- RHODE ISLAND FLYING TRIANGLE
- NARRAGANSETT-- The witness reports that on July 4, 2001,
we were setting off a few fireworks on a cliff by the ocean shore at dusk.
We observed a Roman candle set off behind us and turned to watch its smoke
trail and saw a trapezoid-shaped, black object. It was moving slowly and
silently at an altitude of no more than 2,000 feet at 9:00 PM. I called
out to my two sons, a friend, and my nephew who all watched with me as
the "object" continued to move east out over the ocean in between
the haze and dark clouds at a speed of no more than 50 or 60 mph. The
object then accelerated to about 100-150 mph and then seemed to vanish
within the clouds. We were all deeply awed, and all of us reported seeing
the exact same shape, height, and speed of this object--we all dismissed
it as too large to be a "stealth fighter or bomber," or even
a large dirigible. We estimate it to be about 80 or 90 feet tall and about
600 feet the length of two football fields. Thanks to Peter Davenport
- NEW JERSEY HIGH SPEED CRAFT
- OLD BRIDGE -- Sam Sherman the President of Independent
International Pictures writes, I have had several impressive UFO sightings
over the years and so am always watchful of unusual phenomena in the skies.
On the morning of July 2, 2001, I was driving north on route 9 from Old
Bridge, New Jersey and was passing through Sayreville as I spotted what
looked like the bright metal edge of a plane in the sky. Only this object
was flying across the sky in front of me at least five or six times the
speed of the average plane in the sky. The object passed over the road
in front of me, at what looked like a sixty-degree angle to the ground
from my perspective in my car. The object headed from east. I thought
to myself: "that plane is really flying fast." Moments later
what looked like the same object headed from east to west in front of me
at about the same speed. I could only see a bright metal edge, no wings,
or anything else raised from its surface. Seeing it closer and flyin!
g back in the opposite direction so fast made me wonder what it might be.

- PENNSYLVANIA MOVIE WITH MEL GIBSON
- DOYLESTOWN -- Bill Hamilton writes Mel Gibson is playing
a farmer in M. Night Shyamalan's movie "Signs," which will be
filmed outside Philadelphia starting in September. After a lengthy search
of area farmland, producers have decided to film the movie at Doylestown's
Delaware Valley College, a private four-year school known for its agricultural
program. "Everyone knows he's coming and all the girls are waiting,"
said Mitzi Weikel, a student working on campus this summer. The college
has signed an agreement to rent 100 acres of its cornfields through the
end of the year. Filming is expected to start in September. Gibson plays
a farmer who discovers large circles and other patterns in his fields.
- ILLINOIS NEON BLUE EGG SHAPED OBJECT FELL FROM SKY
- COUNTRYSIDE -- An egg shaped object with a bluish green
color was seen falling from the sky straight down on July 1, 2001. At
first it was small but increased in size as it came closer to the ground
and veered northwest for 2-4 seconds at 10:44 PM. It disappeared in low
clouds. The object was larger than a duel prop airplane and it had a lot
of mass and color. There were no flashing lights on it and it was flying
too slowly to be a meteoroid. It had a neon blue trail and as it came
to the ground it leveled out to 35 degree angle heading for the ground
and disappeared about 400 feet above the ground. It was large enough to
make a loud crashing noise but there was no sound at all.
- NORMAL -- The witness reports, my friend and I both saw
something as we were walking across the street on July 1, 2001, at 10:30
PM. We saw an extremely bright greenish blue light appear directly in
front of us in the middle of the sky and shot rapidly down and disappeared
as quickly as it had originally appeared. There was a bright red trail
behind the object and it made no noise. We realize that today's date is
close to the 4th but we know that what we saw was not a firework of any
kind. We saw something strange that but we both know was NOT a firecracker,
airplane, shooting star, or comet. We are not crazy, we are just convinced
we have seen something that warrants some sort of an explanation. NUFORC
spoke to the witness and found him to be a quite credible and serious-minded.

- TENNESSEE FRIED DEAD BIRDS FALL OUT OF SKY
- HARTSVILLE -- Ron Hannifin writes that on July 6, 2001,
at about 10:45 AM, radio station WJKM and CMR (Country Music Radio), was
knocked off the air by a very powerful strange energy blast! There was
a crystal clear blue sky, no clouds, nor lightning! All the radio station's
lines were knocked out, several power transformers were blown, ISDN and
all phone lines in the area were knocked out! The radio station transmitter
was damaged; all computers and electronic equipment were damaged. In the
back of the radio station were DEAD FRIED BIRDS! Their wings, tails, and
feet severely burned. Many of the birds were still alive but badly burned.
Some kind of large electrical or plasma seems to have struck the area.
Some blame an offline nearby nuclear plant. Witnesses claim to have seen
a triangular shaped craft overhead. Silent black helicopters at all hours
of the night and military C-130's have been observed heading in as if to
land or leaving the area nose up like they ha! ve just taken off. Some
people speculate the HAARP or government E/M-P facilities may be responsible.

- IOWA ORANGE LIGHT
- My name is David and I am a student at Iowa State University
in Ames Iowa. On July 9, 2001, about 12:30 AM, I witnessed something from
my 3rd floor balcony almost directly overhead. I saw a whitish/orangish
light (orb) moving southeast. The intensity of the light was about that
of a medium, to medium-bright, star. The light with the orange hue was
constant and not blinking or pulsing. It was very high and appeared to
be moving at a very high rate of speed, considering its altitude. At first,
I thought this light was a very bright satellite. There are two streetlights
on the street below my apartment, which light up the area to such an extent
that I normally cannot view satellites from my balcony. Last night, it
was darker than usual and I could see more stars than usual. With that
said, the following explains why I still do not think this was a satellite.
- I was following the path of the orange orb for about
10 seconds, during which time it was traveling from the NW to the SE.
The first strange thing I noticed is that it didn't appear as though the
orb traveled in a perfectly straight line. It seemed to have a slight
curve. I was only using the surrounding stars as a reference, so I cannot
say that it had a curve with a high degree of certainty. The second thing
I noticed really made me question his object. After 10 seconds, and only
cutting through about 5-10 degrees of the sky, the object got very small
and disappeared. From the time it started shrinking, to the time it vanished,
was one-second. I've never seen a satellite disappear that quickly. This
was not a meteor since it had no tail and wasn't "shooting" downward
and it didn't look like it was burning up. It also lasted at least 10
seconds (maybe 15) which is longer than any "shooting stars"
I've witnessed. It was also traveling slower than any shooting stars.
! It was just a strange orange ball moving at a high constant speed that
simply disappeared. I'm not sure what I saw, I just know I've never seen
anything like it before. Thanks to Dave
- MISSOURI "ALUMINUM" LOOKING TRIANGLE "AIRCRAFT
- INDEPENDENCE -- On July 4, 2001, it was still very light
- I was in my back yard and heard a very loud, low "jet aircraft"
sound. I was startled as it seemed very low, very close and very loud.
The sound "appeared" immediately before the sighting at 7:30
PM. I looked up and saw it coming into my view over the treetops; it passed
over my head and I watched it fly out of sight. It never hovered and it
was not moving at an abnormally fast speed and the movement was very smooth.
For as loud and large as it was, it didn't seem to be going very fast.
The sighting took about 15 sec. It was in the shape of a triangle - a "brushed
aluminum" looking material - with 2 flashing red lights on the tip
of the "wings". It was moving forward. It had a wide "accordion"
design on the underside. It was a very "strange" experience and
I "knew" immediately that I had just seen something very unusual.
I do believe I saw something that is NOT human.
- CALIFORNIA DISC OBSERVED
- SACRAMENTO -- ISUR reports that on Friday, July 6, 2001,
at about 6:00 PM, the witness stepped outside of her home in Carmichael
and noticed a round object hovering over the treetops to the east. The
witness indicated that the object was bright and shiny, but appeared to
be rotating as it changed from shiny to an almost black color. She observed
it for at least 5+ minutes and added that there appeared to be no lights
or other structure, just a round object. There was a haze or some sort
of aura around it, and no sound was detected. She estimated it may have
been a few hundred feet above the treetops, perhaps a mile away, and about
the size of an aspirin held at arm's length. The object seemed to fade
into the clouds after about 5+ minutes of observation. After this event,
the witness contacted the local news station and was advised that no other
reports had been received. This witness provided ISUR with a brief but
concise and well written report, she was willing to coo! perate in a more
in-depth investigation with MUFON of California. Although she had been
a 'skeptic,' but knew what she saw! Thanks to Tom Sheets, ISUR Board,
- CANADA MYSTERY LIGHTS OVER LAKE ERIE, ONTARIO
- MORGAN'S POINT -- SASSY1 reports that the witness business
professional, Dirk Vander Ploeg was taking his usual early morning walk
along the shores on Lake Erie, when eyes were drawn to two bright objects
in the southeast skies. One brighter than the other was conducting maneuvers
that could not have been a terrestrial aircraft. Vander Ploeg immediately
returned to his residence, found his camcorder, and returned to the shoreline,
where the two unknown objects were videotaped maneuvering for an hour.
The objects appear on video to be a planetary alignment, until they start
moving in two opposite directions -- then returning back to their original
locations over the Lake. At approximately 11:00 a.m., Rob McConnell, the
host of THE 'X' ZONE RADIO SHOW, and a personal friend of Vander Ploeg
arrived and was shown the video tape. After viewing the footage, McConnell
placed several calls to colleagues in Canada and the United States to see
if there was any explanation for the strange maneuvers or if in fact, the
objects were terrestrial. The following contact information can be used
for Dirk Vander Ploeg and Rob McConnell. firstname.lastname@example.org To:email@example.com.
Thanks to SASSY1.
- UNITED KINGDOM
- YEOVIL -- UFO Magazine reports two gentlemen observed
and photographed nine UFOs which arrived one by one, before commencing
to merge with one another and perform some dazzling acrobatics on June
28, 2001. These were bright, orange-coloured objects strikingly similar
to those seen, photographed and videotaped over Fleetwood, Lancashire.
- YORK -- BBC Radio York residents reported UFO activity
of large flying triangles between June 15 and July 15. Accounts had also
appeared in the local press. Journalists have been told there were no
RAF or joint-NATO exercises that could be responsible for the sighting
reports, so everyone is asking the same question: what could they possibly
be? An interesting video tape of a red flying wing, anomalous object filmed
over London on July 1, 2001, by Christopher Martin can be observed at the
UFO Magazine website. Thanks to Graham W. Birdsall Editor of UFO Magazine
- Editor's Note: I encourage that videos and photos should
be placed on web sites and in magazines. I have found that they are often
the same craft described by other witnesses at various locations through
out the world. NATO began giving various Soviet aircraft specific designations.
Large bomber aircraft had designations such as Bison or Bear. Fighters
use various designations beginning with F such as Flogger and Firebar,
etc. I suggest UFO organizations come up with similar designations. D
for disc, T for triangles etc. I suggest that many UFOs visit various
countries around the world. A better designation of types is needed.
The red flying wing or V shaped craft might be called Von Rictofen. This
same craft was apparently seen over both New Jersey and New York City on
June 2, 2001
- RUSSIA CROP CIRCLE
- MOSCOW -- The [alien] ones have landed in a field five
kilometers from the city, leaving one of their unmistakable signs, that
is, the 'crop circles'. There is no doubt, according to UFO researcher
Vieceslav Paranuk, a teacher of mathematics at the University of Majkop
in the Caucasus. The Russian Ministry of Civil Protection has already
established a commission to study the UFO phenomenon. "A man would
not be able to make such circles without someone noticing, and for me it
is verification of the Aliens," said Paranuk in the daily newspaper,
Izviestia. Investigators found a large circle some 19 meters in diameter
that was encircled by four others, each about five meters in diameter,
To the center of the larger circle, there was a 10 cm wide hole 40 cm deep.
- This is the second time in four years crop circles have
manifested in the zone and perhaps they have been left by a spaceship,
whose weight would have traced the larger circle while the four lateral
ones would have been the result of landing gear mechanism of the craft.
The news of the return of the aliens has received great prominence. Russian
television has shown the images of the ears of corn skewed in a clockwise
direction, but left nearly intact. The manifestation of crop circles is
an inexplicable phenomenon, without anyone ever having found one convincing
explanation, in many countries of the world. The earliest crop circles
or circular marks where recorded in English fields in 1647, and were thought
to be the work of the devil. Later circles in the 1970s were very simple,
but gradually evolved in the 1990s into complex pictograms composed of
lines, angles and spirals. Thanks to Gerry Farshores - www.100megsfree4.com/farshores/

- AUSTRALIA FLYING TRIANGLE
- The witness reports, "We were sitting outside having
a game in the back yard on July, 2, 2001, we all quickly glanced up as
something reflected into our eyes almost stopping our vision for a bit."
There was a triangular (flat equilateral triangle) craft moving across
the sky at 11:30 PM. We live next to an airfield but we didn't know what
to make of it. Therefore, we carried on playing our game. Fourteen minutes
later it came back again, but going the other way. It would occasionally
float across and then vanish again, but this time it was closer.
- We rung the airfield and they said that there was only
something reflecting and they couldn't make out what it was. We started
to get very nervous and scared so we went inside and observed outside while
watching TV. Nothing happened until about 17 minutes later when the TV
went off, the phone started ringing and the fax came through with all types
of weird stuff. I have the fax to prove it. Our cell phones went dead
and we saw it again but this time it was hovering right over our house,
it slowly picked up speed flew over some trees and we never saw it again.
We live in the country so there are a few valleys it could have gone down
and hidden. We saw a group of jets fly over the valley just as the craft
