Mars Has Good Soil

This week's Files report: Mars Hit by Ancient Meteorite, NASA Scientists Confirm Mars Has Water and good soil, Possible Mining on Mars,Admiral Hillenkoetter correction and letter to Congress,

Unidentified Aerial Phenomena were spotted over: Alabama, California, Louisiana, Colorado, Michigan, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, and Washington.

UFOs were also seen in Australia, Canada, Chile, Mexico, UK, and the Venezuela.

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 while 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.

Mars Hit by Ancient Meteroite

Three teams of astronomers are proposing that Mars once survived the impact of some giant object from space that divided the entire planet's surface into two totally distinct regions: It must have been the biggest blast in the history of our solar system - the impact of a planetary bomb as powerful as a billion tons of TNT that scarred Mars nearly 4 billion years ago.

And if the theories are right, it blasted out the biggest crater that any planet has ever survived. It was a convulsion far bigger than the puny one that drove the dinosaurs to extinction on Earth only 65 million years ago. One region of the surface is the huge oval-shaped scar of the impact itself, covering more than a third of the Martian surface and including all the vast low-lying lands of the planet's far north where the Phoenix spacecraft is now digging up buried nuggets of ice. The other is the even larger highland region to the south, marked by deep canyons, high mountains and the remains of giant volcanoes.

The huge, dark elliptical scar with its thinner Martian crust in the north is more than 6,500 miles long and 5,300 miles wide, and few craters have punctured its smooth plains. Astronomers call it the Borealis Basin.

The other, covering virtually the entire southern hemisphere, averages up to 5 miles higher in elevation and is heavily cratered - an indication that its surface, untouched by the impact, is older than the northern lowlands, scientists believe.

Astronomers from UC Santa Cruz, Caltech and MIT are proposing in three separate reports in the journal Nature Today that a giant meteorite or comet more than 1,200 miles in diameter - sped toward Mars at up to 21,600 miles an hour, crashed at a steep slant into the planet about 3.9 billion years ago, and blasted out the huge elliptical scar that now forms all of the planet's northern lowlands, while leaving the southern highlands relatively undamaged. And the giant crash, the scientists agreed, could even have happened without melting any large part of the planet. Said Nimmo in a statement from Santa Cruz: "The impact would have to be big enough to blast the crust off half the planet, but not so big that it melts everything." Thanks to NASA

Tests show Mars soil could grow crops

For ten years these files have claimed Mars has water and life based on out observations of Mars photography and analysis of Dr. Gilbert V. Levin's Viking experiments in 1976. In conversations with Dr. Levin and other scientists we feel it is evident that at least microbial life exits on Mars.

NASA reports, "Scientific tests of the recent Phoenix Lander soil samples indicate Mars soil could grow crops, has less acidity than expected with traces of magnesium, sodium, potassium and chloride. The analyzed soil resembles the upper dry soils in Antarctica. Sam Kouvanes of the Tufts University, Phoenix co-investigator and project leader for the wet chemistry investigation, explained that the one-inch into the surface layer the soil is very basic, with a pH of between eight and nine. The first chemistry results from Mars' northern plain reveal an environment more hospitable to life than some scientists had predicted, one that might allow future colonists to grow crops as familiar on Earth as asparagus and green beans. "We've found nutrients that could support life."

The test did not turn up the prize that the $420 million mission was sent to find: complex organics that would indicate Mars once was, or still might be, habitable.

Further, even though the soil chemistry would provide some nutrients for life, any future crops would have to be grown underground, because the meager Martian atmosphere lets in too much of the sun's destructive ultraviolet rays. Thanks to NASA

Mars Hale Crater Has Possible Mining

Gordon J. Gianninoto, writes, " I decided to play with the Mars Hale Crater photo to get rid of the smoothing and, for myself, see if I could duplicate the views showing almost the entire crater floor developed with roads and buildings and plots of land and I was quite successful. But then I decided to look more closely at the terrain above the crater, and much to my surprise, I discovered the crater above and to the left of Hale has clear evidence of roads and excavation typical of mining minerals. Then I noticed the face of the ridge above the right side of the crater shows terracing and mining typical of excavation of minerals.

Then inside the center, but at the top area of the crater view I discovered more evidence of mining and terracing, and, [although it is not possible to see more], ridge lines indicate that it is possible that a road valley links what I call areas 1, 2, and 3. Actually the best view I got was by going higher contrast and then making a negative color image. It is very clear the floor of the crater has roads, buildings, plots of land in an impressive area. I think my high contrast B&W conversion shows this most clearly at the lower right hand corner of Hale crater. I know some of the work you did shows multistory buildings with entrances and driveways and balconies, so all in all, Hale Crater is an amazing and busy place. All in all, this seems to be a major developed area of considerable size with, I would guess, a matching population. How anyone can look for "life" on Mars the size of microbes when this picture, when you get rid of the NASA blurring, looks more like flying over Colorado.

You have my permission to use my photo enhancement work, and or my ideas as you see fit. I have been working with digital photography since 1996 and have been a professional photographer since I was 12. I state unequivocally that none of these 'development areas' in Hale Crater are artifacts such as pixelization. This is the real deal. Clearly this photo was abused by the space agencies to hide what is really there.

At one point Mars was clearly a planet with a large percentage of surface water. Then something happened to destroy that. I would guess this development has occurred since then. But who knows? Thanks to Gordon J. Gianninoto.

Comments - I have noticed that the aliens clearly mark their mining sites with large letters or symbols, such as the letter H or open A above. In honor of Alex Cavalari who passed away on June 28, 2008, who worked tiressly to reveal the truth about aliens and UFOs I would like to name this crater Alex.

We had our TV show for several years in Atlantic City. Alex on the right had a brilliant mind and developed many electrical devices, often photographed UFOs, and built UFO websites. He will be greatly missed by us all. Our condolences to his wife, Jeannie.

Life Was Found on Mars in 1976

The most compelling evidence of extraterrestrial life - microbial life - was already found on Mars. On July 20, 1976, after a 10-month journey 200 million miles from Earth, the first Viking Lander unfolded its spindly legs and touched down on the Martian surface. In a short time, the Viking camera began transmitting the Martian landscape showing blue skies and a scene similar to Arizona. There was much celebration and Indian tribes such as the Hopi claimed they were brought here from Mars eons ago. Babylonians most feared sky god was from Mars and the Egyptians had named Cairo after Mars.

Six weeks later, Viking Lander 2 set down in a more northerly location. Each Lander contained equipment for the detection of Martian life forms. One experiment examined gas changes inside a small chamber, where a portion of Mars soil was exposed to water vapor and a cocktail of nutrients. Another experiment looked for the synthesis of organic substances in separate Martian soil samples. The third experiment, the "labeled release" experiment, supplied a diluted solution of five nutrients, tagged with radioactive carbon to Martian soil.

The labeled release experiment was the brainchild of Dr. Gilbert V. Levin, who first brought the possibility of testing for life on Mars to the attention of NASA officials back in 1959. Levin, a Ph.D. in environmental engineering, knew that his invention of microbial radiorespirometry could be adapted for interplanetary missions. He called his invention Gulliver, remembering how Swift's fictitious character travelled enormous distances and discovered tiny Lilliputian creatures. His labeled release experiment, was chosen as one of three life detection experiments on the Viking mission. The book "Mars: The Living Planet," indicates the fix was in for the Viking Mission from the start.

When the first images from Mars arrived at JPL headquarters, they revealed a multi colored landscape eerily reminiscent of Arizona, complete with a blue sky. NASA staffer Ron Levin (no relation) looked on in amazement as a technician went from monitor to monitor, changing the settings so that the landscape and sky presented a uniformly orange and red appearance. Levin followed the technician, changing the settings back, only to be "chewed out" by James S. Martin Jr., Viking project manager.

Gil Levin later discovered that the order to change the monitor settings came from the top. One can only speculate why NASA wanted the Earth-like scenery twiddled with.

Shortly after landing the Viking 1's surface sampler arm extended and scooped up a small quantity of material. Retracting into the Lander, the arm then apportioned the sample for testing in the three experiments. On the eighth day of the Viking mission, team leader Gilbert Levin injected its sample with radioactively tagged nutrients. According to Barry DiGregorio, author of Mars: The Living Planet, the radioactivity was measured every 16 minutes. "By early evening on July 30, it was obvious that a significantly positive reaction was occurring. It looked very similar to the response from Earth soils that contained microorganisms." It appeared that something was metabolizing the nutrients. I spoke with Levin who definitely believes they discovered life on another world but it was not politically desirable to announce.

Over a two-month period on the Viking Mission, Levin and Straat conducted nine experiments. For his control samples, Levin heated the samples to 160 degrees Celsius, to destroy any living material that might be responsible for the observed reaction. When these samples were supplied with radioactively tagged nutrients, there were no reactions, consistent with the organic chemistry interpretation. Levin also discovered that the reactions seemed critically sensitive to a heating between 46 to 51 degrees, the range that might kill living organisms, but which have no effect on most inorganic compounds. I talked to Levin a few years ago and he is more convinced than ever that life was found on the planet in 1976.

The LR experiment indicated a strong possibility for the existence of microorganisms on Mars, why would NASA be so opposed to this interpretation. NASA decided that the evidence for life on Mars was ambiguous, life on Mars would change much of what we know about biology, the Theory of Evolution, life on other planets, and science in general so it was denied. Orthodox NASA scientists viewed the labeled release findings as the result of highly reactive compounds, called superoxides and peroxides that are only theoretical constituents of the Martian soil.

Although spending billions to reach Mars none of the subsequent missions have carried life detection equipment to settle the debate. In July of 2001, Joseph Miller, Ph.D., in the department of cell and neurobiology at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California, announced, "The gas release signal itself not only had a circadian rhythm, but it had a precise circadian rhythm of 24.66 hours - which is the length of a Martian day." This data virtually proves that microbial life was actually found back in 1976. Miller. "I'd say it was a good 75 percent certain then, but with this discovery, I'd say it's over 90 percent. And I think there are a lot of biologists who would agree with me."

NASA's new announcement of water on Mars, that it was once a watery planet indicates it won't be long before they will spend another billion to confirm life on Mars. Thanks to Barry DiGregorio,

Correction to Statement Attributed to Admiral Hillenkoetter.

Timothy Good writes, "That statement you attribute to Adm. Hillenkoetter in FF #26, was in fact made by Col. Joseph J. Bryan III, first chief of the CIA's Psychological Warfare Staff and former aviation advisor to NATO, in a letter to Maj. Donald Keyhoe. Thanks to Timothy Good.

Hillenkoetter sent a very similar letter to Congress that was reported in the New York Times on 28 February 1960 stating, "Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about the UFOs said former CIA Director and Vice Admiral Hillenkoetter. "But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense." He also charged that 'to hide the facts, the Air Force silenced its personnel' through the issuance of a regulation. 'I urge immediate Congressional action to reduce the dangers from secrecy about Unidentified Flying Objects,' he continued. "Two dangers are steadily increasing: 1. The risk of an accidental war from mistaking UFO formations for a surprise Soviet attack. 2. The danger that the Soviet Government may, in a critical moment, falsely claim the UFOs are a secret Russian weapons against which are defenses are helpless." Thanks to Timothy Good and to his great new book "Need to Know" on page 260.

Alabama - Filming The Moon Produces Two UFOs

MOBILE -- On June 19, 2008, the witness states, "I went down to the bay at 8:45 PM, to try my luck at obtaining a decent moon picture." The moonrise was quite stunning and I was able to get some pictures along with several shots of the I-10 interstate bridge along with the moon. After returning home, I found something strange in the two bridge/moon pictures. An object appears just above the interstate bridge in both pictures. It appears to be moving slowly as these are long exposures and the distance traveled by the cars on the bridge can be seen by the streaking red taillights. Thanks to Brian Vike, HBCC UFO Research

California - Strange Clouds and Bright Lights

BALBOA ISLAND - On June 14, 2008, Judith Watson took a series of photos over the Pacific Ocean of these strange cloud like objects that appeared to come out of the ocean. Some dark objects that might be UFOs were also present. A series of photos by various photographers have shown strange objects north of Catalina Island. Thanks to Judith Watson.

HUNTINGTON BEACH -- My girlfriend and I recently saw a UFO about 1:00 AM, on June 19, 2008, in the Orange County area. We went outside my girlfriend's house in Fountain Valley when I noticed a helicopter, and to my right, I noticed a bright white light, with a tint of blue. My girlfriend was drawn to it more than me and then she asked me if it was a plane. I quickly turned and saw that it looked like a "fireball" but not of the color or a fireball. I started to say "No honey, I don't think it's...." then it disappeared. Thanks to MUFON CMS

I had purchased my self a new camera a ( Olympus SP-570 UZ 10 megapixcel) not the best camera for the job I'm sure but I had gotten myself interested in UFOs and I would go out and look at the clouds and sky more often and take pictures extending my lens into the sky and I took lots of pictures and this one I found most interesting. It gets more detailed once downloaded on a pc. I do not know what this is. Through Mufon I am known as "schurle." Thanks to MUFON CMS

DANA POINT -- On June 21, 2008, at 1:15 AM (military time) my co-worker pointed out a light in the sky over the ocean seeming to be halfway between Dana Point and Catalina. It was a disk shaped craft that moved side to side in an inverted arc very fast. It was moving as though it was swinging on a pendulum. When the bottom swung up towards us it was very bright and very large. It had round blue lights along the outside of the circle and a red one in the middle. It moved back and forth for about a minute and disappeared behind a building. I have never seen a craft move like that and it was not of a shape I recognize. The lights were not blinking and they were very clear when the bottom turned towards us. When viewing from the side it was just blurry light swinging back and forth. I have never reported anything like this before because I have never seen anything that I could not explain with logic. Please let me know if anyone else saw it or if there is a logical explanation for what I saw.

Comments: No, there is no logical explanation for what the witness saw assuming his observations are accurate. We have received two other reports from the Dana Point area in 2008. One sighting occurred on May 4, 2008 and the other on May 26, 2008 . Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

Lousiana Solid Red Lights

My wife, and my oldest daughter and I were driving east on June 27, 2008, coming from shopping and we noticed two strange solid red lights traveling north that I thought was a helicopter, but it was moving too slowly. It was silent and hovering slowly above the tree line about a mile away. We thought that is was not like anything we had seen before, because the lights were solid and stacked one on top of another with a space in between and the object seemed to be very large, maybe the size of a Greyhound bus. We turned north onto another road and then east again, moving closer to the object as the object descended downward and we lost site of through the trees. But this isnt the first time we've seen UFO's in this area, but it was the first time my oldest daughter saw one. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Michigan - Photo

CEMENT CITY -- I didn't see the possible UFO until reviewing the hundreds of digital photographs taken over the course of one hour in a southern Jackson County Cemetery.

I shot with a Sony Cybershot DSC-H5, which is sensitive to the near-IR, and have been doing so for the past few months with a Lansing-area ghost hunting group (with some success). I visited a local cemetery for the first time to do some 'ghost fishing', i.e. go into a cemetery and shoot hundreds of digital photos in rapid succession to see if I capture anything anomalous.

On June 26, 2008, I shot for an hour starting at 8 PM. The only strange thing I photographed in the 500+ photos was possibly a UFO and not a ghostly apparition, mist or bright orb...the typical graveyard paranormal fare. When I initially looked at the image, I thought that perhaps I photographed the hat of a ghost materializing...but the closer I looked at it and the more detail that Photoshop pulled out of the source image, the more it appeared to possibly be a UFO. I've attached a cropped photo with magnified detail...a full, unaltered, un-processed image can be sent if you so desire. Thanks to MUFON CMS

New Hampshire - Blue Beams

LINCOLN -- On June 20, 2008,I sighted an object that had green, blue beams of light coming from it. It was medium sized and then I saw others hurtling down from it. It circled around about ten times in a 5,000 foot range of the houses. It flew north, south, east and west before coming to a stop and bolting off at the altitude of maybe 50 to 60 thousand feet. Then it bolted off at outrageously high speeds and disappeared before I could take a picture of the actual UFO. I did take a picture of where it was and it's color was tea-like and brownish.

Comments: The witness has described something quite unusual assuming that his report is accurate. Subsequent information revealed that the witness is only 10 years old. He said that he found several similar reports while looking at various UFO websites. Given the age of the witness this report shouldn't entirely be discounted, but some. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

New Mexico - Lights

EL VADO -- I took a photo of the lake in front of my house from inside my living room looking outward. There appears to be three bright lights that I thought were campfires. My husband told me that was impossible since no one is allowed to burn in the area. The photo was taken above the lake area into the Jicarrilla Apace mountain 25 miles south of Dulce. There is unlikely to be campfires since there are no trespassing signs posted everywhere. I also notice streaks flying across the photo. All of my lights were off in my house so there was no way it could have been a reflection from inside my house. The speed was set at 1600/auto. It is a Canon G9. I would love to send you the photo to take a look at it and give me your opinion. Thanks to Brian Vike, HBCC UFO Research

New York Triangular Shaped UFO

FAIRPORT -- The object appeared to be triangle shaped with six or more brightly colored blue and white lights on the underside on June 17, 2008 at 8:30 PM.

The object rapidly moved left then right, then away, back to the right and then disappeared. (The object disappeared in mid-air.) I was unable to determine the size based on sight. No reports of the object appeared in the local media. The object emitted no sound.

Comments: The witness has sketched a commonly reported airborne object. The one exception is the color of lights on the underside. Most witnesses report that the lights are one color or absent. Given that overcast skies were reported at the time of the sighting, the object was likely flying quite low. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

STATEN ISLAND -- I was talking with two friends on June 21, 2008, about 9:50 PM, on my friend's porch when he said, "What the heck is that?!" I turned and saw an orange balloon-shaped object with what looked like flames at the bottom of it that seemed to be floating upward not too far away above some trees. I first thought it was a hot air balloon, but as it started to move away, I immediately knew it wasn't. It moved away quite fast and my friend and I went after it while my other friend stayed. We ran after it, watching it, then we stopped about two blocks down. It continued moving extremely fast and as we watched it, after about 30 seconds, it went completely out off view. I captured a picture of it on phone, but only a small orange light is visible. Thanks to Brian Vike, HBCC UFO Research -- On June 28, 2008, While attending a graduation party in the backyard of my friend's home, I was informed by a person sitting next to me to look up at the strange object. I thought it was a UFO. The object first rose up out of a wooded area then it hovered over the area at an altitude of about 3,000 feet. It began to swing back and forth for about 30 seconds and then departed very fast in almost a blink of an eye upwards and then disappeared out of sight. The object was about 12 feet in diameter and was a dark metallic charcoal colored tire inner tube shape, it had a clear dome on top, on the center bottom it had a continuous red strobe light.

I felt very surprised while seeing the object but somewhat reassured that there was about 35 other people with me who were also viewing the object. The object when it shot away at incredible speed headed North toward the Long Island Sound. A person at the party attempted to photograph the object but the perfectly good working camera would not function. A new set of batteries was placed into the camera thinking that the new batteries already in the camera were defective, however the camera refused to function. Once the UFO departed the area, the camera worked fine. Thanks to MUFON CMS

North Carolina - UFO Photo

SILER CITY - On June 25, 2008, from 1:30-2:15 PM, for the second time we've experienced unusual power surges and electrical problems in our home. Our A/C unit shorts out and catches fire after repair from the first event, computer went to blue screen of death, but recovered but without audio capabilities. Phone problems as well, I received a call from my own number, that when I picked it up emitted a high pitched popping noise. It was suggested to me to go outside and take pictures when these things occur. So I did. The picture of the Triangle/Shadow was taken at 1:30 pm and the Disk appeared in a picture that I took at approximately 2:15 pm.

There were airplanes in normal travel patterns, very high up. None of these things were visible to my eye at the time the photo's were taken. We live on top of a small ridge and are surrounded by heavy woods, then farm land into the rolling hills. We are located 10 miles from the nearest small town. These photo's were taken at the top of the ridge where my pole barn and horse pasture is located. I have a pretty clear view of the sky with the tree line evident. Other people in our area have experienced strange electrical problems according to the repair man, who has been busy fixing the problems. These pictures were taken with a Fujifilm Finepix S700 Digital camera on Auto setting. Thanks to BrianVike, HBCC UFO Research

Pennsylvania - A Saturn Shaped UFO With Dome

MURRYSVILLE -- On June 19, 2008, about 3:30 AM, my 12-year-old daughter was up (sneaking) talking on the phone to a friend and looking out her bedroom window at the moon, when a red-glowing pulsing craft came into view instantly. It was over a wooded valley in front of our house. It was a "Saturn" shaped disk with dome on top. It had a row of small white lights close to the lower edge that raced one at a time to the right, then traveled back again, repeating. Thanks to BrianVike, HBCC UFO Research

BUCKS COUNTY - I was taking pictures of "weird" cloud formations and lights in the night sky on June 22, 2008..
2. The witness was downloading digital pictures into her laptop & saw the vortexes.
3. Vortexes.
4. The Vortexes were hovering in the sky.
5. The witness had feelings of elation and obsession with watching the night sky due to several encounters/observations of "weird" clouds & lights plus black helicopters in the area.
6. The objects just moved away.

Comments: The objects appear to move, but are likely reflections on the camera lens or the street lights.

South Dakota Photo

RUSHMORE -- We had taken our grandchildren to Mt. Rushmore for vacation and were going to the monument from Custer State Park, which is a very winding and narrow road. We made the curve and saw the huge monument and took pictures about 2-3 miles from the parking area. Being that far from the mountain while taking these pictures, we were unable to see the "objects" and of course didn't know if they made noise or not.

The first picture was taken and nothing shows up. The second picture, however, shows some unusual egg shaped objects and other darker, blacker objects. The last picture is of the second picture with an enlarged pic of the egg shaped object. Maybe ET just wanted a view of our "National Treasure". Thanks to MUFON CMS

Texas - A Huge Triangular UFO Hovering

SPRING BRANCH -- I was getting off work on Friday the 13th of June, as I was getting in my truck I saw a huge triangle object behind the building. Being curious I walked out a ways so that I could see behind the building. It was hovering pretty low and had one light on the bottom as if it was looking at something. I reached for my phone to take a picture and it flew off away from me pretty quick. Thanks to UFOINFO for this report.

Washington State - Disc

ELLENSBURG -- On June 24, 2008, at 9:45 PM, I saw a very bright silver disc craft 40-50 feet long flying over Ellensburg,east of the Cascade Mountains. The object was hovering over the I-90 freeway about 100 feet in the sky. It shot down a beam of light onto a section of the freeway. It made a slight humming sound that you could barely hear. It hovered for about 5-10 minutes then disappeared from sight.

Comments: This sighting sounds "too good to be true." This sighting is suspect because our group received several hoaxes from this general area last year. Many of these descriptions paralleled the description for this case. The witness provided invalid contact information. Given this scenario this case is most likely a hoax. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

Australia - Bright UFO Above Creek

REDBANK CREEK ESK 4312 - On June 10, 2008 11:15 PM, object was approx: 1 to 2 meters in diameter surrounded by bright white lights and hovered above the creek at approx 2 meters. It moved at a slow pace and because of the brightness of the light and the angle being observed it was not possible to see a clear shape. It was totally silent as it moved and I observed the object for fifteen minutes. I and others have had a few sightings in the Brisbane area. Thanks to Brian Vike, HBCC UFO Research

Canada - Stacks Of Sightings and Major Cattle Mute Incident

KAMLOOPS, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- Brian Vike writes from Canada, "Holy cow, it appears the flood gates have opened and sighting reports are pouring in much faster than I can keep up." I received a telephone call from a person here in British Columbia. I was told of a massive cattle mutilation event that took place some years back. The farmer who owned the farm was bought out by the Canadian government lot stock and barrel as they say. Also the owner of the farm, and all farm hands were given "strict" instructions that they were not in anyway shape or form to talk about the cattle mutilation incident. So I am waiting on more information so I can start looking into the matter.

If anyone has heard of a cattle mutilation over the years, please contact Brian Vike - Director of HBCC UFO Research ( or you can contact Barb Campbell at:

WHITBY -- There has been a series of intense storm activity here in Southern Ontario and June 23,2008, there were several reports around Toronto of funnel cloud formations along with hail. On that day I looked west towards Whitby and a sudden impulse to stop the car and take a couple of pictures of the cloud formations. My hunch was correct, that I would capture a UFO in one of the pictures. This picture was taken 6:58 PM. The photo clearly illustrates a round intense " white-blue " light- UFO at a distance. The weather here has been really weird i.e., blue patches of sky -nice cool days. The photo proves once again, we are NOT alone. Thanks to Paul Shishis

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - On June 29, 2008, after Midnight I was watching the stars and enjoying a cigar on my 6th floor balcony when a helicopter got my attention. It had a search light on near English Bay beach, so I got my Hi8 video camera out and shot a bit. I kept the camera with me and saw a slow moving satellite to the south. I rolled my camera on it. I had a clear shot of it, with a star centered still in the frame. It seemed to speed up and then disappeared with a sharp zig zag maneuver. Thanks to BrianVike, HBCC UFO Research

Chile: UFO Over the Ariztia Plant

A photograph taken by Alejandro Pardo at the Ariztia Plant on May 4, 2008, shows a strange flying object. Alejandro works for an engineering consulting firm which is engaged in a survey of the pipe network of the plant in question, which is located in the community of Monte. The image correspond to the photographic record of the facilities (taken with a Samsung U-CA 3 camera). Photo courtesy: Guillermo Aguilera (Translation (c) 2008, S. Corrales, IHU.

Mexico: UFO Photographed During San Marcos Fair

AGUASCALIENTES -- Ana Luisa Cid writes: Mr. Mario Castaneda Marquez took this photo during the San Marcos Fair in Aguascalientes state of, Mexico. According to his eyewitness account, it was taken during the preparation of the Los Voladores de Papantla ritual in front of the San Marcos Church. The date was April 30, 2008, the time 12:35 hrs., and a DSC P-43 Sony camera was used. (Translation (c) 2008, S. Corrales, IHU.

UK Police Chase UFO

CARDIFF -- Seems the U.K. is having an upswing in reported UFO sightings. With the major UFO event that just took place where a police helicopter was involved in a UFO incident. Of course I would certainly like to hear from anyone observing UFO sightings in the U.K. Also anyone knowing anything about this recent major sightings. You can write to me through the HBCC UFO Research website or directly to me at I have provided this link to a newspaper article *Police Chase UFO Over Cardiff *

MANCHESTER - A Royal Navy aircraft engineer allegedly spotted a disc shaped UFO hovering over the major highway M-5 between Manchester and London. Michael Madden, 25, said he watched in disbelief as the disc-shaped object floated above his head before it "zoomed off at incredible speed". He said the unidentified flying object flew for up to three minutes above junction 21 of the M5, near Weston-super-Mare, Somerset. Mr Madden was on his way back from Manchester with colleague Michael Casson, 22, at 9.50 PM on Sunday June 29 when he saw the suspected 'extra-terrestrial' craft. Thanks to the

COALVILLE, LEICESTERSHIRE -- I was driving from the A42/M42 towards Bardon Hill quarry 0n June 11, 2008, at 3 PM, and in the sky ahead was a silvery disk. It was stationary then moved rapidly to the left then further to the right then ascended up and out of sight. I would put this object at 10000 feet. There was a passenger plane at cruising altitude above and a helicopter about half a mile away. I'm sure they would have seen it. If anyone saw it please email me.

WHITCHURCH, BRISTOL -- I saw a black disc shaped stationary object very high in the sky on June 14, 2008 Approx: 11:40 PM,. I would say it was at least 30,000 ft. It was nearly overhead but in a south easterly direction from my viewpoint. I only managed to see it when the sun was obscured behind a cloud and the black disc was then visible. It stayed where it was as if hovering. The sun was reflecting off it and it was very sparkly. Once the sun emerged again it was just too bright to see even with sunglasses. I tried to locate it again but was unsuccessful. I would be interested if anyone else in the area saw it too. Thanks to BrianVike, HBCC UFO Research

WEMBLEY -- This metal globe shaped something was flying from west towards east June 22, 2008 6:20 PM, above just under the clouds. There were the usual commercial planes in the sky as well (flying from south towards north). As its colour was dark grey (metal) and the sun was shining on it, I could see the object even in a really far distance while it was before the white clouds or blue sky (through my sunglasses, without them the sky was too bright). My girlfriend was there with me and she said" it was definitely not an airplane but UFOs are not existing". The speed was enough fast to disappear within 35-40 sec. behind the clouds at the edge of the horizon. You can't see any airplanes that far without binoculars. The exact flying direction was above Preston road. Thanks to BrianVike, HBCC UFO Research

BRADFORD, WEST YORKSHIRE -- I was sat at my computer which is sort of next to the window on June 25, 2006, at 7:18 PM,. I just happened to be looking out and I noticed a really large circular object in the sky. I cannot fully describe this object, other than it was round shaped and looked to be black or a really dark grey in colour and it was quite far in the distance. It didn't have any specific features which I could point out. It wasn't moving, it just looked as if it was sitting in the sky and it was present for approximately 15 to 20 seconds. Before I even got my phone to record the object, it had disappeared. I am 100% certain that this was not a bird, plane, helicopter, balloon or even a spec of dirt on the window.

HAMPSHIRE -- Remarkable new evidence of UFOs in the skies over Hampshire can be revealed today by the UK Daily Echo News. Readers captured these bizarre images of what appear to be flying saucers zooming through our skies.

The UFOs were snapped over Beaulieu and Woolston by pure accident and only noticed days later by the photographers. Hampshire has been in the grip of an X Files-style UFO mystery after black triangles were seen flying over Millbrook and Shirley in recent months. Last week the Echo thought it had explained the phenomenon - a mini-hot air balloon made out of four black bin bags. But the latest sightings are clearly something completely different - and remain a mystery. Thanks to

Scotland - A Huge Circular UFO Stationary

TRANENT EAST LOTHIAN -- My girlfriend (now wife of 27 years) and I were walking from my house in Tranent to the pub (stone cold sober at this time) to celebrate the forthcoming new year festivities on December 31, 1979, at about 8:00 PM, when we saw a huge circular object stationary above Cockenzie power station, East Lothian. It was approx 100m in diameter and bright orange, hovering approx 50m above the two chimneys. There was a small cone shaped tail rather like the exhaust from a jet engine but there was no noise. I turned to my wife and asked her if she could see this as I thought that I was seeing things. She confirmed yes, she could.

Venezuela UFO Photos writes:

CARACAS - On Saturday, June 15 in the afternoon I was able to photograph fortuitously two objects with a strange appearance in the vicinity of Cerro El Avila around San Jose - Cotiza, while attempting to record the wake of an aircraft after it crossed the skies over Caracas. The vehicle moved in a southeast - northeast direction and viceversa, generating a sort of "gaseous tissue" in the heights, white in color and of broad dimensions, which took approximately 30 minutes to vanish The objects were photographed with a Panasonic Lumix digital camera, 6.0 mpix, and maintained a considerable distance with regard to the flight trajectory followed by the aircraft.
