Mars Close and Sightings Increase 


Mars is often close to Earth when UFO flaps occur. Despite their excellent record, the Mars Rovers are periodically shut down to avoid certain areas where interesting and extremely unusual images appear on the horizon such as this Spirit Rover shot above. After passing these places the Rover operates without problems.  There are also unidentified flying objects imaged by the Rovers.

 We were told in the past that there is no life on Mars because there is no water. Now water seems abundant as shown in this NASA photograph.  

J. P. Skipper found this photo of water spraying at top of photo. 

This image shows what appears to be a log. Perhaps a petrified log that has turned to stone. In any case it seems unlikely that a rock would take this shape. These and hundreds of other features indicate Mars has life or at least at one time had forests and trees.

Japanase Satellite shows Anomalies on the Moon

John E. Combest writes, "I went to the web site for the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) as listed in Filer's Files #4 and made a detailed study of all the moon photos shown.  About 1/5th of the photos have the RED and BLUE color layers misaligned, and about 6 photos are slightly out-of-focus so that no useful study could be made.  Nevertheless, I did find what appear to be artifacts (buildings and other structures) in several of the photos.  I enlarged the area of each original photo to show the items of interest, and placed arrows and notations to point out those objects in each of the four attachments.


There is evidence that the Japanese (just like NASA) are practicing airbrushing and black-out to prevent public recognition of some objects, and I have pointed out those instances.   

In view of the length of time their satellite has been orbiting the moon, I am quite surprised that so few photos have been made available.  Images courtesy of Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) web site address,

 High Speed Ahead for Falcon

 The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPAs)  Falcon Hypersonic Test Vehicle-1 (HTV-1) is now on the books for a less than one-hour flight in September 2007. Attaining Mach 19 (19 times the speed of sound), the glided air vehicle will briefly exit the Earth's atmosphere and reenter flying between 19 and 28 miles above the Earth's surface. The Falcon HTV program is geared to showcase the ability of a craft to attain hypersonic speeds - ranging from 6,000 to 15,000 miles per hour (Mach 9 to Mach 22), and reach altitudes between 100,000 to 150,000 feet. To do so will necessitate an airframe structure designed to survive intense heat and pressure.

  DARPA's Falcon Hypersonic Test Vehicle 2 program has progressed from wind tunnel testing and is gearing up for flight testing, says Stephen Welby, director of the agency's Tactical Technology Office. Speaking at the Precision Strike Association's winter meeting on January 23, 2008, he said the program, which is maturing hypersonic technologies, would conduct flight experiments with Hypersonic Test Vehicle 2.

 This design features an airframe with a modified air shell to assess guidance and control subsystems at speeds up to Mach 20. HTV-2 will be invaluable in enabling researchers to understand the ability of a high-speed vehicle to withstand the stresses placed on the airframe and its protective thermal shell when it flies for an extensive time in the atmosphere, Welby said.

The Falcon program objectives are to develop and demonstrate hypersonic technologies that will enable prompt global reach missions. This capability is envisioned to entail a reusable Hypersonic Cruise Vehicle (HCV) capable of delivering 12,000 pounds of payload at a distance of 9,000 nautical miles from CONUS in less than two hours. Falcon will develop a low cost, responsive Small Launch Vehicle (SLV) that can be launched for $5M or less. The SLV will be capable of launching satellites into low earth and sun-synchronous orbits and will provide the nation a new, small payload access to space capability. Falcon capabilities are planned for transition to the Air Force. Thanks to Marc V. Schanz Air Force Magazine

Editor's Note: The US Space Shuttle program is scheduled to end in 2010. The release of the information on these programs indicates the US is building a replacement aircraft.  More than likely the earlier models have been flying into space on a regular basis.

California - Flashing Triangle

JANESVILLE -- On January 20, 2008 at 7:56 PM, I looked outside my window to look at the blizzard outside, and there was a backwards V-Shaped object, with the lights flashing, but not like those on airplane.  It was flying so close to the ground, and I live on the hill, so I was surprised it passed over the hillside. It was a really huge object, nothing like you would see in the U.S. Air Force, or probably any air force in the world, it was too big. It  was snowing too badly to see how big it truly was. All I could see was the lights. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

FULLERTON -- I was driving northward on Highway 57 on January 27, 2008, and from 5:50 to 6:00 PM  California when I saw two lights weaving "radically" over the freeway, merging in and out of the sky. There was also a helicopter flying above the lights. At first, I thought the lights were two flares. But no flare can flash on and off and cross each other. One of the lights flew right above the freeway bypass in the middle of the lane I was driving on and it was about 50 feet away and about 25 feet above the freeway. Then the lights disappeared. At one point, the two lights disappeared and reappeared in separate areas. Traffic was stopping and there were a lot of witnesses.

Comments: The witness reported the sighting a few hours after it occurred. Apparently several cars were stopped to view the lights. Given the witness report I don't know what was observed. It is interesting to note that a helicopter was flying above the lights. Thanks to Bill Puckett UFOS Northwest

Florida - Disks


OAKLAND PARK -- I received a mini- dv camera for Christmas and I wanted to practice shooting video so I decided to go outside and shoot the airplanes going by. I pointed the camera up to capture a plane and that is when I saw this black object. It looked very unnatural, my girlfriend was outside with me and she watched it with me. I tried to do the best I could at filming but it was hard to follow. It made no sound. And it seemed to come from out of nowhere. It kept changing shape and it was black on the outside with a bright light in the middle. Thanks to MUFON CMS

BROOKSVILLE -- My three friends and I were at a forestry area playing man hunt on December 30, 2007, when a big disk like object flies  by in the air. It was crazy and at first I didn't know it was real.  It wasn’t an airplane because as soon as it got right above us three lights lit the ground up. It wasn't a helicopter as it was very quiet. The only lights were the ones shining down on us, unlike a plane that would have those flashing lights; this didn't. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Georgia - Two Triangle Shaped Craft Orange Lights

ENIGMA -- I was going outside to bring in my dog on January 19, 2008, when I witnessed two triangle shaped objects over our pasture at 10:21 AM. The crafts were hovering over some pine trees and were standing still. After a couple minutes it took off unlike any aircraft I have ever witnessed. They made no sound and the light underneath the crafts was bright orange. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Gulf of Mexico TX- Offshore Disc UFO

GALVESTON BEACH  -- I work offshore in the Gulf of Mexico and was riding a crew boat back to the Galveston Beach docks on January 13, 2008 when I first saw the object in the eastern skyline while lying down in the sun.  It was a perfectly sunny day and no clouds where in the sky. The boat was traveling north, northeast 20-30 miles off the coastline.

At first, I thought it was a bird but there were no other birds around and it wasn’t moving. I turned to my friend next to me and said, "Look at how high that bird is man!" His first words were, "That is no bird!" The object was stationary for a good five minutes, so it was not a plane. All of sudden while I was looking straight at it, the object vanished and never reappeared. The object was white and curved at the top and flat on the bottom. Almost like a saucer but, it had a slit going through the side of it halfway. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Missouri - Triangle shaped object


NORTH KANSAS CITY -- On my way home from work on December 29, 2007, at 3 PM, I noticed a triangle shaped aircraft flying easterly along the Missouri River. It was white or silverish in color and appeared to have several windows in the side I could see. I had the impression of the windows being ringed in red but I can't be sure.Seeing aircraft in this area isn't uncommon, but flying parallel to the river it caught my eye.

Being it also looked sort of like a small space shuttle I thought that it was out of place as it flew past me and banked left near the 210 and 435 Highway intersection. That's when I noticed that it had come to what appeared to be a complete stop in mid air! I watched the aircraft for a few seconds over my shoulder and even was able to see it in my rearview mirror a couple of times before I exited 210 on to 435 South toward Kansas City. I immediately called my husband and described what happened. I am a 42 year old woman who has been driving the same route for ten plus years. I have never seen anything like this ever. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

New Hampshire - Octagon 

EFFINGHAM -- I live in a beautiful location, facing the mountains and on January 17, 2008, at 7:40 PM, a friend of mine was respecting my rule to open kitchen window to smoke and blow it out, when she started screaming for me to come immediately. It took me all of two seconds to reach that window. What we saw was mind blowing. The sky was completely illuminated. You could literally see the tops of all of the trees as well as 3 layers of colors above them.One layer was baby blue, another was gray , third was almost white. The Big or Little Dipper (not sure) was clearly illuminated in the sky to our left as well as tons of other stars we had been unable to see earlier due to the oncoming storm.We could not take our eyes off these bright objects!

The large one was over the little one and had red lights underneath it. It appeared to be in the shape of an octagon, but it kept darting so quickly that I can’t swear to that. The large shape kept hovering and darting all around the little light and then it just took off, like lightening! It was so quick that I could have sworn I saw a stream behind it.  I do know that the little light kept shining and moved sporadically and much slower than the big one.I then brought my 5 year old to the window and asked him what he thought. His retort was "Mommy, it looks like an eye and I don’t like it looking at me, can I go back and do my lessons on the computer now? My friend was terrified.  I was smoking out the window, when I saw this bright light in the trees out back. It kept going up and down gradually. Next thing I knew it was on top of the tree tops again. I saw an octagon shape at that point. When the lights started going up and down faster I admit I freaked and shouted to my friend to come and see this for yourself.  That’s when I saw the octagon shape with lots of white, green and red lights. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

New Jersey - Nine UFO's seen over a hill and Triangle

MENDHAM -- It was Christmas night and we were walking on the 100 foot hill on the Roxiticus Golf Course It’s the highest hill and we looked across at the Brookrace development and saw three whitish-red lights that were over the hill. It appeared to be a bent radio tower because they were not directly above and below each other, but in a curve shape. I said to my dad, "What’s that"? He said, "I don’t know, there’s no radio tower there"? After two minutes the one in the middle started to move to the right and now appeared to be about 300 feet above the top of the Brookrace hill. The other two lights started to drift to the right in up, down, circular, and diagonal motions.

One minute later, the UFO that is more to the right and about 300 ft above the hill, corkscrewed down in a spiraling motion to about 150 ft above the top of the hill. About 20 seconds later the highest UFO dimmed its light and started moving left of the other two UFO’s. Very soon after the same UFO appeared to turn on lights that went horizontally down the side of the craft. The colors of the lights were green, white and, red.

Soon after the first craft moved away and the most left UFO  followed on a similar flight path. The third UFO stayed in the same area that we first saw it in but was doing amazingly odd movements such as zooming up and down. The top of Brookrace, as a crow flies, is about ¼ of a mile away from our position. The other two UFO’s were now directly behind us and about half a mile higher. Then another UFO came over the Brookrace hill and headed towards the other two UFO’s behind us. They also put their side lights on and as well as all of the other UFO’s dimmed their lights before going into major (fly mode). For the entire time 500 geese on the lake below Brookrace, were making loud distress calls as if something were hurting them.

In about 20 minutes, three more UFO’s came from over the hill and followed the same flight plan. Behind us, the 7 UFO’s were forming a formation that seemed to be like a sideways "T" shape. This is the formation that they made about ¾ of a mile up in the sky directly behind us. The formation consisted of 7 UFO’s. Thirty seconds later, another UFO started coming towards the formation. It looked like this UFO was coming from over the nearby town of Chester, NJ. This was flying at a reasonable rate of speed (about 40-50 mph). The other UFO’s seemed to be going about 20-30 mph considering the amount of land that was passed in a certain amount of time. Thirty seconds later, it eventually joined the formation. As we walked home we saw  a UFO hovering about 80 feet above the lake in a kind of wobbling motion. It appeared to have an internal light and a 30-35 foot long triangular shape. My Dad shined his large spotlight on it about 600 feet away but the light did nothing to help see it. We felt a large vibration through our bodies and hastily left and thought about it the rest of the night. Thanks to Peter Davenport

FREEHOLD TOWNSHIP -- It was December 31, 2007, at 4 AM,  when I heard a loud metal almost sonar like disturbance outside. The sound came from the west (Freehold)had a piercing effect for about 30 seconds or so. We saw a burst of light in the sky and the power the next day was flickering on and off. We also discovered that our dashboard >speedometer in one of our cars was out. IF anyone heard the same metallic piercing noise around 4:30 AM in Freehold NJ on December 31,2007 please post back to me.

On other occasion I was not in Freehold, NJ but at home when talking to my friend who lives in Freehold. I heard a loud piercing metal sonar noise again while on the phone. My friend described a triangular almost diamond object that seemed to hover and had three lights on it that were yellow, green, and white. It was traveling very slow came to a stop and then took off. Again Freehold, NJ two reports: First one December 31, 2007, Second one August 2007. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

BRIDGEPORT --  Charles Stone is watching the sky using astrophotography with boloid entering atmosphere, couple days ago 0n 24 January 2008, at midnight saw a extremely bright light moving west, came slowly in our direction. See reflection off house. Three objects together. Crystal clear to caused the atmosphere to glow and turned to the south.  Light was pulsating at one second. The whole process took five minutes. Slow and very low. No depth perception. No structure. On the 25th January another bright light.  Spotlight, searchlight shining towards the ground. 500 feet away it turns off the light.

New York - Flying Triangle

NEWBURGH -- I was walking my dog and lights to my right caught my attention. I cannot give them a true color as we know it…they were not white and not yellow. They had a very "warm" hue, yet bright and steady. There were no blinking lights and the shape was between a triangle and horseshoe. Not as sharp as a triangle yet more pointed than a horseshoe. The area is very close to a military base so I am VERY used to aircraft, but what was most odd about this is that it was not the sound that caught my attention - but how inordinately low and how methodically it was flying. There was an odd, methodical steadiness of the lights and movement.

The other odd thing was once I noticed it, I could then hear a soft (almost muffled) whooshing sound.  I’d say that is a UFO…..but then low and behold  it literally hovered for just a second  right above this exceptionally large pine tree that stands out above the tree line and hung there in a complete stopped position. As I started to move further out onto my drive to make sure I was really  seeing this "plane" just hovering, it lowered straight down. No angle to the lowering, just a straight line down at the same methodic speed it had been flying. I have determined there is actually about a 30 acre field within ¼ mile of where it appeared lower straight down.

About ten minutes later, I heard an exceptionally LOUD boisterous military aircraft engine fly directly over my home. I again ran outside but I could not see the aircraft. If I had to give it a direction it appeared to be flying towards the Hudson River. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Ohio - Disk

TALLMADGE --Dark colored (rounded off) disk (dome) came over a hillside near the fair grounds at RT 91 and zigzagged for a minute or so like a top on January 20, 2008 at 8:30 PM. It was at least 40 feet wide and 15 feet thick. It seemed to implode and fade away in a few seconds amazing.  Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Oregon - Dragon Fly?


If you want to see hundreds of UFOs flying in a pattern in addition to many more flying into and out of the pattern I can instruct you how to do exactly that. You will need a video camera with a rather long lens (I use a Canon G2) as these craft are not visible to the unaided eye due to speed, distance and you will be looking directly toward the sun. I have nearly five hours of video tape (DV) and about 3,000 digital stills (Sony 828) shot in a number of locations at different times over the last two years in Oregon and California.

These craft can be photographed any time the sun is shining. Did you get that? This is not a onetime event. I get the same results every time I set up my camera, every time. I have a theory that we can hail these craft. Are you ready for contact? There is one craft that is most prevalent but by no means the only type seen. One appears to be manufactured on earth most likely by a secret program of the US military. It looks like a conventional fighter jet except for whatever powers it makes a bright light originating from the wing tips that crosses the middle of the fuselage making it look much like a dragonfly. It is extremely fast perhaps 10 to 20 miles per second. This represents snowflakes on the tip of the iceberg. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Pennsylvania Crash

 KECKSBURG -- A spokesman for NASA finally admitted NASA had examined metallic fragments from the object that crashed at Kecksburg over forty years ago and now claims it was from a re-entering "Russian satellite." Furthermore, the spokesman claimed all records were lost. According to an Associated Press story: The object appeared to be a Russian satellite that re-entered the atmosphere and broke up. NASA experts studied fragments from the object, but records of what they found were lost in the 1990s. It was taken for examination to Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Thanks to Steitz.

Texas Flap


SAN ANTONIO – On January 26, 2008, a UFO visits us regularly. I first noticed the visitations around November when I was actually filming and investigating chemtrail patterns over Northern San Antonio. I began noticing a strong light in the evening hours which I dismissed for Venus. Some days it was visible in the same area of sky and the next it was not. I am a religious person and would pray outside a prayer that I do not know where I learned it from or why I started doing it with my other regular prayers, but since then these visitations had become more frequent, until I stopped praying this prayer recently. I do not claim that this prayer is bringing them around, just the oddness of it happening when it was said.

The lights would change color just like when you look at a satellite at night and I again thought maybe this was the case until it started moving in patterns not typical of helicopters, planes or balloons. At about the size of a peanut from arms length it is neutral for about one minute, then it descends to about the size of a watermelon at arm's length. It then makes what I can only call "shots" across the sky in various directions for about another minute, then the color patterns begin again of amber, green, blue and red rotating in different areas of a circle pattern.

I managed on my last day of doing this prayer to capture it coming down very low almost like it was scanning or wanted a closer look at me and am submitting it here for anyone to look at. It is not common aircraft or a weather balloon. I have seen plenty of those to be able to know the difference. The other thing is there is no sound unless it comes down close like the one in these pictures, then it has a bumblebee sound but very airy to it. I had been having trouble sleeping when all this started staying awake till 3 or 4 in the morning as if someone was in my house. But since stopping that prayer it has quieted down extremely. I will not repeat the prayer nor wish these feelings on anyone else so I am not including it here. I do not expect anyone to believe me nor do I care, I just had to get this off my chest once and for all. Thanks to MUFON CMS

AUBREY -- This is actually my dad's caregiver's story. She does not believe in UFOs but on January  8, 2008, she had gone to the mailbox around 7:30 PM. She wanted to know what an Army Medieval pilot for 25 years had thought of it. After placing her letters in the mailbox, she noticed two very bright and very low flying objects moving quickly toward her, just over the houses. 

She was perplexed by how low and close they were, and as they got closer to her, she realized there was not any noise normally associated with aircraft. Just as they approached her, they made a sharp turn and headed south and out of sight toward Denton. They were shaped like two hands cupped together and had the brightest lights she had ever seen. Thanks to Theresa Wood and MUFON CMS

STEPHENVILLE -- Flashing strobes, silent, flames out the back side of a rectangle with jets chasing it on January 8, 2008 at 6:15 PM. One of the witnesses, is a former military pilot, who witnessed the object directly overhead his location at the time of the sighting.  One of the better reports of the object seen over Stephenville. My friends and I were watching the sunset when several strobes or flashing lights coming from the east at about 3500 feet heading west toward Stephenville flying at 2000 to 3000 mph.

The strobes made several changes of flash patterns and configurations. The flight duration lasted about 3 minutes. The front two strobes were about 1/2 mile apart and the back ones were about 1 mile back from the front strobes. The back side of the flashing lights came to a vertical flashing. Then there were two separate vertical flames about 1/4 mile apart for several seconds and the craft was gone.

Then,about 10 minutes later here came the craft again with two jets chasing. They were headed east towards south Ft. Worth, TX, at about 4000 feet. The jets were unable to catch and went off into the distance at FULL throttle.  I am a pilot and have been flying for 30 years and have never seen anything like this. I also fly several times a week in the area. The craft is NOT from around these parts! The witnesses are a rancher/trucker,  U.S. Postal Service employee, and the owner of a large transportation/trucking firm. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director 
((NUFORC Note: Several reports. Extensive news coverage. NUFORC has spoken with several of the witnesses to this event, and they sound to us to be exceptionally mature and sober-minded individuals. PD))

Police and local business owners are among those who insist they saw a huge silent object with bright lights flying low and fast over the town of Stephenville, 60 miles south west of Fort Worth.Some said they saw fighter jets chasing the craft, which was mostly spotted on one evening - January 8. Unconvinced, local people insist the object was larger, quieter, faster and closer to the ground than an airplane.

Steve Allen, a pilot and freight company owner, said: "People wonderwhat in the world it is because this is the Bible Belt, and everyone is afraid it's the end of times." He described the object he saw as a mile long and half a mile wide. "It was positively, absolutely nothing from these parts," he said.


Looking through the telescopic sights of his rife, Ricky Sorrells, a machinist, said he saw a flat and seamless metallic object hovering about 300 feet over a field.

NEVADA -- Neil sees bright lights in the sky that make quick movements in the sky on a regular basis. These lights are NE of Dallas probably up over Oklahoma. Friends and daughter have also seen them. Saw three last night January 27, 2008, around 7 PM and later at PM.  He states, "I would like MUFON to video these strange lights. See them almost every night. Neil is a businessman that builds furniture. He does not have a computer.  Regards, George Filer


CLARKSVILLE --I saw two large rectangular objects with multicolored lights all around and one had a large red beam. I was driving about 17 miles north of Clarksville, Texas on January 20, 2008, at 8:30 PM, and turned on a Farm to Market Road 195. I suddenly saw this huge bright object and I knew it was not a planet, coming from the north. As it got closer, I could tell it was a rectangular shape as it had multicolored lights all around it and one solid green light underneath. All of a sudden it stopped and a few seconds later, a second object which looked to be like the same as the other one pulled up beside it and there was a red beam of light, looking like a laser but much wider projected to the first object for another 20 to 30 seconds and then it retracted. About 20 more seconds the first object started moving south and then made a quick left and accelerated at a fast speed going east and then it just disappeared. The second object still hovering so to speak, rose upwards, turned and headed back in a north direction from where it came and also suddenly disappeared. This was very strange indeed and I never saw anything like it before and I still wonder just what was that red laser beam of light was and if they were transferring something or repairing something. Both objects were, I perceive to be of a vast size. I do not believe they were from this world. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Washington- Large Triangular/Diamond Shaped

SILVERDALE -- My co-worker and I were headed to work up on December 29, 2007, at 9 PM, on Bainbridge Island when we had just past the Kitsap Mall exit and were going down a straight away on the highway and my coworker noticed an object we first thought was a plane. Large, triangular/diamond shaped, shiny metal, low flying silent object near Bangor naval base. He was concerned because it was very low and we thought it was moving slowly that it might be making a crash landing on the highway. As we neared the same location, (Trigger Ave, outside of Bangor base) as in still or hovering. Then my coworker thought maybe it was a tower but, I’ve lived in this area for a long time and knew there was no tower there.

As we approached it, because it was hovering, I looked at it closely to determine what it was. When we first saw it looked like a plane with wing tip lights (white), a head light (white) in the middle and I think I remember a red light. Underneath the object there were more lights (white), not sure how many. From what I could make out between the lights was the object was triangular or diamond shaped and looked to be made of a shiny metal like aluminum of some sort. It was hovering about 500 feet in the air, a few yards from the highway, over a farm. That night skies were clear for the most part but a little cloud cover. The object was in a little low cloud but, still visible. The object was large and it was silent. Weather it be alien or new military technology my co-worker and I know for a fact we saw something out of the ordinary that night.We saw a triangle shaped object for five minutes. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

LONGVIEW -- On January 21, 2008, my son woke me at 3:42 AM, who is 15 yrs old, he and his best friend were coming back over to our house at 3:40 AM across the street when they saw a UFO fly over. He was scared and excited and wanted us to do something. He said it looked like a tube like shape with lights on each end. It traveled from the north and was moving faster than a airplane then all of a sudden it went so fast it was gone. Both my son and J. saw this so after he woke us that is all I could think about. Therefore, I am trying to find out if someone else saw it this morning or has this shape ever been described?

Comments: I am planning to obtain more information about this sighting. Obviously the two teens were frightened by what they saw. Given available information not much can be concluded about this sighting. Updates will be posted. Thanks to Bill Puckett UFOS Northwest

  Australia - Witness Films Three Level Object  


SYDNEY -- I was out on my balcony in early May 2007 about 6:30 p.m., and saw a funny looking star in the northwest sky at dusk, just dark. I took some pictures, but didn't look at the picture until today, and all I have done is crop it a bit. I was expecting to see something like an asteroid with a tail or something not a three level object with light on each level. I nearly fell of the chair when I saw that three level one. I am on the north shore of Sydney (Lane Cove) which is about 10 minutes drive to the City of Sydney. It was in the northwest.


The object just seemed to sit there for five minutes so I took some photos,  then it was gone. I thought it had just gone out of view. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research. Email: [email protected] Website:

PERTH -- On the first of January, 2008, 1630 Zulu, I was driving home along Canning highway, from Fremantle toward the east and saw a bright yellow and a bit orange light at high attitude. It was about the size of a street light observed from ground. At first I thought it was a Police and SAR helicopter doing a search mission.  I am a private pilot myself.  Five minutes passed and it was still sitting there and there was aircraft departing from Jandakot Airport. This was clearly something that I never had seen before. Even from distance I can identify the NAV light and strobe light from aircraft.  The unidentified light source position was in the east for 20 minutes. After I got back home it still did not move so I went inside. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Bahamas - Six objects over Ship

NASSAU --The picture was taken on December 28, 2007 at 11:23 AM Bahamas time (10:23 CT, with a Canon Powershot S410 from the ship MS Zuiderdam (Holland America Line). The ship was coming into port of Nassau, Bahamas and no sound was noticed.
My focus was on the beautiful old yachts, and the six shiny objects in the upper right corner of the picture were noticed when pictures were transferred into the computer. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Canada - Disk

POPKUM, B.C. -- There were four of us outside taking a cigarette break and we all observed an object moving in a westerly zigzagging ascension. We then alerted two more to come see it at 4:10 PM, on January 26, 2008. It was snowing and snow clouds covered the sky and the disc or pill shaped object observed was below cloud level. It was silent and flipping, not rotating. It was hard to tell whether it was black or silver but it looked metallic. It appeared to disappear into the clouds after twenty minutes. It appeared to be about the size of a car. Some of the group thought it might be a type of balloon, but its movements were not in keeping with that and it was much larger than a balloon and kept a steady speed.

MONTREAL -- I was gone during the holidays, and when I phoned home on January 3, 2008, my mother informed me that she was staring at a strange light over Pierre Eliot Trudeau Airport. She said it resembled a metallic stick, and that it hovered over the Airport for a few minutes, and flew off at a fast speed, westbound. We were wondering if anyone else had seen the phenomena. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research.

Grand Canary Island - Seven Bright Lights

On the first of January, 2008, at 1:44 AM, seven flying bright lights were seen moving very close together. They were very bright and looked to be circular and flying very close together slowly, then going very fast. They flew apart then close together at one point and three made a triangle shaped object very close together. It was in Gran Canaria on New Year's Eve, fireworks had ended and we were all fascinated with the lights for ten  minutes, that were totally unexplainable.  Thanks to Peter Davenport Director ((NUFORC Note: Possible party lanterns, but that is a guess. Many other reports. PD))

Netherlands -Eight lighted UFO's

-- On New Year’s Eve 2007, around 7 PM, my boyfriend saw a couple of yellow orange lighted objects in a cylindrical form coming from  one side of the city towards our apartment building. The lights became clearer in a few minutes, and we thought they were some kind of fireworks, since everyone was busy with them that evening.

We live on the eighth floor. Later we counted eight objects that stood suspended in the sky for about three minutes. Suddenly they went up and started to disappear, but they didn’t make any noise. I took a few pictures with my digital camara, but they are unclear. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Portugal - UFO Photo


ÉVORA ALENTEJO -- Hugo writes, "I was taking pictures of my dog in the snow and didn´t hear or see anything on January 20, 2006.  Aircraft were not flying that day due to the ice on the asphalt runway. If it was a plane I would have heard it. Later looking at the  pictures I saw this very strange object.  Before the pictures the dog  was very excited and running to different people and playing. After the photo the dog became quiet and still,  and didn't play for 20 or 30 minutes. Thanks to Hugo and MUFON CMS.

Scotland - Five Round Orange Balls of Light

CLYDEBANK -- At 1 AM, on January 2, 2008, I was looking out of my window at low cloud cover, when I spotted a large orange ball flying towards my house about 1000 yards away. It slowed down and went into the clouds. As I watched another two lights came side by side and flew into the same part of the cloud cover. Then another two flew towards my house with one behind the other. These flew into the clouds and then all the shore and land birds started going mad for some reason.

It all lasted for about two minutes. I just wish I had a camera to prove it to other people. Even to my own wife who was asleep in bed at the time. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research.
