ROME -- Monsignor Corrado Balducci, an insider close to the Pope has gone on national Italian television five times in recent months to proclaim: Extraterrestrial contact is a real phenomenon. The prelate announced that the Vatican is receiving much information about extraterrestrials and their contacts with humans from its Nuncios (embassies) in various countries, such as Mexico, Chile and Venezuela. Monsignor Balducci said that he is on a Vatican commission looking into extraterrestrial encounters, and how to cope with the emerging general realization of extraterrestrial contact. Balducci provided the Roman Catholic Church's analysis of extraterrestrials, emphasizing that these encounters "are NOT demonic, they are NOT due to psychological impairment, they are NOT a case of entity attachment, but these encounters deserve to be studied carefully." Since Monsignor Balducci is a Vatican expert exorcist, and since the Catholic Church has historically demonized many new phenomena that were poorly understood, his proclaiming the Vatican's non-censure of these encounters is all the more remarkable. Balducci revealed he is closely following this phenomenon. Thanks to World Gathering for Truth
WOODMERE NASSAU COUNTY -- Two licensed professionals observed a rectangular UFO on South Shore of Long Island for 6 to 10 minutes on July 25, 2001, The object was about 250 feet away at treetop level at 11:54 PM. The object had green lights and was over 300 feet in length. The object was first sighted in the west and flew off to the east. The elevation varied but the craft flew straight east.

TRENTON -- The Trentonian News reports that several friends videotaped a mystery light in sky on July 22, the day before Monday's meteor sighting. On Sunday, P. J. Rosso, 11, and his friend, Alex Stemm, 12, were lounging on the trampoline in Lambertville. At about 8:30 PM, they noticed a very bright, slow moving light in the sky. He went inside and got his camcorder, and started filming and as twilight gave way to darkness, the light was even more pronounced in the sky, much brighter than anything else and then -- nothing. "Dude, it disappeared!" Rosso could be heard yelling on the videotape at exactly 9:13 p.m. as the light exploded like a Roman candle. A second later, the light was gone. James Rosso said. "it looked like debris was coming off it. Stemm went on record. "I guess it was an UFO," he said. Both said the image of a bright light disappearing from the sky was similar to that observed in Carteret last Sunday, when nearly 100 people, including police officers and one priest, witnessed a series of bright lights blipping out of view. Thanks to the Trentonian News by Jeff Edelstein July 25, and Gerry Farshores.--
CARTERET -- Peter Davenport writes, "On Sunday, July 15, 2001, the UFO incident may have lasted for 35 to 40 minutes, from 0010 to 0050 hours." The lights may have been visible from as far away as 10 to 40 miles. The lights reportedly were preceded by an immense flash that illuminated the NJ turnpike, and which reportedly occurred simultaneously to the appearance of a triangular shaped craft over Sayreville, NJ. The event was not related to 1) meteor activity, 2) reentering space debris, or 3) any kind of known aircraft. Reports of sightings of strange craft were reported from as far away as Ontario, Canada, and Virginia just minutes before the event. Witnesses reported seeing multiple lights in triangular formations, and one disc-shaped object was reported from the south shore of Long Island, NY. The possibility that the event was caused by flares has not been ruled out, but that possibility raises a whole host of other questions. If they were some type of flare, who was able to launch them undetected, and how did those individuals succeed in getting them all in the air at the same time? How did they ignite them all at once? Why was an official investigation not initiated? Why was some kind of residue not seen falling from the sky? Wouldn't this be a severe fire hazard, if, in fact, people are launching flares over populated areas, airports, refineries, and fuel storage tanks? --Several seemingly identical events have been reported to NUFORC over the last 18 months. They were reported from Rockford on February 11, & 16, March 10, 2000; January 11, 2001; February 10, and March 18, 2001. The objects have been seen over Prescott, AZ, on multiple occasions, as well. Please see entries on the NUFORC website. Thanks to Peter Davenport
Colm Kelleher writes, some of NIDS witnesses are also coming out against flares (EW 6,7,8 and 9 we specifically asked them the question and they came out against flares). Note the ABC commentary that you quoted in Filer's Files"overinterpreted" my statement that "one hypothesis we are following" is military flares. There are, of course, several others. Thanks to Colm Kelleher , NIDS.
SMYRNA -- On July 23, 2001, the witness who is a pilot observed an egg shaped UFO with a white trail moving very fast. The front of the egg was blue and it was moving up Route 13 in Northern Delaware headed towards New Jersey. The fast moving egg shaped UFO was blue in front and the trail was white. The witness stated, "I am a pilot, and it was no plane." The color was a white bluish. The weather was sunny about 86 degrees with blue sky and some clouds. I lost it behind a cloud.
ROSWELL -- Tom Sheets director of GA MUFON reports that investigation of the June 17, 2001, case has indicated it was most likely a meteor. This same evening in Lawrenceville Georgia, Jim Clifford, MUFONGA's Deputy Director for Investigation, and his wife, were outside and reported a large green meteor that passed over. Both Jim and Mrs. Clifford immediately recognized it as a meteor.
LA GRANGE -- Investigator John Thompson writes, "I see UFOs, they see UFOs." That is what an abductee told me once. You dabble with the dark forces and you'll get whatever you think you should get. I have been working on what I now call a "dark saucer" case. It was one of my first close-encounter cases with multiple witnesses. Only now, nearly six years later, have I learned the full demonic aspects of the case. They summoned the dead and got much, much more! One lady was pulled out of bed by an entity that "was not human." The dead appeared. A flying saucer, hovering only 20 feet above a pasture, appeared for a whole neighborhood to watch. After many seances, luminous white Ping-Pong size balls appeared. The flying saucer had portholes and shot pulse-like rays to the ground as families watched. There were reports of dark molten slag like material found following the sighting (unverified still despite two independent reports). Deaths and ill-health following the sightings of balls, UFO and entities. As one witness told me everybody connected with the events has suffered since. Many, true UFOs in my estimation are manifestations. According to some, UFOs can be called up. This is no different from holding seances and trying to talk to the dead. Its all connected and anybody hoping to see a UFO should be careful as they have a good chance of getting more than they bargained for. Thanks to John Thompson former MUFON State Director.
GREEN SWAMP -- On July 13, 2001, two witnesses were driving home on State Road 474 west of Orlando at 9:30 P.M. when they noticed a pin ball like object. While driving Witness #1 and his son (13 year old) saw a, 30 to 40 inch diameter ball in rear window of his automobile. It was reflecting back the details of the rear lights of the car. It was shimmering as they drove and they both had the feeling that they were being watched. He drove faster thinking that "Something was coming on us." As he looked at the rear view mirror the reflection was as a convex chromium surfaced object (pin ball) and he said he had difficulty focusing on it. He thought the object to be 3 to 4 feet behind his car. He said that there was something blocking the night sky as he looked up. When they reached the end of the road they noted that there was an increase of light without any visible shadows. Both witnesses were frightened. When they examined the car upon arriving at home, there was noth! ! ing on the car or back window, no oily residue. Investigator's note: The witnesses wanted this information to be recorded. Witness #1 needed to talk to someone about this event. He has had another sighting three years ago and could not share it with anyone. He just recently became aware of MUFON and their hot line number here in the Tampa Bay area. They do not want to have an investigation done at this time. Thanks to Lorraine Gerber.

PENNSYLVANIA -- The Earth is hit by 400 tons of space debris each day. Thousands of people witnessed a fireball move from east to west over the East Coast. "It was most likely the size of size of a basketball, that created an air blast," said Don Yeomans who oversees NASA's Near Earth Object Program. They put on quite a display by forming a giant fireball trail before exploding. "This sort of thing's not unusual, but it seldom happens over a densely inhabited area." Many residents near Williamsport, PA heard loud explosions at 6:19 PM, while windows were shattered in Salladasburg, PA. DOD satellites with IR sensors detected the impact of a bolide over the Eastern US on July 23, 2001, at 22:19:11 UTC. The object was first detected at an altitude of 82 km at 41.5 North Latitude, 75.6 West Longitude, and tracked down to an altitude of 32 km at 41.3 North, 77.3 West. The impact was simultaneously detected by space based visible wavelength sensors operated by the US Department of Energy. The total radiated energy was approximately 1.27 X 10^12 joules. Some who caught the spectacle imagined it the size of a house or a car. The object emitted a rainbow of colors.
PUERTO RICO -- Luz Guzman reports that on July 23, 2001, a fast moving airborne object probably a fireball was observed at 7:30 PM, and three minutes later the object exploded. JosÈ MuÒoz V·zquez, an archaeologist observed a static white light grew in size as it descended over Cabo Rojo. The tail oscillated considerably, with sparks, an explosion, more sparks and a golden white light. No sounds were heard and no smoke was seen. The fireball was like the tail of a very small comet. The explosion was like golden fireworks. Thanks to Institute of Hispanic Ufology. Special thanks to Lucy Guzman, Translation (C)
TROUT LAKE -- John Novak reports that on July 19, 2001, around 11:00 PM, a large ship flew over the Gilliland Ranch expanding into a brilliant yellow-orange light, then dimmed out as it left the area. This object and large lights were filmed over Mt. Adams. Several other high flyers displayed incredible speeds and turns, some making complete U turns. On July 22nd a guest was taking off Trout Lake airport in his small plane at 12:30 PM, when a UFO flew directly under his plane. The pilot was in radio contact with witnesses and circled to try to see the UFO, but it stayed directly underneath him. The same pilot saw a UFO the previous night over Mt. Adams. It lit up, sent down a beam, then dropped down into the same beam and took off. July 23rd a massive triangular ship came in from the north and was met by a golden colored smaller ship. The film shows three distinct lights in an elongated triangle that moved in unison, keeping their exact distance. Tom Dongo, a well-known UFO investigator, spent two weeks at the ranch and will return to Sedona MUFON with some incredible footage. Thanks to John Novak
REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN -- Bridget reports that four UFOs were sighted on Monday. July 22, 2001, at 12:30 AM. Four objects were seen heading south from the Regina area. They were triangular with an orange haze discharging from the base. They approached traveling approximately 55 K.P.H (30 MPH) prior to stopping. They paused and hovered for several seconds and departed out of sight moving toward the south southwest in less than a second. Thanks to Bridget,
Troy Allen called on July 30, 2001, to report he is monitoring the PopocatpÈtl Volcano video camera site near Mexico City on an almost daily basis. The volcano's observation camera is showing many UFOs often in a triangle formation. Over seventy images of the UFOs have been seen in recent weeks. Three dark UFOs can be seen flying around the area often in a triangle shape. UFO s have had an interest in the volcano since the December 21, 1994, eruption, ending decades of slumber. It is recommended not to approach the volcano to less than 12 km from the crater, although the way between Santiago Xalitzintla and San Pedro Nexapa, including Paso de CortÈs, is open for controlled circulation. RI MUFON's Janet Bucci indicates she saw UFOs at the site on July 3, 2001. Small elliptical colored light that changes color (green, blue, pink, purple, yellow) that is more or less stationary and a larger roundish or flattened whitish light that moves from snapshot to snapshot. There are often at least three UFOs in the photos at: and Thanks to Troy Allen
NORTH GRANADA -- Augusto CermeÒo reporter from the El Nuevo Diario claims that UFOs are flying almost nightly over the El Domingazo neighborhood, according to the accounts provided by at least a dozen local residents. One day we were approached by our friend Sebasti·n Arista Guadamuz, 38, who told us he, his wife and many other locals have seen flying saucers around 7:00 PM almost every night over a distillery. A round object flying over the neighborhood flew to the east. The Aristas' even say that their daughter saw the strange, saucer-shaped craft which crossed the sky, leaving two fiery tails in its wake. Rosa Isabel Trejos NuÒez, 28, saw "something like a fireball with a fiery tail" on Wednesday night. "We also saw it pass in early December." She was calm and relaxed, stating that there is no fear whatsoever as a result of this nocturnal vision. Alvaro Luisa says he and his sister saw "how something round broke off from the object and dropped downward on Wednesday night, on the south side. It flew downward as though about to land. As it went down, the light became brighter, as thought it was looking for a runway." The saucer was green in color, but as it went downward, an immense yellow light turned on." (snip.)

AMAZON RAIN FOREST - Robert writes, "I've only recently learned about you - I'm not informed on the issues of UFO research. I'm just an average guy with a good career, marriage, family and mortgage. But when I read a statement you made about the damage that criticism and ridicule you've been subjected to, I felt a tinge of cowardice for not talking about my own experiences to my friends and family." I don't understand what these objects are but I know they're real and I suspect that many reports are genuine. In 1962, in the Amazon rain forest, we witnessed a most remarkable event at close proximity and I'm still puzzled as to what I was seeing. I've questioned my own grasp of reality over this at times and certainly would not 'go public' with what we saw. I saw something unusual that could be acknowledged, but discussing the facts surrounding this encounter would immediately render me a target of ridicule or brand me an imaginative liar. I'm now 53 and have decided that there is at this time another history being written -- one that will never include us as willing and knowing players. Either people like you and thousands of others are just plain nuts or there now exists the greatest secret of all, one we may never learn. Perhaps we're not supposed to learn for a good reason. Thanks to Robert - (rbcs)
ASCHERSLEBEN -- On July 23, 2001, the witness was working at his computer when his friend told him over Internet to look at the sky. The witness asked his mother to look as well and they both saw a glowing light that was not far away. The witness reports he saw an orange light moving very fast from left to right. By this time, six of us saw these objects. I called my friend and we met late in the night to watch out for more objects and saw more orange lights moving on the sky and then flying away with very high speed.
All around our world there are numerous ancient disc shaped burial barrows, tumuli, or mounds that were built to bury our ancestors. When I flew for the Air Force, I noticed many mounds from the air in many parts of the world. Ohio, West Virginia, Illinois, Florida, the Middle East, and the area around Stonehenge in England have many examples that still exist. Thousands were built in America, and 18,000 were built in Britain 5000 years ago during the Bronze Age. Both in Great Britain and America thousands of flint discs have been found inside the American Indian and British burial mounds.
Recent evidence has also uncovered an ancient alphabet that appears to have been used throughout the ancient world. The burial barrows are constructed to a precise plan, where the periphery of a circle is marked by posts and stakes and is called a palisade. Now, 5000 years later, the barrows still maintain their basic structure unless destroyed by grave robbers or modern construction projects. Within this palisade the dead were buried and a discoid shaped structure was built that looks remarkably like present day UFOs. Not only was a disc shape used in construction but also, each dead body was buried with its own carved disc. Sometimes these small discs came from a hundred miles away and were often carved or chipped from flint stone. Archaeologists claim these disc barrow builders were worshipers of the sun and moon. I asked investigator John Thompson his opinion. He stated, our ancestors saw "things" in the sky and intuitively, but probably incorrectly and as modern man is doing, decided that Gods from space were/are visiting us. They, however and more astutely than us, made the death-heaven connection. Why bury models of UFOs with themselves if they didn't think that these entities "aboard them" were not connected to the so-called spirit-world they were entering? Its obvious they saw linkage between what they observed in the sky and where they believe they were going after dying.
The archeologists maintain that the discs represented sun or moon worship. Drawings and carvings have been made of the sun and moon for ages, the sun is usually represented as a circle with lines or rays and the moon is generally crescent shaped. So we can hypothesize that our ancestors, like Ezekiel who saw a UFO in the sky, probably worshipped or at least prayed these craft would take them to heaven or at least keep their souls alive. Discs are clearly depicted in the 2,500 year old palace of Darius at Perseopolis in Iran. I think we can assume the depiction's of disc craft with triple landing gear are accurate and it makes good sense to assume they were in our skies in ancient times.
These UFO discs have been depicted in 18,000 years old ancient caves in France. The Egyptians believed a metal craft with a metal door carried the souls of the dead who had led a good life. Many of the objects found in the barrows carry out the disc theme and its importance to the people. Clothing and capes were fastened over the upper chest with a disc measuring two inches in diameter. Jewelry, early armor and even the chief structures of worship carried out the disc theme. Stonehenge itself covered by wood would make a nicely shaped disc. Ancient sites such as New Grange in Ireland, believed to be the world's oldest structure is shaped as a disc. It is similar in appearance to the Mound of Kinowth and both have the disc shape with a rim and representations of windows that faithfully imitate the real object. If the ancients intended to imitate either the moon or the sun their structures would look very different. Almost everywhere in the world myths, customs, and religion claim their individual ancestors came from space. I suggest the history or the world is very different if we recognize the importance of disc UFOs.
CYDONIA -- Steve Wingate on his website Anomalous Images, has discovered an interesting grouping of bright rectangular "cells" on the Martian surface. Wingate's formation appears to be either some sort of ruined infrastructure or a result of surface fracturing, perhaps due to faulting. The lines almost appear as drawings and similar to the Nazca lines in Peru. Small blisters or domes that suggest cultural structures are also present along with grid complexes. They're morphologically distinct and unlikely to be caused by the same mechanism that produced the "cells." It's entirely possible that the cells are the result of natural forces. John Fleming's book is, "The War of All Against All." Thanks to Steve Wingate "
Editor's Note: Often strange structures, domes, pyramids, are found on Mars. Individually, most can be explained away, collectively they point to an ancient civilization once existed or has gone underground. Hundreds of meteors probably strike Mars daily just as they do on earth. We are lucky to have our atmosphere to protect us, while Mars is virtually unprotected. Under these conditions life on Mars likely went underground and attempted to reach its closest neighbor. I have been looking both at images of Mars and on Earth for evidence of this hypothesis. Throughout, the Earth and Mars there are strange barrows, burial grounds, or monuments to the dead. Our lives are rather short and most wish to be remembered or to live on. Cemeteries and burial grounds give us a clue to the past.
