George Filer:
See all the photos at:

Dedicated to 5 year old Georgie Filer V whose motto was “Be Happy” and Eddie Pedrick my grandsons who drowned.

In Special Reports this week's files cover: Colonel Charles Halt says, “The UFOs I saw were structured machines,” NASA may have found original Apollo 11 videotapes, and Lakes on Mars.

Unidentified Aerial Phenomena were spotted over: Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and West Virginia. UFOs were also seen in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Costa Rica, Egypt, Guam, Panama, the UK/ England and Zaire.

The purpose of these files is to report weekly the UFO eyewitness and photo/video evidence that occurs on a daily basis around the world and in space. These Files assume that extraterrestrial intelligent life not only exists, but my hypothesis is that the over a thousand UFOs reported each month represent technologically advanced spacecraft conducting surveillance of Earth. I personally became interested in UFOs when I ordered to intercept one over England when flying for the US Air Force. The US Air Force under Project Blue Book investigated UFOs for more than twenty years, we continue this research. I believe the God of the universe has spread life throughout the cosmos and UFO's are visiting us in ever increasing numbers. MUFON received 445 sighting reports in June of 2009.

Special Reports

Colonel Charles Halt (Ret) “The UFOs I Saw Were Structured Machines”

Gary Heseltine writes, “I wish to announce that for the last 19 months I have been writing a feature length film script in collaboration with Colonel Charles Halt (Ret) based on the events that occurred during the Christmas period 1980 at the United States Air Force twin base complex of RAF BENTWATERS and WOODBRIDGE where he served as the Deputy Base Commander. Our collaboration began in December 2007 after a chance meeting while working on a documentary about those events that have become collectively known as ‘the Rendlesham Forest incident' and regarded by many as the most important UFO case since the Roswell incident in 1947.

Initially I spent four months reviewing all the known material before approaching the Colonel with a long list of questions about his involvement and his thoughts about what happened to some of the witnesses afterwards. I believe the resultant script contains the most accurate timeline yet produced and Colonel Halt fully endorses its content that is based on his personal involvement in the proceedings, the known events involving other witnesses and on his genuine belief that several of the military witnesses were the victims of psychological manipulation after their respective sightings. The script will leave no-one in doubt as to the merits of those events that occurred over several nights in December 1980.

Colonel Halt states, “I wish to make it perfectly clear that the UFOs I saw were structured machines moving under intelligent control and operating beyond the realm of anything I have ever seen before or since. I believe the objects that I saw at close quarter were extraterrestrial in origin and that the security services of both the United States and England were and have been complicit in trying to subvert the significance of what occurred at Rendlesham by use of well practiced methods of disinformation. I believe Gary's script will lift a veil of secrecy about what really happened at Rendlesham, events that were and still are of tremendous defense significance to the United Kingdom and indeed the rest of the world.” The Colonel and I invite interested film parties to contact us for further information.

Just in time for the 40th anniversary of the first moon landing, NASA may have found the long-lost original Apollo 11 videotapes.

If true, as Britain's Sunday Express reports, the high-quality tapes may give us a whole new view of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin's lunar strolls. Back on July 20, 1969, the raw video feed from the moon was beamed to the Parkes Observatory radio telescope in Australia, and then compressed and sent to Mission Control in Houston. Because of technical issues, NASA's images couldn't be fed directly to the TV networks. Instead, the grayish, blotchy images Americans saw on their TV sets were the result of a regular TV camera pointed at the huge wall monitor in Houston — a copy of a copy, in effect. Those images survive, and anyone can see them on YouTube. But the original, sharp, black-and-white tapes that were recorded at Parkes vanished.

NASA had thought they'd been shipped to the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., But a search there a couple of years ago turned up nothing. Around the same time, though, tapes containing data from moon-surface experiments was discovered in a university basement in Perth, Australia, on the other side of the country from Parkes. According to the Sunday Express, NASA has combed through those tapes and found the original Apollo 11 video footage."We're talking about the same tapes," an unnamed NASA spokesman told the newspaper."'s requests for comments from NASA were not immediately returned. Thanks to the Sunday Express.

Mars Lake Picture: First Proof of Ancient Shores Found

The first-ever shoreline discovered on Mars would be a prime place to try and dig up proof of past microbial life on the red planet, researchers have announced. The newfound shore (seen as it would have looked filled with water in an artist's rendering) lies along what was once a body of water about the size of North America's Lake Champlain said the University of Colorado at Boulder team that spotted the feature. Although most ancient deltas on Mars have been badly eroded by winds, the new lakeshores have been sheltered within a valley just north of the equator called Shalbatana Vallis. Planetary geologist and lead author Gaetano Di Achille said he and his colleagues first spotted hints of the ancient lake in 2007 in sediment data from European Space Agency's Infrared Imaging Surveyor. Now the scientists say they have "unambiguous evidence" of the well-maintained shoreline, thanks to high-resolution pictures of the region from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The now dry lake is thought to be just three billion years old—which would mean the region was watery 300 million years after Mars's warm, wet period is thought to have ended, the team says. (Related: "NASA Images Add a Billion Years to Mars's Wet Period?") Despite the lake's scientific attractiveness, it might be a while before robotic probes can make the trek. "It wouldn't be that easy to land in the lake," Di Achille said. But "in the future, it will definitely be one of the best places for looking at the presence of life." Findings appear online in the journal Geophysical Research Letters. —Anne Minard

Water on Mars?: There is evidence of waterborne sediments being carried down from high ground and deposited in low-lying alluvial fans. The discovery increases the chances of life existing on the planet in the recent past, or even surviving today. Scientists have identified fan-like gullies inside a crater that appear to be younger than 1.25 million years old. They believe the channels must have been sculpted by surface water from melting ice. There is evidence of waterborne sediments being carried down from high ground and deposited in low-lying alluvial fans. Professor James Head, from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, who with colleagues reported on the discovery in the journal Geology, said: "We think there was recent water on Mars. This is a big step in the direction to proving that." The gully system is in Promethal Terra, an area of cratered highlands south of the Martian equator. A powerful camera on the American space agency Nasa's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft was able to distinguish four individual lobes of deposited material in the fan system.

Sightings in the United States

Arizona Light and UFO Photo

NEEDLES CALIF -- On June 18, 2009, about 12:20 AM, my husband went out doors to water the lawn and then asked me to witness a round ball of light in the night sky. It pulsed every so often and at times it moved, but then move back to its original position which was about at 20 degrees to the S.E. in Mohave Valley, Arizona. There was in fact at about that location a teaming up of Neptune and Jupiter, but I doubt that they would leave trails behind them when they move. We have been seeing anomalies in the sky for a few months, and been told they are weather balloons. To the lower right of each photograph you will see a very large tree, lit from a ground porch light. The object flew and changed position and I do not believe it was planets which are very easy to spot. In retrospect I have re-examined the day time shots do not believe they are weather balloons, especially at night. Thanks to MUFON CMS

SEDONA -- We were on vacation traveling on Bell Rock Trail and took several pictures on June 24, 2009. The photo shows two possible UFOs near Courthouse Butte. I did not observe any objects in the sky since my concentration was on the beautiful rock formations. When we stopped at a hotel later that evening we downloaded our photos to a laptop computer. On the larger screen, I noticed two dark marks in the sky above Courthouse Butte. Since my daughter loves hawks, and we saw quite a few on the trip, I joked to my son-in-law Bill, "Let's magnify these two hawks for Sandra". When we did, it appeared to be two UFOs; the left one silver colored and the right one darker. When magnified, each appeared to have a different color directly around it. They did not look like birds or planes. We then searched about 10 other pictures looking for other "black marks" in the sky. That is when we discovered the dark mark above Bell Rock (P6240088). We magnified this one and it looks similar to the one appearing on the right above Courthouse Butte. The pictures were taken about 10 seconds apart, so if it was the same object, it was traveling fast from my right to left. We looked at the photos Bill took with a different camera, but he had less sky visible in most of his, and no black mark were found. My reaction was WOW! The camera is an Olympus SP-320, 7.1 Megapixel, with 3X optical zoom. Thanks to MUFON CMS

California Sighting

LAWRENCE LIVERMORE LABS – On June 27, 2009, at 2:06 AM. a Group investigating called Shannon McCabe's HPI (Haunted and Paranormal Investigations International) were at the Carnegie SVRA State Vehicular Recreation Area observing the Lawrence Livermore Labs. Present were lead Ufologist: Paul Dale Roberts, and Ufologists Tim Dennehy, Renee Martine, Monique Dannille Apodaca, Chantal Apodaca, Laura Miller, Tammy Straling, Sadie Bowman, Vanessa Kalinowski, Ocita the Chijuajua, Luke the Chihuahua/Dachshund, Karen Mace, and David Mace. Renee Martine (Intuitive) and two other intuitives reported seeing three stars aligned in a right degree angle. The star in the middle seemed to wobble, split into two stars and finally vanished. Other witnesses were Laura Miller and Monique Apodoca. Note: The three using intuitive abilities were attempting to communicate with extraterrestials.

Tammy Straling while observing the night sky at 3:01 am saw a darting star object that moved in an erratic pattern. Possible witness: Paul Dale Roberts. My eyes could have been playing tricks on me. Observing the night skies on a continuous basis causes mis-sight and misjudgment. While observing with binoculars, it appeared to be a fast moving star like UFO that darts straight, hard left angle and straight again. Many conventional aircraft and satellites were observed. Observations lasted through the entire evening. Photographic or video was not obtained. Light/laser signaling produced no results. Psychic telepathy communication inconclusive. Sightings by investigators are inconclusive. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Colorado Bright Light

DENVER -- I was leaving work about 3:45 AM, on June 22, 2009, and noticed a very bright light low in the sky to the east. At first I thought it was a police helicopter, but as I began to drive in that direction home I could tell that the light was further to the east than I thought. When I got home I went out to my balcony and took these photographs and video.

The light didn't move from its position for over two hours until just as the sun was coming up. It then slowly moved up and to the south which negates the possibility of the light being a celestial body of some sort.

There is a military base to the east of Denver, and the Denver Airport is out in that direction as well so the light couldn't have gone unnoticed. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Georgia Photo of Light

LOCUST GROVE – On June 30, 2009, I woke up at 4:30 am, noticed an abnormal stationary light. Knowing there was no towers nearby I went outside with camera to investigate. There was no noise, thus it wasn't a helicopter. Took 3 pictures, and before I could take more, the brand new batteries in camera went dead. I watched for ten minutes and it just disappeared. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Illinois White UFO Filmed

GALESBURG – I was wrapping-up some work on my computer at about 5:20 AM on June 20, 2009, when the morning twilight began to filter through the windows. It being my birthday, so I decided to go outside to observe the dawn and noticed a very bright object about 30 degrees above the horizon moving towards me. It was a cluster of lights travelling northwest in formation. The cluster did not resemble an airplane. Instead, it seemed to be composed of several individual elements of various sizes arranged in a "double-cross" or diamond-like pattern. The lights scintillated like the sun which was just about to rise was reflecting off the object.

I realized I was seeing a UFO and raced inside and grabbed my video camera. Forty seconds later, the object had moved overhead along a smooth trajectory. I began filming the object. The video clearly shows a bright object moving in the sky, but the fine structure of the formation was not clearly captured by the camera. I shot video for two minutes as the object receded into the northwestern sky. When it was passing overhead and to the north, the formation appeared to be a cluster of lights in a triangular arrangement. It made no sound at all and flew about the same height as a passenger jet at cruising altitude. The experience left me excited and a bit flabbergasted. I was disappointed the shape of the object was not clear. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Maryland Disk with Rim of Red Lights

BOWIE -- We started driving up the street from our home on June 3, 2009, at 9:20 PM, and saw an oval disk shape object beaded with red lights around its rim. It was stationary and about 45 seconds later the lights began to dim until they were out. The disk then hovered down below the line of trees. It was cool. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Michigan 3 White Lights Seen Streaking Object Size of 2 Footballs Light

BROWNSTOWN -- On June 19, 2009, at 4:30 AM, while lying in bed in a suburb of Detroit, I saw a small white light zigzagging in an irregular pattern. I got out of bed and went outside and saw a red light high up in the sky that was too high see clearly. Seconds later, I spotted three little white lights shoot out of the red light at extremely high speed. I ran inside my house to go get my Dad. By the time he came out the sky became overcast and he wasn't able to see anything. I sat up for awhile and watched sky lighting up with tons of lightning bolts.

Note: I am not sure what the witness saw. Apparently there were thunderstorms in the area, but it is not known if the sighting was weather related. Another "nocturnal lights" report on June 19 came from southern Michigan. However, the time of this second sighting is unknown. Click here to get a list of Michigan sightings.

BURR OAK – On June 19, 2009, I saw the backside of a craft that had four white lights and was about the size of two footballs across. It was heading south of Burr Oak, in South Central Michigan towards Indiana. The sky lit up like a lightning bolt and it was at the Indiana line in a few seconds. I have never seen anything like it. I was in the Marine Corps and have been around a lot of aircraft. This was way too big for conventional aircraft. Plus it did not make a sound.

Note: I don't know the weather conditions at the location of the sighting given that the witness did not report the time of sighting. (I have requested this information.) Outside of possible meteorological causation (e.g. ball lightning) I have no explanation. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

Minnesota Light Show

GLENWOOD – There was an interesting light show during a storm on June 18, 2009. A series of lights were coming from west and going east.

First photo shows them starting to come in. Second shows them closer up. Third even closer.

Final shows the cloud after it passed over. Possible ‘rod' type item appearing as well. Thanks to the Reverend Cindy Lou Schmidt

Nevada Slim Pyramid Triangle and Floating Object

HENDERSON -- My family and I were out back swimming on June 3, 2009, at 9:20 PM, when we all saw a big black silent very tall and slim pyramid triangle shaped object. The back of the triangle was tapered off to a point heading south. It was three sided, 150 yards long, silent, and oscillating. A second later we saw military jets following this craft in formation flying the same speed, and making allot of noise. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

LAS VEGAS – While eating dinner on our backyard patio on June 7, 2009, at 7:50 PM, my girlfriend was stretching and looking up and pointed to the sky and asked "What is that?" My friend and I saw a round object floating very high below the cloud level. I grabbed some binoculars and focused and saw the front of the object was red, while the rest was either silver or white. I passed the binoculars to my girlfriend and she saw it. She gave to our friend who thought it "barrel-rolling." I got the binoculars back and the object was all black in the distance. We were asking each other "What was that?" Then I pointed out two F-15's chasing the object, followed by an F-16 and two more F-15's. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

New Jersey Investigations

SALEM Nuclear PLANT UPDATE – On April 17, 2009, a UFO was observed not far from the plant above its electrical power transmission lines. Investigation has determined that two towns near the UFO sighting location had electrical blackouts about the same time as the sighting. Thanks to Bill Levine

CHATHAM – I awoke at 1:30 AM, and looked out toward the western sky on June 2, 2009, and saw a large reddish-golden orb hovering above the trees. Initially, I thought the object was the moon, but upon returning to the window several moments later it was gone. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

ATLANTIC CITY – Louis Cataldi writes, “On June 30, 2009, I was crabbing when I saw the silver cigar shaped object at 3:54 pm, to the southwest behind the Ventnor Water Tower. I was by the water wall at 123 Kingston Avenue and saw it about three miles away. The object disappeared from view after 30 seconds in cloudy sky with a bright sun shining through. I am sending this report from my cell phone as I do not have a home pc. Thanks to Louis Cataldi

PLEASANTVILLE – I am 22 years old and very smart, so I will try my best to make this report brief. On June 29, 2009, at 4:40 AM, I was about to fall asleep sleep when I noticed an unusually bright star outside my window. I realized that the star's light wasn't staying the same, it was changing brightness, getting brighter, then dimmer. I noticed a blinking light on the left side and a brighter blinking light on the right. I looked around and saw a real star in the background. I knew that the one blinking light on the left was far too dim to identify as a plane. The blinking light on the right was not set to a perfect sequence or timing. It came off and on, but again, much too slow to identify it as some type of human aircraft. The object had several random tiny specks of light blinking all around it. I watched the hovering object until 5:20 AM, as the night became day and the star-like object disappeared. I completely ruled out a helicopter, plane, flare, star, or satellite since the object was hovering several centimeters horizontally and vertically and not stationary. This object was hovering at a very high altitude for over 30 minutes before disappearing.

The UFO I had seen last summer was also a star-like object, but shot off at incredible speed. The other was a Black Triangle that I saw three years ago between March-April about 9:30 PM. It had no visible lights and was flying low under the clouds with complete silence. I had a feeling that it was a foreign object not from this world. Thanks to MUFON CMS

New York Small UFO sighting at Yankee Stadium in daylight.

NEW YORK CITY -- I was at the Yankee vs. Rangers Baseball game on June 2, 2009, at 7:30 PM, sitting in the second row upper deck of section 420c with a friend. I took my eye off the batter to look up at an overhead plane, and noticed a small object only about 30 feet away over the field. The item was charcoal gray, probably metallic, and in the shape of a toaster. It was only about one foot in size. It spun around in circles, but always remained parallel to the ground, and had something similar to a reflector light on a bicycle in the upper right corner, which shined like a dimmed light. It also had a small amount of haze over it. I saw the object directly in front of me as it flew in over third base and continued its path over to the first base side of the stadium, and accelerating until out of view. It couldn't have been a balloon, because it was not going in the exact same direction in the wind, nor was it rising at a fast pace or going straight up. It was too small and too far away to get a good shot with my cell phone camera. However, my friend who I was at the game with saw it, and as many as 1,000 other people sitting in the vicinity could have potentially seen it. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Ohio Large Silver Bullet

JOHNSTOWN -- On June 22, 2009, at 4:41 PM, I was sitting on my patio with my wife and her sister when I noticed a large bullet shaped object flying from the SW about a mile high. I told my wife and her sister to look up and see it. The object then continued to fly over to where we were and over the house. We heard no sound. The object did not have wings or any windows that were visible or lights. It was not a blimp or any other aircraft I have ever seen. It continued flying in a straight path toward the NE until out of our sight which lasted about one minute. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Tennessee Kentucky Border UFO Photograph

DALE HOLLOW LAKE -- I was on vacation when took this picture on June 23 2009, at 7:47 pm on my cell phone on the Tennessee Kentucky Border from the top of our houseboat. I didn't look at the picture until the next day when I discovered a flying saucer in front of the sun.

From the shows I've seen, UFOs fly so fast through vortexes that the human eye can rarely see them, however pictures can capture them. I did not see the flying saucer with my bare eyes, or maybe I did but my eyes didn't register it. I would like to know your opinions about this and if there are any other sightings in this area. It is also important to note that there is a military presence in the area. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Texas Cigar Shaped Object

SAN ANTONIO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT -- The morning of June 4, 2009 at 10:12 am, I was traveling south on Burger Road when I noticed a strange object over the San Antonio Airport. It was a cigar shaped craft about the size of a Cessna flying east following the landing pattern, but not descending. It was a very slow moving object and I watched it turn 90 degrees and head south. I was looking at the rear end with a circular shape and no wings. The object then seemed to vanish or just kind of de-materialized. The sky was clear with no haze. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

AUSTIN -- On June 24, 2009, I was at home making sure my doors were locked when I noticed a bright object in the sky because it was the only thing that stood out. There were no stars out that night. It looked different, not a plane, a star, or helicopter. I decided to grab my digital camera to take pictures and video. The object appeared to be rotating, moving very rapidly left to right, then up and down. I was scared since my husband was not at home. I got tired of watching it after an hour and started watching TV since I couldn't go back to sleep. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Washington DC Photograph

DISTRICT of COLUMBIA -- My wife and I went to Washington D.C. for vacation and on May 30, 2009, and took this picture of the statue of Andrew Jackson. Later, I was showing the picture to a friend and we noticed an odd object above the statue that we were unable to identify.

It resembles a classic UFO shape. I don't know what it is and would appreciate any feedback you can give me. Thanks to MUFON CMS

West Virginia Blinking Lights Flying Over My House

GRAFTON -- On June 1, 2009, at 7:30 PM, I once again saw something strange while watching the sky from my back deck. I was looking for the lights that I saw on previous nights, when something red caught my eye. I watched a craft or light of some sort about the size of a kitchen table appear over the top of the tree. It had a circular shape, with several very bright red, gold and white blinking lights. Several were blinking at the same time in a mostly red triangular fashion. The craft drifted silently at a medium pace across the sky over me and flew behind the tree after 30 seconds.

I got scared and ran into the house and grabbed my video camera and came back out about ten minutes later, but the light never came back. About midnight I laid down to sleep and heard my son cry out. When I looked at the clock I was surprised that two hours had passed. I really do not feel that I fell asleep, but feel I am missing two hours of time. When I opened my eyes my body hurt all over like I had been hit by a truck. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

World Wide Sightings

Argentina Sergeant Reports the First Humanoids

TRES ARROYOS -- Luis Burgos (FAO) reports, “Don Vicente, in the early 1940s, was a Sergeant of the Buenos Aires Provincial Police, and his beat covered such locations as Orense, Oriente, and Cristiano Muerto. One night, with his police partner Gitani, a local boy came running over to them, breathlessly, saying that he had witnessed “a plane crash to the ground in flames”, deep in the fields of Oriente. Don Vicente and his subordinate drove towards the alleged crash site with the young man. The police car stopped and the guide pointed to the crash site two hundred meters away. Near a hill was a very strange disk-shaped luminous object with several humanoids coming and going. At a distance, the beings seemed very tall and were clad in luminous, metallic outfits. Their movements were sluggish and they carried what appeared to be mugs (“tarros”) in their hands. The witnesses made a prudent retreat, but were unable to get their police car to start and all agreed to remain in the vehicle to see what developed. Several minutes later, the craft began to move backward with a slow even motion and speed, always at ground level. This action caused Don Vicente to try to get his police car going once more. Finally he managed to turn the engine over and make an abrupt departure. The next morning, Don Vicente obtained confirmation that the landing site showed signs of burned grass. Unfortunately, the police did not verify this on-site. Therefore, only the story remains the proof. Thanks to S. Corrales, IHU, and Luis Burgos

PROVINCE OF MENDOZA – My name is Christian, my cousin in January of this year in the province of Mendoza took this photograph of this object. My cousin did not realize that the object was there until he arrived home and saw the photos. The object was flying from right to left and could be a large bird but seems much too large.

Thank you very much for your attention and sorry for any inconvenience. My intention is just to show the photo to tell me what you think. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Australia Triangle

Melbourne -- Driving back from work at night my friend's noticed a white light moving across the sky at an accelerated pace. The object got closer and we noticed dull strobes flickering underneath and it was definitely not an airplane. It flew slowly above our car while we were driving at 80km/h. It was a black triangle with three dull lights underneath flashing in a clockwise sequence on each corner at one second intervals. At first, we speculated that it was a US engineered predator spy plane. The sequence was unlike anything a conventional man made aircraft would have. We were all filled with absolute terror as it passed over. As it started to fly away we noticed that it also featured a red static light. It then appeared to turn back around and followed our car as we maneuvered through long sweeping freeway bends. It then flew to the right of our car where we continued to watch it for several minutes and noticed a green static light at the rear.

My friends and I were in shock and kept saying, “It's a bloody spaceship!” After a few minutes the object flew behind the clouds and disappeared. We are 100% sure that this black triangle was not of human origin. My friend claimed to have seen the exact same triangle last year. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Brazil Disc Photographed

SAO SEBASTIAO -- We took the photo at 2:30 PM, while we were at a beach on February 23, 2008(?). We didn't see the UFO until we got home and looked at the pictures. I am sending two pictures. One is the normal picture and the other is "cropped up" with added effect.

Note: The blowup of the photo looks quite convincing and appears as a disk type object. The object shows a small area of reflection from the sun. However, the object is not completely symmetrical. Also the cropped enhanced version sent by the witness "predates" the original photo which doesn't appear to have been edited. This is the metadata associated with the digital photo. This is suspect and I have asked the witness to explain this discrepancy. The photo was taken with a "high end" camera (LEICA V-LUX 1 Single Lens Reflex). This camera has a maximum resolution of 10 mega-pixels. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

Happy Canada Day on this July 1st 2009, Canada is 142 years old today.

SCARBOROUGH -- I wanted to share a couple of photos taken June 16, 2009.I had stopped in my old neighborhood to talk with a old friend after work. I noticed air traffic was quite busy above while we spoke outside his home. I took this picture at 5:49 pm. You can see the image of a white round anomaly in front of the Cessna. Thanks to Paul Michael Shishis

Costa Rica Spherical Orange Object Braking

HEREDIA – On June 6, 2009, we were at a family BBQ of seven people when we saw a rounded reddish orange blinking light hovering between the fog and clouds about 2-5 kms away. A spherical object was going back and forth and braking suddenly. Our camera was not powerful enough to take a picture since it was hiding behind the radiation mist because of the rain in the afternoon and the heat in the night consequent effect. We are very near an Airport MROC (Costa Rica) and we can identify planes and I'm 90% sure it was not one. The object suddenly just faded out. It was like its batteries were running low and it lost power. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Egypt Moving Light Over Pyramids

Cairo -- Dr.Wahid Ibrahim writes on June 23, 2009, I sent you a video of a UFO located 10 km south of Cairo on the eastern shore of the Nile River. It was recorded by my Nokia 6111cell-phone camera around 5.30 am.

Notice there are also three ufos at a higher altitude around this mid-night over the Nile area and Giza plateau. The second video is from, proving the hovering of one clear UFO over the pyramids!\?fuseaction=vids.individual&VideoID=571821 Thanks to Dr.Wahid Ibrahim

Guam Undersea USO

The witness was a quartermaster on a Navy trawler off the island of Guam in 1974. He and several crew mates sighted an object underwater with a flashing red light that was pacing their ship that was not a submarine. The ship changed course to see if the object would continue to follow and it did. The ship's captain called Central Command on Guam to report the incident. Immediately an F-14 fighter was scrambled and flew close to the water and apparently the USO (unidentified submerged object) sped off at nearly the speed of sound (mach 0.8). The next day all of the crew members who witnessed the sighting were debriefed on Guam by two men in gray suits. Crew members were told to sign statements saying that, “They would "never" speak of the incident. Violation would mean court marshal. The veteran is now 54 and feels free to talk of the incident which occurred 35 years ago. The incident also was removed from the ship's log.

Note: Here is another incident where servicemen see UFOs (or USOs) and are forced to sign statements pledging silence. I spoke at length with this veteran and he seemed quite credible. He also related a story regarding the father of his physician whereby UFOs would emerge unscathed after H-bomb (or A-bomb) tests in the Pacific. Listen to Witness Report (MP3) Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

Panama Disc Photographed

COLON FREE ZONE -- Luis Gonzalez writes, “My older brother, Cesar Gonzalez was on a business trip to Panama on May 15, 2007, and was driving alone in early morning on the Northern Corridor Road for the Colon Free Zone. As he drove he noticed a UFO flying very fast from right to left, and stopped few seconds. My brother grabbed his camera and took several photos while driving. My brother was using my camera. Thanks to MUFON CMS

LONDON -- We were at work when I went outside on my tea break to look up to see a large black cylinder object moving up and down slowly on June 24, 2009. I called my workmate out and he had his camera which he put into video mode and shot the cylinder. It started to move up faster, and it was as big as a large jet aircraft as it flew through a cloud. It moved so high we could no longer see it. Thanks to MUFON CMS

WIMBLEDON – On June 26, 2009, a tennis expert was being interviewed by Roger Fedderer as a white UFO passed behind him. It is observable for a few minutes and then just disappears. Watch the screen at 27 mins - 27mins 10 secs into the video in the white background sky. I was watching the news about 12:30 PM, and they were talking at Wimbledon for the tennis and suddenly there was a weird light that seemed to pass in between low clouds. Upon closer examination it seems like it is two orbs following each other

WALSALL -- A mysterious cylindrical object has been spotted in the skies above the Black Country by retired teacher Mike Tunnicliffe who was left scratching his head after seeing the UFO from his Walsall garden on June 28, 2009. Mr. Tunnicliffe, who works part time at County Bridge Primary School, ran to get his camera and snapped the strange shaped object. He's hoping Express & Star readers might know what it is. The 63-year-old of Sutton Road said: “It was a long shiny black cylinder shape, pointed at one end like a pencil. “From where I was standing it was around 30 feet long and around 400 feet off the ground. It was vertical, pointing at the ground.

“It came so quickly then within five minutes it was gone again. “I live close to the arboretum where there have been balloon festivals before, but I am sure it wasn't a hot air balloon. “Nor was it a tethered balloon or blimp. I am at a loss to what it could possibly be.”

Mr. Tunnicliffe said he saw the shape at 2:45 pm yesterday. A recent sighting of a UFO over Dudley Castle pictured in the Black Country was hailed as one of the most important pieces of evidence of alien life.

The photograph was sent to a detective constable, Gary Heseltine, who collects sightings of UFOs. Thanks to the Express and Star.

LADYBRAND – On June 26, 2009, as we were driving on the road to Ladybrand and we were looking at the mountains with snow I noticed a bright shining star like object very very bright. The sun was reflecting off its body and it flew very slow like it was soaking up the sun. Then it seemed to stop and just hover. We first thought it was a plane, but no plane could hover or travel so slow. It was just amazing and got bigger as we traveled around it longer. It was strange as flew behind the mountain.
