In Special Reports this week's files cover: British UFO Reports Triple in 2009, Former CIA Director Says Its Time for the Truth about UFOs, Mars Anomaly Possible Structure, NASA Mission Apollo 16 Photo Declassification on Approach To The Moon, Mind Control UFO Technology, Warning - Terrorists Likely to Strike Soon, Avatar Movie Portrays Alien Life, and Vatican: It's Ok For Christians to Believe In Aliens and Thanks to Unlimited Horizons for the Opportunity to Speak.
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena were spotted over: Arkansas, California, Florida, Minnesota, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin.
UFOs were observed in Australia, Borneo, Canada, Norway, Russia 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.
British UFO Reports Triple in 2009
In 2009 there were 643 reports of bizarre lights, strange spheres and curious orbs in UK skies - a figure only beaten in 1978.
UFO expert Nick Pope said 31 years ago there were 750 reports from panicked members of the public. But this is the last time the Ministry of Defence will release these figures. The government closed their UFO hotline just before the end of last year, after it had been running for almost 60 years. The files contain sightings from military personnel, police officers and air traffic controllers.
Mr. Pope, who used to run the MoD's UFO project, said last night: "This is incredible. Britain is being inundated with UFO sightings."
"I'm sure the record would have been smashed had the MoD not terminated the UFO project late last year. "These sensational figures just show how wrong that decision was. "There are sightings here from military personnel, police officers and air traffic controllers."

CIA Director Says Its Time for UFO Truth
The first CIA Director wrote to Congress, "It is time for the truth to be brought out. Behind the scenes high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about the UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense. I urge immediate Congressional action to reduce the dangers from secrecy about unidentified flying objects". Former CIA Director Vice Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter, signed statement to Congress,
Mars Anomaly Possible Structure
Richard Buchli D.V.M Ph.D. writes, This strange object on the bottom of this crater is five miles wide and certainly not a formation made by nature. It is located at 76 23 S 27 32 W. Note: At left the three identical domes creating light at the top of the dark structure.
Trees on Mars -- The "trees" are really trails of debris caused by landslides as ice melts in Mars's spring Photo according to NASA. The images appear to show rows of dark "conifers" sprouting from dunes and hills on the planet surface. But the scene is actually an optical illusion. The photographs actually show sand dunes coated with a thin layer of frozen carbon dioxide, or dry ice, less than 240 miles from the planet's north pole according to NASA. Thanks to Tim Allen at http://www.Electricrenaissance.com
Richard Buchli D.V.M Ph.D. writes, "We have here 5 strips of structures side by side. As single strips, these structures are found all over mars. some in short pieces and others in strips many miles long. This group measures eight miles from top to bottom of this view located at43 06 N 116 29 W.
For you planet lovers, Mars takes over from Jupiter as the best planet in the sky for observing. The red planet shines red, bright, and steady in the constellations Leo and Cancer this month, not far from the bright star Regulus.
NASA Mission Apollo 16 Photo on Approach To The Moon
On the film can be observed a dish like unidentified flying object while Apollo 16 approaches to the moon. Apollo 16 mission was composed of astronauts Ken Mattingly, Charlie Duke and John W. Young, who made the video. President Obama declared on December 29, 2009, in an executive order that "no information may remain classified indefinitely" as part of a sweeping overhaul of the executive branch's system for protecting classified national security information. We assume this includes UFO documentation. He also established a new National Declassification Center at the National Archives to speed the process of declassifying historical documents by centralizing their review. Thousands of high quality photos and films have been taken by military and commercial aircraft and will likely be released under the new Presidential orders. Many military personnel have reported seeing high quality films during Commander's Call at various bases.
John Podesta who is in charge of the "Obama transition team is a frequent visitor to the White House and spoke at the National Press Club as I did encouraging the government to release its files on UFOs and alien visitation.
Mind Control UFO Technology
Hundreds of abductees are starting to remember alien abductions that have been blocked from their conscience memory for decades. Controlling the mind of the enemy is the ultimate weapon in any warfare. Apparently, a collection of researchers seek to interpret mind control techniques used by the UFOs and the extraterrestrials, not necessarily for the "good" of humanity. Variations of these techniques were regularly used in ancient wars, in legends and ancient religious mythologies, that were apparent in contact with various Manipulative Extraterrestrial groups. Mind dominance is a method used to make the enemy surrender way before they provide a real fight. It can also convince the enemy to leave their position and run for cover. According to researchers, Manipulative Extraterrestrials use these techniques all the time. The whole clue to mind control and dominance lies in creation of artificial hypnosis effects in a generic sense. The environment in which these effects are created experience strange change in charged ions in the environment.
Scientists and Engineers find that UFOs are always associated with massive electrical fields and corresponding severe change in charged ions in the environment where UFO sightings are reported. Charged ions in the environment when allowed to bombard the brain cells in a sinusoidal oscillating pulse, creates a strange effect that is still undefined. Complex computer algorithms can control the sinusoidal oscillations with varying the amplitude to create an environment of communication between the controlling source and the receiving mind. The technologies are reverse-engineered from the extraterrestrial UFOs but are far from perfected. http://www.indiadaily.com/edit.....l/2137.asp
Warning Terrorists Likely to Strike Soon
I just traveled to Florida and back and saw many areas where terrorists could easily strike. Juval Aviv the Israeli Agent upon whom the movie 'Munich' was based writes, "Look for 'students' who frequently travel back and forth to the Middle East for training. These young terrorists will be most dangerous because they will know our language and will fully understand the habits of Americans. Aviv says that, as a people, Americans are unaware and uneducated about the terrorist threats we will inevitably face. America still has only a handful of Arabic and Farsi speaking people in our intelligence networks, and Aviv says it is critical that we change that fact SOON.
From an intelligence perspective, Aviv says the U.S. needs to stop relying on satellites and technology for intelligence. We need to, instead, follow Israel's, Ireland's and England's hands-on examples of human intelligence, both from an infiltration perspective as well as to pay attention to, and trust 'aware' citizens to help. We need to engage and educate ourselves as citizens. Our government thinks we 'can't handle the truth' and are concerned that we'll panic if we understand the realities of terrorism. Aviv says this is a deadly mistake.
Aviv recently created/executed a security test for our Congress, by placing an empty briefcase in five well-traveled spots in five major cities. The results? Not one person called 911 or sought a policeman to check it out. In comparison, Aviv says that citizens of Israel are so well 'trained' that an unattended bag or package would be reported in seconds by citizen(s) who know to publicly shout, 'Unattended Bag!' The area would be quickly & calmly cleared by the citizens themselves. Unfortunately, America hasn't been yet 'hurt enough' by terrorism for their government to fully understand the need to educate its citizens or for the government to understand that it's their citizens who are, inevitably, the best first-line of defense against terrorism.
Aviv says that if a terrorist attack targets airports in the future, they will target busy times on the front end of the airport when/where people are checking in. It would be easy for someone to take two suitcases of explosives, walk up to a busy check-in line, and then detonate the bags BEFORE security even gets involved. In Israel, security checks bags BEFORE people can even ENTER the airport. Aviv says the next terrorist attack here in America is imminent and will involve suicide bombers and non-suicide bombers in places where large groups of people congregate. (i.e., Disneyland, Las Vegas casinos, big cities (New York, San Francisco, Chicago, etc.) such as shopping malls, subways in rush hour, train stations, etc. The attack will be characterized by simultaneous detonations around the country (terrorists like big impact), involving at least 5-8 cities, Thanks to firstname.lastname@example.org
Avatar Movie Portrays Alien Life
The portrayal of alien life on far-flung planets is another attempt to prepare our society for the announcement of life on other planets and is a perennial hit with audiences. "Avatar" has proved no different with the film doing record business at the box-office. Director James Cameron's latest offering has once again renewed speculation that a real-life alien moon "Pandora" could be found.
Scientists all over the world are constantly gazing skywards looking for life in the distance reaches of the universe and powerful telescopes like Hubble and NASA's recently launched Kepler telescope are casting light into new previously undiscovered corners of the universe. Colin Stuart, an astronomer at the world famous Greenwich Observatory in London told CNN: "With cutting edge technology now, we can start to look at the composition of the atmosphere of those planets. The tell-tale signs are oxygen and methane. If you find those two gases, you could find life."
And with the latest technology astronomers expect to transform our knowledge of the solar system and hopefully confirm once and for all the existence of alien life. Launched in 2009 NASA's Kepler mission is already showing the potential to detect Earth-sized objects. On Monday NASA announced that the Kepler telescope had discovered five exoplanets (more than more than 400 planets beyond our solar system). Lisa Kaltenegger, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts, thinks that there is every chance a real-life Pandora already exists and is just waiting to be discovered. "Alien moons orbiting gas giant planets may be more likely to be habitable than tidally locked Earth-sized planets or super-Earths," Kaltenegger said in a Harvard Smithsonian press release last month. "We should certainly keep them in mind as we work toward the ultimate goal of finding alien life." When NASA launches the James Webb Space Telescope in 2014, Kalteneggar believes that if Earth-sized objects are found the telescope will be able to study their atmospheres and detect key gases like carbon dioxide, oxygen, and water vapor. "If Pandora existed, we potentially could detect it and study its atmosphere in the next decade," she said. (CNN)
"Avatar" is the story of an ex-Marine Sam Worthington who finds himself thrust into hostilities on an alien planet filled with exotic life forms. As an Avatar, a human mind in an alien body, he finds himself torn between two worlds, in a desperate fight for his own survival and that of the indigenous people. Hundreds of people claim to see aliens becoming humans and living among us. Is this film another to prepare the world for the coming announcement we are being visited by alien life forms. http://www.apple.com/trailers/.....ox/avatar/
Vatican: It's Ok For Christians to Believe In Aliens
VATICAN CITY - Fox News reports there could be alien life forms and believing they exist isn't contradictory to having faith in God, the top astronomer at the Vatican said in an interview. In the Vatican newspaper piece, titled "The Extraterrestrial Is My Brother," the Rev. Jose Gabriel Funes said the expansiveness of the universe means there could be life on planets other than Earth.
"In my opinion this possibility exists," Funes, the director of the Vatican Observatory, told L'Osservatore Romano. "Astronomers believe the universe is made up of 100 billion galaxies, each of which consists of 100 billion stars. ... Life forms could exist in theory even without oxygen or hydrogen." Funes said that "there might even be other intelligent life out there, but believing in its existence doesn't pose a problem for those of the Catholic faith. It is possible. So far we have no proof. But certainly in a universe so big we can not exclude this hypothesis," he told the paper.
"As there is a multiplicity of creatures on earth, so there may be other beings, intelligent, created by God. This does not conflict with our faith, because we cannot put limits on the creative freedom of God." He said human beings could even consider another life form an "extraterrestrial brother" because it, too, would be one of God's creatures.
"How can we rule out that life may have developed elsewhere?" Funes said. "Just as we consider earthly creatures as 'a brother,' and 'sister,' why should we not talk about an 'extraterrestrial brother'? It would still be part of creation."The Bible "is not a science book, "but he said he continues to believe that "God is the creator of the universe and that we are not the result of chance." Funes urged the church and the scientific community to leave behind divisions caused by Galileo's persecution in 1633, four hundred years ago, saying the incident has "caused wounds." I the astronomer was tried as a heretic and forced to recant his theory that the Earth revolved around the sun. Church teaching at the time placed Earth at the center of the universe.
Pope John Paul declared in 1992 that the ruling against Galileo was an error resulting from "tragic mutual incomprehension." The Vatican Observatory has been at the forefront of efforts to bridge the gap between religion and science. Its scientist-clerics have generated top-notch research and its meteorite collection is considered one of the world's best. The observatory, founded by Pope Leo XIII in 1891, is based in Castel Gandolfo, a lakeside town in the hills outside Rome . It also conducts research at an observatory at th University of Arizona, in Tucson.
Florida Unlimited Horizons Talk
I just returned from Gulf Breeze, Florida where I spoke to over a hundred people for Unlimited Horizons UFO Group. I want to thank Don and Carol Ware and Allan Able for their wonderful hospitality. Many people assured me they are still seeing UFOs regularly around Gulf Breeze Pensacola area. Many are sighted going into and out of the Gulf of Mexico and the Bay. Frankly, I was over whelmed by my warm reception, kindness and love shown by this wonderful intelligent group of people in Gulf Breeze and the Fort Walton Beach Way of Life Unity Center. Thank you for a wonderful time and knowledgeable insights to the UFO phenomena.
United States Sightings
Arizona Webcam Object
PHOENIX -- Watching the webcam for about 25 minutes on January 12, 2010, when I noticed it pop out of the side. I have included a photo with enhancements for your records. We have kept our own records on this event. I figured I should report to you guys since I have no way of traveling down there. It was viewed at: http://www.webcamufo.com/Phoen.....xesmo.html Thanks to MUFON CMS
Arkansas Round Object
SUTTON -- I was in the front yard trying to take pictures of the moon on December 31, 2009. I am no photographer and only have a Cannon power shot A590. It was on the default settings but I had moved the dial to "Night Scene" I took several pictures over the course of an hour. I didn't hear or see anything out of the ordinary while I was outside. I also had binoculars and did not see this object when looking through them and I think I would have noticed it. I'm sure I would have been very excited to see it actually. I saw the 2 stars when I was looking through the camera but I did not see this.
Anyway the first picture I took also included this round thing above the moon. But it didn't show up on any of the other pictures and at no time while I was out side did I clean the lens. I was hoping you might be able to tell me what it is, and if not, will then you have another picture of something unidentified to add to your collection
CAPITOLA -- Throughout the last 25 years around my home town in Santa Cruz we have seen UFOs. I took this photo around 5 PM, in mid June 2003. I have seen many objects both day and night About half of these sighting occurred with other people around me. Three photos were taken one after another as fast as I could click. In the first one it was just the sun, the second and third contained what I always thought that was something maybe an object that was flying by.
Note: Three photos were sent and one photo showed the sun. The other two photos showed the object. The object looks similar in the two successive photos. It is not believed that the object is an anomaly produced by shooting into the sun. The object appears bigger in the second photo, but the object was magnified more in the second photo. The object looked to be flying northward. Thanks to William Puckett, UFOs Northwest http://ufosnw.com
MONTEREY -- On January 5, 2010, I saw the orb or ovni, above the local beaches I live on. I have seen this orb before and on occasion two of them in formation. They are really fascinating and I have been taking video of them for over six months now. The first sighting was in September of 2009. When I saw a very bright light flying over our ranch. I yelled to my brother to look and then we both ran downstairs and outside to get a better look. I was awestruck; it must have been only three thousand feet off the ground, a brilliant blue and whitish orb with an aura around it. I could instantly tell this was no airplane as it was totally silent. I ran in to get my little HD Sanyo camcorder but I could not turn it on! I think they are quite possibly coming from the depths of the ocean. They seem to come in waves, appearing for five to six nights in a row and then gone. It was a rather ominous feeling when they were right above us. Thanks to MUFON CMS
NORTH PORT -- I was sitting in my bathroom applying makeup, almost directly underneath the bathroom skylight at 1:22 PM on Thursday, December 3, 2009. Suddenly, something crossed over the skylight and dimmed the room substantially and within a seconds, there was a very loud explosion, as though something very heavy and large, hit the ground. The sound shook the house and sent all three of our cats into hiding. I did not hear one single sound, such as jet engine or other noise. I then went out to see if I could find anything. Our house is surrounded by dense woods.
I went onto the back but did not notice any unusual sounds, nor did I notice any smoke or fire. I did note a very odd odor, which I cannot identify. About 1:26 I telephoned the North Port Police Department and Dispatcher Martin stated ; other people in the neighborhood had contacted them about the noise and officers were en route. Two NP PD officers pulled in front of my home and three neighbors emerged agreeing to the loud extremely close noise.
The officers did not go into the woods to search and did not find a cause. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
MIAMI -- There was a hovering bright light high over the skyline that seemed out of place. The craft seemed to have a front green light and a pyramid shaped body which was larger in the rear with white, green and blue lights, but seemed to also change in size and form. The craft moved from one side of the skyline to the other. At times, it seemed to be a fireball; however the change in its distance from us was readily visible as it continued to move over the sky. Then it suddenly disappeared. Two minutes later perhaps the same or another craft appeared further to the west. So, we grabbed the camcorder. It was easy to see how the craft was moving in directions which are not the same as that of an airplane. It would change in distance as well as drift up and down in altitude and east/west in direction. After watching for about 20 minutes, it's still moving around and continuing to hover. Video is large and will be uploaded to YouTube.
PRINCETON -- I was driving south on I-169 five miles north of Milaca when I noticed an odd bright white light up at an altitude that could have been a jet without contrails. It then appeared to turn but I could see a craft of some sorts it was at a distance that the shape was undistinguishable, then all of a sudden I could no longer see it as if it just zoomed off. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Amelia -- There has been UFO activity in the area over many years along with cattle rustling with parts taken including ****, udder, and internal organs. There is no blood and very defined excisions. Picture to follow. Witness believes it was a cult but no visible evidence of human activity observed. Thanks to MUFON CMS
New York Lighted Object
Richford -- On January 10, 2010, around 6:30 PM, while I was walking my dog I noticed an odd pulsating light off to the west, towards Ithaca. I went inside to grab the camera, a Fujifilm S5000, and zoomed into the object under maximum zoom, 10 times optical and 2.2 times digital, and proceeded to use a pine tree to stabilize the image with near zero success. I took several pictures of the object and one video over a span of 15 to 20 minutes. My father who also saw the object, thought it was probably a plane. I'm an avid RC pilot, and have a good grasp of what planes can do. From what I can see the object had lights of various blues, whites, yellows, reds, and greens. Blue is not used in aircraft navigation lights. During the 15-20 minutes I watched the object it just kind of hovered over the hill. It continued to pulsate different intensities of whiteish light and sit right where it was for the duration of the viewing. At 6:45 PM, I went inside to warm up, when I headed back outside about a half hour later the object was gone. Thanks to MUFON CMS
TARLTON -- On January 2010, - Over the past few months beginning in summer of 2009, I have personally witnessed at least 130+ sightings of 'black triangles' literally in my front yard. I realize that I should've reported each and every sighting, but these reports take awhile to fill out. They always appear with a very bright yellowish/white/amber light in the distance and once they reach a certain distance the light disappears, leaving only an odd triangle craft that slowly hovers across the sky. The belly has a multitude of red, white and blue blinking lights in a strange almost eye-like pattern. The only noticeable noise is a low humming sound. The triangle object and the large object were moving slowly. The small object would take off fast for a short distance, stop on a dime and move sharply to my left, and then stop again to a dead stop. Then it would move for 15-20 minutes. Later, I saw one fly over but I was shocked as the triangle was 300+ feet across with dazzling lights which were vastly different from regular triangles.
Unlike other triangles, the bright light on the front didn't go off; it was clearly visible with a collection of three amber/white lights on the front. There were tons of white, red, blue and one green light, some blinking rapidly others staying on. Clearly visible was the outline of some kind of 'cargo-bay' on the back, almost like the kind you'd find on a military jumbo jet used for dropping and loading cargo. There where four whitish lights of the corners of the 'cargo-bay' and a noticeable slant to it. There were 'rabbit ear' protrusions from the sides with two 'Z' shaped wings on the top/side. On the tips of them there were elongated ovals, like a small jet engine. There was the usual humming noise and soft roar caused by the massive displacement of air as the triangle flew north at an altitude of 500 feet. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Tennessee Low Flying Large Disk
SPRING HILL -- About 10 PM, I walked outside to my truck on December 10, 2009, when I looked up to see an object overhead 3/4 of the way up from the horizon. The object was moving very slowly north. The object appeared to be disk shaped with several yellowish white lights and a red non-blinking light toward the middle of the object without sound and appeared to be the size of a house. It was 150'-500' from the ground. I ran into the house and yelled for my wife to come outside and look at this flying object. Upon going outside my wife saw the object as I got my camera and tried to capture the object but wasn't able to get a good shot. I called the local police department but the dispatcher told me that nothing was reported but would advise any officers in the area to keep a look out.
My neighbor who is a police officer then drove up and I told him what we saw when the object came back like it was circling back around. My neighbor thought it might be a military drone, but it looked a little too big to be a drone and was flying too slow. The object moved off to the west and appeared to turn up on its side so that you could see the top. After the object moved out of sight I asked my neighbor again. He said, "I don't know."
Whatever this object was, it was large, very slow moving and didn't make any noise. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
Texas Moon Anomaly
DALLAS -- I was driving to work at 5:45 AM on January 11, 2010, and I noticed the moon. There was what appeared to be something blocking out the bottom tip of the crescent moon. Further out from where the tip of the crescent moon would have extended was a white light. The opaque object "sat" stationary from the time I left my house to the time I got to work (approx. 30 minutes). After the sun had come up it was gone. I attached a rendering of what I saw. This is not a photo.
Editor's Note: The brilliant star Antares was very close to the waning crescent Moon on Monday, January 11, 2010.
AUBURN -- In the early morning at 1:10 AM, on December 6, 2009, I was traveling northbound on Interstate 167, when I saw the first of two low flying lighted hovering objects over the interstate at an estimated altitude of 1000 feet. The first object or lights appeared to be a couple miles ahead of me and my view consisted of two unusually large and bright white lights beside each other. My index finger at arm's length barely covered it. The two lights were blinking one then the other at a slow pace brighter than I have ever viewed on an aircraft. As I got closer, I realized that there was nothing underneath the lights. The lights were intensely bright still slowly flashing in the same pattern. I eventually drove directly under the lights and was unable to make out the shape. I noticed a smaller flashing light underneath the two bright lights that were flashing red, green and white. The lights all appeared to be stationary.
The second object or lights were one quarter of a mile farther away. Just as the first lights initially appeared as two very large bright lights side by side so did the second with exception that the two lights were not blinking at any time and were bright green. The green lights appeared to be stationary over the interstate at the same altitude as the first. As I continued northbound I eventually drove under it and again noticed smaller quickly flashing colored light beneath this one and was unable again to discern the actual shape of the object. As I was about to drive under it my car was approached by two other cars that came from behind me and both sped past as if they had not even seen the very large low flying intensely bright green lights which I found very odd as the lights were so brilliant I found it hard to look away and had slowed my rate of speed to continue watching them.
After passing the second lights I decided to take the Tukwila exit in an attempt to take a front road back to view the lights. A minute later I could no longer see either of them anymore. (NUFORC Note: The person who submitted this report is well known to NUFORC, and highly reliable.) Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
Wisconsin Cylinder UFO
LOMIRA -- I was traveling south on US-41 near Lomira on January 11, 2010, and while observing some unusual clouds I noticed what looked like a white rod or possibly the edge of a white disc towards the east.
It looked very solid and straight and I could see both ends of it. I was able to take two photographs of the object and then lost site of it as I drove south. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Argentina Disc Photo
BUENOS AIRES -- This photograph was taken in the area of the mountain range of Berries, Olavarria, in the providence of Buenos Aires on December 26, 2009. The photographer did not see this object when he took the picture but noticed it later when he downloaded his photos. The photo was analyzed by Patricio J. Precipices, who concluded that the UFO was indeed a solid object and was present when the photo was taken. Many investigators in Argentina call this object "Ghost UFO's", which indicate that the object was present at the time of the taking of the photograph but the human eye could not perceive it. Thanks to UFO Casebook and Ken Pfeifer MUFON N.J.
Borneo Object Hovering Over Water
TUNGKU BEACH -- I was going on a photo assignment during New Years Eve, heading toward a resort hotel to cover the fireworks display. I positioned myself at a Tungku Beach facing the hotel from a distance, so that I could catch the fireworks and the hotel all in one frame. When the fireworks started, I began firing shots with my camera using a cable release connected to my Canon EOS 5D digital camera + Canon 70-200MM F2.8 IS (L) lens. The fireworks were at the Empire Hotel and Country Club. They lasted for about 20-30 minutes. Without checking my LCD screen on my camera as most of the shots were burst frames, I left the area. When I was processing the RAW images captured from the camera, I realized there was one shot which had something appearing on the left side of the screen so I zoomed in to see what it was. I was shocked! In the image, the object seemed to be hovering above the water, and it looked as if it was not too far away from us. Thanks to MUFON CMS
AJAX/WHITBY, ONTARIO -- This cloud ring picture attached was taken at 1:12PM EST, while on Highway 401 east on January.3rd, 2010 The entire sky was clouded in observation. What atmospheric condition caused this single cloud ring to appear, south near Lake Ontario? Thanks to Paul Michael Shishis
TRYSIL -- I was on my way in a car to a ski resort in Norway from Sweden before the sun had risen at 8:20 AM a object appeared in the sky on January 2, 2010. It was round white with a flat top and was glowing a bright white surrounded with a ring of red light. It just appeared in sky from nowhere very fast and two seconds later it faded out, but this time much slower and disappeared. It appeared over a mountain approximately 500 meters above the mountain top and 5,000 meters ahead of my car. The skies were very clear that day so you could see for a large distance.
A few minutes later a new light appeared, but this time at a much greater distance and still dead ahead of my car, but this time it stayed in the sky for a few minutes and then just faded out and disappeared. It was not an airplane or the sun raising nor the moon. It looked to be about 30 meters in diameter and when it faded out it started to fade out at the top of the object and finished at the bottom. I drew a crappy sketch of the object in Paint.
Note: The witness has described two sightings of lights exhibiting unusual behavior. Nocturnal lights have been recorded and studied extensively in Norway and Sweden. To my knowledge the causation of these light phenomena has not been explained. Thanks to William Puckett, UFOs Northwest http://ufosnw.com
Russia admits missile caused UFO lights
A spectacular spiral light show in the sky above Norway on Wednesday was caused by a Russian missile that failed just after launch, according to Russia's defense ministry.
When the rocket motor spun out of control, it likely created the heavenly spiral of white light near where the missile was launched from a submarine in the White Sea.
The Russian Defense Ministry confirmed that a Bulava ballistic missile test had failed. MSNBC.com (photo) Dagfinn Rapp via Space.com
UK/England - Wales
BRIDLINGTON, EAST YORKSHIRE -- My Grandson and his girlfriend were walking to my house on January 1, 2010, at 7:30 PM when they spotted a bright orange light in the sky. He took some video of it on his mobile phone to show me. Looking at the video the light doesn't appear to be very high up, but it is moving very erratically, backwards/forwards and up/down. It moved very quickly with sudden changes in direction. The video is looking down a street with street lights visible. One street light is quite close up and the others are further away. Because the road is at the top of a slight hill the video is looking towards rooftops of buildings and a supermarket in the distance. The object appears to come in front of the nearest street light then darts back the way it came 3 or 4 times before disappearing. The video only lasts for 31 seconds, but it is very interesting. This is the second time they have seen something like this in this area. The first time was a few weeks ago.
Note: The orange light is moving relative to the street lights so some of the movement of the light is not due to movement of the camera. The motion of the light on the video is consistent with what the witnesses observed! Thanks to William Puckett, UFOs Northwest http://www.ufosnw.com
GREAT ORME, WALES -- I watched three star-like objects approach in a straight course, one after the other from the north shore of Llandudno over the Great Orme. They were low in the sky moving at a steady pace with yellow, orange, green lights, and very bright like stars. I watched with my 16-year-old daughter for about ten minutes before they disappeared over the houses to the left of my house heading west toward Ireland. It was a very cold night (minus 3c), and very clear although there was a freezing fog. We went to bed after they had gone, but got up ten minutes later when we heard the sound of a helicopter and planes over the Great Orme. We assume they had been dispatched to seek the strange objects. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Last post before bed, finally tired enough to sleep. If former CIA Director Admiral Hillenkoetter made UFO comments to Congress, he did so before he died in 1982.
Blame it on one of my computer classes. I spent four hours looking stuff up and switching between two browsers to complete a module for college. Curiously, one of the harder items to pin down was description of GUI browsers, in spite of the fact that we almost all use them daily. Aliens abducting Internet info, maybe? 😉
Have fun, & good night/morning!
