Soyuz Has Near Miss With UFO

This week the Files cover: M. Robert Galley, French Minister of Defense says they have mass of UFO reports, Soyuz TMA-7 and the Near Miss, Mars structures and face and symbols, Does Hubble see UFOs? UK Says No UFOs Analysis, Marines in Prayer, and Photo Analysis by Dr. Bruce Maccabee

Unidentified Flying Objects were spotted over California, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington.

UFOs were also seen in Australia, Cameroon, Canada, India, Poland, South Africa, and United Kingdom. These Files assume that extraterrestrial intelligent life not only exists, but my hypothesis is that of the over one hundred UFOs reported each week, many represent alien craft. The United States Air Force Blue Book Project conducted a worldwide investigation of UFOs from 1947 until December 1969, when it disbanded its investigative team. We are continuing the investigation and make the assumption we are not alone in the universe. Sacred ancient writings and our earliest structures such as the pyramids, and artifacts on the Moon and Mars point to alien intelligence. I observed an alien UFO on my radar and London Control had us intercept the UFO over England.

Let us look for some of the evidence.

M. Robert Galley, French Minister of Defense

"I must say that if listeners could see for themselves the mass of reports coming in from the airborne gendarmerie, from the mobile gendarmerie, and from the gendarmerie charged with the job of conducting investigations, all of which reports are forwarded by us to the National Center for Space Studies, then they would see that it is all pretty disturbing.

I believe that the attitude of spirit that we must vis-à-vis this phenomenon is an open one, that is to say that it doesn't consist in denying a priori, as our ancestors of previous centuries did deny many things that seem nowadays perfectly elementary."

M. Robert Galley, French Minister of Defense, interviewed on radio by Jean-Claude Bourret, February 21, 1974. UFO flights are forbidden over France but they don't seem to obey the law.

Soyuz TMA-7 and the Near Miss!

Jeff Chandler reports, "A fellow who wants only to be referred to as "Brad in Los Angeles" saw an odd event in a NASA replay of the re-entry of Soyuz TMA-7 on 8 April 2006. In this film, Soyuz is clearly visible re-entering the atmosphere, when one of TWO objects enters the picture from the WEST. This object is on a collision course with Soyuz, diverting slightly in its course at the last second, making for a very close call. I just finished posting the new pages on that days' events to Project P.R.O.V.E. moments ago. See these new pages here: Soyuz TMA-7 & The Near Miss!

Hubble Photographs of Unknowns

The Hubble space Telescope advanced cameras are picking up strange objects in space. Ernest writes, "Hubble images of objects they call "protoplanetary disks" sure look like disks appearing elsewhere in our skies." See Do you have comments about this?

These objects are described as a Protoplanetary Disk Silhouetted Against the Orion Nebula.

NASA states, "Resembling an interstellar Frisbee, this is a disk of dust seen edge-on around a newborn star in the Orion nebula, located 1,500 light-years away." Because the disk is edge-on, the star is largely hidden inside, in this striking Hubble Space Telescope picture. The disk may be an embryonic planetary system in the making. Our solar system probably formed out of just such a disk 4.5 billion years ago. At 17 times the diameter of our own solar system, this disk is the largest of several recently discovered in the Orion nebula.

Editor's Note: Recently, I had a man who described himself as a Hubble engineer phone me and he claimed to have seen UFOs. He stated, although they don't officially exist I'm looking at one. He refused to give his name. The objects described as "protoplanetary disks" may be a clever method of describing space ships.

The discs could be much closer than the astronomers realize. We have photos of some taken in Colorado of as UFO several miles long. Assuming there are aliens they may have determined the disk to be one of the best designs for space travel. These objects are allegedly so large they are probably what NASA describes them to be.

Mars: Huge Cube and Hillside Buildings

Norman Bryden writes, "In this section of the photograph taken by the Mars Global Surveyor are structures that look geometric and intelligently built."

Not everyone sees the same things and are not required to. In the lower right left hand corner is a large egg shaped object. There are appendages that make it look like some sort of large machine on the front and sides. To the lower right on the hillside are several objects that are square and cube shaped that look like a group of buildings. There is also just below and left of this group a cut out formation like a terrace and opening into the hillside.

Editor's Note: I see the large egg shaped object and also a face seems to be resting on it. Just to the right of the 7 there is a helmet and below is the face. I am the first to admit that its like looking at faces in clouds. However, faces with helmets are repeatedly found near symbols similar to those used on Earth. On the same color enhanced image nearby is this image of a large white F and two Y symbols. There is some indication the symbols point to landing sites. Notice the large Y points to a series of Ys then a reverse L at the bottom of the photo, that appear to be structures.

Montserrat Volcano Suspends Flights

CARACAS, Venezuela — A huge cloud of ash billowing from a Montserrat volcano forced the suspension of some international flights over the Caribbean on Sunday. Flights between Venezuela and Miami were grounded, as well those to and from the Dutch island of Aruba, after a dome atop a volcano on Montserrat island collapsed Saturday, sending volcanic debris cascading down the mountain and shooting ashes 10 miles into the sky.

California Flying Triangle

Anza Borrego State Park -- On April 24, 2006 at 9:05 PM, while camping in the Anza Borrego desert at the Fish Creek camping area, we had an excellent viewing of a large triangular aircraft. It flew from west to east and emitted a relatively quiet jet engine noise. It is huge, which is what initially caught my son's attention. It had running lights, blue on the three points of the triangle and two red and a blue along the edge facing us. It is obviously a military and or experimental aircraft. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

Delaware Flying Triangle

Wilmington – On May 1, 2006, at 11 PM, a craft in triangular shape with red, green, and blue lights was not very far up. It virtually had no noise except a little hover that sounded nothing like a plane. Duration of the sighting was for ten minutes. ((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the event is approximate. PD)) Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

Florida Triangle

Hollywood --We saw a triangular shaped object on May 3, 2006, at 9 PM, that was very far in space. It appeared to have blinking lights in an oval shape to one end. My wife saw it first, and then she came and got me out of bed and said that she saw a UFO, so I thought she was joking. But when I went outside, I saw something to the East of my house that appeared to be in space. The object was a little faint, but was clearly something. I studied it for a minute and saw a strobe like light shoot away from it many times toward the northwest. In the back ground were stars. The object was still at first, and started moving to another point in space. I went to the neighbors' house and he saw the same thing. While we were watching it, it stopped moving for about ten minutes. Then, it moved again in a different direction. His wife came out and saw it too. At first, we thought it was a satellite. Then to their surprise, it stopped moving and stayed there for about five minutes, then moved again in another direction. Every time it stopped, we saw the light strobes coming out of it. A teen boy also saw it and said he never saw anything like that. We stayed out and watched it for about another hour then it started to move south. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

Illinois Large Black Flying Triangle

Painting by Paul Greco

Canton -- I was driving home from work at about 10:15 pm, on May 1, 2006, when I noticed a large object that appeared to be hovering about 20 meters above the tree line north of the road. The object was very large; and I would guess it to be about the size of a very large jumbo jet. It was shaped like an isosceles triangle, with steady blue-white lights positioned at each of the points. The object seemed to be black in color and not extremely thick for its size, about 6-8 meters in thickness. The most unusual characteristic of the object was a marked lack of engine noise. I stopped the car, and got out to watch and observed the object for about four minutes. It was about fifty yards distance during which time the object slowly moved northeast at a moderate and steady pace. It made a slight whirring noise. I am a thirty year old male who works retail with a university degree in history education. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

Indiana Triangle Craft Hovering

Franklin -- Coming home from work on rural roads on May 3, 2006, at 10:35 PM, I saw a triangle shaped craft with three lights, one on each point, and one in middle, hovering over Union Elementary School in Union Township. I stopped my car and got out to observe the clearly triangle shaped craft that was about 1500 feet in air. It made absolutely no sound. The shape was deep black, darker than the night sky, and almost seemed to absorb light. The lights did not appear to illuminate anything underneath it. This is in restricted military airspace for Camp Atterbury, which is located about 20 miles south. I observed carefully until the craft slowly moved off to the northwest. My mother also had a sighting over our house three miles southeast of this location on 11/8/04 of the same type of object. She notes that during her observation, the craft also had no sound and was very low to the ground. She had reported her observation. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

Dana -- On the evening of January 4, 2006, at around 11:30 PM, I was sitting in my hot tub with my girl friend on a cloudy windy night when we noticed three lights in a triangular pattern in the eastern sky. The colors of the lights were red, green and yellow. What caught my eye was that as this shape moved through the cloud you could see the cloud being displaced and the cloud sort of shimmering over the hull of the object. The object was 250 to 300 feet above the surface moving slow. Then it banked up and right and entered a cloud and became somehow visible. The object was very large for any aircraft about a 100 yards across and 45" thick. It moved very gracefully, almost like a fish would move in the water without sound. After it passed through the cloud it was no longer visible.. When it was visible in the cloud you could see the cloud shimmering over the hull. My girlfriend unfortunately did not see it. This was the most awesome sight I have ever seen in my life. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

Kentucky Train Collision with Disk UFO

Paintsville -- At exactly 2:47 a.m. on January 14, 2002, while working a coal train enroute from Russell, Kentucky to Shelbiana, Kentucky, our trailing unit and first two cars were severely damaged as we struck an unknown floating or hovering object. I know it was 2:47 because my watch froze, and to this day shows that time. Along with my watch the entire electrical systems on both locomotives went haywire. Approaching a bend near milepost 42 in an area referred to as the Wild Kingdom, for the many different types of animals spotted there, my conductor and I saw lights coming from around the way. This ordinarily means another train is coming and will pass on the other track. The outlay of the area is this, the river, #1 track, #2 tracks and a straight up mountainside, carved out for the laying of these tracks. I killed our lights as not to blind the oncoming crew. As we rounded the corner our onboard computer began to flash in and out, speed recorder went nuts, and both locomotives died. Alarm bells began to ring and that's when we saw the objects. Apparently scanning the river for something. At least three objects had several "search" lights trained there, the first object hovered about 10 to 12 feet above the track.

It was metallic silver in color with multiple colored lights near the bottom and in the middle. There were no windows or openings of any kind that we could see. It was 18 to 20 feet in length and probably ten feet high. With both engines dead as we rounded the corner we made little noise and the first object did not respond in time, I estimate that we hit the object at 30 mph with 16,000 trailing tons behind us. It clipped the top of our lead unit then skipped back slicing a chunk out of our trailing unit and first two coal cars. The other objects vanished.

Our emergency brakes had initiated due to the loss of power and we stopped approximately a mile and a half to two miles after impact. Our power restored after we were stopped and we notified our dispatcher, located in Jacksonville, Florida of what had happened. We were told to inspect the cars to see if they'd hold the rail and try to limp into milepost cmg 60 which used to be the Paintsville yard which is no longer in full operation. We checked everything out and the cab of the rear locomotive was demolished and smoking, the second two cars looked as if they had been hit with a giant hammer, but looked like they'd hold the rail.

Aerial View Paintsville,KY     Railroad yard

We pulled into Paintsville yard at approximately 5:15 am. The huge overhead lights lining the yard were noticeably dark and the only lights came from what we assumed were railroad officials vehicles parked near the end of the track. We pulled to a stop and began unloading our grips off the wounded train. We could hear what sounded like an army of workers immediately tending to our train. Vehicle doors slamming, guys running by in weird outfits and lights glaring from all directions, the one thing missing was railroad officials.

A guy named Ferguson shook my hand and asked me to follow him into the old yard office. We did, once inside they, and by they I mean I have no idea who these people were, began to ask us hundreds of questions, they then told us for our own protection we'd be medically tested before we could leave. I asked repeatedly to talk to my road foreman or trainmaster and not only were these requests denied but they confiscated my conductor's cellular phone. Hours later we were led outside the old yard office and the strange things continued to happen, the 2 locomotives and two cars were removed from the rest of the train we had brought in and my only guess was parked 4 tracks over under a huge tent like structure buzzing with activity. We were lead off the property and told, due to national security, our silence on this matter would be appreciated.

We were then put in a railroad vehicle and taken to Martin, Kentucky were we went through questioning again with railroad officials and were then drug tested. After all of this we were sent on to Shelbiana, where we took rest for 8 hours and worked another train back to Russell. Working back we passed by Paintsville, no sign of the engines, cars, tent, people, nothing. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

Maryland Multiple UFO's Flying

Baltimore Inner Harbor -- We went out onto our rooftop deck which overlooks the Inner Harbor on May 13, 2006, at 11:40 PM, and in the distance, we saw multiple bright white spots that were moving about quickly and erratically through the sky. There was no pattern to the movements and the objects were moving too quickly and erratically to be regular aircraft. We were also able to rule out some type of light show as there were no beams and no events scheduled in the Harbor. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

Silver Spring -- On April 24, 2006 at 9:05 PM, as I was riding the bus this Wednesday morning I noticed a bright metallic cigar shaped object out side the window. At first, I thought to myself it must be a plane. But as I looked closer I realized that I did not see any wings what so ever, no vapor trails and the object seemed to fly very slowly compared to that of conventional planes. The object headed to the east then suddenly stopped in mid air. I couldn't believe it. I looked around and the only thing I saw was blue sky, there wasn't even a cloud in sight. Then, out of nowhere I spotted a second metallic object just like the first only headed toward the west. By this point the bus had stopped to let off passengers. This is when I turned my attention back to the first object and realized that I was correct, it had stopped in mid air. Then to top that off the second object flew underneath and past the first. It wasn't until this happened that the first object resumed speed and flew out of my sight. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

Michigan Teardrop

Sterling Heights -- On April 24, 2006 at 2 AM, two teardrop shaped craft with orange lights hovered over the parking area but stayed high up. ((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous; provides no contact information. PD)) Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

Mississippi Predator

MERIDIAN -- The triangular UFO's that I have been encountering are very interesting. These machines are not of alien origin. But they are of earthly origin. Recently I have encountered these machines up close and personal. A lot closer than I had first experienced.. The past week leading up to Mother's Day I encountered these up close three times in one week. Why up close?

Because the vessels seem to find me and my vehicle quite interesting. I encountered one as it scanned the vehicle with its erector beam. I jammed its frequency with the on board magnetic microwave transmitter. The vessel then came back and flew over the car twice. It flew close enough to the top of the car as I looked out of the window, which allowed me to see the emblazoned insignia on it's under side. This was brought to life by the bright lights on the under carriage. The insignia was that of the old USAF with the star in the middle with the red and white stripes. This logo has not been used in over a decade since it was replaced by the new blue logo with the star with wings. I have gone forth to do research into this matter. These triangular ships people are seeing are the black Predator Class X-Drones that have been used and are still being used to for homeland security. The Predator class is manned with a microcomputer intensified with a first generation artificial intelligence program. These drones conduct surveillance at night over swamps, lakes, ponds, power lines, and other electrical areas. My educated guess is that they are spying on humans. The MIBs are tied into these drones as well since they are old first generation of androids used as security back up to intimidate humans into submission. Each time I have encountered a predator drone I get an encounter from a MIB. Thanks to Fr. Christopher Shelton, Vicar General, United Episcopal Archdiocese of the Good News.

Editor's Note: The MQ-1, Predator a medium-altitude long endurance unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), is flown remotely. UCAV is the latest version both are located at Eglin AFB, Florida, Indian Springs, AFAF, Nevada and Nellis AFB, Nev.

Missouri Rectangular White Lights

Kingsville -- On May 1, 2006, about midnight, I saw an object with alternating lights, totally silent, gliding close overhead for about five minutes. I live on 24 country acres. I went out back to dump out gray water about midnight. When I looked back up at the night sky --mostly clear -- I saw two, light-flashing rectangles opposite of each other -- and flashing alternately. The object, maybe 200 feet off the ground, moved in absolute silence. It hung there, those two rectangular lights just flashing. It began to move, fairly slow -- I think from the sky that was blocked and the way the lights were positioned, it was a curved triangular shape. What was really eerie was the silence. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

New Mexico video

Lordsburg -- Benjie Medina writes, "On April 18, 2006, we had a great deal of UFO activity going on day and night that continued into May. RamonOrtiz is capturing them on video. The light hovered in the sky, and periodically changed shape but stayed in the area for over five minutes. Two lights hover in the area with a red strobe in the center. Thanks to Benjie Medina and Ramon Ortiz

New York Sphere

Carthage -- On May 1, 2006, about 9:20 PM, we were driving along route 3A when in the trees to our right we saw a sphere shaped object with red and blue flashing lights. The object appeared to be in the trees very low to the ground. We then turned the car around to go back and see what it was but it was moving away quickly and the lights turned off. It seemed as if it was disappearing before our eyes. We kept driving back and forth trying to spot it, but there was no sight of it. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

Nevada Diamond

LAS VEGAS -- On May 1, 2006, about 6:14 PM, we had a sighting from Stratosphere observation deck. Both objects were black. The object was first observed hovering and then it tumbled end over end. The second movement wafted from south to north before climbing to higher altitude. The second craft was then seen following the first craft. Both were diamond shaped with rounded edges.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with this witness, and he sounded to be quite credible, in our opinion. He reported that there were many witnesses on the observation deck at the Stratosphere, at the time, and we would welcome reports from any of those other observers. PD Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

Ohio Flying Triangle and Circle

Wadsworth – Uforc reporter states, "On the evening of April 15, 2006, my son and daughter-in-law were en route from Doylestown, the same day as President Bush's visit to Cleveland, when they noticed a UFO following them. They pulled into our drive, and she ran into our house frightened. I stepped outside in time to watch it go over our home, and up the street flying north toward Cleveland at about 60 MPH." The object may have been a military craft because for something so large, it was moving quite slow? If the military was fishing for 'sighting reports' to test it's stealth capabilities, I say to the military: Yes, we saw you, no, we did not hear you.

The object was a huge, black triangle that was 30 to 40 meters or over 100 feet from point to point. The unidentified object was silent as it passed over his home at an altitude of 120 meters. Any object this big would not pass undetected. If anyone has seen this object they are asked to report their sighting to the UFO Resource Center

FOSTORIA -- George Ritter sends some of his latest video images. This one was taken at 2:57 AM, on May 18, 2006, in infrared showing an cigar like object moving at high speed. Contrast has been increased in the image.

Thanks to George Ritter

Texas Flying Triangles

Euless -- On April 30, 2006 at 10:25 PM, the witness, saw for ten seconds, a flying triangle very low without lights. The object silently flew right over my head and blocked out view of stars as it passed. There are many lights in my apartment complex making it difficult to see the stars. Tonight was clear so before turning in, I was on my balcony looking up when a triangular shape object flew over very low. It had obvious tube like shapes forming the rear of the craft. It moved very fast in a straight line heading due south – without any sound whatsoever. There were no lights on the craft and it was very dark with obvious light grey color "spots." It blocked out my view of the stars. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

Washington Triangle

Washington Cascades -- I was reviewing some digital photos from a climbing trip on May 14, 2006, Sunday, when something caught my eye. I was looking at some pictures looking west from the summit of Kendall Peak near Snoqualmie Pass when I noticed a blurred object high over the peaks. I'm sure this is not an insect because I never saw any bugs all day and none of my other photos contained anything like this or a bug of any kind. When I enlarge it, I get a blurred object that is definitely light on top, dark on bottom, and vaguely bell shaped. Thanks Russ Hamerly STB_4290.JPG

Redmond – On May 2, 2006, at 9:21 PM, a very large craft was observed flying southeast low over the horizon. It had at least three flashing lights spaced evenly apart. The lights moved evenly with the craft and flashed in a pattern with several colors at a fast speed. The night had a bright moon and a clear sky. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

Australia Teardrop

Gold Coast -- On April 30, 2006 at 10:15 PM, my friend and I were surfing and 300 meters further out to sea we saw an object break out of the water. Then two more teardrop shaped objects flew up out of the water. The three teardrops kept going up, occasionally going fast then slower, until they gained speed rapidly and disappeared amongst the clouds. We paddled to where they had come from, and the water was drastically warmer than anywhere else. The sighting lasted 36 seconds. ((NUFORC Note: Report from student. PD))

Cameroon Diamond

Yaounde -- On April 18, 2006 at 11:23 PM, an unknown flying stable object with green and flashy lights flew over about 1002 meters from the ground. The actual size was unknown. The duration of the sighting was twelve minutes.

((NUFORC Note: We do not know how the witness could have determined the altitude with such precision. PD))

Canada Disk

Abbotsford BC – On May 2, 2006 at 05:12 PM, my fiancé and I were on our way to work, pulling out into the street driving north. When almost immediately, I noticed an object that looked, to my first thought, like Saturn and its rings. It was a slow moving Saturn like saucer similar to one witnessed over Mission, BC.

The object was the size of the moon in the morning sky, and it was far too low and to the north of us above the Fraser River. Duration:10 minutes As we stopped at the intersection for a left turn, I watched the object closely as it slowly moved through the sky moving west to east. I noticed a single flashing light on the upper ceiling of the object. It was also illuminated by the rising sun which was still blocked by mountains for us at ground level. We stopped at the intersection, and I saw it continue slowly eastward but now it had lost its Saturn effect. My guess is that it had been banking towards us at the time, and you could see the ring edge on. I spotted the object a third time and it looked more like a dark blob in the dawn sky. I've never seen anything remotely like it. Thanks to Brian Vike

India a Bright Light Descends Vertically

Karwar -- The sightings took place on April 7,2006 in a coastal district located at the western tip of Karnataka, bordering Goa. I was watching the sky from a friend's terrace and saw at 7:40 PM, a yellow light travel in the northern direction. It was two inches big, in and inverted square shape. It floated by for eight seconds, then disappeared abruptly. The second one appeared like a great big shooting star, but slower, leaving a golden trail and it was two inches and oval shaped. It traveled from the east to west across the horizon at 7:50 PM, for five seconds. At 8:25 PM, a bright golden light, three fourth the size of a moon stood still for at least 15 seconds. It then descended vertically down for five seconds and disappeared. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research Home - Phone 250 845 2189 email:

Poland Strange Buzzing Ball

Przemysl Check this story and photos. Mrs. Anna from Przemysl [city where the famous photo was taken in this year] was hanging out her laundry on May 2,, 2006, when she met a strange buzzing ball. She managed to take two photos before the camera went off. The ball also had some influence on the witness. Anyway it is hard to establish its true origins. Piotr

South Africa UFO 'Crashes' into Sea

Port Shepstone - The National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) is monitoring a mysterious situation on the KZN south coast. Numerous eye-witnesses reported an unidentified flying object crashing into the sea on Saturday, May 20, 2006. NSRI Shelley Beach station commander, Eddie Noyons, said eye-witnesses had reported an unidentified object - possibly an aircraft - crashing into the sea behind the breaker line off-shore. Police, rescue craft and a fixed wing aircraft were alerted to the scene to investigate. Noyons said:

"Following a full-scale search of the area nothing has been found. "There are no reports of activity in the area that may be related to this incident and there are no aircraft reported overdue or missing." He said numerous eye-witnesses - including teachers and pupils at the high school, and local fishermen - were convinced they had seen an aircraft go into the water. They said they saw smoke and described "water exploding". Some also reported seeing flames. Noyons said: "Some reported seeing something, an unidentified object, splash into the sea causing a ripple effect of waves." Noyons said it was being presumed that weather activity in the area at the time might have given the impression of something falling into the sea.

UK Says No UFOs Analysis

John E. Combest, Inspection Engineer writes, "The paragraph below is taken verbatim from your FF#20 where you address the totally transparent claim by the Brits that there have been no "solid" UFO-type craft over the UK for the past 30 years. But whenever you make a false statement about something, and you know the statement is not based on the truth, it is quite likely you will soon come face-to-face with the very circumstance that you insisted did not exist. The British report first denies there has been any recent evidence of the existence in the skies over the UK of "solid objects which could cause a collision hazard". But in the second highlighted phrase, the report is careful (in keeping with the facts of life) to warn RAF pilots "not to try to intercept UAPs because of the threat of collision." The report should have gone one step further in attempting to explain the mechanism by which RAF aircraft could experience damage from a collision with something which did not exist!

FF#20: Man-made objects, such as airplanes, are also often mis-seen or are actually meteors re-entering the Earth's atmosphere causing "buoyant plasmas". Rare weather, atmospheric conditions or other "barely understood" natural events could also be causes. "There is no evidence that any UAP seen in the UKADR are incursions by objects of any intelligent (extra-terrestrial or foreign) origin, or that they represent any hostile intent," the unnamed author of the report said. "There is no evidence that 'solid' objects exist which could cause a collision hazard."

The study, which aimed to assess whether Britain was threatened by UAPs and "should the opportunity arise, to identify any potential military technologies of interest", concluded there was "nothing of defence intelligence value". But it warned Royal Air Force pilots, who are most likely to encounter such phenomena, not to try to intercept UAPs because of the threat of collision.

UK Two Lights Above North Sea

NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE – On May 16, 2006, the witness reports seeing flying lights which criss-crossed and shot out heading towards the North Sea. It was 01:21 hours local time. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC.

LONDON -- Kathy writes, "These shots were taken in a dark field just out side of London about 9 PM, in December last year." The bush in front of the picture was a bout 6 feet away from myself and my friend. One can clearly see and orb behind the bush...That photo alone dispelled some of the specks of dust and moisture hypothesis, although I am aware they can cause some images. Thanks to Kathy D, Adelaide, Australia.

Photo Analysis by Dr. Bruce Maccabee

He writes, "Actually the "orb" is in front of the branches." It appears as if it is behind because the branches were illuminated by the flash and created mostly overexposed images. The light from the dust particle, which creates the "orb" image, adds to the light reflected from each branch where the orb image is coincident with the image of a branch. When branch images are overexposed the increased brightness caused by the light reflected from a dust particle near the lens is not noticeable. If the reflector that caused the orb image had been behind the branches, then the brightnesses of the images of the branches would not have been increased by the orb brightness. However, the branch brightnesses were increased slightly by the dust particle reflection. This is not noticeable for most branches because the their images are already bright. However, there was one branch on the bush which did not reflect light as strongly as the others so its image was not bright or overexposed. It is partly outside the orb image and partly inside the orb image.

In the above photo processed image, the branch is marked as "A" outside the orb image and marked as "B" inside the orb image. Starting from the full color original I first changed it to grey levels to clarify the brightness variations. Next I decreased the overall picture brightness to the point where the branch outside the orb image is not visible in the picture, but the portion of the branch inside the orb image is still visible. This is because the portion of the branch inside the orb image has the orb image brightness added to it.

The slight increase in image brightness is a result of the light reflected from the dust particle being added to the light reflected from the branch. The other branches which "penetrate" the orb image also have slightly increased brightness inside the orb image, but they are already brighter and so the slight increase is less obvious. A photo processing program which is capable of indicating the relative brightness at any pixel can be used to demonstrate the increase in brightness of a branch inside the orb image as compared to outside. For example, I have indicated relative brightness levels (on a scale of 256 levels) at two locations on another branch that was not completely overexposed. The brightness inside the orb image is greater than that outside the orb image. Dr. Bruce Maccabee MUFON MD State Director

Marines Bow There Heads

If you look closely at the picture above, you will note that all the Marines pictured are bowing their heads. That's because they're praying? This incident took place at a recent ceremony honoring the Birthday of the Corps, and it has the ACLU up in arms. "These are federal employees," says Lucius Traveler, a spokesman for the ACLU, "on federal property and on federal time. For them to pray is clearly an establishment of religion, and we must nip this in the bud immediately." When asked about the ACL U's charges, Colonel Jack Fessender, speaking for the Commandant of the Marine Corps said (cleaned up a bit), "Screw the ACLU." GOD Bless Our Warriors!

We are in a religious war.
