NARRAGANSETT-- The witness reports that on July 4, 2001, we were setting off a few fireworks on a cliff by the ocean shore at dusk. We observed a Roman candle set off behind us and turned to watch its smoke trail and saw a trapezoid-shaped, black object. It was moving slowly and silently at an altitude of no more than 2,000 feet at 9:00 PM. I called out to my two sons, a friend, and my nephew who all watched with me as the "object" continued to move east out over the ocean in between the haze and dark clouds at a speed of no more than 50 or 60 mph. The object then accelerated to about 100-150 mph and then seemed to vanish within the clouds. We were all deeply awed, and all of us reported seeing the exact same shape, height, and speed of this object--we all dismissed it as too large to be a "stealth fighter or bomber," or even a large dirigible. We estimate it to be about 80 or 90 feet tall and about 600 feet the length of two football fields. Thanks to Peter Davenport N! UFORC
OLD BRIDGE -- Sam Sherman the President of Independent International Pictures writes, I have had several impressive UFO sightings over the years and so am always watchful of unusual phenomena in the skies. On the morning of July 2, 2001, I was driving north on route 9 from Old Bridge, New Jersey and was passing through Sayreville as I spotted what looked like the bright metal edge of a plane in the sky. Only this object was flying across the sky in front of me at least five or six times the speed of the average plane in the sky. The object passed over the road in front of me, at what looked like a sixty-degree angle to the ground from my perspective in my car. The object headed from east. I thought to myself: "that plane is really flying fast." Moments later what looked like the same object headed from east to west in front of me at about the same speed. I could only see a bright metal edge, no wings, or anything else raised from its surface. Seeing it closer and flyin! g back in the opposite direction so fast made me wonder what it might be. Thanks to Sam Sherman
DOYLESTOWN -- Bill Hamilton writes Mel Gibson is playing a farmer in M. Night Shyamalan's movie "Signs," which will be filmed outside Philadelphia starting in September. After a lengthy search of area farmland, producers have decided to film the movie at Doylestown's Delaware Valley College, a private four-year school known for its agricultural program. "Everyone knows he's coming and all the girls are waiting," said Mitzi Weikel, a student working on campus this summer. The college has signed an agreement to rent 100 acres of its cornfields through the end of the year. Filming is expected to start in September. Gibson plays a farmer who discovers large circles and other patterns in his fields.
COUNTRYSIDE -- An egg shaped object with a bluish green color was seen falling from the sky straight down on July 1, 2001. At first it was small but increased in size as it came closer to the ground and veered northwest for 2-4 seconds at 10:44 PM. It disappeared in low clouds. The object was larger than a duel prop airplane and it had a lot of mass and color. There were no flashing lights on it and it was flying too slowly to be a meteoroid. It had a neon blue trail and as it came to the ground it leveled out to 35 degree angle heading for the ground and disappeared about 400 feet above the ground. It was large enough to make a loud crashing noise but there was no sound at all.
NORMAL -- The witness reports, my friend and I both saw something as we were walking across the street on July 1, 2001, at 10:30 PM. We saw an extremely bright greenish blue light appear directly in front of us in the middle of the sky and shot rapidly down and disappeared as quickly as it had originally appeared. There was a bright red trail behind the object and it made no noise. We realize that today's date is close to the 4th but we know that what we saw was not a firework of any kind. We saw something strange that but we both know was NOT a firecracker, airplane, shooting star, or comet. We are not crazy, we are just convinced we have seen something that warrants some sort of an explanation. NUFORC spoke to the witness and found him to be a quite credible and serious-minded.

HARTSVILLE -- Ron Hannifin writes that on July 6, 2001, at about 10:45 AM, radio station WJKM and CMR (Country Music Radio), was knocked off the air by a very powerful strange energy blast! There was a crystal clear blue sky, no clouds, nor lightning! All the radio station's lines were knocked out, several power transformers were blown, ISDN and all phone lines in the area were knocked out! The radio station transmitter was damaged; all computers and electronic equipment were damaged. In the back of the radio station were DEAD FRIED BIRDS! Their wings, tails, and feet severely burned. Many of the birds were still alive but badly burned. Some kind of large electrical or plasma seems to have struck the area. Some blame an offline nearby nuclear plant. Witnesses claim to have seen a triangular shaped craft overhead. Silent black helicopters at all hours of the night and military C-130's have been observed heading in as if to land or leaving the area nose up like they ha! ve just taken off. Some people speculate the HAARP or government E/M-P facilities may be responsible. Thanks to Ron Hannivig
My name is David and I am a student at Iowa State University in Ames Iowa. On July 9, 2001, about 12:30 AM, I witnessed something from my 3rd floor balcony almost directly overhead. I saw a whitish/orangish light (orb) moving southeast. The intensity of the light was about that of a medium, to medium-bright, star. The light with the orange hue was constant and not blinking or pulsing. It was very high and appeared to be moving at a very high rate of speed, considering its altitude. At first, I thought this light was a very bright satellite. There are two streetlights on the street below my apartment, which light up the area to such an extent that I normally cannot view satellites from my balcony. Last night, it was darker than usual and I could see more stars than usual. With that said, the following explains why I still do not think this was a satellite.
I was following the path of the orange orb for about 10 seconds, during which time it was traveling from the NW to the SE. The first strange thing I noticed is that it didn't appear as though the orb traveled in a perfectly straight line. It seemed to have a slight curve. I was only using the surrounding stars as a reference, so I cannot say that it had a curve with a high degree of certainty. The second thing I noticed really made me question his object. After 10 seconds, and only cutting through about 5-10 degrees of the sky, the object got very small and disappeared. From the time it started shrinking, to the time it vanished, was one-second. I've never seen a satellite disappear that quickly. This was not a meteor since it had no tail and wasn't "shooting" downward and it didn't look like it was burning up. It also lasted at least 10 seconds (maybe 15) which is longer than any "shooting stars" I've witnessed. It was also traveling slower than any shooting stars. ! It was just a strange orange ball moving at a high constant speed that simply disappeared. I'm not sure what I saw, I just know I've never seen anything like it before. Thanks to Dave
INDEPENDENCE -- On July 4, 2001, it was still very light - I was in my back yard and heard a very loud, low "jet aircraft" sound. I was startled as it seemed very low, very close and very loud. The sound "appeared" immediately before the sighting at 7:30 PM. I looked up and saw it coming into my view over the treetops; it passed over my head and I watched it fly out of sight. It never hovered and it was not moving at an abnormally fast speed and the movement was very smooth. For as loud and large as it was, it didn't seem to be going very fast. The sighting took about 15 sec. It was in the shape of a triangle - a "brushed aluminum" looking material - with 2 flashing red lights on the tip of the "wings". It was moving forward. It had a wide "accordion" design on the underside. It was a very "strange" experience and I "knew" immediately that I had just seen something very unusual. I do believe I saw something that is NOT human.
SACRAMENTO -- ISUR reports that on Friday, July 6, 2001, at about 6:00 PM, the witness stepped outside of her home in Carmichael and noticed a round object hovering over the treetops to the east. The witness indicated that the object was bright and shiny, but appeared to be rotating as it changed from shiny to an almost black color. She observed it for at least 5+ minutes and added that there appeared to be no lights or other structure, just a round object. There was a haze or some sort of aura around it, and no sound was detected. She estimated it may have been a few hundred feet above the treetops, perhaps a mile away, and about the size of an aspirin held at arm's length. The object seemed to fade into the clouds after about 5+ minutes of observation. After this event, the witness contacted the local news station and was advised that no other reports had been received. This witness provided ISUR with a brief but concise and well written report, she was willing to coo! perate in a more in-depth investigation with MUFON of California. Although she had been a 'skeptic,' but knew what she saw! Thanks to Tom Sheets, ISUR Board, State Director-MUFONGA
MORGAN'S POINT -- SASSY1 reports that the witness business professional, Dirk Vander Ploeg was taking his usual early morning walk along the shores on Lake Erie, when eyes were drawn to two bright objects in the southeast skies. One brighter than the other was conducting maneuvers that could not have been a terrestrial aircraft. Vander Ploeg immediately returned to his residence, found his camcorder, and returned to the shoreline, where the two unknown objects were videotaped maneuvering for an hour. The objects appear on video to be a planetary alignment, until they start moving in two opposite directions -- then returning back to their original locations over the Lake. At approximately 11:00 a.m., Rob McConnell, the host of THE 'X' ZONE RADIO SHOW, and a personal friend of Vander Ploeg arrived and was shown the video tape. After viewing the footage, McConnell placed several calls to colleagues in Canada and the United States to see if there was any explanation for the strange maneuvers or if in fact, the objects were terrestrial. The following contact information can be used for Dirk Vander Ploeg and Rob McConnell. Thanks to SASSY1.
YEOVIL -- UFO Magazine reports two gentlemen observed and photographed nine UFOs which arrived one by one, before commencing to merge with one another and perform some dazzling acrobatics on June 28, 2001. These were bright, orange-coloured objects strikingly similar to those seen, photographed and videotaped over Fleetwood, Lancashire.
YORK -- BBC Radio York residents reported UFO activity of large flying triangles between June 15 and July 15. Accounts had also appeared in the local press. Journalists have been told there were no RAF or joint-NATO exercises that could be responsible for the sighting reports, so everyone is asking the same question: what could they possibly be? An interesting video tape of a red flying wing, anomalous object filmed over London on July 1, 2001, by Christopher Martin can be observed at the UFO Magazine website. Thanks to Graham W. Birdsall Editor of UFO Magazine [UK]
Editor's Note: I encourage that videos and photos should be placed on web sites and in magazines. I have found that they are often the same craft described by other witnesses at various locations through out the world. NATO began giving various Soviet aircraft specific designations. Large bomber aircraft had designations such as Bison or Bear. Fighters use various designations beginning with F such as Flogger and Firebar, etc. I suggest UFO organizations come up with similar designations. D for disc, T for triangles etc. I suggest that many UFOs visit various countries around the world. A better designation of types is needed. The red flying wing or V shaped craft might be called Von Rictofen. This same craft was apparently seen over both New Jersey and New York City on June 2, 2001
MOSCOW -- The [alien] ones have landed in a field five kilometers from the city, leaving one of their unmistakable signs, that is, the 'crop circles'. There is no doubt, according to UFO researcher Vieceslav Paranuk, a teacher of mathematics at the University of Majkop in the Caucasus. The Russian Ministry of Civil Protection has already established a commission to study the UFO phenomenon. "A man would not be able to make such circles without someone noticing, and for me it is verification of the Aliens," said Paranuk in the daily newspaper, Izviestia. Investigators found a large circle some 19 meters in diameter that was encircled by four others, each about five meters in diameter, To the center of the larger circle, there was a 10 cm wide hole 40 cm deep.
This is the second time in four years crop circles have manifested in the zone and perhaps they have been left by a spaceship, whose weight would have traced the larger circle while the four lateral ones would have been the result of landing gear mechanism of the craft. The news of the return of the aliens has received great prominence. Russian television has shown the images of the ears of corn skewed in a clockwise direction, but left nearly intact. The manifestation of crop circles is an inexplicable phenomenon, without anyone ever having found one convincing explanation, in many countries of the world. The earliest crop circles or circular marks where recorded in English fields in 1647, and were thought to be the work of the devil. Later circles in the 1970s were very simple, but gradually evolved in the 1990s into complex pictograms composed of lines, angles and spirals.

The witness reports, "We were sitting outside having a game in the back yard on July, 2, 2001, we all quickly glanced up as something reflected into our eyes almost stopping our vision for a bit." There was a triangular (flat equilateral triangle) craft moving across the sky at 11:30 PM. We live next to an airfield but we didn't know what to make of it. Therefore, we carried on playing our game. Fourteen minutes later it came back again, but going the other way. It would occasionally float across and then vanish again, but this time it was closer.
We rung the airfield and they said that there was only something reflecting and they couldn't make out what it was. We started to get very nervous and scared so we went inside and observed outside while watching TV. Nothing happened until about 17 minutes later when the TV went off, the phone started ringing and the fax came through with all types of weird stuff. I have the fax to prove it. Our cell phones went dead and we saw it again but this time it was hovering right over our house, it slowly picked up speed flew over some trees and we never saw it again. We live in the country so there are a few valleys it could have gone down and hidden. We saw a group of jets fly over the valley just as the craft vanished.
