- OKLAHOMA DISK WITH PORTALS
- GRAND LAKE -- Jean Seifried wrote that on April 27, 2002,
about 10:45 PM, I received a call from Mr. X, one of my UFO watcher's.
He was out at Grand Lake O'The Cherokee watching a UFO for about two hours
searching the coastline. It was a round object hovering just above the
shoreline and about 100 feet inland three miles south of Sail Boat Bridge.
The UFO appeared to have a row of round portals around the outer edge each
spaced maybe ten feet apart, but they were not lit up, although they may
have been some objects or equipment, rather than portals. The UFO had a
red bottom and a blue top, a possible reflection of the red and blue lights
revolving around it. He was observing from a high hill overlooking a large
horse-shoe-shaped cove on the lake, and the UFO was below him. He watched
balls of light leave from a hole that opened in the top. They zigzagged
back and forth along the edge of the water in large 100 feet or more, zigzags,
"like they were looking for something in a military search pattern.
The larger UFO followed and then moved 500 feet back from the shore and
when it got to the eastern point of the cove it moved toward over the balls
of light. He yelled, "Hold it! it's coming in to pick them up. There
they go into the thing from the bottom, up into it. Oh, oh. It's leaving.
It's going up, straight up, fast!" There was a big flash from the
bottom of the craft just before it began to rise up, "like maybe it
was revving up for the assent."
- By this time my husband Richard and I had reached the
front of our porch to look. Mr. X said, "Look just to the left of
the big dipper. It's almost gone." We were looking but at first we
saw nothing in the clear sky. Suddenly we saw a slow but short "strobe-quality"
flash just a bit larger than the largest planets. Then ten seconds later
another one higher and further north than the first. Then six seconds later,
another one, until we saw five in all, moving north and up to the left
side of the dipper. Mr. X was exclaiming something with each blink, just
as we were. We were obviously watching the same thing from perhaps a hundred
miles distance. The light was definitely not an aircraft light and was
brilliant and irregular in timing of the flashes, each one becoming a bit
dimmer than the last. Richard saw it as less than brilliant white, more
cream color light. But clearly we all were watching the same thing. Thanks

- COLORADO MOTHERSHIP PASSES OVER COUPLE'S CAR
- SAN JUAN MOUNTAINS -- Anne Miller of the Star Beacon
reports that a young woman in her 20s, whose parents she knows, told me
about a dramatic April 4, 2002, UFO sighting in Southern Colorado. The
woman and her boyfriend were driving home from Durango to Pagosa Springs
at 9:45 PM, when they saw a gigantic ball of light over the San Juan Mountains
near Chimney Rock. The woman said it was terribly bright, and difficult
to watch for very long. It stayed in one spot for five minutes and appeared
to be a huge disc with an incredibly bright light. The woman said. "We
thought it was really big - at least the size of a football field, twice
as large as a full moon and was many times larger than a normal airplane."
"Other car lights were coming at us," explained the woman, "and
as soon as we saw headlights the UFO would turn into something like a plane's
blinking lights." She said, "It was as though the UFO were trying
to disguise itself, and the strange thing was no car ever passed us on
the highway and we never saw what happened to the cars."
- We felt like we were on the highway by ourselves. We
watched for 10 to 15 minutes but we didn't pull over and just continued
driving. "We both kept getting surges of weird energy, that were like
huge rushes the whole time we saw it," she said. "We felt really
weird since it was so powerful and I was almost crying." "The
UFO was kind of greenish-blue with red lights on it," the woman added.
"There were little ships hovering above and below it." "The
object approached and flew right over our car and I could see hundreds
and hundreds of windows on it," said the woman. Then it just moved
on, and we didn't see it anymore. The next day she called her parents and
told them about the sighting. I asked, "If there had been any missing
time, but she said no, they got home at the time they expected." However,
there was one incident worth mentioning. The woman had been pregnant, and
just a few days after the sighting she experienced a miscarriage. Whether
the miscarriage was due to the energy surges during the sighting or something
completely unrelated is not known. Thanks to Anne Miller Editor/Publisher

- SHUTTLE STS 109 STRANGE ANOMALY MAKES 90 DEGREE TURN
- In reviewing the clip of the space walk incident from
STS-109 Jeff Challender, believes the anomaly made a 90 degree left turn!
He says, "I couldn't believe my eyes, I must've played the tape over
and over at least a hundred times! I just put it in a loop mode and let
it play! "That event also included a high speed pass by the same,
or similar object, originating from the point where the first one disappeared.
I feel that this event is the most important evidence for unknowns since
the STS-96 footage of three years ago. I'm going to start quoting some
of the astronauts and cosmonauts that have seen stuff. You never said they
were alien just that something not ice was moving by. I believe the Shuttle
cameras focus everything from a few inches away until infinity. Whatever
is there is in focus except within a couple of inches from the lens. Anyone
can pretty well pick out ice crystals compared to something bigger. The
Astronauts at Kennedy Space Center indicated the Hubble repair now provides
much clearer images. They are seeing many new galaxies. Thanks to Jeff
- NEW HAMPSHIRE DISK CRAFT WITH ROTATING LIGHTS
- NASHUA -- The witness reports seeing a circular disk
that had pulsating lights on both sides that definitely seemed to alternate
sides and make a circular motion on April 16, 2002. He says, "I was
on my deck with my wife at 10:24 PM, last night and we were looking up
at the stars, the Little Dipper in particular. I saw something that seemed
to be circular or disk shaped and had yellowish/orange lights that pulsated
in a circular motion around the object. There were no lights in the front
or back of the disk. There were about four or five "panels of individual
light" on each side and went like I said in a clockwise direction
around the object, with only one panel lit at one time. The object was
about the size of two full moons when the moon is high in the sky. It traveled
a large distance across the sky in 3 to 4 seconds, which is the entire
duration of the sighting. It traveled the distance of maybe 30 full moons
in a straight line and seemed to vanish. It made no sound at all and almost
appeared translucent, the lights were the only things I saw. At first I
thought it was a meteor grazing the atmosphere, but when my wife also saw
the pulsating lights, it seemed to be a craft, not a meteor. The object
seemed to vanish into thin air. I had an unobstructed view in the direction
it was traveling when it disappeared. My wife confirmed the lights were
pulsating. I am also within four miles of a small airport and the FAA tracking
center for the East Coast. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC http://www.ufocenter.com.

- NEW YORK BOOMERANG
- BUFFALO -- The witness an amateur astronomer for 20 years
reports he was observing the new planet configuration on April 18, 2002,
at 9:45 PM. During his observations he states, "This seven light boomerang
shaped formation appeared out of the southeast moving northwest; as I looked
closer, I thought it may be a formation of jets from the Niagara Falls
Air Base." The was one craft darkly illuminated that made no sound,
There were seven white lights, a bit brighter than a normal magnitude star
lights moving like a flock of geese. It faded from view after about 15
seconds, just as it appeared. I'm still upset. The angle of elevation was
about 30 degrees. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC http://www.ufocenter.com.
- NEW JERSEY QUICKLY MOVING STAR LIKE LIGHTS
- BYRAM --The witness reports, "My wife and I were
watching the moon and stars above northwestern New Jersey on April 16,
2002, when we noticed a particularly bright star moving slightly in the
sky." It was visible through some tree branches at first, so we changed
position for a clearer view (thinking it might be the tree branches giving
the appearance of movement). It maintained its pattern of movement; slightly
vertical and slightly horizontal, and would periodically flash blue and
red. We don't believe it could have been an airplane, since it was hovering
in position; a plane would have visibly moved across the sky. I went into
the house and got our video camera, and we taped the object for 10 minutes
or so, zooming in as much as 32x. With the zoom on, we could see it growing
in size and then shrinking suddenly, as if it were "pulsing."
We taped our house and lights visible from the World Trade Zone for reference.
After 10 to 15 minutes we went back inside. Fifteen minutes later I went
back to look for the object and it was gone. I filed a police report around
10:00 PM, after checking the Internet to see if it might have been a planet
or other conspicuous object. NUFORC
- STERLING -- A 41 year old female witness who works as
a manager, reports seeing a small bright light dip low, arc up, and disappear
in only three seconds on April 5, 2002, at 6:55 PM. The object was star
like flying at 1000 feet and moving very quickly. Its actual size was 11
to 30 feet and it appeared white, or grey_lead_silver. The sky was overcast.

- FLORIDA DISK CIRCLES THEN EXPLODES
- MELBOURNE BEACH -- At sunset, an object was seen at nearly
90 degrees, (straight up) that was a bright bluish sphere on April 18,
2002. The sphere had a bright pinpoint object orbiting around it for about
a five-second period. At 8:11 PM, the sphere exploded, in a shower of lights,
like fireworks, except very high in sky. Binoculars and a telescope were
being used to see the orbiting point, and the main object looked like a
bright star or planet. The witness stated, "I could see the explosion
through binoculars, there was falling glowing debris, then nothing."

- ALABAMA DISK
- BIRMINGHAM -- The witness reports, "There was a
disk hovering about 20,000 feet in the air on April 3, 2002, at 9:36 PM.
It was not moving forward or backwards, just hovering." A disk was
hovering, then disappeared and reappeared. Suddenly there was a flash and
it disappeared again. It started to move a bit but then zoomed away and
disappeared. I stood in the same place for a couple of minutes hoping to
see it again and sure enough I did, but this time for about five seconds.
The witness stated, "It was hovering and then suddenly there was a
flash where the disk was, and then after the flash it wasn't there. Thanks

- OHIO OBJECT FLIES OVERHEAD
- HILLIARD -- At 8:30 PM, an "object" rose from
behind a house, as we were facing the north on April 18, 2002. At first,
the witnesses thought it was a helium balloon. The wife said, "Do
helium balloons rise that fast?" and I told her that I thought that
it must be a "fresh balloon." The object moved overhead and followed
a very linear path towards the north. The witnesses watched it until it
went out of site. The entire episode lasted for about a minute. Thanks

- WISCONSIN SLOW MOVING ASTEROID
- UFOWisconsin reports the witness was watching TV at about
10:30 PM, on April 8, 2002, with one of his friends. He says, "My
TV is next to a picture window so I can usually see a lot of the outside,
which turns out to help me later in my report. He states, "I was getting
up to go to bed and I saw something strange in the sky out my window that
looked like an asteroid, but a lot lower and moving at a much slower pace."
At first, I didn't think anything of it, but when it didn't go away for
about a minute, I kept watching. It was headed to the east, towards the
city. We quickly put on our jackets and went outside to watch it. After
another minute, it stopped in mid air about 8 miles away and broke into
two separate parts, and disappeared. It was pretty weird. Submission by

- ILLINOIS FOURTEEN UFOs SIGHTED
- CHICAGO -- On Sunday, April 14, 2002, at about 5:00 PM,
the male witness was cooking food on his backyard barbecue grille in a
residential neighborhood, while his family and friends sat around talking.
The witness states, "While grilling outdoors my friends and I noticed
a cluster of stars or satellite-looking objects flying very high and apparently
very fast in the skies above Chicago." At first my buddy noticed three
tiny dots of light bright enough to be seen against the cloudless blue
sky. Then we started noticing more of these dots of light. The dots were
traveling together, heading north, and we quickly counted a total of 14
star-looking things ripping along super-high-up. They were difficult to
see, but we all agreed we saw them regardless of what we'd been smoking."
"These objects flew in no regular pattern and, although most flew
at a relatively constant speed, a few of the objects would zip from behind
and on ahead of the rest. This all happened pretty fast, and we were all
feeling like, what the hell are those things! I have never seen anything
like what I saw Sunday." Thanks to UFO Roundup Vol. 7, #17 April 23,

- MISSOURI SILVER OBLONG UFO
- LONE ELK COUNTY PARK -- "Bicycle Bob" Soetebier
and his wife had a UFO sighting just before 1:00 PM on Monday, April 15,
2002. They were returning from the annual Ozark UFO Conference in Eureka
Springs, Arkansas. They were traveling east on I-44, a mile west of Peerless
Park in St. Louis County. Bob reports my wife Dawn Vohsen, was driving
and looking upward and said, "Look out your passenger-side window
and tell me what you see? All I could see was trees. She said, "I
see a large round object that was dark gray with a silver reflective edge."
It was as big as a silver dollar held at arm's length. The sun was slightly
behind us in a clear blue sky with a fair wind. She also said, "Its
going to pass right over or in front of the car -- from right to left --
and that I should watch to see if I could see anything." Only a few
seconds later, we were on the flat portion of I-44 with a break in the
trees on the left/north side of the highway. I immediately spotted a highly
reflective, glaringly silver, object seemingly "hovering" in
the distance. The object was oblong -- about an inch long at arm's length
-- and very thick. It was much thicker (at least two or three times) than
the fuselage of an airplane. It had no appendages, or wings, at all. Since
we we're traveling at highway speed in the car, the object may have been
moving at an equal pace in relation to the speed of the car. However, I
did not detect any movement on the object's part in relation to the ground.
But, the object was well above the background scenery -- between 20 to
30-degrees in elevation, with clear blue sky all around it -- so there
was no easy reference point. I only caught sight of the object for 2 or
3 seconds before an additional clump of trees obscured it from view. It
was only another couple of seconds before we passed that final clump of
trees and the object was suddenly no where to be seen! It was not seen
again. Dawn was not able to look over in time to see the object that I
saw on the north side of the highway. Thanks to Bob Soetebier St. Louis
- CALIFORNIA FLYING TRIANGLE
- BAKERSFIELD -- On March 29, 2002, two witnesses reported
seeing a Flying Triangle at 9:30 PM, with three bright lights on the front.
The is the second witness's report, "My boyfriend and I were driving
south on I5 when he saw a bright light in the air. We drove south towards
the light and saw this object that had three very bright lights on the
front. The craft was diamond shaped and dark gray color with a red light.
It would make very sharp turns that no airplane I have ever seen could
have made. It hovered on the north bound side of the freeway and then would
float down the side of the freeway, over a field and turned very sharply.
I thought the object was trying to land. It looked like it was having troubles.
The belly of the craft had creases where it was put together. After leaving
the area a highway patrolman was seen going at least 100 mph north bound
towards the object. Many people saw this object on the Easter weekend.
We weren't driving fast, maybe 55 mph and traffic was bumper to bumper
so there were many witnesses. Thanks to NUFORC.
- WASHINGTON STEALTHY BOOMERANG
- ELLENSBURG/THORP -- On April 5, 2002, the witness reports
seeing a gray painted boomerang shape with rounded wing tips that was not
overly large. The craft was totally silent even though it was flying quite
low enough to hear engines at 10:24 PM. The witness deliberately waited
to see if an after-sound" could be heard. If the heading was maintained
it would put it left of Seattle/Kent area. The craft had standard aircraft
running lights plus 2 or 3 extras ("clear") that lit up most
of undercarriage allowing an excellent view of the shape. The craft lacked
a standard cockpit and had no tail or tail boom(s). The clear lights gave
no indication of landing light(s) but rather of overlarge regular "house"
lights. There was no forward "sweep" lights. The craft was flying
under 2000 feet, probably just under 1500 feet. The estimated size would
allow three personnel, if lying down in the craft. It seemed thin! More
like an unmanned glider that had a power source of some type. In summery;
this appeared man-made, stealth, possibly an unmanned aircraft that was
confusing and deceptive to the eye. It passed well over the surrounding
hills/ridges. The witness had the impression it was a US or Canadian stealth
aircraft. Thanks Red Elk Med./Wakian and Peter Davenport NUFORC http://www.ufocenter.com.
- CANADA PILOT REPORTS ODD FIELD PATTERN
- PIKE LAKE, SASKATCHEWAN -- CCCRN NEWS, Canadian Crop
Circle Research Network reports an odd field pattern was reported yesterday
by pilot Niels Koehncke, a few miles north of Pike Lake, about 15 miles
south of Saskatoon. He and Monique Mayer discovered the strange pattern
while flying in their Cessna the previous evening, April 27, 2002. The
pattern is an unusual long series of odd pointed / angular shapes, some
of which appear roughly symmetrical. The field is apparently still just
stubble at this time of the year, so just what these shapes may be is unclear.
Monique told CCCRN that they had not seen anything like it before so she
took digital photos. Thanks to the pilot and CCCRN assistant John Erickson
for this report. Copies of photos at: http://www.geocities.com/cropcirclecanada/pikelake02photos.html

- PACIFIC OCEAN SKY LIGHTS UP
- TUVALU -- Peter Davenport received this strange report,
"Dawn arrived ahead of schedule over a remote Pacific Island on October
27, 1997, at 9:42 PM on a black night with low clouds and a light drizzle."
From the west, below the horizon a light lifts steadily and quickly, like
dawn, but much faster and lights up the entire sky. Lagoon waters turn
blue, like day. Birds fly startled from the trees. Roosters crow. The light
passes overhead then up and away rather than bending over the opposite
horizon. At least 200 witnesses saw the light but had never seen, anything
similar. Like dawn breaking at high speed in the middle of the night. Some
say they saw a blue light. A group of football players, resting after a
practice match, say they felt a strong rush of wind as it flew past. One
guy saw it while out in the ocean fishing and jumped for cover under his
boat. Seasoned merchant navy sailors, home on vacation, had never witnessed
anything like it and no one has a clue as to what it could have been. Footage
on TV of meteorites entering the atmosphere, while spectacular, were nothing
at all like this. Here the entire sky lit up, not just a portion of it
with reddening low on the western horizon, like explosions, things dropping
into the ocean, burning, then and blackness. Funafuti is a coral atoll,
extremely flat, making visibility of all horizons very clear. The event
took 15 seconds. There was no noise. Tuvalu is 700 km north of Fiji, remote,
and on no airline flight path. Nothing like this had been seen in Tuvalu
before. If photographed, which it wasn't, it would probably look something
like an artists impression of the 'second coming,' Watchtower style, but
without the figures and trumpets. Peter Davenport requested more information
