UFOs are showing interest in China's space launch, in Maine, Alabama, Indiana, Illinois, Nova Scotia, Canada, the Netherlands, and Greece. We also discuss abductions.
SACO -- On December 29, 2000, I was driving into Saco at 10:10 PM when I noticed a very bright white light. The craft had seven lights on its under side and a big one in the front. The witness stated, "There was no tail on the triangle shaped craft!" He drove east chasing the object and lost it in the trees, but picked it up at Route 1 moving very very slow. He pulled into the Shop N' Save parking lot and watched the craft fly over. He said, "It was three times the size of any air craft I had seen before. It had a huge white light in the front, one large square in the bottom center, and three smaller squares on each wing, with a red light on each wing tip. Have I been witness to a top secret craft or a space ship?" he said.
NORTH WHITEFIELD -- Another witness nearby writes, "My sightings have been numerous the past six years but this is the first time I have seen them early enough in the evening to get my husband and my son to look also. Six years ago, I woke at 3:15 AM, and looked east out the window and saw a twinkling star in the distance but I noticed that it had colored lights and it was moving incredibly fast. I thought I was seeing things. It went zipping around the sky. A few months later, I was cleaning out a mobile home that belonged to an elderly couple and found a VERY CLEAR picture from 1967 of a "flying saucer" over our same treetops. I showed it to my husband and said I had seen one in the night some months ago. I live in Maine and about 30 miles from Brunswick Navel Air Station so I've always hoped what I'm seeing is just some kind of military secret. This past summer, I saw a triangular craft with four very large "balls" of light on it appear briefly just below a cloud and then disappear back into it. I have seen the "craft" I saw tonight on many occasions.
My most recent sighting was at 7:00 PM, on January 1, 2001. I saw colored lights and asked my husband where his binoculars were? He said, "Why do you want them?" I said, "I'm going to look at a UFO that has been bugging me for years. I wish I had a telescope because that thing sat there for 3 1/2 hours without moving much. It moved three times when an airplane entered the airway. Each time, the craft blinked red and green lights more frequently like normal plane's lights when another airplane would fly near. It would move horizontally and a bit vertically. When the airplane passed, it stopped and remained stationery until the next plane came along. About 75 minutes after I spotted this first craft, a second one appeared from the north. About that time, I told my husband there were two of them out there now. He started to take me serious and went out with the binoculars to look and agrees that he's never seen anything like it. About an hour later, two more showed up.

MUFON Headquarters reports that a witness who is a Police Officer in Alabama writes, "I am a private pilot and I was an air traffic controller with the FAA. A few months ago I was on patrol at 02:30 AM and observed an object with three lights, amber in color on the left side, middle and right side of the vehicle. I went to my patrol car, drove to the middle of the school parking lot and watched. The vehicle traveled to the southeast and there was never was any sound. The three lights stayed "pointed" in my direction. There were no anti-collision lights on this vehicle, just the three amber colored lights. I got a pair of 10x50 binoculars and could see the vehicle was a dark color with squared "windows." My police radio never stopped working nor did my patrol car shut off. At a point one to two miles to my southeast the vehicle turned directly north without making a slow banking turn. It turned from a heading of 120 degrees to a heading of 360 degrees in an instant! As I continued to observe, I could make out that it was triangular in shape and 300 foot in length, using the high school football field as a size comparison. As the vehicle turned north the three amber colored light turned again and faced me directly. Since the moon was not out I was about to observe star constellations and the North star. I reached into my patrol car and got my maglite flashlight. I shined 30,000 candlepower at the vehicle. Though this may have possibly been considered a stupid thing to do, being a cop, I am very curious. Nothing happened. The vehicle continued northbound and disappeared. We have Columbus Air Force Base and Meridian Naval Air Station near us. When my Chief relieved me at 6:00 AM, I told him what I had seen. He asked, "What time?" and when I told him he told me to forget it! Thanks to and Alan
BLOOMINGTON -- Joseph Trainor reports that on Friday, January 5, 2001, eyewitness G.E.D. was driving east on Indiana Highway 45 between New Unionville and Bloomington, he reported, "I saw a very Unusual aircraft on my way home from work. I saw a bright yellow light with a white light, maybe not as bright, hovering in the sky. There were two red lights on top, none on the belly. So I rounded a bend and I saw that the craft was about 50 feet above treetop (level), crossing the road from right to left (north). directly overhead." "I pulled off to watch and noticed that other vehicles behind me had also done the same. There was no noise. I rolled down my window to listen but there was no sound. As the craft passed over my car, I got a quick look at it against the night sky. It was triangle-shaped with a white light at each of the three wing tips (corners) and appeared to be black in color. A mile or so down the road, the snow looked (as if it had been) blown across the road like drifting. The rest of the road was clear. I thought it was a helicopter at first until I saw the thing. It was not like anything I had ever seen." Bloomington is approximately 68 miles south of Indianapolis. Thanks to Steve Wilson Sr. and UFO Roundup Volume 6, #2 January 11, 2001 Editor: Joseph Trainor
CHICAGO -- New Year's Eve at 11:45 PM I was watching TV with my wife and friends when our neighbor came over asking, "If I saw the alien spacecraft?" I said no but went outside with our friends. After about 20 minutes I saw two sets of lights going in circles for about 30 seconds. Then one of the lights got brighter and a ray of light flashed toward the ground. This was about half a mile away, when I saw something go up the ray then it disappeared. I called the cops and they told me that other people had been filing a report saying they had seen aircraft in the sky.
ROCKFORD -- Robert R. Clark It has been almost a year and the flying sun colored objects have returned over Northern Illinois. I didn't personally see them this time but all three affiliated TV stations had videos of them that were broadcast. They had the usual experts trying to explain them away. We all know that we have been visited for many years by these friendly visitors. I say that they are friendly because if they weren't they could have did us in long before now. Their appearance was on January 11, 2001, about nine o'clock in the evening. They lingered around for quite some time before they disappeared. Sincerely, Author of "How The Heptans Colonized Earth" WTVO television in Rockford reports video of lights changing position in the sky over the city. Here are pictures of the lights seen over Rockford. The lights changed position. The station showed a video on Thursday at 5, 6, and 10 PM. The Rockford Register Star Newspaper also carried an article claiming that scores of people saw the lights. The Rockford police received eight calls from citizens regarding the moving lights. The video and photos suggest that UFOs were operating over the area. Some suggested the lights were caused by pranksters. Others claimed they moved to fast in different directions to be lighted balloons are similar pranks. Thanks to Todd Livengood and Joe Stefula. The photos can be seen at
HAVRE -- The witness states, "On December 28, 2000, my daughter woke me up at 4:00 AM, and after I got her settled in to bed, and saw a bright light high in the sky." It was not a star, as it would get brighter, than lighter. I watched for maybe two minutes, and it blinked out." There were no clouds, but it seemed to have a haze around it. Then tonight, I was letting my cat out at about 5:50 PM, and there was a very bright light in the sky again. I grabbed my camera and took a picture, and grabbed my binoculars. It looked like a sideways white neon light, with a blue spike-like thing on top. Almost like a toy top. It was positioned almost sideways. I am still shaking! I have my parents video camera from filming Christmas stuff, and as soon as I went in the bedroom to grab it, it was gone when I came back. Dogs in the neighborhood were barking, but my own, wasn't.

CARSON -- I was on my way to the store on December 29, 2000, 6:20 PM and had made a right hand turn onto 213th Street when I noticed a bright red light, visible through the windshield of my car. It appeared to be disc or perfectly round in shape and was sharply defined. It caught my attention because it was not the usual red color I have seen on aircraft. I live not far from the sheriff station and helicopters are based there. The color appeared as a bright crimson red but did not have a glow to it. As I continued west I had to move up closer to the windshield and peer up as the object seemed to be moving in an easterly direction and when overhead it disappeared. It was like a disappearing cone. Thanks to NUFORC,
NEW GLASGOW -- While driving to an outside festival, "River front Days," in August 2000, around 10:00 PM, I watched as a large, triangular shaped object floated at a steady slow speed over my truck. My window was down as the night was muggy, but I heard no sound from the object, which seemed to be flying rather low, similar to the height used by small aircraft landing at the near by airport. I was on one of the higher streets, driving toward the river front. The black object blocked out the stars as it passed, and see
Jeff Challender writes, "On 9 January, 2001, China launched an unmanned space ship the first of the New Millennium with a UFO looking on. The Shenzou-2 is the name of this craft that flew majestically into space. The instrument and descent modules are based on the Russian Soyuz design. The descent module will be returned to Earth after seven days. Shenzou-2 itself is the orbital module, and is a fully equipped space lab of Chinese design. This laboratory portion is expected to stay on orbit for the next six months conducting 64 scientific experiments. Fifteen of these are inside the descent module, and will come down in China on or about 15 January. The rest are with the orbiting lab, with twelve in the interior, and 37 mounted on the spacecraft exterior. Payloads include micro-gravity experimental devices such as a crystal growing device, life science experiments covering 19 species of animals and plants, space ray and particle detectors and other scientific equipment. As the first space launch of the Millennium, Shenzhou 2 launch was assigned the International Designator of 2001-001. The Chinese call Shenzhou 2 "the first unmanned spaceship," as opposed to Shenzhou-1's "experimental spaceship." Shenzhou 2 is fully functional having life support systems operating as if there were a live crew aboard. It is "basically identical to a manned spacecraft," say the Chinese. It would appear that China is on the verge of a successful manned space flight, possibly later this year.
Jeff Challender writes, "While looking at the photos of the Shenzou-2 launch, I noticed a bell or pyramid shaped object flying next to the space launch during the flight to orbit. At first I considered that it might be a piece of the launch shroud which protects the space craft during ascent. That must be ruled out since in the picture it can be seen that the escape tower rockets have just been fired. These must be clear before the shroud can be jettisoned. I also entertained the possibility a part of one of the solid rocket boosters may account for the anomaly. But they can be clearly seen to be still in use in the photograph. Shedding any one, or any portion, of these before the proper time would result in loss of control of the entire rocket. So, we have some sort of oddity in the field of view. Bell shaped objects such as this one have been seen during NASA Shuttle flights. Such an object was seen twice during the flight of STS-101 in May 2000." The official Chinese space agency photograph can be seen at
