The first of several coronal mass ejection's now heading toward Earth hit our
planet's magnetosphere between 0500 and 0600 UT on November 26, 2000.
Geomagnetic activity could become severe during the next 48 hours as one
shock wave after another reaches Earth. We encourage sky watchers to be
alert for the Northern Lights at middle and perhaps even low-latitudes
tonight. New reports indicate bacteria may
come from space.

UFO ACTIVITY HEATS UP with sighting reports from New Hampshire, New York,
Pennsylvania, Delaware, Texas, Utah and Russia. There is also a special
report on Jinn's a Moslem legend of supernatural beings.


SEABROOK -- Kenny Young reports the witness was driving north on Route 95 and
saw what he thought was a large plane coming in for a landing at Peas
International Airport at 5:00 PM. It looked like a wingspan, however it had
an unusual light pattern that caught my attention. The witness stated, "The
left wing (or what I assumed was a wing) had four white lights equidistant
from one another." These four lights were blinking like an automobile
directional signal. The right wing had two lights, a white and a red and
appeared to be at the inside and outside ends of the "wing." The blinking in
unison of the four white lights made me think the craft was having electrical
problems. As my perspective changed while driving I could see that the
craft, which appeared to be at about 1000 feet was actually hovering and not
a landing jet plane. A few moments after this realization I tried to see if
this was a blimp or some other recognizable craft. Then, as I watched, the
craft split into two: the left went down and the right went up. The two
maintained close proximity to one another. Then, to my amazement, a star
like fireball was shot/ejected in a northerly direction. I heard no noise
and saw no muzzle blast. The fireball held a straight trajectory until
disappearing from view in the distance. I pulled into a rest area and parked
my car. I watched as the two crafts slowly hovered in a south westerly
direction. The entire event lasted approximately fifteen minutes. Thanks to

LONG ISLAND -- George Krug writes, Hi, just a quick note to say that I just
read the article regarding the silent craft witnessed on the South Shore. I
live in Farmingdale near Republic Airport. I saw one of those craft about 1
or 1 1/2 years ago around midnight. It was immense, very low, red light in
the center. Strobe lights spaced on both sides of that and further away
another strobe type light smaller and all the lights moved at different
speeds. What was remarkable to me was the fact there was no sound. It moved
slowly and was very low over the houses. I estimated the size of this object
was at least 240 feet or more using the properties as a gauge. It continued
east and went over the airport. The sky was dark with no moon. I reported
this to MUFON. Thanks to Helen K


FREEPORT -- Peter B writes as a regular reader of the 'files' and a pilot I
felt compelled to comment on the sightings reported last week near J. F.
Kennedy Airport by Ruth. She states she saw, "a group of seven to eight
craft flying one by one, at 2 to 4 minute intervals, heading due south, then
eventually turning slightly to the right, going out over the ocean. This
always happens between 5:30 to 6:00 AM at low altitudes. I am located in a
flight path for planes from Kennedy and LaGuardia Airports and these are
different. These craft fly much slower and much lower than the commercial
Ruth is clearly seeing the early morning arrivals to JFK. On this particular
morning sounds like they were using the approaches to runway 33 Left and 33
Right. Arriving from Europe they pass over DPK (Deer Park VOR) and depending
on volume of traffic, head south over the water or more inland (i.e., the
Meadowbrook) before heading south over the ocean then west to land on 33
which lands them to the Northwest. The 2 to 4 minute intervals" was a dead

"I am not sure of the exact size, since they are always seen at night or very
early morning before sunrise. Ruth says, "Lighting on these crafts consists
of two very bright white strobes, one on each side, which flash
simultaneously, and one red light on the underside, in the center, which
flashes alternately." There is never any sound!" Again clearly jet arrivals
to JFK. I too have noticed some new interesting light/strobe patterns
lately. There is big emphasis on collision avoidance and they do appear to
give the aircraft a very triangular appearance at night. As for the lack of
sound, on the ILS these aircraft have the power back and are usually doing
about 200-250 Knots. At these speeds with today's turbofan technology, they
are VERY quiet indeed. Depending on the amount of traffic stacked up on the
ILS the arrival pattern will vary. Any where from remaining south of the
beach, to flying up the Meadowbrook Highway and making a sharp turn over
Garden City to the Southwest to JFK. They are allowed to fly down to 1500
ft, so they can come down pretty low if the weather is bad. Thanks to Peter


DOUGLASSVILLE --The sky was clear, dark, stars were prominent. I was sky
surfing on November 25, 2000, and saw a crescent shaped craft heading east,
while I was facing southeast at 10:30 PM. The object was about at 1000 feet,
and appeared to sparkle with multicolored lights of yellow, blue, red, green
and white. It was beautiful. It moved slowly, then turned coming toward me,
went in an ark over me, still high, at about 800+ feet. It then turned to
the east again, and I watched it until it was out of my field of vision. I
could not identify it as anything we have in the air now. It was awesome. My
girlfriend and her husband also saw it, and thought it was spectacular.

Pew, could you let me know if there was any meteoric activity on the night of
October 30, 2000? Traveling home around 10:00 PM on a very cold and clear
night on Route 380 East going toward the Poconos, I took the Elmhurst Exit to
Rout 435 South going towards Moscow, Pa. There were no streetlights or other
cars around to cause distractions or reflections. I saw a bright orange
fireball with a long orange tail go across the night sky from left to right
across the line of vision. It was not too high above the mountain line as I
could see it at the top of my windshield without looking upwards. It was
moving much faster than any plane or jet, and was going in a horizontal
straight line. It reminded me of the much televised Scud missiles of Desert
Storm. Can you verify that maybe this was part of a significant meteor or
asteroid event? Thanks to Sandra De Pew -

Editor's Note: There has been a series of meteor and UFO reports. Yours
sounds like a meteor.


DOVER -- My family was driving south on Route 113 at mile marker 46. in
Delaware, when we saw bright "airplane" lights approximately two miles away
on November 3, 2000. We continued to drive towards the lights at 7:40 PM.
As we approached the lights, we thought they might be from an athletic field,
however; as we got closer, we could clearly see a "Stealth" shaped aircraft.
The ends of the wings curved inward toward the fuselage. The aircraft
appeared to be the size of a large passenger jet. The aircraft hovered 200
to 300 feet off the ground, as we passed within 200 feet of its location over
a field on the side of the highway, near a stand of trees. There was no
sound that we could hear over the "road noise" of our van. We were very
exited and I turned our van around in the highway median and went back for
another look. The aircraft moved across the road in front of us and off in a
northeast direction. We lost sight of the aircraft as we drove by a stand of
trees, and when we cleared the trees, the aircraft was gone. The aircraft
appeared to have three lights on the front of each wing which projected from
the nose of the aircraft. There was also a red blinking light in the middle
of the plane. At the time, we were six miles or so from the Dover Air Force
Base. I think this may have been an experimental military jet, but I have
never heard of a jet this large capable of hovering like a Harrier Jet.
There were many cars on the road at the time, and we are sure that many other
drivers must have seen the aircraft. I reported the sighting to the Delaware
State Police the next morning we've never hear of, or seen anything like
this. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC


HOUSTON - Mike Tamburri, an attorney and his fiancé were watching the clear
star studded night sky from their deck four stories up that overlooks the
city. They were watching numerous aircraft landing at Hobby and Houston
International Airports on November 26, 2000, the last night of the
Thanksgiving weekend. At 8:40 PM, a huge Flying Triangle moved over the city
blocking out the stars with numerous lights along the three edges of the
craft. Almost all other aircraft in the sky had blinking and strobing
lights. This craft stood out because of its size and lack of collision
avoidance lights. The craft was at least double the size of 747, one of the
largest aircraft in the world. The craft made absolutely no sound. They ran
to get their camera but the craft was gone before they could get it on film.
Thanks to Mike Tamburri for calling in with his sighting.

TEXAS UFOs INSIDE CONTRAILS -- Marilyn Ruben writes, "We have just received
very interesting chemtrail photos at the Alien Abduction Experience and
Research web site." The photos were taken July 20, 2000, by Lynn Stokes who
was in a grocery store parking lot in San Antonio, Texas. When Mr. Stokes
looked up at the sky, he saw massive chemtrails being sprayed by jet
aircraft. He ran back into the store to buy a disposable camera and took
photos of the chemtrails. Much to his surprise, when the photos were
developed, one of them showed a large round object streaking through the sky
with an orangish tail. The witness explained he did not see the round object
in the sky at all while he was taking pictures. A close up of the photos
indicates up to seven unidentified objects in the vicinity of the chemtrails.
One of these objects is enlarged and enhanced at the web site. The photos
may be seen at the web site for Alien Abduction Experience and Research , or at Thanks

VICTORIA -- My name is Steve Antrich. I am a Houston Chronicle carrier and I
am out between the hours of 2 and 9;00 AM. I usually watch the skies at
night since I have an extensive rural route in the
Schulenburg/Flatonia/Moulton/Shiner area about 45 miles from Victoria. This
morning on November 22, 2000, in the southern sky I saw a white/orange light
fairly close to the horizon, hold your arm out, close your hand (not fist,
but with fingers extended and together) and it was four finger widths above
the horizon. I would guess about 25 degrees above the horizon. I dismissed
it as a weather balloon reflecting the rising sun. BUT was it? The sun was
still below the eastern horizon. The sky wasn't that bright at 5:10 AM. The
craft was pretty much stationary. I know what a flying plane looks like when
it flies into a sunrise/sunset. It wasn't a plane! I'm pretty sure it
wasn't a planetary phenomena, but I'm not positive, my astronomy is a little
rusty. Thanks Steve Antrich

CHALLIS -- Correction to Filer's Files #45. I reported a case on a September
27, 2000, where three hunters spotted a large UFO over their camp. This
sighting occurred in Idaho and not Indiana. The hunters saw a dark triangular
object floating silently above them. This was a dry camp, so alcohol
couldn't be blamed for what they saw at 9:45 PM. They saw a craft with
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 campers grabbed their binoculars to check it out until it moved out
of sight. There were three lights, one on each corner of the triangle. 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. It was deep red
and pulsed once a second. Peter Davenport wrote, "Just for your information,
the report from Challis, ID, is from the National UFO Reporting Center, not
from NIDS. Thanks to Peter Davenport. NUFORC


Researcher Don Ware writes, "I agree that UFOs are responsible for most
bovine mutilations." I have seen much evidence that the blood and the
tissues around the orifices that contain the amino acids needed for new
tissue growth are used to feed our hybrid babies, "Homo alterios spacialis."
There are many. It is a joint human/Zeta program. The last time we got such
a genetic upgrade, Adam and Eve produced a genetically improved population of
a million before Eve screwed up, according to "The Urantia Book." That was
43,000 years ago.

MAJACHKALÁ -- Last week we reported on a UFO over Russian troops near
Daguestan, a Republic bordering Chechnya on November 14, 2000. Apparently
Russian aircraft were launched to intercept a low flying UFO near the Caspian
Sea. Muslim rebels are fighting against Russian forces north of the Caucasus
for over a year and a half. The UFO caused the Russian to sound battle
stations. Some garrisons noted the object was flying at low altitude of only
a 100 meters and had three fluorescent lights above with two meter spaces
between them.
The Muslim rebels hailed the UFO phenomenon as a sign from Allah. Muslim
leaders in Dagestan claimed "the strange phenomenon was a portent which bore
a message from Allah himself. An Islamic spiritual leader stated that,
"Without any doubt it was 'a JINN, an angel or another heavenly being, since
Allah's Garden of Bliss is filled with these.'"

Editors Note: Powerful Islamic forces are rising in the Middle East using
UFOs as an influential motivating factors. Islamic forces are fighting in
Israel, Iraq, and Russia. To help you understand the significance of these
sightings, I have included the following data about JINN'S (popular genie)
and UFOs.


Gordon Creighton of Flying Saucer Review writes: One of the more curious
features of the followers of the various religions is that, being so
dogmatically certain that in their own particular little faith they already
possess the whole truth about all things in Heaven and Earth, it almost never
occurs to any of them to look elsewhere and find out what the followers of
other religions may know or may have discovered. This is certainly a pity,
for study of all the great world religions -- and notably Islam one of the
world's great religions -- yields valuable clues as to the true nature of the
"UFO Phenomenon" Islam knows, in fact, of the existence of three entirely
separate and distinct species of intelligent beings in the Universe, and
indeed can furnish surprisingly precise details regarding their natures and
roles and activities. Angels, Men, and JINN'S.

The first category is that of the Angels or Messengers. The second are Men,
with planetary physical bodies assembled from the mineral and chemical
elements of our Periodic Table. The third category, is the category of those
beings created before man was who are referred to collectively in Arabic as
Al-Jinn that means. "to hide or to conceal" indeed a very fitting derivation
for the name of these creatures. Whereas the bodies of Angels are of light,
the bodies of Al-Jinn consist of "essential fire," or "essential flame," or
"smokeless fire," or "smokeless flame." It is specifically stated in the
Qur'an (Surah XV, 26 and 27) that they were created before mankind and some
scholars speculate these might be the "Pre-Adamic men" whose existence is
hinted at here and there in the "Holy Bible." Western occultists have tried
to describe them as ether, or as etheric or astral planes. I have also seen
it suggested that some sort of plasma is indicated.) The Source of the
Jinn's is not very distant from us, yet at the same time somehow very far
from us. In other words, on some other dimension, or in some other
Space/Time framework, "right here", some other Universe that is here, behind
Alice's mirror: "a mirror-universe on the other side of the Space-time
Continuum" as it has been neatly put by some investigators.

Although, the Qur'an (Koran) is not clear on this, it looks as though some of
the Jinn's could be fully physical and what we call extraterrestrials, while
other species of them are of an altogether and finer sort of matter,
corresponding to what various UFO investigators have tried to indicate by
such terms as "ultraterrestrial" or "metaterrestrial." In thinking about
these ideas, we might bear in mind the theory of the Russian philosopher P.
D. Ouspensky regarding the possible existence of other, more subtle, levels
of matter on which the elements of the Periodic Table of our own chemical
world are repeated -- and, if I understand him aright, repeated more than
once, on more than one level. The early writings of Dr. Meade Layne in the
USA about the "Dense Etheric World" from which he maintained that the UFO
entities and their craft originated should also be borne in mind. (His book
The Coming of the Guardians, was published in 1958, and may prove to have
been very important.) Certain of the benevolent Jinn's may well be our

That there is some close affinity, or some link of destiny between Jinn's and
Mankind seems certain, for although the vast majority of the Jinn's are
devils, shaytans, nevertheless we are assured in the Qur'an that some among
their many species are "goodies" and are capable of salvation. For it is
specifically stated that Muhammad was sent as a Messenger to both Mankind and
the Jinn's, so that, in the Final Days, some of the Jinn's will enter into
Paradise, while the rest of them will be cast down into Hell. Their
revelation to IBLIS, the Top Devil (= "SATAN") is in general somewhat
obscure. In the Qur'an Iblis is certainly described as a Jinn, but elsewhere
in the Qur'an he is also described as an Angel. (Surely the explanation is
that Iblis is that same high being, originally of Angelic status, who
rebelled against God and is named in the Christian texts as "Lucifer") Had we
the space, much more might be said about the Jinn's and their doings, but
only a brief account of their main characteristics can here be given. Their
principal features, as listed below, are as I have gathered them from all the
Muslim written and traditional sources that I have been able to consult over
the past 15 years. The reader can see for himself the parallels with the
reported features of UFO entities and can draw his own conclusions.

The Chief Characteristics of the Jinn's are: 1. In the normal state they are
not visible to ordinary human sight.
2. They are, however, capable of materializing and appearing in the physical
world. And they can alternately make themselves visible or invisible at
3. They can change shape, and appear in any sort of guise, large or small.
4. They are able also to appear in the guise of animals.
5. They are inveterate liars and deceivers, and delight in bamboozling and
misleading mankind with all manner of nonsense. (See the average
Spiritualist séance for examples of their activities, and also the usual
"communications" from UFO entities in close-encounter cases.)
6. They are addicted to the abduction or kidnapping of humans. (The
Scotsman Robert Kirk, who wrote "The Secret Commonwealth" in 1691, evidently
"knew more than was good for his health," and was killed by them.)
7. They delight in tempting humans into sexual intercourse and liaisons with
them, and Arabic literature abounds with accounts of this kind of contact by
mankind with both the "goodies" and the "baddies" among the Jinn's. There
are also even a considerable number of accounts of encounters between the
"goodies" and famous Muslim saints.

In official Islam - and this cannot be overemphasized -- the existence of the
Jinn's has always been completely accepted, even legally, and even to this
day, in Islamic jurisprudence. The full consequences implied by their
existence were worked out long ago. Their legal status, in all respects, was
discussed and fixed, and the possible relations between them and mankind --
especially in relation to questions of marriage and property! -- were
seriously examined by jurists, as the greatest and most authoritative Western
source, the Encyclopedia of Islam, confirms. Stories of sexual commerce
between Jinn's and mankind have been of perennial interest to Arab readers,
and it is important at this point to mention that in Chinese literature there
is also a considerable tradition of this sort which awaits examination by
Ufologists. The great Arabic literary catalogue known as the Fihrist,
compiled in the year 373 of the Muslim Calendar ( = A.D. 995) by Muhammad
bin Ishaq bin Abi Ya'qub al-Nadim al-Warraq al-Baghdadi, lists no less than
sixteen works dealing with this theme. (Compare also the European
occultists' records of sexual contact between men and female Sylphs, as well
as the copious medieval Christian records relating to Incubi and Succabae.

LONDON'S DAILY MAIL NEWSPAPER reported on November 25, 2000, that scientists
in Wales said they discovered what may be a tiny form of primitive alien life
that a passing comet may have dropped into Earth's atmosphere, reported
Wednesday. Researchers said that in the filter of a high-flying balloon
operated by the Indian Space Research Organization, they found a strain of
bacteria unlike anything on Earth. The bacteria were found at an altitude of
10 miles and scientists from the ISRO, Cardiff University and the University
of Wales College of Medicine said it may have come from a comet on a close
approach to earth, according to the Daily Mail. Professor Chandra
Wickramasinghe, who is based at Cardiff University, said the discovery marked
"the first time we have had direct evidence for the hypothesis that comets
seed life on other planets." Wickramasinghe and astronomer Fred Hoyle
suggested the theory of "panspermia" more than two decades ago, that the
seeds of life, either DNA or microbes, could be carried by asteroids or
comets and dropped off on planets such as earth to germinate life. The
bacteria found in the balloon's filter "is a hitherto unknown strain,"
Wickramasinghe said. "It is so different from anything we've seen before that
there are only two possible explanations." One, he told the Daily Mail, is
that "organisms have been lifted from the earth to great heights in the skies
and have somehow multiplied there and changed over time." The second, he
said, is "that this is an example of primitive alien life." The newspaper
said samples of the bacteria are under study at Cardiff's Astrobiology
Center, which Wickramasinghe and other scientists from ISRO, Cardiff
University and the College of Medicine have teamed up to form. Copyright

Editor's Note: The Earth is being hit almost daily by meteorites, cosmic
dust, coronal mass ejection's, and apparently now bacteria.


Sam Sherman writes that International Business Machines Corporation (IBM)
announced it sold the US Air Force a supercomputer to help it to identify
unidentified flying objects. The Air Force's Space Surveillance Team, based
in Maui, Hawaii, will use the supercomputer to hunt outer space for old
satellites, foreign spacecraft, and other UFOs that may be hurtling toward
Earth, IBM said. The IBM system will be used to detect and identify some
9000 objects currently flying around in Earth's orbit. The computer can
process 480 billion calculations per second to help improve blurry telescopic
images of space objects. Thanks to Sam Sherman FLEXARET2

US GOVERNMENT UFO PROOF RELEASED: Audio tapes of a genuine UFO Alert at
Edwards Air Force base and studied by the Foreign Technology Division at
Wright Patterson Air Force Base, are now available for distribution to the
public. Sam Sherman's audio documentary tape called EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE
ENCOUNTER on the night of October 7, 1965, uses the actual voice recordings
provided by the Air Force. During this event 12 high tech luminous UFOs
invade secure air space and came down low over Edwards AFB. Tower operator
Sgt. Chuck Sorrels spotted them and is heard on the original tapes and
notifies the Air Defense Command. The UFOs are described and a decision is
made to launch F-106 fighter interceptors. You are there for an important
part of UFO history. Hear it for yourself, it's the best UFO tape ever made.
Tape cost is $14.95 each plus $2.00 for shipping -- total $16.95 -- (for
overseas orders-out of US - add $6.00 shipping cost -- total -- $20.95) you
can send either a personal check or money order to: Independent International
Pictures Corp, Box 565, Dept. GF, Old Bridge, New Jersey 08857.


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:
