- ASTRONOMERS FIND THIRTEEN NEW PLANETS
- Astronomers have found a large planetary system about
51 light years away with at least one planet whose orbit resembles that
of Jupiter. The newly discovered planet is one of three planets circling
a star, called 55 Cancri. Geoffrey Marcy of the University of California,
Berkeley says, "They have found a planet about five times the size
of Jupiter circling a sun-like star and this is the first time we've found
a family of planets that has similarities to our own solar system."
The new planet circles 55 Cancri at a distance of 5.5 Astronomical units,
or almost the same as the orbit of Jupiter. An AU is the distance between
the Earth and the sun, about 93 million miles. The two other planets around
55 Cancri are also Jupiter sized, but they orbit at about 9 million miles
and about 23 million miles from their sun. Jupiter's position in our solar
system helps protect Earth from major meteor bombardment and is key to
life on our planet, making it more likely that life exists in NEW JERSEY
DAYLIGHT DISK SIGHTED
- SOMERSET -- On June 17, 2002, a disk was sighted at 10:00
AM moving in a straight line over Somerset. The witness states, "I
was stopped at a red light on Howe Lane and happened to look up and saw
a bright silver disk moving across the sky rather slowly that suddenly
disappeared when a jet plane came into view. What I saw previously bore
no resemblance to a plane from any angle. What struck me the most was
how the disk was there and then poof, gone. The disk moved slower than
any planes that are normally in the area, but it was too far away and too
bright to see any details even though I was wearing Polaroid Sunglasses.
The surface was reflective and about the size of a penny held at arm's
length. Thanks to MUFON HQ and Bruce Cornet.
- DELAWARE THREE SIGHTINGS OF BRIGHT WHITE FLYING OBJECTS
- SLAUGHTER BEACH -- At 12:30 AM, two bright lights traveling
at high speeds were sighted by four witnesses over the Delaware Bay on
June 1, 2002. The lights were moving at the speed of a shooting star.
Then to our surprise these bright lights zipped upward in a diagonal motion
and then back down towards the Bay again. These lights were sighted off
and on over the next half hour. The witness said, "I have seen plenty
of airline traffic over the past 25 years and can definitely tell you that
this is unlike anything I've ever witnessed."
- FRANKFORD -- The father of a 15 year old girl reports
that on Saturday night, June 1, 2002, " At 2:45 AM, my daughter woke
us up yelling and screaming that a bright light lit up her bedroom!"
"We ran into her room and I sat on her bed comforting her, and observed
a very bright white light at the back of our property in the woods."
We watched for about ten minutes as the four inch light moved around the
woods. Father stated, "We saw a flashing light that flew to the right
and up past our neighbors house." We then went outside and the light
showed up again on our left flashing and moved to the right and seemed
to get smaller. Sometimes it went into the air, other times it flew past
the trees out of sight. "The next around 10:00 PM, my daughter saw
the light again, but did not wake us up." Our neighbors have seen
this also. An elementary school is on the other side of the woods.
- NEWPORT -- Later on Saturday morning at 9:50 AM, June
1, 2002, the witness and his partner were walking their dog and spotted
a slow moving large teardrop shaped object overhead. The very reflective
object was observed flying very high. The object was shaped like a balloon
or parachute in and appeared to be climbing in the sunny and clear sky.
The witnesses took a photo of the object. Thanks to Peter Davenport at
the National UFO Reporting Center, http://www.ufocenter.com.
- PENNSYLVANIA ERRATICALLY MOVING STAR
- GETTYSBURG -- Also on Saturday, June 1, 2002, a third
year medical student and her boyfriend were lying on a blanket on the Gettysburg
Battlefield just up the hill from her former college. At 10:00 PM, the
witnesses noticed that lights or stars were moving around the sky past
a tall lookout tower. "The object appeared to be a star moving at
first in a straight line for several inches (if you held a 12" ruler
at arm's length) that then would stop, then accelerate foreword three times
in short bursts. They then made a zigzag pattern at incredible speeds."
He said, "My girlfriend also saw it, but did not want to believe
that it might be a UFO. I am an electrician from Pittsburgh, and yes both
of us were sober. Thanks to Peter Davenport at the National UFO Reporting
- VIRGINIA PASTOR OBSERVES SILVER UFO
- COVINGTON -- A Baptist Pastor while traveling with his
family on Highway 64, observed a silver aluminum object on June 8, 2002,
flying above the mountains. The object was flying up and across at 100
feet above the mountains. The Pastor says, "When I first noticed
the object it was in the shape of a box and about the size of a small private
plane." "I tried to show it to my family and I was pointing
where to look. Taking my eyes off of it for a moment, it changed to a
round bottom cup shape without the handle (the round section being at the
top). The sighting lasted about 30 seconds. The craft was not in a hurry
really but seemed to be just cruising around. I don't know how it disappeared.
I lost sight of it trying to point it out to my family after looking away
for just a second. I am a Baptist Pastor and do not believe in little alien
dudes with buggy eyes. However I do know that what I saw was not anything

has just relayed a report from his sister involving a curious aerial phenomenon
she observed, she and her family of four were visiting a trailer they own

was lit up by several green-glowing orbs that came from overhead, some
of which came right up to the windows of the trailer." The phenomenon
lasted until 4:00 AM, when they finally left. No one that they talked
to the next day had observed anything. Does this correlate with anything
else known in that area? Thanks to email@example.com and John Schussler

- TENNESSEE SPHERE
- OLD HICKORY -- A student saw a spherical shaped object
with orange and red lights on June 3, 2002. The student reports, "None
of the lights blinked and the craft made no noise as it traveled south
at high speed at 10:00 PM. This comes during a period of high frequency
of visible satellites, at least that is what I'm assuming they were. Some
of the "satellites" increase in brightness until they rival Venus
or Jupiter, then decrease in brightness until they can no longer be seen.
I have also seen a flying triangle, and a diamond shaped aircraft near
my house. There have also been lots of helicopters lately. Thanks to

- ILLINOIS FOUR BRIGHT CIRCLES
- EVANSTON -- The witness on June 2, 2002, saw four bright
circles in the sky moving around. The four circles broke off and then
all joined back at 10:30 PM. The four circling lights went around in one
rotation, and then went back to one big circle. The lights then broke
off again into four little ones. It has been doing that for some time.
The same thing happened again and again. The four lights went around once
and then came back as a whole then broke off again. It kept doing that
for a long time. What did I see? Peter Davenport NUFORC Note: "We
suspect the witness may have been looking at advertising lights on a blimp
- MICHIGAN RED FLYING TRIANGLE WITH SPARKS
- BRIDGMAN -- Five friends were sitting around the fire
on June 1, 2002, thirty minutes after midnight talking and looking for
shooting stars. One witness states, "Out of the corner of my eye
in the southern sky, I saw a slow moving light that was a little bigger
than a shooting star that changed color from red to orange to white in
a matter of seconds." It looked as though it was enflamed, and it
shot something out that looked like a spark." My friend shouted out
obscenities in disbelief when he saw it go under a cloud and shoot out
sparks two more times at about a half second apart. Then it abruptly slowed
down, then sped up and suddenly disappeared. The object left a small flaming
tail but was too low in my opinion to be space junk. The witness stated,
"It was an almost perfect flying triangle with rounded edges heading
southeast that lasted a few seconds. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director
of NUFORC http://www.ufocenter.com.
- WISCONSIN TUBULAR SHAPE AND GLINTING OBJECT
- MADISON -- The witness states, "I saw a strange
tubular shaped object going south for a moment on June 4, 2002, as I was
distracted by another glinting object traveling north. The glinting object
seemed to change direction unlike a plane or a helicopter and entered a
cloud but continued to glint, when I noticed the tubular shape coming from
the north. When I looked back a couple of seconds later, they both had
disappeared. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director of NUFORC http://www.ufocenter.com.

- DULUTH -- On June 17, 2002, at 1:30 AM, the witness reports
seeing a blinking white light, that did not stay long, The witness states,
"It was round and slightly larger than the North Star and was seen
in the sky above Morgan Park in Duluth for about five minutes." Thanks
- TEXAS DAYLIGHT DISKS
- CORPUS CHRISTI -- A woman reports, "My husband was
driving our fishing boat south under the Island Freeway Bridge on June
2, 2002, and I looked west and saw a swarm of white birds with two white
disk shaped objects flying behind them. At 2:30 PM, the disks stayed in
formation side by side for the longest time. They seemed to be barely
moving. This was an exceptionally clear Sunday with white clouds in the
back ground. The two disks never drifted up or down. They approached a
cloud, in formation and instead of going through it, they took a 45 degree
turn around it. Then I saw one of the unidentified craft go through the
middle of the cloud for a second. I did notice that they seemed to have
stopped for the moment. Then slowly it flew behind the cloud and came
out the other side. Once again the disks were flying side by side, in
perfect order. They flew in perfect formation and turned exactly to the
right at a sharp angle at the same time.
- I kept trying to show my husband what I was seeing and
he also saw these objects. After they came out the other side of the cloud
they just continued going away from us until they were out of sight. There
was no sound and no smoke like jets would leave. We observed them for
ten minutes or so and then they were gone. I always wear polarized sunglasses
and the sun was behind me and not in my eyes. Thanks to Peter Davenport

- COLORADO DAYLIGHT DISK
- LITTLETON -- The weather changed today on June 3, 2002,
from unseasonably hot to cool and windy as the front moved in and storm
clouds appeared. An office worker reports, "As I looked out my office
window, I noticed a black, circular shape in the sky that remained stationary
for 20 or more seconds at 3:03 PM." He states, "My first impression
was that the object might be a rather large balloon within a half mile
of my position, but oddly it remained stationary in the wind." "I
put my caller on hold and looked more closely. After remaining stationary
for about 30 seconds, it began to move slightly, in almost a fluttering
way or jagged way, suddenly dipping to the left and downward, and changing
shape from circular to more flat. Then it went up again and a little to
the right, again becoming more circular, but also changing shape so that
it was periodically circular and then more ovoid. It headed back to the
left and would remain somewhat stationary and then dip further down. CALIFORNIA
- SAN DIEGO -- Jan Kregers writes, "After reading
the account of the triangular lights/satellites sighting in the Stanislaus
National Forest in Filer's Files #24," I figured I'd better write
to you as I also had a sighting of triangular lights that same night.
I use a set of Swarovski Habicht SL binoculars sky watching a couple hours
almost every night. On the night of May 29, at about 10:30 PM, I saw three
dim star like lights slowly appear near Seginus (Gamma Bootes) and move
southeast. They were a dark orangey-red, and looked very much like the
glow of an 'idling' cigarette ember. The lights were arranged in an isosceles
triangle separated by the size of the first joint of my thumb held at arm's
length. When the lead light was just passing north of Izar, it dimmed
and went out like a dimmer switch. At that point, I thought, 'Okay, if
these are satellites, and they are passing into the earth's shadow, then
the next light to go out should be the left-hand trailing light' (as it
wa I've had other sightings of star like lights that change color (from
dim orange-red to bright blue-white and back) and move too oddly to be
conventional aircraft. On four nights In July 2001, I sighted multiple
'dots' flying south through the constellation Cygnus and weaving rapidly
back and forth across each others' flight paths as if they were playing
tag. They would zigzag and make right-angle turns with some heading east
and some west. Lastly, I wanted to let you know that I enjoyed hearing
you speak at the Disclosure Press Conference last year the Disclosure Project
came to San Diego last August I worked as a volunteer at the event. Thanks

- WASHINGTON SIGHTINGS CONTINUE
- BREMERTON -- The witness was sitting in his hot tub shortly
before 1:00 AM, on June 12, 2002, when a lighted triangle shaped object
raced across the sky leaving no trail. The witness reports, I noticed
an object flying across the sky above me that appeared to have red and
green lights in a triangle shape that was moving at a fast rate of speed.
The craft appeared to be very high in sky but was still large but no sound
was heard. No trail was left either. Eventually, it just flew out of my
sight but not after going across the sky for 5-7 seconds. Thanks to Peter
Davenport Director of NUFORC http://www.ufocenter.com.
- CANADA BRIGHT LIGHTS
- LONGEUIL (ST-HUBERT), QUEBEC -- The witness and his wife
were returning home on June 1, 2002, just before 10:00 PM and while exiting
the freeway they noticed many aircraft flying very low with bright searchlights
on. I never saw that much activity, even less at night. Off the freeway
I noticed two bright lights standing still at a medium altitude, much too
low to be stars or planets, and they had no the flashing lights like normal
aircraft. We drove closer to the lights, and it was very bizarre there
were planes and helicopters flying very low everywhere around the lights.
We watched for two hours then the lights disappeared, the other planes
flew away not long after. Despite numerous witnesses including police
it was not reported in the media. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director of

- POLONNARUWA -- The national television channel, Sri Lanka
Rupavahini Corporation reported on it's 8:00 PM, news on both June 9, and
10th, that there have been UFO sightings in the city of Polonnaruwa in
first week of June 2002. The TV channel showed a video footage of the spacecraft.

- AUSTRALIA CIGAR FLIES NEXT TO AIRLINER
- SYDNEY -- At 4:30 PM, the witness was waiting for a bus
in a residential area on June 4, 2002, when he noticed a strange looking
object floating above to the north. He states, "There was a longish
object like a cigar or tube, white in color, with red lights glowing around
it, I could clearly see the red lights." "At this moment a passenger
plane was climbing and flew past and I made some comparisons between the
two aircraft, he added. I could clearly see the wings, tail, the marks
and even the portholes on the airliner. "I could compare them and
saw they were about the same size and about the same attitude, but the
cigar had no wings, no tail and no specific characteristics to tell me
that this was something I have seen before." I thought that if it
was UFO, the people in the passenger plane must have seen it in the brilliant
cloudless sky. However, there were no newspaper reports. So, I called

- ARGENTINA CATTLE MUTILATIONS REACH 50 - RIVERA AND PRINGLES
-- The mutilation in the town of Rivera is the first one to involve a horse.
The animal had died from natural causes and days later, the carcass showed
signs of strange incisions. Meanwhile, the first cattle mutilation in
Coronel Pringles was reported involving a 220 kg. steer. Veterinarian
Marcelo Erro claims he has never seen anything like it. The horse was
inspected by veterinarian Jorge Robles, who also analyzed the dead cow
found in Arano. The horse is missing its tongue, an eye, an ear and its
genitals." Robles recalled the autopsy he performed on the cow he
found at Arano, that when I reached the pelvic cavity, I found a hole resembling
a tunnel, and I couldn't find the uterus or the ovaries. They also took
its eye, tongue, and ear, and a patch of skin bordering the lips. The
incisions on the horse and cow are identical. The veterinarian said this
is not classic surgery. "The wounds are not burned, and while my understanding

- Hamish Mackenzie of the Sunday Express writes on June
16, 2002, "On a raised platform beneath the galleried ceiling of the
prestigious National Press Club in Washington, DC, a group of men and women,
all experts in their chosen field, waited patiently as the large hall filled
with more than 150 journalists from newspapers and TV stations all around
the world." For almost two hours, one by one, more than 20 "eyewitnesses"
-- nuclear missile silo commanders and employees of large corporations
-- described their experiences to the assembled press. Some spoke of inexplicable
encounters with unidentified lights and objects in the air, others of the
crashes of strange craft of "unaccountable, and illegal projects."
Yet others even claimed to be involved with the "back-engineering
of advanced technology." Many expressed frustration at their failure
to be taken seriously. All referred to a World-Wide conspiracy to keep
the truth from governments and public alike. As each individual spoke Last
year, the Sunday Express was the first newspaper to publish an article
on the Disclosure Project, an US-Based UFO group whose stated aim is to
press the US Congress for an open hearing. The group's founder, DR Steven
Greer, claims he is continuing to gather "deep-insider witnesses"
who, if released from their security oaths, would tell Congress what they
know about an alleged cover-up of the existence of UFOs and extraterrestrials
as well as the possession of their advanced life-changing technology.
But one year on, the Project seems nowhere nearer achieving its goal, despite
positive feedback from US Senators and overwhelming interest from the public
via their website. Dr. Greer is now concentrating on a grassroots effort
to spread the word via a global network of representatives. "This
is the best chance we have had in 50 years to find out what is really going
on," say David Williams, one of the Disclosure Projects UK representatives.
Now an IT director in the finance indu It only needs the public to realize
that one of the witnesses, someone like John Callahan is telling the truth
for the whole thing to be blown wide open." John Callahan, a former
senior investigator with the Accidents and Investigations Branch of the
US Federal Aviation Authority, is an imposing presence. His story, like
the man, is hard to dismiss. At the press conference, he recalled how,
on November 18, 1986, the pilots of Japan Airlines Flight 1628, flying
over Alaska, reported they were seeing "a huge ball with lights running
around it ... four times as big as a 747." The sighting was significant
because the object was simultaneously being recorded on ground-based radar
at Anchorage Air Traffic Control. The flight crew and ground radar operators
watched as the UFO performed aerobatics and flew at speeds beyond the capability
of any known aircraft. At one point the captain expressed concern at the
effects the object appeared to be having on his instruments. After more
t "To get a Congressional hearing one of three things will have to
happen, "The media will have to call for it, or the public need to
be heard asking for it, or there has to be a massive, undeniable UFO event."
What is clear is that a large number of individuals have come forward
and made statements whose implications, if true, are profound! If the
witnesses are who they say they are -- and are found to be lying -- then
we should be very concerned about the type of individuals who fly our planes,
control air traffic, man the missile silos and protect our communities.
If on the other hand, the witnesses are telling the truth then -- no matter
how extraordinary -- this is a serious issue. "If we believe them,'
says David Williams, "Then we have to accept that we are not alone.
Someone is covering up and we should want to know why. "We may have
been deceived by some of our witnesses, but not by all of them," he
continues. "There are too many people who have seen something they
