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].

(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).

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?

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.

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.

Large increase in Canadian UFO sightings

Posted by dandare on February 24, 2009

ufo-online-soap1Following on from Canada releasing UFO files on the internet (please see article ” Canada also release UFO files to the public ” ),the Canadian press, report that UFO sightings are at a record level.

For instance, at the Canadian Press “ Record number of Canadians report UFO sightings in 2008 ” (posted 20th February 2009).

Canadians reported a record number of UFO sightings last year, according to Winnipeg-based Ufology Research.
The volunteer group of a half-dozen researchers noted 1,004 reported sightings in 2008 – up more than 25 per cent from the previous year and the highest amount in the 20 years Ufology has been keeping track
” (extract from article).

At CBCNEWS.ca “ UFO sightings soar in Canada ” (posted 20th February 2009), a similar article is produced….

Winnipeg Free Press has ” Record year in Canada for UFOs ” (posted 20th February 2009)

Ufology Research began collecting UFO reports in Canada in 1989.  Reports have  been filed by witnesses with government and military agencies, police, civilian UFO groups and online UFO websites ” (extract from article). The article also links to ” The Canadian survey “, which includes the press release that many media outlets covered.

Also ” the 2008surveyessay ” (a PDF file), which mentions that over half of all sightings were simply lights in the sky; it also has alot of interesting data too; for instance, the first UFO sightings of 1989 came to 141. It adds that UFO sightings have generally, been on the increase in Canada from 1998.

Therefore it seems that about 10% of the sightings in 2008 were unexplained; after analysis the percentage became less than 1% …. many of the sightings turned out to be airplanes, stars and planets.

I do believe that there is a genuine amount of people out there, who really want to know what they see at night, without having to be mocked and joked at….. alot of the time there is a simple explanation, after research, however there is always going to those sightings that are truly Unidentified.

UFO Update (30)

Posted by dandare on February 22, 2008

ufos

There is quite a few updates to get through this week, so here goes…(some of the updates incorporate sightings that i have picked up whilst surfing the net/or missed, so not all are from february/recent reports, but i feel should also be mentioned).

Photobucket

Whilst checking  the website ufobc.ca, i noticed 2 recent reports worth mentioning here.

Green sphere over Vancouver’s westend”  (posted 7th feb,2008); the sighting took place on feb 6th, 2008 at 8.30pm. It mentions

“I happened to be looking out our balcony window, when there was a large round (from my perspective; had the sense it was spherical) green light. The object was enormous and low; probably level with the tenth floor of our building. It’s difficult to gauge it’s size but it appeared to be over False Creek and from my vantage point it looked to be a few hundred feet in diameter. The centre of the object was brilliantly green and the light defused further from the centre. The bizarre thing was that it didn’t diffuse entirely as it radiated, but had a very defined edge. The object appeared, remained for about two seconds, then vanished” (extract from article). It then goes on to a series of questions and answers to the sighting.

The second report was written back in  jan, 2008, “The granisle fog and lights“; it mentions  

“On November… I believe 29th of 2007, I was driving home from town. I had my daughter and her boyfriend with me. It was a perfectly clear night between 6:30 pm and 7 pm. Suddenly there was a fog that came up around us in which we all started talking about because it was so odd. Then, a very bright bluish light lit up around us which really startled us. At that very moment a bright white light shot from the sky at low altitude and could have hit the ground in front of us, but not so that we could see. We were very startled, and nervously chatted along the drive. We drove a ways and there were very bright lights that appeared in front of us. It looked as though I might run right into them and I began to come to a stop. It looked as though they zipped sideways and disappeared” (extract from article). This is just a taster for even more wierd things… the report goes on to mention her diary which starts from the 9th december 2007….and the diary finishes, in this article on january 26th 2008. It is indeed strange.

At abc.net “The paranormal at Penrith draws response from believers” (posted feb 14th,2008). r224006_885419.jpg

It starts…  

“Here’s something not many would know – that Sydney’s south-west, northern beaches and the Penrith-Blue Mountains region are regarded as ‘hot-spots’ for UFO sightings.

Those who believe are already convinced, and their numbers might be boosted as a result of an exhibition featuring UFO inspired art at the Penrith Regional Art Gallery The Visitors – The Australian response to UFO’s and Aliens” (extract from article).

The dailyecho.co.uk reports “A close encounter of the M27 kind” (posted 15th feb,2008):

“Her partner, and two children aged eight and 12, all saw the object on Saturday at 6.20pm and described it as triangular from one direction and oval from another with no distinct outline. The 30-year-old said: “It could have been the size of a jumbo jet but it was not moving fast, more hovering. As we went past Rownhams we could see it to our left. I did not feel scared”” (extract from article).

Opednews states  “UFOs over Silicon Valley” (posted 14th feb,2008)

“I was out on my patio pondering the mysteries of the universe at around 10 PM on the evening of February 13 and caught a glimpse of a most magnificent sight.

First, I saw a red light, which I originally had believed to be was a star, begin moving! It did various loopy maneuvers and then disappeared” (extract from article).

At Analuisacid.com, a googled translation of the article (can be seen) entitled “Young Bandena photographed a ufo“-Argentina-(feb 13th,2008).

“A curious phenomenon was photographed by a young woman from the city of La Banda (Argentina). She took the photo of the rainbow and review images discovered a strange object in the sky. Informe Noticiero 7. News Report 7″ (extract from translated text from google).

What was it that showed up on military radar screens the night of Feb. 24, 1942, prompting authorities to order a blackout and unleash an hourlong anti-aircraft barrage?Could it have been enemy aircraft like those that attacked Pearl Harbor less than three months earlier? Was it just a weather balloon? Might it have been a UFO?” (extract from article).

In Fox12 news “Meteor is no UFO” (posted 20th feb,2008). “A shocking event just after 6:30 Tuesday morning grabbed the attention of people across the Northwest.

Officials now say it was a meteor entering the earth’s atmosphere, but with witnesses stretching from Canada through Washington, Idaho and Montana, you might have gotten the idea that this falling rock from space was something much, much different” (extract from article).

UFO incident (canada’s equivalent to Roswell) at shag harbour reaches 40th year

On Oct 4th 2007, the ufo incident at Shag harbour, Canada will celebrate its 40th year.

The Event:

October 4th 1967. Time : around 11.20pm (ADT=atlantic daylight time).

Eleven witnesses reported seeing a low altitude, unidentified object, move across the sky and down into the harbour. Other witnesses reported hearing a “whistling sound” similar to a bomb, preceeded by a whoosh and lastly a loud bang; others saw a bright flash of light also.

The initial reaction, was that it was a aeroplane, that had crashed into the waters of shag harbour! Because of this possible scenario, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) were informed about the events. 

The size of the ufo: 60 foot long, angled downwards at 45 % and initially displayed 4 or 5 flashing and glowing lights: it was around 250-300 metres out to sea, and the weather conditions were good.

By the time the RCMP were on the scene (with other witnesses present by now), there was only a pale yellow or white light present illuminating from the object.

Before any rescue attempt could be made, the object sank into the water; local fishing boats later arrived at the scene to look for any survivors, and observed yellow foam but no survivors (it was 80 foot wide, and half a mile long). The coast Guard turned up an hour later, but no survivors were found either.

On the 5th October, it was confirmed that no aeroplanes were reported missing…. by the next day the Rescue Coordination Centre (RCC), was sending divers down to see if anything was down there (lasted 3 days). A local fisherman, reports that he saw them retrieve metal debris, but the final report, mentions that no debris from the crashed object had been found. 

Both the RCMP and RCC  report the crash as a UFO.

The plot thickens as it later emerges that a secret mission was undertaken by both the US and Canada, with ships, 30 miles NE of Shag Harbour near Shelbourne (the location of a submarine detection base) . There were several military witnesses to this….. one such witness mentions that the ufo had been monitored on radar from Siberia, and when it had crashed in Shag Harbour, it went to Shelbourne from were it sank, underwater. The US and Canadian ships were there for a week, and were there solely to try and recover the object.

A barge was sent for, to try and place the object on to it, with a cover made for why it was in the area, so as not to arise suspicion. Many photos were taken of the object, and debris was retrieved. Another source claims that the debris seemed alien and not of this world, yet another one maintains that there was anothe ufo/object trying to help the first.

However, on 11th October the operation was cancelled, and that night witnesses saw something depart the area of Shag harbour, close to the initial crash sight. 

No documentation has ever been found, of the secretive mission that took place with the involvement of both the US and Canadian ships. 

The Condon Committee , concluded that it was an unsolved mystery.

There was alot of newspaper interest in the incident.

(sources for above information: wikipedia.org and TheBlack Vault.com).

In novanewsnow.com, it mentions that “Celebrations planned for 40th anniversary of ufo sighting“.

It mentions that “The event continues to fascinate many today. To celebrate the anniversary, a newly formed society has organized the Lighthouse & UFO’s 40th Anniversary of the Shag Harbour Incident”.
