- RHODE ISLAND
- HOPE VALLEY -- Dennis Bossack reports
on the evening of February 15, 1999, a large black triangular craft passed
overhead at 11:40 PM. It moved silently, swiftly and steadily. There
was no breeze, nothing. Phone 401-539-6733 P.O. Box 358 Hope Valley, RI
- DAYTON - A blue UFO was sighted on February
14, 1999, at 11:15 PM, hundreds of witnesses between the cities of Dayton
and Cincinnati in southwestern Ohio. Five people called radio station WLW
700 AM in Cincinnati and talked about the UFO on the talk show Sci-Zone.
They said it was a "blue-colored object with a wispy, luminous trail."
One caller was a retired police officer from Dayton, who spotted the object
in the northwest. Another caller was from Milford, Ohio who reported the
object was accompanied a 'flash' before its disappearance. Charles Stuart,
a Cincinnati UFO researcher who, witnessed the object at around 11:15 PM
Sunday night said. "I observed a bluish-white object descending vertically,
disappearing behind a tree-line to the north." It gave the impression
that it landed or impacted only a mile away. The light could have been
a large meteor or bolide passing through Earth's atmosphere at high altitude.
The light appeared to be the apparent size of a dime at arm's length.

- ELK CITY -- Skywatch reports that on
March 3, 1999, several witnesses reported seeing a flying object that was
spinning rapidly on its axis at 12: 35 PM.. It appeared to be mostly stationary
but had a wobble to it's spinning. The object was reflecting the sun,
but seemed to be yellow-gold in color. I noticed several contrails and
I am quite familiar with jet aircraft after 6 years in the Air Force.
This object was not an aircraft. It appeared to be the size of a match
head at arm's length. I kept the object in view for 5 minutes as it slowly
moved north till it was out of range. Thanks to Jim Hickman Skywatch International
- TUCSON -- James W. Bentley reports seeing
a UFO on February 2, 1999, at 10:30 to 11:00 AM. The object appeared to
be the same UFO as the one photographed over Nellis Test Range in Southern
Nevada in 1994. The UFO was composed of 4 spheres very close to each other,
possibly connected together. It was Grey metallic in color then changing
to a bright fiery glow then back to the metal color many times. A coworker
and I witnessed the object through binoculars over northern Tucson. We
watched for over ten minutes then it slowly moved east. There it stood
still, and then sped off to the north. 520-603-1364, 6635 E. Calle Herculo

- GROOM LAKE -- Bob Hetsko reports a friend
of mine put me in touch with an airline pilot who saw a UFO in June of
1998. He and his co-pilot both saw a strange object flying in formation
above them. They were flying from west to east at 40,000 feet and the
object was overhead. Its altitude was hard to determine, due the relatively
small angular dimension of the object. It was the size of a pea held at
arm's length. The object was largely invisible, but appeared for brief
periods, where it appeared as a plume of orange exhaust, or a cone of orange.
It did not move like any rocket, jet or aircraft that the two experienced
pilots had seen before. The movement was very erratic, and mostly back
and forth, tending to follow the airplane in general flight path. Several
times the object seemed to stop a little to the north of Nellis AFB. They
watched for over 20 minutes. I asked the pilot if it was reported? He
said it was not. He said it is frowned on to report anomalies over the
radio bands unless the parties know each other. The pilot, of course,
wanted to remain anonymous.
- LAKE FOREST -- John Bruns, 29, a machinist
reports that on February 22, 1999, he was looking out side and saw the
planets Mars and Jupiter at 8:20 PM. After looking at the planets he saw
something moving, but it wasn't an aircraft. There were two triangular
shaped UFOs with red and white lights around them. They were moving really
slow east toward the mountains. They made no sound at all. After I saw
them, I saw two military aircraft going after them. Obviously the government
knows but won't tell us. Can someone help me or tell me if they have seen
similar sightings in Orange County? My sister and I watched the craft
for ten minutes. Thanks to Ben Field firstname.lastname@example.org
- VAN NUYS -- General Contractor S. Windsor,
32, reports he was standing in his driveway on February 23, 1999, in the
San Fernando Valley 9:05 PM. My friend and his wife were standing next
to me talking and I said, "Look it's a shooting star!" But we
decided it did not really look like a shooting star. It did not have a
tail or streak following behind it. The object yellowish to orange in
color seemed to pulsate, get bigger and smaller as it shot across the horizon.
It moved north to south streaking across the sky covering the horizon
in about 5 seconds. It however did not vanish into the horizon, but seemed
to vanish just before. My friend saw it and agrees it was not a shooting
star. The object made no sound in the clear sky. Thanks to Ben Field BUFOD.
- KINGSTON -- Lanre Coke reports, strange
lights were seen by at least three people in a Central Village area on
February 28, 1999, at 10:30 PM. It was reported by a woman who called
a talk show and said that she had seen a strange bright light. It seemed
to light up everything and then in a few seconds it had disappeared. What
is remarkable about this is that I have a fellow co-worker who had experienced
the same thing about 18 months ago while driving to the country with a
friend. The were on a road that had no lights and then they said that
all of a sudden the whole area was lit up by this bright light. Not many
people here in Jamaica believe in UFOs and they all laugh when the topic
is being discussed. But it is as they say "It would be a waste of
space if we were the only intelligent life form in this universe"

- LIMA -- On February 9, 1999, just before
midnight, witnesses from the port of Pisco, 300 kilometers south of Lima,
watched a large anomalous light emerge from the Pacific Ocean. The UFO
was described by witnesses as a supply ship or mothership rose into the
air, banked sharply to the right and flew east heading for the shore.
The following evening February 10, residents of Chorrillos, a suburb of
Lima reported seeing luminous discs "flying at a low altitude."
In Jesus Maria, another Lima suburb, residents poured into the plaza to
watch the overflight that was again videotaped. Within the hour, another
squadron of luminous UFOs flew over the seaport city of Callao, 13 kilometers
west of Lima. By now, the word had spread, and a crowd of about 2,000
people witnessed the overflight of Callao. "Neighbors in the zone
went outside of their homes in the hope of seeing the OVNIs (Spanish acronym
for UFOs) again." At 11:00 PM both Channel 2 and 5 Television Panamericana
stunned all two million residents of Lima with a special 40-minute broadcast
on the UFO flap. The show aired video footage of the objects flying over
Jesus Maria and Callao. Two luminous UFOs flying eastward towards the
Andes from Ica, 400 kilometers south of Lima. Rumors spread about the
presence of an undersea base a dozen kilometers offshore. On February
12, more UFO reports came from the desert northeast of Lima as residents
watched the UFOs pass overhead. According to Dr. Virgilio Sanchez Ocedo
the next day a startling videotape was shown on Channel 5 of a saucer skimming
low over the rooftops and palm trees of Callao. (See the newspapers El

- UNITED KINGDOM GIANT CYLINDER
- GLOUCESTERSHIRE -- On February 8, 1999,
businessman Miles J. was relaxing in his seat aboard a British Midlands
A-310 Airbus jetliner, when he spotted something odd outside his window.
He was flying home from Belfast, Northern Ireland, and the plane had just
begun its descent into London's Heathrow Airport. Miles said, "I was
seated on the right side of the Airbus when I saw a large, cigar-shaped
UFO, at very high altitude. The very large, distinct, big cylindrical
object was above the highest cloud layer. It seemed to be stationary and
was 15 degrees deviation from the aircraft's flight path." "As
the Airbus began to descend, the object remained fixed in altitude at 45,000
to 50,000 feet and was obscured by high clouds. The object was white,
long, and cylindrical, with no obvious features. It was pencil thin, with
white rounded ends." Miles stated that he believes his plane was
"a bit south of Birmingham" when he spotted the UFO. It would
have been visible from 25 to 10 minutes before landing. The total time
in view was 15 minutes until the final descent into the clouds."
Mile's estimated the craft was 50 miles away over Gloucestershire near
Cheltenham. Thanks to Joseph Trainor UFO Roundup Vol. 4 #8, 2/22/99, Masinaigan@aol.com.
Editors Note: When I was in the Air Force, London Control asked us to
intercept a UFO about 30 miles from this sighting. London Control had it
on radar above Stonehenge. We dove on the UFO and I got one of the largest
radar returns I had ever observed on my radar. When we got close it looked
like a night shuttle launch into space. I've been chasing them ever since.
- SCOTLAND UFO VIDEO
- STIRLING -- Videotape of dozens of silver
orb-like objects were shot by a road worker known only as Brian. Last
December, Brian shot five and a half hours of video from which about 15
minutes is considered particularly impressive. Investigator Russel Callaghan
told reporters, "We're convinced we've got something extremely unusual.
What we've seen at Stirling is one of the most convincing cases I have
ever handled. Callaghan said. "Brian is as genuine as the day is
long and wasn't out to make a million. He is certainly not a fraud or
a con-man." Callaghan reportedly questioned Brian for more than eight
hours before arriving at his conclusions. The Daily Record and Sunday
Mail report said that Brian's video is being "hailed as 'the most
significant UFO footage ever recorded in Britain.'" Callaghan said,
"Some of the maneuvers and detail on the 15-minute tape were stunning
and resembled the activity recorded in the skies over Mexico," he
said. A Scottish voice is heard on the video saying "Crazy, crazy
stuff" as a UFO appears to skim through the clouds at high speed.
Brian turned his tape over to the UFO Magazine editor Graham Birdsall,
who said Brian does not own any sophisticated video editing equipment.
He added "Brian has neither the resources nor inclination to perpetuate
a hoax." Thanks to Jeff Rense (www.sightings.com) and Britain's Daily

- NORTHERN IRELAND
- ARMAGH -- Alan Sewell from The 'Irish
Centre for UFO Studies reports their Program for Extraterrestrial Intelligence
Research (PEIR) studies have shown that out of 400 reported UFO sightings,
120 were in the far southwest region near Bantry. County Cork in the Bantry
area is similar if not more active than Bonnybridge, Scotland. This area
is considered the third most active UFO area in the world. This group
attempts to predict when Extraterrestrial Intelligence events are likely
to take place. This research is an alternative to the international government
sponsored SETI Program operating in other bands of the electromagnetic
spectrum. The research has enabled a theory to predict when close encounters
are likely to occur at given locations in the future, based on data from
past events. A scientific study of UFO Close Encounter (CE) Events has
revealed that such CE activity is satisfactorily explained as being an
important element of an astronomical surveillance of the earth by technologically
advanced space craft. On June 24, 1997, the PEIR team described the process
and dynamics behind the ET activities on a Television Program, 'We Are
Not Alone.' This program was shown in Europe and the USA. ICUFOS and PEIR
announced to the public through radio and television interviews that for
the very first time in the world they were able to successfully predict
when UFOs would occur for Sky Watchers. The predictions were successful
and resulted with both public and the PEIR team witnessing sightings that
are published in a special report for that period. Thanks to Irish Center

- ALICANTE COUNTY -- We where driving up
to my house when all of a sudden my car just stopped. My two friends and
I where laughing at first, but then we noticed that our cellular phone
also shut down. The digital clock and everything electrical in the car
was inoperative. We stepped out of the car because we heard a humming
sound. We looked up and saw three lights shaped in a triangle. Suddenly
it flew off and our electrical systems became operational again. We could
switch on our cellular phone and everything in the car worked fine. The
weirdest thing of it all is that a colossal big triangular shaped thing
was directly above us, but we didn't feel any pressure or wind keeping
that thing up there. It took off at incredible speed without producing
any sound. The UFO hovered at about 30 meters above us for ten seconds.
All our watches and cellular time where exactly 5 minutes behind, and
we know this because we phoned the time service right after the incident.

- GRAAFF-REINET - The Evaluation Center
For UFO Reports (ECUFOR) has completed its preliminary investigation of
footage of alleged UFOs. Testimonies of primary witnesses have been obtained.
On December 27, 1998, at about 3:00 PM, the Laubscher family observed
between 8 to 10 objects moving rapidly in a northerly direction over Graaf-Reinet.
This is a small town situated some 260 km north of Port Elizabeth. Mr.
Laubscher managed to capture a few minutes of this incident on video.
The objects appeared somewhat roundish triangular and seemed to move in
a group. Occasionally one or two would stop and the others would circle
around. This motion repeated itself a few times. While moving the
objects were shinny gold in color but when stationary appeared to switch
to red and then to blue. The size of these objects was judged to be roughly
4 to 5 times that of a Boeing aircraft at the same altitude. The group
had been in view for a few seconds when another much larger object traveling
at very high speed in the same flight path proceeded in a northerly direction
through and past the group. The larger object appeared gold in color and
was basically spherical. It traveled at a constant speed and did not change
color. Its size was estimated to be roughly 8 times that of a Boeing at
the same altitude. The group of smaller objects then followed the larger
sphere and they all disappeared behind some high clouds near the horizon.
These clouds were roughly 2,000 feet. There was no visible residue or
jet stream and no noise. The video indicates the presence of at least
three objects zooming in and out of focus. There is substantial good footage
for evaluation. Thanks to T. Farley and N. Herbiet ECUFOR P.O. BOX 7784

- DR. RICHARD HAINES NASA SCIENTIST
- I have a favor to ask of you. I am embarking
on a new study of certain UFO evidence which deals only with cases in which
the aerial phenomenon seen was highly asymmetric, unusual, strange-appearing.
I am not interested in discs, saucers, etc. But each case must contain
a lot of eye-witness details about the phenomenon (for example, flight
trajectory, speed(s), acceleration(s), lighting pattern(s), rays, radiation,
landing, sounds, EM interference, and such. A second requirement is that
the eye witness must have made one or more drawings of the phenomenon that
are also available. Artistic ability is not important, but labeled details
on and around the object/phenomenon are valuable. Mail material to: Dr.
