In special reports, this week’s files cover: A Fire Officers Guide to Disaster Control, Moon UFO, and Strange Craft.
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maine, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania and South Carolina.
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over, Canada, Ireland, Mexico, Morocco, and England in the United Kingdom.
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-increasing numbers.

A Fire Officers Guide to Disaster Control
The following is a manual for Fire Officers responding to UFO incidents. I am quoting this for information and education purposes only. By William M. Kramer and Charles W. Bahme
Chapter 13 – Disaster Control and UFOs
Few residents of the United States, except for those in Hawaii, have experienced an enemy attack on their hometown in this century; some think they have.
The Great Los Angeles Air Raid of February 26, 1942, began at 2:25 A.M. when the U.S. Army announced the approach of hostile aircraft and the cities air raid warning system went into effect for the first time in World War II. “Suddenly the night was rent by sirens. Searchlights began to sweep the sky. Minutes later gun crews at Army forts along the coast line began pumping the first of 1,433 rounds of ack-ack into the moonlight. Thousands of volunteer air raid wardens tumbled from their beds and grabbed their boots and helmets. Citizens awakened to the screech of sirens and, heedless of the blackout warning, began snapping on their lights. The din continued for two hours. Finally the guns fell silent. The enemy, evidently, had been routed. Los Angeles began to taste the exhilaration of its first military victory.
THE UFO THREAT–A FACT
In this chapter we will now turn our attention to the very real threat posed by Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), whether they exist or not. The well-documented and highly publicized War of the Worlds radio drama by Orson Welles shows how even a perceived existence to alien creatures can cause very real disaster-like conditions and panic among a given populace. In addition, if the apparent visits by alien beings and their space vehicles should pose any type of threat, it will, as always, be the fire service that is called upon to provide the first line of life-saving defense and disaster mitigation.
On April 25, 1991, radio station KSHE in St. Louis, Missouri, was fined $25,000 by the Federal Communications Commission for broadcasting a mock warning of a nuclear attack during the Persian Gulf War. The seriousness with which the FCC treated this case is indicative of the very real panic that can be created from even illusionary or fictional phenomena. Certainly if these unexplainable events become more prevalent, the possibility of panic could be even greater; and again, the fire department will be the agency called upon to handle the situation. Hence, as we near the year 2000 and move beyond, any comprehensive disaster plan should address the potential for panic and other deleterious effects that might befall a populated area when unexplainable phenomena occur. We will see, as we continue our discussion in this chapter, that widespread blackouts, communication disruptions, and other potentially disastrous conditions have been linked directly to UFO sightings. Hence, fire service leaders who want to ensure that their disaster planning is complete will not neglect an appendix to outline those things that could be done in preparation for the occurrence of such phenomena. Throughout this book, many of the references to actual events are based on the experiences of both of the authors.
However, in this area of UFOs and their potential, we are relying largely on the research and experiences of Chuck Charles Bahme. Chuck has made a considerable study of this subject and is acquiring many publications and VCR tapes to augment his library on this and related phenomena. His interest in UFOs was greatly heightened when Congress in 1969 adopted a law (14 CFR Ch. V Part 1211- Extraterrestrial Exposure) which gave the NASA Administrator the arbitrary discretion to quarantine under armed guard any object, person, or other form of life which has been extra terrestrially exposed.
The very fact that our congressmen believed there was a necessity for such drastic authority made wonder if they had only our astronauts in mind when they adopted it. Could it be applied to anyone who has had a UFO encounter? Whether it has or not is not likely to be a topic for public dissemination. UFO Discussion–Why Now? The subject of UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) was not included in previous editions of this book. The first edition was the Handbook of Disaster Control which Chuck personally published in 1952 following his release from active naval duty in the Korean War. Although his services in the conflict as Security Coordinator for the Chief of Naval Operations involved the creation of a worldwide disaster control organization for the protection of the physical properties of the Navy, it must be admitted that the directives approved for this new organization did not reflect any significant concern for a flying saucer threat to its shore establishment. That was in the 1950s. Now that we are in the 1990s it is doubtful that the UFO potential would be brushed off so lightly by our military security forces. This change of attitude was evidenced as far back as December 24, 1959, when the Inspector General of the Air Force issued the following Operations and Training Order: “Unidentified Flying Objects–sometimes treated lightly by the press and referred to as ‘Flying Saucers’–must be rapidly and accurately identified as serious Air Force business….”
There is no uncertainty about the reality of the war between nations on our planet and the disastrous effects of military actions. The 200 sorties flown every hour against Iraq in the Persian Gulf provided ample evidence of global war’s destructive power. On the other hand, there are many persons who may believe that a discussion of the theoretical harm that could be caused by a real or imaginary invasion of UFOs would be ‘far out!” But this is not so for the thousands of witnesses of unexplained aerial phenomena. To them it is also serious business.
Chuck’s interest in UFOs commenced during the early morning hours of August 26, 1942, while he was roller skating from his house to the nearest fire station a few blocks away; the wail of sirens had signaled his recall to fire duty, and with the stringent blackout orders in effect. Driving was not wise; besides, it was much more exciting to be out in the open where he could see the spectacular aerial “fireworks” that filled the heavens all around him. Few residents of the U.S. had ever experienced a real or imaginary invasion of UFOs like that which occurred in what has become known as
“The Los Angeles Air Raid of 1942.” The Army announced the approach of hostile aircraft and the city’s air raid warning system went into effect for the first time in World War II. The defense to this “attack” is described in dramatic terms in the opening paragraph of this chapter.
But what enemy had been routed? No one ever knew. All the fire fighters saw in the sky were the 15 or 20 moving “things” which seemed to change course at great speed apparently unaffected by the flak from bursting shells all around them. Rumors that one had been shot down were never verified, nor was the explanation that these zig-zagging invaders were weather balloons ever taken seriously. In any event, for Chuck, that unforgettable episode aroused a continuing interest in UFOs, rivaling his professional fields of law and fire protection. The fact that he subsequently was a member of a group whose sighting of a flight of UFOs was then authenticated by airport radar helped to sustain that interest. UFO Background Information With no intention of trying to prove or disprove the authenticity of the numerous UFO encounters often related by very credible witnesses including airline and military pilots, astronauts, police officers, fire fighters, members of Congress, and even a U.S. President, the balance of this chapter will present a brief history and nature of UFOs and their alleged occupants; their widespread sightings over the globe since ancient times; their appearance, propulsion origin, and possible motives for continuing reconnaissance. A quick look at some of the classic accounts of encounters documented in numerous foreign and U.S. publications might help us judge the magnitude of their threat, if any, to social stability, and, if deemed desirable, propose a fire service plan for coping with some of the conceivable catastrophic effects that UFOs could produce on cities and densely populated areas. For readers who already have made up their minds that there is no such thing as a UFO notwithstanding the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, it should be pointed out that there is circumstantial evidence that disastrous effects have already been attributed to UFO activity in more than one nation such as blackouts, including the United States.
Blackout of Northeast U.S. by UFOs
UFOs–What Are They? William Shakespeare put a fitting observation in the mouth of Hamlet, the Prince of Denmark that went like this: “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamed of in your philosophy.” Whether Hamlet was referring to those strange lights or objects that appear in the sky or near the ground and have no known cause, we will never know, but the World Book Encyclopedia defines such things as UFOs. Several theories have been propounded as to what they might be. Some scientists believe that they are of extraterrestrial origin–coming from other planets. Military officers conjecture that they might be alien aircraft. Some attribute them all to natural causes, such as meteors, comets, sundogs, light reflections, marsh gas, ball lightning, even though they must admit that scientists cannot explain all UFO reports in that manner. Still others are inclined to believe that they may be forms from other dimensions which can materialize and dematerialize at will perhaps by making a wavelength or frequency transition so as to become invisible to humans. Some believe they are time travelers from the future.
UFO Classification System Dr. J. Allen Hynek, Northwestern University Professor Emeritus of Astronomy and an advisor to the Air Force’s Blue Book Project. Adopted a very simple classification system based solely upon the manner of observation: 1. Nocturnal lights 2. Daylight disks 3. Close encounters (day or night) 4. Radar readings. He concluded that this system tells us nothing about the nature of the UFOs, but can suggest a means for gathering data. He found that while a large number of such reports were readily identifiable by trained investigators as misconceptions of known objects or events, a small residue (about 1.000) were not. These came from credible witnesses from such widely separated places as Canada. Australia. South America and Antarctica.
He concludes with: “Although I know of no hypothesis that adequately covers the mountainous evidence, this should not and must not deter us from following the advice of Schroedinger: to be curious, capable of being astonished, and eager to find out.”Dr. Hynek has an excellent, well-illustrated article on UFOs in a 1982 book which gives a detailed history of the UFO sightings, together with the reports of some well-known people who made them; including President Jimmy Carter while governor of Georgia. Shapes of UFOs Witnesses have described the shapes of UFOs as anything varying from a sphere to a boomerang. Some have resembled flying saucers with a lid; others a glowing tube; some as semi-spherical with colored apertures; some with reddish-orange glows, or fire-like or sparking discharges. Incredible speed and maneuverability’s not attainable by aircraft of any kind are commonly observed. Many of the books and articles in Appendix H have excellent photographs of these unexplained visitors–photos that have been checked by experts for their authenticity. History of UFOs: For hundreds of years mysterious objects in the sky and strange moving lights have been reported by many people, including the military pilots in World War II who called them Foo fighters, (“Where there’s Foo, there’s Fire”). In the middle of the 1900s flying saucers were increasingly observed in the United States and other countries. Scientists at the University of Colorado hired by the Air Force from 1966 to 1968 to study this type of aerial phenomena could explain most of the UFO reports as a star (Venus), meteor, planet, balloon, rocket, artificial satellite, etc. Sometimes atmospheric conditions, aircraft exhaust trails, or unusual lighting conditions may produce optical illusions that observers thought were UFOs. After investigating more than 12,000 reports, the U.S. Air Force was unable to explain where the unexplained UFOs come from, but apparently concluded that the national security was not threatened by them. The emphasis of the university’s team, headed by Edward U. Condon, seemed to be more concerned with the establishment of the emotional stability or instability of those who reported the sightings than with other evidence.
Psychiatrists have examined the witnesses who claimed to have encountered UFOs and even been taken aboard their craft, such as the two shipyard workers in Mississippi, and found that they are not unbalanced people. “They’re not crackpots. There was definitely something here that was not terrestrial.” Dr. J. Allen Hynek agreed, and added. “Where they are coming from and why they are here is a matter of conjecture, but the fact that they were here on this planet is beyond a reasonable doubt.”
The Air Force after 20 years of being deluged with UFO sightings and spending millions of dollars on their investigation, decided to drop the inquiry business and turned the project over to a Kensington, Maryland, group called NICAP (National Investigation Committee on Aerial Phenomena). This left NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) with part of the task of trying to run UFO sighting reports, including many by its own Apollo and Skylab astronauts.
By 1974 over a score of astronauts saw and photographed UFOs during their flights beyond the earth’s atmosphere. Early in the Apollo 11 mission, which culminated in the moon walk, astronauts Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin, and Michael Collins reported sightings of what seemed to be a UFO during the first half of their flight to the lunar surface. There were many more sightings by U.S. and Soviet Astronauts. On November 11, 1966, Gemini XII astronauts Jim Lovell and Edwin Aldrin said that they saw four UFOs linked together, and on October 12, 1964, three Russian astronauts aboard Voskod reported that they were surrounded by a “formation of fast-moving disc-shaped objects.”
UFO Organizations In addition to NICAP, some of the other organizations that study UFO phenomena are MUFON (Mutual UFO Networks), CAUS (Citizens Against UFO Secrecy), GSW (Ground Saucer Watch), CUFOS (the Center for UFO Studies), and APRO (Aerial Phenomena Research Organization), an Arizona nonprofit scientific and educational organization, founded in 1952.
Why the Secrecy?
In their book, authors Jim and Carol Lorenzen charge that the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) has been closely involved in the collection and suppression of UFO information. “Witnesses to the phenomena have been bribed, coerced, and threatened by the CIA, who wanted valuable evidence given to them alone.” One reason given is that military intelligence may view the UFOs as a tool of either a known or unknown potential enemy. “If these vehicles prove evasive and surreptitious, all the more reason to suspect them…. the probability looms large that the minds behind these vehicles may well be gathering intelligence of their own.”
Another reason for secrecy may lie in the hope of obtaining knowledge relating to advanced propulsion methods and anti-gravity systems before other potential enemies on earth may acquire it. Hence, though many nations are secretly investigating UFOs, they are reluctant to share their findings. Robert Lofton, in his book Identified Flying Saucers, claims that the Air Force became the “goat” in the effort of the CIA to debunk many sightings by pilots, radar technicians and reliable civilian observers. He thinks that the suppression of information about how dangerous UFOs can be is wrong. After citing a case where a child was burned over 50 to 60 percent of her body by a low flying UFO and then taken to an Air Force hospital, no one would explain why her clothes were not burned at the same time. He also describes another burn case in New Mexico and another man who recently received a sledge-hammer like blow that knocked him unconscious by the force field of a 100-foot diameter UFO. “The public ought to be told the danger. Nothing helps rumors and panic more than ignorance.” Major Donald Keyhoe describes in his book “Aliens from Space, The Real Story of Unidentified Flying Objects,” the difficulties he had in 1957 in trying to get the truth from government agencies after he was director of NICAP, the world’s largest UFO research organization with over 30 subcommittees in the U.S. and abroad.
According to some UFOlogists the attempts at cover-up by the CIA extend to destruction of evidence that it could not confiscate. Apparently some of our nation’s important leaders have been denied access to some UFO secrets in the possession of an agency of the United States, the very existence of which is classified above top secret. Unleashed by the policy of Glasnost (greater openness) the Soviet media felt free to include accounts of UFO sightings.
A Soviet Tuss report of October 10, 1989, reported a large shiny ball or disk hovering over a Voronezh park; residents saw the UFO land and three creatures similar to human beings emerged, accompanied by a robot. Apparently the Russians felt no need to suppress this report which was poked fun at in Newsweek and Time magazines but not in U.S. News and World Report: “A scant few decades ago, both the U.S. government and the media treated flying objects as no laughing matter–which even Congress looked into. In 1966, Representative and later President Ford responded to a rash of sightings in his home state of Michigan by calling for, and getting, a House hearing on UFOs.”
Many reasons have been advanced for the purpose of the UFOs visits to our planet. Although some of the persons who apparently have been the subjects of genetic
investigation, such as the family of Whitley Streiber may not agree, the majority of those who have studied possible UFO visitors feel that they are friendly. Mr. Streiber described his experience as terrifying, and believes that these “little figures with eyes that seem to stare into the deepest core of being are asking for something. Whatever it is, it is more than simple information. The goal does not seem to be a sort of clear and open exchange that we might expect; whatever may be surfacing, it wants far more than that. It seems to me that it seeks the very depth of soul; it seeks communion.”
From the thousands of reports he has studied. William Spaulding, aerospace engineer and head of the Arizona-based Ground Saucer Watch, believes that a pattern indicates that UFOs are here on a surveillance mission: the fact that a majority of sightings occur around our military installations, research and development areas leads to the conclusion that a methodical study is being made of the earth and its defensive and offensive capabilities. “The phenomena is not unlike our own space explorations: scout ship survey: soil samples; landing.”
In his book Incident at Exeter, John Fuller discusses the seeming affinity of UFOs for electrical power lines in the northeastern part of the United States. In a later section of this chapter dealing with the effects of UFOs on our terrestrial activities, we will see how this affinity may have been responsible for causing 36 million people to lose power over an area of 8,000 square miles. Because of our recent adventures into space, there are some who speculate that UFOs are more concerned with what we will do there than in settling here. In any event, the Air Force’s official publication (issued by the Government Printing Office 1968) called Flying Objects says that ‘No UFO has been determined to represent a threat to our national security. ‘That conclusion, however, should not rule out less disastrous consequences than the overthrow of our government.

On October 11th, 2019 we attended an astronomy night. We took some photos of the moon through a telescope and found an anomaly on the last photo. We took 3 photos and it only appears on the last.
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
Scottsdale — On Mummy Mountain about 2 feet above the setting sun a picture was taken of the green light.
Not a single cloud was in the sky. Took pictures seconds afterwards and nothing was in the same spot. Pictures were taken on October 10. 2019.
Yosemite National Park – I was on vacation with my family on June 27, 2018. I took some pictures with my cell phone, and most of the another pictures with my Nikon camera with wide lens. Two weeks ago my wife asked me to print some pictures to frame and I found a little dark spot on the right corner of the picture.
Yuba City — At 0615 am Pacific Time at least 15 objects hovering and all of a sudden they started traveling northeast. As they were leaving their cloaking devices quit showing their true exteriors. The video and pictures show multiple UFOs. It seems as soon as they got formed up they started leaving the area. They were also using some kind of cloaking. Pictures were taken on August 23, 2019.
Saw what we thought was a rocket at first in the south east direction and noticed 2 jet streams. It was moving north and flew over. That’s when we realized it was a plane, or jet of some kind. Craft was really small and all white. Moved very fast, it then turned towards the west making a loop around. I lost visual of it on my camera around 1 min and 14 seconds. It’s hard to see because it was small enough to fit 1 person and the white blends in with the clouds. Did not seem like an alien space craft, just an unusual craft to be seen in my area do to being in a high air traffic area. Pictures were taken on October 7, 2019.
Gainesville — On October 19, 2019, at approximately 5:20pm as I stepped out on my deck I noticed an aircraft type object heading northbound. What drew my attention was the shape of the front wings which were angled inward not straight across like an aircraft. Also the object had two bright headlights on the front wings. I did not see any strobe avoidance lights flashing on each wing as an aircraft would have. The other strange thing what really drew my attention was absolutely no sounds was coming from this craft the whole time I observed it pass over my house. I immediately went and grabbed my iPad and pulled up flight radar24 and clicked on the object. I have a pilot’s license and the object was pretty large. Why was their no sound!
Gilbert — I just took the picture on my way home. It went up through the clouds at about 10,000 feet then came back and went away in the blink of an eye. I actually pulled my car and jumped out of the car to try and get a picture. Before I could zoom in it shot straight up into the clouds.
Thought maybe my eyes were playing tricks on me. Then it came back down and I took the picture. Then it shot up again and didn’t reappear on October 4, 2019.
Chicago — I was walking on the Wilson Ave bridge on July 6, 2006. At that high point I could see a blue silver colored discoidal ship that was parked in the highest part of the tree and behind the MacDonald’s restaurant. Cars were passing on Route 59, but on Main Street, there was no one. It made no noise and it was there for about two minutes, and it disappeared in milliseconds. Six months later, that tree dried up and 1 month later it was cut by the town administration. I have put a photo with the location and an old photo (of another sighting) that resembles it.
Cape Elizabeth — In a nutshell, I saw a saucer shaped UFO materializes out of thin air about 25 feet in front of me on January 29, 2015. It was completely silent. I was up on a deck over a sloping back yard, so it was at eye level even though it seemed to be maybe 7 feet off the ground. It hovered for what seemed like a few minutes, and then shot off to the right leaving a trail. It must have dematerialized as it shot away, because it was below the tree line of the woods and it didn’t crash.
Easton — Two lights were seen hovering without sound or movement. A Bright white with blue tint was seen in the clouds.
Looked like two car headlights in the sky but further apart. Lasted 30 seconds at airport nearby but the lights were in the wrong direction. No video but photo..Pictures were taken on October 6, 2019.
New Jersey Light
Pennsauken – On October 5, 2019, a bright light was hovering in single location for over hour before stars/and planets were visible.During one of our events today we spotted this oval shaped object in the sky around 6 pm. We became fixated on it as the show went on, but it did not move at all. The sun was still up. In the attached videos, the size is a bit deceiving. It looks to be tiny, however viewing with your naked eye it appears to be about 2-3 times the size of what Jupiter looks like currently. It also appears this same object was viewed in Swarthmore PA, which is about the same latitude as where we were. It was bright white and did not become dim until about 45 minutes after the sun had gone down. There were no stars in that position on my star app, and if it were, it would have gotten brighter.
Ewing — I spotted a UFO over I-95S as I was passing near Exit 2 for Trenton headed towards the Delaware Rive on September 27, 2019. I had a sighting in Australia in 2005 and have kept my eyes on the sky ever since. I was looking up and noticed something hovering beneath the cloud cover, far lower than the plane traffic directly overhead.
It looked the size and shape of the tic-tac UFOs described by Commander Fravor on the Nimitz in 2004, 40 feet in length, about 20 feet high. At first it appeared relatively solid, dark grey, non-shiny, rough metallic coloring… Didn’t appear to have any wings or appendages.
The thin cloud cover it was hovering underneath broke slightly and light shined through onto the craft. When the light first hit the upper left portion, it appeared to make the dark grey rough metallic exterior more defined and solid. The craft seemed to distort the light and the craft almost looked translucent in the middle with a rough outline remaining. I also could see clearly at that point that it was definitely not a plane and definitely had no wings. I reached for my phone to video and in that instant he UFO was gone.
New York Lights
Cameron — We were driving on a road on an unusually beautiful day. So we stopped the car. I opened the door and took a picture of the fields and hill.
Then noticed multiple small white objects appearing to descend from a crescent type of object (cloud) source at top of the picture. Pictures were taken on August 2, 2019.
Note: The crescent shaped object mentioned by the witness is composed of clouds. Some of these clouds could be aircraft contrails. The small white objects also could be clouds. Thanks to Will Pucket/www.ufosnw.com/newsite/
North Carolina Cylinder
Wilmington — I was walking my dog when I saw something launch from the water that went straight up on May 16, 2019. It then made an almost 90 degree change in direction and then was on a straight line as it was gaining altitude. It looked like something out of a Sci-Fi flick. It almost reminded me of an aircraft they made in the 50’s I believe called a pogo VTOL but it seemed huge. As it was heading towards the sky at maybe a 20% angle, I watched it and was thinking what the heck was that? I ran into the house to grab my camera to take a picture of the vapor trail. I would have not thought to much about it but as you can see by the picture it was going almost straight up then made an almost 90% turn and started to go slightly up till I could not see it anymore. The vapor trail remained for a while and I even took another picture from inside my house.
Brookfield — I don’t know what they are doing, but, they come every couple days and just hover over the area. Bright as I have ever seen in the sky yet. Would really like to have this witnessed by someone that has Pictures were taken on October 10, 2019.
While filming a giant pumpkin drop into an inflatable pool filled with water at an annual Harvest Festival, we noticed, after reviewing the video that an unusual disk-shaped object flew past us seconds after the splash caused by the pumpkin drop. Some who have seen the video think it is a chunk of the pumpkin, a water drop or a bird however, the linear and ascending path of the object seems to contradict such claims. Furthermore, looking at the object frame-by-frame, it seems to be transparent and round/disc-shaped. The video submitted is slowed down as, at regular speed, the object flies by so fast, it is barely noticed.
Swarthmore — My wife first spotted this object and my sons and I immediately came to look on October 5, 2019. It was the color of the moon, yet tinier. We live 15 mines from the PHIL airport and planes were flying around, so if it was probably on radar. But hard to tell how high it was exactly. When I view this through my binoculars and SLR camera it appeared to be a ring of light with small lights in the ring. I took some picture, but it’s hard to see the small light, that looked like a ring of bright white LEDs.
If you zoom on the picture, it very clear that it’s a ring. It moved very slowly across the sky, no sound, no sudden movements, just a bright ring in the sky.
Dempseytown — Strange object spotted in the sky above Venango County, PA. It was a beautiful and warm evening on October 8, 2019 without a cloud in the sky. I was helping my father-in-law with a building and I saw a cigar shaped object sailing through the sky. I took a quick video with my iPhone and tried to zoom when I filmed it. I didn’t watch it or think of the video until later that day but I found when zoomed in, the shape of the object changed at the 6 second mark. It changes direction and then turns back to course. Perhaps it’s a piece of airplane or satellite that was gliding high in the sky, but I felt it should be looked at.
South Carolina Light
Myrtle Beach — So when we pulled into the McDonald’s on 501 between Myrtle Beach and Conway I noticed a very bright light in the sky on September 18, 2019. I instantly knew that it was an alien spacecraft moving or changing shape. My friend thought I was crazy and shot a few pictures. The camera was acting funny and being fuzzy and wouldn’t zoom in. Later he zoomed in and proved that I was right as it was changing shape the whole time. One minute it would be curved like an s in the next minute it would be a straight line then we witnessed two smaller craft come out of the one larger craft and shoot off across the sky at unbelievable speeds I went into the Pizza hut next door I for some reason knew that as soon as we left it would disappear and it was completely gone
Worldwide UFO Sightings
Mount Brydges – On October 4, 2019, husband and I were going to go for an evening walk when I spotted a hovering, glowing white object in the sky. It glowed, but not in the same way a star glows; plus, it was very bright and about an hour too early for stars to start appearing in the sky. It moved very slowly; we were able to watch it for about 30 minutes before it went behind clouds. Viewing it through binoculars, you could see it was egg/oval like. Sometimes disc-like. I zoomed in to take photos with my camera, and zooming in on these you could make out strange light formations on the object. These light formations appeared the same in every photo I took. I’ve included one photo, one zoomed photo, and one video.
Regarding its size: at one point, a jet airplane that was closer to us flew across the sky and it appeared to be about HALF the size of the object. So this object, while far away, must have been quite large!
Galway — I can see these lights on almost any night when it’s clear on September 29, 2019. I have multiple videos. I don’t know where to start but there is one star-like UFO that’s always there, in a northwest direction from my house. It is not in this video, even though I could see it with the naked eye (and my camera was pointed right at it), it didn’t appear on my cell phone video… which is odd…
The main light changes color and pulses, Twice I have seen red streaks of light going into it and disappearing but haven’t been able to film it.
I have seen this star light during the day so I was very excited to see it; I actually started crying because it was so stunning. I was driving and by the time I stopped it was gone. The star light is beautiful and I feel really happy, euphoric even, when I see it (especially the day time sighting). The aliens are peaceful creatures that are afraid and sad for both humans and our planet. We don’t have an ability to hurt them because they are so much more advanced than us, so as long as they stay in the sky they are safe. They have been up there for a long time watching and waiting for humans to be ready to accept their help. They live for a really long time so time means nothing to them, or, our concept of time is very different from theirs– they are remarkably patient. And they aren’t the only types of aliens out there but they are like our cosmic cousins, if that makes sense.
Anyway, hope you enjoy the video; I will keep trying to capture the “Mothership” or whatever it is?
San Andres Calpan, Puebla — During a country trip I took a pictures exhalation of the Popocatepetl Volcano without seeing a bright object on it. Days after, when I reviewed the pictures, I notice a bright light object near the volcano top on one of them. Pictures were taken on April 13, 2013.
Skouras – I have been looking through the photos that I took while on vacation in Morocco on July 3, 2019 and in one of these photos I have noticed an object in the sky above a building. I have taken 3 photos in rapid succession of the same scene, about 1 second apart. The object was present only in second photo, which means that it was there for less than 1 sec, which means that it moved very fast. In large magnification of the photo it can be seen that it moved from left towards right. The exposure was 1/250 of the second.
I was out filming the color sky after a rain storm. I only swathe cylinder afterwards when watching the video on my iPhone 6s. Which is what I use? The object come into view from 25 seconds coming from the left just near the TV aerials are and flies to the right with an slight elevation. Pictures were taken on September 25, 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.
