20 UFO Sightings Reported In NE Ohio In 2 Years

Experts say the Cleveland area is a hotbed for UFOs.

For many, the idea is a joke. But others are not so sure. However, one local group has absolutely no doubt -- in their view, we are not alone.

NewsChannel5 began with the premise that UFOs are out there. After all, if people see something in the sky and don't know what it is, then by definition it remains "unidentified," at least until it is identified.

Aaron Clark is one of many UFO investigators and a member of the Cleveland Ufology Project.

The group is not new. It's been around since 1952.

NewsChannel5 reported that Cleveland has the most UFO investigators in the world.

Couple See Dancing UFOs in Alberta, Canada

A Whitehorse couple are so convinced they saw unidentified flying objects that they called the RCMP and the local air traffic control tower.

''I have never seen anything remotely like this in my life,'' says the woman, who wants to remain anonymous out of concerns over how the public would react to her experience.

''It moved so fast, over a great distance, so quickly. I have never seen anything like it in my life.''

The couple were at home on the couch in their living watching TV at about 6:30 p.m. when the man directed his partner's attention to where he saw four bright lights ''dancing'' over Grey Mountain.

Canada: Possible sasquatch sighting - British Columbia man sees 'the beast'

A Cranbrook resident says he was just beginning his early-morning shift as a sand truck/snowplow driver for a highways maintenance contractor when he saw what he now calls "the beast".

Gord Johnson says he was barely out of the Cranbrook city limits, heading west, when his headlights illuminated what he thought was a human figure some 150 metres away.

"It was standing in the ditch on the right side of the road, sort of bent over. It was dark and cold and too early in the morning for anybody to be out picking bottles or something, so I thought whoever it was might be hurt or sick, so I slowed down."

As Johnson drew nearer, the figure in the ditch straightened, then turned and began to move towards his truck while remaining in the ditch.

Maryland, US: F-16s Pursue Unknown Craft Over Region

For Renny Rogers, it was strange enough that military jets were flying low over his home in Waldorf in the middle of the night. It was what he thinks he saw when he headed outside to look early yesterday that floored him.

"It was this object, this light-blue object, traveling at a phenomenal rate of speed," Rogers said. "This Air Force jet was right behind it, chasing it, but the object was just leaving him in the dust. I told my neighbor, 'I think those jets are chasing a UFO.' "

Military officials confirm that two F-16 jets from Andrews Air Force Base were scrambled early yesterday after radar detected an unknown aircraft in area airspace. But they scoff at the idea that the jets were chasing a strange and speedy, blue unidentified flying object.

"We had a track of interest, so we sent up some aircraft," said Maj. Douglas Martin, a spokesman for the North American Aerospace Defense Command in Colorado, which has responsibility for defending U.S. airspace. "Everything was fine in the sky, so they returned home."

Book Review: The Haunted Universe by D. Scott Rogo




I picked up this book to read because I had recently learned that there is a journalist looking for clues in the murder of D. Scott Rogo and I suggested to her that there might be clues in Rogo's own writings that might point to who may have wanted him dead. Was he writing anything that might be considered threatening to any agency or organization? That was the question in my mind as I began to read.

In The Haunted Universe, Rogo starts off telling us how conservative he is and how he has learned how the mind can deceive. Too bad he doesn't apply this principle to himself. But, I will come to that.

Rogo writes that, "To date, parapsychologists have only been concerned with the study of two groups of phenomena: extrasensory perception and psychokinesis."

New Mexico, US: Mutilated bull: No blood, no clues

Robert Allen wasn't surprised when the story of the cattle mutilation last October in the small town of Kanjilon, New Mexico was buried way inside the local paper. After all, the hoopla over cattle mutilations - which were a big subject back in the 1980s - has died down in the last decade or so. The problem is that while the newsworthiness of the subject has died down, cattle mutilations have not.

Mysterious Chunk Of Ice Falls To Earth

Silverdale, Washington -- According to a construction crew working on a Silverdale apartment complex, several chunks of ice fell from the sky, pelting the site late Wednesday.

"This is a piece that came off that hit and landed right over there -- what's left of it, about a third of it maybe," witness Bill Clark said.

The chunks of ice fell from the sky, punching a hole in the roof of an awning and another tearing the gutter off the side of a building.

"One hit right on this roof and went down through and caused that hole there, and then we had one explode up in that parking lot, and one exploded down in our lower parking lot," witness Kyle Harmia said.

UFOs over Lewiston, Michigan; Air Force sends jets to intercept

Claims of UFOs flying over Lewiston Wednesday night were quickly discredited by officials who said they were conducting military training.

Area resident Jeff Nickert, who called the Herald Times at approximately 5:30 a.m. Thursday, is not convinced.

"It kinda freaked me out," said the Lewiston man in a telephone interview Thursday. "I never saw anything like this in my life."

Nickert explained seeing "electricity floating through the air" or "a mass of energy floating through the air" when he returned home from work at approximately 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Comment: Sounds familiar. Relevant quote: ""I never saw anything like this in my life."

From 2002:
'For Renny Rogers, it was strange enough that military jets were flying low over his home in Waldorf in the middle of the night. It was what he thinks he saw when he headed outside to look early yesterday that floored him.

"It was this object, this light-blue object, traveling at a phenomenal rate of speed," Rogers said. "This Air Force jet was right behind it, chasing it, but the object was just leaving him in the dust. I told my neighbor, 'I think those jets are chasing a UFO.' " ... "It looked like a shooting star with no trailing mist," he said. "I've never seen anything like it."'

Canada: Deaths raise spectre of haunted house; Thai workers refuse to return to house where two countrymen died

When Phunsak Phathong died while sleeping in a Blenheim farmhouse, his fellow migrant workers from Thailand spent several weeks bunking together in the living room.

The first night the unnerved Thai workers returned to their own rooms, they awoke to find Ulai Buapatcha -- who was sleeping in Phathong's old bed -- also dead.

That, the surviving migrants say, is more than a coincidence. It's proof of something supernatural.

Despite their gentle and accommodating nature, the group is refusing to move back in.

"They're concern is that the place is haunted," said Derry McKeever of the advocacy group Friends of Farmworkers. "They asked me (Monday) night, 'What is going on here?' "

Chile: The Chupacabras Return

Raul Núñez, director of Chile's IIEE and regular contributor to Inexplicata, recently made us aware of the efforts of Ivan Voreved, another researcher affiliated with the IIEE. Mr. Voreved has been investigating a series of new farm animal deaths in Chile's 6th Region in which the Chupacabras or IEA - Intruso Esporadico Agresivo (Sporadic Aggressive Intruder, the term preferred by researchers) appears to be the culprit.

Voreved notes that these attacks no longer appear to generate the media furor that they did six years ago, when Chile was wracked by its first major experience with the paranormal predator. The result has been a greater willingness on the part of experiencers to speak to serious researchers, in the awareness that they will not be laughed at or turned into figures of fun by big-city reporters. "These details," he writes, "could in time yield positive results toward explaining the phenomenon, which has achieved sociological proportions in many parts of the world."
