The news from last week, has been largely dominated by the UFO conference, given on the 12 th november,2007. (see here for a link to this). An interesting article to this can be found here , with quite a few links too other sites, videos,ect.
Also Frank Warren has an interesting article, at the American Chronicle ”UFOs; keeping Anderson Cooper and CNN honest“. He comments on the poor way that the live event was covered by CNN. Also ”Expolitics: Your lying eyes” also from the American Chronicle, covers the general coverage from the press as a whole. See also here .
I feel two things will possibly happen as an offshoot of this; there will be more ufo sightings clearly hoaxes, and in relation to this ridicule towards the ufo subject. Also the more extreme, of the ufology community, will start making claims that will not help the cause either. I will write about this in a later blog article.
Other things away from the conference did happen….that i nearly missed.
As the UFO Gulf Breeze incident is 20years old (from 11th november,1987- 1st may 1988…mmm i think) an article from theitem.com is entitled “UFO sightings put Gulf Breeze on the extraterrestrial map“. Also the herald tribune mentions the event here . Generally, many believe that it was a hoax from the start.
“Ufo sightings above the sky of Selby“ , will be a talk held by Tony Topping, at the community centre, on the 22nd november.
The villageVoice.com seems to have it in for Symington, the Pheonix lights and UFOs in general….see “runnin’ scared“ for information or lack of for the argument; make sure not to miss the comments at the bottom. For one article about the pheonix lights see here (plus there is information on this site about it).
pasadena star news has information on “close encounters of the rose parade kind” in which “Imagine the interest they could generate this year, especially if they featured presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich, who acknowledged during a recent Democrat candidates debate that he had seen a UFO. Or Jimmy Carter (ditto). Or former Arizona Gov. Fife Symington, who said he was among hundreds who saw a delta-shaped craft with enormous lights silently traverse the sky near Phoenix in 1997″ (extract from article).
At the jambar.com, “Students ponder life beyond Earth” in which “Students who took the class last spring at the YSU Metro College in Boardman have formed their own opinions.
Prior to taking the class, former student Tina Fanfer didn’t think about life beyond earth” (extract from article).
At PalmBeachCoast.com, “unexplained doesn’t mean unbelievable“ , and the article is written by someone who is neutral on the subject, although i especiall liked the phrase “science is powerful, but it cannot explain everything”.

WFMZ.com has ”Local Man’s purchase is Out of this world“ in which “There are reports of a UFO sighting in Lehigh County. But don’t worry, this flying saucer’s home-base is Hollywood”…. hehe. The hmmm, sighting details can be seen here and another article can be seen at mcall.com.
A sunderland sighting (see here..posted on the 16th november), was in fact venus, as reported in a seperate article on the same day, here .
On the 15th november,2007 there was “UFo activity above Cyprus“, mentioning that “only last week there was a report of a UFO spotted over Limassol town and since an earlier article on UFOs in Cyprus, The Gazette has received many accounts from readers of their unexplained encounters” (extract from article). It also mentions previous UFO sightings.
Yesterday it was reported that “Witness to Roswell flying saucer incident tells his story“.
