Many of the sightings reported are sensationalized, with usually a lot of information missing.

Please keep this in mind as you view these postings from the local and national press.

greek-plane

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.

One of the ‘craft’ emerges from the shadowy landscape of the moon’s surface and then seemingly accelerates over the craters. It then changes direction at breakneck speed towards the bottom of the screen ” [extract from article].

Three digital images taken Dec. 29 by an unattended wildlife camera on a deer lease near Nixon appear to show a series of anomalies in the sky and near the ground, says Fletcher Gray, deputy investigator with the Strike Team Area Research (STAR) unit of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).

diamondUFOResidents are asking how anyone could have mistaken a C5 Galaxy cargo plane, one of the biggest and noisiest planes in the world for a silent, “unusually low” and slow-flying pyramid UFO. While the C5 could have been mistaken for a diamond or triangular-shaped object because of its wings, it is unlikely that observers would have confused the 250 feet long C5 flying low over the sky with a pyramid or diamond-shaped UFO, “the size of two or three cars “ ” [extract from article].

Mariana Flynn, the president of UFO Research NSW, visited Mr Nott two weeks ago to observe firsthand what he was seeing.

The sad thing is that the majority of these hurt the UFO Truth movement immensely.

In an odd move, the unnamed source refuses to name his “contact,” but a name has been stamped on the image.

“The contact had forgotten this image until he recently went through some old SD memory cards and came across it just before Christmas. He contacted me immediately and we cannot find any conventional explanation for this sphere” ” [extract from article].

He said the craft appeared around dusk above the beach on Dec. 30, and it was triangular in shape. The eyewitness also noted the anomalous object was soundless, so that would rule out some type of conventional aircraft.
