SIGHTINGS ARE STEADY and expected to increase on Halloween as they
year. I suggest while your out trick or treating you watch the skies
strange flying objects. This week we report on sightings in New
Jersey, Texas, Colorado, Arizona and Chili. There is exciting new

We need leaders who have an open mind and will explore the UFO phenomena.
SOLAR FLARES -- NASA has just announced a powerful M5-Class solar
flare and a
possible CME occurred on October 29th. This could generate a powerful
geomagnetic storm capable of knocking out power grids, and produce
of an aurora show on October 31. It takes approximately 48 hours
activity to hit our Earth's atmosphere and may cause severe weather
NEW YORK A GIGANTIC ILLUMINATED SAUCER
BELLEROSE -- We witnessed a thickened disk shaped object that was
color and extremely illuminated with yellow lights on October 16,
passed into our view at 11:55 PM going very slow and flying extremely
to the ground probably less than 5000 feet. It was going five times
than a typical commercial plane. We saw it for two minutes, and
object disappeared behind a mass of trees. We ran up the block to
where we could better view this object, but it was gone, no where
to be seen.
What sticks out in my mind the most is how massive this flying object
It looked two times larger than a blimp. I have never seen anything

My friend said, "What the heck is that?" and pointed to the area
of the bright star. The glare of the full moon illuminated the edges

surface area and camouflaged by the darkness of the sky with little
spots to resemble the background of the surrounding stars. The area
was blurred and fuzzy. If the moon was not shining brightly in a

MEXICO, TEXAS, OKLAHOMA, KANSAS & NEBRASKA FIREBALL
Jim Hickman and Joel Carpenter write, "The Kansas fireball of October
hit the news again. You may remember that NORAD was denying that
space junk, despite ever-increasing evidence that it was the Russian
booster of a Glonass (GPS) satellite launch. A surprised La Crosse,
central Kansas farmer has found the battered remains of the rocket
farm. I spoke to the Wichita Eagle reporter who has been covering
story, she says that she is going to try and get a comment from
NORAD on the
find. Readers may find the following report interesting.

Editor's Note: NORAD either missed the Russian Proton booster on
its radar or
may have wanted to examine the booster, but it chose not to reveal
presence. There also may have been multiple objects in the sky that

ESTES PARK -- Deborah Lindemann C.H.T. interviewed Marie regarding
sightings 55 miles northwest of Denver. Marie and her family witnessed
UFO on September 6, 2000, four miles south of Highway 34 in the
Mountain National Park area. They saw a "big white light" come up
behind a hill directly west of their house at 9:15 PM. "It was about
size of a full moon." Marie said, "This thing came fast right towards

MARY'S LAKE -- Marie's son and daughter-in-law shared a second sighting
Sunday, October 1, 2000. Ironically, the two would never have remembered
second sighting, except that Marie had unintentionally triggered
memories by discussing their earlier sighting. This suddenly jogged
memories and they were amazed that they had forgotten. They began

ARIZONA BOOMERANG SIGHTING
PARKER CANYON -- On Friday night, October 27, 2000, a friend of
mine and his
family saw a very large boomerang craft being accompanied or followed
fighter jet. The sighting took place in the Parker Canyon area about
from Sonoita, not too far away from Fort Huachuca Base. The boomerang
large as a football field with greenish/blue and white lights. It
like it had a cockpit at front. It made no sound at all. Both craft
around the area twice and the sighting lasted about 10 minutes.

HALLOWEEN AND ABDUCTIONS-
Last weeks article discussed the possibility that ancient writings
various fairy lore and abductions may be based in truth. The Druids
great, far-reaching priesthood who ruled over a people known as
the Celts who
probably originated Halloween.
Joni Ferris wrote, Researcher Dr. Jacques Vallee who has searched
answers states, "The 'medical examination' to which abductees are
said to be
subjected, often accompanied by sadistic sexual manipulation," ---Joni
"Vallee's characterization of the work being "sadistic" can only
result of preconceived notions. In my contact experience, I was
was in a hospital suffering from pneumonia for six weeks and NOTHING
absolutely NO antibiotics were working on me. The specialists were
Penicillin after Penicillin. Then one day I was "taken up" through
ceiling and "blacked out." When I came back I was in bed and my
and the pneumonia was gone. But then I have heard case after case
being hurt, from abduction. So there is both good and bad! We don't
what the (ET?) researchers are trying to accomplish. In other words,
work may appear to be "sadistic" in the way an emergency medical
performing a lifesaving operation, if not properly recognized and
could be considered sadistic.
Similarly, Vallee's statement, that many ET events are 'absurd'
me as an egocentric characterization. "It makes no sense in a sophisticated
or technical framework: Any intelligent being equipped with the
marvels that UFOs possess would be in a position to achieve any
alleged scientific objectives in a shorter time and with fewer risks."
"Confrontations" This statement is so tunnel vision and egotistical
as to be
utterly unscientific. Only by knowing the intentions of the actors,
details of their system, can any such determination be made. Joni

Editor' Note: There is evidence that the aliens conduct activities

their operations based on what is beneficial to them rather than
benefit. If they have healed you, they may feel you are important
Dr. Valle was trying to point out that the UFO stories have a remarkable
similarity to the fairy-faith of Celtic countries. Halloween apparently
back to the time of the Druids some 2000 years ago, when there was
belief among all peoples concerning entities whose physical and
descriptions are very similar to abduction accounts by aliens today.
Roman conquerors of England at that time even carried shields with
that could be interpreted as a UFO with lightning striking out from
fuselage. Since the Druids did not leave their own written records,
only the Roman and later the Christian writings that tell what the
NEW EVIDENCE FROM ROSWELL MESSAGE
Several groups of researchers are working to read the Roswell message.
Researcher Tom Carey provides the following data, "The Roswell research
of Tom Carey and Don Schmitt continues to break new ground in their
to "decipher" the so-called "Ramey Memo." In one of the July 8,
photographs taken by Fort Worth Star Telegram reporter/photographer,
Johnson, Gen. Roger M. Ramey can be seen holding a piece of paper
writing on it as he kneels by some obvious weather balloon debris
floor of his office. Several teams of researchers, including Carey
Schmitt, have attempted, by means of computer software programs,
what is contained in what has become known as the "Ramey Memo."
In July, with the support of the International UFO Museum and Research
in ROSWELL, Carey and Schmitt made arrangements to have the original
scanned by sophisticated techniques at the University of Texas [Arlington]
Archives where it is kept. This was a one-time-only operation as
by the University of Texas. The result is, in essence, a new negative
original picture and not merely a photo of it. This includes a number
non-UFO-related entities as well as several well-respected Roswell-focused
investigators who have attempted to "read" the memo before. One
respected Roswell researcher David Rudiak has forwarded his results
and they are gratifying to say the least. David advises me that
the new scan
helped to "clear up" some of the problem areas that he had previously
having trouble with.
Neil Morris from the University of Manchester in England with the
Photo Research Team plus Don Burleson have also provided their
interpretations of the message. Neil states, "In this comparison

this is info being given from a third party fully aware of what
is going on

there, but it does seem to have the feel of a report from "a forward

CONTRAILS OR CHEMTRAILS?
Jerry Rolwes the Washington State Director MUFON is helping us look
contrail mystery. He writes, "A friend here in Spokane, Herb Wagner
retired USAF SMSgt who spent over twenty years in weather. I asked
him if he
had knowledge of contrails and he said he did. He said that conning
trails occur normally between 20 to 40 thousand feet. He said that
on weather aloft winds and humidity conning can actually start as
15,000 feet. I asked him about time trails remain before they break
told him of the day last week here in Spokane when trails would
horizon to horizon. He said that was NOT unique, but representative
calm winds aloft. He said winds will deteriorate contrails rapidly.
told him of the three trails which ultimately spread from horizon
in their "width." Again, this is representative of calm winds aloft.
I was particularly interested in remained for the better part of
forty minutes which I have seen occur in Washington and Iowa State
times in my life going as far back in my memories as 1957. Thanks
VERMONT POSSIBLE CHEMTRAILS?
Dale Hinchey writes, I have been observing contrails since I was
old. The contrails were exceedingly white and thick October 22,
it was clear that they were sometimes pulsing from one side on one
as if someone had been switching a feed line on and off to unclog
were configured like spray craft , at a lower altitude than others,
higher spotters to see further ahead of the sprayers, past the curvature
the horizon. I saw high craft descend to observe a spray craft.
I saw the
contrails side by side, and it was if the generators were being
the descended aircraft, with subsequent pulses as if one contrail
being turned on and off. The texture of the contrails were exceedingly
different. The "spray " contrails lasted hours while the non "spray"
contrails disappeared after a few minutes. I was raised in New Brunswick
where spray craft operations against the spruce budworm were conducted
year flying off dirt strips , Grumman hellcats, spotters and the
yards. I have a lot of experience observing spray formations and
are organized. In my opinion this was a coverage formation, although
could have been flying a photographic run of terrain, but the formation
not that rigid in its configuration, as it would have to be.
This was a massive flight of aircraft. That is 18 aircraft in a
band of contrails across a 30 or 40 mile band of space. This is
strategic aircraft formation. It is a coverage formation. There
photos taken of the eastern edge of the contrails by Phil M. who
was on a
bike ride and happened to have his digital camera. I was driving
up I-93 and
drove under the whole pattern as in was happening. Even if the aircraft
just simply being ferried from one military base to another, it
was a massive
simultaneous movement. SAC base at Loring , Maine and our Air National
Guard base in Burlington have been closed. I cannot imagine why
be such a massive movement of commercial aircraft. It is indeed
I cannot say what type of aircraft these were for sure, some had
appeared to be double contrails while higher aircraft had what appeared
a single contrail. The contrails were too white (and thick/dense)
of the engines. I am puzzled by the whole thing and if they are
aircraft, then what are they? I work in a school and coincidentally,
more students than usual came to class coughing their lungs out
(Spraying on Sunday), one can see the ups and downs of colds in
in morning assembly each day. Thanks to Dale Hinchey [email protected]
Editor's Note: Respected men from both sides of the contrail or
controversy give their opinions. Nintyfive percent of the seem to
contrails. There are a small number of incidents that remain unsolved.
