- SENATOR GLENN ON "FRASIER TV SHOW" CONTROVERSY
- Several people wrote saying that what Senator John Glenn'
statements concerning UFOs in space were not valid since he was on a comedy
show. Glenn was the first American to orbit Earth. The Mercury-6 astronaut
successfully completed a three-orbit mission around Earth on February 20,
1962, in Friendship 7, but was forced to manually pilot his spacecraft
for reentry when the autopilot failed. Flaming chunks of his spacecraft
flew past his window, but he landed safely. In 1998, at age 77 he returned
to space aboard the space shuttle STS-95 Discovery, where anomalous objects
were also observed. Glenn has logged over 218 hours in space. He appeared
on "Frasier" a nationwide situation comedy television show on
March 6, 2001, where Frasier and a female character are arguing, while
Glenn faces the camera and delivers the following speech playing himself:
- "Back in those glory days, I was very uncomfortable
when they asked us to say things we didn't want to say and deny other things.
Some people asked, you know, were you alone out there? We never gave
the real answer, and yet we see things out there, strange things, but we
know what we saw out there. And we couldn't really say anything. The
bosses were really afraid of this, they were afraid of the War of the Worlds
type stuff, and about panic in the streets. So, we had to keep quiet.
And now we only see these things in our nightmares or maybe in the movies,
and some of them are pretty close to being the truth."
- Lets assume that Senator John Glenn during the Frasier
show made prejudiced statements against a particular race or religion,
there is no doubt he would be held accountable, sitcom or not. I personally
feel his remarks on a national TV show were designed to tell us what he
saw in space, but to give him reasonable deniability if pressed. It is
interesting that many of his fellow astronauts have made similar statements.
Astronaut Dr. Brian O'Leary, told me, "We have contact with alien
cultures." James McDivet often claims he saw an unidentified object
in space, and even took photos of a beer can like device and the famous
"tadpole". I have never talked to an astronaut or seen a quote
from one that claims its all nonsense. Astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell, 1971
said, "We all know UFOs are real. All we need to ask is where are
they from." Just before my televised talk with him, he said something
like, "Listen to Major George Filer and these other speakers they're
telling the truth."
- GORDON COOPER'S MESSAGE TO THE UNITED NATIONS.
- Astronaut Gordon L. Cooper, one of America's original
seven Mercury Astronauts orbited the Earth for a record 34-hour, and 22
orbits in May of 1963 on board Faith 7. He personally saw and his men
filmed UFOs so he has been outspoken about the need for an open inquiry
into UFOs. In 1978, he sent the following letter to the United Nations:
- "I believe that these extraterrestrial vehicles
and their crews are visiting this planet from other planets, which are
a little more technically advanced than we are on Earth. I feel that we
need to have a top level, coordinated program to scientifically collect
and analyze data from all over the Earth concerning any type of encounter,
and to determine how best to interfere with these visitors in a friendly
fashion. We may first have to show them that we have learned how to resolve
our problems by peaceful means rather than warfare, before we are accepted
as fully qualified universal team members.
- Their acceptance will have tremendous possibilities of
advancing our world in all areas. Certainly then it would seem that the
U.N. has a vested interest in handling the subject quickly and properly.
I should point out that I am not an experienced UFO professional researcher
- I have not yet had the privilege of flying a UFO nor of meeting the crew
of one. However, I do feel that I am somewhat qualified to discuss them,
since I have been into the fringes of the vast areas of which they travel.
Also, I did have occasion in 1951 to have two days of observation of many
flights of them, of different sizes flying in fighter formation, generally
from west to east over Europe. They were at a higher altitude than we could
reach with our jet fighters. If the U.N. agrees to pursue this project
and lend the credibility to it, perhaps many more well qualified people
will agree to step forth and provide help and information." Sincerely
Astronaut Gordon Cooper .
- NEW YORK STRANGE OBJECT WITH LIGHTED WINDOWS
- PARISH -- On Sunday, March 3, 2001, an object was seen
in the southwestern sky at 7:30 PM. At first, it looked like a very large
and bright light. It was several times brighter than any planet. The
witness stated, "I'm an amateur astronomer and know how to identify
planets. When I viewed this object through my 10 x 50 binoculars it seemed
to have several lighted windows and beams of light coming from it, like
a cross formation. I have never seen anything like this before."

- NEW YORK UFO CRASH NEAR NIAGARA FALLS?
- BUFFALO-- A former professor at Temple University revealed
the following story regarding UFOs that are frequently sighted above Lake
Ontario. On or about April 15, 1992, a large disc shaped craft was observed
coming out of the lake around 7:00 AM and flying erratically south towards
Lockport, NY. The object appeared to wobble and moved lower appearing to
be in trouble. Observers claim it appeared to search for a landing spot,
continued to lose altitude and crashed on Campbell Boulevard (Route 270)
four miles west of Lockport and ten miles north of Buffalo. The crash
was similar to that seen in the movie "MIB". When the UFO crashed
it managed to avoid hitting the cars traveling the road. However, the
drivers of the cars stopped to examine the UFO and most waited until the
police arrived. The UFO was 100 feet in diameter and 25 feet high. Military,
fire and police quickly arrived and cleaned up the crash site and cautioned
those there not to talk about the incident. Some how the authorities were
able to keep the crash quiet and only family members of those who observed
the crash site have been told. We are looking for further information
on this alleged crash. We would like to hear from anyone having additional
information at Majorstar@aol.com.
- WISCONSIN DEAFENING ROAR
- MILWAUKEE -- On March 7, 2001, a citizen reported to
ISUR an occurrence that involved his whole family. He stated that they
were at home about 11:30 PM on Tuesday March 6, 2001, when he heard what
sounded like a jet engine. He considered this unusual, but went down to
his basement office. His family remained upstairs, then indicated to him
the roar was continuing and had become deafening. His wife complained
that it was so loud, as if directly overhead, that she was experiencing
ear discomfort. Meanwhile the witness' 15 year old daughter was getting
ready to turn in, when in response to the noise, she looked out of her
window and observed a ball of light about the size of the moon. As it
zoomed across the sky at what appeared to be about twice treetop level.
She indicated that the brilliance was about that of a star, and that as
it moved away, the noise stopped almost immediately. The witness then
phoned the Mitchell International Airport and was advised that no aircraft
were in his area. This event occurred in a suburban neighborhood where
the witness polled his neighbors about what they might have heard or observed.
Several told him that they thought it might be an earthquake due to their
houses shaking during the roar. Another went out to investigate, but saw
nothing even though the noise was deafening. The case has been referred
to MUFON of Wisconsin for investigation. This witness is searching for
additional neighborhood witnesses. Thanks to Tom Sheets, ISUR Board, State
- TEXAS UFO OVER PRESIDENT BUSH'S TEXAS WHITE HOUSE?
- COVINGTON -- While working Sunday, February 25, 2001,
with my computer upstairs, I had an unobstructed view to the S.W. through
two large windows at 5:45 PM when I happened to notice an unusual contrail
arcing toward the North from the direction of Waco. As a former commercial
pilot, with instrument and multiengine ratings, I noticed that this particular
contrail had a base, which appeared over the apparent SW horizon, and the
angle was so steep (probable 60 degrees) that it immediately caught my
attention. I went to the window for further investigation (thinking, perhaps
this is an airliner in distress--when much to my amazement, this object
did an abrupt vertical ascent from a fixed point. That's right, no pull
up with a normal curve at contrail bottom. I'm talking about a change
of direction, speed and ascent almost instantaneously to the vertical-90
degrees ascent and it accelerated as it went forward. Since the sun was
setting in the clear Western sky and this contrail and object was clearly
visible, especially since it was reflecting in varying intensities as it
passed through our upper atmosphere. I caught a very good reflection of
the object with binoculars. It had no wings and was egg shaped, (not tubular
like a missile). It was metallic silver with reflectivity of brightly
polished chrome. It was at 25-30 thousand feet range when I first saw
it. As it accelerated upward, the contrail was not continuous, but rather
periodic as if it were passing through different temperatures. I watched
it till it disappeared from the sky still in a vertical ascent. Good God;
I thought this might have been a missile launch the way this craft behaved.
The only major military base is Fort Hood, located a 100 miles south.
President Bush's Texas compound is 60 miles south. My parents saw a portion
of the contrail that went vertical and they were amazed as to the phenomena.
Hope this wasn't Saddam's avowed first attempt at retribution. If it was
however, our missile defense worked, because I'm still here to report this
sighting. There was no sound involved in this incident. From now on, I
will replace the binoculars with a video camera. Thanks to Peter Davenport
NUFORC www.ufocenter.com who spoke with this witness and found him to be
credible. Editor's Note: Perhaps it was "the angel rides in a whirlwind
and directs this storm," that President Bush twice discussed in his
- "PSEUDO CRYSTALS" FOUND IN ABDUCTEE HOUSE DUST
- M. J. Ruben writes: "One year ago, Dr. William
Levengood of Pinelandia Biophysics Laboratory announced his exciting discovery
of unidentified microscopic particles which were found in house dust of
abductees." This research has steadily continued and new types of
particles or "pseudo crystals" have been discovered. More unusual
"pseudo crystals" have been found in household dust of individuals
claiming alien abduction. The research continues through the work of biophysicist
Dr. William C. Levengood of Michigan. The "glassy particles"
were first discovered in 1997, when an experiencer (abductee) recalled
her nighttime encounter with aliens and a beam of light that shined on
the floor next to her bed. The woman was awakened by the beam of light.
She thrust her arm into the sparkling beam of white light and watched
it shimmer on her arm. In the morning, she contacted Dr. Levengood and
told him what happened. He went to her home and collected dust samples
from the whitish dust residue on her furniture where she had reported seeing
the sparkling beam of light during the night. This dust contained unexplainable
"glassy particles" and "pseudo crystals" which were
unidentifiable. This discovery led Dr. Levengood to search for other clues
in household dust. Our readers may be interested in seeing the latest
photographic evidence of new "pseudo crystals." There are five
pages of photos at the Alien Abduction Experience and Research web site
[http://www.abduct.com/aaer2/r10.htm]." Thanks to Marilyn Ruben and
- CANADIAN UFO SIGHTINGS HIGH LAST YEAR
- UFO sightings are high this year, but no alien abductions
were reported. British Columbia and the Yukon recorded unusually high sightings
of UFOs in 2000, a year that kept researchers with Canada's main UFO study
group busy with the third highest number of incidents in the 11-year history
of its annual report. According to Chris Rutkowski, research co-coordinator
for Ufology Research of Manitoba, or UFOROM, British Columbians reported
102 UFO sightings, while Yukon residents claimed to have seen 26, numbers
that he said are disproportionate in relation to their respective populations.
"I suppose people can come up with their own explanations about B.C.,"
said Mr. Rutkowski, a recreational Ufologist and self-proclaimed "open-minded
skeptic" with a degree in astronomy. "As far as the Yukon goes,
it's very odd. The number of sightings is usually high relative to the
population density." Ontario, with Canada's largest population of
more than 11 million people, should record the highest number of reports.
However, at 53 sightings, Ontario ranked second behind B.C., with its
population of just over four million. The Yukon's 26 sightings placed
the territory third in Canada, despite its population of 30,600 residents.
Mr. Rutkowski said the popularity of provincial groups like UFO BC, which
has its own hotline and Web site and whose members are monthly guests on
a radio talk show, helps explain the propensity of UFO reports in that
province. UFO investigators in the Yukon, meanwhile, suspect the jump
in sightings and the number of cases involving triangular-shaped flying
objects may suggest the testing of secret military aircraft in the area,
said Mr. Rutkowski.
- UFOROM compiles its data from reports filed to the research
group by provincial counterparts, police, and federal agencies like Transport
Canada and the Department of National Defense. Across Canada, reports
of UFOs totaled 263 in 2000, ranking the year third behind 1997, when 284
UFOs were sighted, and 1993, with its record 489 sightings. In an average
year, there are 236 reported sightings, according UFOROM data. Mr. Rutkowski
said most of the sightings in 1993 were attributed to a cosmic fireball,
or bolide. Similarly, the 263 sightings in 2000 only produced 34 cases
that remained unknown after further investigation. "But if they're
watching this star and it gets bigger and bigger and turns out to be a
saucer that lands next to them and two men with antennas get out, that's
a high strangeness event that's difficult to write off as a star."
Among the 263 reports across Canada were two close encounters of the third
kind, in which a witness saw figures or entities along with the UFO. In
one such incident in Mission, B.C., a man claimed he saw a flying saucer
outside his home, in which he observed a being that appeared human, clad
in coveralls and staring back at him. Thanks to Louise A. Lowry HnSASSY1
- MEXICO REPTOID SIGHTED IN BAJA CALIFORNIA
- ROSARITO -- An alien was sighted on the beach in, in
Mexico's state of Baja California on Wednesday, February 29, 2001 by two
Mexican policemen. According to Urak Pavlov, director of UTRENE, a UFO
research group based in Tijuana, B.V., Mexico, The two policemen were on
patrol near the thermoelectric plant in Rosarito" when "they
saw what appeared to be a reptilian creature walking on the beach with
a black suit on and with glaring red eyes. The creature was seen at 3:17
a.m. At first they were too scared to talk to anyone about the incident
and preferred not to speak of it." The Reptoid sighting is only one
of many UFO incidents that have taken place in Baja California recently,
Pavlov said. "There has been "a wave of sightings in Baja California,
especially in the mountains and along the coast." On Monday, March
5, 2001, Pavlov reported, ""There were 50 sheep mutilated on
ranches near Tocate, B.C. All of the sheep were left without any blood"
On Wednesday, February 28, 2001, "in the evening, my wife and I closed
the office, and she said, 'Look! What is that!?' I said, 'Let me get
the video camera.' So I did," he recalled. "This big luminescent
object reflected all the colors of the spectrum--yellow, red, blue, white,
etc. and stopped at one place in the sky in Tijuana." Thanks to Scott

- RUSSIA UFOs HOVER OVER AIRPORT AGAIN
- BARNAUL -- Anatoli reports that on March 6,7 and 9, 2001,
a UFO was observed above the city around 2200 hours (10:00 PM) in Southern
Siberia. It hovered above Vlasikha,the southeast part of Barnaul. The
object had the form of a sphere. In the first evening the sphere did not
change in any way, in the following two nights it "danced" in
the sky. It would increase and decrease in size, "blow up" similarly
to salute, joined again and changed. The colors, moved sharply. One inhabitant
of Vlasikha videotaped more than 1.5 of hours of the object on three evenings.
See newspaper "Free Rate" (Svobodniy Kurs). On January 27,
2001, UFOs were observed above Barnaul, and the pilots of two IL-76 four-engine
jet aircraft refused to take off with the UFO hovering over the airport.
Other flights were diverted to other airports for the ninety minutes according
to Ivan Komarov the local aviation company director. Thanks to Anatolij

- NATIONAL SECURITY SKEWED UFO NEWS COVERAGE
- SEATTLE -- Some of the nation's best-known news organizations
have quietly cooperated with U.S. government authorities to deceive the
public about unidentified flying objects UFOs, according to a new book
by Terry Hansen a Seattle journalist. According to Hansen, "They
did this mainly by suppressing their own coverage and distributing government
propaganda under the guise of factual reporting." In "The Missing
Times" news media complicity in the UFO conspiracy, author Hansen
explains how the same deception techniques used during wars and other national-security
crises have been used to manage public perceptions about UFOs. Beginning
in the 1940s, UFOs raised a variety of urgent national-security concerns
among government policymakers who responded by deploying an array of standard
censorship and propaganda methods, sometimes with the help of cooperative
news organizations. Although the CIA has acknowledged it planned a covert
mass-media program of "training and debunking" designed to discourage
public interest in the UFO phenomenon, the Agency has not told the full
story, Hansen reports. Documentation now confirms that the CIA orchestrated
production of a 1966, CBS TV program about UFOs, narrated by famed newsman
Walter Cronkite. The program filled with false and misleading information,
was broadcast as part of the "CBS Reports" documentary series
during a period of especially intense UFO activity across the nation. A
range of evidence suggests that other elite news organizations known to
have had close ties to the CIA also played key roles in the deception program.
Hansen said. "My book argues that these assignments were related
to UFOs, as well. Despite official denials, UFOs have long been one of
the most pressing national-security issues facing the U.S. government."
