- St. Charles, Illinois Objects And Missing Time
- Date: Late autumn/winter of 1972
- Time: Evenings
- Hello Brian, This is what I witnessed and experienced
in late autumn/winter of 1972. I was seven at the time, but remember this
as clearly as if it happened last week.
- There are some simple drawings of this event to help
clarify what is not apparent in the report.
- This sighting took place approximately 40 miles NW of
Chicago in St. Charles, Illinois.
- My brother and I shared a bedroom and due to the positioning
of our beds we could easily see out of both windows in our room. His window
faced east and if I lay in bed, normally there was a clear view of the
eastern night sky from my position.
- At some point in the night, which I estimate to be around
2:00 to 3:00 am., I awoke suddenly. By awoke, I mean completely awake,
extremely coherent and clear. To give an example, each of us may have had
moments in our lives that are completely lucid, more so that what we normally
experience a majority of the time. This was one of those moments.
- As I awoke, these words clearly and loudly formed in
my mind: "I am being monitored." I can assure you this was not
my normal mode of speaking at that age.
- As this happened, my eyes opened and were in perfect
focus. Out of my brother's window, in my clear line of sight, I saw two
white, luminescent orbs that appeared to be less than a mile in the sky.
- If one were to drop a straight line down from where they
were situated, it would have landed in a field/forest area approximately
1/2 mile slightly east-northwest from our house. This is a significant
observation, only I would not know it until about ten years later.
- It was a clear night and the orbs were easily distinguishable
from the stars by both their size and brightness. They were horizontal
to each other, motionless, and from my viewpoint they looked like they
were only about an inch apart, which means they could have been a fair
distance from each other.
- As soon as I had the aforementioned thought and saw the
two orbs, a line of light, like a laser, encircled the orbs so that it
appeared as if each orb was at either end of an oval right made of light.
The oval ring formed in about 5/10ths of a second in a counter clock-wise
direction starting from the top of right orb.
- The body of the oval then filled with light (this happened
very quickly), only not as bright as the orbs, or the oval ring, and the
now unitary formation shot up into the night sky with such speed as can
only be imagined. I have never since seen anything move that fast, even
in movies with special effects, nothing compares to this.
- The thing about this is that it really, truly feels like
they were surprised that I woke up and knew I was being "monitored".
I get the definite impression that it started "them", that it
was not suppose to happen.
- I got out of bed and walked over to my brother's bed
to see if I could get an even better view of the sky and maybe see them
still hovering but they were gone.
- As one might imagine, sleep did not come easily for the
remainder of the evening. There was no confusion about this. Even at the
fact that I had no inclination to tell anyone, even though I was an extremely
talkative boy at the time. It was not that I was afraid of not being believed
or anything, there was simply no desire to say anything. Very unusual in
- Now, fast forward about ten years. I was walking home
from a friend's house that was in the vicinity of the field/forest area
I mentioned earlier. It was about 1:00 a.m. and the walk home would take
maybe 10 minutes max. I walked in my door at about 5:10 a.m., according
to the clock on the wall. basically, there are 4 hours of missing time.
Although we used to party a little back then, on this night I was completely
- The last thing I remember is walking by that field/forest
area thinking, "this is where I saw that UFO", which is what
I always thought when going by there.
- About a month or so later the missing time scenario happened
again, only this time I was aware of something else. I became extremely
tired and sleepy as I passed this area. Even though I was only less than
three minutes from home, I "decided" to lay down in the weeds
that grew in a ditch off the side of the road that was the entrance to
the field/forest area and take a nap. Again, this was about 1:00 a.m. and
again I walked in the door around 4 hours later at approximately 5:25 a.m.
- It may be also be prudent to mention some anomalies about
the above mentioned field/forest area. This area was prime real estate,
close to Hwy, 25, with easy access to other paved roads, sewer and power
lines. Yet, for all the time that I lived there (about 15, years), only
one developer tried to build any housing and they did not complete the
project. Not sure why.
- This land, in early times, must have been part of a farm
because there was an old, topless concrete silo on the far east end near
the hwy. he odd thing about this is that someone always kept it completely
painted in a bright orangish color. We had plenty of farms in out general
area and never did I see any color even remotely close to that on any silo.
It seemed like it got repainted every so often though I do not remember
anyone doing this.
- About the only thing I can add to this mystery is that
I have often pondered on the means by which one could be "monitored"
as stated above. I have a very good, detailed remembrance of my childhood
and after some serious reflection, I may have stumbled on to another clue.
- As I recall, it was in that general time frame that I
was getting a lot of my teeth filled because we were told that I had cavities,
even though I do not believe I had as many cavities as I have fillings.
- For a long time, I did not think much about it, except
for the passing cynical thought that the dentist was trying to pay off
his mortgage early, but by and large this subject never entered my thoughts.
- Over the past few years, I have noticed that others in
my age group and that lived in that part of the country seem to have had
an inordinate amount of fillings. It my memories, I remember that when
we laughed as children playing often do, I could see all the fillings the
other children had.
- The other thing about the dentist that seems strange
to me is that until I was a teenager, whenever I went in for a filling,
he chose to use gas rather than Novocain, which may very well be the standard
procedure, at least back then.
- Thank you for reading my report.
- Thank you to the person for the report.
- Transcona, Manitoba Objects Stunned Residents & Object
Hovers Over Highway
- Date: 1975 or 1976
- Time: Evening.
- Brian, With regards to your recent phone conversation
concerning UFOs, the following are the events which I witnessed, each several
months apart, in 1975 or 1976
- I've included as much detail as I can recall, perhaps
more than necessary, but you can edit it. I hope I have explained it well
enough to make sense. Feel free to call me if you have any questions or
if it is not clear enough.
- The occurrences regarding the "star" which
enlarged to the size of a large moon (though oval instead of round like
the moon) is the one which is completely unlike anything I have ever heard
or read about. It you know of a similar sighting I would be very interested
in hearing or reading about it.
- I think my daughters (names removed) and others who know
me, would agree that I'm quite stable - minded, not easily excited, and
I question everything !
- Thank you for your interest.
- In July, 1973, I moved with my husband and my daughter,
aged 11, into a house on the western outskirts of Transcona, a Winnipeg
suburb. It was part of a new government development, one block of houses
backed by government owned Condos. The houses, all along one side of the
street, faced older, privately owned homes across from us. It was a couple
of years before we got cement sidewalks and street and another couple before
streetlamps were installed. At the eastern end of our street, Plessis Road,
was well-lit and part of the older section of Transcona. Our new street,
Kernaghan Ave., was only one block long.
- I believe it was the summer and fall of 1975 or 1976
when several unexplained events occurred, months apart.
- Incident #1
- On a beautiful sunny day, my husband and I were chatting
with a neighbor lady in front of our house. At about the same moment, we
all noticed two triangular - appearing objects, gleaming against a clear,
cloudless blue sky in the north, northwest.
- We couldn't determine if the outward projection was part
of the main object or a short, powerful energy steam - certainly not like
the jet-stream of some aircraft. It was more solid looking and bright.
They shone like stars, probably from the sun which was in the northwest,
and the object were absolutely motionless for perhaps 3 to 5 minutes.
- Then, in perfect unison, they shot upward, then turned
very sharply and sped away in a north, northeastern direction and disappeared.
The entire motion took only a second or less.
- We couldn't judge the altitude, though they appeared
to be about the size of large, bright stars. We agreed that the speed had
to be in excess of 2000 miles per hour, probably a gross understatement.
- Incident #2
- On evening I went to bed while my husband stayed up to
read in the living room. It was around 10:00 p.m., or so, but I couldn't
sleep. After about a half hour, for no reason other than restlessness (it
was very quiet), I got up and stood at the window which faces north. I
was gazing at the stars which were bright against the dark sky. No streetlamps
had been installed yet which made the stars more visible than we normally
see in the city.
- When I turned my attention to the right, the northeast,
I caught sight of what appeared to be a star, then a plane, but it was
moving very erratically toward the northwest. It stopped every 5 to 20
seconds, as a plane will appear to do when changing directions. But in
this case the bright light never stopped or dimmed, but remained steady.
It would stop, with no regularity as to distance between stops, and then
continue on it's path.
- I was quite fascinated and continued to watch it as it
made its way across the sky in this fashion, as though its intention was
to be seen. When it reaches a point in the northwest, it began to curve
southward and continued in it's stop and go pattern. When it appeared,
I would lose sighting of it. I ran through the living room to the front
door, insisting that my husband come too. We went outside and stood on
the sidewalk facing west. Beyond the end of the street was open prairie,
undeveloped for several miles and quite dark at night. The lights from
Winnipeg could be seen on the horizon beyond that. Even there, the sky
was dark and stars clearly seen.
- My husband and I stood silently watching the "star"
as it continued its southward path. When it was exactly in line with out
sidewalk, it stopped for a few seconds, then suddenly it zoomed toward
us in a direct line (more than half the distance, I would guess) and as
it came towards us it increased in size until it became the size of a large
moon, like a harvest moon, except oval in shape.
- It glowed in a very bright, yet soft light and seemed
to pulse as it hovered there for perhaps ten seconds, then it zoomed back
to its original size and position. It stayed there for a few more seconds
(10-15), then continued its journey southward and we soon lost sight of
it as it disappeared behind the black silhouette of tall trees.
- I turned to my husband, who looked stunned, and asked
him "Did you see what I saw and what it did?"
- He shook his head and went inside and refused to talk
about it. He later denied he'd seen anything unusual and I never spoke
to him about it again. He seemed quite shaken at the time and I felt that
he might have been afraid. However, I'm not so sure of that now, in light
of another event concerning another neighbor.
- Incident #3
- Later one night, perhaps close to midnight, I sat alone
in the living room, reading. he house was in darkness except for my reading
lamp. The sofa where I sat faced the larger window, looking north, and
the drapes were partly open. Outside, it was very dark and the sky was
covered with an unusually thick layer of very dark clouds which I hadn't
noticed earlier. They were very low.
- Very suddenly, the entire room lit up as bright as daylight
and I rushed to the window in time to see a bright light above the clouds,
moving toward the north. I couldn't see the craft, but judging from the
expanse of light coming through the clouds, it appeared to be the size
of a football field - the nearest description I can give. It was moving
steadily, directly northward until it vanished from my sight, rather slowly.
I would guess no more than 40 to 50 miles per hour, and there was absolutely
no sound or vibration of any kind, nor any other sound or activity from
any local source.
- I know it was not a signal light from the Winnipeg airport
which was more then 10 miles to the west, because on the few occasions
when I observed that light, it moved in an arc, counter clockwise, and
the circular path was evident, besides which it would have reflected on
the underside of the clouds. The light I saw moved in a straight direct
path northward until it faded and disappeared.
- In time, I got to know another neighbor who lived across
the street on Kernaghan Avenue and we became friends. One day I told her
about the incident (#2) concerning the "star" that became huge,
and mentioned my husband's reaction and refusal to discuss it. She then
told me of her strange experience.
- I few years earlier, she and her husband had been driving
home to Winnipeg (Transcona), her husband at the wheel. It was quite late
and very dark and still some miles from the city. They suddenly saw a very
large bright ball, fiery orange red which descended from the sky and stopped,
perhaps 10 feet above the road, quite low, and appeared to be in the diameter,
roughly the width of the highway. Her husband slowed the car, and stopped.
Perhaps 200 yards or so before the object. It was apparent they would
not be able to continue and would have been foolish to attempt the drive
under and passed it. They watched in silence for what seemed to be several
minutes as it hovered above the road. Then it lifted off, going straight
upward until it disappeared from site. She said they never spoke the
rest of the way home and she assumed he was as stunned as she was.
- However, the following day, upon recalling the incident,
she tried to discuss it with him, but he claimed he saw no such thing and
had no recollection of stopping the car. Is it possible that both he and
my husband really did not witness these things and were perhaps in some
sort of trance?
- We moved from Kernaghan Avenue in September of 1988 and
I have not seen these neighbors since. During the years 1974, 1975, 1976,
my husband was away a lot, working up north on hydro dam projects. There
were many changes in my life and I put the events behind me. Never recording
dates or events, but the details are still vivid in my mind.
- My husband and I separated in 1986 and later divorced.
He died in May 2003.
- I have heard many strange stories from people whose honesty
I trust, who are reluctant to confide except in someone they believe is
trustworthy, and so I consider myself fortunate in this regard.
- I only believe what I cannot find any other explanation
for, and I also believe that there will be many more such occurrences in
- Thank you to the witness for the report.
- Toronto, Ontario Low Flying Black Craft
- Date: September 2003
- Time: Approx: 12:30 p.m.
- Hi Brian, I would like to confirm the recent sighting
report, over Toronto,Ontario on August 19, 2005.The lawyer, gentleman's
description of the craft, fits like a glove that I had witnessed. Although
my date is different, on a Sunday in September 2003, at about 12:30 pm.
The amazing news on all this is also, that I found it strikingly similar,
there were no reports of this sighting witnessed on TV, radio, local newspapers
or even local ufologists. This object stood out like a sore thumb, it was
very noticeable of size and color.
- On that day in Toronto, after attending St. George Church.
I viewed that very same described, very large, low flying black craft about
2-3 miles west, over western Toronto. The best description I could give,
was the craft was "Manta shaped" and very large and black. The
altitude would be 2-3000 ft high. Two things to note about the date of
August 19, 2005. First, that it was a full moon date. Second, Toronto and
the surrounding area, had experienced a major severe storm, later that
day, at between 4:00 pm -6:00 pm. Last recorded storm of that magnitude,
was in 1953, Hurricane Hazel. So now I ask?
- Was this sighting connected to this severe storm Toronto
experienced? I really just wanted the witness to know, that he is"
not" alone of this type of sighting. The only difference is, my sighting
happen two years earlier. As well as a head shaker, that no other reports
came from any other sources. So friend, your not alone on this, I believe
you what you had witnessed. I can see the excitement and the frustrations
that must be going through your mind. Keep your head up, not down. Take
care Brian, as you know the drawing of this craft (shapes and dates) has
been posted earlier, in late July 2005. Same object.
- This eyewitness is referring to the recent sighting over
Toronto, Ontario and the report can be found at:
- Thank you to the witness for the report.
- Battleford, Saskatchewan Orange Colored Light
- Date: July 2005 (not sure of the exact day)
- Time: 10:40 p.m.
- We are 45 minutes west of the Battleford, going for a
walk with my 3 children, at 10:40 we saw a bright light in the south eastern
sky, not low, it looked like a porch light, that was how bright it was.
Then it dimmed out, we could still see an orange shape and we lost it because
my child dropped the flashlight on the ground and the batteries fell out.
It was during the month of July, don't know what day.
- Thank you to the witness for the report.
- Port Au Port Peninsula, Newfoundland Ball Had A Blueish
- Date: August 4-5th, 2005
- Time: 11:00 p.m.
- Number of witnesses: 2
- Number of objects: 1
- Shape of objects: Ball of light.
- Full Description of event/sighting: The first sighting
was during a campfire at Picadillly Park on the Port au Port Peninsula
located on the west coast of Newfoundland, where my wife, her sister and
I were camping. Looking up, I thought I saw a regular satellite, streaming
across the SW section of the sky. I was alarmed suddenly, because when
I looked closer, I could almost make out the shape of the 'satellite' with
my naked eye. The white "ball" had a blue-ish radiant aura surrounding
it. I quickly pointed it out to the woman watching and we observed it
cross overhead, appearing to gain in size by about 50% until stopping completely
among the constellations directly overhead. Still a large white ball, (approx:
3 times the size of Venus) It began to get smaller and smaller while moving
ever so much to the right. It appeared to be getting further and further
away. The woman watching this and I then had a contest to see who could
see it the longest, until just as small as the most perceptible star it
was gone. The size of a pin prick in the sky, faint and pale then gone.
What was that? Surely, not the satellite we initially believed.
- Thank you to the witness for the report.
- Rockwell City, Iowa Cigar Shaped Object Looked Like A
Shinny Metal Tube
- Date: August 7, 2005
- Time: Approx: 8:30 a.m.
- Number of witnesses: 1
- Number of objects: 1
- Shape of objects: It looked cigar shaped shinny metal
- Full Description of event/sighting: I went out into my
back yard to feed a few stray cats that have been hanging around, when
I heard a jet plane flying overhead. The sky was clear and bright so I
could see the plane real good. It could of been a jet, because all my attention
was on the other unknown object that the sun light was reflecting off so
brightly. The plane looked mid sized, maybe a 12 seater and the UFO was
just a little larger. At first I thought they were going to crash into
each other. But the UFO was maybe about a few 100 ft below the plane. The
plane was traveling normal speed, but the UFO was moving real slow. It
looked like it was just floating, the only sound I remember hearing was
from the plane. Whoever was in the plane had to of seen it or been blind.
- The UFO was moving East and the UFO was moving North.
As the plane continued on the UFO just seemed to stop almost directly above
me. So I rushed inside to grab my binoculars. It only took me less then
25 seconds. But when I rushed out and looked up, it was gone. I stayed
outside and looked for it for about 30 minutes. But I never saw it again.
But like I said, whoever was in that plane had to of seen it. This happen
over 2 weeks ago, so I may be off a little on the exact date, give or take
a day or two. Also, I found a picture that someone else had taken that
looked just like the one I saw except it was about 20% smaller as to how
far away it was.
- Anyway, thanks for caring.
- Thank you to the witness for the report.

- France In The Essonne, Morsang Sur Orge Bright Light
During The Day
- Date: August 9, 2005 Time: Daylight sighting.
- My name is (name removed), I live in France in the Essonne,
Morsang sur Orge! On 09/08/2005, I prepared a grill by looking at the sky
and seeing the chemtrails left by the planes. I took my Camera (SONY Handycam
72X, super 8 band), and I started to film the planes with their traces
of condensations. By finishing this I saw a star in full day!
- But contrary to stars, that one emits a sharp white light,
it was OUEST-SUDOUEST around 75° compared to the ground! I succeeded
in filming the object, zooming on it and even with the quality of this
camera, one does not recognize nor plane, nor space shuttle (which has
landed some minutes before by 14:12), but a luminous ball which emit depressions
and which changes size at the same time! The only matter is that I don't
own any material to transform my video sequence on any computer file! And
TV channels are not really believing me when I call them! If you have some
contact in France, we can meet at any time to watch what I have!
- HBCC UFO Research Note: I have contacted a French researcher
and hoping to hear from him. If i don't i will be looking for someone else
who might care to look into the case, footage, etc who of course resides

- Port Alberni, British Columbia Circular Object Filmed
- Date: August 15, 2005
- Time: 7:30 p.m.
- HBCC UFO Research Note: I haven't typed up the report
on this sighting in Port Alberni, B.C. as of yet, but I will soon. I found
out about the UFO sighting through a friend who works at one of our local
stores here in town. They told me that an entire family watched, and video
taped a strange object and that Global TV had done and interview with the
family and ran the footage. So to start with, I thought I would place a
short audio clip to the site of the young girl telling in her words what
she witnessed. She was such a delightful child to speak with, I also spoke
with the Mother and Father who explained the events also.

of the object.
- Peru, Indiana Object Appearing As A Triangle ?
- Date: August 19, 2005
- Time: Between 11:15 - 11:30 p.m.
- Hello Brian
- So here's the scoop. On my way home from work on August
19, 2005 the time was between 11:15 - 11:30 pm. As I was approaching the
area where I saw the object I pulled over to start filming on which I normally
have a DV camera with me pretty much all the time lol. Now mind you that
I have seen this object before and never did record anything because of
no DV cam, now I have it with me all the time. There were some cloud cover
but it was well below the cloud lining. The object was moving from South
to North then it changed direction North to South which I believe the reason
was that there was another approaching aircraft which was an airplane that
was coming from the West.
- That to me is not normal! But the interesting part is
that I took the film and went frame by frame. What I saw was simply amazing
to me. The object I could not tell the shape other than it appearing as
a triangle because of three dimly lit lights it had on all the time, two
above one on the bottom. I did not notice this at first but when I viewed
the film by frame lights would be changing color. Then out of nowhere
a reddish pinkish light lit up to the left then that changed color to green.
The top left light and bottom light at the same time flashed white then
the top left would flash yellow or a blue. It just changed color when
ever. But when you see the clip pay close attention to this its quick
but its there! My location was on an entrance to a gravel pit looking
South, Peru IN. Any questions just email me thanks.
