly from nightmares during my childhood -- but now they are only sporadic but still just as frightening. "My last episode ended with me fighting them off with my fists as they attempted to work on me on an operating table in a brightly lit room." "I awoke to find myself on my hands and knees on the bed pounding the hell out of my pillow." Thanks to Darlene.


DORSET -- An ancient castle sited in a Dorset town is a magnet for spacecraft from another planet. That is the finding of a Dorchester-based UFO investigator who recorded 130 other reports of strange activity in the county's skies last year - 32 of, which remain unexplained. But it is Maiden Castle, which seems to come in for most attention with a catalogue of reports of unexplained sightings over the years. A large earthwork construction of banks and ditches in an area that has also experienced crop circles. Dorset UFO investigator David Kingston of Martinstown said: "The castle seems to attract these craft. I have checked back into the history of the castle and uncovered many strange reports. Many people have also described seeing colored lights and with no explanation. The size of some of these craft is about 80 feet in diameter." David thinks the craft could be sent from other planets to check out earth on unmanned probes. He said: "That is what ours do with Mars and so this could happen with other planets. In the future we should be able to find out." David, aged 61, is a retired RAF worker and is now a full-time UFO investigator. He said: "There are definitely craft which cannot be explained and are from another planet. Having been in the RAF I know the distances aircraft should fly over populated areas. These are different. "We had sightings about two years ago of a triangular craft 100 foot above the Puddletown bypass. We also have video footage of craft seen over the Ridgeway and NASA has analyzed it.

KINGS LYNNE --On January 23, 2000, at 9: 00 PM, a married couple "saw a bright light glide over their house and travel some three miles from Holbeach towards Kings Lynne." "The object was traveling slowly with a flashing light much like a navigation light on a plane." "Suddenly, a large white light appeared in the center of the object with flickering intermittent lights around the object." The witnesses estimated that the UFO was three miles away and hovering at an estimated altitude of 15,000 feet. "The object hovered for approximately ten minutes, at which point the object then dipped to the right slowly, then shot up away into the sky" at an estimated 5,000 miles per hour. "As my Mum put it, 'it flew into space!' " My parents are not taken to flights of fancy, and my father is a trained ex-RAF observer of 25 years. Thanks to UFONET and Todd Lemire.


RIYADH -- My name is Mohammed and I'm a 34-year old-network designer who saw UFOs. Two years ago, I bought a fully loaded jeep with a Ground Positioning System (GPS) to go camping out in the Rub-al-khali desert in southeast Saudi Arabia. A few days into the trip around 10:00 PM, I saw three shooting stars fall normally but they suddenly slowed down. Two came toward me and were about 500 meters from me. They moved side by side at about 50 km and 200 meters off the ground. They were round with a pointed on the top and bottom. They were silver and had an orange like glow around them. They were about the size of an 18-wheeler truck, but made no sound. I decided to give chase. When I turned the key nothing happened the jeep would not start the (GPS) which also has a back up power supply was also dead. Now they were heading south from me. I looked back for the one, which was not moving, but it had gone. The whole sighting lasted for about five minutes. After it was over I my jeep started and the (GPS) was working fine. The only thing I don't under stand is why my wristwatch stopped for 50 minutes. Thanks to Larry (Larry Clark)


Where Heavens Meet chronicles the remarkable true story of K.t. Frankovich and her unique life. It had a profound effect on me because I have never read a book written by a person who had been homeless in poverty, crippled, and wheelchair-bound on the streets of Miami with her 13-year-old son. This book is remarkable in that it opens your mind to many new realms of discovery. For example, I have never chased alligators while swimming in a swamp. I have never been in a devastating hurricane like Andrew in Dade, Florida or been treated like she has in many ways. K.t. has an amazing ability to bring you inside her life and live the story beside her. Her discovery of alien life in her lime grove alone is worth the price of the book. She was wide-awake and gives a detailed narrative of the alien's every muscle and movement. Her book is multifaceted, and is really many books in one. This book is a revelation unlike anything I have ever read before. 'In the past she has won the coveted Gold Venus Award for screenwriting, I think this book will win her more awards. Her story continues. See


Ocala National Forest - K.t. writes, "I don't recall the exact date, but just after moving to the forest something incredible occurred." One night in the wee hours of the morning, I was awakened abruptly. The entire trailer was vibrating so hard that I thought it was going to shake apart! My instantaneous thought was, 'My God, it's a tornado!' Even my dogs were terrified out of their wits! But when I quickly got my senses together, I realized it couldn't be a tornado because the entire bedroom -- hallway -- and living room -- were flooded with this brilliant white light coming from outside my bedroom window. There was a strange fast-rotating-whirling noise just above the roof. It sounded like something was going to crash right through the roof at any moment! I realized it was some sort of craft hovering directly above the roof but it was certainly no kind of craft I knew of! I had never heard anything rotate that fast and have that specific kind of whirling noise. I had been around planes all my life. I knew this strange sound was definitely not a helicopter! I crept out of bed, put on my glasses and went to the window where I looked up directly into the beam of light. But it was so damned bright I couldn't make out the shape of the craft. One thing I could definitely distinguish was that the craft was only about ten feet above the roof! And I could tell whatever it was, it was huge because I could see pulsating red lights going around and around in a gigantic circular motion. I remember thinking, 'Holy shit, the damn window pane is gonna shatter from the vibration!'

I glanced at the clock; it was 3:45 in the morning. Ten minutes later, the beam of light just suddenly went off, along with the circular pulsating red lights, and the noise began to fade. The walls of the trailer stopped shaking immediately thereafter. There was no way I could go back to bed, not after something like that. I instinctively knew who it was and why it was done. For months I had been questioning if the lime grove beings knew where I had moved. There wasn't a doubt in my mind that the beings were letting me know they were definitely aware of my new location. I was really comforted in knowing they had not lost track of me. And for the first time I realized, they would always be somewhere close by. Thanks to K.t.Frankovich


Jennifer Brown-Jacobs I enjoyed (and got a laugh) from that story by the guy on the boat near San Francisco who shot at the Flying Triangle craft that launched a helicopter in your #6 Filer's Files. I laughed because I visualized the incident and it was so bizarre that I had to. I doubt that kind of a story was made up. Seems that these "UFOs" connected with the helicopters are often associated with bizarre circumstances. That way, who in their right mind would believe them? Right? We had flat black helicopters with no markings popping over 300 foot trees and instantly dropping to within a few feet from our second story deck. They circled our house and did this routine on a daily basis. They would make up to four circles at a time.

One night, a. helicopter "landed" on our roof and made plates and pictures vibrate on the walls and terrify the children. There were many other experiences with these helicopters that had long "poles" sticking out the front of them. The flash from the camera was unnecessary, knowing the technology available to these helicopter and "UFO" pilots. But didn't that make the whole happening just a little over-the-edge? That is the way the game is played. It's called the see if we can scare 'um and add enough wacko stuff to make it totally unbelievable game. And if you didn't know any better or how it is played, it's likely that most everybody would discount the whole scenario. Thanks to Jennifer Brown-Jacobs Jbjksgrl Editor's Note: Loud black helicopters may have been our own military, who enjoyed showing off for you. I would advise you to try to obtain a photograph or video record and call the local authorities. All legal aircraft have some markings, although they can be hard to see. This kind of flight activity is dangerous and illegal. We are trying to check on the Flying Triangle story further. I would think it's technically illegal to fire at any kind of aircraft, alien or otherwise. We do have continuing indications there are craft of this description flying. It is thought they are based on an Aereon Corporation design patented from Princeton, NJ. Further many fisherman carry Rugers and when scared might fire into these craft.
