Robert Hanley reports, "I was amazed to see a fast moving Star like object similar to the California sighting of June 1, 1998. Both occurred at about the same 9:30 PM time frame. I am very well versed in airframe types and good at judging altitude and rates of speed having been in Naval Aviation. This must have been a very large object at an extremely high altitude, and it was moving at a very high speed. I first picked it up toward the east from my backyard on western Long Island. I viewed it moving south and climbing until I lost it behind the tree line. The color of it was white light (probably reflected sunlight) and it was way too high, way too large, and moving way too fast to be conventional civil or military aviation." Thanks to Skywatch International and Robert Hanley
On May 29, 1998, at 2:00 AM, "I went to a large parking lot in Grand Rapids to watch a storm approaching. I saw a ball of light in the clouds traveling from the north side of the city to the south side. I really do not think it was ball lightning. It moved in a straight line and very fast through the clouds. I saw the glow of water vapor around it. Although, the glow was not very large I saw the object while leaving go deeper into the clouds, and fade away. The cloud height could not have been too high and the sighting took 10 to 15 seconds."

On Monday June 1, 1998, Debbie Hickman of Elk City reports, "While I was letting the cats out at 9:45 PM, I stepped outside to skywatch. I observed three airplanes overhead, and I could identify them as aircraft as they had red and white strobing lights. I noticed a very dim light near the big dipper. As I watched the light grew in brightness until it was brighter than the other stars nearby. This light moved in a southerly direction about two inches measured at arm's length while the light was about 1/4 inch diameter. Then it suddenly winked out. I scanned the skies for a few minutes, but the light did not reappear. The sighting lasted about 10-15 seconds. Thanks to Debbie and Jim Hickman, VP of Skywatch.
On May 28, 1998, Hugo Starri at Buff Point reports seeing orange lights flying in different formations starting at 7:30 PM. The lights would fly very fast and then stop, start up, dash around and disappear. The sighting lasted for about ten minutes. Hugo,s next door neighbor has been flying nearly every type of plane for the last 40 years. He could not believe the sighting as it unfolded. +61243993439 Thanks to Hugo Starri 14 Kyong Ave Buff Point NSW 2262 Australia,
John Thompson, former MUFON Georgia State Director, writes:
"If in fact millions are being messed-with--I don't like the word abductions as it's not happening as most abduction researchers think it is. The aliens' real goal is to influence mankind's thinking process. There is no evidence that physical abductions are happening! But, people are seeing non-human entities -my own investigations show they are! All the "black magic" is done by a mental/technical process we can't comprehend, which does not involve physically touching folks.
"I believe that this alien intelligence -- one that is separate from the extraterrestrials -- keeps revisiting people to "condition" and "recondition" them as they see fit. In other words, what "abductions" are about is mind-control; mind-control to keep humans from trying to stop whatever the earth- bound aliens are doing. Their ultimate goal may be for man to create a climate right for one-world rule; with the aliens as the ultimate unseen rulers. The plan is to ensure mankind's enslavement or destruction (as Dr. David Jacobs correctly implies, but incorrectly understands). I don't think it has anything do with making hybrids and breeding. That's all smoke; much of it is created by the alleged "abductees" themselves. The goal is control; the control of mankind.
"Entities are being seen and they are coming back repeatedly. Dr. Jacobs is right on this. Why? What are they doing in people's bedrooms so frequently? They are not just visiting or looking us over. It doesn't take 20 trips to the same individual to determine that! They are here for their own evil and sinister purposes--that's my conclusion. I am basing my conclusion on over 120 formal UFO investigations that I have conducted, and hundreds of others I have talked to. Most would not sign MUFON forms for various reasons.
"I don't agree with the "Gray" concept at all. Most entity sightings I have investigated involved what I call the "Shadows" or what old-timers in rural Georgia call, "Haints." I've had people see them go through walls, run over them with their trucks (they disappeared on coming inside the cab of the truck) and seen them running along roads. The basic description all witnesses give is a dark figured, less than six feet tall, usually faceless featured, entity. Sometimes they are seen with blazing red eyes and have clawed hands.
"On other entity cases that involved more classic looking ET aliens, I judged two of the abductees as not being mentally capable, and another as being fantasy prone. The latter individual, incidentally, said there were military officers aboard his flying saucer, working hand in hand with the Grays and the little Browns. If you deal with these ET type abductees enough you soon find large holes in their stories. The only accounts that seem to stand up are these "Shadows" that go back hundreds of years. I do not think these are ET aliens, but actually demonic entities. These are engaging in the mind- control. These are, as the Bible warns (and I'm not a religious zealot), the entities who are trying to control mankind.
"I do accept that ETs are visiting earth. I investigated a case where a credible individual saw a silver-suited alien after seeing a huge disc fly-over. I would like to believe differently, but my research has led me to this line of reasoning. I have always said that if I thought I was investigating demons, I would get out of ufology and turn it over to the clergy who want to exorcise "the evil aliens." Well, I'm still here. But, now, I only concentrate on ET UFO signs. Thanks to John Thompson.
I have spoken with about a hundred fine and honest people who feel something strange is happening in their lives. They are concerned, distraught, but strangely confidential about their abductions. They are often embarrassed to tell friends and even loved ones. A few have written books under assumed names. Only a brave few have ventured forth to tell their story on television or in public.
Yesterday, I spoke to the staff of my local representative, who claimed they never had an abductee complain. Very few police have been called, yet allegedly millions are being abducted according to books such as written by Dr. David Jacobs of Temple University. Most abductees freely admit they are reluctant to go to the authorities. This is understandable because they feel alone and have little real evidence. It also appears the entities give them a clear message to remain silent.
Often hypnosis is used to obtain the abductee's story. Both scientists and law enforcement tend to disregard evidence obtained under hypnosis. I agree with Victoria Alexander who suggested we treat an abduction as a crime seen and attempt to gain evidence. Abducttees need to start thinking like detectives or scientists. Sometimes, the abductee knows when and where an abduction is likely to occur. Let's assume it from their bedroom. The point of entry is often windows, walls or ceilings.
I suggest you closely examine your room for imperfections in your walls or glass. Photographs of your room and your body may be helpful to establish a basis or starting point. A good documented physical check up with extensive blood work is important. With the help of scientists we need to develop experiments, that would prove an abduction. People often claim they are floated out a window or through a wall. There may be structural differences in these materials. There is some indication people never actually leave their bedroom and the entities come to them to perform their operations. Evidence of their presence may in fact be overlooked. Upon morning, take a few moments to determine if anything is different, in your room or the covers, etc. We have found strange marks on night clothing and bedding. We have found strange dust on clean surfaces. When analyzed this dust is more like crystallized glass than dust.
I would encourage you to purchase a black light bulb. Recently, I bought one for $3.00. Use this light to look for any unusual fluorescence markings or powders. One woman recently found a silver like powder on her back. This powder is now being analyzed. It was removed from her body with Scotch tape, placed in a clean jar and mailed to a laboratory for analysis. Any supporting evidence makes your story much more persuading to the authorities.
Nancy Talbot reports that wheat seeds have been used to prove something unusual happened during the night to experiencers. Wheat seeds were placed in a jell inside a capsule, that was then put in the hair curlers of an experiencer. Each night the abductee placed a new capsule in her curlers and went to bed. After thirty days she had thirty capsules each had been with her during sleeping hours. Each night she kept a diary and noted when she felt she had been abducted. The seeds and capsules they contained were examined in a laboratory. One capsule had collapsed as if it had been in a vacuum. The seed was different from the rest and appears to have been under some type of radiation or distress. It would barely germinate, while the others were healthy. This particular seed was in her curlers, the night the woman wrote she had been abducted.
I suggest there may be other ways to test. Wearing a watch or jewelry that would indicate altitude, pressure, or lack of oxygen may provide additional data. The more scientific data we have the better. Generally, the abductee does not know when they are abducted. However, there are indicators such as bleeding, the covers moved, pajamas put on incorrectly. When you are reasonably sure you are abducted call the police and demand a thorough investigation. I know this takes courage, but as a citizen who pays taxes you have this right.
Help the police look for evidence. Attempt to keep your nightly clothing and furniture surfaces exceptionally clean. Dust the bed stand each night. Check each morning for find dust or glass particles; clothes may have marks. Your person may have silver or strange powder. Check the area with a black light. Many abductees report an unusual powder residue in the room or on their person. This should be analyzed. Small footprints are sometimes found outside on the ground or in a house where there are no children. We need detective work.
Collect samples of suspected powder or markings, in small clean baby bottles using a cue tip. Deposit cue tip inside bottle. Detailed records should be kept on the location of the material. If black light or similar lights reveal silver or powder like residue, remove with Scotch tape and place in baby bottle but attempt to keep the residue from sticking to the bottle. Scientists, and detectives are supposed to have open minds. Challenge their scientific intuitiveness, masculinity, femininity, patriotism, religion. Something that will get them interested.
Abductees must take the initiative and unite. Groups are more likely to be heard than individuals. The tactics used by any political group are effective in gaining political clout. I encourage you to stand up and be heard. Go see your members of Congress and show your evidence. Your medical records and other proof can help you to be convincing. We are working towards Congressional Hearings, your collected data and news reports are important. We will attempt to help. We are in a phase of intelligence and scientific collection of data. Yesterday Jon Boby from the Letterman Late Night Show called and asked would abductees like to tell their story on the show? Call me if you would like to appear. Ethiopian proverb states "When spiders unite they can tie down a lion."
Ron Hannavig made the following analysis of Dr. Prudoff's excellent review of former NASA engineer Paul Hill's book Unconventional Flying Objects carried in last weeks Filer's Files #21. One of the most consistently observed characteristic of UFO flight is a ubiquitous pattern in which they tilt to perform all maneuvers. Specifically, they sit level to hover, tilt forward to move forward, tilt backward to stop, bank to turn, and descend by "falling- leaf" or "silver-dollar-wobble" motions.
Detailed analysis by Hill shows that such motion is inconsistent with aerodynamic requirements, but totally consistent with some form of repulsive force-field propulsion. Remember those standard buffing machines used to buff the floors in the military barracks? I could never get the hang of "flying" one of those machines. What is being described here could be likened to the experienced effects which are familiar to nearly everyone who had gone through basic training. Another puzzle resolved by Hill's analysis is that craft observed to travel continuously at Mach 4 or 5 do not appear to generate temperatures sufficiently high to be destructive to known materials.
In other words, UFOs appear to prevent high aerodynamic heating rates rather than permitting a heating problem to arise, then surviving it with heat-resistant materials as is the case of the Shuttle whose surface temperatures can reach 1300ºC.
My background has been in solar energy conversion -- one of the true pioneers in this field of implementing appropriate energy technology. During the early days (circa the mid-70's), I experimented with drawing a vacuum on the solar collection devices; in essence, hermetically sealing the collector and pulling a vacuum within the box. What happened: I was collecting far more energy than was alleged to be available by the standards of academia.
By drawing a vacuum -- I had easily proven their thermodynamics standards were totally out of date, relative to the published assessments of the amount of solar energy being actually available for collection. UFOs would surely have to operate within an encapsulated environment -- much the same as my early, crude experiments with drawing a vacuum within solar collection devices. A simple tried and proven vacuum technique would achieve the desired thermodynamics results -- as evidenced by the effects of a standard vacuum bottle.
Hill's analytical approach is provided by an analysis of the economy of various flight-path profiles. It is shown that high-angle, high-acceleration departures on ballistic-arc trajectories with high-speed coast segments are more efficient than intermediate-level, horizontal-path trips. The power plant used in UFOs should not be too difficult to replicate, but will not be revealed due to our existing corporate/political system. Another typical nugget of information is the famous Ubatuba, Brazil magnesium fragments claimed to have originated from an exploded unidentified craft. (and) Since the only isotope separation on a significant scale in terrestrial manufacture is that of uranium, such a result must be considered at least anomalous, and possibly as evidence for extraterrestrial manufacture. Also, the inherent properties of gold - relative to space travel, is unique. I am, of course, suggesting the mining of gold by primitive societies ... throughout history, could well have been rooted to satisfy the needs, rather than the assumed wants s."

I'm in almost daily contact with Dr. J. Bond Johnson, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reporter, who shot the famous Roswell crash debris photographs in General Ramey's 8th Air Force office in Fort Worth, Texas on July 8, 1947. The Army Air Force had previously announced that they had captured a flying saucer. Johnson remembers being ushered into General Ramey's office alone by Colonel Dubose, and being shown the wrapped up debris.
Since General Ramey was not there, it was suggested that he unwrap the material that had just been flown in from Roswell. Johnson remembers unwrapping the material and putting the most exotic looking materials in the foreground, and the more mundane aluminum foil backed paper in the background. Col. Dubose even left the room leaving Johnson alone with the debris that smelled as if it had burnt or exploded. Johnson told me he remembers holding plastic like material similar to a key ring that he now owns. He does not believe this kind of plastic was available in 1947.
The Air Force's Roswell Report Fact Vs Fiction claims that early Mogul Balloon ballast containers were manufactured from a new plastic. This plastic however, turned out to be too weak for holding the lead ballast, that is slowly released from the Mogul Balloon train to reduce weight and keep the balloons up at altitude.
Major Jessie Marcel Senior and Junior had always maintained that the most exotic looking Roswell crash debris was an I Beam with hieroglyphic like symbols on it. According to Johnson, he and Ron Regehr, an aerospace engineer and member of MUFON in Orange County, CA. have viewed enhanced photos. Dr. Johnson claims 3-D type marking on the I Beam is observable. These symbols seem consistent with the Marcel's description of the debris and appear to prove the debris was not switched. Johnson cautioned that he is not a photo interpreter and is reporting what he and Ron Regehr see. Another piece of unknown metal like chrome trim appears in the photo. Many people have accepted the Air Force explanation tha of the debris is a military Radar Reflector.
Bob Durant writes: "I have examined with great care the 16 by 20 inch photographs taken by J. Bond Johnson in General Ramey's office, with particular emphasis on the material shown in the foreground of the photos. I find nothing inconsistent with the rest of the material shown in the photos, which is plainly the parts of a battered radar reflector. Similar examinations were done years ago by Roswell researchers, with the same result. In 1994 the Air Force studied these photos, and used the CIA photo interpretation laboratories to search for anomalies. None were found. My conclusion is that Dr. Johnson should publish a precise analyses, or stop wasting the time of serious researchers." Regards, Bob Durant.
I personally feel we are getting closer to truth and detailed analysis of the photographs will be needed by several different organizations. The photographs may now prove once and for all if the material is mundane or part of flying saucer. Enlarged photographs made from the original negatives from Star-Telegram Special Collections section of the University of Texas Library at Arlington, Texas are enroute to me. We intend to analyze the photographs with the best equipment available. It is apparent the controversy over Roswell will continue.
