Barrack Obama Wins US Presidency

Around the world throngs packed plazas and pubs to cheer the U.S. election results as liberals, Africans, Hispanics, and Muslims celebrated the change in American leadership. Obama mania was evident in Islamic and African nations where Muslim strategy had strongly supported Obama in the hope that his Arab and Black roots would help seek a compromise. Many Europeans were hoping the election would bring peace. "Muslim Malaysia announced it looks forward to enhanced relations with the U.S."

With the now expected pull out of U.S. troops from Iraq where Radical Muslims have concentrated their bombings, it is likely they will increase their attacks on the U.S. and Europe. Obama's leadership will be critical to the future of the U.S. and the West. and I congratulate Obama on a hard fought excellent campaign. I hope he becomes aware of the UFOs in our skies.

Vatican Gives Nod to ETs

Paola Harris writes, Father Gabriel Funes, the Jesuit priest who directs the Vatican's observatory at Castel Gandolfo near Rome, declared: "As an astronomer, I continue to believe that God is the creator of the Universe. The search for extraterrestrial life does not contradict belief in God." He added that some aliens might even be innocent of original sin. "How can we rule out that life may have developed elsewhere?" Funes said. "Just as we consider earthly creatures as ‘a brother,' and ‘sister,' why should we not talk about an ‘extraterrestrial brother'? It would still be part of creation."

To make this statement even more important, the newspaper Il Osservatore Romano, the official mouthpiece of the Vatican, released the interview. In the article, Funes stated, "Even if we don't currently have any proof, the hypothesis of extraterrestrial life cannot be ruled out. "Just as there are a plethora of creatures on Earth, there could be others, equally intelligent, created by God."

With this statement, Funes echoes the words of Monsignor Corrado Balducci, as the "unofficial" voice of the Vatican. At UFO conferences in Italy, Monsignore Balducci, once Vatican Nuncio to Washington, D.C., stated, "All is possible. God created us to give praise to Him, as I imagine He created others species to do the same. How can God be glorified without a varied creation?" For the past 15 years, I lived in Italy very close to the Vatican, and I often dined with Monsignor Balducci at his home. Balducci, who was also an expert demonologist, wanted to open the door to the Catholic study of ufology. Since he was never hindered in this pursuit by Vatican authorities, he felt they had given him their silent approval. With the proclamation of Father Funes, that approval is no longer silent. I often asked Balducci if he thought that some aliens were demonic. His answer was, "The devil does not need UFOs."

Balducci believes that over the last 150 years, the UFO phenomenon has appeared sequentially and with an increasing and spreading frequency. He made a strong distinction between this phenomemon and manifestations of the paranormal, such as Spiritualism. He believes adamantly there must be creatures between us and the angels on the evolutionary scale. These could be ETs. Humans are at the bottom of the evolutionary ladder because we know the difference between good and evil, and often choose evil.

Monsignor Balducci states, Jesus died for the sins of extraterrestrials as well: "Jesus died for all beings in the cosmos. In the sacred Scriptures, He is called King of the Universe at least 66 times. Never underestimate the great mercy or compassion of God, whose grace and compassion surpass all."

Saturn's Moon Enceladus Probably Has Life

The Cassini probe may have already collected data that could reveal the presence of life on Enceladus Saturn's moon. But mission scientists say teasing out the subtle signature of life may prove difficult. Researchers have been fascinated with Enceladus since when Cassini imaged ice particles and water vapor shooting out from the moon's South Pole in July 2005. The plumes suggest the moon holds an ocean beneath its surface that is a potential habitat for extraterrestrial life.

Our Ancestors Claim UFOs Have Been Seen for Thousands of Years.

UFOs exist and our ancestors have been telling us about them and actually even painting and drawing them since the Stone Age in their Paleolithic art on cliffs and in caves. Their earliest creative art is amazingly accurate and rivals the great European masters. If we visit the Stone Age Caves of France and Spain today we see spectacular paintings of bison, deer, mammoths and bear. There are also painted objects apparently flying above these animals.

I showed my granddaughter the paintings; she can identify each one of the animals and also pointed out the UFOs flying above them. In the parlance of archeologists these flying forms have been given the name tectiforms. There are hundreds of these drawings with disks shining down their lights, and flying triangles and flying wings. A few birds with wings can also be seen. Throughout ancient writings such as Ezekiel's wheel we are told of ancient flying objects such as the "Boat of the Sky."

Above is the Egyptian sun god Ra, whose boat sailed over the heavens and was originally the divine boat of Nu, or Noah. He is always depicted with a disc above his head and often riding in an unidentified flying craft around the Earth each day.

In Roman times many Roman soldiers carried shields that had the likeness of a disk shaped UFO carved on each one. The sky God Mithras was worshipped in Persia and the religion spread to Rome. Mithras was the Mediator between heaven and earth, controlled the rain and also had a flying boat in the sky. The Indian Vedic writings in the Mahabharata tell us that there were gods who could fly.

Nancy Redstar has interviewed the leaders of numerous American Indian tribes in her book "Star Ancestors" and they agree that they were brought here from another planet. Could American Indians often called Redman come from Mars the Red planet?

Ancient India Had Vimanas (UFOs) Spacecraft Technology

TIRUPATI --The Hindu National Press writes that, `India once had a treasure trove of hi-tech warfare technology that even the `mighty West' does not possess. Ancient scriptures reveal, Brahmastra and Vimanas used in the pre-Mahabharata period are nothing but the earlier versions of today's nuclear weapons and spacecraft.' It is this feeling that one would get after listening to a lecture on `High Technology in Ancient Sanskrit Literature' by Mr. C. S. Prabhu, senior scientist, at the Indo-Nepal Sanskrit Conference. Mr. Prabhu, quoting extensively from ancient texts, stressed that the pre-Mahabharata period was an age of high technology with craft described like those pictured below.

Mr. Prabhu said. Sanskrit epics are the flying chariots employed by various gods in the Vedas: such as the Sun chariot and several other Vedic deities are transported by flying wheeled chariots.

India on October 22, 2008, launched its moon rocket called Chandrayaan-1 — which means "Moon Craft" in ancient Sanskrit — from the Sriharikota space center for a mission aimed at laying the groundwork for further Indian space expeditions. A close and careful study of the Vedic literature shows that it was not just a collection of primeval poetry but a varied literature of a powerful and dynamic society where the people had the knowledge of meteorological concepts and the strength of the wind blowing at high speed. The spacecraft could become invisible using the lead alloy Thamogarbha loha. The craft would absorb light around it in a photo chemical reaction that would make it disappear. On testing the metal mentioned in the formula in the laboratory of Birla Institute of Science, Mr. Prabhu found the metal absorbed 78 per cent of laser light, and could easily absorbed, giving ample proof that there existed a technology to make things invisible.

Also the use of an alloy of copper, zinc and lead made the spacecraft's body resist corrosion by 1000 times over that of the current levels. Using Ararakamra material for the axle and wheels it was possible for the craft to make `U' turns and serpentine movements.

As the spacecraft had to be capable of resisting high temperature, on reentering our atmosphere from outer space, the craft was made with a metal called `Raja Loha'. Its special feature was that apart from resisting heat, it converted light from lightning into energy. The solar power, when coupled with gamma rays produced nuclear energy that had the power to propel a rocket', Mr. Prabhu observed.

The Ramayana describes a Vimanas as a double-deck, circular flying cylindrical craft with portholes and a dome. It flew with the speed of the wind and gave forth a melodious sound.

Mr. Prabhu said he had submitted the model and some more information on the `super metal' to the Indian Metal Society Conference and further claimed that the advisor to the government on scientific affairs. He has proposed a project called `Bharadwaja Institute of Vedic Science and Technology', the objective of which was to derive, decipher and reproduce advanced methodologies and processes from Vedic and post-Vedic Sanskrit texts, for which he sought government's support.

Where's the Global Warming? Ireland, US Northeast, and Hawaii hit by early snows

Hilo, Hawaii - Snow fell atop Mauna Kea for the first time this season over the weekend, on the Big Island volcano's 13,796-foot summit. This year's first snowfall came before the arrival of wintry weather, which usually begins around early December. Early snows also hit the US Northeast, last week blanketing Pennsylvania and New England in the last week of October. Signs of Christmas also came early to Northern Ireland in October as parts of the province were covered in snow. The evidence that sunspots on our Sun are directly related to climate change on Earth has been steadily increasing.

The Old Farmer's Almanac predicts cold winter based on regular, cyclical variations in the Sun's energy output. The Sun has been strangely quiet this year and Arctic ice is thicker than its been in years. No sunspots were spotted for over 200 days this year and temperatures appear to be cooling. The Old Farmer's Almanac is going further out on a limb than usual this year, not only forecasting a cooler winter, but looking ahead decades to suggest we are in for global cooling, not warming.

Polar Bear Population Has Increased Dramatically Since 70's

Thanks to the mainstream media, we've all heard about the dire plight of polar bears because of global warming. Here's some statistics which might make you think otherwise. Since the 1970s, while much of the world was warming, polar bear numbers increased dramatically, from roughly 5,000 to 25,000 bears -- a higher polar bear population than has existed at any time in the twentieth century. Thanks to

Editor's Note: I'm a recipient of a nomination to the Who's Who Environmental Registry and believe strongly in protecting our planet. However, a great deal of false information is published and the cause of Global Warming has not been proved.


Arizona - Dark UFOs

I was having coffee while setting on my patio facing north when I noticed odd looking clouds I have never seen before so, I took some photos with my digital camera. As I zoomed in to my surprise and shock I saw gray/silver discs and sphere shape UFOs throughout my photos. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Arkansas - Metallic Cigar

FAYETTEVILLE -- The whole family was outside on the front porch on June 4, 2008, when, my wife noticed an object over my head to the north? I immediately spotted a metallic cigar shaped object hanging vertically in the sky. I went into the house to get the camera and snapped three shots and a three minute video of the object. It was moving slowly and appeared as if it were going to flip to a horizontal position but never achieved it. It was like a swinging pendulum of a clock. The winds were out of the southwest. I speculated the object had something to do with the Fayetteville Walmart Convention taking place 25 miles north of us. We watched it move slowly east until we could not see it anymore. None of the universities in the area knew of any weather experiments taking place that day, nor did the local TV stations. Thanks to MUFON CMS

FAULKNER – On October 26, 2008, I looked out my front window and noticed a light blinking white, red, blue, green, and yellow randomly. I telephoned my friend in Little Rock, 30 miles south, because he saw something very strange in Texarkana in January. So we both went outside and watched the light maneuver move around the northwest sky. We could only see it's lights, and no structure was visible. It would move right, while flashing the colors, then back left and down to the right. I then noticed a second smaller light moving north at a steady pace with one blinking red light. The light flew over blinking light, and disappeared! Then blinking light then dimmed and became smaller and winked out. I knew it wasn't a plane, because of its blue lights and maneuvering. Thanks to MUFON CMS

California - Streak

GLENDORA -- I have a new lens for my camera and have been taking pictures of everything in sight when this helicopter came by October 28, 2008, at 11:31 AM. I took a few pictures at 1/750 seconds that almost completely stops the helicopter blades. After looking at my pictures on my computer (only 2-3 minutes later ) I saw this streak that I had not noticed. I used a Canon digital XT w/ Canon EF 100-300 shot at 300mm.

Comments: As the witness stated whatever created this streak must have been moving very fast. Whatever it was would have been moving faster than the helicopter blades. No clouds were in the sky so the streak WAS LIKELY NOT A CLOUD! The comments received from a reader below suggest that the streak could be due to internal reflections in the camera body due to a very bright spot on the photo (reflection of glass on the chopper). Although I don't have extensive knowledge of camera anomalies this explanation seems reasonable. Therefore the streak is probably not a "time exposure" streak from a fast moving object, but due to an anomaly in the photography process.

Reader Comments: One of the most common sources of anomalous lights, streaks, etc. in photos is internal reflections in the camera body. Good cameras are of course designed to avoid them, but they will show up if there is a strong enough light source, that is much brighter than the average in the photo, so that when it's image is reflected multiple times and attenuated by the dark interior surfaces of the camera it still is bright enough to show up against another part of the photo when it finally hits the "film" surface.

There is such an area in this photo, and it roughly matches the size, shape and orientation of the streak, although internal reflections can be distorted and flipped in one or more axes, so there is no need that they do so match. Look at the glassed-in cockpit area of the helicopter. You will see an elongated bright Sun glint there, which I believe is what may have caused the streak. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

Florida - White Sphere at Airshow

JACKSONVILLE -- My wife and I went to see the Blue Angels air show at 1 PM on October 26, 2008, at NAS Jacksonville where we arrived just in-time to video a F-18 flying overhead. As it zoomed past us it turned on its burners and went straight up. Once it reached its peak height, it rolled over and headed descended. As it's came down a white UFO came across at a diagonal to the upper left portion of the screen. This is a still frame of the object. It looks as though the object is pulsing as it comes across. It's hard to tell but it seems to fade and then come back brightly. In the short span of the video, it does this four times. When viewing the video at normal speed, the object is traveling so fast that it makes the jet look like it's standing still. The skies were crystal clear that day. Does anyone know what this might be? Thanks to MUFON CMS

Georgia - Red Moving Disc

I looked out my back window to see a red moving disc with rotating white and silver. It went behind trees and I lost it on October 29, 2008. I was unable to sleep on both nights. Everyone in the house was asleep, except my cats. It moved from west to east, near Pleasantdale Road. It was not a plane, there was no sound. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Illinois - Disc

ROSCOE -- I walked out of my house to the corner to wait for my daughter at 2:30 AM, I looked up and saw a disk shaped object high in the sky on September 25, 2008.. I watched it as it was very metallic looking. It wasn't there but 30 seconds and then just gone. There was just a slight trail after the disk took off. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Indiana - Flying Triangle

INDIANAPOLIS – I live near Beech Grove and came home a little after 1AM, and saw two bright white/orange lights off to the northwest. I stopped and watched the lights for several minutes. They were moving very slowly, but heading towards me. I kept my eyes on them, and they moved ever so slowly closer. They were almost overhead maybe 2,000 feet in the air. When the first one passed, I saw a large orange oval light on the bottom, with six round white lights in the middle, and a smaller red light on each side. Three white lights were on the tail "wing" of the craft. It was emitting two orange contrails, about the length of the craft that could not be missed, they were very luminescent.

After the first two crafts passed, I looked back to the north, and I saw another emerge above the trees, and as it passed without sound, another one came into view. All of them were following the exact same path, like planes in a flight pattern near an airport, and all of them looked identical. I've never seen a plane with so many lights on the bottom. It was not a conventional aircraft. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Massachusetts - Disk

WILLBRAHAM --We live in a rural part of Western Mass and it was my husband who first noticed a light in our bedroom which awaken him. After looking around in our room for what could be causing the light, he then noticed it was coming from outside.

He awakened me and we watched the bluish/greenish lights on a disk shaped object with occasional red lights for 2 hours. We have watched it for over a week now. Each night it is farther away and always starts out really high in the sky and then around 4:20 AM it will drop right around the tree line and appears to hover for about an hour like it is doing a survey. Like I said, each night it is farther and farther away so by now we can only watch with binoculars but we are still fascinated. My mother is now here to visit and she has seen it, also. When it gets closer to daylight it almost disappears into thin air. I am now a believer. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

New Mexico - Four Lights Moving in Unison

LAS VEGAS -- On early Tuesday morning September 30, 2008, a very dark, clear, and cool night I was driving west on NM state road 120. Near mile marker 31 I stopped and parked facing west next to a white gate on the south side of the road. Immediately after putting the vehicle in park I looked out my front passenger side window facing north and watched 4 lights in a diamond shape configuration moving south in unison then change direction traveling east. I noticed the time was 1:25 AM. They were solid white amber lights facing down toward the ground. The lights did not blink or flash or change color. I stepped outside of my vehicle and watched the lights with a pair of binoculars and did not notice anything different as for changing colors or flashing lights. I kept watching with and without binoculars as it traveled in an easterly direction. Then, as I looked again for it with my binoculars I noticed a bright flash of white light thru the binoculars.

I was unable to keep track of these lights because they flew behind the horizon of a hill. My friend observed the lights in motion and the sudden bright flash of white light. I am very familiar with aircraft and the night sky. It was different and certainly something I had never witnessed before. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

New Jersey - Huge Bright Flying Saucer

HILLSBOROUGH -- About 8:47 PM my daughter and I were driving home, when we spotted a very large, very bright, saucer shaped object in the sky on September 20, 2008. It had bright red lights around the perimeter that were blinking on and off in succession. The disc-shaped object was so bright, it appeared to glow. Far off in another direction, we saw a helicopter, and by comparison, the size of this unknown craft was at least ten times bigger. We followed it by car, as it moved just over the tree tops in our view. It flew on an even plane, at a speed that seemed faster than a blimp, but slower than an airplane. We watched it for about ten minutes. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

New York - Boomerang and Cylinder

POUGHKEEPSIE – On October 26, 2008, the object was in front of me over the trees, and then sped over the neighbor's house. It was dark outside and I was getting ready to get into the car when I saw stationary bright lights over the trees then they sped away. Thanks to MUFON CMS

STATEN ISLAND -- UFO was spotted on September 19, 2008, at 8 PM near Newark Airport while driving westbound on I 278 near the Goethals Bridge. Once we got on the bridge, my passenger and I had a clear view of the brightly illuminated. Object a few thousand feet high located between Bayonne and Elizabeth, NJ. The triangular pattern of its three blinking red lights made me suspicious that it may be a jet liner heading for Newark Airport, but it looked nothing like the many other planes in the sky and was not on the normal approach pattern to the airport.

The object, when first viewed, appeared to be saucer shaped, with a raised flat top. As we moved further along the bridge, the craft appeared to elongate into a cylindrical shape. The craft, in addition to the lights, had a strange whitish blue hue to it that illuminated its body and made it stand out against the night sky. We lost sight of the craft soon after we exited the bridge. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Pennsylvania - Frequent Sightings

COGAN STATION – I saw white lights with red laser line flashing between them as they flew low just above the tree line. They seemed to multiply when two and three would suddenly appear out of nowhere. They crisscrossed and circled around each other then proceeded straight out of sight at a high rate of speed encircling normal planes... Once overhead they appeared triangular in shape, although the outline of the craft was faintly seen.. When one would rise/descend behind the tree lines three or four more would suddenly appear from nowhere, fly toward the tree lines, then take off...

At one point, a tiny version of the big/little dipper appeared above the trees. Very bright, like a tear in the middle, and these craft appeared to be coming out of that. Larger than normal white flickering lights have been all around the small valley of Quiggleville for months. The sound of electricity was faintly heard every three minutes when they were popping out. This went on for an hour...Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Texas - Four Lights

HAMILTON COUNTY -- I talked to both witnesses who were driving north on Highway 281 near Hamilton Airport on October 23, 2008, about 9:15 PM when they noticed four large orange lights. Each light was about 50% the size of a full moon. The lights were at high angle, but then all blinked out and then reappeared at a lower angle and blinked out but only one light reappeared at a lower angle. This light then gradually dimmed and disappeared. The lights were seen to the northwest and no sound was heard.

Comments: Several sightings of similar lights (object) were seen in this area of Texas on October 23 and again on October 25. The identity of these sightings is unexplained. Apparently the military was conducting exercises in the nearby Brownfield Operation Area on the evening of October 23. This investigation is in progress. Updates will be posted. Thanks to William Puckett.

LEXINGTON -- These pictures are from the evening of Monday, October 27, 2008, The light in the middle is the house light. The other light starts out above it and ends out to the right. It eventually disappeared into the trees. On Saturday and Sunday instead of disappearing into the trees it flew over our house. It flew over the house Saturday with lights on and Sunday with lights off. Friday, October 24 is when we saw about six lights out front.

Comments: It has been difficult to obtain more information from the witness who took the video and photos. It is not known for sure if the video was taken on Friday, October 24 or Monday. The photos apparently were taken on October 27. The witness stated that the light in the middle was the "house light." In the video only one light is visible until the video is brightened. More information needs to be acquired before anything definitive can be said about these sightings. Thanks to William Puckett.

ROANOKE -- This picture was taken in my pasture about two weeks ago of a black circle about 15 feet across. My husband got up at 3 AM, on September 20, 2008 to go to the restroom. He said that it was "real light" out, but he didn't look out. Later it rained two inches and washed the circle away. My husband took some samples right after we first noticed the circle. We first noticed the circle the morning after my husband saw the bright light. The black residue around the circle was "kind of frosted" and glowed somewhat.

Comments: The fact that a black circle appeared right after a bright light was sighted suggests that something may have landed or some type of radiation or heat process burned a circle in the ground. No lightning or thunderstorms were in the area. The samples will be sent to a professional chemist and analyzed. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

Utah - "Silent" Flying Disc and Triangles

BRUCE CANYON – On July 25, 2008 a series of photos were taken above Bruce Canyon of this disc shaped craft. Photo below is enlargement of the above photo.

SYRACUSE -- I was relaxing in my work truck gazing towards the west on October 28, 2008, at 5:55 AM, while I had a few extra moments of downtime. It was a clear and early morning sky near Hill AFB. I often watch for "shooting stars" but instead I saw three white lights that appeared to be part of the same object dart across the sky from north to south. The lights weren't particularly bright, but seemed to create a perfect triangle. The object seemed to be fairly transparent and I was able to see the dark sky behind, only distorted. The more I thought about the brief sighting, the more I realized it was no plane. It was silent and quiet outside.

Comments: Here is another sighting of a "silent" triangular shaped object at night. Certainly if the object was a jet aircraft from nearby Hill Air Force Base (AFB) the witness would have heard something given that he was outside. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

OGDEN -- I didn't actually see the UFO firsthand. My brother is the one who saw it and took the pictures on November 1, 2008, when he was driving down the road at 4:37 PM. He said that it was just hanging in the air and slowly coming down. It was in the shape of a pyramid and colored black. There were other people who had pulled over to look at it as well. He was facing east when he took the pictures.

Comments: The object is not a weather balloon. Photo analysis has also shown that the object was not suspended or attached to any string. Therefore it is not likely a kite. The sighting was close to Hill Air Force Base. This is the third photo that we have received of similar black triangular object. The identity of these objects is not known, but it seems that more daytime sightings are occurring. The photos were taken with a Canon Powershot SD600 digital camera with a maximum resolution of 6 mega-pixels. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

Washington - Green Fireball and Disc

OCEAN SHORES -- Two of us used an IGEN Infrared night viewer that was plugged into a standard camcorder to take infrared videos at 8:52 PM, on October 25 , 2008. The IGEN device was set to 15 frames/second. (Most camcorders are automatically set to 30 frames/second.) One hour of footage was taken and later viewed. Upon viewing we noticed a few flashing lights in the videos and some obvious falling stars (meteors). The most dramatic scene was the bright fireball that rapidly descended. The video clip of the fireball along with a still image is shown above. The green color was due to the setting on the infrared viewer and not the real color of the fireball. The fireball could have been naturally green. The video and image were brightened with a video and photo editor respectively. The spectral sensitivity of the IGEN device is not known, but thought to be between 350 and 1,500 nanometers.

Comments: The fireball is probably a meteor. It is not known if the fireball would have been visible in the visible spectrum because on visible light recording device was included in the video session. The unknown light flash shown in the third image from the top above is probably also a flash due to meteor disintegration, but this is not known for sure. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

GIG HARBOR -- My wife on October 11, 2008, snapped a photo of some family members but they were not looked at until several days later. We zoomed in on the object and could not identify it as a known object. She does not remember seeing any objects in the sky during the actual time of the photo. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Outside USA Reports

Argentina: Alleged UFOs Photographed

ENTRE RIOS – A strange object was photographed between the two crosses on domes of the St. Anthony of Padua Cathedral on October 31, 2008, using a notebook computer with a built-in photo camera in the heart of Plaza 25 de Mayo in Concordia. It was published by the local El Heraldo newspaper. Another photo taken seconds later does not show the object indicating the object was moving at high speed. Both photos show the Cathedral time as 11:45 AM.

PARANA -- A resident photographed his daughter on her 15th birthday near Danza de la Flecha on October 21, 2008, around 5 PM with his digital camera. They were astonished to learn, upon enlarging the image at a photo shop, that they had taken a picture of an unidentified flying object (UFO). PHOTO at, (Translation (c) 2008, S. Corrales, IHU. Special thanks to Planeta UFO)

Australia – Disc Photo

MELBOURNE, VICTORIA -- My wife and I were just unwinding in the Royal Botanical gardens on October 5, 2008, at 5 PM, when my wife noticed something strange in the sky. She told me "this is not a plane" We then took four pictures of the object flying towards southeast Melbourne. What was incredible to our eye was how this object was bright and shiny. It wasn't moving faster than a plane, and it took only a two minutes to appear and disappear from our view. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Canada - Sightings

CALGARY -- On October 26, 2008, using a combination of wavelet extraction/and GIMP software neon edge enhancement views of a UFO are shown. The UFO is shown with edge enhancement and IRIS wavelet detail enhancement which punches through the distortion field to show the true UFO underneath. Thanks to MUFON CMS

SCARBOROUGH -- I live on the 24th floor of an apartment building facing Lake Ontario and on October 18, 2008, at 1 AM, I saw a bright star that was a bright moving 'thing'.. I was excited because I hadn't seen one at a close range before. I realized it was a UFO. It started moving southeast following a local creek. I wanted to take a picture to make sure it wasn't my illusion. As soon as my camera flash went on, the 'UFO' stopped, changed direction, accelerated and moved north and disappeared. The image shows a glowing, shining unusual spot on the sky. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO

UK/England - Sightings

WESTONZOYLAND, SOMERSET -- I was driving along on our right I noticed two red lights about 150 yards away flying parallel to our car. I said to my wife, "What do you think that is?" The object was some 50 yards in front of us and 20 feet above the ground. It rotated and started to spin with no noise showing me its shape (cross) and size about 25 feet in diameter. With that another car was coming from the opposite direction and it zoomed off in seconds and disappeared. Thanks to Director of HBCC UFO Research

TYNE AND WEAR -- On November 1, 2008, at 10:45 AM, I was in the car and saw a streak of light, similar to a bright shooting star that was a streak of light that caught my eye. Then I saw a long sausage shaped flying object about 60 feet long, lined with long windows. It was metallic grey and shiny, and I could almost see through it. It took seconds to shoot right across the sky, unfortunately the trees blocked my vision and it was gone. I've never seen anything like it. Thanks to Director of HBCC UFO Research

UK/Scotland - Triangle

EDINBURGH -- I went outside to look at the constellation of Cassiopeia that I have studied for years and noticed an upside down triangle within it on September 22, 2008, at 8:46 PM.. It was moving very fast north across Cassiopeia, and I could hear no noise. It was very high in the sky, and I can only compare its brightness to the stars. The size appeared huge, as it replicated in size to the two pointer stars of Cassiopeia and moved across the constellation it in seconds. This was no aircraft as far as I'm concerned due to its large size and distance travelled compared to geo-stationary satellites. I consider myself a professional and have a qualification in astronomy and always look for a rational explanation in ambiguous issues, but I cannot explain this sighting. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director
