Space Is a Contested Environment

The military is worried about new threats in space and is now attempting to make its key personnel aware of the threat with a new focus on Space Education: At the 25th National Space Symposium in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Air University officials introduced a new special area of emphasis (SAE) topic called "space as a contested environment" that is being added to US joint military education.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen established this special area of emphasis to highlight "the space domain's emergence as an environment where US superiority has been and will continue to be challenged." The Chairman uses SAEs to bring attention to areas of great importance to the joint military community. Air University officials, along with Air Force Space Command and the National Security Space Institute, spent the past year working with military educators and the Joint Staff to develop the space-focused SAE. The fact that space is a contested domain is not new news as senior Air Force officials have been warning of this for some time now.

Scientists and key military personnel must open their minds to the possibility of the UFO/ET phenomenon and stop prejudging others who are researching this area. This will require each to do their own "research" into the matter. The few military personnel that are aware of the UFO/ET situation should share the reality and their understanding with scientific colleagues to start to bring them up to speed. Academic personnel and scientists should share this knowledge with their students and the public, for it is the next generation of students and graduate students that will help make the breakthroughs in research to explain what has been observed for several generations.

Testimony of Mr. John Maynard, Defense Intelligence Agency (ret.)

While at the DIA, I saw some documents that pertained to extraterrestrials. They were code-worded. A normal person reading it may not catch it ¡ª it would go right on beyond them. These were top secret documents. I imagine most of them are still classified. A lot of them pertained to Salt 1 and Salt 2 ¡ª the strategic arms limitation treaties with Russia.

I also saw pictures of UFOs from ¡ª I believe it was called ¡ª the National Intelligence Photographic Center [NIPC], over on Hayes Street right there in Arlington. Once in a while an anomaly would show up on the pictures that didn¡¯t belong there ¡ª a round object, a triangular object. They were not markings put on the photograph that indicated some place or anything like that. These were above ground. These anomalies came up in certain photographs and things that we received at our office at DIA and, we always thought they were interesting.

You knew that they were not part of something that was placed on the photograph, like a marker. It was not a normal type of object, particularly the oblong ones or the circles or the triangular ones ¡ª the triangles were kind of funny, with a rounded corner on the tail end of it. These were taken most generally with the Talent Keyhole Satellites, and they would show these objects ¡ª these UFOs in them. They would be objects from the TK11, TK12 shots that were taken, that showed the anomalies. Sometimes you could actually track it photograph by photograph as it moved across the [sky] ¡ª you knew that it moved.

I had a rather interesting incident, not in an organization that I belong to as far as the DIA, but it was an office put within my area at DIA. Since it was in my area of security, I received the code name to go in there and to look at the office. It was called Omni Project¡­It dealt with radar satellites. I was talking with one of the sergeants over there in a little show room they had, and I noticed the satellite¡¯s positioning. I said, "Now this is supposed to be a system that tracks radar anomalies on Earth, right?" He says, "Yep, that¡¯s what it does." So I ask, "Then why are half of them pointed towards outer space, towards the moon, towards areas that are just blank space?" I said, "At least half of those satellites that you got up there aren¡¯t looking at Earth ¡ª well what are they looking for?" He says, "Well you got to have a need to know to know about that." I said, "I see, in other words, who¡¯s coming?" And he says, "We don¡¯t know." I just thought it rather odd that they were tracking stuff from outer space.

I also did work with the Camp David accords and assigning the SR-71s, the Blackbird, to map the Sinai, and there were several reports at that particular time that the Blackbird had been accompanied by something that wasn¡¯t from this Earth. The photos of the Sinai would show anomalies that weren¡¯t part of the terrain, weren¡¯t part of the people, weren¡¯t part of the atmosphere. Page 424 "Disclosure Project"

East Coast Flap

Numerous reports were received along the coast of Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina on March 29, and particularly March 30, 2009. The flashing lights and booming sounds that were attributed to a piece of orbiting space junk were not the result of a man-made object, according to the United States Air Force. Stefan Bocchino of the USAF Joint Space Operations Center says the "bright light" seen over parts of the East Coast Sunday night was not a result of a man-made space object. The Joint Space Operations Center tracks more than 19,000 man-made objects in space, but no natural phenomena.

Witnesses described yellow and orange flashes in the sky with booms that prompted calls to 911 and the National Weather Service that stated, "Numerous reports have been called in to this office and into local law enforcement concerning what appeared to be flashes of light in the sky over the Suffolk/Virginia Beach area. We are confident in saying that this was not lightning. So far...we have not seen or heard of any damage and will continue to inquire as to the cause." Thanks to John Schuessler

Editor's Note: The most likely cause were bolides or meteors but often UFOs will choose to enter the atmosphere near these objects to camouflage their entry. Intelligence analyst, Sorcha Faal, reports that multitudes of people from Maryland to North Carolina witnessed a fleet of five UFOs being attacked by a squadron of over 75 US warplanes off the Virginia coast on Sun 29th March resulting in the loss of two US planes. I have no confirmation of this information that is being passed around the internet. The Air Force said these were not man-made objects, perhaps they were alien made? See examples of bolides at

Colonel Jesse A Marcel Jr. (Ret.) wrote:

Hi George: I appreciate the information you send. What was really touching was the reference to God. Since 1947 my feelings for God have been greatly expanded. He is the God of the Universe and we have many brothers in the Cosmos. My experience in Iraq has reinforced this belief. There was a time when a mortar came in and landed just feet away but it did not detonate, you know firsthand how terrible mortars are. They sound like a low flying jet, and I had guys wounded around me but fortunately no fatalities. Other times direct fire from and AK-47 came within inches of sending me home. I thanked God for the extra time He has allowed me to exist on earth. I wonder why, but I will not question. It is a perfect example of why I have a strong faith in God because it is through His Divine Providence that kept me safe. Seeing the Roswell Debris certainly broadened my belief in God and my experiences in Iraq confirmed my belief. Warm Regards, Jess Marcel

First Flight of F-35 Lightning

FORT WORTH The first Marine Joint Strike Fighter developmental test pilot took off from the flight line at the Lockheed Martin Aeronautics plant on March 19, 2009. Major Joseph "O. D." Bachmann became the first Marine to pilot the F-35 Lightning II fighter jet, which is slated to become part of the Corps¡¯ aviation arsenal by 2012. Bachmann said the purpose of the flight was to acquire experience and it was easy to fly. The F-35 is a single-engine, single-pilot, multi-role, stealth-capable aircraft. Lockheed Martin is producing three variants of the aircraft.

US Sightings

Alabama -- Six Spot Triangle Shaped UFO

REHOBETH -- I and several of my friends decided to go out to the high school after hours and lay on the football field on February 9, 2009, when a large object, triangle in shape passed directly over us. There was six of us and none of us have ever seen a plane of that size or shape. It moved fairly slowly east and we watched the object until it was out of sight. The craft was a large triangle with six lights at the larger end of the triangle and one light at the tip of the triangle on the bottom. The Front of the triangle appears to have five lights that strobe from a dim to bright. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Arizona -- Eraser on the End of a Pencil

PHOENIX -- On March 16, 2009 I received a phone call from a nice fellow who asked if I had received any kind of sighting reports for Phoenix. He went on to explain that he observed something he thought to be a bit unusual at 12:50 PM. An object in the shape of an eraser on the end of a pencil flew across the sky for ten minutes. Just before it vanished, the man noticed a fast moving jet aircraft moving in the direction of the object he had been watching. As soon as the jet got close to the unknown it just disappeared. The jet aircraft had a contrail visible, but the object did not. Thanks to Brian Vike - HBCC UFO Research:

California -- Unidentified Flying Object Photo

SAN FRANCISCO -- I was reviewing the photos of my last trip to San Francisco and noticed that a flying object appeared at the left of the City Hall dome.

I had taken a photo 8 seconds before and another 40 seconds later in the same position and the UFO doesn't appear in them. I took these photos using a SONY model DSC-W90. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Florida -- Black Triangle Flying Low

FORT WALTON BEACH -- I walked out back to smoke a cigarette, and watched a plane fly over the Gulf of Mexico heading south and noticed Orion¡¯s Belt and some of the fainter stars. By now my night vision was fairly good and I caught movement out of the corner of my eye, and instinctively ducked. At first, I thought it was a hang-glider that had "sneaked" up on me without any noise. This triangle was darker than the night sky, without lights, and seemed somewhat transparent in that the outside shape was more clearly defined than the middle.

It was black but with the appearance of "transparency" toward the center mass. If I had not been looking south at that part of the sky at that moment, I would have never detected it. It glided overhead, less than 400 feet AGL, and remained in my vision for eight seconds until it dropped behind the trees. It was moving steadily, but not very fast heading due west. I would estimate the width greater than 25 feet. If it maintained its heading for a few more miles, it had to cross Hurlburt Field. (depiction of object) Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Indiana --Triangle

LOOGOOTEE -- At 9 PM, on March 20, 2009, my wife and I were sitting in our hot tub and saw a gaggle of geese coming towards us. I pointed and realized a UFO was flying very fast and straight heading northeast. It flew much faster than jets and flew over our heads and vanished. It was a ¡®V¡¯ formation of about 7 to10 pale orange or yellow triangular shaped lights. If they were separate aircraft they were flying in perfect formation with no noise. We discussed the possibility of a stealth fighter, but this thing was faster than any aircraft I have witnessed. It didn't appear to be that high up in the sky. Thanks to MUFON CMS

CORYDON -- Self and teen were going west on a Harrison County road on March 9, 2009, when we saw three bright white round lights in a triangular shape up ahead. We were actually approaching it fast as if it wasn't moving. We came up to it on Shiloh Road and pulled over to get better look. As we came to a stop it hovered for five seconds longer, than began slowly moving off to the northwest. It was only about 400 feet in altitude and was as long as an airplane in length, but much wider. It had three round large white non-strobing lights. It made a humming/swooshing sound, but nothing like an airplane or jet would make. It sounded like a 'quieter' helicopters. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Illinois Sun and Twelve spheres spotted

OAK FOREST -- I was testing my camera in combination with 15x binoculars fitted with solar filters, and decided to photograph the sun on March 29, 2009, even though there was considerable overcast. I took a number of shots of the solar disk. When I downloaded the images, one of them exhibited an oblong white spot. None of the other photos, all taken within minutes of this one, showed anything unusual. The white spot had dimensionality and upper portion is quite light. The solar filters I was using reduce the incoming sun light by a factor of ten thousand times, if I am not mistaken! The underside of the image is in shadow, and it is also apparent that this object is wingless and seems to be a craft. Thanks to MUFON CMS

SPRINGFIELD -- I was crossing the road to deliver my friend¡¯s clothes on February 2, 2009, at 10:15 PM, and I spotted this egg or sphere shaped craft that was fully visible. I stood there in the middle of the road as the craft moves slowly until out of sight. I was scared because it appeared again. This time it gained in size, only to get smaller and disappear for good. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

CHICAGO -- My fiance' and I saw light colored spheres in the sky above an airplane while driving to a restaurant near O'Hare airport on March 14, 2009, at 3 PM. I pulled over on Oak Park Avenue and took some photos. She counted twelve spheres, which seemed to be very high up. They were all moving northeast individually. My fianc¨¦ says they may be balloons, so I checked and the wind was blowing southwest at the time. These wouldn't be planes because they were too high up. I called the Police and I was embarrassed so I asked them to just let the military know what I saw. The spheres eventually disappeared into the distance. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Maryland -- Square and Round UFO Anomalies Imaged

BALTIMORE -- While taking pictures of a friend by the reservoir on February 9, 2009 at 6:14 PM, nothing flew by us at all, however in my pictures are square and round luminous objects. In one sample these object are together and moving, and in the next image the square object has stopped above us, and the round object is 100 feet above the center of the reservoir. We both would have noticed if something had flown by? However; there are other images at this location which show orange streaks of light flying above the buildings in the distance. I was using a D700 Nikon. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

ODENTON -- On March 21, 2009, at 9:40 PM, we saw a fireball about the size of a baseball/volleyball that was very bright with a green flare trailing behind. It was falling straight down to earth at a very high speed. I was initially expecting detonation of some sort. I drove toward the area I thought the object impacted. I was unable to find it or any signs of where it landed. Thanks to MUFON CMS

New Jersey -- Cylinder and Space Shuttle Shaped Object

LITTLE FALLS -- The object has flown above our house about 8 PM, every night since last Friday. It will probably be there tomorrow night too. It is red white and blue to the naked eye, but the camera did not pick that up on February 20, 2009. We have pictures. I am a Rutgers University graduate and I have studied meteorology and this is not a radiosonde. It is somewhat cylindrical in shape and most unusual. My entire family observes it every evening between 6 and 8 PM, since it appeared five days ago. I personally guarantee that you will be as dumbfounded as we are. This is truly a celestial mystery. I estimate the altitude to be at about 15,000 feet. My interest in this is purely scientific. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

ATLANTIC CITY -- I walked out my front door on January 30, 2009, at 7:20 PM, and noticed a Space-Shuttle shaped flying object that was flying north over the Atlantic Ocean near Absecon Island. The object was flying at incredible speeds and made a loud sound after the UFO was almost out of my sight. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Massachusetts - Several White Objects

WALPOLE -- The witness phoned a few minutes after his sighting on March 25, 2009, at 5:30 PM, and stated that he and his friend viewed several white objects moving in circle at high altitude. There were also regular aircraft in the sky at the time but these were very different and flew in a triangular formation. They apparently stayed in the same area of the sky. They were nearly overhead when at first two or three objects were seen and then up to 20 appeared. Skies were mostly clear at the time and after about 15 to 20 minutes the objects disappeared. Listen to Clip of Witness Interview (MP3)

Note: I quizzed the witness at length about the possibility that the objects could be birds. He was quite convinced that he did not observe birds. Given available data I can't render a guess on the identity of these objects. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

New Hampshire -- Maneuvering Object

LONDONDERRY -- We were coming from Boston on Sunday night, March 22, 2009, at 9:05 PM, and pulled into my driveway and looked up and saw what I assumed was a satellite. They got out of the car and looked up and said where? I couldn't see anything moving, and my son said, "Oh yes there it is!" It was moving slower than a few seconds before. Then it started moving a little faster so you could easily see that it was moving. We watched it for a couple of seconds and I saw it jerk real quickly to the right about an inch and then back. I thought that it was my eyes playing tricks on me so I didn't say anything. My son said, "It moved back and forth real fast didn't it? I said with total surprise you saw that? He said, "Yes it moved." He showed the direction and movement with his hands. We watched it pick up speed moving north and it moved really fast and we lost it in a few seconds.

Note: I really don't know what this family saw. It was not the International Space Station according to satellite charts. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

North Carolina -- Huge Orange Object

RALEIGH -- At about 9:00 PM, on March 30, 2009, I spotted an orange glowing object in my back yard. I grabbed my camera and took these pictures. The object made no sound and seemed to hover for a long time in one place, than it rapidly ascended into the sky. There were a total of four eyewitnesses with me who also observed it. The object appears in the video to be moving around rapidly, that is not the case. I did not have the camera on a tripod and while zoomed in, trying to keep it in the tight shot was difficult. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Ohio -- Shooting Star and Flying Object

FOSTORIA -- George Ritter captured this UFO taking off from behind the barn in this early spring video. His RCA VHS video camera regularly picks up UFOs landing and taking off in this farmer¡¯s field. It is assumed that these craft operate in an underground base since there are numerous underground caverns in the area only thirty miles from the shores of Lake Erie. Thanks to George Ritter

HILLSBORO -- On March 27, 2009, at 11:29 PM, the witness at first thought he saw a shooting star. It was moving so fast and amazing, but then it just stopped. Shooting stars don't do that!

Note: The witness is correct that shooting stars (meteors) don't stop. Assuming that the witness's observations are correct I have no explanation

Pennsylvania --Electrical Blackout Caused by UFO

GREENSBURG -- Tremont Avenue Productions presented a U-tube interview by Philip Haddad of Eric Harris a theater manager talking about his close encounter in September of 1987. UFO witness Eric Harris saw a large object shaped like a cigar settle down behind the mall and Dingles Nightclub next store. Shortly thereafter the electric power went out. The next day West Penn Power Company personnel came to provide power to his theater and found three fuses blown during the power surge. Normally at most, only one fuse would ever blow out. He told the power company employees that he had see an UFO when the trouble occurred. They told him, "The West Penn Power Company Newsletter had warned the crews to be aware that UFOs were stealing electrical power from the company's power lines."

Editors Note ¨-- I would like to hear any stories of the theft of electrical power or blackouts by UFOs. Several reports indicate UFOs are stealing power.

Oregon -- Small Circular Disks Above Freeway

CLACKAMAS COUNTY -- On Monday March 2, 2009, I walked out on my hilltop deck at 4:15 PM, and spotted four silver objects in the sky. They were moving north fast toward Oregon City over the 205 Freeway at 2500 feet. They were flying under some low clouds, moving up and down and weaving in and around each other. I grabbed my Nikon 12 x 50 binoculars and viewed them for thirty seconds. They were round circular flat objects, less than 50 feet in diameter that tapered down from the center to a fine sharp edge. I was not able to see any lights or windows. The discs flew north and disappeared from view in 45 seconds. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Tennessee -- UFO Photo

OLIVER SPRINGS -- On March 21, 2009, at 4:17 PM, while riding in Windrock ATV Park, my girlfriend and I were on top of a good size mountain enjoying the view, when she decided to take a few pictures. When we loaded the pictures on my computer to view them, it was the first thing I noticed in the picture! Neither of us seen it until we actually looked at the pictures! The first picture is the original picture, and is still on my camera. A small portion other two were magnified. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Texas - Semi-Circular UFO

MEDINA LAKE -- On March 25, 2009, about 5:10 PM, my wife, child and I were visiting my Father-in-law at his place near San Antonio. My daughter was on my lap steering a small tractor through dense woods when she pointed at this object directly in front of us about 100 yards away and around 30 feet off the ground. She turned around quickly and hid her eyes on my shoulder. I was extremely nervous that it was so clearly in plain view and that I knew I needed to get pictures.

Not being able to take my eyes off of the object made for fumbling fingers and my daughter was scared to death. By that time the object tilted slightly and the sun light gleamed off of its surface as it disappeared. The craft was semi-circular with mirror type shell with slight protrusions from top center and was 12 to 15 feet side to side and five feet high. I had a slight acidic taste to faint odor and no exhaust trail visible. It had no lights or windows and made no sound. The tractor and cell phone worked fine.

Note: Daytime close encounters with unknown objects are quite uncommon. I spoke to the witness subsequent to his written report. He was quite convinced by what he saw and his daughter was quite frightened and still upset. Apparently the witness did not check to see if the object left any ground traces. The object appeared in a wooded remote area. What more can I say: unidentified!

Virginia -- Multiple Lights Over the Atlantic

FAIRFAX -- I saw a flash of light on March 29, 2009, so I looked out of my back window that gave me an excellent view of a huge white blue sphere of light that flashed and shot backwards away from my area very fast. It again flashed and I saw a smaller sphere move from it, then shortly after was a loud kind of percussion boom. I went outside and felt I was seeing a UFO.

I did not see the sparks or green ball people were describing, but maybe it was just my location. I noticed about 5 minutes or so later up very high in the sky was an object flashing from red to blue to green that moved left and then backwards. It really scared me and my husband came out to see and my Mother drove over to look at it. There were jets flying around up there near the area and then it was gone. There were sirens with emergency folks looking for a crash site. Not everyone saw the big moon like sphere that people in my area did. I have read that now the Naval Observatory is calling it space junk. But as for me, I thought it was a UFO.

CHESAPEAKE -- My wife said, "She heard a loud, rumbling boom and saw a sparkling multi-colored fireball and bright flash of light about 9:45 PM, Sunday March 30, 2009. As it turns out, the sound was heard across several states, and several witnesses in the Hampton Roads area have come forward with their descriptions of what they encountered. It has been reported on several of the local news channels. The metrological folks reported no unusual weather or meteors in the area. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Wisconsin -- Air Force Story

MADISON -- My friend has worked for the Air Force for twenty years and we met his retired working buddy at a nearby restaurant. I joking asked are there UFO's the old man got quiet, and looked at me and stated, "No one will believe you anyway so, I¡¯ll tell you I¡¯ve seen them and a grey." He talked about a piece of metal he personally held that was like tin foil thickness and when you crushed it, the tin foil returned back to it normal shape.

This man eyes never left mine, he spoke straight out not thinking just spoke. I was numb and freaked out... I asked about Area 51, and he wouldn¡¯t admit to it and also changed the story very quick. He assured me, "All the things we have now came from them, and we still don¡¯t know everything yet." Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Sightings Outside the United States

Argentina -- Disc Shaped Light

PLAYA GARIPE -- The owner of a bakery, Marcelo Clavero had his camera with him when he saw the very powerful haloes of light made by an object in the sky in two separate instances. At 10:30 PM on Sunday, February 24, 2009, he was fishing with his wife, son and brother. As they put their fishing lines into the sea Marcelo saw an intense light. Later in the process of cooking a barbecue, the same powerful beam of light appeared again, that they felt was some kind of unidentified flying object. He asked his wife to take a photo, that shows Marcelo¡¯s back looking at the sky, and a brilliant spot light. When held close to the observers the photo transforms into a sort of a disk that stands out over the stars. It is possible to see green, blue and red colors in the alleged object. (Translation (c) 2009, S. Corrales, IHU. Special thanks to Grupo G.A.B.I.E.)

Australia -- UFO Photo

PERTH -- Mary Rodwell writes, "I was down visiting south of Perth, in Western Australia at a small beach town called Yallingup, on March 15, 2009, about 3 PM afternoon, when a friend took this pic of me.

When downloaded we saw two anomalous objects both to the right and left of my profile. These objects were not seen at the time. It still fascinates me that often they will not been seen or recognized by the naked eye but will be in the photo. It could be quite likely that both objects came out of the ocean given what this friend experienced at Yallingup. Australian Close Encounter Resource Network (ACERN) Thanks to Mary Rodwell¡¡

Canada -- Sightings

Paul Shishis writes, these photos caught my eye taken over hydro electric lines, and I thought it was worthy of posting for all to see. Since Marie's pictures of taken in June 2006, she followed her investigation in trying to understand more about these objects appearing on pictures that you don't see on naked eyes. She went on taking many pictures. She realized in her pictures that objects happen to appear more often on sunset and near the electric lines. She takes care to well identify birds or planes not to mix these with unidentified objects. This picture was taken August 28, at 7:43:50 pm by the Des Prairies River, on the Island of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Picture is taken with Canon PowerShot A510. Speed : 1/200. You can see numerous UFOs and other anomalies her website:

QUALICUM BEACH, VANCOUVER ISLAND -- I have been watching the skies along the waterfront for twelve years and have videotaped many UFOs. Mother ships especially and not without their offshoots lined up in a pattern blinking to one another. We've seen large bright "stars" underneath solid cloud cover. Light's brightening intensely, then closing down, and opening up to varying levels again. The most shocking was when I pointed a star out to my Mom who had no belief in UFO's, that moved clear across the sky. Yesterday my son saw four ships above Lasquitie Island at 4 AM. A large ship with all its lights passed extremely low over my house at 4 AM. Thanks to Brian Vike - HBCC UFO Research:

Ireland -- Bright Lights

KENMARE, COUNTY KERRY -- We saw two seemingly stationary, very bright lights in the sky, below the cloud cover. One of the lights moved away at high speed. Much too fast for a helicopter, too low and too fast, with the wrong movement for airplane. The Sun newspaper of March 15, 2009, has reports of sightings in recent days from around the country. There is nothing really to describe as the object only appeared on jpeg image on download. Thanks to UFOINFO -

Jamaica - UFO Photo

KINGSTON -- Walking north for exercise up a city road on March 26, 2009, at 6:10 AM, we stopped to take photographs 500 feet higher than the city. On downloading into a pc, we saw what appeared to be a small disc-shaped object in the upper right hand quadrant of one of the five images we took. It is exactly in front of the Olympus FE 115 digital camera that has a small infra-red focuser beam which would have been pointing directly at the object. I would appreciate some information on what your team thinks this object might be. Thanks to Dr. Karl Aiken.

Netherlands -- Photo

AMSTERDAM -- I was in the bus about 8 PM, looking out of the window on March 21, 2009, when suddenly I've noticed something in the sky. It was too big for the bird and it didn't move so I decided to take a few photos. It was in the evening, the sky was perfectly still. My first thought was that it could of been a plane or a bird but it wasn't. The object in the sky didn't move. I was extremely impressed and excited to see it. I was a little shocked. As I drove on, I lost the sight of the object. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Panama -- Cruise Ship in Pacific Ocean

PACIFIC OCEAN -- We were at sea at 11 PM, on the British P&O Oceana Cruise ship on February 14 2009, off the coast of Panama and noticed a zigzagging light travelling upwards like a Z and then zoomed very very fast in a straight line across the sky a very small light that darted upwards from the right then left then right again and then zoomed very fast straight across the back of the ship. This lasted about ten seconds and can only be described as writing in the sky with a laser light a Z shape upwards. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Philippines -- Circle

MANILA -- At first I thought It was a shooting star on March 14, 2009, at 11:30 PM, but it stopped suddenly in the middle of its travel over Malacanang Palace. I saw its round shape then suddenly it made an awkward u-turn then zoom. It was kind of space warp like in the movies. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

UK -- Disc and Lights

BLACKPOOL -- Driving uphill towards the sea at the rear of Norbreck Castle at 6 PM, in early evening on January 16, 2009, my passenger saw a UFO. We both observed the orange glowing rounded disc, flying slowly parallel with the road. This craft was flying at 200 feet altitude with a short but vivid green flame trail behind it. The object suddenly accelerated at tremendous speed and disappeared heading towards the sea. Friends travelling in another car, a short distance behind us also saw it. None of us have witnessed anything like this before and we were all completely sober.

SOUTHAMPTON -- I had been to see my Mother in the hospital and was walking back to my car on March 21, 2009, when I saw a dim light coming in from the southwest with a string of lights moving the length of it. The UFO was at least 150 feet long and made no noise. The string of lights went out and a lights came on at both ends.. It shot off in a 45 degree angle. Thanks to MUFON CMS

LIVERPOOL -- On the February 10, 2009, I was on my way to a friend¡¯s house in city center at 8 PM, and I noticed a formation of four bright lights up in the clear sky. I stopped my jeep on the dark lane and got a good look at the objects. They were round with an orange glow the size of a five pence coin at arm¡¯s length and 2000 feet high. The speed was about the speed of a slow airship and there was no noise coming from them. I viewed them for seven minutes at a 45 degree angle.

Northern Ireland -- Mach 3+ Oval Depiction

LISBURN -- On February 14, 2009, my two sons and I were gardening a 11:10 AM, when my eldest son aged 7 pointed up and asked me what make of aircraft it was? It looked like an Airbus A321. He then asked why it was dragging a hot air balloon behind it? I looked up again and noticed a small black oval, possibly 20 meters long and 10-15 meters wide which I would estimate was 1200 meters behind the aircraft. For almost a minute the black oval maintained the speed and distance from the Airbus, but it finally 'peeled off' at a speed of which I have never witnessed.

I myself am a former Royal Naval Engineer and was designated to HMS Invincible (1993-1999). During this period I witnessed many military aircraft travelling at speeds in excess of Mach 1.8, usually at military exercises. If I compare the speed of the black oval to military aircraft I have worked with before, I would say it was accelerated from 400+ mph to Mach 3.5 in one second. As you can imagine, at this speed the oval quickly vanished from site SW toward Banbridge. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director
