Extra-Terrestrial Intervention

Montana Sphere

September 17, 2008

This week's files cover: Robbie Williams Tells How a UFO Visited Him, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Sighting, Mars – Odd Craters, 265 Extra-Solar Planets and One in the Habitable Zone, Does Alien Intervention Create Increased Human Brain Power? and Animal Alive After Space Travel.

Unidentified Aerial Phenomena were spotted over: Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Texas, Virginia, and Washington. UFOs were also seen in Canada, France, Scotland and England.

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.

Special Reports

Robbie Williams Tells How a UFO Visited Him

The Sun News in the UK reports, Robbie, 34, said a weird black light flew into his recording studio in Los Angeles and out again as he and pals watched stunned. He said: "I had just finished writing a song called Arizona, which is about alien abduction, when there was this glow. It was magic." Now Robbie plans to go out on a jet ski to look for UFOs reported to have landed in the sea.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Sighting

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (28 August 1749 – 22 March 1832) was a German writer who was known as "Germany's greatest man of letters, and the most brilliant man to walk the earth."] Goethe's works span the fields of literature, humanism, poetry, theology and science. Goethe lauded as one of the greatest men of world literature, wrote the two-part drama Faust.

He is considered by many to be the most important writer in the German language and one of the most important thinkers in Western culture as well. In the sixth book of his Autobiography he wrote,

"I was sixteen years old on my way to Leipzig University, and was walking behind my horse in September 1768, when, all at once, in a ravine on the right side of the way, I saw sort of an amphitheater, wonderfully illuminated. In a funnel shaped space there were innumerable lights gleaming, ranged step fashion over one another, and they shone so brilliantly that the eye was dazzled. But what more confused the sight was that they did not keep still, but jumped about here and there, as well downwards from above as vice versa in every direction", snip The description of the UFO is not too different from the following reports.

265 Extra-Solar Planets and One in the Habitable Zone

The first extra-solar planet was discovered in 1995, and astronomers have now cataloged 265 with at least one in the habitable zone where life could exist assuming it has an atmosphere. The record of the past twelve years shows that the more astronomers learn about the characteristics of planets, moons, and their stars, the more evidence they uncover for the exceptional rarity of the solar system's conditions that permit the existence of life. The case for the supernatural design of the human-friendly Milky Way Galaxy and solar system continues to build.

A team of American astronomers recently announced the discovery of the first known planet outside our solar system to spend its entire orbit within the habitable zone that is orbiting within that distance from its star where surface liquid water would be possible. Assuming the atmosphere of the planet is fine-tuned so as to trap the just right amount of heat from the planet's star. There are believed to be billions of planets and the probability now exists that one out of 265 may support life.

Does Alien Intervention Create Increased Human Brain Power?

Geneticist Bruce Lahn first made a name for himself when he paired with David Page, director of MIT's Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research, to craft a novel theory on the origins of the Y chromosome. But Lahn is perhaps best known for his paper on the advances of the human brain, and the implications for intelligence and race that have become attached to it.

Lahn's paper on the recent evolution of the human brain asserts that new versions of two genes are currently spreading through the human population and are linked to brain size and intelligence and has wondered if the mutations—one of which took place roughly 40,000 years ago, the other, 5,800 years ago—correlate with the development of art, written language, and the founding of cities. And he stepped on more than a few feet when he noted that, geographically speaking, the changes had occurred pretty much everywhere but sub-Saharan Africa. Lahn's defenders say he was merely practicing good science.

Lahn's team was looking at genes that might have been important in the emergence of the human phenotype, especially the enlargement of the human brain and all the great things that came along with that. They determined that genes important for brain development seem to have evolved more rapidly in hominids leading to humans than in nonhuman primate lineages, or nonprimate mammal lineages.

Lahn felt this random chance mutation that is advantageous strikes only one individual in a population belonging to a particular species. Some of their offspring would inherit this mutation and also reproduce a little better because the mutation makes them more attractive or stronger. Over time this mutation would spread in the population to the point where it basically takes over the entire population and everybody has it. So we asked, given that the observed differences between humans and other species are likely due to the repeated occurrence of these sweeps, is it possible that we could observe one of these sweeps in action now?

We examined the variation of two of these genes and found that there indeed has been an advantageous variant in each of these two genes that arose very recently. One appeared roughly 6,000 years ago and is now found in over 30 percent of all the chromosomes in the world. The other mutated about 40,000 years ago and is now in over 70 percent of the chromosomes out there.

When and how did this genetic upgrade occur?

The study indicate that a single source gene made its appearance in the human gene pool approximately 37,000 years ago. The research indicates that the introduction of this new genetic material did not come from multiple occurrences of interbreeding between one humanoid group and another humanoid or pre-humanoid group. In their studies, Lahn and his colleagues performed a detailed statistical analysis of the DNA sequence structure of the gene microcephalin, which is known to play a role in regulating brain size in humans. Mutations in the human gene cause development of a much smaller brain, a condition called microcephaly.

In new studies researchers performed detailed sequence comparisons between the D alleles and the non-D alleles of microcephalin. The scientists determined that these two classes of alleles have likely evolved in two separate lineages for about 1.1 million years with the non-D alleles having evolved in the Homo sapiens lineage and the D alleles having evolved in an archaic, and now extinct, Homo lineage. Then, about 37,000 years ago, a copy of the D allele crossed from the archaic Homo lineage into humans, possibly by interbreeding between members of the two populations. This copy subsequently spread in humans from a single copy when it first crossed into humans to an allele that is now present in an estimated 70 percent of the population worldwide today.

Lahn said the group's data suggest that the interbreeding was unlikely to be a thorough genetic mixing, but rather a rare - and perhaps even a single event that introduced the ancestral D allele previously present in this other Homo species such as the Neanderthals into the human line.

Editor/s Note: The scientists suggest the mutation occurred by humans breeding with a lesser species such as Neanderthals who probably had less brain power. I suggest these events had to do with ET visitations and the mixing or creation of greater brain power. Finding evidence of mixing is not all that surprising. But our study demonstrates the possibility that interbreeding contributed advantageous variants into the human gene pool that subsequently spread. Evolution claims mutations cause the change. I suggest the thousands of UFOs in our skies, coupled with the abduction phenomenon is a more likely possibility for the increase in our brain power.

Extraterrestrial Evangelism

Scientist Dr. Carl Sagan in his book, "Intelligent Life in the Universe" indicated Earth had likely been visited by extraterrestrials numerous times. He states, "Sumer was an early--perhaps the first -civilization the contemporary sense on the planet Earth. It was founded in the forth millennium B.C. or earlier. We don't know where the Sumerians came from. I feel that if the Sumerian civilization is depicted by the descendents of the Sumerians themselves to be of non-human origin, the relevant legends should be examined carefully." (Page 456)

He goes on to ask, "What might an advanced extraterrestrial civilization want from us?"......He answered his own question by stating, "One of the primary motivations for the exploration of the New World was to convert the inhabitants to Christianity -- peacefully if possible -- forcefully if necessary. Can we exclude the possibility of an extraterrestrial evangelism?" (Page 463)

Dr. Francis Crick won the Nobel Prize for helping to discover the structure of DNA, the master molecule of life. He now believes that the 'origin of life' was from space. I think there is a prejudice among scientists regarding current evolutionary theories. Many of them have spent their careers considering the theory to be scientific fact and are loath to let that go. Their need to cling to that theory at all costs smacks more of faith than science. Besides the evidence that there was but a single genetic code, there is also the issue of so-called "simple" cell complexity.

Dr. Crick wanted to determine the probability that even a single molecule of DNA could come into existence by chance. The probability for transition from inanimate to animate would be ten to the 40,000th power. Mathematically speaking, anything above ten to the 50th power is considered statistically impossible, because the sum total of all the electrons in the universe is only ten to the fifty-second power. The Bible asserts that the Elohim said: "Let us fashion Adam in our image and after our likeness." Scientific teams have determined we have DNA with 30,000+ genes designed to create us. Strangely there are 223 genes that do not have the required predecessors on the genomic evolutionary tree indicating the creation of humans is very different from other animals.

Where and how much has the genetic upgrade spread?

As a species, homo sapiens exhibits many marked distinctions from other mammals. Particularly notable is the human brain, which is far larger and more complex than that of all other species. The above results argue that the remarkable phenotypic evolution of the human brain is correlated with accelerated evolution in the protein-coding regions of the underlying genes, particularly those involved in brain development. These results also argue that the accelerated evolution, visible across many genes, likely reflects the accumulation of a large number of advantageous mutations scattered across many brain-related genes.

Is the human brain still evolving?

The most salient trend in the evolutionary history of Homo sapiens is the rapid increase of brain size and complexity. Lahn states, "We reasoned that if a gene has evolved adaptively in the making of the human species, it may well continue to undergo adaptive evolution even after the emergence of anatomically modern humans. By analyzing human polymorphism patterns, we found evidence that some of these genes are indeed experiencing ongoing positive selection in humans."

Of particular interest are the ASPM and Microcephalin genes. In each of these genes, a new sequence variant arose in the recent past of human history and has since swept to exceptionally high frequency around the world, presumably because of strong positive selection operating on the new variant. We do not yet know the exact fitness advantage conferred by these new variants. However, given the highly specific function of ASPM and Microcephalin in regulating brain size and also given their history of intense adaptive evolution in the lineage leading to Homo sapiens, it is reasonable to hypothesize that these new variants segregating in modern humans may improve some aspect of brain function. We are currently testing this hypothesis. These findings suggest the tantalizing possibility that the human brain is still evolving, in the sense that it is still undergoing rapid adaptive changes. The Study suggests that introduction of the genetic upgrade occurred somewhere in Eurasia. It reveals that this genetic upgrade has spread to about 70% of the population.

Animal Alive After Space Travel

Water bears or tardigrades invertebrate

NASA Scientists have revealed that tiny eight-legged water bears, water-dwelling, segmented animals survived exposure to the harsh environment of space on a ten day Earth-orbiting mission. Even though the 40,000 cell invertebrate was exposed to solar radiation it. Bacteria as also survived space travel. This is further support for the idea that simple life forms could travel between planets. This idea, called panspermia, that Sir Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wickramasinghe popularized about 30 years ago, claims the seeds of life are everywhere, and that microbial life on Earth could have traveled here from Mars or even from another star system, and then evolved into the plethora of species seen today. These tiny eight legged creatures have been around since early Cambrian 540,000 years ago. I agree with Francis Crick that life and changes to humans are coming from space.

USA Reports

Note: We have recently received several sightings explained as Planet Jupiter that is bright in the southern & western sky in evenings this month.

Alabama - Oblong Light

MOBILE -- My wife and I driving east on the east side of the bridge and saw the oblong light for about one second as passed under the light. An oblong light pulsed three times at 9:30 PM on September 8, 2008. The light was about 100 to 200 feet over the Mobile bay bridge. No idea what it was. But we both agreed we had not ever seen anything like that. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Arizona – Photo

PINAL COUNTY -- On September 10, 2008, I was out taking pictures of a dramatic lightening storm and caught a UFO descending out of thundercloud. Photo taken by MUFON field investigator and state section director for Pinal County Arizona.

Florida - Cigar Shape

PANAMA CITY -- Shane Gray writes, "On Tuesday, September 9, 2008, I was walking from my barn to my house about 8 PM, when a big ball of light caught my eye, with a small plane flying directly behind it as if it was chasing the object." The ball of light was incredibly bright and coming directly toward me. It started to make a big circle south toward Panama City. When it was directly overhead, I was able to see its cigar shape with a light coming out of the sides kind of like there were windows on the side. I did not see any wings or any strobe lights as it continued south until I lost sight of it. Ten to fifteen minutes later, I saw the same object coming back toward my house following with the small plane still in trail. Then, when it started to circle back to the south, the plane continued on a straight path to the north and two fighter jets showed up and followed the object until I lost sight of it again.

Then ten to fifteen minutes went by and the object showed back up following the same path, but there were a total of six fighter jets following it at this time. One was extremely close to the left side of the object, one to the far right and four behind it flying in formation and it was obvious then that they were following this object. This continued for four more circles in the same flight path. The last time I saw the object it was about 9:45 PM. I do have video tape of the sighting. My daughter brought her video camera out and began filming the object on the second pass. On Thursday, September 11, we were outside at 9 PM, we noticed four fighter jets overhead flying erratically. After thirty-five minutes, these fighter jets began dropping flares that disappeared in about ten seconds. In the twenty years I have never seen these fighter jets drop flares like that, which makes me think that they were trying to confuse e us about what we saw two nights before. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Illinois - Flying Feathery Triangle

MT. VERNON -- I live in Southern Illinois within the Salem, Centralia, Nashville area. On August 26, 2008, there was a crescent moon after midnight and I saw "something" coming into my scope of view heading directly from the west. It appeared to be flying about 11,000 feet in altitude, was a luminescent almost transparent color of grayish white, crescent shaped and appeared to be about 100 yards across.

As it traveled toward the light of the moon it had what I could only describe as a feathery appearance on the outward edges. It was moving a very high rate of speed. Not extremely fast, but at a very good clip. I continued watching this "thing" move toward the light of the moon and once it reached the aura of the light of the was gone. The thing about my sighting was how smooth and fluid like its movement was. It was the most amazing thing I have ever seen. The one thing that REALLY puzzled me was the feathery appearance between the outside edges as it moved across the sky. Propulsion signature, preparing to cloak? Very puzzling!! Thanks to MUFON Thanks to MUFON CMS.

GALESBURG -- I was traveling west on I-74, at 11:30 AM, and observed a circular UFO, half silver and half bright white traveling upwards towards a large cloud June 29, 2008. It began slowing down as it approached the edge of the cloud. It hovered for a second, then entered the cloud and appeared in a small hole just at the clouds edge hovering for another second. Then it entered the cloud mass. I awaited it's exit upon the other side of the cloud and it remained in the cloud for the next 20 minutes. It seems after much researching on the internet UFO sites,( a first for me) that there are multiple sightings within the past year in our northwest areas. Thank you for giving me a place to report my experience. It's my first and also rather exciting!

Comments: This sighting is significant because the witness made the observations during daylight hours and had the object in view for a considerable period of time. The associated clouds and "small hole" also parallels other sightings of objects. The witness said that she was driving west on I-17 in her report. The highway number has been corrected to I-74 which runs near Galesburg. Weather: (At Nearby Davenport, Iowa) Skies Were Broken (Mostly Cloudy) at 2,800 Feet, with other cloud layers at 4,100 Feet and 5,000 Feet Respectively. Visibility Was 10 Miles. Winds Were From the Northwest at 14 MPH With Gusts to 21 MPH. The bottom line is that I have no explanation for this sighting. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

Louisiana - Photo and Video

PRAIRIEVILLE -- On Tuesday, September 9, 2008 around 7:00 PM, I was at my home and noticed a very bright object moving slowly west in the western sky. I watched it for about a minute then went inside my house to get my camcorder. I recorded the object for a few minutes then went back inside to get my wife. When we came out just a minute later the object was gone. We witnessed a very similar object here at our home on the night of July 4, 2008. The object was fairly high and seemed to be moving slowly to the west. The total time I witnessed this object was around 5 minutes. We are about 5 miles southeast of Baton Rouge, LA. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Michigan - Five Large Orange Lights Flying Low

QUINCY, (SOUTHERN MICHIGAN) – On September 6, 2008, the witness left a voice message with the highlights of the sighting his family experienced. The witness was contacted and filled in details of his sighting. He stated that his family noticed 5 orange lights flying quite low to the northwest between 9:09 to 9:19 PM. At the time he was driving northbound on N. Ray-Quincy Road. Soon one object vanished, then another, and then another leaving two objects. He then stopped the car and the two remaining lights flew quite low over the highway and continued towards the southeast. The witness stated they he became quite frightened and he and his family immediately all got in the car and left. The lights were orange with another reddish-orange light blinking on the bottom. The lights were about 1/4 the size of a moon. They emitted no sound.

Comments: The witness is convinced that these lights were no known aircraft. Like most night sightings identification is quite difficult. For this reason no identification can be made. Listen to Witness Report (MP3)

Montana - Photo Brass Sphere

HELENA -- Approximately July 7, 2008. I was getting ready to sell 15 ponies so I went to all our corrals with a disposable camera. I was in a hurry and just went snapping pictures. I had to pick up my wife in Mt. So it was about 3 or 4 in the afternoon, I quickly used up the roll and went to Wal-Mart in Helena Mt. Ask them to just put it on a disc it was done before we left town. We got home and were going to email the photos to the prospective buyers.

When I noticed the UFO in one of the shots at first I thought something on the lens, but it was fresh out of the tin foil pack and the UFO appeared in none of the other shots. This is not the only sighting we have experienced out on our ranch but the only one with proof. The object is in the upper left hand quadrant. Thanks to MUFON Thanks to MUFON CMS

New Mexico -- Twelve White Light, Red, Blue Lights

TAOS – Two witnesses report seeing a white light that looks like a star that is traveling up sideways and fast moving at 8 PM, on September 10, 2008. Shortly afterwards they saw several more. The bright white light turned red. Also saw several others blue and others almost in formation of a triangle. We took pictures with our camera. We stayed for almost two hours and saw a dozen lights. It was incredible. We noticed when we zoomed in on the object, it was almost pulsing and we also heard a whirling sound. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

EL PASO -- Driving on highway from El Paso to Carlsbad, we saw a bright light that looked like a sign. As we got close it started to change shapes. We finally were right next to it, I pulled to the side of the road. It was a reddish color. The light turned off as Jerry got out of the care to take a picture. A white fog started to approach us, so I left as soon as I could. Jerry and Tanya saw multi lights turning in a circle, Jerry started to take pictures and video. It stayed there for a moment then disappeared. All of us were scared, some were screaming. Thanks to MUFON Thanks to MUFON CMS

New Jersey – Disc Spotted Over Atlantic Ocean

ATLANTIC CITY -- Just left the Casino and went on the Boardwalk, looking out over the Ocean, when one of the other people spotted it. There had to be over 50 people in our area that saw it ,very clearly! It appeared to be a classic saucer shape over the water at 30 degrees or so about two miles out over the water traveling south. We all saw it, and some folks had a camera, and almost everyone took out their cell phones to call traveled what appeared to be 50 a straight line, then suddenly it just went straight up and out of sight at a very fast lights, just a lead grey color....I am certain that it should be in the news. I can only guess that it had to be over 100 feet long, some of us agreed to that size, some thought larger. I am enclosing a Photo, this photo is NOT the actual object that we all saw but gives you some idea of its size and shape. Thanks to MUFON CMS

BERNARDSVILLE -- While attending a small outdoor party in Bernardsville I was facing South West when I noticed 4 to 5 moving objects in the sky. The unusual formation, brightness and motion drew my attention. At first I thought they could be helicopters. They flew too near each other to be planes. They appeared to be in loose formation. One object was brighter than the others. All were moving vertical, upwards....Within 1 to 2 minutes of observation 2 to 3 objects merged into the one brightest object. Now the one object continued to rise. A plane flying perpendicular gave us a good sense for height comparison. This object was much higher. Two to three minutes later, the object vanished. The lights disappeared like a light switch being shut off. Four individuals, in addition to myself, saw the object in the sky. Thanks to MUFON CMS

New York - AWACs Jet Tracks UFO

On September 14, 2008, at 6:58 PM, I went out to my front porch and called my friend who lives three miles north of me. We were talking and I noticed an object in the sky moving slowly west in a straight line. I knew it wasn't a plane, and told my friend who also saw it and that it was silent. We were both watching when it disappeared. Within seconds I started to hear a sound of a jet that flew over my house towards the UFO. It was one of those jets with the radar on top of it. I think they call them AWACS. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Ohio - A Bright Orange Slow Moving Mass

GARRETTSVILLE -- On September 1, 2008 this weekend, at Nelson Ledges Quarry and park, we had just finished watching Peter Rowan and Tony Rice play. It had to have been about 8:15 PM. I looked over see what this couple was looking at and sure enough it was this bright orange, and very slow moving mass in the sky. I will say it did look like it had a tail at first, which slowly disappeared, but the larger mass did not do the same. Everyone watched in wonder, and I am still wondering what this was. I saw something very similar at the end of August as well. Both times these masses would have been moving north to south...any ideas? Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Texas - Photos

DALLAS -- I was photographing the sky on two different days because the clouds were unusual one day very lacy and the sunset was nice the next day; and both times very pretty. I did not see the discs until I was zooming in on the photographs to see the detail. Both objects seem disc-like and shiny. I seem to be having a fair number of recent sightings and am so glad to have captured these on digital media, even though I did not notice them at the time. These were taken the middle of the first week in September in North Central Texas. The photos were taken with a Sony Cybershot 7.2 megapixel camera on automatic settings. I also noticed that another person from NCT, very nearby has also submitted a report with photos of a similar object. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Virginia - Photo

PEARISBURG – On September 9, 2008, once again another series of photos from the same area of Virginia. Thanks to MUFON Thanks to MUFON Thanks to MUFON CMS

Washington -- Alien in 150 Feet Across UFO Lands

WESTPORT -- Standing 100 feet at just the other side of the top of the hill behind Kilahanna campground on August 15, 1967, I saw a gold spacecraft land on the dunes 1/3 mile from the coastline at 9 PM.. It was near silent when it landed 120 yards from my view. I was looking down on a small grade at the landed space craft. It was 100% shiny 24K gold color. (looked like new gold) It landed with grace. The landing gear popped out straight like thin legs. I just stared at it for about a 30 seconds wondering what to do. Just then a door opened on the opposite side from my view. A alien dressed in a matching 24K gold color space suit came out of what looked like a ramp. It just flew straight through the air about 20 miles an hour to a nearby fir tree branch. I could see it close now and was frightened and shaking. It was standing 100 feet from me up in the tree about 20 ft above ground. It looked like a human body in a gold space suit that I had never seen before. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Outside USA Reports

Canada - Sightings

ALGONQUIN PROVINCIAL PARK -- On Sept. 3, 2008, I was camping with 4 other men in Parkside Bay on Ragged Lake, I had awakened at 4:30 AM, and had made coffee over the fire. While it was cooking, I walked down to the lake to look at the stars since the sun had not come up yet. As I looked a 1/2 mile to the south, I noticed a large bright multiple colored light with red, blue, green, yellow, and purple flashing right on the tree line. It was a sphere shaped object changing locations and it spanned the width of at least six large pine trees directly below it. I could see them silhouetted below the object. I did not have a camera but my binoculars were in the canoe so I took a closer look. The object was definitely sphere shaped with alternating color patterns. It rose and lowered in the sky but never below the tree line. After about an hour it rose to a height of 100 to 150 feet above the trees, but did not get smaller or travel along the trees in any direction.

There was no sound and the changes in the lights were not consistent with aircraft. After another 5 to 10 minutes I heard an airplane off to the west of the lake, at cruising altitude, moving much faster and much smaller than the object. The plane was gone from my sight within five minutes but the object remained for at least another 20 to 25 minutes without moving in any direction. I continued watching until it faded from view. During and after the sighting I felt I was watching some type of UFO. I read about another similar MUFON sighting which took place north of Smoke Lake on August 19, 2008 at 10:14 PM. Thanks to MUFON CMS

KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- There has been another major sighting which started from Savona B.C. to around the Cherry Creek area that was posted: September 5, 2008 A craft with strobing lights on it touched down, made a jump up into the air, came back down, made another jump and did this several times, but each time it made it's jump, it sped up dramatically. Eventually it arced up into the sky and dropped onto the highway behind a witness who was pulling a trailer behind his truck and bounced up into the air again and was gone. The witness estimates the object was approx:: 100 feet away from the back of the his trailer. There is lots more to add to this story, so will get at writing it up soon.

Also I found out a lady in Houston, B.C., where I live had some pretty amazing footage which I am going to see about getting my hands on and will then file a report. Finally we may get some of the missed sighting reports "hopefully" next Wednesday as a large article has finally been written up by the Interior Newspaper and it should be out next week. Also the newspaper is running another article, this time on the Sasquatch sighting that took place here as well. I have already talked with the reporter and will meet her tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

VERNON, B.C. -- I was walking my dog, on September 12th, 2008 - around noon and as always had my camera on me and snapped a picture of an object in the sky. I tried to get a good look at it, but couldn't tell what it was. It moved very slowly, and seemed to fade in and out. It appeared to be a very large boomerang at cloud level, but very faint to the eye; same colour as the cloud, except the front end which appeared darker. I snapped a few pictures, but it only showed up in one picture. The photo is copywrited.

Cyprus - Objects Ascending

LIMASSOL, DEBENHAMS OLYMPIA -- I was facing sea side and there was something going on above the sea and far from the coast on September 3, 2008, at 9:45 PM. First one shimmering and not so bright light showed up, looked to me very close to the sea level and was ascending slowly with horizontal movements to the left and right while ascending. It took around minute to disappear up in the sky. Right after that one, another two showed up ascending and had similar movements as first one. It took a minute for them to disappear. And finally the fourth showed up and went on the same path as first three. It was a spectacular sight. I saw it and later on found that the mom of a friend of mine had the same experience. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

France - Triangular UFO

MAURY – At 2 PM, while travelling easterly on D117 in the Maury Valley near Perpignan, France on September 4, 2008, a perfect triangle craft crossed my sight at unbelievable speed north to south. It was probably not above 3000 feet AGL and zipped just above avoiding the mountain, summit to summit the valley is two miles wide. The occurrence lasted half a second; it was not humanly possible to sustain such maneuver. The approximate speed over 10,000 miles an hour, noiseless and no sonic bang heard. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

UK - Sightings

BO'NESS, WEST LOTHIAN, SCOTLAND - -- On September 12, 2008, my Mum, brother and I saw five bright orange lights in the sky that flew by one after the other. The first one we thought was a hot air balloon that looked kind of like a fire. But we just dismissed it as "weird". Then a few moments later, two more appeared from the same place. They were closer together, and seemed to head towards the River Forth. You could see that there was definitely a fire there. Moments after that there were another two, these were even closer than the last ones and seemed to resemble a thin shape. There was no noise what-so-ever. This was at ten 'o'clock at night.

RIPON, NORTH YORKSHIRE, ENGLAND – On August 7, 2008, my husband phoned at 10 PM, to tell me to look out the front door and there were three golden lights traveling very, very slowly then disappeared, they seemed to fade away but could have been traveling very quickly away from me. As these lights were disappearing another set of three or four arched over the houses in front of ours until there were about 7 of them, they moved slowly without sound and intertwined with each other, sometimes forming a diamond, three lights formed a straight line then the middle one vanished, a few more slowly came over the houses again in a single file where they continued to move slowly around until vanishing, then they all gradually faded away in approximately the same place until they had all gone and no more came over although I am still watching.

BUSH HILL PARK/ENFIELD, ENGLAND -- A spherical gaseous object was travelling south on August 31, 2008 at 1:10 AM, and looked to be descending as it was getting larger. It stopped moving briefly and remained almost still - I estimated its position at this point to be above Enfield Town Park. I dashed inside to get my camera and the object began to retreating back in the direction it came from by the time I got back outside a few seconds later. The object ascended and then just vanished either into low cloud or simply disappeared. I managed to take 3 photographs as the object moved away however these are very poor quality as I forgot to engage VR on my 300mm zoom lens and by this time the object was some distance away. I can supply these if required. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research


Donate to keep getting these Files.

Donations to Filer's Files. It is becoming more expensive and difficult for everything I do here at the National UFO Center. Sending out hundreds of messages has become quite expensive. If you would care to lend a hand it would be greatly appreciated. I have placed a donation button below. Also I should add, I don't know of anyone in the UFO field who makes any funds out of what they enjoy doing, all expenses that myself and others in the UFO field come straight out of our own pockets. I guess one has to have a passion for the topic, but it does get expensive for everything one does. Consider helping, UFO experts need your support. Only a few people who have enjoyed these files for almost ten years have chosen to provide a donation. Don't miss the latest images of UFOs from Earth and Mars.
