Finger Lakes UFO Sighting Near Watkins Glen, NY
Date: Summer 1999 - 2000 ?
Dear Brian,
A few years ago I was traveling north on Route 14, having just left Watkins Glen, NY. My niece who was in her late teens at the time was accompanying me in my vehicle. It was a summer day with clear skies. Seneca Lake was to the right side of our vehicle.
I looked to my right and spotted a dark grey colored object in a stationary position above the lake (it was above the lake, though below the hills flanking the east and west sides of the lake's shorelines). It appeared to be shaped quite like a derby hat with a dome shaped top and rim around the bottom. I could not estimate it's exact size because it was ahead and to the right of my point of view. Because Seneca Lake is a large body of water, even at its narrowest point, I could discern the object was quite huge because it loomed large over the water.
When I spotted the object I alerted my niece to look to her 1-2 o'clock view. She spotted the object and I asked her to describe what she saw (I wanted to verify that I was seeing the same thing she was!). She described the object in the same manner as I viewed it. We watched the object for approximately 15 seconds when it simply disappeared. We did not see it fly off .. it just vanished.
Having been a resident of the Finger Lakes region for nearly 38 years I have been intrigued by UFO sightings in the region. I had heard of a large triangular shaped object the flew silently over a field and heard of a supposed UFO landing to the east of Watkins Glen. I always wondered if UFO's were spotted in the region because a facility called the Seneca Army Depot was located on the east side of the lake towards the northern end. Despite the fact that the depot was one of the highest priority targets by the former Soviet Union on the east coast of the US, officials denied that nuclear weapons were stored at the site.
I hope this information is of assistance.
Thank you to the person for this information.
Vining, Minnesota A Huge V Shaped Craft
Date: August 30, 2003
Time: 11:15 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: V shaped.
Full Description of event/sighting: It was labor day week-end 2003. It was Saturday night August 30, 2003. I had come home from work and decided to view Mars, since it was so close to earth at this time. I had the binoculars to my face when all of a sudden there was another light in my view. I took the binoculars away from my eyes and couldn't believe what I saw. This thing was huge ( at least as big as a foot-ball field or possibly a mile long. It did not make any noise that I could hear. It had five large red lights and three white lights on it. The three white lights together where about the size of one red light. The red lights where along the sides of this thing. Evenly spaced apart. They where not flashing at all, just stayed duller then any plane I've ever seen. The way it moved, it just glided off to the east. You could have put many planes in this thing. I read what a man from McGregor had wrote, stating he thought it started near him. I live in Vining, that is half ways between Fergus Falls and Wadena. Also I have found a person in Sisseton S.D. had seen it to. All in a matter of a few minutes or perhaps an hour. Also the three white lights where in the nose of this thing.
Thank you to the witness for their report.
Hidalgo County, Texas V Shaped Trail In The Sky
Date: March 18, 2005
Time: Approx: 5:30 p.m.
This 'object' was taped using a 700x digital zoom camcorder on March 18th, 2005 in Hidalgo County, Texas at around 5:30 PM CST. It flew(?) in a straight line, due north and left no residual trail of any kind. I was able to tape it for about 45 seconds before it was out of range of the camera. The pictures are frames taken from the video.
I'm an US Air Force veteran and was raised a Navy dependent and have seen all kinds of aircraft but nothing that creates a plume quite like this.
I would appreciate any explanation you may be able to provide me with.
Thank you.
Additional Information:
Hello Brian,
Thanks for getting back to me! I've sent you some more frames taken from the video you may post on the site, if you'd like them bigger that is not a problem, I sized these down to 72 dpi but can send them full resolution, 150 dpi, if you'd like. They have not been altered or enhanced in any way other than lowering the resolution.
You can see from the first photo how far away the object is, I was across the street from the house in the foreground. The actual video time was 39 seconds, then it was out of range of the camera so whatever it was, it was moving pretty fast.
After reading your account I re-checked the time index and the time of the sighting was actually 6:38 PM CST, which was a little while before dusk. This object didn't do anything though, it just traveled in a straight line dead north.
From the video it looks like the cloud material is streaming off of something rather than coming from behind, as in a jet engine, and the angle the 'tail' is coming off the object is a few degrees to the west from the line it was traveling. There's an
airport about 14 miles west of here and I see jets leaving contrails all the time but never an object like this.
That's about it for the sighting. As I mentioned I have a great deal of experience around aircraft and have to say I have never seen a forked discharge like this one before and also thought perhaps this was a re-entry of some sort, given the way the
tail is angling off.
Thank you for putting this up on the web site, hopefully some one can identify what this is or has seen this type of 'trail' before. I agree with you, who knows what the military has these days. My father was stationed at Point Magu missile base in
California in the early 70's when they were first testing the F-14. Even during that time folks unfamiliar with the aircraft didn't know what to make of it, especially when they flew at night.
Have a great weekend!

Trail And Warfield, B.C. Bright White Light Followed By Red Balls Of Light
Date: March 27, 2005
Time: Approx: 10:15 p.m.
I took a couple of calls from eyewitnesses who reported seeing some unusual lights in the sky. The lights were first spotted traveling from the northeast and heading to the southwest. The witnesses first saw a bright white light traveling at a low altitude, no sound was heard at all and the light seemed to sway back and forth as it traveled. A short distance behind the bright white light a set of red balls of light were then observed. Six in total and stretched out across the sky, all traveling in the same direction as the white light. Again not sound was heard and the red lights were flying at a very low altitude.
All of the witness said they had seen nothing like this before. Another report of the same kind came in from Calgary, Alberta close to the same date.
Thank you to the witnesses for their report.
Kaufman County, Texas Glowing Ball Of Light
Date: March 27, 2005
Time: Approx: 7:30 p.m.
Hi Brian,
I caught this little jewel at about 7:30 p.m. on 03-27-2005 when I noticed it in the western sky. It was heading nearly east and the speed was extremely slow compared to a small airplane. I would say it wasn't moving but maybe 80 or 90 miles per hour at the most. When I locked on it with my camcorder, my daughter and her friend just pulled in to witness this ball of light. This is the latest of several I've taped this week. I have no idea what they are but they are sure interesting to watch. They come in a lot of different colors also and their speed varies from very fast to extremely slow like this one. All but one I've seen move in a straight line, but I taped one coming from the west and it appeared to turn to the northeast. I'm not sure if I got on it in time to catch the turn or not. Skies were clear and the wind was calm and not much air traffic at all, even toward Dallas. I'm sending you a clip of the light and some grab photos, need any more info, let me know...take care.
Thank you to the witness for sending in the report, footage and photos.

Bloomington, Indiana Large Number Of Helicopters May be Associated To Sightings
Date: End of March 2005
Something happened over here in the last few days Brian, I don't know what. Anyhow, Black Hawks. Many of them flying all around. Five 2 days ago, 4 yesterday, and then today 3 white vans with "US Government" on the plates a 1/4 mile from John's place and mine. Anyhow, we had several sightings over the last couple days. I will be adding them to the PC and sending them out. But look here, this is one out of many seen. The girls voice you hear says it's maybe from Grissom AFB, but Grissom is way to the North. About 100 miles or more, so she's incorrect there. The only bases near by is the Crane Naval Base, about 40 miles away or more as the bird flies, and no runway or tarmac there "supposedly" and Camp Adaberry in or around Columbus Indiana which is further away. If he's just out for a cruise, its expensive cause there was many, and it costs a lot to put these birds in the sky, plus he was running silent, and very low.
Thank you to Mark for the footage and photos.

Lago Vista, Texas Unknown Lights
Date: March 30, 2005
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1-2
Shape of objects: 2 Lights
Full Description of event/sighting: I was driving north east on Lakeline Dr. at around 6:30 p.m. and noticed two lights in the sky. At first I thought it was a plane and since I'm always looking up in the sky when ever I see moving lights I always look for the flashing red light that's on every plane. This time I didn't see any flashing lights. I watched the two lights move slowly across the sky to the right. While trying to drive and keep my eye on the object at the same time was quite difficult. While I was watching the two lights move slowly across the sky they suddenly disappeared. It was not a star because there was still to much sunlight outside and I didn't see any other stars in the sky till about 45 minutes later. The only explanation I could come up with is that its was a UFO.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Phoenix, Arizona Taping Nighttime Orbs
Date: March 30, 2005
Time: 8:26 p.m.
As you know I am still seeing and taping these orbs just about every clear day and night. This is not a plane or meteorite. No flashing lights and no debris tail. It is not a satellite because it's way too big and bright. SO it must be an orb. I saw this one coming in from the S.W. heading East and it was moving very fast around 3Kft.-5Kft.. After taping the object for a minute it just turned off like it was on a dimmer switch. I think that all of these orbs are generally the same size between 3-5ft and have a tremendous amount of energy. Depending on the altitude of these objects probably determines the size of these orbs. It seems like every 10 times I go out and tape these orbs I will catch one this low in the sky. That's why this one looks so big and bright. Also when I tried to zoom in on the orb it looked like a disc on it's side. I think this happens with bright objects out of focus so I do not know if it is a solid object or just an orb. Well it's more than just an orb to me.
I am also sending another clip of 2 bright orbs in one clip
I hope you enjoyed this and I will check in again. Say hello to all and thanks.

North of Toronto And East of Highway #10 Caledon, Ontario Two Dark Objects
Date March 31, 2005
Time: 3:30 p.m.
HBCC UFO Research note: The photos the witness is referring to, or I should say the original pictures were mistakenly deleted from the person's computer. But a small version was sent along to me and I can say that whatever the eyewitness caught on film is really interesting. But due to the size, very hard to tell what it could be. These things happen from time to time, I know I do it myself here.
Hi Brian,
It was afternoon around 3:30 pm. I looked out my east window and said how stormy the clouds looked. I grabbed my camera, went outside and as I looked at the formation of clouds I thought I saw something that appeared to be in the clouds. I couldn't quite make it out so I just started taking random shots across the sky and when I downloaded them this is what I got.
This is the same location that I've seen my star objects last summer, but at night. The nice weather is just around the corner and you can bet I'll be out there with my camera in hand!
Warmest Regards.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Kaufman County, Texas Unknown Filmed At Dark
Date: March 31, 2005
Time: Between 7:00 and 8:00 p.m.
Hi Brian,
I had a strange and kind of scary experience with a flying something on 03-31-2005. I was night skywatching after sundown, probably between 7:00 and 8:00 pm. It was dark but not too dark to see silhouettes of things flying. I was looking toward the southwest and something very large came from the northwest that I thought was a large bird. I first saw it with my side vision, (to my right side) and as I was going to turn to see what it might be, the thing flew upon me so fast that I ducked thinking it was going to hit me. It appeared to be at least as wide as my pickup is long, (20 feet) as it flew over me then my house. I didn't get to see it as it flew overhead, because I ducked, but I did see it fly over the house. It's shape was like a disk looking at it's edge. No lights on it whatsoever and the strange thing about it was it was completely silent.If it was a bird I should have heard a swooshing sound or something as it passed over at that speed, but nothing. I'm sending you a photo of something similar that I had taken earlier in the week to show you what I saw. It's about the same size as when I first saw it, but got much bigger as it got closer. Thought you'd like to hear about this. Take care
Thank you to the witness for sending in the report and photo.

Southern Scarborough Two Round Objects Hovering
Date: April 1, 2005
Time: Approx: 6:20 p.m.
Yesterday, on April 1, 2005 at approx.6:20 p.m. in Southern Scarborough, at Kingston Rd. and Birchmount Rd. at a recreation center parking lot, I observed a strange object over Lake Ontario, about a mile out from shore. The conditions of the sky was also strange in that direction over the lake. The clouds were streamline, like, different lighted veins of cloud running west to east. I noticed this object about 2000 to 3000 feet above the lake in a crack of these clouds. In description of what I saw with the naked eye, it appeared as if there were two round objects hovering vertical in a tight formation and appeared to have a slight reddish light field around both objects. Well, as usual to confirm a sighting, one would need the aid of witnesses.
So I asked two young teenaged females, if they wanted to see a UFO. They said sure, slightly suspicious and of course I pointed it out to them. It took me, about a minute for them to see it. They had connected in seeing the object, for about a minute. Their mother, I would guess, was also asked by their daughters if she could see the objects. As she search the sky in that direction, it vanished. We all went inside the Recreation Centre, and I asked them if they would report this sighting to our local investigator, (name removed). I told them, you don't have to give your name. They agreed, so I went to the office to get a pen and paper to give them the phone number (number removed). When I returned to them, they also vanished. I suppose, I spooked them, as it was their first sighting. Very unfortunate I did not have my camera, that would have given more detail in this story. Please note that this in fact is no April Fools joke. Enjoy!
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Kaufman County, Texas Another Daylight Bright Object - Video Footage
Date: April 2, 2005
Time: Approx: Near dusk.
Hi Brian,
On 04-02-2005, I was watching the sun go down, not seeing much of anything to tape or photograph except the sunset. It was perfectly clear today, not a cloud in the sky, about seventy degrees, winds calm. I took a few photos of the sunset and noticed a small airplane coming over, this is what made me look up and at 12 o'clock high, straight up. I saw the daylight star again. I was sitting in my pickup, so I got my camcorder and got out. I backed up to the pickup to brace myself and started taping. For twenty or thirty seconds it was still, then all of a sudden the object dimmed down quite a bit and starting emitting a visible smoke or vapor from the right top side of it. The vapor rotated counterclockwise as though the object was turning. It continued to emit vapor for a while and then split into two objects or lights, then into three. Then it started moving to the southwest and disappeared. This all started at 6:50 p.m. today and lasted 1 minute and 31 seconds. I'm sending you grab photos and complete clip of this amazing sighting
Thank you to the witness for sending in the report, footage and photos.

Manifestation Of Strange Dreams And Memories
Dear Mr. Vike,
I am a student from Europe and I in recent times the manifestation of strange dreams and memories (related with real marks/scars on my skin) is a disturbing factor in my life.
Yes, I filed a sighting report on your site several months ago, so my email address/pseudonym might be already known to you. This is -more or less- just a coincidence and it is not my intention to "annoy Mr. Vike with fictious fake reports for fun" or something.
The rare sightings I had from time to time are not directly related to what is told below, but by hook or by crook this is my complete story.
I am 20 years old and live in a town in the vicinity of Vienna. I have not always lived here; the first three years of my live I lived in a village near Salzburg.
I can remember some dominant nightmares I had in this time which had occurred for years in cluster-like patterns and vanished when I was at the age of 9.
I didn't remember these things until I had a strange experience a few months ago; this should be the beginning of a new, much more frightening "cluster" of dreams.
1. - It must have been around the 20th of August 2004. I remember that I had a beautiful dream, and suddenly I felt terrible fear without a dream-related stimulus. I realized that I was dreaming and tried to wake up panically. I succeeded and opened my eyes. I was laying in my bed and it was dark as it was supposed to be.. and there was a strange, misty shadow in front of my bed (where my feet are) with the shape of a child, approximately 1m in height.. but the "head" was deformed, it looked "squished". In panic I tried to find the switch of my lamp and turned it on.
Suddenly I woke up again and felt relieved because the nightmare episode was just a dream with a false awakening, but after a few seconds I noticed that the lamp was already switched on when I had opened my eyes.
2. - Three or four weeks later I woke up one night lying on my back with my arms crossed on my breast like an Egyptian mummy. The cover was well-placed under the arms and in-knitted under my back (please excuse my poor English, I am not sure if this word does exist. This had happened several times before but I did not dedicate much attention to it.
3. - The second significant dream occurred in autumn 2004 when I was visiting my sister in Spain.
I was standing in the midst of a huge meadow and a few dozen meters beside me there was a wooden hut. Some guys were standing beside that hut and when I looked at the sky I noticed a disk-shaped spinning thing. again I felt uprising panic and tried to shout something to the people but they seemed not to hear me. At the second glance the disk was bigger and nearer than before and hovered just in front of me. The next thing I remember is that I was "sucked" through a very small hole in the floor of a bright room with orange/metallic walls. There were two beings, a man and a woman; they looked like a couple. I knew that I had to follow them as they lead me into a big room with a table, like a conference room. We sat down and the woman said something, I think she tried to make me think that I am safe.. I didn't understand what she said but I simply knew what she meant. she tried to charm me like a snake but I knew that this scenario was just a friendly facade to trick my mind. As I stood up and fled the room they didn't follow me and I remember running down some colorful corridors back to the first room. The hole was still there but I couldn't get through this time. Now there was a chair just beside the hole and a small obese man came into the room. He said that he wanted to take a blood sample before my departure.
I sat on the chair and he took a driller-like tool with a silver cord attached to it. Then he fixed my left arm and I felt a sharp pain when the tip of the apparatus penetrated my skin (below my elbow).
(end of dream sequence)
Three days later I was smoking a cigarette in my sister's living room when my bored mind recalled that dream. Just for fun and without any serious expectations I looked at my arm where the man drilled a hole into my vein. Surprisingly there was a small, round scar. It didn't look new, I think this is an old scar I hadn't noticed before. (The photos are not the best ones and they do not show that the scar is perfectly circle shaped) Photos below:
4. - After some months without such dreams there was another major event in November 2004.
In this dream I was in France with a "dream-girlfriend" . It was a sunny day and we decided to walk down a romantic path through a small park with high trees. Suddenly there was a whistling noise above us and I saw a very low-flying small plane (the size of a business jet) with a strange pink texture. There was smoke coming out of it's engines and it finally crashed into the tree-line at the left side of the path. There was fire and a crowd of vintage-looking firemen and ordinary people was running around the scene. Because of my short career as a red-cross-medic (in real life) I knew that I had to approach the vessel and apply first aid if needed. But now the plane looked much smaller, just like a pod or something. The remnants of the pilot rested on the ground beside the burning wreckage and everything was spattered with blood. I noticed a small sign beside the road which said "Rhone Alley, Burgundy".
Then the dream faded away and another, much more explicit scene evolved:
I was running through the streets of my hometown at night and I was totally naked. I wanted to get home in order to get some clothes when I realized the screams of hundreds of people far away. In the night sky above the blocks of my neighborhood the was a huge cluster of yellowish lights that looked like searchlights in the thick mist above the town. I was afraid that these "things" would notice my presence before I could reach my house which was situated just a few hundred meters away.
When I opened the door I saw that one of the two light clusters was approaching my position. I ran up the stairs and when I reached my flat, bright yellow light came through the windows and a strong wind emerged. The last thing before I woke up was a shadow of a person entering my living room.
5. - Another dream: (early Jan 2005)
I was sitting in my dream living room and doing something I didn't want the neighbors to see. When I went to the window to have a brief look if there is someone watching me from opposite the house I noticed nothing unusual, but after turning around to sit down again my consciousness noticed that there had been something above the roof (of my neighbor's house) that wasn't supposed to be there, a subtle rectangular solid, 90 degree-bent shape of blackness against the clear night sky. At the second glance I saw it clearly and its weird distorted form really looked like nothing I had ever seen before. There was even moonlight reflecting on one of its edges. Here is a (bad) drawing of what I saw: Below.
The rest of the story is as usual.. the sudden uprising of extreme panic, "knowing" that something had just entered my apartment and the certainty that something painful is going to happen.
6. - As it might already sound quite ridiculous, there was another "cliché"-event (the last one so far):
Late Jan 2005
The whole thing was a false awakening (again...)
When I opened my eyes after awakening from a nightmare (this was in a 4-week period when I had these dreams EVERY night, very intense and horrific) I saw a very tall person entering my bedroom through the door but I wasn't afraid.. it had extremely thin limbs and was about 3-4 meters high, the thing literally had to bend down to avoid touching the ceiling. As it turned into my direction and made towards my bed I saw that it had lizard-like skin and strange unshapely eyes. It said something like "be calm" and then I woke up finally (again).
I hope I didn't waste your time. As a man of great experience you might find some information useful or interesting; the only intention of this mail is to make someone know of this agony I have to cope with. I would be grateful if you could just give me an email-address or something of a person who is familiar with people who experience similar things, because I do not have the possibility to consult a Hypnotherpapist and I'm a bit hesitant with talking to a psychologist, the whole story is just too weird.
I would prefer anonymity concerning my email address and my name (if visible in the mail's header) in the case of public view, please.
Thank you very much for the patience,
Yours sincerely.
