MUFON Skywatch Investigations March 6, 2002,
Majorstar@AOL.COM. Webmaster: Chuck Warren

UFOs were observed over New York, New Jersey, Maryland, West Virginia, Georgia, Florida,
Ohio, Kentucky, Utah, California, Oregon, Washington, Canada, Chili, and the UK.

Cylinder shaped UFOs are spotted in West Virginia, Florida, Ohio, and diving into the Straights
of Magellan in Southern Chile indicating a possible new wave of sightings.

trying to keep on top of the STS 109 shuttle mission. The astronauts attached a second powerful
25-foot solar wing to the Hubble Space Telescope on March 5, 2002, with ease. It was the
second of five excursions planned this week by space shuttle Columbia's telescope-repair team.
Astronaut James Newman said ''Beautiful day for a space walk,'' as he left the shuttle.
''Incredible,'' said Michael Massimino, a first-time space walker. Jeff says I found a real anomaly
event that I'll send later. It needs to have a transcript of the audio part to go with the video, and
that will take time. However, I have one for you now. It's actually a reflection of the flat end of
Hubble Space Telescope in the payload bay camera lens. Some NASA affiliated debunkers have
been claiming that the "UFO nuts" (ME??) would surely make hay out of it, so I'm defusing that
one right now. Anyone who sends you a p! hoto as a UFO is hoaxing you, and you should be
forewarned. The photo could make a pretty convincing "flying saucer" to the untrained eye. I'll try
to get you an article on the real story by tomorrow night. It could make a nice current events
piece on STS-109.

All is well with Columbia, and the HST servicing mission. Things have been right on schedule.
One thing I noticed during liftoff and ascent though, was that in the moments just before SRB
separation, it appeared that there was some "O" Ring leakage in the port side SRB rocket. This
same sort of flame leakage caused the Challenger disaster. Thanks to Jeff Challender

sighted in NJ sky by two witnesses on February 14, 2002. Both witnesses are adults and one
witness Gordon Dillard is a college student and the other works in law enforcement. An NJ State
Employee sent a report to NUFORC, while the other contacted MUFON. I personally talked to
the second witness a college student from North Carolina who was driving through New Jersey
early in the morning. They report seeing a glowing blue sphere over 40.34N 74.37 W in
Somerset County. The witnesses were separated and saw the object from different locations in a
fairly clear sky, around 1:00 AM. Gordon reports seeing a solid source of light from rear that
was circular. The light was twenty feet in diameter and circular moving from west to east. It
appeared to descend below the trees as observed from the highway. It was larger than fireworks,
and seemed to be traveling too fast to stop. Gordon said, I! t looked like it landed in the
wetlands. east tonortheast of Exit 30, on Route 287. He went to the police station (24) to notify
them of the incident, thinking it might have crashed. Gordon felt it moved too fast for a normal
aircraft. Didn't seem to have the mass of a normal aircraft. The two individuals in two different
localities reported seeing a large blue object about the size of a three-story building going east
across the sky descending. Each witness separately provided a sketch of the object. Both
sketches match almost identically in every detail even though the witnesses presumably do not
know each other and have never met. The duration of sighting by the student was for less than a
minute and he thought the object may have crashed in a watery area east of Route 287.

Dr. Bruce Cornet is investigating the January 15, and makes the following comments to the
witness. "Thanks to the video you sent me and excellent description of the event using a model of
the craft. What I didn't realize is that the craft turned right rather than left, which makes sense
now that you provided landmarks and visual aids. I suspect the triangle dropped down into the
narrow field behind the house at 260 Midland Lake Rd. I also think, based on your detailed
description, that the triangle crossed the highway just north of the Nevele Grande billboard and
over the pair of Crosses to the east of that billboard. I thank you for the photographs showing
many of the landmarks. I didn't realize that the billboard also said that Nevele Grande is in
Ellenville, NY. This is important, because as you may recall it was Ellen Crystall who started all
of the interest in the Pine Bush Phenomenon and it is the next exit on Rt.! 17 for Rt. 302 that
takes you to Pine Bush. Based on your model, the craft you saw is remarkably like the one
described by police officers in Illinois during the sightings there in 2000. In the video you sent me
you note that Freeze Road. intersects Midland Lake Road. at the base of the hill containing the
crosses and billboard. I find that name ironic considering that we have been trying to "freeze" the
event you witnessed in description, model, photographs, and satellite images, similar to what
Michael Brockhoff did for the Discovery Channel documentary, UFO over Illinois. Thanks to
Bruce Cornet, Ph.D., Geologist, Paleobotanist, Palynologist see Editor's Note: It seemed unlikely that a craft the size of a
737 as described by the witness could land so close to Route 17, however, aerial photos of the
area show a large concrete landing pad.

MARYLAND ROCKET OR MISSILE? BALTIMORE -- Aviation officials are investigating an
incident in which something -- possibly a model rocket -- flew near a Southwest Airlines jet as it
approached Baltimore, Maryland, on March Sunday night. The pilot of Southwest Flight 454
reported seeing what he thought was a model rocket pass on the left side of the aircraft as the
plane was about 12 miles southeast of Baltimore-Washington International Airport at 7:10 p.m.
EST, Federal Aviation Administration and Southwest Airlines officials said. The aircraft was
about 3,000 feet high at the time, the FAA said. It landed without problem. The incident also has
been reported to the FBI, said FAA spokeswoman Arlene Salac. Federal regulations prohibit
people from operating model rockets within five miles of any airport and in a manner "that creates
a collision hazard with other aircraft." Rockets are also prohibited between sunset and sunrise. -

girlfriend saw an object hanging in the sky over Fife or Puyallup on February 11, 2002. His
girlfriend pointed it out. The witness stated, "I tried to reason that it might be a balloon or fire
works. At 11:50 PM, my brain raced with reasonable answers but none fit the M.O. I quickly
ran and grabbed my camera and took four or five shots. On the last one I braced myself against a
pole to hold steady. Maybe that one will turn out. The sky was black, except for the orange glow
of this object bouncing and moving erratically around the sky. It would move slow and steady in
one direction, then suddenly move quickly about the night sky. It seemed to have no apparent
direction in mind. As it moved south we jumped into the truck to follow and parked on 10th
Avenue in Milton and watched it moving to the south and east. The orange glow coming from
below the object was bright, but would at times glow brig! hter then fade some. It seemed to get
eight to ten miles away, then it started moving back toward and to the west of where we were.
At it's closest point to us the orange glow faltered then grew stronger. As it grew stronger it
instantaneously released a shower of sparks, almost resembling a fire work being shot from the
sky toward the ground. This happened twice very quickly. Both pulses of fire could be seen
hailing down toward the earth at the same time. There also was a slight audible release when
these showers erupted from the object. It sounded like a very soft pop, kind of like popping a
finger out of the corner of one's mouth very quietly. We drove toward the Fife Valley for a better
look and parked when the object started to move about very rapidly. It made a quick move to
the west, so fast that it was almost as if you blinked and it had moved a quarter mile already. We
drove less then two city blocks to th! e valley for a better look, but it disappeared into the
southern sky in an instant. The object looked like an inverted cylinder with an orange glow
coming from the bottom of the it. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

GEORGIA BRIGHT LIGHT DISK CONYERS -- As the witness walked through his kitchen, a
bright light caught my attention outside on February 17, 2002. There in the sky above the tree
lines was an object that appeared to move left to right and visa-versa very fast at 10:30 PM. The
object had orange, green and blue lights that seemed to rotate as if the object was spinning. I
called my son and we watched as this object went from left to right as it ascended upwards into
the sky. I ran into another room to get my digital camera so that I could get a photo, but my
security alarm sounded and so I was distracted by trying to turn it off. The security company
called to verify my password. By the time everything had calmed back down, I ran outside with
my camera, but could not focus in on the object. By this time it was high up so I tried focusing
with the camera but it just disappeared. Make no mistake, this was no plane, no helicopter!
There is no machine that I kn! ow of that could fly as spastic as this thing! The weird thing is that
when my alarm sounded it was not even set! I found it very strange that it sounded at the very
moment I picked up my camera! LAVONIA -- Two witnesses were on I-85 heading towards
Atlanta on February 17, 2002, when they saw what at first appeared to be a plane crashing at
4:00 PM. The object was red with a long tail coming from it. The witness reports "My Mom and
I decided that it must be a meteor, however in a few minutes, the tail disappeared and the object
began climbing up towards another object in the sky that we had not at first noticed." The two
objects were beside one another for a few seconds, then one went straight up into the sky, and
the second one began to descend. The one that was climbing up looked kind of like a squid
because of the twin trails of smoke coming from behind it. We lost the descending one behind
trees in the distance, and the ascending one became blocked from our view by the sun. There
were a lot of other cars on the interstate during this event. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

miles out in the in the Gulf of Mexico, on February 16, 2002, reports seeing jets investigating an
object over Gulf. Five unusually slow flying fighter jets heading southeast between us and the
coast at 3:00 PM. As they flew further down the coast, we noticed a strange white stationary
object above and in front of fighters. The jets looked to be investigating the object.

HAVANA -- The witness reports he was approaching US-27 from the east on a Gadsden
County dirt road on February 14, 2002, when he saw a streak of very bright white light in the
west at 6:35 AM. It was traveling from the vicinity of Tallahassee in a northern direction at a very
high rate of speed. It was dawn and there were no stars visible at that time of the morning. The
streak lasted for a second or two. It had a very bright point followed by a trail of light. It streaked
across the sky, then made a sudden 90 degree turn to the left. At first, I thought it was a meteor,
but then realized that a meteor can't turn suddenly.  Editor's Note: These UFOs are frequently
video taped from the space shuttle.

POMPANO BEACH -- On Sunday, February 24, 2002, on a clear blue sunny sky the witness
was sitting in his backyard at around 4:20 PM when a flock of what seemed to be baby crows
flew over and landed on the telephone wires above his head. He looked up and saw a cigar
shaped object just to the right of where he were watching the birds. This object was an orange
cylinder or cigar-shaped with a yellow tip. The witnesses watched this object fly from east to
west and almost directly overhead when they were distracted for a couple seconds and it
completely disappeared from the sky. This couldn't have flown off in any other direction. We
walked around the whole duplex and could see for miles, but nothing was in sight not even a
plane. The birds had flown off in fright when the back door suddenly swung open and the object
was still visible. I have never had birds in my backyard in such numbers either. The telephone
lines were covered with! baby crows. Perhaps they chose not tofly with a cylinder in the sky.

a downed helicopter, then a meteor shower, but whichever it was caused the U.S. Coast Guard
to launch a rescue boat Wednesday, February 13, 2002, and search Lake Erie off the mouth of
the Black River." " Sightings of red lights or flashes thought to be two miles (3 kilometers
offshore) from the Elyria Water Work started being reported on Lorain (Ohio) police radio
transmissions around 8 p.m." "'We're out there doing search patterns,' said a dispatcher for the
Lorain Coast Guard station, but nothing was reported being found late last night." " Lorain police
dispatchers said they had nothing to report." " Lights from helicopters or possibly commercial
planes were later seen in the air above where the Coast Guard boat combed the waters." " Also
traveling the airways were reports of unusual lights being seen from Bay Village to Toledo, and
Coast Guard radio traffic indicated a he! licopter had been dispatched to take a look along the
(lake) shore." (See The Morning Journal of Lorain, Ohio for February 14, 2002, "Unidentified
red lights seen in night sky." Copyright 2002 by The Morning Journal, all rights reserved.)
Eyewitness T.S. reported, "I did not see it, but I may have 'heard' it. Over the late evening, there
were several concussion-like sounds like sonic booms. They shook and rattled the windows of
my cottage in Bay Village near the shorefront of Lake Erie." Thanks to T.S. for the Morning
Journal news article and his report.) (Joseph Trainor's Comments: This isn't the first time we've
had an unidentified submerged object (USO) on the bottom of Lake Erie. A similar case
occurred in Ashtabula, Ohio a year ago.) Thanks to UFO ROUNDUP, Vol. 7, #9, February 26,

driving on route 25 south toward Cincinnati and saw what appeared to be very small jet airplanes
with flashing lights that were much faster and somehow different from regular aircraft on February
17, 2002." These "jets" were flying faster than other planes. We saw one next to a regular
airplane and it seemed very small, fast and agile. At 10:00 PM, we saw three going from north to
south within approximately 20 seconds of each other and then throughout the hour we saw
periodic "jets" in the area. The craft did make a very quiet jet like sound. These were much faster
and more agile than normal planes. The "jet" had one red light that stayed on consistently and then
a flashing red light and two white strobing lights. The speed, agility and strobing lights are what
differ from regular planes. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

UTAH SPHERE SALT LAKE CITY -- Dave Rosenfeld reports a small object showed up
while out doing our Flyby skywatch today at around 2:13 PM for four minutes. It showed up
again at 2:19 to 2:33 PM, flying east really slowly till it went over the mountain towards
Emigration Canyon. I was using my 500 mm lens at f~ 5.6, and took ten to twelve pictures?
There was a couple photos with the object by the moon. It was a shiny silvery object with an
estimated size of 20 feet in diameter. It did not make fantastic moves or anything, just a slow
hover-like movement. I was quite surprised since I didn't expect anything to show up, but I'm
glad I watched. You can read more about it at Thanks to Dave Rosenfeld, The
Utah UFO Hunters.

craft suddenly popped into view at 7:00 PM, forming a triangle on February 8, 2002. The craft
would fluctuate in position and sometimes freeze in position. The right corner craft would leave
the formation and slowly follow the air traffic lane, which goes right through there, then suddenly
reappear near the triangle again. The witness noticed a red glow on the ground and sometimes
electricity could be seen around the red light on the ground. Then a small red light would come
out of it and seem to float to a craft alongside the triangle hovering amongst the tree top level. The
receiving craft and one of the triangle craft would brighten and twinkle when this would happen.
Then the right corner craft would slowly leave and follow the air path again ... and reappear a few
minutes later. This was a movement pattern repeated several times. We were building up feelings
of hatred, telling them to ! go home, and when we would project this at them, and twice I saw
them *duck* or swoop, as if avoiding a projectile. I have noticed single craft in that area for a
couple of years now, but this was the first show with multiple craft.

KLAMATH FALLS -- The witness reports seeing a wing shaped UFO with several lights or
reflections on February 17, 2002. The craft soared like a bird, but not in a straight path at 12:40
AM. He saw the object for about one minute but it made no sound. The UFO moved very fast
and the shape of the wing seemed to change as if there were pivot points. There was no fuselage
only wings. The witness stated, "I have no idea what it could be, but these objects were definitely
mechanical.  OREGON BORDER -- An array of lights was reported to the UFO Research team
near the Nevada, California border on February 12, 2002. Jean Eric Byler reports 16 miles
south of Ft. Bidwell there were a few sightings over Fee Reservoir. Bright orange lights were
seen by a man soaking in his hot tub around 7:45 PM. His attention was drawn to a bright orange
light suddenly appearing in the northeast that was visible for about two seconds. It was just on
and off. This was followed in turn by two lights, one light, three lights, one light, two lights, etc.
Perhaps a total of about a dozen lights. They were miles apart and not associated with any
populated area or roads. He called to his wife and she also saw three lights appear at once and
she felt they were not naturally occurring phenomena. The last light seen that night occurred when
the man was reporting his sightings to me via telephone, at 8:00 PM. The couple also call! ed a
friend that lived in the town to the north and asked them to look outside. The man went outside
and saw the object at 8:00 PM. A sighting, several years ago, was filmed with a video camera for
two seconds before the couple tried to zoom in on the objects. The camera lost focus, but the
existing footage was sent to Jeff Sainio to be analyzed. Jeff estimated the lights to be from a UFO
approximately 750 feet in diameter.  The first and possibly only photo documentation of UFOs
and abductions occurring together was in this area. Many of these events have had multiple
witnesses, some with photo documentation. I believe this sighting to be another in a long series of
sightings to occur here. Thanks to NUFORC and Jean Bilodeaux in Northern California.

The witness reports seeing a large saucer shaped object on February 9, 2002, which appeared
to have a ring around it. It's color changed somewhat from the color of the moon to a soft amber
at 9:15 PM. It hovered over a distant hill in the state forest, which is unpopulated and a
wilderness. We watched the object move to different positions within the same area without a
sound. At one point we thought the object was coming towards us, but it reverted back to its'
position over the hill. We watched the object for twenty minutes then it appeared to land behind
the hill out of our sight, leaving only a yellow to amber glow highlighting the hill. Thanks to Peter
Davenport NUFORC

CANADA FLYING TRIANGLE KING CITY, ONTARIO -- I saw a large triangular outline
of red and white lights that seemed to hover and then move very slowly pass my car on February
13, 2002. I was driving westbound on the King sideroad and as I approached the traffic lights at
Jane St. at 8:00 PM, I saw a large, stationary, triangular object. I could not actually see a solid
object but rather the impression of an object was created due to a triangular pattern of lights. The
lights were white, red and a third color (blue or green). The lights seemed to be over a major
Highway 400 so I thought it was a traffic plane. When I stopped at the traffic lights and the
object didn't move I thought it might be a helicopter. It was the large outline (roughly hand size)
and the triangular shape that made me wonder if it was in fact something else. As I left the traffic
lights and continued to the overpass I was able to watch the object pass from my front to my
driver's side window. I was driving very! slowly and the object may have been moving very
slowly in the opposite direction. I lost sight of the object as I descended the other side of the
overpass. All of my window's were closed but my radio was not on. I do not remember hearing
any noises.

BURLINGTON -- The witness was out smoking on the porch at 9:00 PM, on February 13,
2002, and noticed an X shape object high in the sky. At first, it was hardly visible until it suddenly
burst into flames. It quickly flew down far in the distance, with a white flash, and no sound was
heard. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

PRINCE GEORGE -- Brian Vike received a long distance call from Vanderhoof, British
Columbia just a while ago and these two witnesses watched three bright lights just a few
kilometers south of Prince George, British Columbia. Plus there were others who already had
pulled over to the side of the road to view these lights on February, 15, 2002 at around 11:30
PM. Thanks to Brian Vike  Editor's Note: Reports of unidentified flying
objects increased a staggering 42 per cent last year in Canada.

president of AION group the most important research UFO group of Chile) and Director of
Chilean MUFON writes, "On February 17, 2002, a family made one very interesting video of the
UFO over the sea in the Straights of Magellan. The video shows one cigar shape very clear to
150 meters from the witness. It had two lights on each end of the object and it disappeared into
the sea. The lights changed color and appeared to change the structure in a strange way. The
Chilean Navy does not have an explanation for the sighting. Thanks to Rodrigo Fuenzalida. The
object appears as a large elongated metal cylinder. It is difficult to estimate size but, it appears
about the size and shape of a cargo ship. Please go to their website for images.

ENGLAND CIRCLE OF LIGHTS GATWICK AIRPORT -- A retired telecom engineer Jerry
Horlan, stood in his Broadfield kitchen at 5:00 AM on January 31, and he was gripped by an
eerie sense that he was not alone. He was astounded to see a circle of strange lights hovering
over the south side of Gatwick Airport. He explained: "I had been up all night and was just
making myself a cup of coffee when I saw something very strange out of the window. "Hovering
over the south side of the airport were 12 bright lights circling slowly round. "I just could not
believe what I was witnessing." The father-of-two tracked the objects for more than an hour until
dawn began to break last Thursday morning and the lights slowly moved away from the airport
and disappeared. Mr. Horlan, 58, who lives in Farnham Close, Broadfield, continued: "It was a
unique experience. I have traveled all around the world and never seen anything like that before.
"I am not saying it was definitely a UFO but! it would be good to get some sortof explanation to
account for what I saw." The skies over Gatwick Airport have seen a number of close
encounters over the years with witnesses reporting seven suspected UFO sightings alone in the
summer of 1996. This prompted skywatcher Larry Dean, from Brighton's Skysearch agency to
suggest aliens were watching Gatwick to study earthly air travel. But Government officials and
BAA have continued to dismiss these strange events and refused to recognize the existence of
UFOs. Commenting on the latest spotting, a BAA spokesman said: "We have run a check and
can report nothing out of the ordinary at that time, but we have passed the information on to air
traffic control which is looking into it." Thanks to Gary Farshores and Crawley News via Surrey

LIFE ON MARS For life to be present on Mars scientists agree that there must first be water.
The Odyssey spacecraft is now surveying for evidence of underground water and new analysis
indicates water is abundant on Mars particularly in the South Pole area. My photo analysis of
ancient forts, geometric construction, temples indicate life was once abundant on Mars and may
have actually gone underground. We may have to wait for men actually visiting the ancient sites to
gather real proof. Based on my photo analysis I believe there has been life on Mars because of
the presence of alien artifacts and unnatural formations that include Cydonia. I agree that that this
is one of the most provocative enigmas confronted in the history of science. I admit there are
many geologic and natural forces working on Mars that defy explanation. Last week, Art Bell's
Radio show discussed various anomalies that can be seen on his website at
Howev! er, my analysis is not based on the anomalies shown here which are probably natural.
My primary data is based on the Russian Phobos 2 IR images showing what appears to an
underground city. Phobos data, released on Canadian TV, presents an infrared scan radiometer
image of the Martian surface that showed clearly defined rectangular areas. These are
interconnected with a latticework of perfectly straight lines that resemble city blocks,
underground temples, reservoirs and manufacturing complexes. The heat signature of what may
be a set of underground caverns or channels are just too geometrically regular to be formed
naturally. According to Dr. John Becklake of the London Science Museum, "The city-like pattern
is 60 kilometers wide and could be easily be mistaken for an aerial view of Los Angeles." I would
be happy to reveal these photos to Congress as part of the Disclosure Project.

PHOTO At the end of the E-bay online auction of March 4, 2002, Independent-International
Pictures Corp. president Samuel M. Sherman announced that his company had won at auction
the oldest known UFO photograph. After several days of feverish bidding, Sherman won the
photo for his company in the last 50 seconds of the auction with a final high bid of $385. The
photograph is a winter 1870 stereo (3-D) view of clouds over Mount Washington in New
Hampshire. Plainly and sharply visible in the photo is a long cigar-like object. Since this is before
known manned flight (with the exception of balloons - which this is not) the object will have to be
ruled as a solid Unidentified Flying Object. Structure to this solid object is clearly and sharply
seen in some detail as is the reflection of the sun off the object. The stereo view presents two
images (for right and left eye) which will be helpful in further analysis of it. Sherman reported that
due t! o the sharpness of the image it will lend itself to further copying and enlargement for study.
Sherman also stated that this photograph will not be locked up in some collection, but will be
submitted to scientists for detailed analysis and the results made available to the public, which he
says wants answers to the UFO mystery. Sherman states that the debunkers are already circling
around the photo on the internet, even though they have only been able to see poor low
resolution computer images and not photographic enlargements of the actual photo. He expects
this photo to be very controversial for a long time still to come. Sherman and
Independent-International Pictures Corp. have already produced the Edwards Air Force Base
Encounter, one hour audio documentary of the UFO alert at Edwards Air Force Base in 1965
( Since 1992 a feature film docudrama has been in research and
production. It is called, "BEYOND THIS EARTH" and concerns extraterrestrial visitation of
Planet Earth. Filming for this movie has taken place internationally as well as the acquisition of
UFO footage from locations all over the world. The most amazing part of this project was the
1993 expedition which sent up a plane with photographic, motion picture and video equipment to
! successfully pursue and imag! e UFOs over Northern California. Sherman stated that the 1870
UFO photograph will have a place in "BEYOND THIS EARTH" and further projects to be
released to the public. Thanks to Sam Sherman  NEW NASA SHUTTLE VIDEO OF UFOs

Jeff Challender has prepared a new tape of various UFOs that were caught on recent Shuttle
video footage. Jeff has over a hour-long tape of UFOs shot in space that he detected after
spending hundreds of hours watching the shuttle broadcasts from the Shuttle missions. Even those
onboard the shuttle are unlikely to see what Jeff does. Using Jeff's directions you will be able to
learn the difference between space junk, ice crystals and real UFOs. Send $25 to: Jeff

The Mars Odyssey spacecraft proves Mars has water.

writes, I've been trying to keep on top of March 5, 2002, STS 109 shuttle mission. The astronauts
have repaired the Hubble Space Telescope and a reflection of the flat end of Hubble Space
Telescope in the payload bay camera lens showed a possible UFO. Sorry the photo could make a
pretty convincing "flying saucer" to the untrained eye. There was an anomalous event on STS-109,
during the HST capture. I must get you a copy of it. It's laughable! There were strobing objects, two
of which were flying in formation, and the Capcom was trying his damnedest to get the Shuttle
commander Scott Altman to make some sort of remark about it, and he more or less sidestepped the
issue. He said he really didn't look out the windows with a critical eye, and tried to leave it at that.
The Capcom kept at it, and he still wouldn't commit. It was like the old saying. Ask me no questions,
I'll tell you no lies. At least that's how I saw it. Contact Jeff for the video. Thanks to Jeff Challender, Editor's Note: NASA says that ice crystals came off the engine bell
housing and appear as glittering prisms of light.

One of my fellow Disclosure Project witnesses, Mr. Harland Bentley says: "I have been in a graduate
program for nuclear engineering…and have been working contracts since 1963: NASA, Department
of Energy, and several other electronics firms in the DC area. I was at a facility in California….doing
classified work…which I can't say too much about…..Our astronauts were doing a loop around the
moon… in 1967 or 1968…
I heard them say they had a bogey [term used to denote UFOs]…it was
another type of ship. There were portals there that they could see in. They could see beings of some
sort. They did not describe these beings, they just took photographs. They just said it was a saucer
shaped craft. Then they said, 'There they go,' and they [the bogey] went out of sight almost
immediately." Thanks to the Disclosure Project

MARS HAS VAST AREAS OF WATER  PASADENA -- We have been telling the readers of
these files for years that water abounds on Mars. NASA's Mars Odyssey spacecraft has now found
strong evidence of vast areas of Mars have water. The water is believed to be ice mixed in with the
dirt, dust and rock that form the top three feet of the planet's surface. William Boynton of the
University of Arizona and chief scientist for the spacecraft instrument that measures the abundance of
hydrogen says. "The suggestion that water is present in such quantities could bolster the theory that
the planet could have harbored life." `The results are exceeding our expectations,'' said Roger Gibbs,
the Odyssey deputy project manager for JPL. Odyssey, even though it is less than two weeks into a
mapping mission expected to last at least 917 days, is already changing scientists' view of the planet,
said R. Stephen Saunders, Odyssey project scientist for JPL. The spacecraft is intended to map the
chemical and elemental makeup of the Martian surface and hunt for water and hot springs that could
indicate geothermal activity. Another instrument, designed to measure the planet's radioactive
environment and the risks it may hold for any future astronauts, has malfunctioned. However, initial
data collected before the instrument ceased working suggests that en route to Mars, astronauts
would be bombarded with about twice as much radiation as are the crew members orbiting the
Earth. Thanks to Mars Odyssey:

the viewer sees in the image in the below link is a picture of a wooden "MASK:" Pictures of this
"wooden mask" came from Bill Moore in 1994. There is a big story behind how Bill got those
pictures which will be divulged at a later time. The bottom half of the picture shows what has been
determined to be "National Security Agency" (NSA) and USAF labels on the lower back bottom of
the wooden mask or, "NSA #731" and "USAF-DOD SK (SIC?) 557 or 237" (note, this is even
harder to read on a JPG image). As one source just said, "the reason NSA had it is because this
same face appeared in a figure photographed on the Martian surface in 1978. This same face (and
similar impression) was photographed on the ground ~300 miles northeast of the other face that was
photographed on Mars. " Robert Collins says, "
I keep thinking of the Fish Gods talked about in
Sumerian/Abyssian legends
...ala Zecharia Sitchin ... Also, my theory is the Aliens created these
figures/structures (if they prove to be real) on the surface of Mars to give us "hints" just like the "hints"
with crop circles. There just wasn't enough time for advanced life to have evolved on Mars. "See:

recent sightings of a triangular and diamond-shaped craft have been spotted along Route 52 between
Flurry Road and Pine Bush, and on Route 17 (Gareth, on February 13, 2002) between exit 120 for
Middletown and exit 119 for Pine Bush (Salvatore Cirami, 12 Jan. 2002). Further investigation
reveals the craft flew over Freeze Road. The craft flipped onto it's left side, and traveled in a vertical
orientation for a short distance before making a hard left turn -- a "right angle" turn to the left. Mr.
Cirami was able to see the lights on the bottom of the triangle because the craft flipped vertical before
turning. Once it turned northwest, the top of the craft blocked the lights. Then the triangle rotated into
a horizontal mode, followed by it dropping like a rock out of sight into a field. That field was
correctly identified by Mr. Ciramin on aerial photographs after he went back to the location and
retraced his steps. The craft did not drop down over any concrete landing platform. What looks like
a concrete platform on the aerial photograph is actually a very large building with a light colored roof,
which is located on top of the hill where the sign and crosses are located. Hope this clears up the
confusion. It is important for your readers to realize that these types of performances appear to be
staged events. The triangle disappeared in as unlikely an area for such a large craft as the many craft I
have witnessed near Montgomery, NY, disappearing into farm fields between tree rows. You have
witnessed it with me.  I suspect that these areas were chosen by ETI to indicate where skywatchers
should go if they want to resume sky watching again. Off of Midland Lakes Road is a short dead-end
road called, Freeze Road. It has a culdesac right next to Route 17, as well as a pull-off and bench for
people to sit at. To the north is a hill, upon which rests a large billboard sign for Nevele Grande hotel
in Ellenville. I don't know of any similar pull-off along Route 52, which has a similar good vista for
viewing aerial craft. Pine Bush enacted an ordinance to stop skywatching, or at least give the police a
law which they could enforce whenever the need arose to arrest people who were causing a
problem. Since 1997 the farm fields on the east side of West Searsville Road have been heavily
developed. The area is just too developed for skywatching, which means that other areas need to be
scouted and found. Thanks to Bruce Cornet, Ph.D., Geologist, Paleobotanist, Palynologist

Bill Bean was leaving home at 8:45 PM, and noticed a slow moving bright, white light, in the northern
sky. Bill reached for his camera, and took three shots. He then drove to Liberty Gardens Road. Bill
says, "As I was stopped at the light, I saw the object once again, and it was moving very slow to the
south and was much lower this time, so I watched it cross the sky, turn right, and circle back toward
me." The craft was moving very slow until it passed in front of me, then it made a sudden burst of
speed before making the circle back. It looked very light in the air, like it was playing around in the
sky. I turned right and stopped the car to watch in absolute amazement as the craft passed by again it
was even lower. It flew over the office buildings and the lights from the parking lots, and buildings
allowed me to see this thing clearly. It was a black flying triangle craft, with three big, white lights
[one on each corner], and a red/orange flashing light in the center. The most amazing part of the
sighting came when the triangle craft tilted on its side to reveal the underside. I was shooting photo
after photo [I shot 15 in all]. The object leveled out and took off with a tremendous burst of speed.
Thanks to Bill Bean

witness noticed white lights visible from Interstate 26 westbound at Route 76 exit. Two or three side
by side lights did not appear to be moving. As we got off the Interstate, heading southwest on 76, we
saw that the lights were ahead of us, over the Dutch Fork Elementary School. As we passed to the
southeast of the lights, I was looking almost straight up at them and saw they were three white lights
in an equilateral triangular formation, with a red flashing light in the middle. I had not seen the red light
until I was looking up at the object from underneath. The lights began moving slowly southeast
towards Columbia. The red center light was blinking once every second or two, but not constantly. It
would appear to stop for a few seconds and then start. The object flew below the horizon towards
the southeast at a couple thousand feet up, but the pattern of lights seemed too big for a helicopter.
At arm's length the pattern was the diameter of a penny. There had been heavy helicopter activity in
the area since nightfall. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director NUFORC

Reporting Center anonymous report states that around 7:00 p.m. on February 2, 2002, a "chevron-
shaped" object was sighted "patrolling" between power plants on both the Ohio and Kentucky sides
of the Ohio River. Investigator Ken Young, determined these are Killen and Stuart power stations,
both operated by the Dayton Power & Light Company. On the Kentucky side of the river, the
station was identified as the East Bend Kentucky Power Plant. I then contacted the Mason County
Sheriff's office and the Maysville City Police Department but nothing was reported' there. I then
called the East Bend, Kentucky power station at 606-883-3165 and talked with the chief security
guard at the plant. He confirmed from their log books that an unusual incident DID indeed take place.
The security chief said that the guard, also an officer with the Maysville police department, was on
duty at the security office and logged the sighting of an unidentified aircraft.  The guard wrote the
following notes in his Activity Report: "APPROXIMATELY 1900 HOURS, 2/2/02, AN
SUPERVISOR."  The security supervisor was leery of planes flying near the power station during
this time of terrorist concern across America. I placed a call to the Maysville Police Department, to
speak with the officer that logged the unusual sighting. I can't tell you what it was," the officer said,
describing the object as moving slowly toward the plant while he was on duty around 7:00 p.m. The
officer said that he was seated at the main gate with the river to his left and the power plant behind
him as the silent object approached. The "unknown aircraft," he said, was composed of three
multicolored lights in a triangular formation. These lights were red, green and white. He said that due
to darkness, he could not discern structure behind the lighting. He did stress that the object seemed
closer than usual for an airplane, and moving at a slow steady pace. He also added that while not
being a good judge of heights, the object was close enough to be of some concern.  The Dayton
Power & Light Company's Killen Station on Us Route 52 in Manchester, Ohio informed that there
was no guard on duty during the night. The Stuart Station, also on US Route 52 in Manchester, said
that she was aware of numerous people at the plant who spotted "something in the sky" a few weeks
back. She did not see the object, but heard about it and the sighting had many at the plant people
"talking." The East Bend Power station and the Stuart station are coal fired. This is a very significant
event due to the recent terrorist events and alerts that have alarmed the nation. That witnesses are
collectively describing an aircraft that they cannot identify makes this report all the more interesting.

on February 27, 2002, the witness says, "My daughter and I had just dropped off my son at a Boy
Scout meeting and turned onto Main Street in Menomonee Falls heading east towards home at 6:55
PM. We both saw a brightly lit object coming down at a rapid speed approximately at a 250 degree
angle. It only lasted a few seconds and seemed to disappear over Lake Michigan. We looked at
each other in disbelief. It looked like a flaming jet crashing, but it was moving too fast. Makes you
wonder? Note: We will be following up with this eyewitness to obtain more information. John

NIGHT SKY  ASHGROVE -- The witness reports that on February 27, 2002, at about 10:12 PM,
my daughter called me into her room and said, look at that! I looked out the window and saw an
object the size of a softball at arm's length in the northern sky at ten degrees above the horizon. It
shot straight up to about 30 degrees and seemed to float back down. It appeared to be flat with a
raised top, had a red strobe like light on top the size of an eraser on a pencil, and white light on each
end or edge. The craft made no sound and accomplished many very fast maneuvers and went straight
up and disappeared, not out of sight, it just flashed out. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

February 13, 2002, the witness saw an object that he thought was most likely a weather balloon. I
know it is not a celestial object, like anything I have ever seen. At 8:00 PM my brother-in-law and I
were atop east mountain looking at the moon with his 10 inch reflector scope. We were waiting for it
to get darker for better viewing of deep space objects to add to our catalog of observed bodies.
While looking at the Orion nebula I noticed a bright reddish star due south just above the horizon, at
about 8-10 degrees. The object appeared to be stationary and seemed to be white alternating red,
like it was pulsing or rotating. After a few minutes Jim turned the scope on the object and to our
amazement it was showing all the colors of the spectrum, with even a greater degree of rotation. It
appeared to be moving at almost the same speed as with the earth's rotation. After thirty minutes, I
went home and called the Little Rock air base to see if it was indeed a weather balloon. They gave
me the UFO hotline # so that I could report the sighting. I called and left a message, then went back
to the mountain. The object was still there but slightly more to the west. We started looking at other
deep space objects and noticed that by 10:30 PM the object was gone. We knew it was no celestial
object that we had ever seen. Thanks to Peter Davenport

NUFORC  OKLAHOMA SIGHTING  LAWTON -- Bill Hickman writes he received a report
from the witness who on March 3, 2002, stated, "I took a photo on the west edge of Lawton just
minutes ago. I was returning from some late night shopping at the local Wal-Mart and noticed these
objects in the distance moving around the sky rather erratically. When I got closer to home I realized
these objects were moving in my direction so when I got home I ran inside and grabbed my digital
camera. I ran back outside, and snapped only one picture before they sped out of sight. MUFON's
Dr. Bruce MacCabee is looking at the photo now and we should have a preliminary report soon.
Thanks to Bill Hickman, MUFON Investigator and author of the Hickman Report.

TEXAS TROUBLE Bill Clark writes, "If you doubt the government has a dark secret having
something to do with UFO's read on. I am one of the most respectable engineers you'll find
anywhere - I'm a licensed Professional Engineer in several disciplines; I've published two textbooks
with McGraw Hill; I attended the US Naval Academy; and was awarded the Army's highest
peacetime award for my activities at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico fifteen years ago. I
stake my reputation on the following: Three months ago I was a top Ph.D., student in Aerospace
Engineering at the top orbital mechanics group in the world. I had passed my written qualifying exams
and all the formal courses I needed for a Ph.D. with a 3.8 GPA. I had also completed my
dissertation, an optimization of the Earth to Mars trajectory. Three months ago I submitted a short
paper on some research I had done into a possible scientific basis for how UFO's work. The last
ninety days have pure, unadulterated hell. Within a month of my writing this paper (published last fall
by an Australian Ufology magazine), I was expelled from the University. I have appealed the
dismissal, but the University is doing everything in their power to stop me.  I've submitted two
dockets of favorable evaluations of my research from experts in celestial mechanics, orbital
mechanics, and optimization all over the world. They would not accept them. I appealed this blatant
act of obstruction to the Dean of the Engineering College, the Dean of the Graduate College, the
President of the University, members of the Board of Regents, my Texas State Senator and the
Texas Board of Professional Engineers. The rejection was unanimous and overwhelming. Likewise
with my appeals to ABET (the licensing agency for college engineering programs), the US
Department of Education (their Dallas Office of Civil Rights), my two US Senators and my US
Congressman, Ron Paul. They were even uglier than the Texas folks. Like I said, I have a worldwide
reputation in certain engineering circles -- most notable energy conservation and electrical design. It
says a lot that the authorities would break so many rules, so obviously, and with such malice and such
disregard for my reputation, and my legal status as a Professional Engineer. It tells me that my
research hit a very raw and sensitive nerve. You can read some of my research on my web site at The optimization computer program is there, for free; and some rough
drafts of a few technical papers. I would appreciate it if you would sign my guest book if you go
there. The Center for Space Research is at UT Austin (the equivalent of JPL); they have recently
begun research into formation flying using GPS technology; keep an eye out to see if UFOs start
flying in tighter formations in the near future -- if they do, head for the hills! Thanks to Bill Clark

ARIZONA RED MOON APACHE JUNCTION -- On February 16, 2002, I was in my two story
bedroom, attempting to close the blinds at 9:30 PM. I glanced outside to the west to the Mesa-
Phoenix City lights. I looked and looked and saw what I thought was part of the moon with a red
light underneath. (like when the sun goes down in the west and there is a red sky and the sun shines
on a mountain.) I took a double take...then I ran downstairs and went to the front of my home and
looked to see if I saw the same thing I did in the window. It was there! I went back to get my
daughter and when we came back, it was gone! I went immediately to the TV for any reports, but
there was nothing on TV or in the paper. I can't believe that no one saw this. It was huge and just
hung there. I have never seen anything like this before. Thanks to Peter Davenport

MILTON -- CORRECTION: Last week we reported an inverted cylinder was seen near Milton by
a witness and his girlfriend on February 11, 2002, at 11:50 PM. The actual sighting took place in
Milton, Washington not Milton, West Virginia. The witness took five photos. The sky was black,
except for the orange glow of this object bouncing and moving erratically around the sky. It would
move slow and steady in one direction, then suddenly move quickly about the night sky. As it moved
south we jumped into the truck to follow and parked on 10th Avenue in Milton and watched it
moving to the south and east. The orange glow coming from below the object was bright, but would
at times glow brighter then fade some. It seemed to get eight to ten miles away, then it started moving
back toward and to the west of where we were. At it's closest point to us the orange glow faltered
then grew stronger. As it grew stronger it instantaneously released a shower of sparks. This
happened twice very quickly. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

new sighting reports on March 9, 2002. There has been sixteen reports coming in for northern BC in
a little over a month. For 2001, I received six reports for the whole year. I will be heading out shortly
to talk to some of the folks, and to look around the areas where this has taken place.

VANDERHOOF -- The two witnesses reported that the bright lights looked as if they were on a
landing (meaning an area which has been logged and now clear of timber) on February 1, 2002 .
They reported that these lights flashed on and off repeatedly and moving around too fast for a night
logging operation. On February 28, 2002, near daybreak they saw the same lights again. The lights
were approximately 13 miles east out of Vanderhoof, BC heading towards Prince George on
Langston Road. Both times these lights were observed, the witnesses thought they were seeing
someone logging using one of the big machines as the lights were so bright. The witness told me her
husband had made a call to the Forestry Services to inquire. The Forestry said there was no one
logging at all in that area (on either occasion).

KITWANGA -- The witness tells me he saw the bright light on Highway #37 about sixty kilometers
north about 4:45 AM in late February 2002. There is a large swampy area off to the left and through
the trees he saw the reflection of the moon on the water. The fellow went on to say that there was a
very, very bright light in the swamp. His impression of what he saw was a gas station canopy lit up as
it was so bright. He mentioned he saw the light 3 times while slowly driving down the highway in the
space through the trees. The light would disappear and reappear and he had a good view of it very
distinctly the second time. He described the light as an orange/yellow in color. The light was huge and
as far as he knew there was nothing what so ever in the area. He said the bright light was stationary
and did not move an inch. I asked how far the light was positioned in the sky and he said either it was
sitting on the ground or just above it.

TERRACE -- The witness reported to me that he is a body builder and was doing his cardio
workout the morning of March 4, 2002, when he saw a star shoot across the sky and came to a
complete stop at 5:30 - 5:45 AM. It did a loop in the sky and then went straight up and disappeared.
I informed him that colored stars do not do loop in the sky! It was like a star, but a very bright star
with a blue, green red color to it that lasted only ten seconds. Weather conditions were clear and it
flew from east to west.

TERRACE -- On the evening of March 8, 2002, the witness reports seeing a most unusual circle of
really bright lights for five minutes. "We live ten minutes from the airport and these lights were not
from a plane, these were most set of lights I have every seen." This took place in the evening between
9:00 and 10:30 PM. He said, "This is the first time I have seen what I believe to be a UFO!"

KITIMAT -- On March 5th, around 8:45 PM amateur astronomers were looking at the star chart in
the latest issue of the Star News magazine. The couple and their nine year old son saw a bright light
with a red and orange layer going straight down. The object had a tail like a ball of fire and
disappeared behind a tree situated roughly towards Mt. Elizabeth a 5,500 foot mountain fifteen miles
northeast. Thanks to Brian Vike 1-250-845-2189 http:

reveals that Latin American newspapers have reported a number of UFO sightings that are
presumably occurring in neighboring regions of Argentina and Chile. A UFO photograph captured in
the Cachi region of Argentina last year is said to correspond with recent eyewitness testimony. The
Argentine newspaper that published the photo said the image was clear and startling. A student who
filmed a UFO with a family camcorder said she came forward only after reading about a delegation
of specialists who were assembled to study the strange sightings, which are reportedly occurring in
the Salta region of Argentina on a daily basis. Translations were provided by the Institute of Hispanic
Ufology (IHU)

CALAMA -- A student managed to capture a UFO on film on February 15, 2002. (El Tribuno) -
"All I want is for these images to be analyzed and digitized by experts who have the necessary
technology with which to decipher this mysterious UFO which after the three minutes of filming and
the total of six, seven or ten minutes it was there, vanished at an unreal speed toward the north."

was tracked across England on March 3, 2002. UFO investigator David Kingston received reports
of a bizarre triangular craft with red and blue lights, zooming across the skies from Cornwall to Poole.
The mystery machine was first spotted in St. Austell. There were also reports of it not far from Lyme
Regis later the same day, then over Portland and Poole. Mr. Kingston, who first witnessed
unexplained flying objects while serving with an RAF intelligence unit during nuclear tests in the
Pacific, is at a loss to explain the latest sightings. He says: "I received a number of consistent reports
of a craft flying over the West country on February 15 and there is nothing like it in the world aircraft
guide. It was said to be triangular, 100 feet long with red lights all the way up on the right hand side
and blue lights on the left hand side. "Underneath was what appeared to be a very large light, in the
middle, glowing pale electric blue through to purple with a corona surrounding it. "Four or five people
witnessed it and described it as gliding silently at about 2,500 feet. It was described as hovering
quietly at Portland. The last sighting was near Poole, about two hours after the first." Kingston first
heard aircrew talk of seeing UFOs, during the nuclear tests on Christmas Island in 1957, he has
catalogued hundreds of reports and witnessed many strange sights himself. Thanks to Gary

What differentiates her book. Haunted Burlington Wisconsin , is that
Sutherland includes her explanations of the unknown realms and
phenomena with tips for heightening the reader's own psychic
awareness. Readers who complete this dizzying journey may find
they can no longer look at Burlington in exactly the same way.
