- NEW JERSEY
- Some very strange things are happening
in Mullica Hill, NJ ten miles south of the Philadelphia Airport. Many
people are frightened by UFOs hovering a few feet above their large homes.
Three members of this family claim to have observed alien beings and their
craft at close range. MUFON Investigator Evelyn Gaulson reports that several
members of a local family, that may be abductees were shopping at the local
mall. One store uses blacklites for a soft purple glow to display a room
full of posters. When they walked into the room they were startled to
see they had silver fluorescence blotches on their arms and faces. The
blotches were so noticeable that others in the room remarked about them.
They were rather embarrassed and left the room. We can speculate the
fluorescence is caused by inter-action with the aliens. This is a normal
middle class college educated family that has not been hypnotized and appears
mentally alert. The silver fluorescence has been removed with Scotch tape
and is being tested. There is no known reason for this silver powder like
substance to be on the faces, arms and backs of the family members. Blacklite
bulbs can be bought for $3.00 and should be in the investigators tool kit.
Investigators may desire to spend some time in similar places and look
for fluorescence blotches on other people. A careful and casual discussion
may lead to further abduction revelations. My suggestion is not to use
UFOs or aliens in the discussion unless brought up by others. I have found
that being friendly and a little small talk helps before asking. "Have
you had any strange things happen lately? I saw some funny lights."
Sometimes this will get people talking.
- On June 8, 1998, Lauren Carissa DeMichiei
from Cherry Tree, PA reports sighting two objects in the northern sky
at approximately 11:00 PM. They were larger than first magnitude stars
and traveled at the same slow speed. There was no blinking lights or exhaust
coming from the lights. This tends to rule out jets or airplanes. The
size was too large for satellites. After about 40 seconds of flying in
a direct straight path, the first object shot up into the atmosphere and
disappeared. The second UFO followed and rose in the same place. Thanks

- Chief Walter Sheets, the Georgia MUFON
Director, reports on June 4, 1998, that an object with triangular light
configuration was reported. The lights were red, white, and blue about
size of full moon, moving back and forth very swiftly in the north and
east of Albany last Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights. No other details
at this time. The witness is a 43 year old retiree. An investigation will
follow. Thanks to Walter Sheets.
- Skywatch's Jim Hickman reported on June
10, 1998. "Last week, I had wanted to have seen my wife's sighting,
well last night I saw it. And I'll never wish for things like that again!
I was providing security for a medic-flight helicopter that had arrived
at the hospital that I work at in Elk City. I had a few minutes to starwatch,
so I checked out the sky. At about 10:40 p.m., central time, I observed
a small, not very bright object that appeared to be very high. Its angle
from the ground was about 70 degrees. It was moving west at a very fast
speed and turned extremely bright, brighter than the landing lights on
the helicopter that had just arrived. The object was white, star size,
and much brighter than the full moon. It appeared several orders of magnitude
brighter than any other stars. The object made a 120 degree turn to the
southwest, but done not display typical ballistic movement. It was a very
sharp course change. The object continued with the bright light through
the turn. Two seconds after the turn it the light started dimming and
turned off and faded to black. Total time of sighting was 10 to 15 seconds.
I have been skywatching for over 35 years, and I have previously observed
satellites. When I was seven, I was shown the first Sputnik satellite,
Iíve been following them ever since. This was definitely not a satellite,
but I have no idea what this object was. Thanks to Jim Hickman, VP Skywatch
- On Sunday, May 31, 1998, at 11:30 p.m.,
Texan Ufologist Mike Harman and his brother-in-law were on a skywatch near
Andrews, Texas (population 10,678) when they spotted a strange flash in
the sky. Andrews is on Highway 385 approximately 350 miles (560 kilometers)
west of Dallas. "The cloud cover had finally lifted, and we were
able to view the heavens again," Mike reported. After about 15 minutes
of skywatching, I noticed what I perceived as a flash in the western sky.
Then, there it was again. I grabbed my binoculars and started searching
the sky for what had caused this. I could not seem to get the binoculars
up to my eyes fast enough. So I watched and again I saw another flash.
Once I spotted the object, I noticed through my binoculars that the
object was glowing orange in color. It would gradually brighten until it
was as bright as the brightest stars in the sky, then return to its orange
glow. When it peaked at its brightest, it seemed almost to flash."
Mike estimated that the average time cycle between normal glow and "brightest
flash" was two seconds. The entire sighting "lasted about four
minutes." Thanks to Mike Hartman and UFO Roundup Vol. 3 #23, 6/7/98

- Mike Rogalski reports that on April 9,
1998, (?) two UFOs were involved in a near miss of an Air Western Airliner
over the San Bernardino Mountains. To confirm this story Mike contacted
Joshua Control (Edwards AFB ATC) concerning the close encounter. Mike
writes, "To reiterate, I was surprised that the Quality Control Officer
for Joshua Control would tell me that the UFOs were picked up by radar,
tracked as almost colliding with an Air Western airliner. The UFOs were
being chased by an F-15 out of Edwards Air Force Base, which was only left
in the cosmic dust, when he approached the craft. It just accelerated
out of sight. There were no log entries at Joshua Control. He just provided
a frank verbal acknowledgement of the incident. Apparently, the government
puts pressure on their air traffic controllers not to call any of these
incidents "UFOs" or their credibility suffers." Thanks

- On May 29, 1998, Sally Svenningson who
lives on River Road, Bancroft, Ontario writes. ëI was sitting in my
living room at 22:30 PM, and saw bright lights flashing across the sky.'
I ran outside and a V shaped object with bright lights flew by our house
and up the lake. My car lights and outside spot light went on and stayed
on. I have had sightings here before, but never at such a low altitude
or with lights being turned on. Thanks to ISUR and Sally Svenningson,

- On Monday, June 1, 1998, at 9:30 p.m.,
Christian K., his friends Daniel and Lisa, and five other youths were hanging
out at a beach on the Traunsee Lake in Gmunden, Austria. They "observed
a bright red-orange object across the lake near Grinberg." Gmunden
is just off the B-1 in the Oberosterreich region of Austria, approximately
264 kilometers west of Vienna. "My friends Daniel and Lisa saw it
first," Christian reported. "Strangely, nobody saw it before
or noticed how it got there. We were looking north- northeast from the
small port of Gmunden to the top of the Grinberg Mountain. It was a half-hour
after sundown, and the mountain was not illuminated by the sun."
"We first thought it was a helicopter. This seems impossible due
to its climb rate," which he estimated to be "six meters (20
feet) per second. "You can hear a helicopter at that distance, especially
if the engine noise is reflected by a mountain." "Then, when
it started climbing faster and faster, and was higher than the mountain,
you could see that it was not just one big light. It was about one meter
wide at arm's length. It "was almost round, just flattened a bit
at the top and the bottom, so that to us it was an oval just a little bit
wider than taller." Christian went home and arrived at 10 p.m., my
little brother was watching TV, and it was blank," with no signal.
The television had been malfunctioning for twenty minutes or a few minutes
after the phenomenon was first seen. Thanks to UFO Roundup Vol. 3 #23,

- DAYLIGHT DISC IN PARAGUAY
- South America's latest UFO encounter
took place Saturday afternoon, May 24, 1998, in the small nation of Paraguay,
just north of the capital city, Asuncion. Miguel Bustamente Saavedra was
spending his day off boating with several friends on the wide Rio Paraguay.
Suddenly, they saw a metallic gleam in the sky to the north, over the town
of Aceval. "I noticed something brilliant in the sky," Miguel
reported. "It was like a big mirror seen in the air. I thought it
was an airplane, but it wasn't because" the next moment "I saw
a metal-colored object in the air like an egg." "The object
was going gently up and down and from right to left. When it suddenly made
a move to the left and accelerated out of sight. Thanks to Tim Hagemeister
of NACOMM and UFO Roundup Vol. 3 #23, 6/7/98 Editor: Joseph Trainor.
- SOLAR WIND ACTIVITY INCREASING
- There appears to be a correlation between
heavy solar wind activity and the reduction in UFO activity. UFO activity
is down this year compared to 1997, '96 or '95. On my site at page: I
show a chart that details the Sun's solar activity. Major UFO activity
tends to avoid periods of heavy solar wind activity. Because we are headed
into the Solar Maximum, we can expect to see less UFO activity in the next
2 to 3 years. For UFO groups this might be a time of lean and lean budgets.
But there is always some UFO activity in each year. This monthly activity
tends to follow cycles controlled by the planetary alignments and solar
magnetic field. El Nino itself is also controlled by the Sun's cycles.

- ARE SOME ROD-LIKE UFOs ALIVE?
- On August 9, 1997, after departing from
Philadelphia a Swiss Air 747 flying over New York barely missed being hit
by a rod like UFO. The near miss has put the spotlight on rod shaped UFOs.
The objects are not like the typical "cigar" shaped UFOs that
have been reported throughout history. Jim Peters, the Assistant Director
of Colorado MUFON, has been part of a team that has studied this new type
of UFO. The have been found on the video tape footage of many researchers
such as Jose Escamilla. The first known Rod was videotaped in Midway,
New Mexico on March 19, 1994. At first, it was thought they were bugs
or birds flying close to the camera lens. The Rods are capable of flying
at very high speeds and appear to range in length from a few inches to
more than a hundred feet. They appear in shape similar to a long cigar
or telephone pole. Some look like spears or missiles with fin like appendages.
They are able to emerge or enter the ground without leaving a trace. They
move through the air like a fish swimming in water. Satellite cameras
are also starting to pick the Rods up. The most astounding facts about
the Rods is that they appear to have intelligence and may actually be alive!
Although, they could be a very advanced form of craft or electrical plasma
life forms, their appearance suggest they are not metallic and not mechanical.
Last week, a new bird species was found in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador
by Dr. Robert S. Ridgely, the Director of the Center for Neotropical Orinthology
in Philadelphia. It is possible that as remarkable as it sounds, another
new species or gigantic bird like creature has been discovered. Some Rods
have what appear to be "appendages" along their torsos resembling
Centipedes. These appear to be membrane-like fins that move in an undulatory
wave like motion along both sides of the fuselage or torso. Close up video
indicates there appears to be definite uniform undulations or movement
of the fins as the Rod moves through the air.
- POSSIBLE FLIGHT PROPULSION OF THE RODS
After reviewing hundreds of clips of the Centipede type Rods, MUFON's
Jim Peters, came up with the Rod's possible flight characteristics. He
states: "We were looking at still images of some of the Centipede
Rods that Bryan Williams in New Jersey had shot, and noticed that the "appendages"
appear to be "flapping" as the Rods pass by at extremely high
speeds. The motion begins at the front and undulates toward the tail.
Jim noticed a feather near a computer and picked it up making the point
that the appendages look like a super-thin series of feather-like appendages,
rather than thick protrusions or flaps as we thought previously. Perhaps
these things fly much like some fish that have a series of thin fins along
the torso. Looking at the atmosphere as a liquid ocean, maybe the Rods
evolved from the oceans and use this type of propulsion, (which is natural
to them), to glide them through the air effortlessly. In the ocean,
fish travel at extremely high speeds and are capable of making right
angle turns without slowing down. Nature defying gravity! Even huge sharks
travel at extremely high speeds and make quick darting turns effortlessly.
With this type of flapping and their serpentine or fish -- like movements
of their torsos; perhaps we are seeing "Sky Fish" in a variety
of species swimming through their oceans which we call the skies. In the
following examples we show you some of the new Rod stills and computer
composites of how they might fly. The "Ghost Knife fish present an
"undulatory Fin" that resembles the "fin-like" appendages
on the Rods!" Editors note: I encourage you to go to: www.roswell.rods.com
and make your own conclusions. We have reports that if damaged, the craft
can repair holes in flight. Thanks to MUFONís Jim Peters.
- ARE TRIANGULAR UFOs OURS OR
- In recent years large numbers of Flying
Triangles have been observed in the UK and US. Tim Matthews a British
Aviation expert wrote to Skywatch claiming some are ours and some our theirs.
Tim states, "There is no evidence to support the claims made that
the TR3A or TR3B or any remotely similar triangular aircraft are of ET-recovered
alien technology. The larger platforms are lighter-than-air vehicles that
use the latest composite materials in construction and which are used for;
covert insertion of troops, reconnaissance, moving of classified materials
and other unspecified missions. Such craft as the Aereon 340, Aereon 26,
etc. were on the drawing board in the 1960s. Smaller models were test-flown
before the whole thing was covered up in the late 1970s. Work undertaken
by various experts was classified by the NSA in 1976. The existence of
several triangular aircraft makes perfect sense only if you look at them
from the point of view of their possible use: -- dart-shaped reconnaissance
platform -- smaller triangular 'mini B-2'-- Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle
-- larger sensor platform/transporter -- stealthy fighters and bombers.
The suggestion that triangles are both alien and terrestrial in origin
is a cop-out and a failure to come to terms with the fact that there is
no evidence for recovered alien technology. The genesis of all these aircraft
were German and American and their roots can be traced back to the 1930s.
I suggest some historical study by UFO researchers to establish the actual
facts of the matter - or a discreet E-mail to me. All sensible questions
answered in as much detail as possible. Thanks to Tim Matthews, Lancashire
- Mark Cashman, MUFON's Assitant State
Director of Connecticut writes: "For what it's worth, the lack of
solid physical evidence in a context where it should be readily available
is what keeps me away from most abduction cases. However, I can offer some
suggestions. To implement research, you need to have a case which happened
very recently. * Undertake a search of the area looking for ground traces
or traces on the treetops. * Make sure the clothes they wore that night
have not been washed. If they have not, bag them and preserve them for
analysis. Also obtain a control sample of their normal clothing which
could not have been involved in an abduction. Look for unusual substances,
dust, stains, etc. You will want to work with a scientist who knows clothing
and fabrics for this. * If the witness claims that the entities entered
a house, take samples of any rugs that the entities may have crossed.
Take control samples from rugs in unaffected areas. Look for variations
in dust composition, presence / absence of dust mites, unusual substances,
microscopic changes in the fibers. An expert in carpets and their inhabitants
is essential for this work. * If the witness claims that the entities passed
through anything, try to obtain a sample of whatever they passed through,
and a control sample of an area distant from that but of the same material.
Have these samples analyzed for microscopic changes, burns, differences
in density or material characteristics, surface coatings, and radiation.
You will need a good materials scientist to help you with devising good
tests and controls.
- If the witness is willing, have blood
work done. Exposure to radiation leaves traces of some kind in the blood
for over a week. Also look for allergens and antigens in the blood - if
the witness has been exposed to alien substances, there should be some
activity in the blood. We need a good blood scientist with an open mind
who can help you devise appropriate tests. If the witness claims that
intercourse or genital / anal probing occurred, use of a standard rape
examination as soon after the event as possible is essential. The police
may be able to advise you as to the nature of such tests, and doctors which
can perform them. Be prepared for some awkward questions, however, unless
you have a police advisor who is familiar with the abduction literature.
Make sure the doctor, however, has no such familiarity. * Don't put much
credence in scars. There are too many potential sources for such things.
- * If a fetal removal is claimed, insist
on medical records from the witness gynecologist. All samples should be
gathered with two investigators present, and should be sealed in ziploc
bags. A sheet of paper should accompany each piece of evidence, with
the signatures of the investigators. Each time the evidence is opened,
two investigators should be present, should sign the sheet, and should
note on the sheet the reason for opening the bag. Determine how long the
material has been in its current location for both evidence and control
samples. Handle the samples with tongs, etc. Make sure the sample handling
devices are also sealed in ziplocs with their own evidence sheets. Only
use the same sample handlers with the same samples to avoid cross contamination,
and to ensure that any contamination from the sample handlers is kept
to a minimum and is traceable. If any of these tests show unusual results,
you should be prepared to submit the same evidence to a second lab / scientist,
who has NO familiarity with UFOs and who is not made aware of anything
except the specific tests you want performed. This comes as close as
you can probably approach a double-blind examination of the evidence.
Be very cautious in interpreting the results. Several similar results
from several independent cases will be required before any kind of conclusions
may be able to be drawn. Even differences between the primary and the
control sample will have to be carefully examined to ensure they are not
spurious." Thanks to Mark Cashman firstname.lastname@example.org
