CONTACT IN THE DESERT 2019: AN EPIC UFO CONFERENCE
Belgian Air Force General Claims Triangle UFOs Exist
My name is Wilfried De Brouwer. I am a retired Major General of the Belgian Air Force and I was Chief Operations in the Air Staff when an exceptional UFO wave took place over Belgium. Indeed, during the evening of 29 November 1989, in Eastern Belgium, 140 UFO sightings were reported. Hundreds of people saw a majestic triangular craft with a span of approximately 120 feet, powerful beaming spot lights, moving very slowly without making any significant noise but, in several cases, accelerating to very high speeds.
The following days and months, many more sightings would follow. The UFO wave would last more than one year during which a Belgian UFO organization conducted more than 650 investigations and recorded more than 400 hours of audio witness reports. On one occasion, a photograph revealed the triangular shape and four light beams of the object.
In my function of Chief Operations, I was confronted with numerous questions about the origin and nature of these craft.
In the first instance, and in consultation with other NATO partners, 1 could confirm that no flights of stealth aircraft or any other experimental aircraft look place in the airspace of Belgium. In addition, the Civil Aviation Authorities confirmed that no flight plans had been introduced and the object(s) committed infractions against the existing aviation rules
In any case, the Air Force has arrived to the conclusion that a certain number of anomalous phenomena have been flown within Belgian airspace. The numerous testimonies of ground observations compiled in this Society of Belgian Studies of Celestial Phenomena [SOBEPS] book, reinforced by the reports of the night of March 30-31 , have led us to face the hypothesis that a certain number of unauthorized aerial activities have taken place.
A mystery that continues to the present, but it exists, it is real, and that in itself is an important conclusion. Major-General Wilfred de Brouwer, Deputy Chief, Royal Belgian Air Force, “Postface” in SOBEPS’ Vague d’OVNI sur la Belgique -1991.
Flying Triangle Mysteries
After disc- or saucer-shaped UFOs, the most reported shape for these elusive objects is that of a black triangle or deltoid. Sometimes they are described as V-shaped or similar to a boomerang, but the triangular structure is the most commonly reported of this type. More often than not, they have bright lights at each corner and a larger one at the centre, although some are described as having rows of lights along the edges.
It is often said that Triangle sightings began in the 1940s and peaked in the late 1980s and 1990s, but they have been reported throughout history. Cave paintings, frescoes and woodcuts have all depicted triangular objects, as well as the more common discs, cigars and circles/spheres.
The 1561 celestial phenomenon over Nuremberg, Germany was a mass sighting of celestial phenomena or unidentified flying objects (UFO). The phenomenon has been interpreted by some modern UFO enthusiasts as an aerial battle, possibly of extraterrestrial origin. Around dawn on April 14, 1561, residents of Nuremberg saw what they described as an aerial battle, followed by the appearance of a large black triangular object and then a large crash outside of the city. According to witnesses, there were hundreds of spheres, cylinders and other odd-shaped objects that moved erratically overhead. A broadsheet news article with a woodcut engraving was printed later that month by Hans Glaser, describing the event.
Two triangles were observed maneuvering close to the Moon on July 3, 1882. For 45 minutes the residents of Lebanon, Connecticut, were treated to a bizarre lunar display: “Two pyramidal luminous protuberances appeared on the moon’s upper limb. They were not large, but gave the moon a look strikingly like that of a horned owl. These points were a little darker than the rest of the moon’s face. They slowly faded away a few moments after their appearance. About three minutes after their disappearance two black triangular notches were seen on the…lower half of the moon. These points gradually moved toward each other along the moon’s edge, and seemed to be…obliterating nearly a quarter of its surface, until they finally met, when the moon’s face assumed its normal appearance.”
Early UFO Sightings
Bermuda — The Royal Gazette, states that, at about 8:30 a.m., on September. 8, 1885, there was observed by Mrs. Adelina D. Bassett, “A strange object in the clouds, coming from the north.” She called the attention of Mrs. L. Lowell to it, and they were both somewhat alarmed. However, they continued to watch the object steadily for some time. It drew nearer, it was of Triangular shape. What followed this sighting was a strange statement similar to modern attempts at debunking, a General Lefroy of the U.S. Army, gives us a terrestrial explanation for this 1885 sighting, He states it was a balloon that had escaped from France or England. If so it was the first aerial object of terrestrial origin to ever cross the Atlantic Ocean, and would have held that record for another 35 years…
German Zeppelin over London
1915 During World War I various shaped UFOs were reported over England. Most were reported as dirigibles flown by the Germans; but after the war the Germans claimed only a few missions were actually flown over England as Kaiser Wilhelm didn’t want to upset his relatives of the British Royal family.
Thousands of UFO triangle and cylinder reports were reported by military personnel.
Dr. David Clarke’s Clark’s article concerning Zeppelin Dirigible activity during World War I was particularly interesting to me since I flew over England for four years. During World War I hardly a night would go by without numerous reports of German Zeppelin activity over England, but the Germans only had one Naval Zeppelin and five Army airships in service when war was declared. Within a few months most had been destroyed or wrecked. German records reveal Zeppelin activity was very limited anywhere near England, yet sightings of airships were frequent and may have been UFOs.
Captain Stansfield of the trawler SS Ape and many of his
crew on December 15, 1914, reported sighting a black airship. After the war
airship records were read and all German airships were in their hangars due
to bad weather. On September 6, 1914, Flight Commander C.E.H. Rathborne of
the Felixstowe Naval Air Station, Suffolk returned from an early morning
patrol in his RNAS seaplane to make perhaps the first report of a UFO by a
military officer. “At 5:35 AM, whilst on patrol, I sighted an airship
steering south-southeast, with a silver colored envelope on the horizon while
flying at 1,300 feet, 27 miles south of Orfordness.”
A military intelligence report estimated the total number of reports of “enemy signaling” to be as high as 2,000 from the Scottish Command alone during the first year of the war. By January 31, 1916, nine Naval Zeppelins had been built and were ordered to bomb central England. The main campaign against England started in January 1915 using airships. From then until the end of World War I the German Navy and Army Luftstreitkräfte mounted 51 bombing raids on the United Kingdom. These were generally referred to as “Zeppelin raids. Weather conditions and night flying conditions made airship navigation and bombing accuracy difficult. Bombs were often dropped miles off target (one raid on London actually bombed Hull) and accurate targeting of military installations was impossible. The civilian casualties made the Zeppelins an object of hatred, and they were dubbed “baby-killers”. With the development of effective defensive measures the airship raids became increasingly hazardous, and in 1917 the airships were largely replaced by airplanes.
Although the military effect of the raids was small, they caused widespread alarm, leading to the diversion of substantial resources from the Western Front and lead to the creation of the Royal Air Force (RAF) on 1 April 1918.
The raids were also influential because they led to an overestimation of both the material and psychological effects of the bombing of cities.
The raids killed 557 and injured another 1,358 people. More than 5,000 bombs were dropped on towns across Britain, causing £1.5 million in damage. 84 airships took part, of which 30 were either shot down or lost in accidents. https://en.wikipedia.or
Zeppelin shot down and landed in Thames Estuary April 19, 1916
The Zeppelin scares and rumors generated thousands of reports of phantom airships that based on their records seldom ever flew near England. It appears many of the reports may have been UFOs since records reveal no known aircraft or airships were flying. Were these British eyewitnesses lying, mistaken, or had they really seen UFOs in their
Navy Won’t Reveal UFO Reports
Extraterrestrials, take note: The U.S. Navy plans to set up an official reporting and investigative system that will monitor reports from its pilots about unidentified flying objects.
But while this “X-Files”-worthy operation sounds newsy, don’t expect to hear details about it anytime soon. The Navy doesn’t intend to make the data public, citing the privileged and classified information that these reports usually include, according to The Washington Post.
“Military aviation safety organizations always retain reporting of hazards to aviation as privileged information in order to preserve the free and honest prioritization and discussion of safety among aircrew,” Joe Gradisher, a spokesman for the Office of the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Warfare, told The Washington Post.
In fact, beyond the announcement that the Navy is setting up this UFO-reporting procedure, “no release of information to the general public is expected,” Gradisher said.
The upcoming procedure comes in the wake of other government-related UFO news. In late 2017, word came out that the Pentagon had a secret “UFO” office that spent $22 million over five years to study strange and threatening aeronautical events. Although funding for the venture, called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), ended in 2012, the program didn’t entirely stop, according to those reports.
When news of AATIP became public in 2017, the Defense Department released two declassified videos, which showed pilots talking about a bizarre aircraft that appeared to accelerate quickly, even though it had no recognizable means of propulsion. These aircraft, which looked like blobs on the video, could allegedly drive thousands of feet in an instant.
By creating this new program, the Navy hopes to destigmatize any reporting associated with incidents that involve UFOs, which could, after all, be militarized aircraft from other parts of the world.
“There have been a number of reports of unauthorized and/or unidentified aircraft entering various military-controlled ranges and designated air space in recent years,” the Navy told Politico, which broke the story. “For safety and security concerns, the Navy and the [U.S. Air Force] takes these reports very seriously and investigates each and every report.”
The public may get a whiff of these incidents eventually, although the details may be scarce. For instance, perhaps unclassified parts, broad overviews or statistics about the number of sightings could be released, Luis Elizondo, an intelligence officer who ran AATIP before leaving the Pentagon, told The Washington Post.
“If it remains strictly within classified channels, then the ‘right person’ may not actually get the information,” Elizondo said. “The right person doesn’t necessarily mean a military leader. It can be a lawmaker. It can be a whole host of different individuals.”
The government is making a smart move by announcing its intentions to formally document and analyze these UFOs, said Seth Shostak, a senior astronomer at the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute in Mountain View, California.
“It will make everybody happy because it sounds like a move toward transparency,” Shostak told Live Science.
With this announcement, the Navy benefits not only because it will formally investigate these strange sightings, which may well be reconnaissance or enemy aircraft from other nations; the Navy is also winning a nod from the roughly two-thirds of Americans who think that the government isn’t divulging everything it knows about extraterrestrials and UFOs, said Shostak, citing a 2002 study on attitudes about aliens.
That said, the government probably isn’t formalizing this program because it’s looking for E.T.
“The military is interested in this stuff not because they think that Klingons are sailing in the skies, but I think because maybe they think the Chinese or the Russians are sailing through the skies,” Shostak said.
Navy drafting new guidelines for reporting UFOs
UFO over Brazil
The service says it has also ‘provided a series of briefings by senior Naval Intelligence officials as well as aviators who reported hazards to aviation safety.’
By Bryan Bender. The U.S. Navy is drafting new guidelines for pilots and other personnel to report encounters with “unidentified aircraft,” a significant new step in creating a formal process to collect and analyze the unexplained sightings — and destigmatize them.
The previously unreported move is in response to a series of sightings of unknown, highly advanced aircraft intruding on Navy strike groups and other sensitive military formations and facilities, the service says.
“There have been a number of reports of unauthorized and/or unidentified aircraft entering various military-controlled ranges and designated air space in recent years,” the Navy said in a statement in response to questions from POLITICO. “For safety and security concerns, the Navy and the U.S. Air Force] takes these reports very seriously and investigates each and every report.
“As part of this effort,” it added, “the Navy is updating and formalizing the process by which reports of any such suspected incursions can be made to the cognizant authorities. A new message to the fleet that will detail the steps for reporting is in draft.”\
To be clear, the Navy isn’t endorsing the idea that its sailors have encountered alien spacecraft. But it is acknowledging there have been enough strange aerial sightings by credible and highly trained military personnel that they need to be recorded in the official record and studied — rather than dismissed as some kooky phenomena from the realm of science-fiction.
Morning Defense newsletter
Chris Mellon, a former Pentagon intelligence official and ex-staffer on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said establishing a more formal means of reporting what the military now calls “unexplained aerial phenomena” — rather than “unidentified flying objects” — would be a “sea change.”
“Right now, we have situation in which UFOs and UAPs are treated as anomalies to be ignored rather than anomalies to be explored,” he said. “We have systems that exclude that information and dump it.”
For example, Mellon said “in a lot of cases [military personnel] don’t know what to do with that information — like satellite data or a radar that sees something going Mach 3. They will dump [the data] because that is not a traditional aircraft or missile.”
The development comes amid growing interest from members of Congress following revelations by Politico and the New York Times in late 2017 that the Pentagon established a dedicated office inside the Defense Intelligence Agency to study UAPs at the urging of several senators who secretly set aside appropriations for the effort.
That office spent some $25 million conducting a series of technical studies and evaluating numerous unexplained incursions, including one that lasted several days involving the USS Nimitz Carrier Strike Group in 2004. In that case, Navy fighter jets were outmaneuvered by unidentified aircraft that flew in ways that appeared to defy the laws of known physics.
Raytheon, a leading defense contractor, used the reports and official Defense Department video of the sightings off the coast of California to hail one of its radar systems for capturing the phenomena.
The Pentagon’s UFO research office, known as the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, was officially wound down in 2012 when the congressional earmark ran out.
But more lawmakers are now asking questions, the Navy also reports.
“In response to requests for information from Congressional members and staff, Navy officials have provided a series of briefings by senior Naval Intelligence officials as well as aviators who reported hazards to aviation safety,” the service said in its statement to Politico.
The Navy declined to identify who has been briefed, nor would it provide more details on the guidelines for reporting that are being drafted for the fleet. The Air Force did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Advocates for treating such sightings as a potential national security threat have long criticized military leaders for giving the phenomenon relatively little attention and for encouraging a culture in which personnel feel that speaking up about it could hurt their career.
Luis Elizondo, the former Pentagon official who ran the so-called AATIP office, complained after he retired from government service that the Pentagon’s approach to these unidentified aircraft has been far too blasé.
“If you are in a busy airport and see something you are supposed to say something,” Elizondo said. He added that because these mysterious aircraft “don’t have a tail number or a flag — in some cases not even a tail — it’s crickets. What happens in five years if it turns out these are extremely advanced Russian aircraft?”
Elizondo will be featured in an upcoming documentary series about the Pentagon UFO research he oversaw. He said the six-part series will reveal more recent sightings of UAPs by dozens of military pilots.
Both Elizondo and Mellon are involved with the To the Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences, which supports research into explaining the technical advances these reported UAPs demonstrate.
The Red Baron Saw a UFO in 1917
UFO researcher, Nigel Watson writes about World War I when Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen, also widely known as the Red Baron, was a German fighter pilot with the Imperial German Army Air Service (Luftstreitkräfte). He is considered the top ace of the war, being officially credited with 80 air combat victories. He was flying on a mission over Belgium in 1917, when he encountered a saucer-shaped craft about 130 feet in diameter, with undulating orange lights. Supposedly, the Red Baron attempted to shoot down the craft. The Red Baron was shot down in April 1918. Many of the incidents involved pilots seeing unexplained artificial lights in the skies, which they tried to follow. Dozens of sightings were reported of cylinder shaped craft similar to dirigibles. After the war these reports were compared with German records of the infrequent dirigible flights. Numerous flying cylinders were reported when the dirigibles were grounded.
Airline Pilots Are Still Afraid To Report Alien Craft in the Sk
Captain Jim Courant and Major George Filer
WASHINGTON—Airline pilots see unidentified flying objects but very few report it because of ridicule and the possibility of being fired. According to the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena, (NARCAP) there have been over 3,500 documented sightings of “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” by military, commercial, and civilian pilots. Filer told about his military encounter with a UFO. Captain Jim Courant, a commercial pilot for over 31 years says, “There are many more sightings that are just not reported. “It is almost astounding how many people are in the know on this subject,” he said, speaking before the Citizens Hearing on Disclosure at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on May 3 sitting next to Major George Filer. Courant has been researching and studying the phenomena of UFOs for years. He has collected over 3,000 books on UFOs and extraterrestrials, and hosted a television series on the issue titled “New Perspectives” which ran for three years.
He still flies for a commercial airline and because of his exposure on television has become known as an authority on UFO’s and extraterrestrial encounters. He has been contacted, and still is, by many commercial airline and military pilots who are happy to discuss their UFO’s encounters privately but do not want to talk publicly, fearing ridicule and in some cases retaliation. “They are afraid,” not so much about their status or their retirement benefits, but “they are more afraid for their families,” he said.
Jap 747 Encounter with UFO
He described the experience of one pilot who was flying a 747 over the Pacific in 1980, when he came across a UFO in front of him. “You won’t believe what we saw,” the pilot had said, according to Courant. “This thing was bigger that a 747.” Courant said the pilot told him that when he got to his destination in Japan, he “was debriefed and told never to talk about it again.”
Courant told the hearing about his own encounter with a UFO. In 1995, he was flying near Albuquerque, New Mexico, when he and his co-pilot saw a blue green oval shape approaching from the left. “In a flash of burning white light, the object suddenly shot up at a 45 degree angle,” he told the hearing. Four other pilots reported to the air traffic control tower that they had also seen the object. “One pilot said it must have been a meteor,” Courant recounted, adding, “I got on and said ‘Since when does a meteor go back up?’” When asked about his co-pilot’s reaction in a telephone conversation following the Disclosure hearing, Courant said, “He refused to discuss it and has never flown with me again.” Courant said pilots have reported seeing a variety of craft that appear suddenly and move at speeds impossible with present technology. Reports include cigar shaped craft, triangular craft, and some that are the size of an aircraft carrier or larger. He says airline pilots are “very serious in their profession” and not likely to make exaggerations.
The website NAPCAR, co-founded in 1999 by Dr. Richard F. Haines, a recognized specialist in UFOs and a former Chief Scientist at NASA’s Ames Research Center, has been effective at documenting sightings, but Courant says more needs to be done. “UFO sightings are only the tip of the iceberg” in terms of what has been experienced and what is known about extraterrestrials, “he said. “There are certain things I have been privy to, but I can’t get into that here,” he told the hearing. Courant said it was time for the United States government to come clean with what its agencies have documented and learned through decades of extraterrestrial encounters. Airline pilots know what they have seen; he said and should be able to talk about it without fear of ridicule or loss of jobs. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.

Persecution of Christians in Middle East Detailed in Report
Britain’s Secretary of State Jeremy Hunt. (Khalil Senosi/AP)
Jeffrey Rodack writes a new report details the pervasive persecution of Christians in parts of the Middle East, The Guardian is reporting.
And the report, commission by British foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt, said the persecution sometimes amounts to genocide.
It noted millions of Christians have been uprooted from their homes in the region. Many of them have been killed imprisoned, kidnapped and discriminated against.
“The overwhelming majority (80%) of persecuted religious believers are Christians,” the report said.
“I think we have shied away from talking about Christian persecution because we are a Christian country and we have a colonial past, so sometimes there’s nervousness there,” Hunt said. “What we have forgotten in this atmosphere of political correctness is actually the Christians that are being persecuted are some of the poorest people on the planet. In the Middle East the population of Christians used to be about 20%; now it’s 5%.”
The True Story of an Air Force Intelligence Officer’s Life with UFOs
U.S. Air Force Major George Filer belongs to the generation of pilots and airmen who first became aware of the strange aircraft showing up in the Earth’s atmosphere after World War II. These men – military professionals who flew planes, served as radar operators and air traffic controllers at air fields around the world – began to whisper amongst themselves about encounters with suspected extraterrestrial aircraft.
During secret debriefings at U.S. bases, pilots and air crew told their commanders of seeing UFOs off their plane’s wings. Award-winning investigative author John Guerra spent four years interviewing Filer, a decorated intelligence officer.
From objects in the skies over Cold War Europe to a UFOs over during the Cuban Missile Crisis to lights over the DMZ in Vietnam Filer leaves nothing out about his Air Force UFO encounters,
Filer’s most memorable case – the shooting of an alien at Fort Dix Army Base in 1978 – is fully recounted for the first time in this book. As a member of the Disclosure Project, military experts, astronauts, and scientists urge the U.S. government to release all it knows about UFOs to the public. Filer describes his UFO encounters in this incredible book. By John L. Guerra. https://amzn.to/2SK3SIQ
UFO Sightings in the United States
Sightings are from MUFON CMS
Sedona — A friend and employee who is moving soon (hence me finally getting hands on the photo/videos and submitting this report) witnessed and captured some interesting footage of a spherical/glowing object in the night sky. Photo was captured on February 8th of 2017, video files over the following nights until the 14th. Captured on an iPhone7 which was zoomed in and laying on its back. Reported to me as above Lee Mountain off of SR 179 in Sedona, AZ.
Tucson — This object was close to a plane and disappeared as quickly as it appeared. Saw it when I was taking a picture of a nice plane. Took 4 pictures and the object cannot be seen in the other pictures. See 2nd photo taken at 2:14 pm, om April 28, 2019, which shows odd object that appears to have windows. I have witnessed many sightings west of Tucson in the past 13 years, both day and night.
Westlake Village — I have had this image for a few years and it’s stored on the hard-drive of an older computer that I have. I was in Grad school in Pasadena in May 2016, and drove home to my kids 60 miles away. When I stopped at Sprouts to pick up dinner, there was a rainbow so I took its picture. There was a strange object in the rainbow. It looked like a crystal plane with no wings. It is a ufo. I got a fuzzy feeling when I took that picture. These are photos I took from the screen of my old computer.
Joshua Tree — According to a witness and the metadata of the witness’ photo a vacationer may have accidentally photographed a flying saucer during a visit to Park Blvd in the Joshua Tree National Park on April 28th, 2019 at 11 AM
. Check out the photo they took and submitted to MUFON (case 10006) below, and as always, you be the judge on whether or not this shows an alien spaceship or something easier to explain, like a drone or bird! “I don’t believe this is a hoax, I took a photo at Joshua Tree NP and didn’t realize the object was there until a few days later when I was looking over pictures from my vacation,”
Breckenridge –My husband and son were on vacation on April 30. 2019. We are from Florida so we were very excited to wake up to the snow covered grounds on Tuesday morning. I took 3 quick pictures out of the balcony one right after the other. Later I was going thru my pictures and realized I had captured 3 objects. The object changed and moved as can be seen. I also have one other picture that may show 3 white round objects captured in Arches National Park on 4/26 in the afternoon. I am a 65 year old project manager and have never been out to capture UFO sightings. Just looking to find an answer to what I captured. Thank you, Gail
Tampa — On my way to work I noticed strange phenomena in the sky and begin to take photos. Later that night I scrutinized the photos, none of them gave justice to the magnificence in the sky that day. However, I noticed that one of the green orbs that I’ve seen throughout my life with my naked eyes that are better than 20/20 was in a photo glowing behind the trees.
Statesboro — My wife and I were leaving Wal-Mart and we saw strange lights above the mall across the street on December 17, 2019. The lights seemed to turn as if it were rotating. We went back the following day and there were no towers or anything with lights that it could have possibly been.
Park Hills — Changed shape, color, and size quickly and immensely.
Almost looked like some kind of vortex. Had beams of light circling it like it had a nucleolus similar to an atom. Photo was taken on May 4, 2019.
Monett — Four glowing orbs flew overhead making no sound at all. Video shows objects as they were going away from us. Appeared in the sky from nowhere, passed overhead and flew into the distance on May 1, 2019.
New Mexico Objects
Farmington — Woke up during the night to let my dog outside. It was then that I heard a strange noise, like an electrical transformer overloaded. I looked around but nothing seemed out of the ordinary except the noise kept getting louder. The dogs in the neighborhood all started barking. I noticed that something was blocking out the stars. I counted 15 pretty large objects that were moving in a group but speeding up and then stopping. 3 objects turned south and were then gone. They moved so fast that the trees in neighborhoods yard were swaying and the leaves were rustling. All the dogs in the neighborhood stopped barking and my dog was clawing at the door to go inside. The 12 other objects passed overhead and went in different directions very quickly and then stopped. I grabbed my cell phone to take pictures. I drove south of town just as it was becoming light. I stopped on CR7010 and started taking pictures.
A Water Truck stopped behind me. For the next hour these objects flew up, down, ever direction putting on an air show. I tried to call my wife but my cell phone didn’t work. None of our cell phones worked. The Water Truck was a large MACK with a Diesel engine which the driver Antonio had left running suddenly shut down and wouldn’t restart. I tried to start my 2013 Chrysler and it also wouldn’t start. The Oil & Gas crews 2018 Chevrolet also wouldn’t start. They had been listening to their radio when they stopped but when they turned the key to start the truck a high pitched whine and what sounded like a person who was trying to talk underwater. None of us could understand what was being said. I tried my car radio and heard the same thing on every station. We were frightened, and didn’t know what to do because whatever the objects were came closer to the group right around us. The objects just flew around us about 200-300 feet in the air. They were extremely fast and could stop on a dime and change directions. During all this time was the hum. Then suddenly at about 6 am all the objects flew in a formation and were gone in the blink of an eye. We stayed for about 10 minutes just talking about it. Antonio started his Mack truck right up with no trouble as did the Chevy and my Chrysler. The radios and cell phones worked perfectly.
North Carolina Lights
Fayetteville – On May 10th, 2019, I took my dog outside to walk, and I always stare up at the sky/stars when I’m out. I noticed two stars rather close together. This looked odd to me, so as I looked up at it, one of them began to move down in a southeast direction. It didn’t go too far, and then it just stopped. I started filming and could see a star that looked ‘blurry.’ It looks like a round ship, with lights flashing around it. Then a line of lights come off the bottom of it, like being part of a larger ship.
Cincinnati – A very large V/triangle shaped craft that moved silently. It disappeared at incredible rate of speed on May 8, 2019. I was driving home when something very large in the eye caught my eye. I was stopped at a light near my home and only got 15-20 seconds of view. The craft was very large v/triangle shape with 9-10 lights lining the V pattern. I heard no sound from the craft. The craft was heading NE at an estimated 15-20,000 feet and dark in color either black or dark gray It made two movements, and seemed to descend rapidly and then abruptly shot out of sight along the same path it was traveling. I am not aware of any other witnesses to this phenomenon.
Springfield — My wife and I from 2 separate locations seeing a triangle shaped formation of lights on May 3, 2019. She saw them 1st and told me. “Do you see that you see that?” I ran over to the window with my daughter and seen these 3 lights Orange and red I pulled out my phone after immediately hanging up on her and began to record she kept calling interrupting one of the videos so I also took a couple still shots I posted it all over Face book and had a local investigator and Podcast radio host Tobey Johnson from Strange Brau Radio I see pictures of him common investigate the site in an interview me and my wife about what we saw. Also reported to Will Pucket/www.ufosnw.com/newsite/who reports:
Note: A check of local weather showed that skies were clear at the time of the sighting. Photo analysis does not reveal a solid object between the lights, but one still can’t rule that out. I found no evidence that the lights were celestial in nature. There were no bright planetary conjunctions.
El Paso – A fighter aircraft was see taking off from Biggs Air Force Base on May 7, 2019 and seemed to chasing a UFO. They flew seeming to maneuvering to get away. The fighter and the UFO moved off in chase when both suddenly disappeared not far from clouds. Thanks to B Cornet.
Concrete — Object actually flew in from the south going north then it turned 180 degrees to the south flew straight on May 6, 2019. Then did another 180 deg turn and did a vertical climb, then leveled and gained speed rapidly. Then it was just gone; not there anymore. This object never made a sound.
Wisconsin Floating Ball
Crum — Floating ball of light on May 1, 2019.\ It looked like the ball in the middle was transferring energy to the other ball of light. Three balls of light all together.
Worldwide UFO Sightings
Australia Colored Lights
Palm Beach – On May 5, 2019, fishing on the beach, no lights visible when I arrived just a clear night with stars and some planes, the moon was out but in a crescent shape, I happened to fish for awhile until I looked out towards the main city of Surface Paradise, and noticed four very large yellow glowing lights in the sky. At first they looked almost to be arranged in a cross shaped formation. I immediately realized that this was something unusual that I had never seen before. I got my phone to film the event, and the lights became a bit more spaced out. Ozone would fade out for a few seconds then reappear in the same spot then sometimes would fade and appear next to one of the larger lights. I believe there is no way a plane could cover the distance that these solid yellow glowing lights did. They all appeared to travel in the same direction heading north then they all just faded away,
This sighting is a picture by Agobar Peixoto from Fortaleza, Brazil On Face book.
Toronto — I was on my balcony on May 6, 2019, and noticed a glowing light and what looked to be a helicopter flying towards it and as soon as the helicopter got close the UFO suddenly moved. The UFO hovered and would jump to a different spot like nothing I’ve ever seen and it kept happening for about an hour. I I’ve always believed that UFO’s exist and I finally got proof
Chennai — It did not have symmetry but it was able to clearly differentiate it from the surrounding as it was matt black and did not have a smooth surface, on May 5, 2019. The below surface reflected the light from the ground because the surface of the object was like the improper moldings of tiles which reflected light and it went past me smoothly as an aircraft would
Odessa — Many plasma spheres’ are spotted on the shore of a salt lake.
It is called Kuyalnik Lake, Odessa, Ukraine, on the evening May 6, 2019.
Shrewsbury — Whilst outside for a smoke at 649 hours on 13th November 2018, I noticed a strange sphere hovering in the sky outside our village. The sphere was stationary over fields to the South West of our village called Ford, which is about 4 miles West of Shrewsbury. It was 600 feet in the air and pulsated weirdly. The sky was full of clouds so could not of been a star,
I started to film on my Galaxy S8 phone and whilst doing so my partner also came outside and witnessed this weird sphere. As I started to zoom in and out on the sphere with my phone, my phone suddenly stopped working and all the birds fell silent. I am ex military and I am very familiar with all aircraft. Strangely, at about 0705 hours a British Army Air Corps Apache Longbow helicopter started to operate low over the very same fields for 20 minutes as if the pilot was looking for something.

Have been digging through the giant DVD you sent recently. As a relatively recent joiner, I was unaware of the years’ worth of consistent reports of the same types of objects all over. This has been very educational. Just wanted to thank you for all you’ve done.

Put another way, a young person in the U.S. is nearly 11 times as likely to die in a swimming pool than in a school shooting. Few public officials would say pools are doing a poor job protecting swimmers, but the statistics suggest that we need “more lifeguards at pools, as opposed to guards at schools,” Fox said
The Filer Research Institute feels the scientific study of UFOs is for the benefit of humankind and is an important endeavor. The US Air Force investigated UFOs publicly for more than twenty years under Project Blue Book; and I continue this advanced research. I believe the God of the universe has spread life throughout the cosmos and UFO’s are visiting us in ever-inceasing numbers.
I will be in Mt Shasta this summer and wish to encourage people to come and see this conference.
