Signs Supplement: UFOs - Part 1
13, 2002 - July 25, 2003
| Panic-stricken Indian villagers
are blaming UFOs for a spate of attacks that have killed several
people and injured many others in Uttar Pradesh state. - In the
past week seven people have died of unexplained injuries, while
many others have been burnt. - Ramji Pal, was one such fatality,
dying recently in Shanwa. His neighbor, Raghuraj Pal told The Associated
Press that "a mysterious flying object attacked him in the night."
"His stomach was ripped open. He died two days later." - But doctors
have dismissed the stories as mass hysteria. "More often than not
the victims have unconsciously inflicted the symptoms themselves,"
AP quoted Narrotam Lal, a doctor at King George's Medical College
in Lucknow, the state capital, as saying. [Yeah, right!]
| UFOs are destroying
the plains of fertile central Greece, according to farmers who claim
to have spotted alien aircraft landing in their fields.
|A MYSTERIOUS flying object said
to attack sleeping villagers has sparked mass hysteria and rioting
across the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Police shot dead
one man and injured 12 others when a mob of hundreds stormed the
police station in Barabanki, demanding protection against what they
believe is an alien assailant terrorising villages. - The Times
of India reported that the national intelligence bureau was sufficiently
concerned to send its own agents, like Mulder and Scully from television's
X-Files, to investigate the "alien" invasion. - After
listening to villagers' descriptions of the muhnochwa , the agents
constructed their own replica from the base of a mixer-grinder,
fitted with coloured lights, and hoisted it onto a pole in an attempt
to entice the extraterrestrial. Then they waited. At 1.05am they
were rewarded with a flash of light &l! dquo;like a photocopier",
which repeated three times. A videotape was said to show a flash
of light passing across the screen. The agents concluded that the
villagers were right and that they were indeed experiencing an extra-terrestrial
|Contrary to belief that the illuminated
'flying monster' was either an insect or a remote-controlled device,
Professor Ravindra Arora discovered that it was nothing other than
balls of lighting that often fall on earth during dry spells. -
He attributed much of the panic to superstitious beliefs that often
dominate the minds of the vast rural population in this part of
the country. At the same time, he was confident that the menace
would end with the onset of monsoon.

or bald, bulbous-brained geeks. His is a rational vision, one built
on hard facts and intelligent speculation, which is hardly surprising
given that he is senior astronomer with the SETI Institute in California.
Forget what you've seen on The X-Files, SETI (the search for extra-terrestrial
intelligence) is the serious, scientifically based endeavour of
looking for signs of other civilisations beyond Earth.
|[...] When troublesome events started
to occur, some people saw a spaceship hovering above the fourth
generating unit of the Chernobyl plant. Eyewitnesses say that an
UFO was there for six hours and that hundreds of people saw it.
People started writing about it only two years after the catastrophe.
Of course, such information appeared in magazines on ufology. As
it is generally believed, serious people don't read such magazines
and journals. [...]

The British government will
publish files on reported UFO sightings as part of a shake-up
of its laws on freedom of information. Among the documents to
be published is the "Rendlesham File," which deals with one of
the country's best known sightings of an unidentified flying object.
Until now, only about 20 members of the public have seen the
file, which relates to a sighting in Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk,
eastern England, in 1980. According to some UFO enthusiasts, eyewitnesses
including U.S. officers at a nearby military base saw a brilliantly
lit spaceship land in the forest on two consecutive nights. Skeptics
say the witnesses were fooled by the beam from a lighthouse on
the nearby coast. The Rendlesham file has been available to the
public for some time but only at the discretion of the Ministry
Now, the government says it will publish it on the Internet before
the end of this week, along with other files on reported UFO sightings.
"These first steps mark important progress toward changing the
culture of government and extending the public's right to know
what is being done in their name," Freedom of Information Minister
Yvette Cooper said in a statement.
The government says it intends to repeal or amend up to 100 pieces
of legislation which currently prohibit disclosure of information.
It aims to replace them with provisions of a new Freedom of Information
Act, passed in 2000.
|Much has been said about the "UFO"
developments of the Third Reich; however, some important questions
still remain. Were the Germans actually successful with these developments
or not? According to some sources, an UFO crashed near the city
of Freiburg in 1936. The UFO was found, and it's likely that German
scientists with the assistance of Schutzstaffel (SS) managed to
repair and even test the UFO's energy system and propulsion systems.

- Local scientists are quietly
working to give UFO sightings a measured look and lend legitimacy
to those who spot them - The National Aviation Reporting Center
on Anomalous Phenomena. Headed by former NASA scientist Richard
Haines of Los Altos, the year-old group is one of several private
organizations saying that UFOs deserve a measured, scientific
look. With research helpers around the country, it's a confidential
sounding board for professionals in the taboo-bound aviation field.
Haines' focus is on helping flight and ground crews safely handle
something many have experienced but few have talked about. "Everybody's
so God-darned afraid of everything," Daniels said.
"How does science rationally deal with a phenomenon that stays
with an airliner at high altitude (and) at high speed for 20 minutes?"
he asked. "It automatically eliminates a long list of mundane
phenomena." Haines' group has collected 1,300 pilot reports and
is gathering more from government and private sources in many
countries. "This is kind of snowballing," said Ted Roe of Vallejo,
the group's executive director. "First off, we're learning that
the phenomenon is distributed globally." [...]
It's all a magic show of the mind, most scientists tend to think.
Few have ventured in. But Haines is attracted because he believes
a conservative approach can gain on the mystery. A former NASA
behavioral scientist who worked on manned moon missions and later
helped design aircraft cockpit displays, he has published more
than 70 journal articles in his specialty. He prides himself on
his caution. [...]
Haines stands apart from the UFO culture and even from the acronym
itself. He instead likes UAP, for unidentified aerial phenomenon.
The coinage is picking up currency: Scientists and aviation experts
adopted the acronym for a November conference at George Washington
University in Washington, D.C., on aerial mysteries and interstellar
|"Visitors" from another
world are creating an out-of-season tourist invasion at Loch Ness.
After the Inverness Courier revealed unexplained lights had been
seen - and filmed - on successive nights in the sky over Drumnadrochit,
UFO research groups and individual enthusiasts from around Scotland
announced plans to head to the area to carry out their own investigations.
Former Royal Navy submariner Lee Close, of the Anglo-Scottish UFO
Research Agency, was one of the investigators who contacted the
Courier to appeal for more information on the sightings. Mr Close,
whose group is currently researching 17 UFO sightings in the Fife
and Dundee area, now wants to investigate the Loch Ness sighting.
|Local people have
reported strange objects in the sky above Dubbo recently prompting
an appeal from the Independent Network of UFO Researchers (INUFOR)
for anyone with similar sightings to come forward. On Tuesday January
14 about 8pm a family on a property between Dubbo and Parkes saw
something in the evening sky they couldn't explain, according to
INUFOR co-ordinator Moira McGhee. - It is not the first report of
strange objects in the central western sky with Ms McGhee recounting
a "spate" of sightings about six years ago. "A Queensland couple
was travelling through Dubbo on the Newell Highway on their way
home from a holiday in Victoria," she said. "They were travelling
in a coach following behind a truck, and they were seated in the
front seat, in earshot of the UHF radio. "The truck driver said
'can you see that mate' and the bus driver replied &lsqu! o;I sure
can', and the couple looked up to see a giant glowing disc in the
sky, much larger than the shops it was passing over." Ms McGhee
is urging anyone with information about the recent glowing ball
or any strange sighting in the sky to come forward and report it
to INUFOR on (02) 4757 3848.
|John Hoppe and his wife started
in September of 2001, and since then, almost 80,000 people have
visited the site. The site has two goals: to further the awareness
of the UFO phenomena and to track the UFOs in our state's skies.
"An UFO-related incident
that occurred four years ago poses a troubling question whether
any kind of cooperation is possible between Iraqi dictator Saddam
Hussein and extraterrestrials," UFOlogist Joseph Trainor
declared in his review UFO Roundup (issue 51 of December 17, 2002).
"On December 16, 1998, during Operation Desert Fox against
Iraq, a video clip aired on CNN showed a UFO hovering over Baghdad;
it moved away to avoid a stream of tracer anti-aircraft fire.
At that time we all thought it was another UFO sighting, although
captured on videotape. But now, ufologists think it was much more
than a mere incident."
Jack Sarfatti reported that Friday evening, December 6, 2002
"someone called the Art Bell radio show, claimed his connection
with the military and informed that a UFO crashed in Iraq several
years ago. The USA is currently searching for any pretext to invade
Iraq. In fact, the USA is motivated by the greatest fear that
Saddam will reverse-engineer the crashed alien spacecraft."
It is allegedly said that the craft crashed during the Gulf War
(1990-1991), or more recently (probably in December 1998). This
became some kind of Iraq's Roswell. The USA is currently reverse-engineering
the Rosewell craft and fears that Saddam's scientists may become
even more successful than Americans in this or that sphere. It
was said that these researches may give Iraq a considerable advance
and even make it a leading super power.
Arab journalists failed either to confirm or to deny these rumors.
Aiasha al-Hatabi replied to Joseph Trainor that "he heard
nothing about a UFO crash in Iraq." In the words of Mohammed
Daud al-Hayyat, "there are talks about extraterrestrials
in Iraq, but nothing is said about any crash. It is rumored at
a market in Sulaimaniya, to the south of Zarzi, that aliens are
Saddam's guests. Where do they stay then? People mention some
underground base. But Saddam has a palace in this valley, an old
stronghold Qalaat-e-Julundi. Earlier it belonged to the royal
family. After the revolution, the government took possession of
the fortress, and now, like every palace in Iraq it is "a
summer residence" of Saddam Hussein. The fortress is mentioned
here for a very simple reason: it is practically impossible to
penetrate into it. The citadel stands on a hill surrounded with
ve! rtical precipices on three sides; the precipices plunge down
to the Little Zab river. It is said that Saddam lets aliens stay
Joseph Trainor came to a conclusion that something strange is
actually happening in the valley of the Little Zab river, but
it is not clear what exactly. It is not ruled out that Saddam
intentionally spreads these rumors so that to scare people away
from some important military object located in the old fortress
of Qalaat-e-Julundi. [...]
Nevertheless, it is not the only information about a UFO crash
in that area. Many years ago, on June 20, 1993, an information
was published on FIDOnet's MUFONET BBS NETWORK, it was a letter
of some Steve from Britain. He openly warned:
"The following information was published in Amateur Radio
Packet BBS on June 13 by some short-wave transmitter for spreading
all over the world. I know nothing about the man who published
the information, I also cannot say whether his information is
true. The man reported that some aircraft was found after it was
brought down by F-16 over Saudi Arabia during raids in Baghdad."
The information itself said: "A high-ranking source admitted
that US Air Force's F-16 brought down a UFO over Saudi Arabia
during the Operation Desert Storm, and five countries are trying
to conceal information about this fact. I don' t know details,
but it was some plane unknown to me. Saudis who were with me at
that moment, were scared so much that they asked American, British
and French investigators to come to the crash site immediately."
Colonel Petrokov said that at that moment he was on a visit to
Er Riyadh, where together with a Russian group he managed to examine
the crashed aircraft before American troops participating in Desert
Storm came to the crash site. He said:
"The aircraft was round and made of some material that I
never saw myself. About one third of the craft was torn out by
blasts of American missiles. Saudis didn't let us touch anything,
but we managed to see appliances, mechanisms and other things
that bewildered us absolutely."

On Thursday, March
27, 2003, an oblong luminous UFO hovered over the holy city of
Najaf (population 560,000), located about 100 kilometers (60 miles)
south of Baghdad. A photo showing the unknown object, with a G.I.
of the 3rd Brigade, 101st Airborne Division pointing at it with
his forefinger, appeared in the newspaper Euronews, according
to French ufologist Thierry Garnier.
"The journalist of Euronews does not mention anything about the
object and attributed the destruction of the (Allied) tank to
'an accidental implosion,' Thierry reported. French ufologist
Franck Marie said the image first appeared on the Euronews website
at 1:30 a.m. on Friday, March 28, 2003, "but it was gone by 2
UFO Roundup correspondent Mohammed Hajj al-Amdar stated, "The
UFO's appearance caused great excitement among the Shiites who
saw it. They said it had come from Allah's Gardens of Bliss to
protect the Tomb of Ali." (Najaf is a holy city to Shiite Muslims
because of the golden-domed mosque that stands over the grave
of Ali, the son-in-law of the prophet Mohammed. The mosque miraculously
escaped damage last week from the 101st Airborne's howitzer barrage.)
After more than 45 years of
study and investigations and visits to 19 document archives, I
am convinced that: a) Earth is being visited by alien spacecraft;
b) The subject of flying saucers represent a kind of Cosmic Watergate;
c) There are no good arguments against these conclusions; d) Visits
to Planet Earth and 55 years of government cover-up of crashed
saucers and alien bodies are, together, the biggest story of the
I take a clear-cut, unambiguous stand that some UFOs are alien
spacecraft but that some of these flying saucers are our own.
I am absolutely convinced that the United States government has
been withholding data about UFOs since at least 1947. That was
the year when at least two crashed flying saucers - alien wreckage
and bodies - were recovered in New Mexico. This does NOT mean
everybody in the government knows all about saucers and nobody
has talked. Security works on a need-to-know basis with compartmentalization
of very highly classified matters. Of course, some people have
talked, but without having any confirmatory classified documents
After arduous effort, I have received some of the 6,000 pages
of UFO-related documents that have been released - many of them
with eight words to a page and paragraph after paragraph blacked
out (until they graduated to whiteout several years later.) However,
this amount is but a small percentage of what exists in the archives
and files of various government agencies.
More than a decade ago, a Freedom of Information request submitted
to the CIA by Citizens Against UFO Secrecy elicited the response
that the CIA had no information about UFOs. An appeal was denied,
but a federal court action forced the CIA to do a document search.
Eventually it released about 900 pages of mildly interesting items.
Clearly this was the tip of the iceberg since none were classified
above "Secret" and since there were internal references to many
other documents that were not released.
The CIA has a history of doling out dribs and drabs in hope that
the requester will give up. Of greater importance was the release
of a list of 57 UFO documents found in the CIA files but originating
with a host of other agencies. Notable among the identified material
were 18 UFO documents originating with the National Security Agency.
But these documents could not be released by the CIA.
A Freedom of Information request was then made for the NSA documents,
but was denied on the grounds of national security. A subsequent
appeal was denied and federal court action followed. Finally,
a federal judge ruled that the NSA had to search its files. The
search yielded 239 UFO documents with 79 originating with other
agencies, including 23 from the CIA, which supposedly had already
done an exhaustive search. The NSA refused to release 156 of its
I then filed a Freedom of Information request for the 23 CIA
documents identified by the NSA file search. After 35 months the
CIA released just nine, which were all, believe it or not, press
abstracts of Eastern European newspaper articles about UFOs! It
refused to release its own 14 UFO documents on that list.
I appealed and - two years later - received tiny portions of
three documents with the rest being withheld.
The now-famous extraterrestrial encounters and cover up at Roswell,
N.M., have long been a focus of my work. I was the original civilian
investigator of the case and co-authored "Crash at Corona," the
definitive study of the Roswell incidents, and instigated the
Unsolved Mysteries episode on television about Roswell.
Some attacks on the legitimacy of the Roswell crash have been
made by people who accept the notion that Earth is indeed being
visited by alien spacecraft but do not believe that Roswell represents
the crash of such a vehicle. Much as I have tried to find good
reasons for rejecting the reality of the Roswell incident, despite
the enormous quantity of verbiage that has been published, I have
been unable to do so. [...]
There is no question that the U.S. government recovered two crashed
flying saucers and crews in the New Mexico desert in early July,
56 years ago. The government has been quite successful at withholding
the physical remnants and the real paper trail.
Yes, Virginia, there really is a Cosmic Watergate!
If we are not alone in the Universe,
why have we never picked up signals from an extraterrestrial civilisation
asks New Scientist in this weeks issue? Known as the Fermi paradox
after physicist Enrico Fermi, who first posed the question, this
long-standing puzzle remains one of the strongest arguments against
the existence of intelligent aliens.
But two physicists say they have come up with a solution. They
suggest a way in which aliens could send messages to each other
across space that not only disguises their locations but also
makes it impossible for a casual observer to even distinguish
the messages from background noise. Messages sent by this method
could be criss-crossing our Galaxy without us ever knowing...
Paul Shuch, director of the SETI League in New Jersey, also points
out that being able to disguise a sender's location would be extremely
useful for secure military communications here on Earth. "In a
few decades, when it's declassified, we may well find that such
a technique is already in use."
was observed in various parts of capital approximately from 5
pm to 7pm (Baku time). In the cloudless sky the large light stain
similar to an extended "drop of milk" has appeared.
The object was not similar to a cloud, aboard the plane or the
helicopter, as moved on a complex trajectory, Ekho newspaper report
says. At 18:35 "drop" suddenly started quickly to leave, was not
dissolved yet in the sky. The abnormal object has caused interest
not only the people of Baku, but also Azerbaijani experts.
Professor Elchin Khalilov, chief of a commission on the abnormal
phenomena at presidium of Academy of Sciences, shot the UFO on
amateur. Mr. Khalilov has noted that they had already started
to study the video.
"With similar UFO we face for the first time," he told to reporters.
"It is already unequivocally clear, that the fixed object is not
the plane, helicopter or other flying means. The UFO represents
enough, slightly extended form. Thus is abundantly clear, that
it is object of a technical origin."...
As Baku Today reported early this year, an UFO appeared on Baku
on January 2. Some scientists claim that UFOs were also observed
before and warned about natural disaster. Mr. Gasimov stated that
UFOs hinder the prediction of earthquakes and researches carried
out in this field.
"They don't want mankind reveal their secret. But there are some
facts stating that UFOs keep in touch with the scientists. Though
most approach these unserious, objects keep in touch with selected
persons by the means of Morse alphabet or telepathy signals and
transmit information related to the future," he told to journalists
in January of this year. It seems UFO will become "normal
guest" for Baku inhabitants soon.
LILBURN - Round red objects
about the size of silver dollars suddenly appeared and seemed
to scan three people traveling home in a Ford SUV one night last
They didn't see a mother ship hovering above them on a rural
stretch of highway called "Booger Bottom" near Greenville, Ga.
No little green men popped in to chat. The 25-second visit was
not your stereotypical sighting of an unidentified flying object.
It was certainly no laughing matter for a 50-year- old Tucker
man and his brother and sister-in-law from Warm Springs.
The 73-year-old female witness, who remains unnamed, went to
the police and the GBI for help, but they didn't want any part
of it. She called the National UFO Reporting Center and was hooked
up with the Mutual UFO Network of Georgia. MUFONGA doesn't turn
away people with odd stories. MUFONGA investigators use a scientific
method to eliminate publicity seekers and natural occurrences
from true unexplainable incidents. If they can't find a explanation
for what occurred, they at least want to record the phenomenon.
MUFONGA investigators Olivia Newton of Lilburn and Jim Clifford
of Lawrenceville were assigned the case.
Newton noted none of the witnesses gave them any reason to doubt
the account. "We watch for body language, any discrepancies,"
Newton recalled. "They looked at us right in the eye and were
very forthright. They said, 'surely you have heard of this before.'"
In her five years of investigating UFO reports, Newton had heard
about a woman being paralyzed while a hovering object came toward
her skylight and a 2-year-old boy who was being stalked by a possible
spirit. "Most of them turn out to have natural explanations,"
Newton said, adding that Venus is often mistaken for a spaceship.
Newton had never heard a story like this one.
"They all said it was not of this world. They felt it was intelligent.
They felt they had sought them out for the sole purpose of scanning
them. Scan. That was the word they used," Newton said. The trio
was upset by the experience. The woman insisted they learn what
the red objects were.
"She said, 'I've got to know what this is. Are they coming back
after us? What if they cart us off?'" recalled Newton. When Newton
and Clifford met with the Tucker man at a local Starbucks to discuss
the case, he was visibly shaken, she said. He too refused to have
his name used. The witnesses called the approximate 50 red objects
that appeared inside the car "lights" but described them as solid
to Newton. They said they only occurred on their bodies until
they vanished instantly. The brother of the Tucker man told investigators
he saw a red swirling object next to the vehicle on the driver's
side before the lights appeared. He was sitting in the back seat
facing his brother, Newton said. The Tucker man's testimony on
the NURORC's Web site at www.UFOcenter.com said, "The floor board
again was red hue as it was in the back seat. I looked out the
window and over the dash board onto the hood and did not see any
activity as was being awesomely and erratically displayed in the
front and back seat."
According to the investigation so far, a train was not traveling
on the nearby tracks. No airplanes were flying over the Greenville
skies that night, Newton said.
Newton and Clifford walked around the area. No houses were close
enough to the road to reflect light into the car. Newton said
they couldn't find an area where practical jokers could have hidden
and focused red lights constantly on the people for 25 seconds
as the vehicle traveled 35 mph.
To help solve the mystery, Newton plans to seek a geologist's
opinion and look into the origins of why that area is called Booger
Locals told her the first name was once used for the "Boogey
man," and the area was called that to scare off government officials
searching for moonshiners.
Newton wants to make sure the area was not named for an earlier
incident, which might be similar to what the witnesses experienced.
Cape Town - Is it a star or
is it an unidentified flying object?
People living in the Boland were asking this question on Tuesday
after observing an unusual light phenomenon in the Worcester area.
Many people phoned regional radio stations with the news that
they had seen a UFO...
A man named Deon was travelling on the N1 towards Worcester and
phoned to say he saw a cigar-shaped UFO right below the moon.
It was apparently gliding above the clouds with a smaller but
very bright light alongside. He said he had been looking at the
lights for quite a while and it was most definitely not an aircraft.
Cape Town - The unidentified
flying object seen hovering in the sky on Tuesday, could have
been two planets.
Numerous listeners telephoned Kfm 94.5 on Tuesday morning to
say they saw a UFO at about 06:45 hovering in the sky above Worcester.
One listener told breakfast show DJ, Nic Marais, that he was
driving on the N1 and saw a cigar-shaped UFO gliding above the
clouds just below the moon in the Worcester area.
Doctor Dave Laney of the planetarium in Cape Town said on Wednesday
that the shape of the UFO could indicate that the listeners saw
the Mercury and Venus planets.
Laney said Mercury was on the right-hand side of Venus on the
morning of May 27. Both were directly below the moon.
"Fast moving clouds could easily create the illusion that objects
are moving in the sky. If Venus and Mercury were glowing mistily
through the clouds, it could create the illusion of a cigar-shaped
object", said Laney.
Laney said it was impossible that the alleged UFO could be an
iridium torch. This phenomenon occurs when one of the panels of
the numerous communication satellites circling the earth, reflects

As Baku Today already reported last month, on May 19 at 17:00
the inhabitants of Baku witnessed an unusual flying object in
By Emin Allahverdiyev
It did not look like a plane
or other type of vehicle. It appeared right in the center of the
city. According to witnesses, the flying object was hanging in
the sky for over two hours, it was white and stretched.
Never before had alien flying objects appear at such an early
time and never before were they observed with by so many people.
This appearance of the UFO had a great impact on the city and
rumors began to spread all over. Some of these rumors say that
it was not a UFO, but something else… but what exactly,
nobody could tell.
The head of the space seismology sector and member-correspondent
of International energy-informational academy for the UN, Fuad
Gasimov, commented on this recently in a local newspaper. Mr.
Gasimov confirmed the fact, that the flying object that appeared
in the sky on May 19 was truly an apparatus from another planet.
"This fact is not surprising. For a long period of time,
all facts about UFO's were being denied," he said. "As
usual, they were denied at the authoritative level, by famous
scientists, who, by the way, were not scientists in fields relating
UFO researcher George Filer
said the number of sightings has remained fairly consistent for
the last few months, but May had some of the most unusual encounters.
For instance, folks in Winnebago, Wis., reported seeing what
looked like three flying Spaghettios hovering over Lake Winnebago
on May 15 and May 20 and a trio of flying green cigars was spotted
running amuck around North- ridge, Calif., on May 7.
Still, the most bizarre UFO sighting occurred in rural Ohio,
where a group of 30 stick figures, each about 3-feet tall, broke
up a wild party.
Filer admits these cases sound almost unbelievable but that won't
sway him from doing further research because, in his words, "the
strange ones are more likely to be true."
A group of investigators from
the Victorian section of the Australian UFO Research Network will
compile the footage with the aim of attracting an international

JEDDAH, 9 June 2003 - An unidentified
flying object fell to earth in the southern Jizan region last
Monday and experts believe that it could be part of a spy plane
that invaded Saudi airspace.
Witnesses told Al-Watan daily that the object looked like a flying
saucer and radiated light. A number of people in Arraith town,
about 220 km northeast of Jizan, watched the strange object fall
at about 9 a.m. on Monday.
The fall of the object sent shockwaves through the area and frightened
cattle. People ran away from the object and observed it from a
Abdul Rahman Al-Osaimi, governor of Arraith, told the Arabic
daily that he visited the area where the object had fallen, adding
that it had frightened the residents.
"The object is not big, but it scares people,"the
Informed sources told Al-Watan that security officers visited
the site to inspect the object and interview witnesses.
If the UFO turned out to be a spy plane, it could bring back
memories of stories of flying saucers frequently found during
the Cold War period. The United States recorded some 850 flying
objects crashed on its territory in those days.
Salman Al-Raithy, a resident of Arraith, told the daily that
he had watched the object flying at a low altitude and then fall
on the ground.
Wadi Amoud in Arraith saw a number of strange incidents over
the past years.
It witnessed the emergence of poisonous carbon water from a well
in the area, which the superstitious used to treat diseases, forcing
authorities to cover the well. An old mass grave with the remains
of people killed in battles was also found in the area.
A group which researches sightings
of UFOs believes there may be a link to the Dudley earthquake
Stourbridge-based UFO Research West Midlands today warned there
could be a repeat of the earthquake at the end of July.
The warning follows research into a reported UFO sighting at
the epicentre of the earthquake, recorded at 5.0 on the Richter
Scale on September 23 last year, in Brick Kiln Lane, Gornal, two
Uform member Peter Kimberley said Wombourne resident David Rose
contacted the group after he photographed a strange object in
the sky near Wombourne last July.
And a photo he took of buzzards at Kingswinford Railway in March
had a mysterious rod-like object in the foreground.
"We are now intrigued to see if anything happens around the latter
end of July," said Mr Kimberley.
The observation of the phenomenon
was rather unique, as the object was filmed by several cameramen
from all the sides
On the night of June 20, citizens of the Russian cities of Yekaterinburg
and Pervouralsk observed an unidentified flying object high in
the skies. Witnesses describe the phenomenon as something resembling
a bright beautiful comet.
The strange object was moving underneath clouds. The UFO brightly
lit the night sky and disappeared. However, many of the witnesses
managed to take pictures of the phenomenon and filmed it.
For the time being, neither local astronomers nor emergency situation
services have commented upon the phenomenon. It is not clear what
effect the flying object exerted upon the witnesses. According
to UralPolit.ru, the Air Defense hasn't issued any comments upon
the event yet.
In fact, the observation of the phenomenon was rather unique,
as the object was filmed by several cameramen from all the sides.
|Cloud-to-Earth lightning bolts
are a well-known natural electrical occurrence. Now scientists have
discovered and photographed for the first time enormous, 90-kilometer-high
(55-mile), luminous, electric discharges that deliver large quantities
of current from thunderstorms to the edges of the Earth's atmosphere.
The Sci Fi Channel is campaigning
to persuade the US government to be more forthcoming and aggressive
in investigating UFO sightings.
The television network has hired a Washington lobbyist, received
support from John Podesta, a former chief of staff for Bill Clinton,
and sponsored a symposium on interstellar travel.
The network will premiere a documentary, Out of the Blue, on
Tuesday that methodically lays out an argument that there is something
It is very, very tough for people to take this subject seriously,"
said Ed Rothschild, a lobbyist for the Washington firm PodestaMattoon.
We thought the only way it was going to be seriously addressed
is to have serious people talk about it, scientists."
George W Bush says there is
mounting evidence to suggest there is alien life on other planets.
The US President used his budget document to declare that there
may be "space aliens" to be discovered.
A passage entitled, "Where are the Real Space Aliens?", states
that important scientific research over the last 10 years indicates
that proof of "habitable worlds" in outer space is becoming more
of a reality. [...]
The document says: "Perhaps the notion that 'there's something
out there' is closer to reality than we have imagined."

AZTEC, N.M. -- Were you looking
into the New Mexico sky in 1947 or 1948? Did you see little green
men or the smoldering wreckage of a strange ship? A pair of researchers
trying to uncover the secrets of two purported UFO crashes wants
to pick your brain.
Stanton Friedman, a ufologist and nuclear physicist, was the
first person to investigate a farmer's field in Roswell where
many believe an alien spacecraft crash-landed in 1947. He's also
gathering facts from a lesser-known purported UFO 1948 crash in
Hart Canyon north of Aztec.
Friedman is hunting for people who may have witnessed either
craft's flight or wreckage, but he knows time is running out.
Norway's most renowned spot
for mysterious aerial sightings, the village of Hessdalen in South
Troendelag, is experiencing a dearth of sightings. The valley
community's measuring station has registered 120-130 unidentifiable
light phenomena since 1998, but only one in the past year, newspaper
Strand said that they cannot explain the sharp drop in sightings
but believes one key factor is technical problems connected to
newly installed camera equipment.
"We are now in the process of reinstalling the equipment and
then we believe that registered sightings will pick up again,"
IDAHO FALLS, Idaho -- Wander
into the front yard of John Andersen's manufacturing plant, and
you might think you are in a NASA warehouse or a CIA surveillance
Andersen Manufacturing Inc. of Idaho Falls makes dishes, Andersen
admits, with uses that exceed his wildest imaginations.
Some of the largest ones -- shiny aluminum alloy dishes, 21 feet
in diameter -- are manufactured for some scientists in California
who are scanning the skies in search of radio signals from aliens.
The Search for Extra- terrestrial Intelligence, SETI, is the
official name, and the scientists are buying an army of these
giant radio telescopes from Andersen. In fact, Andersen's products
play such a crucial role in the ambitious program that his company
has gained some national publicity.
The dishes, custom-ordered by SETI, will eventually form the
Allen Telescope Array. The project is named after its chief sponsor,
Microsoft Corp. co-founder Paul Allen. ..
Precision dishes are the biggest sector in Andersen's booming
business. He has recently started making a dish the same size
as those for the SETI for NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. It
will be used in communicating with outer-space exploration vehicles.
Meandering his way between machinery and several half-finished
SETI dishes, Andersen is an enthusiastic believer in extraterrestrials
and has full confidence in his products.
Taipei, July 7 (CNA) A white,
oval unidentified flying object described as being the size of
a basketball was sighted and videotaped by a Chiayi woman in southern
Taiwan Sunday, and a "UFO specialist" did not rule out the idea
that it could have been an object from outer space. [...]
It was the third reported UFO sighting over the past week in
Taiwan, Lu said, claiming that the tape "could not be a hoax."
If you need convincing the truth
is out there, what better authority than the British constabulary?
In UFO Magazine (July), Gary Heseltine, detective constable No
1877 of the British transport police, presented the results of
a year's work compiling police officers' observations of unidentified
"The last 12 months have literally flown by," recounted DC Heseltine.
But his feet were firmly on the ground as he presented a database
bulging with encounters of the first, second and third kind -
a total of 84 incidents, spanning the period from 1950 to 2002,
involving more than 200 police officers. [...]
A bright flash in Tucson's eastern
sky last night left authorities puzzled.
A few callers reported the flash about 8:45 p.m. to the Pima
County Sheriff's Department, a dispatcher said.
Sheriff's deputies and the Tucson Airport Authority were unaware
of the source.

A Triangular Problem
Sightings of "impossible" craft in the sky are universal. They
are also universally ignored. Ignored, at least, by the official
channels and sources of power in our society.
This is nothing new -- students of the UFO reality have always
known this. Nor is the blanket of denial and disinformation associated
with this topic anything unique. I have howled into the wind about
this many times, decrying the inability and unwillingness of our
mainstream media to discuss an entire range of topics. Yes, this
is old news.
As strange as UFOs are, I often think that the silence of official
channels is more surreal than the objects themselves. How can
it be possible that so many thousands (millions?) of witnesses
continue to be ignored?
One subset of the phenomenon, however, has broken through to
the mainstream. Perhaps we should say -- ahem -- the 'fringes'
of the mainstream. These are the infamous triangular craft. America's
mainstream culture, ever rigid and narrow, yet acknowledges from
time to time that such things exist. Frankly, it would be hard
not to. The reports are simply too many and too clear. [...]
I received one photo the other day from the witness who took the
video clip of this strange object. Today I received three more
and was given permission to have them posted. If there is anyone
who is interested in knowing more about these images, please contact
Brian at HBCC UFO Research and I will pass along all messages
to the witness. Here is the report:
Here's an interesting image from the footage - what do you make
On the afternoon of July 6 , 2003 my husband noticed a gleam way
over head. It looked odd, so I went and got my camcorder w/500
digital zoom . Couldn't see what it was until I zoomed in.
I recorded the most awesome 3 minutes of what was defintely an
unidentified object. We looked through frame-by-frame and found
some 'brow-raising' images.
I am a 31 year old skeptic and don't care for politics or red
tape. I am the type of person that looks to the logical explanations
in all 'unexplained' from paranormal to the unexplained - but
this footage is like nothing I know which is on record to date.
It isn't just a a sliver ball darting around - the footage has
captured more detail than that; the object is defintely not a
I was in the Navy, have been on carriers/sub-tenders, I have
seen aircraft ... stealth bomber ... etc. But I have never seen
anything like this! And the footage shows (I was taping by a tree)
you can see the object moving as the leaves in the same frame
remain still. Also taped the moon to show I did not mistake the
object for 'swamp gas reflecting off a weather balloon causing
steam to rise in a dioxide mist.'
Let me assure you this footage is true.
This footage is so solid I am willing to sell all rights to it.
I realize many are hoaxed projects - experts can sniff out a fake
crop circle a mile away. I do feel this footage will be talked
from all aspects of the UFO pros & cons for years to come.

[...] A mysterious flying object
was seen to hover and reflect light for more than a minute before
lifting off into the sky towards the Castlemilk and Glasgow area.
The sighting comes only two months after The Reformer reported
that the Glasgow UFO Research Organisation (GUFORO) were still
investigating reports from three people of a similar object seen
in the area last summer.
The recent sighting was made by a medical professional in his
30s, who lives Cathkin.
He is now calling for anyone else who may have seen anything
to report what they saw. [...]
A Black Country UFO research
group has had a big increase in reports of unexplained lights
in the sky since the start of the hot spell. Stourbridge-based
Uform says it is getting reports every day of sightings of unexplainable
lights and objects in the sky.
Group member Yvonne South said there appeared to be increasing
activity in the "Himley Triangle" around the epicentre of the
Dudley earthquake in September last year. And two unusual events
were reported in Dudley on Monday and Brierley Hill on Tuesday
It was spring of
this year, in March. We were on the Columbia Plateau not too far
from the Tri Cities, Wa. / In Walla Walla County. About three
p.m. / There were 2 of us at this event when we were buzzed by
a black chopper,flying fast and low, so we ducked into the shadows
I snapped a quick photo offhand.
We were visiting a sacred site (Native American) when the black
chopper came upon us, very swiftly. They came from the south,
headed North toward Spokane. We were there representing the Confederated
Tribes and NAGPRA.
So, the fliers were there, flanking the copter. I saw your other
material you posted which sparked my interest further, hence even
though this happened in Wash state, I send it along to you anyhow.
Permission was granted to me to post the picture. Thank you very
much to the witness who sent this along to me.
I also sent this report and photo along to a United States UFO

Little did Socorro patrolman
Lonnie Zamora know that a single incident recorded almost 40 years
ago would change his life, and the city's, forever.
Around 5:45 p.m. on April 24, 1964, Zamora was in his patrol
vehicle in hot pursuit of a speeder when he heard something that
sounded like an explosion.
The five-year veteran patrolman stopped chasing the fleeing vehicle
to investigate what he thought might have been the detonation
of a shack of dynamite.
Zamora followed a narrow, gravel road beside a small arroyo,
and radioed in that he was going to check on what looked like
it might have been an overturned vehicle.
He drove further on the gravel road and then exited his patrol
vehicle to get a better look.
What Zamora described next has been chronicled and analyzed by
UFO experts around the world. Most reports refer to an egg-shaped
object supported by legs, and the presence of two beings described
as children or small adults.
A loud roar and the flash of a bluish flame sent Zamora to the
ground for cover before he jumped up and ran to the other side
of the gravel road.
Zamora heard a whirring sound and watched the object rise out
of the arroyo; the "legs" he had seen earlier were no longer in
Not long after the object's disappearance, he was joined by State
Police Sgt. Sam Chavez who had overheard Zamora's radio dispatch.
The two officers began to scour the area for clues.
And thus began an investigation into one of the most widely circulated
UFO stories ever, one that propelled tiny Socorro into the center
of the unidentified flying object universe. [...]

reputation as B.C.'s UFO capital is creating a new kind of tourism
boom in the region.
Curious travellers from across North America are inquiring about
the tourism facilities in communities across Highway 16, including
Terrace, says a UFO researcher based in Houston, B.C.
"You would be surprised just how many emails I get over the months
requesting information for our areas," says Brian Vike, editor
of Canadian Communicator, a magazine specializing in the paranormal,
and director of HBCC-UFO
Earlier this year, Terrace cracked the top 10 in a national UFO
survey, earning third place, just ahead of Houston, where Vike
operates a toll-free UFO hotline so he can collect and investigate
Terrace recorded the third highest number of UFO sightings in
the country last year, bringing national and international attention
to the region, Vike says.
The resulting publicity means the northwest is rapidly emerging
as one of the best places to see UFOs in Canada.
Savvy tourists know they're more likely to see a flying saucer
than the elusive Kermode bear, the white form of a black bear
that is the city's official symbol. [...]
Vike says 2003 is shaping up to be another record year for UFO
sightings in the skies over Terrace, where 25 sightings were recorded
last year, suggesting more national and international attention
could be on its way.
cameraman spotted flashing lights in the sky
Strange flashing lights above the sky in Worcestershire has caused
speculation the county was visited by aliens.

RESIDENTS in Croxley reported
sightings of a UFO which circled above them for ten minutes before
vanishing without trace.
Mervin Harris, from Forbuoys Newsagents on Baldwins Lane, Croxley,
