Russian Cosmonauts Back Astronaut Edgar Mitchell's claims UFOs are real

Cosmonaut Alexandr Baladin stated that "flying saucers" have come into close proximity to the MIR space station as well as the Baikonur Cosmodrom. He added there is sufficient evidence to warrant a scientific study of the phenomenon, and that it is time that world governments officially acknowledge the UFO phenomenon's existence. "General Vladimir Ivanov, former commander of Russia's Military Space Forces, recalls that three objects flew at a considerable altitude over Baikonur Cosmodrome and were picked up on radar. There is no way they could have been airplanes." insisted the cosmonaut. Baladin disclosed December 23, 1998, at Brazil's First International Ufology Forum, that he and fellow cosmonaut Musa Manarov had seen UFOs.

During docking operations between his space capsule and the MIR, Baladin saw a glowing object a short distance away. Manarov managed to capture the strange phenomenon on videotape, that was shown during the UFO congress in Brazil. Baladin claimed that the recording and other evidence presented during the Congress, "must be studied by an international scientific commission." Baladin insisted that the Russian military has a great contribution to make to UFO research, giving as an example the multiple-witness case at the Kaputsin Yar missile base, whose personnel sighted a semi-circular object flying at low altitude lighting up the bases facilities with a powerful searchlight in June 1989. "Many of my old comrades, who are now working at top-secret military facilities, acknowledge having seen UFOs. Thanks to Rubén Sobrino.

Possible Ancient Ruins on the Moon

At the National Press Club briefing in Washington on October 30, 2007, Dr. Ken Johnston and Richard Hoagland claimed there are ancient ruins on the Moon. In 1969, Dr. Johnston became the Manager of the Data and Photo Control department which put him in control of all Apollo mission photography.

Dr. Ken Johnston claims U.S. astronauts found ancient ruins of artificial origin and a previously unknown technology to control gravitation when then landed on the Moon. Astronauts took pictures of the objects that they found, but NASA ordered Johnston to destroy the images and has kept them for 40 years. Johnston's startling Apollo allegations have recently appeared in a new book, "Dark Mission: the Secret History of NASA," co-authored by former NASA consultant, Richard C. Hoagland and Mike Bara, an aerospace engineering consultant. Michael Bara states, "There are really large, nearly-invisible glass objects hiding in the background of some classic NASA shots from the Apollo missions. Here are Apollo 14 photos taken when Alan Shepard and Edgar Mitchell were on the Moon. The mass you see in images is not caused by a lens flare. The sun is coming in at a right angle to the camera axis -- thus eliminating the potential for such a mundane explanation. Lens flares require the light source to be either in-frame or directly outside of it in order to illuminate the camera lens. In this case, it is impossible to illuminate the lens, due to the right- angle offset position of the sun.

The left image is an enhanced version of the previous shot, only this time it's taken from NASA's own version of the 40-year-old photograph, currently posted on official NASA websites. As you can see, the detail has been sharply diminished. The formerly blue 'comet-like' feature now seems red, due to a long-term degradation in the emulsion of the photograph. The stunningly regular geometry is also muted, leaving only the horizontal 'crossbar' as a sharp geometric figure. The image on the bottom right is where all the magic is.

This image was recorded when Alan Shepard took a Hasselblad image looking north. This image also can be found -- currently -- on official NASA web sites. Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the astronaut, is off camera to the left. However, the towering glass-like ruins are still arching overhead, far to the north of the landed spacecraft. The 'crossbar', and another horizontal feature below it, are both perfectly visible -- again -- in the exact same places.

These unimaginably specific geometric details are preserved between the two photographs. Two independent records -- both part of the official NASA archive -- both show the same extraordinary objects, standing miles above the Moon. As such, these images are a stunning official confirmation of our entire Lunar dome hypothesis. You can find these images yourself on the official NASA websites.

The US, Russia, China, Japan and India have publicly announced their plans to establish bases probably to obtain non-radioactive isotope of helium-3, that is new powerful fuel for nuclear synthesis. Only six tons of this fuel would provide enough energy to power a large European country for one year.

Edgar Mitchell Interviewed on FOX TV

On July 25, 2008, Edgar Mitchell was interviewed and indicated crash at Roswell, NM happened.

UFOs a Rainbow of Colors

It seems every color of the rainbow has been ascribed to UFOs. When atoms become agitated by collision among themselves or electrical excitement or absorption of electromagnetic radiation, one or more electrons are elevated out of their normal energy state or removed from the atom completely. But, radiation in the ultraviolet, visible, and infrared regions of the spectrum are emitted by transitions involving the more loosely bound, outer electrons.

The blue haze often reported is unlikely the object itself, but the luminosity has been caused by the UFO passing through the atmosphere. If a large number of the tabulated spectral lines are emitted by a UFO, their mixture tends to produce white light. Different amounts of energy are required to stimulate the several gases of the atmosphere to emit light. The neutral atom of xenon is seen as a pure, intense blue. It is suspected that xenon emits three separate, but closely spaced, spectral lines in the center of the blue band of the spectrum and is responsible for the blue, brilliant blue and luminous blue that are seen in many photos. With the world suffering from a shortage of energy it would seem prudent to study UFO propulsion systems. Very high electromagnetic frequencies are known to be associated with UFOs and many appear to be "metallic machines exhibiting flight technology exceeding Earth-based knowledge." UFOs are real objects that use electromagnetic energy acting upon a propellant which is then utilized by the mechanical features of the craft giving it a lifting force.

Two newly discovered pages of the US Government's "Project Magnet" read as follows: This project is for the purpose of studying magnetic phenomena, particularly those phenomena resulting from unusual boundary conditions in the basic electromagnetic field. There is reason to believe their discovery will open up a new and useful technology. The initial organization shall be as small as practical and composed of personnel who are used to working together. The initial program shall include:

1. Theoretical study of electromagnetic radiation assuming boundary conditions different from those upon which the conventional theory was developed.

2. Laboratory study of mechanical forces associated with electron drift and electric currents in metallic masses.

3. Theoretical and laboratory study of magnetic domain resonance conditions in magnetic materials.

4. Investigation of the propagation of magnetic wave motion in magnetic materials.

5. Investigate the possibility of producing, an effect, a "sink" in a magnetic field.

6. Investigate the possibility of producing, in effect, single isolated magnetic poles.

7. Investigate the effects of a magnetic field on a rotating curviplaner metallic object. Full Document at

There is video taken near Area 51 indicating that craft using these propulsion systems are now flying.

UFO Propulsion Systems

Dr. Bruce Maccabee, MUFON's Maryland Director writes, "The phenomenon associated with the presence of a UFOs can be accounted for within the following scientific parameters: The craft emit Electromagnetic radiation measured isotropically that is in all directions of approximately one megawatt, that is a million watts." Bruce states, "This number must be considered a complete guess. The only real data we have (here I ignore any possible data the "control group"-- should there be one -- might have; I refer only to "open literature data") is that, at least in some cases, UFOs radiate visible light in the hundreds of KW to MW range. However, the visible spectrum is only part of it. A photo taken by Ed Walters in the presence of witnesses in Pensacola, Florida on March 12, 1991, using infrared film indicates that there could be many (ten? hundred?) more times in the infrared (see "UFOs Are Real, Here's The Proof," Avon, pg. 177. Foreword by George Filer)

There are numerous other wavelengths as well. Hence "one megawatt" MIGHT be an underestimate in some cases. On top of the craft is an exceptionally high magnetic field which is about a million times more powerful than we know how to produce on the Earth. The very few actual measurements or "chance observations" we have do suggest huge magnetic fields, occasionally! However, one may assume that such strong fields are not always present because magnetic effects are not always detected. Also, whether a field will be detected or depends upon whether this is a static field (constant polarity and constant amplitude) or an alternating field (polarity switching at some rate, as in an electromagnetic wave). A static field or slowly varying field could produce some of the reported effects on mechanical systems (noisy road sign, wobbling compass). There is also a slow ripple effect of about ten per second. That ripple is what causes the spinning of compasses? Maybe. Compasses could also spin if a "non-rippling" magnetic field source were simply to move past a compass. Incidentally, just how many such observations are there? (I already know about Fred Johnson, prospector, June 24, 1947)

Regarding the high power of the UFOs and their large magnetic field, we have found that some fairly simple instruments may be useful for tracking them. UFOs are known to cause disturbances to compass readings. Rather than watching the compass continuously it is possible to get an alarm from any compass that is setting still and starts deviating. A simple optical - electrical circuit of the "beam breaking" type can be used to measure the deviation of a compass needle from its rest position. Scanning of the radio frequency spectrum can also sometimes pick up electrical disturbances caused by UFOs. This can be done with rudimentary equipment such as radio receivers. Amateur radio enthusiasts listen to a range of about 200 kHz through about 30 MHz and have reported picking up interference when UFOs are reported nearby.

There are cases of radio disturbance and TV disturbance...but this does not always happen (just as car-stopping does not always happen). Tuning to unused channels sometimes can pick up the UFO signal. The ham radio operators would also have these, but could scan additional bands of higher frequency. They could, if sufficient interest were generated, build or modify equipment to scan frequencies in the microwave region. Radar receivers often used by high speed drivers can also be used to measure the microwave range energy that is sent out by many UFOs. Note: radar stations use microwave radiation of various frequencies. they also have very sensitive receivers and large antennas. Numerous radar detections have been recorded. Radar operators at Philadelphia International Airport recently reported craft over flying at high altitude at speeds of 16,000 mph.

However, only rarely (I know of one case) is there a real likelihood that radiation from the UFO (as opposed to radar radiation bounced off the UFO) has been recorded. Hence I would conclude that the likelihood of detecting a UFO by listening for microwave radiation is low at best. There are numerous types and models of UFOs and each could produce various types of ionization, and electromagnetic effects.

Ancient Sacred Writings Tell of Visitors from Space

According to the sacred writings of Egypt a superior being came to the land of the Nile in the distant past. His name was Thoth or Hermes and he civilized the dwellers of ancient Egypt by giving them symbols to record ideas and sounds. He showed them the harp to play upon, charts of the stars; numbers to count the stars, how to construct temples and pyramids, the names of herbs and remedies to care for the sick. The benefactor then bid them goodbye and ascended into the sky.

Ancient Orpheus Sculpture With Strange Device

A culture bearer also arrived in Greece in ancient times and who was a marvelous musician and possessed wonderful wisdom and could answer any question. The Greeks knew him as Orpheus and he told of life in the stars.

In Mexico a Feathered Serpent called Quetzalcoatl descended from a hole in the sky. Another version describes a winged ship in which he sailed. Quetzalcoatl instructed the Central American Indians in the sciences of agriculture, astronomy, and architecture and gave them a code of ethics. This teacher left an indelible stamp on all of Central America and he is still revered. This is another torch bearer of wisdom who came from the sky, his murals can be seen today in the Palace National in Mexico City.

According to ancient clay tablets in Sumer a weird creature landed on the shores of the Persian Gulf and brought similar wisdom to inhabitants 6000 years ago in the earliest known civilization. The ancient visitor is called Oannes who looked like a large fish with a human face. The description may actually refer to a space suit. The Sumerians left records of a vastly sophisticated culture with knowledge of medical technology, including genetic manipulations performed on primates. The apparent cosmic visitor spoke to the primitive dwellers of Mesopotamia and taught them how to build cities, compile laws, count, write down thoughts and stories, to plant wheat and other foods, and observe the stars. He provided a calendar based on the number twelve. Oannes and space travelers known as the Anunaki came to Earth before the Biblical flood and brought civilization to the hunters.

In South America we have similar ancient stories of a tall white man who came from the land of dawn. He revealed to the Indians the secrets of civilization and inspired them with high ethical ideas. His name was Viracocha who is known as a sky god and taught like Oannes. There are legends of missionaries who came from the stars whose ships could travel into space.

In many places around the world we have ancient texts and structures pointing toward the heavens indicating interest in space travelers who brought wisdom and ethics. I suggest the stories are too similar to be myths, that they reveal the truth about ancient astronauts.

Arizona Cylinder Photo

El Mirage -- Scott Colborn's writes, "This is a picture with an anomalous image in it and I have received permission to send it to you for your review and comments. The photographer states, "I took the picture on 4th of July weekend ( I think it was the 5th) looking to the West. I did not "doctor" it in any way. It's made me very curious. I took the picture from in front of our house about 4:00 pm here in El Mirage AZ. I thought it was an interesting cloud formation. There is something at the bottom just to the left of center. I did not notice it at the time that I took the picture. The second picture is an enlargement of it. Do you have any idea what it might be?????

I took the picture with my 1.3 mega pixel phone camera. There was no sound when I took it, and I didn't notice the object until several weeks later when I downloaded the picture to my computer. That was the only photo I took of that cloudobject.

Several years before I retired I taught 9th and 10th grade Science. Before that I flew KC 97s in the Air Force. During my last few working years I was a Counselor at Southeast Community College. Feel free to use the picture in any way you see fit and keep me posted on anything you might find out about it. Thanks to Scott Colborn, Host of the "Exploring Unexplained Phenomena" radio program since 1984, Saturdays 10 - 11:30 am Central Time, on KZUM 89.3 FM, Lincoln, NE, and worldwide via .

Editor's Note: It is difficult to indentify of this object. It could be a cylinder shaped UFO or an aircraft with wings and tail painted the same color as the background clouds.

California Craft Without Wings

PETALUMA --On the morning of July 27, 2008 a 25 year-old California woman observed a long flat stationary object while she was driving that morning. The UFO was white and devoid of any markings and remained in view for five minutes. Weather conditions were sunny. Petaluma continues to be an area of high UFO activity. Petaluma lies between Santa Rosa and San Francisco. It is near the lush Napa Valley. UFORC investigators are active in that area. Steven Moreno has done several investigations of reported crop circles in the Vacaville area. Many sightings can be explained by a natural phenomenon prevalent in that region called earthlights. This controversial theory ascribes to the fact that the entire San Francisco region is known for its high level of tectonic activity. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Thanks to Christopher Montgomery Executive Director

SACRAMENTO -- On July 28, 2008, around 11AM, my wife and were I turning right on to Reed Ave towards West Sacramento and looked up at what we thought was an airplane departing from SAC International airport. The odd thing was that it had no tail fin or wings of any kind. I turned to my wife and asked her to check it out and watched it fly east. It started out slow moving then zipped faster and then vanished before my eyes. The one thing that was so strange about it is that it was going slow and then zipped as it sped up and then poof it was gone. Both my wife and myself agree that this was not an aircraft. It was above the tops of the buildings and it looked to be in my best guess around 150-300 feet in size. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Illinois a Dark Hovering Triangle

GRANITE CITY -- On May 21, 2008, at 7:30 PM, I was walking my son in the stroller home when we reached a large church I saw a darkish triangular craft that was hovering very nearby. I stood on the side walk and for a long moment, took in its details as it slowly edged away. I watched it clearing away, just above the church. It had appeared to be lingering, in a diagonal fashion, gaining higher ground for 15 minutes, as it edged into sky. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Indiana UFO Photo

On July 28, 2008, four of us saw two bright lights in the north sky close to my house. They blinked off, and then three appeared, then they blinked off, and then five appeared. Three were on top, and two under, but forming a circle. I tried to take a picture of the orange one, but just got a streak going up and down. When I zoomed in on that on the back of the camera, after the incident was over......there was about 15 to 20 lights higher up not visible to the naked eye. I caught these with the camera. They were in a ‘V' heading east. I'm a photographer, and take a lot of nature lightening shots, rainbows, planes etc. These were totally different. I used a 300 mm lens at 5.6 to get this shot.

New Jersey Giant Flying Bird?

ROSELLE PARK – The witness reports seeing a giant bird soaring at 12:30 PM on August 5, 2008, that is as large as a commercial jet aircraft. It was not an eagle nor a plane This is the fourth time several witnesses they have seen this strange flying object. It appeared to have wings and a flat tail. ‘wings round at tip. Can fly like Harrier jet, soar, glide, and go straight up. Although wings did not move it flew similar to a bird. It was first seen a year ago coming out of a colored cloud. It was the size of a commercial aircraft and the wings were fixed. Other planes in the area. Did not hear any noise. Craft was jet black with large wings and no tail and very short fuselage in front of wings. He and a companion were afraid the craft was heading for them and went inside.. No engines or markings observed. Has anyone seen a craft like this?

New York Glowing Orange Disk Objects

PORT JEFFERSON -- This event happened on the East End of Long Island, New York, in the Village of Port Jefferson on July 4, 2008. I was with two other friends and we were just talking, while watching cars drive by at a popular hangout. Our first sighting was at 10:15 PM when we saw two bright orange balls of light flying in close formation at around four thousand feet heading north. A few people at this point noticed and we thought they might be helicopters, but it is rather strange for a helicopter to glow bright orange. The craft hovered for a short period then flew a little farther and in the blink of an eye disappeared straight up into the sky. A gentleman stood by saying "those were definitely not helicopters." At 10:35 PM, three bright orange balls of light were flying in close formation from the south and they hovered at about the same height as the first. These crafts moved up and down in a very speedy fashion. The light would fade as they moved up and would glow brighter as they came down. These were very fast moving objects.

Next, a plane was flying in from the west toward the crafts and at this point at least 50-60 people were pointing up at the sky wondering what in the world the objects were. Moments later at the same time all three craft dimmed their lights completely. But this time, the objects didn't disappear as they flew by, they were light gray in color round disks (sphere like), not small from what I could tell maybe around half the size of a football field. At this point they were moving at a relatively fast cruising speed. One craft flew up ahead while the other two trailed close together but all three in formation. They flew over the water and heading toward CT. Without a doubt, this was the most surreal experience I and my friends have had. I have an accounting background (MBA) and work in the lab plastics business. My other friend/witness is a Speech Therapist in a School District and the other works for Allstate Insurance. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

FINGER LAKES REGION -- I had an experience occur in my bedroom two weeks ago when I awakened to find three little balls of light hovering over me, a few minutes past 2 AM. I sat up in bed and the lights only hovered.. They were about the size of an American quarter-dollar when held close to the face, but these lights were only 2-3 feet above my bed. I saw them for only a few minutes and then they were gone! It was as if someone had turned off a light switch! They just vanished! Two nights after that sighting There was a sighting in Oswego, NY on the 7th of July. That town is only about 1 hour to the ENE of where I live. Most of my sightings and missing times usually occur with the appearance of white spheres. Those little balls of light were no brighter than little night-lights. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Ohio Large Sphere

EASTLAKE -- Five people viewed a sphere at an Eastlake residence on the Lake Erie shore. The object went up and down gradually and was a large sphere 1" - 1 1/4" in diameter. At one point it went higher than the moon and dissipated. The object did not travel horizontally. On this night the moon was waxing and Lake Erie was calm. No boats were seen. The caller, a teacher, was 15 feet above her husband who was fishing on the shore. Caller thought it was a cargo ship and didn't pay attention to it for a few minutes. Object was white, with pinkish green colors on the bottom. Husband saw something entirely different. He saw a tunnel effect, like smoke or and columns and didn't see lights, but a cloud like a pole at ground level that went straight up to the moon. No one knew what created the swirling effect seen by husband. Caller thought object was 50 miles out . There was a screech sound about 10 minutes after the sighting. It was not their baby who was asleep. The sphere was observed for 8-10 minutes.

FLIGHT TO CINCINNATI -- I've always believed, but I'd never definitively seen a UFO until Saturday, August 2, 2008. I was on a passenger jet on a flight from Detroit to Cincinnati in the early evening and somewhere over Ohio I looked out the window into the western sky. It was a beautiful day with some clouds. We'd been at our cruising altitude about ten minutes when I saw what I initially thought was a plane far away, even though it just looked like a white or silvery oval. It was higher than we were and was climbing at about a 45 degree angle which I thought was kind of strange. I watched it for five when it disappeared! At first I just thought I lost sight of it, which can happen with far away objects in the sky, but it was nowhere. So then I started REALLY paying attention to the sky out the window. After a few minutes I saw another (or the same) object, but in a different part of the sky. It didn't seem to be climbing and seemed more or less stationary. I saw it flash, which at the time I assumed was metal reflecting in sunlight. And then it also disappeared. This happened four more times! There were a total of six times on that flight that I saw an object appear out of nowhere, flash, and disappear. I initially thought the flashing was reflecting sunlight, but I now think it must've been related to whatever was making the object(s) disappear. I don't know what it is that I saw, but if it wasn't an alien craft, then our military has totally been lying and withholding about the level of their technology. Unbelievable. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Pennsylvania Sightings and Abduction

BUCKS COUNTY --This is my second sighting in less than two months of the same type craft or whatever it was. This sighting happened at about 4:05 AM, on Sunday, July 27, 2008. Bucks County was having a severe heat lightning storm, from about 2 to 5:00 AM. My dog woke me up about 4:05 AM whining, when I looked out my window and saw the same type craft I saw on June 3rd. It was off in the distance, and I only saw it because a lightning strike lit up the sky. This time I woke up my wife and we both went outside. By this time it was almost overhead and below the cloud cover. It was still dark and the object was just a shade darker then the sky (except when lightning struck) and the craft lit up like a Christmas tree, but only for a millisecond or like a camera flash. In that short time, I could see that this thing was not solid (or one object). The light from the lightning which was in the clouds above the craft, shown through gaps or spaces that were not part of the craft, revealing six separate triangular bodies joined together forming one moving object. The lightning lit up the object and I saw the height or thickness. The sides were gray in color with protrusions and indentations along its sides. The windows were definitely windows and not light panels, as I was not sure of in my first sighting. The lightning illuminated the interior and came out the windows. There may have been spirals or aerials protruding above but I am not sure.

From my observation and from what I saw that night I have a few theories. #1: These various shaped objects that many people have seen, are similar triangular crafts docked together forming these shapes. (See my illustrations) Also, they probably dock together and travel as one unit to save fuel, similar to car pooling.

#2: The craft that I saw that was lit up by lightning flashes was not what I was expecting to see. Previously, I saw a dark gray object and mainly only the bottom. This was a very clunky, box or hexagon protrusions, deep recesses of various shapes with antenna like things sticking out. What I saw when the lightning lit it up, would in my opinion, have a hard time doing 60 mph. on a road, let alone fly. My theory is, it must be incased in some kind of vacuum or force field that isolates it from the atmosphere and gravity. This would explain the way the object I first saw, made a very fluid turn like it was encased in fluid. If these crafts are extraterrestrial and our government knows this, why don't they admit it? The dimmer one seemed to be circling the brighter one, as though it was clearing the way or protecting it. Once they were above us, and they weren't that high, we could see a darker outline of a saucer shape of the brighter shinning one, the dimmer one had none, at least, that we could see. They glided off towards Boronia before fading out. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

OXFORD VALLEY MALL – I had just fed my dogs and looked up to see an orange light, then felt my body lift off the ground and my mouth hung open as I saw a huge craft and felt I was being abducted. Almost immediately I remember closing my mouth and realized the craft had left. Strangely my dogs were begging for food and ravished. I fed them again and called my partner who was frantic and explained I had been missing for five days. The missing time seemed like fifteen seconds, but apparently I had been gone for several days. I feel I was abducted by a spirit reality and learned we are descended from the sons of God.

Virginia Ball in Sky

Alexandria -- Brandon McCain writes, "Since the Chinese nuclear weapons cooked off in the Sichuan China 8.0 earthquake (at least two confirmed by government), I am getting more, and more unidentified objects in Virginia; most are very clear to see now. There are so many photos from the past two weeks that contain multiple cylinders, and metallic "balls" like the photo here taken on July 22, 2008. I keep my camera on multi shot now, and I'm getting much better results. I will keep shooting! Thanks to Brandon McCain Investigator

Washington Sky Fishing Photos

Red boxed objects are enlarged versions of the unknown object from the original photo inserted into the photo to show detail.

BOTHELL Ali Nicolls writes, "When I first started taking pictures of these unknown objects, I was surprised and dismayed at how dismissively a portion of the UFO community greeted my pictures with the skepticism and standard response "it's probably a bird or a bug" as an elimination process." A good investigator will ask you for more information. What resulted was a collection of information about birds and bugs to compare to my photos to make deductive analysis. Tips:

· Keep your bird photos and mark them so you can go back to them or include them with your photos to investigators for comparison.

· Review all potential UFO photos to eliminate other possibilities. Compare them to photos you have already taken of birds and bugs and look for telltale signs of wings or other bird and bug shapes. Look for blurriness around the area where the wings would be.

· Use the pictures in the link below as a guide to help eliminate non UFO's.

Birds and bugs can and are confused with UFO's. From far away birds can look like classical disc shaped objects. The link below shows a sequence of bird photos flying to show the different but telltale signs that you have a bird as your object rather than a UFO.

Because I use an DSLR camera and the rapid fire shooting method, I am able to show a bird in flight across the sky and I am able to eliminate them as UFO objects. My UFO pictures do not traverse slowly across the sky, they show up in one photo only. A regular digital camera has a lag time in the photo sequence so it is harder to compare.

Australia Orange Light

FERNTREE GULLY, VICTORIA -- On July 23, 2008, when my hubby and I were sitting outside on our deck, we spotted two orange lights gliding towards us, from Upper FTG way around 11 PM. One orange light was very bright, the other was dimmer and seemed to be circling the brighter one, as though it was clearing the way or protecting it. Once they were above us, and they were not that high, we could see a darker outline of a saucer shape of the brighter shinning one, the dimmer one had none, at least, that we could see. They glided off towards Boronia/Wantirna area's before fading out. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Canada Sightings

BOBCAYGEON -- This photo is strange one, there may even be antenna sticking out of it from Bobcaygeon taken on July 13 2008. I'm off to camp next Monday-looking forward just plain CHILLING-in the lake. Possible two UFOs with one on each side of photo. Thanks to Paul Shishis

WOODSTOCK, NEW BRUNSWICK -- My son and I were driving home from his friends house commenting on the shape of the moon when he noticed a bright white spherical shaped object passing through the sky on July 14, 2008, at 9:45 PM. I suggested it was probably a plane to which he replied well there's three more planes right behind it. To this I pulled the car over so we could get out for a closer look. The objects traveled soundlessly through the night sky in a north/east direction. As we stood watching the first object seemed to just disappear as two more entered our line of vision moving diagonally until one by one they disappeared. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

SCARBOROUGH, ONTARIO -- I was in central Scarborough facing east on July 18, 2008, with grey rain clouds. I look up in the sky facing east to Markham Rd before 6:00 PM. I could see a dark object like a boomerang about a half mile away. It was moving very slowly about balloon in speed and gliding along at a maintained altitude (10,000 ft +). It was moving across the sky from the south to north. It appeared to hook eastward slow directly in front of my position. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Russian Photo

KALININGRAD -- On the 27th of July tens of citizens of the Russian city of Kaliningrad witnessed an UFO for nearly an hour. The unknown silver object hung over the local Blue Lakes. According to the witnesses, the discus-shaped UFO attracted attention of the locals who had a rest at the lakes and they started waving their hands as a sign of greeting to the object. Some people started making shots of the object and shooting video with their mobile phones.

Despite the fact that tens of people witnessed the phenomenon, neither Baltic Navy nor the Ministry of Emergency Situations have officially commented the incident saying that they did not register any unknown flying objects that day. Thanks to,

Spain – Metallic Ball

MADRID – On July 27, 2008, `I was in the swimming pool with my daughter about three miles west of Madrid airport and may be 100 feet above the airport. I am a pilot, so I am often looking up at planes observing the sky when I saw a MD twin tail engine aircraft coming slightly south of the airport and flying east-west at between 18000 and 24000 feet? About five miles north of it and not much below there was another object moving as well. Initially it looked it was moving at about same speed, parallel to the aircraft, but after few seconds it was obvious that not, it was shining like the aircraft but was much smaller, without any trail and moving slower, actually like decelerating, and moving away (north) It kept moving slower and coming northwest coming to us.

Either the object was very small or very high, there was not a distinguishable shape, it looked like a ball, metallic in aspect and shining with the sun up in the south west. Initially I though it could be a balloon but the wind was coming from the north so I started thinking there was something weird. When it was about the vertical of the control tower it stopped and remained totally stopped for five minutes. I was just looking at when my daughter called me and when I turned head back it was gone.

Scotland UK Bright Glowing Light

AUCHTEARDER, PERTHSHIRE -- On July 27, 2008 at 10:30 PM, we saw at about 3000 feet a bright glowing light, hovering, then moving steadily north at a constant speed. It then increased speed to a phenomenal rate and disappeared in 2/3 seconds. No noise was heard. It was NOT a jet engine or even a fighter jet/helicopter and was witnessed by three people. Looking through binoculars it was still unclear what the object was. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research


BURFORD -- On July 18, 2008, at 11:15 PM, I was driving along late on the A40 and noticed bright lights on the ground in the field, but shaped like a vast star. I thought at first there was a music festival somewhere around but there was no noise, or people, and then notice directly ahead of me a large roundish oval barrage balloon - bright - move across the line of trees and then disappear. I thought - goodness what was that - and then realized I must have seen a UFO.

LAWRENCE WESTON, BRISTOL—I sat in the garden on Saturday night with nine friends on July 26, 2008, at 11.10 PM, and not all had been drinking. We spotted a red light that we thought was the police helicopter and then noticed that there was two which was really strange. Then we spotted more lights and they just kept coming across the sky from the Portway area and then they headed off across towards Stoke Bishop way. There were no engine noises and all of a sudden they stopped coming and disappeared over toward Stoke Bishop whether there was a cloud that way and they went into it!

HECKMONDWIKE, WEST YORKSHIRE --We saw this bright white object on July 30, 2008, at 10:52 PM, moving extremely fast in a straight line, then zig zagged and disappeared. It took about 15 to 20 seconds. The object was not a plane and not a shooting star. It was high up. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

ST. LEONARDS ON SEA, EAST SUSSEX -- On July 27, 2008, at 9:30 PM, I noticed a black object in the sky, slowly moving and very high in the sky. When I looked through binoculars I had a shock, it was black and similar shape to a Chinook helicopter but no propellers, but had five prongs that were thick and long hanging from it. One from underneath, with three from above and one that looked like it was sticking out from the front. We watched it move slowly above us until it went out of sight. As we were discussing what we had seen, another one appeared, exactly the same shape color and position in the sky traveling in the same direction. No noise, no vapor trail, no lights.
