- NEW JERSEY
- On February 27, 1998, at 1:35 PM, architect
Allen Wahl, was walking his dog along the Atlantic Ocean beach in Ocean
Grove, NJ. This location is about thirty miles south of New York City.
He decided to rest and look at the ocean since it was such a crystal clear
and a deep blue sky. A strange looking ball shaped UFO with fins flew
over his position moving from east to west and close by the Great Auditorium
in Ocean Grove. Allen stated, "He never saw a UFO before, but this
made him a believer. It looked like a diving bell or bathysphere about
ten feet in diameter." It reminded him of a Jules Vern science fiction
antique ship with lines of rust running down its side. The UFO appeared
as it may have come from the sea, although he had not specifically see
it come out of the sea. About thirty minutes later an Army helicopter with
what appeared to be guns sticking out the front passed directly overhead
his position. The next morning at 9:00AM more helicopters were also flying
in the area at a very low level possibly searching for the craft. He is
sure there were other witnessses. Thanks to: Allen Wahl, 83 Franklin Street,
Ocean Grove, NJ.
- NEPTUNE, NEW JERSEY. Six hours later
at 7:30 PM, a few miles from the previous sighting Mike Niemcyk, a 17
year old, spotted a huge triangular craft moving slowly over his home in
Neptune. Mike called his mother to observe the craft in the night sky.
They felt the UFO looked similar to a stealth bomber, however, it had too
many lights and was too large to be a standard aircraft. They could hear
a slight humming sound as the craft headed southwest. Interestingly, they
had heard about the earlier sighting daylight sighting in Ocean Grove.
I spoke with the father of the boy, since he seemed so excited. The father
a retired Navy Seal and boat captain had not observed the craft. However,
the father saw a similar craft, four years ago while fishing at night.
He was with a policeman, when they both saw a craft fly in from the Atlantic
Ocean a few feet above the water. It slowly moved into position 150 yards
off the jetty and seemed to hover for a minute. It suddenly took off straight
up giving them a great show. Telephone interview with Niemcyk family,

- TOMS RIVER, NJ. On February 19, at 4:30
p.m., Ellis Smith, his nine-year- old son and his five-year-old daughter
watched a UFO perform aerobatics over Toms River fifty miles south of New
York City. Ellis said. "We were driving home from the theater in Toms
River," Smith reported, "when I noticed about 20 miles to the
southwest, 40-45 degrees (above the horizon) what appeared to be an instant
contrail" behind "a very bright white light. The sky was clear
and I couldn't see where this thing came from." At first the Smith
family thought it was a private plane, but then it stopped and very, very
slowly began to level out. It took about three minutes for it to complete
what appeared to be a J, then glowed very brightly, changing sizes, and
then appeared to change into a very large, bright, solid object with a
mist-like substance surrounding it." The UFO repeated these maneuvers
six times. Each formation of the J took about four minutes, Smith reported.
"The first event...lasted nearly two minutes. whereas toward the last
one, it was barely 30 seconds." At the end, "it looked to us
like the saucer slowed down, then turned into a ball, then hazed up"
before vanishing. Thanks to Joe Trainor, editor of UFO Roundup #9, March
- BARNEGAT LIGHT, NJ. The weekend Islander
News carried a photograph of a disc shaped UFO near the Barnegat Lighthouse
on February 4, 1998. No one knows how this photograph came to be pinned
to wall of the local post office. The postmaster Lee Kwapinsi stated "Perhaps
there's some truth after all, to Brad Honigburg's book, Situation Barnegat
Light where aliens may be living near the lighthouse. The UFO appears
quite large an estimated fifty feet in diameter and is a typical saucer
shape. The local Coast Guard Station reports that unidentified craft are
frequently seen along the Atlantic coastline. Thanks to Pat Marcattilio.
- Two-thirds the Earth's surface is covered
by water and it seems logical that the UFOs or Unidentified Submerged Objects
(USOs) could hide in this vast area. One famous New Jersey resident Ivan
Sanderson wrote a fine book called Invisible Residents, that pointed to
the existence of underwater bases. He points out there are numerous records
of eye-witness spanning centuries that told of encounters in lakes, seas
and oceans around the world. For example, in August 1954, Dutch Sea Captain
Jan Bos of the SS Groot Beer, reported observing a strange moonlike object
rising out of the Atlantic ocean some 90 miles east of Cape Cod Light.
"There were illuminated ports round the rim of the craft. The object's
speed was later described as having been fantastic." Similar reports
along the New Jersey coast have been told for years. Navy submarines and
the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute research ships have picked up the
sounds of fast moving craft in the deep waters off Puerto Rico. Hydrophones
and sonar equipment picked up fast moving underwater craft at an estimated
depth of 30,000 feet where no known submarine could operate. Divers operating
off Norfolk, Virginia reported observing fast moving underwater craft of
roughly disc shape. The Bristol Channel and Long Island Sound often have
reports from multiple witnesses of craft diving into them. Frequently,
air and sea rescue searches are conducted, but no remains or debris is
found. I just received a phone call of a possible landing site in central
New Jersey, our investigators are preceding to the site in a ladies back
- NEW YORK
- On February 26, at 7:00 PM Andrew Cavaseno
and his daughter were driving home westbound on the Southern State Parkway
on Long Island. Near the Cross-Island Parkway, they observed a large pattern
of lights, half the size of the moon. There were five or six bright lights
spread out from south to north.. He pulled his car to a stop on the side
of the road to observe more closely. The lights were perfectly stationary
almost in a slight "arch" shape. It reminded him of the sightings
on television over Phoenix, Arizona. Although, there were hundreds of
cars, the others did not pull off the road. The span from one end to the
other was a huge arch. The object itself was dark about the size of large
stadium. After 15 minutes, it literally "switched off" It did
not look like any known aircraft. Thanks to Andrew Cavaseno.
- Sunday morning, February 28, 1998, at
12:30 AM the witness was looking to the south from the Kenwood Towers apartment
complex, overlooking the Cincinnati Municipal Lunken Airport. The witness
reported a pulsing red-light, initially thinking it was the water tower
in Mount Washington. Spotted were a string of four objects, in a line,
headed east. They were said to be 'the exact same red color as the lights
on top of cell towers.' They were thought to be a formation of planes,
but there were no conventional 'strobe lights' commonly seen on planes.
The four separate objects seemed to make a course change and turned to
the north, headed approx. 1/4 mile east of the witness' location. As they
were coming toward his direction, the witness exited his car. The first
three objects flew past at a low elevation, separated by a distance of
about 50 to 100 feet apart. No sound could be heard. The witness added
that the fourth object, in the rear, DID have the noise of a plane, like
a Cessna. He again stressed that the other three objects did not have any
sound, but that the fourth object had a muffled sound 'like a hang-glider,
airplane or helicopter.' The red lights could be seen across "maybe
45-degrees of the sky" at an elevation of less than a thousand feet,
and moving at speed of a slow- moving airplane or helicopter. The third
object at one point appeared to speed up and then slow down moving slightly
out of formation and then back. No engine noise was heard to accompany
this movement. The witness is a former security guard at the apartment
complex, who describes himself as a skeptic. They appeared to come from
across the Ohio river from Kentucky, passing over Lunken Airport. The witness
contacted the Airport Police and the FAA. Thanks to: KENNY YOUNG firstname.lastname@example.org
- At approximately 1 to1:30 PM EST on Thursday,
February 26, an aerospace engineer and former Air Force officer who lives
in Deltona, FL, noticed a very conspicuous, high-altitude contrail passing
over his home. The object producing the trail was not visible due to altitude,
but the rate at which it was generating the trail indicated that it was
moving at extremely high speed - possibly 2-3 times faster than conventional
aircraft. The path was from SW to NE. No sound was heard. The object disappeared
but the contrail remained visible for several minutes. The individual called
an investigator while the object was actually under observation; he was
extremely agitated, almost incoherent at times. Before hanging up, the
individual said he would make a video of the trail.
- The Mobile, Alabama Fox Television Channel
10 news on Monday evening, February 9, ran a videotape of a UFO taken by
Christie Edwards of Robertsdale, Alabama. The object was a bright silver
object in a disc or ball shape. The object was videotaped on Saturday,
February 7th, about 25 miles southeast of Mobile. Christie also saw a similar
craft Monday morning but apparently was unable to get this one on tape.
The circular object was flying in a clear blue sky. " She said, "It
looked like a bright light, but it was real big. And it's nothing I've
ever seen before," she told Fox news.
- On February 21, 1998 EST in Semmes (Mobile
County), Alabama, two witnesses on the front porch simultaneously noticed
a red glow in the west at 11:40 PM Central Time. The UFOs shape was generally
rectangular. The edges of the rectangle seemed to be bowed inward; although
the outside edges of the rectangle were comparatively sharply defined.
The interior of the rectangle was somewhat diffuse. One witness described
the observation as "eerie," but stated "it must have been
some kind of flare. "No aircraft were heard or seen, although the
sighting location was within three miles of the municipal airport, which
is directly south of witnesses. The light drifted downward from about 20
degrees to disappear further west of the point it was originally noticed.
It disappeared below the tree-line west of witnesses at about 10 degrees
elevation. The witness described the movement as "drifting" downward,
diagonally. The craft was estimated to be at more than one quarter of a
mile away. It's apparent size was 1" high by 1/3" wide at arm's
length. The sighting lasted for one to two minutes. The glow was constant
throughout the observation. Thanks to John Thompson.
- SAN LUIS VALLEY, COLORADO
- Christopher O'Brien reports on animal
mutilations and UFOs in his Mysterious Valley Report V-1 dated 02/22/98.
In December, January and February there are a series of unusual animal
deaths in The San Luis Valley (SLV), that appear associated with numerous
reports of anomalous object sightings. There are numerous reports of fantastic
aerial activity still under investigation by David Perkins. Massive military
activity was followed by reports of huge "disco-ball" craft,
which shot out of smaller red lights that crises-crossed the Huerfano Valley
for hours for three nights. A flurry of sightings occurred on December
13, 1997, when Thomas Paye and a friend were driving north on State Highway
285, north of La Jara, CO. They witnessed two unusual lights or objects,
the first at 7:05 PM, and the second at 10 PM. Both objects flew in the
general area of the mutilation of a gelding. The first object was an orange
globe, the second, a blue one. A few hours later, between 1:15 and 1:40
AM two witnesses saw a large object slowly crossing the valley from east
to west near Mesita. They estimated that it took 25 minutes to traverse
fifty miles. An hour later at 3:00 AM, a female witness about two miles
north of Center, also witnessed the object and wrote:
- "I saw out my back door one of those
triangular UFO's hovering over my south field. The UFO moved slowly and
hovered by the roof of the house and over by the silos. Then it came back
over the house and a beam of white-blue light came out of the middle and
something was taken up in the beam. I couldn't see what, but its shape
was smallish. I was so scared I couldn't talk. It played some kind of musical
rhythm when the lights around the edge flashed off and on.."
- On December 17, 1997, another horse mutilation
occurred near the Alamosa River. At 10:30 AM, rancher Ron Gardiner discovered
a dead gelding five miles SW of Alamosa. The animal was found lying on
it's right side at the bottom of a dry, seven feet deep irrigation canal.
Broken Chimisa bushes and thrashing marks showed evidence of a struggle,
but only the unfortunate gelding's tracks were visible. The carcass was
still warm and the rancher estimated the animal was mutilated sometime
around dawn. The Sheriff's investigator, the rancher and Chris investigated
the-site shooting videotape and photographs. They took samples for forensic
testing. The horse was missing its penis and an 8 inch circular patch of
hide behind the sheath. The rear-end was neatly cored out in a slightly
elongated circle to a depth of 8 to 9 inches. No apparent scavenger interest
was noted and two horses in the small herd seemed curious and unafraid
of the carcass. A five inch shallow gash was carved in the t on the neck.
Several drops, which appeared to be blood, were found in snow about 60
feet away over the fence and across the road. There was no wind, fog
and a temperature just below zero at the approximate time of death. There
was dense fog in both this horse killing and the November 30, 1997, Hooper
- On January 5, 1998, three pigs were discovered
mutilated by two San Luis ranchers. A local man named Arnie reported:
"Three white 100 to 150 pounds pigs were mutilated. Each pig had
a cored out rectum and other round holes in the abdomen. They had been
discovered three days before I saw them." Bob Green from La Sierra
News took photos with a digital camera.
- Like five other cases from the southern
Alamosa County area since 1994, the horse was found near the Alamosa River.
This latest "mutilation" report and the recent November 30, 1997,
calf death case seem unusual. The vast majority of San Luis Valley these
unusual animal deaths (UADs) occur from last-frost to first-frost, during
the warmer months. Rarely do deaths occur during cold sub- zero nights,
so this may be a new wrinkle. The only measurable pollution near the valley
is located 23 miles up the Alamosa River at the Summittville Mine Superfund
Site. Results of forensic testing will be posted when it's made available.
- On January 7, 1998, from 5:45 PM to 3:00
AM, massive aerial activity was reported by five witnesses near La Veta.
They observed "Disco balls" shooting off multi-colored lights
and smaller red lights while craft criss-cross the Heurfano in a "grid-like
pattern." One witness said, "He thought it was the end of the
world!" The next day around 10:30AM in Huerfano County, a La Veta
witness reported "20 to 30" jets criss-crossing the in a grid
pattern that was "highly unusual." Six hours later, at 5:20
PM, over the Baca Ranch, on State Highway 17, two witnesses saw a brightly
blinking light east of their location. They then observed a "150 foot
diameter disc" with a small, low cupola light on its underside. The
UFO was "between 1500 to 2000 feet "in altitude and traveling
south down the center of the valley at 550 mph." Three witnesses in
Costilla County coming home from basketball practice also noticed two
lights emanating from the sky in San Luis Valley at the approximate location
where the three pigs were discovered.
- On January 10, 1998, in Huerfano County
there were more reports of those pesky fireballs that have been reported
here in the valley for decades. On January 12, 1998, A mysterious object
lit up the night sky followed by a deafening explosion. Military spokesmen
denied the object was a military aircraft. Local scientists speculated
it could have been a meteor. ." It is interesting the January 11,
the Colorado object's glow was again a captured by the same security camera
that caught last year's alleged meteor. It is fascinating that last October's
huge New Mexico to Texas meteor occurred on the same flight path --almost
a year to-the-day -- from a similar object seen on the same flight path
- January 20, 1998, at 6:00 PM south of
the Great Sand Dunes, a Hooper resident reports watching a "big star
doing some big twists" over his friend's house. Stephanie Sylvester
of The Denver Post-1/28/98 reports from Breckenridge. Several people saw
a large fiery object trailed by a plume of smoke crash to the ground near
here about noon Tuesday. "It was a large object that was on fire
with smoke that was spiraling off the back of it," said Blue River
Marshal, Steve Ford. "My first thought was that it was a meteor."
- Chris is working with well-known scientist
Dr. W.C. Levengood's who does soil and plant analysis on Crop Circles.
Nancy Talbot, coordinator for Dr. Levengood will present these results
at the National MUFON Conference in Denver this coming June. Preliminary
analysis has been highly intriguing. Abnormal levels of magnetite and depressed
redox-levels in plant mitochondria are mentioned extensively. Christopher
- Bob Hetsko writes radio news programs
have started reporting frequent UFO sightings over Douglas county. The
witnesses report the object looked like an airplane crashing, however no
aircraft was reported missing. Thanks to KHOW radio 630AM news.
- NEW MEXICO
- Paul Cook is investigating the Bill Sauter
case regarding a video he took over Deming, New Mexico on January 31, 1998.
Bill stated, "Something out there was not an airplane and it wasn't
a blimp. It looked like a 747, but without wings and without a tail section."
The correct Website address for Paul Cook is http://n6rpf.com- us.net/sauter.html.
- Respondents reported sighting a very
large Orange triangular shaped illumination over the Wodonga area, Victoria,
Australia on February 6, 1998, from 11:30 to 11:45 PM. A very large intense
bright orange light appeared in the southeast sky. One respondent said
that he "was even looking at the stars in that area of the sky when
this triangular illumination just seemed to appear from no-where."
The Orange object moved from the South east towards Wodonga (NNW) and
then appeared to hover for about 30 seconds in the east. It changed direction
and took five minutes to travel out of sight towards the Hume Power Station.
It was the size of a commercial jetliner traveling at only 600 feet with
no sound. On February 2nd, at 11.55 PM in Tasmania, Australia witnesses
report sighting two bright white triangular objects ripping through the
night sky over Devenport. On February 14th, at 5:45 AM, on the Gold Coast,
Queensland a large black disc shape object was sighted.. The disc shaped
object heading due north flew on a straight an level course. Its speed
was slower than a commercial aircraft but too fast for a balloon since
there was only a 10 knot breeze SSW to NNE.
- Ross Dowe reports that an Australia
train crew saw a giant UFO. A very large UFO landed at a remote railroad
crossing in northern Australia in late December 1997 and was seen by the
entire crew aboard the freight train. The sighting took place at Kajabbi,
Queensland also known as the Milk StopKajabbi located 1,210 miles northwest
of Brisbane. As the freight train rolled into Kajabbi, the crew spied
what looked like "a large building" beside the track. One witness
remarked, "When did that go up?" The object was described as
"a large, almost transparent, rusty brown building large enough to
accommodate a line of trains." It was in excess of 1,000 feet or 300
meters. The UFO "was seen to lift off the ground and take off straight
up into the sky" as the train approached the siding. The crew was
rattled by the sight, and a few even said, "They will never go to
that area again." Elsewhere in northern Queensland, aboriginal people
"have reported sighting many Min Min lights." (Thanks to Ross
Dowe and the Australia/New Zealand National UFO Hotline and for this report.)
