Once again at Christmas time the UFO reports have taken a major nosedive from over 400 a month to less than a hundred in December. It appears the UFO occupants have gone on a holiday or people are just too busy to report them. Even so several good sightings were reported from Georgia, California, and China. The New Year came in with spectacular fireworks displays from around the world and UFOs were sighted in Italy and the Philippines watching the celebrations. Congratulations to the US and Russian military experts who worked diligently to avoid any Y2K nuclear disasters. It appears the world came through relatively unscathed from any Y2K problems. For the Chinese this is the year of the dragon when great turbulent change often occurs. The year has started off with a series of UFO sightings that have been wildly publicized throughout China. UFO's could be described as flying dragons with short wings breathing fire. These UFOs indicate that cosmic forces are at work, not unlike those that defeated communism in the Soviet Union. The Falun Gong members who are strong believers in UFOs continue to be arrested, while several million Christians remain in jail. The attraction of capitalism versus communism indicates change as well. It is amazing that the Chinese government has allowed the 500 reported sightings in 1999 to be published in its news media. The military often scrambles fighters to intercept the UFOs.
The future century promises significant changes. There are important indications of a warming trend in the weather with the massive melting of ice in Antarctica. There is a trend towards one world government versus the hundreds of nations that exist today. One advantage of world government is that there would be little need for the military unless they were fighting against the military forces of another world. A whole series of new technologies are being developed that will change the world for the positive. Much of this new technology seems to explain many of the science used aboard the UFOs. Nanotechnology or the miniaturization of computers is occurring at a tremendous pace. Now, you can now wear a tiny cell phone on your collar. Your wristwatch may be your new computer. Theoretically within this century you can wear your automobile. It comes as a suit of clothes. When you need your car, it literally grows up around you. Tremendous changes in medicine are also coming with the unraveling of the genetic DNA code. It turns out we are a combination of some 180,000 DNA codes. Each one is different and composed of various genetic building blocks. It is taking years for powerful computers to unwrap the unbelievably complicated codes. I suggest that we are not the result of pure chance. All living organisms have a similar coding indicating a designer, engineer, biochemist, or the Creator was at work. A single cell is more complicated than the city of New York. Most religions claim that their God created them. For example, the ancient Indian Vedic documents claim that earthly humans descend from higher human like beings from other planets. It appears that science and religion may become more in agreement with each other during the next century.
GLASSBORO -- My husband and I had a strange experience just before Christmas. On Saturday we received a call from our son who called at 5:10 PM and talked for a few minutes. We left the house to go grocery shopping at 5:20 PM. It takes about 9 minutes to get to the Shoprite grocery store. We entered the store at about 5:30 PM and did our usual shopping. At one point I heard two men behind the meat counter talking about UFO's. Just before we checked out I bought ice cream. We pulled the carts to the check out counter, and I started putting the groceries on the conveyor belt. When I put the ice cream on the belt it spilled over. Strangely, the ice cream had melted. We were surprised that it had happened, because we had picked it up last. The cashier told me to get another one, so I did. We took the groceries to the truck and loaded the groceries in it. A friend pulled up in his car and we talked for about 15 minutes and then we left. It was only about 25 degrees and we were freezing so we didn't talk long. We went straight home and when I got into the house I looked at the time, and I just couldn't believe it, it was 11:00 PM. How could 5 hours have passed in an hour? It was impossible, no way were we in that store for 5 hours. We checked all our watches, times, answering machine, and Shoprite surveillance cameras. There is no explanation for the missing time. Editors Note: I have been getting many similar reports of missing time. The people involved have no memories that can account the missing time, but are positive it is gone. Thanks to Evelyn G.
YUCCA VALLEY -- Patrice Erwin writes, "My mother got a pretty good look at a low flying object on January 2, 2000, at 9:30 PM. She swears that it was not a meteor, but a low flying "football" shaped silver gray ship. It was traveling south in a straight line as slow as a small plane would fly. It had a bullet shape with a tail of bright orange fire. The fire emitting from back was half the size of the vessel and a solid mass of fire with no sparking. It's hard to tell how large it was since she doesn't know its distance. The nose and body shaped was shaped like a football, but the rear part seemed to be rounded where the fire was coming out. (As if you had cut the football 3/4 down so it was rounded.)" It was reported on the news as a left over meteor from a recent meteor shower. It moved northward very slowly toward San Diego. It made a very low deep sounding hum, like an idling diesel truck. The object was reported to the FAA by aviators, ground observers and various news stations. The reports were made to our local radio station at around 9:30 PM, and were reported in the Los Angles basin around 10:00 PM. There were numerous sightings around this region. The FAA was unable to track anything on it's radar probably because the object was flying very low. We live in Yucca Valley, it is 30 miles from Palm Springs, near the 29 Palms Marine base. The idea that "we're not alone" has always fascinated me. Thanks to Patrice Erwin
LANCASTER - Mike Rogalski formally of NASA, writes that on January 2, 2000, my girlfriend, her son, and I saw an impressive aerial display of objects, seen frequently in this area just a few miles from the Lockheed Skunks Works. Three bright fluorescent green objects shared the same relatively flat trajectory through a short arc of about 15 degrees across the sky 9:32 PM. Traveling from the north to south they disappeared in short succession, one after the other, after displaying a yellow tail of light. There was no visible origin seen, such as a rocket burnout, or any noise heard. The entire brilliant, eye-grabbing sighting lasted not more than 15 seconds. We estimate the objects were a mile away and about 2,000 feet up. Speed at that distance was estimated at 300-400 mph. The bright green dot-like objects could be seen individually in the beginning, but blurred into a green, then yellow tail. For those familiar with the area, it was estimated to be traveling down Route 14 at 20th Street west. I have seen four of these sightings, three with north to south trajectories. One had a west orientation directly overhead significant enough to scare my teenage daughter who was present at that sighting. No details of the objects could be seen. These objects have been reported on successive nights traveling in opposite trajectories, making a meteor shower unlikely. Thanks to Mike Rogalski. Editor's Note: Both of these sightings were at the same time within a 100 miles of each other.
WAYCROSS --Dan Coble writes I live about an hour north of Jacksonville Florida. During Shuttle missions we often hear the sonic boom of the shuttle decelerating for it's approach to NASA. Most of the time when the landing is at night we go outside to try to get a glimpse of the shuttle reentering. On December 27, 1999, my family and I were outside looking for the shuttle to reenter. My daughter and I saw a very bright light at high altitude traveling east. It was too far north to be the shuttle. As a pilot, I'm used to seeing commercial and military aircraft at various altitudes, satellites passing overhead, and the shuttle. The craft was traveling on a parallel course with what would have been the approach corridor of the shuttle over the Gulf of Mexico, and was visible at the precise time of the shuttle's return. We watched as the craft traveled almost out of sight to our east, then it made a sharp turn to the north, accelerated, climbed to a VERY high altitude at high speed. The shuttle would have turned south. It was immediately followed by high altitude aircraft, I assume were military. Their speed was much greater than commercial jet traffic. We watched as military aircraft converged from the north and from the south. I assume from the altitude the UFO was at that time, there was no way they could have caught it. It zipped a distance of a 100 miles in the blink of an eye. My wife was able to follow it until it appeared to slow and continue north. The craft was about half the size and brightness when we first saw it, leading me to guess that this UFO had climbed to an extremely high altitude. I am sure you are aware that this part of the country is a hotbed of UFO activity. During last night's shuttle landing, my mother spotted a light in the southeastern sky, emitting bright shafts of light toward the ground. There seems to be allot of UFO activity during nighttime shuttle launches and landings. I suggest people should spend some time looking up. Thanks to Dan Coble. See for information on the Aurora.
YORKSHIRE MOORS -- Andrew Makinson writes, "My girlfriend and my brother and I were driving slowly due to the fog on A635 from a millennium celebration over the New Year. We approached a car that had stopped up ahead. The occupants of the car were still inside and my girlfriend said that I should stop and ask if they required any assistance. My brother and I approached the driver's window and knocked on it. The driver wound his window down and said, 'Tell me that you see that?' He was pointing toward some bright white lights facing the road about 100 meters away. Oh my God someone's come off the road in an accident. "I asked the man if he had been over to the car?" and he said, "It's not a car mate, I don't know what it is?" At this point we heard a sort of blast of noise rather like a ships horn, its lights turned greenish and dimmed slightly before a reddish bluish glow appeared underneath. The lights shot up into the air. No noise no nothing and they were gone! We exchanged telephone numbers and names and said that we should contact each other. I am skeptical about such things, but five people witnessed a craft that was not a helicopter. Thanks to Andy Mak and Todd Lemire uk.rec.ufo newsgroup. Stalybridge
GLOUSCESTERSHIRE-- Dave Cosnette writes, "On December 7, 1999, at 6.30 AM I saw an incredibly large craft near my house while taking the dog for a walk. I first spotted a large white light that had many different colors moving inside of it. On closer inspection I noticed a star formation behind the craft was moving with it. This craft was as big as an open daily newspaper at arm's length. The lights at the back were like a triangle, but flying backwards. The point was at the rear and a large white light was at the front. Others also saw it. I ran back home to get my brother and we both saw the craft was just moving over a hill, four miles away. It was still three inches wide at that distance. Another witness said he couldn't believe how big it was and that he couldn't hear any noise. Thanks to "Dave Cosnette
ROME -- Francis Paliekara writes, "I was watching CNN and MSNBC on New Year's Eve when they showed celebrations from around the world. They were showing footage from the Vatican during the pope's New Year's blessing. As they panned around St. Peter's Square There was an object in plain sight which hovered completely still in the sky on the right. It was gray and disk shaped and had no light coming from it or around it. I don't know what it was. I was curious if others saw it? Thanks to Francis Paliekara
MANILLA -- McMahons writes, "Hi, while walking by the T.V. set that is hooked up to receiving dish for the "ABS-CBN TFC Direct"( The Filipino Channel satellite broadcasting to many areas of the world via tape delay) I watched the a portion of the New Year's celebration which included fire works and a Laser light display. Right after the news portion covering the Laser lights, they showed, what they described, as a bright light that was very high in the sky and moving slow enough that it was there for at least five minutes. There was no guess as to its actual altitude but it was "very high" and they were positive that it was not a Laser projection, it was also observed by their President and members of his "party"..
