In Special Reports this week's files cover: Scientists Report Finding a Lunar Cave Suitable for a Colony, Mars Tracks and Tubes, New Guinea UFO Sighting in 1959 and MUFON CMS Closed Case Statistics by Kristen Winslet
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena were spotted over: California, Hawaii, Illinois, Kentucky, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Washington D.C. and Virginia.
UFOs were observed above the Atlantic Ocean, Canada, Czech Republic, Italy, Puerto Rico, and UK/England.
The purpose of these files is to report weekly the UFO eyewitness and photo/video evidence that occurs on a daily basis around the world and in space. These Files assume that extraterrestrial intelligent life not only exists, but my hypothesis is that the over a thousand UFOs reported each month represent technologically advanced spacecraft conducting surveillance of Earth. I personally became interested in UFOs when I was ordered to intercept one over England while flying for the US Air Force. The US Air Force under Project Blue Book investigated UFOs for more than twenty years, we continue this research.
I believe the God of the universe has spread life throughout the cosmos and UFO's are visiting us in ever increasing numbers.
Scientists Report Finding a Lunar Cave Suitable for Colony.
(CNN Reports) -- Building a home near a moon crater or a lunar sea may sound nice, but moon colonists might have a much better chance of survival if they just lived in a hole. That's the message sent by an international team of scientists who say they've discovered a protected lunar "lava tube" -- a deep, giant hole -- that might be well suited for a moon colony or a lunar base. The vertical hole, in the volcanic Marius Hills region on the moon's near side, is 213 feet wide and is estimated to be more than 260 feet deep, according to findings published in Geophysical Research Letters, a journal of the American Geophysical Union.
More important, the scientists say, the hole is protected from the moon's harsh temperatures and meteorite strikes by a thin sheet of lava. That makes the tube a good candidate for further exploration or possible inhabitation, the article says. "Lunar lava tubes are a potentially important location for a future lunar base, whether for local exploration and development, or as an outpost to serve exploration beyond the Moon," writes the team, led by Junichi Haruyama, a senior researcher with the Japanese space agency JAXA.
"Any intact lava tube could serve as a shelter from the severe environment of the lunar surface, with its meteorite impacts, high-energy UV radiation and energetic particles, and extreme diurnal temperature variations."
Lava tubes have previously been discovered on the moon, but the scientists say the new hole is notable because of its lava shield and because it does not appear to be prone to collapse. Lava tubes exist on Earth and also have been found on Mars. The cylinder-shaped caverns can be carved out by lava flows, volcanic eruptions, seismic activity or ground collapse resulting from meteoroid strikes. The scientists used high-resolution images from a Japanese moon orbiter called SELENE to discover this lunar lava tube. NASA is reportedly working on plans to return to the moon by 2020 and to set up a temporary lunar colony. Thanks to http://www.cnn.com/2010/TECH/
Mars Tracks and Tubes
Richard Buchli D.V.M. writes, "Tracks located on Mars are 86 miles long located at 19-52N 167 W would indicate a large machine moving along the surface. Natural causes are unlikely".
The planet Mars makes its closest approach to Earth on January 27th when it's 99.3 million km away; it won't be this close again until 2012. Though this will be nothing like the opposition of August 2003, when Mars came within 56 million km. The planet peaks at magnitude -1.3 this month, just a little fainter than Sirius.

A human like figure found at 70 04 S 120-35E
Dr. Richard Buchli writes, "At 25 35 S 47 20 W This is a real find of tubes system five miles wide and about half mile high. Cities, structures, and rivers could all be inside these tubes. Don't you think the big tube is our most important find so far?"
Tubes can serve as a shelter from the severe environment of the lunar surface, with its meteorite impacts, high-energy UV radiation and energetic particles, and extreme diurnal temperature variations.

New Guinea UFO Sighting in 1959
PAPUA -- It is now 50 years since a 31-year-old Australian Anglican missionary William Gill, and 37 parishioners and staff made the best attested and least explained UFO sighting. Gill, who was priest in charge at Boianai, a large village on the mountainous north coast of Milne Bay province wrote "There had been quite a number of reports over the months from reliable witnesses."
"The peculiar thing about these most recent reports is that the UFOs seem to be stationary at beautiful Boanai or to travel from Boianai." "I myself saw a stationary white light twice on the same night." Gill wrote, Then the following night, on April 10, 1960, we at Boianai experienced about four hours of UFO activity, and there is no doubt whatsoever that they are handled by beings of some kind." "At times it was absolutely breathtaking. We saw a bright white light appearing in the northwestern sky, approaching the mission station, then hovering about 100 meters in the air."
Gill, Moi, another teacher, Ananias Rarata, and 35 other people who all later signed a confirming document, watched what they described as a large, disc-shaped, solidly constructed object, with a wide base tapering up to a higher deck, and with what appeared to be four legs beneath, and four brightly lit panels in the side. It occasionally emitted a shaft of blue light at a 45 degree angle. Then what they described as men emerged on to a deck on the top, four at most, but in various configurations. Artist's impression of the encounter by Australian missionary Father Gill. (credit: Brookesmith and http://www.ufoevidence.org)
Clouds, which were at about 600m, then eventually, obscured the vessel as it drifted higher. It had been stationary through most of the 25 minutes of this encounter. Gill then wrote his letter to Durie. That evening, the visitation returned in an extraordinary manner. He first saw it at 6.02 PM, as the sun was setting. Gill's account states: "We watched figures appear on top - four of them - no doubt that they are human."Two smaller UFOs were seen at the same time, stationary; one above the hills west, another overhead."On the large one, two of the figures seemed to be doing something near the centre of the deck . . . were occasionally bending over and raising their arms as though adjusting or setting up something."One figure seemed to be standing looking down at us (a group of about a dozen). I stretched my arm above my head and waved. To our surprise the figure did the same.
"Ananias waved both arms over his head then the two outside figures did the same."Ananias and self began waving our arms and all four now seemed to wave back. There seemed to be no doubt that our movements were answered. All mission boys made audible gasps (of either joy or surprise, perhaps both).
"As dark was beginning to close in, I sent Eric Kodawara for a torch and directed a series of long dashes towards the UFO. After a minute or two of this, the UFO apparently acknowledged by making several wavering motions back and forth.
"Waving by us was repeated and this followed by more flashes of torch, then the UFO began slowly to become bigger, apparently coming in our direction. It ceased after perhaps half a minute and came no further.
"After several minutes the figures apparently lost interest in us for they disappeared below deck. At 6.25pm two figures reappeared to carry on with whatever they were doing before the interruption. The blue spotlight came on for a few seconds twice in succession."The situation remained unchanged, so Gill returned to his regular routine and went to have his dinner at 6.30.By 7pm, the main object had moved slightly away and the observers went into the village church for evensong, as usual. By the time they emerged, at 7.45pm, visibility had become very limited with the sky covered in cloud. At 10.40 pm, Gill wrote, an "earsplitting" explosion woke up the mission-station inhabitants. Gill said it did not feel like a thunderclap.
Later, Gill said, he was always asked why he had reverted to his usual routine when there was a flying saucer apparently hovering overhead. This was partly because, he said, "there was nothing eerie or other-worldly about any of this. It was all so ordinary, as ordinary as a Ford car."It looked a perfectly normal sort of object, an Earth-made object. I realized, of course, that some people might think of this as a flying saucer, but I took it to be some kind of hovercraft the Americans or even the Australians had built. The figures inside looked perfectly human."
Gill's report caused quite a sensation at the time. The Defence Ministry deployed two RAAF officers to investigate. Although they found Gill "a reliable observer", they attributed the sightings to "natural phenomena". Thanks to Bob Chapman, Rowan Callick and The Australian Newspaper:

United States Sightings
California Tiny Grayish-Metallic Spheres
To understand what happened at 2:30 am on early Saturday morning, you have to understand what happened to me in 1989. I was renting a two bedroom Condo in North Dallas. I had a Roommate, Carole, who stayed in the Bedroom directly across the Living Room area from my Bedroom? I was walking out of my Bedroom around 1 PM and turned my eyes to the right and I heard this "Pop" sound and I see three grayish-metallic spheres fly right through the wall! They were three to four inches in diameter. I have 21/10 vision up close and I was only two feet away so I could see them so clearly. They were also flying in an elliptical pattern and I could see that the "Popping" sound was them literally expanding and contracting the wall as they went through it!!..I could even see that "Doppler Effect" colors kind of pooling on the surface of the spheres... My Roommate Carole was coming out of her room and saw something but was over ten feet away. I saw them for less than a second and they were gone.
Yesterday, I was in my bathroom and brushing my teeth and I hear that "Pop" sound again coming from the other room. Later, I was walking into my Living Room and I see two perfect symmetrical circles on my carpet in front of my bed !!!...They looked like "Crop Circles" and one even has what looks like a Star Map inside it and they are very close to the same diameter of the spheres I saw in 1989! I remembered that Crop Circles can have Radiation left behind and I am wondering if these are emitting some kind of toxic Radiation.....Could you please come and check them out with a Geiger Counter. Thanks to Cici and MUFON CMS
EL CAJON -- New Year's night 2010, just after 12:15 AM, I looked out my patio to see three red lights in a triangle formation low in the southern sky. It appeared to drift slowly west and one by one the lights dimmed and were gone. With high powered binoculars I could see the lights were still there but not visible to the naked eye. I'm sure many have seen this object that night.
SAN LUIS OBISPO -- On January 2, 2010, I was at home with my kid and went outside onto the back porch about 11 AM, and noticed a very odd out of place object in the sky above the mountains that face the direction of the ocean. The object was still and did not move for about five minutes and then suddenly it was gone!
MURRIETA -- We turned left down Mount Street and I looked back and an object was right behind us on December 6, 2009, at 1 PM. She looked back and speeded up and almost hit a white van The object was chasing us as we cane to my house. I jumped out as the car made a U turn and ran toward my house and saw the object hovering over a huge tree next to my house.
I haven't been able to sleep, and my brother told me that his friend was also chased by one the same night! It was round with white light's going back and forth but it didn't make a sound.. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
Hawaii Bright Green Light
HONOLULU -- From a vantage point on a hillside facing the ocean beyond Waikiki on December 6, 2009, at 7:30 PM, I spotted a bright flash of green light at about the same altitude as my line of sight. The location was over the ocean, some distance offshore of Diamondhead or Waikiki/Honolulu area of Oahu. The green light flashed once, then streaked several miles to the left in a split second, flashed brightly once more, then went dark momentarily and flashed dimly once more before disappearing.
I watched the area for five more minutes but I didn't see another. I watched the area after this sighting and there were a number of commercial flights moving slowly across the sky with their characteristic small flashing white lights. The speed, color and movement pattern of man-made craft and UFOs are entirely different and as a former flight student, I would never possibly confuse the two.
I had another sighting ten years ago on the other side of the island of Oahu, over Kaneohe Bay of a green light and flight pattern similar too this recent one. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
FRANKFORT -- We spotted three lights in the sky not far from our home on December 5, 2009, at 5:55 PM. They stayed in a triangle formation for awhile and then changed with one of the lights moving further out and then back. Two of the lights stay in a line. Duration of the sighting was for 20 minutes.

Kentucky Rectangle and Lights
MAYFIELD -- On our way home from Paducah to Mayfield, on January 2, 2010, I noticed six orange lights gliding slowly in the sky just off the side of the highway. The lights appeared to be moving at a slow rate of speed. My wife, two children and I observed these lights for approximately 5 minutes or more. Several other cars pulled over on the highway in that area as well. The lights slowly faded out of sight one at a time beginning with the one at the tip of the chevron and ending with the last light. I was able to take the picture with my cell phone shortly before the lights started disappearing.
MURRAY -- I am a mother of two young children; on the night of December 5, 2009, at 9:06 PM, I went out on my back porch to smoke a cigarette and when I looked up I saw a dark rectangular shaped mass, but it had a slight point to the front center. Along the underside there were two perfectly aligned rows of 5 or 6 star-like lights. They traveled in perfect formation so I know that they were a part of a larger rectangular shaped object with two rows of light formations traveling erratically, using 90 degree turns and hovering in the sky... There was no noise, and because of the temperature and the hour I do not think it was a glider/parachute, etc.
I watched this object for a minute and thirty seconds. At first it glided closer to me in a very tight S pattern, making very sharp 90 degree turns. It was traveling South Southwest at a moderate speed, at one point it stopped completely and hovered above another duplex for a few seconds. I could tell because the lights were still and it looked to have one end lower down than the other, and that's when I saw the rows of dim lights. After it hovered a few seconds it rose straight up in the sky, I could still see the light formations on the bottom. It slowly started traveling southwest again, and then it disappeared completely. It moved like nothing I have ever seen. The sharp angles of its turns and the speed at which it rose straight up into the sky were completely foreign, not to mention how it disappeared right in front of me.

New Hampshire Triangle, Bright glowing lights
WOODSVILLE -- Saw a light formation in the sky of December 5, 2009, at 8 PM, the lights would turn on and brighten to high intensity. While this was happening, could see something being projected from the light source. It would fade to black and I could see the shape dimly in the sky. Then would it re-illuminate itself in a different position in the sky following the same pattern of lights and projections. Illuminations would last 3-5 seconds in each location. There was no sound at all. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
