My friend at the time called me and said he had seen some “ufos”, I thought he was seeing things, but humored him and said we could get together the next night for a poker game and see the so called “ufos” m father in law and I went to Mondovi Wisconsin to play cards. While playing, around 8 pm he noticed the lights, so we all went outside (My friend, his wife, my father in law and myself). I had brought a camera, as well as a video camera to record the lights and explain to him what we were seeing, that being said, my Father n law was in the Air Force when he was younger and I lived on many Military bases and knew a lot about jets, Helicopters etc, I thought I’d easily explain the light to him to prove they were not ufos. After about 5 minutes, I knew without a doubt as well as my father in law these were NO, JETS OF ANY KIND, HELICOPTERS, BALLOONS, RADIO TOWERS, BLIMPS, and surely not Drones (drones were not out as of this year. We observed these “lights” for about an hour and a half. I took a lot of pictures and some video, wish I’d have taken more but was so dumbfounded as to what I was seeing and trying to explain to myself what they were… I can NOT explain what we saw. As stated above, nothing I knew of could have did what these lights were doing, they fly slow as times from east to west, north n south. And faster at times, no abrupt changes in direction but would “disappear ” and show up miles away in seconds or an instant. I’m not seeking any kind of fame, tv etc don’t even care about credit for pics and video, just would like someone to view them and tell me what they think we seen. , that’s all….you look at the pics and decide for yourself. Not all were the same shape as you can see in the pics. Note, the camera I was using was one of the first digital cameras out, an old Toshiba 4 mg Pixar camera, and you can get the pictures for any manipulation and will not find any … this is exactly as they were taken. It took me years to figure out weather or not to even post them or tell anyone other than family, but, I’m to curious as to what they were. I thank you for your time, and hope you can explain what these are… Thank you, Sincerely, I’m trying to upload more pictures but it only let me upload one.
KENS NOTE: Why MUFON would classify this case as IFO, Identified Flying Object is a total mystery to me. It alarms me of the possible debunkers in this organization.
The owner of the Alpine lodge – referred to as Mr. L in the report, although named in NICAP’s files as Friedrich Lennartz – along with the property’s caretaker, Peter Zettel, were appreciating the stunning view of the snow-covered landscape through the equally impressive panoramic window of their picturesque building at around 8:30 pm on 10th December 1973.
Dominant in this picture, even at a distance of several miles, was Weitlahner Kopf, a mountain of some 1600 meters. However, on this particular evening, the two men could see a strange red light on or hovering just over the mountain top. They first believed it was a helicopter and so reached for their binoculars to attempt to confirm this.
After 20 minutes of watching the red light, and still believing it to be the cockpit light of a helicopter, Lennartz would fire a red flare gun into the air outside the property. If the pilot of the helicopter was in trouble, he reasoned at the time, then the flare would make them aware of help nearby.
However, within moments of him firing the flare, the object appeared to respond. And not at all in the way the witness would expect a helicopter to. It began to glow a deeper, brighter red color while at the same time, rising into the air, stopping and hovering at an approximate distance of 200 meters above the ground.
Then, it moved toward the two men’s location.
Activity Proceeds Across The Austrian Border
The witness would estimate that the object – which he could now see most certainly wasn’t a helicopter – was around two miles away. What’s more, it was decidedly egg-shaped with a transparent upper dome. Around the underside were rotating, flashing lights, seemingly moving and flashing at random.
Lennartz would recall how the lights went in a counterclockwise direction and “without any apparent system”. He would also recall how the flashing lights had the appearance of fluorescent tubes.
Of most interest to the two men, however, was how absolutely silent the craft was.
Given their location at the southern border of the country, Lennartz had remained in contact with mountain rescue services in Austria and Czechoslovakia. Especially when the object appeared to head over the Austrian border in the direction of the Klausenberg mountain. It appeared to hover directly over the top of the mountain for a short time.
After several moments the strange object began in motion again, this time heading to a nearby lodge (the Klausner lodge). It remained over the top of the building for some time, during which Lennartz would make radio contact with the owner to advise them of the bizarre object overhead. As it happened, they too had been observing the object.
Two Hours Previously In France!
The craft would remain in its hovering position for some time. Ultimately Lennartz would fire off another red flare wondering if it might move or respond once again. At the Klausner lodge, the dogs were, according to the later report, “whimpering” and pawing at the cabin door in an effort to gain entry to the building and out of sight of the mysterious object.
Although the response was not as rapid as it had been before, the aerial vehicle began to rise into the air once more shortly after. It would do so slowly at first before zipping into the distance at “breakneck speed” and vanishing from sight.
Unbeknown to the witnesses on the German side of the border, around two hours previously on the French side of the mountainous divide in Ouzoues-sur-Loire, a married couple in their 50s, along with several other witnesses who were with them, as well as “several gendarmes” who would respond to the incident, would witness a “5-meter tall cone-shaped” craft hovering only a matter of feet from the surface of the ground. The object would then move off, calmly into the distance and disappear.
The similarities of a “cone-shaped craft” and an “egg-shaped” one are perhaps obvious to all of us. As is the close proximity of the sightings to each other. Might the craft viewed in France in the early evening and the one viewed by the lodge owner and caretaker in the German mountain forests several hours later be one and the same thing?

In an unprecedented move for this country–and perhaps the whole world– military authorities have made public a video showing 11 unidentified flying objects (UFOs) captured by an aircraft belonging to the Secretariat of National Defense (SEDENA).
This video shall be presented today by journalist and UFO researcher Jaime Maussan.
In an exclusive interview with the La Prensa newspaper, Maussan stated that the Secretary of National Defense himself, Ricardo Clemente Vega Garcia, authorized the broadcast of this material to both domestic and foreign news media.
According to the researcher, the encounter occurred on March 5, when an aircraft belonging to the Mexican Air Force, a Merlin C26/A, was engaged in drug interdiction patrols. At around 17:00 hours it detected the presence of 11 objects following it.
The routine flight took place between Copalar, Chiapas and the State of Campeche. The encounter took place near Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche. It was there that the aircraft, belonging to the 501st Air Squadron was performing its routine patrol when it suddenly detected the presence of an object on its radar at an elevation of 3500 meters, as well as through its infrared equipment (FLIR).
The airplane immediately pursued the object, which according to the video footage, lost itself in the clouds. Minutes later, the presence of other objects — for a total of 11 — was detected. They followed the aircraft and surrounded it.
These UFOs were captured on radar and by the FLIR gear. However, they were never seen by the aircrew despite having been two miles distant from the aircraft at one point.
The crew consisted of eight monitoring specialists, among them the pilot, Maj. Magdaleno Castañón Muñoz, radar operator Lt. Germán Martin Ramirez and FLIR operator Mario Adrian Vázquez Tellez.
These military men were interviewed and claimed having never seen a similar phenomenon, since the speed and movements detected by radar confirmed the fact that the [objects] were not aircraft.
SAN FRANCISCO — An airline transport pilot with 14 years’ experience in commercial aviation can’t quite explain what he saw at 11 PM, November 3, 2004. The jetliner P.A. was flying was making its approach into San Francisco.
The jetliner was approaching the city from the east, passing just north of Stockton, when P.A. received instructions from the tower to descend from 35,000 to 24,000 feet (10,500 to 7,200 meters). And then it happened.
“While approaching San Francisco from the east,” he reported, “an orange dot began to glow and seemed to flash higher up to the west of us. I thought that it was a planet. It then changed color from orange to white. Again, I thought a planet could be illuminated through a (local) atmosphere that would explain the color change.”
“It then began to move in a northeasterly direction. Once again, being in an airplane, it is very easy to think an object is moving, from small corrections the autopilot makes. I found a handful of stars to serve as a reference point and verified that the object was slowly moving north.
It moved about 30 degrees and then stopped. Then, it made a slight tangent to the right and continued moving for about 20 more degrees.” “It stopped and turned again to the right and continued for 10 degrees, then stopped again and disappeared.”
“The whole sighting ran about two minutes or so from start to finish. It was difficult to judge the actual distance and speed. When I talk about ‘moving in degrees and turning,’ I am talking about my (cockpit) viewpoint and compass degrees.” “The UFO’s size was very small, about the size of the stars and planets you see in the sky.”
“We had initially been at 35,000 feet (10,500 meters) but had descended to 24,000 feet (7,200 meters) when we saw the object. We were above the clouds with a clear view, and there was a crescent moon behind us. The weather in San Francisco was partly cloudy skies and light rain.”
“There were two of us in the cockpit, and we both witnessed the same thing. We were both in awe. I have been flying for 14 years have never witnessed something like this before.”
NOTE: The above photo is real but from another sighting in Ohio.
On the afternoon of 19th April 1978 in the small town of Colfax, Mark Coltrane was on police patrol duty when he decided to pull his vehicle to the side of the road so he could have something to eat. It was as he was doing so, in an area in a town of only a few thousand that was free of people, he noticed how “crackles” like static was sounding from his police radio.
Before he could take in any more details, though, his attention turned to the “metallic-looking disc” that was moving upwards in the afternoon sky, perfectly clear through the windshield of his police car.
He continued to watch, noticing that the strange object, whatever it was, was moving toward him. As it did so, he would reach for his Polaroid that was in the car. Exiting the vehicle he prepared to snap photographs of this seemingly unearthly craft.
He managed to fire off several shots on the Polaroid. This would send the pictures spitting out of the bottom of the device seconds after capturing the image. He would recall that at one stage the craft was so close that he could even make out markings and details on its underside.
Then, the object began to move away and back into the sky eventually disappearing into the distance. Although he wasn’t exactly sure, Coltrane would state that the sighting would last no longer than several minutes. That is, from first noticing the crackling sound to the craft disappearing into the distance.
He knew what he had seen was real. And he had photographs to prove it. Coltrane would, however, remain in his car for several hours contemplating his next move. He would finally set off to the station to file his report.
, Robert said the encounter occurred Sunday, Dec. 12, 2004, when he and Anne saw a ball of light in the night sky about 7:10 p.m. He said they saw the apparition through a sliding door leading to a deck off the kitchen. He described “a huge ball of brilliant white light coming toward the house from the west,” slightly above the tops of trees. As the object came closer, he said it appeared to grow bigger, and stopped above the house, where it appeared “absolutely huge, maybe two, maybe three football fields. The white light engulfed everything.”
Despite the intense light, the glare didn’t hurt their eyes, he said, but hovered silently for a few minutes before a pale blue light emitted from the underside and formed a perfect square on the deck. Robert said the light fully engulfed Anne, who was lifted off the deck, prompting Robert to open the sliding door with one hand and grab Anne’s waist by other. He said he pulled her into the house and the shut door. When he looked out again, the strange light was gone, he said.
During the ordeal, Anne went unconscious. When she came around, she said she remembered seeing the blue light and that Robert described it as square, but could not remember any details after that. A short while later, they said they received a phone call from Robert’s sister and her husband, about five miles to the east, saying they too saw a ball of white light trailing a blue tail, moving parallel to the ground. Robert said he noticed blisters on his hand, just below his middle finger.
In the report, Robert said he and Anne subsequently noticed unusual occurrences in their own home, including a microwave open beeping at random and objects flying off shelves. Robert said many of these occurrences would happen during the day, and Anne would relate them when he returned home from work. Hypnosis helped her recall details but didn’t work for him, he said. However, he recalled an eerie instance in which he said he administered CPR to Anne as she lay on the floor.
“After I got her off the floor and on to the couch I looked into the kitchen and saw what looked like snow or fine pellets of Styrofoam pouring in through the sliding door – I guess didn’t shut it all the way. After icing my hand for awhile I told Anne, I’m going in the garage to get the shop vac to clean up the mess.’ When I looked again all the white stuff was gone and the small carpet in the kitchen was dry.” He added, “Also the white light outside looked like it flowed like a liquid wrapping itself around everything,” and no shadows formed.
Billerica police said they did not receive any reports of an unusual sighting in the sky Dec. 12, but said from time to time, they, like all police departments, do get calls from concerned residents of a strange light or sound that turns out to be something ordinary. Petty said someone also reported seeing something peculiar in the sky over Billerica around 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 29 and reported the incident to the National UFO Reporting Center in Seattle, Wash. That report describes “a very large, circular, bright-white light above the clouds going around and around in a very large circle” at high speeds. The report said the witness looked out again and saw the same light about an hour later and insisted it wasn’t a search light or plane.
In his probe in the reported Dec. 12, 2004 incident, Petty said, among other steps, he made inquiries to several area police departments, interviewed many of the couple’s neighbors and have filed a Freedom of Information Act request from the federal Aviation Administration regarding aerial activity in the area on that evening. He said Billerica police provided a printout of police log entries from the time of the reported sighting, but that log activity suggests no unusual reported occurrences. He said Burlington police sent a written response indicating nothing unusual. An inquiry to Bedford police received no response, he said.
Anne, 58, a disabled contractor, agreed to meet recently with a Minuteman reporter, but would not give her or Robert’s last name. She showed the small porch where she said the object appeared and which she said lifted her a few feet in the air before Robert grabbed her and pulled her inside.
But she said any physical evidence – the burns on Robert’s hands, which she showed in a photograph, and the powdery residue she described – are gone. She said, after the incident, her sister called on the phone to say she, too, had seen a bright object with a trailing tail while traveling on a highway. They’re not UFO or science fiction buffs, she said, and books and movies of that ilk are sparse in their collection. Anne, who said she recalled a peculiar sighting of a lighted object in her youth, said the experiences she reported suggest the possibility of extraterrestrial presence. However, she remains as mystified as anyone, she said. She said, “I’ve always been very open-minded. I’d be arrogant to think we are the only beings in this vast universe.”

In a letter accompanying the photos, the source claims to have taken the remarkable UFO photographs on the 16th of September, 1996, in Valley, Alabama, USA.
According to the photo taker, he was repairing a fence on his property when his dog started barking loudly. Going over to where his dog was he looked up to see a low-flying capsule-shape UFO hovering and moving slowly over one of his cow pastures. The UFO captured in each of the photos resembles the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo space capsules that the United States launched in the early years of its space program.
Black to dark green, the cone-shaped capsule, when blown-up, shows a black teflon-like covered bottom and a flange or rim that goes around near the top of the unknown object. In each photo the UFO is shown at a slightly different position and elevation, making it more difficult to hoax, according to researchers who have examined the photographs.
The photos and a copy of the letter were aired publicly for the first time on TV-33 in Lagrange, Georgia on 26 September 1996. On the “Heston & Steve” show, the two hosts, Heston Yates and Steve Smoots, along with John C. Thompson and Jimmy Smith, field investigators for the International Society for Ufo Research (ISUR), speculated about whether the UFO photos are real. Mr. Thompson said on the program that he was “most favorably impressed by the photos.”
He also has stated since then that he has two witnesses who saw similar shaped UFOs in May and July in the LaGrange area which is only 20 miles from Valley.
Another witness that he has located, says he and others saw the exact craft, incredibly, 25 years earlier in Atlanta. Mr. Smith, a long-time investigator and actual sightee of UFOs, said the photos appeared genuine. He also said that he himself, in 1971, had seen a UFO with a likeness of what the photos depict. He then went on to relate that the 1971 UFO had cut off power to his pickup while he observed it.
The photos, along with a copy of the letter from the alleged phototaker, have now been sent to Jeff Sainio, a photography expert who specializes in analyzing UFO video and photos. Mr. Sainio, who often does photo analysis for the popular TV Sightings program, will determine if the photos really show a UFO.
In the meantime, it is hoped that the person who took these amazing photos will step forward and allow access to the negatives that the photos were made from. All persons involved in investigating the photos are assuring the photo taker over TV and radio that if he wishes, his anonymity will be kept.
I am a competent, educated scientist of sound mind and character. I have never reported anything like this before.
At 23:30 on 5/27/05 while taking my nightly walk, I obsereved a triangluar craft (craft) traversing the sky from north to south at about 20K feet. The sky is very clear this night with several miles of clear visibility.
The craft’s speed was about 500 knots. The craft was perfectly silent and moving rapidly. Several miles behind the craft was what appeared to be a fighter jet moving very rapidly, 600 to 700 knots. As the jet was chasing the craft they both where flying toward my position. I could begin to hear the engines of the jet at that time.
It appeared as thought the triangular craft was toying with the jet in that as the jet got closer to the craft, the craft would speed up somewhat and leave the jet behind. As the craft and jet got nearly directly over my location, the triangular craft made a sharp right hand turn the the west.
The jet was unable to make the turn at the same angle as the craft. The jet’s turn was much more pronounced and made a much wider loop.
Due to that, the jet lost quite a bit of ground on the craft during the turn, yet again as both craft began traverseing in a straight line toward the west-nortwest the craft again appeared to toy with the pursuing jet in the same manner aforementioned.
After a few seconds it appeared that the craft accelerated dramaticaly and left the jet behind. I observed the jet make one tight loop several miles from my position and then turn off to the north-northeast and flew out of my line of sight.
One thing that was odd about the triangular craft was the three lights making up the trianglar pattern were not equal in distance. Referencing the wingspan of the jet, two of the lights on the craft were about 50 to 75 feet apart and the third light was approximately 100 to 150 feet from the other two lights.
Additionally, the two lights closer together were at the front and the other further away light was at the rear facing the pursuing jet. This made the craft to appear to be moving in reverse.
It should be noted, that the color of the triangular craft lights were an unusual milky white color, nothing like that of the very bright red, green and white lights observed on the jet.
Tinker Air Force Base, which does have fighters, is located about 25 miles east of my house.
I assure you that this is a true account of what I observed on the stated date and time.
NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness via telephone on two occasions, and we found him to be quite objective in his description of the alleged sighting, and very well organized in his description of what it was he apparently witnessed.
We have invited him to contact media and law enforcement offices, to inquire whether anyone else might have been witness to the event. Also, he will contact the FAA ARTCC in Oklahoma City, to inquire whether the controllers on duty Friday night, May 27, might know what the cause of the incident was.
We have to allow for the possibility that the object apparently being pursued by what may have been a military fighter jet may have been an F-22 “Raptor” fighter on a test flight, but even that aircraft would have to have displayed conventional red and green marker lights on its wing tips.

A UFO was spotted flying over a mountain range in Nevada, An expert claimed the UFO was an alien mothership.
The UFO was flying towards an Air Force base known for alien activity.
A video taken by an eyewitness revealed a massive UFO hovering over a mountain range in Nevada.
According to a UFO expert, the mysterious vessel was spotted near Area 51 and another controversial Air Force base in the region.
The video was shared on YouTube by the channel UFOs and Aliens Santana. As indicated in the video’s description, it was taken on Jan. 29 near the border between California and Nevada.
The eyewitness who took the video was riding in a car that was traveling across the Extraterrestrial Highway, a popular stretch of road in Nevada.
The incredible video, which is less than 30 seconds long, shows a massive disc-shaped UFO flying over a mountain range. It was clear enough to see the UFO’s overall shape and its central circular feature.
According to Scott Waring of ET Data Base, the massive UFO, which he believes measures about a kilometer long, was spotted near controversial facilities in Nevada. One of these is Area 51, which has been the center of numerous conspiracy theories.
Aside from Area 51, Waring noted that the strange UFO was also spotted near another facility known as the Nellis Air Force Base (AFB). Like Area 51, Nellis AFB is also popular among conspiracy theorists due to the stories surrounding it.
Previous eyewitness reports claimed that strange alien creatures, many of which were referred to as tall white aliens due to their appearance, were found roaming near the base. Others claimed that the military personnel overseeing Nellis AFB directly interacted with the extraterrestrials to learn more about alien technology.
Waring speculated that the mysterious object featured in the video is an alien mothership that was heading to Nellis AFB. The UFO expert that the video proves that Nevada is still a hotbed for extraterrestrial activity.
This UFO is about 1km across using the mountains to determine its size, Waring wrote in a blog post. That’s a mothership…and it’s following the mountain range…and guess what? The mountain range leads directly to behind Nellis AFB…the Tall White location. This is 100% proof that alien activity is still happening in Nevada.
Ing. Carlos Cauich Carrillo shot a video of an unknown object that appeared to accompany the airliner in which he was a passenger for several minutes. The flight was covering the Tapachula-Mexico route on September 21, 2005.
When interviewed, the witness states that he felt very nervous and that he felt as though “something or someone” had placed him there at the exact moment the sighting was to occur, since he was initially only filming images of the landscape as seen from the air.
Upon reviewing the material, I noticed that this unidentified flying object was performing irregular movements at high speed, vanishing completely out of frame at certain moments. This confirms Ing. Cauich’s notion that the alleged UFO was speeding away from the airliner and then returning.
This event took place at 14:15 hours as the Mexicana de Aviacion airliner flew over the state of Oaxaca’s Salina Cruz region.
Ing. Cauich has has sightings prior to this date. His steadfastness in watching the skies and his ability to obtain UFO evidence is noteworthy.
As an additional piece of information, I interviewed aviation technician Alfonso Salazar Mendoza, a UFO researcher and writer, who kindly informed me that commercial airliners flying at cruising altitude achieve speeds of 800 km per hour and an altitude of 12,000 meters. This information provides an approximate estimate.
On December 15th, 2005, A friend and I had the following UFO sighting. At 3:30 am, on this morning, with me at the wheel, my friend and I went on a little drive to see the UFO activity in Utah Valley. We focused our attention mainly on two areas.
1-The night sky above Spanish Fork City, Utah.
2-The Spanish Fork City Airport.
Both of us were absolutely astounded, to say the least as we approached Spanish Fork City from the north when we observed one of the biggest UFOs that I’ve ever seen. The diamond-shaped UFO was floating slowly, about 300 feet above this city, moving northbound.
We were fascinated with the camouflaging measures, used by this sinister looking spaceship. Reproduced into this massive UFO’s outer shell, were the lights (yes they were HIGH INTENSITY DISCHARGE LAMPS) of the city of “Woodland Hills” which is a few miles south of Sp.Fk.
Looking directly at this UFO, one may very well be inclined to believe that they are merely looking at some boring city lights, which we are all so familiar with. This, I believe, is exactly what the Aliens are counting on. In my opinion, it is an absolutely ingenious camouflaging measure.
As I gazed wide-eyed and open-mouthed at this colossal craft which I estimated to be about three city-blocks wide and two blocks tall (please excuse my inarticulate and unscientific terminology), I had an inexplicable and conclusive feeling that I was looking at an “airborne Alien nursery!”
Both of us were also very intrigued by the appearance of two “EYES,” human looking in every way about six-feet in diameter which were placed into the sides of the UFO’s outer shell. The technology which the spaceship exhibited in placing so many lights of various sizes which matched all of the lights of Woodland Hills, revealed a high degree of intelligence, in my opinion, of those who possessed and piloted it!
At the Spanish Fork Airport at 5:30 am, as we sat parked, we observed a strange sight. Rolling slowly down the runway, escorted by a low-flying, egg-shaped UFO, was some type of wheeled unit which appeared to be some type of “star projector.” It was close in size to a typical “potato chip” truck. An astounding number of glistening lights, all of which had the appearance of “stars,” covered this mysterious contraption.
The “projector” looked to be rolling down the runway of the airport. I knew, however, that it could be somewhere else, perhaps far beyond our locale. I have been aware now, for some time, that the Aliens have the technology to mask the precise locations of their hardware and activities, by making their appearance seem always to be “distant” as one approaches those areas.
Our presence did not go unnoticed by the “Aliens” as we quickly perceived that six UFOs of various sizes were gradually moving towards us using the HIDLs around us as “cover.” After aligning the lights of their ships, to the HIDLs, I believe, they can then sneak up on their targets.
Perched menacingly atop a nearby building behind the airport parking lot where we sat in our car, we observed an egg-shaped UFO, about 20 feet-wide and 10 feet-tall creeping up on us. Suddenly (I suspect in an effort to distract us from viewing the “star projector”), its right light got brighter and bigger and split into four quarters; two blue and two red, in color. The red quarters then shifted places with the two blue quarters.
A white light then appeared in the midst of the two red quarters of light, about the size of a silver dollar, which continued to gradually grow in size.
Anticipating that something big was about to happen, I sarcastically said to my friend beside me “I’ll bet a helicopter comes out of it; I was wrong! The white light continued growing in size as it slowly moved towards us.
We watched in absolute awe and suspense as it was quickly transformed into a small, white airplane with two red ipinstripes on it!(something like a small cessna).
Traveling at a speed of what appeared to be only ten m.p.h., it swooped slowly down to land… shining a bright spotlight momentarily at us, as it proceeded to taxi down the runway to a hangar behind the airports offices.
The planes appearance took us back a bit. I felt unhesitatingly obliged to turn the car’s ignition key and punch my foot to the accelerator! At that moment my greatest priority was to rush immediately away from the strangeness of what we had just witnessed!
For the next two hours, we drove around the area – dazed and somewhat confused – wondering to ourselves what might happen next. When we began to feel our bodies experiencing a sudden, extremely uncomfortable fever, I began to be suspicious, that perhaps a small Alien probe was traveling with us, either above or beneath the car which was perhaps emitting some type of radiation.
Stopping the car, I got out and knelt down to look under it. Finding nothing, I walked around the car for a full inspection, as I did, I noticed that one of the “high pressure sodium vapor lights” which was directly behind the local “solid waste transfer station” about 100 yards away, was emitting, or shooting a great many, large, bright orange sparks directly towards us!
We quickly fled the area, placing ourselves well out of range of what I perceived to be some type of weapon intended to dissuade those unwelcome and pesky humans who were in the area, from hanging around and making further observations of the Aliens ongoing activities!
At 7:30 am, as we made our way home, I casually looked back towards Spanish Fork, and was amazed to see two “black helicopters” attending to a slow moving cloud, shaped precisely like the massive UFO which we had been observing with interest throughout the night! It crept slowly away, at the same speed as all of the clouds around it, until it rose up gracefully above the nearby mountains and disappeared. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Hi Ken: Extremely bad weather had been forecast for the next couple of days so while the weather was fair I decided to go out into the back garden and sky watch. The sky was nice and blue and there wasn’t many clouds about so I sat down in my garden chair and began to observe the sky around me. I was looking through my binoculars when I spotted something unusual near a contrail. There was a UFO that looked just like a tadpole… It even had a tail that was flapping around behind it as it moved through the air. The surface of the UFO appeared to be metallic in nature as the sun light was reflecting off it. I was very perplexed by what I was seeing. I could not identify it as being any known type of aircraft or anything that I had ever seen before for that matter. It was very bizarre looking. I watched it for a while as it flew around the same part of the sky near the contrail like it was on some sort of fixed flight path. I then decided to take a photograph of the UFO so I put my binoculars down on the garden table and then picked up my Sony HX-300 camera and aimed it towards the UFO before I took a photograph of it. I put down my camera and then continued to observe the UFO through my binoculars once again. After about two minutes of watching the UFO it then shot off at incredible speed heading north where I unfortunately lost sight of it. I have seen a lot of UFOs around this area but I have never seen anything that looked quite like this. Why was it shaped like a tadpole? It just doesn’t make any sense… What on earth could it be? The photograph was taken on the 8th of February 2020, 11:39 AM at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.
On June 27, 2006, five of our grandchildren were fishing in our pond about 3:00 p.m., when they saw a big splash on one side of the pond. Everything became still, and the pond became like glass as the object sank.
Then they saw a whirlpool in the pond about 8 to 10 feet across that moved very fast across the pond towards them. When it hit the water there was steam that went up from the object then the object disappeared to reappear in another area.
One of the children got on a boat that was at the bank, and she could see lights around the sides and the object looked like metal. Two other children said they saw the lights, but two of them said it looked yellow under the water.
Two were still watching it when they saw the water and grass around the pond next to them start to move violently, so they got scared and ran to the house. They were very disturbed by what they saw, and it took three hours before they would tell us what had happened. They range from 7 to 13 years old and all had the same story.
The next day we drove around and found truck like tracks that led towards the pond, but stopped before they got to the pond. There was a circle where the grass had been bent down in an arc shape at the edge of the pond as it splashed into the pond.
They said there was a cloud over them that was swirling. The older children thought it might be a tornado that sounded like a muffled lawn mower.
I asked the OSU Extension Agency to check for contamination. They informed me there had been two other similar incidents. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
On the day in question, two hunters were looking for deer along the woodlands of the Roaring River just outside of the town of Cassville. It was as they were doing so that one of them would notice smoke rising into the air in the distance. It didn’t take him long to realize that the smoke was rising from the area that housed their camp.
He would quickly make his way to the area to find the burnt-out remains of their tent, as well as various items of their possessions strewn about the immediate vicinity. What he immediately found odd was that the tent was placed directly under two large trees. However, neither of these trees seemingly had suffered any damage whatsoever.
This last detail, according to Booth’s notes, was due to a “narrow beam”.
Around this time, the witness noticed a “low humming” sound, as well as noticing several smaller trees that had seemingly not managed to escape the damage inflicted by whatever force was responsible for the destruction of the tent.
As he was taking in the scene, he witnessed “an unusual object” rising above the trees a short distance away from the destroyed campsite. He quickly reached for his camera and managed to snap two quick pictures. You can see one of those pictures above.
The object would quickly rise into the sky. As it did so, the humming sound grew louder, seemingly in sympathy with the object’s speed. He would estimate that within 20 seconds the object was no longer visible. As it did move out of sight, though, and again perhaps something that was in sympathy with its speed, the witness would notice a “band of color around the center of the object”.
Once the object was out of sight, the witness would document the carnage left behind at the campsite area. He would later estimate that the object was approximately 25 feet wide and appeared over the trees at an approximate distance of around 300 feet.
Two experienced airline pilots on separate flights saw something up to a mile wide off the coast of Alderney on Monday afternoon. Surprisingly, Jersey radar equipment did not pick up the object, although an air traffic controller said he had received simultaneous reports from the Aurigny and Blue Islands pilots. Aurigny’s Captain Ray Bowyer, 50, said he saw the strange object during a flight from Southampton. He spotted a bright-yellow light 10 miles west of Alderney while his plane was about 30 miles from the island and at 4,000ft. “It was a very sharp, thin yellow object with a green area. It was 2,000ft up and stationary,” he said. “I thought it was about 10 miles away, although I later realised it was approximately 40 miles from us. At first, I thought it was the size of a 737.” A 737 is slightly smaller than a jumbo jet. “But it must have been much bigger because of how far away it was. It could have been as much as a mile wide.” As he continued his approach to Alderney, Capt. Bowyer saw a second identical object further to the west. “It was exactly the same but looked smaller because it was further away. It was closer to Guernsey.” The sightings come days after reports that scientists have discovered outside our solar system an Earth-like planet capable of supporting extraterrestrial life. “I can’t explain it. At first, I thought it might have been a reflection from a vinery in Guernsey, but that would have disappeared quickly. This was clearly visual for about nine minutes.” The sightings happened at about 3pm. Capt. Bowyer, who has flown commercial planes for about 20 years, said he had described the objects to air traffic control and filled in an incident report. “As I got closer to it, it became clear to me that it was tangible. I was in two minds about going towards it to have a closer look but decided against it because of the size of it. I had to think of the safety of the passengers first.”
He added that the experience had been quite scary. “I”m certainly not saying that it was something of another world. All I”m saying is that I have never seen anything like it before in all my years of flying.” Paul Kelly, 31, the air traffic controller who was on duty, said the Blue Islands pilot had made a similar report, but nothing had appeared on his radar. “The pilot from Blue Islands was en route to Jersey at the same time and as he went past Sark he described an object behind him to his left,” he said. “The description was very similar to Captain Bowyer’s and they described it as being in exactly the same place. But they were looking at it from opposite sides.” The pilot told him the object had been 1,500ft beneath his plane. The Blue Islands plane was at 3,500ft at the time so, again, both pilots placed it at the same altitude. “If the object was stationary, our equipment would not have picked it up because the radar would have screened it out.” NOTE: The above image is real but from another sighting case.
Eagle Point and White City, Oregon-3-20-2007 about 11 AM.
With my eyes it was first seen as a small, shiny, white dot. I got my camera out and tried to zoom in and couldn’t find it.
Then I saw the shining again and zoomed in and started recording, and it was dark again and then shiny again, and then dark again, before it was blocked by a tree and I couldn’t find it again, about 16 seconds of video.
It was just above the mountains and when I was recording it, it seemed to be moving south. When I watched it on the TV and on computer it appeared to stay in the same place above the same cloud feature. We were on Modoc Rd. headed towards Medford, Oregon, and it was east of us towards Eagle Point or White City.
I thought maybe it would turn out to be a plane when I watched it on the TV screen, but I still couldn’t tell what it was exactly.
The truck was bouncing me around and it was hard to keep it on the object and we couldn’t pull over because we were working. My husband was with me but he was driving and couldn’t see it.
There were no airplanes or helicopters in the area. It was a cloudy day, but no rain. There were no electromagnetic effects, missing time, or smells associated with the sighting.
In the wake of reports of unidentified objects flying over Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, a retired Air Force pilot has his own mystery with a rash of bright, colorful lights he photographed hovering in skies over western Arkansas last week.
“I believe these lights were not of this world, and I feel a duty and responsibility to come forward,” Col. Brian Fields told WND. “I have no idea what they were.”
Fields, 61, was cooking chicken at his Van Buren, Ark., home Jan. 9 when just before 7 p.m., he observed two intensely bright lights as he looked to the southeast close to the horizon.
“At first I thought they were landing lights from an aircraft,” he said. “As I continued to observe them they began to slowly disappear, then suddenly one reappeared, followed by two, then three. On at least one occasion four or five appeared. Each time they would slowly fade and eventually disappear. This occurred several times and when they would reappear they might do so in differing numbers and in different positions, sometimes in a triangular shape, sometimes stacked on top of each other, sometimes line abreast, etc. When the objects appeared they might stay illuminated 10 or more minutes.”
Fields’ wife thought the lights may have been ground-based, but Fields says he’s certain they were airborne. The retired colonel spent close to 32 years in the military, flying F-16s as a member of the 188th Fighter Wing of the Arkansas Air National Guard.
“I’m certain it wasn’t an aircraft [from Earth],” said Fields, who also ruled out the possibility of flares, saying they didn’t descend like flares typically do. “It’s not anything I ever had any experience with . … They were some kind of energy or something.”
Fields grabbed his Canon digital camera with 6 megapixel resolution to document what he and his wife were witnessing, and snapped numerous images of the mysterious lights.
He says the phenomenon lasted an hour and 15 minutes, and local news agencies have not published or broadcast any reports of what the couple witnessed. WND surveyed local police and sheriffs agencies, as well as Fort Chaffee, a decommissioned Army base in the region, and no one reported anything out of the ordinary.
“I just can’t imagine other people didn’t see it,” Fields said, noting they appeared at times like a yo-yo at 5 to 10 degrees above the horizon.
Earlier this month, the Chicago Tribune reported workers for United Air Lines said they saw a flying saucerlike object hovering “low over O’Hare International Airport for several minutes before bolting through thick clouds with such intense energy that it left an eerie hole in overcast skies.”
That Nov. 7 sighting took place just before sunset about 4:30 p.m.
According to Tribune columnist Jon Hilkevitch, “All the witnesses said the object was dark gray and well defined in the overcast skies. They said the craft, estimated by different accounts to be 6 feet to 24 feet in diameter, did not display any lights.
“Some said it looked like a rotating Frisbee, while others said it did not appear to be spinning. All agreed the object made no noise and it was at a fixed position in the sky, just below the 1,900-foot cloud deck, until shooting off into the clouds.”
The mobile home of James Richards sat on the absolute outskirts of the city of Columbia in the state of Missouri. Not only that, but the home itself was at the end of dead-end footpath around 1000 feet from the nearest main road. All around this quiet and extremely humble abode were “scattered trees” aside from a small front yard. To say that Richards and his 16-year-old daughter, Vanea, as well as Jamie, her 3-year-old son were cut off from the vast majority of the community was an understatement.
Incidentally, the nearest property to Mr. Richards’ mobile home was a small house, lived in by an elderly lady. She was, however, “asleep at the time of the observation”.
On this particular evening, at a little past midnight on 28th June 1973, Vanea was making her way to the north side of the mobile home, to the fridge so that she could place a baby bottle there. Although there was music filling the home from the record player which was spinning the vinyl disc around and around on its turntable, the open window allowed the sudden noise from outside to be heard easily.
Vanea would later describe the noise as a “thrashing” sound and it appeared to emanate from the trees around the side of the mobile home. The more she listened, now all but blocking out the record player, she could make out what appeared to be the sound of something “moving a large tree” outside.
She would remain where she was for a few more moments, listening intently to the mysterious and unnerving activity taking place outside. Then, as loudly as she could without alerting whoever, or whatever was outside, she would call out to her father.
Two Bright, Silver-White Beams Appear Out Of Nowhere!
Richards could hear his daughter call from the kitchen area of the mobile home as he sat in the living room with Jamie. Because of the hour and the fact that he himself was feeling sluggish and tired, he was rather slow in getting in out of the living room chair and up to the window where Vanea was calling him from.
By the time he had arrived at where his daughter was, she was moving with great pace from the outside screen door to the front door, locking both of them as quickly as she could. He would make his way to the kitchen window, now with a little more urgency than before. His daughter joined him a moment or two later, now satisfied that the doors were as secure as they could be.
As they both stared out into the darkness of the summer’s night, “two beams of light” suddenly became visible. They appeared to be between the trees and the nearby fence. Richards would guess they were approximately 50 feet from the kitchen window they were viewing them from and had a “tapered” look to them, with the wider section at the top.
He would further estimate the beams were around five feet apart, and remained this distance., suggesting they emanated from the same solid source overhead. Furthermore, they had a “bright, silver-white” color to them. However, try as he did, he could see no solid form “above or behind the beams”.
Then, they just disappeared as suddenly as they had appeared. It was then that both Richards and his daughter could see the “bright oval form” in their place.
The Woodland “Lit Up As Bright As Day!”
The father and daughter remained where they were at the kitchen window, both fascinated and alarmed at the scene and scenario unfolding before them.
They would later estimate that the “glowing form” was around 15 feet across and appeared to be only mere feet from the ground. So bright was the object that the pair had difficulty in keeping their sight on it, with Richards even having to look away at one point. Such was the brightness, that other than the silver glow, no other details of the exterior could be seen. Furthermore, because of this brightness, the area immediately outside the mobile home was “lit up bright as day”.
In this artificial daylight, the pair could see the trees moving as if a sudden strong wind had come out of nowhere unleashing its carnage on the area. However, more than that, it appeared that some trees were being manipulated in different ways than others, with Vanea even witnessing one tree being pulled toward the ground.
All the while, however, the only sound that reached them was that which initially caught Vanea’s attention, the strange thrashing noise. No other sounds or noises whatsoever came from the active scene outside, which must have given the scene an even more surreal feel.
Then, the thrashing sound stopped, although the trees continued to move. A moment later, a loud “cracking” sound rang out quickly followed by the bizarre movement of the trees also stopping. Although they didn’t know it at the time, or at least were not certain of it, investigation of the area the following day would show a large, heavy branch had been snapped off at a height of almost 20 feet.
A “Real Bright” Center With Duller, Fuzzy Edges!
Following this burst of activity, a deafening silence would suddenly envelop the mobile home, even seeming to leak into the building itself making the father and daughter feel more than uneasy. It was during these unsettling moments that Richards realized their dogs – who would normally bark at anything that moved outside the house – were completely still and silent. As he went from window to window of the mobile home surveying the area outside, he noticed them almost hiding away from whatever had been taking place only moments ago.
It was then that he went to his bedroom to retrieve his guns. He quickly returned into the kitchen area, the weapons and ammunition in his arms. He would load the guns and then place them on top of the freezer unit and out of the reach of anyone other than he and his daughter.
When he returned to the kitchen window where his daughter remained, watching the scene outside, he could see that the glowing craft remained hovering at a distance of around 50 feet from their home, although the brightness lit up a radius of around double that.
Although they could still make out no real detail of the craft other than it was oval-shaped and a “silver-white or aluminum” color, Richards would recall that the middle of it was “real, real bright” while the edges were decidedly duller. Vanea, similarly, would recall that edges of the object were somewhat “fuzzy”.
The pair remained at the kitchen window, nervous about what might happen next but not wishing to take their eyes from the situation for even a moment. After several more moments, however, Richards made the decision it was time to call for help.
Contact “The Police, The FBI” Or Anyone Who Can Help Me!
Whether by coincidence or not, almost in sympathy with his actions the object suddenly moved and changed its position. It would now take up temporary residence in the sky over a nearby field, approximately 200 feet from the mobile home.
Because there was not more distance between the craft and their location, the pair could now make out a lot more detail than they could previously. For example, the craft was a bright silver-white in the middle while at the edge was a “blue band of light”. Furthermore, an “orange glow extended around the outer edge”.
Richards and his daughter watched the craft return to its original position, describing the movement of it as “smooth and slow”. Shortly after this, he would reach for the phone and dial 113 for directory assistance.
The lady who took the call – identified as “Mrs. AB” would claim that Richards was “very excited and seemed to be frightened” although he was clear in describing the event. He would also request that she contact “the police, the FBI, or anyone who could help him!”
She would manage to calm him somewhat and assure him that she would contact an operator who would call him back. Several moments later, a “Mrs. P” called back and spoke with Richards for several minutes. During this exchange, the lights in the mobile home dimmed several times. This, of course, is a detail that often surfaces in close encounter experiences. Usually, however, these types of encounters occur while people are in their vehicles and experience their car’s cutting out without warning.
On Mrs. P’s instructions, he would hang the phone up, return to the window, and await the return call.
An Obviously Frightened But Sincere Witness!
While this was taking place, Mrs. P would contact Mrs. L, who would in turn attempt to call Richards. However, when she did, she would hear nothing other than a “deadline”. She would try the number five times, even calling Mrs. P back in between to check that the number she had was correct.
During this time, Richards himself began to worry that no one had contacted him back. So much so, that he picked up the receiver. Bizarrely, and adding even more to the strangeness of the situation, after the line appeared dead, he suddenly heard Mrs. M.
He would then relay the evening’s happenings to the operator, stating at this stage that he was decidedly frightened for his children.
For her part, Mrs. M would recall that Richards would repeat his story again and again. He would occasionally pause and shout out to his daughter, asking if the strange object was still outside.
Before long, Richards was transferred to Mrs. S at the Flight Service Station at Columbia Regional Airport.
Mrs. S would ultimately assure Richards that she would contact the police and report the sighting for him. She would also inform him that she had knowledge of another sighting on the 24th June – only two weeks earlier – we will examine that incident later.
Shortly after the exchange, the pair would hang up.
A moment or two later, the object began to approach the mobile home once again.
A Last Visual Stand-Off!
Richards and Vanea watched the object approach, watching with a rising sense of fear intoxicating each of them. Richards would later describe a “cold feeling” overtaking him and the feeling of something imminent and dire about to take place. He would state that he “just froze” and had no idea what to do.
Even more, the distinct feeling that he, his daughter, and grandson were on their own in their out-of-the-way mobile home wouldn’t leave him. Nor would the insistence that all three of them would not for any reason step outside.
As each of them remained at the window the object moved again, seemingly negotiating the trees as it did so. It would eventually settle into a position around 50 feet from their location. Both Richards and his daughter all the while remained where they were at the window, watching the strange, hovering, glowing object not daring to take their eyes from it.
This visual stand-off continued for several minutes (although neither witness was completely sure just how long this was for). Then, the craft went into motion yet again. Once more, it went through the trees with a “smooth, slow motion”, although Richards recalls that during this particular burst of movement, the surrounding trees appeared undisturbed.
The craft once more would stop at a distance of around 200 feet from the Richards’ mobile home. As before, from this distance, the blue-orange glow of the outer edges of the vehicle were visible while the solid silver glow of the center section was now more defined. The object then appeared to fade away, although not into the distance (no trees appeared disturbed, for example) but as though it was literally fading from view.
Within several minutes, the object was no longer visible.
A Wealth Of Outlandish Possibilities That Must Be Considered!
This last detail is of interest to UFO researchers as there appears to be many cases where what appears to be a solid craft disappears. However, not shooting off into the distance at great speed but by seemingly fading away from existence, as if someone turned down a dimmer switch or flicked off a light bulb.

Location of Sighting: Gulf of Mexico aboard U.S.S. Lexington Date of Sighting: (1962 to 1966 – exact date unknown) Time of Sighting: around midnight Date Reported: February 12, 2005 Number of Witnesses: several crew members (exact number unknown)
Description (in witness’s own words with some editing): While serving aboard the U.S.S. Lexington CVS-16 (aircraft carrier), I was an elevator operator for aircraft. One night around 12 midnight I saw a large orange glow in the sky. I called flight deck control. They said they had it on radar and tried to get it to identify itself. When they got no reply, they sent 2 F4 jets up. You could see their afterburners and the F4s did not even come close to catching it. The object (light) took off out of sight. As soon as the jets returned, it came back. This pattern repeated itself 3 times. After the 3rd time, guess they thought it was no threat. It followed us for about half hr [a half hour] I guess then left. We were told the next day to say nothing about the sightings. I wish I had at least written down time/day/year, but did not. Even years after I did not know who to report it to. Then as time elapsed more, I figured no one would believe me. I just thought that I would report it as I remembered it. We were operating in the Gulf of Mexico out of Pensacola, FL. I worked the hanger [sic] deck elevator. I was in the V3 division/aircraft handlers.
Investigator’s Notes: I have mailed the witness a list of additional questions and asked for some clarifications of his experience. I received a response to my follow-up questions. The witness confirmed that his tenure in the Navy was from 1962 to 1966 and that he does not remember the year of the sighting. I was hopeful that the witness may be able to reach other personnel who were privy to the sighting. However, he said that he was not in touch with any of his fellow servicemen who experienced the sighting. The witness also further stated that no nuclear weapons were on the U.S.S. Lexington at the time of the sighting. He stated that F4 Phantom aircraft were scrambled after the UFO. He was uncertain as to the location of the ship when the UFO was sighted. He did say that the event occurred in the Gulf of Mexico several hundred miles from the Pensacola, Florida Naval Air Station. Apparently he was debriefed by petty officers after the sighting and at that time was told not to say anything about the sighting. Having testimony from other crew members who were privy to the sighting would greatly strengthen the case. I plan to look through documents released through the Freedom of Information Act to see if the U.S. Navy acknowledged that this incident occurred. This sighting is interesting because it apparently involved both radar and visual sightings. Other reports of UFOs following ships have been reported. (Many of these ships were carrying nuclear weapons.) NOTE: The above image is real but from another sighting.
It was 46 years ago this month, but I remember it like it was yesterday. My friend and I were driving to her house around 6:00pm when I casually looked out the window up at the sky and I saw some kind of rapidly dropping light, which fell and disappeared, similar to a shooting star. I dismissed it as that, until I looked out again a few minutes later and saw what I assume was the same light moving in odd directions, very fast. It would appear, zip vertically for a second then disappear again, only to reappear elsewhere in the sky, dart up diagonally, then disappear again. This happened probably about 4 times, then stopped, I didn’t see it after that. That is until we got to my friend’s house and stepped out of the car. Above her house (which was a large, five-bedroom, two level ranch home), approximately 1000 feet from the ground, was an enormous, disc shaped craft, dull silver-gray metallic, still and silent, with a smaller solid dome on top and a smaller disc shaped area underneath, lighted all around with alternately yellowish lights and portholes. The craft was larger than her house, so I estimate it to be approximately 300 feet in diameter. We stood there speechless looking at this thing, and I remember a combination of astonishment and curiosity, but strangely, no fear. My friend’s Dad came to the front door – as I guess he saw us just standing there looking up – and we screamed to him to come outside and look at this UFO above his house. My friend’s sister came out to see it, so there were three of us who witnessed it, but my friend’s Dad just laughed at us inside the doorway, walked away, and never came out. The craft proceeded to move horizontally very slowly toward the back yard, and it had a red transparent beam moving in sync with it, scanning the creek behind my friend’s house.
They were studying/scanning the creek, we could see the end of the beam in the water. After it passed the creek, it proceeded to move at the same slow rate of speed down her street, toward a private farm which had an open pasture (we called it Brown’s dairy farm). We got back in the car and followed until we reached a stop sign near the farm and could go no further, but we could still see the craft above but close to the trees. It silently stopped over the pasture, then revved up its “engine” which started as a rumble then sounded like three airplanes starting at the same time, but there were no flames, just extremely loud noise, and took off diagonally so fast, it was gone from sight in approximately 5 seconds. And that was it, we never saw it again. I went home, got out my binoculars, and sat outside until about 1:00am looking for it, but I never saw it again. I checked the newspaper after that to see if it was reported, but couldn’t find anything. Warwick is home to an airport, perhaps that’s why. I know what I saw, I still wonder what they were looking for in the creek. What still boggles my mind to this day is how an object that large could be completely silent, even when it started moving (until it took off). I will never forget that as long as I live.

This case is under investigation by Section State Director Eric Smith of MUFON Rhode Island.
