Former Prime Minister, Japan is a UFO Believer
Toshiki Kaifu, Prime Minister, Japan states, First of all, I told a magazine this past January that, as an underdeveloped country with regards to the UFO problem, Japan had to take into account what should be done about the UFO question, and that we had to spend more time on these matters. In addition, I said that someone had to solve the UFO problem with far reaching vision at the same time. Secondly, I believe it is a reasonable time to take the UFO problem seriously as a reality… I hope that this Symposium will contribute to peace on Earth from the point of view of outer space, and take the first step toward the international cooperation in the field of UFOs. Toshiki Kaifu, Prime Minister, Japan, in a letter to Mayor Shiotani of Hakui City, dated June 24, 1990, endorsing an upcoming Space & UFO Symposium.
This Is How Mastering Dark Matter Could Take Us to the Stars
First Photo of Black Hole (Dark matter)
From JACK SARFATTI < This article below neglects the better alternative of low power warp/wormhole Tic Tac Tech metric engineering
Because the author is unaware of it. All forms of impulse/thrust propulsion are now obsolete period.
The Universe is out there, waiting for you to discover it.
The hyper drive from Star Wars appears to depict an ultra-relativistic motion through space, extremely close to the speed of light. Under the laws of relativity, you neither reach nor exceed the speed of light if you’re made of matter. But you might be able to approach it if you had a large-enough amount of an efficient-enough fuel. Dark matter could fit exactly the conditions we need to make this science-fiction dream a reality.
Dark matter is one of the biggest mysteries in all of modern science. Everywhere we look on large cosmic scales — from low-mass galaxies
To the largest galaxy clusters, from the cosmic microwave background to the cosmic web that traces the Universe’s structure — we can see the imprints and effects of its presence. For every proton’s mass worth of normal matter, there’s five times as much dark matter, out-massing and out-gravitating the conventional stuff that makes up everything we’ve ever directly detected.
Even though we have yet to directly detect it, and even though we aren’t sure exactly what its true properties are, dark matter holds a tremendous promise for the future of humanity. Ubiquitously located all throughout the galaxy and far beyond, dark matter could be the perfect fuel that makes our interstellar dreams come true. Here’s the story of how.
NASA / JPL-CALTECH Chart of distances
A logarithmic chart of distances, showing the Voyager spacecraft, our Solar System and our nearest star, for comparison. If we ever hope to travel across the great interstellar distances, it will require a technology that’s superior to chemical-based rockets, and hopefully that will include the discovery of a fuel that can be replenished as we traverse our path through the galaxy.
Whenever humanity sets our sights on exploring the depths of space, there are constraints we can’t avoid: the laws of physics. In order to accelerate a spacecraft — or any mass — you have to impart an impulse to it in order to change its momentum. The larger the impulse, the more you can change an object’s speed. All that determines the magnitude of an impulse is how much force you apply and how long you apply it for.
In a conventional rocket, that impulse is provided by rocket fuel that undergoes a combustion reaction, which produces impulse in the form of thrust. Although this is the best method humanity has come up with for space travel so far, it’s incredibly limiting. All of our past and current rockets are chemical-based, unfortunately, and that places tremendous constraints on how far we’ve been able to go.
This 2015 engine test shows the firing of SpaceX’s Raptor engine, which relies on an extremely powerful and fuel-efficient reaction. Unfortunately, it’s still a chemical-based reaction, and converts only about one-millionth of the fuel’s mass into energy. We will have to do better if we want to achieve our interstellar dreams on timescales of a human lifetime. SPACEX / ELON MUSK
The reason for this is simple: in order to produce thrust — i.e., in order to impart an impulse to your spacecraft — you have to convert that stored chemical energy in the fuel into kinetic energy that pushes your spacecraft. In order to generate that energy, however, you have to use up some of that fuel you’re carrying with you.
The key to getting lots of thrust, and therefore lots of acceleration, is fuel efficiency. Certain types of fuel are more energy-efficient than others, meaning that we can get more energy (and thrust, and acceleration) out of, say, 1 kilogram of some types of fuel. An easy way to think about this is through Einstein’s most famous equation: E = mc2. If you had a perfect, ideal fuel, it would convert 100% of your fuel’s mass into energy, enabling you to make the most efficient fuel imaginable.
The launch of Cassini, on October 15, 1997. This spectacular streak shot was taken from Hangar AF on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, with a solid rocket booster retrieval ship in the foreground. For all of our history on Earth, the only way we’ve ever reached space is through the use of chemical-based fuels.
At most, though, chemical-based reactions are somewhere around 0.0001% efficient. The reason is as follows: chemical reactions rely on electron transitions between atoms and molecules. Most of an atom’s mass is in the form of protons and neutrons, each of which have a mass that contains around 109 eV worth of energy. Electron transitions, however, are on the order of a few (typically 1-10) eV of energy. Even with all the chemical-based tricks we can perform, there are no known reactions that allow us to improve on this.
Sure, we can go for some type of nuclear fuel, but that’s only marginally better, achieving efficiencies of around 0.1%. It’s a huge improvement, if we can realize it, but there’s still a fundamental problem with accelerating to speeds that will carry you interstellar distances on reasonable timescales.
The Tsiolkovsky rocket equation is required to describe how fast a spacecraft that burns through a portion of its fuel to create thrust can wind up traveling through the Universe. Having to bring your own fuel on board is a severely limiting factor as far as the speed at which we are capable of traveling through intergalactic space.
The key problem is as follows: whenever you burn fuel, you have to accelerate the entire mass of your spacecraft, including any fuel that’s still on board. Read that again: including any fuel that’s still on board.
In other words, let’s imagine you can shoot exhaust out of your vehicle at an incredible rate: 100,000 mph (about 160,000 kph), relative to the rocket itself. If you start off with a rocket where 99% of your initial mass is fuel, and you assume that your fuel is perfectly 100% efficient (as though it were pure matter-antimatter annihilation), you’d wind up with a final speed of 460,000 mph (740,000 kph). Even at this record-setting rate, it would still take thousands of years to reach the nearest star.
All rockets ever envisioned require some type of fuel, but if a dark matter engine were created, new fuel is always to be found simply by traveling through the galaxy. Because dark matter doesn’t interact with normal matter (mostly) but passes right through it, you wouldn’t have any difficulty collecting it in a specific volume of space; it would always be there as you moved through the galaxy.
On the other hand, there’s another approach to interstellar travel that could — in principle — make our science-fiction dreams come true. Instead of bringing your fuel with you, what if you collected it as you went? Typically, ideas like this involve enormous magnetic fields that funnel charged particles into some sort of “trap” in your spaceship, allowing you to put nuclei and electrons together where you can then extract energy and perform further reactions with them.
But dark matter offers a tremendous advantage over normal matter in this regard. Why? Because you don’t have to do anything special to collect it. It’s literally everywhere, distributed in an enormous halo surrounding and encompassing every large galaxy we know of, including the Milky Way. If we find ourselves anywhere in the galaxy, there’s bound to be dark matter lying around.
While stars might cluster in the disk and the normal matter might be restricted to a nearby region around the stars, dark matter extends in a halo more than 10 times the extent of the luminous portion. It is truly found everywhere humanity has dreamed of traveling in our own galaxy, and in many places beyond.
The second tremendous advantage comes from the progression away from chemical-based rockets and towards the idea of a perfect fuel. For chemical-based rockets, 0.0001% energy efficiency is the best we can hope for. For nuclear-based rockets, fission power might get us up to 0.1% efficiency, and nuclear fusion might get us a little further: perhaps up to 0.7%.
The ideal configuration would be to use matter-antimatter annihilation, which is 100% energy efficient. The downside of matter-antimatter annihilation comes with a terrible cost, though: it takes a tremendous amount of work, energy, and effort to create an extraordinarily small amount of antimatter. If you took all the particle physics laboratories ever constructed on Earth and added up all the antimatter humanity has ever created, from Fermilab to CERN, you’d wind up with less than a microgram of antimatter.
A portion of the antimatter factory at CERN, where charged antimatter particles are brought together and can form either positive ions, neutral atoms, or negative ions, depending on the number of positrons that bind with an antiproton. If we can successfully capture and store antimatter, it would represent a 100% efficient fuel source, but many tons of antimatter, as opposed to the tiny fractions of a gram we’ve created, would be required for an interstellar journey. SIEGEL
Sure, E = mc2 might be the most efficient way to extract energy from mass in the entire Universe, as it represents perfect efficiency. But even if you manage to contain and store your antimatter successfully and annihilate it only at the proper moment, you’ll still have a finite supply of fuel that required an incredible amount of energy to collect. Once you use up this perfect fuel, you’re all out, and all you can do is travel at a constant velocity through space for an indefinite duration of time. Even if we could generate an arbitrary amount, we’d still be fundamentally limited with an antimatter rocket.
That’s why the promise of a dark matter fuel source is so alluring. Not only might dark matter be an unlimited fuel source (in terms of abundance) that we don’t have to carry on board with us, but it might have that perfect, 100% efficient matter-to-energy conversion potential we so strongly desire.
Our galaxy is thought to be embedded in an enormous, diffuse, indicating that there must be dark matter flowing through the solar system. Although we have yet to detect dark matter directly, its abundant presence throughout our galaxy and beyond might provide a perfect recipe for the perfect rocket fuel imaginable.
ROBERT CALDWELL & MARC KAMIONKOWSKI NATURE 458, 587-589 (2009)
There are a multitude of experiments looking for the collisions of dark matter with both normal matter and itself. In general, there are two types of particles in the Universe: fermions (with half-integer spins) and bosons (with integer spins). If dark matter is a bosonic particle with no electric, color, or weak charge, that would mean it behaves as its own antiparticle.
If you can collect two dark matter particles and make them interact with one another, there’s a finite probability that they’ll annihilate. When an annihilation occurs, they’ll produce pure energy in a 100% efficient fashion: via Einstein’s E = mc2. In other words, if we understand dark matter correctly, there’s a free, unlimited source of energy everywhere humanity dreams of going.
The XENON experiment located underground in the Italian LNGS laboratory. The detector is installed inside a large water shield; the building next to it accommodates its various auxiliary subsystems. If we can understand and measure the particle properties of dark matter, we may be able to create conditions that coax it into annihilating with itself, leading to the release of energy via Einstein’s E=mc^2, and the discovery of a perfect spacecraft fuel.
Because dark matter is everywhere, we wouldn’t even need to carry it with us as we traversed the Universe. As far as we understand it — and admittedly, we need to understand it a lot farther — dark matter could truly deliver our dream of the ultimate fuel. It’s abundant all throughout our galaxy and beyond; it should have a non-zero annihilation cross-section with itself; and when it does annihilate, it should produce energy with 100% efficiency.
Perhaps, then, most of us have been thinking about experiments seeking to directly detect dark matter all wrong. Yes, we want to know what makes up the Universe, and what the physical properties of its various abundant components truly are. But there’s a science-fiction dream that could come true if nature is kind to us: unlimited, free energy just waiting there for us to harness, no matter where in the galaxy we go. Mastering dark matter is the endeavor that just might make it so. Follow me on Twitter. Check out my website or some of my other work .Ethan Siegel Contributor

X-37B OTV5 Space Plane Photographed
A top secret American ‘space plane’ has been photographed by an amateur astronomer in the Netherlands. The US Air Force’s mysterious X-37B craft conducts intelligence operations from orbit. Built by Boeing and flown remotely, the craft – also known as Orbital Test Vehicle 4 – is on a mission the U.S. will only describe as ‘classified’. But it was finally pictured by Ralf Vandebergh, an aeronautics journalist and amateur space photographer who has apparently been chasing the elusive machine for months. He told Live Science that he had been able to track it down in May but wasn’t able to get photos of it. Then, it seemingly disappeared. ‘When I tried to observe it again [in] mid-June, it didn’t meet the predicted time and path,’ Vandebergh explained.
Photographer Ralf Vandebergh has published his photographs on Twitter (Ralf Vandebergh) at 339 km

Thanks for your intention to discuss some interesting things. In 2001-2015 Ipublished New Energy Technology Russian-English magazine and you can download all 25 issues here http://www.faraday.ru/net.htm
Let me know please if you have downloaded it.
About your gravity research I can say some aspects.In 2005, I made some experiments in St. Petersburg University on superconductor rotor in magnetic field. This topic is similar to Podkletnov results. It works but to my mind it is too complex for commercialization. Like other direction of research. It was discovered by Tomas Townsed Brown as propulsion effect in gradiental E field of some dielectric material.
In any Russian textbook also there is text about force effects in gradiental dielectric. I tested some designs and most interesting is grad E field in electrets since we can see effects without external power source after the electrets was charged. Also I made some experiments with rotation of E and H fields but it is clear the effects in stationary materials are better for commercialization. One more interesting topic is Active Force Materials that is special surface anodize relief to take off part of kinetic energy of air molecules. It is simple method to get propulsion force by means of direct heat energy conversion. I hope you can see my projects here http://www.faraday.ru/projects.html
Russian Physicists Built the Tesla Tower and Plan to Provide Free Energy On Earth
After seeing that most of his projects have been successfully accomplished, perhaps the most important one was not.
The Tesla Tower was constructed near the island of Manhattan at the beginning of the 20th century, but for unknown reasons, it was not completed.
The Astonishing World of Nanotech
Mr. Nano Controls a company and claims on the Jeff Rense Radio Program disclosure is coming forth about our military capabilities that are extraordinary. Mr. Nano claims the stonewalling of UFOs is over. He goes to science conferences where ten years ago he met tall white aliens in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He has worked with tall whites on research in nanotechnology ever since.. He was worried his phone was tapped. There is no secrecy everyone is tapped. He runs a billion dollar research corporation where a meter is down to an atom size. New materials have been developed like carbon atom tubes that can can conduct electricity through it. Quantum theory coded particles come together and building Nano computers is a reality.
It’s time to stop the cover-up. Tall white aliens are working with us in key industries. He had a near death experience and became aware of products developed by aliens. Science has taken off in the last 8 years. Much has been withheld from the public. Tesla captured an energy field in 1902. We didn’t have to take the road we are in. It’s about technology to make money off it. Scientists are moving forward quickly perhaps a thousand years ahead where you think we are. Nano like UFOs have gone from the news. We have organic materials that are self sensing, and can tell if you are in a bad or good mood. We are feeding information into the universe and suggests we may be Extraterrestrials ourselves.
What are Nanomaterials and “Nanotechnology Applications?”
Introduction to Nanomaterials
Nanotechnology is one of the most rapidly advancing scientific technologies today. Nanotechnology includes nanometer-scale processing and the production of various components by controlling size and shape. A nanometer is one billionth of a meter. Generally when the size is less than 100 nanometers (100 nm) those production techniques can be considered nanoscale. There are two methods used to produce nanomaterials. One is called the “top down method” and the other is the “bottom up method.” In the first method very small components are produced using larger parts of the material. In the bottom up method nanomaterials are produced by processing molecule by molecule or atom by atom.
Properties of Nanomaterials
One significant property that makes nanoparticles different from other materials is the fact that nanomaterials have a massive surface area. Because of their very high surface area, nanoparticles are extremely reactive compared to its larger form. This property is used to create materials with distinctive characteristics for various applications. One nanotechnology application is carbon nanotubes that have a very high strength. Its remarkable strength is due to the higher surface area of its originating materials.
In the nano level, quantum effects have a higher effect on the behavior of particles. Therefore some materials have special effects that have utilized smartly to produce innovative products. Then magnetic, electrical and optical properties can be effectively exploited to certain applications. As an example if Gold particles can be rendered in to particles with radius of 2 nm then their melting can be lowered from 10600 C to 6000 C.
Applications of Nanomaterials
Nanotechnology has already contributed to number of innovative products in various engineering disciplines because of their unique and rewarding chemical, physical, and mechanical properties. One of popular application of nanomaterials is nanotubes. Carbon nanotubes (CNT) are one of an illuminative example for the potential of nanotechnology. The tensile strength of high carbon steel is around 1.2 GPa but the tensile strength of carbon nanotubes (CNT) is 63 GPa. Also they are known to be one of the strongest materials having been produced by nanotechnology so far.
Basically nanotechnology applications can be divided in to several categories. Thin films and engineered surfaces fall in to the one dimensional applications of nanomaterials. They have been used for fields like electronic and chemistry so they can’t be considered as a new material. Two dimensional materials like tubes and wires are the other type of applications of nanotechnology. Nanowires are ultrafine wires or linear arrays of dots that are formed by self assembly. Semiconductor nanowires are produced of silicon. There dimensional nanomaterial applications include nanoparticles like dendrimers and fullerenes. Dendrimers are spherical polymeric molecules that are formed through a nanoscale self-assembly process.
Nanotechnology Applications in the Field of Electronics
Nontechnology has helped to break barriers in the field of electronics. Many of the miniaturized products in this field perform very poorly as a result of contamination of particles and poor heat dissipation. Thanks to nanomaterials, now ultra high purity materials with better thermal conductivity can be used to overcome those issues. Nanomaterials are quite important to produce long lasting and durable interconnections. The super-capacitor is another production of nanotechnology. They have a quite large capacity compared to normal capacitors due to the fact that they have large surface areas resulting in a large capacitance.
Many other fields also use nanomaterials for a wide variety of applications. Better insulation materials can be produced using a technique called sol-gel. Aerogels are such a product with extremely light weight and porousity that is used for the insulation of homes and offices. By using them heating and cooling bills can be remarkably reduced. Tougher and harder cutting tools can be produced using nanomaterials that give many industrial benefits like low production cost and higher productivity. Also high energy density batteries are one of most important production that uses nanotechnology.
Still many of techniques related to nanomaterials and nanotechnology are under development. But their achievements are quite amazing. Marvelous applications of nanomaterials are yet to come. Thanks to Bright Hub Engineering
Editors’ Note: Nanotechnology is used by the aliens within the spaceships. They actually travel through space as very small objects and enlarge when near Earth. My friend Ingo Swan told me how government agents one night flew him to Alaska and laid on the edge of a lake to witness a spaceship the size of a basketball land a few feet above a lake. The craft suddenly enlarged to the size of a large ship and let hoses down into the water. It was apparently taking on clean fresh water that may be used for propulsion, washing, drinking and many other uses. After thirty minutes or so the craft again reduced in size and flew off into space.
Mysterious ‘metamaterials’ in Bigelow Warehouse
Pentagon insider claims US government has warehouse full of ‘metal from crashed UFOs’ Mysterious ‘metamaterials’ which could come from crashed alien spacecraft are being stored by the American government, according to a former military intelligence official. Luis Elizondo, who headed up the US Defense Intelligence Agency’s secret Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), said that the objects were stored in specially modified warehouses in Las Vegas. The warehouse – run by aerospace billionaire Robert Bigelow – is under armed guard and fortified with concrete and barbed wire, the Sunday Times reported. What’s in there? The Bigelow compound
Luis Elizondo claims that the materials stored there are ‘metamaterials’ – composites which do not occur naturally. Elizondo said, ‘To engineer these materials with that degree of precision is something we do not believe we have the technical capability to reproduce.’ When asked where the materials came from, he said, ‘I can’t answer that question.’ Elizondo headed a multi-million dollar Pentagon investigation into UFOs. . It amassed information on craft which appeared to move extremely quickly without to have any visible form of propulsion such as a jet engine. Does this warehouse contain parts from crashed UFOs? Other craft seemed to hover in the air without techniques of generating ‘lift’ such as rotor blades, Elizondo said. Footage of an encounter between an F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jet and an oval-shaped object with no exhaust, wings or tail travelling at incredible speeds was later released to illustrate the sort of sightings investigated by the AATIP. Much of the investigation was contracted out to Bigelow Aerospace, whose founder once told CBS 60 Minutes he was ‘absolutely convinced’ that aliens are real and that our planet has been visited by UFOs. Bigelow hinted in a TV interview last year that he ‘knew’ that aliens were here – and that he might be in danger for divulging it. Interviewer: Do you believe in aliens?
Robert Bigelow: I’m absolutely convinced. That’s all there is to it. Interviewer: Do you also believe that UFOs have come to Earth?” Robert Bigelow: There has been and is an existing presence, an ET presence. And I spent millions and millions and millions – I probably spent more as an individual than anybody else in the United States has ever spent on this subject.
Late 2017, when the New York Times revealed the Defense Department’s secret Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program had investigated reports of UFOs, some of which came from the Navy.
A UFO sighting in 2004, two F/A-18F Super Hornets from the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz were flying 100 miles off the coast of San Diego when a nearby Navy guided missile carrier,
the USS Princeton, alerted them to two unknown objects, which the jets later flew to investigate: a larger underwater object that was “much larger than a submarine,” and a second “wingless, white” and “oblong” object that hovered 50 feet above the water and moved erratically. Here’s the infrared video of the encounter:
The F-18s are guided to the area where UFOs are picked up on radar and see a large disturbance in the Pacific Ocean.
Descending one of the craft take a photo of a 747 size ocean disturbance suggesting a craft is under the water.
In 2018, a second video was released that showed another Navy run-in with a puzzling, fast-moving object. The video was taken in 2015 off the East Coast by an F/A-18F fighter jet using the aircraft’s onboard Raytheon AN/ASQ- 228 Advanced Targeting Forward-Looking Infrared (ATFLIR) Pod.
Politico reports that more requests for briefings from members of Congress are rolling in, with one former government official telling the publication, “There are people coming out of the woodwork.” So more than 70 years after the first documented sighting, UFOs are just as mysterious as ever—but maybe we’re getting closer to finally uncovering some answers.
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.

UFO Sightings in the United States
Sightings are from MUFON CMS.
Above Arctic Circle — I was in the USAF stationed at a base in Alaska. I flew F-16’s for quite a few years. It was the last year of the Cold War and the Soviet Union was having problems and starting to fall apart. They had increased the number of flights per month, when Soviet bombers would test our early warning systems. It was not uncommon to be sent up to intercept and turn around Soviet aircraft. During February 1990 there were an unusually high number of alerts that fighters were sent up to investigate but were returning and reporting they had not found any craft in the area.
One day mid February. I was one of the pilots on ready status and was scrambled to go intercept several targets. When we located them, they were holding position, hovering. We flew past 3 objects at 800 meters distance. They looked like large barrels three times the size of a 50 gallon drum. My wing man made a flat turn to the South with the intention of creating a separation between us. I did a reversal called an Immelmann to create an altitude separation as well. As I completed it, the objects were no longer visible. We both continued south searching for them visually and electronically. After half a minute the other pilot saw the objects on radar diving from extremely high altitude. They dropped to a couple hundred meters above the ground. Stopped instantly and held their position. He was 5,000 feet below me so he dove towards them. All 3 objects shot straight up at approx. mach 6 until they went beyond our capabilities to maintain contact. Duration: 4 minutes Engagement with objects by USAF aircraft we patrolled the area for several minutes. And we began the trip back to base.
Tucson — I was leaving for work early morning after a thunderstorm overnight and realized a tree across the street had fallen over so I took a photo. Days after I noticed an object that I can’t explain. Photo was taken on August 15, 2018, with a Samsung Galaxy s9 phone.
Turlock — I a beautiful sunset on June 11, 2019, but it looked (and felt) quite curious to me. Upon recent reviewing of my pictures, they are showing something odd like separate orbs of light can easily be dismissed as natural. I have no scientific expertise or photo analysis background, figured I’d leave it up to those who do. I am unsure, have come to no conclusion of my own, and would rather prefer to submit what I have to peers of higher expertise.
Mesa — Prior to deploying to Afghanistan In 2010, I took a vacation with my mom in the area of Silverton, CO. I took random photos and I remember we were going through some pass through the mountains and heard a low buzz. Neither of us or step dad saw it or heard it. But clear as day, some round shiny object showed up in the picture. I asked around to some air force guys I knew and they have reported some sort of close encounter/sighting in their off time also. Photo is unedited.
Jacksonville — On July 4, 2019, when one ball then a second appeared out of thin air and then a third ball appeared. They played around each other like tag, at first I just looked then I took pictures, but only two came out.
Navarre — I was sitting on my front porch at 9:07 pm on 1 July 2019, 18, facing southeast with tropical weather rolling in all evening. I noticed something hovering in the sky sequentially pulsating. It was fairly large but couldn’t make out exact details. I thought to take video of the incident as it unfolded. As fast as it appeared, it was gone. I checked Facebook and to my amazement, I found a picture posted by a nearby resident with lights clearly visible in the night sky. I’m on the Gulf Coast where all aircraft have been grounded due to impacts of tropical storm Barry.
Scheller — I was taking a picture of my new weather station on June 29, 2019, and took a picture to share with the AcuRite Company who makes the Atlas with/Access weather station I purchased. I took the picture and a few days later I uploaded the photo from my cell phone to my computer and then I noticed the object next to the weather station. I could not increase the focus and it is too blurry when I zoomed in to look at it, but I did not see this when I took the picture. I wonder if this is a UFO?
Note: My original impression was that the object could be attached to the weather station, but appears detached due to a photo saturation effect. However, the witness would know if the object was attached to the station so this is not a viable explanation. Thanks to Will Pucket/www.ufosnw.com/newsite/
Slidell — Around 9:30 p.m. on July 8, 2019, we witnessed an incredible UFO. We chased it for about 45 minutes. From the light patterns, the UFO appeared to be of a triangle shape and flew at incredible speeds, while flashing many different bright white light patterns. Some of these light patterns appeared to be in the formation of triangles.
We were able to get quite close to the craft and it was completely silent. This UFO moved much faster than any plane could move! It was too large and too fast to be a drone. When driving back over Lake Pontchartrain I observed a couple of lights headed quickly down towards the water over the lake and possibly USO?
Pontiac — I was driving down the highway on July 6, 2019, to dtw airport. I noticed the sun rise beautifully so I took some pictures. The car was moving at 80mph. When I looked at the pictures, I noticed the orb/ whatever that is. It is in different locations in different pictures as I was taking multiple shots. In two of the pictures, there is a funny shaped object heading toward the big bright hole in the sky.

Steven woodman I have a 33 second video. Photos were taken on July 5, 2019.
New York Lights
Hudson River — Lights of two bright objects speeding over the Hudson River were captured while taking Manhattan view photos during the daytime on July 9, 2019
Broken Arrow — This sighting was on June 22nd 2016. We saw a black, slow moving triangle that had 3 white corner lights and one blinking red light in the middle. It flew right over top of us and was totally silent. By the time I got my phone out I got a quick video I lost it in the trees.
There were 3 witnesses and the sighting time was about 1 AM. It was pretty amazing! Thanks to Will Pucket/www.ufosnw.com/newsite/
Galveston — Tonight I saw a cluster of lights that separates then comes back together. This happens every night. Photos were taken on July 7, 2019.
Waco — I looked north from my balcony and noticed a very slow moving, fairly low object that appeared to be floating from north to south. The object looked similar to a spinning top type toy with yellow/orange lights around the circumference and a reddish type light at the top of the object. I kept an eye on the object until it disappeared from my sight, which lasted a total of 2-3 minutes.
Seattle — I was working just west of SeaTac Airport in Seattle on June 30, 2019. Happened to look up and this object that had no wings, blades, parachute… was hovering within the airport flight cone. After I got a few pictures and a video it shot off in a NE heading almost breakaway velocity too fast for my eyes to track. Duration of sighting was four minutes.
Worldwide UFO Sightings
Mill Park, Melbourne — I wanted to share this as it was probably the most profound, unexplained sighting I managed to capture from my phone. I have shown it to a few friends and they were pretty impressed. Back in mid November, 2014, I left my house at 5 pm to go out for dinner. I was sitting on the passenger’s side in my friend’s car and saw strange ‘rainbows’ appearing. I quickly rummaged for my phone to get 5 or 6 rainbows. They were all quite close together and just above tree-top height. After 10 minutes all had faded but one rainbow remained. This is when I asked my friend to pull over so I could get photos and the I managed to catch a strange triangular, metal looking object which appeared to have been ‘shot out’ of a ‘canon looking’ cloud beside it.
Canada Green Lights
Montreal –On July 5. 2019, I didn’t not see the UFO when taking the photos. I wanted to get a good shot of the Moon. Later, when looking at the photos, I noticed the UFO with green lights. All 4 pictures were taken within a 60-second period and show the UFO in 4 different spots. The pictures were taken with the iPhone X.
Mexico Light Object
Cancun — Taking some photos looking towards Isla Mujeres in Mexico at 11pm took 6 or 7 pictures, one of which has an object on it. Pictures were taken on July 2, 2019
July 11th, 2019, at 01:50, ion the Montserrat mountains, we saw that formation.
Pictures were taken on July 11, 2019.
Plymouth — I saw this thing for over two days in Plymouth flashing lights from massive round headlights. The object itself was massive under clouds and was flashing colored lights Pictures were taken on April 14, 2019.

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.
