UFOs Buzz Shuttle and Airliners

This week's files cover: John Podesta Wants USAF to Release UFO Files, Endeavour Shuttle Flight Buzzed at Landing, and Israel Attacks Syria's Nuclear Storage Site.

Unidentified Aerial Phenomena were spotted over: Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Virginia, Washington West Virginia, and Wisconsin

UFOs were also seen in Australia, Canada, Haiti, Italy, Luxemburg, Mexico, Peru meteorite, and the UK.

These Files assume that extraterrestrial intelligent life not only exists, but my hypothesis is that the over one hundred UFOs reported each week represent technologically advanced spacecraft conducting surveillance of Earth. I personally became interested in UFOs when I chased one over England when flying for the US Air Force. I've been investigating them ever since. The US Air Force under Project Blue Book investigated UFOs for more than twenty years, we continue this research. It is my belief that God has spread intelligent civilizations throughout the universe.

John Podesta Wants USAF to Release UFO Files

President Clinton's former White House Chief of Staff and an international investigative journalist wants to know what the Pentagon knows, calling on it to release classified files about incidents involving unidentified flying objects, or UFOs. John Podesta said, "It is time for the government to declassify records that are more than 25 years old and to provide scientists with data that will assist in determining the real nature of this phenomenon. " Despite earning little credence, cases of strange aerial phenomena that defy explanation abound -- whether witnessed by thousands of Arizona residents, commercial airline pilots or a U.S. president. The new initiative is not setting out to prove the existence of aliens. Rather the group wants to legitimize the scientific investigation of unexplained aerial phenomena.

Podesta was one of numerous political and media heavyweights on hand in Washington, D.C., to announce the Coalition for Freedom of Information (CFI) wishes to gain access to secret government records about UFOs. Specifically, they want Air Force documents involving Project Moon Dust and Operation Blue Fly, clandestine operations reported to have existed decades ago to investigate UFOs and retrieve objects of unknown origins. In the 1940's, 1950's and 1960's, the government did take the UFO search seriously and top generals considered the pros and cons of informing the U.S. public, Kean said, citing top secret memos.

Trying to stamp out ridicule: Backed by the Sci-Fi channel, the CFI hopes to reduce the scientific ridicule factor in this country when the topic is UFOs. "There's definitely evidence of strange phenomenon in the world. These are well documented," said Kean, who has written for The Nation, the Boston Globe and the International Herald Tribune. "Most people don't think that there is evidence because they haven't looked for it. There's such a little green men mind set in this culture. It's hard to work your way through that."

The CFI director Ed Rothschild also works for Podesta's public relations firm, Podesta Mattoon, which is coordinating the new group at the behest of the Sci-Fi channel. He said the initiative was a call for serious investigation, not a publicity stunt for the cable network. (From USA Today)

Endeavour Shuttle Flight Buzzed at Landing

Jeff Challender writes, "After watching diligently for anything out of the ordinary during the nearly two weeks of STS-118 Endeavour Shuttle Flight, I was becoming convinced that no anomalies would be seen. The INCOs and CATOs were methodical about what they were willing to show us in "live" downlink TV on this flight."

Of the 330 hours of STS-118, less than a half-hour involved night views of Earth. This was the least night time downlink EVER! I wasn't the only one to notice this development, either. See this thread at the Above Top Secret Forum for more.

What night-time downlink TV there was, was so corrupted, it would be useless even if there were 100s of anomalies buzzing about. Almost all the night stuff was artificially darkened, with increased contrast so that cities were pure white, and everything else was jet-black. Add the usual snow mask, and there was nothing to see.

What daytime downlink aired when the USA was in daylight, other than during space walks, was of the Pacific Ocean at least 90% of the time. Orbit after orbit, the cameras were turned off at dusk, and turned on again at sunrise over the Pacific, just east of Australia. I'd hazard a guess that we had at least 16 hours of the wide blue Pacific this flight. Very little land other than the African deserts and Australian deserts was broadcast.

So imagine my surprise when at the last possible minute, something did make an appearance!

When Endeavour was only about 90 seconds from touchdown, she was far enough out to present little more than a white dot on my TV screen. The television camera even zoomed in telescopically for a period of time to bring the image of Endeavour a little closer. Suddenly, during the zoomed portion of the broadcast, another white object entered from the right edge of the picture. It was similar in appearance to Endeavour herself. At first, because it was moving on a straight and level course, I took it for the chase plane normally aloft during this phase of any Shuttle mission.

However, the object stopped in mid-air, dipped toward Endeavour, and reversed course, heading off toward the upper left corner of the screen. Nothing in the human inventory can do this! I also had to discount the possibility that this was only a bird. After its incredible maneuver, the object moved off into the atmosphere, becoming hazier and hazier until it vanished in the distance at very high speed. No bird on Earth is capable of such speeds.

The camera, mounted on the ground at mid-field, was controlled by someone at the Kennedy Space Center, as by this time NASA Select TV was originating from that location. The INCO, and CATO, in Houston at Johnson Space Center were no longer involved at this point. The anomalous object which buzzed Endeavour on her final approach to land is seen moving from right to left across the video at high speed. Please go to Project Prove Thanks to Jeff Challender

John Combest writes, "The posting at Project P.R.O.V.E. of the details of flight STS-118 is well done and it is painfully, un-arguably obvious that NASA has pulled out all stops to prevent the public from seeing what is readily visible from space with regard to all kinds of space craft flitting about everywhere." It is just very sad that there is so much intellectual dishonesty, obstruction, and denial to the public regarding access to the knowledge about our planet and its visitors which ought to be readily available to everyone.

NASA readily uses the public's tax monies to engage in space exploration, advanced telescopes, which reveal the presence and activity of visitors from space on / in the vicinity of Earth, the moon, or other planets - including craft and structures. But there is no logical process by which those public servants can presume to withhold from the public - whose funds they have used - all the incidental information developed during those programs. If someone had the money to pursue this topic, I suspect it could be logically argued in a courtroom that withholding such information was an illegal response to and treatment of such scientific findings.

Israel Attacks Syria's Nuclear Weapons Site

Last week, Israel aircraft bombed key targets in Northern Syria leading to speculation that their intelligence had located the weapons of mass destruction that former Iraqi General Georges Sada claimed Saddam Hussein's Iraqi Air Force flew to Syria just prior to the beginning of the Iraq war. General Sada in his book, "Saddam's Secrets" confirmed the existence and the hiding of weapons of mass destruction in Syria. General Sada the second highest ranking officer in the Iraqi Air Force claims that the illusive Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD's) were flown aboard 747's and 727's to Syria disguised as humanitarian aid. He claims the intelligence of the US, Russia, UK, Egypt were correct until the weapons were moved. There is a large pile of captured Iraqi military documents that also prove the existence of the WMD. Thanks to Publishers Weekly.

The London Sunday Times said, "Shortly after midnight on September 6, 2007, the 69th F-15I squadron crossed the Syrian coastline to blow apart an underground Syrian nuclear storage facility." The Israeli Air Force Shaldag Commando Unit was already waiting to mark the target with laser beams for the attacking aircraft. Within a short time the bunkers went up in flames.

The Israeli F-15s aircraft have been fitted with external fuel tanks giving them a range of over 1,500 miles. The Israelis penetrated Syrian air space by passing over territory of Israel's ally, Turkey. It was a large-scale operation involving eight planes, F-16s as well as F-15Is, and they were armed with Maverick missiles and bombs weighing 400 pounds. This was likely a rehearsal for an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities.

The Israelis' claim Syria was trying to purchase nuclear weapons from North Korea. Dagan, the paper said, feared that when the time came, Israel fears Syria would try to mount a nuclear warhead on their North Korean-manufactured Scud-C missiles. Syria now possesses between 60 and 120 North Korea Scud-Cs, with chemical warheads from Iraq.

Arizona Orb Photo

SHOW LOW -- As we walked out the door from the Wal-Mart on Sunday, September 2, 2007, at 5:06 PM, we saw most of the people in the parking lot looking into the sky at this bright object. We watched this object for about 15 minutes before leaving the parking lot. The object was stationary and did not move at all. As my wife and I were on vacation we had our digital camera with us and took a few pictures. When I got home I tried to blow it up but could not tell what the object was.

Investigator's Notes: Bill Puckett writes, "I don't believe that the object in the photo is a bright planet because planets would not be visible well before sunset." Another sighting occurred 90 minutes later.

LAKE of SAN CARLOS -- There were six of us fishing on September 2, 2007, around 6:30 PM, off the Indian Reservation when my friend announced "Tell me that that's not a Planet!" We all looked and to the west at a far distance, indeed it looked like a large planet (which we knew it was not) and to myself I thought it looked like a perfect miniature full moon. After watching for about 20 to 30 minutes, this object came closer by moving directly east at a steady slow pace. It still did not approach the lake but was close. Within the next 45 minutes this object moved at an extreme speed west and upward till it was out of sight. A weather balloon cannot fly at this speed. Did anyone else observe this at Latitude: 33.2 Degrees North Longitude: 110.43 Degrees West?

Investigator's Notes: I don't believe that the witnesses sighted a weather balloon because of the time and the movement characteristics. It is unlikely that a weather balloon would have been visible for 45 minutes. Another sighting of a similar object (bright light) was seen about 90 minutes earlier about 100 miles north at Show Low of possibly the same object. Thanks to Bill Puckett UFOS Northwest

WINSLOW -- My wife and I were driving east on I-40 on September 2, 2007, and she spotted an extremely bright light in the sky. It was in the southern sky and was kind of white/yellow against the blue sky. I watched as I drove and it stayed in the same spot the whole time. I told her to try to take some pictures of it and she was not able to take them fast enough. The light had some clouds move closer to it. This is when we took our pictures. The clouds moved in front of and behind it with it staying still the whole time. Ten minutes after first spotting it a cloud moved in front of it and after the cloud went by it was gone. Thanks to MUFON CMS

California UFO Triangle

LOS ANGELES -- It was 12:12 AM, on August 12, 2007, and I heard a meteor shower was in progress so I went outside, and saw three stars that seemed connected snaking through the atmosphere. Several friends and my family all saw the object...somewhat worming through the stars. Three somewhat strung out stars kept moving (- -) like this in the parenthesis. The first half would move up and second half would move down as a snake would. After four minutes it looked as if it was over downtown L. A. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Colorado Sphere Caught On Film

DURANGO -- Greg Lauver reports, "While driving through town on US Highway 550 on September 13, 2007, I saw an object like a glowing diamond filled with countless strands of yellow-white light at 4:50 PM. Each strand was a string of countless beads of gleaming white, all of which floated in a transparent medium which permitted the sky color to pass through yet also glowed faintly due to its contents. It reminded me of a spectacular back-lit picture of a live jellyfish by National Geographic. The brightness of the "corners" was more like that of Venus, but the interior was of lesser intensity.

This drawing is my attempt to represent the above impressions. I solidly braced my binoculars and the object appeared stationary for at least 30 minutes. The sun had already set and, there were no clouds near it, but clouds were approaching from the west.

Later, cirrus clouds began to pass under it, and I knew it was pretty high up, pretty big, and it gradually changed from yellow-white to intense crimson, although the corners remained white. Therefore, I thought the object might be reflective, rather than self-luminous. However, after it was obscured for a while and the sky was getting dark, the clouds thinned and the object was a faintly visible, yellow-white glow. Thanks to Greg Lauver

Illinois 30 Bright Silver Circular Objects

CHICAGO MIDWAY AIRPORT -- At 7:30 AM, Thursday September 13, 2007, my shift had just started and I was making the rounds touching base with my employees. I was outside talking to one of my operators who told me to take a look at those lights in the WSW sky. I saw two very bright silver circular objects that looked like a pair of head lights. They were moving NE rapidly and we both noticed another bright silver stationary object. The other two objects got closer and formed a triangle shape and then all three moved at the same speed and direction. We then noticed four or five similar objects appear so I called two other employees to take a look. Now four of us were watching.

Then one shouted and pointed to the SW where we saw 30 to 40 more of these objects of the same type of shape and color. We all were shocked and called more co-workers passing by on their forklifts to take a look. Seven of us witnessed them moving NE as the sun rose and made watching more difficult. Midway Airport is just a couple of miles away and there were planes flying in the area. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Missouri A Stationary Pewter Colored Triangle

UNIVERSITY CITY -- I witnessed a pewter colored triangle with lights at each of three rounded corners on September 10, 2007, at 10:20 PM. It was solid and stationary and hovered for about forty seconds until flying slowly into a low cloud cover. Just behind each point of the triangle on the underside were three non blinking iridescent blue lights closely grouped. Its size was about fifty feet between each point. The low flying craft's lights reflected on to the underside showing its metallic color and the smooth featureless surface. It gave off enough light that I could see some depth to it, and there was no sound.

I live along the path of air traffic six miles southeast of St Louis Lambert Airport. It flew at take off altitude of about a thousand feet. Holding up my thumb would not have blocked it's view from my sight. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research. email: Web site:

Nevada UFO Discs Filmed

ELY -- I was walking around with a Sony camcorder filming some old houses from Gold-rush days on April 13, 2006, at 4:10 PM. I just recently had my computer repaired and went through my tapes for the first time and saw the discs on six photos in sequence. They are all from the same second in time. The camera temporarily malfunctioned after the last photo but then abruptly started filming again at another location.

In 1993, while my husband, dog and I were exploring the Lucky Boy Pass area near Hawthorne, Nevada, we saw an object that looked "just like" one of these. We were trying to find an elusive whirring sound, when suddenly directly above us was a stainless steel looking object that suddenly appeared thirty feet above us. The bottom was smooth and I could clearly see the small trees that surrounded us reflected on the shiny bottom side. It didn't seem to leave, but suddenly was gone. Thanks to MUFON CMS

New York Airliner with UFO

JFK INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT -- The photograph of a UFO near a KLM (Royal Dutch Airlines) airliner was taken by George Fasher from JFK International Airport, New York City, in July 1973. The aircraft was a Boeing 747-2006 B, registration PH-BUC. Thanks to The Journal of Hispanic Ufology (Information courtesy Ana Luisa Cid; translation Scott Corrales)

North Carolina Flying Oval

CARON MYERS FOX 8 News reports “Was it a meteor, the military or a UFO? A Lexington family is trying to figure out the origin of an unusual light they saw near North Myrtle Beach, S. C. last week. "It looked like a yellow car light up in the sky," said Tracy House. The family first noticed the light September 5 over the Atlantic Ocean. Josh House and his sister, Tracy called the Coast Guard, thinking someone was stranded... and ran to the water's edge. The Coast Guard says it was probably a meteor shower. Even grandfather Buzzy House, the family skeptic, doesn't buy that explanation."I don't believe in flying saucers but I did see the lights."

North Myrtle Beach police told the family the lights were likely caused by jets from Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter, S. C., performing military maneuvers. According to the North Carolina president of MUFON, the Mutual UFO Network, it could have been something more "interplanetary." "There is a marked increase in sightings and personally, in my opinion only, I think we're getting ready for some event," said Jim Sutton, MUFON North Carolina president. Thanks to Fox News

Ohio Bright Orange Lights

LEESBURG -- On a cool evening, about 9:30 PM, my brother and I went into the garage to smoke on August 31, 2007. The garage door was open, and suddenly, a bright orange light appeared five degrees above the southern horizon. It did not move, but glowed for about ten seconds then disappeared. Then another one (or the same one) appeared about thirty degrees to the west. If it was the same object, it moved a good distance and stopped in less than a second. The second object glowed for about five seconds, and then disappeared. This kind of flashing back and forth continued for a few minutes, and then stopped.Thanks to MUFON CMS

Oregon Black Disk

LAKE OSWEGO -- At about 8:20 PM, on June 11, 2007, my wife and I were out walking in a field and unleashed our dog and I made a comment that this would be a good place for a UFO to land. I looked up and said, "What is that, pointing with my finger at a black object?" It was coming down toward us with a rotating movement of something around the object. It started to change shape and appeared to dance around at 1000 feet altitude and spin causing a very unusual but pleasurable sensation between my eyes and an uncontrollable feeling of happiness and laughter. I shook my head as to come out of a trance and saw a flash, like a large object creating a shadow on the ground flashing by. To our surprise the object was now directly in front of us, 25 feet high moving east at about 5-10 miles per hour behind some large fir trees. The object was a black saucer shape or hang glider shape with nobody underneath and it made no sound, it had a flat bottom, and gently rounded to the top. It was wobbling slightly as it moved. It then made a 70-80 degree turn and flew toward the lake. My wife was frightened because it was turning and heading for us at a high rate of speed and had a cloud around it. When I next saw the object it flew southeast toward Lake Oswego and got smaller and smaller until it was a tiny dot. Thanks to UFOINFO for this report.

Virginia Photos

QUANTICO -- Brandon McCain writes, "Taking the opportunity to shoot a star cleared night, I took several random photos of the beautiful sky." Fixed winged aircraft that were most likely military air traffic from Quantic was observed flying really low. It does not make sense that many aircraft would be that low in altitude, and flying fast going to Reagan Airport which is further North.

Shown here is probably one of our aircraft but it has unusual lights. My shots never produce light trails like this at night from regular over flights. I cannot explain this object that looks like a silver, bluish disc inside a very bright yellow light field-very nice. A lone dark red Orb was captured as well that night. Thanks to Brandon McCain UFO Photographer/Researcher

Washington Egg

ISSAQUAH -- We were driving east on Interstate 90 just before Issaquah on August 12, 2007; at 8 PM, when my wife noticed four black egg shaped objects above Lake Sammamish. The urgency in my wife's voice prompted me to get a view at what she was seeing. I turned around and saw the four objects hovering in the sky maybe 300 feet above the lake. In an instant, three of objects disappeared and then re-appeared around a mile west and were now in different formation.

Balloons don't disappear and that could be the only reasonable explanation available. I am a marine corps veteran and also an aviation mechanic. I have over six years in the field and have seen every type of military craft several times. We watched the objects for 25 minutes. ((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness via telephone, and found him to be a quite credible witness. PD))

Wisconsin a Week of Lights

HUDSON -- My 16 year old son saw a strange light in the sky that he called to my attention around 9:15 PM, on September 9, 2007. We live right on the border of Wisconsin and Minnesota and the Mississippi River is the divide. The MSP International airport is 30 miles away, so airplane sightings in the sky are constant. This particular night, what we saw wasn't like anything I had ever seen! My son was yelling to hurry when I looked straight out and saw this huge ball of light, flashing colors of light very fast! Red, blue, yellow, white, orange, very low to the ground and very close probably right above the river which is 11 blocks to the west down the hill. The light was flashing at a phenomenal speed, very bright! It hovered there in the same spot for 15 to 20 minutes. As this one hovered it was joined by another similar light, except this one was much smaller, the smaller one was only there for a couple of minutes and departed, first upwards and then to the south. We were able to snap four pictures, but the quality isn't good.

The next day my head was still abuzz from what I had seen and I charged the camera so that in case they returned that night, I would be ready. Around 9:00 PM, they returned...This time further away, but the same exact scenario. They were over near the airport. The main bigger light hovered again for about 15-20 minutes. This night it was joined by two other smaller lights, but they didn't stay very long and departed south. Myself and my two other sons snapped 100 pictures that night. They don't depict what we saw, instead they have an orb shape. We have continued to see these lights every night from 8 to 10 PM. They make no sound and are very bright, although I heard a low humming noise for five seconds, almost like electricity would sound. Shelly

West Virginia Mid-Ohio Valley has long history of UFO sightings By BRETT DUNLAP, Staff Writer

PARKERSBURG — The truth is out there. Parkersburg and West Virginia have had a long history of unexplained sightings in the sky with more than one person believing we have been visited by those from another world. One of the most recent reported sightings in the Parkersburg area took place on Sept. 4, 2005, said Brian Vike, director of HBCC UFO Research in Houston, British Columbia. At around 6 p.m. on that date, a group of 12 people saw a round star-like object in the sky. The witnesses said they were sitting outside talking after dinner when their attention was drawn to a powered parasail aircraft passing overhead. As they watched it, they noticed what appeared to be a star as the parasail passed in line with it. One of the witnesses commented it was odd to see a star that early in the day.The parasail moved on and the witnesses continued watching the “star” for several minutes before they lost track of it. Thinking it may have been a star or planet, they looked for the object on following days and evenings, but did not see it again. Snip Thanks to Brian Vike and Brett Dunlap

Australia Black Oval

BRISBANE - On September 4, 2007, at 12:30 PM, I noticed a black oval object flying at high speed through the dark clouds on a cloudy day. The object flew at the height of a plane, but it was flying at tremendous speed, too fast for any plane. The immediate decision for the object to change course, made me realize that this was no normal airplane. I decided to run into the house as the object was flying towards me. It was like a Goodyear Balloon that you see in the UK with advertisements on each side, but this was completely black with no wings. Thank you to UFOINFO for this report.

Canada UFO Photos

CAPE SPLIT, Nova Scotia -- On August 29, 2007, my girlfriend and I were out in the yard when we saw a UFO following behind a huge jet over the Bay of Fundy. I ran for the camera and managed to get a shot as it was following behind the plane. It did not appear to be connected to the plane and moved all around. After watching the object track along with the jet, it moved up out of sight and was gone. We also noticed some other strange objects in other photos; I will send them along as well. This is the same type of craft that we had seen before. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research

SIDNEY, B.C. -- I stepped outside at 9:10 PM, to have a smoke and saw a bright orange ball of light heading south directly at me on September 9, 2007. My wife came out and we watched it pass overhead. I grabbed the binoculars and we both had multiple turns viewing it. My wife describes it as an "orange jellyfish" that I agree with looked like that to me too but it had a structure to the leading edge of the sphere like a crescent. It was very brilliant, pulsated and jiggled slightly. It looked like a glowing orange jellyfish and flew south over Sidney at a increasing rate of speed dimming from view.

I have lived by this airport for many years and neither of us have seen anything remotely like that thing. The sighting lasted several minutes giving me time to grab a digital camera and take four pictures of it. The round object was rather large in the field of view with 10 X 50 binoculars. We estimate it was perhaps 1500 feet high and the size of a very large plane. When it passed by me it was only about 2 km's from the airport. I'm an amateur astronomer. Thanks to Brian Vike - Director of HBCC UFO Research.

SCARBOROUGH, ONTARIO -- Paul Shishis writes: This photo clearly illustrates a ball of light photographed. Today, at work on September 12, 2007, after 10:15 AM. I noticed high in the sky one object at a time heading south towards the Lake Ontario at twice the speed of a jet. I'm guessing between 3-10,000 feet in altitude. The skies were quite clear to see these anomalies. I can only submit to what has been witnessed and photographed. Obviously, something's happening, that common folks are not noticing in Scarborough's skies. Thanks to Paul Shishis

Haiti 12 Reasons Ufo Video Could Be Authentic

Dan Travers writes, "The Haiti video could be all faked, but I do pose the questions ]

1. There are "two reasonable solid appearing UFO crafts" in which the apparent video camera can "only keep one in view for a moment" as it is going over head.

2. The two UFO crafts further down the road but up in the air, appear to "pass each other - as in crossing paths". And then they move upwards.

3. And as they both move upwards, "both UFO crafts appear to tilt on their sides".

4. There are what looks like seemingly "seven other UFO crafts in the sky" at a distance that appear to look like lights. And these other two UFO crafts that were close up as "sold looking objects", become "distant and they also show up as lights in the sky as to join the others" at the end of the video. Some of these "UFO lights were also seen in the beginning of the video".

5. In the beginning of the video and after the UFO crafts appear overhead and sort of at a distance, "both times" the UFO crafts appear to "come from behind the Palm Trees".

6. You can also see "the Palm Trees move" as to indicate they are sort of "swaying".

7. Also, you can see at least two areas where the "video camera is focusing" when the UFO crafts are near the beginning of the video when "between but above the Palm Trees and the elevated small structure" and again, "when they rise in the sky towards the end." When any video is basically sharp and shows blurriness at intervals, it is a "sign of focusing".

8. In the beginning of the video, as the UFO crafts are near the Palm Trees, you can "hear a dog bark".

9. At the very end of the video, as the "nine UFO crafts are close to each other", you can "hear a person say ahhh or ohhh" as to indicate "amazement of the activities in the sky".

10. Also, you can "hear the noise of the UFO crafts" and the sound is harmonious as in: "approaching, sound gets louder; overhead, sound is at greatest; leaving, sound gets quieter".

11. You can "hear the noise of the person moving and holding or grasping the video camera" as it "sounds like flickering or fluttering".

12. As the UFO crafts are down the road but up in the sky, a split second just before they pass each other, the craft on the left which is lower and farther: "shows less lights underneath", and the craft on the right which is higher and closer: "shows more lights underneath". Then when the UFO crafts are almost equal for a split second, they both "show about the same amount of lights underneath". Then, a split second just after they pass but then one UFO craft is above the other UFO craft, the craft that was on the right that showed more lights, but "now on the left, shows less lights". And the craft that was on the left that showed less lights, but "now above, shows more lights".

This indicates three different angles: Horizontal by comparison, even by comparison and vertical by comparison showing to appear different number of lights underneath each of the two UFO crafts at three different times.

They want us to believe that the person who faked this video showed was able to show two UFOs, with one overhead and to have them both cross paths? And to tilt them on their sides? Add seven other UFO's in the distance? Have the two close up ones behind the trees? Make the trees move in the wind? Show the camera focusing? Have a dog bark and have a person sound out with amazement? To put in harmonious noise of the UFO's approaching, overhead and leaving? To put in noise from the camera of the person grabbing it? And to show different number of lights underneath the UFO's before, during and after passing based on angles? That's pretty good "trickery." There are holes in last week's French story in these files of the girlfriend of an alleged expert who claimed her boyfriend made it. I just hope it will be resolved very soon. Thanks to Dan Travers of Montrose, New York, Independent UFO Researcher, Member of MUFON

Editor's Note: Several highly respected Ufologists claim they believe the film is real. Others claim the palm trees are too alike to be real. One person UFOdc sent this note. "This image was generated in 3D software: The software used is quite advanced, was used to make video inclusive of the rendering of an environment, i.e.; Haiti. This same object is imaged in another piece of film." With enough money and expertise films can be faked. We need to interview the person who actually made the video.

Hong Kong V-Shaped Craft with Lights

POKFULAM -- It is New Year in Hong Kong. I was on the 13th floor balcony of my Baguio Villas Apartment facing the sea. My wife, 15 year old son, our guests, an accountant friend, and his wife were flicking my son's laser beam on and off. I saw appear out of nowhere, from directly above us a V-shaped craft with lights underneath. I shouted for everyone to look at the UFO as it flew north, silently and slowly. I was filled with emotion because at last my wife and kids would be able to witness what I had seen in the year 2000.

They were all stunned and we ended up in deep conversation about this. We were all stunned and bewildered with a new awakening. This craft was over a mile wide flying at very high altitude but very clear to look at. My size estimation is based on my last sighting when it was at 800 feet altitude measured against a well known Hong Kong building. It had solid wings with lights and vanished in front of our eyes after about seven seconds. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Italy Flying Metallic Object Photographed

POZZA DI FASSA, TRENTO -- The witness was taking pictures on August 15, 2007 of the valley from Rifugio Buffaure Mountain 2080 and when viewing back the pictures noticed this apparent metallic object. The witness assumes the object was at about 2000 meters altitude and one kilometer away. This is an image enhancement of the photo from last week. Thanks to Massimliliano Mattei ::

VERONA -- On August 13, 2007, we were watching the sky looking for some spectacular meteors at 10:35 PM, and saw nine orange objects flying in a "V" formation (like a flock of birds). They were moving very fast at high altitude and I looked at them using a 10 x 50 binoculars and was not able to see their shape. We saw them for about five seconds. Our local newspaper reported our sighting. Thanks to UFOINFO

Peru Meteorite Causes Sickness

PUNO -- The fumes from a meteorite that fell in Peru near the Bolivian border on Saturday is causing respiratory problems, vomiting, and headaches among local residents. There are fumes that we cannot determine, perhaps sulfur or ammonia," said Jorge Lopez, Health Director, admitting that there is "latent danger" of health woes. Seven doctors from Peru's Ministerio de Salud have been sent to examine the residents.

Seven policemen who went to check on the contamination also became ill and had to be given oxygen before being hospitalized, Lopez said. Boiling water started coming out of the crater and particles of rock and cinders were found nearby. "We have received a sample of highly magnetic dust, and indications of high iron content which confirms the initial impression that the object is a meteorite. (Translation (c) 2007 S. Corrales, IHU.

LISCOMBE CLOSE, DORCHESTER -- Richard L Peacocke writes, I'm a retired Senior Officer HM Prisons and a Healthcare Manager and currently a PhD student, at Bournemouth University. At about Midday GMT on Sunday 26 August 2007, a group of us were traversing Spetisbury Rings Iron Age Fort during a social club walk. I took several photos of other walkers but noticed nothing unusual. On getting home and looking at the shots on my Advent computer, I noticed some unusual marks on the frames.

Closer inspection using Adobe Photoshop Elements' zoom facility revealed visible intrusions on them that gather from a long way away flying almost above us and then dispersed to our west. The photo sequence shows this happening on a warm day using a Sony Cyber-shot 5.0MPix. I have attached the most clear shot. I had a previous similar contact: 1991-4 area investigator with the Centre for Crop Circle Studies, Dorset. Thanks to Richard L Peacocke DT1 2NS Member British Mensa.

WOLVERHAMPTON -- My two sons were out in the back garden on Friday, August 10, 2007, at 9.30 PM, picking up the washing when the yard suddenly lit up from above like flood lights. They looked up to see a bright light above them that they recorded on mobile video. The boys came in and told me what they had seen, so I went out and looked up at the sky in a NW location and I could see four round holes in the clouds with a darker shape above. The UFO was almost dome shaped with 500 lights and I tried to video this with a camcorder but it would not show up. The camcorder recorded evidence of the bright light shooting off at high speed.

WATFORD -- On August 17, 2007 at around 9:15 PM, I had finished up rehearsing when I saw an oblong shaped light in the sky. It was stationary, standing up on the narrow end (so that the long edges were horizontal). It wasn't really that high up as it was sitting just below the cloud cover. I don't think the well defined black lines were vapor trails as they did not diffuse in any way. The oblong shaped light then rotated 90 degrees to a horizontal position. The color of this shape turned into black and separated into two pieces. I also noticed two black objects hovered around the shape. They were slightly elongated circles, and a white vapor trail that looked like a missile headed for this shape. I called the manager of the studio and he also witnessed this. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research.

SWINTON - I went outside for a smoke on 'August 10, 2007, at 2:29 AM, and saaw six diamond shaped objects flying in formation directly above my house. Their distance was about one hundred feet. They where bright orange and seemed to pulsate. All six objects started to wobble then just disappeared at great speed over Manchester. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research.
