NORRIDGEWOCK -- We were coming home from work at 2:15 AM on March 23, 2000,
when we observed a blinding white light in the sky. We turned on to Winding
Hill Road and the object was still there so we pulled over and watched the
object in the western sky. We killed the engine, then I got out of the car.
My wife stayed in the car but could see it from her window. There was a
river to the right of us and above the sandpit the object was hovering about
700 to 1000 feet away. At arm's length the object was the size of a dime.
The light was as bright as a floodlight laminating rays of light. At times
some rays seemed bluish. To my left I heard farm machinery running and
behind me I could hear the sound of tractor-trailer trucks on route 201A. No
sound was coming from the object. At about 2:27 AM the object rose very
slow, then started heading in our direction. My wife started to become very
nervous. The white light then surrounded the object. As it came closer my
wife stepped out of the car. On the bottom of the object there were three
large orangish-yellow lights. At this time the object was directly above us.
I could see a large rectangle structure with the orangish-yellow lights in
the center, around it a whitish light. My wife saw the same form but was not
sure how many lights there were. There was a slight swooshing sound, but we
were not sure it came from the craft. The object headed east and its lights
got smaller and changed to a reddish dot, which disappeared into the horizon.
My wife and I have never seen a plane or helicopter like this; there were no
blinking lights. Thanks to Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center


FUTON -- About March 5, 2000, I was out on my nightly run. At about 8:40 PM,
I was running past Lake Neantawanta in Futon, when I noticed a bright white
circular light ten feet above the water. This light stood in one spot with
no noise of aircraft or any other sort of sound. As I shielded my eyes to
look around this light I noticed an orange rectangular light on top of the
white circle. I watched this light for six minutes when it suddenly
disappeared. The light never reflected off the water. Would you know if
there have been any similar sightings? Thanks to Mark A. Martin -- Odie1014

Mark Cashman MUFON CT. State Director reports that, "On December 13, 1999,
four witnesses observed two anomalous phenomena at 3:30 PM." The observations
lasted for a total of 40 minutes. The witnesses were two adult business
owners 49 (Y) and 51 (F), and his son 12, and a woman business associate (W),
80. The observations are broken into two phases. Observation of an
estimated five contrails in sequence descending toward a ridge to the west.
These contrails became visible in each case after a bright star-like light
appeared and were the width of the light, and once reaching a specific length
retained that length without change. Each contrail displayed a "puff" about
halfway to the hill that acted as the horizon. The witnesses also thought
there was an orange flash as each light passed below the tree-line. One
contrail split into two. The witnesses believed it was possible that the
lights crashed on the hill, though they heard no sound. The contrails
dissolved, including the puffs. They observed two solid objects, gray in
color, one "bullet-shaped" with smoothly faired fins, and one spherical with
no seams or protrusions. One witness observed an apparent seam on the
bullet-shaped object. The objects, of large angular size (3 inches at two
feet), passed the witnesses at a relatively close distance, and as they moved
to the north vanished in full view. The location of the second phase was
about thirty feet to the east of the first at 41.81120 (Lat.), -72.92348
(Long). A third "phase" was the observation of a number of aircraft
identified as commercial Short Skyvans believed looking for what they had
just observed. The two adult men seemed credible and articulate but
perplexed by the event. The child offered a reasonable level of
corroboration. A more detailed analysis can be found at

ERIE -- Paula Borges writes, "A strange incident occurred on the night of
February 9, 2000, as my husband and I were driving east on Interstate 90 out
of Erie to the Cleveland Airport. We were catching a plane to our daughter's
Boot Camp graduation ceremonies. I saw in the rear view mirror a large
circle of colorful lights moving in a rotating motion. I told my husband to
look out the window, that there was something out there. As I turned around
to see it better I got a momentary glimpse of it once again and it vanished
out of sight. I was interested in knowing if there has been any other
reports of UFO's in this area. Thanks Paula Borges --Lil PeaPot


BALTIMORE - Bill Bean writes, "I would like to report my latest and quite
possibly my greatest UFO footage." I was video taping over my backyard on
March 28, 2000, and after reviewing the tape last night, I discovered a
silver disc UFO. It had a black bottom in the middle of the craft. This
object came from the west and glided along at a moderate altitude and speed
at 1:05 PM. Another or the same UFO approached from the east and headed west
at 1:07 PM. Two UFOs appear in the video from the east within a few seconds
of each other. The first UFO circles and I could actually see it rotate
counter clockwise. A second UFO appears in the frame heading toward the
first. Both of them sway from side to side, gain and then descend in
altitude. As these incredible UFO's drew closer the second reversed itself
and followed by the first headed east. The first UFO makes a fast left turn
and heads north. Both UFO's zip away very fast. This truly is fantastic
footage. God Bless Bill Bean.


LA GRANGE - On March 28, 2000, a father and son reported they saw a brilliant
green flash in the sky at about 8:30 PM. The 53 year-old father and his 30
year-old son were sitting on their front porch when they saw what they
variously described as a "neon-green" to "fluorescent green" flash. Looking
to the north the flash was seen at about 45 degrees above the horizon at an
altitude above what airliners customary fly. The son, who had uncorrected
20/20 vision in both eyes, said definitely above 15,000 feet but the father
thought it was lower. With an apparent size of "one-eighth of the moon" the
split-second flash faded to a blue dot and then flew rapidly to the north.
Their first reaction on seeing the large flash was an airborne flare had
ignited. But the son, an ex-Air Wing Marine, said this perception
immediately changed on seeing the green light fade quickly to a blue
star-like dot that moved northward at a tremendous speed. The fast-moving
blue light took only three seconds to disappear. The Marine said the apparent
speed of the UFO was too great for a satellite or any jet plane. There was
no sound. Weather conditions were 71 degrees F., little wind, with a clear
sky. Thanks to John Thompson.


FORT DEPOSIT - MUFON GA State Director Walter Sheet's witness reports, "On
March 29, 2000, I was traveling north on Highway 65 when I noticed a very
large triangular shaped craft and a smaller craft cross over the interstate
at 9:15 PM." The larger craft had three small dim lights at each end of the
triangular shape and a larger red light on one side. Both were traveling
around 50 mph. The smaller craft had many lights and looked more like a
helicopter. By the time I had reached the part of the interstate where they
had crossed, they were over the trees heading southeast. I stopped my car on
the side of the road, got out, and continued to watch these two craft
continue to travel very slowly. I heard no noise at all from these two craft.
I got back in my car and continued to travel north. About five minutes
later I saw six military helicopters cross the interstate in the opposite
direction. I knew they were helicopters by the very loud sound their blades
made. This all happened about 25 miles south of Montgomery, AL. Two years
ago this same craft was seen almost at an identical spot crossing I-65 at
extremely close range by a MUFON member and posted at ISUR's website.


COVINGTON -- Constance Griffith states on February 18, or 25, 2000, I saw a
UFO at the entrance of the Brint Spence Bridge crossing the Ohio River from
Covington, Kentucky to Cincinnati. I looked out my window at 9:30 PM and saw
a strange sight above me but was unable to stop the car, but I looked again
and it was still there. I got one more chance to glance up again before I
was under the upper deck of the bridge. I got three glances at was three
white lights in a triangle shape against a very black background. Each light
was the size of a nickel held at arm's length. The night was dark but the
lights did not seem to be like any lights that I had seen on any airplane.
They were not blinking or colored. There was something very different about
them. I have lived close to airports all my life and these lights were larger
and in a perfect triangle. Due to construction work I could not stop or look
back again, but this was very different flying object. Thanks to Constance

MADISON COUNTY -- Ken Young reports he was contacted by a witness who stated'
"I am writing to you because a few of my dads friends have reported seeing
UFOs in the field across the street where I used to live." They said, that
they have seen the same object for twelve days in a row and it happens about
3 to 4:00 AM when one of them is getting home from work! My uncle has also
reported a UFO sighting near by. These sightings are coming from a field
right behind Walnut Drive, Forest Homes, Illinois between Bethalto and Alton
a few miles north of St. Louis. I am serious and tell you the truth I'm a
little scared! Thanks to Kenny Young and Kyle


KANSAS CITY - Scott Thompson reports seeing a UFO on March 28, 2000, while
traveling on Interstate Highway 69 around a curve when he saw a UFO roughly
the shape of a quarter on edge. It was moving slow from east to west at 4:05
PM flying at about 1000 feet altitude. The object was self-illuminating or
the sun's glare was hitting it. The object was an inch long at arm's length
and appeared dark looking without a tail. He lost sight of the object as he
drove around the curve. It seemed to be shimmering a golden yellow. He lost
sight of the object for about five seconds as he rounded the curve. When he
had a view of the sky again the object had gone from sight. He had a good
view of the sky but object had disappeared. Thanks to Scott Thompson
telephone interview. Editor's Note: Video has shown that the craft
accelerate at high rate of speed that is difficult for the eye to follow.


NEW MEXICO -- Brent W. writes, Consider me highly skeptical of almost all UFO
reports, but my entire family and I have had experienced two unsettling
occasions of not losing time, but actually GAINING time." On a trip through
New Mexico, we decided to detour to Clayton Lake to see the dinosaur
footprints. The drive was a winding up and down road of 16 miles and it took
nearly 25 minutes to negotiate. On our return trip we turned back toward
town; and drove two miles to the base of a hill, went up around the hill in a
sweeping turn and suddenly found ourselves back at the highway where we had
started from. We tried to make sense of it as we continued on our journey,
but, there were no side roads to take an accidental shortcut. There was only
a tall mountain that blocked our way, but we came out at the exact spot where
we had started. Less than five minutes elapsed for the 16 miles covered and
we had noticed the different landmarks on the way back.

OKLAHOMA -- At another time, we were traveling from Tulsa to Oklahoma City on
the Turner Turnpike, a straight 88 mile toll road between the two cities. It
was after 10:00 PM and we had stopped at McDonalds for a snack. While we
were waiting, we asked our daughter what time she had since we had given her
a new watch and she was learning to tell time. We jokingly made a comment
about the accuracy of our timepieces on Central Daylight Time because the car
clock read 10:20 PM, my watch 10:18 PM and my daughter's 10:16 PM. Each were
off by two minutes. We left McDonalds and joined the turnpike on what turned
out to be the strangest night I have ever encountered. My wife became
hysterical when she saw a bright light in the sky. As a former pilot, the
light was easily identifiably to me as a commercial airliner on a standard
approach path, but her reaction was totally out of character for her. None
of us remembered very much of the trip, because we were sandwiched between
two large trucks. We came over a hill and were shocked to see the toll booth
at the halfway point. It was impossible, but there it was. We had traveled
42 miles in an elapsed time of 16 minutes. We all checked the clocks and
watches and the results were shocking. We had averaged 157.5 mph, which is
of course impossible for our car and the speed limit of 75mph. We talked
about this at length remembering the previous Clayton Lake anomaly. The last
46 miles was uneventful and we arrived home ahead of the expected time by
nearly 20 minutes. We used a quarter tank of gas less than the drive should
have taken. Two experiences with one of them timed by three different
timepieces. Somehow we either gained time or distance (a hypothetical
possibility based on the gas consumption). We are highly skeptical people
but perplexed! Thanks to Brent W.
[email protected]. Editor's Note:
I have investigated several cases where people have traveled across states in
a matter of minutes. They also had witnesses to there location prior to
departure and after arrival. They were traveling by car and the only
possible explanation was that they had been transported by aircraft between
the two locations at several hundred miles per hour. Both sets of witnesses
later remembered being aboard a UFO.


PORTLAND - BB Smith writes, "I recently experienced an event that I've yet to
explain. It involves a possible UFO sighting that I witnessed on Thursday,
March 23, 2000, around 12 noon, near Beaverton/Portland area on a fairly well
traveled two lane road that curves through heavy trees and low elevation
mountains. I'm a private pilot and was just returning from the Scappoose
airport after a one hour flight. I was driving my vehicle at the time of the
sighting. My question is who can I write to that might be of assistance to
me in sorting out my experience. Thanks to BB Smith

There have recently been a large number of orange UFO reports in Sweden. A
company called "Planet-Pluto" sells UFO balloons that are toys sold to fly up
to 1.000 meters. They are self illuminated and provide an orange glow from
the ground. They are being sold as toys through the mail and can be
purchased and flown anywhere in the world. Slow moving orange objects moving
with the wind are likely to be these toys. Sometimes they are sent aloft
with several even dozens in formation. Thanks to Clas Svahn UFO-Sweden


EVINGTON, LEICESTER -- We were walking back from a nightclub on March 20,
2000, at 3:00 AM when we noticed that there were two triangular objects in
the sky. At first we passed them off as planes but then the objects started
shifting from one point in the sky to another at a phenomenal pace. They
were intercrossing between each other. They were moving like that for about
ten minutes. Then suddenly there was a flash of light and then they were
gone. They moved around the sky at phenomenal speeds. We could not really
see what color they were because all we could see was triangular lights on
the objects


Aviation writer Bill Rose writes, "I was responsible for the placing the
pictures of Project Y with the London Sunday Times and I provided some of the
background research. However, you should bear in mind that this feature was
written by a member of the newspaper's staff and it was aimed at a general
readership, so inevitably, some of technical and historical details were left
out. John Frost and his Special Projects Group designed the Project Y Manta
aircraft to meet a Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) specification and the
configuration shown in the pictures evolved from earlier VTOL disc shaped
design, which proved too complex to build. Whether or not Frost was
influenced by German wartime studies remains a topic of some debate and while
this is a distinct possibility, there is still no absolute proof. As you
correctly suggested, the Project Y design evolved into the later Silver Bug
flying discs which the USAF sponsored. The Project Y Manta certainly looked
unusual, but it was just the product of advanced engineering studies and had
absolutely nothing to do with aliens, Roswell, spaceships or UFO sightings in
Arizona during the late 1940s. There is much more of this fascinating story
to be told and you can expect further revelations during the coming months.
Many eyewitnesses claim to have seen panels and struts with strange
hieroglyphics or symbols. If anyone was really serious about finding out
about an alien Roswell crash, they would pin down the real crash site and
arrange for a series of geochemical surveys to be undertaken. I was assured
by a couple of professionals that even the most careful site cleanup would
fail to remove all traces of extraterrestrial material -- if it were present.
While I don't entirely rule out an alien crash, I personally consider it
highly unlikely and my money still goes on a crashed high-tech spyplane or
just possibly a B-29 with a nuke onboard. I believe there are aliens out
there, but visitation to our planet is another matter. I'd like nothing
better than proof that extraterrestrials are operating within our
environment, but so far, I've seen none. That's not to say I have a closed
mind! Thanks to Bill Rose.


Blessed Pipe Man Zephier writes the Roswell craft symbols you've described,
like a 'J' is a symbol that represents the Iktomi-Spider, Holy Mother and the
Buffalo Nation. The reason there is a trinity of representation is because
of how Creator has delegated responsibilities to All in the Universe. First,
the Earth and the help needed on ground base, secondly, galactic influence of
Divine Mother to maintain a balance in this region of the Universe, and
thirdly, there is the Ascended Masters, those who sit within the I AM
presence-Council of Twelve. There is a Spiritual Hierarchy. The symbol that
looks like 'teepees' as you have described, represents the Elements of
Creation or what we call Spiritual Web of the Universe, Grandmother Turtle,
Twin Flames and Singing Spider. This particular symbol deals with Manifest
Realm: Elohi and Lyra. These symbols have a great profound interpretation.
This is the best I can do for you at this time, but understand Native
Americans have much to say about symbols as this is a part of our heritage.
There is much more that can be learned from these symbols. Thanks to Blessed
Pipe Man Zephier,
[email protected]
Editor's Note: -- The symbols described by eyewitnesses and in the debris
seem to be similar. Portions of the inside of the craft held these symbols
that may be Native American. I spoke with Tom Carey to obtain more
information from Tex on his participating in the recovery of an alien craft
near Roswell. Tex says that at least one of the pieces of metal had writing
on it "like hieroglyphics or numbers". When pressed further, he stated that
it looked 'like hieroglyphics from Mexico or something like that." Meaning
ancient Indian like Aztec or Inca - cultures. He said, there was the "awful
smell of death" in the vicinity of the wreck. Thanks to Tom Carey.


April 6, 2000, three planets and the thin crescent Moon are going to put on a
memorable sky show when the quartet converge inside a circle just 9 degrees
across. To admire the display, simply go outside after dinner on April 6 and
look toward the southwest sky. Around 8:00 PM local daylight savings time
the slender crescent moon will be easy to spot about 30 degrees above the
horizon. The brightest nearby "star" will be Jupiter. At magnitude -2.1,
the giant planet is 8 times brighter than Saturn, which glows pale yellow
less than 3 degrees west of the Moon. Mars will lie a scant one degree north
of Jupiter. The red planet (magnitude 1.4) will be about 3 times fainter
than Saturn (magnitude 0.3). Jupiter, Mars, and Saturn will appear to be even
closer together on April 15 when the three will fit inside a circle less than
5 degrees across. That's the most compact grouping of any 3 planets for the
entire year. Nevertheless, the display on April 6 will be more beautiful
thanks to the delicate crescent Moon as it passes by the trio. But wait,
there's even more: Cradled in the arms of the crescent Moon will appear the
ghostly outline of the full Moon, a dim glow that astronomers call


VANCOUVER -- Paul Anderson reports that award-winning investigative
journalist William Thomas will present on April 8, an alarming and
provocative findings from his eight-year investigation into the current
pandemic of auto-immune and related ailments in a feature presentation
entitled 'What's Wrong with Our Skies?' at the Pacific Space Centre / H. R.
MacMillan Planetarium. In his presentation, Thomas will reveal how millions
of Canadian, American and British citizens have been subjected to "open air"
biowarfare experiments without their knowledge or consent. He will show
recent photographs and videos of unmarked tanker-type aircraft flying in
formation spraying "chemtrail" plumes in complex 'X and grid patterns' in the
skies over many Canadian, American and European areas. Is this spraying
biowarfare experimentation? Covert inoculations against terrorist attack or
desperate attempts at atmospheric remediation? Assigned to this story by the
Environmental News Service in January 1999, Thomas will present the interim
results of his ongoing investigation into this aerial phenomenon widely
reported over many regions in Canada, the US and Europe since the fall of
1998. Referencing two US congressional investigations, as well as recently
released British Ministry of Defence documents, Thomas contends that many
cases of "influenza-like illness", pneumonia and related symptoms recorded at
epidemic levels across much of North America and England over the past two
years are not the "flu". Instead, the BC-based journalist will present
evidence showing that many emergency room patients suddenly stricken by acute
upper-respiratory distress and / or related heart disease and auto-immune
breakdown have likely been infected by manmade pathogens created in
bioweapons laboratories. Calling himself "a reluctant expert" in
environmental and biological warfare, the author of the extensively
documented books SCORCHED EARTH and BRINGING THE WAR HOME was the first
Canadian journalist to break the story of Gulf War Illness after his own
health was ravaged in Kuwait. Thomas will trace the sudden emergence of
"stealth viruses," prion diseases, and auto-immune ailments following decades
of biowarfare experimentation rivaling the atom bomb's "Manhattan Project".
Thanks to Paul Anderson.

Editor's Note: I have no idea about the validity of these findings. Its
amazing to me that the news media is not interested in their own health and
fails to cover the frequent spraying.
