Mexico petroglyph of space craft?

This is a 7000 year petroglyph discovered in the province of Querato, Mexico in 1966. You can see four figures with their arms outstretched below a large oval object radiating what appear to be beams of light. Thanks to Mathew Hurley

The purpose of these files is to report weekly the UFO eyewitness and photo/video evidence that occurs on a daily basis around the world and in space. Many people claim it is impossible for UFOs to visit Earth, I ask you only to keep an open mind and watch the evidence we accumulate each week. These Files make the assumption that extraterrestrial intelligent life not only exists, but my hypothesis is that of the over one hundred UFOs reported each week many represent a factual UFO sighting

Articles this week include: Mexico petroglyph and Mars may have life. UFOs were seen over Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Kentucky, Idaho, Maine, Massachusetts, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Utah, Virginia and Washington. Sightings were also reported in Australia, Belize, Canada, France, Mexico, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

Mars fossils match those on Earth

Arkaleus writes: When you gaze upon these fossils for the first time, a crucial question appears. How did these life forms come to be on TWO planets at roughly the same time? How else does life move from one place to another, except by migration or transplantation?

Perhaps one of the most incredible fossils I found on this site was that of the squid. It is undeniably a squid, even to the most skeptical interpretation it has too many symmetries and geometrical similarities to a squid to be discounted. A squid can't jump very far, let alone leap the millions of miles needed to move from Mars to Earth.

This invites a marvelous fiction to develop within the mind. Either evolution is a totally misrepresented science, and life develops upon templates that are pre-existing and innate to matter itself, or somebody moved these life forms between the worlds by design. This would seem to indicate the presence of a vastly ancient intelligence responsible for a kind of cosmic gardening in this solar system. Not impossible, and wonderfully reassuring for such a lonely species as our own.

Who were these beings? Did they move Martian life forms to earth, long ago, to avoid their extinction on Mars; a planet fated to lose its ability to support life? This would explain why so many sea creatures are so alien to other life forms on this world: They ARE alien life forms.

These fossils tell us a lot more than just the existence of aquatic life on Mars. They are the empirical evidence of the gods themselves, those beings science has safely put away from themselves as fables of the ancients. Nothing BUT an intelligent undertaking could transplant all these species between two vastly separated worlds. This may indicate that life may not be native to this solar system at all, that it may in fact be imported, much like a gardener must import seeds to his own soil, to put in what was not there before.

This discovery may be the catalyst for a whole new era of creationism, a true science, and may indeed be the first empirical evidence of god we as a species have ever encountered. Thanks to Arkaleus and Sir Charles W. Shults

Alaska saucer-like craft flies northwest

JUNEAU -- The sun was setting, the witness was looking northwest at the Gastineau Channel on April 23, 2005, at 6:30 PM, when he saw an object moving northwest. The object was a saucer shape and was much smaller than a commercial airplane. It was bright, from reflected sunlight. I assumed that it was metallic, and its color was probably silver. The object moved in a straight line, with some tilting on its axis from one side to the other. Its motion was quick, and silent and I watched it until it was too small to see. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director,

Arkansas disk spotted

FT. SMITH – The witness reports seeing six circular objects at 9:31 PM, on April 26, 2005, at the I-540 bridge which connects Crawford & Sebastian counties. They split into pairs, with two flying west, two flew north, and two went south. The lights rotated in circular pattern, with one center light. There was no sound. The lights blinked in a clockwise motion, then went out except for one in the center, that looked like a star. She could still make out a shape, because they only appeared to be about 2000 feet high.

Three circular objects were seen five miles east of Mulberry, over the Arkansas River going west at 10:15 PM having no sound. When she got to work, one was just to the south-east of her and hovering somewhere near the airport. Then suddenly a National Guard jet took off from the airport, and search lights came on around the airport. & the lights disappeared. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director,

California Cylinder

NORTH HILLS – The witness looked north and saw two cylinder shaped objects on April 19, 2005, at midnight. They were traveling north at a slow speed, and suddenly disappeared. The objects were gray in color. No other things were observed. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director,

SONORA -- Mark A. Olson, D.M.writes, “On May 1, 2005, I looked out my front window and saw a bright disk-shaped object moving very slowly over the trees, heading North. I ran back inside to grab my camcorder, but didn't have time to grab the tripod.

I managed to catch the object for approximately 45 seconds before losing sight of it behind a tree. The object was large and bright silver-white. I've attached a video clip of the object for your perusal”. Thanks to Mark A. Olson, D.M.

Delaware Light over General Motors plant

WILMINGTON -- I was out doing carts for Acme Markets in Delaware when I looked up over the GM plant and saw a plane on April 19, 2005, at 9 PM, and spotted a green light flying west away from the plant. He states, “I heard no sound as the light switched from green to pink to amber as it continued east toward Elsmere.” It proceeded to shoot up, hover, and then accelerate to the west at a high rate of speed where I lost it. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director,

Connecticut triangle with three lights

ANSONIA – The witness observed a row of lights hovering at a low altitude of about only 200 feet above the ground on May 5, 2005 at 8:30 PM. The witness pulled off the highway, and doubled back, as the object silently and slowly moved over the horizon. It did not make a sound. White lights were on each corner of the triangle. The lights pulsated slowly, and slightly. While crossing it's path, the middle light began to move. The witness discovered that object was far larger than helicopter dimensions. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director,

Florida triangular object

FLORAL CITY – The observer was out having a late night swim in the pool on a beautiful 73 degree night, when he noticed an object approaching from the north flying south fast towards Tampa at 10:45 PM, on April 29, 2005. I watched it fly overhead - bright white lights at the three corners of the triangle and a blinking red light in the "belly." Traveling fast - at arm's length it would take a tennis ball to cover the object. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director,

PLANT CITY – The witness reports sighting two objects that at first appeared to just be stars were moving in two different formations in the night sky. At 10:33 PM, I looked toward the constellation Gemini, and I did a double take because two stars appeared to be moving from west to east. One was following directly behind the other the distance between two fingers making a "victory" sign. The second light moved south and caught up with the front light and they continued to proceed east.

JUPITER -- Craft appeared hovering initially with a stream behind it. Rear configuration of lights which appeared star-like changed position/direction at 9:30 PM. Three distinct lights circled by halo followed, leading watcher to conclusion that craft had changed direction and was moving away. It was quickly out of sight.

((NUFORC Note: We assume that the witnesses were describing the launch of a Titan IV missile out of Cape Canaveral, which occurred at 20:55 hrs. (Eastern) on this date. The missile apparently was launched to the northeast, so it was visible along the eastern shoreline of the US. PD))

Kentucky black oval object observed

BOWLING GREEN -- I am a Christian, and I work in a professional environment and am telling you the truth. The observer was traveling home from work driving down Russellville Road on April 16, 2005, at 5 PM, and saw a perfectly round bright black object sitting high up in the sky. It was completely round and solid black, and it seemed like it was not moving at all. It was a basketball sized round black object sitting stationary in the sky. It was definitely far away and very high up in the sky. If this was a balloon of some sort then why was it black? Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director,

Idaho a missile "suspended" below jet

SANDPOINT – The observer saw a white missile-shaped object, about five-sixths of the length of the plane, suspended beneath the body of the plane on May 10, 2005 at 5 PM.. There is a mountain of 2000' that is the background for the view, dark rock and evergreens. The weather was clear, and the sighting was to the north of my house, an unobstructed view , and about one mile away. The plane was very quiet- usually the jets are much noisier! The plane looked gray in contrast to the really slender white missile shaped. There were no lights or markings.
My DVD player stopped working about 30 seconds before I saw the plane.

((NUFORC Note: Peter Davenport, We wonder whether the witness might have observed a USAF AWACS (E-3A) aircraft, or some other type of military aircraft. Just a guess. PD))

Maine oval seen for ten minutes.

WATERBORO -- On April 29, 2005, the witness spotted two bright lights overhead, one emitting three rays of light and then, a circle of light around it passing west to east at a high altitude at 9:45 PM for ten minutes. The satellite looking object was somewhat brighter and was traveling west to east at the apparent altitude of a satellite. It suddenly emitted a stream of misty light out of both sides toward the rear of the object, and shortly after a misty light out of the front of it in the direction of its travel. These three lights continued for a couple of seconds and went out. Then the object was encircled with a white misty light continuing on its way toward the horizon. A second object appeared overhead traveling the same altitude and direction about 5 miles behind the first. Both objects continued over the horizon. My home is 30 miles from Portland Maine airport where I work for the FAA as a technician. I see arrivals and departures over my house all the time. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director,

Massachusetts spectacular rectangle seen

ROCKPORT -- A MUFON investigator called his mother to chat and to let her know that there would be a bright high pass of the International Space Station (ISS) at 8:46 PM. At about 8:24 PM, she said in an excited voice that 'she saw it and oh my God it is so big,' etc. I told her it was too early for the ISS, but she insisted and said it was no satellite or meteor.

She said the object was the shape of a rectangular box. It was bright yellow with no other lights and was flying south as if some intelligence were guiding it. It was not drifting aimlessly or shooting like a meteor. She said she did not notice any physical effects in her body, but I heard an uncharacteristic agitation in her voice. The object came from the north at about 30 degrees when she first noticed it. Mom held a 3" by 5" box in her hand and said that is how large it appeared in the sky with the luminescence as bright as the moon. The highest elevation observed was approximately 75 degrees.

There was a small plane and a jet that flew in the same direction. She went to the kitchen window to see it again and it vanished. It was a clear night, so it either sped up or just disappeared.

The Heavens-Above website gives observation times within a second. I am submitting this report for my mother who is 76 years young in possession of all of her faculties. I am a MUFON investigator. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director,

New York red almond shaped objects

CONSTABLEVILLE – The witness saw two red colored almond shaped objects that looked like eyes. on April 22, 2005, at 12 PM. He was standing outside looking up at dark sky and saw a shooting star. The witness saw an almond shaped red light rise above the trees about 1/2 mile away and stayed there. Then another red light, rose up from the treeline. It looked like two very large almonds and stayed for about 20 seconds. Then the right side went down into the trees and disappeared, followed by the left side of the 'eyes'. It was very scary. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director,

Missouri white light in the sky

ST. LOUIS – The witness was standing in the street talking to a few friends on April 14, 2005, at 8:52 PM, and saw three straight dots in the sky. There was a bright light in the western sky that started moving, slowed a little and then started up again. We watched as it flew at a high rate of speed, slowed down and went in its exact opposite direction. As it did this it did get too much further from us when it seemed to be moving slower again, but this time it got dimmer and dimmer. After this I saw two F-15 fighters just fly out, and then I called 911 to find out what had happened, they referred me to Scott Air Force Base, who directed me to Peter Davenport. Thanks to

Nevada disk

LAS VEGAS -- Looking north of the city the witness a retired nurse saw a gray disc moving erratically on April 18, 2005, at 1 PM. She was sitting in her backyard when she saw a charcoal grayish colored round disc (saucer) to the north flying from west to east. The object seemed slightly wider on the bottom. The total time of the sighting was about a minute or slightly less. It began to drift side to side descending some as it did. Then it moved at a steady upward slight incline and vanished! Shortly, what she thought were military jets flew through that area with two in front and one behind, from east to west.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness via telephone, and she seemed exceptionally objective and lucid to us; we suspect that she is a very good witness. PD))

New Jersey small silver cigar

MONMOUTH COUNTY – The observer states, “I was on Route 35 in Monmouth County with my father on April 16, 2005, at 3 PM, when I noticed a small silver cigar or disk shaped object in the sky.” It was gleaming in the sun very brightly, and was moving pretty quickly. I watched about six seconds, then, it disappeared in the cloudless sky, and then two seconds later, it showed up again, and then disappeared as fast as it appeared. I asked my father if he saw it and he said he didn’t notice. I’m almost positive it wasn’t a plane. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director,

North Carolina photos from Alan Caviness:

DAVIDSON COUNTY -- These two pictures were taken by a colleague of mine with a 3.0 megapixel digital camera at 5 PM, on March 23, 2005 during a period of stormy weather. Approximately 10 miles to the north, residents were put on alert at this time for possible tornado activity in a strong storm band traveling from west to east. The dark clouds in these pictures were part of the southern edge of the storm front. The object was not visible to the UFO field investigator who took the photos. This is a site for frequent UFO activity and is being monitored regularly. Only 12 days earlier, I had shot nighttime UFOs from the same property. Some of them were small, round shapes with color. In most cases, the UFOs in this area are invisible but can be detected by digital cameras with their infrared sensitivity.

The investigator who shot these pictures believes that UFOs in the area are attracted to thunderstorms and "feed" off the energy generated by them. Thanks to Alan Caviness, Field Investigator - central North Carolina who has put together a great CD of close to 100 other photographs shot from this geographical area. These are available on CD for new subscribers to Filers Files.

Ohio birds and UFOs -

FOSTORIA - Several people have commented that George Ritter's VHS videos could be birds or insects. George frequently gets video of birds and insects that are on multiple frames in the video. Generally the UFOs which travel much faster are on only one or two frames of the video. The top photo shows typical UFOs while the bottom is a bird. UFOs were taken on 10 May 2005, at 6 PM. Thanks to George Ritter.

Pennsylvania disk

CHELTENHAM – The witness was walking his dog at 11 PM, on April 29, 2005, when he noticed a large circular flying object which was lit up with a glow flying in his direction. Within 10 seconds it quickly changed direction and within another 5 seconds it was gone. The object was large and moved from one direction to another quickly. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director,

Utah triangle and flexible mass

SALT LAKE CITY -- My friends and I were camping pretty deep into little Cottonwood Canyon on April 10, 2005, at 2:37 PM. We were laying down and thought we saw a bluish flash to the east without any sound. So we got up to take a look and we didn’t go far, and in a clearing there was a dark mass floating in the air. It was more or less flat and it seemed round but its entire mass did not move in unison. It sort of rippled but not in any coherent pattern. On the bottom surface there was a constant activity of blue flashes freckled across the object. We all noticed the air felt very cold and moist and like static. Finally, some pieces fell off the object. They sprinkled off and shimmered as they fell to the ground. Then the object left slowly but the actual movement seemed imperceptible. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director,

Virginia - Missile shaped craft

MECHANICSVILLE/AYLETT – The witness saw a missile shaped craft, estimated at three car lengths long or about sixty feet long on April 24, 2005, at 9:45 PM. The craft had a cone nose which was dark in color, and the body was plain silver/metal. There were no noticeable features along the body of the "cylinder." The body is estimated to have a diameter similar to an H2 (Hummer) from side to side (door to door). The tail had two red lights and one white that were blinking, but not in sync. No wings were visible. The witness was driving towards Aylett, VA down the Mechanicsville Turnpike. The lights seemed mounted to a propulsion mechanism. The craft moved with the traffic towards Mechanicsville, at an estimated 60 miles an hour, hovering just above tree level estimated at 35 feet. The craft was spotted near the Hayne's Boat company which has lots of lighting making the body of the craft quite visible. The craft emitted no sound. Once the craft had supposedly moved in rear-view, it was not visible in rear or side view mirrors. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director,

Washington disk

CAMAS, Vancouver -- The observers, a young married couple, in their mid-20's, witnessed a congregation of unknown craft, east of their home at 1:20 AM, on April 19, 2005. My wife noticed a star-like object swaying in the distance, through our bedroom window. It was extremely clear that evening and the moon was very bright. The witness states, “We both got out of bed to get a closer look, when we noticed three+ objects, all emitting what looked like red and green light.” Not believing what we were seeing, several other craft came into view to the north of us. We witnessed strange and rapid movements, and light emissions. After 10 minutes, I grabbed our video camera and started filming. We switched off, capturing 20-30 minutes of footage. We filmed interaction between the craft and obscure individual movement of 2-3 of them. Viewing the objects through the video lens allowed us to see much greater detail and some great close-ups were captured. My wife believes she saw this same bright object the following night. However as she turned on the video camera and started to focus on it, the video camera shut off. She tried a second time, and the video camera shut off again. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director,

Australia disk

TOWNSVILLE – The observers report seeing a circular saucer type craft with lights flashing in a rotary circular fashion at 8:13 PM, on April 28, 2005. They were driving south on the East Coast on a perfectly clear night, when they saw a UFO ahead and to my right hand side of the road. It was saucer in shape with flashing lights on the underside of the craft. The lights flashed in a rotary circular fashion. It was hovering at no more than 100 feet above the field, then, suddenly it completely disappeared. I was lost for words at the sight and could not speak until after the craft vanished. I then asked my passengesr if they had seen it, they had.

COOBER PEDY -- Keith Douglass reports that a local chap of Coober Pedy in central Australia was lucky enough to record these images of an alleged UFO craft on April 15, 2005, at around 10.30 PM, on a Friday night.

The wittiness said he went outside and noticed a orange light and a white light over the northwest near the horizon. The orange light appeared to move, so he went inside to get his camcorder and his wife. While he filmed, the light came closer, another white light was just below the orange light. Unfortunately, the witness said he could not locate the other white light it in the view finder. The craft loitered for half an hour. The orange light came closer and he could see a glowing dome on top, the object finally shot off to the northwest. Thanks to Keith Douglass

Canada disc photographed

KINGSTON, ONTARIO -- Dirk Vander Ploeg Received a photo of a definite UFO from Tim in Canada. The photo was taken on December 4, 2004 in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. I have enlarged the section of the object in the night sky and attempted to brighten it. I used Adobe Photoshop for all tests regarding the object. A clear image of a solid object is evident. Is it an extraterrestrial UFO, I don't know. It is a definitely an unidentified flying object. More photos at by Dirk Vander Ploeg. Thanks to Skywatch-International Web Site

WINNIPEG -- Rick Paley reports, “I am a businessman, and would like to report a May 15, 2005, daylight sighting at 4:40 PM, that lasted for fifteen minutes. I was a passenger riding in a convertible on Mayfair Avenue and the new bridge, when I noticed a bright object in the northeast similar in brightness to Regulus if it were in the night sky with the exception this was daylight. We noticed that it remained stationary and appeared to be getting larger as if it were descending. We pulled over on Main just past the CN Station. It was moving towards the SW. It had become larger and looked like two balls turning clockwise slowly and was now emanating a bright reddish light. The reddish light went from a single distinct light to 3 lights then back to a single light then into two lights and back into three lights. It seemed to hover emanating these lights, then began rising and changed to a darker color with a silver edge and now looked like an oval, solid object with some sort of "field" surrounding it making it appear very dark. It started moving east and then stopped and began to rise further into the sky. We watched it for a few more minutes as it became smaller it flew north and disappeared. Thanks to Rick Paley

France two flying triangles

PARIS 44 Two flying triangles were seen above Paris on June 30, 2004, by Marc who forwarded his testimony to me . “About midnight, I looked at the sky from my balcony and saw a group of luminous weak of light in triangular formation passing overhead for a second or so. I did not believe my eyes but yelled at my wife to come to see but she arrived too late. As she watched she saw another triangle, completely different from the first that turned behind a building!

Mexico Lighted UFO making tight circle

PLAYA DEL CARMEN -- This object appeared as light moving about a mile off the Playa Car coast heading north towards Cancun on April 29, 2005, at 11:30 PM. The object had a bluish white glow with tints of green and red flickering (almost like a reflection). The craft flew with the coast line, then made a tight circle and came out on a tangent from the start of the circles with a slight acceleration. When the craft accelerated, the resorts lights around the massive pool area and surrounding buildings dimmed for 30 seconds. The weather was clear and there was no sound. The path of the craft was not part of the Cancun Airports flight path. Also, the tight circle could not have been made by any aircraft. Its lights were not flashing but more changing and "fluxing" with frequency. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director,

Belize bight lights

San Pedro – The lights looked like two stars but they were moving very slowly due east of the island near Ambergris Caye on April 19, 2005, at 6:30 PM. They where visible for at least 10-15 seconds then all of a sudden one disappeared and then the other followed. They where very bright. They looked like giant stars with just one big bright light. The objects did not leave any trails they just simply disappeared. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director,

Canada silent craft over west end

TORONTO -- Sitting on the porch a loud strange plane noise compelled me to look up on April 19, 2005, at 11:15 PM. At first I thought I spotted a bird, but then a gray triangular projectile passed over head with no lights or possibly a faint white light in the middle. There was no noise associated with the passage of the craft.

VERNON, BC -- On May 7, 2005, about 2 AM, star like objects that brighten to the size of Venus were observed. Similar lights were reported last year. The witness counted several passes last night, south to Kelowna, east to Lumby, west over Lake Okanagan, and north toward Armstrong. Every so often one would brighten to the size of Venus and then fade to a small orange color and disappear. They look like low flying satellites. Two satellites were flying, one behind the other and a third light appeared between the two others. The front light was the brightness of a satellite and the two following were duller suggesting the edge of something with big under lights. I also heard the puzzling sound of a muted jet engine. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research

Sweden bright light flying object

GOTHENBURG – The witness saw a bright shining light like the Northern Star on May 7, 2005, but it was flying in a straight line. As he watched, it changed direction to leave the earth’s atmosphere very ,very fast with the speed of lightning. This usually happens at 11 PM. The first time we saw it was August 1999. We have seen a documentary on TV in 2001, that showed the same objects filmed by NASA. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director,

UK/England several strange lights

BERKSHIRE COUNTY – The witness had just dropped off a friend at 1 PM, on April 19, 2005, when he saw something very strange. He states, “I saw up to 15 large lights in the skies while driving home and they were everywhere in the sky all of them spaced out evenly.” Some were more lit than the others, and their lights appeared to be twinkling/flashing/pulsating, they seemed to be more or less stationary with slight movement.

As I got home I saw three lights above my house, only one was very bright while the others were not as bright. I stood there smoking a cigarette and staring at these lights. I noticed that the larger light was moving in small circles but I couldn’t make out the formation of its movement and after ten minutes they all dimmed a little but they were still visible. The next day I told a few trusted people and they say they didn't see anything of the sort. It was very strange indeed. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director,
