- MISSING PERSONS -- Nationwide 876,000 Americans were
reported missing last year. Most were runaway teenagers. However, the
shocking truth is that thousands are never found either alive or dead and
remain missing. Perhaps someone will start looking and asking questions
about this large number of missing persons? These include my wife's cousin
Bob, who went out running in 1969 and has never been found despite a search
by thousands. I have noticed that whenever there is a wave of UFO sightings
in a particular area, there are also many missing persons reported in the
same area. I wonder if there could be a connection?
- NEW JERSEY FLYING CHEVRON UFO
- WAYNE -- The witness was driving on June 2, 2001, at
6:00 PM, with his daughter when she noticed a black Flying Chevron in the
sky. It had no lights and made no noise. It had a "V" shape
and was flat on the top and bottom. It was probably less than 1000 feet
high up. We just watched for about eight minutes, when it started to rise.
It seemed like it was suspended there and slowly rotated once and then
stopped. It to turn one side towards the sky and ascend rather fast.
I think it looked rod shaped because of the position it was in as it rose.
I watched it until it disappeared into the clouds. It looked like a pencil
line in the clouds. It had no cockpit or front end like a plane has.
I can't believe the good daylight view we had of it. It maneuvered itself
so easily as if had no trouble with gravity. It's hard to explain. Thanks

- NEW YORK CHERRY UFO SEEN FROM PLANE
- LONG ISLAND -- This UFO sighting took place from a plane
an hour after the Wayne New Jersey sighting and only twenty miles apart.
A couple and their two children (girl 5, boy 1) and two friends were bound
for Martha's Vineyard on an eight seat private jet on June 2, 2001. The
witness states, "We took off from Teterboro Airport in NJ at 6:45
PM in thick cloud cover. When the aircraft came up out of the clouds about
seven minutes after take off we broke out into bright sunlight."
My friend who was seated in front of me, by the right wing of the aircraft
called out "what the *$#@ is that?"
- Immediately I looked out of my window at 7:00 PM. "Behind
us on the right side of the plane and some distance above, perhaps 1000
to 3000 feet was this large rusty red boomerang shaped object silhouetted
against the bright blue sky." We were now above storm and had a good
view. The craft had no windows or lights visible and was about the size
of a large 747 jet aircraft. It hovered in ! place for several seconds
before we lost sight of it. My friend, who had first sighted it, for a
greater duration said it looked as if it had bulbous shapes, which joined
to form the boomerang or Flying Chevron. We both agreed, however on the
size and color of the object. My 5-year-old daughter also caught a glimpse
of the object.
- Due to the storm below us we thought it could have been
some weather-monitoring balloon. By this time in the flight we were probably
quite near J.F.K and LaGuardia airport. The total flight was 35 minutes.
The UFO resembled nothing I have ever seen. Especially the red cherry
color struck us as odd. We meant to ask the pilot, but in all the excitement
we forgot. Thanks to NUFORC
- BROOKLYN -- Shemlan reports two UFOs were flying over
Northwest Brooklyn towards the northeast at 6:30 PM, June 25, 2001. The
objects were flying with large distance in between, 20 to 30+ seconds in
between. The speed was equal to a commercial aircraft. The objects appeared
to be close, but no wings or shapes were discernible. They were sphere-like
objects with a whitish contrail flying only a few hundred feet over my
home. It was only 200 to 400 feet away! These craft were inline with
the UFOs path, which were seen only a day or two later. Thanks to Shemlan
- PENNSYLVANIA SMALLER WHITE OBJECT TRAILS LARGER ONE
- READING -- While at the Reading W.W.II reenactment, we
were watching, with binoculars, several aircraft doing flybys on June 10,
2001. As we looked to the SW, I spotted what looked at first like a white
balloon being carried upwards very rapidly at 4:25 PM. The cloud deck was
at about 8,000 feet and the object went above them to about 10,000 feet
and then hovered as if caught in an air pocket. Several other people thought
it looked like a grocery type white bag, but there was a smaller piece
of a white object that we saw traveling along with the larger "bag".
It looked unattached. After about 15 minutes of being "motionless"
the objects started to climb higher until they were out of site to the
SW. About 25 people around us saw and watched the objects climb. I've been
to many airshows over the years and never saw anything like this before
- it definitely was not a balloon. I was monitoring the radio frequencies
of the airport, but nothing was mentioned about the object.
- VIRGINIA LAWYER OR DOCTOR NEEDED
- ROANOKE -- We need your help! A fellow who has an extremely
high IQ and is a graduate from California Institute of Technology and is
a PhD of physics is in trouble related to his activity in the UFO field.
He called and said he was now locked inside a Virginia Sanitarium here
because of his interest in UFOs and a UFO abduction experience on June
8, 2001 at 10:00 PM in a park in Roanoke. He said he was walking in the
park when he decided to ask and prayed for a UFO to appear. He said soon
a giant triangle came over him and all the lights in the park went off.
He blacked out. Later he found himself on his way home thinking no time
had passed. When he reached the house he realized that several hours had
passed. He had an experience of missing time. He told friends at work
and family and ended up being committed.
- Editor's Note: If any lawyer or Medical Doctor is willing
to help please e-mail me at Majorstar@aol.com. I'm told that many people
who claim to have a UFO encounter have been put into mental homes. I think
it is time to fight for the rights of people who experience UFO encounters.
- NORTH CAROLINA FLYING TRIANGLE
- CHADBOURN -- June 5, 2001, 4:09 AM I was in my yard as
we live in a rural area, and we enjoy looking at the stars. My wife and
I enjoy the evening stars. We thought it was a military aircraft, but
my husband built aircraft, and said that is not one of ours, including
those at Area 51. The total sighting lasted six minutes.
- OHIO UFO LANDING
- WEST MANCHESTER - Ginny Rose called to say during a limited
phone call on July 2, 2001, the person observing a UFO landing served in
the Marine Corps. He is a former Marine security police with a Top Secret
clearance where he guarded Nuclear Submarines. He recently started working
at the same place where I have been employed. Last night at work the subject
of this came up and he told what he had seen happen. He said about 12:30
AM at night he saw a UFO land in West Manchester over Harter's Woods about
two weeks ago. He said he has seen them flying around here in West Manchester
before this happened, especially over that wooded area. I told him I have
seen them land and take off from the ground, too. They also shoot objects
out of them that fly away on their own power. They also communicated to
me telepathically. The phone call was interrupted by strange sounds and
suddenly terminated. Ohio MUFON is investigating. Thanks to Virginia Rose
- MICHIGAN SILVER TEARDROP UFO
- THREE RIVERS -- On Thursday, July 5, 2001, at 6:10 PM
on the way home from work, about a mile from my house, I spotted a silver
teardrop shaped object in the northwest sky. The sky was a nice and blue
that day, and the object was only visible for a moment and then disappeared.

- MINNESOTA ORANGE BALLS OF LIGHT
- MUFON State Director William McNeff reports they are
investigating strange orange balls of light seen on April 30 and May 4,
2001, at around 11:30 PM. The weather was clear. No ceiling, visibility
10+ miles and very little wind, and there were no thunderstorms or any
storms during that day. This definitely was not balling lighting. I've
been meaning to fly around that area during the day to see if there is
a good explanation for this. It is amazing to see the same descriptions
of color. I'll let you know if I find anything on the flight: Orange Ball
of Light seen near Mille Lacs Lake about April 30, 2001. A friend of mine
had a close encounter, coming within perhaps 100 feet, with a UFO in southern
Minnesota in 1979. He writes,
- "Hi Bill -- "I had another interesting event
flying [a light plane] from Thief River Falls to Minneapolis about two
months ago. It was about 11:30 at night. I was at 7500 feet MEL and there
was a bright orange object about my 2:00 position near Mille Lacs Lake.
It was higher than the ground because it was lighting the area below the
light. It was a larger and brighter light than any of the surrounding
lights -- but it was still quite a bit lower than I was. I was watching
it for a few minutes (it was stationary) and then the controller called
and I had to change frequencies and next thing I knew the light was gone.
A while later I was near the lake and now at my 3 o'clock position was
the light again. I was about ready to call the controller and ask if they
had any traffic lower and at my 3:00 and about then the light went out."
Thanks to William McNeff firstname.lastname@example.org
- Editor's Note: The orange plasma glow around the craft
are frequently reported. White lights at a distance will often appear
yellow or orange.
- OKLAHOMA FLYING TRIANGLE
- I just had another incredible sighting at 10:14 PM.
Tonight is June 21, 2001, and I was taking a bag of trash out to the cans
and before I walked outside, I had an intuition to take my camera with
me. Sure enough about five seconds after coming out of my house, I saw
a Triangular craft coming from the east at about 10,000 feet with three
big white lights on each end and small red lights on the bottom, maybe
the same craft Linda and I saw on May 7, 2001. Even more amazing was the
fact that I took four shots of this craft with a Sony 10x Digital camera
and I had the craft centered in the view finder and not one of them turned
out. It was pretty incredible. Thanks to Bill Hamilton.
- TEXAS UFO LANDINGS REPORTED
- FORT HOOD -- John W. writes that in 1985, not long after
the initial publicity about the Cash-Landrum investigated by MUFON's John
Shuessler, I received information on Ft. Hood. Two women her granddaughter
driving in southeast Texas at night on December 29, 1980, were over flown
at low altitude by a bright, slow-moving UFO accompanied by many military
black helicopters. They subsequently suffered UFO burns and severe radiation
sickness symptoms for which they sued the US Government. I received information
from a correspondent suggesting that the Fort Hood Military Reservation,
fairly close by in central Texas, contained a secret underground base housing
captured and/or US-made UFOs being test-flown from there. There are stories
that indicate a US Air Force Base and a nuclear weapons facility were there.
Because of the Cash-Lundrum case, I was very interested in the information
I received as it suggested a likely secret base for the UFO involved in
- The late Leonard Springfield's reports on UFO crash/retrievals
and back-engineering also suggested it. To explore this possibility further,
I wrote to the editors of local newspapers circulating in the towns nearest
Fort Hood, namely Gatesville, Killeen, Lampasas, Belton, and Temple, Texas,
asking if they had any information. They very kindly cooperated, apparently
publishing my letters and address, and I soon received a number of letters
from people who said they formerly worked with captured or US-made UFOs
in a secret underground part of Ft. Hood, or were family of such former
workers, or had seen UFOs taking off from or landing in a restricted part
of Ft. Hood. They took photographs just outside the restricted area, of
a hillside in the restricted area, which was supposed to have large concealed
doors in it leading to an underground hangar. One former worker there,
with a high security clearance, claimed to be dying of cancer as the result
of having worked with the UFOs stored! and test-flown there. Thanks to
- TEXAS FLYING SUBMARINE WHISTLES OVER TREETOPS
- ALVIN -- Three teenage witnesses were outside when they
heard a loud whistle and humming sound on June 6, 2001. They looked up
and saw a craft that resembled a "flying submarine" with three
lights on it (red in front, then green, then blue all in a line on the
right side). It appeared right over their heads at 8:42 PM just above
the tree line by the house. The UFO followed the driveway down to the
next tree line, whereupon it suddenly shot off upwards and to the right
and quickly disappeared towards the almost full moon in the northeast sky.
The object was charcoal gray color in the dark night sky. The three lights
on the object were blinking rapidly like a strobe. All of the witnesses
were frightened by the experience. They include a recent high school graduate
(18) and two females (17 and 15). They immediately notified me (stepfather
to one of the witnesses). There is a slight possibility of about 20 minutes
of missing time but not all of them can agree on this.
- CALIFORNIA HOVERING CRAFT
- WOODLAND HILLS - Tom writes that on June 29, 2001, at
approximately 8:30 PM. my friend and I were just leaving my house to go
to work when he pointed to distant object in the sky. It was close to
dusk and the object was backlit by the sunset and looked to be due north
of us on the opposite side of the San Fernando Valley. The craft was hovering
over the Santa Susana Pass about three miles away and about 2000 feet altitude.
This is a test site for Rockwell International, now a subsidiary of Boeing.
We saw a dark, diamond-shaped silhouette about size of a mini-van. The
weather was clear and this was not an atmospheric anomaly. What immediately
struck me about the object was its apparent solidity and unnatural motionlessness.
Both my friend and I have worked around aircraft. It produced no exhaust
plume nor any other atmospheric disturbance and we could not hear any noise
produced by any means of propulsion.
- We observed the object for a total of about 15 minutes,
during which it did not move. However, after five minutes we noticed a
slight bobbing, which was a few feet of vertical movement. It was sudden
and unnatural, as if the object were about to fall but was able to catch
itself and regain altitude. My girlfriend and her friend also saw the
object. Neither of them knew what to make of it either so we drove towards
- When we got about a mile away. we saw three helicopters
approach and circle the object at a distance of a few hundred feet. They
Helicopters were flying with navigation lights and appeared larger than
the object, but night was falling fast and the object did not have any
lights. We lost sight of the object behind some trees and after the area
came back up in our line of sight, the helicopters were circling alone.
I parked the car over a a mile away from the Santa Susana Pass and we
watched the helicopters leave.
- My mother saw a similar dark, diamond-shaped object without
lights twice during the last two weeks around dusk. She was over the 5
and 118 Freeway Interchange and she phoned several coworkers who were heading
for work who also saw it. My father claims no Boeing aircraft were flying
during these periods. What puzzles me is what purpose it would serve flying
over the San Fernando Valley, riling up helicopters for an intercept?

- WASHINGTON ORANGE OBJECT WITH OTHER FASTER OBJECTS BREAKING
- PUYALLUP -- Two witnesses, a 15 year old boy and his
mother age 40 were coming home from the store at 10:30 PM on June 11, 2001.
The teenager was watching something out the back window that he said, was
not a plane. He takes flight lessons and likes to watch the skies. Both
witnesses saw an Orange colored round object above them that was moving
slowly southwest. It had some type of an extension that seemed to circle
the whole object continuously as it moved. Then it stopped, and as it started
again it headed more in a western direction. Then a bright orange object
shot off of it very fast and went south and was gone. As it moved another
bright but very small object shot off and went in the same direction as
the main object. This happened several more times and they all disappeared.
My son and I were just awestruck. A second witness also reported seeing
the same object ten minutes earlier. On my way home going west on 112
something caught my eye to the south. It had a ! red light that moved
right to left. I only saw the light on one side, but I got a glimpse of
the rest the object and it was like an olive. It was dark cloudy and rainy
and I lost sight of it quickly. Thanks to Peter Davevenport and NUFORC.
- OREGON FIREWORKS AND UFO
- PORTLAND -- Robert White writes, "I am here in Oregon,
and just watched the fort Vancouver fireworks on TV and possibly saw a
UFO fly through. Can you ask if anyone in the Portland area recorded the
fireworks? If they did, the "craft" I am speaking of flew from
left to right on the screen at approximately 10:33 PM or about 7 minutes
prior to the start of the grand finale. This craft stood out because it
was too bright to be a plane and didn't strobe like other planes. It was
flying too straight to be a stray fireworks. Thanks to Robert White Raiderob@hotmail.com
- UNITED KINGDOM UFO WAVE
- LONDON -- Russel Callaghan writes that UFO Magazine has
been presented with some amazing daylight UFO footage recorded over Lewisham,
London on July 1st 2001. Whatever Christopher filmed brings back some of
the dozens of reports we have seen describing 'Boomerang or Triangular'
UFOs. You can watch the video at www.ufomag.co.uk.
- WEST WILTSHIRE -- An UFO was spotted June 13, 2001, by
two sets of witnesses over Semington and Trowbridge between 10:20 and 11:10
PM. Eyewitness Roger White saw a bright light at 11:10 PM over Semington.
"It seemed to be moving slowly," he said. "At first I thought
it was a planet but it was too bright." A strange craft was reported
50 minutes later at around by four people in Trowbridge. Witness Nichola
Winney said the object featured three lights in a triangle formation. She
said it blocked out the stars as it passed overhead, making a soft droning
sound as it moved. A UFO for sure, then.
- DERBYSHIRE DALES -- The Matlock Mercury News of July
5, 2001, reports, L. Alison (29) of Lant Lane says "I was watching
Big Brother and nothing usually drags me away from that!" she joked.
Software sales executive Alison watched the UFO for around 30 seconds at
10:35 PM. She described it as disk-shaped and having four green flashing
lights, arranged in a square. "I'm not a freak!" she insisted.
"I'm not mad and I've never ever seen anything like this before.
"It was huge and must have been 1,000 feet high. It was nothing like
an airplane or star. Someone else must have seen it." The craft made
no movement. Alison stepped outside to call her boyfriend from their garage
so he could share in the strange close encounter. L. Alison's sighting
is now the 27th in the Derbyshire Dales since last September. The region
is becoming widely known as a UFO hotspot among enthusiasts and features
extensively on websites all over the world. Fox TV in America is filming
a documentary a! bout the famous Bonsall sighting in October and Nottingham's
Four Sheets Films is shooting another about the wider picture.
- BULGARIA CIRCULAR CRAFT
- SOFIA -- On June 23, 2001, at about 10:00 PM a reporter
was called by her next-door neighbor from her balcony of the 8-storey apartment
building where they live. She pointed at the sky where the reporter saw
an unusual looking object. It was fairly big, a tilted circular plane
made of lights. It was static and didn't move apart from a few brighter
lights revolving around the periphery clockwise. The movement of the lights
was at a constant speed of a full revolution per minute. It didn't appear
solid, on the contrary -- it looked as if it was made of air and clouds
and lights. But it stayed static and the motion was constant -- for about
an hour. It was aerial and beautiful. The sky was clear, covered with
stars, no clouds were visible. The reporter had to go inside a few minutes
and when she returned, it was gone. Thanks to Dan firstname.lastname@example.org,
- NEW YORK FOX NEWS VIDEO
- On July 2, 2001, and several succeeding days Fox News
at various locations around the US has been showing a video of a helicopter
flying over Manhattan with a passenger shooting a video of a UFO. The Sci-fi
Channel sought submissions from viewers in their search for UFO videos
last year. They received an excellent video of the UFO, although the pilot
does not appear to see the object. The UFO comes from behind a building
and makes a high speed run at the helicopter and climbs up into the atmosphere.
MUFON's video expert Jeff Sainio analyzed the film and feels it is unlikely
a hoax. My friends who have an advanced studio have also attempted to
make similar videos for advertising purposes. They have been unable to
duplicate the scene at considerable expense and professional expertise.
For those who claim this film is a hoax, I ask them to provide a similar
hoaxed video. I assure you it is tougher than you might think to obtain
realistic footage. I will happily put any o! n my web site and give the

- BUCHAREST -- A June 28, 2001, message to Jim Hickman
reports, a few minutes after 4:00 AM, the night shift personnel of a business
were alarmed by the sudden interruption of their electric lighting on going
to see whether there might be some defect with the current intake, they
observed a powerful light over the city. They climbed a nearby hill and
were able to see an oval object of about 11 meters in diameter, which was
emitting a cold white light like a sodium lamp. Thanks to Hickman Report

- RUSSIA ALLEGED UFO DOGFIGHT OVER RUSSIAN AIRBASE!
- SEROV -- The Weekly World News claims that, hundreds
of eyewitnesses reportedly watched 36 UFOs wage a spectacular dogfight
above a Russian air base! The aerial battlle that lasted for about ten
minutes lit up the sky with laser like weapons. Many craft apparently
were hit and damaged. The dogfight allegedly occured on May 11, at 2:05
AM and was witnessed by a Polish news reporter Igor Wroclawski. The craft
were described as 90 feet in diameter and the weapons fire was like thunder.
One fleet of UFOs withdrew while the second group followed. Thanks to
