THE GREAT AWAKENING FOR A REMARKABLE NEW CENTURY
It is obvious that there is new interest and excitement over the realization
that UFOs are real, and we might not be alone in the universe. To sum
knowledge as an Ufologist, I have learned that most media personnel,
scientists, military, congressional and government employees know very
about UFOs. Most have never studied the subject or been privy to highly
classified and compartmentalized data. You the average reader know a
deal more than 99% of these people. Most of you have visited web sites
released government documents that indicate about 30% of the sightings
unknowns and insufficient information. We are in a sense the teachers
experts. You are very important to the future of our world because of
knowledge. Recently there have been more than 400 sightings reported
month by concerned witnesses. The majority of these reports involve
witnesses who spend several hours reporting their sighting. The craft
frequently seen at low altitudes well below normal air traffic. Most
observations were for several minutes' duration. This is very different
a conventional aircraft conducting normal business; they seldom stay
for more than a minute. Often the reports involve an object hovering
above the trees. We are also obtaining more frequent UFO reports from
and radar operators. Many of my Air Force friends and I have chased
I've met with several of our astronauts who have seen them. We are obtaining
video footage from our Space Shuttle missions that show them. Our satellites
and Deep Space Sensors are also observing them. When we send our probes
Mars less than a third make it through. I feel the "Environmental Space
Sciences" book authored by Colonel Don G. Carpenter and taught at the
States Air Force Academy is correct. Page 696 states: "From available
information, the UFO phenomenon may have been global in nature for almost
50,000 years." (snip) "This leaves us with the unpleasant possibility
alien visitors to our planet, or at least of alien controlled UFOs."
these craft and their crews have come to earth on a regular basis, we
assume they have influenced our lives throughout history.
We are nearing the time for elections for many politicians. I encourage
to support those candidates that will not be stonewalled by pat answers
the UFO problem. Jimmy Carter had his own sighting and ran partially
platform to provide answers about UFOs. After being elected, he ignored
subject and still does today. John Moss a California politician is the
of the Freedom of Information Act. He was surprised to learn that its
primary use is for obtaining information on UFOs. They remain of great
interest to the American people. I have been writing Filer's Files for
years and sending it out to several hundred people a week. A few months
Chuck Warren volunteered to build a Web Site for me. I want to thank
for his hard work. During December, a half million people visited our
Site. This is proof of the amazing interest in UFOs. I want to thank
Janet for making these Files possible, she goes to work selling real
while I stay home and put them together.
Its time to say farewell to the 1900s, where I learned a couple important
lessons in my life that you might enjoy.
(1) Love one another, especially your spouse!
(2) UFOs are real and we owe allot to great persons like Major Donald
Leonard Stringfield, J. Allen Hynek, Karla Turner, and James McDonald
have passed on in the search for the truth.
(3) Ancient religious writings have great wisdom. I encourage everyone
receive the comfort of religious faith in his or her life.
(4) I learned that when you see certain code words such as fire in the
and clouds in ancient religious writings, they mean UFOs. The Bible,
Dyzon, Koran, Maha-Brharata, and Torah are some of the best UFO books
(5) Wars are bad, its time to stop them.
(6) It is important to search for the truth since it is the foundation
knowledge. Schools that don't teach about the various religions fail
produce well-rounded students.
(7) Our search for the truth over the Internet builds friendships that
change the world. I look forward to a happy, progressive, prosperous,
wonderful future together. Happy New Year.
RECENT NASA SHUTTLE FLIGHTS SHOW UFOs?
Videos take from Shuttle Flights, STS 48, 80, 96 and 103 show anomalies
appear to be unexplained fast moving unidentified flying objects. Sam
Sherman an expert in filming, Dr. Jack Kasher a Ph.D. in physics and
other experts have questioned NASA's forth rightness in explaining the
anomalous objects as ice crystals or camera lens smudges. Sam writes:
a longtime film producer. Recently working on documentary films, I have
cooperation from various divisions of NASA and I can tell you that this
entire subject has not been thrown away by them as being of no importance.
Furthermore, I also have D-2 Digital Video clones of the NASA Master
the STS-48 event which I have taken to a high end video studio for analysis.
I can report that our initial study reveals that the subject cannot
explained away. Physicist Dr. Jack Kasher has written a book on the
events, which has his scientific analysis and is quite compelling.
Without knowing the exact technical specs of the camera being used to
the STS-48 events, including Lens formula and specs. Video pickup CCD
tubes and other information, these multiple and different visual events
cannot be simply explained away. The STS-48 tapes show at least a dozen
more distinct events each different from one another and not commonly
other shuttle tapes. If these were normal occurrences they should been
in repeat viewing as
commonly noted visual events which could be exactly identified as what
occurrences they are, not merely explained away to conveniently drop
subject. When I state that NASA has refused to give me technical information
to be used in making a further analysis of the tapes, that is the specific
As media, we are entitled to get this information, unless it is classified,
from a US Government agency. The refusal by NASA to deal with the subject
with us clearly indicates to me that the subject may have some part
security implications, which their sister agency DOD does not wish to
media light shined on. When our questions are properly answered by NASA
will complete a fair evaluation of the tapes, regardless which way the
answers should result. The failure to deliver such information, gives
conclusion that NASA has something to hide. Thanks to Sam Sherman. Editor's

Most of their recent satellite missions to Mars are a failure, including
last two. Whoopie Goldberg, stated yesterday, "It appears the Martians
want us there."

the brightest in 122 years. Suddenly a bright blue white ball went past

NEW YORK UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECT VIDEOTAPED BY DR. CORNET
PINE BUSH -- On December 18, 1999, Dr. Bruce Cornet took Herm Fischer,
colleague from California, on a tour of the Wallkill River Valley, where
had conducted seven years of research on the Pine Bush Phenomenon. Sightings
of Anomalistic Observational Phenomena (AOP) activity in Pine Bush has
rare in the last two years. Cornet and Fischer spent several hours watching
from a farm field near the old Jewish Cemetery on Route 52. All they

several occasions in the past AOP had shown up either just before or
after he got on the highway. At 9:00 PM, Cornet began videotaping the
through the windshield of their Chevy Impala. The AOP seemed to be pacing

slowed down and stopped also. The light was to the left of and ahead

it stopped in midair. Cornet suggested that when the traffic light turned
green, he should pull over to the shoulder of the road and stop, which
Fischer did next to an industrial park. The AOP moved forward with the
and then stopped again as the car stopped. The AOP reversed direction
headed back towards them. Cornet zoomed in on the AOP as it made a rapid
approach. The AOP descended rapidly from the southeast as if simulating
conventional aircraft on approach to an airport runway, but there is
airport in the area. To their surprise the AOP descended below roof
level and behind a cluster of buildings across the road. There was no
or explosion. They drove back and checked out the area to make sure
was not a landing strip or place there where a plane could land. Bruce
states, "We finally had to accept the fact that we had been had, the
Bush Phenomenon had struck again!!" A 37 second video was shot with
Handycam video Hi 8, model CCD-TRV81.
The Pine Bush Phenomenon is not dead, just mostly dormant. It may be

information they are willing to give us. That will require the use of
latest instruments and technology available, which means that it will

challenged by the phenomenon and want to investigate it. It will require
government and/or private funding to pay for the salaries of those who
hired to work on the project. It will require the very same type of
NASA employs to send probes to Mars. It is time for a change. Anomalistic
Observational Phenomena will not go quietly into the night and disappear.
methods and tactics of ridicule, disinformation, and unavailability
funding used to date have not worked in silencing the phenomenon. They
instead made humans look stupid. Are you one of them? Let's prove that
can investigate a phenomenon which appears to challenge conventional
and do it correctly and with conviction and funding. In the past humans
studied life on this planet which is less intelligent than us. The tables
have been reversed. For the first time modern scientists are studying
intelligence equal to or greater than our own (certainly one that possesses
technology that surpasses human technology). Are we up to the challenge?
think so. Detailed analysis of the case may be seen at:

Editor's Note: I've gone hunting with Bruce and also
video taped some very strange lights.
NEW JERSEY TEARDROP UFO
WOODBRIDGE - December 10, 1999, On three separate occasions over a
three-minute span, we saw objects moving around and interweaving with
other at a high speed and they appeared to be moving upward. On a clear,
cold, windy night at 9:30 PM, two witnesses who had never seen anything
this before. The lights were so fast compared to an airliner. They also
disappeared very quickly. We have never seen anything so spectacular
Thanks to Peter Davenport, NUFORC.
LUMBERTON - On December 26, 1999, a large Flying Wing was spotted in
night sky at 8:30 PM coming from the north. It had six large brilliant
lights shining forward on each wing. Three witnesses observed the craft
flying at approximately 2,000 feet. Its size appeared much larger than
other aircraft in the night sky. It made a sweeping turn over the South
Jersey Regional Airport and headed west towards Philadelphia. There
blinking strobe or standard warning lights visible. Only a large red
was visible behind the forward lights. Thanks to Anastasia.
GEORGIA LIGHTS AND UFO
BLAIRSVILLE -- Tom Sheets, MUFON's State Director writes, "Our fellow
Carroll Watts sent me an update before leaving on a holiday trip. He
indicated that on the evening of the December 22, 1999, an object or
was spotted. It apparently remained in the area and was also observed
next morning from darkness up to 7:45 AM, first in the SW, then moving
incredibly fast to the SE. Carroll observed with binoculars and saw
green and blue lights, changing colors rapidly, shimmering, with the
erratic movement. He also observed smaller objects that were ejected
the larger, then returning after going only a short distance.
MOULTRIE -- On December 26, 1999, about 9:00 PM, I received a call from
we believe to be a reliable source. He indicated that he was right at
moment watching a bright white star like object about 35 degrees above
horizon (this is flat rural area, dark as a coal mine). He indicated
was making all sorts of erratic movements back and forth, moving in
larger than the spread hand extended AAL. He viewed it through binoculars,
but it did not reveal any detail. MUFONGAs Earle Blanton may be able
it if it returns.
TROUP COUNTY -- John Thompson reports that on Monday morning a 44-year-old
landowner and his 12-year-old son came in my office and related a dramatic
December 26, 1999, close-encounter. At 8:15 PM the father was outside
truck listening for the bay of coonhounds in a nearby patch of woods.
Standing on a hill on Dennis Smith Road he saw a large, round, white-yellow
light approach from the west-southwest. His son who was still in the
said, "Daddy, look at that plane." The father replied, "It's not a plane.
out and look!" By this time the unknown "plane," according to father
son, was at ground level and jumping a stand of pine trees to avoid
them. As the boy hurriedly exited the parked pickup, the cab and bed
of the truck came on. Immediately, the UFO did a "zigzag" maneuver.
first left (north), straight (WSW), right (south) and then left again,
arched upward. While flying in front of the witnesses, who were facing
north, the UFO had the appearance of a huge meteor. The round or egg-shape
UFO, however, had a thin, gray, "belt-like" horizontal line across its
middle. Behind the ball was a stream of "sparks" and "ashes." The combined
ball and sparks gave the craft a teardrop shape. At no time was any
heard. The UFO according to the landowner, whose property the UFO crossed
its closest, flew at speeds of fighter jets seen swooshing by in the
This would be approximately 400 knots.
Because the father's total familiarity with the land, he estimated that
UFO covered over a mile in ten seconds. At its closest, the UFO was
yards away when the cab and bed lights of the truck came on. It is the
witnesses' distinct impression that the UFO somehow sensed the lights
on and flew the zigzag pattern as a means to evade, perhaps, ground
completing its zigzag, the UFO did not continue its straight-line path
before. The father and son said they lost sight of the UFO as it flew
The white-yellow light around the craft and backend sparks "turned off."
Instead, what remained was only a faint red ball that quickly dimmed
nothing. They are unsure if the UFO accelerated out of sight or turned
to the west. In any event, the father feels the UFO was mimicking a
as a form of camouflage. This camouflage he says was turned off by
intelligent control. It can be speculated on leaving straight away that
red exhaust of the UFO's engine was only seen. The father believes that
he saw was not a true UFO; rather, it was an exotic stealth cruise missile.
If so, it can be presumed that the car size missile was partially guided
onboard, terrain hugging, radar controls. The missile would have also
infrared or laser sensors to take the evasive action it did after detecting
the nearby flashes of light. The local authorities have no reports.
father and son said there were eight airplanes flying in the area at
of their sighting. The UFO had an apparent size at 200 yards of slightly
larger than a full moon. At no time did the UFO appear high enough for
detection. After newspaper reports that the shuttle, perhaps, was mistaken
for a UFO in south Mississippi around the same time of the LaGrange
the witnesses were re-interviewed. This, they said, was "not the shuttle!"
There have been many reports of several types of UFOs in Troup and Harris
counties in the last 60 days. The reports come from multiple first and
hand sources. Some of the sightings have been low enough to illuminate
ground beneath. Weather conditions were excellent visibility, unlimited
ceiling, and temperature 34 F. with 5-10 mph northwest wind. Copyright

shooting star, except it was going much slower and we could see that
