Filer's Files

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 weeks files cover: Moon Emissions, Winston Churchill Blocked UFO Disclosure, and RAF Jets Scrambled 200 times a Year against Uncorrelated Targets.

Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings over Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington, and West Virginia. Sightings of UFOs also occurred in Argentina, Australia, Canada, China, Italy, and 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 UFOs are visiting us in ever-increasing numbers.

Special Reports

Moon Emissions

Richard Buchli D.V.M. PhD. writes, "This has to be the most revealing moon picture ever. The frame is perfectly machined, and emissions are pouring out of it"

Editors Note: This photo would indicate underground structures and smoke and heat being generated.

Perseid Meteor Shower

Perseid meteor shower peaks on the nights of August 11-12, when the Earth passes through a stream of particles left over from Comet Swift-Tuttle. After midnight as the Earth turns into the stream, many dozens of meteors can be seen each hour, and the Moon will set before midnight.

Planets at Sunset

Mars, Saturn, and brilliant Venus can be seen the western sky at sunset and may cause sighting reports. They gather to within 5 degrees of each other on August 8, then spread out a bit by August 12 when they are joined by a slender crescent Moon.

Winston Churchill Blocked UFO Disclosure

Former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill ordered an alleged UFO incident in the 1950s be kept secret to prevent "mass panic." According to reports, the grandson of one of Churchill's personal bodyguards wrote to the British Ministry of Defense in 1999 hoping to learn more about the incident. His account, along with Churchills claimed reaction, was among a new batch of files released from Britain's National Archives.

The letter describes how the man's grandfather, who served with the RAF in World War II, was present when Churchill went to discuss a UFO sighting with Dwight Eisenhower. The incident involved an RAF reconnaissance plane, returning from Germany that was said to have been intercepted by an unidentified metallic object near the English coastline.

The Daily Mail reports,

"During the discussion with Mr Churchill, a consultant dismissed any possibility that the object had been a missile, since a missile could not suddenly match its speed with a slower aircraft and then accelerate again."The event was totally beyond any imagined capabilities of the time. Another person at the meeting raised the possibility of an unidentified flying object, at which point Mr. Churchill declared that the incident should be immediately classified for at least 50 years and its status reviewed by a future Prime Minister."According to another note found among the new files, however, Churchill and his staff took such claims extremely seriously. By 1957, ministers were commissioning weekly reports on UFO sightings from a committee of intelligence experts.

Bombing of Iran More Likely

WASHINGTON (AP) A former CIA director says military action against Iran now seems more likely because no matter what the U.S. does diplomatically, Tehran keeps pushing ahead with its suspected nuclear program. Michael Hayden, a CIA chief under President George W. Bush, says that during his tenure a strike was "way down the list" of options. But, he tells CNN's "State of the Union" that such action now "seems inexorable."

He predicts Iran will build its program to the point where it is just below having an actual weapon. U.S. officials have said military action remains an option if sanctions fail to deter Iran.

Editors Note: An Israeli attack is most likely.

RAF Jets Scrambled 200 times a Year against Uncorrelated Targets

RAF jets were scrambled to investigate UFOs spotted on radar systems about 200 times a year during the Cold War, the secret files show.

But after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 the number of reported sightings fell to zero as Moscow stopped sending anti-submarine aircraft and spy planes into British airspace. The RAF, however, continued to scramble aircraft in missions against known targets, including hijacked airliners, suspected drug smugglers and jets launched from a Russian aircraft carrier.

The information is revealed in a Ministry of Defence briefing note for a response to a July 1996 Parliamentary Question from Martin Redmond, then Labor MP for Don Valley in South Yorkshire. He had asked how many times RAF aircraft had been scrambled or diverted from tasks to investigate "uncorrelated targets" picked up on radar. The MoD replied that over the past five years there had been no incidents. But further details included in a background note, said: "Prior to the demise of the former Soviet Union, aircraft were scrambled some 200 times annually to intercept and investigate uncorrelated tracks penetrating the UK air defence region from the north. These invariably proved to be anti-submarine or long range reconnaissance aircraft of the then-Soviet air force, some of which had already been intercepted by adjacent air defence systems or intelligence sources." The last scramble of this kind took place in September 1991.

The RAF later occasionally helped customs officers monitor activity in certain areas to detect drug running.

Sightings in the United States

Arizona Sightings

PHOENIX -- Linda Moulton Howe interviewed John Nano, owner of Altavilla Pizza, in Sun City West. On July 18, 2010, at 4:25 PM Pacific, his nephew was driving John and John's wife out to Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix to pick up John's brother. "We went south towards Highway 17, and then we made a left turn on Highway 10 where you can see Phoenix downtown very clear. I tell my nephew, Im going to snap picture of this. He slowed the car down as we were turning left (east) and I snap one picture and we go like another second and I snap another picture on my cellular I-phone. I snapped two pictures (about 1 or 2 seconds apart).

Then we pick up my brother and we go back home and like six days later (around July 24), I was checking the pictures. I look at the first picture that had clear sky. Nothing in there just downtown Phoenix and blue sky. The second image above shows a disc. Thanks to Linda Moulton Howe

Coolidge -- On August 8, 2010, we were watching the sky as relaxation. We noticed a triangular star-like object that would blink out after a few minutes and then move about 10 to 15 degrees to the east and then blink back on. We observed this for a period of about 45 minutes. Each time the object would blink out and come back extremely bright. Looking through the binoculars, the object had colors within it and smaller star like white objects 3 to the left and one to the right of it. The colors were as follows top was blue-green, middle was bright white, lower left was red, lower right was green. It appeared to move drastically and erratically to the south each time. Attached is a zoomed pic of what we saw.

There was slight cloud cover, but it was not around the area where we saw the object. We have seen this object for several nights but had not noticed it moving the way it did this evening. It may just be an odd anomaly, but thought we should report it. Thanks to MUFON CMS

California Rectangle

ROCKLIN< -- On July 20, 2010, at 9:03 AM, from my balcony I saw a dark gray rectangle flying across the clear blue eastern sky. It was spinning, going very fast, then stopped spinning and started hovering. Since it was sitting there just still I got my telescope and saw was the same big gray rectangle with the top right corner broken off. I zoomed in and the whole rectangle was there with a faint yellowish glow around the edges. There were no sounds or lights, coming from said rectangle.

I know it had to be something large and far off in the night sky and not some toy. After putting my telescope down it was gone, poof, then the same thing came again but not spinning, and appearing over some nearby buildings and flying very slowly. Thanks to MUFON CMS

COALINGA -- On July 28, 2010, at 11:34 PM, I saw a low flying black triangle with three bright lights scanning the ground, and performing acrobatics flipping end over end. I was traveling south bound on I-5 on my way south and I look left over the oncoming lane of traffic and I see three lights in a triangle that dips down to where I could not see it. I kept looking over to glimpse it...I thought I lost it but I kept looking anyway because I kept seeing bits of it through some bushes.

Ten seconds later, I see it again, and it's fairly low to the ground; it looks like it's moving quickly so it must be have been somewhat close. Maybe 60 yards away as it pops up and I can see more lights on it. Each corner of the triangle had white lights and there are more along the edge that were turning on and off in a random pattern. Some flicker blue and other colors too. It was black except for the pattern of lights on each edge of the triangle. It would swoop up, would flip, and then swoop very low to the ground. It was a black triangle-flipping end on end.

It would tumble again, stay up for about ten seconds at a time just doing random things in the air, and flip up over end. It did this five times that I saw and then I got to the overpass and called my girlfriend to tell her about it...looked behind me but I did not see it dip down again. I took the next off ramp but at this distance it looked like a normal plane in the. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Connecticut Orange Object

Long Island Sound On July 31, 2010, 9:45 pm , I was standing outside looking at the water and the sky, and noticed a large round red/orange object in the sky moving from the east and traveling west. It appeared to have teardrop or flower petal shapes which pointed toward the center. It maintained the same speed until close to directly overhead, and then increased speed rapidly while moving to the west and climbing. As it seemed to gain altitude, the size became smaller until it was out of sight.

I went in to the house, got my digital camera, and brought two other people out with me.

About four minutes later, the three of us witnessed the same thing. In all, there were four sightings almost exactly as described above. I was able to get a few pictures. Only one came out well enough to see a discernable shape because the others were blurred. The digital photo shows a red/orange fireball. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Florida Sphere

Anclote Island -- My name is Morgan and I am the SW Florida State Section Director for MUFON.

My wife and I were sitting at the kitchen island looking out our large window at Anclote Island getting ready for lunch.

My wife asked, "What the hell are those things?"

I jumped up and looked out and two miles away across open water and five hundred foot above the tree line of Baileys Bluff, were three large flying triangles. The first was the size of Tampa Football Stadium, the next in line was half its size. The third in line was 150 yards per side. I got out our binoculars and at the bottoms of all three was black moving smoke that kept recycling in a well-defined coronal field of many colors.

The tops of all three were low profile, looking almost like the color of the sky, but were slightly off color and well defined by a coronal discharge. I then handed the binoculars to my wife and went to open the glass sliding door so we could go into the back yard.

The triangles were now about straight out by the Anclote Island heading N/W and we lost sight of them over the Gulf when our sight was blocked by our neighbors roofline.

They flew quickly covering about eight miles in a little over four minutes without any sound at all.

My wife then made the comment that they were trying very hard to be invisible but they blew it because there was no doubt, what we both had just seen.

See attached photo for a rendition of what the witness saw.

Miramar -- My husband and I were in the pool with my kids on August 1, 2010, at 8:00 PM, and noticed an orange flame ball high in the sky moving towards us. We leaned back and could see it above our heads. It traveled rather fast, turned into a black ball, and continued to move north. The kids were frightened and got out of the pool. It was very large and clearly visible to the naked eye. There was no blinking lights or tails. I only saw a solid orange-red ball. It traveled at a rather fast speed not like a flash. I watched the news to see it someone else saw something, but didn't see anything. Miramar is About 20 Miles North of Downtown Miami.

Note: This sounds like a weather balloon. A weather balloon was launched at 8 PM EDT from Miami. The balloon would have moved towards the northwest at lower levels of the atmosphere (up to about 6,000 feet). Thanks to William Puckett Director UFOs Northwest

Illinois Lights

northern Illinois -- On August 4, 2010, we were in the house still talking about a strange object we saw an hour earlier when I looked east)out the front window and saw a strange car sitting at the end of the street with only its parking lights about 10:45 pm.. August 4th, 2010. I called my Mom over to look and a few seconds later she suddenly said, "Look, a white light! I immediately looked in the direction to see a white spherical star-like white flashing light darting around in an amazing and shocking way at 5:45 PM. We looked at each other and said "Airplanes don't do that!" We were startled as we continued to watch the object and right before our eyes a second object of the same sort appeared right behind the first. It almost looked as though they were playing chase in an erratic way.

I got my camera as my Mom said, "Oh my God, one of them just shot off so fast, it left a trail of light!" and just as quickly, it returned again. We continued to watch until a plane came through near the objects and they disappeared. Once the plane passed they showed up again. This happened twice. After the second plane passed, they returned soon after almost as if they were hiding. As air traffic picked up, they disappeared one last time never to be seen again. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Indiana Triangle

Decatur County -- At 9:47 PM, on August 4, 2010, I was watching the cloud-to-cloud lighting that is caused by Solar Flares when I spotted an eerie light coming straight towards us. I immediately yelled for my wife, who ran out to join me on our upstairs balcony. It was silent, but I felt vibrations internally. Anyway, this thing is maybe 125 yards above the cornfield and steadily heading DIRECTLY over our heads we both look up in amazement and hold each others hands. My 3-year-old daughter was standing in the doorway watching. We have never seen a vehicle like this. Brightest lights at its point of direction, with a tiny blue light one either sides of the lead point and the eerie glow of the two corners that had lights but were not as piercing as its head point.

It triangle steadily approached us with five lights in the center that were illuminated in different grades of fiery red. After it flew directly above our heads we ran out the other side of our place to watch it leave, it left as it came silent, and steady. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Kentucky Disk

On August 4, 2010, my girlfriend went outside to take some pictures of a storm coming towards us at 6:30PM. In the third photo taken just mere seconds later there is a prominent object in the top right corner of the photo. The Camera use is a DSC-W80 Sony Cybershot, and the camera was set to auto focus. We have taken many thousands of pictures with this camera and never seen anything resembling an orb or strange object. I truly believe this object is real. The photos have been untouched.

She went outside to take photos and when she loaded them to the computer, the object jumped out to me. It looks like an oval separated by rivets on the top and bottom of the craft with a glowing orange-red light in the middle. It does not resemble any flying object I have ever seen. Thanks to MUFON CMS

LOUISVILLE This object was taken on July 4 2010, at 8:12 PM, as it seemed to change shape in multiple exposures.

Louisiana Triangular Star

BATON ROUGE On August 8, 2010, we were watching the sky as relaxation and noticed a triangular star-like object that would blink out after a few minutes and then move about 10 to 15 degrees to the east and then blink back on. We observed this for an about 45 minutes and each time the object would blink out and come back extremely bright. Looking through the binoculars, the object had colors within it and three smaller star like white objects to the left and one to the right. The colors were blue-green, middle was bright white, lower left was red, lower right was green. It appeared to move erratically to the south each time. We have seen this object for several nights but had not noticed it moving like this.

Maine Four Red Saucer Shaped Objects

Falmouth -- Walking out to my car at 10:49 PM, on July 26, 2010, I witnessed three saucer shaped objects gliding in the sky from the southwest. They emitted red and orange light, almost as if the light was being reflected from their surface. The orange and red light was hazy, but it spread in every direction as if I was squinting while looking at the streetlight at night.

The moon was full and these objects were easily detectable. They moved very fluidly as they flew to the northeast silently flying closer and farther apart. It seemed as if they were gliding smoothly, but at times and even slightly moved backward. I yelled to both my girlfriends to look, one took a picture on her I-phone, and the figures arrowhead formation is unmistakable.

They flew out of view to the northeast and another object of the same description emerged from the southwest. This object flew very smoothly but seemed to have slowed down more than the other three and stayed suspended. They were the size of a penny on its side at arms length. After the fourth object hesitated, it followed the other three objects out of sight to the northeast.

We witnessed something incredibly bizarre and we are top students in the colleges we attend, the University of Maine and the University of North Carolina. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director NUFORC

SANFORD -- Since December 25, 2009, I have been taking photographs of the night sky and that was the first time I photographed these objects. I was right outside behind my house. Usually I take these photos after dark. They appear to move very quickly sometimes, and other times they appear to hover. When taking off from a hover position they appear like a shooting star, with a trail of flame behind them. Some nights you cannot see them with the naked eye, but upon taking pictures with a flash, they appear as round spherical objects. Other times you can see different shaped red, green, orange, yellow, blue, or white objects. Any given night I can capture multiple objects with my camera that may be secret machinery unknown to the public. They make absolutely no sounds most of the time, and other times you can hear what sounds like a bunch of jets hovering a long ways up. Some fly as high as the stars and they are different from satellites. One night I watched as they chased a jet. They block out the stars when they are overhead and sometimes move very quickly.

Massachusetts Red Orb

Pittsfield On August 8, 2010, I was turning from Wahconah Street onto North Street, when I saw something bright coming out of the south. It looked like it might have been coming from the direction of the Pittsfield Airport. I quickly pulled over to watch it. I couldn't make out much of the shape, but it looked round and possibly red. Below it were billowing flames. As I watched it move very quickly overhead directly north, the flames began to die down until they were just barely flickering, then dissipated completely. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Michigan Maneuvering Star

Sand Lake -- On August 9, 2010, at 11:32 PM, I was out in my yard when I saw what looked like a star moving in very unusual maneuvers in the western sky. Thanks to William Puckett Director UFOs Northwest

Missouri Images with Blocks of Color

KANSAS CITY -- I was taking pictures of the sky on July 27, 2010, and after loading a few into the computer, I noticed what looked like little color coded blocks, after enlarging them I notice how they reminded me of hieroglyphics. They look like symbols arranged in a triangle. I have no idea why they came out this way, but I was curious as to what you think. I aimed my camera upward and slightly southwest. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Montana Disk

ENNIS MT. -- On July 20, 2010, my husband had traveled to Ennis Mt. to visit his niece. They were out fishing and took pictures, but had not seen anything until they saw the disc on their computer.

New Jersey Large Object

Belleville On August 6, 2010, at 10:45 PM, I went out of my house to take out the garbage and when I got to the end of my driveway, I heard a soft humming noise coming from the sky. I looked up and to my right away in the distant was a large object with lights running all along the front of it in a strobe fashion. The object was hovering in one spot. Its shape was like an upside down bowl. Two areas in the front protruded more than the rest. It moved off to its right which was my left very slowly and then disappeared. It was definitely not a plane or helicopter. It hovered a couple of minutes then moved to its right slowly and disappeared. I have never seen anything like that before. I was not nervous, but more fascinated by what I saw.

I know it was not an aircraft because there were planes and helicopters in the sky, but flying higher. This object was hovering over a field where there are high-tension electrical poles and wires. The round shape and the lights were going around it continuously in a strobe fashion. Thanks to William Puckett Director UFOs Northwest

New Mexico Lightning Objects

White Sands -- I was taking pictures and noticed objects that I could not explain or identify on August 9, 2010. The objects have the same attributes in each photo. Although they are almost pixel sized, I did notice very distinct and similar features of the objects in each of the different photographs. Please check out provided original photos in an image viewer zoom in on the objects, and change contrast/levels. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Ohio Cigar

Orrville -- We were sitting at 9:30 PM, on August 7, 2010, watching a band when two lights appeared almost side-by-side a bit apart. To me they looked like two triangles that had a fireball in the middle. The whole crowd was watching these in awe. Some said they looked like hot air balloons, but it was dark and they were traveling quickly. About ten minutes later, they appeared again. Both times, they were traveling north and people were photographing and videotaping this, but I did not have a camera with me. Thanks to William Puckett Director UFOs Northwest

Pennsylvania Sphere

BUCKS COUNTY -- Pennsylvania police officer stepped out of his patrol car August 6, 2010, at 5 a.m. after an "extremely bright light" in the sky caught his attention, for 30 seconds. "The light then dimmed and began to travel south at a high rate of speed and disappeared when the object was first spotted, it appeared brighter than any other star or planet in the sky, like a helicopter spot light." the officer stated.

The entire event last between "30-45 seconds under mostly clear skies."

Speculating, the officer wondered if it might have been a satellite. "I was under the assumption they only move east to west. I do see many 'shooting stars' since I work only nights, but have never seen anything of this nature. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Texas Triangle

Fort Worth On August 5, 2010, about 2:58 PM, I saw a white or silver object. It was very large and looked like a dinner plate skipping on water. It was somewhat unstable looking. Thanks to William Puckett Director UFOs Northwest

Washington Cylinder

SELAH -- On July 25, 2010, at 9:30 PM, the sun was almost behind Clemens Mountains as my girlfriend and I watched an oval UFO come out of the southern sky below the rising moon. It flashed a very bright white light then dimmed as it shot across the sky. It made a one second horizontal line across the sky and then stopped for five seconds flashing two very bright white lights, and flew up into space. The speed was amazingly fast, with no sound. It was as if the UFO came from another dimension. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center

SEATTLE -- On August 2, 2010, I was flying into Seattle and took a picture from the plane. I looked at the pictures later and found this UFO in one. Not much else to say, I Just wanted to know if someone could clean it up and make it clearer. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Washington Triangle

Port Angeles -- I was outside smoking a cigarette at 9:30 PM, on July 28, 2010, and I am a college Astronomy student and saw a triangular shaped object with three red lights. Strangely, an airplane was trailing behind and the lights and they went white quickly and then back to red, then white again. This is the most amazing thing I have ever seen in my entire life. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center

Washington D.C. Slow Moving UFO Pulse

District of Columbia -- On July 20, 2010 at 3:18 AM, a hyper dimensional UFO was seen over flying the capital about one mile southeast of the White House. It appears to have fired a ray of light or directed energy beam near the White House.

The incident was photographed in high-speed, high definition photographs by Wilbur "Will" Allen, a former White House employee and Air Force One engineer.

Mr. Allen is also a talented professional photographer for major motion picture studios such as Warner Brothers. Mr. Allen states, "On July 20, 2010 at 3:18 AM in NW Washington DC, a relatively short distance from the White House, I imaged a slow moving UFO pulse through the sky, and then the UFO fired an energy beam which extended from it." Mr. Allan also states, "one object I thought to be a star was moving and then discharging a beam of light!

West Virginia Cigar Disappeared.

Metz -- On July 27, 2010, about 7:30 PM, my roommates and I were sitting on our front porch when my Mothers boyfriend noticed something gliding in the eastern sky flying in a SSW direction. We had visual observation of the craft for about five minutes before it faded out of sight. The craft was a silver cigar shape with a dark band in the middle. I could not make out any wings or a tail. It was completely silent, and there was no contrail. Most planes go out of sight over a nearby hill, but this did not go over the horizon and out of sight. Rather, the object seemed to get smaller and smaller, until it was no longer visible.

Upon realizing all the strange attributes of this craft, I managed to capture several photos. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center

Worldwide Sightings

Argentina Photographs

LAKE ARGENTINOS - We took several photos with a digital camera on August 2, 2009, and did not notice anything unusual. When checking the photos later we saw this cylinder above the mountain.

This is a repost of my earlier report on a photo taken on August 4, 2009, except this one includes the pictures I was not able to attach to the original. This is an enlarged edited version of one of the pictures. -SGonzalez/CMS

Australia Spherical Object

RUNCORN/BRISBANE -- On August 1, 2010, I was walking around doing my rounds as a security guard and trying to make out if a star was the ISS or not. I was looking towards the southeast at 10:30 PM, when a bright spherical light appeared in the sky. At first, I thought it was a star until it moved very quickly from left to right towards the ground. I thought it had impacted, so I climbed an embankment to look. No sign of any impact in the distance, so I am guessing it could have been a satellite or a meteorite, but why was not there a tail on it?

Canada Sightings

Ottawa On August 9, 2010, we had a sighting of four disc like grey/black objects moving silently across a cloudy sky, which appeared to be rotating and moving. Thanks to MUFON CMS

MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- On July 27, 2010, I woke up about 11 am , and decided to take pictures from my 20th floor apartment. The sky was completely clear at the time and there were no planes or objects in sight. I unfortunately took only two pictures and later that same day I decided to look through the pictures and found something I could not explain that was far away and yet big. The camera I was using was a full HD 1080p Sony (13.6 mega pixels) and the picture was good quality. Thanks to MUFON CMS

China Daytime UFO Sighting

LESHAN CITY -- According to a Chinese media report on July 26, 2010, citizens saw a triangular UFO in the sky at 10 AM. Lu Shan who captured this image with his phone camera describes three round illuminated discs. The lights first appeared in the west to the naked eye with a diameter of about 20 to 50 cm. They moved north as the radius became increasingly small and lasted for more than ten minutes before disappearing.

Professor Wang Sichao, from Purple Mountain Observatory of Chinese Academy of Science, said the identity of those discs might be ice crystals in sky called a mock sun but Wang felt the situation was not adequate for them to form. Professor Wang states July and August are the best months for viewing UFOs; generally after 10 PM. Major UFO sightings tend to occur in years ending with numbers 1, 2 or 7.

Italy Disk

CESAREA On August 5, 2010, the webcam in Santa Cesarean showed a gyroscope-like UFO that was identical to the photo attached in an earlier report These gyroscopes seemed stationary, so I thought, well maybe its lens flare. Then I saw this little glowing sphere floating over the water. A jellybean shaped glowing object travel along the shore, seeming to hover over the water, from right to left moving fast. A couple of minutes later, the gyroscope thing was suddenly gone. Is it a beacon of some kind, I wonder?

Editors Note: The photos on succeeding nights show a similar object in the same location indicating the bright lights on the ground are likely reflecting on the lens of the camera. The moving object is interesting.

UFO filmed over the Vatican by U.S. security guards

Rome Maurizio Baiata writes, "UFOs seen in the skies over Vatican City stirred newspaper headlines and numerous TV news reports as a UFO flap is occurring and strange objects were recorded several times." The most important one is the footage of an odd luminous formation taken by three security guards stationed in front of the residence of the U.S. ambassador to the Vatican. These were qualified witnesses trained experts in air surveillance.

It was at 4 AM on June 7th when three men belonging to the 17 antiaircraft Regiment at the "Santa Barbara" station in Sabaudia, spotted three spherical bright objects hovering in the sky above St. Peters Dome. They promptly filmed the unexpected nocturnal air show with a cell phone. They stopped a police patrol and described the objects swift maneuvers, mentioning a "darting move toward the sky," a "delta formation," and "luminous dots suspended at about three hundred feet above the ground."

They added that there is "no way a conventional airplane can do such things." The UFO disappeared and reappeared for brief moments, with sudden changes of altitude before it darted westbound. The police patrol took the report very seriously and the Central Police Station in Rome was immediately alerted and acquired the UFO footage that was more than a minute in length.

Many TV networks took the news seriously. Colonel Marco Picciau of the Italian Air Force specifies that "statistics of sightings reported before 2001 were 300, after 2001 we have a more precise statistic on 50, 55, sightings [every year]".

The second issue of Open Minds magazine, Antonio Huneeus wrote the cover story about the Vatican Extraterrestrial Connection, which includes a section about UFO sightings in Rome going all the way back to 214 B.C. The article describes in detail a famous report in 1954 when a formation of unidentified objects flew right on top of St. Peters square and made a St. Andrews cross for a few seconds.

UK Sightings

On August 4, 2010, we saw a strange orange light in the sky, and realized it was not a plane when it flew up and disappeared into the clouds. We made our way to the campervan and noticed another strange brighter light had begun to move in the same path. After looking at the photographs, we noticed that there was a third strange red disc shaped object above the others. As the second orange object passed my wife's mobile phone lit up as if she was receiving a message or phone call, but nothing was on the screen. We then looked at the clock and noticed that it had lost five hours.

Editors Note: Possible Chinese lanterns carrying sign.

BARNOLDSWICK, LANCS -- My 19-year-old son was woken by cats fighting at about 4 AM, on August 2, 2010, and looked out about ten minutes at a bright light making a 'S' shape flight in the sky.

Elaine Douglass writes, "Large forces are operating unseen upon the face of the planet, forces that would write our destiny.
