Filer's Files
California UFO Wave

Filer's Files #49 - 2004, Skywatch Investigations
George A. Filer, Director MUFON Eastern
Vice President of Skywatch International
November 24, 2004, Webmaster: Chuck Warren
The purpose of these files is to report the UFO eyewitness and photo/video evidence that occurs on a daily basis around the world and in space as reported each week. Many people claim it is impossible for UFOs to visit Earth, I ask you only to keep an open mind and watch the evidence we accumulate each week. These Files make the assumption that extraterrestrial intelligent life exists and my hypothesis is that of the over one hundred UFO reports each week many represent factual UFO sightings in our skies.
UFOs were seen over California, Colorado, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, South Dakota  Tennessee, and  Washington. Sightings were also reported in Canada, Mexico, India, and the Netherlands. New Mexico - New Roswell Evidence
California - UFO Wave of Sightings
SANTA ANA - The witness was outside on November 5, 2004, at 10:50 AM, on E. Dyer Road, when behind a building he saw 15 round objects high in the sky. They were too high to be birds but they were flying slowly in unison. Some lined up three in a row or  four in a row showing different overall designs. They stayed for over two minutes then flew higher so that I was unable to see them again. They were reflecting off the sun off and on. Thanks to Peter Daveport Director
LAGUNA BEACH-NEWPORT BEACH -- It was 10:45 PM on November 6, 2004, and the witness was driving north on PCH, coming home from work when he saw a white bright light fly down from the sky at an almost perpendicular+ drop. It stopped 150 meters above the beach level. It was the whitest light like reflected snow. It had a small diamond shape with a small tail. There was a sudden disappearance of the object. It was moving at a speed that no man made object could move being so close to the water. I had my windows up and music lightly playing, but I heard no crash or saw no impact into the ocean or beach. I advised someone ASAP to search the water off-shore for anything unusual. As soon as the object disappeared, the "check engine" light on my car came on, but my engine did not stop. It was not an asteroid/meteor, no fireworks, and not a plane or a helicopter. The sighting was about 35 miles from Camp Pendleton. The witness states, "What I saw was no hallucination!" Thanks to Peter Daveport Director
MODESTO - R. David Anderson writes, "I took this picture when it was slightly overcast and I noticed a light that was moving rapidly to the south." It arched downwards before it disappeared beyond the horizon. The thin cloud layer, or haze, scattered the light and caused this purple hue. The ufo was moving real fast at the time that I took this photo.
Thanks to R. David Anderson
PALMDALE -- While out photographing a meteor shower Mike" 22 and "Lance" 22 sighted three triangles in a circle spinning at fantastic speeds then stop and disappear on the evening of August 16, 2004 at about 1:30 AM.. While they sighted this event "Mike" called his girlfriend on his cell phone and while talking the cell phone died. Then the camera they had which was fully charged died and would not work. The camera noted "Battery Dead". When both returned home the cell phone worked and the camera as it was placed in its charger stated it had a full charge. Their location was 47th and "S" streets. The craft were flying at the height of high altitude jet flight patterns an estimated 20,000 feet. At arm's length holding a quarter, the craft were the size of a quarter. No noise was associated with this event. The triangles had a half sphere shape to them. The men saw high definition shapes in the crafts bodies. Thanks to Cosmic Connection 
SAN DIEGO-- Melvin Podell MUFON is investigating a case. The witness stated, "After fifty years of looking at the sky in the hope of seeing a UFO, I now have." On Saturday, October 30, 2004, at 9:44 PM, I was standing near the corner of Poway Road and Gate Lane at the eastern end of Poway, a northern suburb of San Diego. I was looking almost exactly overhead in a cloudless sky, with a light haze that was illuminated by the city lights and the almost full moon about 15 degrees above the eastern horizon. He states, "I was stunned to see a black triangle moving at tremendous speed directly south toward the hills that are the southern boundary of Poway Valley." The distance between my location and the crest of the hills is 5.5 miles, and 5 miles NE from MCAS (Marine Corps Air Station. The speed of the triangle was not less than that of many meteors! The craft was in sight for about 1.5 seconds. It was an entirely black equilateral (or close to equilateral) triangle having seven bright yellowish-white lights, rather like the color of incandescent lamps, except much larger and brighter.  There was one light at each apex and two equally spaced between the leading apex and the apex on each side. There were no lights on the trailing flat edge. It was because of these lights and the reflection from the ground light that I could see the object clearly.
It was completely silent, probably even in the ultrasonic range as none of the many dogs in the area seemed disturbed. Although it was below the line-of-sight radar at the MCAS as long as it was in Poway Valley, it clearly would have entered its view as soon as it rose above the southern hills, because the MCAS is just a mile or two directly south of the hills. The triangle did not maneuver, except for one slight dip of the right wing which was quickly corrected. The angular width was that of my thumb at arm's length. What impressed me was the incredible speed of the object. Its speed was literally, not figuratively, meteoric. It increased its altitude to clear the hills.  Submitted by Mel Podell, MUFON-San Diego
New Mexico - New Roswell Evidence
Tom Carey writes, "The Roswell investigative team of Tom Carey and Don Schmitt continues to move forward on the investigation of the 1947 Roswell Incident. Even though the World War Two generation - the generation to which most of the first-hand witnesses belong - continues to pass on at an alarming rate, the team continues to turn up new witnesses to the 1947 events. Having just returned from another investigative trip to New Mexico, the team can report that it has located and interviewed the following witnesses:
1. A first-hand witness who accompanied the alien bodies from the hangar [Bldg. #84 on the old Roswell Army Air field] to the base hospital. They were in body bags, but he got a good look at them when uncovered.
2. A first hand witness who drove trucks to and from the crash site hauling wreckage. He saw several alien bodies at the site and one alien that was alive.
3. A first hand witness who saw a live alien at [now] Wright Patterson Air Force Base.
4. The wife of a sheriff's deputy [dec.] whose husband was sent out to the crash site and found a large blackened, burnt spot before darkness set in.
5. A Corona woman who heard the alien craft emitting a strange sound as it passed over her ranch just before hearing it explode in the distance during a thunder and lightning storm. She said that she had never heard anything like it before or since.
5. A woman who saw the stricken craft fly over just before it crashed.
The team was also able to pinpoint the exact date of the crash and they are planning their next archaeological dig in conjunction with the University of New Mexico at the Foster Ranch site, the site that we dug two years ago with the Sci Fi Channel. The new dig will take place in the spring of 2005. Anyone interested in participating in the 2005 dig should go to our website and fill out an application. Thanks to Tom Carey
Colorado -- Disk
HIGHLANDS RANCH -- I was watching TV on November 5, 2004, when I heard a bang outside at 9:15 AM.  I thought it was a gun shot, so I ran outside. The other neighbors were out there also. We both exchanged that we thought we heard gunshots. And then we saw something in the sky. It changed colors every 3 seconds and it was in the shape of a saucer.  It floated in about 5,000 feet above us. It was exactly similar to how the saucers did in the movie Signs. It also made eerie sounds. Like an hmmm sound. Thanks to Peter Daveport Director 
Arkansas - Cylinder 
RUSSELLVILLE -- This cylinder shaped object was moving in a straight line north to south on November 5, 2004, at 11:20 PM. It had, two reddish lights, one toward the front, one near the rear. No sound was heard and it looked rather low flying and looked almost transparent. My wife and I spotted it directly above the house and watched it move away until it got behind the tree. Thanks to Peter Daveport Director
Florida - Gold Object and Light
LAKELAND -- My husband and I were driving on I-4 east, coming from Tampa, on our way home to Orlando on November 6, 2004, at 12:40 AM. My husband grabbed my arm and pointed at something in the sky. The object was round with a short trail that was gold in color and bright. It seemed very far away. We thought it was a comet or shooting star at first, but then the trail instantly turned off. The round object kept moving for a few seconds, and then also instantly disappeared. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director <>
CEDAR KEY -- Eric reports, "I was locking my gate to my property in Tiger Island on State Road 374 about 9 miles from Cedar Key at 9 PM on November 22, 2004." I looked up just as a very bright welders like light lit up the forest on a state preserve. It was white hot light the size of a Volks- wagen about 50 yards in off the paved road. It had a smoke trail exiting out the bottom and was about 40 feet off the ground just below the tree tops. It illuminated the woods from left to right as far as I could see! It went out in two seconds! Having two close encounters in 1995 in the same place I didn't even lock the gate and drove off at 100 mph.  Thanks to Eric
New Jersey - Lights 
LAKE HIAWATHA -- Ray Gallup writes, "I saw something in the sky southeast of here over Lake Hiawatha, on November 16, 2004, that seems not to be a star or plane, but has been hovering in the sky since 11PM, last night."  Thanks to Ray Gallup
New York - Two UFOs
BREEZY POINT -- Joe age 37, and a friend saw two UFOs in clear weather at 8:40 ET on September 12, 2004. The two dark objects spun and rotated in flight as they passed overhead at about 1000 feet traveling towards the north-northeast. They were on an obvious trajectory that both shared. They appeared to be about ten feet long with round middle and thin ends. Thanks to
Indiana - Flying Triangle
BLOOMINGTON -- Lynn Taylor reports, "At 7:10 PM, the witness was southbound on Walnut Street on November 13, 2004, approaching the intersection of State Highway 45 when she observed a large triangle shaped object. The object was traveling southeast, toward the busy intersection ahead. As the object approached the witness could see two red lights, one on the tip of each trailing edge. She also described the center of the craft as having an amber-colored light or lights that constantly changed shape. As the object crossed the intersection, the witness momentarily looked away to check the traffic conditions. When she looked up again to observe the craft, only a single red light was visible. She was insistent that the object was triangle-shaped, and was not an advertising blimp. The witness indicated her confidence in the object's shape because its lighting partially illuminated the underside. She further offered that the object was much too fast and low to be a blimp, anyway. From her conversation and description of the sighting and my familiarity with the area, I would estimate the object was flying approximately 120 feet above the ground. Thanks to Lynn Taylor Sentinel Files
Ohio - Disk and Object with Flashing Lights
PEEBLES - The witnesses saw flashing lights that looked like strobe lights at 8:30 PM, engine sounds were heard and they moved very quickly and seemed to be moving in a zigzag line.  It could have been any of the lights that were flashing.Thanks to Peter Davenport
AKRON -- Looking outside of class at the University of Akron around 6 PM, on November 6, 2004, the witness saw a round object high in the sky.  It was so weird it looked like a disk that was floating.
CLEVELAND -- George P. Pindroh, MUFON State Sectional Director, Cuyahoga and Lorain County, Ohio writes, "I am pleased to tell you that our meeting of the Cleveland Ufology Project Saturday night was a fantastic success! George Ritter traveled more than 100 miles to present a great program showing the many videos he has taken of various unidentified objects flying at very fast speeds past his camera setup in Fostoria, Ohio. Besides the great videos George was very articulate telling of his adventures in the US Army. With a full house attending, George kept everyone captivated! I am planning to write up a story about George Ritter very soon. Thanks to - George Pindroh, MUFON  
FOSTORIA - Two images of similar craft taken from George Ritter's recent video. George spends thousands of hours examining each frame of his video. A two hour tape can take over ten hours to examine frame by frame.               
REDFIELD - The witness reports seeing a craft or light traveling from SW to NE at a slow speed at 6:17 PM, on November 13, 2004. It was yellow orange in appearance and was flying rather low. There were no blinking lights and no noise. He states, "The yellow-orange light was moving away from me, so it was not aircraft landing lights on a clear night" I had good sight of it, and it suddenly blinked out and was gone." The wind was SSE at 15 miles per hour and the temp is about 25F. At arm's length, it was the size of a small pea. It was very bright in light. Thanks to  Jim Hickman, BMET, FSI Executive Director Skywatch International Inc.      
Tennessee - Loud Rumblings.
BRISTOL -- At approx. 18:10 hours, Nov 21, 2004, reports started piling in to this station of a very loud rumbling noise above the solid cloud cover, shaking doors and windows all over Bristol, Elizabethton and Johnson City Tn. I also felt this phenomenon and went outside to hear what sounded like afterburners moving away at about 125 degrees and at an indeterminate elevation. The rumble lasted for some 3-4 minutes and actually shook the ground.
I got in touch with the FAA office at Tri Cities Airport. They advised me that they had received many calls and that the radar operator had no returns on the screen at any elevation, no radio contact with any aircraft and in fact they were as clueless as we were. The controller also advised me that "the government" will be looking into the anomaly and had already been in touch with him. Also, a check with USGS showed no seismic activity in the area. This , I suppose is one for the unknown category. Thanks to Kim Shaffer MUFON TN. SD 
Washington - Flying Triangle
SEATTLE - The witness was watching the Northern Lights on November 7, 2004, at 11:42 PM, when he noticed that something had entered his field of vision from the Northwest. At first, he thought it was a big falling star and in next  five seconds it crossed directly overhead and on to the Southeast. He states, "I could see clearly that it was a triangular vehicle with round glowing circles on the bottom and the edges glowed...the whole thing glowed orange and not in a way I have seen in the sky before." There was no sound at all. "I was mostly impressed by the clarity of its shape and the straightness of its path." I am completely overwhelmed. Thanks to Peter Davenport
Canada - Mighty close encounter?
Bob Holliday, Staff Reporter of the Winnipeg Sun writes, "Terry McDonald thought his eyes were playing tricks last week when he saw a bright light following his truck." "The light was behind me. It was so bright, I thought my dome light was shorting out," said McDonald from his home in Crane River, about 320 km northwest of Winnipeg. McDonald did start to worry when his truck intermittently lost power over the course of about a kilometer. McDonald's sighting wasn't a rare occurrence, said Manitoba's leading UFO researcher, Chris Rutkowski. "It was fairly quiet and now all of a sudden a whole bunch of things are happening," said Rutkowski. "I've had a number of reports in the past two weeks." Among the sightings was "a whole bunch of disc-like lights hovering on top of a Greyhound bus traveling on Highway 6 between Ericksdale and Ashern last Tuesday," said Rutkowski. As well, he's received reports of lights west of Kenora, Ontario. A Kenora resident, who wished to remain anonymous, claimed he saw a saucer-like object on Monday. The man said the object was hovering about 18 meters (60 feet) above the ground about 10 km west of Keewatin. He observed the saucer for nearly an hour before it moved fairly slowly across the tree tops.
The most reported light show is the convergence of the planets Jupiter and Venus, said Rutkowski. "They are very close together and look like an airplane coming into land but not going anywhere," he added. A landing plane wasn't what was witnessed in Crane River, said McDonald's daughter, Tracey McDonald, who saw something odd in the sky about 1:30 a.m. on Thursday. "It was many green, red and white flashing lights that were really low. Then, there was a big white flash, as big as a house," she said. McDonald said neighbors have reported seeing small, disk-like lights darting between trees in nearby forests. Reports of UFOs in Canada have skyrocketed. "The fact we have 700 sightings (in Canada) this year is interesting," Rutkowski said. "We didn't even have 700 total last year." Thanks to: l
TECUMSEH -- I am a licensed electrician working for one of the big 3 automakers on vacation, not drinking alcohol or taking any mind altering substance.   On November 6, 2004, at 1:05PM, I was talking with my father on a portable phone looking out the south window at the sky.  I noticed an object in the southeast sky that was about as big as a pea at arm's length. It was bobbing up and down and wobbling back and forth and side to side all the while moving linearly from my right to left. It covered about 5 to 10 degrees of arc. The surface of the craft was like polished black granite. The shape was circular about 30% high as wide and the sides seemed to be made of flat triangular sections that reflected the sun in a clear blue sky as it bobbed and wobbled. After watching for 20 seconds I left to get my binoculars and when I got back it was not visible. There was no audible sound from inside the house during the siting. Thanks to Peter Davenport
Mexico - Spheres Videotaped
TEPOZTLAN, MORELOS -- On Saturday, November 20, Mr. Salvador Guerrero videotaped four translucent spheres in the town of Tepoztlán, state of Morelos. He was in the company of Amado Márquez and Eduardo Ortega engaged in routine skywatching. The forementioned gentlemen are renowned UFO watchers and have provided extraordinary evidence since 1991. At 4:45 p.m., the team became aware of a strange sphere (the size of a ping pong ball) almost at ground level, and they approached it to record evidence, making three videotapes with different cameras.
Later, the object headed for a tree bough and remained surprisingly motionless, then moving up and down with intelligent movement, according to Salvador Guerrero. At one point [the object] was very close to his own body, scant centimeters away, and it was then that he reached out to touch it. Upon contact with his skin, the sphere emitted a gelatinous fluid that caused burning and discomfort to the witness, leaving a red mark on his flesh. A total of four spheres were observed at approximate intervals of 5 minutes between each sighting.  The translucent structure can be clearly seen in the video, as well as how they reflected sunlight, their unusual movement and the confusion of the witnesses, since a group of boy scouts, children and schoolteachers at the Escuela Meztitla field had joined the threesome. Prof. Ana Luisa Cid Fernandez has been in contact with Salvador Guerrero, who still reports discomfort to his hand. He has been advised to see a physician to ameliorate the symptoms and obtain a diagnosis as to what happened to his skin. Guerrero had recorded similar phenomena before, but had never touched it. The video was presented today on the "Los Vigilantes" program. It will also be shown next Thursday on The Omar Chaparro Show and Sunday on "Los Grandes Misterios de Tercer Milenio" ( Thanks to Planeta UFO and Translation (c) 2004. Scott Corrales
Netherlands - Revolving Disk-like object.
DRENTHE -- My Mom, Dad, and brother on November 7, 2004, at 10 PM, saw a disk shaped object in the sky with three rotating rings attached that was not entirely visible . All rings had white dots (lights) attached at the top it as they stayed in the air hovering for about one minute. My father stopped the car along the road, and my Mom and brother stepped out. They watched it for a while, then it disappeared into the clouds and out of visibility. I am 100% certain that they saw -something-. I do not believe in UFO's as in alien vehicles, but I can't think of any reasonable explanation for this. I asked my dad if it looked like it was a laser-show and he denied it for there were no visible beams and it looked solid. My brother estimated the size as about the size of three Ferris-wheels in diameter. My brother drew me a picture, and it shows a number of dots around the outer radius and in the center it also has one. Thanks to Peter Davenport
India - Disc
YAMUNA NAGAR, HARYANA -- On July 31, 2004, five witnesses saw a large UFO in the shape of a disc moving north to south in a fire like color at 11:38 PM. The object was making a buzzing sound. Other facts you may wish to include:  I feel that the UFOs appear in India in the months from July-September, because last year I saw a unidentified object on July 26, 2003, the report of which was submitted on your website. This time it was more clear and prominent in the sky because it was close to me. It was a disc shaped object emitting bright light and buzz sound on intervals. First, it was stationary at one place and suddenly it flew off at a high speed. I was standing at my fuel station along with my five employees. I took the photograph with my NOKIA 6230 Color screen digital mobile phone.
Jupiter - Radio Signals
There are extraterrestrial radio signals reaching Earth on a regular basis. Thanks to a NASA project known as <>Radio JOVE, the pleasure of listening to Jupiter's broadcast of exotic sounds is no longer reserved for professional astronomers. When it comes to sound effects, NASA says woodpeckers and ocean waves can't hold a candle to Jupiter. There are two varieties of Jovian radio bursts: Through the loudspeaker of a shortwave receiver, the so-called "L-burst" sounds like ocean waves crashing on a distant beach. The "L" stands for long. If a recording is slowed down dramatically, the S-burst sound like eerie drifting whistlers. The so-called "S- short burst" produces a staccato of rapid popping sound with a beat that reminds some of woodpeckers. To listen to the sounds of Jupiter, click these spectrum images of 25 MHz radio bursts from Jupiter captured on tape at the University of Florida Radio Observatory.
The Jovian decametric emission was discovered in 1955 by B.F. Burke and K.L. Franklin at the frequency of 22.2 MHz. The emission has an upper cutoff frequency of 39.5 MHz. It can be detected from ground based stations from the upper cutoff frequency of the emission down to the cutoff frequency of the terrestrial ionosphere which is usually around 5 to 10 MHz. The emission occur in episodes called "storms". A storm can last from a few minutes to several hours. Two distinctive types of bursts can be received during a storm. They arrive at a rate of a few to several hundred bursts per second. In a 5 kHz bandwidth receiver they last only a few milliseconds. Thanks to the University of Florida
Editor's Note: Once you get use to listening to Jupiter you might turn your radio dial and listen to other unknown exotic sounds from space. Radio astronomers regularly intercept strange signals from space that could be evidence of intelligent life. Former NASA JPL and Ames scientist Dr. Norman Bergrun claims, a he has located a giant space ship in the rings of Saturn. However, NASA says the shortwave radio signals from Jupiter are not a sign of extraterrestrial intelligence, that ionized gas in the upper atmosphere above Jupiter's magnetic poles behaves like a powerful radio laser or maser. The radio laser gets its power from Jupiter's volcanic moon Io. Tidal forces from Jupiter superheat the interior of the moon Io and make it the most volcanic body in the Solar System. Volcanic materials are thrown far above Io's surface. Much of that enters orbit around Jupiter, forming a huge gaseous donut around the giant planet. With a diameter the size of Io's orbit, the electrically conducting "Io torus," as it's known, spans 525,000 miles. As Io's orbital motion carries it through this magnetized ring of ionized gas, a huge electrical current of two trillion watts flows between Io and Jupiter, creating the biggest DC electrical circuit in the Solar System. Unlike the ordinary kind of DC circuit we know using batteries and wires, plasma physicists believe that current in the Io-Jupiter system is carried by a type of magnetic plasma wave called Alfven waves.
Twenty Years of Looking for Life
When it comes tosearching for life beyond Earth, particularly of the intelligent variety, few organizations can rival the SETI Institute. This month, the Institute celebrates its twentieth birthday. Begun with one small NASA project and a handful of researchers, the SETI Institute is now engaged in building the first massive radio telescope designed from the pedestal up to sort out artificial signals from the cosmos.  But in addition to these searches for clever cosmic company, the Institute also has a wide-ranging astrobiology research program: How did life begin? How could we find it, even if it's not intelligent?
Editor's Note: I encourage SETI to home in on the UFOs that frequently transit their location.
