PROVIDENCE - Peter Davenport played me the tape of a pilot's UFO encounter. I felt the pilot's testimony was forth right and concerned. The pilot saw an egg shaped object pass in close proximity to his aircraft on June 22, 2000, about at 8:30 PM, while flying on an IFR flight plan at 8000 feet msl. He states, "Due to thunderstorms in the interior of Massachusetts, I was unable to fly northbound to my destination, and I was tracking the RI/CT coastline to the west trying to get around the weather ." The Sun had already set below the horizon, but the western sky was still very bright orange and ground detail was still easily identifiable. At first, I saw what I thought was a bird directly in my flight path, it appeared to be writhing in effort to avoid my plane (this is not an uncommon sight). Very quickly, I determined that the bird (object) was not on a collision course, but it would pass very close to my position. As it drew closer I could see that it was not a bird, but rather an egg shaped object standing on end.
The top and bottom of the "egg" was not rounded but spiked with three points each. Against the bright sky it was just a black silhouette and possessed no lights. It appeared to be moving in an eastbound direction and passed very close to and above he right wing of my aircraft. The first officer was looking for a fix on a navigational chart and did not observe the object. However, I immediately contacted ATC and inquired about any radar targets on his equipment in my vicinity. The initial response was no, but shortly thereafter he reported a primary target (no transponder or verifiable altitude info) behind me in trail about a mile. ATC then informed me that object appeared to be stationary and then began to drift slowly to the east. I had no further contact with the object. Shortly, before I was handed off to another co FAA ATC voice or radar controller. "On a separate frequency, I heard the object called as stationary traffic to an airliner."
((NUFORC Note: We have talked to the witness on several occasions, and we find him to be exceptionally credible. In addition, we have received from the FAA Boston Center both audio and radar tapes for the time period indicated. The Quality Assurance Office at Boston Center, which processed NUFORC's FOIA request indicates that the audio tape confirms that a pilot reported an anomalous object to the Center handling his flight. We will post more information, once the tapes are processed. Thanks to Peter Davenport
HILLSBOROUGH -- On August 8, 2000, I saw a round metallic object that had indentations. It was moving slowly across the sky at 5:30 PM. The object appeared to move under its own power. It was moving too fast and traveling in to deliberate fashion to have been a balloon. It was much shinier than a Mylar balloon, and also appeared much larger. There were both children and adults present at the sighting. We watched the object until it was obscured by the trees. NEWARK AIRPORT -- NUFORC reports that on August 17, 2000, at 10:24 AM two witnesses observed a fast moving silver ball shaped UFO. The witness reports, "I work for a moving company and was driving on the New Jersey Turnpike with a co-worker. As we passed Newark Airport, we watched the planes land and take off. I saw the sun glint off a plane that was traveling north toward us. It glinted again so I looked closer. It was round in front, but it didn't look right. As we got closer I asked myself, 'What the !@$%#! is that? It was just a big round silver ball about two miles away. It just kept traveling toward us and passed us on the left moving faster than any plane we have ever seen going to Newark Airport. It was silver and round about the size of a helicopter but without windows or lights, nothing on it at all. It moved in a perfect straight line as it traveled - no wobble- no up or down no side to side or spinning motions. It just went straight. There was no noise no smoke nothing. To us it looked to be made of a solid metal and glistened bright in the sun. We were listening to CBS 101.1 FM a strong station, but started picking up static. The object turned to go north following the Turnpike in a straight line at 2000 feet high. The sky was very clear. The UFO moved north six miles toward us in a straight line following the Turnpike. The event lasted about 30 seconds but we don't think it was a balloon since they can't travel so fast and in straight lines. Thanks to: Peter B. Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center (
FORT WORTH -- My name is Doug McGinnis. I have been photographing contrails beginning in July of 1999, in the (Westpoint) /Saginaw area and I have both seen and photographed sphere type, star type and an oval type objects. I would like to inform you of this most recent sighting. On August 3, 2000, at work in Saginaw at 6:15 PM, I noticed a contrail elongating within a cloud in the eastern sky, then saw a silver 747 type jet emerge going straight up in a westward direction emitting a staggered line contrail. I walked into our home for no more that two minutes, when I returned the jet had vanished! I then observed a small white ball in the sky hovering near where the jet had been. I pointed it out to another coworker who also witnessed the sphere. It moved very slow to the west, where after about 5 minutes it disappeared. A week later on August 11, while at work in Saginaw (Bana Box Inc.), and two co-workers and I noticed a white ball in the same place in the sky at around 6:00 PM It just hovered there with just a little westward movement! The sky was relatively clear and I don't think it was "just a balloon". It was the same height as before, maybe around 5000 feet. Thanks to Doug McGinnis and Debra Livingston.

Amy Hebert writes, "I began studying contrails and "chemtrail" claims in October, 1999. I also began video taping and photographing the contrails overhead at the same time. In addition to collecting photographic evidence, I conducted a correlative study and studied other information but have not found verifiable evidence to substantiate the claims that contrails (or "chemtrails" as they are automatically labeled by believers) cause illnesses in human populations. In reference to claims of photographic evidence of UFO's in contrails, I reviewed the images as posted on the internet and found almost all resembled the same images of birds, bugs, lens flare, debris and conventional aircraft I had captured with my own cameras. I wrote a letter to MUFON about the claims of a Mr. Avery who says he has captured images of UFO's in chemtrails and referred them to a web site where I had posted images of birds, bugs, lens flare, debris and conventional aircraft similar to Mr. Avery's images for comparison. A Mr. Jeff Sainio, MUFON staff photoanalyst, wrote me back saying he had analyzed some of the images presented to him by Mr. Avery and found Mr. Avery's images of "UFO's" to actually be insects. As for " disappearing aircraft" I have observed this optical illusion many times and video taped it. That high up, anything can seem to "disappear" due to the haze. We must use common sense and analyze phenomena with careful, scientific study to avoid reaching premature and baseless conclusions.
MUSKOGEE -- I read your article about aircraft disappearing after leaving chemtrails. I wanted to let you know about two separate incidents that occurred approximately a month ago. The first incident occurred when I left my office and saw what appeared to be a C-130 prop driven transport plane. It was flying north on following Highway 69 right through Muskogee. The plane was bigger than my fist and appeared to be less than one hundred yards away. I noticed the plane did not make any noise and when it reached Highway 62 it turned west. After turning west, I noticed a brown substance being sprayed from the tail section of the aircraft. It was very low in the sky and I was wondering if it was having problems and was trying to find a place to land. The second occurrence happened while driving down the Broken Arrow Expressway between Broken Arrow and Tulsa. I looked up and saw what appeared to be a stealth black aircraft. It was also flying at low altitude and was as large as my fist and appeared to be less than one hundred yards away. I kept trying to hear the aircraft but never did hear anything. Other drivers were also looking at it because we do not see such aircraft around this part of the country. Thanks to Mike.
RIGGINS -- While camping along the Salmon River at 10:10 PM in north central Idaho, I saw a fire ball moving slowly from south to north for a couple of seconds, then was gone over the horizon on July 21, 2000. The fireball was yellow-orange, but appeared to have a blue halo around the core. The fireball moved parallel to the Big Dipper and its length was consistent with its length. The fireball moved very slowly compared to a shooting star and had a very long and very bright tail. It is hard to judge its distance, but I heard no sound nor anything that would indicate impact. Since the event was of such short duration, its hard to describe further. Thanks to NUFORC
ASHLAND -- Myself and a female friend on July 30, 2000, looked out of the car window to observe a large saucer hovering about 100 feet off the right side of the car at 11:38 PM. It then took off after what seemed like an eternity. I don't know how long it had been since my watch stopped along with the car. I estimate it was only 30 seconds although it seemed much longer. Thanks to NUFORC (
Jon McIntyre writes, "Dear Major George, my name is Jonathan I'm 12 years old, I'm very interested in UFOs. The first time I saw on was in the year 1999, when I was in fifth grade. My brother s aw it first around noon. The UFO was shiny like tin foil and went behind the trees. We didn't get to see it again. When I was in sixth grade I was spending the night at my friend's house with my other friend. We were sleeping on a tarp and we saw two lights heading straight for each other. I think the little one crashed then the big one started to disappear and reappear. Thanks to:
LOS ANGELES - Media person Damian Barna called to say he observed a low flying UFO on Wednesday, August 16, 2000, around 6:00 PM. The witness was at work at the Democratic Convention Center and noticed a low flying C-130 type green aircraft circling the area. He assumed it was there for some kind of antiterrorist aerial protection for key government officials. Looking to the West he noticed a fast moving luminous contrail being formed moving east in the clear blue sky coming towards him. At arm's length the luminous jet trail was two inches long and a quarter inch high about 8 inches above the horizon. When the luminous object and the C-130 aircraft came in close proximity to each other the luminous object disappeared. Damian felt the object deliberately put on a show to be seen by those around the convention and the aircraft. Thanks to Damian Barna.
ORO-MEDONTE TOWNSHIP -- The Ottawa Citizen ran an article August 12, 2000, reporting a preliminary diagram of a cluster of three circles found two days earlier in a farmers field. Based on aerial photos in the newspaper and from investigator June Mewhort the farmer reports no tracks or pathways; the circles look quite good in the aerial. |They are clean, crisp swirls with sharp edges.

QUETTA--The Nation Newspaper dated August 17, 2000, reports that the unidentified flying objects seen in the air Tuesday night in six different administrative districts of Balochistan remain unresolved. The government conducted a massive search for the culprits throughout day on Wednesday in two districts of Loralai and Barkhan. The witnesses say they saw seven flying objects, omitting lights and flames which were flying in echelon formation towards southeast coming from northwest. The provincial Home Secretary, Major Shehryar Khan Mahsod said, "Four helicopters were sent to the possible sites of landing of these objects in vein and that no one knew for sure what exactly flew in the air." Knowledgeable sources claim that these objects were even seen in Zabul province of neighboring Afghanistan while they traveled all along the seven districts, and then disappeared When contacted by The Nation, the Political Agent at Loralai, Shoib Mir Memon, told this scribe that it was strange that three flying objects were seen at the same time with the difference of few seconds of minutes in all districts right from Chaghi near the border of Afghanistan, to Loralai near the Punjab border and to another end. It is speculated they might be meteors because they disappeared. Thanks to Gerry at (gerry)
Tim Cooper writes, According to Edward Ruppelt's account preserved in his book "THE REPORT ON UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECTS" published in 1956, there were sightings in August, September and October of 1951. At approximately 9:00 P.M. on August 25, 1951, an employee of the Sandia Corporation's AEC subsidiary division, and his wife observed a large, triangle-shaped craft pass slowly and silently over Albuquerque, New Mexico, at a very low altitude. The object was described as a V-shaped wing with six-to-eight soft, glowing, bluish lights on the wing's leading edges. See,
