Larry Hatch sent me a photo of Mars from a government website. He writes, " From what looks (to me) like the upper ridges of sand dunes, and almost exclusively there, rise vertical formations that one fellow suggested was cactus. I doubt that, but I'm at a loss to find a more likely explanation. A few of them look like pine trees (which I also doubt), some look like they fell sideways, still others look like clumps of sagebrush. If there is a geological explanation, I would like to know why the formations are not larger and more numerous on the sand dunes. The web page offers no text explanation. I have been unable to find anything relevant at the Malin MSSS website. Thanks to Larry Hatch, Photo is at:

We're moving closer to Mars each day for the closest approach in decades, and 2003 is the best year to visit Mars in the next two decades. Earth and Mars are around 93 million miles apart on the same side of the Sun. We're at the nearest approach for complex orbital paths needed for successful landings. Three landing missions are planned to takeoff in June for Mars. A European and two American probes have different mission profiles, but all will attempt to find water and possibly life in Mars' ancient past. Filer's Files has reported water and possible life on Mars since 1997. The European Beagle 2 will land on the arid plain of Issidis, about 10 degrees north of the equator. It is a site chosen to be warm enough for Beagle to work and low enough for Beagle's parachutes to allow a safe landing. The two US rovers, will touch down near the equator, halfway around the planet from each other. This spectacular focus on the red planet should begin in the next five weeks, culminating after a six month journey in the rovers' expected January 2004 traffic jam. Expect amazing announcements.


A new picture from NASA's Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) spacecraft, currently orbiting Mars, shows the first-ever image of its kind not only shows Mother Earth as a tiny alien world in the vast darkness of space, but also includes Earth's moon. The camera aboard Mars Global Surveyor photographed Earth and Jupiter in an alignment, as seen in the evening sky of Mars, at 9 a.m. EDT, May 8, 2003. South America is the white area to the right with North America above it.


EAST MEADOW -- Two friends were walking outside on April 25, 2003, at 8:10 PM when they looked up at the sky and saw a grayish disked shaped flying object. The witness says, "I told my friend to look up and then we both watched it for about ten seconds than it instantly disappeared." Thanks to Peter Davenport National UFO Reporting Center


Tom Sheets State Director reports, "Our investigator's have undertaken the joint NUFORC/MUFONGA inquiry in Meriwether County. The witness interviews went well, and Jim and Olivia appeared with Peter Davenport on the national Rense Program. The Gwinnett Daily Post featured an article regarding this investigation of strange fragmented lights. The below link will carry you to the on-line GDP edition and the article. It turned out pretty nice, as have most of the past GDP stories about our group. While the AJC and Fox-5 News have also done OK with MUFONGA, give me the GDP!! Kudos to Staff Writer Laura Ingram...she certainly writes with class! I spoke with the Sheriff of Meriwether County a few days ago. He is not familiar with any other citizens that have reported such events in the county. The Sheriff stated that he would check some other sources and advise me if anything turned up. This case is mostly completed, but some minor "mop up" chores remain and will be completed shortly. "UFO Magazine" recently ran an article concerning the former highly confidential NIDS project on the "Gorman Ranch" in NE Utah, where certain events described therein, have also been reported in Georgia. These are things other than the routine UFO report. One of the NIDS physicists that worked on this secretive project was ALL EARS about a year ago when I posted the info about the S. Fulton area police officer that encountered the floating rectangle of light in his darkened bedroom (the rectangle that later fragmented into thousands of tiny pieces before vanishing). This ranch has been called a possible "portal" area by the scientists involved. Best and Semper Fi! Tom Sheets, SD


ASHLAND - On Thursday, May 1, 2003, the witness was looking out his 5th floor room in the Ashland Plaza Hotel at a developing lightning storm to his right and saw a UFO about 3:30 PM. He states, "I noticed an object about the size of a small car floating in the air over the river - I'm not sure of the altitude, but it was a little less than twice as high as the bridge." It was moving to the left, in the direction of the wind, as I could tell from the flag in front of the courthouse across the street. Although the wind was stiff, the object moved slowly in a controlled and deliberate manner, without the vagrant, flapping, unstable motion of, say, a plastic bag. Apparently, it made no sound. It was black and roughly triangular in shape. It was either changing shape in motion or rolling somehow. I thought it was a kite or a paraglider someone was flying off the back of a boat, as it was following the course of the river. That theory was shattered when it continued over the bridge. Shortly afterwards, it deviated away from the river, and me, and dwindled away to an invisible speck in the distance. It was an UFO at least as far as I'm concerned, if only for the simple fact that I couldn't identify it during the ten minutes I observed. Thanks to Peter Davenport National UFO Reporting Center


WINNEBAGO, OSHKOSH COUNTY -- UFO Wisconsin Reports by Lee B. Two recent sightings to report: May 15, 2003. My dad and I were out in his backyard with a telescope and a digital camera, watching the lunar eclipse. At some point that night, while I was star hopping with my binoculars to locate a Messier object, I saw 3 very distant shapes move across my field of view. I instantly started following it/them through the binoculars. They were so faint I knew I wouldn't be able to find them again if I looked away for even a second. My girlfriend was right next to me and I told her what I was seeing, and she said she could barely see something moving up there in the same direction. The objects appeared to me as 3 orange/red shapes, the light appearing in a ring about the object, not as a solid sphere of light. They moved steadily east, and eventually disappeared in the trees. At first glance, I was just intrigued. And I didn't think of them being odd until I saw how they moved independently! It wasn't one fixed set of lights; all 3 seemed to bob towards and away from the other while they continued on their path.

On May 20th, I was setting up my telescope; an airplane flew over my head low in the sky, heading south. Then 3 lights appeared again in the sky almost exactly at the same position I noticed them last week, except this time they were dramatically bigger. All I could do was poke my dad and point to them, and he was absolutely astonished. They were very large this time, 3 very distinct orange/red rings, like 3 Spaghettios that again were heading east over Lake Winnebago, seeming to sway and swarm about each other slightly. My dad has been an astronomer, and an aviation enthusiast since he was a teen, and he had no explanation for what he saw, at least no earthly one. After doing some research today on the web, I hadn't found anything that really resembled what I saw until I saw this site. The video clip by Jim Jordan from 7-20-02 (View video at:, near bottom of the page), shows perfectly at one point how 3 of the lights moved about each other in the same relationship that I saw. Thanks to UFO


My sister and her friends described what they saw to me on May 2, 2003, party out at her house out in the country at 3:30 AM. There were almost twenty kids there. They had set a fire in between the house and an adjacent field. The party wound down at around 2:45 in the morning. My sister who is 17, and her two friends started to clean up. They were unloading some chairs when my sister saw a figure standing a little off the driveway by the house. She motioned her friend to look; they were a little scared so they jumped into the van. Once in the van, they looked back up towards the house, and the figure was gone. My sister described it as appearing to look like maybe it was a man, and it had lighter colored, or white clothing on. Once the van was started, they all convinced each other, that the figure or person was probably E's dad just checking up on them. They then headed back down towards the fire to resume cleaning. About 3:20 AM, they headed up the driveway and into the grass, and down the hill towards the fire, which was still burning. The van's bright lights lit up "frozen things." There were strange figures or creatures or something in two separate rows. She says maybe fifteen in each row, and thirty in all. She said, "They were three feet to four feet tall." They were directly in front of the car about fifteen feet away from them. She describes them as having a Christmas light head, and that the heads were connected to the body but she couldn't see how. She says their arms were up, but she couldn't see hands. She says they were stick like. Stick people she says, dark gray or brown in color. They didn't move. Not at all she says. She says they were just frozen in these two separate rows. My sister immediately began to cry, and then both girls screamed for E to get the car moving. She peeled out and they headed to town. The girls drove around for two hours until they finally got enough courage to go back as the sun came up. She hasn't been able to sleep, or eat, and when she told us what happened she could barley finish the story because she was fighting back tears. To say that she was shaken up is an understatement. Thanks to Peter Davenport National UFO Reporting Center


ADA - The witness claims, "I did not believe in aliens, until now, when my best friend and I drove along a well-traveled highway on May 7, 2003, I saw a search light out of the corner of my eye at 9:05 PM." At first, I figured it was an airplane because it was moving through the sky and it was low, and might be landing at the airport. I really didn't pay that much attention until my best friend asked me what it was? I looked again and the object had come to a complete stop and had a searchlight of some sort. She stopped the car in the middle of the highway. The object made no sound. We continued to stare at the object. We, then, decided to turn around and come back. To turn around and drive back by the sight where we saw the object took a maximum of 45 seconds and the object was gone from sight. If the object had been a helicopter, not only could we have heard it and felt the force of the spinning propeller, but also when the helicopter flew off we would have seen it in the sky. Airplanes don't hover. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC


ARIZONA CITY On May 1, 2003, at approximately 2303 hours, in the northwest sky, I noticed what appeared to be a slow moving egg shaped star. It was moving in a southwest direction. As it reached the middle of the sky, it turned on a bright white light, which illuminated for miles. The light lasted for approximately 10 seconds, and it was instantly shut off. At this time, the craft started its ascent at a very high rate of speed and disappeared among the stars in the sky. I have seen this happen approximately 3 times in the last 2 years. Keep watching the skies. Thanks to Peter Davenport


NORTHRIDGE -- On May 7, 2003, four witnesses were playing poker when Karin noticed a UFO out the window about 10:30 PM. We got up to look out the window and realized in no way was it a plane or helicopter. The clouds were very low and we didn't know what it was. We saw this very weird thing moving from south to north. There were three green cigar shaped flying objects. First they were flying slowly, but then they separated and one flew east, the other two joined it five seconds later and they increased their speed and disappeared into the clouds. That was really scary and creepy! Thanks to Peter Davenport National UFO Reporting Center


YAKIMA - The witness reports seeing a green sphere about fifteen minutes after midnight on May 6, 2003, as he was driving south. The object was 1/2 to 3/4 the size of the moon and could have been a meteor. It came into view traveling from east to west, it then disappeared and then reappeared a split second later. Peter Davenport spoke with this witness and felt he was quite credible. The green sphere had a long trail behind it that seemed too large for a meteor. Thanks to Peter Davenport


DURRELL/TWILLINAGTE NF -- It was around 10:45 PM, on May 8, 2003, and the witness was in bed talking on the phone, when both heard the same loud noise fly over them at the same time. It sounded like a plane was in trouble and about to crash. The other person on the phone lives about five kilometers away so the noise covered a large area. The witness reports, "I got up and ran to the window and just above houses on the hill was a sort of cone or triangular shaped object. (I couldn't really tell because it was dark, this was the shape I saw in lights). The lights were red, white/yellow, and green. They were blinking and the object was quite large. It hovered for about 2-3 minutes and zoomed off quickly. It looked as if it were spinning so fast the colors of the lights combined. It vanished over the hills shortly after. There were several people who saw it: Myself, my brother, a guy from school, my father and the person I was talking to on the phone could hear it. I'm sure there were others as well, but it only happened last night and I haven't been talking to many people who are possibly witnesses. There are no military bases or airports in the area. I have seen planes and helicopters in the night's sky before but there is nothing to explain the sight I saw last night.

HOUSTON, BRITISH COLUMBIA - Investigator Brian Vike reports the sighting of a triangular shaped object around March 15, 2003, is being seen by a number of people over a two month stretch and just recently. The family, who reported this sighting, said they were caught off guard by what they witnessed. A low and slow flying triangular shaped craft cruised from the east to the west from the direction of Mount Harry Davis and continued on it's flight path over the mountains towards Grouse Mountain and the Smithers area. The object in the triangle shape was longer than wide, and very large. Also there were a number of lights which ran along the underside of it, and close to the outer edge, but rather dim. It was completely silent and dark in color. From the witnesses vantage point from their home they guessed it took the object 15 to 20 seconds before it went out of their line of sight.

HBCC UFO Note: I visited this family on the same day I met with the other folks who witnessed and reported their sighting, which was of a flying "C". Both the C shaped object and this triangle sighting come from the same area west of town. Once again we have some very credible older folks who never saw anything like this before. Many residents claim there were a large number of sightings in the last two years

MONTREAL -- On May 22, 2003, the witness reports sighting a large half ring over the skies of downtown at 3:35 PM. It did not look like a chem-trail because it was a perfect circle. The sky is somewhat overcast but the sun is definitely shining through.

Diario El Tribuno de Salta -- Ufologists recorded electromagnetic signals and radiation emanating from an underground source on May 24, 2003. Two scientists affiliated to the Fundación Instituto Biofísico de Investigaciones (FICI) headquartered in La Matanza and directed by Pedro Romaniuk, one of the most well-known analysts of the UFO phenomenon and an author of 20 books on the subject, claimed having picked up radioactive signatures, microwaves, levels of electricity and oscillations originating from the depths of the earth. Omar Hesse and Jorge Millstein surveyed the mountains surrounding Cachi last week -- 157 km from the capital and 2,280 meters above sea level. After applying a Russian tester in the vicinity of the Nevado de Cachi, they concluded that the signals are not natural in origin, and rather originate by machinery operated by intelligent beings.

"The oscillations clearly indicate that several kilometers beneath the surface there is activity: alternating electrical waves, which means a power source," said Hesse. "This could mean engines," he added. The area was not chosen at random: it was based on four film recordings made by local mountaineer Antonio Zuleta. All of them show analogous images--strange, swiftly moving lights, which appear to "plunge" into the ground at the same point. "We will have to return with equipment of higher sensitivity and equipped with depth rods to achieve greater precision in the data," observed Millstein.

However, despite the magnitude of their discovery, members of the FICI were not impressed. "It's just that this is one of the hottest areas of the planet regarding extraterrestrial activity. It's a band that stretches from La Poma to Cayafate and which has roused interest all over the world. Zuleta's recordings and the signals recorded from the depths of the earth correspond to a technology not native to our world. "To those of us in this field, the possibility that vessels may penetrate the earth is nothing new in the Andes, as depicted by numerous stone records from Ecuador to Mendoza," they concluded. The FICI organization's leader is also one of South America's better-known contactees.


NECOCHEA - Inexplicata reports that researcher Guillermo Gimenez is investigating the maneuvers of some ten UFOs flying over the Port of Necochea-Quequén.on Sunday, May 25, 2003, The eyewitness is an engineer with the Necochea Power Station, belonging to the Centrales de la Costa Atlántica S.A. (CCASA) company. He claims the objects were of considerable size, white in color and were flying between 8:20 and 8:30 hours. The objects maneuvered in absolute silence and vanished in the direction of Parque Miguel Lillo, after flying over the Necochea beach resort. Necochea is once more a constant area of UFO manifestations.

El Diario de la Pampa reports, "Raul Chaves and Ester Urban, field researchers specializing in animal mutilations pointed out that "so far this year we have accounted for some 60 mutilations in La Pampa and Buenos Aires." They noted that "thanks to the fact that they already know us and know that we research the subject, cattle ranchers inform us when mutilated animals are discovered. We then obtain samples which we send to the University of Buenos Aires and document everything on videotape." They referred to the two most recent cases -- on May 16th and 17th. The first of these took place in the "El Martin" ranch 45 km northwest of the Pampan capital and involved a year-old calf weighing 200 kgs. On the left side of its head, the absence of the outer ear was evident along with the entire inner ear, its eye, and an oval-shaped flap of skin, measuring some 30 cm. in diameter. The absence of vulva, edge of the anus, larynx, and pharynx and a segment of the trachea, as well as part of the upper muscular mass, was also noted. The second calf was found on a rural property located 30 kilometers north of Santa Rosa. It was a 2 year-old calf weighing 250 kg. missing half of its tongue with a cauterized incision and missing the left ocular orb. In both cases professionals secured samples for subsequent study and analysis. They invite those interested in the subject to visit their website at Thanks to Guillermo Daniel Gimenez, and Translation (C) 2003, Scott Corrales, Institute of Hispanic Ufology (IHU)


AMERSFOORT -- An extraordinary UFO sighting was reported on May 17, 2003, when multiple witnesses saw some strange flying objects. A 36-year-old limousine driver, took some pictures with his HP 620 digital camera. Around 13:45 he took notice of a large weird shaped object in the sky with two smaller objects beneath it. The smaller objects seemed to be under intelligent control by the larger object in some way. The object appeared to be round shaped and reasonably large. The distance between the witness and the UFOs was about 350 meters at 300-meter altitude. The strange objects were gray-black and didn't make any noise. They moved at a variable speed, about 30 km/h average, at first south, and then north. After ten minutes the UFOs disappeared over the horizon.

The witness took three pictures of the strange flying objects that showed twenty perfectly round orbs that were not noticed by the witness during the sighting. Three orbs formed a triangular formation. Experts were contacted and couldn't explain the phenomena that was displayed. In Belgium last week, an erected cross "standing" in the air was seen by 9 witnesses. Thanks to Toine Trust Site Ðutch UFO Disclosure"


BJAEVERSKOV - The witness was walking his dog and saw a very sharp white light that was a bit bigger than a big star on May 12, 2003. It was in a position almost mid way between the Moon and "Karlsvognen" at 4:23 PM. I do not know the English name. The light lasted about 5 to 10 seconds before it faded out slowly and disappeared. It was not moving away. There was no sound. I continued to look for ten minutes but it never came back.


BAKU - Hundreds of Baku residents became the witnesses of a UFO that buzzed above the city on Monday, May 19, 2003, from 5 to 7 PM, above various parts of the capital. The former city in the USSR, saw in the cloudless sky a large light stain similar in appearance to an extended "drop of milk." The object moved in a complex trajectory, according to the Ekho newspaper. At 6:35 PM, the "drop" suddenly started quickly to leave. The abnormal object has caused interest not only by the people of Baku, but also Azerbaijani experts. Professor Elchin Khalilov, chief of a commission on the abnormal phenomena at presidium of Academy of Sciences, videotaped the UFO and is studying the video.

He told to reporters. "It is already unequivocally clear, that the fixed object is not the plane, helicopter or other flying means. The UFO represents a slightly extended form and thus it is abundantly clear, that it is an object of a technical origin." The UFO hung at a height of five kilometers, and then departed to the Caspian Sea. "Its estimated size exceeds ten meters. The UFO was rather low above ground and had symmetric elements on each side."

Experts in aviation, navigation, space, and astrophysics, are investigating. Fuad Gasimov, chairman of Cosmic Seismological Department of Azerbaijan National Aero cosmic Agency says, "The appearance of UFOs is an alarm signal for people who destroy the ecosystem of our planet". As Baku Today reported, UFO appeared over Baku on January 2. Some scientists claim that UFOs were also observed before and warned about natural disasters. Mr. Gasimov stated, "UFOs hinder the prediction of earthquakes and research carried out in this field. They don't want mankind to reveal their secret." He told journalists, "It seems that UFO's will become "normal guests" for Baku inhabitants soon."


NAVAIR PATUXENT RIVER, MARYLAND - will be host to an industry day conference June 5, to discuss new technologies in the area of Hybrid Ultra Large Aircraft (HULA). This conference will be a forum to inform interested companies and individuals of the government's intent to explore hybrid aircraft technology for various military missions, especially for Tran global heavy lift. The envisioned product of this effort is a family of HULA with a 30 to 1,000 ton payload capability, which can transport outsized cargo between areas, which lack prepared reception facilities, including operations from water. Hybrid aircraft are lighter than air vehicles, which combine static lift from the buoyancy of helium gas with aerodynamic lift derived from the lifting body shape of the pressure envelope.

A feature that is vital to the perceived military utility of a HULA is its ability to operate from unprepared surfaces and without forward base support; it is not dependent upon access to runways or seaports. The program plan entails beginning with the design, construction, flight test and evaluation of relatively small 500 pound payload models which will serve to create a data base of information on aerodynamic and control characteristics and yield insights into construction techniques and operational aspects which are, to a degree, scalable up through the envisioned larger vehicles. As many as four contractors will be funded up to $2.5 million each to produce and demonstrate their individual designs with first flight goals of one year from contract award (to occur in FY-04). Additionally, the selected participants will be expected to produce conceptual pre-designs of 30 and 500 ton HULAs for which the data from their model demonstrations has application. Thanks to the US Navy.

EDITOR"S NOTE: Extremely large triangle shaped craft have been seen flying low over the US and Europe for decades. Perhaps, the Navy has decided to duplicate these craft.
