World UFO sightings [July 2009] Updated regularly
Posted by dandare on October 11, 2009
Many of the sightings reported are sensationalized, with usually alot of information missing.
Please keep this in mind as you view these postings from the local and national press.
I’m afraid many also fail to follow up on their initial leads, and many reports just remain forgotten.
Some incidents could be UFO balloons (please see: http://dandare.wordpress.com/2007/05/19/ufo-balloons-what-are-they/ for more details, from a previous article). There are also many other IFOs ( Identified Flying Objects they could be as well).
However, as i have said before, i am not sure what value they are to any UFO research.
Please be patient whilst i catch up on information/links/articles…. thank you.
