(as reported, 1/7/95 through 3/31/95)

The following is the second (somewhat loose and informal) assemblage of
-recent- reports from the Internet, of unusual things seen in the skies.
In most cases, they should follow in chronological order. There are a
few from the previous quarter that didn't get reported in time for the
first Sky Activity Report. Sorry for taking so long to put this second
one together. If you're aware of any reports not found here, please e-
mail me at the address below. You'll notice I've included reports of
objects described as bolides, or fireballs. As this explanation may or
may not apply to all those so described, I've included them all. It is
also likely that some of these reports describing something that is
clearly aircraft of some type, are advanced military aircraft. Again,
this file is a catch-all for everything recently reported. Hopefully,
time and information from readers will help sort these out. I welcome
your help. I would especially be interested in someone having the time
and facility to compare this approximate 12-week period with other
similar periods in the recent past, in terms of number/frequency/quality
of sighting reports not only on the Internet, but in the mass media as

Summary from a daily dutch newspaper (De Telegraaf), 14 febru-
ary 1995.

Almere sighting.

2 Woman are walking with their dogs in the evening at 19.40
hours. It is the 21th of November 1994. One of the ladies
said, "it was a sphere and it just looked like a sunset".
Dozens of people also from Amsterdam and Zeewolde witnessed
the same object. Most people thought it being the moon and
payed no attention to it. The OPUS (Onderzoek (= investigati-
on) Parapsychology, Ufos, Spiritual) foundation collected all
data and concluded this week that it was no blimp, constructi-
on work light or a ball lightning but a real ufo. That sphere
was seen above waters, trees and residential areas. It showed
remarkable behaviour. Initially it hoovered, moved from left
to right, and one family saw it spinning around before it shot
off into the air at high speed. The KNMI (Dutch meteorological
intitution) could not explain this sighting. Nor could a
foundation (De Koepel) in Utrecht which is also specialized in
ufo sightings. According specialists so many people watching
the same ufo is very rare.

UFO seen in Kingsley Michigan

The following description is drawn from my own interviews of the people, not
from newspaper reports. I think it's kind of interesting.

When Tracey Cedja, of Voice Road, just east of Kingsley, Michigan, first saw
the object at approximately 6:30 AM Wednesday, December 21st, 1994 she had
just let her dog out for it's morning constitutional. She didn't see anything
at first, but the dog sensed something. Instead of going onto the lawn to
relieve itself it stayed on the porch, jumped, then ran back inside and hid
under the coffea table. Then Tracey, looking to the south east, saw a bright
light come down out the sky and remain motionless about level with the
tops of the trees. It appeared to be three times the size of her storage
barn, which would make it about 60 feet in diameter. Since the tree-line
behind her house is about 200 yards away, the object must have been much
larger. She said it was emitting bright light of different white and blue
hues, but the object itself was primarily a blue-gray colour with lightning
like streaks flashing through it. She went inside to get her new camcorder,
but couldn't figure out how to work it so she called her neighbour. Mike
Stelter, at about 7:00. He didn't see anything from his house, but came over
and saw the object from her porch. He went back, got his own camcorder, came
back and began video taping the object. While he was filming Tracey called the
state police. State Trooper Glen Guldner responded and arrived at about 7:30 AM.

His official report states "undersigned met with comp. at the above location
and was informed that the object was still visible. Officer went with comp.
to her back porch and was pointed out a bright light in the sky, time was
approx. 7:45 AM, clear skys. Upon looking at the light with binoculars a
cylindrical mass, possible gray in colour was observed. On the underside of
the object a large amount of individual lights were seen that appeared to be
connected by a softer light running through them.... Undersigned watched
the object for approx. 20 minutes before it appeared to get further and
further away. Object could still be seen when officer left the area. During
this time it was noted that the object did not just stay level it could be
observed rotating back and forth and at several times tipped vertically and
then back down. Another smaller object could be seen just to the east
of the larger object however no shape or colour could be seen just a bright
light.... It should be noted that at approx. 7:50 AM three military type
aircraft flew through the area. as each aircraft approached the object the
lights went off then back on as the plane passed."

Tracey told me that Trooper Guldner noticed and showed her a red knob on the
top of the object.

Although Voice Road is the location of radar equipment and sensors used by
the Air Traffic Control Center for Traverse City Airport, local military and
civilian authorities denied that there were any jets in the area.

Minnesota Air Traffic Control Centre contradicted that statement.
Authorities there said that during peace time they do not have a man
watching the console at all times. They said the three aircraft were picked
up on radar, however they were transponding signals which helped the radar
pick them up. They did not pick up the object, but stated that an object in
the air that was not sending out a signal would be hard to be noted.

Major Jerold Foehl, public affairs officer at Camp Grayling, claimed there
were no military jets from anywhere in Michigan or from a base in Toledo,
Ohio, in the air Wednesday morning.

Local astronomers and meteorologists theorized that the object could have
been a planet, possible Venus or Jupiter, enhanced by atmospheric conditions.
However, Dick Cookman, astronomy instructor at Northwestern Michigan College
in Traverse City said he was surprised that an image as large as the one
videotaped did not show planetary detail such as the bands of Jupiter or the
planets moons.

Ed Gildy of Manton was driving north on Baxter Road when he, his
father and mother, all saw the object in the north eastern sky. Since Tracey
Cedja was looking to the south east, this seems to dispute the planet theory.
I've known Ed and his parents for over two years and consider him to be a
sober, reliable person, not prone to flights of fantacy or exaggeration.

Approximately a dozen other people reported sighting some strange object in
the sky on and around December 21st.

I don't know what they saw, but it certainly caused some excitement and made
my life interesting for a while.

Obviously, this is just another case of swamp gas.

Here are transcriptions from the Michigan State Police reports that I obtained
via the Freedom of Information Act.  There has been a recent rash of sightings
in Western and Northwestern Michigan in the past four months.  It seems as if
something major is transpiring.  I called the parties involved in the sightings
myself, and I spoke with the Michigan State trooper who also witnessed one
of the events.  I can honestly say that these people are very credible, and
very sure that what they saw was nothing they had ever seen before in their
lives.  I asked all of them if the sighting could have been planet Venus, or
maybe a helicoptor or airplane, and their reaction was definitely very clear -
that they witnessed some type of manufactured craft (either made by US
government or extraterrestrial beings) that could not possibly be mistaken
for a planet or natural phenomena.  But you can read the police reports
yourself and make your own decision.

Incident Status - (5) Closed

Nature of Incident: Reports a suspicious situation, spotted a U.F.O.

Complainant called to report that on Monday, Oct. 10, at 8:15pm he and two
friends were on their way into Traverse City from Lake Ann area when they
spotted a tri-angle shaped object in the sky to the South of them.  He said
they were on N. Long Lake Rd. in the vicinity of Straight Rd. and the object
was off to the Southeast.  The driver, (name witheld), age 22 stopped the
pickup truck and all three got out to get a closer look.  As they got out and
watched the object, it sped off from it's hovering position in a lift off
angle similar to a helicopter.

Complainant checked with the Traverse City FAA Tower to see if any such plane
or balloon was in the area at that time of night, but the man at FAA said he
was too busy to talk about such a thing and hung up.

Undersigned officer talked to (name witheld), who was the driver of the pickup
truck that evening, and she related that she wasn't able to get a good look
at the object as she was watching the road.  She did stop and within moments
of them getting out to see it hovering over the corn field it sped off.

The other passenger (name withheld), age 16 wasn't available to comment.

The object was described as tri-angle shaped object with the lower or bottom
having blue lights emitting from it and shining downward.  At the peak of the
object it had a red beacon light.  The strangest thing that (names withheld)
both said about the object was that it lifted off without any roar or sound
of any kind.

LOCATION/TIME:  location is above address located in sec. 28 of Paradise
Twp., Grand Traverse Co., object was first observed at aprox. 6:30am date.

undersigned met with comp. at the above location and was informed that the
object was still visible.  Officer went with comp. to her back porch and was
pointed out a bright light in the sky, time was approx. 7:45am, clear skies.
Upon looking at the light with binoculars, a cylindrical mass, possible
gray in color was observed.  On the underside of the object a large amount
of individual lights were seen that appeared to be connected by a softer light
running between them.  At this time the officer asked comp. if she had a video
camera.  It was learned that she had just purchased one, however did not know
how to work it, she advised that she called her neighbor, (name and address
witheld) and he had been video tapeing the event.

Undersigned watched the object for approx. 20 minutes before it appeared to get
further and further away.  Object could still be seen when officer left the
area.  During this time it was noted that the object did not just stay level
it could be observed rotating back and forth and at several times tipped
vertically and then back down.  Another smaller bright object could be seen
just to the east of the larger object, however no shape or color could be seen
just a bright light.

it was learned that at approx. 6:30am comp. opened the door to let her dogs out
when she first observed something in the sky, as she watched it it appeared to
fall straight down to a height of just over the tree tops near her storage
barn.  When asked about the size she advised that it was approx. 3 times the
size of her barn (approx 60 ft. in diameter).  She stated that she observed
the white and blue lights at this time and there appeared to be a haze around
it.  Comp. stated that she stuck her head outside and was surprised that she
heard no sound coming from the object.

At approx. 7:00am she called her neighbor listed above and requested that he
video tape the events.  Comp. stated that around Thanksgiving time she
observed another event from her home.  She stated that the object was further
away and higher up than this time, however, she could still make out the
lights, she stated that she did not call that time as she was afraid everyone
would think she was nuts.

Undersigned contacted (name witheld) and learned that he had video taped the
events.  He stated that (name witheld) had called at approx. 7:00am and told
him about the object and requested that he tape it.  He got up and got dressed,
went out on the porch and started taping it.  (name witheld) stated that it
was well up in the air when he first saw it and started taping.  (name witheld)
gave undersigned the tape to make copies of, the original to be returned to

It should be noted that at approx. 7:50am three military type aircraft flew
through the area, as each aircraft approached the object the lights went off
and then back on as the plane passed.

a check was made and learned that during peace time they do not have a man
watching the consol at all times.  It was learned that the three aircraft
described above were picked up on the radar, however, they were transponding
signals which helps the radar pick it up.  It was learned that on object in the
air that was not sending out signals would be hard to be noted.

As a resident of Vista, California, I have heard these reports, but
unfortunately have not witnessed anything out of the ordinary in our little
city.  Then again, I never seem to be in the right place at the right time,
except, however, when I was a little girl, but that's another story, set in a
different state.  :)  But, does anyone know *where* in Vista these things were
sighted?  I'd really love to know.

However, couldn't the "booms" here in southern California be traced to
military maneuvers in Camp Pendleton (which is only about ten miles away from
me)?   I betcha that's it, regardless what the military might say.
Then again, I've always been 80% skeptic.

Yeah, but you won't like it.  Although you insist it wasn't a plane, that
configuration you've drawn just screams "airplane".  Besides the lack of
blinking lights, is there anything else that makes you think this was anything
but a plain ol' plane?

Well, although I am not a professional regarding this field.  I can't help
but think that this configuration of lights was/is nothing more than the
underbelly lights of an aircraft... Sometimes the red and green lights are
not visible, so I don't think an aircraft is out of the question...

normal aircraft 'light-show' is red, port wingtip - green, starboard wingtip
 - white, tail with optional rotating reds on belly and upper surfaces.
However, the rotating reds often appear stationary from beneath, many
airliners have floodlight illumination on the fin which is left on along with
landing/taxy lights below 10,000 feet to enhance visibility. More likely is the
lighting used for air to air tanking from something like a KC-135 which will
have a variety of lights both for aircraft guidance and brighter ones for
damage inspection etc in the case of a tanking mis-hap. Tanking is normally done
at moderate altitudes but the aircraft could still be inaudible depending on
met conditions and upper winds etc. The most spectacular lights can often be just
a plain old aircraft. Living near Bentwaters/Woodbridge in the UK I once saw
an AWACS lit up like Christmas taking off through layers of very low stratus,
the effect was pure Spielberg.

  Below is a report from the Manchester Evening News dated Friday 27th January

   Headline :-     Ringway jet in UFO terror

   A BRIGHTLY-lit UFO suddenly appeared in front of a British Airways' plane
 flying to Ringway.

   The two terrified BA pilots, fearing a disaster, ducked in the cockpit of
 the Boeing 737 with 60 people on board, which at the time was at 13,000 feet
 above the Pennines approaching Manchester.

  Captain Roger Wills, who was in command of the flight from Milan, and first
 officer Mark Stuart, have made reports to the Civil Aviation Authority and a
 top-level inquiry is underway today.

  The pilots said in their reports that they saw a "triangular-shaped flying
 object" in front of their plane.

  They immediately checked with air traffic control at Ringway, and were told
 there was nothing on the radar other than their own aircraft. The pilots then
 saw the UFO travel at great speed down the right hand side of their own

  Highly-experienced Captain Wills and first officer Stuart, 24, did not
 initially report what they had seen, as they feared being ridiculed by their

  But the BA management was informed, and following set procedures, reports
 with sketches have been sent to the Joint Air Miss Working Group, which is
 part of the CAA. Both pilots refused to speak to the Manchester Evening News,
 but one of their colleagues said: "They are high-grade, sensible guys".

   "Everyone's talking about what they saw and it is right that it is reported,
 so the experts can try to establish what it was".

  Despite the drama, which the passengers knew nothing about, the plane landed
 safely at Ringway at 7pm on January 6.

BA Jet Pilots Duck As UFO Flashes Past At 13,000 FT

Two pilots thought their last moment had come as their British Airways
jet headed for mid-air collision - with a high speed UFO.

Terrified fliers Roger Willis and Mark Stuart ducked down in the
cockpit when the brightly lit mystery craft appeared only yards in
front of them at 13,000ft over the Pennines.

But as they waited for the deadly impact, they saw the triangular UFO
flash down the right hand side of their Boeing 737 and disappear.

Captain Willis and First Officer Stuart immediately checked with air
traffic control. But they were told theirs was the only plane on the

Their flight from Milan, Italy to Manchester Ringway was 17 minutes
from touchdown when the "alien" invader zoomed past.

The Boeing landed safely, with the 60 passengers unaware of the drama.


At first, the pilots didn't tell pals about the UFO, incase of
ridicule. But BA bosses were informed and they sent a detailed log and
sketches to the Joint Air Miss Working Group, which is part of the
Civil Aviation Authority.

An inquiry was launched into the January 6th incident. But a CAA
spokesman said yeterday: "We have not been able to trace the aircraft


The pilots refused to comment. A colleague said: "They are high grade,
sensible guys. Everyone's talking about what they saw."

Theries that the UFO could have been a new military aircraft were
discounted by experts.

A spokesman for Jane's Defence Weekly said: "We know of nothing at all
being developed that could account for this sighting."

Hi there,

Just thought I'd let you know that some friends of mine was on the flight.
They've got the cuttings on the wall and we are constantly reminded about
it when we go round...
She had been to Italy and was returning home with her flatmate when the
plane suddenly dropped very rapidly. They looked out of the window and
were a little concerned that they saw how low they were flying. Neither
of them saw anything (one of them reckons she might have seen some
lights, but she's not sure) and the first they really knew about it was
when they saw the report in the paper. If anyone is interested I'll give

What follows is a short transcript of a UK Radio 1 Nicky Campbell show,
transmitted on Monday 21st March 1995. I unfortunately missed most of the
interview so I would ask anyone who may have listened in to upload any
information they remember to this group.

[Key]  NC = Nicky Campbell (Radio show host)
          GS = Graham Shepard (Former British Airways pilot)

NC "Back now to British Airways pilots & UFOs. Graham Shepard former British
    Airways pilot talking to me this afternoon. Its been really interesting
    hearing about these encounters with UFOs. There have been others, you've
    been involved in another, briefly what happened."

GS "Yes we were returning from Gibraltar in the evening March 1967, and right
    ahead of us we sighted a brilliant light which was double the - triple
    the magnitude of Sirius at its best, and we tried to identify it on the
    star chart. While we were doing so the light started moving across the
    sky ahead of us and was changing colour, blues & greens & reds, very
    iridescent colours & then started airobatting in the sky at phenomenal

NC "Airobatting?"

GS "Figures of eight, it was just zipping around in the sky. It was flying
    figures of eight & loops. Accelerations that were quite beyond humans."

NC "It came from the planet show-off."

GS "It was putting on a show, it really was & then from nowhere another one
    joined it. There were two of them. They went on doing this for about five
    minutes, drifting away out over the bay of Biscay & it was a brilliantly
    clear night so there was no mistaking."

NC "Confirmed by radar?"

GS "We asked Bordeaux radar, military radar at that time if they had any
    traffic and they confirmed they had traffic ten miles to the west of us
    which by that time is exactly where they were."

NC "And of course you have to make application to be able to do that don't
    you, official application to notify the aviation authorities that we are
    going to be ten miles to the west of this British European airways
    aircraft. It all has to be done through official channels."

GS "Of course."

NC "There was one in Manchester recently wasn`t there. There was another
    incident, you wern`t involved but you know all about it. Very quickly
    what happened there."

GS "Yes this was a very close approach by a UFO and January 6th it was a 737
    returning to Manchester and the crew reported it, they actually went into
    official print. So this now is in the public domain, not only the
    investigation but the conclusions of that investigation by the Joint
    Amiss Working group will have to be made public. My main concern is the
    safety aspect & quite honestly I think it should be a public concern at
    the safety aspect of these close approaches has never ever been
    addressed. Its the instinctive reactions of the pilots who have no
    briefing, no background, no information. I have collected a number of
    reports now totalling ten very good reports of evasive action being taken
    by pilots with injuries being caused to passengers and to cabin crew &
    aeroplanes having to land at midpoint because they have taken evasive
    action with a close approach of a UFO."

NC "So maybe the cover up or the semi cover up by the airlines is not helpful
    at all."

GS "Its not helpful and I think there should be a mature and informed
    discussion about the whole thing and the safety implications of pilot
    reaction to a close approach of these things.

I apologise for any misspelt words, locations, organisation names. If any
are recognised by any of you out there perhaps you will upload an amendment
to this group.

Here's an article that appeared in the Daily Express (British newspaper
to all you Americans out there) on 28th January 1995.


A British airways jet was buzzed by a fast moving UFO it was claimed yesterday.

An inquiry was launched into the pilots' report that the brightly lit
triangular object hurtled towards them before veering off down the side of the

They instinctively ducked before calling air traffic control. They were told
that there were no other planes in the area and at first did not officially
report the incident for fear of being ridiculed.

The Boeing 737 heading for Manchester's Ringway airport from Milan with 60
people on board was at 13,000ft over the Pennines when the pilots had their
close encounter on January 6th.

Now, on the evidence of captain Roger Wills and 1st officer Mark Stuart,
reports have been sent to the Civil Aviation Authority's Joint Air Miss
Working Group. The pilots would not comment but a collegue said: "They are
high grade, sensible guys. Everyone's talking about what they saw and it is
right that it is reported, so the experts can try to establish what it was."

CAA spokesman Chris Mason said any suggestion that the object was a UFO was
"purely speculative" but the investigation could last 6 months.

He said: "A very small proportion of near-miss situations involving untraced
aircraft remain unsolved.

"They often turn out to be air balloons or small private aircraft. A glider,
for example would not show up on radar."

But ex-CAA man Arnold West, now director of the British UFO Research
Association, said: "We know of several spottings of triangular flying objects
over the past few years - the design varies but the wedge shape is common."

Organization: Northwest Nexus Inc.

The following is a transcription of a brief segment of the Laura
Lee Show from KVI, Seattle.  Laura is interviewing Peter Davenport
of the National UFO Reporting Center.  The date is Saturday, 14
January, 1995.  Earlier, I mistakenly identified the guest as
Michael Strenek of MUFON Canada.  Sorry!

[This segment was preceded by discussion of a large number of
sightings in Michigan]

PD.  Actually, it [the Michigan incident] was a prelude to
something that took place just a week ago tonight out in
McMinnville, Tennessee.  I took a report about 9:27 pm. last
Saturday night from the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency.
Theyâre based in Nashville.  And interestingly, they had been
directed by the US Air Force to the hotline out here in Seattle.
Apparently - and you can rest, uh, more soundly tonight knowing
that I apparently am the first line defense against exploding
UFOâs, because last Saturday night, there apparently was an
*immense* explosion very near McMinnville, Tennessee -- thatâs in
Warren County, just east of Nashville -- that caused the Warren
County Sheriffâs Office to be activated, the Tennessee Emergency
Management Agency to be activated, people were launching aircraft
to look for the fragments or fires or injuries or property damage.
It apparently was quite an explosion.  I received a seven-page fax
from the TEMA -- Tennessee Emergency Management Agency -- and Iâve
had a number of phone calls from a number of people about this,
and it certainly took place.

LL.  Now, you were called because strange lights, explosions in
the sky -- but do you personally think it had something to do with
a UFO, or couldnât it have been some other phenomenon?  Someone
set off a bomb, or a small meteor came down, uh, thereâs many
causes of explosions.

PD.  Uh, thatâs true -- a good point, and I skipped over part of
the -- the  -- the most important part of the story.  The
explosion occurred several minutes after the Warren County
Sheriffâs Office emergency dispatch was *swamped* with UFO calls.
People were seeing saucers, they were seeing bat-like or
triangular ships.  And one of the objects that was seen descending
to earth in Warren County, Tennessee, was a bright cylinder that
was positioned vertically, that was seen by -- from many vantage
points.  I received a map showing the lines of sight from, uh,
perceivers or witnesses to this event.  Lines of sight from people
who saw it. The object descended to the ground level, after which
there was an *immense* explosion -- a white flash, and blue
burning fragments of material were seen thrown high into the sky
over McMinnville.

LL.  Did you ask a scientist how do you get a blue burning
fragment?  I mean -- red hot, we know about.  You can get blue
flames or white flames, but blue flames, could you even
guesstimate the temperature, therefore the kind of material used -
- you can begin to piece these little facts together?

PD.  Youâre full of good questions tonight, because thatâs the
reason I said "blue burning fragments".  Because exactly as you
state, the temperature is a function -- er -- the, the
incandescence, the color of the burning fragment is a result of
its temperature.  And the fact that it was blue makes it very
mysterious.  The, uh, I was told by TEMA that the airport manager
of the McMinnville, Tennessee airport, after he saw the explosion,
jumped in his own airplane, and took off, and searched the area
for about six minutes, canât -- not believing his eyes that there
wasnât some kind of visible damage or destruction or fire or
something in process there.

LL.  So, nobody found any damaged buildings, nobody found a hole
in the ground, ah, um, nothing.

PD.  Thatâs my understanding.

LL.  It was just -- and nobody found fragments.

PD.  Thatâs my understanding.

LL.  You donât know if some government agency, or *somebody* came
in.  Or do you?

PD.  Well, I do.  And weâve had -- we have a number of
investigators to whom I have handed this information out in that
area.  As you know, the, the hotline here, the National UFO
Reporting Center does not have its own investigators.  All we are
is a clearing house for information.  We take in reports and we
try to turn that infromation around on short notice to
investigators or interested parties -- ah, in this case, out in
that area, that neck of the woods.  And weâve had a number of
investigators skulking around Warren County trying to find out
whatâs going on.  The one thing we do know, uh, reasonably
certainly at this point, is there have been some federal
investigators circulating in that area -- we presume theyâre
federal -- telling all of the authorities to say nothing about
this event -- for what reason, I donât know, but it comes from a
very, very good source.

LL.  You never know, I guess, when the next Roswell will happen,
and you never know when itâs gonna happen in your own back yard,
is that what youâre trying to tell us here?

PD.  Well I donât know.  I may have seemed to have implied that,
but itâs only inadvertent, because frankly, I really donât know
what happened there, except to say that the events that were
described *before* the explosion apparently are very similar to
what was reported just three or four days earlier out in the heart
of Michigan.  In point of fact, I took, six nights running, Laura,
I took telephone calls all times of night and day, uh, about bat-
like or delta-shaped ships.  It started on the first of January
that was my, uh, New Yearâs greeting.

My dad is a member of the spokane astronomical society in spokane, and he
told me this past weekend that there may have been a meteor fall near
Hayden Lake, Idaho...about 40 miles (???) NE of spokane.  Apparently there
was some question whether it was a downed plane or not, but something
funny did happen.  I think they were planning on going on a trip and start

The blue flash observed by many people in the intermountain region was
originaly thought to be caused by an aircraft crash which was the reason
for the search partys. This was later recinded by an unknown agency that
declared the blue-flash was just the result of a meteor impact. However,
no meteor impact-site has been discovered nor has any witness described
seeing anything like a meteor landing. At the time of this writing, an
appearent news blackout regarding this incident has been implemented.

   I live in Northern California and was speaking to my Mom, who lives
in Spokane WA, this evening, when her 11 o'clock news came one.
Apparently  dozens of people Between Montana and Seattle had seen a lite
in the sky and the news said that rescue workers had been dispatched in
the Spokane area, but the FCC said that it was a meteor and searchs were
called off.  The news didn't say which way the object was traveling, E
to W or W to E, but Spokane, is roughly in the middle of the two places
from which it was seen.  Seems kind of odd that they would think that
something had crashed near Spokane when it is between the two farthest
points from where it was viewed?  I would appreciate any more
information anyone could give me.  Did anyone happen to view this?  It
didn't make our local news in N. California, not tonite at least.




I didn't see the comet-like light green orb passing through the sky this past Friday night but I personnally did one a few months ago at about midnight. It came out of the west and went down in the east, perhaps somewhere in the area of the Sapphire Mount
ains in Montana. (I live just south of Missoula, MT)

Many people around here saw the light green orb approx. 8 p.m. last FRiday night here in Montana. It was reported in the Sat. or Sun. edition (if not both) of the Missoulian newspaper (published in Missoula MT).

It was traveling west to east and seemed to go down east of Bonner MT (I think) -- either that or it went beyond the horizon to the east of this area.

I think these sitings are just 'space junk' coming down. There is a lot of debris in space from all the misc. equip and such that have been sent up the past thirty years or so and eventually it has to come down. Most of it will probably come down at sea,
but some of it will come down over land masses.

I hope this helps.

From the Fairfield Daily Reporter, February 15, 1995:

Mystery UFO:  Citizens stand by story of unidentified flying object

by Charlie Goodyear

FAIRFIELD, CA -- Some people just have to believe.

Following reports in January of an unidentified flying object, officials at
Travis Air Force Base declared it a case of mistaken identity, saying the
object was actually a blimp advertising tax services.  (That sounds

But not everyone is convinced.

All of the people contacted for this article were adamant that what they saw
on two January nights was definitely not a blimp, and not easily explained.

"I'm not a believer in UFOs.  I never had been.  But what I saw made me think
twice," said one Fairfield woman who swears she and her two teenage daughters
experienced a close encounter.

"I was driving home from Benicia on Jan. 20 around 7:30 p.m. after dropping
off a friend, and as I headed east on Interstate 680 I noticed something all
lit up," she said.  "I took the Rio Vista turnoff and noticed it again near
the Budweiser plant.  At that point I got a little freaked out."

Driving home through Suisun City, she saw the object again near Railroad
Avenue and Sunset Boulevard.  And when she pulled into the driveway of her
home off Travis Street, the object, brilliantly let, was floating above the

"At this point I'm talking to myself.  I said 'This is something the girls
need to see' and I went inside to get my daughters," she said.

The woman's two daughters, 15 and 17, were inside the home.  The 15-year-old
had thought she heard a shot around the time her mother pulled into the
driveway.  The teen called 911.

"I had heard a boom and thought it was a gunshot.  But my sister had her
earphones on and thought it was something else.  When my mother came in, I
went outside with her and there it was with two bright lights, like headlights
on a car," she said.

Mother and daughter followed the object back over to a clearing near Railroad

It didn't make a sound.  We rolled down the windows and we didn't hear
anything like a plane or a helicopter.  And it moved too swiftly for it to be
a blimp," the younger daughter said.

When the two returned to the house, the 17-year-old daughter noticed the
object following them back.

"I screamed.  It looked like it was coming right at us.  It was so low and it
turned sharply.  It was really scary to me," she said.

Two 19-year-old ROTC students had a similar encounter just a few days earlier
on Jan. 16.

"We were coming back from Lucky's on East Wigeon Way and we spotted it out
near Lawler Ranch and Grizzly Island.  We both got a little scared.  It seemed
like it was following us.

"What convinced me it wasn't a blimp is that it moved too agile, too swiftly,"
one student said.

The teens were significantly impressed and made a drawing of the object and
told their ROTC instructor, Col. Daryl Nelson.

Nelson, however, was skeptical and remains so.  (Surprise!)

"I wouldn't put any credence in what they're saying," he said.  "I'm sure they
believe what they're saying.  But kids at this age get excited by these sort
of things.  And there was no physical evidence to support their claim."

Still all of the observers insist they know what they saw.

"I'm going to keep a camera in my car and keep an eye out when I pass by
Grizzly Island, especially at night," the woman added.

(Hopefully many people in this area will start carrying a camera in their car,
loaded with ISO 1600 film!  The paper has a drawing of a long teardrop-shaped
object with a bright light on the top and what appears to be a beam shining at
an angle below the object.)

(I know someone else who was followed home by a brightly lit UFO a year
earlier.  She was extremely frightened.  I have also seen several UFOs in this
area, one of which I described earlier in an interview entitled "Travis AFB
UFO Sighting.  The UFOs definitely exist and they are not blimps!  More
likely, IMO, at least some of the UFOs were built for the Air Force and are
being stored and tested near Travis AFB.  Perhaps others UFOs are observing
these new anti-gravity craft piloted by humans.  The fact that the UFOs are
not particularly stealthy suggests to me that the government is preparing us
for the existence of this exciting, revolutionary technology! -- David)

Having lived in Roswell for a great deal of my life and having seen what I

still alot of unusual activity going on there.  I recently spent a week in
Roswell and had not thought about UFO's until my brother and nephew walked
in the front door excited about having seen a UFO.  I questioned them as
to what it looked like and they explained that as they were trying to
figure out what it was they were looking at, when it disappeared from
sight.  They said the UFO just vanished and that they could not locate
anything in the sky remotely resembling what they had just seen.  This
occurred on Wednesday Jan. 25,1995.  A few years ago my older brother also
related his UFO story to me.  He told me that around 1986, while working
overtime one saturday, that he and a co-worker were loading gravel unto a
dump truck and that two UFO's ( I forgot the shapes of both stories) were
"cruising" very slowly side by side overhead.  He watched for a couple of

Well.. I have never been in this particular area before, but it
was suggested that perhaps I should place a post here.

Friday am, at 0045, 27 Jan,1995 I was flying my aircraft from
Orlando, Fl to Sarasota, FL.  I had one passenger in the back
asleep, and on riding the right seat awake.  I was approx 30
nauticle miles out of Sarasota, inbound on the 220 radial..  I
was at 3000' the night was clear, no clouds, unlimited
visability.  My ADF (low Freq) radio began "pulsing" the
squelch circuit.. instead of the ordinary "rushing" sound, it
began a pulsing "quieting" routine.  I didn;t pay too much
attention to it.  Shortly after that, my aircraft experienced a
buffeting.  I immediately looked down at the engine gauges on
the instrument panel.  As soon as I looked down, the cockpit
was brilliantly lit up with a greenish/white light.  I looked
up, and out of my 11 o'clock I saw an orangish/red object,
roundish, but longer than it was wide, maybe 1/4 mile away, and
appeared about the size of a semi trailer.  Appx. 50' in
length.  This object had twin trails, merging into one distinct
trail extending about 1/2 mile behind the object at all times.
 The object crossed my flight path, descending rapidly.  My 1st
impression was the flaiming fuselage of an airplane crashing
into Sarasota....  This object leveled out perfectly without an
arc... lust went from a rapid descent to straight and level!!!
 It leveled off before reaching the city limits, proceeded
across Sarasota, out over Sarasota Bay and then just was gone!
 Like it just shut itself off!!  I immediately radioed Tampa
Approach Control and reported what I had seen.. I tracked the
object for about 5 seconds or so.  Tampa Approach had NOTHING
on Radar.. NOTHING!  Something THAT big and they didn't even
see it..   I was a bit shaken, even did a circle out over the
bay wondering if I would spot anything..  My awake passenger
saw the flash as it went by us.. a few expletives were stated
at the time.. it was close!!  Anyhow.. I telephone Tampa
Approach via telephone later that day, got the Supervisor.. he
helped me place the time at 12:45am..  I am currently
attempting to secure a copy of the Air Traffic Control tapes
from that morning.  I was asked by the Supervisor to contact
MUFON, which I did.. have received telephone calls from the
State Director, and was interviewed this afternoon.  That's
basically where I got the idea to bring it to the Internet..
and to check out this Newsgroup.  Also am hoping maybe someone
else may have seen or talked to someone who saw something Early
Friday morning..
I am NOT saying I saw a spacecraft, or anything like that.. I
am saying, after being in the Military, and having an extensive
background with weapons and the like, I have NEVER, EVER seen
anything even close to that!  And it was not "Falling" as it
instantly changed attitude from descent to straight and level..
this object was on a due East to West corse...  It was NOT an
aircraft, rocket, meteor, etc..   It "flew" like nothing I have
seen, and defied the natural rules of flight and aerodynamics
that I, or any other pilot know of!  Think what you will.. I
know I have never seen anything remotely close to this.. I will
continue to say "I have no idea what that was!"  I do know that
it affected my aircraft BEFORE it passed in front of me.. and
when it did pass in front of my aircraft, it produced NO WAKE
TURBULENCE??!!!  That bothered me even more, after I thought
about it..

Well.. so you know..  that's about it for me..  If anyone in
the area honestly saw, or knows of someone else who saw
something that morning, I would greatly appreciate a response

Was "Re: bolide observation over Florida Panhandle"

        I posted a couple of queries concerning some bolide
observations during the Superbowl game and so far have not received
any comments from the net. I thought I would change the title slightly
and see if anyone can answer the question as to whether there should
be any meteor showers that have been going on during the past week?

        Sunday evening (Jan 29) there was a really big and bright
something that burned in the vicinity of Tallahassee. I have discussed
this with about a dozen people in the area and may be able to come up
with a trajectory, though the data are very approximate. Does anyone
have a neat program that takes data such as angles and times and does
a least squares on position? It wold have to have some weighting
function as the uncertainies vary by observer.

        This object was so bright as to illuminate fields like
daylight when it presumably exploded overhead. Ball of fire
spitting pieces and then kablooey. Some heard a low rumbling like
distant thunder after about 30 sec to a minute, but it was not
obvious that this was not from jets in the Gulf.

        My reason for inquiry though is that there were several
observations on Sunday extending through Wednesday. Most of these were
in early evening through midnight. Also, a TV station called me this
morning and asked what I knew about a big meteor looking object that
was seen in south Florida.

        I have perused a couple of texts and do not see any know
showers for this date.

1)  I am positive I passed thru it's wake.. it crossed my flight path and I
made no corse changes.
2)  Well.. the buffeting from my aircraft could have been a sonic disturbance I
suppose, however, we heard no "boom" whatsoever, and I calculated thspeed of
the object to be close to 420 knots, based on the time it crossed the distance
I saw it travel.
For anyone who has ever flown an aircraft, I experienced the buffeting felt
just prior to entering a stall.  Not your standard turbulence bumping or
trouncing, but a buffeting.

Well, I was contacted by MUFON again today.  I was asked to
compose a report suitable for release to the media if possible.
 A recoup of that night, and what I have done since.  If anyone
is interrested, let me know and I'll be happy to post here.
Please be advised, correspondence I do recieve may be included
in whatever I do release, if I am so asked.
I did get a rather curios reply to the post in this group from
someone at GSFC.NASA.GOV...  Still checking that one out.
At work today, my co-worker showed me a section of our local
Sunday Newspaper.. an article about several lights seen in the
sky over the weekend.  These people tried to blow it off as
being the Aurora Borealis..   "The Northern Lights" must have
been on full power, to show up all the way down here in
Florida.. and odd that it was a selective viewing for people
only in the Tampa Bay area!  (NOT!)
Lastly.. The reason for the MUFON contact seems to be a MUFON
member up north of me had a sighting of what may be the
identical object I witnessed.  I was give the gentleman's phone
number and will be in contact with him, at his request, to
compare notes.

Again.. anyone with any further info, or questions, please feel
free to let me know.

Employer: #########

     On 95-01-29 at approximately 7 p.m. I was heading east on my grid
near my farm. As we were driving home I noticed a flying object just to
the south of the grid. It was travelling in a north by northeast
direction. It was travelling very slowly for a flying object. The
object then proceeded in the direction at approximately 50 mph. This is
very slow for a plane to be travelling and it was only about 300 to 400
feet above the ground. The object was flying over my uncle's cattle.
The object was followed by us and then it made a quick northwest
direction turn. The object continued to fly in that direction, but the
turn was similar to a 45 degree angle. This object flew off in this
direction. I figure we got to within about one mile away from it before
it took off in the opposite direction. I've never seen a plane do that
sort of turn before and I don't believe it could unless it flared up
and this object didn't flare up and turn. It is possible it could be a
gyrocopter or a helicopter, but the turn it made was too sharp for a
copter, I feel.

Q. When/where exactly did you see this object?
A. One mile southeast of my farm on 95-01-29 at 7 p.m. We followed it
east on my grid one mile and we stopped and watched it. The object
would have crossed the grid I was on, right where I was sitting when I
decided to watch the object. The object then continued northeast for
about one mile and then it made its sharp turn and continued northwest.

Q. How long did you see this object?
A. About five minutes.

Q. Can you give me a description of the object?
A. No, not really. It had red lights, blue lights and white lights.

Q. How many lights would it have had?
A. Six for sure, two of each. The blue lights were flashing

Q. How bright was the light?
A. Just like regular aircraft lights.

Q. Any shape of the object?
A. No, that's the bad part.

Q. How many objects?
A. One.

Q. Altitude of the object was?
A. About 200 metres.

Q. What color was the object?
A. I couldn't make it out.

Q. Did it make any sound?
A. I never opened a window and it was too windy.

Q. What was the condition of the sky?
A. It was clear, but it was at dusk so we couldn't see stars yet.

Q. Who all saw the object?
A. My wife ########################, my children. Also of course

Q. Anything else that stuck out about this object?
A. We don't get many planes that low at that time of day in this area.
Also, the unusual turn that this object made. It was like a 45 degree
angle from northeast to northwest.

Just wanted to tell all you UFO watchers that there has been another
pretty big sighting here in Michigan just two nights ago.  Some people got
it on video and it was played on the local news.  Unfortunatly (like most
recorded sightings) it was difficult to make much out of the video image
other than a bright moving light.  However, the people who saw it swear
that it was "doing things that a plane can't do".

Sorry I was so vague in my first message about the Michigan sighting.  It
took place in the town Muskegon (where last year there were MAJOR
sightings -- as a matter of fact it was so big that it was on the shows
Encounters, and A Current Affair (if I remember correctly).  I know I got
a couple of newspaper clippings on the sightings (last year's big
incident).  If I can dig them up I'll send out a copy to anyone who wants
one if they e-mail me their address.
Anyway, this year there were approx. five eye-witnesses.  They saw a
bright object in the sky that seemed to be moving around in ways that a
plane cannot.  It happened in the early evening on Monday, January 30th,
1995.  Other than that there aren't a lot more details.

 A Mystery object has been sighted flying across the night sky above
 Aberdeen. Photo sales assistant Anne Marnie (42) was left rubbing her
 eyes in disbelief after her early morning close encounter. She had gone
 to her door at 3am to get one of her cats when she saw a bright, white
 band of vapour in the sky above her Bridge of Don home. Stunned Anne,
 Forvie Cresent, traced the vapour to it's source - a craft with two or
 three lights which was travelling at speed. She said: "I couldn't
 identify it.  It wasn't a plane or helicopter.  It also made a deep noise
 which didn't sound like a plane. "I looked away for a few seconds, then
 when I looked back it had disappeared.  I can't describe or explain what
 it was so to me it was an Unidentified Flying Object." Anne's experience
 is the latest in a series of strange sightings in the North-east,
 including reports of a huge luminous cloud reported at Muchalls last
 year. A brother and sister claimed to have seen white lights, moving
 within it, going left and right, on and of.  The latest sighting is
 unlikely to have been a plane landing at or leaving Aberdeen as the city
 airport closes at 10.30pm. City aviation expert Jim Ferguson says the
 object may have been a large plane flying across the North east en-route
 to another country. A vapour trail could be seen on a clear night if the
 moon was bright, he said. "In situations like this it could have been
 something like a 747 Jumbo flying at high levels between the Low
 Countries and the US," said Mr. Ferguson. A spokesman for the Civil
 Aviation Authority couldn't say whether a civilian aircraft would have
 been flying over the city at the time of the sighting. The Ministry of
 Defence says many reports of alleged UFO sightings are also proved to be
 natural phenomena. What do you think?  Write to the Evening Express,

Fairfield, CA has been a hot spot for UFO sightings lately.  I will be
posting a local newspaper article about more UFO sightings during
January 1995, in a few days.  This is a UFO sighting I personally had and
posted several months ago.  I have since come to the conclusion that this
UFO is owned by the US Government (thats us!).  More to follow soon...


     Sysop's Note: The person being interviewed here wishes to withhold
     the last names of the witnesses. I have been acquainted with "David"
     for almost two years. He has told me that he is a pilot and that he
     has had at least six UFO sightings.

     MC = Mike Coyle
     DJ = David

     MC: Why did you go to the area of the sighting?

     DJ: OK, well I was visiting with a friend which I try to do
         periodically. He has seen some bizarre things out there. So
         we happened to be going around looking at the sky. Actually
         talking at that time about what he had been seeing recently.

     MC: You were walking where?

     DJ: He's on a farm, his place, right next to the windmill farm.
         It's real close to Bird's Landing (CA). Maybe a mile or so
         away, in the Fairfield area.

     MC: How far is that from the edge of Travis Air Force Base?

     DJ: Oh I'd probably say fifteen, twenty miles at the most.

     MC: So your friend has been seeing strange things flying over his

     DJ: He has seen some really big things hovering over his house and
         strange things in the back of his place.

     MC: How does your friend know you?

     DJ: I have known him through a mutual friend for several years.

     MC: Your interest in each other was originally not about UFOs? You
         just knew him and as time went by he had these experiences of
         with things flying over his house?

     DJ: What's right.

     MC: And then he told you about it? So you decided to go out and
         see if you could actually see one?

     DJ: Yes, and I wish I had my camera with me.

     MC: Why didn't you have a camera with you?

     DJ: I wasn't really expecting to see anything there. I have brought
         cameras there before but we never saw anything when I did.

     MC: So you have actually gone out there before to try to see these
         objects and seen nothing?

     DJ: Yeah, he told me about this stuff, and I said, "God I'd love to
         get a picture." I said, "Why didn't you get a picture? You've
         been out there so long?"

     MC: How many times have you gone out there to look around?

     DJ: Maybe five or six.

     MC: So then you finally saw one? What was the day, date and time of
             this sighting?

     DJ: In the evening, maybe around eight or nine, after dark. It was
         about two months ago. I can't recall the exact day. Chilly,
         clear, a slight bit of fog, it was almost like, in fact he had
         mentioned this before, he had seen a kind of fog come up around
         there where they where doing some of their stuff back there. He
         was of the opinion they there putting out a fog field to make
         it hard to see.

     MC: So you were in his house and you decided to go walk around his

     DJ: Yeah, we were inside and decided to go out and walk around
         because he's got a lot of animals. Then we saw something come
         by and it was stranger than most planes would be because it
         had so many lights on the front. At first I just looked at the
         lights because they there so bright. They were kind of amber
         colored, more of a whitish amber and there was a whole row at
         a "V" angle.

     MC: When you first spotted it what direction where you looking?

     DJ: I was looking over towards Travis Air Force Base area from
         Birds Landing, so I guess that would be east.

     MC: In what direction was the object moving?

     DJ: It was moving from south to north.

     MC: Was it coming right at you or was it moving across your line
         of sight?

     DJ: It was moving across my line of sight, a few hundred yards
         away up in the air. We were just to the west of the windmill
         generators. There are some hills to the north. So the object
         was over the hills. As it came over I could see it pretty well
         and then it banked. It was going slower than a plane could
         have flown as far as I could tell because it was too low.

     MC: What was it's approximate altitude?

     DJ: I'd say approximately five hundred feet. When it banked it
         banked at a very extreme angle, like over forty five degrees.

     MC: When you first spotted it how far away did it look?

     DJ: A couple thousand feet away.

     MC: How large did it appear to be?

     DJ: It looked really pretty large, about the size of a, but not
         quite as big as, one of those huge transports.

     MC: Like a C-5?

     DJ: Yeah, but it was a little smaller than that but possibly as
         big as a 747. I thought it was a bomber at first but it was
         going to slow for how low it was. And then all those lights
         on the front. I have never seen planes with a whole row of

     MC: You say it was going slow, near stall speed for a plane?

     DJ: Below stall speed for a plane. Especially when it stopped!
         It just hovered. At first I couldn't really see the shape
         because it was a dark color but the lights were so bright
         that you could tell when it flew over that it was a
         triangular shape, a perfect triangle.

     MC: And your friend was with you during this? Would you like to
         give his name?

     DJ: Yes, he saw it. His first name is Terry.

     MC: What was his reaction to this?

     DJ: He said, "That is the exact same thing I saw over my house.
         It looked like the size of a football field."

     MC: How high up in the air did he think it was at that time?

     DJ: He thought it was fifty to a hundred feet above his house.
         This was on another night. He said it was huge and it just
         sort of hovered there for awhile and then it left.

     MC: Say there is some kind of operation going on out there with
         unidentified aircraft. He is very close to it. Has he ever
         been approached by the Air Force? Or had any contact with
         other authorities?

     DJ: I don't think so. He's never mentioned anything.

     MC: He's never made any reports to the authorities on his own?

     DJ: No.

     MC: Why not?

     DJ: He pretty much knows they're up to something.

     MC: And he doesn't want to bring any attention to himself?

     DJ: Exactly. He doesn't feel it would make any difference. He
         talks about it freely but he would never go to the government.

     MC: OK, so, you say it was traveling south to north and as the
         object got over Travis it hovered?

     DJ: Well more over, actually it was behind, a hill when it started
         hovering but what seemed to be on the other side of the hill,
         was probably some more of those windmills, or least it was
         nearby. It certainly was directly adjacent to those windmills.

     MC: And then what happened? Did it start to land?

     DJ: Actually, it went over a couple of times before it landed. It
         just flew over and banked and turned around the other
         direction. I think it even went behind the hill so we
         couldn't see it for awhile. The first time I saw it I don't
         think it landed or even completely stopped. It just slowed
         down and banked in a extreme bank and that's when a could see
         there were three, sort of glowing, round openings at the bottom.
         I would guess they were some sort of propulsion system. There
         was one at each point of the triangle. Up to this point I
         really couldn't tell what the shape was other than it was a

     MC: When you say triangle, what type?

     DJ: Equilateral.

     MC: So it didn't have a acute angle shape like the new stealth
         bombers or stealth fighters.

     DJ: No, it was perfectly symmetrical.

     MC: So it would make it look much more squat than one of the
         stealths, rather than swept back?

     DJ: Yes, that's right. And then after it came back the second time
         it was hovering at that point. And then it did the most bizarre
         thing. I was trying to see what the overall shape was because it
         was kind of hard to tell with those bright lights on the front.
         Then the bright lights went off. At the same time these
         incredibility bright strobes where lining the edge of the
         triangle. And what it looked like was two platforms which were
         triangular in shape. The lower one had strobes all the way
         around the triangle. Then the upper part, it was maybe ten or
         fifteen feet above the lower triangle. There was a second
         platform which was also triangular shaped and it had more
         strobes. When the strobes went on, they weren't all going on
         at the same time. The strobes on the bottom would alternate
         with the strobes on the top. So it was a real rapid, maybe
         three, four or five times a second. Flashing back and forth
         between the upper part and the lower part. It only did that
         when it was hovering, about to land.

     MC: And then it started to descend?

     DJ: Yeah, then it started to descend and descended all the way
         behind the hill. The reason I could tell it was alternating
         the strobes is that when it began to descend behind the hill,
         the one section, the lower section, was behind the hill and
         the upper section wasn't, then the rate of the flashing was
         half as fast. Finally it dropped completely behind the hill.

     MC: So at this point it was hidden from your view? How far away
         was it then, when it went behind the hill?

     DJ: Probably a couple, maybe three hundred yards.

     MC: So it was off of your friends property?

     DJ: That's right.

     MC: Do you know what property it is? That's not Travis Air Force
         Base is it?

     DJ: No, I think it's either an open field or is part of the
         windmill farm.

     MC: It was only three hundred yards away but you didn't go towards

     DJ: No, because it would have required going through a field with
         lots of bushes and a few fences and...

     MC: Has your friend ever seen one of these things land in that
         area before.

     DJ: Yeah, I think so. I'm pretty sure he had said that he had seen
         them land back there but he had never seen the area where it

     MC: He has never gone in back of the hill?

     DJ: No, I don't think so.

     MC: Are there any public roads going through that area?

     DJ: It's kind of isolated from the other roads in the area. When
         I go there again I am going to try to check that area out.

     MC: OK, so it went down behind the hill. Then what happened?

     DJ: It sounded like large amounts of equipment were off loading.
         Like trucks, jeeps, sort of like a whining sound like a large

     MC: But that is just supposition on your part, right? You could
         not actually see anything at this time, right?

     DJ: Yes, just the sounds of heavy machinery. It sounded like
         large geared type machinery.

     MC: How long did this go on?

     DJ: That lasted for maybe ten minutes and then it took off again.

     MC: And then the object rose up from behind the hill?

     DJ: Yeah, except I don't think it went straight up this time. I
         think it went up at more of an angle. It didn't go up quite as
         high. I believe it was going north again. And it went pretty far
         north. There are some more hills so I couldn't always see it.
         Then it turned back around and came back and landed at that
         same place again and it "off loaded" some more stuff but this
         second time it was a longer period of time. More like twenty or
         thirty minutes.

     MC: When it made the loop and came back, how big of a loop was it?

     DJ: Hard to say because I didn't have it in view the whole time.

     MC: When it came back to land the second time was it in the same
         position it was in, the first time?

     DJ: Yes, it made the same maneuver again with the lights blinking.
         Then sounds of a lot of activity and then it took off again
         to the north and that was the last time we saw it.

     MC: Did it go away fast? Did it go away slow?

     DJ: Fairly slow.

     MC: So it rose up and moved off slowly to the north at low altitude
         until you lost sight of it?

     DJ: Yes, it made some noise but it didn't sound at all like a jet
         engine. Like that whine sound. It was more like a "shsssss",
         or a slight roar. It wasn't very loud.

     MC: OK, when it went away, then what did you guys do?

     DJ: I'd almost forgotten about this part, but all this time, in
         addition to fact that we were watching this thing. When we
         first saw the flying object, we saw some sort of weird thing
         coming through the field and we both, I'm trying to remember
         at what point that happened, but I know at some point,
         possibly even before we saw the flying object for the first
         time, he thought, and I did to, we saw what looked like a
         skinny creature. Tall, but not real tall, like a child height.

     MC: How far away?

     DJ: It was out in the field and more coming from the north. To
         the right of where it landed. That area was a long fence line
         that went back towards the windmill farm. Maybe a hundred
         feet away. It was real dark and I was having a hell of a time
         telling if I was seeing anything. It wasn't moving much. What
         ever it was it was very still. And we were kind of scared and
         I, then we started paying attention to the flying object. We
         were scared. He was saying, "I see something." I said, "I
         think I see something to back there." Then I heard this weird
         thing talking. It was like the sound of a child. When something
         like that happens and you don't expect, at night in an empty
         field, to hear a child laughing and playing. Sounds of a child
         talking. I thought was that an animal? What is that? It was
         like something walking. I mean what ever the voice was, it
         was moving. But I really couldn't see it. So we both tried to
         kind of look at it. Tried to find it again. He keep claiming
         he could see something and I couldn't see anything at that
         point. It was too dark and too shadowy to really tell. Let's
         put it this way, if that thing hadn't been there I would have
         seriously considered walking down the fence and around the hill
         and walking back to the other side. But whatever it was, I got
         the clear feeling that either they were sending something to
         watch us or warn us away. Whatever it was it kept us very
         effectively from going back behind the hill.

     MC: So then you went back to the house? When you got back what
         time was it?

     DJ: Yes, it was probably about 10:30 pm.

     MC: I guess you probably discussed this at length in his house?

     DJ: Yes.

     MC: Did you tell anyone else about this?

     DJ: I told a couple of people I know. A couple of friends.

     MC: Does Terry have animals on the farm?

     DJ: Yes.

     MC: Dogs? Where they with you during the sighting?

     DJ: Yeah, I remember when we first started looking at it, to see if
         there was something in the field, the dogs were barking at

     MC: Did they approach it?

     DJ: I think one of them did run back there. Like it was going
         after an animal.

     MC: They didn't try to attack this thing you saw walking around?

     DJ: No. They didn't seem to have any interest.

bright orange lights near the bottom (see drawing next page). The object
did not make any other movements except to stay beside us. We went home

Below is an article that was in my local paper on Tuesday.........


Four reported sightings of a UFO above the country beauty spot were last night being probed by experts.

Witnesses said a mysterious brightly-lit craft hovered above 500-foot high Blackbury Hill, near Hereford, England.

It is claimed helicopters approached the UFO, but veered away from it.

Mr John White, aged 22, said he saw a dazzling light through the window of his home when he got up to tend his baby son Ben.

He said: 'The light was pulsing, as if it was getting brighter and darker. A cloud went behind it at one point, so I can be really positive it was not a star, and it was some sort of object hovering above the hill. It split in two. One moved after the oth
er, and that was the last I saw'.

The incident happened two weeks ago. Baffled Mr White, said he saw a similar light above the hill a week later, although this time it was surrounded by smaller lights.

A strange light has also been reported as zig-zagging above the nearby River Lugg Meadows.

The sightings were last night being probed by Hereford-based UFO investigator Ray Moore who said he had seen a silver glob-shaped light above Backbury, site of an Iron Age fort, before Christmas.

He said the sightings could be connected with local ley lines - 'invisible energy lines' which some paranormalwriters believe cross the globe, linking such sites as Stonehenge and the pyramids.

Mr Moore said Backbury Hill was a junction of ley lines, which could make it a focal point for paranormal activity.

Last night it was thought one explanation of the sightings could lie with the Hereford-based SAS. The hush-hush regiment never comments on operational matters, but helicopters constantly fly in and out of its cuty HQ.

There hasn't been any other articles in the papers since, and it never made the news so who knows what was going on.

   I was driving down a freeway one night, when I saw a small
green light in the sky. I watched it for a few seconds when
suddenly, it shot straight down for a second, and disappeared.
Has anyone ever had any similiar experiences? I'm wondering
whether or not this has some sort of logical explanation.

I would appreciate direct e-mail responses from anyone
able to shed some light on something I saw a year ago last spring.

I was on the roof of one of the buildings here at Rice
as part of an Astronomy lab.  I have misplaced the logbook
we were required to keep, so I cannot offer an exact date
or time, but it was late February or early March and must have been
between 7 and 11 at night.  The sky was partly obscured
by low clouds and these clouds reflected the orange light
from the sodium street lamps around this area.
My two lab partners were adjusting our telescope while
I was just looking up.  I would describe what I saw as
three disks, nearly touching, and arranged colinearly along
an east-west axis --> like so:       OOO
They traveled together along this axis to the east.
I first noticed them at a position just to the west of my zenith
and I followed them with my eyes until they were obscured by
a bank of clounds.  I'm not a good judge of angular dimension, so
I'll just say that they appeared about as wide as your little finger
held at arm's length.  I tried to call them to the attention
of my lab partners, but they were gone before the two
could look up.

I saw no lights on the objects.  I was able to distinguish
them from the clouds because the way they reflected the ground
light made them look smooth.

Sorry, but that's about the best description I can make.

In the past two months, the local press in Derby (UK) have reported
approx. 15 sightings of a blue triangle larger than an aircraft in the
sky.  Reports vary from distance sightings, possibly planes, to the
object hovering over a blokes house in Ashbourne.  Either I am very
lucky to live in this area of the planet, aliens are everywhere all
across the globe, or people are telling untruths.  Of course, as
always, there is no hard evidence, but the reportings are nontheless

Are we living in hope of there being an alien culture to bring us all
closer together, or should our governments be actively monitoring these
sightings and passing the information onto the people concerned, us.

I wish I knew where we fit in.

outh of Melbourne, but north of Palm Bay. They took the wrong road on the way home and saw it in front of them. It was close enough that mom swears it was only a few hundred feet in front of them. It crossed the road and when they passed she looked for fl

Last night I saw an unusual but explainable bright light in the sky.
About 10:45 PM, I was returning to my home from walking my dog
when I noticed a noctilucent cloud (one which is illuminated by
sunlight after dark because of its extreme altitude).  The cloud
was not unusual but was interesting to look at.  After a few
minutes, a pin point of yellow light in the middle of the cloud
became brighter and brighter until it was about half as bright as
our street lights which are the same yellow color.  I watched the
light for 30 sec. to 60 sec. until it dimmed the same as it had
brightened.  Then I watched the cloud until the sun finally set on

I would have dismissed this light as just the head light of an
airplane which turned toward me for 30-60 sec. and then away.
Even the unusual yellow color could have been from the atmosphere
which causes our colored sunsets, setting moon, planets and stars.

However, tonight, I learned from the Honolulu news that yellow/
orange lights had been observed in the skys over windward (east) Oahu
for the last week.  Many lights together were observed by many
different people at different times and different locations.  All
descriptions were of yellow lights.  Those who live on windward Oahu
are accustomed to seeing the many aircraft (airliners and military)
and I believe they would not have reported this unless it was very

The news report included an official statment by agents of Mufon
that this was a hoax employing (bag & candle) hot air baloons.  I
can honestly tell you that what I saw was no hot air baloon.  It
looked more like the head light of a jumbo jet.  It would seem to
be quite a coinsidence that anomalous yellow lights are being seen
to the east of Oahu and to the west of Hawaii (200 miles apart) at the
same time and are not caused by the same phenomenon.  It would also
seem unlikely that the Oahu sightings were all airplanes flying
directly at the observers simultaneously.

If Mufon is serious about their explanation, then I would seriously
question their objectivity.  Maybe Mufon has an agenda for spreading
mis/dis-information?  Maybe they just jumped to a hasty and incorrect

If anybody in the islands has had similar sightings, please post your
story or e-mail me about it.  I am really anxious to hear an explanation
which fits ALL the sightings.

Hi all,

Here's something we saw while driving through town.

Night was clear, sky not very dark because Lebanon is a small city.  It
was difficult to see, due to glaring lights.  We drove to a semi-dark
parking lot to get a better view.  It was flying very slowly, I'd say
about 15 MPH, and wasn't a shape of a plane.  It was possibly boomerang
shaped.  Many lights on it (more so than your average commuter plane),
of a variety of colors.  It was low-flying, less than 3,000 feet up,
I'd say, and it didn't make a sound.  I wanted to follow it, but my
passenger was spooked (his first UFO, and he's a born skeptic), so we
didn't.  An interesting note is that the flight pattern brought it very
close to our little regional airport.  I did not follow up on this
sighting (did not call the airport tower, did not check the local paper
the next morning for confirmation of the sighting).

(Thanks Charlie)

UFOs seen hovering near Hinckley railway station.

Late night shoppers at Hinckley`s Food Giant supermarket have sparked
an investigation after reporting sightings of unidentified flying
objects hovering around the adjacent railway station on Thursday night.

Several people were reported seeing a glowing ball of light just a few
feet from the ground over the nearby railway lines.

The object was said to be making buzzing sounds and throwing smaller
luminous balls of light into the sky for at least five minutes.

However, investigators from the Leicestershire UFO study project who
are probing the claims, have so far drawn a blank.

Their spokesman said "We have no idea what this phenomenon may have
been. It disappeared suddenly and left no traces. The guess is that it
may have been some form of rare electrical manifestation."

He added "We believe that other people must have seen the glow, who
have not yet reported their sighting. We would very much like to hear
from them."

Anybody who spotted Hinckley`s suspected space visitor should call the
project supervisor on Hinckley 614013, after 4pm.

All information will be treated as confidential.

A long time ago (a few weeks anyway) someone had asked for more on the

alt.forteana) I have located an article from the Orange County Register
(2/10/95) that appeared the day after the event. Enjoy one and all!


Oddity: Anaheim residents saw something strange, but no one knows what.

ANAHEIM -- All around a tree-lined neighborhood near West Ball Road and
the Santa Ana (I-5) freeway on Thursday morning, adults and children alike
were asking one another: "Did you see it?"

Those who said they glimpsed a dark object hovering in the sky between 6
and 7:30 AM -- among them a 13-year-old boy, a 46-year-old chiropractor's
aide, a 74-year-old former military pilot and a 53-year-old school
attendance clerk--said it was the strangest thing they'd seen in all their
years on this planet.

Few wanted to say the initials: UFO. No one from the federal air agencies,
nearby military bases, the National Weather service or the Police
Department had heard any reports or could explain the sighting.

"We feel strange admitting we saw something so weird in the sky," said
Elaine Mazor, attendance clerk at Ball Junior High School, who saw what
she described as two dark oblong objects hovering over the school on West
Ball Road. "I didn't see any green men or anything."

Descriptions differed. One person said there were two round objects, and
three people said they saw a misshapen lump. All agreed it was dark and
seemed to hang in the heavens without visible propellers, wings, or a

"To me it looked like a Model-T that got hit by a freight train," said
Chris Christensen, 72, a former World War II pilot who lives on Sonya
place, about three-fourths of a mile away from the school. He said he saw
the object around 7:30 AM, when he went out to get the morning paper.

Christensen grabbed a pair of binoculars, but he said he still couldn't
make it out. "I still don't have the slightest idea what it was." he said.
"I was just curious about it. It was like a piece of junk hanging from an
invisible balloon."

One mile south of Christensen's home, 13-year-old Joe De Guevara was
walking along Aspen Street, on his way to school, when he saw something in
the sky at about 6:45 AM. "It was all different shapes: it wasn't just one
shape," he said. "It wasn't really round, it wasn't really square. It
looked like two people on top of a platform, spinning."

De Guevara said he watched the object the whole way to school. At the
school, Mazor and Linda Linder, 44, a campus aide, were standing outside,
watching with several other adults and children.

"It was like a cylinder, black, turning and rotating in the sky." said
Alexandra Diaz, 14.

Kathy Thompson, 46, said she became alarmed when she heard about a KIKF/
94.3FM radio broadcast about the object from a friend. Thompson said she
awoke at 6:45 AM and saw a small, round, protozoan-like object that grew
into a larger, splatter-shaped object hovering beyond her apartment
complex on Palm Lane.

"I'm going: 'Oh my God, this is unbelievable. Somebody has just got to
know what this is,'" said Thompson, a chiropractor's aide.

Authorities from Disneyland [the theme park is no more than 2 or 3 miles
away] to the FAA were stumped by the reports, dismissed by some as an
early-morning urban myth.

Anaheim police received no calls about the sightings, Sgt. Tom Mathisen

"It wasn't Disneyland," Magic Kingdom spokesman John McClintock said.
"I've checked with everyone who might have conceivably had something in
the air this morning, and no one did."

The FAA didn't receive any reports either, and controllers at Fullerton
Airport, less than five miles north, saw no sign of the objects, officials

The National Weather Service regularly releases balloons to test
atmospheric conditions, but not in Orange County, said meteorologist
Stephen Ahn.

Planes did not fly out of El Toro Marine Corps Air Station until 7AM, and
the first helicopters did not leave Tustin Marine Air Corps Station until
an hour later, said Cpl. Chris W. Cox, a spokesman for the bases.

Ted Bartimus, spokesman for the 63rd Army Reserve Command, stationed at
Los Alamitos, said his units sometimes fly in the area where the sightings
occurred, but he doubted anyone would call them UFOs.

A Corona Del Mar UFO investigator said the reports could be anything from
a hoax to a bizarre weather formation.

"You don't know, in fact, that it's extraterrestrial," said Melinda Leslie
of the Mutual UFO Network.

Back in the West Ball neighborhood, residents don't know what they saw. "I
don't think it was a UFO," Christensen said. "What's so strange about it,
though, is you don't usually see something that's floating in the sky."

Before I state what I saw I would like to clarify that I am using UFO in
the very literal sense.  I, and four of my friends saw something that we
cannot explain.  Here's the story.
At about 11:00pm (pst) last night my friend called me over to his room.
His room looks out on the Channel Islands and is on the 7th floor, giving
it an excellent view.  On the horizen I saw a line of lights.  After
summoning two more friends and getting a pair of binoculars was able to
see it somewhat more clearly. The lights were arranged symmetrically
around the axis perpindicular to us.  I will describe the lights as I saw
them from left to right.  The first light was slightly above the others,
after a small space there was a a group of four lights close together in
a straight line, after another space was a single light, a larger space
separated it from a pair lights in the center, another equally large
space lead to another single light, a smaller space seperated this single
light from a another straight line of four lights, at the end was another
light above the rest at the same level as the first.
Through the Binoculars it appeared that the object was actually curved.
At this point we left the dorm and went down to the beach to get a better
view. As we watched we noticed it moved from East to West (The Ocean in
Santa Barbara is actually to the South so it was moving from our left to
our right) at differing speeds.  It would go very fast for a short time
and then stop.  At one point I saw it bob down and then resume moving.
My friend saw it tilt along the perpindicular axis as well while looking
through binoculars.  We have no explaination for what it was.
It dissappeared behind one of the islands and did not reappear.  The
Islands are about 26 miles away and the thing appeared to be about an
inch long from our perspective, for the distance then it must have been
very large.  This would rule out aircraft since 747's on approach into LA
appear to be about an 1/8 of an inch and would be at roughly the same
distance, if not closer.  It also covered an incredible amout of space in
a very short time, fastr than we have seen other ships travel.  Therefore
we are at a loss.  We have speculate dthat it might have something to do
with PT. Magu which is a Navy Training area S of here.  If anyone has any
ideas please post them because we cannot think of anything.  Thanks.

        About a few days ago, I exited my lovely toronto home throught the backyard
and this was around 7pm or so. It was a normal day, I had just finished
school a few hours earlier and phad planned to enjoy a relaxed evening in the
company of friends. As I walked out towards my car, I noticed a somewhat
bright white light just above a few houses out in the distance. At first I
thought it was an airplane and waited for it to fly by or perhaps over my
house. I am a very big fan of aircraft, and therefore watching aircraft
fly-by was something I always enjoy doing. Anyways as this "UFO" became
closer and closer, and let me just give you an idea of where it was comming
from. My backyard is facing south (exactly), towards Lake Ontario. The craft
was heading in a north/north/west direction. As it came closer to my house, I
just stood there and observed this strange white light. As we all know
aircraft have beacon lights and this strange craft did not. I still had no
idea what this strange craft was. It seemed like a regular airplane, but
there were no distinct beacon lights and as it got closer, no sounds were
heard. As it continued its north/north/west flight path, it suddenly changed
course and it was now flying in a north/west direction, straight towards my
house. I thought that this was great, a chance to see an airplane fly over my
house. Its nothing special but its always something nice to see. As the craft
got closer and closer, I noticed that it was flying much too slow to be an
aircraft. And it was really REALLY low. If I'm not mistaken according to Air
Regulations, and aircraft must maintain an altitude of 1000 feet above the
tallest structure in the area, or something of that sort. Well this strange
craft must of been at at least 500 feet, perhaps even lower. It seemed so
close when it flew DIRECTLY over me. The strange thing that I find it
difficult to explain is the way its shape appear to be in the dark sky and
the way the lights suddendly became brighter and then returned to their
normal brightness. Allow me to explain. The craft appeared to  be somewhat
triangular in shape. The reason I say this is because there were other
smaller lights in the outer regions of the craft giving it the shape
mentioned. And right when the craft "hovered" very slowly above me, its two
large ligths became really bright and two columns of light brightned up my
whole backyard including myself... I found this very strange... I'm somewhat
confused, even today as to the true origin of this craft. Was it really a
UFO? I myself beleive it to be such, because how low it was, how slow it was
flying and the light configuration. No aircraft I have EVER seen has a light
configuration such as that one. Let me try to show you what the craft looked
like from the bottom. I must warn you that I am not much of an artist...

                                                             o    o

        o    O      O   o

           o  oo oo  o

        The smaller o's represent the smaller lights that I mentioned covered the
outer region of the craft. The two large O's represent the two large lights I
spoke of. Those two large lights were at first turned off, but when the craft
was directly over my house, they were turned on and they were quite bright.
Much like the type of lights you would find at a baseball stadium but they
were round. So these two lights were turned on for about a few seconds or so,
and I could see these two columns of light shining down on my kneighbours
houses as it flew over me. The lights were then turned off and the craft
continued its north/west heading.  To this day I still donot know what this
craft was. I know what I saw and I would like to perhaps undergo hypnosis. I
fear that I might have been abducted,but it did not appear to me at the time
that I had lost any time. From what I've read about Abduction cases, victims
recall time lapses when an abduction takes place. I did not noticed this or
even suspect it. Is there anyone out there who could perhaps explain to me
what it was that I saw and if there is a slight possibility of an abduction?
This message is not a fabrication of my imagination. I know what I saw and I

Hello everyone.  The following event happened flying into Salt Lake
City on Delta Airlines flight 1485 on Feb. 20 1995.  I had meant to
post this sooner, but I didn't get around to it.

I want to premise my story by stating that what I saw was a UFO in the
strictest sense (An Unidentified Flying Object).  In other words,
I have no fricking clue what it was that I saw.  I am hoping that
someone can shed some light on this for me, or that I may perhaps get
a verification of this by others who were in the right place at the
right time in Salt Lake City.

I was flying from Omaha, NE to San Francisco, CA.  Flight 1485 was
the first leg of this flight, with a layover in Salt Lake City, UT.
Flight 1485 arrives in Salt Lake at 8:45 p.m.  So the time of this
sighting was approximately 8:45 PM, Feb. 20. 1995.  The location
was within 2-7 miles of Salt Lake City airport (I don't know from
which direction we made our final descent, although I suspect it
was either from the North or East).

Here is what happened:

I was sitting in a window seat on the right side of the plane, towards
the front (Looking out West or North upon descent?), so I had an
unobstructed view of the ground during our final descent.

As we descended, I was looking out the window at the city.  We were
flying over a mostly residential area.  The view was very clear, and
it was dark.  I am uncertain of our altitude at this time, but I
could clearly make out houses, streets, cars, etc..

What appeared to be a low flying plane caught my attention and I
followed it's movements.  I noticed that this craft was extremely
low, and decided it must be a helicopter because I could not see
an airport in the direction it was heading (opposite the heading
of the 727 I was in) and small planes do not fly several hundred
feet above residential neighborhoods (an estimate) unless they are

The craft had a series of white lights in front, not blinking.
So far, so good - nothing odd at all, a helicopter or small plane
with lights in front flying low over residential areas. NOTE: most
of this is in hindsight; At the time, I simply considered the thing
a helicopter and followed it with my eyes.

As I continued to watch, I noticed several VERY strange things.
FIRST:  This thing was probably more like 20-50 feet above the
treeline of the residential area(S) that it was flying over - I
thought it was higher because of it's parallax motion (difference in
motion between something nearer to you and something farther) and
my guessed speed of the 'helicopter', which brings me to SECOND:
This thing was flying fast! - not unreasonably so, but probably in
the 150-300 mph range (remember, this thing was flying low).  But the
most disturbing thing was THIRD: It passed over a lighted street
intersection (I could see no cars on the streets in this area)
and I had my first glimpse of it's silhouette - it was perfectly round.

I had perhaps a second (or a close fraction, thereof) of a view of
the craft flying over this lighted intersection, but it was ample
time for the shape of the craft to register without doubt in my mind.

At this point, I felt slightly panicky (up until I saw it's shape,
I was simply assuming that this thing was a helicopter).
I probably looked a bit odd, as I snapped my head at the window and
exclaimed (perhaps a bit loudly) "What the fuck?"

I continued to watch the craft (now almost obsessed with it, with
my face pushed against the window), but the plane I was on was
getting lower and the craft was getting farther away
(continuing in a linear direction, very low and rather rapidly).
Eventually, my view became obstructed by the wing of the 727 and
my sighting ended.

If I hadn't seen this thing's shape, I would have never given it a
second thought.  As it stands, I know beyond a reasonable doubt that
this thing had a circular silhouette.

In retrospect, I find it interesting that it was flying so low -
definitely too low for it to be picked up on radar.

Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

Apparently, today in the am, two people, not known to each other,
independantly reported a ball with a green fire like tail moving towards
Bothel.  It was reported in the news.  I personally didn't see the report
but trust the person who told me.
This is in the Seattle area, and it will be interesting to see if
abductions are reported, or if they were in the area only to visit Jimi
Hendrix' grave and purchase rare Nirvana Bootlegs.
Seriously though, if anyone knows more, please post.

as promised, the sighting report.
date: saturday febuary 25th 1995. roughly midnight. location: Sale, south manchester.

three people watching television noticed a bright pink light outside their window, they went outside to see what it was and saw a large pink light in the sky accompanied by a smaller light, also pink. the lights were surrounded by a hazy pink glow (possib
ly just due to the atmospheric conditions diffusing the light). they appeared to be roughly 500 meters away, the larger seemingly 2 ft in diameter (these are my interpretations based on speaking with one of the witnesses and comparing what they saw with n
earby objects). the lights moved down towards the ground leaving vapour trails, as the three people moved round the house to get a better view, the objects dissapeared. they were not seen dissapearing, they just weren't there when they got round the house
. Allthough the witnesses did not know exactly what time it was, they say that they experienced no missing time as the TV show they were watching before hand was still running as expected.

i have advised them to contact Manchester airport an/or the police and ask if they had any other reports or explainations. whatever comes of this i will let you all know.

Hong Kong: Scientist are investigating  a mysterious flying object in
southwestern China, which witnesses said chopped in half nearly two miles
of forest trees.

Has anyone heard anything other than this? Any possible explanations?

My first reaction was that it might have been a Russian test plane of some
description but I don't think that would have been structurally strong enought
to cause such damage. A meteorite also would have had to been fairly large to
cause damage on that scale, and would have hit with a huge bang!

Any ideas?

On March 7th My father and I were on our way home in a remote
area North east of Lake Superior.  As we were driving we saw
what appeared to be a huge building or stadium on a high hill.
 I remarked about never seeing a building there before.  As we
proceeded up the road, the building started moving toward us,
at a fast rate.  Finally what we thought was a building was
along side us.  It was some sort of craft, it was huge.  It had
4 lights in front, and one larger light underneath.   These
lights were an off white color and did not illuminate anything
but the craft itself.  The craft hovered to the left and in
front of us for about a minute, it then angled down at us and
approached us.  We thought it might hit us.  It then tilted
back and hovered over us.   As we continued to travel east on
the road we passed under the object.  It was gray in color, had
lots of strange things on the underside.  This object was wedge
shaped and huge.
  This happened on the 7th at 9:00 at night.  After we passed
under the craft, it was gone!  The was no sound from the craft.
 It was huge, the underside light was as large as my house.  It
was watching us, and I'm not a nut.  Since seeing this craft it
has made thinking of anything else difficult.  I would like to
talk to someone who might have seen something simular.  I know
it was there, and so does my father.  I am 41 years old and
have never seen anything like this before nor have I heard of
anything like it.  My father is 70 and he too has never seen
anything like it.  Both of us felt we were being observed by
this craft.
   Please if you have any insight into this sort of thing
contact me.  I'm really  being plagued by it.
                 Thank you,

was a long wedge shaped object with 4 large glowing orbs in front and one
larger one underneath.  My father and I both saw it and are curious as to
whether others have seen such a craft.  It hovered over us and we passed
under.  The lights did not give off any sort of beam, they glowed to
illuminate the craft.  Once under the craft, it was gone!  We saw if from
some distance, maybe a mile and it approached us and tilted and lowered
itself to observe us or so it seemed??  Please any info on this topic
would be greatly appriciated.  I haven't been able to think of anything

I was driving back from work relatively late on Monday night.
I could see a large bright light - oh, like Sirius or Venus - over the
hills on my left. To keep a better watch on it I slowed down. It didn't
appear to be moving; or if it was, it was moving slowly. As I was driving
along I had to keep my eyes on the road as well as the object.
Suddenly, after checking the road, I looked back at the object, and it had
turned into *two* bright lights about the brightness of Venus.
It still didn't appear to be moving. So I kept my eyes on it for about
another minute or two, when - WOW! Both lights just disappeared.

I can assure you this isn't a hoax, so comments please...

We had several calls about that UFO from all over the eastern United
States.  Many from law enforcement agencies, air trafic controlers,
and even an airline pilot.  They all described the same object, so it
is  reasonable to assume that it was the same UFO.  The time frame of
when the sightings occured (between  01:00 GMT and 01:30 GMT) on the
15th of March, makes it pretty certain it was the same UFO.

characteristics such as climbing in altitude, making sharp angular turns,
decreasing then increasing in speed, as well as hovering stationary. I

Just a brief report...  Actualy this is the first time I saw something I
can't quite explain.

Where: State Hwy 9 in Iowa traveling west, about 5 miles east of Rt63
My position.  I was driving in my car with the window completely down.
Time: about 1:30pm
WX: abt 63degrees. Light breeze out of west. Mostly Sunny, a few cumulus
clouds but not many.
Date 3/16/95
Other Aircraft: 3 or 4 high flying jets.  12 to 15 jet trails in sky.
What I saw:  Looking at a jet, just before entering a clowd bank, flying
west to east, I noticed a bright (reflective) object about 2 degrees
ahead of the jet.  It seemed elongated and rotating.  The reflection
varied with a cycle of about .75 seconds.  Its length seemed to be about
twice that of the jet.  Using the jet and the neadby clowd as references,
it seemed to be ahead and below the jet.  It was traveling almost due
south, much faster than the jet.  The object left no exhaust trail.  I
saw it for about 5 seconds before it went into the cloud.  checked my
glasses to be sure it wasn't a reflection.  It wasn't.  There were no
trees in the area and the onjy birds birds around were pheasants feeding
on the ground.

I would appreciate e-mail speculation.  I am most certainly not a
crack-pot, actualy I am a UFO skeptic (not unbeliever).

Hi everyone,

This is first time I am posting to this group, so forgive me if I'm
doing anything wrong.

I've just seen a news report about a UFO report in Ballymena, made by a
farming family. This is the first sighting I have ever heard of here in
the North, only previously hearing about USA/UK sightings on
mainstream TV documentary shows. As the reporter pointed out, the area
is a level-headed farming community which makes the report all the more

The woman said that her son came into the living room and called them
outside to see the UFO. After some effort the son managed to get his
father and mother to come oustide to the back yard. A floating object
about 40foot wide emitting light, and with what the woman described as
arms with extra lights which as she put it 'appeared to breath' and
spin around was hovering above their yard. The object then zoomed away
at high speed.   Since the story was run in the local paper 'The
Ballymena News' 16 more people have contacted the reporter with
sightings. No sound was given off by the hovering object.

I have to say, the whole story however incredible does appear to come
from a 'normal' country family. I do feel that 'something' must have
occured.... but what was it....?

Any more info. on this sighting on the 'net?  Any thoughts/ideas for a
scientific reason to explain what the family saw.

Thanks for your time,

flying in wild patterns very low and slow. I also saw a small silver
object about 1,000 feet up. It was silent but I'm shure it was there. It
was just hovering there, I am an aviation freak so I could tell it wasn't
anything I reconised.

On the twenty-ninth of March, 1995, three simulteanous
reports of strange lights were reported to various
law agencies throughout southwest Mississippi. The
object puportedly made a ground landing near the
vicinity of Tylertown in a small wooded community
referred to as Bedwell Manor.  The calls originated
from this area as residents complained of strange lights
and most unusual humming coming from inside the woods.
A heavy rainfall precluded the futher investigation of
phenomenon.  The residents state that the occurence began
at 3:45 p.m., but the calls were not placed until 6:45 p.m.
The testimony of the observers states the calls were placed
immediately after the sightings, but a time difference
of three hours exist before any agencies were notified.
Widespread electrical disturbances were reported throughout
the tri-county area.  The three hours lost to the
observers remains unaccounted for, but the full invest-

Translation from Die Burger, Cape Town,  Friday 31 March 1995, p5
"Vrystaatse vlie"ende piering h'et bakkie laat stol, s^e boer"

Free State Flying Saucer _did_ stall truck, says farmer
Own office: Bloemfontein

A flying saucer as wide as the road and between 6 and 9 m high landed in the
road in front of him, according to a Coligny farmer.

"I know people will dismiss it as rubbish and will think I'm crazy, but I
definitely did see it. I _had_ to report it to the police", Mr Jan Pienaar
(45) said to our  Bloemfontein office.

Several people from Bloemfontein alleged that they also saw a UFO yesterday
- one even captured it on videotape.

Mr Pienaar was travelling at 7.30am on the road between Coligny and
Brakspruit when he encountered the flying saucer.

"It suddenly stood right in front of me in the middle of the road. My truck
stalled and when I got out something like a magnetic field prevented me from
moving. The UFO was about 90 m from me. It stood on three legs and hummed
softly, like an electric motor.

"It was beautiful - metallic like stainless steel, but also in a strange way
transparent. It also had red, green and purple lights. The shape was like an
upside-down bowl with two ridges on top.

"After about three minutes the legs on which it stood slowly lifted from the
ground and folded away. I could see a row of small windows on the top ridge,
before it rose as fast as a lightning bolt"

A police spokesman said the Bloemfontein flying squad was notified about
2.20am yesterday of the UFO. Members of the service saw a bright light and a
member of the public captured it onn videotape.
According to Mr Matie Hoffmann, physicist and amateur astronomer, it could
be a weather balloon, kite or anything with a sharp light.

Later on a report was made that seven of these lights were seen flying in

Just thought I'd share the news that 3 ships were sighted last night here in
South Africa in a province called the Orange Free State.  This is a
conservative mainly right-wing part of the land where people are
traditionally very fundamental Christian!  Apparently the ships were noticed
due to there being the presence of a very strong white light which lit up
the area around, followed by the the ships changing colours, red to green to
purple said one witness; red to yellow to crimson said another.

Coincidentally (?!) we have a French UFOlogist here at the same time who
reported sighting similar ships to these earler in the same day about 700
kms away!

Anyone got any ideas as to who/what these were. Where they might come from

THis is one time I am VERY glad to have access to the i-net.  Please comment

When was this Wyseville (??), VA sighting?

My sister had a sighting in Midlothian, Va along
Salisbury Road last week..

The car lit up from behind and she assumed it was
a car behind her.. till the light passed overhead.

It was moving fairly rapidly.. then it seperated into
2 parts.. one was a white light that shot off to
the right, slowed, then vanished

the other became a large white and yellow light
that moved to the left and forward.. hovered..
it had a glowing 'halo' around it..  it then proceeded
to shoot off very fast out of view.

Rapport, Sunday 2 April 1995, p5
"UFO" landed to repair hole in fuselage, says farmer
By Buks Pietersen, Johannesburg

One of the unidentified flying objects that had the whole country excited by
their colourful movements in the skies above the northern provinces should
visit a panel
beater. It needs serious repair work.

When this saucer-like object was seen from up close for the first time on
Thursday morning by a farmer from Great Marico in the Western Transvaal
plains, it clearly had a hole in the hull.

The farmer, Mr Jan Pienaar (45) thinks that the craft landed on a remote
farm road between Coligny and Brakspruit to repair the damaged hull. His
arrival probably caused the craft to depart suddenly.

On his near-collision with the strange craft from outer space, Mr Pienaar
said it was a sensation he would never forget. The feeling of utter
bewilderment he experienced for three or four minutes he still finds
difficult to describe.

"It was approximately eight-thirty in the morning when I came around a bend
in the road and saw a black man shielding his face from something with his
arm. At that moment the engine of my new truck cut out for no reason.

I looked up. It was a beautiful sight. About eighty meters away from me this
huge thing stood on three legs across the road. The entire width of the road
and eight to nine meters high.

The thing was so transparently shiny as if it could have been made from a
kind of stainless steel. It had the shape of two porridge plates stuck
together with a pudding bowl on top. On the top edge it would appear as if
there were about seven hatches or windows.

>From somewhere lights in red, purple, green and yellow lit up the hull of
the craft. In the glow I could see there were problems. On the seam of the
edge was a dent with a hole of somewhat less than half-a-meter.

I could see no creatures in the vicinity. It was only the magnificent craft
standing there and humming like a huge electric mixer.

I got out of the truck but couldn't move a yard. It was as if a magnet
sucked me to the earth.

For about three, four minutes I stood there. Then, suddenly the craft rose
up. First like a helicopter, to find direction, and then like a lightning
bolt over the trees into the sky."

Mr Pienaar said it took him quite a while to come to his senses. When he
turned the key to his truck, it started immediately.

He looked back to see what became of the black man that the saw earlier. The
only thing visible was his jacket flapping in the wind as he pedalled his
bicycle down the dirt road.

>From a farm close by he called the police, just to hear that UFO's were
noticed the previous night in several places accross the northern provinces.

About half an hour later Mr Pienaar passed the spot again. This time another
farmer from the vicinity, Mr Chap Smith, was with him. They stopped at the
place where he saw the flying craft the first time.

When they got out, the ground was still hot. So hot that it burned a
person's hand. In the air hung a strange smell, nearly like chloroform.
There was still no sign of the old black man.

Some sighting report that the Center has recieved from credible
sources (law enforcement, airline pilots, ect.) have put the object
seen moving at speeds well over 36,000 mph at low altitude, and no
noise.  So I have no problem with the idea that the same object could
be seen with in several states within a short time span.

No, just because it sound improbable doesn't mean it is.  As far as
the sighting on that happened around the 15th of March you can make
two assumptions.

1:  It was the same object that was seen over the eastern half of the
    US (due to time frame and descriptions of the object)


2:  There was a whole fleet of similar objects buzzing the eastern
    half of the US.(this is just as likely, use the reasons given in

Either one of these assumption is valid.

As a UFO investigator I try to keep all options open.  I may be right,
or I could be wrong, I'm only human and I make mistakes.  I base any
assumption that I make off of the available facts that I have, but I
am very willing to make adjustment to my assumption when I recieve new
data and try to stay open minded as possible.

From reports that came in from the National UFO Reporting Center there were
sightings of a UFO over Orlando, Leesburg, Ocala, and Gainsville around
the 19th of this Month.  The same UFO was sighted over several midwest states
and New York.
