BARNEGAT BAY-- Jeanne writes I have about one minute of video tape of my sighting. I saw the two lights above the trees on February 11, 2000. On the tape the date is not correct but I seem to have gotten something. When I viewed the tape there appears to be a third object in the upper left of the two brighter lights. When I first saw the white objects in Waretown, New Jersey they were hovering above the trees , but as soon as I opened the blinds they descend below the trees. There is only my home on this deserted street with woods in the back where I saw the UFO's. But when we investigated the spot I found the UFOs were actually over part of the Barnegat Bay. From my backyard all you can see are endless woods that back up to the inlet of the Atlantic Ocean.
I first saw these ships around 11:30 PM and they hovered and moved up and down for about three hours. I really believe they saw me because if I just cracked the vertical blinds they were above the trees. As soon as I opened two verticals to watch them, they quickly went below the trees like it was a game. I was too afraid to go outside or I would have a better filming of this event. This was the first time in my life I ever used a video camera so while I would try to get between the verticals my pictures would be shot of my floor. I used the zoom lens and zoomed in and out a lot. The next night I heard a loud sonic boom similar to what we heard all summer long around 4:00 AM twice a week. I thought something was coming through my house since it shook like an earthquake for about three seconds. I ran to the back verticals and saw five fighter jets whiz by. Thanks to: J cat0892I
BALTIMORE - Bill Bean writes, I would like to report my latest video footage. I shot it on February 29, 2000. My wife and I were going to visit friends in the Baltimore area, and I felt something was urging me to take my camcorder, so I did. We arrived at the home of Debbie and Frank Hutchinson. I asked if I could set up my camcorder on his front porch? and he said sure. I turned the camcorder on its tripod and pointed it south. We let the camera run until 10:56 PM when we went inside to play it back. There were only a few airplanes until 10:31 PM. Then a craft appeared flying at a very low altitude with no sound. The thing looked white [yellowish] in color and had a weird flicker to it [like a flame]; it was there for about twenty seconds, before it slowly moved to the west. It also appeared to be projecting a light downward. At 10:37 PM out of the east, two objects come into the frame moving very slowly one behind the other. This object gets to about the middle of the frame and stops and puts out a very bright glow. It starts moving again and heads off to the south.
At 10:39 PM a group of flickering objects can be seen, one slowly heads west reverses itself and slowly moves east. One above it heads east and suddenly reverses towards the west. The two appear about the same altitude and pass each other in close proximity. The one heading east, stops and glows bright white. A third object comes in from the east at 10:41 PM and comes dangerously close to the one heading to the east. We reviewed the tapes and Frank said, " airplanes do not reverse and do not fly that close to each other." I said, "You're exactly right, I just wanted to hear it from you!" The camera was in focus the whole time. We went outside and the only thing we saw and heard was an airplane at a much higher altitude. The shape of these things reminded us of pillars and chariots of fire mentioned in the bible. Thanks to BILL BEAN. (Bill & Linda Bean)
CHATSWORTH -- MUFON Georgia State Director writes that he has investigated the October 16, 1999 at 10:30 PM sighting. Drew a business owner observed light from his home that is situated at the top of Fort Mountain. An unidentified object was moving over the valley below. It was a round bright light hovering about a mile away. It was drifting very slowly from left to right as he watched. It would change from the size of basketball at arm's length to the size of a baseball. He could see it pass behind some thin branches of a small tree in is yard. It expanded again to the size of a basketball and disappeared. The witness is of high standing in the community and is well educated. There is a preponderance of UFO reports from the Fort Mountain indicating something is going on in the area. It is possible that piezoelectric or floating plasma like effects is occurring due to tectonic stress of a geologic formation. Most of the UFOs have been reported coming down from high altitude, rather than low-level lights often associated with this phenomenon. Another witness has observed several unmistakable solid anomalous craft at very close range. There is no indication that celestial or weather related objects are responsible for this case. Low flying aircraft in this valley at night would be suicidal due to ridges, peaks, and cell phone towers. Other unusual events have been reported along this Blue Ridge Corridor. In December, residents reported earth tremors particularly in the afternoon. Seismologists at Georgia Tech indicated there had been no earth tremors. These fairly regular sightings indicate there is anomalous cause to this sighting. Thanks to Tom Sheets
TROUP COUNTY - John Thompson one of our country's finest investigators writes, "A circle of lights was seen rising from behind a wood line in extreme north Troup County, just west of Highway 219." The sighting took place on January 27, 2000, at about 12:30 a.m. The 25 year-old witness said he, his friend and his friend's girlfriend were standing outside when they noticed a circle of "red and blue round lights" come straight up only a few hundred yards away. On reaching a level above the woods, the ten to twelve bright lights went streaking to the east just north of their location. The lights, which may or may not have been flashing, were exceptionally bright the young man said. They appeared to be located around the bottom edge of a "saucer" shaped vehicle. Despite the lights not being far away or high, the witness said they heard no sound as the UFO past overhead. Total viewing time of the sighting was only "three seconds". The witness said all of them were certain that this was "no airplane" or helicopter because of the circular arrangement of lights, strange movements, quick speed and no engine noise being heard. He also reported that in weeks before this sighting that they had seen a large brilliant white light moving in pastures and woods behind his friend's house.
The circle of lights is reminiscent of similar sightings that were observed frequently in the Troup-Heard Corridor during 1996-97. The most recent lights seen would suggest, as the other sightings usually did, a lighted craft of car to minivan size. This, of course, is only true if we assume they are on a structured object, as most witnesses believe possible. Many times in the past these "circle of lights" have been seen to rise straight up from a pasture before departing. Unlike past sightings, however, no counter-clockwise rotation of the lights was observed according to the witness. The latest sighting took place in an extremely remote area of Troup County above the Chattahoochee River. This is only a 1/3 of a mile south of the Heard County line. The sighting occurred 28 hours before a freak snowstorm hit Troup and Heard County. While snow was forecast for most of central and north Georgia, only Troup and Heard counties received snow despite being along the southern line of forecasted snowfall. The area where the 2 1/2 inches of snow fell in the early morning hours of the Jan. 28th eerily matched EXACTLY where the "mystery boom" was heard/felt on 8/2/99 when two V-shaped UFOs were seen. While the connection is not known, freakish weather, mystery booms, and UFOs often seem to occur in the same locales. The weather according to the witness was a clear sky, with no wind and a temperature above freezing. Thanks to John Thompson.
PALOS HILLS -- A photographer in a South Chicago suburb captured three UFOs on film last week and has posted them on his website. "I was photographing contrails/chemtrails over Palos Hills, Illinois" on Wednesday, March 1, 2000, when he accidentally captured the images. "I took a series of 34 photos," he reported, "And when I viewed them I saw objects in two photos that I did not see when I took the film". He was using a Model 2700 Vivitar Digital Camera when he shot the 34 photos of the sky near Roberts Road and 103rd Street in Palos Hills. Photo No. 27 shows one UFO in the sky. Photo No. 29 shows three unidentified objects, with two of the objects "turned" or pitched at the same angle. This is the first time that UFOs in the USA's Upper Midwest have been photographed in connection with the mysterious and controversial "chemtrails." The photos may be viewed at and /022900/29.jpg.

LONOKE -- Nancy Talbot writes that on March 9, 2000, in the early morning something came down into farm fields off Allison (?) Loop Road, which created large areas of fire. Ike Bishop in Idaho called me last night, saying he had just seen a report on CBS News about a video of a burning area with flames reaching ten feet in the air. Further stating that the CBS broadcast said that NORAD had said that it "wasn't a meteorite, it wasn't space debris, and that no planes were missing." I then started calling contacts in the Arkansas area to try to get more info . I .got a contact with a woman whose daughter lives in Lonoke & whose mother lives in North Little Rock)had seen a local KVTV broadcast at about 5 PM Friday the 10th. The daughter and her husband are now out looking for the site and will try to sample it, if they can get access. The mother in N. Little Rock, who saw the local TV, broadcast, said that three were whitish-greenish crystals on the burned trees/plants. Today the Little Rock Gazette is reporting an area "40 acres" in size (over a mile long and 150' wide) of forest and farmland is burning in many if there were multiple fires over this huge area. No plane debris found yet, no craters, nothing to indicate what started the fires. Another contact of mine, JoAnne S. in Missouri called the KATV News Desk and spoke to an unidentified woman who indicated that the TV station was not putting out any more info...and the military were involved, JoAnne's impression was that the TV people knew more than they were saying and that they had been asked to stop coverage. Little Rock Air Force Base 13 miles northwest of Lonokethat has a C-130 aircraft and the fire and may have been a plane. Thanks to Nancy Talbot.
Scott Heckman writes that he has backpacked and hiked in the Dragoon Mountains for over twenty years. This is my home and backyard. I have been observing these craft during this long period time. I have located regularly used air corridors all across the Rocky Mountain States. You may use my accounts of the numerous UFOs I've seen and reported over Southern Arizona. The Dragoon Mountain location is a place where a series of unidentified craft utilizing signal-beacon communication systems are observed. They are often near the customary air corridors. The most major base that I have been able to follow the craft towards is located in the Tonto National Forest and the Tonto Basin. This is a large and very remote geological region. I discovered this while camping in the Sierra Ancha Wilderness. The UFOs kept flying down into the basin two minutes apart. They flew low, out of the southeast. at about two thousand feet above the terrain. The craft seemed to know my location as they kept avoiding me when I would relocate my position to get a better look. During the daytime A-10's use the area for training. Re-fueling practice also occurs here both day and night. After a close sighting we usually call the base and inquire if they have any night refueling operations. They often reply "they are performing low level refueling exercises". I doubt it because low level refueling at night in mountainous terrain is exceptionally dangerous. These areas have also been plagued with several unexplained disappearances that have occurred in Cochise County over the last 30 years. Cars are abandoned with people's ID; money and keys left behind. Their occupants are mysteriously missing, never to be seen again. This happens. I have made sketches of various craft and currently do not consider myself an investigator, but merely an observer, or watcher. Thanks to Scott Heckman
KAMPUNG GOBEK - The Utusan Express in Kuala Lumpur, published a story and picture on March 7, 2000, that shows a large water-filled semi-circular circular ditch. The villager's claim that an object which emitted rays of light landed in the area at 3: 00 AM. Since the report of the landing by the unidentified object, the village has had hundreds of people visit the remote area to look at the phenomenon for themselves. The village situated about 100 Kilometers from Kota Bharu town has been transformed into a carnival-like atmosphere. Many hawkers took the opportunity to put up stalls while others turned tour guides to the hundreds of vehicles converging to the area. Signs direct traffic along several roads in the village to the "mystery crater". A local Malay daily newspaper claims several saw the UFO circling the airspace of Kupang town at about 5:20 AM on Thursday, March 2 just prior to disappearing. The UFO was a big, round object with a tapering end in greenish blue color. It was less noisy than an aircraft. The Space Science Studies Division said at the time that there had been no UFO reports officially filed with them since 1994; apart from a press report on a UFO sighting in Tanjung Sepat a few years back claiming that there were constant nightly movements in the air. The formation of a crater in a marshland area is not something unusual, said an engineer from the Drainage and Irrigation Department (DID). Engineer Razali Mohamed Noor said the landing site was where an irrigation canal was built 1983 for use by the farmers, and the area may have collapsed naturally. The Kelantan Geological Survey Department will dispatch several officers there to investigate the incident. Thanks to Gerry @ Far Shores |
Dave from Skywatch writes, "Here in South Cumbria around the Morecombe Bay area, strange Flying Triangle craft are often seen, not everyday but often enough for a lot people too accept them as everyday things." This area is on a civil and military flight path, and it could be easy to disguise a flight from the ground at night. All reports I've heard off seem to fly over the bay towards Preston and the RAF Station. Rumors have emerged of a no-go area there, so if that is where the triangles are heading, that could be where some are based. One lady I know quite well confided this to me early last year. She lives in Lancaster but works in Kendal. The night was still dark, the weather was rainy, and the sky was black. As she was driving home and had a clear view of the bay, she suddenly saw lights in the middle of the bay which appeared to make triangle in shape, for a moment she thought it was the theme park Frontier Land, but then knew it couldn't be. It was not only too early in the season but also what was it doing in the middle of Morecambe Bay anyway. The lights came on for a few moments then went off just as quickly. A few days later it was reported in one of the local papers and that's what prompted her to tell me. She needed to tell some one. Last months NEXUS Magazine claims the reporting of Flying Triangles by the media are subject to 'D' Notices that restrict publication of any stories in the interest of national security. It does not matter how many people witness such crafts the media will not report any sightings of triangles in the UK. The official stand on this one is from the UK MOD who have said to the BBC, off the record, that Triangles are classified craft and confirmed they do exist within the MOD and DOD.

Editor's Note: New modern lighter than air airships could be used to carry phased array raiders. We should remember than in 1930s the dirigible Hindenberg was 820 feet long and flew the Atlantic Ocean with ease. True, it had an accident that killed some 37 lives. However these were magnificent ships and comparatively safe. In comparison train wrecks were causing almost 10,000 deaths a year. These new craft would be made from ultra light, ultra strong composite material, with surfaces looking more like conventional aircraft than the familiar blimps. Last year's Popular Mechanics article about "Stealth Blimps", and the illustration that accompanied it was probably nearer the mark than most realize! They can be made in any shape needed, such as a triangle and could carry Aegis Cruiser radar system.
Len Stringfield who died in 1994, should long be remembered as one of the great investigators into the possible of crashes UFOs. In his book, "UFO Crash? Retrievals Amassing the Evidence III" He starts off his book with the following quote: "When you have eliminated the impossible , whatever remains , however, improbable must be truth." Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

US GOVERNMENT UFO PROOF RELEASED: Audio tapes of a genuine UFO Alert at Edwards Air Force base and studied by the Foreign Technology Division at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, are now available for distribution to the public. Sam Sherman's audio documentary tape called EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE ENCOUNTER on the night of October 7, 1965, uses the actual voice recordings provided by the Air Force. During this event 12 high tech luminous UFOs invade secure air space and came down low over the runways at Edwards AFB. Tower operator Sgt. Chuck Sorrels spotted them and notified the Air Defense Command. Sgt. Sorrels is heard on the original tapes and in a new segment where he verifies the event as it is heard on the archival recordings. The UFOs are described and a decision is made to launch F-106 fighter interceptors. You are there for an important part of UFO history. Hear it for yourself, it's the best UFO tape ever made. Tape cost is $14.95 each plus $2.00 for shipping -- total $16.95 -- (for overseas orders-out of US - add $6.00 shipping cost -- total -- $20.95) you can send either a personal check or money order to: Independent International Pictures Corp, Box 565, Dept. GF, Old Bridge, New Jersey 08857.
