UFO Update ( 44 )

Posted by dandare on August 27, 2008

Welcome to UFO update ……

Whats happening around the UFO world, in August 2008 (mainly articles that have caught my eye)……

Well we start with Kob.com ” Socorro makes claim as UFO destination ” (posted on 8th august, 2008 – which also includes a video ) .

Some in city hall want to put up a plaque or a marker at the site. The town’s tourism chief says people come through town asking about the Socorro Incident and where it happened” (extract from article).

The KXVO.com has a similar themed article “ X-file Odysseys” (posted august 2008; not sure of date); i love this extract though “But traveling to see a saucer crash site or an alien-themed attraction is also an excuse to visit some of the strangest places on the planet. And, in some cases, speak with some of the strangest people” (extract from article). 

The oakland tribune had an interesting article on 1st August entitled ” Give ’em hill:seeing (blips) is believing “.

Well, some were British. Others were from Belgium. Peru, Turkey, Canada and Mexico. There were scientists, researchers and former high-ranking military people from all over the world — this world, as far as we know — who have themselves witnessed unexplained phenomena, or have evidence of proof of weird stuff that really happened someplace and have been interviewed by Larry King to boot….[.]…..       And now there’s some actual corroborating evidence. About UFOs. We’re still waiting on the Cheney thing. Remember the Stephenville, Texas, sightings back on Jan. 8 that made national headlines and Larry King? More than 50 witnesses reported a huge, silent, low-flying craft with bright lights hovering, then streaking through the sky. You know, the usual. Ho hum.

But this time there’s proof — actual blips on Federal Aviation Administration radar! ” (extracts from article). This is significant, as usually this type of information was not forthcoming, until now.

At the York Daily Record ” Did this York Countyman really see a UFO ? ” (posted 4th August 2008 )

It was between 10:30 and 11 p.m. when he saw it in the southern sky as he was driving. He looks at the sky a lot, having an interest in the heavens, and he could tell immediately that what he saw was something he hadn’t seen before.

It was a group of bright orbs, much brighter than the brightest star in the sky, Sirius, the Dog Star. They weren’t planets; they weren’t in a part of the sky that any planet would appear in. He didn’t know what they were.

They hovered, in a kind of V-shape, and turned around. They weren’t moving ” (extract from article). It was also seen by his wife and son; He soon decided to try and find out if it could be explained by an IFO, by checking sateillite positions,ect. He came up with a blank. His final solution was to tell MUFON; he does say that what he saw was a UFO (unidentified) but thats it.

Gather.com reports on ” Eyewitness News Report: Glowing UFO crash Near California ” (posted 2nd August)

On May 14th the Eyewitness News Channel 8 reported a large object with a turquoise hue plummeting out of the sky earlier this summer and plowed into the Earth south of Las Vegas. Eyewitnesses say this was no meteorite, especially since they witnessed a group of black helicopters flying in formation to quickly haul it away” (extract from article).

NJ.com has ” UFO sighting in Hoboken ? ” (posted 11th august 2008 ); very short article, with two short video links here .

At HBCC UFO research, there is ” Canadian UFO sighting reports – 289 reported sightings as of August 16th, 2008 ”  (posted 16th august 2008 )

HBCC UFO Research and UFOINFO together have received 289 written (and audio) UFO sighting reports from January 1, 2008 up until August 16, 2008 and I am sure the total number will climb as we still have a little over four months left in 2008” (extract from article).

AFP mentions ” Chile touts intergalacticties with UFO trail ” (posted 20th august 2008 )

The Andean municipality, 240 kilometers (150 miles) south of Santiago, has opened the country’s first UFO trail, a 30-kilometer (19-mile) long stretch that takes in a supposed landing site for flying saucers and optimal lookouts for extraterrestrial craft” (extract from article).

macon.com ” Alabama town celebrates UFO past with family Festival

The owners say a buyer from Adelaide is interested in the roadhouse and camp ground at Wycliffe Well, despite fears of alien invasion” (extract from article).

Los Angeles Times ” In the Nevada desert, there’s something out there — the black mailbox ”  

TIKABOO VALLEY, NEV. — The only landmark for about 40 miles on a barren stretch of highway is a mailbox battered by time and desert gusts. It’s known as the Black Mailbox, though it’s actually a faded white…[.]…..Some think the mailbox is linked to nearby Area 51, a military installation and purported hotbed of extraterrestrial activity. At the very least, they consider the box a prime magnet for flying saucers ” (extracts from article).

Round Town News (RTN Costa Blanca Free newspaper) ” Is there anyone out there ? ” ( last updated 21st august )

A couple from Daya Vieja are convinced that there is something out there, after they and several other witnesses saw an unexplained bright light fly through the night’s sky two weeks ago. The UFO sighting was spotted on Monday 4th August by a man on his solarium in the small village of Daya Vieja.

If the truth is indeed out there, Sam Maranto has the evidence. As director of the Illinois branch of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), Maranto’s job, like a real-life Agent Mulder, is to investigate the validity of the UFO sightings that pour into Orland Park–based MUFON and the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) in Davenport, Washington, every day ” (extract from article).

UK UFO sightings – August 2008 (updated regularly)

Posted by dandare on August 19, 2008

i will try and keep this up to date, with all information from the UK.

Please check back from time to time, as this will be updated regularly…If you see something that i have missed, please contact me (thanks).….

There has been an explosion of UK UFO activity, after the MOD released its UFO archive, and this might account for the media clamouring for our attention (how much of it is fact, is frankly anyone’s guess), and also the public looking at the sky more than normal.

Many of the sightings are sensationalised, with usually alot 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:  https://dandare.wordpress.com/2007/05/19/ufo-balloons-what-are-they/ for more details, from a previous article).   

However, as i have said before, i am not sure what value they are to any UFO research. 

Many of the sightings are sensationalised, with usually alot 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.

“They definitely weren’t helicopters or planes and there was no smoke or sound. We were thinking: ‘This is it.’”

Beverley Clarke, who watched with husband Michael and son Joe from their garden, said: “We saw one through the trees. Just as it was disappearing, another one came from the same direction” (extract from article). I do not usually comment on these articles, but i would like to suggest that they have the characteristics of  chinese lanterns.

Aversion.com ” Muse lets its UFO go to waste


Halifax Courier (follow up article)..link given in article ” Mytholmroyd UFOs: Aliens….or just space rubbish ? ”  

Two people suggested the bright spots in the skies could be attributed to an annual natural phenomenon.
Reader James Fryer said: “I’m certainly no expert, but I believe the lights were probably part of the annual meteor shower known as the Perseids.”
The showers, which are active from July 17 to August 24 this year and reached their peak on August 12, are caused by small bits of debris that enter the Earth’s atmosphere when our orbit passes through the tail of the Swift-Tuttle comet. These particles travel at very high speeds, reaching up to 32 miles per second and burn up in the atmosphere
” (extract from articles). I would tend to agree with this theory, i’m afraid.

Lough leader ” UFOs described as orange lights spotted over Lough


The Sun ” Every little green man helps ” 

The white and green lights were snapped hovering over the supermarket — which has the slogan “Every Little Helps”. Sid O’Driscoll took our exclusive pictures at the 24-hour store in Croydon, South London, at 2am…[.]….UFO expert Nick Pope, who worked for the Ministry of Defence, examined the pictures.He said: “Green lights are unusual — it rules out the so-called Chinese lanterns that accounted for some recent UFO sightings in the UK.”The images and description of the movement don’t fit a list of things frequently reported as UFOs — aircraft lights, meteors, satellites. “This is a genuine mystery.” ” (extracts from article).

I’m sorry… yes it is different from the usual sightings we have been seeing lately; however, it could be lens flare that is causing this image, among other things. There are far too many so called UFO experts jumping the gun, and saying that “this is a genuine mystery”, and so on, without analysing the evidence properly (is there any serious discussion in this article on the photo?)…. it suggests a hidden agenda; unfortunately, due to the size of the photo being presented in the article, it really is almost impossible for anyone else to analyse it.

WHEN lights floated across the evening sky in Carlton last weekend, no one was able to identify the mysterious flying objects.Many believed the lights were alien spacecraft, prompting a flurry of comments on the Evening Post website.But a more earthly explanation for the strange, ethereal objects has now emerged.Newlyweds Izabella and Adrian Jagiello-Marks believe the lights were actually flying Chinese lanterns, released into the sky as part of their wedding celebrations ” (extracts from article).

The first question i would ask is “How was the language decoded, exactely?” along with other questions…. remember, always ask, collect data, for and against, and then you might come to an answer that is “well you know, i’m not sure”.

Keep this in mind, keep it open and try and collect more information, at a later date if there is any.

Not UFO related: but something dear to my heart

Posted by dandare on August 7, 2008

This blog post is to pay tribute to my dog taz, who i (and my girlfriend) had to have put down by the vet on wednesday (6th august 2008)….      I know this is not UFO related, so am sorry. But she was something that was close to my heart, and will be badly missed; she had a tumour in her mouth, that was ulcerating, and not improving…..

It was the best and only choice left…. the vets where very kind and thoughtful. She was 14 years old …

 i hope she has found her own peace + paradise….

Now Clark McClelland backs up Mitchell! who is McClelland + why is he doing this?

Posted by dandare on August 4, 2008

I know the news about Clark McClelland, backing up Mitchell’s claim that extraterrestials exist, came out at the end of July 2008, but i have just been trying to assess his reasons for doing so, and find out some more information about him.

For those not up to date, it started with Edgar Mitchell admitting on Kerrang radio (from the UK), that he believed in aliens….please see here for my article on this, and to listen to the audio.

He had however, mentioned this before, in 1998 to The Sunday Times (please see link here ) and also in November 2007 (see link here ) so in a sense this is not new…. Those interested in his website, please go to http://www.edmitchellapollo14.com/ . However, for some reason (why i’m not sure, as this radio station is not well known) it became common world wide phenomena very quickly… 

Then at the end of July 2008, Clark McClelland backed up Mitchell, saying that “ I, Clark C. McClelland, former ScO, Space Shuttle Fleet, personally observed an 8 to 9 foot tall ET on his 27 inch video monitors while on duty in the Kennedy Space Center, Launch Control Center (LCC). The ET was standing upright in the Space Shuttle Payload Bay having a discussion with TWO tethered US NASA Astronauts! I also observed on my monitors, the spacecraft of the ET as it was in a stabilized, safe orbit to the rear of the Space Shuttle main engine pods ” (extract from article).

For the rest of this article please see Australia.to “NASA expert claims to have seen ET from UFO standing in shuttle payload bayduring space flight” . It then goes on to state where he has been, who can verify for him, and so on…. although it does say, that he is ready to tell his story, but for compensation.

 It seems that Mitchell believes he is legitimate, as he gives us many examples of where he has been, what he has done, and so on (all in this article). This is important, as there is not much information on him, that i can find out. Right at the end of the article above, there seems to be a motive here:

Most of you are not aware that my Space Program Retirement was DENIED TO ME!! I was told by several KSC high management people to not take a legal action, and that they were working to have my job returned to me with back pay! Yeah, SURE! Thanks to the Legal Gods that I found an attorney who would give me a free consultation. He told me that I had a fixed time limit to file an action against those responsible” (extract from article). Basically, the main thrust of this was that he is broke, and owed money, and by all accounts small changed (i must note so would i be too). Maybe this is nothing (if true of course), but must be mentioned however.

So i’m thinking, wow this is big stuff, but i’m honestly worried; why? can i just take this statement on faith… i’m afraid not. so although interesting, i cannot say “well hell i believe him”.

Do not get me wrong, i believe that UFOs (the small % that is not explained away) are either extraterrestials, or they are a government Black Ops project. However, there is no way of knowing if he is telling the truth.

The timing of this also interests me…. NASA’s fiftieth birthday has just passed, and then these 2 (who have already shown their feelings before, but to little effect), have been getting attention, although to be fair only limited attention. Of course, many theories can be concluded from this…NASA makes you sign a secrecy clause, so you could be in trouble with both them and the government.

Unless this is some kind of program led by the government/ NASA in a round about way, towards educating us to the ETs of this world. Again though, i just feel this an odd way of doing it, if that was the case. Although maybe, they both (or one or the other) were told to make these statements to protect a secret black ops project being tested. mmm, not sure about that either. There are other scenarios too.

I’m not really scratching the surface here, but you see the problems we have here; there is the fact that Mitchell has mentioned this before, but it got nowhere, but now it hits the headlines, why? 

We have McClelland, who makes this statement basically in favour of Mitchell, and wants compensation, for the full story, why? and why not wait until he has more evidence. The only worrying thing is, that the more i read this, the more i think of Bob Lazar, and believe me that is not a good thing.
In conclusion, i am not sure what to make of this, although i feel Mitchell has more to offer, and is definately more creditable in what he is trying to say than McClelland.

I am fascinated by what has happened, but alarm bells are ringing; what i would like however, is for a serious debate to take place, not just in the mainstream media, but with NASA and governments, publically about all this… but this is never going to happen. 

Sorry if this has come out in a bit of a mess, as i have literally just written out what i feel on the matter…. i will follow this closely and see where it leads us, and update again if i can find out some more…. 

I would love to hear your views on this… please leave them in the comments section below.
