 New York City/Brooklyn, New York A Dark Grey Cylinder UFO
Date:  August, 1965
Time:  Approx: 8:30 p.m.
Every now and then, my mother and I would take our dog on his night walk to the Parade Ground, a flat park of baseball and football fields. We went there because at the time it was being renovated, and the fields were being partitioned and fenced. This gave us some confidence to allow the dog off the leash to run free for a change.
The Parade Ground is just across Parkside Avenue from Prospect Park. It is August, 1965. I am ten years old.
The dog was having a good run, and once we saw that he wasn't about to run off completely, we relaxed and gazed upwards to view the night sky, trying to find various constellations.
In those days, the street lights in Brooklyn emitted a white light, and not the beige-looking type now in use. If you went to a park, you could get a decent view of the stars, but of course not anywhere near the view if you were upstate in deep woods.
Suddenly, as I looked to the left of me, I saw what I first mentally equated as a submarine perhaps two story's off the ground higher than the six story buildings beneath it.
"Hey Mom, do you see what I see?" She did.
Here comes this thing, slow and steady and silent. It is huge. It is dark grey - not "battleship grey," but as grey as can be before you rule it black. There is no shine to it.
The front of it was round; I'd seen pictures of submarines, and that is what came to mind. It is actually shaped more like a very long medicine capsule.
As it proceeded to float past us, we observed its right side. It is solid. It is a perfect and very long dark grey cylinder, and it just keeps coming very slowly and steadily.
Obviously, we can't see the top of it, but so far, we see that even though it is almost black, we sense a light behind the darkness. This does not make sense, as my mother and I later reckoned. The best I can come up with is that my eyes saw
dark grey, but my mind knew the cylinder was emitting light. Dark light!
This was no blimp. No lights. No sound. No windows. No gondola beneath. No visible markings. No nothing! It is just a cylinder 300 feet longer than the Intrepid aircraft carrier now docked in the Hudson River going by!
This thing was so huge, that even from the height above me, (200 Feet?) it was clearly visible; visible enough to see even the slightest imperfection clearly, if it had any.
At the same time, we are not in any panic. We are unusually serene. As if it's no big deal somehow. Maybe we were in a stupor beyond awe.
Finally, the end of the ship passes. I ran to see the back of it. I see it is as round as the front with an opening in the center. To this day, I'm not sure if it was square or arch-like. I am convinced that at least the bottom of the opening in the back of it was flat, so it was square or arched. I remember thinking that 3 buses could easily drive inside at the same time. On the other hand, I've seen jets low to the ground on approach to JFK Airport, and thought that "my" cylinder was at least 3 times wider at the same height.
This is the only time I experience apprehension. I worry for a moment that whoever is flying this cylinder might see me.
I ran to where I could see the other side of the cylinder. It is exactly as perfect and unremarkable as the other side and the bottom.
I have been struggling with my memories for years as to whether there was a single tiny light, blue or red atop the opening
in the back. I add this item, but I am not sure. Inside the opening it is absolutely pitch black.
The cylinder was in the order of 1200 feet long. I did not know this at the time. When I saw the cylinder completely, it was "crossing" Stratford Road, and the back of it was at Buckinham Road. The distance between these streets on Caton Avenue
according to street maps is about 1200 feet.
I rejoined my mother in the original field, and we watched this thing float over the Prospect Park police station, heading west
until it faded from sight about half a mile west of the Parade Ground. No newspaper, radio, or TV station mentioned it. For
that matter, we didn't even tell my father!
As I first accessed the Internet, I ran a search for "cylinder UFO," and plenty of links came up. Even pictures! I wasn't too surprised, because I know damn well what I saw was real, and other people must have seen something as well.
I told some close friends. They gave me the jaundiced eye. I could hardly blame them. I guess its just one of those things one must see to believe.
Thank you to the witness for the excellent and interesting report.
Goose Air Base, Labrador UFO Follows KC-135 Aircraft While Landing
Date:  Late September 1967
Time:  N/A
Message: In 1967-68 I was stationed at Goose Air Base, Labrador.  I worked in Base Headquarters. During the lunch hour, I didn't eat, because I was trying to lost some weight. I sat in the Base Commander's office to answer the phone while he and his Secretary went to lunch. I always read through the "Commander's Read File" while I was there.
In late September 1967, a KC-135 was landing, and a UFO was picked up by radar, following the aircraft.  It went behind the aircraft as it touched down, then went over the top of the aircraft until it turned off the active runway.  Then, it stopped dead still and went straight up at an estimated speed of 17,000 MPH.  It was seen as a bright light by men in the tower, and was on the radar of the Radar Station on top of a mountain near the base. 
I never heard or read any other reports of this incident.
Thank you to the retired serviceman for this very interesting and important information. I am looking into this report.
Wales, UK Star-Like Object Reappears & Started Zig Zagging
Date:  Summer 1991
Time:  Approx: 11.30 p.m.
Location of Sighting: To the North.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Star shape, well looked like a star.
Full Description of event/sighting: Hello, reading some of your report's and noticed that two report's were similar to what I saw back in the summer of 1991. The report's were under the heading's,  Paradise, California and Barrie, Ontario.  Well this is what I saw back then,  I went out to my back garden to lock up for the night, it was a lovely night with nearly a full moon, what caught my eye were these clouds, lit up by the moon it was a lovely sight then I noticed this moving star, it was traveling toward the cloud then disappeared above it, so  I stood there looking at the cloud and waiting for the star to reappear on the other side. But no, this star reappeared the same place as it entered, I had this funny feeling that this thing had seen me, then all of a sudden it started zig zagging for about 30 seconds then disappear.  Well that's my sighting and it will be with me forever.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Roosevelt Lake, Arizona Bigfoot Sighting
Date:  January 2001
Time:  Between 4:00 and 5:00 a.m.
Message: This message is to Brian Vike in response to sightings of BigFoot. And to contribute somehow to the on going research by Robert. W. Morgan.
In 2001 January, my husband and a fishing buddy were fishing in the early morning about between 4 and five am up at Roosevelt Lake which borders the Mogollon Rim. His buddy spotted it first and motioned to my husband to look . There could be no doubt to what they saw. My husband said a man about 9 feet tall and covered with dark brown hair was walking less than half a mile away perhaps 100 yards the length of a foot ball field or less above them on the ridge. He said the creature was walking and taking  huge strides. what was amazing was the Bigfoot for there was no question here, was able to cover the entire ridge in less then five minutes. also to note, there was no way for a human being to get up there as there is no ingress or egress on that ridge. Since the creature or being took huge strides unlike a human swinging it's arms and was covered in dark brown hair and was high up on this mountain ridge, they had to conclude it could not be a man . His buddy doesn't want to acknowledge it, but my husband knows beyond a shadow of a doubt the early morning strider was indeed Bigfoot. We just listened to a prior broadcast with Robert W. Morgan on Art Bell from 2001, and on that show Mr. Morgon validates that Bigfoot do reside around the Mogollon Rim in that very area where my husband was. so that really validates it for us.
Thank you very much to the people for this interesting report.
Harris County, Texas Lights In A Triangle Formation
Date:  March 11, 2005
Time:  Daylight
Message: Hi Brian, I am a big fan of your website. I check it daily for new pictures. In doing this I noticed that a lot of people capture UFOs on film that they did not see until they developed or downloaded the pictures. So I decided to try an experiment. I went out into my backyard and took tons of pictures of the sky from all angles and lighting situations (I have done this many times since.) Then I would examine the pictures on my computer and zoom in on each area of sky to see if I could see anything unusual. It paid off! I have one picture out of hundreds that definitely shows something interesting. I saw something similar to it on Budd Hopkins site (or a link from his site) the other day. It's 3 tiny lights in a triangle formation. You cannot see it in the original picture without zooming in on it. Also, there appears to be a small blue dot below the three lights. I thought maybe the blue dot was something on the lens but it was not on any of the other pictures. The picture was taken with a Kodak EasyShare DX4530 digital camera. I would like to send you the picture but I can't figure out how to send an attachment on this form. If you're interested let me know.
Hi Brian,
Here is the picture I told you about.  I am sending the original, one that's slightly enlarged, and then the original with an enlarged inset of the lights. I am interested in hearing what you think, particularly about the blue dot below the lights.  In the original, you really can't see anything without zooming in but I thought I would send it anyway.
Thank you to the person for sending along the report and photos.
Louisville, Kentucky Two Bright Orange Lights
Date:  January 10, 2006
Time:  Approx: 2:00 a.m.
Message: Hello, my name is (name removed). I live in Louisville, Kentucky, in the USA. I was getting out of my car one early morning, around 2:00 am and I noticed two bright orange dots that appeared the size of a star, but I had never seen stars that were like this orange, let alone just one. One looked higher than the other. I stood outside looking straight at those two bright orange dots for about 5-7 minutes and I started to see that the lower orange dot started moving up a little and to the right, then it went back to the left and went down a bit after that. Eventually, the bottom orange dot went completely out of sight, but the top orange dot stayed in the same place the entire time.
Thank you to the witness for their report.
San Jose City - Many Eyewitnesses To UFO Sighting
Date:  January 13, 2006
Message: Dear Sir
Four days ago and today again there were some strange lights, like stars in the middle of the sky, about 13H00 local time this Friday. TV and thousands of people looked at them. Some say they had movement. I saw the lights but didn't see any movement. No official explanation in the media.
Additional Information:
Brian, Yesterday night some government official said the so called UFO, seen by thousands over San Jose City about 13H00 Friday 13, was in fact some meteorological stuff, a balloon or so. The same explanation was given for similar lights seen five days ago in the same area of Costa Rica.
The TV journalists remembered that, anyway, many UFO cases were reported in the last years here. Maybe you know about the big UFO in Coter lake, north of CR, whose picture was taken without realizing - a big disc with half of it under water - by a plane making photos for mapping the country. I am not expert in this things, but if you want I will look for some body to inform you properly about Costarican UFOs.
By the way, mother and a sister saw, and another person of the town also saw the two egg shaped metallic looking objects about 16H30 local time, this took place some 20 years ago in Quesada, 100 km north of San Jose. Still under the light of the sun, things were playing, jumping and moving, over a grass camp for cows, until they flew up and away. In the very same area, about 55 years ago some children said they had seen the "Virgin Mary", surrounded by light and about 30 years ago a farmer called the Red Cross and firemen because "a plane in flames" had crashed in his farm. Not a single hair of Virgin Mary or piece of the plane were found never.
A few kilometers from this place some friends of mine told me the dogs barked a lot one night. Next day they went to the cows and found a circle about 10 meters of grass burned. No explanation.
This place is not far from Arenal volcano, which exploded in 1968 after centuries of sleeping. Also there, since months before de huge explosion, neighbors of La Fortuna town saw many strange lights moving over the cone shaped volcano.
Thank you to the person for this information.

Swansea, South Wales Looked Like Stars But Spun Around
Date:  January 14, 2006
Time:  7:10 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 3
Shape of objects: Looked like stars but spun around.
Full Description of event/sighting: I was looking up at the sky and noticed a number of stars twinkling. I noticed one star flashing, rather than twinkling. As I focused on this 'star', I noticed 2 others both flashing. All 3 stars continued to flash. The object lowest in the sky moved away, the 2nd one moved quickly after it, whereas the 3rd (which was highest in the sky) continued to flash. I got the feeling that this had noticed me watching it. It began spinning and emanating a reddish/pinkish light. The other two became visible (behind a house), and all 3 objects were spinning simultaneously. Then this 3rd object moved quickly after the other 2 and all 3 disappeared.
I have never ever seen anything like this before!
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Oshawa, Over Lake Ontario More White Objects Witnessed
Date:  January 15, 2006
Time:  Approx: 10:45 a.m.
Hi Brian, I have had numerous sightings of these unknown white objects. Today on Sunday, January 15, 2006 at about 10:45 am at home in Oshawa, over Lake Ontario. I again witnessed these high flying white objects moving in different directions. The altitude at less,1000-2000 feet, at about half a mile to maybe a couple of miles. So to prove that what I see is real, took some pictures. You be the judge to view, of what's flying over our skies. One thing to note, the morning here is near zero degrees-F.
Thank you to the witness for the report and photos.
Bo'ness, West Lothian, Scotland Bright Flickering Orange Colored Light
Date:  January 15, 2006
Time:  Approx: 9:30 p.m.
Message: I live in Bo'ness, a small town in West Lothian, Scotland. My house stands in an elevated position overlooking, northwards, the beginning of the estuary of the river Forth, which at this point, is about 4 miles wide.    
Yesterday evening at about 9.30 pm my wife and I noticed a bright flickering orange colored light in the sky. (we do not close the curtains). It seemed as if something was ablaze but not exactly similar to a fire. At fist I thought of a hot air balloon but the flame (if that's what is was) was not concentrated upwards. It appeared to be about 400 yards away (but that's a guess). I went out into the garden. There was no noise, no engine sounds. It seemed to be falling in an uncontrolled fashion but then moved upward, again, unevenly. It did this several times but then I noticed it was rapidly moving northwards away from us. across the river, and over the county of Fife. As it was moving directly away, it was not possible to get any real idea of speed, only due to the diminishing size did I assume if was moving away. It rapidly disappeared. The sky was black with a light cloud cover. There were no light on the river, no ships. We had a good clear uninterrupted view.    
Anyone else in West Lothian or Fife see this ? Any guesses as to what it might have been ?
Thank you to the witness for their report.
Country Harbour, Nova Scotia Object Bigger Then A House
Date:  January 15, 2006
Time:  Approx: 1:00 a.m.
Message: I am from Country Harbour Nova Scotia, Canada. This past weekend, Sunday January 15, 2006 at around 1:00am a friend of mine and his grand parents saw an object bigger then a house on a blueberry hill close to their house. My friend says the object was the most beautiful thing you could ever see. I believe he said it was an orange light. We know it was not the moon because the weather was rainy. The reason they got to see it was that his grandmother screamed while the guys were sleeping and her scream woke them up. They thought something happened to the grandmother. By the time they went to get binoculars the object was gone. There is also a girl I know who said she has pictures of what she seen as well. I don't know if it was in the same spot or not or the same day but I will find out and be sure to tell you about it.
Thank you to the person for relating this report.
Country Harbour, Nova Scotia A Huge Golden Shiny Object
Date:  January 15, 2006
Time:  Approx: 1:00 a.m.
Hello. My friend told me that I could send a report to you about what I saw this Sunday. Sorry if my grammar is bad I don't usually type perfectly. Anyway, my name is (removed), I live in Nova Scotia. I was staying at my grandmothers for the night which is right across the road from my house and they went to bed about 12:00 am and I stayed up to watch TV for a little
while until about 12:30. About 1:00 in the morning my grandmother was in her room with her door shut and I heard " oh my god (name removed) (who is my grandfather) she said, "look at the moon it is so big"
I went in to see what was so interesting and there on the hill behind their house was this huge golden shiny and absolutely beautiful round object about the size of an air balloon. We quickly realized it wasn't the moon because the moon wasn't out,
or something. I really wasn't paying attention. Anyway, it was a round shape and we could see the bottom of it because it was covered by the hill. You wouldn't believe how shiny and golden this was. We live out in the middle of nowhere so we knew it wasn't any man made object. We all went scrambling into the kitchen, looking for the binoculars but didn't find them, so we went back to the room and it was gone. Nothing was there just the hill. The object made no sound at all ,very quiet.
Also when my grandfather was out back of his house back in 1988 he saw a strange red object not much bigger than a beach ball hovering above him and it made no sound at all either. He ran back to the house not knowing what it was.
He was panicked so he didn't want to stick around. Also that very night in 1988 someone filed a report in the news paper of the exact same red object that made no sound, it was spotted on the highway and my grandparents never mentioned it to anybody!
Well thank you for letting me tell somebody who is interested! I also love your website! Thank you and take care!

Aliso Viejo, California Bright Blue Lights
Date:  January 15, 2006
Time:  Approx: 8:00 p.m.
Hi, I don't know how to say this exactly but I was also in Aliso Viejo (live in San Clemente) at the movies on Sunday and when the movie ended I waited outside and I witnessed almost exactly what you witnessed. I am amazed to see that more people have also seen them. But I must tell you if your account is correct, there are actually 4 or more objects not just 1. After the movie I witnessed 2 objects at around 8:00 and they were bright blue lights sometimes it moved slow and then went back and forth I also saw an actual air plane flying at the same time much farther away and higher. I knew they weren't connected but this gave me the chance to compare the two. I knew that this must be a "UFO" and not part of military because no government in their right mind would test fly such technology around civilians. But anyway the UFO seemed to move on its side and then 3 bright blue lights in a triangular shape was exposed then it turned on its side again and it seemed like a circle of small bright blue lights. I saw about 3 UFO's that night (Sunday) but if you wish to hear more detail or give any comments just respond back to me.
Thank you to the witness for their report.

Ithaca, New York Possibly Triangular Shaped Craft
Date:  January 16, 2006
Time:  10:45 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Possibly Triangular Shaped.
Full Description of event/sighting: Hello Brian, Last night just as I was turning out the lights and heading for bed. A very large glimmering object caught my eye to my right just outside my second story picture window facing west. I moved toward the window to get a closer look through the bare tree limbs to see a strobing group of lights just above the hills. What was unusual about this group of lights was that the colors were a pale yellow, stationary. and very low above the hills in front of me. I quickly retrieved my Olympus C-740 Zoom digital camera from my office. The object was still not moving when I returned and seemed to be of incredible size, like two 747 jets placed together nose to tail. How was it possible that an object this large could stay in the sky, was my first thought. I placed the lens right up against the glass so as not to get any reflection and took three shots. That is when the object began to move very slowly towards the North heading over Cuyuga Lake.
Then what happened next was way out of the ordinary for me. I was so excited to be having this experience but had the overwhelming desire to go to bed, NOW.  I did not even brush my teeth which I have done religiously for over 45 years. The next morning the camera was sitting on the entertainment console so I immediately took it into my office to download whatever I had captured. Out of the three pictures, the first one showed all the lights. The other two were totally dark.
I would really like to know if there were any other witnesses who may read your site. This is not my first encounter with strange objects in the sky. Just two years ago in Orlando, Florida, I was walking my dog at 5:15am and looked up at the sky as I always do when he is doing his business. It was if the sky above me was moving along with a grouping of stars. No, these were not stars, they were dimly glowing pale yellow lights clustered underneath a black boomerang shaped form which I could barley make out. The grouping of lights which were so numerous I could begin to count them, Moved slowly towards the south without making a sound. I was awestruck. The size was unbelievable. I would describe it as the size of a football stadium floating above me about five hundred feet. No one else was outside in my apartment complex at this hour so there were no other witnesses to my knowledge. I could not wait to get to work to tell my coworkers what I had seen. I will provide the photo from last nights event at your request. Many Thanks for a great website Brian.

Calgary, Alberta Object Moving In A Circular Motion
Date:  January 17, 2006
Time:  Approx: 2:00 a.m.
Message: I saw a bright steady light flying across my window just now, bright steady white light. It appeared in the middle of the sky and then it moved really fast, with no trail leaving behind this light. It might have been a comet but, I believe that comets leave trail. Then 10 something seconds later, I sighted another similar light appeared on the other side, popped up in the middle of the sky again. It was moving in a circular motion, then it speed up and disappeared in the middle of the sky again. I was wearing a headphone at the time it happened, my roommate next door claimed that he heard a really loud air craft noise coming from outside the same time that I sighted this strange bright lights. It's now 2:17am, January 17, 2006. This happened about 15 - 20 minutes ago. I don't know if it was a comet or something else. Please inform me if you know the answer to this. Thank you.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Ottawa, Ontario Large Clusters Of Objects
Date:  January 17, 2006
Time:  6:20 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 10-12
Shape of objects: Round.
Full Description of event/sighting: Hi, I was walking down home yesterday evening after work. I was almost at home in the Sandy Hill neighborhood and I was starring at some big apartment towers facing the Ottawa river when I noticed 2 clusters of fast moving lights passing right over those towers. It was around 18h15 and 18h20. I saw 2 distinctive clusters of 5 to 6 white objects and moving extremely fast from North West to South East. I approximate their altitude between 5000 and 1000 feet. Unfortunately I couldn't noticed any sounds as I was listening to my MP3 Player. As I said the speed of those 2 clusters was very fast and the formations where out of sight between 4-6 seconds.
I don't know what it was and I talked about my sighting to my girlfriend when I came home. I doubt it was a military plane formation. We don't even have 12 CF-18 fighters in Ontario. I hope somebody else saw those lights over Ottawa yesterday evening. All I have to say is it was really impressive and I'm a little bit shocked by what I saw.
You can contact my via e-mail for more information and I can send you a drawing of the sighting if you want to.
Thank you to the witness for this report.
Eyewitness UFO Audio Accounts On CD (Free Upcoming Audio Reports For Buyers)
I will be doing more interviews this week for the CD. (78 Eyewitness UFO Audio reports on CD)
Purchase The CD, & All Upcoming Eyewitness Audio Reports For Free !
HBCC UFO Research Note: As many of you know I had to remove the large number of eyewitness audio reports from the site due to them taking up a huge amount of bandwidth as the mp3 audio clips were a big success. In other words thousands upon thousands of people who came to the website really enjoyed listening in to the eyewitnesses tell in their words about what they saw, and what took place.
I did not want to remove them, but as I mentioned, it was going to run the costs up for the site. So I created  a CD with all the audio clips on it and so far this has been a big hit with many. I decided that if anyone purchases the CD, all upcoming eyewitness audio reports will be given to the buyer free. What I will do, is  upload any and all new audio interviews to the website, and then email out a link to everyone who has bought the CD, and from that link they will be able to download the new eyewitness accounts at no cost to them. This way no one will miss anything and there are some amazing reports coming up. Purchase details can be found here:
The below link will take you to how to order your own CD, entitled The Vike Report (Audio Clips Collection).
Thank you and take care.
