Chicago phenomenon rekindles UFO debate

On Jan. 2, the Chicago Tribune did something extraordinary for a major newspaper: It ran a UFO story on its front page. The newspaper reported that in the late afternoon of Nov. 7, 2006, a gray, egg-shaped object was observed hovering over Gate C17 at Chicago O'Hare International Airport.

The object was unusually low (below the 1,900-foot overcast ), remained visible for several minutes, and was observed by several mechanics and various United Airlines ground personnel. The object eventually disappeared straight up through the overcast by reportedly "punching a hole" through the clouds.

Observer descriptions of the object are remarkably consistent. It had no wings or lights. Its surface appeared metallic but with a soft luster that shone "like a pearl." Several witnesses reported a haze around the bottom of the object akin to heat waves off a hot road. One witness in an airport parking lot said that the object appeared to be spinning counter-clockwise. She also said that a small crowd of fellow observers were pointing up at the object and that several were taking pictures with digital cameras.

US: UFO Sighting Reports - Jan 26 - Feb 9

Here are some of the most interesting sighting reports that have come my way this past week.

Arizona-01-09-07-Witness was driving east when he saw lights low in the sky. Witness believes that the lights were over Gold Canyon, AZ. The lights were in a straight line, with the far left light coming on and going off. As we know there has been a wave of new sightings over Arizona lately, and this may well be the same phenomena that was captured on video recently.

Arizona-02-09-07-Exactly one month after previous report, a family was walking when again to the east an object was seen. They thought at first it was a fireball, but then it split into two objects, and stopped in mid-air, and split again. Finally, the objects merged into one, and continued until they disappeared.

One week after Chile's Armed Forces released photos and videos of UFO activity around the country, Chile's mainstream media has once again gone extraterrestrial with various Chupacabra sightings reported throughout the country.

Dozens of Triangular UFOs Seen Over Warsaw

On 20th January 2007 between 1 and 2 am. about 17 unidentified triangular objects appeared in the sky above Polish capital city district of Sluzec. According to the witness, Mrs. Jolanta Z. [53], triangular objects scattered in the sky remained in her view for over an hour, slowly rising up and finally disappearing.

At about 1:15 am. the woman living in a block [in vicinity of a airport Okecie] in Mokotow district, Mrs. Jolanta Z., woke up to smoke a cigarette. At one moment her attention was drawn by a light visible in the sky. The woman who is accustomed with view of landing planes after a while noticed strange behavior of the object that seemed to be suspended in the sky.

When she approached the window, she was amazed with a sight of a dozen of triangular objects. The woman claims that at first she was able to see 17 or 18 identical objects in shape of isosceles triangles scattered in the sky [with their "beaks" pointing eastward]. One of them [located in the southern part of the sky] was noticeably bigger [the witness estimated that it was in dimension of 3 smaller objects].

Global team searches for UFOs

Larimer County man directs a global team of 400 investigators who look into reports of UFOs

Bellvue - James Carrion will often look up at the stars shining over his hilltop home near this Larimer County community and wonder who or what is watching.

"I think they know I'm looking for them," said the 41-year-old former Army intelligence officer.

Carrion is international director of the Mutual UFO Network, one of the largest groups in the world dedicated to examining sightings of unidentified flying objects and otherworldly phenomena.

FOIA declassified documents - A Treasure Trove

The linked website archives a collection of documents, some of them were formerly secret or confidential, they were all declassified because of the Freedom Of Information Act.

The Freedom of Information Act (F.O.I.A) is an American law that allows members of the public to obtain copies of classified documents by having all or parts of the documents declassified by order of a federal judge. The judge may refuse the declassification of a document if it is necessary for the document to remain classified because it affects national security. At least, that is in theory. In practice it has been very unreliable, if one group requests for a set of documents and gets them, it does not necessarily mean that a second group will be able to get them. If the government denies they have got the documents that you are looking for, they may not be telling the truth. It has been known for a government agency to deny that it has ANY documents on an incident yet release it some months later.

Debunkery: The Reality of Recent UFO Sightings

America has seen a spate of alleged UFO sightings in recent weeks and months. Eyewitnesses in Arizona, Illinois, Arkansas, North Carolina, and other states have reported seeing mysterious lights and objects in the sky.

Among the sightings:
  • In November 2006, United Airlines employees reported seeing a large, dark, "saucer-shaped" craft over a terminal at Chicago's O'Hare airport. It hovered for a while, then suddenly rose and shot up into the sky.
  • In January 2007, multiple eyewitnesses reported seeing a formation of mysterious bright lights in the sky over western Arkansas, moving too slowly to be aircraft.
  • Similar lights were reported this week over Phoenix.

Strange Sightings In North Carolina Skies

Are the makings of a Sci-Fi movie happening in the Piedmont-Triad?

There have been strange reports about flying objects in the skies -- and some people think they're UFOs.

WXII 12's Nicole Ducouer spoke to a Kernersville man who said he captured an object on his cell phone.

Jamarus Crews said he was sitting in his Farmwood Garden Apartment when he saw something in the sky. It had lots of lights and made no noise, he said.

Wilkes County's Charles Miller said he also caught an image of an object.

Comment: Sure, people are seeing all kinds of strange lights in the sky recently all over the world, but don't worry - they aren't UFOs, they're just a whole lot of bolides that are supposed to be rarely seen...
