GETTYSBURG -- Marilyn J. Ruben writes: "I thought you would enjoy seeing the UFO photo I took Sunday afternoon August 20, 2000, at 3:09 PM. while our family was on vacation in Gettysburg. We were driving the route through the Civil War battlefields of Gettysburg and periodically got out of the car to take pictures. I was using the Sony digital still camera. The photo is a close-up of what is known as the "Copse of Trees" (meaning clump of trees). It is in the middle of a large field in Gettysburg in an area where 20,000 confederates charged across this field to attack union soldiers hiding in the "copse of trees." About one-third of the Confederate soldiers were killed here in July of 1863. Pickett's Charge was a turning point in the Civil War. I found the battleground to be as moving an experience. After reviewing the photos today, I was surprised to discover two UFOs hovering in on either side of the "Copse of Trees." The two UFOs were not there when I took the picture, since I had been watching he skies continuously for UFOs. It seemed as if the UFOs were watching over Gettysburg. The photos can be seen at the Alien Abduction Experience and Research web site Editors Note: The objects are rather small, but enlarged they appear to be discs with domes.
RINGGOLD - On August 15, 2000, I was driving down one of the major roads that connects Ft. Oglethorpe to Ringgold at 01:50 AM. I noticed a ball of light moving across the sky that was too fast and low to be a plane, and too slow to be a falling star. The light moved across the sky and started to disappear behind some tree tops, but made a huge U-turn back toward me. As it turned, I noticed it had two lights on it, but as it came closer I saw three white-colored lights. Two larger ones were on the sides, and other was in the middle. Higher up was a small red flashing light in between the three white ones. It was hovering in the air above a house while I was stopped. I then decided to hightail it home. I kept looking back for the object but I didn't see it. As I neared my home, I put my turn signal on and saw the aircraft was directly above my driveway. I could clearly see the three lights and the flashing light. The craft had some kind of blue and red reflective checkerboard pattern on the bottom. I stopped my car at the top of my driveway and watched the craft as it made it's way across the sky and slowly flew over the top of my car, and crept off over my house until it disappeared into the darkness. I waited in my car for a few minutes to make sure it was gone, and ran inside. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC
MINNESOTA RIVER - MUFON's William I. McNeff reports that a witness observed lights while night fishing on August 5, 2000, at 11:45 to 12:10 PM three miles east of Le Sueur. The witness says, "I was watching the catfish lines and the frequent falling stars, when I looked north to the lowest part of the spoon in the Big Dipper constellation. I watched a light become bright as it moved in what would become a southerly direction. I assumed, that the increase in light intensity was due to the sun's reflection on a satellite. I noticed that it was a slower speed than any of the other six satellites I had observed earlier that evening. I saw another light appear behind it that was maybe 1/2" at arm's-length. From the time I saw the first, until the second appeared, was 20 seconds. The speed of one was erratic at best. Using the stars in the background, I was able to verify that they traveled less a trajectory, but rather in a meandering direction, neither holding a constant speed. The second never passed the first. Then, as they were at a point I would describe as 11 O'clock, I saw the third. They seemed to "inch-worm" across the sky, all wavering slightly in direction, in a loose formation. The second seemed to act as a "chase-plane", like the Tigers that follow the Shuttle's entry. Sometimes, the second would slow to alongside the third, making equilateral triangle, sometimes drop behind, but not for long. It seemed intent on trying to hold its own position in the formation. I watched them for 5 minutes, as they crossed the arc of the sky. They faded out of light in the S-SE, as would a satellite re-entering the Earth's shadow. That's one of the reasons I say their altitude was orbit-level. Thanks to Jeffrey Pekarna. Le Sueur and MUFON's William I. McNeff
SEATTLE -- I saw Linda Lull's report Filer's Files #32 that remind me of the sighting I had on July 23, 2000, around 4:30 PM., I was driving north on Interstate 5, near the Shorline district of Seattle. The sky in front of me was crystal clear blue. Looking up I saw a very bright light in the north west sky that was 1/16 of an inch held at arm's length. My impression is that the object was metallic and the brightness was caused by the reflecting sunlight. The object appeared to be stationary although since I was in a moving vehicle that can't be confirmed. I watched the object for perhaps two minutes when it suddenly just vanished or "winked out" as it is sometimes described. I probably would not have made the report to NUFORC if it hadn't been for the unusual fact that it just vanished before my eyes after being so prominently in view. Thanks to Gary Val Tenut at
Ilias Chrissochoidis writes, "As a doctoral student in the Humanities, I've been spending much time reading 18th-century British periodicals. In one of them I have found a report of an unexplained phenomenon. I leave it to your judgment and experience to decide its merits as a UFO sighting. Extract of a letter from Edinburgh, Sept. 8, 1767 follows:
"We hear from Perthsire, that an uncommon phaenomenon was observed on the water of Isla, near Cupor Angus, preceded by a thick dark smoke, which soon dispelled, and discovered a large luminous body, like a house on fire, but presently after took a form something pyramidal, and rolled forwards with impetuosity till it came to the water of Erick, up which river it took its direction, with great rapidity, and disappeared a little above Blairgowrie. The effects were as extraordinary as the appearance. In its passage, it carried a large cart many yards over a field of grass; a man riding along the high road was carried from his horse, and so stunned with the fall, as to remain senseless a considerable time. It destroyed one half of a house, and left the other behind, undermined and destroyed an arch of the new bridge building at Blairgowrie, immediately after which it disappeared. As few appearances of this kind ever were attended with like consequences, various conjectures have been formed concerning it. Thanks to Ilias Chrissochoidis Ph.D. candidate Stanford University
DERA GHAZI KHAN -- On August 26, 2000, law enforcement agencies on Friday visited Khumbi Thalang in Tuman Gorchani tribal area of Rajanpur district where an unidentified flying object (UFO) crashed a few days ago. The Bahawalpur corps commander reportedly visited the site on Thursday. He along with other army officers inspected the 10-foot long piece of metal. The wreckage was taken away to unknown place in a covered container. The UFO was spotted flying over Balochistan on August 15. It was seen flying over Rajanpur, Loralai, Barkhan and Fort Munro area last week. It crashed some 20 kilometers away from Farid Air Base used by the Pakistan Air Force for exercises. According to local tribesmen, when it crashed at Khumbi Thalang, sky remained illuminated for about one minute. Editor's Note: The shape of the object would indicate it is some type of missile.
Michael O'Connor writes, The numerous stop-light green meteorites, fireballs or spheres seen in our skies are space ships. The drive inductor sucks in gravity in the front and pushes it out the back, propelling the craft. Elements in the air are caught in this flow and tend to build-up on the front of the craft. Gravity, now flowing through this build-up, induces a great friction creating a tremendous heat. The now molten build- up migrates under the craft and drips off, lending itself to the ancients description of a "Fiery Chariot". The molten and still glowing drippings were the "Burning Lamps" that fell from the sky. This "Coating" must be dispersed or else the functionality of the ship is impaired. It is blocking up the intake! The drippings cool as they fall through the air and when they hit the ground, they flatten a little, but still maintain their rounded edges. These drippings provide ample, but as yet unrecognized, evidence of extraterrestrial space craft.
People fall over them daily. Some are used as garden ornaments. Kids try to skip them over water, but they are commonly referred to as River Rocks. Scientists reveal that River Rocks are formed by tumbling or by the action of water, but have you ever seen a half formed River Rock? No. Why? Because they do not exist. These drippings were also responsible for the Chico mystery, where warm rounded rocks rained down on an old warehouse just outside of town. This phenomenon lasted for two years from 1921 through 1923. Are you interested in these things? Thanks to: Michael O'Connor (Michael O'Connor)
I asked LAN Fleming, "Do you have any thoughts about my comments that there seems to be a road, passageway, or canal between various sights at Cydonia?" The face, pyramid, and fort all seem connected. They also remind me of similar sites in Egypt and Mexico. One artifact can be explained away, but not the whole site.
Lan Fleming writes, "Yes, it's been noticed by other people that there are features that look like they could have been roads near some of the landforms, like the "Fort." Of course, they aren't definite enough to be totally sure they're not of geologic origin, but as you say, it's the totality of features in Cydonia that is compelling. Rather than monotonous repetitions of the same basic forms with minor random variations as is seen in most purely natural landscapes, there is a variety of puzzling features of sharply different form that seem to be related to each other in various ways, all in a very small region of the planet. We probably won't be certain what meaning, if any, is behind these apparent relationships until Cydonia is excavated in the way that Egyptian and Mayan ruins have been. I'm afraid that won't happen in our life time, though.
With sadness and regret, I am passing along the news that extraordinary South African UFO researcher Cynthia Hind has passed on after a lengthy illness. She was a totally marvelous person who was a great asset to the field of Ufology with her dignity and grace and solid intellect. We all will miss her.
