U.S. Pilot Ordered to Shoot Down UFO

How did Earth and the heavenly bodies that govern it come into existence? How do they remain so perfectly consistent in their paths, without losing or gaining speed -not even by one second? How did the Universe begin? Could it have been the result of some 'cosmic explosion'? Or could it be that there is some kind of super intelligence in control of the design and maintenance of all the moving heavenly bodies? And if there is someone in control, who is it?

U.S. Pilot Ordered to Shoot Down UFO Over England

A former US fighter pilot was ordered to shoot down a massive UFO over Norwich, England, 50 years ago. RAF controllers told U.S. pilot Milton Torres to "lock on" and launch all 24 of his rockets over the city. But as he came within seconds of firing at the alien intruder — "the size of an aircraft carrier" on his radar — it vanished at 10,000 mph.

The amazing close encounter is revealed in secret Ministry of Defense X-Files which were declassified Monday. Milton said, "It was some kind of alien snooping over England. I guess we'll never know what it was."The incident happened in 1957 when Milton was a 26-year-old U.S. Air Force lieutenant based at RAF Manston in Kent, England.

At 11 PM one night he was ordered to scramble in his F-86D Sabre fighter to attack a "bogey" hovering above Norfolk. Speaking about it publicly for the first time, he said: "I was told I would be firing a complete salvo, all 24 rockets. I was pumped up — this was the sort of thing that happened before a war."He got the UFO on his radar and ordered to fly at full throttle in cloudy weather, and closed for the attack at the Sabre's top speed of almost 700 mph — then it disappeared off his screen in a flash. This was a flying object with very unusual flight patterns," the pilot said. "In the initial briefing it was suggested to us that the bogey actually was motionless for long intervals." the pilot said he was given the order to fire a volley of 24 rockets at the mysterious object. "To be quite candid I almost (expletive) my pants!" the pilot said, saying he asked for confirmation — which he received. Retired U.S. Lieutenant Milton Torres told Britain's Sky News on Monday that he was the pilot and has spent 50 frustrating years attempting to uncover the truth of his mid-air encounter. Milton, now 77, said: "I was smoking, as fast as I could go. This thing had a different propulsion system. It was not an airplane."The flyer said he was visited afterwards by a sinister security official and warned not to tell anyone — so he kept silent until now. The close encounter is in 19 files made available online yesterday by the National Archives.

Another incident occurred on April 21, 1991, when Alitalia pilot Achille Zaghettie was the aircraft commander on a flight from Milan to London's Heathrow when a UFO streaked across his field of vision. He yelled out, "Look out, look out,' to my copilot who looked and also saw the UFO. I asked ACC(area control center) operator if he saw something on his screen and stated, I see an unknown target ten nautical miles behind you. An investigation ruled out a missile but not a UFO.

Editor's Note: I was asked by London Control to intercept a UFO over England, but we were unarmed. My story is very similar to the F-86 intercept but we had no missiles, but it was a huge UFO that showed up on radar as large as the Firth of Forth Bridge in Scotland.

Astronauts Could Mix DIY Concrete for Cheap Moon Base

Colin Barras reports, "A lunar base could be built from waterless concrete composed entirely of moon dust, according to US researchers." NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter will next year scout out a good landing site ahead of the 2020 mission that will put US astronauts back on the moon. A four-strong team will spend seven days on the lunar surface, but NASA hopes to eventually have long-term moon bases. However, building permanent structures on the moon would be astronomically expensive, says Houssam Toutanji, a civil engineer at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. "It costs a tremendous amount of money to take even 1 kilogram of material to the moon," he says. "Depending on who you talk to, the cost could be $50,000 to $100,000."

Toutanji thinks those costs could be sidestepped by making concrete from moon dust aggregate, and binding it together using sulphur purified from lunar soil. "You want the sulfur to be in a liquid or semi-liquid form to work as a binding agent," says Toutanji, which requires heating it to between 130 and 140 °C. Once cooled, concrete made in that way quickly hardens like a rock. "Within an hour you get an ultimate-strength concrete," To test the properties of lunar concrete, Toutanji and Richard Grugel, a geological engineer at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, also in Huntsville, used a simulated lunar soil.

They added 35 grams of purified sulphur to every 100 grams of dust and cast the mix into a number of small cubes about 5cm on a side. Those were exposed to 50 cycles of severe temperature changes, each time frozen down to -27 °C and then warmed back to room temperature. Even after that treatment the concrete could withstand compressive pressures of 170 times atmospheric pressure). Snip. Thanks to

US Military Satellites Can See Heat Sources

The "Aviation Week & Space Technology", page 28, "US Milsats Dodge Y2K" has this interesting paragraph: "Officials would not comment on Defense Support Program capabilities, but the satellites probably detected many new 'targets' such as large fireworks displays. DSP infrared sensors are designed to detect hot, long-burning events such as missile launches, but can 'see' relatively small heat sources."

Editor's Note: We assume that UFO propulsion systems would provide enough heat to be present on the satellite images. Space Command admits to picking up as many as a dozen uncorrelated targets each day, that are unidentified flying objects that are not kept in their space data base.

Peru Fingerprints of the Gods

Strange parallel tracks found at numerous sites may be launch sites

Readers interested in exploring Graham Hancock, fascinating book, "Fingerprints of the God"s in which he contends that some previously enigmatic ancient but highly-advanced civilization had existed in prehistory, one which served as the common progenitor civilization to all subsequent known ancient historical ones. Supposedly, sometime after the end of the last Ice Age this civilization passed on to its inheritors profound knowledge of such things as astronomy, architecture, medicine, and mathematics. The book pivots on "fingerprints" of these civilizations, evidence of which Hancock finds in the descriptions of godmen like Osiris, Thoth, Quetzalcoatl, and Virachocha. These creation myths predate history, and Hancock suggests that in 10,450 B.C., a major poleshift took place, before which Antarctica was further from the South Pole than it is today, and after which it was moved to its present location.

In support of his radical ideas concerning the great antiquity of Tiahuanaco, Hancock gives startling proof that the coastline of South America was mapped in extraordinarily accurate detail long before that continent was "discovered" by Europeans. Maps such as Piri Reis map of 1513 and the Oronteus Finaeus map of 1531, depict the coastline of southern South America and - on the same map - accurately show the sub glacial topography of nearby Antarctica beneath its great layer of ice. Twelve miles south of Lake Titicaca, located within the center of the array of geoglyphs, lies the megalithic ruins of Tiahuanaco.

Many of the ancient leaders in Peru and Bolivia have exceptionally large heads, and appear to be Caucasian who lived among the Indians and wore long robes that infer colonization from another planet or at the least a different species than the natives of South America. The exceptionally elongated cranium on the ancient leaders known as Dolichocephaloids, suggest a far different past than the Indians of the Andes. Not only did they look different, they had advanced knowledge of medicine, biology, astronomy and construction techniques. Tiahuanaco has numerous carvings of prehistoric animals and is located near Lake Titicaca that is believed to be the place where life on Earth began. The ancient city is designed using a clear understanding of astronomy and advanced construction techniques.

Professor Arthur Posnansky studied the area in the 1930 ‘s before much of the early stones were carried off for building the Bolivian railway claims in his 50 year study "Tiahuanaco, The cradle of American Man" the site was occupied in 15,000 B.C. based on calculations of archeoastronomy. Sculptures of prehistoric mastodons, elephants, rhinoceros, glyptodonts, toxodons, giant beavers, giant jaguars, and giant ground sloths show the builders had knowledge of animals that became extinct ten thousand years ago. Paleontologists tell us that mankind was living in caves and hunting animals for food, while a sophisticated city according to Posnansky was being built by moving an cutting blocks weighting as much as 400 tons.

Ramparts fifty miles long were erected, a pyramid carbon dated to 1800 -1500 BC stands ten stories tall the the site called Pampa de las Llamas-Moxete. The Huari civilization , the urban planners built an administrative center at Pikillacta 17 miles southeast of Cuzco, a foursquare military encampment with over 700 buildings.

Further north in Peru some of the most ancient sites on Earth there are faces similar to those on Mars. Across from the ruins of Ollantaytambo in the Urubamba Valley stands a sacred mountain believed to have the profile of Viracocha, the ancient sun god, carved into the stone who came from the skies in the Age of Leo - approximately 12,000 = years ago.

When the sun strikes this profile of Viracocha during the winter solstice, the mineral content of the mountain reflects and refracts the rays verifying the deity of Viracocha. As with all ancient civilizations, legends and ancient stone carvings and monuments speak of creation by gods who came from the skies teaching civilization. Many just seem to spring up as if out of nowhere. The legend goes that a white bearded God, Wiracocha, entered the town and blessed the people. They so honored him, that they carved his face in the mountainside, where you can see it today.

At Tiahuanaco, immense stone works were joined with modular fittings and complex breach-locking levels that have never been seen in any other ancient culture.

Many of the blocks were joined together with ‘T' shaped metal clamps that were poured into place by a portable forge. According to engineers, one of the largest single stones ever to be moved and put into building anywhere on earth (about 400 tons) was transported to Tiahuanaco from a quarry over two hundred miles away. This feat is more incredible when one realizes the route of transport was through a mountain range up to 15,000 feet.

Although a date of extreme antiquity is often suggested, carbon-14 dates from the site place the construction at no earlier that 1,700 BC. A date which was greatly contested by the Archaeologist Posnansky who spent 50 years researching the site, and who became determined through archaeo-astronomy that it was either built at an earlier time, or built over pre-existing constructions and occupied in 15,000 B.C.


Peruvian surgeons used knives, chisels, hammers drills, saws, and scalpels with remarkable precision to cut holes in patient's skulls that is known as trephination. Hundreds of trephined skulls have been found in Peru that outnumber all the known prehistoric trephined skulls in the rest of the world. Brain surgery was going on in Peru on living people for thousands of years before the advent of modern medicine. Those operated upon apparently lived since there is evidence of healing of the bone for years after the operation. The purpose of the operations was to treat not only head injuries but also neurological problems such as epilepsy. I suggest this was the result of advanced technology brought to the Andes by the ancient astronauts.

Arizona - UFO Story Peaks Morris' Interest

Morris Stephenson reports, "After a long lapse of not hearing any new stories about UFOs, I heard one from a reliable source Sunday afternoon. A long-time friend and retired dairy farmer Galen Brubaker and his wife, were special guests who gave the county five acres of land on Blackwater River. The Brubakers said their encounter took place in the mid-1960s near the Grand Canyon, Arizona. They were on their way to Flagstaff when their four daughters started talking about the bright moon in the west. Galen didn't realize at first what they were talking about because he could see the moon coming up in the east. The girls were looking to the other side of the car. Everyone in the car realized there was a bright object on the left side and the moon was on the right. The object was about twice the size of the moon and about 1,000 feet away and it appeared to be following the car," he recalled. Their youngest daughter, Brenda, became scared and remembered something she'd heard from the Bible about an object coming from the sky and taking the youngest child.

Jeanette, the oldest daughter, told her baby sister that no, she was wrong. The object took the oldest, not the youngest child. Galen said he decided to pull over. Brubaker and his wife said the object was round in shape and very bright as they watched from the parked car for ten minutes. They said the girls became nervous and wanted to get away from the object, so they resumed their trip and lost sight of the object behind trees. The next morning, the Flagstaff and other daily newspapers in the area, had headlines about the UFO sightings from many residents in the area. They brought the newspapers back home, They believe it was a UFO.

I still have a couple other people I need to talk with about their encounters. One, in particular, is a retired couple who live at Smith Mountain Lake, and the UFO they saw was over Franklin County not that long ago. Snip. and John Schuessler.

SEDONA -- Climbing Cathedral Rock on this clear day I took lots of photos on April 8, 2008. When I got home and opened the photos and enlarged the attached picture and I noticed two silver objects and four dark objects in some sort of pattern in the sky. When I looked at the other photos I took they were not there. Thanks to MUFON CMS.

California – Sightings

I was taking pictures of my living room and kitchen with a new digital camera in the evening last week. I noticed nothing unusual. A few days later I viewed the photographs and noticed a strange anomalous golden teardrop shaped object in the top of a few of the photographs. I thought it was a camera error of some sort - and still consider this as a possibility - except when I looked closely there is a shadow behind the object! I have photos of the same view in my living room taken minutes later where the object does not exist! Maybe someone can tell me what this is. Thanks to MUFON Thanks to MUFON CMS

CLEMENTE – On October 12, 2008? My brother first saw the round "bright" glowing shape at 1:10 PM, My mother and I looked in the direction and followed it for 5 minutes. We were golfing at Shorecliff's Golf Course in San Clemente when the sighting happened. It took off to the left in a quick dash (to the north). My mom and brother did not see that, I was the only one that saw it at that time. But, as I was hoping to see it again about 2 holes later, there it was crossing the ski from North to South. That is when ALL of us saw it fly very fast across the sky to the south. So yes, all three of us saw it in motion. Did anyone else it? Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Florida - Airborne Metallic Object Drifting

MELBOURNE BEACH – On October 17, 2008, we had just finished walking our dog on the beach at 5:50 PM, when I saw a glint of metal and in that instant I thought it was a star. It was a bright day with no clouds and as I watched it I pointed it out to my husband. My second thought was that it was a skydiver, but knew it was too high for that. It was almost straight up. It appeared to be coming down and drifting west. I always have my Sony camera, but when I zoomed in I couldn't catch it in the lens. We watched it until it went behind or west of a huge 3 story home. As it seemed to drift west. My husband said it looked like it was drifting slowly and surmised it was lightweight, but far heavier than a balloon. It must've been metal because my first site of it seemed to be that a star had just popped out of the sky so that must have been the sun's reflection on it. It was not a skydiver, but was about 1/2 that size. It never got low enough to really see it in detail, but it drifted west. It headed west to the Indian River Lagoon.

Comments: This is the fifth report that I have received from the Georgia/Florida area in the past 2 days. This sighting was not a weather balloon nor a celestial object. The sighting could have possibly been another type of balloon, but that is speculation. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

Georgia - Lights in Triangular Formation Trail Leading Red

WARNER ROBINS – On October 16, 2008, at 11 PM, the witness and his girl friend were star gazing and saw a red light followed by a formation of 3 lights in a triangular formation for almost thirty minutes. A loud rumbling sound was heard and the object slowly moved over the witness's house. The object executed a turn and returned three more times flying in a circle. Stars were visible in the middle of the light formation, but the witness thought that the lights belonged to one object. The witness lost sight of the object in the trees after the fourth pass.

Comments: I really don't have an explanation for this sighting. Given the late hour (11 PM) on a weekday additional witnesses to the sighting are more unlikely. The area is home to Robins Air Force Base. Anyone seeing these lights is urged to file a report. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

Kentucky - UFO Near the Moon

MOUNT WASHINGTON -- On October 19, 2008, I was outside taking pictures of the moon in the morning. It was a very clear blue sky. The moon was still visible. I noticed that there was something else in my view while I was searching for the moon in one of my photos. I snapped the picture. I jokingly said to my family that I had just taken a picture of a UFO. Later after I uploaded the pictures I realized it was somewhat strange looking. It does not look like a plane, or cloud to me. The object was very small and far away to the left and small in comparison to the moon. Thanks to Thanks to MUFON CMS

Illinois Man Sees Bright Strange Shaped Light

CHICAGO RIDGE -- A few minutes after 9 PM, on October 9, 2008, I was playing with my dog in my yard. The dog suddenly looked up in as if following something moving quickly. I was already facing southwest and I saw this light (completely white) as bright as a star rapidly and silently traveling northwest to southeast. The forward part was shaped like a half sphere and the trailing end almost cone shaped. It was not like a meteor where the trailing end is like a tail. This seemed like a complete shape. I live by Midway Airport and any aircraft landing is so close you can read the markings on it. This was not an aircraft in any sense, it made no sound and was traveling more at the speed of a missile. It was not in any flight pattern aircraft in the region would make. It disappeared into a cloud which was actually far below a commercial plane traveling east to west. It never emerged from the other side of the cloud.

Comments: The light was not the International Space Station (ISS) according to satellite position charts. (The ISS had been visible earlier.) Perhaps the object could have been another satellite, but the shape description sounds unusual and doesn't fit the description of a satellite. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

Indiana -Two Round Amber Colored Spheres

INDIANAPOLIS -- Coming home from walking my dog at 10:15 PM, on October 11, 2008, I witnessed two round amber-colored objects flying northwest about 200 miles per hour at 1,000 feet. I was able to watch them as they slowly moved across the sky making not a single sound. They moved with stealth with a clearly amber in color and clearly round objects, one following the other about two miles behind following the same flight path. Silent, it blew me away. I find it strange that these flew over at the same time as a sighting viewed earlier in the year in Indianapolis. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Maryland - Burst Into Orange Fire

OCEAN CITY -- On October 14, 2008, my husband and I were walking on the Boardwalk near10th Street, and looking out over the Atlantic Ocean at the bright full moon. We saw what looked to be a plane burst into orange fire around 7 PM. It only illuminated for a few seconds in slow motion and faded back into the night sky. Then, a few minutes later in another area I saw it happen again, only further away. I kept pointing to the sky and saying to my husband, "did you just see that?" and he did... And a couple that passed by came up to us and said. "I saw you pointing to the sky, tell me you just saw that and we aren't crazy. I thought it was a plane on fire" And we both told them that we had seen it.

We all watched the strange orange glowing light pop up a half-dozen more times within ten minutes. The other couple called the Ocean City Police right away, but said it was probably Navy Maneuvers... Then, that faint orange burning glowing light shined again, but this time it was accompanied by four additional lights in a row... It really kind of looked like the Phoenix lights, like the five orange lights were part of the outside ring of a disk and it didn't last long nor move too much, rotated and then faded away. We were scared, we would have been able to track headlights from a plane or helicopter? These just faded away. Thanks to MUFON CMS

New Jersey - Strange Shiny Silver Objects in Afternoon Sky

PATERSON -- Around 3:45 PM, on October 10, 2008, I saw a strange thing in the eastern portion of the sky. I was standing across from city hall waiting for the bus while I marveled at the hordes of pigeons that swarmed around the steeple of the city hall building. I noticed a couple of birds that flew even higher than the pigeons. These birds were white in color and flew so high they could have been mistaken for small aircraft had they not circled and dived. Within their circling area I noticed a small glitter much higher than the circling birds and my first thought was "oh a star". I thought a little bit and said "its too early for stars." It was around that point when I realized this small silvery glittery thing was actually moving, but very very slow. It was moving so slow in fact I could look away and find it almost in the same position when I returned my gaze. The sky was very clear as far as I could see but it seemed that the shiny thing was traveling behind a cloud or something because I could see the silver color break up like things do when something passes by it. Any way it continued to travel towards the east very slow in a straight direction. I momentarily looked away to find yet another one traveling at a similar speed in the same path. I thought, perhaps that is just a flight path and those planes are not landing anytime soon because they are so high up . I turned away to check my bus a second and looked back in the direction of where they should have been and to my surprise the second silvery thing had caught up with the first and they seemed to be about 3 fingers apart from each other. I looked to see if there were more and when I looked back both were gone.

Comments: It is difficult to say what the witness sighted. Sometimes regular aircraft can look strange from a long distance. Aircraft can look like "silver orbs" without wings or fuselage. However, I can't say for sure if these objects were conventional aircraft. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

North Dakota -Triangle

MID. ND -- My father, 5-year-old niece, two golden-retriever dogs, and I had just made ourselves comfortable in our tent to sleep on July 29, 2008, at our family farm-site near the middle of North Dakota. My Dad had glanced up and said "Oh, look, the North Star!" I realized that what he thought was the North Star was actually much larger, brighter and coming quickly towards us. I said "Dad, it's coming AT us!" and was very alarmed. Dad then grabbed his glasses and sat up to look. When he said "Oh, wow!" My niece looked too. Dad and I sat quietly watching the object contemplating WHAT it could possibly be. I ruled out any aircraft

I decided it must be a large meteor, and became very afraid because it seemed on its trajectory it would hit nearby thinking,"Great - I'm gonna die in a tent" Then I realized it was actually slowing down and wasn't a meteor, and my Dad asked if I had my camera? I lamented it was in the truck so I decided to get the camera fifty feet away and kept sight of the UFO. I could see the object was an enormous size like a football stadium, round, bright white glowing "ball" with a silver/grey metallic-looking ring around. It was between 10-15,000 feet in altitude, and between 5-20 miles to the northeast with no sound. It nearly stopped, and then started going straight east away from us. It sped up making it difficult to find in the viewfinder, but I was able to take two photos. The entire sky was dark-black, though there was a hint of dusk when we first noticed the object. This event is one of the few times in my life where I felt certain that my life was in danger. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Pennsylvania - Contrail Photo with UFOs

GRAMPIAN -- In the early afternoon, I saw this peculiar cloud formation like a spinning current erupting from its center on October 11, 2008. I did not notice any active rotation at the time, but it has a definite spiral appearance to it. The formation dissipated a few moments after I took these shots, but it filled the sky at the time. I've never seen a cloud with this pattern or movement. Upon closer examination and magnification of the three photos, I noticed that there were strange objects in and around the clouds. They were not visible to the eye, but they appeared on these pictures.

These objects were completely silent, with a dark object in the top right quarter of the image. This object looks like a disc, but it is so small that its hard to tell. One side of the object appears metallic, while the other side was very dark and slightly purple. Finally, in the next image there are now two objects in the top right quarter of the picture, each is disc or spherical shaped and dark. All of these shots are taken on a canon digital rebel xt camera with an efs18-55mm lens. Thanks to MUFON CMS

South Carolina - Football Field Sized UFO

COLUMBIA -- I was driving home from work on October 15, 2008, at 6:31 PM, when I started to drive across the Lake Murray Dam, I saw a really bright light in the sky. Then I realized that no aircrafts are allowed to fly over the dam after 9/11 happened. Anyways as I started to cross the dam, it wasn't moving and it was very low and had five very bright lights with a red light in the middle of the craft. As I was looking at it, I noticed the moon was shining on it and it did not have any wings. It was very big about the size of a football field or so. I have never seen any type of aircraft that big flying that low. I got to the other side of the damn about a mile away and turned around, as I started driving back towards it, it suddenly just jolted forward and disappeared behind a tree-line. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Texas - Silver Metallic Cigar Shaped

MCKINNEY – My spouse was driving taking the kids to soccer on October 18, 2008, at 11:45 AM, while I was looking at the sky and saw a silver metallic cigar shaped object. I continued to watch it for awhile, but it didn't move and it was hovering high in the sky. It was not an airplane or a helicopter or a balloon. We are on the flight path into Dallas airport, and I am very familiar with airplanes and the shining or glinting they can get from the Texas sun. It seemed to go high up and we lost sight of it. One minute it was there and the next it was gone. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Virginia - Red Objects over Quantico

QUANTICO MARINE BASE – On Tuesday, October 14, 2008, I was celebrating the soldiers who just arrived back from Iraq and photographed these two objects while taking a random shot walking back to the car. Neither red object was spotted by my eyes. Later, I had a visible sighting when I arrived home with two other witnesses. I saw the white sphere shaped object slowly start to move, and alerted my friends. Sure enough, about a minute later two more white spheres appeared that slowly flew in a line formation, then switched to a delta formation. They then flew back in line and disappeared one by one. My friends felt weird as we watched for about four minutes. Thanks to Brandon Mccain

Washington – Photo of UFOs

TROUT LAKE -- I took this photo on October 12, 2008, at 2:36 PM, at the James Gilliland Ranch but did not see anything unusual at the time. I snapped several photos in a few minutes and did not see anything unusual on the remainder of the photos. I used a HP Photosmart M527 Digital Camera with a Maximum Resolution of 8 Mega-Pixels. Skies were partly cloudy with cloud bases around 8,000 feet

Comments: The specks in the above photos could be birds, but I don't know this for sure. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

Outside USA Reports

Canada - Sightings

CALGARY – I converted an ordinary Canadian IR webcam into a near infrared webcam that made it easy to detect the UFO probe shown in the following sequence on September 30, 2008. This only took a few hours to find in the skies over Calgary. I have many more sequences of fast maneuvering and moving rods, and high flying objects in clouds. The sky appears dark because it is shot in near infrared, using two film black negatives to block out all light but in the near infrared spectrum. Thanks to MUFON CMS

BRAMPTON, ONTARIO -- As I was standing outside on October 14, 2008, at 11:10 PM, to 11:30 PM, and suddenly saw a flashing red light grouped with clear lights coming in the direction towards me and passing directly below the tail of the airplane. The object continued toward the direction of the moon, but it's movements at first were in what came to mind as being skittery. It jumped first left then right then left again, covering forward distance. It then continued in a straight line with high speed in the direction of the moon. It passed underneath the moon's glow and I saw two vapor trails coming from the end. After a few seconds it reached it's destination and stopped and hovered. At this point I called a friend of mine and went inside because I was so freaked out. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

UXBRIDGE -- On October 11, 2008 ,while at Lakeridge Road I parked my car and noticed a black hawk circling up above and started to take pictures and then noticed a white light hanging in the sky. I immediately took pictures of this light and after about 40 seconds lost sight of this stationary light. I then hiked up the hill and heard a noise of a Cessna that circled my position for ten minutes. I then noticed about 200 Ravens flying overheard. After looking at the photos on the computer my camera captured other aerial anomalies that the naked eye did NOT see. A large silver dome shaped craft over the tree line, near the lake. All this activity might just explain the actions of this circling Cessna. Thanks to Paul Michael Shishis

Mexico - Strange Lightning

PUERTO PENASCO -- It was around 10 PM, on a night with full moon and we saw a large flash of light in the clouds. It was as quick as lightning, which made me think that's what it might be. But it differed from lightning in many ways. First of all, the light changed colors. Sometimes it was purple, red, or orange-ish yellow. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Turkey - UFO Video

ISTANBUL –A 42-year-old and a number of residents claim UFOs were spotted over a four month period between May and September. He said: "I don't know what these things are, we filmed them several times and they are totally unknown to us I was very excited when I saw them and I want the world to know that UFOs do exist." Almost two-and-a-half hours of footage was filmed featuring a variety of objects ranging from incredible flying saucer-type 'craft' on June 8, 2008, to clustering orb-like lights hovering in the night sky.

The clips were handed to the Sirius UFO Space Science Research Centre in Turkey who interviewed witnesses and painstakingly combed through the footage frame by frame. International UFO researcher Haktan Akdogan said: "In this amazing video footage, physical forms of UFOs and their metallic structures are clearly noticeable.

"What is more important is that in the close-up of some footages of the objects, entities in them can be distinctly made out." "We have spoken with all of the witnesses and had detailed analysis conducted on all two-and-a-half hours of footage. "The objects filmed are structured objects and are not the result of misidentification or natural phenomena, aircraft or astronomical objects "After conducting all of the analysis we came to the conclusion that this video footage is 100 per cent genuine. Thanks to the UK Sun News.

UK - Sightings

FILEY -- Kirsty Beever reports, "More spooky goings-on have been spotted over Scarborough's South Bay. John Ottaway, of Beverley, contacted the Evening News after he and his wife witnessed strange lights over the sea and the cliffs towards Filey. He said: "We were walking over the Spa Bridge at about 7.45 PM, on Saturday October 11. There must have been in excess of over 20 lights over the sea, and near the cliffs. At first it looked like hang gliders that were lit up. But most of them flew into the sea and then looked as though they expired. A couple of them went a long way." He said the lights looked like they were coming off the cliff and falling into the sea. His experience follows a series of similar sightings from people around the Scarborough area over the last few months. Russ Kellett, a Filey-based UFO hunter, sent the clips to the Evening News for its website. The first clip was filmed at about 10 PM from Saltersgate, over RAF Fylingdales, and shows two orange balls of light which are very close together. Snip. Thanks to the Evening News

BRINKHILL, LOUTH -- By Gemma Gadd reports, On October 16, 2008, a UFO witness says he is worried about being abducted by aliens after repeatedly seeing triangle-shaped aircraft near his home. Eric Goring, 61, came into the Leader office this week to recount his bizarre experiences after reading our articles on the Louth 'orange lights' UFOs published last month.

He said: "I have been watching these space ships for six weeks now, and saw eight together on September 25 and more again last night. It was really spooky and I can say for sure that any explanation these are just Chinese lanterns is ridiculous." Recounting his latest sighting, he said: "I was outside on my scooter at around 5 AM and watched them until about 6 AM. One came from the front and then others came in from different directions." "They seemed to be lighting the clouds up as they went along and their lights were bright white. There was no noise and they moved slowly, hovering and then shooting off at speed." Mr. Goring described the objects as triangular in shape and lined with lights. He drew these diagrams to illustrate what he saw, explaining: "I estimate they were around 50 feet across in size and sometimes they shone a large searchlight from the bottom."

He added: "I am seeing these ships so regularly now and I think they are here to study the planet." Eric revealed he had a close encounter with one of the objects last month: "I saw one come from the direction of the fields and over a tree. I almost walked right under it as it was just hovering in the air about 200 feet above me. "It wasn't shining its search line down but I didn't want to go too near it as I was worried about radiation." He added: "And I am worried they might beam me up." Describing the objects as appearing like balls of white light when viewed at a distance in the sky, Eric said: "They sometimes look red too and give off a bright flash – like a camera flash." When asked where he thought the UFOs came from, Mr. Goring was adamant they were not terrestrial aircraft: "They were definitely from space and of alien origin. There were no vapor trails and I could see the edges of the crafts and they were triangular."

Mr. Goring said the only other time he had seen a UFO was in 1999 from Alford Road in Brinkhill: "It was a silver ball that appeared to glitter gold; and it moved silently at a speed of around 75mph. But it was nothing in comparison to what I have been seeing recently."

Eric now regularly scans the skies in the early hours of the morning to keep a watch out for the 'space craft': "I am worried about them and feel I have got to go out and keep looking for them now. Somebody has to keep a look out and report these things as we don't know what they are here for. "They were the greatest thing I had ever seen, and if you ever saw them, you would never forget them." He concluded by saying he wasn't sure why aliens would choose to visit the Louth area: "I have seen them shining their searchlight down over the local fields so maybe they are fascinated with them in some way." He added: "Brinkhill is a red hot spot for these ships at the moment."

COOKHAM VILLAGE – This was taken at 8.45 PM, on September 29, 2008, from Strande Park toward the north for thirty minutes. My wife and I saw seven or more strange lights in the sky over the village. The lights appeared to be spheres. There were aircraft in the sky from Heathrow (London Airport), but the lights were totally different.

Comments: In this case the witnesses saw and photographed lights in the sky although the photos have been brightened to better reveal the lights. This means that these photos have been edited and are not directly output from the camera. I have seen many night time photos similar to these photos. In many of these cases the witnesses do not see anything, but discover the orbs (lights) when viewing the photos on their computer. Given this scenario I don't have a good explanation for the lights in the above photos. The photos were taken with Samsung Digimax S500 Kenox digital camera. The maximum resolution of this camera is 5 mega-pixels. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest
