UFO REPORTS DECLINE IN US, BUT PICK UP AROUND THE WORLD
UFOs are reported in New Jersey, Florida, Michigan, Illinois, Iowa,
California, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Germany, UK, Italy, Australia,
Japan. COMET LINEAR - The Comet C/2001 A2 made its closest approach
on June 30th, glowing at visual magnitude 4. Although, Comet LINEAR
spectacular, it is easy to spot with the unaided eye as it tends to

DISCLOSURE PROJECT REVELATIONS
WASHINGTON DC -- On May 9, at the National Press Club some twenty former
government employees claiming encounters with unidentified flying objects
while performing military or government duties went public to demand
congressional hearings on this mostly highly classified phenomenon.
Force Academy graduate Captain Robert Salas, who spent seven years on
duty, reported that in March of 1967, UFOs flying above Minuteman Missile
silos at Malmstrom Air Force Base (AFB) in Montana had knocked off line
dozen nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles. The witnesses gave
picture of UFOs frequently hovering over key military and nuclear sites
nationwide. UFOs also penetrated airspace around nuclear weapons systems
the autumn of 1975. Security forces at Loring AFB, Maine, Wurtsmith
Michigan, and others along the Northern Border including Malmstrom AFB
were scrambled. At least one fighter was lost chasing the UFOs. Lt.
Dwynne Arneson was in charge of the Communication Center at the Twentieth
Division at Malestrom and dispatching nuclear launch authentication's
missile crews. He saw messages stating UFOs were near the missile silos.
Crew coming to work and going off duty saw the metallic circular objects
shinning lights down on the missile silos and shutting them down.

shot at the warhead repeatedly from the UFO and the warhead started
uncontrollably as the UFO flew away.
The combined testimony of Disclosure witnesses indicates the Earth
visited by intelligently flown UFOs showing a capability to locate our
missile systems, to cause failure of their guidance and control systems,
if necessary to destroy them in flight. These combined activities indicate
sophisticated intelligence providing a clear warning against nuclear
Numerous witnesses and documents back the testimony. It is my opinion
must be a perception by the leaders of these countries that a potential
threat exists. President Ronald Reagan went on national television and
the world he was going to build a defensive shield called the Strategic
Defensive Initiative (SDI), generally called Star Wars. Its mission
protect us, to protect us all. We are going to share with everybody
including our enemy the Soviet Union. A few years later, we became allies
with the Russians and now we fly together aboard the International Space
Station. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. Perhaps the real
of Reagan's remarks made to the 42nd General Assembly of the United
on Sept. 21, 1987, during the height of the Cold War, becomes more
meaningful. Reagan stated, "In our obsession with antagonisms of
we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps
some outside, universal threat to make us realize this common bond.
occasionally think how quickly our differences would vanish if we were
an alien threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask you, IS NOT
FORCE ALREADY AMONG US?"
NEW JERSEY UNDERWATER MYSTERY
SURF CITY -- On Friday, June 29, 2001, my wife, and daughter were looking
the Atlantic Ocean just after dark about 8:30 PM and noticed a light
under water. About thirty people gathered on the beach to video tape
watch the strange lights. I walked down the beach to the nearest point
the underwater lights. They were moving about a hundred yards from shore.
Red green and white lights were observed. At times they would swing
arc extending out 15 to 20 yards. Gradually I noticed the lights were
toward the shore. Three alien looking beings dressed in black rose up
the ocean. They wore dark masks and were of short stature. They were
strange breathing sounds and stumbling as they came ashore. I had my
camera on super night shot and got great shots and finally the intruders
identified. Three young scuba divers waded ashore with bags filled with
shells and treasures of the sea. They said the sea was teaming with
fish, crabs and squid. The onlookers were disappointed. They told me
night before there were speeding lights maneuvering oven the ocean.
lights would fly in from the north, come to a screeching halt, hover,
off again. Many thought the lights under the sea were connected to UFO
sighting. Joe who owns Joe's Towing told me he had never seen anything
the UFOs the night before!
FLORIDA DISK SLOWLY MOVES LATERALLY
ST. PETERSBURG -- I was driving home at 7:00 PM with my brother as

through the sunroof so it must have moved up higher. I stopped to observe
for about 4 minutes. The disk was now stationary, and about 45 degrees
with a white light omitting off it. We left for home leaving it behind
the next morning I went back to the same spot at the same time just

in the same spot started to move across the sky at a constant pace.
sopped for a few seconds, and then they would move higher, stop, and
across the sky. This continued for two minutes before the objects were
completely out of view. The witness said, "I cannot really say
if it was one
big craft, or three smaller crafts, but they formed a perfect right
and moved at the same speed, and stopped at the same time the entire
of the event." Satellites don't form perfect geometric shapes,
and stop in
random spots across the sky. Now the object or objects never really
close to the ground, the entire time they maintained a high altitude.
MICHIGAN GREEN/YELLOWISH LIGHT ON SAUCER
OAK PARK -- At 11:33 PM on June 16, 2001, the witness took his Dalmatians
for walk in the park. The witness saw what he thought was a lightning
across the street at the park. I followed this green yellowish light
went straight up slowly above the tree line, so he couldn't tell how
was. It wasn't flickering, just getting smaller. Then the light started
moving south to north without making a sound. He didn't take his eyes
it; because he thought it was interesting and realized it was not ascending
any longer. He says, "I could see some reflection from the city
the underside of the craft." I couldn't believe what I was seeing.
I saw a
round saucer shape with only one green yellowish light at the rear of
object. As it went north he was able to follow it until it slowly flew
of sight. The clouds were around 8,000 feet and winds aloft were less
knots. The craft never went behind the clouds the whole time that I
so I know it was less than 8,000 feet. I've never seen anything like
before! Thanks to Peter NUFORC
IOWA FLYING TRIANGLE INVESTIGATION
AMES -- Beverly Trout Iowa MUFON State Director reports they have
investigated a case that occurred on May 17, 2001, when a Ph.D. at Iowa
University, his wife, and three children witnessed the sighting of a
silent triangle with bright blinking, strobing, and pulsing white lights.
was first seen at about 50 degrees up from western horizon, and was
about 30 degrees up from eastern horizon. The craft took three minutes
cross this area at 9:45 PM. A few minutes later the witnesses called
Beverly. Subsequent investigation shows cloud ceiling at 9,000 feet.
family estimated the object was at an altitude of 5,000 feet, with closest
approach at 85 degrees almost overhead. The Flying Triangle was viewed
the husband and wife through binoculars with 378 feet linear diameter
of view @1,000 yards. Binocular field of view could not contain the
triangular object. That is, husband and wife could NOT see the entire
within the field of view of their binoculars. These are very credible
Investigators having checked law enforcement, Iowa State climatologist,
FAA, are convinced that whatever was seen was, indeed "HUGE,"
and since we
cannot easily explain it, it remains in the UFO category. A neighbor
above family saw an unexplained aerial object between/beside their adjacent
homes on a previous occasion. In addition, the wife witness in the above
case had a daytime sighting three years ago near the southwestern part
Ames. Plus, MUFON has been contacted with abduction reports by several
individuals in the Ames area -- all witnesses thus far check out as

being submitted to Dr. W. C. Levengood's nonprofit laboratory in Michigan
with lab results clearing-showing anomalies associated with the formations.

DENVER -- Greg Lauver reports on June 28, 2001, he saw a satellite
up from the eastern horizon bearing south. It changed its mind and curved
east, and faded out. This happened over Denver. I don't know if this
qualifies as a "sighting" or not, but I thought I would forward

CALIFORNIA FLYING BASKETBALL
SIMI VALLEY -- A bright light coming through Esther Petersen's bedroom
awakened her on June 25, 2001, around 3:00 AM. She got up to look and
northeast, she saw a very bright light about the size of an orange,
in the sky. The object moved slowly and seemed to turn and had an irregular
basketball shape emitting an orange light from the bottom reaching to
ground. She has made a drawing of what she saw, showing several distinct
shapes. At this time, she also witnessed several round objects come
first object and hover around it. She woke up her sister, and they both
watched the object for another five minutes before everything just vanished.
Her sister's comment was that, "The stars were sure beautiful tonight."
Esther gave this report to Dr. Roger Leir, Section Director of Ventura/Santa
Barbara Counties MUFON. The woman also said, she had seen, "a white,
semi-clear figure standing by her bed that communicated telepathically
she would understand all this at a later date." She did not notice
particular detail, other than that, "His hands were large, and
he seemed to
fidget with them, as if he didn't know what to do with them." Dr.
I've known this lady for many years, and she is not prone to fantasy,
a very solid witness." NOTE: The town of Simi Valley is located
Thousand Oaks, 40 miles north of Los Angeles. It is overlooked by the
Boeing/Rocketdyne facility, that has been the site of a good deal of
activity. Thanks to Dr. Roger Leir and Don Robertson GBR262 Board Member

CANADA, "DID ET PHONE ALBERTA?"
ALBERTA -- The Calgary Sun of June 28, 2001, reports George Hofer returned
his Hutterite colony in southeast Alberta with a strange tale of a funnel
fire in a farmer's field. The funnel lit up the night for an hour, then
into sparkles. A month later, farmer Ken Masson found a three-metre-wide
circle in his field, with four indentations inside. Word spread quickly
an alien spacecraft had landed. A University of Lethbridge geologist
the UFO theory, but replaced it with an explanation nearly as interesting.
Pano Karkanis said the crater in Masson's field near Etzikom, 250 km
southeast of Calgary, was caused by a meteorite. Karkanis analyzed the
in the crater and tested it for radioactivity. He found no signs of
radioactive material that might suggest exposure to extraterrestrial
technology. He dismissed the indentations as marks made by rainfall,
the meteorite probably buried itself a meter deep in Masson's field.
Karkanis' findings drew criticism. Masson himself didn't buy the rainwater
explanation, pointing out the area had been dry as a bone, with farmers
as himself lamenting the absence of rainfall. Others have said a meteorite
wouldn't produce the effect Hofer saw, and that it would have left residue
the crater. Also, the crater's perfectly circular shape is not likely
result of a meteorite impact, believers said. Thanks to Gerry Farshores
MEXICAN SIGHTINGS CONTINUE AT VOLCANO
Troy Allen reports since June 25, 2001, he is observing UFOs over Popocatpétl
near Mexico City almost daily from the volcano's observation camera.
sixty UFOs have been seen in recent weeks. The volcano is active and
objects can be seen flying around the area. UFO s appear to have an
in the volcano since the December 21, 1994, eruption, ending decades
slumber. RI MUFON's Janet Bucci indicates she saw UFOs at the site on
2001. Small elliptical colored light that changes color (green, blue,
purple, yellow) that is more or less stationary (sometimes it moves
bit, or is closer or further away from the webcam lens) and a larger
or flattened whitish light that moves from snapshot to snapshot and
closer to the forefront (sometimes it's there, sometimes it's not).

NATIONAL UFO REPORTING CENTER
SEATTLE -- Director Peter B. Davenport writes: We have found FAA personnel
be extraordinarily helpful with regard to the UFO phenomenon. They probably
are our best source of accurate, factual data regarding dramatic UFO
sightings. We have received countless telephone calls from controllers
supervisors, who appear to be every bit as fascinated by the UFO phenomenon
as we investigators. Some specific cases come to mind. On November 17,
1995, when multiple fireballs streaked across New England, down the
coast, and were later seen over the Northwest, the second call we received
was from an FAA controller out of Nashua, NH. Because of the call, NUFORC
was able to obtain the audio footage of two airliners reporting the
they departed New York for Europe.
When a disc-shaped object paced a turbo-prop airliner near Saginaw,
February 27, 1996, the FAA controller called us and express mailed a
pre-release audiotape of the radio communications. It allowed the principal
aviation journalist at The Plain Dealer newspaper in Cleveland to write
two-page article about the incident...(which was "spiked"
by his editor.)
When a huge, triangular formation of unusually bright lights approached
airliners just north of Dallas/Ft. Worth on the morning of October 26,
the first call we received was from an FAA controller. He express mailed
certain crucial materials of interest. When a "cruise missile"
streaked past two executive jets over Missouri on November 11, 1999,
first report of the incident we received was from an FAA supervisor.
