Urania, S.A. Australia Disc Shaped Craft And Burns On Body
Date: April 1975
Time: 9:15 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 4
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Typical disc shaped.
One night in April 1975 a friend of mine called me and asked if I wanted to go spotlighting for foxes, I said yes and traveled to his farm 10 miles south of Maitland and arrived there about 21:00 after going inside and chatting for a while to my friend Brad, his Mum Pam and another friend Michael I said that I was going outside to get things ready to go spotlighting. As I walked out the back door (facing east) I noticed what I initially thought was a large shooting star coming down from the east and to the south east but, the shooting star stopped dead at about 20 degrees above the horizon and began traveling across the sky towards the east and flashing blue red and white lights.
I yelled to the others to "Come Out Here NOW! Look At This" they came running out and we all stood in the back yard watching as the UFO traversed the horizon.
I got my rifle out of my car and began watching it through the telescopic sight and was amazed to see that it was at a guess 40 meters across and about 20 meters high disc shaped with windows around the edge of the disc and a flashing dome on top
made out of what looked like polished aluminum, it looked so close that I had to move the scope to see all of it. Brad went to the car shed to get his binoculars which was further down the yard to the east while Pam, Michael and I took turns watching through the rifle scope. After about 5 minutes Brad came back, he had been watching it through the binoculars and I could see from the porch light that he was as white as a ghost.
The UFO was at this stage around 1000 meters away and traveling towards us. I got scared and was going to have a shot at it but was told off by Pam so I lowered the rifle, as I did the UFO started to retreat and slowly move off to the North towards Maitland, we kept watching as it became just a red flashing light until it was over the eastern side of Maitland where it hovered, 4 other little red lights seemed to enter the (Mother ship) UFO and then the UFO took of in a slight arc to the east into the sky and disappeared in less that a second.
I have since seen many other lights in the sky but none more convincing than the above.
Additional Information:
There is a bit more to that sighting that I did not mention because of space. I will briefly explain.
After the sighting mentioned, I said to Pam (Brad's Mum or Mom as you say over there) that "why weren't you scared ? " she said "Oh I've seen them before they'll be back " I asked her when she had seen them before she said "When we used to live on the other farm" (which incidentally was situated about a kilometer east south east of where we all saw the UFO starting to move towards us) apparently she had gotten up through the night to go to the outside toilet and saw a UFO sitting in the paddock next to the toilet, she really didn't go into much detail about it but did say that the next day she went to the doctor complaining of burns on her face and arms, the doctor told her it was just sun burn.
I suspect that the UFO was looking for her and that I scared them of when I foolishly aimed my loaded .243 at them (which I kind of regret doing) I had even calculated that I should have hit it if I had aimed about 20 feet over the top :>)
After the UFO that the 4 of us say had gone ? I said "well let's go spotlighting guys" to which Michael said "No Way ! " I said "look we won't see it again let's go " so off we went we had shot a few foxes and were on the northern side of Maitland heading north and to our right about 800 meters, and over the tops of the trees we saw it again, I wanted to go and have a good look at it but the other's said "That's it let's go home" which we did I was out voted :>)
The craft was actually 800 meters to our right and just over on the other side of the tops of the tree line of the main bitumen road. We were on a dirt road parrallel to the bitumen road So the craft would have only been about maybe 50 feet off the ground and pacing us, we were doing about 30 Mph.

Bloomington, Indiana Flashing UFO
Date: January, 2004
Time: 2:00 - 4:00 a.m.
Hello Brian
Here is one for you, you asked about this shot before, here's the history, date, January, 2004. Time 2-4 am. Number of witness's 4 location Bloomington, Indiana conditions clear names are ok in this report.
John Tosti, Ted Roberts, Alice Evans and I, were coming home from a sky watch at a location that had a huge sighting a couple days before, John and I noticed this to the North of our location over a wildlife reserve. We told Ted to stop the van, and we went to turn on our cameras and the object winked out. We waited and nothing, we turned the cameras off, started the van and it came back on in the same spot.
This occurred a few times. John broke out a spotlight and flashed it with the light 3 times. the object flashed back 3 times then stopped, John repeated this in different numbers of flashes.. the object repeated the same number back each time all the while hovering and moving around slowly side to side and up and down. I began taping when the object started flashing back. this was all interesting, but the most interesting thing that tweaked my love for this sighting was that john decided to flash the light in a sequence, Morris code if you like.. short bursts and then long bursts of flashes, the object answered by repeating the exact same sequence of flashes. this lasted for about 10-15 minutes. Our thoughts were that this object wanted us to follow it, and from previous exp. we thought better of the idea.
Thank you to the witness for the report.

Kaufman County, Texas Disk ?
Date: November 7, 2004
Time: Approx: 3:00 p.m.
Hi Brian,
On November 7, 2004, I was admiring this unusual green cloud formation, when this object flew by. It's position was about 10 o'clock high and was banking toward the west, (looks like it's going up instead of away, what do you think)?. I thought at the time (which was about 3:00 p.m.) that it was an airplane or a white colored bird of some sort. After I downloaded it, I saw that it was not a bird and probably not an airplane either. I went frame by frame through the whole clip and I never saw an indication of a tail or an airplane type construction.
Thank you to the witness for the report, photos and clip.

Creola, Alabama Strange Object Caught On Film
Date: December 27, 2004
Time: Approx: 6:00 p.m.
I was coming home from work on the afternoon of December 27, 2004 down I-65 at around 6:00 p.m. when an object in the sky caught my eye. I quickly grabbed my camera from the back seat and managed to get one shot of it before it disappeared. The sky that day was clear without a single cloud. I can't say what it is but appears to be disk shaped. Its forward speed was slow if any. One second it was there....the next it was gone. Below is the photo in question.
Additional Information:
The location of the sighting took place on interstate I-65 just on the outskirts of Creola, Alabama. My wife and I were headed south on I-65 bridge when I decided to stop and take a photo of the span.I've included the photo below. I have a 3.2 mp digital camera with a 10x optical zoom.Photo sizes are 2048x1536. I've resized this photo to 512x384 for the sake of e-mail.
After taking this photo I returned to my car and proceeded down the bridge. It was at this point that I spotted the object. It was WNW of my position at some miles out at a height between 15000 to 25000 feet at best guess.The object did not appear as normal air traffic as it did not move much if any. I really could not define the shape of the object with the naked eye .I pointed the object out to my wife....what is that? I don't know she replied. Hold the wheel I said as I reached in the back seat for the camera. It was at that point that I zoomed in, acquired focus and snapped a shot off. After lowering the camera and looking back to where it was.... it was no more...gone...vanished. Total sighting time was no more than 30 seconds...... if that. Here is a map showing the sighting location.
The red X in the above picture is my location. The green X is the location of the object. The mobile airport is 25 miles SW of my location. Now here is the full photo of the object again resized to 512x384.
Now below is a 512x384 crop from the full size 2048x1536 photo.
I've also included a negative of the crop below.
That's it. As far as size goes....looked to be smaller than a commercial jet.
Thank you to the witness for the report and photos.

HBCC UFO Research Note: There has been a large number of witnesses reporting this similar event taking place over parts of California on the same date and roughly the same time. The reports are being investigated. Seeing there have been so many witnesses to this even I am hoping anyone else who has seen this, or other sightings around the state of California please contact me.
Paramount, California Bright Reddish Orange Lights
Date: January 1, 2005
Time: Approx: 12:00 a.m.
Dear Brian,
Tonight, my boyfriend and I were talking tonight and since we both had access to a computer as we spoke, we were curious if there were any witness accounts of what we both had seen around midnight, new years day. The report we had found, the only report we found in fact, said it had 20 witness, well, there's at least 20 more to add to it's credit. My boyfriend told me that night over the phone to look to the north eastern sky because there were 6 bright reddish orange lights in the sky all aligned. He and his family were looking at it. My little brother and I were on the other side of town viewing this as well. I thought it was especially strange because on the 29th of December, I had already seen a UFO on my way to work. it was shinny and metallic. It was moving around really weird; up, down, side to side; within and out of the clouds. My dad and I saw it. Anyways, back to the new years sighting, I didn't see it, but my bf saw that one was dropping lights down, like little letting go of little pods. On Sunday, my older brother saw it along with his best friend, his best friend's girlfriend, and the girlfriend's family which totaled ten. For the time after that, my boyfriend and I have been trying to find out what that was that we saw. I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you.
Thank you to the witness and the photos.

Montreal, Quebec Triangular Shaped Object
Date: January 2, 2005
Time: 2:30 a.m.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Triangular
Full Description of event/sighting: It was quite early in the morning of Sunday, January 2nd 2005 at about 2:30, when my girlfriend and I were looking out our window and noticed an extremely bright flickering light in the sky which immediately caught our attention. It seemed quite odd because we don't normally see many stars in the sky due to the fact we live in downtown Montreal, and what's even weirder was that there wasn't any other stars in the sky that night because it was slightly overcast.
The object was lighting up the clouds that were surrounding it as it appeared to inch closer to us, which is when I got my binoculars to get a better look at it. After focusing my binoculars (not the best binoculars mind you), the object looked as though it was triangular shaped with red lights surrounding it on the bottom. After remaining relatively stationary for some time, it began to move horizontally and vertically so quickly that I couldn't keep it in focus with my binoculars, which was also due to the fact that I couldn't keep the binoculars steady because I started shaking.
It appeared to emit a beam for the bottom of it in a triangular shape, and at that point it was the closest it came to us that night because I got a clear view of the object and the colors it was emitting.
I immediately put on the radio and checked the news but didn't hear anything, but there is no way we\'re the only ones who saw this, as it was extremely noticeable to anyone looking out their window in a south-eastern direction.
It stayed in the sky for about and hour or so, then eventually traveled north beyond our view.
I have always been somewhat of a skeptic when it comes to stories of UFO sightings, but after witnessing what I did last weekend, I am no longer.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Portland, Oregon Flashing Blue & Yellow Lights
Date: January 03, 2005
Time: 9:30 p.m.
I saw the flashing blue & yellow lights tonight at 9:30 in the ESE sky over Portland, Oregon. I do not have a telescope but it is definitely moving very slowly which makes me think it is not an airplane and it looks to be too high to be a helicopter. If you ever identify what this is please send me the info. I got your email address from this link that seems to be describing the same thing.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Grouse Mountain, Vancouver Lights
Date: January 03, 2005
Time: Evening
Last night was again cold and clear so as soon as the sun went down I aimed my camera north again to see if I could see those strange objects. But alack alas, I could not find them, did see a few of the multi colored flashing lights and several of those bright blips but nothing really interesting. I started thinking about that report you had re. the lights over Grouse Mountain. so I aimed my camera at that section of sky just over Grouse. The tape runs for approx:. 113 minutes. Right of the bat, something large and leaving a white streak passed through the view finder heading East to West.
I have no idea what it was but it was fast. It only took up about two frames and appeared to be right over the mountain. I say it must have been large as the width of the streak would have covered the entire ski run. About the only thing I've seen that fast is a bolt of lighting and that is not what that was. Anyway when the tape was played back I counted approx:. 25 of those flashes of light, which really surprised me as I've never noticed them in that part of the sky before usually they are over towards Burke Mountain. and rarely ever more than one or two during the length of a tape.
Most appeared to be really far away and quite dim but one appeared about the size of Venus during the summer, it lasted several seconds and appeared to be flickering. I zoomed in and looked at it one frame at a time and found the object was an oval shaped white thing in one frame and the next frame there would be two of them side by side and then back to one on so on. This would make it appear really bright on every second frame, which made it appear to flicker when speeded up. Kind of interesting to watch. Also saw on the same tape two apparent satellites pass through my field of vision. One was just the normal single light and the other appeared to be two lights connected by a tube. Sort of like those strings of lights I was seeing during the summer but they were usually just looking like a string of beads joined together not separated by what looked like a tube.
Also saw one commercial jet fly across the screen and must admit it really startled me for a second as all the passenger windows were lit up and just the wing tip lights showed and with the night vision on they really look strange.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Vancouver, B.C. Jellyfish Cloud But Triangular And Rectangular
Date: January 5, 2005
Time: 12:00 -2:00 p.m.
Location of Sighting: NE
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 2
Shape of objects: One triangular, one rectangle/w strip.
Full Description of event/sighting: January 5, 2005 at 12:00 p.m. I was headed out for the bus and noticed the triangular cloud that was slowly moving "against" the wind, it was coming from the NE, headed slowly SE and maintained it's original shape. At first I saw it from within my home facing due E, but when I got outside it was still there, same shape continuing on SE course. I live close to the Ocean so most of our winds are from the West, especially where I am situated. While riding the bus I also begin to notice a rectangle shaped cloud (sq shape visible inside it) with a long, long white line loosely attached to it while it moved slowly as well in the SE direction. These two clouds could have been just that, but within them you could definitely see the sharp line of something that was within the white mist. Over the two hour span I watch these items move slowly, without changing direction or shape for 2 hours.
I have never seen a cloud or clouds period, move against the wind, in this direction it would have taken quite a bit of power to do so, but then they were moving almost slow enough to fall. I'm certain somebody else within the city has noticed this, but on a clear crisp day such as this, there's no doubt someone had to see these. Clear day, cool, little to no clouds other than what I witnessed. I have been observing quite a few aerial anomalies from where I am situated. I live in the Southern part of Vancouver city, up high, 10 minutes from the airport, and fully know the fly times and routes. These were not planes, they were for all intents and purpose cloud covers for something that did not want to be seen on a clear day. These two sightings remind me of the big "jellyfish" cloud but triangular and rectangular. I am just puzzled at it. This is my first report, it won't be my last I guess.
Additional Information:
Now first spotting this was due east at 11:59 a.m today, 01-05-05. and I was preparing to go out. I ended up watching this triangular sighting for about 35 minutes in awe, and finally got up and left. Walked two blocks to 41st and Victoria, the entire sight was still above and highly visible, although I knew it was lingering far longer than it should have, every other whisp of clouds had long since disappeared, but both sightings began in the same place and moved equally slow to the SE. My estimate for total length of time for both sightings is approximately 1 hour and ...say 43 minutes, now then.....not bad for two different shapes, with tails, going same direction no other clouds around in a clear blue sky.....when was the last time you saw a triangular cloud or rectangle shaped one? This was the hook for me, = reporting.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Houston, B.C. Shrinking Bright Light Over Farmers Field
Date: January 6, 2005
Time: 5:45 a.m.
I talked to a witness who is located just south of the town of Houston, B.C., the person lives just off of Buck Flats Road and at 5:45 a.m. on January 6, 2005 she went out to start their truck early due to the cold weather and her husband heading off to his work place. As the lady walked towards the truck she looked towards the north and saw an extremely bright light, stationary low over the tree-line. The weather conditions at the time was cloudy and snowing.
She jumped into the truck and started it up, then got back out to watch the light in the sky which she knew looked out of place due to the location of it. It was sitting over top of a local neighbors fields and just above the tree tops. At one point the light did seem to shrink in size, or brightness and disappeared. It wasn't seconds later that it reappeared looking brighter than before. Eventually the object started to move towards the west where the witness finally lost sight of it. There was no sound reported coming from the object, matter of fact if it had of been an airplane or helicopter she would have certainly heard the sound it was making. The total amount of time the lady was able to view the object was for approx: 10:00 minutes.
Thank you to the witness for this report.
