MOTHER-SHIPS MAY BE BACK -- Reports of large cigar or cylinder
are coming in from Georgia, Colorado, California, Texas, and Washington.
NASA reports that our sun is in the middle of powerful coronal mass
that send huge geomagnetic storms into space. The solar flare activity
been picking up for the last several months. Sky watchers as far south
Mexico have seen the Northern Lights (aurora borealis). The most recent
strongly magnetized storm began March 30th when a coronal mass ejection
struck our Earth's magnetosphere. These intense storms may be tied to
sightings of the motherships in our atmosphere. Earth is a relatively
port in a solar storm. The most powerful flare of the current solar

is more powerful than the March 1989 event that led to the collapse
power grid in Quebec. This is the second most powerful CME in 25 years.
increased activity may be the reason for increased mothership sightings.
Reports of large, cigar-shaped, aircraft carrier sized UFOs also known,
'motherships' appear to have started as early as 1896-7 with sightings
throughout the Midwest United States. During World War I hardly a night
would go by without numerous reports of German Zeppelin activity over
England, but the Germans only had one Naval Zeppelin and five Army airships
in service when war was declared. Historian Dr. David Clarke claims
within a few months most of the Zeppelins had been destroyed or wrecked.
German records reveal Zeppelin activity was very limited anywhere near
UK, yet pilots and other military personnel reported thousands of sightings
of airships. Captain Stansfield of the trawler SS Ape and many of his
on December 15, 1914, reported sighting a black airship. After the war
airship records were read and all German airships were in their hangars
to bad weather. On September 6, 1914, Flight Commander C. E. Rathborne
the Felixstowe Naval Air Station, Suffolk, returned from an early morning
patrol in his seaplane to make perhaps the first report of a UFO by
military officer. "At 5:35 AM, whilst on patrol, I sighted an airship
steering south-southeast, with a silver-colored envelope on the horizon
flying at 1,300 feet, 27 miles south of Orfordness." Scottish Command
Intelligence estimated the total number of reports of "enemy signaling"
as high as 2,000 during 1914 alone. By January 31, 1916, nine Naval
Zeppelins had been built and were ordered to bomb central England. The
Zeppelin scares and rumors generated thousands of reports of phantom
airships, that, based on their records, seldom ever flew near England.
appears many of the reports may have been UFOs. See Strange Daze Website
Commander Graham Bethune just returned from the Nevada UFO Conference
British author Nick Redfern spoke regarding World War II documents that
just released by the Public Records Office in the United Kingdom. The
records revealed that a fleet of flying discs -- called 'Foo Fighters'
were launched from huge cigar-shaped mothercraft during B-17 daylight
over Germany in 1943. The huge aircraft-carrier sized mothership cut
a flight of B-17 bombers launching its discs in front of the B-17 amazed
aircrews. Another report by two RAF fighter pilots saw a similar
'mothercraft' sitting on the ground.

dawn for his

metallic aircraft color was readily apparent in the sunlight, and the
contrail was white against the blue sky. Suddenly the contrail stopped,
at this point the aircraft appeared to be about the size of a pencil
head at arm's length but incredibly, the aircraft seemed to have almost
halted in the sky. John watched as the contrail dissipated right up
the back of the aircraft. He also noticed that the body of the aircraft
seemed a little too long as compared to others he had observed. At that
point, he realized there were no wings attached to the fuselage. He
continued his observation for 6 to 7 minutes until, moving very slow,
lost from view with no change in it's appearance.
Upon receiving the above report from John about 10:00 AM, I noticed
skies above Fayetteville and the Atlanta area 15 miles to the North,
full of jet aircraft making a very obvious checkerboard pattern of vapor
trails (the sky was FULL). Inspection of these via binoculars and video
over the next few hours indicated they appeared to be the normal contrail
vapor formations, slowly drifting more or less eastwards. Due to the
activity, this writer alerted other MUFONGA members in the Atlanta area.

Later Monday afternoon John Bodin was in contact with MUFONGA SSD/FI

at about 11:45 AM, he had been called to Roswell Police Headquarters.

skies over Roswell were also clear at that time, as in the rest of Georgia,
with a mild to moderate wind from the NW.
About 3:00 AM on March 28, 2001, I received an email report from David
of Norcross. He indicated in his report that due to the alert, he too
been observing this aerial activity i.e., checkerboard patterns, and
aircraft appeared not to have wings. Further that at times, some aircraft
seemed to be working in pairs. David also described that one aircraft
appeared to have a 'haze like' sheath around it, seemingly not part

in the opposite direction, again with a 'haze-like' effect around it.
had no knowledge at that time about Michael Hitt's description of the
'heat-like' emanations observed in the craft over Roswell.) Later David
observed a night flight of apparent C-130 Hercules aircraft flying in
direction of nearby Dobbins AFB. These were followed by a number of
helicopters flying in the same direction. He contacted the PIO and ATC
Dobbins AFB to discuss these matters, but was not given any information
relating to the flights or the other aerial activities.
David indicated he had made some video tape of this activity, and this
be under review in the coming days. Please note that these events are
similar to that observed and reported by MUFONGA HQs personnel on July
2000, some 81 miles NW of Chattanooga Tennessee on I-24. (See MUFON
Sept. 2000 and Filer's Files). Brief recap; Sheets, Ausmus and Clifford

observers. Since 2000, this writer has noticed a few other postings
individuals across the USA describing similar observations: Interrupted
contrails and vanishing aircraft. While MUFONGA does not rule out tricks
light and shadow or optical illusion, it is still obvious that something
not quite 'right' about these events, especially the recent Georgia
observations. MUFONGA is aware of the current rumors and discussions
regarding our military aviation forces possessing an active aircraft
camouflage system. If this is so and these events are examples, perhaps
system was malfunctioning this past Monday, or some form of experiments
possibly being conducted. We have also discussed the possibility of
'morphing' UFOs. Thanks to Tom Sheets, SD MUFONGA, ISUR Board COPYRIGHT

TEXAS LIGHTS HOVER OVER CAR
CONROE -- ISUR reports a motorist on March 23, 2001, at about 12:45

noticed a group of lights off to the side that seemed to be about 2

and were overhead and to the left about 125 feet above the ground. The
witness indicated that it appeared to be a group of purple and green

ROSCOE AND FT. JUSTICE -- My husband and I were driving to Lubbock,
5, 2001, and I had been asleep. When I woke at 3:30 PM, I noticed a
strange airplane flying low to the ground. It would circle and then
circle and then hover. It wasn't a helicopter though; it was a long
with wings far back on the tail. I said to my husband, "What is
plane?" He said that he didn't know, but he'd been watching it
time. He told me to watch because it would seemingly stop right in
midair--which is what I had observed it doing. It seemed to be circling
highway, but keeping up with the traffic that was northbound. It was
day; few clouds. No rain. Other motorists appeared to be watching the
as well. It eventually took off very rapidly southward and disappeared.

Mt. Diablo. At times, it seemed to stay in one position, as if to observe
something below, then moved forward, again. The day was a bright, clear,

it was not a plane, not a helicopter, not a blimp, not a balloon, not
glider, or any ordinary object I have ever seen in the sky. It appeared

naked eye, it appeared that it may have had narrow band of dark-colored
very slightly bisecting the middle of the object, which gave the hint
indentation or slightly "segmented" body, but I cannot be
sure because it was
further away from me, at that point. It appeared to be made of a smooth,
cigar-shaped, bright white, nonreflecting material, i.e., not a "shiny"
metal. It had no visible means of propulsion. It's length was about
width of my thumbnail, held at arm's length. The object was still in
when it was followed by a single engine plane flying in the same direction
toward the Northeast. So, I had both the plane and the silent, cigar-shaped
object in view for thirty seconds. The strange object was moving much
than the single engine plane behind and below it. I went in and called
