“the Abduction Lamp” . It is still at the concept stage at the moment, but could have potential.
Following on from the pheonix lights article, i wrote about recently…. at azcentral.com it discusses “Retooled documentary takes look at Pheonix Lights” (posted 13th march,2008); Also, azfamily.com “still explaining Pheonix Lights 11 years later” (posted 13th march,2008).
At lovefm.com “Belmopan residents report sightings of UFOs” (posted 12th march,2008), in which “a few residents in the Belmopan area saw some bright lights over the hills in the direction of the University Heights area last night. We were told that the unidentified objects were bright fire ball like lights that came on and off for about 30 seconds at a time” (extract from article).
In the UK, the halifaxcourier.com seems to maintaining the bragging rights in “Unexplained light above Halifax helps make west yorkshire UFO hot spot” (posted 14th march,2008). The survey was done by Virgin media (in the virgin media files, under UFOs)…
For those not in the UK, this is owned by Richard Branson…….
I’m sure some other local newspaper, will be claiming its the UK UFO hotspot, before long though….
Staying in the UK, the lutontoday.co.uk mentions “Plenty more UFO sightings to report in Luton area” (posted 13th march,2008).
It mentions “Since last week’s article about mystery lights in the skies over Luton and Houghton Regis, this newsdesk has been inundated with readers sharing their own experiences.
From witnesses, sceptics and self-professed UFO fanatics, here is a selection of the responses….” (extract from article).
In the Islingtongazette.co.uk (posted 11th march,2008) “MOD inquiry into Archway UFO mystery” , covers the sighting from a year ago, and what has happened since… It says
“Now the Gazette can reveal that top level government agencies looked into the phenomenon – which many believe was nothing more than floating Chinese lanterns.
The Gazette sent a Freedom of Information request to the Ministry demanding to see every document relating to the Archway incident, as well as a total cost of the investigation” (extract from article).
In turkey, at toplumpostasi.net “UFO” (posted 12th march,2008) it mentions
“The sighting of a UFO this week has excited the Turkish media with pictures appearing in both tabloid style and more serious broadsheet papers this week. The flying object was spotted in the Karaköprü area of Şanlıurfa province towards 4am on Wednesday morning” (extract from article).
It goes on to mention a turkish ufo video (no link is given to it though, so i cannot comment on it)….. however, it does mention past ufo sightings in the country, which is of more interest.
Although the group siriusufo.org is talked about, but to me, it is not a reliable source of information on this topic. To be fair, the article is critical of sirius, saying that it is more interested in getting people to go to the ufo museum, than anything else. The article was done by Fazile Zahir…..
elpasotimes.com has “Police say object was blimp with lights” (posted 13th march,2008).
“A supposed UFO spotted floating over Socorro on Wednesday night was a blimp with lights around it, a Socorro police dispatcher said” (extract from article).
(not related to articles, although it looks more like me, on the night shift)
nugget.ca (north bay nugget) talks of “Fire balls likely meteors, astronomy researchers say” (posted 13th march,2008). It mentions “Dave Roscoe, president of the North Bay Astronomy Club, mused Monday the sightings may have been debris from a U.S. spy satellite shot down Feb. 20.
And he said Tuesday in an e-mail the website http://www.heavens-above.com is reporting it’s not unrealistic for such debris to re-enter the atmosphere three or four weeks after it broke up. Roscoe said the site also indicates this area passes through the path of re-entry once or twice a day.
Edwards, however, said debris would be moving at a much slower pace than fast-moving fire balls witnesses have described. And he said a meteor is a much more likely explanation” (extract from article).
In the new scientist “Swarm of meteorites may solve Peru impact mystery” (posted 12th march,2008)….. when it hit, there were claims it was a crashed alien craft by some…. not me, i hasten to add.
It is an interesting article, well worth a read.
“Mysterious lights appear in WA sky” (posted 1oth march,2008), “THE mystery behind the lights which appeared over WA skies early this morning has been solved. The Perth Observatory says the lights were caused by a meteorite building up in the atmosphere” (extract from article). Looks more like its meteorite updates week….. than ufo updates.
Robbie Williams now, “[...]…is planning to splash out £2.5 million on an alien observatory” (extract from article) from stuff.co.nz entitled “Robbie wants close encounter” (posted 15th march,2008).
The Associated Press has, “House for sale: non-earthlings welcome” (posted 15th march,2008).
Also of interest:- “UFO book authors to present findings” (posted 10th march,2008).
