Mars – Structures and Possible Cities

Norman Bryden writes, "NASA spends twenty billion dollars a year for exploration yet they still claim there is no life on Mars. There is still time for NASA management to change. Many from NASA have already changed for the better by disclosing sightings. It's a slow process. Here is a new image with tubes that are quite large and could easily accommodate two lanes of traffic. They are around the size of Earth's highway systems, and even a bit larger according to the scales provided with the NASA image. A common mistake by some people is to look at these tubes and assume they are cracks and fissures which may be why so many missed the large congregations of these structures, but the key giveaway is at various locations where clear bridges with added structures similar to buildings are visible.

The tubes go around different styles of buildings, and are as wide as the buildings themselves, being even larger at times. It takes a little patience to follow along closely, but the buildings are there with the tubes around them, which pretty much confirms that all the markings are likely travelways of some sort. Many geometrical formations within such close proximity to each other seem far too complex to be random occurrences. They definitely look intelligently constructed, and are clearly three-dimensional and not flat. More recent objects in geological history tend to not be covered with debris from the sands of time. Standing objects wear down and topple over long periods of time.

Editors Note: On the Earth, large lava tubes exist on the flanks of Mount St. Helens, in Washington, Oregon, Hawaii and Iceland. Many lava flows on Earth and Mars have the same characteristics. The main difference is a matter of scale: The Martian features dramatically dwarf their Earth-based counterparts. St. Helens lava tube called Ape Cave traverses a total of 3,904 meters, (12,810 ft.). In many places within the tube, the ceiling is over 7 meters tall, and the cave resembles a subway tunnel in places with its smooth, symmetrical meanderings. The tubes on Mars are longer and larger.

These tubes are articulated with somewhat regular supporting arch structures. These arch structures appear to remain vertical even as these tubes themselves "plunge" into the Rift Valley, thereby serving as a counter to gravity for support and demonstrating that the arches are not simply perpendicular to the tube trend direction, but rather structurally orientated to support the "Tube" itself. I spoke to a scientist at JPL and he explained the tubes were actually sand dunes that often form in valleys. I explained I flew over Saudi Arabian sand dunes at low level for three months and these do not look similar.

There are several tubes joining together to form the "rift valley" there is a smaller tube which is clearly severed, the hollow void can be seen at the truncated end of the tube.(to the right of the word Tube) Also the stained vent shows not only a slanted bottom and void on the side of the tube, but also shows light entering the open vent area from the tube region.

The image above was taken by the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on board ESA's Mars Express, and shows volcanic lava tubes of Pavonis Mons volcano. These tubes of lava generally flow downhill as the volcano rises in height and are very different from the other tubes imaged above.

The tubes above turn in all directions and appear to cross over and sometimes meet at cross roads. Some tubes that go across country to other parts of Mars are even larger and many appear to be made of glass. Conversely, lava tubes are like elongated caves formed by flows of highly fluid lava--a "river" of molten rock flowing from an eruption source, either volcano or fissure. Often as the flow progresses, the tops and sides solidify. If the flow source stops, the remaining lava may pour out, leaving a hollow "tube" of rock. Not all lava flows produce tubes. Sometimes the flow sides form large "levees" as the sides harden, and the top remains liquid.

A fissure is a natural junction or line of separation within a single intact mass of stone. A fissure is not a defect, it is formed when two separate flows of liquid hot magma merge into a single mass. These large white lines are not typical of fissures that are often seen in granite or other geological formations around volcanoes. Some of these lines appear to be supported by bridge like structures and appear enclosed. Thanks to Norman Bryden

UFOs spotted 'by hundreds' at wind turbine site

LOUTH, LINCOLNSHIRE -- The damaged wind turbine, with one of its blades ripped off, in Conisholme, Lincolnshire on January 4, 2009. So far, so mysterious, except - of course - to the UFO experts. For them, the strange goings on at a wind farm in Conisholme, Lincolnshire, can be explained by a flying saucer crashing into the turbine in a close encounter that could, at last, provide the evidence of other life forms they have been waiting for all their lives. John Harrison, of nearby Saltfleetby, saw the ball of light and its 'tentacles' over the farm. 'It was an incredible sight, I have never seen anything like it before,' he said. 'I have no idea what it was.'

UFOs have allegedly been seen by hundreds of witnesses close to the wind turbine that many suspect was hit by an alien spaceship.

By Chris Irvine

Residents claimed to have seen bright flashing spheres in the skies near where a 290 feet turbine with 60 foot blades was found ripped off. Another had been left twisted and mangled in a mystery collision. Some witnesses have said an octopus-shaped UFO was seen flying through the air hours before the turbine was destroyed.

One woman said she saw an object fly towards the wind farm, while others described the lights as being linked by "tentacles", leading locals to dub it the octopus UFO. Ray Stanford, a scientific researcher feels this tentacle-like effect is "most often and readily visible when a craft is either slowing down or moving very slowly over an uneven surface."The "tentacle" appearance of the UFO may have been "constantly changing, torque-generating plasma beams" related to their propulsion system, it is a pulsating magnetoplasmadynamic field, visible due to light-emitting plasma or ions in the air contouring the object's magnetic field."

Dorothy Willows, who lives a mile and a half from the crash site, said: "The lights were moving across the sky towards the wind farm. Then I saw a low flying object. It was skimming across the sky towards the turbines" Eric Goring, 61, told The Sun that he has had so many sightings that he began thinking aliens were trying to abduct him. Speaking of one encounter in September, he said: "I saw one come from the fields. I almost walked under it as it was just hovering 200 feet above me. I didn't want to go too near it as I was worried they might beam me up." A Ministry of Defence insider said: "We have to log all reports of UFOs.

Ministry of Defence insiders have reportedly said the UFOs could be unmanned stealth bombers on test flights. The black delta-wing craft, called Taranis, is understood to have been making test runs on the coastal bombing ranges at Donna Nook and North Coates, which are right next to the site of the wrecked wind turbine. Whatever hit the reinforced blades would certainly have been damaged. Taranis is about the same size as the Hawk jet trainers used by the Red Arrows at nearby RAF Scrampton. But in virtually all the cases there is a simple explanation - and test flights are a common one." [Covert Military Craft destroying a windmill as target practice? Is that what he's trying to say? Is that what happened at Bristol Airport, as well as Chicago? More mundane theories for the cause of the damage – from a block of frozen urine dropped by a passing plane, to simple mechanical failure - have been suggested, but none has yet proved conclusive. They never except eyewitness descriptions-like the 10,000 people in Arizona in 1997. Other explanations for the incident include vandalism from teenagers, a spy plane, or fireworks from a local's birthday party. Police claim something hit the turbine and the missing blade is nowhere to be found. The Taranis, named after the Celtic god of thunder, and is equipped with stealth equipment and an 'autonomous' artificial intelligence system.

Government officials claim the Taranis was making test flights near to the area where a wind turbine was destroyed. The plane is being developed by BAE Systems and has been designed to deliver weapons to battlefields in other continents.

The UFO was spotted by hundreds of witnesses with many believing it was the work of an 'alien' craft. One saw orangey-yellow spheres skimming across the sky. Another reported a 'massive ball of light' with 'tentacles going right down to the ground'. John Harrison, a resident of nearby Saltfleetby, said he looked out of his window on Saturday night to see "a massive ball of light," and "tentacles going right down to the ground" over the site. "It was huge" he said "At first I thought it must have been a hole where the moon was shining through but then I saw the tentacles – it looked just like an octopus. "It was an incredible site; I have never seen anything like it before. I have no idea what it was, all I can say is what I saw". Dozens of red and orange balls of light have been reported from all over the United Kingdom in the last several weeks.

Officials are remaining tight-lipped about the cause of the damage. A spokesman from Ecotricity said, "This has never happened before so we really have no idea what might have gone wrong. We will conduct a thorough inspection of the turbines to see if there is a problem and put it right."Damage to wind turbines, although rare, is more common than many would anticipate. This link provides dramatic footage of a wind turbine appearing to spin wildly out of control before shattering and falling to the ground.

The energy firm Ecotricity which owns the 20-turbine site says it has no explanation, and a UFO may be the best guess. New generation wind turbine designs are pushing power generation from the single megawatt range to upwards of 10 megawatts. The common trend of these larger capacity designs are larger and larger turbine blades. Covering a larger area effectively increases the tip-speed ratio of a turbine at a given wind speed, thus increasing the energy extraction capability of a turbine system.

Current production wind turbine blades are manufactured as large as 80 meters in diameter. In 2001, an estimated 50 million kilograms of fiberglass laminate were used in wind turbine blades. New materials and manufacturing methods provide the opportunity to improve wind turbine efficiency by allowing for larger, stronger blades. One of the most important goals when designing larger blade systems is to keep blade weight under control. Since gravity scales as the cube of the turbine radius, loading due to gravity becomes a constraining design factor for systems with larger blades.]Current manufacturing methods for blades in the 40 to 50 meter range involve various proven fiberglass composite fabrication techniques. Manufactures such as Nordex and GE Wind use a hand lay-up, open-mold, wet process for blade manufactures. GCube, which insures more than 25,000 wind turbines worldwide, said that although it is unusual, this type of incident happens about five or six times a year.

As for the damaged wind turbine at the centre of the Lincolnshire UFO mystery, Lesley Whittingham tried to photograph the scene. 'It looked like a giant explosion in the air,' she said. Dorothy Willows saw orangey yellow spheres. Her husband Stephen was woken by a sudden noise hours later on Sunday morning when the damage to the turbines happened. Could that have been the sound of a UFO hitting it? Council chief Robert Palmer said he had seen a 'round object with a slight red trim hovering near the top of the turbines' that night too. 'When I heard what had happened I was slightly worried so I've called for a full health and safety review,' said Mr. Palmer, 66. 'If the aliens are coming, I want to be there to meet and greet them.' Dale Vince, founder of the renewable energy development company, said on the BBC's Today program that, whatever hit the Lincolnshire wind turbine blades was "probably the size and weight of a cow."Another, perhaps, more likely theory is that material fatigue in the blades caused the failure, with perhaps one blade falling off and denting the other. But Ecotricity's Vince said they have no reason to believe that the failure was fatigue-related. For that to have happened, Vince said the turbine would have had to suffered a "catastrophic failure."Ecotricity engineers continue to investigate the broken turbine. But for now, says Vince, "The UFO theory, kind of like, funny as it may sound, is the best one we've currently got. There is no evidence of a collision. It was 2C on Sunday night and ice could have formed on the blade or been dropped from a plane. The wind farm builder Ecotricity has ruled this out.


California – Sightings

SAN DIEGO -- On January 2, 2009, I saw three red lights moving across the roof of my neighbor's house in a straight line, blinking in order. I went in to get my camera and took a few shots but they came out blurry. I tried with flash and without just in case. I also tried to take a video. While I was taking these pictures, I also noticed that there was no sound. The object moved around the sky over the neighbors house, past there tree, then down the street. But started to work its way back over the neighbor's house again. The lights never changed colors, just stayed red similar to the Oregon Light later in these files. Thanks to MUFON CMS

SANTA CLARITA -- My girlfriend and I were leaving her house in my convertible just after 8 PM, at Woodlake Avenue and the smell of smoke was heavy in the air. I noticed an unusually large object in the north east sky that caught my attention. I pointed it out to my girlfriend and she asked what it was, I replied, "Looks like a friggin' UFO to me babe!" It was an enormous V shaped craft lazily headed due north. It's lack of forward speed suggested a lighter than air vehicle that had to be several hundreds of feet across MINIMUM! There were numerous red lights visible from the lower rear three quarters degree view we had, so we were at its "8 o clock low" from its vantage. There was a reddish glow emanating or reflecting off of the bottom, almost a shimmering, with some intricate fine detail barely visible underneath through the reddish glow I first attributed to reflection from the nearby forest fire. There were no visible means of propulsion evident. I cannot stress the lumbering slow movement of this object away from us and when it passed behind a neighbor's leafless tree. I quickly sped out of the driveway to gain a better view but in less than 5 seconds, it was gone! It just vanished! My girlfriend remembers being very aware of numerous aircraft in the sky, as there is always in the vicinity of the Van Nuys airport. I did make a crude animated .gif file the very next day to try and record the event to the best of my and my girlfriends' recollection. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Illinois - Odd Shaped Aircraft

PEORIA -- I saw this craft in the air over downtown on December 28, 2008, at 1 PM, moving from southwest to northeast in a straight line. It must have been a half-mile in altitude and never changed direction. It was moving very slowly, as if simply being blown by the wind and it made me think it was a balloon for a long time, albeit a very large and strangely shaped balloon. It was shaped like a parenthesis (with the arched part up and was dark gray. I would estimate its length at 30 feet and its height 5 feet. I was really amazed that I could see it for so long and I even saw it through binoculars but am still uncertain as to what it was if not a UFO. It eventually drifted over the river and out of sight. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Iowa - Florescent Green Light

MARSHALTOWN – On January 2, 2009, at 7:25 PM, between town and the airport (but I know for certain that it wasn't any lights from the airport) a florescent green light flew over the highway from east to west faster than any regular aircraft. We only saw it for about 10 seconds, and then it vanished. Three witnesses spotted an incredibly bright and shocking, it's hard to say, but I think diamond shaped. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Kansas – Disk

OLATHE --At 2:20 PM, on December 30, 2008, I was in my car on the 119th overpass above I-35, and I was waiting for the stoplight and opened the sunroof and saw a UFO moving east. It seemed to slow down and then moved in the direction of the arrow again. It had three connected saucer shapes with one double in size at 12:00 on a clock. The 2nd saucer shape was at 3:00 and the 3rd saucer shape was at 5:00 and they were connected with connectors that where half the width of a saucer. The first one was connected coming out at 5:00 and connecting to the second one at 10:00 and 2nd one coming out at 7:00 and connected to the 3rd one at 12:00. I knew immediately that it was an alien craft of some sort for it was not emitting an exhaust like from a jet and because of the way it looked. It was about half of an inch long at arm's length. Then it disappeared and I was yelling, this is awesome! Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

New Jersey – Unidentified Flying Objects Spotted

HACKENSACK -- On January 2, 2009, at 8:00 PM, my fiancée and I were driving home when we both saw a "shooting star" except that it was traveling much slower. Its speed still far exceeded that of any jet, but was present for 4 - 5 seconds. Light was being emitted from around its sides and there was a darker shape in the center so it looked quite man-made. The object's path was parabolic heading downwards and towards the east and New York City. The object traveled in a single direction that seemed to head down and east simultaneously. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

MORRISTOWN -- As an amateur astronomer of nearly 20 years experience, this is the second time I have seen something in the sky that is difficult to explain. At 8:30 PM, on January 5, 2009, my neighbor called my attention to an equilateral triangle composed of six red lights. The lights shone at approximately -2.5 magnitude and covered an area of roughly 9 square degrees in the sky. Three lights marked each of the triangle's corners, and three others were arranged outside around them, forming a larger triangle, equal in proportion and orientation to the inner one. Through binoculars, the formation had shifted to an irregular lambda shape of five or six lights when I came back outside. Through the binoculars, the lights appeared as tiny points against a backdrop of clouds illuminated by nearby Morristown. They were clearly below the cloud deck compared to airplanes elsewhere in the sky at the time, and appeared to be separate objects in no way connected by a larger structure.

They moved steadily in ascending, lateral, and descending directions in a manner that seemed to display deliberate coordination, but there was no noticeable sound of aircraft. I returned inside again and readied my digital camera after waking my fiancé. By the time I started collecting video; the visible lights had been reduced to three or four and had moved to approximately 130° (SE) by 20° elevation and the formation covered less than the area of the full moon. By this time, eight minutes had passed from when I originally observed the lights. My fiancé and I watched them, with two of my neighbors, as they hung low in the southeast sky, flickering in a tiny triangle. They shifted into a straight line before the individual lights began to rapidly descend beyond tree line one by one. I have attached two AVI files enhanced to show lower light. Thanks to MUFON Thanks to MUFON Thanks to MUFON CMS.

MORRISTOWN -- "We didn't really know what they were on January 5, 2009. "They were bright, red lights," Whippany resident Paul Hurley, a pilot who works at nearby Morristown Airport, told MyFoxNY TV. "They were just kind of floating along."What Hurley, his family and dozens of others in Morris County saw were five flickering red lights, one as a pair and the other as a trio, moving across the sky? "I've been in the aviation industry about 20 years, so I knew they weren't airplanes," added Hurley, who captured video footage of the strange lights. "It was unsettling for sure," his wife Cindy Hurley told WCBS-TV. "It was something you've never seen before, and a very strange pattern." The authorities, however, have a pretty good idea of what the UFOs might have been. "We are reasonably certain, from what we were able to observe," Morristown Police Lt. James Cullen told the Bergen Record, "that they were red flares attached to a balloon.",2933,477448,00.html

MORRISTOWN – On January 5, 2009, driving home near Interstate 287 northbound, I pulled over to watch the lights. Lights lasted about 15-20 minutes then shot off into distance. Short video taken with camera. Both myself and the passenger experienced awe as we watched. Neither of us has seen anything remotely close to this before. The lights must have been visible for miles. Lights changed in pattern and shape throughout the 20 minutes or so. Kristen Winslet is investigation for NJ MUFON

SHAMONG – On January 4, 2008, by a luminous object in the air an object hovered while fighter jets where inbound, the object held its position only after I heard the reports from the jets. The object rose slightly and then vanished. Thanks to MUFON CMS

ATLANTIC CITY – F-16s flew over the witnesses house at 4:10 AM, on January 13, 2009, seeming to chase a low flying bright yellow light over the Brigantine beach then heading out over the Atlantic Ocean. The light appeared over the Atlantic City inlet. It disappeared when the planes started banking towards the light. The witness also saw a flying triangle over the Northfield area on Friday night, January 9, 2009. Thanks to the National UFO

North Carolina - Disk

ASHEBORO -- As I was in the car on December 29, 2008, and saw a white object in the sky which wasn't moving, just hovering there at 4:30 PM. It had distinct sharp ends on each side, and looked as it if might have been a disc, but from the angle it was at I couldn't tell.

The driver and I passed by a cluster of trees which blocked it from sight, and when we were clear of them the object was gone. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Oregon – Red Light

PORTLAND –On January 10. 2009, at 10 PM, my girlfriend called me outside to see an orange flickering light, about the size of a dime at arm's length. It seemed highly out of place, as I could see airplanes about five miles away over the airport. The object floated for about 30 seconds, heading south (against the wind). It would stop for a minute or so, and then move in the same direction. Total duration of the sighting lasted about three minutes. I figured it was a lantern of some sort, as it was flickering like a candle. I ran inside the house to grab the camera, and took a photo. Then the light just went out completely. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Pennsylvania – UFO Disc Photo

PITTSBURGH -- On December 23, 2008, I took our dog out and happened to look up and saw a silent weird circular formation of stars. As I watched, I realized it was one big object and there were smaller light blue lights 200 feet in diameter on the object's periphery slowly revolving around a bigger light blue light in the center flying 1300 feet in air. I ran in the house, grabbed my digital Canon Powershot S-50 5.0 megapixel camera, and took a quick picture. The UFO disappeared straight up in the sky at an unbelievable speed to the northwest. Thanks to MUFON Thanks to MUFON CMS

Tennessee - Very Fast, Silent Cylinder

JACKSON -- At 3:45 AM, on December 30, 2008, I witnessed a cylinder flying long ways, not straight along its axis with "swirling" red lights on its ends that swooped through my field of view. It was less than a half-mile away and was very fast yet silent. Planes were also coming in and out of Memphis. I could see its outline and could tell it was under control of something flying with a purpose. It seemed to make a sloping turn and flew behind a tree in my backyard and did not emerge on the other side. I saw something that I could not explain as any sort of conventional aircraft. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Texas – Saturn Like Object Photographed

My wife and I were at the park. The wind was high and we were walking the dogs and I decided to take some pictures. In the first picture you can see the object. The next picture was taken just a second later as I moved the camera only slightly to take another picture. The object did not appear in the second shot. We did not see or hear anything. Thanks to MUFON Thanks to MUFON CMS

AUSTIN -- I saw a bright round light on the horizon on a clear and starry night on January 8, 2009, 9 to 10 PM. This light was six times as bright as the brightest star that didn't appear to move. No other stars compared remotely to this bright ball of light. There seemed to be small blue lights on either side so I called my husband out to witness it and bring the camera. I attempted to take a picture, which is blurred. Ten minutes had passed since I first saw it, and it was still motionless and silent for 15 minutes. It changed shapes, to a five point star. I had to go to my young daughter inside and I was gone for 30 minutes. When I returned it to was gone. Note: Venus was very bright low on the horizon at 9 PM CST in Austin. Venus had a very bright radiance (magnitude -4.5). The streaking in the photo was likely due to camera movement. A Nikon Coolpix S550 digital camera was used to take the photo. The camera has a maximum resolution of 10 megapixels.

Virginia - Object Changes Color

JAMES CITY COUNTY WILLIAMSBURG -- On January 1, 2009 , at 9:30 - 10:30 PM, I noticed what looked like a low fling plane about southwest. As I watched I could see it was going away not to us. I called my son 14 and he said the same thing then after about 3 or 4 mins. it would change color blue and green and back to white. By this time it looked to have stopped moving. My wife was outside by now. I got my camera and took 3 pics on a tripod and they came out like I was moving around, like glowing worms. Then it started moving lower in the sky until it was gone? Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Washington DC - Cylindrical Objects

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- I was one of thousands of people who saw these objects. A friend and I were just outside the Foggy Bottom Metro station at 1:15 AM, on January 1, 2000, heading home after the "America's Millennium" celebration on the National Mall. I saw six to nine objects moving in a WNW to ESE at high speed with no sound.

They all appeared identical, except the first two since one was oddly-shaped. I saw some that were more spread out and another couple that were very close together. They were cylinder shaped (not cigar shaped) and had very odd looking orange or amber glow in a pattern like mortar between bricks. A man and his wife ten minutes earlier saw even more objects, including a very small triangular craft that appeared to be performing stunts. He says that 2 helicopters approached the area, and they scattered at blinding speed, only to return just as rapidly. I think these little triangles probably came out of the larger cylinders.

Note: The witness has produced a lengthy presentation regarding his sighting. The illustrations are very artistic. I have no explanation for what was seen based on his report. Anyone who was at this celebration and saw these objects is urged to file a report. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

Worldwide Reports Outside USA

Australia - Round Bright Light

ILLUKA, PERTH --, January 1, 2009 , about 11 PM, my Sister her husband and I were in a spa pool looking at the night sky when from the South straight above us appeared a big bright white light moving North, it was about 4 time bigger then the brightest star and had no flashing lights at all, like there would be on an aeroplane, only one bright light, it travelled North and half way across our visible sky area just faded into a orange trail for a small distance then disappeared before us, it did via a slight right towards the end before disappearing. There was no sound at all with this object. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Canada - Video

CALGARY, AB -- There is a mixture of UFO fleets and single UFOs recorded in near infrared over a two hour period on January 3, 2009. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Canary Islands, Tenerife - Triangle of Lights

LOS CRISTIANOS -- On December 12, 2008, at 11:57 PM, Triangle of lights flying silent, faster than an helicopter for a duration of one minute. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Indonesia –Flying Triangle Investigation

Reviewing pictures from a group trip to Indonesia, I saw the object in the attached photo taken on December 4, 2008, at 11:15 AM.

I do not think anyone saw the object as no one said anything. I am in awe after discovering this. Thanks to MUFON Thanks to MUFON CMS

India – Flying Object

KOLKATA -- I was flying from Assam to Kolkata on December 9, 2008, flying at 20,000 feet on a heading of 280 degrees almost due west when I saw an object coming towards our aircraft at 8:48 PM. It reversed course and was going backward. It was light reddish orange in color. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Israel/Gaza – UFO in Video of Fighting

GAZA CITY -- I think I saw a UFO on German Krone TV video! Watch this news-video and from 12 to 14 seconds in the video there is a UFO in right upper corner above a helicopter! The text under the video states: In Khan Younis, Beit Lahiya and also in Gaza city buildings of the Hamas were bombarded again. In the morning Israel suspended then the attacks again for three hours. What do you think about that? Thanks to MUFON CMS

Mexico – Flying Triangle

MEXICALI, BAJA CALIFORNIA -- I went outside at 10:25 PM, on December 19, 2008, and looked up to see three shining lights similar to sparkling prism forming a triangular shape. It was either one unit or maybe three airborne crafts in a tight triangular navigation formation zooming from the US border 1/2 mile bound south in a straight path. At first, it looked like some kind of helicopter, but then gained tremendous altitude, as well as the speed. We are not far from the Naval blue angels air station at not more than 30 miles from Mexicali. Definitely not a familiar aircraft, since it went out of sight disappearing at an incredible speed. All this took place in only about a minute. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Philippines - Circular Yellowish in Color

CEBU CITY – On January 1, 2009, my wife and I, with our 1.7 year old daughter were about to enter our house when we saw a yellowish circle shape like an umbrella flying overhead. Its speed was 10km/h flying from Busay Mountain passing over Cebu City. It looked like a firecracker or a crashing plane. The tail was burning as it passes us until we could not see it anymore. It is like a lamp, with a shield with gasses surrounding the inner light. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

UK/England - Numerous Red and Orange Lights Reported Nightly

ORFORD WARRINGTON CHESHIRE -- On January 2, 2009, at 8:50 PM, I had just gone into the garden when I saw a round yellow/white light with red streamers on the top coming towards me for about two minutes when I was joined by my wife who saw it too. It was very much larger than the main light on a nearby aircraft, which fly over here all the time. The light was very intense but was constant, not pulsating. It changed direction at this point and headed over towards Newton-le Willows. As we watched, it got smaller and smaller and disappeared before it would have done if it was travelling like any known craft. At all times it's speed remained constant and it maintained level flight for the duration of our sighting which lasted four minutes. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

WICKFORD, ESSEX -- On January 3, 2009, at 6.40 PM, I went outside to put something in the bin and when I looked up I saw a ball of light flying across the sky. The ball had a yellow centre and a red outline - like a ball of flame. The ball moved across the sky over our house very slowly and then disappeared. I looked back in the direction it came from and saw another appear, so I ran in and called my husband to look. My husband phoned his Dad and I phoned my Mum and they both saw the last one (they both live over a mile from us). Before the last one disappeared,I saw it divide in two, my father-in-law saw the same. My Mum thought it divided into three. All four objects moved silently and very slowly. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

THE new HQ for British alien investigators has moved to the Royal Air Force.

UFO HQ ... RAF HIGH WYCOMBE -- Since the beginning of January all UFO sightings have been handled at RAF High Wycombe, a move welcomed by extra-terrestrial experts who described it as "significant". The base has replaced the former home of UFO researchers, at the Ministry of Defence in London. Nick Pope who spent three years at the MoD as official UFO investigator said he thought the change of location would mean more investigations were launched into sightings and each would be handled with more thoroughness. He said: "The RAF will ensure sightings are investigated properly and should pay particular attention to sightings from pilots and cases where UFOs are tracked on radar." Sightings The Ministry of Defence insisted there was no change to policy. A spokesman for the MoD said: "The MoD examines UFO reports solely to establish whether UK airspace may have been compromised by hostile or unauthorized military activity. Unless there is evidence of a potential threat, there is no attempt to identify the nature of each sighting reported."

Also significant is that Air Chief Marshal Chris Moran takes command on April 3, 2009. Moran commanded the Harrier squadron in the Harrier Operational Conversion Unit at RAF Wittering He was Equerry to HRH The Duke of Edinburgh who has great interest in UFOs. He was promoted Air Marshal and became Deputy Commander Allied Joint Force Command Brunssum in May 2007. It was announced that Air Marshal Moran will become Commander-in-Chief Royal Air Force Air Command on 3 April 2009, and was pointed Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath (KCB) in the 2009 New Year.

UK/Scotland - Six Moving Bright Orange Lights

UDDINGSTON, Lanarkshire -- On Christmas Eve about 8pm I was driving with my 21 year old daughter and we saw two bright orange lights in the sky quite high up but moving slowly in a south east direction. They were quite far apart but travelling at the same speed in the same direction keeping the same distance. I stopped the car and both of us leaned out the windows to listen for the engines, but only silence. Then three more in a triangular formation followed at the same speed in the same direction. They were spaced out but a definite triangle. The orange circular lights all looked the same. We were freaked out - then a larger orange light appeared following the other 5. They seemed to be going higher as they moved away. At first we thought it was aircraft, but was cutting through the flight path to Glasgow airport in the opposite direction. They all moved at a steady speed always keeping formation. The silence was creepy. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director /
