- NOTE: I would like to point out that these files contain
initial reports from concerned people who spend a considerable bit of effort
and time to report their sightings. They have observed, photographed,
or videotaped unidentified flying objects (UFOs). A UFO is not necessarily
an alien craft, it may be any type of various phenomenon such as plasmas,
Earth lights, classified aircraft, blimps, etc. The cases are investigated
whenever possible and only a small portion are determined to be truly unidentified.
This investigation may take weeks or even years. Often these initial
reports are supported by others observers, creating a stronger case for
a particular UFO. Hundreds of reports are received each month from high
quality observers. -George Filer
- Arthur C. Clark stated, "We are either alone in
the universe or we are not. Either case is overwhelming!"
- TWENTY-THREE OUT OF THIRTY-ONE MARS PROBES FAIL
- My experience chasing a UFO while in the Air Force has
led me to believe that we are not alone in the universe. I attempt to
show evidence that supports this belief. Officially, NASA, the US Government,
most scientists, and numerous Ufologists feel that I'm wrong, and I admit
I may be in error. I certainly could be, but many people who I never thought
would agree with my perspective are sending letters of support. By far
the hardest people to convince are those who claim to be Ufologists. This
phenomena is a valid one that's needs investigation using scientific instruments
and research. The phenomena is real and in my opinion the evidence exists
in space, on Mars, and here on Earth. The scientific images of a large
cylindrical shaped object taken by the Soviet's Phobos 2 scientific mission
to Mars is virtually the same cylindrical shaped object described by a
witness in the Florida story below. These images and testimony could be
used in a court of law and should be considered as scientific evidence
as well. The objects are reported by hundreds of witnesses each month.
Insiders seem very worried and encourage these reports.
- NASA claims they are searching for intelligent life on
Mars with something like 15 Billion dollars of the taxpayer's money. I
can only assume these are competent scientists with advanced technology.
- On December 16, 1999, I phoned Doug Isbelle at NASA Public
Relations (407 867-2468) who told me that better than 90 percent of all
missions sent into space are successful. He did admit that something like
23 out of 31 probes going to Mars have failed. Only eight got through for
a 26% success rate. I explained my theories that someone or something
was laying in wait near Mars, and was preventing our space probes from
getting through. He stated, "There is not much evidence anything
is out there so they are reviewing their technology, computers, mission
management, and the craft themselves to determine why Mars missions are
jinxed. I told him, I was at one time a Flight Planner, intelligence officer
and flyer that planned flights for the President of the US, various military
transports and fighters. All flights were successful to my knowledge.
If we lost over two-thirds of our aircraft we would have been fired.
I suggested that if you even suspect foul play, you must make adjustments
in how the mission is flown.
- There are numerous penetration techniques that might
improve our chances of getting through to Mars and save billions of dollars.
NASA has already announced that bacterial life once existed on Mars.
Perhaps it has grown up? Furthermore, the 1989, last images from the Soviet
Phobos mission showed a huge cylinder UFO closing on the Phobos spacecraft
just before it stopped operating. Doug stated, "That was an old Soviet
mission to Mars and not really of any interest to NASA." He assured
me that they have decreased the cost of each mission down from the billion
dollars each, and that the newer missions are much more reasonable. I
wish to point out that Soviet Colonel Maria Popovitch, one of the world's
most famous test pilots appeared on the television show Hardcopy with a
video of a long cigar shaped object that apparently caused the failure
of Phobos 2. Photos of the UFO can be seen on my www.filerfiles.com Webpage.

- THOROFARE - Nick Altamuro was driving to work on Route
295 on December 17, 1999, when he spotted a bright pinkish light in the
sky at 7:15 AM. The light descended vertically and suddenly streaked off
to the northwest disappearing at tremendous speed. The color and high
speed movement was much faster than any normal aircraft in the sky and
lasted for only 30 seconds. Thanks to Nick Altamuro Woodbury, NJ.
- PENNSYLVANIA PLASMA UFO
- LANSDOWNE - In a most unusual experience prior to this
summer, myself, my sister Dolores and friend Kathleen Simon watched as
a jet flew due west of Philadelphia. It formed a contrail along its path
from which an object broke off of the trail, just a short distance behind
the jet. Afterwards, the object veered off for about ten to fifteen seconds
and then, vanished. The object was well defined so as not to be simply
vapor from the trail itself. This curious event occurred May 30, 1999,
8:00 PM EST This has been, undoubtedly, the most outstanding incident in
sightings for myself and others here. Thanks to: Michael Kelly email@example.com
- On December 15, 1999, at 9:52 PM a friend and helpful
assistant with my UFO Discussion Groups at the local Sidetracks Cafe in
Lansdowne, PA related having noticed a streak of bluegrass light through
the window of her sixth floor apartment. The light came from the direction
of the roof just left of her window which curved to the right. It seemed
like a firework and made a popping sound. She was frightened and couldn't
explain it. Her room glowed, briefly. We discussed the possibility of
arcing electricity but didn't come to any conclusion. Michael Kelly <firstname.lastname@example.orgEditors
Note: We suspect a buildup of electrical energy or plasma causes this phenomenon.
- VIRGINIA THREE DISCS
- DANVILLE - Adam Clark reports that on November 4, 1999,
at 5:30 PM my friend and I were outside talking when I noticed three disc
shaped objects in the sky. I told my friend to look and we watched the
three objects for about 30 minutes when the objects flew off. One of the
disc objects was smaller than the other two. They were metallic gray in
color. No detail could be seen. On November 18, we were outside again
and my friend told me to look up, because the same three objects were in
the sky. We watched them for about 10 minutes around 5:30 PM. Thanks to

- GEORGIA UFO ACTIVITY
- NORCROSS - MUFON State Director Tom Sheets reports that
NUFORC has several recent cases posted from our area to include a November
21, 1999, illuminated object near Highway 141 in Norcross, possible disc
hovered and then accelerated at a tremendous speed.
- LAWERENCEVILLE - On November 24, 1999, a circle shape
was observed near Highway 316. It was the size of a large car sending
out blinding flashes like lightening strikes. ASD Mark Ausmus of Lawrenceville
also observed some sort of unusual explosion in the sky a little over a
week ago. Possibly related to the above is a witness living outside of
Cumming at the south end of Lake Lanier. He has observed unusual bright
multicolored star like objects coming up above the horizon and then going
back down. Within the last few days, the witness has observed these darting
- ROME - A few weeks ago, our Diane Headrick referred a
witness to SSD Janssen in Rome regarding a 'ferris wheel' appearing UFO.
- ZEBULON - On December 12, 1999, at 2:10 PM, a dump truck
operator was unloading on County Line Rd. in Pike County. As he checked
his outside mirror, he noticed a distant object in the sky, his truck facing
to the SW, appearing just over the top of his mirror. He stuck his hand
out and spread his fingers to measure it's travel from NE to SW and stated
that it went from the tip of thumb to tip of finger in about 3 seconds.
He continued to watch the object for about 10 seconds, describing it as
round, aluminum color, glistening in the sun, about 3 times the size of
a BB shot or small ball bearing at arm's length. The witness indicated
that it had no aircraft like structures such as wings, tail etc. He had
earlier been watching regular jet liners leaving contrails overhead, and
that the viewing conditions were good in the blue sky. This witness was
an attendee at a recent MUFONGA meeting.
- TENNESSEE SILVER CYLINDRICAL UFO
- DANDRIDGE - On December 2, 1999, Patricia G. reports,
"At 12:25 PM, I was sky-watching and saw a silver cylinder flying
north to southwest rather flying slowly. I'm afraid I can't tell the altitude,
but it was large." "At first I thought it might be a jumbo jet,
so I looked through my binoculars, and to my delight there were no wings
or tail, just a smooth silver cylinder. There was no jetstream or contrail."
On Wednesday night, December 1, Patricia's daughter "saw a blue light
that pulsated in the northeast sky. She said it was as large as a pencil
eraser. She was driving home and lost sight of it when she got home."

- ALABAMA METEOR
- John Thompson writes I think the December 5, 1999, flash
was caused by a bolide. I believe the meteor blew up between Anniston
and Birmingham. There was no direction to speak of because one or more
pieces fell basically straight down. This would explain why most people
near Montgomery and LaGrange only saw flashes and the folks in Tennessee
only saw a flash. The radio manager down here was in a totally cleared
area he said. He caught the "ball" just barely going down. In
truth, he probably saw it at its highest -- 20 miles or higher -- and saw
it disappeared because of the curvature of the earth between LaGrange and
the location where it blew up at. The deputies probably saw much the same
in Douglas County except they were looking more to the west whereas the
radio man was looking to the northwest. It might have traveled somewhat
down to the west but I'll bet it was almost a pure vertical free-fall for
the ball and tail into Alabama.
- We know the bolide wasn't that high because of the witnesses
in Alabama say they heard it only 1 1/2 minutes to 2 minutes later. Simple
math of 760 mph for the speed of sound shows it was not more than 25 miles
away when the flash occurred. That's not that high at all. Joel Vincent
said that since the December 5, explosion he has had lots of callers from
Georgia and Alabama saying that their have been crisscrossed "chem-trials"
galore in the sky. Joel was implied a decontamination effort was under
way. He asked if I had heard about "cow poop" hitting north
of Atlanta in August. He said he got a call off the air that some stuff
that can only be described as cow manure had seemed to have been hurled
to the ground and splattered. It was not cow manure but it looked like
this. Strange! I told him the Big Birds have returned! I was wondered what
had happened to them. Best Regards, firstname.lastname@example.org.
- FLORIDA CYLINDER
- TAMPA - The witness was driving south on Highway 75,
and saw this cylinder shaped object in very pale muted blue and green cast
sky. It stood out as a huge cylindrical upright object. It appeared as
if the sky was a fabric and that this object was coming through a slit
in the fabric. The witness was not sure what could be so huge and its
vertical position like a column was unlike the horizontal positions of
a plane, craft or birds, etc. It was solid white in color with a definite
outline to it and it did not mover or change shape. The witness watched
for about five minutes. The length of the object at arm's length was about
the size of a new pencil, eight inches by half an inch in width. The witness
also compares the length of the object to approximately six full moons,
at arm's length. The sighting took place on November 9, 1996, at 9:00 AM.

- TEXAS GOLDEN FLYING TRIANGLE
- SILSBEE - Sue reports that she observed a UFO, 25 miles
north of Beaumont, Texas on December 10, 1999. Sue was traveling home
from work when she saw a large golden flying triangle at 5:00 PM. It appeared
to be heading towards the ground on a fairly steep angle. She thought it
might crash and looked for the smoke or fire and the sound of a crash,
but there was none. She tried to get her husband to come outside and look
but he doesn't believe in UFOs. This is the first time Sue ever saw a
UFO. Sue said, "This is my first sighting ever." Thanks to:
- HOUSTON - On December 10, 1999, at 8:00 - My daughter
was looking at the sky and asked me, "What is that?" and I replied
it's the Moon. She said, "The moon is to the right!" I looked
again and seen this bright light with what looked like lots of stars or
fire maybe, behind it. I was amazed. We watched it for about 20 seconds
and went to get my wife and she came out, but it was gone. We stood there
a couple more minutes and saw it again going the other direction. First,
we saw it coming down. The second time it was shooting up. I can only
explain it as a strange feeling. It looked more like a rocket landing
or missile. We thought Russia sent one at us, but the second time we saw
it going the other way. Well, we were amazed. Thanks to the World Wide
UFO Reporting Center
- CONTRAILS IN OKLAHOMA AND NEW MEXICO SKY AGAIN
- ELK CITY - was visited again on December 16, 1999, by
Contrails. The contrails were last observed on November 29, 1999, Scarecrow
writes, "I observed a whole sky full of parallel contrails. There
were huge lines in the sky at low level, all parallel. Then there were
contrails crossing the first at right angles causing a checker board sky.

Editor's Note: There are many stories explaining why Air Force and government
aircraft are spraying large areas of the country with unknown substances.
Some of the best explanations indicate that some kind of anti-viral, or
anti-bacteria spray is being spread to kill disease or biological warfare
agents. See www.filersfiles.com and www.contrailconnnections.com. link
- NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY DEEP SPACE PROBES
- Bill Hamilton Executive Director of Skywatch International,
Inc. writes that when I served in the US Air Force in the 1960s I was assigned
to Security Service which reported directly to the National Security Agency
(NSA). NSA is mainly concerned with signal intelligence (SIGINT) and uses
the finest radio equipment to tune into the signals transmitted by various
military organizations throughout the world. These military communications
are often encrypted so that only the intended receiver can decipher them.
We have heard from various sources that have worked within compartmentalized
NSA projects that NSA may also be interested in intercepting signals from
extraterrestrial sources in order to maintain national security. We know
from documents released from FOIA requests that the NSA has maintained
an interest in UFOs. The mission of tapping some type of signal from UFOs
operating within or without our atmosphere, or from planetary bases of
operation is conceivable. "There are many intelligence reports that
NSA may have numerous "Deep Space Probes" some reaching beyond
the orbit of Neptune. The real purpose of these space probes has not been
determined. NSA/OCR is the reported office responsible for tracking these
probes. Why then is NSA in deep space when the "threat" as we
know it is centered here in the near Earth environment? A NSA source reported
that one of these NSA Deep Space Probes detected a failed parachute on
the Mars' Lander. NSA reported this to JPL, but JPL did not inform the
public. And, the "Aliens" are reportedly suppose to have a base
on Neptune's moon Triton. Perhaps these NSA Deep Space Probes monitor
"Alien" activity in our Solar System? A list of the successful
NSA probes can be seen at: http://home.sprintmail.com/~rigoletto/reports/nsa_deep_space_probes.htm

- SATELLITE DISAPPEARANCES
- Mike Smeltzer comments that for several years I have
watched a growing list of satellites and space probes just disappear. I
watched footage of the Space shuttle Columbia explosion, only to discover
less than one second before the explosion occurred, two UFO fly past at
high speed (they only appear in two frames of video). This was the real
beginnings of my watching of strange situations unfold (only two weeks
after the shuttle explosion, the Russians watched Chernobyl go into meltdown).
The list is growing. Several Canadian communication satellites just stop
broadcasting. Two CIA black project Mars probes just disappear, one of
which was launched shortly after our Mars probe stopped broadcasting. The
other CIA satellite, after the Russian Mars probe video transmissions stop.
The list goes on and on. Insurance company's are not only just aware of
the tremendous lose of satellites but also the five fold increase in lost
aircraft over the past several years. I feel some ones or some things are
trying to tell us that we are NOT in control of the skies. (Snip.) Thanks

- AIR FORCE CLAIMS MJ-12 DOCUMENTS FABRICATED
- Researcher Joseph Stefula writes: In his book "The
F.B.I. Files-The FBI's UFO Top Secrets Exposed," Nick Redfern, a FBI
memo from SAC, Dallas, to Director, FBI, states they had received copy
of a MJ-12 document. (MJ-12 Documents claim that an alien craft crashed
at Roswell.) Dallas requested Headquarters discern if the document is
still classified? Dallas would withhold any investigation in abeyance
until further direction from FBI Headquarters.
- FBI Headquarters inquired if the Air Force's AFOSI, Washington,
DC, had any information on MJ12, the FBI would like to know? On November
30, 1988, Headquarters AFOSI advised the FBI that the document was "fabricated''.
But Special Agent Frank Batten, Chief of the Information Release Division
at the Investigative Operations Center admitted to Mr. Redfern that AFOSI
had no records pertaining to MJ12 or any investigation that the papers
were faked. This situation is odd to say the least, without any investigation
how could Air Force AFOSI state to the FBI that the MJ12 document was faked?
Redfern interviewed Col. Dick Weaver (ret). He , too, conceded, however,
that there were "no documents responsive to Redfern's request for
Air force files on how such a determination was reached."
- INVESTIGATION CONTINUES ON SATELLITE OF UFO OR MOON?
- Numerous experts have attempted to solve the mystery
of the giant anomalous object picked up on November 21, 1999, at 14:45Z
on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Geosynchronous
Orbiting Environmental Satellite (GOES) in orbit watching the Earth's weather.
Nicla Camerin writes that he had observed the NOAA Satellite photos above
Earth. These objects are not the moon. I looked at the images for the
day before and after at the same time. If that object had been the moon,
it would have been there on those days as well." The image appears
to be a full disk, and in the left corner you can see another 'spot'.
I zoomed in, and rendered and seems to be another 'object'. Do you have
any idea at what timing are get this satellite images? 1/500, 1/1000, 1/8000
etc. In the full disk 4 seems to be a 'blur' in the top-left part instead
of the bottom are defined. In the full disk there seems to be some kind
of heat around the object. Thanks to Nicla.
- Another person wrote US Military satellites also pick
up the Fast Walkers on a regular basis. They are the ones knocking out
- Nick Balaskas <nikolaos@York U. So does the Moon (about
15%). Astronomer Rik Hill checked this out and found that our natural satellite
was at the right place, and showing the right phase to account for the
oval image at the time the pix was taken. The shape of the object was
due to the motion of the Moon, which caused trailing, even though the Moon
phase was nearly Full, so the actual disk was about circular. The time
between pictures was 30 minutes, not 15 minutes. Therefore the shifts
of the Moon from one picture to the next are about 15 Moon diameters.
- I sent an E-mail request to NOAA for any other images
of the full Earth they have which also include the Moon in the same pictures.
Until then, let's do a quick mathematical check to see if the alleged UFO
Mother Ship was in fact the Moon.
- The mean diameter of the Moon is: 3475 km, while the
mean diameter of the Earth: 12,756 km. The mean distance of the Moon to
the Earth: 384,500 km. The approximate distance of NOAA's GOES satellite
to the Earth (since it is in geostationery orbit): 35,786 km. The approximate
distance of NOAA's GOES satellite to the Moon (since the Moon is on the
opposite side of the Earth with respect to GOES, this will be 384,500
plus 35,786 or): 420,286 km. From trigonometry we get: tan X(M) = 3475/420,286
= 8.268 x 10^-3 And tan X(E) = 12,756/35,786 = 3.564 x 10^-1 where X(M)
is the angular size of the Moon and X(E) is the angular size of the Earth.
From the inverse tans we get: X(M) = 0.47 degrees and X(E) = 19.62 degrees,
The ratio in sizes of the Earth to the Moon in the GEOS images should be
19.62/0.47 = 41.7. In other words, the Earth should appear 41.7 times
larger. The diameter of the Moon (long axis) on the GEOS images I downloaded
was about 3 mm (plus or minus 0.5 mm) and the diameter of the Earth was
96 mm (plus or minus 1.0 mm). This gives ratios as large as 97/2.5 = 38.8
or as small as 95/3.5 =27.1.
- Observations: The object in the GEOS images is smaller
than what we would expect for the Moon (assuming there is no pronounced
distortions near the edges of the GEOS images). Also, the axis of the
nearly full Moon phase (less than two days from Full Moon), should be parallel
to the Earth's N-S axis. It isn't (nonsymmetrical distortions?). Yes,
GEOS images of the Earth are taken every 30 minutes but it does not take
up to 30 minutes to take this image so no trailing of the Moon should be
evident. Note that the Moon revolves around the Earth once (360 degrees)
in just over 27 days so in a 30 minute time frame the Moon would move in
the sky by: (360 degrees / 27 days) / (24 hours x 2) = 0.27 degrees in
30 minutes. This is about a half Moon diameter, not the 15 Moon diameters
you mention. If we assume it is the Moon in the GEOS image, since it is
a few lunar diameters from the edge of the Earth and it moves about half
a lunar diameter in the sky each 30 minutes, there MUST be a few more images
of the Moon in GEOS images taken before and after this one. Conclusion:
The object in the GEOS image (taken November 21, 1999, at 14:45Z cannot
be easily explained as the Moon - it remains a UFO. Nick Balaskas, Physics
and Astronomy, York University Thanks to Bob Young <YoungBob2@aol.com
- There is some disagreement if the moon will show up on
infrared. Anyone know? The Photos are located at: http://spica.cira.colostate.edu/jpeg/325/1999325144514i08_fulldisk_c01.jpg

- RARITAN NEW JERSEY VIDEO - Extraordinary eight minutes
of video taken on V Day (Veterans Day) by Reverend Damian Barna. This
is an extraordinary UFO video shot in broad daylight on November 11, 1999,
over Middlesex County only fifteen miles from New York City. The video
tape is shows several different shaped UFOs. One is the standard disc
shape. The primary ones are two cylinder or rod shaped craft. As the cylinder
moves slowly through the sky it appears to be covered in a thin vapor.
Although it is difficult to estimate length the craft appears on the video
as at least a hundred feet long. It sends out a thin line forward an estimated
600 feet, or about six inches at arm's length. Somehow the object seems
to morph or move along the tube to the second position. The movement is
clear and distinct and may represent some sort of cloaking device. I have
never seen an object move in this manner. It seems to gradually disappear
in one spot and gradually appears as the same size and shape in another.
The video was taken at 4:50 PM over Raritan Center. This is an extraordinary
tape of very strange UFO activity. Mail your check for $19.95 for your
copy of the video to: Reverend Barna, 222 Jackson Road, Medford, NJ. 08055.

- US GOVERNMENT UFO PROOF RELEASED - Audio tapes of a genuine
UFO Alert at Edwards Air Force base and studied by the Foreign Technology
Division at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, are now available for distribution
to the public. Lunar Astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell was at Edwards the night
the UFO chase occurred. The 6th person to walk on the moon said, "The
night it happened I investigated it myself and this was a real event."
Sam Sherman's audio documentary tape called THE EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE
ENCOUNTER on the night of October 7, 1965, uses the actual voice recordings
provided by the Air Force. During this event 12 high tech luminous UFOs
invade secure air space and came down low over the runways at Edwards AFB.
Tower operator Sgt. Chuck Sorrels spotted them and notified the Air Defense
Command. Sgt. Sorrels is heard on the original tapes and in a new segment
where he verifies the event as it is heard on the archival recordings.
The UFOs are described and a decision is made to launch F-106 fighter
interceptors. You are there for an important part of UFO history. Hear
it for yourself, it's the best UFO tape ever made. Tape cost is $14.95
each plus $2.00 for shipping -- total $16.95 -- (for overseas orders-out
