From Anomaly TV's website
, a link and commentary on this apparently leaked video
from a local Chicago news broadcast. Before the live feed begins, the newscaster banters about the sighting with the Chicago Tribune's
transportation writer John Hilkevitch, who broke the story on January 1st. Miles Lewis of Anomaly TV points out, "Curiously, the footage ends with an unidentified male voice beginning to say, "It would've landed but, um ..."
In the video, Hilkevitch says that the story got more hits (over 1 million) than any other in the history of the Tribune
website. Are people ready for this kind of information? In an open-minded follow-up story
, Hilkevitch appears to think so. I'm not sure, but I think it's still rare to find a UFO story in the print media without the smirk factor present. For now, we're still dancing around at arm's length with the "UFO Means Extraterrestrial Spaceship"

This is yet another preface to our upcoming series on UFOlogy - the first was our UFOlogy Library. In the past month, I've received many emails from people who would rather see Brainsturbator move in a different direction. Some of these messages have been eloquent and polite, some of them have been very confrontational - but they all make the same point: on a planet where over 10,000 children die every single day due to starvation, disease, abuse or warfare, what the fuck am I doing talking about aliens?
Well, first off, I'm not talking about aliens. The UFO phenomenon is way stranger than mere extraterrestrials. And that's precisely why I'm interested in it, and why I will continue to cover it - it's located at the center of nearly all that is weird and unexplained in the human experience. This is slippery territory, and it's very easy to get tripped up on your own assumptions, it's very easy to make mistakes - huge, retarded mistakes.

Tehran - A radiant Unidentified Flying Object was again observed in the sky of Central Sepidar in the vicinity of Bouyer Ahmad in western Iran from 19:10 to 20:30 hours local time (15:40 to 17:00 GMT) Wednesday.
Witnesses told FNA that the object has been observed for more than an hour.
In a similar incident last Monday, an Unidentified Flying Object was witnessed in the same area and at the same time.
Witnesses also said that the UFO has been as big as a ball, with a yellow ray and a bright reddish color in the center.
They also stated that the object has been flying at a very low altitude.
Officials declined to comment on the event.

They may be all around us... in the sky, in the water, even in our homes. They have been captured only on film and videotape. No one knows what they are, where they come from, whether or not they are alive, and they have never been touched or seen at rest.
They are called "rods," "skyfish" and sometimes "solar entities." Although the video evidence is compelling that they are quite real and probably living creatures, they are completely unknown to science - a fascinating and baffling mystery.

It is interesting to know NASA is completely quiet about it. Whenever Astronauts detect an alien ship trailing the Space Shuttle or other missions, they switch to the encrypted Military communication that is closed to common public.
Evidence has come up which now points to the fact that there are thousands of alien space ships that control the space around the earth. The alien ships follow the terrestrial missions closely. The astronauts see them all the time but asked to keep quiet about the same.

For nearly 60 years, rumors have circulated of strange flying objects emerging from the ocean off our coast and disappearing in a fantastic flash of speed and light.
Sailors, fishermen, dockworkers, police officers, coastal residents and others have reported eerie otherworldly ships emerging from and submerging into local waters.
UFOs, it seems, have established an underwater base somewhere in the deep, dark recesses between the Channel Islands and the coastline between Long Beach and Santa Barbara.
Despite a tendency to scoff at such conspiracies, I decided to do a little investigating. You know, just to be sure.
To learn more, I contacted UFO researcher Preston Bennett of Los Angeles, who appeared on the recent History Channel special Deep Sea UFOs.

A Delaware County family narrowly avoided injury after a chunk of ice came crashing through their home Wednesday evening.
The incident happened shortly after 8:00 p.m. in the 1300 block of Donna Drive in Woodlyn.
Ed and Penny Myers said they were getting their 4-year-old daughter ready for bed when the icy object tore a 3-foot through the roof.
"There was this explosion in the room. At first I thought it was the T.V. shattering and glass, then I looked up and saw the hole in the ceiling and I was afraid the whole ceiling was going to collapse," said Penny.

In the wake of reports of unidentified objects flying over Chicago's O'Hare Airport, a retired Air Force pilot has his own mystery with a rash of bright, colorful lights he photographed hovering in skies over western Arkansas last week.

"I believe these lights were not of this world, and I feel a duty and responsibility to come forward," Col. Brian Fields told WND. "I have no idea what they were."

This was going to be an answer to the Flatwoods and UAV post
, but it became so long that I figured it deserved it's own post. I had no idea that it would generate so much commentary! If you haven't read it, be sure to do so, and don't forget to read the discussion, which is even more interesting.
Today, I re-listened to an interview with legendary Fortean Ivan Sanderson about his Flatwoods investigation, which took place about 2 days after the incident. The recording was from one of the Long John Nebel shows in 1968. Sanderson said that he and other investigators (including Gray Barker) talked to scores of witnesses and determined that there were SIX glowing objects seen on the night of Sept. 12, 1952 in and around the Sutton/ Flatwoods area. They determined this by the descriptions that placed "flaming, glowing" things flying through the night on six separate trajectories, sometimes within 200 feet of witnesses (meaning that they considered the idea that people had seen the same thing from differing angles.) They all traveled in a line from north to south, and I believe he said that the trajectories were almost evenly spaced apart.
The Redfern Files

The revelations that in November of last year a UFO was spotted by personnel at Chicago's O'Hare Airport have created an undoubted frenzy within the media on a scale that hasn't been seen for a long time. Yet, UFO encounters at prominent airports are nothing new. In fact, they are positively old-hat.
I could ramble on for hours with regard to all of the cases I have in my files; but for now, one such report will suffice.
Between 7.25 p.m. and 7.45 p.m. on the evening of February 25, 1959, an unidentified flying object was sighted hovering over London (now Heathrow) Airport by four separate witnesses. One of those fortunate enough to have seen the UFO was an Air Traffic Control Officer at the airport, who studied the phenomenon with binoculars for several minutes, before checking with operators to see if any unexplained air-traffic had been monitored.
Although nothing untoward was picked up on radar, one of the witnesses stated that the UFO resembled "the reflection of a searchlight on the clouds." He was keen to stress, however, that the sky had been entirely devoid of cloud cover at the time of the encounter.
