NEW YORK CYLINDER UFO
MELVILLE, LONG ISLAND -- On June 15, 2000, the witness saw a black
shaped UFO while sitting at his desk looking out his office window
PM. The witness stated, "I thought it might be a helicopter but it
big to be a helicopter." At first it hovered, then it began to travel
east to northeast direction extremely slow towards New York City.
I kept my
eye on it for at least a minute. I was looking for wings or chopper
but it had neither. It seemed to go in and out of focus. The oddest
about this object is that I could see the atmosphere spinning around

side of the building, but I could no longer locate it. It definitely
an airplane or helicopter. I see them out my office window every day,
know what they look like even from a distance. This object looked
like that. After I saw the sighting, I had a feeling that helicopters
circle my house as soon as I got home. Within one hour of arriving
house, a helicopter came and circled my house twice then headed north.
Thanks to Debbie.
NEW YORK STRANGE LIGHTS
SOUTHAMPTON, LONG ISLAND -- Jim Bouck MUFON State Director reports
9:00 PM on July 6, 2000, a witness was standing next to his upstairs
window when he observed a bright light outside. The light was about
miles away, and about the size of a golf ball. Behind the clouds was
smaller light kind of going around it. There was no noise and it was
moving. The witness states, "I watched it for several minutes, and

towards us. They were moving fast and sounded like planes. When they

away to be

NORTH DAKOTA UFO BUZZES B-52 AND MISSILES
MINOT AIR FORCE BASE - In Captain Kevin Randle's new book Scientific
he reports on a Project Blue Book case dated October 24, 1968, when
crews, control personnel and maintenance personnel observed a UFO
vicinity of the base. The following is the tape between the air controllers
and the B-52 crew with call sign JAG Three one.
At 0330 hours: The controllers received the information that there
was a UFO

was on a calibration check and requests a clearance from radar personnel.

"Roger, understand you did see something on your left side." "We had

and then, the controller asked, "Affirmative. I was wondering how
did you see that UFO?"
"He was about one and a half miles off our left wing at 35 miles when
started in and stayed with us 'til about 10."
"I wonder if that could have been your radio troubles?"
"I don't know.... But that's exactly when they started. "At 0413,

Editors Note: The case in my estimation was never investigated properly.
Project Blue Book personnel never sent a representative and the case
essentially written off despite the interest of several Strategic
generals including 15th Air Force's Major General Nichols. The sighting
officially explained by on November 13, by Lt. Col. Hector Quintanilla
wrote, "The following conclusions have been reached after a thorough

sightings appear to be of the star Sirius and the B-52, which was
the area. The B-52 radar contact and the temporary loss of the UHF
transmission could be attributed to a plasma similar to ball lightning.
air visual from the B-52 could be the star Vega, which was on the
the time, or it could be a light on the ground, or possibly a plasma.
further investigation by the Foreign Technology Division is contemplated.
This is a classic Blue Book case where dozens of Air Force personnel
B-52s and stars nightly have their testimony doubted. They know when
seen a UFO. In this case the scientists doing the Condon report agreed
this was a real UFO. The apparent damage to the missile site and disruption
of B-52 radio transmissions was in my opinion a threat to primary
offensive systems and should not have been trivialized. The records
for themselves. This article was taken from Scientific Ufology written
Captain Kevin D. Randle USAFR. I consider this his finest book and
its reading. This case like thousands of others are explained away
simple mundane explanation that can be found. Yet many cases involve
tampering of key government weapon systems. It appears Quintanilla
did not care or had instructions to write off most of the sightings
available excuse. I wonder why the reports were white washed, while
Force's scientific advisor Alan Hynek was coming to the opposite conclusion
that, UFOs were real?
KILLEEN -- I did see a UFO for the first time in my life on April
at 9:38 PM. There were many lights and no noise at all. They were

seconds and then I could no longer see it. It reminded me of a large

WYOMING SAUCER-SHAPED UFO
Rawlins -- On June 19, 2000, a saucer-shaped with a dome on top was
while traveling west on Interstate 80 at 7:44 PM. The craft was brown
hovering high above the ground beneath low rain clouds. The craft
rapidly shot almost straight up like a backward letter 'J' into the
and disappeared west of Rawlins in hilly terrain. The weather was
cloudy. The observer is a twelve-year old boy traveling with his family
vacation. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director of NUFORC www.ufocenter.com.
CANADA HOVERING FLYING TRIANGLE
HALTON, ONTARIO -- On May 13, 2000, I was driving home during a thunderstorm
and noticed an odd craft flying slowly above a 100 feet high escarpment

lights on the bottom. At first I thought it was a B-2 stealth bomber,
its' fuselage and cockpit were extended past the wings. The wings
and delta shaped, and the front resembled that of a Concord. It may
been flat in height. My conclusion is that it was man made like a
observing craft. The escarpment eliminates chances of a tornado occurring
within a fairly large radius of area. I found a similar report of
aircraft sighting over Wood Dale, Illinois on April 25, 2000. You
can use my
story but I wish to remain anonymous. Thanks to Bob.

LIFE ON MARS
Carl Sagan was one of scientists most upset when the Viking Lander
rule out life on Mars. Many NASA scientists had come to the conclusion
was no life on Mars mainly because of cold temperatures and its apparent
of liquid water. Despite great controversy data was interpreted to
presence of life on Mars.
Carl Sagan wrote, "Most of the present evidence suggesting life on
Mars is of
a different character." Each year, as the Martian ice caps recede
the poles, sizable quantities of water vapor are released into the
atmosphere. The Martian atmospheric circulation is apparently adequate
transport this water vapor across the equator, so that the water released

cap in the opposite hemisphere. The radius of Mars, R is 3380 km.
circumference of Mars is 2 (R so the distance from pole to pole is
takes half a Martian year for the water vapor to travel from pole
to pole, or
about 344 days. The average rate at which the water vapor travels
to pole is about 30 km a day. At the same time that the water vapor
transported through the atmosphere, a remarkable phenomenon, known
wave of darkening, occurs on the surface. The dark areas become
progressively darker, and their contrast with the unchanging bright
increases. This occurs in a wavelike movement, the from of the darkening
wave progressing from the vaporizing polar cap towards and across
equator, and into the opposite hemisphere. Half a Marian year later,
wave of darkening proceeds in the opposite direction. The wave of

repeatedly photographed, and quantitatively measured on telescopes
The wave of darkening proceeds according to recent measurement by
astronomer J. Focas of the Athens Observatory, at an average rate
of 35 km
per day, close enough to the presumed rate of transport of water vapor
atmosphere to suggest that the phenomenon are connected. It is this
contrast enhancement which is the source of reports of seasonal color
on Mars. (Snip) There is an alternative explanation of the wave of

Shklovskii, Dell Publishing 1966.
Last week, Edward Carpenter of the State University of New York at
Brook said, "Scientists have detected hardy microbes that thrive in
conditions of ultraviolet radiation, cold, scarcity of liquid water
darkness at the South Pole." ` `Bacteria in South Pole snow, was
metabolically active and synthesizing DNA and protein at local ambient
temperatures of 10.4 degrees to 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 12 to
Celsius). These conditions are not too different from those on Mars.
An expert in circadian biology, Joseph Miller has taken special interest
one of three Viking Lander biology investigations conducted on Mars
Called the Labeled Release experiment, a sample of Martian soil was
with a nutrient "soup" containing radioactive carbon-14. If living
were in the soil sample, they would digest the radioactively labeled
nutrients, then give off gases indicating the presence of life metabolizing
the nutrient. On Mars, the Viking assay detected a surge in the
radioactivity of released gases. "Every organism that we know of on
has a circadian rhythm. It's reasonable to think this holds true for
microbes on Mars." Those results remain not only puzzling, but controversial
as well. The investigator behind the experiment, Gilbert Levin, President
Biospherics Inc., Beltsville, Md., has long held that the gas releases
living microorganisms were found. Other experts counter that a nonbiological
response was seen. But in pouring over published results from that
experiment, Miller did a double take. He saw evidence of Martian life
different way. "There's a rhythm in the release of radioactive-labeled
in that experiment," Miller said. "There might have been an organism
producing methane or carbon dioxide. But the real kicker is the existence
a circadian rhythm in that data. Every organism that we know of on
a circadian rhythm. It's reasonable to think this holds true for any
microbes on Mars," he said.
Editor's Note: It is my opinion that there has been a plan to delay
disclosure of life on Mars for as long as possible, because once the
realizes there is life on Mars the hundreds of UFO sightings per month
on much greater significance. Every few years Mars is hit with tremendous
windstorms with 200 mph winds that raise voluminous dust clouds and
the surface. When these winds subside, there is a noticeable greening
planet. This greening according to scientists is actually greenish
making it only appear the planet has plant life or microorganisms
lichen. This greening is called false foliage. If those clouds contain
water and the temperatures increased the greening may real. During
day on Mars, the temperature reaches a balmy 68-Fahrenheit. Up until
weeks ago, we were told there was little or no water and there was
no life on
Mars based on the Viking Lander's findings. I suggest the results
Viking Lander experiments were inaccurate due to preconceived notions
would be found. Even at the time, there was a great deal of controversy
regarding the findings. Because I had chased and seen first hand UFOs
they exist, I had seen Air Force documents that state that within
system Mars had the best chance for life. Most newspapers are losing
readership while UFO Internet sights, UFO radio shows, are increasing
circulation. Its only a matter of time before the most respected media
outlets will start to realize UFOs sell newspapers and gain an audience.
