- IMAX THEATERS SHOWING NASA FILM WITH UFOs
- CAPE KENNEDY, WASHINGTON DC - The huge IMAX movie theaters
are showing a film called "Mission to Mir." One scene shows the
US Space Shuttle near the Russian Mir space station with three disc shaped
UFOs approaching Mir. Calls to NASA by MUFON's distinguished Ernest Jahn
have failed to confirm the UFOs. The NASA footage shows two unknown objects
fly slowly past the Mir and the third UFO stops and appears to observe
the space station. The movie features Astronaut Sharon Lucid aboard the
Mir. Those who have seen the film insist these are not ice crystals but
some unknown space ships. Susan Creden the Founder and Director of the
Florida UFO Research & Study Group at Vero Beach, FL is sending me
a copy of the film for review. This film was obtained by a free lance
researcher and may also be the same one show at the Leeds UFO Conference
in England. Barry Taylor from Australia also wrote to tell me this is
a wonderful film and it's not ice crystals but UFOs.
- SOUTH CAROLINA DISK
- GOOSE CREEK - On October 7, 1999, a school teacher was
taking her dog for a walk and noticed a row of blue-white lights up in
the sky. She thought it might be a plane until she realized it was not
moving. It stayed in one spot in the sky for about ten minutes. The sun
was just coming up at 6:45 AM. The UFO was shaped like a hamburger with
a row of circle lights across the middle. There were sirens and lights
flashing, so I thought the police knew about it and were looking at the
same thing. I got my daughter so she could see it too and she called the
family next door. We all watched it ascend straight up without any noise
and change to a diamond shape. The next morning I looked up in the same
spot and there it was again, but higher. It started coming straight down
and wobbling side to side. I called the police to report it and when the
officer arrived it had moved back up higher into the sky. He said, it looked
like a star to him. It is very frustrating to not have people believe
you. I'm just glad the neighbors saw it too. Thanks to NUFORC and Peter
- UFOs ARE BACK IN TENNESSEE
- DANDRIDGE - Following a five-day hiatus, UFOs returned
to the small town of 1,540, offering two nighttime viewing experiences.
According to eyewitness Patricia G., the UFOs returned at 2:00 AM on Wednesday,
October 20, 1999. She reported, "The UFO was in the northwest sky.
He was a little lower than usual and, as I noticed the pulsating and flashing
of the brilliant colors, he sank lower, and the trees blocked my view.
This was no airplane. It was the same light in the sky we have been watching
all year." Several UFOs turned up in Dandridge again on October 16,
1999. Patricia added, "Tonight from 8:30 to 9:00 PM, there were five
UFOs that I could see. They were in their usual position in the northwest
sky. Four of them were scattered, and the one to the northeast was very,
very bright. There was one in the southwest sky of the same intensity.
I can't understand for the life of me why others are not reporting these
things." Dandridge is located 23 miles east of Knoxville, Tennessee.

- FLORIDA FLYING TRIANGLES
- TAMPA - I phoned MUFON State Section Director Lorraine
Gerber to determine the status investigation of the September 7, 1999,
UFO sighting. Fox Channel 13 showed a video of a UFO on the 10:00 Nightly
News. The two anchors gave a fair and honest appraisal of the UFO. Lorraine
had some military personnel examine the film and they felt it showed a
triangular shaped craft banking in a turn. The film can be viewed at www.filersfiles.com.
- CASEY KEY - On October 10, 1999, A large triangular shaped
craft flew from horizon to horizon as observed from the stern deck of a
motor vessel at 10:30 PM. The witness is a Vietnam vet, pilot and captain
of motor vessel. When sitting on the stern deck of my motor vessel I observed
a black triangle craft pass over and through my field of vision. Five
bright white lights were visible on each arm aspect on the craft the size
and shape of the craft was evident as it continued to cover clouds and
star fields. No noise was heard. The sighting lasted 30-60 seconds.
Thanks to NUFORC and Peter Davenport.
- NEW JERSEY ABDUCTEE
- CLIFTON - Henri a possible abductee sent this message
concerning his missing time on October 20, 1999. Henri states, "Something
happened last night." I left with sensations on my back and neck as
if something was lifting me. I went out the back way of my apartment in
the middle of last night, different from the direction I was taken from
last time. That is all I remember." Sometimes I see a great deal more
including craft. At other times hardly anything.
- OHIO FLYING TRIANGLE
- ELYRIA - On October 1, 1999, a triangle shaped object
with 12 lights was observed moving very slowly at low altitude at 4:40
AM. The object had three lights right at the very tip, shaped like a "V."
There were three more lights on each side of the "V." None of
the lights blinked. The two wing's tip lights would change color. The
witness stated, "The blueish-gray object was moving very slowly, with
a low rumbling sound and stopped over our house." It was the size
of a football field but it blended with the sky. The stars were so bright
tonight, when it passed over you couldn't see the stars. It paused over
our house, and then kept moving very slowly southwest. Thanks to Peter
- ARKANSAS UFO INVESTIGATION REVEALS A PRANK
- After further investigation the September 3, 1999, encounter
by Mike and Henry appears to be false. Henry claims he saw the head of
a grayish white entity 4 to 5 feet tall outside. They went outside and
both saw four flashing colored lights in the sky on a hovering triangle
shaped craft. Investigator JoAnne Scarpellini has learned from Billy Dee
of UFOSSI that Mike's father who was very reluctant to talk and didn't
say much more than Mike is a pathological liar. Among the things I found
were Mike had told UFOSSI that he is 34 years old and veteran of military
service. He is in fact 16 years old, confirmed by the man with whom he
lives. Henry the other witness is 17 years old and is very easily influenced
and led. He will instantly agree with anyone about anything. It appears
this case is most likely a prank by the two teen agers. Thanks to JoAnne
Scarpellini and Billy Dee UFOSSI@ufossi.org email@example.com. Editor's
Note: The initial reports carried in these files are followed up by in-depth
investigations whenever possible. Occasionally we turn up hoaxes. In
most cases these pranks are perpetuated by teen agers. I usually avoid
carrying teenage reports for that reason. There is an alarming tendency
for our teenagers to lie.
- LOVELAND - Morgan Clements Director, of the World Wide
UFO Reporting Center writes, "We are working on a unique possible
abduction case with an experiencer who has been branded with a special
undeniable mark on her thigh." On September 21, 1999, the witness
reported very strange dreams that were a little too real to be dreams.
The witness states, "Almost every night I get a very strange feeling
that I am going to be abducted, but have not ever been before to my knowledge."
In my dream I am in a very dark place that looks like the field about
one half a mile from my house. I see a landed alien ship. I blink my
eyes and the next thing I know I am in a silver ship. An extremely bright
light was pouring from it as if it were liquid-light. Inside there was
a bunch of TV monitors that display images of what seemed to be various
sections of the interior of the ship. The creepiest thing I saw was an
alien with large oval shaped black eyes wearing a shiny blue suit. He
seemed to paralyze me. He was lying on the floor and he didn't have eyelids
so I couldn't tell if he was knocked out or just resting. I continued
exploring the ship and saw a TV monitor that showed the alien on the floor
had disappeared. I saw some movement through the wall of the ship and
realized that it was that same being! After that everything is a freaked
out blur. In the morning and I felt terrible and found two new scratches
on my lip. Thanks to M. Clements firstname.lastname@example.org
- Ron Hannivig writes, 'The above cited dateline of Loveland,
immediately rang a bell.' I passed through this region back in August.
Loveland appears to be located within Larimer County, Colorado -- the
specific region of a very recent, rather bizarre missing person case that
got a lot of national attention. The case did not make much sense to begin
with. A three-year-old boy somehow got lost in the Larimer County wilderness,
and from the last report I heard, the body was never recovered. One report
actually claimed this lost three year old had asked hikers, if there were
any bears or other wild animals about? This is indeed odd, since there
are not too many boys, especially of that age, wandering alone in the woods.
Additionally, the report's provided timeline (Sept. 21, 1999) is extremely
interesting, relative to this boy's disappearance. There were more than
enough searchers hot on the trail of this missing boy to have quickly found
him, his body ... or some parts of his remains -- given the short distance
any three-year-old could wander in that sort of rough terrain. Again, from
what I currently understand: This remains a missing person case, and we
seem to be dealing well within a reasonable window in time (of 10 days,
perhaps). Thanks to Ron Hannivig Simpson, PA. Editor's Note: I noticed
that when there is a flurry of UFO reports there are often missing persons
- NEW MEXICO POLICE CHASE UFOs
- GALLUP - Reporter Jim Maniaci reports, | Not one, but
two Navajo police officers chased an unidentified flying object seen in
the night sky over northern McKinley County last week. According to Capt.
Daniel K. Thomas, acting chief of police of the Navajo Department of Law
Enforcement, Sgt. Tommy Rogers tried to reach the unusual light. But each
time either he or Officer El Reno Henio approached it, the mysterious object
would take off and run away from them. Thomas, who is commander of the
NDLE's Crownpoint Police District, said his men described the UFO as a
circular disc that projected a cone of light to the ground, with the light
being exceptionally bright at the bottom of the cone, where it met the
ground. He said reports describing the sighting were received from residents
of Bicenti Chapter, Dalton Pass and Standing Rock, which are north and
west of Crownpoint and east and north of Gallup. The first report Monday,
October 4, from the NDLE came from Henio, who was headed toward Tohatchi
when he first spotted the light around 8:00 PM. On Tuesday, Navajo police
officers added to the original report, noting that Rogers had also seen
the light. Numerous other calls were received by dispatchers at Crownpoint,
and the lights also were seen in the Window Rock area. After two hours,
the UFO moved off and disappeared. http://www.navajos.com/
- "Missile Intercept Apparently Mistaken as UFO"
Jennifer Canaff of the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization has told
the "Gallup Independent" that a missile launched from Vandenberg
Air Force Base on the California coast coincided with the time a UFO sighting
was reported by Navajo tribal officials and others, at 8:00 PM October
2. It was a historic launch from Vandenberg -- the first successful intercept
of a ballistic missile warhead, Canaff said. A Minuteman-2 missile was
the target. And before its warhead reentered Earth's atmosphere, an interceptor
rocket destroyed the Minuteman over the Pacific Ocean.
- CURIOUS MOON FLASHES AND CLOUDS
- Distinguished researcher Joseph Stefula who is now healing
well from surgery sends this report: A new look at observations by the
American satellite Clementine show that a small area on the Moon's surface
darkened and reddened in April 1994. Why this happened remains a mystery.
For hundreds of years, people have reported seeing flashes, short-lived
clouds and other brief changes on the Moon's surface. But astronomers have
never been able to confirm the sightings. "The events were observed
on many occasions, but most astronomers don't believe in them," says
Bonnie Buratti of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
On 23 April 1994, around a hundred amateur astronomers reported seeing
a darkening of the Moon, lasting 40 minutes, near the edge of the bright
lunar crater Aristarchus. At the same time, the US Department of Defense's
Clementine satellite was mapping the lunar surface. Intrigued by the amateur
reports, Buratti's team has taken a close look at the Clementine data to
see if the satellite also recorded the event. Sure enough, they found that
the crater looked redder after the amateur reports. Thanks to Joe Stefula,

- DAN SMITH GIVES HIS VIEWS ON THE UFO PHENOMENON
- Celebrated researcher Dan Smith writes, 'I am hearing
a bunch of hardware people talking to each other.' This phenomenon is
not about hardware. It is about the intercourse between cosmic and human
intelligence. The appropriate segments of the intelligence community *are*
very concerned with ufologists, not for their observations of 'hardware,'
but as canaries breathing the cosmic methane. When the ufologists fall
off their obsession with hardware, it is time to clear the decks. The
Powers-that-Know do what they can to perpetuate your adolescent infatuations
with the 'mechanical' end of this phenomenon. At the same time they are
willing to play footsie with those of us working the 'business' end of
it, that is to say the psychological cutting edge of this phenomenon.
So be paranoid. Your grip on the perch is gradually being loosened. When
you fall off, it will not be gradual. : "No one has gotten a handle
on the phenomenon, and until someone does, the policy people see very little
to be gained by stirring the pot. The ball remains in the court of the
ET's. It is still their show. What we know mainly is that any unilateral
action on our part, particularly of a military sort, has been shown to
be counterproductive." Thanks to Dan Smith http://www.clark.net/pub/dansmith/contents.html
- GEORGIA UFO IN FORMER USSR
- TBILISI - On October 7, 1999, a UFO was sighted over
the capitol of Georgia. The UFO was videotaped and photographed. The UFOs
were first sighed by police on patrol who notified the local newspaper.
The local newspaper staff went out to investigate and at first found nothing,
Then they noticed deep-leaden-fire coloring the northern sky. To the east
in the blue sky a strange object with a huge human face was observed with
eyes and nose, that were like a fire color. All this was being videorecorded
and suddenly the camcorder stopped working. The UFO was a bent disc shaped
form. When the camera zoom was used a disc and small blue objects were
visible. On a second photo the objects-modules" are flying out on
another course. Thanks to: (Kutovoy, Anatoly) Zaza Edilashvili <email@example.com

- CANADA MANY NEW CROP CIRCLES APPEAR
- EDMONTON, ALBERTA - In a phone call with eminent scientist
Nancy Talbot I learned of a new series of spectacular crop circles found
in barley fields near Edmonton. One had seven large circles and the lay
of the radial extends out from the center of the circle towards the edges.
Along the outer edge the lay of the barley is counter clockwise on the
ground with the other barley laid on top. Seventy to eighty percent of
the ranchers Nancy talks to voluntarily provide sighting information on
strange lights in the sky. In addition, their tractor batteries fail,
and their cattle behave abnormally during the time when the crop circles
are being formed. MIDALE ñ On October 8, 1999, pilot John Erickson
found a new formation of crop circles two miles south of Midale, Saskatchewan.
Three separate farms had formations that looked like Indian medicine wheels.
This is the sixth formation of crop circles found in Midale this year.
A Geiger counter placed in the field stopped working during the investigation,
due to the drainage of the battery. A strong magnetic field will drain
batteries. The formation was found in a wheat field and consisted of three
circles close together in a straight line about 20 feet apart. The largest
circle is approximately 60 feet in diameter, the second about 40 feet,
and the third about 20 feet." "The smallest circle is a swirled
lay that ends in a straight 'radial' type lay out to the edge of the circle."
The other circles have the usual swirled lay pattern." In another
field in Texas, videocameras have failed when aimed toward the crop circle.
While the camera is operating and turned away from the crop circle the
video picture will clear and the camera will work normally. This phenomena
has also occurred when aircraft fly over the crop circles. In one case,
developed photographic film appears to show something that appears like
a craft with port holes, but nothing is visible to the eye at the time
the photos were taken. Thanks to Nancy Talbot BLT Research.
- US WANTS RUSSIAN HELP IN TRACKING UFOs AND
- The United States has proposed helping Russia complete
their huge missile tracking radar site in Irkutsk, Siberia. The US government
claims that it is worried that Iran or North Korea may attempt to launch
missiles against Russia or the US. Cooperation could be beneficial to
both countries. The Russian radar is oriented eastward and covers the
area from the North Pole, the Pacific and south to Korea. The Clinton
Administration is trying to keep Russia as an ally in preparations for
shooting down missiles that could be launched from the middle east or North
Korea. This technology would also be useful in tracking and shooting at
UFOs. The US government has also proposed that the Russians and the US
share satellite tracking data on the trajectory of missile launches. The
government announced that both Russia and the US have a common interest
in guarding against attacks from rogue states. The Russians and the US
have shared some data in the past. The US is now preparing to build a
defensive system with 100 missile interceptors based in Alaska and another
100 in the US. Changes are needed in the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty
to allow this system. The government claims it is willing to go quite
far in providing the Russian's with advanced technical data in exchange
for changes in the treaty. The Soviets were working on an advanced plasma
based antimissile system that seemed very promising prior to their forming
a new government. The key question is this alliance based on the threat
of nations of Earth or from other powers?
- When President Reagan first proposed his SDI program
he stated in an address to students at Fallston High School on December
4, 1985. In his private discussions with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev
at last months Geneva summit, he noted that 'We're all God's children.'
"I couldn't help but say to him just think how easy his task and mine
might be in these meetings that we held if suddenly if there was a threat
to this world from some other species from another planet outside in the
universe, Reagan said the president went on to say that such an event would
force himself and Gorbachev to forget all the little local differences
that we have between our countries and they would find out that we really
are all human beings here on this earth together. Well, I don't suppose
we can wait for some alien race to come down and threaten us, Reagan added.
But I think that between us we can bring about that realization.
- Since 1975, the USA and USSR have a Bilateral Agreement
to Reduce the Risk of Nuclear War between the two nations. Article 3 states,
"The parties undertake to notify each other immediately in the event
of detection missile warning systems of unidentified objects or in the
event of signs of interference with these systems or with related communications
facilities. if such occurrences could create a risk of outbreak of nuclear
war between the two countries."
