World UFO sightings February 2013 [ Part 1 of 2]
Posted by dandare on February 8, 2013
Many of the sightings reported are sensationalized, with usually a lot of information missing.
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.

A good move for NARCAP (De Void)
” One web site the “skeptics” have avoided like fire ants over the last decade is the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena. That’s because NARCAP, which refers to UFOs as unidentified aerial phenomena, does real science without resorting to hype or speculation, perhaps to its own detriment. But last month, this most cautious affiliation of researchers announced its intentions to apply for nonprofit 501(c)3 status and take its mission to a broader audience ” [extract from article.

Theory about Brad Birds ‘Tomorrowland’ points to possible UFO plot (FirstShowing.net)
” Damon Lindelof might be the most famous graduate from the J.J. Abrams School of Secrecy, and it looks like the master of marketing has taught his protege well. Lindelof is teaming with Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol director Brad Bird for a new Disney science fiction movie formerly called 1952 and now titled Tomorrowland, but the cryptic campaign has only given enough info for fanboy speculation so far. Earlier this week, D23 took a more detailed look at what was in the mystery box labled “1952,” and now it seems that Disney expert Jim Hill (via AICN) may have just put the puzzle pieces together.
