Sorry for the lateness of the update……
The Ufo week has been reasonably quiet…. this is what i have picked up on, though.
To start us off, in chad.co.uk (posted 4th december,2007) it mentions “What were ‘balls of fire’ spotted in skies?“.
“Witnesses have described the glowing balls zig-zagging across the sky and moving too quickly to be fireworks, planes or helicopters.” (extract from article). Now the Ashfield Paranormal Investigation Team (TAPIT) have become involved, with people calling them up with sightings as well. Further on in the article it says “The mysterious balls were first reported in the skies above Alfreton last month, but they returned on Saturday when Warsop resident Tim Palmer spotted an unusual object at around 3.30pm”.
At baltimoresun.com (posted 9th december,2007) “Bel Air man writes of UFOs in wartime“. It is about a book being published by Keith Chester, called “Strange Company: Military encounters with UFOs in WWII”.
ufodigest.com has a very interesting article on “Mystery of the Black Triangle UFOs” (posted 7th december,2007). The most telling part of the article comes at the end (after desciptions of triangular UFOs throughout the world, with the most well known cases quickly discussed; such as in Belgium).
It says “It would be irresponsible to completely rule out that at least some recent black triangle UFOs sightings are the result of secret, manmade aircraft using technology not yet known to civilian science. But considering the history of triangle-shaped UFO sightings, we cannot escape the conclusion that there is a mystery in our skies that so far has evaded easy explanations” (extract from article).
It also points out that trianglular ufos were around since the 1930’s at least; makes you wonder, does it not?
At Spaldingtoday.co.uk, “Mystery lights seen over town” (posted 6th december,2007)…the town in question is indeed Spalding. I suspect these where possibly chinese lanterns, however there is not much information to go on in the article.
In the Canadian National Newspaper, (posted last week) it mentions “Pentagon orders Senator Barry Goldwater– don’t ask questions about UFOS and Aliens“. The article is written by Clark C. McClelland, former ScO, U.S. Space Shuttle Fleet KSC (Florida 1958-1992). His site can also be found here .
In the observer.guardian.co.uk it writes about “the many lives and loves of Shirley MacLaine ” (posted 9th december,2007). It covers not just her book, but also there is an interview, which covers most topics….. mmm it’s strange but also a bit intriguing as well.
Website of the week:
This week i would like to alert you too http://uforth.com/ your guide to ufo shapes and configurations…..

Welcome to UFO updates…
After pressure on Clinton to release files, under the FOIA, they have finally come out. In http://www.nysun.com/ (posted 9th november,2007) “Clinton library releases files on ufos“. A listing of the new files can be seen at http://www.clintonlibrary.gov/textual-foia.html#0313 . The UFO information = FOIA 2006-0492-F…. (i must add this is only a list of what is on there).
(go to www.bztoons.com to use these on your website)
At wilshireandwashington.com (posted 7th november,2007) “Shirley MacLaine “”terrific”” that Kucinich Admits seeing ufo“.
Shirley MacLaine shares her mind (Video from NBC- the today show).
CBS has a short video on “ufos and the white house” at
From PRWEB.com (posted 7th november,2007) “Pilots to tell their UFO stories for the first time” . The original source is from http://www.freedomofinfo.org/ (see this link for more. It will be held at the National Press Club, on the 12th november,2007, 11am.
Those to give evidence will be:
Fife Symington, Former Arizona Governor, Moderator
Ray Bowyer, Captain, Aurigny Air Services, Channel Islands
Rodrigo Bravo, Captain and Pilot for the Aviation Army of Chile
General Wilfried De Brouwer, former Deputy Chief of Staff, Belgian Air Force (Ret.)
John Callahan, Chief of Accidents and Investigations for the FAA, 1980’s (Ret.)
Dr. Anthony Choy, founder, 2001, OIFAA, Peruvian Air Force
Jean-Claude Duboc, Captain, Air France (Ret.)
Charles I. Halt, Col. USAF (Ret.), Former Director, Inspections Directorate, DOD I.G.
General Parviz Jafari, Iranian Air Force (Ret.)
Jim Penniston, TSgt USAF (Ret.)
Dr. Claude Poher, Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales, founder, French GEPAN
Nick Pope, Ministry of Defence, UK, 1985-2006
Dr. Jean-Claude Ribes, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, France, 1963-98
Comandante Oscar Santa Maria, Peruvian Air Force (Ret.)
“Representatives from France, England, Belgium, Chile, Peru, Iran and the US will call for the US Government to join in an international dialogue and re-open its investigation – which the Air Force shut down over 30 years ago – in cooperation with other governments currently dealing with this unusual and controversial phenomenon” (extract from article). I hope this not alot of hype, with little substance, although those involved above, are good witnesses to ufo sightings/phenomena. We will have to see.
*** update to this (posted today) from CNN relating to this meeting “Symington: I saw a UFO in the Arizona sky“….**** Also it seems, following on from the Larry King show last night (9th november), that “……this is just to establish the fact that the phenomenon is real and it’s happening worldwide” (extract from transcript of the show).
At http://www.nasa.gov/ “scientists discover record fifth planet orbiting nearby star” (posted 6th november,2007). For anybody interested (mmm, slightly on the same subject….) in meteor showers, with information and a calendar of when and where see here . To see video go here
The toowoomba chronicle mentions that ” Number of UFO sightings out of this world ” (posted 5th november,2007); “There is something alien in the skies around Toowoomba; the region has become a hot spot for unidentified flying objects (UFOs), and is leading the State in reported sightings” (extract from article).
From http://www.iol.co.za/ it states “Local say aliens; sceptics say beer ” (posted 5th november,2007). “Nevertheless, he has heard lots of tales, for example of an Aboriginal woman who was chased by a UFO.””It is a flat disc with a blue dome. It has been sighted around Alice Springs a couple of times. It chased this lady into town. She saw it again up at Wycliffe Well,”” he said…..[.]” (extract from article).
More sightings are given in this article about Wycliffe Wells in Australia, but there are sceptical thoeries for this also ….. of the beer kind. The same thing is also commented on here .
A new UFO website dedicated to Warminster, UK has been started see here . It has a wealth of information already, and will be adding to this…. To find out what it is all about, check this site out.
“Some of the greatest and most secretive airplanes in history have been developed in the Nevada desert, most of them at the now-infamous base known as Area 51. It turns out Area 51 has a sister facility — Area 52 — and it’s a place with secrets of its own” (extract from article).

If there is one thankless hobby or job in this world, it’s Amateur Astronomy. Amateur Astronomers are under-funded, underrated and always taken for granted. Yet these little giants of space science are always willing to stretch the bounds of our scientific knowledge without the need to work within the restraints of some established scientific theory or database. Despite the unappreciated nature of this endeavor and often finding themselves at odds with the scientific establishment, Amateur Astronomers are responsible for some of the most significant milestones achieved in Astronomy.
Keiichiro Okamura, a Japanese amateur astronomer, was responsible for some of the best photos ever taken of Halley’s Comet using just his telescope without the aid of computer-enhanced photography. Berto Monard of South Africa was recently honored by NASA after he became the first amateur astronomer to discover an afterglow of a gamma-ray burst, the most powerful explosion known in the Universe. Both were largely ignored or even belittled in the early years of their work.
Michael Oates is a British amateur astronomer that pioneered the technique of using advanced photo-processing techniques to search NASA’s SOHO archives for previously missed comets. Australian amateur astronomer Robert Owen Evans holds the all-time record for visual discoveries of supernovae. America’s own Clyde W. Tombaugh, began his career as an Amateur Astronomer and later discovered Pluto after being hired by Lowell Observatory in 1928.
It took years for Oates to get noticed. Evans is a Minister of the Uniting Church in Australia that has forty visual discoveries of supernovae to his credit, but was initially criticized when he began his work in the 1950s. A young and under-appreciated Clyde W. Tombaugh found his niche at Lowell Observatory. It was founded by Percival Lowell, a businessman, author, mathematician and amateur astronomer that found himself up against the scientific community after sketching what he claimed where canals on Mars. Scientists and Astronomers still argue about what may be artificial structures on the Martian surface.
Enter John Lenard Walson. He is an amateur astronomer who developed a system for photographing and video taping near earth and deep space objects. These objects appear to be huge spaceships or mega-structures built by unknown intelligences. I became aware of Walson through a fabulous new film entitled Interstellar. The film is yet another wonderful creation from eclectic filmmaker Jose Escamilla. UFO researchers and enthusiasts appreciate his work on several films which have documented the evidence for Alien visitations. Jose has once again brought forth a though-provoking, visual work of art that informs as well as it entertains.
Walson represents a new generation of twenty-first century amateur astronomers that have moved beyond merely searching for planets. Unlike most of their professional colleagues, they do not choose to ignore signs of other life in the universe. Instead, they look for and document evidence for those signs. Carl Sagan once summed up the twentieth century attitude of most Astronomers by saying, “I’m looking for stars, moons and planets. I’m not looking for E.T. That’s not tangible science.”
John Lenard Walson’s contraption is unique and his methods as yet unproven, however, he has a substantial body of amazing images. He also has some fans in the scientific community. Astronomers and others from Academia have visited this photographic wunderkind and left impressed with his techniques. Sadly, his work may be the best-kept secret in Amateur Astronomy. I certainly haven’t seen anything about him in the main stream media. However, I believe that will change as the new film from Jose Escamilla takes hold on TBLN.
Interstellar showcases his work and helps make the vast distances of space seem a bit less expansive and empty. The film runs for thirty minutes and is a must-see for anyone interested in space science and the search for extra-terrestrials. It’s fresh air to people like me that have had to endure years of constant skepticism by the majority of Astronomers. Most cannot or will not give credence to any evidence that proves the existence of life outside of our own. Those that tip their hat to the idea of other forms of life in the universe turn right around and claim that it’s just not capable of visiting us.
If astronomers, scientists and the news media are skeptical of John Lenard Walson, he’s in good company. Like the pioneers of astronomy that came before him, Walson is destined to change the minds of many. I hope his work and the film that has done such a masterful job of documenting it will do more than that. It’s my desire to see the direction of astronomy move away from ignoring evidence for extra-terrestrial life forms and back into the business of investigating it.
It wasn’t that long ago that scientists and astronomers believed that the universe was more than just a gathering of lifeless heavenly bodies. Some felt it was “teeming with life.” It’s always been my feeling that a few key scientists and astronomers owing their grants and careers directly or indirectly to government funds or intervention sold out. Being already skeptical by nature, they sold out their profession and lead others along by their influence to a place far removed from the assumption of life other than human in the far reaches of space.
The work of John Lenard Walson and ground-breaking filmmakers like Jose Escamilla provides hope for a more objective tomorrow among scientists, astronomers and the media. Having watched the film, I am not a fan because I research UFOs. I am a fan because no one has given me reason to doubt the amazing images I see recorded from the modest telescope lens of J. L. Walson. Watch and make up your own mind. You can read more about the film and view a trailer at http://Interstellar.UFOguy.com

Time Travel And Time Slips
By Kenneth J. McCormick
Time, the word evokes a unit of measure that allows us to realize how long it is from one point in our life to another. Put more simply it is the interval between two events. It also denotes how long we are on this earth or alive. Time also pertains to how long it takes the Earth to circle it’s Sun. Our calendar has time as it’s basis. In the early days time was thought of as more two dimensional. It was just something that passed. No matter what you did, you just couldn’t alter that fact. Even today we don’t have the ability to change time or do we? We can change it ever so slightly now by traveling in a rocket. Einstein stated that the faster you go the more time slows down. We have observed this phenomena in practice when atomic clocks were put into orbit and slowed down slightly due to their speed orbiting the Earth. But are there other facets of time that we don’t yet understand, is time some sort of dimension that can be entered and exited? We really don’t have these answers yet, but if this is true then we might have time travelers from the future among us right now without realizing it. If we do, could they be changing the future by making changes in our present that we are not even aware of?
There have been certain claims made by people that have to do with time. The year was 1935 and Air Marshal Sir Victor Goddard of the British Royal Air Force was flying his biplane. He flew over an old abandoned air field that was covered with growth from the plant life of the area. Clearly the field wasn’t even being maintained anymore. Strange yellowish storm clouds lay ahead and the Air Marshall could not avoid them. He grit his teeth as he flew into one and the air around him decided to swat his plane. Down he went narrowly avoiding a crash. When he began to pull up he noticed that he was almost over that old abandoned airstrip, but there was a problem, it wasn’t abandoned anymore. There were not only biplanes on the field but also monoplanes and they were painted yellow and the crews wore blue coveralls. Another thing that he noticed that was very strange was the fact that he was completely unnoticed even though he was flying low. The storm caught up with him and when he got out of it the field looked abandoned again. It wasn’t until 1939 that the field was reactivated and crews began to wear blue coveralls and planes were painted yellow. What happened here, did the Air Marshall enter the future and return, it sure looks that way. We know that not only will clocks slow down as speed increases but there is another important effect. As gravity decreases clocks tick faster. So we can assume that it isn’t only speed that effects time, it is also gravity. Could the Air Marshall’s plane have achieved some sort of dive that put him into a state where he was able to have broken free of the present time?
People talk about seeing ghosts and spirits. Many times they seem to be unaware of anyone else in the area. Most of the current thinking is that this means that someplace is haunted, but what if this isn’t true? What if the place is not haunted but some sort of a time portal is projecting the past? Does this sound foolish to you? Does it sound anymore foolish than a haunting? One must always keep an open mind. What might seem foolish today might be routine tomorrow. Another bizarre story tells of a man that returned to this time from 2036 in a Corvette that had a military time travel device attached to it. He even put the photos of it on the internet and they can be seen at http://www.idlewords.com/weblog.09.2003.html this link must be copied and put into the browser’s address bar to go to the site because I don’t have permission for a link. He claimed that he met his younger self who lived in the home. He has said to have moved on only leaving his younger self somewhere in Florida.
At least one person, Dr. Bruce Goldberg, claims that he has met many time travelers. He states that they are all around us and they use dimensional travel. Because of this they are not what we would think of as solid in this dimension and can move through objects that are impassable to mere mortals of this time, such as walls, trees and such. He goes on further to state that they are invisible and this is some sort of byproduct of this type of time travel which will be discovered in the year 3050. He has written the book “Time Travelers From Our Future”
Some people believe that contrary to the thought that a time traveler must be very careful not to alter anything, he can’t alter anything because he can’t pick up or touch anything. They believe that everything can be seen. It is sort of like watching a move. You can watch it and even enjoy it, but you can’t change the story. They go on to say that no one will even be able to see you or talk to you. I have no way of knowing if this is true or not and there are many conflicting theories on this subject, but I sort of favor this one. The reason I like it, is that it sort of indicates that we might be only watching an image of the past and I have believed for a long time that this is much more likely than getting into the actual past which is gone. Some will argue that this is not really time travel, but maybe it is the best we can do.
Some claim that when they had near death experiences, they traveled in time. One man stated that when he thought he was going to die he saw twelve different dramatic world events. All of these events came true in his future. He stated that he actually lived these events before they happened. He had traveled into the future and was then returned back to his own time. It has been said that time is like a river flowing forward but full of eddies and currents. Will one of us ever get swept in the wrong direction by one of these currents, who can say?
Lastly the famous Philadelphia Experiment was said to be an experiment in electronic camouflage that went bad and produced time travel. For those of you that don’t know what I am talking about, the story goes that a U.S. Navy destroyer was fitted with a special generator in 1943. The purpose was to make the ship invisible. The ship was transported when the generator was turned on and some say it also went through time. There are no records that can be found to verify any of these statements.

As i’ll be away from this friday until late sunday evening, the update is coming out slightly earlier this week. If there is anything you would like to have included on the weekly update, or if there is anything you would like covered in general, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org , and i’ll see what i can do.
With the latest intriguing event, that of the peru fireball, National Geographic have written an article entitled “Meteor crash in Peru caused Mysterious illness” (posted 21st September,2007). They say that local Peruvian scientists, have analysed it, and it is of a rare meteor type.
“Numerous arsenic deposits have been found in the subsoils of southern Peru, explained Modesto Montoya, a nuclear physicist who collaborated with the team. The naturally formed deposits contaminate local drinking water.” (quote from article above).
This they think, could have created the conditions (with the impact of the meteor) in the illnesses that later resulted.
In the American Chronicle, Frank Warren has written an article on “Officials in Peru State That The Fallen UFO is a Chondrite Meteor“. It goes into quite alot of detail and covers all areas, even with links and updates to the article, to include other sources; it also proves that alot of conflicted reporting and speculation has taken place, and quite evidently, some of it is not true.
Unfortunately i missed the anniversary of the Majestic 12 on september 24th ; here is an article by wired entitled “Sept. 24, 1947: MJ-12 — We Are Not Alone … Or Are We?”.
It mentions “1947: If the secret committee known as the Majestic 12 ever really existed, this is the day that the group was allegedly created by a memorandum from President Harry Truman” (extract from wired article).
There in lies the problem, did it ever exist? I do not know if they are real or not? there is a link to tests made (article in PRweb here ), however, i find problems with Michael S. Heiser, who also has other hidden agenda’s…but i’ll leave it up to you to decide.
From the article “A total of 17 documents were tested, allegedly written by nine different authors. Dr. Heiser typed the prose text of the disputed Majestic Documents and a set of undisputed control documents for each author for Dr. Chaski’s testing. Of the 17 documents tested, only one can be scientifically validated as having been written by the author who is named……[.].” OymyNews.com also has an article on this “The Majestic Hall of Mirrors “.
It is claimed that “Parallel universes exist – study” (source breitbart.com, september 23rd, 2007). They mention that “Parallel universes really do exist, according to a mathematical discovery by Oxford scientists described by one expert as “one of the most important developments in the history of science” (extract from article).
An article “UFOs kept secret by U.S. in nationalist fervor?” caught my eye, (in The Register-Herald, posted september 8th,2007). Most of the article is about Stanton friedman, who was “A physicist who once worked for such giants as Westinghouse and General Electric, he has devoted much of his adult life to ferreting out clues in the UFO controversy.” (extract from article).
In English Pravda.ru there is “KGB’s secret UFO files finally made public” which is an old source, but one i was not aware of until now (posted december 12th,2005). It mentions the declassification of the Blue Folder…“Researchers believe the Blue Folder is an invaluable source of information” (extract from article).
In recent news, KodiakDailyMirror.com (posted 26th september,2007) reports that “UFO mystifies local officials Aircraft accounted for, no craters found during search“. breitbart.com (posted 24th september,2007) says that “NASA aims to put man on Mars by 2037 ” ….i’m surprised not sooner….unless you believe that they have not landed on the moon? (although for the record, i do believe they have landed).
Finally, to my old favourite chinese lanterns/ufo balloons….. in newburytoday.co.uk (posted 26th september,2007), it mentions “Newburytoday.co.uk investigates possible explanation for string of UFO sightings above district“. It goes into some detail about the sightings in their area (involving orange lights,and so on), with a video, in which they use a ufo balloon, to demonstrate the effects that it has at night……

Posted by dandare on August 25, 2007
On the 24th August, American Chronicle posted this article “Breaside Fort Beaufort, Suoth Africa- South African Police Fire At UFO” This event happened in 1972 and there is an extensive description plus added information on the case (HBCC UFO Research are responsible for the information, which is still ongoing).
At the bucks free press (posted 16th august,2007), the argument still goes on as to what was in the sky see here … extracts explain…
“In recent weeks numerous sky watchers have been sending in pictures and recounting their tales of red glowing lights and strange unidentifiable flying objects better known as UFOs”. But, in a later development
“However, two teenage party girls have revealed that they believe all the fuss was created by Chinese lanterns they used at two birthday parties in Maidenhead”.
Whoever it was, this is the most likely reason for the sightings i’m afraid.
At the blog DE VOID, there is an article on (posted 17th august,2007) ” Richardson: no comment on ufos” in which it mentions “Five weeks into efforts to obtain UFO policy positions from Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bill Richardson, De Void has finally received a reply from the latter”.
Browsing through the SpaceWeather (spaceweather.com) site i came across the MySKY ; a handheld astronomy helper..you point it at the object in the sky, and it tells you what it is, with added information…. (i think it costs around $399). An interesting device to get to know the night sky quickly/easily, although there are other resources too, such as maps of the night sky. Another excellent resource for all this is heavens-above.com ; it gives detailed information of satellites, space shuttle, international space station (star chart tracking) and other astronomical data…all are real time generated. This is all valuable information as you watch the night sky.
At Space.com there are some wallpapers you can download….. see here for page ; i wouldn’t recommend them for ufo articles however!
Also try Aliens UFOs Proof Sceensaver (zip) it has alot on here “has cool sound effects, beautiful music, photos of space, some DVD screenshots we like, an art gallery, and a mention of our friend’s Web sites. It is very easy to install and doesn’t mess with your PC”! A 3d flying saucer here, and Objects in the sky here . All these are from zdnet.com.
Please only download these sceensavers if you believe them to be safe; i do not endorse the safety of these links, although i have had no problems with zdnet.com. I will be trying out some of these links myself soon too, however.
After all that has gone on at airports recently, both in the air and on the ground, i recently came across this google video
After alot of pilots are suppressed from reporting ufo sightings (some have lost their jobs, and suffered intimidation,ect) it proves that events still leak through. Also of passing interest on google video is the washington D.C. intrusion of 2002 (and other midwest sightings)
A useful resource can be found at Internet sacred text archive (the ufo files index)…well worth a look.
Lastly this week, is the ufo World cup series…. mmmm…well ok of the dog variety, catching frisbees; with throw & catch, freestyle and other categories. Unfortunately my dog isn’t the slightest interested in frisbees? oh well.
