Sightings Slow at Christmas

Dedicated to my grandsons Georgie Filer V, and Eddie Pedrick who drowned in the Pool of No Return. More than six thousand drown in the US each year.

This week's files cover: Caveman Saw UFOs.Pope's exorcist squads will wage war on Satan, Ireland's Visitors From Another World, Cave paintings show UFOs? Mars Interesting Tracks, Mars Spiders Carved Winding Channels, and Mars Ice is melting.

Unidentified Aerial Phenomena were spotted over: Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New York, Tennessee, and Texas.

UFOs were also seen in Australia, Canada, Mexico, Poland, Romania, Scotland, 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.

The Bible states, "In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you." John 14-2

It is my belief that God has spread intelligent civilizations throughout the universe.

Best UFO Photo of 2007

Redundo Beach, California -- On March 31, 2007, the witness first sent the photo and provided the following one liner regarding the photo: "Saw silver object hovering over pier." The witness later stated, "The photo was taken on the dock beside the Redondo Beach Pier at 150 W. Torrance Boulevard. It was moving north to south at a high rate of speed (similar to jet speed). The object then stopped and hovered for five seconds. It was during this time that the witness took the photo. About two seconds later the object sped to the south and the witness lost sight of it. The camera used was a Kodak Easyshare DX7440 4 megapixel model.

Investigator's Notes: This photo is one of the best photos that I have seen of a classic silver flying disk. Not only does the photo show a flying saucer, but the flight characteristics described by the witness defy conventional aerial motion because the object was moving rapidly, stopped, hovered, and then sped off.

Butterfly Crop Circle Best of 2007

ASBURY -- Haileywood Butterfly Crop Circle is the best of the year in my opinion. Butterfly's were frequently seen with my grandson Georgie. This will be a very good year . Thanks to haileywood/haileywood2007.html and Image Lucy Pringle Copyright 2007

Cavemen Saw UFOs

Twelve thousand year old caves in France and Spain have drawings that appear like UFOs above the scenes of animal hunting.

Ireland's Visitors from Another World

NEWGRANGE – Throughout the world there is an undeniable pattern or fact ---that though out history and across widely diverse cultures there is an absolutely consistent tradition of visitations from another world. Newgrange is sometimes known as the first large structure built on Earth over 5000 years ago, Newgrange was built around 3200 BC, making it more than 600 years older than the Giza Pyramids in Egypt. The earliest accounts tells us that the Tuatha de Danann, gods of the Gaels, came from the sky on dark clouds on May 1, and erected Newgrange as a burial place for their chief, Dagda Mór, and his three sons.

Many similar disc shaped structures were erected in the Boyne Valley in the central area of Ireland and offered hospitality to countless guests in hundreds of stories. Ale, fruit and pigs were offered to travelers and were cooked and ready to eat for those who came to structure. These ancient peoples may have had a heavenly origin, or they may have seen flying discs in the sky and decided to copy their design in their structures

Most ancient religions talk of a superior race of beings from the sky. Dr. Jacques Vallee in his book the "Passport to Magonia on UFOs, Folklore, and parallel worlds" states, "Indeed, several writers have consistently pointed out the fundamental texts of every religion refer to the contact of the human community with a "superior race" of beings from the sky. This terminology is used, in the Bible, where it is said, "They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the Lord, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land. The visitors have the power to fly through the air using luminous craft, sometimes called "celestial chariots."

At Newgrange every year on December 21, on the Winter Solstice, when the sun rises marking the first day of winter it shines deep inside the 62 feet long capped passage mound. It terminates close to the center of the mound in main chamber with a corbelled vault 20 feet high and three recessed chambers.

The question is, though, how did a bunch of people who certainly did not have computers, sophisticated programs, or cranes build a tomb that has lasted this long with such precise engineering as to catch that one ray of light? The construction of Newgrange to capture this precisely calculated event involved a huge effort by the Neolithic community which acted as a calendar device, is now the most heralded cosmic event in the modern archaeological world.

Obviously there was someone 5000 years ago with an incredible mind for engineering or perhaps they really were extraterrestrials? It is clear that the megalithic monuments are astronomical constructs which have not yet been fully fathomed. It is estimated that the construction of the Passage Tomb at Newgrange would have taken a work force of 300 at least 20 years.

The builders were concerned with much more than just the solstice sun, they also had emphasis on the moon as well as the stars particularly Deneb and the constellation Cygnus and its cross. Interestingly, Newgrange is a wintering ground for the Whooper Swan which migrates from Iceland every October and returns in March and is frequently seen flying above the area.

Carvings and other megalithic tombs in the area have the same disc shape and celebrate the disc and spiral forms seeming to show a spinning UFO. The mound covers an area of over one acre and is surrounded by 97 kerbstones, some of which are richly decorated with megalithic art. Here is a photo of the kerbstone on the outside entrance, that to me looks like an alien.

The spiral is a universal symbol at the ancient stone sites, and can be found in abundance in the Boyne Valley passages, especially Dowth, Knowth and Newgrange.

Tuatha Dé Danann were later driven to the underworld where they still live, but in a just battle they will fight with blue lances and white shields and are sometimes referred to as the hosts of the air or aes sidhe.

It is obvious these ancient people were master astronomers, confidently able to mark the solstices and to understand the cosmic cycles like the Metonic Cycle of the moon and Precession of the Equinoxes. They were an advanced culture, with a keen understanding of the universe.

This understanding of the movement of the stars indicates the ancients had advanced knowledge that infers they actually came from space or were taught by beings with advanced technology. Photos courtesy of Chris Witcombe Sweet Briar College.

Pope's Exorcist Squads Will Wage War on Satan

By NICK PISA - Satanism is on the rise: Pope Benedict has ordered his bishops to set up exorcism squads to tackle the rise of Satanism. Vatican chiefs are concerned at what they see as an increased interest in the occult. They have introduced courses for priests to combat what they call the most extreme form of "Godlessness."

Each bishop is to be told to have in his diocese a number of priests trained to fight demonic possession. The initiative was revealed by Father Gabriele Amorth, the Vatican "exorcist-in-chief," to the online Catholic news service Petrus.

"Thanks be to God, we have a Pope who has decided to fight the Devil head-on," he said. "Too many bishops are not taking this seriously and you have to hunt high and low for a properly trained exorcist. "Thankfully, Benedict XVI believes in the existence and danger of evil - going back to the time he was in charge of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith."

He said the Pope wants to restore a prayer seen as protection against evil that was traditionally recited at the end of Catholic Masses.

Editor's Note -- There are indications aliens may represent both forces of good and darkness. "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6.

Mars Ice is Mostly Water Not Carbon Dioxide

Scientists have uncovered a major error in their calculations in atmospheric models of Mars dating back more than three decades. We have been told the ice on Mars is made of frozen carbon dioxide, now scientists discover it is mostly made of water ice. Caltech planetary science professor Andy Ingersoll and his graduate student, Shane Byrne now say a false impression of Mars ice dates back to 1966, when the first spacecraft to visit the planet determined that its atmosphere was composed chiefly of carbon dioxide.

Researchers at the time figured the ice caps were carbon dioxide, too, and that they interacted with the atmosphere by evaporation and condensation. Subsequently, the Viking spacecraft found that the north polar cap contained water ice beneath a 3-foot sheet of dry ice, and that the upper layer tends to melt away each summer. In error the belief persisted that the southern cap was all carbon dioxide.

Scientists examined pictures that Surveyor took of 26 feet deep circular pits called Swiss Cheese in south polar ice that are as big as a sports stadium to more than a half-mile. The consistent depth had been noted but not adequately explained. The floors of the pits are flat, and the pits grow 3 to 10 feet (1-3 meters) wider each year as ice melts. Their resulting hypothesis: At 26 feet down is a transition from dry ice to water ice, which would remain solid at much higher temperatures. The scientists conclude that a surface veneer of dry ice hides vast amounts of water ice at the south pole.

Mars ice caps are melting at an alarming rate. The permanent ice caps in Mars polar regions aren't quite so permanent as we thought," Each cap grows during its winter and recedes in summer, but are melting like those on Earth.

Editor's Note : These new findings means that life likely exists on Mars because where there is liquid water life finds a way to flourish. When the rovers landed on Mars they used parachutes to slow them to a soft landing.

We have been told there is virtually no atmosphere on Mars. Yet parachutes require atmosphere to function. Virtually all the photos coming from Mars show black and white or a very red landscape and sky. A few photos from the European Space Agency show a different landscape with blue skies.

Asteroid Heading for Mars

The chance of a football field-sized asteroid smashing into Mars on January 30, 2007, increased to 4 per cent scientists said after analyzing new data. Though still a small chance, some researchers are hoping for a cosmic smash since it would provide more data about the surface of Mars. There is was a one-in-75 chance that the asteroid could hit Mars.

Mars Spiders Carved Winding Channels

NASA scientists have discovered what might form some of the weirdest landscapes on Mars, winding channels carved into the Martian surface that scientists have dubbed "spiders," "lace" and "lizard skin."

But new observations from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, bolster theories that the intricate patterns may be sculpted by springtime gas from underneath the frozen-carbon dioxide polar ice cap. As the surface material is carried out by the rushing gas, channels are carved into the surface that form intricate patterns dubbed "spiders." Credit: NASA/JPL/University of Arizona

Strange Tracks John Schuessler writes, these are interesting tracks on Mars located at 59.7N, 325.7E. NASA explains these are dust devil tracks in along Nia Vallis in the Argyre Basin. Image by NASA/JPL/MOLA

Arkansas Aliens Among Us

WYNNE -- I know this is going to sound strange but here goes, my name is kevin martin 46 years old from I have and am in close interaction with a creature whom I call boss, I have seen him briefly once but it is constantly near me. He closely resembles a long dragonfly with only one set of wings right behind his head. He is about 4 to 6 feet long and about 6 inches diameter. He can become invisible to the naked eye and moves so fast the only thing you might see is a shadow out of the corner of your eye. He can move small objects like leaves, twigs, maybe bigger.

Sometimes at night he emits a greenish-blue almost like a black-light, when the moon is out, I guess not to draw attention to himself when its pitch black. I feel a noticeable rise in heat when he is close to me and something like a electromagnetic field like static electricity when he is in close proximity to me. If this doesn't sound too crazy then contact me and we can talk in length. Give me a phone number, haven't talked to anyone else about this due to the nature of this. Thanks Kevin Martin

Colorado Beam of Light Straight Up

DENVER -- There was an extremely bright ball of white light hovering in the northeast sky on December 25, 2007, at 7:30 PM MST, which then released a beam of light straight up north for about 5 seconds. It turned off and the ball of light disappeared. Two to three seconds later the bright ball of white light appeared again and shrunk quickly in size until no longer visible. The light shone right through the clouds with no problem. During this sighting my husband and I also saw a helicopter a few miles south-west and an airplane a couple miles southast of the UFO and were comparable to grains of sand compared to the size of the UFO.

Investigator's Notes: The witness has described something airborne and has compared it to conventional aircraft in the vicinity of the airborne phenomenon. The airborne lights were very large compared to the aircraft and were only briefly visible. The lights must have been at low altitude given the inclement weather conditions observed at the time of the sighting. Given this description I have no explanation for what the witnesses sighted. Thanks to Bill Puckett UFOS Northwest

Florida - Unexplainable Objects

SARASOTA -- I have been seeing objects moving around a lot in the skies these past 8 months. I enjoy laying outside at night to look at the sky and unwind at night, but lately it is more of a shocker looking at whats going on up there and wondering if anyone else is seeing any of this. I have tried to explain away many of the things I see, but now several people around me have seen them and they say no way is any of that a plane or such. Then this Friday, December 21, 2007, at about 1:30 AM, I went out onto my patio and as I walked out, there was a series of three extremely bright lights that powered up in a quick sequence about twenty feet in front of me and about 40 feet about the trees very quickly and then were gone in an amazing bright sequential flash, one two three.

Now you tell me, what could do that?

The lights were close to the ground but made no noise, and were just blindingly bright? The size of the lights was each about the size of a side of a mid-size car and they were triangular, but not pointed. The lights were rounded at the corners, but they were very bright, so I am sure that could skew my sight of the source, but they were all this shape and in a row and lit up simultaneously in a row, quite quickly and somewhat slanted upwards as though whatever it came from was headed up. It is shocking and I know what I saw.

Investigator's Notes: The witness has described something quite unusual. The inclement weather conditions mean that whatever the witness sighted was close. Apparently she has had other similar sightings in the past 8 months. Given available information I have no explanation for what was sighted. Thanks to Bill Puckett UFOS Northwest

Georgia Bright Light

WARNER ROBBINS -- I was driving north on I-75 near exit 142, which is close to Warner Robbins on December 26, 2007, about 8:15 PM. I was driving with my Mother, Brother, and Father on our way home to Atlanta.

At the point I saw the object, the interstate was on a downward slope and my car was at the top of a hill so that I could see down pretty far. The highway dipped down and a mile or so down the road it sloped back upward. There were lots of trees on each side of the highway, but there were no overpasses for about 3-4 miles north from where I was.

I was very alert, wide awake, and concentrating on the road ahead of me when from behind the tree-line on my left (west), a very bright, large, and extremely fast-moving star-like object appeared to come off the horizon and shot across the interstate at a 30 degree angle.

It proceeded to move at this very rapid rate until it was past the tree line on my right (east) and was out of sight. It seemed to disappear behind the clouds. The object looked to be about 2-3 miles away from me and its size and brightness remained constant for two seconds.

I ruled out a meteor due to its large size, point of origin (it started from ground level and ascended), angle, This went from ground up, and the fact that the object's size and brightness remained constant throughout. I drew a rough sketch of what I saw. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Illinois Triangle

SPRINGFIELD - On December 30, 2007, it was a cloudless, clear night with bright stars. As I stood in my back yard with my dog looking at the stars, I saw four bright, fast-moving white-blue lights in a delta shape. Two lights were evenly spaced two feet apart at arm's distance - on each side, flashed briefly, moved north, flashed again, and repeated this pattern about 5-6 times as they moved to the north overhead. There was no noise, and no reflection...then they disappeared.

Duration of this event was about 30 seconds. The lights were about as big as those of a streetlight - but far higher in the sky. This object was completely foreign to me; the closest thing I could compare it to would be the lights on the underside of an airplane. However, there was no engine noise, no jet trail, it was lower than any plane would fly and this is nothing like I've EVER seen before.

KANKAKEE - On December 29, 2007, at 9:06 PM, I stepped out my back door and looked at Mars and the three stars that make up the Belt of Orion. I saw a formation of pinpoints of light that were of the magnitude of dim stars, moving in a southeasterly direction in a straight line, amber in color. I think there was three to five of them flying in exact formation. They traversed the sky in only seconds. They were silent. They were not aircraft with strobe lights, as there were some of these in the sky. I cannot be sure if it was a single object or three to five objects, close into the earth in space or could have been a craft flying at high altitude within the atmosphere. I feel like it was a craft of some sort, but since the sighting lasted only one or two seconds I cannot be sure. Thanks to MUFON CMS

New Hampshire Strange Light

PEASE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT -- On December 29, 2007, at 10:45 PM, a light beam resembling a car light beam (it was a broad band of light) was seen entering a cloud that was at the level of Orion's Belt. There was no craft seen nor any noise heard. The height was over 20,000 feet. There were no red or green lights that shone at any time. The light entered the cloud after traveling about the size of a pea at arm's length. My conversation with Pease Base Operations Officer confirmed my facts and weather information. They said they had no incoming aircraft at that time of night nor did he know of any radar confirmation of the object. Thanks to Art Champoux

New Jersey Bright Light

FRENCHTOWN -- On December 25, 2007, my wife, and two sleeping daughters were driving home from a Christmas Eve dinner, at 12:20 AM, north on State Highway 29 which runs north and south along the Delaware River. We were the only car on the road about four miles south of Frenchtown, when I spotted directly in front of us moving from sky to land was an enormous globe (sphere) of perfectly round shape, very, very bright with no discernable other color. The object was moving at an extreme speed toward the tree line on our right or across from the bank of the Delaware River. The sighting lasted 3 or 4 seconds.

There was no impact, explosion or any other sign of disruption on the ground. My wife and I both saw the same thing. I have never seen such a sight before. Neither of us had been drinking. I contacted the local police and nobody had reported seeing this object. There are no airports, military bases, industrial sites or power plants in the area. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Depiction on New Jersey Sighting

PASSAIC -- A very low and huge object flew over my car on December 27, 2007. I was working nights at a data entry company located off Route 46 in Little and was headed home. This night there was a lone car traveling really slow in front of me. I thought that was strange until I looked up and saw this HUGE object flying over this road, it was flying really slow. It looked like it just came out of the woods. I was a little scared because this thing made no noise at all and it just glided across so smoothly. I didn't want to get out of my car because I thought something else would happen. This object had a rectangular shape, metallic and had red bubble-like lights under the aircraft.

It was flying at the height of the trees. I called the police station and asked had they received any phone calls regarding anything strange happening over the area I just came from. This officer made me feel really stupid, he said, "What a like a UFO" he was being a real jerk about my question. Since then I really don't talk to anyone about this night. Thanks to MUFON CMS

New York A Bright Orange Glowing Cylinder

GENEVA - On December 29, 2007, at 7:28 AM, I had just gone outside to have a smoke and saw the sun was about to start its daily rise. As I gazed around the skies looking at the clouds and noticed that there was a brightly-lit orange glowing cylinder-shaped object. It even glowed when it went under the patches of the dark-gray clouds. It was traveling east, made no noise and left no trail behind it. I was able to see this thing for several minutes until it became a tiny speck. I figure it was about 10,000 feet up and about 2 miles east of my home and it must've been very large and it was about the length of my index finger held at arm's length when I first noticed it.

LONG ISLAND -- I went out to have a smoke a bit after 2:00 PM on Christmas day and watched an object cruising over for about 15-20 seconds this time, and another about an hour later. The second time I went to get my phone out to record it and when I looked up in the north/northeast sky it was gone. I saw it moving strangely so I knew I had little time to record it. This would make a total of four times I've been able to see these objects that are not aircraft. There are really truly some strange things in the skies over Long Island! Thanks to "G" MUFON CMS

Tennessee Sound from Sky Creates Terror

Strange UFO circles yard in Tennessee.

CHATTANOOGA -- We heard an unimaginable noise above our car on the interstate. December 26, 2007, on 7:30 PM, the car shook. We saw lights in a row that moved at a high rate of speed in sharp turns and went straight into the air. It happened too fast to get a picture.

Investigator's Notes: Did the witnesses experience a low flying jet over the freeway? This is not likely an aircraft they are not supposed to fly over 250 knots below 10,000 feet over populated areas. Thanks to Bill Puckett UFOS Northwest

Texas Blue Ball Flashes and Light Video

AUSTIN -- I have been getting pictures for a while now of unidentified and strange objects in, Texas. Usually they are in the background of my pictures or off in the distance. I have also seen a few lately. But today, I got it on tape. I kept very still and used the roof of my car to base my arms. I held the camera very still with both hands. I am facing towards Austin Bergstrom Airport area. Thanks to Michael

ARLINGTON - On December 29, 2007, I was at Six Flags over Texas assisting a man with his camera and noticed a white flash like a camera flash. We looked up and saw the blue ball with a green glow around it with a white tail. It was moving across the sky from the southeast around Duncanville and moved north of me and wrapped around to the west toward Fort Worth. I was looking north and it pretty much moved east to west.

The ball was about the size of a marble in the sky and seemed to be as high as an airplane. It took about 5 or 10 seconds to go across the sky. I didn't see where it finished because there was a roller coaster ride blocking our view. The tail was about 5 times the length of the ball. It did not make a sound. The guy next to me saw it and said "you don't see those everyday. That was pretty awesome". He said it looked like a big green comet. I mentioned that I saw a blue comet and he said that he saw it too except it looked more green to him. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Brazil Strange Object Video

Patty Donahue writes, "Have you seen this video?
Might be a remote controlled toy?...but the spikes are freaky looking when they come out on this thing."

The video was captured in Brazil and added to you tube December 27, 2007, the video shows a bunch of screaming kids in Brazil who watch a strange object flying that at first looks like a bird but remains unidentified. Their yelling seems genuine as the object flies over head.

Canadian sightings so far for 2007 is 350 cases.

NORTH TRYON -- When Tony Quigley and his wife Marie, just east of the Confederation Bridge, saw a dark spiral in the sky they went for the video camera. "When we first saw it, it was going so slow. We said, is it a meteorite, or what the heck is it? So when we did start to tape, it was above the cloud and that's the part we missed," said Marie Quigley. Environment Canada and the Transportation Safety Board of Canada cannot explain just what it was a PEI couple filmed in the Island skies on Wednesday evening. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research,

PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND -- Chris Rutkowski wrote, I spoke with the witness of the UFO case. On December 26, 2007, at about 5:30 PM, he and his wife saw a dark object spiraling towards the ground near the horizon. They grabbed their video camera and began filming, and what was caught on film is remarkable. A blackish object giving off "smoke" was seen, which the witnesses likened to a "plane in trouble."

The actual object was difficult to see, but the witness thought it was shaped like a ball. It was descending at a shallow angle, in a corkscrew motion, moving away from the witnesses, towards the west. Eventually, a long, black contrail was formed. The witnesses lost sight of the actual object, and it did not seem to actually reach the ground before it became too dark to observe it, lasting more than half an hour in total. The link to the video is at:

HALIFAX -- Chris Rutkowski writes the other Maritime case is from December 21, 2007, at 6:05 PM when a helicopter pilot was flying near Halifax when he saw a bright white light flying at a much higher altitude. It was in sight for about five minutes.

What's most intriguing about this case is that when the helicopter pilot notified the nearby control tower, they contacted NORAD, who confirmed that they painted the helicopter as well as a "possible UFO" at the location and direction indicated by the pilot, but at 6:18 PM local and fading from radar at 6:22 PM.

UFOs in Mexico City During Recent Blackout?

UFO over Mexico shot December 2007.

Ana Luisa Cid report ,"On December 11, 2007, dozens of districts in the Mexican capital and some municipalities in the state of Mexico were affected by a 25-minute blackout caused simultaneous explosions in three electric power stations. The Ministry of Civil Protection said causes of the explosions, are unknown. They took place at the substations of the Nonoalco and Tlatelolco plants, as well as the one located in Ecatepec.

The incident was reported at 23:30 hours and people living next to the Tlatelolco Unit stated that they heard loud explosions within the plant shortly before the blackout, which in turn caused several flashes. A terrorist attack against the facilities of the Luz y Fuerza company has been officially discarded.

I had a personal sighting at 11:30 PM, in the company of my family as I drove along Avenida de los Cien Metros in the Gustavo A. Madero district. An object made up of two shining lights, one sphere above and another below, both of them very large and shiny, traveling at relatively low altitude. The object remained static. It was, however, difficult to capture it on video due to the motion of the car and the impossibility of pulling over on an expressway.

It should be noted that this is not the first time that the UFO phenomenon is linked to blackouts in Mexico. Renowned researcher Pedro Ferriz states that then-president Luis Echeverria told him that he and his wife were witnesses to a sighting during the blackouts in Cuernavaca, Morelos, on September 23, 1965.

New Zealand UFO reported on Farm

WAIKATO -- UFO sighting was unveiled at an international conference in Rotorua in September. UfocusNZ, featured by the Waikato Times in July, is an organization which catalogues and researches UFO sightings. Founder Suzanne Hansen of Tauranga and Hamilton air traffic controller Graeme Opie both spoke at the Future Perspectives conference, attended by about 200 delegates. They presented examples of their research including a new sighting at Waitetuna Valley, east of Raglan,

A couple said they saw a UFO moving up a valley on their farm, at 8 AM on March 26. Interviewed separately, both described the craft as about 30 meters long, cylindrical with pointed ends, a bright metallic silver with evenly spaced oval shaped windows. The object had horizontal wings. Snip Thanks to Geoff Taylor and the Waikato Times

Poland: Round objects over Power Plant

BELCHATOW -- On August 14, 2007, a witness from Czestochowa was able to observe two round whitish objects that were constantly appearing and reappearing for about 3 minutes over a power plant in Belchatow - Europe's largest thermal power plant located in Central Poland. The witness states, “I saw two enormous round objects between chimneys of the power plant. I saw them with my naked eye” - he stated. - They were in the approximate size of ping-pong balls”.

The witness quickly grasped his digital camera (Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5) and took photos of some of the elusive objects. “After grasping the camera and applying zoom I noticed that those objects had whitish surface” - the witnesss said. “Then I began to photograph them trying to catch a glimpse of them at the same time. I'd like to emphasize that the objects were disappearing at regular intervals (about 20 sec.) and then reappearing. Their movement was steady and firm. Finally, only one of those objects remained visible for the next 15 sec. Then both objects were no longer visible and disappeared in plain sight in the clear sky.”

UFOs keeps appearing over manufactures and power plants all over Poland. Thanks to Piotr Cielebias a UFO investigator and writer. He lives in Poland and reports on sightings in and around Poland and area. He is part of the NPN - and the "NOL - the Eastern European UFO Journal" - [

Romania Strange Flying Object Photo

CLUJ NAPOCA -- I am an amateur photographer. I've been taking photographs seriously for 20 years and was attempting to photograph a view of the city with the snow on the rooftops on December 16, 2007, at 3:37 PM. I took two shots above the city looking southeast 16 seconds apart, hand held at 1/13 of a second on a canon eos 300d digital camera. It wasn't until I got home and uploaded the images and saw the object above the distant buildings. It's not a dust spot or a speck on the lens. On enlarging the object it appears cigar or oval shaped with no hard lines. Ten minutes after the shot was taken an aircraft operated by Carpatair the Romanian airline landed at the local airport. Thanks to Piotr Cielebias

UK/Scotland 1955 UFO Photograph

Paul Shishis writes, "I have a photo to share that was taken between 1965-1966 of a family in Scotland. It clearly illustrates a certain UFO in the background. Now two things come to mind about this photo. In 1966, there was one of the biggest known UFO wave around the world. Secondly, Scotland is known as today's hotbed of UFO activity. Now I'm curious of a connection of my Scottish wife, as seen in the photo. How much stranger does this get? Like the word UFO**** U Find Out ! The answers are unfolding and so is TRUTH of our surroundings . BIG Thanks again for Filer's Report * Paul Shishis

UK/England UFO Photo

GRIMSBY -- I'm sending you this picture I took on November 26, 2007, at 2:16 PM, overlooking the dockside. My intention was to get a decent picture of the Lincoln Castle boat you can see clearly on an overcast day. I wasn't too impressed with the dullness of the pictures and had to take it through a steel mesh fence. I just took this one photo and didn't bother unloading to my computer for a week or so after the event, but even before I did, I noticed something in the viewfinder that shouldn't be there.

The object looks like the hubcap type videotaped in Mexico! The digital camera is a Photosmart E427 and it was set at 2 Megapixel, auto focus. I have no idea what the object is in the sky. Grimsby is located at 53.57 Degrees North Longitude: 0.08 Degrees West

Investigator's Notes: I wish that I could identify the object in the photo. I don't know what the object is. Several reports have been received during the past few years whereby witnesses take photos and later discover anomalous airborne objects in the photos. Thanks to Bill Puckett UFOS Northwest

WALES -- Laura Wright, of the South Wales Echo reports: Sightings of unidentified flying objects have soared in the last month, with at least two a week seen by airline pilots in South Wales. Dancing lights, large craft and mysterious flashes are among dozens of UFOs sighted above Cardiff and the South Wales Valleys in the last few years. And only four days ago, on the night of Christmas Day, a couple saw spherical orange lights in the sky above their home in the capital.

According to figures released under the Freedom of Information Act, the Ministry of Defence has looked into 13 reports of UFOs in South Wales in the past three years. Several other sightings have been posted on UFO websites but it is thought that many more go unreported. Thanks to Laura Wright, South Wales Echo

CARDIFF -- My friend and I were sitting at our desks in the office that looks over the Cardiff suburb of Llanishen on December 17, 2007, and we have a great view of huge sky above us. My friend exclaimed that there was something in the sky - asking what it was - and I looked up. We saw in the cloudless sky a fat ball of white smoke/cloud, seemingly quite wispy moving across the sky. It was moving at considerable speed and appeared to have a triangular 'tail' coming out of it - on the right as you looked at it.

Afterwards, when I drew it, someone commented that it looked like an ice cream cone that was on its side. When we saw it, it seemed like a cloud doing an impression of a fat meteor! It was fairly big in the sky and really excited and baffled by it! We ran to the window on the adjacent side of the building as the object appeared to be moving that way. It looked fairly underwhelming from the new angle and appeared to be disintegrating. The only explanation I could think of was that it was a smoldering and burning weather balloon. I took the photo on my phone but should have taken a video clip to show the movement. Thanks to MUFON CMS

WELWYN GARDEN CITY, HERTFORDSHIRE -- Whilst it might seem utterly outlandish, I am being deadly serious when I say that the clue is in the name of the location. The name of the street really is Kirklands, and I live on the corner of Knightsfield and Kirklands and took this photo on December 29, 2007. Thanks to Steve

New Book "UFOs, the Military and Intelligence"

Timothy Good has written A compelling exposé of the world's greatest secret. Based on many years of research by one of the world's most respected authorities on alien phenomena, Need to Know draws on top-secret documents, reports of encounters with huge craft of unknown origin reported by pilots and naval officers, and interviews with high-ranking military and intelligence insiders.

This book is full of revelations, including the alarming escalation of aircraft accidents following military attacks on UFOs, the disappearance of hundreds of military aircraft during UFO encounters and recent near-misses with UFOs.


The proof, such as recovered alien vehicles and communication with their crews, is there but it is being denied to the general public, as well as to an overwhelming majority of scientists. But Need to Know provides a wealth of new documents and oral evidence, from all over the world, supporting the existence of alien intelligence and UFOs – and by focusing on military and intelligence evidence it is hard to refute. More information is on his website: or Pegasus Books
