UK: UFO sightings on the rise says MOD

The apparent abduction by spaceship of a man's tent, car and dog was one of 135 reports of UFO sightings in Britain last year, according to details released by the Ministry of Defense (MoD).

Three pilots were among more than 100 - mainly anonymous - people who reported the sightings, which included a flying saucer in Staffordshire and a fast-moving triangular object in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. Two of the pilots were flying over Alderney in the Channel Islands when they saw bright orange objects, they said, while the other saw a "balloon-like object" over the South-west.

The number of sightings rose from 2006, when 97 unidentified aircraft were reported. A number of callers insist they saw a "definite UFO".

US: California Gets Hit With Massive UFO Sighting

On January 26, 2008 residents from Orange and Los Angeles County, Anaheim, and Brea, California were witness to a very unusual but spectacular UFO event. Numerous people watched as an object fell from the night sky and to their amazement it came to a complete stop while in flight.

Most folks thought at first they were witnessing a meteor falling to earth until the object stopped and hovered, leaving everyone scratching their heads. While these objects sat and moved around the sky, aircraft were seen and appeared to be checking out these objects. As just about all of the eyewitnesses mentioned to me, they are baffled at no mention in any of the newspapers over the event, or media in general. I must admit, that makes me wonder why not, when so many people witnessed this really unusual event in the night sky.

HBCC UFO Research would love to hear from anyone else who observed the unusual UFO event. There has to be many other people out there who saw this interesting sighting. You can reach Brian Vike through his website.

A Large Ball of Fire

A meteorite slammed into a sparsely populated area of Honduras last month, terrifying residents and leaving a 165-foot-wide crater, scientists confirmed Sunday.

Villagers reported seeing a fireball crash and break into small red and yellow pieces on Nov. 22 near San Luis, in the western province of Santa Barbara. But Sunday's statement was the first official word that the object was a meteorite.

Maria Cristina Pineda, a physicist from the National Autonomous University of Honduras, said Sunday that the meteorite was composed of materials that were 4 billion years old, Pineda said.

UFOs over Cyprus?

Two British expats said yesterday they had seen four UFOs flying over Pervolia in the early hours of Friday.

Giving their names as Anthony and Jimmy, the two men said they were driving home from their night shift between 5am and 6am when they spotted four objects moving in the sky.

One was green, Anthony said.

They followed the UFOs, which they said were moving towards the lighthouse and continued to see them from the verandah of their house.

Anthony said the UFOs were clustered, with two a little higher up.

The unidentified craft then moved higher in the sky and disappeared. The two men were watching the phenomenon from the house for a full 15 minutes, they said.

US: Mysterious light puzzles Albany man

Brian Wright of Albany saw a circular, bright light in the eastern sky about a year ago, and he's wondered about it ever since.

He said he called the military and cable news organizations right after he saw the object, but no one seemed to be interested, and he couldn't find anyone else who had seen it. Then with recent reports of UFOs spotted elsewhere in the country, he contacted the Democrat-Herald.

Argentinean Police Officers make report on UFO

Two police officers, Luis Bracamonte, and Osvaldo Orellano, were patrolling Near Irene, Buenos Aires on 7 December 2007, in their trucks near the Felipe Fernandez ranch. This is a rural area. At one point they stopped the truck while Orellano exited the vehicle and walked around the area while Bracamonte remained inside the vehicle re-charging his telephone card with his mobile phone.

While looking at his phone Mr. Bracamonte notices a small light at about 1:30 AM, which was approaching their location at fairly high speed. Suddenly the light became much larger and brighter, now resembling a large "grey truck".

UFO said seen during Azeri jet crash in Caspian Sea

Azerbaijani military website www.milaz.info has said that something resembling an unidentified flying object was seen over the Caspian Sea at the time of the MiG-29 jet crash on 29 January, Ayna newspaper reported on 31 January.

"Residents of Surabad village in Xizi District, which is close to the scene of the incident, have said this. It is reported that some people saw that flying object although the weather was gloomy," the report said.

Ayna added that it had failed to confirm the accuracy of the information.

"However, according to local residents and traffic police officers serving in the area, the fighter aircraft first flew over the ground. But suddenly a bright object appeared on the surface of the sea and it was like an unidentified flying object. The plane suddenly flew towards that object and then exploded," Ayna reported.

US: Cato caves on UFOs

Free-market economist and commentator Dom Armentano never considered his occasional reflections on America's UFO conundrum to be particularly gutsy. After all, this stuff's on "Larry King" now. But his Jan. 8 op-ed piece in the Vero Beach Press-Journal advocating government declassification was evidently too much for his bosses at the libertarian Cato Institute.

A few days after his column appeared, the Vero Beach resident got a letter informing him Cato was in the "process of overhauling" its adjunct scholars program. More to the point, it was canning Armentano as an adjunct scholar.

California, US: Who else saw 'mystery orb'?

A few weeks before the UFO sighting in Texas, I saw something incredibly familiar in Arcata. Between probably 8 and 10 in the evening, my roommate, who was smoking a cigarette out front, yelled for me to come outside. When I did, I saw a glowing red orb moving slowly across the sky, east to west.

This "orb" was completely silent, and as I watched, it changed its direction and began to move north-northwest. It then picked up speed and flew out of sight faster than I've ever seen anything fly, still no sound.

At this point I saw another aircraft, which looked as if it was military, traveling from the south. This aircraft seemed to be following it.
