SPACE WATCHERS ALERT -- On October 30, 2000, a large near earth asteroid
(NEA) 600 meters in size came close enough to the Earth to be named a 'near
miss.' The asteroid passed the Earth without prior warning from NASA, whose
astronomers have now named it Toutatis. If the asteroid it hit the Earth it
could have resulted in a major catastrophe.

There should be a brilliant display of Leonid meteor showers on November 17,
and 18th between local midnight and dawn. There could be a modest outburst
of Leonids this year with brief flurries of shooting stars that should be
seen over most parts of the Earth. Three streams of the debris storm should
pass near our Moon. On November 17, around 0500 UT the Moon will pass
approximately four Earth-diameters from the center of a dust trail left
behind by comet Tempel-Tuttle in 1932," says David Asher of the Armagh
Observatory, an expert on Leonid debris filaments. "The Moon will be
considerably closer to the trail than Earth," raising the possibility of
vigorous Leonid activity there. When Leonid meteoroids rain down on the
airless Moon, they won't cause "shooting stars" as they do on our planet.
There's no atmosphere on the Moon where cosmic debris particles can
incinerate as fiery streaks of light. Lunar Leonids will simply hit the
surface at 140,000 mph. Some larger impacts may be seen from Earth with
telescopes. Last year surprised Moon-watchers captured video footage of at
least six exploding Leonid meteorites while the Moon passed through comet
Tempel-Tuttle debris stream. Various lights and what appear to be UFOs
traveling across the surface of the Moon are more common than generally

Astronomers have also discovered the Moon has a tail made of sodium that
extends behind as it moves through space. Sensitive cameras that can detect
sunlight scattered from as few as 5 sodium atoms per cubic centimeter can
pick up the tail. The Lenoids are expected to add dust to the tail after
impacts by the meteorites.


Jan Lamprecht writes, "For decades many people have been looking for evidence
of advanced Alien life in space -- hopefully nearby. I was watching the
BBC's "Earth" Series of geology program that claimed there is a big mystery
surrounding the Moon's existence and how it got here. The odds against
random capture of the Moon are billions if not trillions to one. This has
led some people to suggest that the Moon was STEERED into orbit by someone.
Amazingly too, the angular diameter of the Moon, as seen from the Earth
matches that of the Sun, as seen from the Earth almost exactly thereby giving
rise to total eclipses. In my book "Hollow Planets," I made the point that
maybe our view of the universe is back-to-front or inside out. What if, our
whole view of the universe is SKEWED by the fact that we live on the OUTSIDE
of a planet? Thus, we think (naturally), that all life forms should exist on
the outside of planets and that is where we go to look. We never stop to
think that maybe we are NOT THE NORM! Our whole thinking is conditioned
around the concept that we are THE NORM. Logic dictates that this is the
most likely possibility. Yet, what if our views are wrong? For example,
life on the outside of planets is actually a dangerous business. Think about
it. Living on the OUTSIDE of a moving object is not a good idea. It is
like someone driving a car at breakneck speed along a highway with you
sitting on the hood! That is crazy isn't it! And yet, living on the outside
of a planet is no crazier. There is ample evidence that life here is
dangerous. Meteors are the main danger. Even tiny meteors can decimate life
on the outside. And meteors are a real danger. Lots of them abound and it
is only a matter of time before they strike us. The surfaces of neighboring
worlds are pockmarked with craters caused by them. Even a single strike
could decimate the world.

There is, I believe, one argument that is FRIGHTENING in its implications in
showing that our position here upon the Earth is completely UNNATURAL and
therefore something that has been planned and devised by a higher
intelligence. It is this!. In the BBC's Earth series, they ended on a
rather strange note. They mentioned the calculations done by a French
scientist. He wrote a computer program to calculate the effects of planets
and the Moon on the rotation of the Earth. He found that when he factored in
the presence of the Moon, that the Earth wobbled slowly around its axis
(precession) over a period of 26,000 years. Then, he did a fascinating
thing. He removed the Moon from the equation. His model then showed that
the Earth, like all other planets without large moons like ours, would then
become UNSTABLE. Over a long period the Earth would flip this way and then
that, and even lie on its side like Uranus does. And that was when it all
struck home.

If the Earth were a "normal planet" and were that unstable, it would destroy
all the life on its surface. If the Earth wobbled this way and then that
way, it would cause tremendous harm to all the things living on its surface.
Instead, the presence of the Moon, and the Moon alone, makes the Earth a much
more stable place. So, going back to the fact that the Moon must have been
steered here, it would seem that maybe, those who steered it here did so with
the purpose of using it to stabilize this planet's rotation. Could it be,
that whoever put the Moon here ALSO put US here? And that whoever did this
must therefore have intelligence so great, and a science so great that it
boggles the mind. All this suggests to me that the presence of the Moon is
definitely NO ACCIDENT, and that the presence of the Moon must therefore be
linked to the presence of life on the outside of the planet - and that it is
an aid to the existence of life here. Surely, this proves that there is an
incredible intelligence out there with capabilities, which stun our little
minds! Thanks to: Jan Lamprecht and Jeff Rense.

Editors Note: Genesis 1 tells us: "Then God said, "Let there be bright
lights in the sky to give light to the earth and to identify the day and the
night; they bring about the seasons on the earth, and mark the days and
years" And God made two great lights, the greater light to rule the day, and
the lesser light to rule the night." Zecharia Sitchin told me that Genesis
is true and a summation of Sumerian writings. We must consider that our
alien visitors may have placed the Moon in orbit around the Earth. Further
it may be normal to live underground on planets where meteors are numerous.


WESTBURY, LONG ISLAND -- October 20, 2000, my wife and I are educated
professionals who were driving northbound on the Wantagh Parkway in Nassau
County at 8:45 PM. As we approached Hempstead Turnpike I noticed a glowing
disc in a clear sky. I must admit it appeared to be very similar to those I
have seen on TV documentaries about UFO's. There was a light emitting from
the top downward to create the shape of the saucer. The color of the light
was whitish blue. I pointed it out to my wife who also had the same reaction
of awe as I did. I noticed that it moved toward the east, then slightly
north, then ultimately westbound until we lost it behind some trees. Because
of its appearance and movement, we knew it could not have been a plane,
helicopter or even a blimp. I assumed it would be clearly seen by thousands.
Thanks to Peter Davenport Director of NUFORC-

LONG ISLAND -- Betty LaRosa writes that her friend who is quite shy, tells
her of frequent sightings of triangle shaped objects which fly over just
before dawn. She lives on the South Shore of Long Island near the inland
waters before entering the Atlantic Ocean. She says they are always
traveling in a southerly or southwesterly direction. They are barely
visible, but their forms appear to be triangular with white lights on two
sides and a red light in the center of the craft. They make no sound, and
appear to travel in groups of three to five craft. Thanks to Betty LaRosa
Editor's Note: We have frequent reports of unidentified craft over Long
Island so if your in the area keep looking up.


SAXTON -- Bob Loughry reported watching the object on November 1, 2000, after
dark for about twenty minutes. Bob reported that the unusual object was
watched by several neighbors using binoculars, and also by Saxton Borough
police officer and also an officer from neighboring Liberty Township. "I
went outside on the front porch about 7:30 PM and saw a bright object in the
sky. I called several neighbors, and also "911" which is why several police
officers stopped to look. It was glowing white and as viewed from the porch,
about the size of a quarter to a half dollar. "The object was probably. He
was looking in the direction of E. Eichelberger and Son store, and the object
as big as a car was hovering in the sky to the right of the store. It was
between 250 and 1,000 feet in the air. It gradually descended and may have
landed on Abbott's Ridge, for at that point the lights went out. "Both
police officers said they didn't know what it was, except a UFO. Several
Stonerstown residents reported seeing a similar object on October 25, after
dark. It was more distant than the one seen Oct. 28, and they said it made
erratic maneuvers in the sky, the kind that a conventional aircraft could not
make. Thanks to Jon Baughman

READING -- On October 31, 2000, a witness whose home overlooks a valley
noticed a Moon size white light moving slowly across the valley. He was able
to get his father who also witnessed the unusual object. It was flying at
low altitude over the valley for about a half hour. The next night the
object also appeared but flew off to the west.


DAYTON - Scientist Robert Collins says, "Tonight at 9:30 PM I stepped out
side to look at the night sky which I do often when it's clear. I noticed an
aircraft flying west close to the Dayton airport: I'm 5 minutes away from the
airport here: Something struck me about this aircraft because it's position
lights didn't look right: Besides the normal flashing red and green there
were two steady orange looking lights on both wings. I've never seen this
type of light formation before. I got my binoculars out and sure enough this
aircraft was spraying a thick trail of what has been video taped and seen
before. I didn't think this was interesting and I didn't think it was
beautiful . was damn mad ! That Chemtrail is now spreading itself out so
it looks like a typical cirrus cloud right over the top of me. Seeing is
believing ! Thanks to: Robert Collins

CHALLIS -- The Challis Messenger by Anna Means reports, "Many rational
people believe we are not alone in this universe. Three hunters in an
unspecified location near Challis learned for themselves on the night of
September 27 that this theory may hold water. The National Institute for the
Discovery Science (NIDS) e-mailed the Messenger two weeks ago asking for help
locating three individuals who reported an "anomalous encounter" in these
environs. The report revealed that one individual spotted a dark triangular
object floating silently above him while he was standing by his pickup. The
hunter said he and his three buddies were in a dry camp, so alcohol couldn't
be blamed for what he and two of the others saw. The man indicated that as
he approached his pickup at about 9:45 PM, he "got a feeling of a thick,
heavy blanket above me and chills down my spine." He said he shined his
flashlight on the "dark triangular object floating directly above us and our
camp trailer." The man fell into profane disbelief and then called out for
his buddies to come see for themselves. He said he could see rounded dark
edges and a flat bottom that had a texture like suede leather and was colored
gold-gray. He said that after he shined his light on the object it throttled
up with a deep low sound of intense power and floated straight up and then
forward up a steep canyon moving like a hockey puck sliding on ice.

Two other party members grabbed their binoculars to check it out until it
moved out of sight. The account said that as the object throttled up, three
lights, one on each corner of the triangle, came on. Each light was about 10
feet in diameter and glowed like a dim dome light. Another light in the
center was described as being 20 feet in diameter, protruding below the
bottom of the object about eight feet, was deep red and pulsed once a second.
The outline of the entire object had a light halo around it. The shape,
wrote the hunter, was a perfect triangle with radius corners and radius
edges. "There was no smell, no feeling of blowing, prop wash or thrust of
any sort." Thanks to Gerry at Far Shores and NIDS


ONSTED IRISH HILLS -- Todd Lemire says between 6:45 and 7:00 PM while out
trick-or-treating with my husband, our seven year old son, a friend and her
ten year old son, "I looked up and saw this greenish-white light cruising
west at an incredible speed." The object was about 300 feet high and made
absolutely no sound. I told the others to look up. We were awestruck! As
this pulsing light that never lost its glow passed before us. A part seemed
to disengage itself and fall to the east and disappear. It was similar to
when the Challenger explosion in 1987. My husband and I both said to each
other, right then. "That was no falling star!" My husband, and I are both
star-gazers. There was absolutely no arc moving parallel with the earth
with no trail. It moved two to three hundred miles per hour at a steady
consistent speed. The sighting was reported to the police. A friend at work
also saw a UFO we come up with the conclusion that there had to be two or
more. The time of her sighting was closer to 7:00 PM and it was more white
in color. I was talking with one of the farmers in the area and said his son
and he were outside working around 7:00 PM, when his son asked him, "Did you
see that?" The farmer said he'd only seen a greenish glow as he had his head
faced toward the ground. His son told him that he had just seen a light pass
directly overhead their barn." Thanks to Todd Lemire

SOUTH WEST, ND --- David Fugere reports, "I had a sighting similar to the
Woodlands October 26, sighting at 9:00 PM. I saw the formation of
circular white lights on the bottom of the craft but wouldn't call them
lights in the usual way of thinking about lights. I can best describe these
lights by a glow in the dark toy. If you take one of these toys and light it
up good and then put it in a dark room and let it dim down for a while you
got the lighting that I saw. I'd be curious to know if this person could
relate to that as I'm quite convinced we saw the same thing. My craft too
had six lights on each side, but did not line up perfectly with the ones on
the other side. Perhaps there was a light missing on one side. My sighting
definitely had one light at the point and then tapered down on each side
forming a perfect 'V' with both lights at the end. Each was side lit up,
joining some in the back. I was looking straight up when it popped up over
my house. I doubt if it was any higher than 300 feet.
I could not make out any solid structure in-between the lights even when I
got my binoculars on them. It flew south west over our town for at least 15
seconds. I've also seen discs that have displayed the exact same type of
lighting. The lights and the shape match. Thanks to Dave Fugere:

DEMING -- On Thursday, October 26, 2000, Todd Hall "was driving west on
Interstate Highway I-10 at 8:10 PM when he watched an object hovering over a
mountain. As I descended the mountain, I saw the object was hovering over
the town of Deming. Todd noticed that it changed shape from time to time.
Most of the time, the object kept a short cylinder shape and periodically
changed to a wedge shape. Todd watched the object for about 30 minutes.
Todd said, "At one point, I even pulled to the side of the road so as to pay
more attention to the thing." "After about 30 minutes, the object changed to
a flat shape and moved up vertically for about three seconds and then just
vanished." Todd described the UFO as "dark in color with a slight metallic
look at an altitude of 1,000 to 2,000 feet. Object stayed fairly stationary,
moving slightly to the west." Thanks to Joe Trainor Editor of UFO Roundup

San Francisco -- Field investigator Chris Altman reports that October 21,
2000, a United Airlines pilot that does not want his name released at this
point. The plane is a 737 Boeing aircraft that was coming into San Francisco
at about 3:00 PM. The pilot as well as twenty other witnesses all stated
that they saw a large cylindrical object pace the plane for about 12 minutes.
The plane was about 35 miles out of San Francisco when the pilot observed a
large object about 1 mile away on the port side of the plan. The plane was
at about 15,000 feet at the time of the sighting. The object was 45 degrees
low on the port side. It was estimated to be about 300 feet long, very dark
in color, and clearly had no windows on it. After about 10 minutes of being
paced, the object rose very rapidly to a point where it was about 2000 feet
over them. Then after 2 more minutes it just simply shot up and out of
sight. The Air Traffic Control stated to him that they had nothing on radar
other than the 737. Other witnesses are being contacted, as someone took
photos and video tape of the object. The pilot also told me that he noticed
that many instruments fluctuated when the craft rose by them. Thanks to
Chris Altman.

LAKE COUNTY -- David Shields and I just wanted to tell a short story related
to triangles. This is a rural area, and in the early 1970s, my brother and
several of his friends and many residents observed a huge black triangle over
this area for about four days. They described this black craft as being
about 100 feet across with lights on the three corners. My brother and his
friends said it just seemed to silently float along at 40 mph just above the
trees. They often fly on moonless nights. Just thought that you might be
interested in the triangles not being a new thing, but maybe a return.
Thanks to David Shields


MONTREAL -- B. J. Callaghan a skeptic writes I was sitting in my living room
watching TV on October 13, 2000, between 6:00 and 7:00 PM. Four different
times, about 15 minutes apart a large white ball streaked across our picture
window and sky. My window is quite large, taking up the entire wall. The
fireballs were about the size of a basketball, bright white and moved
extremely fast, crossing my window in a second. This happened four times in
an hour and may have been meteors . Thanks to B J Callaghan

Nick Balaskas writes, "My friend Michael DeRobertis and the F-15 pilot who
had the experience with a UFO don't have any good explanations for this
strange encounter. Michael allowed me to share this UFO incident with you.
Michael writes, "The wingman was flying an F-15 single-seat fighter on a
mockup aerial combat mission of two planes." His leader was flying a
two-seater F-15. They were entering downwind for landing at about noontime,
and he was following his leader about a mile back at 2500 feet at 250 knots.
It was a sunny day, no clouds, and visibility unlimited. When he was looking
at his leader, he saw a bright yellow spot on the ground or near the ground.
The light then started to rise, apparently toward the leader. Before he had
a chance to warn him, he realized it was moving towards him. When it got
close, it passed from the front window to the side left window, and passed a
few hundred meters away (very close in aviation terms).

It then continued to "fly continuously in the opposite direction while
climbing. The object was round, with bright yellow circle of lights on top.
Its surface was metal-like, with silver-platinum color. It left no trails or
fumes behind. He estimated that it was doing some 300 knots when it passed
him. The whole thing lasted 15 to 20 seconds. It did not look like any known
aircraft or a missile. He was so stunned, that he did nothing. As a trained
and veteran fighter pilot, he admits that he should have retracted his gear,
gone to afterburners, and chased the son-of-a-bitch! But he admits that he
was shocked to his bones. When he reached debriefings, he talked to his
leader. The guy saw nothing -- he was already preparing for landing and
watched the runway on his right. However, the back-seat guy DID see
something, but only that some yellow lights passed them on the left and
below. The next thing he did, was to call his friend from the Air Force, and
ask him if he has any explanation. The reply was, "We don't have budget for
those things but I don't believe it was any secret aircraft. He says that
he cannot explain what he saw. Thanks to Michael De Robertis,

NEWCASTLE -- Gerry @ Far Shores reports investigators remain baffled after
more sightings emerged today of an unidentified flying object over Wearside
on October 31, 2000. The five-foot pear-shaped piece of silver metal was
first spotted hurtling towards the ground by Jenny Cook in Hendon on Tuesday
morning. Police launched an inquiry following the report by the 18-year-old
Sunderland University student but, despite a ground search of the area,
failed to find any trace of the object. The Echo has now learnt that
officials at Newcastle Airport were alerted after a similar sighting three
hours later above Penshaw. Ron Atwill spotted a mysterious five-foot long
gray object narrowly miss a passenger jet as it made its descent towards
Newcastle Airport. Mr. Atwill, a retired prison service worker, saw the
object at 11:45 AM. He said, "I was looking up as a passenger jet was flying
quite low in the distance and I saw this thing almost hit it. I rang the
airport to see if they might have spotted it. It was about 20 feet away from
the plane. It was a silvery gray and very flat, pear shaped and about four
to five feet long. Detective Inspector John Watts, of Sunderland City Center
Police, said: "We had a report of a strange object in the skies about the
size of a small car. Thanks to Gerry at

Jack Petersen writes, "I am in the middle of going over the one and only UFO
cattle mutilation movie ever made called "ENDANGERED SPECIES" In it I find
almost every single aspect you mentioned in last weeks Filer's Files #44
dated 11/7/00. This amazing movie starring JoBeth Williams and Robert Urich
was produced way back in 1982. You should go rent it at the local video
store if it hasn't been removed by some agency to cover-up the truth long
ago. I read a small film magazine report at that time making a short comment
on how the government was highly angered about the content of this film.
They finally had it removed from general circulation at the time. I was
lucky to find it several years ago. Thanks to Jack Peterson

Richard Buchli writes, "If the abductions are real, and they are really
growing the babies in artificial media, is it not possible that all of this
missing blood is in some way being used as part of the nutrients in the
supporting fluids?" What do you think of that idea? Thanks to Richard

Harv Howard writes, Last week you had two very revealing areas of real news!
I would suggest that the findings of the meteoric specimens is vastly
important to giving us some insight into the manner of power for the craft.
Perhaps they are dislodged as a "door" opens to allow the animal to be
off-loaded. That opening, whether a genuine hatch-type door or some
miraculous opening in the solid side/bottom of the ship, then cause the
collected space dust to be dislodged and fall to the ground directly
underneath the craft. However, I think there is a better explanation. I've
long been a proponent of a null-mass drive for UFOs rather than the more
commonly cited "antigravity" drive. A craft generating a null-mass field for
itself would not repel space dust that came within its vicinity as it
travels. While not attracted to the mass of the vehicle, perhaps there is
still a magnetic attraction (simple static electricity perhaps) between ship
and particle. Such a ship coming down to hover near the ground may have this
attraction charge overcome or neutralized by the close proximity to the
Earth's surface. And/or if it were to depart at a sudden high velocity, it
would probably "shake loose" some of this loosely bound material. Thanks to
Harv Howard

Editors Note: One of the field workers who helped collect the hemoglobin
evidence in the cattle mutilation case was Royce Myers. I inadvertently left
out his name. Again I want to thank Nancy Talbot, William C. Levengood,
Phyllis Budinger, Jean Bilodeaux for their ground breaking research.


AREA 51/Watertown Saucer: Robert Collins writes..It has been reported over
the last several years that in Reverse Engineering these reportedly recovered
Saucers the Air Force and others were required to design our own control
systems around the "Alien" technology because it was said that the "Alien"
control systems were so far advanced that we had no hope of understanding
them if we were to get a working device within a reasonable amount of time.
Well, whats reasonable ? Fifty years ? See,


This weeks Filer's Files are dedicated to "Tien" our Siamese cat who passed
away in his sleep a few hours ago. He was a friendly cat who lived with us
for 14 years. He was a talker and constantly meowed or talked to us. He
frequently sat on my lap as I typed these files, so my life is a lonelier
because I lost a friend. I assume he has gone to kitty heaven and perhaps we
will meet again.


Jeff Challender has prepared a new tape of various UFOs that were caught on
recent Shuttle video footage. Jeff has noticed that when NASA is picking up
UFOs they have tendency to first zoom in to observe the UFO better and then
they cut the feed to the outside world. Jeff spends hundreds of hours
watching the shuttle broadcasts from space. He is now an expert on NASA
missions and even those onboard the shuttle are unlikely to see what Jeff
does. He has gained his experience from watching numerous shuttle missions
and using Jeff's directions you will be able to learn the difference between
space junk, ice crystals and real UFOs. Using his experience you can also
learn the difference. One segment has 24 UFOs watching the shuttle from
space. I feel confident we could go into a court of law and convince any
jury that there are UFOs moving at high speed around the Earth. Send $25 to:
