World UFO Sightings April 2013 [part 1 of 2]
Posted by dandare on April 4, 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.
New polls reveal UFO beliefs in U.S., British Columbia (openminds.tv)
Results from a poll conducted by Insights West in Canada’s province of British Columbia were published on April 1, which explored the conspiracy theory beliefs of British Columbians. An incredible 52% of the citizens polled believe UFOs exist.
A similar poll in the U.S. was conducted by Public Policy Polling, and it examined how democrats and republicans differ on conspiracy theory beliefs. The results, published on April 2, reveal that 21% of voters say a UFO crashed in Roswell, NM in 1947 and the US government covered it up. And 29% of voters believe aliens exist.
Go on believing in UFOs if that’s your thing. You have just as much reason to do so after reading Hottel’s memo, since it doesn’t refute the existence of the downed saucers. Just remember that intelligence reports that seem like smoking guns are usually more smoke than gun.

“It is possible I may be able to shed some light on this sighting with, unfortunately, a rather terrestrial answer,” said the reader, who did not wish to be named.
“Over the past two weeks we have been testing a small remote controlled drone equipped with a digital camera which can record both video and still images.
“This is highly likely to be what your photographer has captured.

Did Bob See a UFO? (Ealing today)
I will never find the answer to what I saw that night. All I know for certain is that it was unlike anything I’ve ever seen (or probably ever will see) in the sky, travelled impossibly fast and used a totally silent means of propulsion in doing so…
UFO seen over North Hykeham? (This is Lincolnshire)
Stephen Melusco, from Lynmouth Close, said he went outside to observe stars and saw the dark delta or dart-shaped object travelling across the sky at about 9.15pm on April 5.
“It appeared to be travelling north east to west and was quite fast and may have been the size of medium size aircraft,” he said.
“The sighting lasted 4 or 5 seconds. There were no on-board lights and no engine sounds.
“I only saw it because there where some low clouds at that time with street lights from Lincoln Road or NK in the distance which made the object appear lighter.”(whole article posted here).
O’Hare exhibit includes ‘UFO video’ ( UPI.com)
The 2006 video involves a pilot flying at 38,000 feet having a conversation with the control tower. The pilot reports seeing an object at his “10 o’clock” that rapidly changes colors before vanishing. The air controller reports seeing nothing unusual.
Roberto Sarmiento, head of the Transportation Library and curator of the online exhibit, said the site also pays tribute to Ralph Burke, who wrote the original 1948 master plan for O’Hare.
“Burke deserves much of the credit for forging an innovative plan that, eventually and for the most part, became a reality,” Sarmiento said.
The exhibit can be viewed at library.northwestern.edu/libraries-collections/evanston-campus/transportation-library/collection/ohare50.
UFO film to provide proof that aliens exist ( ZEENews.com)
An upcoming documentary film about UFOs has claimed that it will be offering evidence of aliens’ existence including the cutting-edge scientific analysis of a recovered body.
The film, which premieres on April 22, is titled ‘ Sirius’ and showcases the claims of Steven Greer, a prominent UFO researcher, to prove that the US government is actively covering up hard evidence of extraterrestrial life.
The project has taken several years, and money to fund the film was raised from donors and UFO believers.
Sirius Film DEBUNKED – UFO News – Aliens Exist: Alien Dissection Fraud ( ringsidereport.com)
The extraordinary claims surrounding the film “SIRIUS” has me scratching my head. As an investigator of UFOs, I am always looking for real proof but this new documentary is already starting to stink.
The comments at the end of this article are condeming, however, i have to be honest, and say that i am not a fan of Greer,who has damaged the UFO community….

‘It Was Not a Plane:’ UFO Sighting in Egg Harbor Township ( newjerseynewsroom.com)
On the Mutual UFO Network website, the witness’s response was logged:
“I was sitting on my back porch watching the doves in the trees i saw a small object coming from from the left about 200 or 300 ft. off the ground across the trees in front of me above my house. It then looked like a bird to me at first then it looked like balloons and then it got closer, I could see what it was, it looked gun black, about 10 ft round and 6 to 8 ft tall. It looked like a thread bobbing, it flew across the sky, the same speed and until it went out of my sight. It took about 30 seconds to go from left to right, absolutely no noise, it blew my mind. I could not believe I saw that in the sky. I live 2 miles from FAA center in New Jersey. I have seen every plane that the air force has flown over my house, it was not a plane.”
