Are orbs proof that spirits DO exist?
By Hazel Courteney of the Daily Mail reports, "At first, it seemed no more than a curious coincidence. Professor Klaus Heinemann, a researcher for NASA, the U.S. space agency, was studying a collection of photographs his wife had taken at a gathering of spiritual healers when he noticed that many of them featured the same pale but clearly defined circle of light, like a miniature moon, hovering above some of the subjects. Like most rational people, he assumed that the pictures were faulty. 'I presumed the circles were due to dust particles, flash anomalies, water particles and so on,' says Prof Heinemann.
After-thought: An orb appeared on this photo taken by Klaus Heinemann
'But I was sufficiently intrigued that I returned to the room in which the pictures were taken, in the hope of finding an explanation - like a mirror in the background. None was forthcoming.' Nor could he find any faults with his wife's camera. And as a scientist with considerable experience in sophisticated microscope techniques - examining matter down to atomic levels of optical resolution - his methods were nothing if not rigorous.
Still puzzled, Heinemann set out to discover what else might have caused the mysterious circles. He and his wife began taking hundreds of digital photographs at random events to see whether they could recreate the mysterious effect. The answer was that they could make these shimmering 'orbs' appear again, but only - absurd as it may sound - if they 'asked' the apparitions to make themselves visible to the camera. And they found this method worked particularly well when the couple photographed spiritual gatherings.
What on earth was going on? Again, a maverick technical glitch seemed the obvious answer. Such anomalies happen frequently in digital photography. If you accidentally jog a camera while a picture is being taken, especially in dim light, you can easily get a double image. But again, Prof Heinemann ruled out a technical fault. 'We were quickly able to eliminate the common problems associated with photography - such as dust particles, water droplets, reflections and a host of other likely causes.'
Heinemann set up dozens of experiments using two cameras on static tripods under controlled conditions. His early experiments found that orbs can move very fast, up to 500mph or more. Heinemann also found that during his numerous dual camera experiments, when he used twin cameras to capture an object from two different angles, a single orb shape would often appear - but only in one of the two images taken simultaneously. It was as if the orbs somehow chose which camera to appear on, or whether to appear at all. Eventually, Heinemann was left with only one conclusion: that he was witnessing some form of paranormal intelligence. 'There is no doubt in my mind that the orbs may well be one of the most significant "outside of this reality" phenomena mankind has ever witnessed,' says Professor Heinemann.
'Until now, there has been a huge amount of anecdotal evidence that the spirit world exists. I believe it's no longer anecdotal. Thanks to digital technology, we can see it for the first time. We are dealing with a non-physical - albeit real - phenomenon.'
"Earlier this year, the world's first conference on orbs took place in Sedona, Arizona, where several scientists controversially stated that they believed orbs were indeed a genuine paranormal phenomenon.
Their conclusions, if correct, could have huge implications on the way we view the universe and our part in it. The experts say that just because something has not yet been scientifically proven, it doesn't mean that it is not real. Professor William Tiller, a theoretical physicist who spent 35 years researching consciousness and matter at Stanford University in California, reminded the conference that what we see with our physical eyes comprises less than 10 per cent of the known universe.
This is because human vision operates only within a limited range of the electromagnetic spectrum. For instance, we cannot see radio waves, which carry huge amounts of information, yet we know they exist.

UFOs and Death
Kulcan writes, " I felt this my typical nervousness which hasn't "attacked" me for several months, got out and started filming on May 23, 2007, and when I checked my computer and voila!! , shadows again one minute. Then after a couple of weeks a neighbor told me that our old superintended Walter whom lived a lonely life had passed away. He died during Mother's Day weekend....On that weekend I went out ignoring my "feeling" of something not being right.......that's why I think all of this has a relationship.
He was ever lonely but nice and willing to help man despite his deteriorating health, and always cheered you and telling about what a beautiful day it was. The young neighbor downstairs fortunately heard the tumbling of the body upstairs and called about it the next day......the day I got out.
Again why some UFOs seem to show up when people die. There are a couple of incidents around the world talking about this......without mentioning Whitley Strieber's own account of seeing a friend during an abduction episode, the problem ? he knew later on that his friend was already dead at the time. Thanks to Kulcan.
Editorís Note: At the moment of my brother-in-laws death I saw a brilliant flash of light go up from his room into the sky. Many claim to see the soul or life force leaving the body. Several researchers have remarked that when people die UFOs are seen nearby. Dr. Barry Downing, a Presbyterian Minister who I spoke with several years ago explained his God Hypothesis theory that UFOs come from another dimension and the entities piloting these craft have been involved with humanity since our creation. He speculates these beings are from a spiritual world where humans go at death.
Billy Graham Spiritual Guide to Presidents
Billy Graham is on the cover of the August 20, 2007 Time Magazine. He has had a ministry for 50 years to every US. President since Truman and is close to Hillary Clinton.. In his best selling book "Angels Godís Secret Agents" he states,
"Some reputable scientists deny and others assert that UFOs do appear to people from time to time. Some scientists have reached the place where they think they can prove that these are possibly visitors from outer space. Some Christian writers have speculated that UFOs could very well be a part of Godís angelic host who preside over the physical affairs of universal creation. While we cannot assert such a view with certainty, many people are now seeking some type of supernatural explanation for these phenomena. Nothing can hide the fact, however, that these unexplained events are occurring with greater frequency. (Page 21)
We must be aware that angels keep in close and vital contact with all that is happening on the earth. "The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels." (Psalm 68) "....his chariots of conveyance, which he sends for his friends, as he did for Elijah ...his chariots of state, in the midst of which he shows his glory and power."
Graham states, "The scripture says there is a time to be born and a time to die. And when my time to die comes an angel will be there to comfort me. He will give me peace and joy even at that most critical hour, and usher me into the presence of God, and I will dwell with the Lord forever." (Angels Page 188.)
Mars Launch Rocket Plumes
Jeff Challender Director of Project Prove writes, "Regarding the report and photo from the EMT in Brandon/Tampa Florida in your files last week, I don't know what the objects he reported in conjunction with the lines in the sky were, but the weird looking trails in the sky are no doubt residue from the launch of the Phoenix probe to Mars. These odd looking rocket exhaust plumes are sometimes seen after a launch when atmospheric conditions are right.
NASA photo taken about an hour after the liftoff of STS-117 on 8 June 2007.
See how similar they are? Just letting you know that such patterns in the sky after a rocket launch are not uncommon. http://www.projectprove.com/Arts/15_9ob/15_9ob.php Thanks to Jeff Challender
Stroke Identification: Remember S.T.R.
During a UFO skywatch, a friend stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) and just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Nancy went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Nancy's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital and passed away. She had suffered a stroke. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke immediately, perhaps Nancy would be with us today..
RECOGNIZING A STROKE Remember the first three letters STR .
S* Ask the individual to SMILE.
T * Ask the person to TALK to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE(Coherently) (I.e. It is sunny out today)
R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out their tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke. If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call 911 Emergency immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

PHOENIX -- Heading east on Thunderbird Road I couldn't resist stopping and taking a few photos of an approaching severe thunderstorm on July 31, 2007 around 7 PM. Off to the east I noticed a disk shaped object moving very erratic from north to south just ahead of the gust front generated by the thunderstorm. At first I thought it was a balloon but that couldn't be because this storm was moving west directly at me!
And the disk shaped object was moving north to south, almost as if it were sightseeing. Lightning was very intense just east of my location so that ruled out any helicopters or private planes in the same area. That disk shaped object was much too low to be a commercial airliner, Sky Harbor international airport in Phoenix was almost 25 miles away. It traveled slightly more to the south and lifted almost vertical into the scud clouds and never did reappear. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
California Huge Triangle With Red Lights
PLEASANTON -- I am a skeptic when it comes to "UFO sightings" but I must tell you that I SAW something Thursday night August 9, 2007. I was driving south on 680 freeway, around 9 PM, rolling through Pleasanton I notice to the east four bright white lights. The brightest was at the very top, then several hundred feet below was a cluster of three more hovering bright lights that formed some sort of triangle a couple miles away.
I was moving closer to them as I drove down the highway. I'm POSTIVE other drivers in other cars saw these lights as well, but I obviously couldn't tell if anyone was surprised to see them as I was. These 4 lights were aligned together on the same plane. I envisioned it to be a huge, giant crane like ones used to help build skyscrapers, but I knew it was too high in the sky and too big and too bright to be a crane.
The VERY next day on my way home, now only 8 PM, so still some sunlight. There was no place for lights that high. When I Googled "Strange bright lights" I read a report of almost exact sighting on Dec. 3, 2004, in the same location. http://www.ufoinfo.com/filer/2004/ff0453.shtml
CHATWORTH -- Francine writes, "I read on your last report of a gentleman, that reported seeing objects that moved very fast like hummingbirds. I caught these by accident. I was looking through my view finder when all of a sudden I see these objects flying very fast I tried keeping them in the viewfinder, but they looked like bugs or birds. I then viewed them on my LCD window, and was able to pause the video. What I saw where two sphere's that would come apart then reattach flying in this very erratic way. This is a photo I took from the video. Thanks to Francine
Colorado Huge White Disc
I went outside to the truck to get something to drink. Then I saw what appeared to be a half-deflated Mylar balloon or perhaps a white garbage bag floating in the air. Suddenly it expanded into a huge white disc and began doing slow graceful movements such as circles and zigzags. Then another identical disc appeared and they did maneuvers together.
I called out to the other workers to come see the flying saucers, and immediately one of the discs took off and disappeared, while the other one turned on its side and appeared to change into a small plane and slowly move away. The other workers came out and saw the 'airplane' and thought I was an idiot. But I saw what I saw. There was another supervisor who was with me the entire time who saw everything and reported it to others in the same way. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Florida Disc Watches Launch of Space Shuttle
KISSIMMEE -- Description (In Witness's Own Words): At 6:30 PM, I went outside to watch the space shuttle launch on August 8, 2007. I observed an object very large also very high, directly overhead. The object was stationary and disk shaped. I observed it through binoculars and it certainly was disk shaped. This is the 2nd sighting during a launch. Both times the object is in the same stationary position. After the launch the object vanishes instantly.
Investigator's Notes: The object must have been quite large if the witness saw it about 60 miles away from Cape Canaveral. (He did view through binoculars, but the object would still have to have been fairly large.) One would think that many witnesses would see the same thing. No other reports have been received.

Illinois Circular flying object
CHICAGO -- I was sitting on my balcony with my wife on July 29, 2007, when she directed my attention to the sky above my head. There I saw an illuminated circle moving with more speed than a commercial aircraft, but silently. It was headed west. I joked with my wife that it was going to O'Hare airport.
My wife and I have the same story except that I say it was moving in a straight line; my wife says it was zigzagging slightly on its path westward. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
Michigan Lights Followed by Military fly by
FOSTORIA -- On the night of July 31, 2007, I was on my back deck watching the sky for shooting stars. It was a clear night at about 10:20 PM, I saw some strange golden orange lights that steadily got brighter, and then it just went out. Immediately after, the next light came on just to the left of where the first one was. When the second light went out the third came on just to the left of it until it reached its brightest point and it went out. The timing of the three lights was in perfect sequence, one would appear dim then brighten and go out, then the next light came on brightened and went out, and then the third did the same.
The whole event took maybe 5- 10 seconds. The lights made no noise. I could not tell if the lights were separate craft flying in a tight formation. But at 10:50 PM, 30 minutes after sighting) off to the north west I could see two military fighter jets in formation heading right toward my home. When the fighters were getting very close to the area of the sighting they turned off their blinking lights and kicked in afterburners. The fighters were flying about 10,000 feet and you could see the bright white afterburner flames that were fast and loud enough to rattle the deck I was standing on. I am not sure what the golden orange lights in the sky were, but I know that the military flying by was a direct result of the sighting.
I am a 41 year old male. I manage an office, and have a wife and two children with excellent knowledge of various aircraft. This was not normal air traffic. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
STEWARTVILLE -- Driving down County Road 1, I saw a bright light coming in my direction from the horizon at 10:45 PM, on August 2, 2007. As the light neared, I noticed it didn't look 'normal' so I pulled to the side of the road. The thing looked like it was heading right at my vehicle, but made a sharp right turn at the last second - almost directly over me. I rolled my window down and heard a roaring sound. As the craft tipped on it's side to turn, I snapped one picture with my phone. The fast moving triangular shape of the object was only apparent at this angle. Then it leveled-out and drifted into obscurity to my left.
The craft's elevation, its speed, its light configuration tell me that this was no ordinary airplane. I wouldn't rush to say that it was of alien origin, but definitely something I can't explain and never have seen before. Thanks to MUFON CMS
New Jersey UFOs Captured on Film
WOODBRIDGE -- Brandon McCain writes, "I took pictures of some more Unidentified's on my way to Atlantic City to gamble the weekend of August 8, 2007. The Night photos are from Woodbridge facing south of Lindendale Drive around 10:30 PM. The night photos were shot while still, with no flash and properties enabled; Night Landscape enabled on Nikon Coolpix Camera. Thatís why I remain baffled that some green flying thing with red eyes is completely visible I want to believe itís a bug but how did that happen? I was not near any light posts either.
It is no surprise I captured UFO's around Atlantic City either; for those who go over that huge bridge up I-295 can see that big nuke plant on the right of the river. UFO abductees worldwide say they seem to have some kind concern for motive toward human nuclear policy. Keep your camera upward, Thanks to Brandon McCain
FREEHOLD -- I was on Route 9 traveling south about five miles north of Freehold on August 12, 2007, at 9:28 PM, and the object was east at 20 degrees elevation. It seemed to be very large and the lights were in the configuration of tower warning lights, but unless someone was displaying a huge white illuminated sheet on top of that tower, what I saw makes no sense to me.
I saw an object to the east that was huge. It looked like a trapezoidal shaped white fluorescent like light with a red light on the bottom flashing once per second and another red light at the top flashing once in a while. It was about 15 degrees above the horizon and it seemed to be moving very slowly. Just curious if anyone else saw this thing? Thanks to John

Oregon Man Sees Round Object Pass by Moon
SALEM --Description (In Witness's Own Words): As I was driving on August 10, 2007, about 6 AM, the crescent moon was visible. I saw a round object similar to what a planet looks like except I realized it was moving in a northwest direction. It passed between the moon and earth. It had the dark backing of the moon, which allowed a transit of about a minute. It then kept moving until I lost it with the sun rise. I could see no lights; it just appeared to be a round object about the size of what Jupiter looks like at night.
Investigator's Notes: The witness's observations are all consistent with weather and astronomical data. Given the witness description I don't know what he saw. No satellites were visible at the sighting time. The time of the sighting was close to sunrise and satellites are not generally visible at this time. I suppose that the object could have been a regular aircraft, but the witness described the shape as round which wouldn't fit an airplane or helicopter. Thanks to Bill Puckett UFOS Northwest http://ufosnw.com/
Pennsylvania Large Black Disc Spotted
MILLMONT -- My 17 year old daughter and 7 year old son came running in the house and told me to come outside. We saw a huge black disk to our west at 4:45 PM on July 29, 2007. I asked my daughter where it had come from. She said it just appeared. As I watched two black helicopters appeared just to the south of object. There seemed to be some kind of electrical charge in the air, on a clear blue sky day. I watched as the helicopters caught up to the disc and all three just vanished into thin air. The experience still has my daughter and son on edge always looking skyward. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
Washington Large Disc Shaped Craft
SEATTLE -- The Blue Angels were putting on a show on August 5, 2007, and they always seem to pass over my house, so I was trying to get some photos. I was playing around with my digital camera and added an IR lens filter. There were no clouds and it was sunny and clear. As I was taking a series of photos, I could see nothing. But as I was viewing the photos something showed up. Condensation maybe? There were no clouds and humidity was very low. I am reluctant to call it a UFO, and I tried to duplicate the photo five minutes later without success. Some of my friends say it could be the Goodyear blimp, but I should have seen it while I was taking the photo. Others say I doctored it in Photoshop. I did not in any way doctor the photo. Except to lighten a little. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Argentina: Mutilated Animals Cause Concern
ENTRE RIOS PROVINCE --Cattlemen from the department of ParanŠ, reported finding strangely mutilated beef cattle in the fields. The animals have had their genitals, tongues and udders removed. The circumstance repeats itself relatively frequently in rural locations of this province and occurred this time in fields near Tabossi and Viale, to the northeast of the provincial capital. Abel Gunter, one of the affected cattlemen, described the situation as "strange" and claimed that rural dwellers are displaying "concern" and intrigue over the mysterious animal deaths.
"We say that extraterrestrials are coming to mutilate our cows," said the cattleman in an interview with a local station. He insisted that there is "something odd" in the animal deaths, because dogs and wild animals in the area generally feed off of the dead cow remains, but refuse to approach the mutilated specimens. "One animal had a perfect cut on its jaw, and another had a burn on its hind leg that extends up to the knee. The Journal of Hispanic Ufology, (Translation (c) 2007. S. Corrales, IHU. Special thanks to Guillermo Gimenez, Planeta UFO).

Canada Sightings at High Level
SAND BANKS OFF LAKE ONTARIO Ė Paul Shishis writes. "I have just returned from camp. There is so much to share, accompanied with photographic evidence. The camp is in Prince Edward County and there have been numerous sightings there."
These were taken on July 31,2007, near dusk, at the Sand Banks, facing west towards Lake Ontario. I do understand about conventional aircraftís trail, which could be mistaken as a UFO. If you view photo # 1238, bottom left above the water. There appears to be a" unknown something" above the water-Iím sure it is not human or other known. Thanks to Paul Shishis
Port Coquitlam, British Columbia -- All summer long from June through August I setup outside once it's dark with my binoculars and watch the stars and every night I will see amber lights, that move at incredible speeds across the sky. I also see satellites (dimmer, slower and more of a white light). Sometimes they move is pairs, one following the other. They move in different directions from different areas of the sky. I've even see two moving in different directions cross paths. One time I was watching one move across the sky and thought to myself that it would be more interesting if the movement was more erratic. I hadn't finished that thought when the one I had my eye on started flitting all over the place. While still moving in the same general direction. Most nights I will see 5 or 6 moving in different directions. I haven't stayed out later than midnight but I'd see a lot more. .

Chile UFO Caught on Camera
SANTIAGO -- On holidays, I continue my search for UFOs. I installed my Canon Powershot S80 Camera on a tripod to film for 3-4 minutes at the landscape at a film speed of 15 FPS. On second 40, the object flies along the path transversally to the shot (app. 1 sec.)
I only realized about the object after processing the film on my TV set at home. This is the clearest sighting made of many after following the same process of filming to the landscape. I wait for comments and future sharing of ideas. Thanks to Jorge
Cuba Triangle Formation Seen off Southern Coast
Some friends and I observed three objects that appeared roughly 50 miles off the southern tip of Cuba on July 31, 2007. The two brightest ones were together, while another that seemed dimmer appeared off to the right. After roughly two minutes, the dimmer object faded and seemed to reappear, forming a perfect triangle with the brighter two. About three minutes later, the three objects in the triangle formation faded and then completely disappeared. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
Germany Glowing Object
NEUMARKT -- In Southern Germany, at 4 AM, on 1 August 2007, I was sitting on my balcony looking up at the sky. I live in a small village so there is no city light reflection at night, and when the sky is clear, it is really clear. Occasionally I can see space junk flying across the sky in a wide range of colors. (Green, Orange, blue green mixed) but today it was much different when an object seemed to start to glow and turn into a perfect white light. (It was not moving)
I could see the objects shape perfectly as the light seemed to get brighter. Once the object turned into the perfect light the object then began to move and disappeared into a cloud bank to my left. It was amazing, the sky to the right of my balcony was clear, so saying it was space junk popping into view and out of view can be dismissed. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
Haiti UFO Video
A spectacular video on Utube and other web sites shows several UFOs flying at low level above palm trees. Strangely the palm trees look virtually identical. The video is suspect at best and is unlikely real and probably made with a sophisticated video enhancement system.
Here are a couple photos taken from the video. What do you think? http://www.haitiufosite.com
Italy Video from Italian Air Force
This is a video filmstrip I made of the UFO over a river reported to be released by the Italian Air force. The images are arranged in order top to bottom in two rows. You can see the different angles of the craft as it rotates and flies back and forth. This UFO seems to also change shape. Some of the panels that are sticking up seem to raise and lower as the craft turns around. Whether this is a model or full scale spacecraft the video is very impressive.
I have included two versions of the video because one is darker than the other and they show different details. It always helps to view the video in full screen mode when looking at UFOs. You can change to full screen by clicking the box in the lower right corner of the video for anyone who may not know already.
This UFO also leaves at what looks like an incredible speed. It looks like a spacecraft. Thanks to Norman Bryden
Norway Oval UFOs
OLSO -- Early this morning my friend and I were walking across the park, with our hounds on July 30, 2007 at 3 PM.
If it wasn't for the bright flash of lights we would never have noticed it. We were wondering what the light was when all of a sudden they all came pouring over the hill. It was terrifying. The crafts were shaped like an orange, only gray. The ships flew around for roughly one minute, then began to move behind the hill again. When we went up the hill, one of the crafts was landed. We were horrified, and ran back to the park. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
UK/England A Silver Spherical Object
PEWSEY -- For some time now, various crop circles have appeared that point to the dates of August 18-19, and one that formed at Pewsey White Horse near Swindon in the UK not only points to this date, it contains what may be a rough diagram of the interior of a nuclear bomb enclosed in a crescent moon. It must be noted, however, that the nine pointed star also represents the Baha'i religion, which was founded in Iran in 1844.
If an unanticipated event should take place on August 18-19, it would be strong support for the validity of the crop circle phenomenon. Hopefully, it will not be something as terrible as a nuclear detonation. It is also worth noting that the circle, which appeared on August 4, expresses the concept of "three groups of three," which is the subject of Whitley Strieber's last crop circle meditation, posted on the same day, and created the day before. Thanks to www.unknowncountry.com
GUILDFORD, SURREY Ė Sonya Porter writes: I'm a member of the Surrey Investigative Group into Aerial Phenomena called SIGAP. One of the members recently gave me details of his sighting. On April, 18, 2007, around 9:30 PM, a Guildford resident watched two light phenomena in the night sky through his window. These lights were not, he told Pegasus, reflections through the glass, nor could they have been planes of any type due to their unusual movements.
There were a number of 'sausage' type lights which simply hung motionless in the sky for the duration of the sighting. These were joined end to end into a what seemed almost a diagram but while the ones on the outside of the design were quite brightly lit, two at the centre were much more brilliant. These gave the impression of being some kind of a 'control' section.
Another similar collection of lights moved rapidly to the south just above the horizon. They were similar design to the ones I could still see, hanging motionless in the sky. The lights moved rapidly from north to south and out of my view; then either this collection or another one returned from the other direction, from south to north. If a plane had been photographing and recording the countryside, this is how it would have been done."
The display continued for an hour, while one set of lights remained hanging in the sky while the other design rapidly flew north to south and then after disappearing below the horizon for a short while, reappearing and passing from south to north and so on. Thanks to Sonya Porter
SCOTLAND, EDINBURGH NEWS reports Ė"THEY are a staple of science fiction and have convinced generations of the existence of extra-terrestrial life." But although for most people flying saucers exist only in films and TV shows, the Ministry of Defence today revealed it has investigated 22 cases of mysterious objects appearing in the skies above Edinburgh and the surrounding regions.
Aviation experts have been drafted in to investigate reports including "jelly-fish shapes", "big, round swirly things" and fireballs. One woman noticed a series of flashing lights flying over Corstorphine Hill at night in 1998. She said it was in a diamond-like formation and flew low over the hill before heading towards the city. Paranormal investigators said at the time they were puzzled by the lights and urged more witnesses to come forward, but the mystery was never solved.
FIRE IN THE SKY: Witnesses claimed David Carson's sighting was proof of alien activity. Other incidents, such as two "fuzzy white lights" that danced over Leith in 2001 and a "swirly" object appearing above East Linton last year, have also never been explained and have been seen by some as evidence of extra-terrestrial activity.
Some UFO sightings have also been put down to natural causes, such as a mysterious light seen streaking across the sky above Midlothian at the end of last year.
At first David Carson thought he saw a burning aeroplane dropping from the sky. But when he realised he wasn't witnessing an aviation disaster, he reached for his camera and spent ten minutes photographing what he saw, about a mile south of Penicuik.
Described as "going in all sorts of weird directions", the lights sparked frantic calls from witnesses to the MoD and experts at Edinburgh's Royal Observatory, who were told it was an alien craft. At first, astronomers thought it was a piece of space but they were later stumped when an amateur photo of the light failed to match their conclusions.
Later said the light had been caused by an unusual glare of the sun on a passing plane's condensation trail. A sighting of an orange ball of fire with a long tail in Broxburn in 2004 was also eventually highlighted as naturally-occurring, with astronomers stating it had been caused by a meteor burning up while entering the Earth's atmosphere.
UFO enthusiasts have maintained that many of the incidents reported to the MoD show there could be extra-terrestrials visiting the Capital's skies.
Paranormal investigator Ron Halliday, chairman of Scottish Earth Mysteries Research, said the data released by the MoD represented http://news.scotsman.com/index.cfm?id=1208352007
