World UFO Sightings December 2012 [part 1 of 2]

Posted by dandare on December 2, 2012

ufosa-hot-topic

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.redalienketchup

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.

Russia to build £3m UFO centre… tourism gone mad?

Posted by dandare on February 20, 2008

Photobucket

According to Ananova.com “Russia builds £3m UFO centre” (posted recently..no actual date though). It mentions

“Authorities in a remote Russian region at the centre of dozens of reports of UFO sightings have started work on a £3 million centre to attract alien spotters” (extract from article). It later mentions

“Now officials want to cash in on the fame with a centre that will include a museum and theme park.

It will include an observatory for people to scan the skies for UFOs, a special trail along sites of supposed UFO sightings, as well as displays and even equipment like infra-red cameras that can be rented by UFO spotters to catch aliens on film” (extract from article).

I just find this a bit sad, as it seems people are jumping on the band wagon, for tourism exploitation, and so on. I have no objection to a bit of marketing, but this seems way over the top and cheesy.

However, i feel the Roswell festival is a good idea, but this is slightly different, as it not all year round.

I dread to think what else might be added to this ‘ufo centre’.

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……

UFO Update

I’m afraid i have to start on a negative note…. the media and the way it portrays the ufology topic, can sometimes be described as “laughable” at best. Some (a sizable some) do not research the subject, and are all to ready to ridicule it… (although ufology, does not always help itself however).

I give as one example, the New Statesman’s article (posted 30th august,2007) written by Ziauddin Sardur; in the article “Encounters of the fourth kind“, he starts off by saying that in the age of the internet and communication, the alien thoery is irrelevant…. and then adds sweeping statements (not backed up with anything) such as

The Guernsey ufo sighting reported above, was not real (according to the New Statesman); what, not even a possible Unidentified Flying Object?).

“The last UFO sighting in Britain (the only one this year) was in April, in Guernsey, and – alas – it was not a real UFO” and

“People seek to explain the inexplicable through the internet – by developing virtual communities……[.] ….where they can actually take on the persona of visiting aliens. With the internet, we have become self-absorbed and inward-looking. UFOs have become irrelevant.”

The most interesting part of this article, is what was said in the comments section….

Moving swiftly on, the sixth annual Mothman Festival will be held over 2 days from  september 15th – 16th in point pleasant. For details of events see here.

Rian.ru reports/claims that ufos are attacking the Ukraine.

It mentions that “UFO sightings are up across the country. But in contrast to the politicians, no ufologist claims to have all the answers”.

However, it is claimed that the reasons for this are “…[.]..there are many disco clubs in the Crimea, which are equipped with laser units. With low cloud cover, the lasers produce mysterious glow overhead.” Researchers believe that these UFO sightings might be spy planes/drones that could threaten their National Security, being sent by other coutries or by the Ukraine itself. However, they encourage people to look to the skies and report what they see. For full details of the article please see here  . There is also a video   too; although it is hardly conclusive.

In Russian news (russia-ic.com  Posted 3rd september,2007) in the article “UFO spotted in Moscow Region sky” it tells of “Crews of two passenger aircraft, TU-134 and Boeing-737, spotted two unknown flying objects – supposedly, big balloons, in the sky of the Moscow Region”. 

“According to the Ministry of Transport, now the officers of the air traffic organization and management department are making inspection upon the fact of spotting of two unknown objects in the flying zone of the Moscow Region”.

In other news, the ParanormalReview.com (posted 3rd september,2007) mentions, “Famous rocket scientist saw Roswell spacecraft“.

 In IndiaDaily.com (posted september 3rd,2007) “UFO crashes in Atlantic near new Jersey or a controlled experiment by the advanced extraterrestrial civilization“?  The New York post  (posted 2nd september,2007) also has the same event in “FIERY UFO BLOWS UP OFF N.J. “. It mentions that

“A mysterious giant “fireball” was spotted exploding over the ocean off the Jersey Shore last night, but officials had no idea last night what it was”.

Ufos were sighted in Eden (posted 5th september,2007), in which ufos were allegedly seen on several nights by more than one witness.Lastly, an interesting article in Seacoastonline.com (posted august 26th,2007) caught my eye; although it only scratches the surface, it is still revealing…it seems more people are willing to accept alien life in a private capacity, than out in the open, where they might still be ridiculed; for the article see here .
