Ghost In Our House
We had a ghost in our house when I was young; he normally took the form of a man from the 30's era or so, he had a pin-striped suit and a straw hat. My brother saw him more frequently than anyone else (my older brother) though my mom and dad both admitted to seeing him or having strange things happen around the house. We weren't the only home in this small town that saw him. Some of our neighbors (especially the older folks) admitted to seeing him either in the neighborhood or in their homes. He seemed harmless. They called him the Traveling Man cause it was generally believed that he was the ghost of a traveling salesman. My oldest brother (I am the youngest of 3) never really told me about an strange experiences though, just the middle brother and my parents. My daughter hasn't told me about any strange
things happening. She just seems to have had the normal childhood fears of the dark, etc.
Thank you to the person for the report.
San Antonio, Texas Alien Encounter ?
Message: My name is (removed), I live in San Antonio, TX, and I have a couple of things to report. It is rather strange cause I really wasn't intending to make a report I was just curious about your site. However, I now feel compelled to report these strange happenings especially since I have only just read a bunch of stories and seen photos of 'scoop' marks... And I have an unexplained scar on my foot.
Anyway, to get to it: Years ago while a child in a small South Texas town, I somehow obtained an A-shaped (or triangle-shaped) scar on the top of my right foot (near the ankle). I remember impressions and 'feelings' more than any actual event concerning the scar. I remember asking my mother about it once and she said it must be a birthmark but it doesn't look like any birthmark I have ever seen... I even remember arguing with her (I was probably younger than 8 or so) about it saying that the 'ant' did it. When I think back, I have a feeling or impression of a large "ant" face. A gray perhaps?
At any rate, it is an upside down "A" shape that is raised like a scar. The reason I say "A" as opposed to "triangle" is that the center is a hollow "triangle" (so a raised triangle surrounding a hollow triangle). I have had it for as long as I can remember but to this day it is somewhat uncomfortable if I press on it. I am wondering if maybe I was studied and "marked" in some way like you here about from time to time.
Throughout my childhood I was near terrified of the dark. I guess that isn't strange but I used to have vivid dreams and even see "ghosts" or something in the darkness of the room. As I grew older I began to experience night terrors, those situations where you wake up but you can't come to full consciousness and there is a terrible weight on your chest and a feeling of impending doom or death (and it is an absolute certainty that something is approaching- something is JUST outside the door).
After one particular night terror, I woke fully (and trembling) and started back to bed. Once there I had a CLEAR memory of two large but squat creatures dressed in dark clothing walking into my room followed by a tall gray. I think I dreamt it while I was in and out of my night terror, I don't know.
Now on to the sighting. I don't recall a good deal of it. For some reason my whole memory of it is fuzzy. I drove north on Interstate 10 from San Antonio, turned at Comfort, TX., on my way via back roads to my parent's place in Centerpoint, TX. My 3 year old daughter was with me. I am not sure what time of the year it was (which to me is one of the strangest things about this sighting- I put it out of my mind fairly quickly after experiencing it).
Anyway, I do remember that it was late afternoon/early evening. The sun hadn't quite started going down yet. They sky was really blue and their were few clouds (once again, certain things I DO remember). As we drove along behind a lady in a car (my daughter in the front seat of my truck) I suddenly saw sparks in the sky through my windshield. At the same time, the lady in front of my suddenly slammed on her brakes and pulled over. I pulled over as well (behind her) and was about to get out and ask her what was wrong when I saw her pointing up into the sky (we were headed roughly west and she was pointing up and slightly to the northwest).
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Toronto, Ontario Cylindrical Objects
Date: June 26, 2004
Time: 1:45 p.m.
Location of Sighting: Vicinity of Markham Road and Lawrence Ave.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 2
Shape of objects: Cylindrical
Full Description of event/sighting: Relaxing in my in-laws backyard on a lawn chair watching my three children play, I leaned back and gazed up at a very clear blue sky adorned with clusters of white clouds. I noticed a large off-white cylinder-type shape steadily moving towards the east at a constant rate of velocity. Periodically it would fly through grouped clouds and then re-emerge. I watched it until it vanished off in the distance some 90 or so seconds later. Unlike commercial aircraft, this object emitted no sound, exhaust or vapor trail. Based on my estimation of its altitude it appeared to be five to 6 times the length and width of a typical 747.
Approximately 30 minutes later, my brother in-law pointed out a small but distinct silver-grey disk-like object hovering towards the south-east. This second object was not moving in any direction, nor was it shrouded in cloud. The second sighting lasted approximately 2 minutes and merely vanished !
Over the years I have looked up and seen hundreds if not thousands of conventional aircraft. What I saw on that clear June day was nothing short of compelling. These two sightings were not conventional aircraft.
Thank you to the witness for the report.

Kaufman County, Texas Brilliant High Flyer (Video/Pictures)
Date: September 16, 2004
Time: Approx: 6:00 p.m.
I caught another High Flyer yesterday, (day light) I've been after him for about two weeks now. Where I usually set up just about the same time I'll look up and there he is. I got about 2 or 3 seconds of him about six days ago and he went behind a tree and I lost him. I saw him sooner yesterday and got 20 or 30 seconds before he went behind the tree.
Additional Information:
I've been trying to capture this object I've been seeing for about two weeks now. I call it the High Flyer because it's probably six or more miles up. I haven't heard a noise from it, but have seen it luckily about three times. It comes over close to the same time (about 6:00pm) or at least that's when I've been seeing it. On 09-10-04,I captured about 5 or 6 seconds of it, and on 09-16-04, I finally got about 20 or 30 seconds of it. I guess because of all the hurricanes, we've been having mostly clear days here, which is very unusual for here. Anyway this thing comes from the northeast going southwest every time I've seen it. With the naked eye it looks like a point of light in the blue sky. It moves pretty fast, I'd guess about 5 or 6 hundred miles per hour. It doesn't appear to have wings that I can see. I'm sending you a clip of it to see what you think
Thank you to the witness for the report, pictures and video footage.

Kaufman County, Texas Object And Small Aircraft
Date: September 17, 2004
Time: Between 7:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.
Hi Brian
This is another one I caught between 7:30 and 8:00 p.m. on 09-17-04. I was taping this small plane when I noticed this orb either was coming down or going west, I really couldn't tell. This was very unusual to capture a white orb this late in the evening that was moving. It was mostly clear this evening with lots of planes and things in the sky, a very good day for skywatching here. I'm sending you a clip of it for your analysis.
Thank you to the witness for the report, pictures and video footage.

Bettles, Alaska Humming Form UFO
Date: September 17, 2004
Time: 2:30 a.m.
Witness' narrative:
"I live in a remote town in northern Alaska. After having dinner at a friend I went home. My place is located about two mile south of town. There is a airport located there and a rotating beacon for the airport. I have lived here for nearly thirty years. Being located away from town it is extremely quite with very little noise. I went to sleep around 11:00PM. I was awaken by a humming sound that was not real loud, almost like a fluorescent lamp with a bad ballast. I thought it was my inverted down
stairs and got up to see if something was wrong. As I was laying in bed I could see the light from the airport beacon flashing in the north window. I sat up and noticed red and white lights flashing on the trees thru the east window. I thought it might be some of the locals stuck in my driveway and the red and white lights were from the rear of the vehicle. I then got
out of bed to look out the window facing my driveway.
I never even looked down as I immediately seen the source of the lights. Just above the tree top was an object just hanging there not moving. My best estimate it was about 20 to 30 feet across and about 6 to 8 feet thick. It was more or less disk shaped from what I could tell. The upper part of the object was dark while the bottom had red and white lights that flashed in no apparent pattern but random. I stepped back from the window and grabbed the phone to attempt to call the local weather service as they were staffed 24 hours a day. I was able to get someone and told them to look towards my house
and see if they could see what I was seeing. Due to the trees in his area he was not able to see my house. I kept thinking to myself that this can't be happening, this is not real. After maybe a minute on the phone I was becoming desperate to get someone to see this and not just me.
I then contacted another person I thought might be able to see my place. Again due to the trees surrounding his place he could not see my place. By now I had become very disturbed or a better word I was scared. I stood in the middle of the room not know what to do. It must have been two minutes by now and the object began to move toward the house. As it passed above the house it again stopped. It seemed to just stay there for a long time then suddenly there was an extremely bright white light that scanned the entire yard and house three or four times. It stopped and didn't move for a few seconds and then started moving to the south slowly. I didn't move till I could no longer see any lights outside. I then informed the other party that if he did not hear from me in two minutes to come looking. I then dressed grabbed a firearm and flashlight and went down stairs. I went outside looking for it but it was gone. I then quickly drove to town and stayed at the weather station till morning light."
Investigator's note:
The object's size, as judged by the witnesses from its movement over nearby trees, was 20-30 feet by 6-8 feet, and was within 50 feet of the witness. It was disc-shaped, dark on top and illuminated on the bottom. The witness was contacted on September 20, 2004, and was in good spirits but still shaken by the event. "I just keep thinking It couldn't have been real. Things like this don't exist.'"
Thank you to Chris Rutkowski for this report.

Denver, Colorado Numerous Objects
Date: September 17, 2004
Time: 4:30 p.m.
About 4:30 PM yesterday (17th) I needed a break from the computer and went outside. I noticed a contrail to the West, waited a bit to see if it would turn into a chemtrail. At this time it was about 6 inches long. It was high and I couldn't really make out the plane, as the sun was nearby. All of the sudden the contrail went "poof" and disappeared. I thought the plane had too, but as I watched the plane did appear and fly high overhead. It was white and had a military look about it, no contrail. As I watched it pass nearly overhead, I all of a sudden noticed something round and shiny approaching closely from the North. It was at about the height that planes are taking off from nearby Denver International Airport as they go over my house. This ball seemed to turning over and over, I am not sure if it was a ball or a disk. As it rolled around it would flash light from the western sun. it passed directly over head and then one at a time 2 more appeared. The 3 of them appeared to be playing with each other, changing directions many times. I was entertained for about 5 minutes. They could have be morphing, but I think they were just rolling about. That is why I am not sure of the exact shape. But it was delightful to watch.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Chandler, Arizona Weather Balloon Spotted
Date: September 17, 2004
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Brian, I work for (removed) at their Chandler, AZ facility. One of the engineers I work with spotted the weather balloon at sunrise when it took on an eerie glow. I was on my way back from my morning break at about 9:00 a.m., when he pointed the balloon out to me. We looked at it for a few minutes and went on to our regular duties when I had an idea. I called the engineer to ask if he could get a hold of the digital camera we use to document equipment changes and set ups when he told me that he had found out it was a weather balloon launched by ASU! Your story states that it was launched from New Mexico. Seems like there was a lot of confusion at the time. Incidentally, I heard on the news last night that a hurricane was moving into the Baja area and were are expecting rain here today and Sunday. I wonder if the "calm before the storm contributed to the balloons lack of movement. Thanks for the story and photos.
Thank you to the person for the report.
Oshawa, Ontario Round Circle Of Light
Date: September 20, 2004
Time: 10:30 to 10:45 p.m.
Location of Sighting: In Oshawa at the lake park.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: round circle of light centre was blue sky, reminded me of what a solar eclipse looks like at its peak with the outer ring of light.
Full Description of event/sighting: My mother and I were watching a small plane go by and head back north to the airport. While we were looking up but turned to look south east we saw this circle of light, blue sky in the centre. We took pictures and watched with binoculars. It was quite far but with the binoculars the circle was quite bright, reminding me of a solar eclipse. We watched for close to 15 minutes as it moved slowly across the sky to the east and then disappeared. There was a trail of exhaust from the small plane. The circle was near the exhaust but didn't lose its shape like the exhaust. I have four pictures with the circle. It may be nothing but I'm curious as to what it was.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
