- UFO reports in the US were low with less than 200 in
April compared to 400 last November. However, Flying Triangle reports
have increased inferring these may not be of extraterrestrial origin.
It is possible that UFOs are maintaining a low profile while our Sun continues
its heavy solar storm activity. The on going May solar display is the
most magnificent in recent memory and a new sunspot record occurred on
May 18, 2000, with 342 sun spots. This number is over double NASA's prediction
of 150 for this solar cycle named "Cycle 23." This activity
is far beyond normal cyclical upswings and may be cause for concern since
tremendous amounts of energy and radiation smash into the Earth's magnetic
field. Our weather may be effected and strong radiation could create communication
and other problems. Large flares and CMEs are expected that could shift
ocean currents and the jet streams effecting our weather patterns. The
US East coast has already had record setting high temperatures followed
by unusually heavy rains. These bursts of energy can be seen in spectacular
displays of the Aurora Borelis (Northern Lights). NASA's ACE spacecraft
recorded an increase in the solar wind velocity that peaked on May 18th.
Heavy sun spot activity is generally followed by Solar Flares. NOAA Space
Environment Center forecasters estimate an 80% probability of M-class solar
flares and a 10% chance of a powerful X-class flare in the near future.
- NEW JERSEY - FLYING TRIANGLES SIGHTED NEAR OCEAN
- UNION BEACH -- I was at Union Beach at about 7:00 PM
in full daylight on May 14, 2000. We were walking along, and my dad thought
he saw a "kite" but later we realized that it was a UFO. It
was a triangle shaped object heading toward the Raritan Bay just south
of New York City on a slant that looked like this "/". It soon
disappeared into the atmosphere and was gone. About 30 seconds after that
I noticed three very small white dots, they were lined up in a triangle.
It was very strange because it was like everything you see on TV. But
it happens to you!
- TUCKERTON - On May 14, at 9:25 PM a triangle shaped object
flew very slow and low over the Garden State Parkway at mile marker 56.
I looked out my driver's side window and saw what I thought was a plane
coming over the tree line. It was triangle shaped UFO and had red lights
under it with a green glow to it. It was not more than 100 feet above
the road and going slow with no noise or vibration at all. I slowed to
about 40 miles an hour and watched it take off to our right. We then noticed
a red/pinkish circle in the distance that the first object was heading
towards now at a very high speed. The triangle object seemed to disappear
as soon as it got to the circle object, because we did not see it anymore.
Then the circle object shot across the sky heading west to east at a blinding
rate of speed and could barely be seen. It then headed back towards the
west and disappeared.
- STAFFORD FORGE - Another witness reports, "A triangle
craft was going across the Parkway very low, and slow at 9:25 PM on May
14, 2000. There was no noise. It had non-blinking red lights underneath
with a yellow/green glow to the rest of it. The triangle speeded up heading
for a hovering red circle like object in the distance. The triangle then
seemed to disappear into the red object. The red circular object then
shot across the sky back to where we first saw the triangle. It then flew
almost out of sight and within seconds back again to where we were. The
police were contacted but said they had no reports from other people.
Editors Note: Tuckerton and Stafford Forge are only five miles apart;
apparently, two separate sets of witnesses noticed the craft. Union Beach
is sixty miles to the north also near the coast. Thanks to Peter Davenport
Director of the National UFO Reporting Center, www.UFOcenter .com.
- SOUTH CAROLINA - SPHERE
- GILBERT COUNTY -- Josh Matthews reports two witnesses
saw a sphere shaped object on May 3, 2000, at 2:30 AM for about seven minutes.
I had been walking along one of my grandmother's forest trails along with
my girlfriend after a party. As we came upon a graveyard area, I heard
a faint whirring sound, like a flute or a whistle of some type. I glanced
up and saw a spherical shaped disc that had a band or a disc that surrounded
it, and spun around in random patterns. This fairly large spherical shaped
object came above our heads, with a band, or a ring surrounding it, that
swirled heavily around with several bright colored lights on it. We stood
in awe as the object hovered for five minutes, and then whirled away to
the north. I believe that it was something not of this world. Thanks

- FLORIDA - LOZENGE-SHAPED LIGHT
- BRADENTON -- Chip Eggerton writes, "I was talking
to a fellow nurse this afternoon, who reports to me that late Friday night
May 12, or early Saturday morning, around 1:30 AM she awakened and looked
out over an area of wetlands near her subdivision. She saw an absolutely
still and silent distinct, orange, capsule or lozenge shaped light hovering.
It was seen to fade out and then reappear at least one cycle. She was
convinced it was not any conventional craft. It left her feeling 'obsessed'
to see it again and she's gotten up several nights since, but has not seen
it again. She lives about a mile east of I-75 off State Route 70. Thanks

- ILLINOIS - FLYING TRIANGLE
- EDINBURG -- On May 7, 2000, I observed a triangular object
in the eastern night sky at 10:12 PM passing north to south. It was about
100 feet isosceles triangle. There was no noise and the craft appeared
to be moving very slowly and very low. I observed the craft for about
- CHICAGO - False radar images have been popping up on
the screens of O'Hare International Airport's air traffic controllers,
forcing pilots to take sudden turns unnecessarily, the Chicago Sun Times
reported in Sunday's May 21, editions. At least a dozen ghost planes"
have been reported during the last few weeks, the newspaper said, citing
documents from the Terminal Radar Approach Control Center in Elgin, and
interviews with controllers. Controllers said that at least a few times,
they have ordered pilots to take sudden turns to avoid what appeared to
be planes on their radar, potentially putting passengers at risk. Editor's
Note: It's interesting that some ground observers are also reporting UFOs
in the general area. While I was in the Air Force, London Control asked
us to intercept a UFO. We were able to get a large radar return on our
airborne radar and pick up its lights visually. There are unidentified
aircraft in our skies causing a traffic safety hazard that should be investigated
by the authorities. When we call air traffic centers to confirm the UFO
reports they are instructed to deny all radar correlation's even to airborne
aircraft. Fortunately, they will direct aircraft out of harms way.
- MINNESOTA - FLYING TRIANGLE
- RANDLE - On May 13, 2000, a large dark triangle was observed
against the clouds with deep five minutes and then seemed to land east
of the highway. I rolled down the windows to listen, but there was no
sound. It moved very slowly, and had to be about 1,000 to 2,000 feet in
width. Thanks to NUFORC www.ufocenter .com.
- MISSOURI - FLYING TRIANGLE
- INDEPENDENCE -- On May 13, 2000, two witnesses observed
a dark triangle with about eight landing lights spanning about one-third
of the way back of each leading edge at 10:00 PM. They had the object
in sight heading east for eight seconds. It was silent but they could
hear a faint aircraft sound far to southwest. Witness #1 is an ex Kansas
City Aviation Department employee who has flown small aircraft. The object
flew at about stall speed, but the witnesses had no visual reference to
determine its altitude or speed. He felt, if they were observing landing
lights, he would guess its altitude was 3,000 feet and the object to be
about the size of a 707 commercial four engine jet aircraft. Witness #2
has seen stealth bombers in the air many times when he worked at Whiteman
Air Force Base. He says, "This the object was not a stealth bomber!"
NUFORC note from Peter Davenport: We highlight this case because we spoke
at length with the witness, who is quite experienced in the aviation field.
He is quite familiar with all types of aircraft, and he reports that the
object witnessed was like no aircraft he has ever witnessed before. Editor's
Note: Ninety minutes later, a similar craft was sighted over Minnesota.
- OKLAHOMA HAS TWO UFO SIGHTINGS
- YUKON -- S. Ritter a MUFON Field Investigator reports
that on May 20, 2000, "My husband and I were walking outside and noticed
a yellowish-glowing light moving out of the northwest, angling towards
the southeast." We watched it for at least 2 to 3 minutes until it
slowly faded out at 9:50 PM as we were observed. We were looking for some
kind of navigational lights that planes have, but there were not any.
It was as bright as Jupiter and it was a quarter inch long at arm's length.
Five minutes later my husband was watching a satellite traveling in a
southeast direction when all of a sudden, an unidentified flying object
appeared to dart across the path of the satellite at a right angle. The
light trail from the object was in a forward motion, not blinking, but
emitting forward pulses of light as it traveled in a northerly direction
and disappeared. Thanks to S. Ritter of Yukon. Bbbritter
- CALIFORNIA - FLYING TRIANGLE
- CARPINTERIA -- On May 8, 2000, I witnessed a black triangular
craft fly over our house near the coast three times in the course of about
a half an hour starting at 10:00 PM. My father saw it first, and called
me outside. After waiting for a couple of minutes, it showed up again,
cruising slowly and silently, directly over the house. The object was
about five hundred feet high, and I could see its structure. There were
lights along the two leading edges, and the back was slightly inverted.
I would estimate that the object was about 300 feet across. After we
lost sight of it, we waited, and it returned directly over us within five
minutes, this time headed in the opposite direction as if it had made a
U turn. We waited again, and ten minutes later we saw it make a turn towards
Foothill Mountains. It usually flies over from 9:45 to about 10:30 PM
on clear nights and comes directly over our house. It seems to want to
make contact of some sort. Last year around this time of year, the same
thing was happening. My father works for the county of Santa Barbara,
and I'm a junior at Carpinteria High School, 16 years old. We'll keep you
updated. Thanks to NUFORC www.ufocenter .com.
- CANADA - FLYING TRIANGLE
- KAMLOOPS, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- On May 8, 2000, I was sitting
at my friend's back porch in Juniper having two cans of beer with my girl
friend when we noticed a large triangular object hovering in the mountains
about six kilometers away. We called in my buddy and the three of us watched
it for about five minutes when it separated into four triangular shaped
craft. These craft had a light on each side and a big one in the middle.
It appeared they emitted an aura that was darkest at the lights and the
brightest around the ship. This aura changed color, when the lights changed
color. Then at the same time a really powerful strobe light lit up the
mountains for a few seconds. The ships formed into one object, shot up
into the sky, and disappeared at 9:05 PM. A similar craft was seen on
May 6 at 9:18 PM hovering low over another witness's home with a giant
white light in the middle that shown down on the witness. Thanks to NUFORC
and Peter Davenport.
- BILL BEAN POSSIBLE IMPLANTS?
- A possible implant found in Bill Bean was recently analyzed
by Derrel Simms and his colleagues. The chip after being opened appears
to display integrated circuitry. In their opinion, the chip is a device
for thought manipulation and serves as a monitoring device that would let
the Government know when UFOs and ETs were in proximity of the implanted
individual. If you would like to see a photo of the implant, go to www.alienhunter.
Thanks to Bill Bean. Editor's Note: Bill Bean regularly takes amazing
videos of UFOs in the Baltimore, Maryland area.
- FRENCH UFO STUDY IN BOSTON GLOBE
- Sunday's Boston Globe Newspaper, May 21, 2000, printed
an article on UFOs entitled: "UFO Theorists Gain Support Abroad,
But Repression at Home " "High-level officials - including retired
generals from the French Institute of Higher Studies for National Defense,
a government-financed strategy planning agency - recently took a giant
step in openly challenging skeptics about UFOs." "In a report
based on a three-year study, they concluded that ''numerous manifestations
observed by reliable witnesses could be the work of craft of extraterrestrial
origin'' and that, in fact, the best explanation is ''the extraterrestrial
hypothesis.''" "The findings are contained in a 90-page report
titled ''UFOs and Defense: What Should We Prepare For?''" "The
study's originators are four-star General Bernard Norlain, former commander
of the French Tactical Air Force and military counselor to the prime minister;
General Denis Letty, an air force fighter pilot; and Andre Labia, former
head of the National Center for Space Studies, the French equivalent of
NASA." "Mitchell joins five-star Admiral Lord Hill-Norton, the
former head of the British Ministry of Defense, in calling for congressional
fact-finding hearings into the UFO question." The Joint Army Navy
Air Force Publication 146 threatens to prosecute anyone under its jurisdiction
- including pilots, civilian agencies, merchant marine captains, and even
some fishing vessels - for disclosing reports of sightings relevant to
the US. See the full article at: http://www.boston.com/dailyglobe2/142/focus/UFO_theorists_gain_support_abroad_
- DETECTION AND IDENTIFICATION OF UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECTS
- Using Existing Technology MUFON's John Schuessler writes,
"For the past fifty years, civilian UFO organizations have been collecting,
categorizing and archiving UFO reports. By using proper investigative
techniques they have amassed an incredible amount of information. A major
portion of this database is drawn from eyewitness testimony, supplemented
by films, videotapes, and electronic signal detection. The various US
Government projects Grudge, Blue Book, et al. used the same techniques.
As a result, political and scientific entities have casually dismissed
the evidence as inconsequential. All the while, various agencies of the
US government and other countries were using all sorts of advanced technologies
for Cold War purposes. Few of these advanced technologies were used to
address the UFO issue. The purpose of this paper is to urge responsible
governmental organizations to reassess their position and to allow all
available technologies to be used to eliminate the UFO mystery. See http://home.earthlink.net/~rcollins632/reports/js_detect_ident_ufos.htm

- FILER'S FILES #19, ABDUCTEES REPORT SIMILAR AILMENTS
- MUFON Maryland State Director, Bruce Maccabee, Ph.D.,
an e-mail commenting on last weeks Filer's Files discussion that many abductees
have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Fibromalgia and similar yuppie type
diseases." Robin an abductees reported abductees suffer from several
similar ailments that usually involve severe fatigue and pain. Taking magnesium
according to England's University of Southampton helps CFS and possibly
Epstein Barr. Most of the diseases are relatively new. Admittedly, we
have very sketchy evidence to date, but many of the abductee ailments point
to weak immune systems that seemed to first develop about 1950, the time
of the first UFO waves. We do know that UFO propulsion systems develop
massive electromagnetic effects that could cause weaknesses in the human
- Dr. Maccabee writes that from listening to Dr. Gabriel
Merkin, a doctor in the Washington. DC area who is on the radio and publishes
a monthly newsletter, I have learned that "fibromyalgia" is
a complex, medical sounding term for "we don't really know what the
problem is." He claims that long term use of antibiotics can sometimes
or often cure the problem because it is caused by an infection. Merkin
says that there are bacteria that cause known diseases which, however,
cannot be cultured. The newly discovered "nanobacteria" could
also be involved. Thus, if a test is made there may be no positive result
of the attempt at culture and no causative agent discovered. Yet. Long-term
use of antibiotics can cure the problem. (Note: he was on the forefront
of cure of stomach problems with antibiotics long before the gastroenterologists
agreed or "admitted" that a bacterium caused most ulcers.) He
claims that some arthritis can be cured by antibiotics. Anyway, he probably
would suggest something to take for several months or maybe up to a year.
Main point: If this ladies "fibromyalgia" is actually caused
by an infection one can raise the question, do some abductees contract
illness from contact or close\ association with ET's? And, if so, do ET's
contract illnesses from us? Your comment about the immune system is well
taken. The "quality" of any persons immune system depends upon
his/her state of health, both physically and mentally. It could be that
some abductees contract "ET diseases" (or diseases associated
with ET contact) because their immune systems happen to be at a low point
at the time of contact. Worth looking into! Thanks to Bruce Maccabee
- Len Kasten writes that the fact that people suffering
from these ailments have low magnesium does not necessarily imply that
the low magnesium is causing the symptoms. What it does imply is that
they are perhaps infected with a microorganism that is magnesium dependent,
and that sucks up all the available magnesium in their blood, and thereby
puts them into a low magnesium state. It just happens that some of the
new emerging viruses are magnesium dependent, according to Dr. Len Horowitz
in his book "Emerging Viruses." Under these conditions, to take
magnesium supplements is simply to feed these organisms. This situation
requires further study. Thanks to Len Kasten email@example.com
- Robin writes, "God bless you George for including
me in your newest file. Maybe the world will hear and maybe there is hope
for people who have been ABDUCTED. You George are an angel for us. You
are the light at the end of the dark tunnel. Although I am an abductee,
I NEVER gives up hope. Hope is what leads to faith and faith to belief.
We are justified by Faith and Saved by Grace. God has a plan, you know.
I believe no matter what has happened to me that God is in charge. It
is what keeps me going from day to day with all the suffering I endure.
May God's grace be forever upon you. Thanks to Robin
- Richard M. McVannel writes: George, I have just read
the item in your Filer's Files #19 from Robin. I too, suffered for nearly
a year before I was released by my doctor with Epstein Barr virus associated
with mononucleosis (mono). It took nearly three weeks for a diagnosis
and in the mean time I looked like a banana, even the whites of my eyes.
I was told that the virus is associated with third world countries and
was questioned to no end about my contact outside the US and/or people
from a third world country. Of course neither of these applied. My wife
and I discussed the possibility of abduction and the contact that may have
occurred at that time. I am an abductee. I have had abductions since
I was a small child, and have conscience recall of the earlier episodes.
The abductions I have recall of have all been friendly, and not the usual
type associated with violence. What is so unusual is that it is not very
common for one to contract a virus like Epstein Barr. It can attach itself
to any number of fatal diseases and I was told I was very lucky that I
only had the mono. Therefore, our conclusion is that I contracted the
virus during an abduction experience. Further, my wife and I attended the
MUFON International Symposium in Grand Rapids that year, and when we returned
home it was miserably hot. We turned our ceiling fans on for the night
and went to bed. In the morning the fans were off when we awoke. Neither
of us had been awake or up in the night and didn't even stir until the
alarm went off Monday morning. This is unusual also, since either one
or both of us are up during night, every night. About 10 days later, my
wife came down with a flu like illness, so I finally took her to the doctor.
- What we found out was startling. She had another virus
similar to the Epstein Barr, but not as dangerous. What she had could
not have been contracted from me, per the doctor. (What she had, only
about 1% of the world population has contracted, but is suspected in about
10%) Also at that time they did an ultra sound on her internal organs and
everything was normal. This was early August. In November she had a gull
bladder attack, followed by a more severe attack the middle of December.
The doctors told her that the gull bladder had to be removed before it
ruptured. When the gull bladder was removed, it was shriveled and full
of stones. Remember now that back in July, this was a normal gull bladder
with no stones. The only possibility the doctor could come up with was
that she was pregnant, as this only occurs in pregnant women or those that
have just given birth. Now, we all know that my wife cannot get pregnant,
so what other explanation is there? Our answer is abductions. Needless
to say, I was elated to see my thoughts confirmed by someone else, that
abductions are involved in these strange illnesses. I would appreciate
other reports of this nature and contact by those who have had this experience.

- ITALY UNDER MUSSOLINI STUDIED UFOs
- Last week Italian national TV station RAI DUE the show
'I fatti voostri' broad cast a show about UFOs in Italy prior to World
War II. On the show were two Italian Ufologists, the editors of the magazine
"UFO notizziario" (UFO messenger). They discussed the connection
between Fascist leader Benito Mussolini and UFO's. Back in 1933, Mussolini
had gathered together scientists headed by G. Marconi and maybe formed
the first worldwide secret organization for exploration of the UFO phenomena.
The organization was active from 1933 to 1940 and they gathered many documents
and pictures. Ufologists showed two telegrams from 1933, where Mussolini
is ordered censorship of UFO data and the releasing of any UFO information.
Mussolini especially forbid the spreading of information about a UFO landing
near Milano (??). They discussed a remarkable speech Mussolini gave in
1941, before the US became involved in World War II. Italy and joined
with Hitler and Germany and wanted to keep the US our of the war. Mussolini
said, "The US should care more about attack from an extraterrestrial
civilization which could land on Earth in the craft that people have never
seen, than about the Axis forces." At that time, that speech had
not been understood as a serious one. In the show, the pictures, films
and other documents were shown. An Italian fighter plane intercepted an
UFO between Ravenna and Rome in August of 1936. There was a multiple UFO
sighting of a cigar and two discs over Mestre and Venice. Mussolini gave
all the documents to German experts. Thanks to AGETI_USENET_OP Dario B.
