We live on one of the great jewels in the universe and that is one of the main reason we are being visited. The visitors have been giving us a message, but many cannot see it or understand it. Our Creator gave us this Earth to take care of and we must do a better job. The reader should understand, I'm a UFO advocate, and I firmly believe there is enough evidence to launch scientific research into the phenomenon of UFOs. I have studied this field for thirty years, and not one week has gone by without new and significant news on the subject. Many people do not accept the phenomenon as fact, since their life experiences are not equivalent to my own. I understand that we are each given certain wisdom and opportunities. I chased one while in the Air Force and saw this large radar return on my radar screen showing me they were real. My web site started in September and now according to my web master Chuck Warren has half a million hits a month mostly from people who are searching for answers. Many are from government or schools who see a shocking deterioration in these organizations. Students are killing and raping one another while little of significance is being taught. As each day goes by, the evidence mounts that something is in our skies besides the normal planets, stars, aircraft, or balloons. We obtain some 300 reports from various sources each month. If we are very conservative we can eliminate about 75 to 80 percent of the reports as mistakes in identification. But a solid core of 20 to 25 percent appear as unknown and unidentified. Assuming what these thousands of people see each year is real, what's it all about? There are several likely possibilities of what causes these hard core reports: One is a type of misunderstood plasma or other unknown phenomenon. Others simply point to classified military aircraft or alien life forms thought to live some where on Earth, or perhaps in a different dimension. One of the most likely causes is that we are being visited by alien space ships. Over the last three years I have attempted to provide the reader with some of the most interesting cases and new evidence, but our resources are limited.

I can assure you that something wonderful is in our skies, but they are doing more than lighting up our skies with signs and wonders. I feel they are sending a message. The message does not appear to be one of destruction, but more hope, love, rebirth and good news. We are apparently being warned, signaled, given a sign of wonders and given a lamp of guidance. Although, there may be a dark side, most of the message is comfort to the lonely, an encouragement to protect our Earth and the weakest creatures amongst us. I feel they are saying it is time to clean up our act morally, spiritually and environmentally. If you carefully look for these signs in our skies ,you will find them. People from every walk of life including several of our Presidents have seen these signs. Leaders in Chile, Brazil, and France are actively searching for them. The US Air Force spent over twenty years up until 1969 chasing them, and key Generals like Twining and Chidlaw acknowledged they were here. My own search continues. These files are free, but I can always use your help in uncovering the most important secrets of mankind and the universe. I invite you to join our quest and with God's help we will reach our goals. The visitors or angels have come across space and time to visit us and they have tried to give each one of us a great conceptual message. Mankind in its greed often messes up the message, but the basic message is for all mankind to benefit. So far my understanding of the message being brought to us is that God loves us and cares. He created this world and its treasures and protects us from most harm, and He has given a set of instructions to live by. If we do as we are asked and grow, we can join with other civilizations in the universe.


Astronauts have always been distinguished men of valor and exploits. A couple of years ago, Dr. Edgar Mitchell and I had a brief conversation after we spoke to about fifty Congressional staff personnel in Washington DC. He indicated as I do that we may be visited by some type of intelligence from space. I asked Edgar, what he thought was the real secret to all of this concerning UFOs? He said, "The answers are all in the Dead Sea Scrolls." I said, "you mean like the Sons of Light and Darkness?" He said, yes but even now not all of these scrolls have not been revealed. I searched the scrolls myself later to find some meaning . The text of the "War of the Sons of Light and Sons of Darkness" describes where two side are in an apocalyptic battle for Earth. The angels are described as being part of the fight.

"Warrior angels are in our muster, and He that is mighty in War is in our throng. The army of His spirits marches beside us. Our horsemen come like clouds or like banks of dew, to cover the earth, or like torrential showers, to rain judgement on all that grows in it.

Opposing the good forces are the forces of darkness.

But for corruption thou hast made Belial, an angel of hostility. All his dominion is darkness and guilt. All the spirits that are associated with him are angels of destruction. They follow only the laws of darkness, and their craving is directed toward it." Pages 414-416 The Dead Sea Scriptures.


Sam Sherman the president of Independent International Pictures writes, "Where do Aliens come from? When interviewed for my still-unreleased film- "BEYOND THIS EARTH". Astronaut Col. Gordon Cooper spoke about one reported instance where: "Aliens were living on their ships, as they had lost their sun in their own solar system". A possible hypothesis may be that some ET groups live on large ships or space platforms, as has been reported, not on planetary bodies, and these huge crafts loop in and around our planet. Further they send out smaller scout craft for missions (whatever they may be) to Earth. They may have traveled great distances here over decades or hundreds of years and their huge ships serve as replacement and space-faring planets. Just an idea. Thanks to Sam Sherman.

Editor's Notes: NASA seriously considered developing a city in space. The concept and artist's drawing is contained in Ernest Jahn's and Margaret Sachs book "Celestial Passengers UFO's and Space Travel." A space habitat was designed by NASA to carry several hundred thousand people. The space habitat would be 16 miles long by four miles wide and have its own atmosphere and clouds. Only 2% of the materials would come from Earth, the remaining 98% would come from the moon. Not only does it yield an abundant supply of substances such as aluminum, concrete, soil, oxygen, and probably water, but lifting the materials off the moon will require twentieth the energy needed to lift them off Earth, because the Moon has such weak gravitational pull. We have to remember that Earth to is a spaceship. Even the total breakage of one window panel would allow a leak down time of three hundred years. Compare this to the dangers we face on Earth in the form of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, and tornadoes. If aliens were living not too far from Earth in space they may have a few minute ride to visit us. The dark eyes often described by abductees may be a permanent eyeglasses to protect sensitive eyes from the glare of our powerful sun or the bright light created by their propulsion systems. It happens there are places in space There are five points (L-1 thru L-5) in space known as Lagrangian Libration Points where a space ship can stay with little if any energy needed. L-4 and L-5 are particularly well balanced where the gravitational and centrifugal forces of the Earth and Moon cancel each other out. Any object within one of these roughly spherical areas would remain orbiting around the Earth just as our Moon does. This is roughly a 60 degree angle in front and behind the moon essentially along its orbital path. Astronomers may wish to examine that portion of the sky to see if any small moonlets or space ships are orbiting our Earth.

I have seen some of the original footage of Sam's full-length motion picture. This film should be finished. It has some great footage of UFOs over Clear Lake, California, and a farm in New Jersey. I'm sure Sam would like to hear from potential investors. Give Sam a call at 732 727-8500. and tell him I asked you to call.


CSETI Director Steven M. Greer M.D. has put out a new book that is worth reading. Steven who provides some profound thinking in his own right indicates he does not feel abductions are actually taking place. He gives us insight into the mind of one of the most consequential men of the century who he doesn't agree with when he states, "In one lengthy meeting with a multi-billionaire, I was told that he gave great support to UFO activities which propel the so-called 'alien abduction' subject into public awareness because he wanted humanity to unite around fighting this 'alien threat'. Later, this very influential figure informed me that he believed these demonic ET s were the cause of every set back in human history since Adam and Eve. Sound familiar?"

Editor's Note: This billionaire has been friends with many US presidents and top political, religious and economic leaders worldwide for more than fifty years. Is it possible that Laurance Rockefeller knows what he's talking about? Thanks to Steven M. Greer M.D. See


"All Apollo and Gemini flights were followed, both at a distance and sometimes also quite closely, by space vehicles of extraterrestrial origin - flying saucers, or UFOs, if you want to call them by that name. Every time it occurred, the astronauts informed Mission Control, who then ordered absolute silence." "I think that Walter Schirra aboard Mercury 8 was the first of the astronauts to use the code name 'Santa Claus' to indicate the presence of flying saucers next to space capsules. However, his announcements were barely noticed by the general public. It was a little different when James Lovell on board the Apollo 8 command module came out from behind the moon and said for everybody to hear: 'PLEASE BE INFORMED THAT THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS.' Even though this happened on Christmas Day 1968, many people sensed a hidden meaning in those words."

The rumors persist. NASA may well be a civilian agency, but many of its programs are funded by the defense budget and most of the astronauts are subject to military security regulations. Apart from the fact that the National Security Agency screens all films and probably radio communications as well. We have the statements by Otto Binder, Dr. Garry Henderson and Maurice Chatelain that the astronauts were under strict orders not to discuss their sighting programs are funded by the defense budget and most of the astronauts are subject to military security regulations.

Astronaut Eugene Cernan was commander of Apollo 17. In a Los Angeles Times article in 1973 he said, "I've been asked (about UFOs) and I've said publicly I thought they (UFOs) were somebody else, some other civilization."

In 1979, Maurice Chatelain, former chief of NASA Communications Systems confirmed that Armstrong had indeed reported seeing two UFOs on the rim of a crater. Chatelain believes that some UFOs may come from our own solar system -- specifically Titan. "The encounter was common knowledge in NASA, but nobody has talked about it until now."


BARNEGAT BAY-- Jeanne writes I have about one minute of video tape of my sighting. I saw the two lights above the trees on February 11, 2000. On the tape the date is not correct but I seem to have gotten something. When I viewed the tape there appears to be a third object in the upper left of the two brighter lights. When I first saw the white objects in Waretown, New Jersey they were hovering above the trees , but as soon as I opened the blinds they descend below the trees. There is only my home on this deserted street with woods in the back where I saw the UFO's. But when we investigated the spot I found the UFOs were actually over part of the Barnegat Bay. From my backyard all you can see are endless woods that back up to the inlet of the Atlantic Ocean.

I first saw these ships around 11:30 PM and they hovered and moved up and down for about three hours. I really believe they saw me because if I just cracked the vertical blinds they were above the trees. As soon as I opened two verticals to watch them, they quickly went below the trees like it was a game. I was too afraid to go outside or I would have a better filming of this event. This was the first time in my life I ever used a video camera so while I would try to get between the verticals my pictures would be shot of my floor. I used the zoom lens and zoomed in and out a lot. The next night I heard a loud sonic boom similar to what we heard all summer long around 4:00 AM twice a week. I thought something was coming through my house since it shook like an earthquake for about three seconds. I ran to the back verticals and saw five fighter jets whiz by. Thanks to: J cat0892I


BALTIMORE - Bill Bean writes, I would like to report my latest video footage. I shot it on February 29, 2000. My wife and I were going to visit friends in the Baltimore area, and I felt something was urging me to take my camcorder, so I did. We arrived at the home of Debbie and Frank Hutchinson. I asked if I could set up my camcorder on his front porch? and he said sure. I turned the camcorder on its tripod and pointed it south. We let the camera run until 10:56 PM when we went inside to play it back. There were only a few airplanes until 10:31 PM. Then a craft appeared flying at a very low altitude with no sound. The thing looked white [yellowish] in color and had a weird flicker to it [like a flame]; it was there for about twenty seconds, before it slowly moved to the west. It also appeared to be projecting a light downward. At 10:37 PM out of the east, two objects come into the frame moving very slowly one behind the other. This object gets to about the middle of the frame and stops and puts out a very bright glow. It starts moving again and heads off to the south.

At 10:39 PM a group of flickering objects can be seen, one slowly heads west reverses itself and slowly moves east. One above it heads east and suddenly reverses towards the west. The two appear about the same altitude and pass each other in close proximity. The one heading east, stops and glows bright white. A third object comes in from the east at 10:41 PM and comes dangerously close to the one heading to the east. We reviewed the tapes and Frank said, " airplanes do not reverse and do not fly that close to each other." I said, "You're exactly right, I just wanted to hear it from you!" The camera was in focus the whole time. We went outside and the only thing we saw and heard was an airplane at a much higher altitude. The shape of these things reminded us of pillars and chariots of fire mentioned in the bible. Thanks to BILL BEAN. (Bill & Linda Bean)


CHATSWORTH -- MUFON Georgia State Director writes that he has investigated the October 16, 1999 at 10:30 PM sighting. Drew a business owner observed light from his home that is situated at the top of Fort Mountain. An unidentified object was moving over the valley below. It was a round bright light hovering about a mile away. It was drifting very slowly from left to right as he watched. It would change from the size of basketball at arm's length to the size of a baseball. He could see it pass behind some thin branches of a small tree in is yard. It expanded again to the size of a basketball and disappeared. The witness is of high standing in the community and is well educated. There is a preponderance of UFO reports from the Fort Mountain indicating something is going on in the area. It is possible that piezoelectric or floating plasma like effects is occurring due to tectonic stress of a geologic formation. Most of the UFOs have been reported coming down from high altitude, rather than low-level lights often associated with this phenomenon. Another witness has observed several unmistakable solid anomalous craft at very close range. There is no indication that celestial or weather related objects are responsible for this case. Low flying aircraft in this valley at night would be suicidal due to ridges, peaks, and cell phone towers. Other unusual events have been reported along this Blue Ridge Corridor. In December, residents reported earth tremors particularly in the afternoon. Seismologists at Georgia Tech indicated there had been no earth tremors. These fairly regular sightings indicate there is anomalous cause to this sighting. Thanks to Tom Sheets


TROUP COUNTY - John Thompson one of our country's finest investigators writes, "A circle of lights was seen rising from behind a wood line in extreme north Troup County, just west of Highway 219." The sighting took place on January 27, 2000, at about 12:30 a.m. The 25 year-old witness said he, his friend and his friend's girlfriend were standing outside when they noticed a circle of "red and blue round lights" come straight up only a few hundred yards away. On reaching a level above the woods, the ten to twelve bright lights went streaking to the east just north of their location. The lights, which may or may not have been flashing, were exceptionally bright the young man said. They appeared to be located around the bottom edge of a "saucer" shaped vehicle. Despite the lights not being far away or high, the witness said they heard no sound as the UFO past overhead. Total viewing time of the sighting was only "three seconds". The witness said all of them were certain that this was "no airplane" or helicopter because of the circular arrangement of lights, strange movements, quick speed and no engine noise being heard. He also reported that in weeks before this sighting that they had seen a large brilliant white light moving in pastures and woods behind his friend's house.

The circle of lights is reminiscent of similar sightings that were observed frequently in the Troup-Heard Corridor during 1996-97. The most recent lights seen would suggest, as the other sightings usually did, a lighted craft of car to minivan size. This, of course, is only true if we assume they are on a structured object, as most witnesses believe possible. Many times in the past these "circle of lights" have been seen to rise straight up from a pasture before departing. Unlike past sightings, however, no counter-clockwise rotation of the lights was observed according to the witness. The latest sighting took place in an extremely remote area of Troup County above the Chattahoochee River. This is only a 1/3 of a mile south of the Heard County line. The sighting occurred 28 hours before a freak snowstorm hit Troup and Heard County. While snow was forecast for most of central and north Georgia, only Troup and Heard counties received snow despite being along the southern line of forecasted snowfall. The area where the 2 1/2 inches of snow fell in the early morning hours of the Jan. 28th eerily matched EXACTLY where the "mystery boom" was heard/felt on 8/2/99 when two V-shaped UFOs were seen. While the connection is not known, freakish weather, mystery booms, and UFOs often seem to occur in the same locales. The weather according to the witness was a clear sky, with no wind and a temperature above freezing. Thanks to John Thompson.


PALOS HILLS -- A photographer in a South Chicago suburb captured three UFOs on film last week and has posted them on his website. "I was photographing contrails/chemtrails over Palos Hills, Illinois" on Wednesday, March 1, 2000, when he accidentally captured the images. "I took a series of 34 photos," he reported, "And when I viewed them I saw objects in two photos that I did not see when I took the film". He was using a Model 2700 Vivitar Digital Camera when he shot the 34 photos of the sky near Roberts Road and 103rd Street in Palos Hills. Photo No. 27 shows one UFO in the sky. Photo No. 29 shows three unidentified objects, with two of the objects "turned" or pitched at the same angle. This is the first time that UFOs in the USA's Upper Midwest have been photographed in connection with the mysterious and controversial "chemtrails." The photos may be viewed at and /022900/29.jpg.

LONOKE -- Nancy Talbot writes that on March 9, 2000, in the early morning something came down into farm fields off Allison (?) Loop Road, which created large areas of fire. Ike Bishop in Idaho called me last night, saying he had just seen a report on CBS News about a video of a burning area with flames reaching ten feet in the air. Further stating that the CBS broadcast said that NORAD had said that it "wasn't a meteorite, it wasn't space debris, and that no planes were missing." I then started calling contacts in the Arkansas area to try to get more info . I .got a contact with a woman whose daughter lives in Lonoke & whose mother lives in North Little Rock)had seen a local KVTV broadcast at about 5 PM Friday the 10th. The daughter and her husband are now out looking for the site and will try to sample it, if they can get access. The mother in N. Little Rock, who saw the local TV, broadcast, said that three were whitish-greenish crystals on the burned trees/plants. Today the Little Rock Gazette is reporting an area "40 acres" in size (over a mile long and 150' wide) of forest and farmland is burning in many if there were multiple fires over this huge area. No plane debris found yet, no craters, nothing to indicate what started the fires. Another contact of mine, JoAnne S. in Missouri called the KATV News Desk and spoke to an unidentified woman who indicated that the TV station was not putting out any more info...and the military were involved, JoAnne's impression was that the TV people knew more than they were saying and that they had been asked to stop coverage. Little Rock Air Force Base 13 miles northwest of Lonokethat has a C-130 aircraft and the fire and may have been a plane. Thanks to Nancy Talbot.


Scott Heckman writes that he has backpacked and hiked in the Dragoon Mountains for over twenty years. This is my home and backyard. I have been observing these craft during this long period time. I have located regularly used air corridors all across the Rocky Mountain States. You may use my accounts of the numerous UFOs I've seen and reported over Southern Arizona. The Dragoon Mountain location is a place where a series of unidentified craft utilizing signal-beacon communication systems are observed. They are often near the customary air corridors. The most major base that I have been able to follow the craft towards is located in the Tonto National Forest and the Tonto Basin. This is a large and very remote geological region. I discovered this while camping in the Sierra Ancha Wilderness. The UFOs kept flying down into the basin two minutes apart. They flew low, out of the southeast. at about two thousand feet above the terrain. The craft seemed to know my location as they kept avoiding me when I would relocate my position to get a better look. During the daytime A-10's use the area for training. Re-fueling practice also occurs here both day and night. After a close sighting we usually call the base and inquire if they have any night refueling operations. They often reply "they are performing low level refueling exercises". I doubt it because low level refueling at night in mountainous terrain is exceptionally dangerous. These areas have also been plagued with several unexplained disappearances that have occurred in Cochise County over the last 30 years. Cars are abandoned with people's ID; money and keys left behind. Their occupants are mysteriously missing, never to be seen again. This happens. I have made sketches of various craft and currently do not consider myself an investigator, but merely an observer, or watcher. Thanks to Scott Heckman


KAMPUNG GOBEK -- The Utusan Express in Kuala Lumpur, published a story and picture on March 7, 2000, that shows a large water-filled semi-circular circular ditch. The villager's claim that an object which emitted rays of light landed in the area at 3: 00 AM. Since the report of the landing by the unidentified object, the village has had hundreds of people visit the remote area to look at the phenomenon for themselves. The village situated about 100 Kilometers from Kota Bharu town has been transformed into a carnival-like atmosphere. Many hawkers took the opportunity to put up stalls while others turned tour guides to the hundreds of vehicles converging to the area. Signs direct traffic along several roads in the village to the "mystery crater". A local Malay daily newspaper claims several saw the UFO circling the airspace of Kupang town at about 5:20 AM on Thursday, March 2 just prior to disappearing. The UFO was a big, round object with a tapering end in greenish blue color. It was less noisy than an aircraft. The Space Science Studies Division said at the time that there had been no UFO reports officially filed with them since 1994; apart from a press report on a UFO sighting in Tanjung Sepat a few years back claiming that there were constant nightly movements in the air. The formation of a crater in a marshland area is not something unusual, said an engineer from the Drainage and Irrigation Department (DID). Engineer Razali Mohamed Noor said the landing site was where an irrigation canal was built 1983 for use by the farmers, and the area may have collapsed naturally. The Kelantan Geological Survey Department will dispatch several officers there to investigate the incident. Thanks to Gerry @ Far Shores


Dave from Skywatch writes, "Here in South Cumbria around the Morecombe Bay area, strange Flying Triangle craft are often seen, not everyday but often enough for a lot people too accept them as everyday things." This area is on a civil and military flight path, and it could be easy to disguise a flight from the ground at night. All reports I've heard off seem to fly over the bay towards Preston and the RAF Station. Rumors have emerged of a no-go area there, so if that is where the triangles are heading, that could be where some are based. One lady I know quite well confided this to me early last year. She lives in Lancaster but works in Kendal. The night was still dark, the weather was rainy, and the sky was black. As she was driving home and had a clear view of the bay, she suddenly saw lights in the middle of the bay which appeared to make triangle in shape, for a moment she thought it was the theme park Frontier Land, but then knew it couldn't be. It was not only too early in the season but also what was it doing in the middle of Morecambe Bay anyway. The lights came on for a few moments then went off just as quickly. A few days later it was reported in one of the local papers and that's what prompted her to tell me. She needed to tell some one. Last months NEXUS Magazine claims the reporting of Flying Triangles by the media are subject to 'D' Notices that restrict publication of any stories in the interest of national security. It does not matter how many people witness such crafts the media will not report any sightings of triangles in the UK. The official stand on this one is from the UK MOD who have said to the BBC, off the record, that Triangles are classified craft and confirmed they do exist within the MOD and DOD. Thanks to "David" Dave @ ukskywatch

Editor's Note: New modern lighter than air airships could be used to carry phased array raiders. We should remember than in 1930s the dirigible Hindenberg was 820 feet long and flew the Atlantic Ocean with ease. True, it had an accident that killed some 37 lives. However these were magnificent ships and comparatively safe. In comparison train wrecks were causing almost 10,000 deaths a year. These new craft would be made from ultra light, ultra strong composite material, with surfaces looking more like conventional aircraft than the familiar blimps. Last year's Popular Mechanics article about "Stealth Blimps", and the illustration that accompanied it was probably nearer the mark than most realize! They can be made in any shape needed, such as a triangle and could carry Aegis Cruiser radar system.

Len Stringfield who died in 1994, should long be remembered as one of the great investigators into the possible of crashes UFOs. In his book, "UFO Crash? Retrievals Amassing the Evidence III" He starts off his book with the following quote: "When you have eliminated the impossible , whatever remains, however, improbable must be truth." Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

US GOVERNMENT UFO PROOF RELEASED: Audio tapes of a genuine UFO Alert at Edwards Air Force base and studied by the Foreign Technology Division at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, are now available for distribution to the public. Sam Sherman's audio documentary tape called EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE ENCOUNTER on the night of October 7, 1965, uses the actual voice recordings provided by the Air Force. During this event 12 high tech luminous UFOs invade secure air space and came down low over the runways at Edwards AFB. Tower operator Sgt. Chuck Sorrels spotted them and notified the Air Defense Command. Sgt. Sorrels is heard on the original tapes and in a new segment where he verifies the event as it is heard on the archival recordings. The UFOs are described and a decision is made to launch F-106 fighter interceptors. You are there for an important part of UFO history. Hear it for yourself, it's the best UFO tape ever made. Tape cost is $14.95 each plus $2.00 for shipping -- total $16.95 -- (for overseas orders-out of US - add $6.00 shipping cost -- total -- $20.95) you can send either a personal check or money order to: Independent International Pictures Corp, Box 565, Dept. GF, Old Bridge, New Jersey 08857.
