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: General George S Brown UFOs over Vietnam, Phantom Ray Aircraft Unveiled, Former New Hampshire State Rep Claims Eisenhower was Briefed About ET, Mars Claw and Panels, US Terrorism Center Says Terrorist Attacks Growing, Mexico's Pemex oil spill was much Worse than BP oil spill so Far, Moon Blip, and Alien Interference in Home Sapiens Development.

Unidentified Aerial Phenomena were reports from Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Massachusetts, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Virginia. Sightings of UFOs occurred in Argentina, Australia, Canada, Columbia, Germany, Norway, England and Scotland in the United Kingdom.

The purpose of these files is to report 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 London Control ordered me to intercept one over England while flying for the US Air Force. Under Project Blue Book, the US Air Force investigated UFOs for more than twenty years; and 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.

We believe we are conducting the most profound search in human history — to know our beginnings and our place among the stars.

Special Reports

General George S Brown UFOs over Vietnam.

In 1968, when I was an Intelligence Officer, I briefed my commander General George S. Brown, at 7th Air Force Headquarters in Saigon, Vietnam about UFOs near the DMZ.

General Brown states in a Department of Defense transcript of press his conference in Illinois, October 16, 1973. "I don't know whether this story has ever been told or not. They weren't called UFOs." They were called enemy helicopters. And they were only seen at night and they were only seen in certain places. They were seen up around the DMZ in the summer of '68. And this resulted in quite a little battle. And in the course of this, an Australian destroyer took a hit and we never found any enemy, we only found ourselves when this had all been sorted out. And this caused some shooting there, and there was no enemy at all involved, but we always reacted. Always after dark. The same thing happened up at Pleiku at the Highlands in '69." Thanks to General George S. Brown, USAF Chief of Staff and later Chairman of the Joint Chiefs.

Phantom Ray Unveiled

With a 50-foot wingspan and measuring 36 feet long, Phantom Ray was designed and developed by Boeing Phantom Works based on a prototype the company had originally created less than a decade ago for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)/U.S. Air Force/U.S. Navy Joint-Unmanned Combat Air System (J-UCAS) program. Using a rapid-prototyping approach, Phantom Ray evolved into the technology demonstrator unveiled on the floor of Boeing's St. Louis facility on May 10, 2010.

Former New Hampshire State Rep. Claims Eisenhower was Briefed about ET

Honolulu Exopolitics Examiner Michael Salla reports: A former representative to the New Hampshire House of Representatives has released a video statement revealing he saw a secret brief to President Eisenhower concerning extraterrestrial life. Henry W. McElroy, a Republican, served on various committees during his time in the New Hampshire State legislature, and is best known for sponsoring a new Gold Money bill in 2004 that aimed to restore the use of Gold and Silver coins in the Granite State.

He most recently ran for and won the Republican primary for State Representative to the 2008 elections, but did not win re-election. In his statement, recorded on May 8, 2010 in Hampton Virginia, McElroy claims that the brief revealed that extraterrestrials were present in the United States, they were benevolent, and a meeting could be arranged for Eisenhower.

Richard Buchli D.V.M. PhD. writes, "The measuring tape is 250 feet long. The claw shape formation is found in the outcrop from the Aureum Chaos on Mars.”

This object was also found while I was using Google Earth and appears to have a row of windows or panels on it. Thanks to Gary Prowant

Moon Blip

My name is Eduardo and I am from Brazil. I am sending three frames of a film that I took of the moon two weeks ago. I have never seen something like that. Can you and your readers help me to discover what is it? I recorded the images on those coordinates:

Thanks to Eduardo Vieira de Lucena

Editor's Note: Does anyone have ideas. It seems like a bubble, camera anomaly, or perhaps a glass dome.

Mexico's Pemex oil spill was much Worse than BP oil spill so Far

This is not the first massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, on June 3, 1979, Mexico's government Pemex rig exploded causing a spill of 30,000 barrels daily for months and was not finally capped almost a year later on March 30, 1980. That leak was at a depth of 160 feet and a total of three million barrels of crude destroyed the habitat for the rare Kemp's Ridley sea turtles and damaged the environment. Currents floated the slick onto 162 miles of beaches on the Texas coastline where 1,421 birds were coated with the oily substance and rescued by volunteers. The Mexican government refused to compensate U.S. claims for damages, according to Wikipedia.

Since the April 20, 2010, the BP spill has covered about 3,650 square miles, the size of Delaware and Rhode Island combined. In both oil spills, the blowout preventer devises failed to work. Shear rams contained in the preventers were unable to severe the thick steel walls of the drill collars leading to a catastrophic blowout. Meanwhile, President Obama Friday vowed to end the "cozy relationship” between the oil companies and the US Interior Department's Mineral Management Service.

The oil on the surface is apparently just a fraction of the oil that has spilled into the Gulf of Mexico. Significant amounts of oil are spreading at various levels throughout the mile deep-water column. Vastly more oil may be spilling than has been reported. Massive "dead zones” at various depths where no creature can live because of the lack of oxygen in the water could spread throughout the region.

Gulf shorelines have, so far, emerged relatively unscathed. The oil is a lighter grade than that in the Exxon Valdez spill, and nature may play a role in the clean up. BP is spreading dispersant that is diminishing the oil at the surface breaking into smaller drops. It is not clear what this would mean environmentally, though past research indicates that oil is trapped in the seabed for decades causing harm to the shrimp and seafood industry. The Gulf currents operate differently at different levels, making the exact location and spread of the oil at different depths. There is concern the oil will enter the Loop Current shown on the map, move to the Florida Keys, and up the East Coast. Thanks to TMV and Wikipedia.

Alien Interference in Home Sapiens Development

Robert Ash writes, "I was surprised to read Lloyd Pye's comment in your last newsletter about the "missing link" being situated between Neandertal and early” Sapiens. Neandertal shown in the photo was long considered so close to us that he was described as a subspecies of Sapiens. He was more robust, better adapted to cold climate and had a slightly larger brain. He almost certainly had speech ability and a culture, which can be described as clearly human, rather than animal-like. Now recent news reports about research on Neandertal's genome have suggested that some amount of interbreeding took place a 100 000 to 40 000 years ago between the two species. I think the missing link problem refers to a much older step in evolution.

Concerning the transformation of the human skull, French paleoanthropologist Anne Dambricourt-Malassé has supported the controversial view that the change to human upright , standing position, was not the result of environmental pressure (a move from forest to plains), but a "genetically planned" evolution. The receding jaw would be a modern continuation of this process. She did not allude to any extraterrestrial involvement, but it seems to me that if the effects of this transformation are measurable over the period of a human generation, it is a very quick change indeed, and I am not convinced that diet alone can account for it. Thanks for opening your space to this interesting topic. Best, Robert Ash

United States Sightings

Arizona Photo Dark Orbs

PHOENIX -- I was out taking pictures of some unusual looking chemtrail clouds on May 13, 2010, and I did not notice anything in the sky until I looked at the pictures. I do not know what they are, but we have had many UFO sightings here. Thanks to MUFON CMS

PEORIA --Around 6:45am, on May 13, 2010, I was getting my kids ready for school when I noticed a beautiful rainbow colored ring around the outermost edges of the sun. About six minutes later, I got my camera phone and take some pictures of this. While I was reviewing the photos, I saw the bright orb slightly above the sun. I was about to dismiss the whole thing as some kind of natural phenomenon, when I felt for a second time a very strong nudge to go outside and take more pictures. If you look closely to the picture taken at 7:16 you will notice the orb just passing in front of the sun on the bottom right. The other photos show the orbs path. I could not see the orb with the naked eye. I felt really excited and have had some interesting encounters. Thanks to MUFON CMS.

Editor's Note, Cameras often pick up reflections when shooting near the sun.

California Rectangle

Shasta Lake City -- on May 13, 2010, at 10:50 PM, I was lying in bed looking out window, heard an aircraft, and saw four flying lights in the shape of a square object. The object came even closer, the lights disappeared, and the flashing lights that you would see on a regular aircraft appeared. A few seconds later, they also disappeared along with the sound that I heard in the beginning. This is kind of, what it looked like.

Note: Rectangular square unidentified craft are rarely reported. The witness report is difficult to interpret, but his sketch speaks volumes. There was a rectangle like this one witnessed by three over Interstate 81 near Baileyton, Tennessee a few years ago. This object was seen late in the evening through a telescope. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

Carpinteria -- On May 13, 2010, my wife and I were walking back home and I pointed out the Big Dipper and movement caught my eye and I thought it was a satellite. Pointing up I showed my wife a perfect triangle moving thru the sky. The corners had a faint gray/blue/white light that were also triangles. It flew northeast curving slightly to east before fading out of view. It was silent there was an aura about it. You could clearly make out the outline and lighting. We were thankful what we both saw. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Colorado Triangle

GUNNISON -- at about 10:30 PM, on May 8, 2010, a friend and I, both Western State College students were outside, happened to look up at the stars, and observed a triangular shaped aircraft with many orange lights and a few blue lights streak across the sky, the rear end of the aircraft had an orange glow. This aircraft was larger than any plane I have ever seen and was flying low and did not make any sound. I believe that if it were a plane, perhaps it was a stealth bomber, but it is likely that even if it were a stealth bomber flying that low it would have had to make some noise.

There is an airport in town and we are used to seeing military aircraft training, but I but I believe this was out of the ordinary enough to report it as a UFO. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Brendan T. Byrne State Forest -- Is a 34,725-acre area in the New Jersey Pine Lands. Five witnesses saw a creature they all claim was seven foot tall and matched the standard Sasquatch description on May 14, 2010.

North Carolina Formation of 20 red flashing lights

ROLESVILLE -- My husband and I saw a string of about twenty reddish flashing/blinking lights in the sky on May 5, 2010. Some in groups of three, some in pairs and others single. We at first thought that they were simply planes in formation, but as they were "flying" farther north, some would disappear. My husband, a pilot, realized they were not planes, but we couldn't figure out what they were. All of them eventually disappeared. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director (MP3)

Note: This is an interesting case and one that is not explainable. The only problem is that the sighting is five years old making it very difficult to find other witnesses. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

Oregon Oval Craft

Central Point -- On May 13, 2010, went out to my car, and since I have an amateur astronomer, I tend to look up in the sky and noticed a bright object in the sky flying west towards the Medford Airport. I retrieved my binocular (Nikon SE 10X42) and focused on this object and determined it was not a commercial or military craft as it had no running lights. I watched it for ten seconds and realized I needed a witness and so I ran back inside and got Brian and Tex who ran out and saw it. It turned southeast, veered upward at great speed and disappeared. I knew very quickly that I was observing a craft not of conventional design and quite bright. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Pennsylvania Light

PHILADELPHIA -- On May 10, 2010, this bright light hovered over the city from New Jersey.

South Carolina Triangle Lights

Greenville -- I was backing out of my driveway when I noticed a huge light in the sky that was much bigger than any star. It was star-like in color, only much brighter. I asked my parents to come outside and look at the object. It seemed to fade in and out at times. Through the binoculars, we could see three points of light but couldn't tell if it was the same object or three separate ones. I took pictures and have no idea what they are, but it seems they are three separate objects because the stars are clearly visible between them. We lost sight of the object after about 25 minutes due to clouds as they moved away. As incredible as this picture looks, it is in fact 100% real! Thanks to MUFON CMS

Tennessee Silver Fish Shaped Object

SAVANNAH -- On May 3, 2010 at 7:45 PM, my second visual of an unusual object. We were at the baseball field and halfway through the game I looked up and saw this gray silver object in the air. I told everyone to look. It was very shiny as if the sun was reflecting off it, but it had no lights. The object had a rocket shape and made no sound. It looked like it was floating with the front of it a little lifted. It did not look like a plane. I took several pictures. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Texas Triangle

HALLETTSVILLE -- On May 1, 2010 at 11 PM, we saw this large glass like structure with three lights midways between each point. It made no sound and floated by like a balloon. It passed behind some trees and I ran to try to get ahead of it, but it was gone as quickly as it appeared. With the exception of the glare on its sides, which appeared to be dim lights, it could be anything. This thing almost blended perfectly with the night sky except for its reflective ability. If I had a rifle, I was close enough to hit it. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Utah Objects

On May 5, 2010, I looked up and noticed a pitch black object about 100 feet away at 8:15 PM. I asked my dad "What is that?" As it moved slowly changing shapes. It looked like kite and then a hang glider. I saw wings or spiky points in the back as it shape shifted. It started moving west and I ran to the front of my driveway looking up to see where it went. We couldn't see through the trees so we [rest of text missing from bulletin].

My Mom said she had seen it off and on. It appeared again heading east looking like a star shaped figure floating and hovering there. We followed as it headed east and eventually out of sight. Snip. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Carol Fearless writes, "I thought I'd send you this photo of the same light over Peru, as that that happened in South Utah.” Thanks to Carol Fearless

Virginia Cylinder Cloud

CLIFTON -- During the afternoon of May 15, 2010, a few friends of mine took some pictures of this strange formation in the clouds. They said, "This long cylinder formation did not seem to be moving and after five minutes or so slowly dissipated. From their description of the event, it did not sound as if it was some kind of craft, but I found the pictures interesting. Look for yourself. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Washington Suburb

Federal Way -- On May 13, 2010, at 12:30 PM, he looked up and noticed two bubble like objects high in the sky. The objects were stationary, then moved apart, moved closer together and then sped off and vanished. The objects glistened in the daytime sun.

Note: Sightings of this nature in daylight are not common. It is doubtful that the objects were conventional aircraft or balloons. It is unlikely that others saw these objects because the witness only briefly saw them and he happened to be looking up at the sky at the right time. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

World Wide Sightings

Argentina Rectangle UFO in Photo

IGUAZU FALLS -- Ximena writes, "I wanted to share with you this picture I took three weeks ago on April 21, 2010, at 3:54 PM, just as it stopped raining.” I took the photo with a Canon EOS 40D.

Editor's Note: I asked Ximena, if anyone had seen the object, and her response was a Mexican couple who took my husband and my picture for us on a rainy day. However, upon closer inspection, the number of odd factors prompted us to explore the image more closely with enhancements. Thanks to -

Australia Activity

NSW Camden -- In April 2010, at 5:45 PM sunset, five of us a saw reddish tail that went white once the sun got lower. My mates and I were playing footy when I saw I weird shaped cool cloud and pointed it out. As we watched it, my mate pointed out it was moving with a tail at least 100 meters long; The UFO had to be huge for us to see it at that distance. It moved quite quickly for the altitude and was about three times higher than a plane and going 2000 plus km. It moved so far in the space of 10-15 minutes. It did not move straight like a plane and curved as if it was circling the earth. Eventually we could see it had moved too far away.

On May 9, 2010, I saw it again, but for not as long. Thanks to John Hayes WWW.UFOINFO.COM

Agnes -- "I thought you might like to see this, I took this with a Nikon Digital camera on 7 May in a UFO hotspot called Water Central, Queensland. It is a small coastal town and we see many UFOs here. I took the picture at sunset from the deck of my home overlooking Bustard Bay. There are orbs of all colors and sizes every night.”

Bulgaria Red Light

BLACK SEA -- I looked out the window and saw a red light in the sky, across the gulf that at first I thought was a signal flare. However, it was much too big, just sitting there static and far too bright. I went to get my phone to take a picture of it, but by the time I got back, it was gone. I am quite positive it was not a plane and not a star. Perhaps it was ball lightning, but I think it was far too big for that too. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Canada Sightings

Montreal -- Canadians just won the east quarterfinals of the Stanley cup series against Pittsburg on May 12, 2010, and many people were outside celebrating when we saw what seemed like airplane lights coming from the northwest. It was flying over the buildings and gradually slowed to a stop. We thought it was a helicopter with a weird orange light. Then two more crafts appeared from the north, and slowly joined the other light. Then a couple of minutes later two more flew into view. They all disappeared going slowly to the west. Had these been helicopters, the sound would have been loud. These were no flares and must have been UFOs. It looked like they were observing the people celebrating outside. The light was orange and flickering, not like navigation lights, larger and somewhat fuzzy. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Columbia Green Light

Envigado -- On May 16, 2010, I was in my bedroom taking photos of the mountains as the storm clouds were forming when a green light appeared. I watched a green and oval light late into the night and the light appears in the same point but in different positions.

Two years ago, I took a photo to the sky and immediately something reflected in the sky. When I checked, the photo there was a white oval light on it. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Ireland Bright White/Orange Orb

CORK -- My friend called me to the window to see a strange constant light in the sky over Middleton. He asked me to verify it because other lights were flying in the vicinity on May 07 2010, at 9:30 PM. I saw a bright white/orange orb shaped constant object. The light was descending like a much brighter version of the planet Venus. It didn't veer off its path once as it slowly descended and eventually vanished behind the nearby tree line.

We have great visibility so we've both on numerous occasions witnessed satellites, but this object seemed to be well inside the Earth's atmosphere, at 5 to 10,000 feet and looked like it was coming in to land about 15 miles away. Thanks to John Hayes

Germany Disc Photo

48.4 N 8.017`E`-- When I took the UFO photo on May 6, 2010, I did not see it. I was just taking pictures since it was our last day in Germany. I took the second picture twenty minutes later since the Mercedes out front was our ride to the airport. Note that in the UFO picture the first side window is reflecting gold whereas the second picture it is reflecting a tree when the UFO is not there. I did not notice the UFO picture until today when I was going through digital photos. I was using a Kodak Easy share. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Norway Triangle

Tromsø -- I was watching a late movie on May 14, 2010, when my TV went stone black. A big bright light flashed through my living room, very slowly. I rushed to the window and saw very bright lights outside almost blinding me. Then it moved over to the building on my left and started flashing lights into my neighbor's apartment so I got my camera. I wasn't able to turn it on, none of my electronics worked until twenty minutes after it was gone.

It continued to flash a bright light into seven apartments, and appeared to be searching and scanning the apartments. The light was like the ones you see on lighthouses with a hint of red. The object was a silent and a slim triangle, with four "spikes;" three on top, one very small one where the light was coming from. The surface reminded me of a toaster. I opened the door as the light turned on me and I was terrified. Then it flew right over my building and was gone. Thanks to MUFON Thanks to MUFON CMS


Scarborough -- On May 11, 2010, mystery continues to surround a strange object photographed in the sky above Scarborough. Evening News photographer Andrew Higgins was puzzled after spotting the UFO above Betton Farm in East Ayton. He was photographing Basics Plus director Avis Turner and the mystery object appears in just one frame and not in other photos taken at the same time. No aircraft were seen or heard.

The small black spots on the photo are dust on the camera sensor. Russ Kellett has come forward after seeing the image and said he believed the object could well be a UFO. Mr Kellett, who is vice-chairman of the British Flying Saucer Bureau, said, "When I first saw the picture I thought it was a fighter jet banking to the right, but the problem is that the object looks to have three parts to it.”

"There seems to be a main fuselage and then two spheres either side of that and the sphere on the bottom seems to be blocking out the electricity cable.” It can't be a trick of the light because it is covering the overhead cable and the object appears to be almost the length of the car that is also in the photo."

Aliens Attacking Sheep in Shropshire, England

Jason Clarke of Morningstar reports, "A group of farmers near Shrewsbury are claiming that their livestock is being attacked by aliens firing lasers from their flying saucers”. For years farmers in the area, a 50-mile "corridor” between Shrewsbury and Powys, have suffered mysterious livestock losses. Dead sheep were often found with their eyes or brains removed. Sometimes they would be partially skinned, but only on the left side of their bodies. Small entry wounds would be discovered on the sheep's cadavers but entire organs would be missing.

Investigators from the Animal Pathology Field Unit have been studying these strange animal mutilations for years and last month 16 members of the organization claim to have witnessed UFO activity in the area just prior to more mutilated sheep being discovered. Investigator Phil Hoyle described how his group witnessed glowing orange spheres in the skies above Shropshire firing what looked like lasers. "The technology involved in these attacks is frightening,” he told The Sun. "These lights and spheres are clearly not ours. They are built by technology and intelligence that's not from here.” Mr Hoyle described what he saw as looking like a battle scene from Star Wars. The following day when the group interviewed farmers in the area, all but one reported mutilated livestock.
