Experienced Pilots Spot Mile Wide UFO Over Channel Islands!

UFO sightings are being investigated by the Ministry of Defence.

Experienced Aurigny pilot Captain Ray Bowyer's reports of massive UFOs off the coast of Alderney have been corroborated by a Blue Islands pilot en route to Jersey.

Two experienced airline pilots on separate flights saw something up to a mile wide off the coast of Alderney on Monday afternoon. Surprisingly, Jersey radar equipment did not pick up the object, although an air traffic controller said he had received simultaneous reports from the Aurigny and Blue Islands pilots.

Aurigny's Captain Ray Bowyer, 50, said he saw the strange object during a flight from Southampton.

He spotted a bright-yellow light 10 miles west of Alderney while his plane was about 30 miles from the island and at 4,000ft.
'It was a very sharp, thin yellow object with a green area. It was 2,000ft up and stationary,' he said.

British Pilot, Passengers Say They Saw UFOs

Galactic Visitor, Or Greenhouse Reflection?

The BBC says a commercial airline pilot reported seeing two unidentified flying objects in the sky near Guernsey.

The pilot reportedly estimated the bright yellow flat discs were twice the size of a Boeing 737, and spotted them Monday, 12 to 15 miles north east of the island.

"This is not something you see every day of the week -- it was pretty scary," pilot Ray Bowyer said, adding he originally thought the sun was reflecting off greenhouses in Guernsey.

John Spencer, deputy chairman of the British UFO Research Association, says pilot UFO sightings have been reported since the 1940s, and generate excitement because pilots are trained observers. In Monday's case, the sightings were verified by passengers and other pilots in the area.

A Mystery Wrapped in a Strange Black Rock is Chunk from Outer Space or Just a Piece of Poppycock?

Unidentified flying discs. Secret military missions. Government cover-ups.

The story Philip Lipson and Charlette LeFevre have been researching for years has almost all the elements of a made-for-TV movie.

As the story goes, a government employee swore he saw flying saucers three days after a Tacoma man said similar UFOs spewed metal and lava onto his boat. There was even a man in black.

A witness later recanted his statement - some say out of fear - after a military plane supposedly transporting classified debris exploded into flames.

"You don't want to know how complicated and bizarre this is," said LeFevre, who, with Lipson, runs the Seattle Museum of the Mysteries on Capitol Hill.

Possible alien stone found near Seattle

University of Washington research engineer Bill Beaty is set to test a piece of stone purported to have fallen from an alien spacecraft 60 years ago.

Philip Lipson and Charlette LeFevre, who run the Seattle Museum of the Mysteries, have been researching for years a story that began in June 1947 when a government employee swore he saw flying saucers three days after a Tacoma man said similar UFOs had dropped metal and lava onto his boat, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported Monday.

"You don't want to know how complicated and bizarre this is," said LeFevre.

Police seek clues on 'ghost ship'

Forensic police on Saturday began examining a deserted catamaran found drifting off Australia's Great Barrier Reef -- with the sails up, engine running and food on the table -- for clues about the three missing crew members.

The three men were last seen Sunday leaving the northeastern town of Airlie Beach. On Wednesday, a patrol plane spotted their 12-meter (40-foot) catamaran drifting aimlessly, its headsail battered and torn, some 150 kilometers (93.21 miles) offshore.

When rescue crews finally boarded the vessel, named Kaz II, early Friday, they found the engines running, computers charging, even food and cutlery laid out on the table -- but no crew.

The mast was damaged and the headsail had been shredded, but no distress call had been made.

Police launched a massive sea and air rescue Friday spanning a stretch of coast around 700 nautical miles long, but found no trace of the missing men.

Baffled by strange lights in England; Dozens of witnesses see hundreds of triangular formations

News Shopper readers have been left baffled by strange orange lights they claim to have seen in the sky last night.

People living in the Sidcup and Bexleyheath area claim the lights moving slowly through the sky at around 9.30pm.

Descriptions of the amounts of lights seen differ from several to at least a hundred.

News Shopper has received eye-witness reports claiming the lights were moving in formation. There is reportedly no evidence the lights were being beamed from the ground.

One reader, by e-mail, said: "I live in the Sidcup area and tonight we saw at least a hundred orange lights floating across the sky, following each other in formation."

Comment: Other witnesses have left comments on the News Shopper web page.

The crop circle near Devizes

It measures a huge 333ft across and appeared over the weekend in a field of striking yellow oil seed rape.

While crop formations have been known in April, most usually start being discovered in early May and are smaller affairs.

It is located beneath Oliver's Castle, a hilltop archaeological site near Devizes, famous among crop circle devotees as the spot video footage supposedly showed a crop circle being made by two balls of light.

All the vessel's sails were up, although one was badly torn.

Emergency services in Australia have launched a search for the three-man crew of a yacht found drifting off the North Queensland coast.

The vessel was found with its engine running, and a table laid for dinner, but there were no signs of any people.

An air and sea rescue operation has been launched to retrace the yacht's voyage, and pinpoint the search area.

The three-crew members are thought to have set sail for Townsville from Airlie Beach on Sunday.

The 12m (40 foot) catamaran was spotted by a helicopter on Wednesday, but a rescue team only reached the boat on Friday, and confirmed that there was no one aboard.

Ohio residents say mystery animals roaming woods resemble goats, sheep, deer

Chesterland, Ohio - Is it a goat? Is it a sheep? No, it's a ... what is that thing?

Wildlife experts haven't been able to positively identify at least three animals spotted roaming the woods in Chester Township, about 30 kilometres east of Cleveland, over the past few months. "We're not exactly sure what they are," said Allen Lea of the Ohio Division of Wildlife, which has reviewed photos taken by a resident. "But they're definitely not a native species. They're not where they belong."

Police have received calls from residents offering varying descriptions, with possible IDs including bighorn sheep and wild goat.

Sal LaPuma, an avid outdoorsman, said he recently got within 9 metres of one of the animals before it ran away.

"The moment I saw it, I knew it was out of place," he said.

Erebus crash blamed for Antarctica 'ghosts'

A supernatural experience in Antarctica on Friday the 13th has left a winter worker convinced of the existence of ghosts on the frozen continent.

American Allie Barden was sent to work in a stores building at McMurdo Station, the United States base near New Zealand's Scott Base, and knew it was empty because it was padlocked from outside when she arrived.

"As soon as I entered, something was weird," she said.

"I took a couple of steps in (and) the hair on the top of my head stood on end - footsteps upstairs; undeniably footsteps. A slow cadence of footsteps.

"I froze. It went from the back of the building to the front."
