Filer's Files #19

UFOs OBSERVED AROUND THE US: Reports of UFOs continue from New Jersey, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Kentucky, Illinois, and California.
Washington Times headlines for May 2 stated, "Bush favors space-based arms for missile defense" A new push for SDI (Stars Wars) weaponry is now gathering force within the executive branch. This is in addition to the Anti Ballistic Missile systems proposals. The US and Russia are now allegedly allies. The new 'Star Wars' proposals make me wonder who are we fighting against?
THE CAMPAIGN FOR UFO DISCLOSURE will be broadcast on Wednesday, May 9, 2001, Live at 9:00 AM Eastern time. Over twenty military, intelligence, government, corporate and scientific witnesses will come forward at the National Press Club in Washington, DC to establish the reality of UFOs or extraterrestrial vehicles, extraterrestrial life forms, and resulting advanced energy and propulsion technologies. The weight of this firsthand testimony, along with supporting government documentation and other evidence, will establish without any doubt the reality of these phenomena, according to Dr. Steven M. Greer, director of the Disclosure Project which is hosting the event.
Among the witnesses attending the event are: John Callahan, former Division Chief of the Accidents and Investigations Branch, FAA; Master Sergeant Dan Morris, former US Air Force and NRO operative with cosmic top secret clearance; Dr. Carol Rosin, space missile defense consultant and former spokesperson for Wernher Von Braun; Graham Bethune, retired Navy commander pilot with a top-secret clearance; Michael Smith, former Air Traffic Controller, US Air Force; Sergeant Clifford Stone, United States Army; Lt. Col. Robert Salas, former SAC Launch Controller, US Air Force and FAA, and myself Major George A. Filer III, former Air Force Intelligence Officer and flier. We are asking for Congressional, White House and UN action to allow witnesses to testify under oath in open hearings. We are requesting a Presidential Executive Order to protect witnesses afraid of violating security oaths and to declassify documents and secret projects for the benefit of all world citizens. There are reports that CNN may also carry the broadcast if it is a slow news day.
SUSSEX -- Brian Shaw writes that on May 6, 2001, at around 7:30 PM, my dad and I drove over a hill and got a good veiw of strange things in the sky. They were shiny orange dots above the mountains in the Sunset sky. We saw two objects. One was either a disk or it was a meteor debris trail. It either went below the horizon or simply disappeared, but as some vanished a few more kept popping up. Some were spots and some were disk shaped. My Mom saw one towards the end of the event, which was definitely like a meteor. One was moving faster than the others and left a trail behind it. The show ended as they all sank below the horizon or just vanished. We definitely were not imagining seeing these things, because other people were staring up into the Northwest part of the sky just over the Sunset. We saw at least ten or twelve objects there may have been more. Thanks to Brian Shaw --
Editor's Note: Last weekend, Earth passed through a trail of dusty debris from distant Comet Halley, triggering the annual eta Aquarid meteor shower. The nearly-full Moon reduced the visibility of this year's shower. It seems unlikely you could have seen these during sunset because of its light. Most of the observations were seen in the south an hour before local sunrise on Saturday and Sunday. It's a good chance you saw some UFOs. For more information visit
HAWTHORNE, NJ -- Tom Sheets and ISUR report that Daniel Dorval saw a strange flying pyramid shaped flying object in June of 1998 at 10:15 PM. The object was thirty feet on a side and fifty feet off the ground. It was all black and moved very slow. There was no sound. Daniel says, "The craft had a mirror like reflecting surface, because I could see my self in the bottom as it passed over." Thanks to Tom Sheets and ISUR.
BUENA VISTA - The National Reporting Center reports that two friends were walking home on April 25, 2001, when they looked up into the sky and noticed a small triangular shaped craft at 3:40 AM. One witness stated, "We both looked to see if it could possibly be wings of a plane, but there was no back end to the plane." He says, "It had a bright 'headlight' leading its course, that I myself have never seen on an airplane." Extruding from the sides were small green lights on each end. The witness explained, "I'm familiar with red lights on a plane, but never in pairs." Even though the craft was flying at low altitude, it was not making the slightest noise. Our town was quiet as could be at 3:40 AM. The craft was hovering, not as much flying. Although it was late, neither one of us were drastically tired, intoxicated, nor had any drugs in our bodies and are truthful behind what we saw. Although there are three airports in a 50-mile radius, this craft was a strange flying triangle with side green lights, and a bright headlight. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director of NUFORC.
ROANOKE -- Andy and Robin Hodge writes, "Last week, you posted our sighting of a pair of flying orbs on Monday, April 23rd in Filer's Files #18 over Roanoke. My email address was included. I thought you would like to know, we just received an email from a fellow in Midlothian, Virginia who said he and his girlfriend also saw a pair of flying orbs on Friday, April 27th. I just thought you would like to know that other is seining the same things. :) Thanks to Robin Hodge
CHADBOURN -- The witness reports, I was in my yard on May 4, 2001, as we live in a rural area. We enjoy looking at the stars my wife and I enjoy the evening stars. A strange craft shaped like Flying Triangle flew over. At first, I thought it might be a military aircraft, but my husband built aircraft, and said that, "It was not one of ours, including area 51 special aircraft."
MYRTLE BEACH -- Well on May 1,-2001, at exactly 10:00 PM, my friend and I were walking on the beach, and we sat down looking towards the Atlantic Ocean, We at first saw five lights all in a line which kind of curved around. The object came half way thought the clouds, then it started backing up slowly to the right. A second object with five more lights became visible while the other one was backing up. The one on the left then disappeared, while the one to the right backed up really fast and vanished. Now these lights to the left were all lined up in the same pattern as the first set we saw. There was three elderly people out there that saw the same thing. We all came to the conclusion that it couldn't have been an airplane, because it was to low to the ocean. It was not fireworks, and they didn't make any sound at all! There were no boats out in the ocean either. Thanks to Barry Taylor
CAPE CANAVERAL -- I just returned from USA where the vast majority do not believe in UFOs. Newspaper disinformation is successful. I saw one strange craft in Central Florida (quick white-red flash, erratic low flight over marsh) but nothing close. More importantly, heard of new abduction case ca. 1990 just inland from Cape Canaveral, involving two very prominent Florida citizens during 4:00 AM turkey shoot. There was a 100 meter craft overhead, 1.5 hours lost without memory, and scars on both people afterward. The full report made it to top US law officials, but there was no public notice. I referred to reputable US investigators, may possibly come out if the individuals are brave. Thanks to Woof, red collie Australia
SEBASTIAN -- On April 25, 2001, I saw the UFO approaching from the northeast. "It was a big cylinder-shaped object with something like a sphere on the front," he reported, "If I were to guess, that is where they control the ship from. I know that what I saw was something really odd and not a UFO but it looked like one to me, for sure." " It was a silvery black cylinder with a sphere on the front. It was way up there, maybe 30,000 feet (9,900 meters) and it moved slow at the beginning but then began to move extremely quick" before departing to the southwest.

GLASGOW -- While driving on Cumberland Parkway the witnesses noticed five white lights about 5 miles from the tollbooth in Barren County on April 21, 2001. The series of lights were shaped like a flying triangle moving slowly towards the southeast at 8:00 PM. The witness stated, "It took about five minutes for the object to intersect my truck at its zenith over the toll both. I paid my toll, went down about 1/2 mile, and pulled off to the shoulder of the road. The craft was very, very low and the far-left light had a single red strobe. My wife got out and we measured this object with our outstretched arms. It was very huge and covered the distance of five human hands at arm's length. It was like looking at a 747 a couple of hundred feet above the tarmac at an airport. I was completely amazed at the lack of engine noise. The witnesses stated, "The object was triangle-shaped and similar to a boomerang, but with well-defined sharp corners." They stood there for two minutes as the craft slowly drifted a couple more degrees southeast. While still directly above them the craft accelerated gaining altitude. It moved rapidly past the horizon in about 15 seconds. By the time we got the camera and snapped a picture it was too far away to get anything of use on the film. The city of Louisville h
WILDWOOD -- On April 26, 2001, the witness was looking out her window, which gives a panoramic view of the East Grayslake. The witness reports, "I saw two rather large glowing objects in the distance at two minutes before midnight. They remained stationary separately moved away after midnight." He stated, "I was awestruck and was waiting for movement, but they continued to hover for about five minutes when suddenly the lower left craft started moving towards the west until I lost sight of it." The object moved very fast, but it was not instantaneous. The other object stayed, so he went to get binoculars from the dinning room. Just as he got back to the window the object started moving. He raised his binoculars, but before he could focus the object started moving west. The objects were observed as rather large lights, but they had an oblong symmetrical shape. The witness stated, "While watching, I also had the sensation that something zoomed past my window just above the roof of my house. There was no noise. He said, "I feel they were UFO's and that means just what it is intended to stand for, "Un-Identified Flying Objects!"
MANHATTAN BEACH -- On April 24, 2001, the witness observed a craft from his roof top deck. He was lying in his hot tub at 9:25 PM and gazing up at the night sky when a flight of six objects flew east at a high rate of speed. The witness lives on the coastline, so the craft were coming in from over the ocean. He did not know their altitude, but they high enough so no details on the craft were visible. All craft appeared to be the same and gave off a faint whitish glow (with a slight cast of yellow), just enough to make them visible. The craft were in perfect separation as they passed overhead. Three of the craft broke off and changed heading to the east. The other three maintained course for a couple seconds then joined up on the first three. Perfect separation was maintained at all times. No sound was heard. The craft disappeared several seconds' later, still headed approximately 070 degrees. At first I thought they were birds, then jets, since I used to fly A-4's fighters in the service. What got me was the sudden brake off movement of the first three, with no roll movement observed when they changed course. They seemed to simply "translate" over, for want of a better word. In addition, the speed seemed very high, and the separation was too perfect. I have seen many flight demonstration teams, but nothing like that. Flying that type of perfect formation would be very difficult for a military jet. In addition, some sort of roll movement is required to change heading that quickly. Thanks to Jeff Rense and Sightings.
I received a letter from Jo Glapan a former French College professor. In gratitude for sending him my files, he sent a copy of his book dealing with UFO propulsion, that I'm having translated from French. He claims that UFOs use CaCO3 (Calcium Carbonate) in their propulsion systems. This is mostly chalk or calcareous earthly substance of opaque white colors, soft, and easily pulverized. I think they have been robbing our planet for thousands of years. That's why we find enormous caves under the seas in the Bahamas or Australia. I hope my gritting ideas will show you that our "formal science is not quite honest-there are too many holes --- or lies. Thanks to Jo Glapan
Editor's Note: Calcium Carbonate is a variety of limestone, calcium and is composed mainly of small seashells but may include bones, teeth, and plant ash. It is used in making lime. Calcium Carbonate is a crystalline compound found mainly in limestone, marble, and chalk. I was discussing Jo's letter with Nancy Talbot who mentioned that most crop circles are sitting on chalk or limestone. Its thought that water filtering through the porous chalk soil attracts the electrical or microwave energy that is associated with crop circles. We speculated that UFOs are often seen near crop circles and there appears to some relationship that Jo Glapan's statements would substantiate. Earthlights or discharges of electrical ball lights are often observed near Crop Circles. These crop circles in turn are often situated near megalith prehistoric stone monuments such as Stonehenge. These sites often include dolmens that are large prehistoric tombs or monuments consisting of large, flat stones laid across large upright stones. These monuments are found all over the world often in circular configurations. These monuments frequently contain electrically charged areas. I personally visited many of these sites in England, Greece, and Turkey. The sites are often tied to beliefs in healing, and fertility. Through the ages people learned these sites helped increase the growth of crops, the successful birth of off spring, prosperity and happiness. A person who sees the grandeur and intricacy of crop circles realizes that there is some powerful force at work. In recent weeks the Earth has been pounded by radiation from solar flares and coronal mass discharges. It is reasonable to assume some of this energy does more than light up the sky with Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). The incredible energy may react inside the chalk and limestone soil creating the Crop Circles. I was wondering if any of our readers are chemists, scientists, or electrical engineers who would care to comment on these findings. The first UFO book I read was by Ivan Sanderson called "Invisible Residents." He contends that large numbers of UFOs are seen entering and leaving the water.
BOGOTÁ -- On April 23, 2001, at 4:15 PM, three UFOs were flying over Bogotá where more than 3,000 people in the city's business district witnessed them. The objects were in the vicinity of Cerro El Cable Hill where they remained motionless for four minutes. This case was covered in detail last week. We wish to thanks to Scott Corrales the Director of the Institute of Hispanic Ufology for the Spanish "Translation (C) 2001. IHU.William Chavez" IHU, and Louise Lowry.
