I’m afraid many also fail to follow-up on their initial leads, and many reports just remain forgotten.

There are also many other IFOs ( Identified Flying Objects they could be as well).

UFO sighting (Milton Ulladulla Times)masthead-main

The incident happened on Monday night of last week and was the second time in a week Mr Preston had seen UFOs.

The previous Wednesday he had been using his telescope to watch Venus about 10pm, when he saw two objects moving across from the north-north-west sky.

“I got a pretty good view of them,” he said.

“They kept going and going and going.”

Then on the Monday night he saw three objects “clear as a bell” flying low over Lake Conjola from the east-north-east between 9pm and 10pm, he said.

“They virtually came over my house,” he said.

Though he claims to be a UFO skeptic, former U.S. Senator for Alaska Mike Gravel is one of six former members of Congress scheduled to join a staged UFO investigation in a Washington D.C. at the end of the month. The event purports to be an inquiry into a vast government cover-up. The promoters have rented the ballroom at The National Press Club’s Washington D.C. headquarters for five days beginning April 29.

UFO video shows fireballs in Cork, Ireland (openminds.tv) the same sighting will have ** after the heading.

A witness recorded approximately three minutes of video showing multiple fireball UFOs in the sky above Cork, Ireland.

The witness, YouTube user Naktis Ireland, uploaded the video to the video sharing service on March 16, 2013. But the title of the video indicates the incident occurred in December 2012. The video shows multiple bright balls of light appearing out of nowhere, and drifting slowly through the sky. The low-quality video is extremely jittery, but the witness explains:

I am sorry for the quality, it was filmed with a mobile phone. Ironically I had a Cannon EOS 500D with 300mm lens at home that could of filmed in 3000×3000 but I was afraid that they would disappear by the time I got my camera as this is a very rare opportunity so instead, used a phone to record as much as possible.

Mr Philip decided to speak out in the hope others may be able to corroborate the sightings.

The first sighting, he said, was of a bright white light travelling much slower and lower than a normal plane.

“It was so smooth and silent, just gliding through the air,” he said.

In the second sighting, Mr Philip said a similar light was travelling northwest before making a sudden 40-degree turn and then disappearing.

“I can’t explain it, it was awesome and I hope I see some more,” he said.

Aliens in Ireland? Mysterious UFOs caught on camera   **   (Daily express)

American horror writer Whitley Strieber posted a note on the video, on his Web site, and said he had the video analysed by three experts.

Hundreds of UFO pics captured over Perth by Darlington man(Perthnow.com.au)

794765-rob-hartlandRob Hartland has taken more than 20,000 photos of the day-time sky in the past six months and analysed them on his computer.

It began when he was taking photos of clouds to test out a new camera when he noticed a “smudge” that, when enlarged and enhanced, “had some structure to it, suggesting it could be some sort of craft in the sky”.

He says since then he has identified a dozen different UFOs including round, square and saucer-shaped craft, posting the photos to his website wispyclouds.net for extra-terrestrial buffs and sceptics to ponder.

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.

The Geminid meteor shower is expected to yield in excess of 50 meteors (shooting stars) per hour at peak for those with clear skies, the meteors it produces are usually bright with long persistent trains.

UFOlogy: Dead Again?  ^^ ( Dr David Clarke )

Is UFOlogy dead or alive?  I predict ASSAP may be posing the same question in 2022 but as far I’m concerned the subject remains interesting as an example of living myth.

The organisation is concerned that the debate has been polarised between those who firmly believe UFOs are extra terrestrials and fear that there is a cover-up over their presence and those who have declared the “death of the UFO  [….] But to me it seems a shame that the UFO hunters may be giving up at a time when we are closer than ever to finding life in other worlds.
