NASA told to study own files for UFO data

Agency ordered to meticulously comb for documents about 1965 Pennsylvania incident.

Kecksburg, Pennsylvania - The U.S. government says nothing of note happened in this small town in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania at 4:47 p.m. on Dec. 9, 1965. A meteor may have passed by, but no alien ship or Russian space probe fell to Earth, as many here believe.

Still, Bill Bulebush, 82, says he knows what he saw, heard and smelled, despite the doubts of the government and others in this community 40 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.

"I looked up and saw it flying overhead, and it was sizzling," said Bulebush, a retired truck driver. "I found it in the woods down there (in a valley) and I got to it 15 to 20 minutes after it landed. I saw it 10 to 15 feet away from behind a big tree - because I was worried it might blow up - and it smelled like sulfur or rotten eggs and was shaped like a huge acorn, about the size of a VW."

California, US: Motorist reports strange object in sky above I-5 freeway

A motorist who is a high school football coach is seeking more information about a strange object he says he saw in the skies above Camp Pendleton late Tuesday.

Heading south on Interstate 5 at about 10:45 p.m., Tony Paopao said he and his wife saw what appeared to be a large, brightly lit flying vehicle pass overhead and briefly hover in place, before heading toward the mountains of Camp Pendleton and then out of sight.

"It was about 100 yards up. It was too low to be a plane and it was too fast and too quiet to be a helicopter," Paopao said. "I'm just curious if anybody saw what I saw."

Japan's Defense Minister: "Nobody ever questioned the legality over mobilizing the Self-Defense Forces in the Godzilla movies."

The subject was triggered by a question from oppositional lawmaker Ryuji Yamane, who argued the government should attempt to confirm what UFOs are because of "frequent observations" of them in Japan.

"There are no grounds for us to deny that there are unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and some life-form that controls them," Ishiba said at a news conference. "Various possibilities should be considered."

As most of you know me through my ramblings in the enigmatic world of UFOs, spirit beings, religion and my personal encounters with MIBS, and the world of the paranormal, let me introduce my first meeting with the TV show, Unsolved Mysteries.

Yes, I was involved with them. From trying to find someone who I was told died (my fiancée) but was missing to a case of a UFO landing in Portsmouth, New Hampshire in the early 1980s. Many do not know that if you gave them a case that was aired on the show they gave you an Unsolved Mysteries hat.

UK: UFO sighting over Bolton?

Members of the Bolton UFO Society are investigating a possible sighting of an unidentified flying object (UFO) above the town.

A caller telephoned the society's chairman, Phil Catterall, last Wednesday, saying he had seen a strange object in the sky, at around 8pm.

The man told Mr Catterall, of Pennine Road, Horwich, that he had been driving from Harwood to the centre of Bolton when he spotted a triangular silhouette in the night sky.

Mr Catterall said: "The man wanted to know if there had been any other reported sightings. He was convinced it was a UFO and was quite disturbed by it."

US: Sighting draws UFO research

Lacomb - One clear evening last September, Raye and Derral Laufer spotted what they thought were strange objects in the sky above their home on Moran Lane in Lacomb.

They reported the incident to the National UFO Reporting Center, and the
Democrat-Herald reported on their experience in October.

Since then, Raye has heard from about 100 people who have seen strange things in the sky, and a few saw what she and her husband did: Two silver, bullet-shaped objects heading across the sky and a glowing ellipse size of a Greyhound bus that hovered for about a minute above the treetops of their forested backyard and emitted sparks.

One caller was upset that the couple didn't take any pictures. The Democrat-Herald touched base with Raye again last week.
