- PENNSYLVANIA TWO UFOs PHOTOGRAPHED
- 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 http://www.abduct.com/.
Editors Note: The objects are rather small, but enlarged they appear to
be discs with domes.
- GEORGIA UNUSUAL AIRCRAFT SPOTTED
- 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 www.ufocenter.com
- MINNESOTA LIGHTS
- 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.

- WASHINGTON LIGHTS
- 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

- SCOTLAND UFO REPORT FROM THE YEAR 1767
- 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.

- PAKISTAN UFO RECOVERED
- 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.
- GREEN METEORITE FIREBALLS
- 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
- 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

- MARS CYDONIA
- 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,
- CYNTHIA HIND DIES
- 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.
