In special reports, this week’s files cover: Commander Graham Bethune’s UFO Sighting, War of the Worlds May be Real, Mars Gorilla-like Creature in NASA Photo, Mars Mystery: Here’s What We Know, China Lands First Jet on Aircraft Carrier, ISS Spots UFO? Colonel Amos Chalif Dies, and Malta’s Ancient Ruts

Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over: Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Hawaii, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia.

Sightings of UFOs were also reported in: Australia, Brazil, Canada, India, Philippines, Portugal, Poland, Norway, South Africa, and England in the United Kingdom.

The purpose of these files is to report the UFO eyewitness and photo/video evidence that occurs on a daily basis around the world and in space. These Files assume that extraterrestrial intelligent life not only exists, but my hypothesis is that the over a thousand UFOs reported each month represent technologically advanced spacecraft conducting surveillance of Earth. I personally became interested in UFOs when London Control ordered me to intercept one over England while flying for the US Air Force and Prince Phillip told me of his personal interest in UFOs. The US Air Force investigated UFOs for more than twenty years under Project Blue Book; and I continue this advanced research. I believe the God of the universe has spread life throughout the cosmos and UFO’s are visiting us in ever-increasing numbers.

Filer’s Files are now being emailed to 12,850 addresses each week plus 500 copies are forwarded to more thousands. Consider forwarding them to your friends and neighbors.
Dedicated to 5 year old Georgie Filer V whose motto was “Be Happy” and Eddie Pedrick my

Special Reports

Commander Graham Bethune UFO Sighting

Commander Graham Bethune is a retired Navy Pilot and a good friend. During his 26 years of active duty he qualified in over 100 different models of aircraft.

In February 5, 1951, he and two other Navy Pilots were sent to Keflavik, Iceland on a Secret mission to meet with the Icelandic Government and Lockheed Overseas, who managed the Airport.

On February 10, 1951, while Piloting a four engine Navy R5D Transport returning from Keflavik, to Argentia, Newfoundland, he had an eight minute encounter with an "Unidentified Flying Object" that was 300 feet in diameter.
The first chapter of Major Keyhoe's book "Flying Saucers Top Secret" is devoted to this famous encounter

During the Disclosure Project, Commander Bethune revealed his Flight 124 from Keflavik, Iceland was involved with a near miss of a UFO in 1951, about 300 miles outside of Argentia, Newfoundland, over the Atlantic Ocean flying a R5D aircraft. Here is Graham’s account of his sighting.

My name is Graham Bethune. I am a commander, retired pilot from the Navy and I went through the regular Navy program of training pilots. I graduated in 1943 from Pensacola Academy Air. All Navy pilots are trained navigators, which is very important because we had to know all of the star system. I navigated maybe 13 years around the planet with the stars. And when I first graduated from Pensacola in 1943 I went to the South Atlantic and we were hunting German submarines. This was all night flying.

Everything we did was at night in patrol planes.
I was transferred to Air Transport Squadron One in 1950. I was sent to Keflavik, Iceland, along with two other officers after a meeting that they had in Washington, D.C., where Iceland was involved in seeing UFOs over Keflavik, Iceland, and they wanted troops up there to protect them.

During our meeting they were explaining to us why they had requested the troops and what they were seeing. And we asked them if they could really go into more detail about the type of craft that they were seeing. And their explanation was that they were seeing lighted circular craft at night. And we knew coming from a Naval Air Test Center, that we had nothing like that that we had tested.

So I asked them, well, what did our government tell you that they were? And they said, “Your government said they were experimental, probably experimental Russian bombers.”

The flight was normally about ten hours. But this particular night we had a 16-knot head wind. “About maybe 300 to 400 miles outside of Argentia, Newfoundland, I saw something below the horizon, on the water, that looked like approaching a city at night. It was just kind of an ambient light, no definition whatsoever. But it looked like we were approaching a large city at night. So I watched it for a while about 1:00 AM.
Finally I called Kinden’s attention to it, who was sitting in the right seat. He was route checking me. He took a look at it but didn’t know what it was. We couldn’t figure out, there is only ocean out there. We had passed over the guard ship already. The guard ship had told us the weather was clear and no Northern Light activity, and there were no ships plotted in that area.

Control confirmed we were on course and hundreds of miles from land. So we watched it for a while and we were drifting to the right of it. Our heading was 222 degrees at 10,000 feet and we were 40 miles away originally. When we were about 25 or 30 miles away we could see defined lights and there was a pattern on the water. So, with that pattern we couldn’t figure out what was going on. It was a circular pattern. And it was very large.

So I sent the crew chief back to get the other plane commander, Al Jones, because they wanted to land at Argentia. There were 31 passengers and we had two VIP crews that had pilots also, and patrol plane pilots. And at the time that they came forward, the lights went out on the water. There was nothing on the water. This was about 15 miles away. I mean it was just dark.
Now standing behind me was the navigator, the radioman, and also the plane captain – the cockpit was full. All of a sudden we saw, on the water, a yellow halo that was very, very small, about 15 miles away. And it came up to 10,000 feet like that – a fraction of a second.
And I thought that it was going to go right through us. So I disengaged the autopilot, pushed the nose over, because I was going to go under it at the angle that it was coming toward me.

The minute I did that it was up at our altitude and I could see nothing outside of the cockpit but this craft. And so I didn’t know which way to go. And then all of a sudden I heard a racket. I didn’t know what it was. And I said, “Fred, what the hell was that? He looked around and he said, “Everyone was ducking in the back of us and they collided and they are all lying on the deck back there, scrambling on the deck.”

When I looked back it wasn’t there. And he said, “It’s over here on the right hand side. Now it was about a mile or so away. It kind of drifted forward, maybe to a position five miles away, and that’s where it stayed with us for quite some time.”

This is when we could first see it was below our altitude. But it was still above the horizon where you could see the side of the craft. You could see the dome and you could see the color around the perimeter of the craft.
And then we knew that it was a friendly encounter. We knew that it knew that we were there and had come out to see us. But we didn’t think the reason that it flew up was because they wanted to show us what the Icelanders were talking about.
We watched it for a while and Al says, “Let him get in the seat. So I let him get in the seat and he disengaged the autopilot and was going to chase it.” We had a head wind of about 60-knots, so our ground speed was only maybe 125 knots. So he wasn’t going to go too far in chasing this thing. But he did turn to chase it.

Initially the UFO color was yellow. Since then I’ve learned from the boys upstairs why we saw different colors as it was coming toward us. The colors were around the perimeter. And it turned from a yellow to an orange to almost a fiery red and then almost a purplish red. And they said that that had to do with the amount of energy being used or dissipated. It had to do with the UFO power settings. When it slowed down, close to us, in a fraction of a second, it was back to the yellow range. And it was foggy around it or a plasma mist.

I decided to go back to see how the passengers reacted, and went to talk to the doctor. I said, “Doc, did you see what we saw? He looked me straight in the eye and said, “Yeah, it was a flying saucer. He says, "I didn’t look at it because I don’t believe in such things”. Well, it took me a couple of seconds to realize what he was saying. He couldn’t believe, being a psychiatrist, in that kind of thing. So I went back forward and I said, “Al, whatever you do don’t tell anybody we saw anything, they will lock us up as soon as we get on the ground”. He says, “It’s too late. I just called Gander control, to see if they could track this by radar. So that’s how the story got out”.

When we landed at Argentia, an Air Force officer interrogated us and showed us photos of UFOs asking me to choose the type we had seen. He made a good report, which went to the headquarters of the Air Force in Washington, D.C.

Commander Bethune flew Naval Transports for 12 years, was a "VIP Transport Plane Commander," and held a "Top Secret" clearance. He was a test pilot and served six years with the Naval Bureau of Aeronautics. He accumulated over 10,000 Navy and civilian flying hours. He has flown the Secretary of the Navy, Secretary of the Army, Chief of Naval Operations, Commandant of the Marine Corps, the Supreme Allied Commander, and the NATO Commander Admiral Lynde McCormick, and numerous admirals. If a UFO crashed or an important meeting concerning UFOs occurred he would be chosen to pilot the VIPs to their destination. The other event was in the American SW, I believe Commander Bethune had mentioned somewhere in Utah - this craft was also about 100' in diameter and slightly oval - both events had high ranking US Army and Navy officers in attendance as well as scientists and academics from various stateside universities. Both discs were retrieved and brought back to Wright Patterson.

Frank Chili sent me this photo that was given to him by Commander Bethune. He was quite insistent that US Air Force was getting the focus of UFO attention from the public, but the real player in this and always behind the scenes was the US Navy. Graham was informed by Admiral Forney himself and Graham never doubted that a ploy was set-up to divert attention away from the Navy. He also claimed we had a base on the moon and we had a Navy space shuttle fleet. He felt truth is often stranger than science fiction that ET movies are supported by the government to create acceptance. Thanks to the Disclosure Project and Frank Chili.

George Wolkind writes, “Paula and I are saddened by the news of Graham Bethune’s passing away. We both really thought that he was special and he will be missed. He always treated everyone with love and respect. We honor his life and service to his country and his courage to stand up for the truth. He is and always will be the light that will never be extinguished. His wonderful smile that lit up a room now lights up the sky.” Thanks to George Wolkind in Colorado. Go in Peace and Love Graham

War of the Worlds May be Real

He was afraid the words of H. G. Wells, in his War of the Worlds were realistic.

“No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man’s and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinized and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinize the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water.

Yet across the gulf of space, minds that are to our minds as ours are to those of the beasts that perish, intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic, regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us.

The immediate pressure of necessity has brightened their intellects, enlarged their powers, and hardened their hearts. And looking across space with instruments and intelligences such as we have scarcely dreamed of…
And we men, the creatures who inhabit this earth, must be to them at least as alien and lowly as are the monkeys and lemurs to us. The Martians seem to have calculated their descent with amazing subtlety–their mathematical learning is evidently far in excess of ours–and to have carried out their preparations with a well-nigh perfect unanimity.”

Mars Gorilla-like Creature in NASA Photo

Scott C. Waring and I wrote a few books and I’m currently an ESL School Owner in Taiwan...
And we found this image in Gusev Crater on Mars taken by the Spirit Rover.

I found this interesting video on YouTube and the person seems to have found an actual animal on the surface of Mars. This creature's face has a mouth, cheeks, firm eyebrow area, and a gorilla-like body. Of course this could just be another ancient carving that survived the test of time. Remember the other famous statues of woman human-like figures on Mars? If you want to see it on the NASA site in the upper right corner of NASA Spirit Rover:
Mars Mystery: Here’s what we know

NASA says its Curiosity rover has made a discovery on Mars, but isn't saying more. Hypotheses have ranged from a discovery of complex organic matter to chemicals indicating the presence of water. By J. Nicholas Hoover InformationWeek

Results of soil sample analysis by NASA's Curiosity rover may have yielded a significant scientific discovery on Mars. Until NASA makes a more detailed announcement at a conference in early December, the public will have to sift through available clues.

The discovery was made by Curiosity's Sample Analysis at Mars instrument, (SAM). The Rover's onboard chemistry lab is capable of identifying organic compounds — the carbon-containing building blocks of life. The tool's mass spectrometer separates compounds and elements by mass to help scientists identify them, while the chromatograph vaporizes samples and analyzes the resulting gasses, and the laser spectrometer measures isotopes of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen in gasses. "Because these compounds are essential to life as we know it, their relative abundances will be an essential piece of information for evaluating whether Mars could have supported life in the past or present,"

NASA plans to announce the news at the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union, which takes place December 3 to 7 in San Francisco.

Editor’s Note: I spoke with Dr. Gilbert Levin who developed the Labeled Release (LR) experiments for NASA’s two Viking Landers that landed on Mars in 1976, who states, “The scientific process forces me to my conclusion, the Viking LR experiment detected living microorganisms in the soil on Mars”.

China Lands First Jet on Aircraft Carrier

BEIJING: The Chinese military has successfully landed a new fighter jet on the Liaoning Aircraft Carrier, according to a report by Xinhua, the state news agency. China Central Television showed a video of the J-15 jet landing on the deck of the carrier, which was put into service in September. The video also showed the yellow jet successfully taking off from the carrier. The carrier and jet are a symbol of China's modernization and its desire to extend its combat capacity.

China's military abilities and budget still lag far behind those of the United States.
China bought the carrier years ago called the Varyag from Ukraine and has completed more than 100 training and test programs. The report said the J-15 jet was designed and made in China and is the nation's "first generation multipurpose carrier-borne fighter jet." The jet is comparable to Russia's Su-33 and the United States' F-18, according to Xinhua.

ISS Spots UFO?

This image was taken by an Astronaut on the International Space Station in May of 2012.

This is an amazing UFO Photo, but it may be lightning above the clouds. This is allegedly a UFO photo from a government website.

A larger photo is at:

Malta’s Ancient Ruts

David from Malta writes, “All over Malta and our sister island of Gozo in the Mediterranean Sea there are strange parallel tracks carved in the ground rock. They go off cliffs, across bays and even underwater and are believed to be prehistoric.”
They are commonly called "cart ruts" but since they're so ancient and as far as I know there's no historical information about them, one can't really be sure what their function was.
This link seems to be the official website:
We also have prehistoric temples, some of the most ancient on the planet, which were built to have astronomical functions besides religious functions. And there are also subterranean temples which have certain acoustic properties and some researchers even say could have been portals to other dimensions, but as far as I know that is just speculation.
The Austrian out of place artifact collector, Klaus Dona, has been to this island to do research concerning elongated skulls in historical museums on the island shown here.

As you surely know, the elongated skulls phenomenon is found in other parts of the world like in South America. There are also underwater archaeological structures here like a passage way and an arch and I'm sure there is more. We can only imagine how ancient they are.
Thanks again for the great e-mails. Best regards, David Note: In Peru they are said to be related to ancient UFOs.

Colonel Amos Chalif, the 'Heart and Soul' of the Shooting Star Dies

Colonel Amos Chalif, USAF ret. takes his last flight on November 2, while waiting for a doctor’s appointment. Peggy his wife said it was very peaceful in the way he passed away. He was a gentleman, a great man who always supported these files. He served his country well and will be greatly missed. We drove together to Washington D.C. discussing the reality of UFOs.

Sightings in the United States

Alaska Disk

ANCHORAGE -- A disk with a couple of bright lights was just sitting in the sky, just exactly where planes turn around Cook Inlet. When I went outside to look at it from the balcony, it changed in illumination and color, showing a spiky halo around it. Each spike was blue towards the middle, with tips/ends. It was alternating this shape with the saucer that had three bright lights. It was not windy, so it was not an airplane on a stall position. I observed it for about five minutes outside. When I went back in, it was still there. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center

Arkansas Rectangle

DAMASCUS – At first, I thought I saw planes flying very low, but they were silent. I have watched night after night and finally one was in the right place at right time on November 6, 2012, at 9 PM. It was a solid dark rectangle with one light in the center and one on each corner. They flash like lighting when low but stop flashing when higher. They start flying at dark and stop about 9 PM. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center

Arizona Light

KINGMAN -- I was driving east on the I-40, near Flagstaff, at 2AM, on November 25, 2012. It was a dark night and suddenly the northern sky became very bright. About 1000 feet AGL there was an enormous, energetic explosion of blue and white light with a shower of sparks like an electrical surge. The explosion seemed to create a ring-like effect, out of which emerged a large, oblong, glowing object. It had a blue, laser-like appearance.

The object rapidly "skittered" and dashed across the sky, westward in 5 or 6 seconds leaving a trail of "sparks." By chance my video recorder was on and I was able to capture the majority of the event. Thanks to MUFON CMS

California Lights

PAL VERDE -- This was November 14, 2012, around 8-9 PM, camping at Pal Verde on the border of California and Arizona.

We watched these lights dance in the sky for a good twenty minutes dripping fire. It was quite a spectacle :)  Thanks to Wesley Robertson

Colorado Light

GOLDEN -- On November 25, 2012, I asked my husband to pull off the road as I saw a beautiful Sun Dog out the passenger side window and I wanted to take a photo.

I took some snapshots, as we drove further, the brilliance and size of the Sun Dog grew and I again asked him to pull over for me to try to take photos with my iPad, and I did this a few times more when the Sun Dog split into three sections, prior to arriving in Conifer.

When we finally reached our destination, we looked at the photos that showed numerous white dots that were in different locations on various photos. Thanks to MUFON CMS

 Florida Moon Object

PALM HARBOR -- I was driving North on County Road #1 in Dunedin area to work on November 1, 2012, and looked up to my left, to see the Moon. To my astonishment, a very bright spherical object with a pinkish hue around the edges appeared to fly off the surface of the Moon! It was ascending slightly at the 11 o’clock angle. I saw this for three seconds and glanced at the road again, then right away looked up, it was still there ascending, after two seconds as I'm looking right at it, the object instantly disappeared! I about flipped out! Thanks to MUFON CMS

Hawaii Orange Spotlight

LAIE – An orange spotlight multiplied gradually to thirteen lights that shined on two witnesses as they fled on November 20, 2012, at 1:30 PM. It started with one bright white light that flashed to an orange spotlight, and then turned off. It then reappeared with more lights as they disappeared in a pattern until there were about thirteen lights. They shined brightly on the two witnesses as they fled Hukilau Beach. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center

Illinois Lights

NAPERVILLE -- I was driving on November 21, 2012, about 7:05 PM, and observed a "falling star" in the east. Fifteen minutes later as I was traveling south down Book Road and saw dim orange lights hovering at a low altitude. I decided to pull over and observe the 35 to 50 feet in diameter object. The orange lights were in a triangular pattern moving north. There also appeared to be a dim orange light connecting each of the three outer orange lights to the middle/center light. The object flew faster toward the northeast ascending and turned. Thanks to MUFON CMS

CICERO -- I went out for a smoke on November 14, 2012, and looked at the sky and saw something unusual so I went back inside and grabbed my camcorder to record this object. I saw a solid white/orb flying pass at low altitude coming from northwest to southeast that then disappeared. This UFO was flying like it was in a hurry but moving casually and smooth. I knew it wasn’t a plane or balloon because it was just a white solid glowing object moving pretty quickly without making any type of noise. I was amazed to see something like this again because this wasn’t the first time I’ve see this object pass by. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Maryland Jellyfish UFO

BALTIMORE – These objects were filmed on a Sony HD Cybershot in bright daylight on November 21, 2012. The eyewitness states, “I was unable to use the on screen monitor so much of view is out of frame. Movement was almost due south at about 20 mph. Video is a clip of almost 16 minutes of view time. The lighting was definitely a reflection from Sun, There were very wispy clouds at about 20,000 feet and object was at about this height, dropping in and out of view as obscured from clouds.” Posted by Scott C Waring  Share to Facebook

Michigan Light

 FERNDALE -- On Thanksgiving at 6:55 AM, November 22, 2012, I was just taking random pictures of my neighborhood, when I caught an object streak across the sky east of me. In the picture you can make out the white dot between the light pole and the power line pole just about dead center of both.

Note: The photo was enlarged about 1.5 times and could be Venus which was visible in the east. However, the object appears to be between the power line and the photographer so this explanation is unlikely. There may have been an electrical short on the line. Thanks to William Puckett, Director

Missouri Triangle

ST. LOUIS -- It was barely visible at first, but my 11-year old daughter spotted it on November 17, 2012. I’m surprised my daughter spotted it because it was hard to detect in the night sky. It was clearly a black triangle when overhead and made no noise.

It only had some faint lighting around the edges, which may have been a reflection from the city below. It disappeared over some high cirrus clouds, so it was very large. It was stunning to watch! Thanks to MUFON CMS

Montana Brown Circles

 MISSOULA -- Various sized discolored circles were found in the backyards of houses in our subdivision using Google Earth. These were found on a map of Google Earth taken in 2011. They no longer can be seen on the new maps of Google Earth! There are no other circles in the surrounding area where we live. I do not think they were caused by fertilizer, watering, springs, etc. As you can see they are of varying size and density of color. I measured those in my backyard and they were 28 feet in diameter. Thanks to MUFON CMS

New Jersey Photos

HOBOKEN -- I was leaving home at 6:45 AM, Monday morning on November 14, 2012, and looked up to see a thin white elongated oval moving southwest. I quickly ran to my car and grabbed my Canon Camera 20 D and took 15 shots of the object before it passed behind my building. The object moved at a steady pace without noise. Thanks to Doug Auld

CARNEYS POINT -- I was at my residence when I received a call from Mike Nelson, who was travelling south on Route 130, a mile north of me on November 25, 2012.  He reported that he was observing a group of lighted objects similar to those he observed twenty days ago. He stopped at my residence and picked me up and we travelled a mile to the Delaware River, where the objects were now visible north of the Delaware Memorial Bridge, travelling south at about 5000 feet altitude six road miles south of us.

By the time we reached the beach at Delaware Avenue ten minutes had passed. The group of objects was now located south of the bridge and only three were visible, pulsing brighter then dimmer then winking out twenty minutes into the sighting. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Oregon Orange Lights

On November 22, 2012, at around 6:15 PM, I went outside to smoke and saw a series of orange orbs in the night sky. Most of them were in a perfect equidistant line. I ran back inside and told my wife and friend to come out. The orbs stayed in position for a short time and then they started slowly moving. They were perfectly round, the size of dime at arm’s length and very bright orange. We just stood there and watched and noticed one was dimming and then another one appeared when the dim one disappeared. Two more appeared when others disappeared then the rest of them slowly disappeared. Some moved left, some right, some up for ten minutes. The lights are all uniform, spherical dots in the picture and don't really show the size. Thanks to MUFON CMS

 Pennsylvania Photos

LANSDALE -- The picture was taken on November 16, 2012, at 7:13 PM, as my sons and daughter are always camera ready. The objects are bright orange lights and I told my daughter to snap a picture. It’s almost become unsurprising to my children when we see them.

We always look every night to see if lights are out of place. One was shaped like a boomerang. Five of us: my daughter 19 years, my two sons 14 and 13 and my grandson who is 4 and I saw this object. Thanks to MUFON CMS

PHILADELPHIA – On November 22, 2012, I noticed blinking lights high in sky, and thought it was a star.

I grabbed my camcorder to get a closer look, and for a brief few seconds saw two rows of lights. Thanks to MUFON CMS

 Texas Lights

FLINT -- I wanted to share a video and account of a sighting that I and my daughter had on November 16, 2012.
We were celebrating my Mom’s 70th birthday and my 16 years old daughter had brought her telescope to watch the meteor shower scheduled that night.

We got to the marina and parked at the lakes edge and saw some moving bright stars. Around 10:30 PM, I saw a nickel size bright object that was pulsating red, white, and blue inside its core. It flew south away from us and my daughter got tired so we went home. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Virginia Picture

On November 23, 2012, I was driving through Virginia and took a picture of the clear sky with nothing in the sky.

When I looked closely there was a UFO looking object in the picture but not visual in the sky.  Thanks to MUFON CMS

 Worldwide UFO Sightings

Australia Lights

MELBOURNE – These lights were recorded on the same day as the 'armada fleets' footage of November 11, .2012.

Brazil Photos

 RIO DAS OSTRAS --- Hello folks at MUFON, I am single and saw two UFOs around here on November 25, 2012.
 I went up to the balcony of my house that has a city view and looked to the sky and went to take a picture. I saw in the camera cell phone a flying object doing strange maneuvers. I was afraid, but took five pictures using the screen to see the mobile objects. I've been running shows for my Mom. I do not know much English. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Canada Triangle

RICHMOND HILL – On November 23, 2012, my husband and I were travelling north on Leslie, north of Elgin Mills at 6:30 PM. I first noticed the triangular object directly north of us. The distance from the left and right points on the triangle was much farther apart than the top point to the bottom. There were lights at each corner that kept changing to different colors. There were two spotlights shining on the underside or side of the object. These spotlights were on the far left and far right of the object - near the corners, and pointing toward the middle of the object.

It was between 500 and 750 feet away when I pointed it out to my husband, and we watched it travel southeast toward Markham. He was shocked and commented that he had no clue what it was. It definitely did not look like a commercial aircraft. Thanks to MUFON CMS

TORONTO – At 10:17 AM, on November 13, 2012, I took five pictures of the CN Tower some eight kilometers west of me at 10:17 AM. The last photo taken had a strange white translucent anomaly near the tower.
 I am still uncertain if it was a plane or reflection. Could this be a UFO craft briefly uncloaked caught on film? I never saw this with the naked eye.

Note: The object(s) could be clouds? However, the fact that the objects didn’t show up on other photos taken in the session casts some doubt on this explanation. The official weather observation near the time of the sighting showed a few clouds at 3,000 feet and 5,000 feet. Thanks to William Puckett, Director

India Red Circle

BANGALORE – A red balloon shaped object was seen moving south across the western sky five minutes after midnight on November 19, 2012. A red circle was seen flying at moderate speed and faded out of view all of a sudden. Using binoculars, the shape of the object was like a balloon. There was an orangish glow in the lower part of the object, making it look like a flying lantern. The sighting lasted for less than a minute, until the object faded out of view.

The object did not have any sort of resemblance to an aircraft. There were no flashing lights. It was moving faster than a hot air balloon and mysteriously faded out of view. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center

Philippines Fireball

My husband and I saw the strange orange lights on three separate occasions. The first one was a few days ago on November 11 or 12, when I was hanging laundry on our second floor balcony at 10:20 PM. I saw a single orange light slowly moving silently above me. It slowly vanished in the clouds towards the north. I called my husband to check it out.

The second sighting was a single bright orange orb observed on November 16, 2012, at about 7 PM, flying east soundlessly that vanished in the clouds. The third one was three and half hours later, when my family was going on a road trip and saw the orange orb again going to the east. My husband yelled it wasn’t an airplane, as there were 10 to 15 orbs flying east. The first group of orbs was flying in a wide triangular shape. The second group formed a line. They all vanished in the same spot.

They didn’t look like Chinese Lanterns because they formed a triangle and vanished in the same spot. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center

Poland Disc

JELESNIA -- My friend and I were walking in the fields and woods in a small town near Zywiec in May of 2004. We took photos with a digital Camera and when looked at them on computer we saw a black object in the sky. We thought that it could be a Sailplane.

However, we took a photo and turned around and made another photo, and this "thing" is on both photos in the same place.  Thanks to MUFON CMS

Portugal Light

PORTO – My friend and I were driving on the freeway at 11:30 PM, on August 11, 2012, to go to the port, and stopped at the first roundabout after the lighthouse to smoke! We saw a flying object for 30 seconds, but we did not think it was a plane. Then something went wrong and I managed to fall asleep for several hours. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center Unsure of Portuguese translation?

South Africa Lights

PRETORIA -- We saw two shooting stars, but realized they were travelling parallel to each other on November 4, 2012 at 7:30 PM, not coming down towards earth. They were moving at extreme speed and started crossing back and forth each other's paths. They looked like dull stars moving across the sky and were definitely not any manmade object.

I grew up next to an air force base and their speed was as fast as a shooting star, and they were changing direction in a flash and zigzagging. There was a definite pattern to their maneuvers and they were gone in five seconds. We are both intelligent people that are100% sure that it was no meteorite. These were made by someone clearly able to maneuver in a very exact manner, only so fast it seemed incredible. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center

UK/England Sphere

LEIGHTON BUZZARD  -- Whilst smoking in my back garden at 10:10 PM, looking into the sky I noticed a bright orange light approaching from the SW. I observed two fast moving orange spheres within five minutes near Bedfordshire on November 1, 2012. The constant orange glow and the absence flashing of wing lights triggered my curiosity as it flew silently across the sky in ten seconds.

It flew in a straight line with identical brightness in the front and rear and these were not aircraft landing lights. Having witnessed two separate similar events two years ago, the hair on my neck started to tingle. Within a minute, I noticed an identical orange ball approaching from exactly the same point in the sky. It seemed to be flying on the same track at the same speed. This time l reached for a pair of binoculars. (8x30 Carl Zeiss). The binoculars gave me a very clear view of a perfect sphere emitting a constant bright orange glow. There also appeared to be a very slight ultra violet iridescence glow. Thanks to MUFON CMS
