An Experience While In The U.S. AF Stationed At Mt. Laguna AFS
Enjoy reading your articles and thought I should "chime" in on the following:
Re: There were also some guys who did a night time "Close Air Support" drill at Yuma Marine Air Base in Arizona who told me a great UFO Story. If any of you who actually experienced that sighting are reading this, please relay your story.
I had an experience while in the U.S. Air Force stationed at Mt. Laguna AFS which might be related to the above. The 751st Radar Squadron was located about 12 miles north east of Pine Valley California on the edge of the desert and mountains at about 6,000 feet elevation. The time period was in the mid 1960s, probably 1965, in the mid summer evening about 20:00. Still light and clear skies and from that height over the clear dry desert you could sometimes see the Salton Sea. I was walking over to the "Ops" building from the AN-FPS-26 tower just as one of the "ops" officers was arriving. He was looking east out over the desert and pointed to a light about the size of a green pea held at arms length. He asked me what did I think it was. I initially though it was a naval military aircraft flying out in the area of the El Centro Naval Air Station which was in that direction about 45 miles east, and in the line-of-sight of Yuma, Arizona. After about 30 seconds, the light started to strobe and change colors with green, blue, red, white and yellow. Then I didn't think it was a Navy plane because I would only expect to see green and red position lights and landing lights. I don't know if strobe lights and a white tail light were required at that time for aircraft. I do know that Blue and Yellow were colors in the unknowns changing light scheme and those colors are not used in aviation.
There were other incidents at this radar station during my tour of duty, 1965 - 1967. Some I personally experienced and some I heard from others. Very interesting times indeed.
Thank you to the gentleman for this wonderful report.
Again I would sure like to hear from other military folks, serving or out of the service who have information on a sighting over one of the military installations. Please note I respect everyone's privacy.
Cannon Air Force Base in 1972 UFO Activity
I was stationed at Cannon Air Force Base in 1972 assigned to the 27th Tactical Fighter Squadron.Home to the F-111 fighter. During a routine maintence night I was completing some write ups on a F-111 so it would be airworthy the next morning. As I waited for an airpac compressor to arrive I got into the cockpit to watch a ECM (Electronic Counter Measure) technician make some adjustments on one of the radar units. He had what I recall the ground imaging radar on and I could see on the screen the area out ahead of the ramp including the horizon and even the trucks going down the highway. I never saw anything like that and at the time probably shouldn't have as much of the electronics on board was considered access on a need to know.
While watching the screen as the tech was making some adjustments I could see some bright globes on the screen. I could also see the vehicles going down the highway at the same time. I asked the airman sitting in the seat next to me what I was seeing and he said "spooks". I asked is what I'm seeing an anomaly of the radar? Is it broken? He said no,what we are seeing is UFO activity. He said sometimes he sees things like that when he runs the system. The objects were about 5 miles away and just hanging in the air just above the horizon. They appeared round in shape and there were maybe 5 or six spread out at the same altitude. The whole scenario was odd, I was very interested in seeing the radar work but taken completely by surprise with what I saw on the screen. He told me to keep my mouth shut as we both would end up at Thule...Thule, Greenland if spoke of it. That's all I can say, I never had another chance to sit in on a system test and watch the screen. I'm just amazed at how casual the technician treated the whole event.
Thank you.
Thank you to the person for this report. The military people have been incredible in their response by sending in so many reports. I would also be very interested in hearing from police officers who have been witness to a UFO or unexplained event.

Son Of Military Man Witnesses Object Over Clark Airforce Base
This may have no correlation to the USAF Airman's orange UFO account, however, my father was stationed at Clark Air Force base from 1986 to 1989 with the USAF Civil Engineering department and I was in high school at the time. Specifically in 1988, a friend from Wagner High (DOD overseas school) and I were sitting in front of her house around 2100 (9:00P.M.) and were observing an aircraft at what appeared to be high altitude executing loops and tight turning maneuvers.
At the time it only appeared as a single point of light like an aircrafts amber navigation light. We watched it for about five minutes and it finally made a flight path across a somewhat full moon and we saw that it was a circular object roughly about a quarter size of the moon,it had no wings or vertical stabilizer or protrusions. This kind of shocked the both of us because we thought it was one of the F-4 Phantom aircraft they normally flew at Clark Air Force base. The craft slowly continued with the same maneuvers until we lost site of it over her roof. We reflected on it for several minutes and chalked it up to imagination and continued joking around until about 2300 (11:00 P.M.).
Before I started walking toward the street with my friend to head home, a streak of light like a falling star zipped over head at low altitude in a horizontal flight path and blinked out before it met the tree line in front of us I believe to be a hundred yards in front of us. I do not believe this was a meteor or falling star due to the fact that i seemed so low altitude and didn't appear to be descending, but, rather, flying at a level altitude at a high rate of speed. This really got us both in a panic and I called my father to come pick me up rather than walk 2 blocks to my house on the base. Now, to the best of my recollection, what i write is as accurate of an account as my memory permits considering that this occurred fifteen years ago, however, I never forgot that what we both witnessed together that night. I am not saying that this account has any correlation with the Airman's account of an orange disk, but, stranger things have occurred in the Philippines than what you have been submitted. We never talked to anyone else about the flying sphere (as far as I know on her side), not out of fear or ridicule, but, we just chalked it up to another crazy night in the most superstitious Island in the south east orient. Just had to share this because of the story I read on the Rense site brought back some memories of that night.
Thank you for your speedy reply. I don't mind if you post my experience with my name. I have nothing to hide or be afraid of, the experience I shared with you is what we saw that night on Clark AFB. The experience left me more open minded to just about anything, if someone told me they saw a ghost in there lifetime, rather than blow them off as being a loon, I am more attentive to listen to the details and walk away intrigued. Now, there may be a worldly explanation as to what we saw that night, however, in my twelve years in the military (USN), I have yet to see current or special programs aircraft look or perform the way this craft performed that night in 1988. I wish you luck in your voyage to learn the truth and please keep up the good work. Sometimes, even without hard to dispute evidence of (using the term loosely) extra-terrestrial craft, the smoking gun evidence is in the testimonial descriptions of peoples accounts of what they witnessed in our skies that doesn't seem to fit our everyday notion of what is acceptable, or for that matter, normal. Good luck.
I would like to extend my make thanks to Mr. R/Allen Cracknell USN. Mr. Cracknell gave his permission to post his story with his name attached.
Germany - Former Military Man Tells His Story
Date: Around 1989
Dear Brian, This is a report told to me by a former military person who was stationed in Germany. Back around 1989, along with two military colleagues, he saw three oblong discoids moving across the sky in broad daylight"in Germany. Having been trained to calculate aircraft speeds in the field, he and his colleagues estimated that the three craft traveled at 3000-5000 mph. He says they moved in pulse-like jumps of energy, nearly disappearing at some point in the pulse cycle.
Also, one of his military base-mates told my contact and his military friends about how he had been sent, circa 1984-86, to do daytime guard duty in a remote, desert area of the US Southwest. On one of his guard postings at a remote, empty stretch of road in the desert, he said he turned at one point and saw the ground open up and a fairly large disc (I think the quote was that it was at least 50 feet diameter, if not more) which rose up out of the ground and soared off, almost soundlessly, then the ground closed back up. Whether it was a retractable door, I cannot say. Months after telling my (enlisted) contact and his (enlisted) military friends of the incident, the given soldier was arrested by his Army superiors and taken in on reportedly trumped up charges. He was never seen again. The story spread that he had hung himself while in Army prison, a story that his colleagues didn,t buy. His case was marginally suspicious because he had acted almost like a kind of planted Intel. agent in the military, the kind who was suspected to report to officers about everything. There were other paranormal incidents that further piqued my contact,s colleagues on such subjects. Further complicating the case is the fact that my contact,s military colleagues (all enlisted) had long been interested in anything that smacked of alien-related doings in the Army. Their officers had been quiet, if not offish, on the subject. This was during a time when murder was the recourse for secrecy---before Disclosure was a household word, before Corso and so on. Hence, the uniformed disposition was typically repressive and cold. I can give you the person,s email address if you like.
Thank you to the gentleman for this interesting story.
Burlington, Kentucky Hovering Oval Craft
Date: November 92
Time: Evening
Location of Sighting: Off of 275 next to Ohio River.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Oval
Full Description of event/sighting: I was deer hunting. it was a crisp cold day. I always hunt the power lines because the deer like to graze under the power lines. I was coming up a hill when I felt alot of, what appeared to be, static electricity in the air. I had never felt that before around the power lines but I thought that it could be the power lines making it feel very weird. as I getting close to the top, I saw an oval shaped object, dark gray in color just hovering above the ground roughly about 20 feet above the ground and close to the power lines.
I hate to say it but it scared me to death. I turned and ran down the hill, got in my car and drove straight home. It scared me to the core. No I never looked back either. I totally wish that I had never seen that thing. Have had nightmares about it also..
I told my wife what had happened. She believed me because I was totally white with fright.
Never again have I gone hunting in that area alone. Never will either.
Thank you to the witness for this report.
Elgin, Ontario Bright Flash And ?
Date: July 2000
Time: Around midnight
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: ?
Shape of objects: ?
Full Description of event/sighting: A friend and I had ventured to Delta, Ontario for the fair. On the way home we decided to take the back road home because we had had a few drinks and thought it was best not to travel the main highway. To this day either of us cannot explain what happened that night. The only words to describe our experience is fear. We were about a km up the road from the highway and we both remember it being a really dark night. We can't recall bad weather to cancel out lightning. It was a beautiful summers night. Nothing was out of the ordinary laughing, talking and the next thing we knew there was and incredible flash from the drivers side. Our bodies tingled and our ears rang . We were deaf for what seemed like hours. But what we can't figure out is we didn't hear a thing.There was absolutely no noise. To this day either of us have traveled that road at night. Ever since that day I am afraid of the dark and will not go out alone at night, or on the hottest nights sleep with my windows open or unlocked. I always feel like I'm being watched. I am hoping you can explain or other people have experienced an event similar to ours. This is not my first sighting but it is the most bizarre.
Thank you to the person for this report.
HBCC UFO Note: I have looking into this event to see if there was a possible missing time experience that had taken place.
Maple Grove Cemetery, Argos, Indiana Triangular Shaped Craft
Date: June 8, 2004
Time: 5:15 a.m.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Stealth Bomber
Full Description of event/sighting: I was setting my camera up to get pictures of Venus going past the sun on June 8,2004 when I decided to take a few shots of the moon.I took the picture around 5:15 AM.
I was using a 35 mm camera with a 1000 mm lens.
When I got the film developed I found this Stealth Bomber shape object at the 1:00 position of the moon.I have sent the picture off to a couple of different places and One says it is a UFO and the other says it is a bat. I know what bats look like and it is no bat. Besides bats don't fly that high.
I would like to send you a picture so maybe you can tell me what it is. I am hoping I have captured something.
What I have it is Sort of Triangular but at the same time looks like the Stealth Bomber. It has 3 sets of white lights at the top and 3 sets on the bottom. What ever it is it is very large and a long way off because it could not be seen with the naked eye.
Thank you.
Thank you to the witness for the report and picture.
Fort Devens, Massachusetts Oval-Shaped Silver-Metallic Object
Date: June 9, 2004
Time: Approx. 2200 hours
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Oval
Full Description of event/sighting: Hi Brian
I've been reading about all the other military personnel coming forward with their experiences at various bases so I wanted to give you mine...
Active duty military, U.S. Army. I was watching TV with my two roommates. The movie 'Ice Station Zebra' was on a major network. It's a two hour movie. I left in the middle, and went for a walk (about 2200hrs). I walked from the Barracks to the football field in front of USATC & S Building. The Officer's Quarters were behind me, the flagpole was to my left, and I was facing the church at the other end of the field. It was a cool, clear night. I saw a big white light coming towards the church. As it got closer, I noticed that it wasn't just a light. It came closer still and I saw it was an oval-shaped silver-metallic object with six individual lights on the bottom rotating (red, green, yellow, orange, light blue, white). I heard a slight humming sound, similar to noise that bees make. As it got closer, I noticed three occupants in the clear top section.
I remember they had on jumpsuits with a semi-circle red emblem ((())) on it. I was able to see equipment behind them.
The ship hovered over the flagpole. I felt surprised, but didn't move.
The next thing I knew--I woke up to my alarm set for 0600, got dressed in my uniform and went to work. I think this happened on a Wednesday night. I left for the weekend on Friday night and returned on Sunday. When I returned my two roommates told me that two Men-In-Black had come looking for me on Saturday. They had shown them official identification. They asked them: "What did she see?" "Who did she tell it to?" "Does she have any proof?" "Where can we find her?" This gave me Goosebumps all over when they told me. I had to go to the public library to find out what MIB was. I felt fear when I found out, but I never did see them.
Thank you to the person for this great report.
Lone Lake Park in Minnetonka, Minnesota
Date: July 13, 2004
Time: 9:45 a.m.
I just read your article on Rense about western Minnesota orbs spotted today. and was reminded me that yesterday (July 13) I took a walk around a small lake in the western Twin Cities area with a friend about 9:45 a.m. We had stopped to rest on a bench on the west end of the lake overlooking it when my friend asked, "What are those?" At first I thought they were birds, and said so
But then we agreed they were much too high. There were 8 or 9 white orbs swooping and dancing around, orbiting each other. We were looking almost into the sun toward the east; they were probably about 40 degrees above the horizon. Then I noticed a much larger object streaming across the sky, SW to NE, above them yet in their midst. We watched the show for about a 1-1/2 minutes, and then all of them simply disappeared.
Additional Information:
The lake is, I believe, what is called a kettle and is surrounded by hills. I have photographed it and painted it and may have a photo -- if you want.
All objects were bright white, but were near the sun -- at least from our vantage point. I had to shade my eyes from the sun in order to see them. My friend's spot on the bench was slightly shaded by a tree, which is no doubt why she spotted them first.
Thank you to the witness for their report.
Fargo, North Dakota Bright Light Hanging Over The City
Date: July 14, 2004
Time: Around 3:30 a.m.
Hi Brian,
I'm located in Fargo, ND, just across the Red River, from Western MN. Last night at around 3:30 a.m., (July 14) I was carrying a bag of trash to the dumpster. I closed the lid on the dumpster, turned around, looked up and was surprised to see a *very* bright light hanging quite high almost directly over the center of town. My first thought was "Venus", and then I realized it was not in the right place to be Venus. I then realized that it was also at least twice as bright as Venus, and at the same time I noticed it was slowly moving. A few seconds later, it moved a little higher and then quickly faded away and disappeared. The only "color" I noticed was white...I didn't see any other colors. As it disappeared however, the (moving) shape seemed to be roughly similar to the pictures on the Rense website.
At the time of the sighting, I was listening to a Sony Walkman using brand new headphones. As soon as this object disappeared, the right channel on my headphones stopped working. I checked the headphones on a different stereo later, and they worked fine. I don't recall any rough movements that might have damaged the radio. I suppose it could be a
coincidence (the Walkman itself is fairly old), but I did find it a bit odd that it would fail at that moment. The entire sighting lasted maybe 10 seconds.
Can you tell me approximately how far from Fargo, the sighting in West Central Minnesota was on that same night?
Thank you to the witness for their report.
West Central Minnesota Another Similar Object
Date: July 16, 2004
Time: 5:00 a.m. CST
Bright light appears in Eastern sky. Just appears,. Turns on? No other flight of Orbs type of thing just appears! Appears to morph or separate itself. Abrupt turn off. Not fading or anything like that, not shooting away,. I didn,t take a still after turn off! Kick me! Venus is on lower horizon but viewable separately. Again multiple stills are attached. See if someone can do more. I also ran 7 minutes of Sony video but I am new to the camera and I am learning what to do to download and then send video so as soon as I am adept I,ll send that to you. I have a friend, the man can interface with computers I swear! Very patient teacher too.
Thank you to the witness for the report.

Prince George, B.C. Light Changes Color
Date: July 16, 2004
Time: Approx: 1:00 a.m.
Hi Brian.
Last night just before 1 a.m. Mom and I went for a little stroll and we saw another light. Just like the one we saw on the 12th but this time it was going from West to East. Again it was not as high as a Satellite; it was white but as it grew distant from us, had appeared to grow orange in color. It was clear last night with many stars visible. It traveled in straight line and then it just disappeared as it started to turn orange. It did not look like a fire ball or falling star. I did see one falling star last night though, and this light did not behave like that. There were no clouds that it could have went behind as there were lots of stars where it disappeared in the sky. Because it is close to New Moon you could see every star up there and nothing would be obscured from our view. Oh, and once again the TV was acting up last night before we had the sighting. Also, the light made no noise and had no other lights on it. No red or blue like aircraft. That's it for now.
Thank you to the witnesses for their report.
