World UFO sightings January 2013 [Part 2 of 2]
Posted by dandare on January 17, 2013
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: https://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.
Please be patient whilst i catch up on information/links/articles…. thank you.
“ “My grandma and I were driving past Dennys on our way home [when] I caught a glimpse of four shiny metal discs with a V-shaped disc in front [of the formation].
“My grandmother described it as planes flying in formation,” the witness continued. “She saw 5 V-shaped objects flying in a V pattern. We [caught the sight] for 15 seconds or less. I was shocked and so was my grandmother “ ” [extract from article].
The user, danchek2013, has uploaded a video showing footage of at at least one mysterious object zipping about over the surface of the moon.
One of the ‘craft’ emerges from the shadowy landscape of the moon’s surface and then seemingly accelerates over the craters. It then changes direction at breakneck speed towards the bottom of the screen ” [extract from article].

No Syd, you’re not alone ( De Void)
” A few weeks ago, a stranger named Syd Young called. Nice guy, 69, lives in Idaho, recently retired from a high-end family boat construction business called StanCraft. Late last year, Young’s brother-in-law called his attention to an Internet video he’d never seen or even heard of: Former USAF Capt. Robert Salas was talking about the nuclear-missile shutdown at Malmstrom Air Force Base during a UFO incursion in March 1967. Young’s brother-in-law said something like “Weren’t you stationed there back then? ” ” [extract from article].
What goes on at Area 51 ? (history.com)
” Over the years, the CIA, U.S. Air Force and aerospace company Lockheed Martin have all used Area 51 as a staging ground for test flights of experimental aircraft (a.k.a. “black aircraft”). According to documents declassified in 2007, in the 1950s and 1960s Area 51 was home to a top-secret Cold War-era program known as Oxcart, which aimed to develop a spy plane that would be undetectable in the air and could be used for information gathering missions behind the Iron Curtain ” [extract from article].

Is it a bird? A plane? or an ‘UFO’? A mysterious object spotted on the surface of the moon (Independant editor’s choice blog)
” Zooming in on the moon’s surface, the video shows two small blurry dots flying across the space that has incited humorous, intelligent and equally ridiculous comments. Of course the topic of discussion is what this object might actually be: a sign of extra-terrestrial life, a trick of the eye or an insignificant piece of space debris? ” [extract from article].

Calm Down, NASA didn’t remove UFO Images (Ghost Theory)
” What’s NASA trying to erase? That’s what everyone is asking over at the conspiracy web forums.

VIDEO: Has a UFO been sighted off Land’s End? (This is Cornwall)
” It has left Cornish UFO expert Dave Gillham scratching his head and he is eager to track down the cameraman or anyone else with information.
He said: “Down at Land’s End back in the nineties there was quite a big sighting. It was an orange-shaped object shining above three white objects that went out over Paul.
“A lot of people actually saw that, I know it’s a different colour but this object went in to it as well.
“The thing that stuck out most (about this object) is the object that came from the ground and went in to it ” [extract from article].

Christmas night sighting
UPDATE: Since this article was first published, another resident has come forward to recount their tale of a UFO.
A reader said it was about 9.30pm on Christmas night last year when she saw something in the sky at Innes Park ” [extract from article].
The mysterious object seen over the skies of St Peters, Missouri, first caught the attention of a woman looking for directions on the popular search engine along Dingledine Road.
When she pulled the camera’s angle a little too high on her computer screen she saw what she felt needed immediate attention ” [extract from article]. I usually do not comment on articles, but this is quite obviously lens flare.
UFO over Massachusetts Not Easy For Air Force To Explain Away (Huffington Post)
” It’s taken over two weeks for the Air Force to suggest that a UFO reported over Massachusetts may have only been a huge cargo plane, but even they’re not sure.

” Eagle Ford is a hot spot for oil, but in the past few weeks it has turned into the mother ship for UFO sightings. It seems Cotulla, Texas has become ground zero for UFOs in the past few weeks—if recent YouTube postings can be believed ” [extract from article].
” Three digital images taken Dec. 29 by an unattended wildlife camera on a deer lease near Nixon appear to show a series of anomalies in the sky and near the ground, says Fletcher Gray, deputy investigator with the Strike Team Area Research (STAR) unit of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).
The privately run group released the photos this week.
Game cameras sit dormant and are only activated by a motion sensor, which means some form of wildlife — typically a deer — is in the camera’s vicinity ” [extract from article].

UFO: ‘Alien pyramid’ over Amherst, MA, even Air Force puzzled (Digital Journal)
” Residents are asking how anyone could have mistaken a C5 Galaxy cargo plane, one of the biggest and noisiest planes in the world for a silent, “unusually low” and slow-flying pyramid UFO. While the C5 could have been mistaken for a diamond or triangular-shaped object because of its wings, it is unlikely that observers would have confused the 250 feet long C5 flying low over the sky with a pyramid or diamond-shaped UFO, “the size of two or three cars “ ” [extract from article].
More than just a starry, starry night (The Flinders News)
Since then, he has been filming the lights, which have also been seen by members of his family.
Mariana Flynn, the president of UFO Research NSW, visited Mr Nott two weeks ago to observe firsthand what he was seeing.

” Over the years, I have gotten countless videos of supposed UFOs and secret government alien contact videos. The sad thing is that the majority of these hurt the UFO Truth movement immensely. With the new editing and special effects programs, it is very easy to create something that can almost pass the test…almost. My group has been responsible for debunking over 5000 videos and has been the backbone of the alien abduction awareness movement ” [extract from article].
UFO interest wanes after Mulder and Scully demise (The Advocate)
Keith Roberts, who calls himself the group’s secretary, investigation co-ordinator and tea lady – was unconvinced The X Files caused the 1990s spike.
“In the ’90s, I don’t know … we had some interesting events,” he said.
“They  were heady days; that’s a call every two days.”
There was also a big spike in the 1970s.
Mr Roberts said there was a big lift in UFO reports worldwide in the 1960s and ’70s and Tasmania fitted the trend.
“Locally, there’s just a whisper now “ ” [extract from article].
