Patriotism, Traitors and Terrorism

The military has fought for over two hundred years to protect the rights of all Americans, but getting little support. Columnist Michille Malkin writes, "Once upon a time there were people in Hollywood who loved America. And when America came under attack from enemies abroad these actors, producers and screenwriters put aside their partisan differences and created movies that made you proud to be an American." Americans are dying, their heads are being cut off, because we are involved in a jihad or Moslem Holy War against infidels, unbelievers, and enemies of Islam. You ask, what is an infidel? You are likely an infidel, that is an atheist, an agnostic, a Christian, a Catholic, a Buddhist, a Jew, Mormon, New Age, or someone who is not a believer in Islam. A jihad or Moslem Holy War has been declared against you and your family, the enemy who deserve to die. Most Moslems are wonderful people who do not feel this way, but unfortunately many do. The loss of 3000 American lives in the World Trade Center, 300 Marines in Lebanon, show these people are serious and often very clever in their attacks. What the average person does not realize is that this war has been going on for over a thousand years.

We know that terrorists from Saudi Arabia, Iran, Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, and Jordan have joined the Iraqis in conducting guerrilla operations against US and allied forces in Iraq. It doesn't matter if you agree with the war in Iraq or Afghanistan; it is the way Congress voted to fight against terrorists. Thousands of jihad warriors are launching attacks against our forces killing our men each day. I previously fought in Viet Nam and Saudi Arabia and have an inkling of the motivation of the jihad forces. Because we are in Iraq, the terrorists have gathered their forces to fight there rather than in Europe, Australia, or America. They attacked us on 9/11 for a variety of reasons, but their main understanding and knowledge of the US is obtained by looking at our movies, and their moral decadence that is an affront to Islam. Probably more than any other factor is that we allow women to go to school, become educated, to drive cars and even work. Additionally, American women are not covered in veils and nudity can be seen. Our beliefs and respect of women are alien to them. Do not fool yourself, if our forces are defeated in Iraq, the jihad will quickly spread to other nations around the world. Israel, will likely be the first to fall.

Spain has already felt the terrorism of Jihad in recent months when a train was blown up. The jihad has continued for over a thousand years as the Moors overran Spain, and moved into Southern France in 718 A.D. The French King , Charles defeated the advance of Islam into Central Europe in 732 A.D. For several hundred years Spain was administered by Syria and Christian churches were made into mosques. Emperor Charlemagne of France attempted to dislodge the Islam control of Spain, but his forces were defeated and a permanent Islamic warrior camp was established on the coast of France near Nice. From this forward position, the Muslims organized raiding parties, crossed the Alps and attacked Switzerland, Italy and Germany capturing slaves and pillaging. In 977, Al Mansor, the Avenging Moor, declared jihad against Christian forces. "To his cheering troops, he invested this first campaign with histrionic significance. Their effort was merely the first skirmish in a Holy war on Christianity, the jihad. From now on, war against the Christians would be perpetual. They would not cease until every Christian had been killed or driven from the Iberian Peninsula." from the The Last Apocalypse' Page 129 by James Reston, Jr

The terrorists see the US as a soft country who will cave into terrorism because our schools, movies and TV all seek peace, and are without patriotism. The terrorists feel there is only a small group of fighters, like the Marines, who will protect the US from terrorists. They are aware there are few movies or TV programs that have taken up the cause of those who died at the World Trade Center or patriotism. In World War II, Hollywood awakened the country's fighting spirit instead of trying to stifle it. The cover of the July Cosmopolitan sums up the situation when it says, "Celeb Sexcapades, these tales of the top stars will make you wonder why they don't call it "Sleazywood." The movies are devoid of patriotism and many movies demonize government officials trying to do their job. In previous wars, Hollywood made movies to help America and its allies. I ask why they have not done so this time?

A traitor is one who betrays his country, commits treason and violates their allegiance to his country. The US Constitution Article III, Section 3 declares, "Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against them or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort." I ask my readers to evaluate their news media, their movies, and your politicians based on article III. These are not the best of times and everyone of us must decide if their actions are patriotic or treason? Hollywood patriotism is dead, and I suggest if Hollywood refuses to support America, why should we support Hollywood?

As a military officer for more than twenty years who has been to the Middle East numerous times, often for many months, I personally feel that many of the statements on TV and in the news aid our enemies. Indeed the sensational news coverage encourages the terrorists to fight on killing civilians and our military. I personally feel the military plans based on the best intelligence available were proper. A defensive plan would have resulted in the terrorists conducting increased attacks on the US, UK, Spain, Australia, Poland and other allies.

Time Magazine of July 5, 2004, as a great article called "To the Shores of Tripoli" by Chris Hitchens that states, "Within days of his March 1801 inauguration as the third President of the US, Thomas Jefferson ordered a naval and military expedition to North Africa, without the authorization of Congress, to put down regimes involved in slavery and piracy. The war was the first in which the U.S. flag was carried and planted overseas; it saw the baptism by fire of the U.S. Marine Corps—whose anthem boasts of action on "the shores of Tripoli"—and it prefigured later struggles with both terrorism and jihad.

The Barbary States of North Africa—Algiers, Tunis, Morocco and Tripoli (today's Libya)—had for centuries sustained themselves by preying on the maritime commerce of others. Income was raised by direct theft, the extortion of bribes or "protection" and the capture of crews and passengers to be used as slaves. The historian Robert Davis, in his book Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters: White Slavery in the Mediterranean, the Barbary Coast and Italy, 1500-1800, estimates that as many as 1.25 million Europeans and Americans were enslaved. The Barbary raiders—so called because they were partly of Berber origin—struck as far north as England and Ireland. It appears, for example, that almost every inhabitant of the Irish village of Baltimore was carried off in 1631.

Jefferson was appalled by the killing and slavery. The year 1784 saw the American brig Betsey, with her crew of 10, captured by a Moroccan corsair while sailing with a cargo of salt from Spain to Philadelphia. Soon after, Algerian pirates grabbed the Dauphin and the Maria on the high seas of the Atlantic and took their crews captive. Jefferson reported to the State Department and Congress. In 1794, partly moved by the letters from American sailors held in Barbary dungeons and slave pens, Congress authorized the building of six frigates, three of which—the Constitution, the United States and the Constellation—were already completed. In July 1798 funds were approved for a Marine Corps as well.

Jefferson became President in early 1801, shortly after Yusuf Karamanli, the ruler of Tripoli, unwisely issued an ultimatum to the U.S.: "If it did not pay him fresh tribute, he threatened, he would declare war on America." The new Commander in Chief coolly decided to let the ultimatum expire and take the declaration of war at face value. He summoned his new Cabinet, which approved the dispatch of a naval squadron. Over the next four years, in what Jefferson laconically described as a "cruise," the new American Navy bombarded the harbors of Algiers, Morocco and Tunis—or threatened them with bombardment—until the states gradually agreed to cease cooperating with Karamanli.

The Tripoli government, however, remained defiant and even succeeded in boarding and capturing the Philadelphia in 1803. That led directly to an episode that, as Henry Adams records in his history of the two Jefferson administrations, used to be known to every American schoolboy. In February 1804, Captain Stephen Decatur sailed straight into Tripoli harbor and set on fire the captured Philadelphia. In August 1804 he helped rescue its crew from a gruesome imprisonment, bombarded the fortified town and boarded the pasha's own fleet where it lay at anchor. In April 1805, Captain William Eaton put together a mixed force of Arab rebels and mercenaries and American Marines, and in a maneuver that has since been compared to that of the charismatic T.E. Lawrence, led a desert march from inland that took Tripoli's second city, Derna, by surprise. Lieut. Presley O'Bannon of the Marine Corps hoisted the Stars and Stripes over the captured town, and the Marine anthem preserves his gesture to this day. Snip. See Time Magazine

Mars – Dome Closeup

Norman Bryden writes, "This JPL image shows one of the most remarkable structures I have seen on Mars and there is what looks like an enormous dome structure over a metropolis of many modern looking structures." There are buildings of all kinds, flat sides, sharp corners and other structures that have a styled look to them. Most of the buildings are in good shape and look they could be recent as well as ancient. The dome has transparent qualities, and the sides of the dome can be seen at the bottom of the image and around the geometric perimeter of the enclosure. The center has many building shaped structures and roads leading away to the outer edge sections. The road, path or corridors that lead away from the center enclosure near the top seem to go beneath the dome edge where there are other building structures, subterranean looking entrances and walls.

On the left there is what seems to be a huge bridge or overpass structure. Some of the walls and edges have a modern curve to them. All of this seems to say something about the Martians spiritually. They wanted to be seen and they have an appreciation for aesthetics. The Martian species are a subterranean species as well as an open, visually modern society that seems to be able to coexist with success. This gives us hope of one day possibly having open peaceful contact. Thanks to Norman Bryden. Storm

Sunspots – Highest in a 1,000 years

A new analysis shows that the Sun is more active now than it has been at anytime in the previous 1,000 years. Scientists based at the Institute for Astronomy in Zurich used ice cores from Greenland to construct a picture of our star's activity in the past. They say that over the last century the number of sunspots rose at the same time that the Earth's climate became steadily warmer.

Spacewalk Coverage Inexplicably Pre-Empted

Jeff Challender – Director Project P.R.O.V.E writes, "On the 30th of June 2004, ISS crewmen Gennady Padalka and Mike Fincke exited ISS (International Space Station) from the Russian built PIRS airlock module wearing Russian made Orlan space suits with a combination of American and Russian equipment. The mission to replace a failed circuit breaker powering the control moment gyroscope was successful. There had been an unsuccessful attempt to perform this space walk on 24 June, but this one had been cancelled after only 14 minutes, due to an incorrect valve setting on Astronaut Fincke's space suit oxygen system. This event WAS covered live.

In the days and weeks leading up to the space walk, during NASA's daily TV coverage of ISS activities, it was announced again and again that a 6 hour EVA (Extra-Vehicular Activity) would be broadcast live in its entirety. Even as late as 11 AM CDT, on 30 June, this was the case. The coverage was to begin at 3:30 PM CDT, and the EVA to start at 4:40 PM CDT, with the opening of the airlock hatch to the vacuum of space. When 3:30 arrived, NASA was running its "Education Hour", a program designed for grade school students. Not a particularly high priority show. At 4 PM there was a press conference with Cassini scientists. Later, there were a series of live interviews with scientists associated with the Cassini probe. These were strange affairs in which the scientists were obviously being asked questions verbally, which the viewer could not hear. Then the scientist would give an answer to the unheard questions. It was like being in a room listening to someone carry on a telephone conversation. Because one could not make sense out of half the conversation, it was valueless to the viewer. Certainly not a reason to pre-empt the space walk.

On the NASA Select TV web page, the reason given for this sudden change, made sometime within a 4.5-hour window, was to cover the orbital insertion of the Cassini probe around the planet Saturn. However, this event was not to take place until much later that night, around Midnight CDT. It was stated that the EVA was available on an alternate satellite frequency, available ONLY to those with non-subscription satellite dishes and the proper sort of receiving equipment. There was no logical excuse for this change, UNLESS one takes into account the anomalies observed during the last space walk from ISS, broadcast live on 25 February 2004. There was PLENTY of time for NASA to broadcast BOTH events. I personally see this as fear on the part of NASA officials. They are afraid of what the public might see. So they resorted to very suddenly canceling live coverage of the space walk. Instead we were treated to some 7 hours or so of uninspiring "filler".

What was eventually seen of the space walk were highly edited clips, taken apparently at random, over the next few days. Naturally, if there were any anomalies seen, such as in the 25 February EVA, they were certainly edited out of the version released to the public. We the people PAY for NASA's budget!! We have a RIGHT to see what they are doing with it. These erstwhile "public servants" are treating you and me like children. I, for one, don't like it at all! © 2004 Jeff Challender – Director Project P.R.O.V.E.

New Hampshire - Yellow Orange Red Sphere.

BOW -- It started as a yellow orange and red blinking light moving up and down and side to side at 9:30 PM, on June 21, 2004. The lights were not making much movement until all of the sudden it started to move up very quickly. It then started moving east still blinking until it was almost right over us. The shape could be made out as a sphere with blinking rotating lights on the sides. The rate at which it moved across the sky was incredibly fast. It soon became out of sight as it had moved right. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

New York - Saucer and Flash

RICHMOND HILL – The witness was on the phone and saw a bright red light at 9:30 PM, on June 21, 2004, and thought the light was coming from outside. He states, "The object looked round like a disk and was so bright that its light was beaming below the craft making the object look kind of like a jellyfish with it's body hanging below it." The bright light lasted for about three seconds. About two minutes later I saw a clearer craft. It was the same shape and the lights were even brighter red. Both objects seemed far away, but very visible. The second craft kind of floated around wobbling like it didn't know where to go and then it just disappeared very fast. It was like one minute it was there so clearly and the next it was gone. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

NIAGARA FALLS -- Pattie Eagan writes, "We visited Niagara Falls last night [June 26] and while we were driving back to Buffalo, approaching the Grand Island bridge about 10:50 PM, I observed a streak of light with a tail three inches long." It had a head like a comet, kind of square the size of a pea, white bright. In front of this main light with the tail, was another faint light with a very faint tail. There was the main comet-looking light with the tail with what appeared to be two escort lights. These lights were brighter than anything I had ever seen in the night before. I watched it for about 45 seconds to 1 minute go across the sky. My husband was in the Marine Corps for 24 years and has never seen anything like it. He said there is an airbase but these were not aircraft, and they were moving too slow for a shooting star, and way too fast and close for a comet. They were fairly close like the height of an aircraft in our atmosphere. We knew it was some sort of craft because it was moving like one. It was really an awesome sight, extremely bright. Thanks to Pattie Eagan

Pennsylvania – Metal Hula Hoop

POLAND – Marilyn Ruben writes, " Dad's cousin and I had a possible UFO sighting on Wednesday, June 30 around 8:30 p.m. driving on state route 224 near the Ohio border." We were returning after a long awaited trek to the old family homestead, so mentally, we were quite alert. I was driving and Eileen was in the passenger seat. The weather was in the 70's, and sunny. Evening was approaching, as I noticed about a dozen low flying puffs of what at first appeared to be bonfire smoke blowing above the street from south to north at a height of about 3x that of the farmhouses. Then I realized the smoke was too white to be smoke, and decided it must be very low wisps of clouds. That was when I noticed a solid metal rounded gray ring floating along with the wispy clouds. I asked Eileen if she could see the metal ring, and she indicated she could. We were both amazed and wondered how a metal ring could float over the road without falling down out of the sky? Ironically, Eileen who is a serious skeptic, was the first to ask if this could be a UFO?

The ring had the appearance of a very thick metal "hula hoop" and was the size of two or three fingertips at arm's length. I quickly asked my teenage daughter sitting in the back seat to snap a picture of this, but she said she could not see anything. Meanwhile, Eileen and I watched this light gray circular object which had a distinct dark edge to it, but which was totally transparent inside the circular area because the real clouds higher up in the sky shone through it. The object seemed to be periodically bending in on the side away from us, but that could have been caused by gravity distorting the light waves giving it the appearance of bending. When it went out of my visual range over to Eileen's side of the car, she said it vanished into thin air. Thanks to Marilyn Ruben

West Virginia – UFO's Play Tag

WHEELING -- It looked like a small star, but it was moving at speeds that were impossible at 10:43 PM, on June 19, 2004. It was all over the sky like it was playing tag with the stars and would fade out and then comeback it did that for about a whole minute. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Michigan - Five Oblongs

HOLLY – The witness was driving his mother-in-law home when I spied a reflection in the very upper 1/4 of his windshield that followed them me on June 19, 2004, just after 1 AM. I kept trying to see if it was a reflection from a street light but even when I was not near any lights it was still there. She looked up and forward and he states, "I saw quick flashes of light dance ahead of me, there were five that appeared to be lighted oblong shaped clouds moving overhead just above the Holly donut shop." Gradually their number dwindled down to four and then three. And they would go strictly in a plain circular motion for awhile and then they would start to dip and dive. It looked as if they were chasing each other. It looked like they may have been playing but their movements were smooth, graceful and beautiful to watch. The air was thick and hazy and there was not a cloud or star in the sky. My mother-in-law saw the same as I saw. There was a pay phone right next to my jeep so I called my husband. When I first picked the receiver up before even placing any quarters into the slot I heard this terrible static that was very loud. When I placed the quarters into the slot I still heard the static. I tried 3 times and on the third try I was able to get thru. My husband was able to make it in time to see what his mother and I were witnessing. I had him bring my camera but the pictures came out black with nothing in them. We watched them some more and then they hovered together and disappeared...poof! Into thin air. If they were not UFOs I do not know what else they could be? Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Ohio – Triangle and Silver UFO

COLUMBUS -- Three lights in a triangle shape that eventually lined up and moved farther away until we couldn't see them any more at 1:02 AM, on June 19, 2004. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

NEWARK --- Driving home from work, on Route 16 going west at 4:12 PM, on June 21, 2004, the witness noticed a strong flash behind and above an airplane in a clear blue sky. It looked as if someone flashed a mirror. The observer states, "When I focused on the object it looked silver (like the sun reflecting off highly polished chrome) of no discernable shape about the size of 1/2 a tic-tac mint held at arm's length." I also observed an airplane, which was about the size of an aspirin held at arm's length-below the object and to the left. The object was well past the tail of the airplane, 1 1/2" thumb to forefinger held at arm's length from object to airplane. The total observation time was 3 to 5 seconds. ((NUFORC Note: Heavens-above website does not indicate that the flash from an Iridium satellite would have been visible at the time indicated by the witness. PD)) Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

FOSTORIA -- George Ritter took this video of a UFO that appears to land behind the farm last week.

Wisconsin – Maneuvering Bright Objects

ONALASKA – On June 22, 2004, a professional couple with excellent reputations were sitting on their patio facing east when they noticed a large bright object proceeding north at a rapid, steady pace. The object faded, then disappeared when it reached about the center point of the skyline. Moments later, three smaller objects were observed moving in irregular patterns in small regions of the sky surrounding the spot where the first object disappeared. The objects were solid and light reflective and about the altitude commercial jets fly. These were no ordinary craft as they changed both altitude and range in jerky and sometimes shaky motions. They exhibited zigzag patterns, back and forth motions, rounded or circular fire-fly like flight patterns. They changed directions at will and at an incredible speed. They were capable of hovering, then traveling at several thousand miles per hour and making a 180 degree turns. They flew in just one area with a haze around them and no sound could be heard. I brought my wife and 18 year old daughter outside and they too sat in chairs and agreed that they saw the objects and that there was irregular, freakish, awesome movement. We then began noticing that several bigger, brighter objects were traveling across the sky. Two flew north together while others flew south. Later, many smaller objects, all with jerky, rocking, up-down, fire-fly, flew at incredibly fast speeds. My wife found it important to rationalize these away as military aircraft defending us from terrorists. Duration: 75 minutes. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Iowa - Craft Changes Colors

AMES – The witness writes, "My aunt and I were looking at Venus, at 9:58 PM, on June 21, 2004, when my aunt saw a red, blue, and white flashing object appear that seemed to have come from Venus." It was conjoined with a second object just like it and flew south in a zigzag pattern, then north again. As I was watching my aunt saw a second object come from Venus again that moved the same as the first. Since the trees were again blocking our view, we moved east. The first object descended somewhere to the north of us while the second one headed west and descended also and might have landed. There was no vapor or jet stream from either object. The objects made no sound. We think both objects landed either in town or the outskirts of town. One of my aunt's friends also saw a disk shaped craft on June 16, in Ames.

ALBIA – Two friends were camping in a tent in my backyard around 10 PM, on June 20, 2004, looking at the stars through the air vent at the top of the tent. They saw a red light they thought was a plane, but it faded to white, and then bright blue. It was not one big light, but several little lights in the shape of a triangle. We watched it dart across the sky and then hover for a few minutes. It looked like it was rotating, and then it appeared round. Its lights would change from red to white as it spun. After a few minutes of hovering it shot up even higher into the sky. It hovered there for awhile, and we went inside to go tell my mom. When we returned the lights were gone. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Texas -Two Star-Like Objects

ROUND ROCK -- An amateur astronomer who spends a fair amount of time watching the sky was sitting in his driveway about 4:30 AM, on June 20, 2004, when he noticed a bluish colored star like object moving rapidly north. He assumed it was a satellite, until it began to make a swing towards the northeast. By the time he returned with 8 x 50 binoculars, it was gone. Roughly one minute later, a second, similar object appeared on the same trajectory. Through binoculars, it looked like a satellite or star. The second object also turned slowly toward the northeast, dimming slightly. Initial brightness of both objects was zero to first magnitude. The impression was of very fast moving objects at great altitude. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

SAN ANTONIO – Two co-workers were leaving the hospital medical center at 3:45 PM, on June 22, 2004, when they saw something fairly high in the sky that looked like a Mylar balloon. One witness was retired military and had flown different types of aircraft. The object hovered and rotated in the blue sky with some fluffy white clouds. Occasionally, it would catch the sun's reflection and blend in with the blue sky. We were facing south and the wind was coming from a westerly direction. Twice this object made sharp rapid movements to the west and stopped and continued to hover. We both stood and watched for about ten minutes and agreed that this was no plane, helicopter, or blimp. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Arizona - Video Clips of Lights

AVONDALE – Brian Vike HBCC UFO Research reports, "The observer got some video of strange moving lights taken with his Canon Elf in the wind who states, "My girlfriend and I were witness to string of 17-20 lights. On June 16th I got my video camera out and got some night video. Two lights then five, then back to two moved slowly behind the Estrella Mountains. One burned out then reappeared above where it started. We live in Avondale which is to the west of Phoenix, 2.8 miles to the west is Goodyear airport, 18 miles north is Luke Air Force Base. Now the base already made a statement of not dropping any flares on that day. You will hear on that news clip that the military have been trying to fly planes near them, but the lights go out. A plane with a flashing FAA light goes through the video between me and the activity about 34 seconds through the tape. The video clips shown are ©2004M from Di Silvestro. You can see the Video Clips, but please respect the gentleman's copyright as he is kind enough to share the clips with us all. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research

California - Formation of Lights

BREA, ORANGE COUNTY – The witness was driving west on Imperial Highway at 10:15 PM, on June 20, 2004, when he was startled to see a formation of lights gently angling from the southeast to the northwest, and then northeast. There were about seven lights making up the south-lying line, and one or two making up the north-lying line. There seemed to be one light at the tip, that was like seeing a marquee and tip of a triangle pointing and moving in the same direction as my car. The color of the lights was uniform - a pinkish gold, similar to street or parking lot lights. The size of each light was not impressive - about the size of a light from an airplane or jet. It was the formation of these lights that was startling. The lights moved completely uniformly, causing me to think that they formed the perimeter of a dark triangular or arrow-shaped object in the sky. I phoned my brother who suggested I retrace my steps. I retraced my path, but the light formation in the sky was gone, nor could I see how any reflections or glare could explain them. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

SANTA MARIA – The witness saw two stars to the right of the crescent moon about as bright as Venus that he knew didn't belong there. At 8:30 PM, on June 22, 2004, he got out his 4-1/2 reflector telescope, but could not find them so he ran to get his binoculars. He reports, "The objects did not twinkle like stars; they were just solid steady lights that had moved apart just a little." He tried to find them with his telescope, but they were gone by 8:40 PM, he noticed Jupiter was visible, but the objects had disappeared. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Canada - Circular Craft

TORONTO – Two roommates were sitting on their patio having a smoke, enjoying the night sky at 12:50 AM, on June 23, 2004, when above they noticed a large circular craft, glowing whitish, traveling at a great speed, and making some incredible turns. The witness states, "I live downtown and noticed a base-ball sized dimly glowing circular object in the sky directly above my house. The dim white light passed directly over us, moving in west along DuPont Avenue making a number of amazing turning maneuvers and moving at a seemingly incredible rate. After about twelve seconds it was on the western horizon no longer visible. This was something I had never seen before. Thanks to Brian Vike

Chile: UFO Flap

Llay-Llay -- Several UFOs flew and executed pirouettes before daybreak June 30 2004, some 60 kilometers northeast of Santiago, where they were photographs by Juan Serey, 37, who was driving a pickup truck toward the capital. The witness told La Cuarta, "It was incredible. I was driving southward when I suddenly noticed several powerful lights moving swiftly and hanging in the sky. It was spectacular and lasted ten minutes," remarked the mechanical engineer so he had enough time to whip out his Sony Cybershot 3.2 megapixel camera, and take several photos. "The lights were suspended some 50 meters over the mountaintop. A large light opened up and seven or ten would gather, adopted various shapes, would rearrange themselves and then take off at a prodigious speed, zigzagging and vanishing in a matter of seconds," said Juan.

PUNTA ARENAS,.- A strange luminous object was seen in the skies of the capital city of Chile's 12th Region on June 29, 2004, and for five days. Radio Polar, the local radio station, had its telephone switchboard collapse due to the volume of calls received from the UFO witnesses. The Office of Aeronautics reported that it lacked official records on the strange luminous bolide, making it clear that it was neither an airplane nor a helicopter. They did not, however, confirm that it was a UFO. Alfredo Vera, correspondent for Radio Polar, managed to take photos of the object that was witnessed by a large number of people who had gathered to watch.

In June 1968, two pilots of Aerolineas Argentinas and 18 passengers witnessed a shiny red cylinder "flying saucer" over Punta Arenas. Incredible film footage was obtained in 2003, showing 3 UFOs separating and joining near a Chilean military base. UFO's were sighted over the cities of Lanco and Petrohue on June 15, and over Ovalle on the 19th. Thanks to: Scott Corrales, Institute of Hispanic Ufology Translation (c) 2004. SOURCE: Planeta UFO

Israel - Strong Light

HAIFA -- The witness was sitting in his window at his house in Kiryat Bialik, when he saw a flying light above Carmel Mountain at a quarter after midnight on June 20, 2004. It was something like 80 meters above the mountain, and flew for ten seconds before it disappeared. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Australia – Fast Lights

DEVON MEADOWS, VICTORIA – The witness was out walking when a weird shaped object hovered above his head at 1:02 AM, on June 19, 2004. He states, "It was a bright light that took off as soon as I looked up. It was going so fast that I could only watch it fly though the sky for about three seconds." It was very bright and changed color as it went thought the sky. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

SATURN-RINGS and Strange Anomalous Object Center Right

N00006491.jpg was taken on July 01, 2004 and received on Earth July 01, 2004. The camera was pointing toward SATURN-RINGS at approximately 127,127 kilometers away, and the image was taken using the CL1 and CL2 filters. This image has not been validated or calibrated. A validated/calibrated image will be archived with the NASA Planetary Data System in 2005. In sucessive images the object appears to move. Thanks to R. David Anderson
