MONTOUR FALLS A mother and daughter while playing softball saw a UFO on June 18, 1999, at 6:00 PM. The silver object was the size of a pea at arms length. It glinted silver in the setting sun as if spinning as it moved away towards the east. It had a textured surface that was faceted just like a disco ball. After five minutes, the object made a 90 degree turn to the north and accelerated out of sight in about a second. The second sighting of the silver object was by six witnesses from the Watkins Glen State Park swimming pool just before 6:00 PM. The size was a BB at arm's length. It gained altitude and headed east. The sky was clear again and the glinting was still the same. The duration of the sighting was about 3 minutes. The object again made a left 90 degree turn northward and accelerated away at tremendous speed. Thanks to NY MUFON Investigator, Bob Long.
STINESVILLE -- Lynn Taylor writes that she has received preliminary information regarding a multiple witness sighting that occurred Sunday, May 30, 1999, just after dusk. The sighting occurred over the White River, just west of Stinesville. Two brilliant white objects were observed coming down toward the witnesses. Objects were primarily white, although they were also emitting a rainbow of constantly changing colors. No sound could be heard coming from the objects. Objects have been spotted in this same area in the past. See: Thanks to Lynn Taylor
YUKON -- S. Ritter on June 28, 1999, at 10:15 PM writes, "I was at home in the backyard, and I was watching the night sky and spotted through binoculars a light heading west. I couldn't tell what shape this craft was. It looked like a yellow ball of light just flying through the sky, then the light faded in and out and then back in view again. Then it disappeared. It was not an airplane, nor a satellite, nor a falling star." Thanks to S. Ritter, Bbbritter.
MONTERREY -- Guillermo Alarcon reports that a UFO was recorded by TV Station Azteca on July 8, 1999. The station was testing the weather on the roof of the building in Monterrey, when a UFO (ovni) was observed by the camera man. He started to record the sighting live and the station broadcast the sighting live. The UFO had a shinning light due to the sun's reflection. It moved in a circle similar to the Mexico City video flyby!!! My friend works at the station and is attempting to obtain the film. Thanks to Guillermo Alarcon,
PARRAL - Luis C. Sanchez Perry Chilean Director Skywatch International reports that on June 12, 1999, in the town of "El Fiscal" sixty witnesses saw a pear shape UFO at 11:30 PM for an hour. It was twenty meters in diameter with a porthole. The UFO moved slowly over the roofs of houses materializing and dematerializing in front of witnesses including the police. The UFO group AION ( is investigating. COIHAIQUE - On May 31, 1999, at 11:30 PM, in the sector of Cerro Negro two hunters saw two orange balls of light fly at about 700 meters in altitude. The UFO flew in a very erratic Zigzag way. A hunter signaled the UFO a flash light, and in response one of the UFO's came towards them. They ran away as it came closer. At the same time my military friend Rodrigo Bravo saw an Air Force Otter aircraft fly over Coihaique three times appearing to conduct a radar search for the two UFO's. Thanks to Luis Perry,
NORTH ISLAND, NEW ZEALAND -- A meteor exploded in the sky on July 7, 1999, between the cities of Napier and New Plymouth. It created an eerie blue light and showered the earth with fragments from space at 4:15 PM
LAJAMANU -- A huge object perhaps a meteorite exploded above the Northern Territory, on Friday, June 18, 1999. It 'boomed' like an atomic bomb and that earth tremors were felt afterwards at 9:30 PM. 'It was this incredible blue and white flashing light that lit up the whole town. Thanks to Mella M. & Mitch Battros GRAFTON --Barry Taylor reports 17 single objects and 5 'cluster' groups on June 26, 1999, at 2:40 PM for fifty minutes. The self illuminated orange, blue, white and black UFOs flew slowly north. They were flying near the 4,000 feet cloud base traveling at various speeds. The 'cluster groups' ranged from 3 to 12 'spheres'. The movement within the 'cluster' was fascinating. A half hour of video was shot including a clear cluster. Thanks to Barry Taylor.
Nancy Talbot co-director of BLT Research reports new crop circles are being reported almost every day in Europe. England as usual leads with fifty, Czech Republic, Germany, and Holland follow. HOEVEN, Southern Holland -- Robert a gifted 19-year-old Dutch eyewitness claims that two crop circles were formed on June 7, 1999, at 12:15 AM, by a strange pink purple light. Robert's intuition told him that something was going to happen in the field behind his farm, so he looked out his bedroom window. He saw a small football shaped pinkish-purple light move ten feet above the ground toward his home. It moved to 60 yards behind his house and stopped over the spot where a snow crop circle was formed a couple of years ago. Robert said, "The light then started to elongate and to look just like a 30 foot in diameter aspirin or disc. As the cloud hovered it made a crackling sound. Electrical discharges exploded from the underside of the purple cloud for about ten seconds and suddenly stopped. Robert pulled on his pants and ran to the area and found a 30 foot circle and two foot circle nearby. He could feel the heat from the wheat field." Nancy says, her colleague biophysicist W. C. Levengood of Michigan hypothesizes that plants in some sampled formations were affected by numerous spinning plasma vortexes that contain microwave energies. The microwaves heat the plant cells, softening and collapsing the stems into the fluid patterns we have come to associate with genuinely mysterious formations. But Levengood does not know the source of the spinning plasma vortex. Robert feels this energy gives him the ability to heal. We may be dealing with energies completely misunderstood." Thanks to Nancy Talbott.
Tim Matthews writes: " UK Channel 5, on July 4, 1999, broadcast a program entitled "Billion Dollar Secrets." Correspondent Nick Cook of Jane's Defense Weekly ran the program. It supported the view that classified black projects are responsible for their share of the UFO evidence, and that the subject has been used by the military-industrial complex and its' intelligence allies for decades. The most interesting comment was from former Convair boss Bob Widmer who made a number of fascinating claims about his classified defense work with specific relation to the Top Secret "Kingfish" high Mach aircraft of the late 1950s. Not only did he say -- with an expert insider knowledge that has clearly had a profound affect on his personal and family life -- that the 'flying saucer' shape was seen to be the best, most perfect shape for his future aircraft, but that proposals for the Kingfish had moved along those lines. In a fascinating mirror of my own experience regarding FOIA material and classified documents dating back to the late 1940s and 1950s which, the various agencies claim have been destroyed. Widmer stated categorically that, "ALL material relating to his own classified projects had been similarly disposed of." This is how they operate; by going against all protocol and destroying documents that lead back to the many FT and disc projects of the past. It is also our experience -- and Nick Cooks' -- that the fear and pressure exerted by those tasked to maintain the near-impenetrable walls of secrecy and disinformation surrounding these projects ruins peoples' lives. They will do whatever it takes to maintain secrecy including creating a mountain of disinformation via the relatively simple seeding of something like the MJ-12 documents. Boyd Bushman from Lockheed Martin discussed antigravity craft/experiments. It is clear that the UFO subject has been controlled from the top since 1947. It appears the UFO community is a target test group for psychological warfare and black propaganda." Thanks to Tim Matthews. Editor's Note: We were able to obtain formerly classified information on the Silverbug Disc aircraft with the help of the Air Victory Museum. Our investigators also report on the black triangle aircraft. They are manned black aircraft that appear the size of commercial airliner with delta wings that use advanced jet power to fly in excess of Mach 3. They may be called Aurora or Senior Citizen. Several versions the craft have been seen over the North Sea, the Atlantic Ocean, and the New England coast. One was video taped this week over Scottsdale, Arizona.
The skeptic Phil Klass claims that DSP satellite's-engineer Ron Regehr hints that DSP has spotted ET craft. Ron Regehr a member of the Roswell Photographic Interpretation Team (RPIT's) was featured in the July issue of the Skeptics UFO Newsletter, published by Phil Klass. Klass writes: "Pro-Ufologist Ron Regehr--an engineer with Aerojet Electro Systems which produces the infrared sensors used on DSP satellites -- published a 67-page report in 1998 titled: "How to Build a $125 Million UFO Detector" which suggests that DSP satellites have detected ET craft. Because Regehr has access to classified DSP data, he must necessarily base his speculative and vague claims on unclassified data and published information from a variety of sources, ranging from an OMNI magazine article on (alleged) government UFO cover-up to an article on DSP detection of meteoroids in The New York Times.
In reality, most of DSP's infrared sensors that look down from its 22,000 mile high altitude operate at a wavelength approximately 2.5 microns so that the earth's atmosphere will heavily attenuate infrared energy emitted by military aircraft (unless flying at very high altitude), forest fires, electric power plants and other hot objects which would otherwise generate thousands of false alarms. If/when ET craft visit Earth, if they use propulsion systems which involve high temperatures, then they can be detected by DSP satellites prior to descending to low altitudes where the atmosphere heavily attenuates their infrared radiation. However, if ET craft use exotic propulsion techniques, such as "Zero Point Energy," as Joe Firmage believes, then they will NOT be detected by DSP's infrared sensors." Thanks to Phil Klass and Bond Johnson. Editor's Note: North Vietnamese Surface to Air Missiles (SAMs) also set off the sensors. Our newer sensors are doing a much better job at picking up UFOs. (At least one per hour.)
