World UFO sightings November 2012 [Updated regularly] part 2 of 2

Posted by dandare on November 17, 2012

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.

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.

Also for real-time UFO map from MUFON see here

Please be patient whilst i catch up on information/links/articles…. thank you.

Readers correct to exercise caution with early UFO reporting ( examiner.com )

Reporting on incoming UFO cases allows early news on selected reports to reach a wider audience, but does leave a wide door open that does not include expert analysis on identifiable objects that are man made or produced by Mother Nature. The few incidents of hoaxing is also a possibility.

This story opens at 2:30 p.m. on November 8, 2012, near Rachel by the “black mailbox spot at Area 51” – a slice of UFO coverage that may have already been over-reported during the past few decades with an endless supply of documentaries and network television summaries ” [extract from article].

North West News: Drivers report strange lights over 1-205 in Vancouver ( oregonlive.com)

(I was looking from) the 63rd Street overpass over the 205 and I saw off toward the south three red-orange lights that were drifting easterly slowly that then seemingly vanished. As I continued to watch, I observed four more red-orange lights rising up from a single point on the horizon, separated by about 45 seconds each[extract from article].

No light in the tunnel ( De Void )

Either way, this is a rare convergence of science and journalism, one so desperately missing from America’s unending conundrum with The Great Taboo. Between now and the long wait before the next time, we’ll continue to choke down the sort of “X-Files” swill ladled out by the likes of Fox 4 in Naples[extract from article].

We’re not mad, you are! Happy Mondays’ Shaun Ryder criticised by UFO researcher for alien hunt TV show (Mancunian Matters).

John Wickham of the British UFO Research Association (BUFORA) said the program would not look at the serious side of the subject.

He said the media were narrow-minded as they portrayed all UFO spotters mad and accused the government covering up a lot of things.

He added: “They [the media] portray people interested in the subject as mad. The media are only interested in entertainment value when they don’t have much else to report on ” ” [extract from article].

UFOs to the ratings rescue? (De Void)

Great instincts, but let’s be clear. No, you didn’t talk to all the experts. Please interview more than one. Also: Those platoons of amateur videographers you showed standing watch at Federal Heights, the prescribed vista for shooting UFOs — have they caught anything? Did you look at their footage? And sorry, you DO know what else to do, you even mentioned it on the show: conduct some triangulating camera work ” [extract from article].

Massive UFO in cloud near Cape Canaveral? ( News.gather.com)

To be totally truthful, you can’t tell whether this is a spaceship, or just a bunch of clouds which look like one. It’s a big universe out there, with many mysteries beyond the scope of human comprehension. Regardless, this encounter still raises some interesting questions, because it happened on Florida’s “Space Coast,” on the Atlantic Ocean. It’s certainly an alarming sight, whatever it may be ” [extract from article].

If you really knew how much behind the scenes research that goes on that we never hear about, it would amaze you. I am ex-military and have been around many Top Secret pieces of technology I cannot discuss.  At one point, I held Top Secret Clearance when I was in the Army as a result of my duties.

How US government spun the UFO tale (JSonline.com)

Thieme joined “The UFO History Group” consortium of researchers/writers, including Michael Swords and Robert Powell, who spent four years delving into the response the U.S. government and other world agencies have given the UFO phenomenon. The group used government documents and other archival sources to explore what military and intelligence insiders think about UFOs and their possible threat to world security.

The book includes Wisconsin UFO sightings – a 1951 report from St. Croix and Marinette in 1956.

“UFOs and Government” readers might find the book unsettling for what it reveals about how governments operate and about the UFO phenomenon itself ” [extract from article].

US UFO Disclosure follow up post [with Robert Stanley's article included]

Posted by dandare on November 17, 2008

Following on from my blog post entitled “million fax to Washington – 77 days to change the World” i had an interesting e-mail fromRobert Stanley, referring to an article he has made available - i refer to it below in full; quite a few people have expressed an opinion that there will be no disclosure on UFOs, and some saying that the US government have nothing of interest on them.secretfile

 I am going to be honest, and say that i do not know what they have on the UFO subject, but the fact that they have given us nothing of worth, is not helping them at all. This is reflected in the light that the french have given us UFO information, and recently the British government, has started giving us UFO files (the first batch in may, another in November and more on the way).

This is to be commended, and therefore it follows, that the US should at the least, give us what information they have similar to the British government (although this is not disclosure as such, it would be a start). I also wonder, how much the goverments of the world know on UFOs, and whether they have just ignored it, feeling that it will just go away (hopefully). 

Therefore i feel it is worth taking part, as the more pressure we can place on those in government, the more likely we are of achieving our goals.

We all have different goals and different expectations, but i believe that we should all unite, and exert pressure, to demand more on what they know about UFOs.

The post by Robert Stanley: [please note: due to the size of my page on this blog, i had to redo the article from Robert Stanley.....i hope i have done it reasonable justice,if not i apologise...please see the original article here ].

Open Lettern
to President Elect Obama  

 (includes photos)

Dear President Elect Obama,
 
Your campaign was based on a simple, but profound promise — change. There is one important aspect of the current bureaucracy in Washington, D.C., that desperately needs to change — UFO secrecy. 
 
As president elect you have most likely been briefed on the more than 240 alien incursions of the restricted/prohibited airspace over Washington, D.C., that have transpired since 1948. Pentagon intelligence officers may have also briefed you on the failed military intercepts that occurred in this same period. 

Some of these hostile intercepts proved fatal to our veteran, combat pilots — a tragic waste of life. However, the attempted military intercepts in 1948, 1952, 2002, etc. are what directly led to the current political stance on this subject — total silence.

Despite the fact that hundreds of people have seen and or photographed non-terrestrial, exotic aerospace craft passing over sensitive areas of Washington, D.C., we are told that officially nothing unusual is going on.

This situation has got to change. However, I am certain that your transition team leaders, specifically John Podesta, will urge you not to address this issue publicly.

You see, in 2005, soon after i broke the story internationally of UFOs being photographed over the Capitol, I spoke at length with Mr. Podesta’s public relations firm in D.C. because they had issued press releases regarding their desire to end UFO secrecy . Therefore, it seemed like a good idea to contact them because I was looking for a public official to address the UFO situation in D.C. on the record.
 
However, I was told by Podesta’s people that despite the fact that most of these violation of U.S. airspace by UFOs were witnessed by credible citizens of D.C. and or seen or radar scopes, and or photographed, no one holding political or public office would be willing to officially address the issue.
 
The reason for the official silence was actually quite simple. No one really knew what to do about it. More importantly, if an elected official were to officially admit anything publicly regarding the ongoing UFO incursions of U.S. airspace… that individual (and perhaps their federal agency) would be held personally responsible by the public to deal with the problem. 

During your campaign, you stated your willingness to have a dialogue with all world leaders regardless of their political views. Are you also willing to engage in an open, diplomatic dialogue with the occupants of the unidentified aerospace craft visiting Washington, D.C.? If not, why not?

newcover

As reported in my book “Close Encounters on Capitol Hill,” according to NATO’s classified UFO threat assessment in the 1960s, many of the occupants of these exotic space craft are in fact human and that the others species were various types of intelligent humanoids.

More importantly, NATO concluded that these interplanetary people did not pose a direct threat to our national or international security. If that is true, then why should we continue to deny the existence of human beings from other worlds and refuse to engage them in open, diplomatic debate?

In closing, I would like to make it crystal clear that this is an ongoing situation that will not go away simply by ignoring or denying it exists. Exotic, non-terrestrial spacecraft have historically been sighted and or photographed all over the world. But, they are extremely interested in Washington, D.C.

To illustrate my point, listed below are some of the most recent eyewitness accounts and photographs from our nation’s capital.

Respectfully,

Robert M. Stanley

The following violation of controlled airspace took place in Washington, D.C., at approximately 9:00 p.m., on September 23, 2008. According to one of the witnesses, “My family and I were driving down Constitution Street when we first saw three unidentified lights moving very smoothly and rather slowly behind the Freedom statue that stands on top of the Capitol building’s rotunda.When we got to Union Station, we had a better view of the Capitol and the UFOs were still in sight, but now they were going in a different direction. On our way back home, we got the best view yet of these UFOs.
 
We could see the light on these craft were circular, but since it was night we couldn’t actually see the actual structure of the spacecraft. We went back to Capitol Hill later that night with binoculars, but we didn’t see anything. However when we were there, a security helicopter was flying around the Capitol with a search light.”  

Another violation of controlled airspace transpired in Washington, D.C., at 10:06 p.m., on August 17, 2008. According to the photographer/witness, “While standing on a roof top on 13th and N streets NW, I captured a high-resolution image of a spherical UFO that left a trail of energy as it accelerated into the night sky.

I was using a Nikon D700 which is the most advanced digital camera currently available on the market. My sample shows a bright, white, egg-shaped anomaly with blue and red lights that is leaving a trail of residual energy at a 45 degree angle. No noise was heard? The image I obtained is extraordinary!”

Another violation of controlled airspace took place in Washington, D.C., at approximately 8:00 p.m., on August 13, 2008. According to one of the witnesses, “My friends and I were on a trip to D.C. That evening, we were walking west on the National Mall towards the Smithsonian Metro Station when I noticed a strange object in the sky.
 
It appeared to be cylindrical in shape and dark, gray maybe or a dull metallic color; it was relatively well offset by the colors of the evening sky so it was plainly visible to the naked eye. It seemed to be fairly large and distant and was totally stationary for some time.
 
After I first noticed it I didn’t point it out until I realized that it had not moved at all for close to thirty seconds. I then pointed the UFO out to my four friends who all saw it, but we could not decide what it was. The general consensus seemed to be that it might be a kite of some sort, but to me it seemed too high in the sky and too large to be a kite. 

Also, the area of the sky [which is restricted/prohibited airspace] it was in did not see like a place where anyone would fly a kite of any sort. I pulled out my cell phone to take a picture of the UFO.

The clouds behind the object could be seen clearly on the screen, but the UFO did not appear in my camera despite that fact that as I mentioned before it was plainly visible to the naked eye, a fact that I pointed out to my friends who all saw it. If I recall correctly, I also heard someone in another group that we passed that night mention that they witnessed the UFO.

The strange object remained stationary for several minutes before moving slightly down and to the right and away from our view. The object was perhaps 30 to 40 degrees in the sky to the WNW, generally in the area of the sky between the Washington monument and the White House, but probably more distant.

It particularly struck me as odd because this is not a residential area, and as far as I know restricted air space, also this is the area of the sky were aircraft approach Reagan National airport.”

 public comments page

Another violation of controlled airspace occurred in Washington, D.C., at 8:09 p.m. on August 4, 2007. An anonymous photographer was taking pictures while standing at the Washington Monument which is the center of P51 (prohibited/restricted) airspace of the nation’s capital.
 
The photographer did not see the triangular UFO while taking the picture. Photographic analysis shows the UFO was emitting an exotic energy field propulsion as it moved through the sky — see image below.

All went well, and they are well on course for joining the International Space Station…. I know this has nothing to do with UFOs, but i am still fascinated with space, and all that it entails.

I forgot to also give another link….. see it here . On the right hand side there are alternative views (best for images is windows media player- go to other viewing options, link is there). What’s on will show you times of events…. should be good when it gets to the ISS.

I always get a buzz from watching it live…. great viewing.

Million fax to Washington – 77 days to change the world

Posted by dandare on November 13, 2008

beulah_hynek_1961The Paradigm Research Group has put forward a plan entitled:

Million Fax on Washington

Between November 5, 2008 and January 20, 2009 – seventy-seven days – send a letter, fax and/or email to the senatorial office and transition headquarters of the President Elect Barack Obama calling for the next administration to end the Truth Embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence and release as much relevant information to the American people as possible within reasonable constraints of national security. You won’t be alone. The goal is one million ” ( extract from article).

It goes on to mention why you should do it, what you should know, basic points to draw from your letter, fax and so on; plus additional information, and contact information.

A youtube video on this can be seen below

The Paradigm Research Group can be seen at http://www.paradigmresearchgroup.org/

I also believe (i think), that this effort will be international in scope, and citizens of other countries are also being encouraged to contact the new American president.

As an update to a post i made at  http://dandare.wordpress.com/2008/03/11/jodrell-bank-faced-with-closure-sign-10-downing-street-petition-online/

The Jodrell bank campaign is alive and kicking…. see this video below.

Basically the observatory could be closed if the funding for MERLIN is cut; now a campaign is starting to try and save it; started by both the manchester evening news , and silk fm.

The song is to be released on april 21st, 2008 as a download only single.

Jodrell Bank faced with closure – sign 10 downing street petition online

Posted by dandare on March 11, 2008

dish385_297810a.jpg

 

Jodrell bank, in the North West (Cheshire, UK) is being faced with closure …..In the Times online (posted 6th march,2008) “World leading telescopes face being shut down to save £2.5m” .

It mentions “Merlin’s strength comes from having seven telescope dishes, including the Lovell telescope at Jodrell Bank, linked to receive signals from space simultaneously. Because they operate in tandem up to 135 miles apart they offer unrivalled detail on distant gallaxies” (extract from article). 

This is a disgrace, and i urge you to sign the 10 downing street petition (closing date september 6th,2008). see here . Last time i looked here, there were over 3000 signatures.

There is also an interesting article by the telegraph.co.uk (posted 7th march,2008) “UK astronomers to broadcast adverts to aliens“.

It says “The cosmic stunt marks a small step for man, a giant leap for advertising hype and underlines the desperation of British astronomers to find new sources of funding as they struggle to cope with swingeing cuts that now threaten institutions such as Jodrell Bank, the world famous observatory in Cheshire” (extract from article).

And “Alongside the risks to these and other projects is a 25 per cent cut in the STFC research grants to universities that will see numbers of postdoctoral researchers in space science and astronomy fall to their lowest level for seven years” (extract from article).

UFOs are here! The Deyo Dairies volume 1 with Stan Deyo

Posted by dandare on March 6, 2008

After looking through videos online, the Deyo Dairies caught my eye….. The video is 1hour 24 minutes long…the video description at google mentions……. 

Featuring: Steven Spielberg, Stan Deyo, Jacques Vallee, Prof. Allen Hynek, Stanton Friedman, Margaret Mead, Ken Arnold, Betty Hill, Rev. William Gill, Klaus Nobel, RAAF Sqdn Ldr White, Ray Palmer and Colin Cameron. This amazing UFO documentary film was produced in 1977. It was way ahead of its time. Sadly, the master copies of this film and the two which followed it have been lost to the ravages of time. Only one VHS copy of it survived; so Channel 9 gave us permission to convert it to digital video in an effort to preserve it as an archive for the use of posterity. This film inspired Stan Deyo to write “The Cosmic Conspiracy” book which is the sequel to the shows. The man-made, flying saucer programs are exposed in the book and the film.

Its interesting to view (although i do not believe in Betty Hill at all – have a look and see what you think).

What to do, if you see a UFO?

If you believe you have seen a ufo, try and do a sketch of what you saw, at the first opportunity. Also write down/even put it on video/ect all the details you can remember about this sighting.

Probably the most important thing here (apart from a sketch/video/photo) is the date, time of the event, and the exact location…. so you do not then forget at a later date. If you have a camera, it might be an idea to take photos of after the event, and a daylight photo as well (if it happened at night).

Try and eliminate any IFO’s (identified Flying Objects) from the equation, before you carry on; Then send this information to a resource which can handle this well… I would suggest MUFON as the first best source, but there are others (maybe your local UFO group) … many on the website,  now have online forms you can fill in, to simplify the process.

Some people also call the police, airports, ect (but it is only recommended if you are sure it is not an IFO). They usually have limited time, and you probably will not get much out of this anyway.

If in the UK, you can log the sighting on the MOD site database, but that will probably be all that will happen. Still probably worth it, to see if anyone else saw the same thing, and for statistics.

Where to report:

MUFON,    NUFORC,    for instance.

Some other places that welcome reports are: ufo casebook , HBCC .

This is only a rough guide, but i hope this gives you an outline of useful tips if you see anything that you question. Remenber though, alot of the time many of these sightings are indeed IFO’s and nothing more….
