UFO SIGHTINGS HAVE PICKED
UP AGAIN IN THE US. Numerous UFOs were observed around the US
on September 11, the same day as the World Trade Center attack after
the grounding of all commercial aircraft. UFOs were spotted in
Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan,
Wisconsin, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, Norway, and Japan. US and Britain
attack Taliban in Afghanistan.
REVERE -- Logan Airport had been shut down due to trade center attack
on September 11, 2001. The witness who lives nearby had observed
fighter jets all day, but at 9:00 PM, he noticed a star like object
in the eastern sky. He ran home to get his video camera and his
father. Upon return we were greeted by four others who were also
observing the UFO over Short Beach. Upon zooming in with my Sony
Digital 8 handy cam. I noticed an object that appeared to hover
in the sky, but through my binoculars it seemed to dance all around.
There were blue and red lights that were moving all around the craft.
We then witnessed a splitting of a vessel into parts. One object’s
light began to move rapidly in a different pattern as if to be communicating
with the other ship. One looked like fireworks, and then quickly
disappeared, and reappeared to the left at a 45 degree angle.
We then witnessed a triangle type formation with yet another craft.
I have all sorts of video. Craft flew rapidly east and we then
saw three fighter jets flying to and above these objects. Video
footage played at slow motion shows intricate light patterns on one
ship, with very bright lights in the center and almost force field like
arcs moving from the center to the outer edges. Many witnesses
stopped their vehicles to observe them.
OTIS AIR FORCE BASE -- A couple of friends and I were looking at the
sky September 11, 2001, for any air traffic since there was only military
traffic allowed. At 10:00 PM we saw two Air Force jets in single
file heading toward Otis Air Force Base in Cape Cod. They were
close together and in quite a hurry. A minute later, my friend
pointed out a circular object orange in color moving at an enormous
rate of speed across the open sky. It seemed to zigzag and dance
as if it was intelligent, and then disappeared behind some trees.
I've never seen anything as fast as this in mid air. About ten
minutes later, a similar object came across the sky again from the east
to southwest with the same speed and sporadic movement, and again disappeared
behind some trees. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National
Reporting Center www.ufocenter.com.
NEW YORK A UFO SPHERE CHECKED US OUT WHILE WE FLEW MODEL ROCKETS.
LYNBROOK -- The witness who is the father of three kids went out for
an hour to shoot off model rockets on September 2, 2001. They
shot ten rockets with class B engines when the father witnessed what
appeared to be the wadding out of one of the rockets at 5:35 PM.
Using their binoculars, he realized the object was nothing like they
had ever seen. They were roundish with a red light, but the red
was not sharply defined. Then my sons witnessed the light change
from one big light, to smaller lights. There were many small UFOs
and two bigger ones. They seemed to hover and then move quickly
in different directions. One even went in the opposite direction
without slowing down. Then after ten minutes, they started to
disappear. The closest one was shinny aluminum.
PENNSYLVANIA WHITE TEARDROP
LANSDALE -- The witness was on his deck talking to a friend on the phone
on September 11, 2001, about the attacks. He saw what he thought
were some unusually bright stars grouped together in the shape of a
perfect triangle. I had never noticed this before. One suddenly
shot across the sky that looked like a white teardrop, then it was gone.
This was much too large to be a shooting star. There was no sound
and no colored lights. I have never seen anything like it.
HELLERTOWN -- Also on September 11, 2001, high in the northern sky two
objects were seen flashing red, green, and white lights flying slowly
in a circular path at 11:00 PM. Then one object moved up to about
a 60-degree angle, the other one flew below the horizon. We observed
it for an hour went and went to sleep thinking it must have been satellite
or something and we'd look for it the next night, but it was not there.
There were no airplanes flying this night because of the terrorist attacks.
We heard airplanes flying over before, which drew our attention outside;
these planes went in an opposite direction of the lights. We figured
they were military aircraft, but these lights did not appear to be anything
we had seen before, they were very slowly moving, almost stationary,
about the size of a very large star. Thanks to NUFORC www.ufocenter.com.
SHARON -- The Herald's Joe Pinchot reports A fireball shooting across
the early night sky on Tuesday, October 2, 2001, led many residents
from the southwestern part of Mercer County to call 911. Supervisor
Tom Meyer said calls for what apparently was a meteor started coming
in at 7:41 from the Shenango Valley. "They've described it
as a large ball of fire with a tail," he said. Meyer said
unless the meteor hit the ground in Mercer County, there was nothing
911 could do and there were no reports of that. Meteors, commonly
called shooting stars, are the streaks of light caused by dust particles
from space evaporating in the earth's atmosphere, according to NASA.
The particles themselves are called meteoroids, and, if they land on
earth, meteorites. Astronomer Ted Pedas of Farrell said he did
not see the meteor but from its description it appeared to have been
a bolide, a very large meteor that probably was seen over six or seven
states. Bolides are "the size of a walnut and on up,"
he said. Thanks to The Herald's 10/03/01 and Gerry - FarShores
AKRON -- Beacon Journal's Carol Biliczky reports, "Everyone has
an opinion about the streak of light that shot across the sky on October
2, 2001, at 7:30 PM. NASA spokesman from Glenn Research Center,
David DeFelice suggests it was a bolide -- a big meteor that explodes
into a shower of colors as it enters the Earth's atmosphere.
BRYAN -- The witness reports that, "On September 29, 2001, myself
and three other people saw seven bright orange objects in the western
sky just above horizon at 7:13 PM. We first noticed three objects
that were vertical at several thousand feet altitude. There were
two more vertical objects spaced the same distance and two more flying
around them with very bright orange tails. The five that were
vertical stayed in place for about seven minutes then they all disappeared.
They were the size of a dime at arm’s length. Other witnesses
were Jean Short, Shannon Ooten and Nick Favret all from Bryan.

GEORGIA MISSING TIME
ROSWELL -- The witness had just finished eating dinner at the Waffle
House on Cobb Parkway when he began to feel a tingling sensation in
his rear molar bottom tooth on September 1, 2001. He states, "I
quickly paid my bill and exited the building when I noticed that the
toothache was subsiding. I noticed a faint humming sound in my
ear and looked up, and noticed a tight formation of five aircraft that
did some remarkable things. The three that were closest to me
suddenly descended from about 25,000 feet to about 500 feet. The
other two craft, in the rear, simply disappeared. A bright beam
began to shine down from one of them. That is when I blacked out.
I woke up 30 minutes later in a farm field ten miles away. I felt
refreshed and still had my receipt from the Waffle House in my pocket
that showed I had left the restaurant at 1:30 AM. What happened
during that 30-minute period is beyond me. I can't remember a
thing. Anyway, I found a nearby road and was lucky to find a farmhouse
with a light on inside. The farmer gave me a ride back to my car.
It was then that I noticed the tooth was missing. The strange
thing was that there was no blood. It had completely healed over
as if I had never been born with a tooth there in the first place.
This is what prompted me to visit your website. Looking at my
arms and legs, I notice nothing unusual except that there appears to
be some kind of injection mark with a lump about the size of a pea on
my left bicep. It doesn't hurt and it seems hard. My vision
seems a little blurred. In the back pocket of my jeans, I noticed
a piece of paper that has a type of hieroglyphics.

KENTUCKY UFO LANDING
FORT KNOX. On Sunday, October 7, 2001, Peter Davenport called
to inform me that he had just received a UFO report from witnesses who
claimed to observe a UFO landing nearby. Later, the witnesses
also saw the craft take off. They visited the field and found
evidence of a landing. Burn marks and impressions in the ground
MICHIGAN SIGHTING OF TRIANGLE WEDGE SHAPED OBJECT
COLON -- On September 11, 200I, the witness and his 9-year-old son,
saw a wedge shaped UFO at 10:10 PM. The boy called out when he
saw the craft, and his father thinking this odd as all of the airports
had been shut down. They saw a slow moving craft with randomly
flashing blue, red, and white lights all along its edge. The father
states, "We then ran outside to get a better view. It was
moving due west. As it came parallel to our position I did an
angle check by hand (a trick I learned in astronomy class) I found that
it was about 30 degrees above the horizon over due south. I could
not judge its distance as I realized that I was not dealing with just
any standard aircraft, and these things could really be any size.
I could not detect any sound coming from the craft. As it neared
the western horizon I noticed that the only steady lights on the craft
were the two white lights, one on each rear point. This is more
proof that this type of craft exists. My theory is that they may
have been interested as to why there were no other aircraft in the air
over one of the busiest air traffic continents on this planet."
Thanks to NUFORC.
WISCONSIN STRANGE LIGHTS
Bonnie M reports, "I got a telephone call at 8:40 PM of a strange
light in the sky September 26, 2001. I went outside and to the
northwest was a light in the sky about three times the size of a star.
It was below the top of tall trees. It stayed in this position
for a long time when it suddenly jumped higher in the sky. I got
my binoculars and the object had green, red and white lights, which
changed positions rapidly. Some of the time it looked as if it
was circular with all the lights in a changing pattern. Then it seemed
to jump all over and then changed into a pattern of red, white and green
lights that were in single file and danced around and looked like a
snake dancing in the sky. It got lower, when two airplanes flew
above it. There was a definite look to the light pattern that
lasted from 8:40 to 9:42 PM. It was different from anything I
have seen. Thanks to Jenny Hoppe UFOWisconsin http://www.ufowisconsin.com/county/reports/r2001_0926_winnebago.html
IILLINOIS FOUR UFO OBJECTS IN SKY
CRESCENT CITY -- On September 4, 2001, driving home with my 8-year-old
grand son the sun was setting at 7:00 PM, but it was strange because
it kept getting brighter. I am 50 years old and I've never seen
anything like this. The sun or a light got brighter in every direction
we turned, like it was getting closer and closer to us. We had
to hold a paper in front of our eyes to be able to see the bright orange
that radiated so bright its hard to describe. Then pretty soon
the bright light was gone. An hour later, we noticed there was
a cloud of pink all around us just like when you’re in the fog.
The bottom half was very sharp blue and on top of it was very pink.
We could hardly see as it got closer so we stopped the car. The
pink cloud was still there along with the four ships. These were
not airplanes or vapor. They angled down and two looked a little
smaller with a design of some kind. They turned right and we expected
them to land. Fifteen minutes later, when I got to my house
they were gone but we were very scared by the experience. Thanks
to NUFORC www.ufocenter.com
BOLINGBROOK -- On September 11, 2001, the area had lost electrical power
so the two families were outside and eight witnesses spotted two flashing
lights traveling north side by side at 7:30 PM. After a few minutes
they disappeared, but within a couple minutes the lights began flashing
again near where they were first seen. The flashing lights were
traveling south, but would turn around and travel north. Sometimes
they faded to a red glow. This had gone on for over an hour when
I saw a steady red light traveling east much faster than any jet.
Within minutes I saw a steady white light traveling southeast.
My wife 2 children, neighbor and wife and his 2 children all witnessed
this. (NUFORC Note: The lights may have been navigation lights
on military aircraft patrolling the skies over the U. S. PD)
ASH GROVE at about 10:00 PM I went out in the front yard on September
11, 2001, and noticed a light at about 20 degrees above the horizon.
It was climbing at a high rate of speed, then descended, and did ALL
KINDS of loops, back and forth from left to right, and hovered.
I can see it out my window as I type this. It's a dot in the sky, slightly
brighter then a star with an occasional red flash. Ira still going
in circles, up and down, and all different directions. Its now
10:47 PM and its still there. All air traffic is grounded.
Nothing we have could do this. They're too fast with right angle
turns. Thanks to NUFORC.
NEBRASKA CIGAR METALLIC HOVERING OBJECT
OMAHA -- On September 21, 2001, the witness was driving down 84th street
and noticed a metallic object in the sky near Offutt Air Force Base
about 8 miles away at 2,000 feet in altitude. At first, he thought
it was an "American Airlines" aircraft on approach to Epply
Air Field. However, the object was not flying a normal approach.
At 2:30 PM, the object appeared to be hovering which peaked my attention,
so I drove to a higher elevation in town. As I drove closer the
object descended and disappeared from view. I don't believe it
was a normal jet; even a Harrier aircraft does not begin a descent from
OKLAHOMA FLYING TRIANGLE CHANGES DIRECTIONS INSTANTLY
WOODWARD -- On September 19, 2001, the witness was changing the price
signs on the gas pumps at the travel center when he saw a huge silvery
flying triangle. It was traveling at an impossibly fast speed
going east at 9:30 AM. It stopped in midair, without slowing,
became invisible for a couple seconds, and then sped off west.
It stopped again, without slowing, then dropped straight down out of
the sky then became invisible once more. Following this, I heard
a very loud sonic boom and the roar of a jet, but did not see a jet.
A short time after that, I heard two more sonic booms. Thanks
to Peter Davenport NUFORC.
NORWAY UFO LANDS
OSLO -- On September 25, 2001, police in Helgeland, north central Norway,
had been getting a rash of UFO sightings, while a woman in the northern
town of Bodø insists a small flying object landed in her garden.
Further investigation reveals that a car traveling with a laser light
system may have confused witnesses. Thanks to Frode Sætran and

JAPAN UFO FORMATION SIGHTING
KYOTO STATION -- On 22nd September, several strange objects flying in
formation over the Kyoto JR Station Building were seen by at least 20
people. At the time, Jun-ichi Kato, a leader of OUR-J (the Organization
of UFO Research Japan), was with a member, Tomokatsu Terayama and other
several members gathering for the regular skywatch meeting. Terayama
initially spotted these UFOs at the northeast sky around 12:10.
Kato and other meeting members verified the objects flying in some formation,
and Kato and Terayama succeeded in photographing the UFOs. The
eyewitnesses were not only OUR-J members, but some tourists and the
local residents. Seven objects were flying and changing formation
and each looked like it transformed from a round to an oblong shape.
Those observing the UFOs with their binoculars said that these objects
looked different from any conventional objects. They suddenly
changed direction to WSW and disappeared.
URAWA -- An orange sphere was seen on September 23, 2001, around 16:35,
over the OUR-J branch group's skywatch meeting in Urawa city (near Tokyo).
At first, a member, Mayumi Ikeda (Ms) spotted this UFO about 20 minutes
after the meeting was started. The object was hovering over their
heads for a minute or two and slowly moved to the south, and finally
disappeared as ascending. The object was photographed by OUR-J
staff, Nishikawa and the photo will be posted in the November OUR-J
journal at http://www.our-j.com// Thanks to Toshie

MAPS AND UFO WAVES
Larry Hatch writes, "I have put up a new UFO map on the *U* Website.
This one is different from the others; it is an overlay of three separate
UFO wave years in the USA (1947, 1957, 1973) layered as separate colored
sightings-dots. Each of those waves taken separately seems to
favor certain US regions over others. What seems new, is that
the three years taken together, and excluding all other years, seem
to blanket the USA almost completely. Please click on: http://www.larryhatch.net/WAVLAYER.html
the only blank spots are where population density is sparse to non-existent,
almost like some sort of plan. The same map is shown on George
Filer's website. http://www.filersfiles.com/ufo/ufodatabase.htm.
George was kind enough to have the map image color-enhanced for clarity.
Thanks to Larry Hatch.
Editor's Note: It seems unlikely that random reports would blanket the
entire US unless there was a plan. Many of the sightings are near
US military bases.
AFGHANISTAN US AND BRITAIN LAUNCH ATTACKS
On October 7, 2001, US and British forces launched cruise missiles and
air strikes against Afghanistan blasting key Taliban airfields, military
bases, and terrorist camps. The strikes were designed to suppress
air defenses and to destroy Taliban command, control, and communications
facilities. Prime Minister Tony Blair said British submarines
had launched missiles against targets in Afghanistan. Earlier,
President Bush announced the start of military action in that country.
US Special Forces crossed over into Afghanistan from Tajikistan last
week and have had at least one combat engagement with Afghanis.
US forces were led over the rough terrain with the help of Russian intelligence
officers and guides. US officials confirmed that two US C-130
aircraft arrived in Tashkent, Uzbekistan on September 22, with some
100 intelligence-gathering troops. A second encounter involved
British Special Air Services (SAS) commandos who entered Afghanistan
from the north and engaged in fighting members of Bin Laden's organization.
Many of the Taliban mobile air defenses are radar-guided ZSU-22 and
ZSU-23 guns from the Soviet era. Follow on "wild weasel"
aircraft will attempt to identify any radar-emitting weapons and destroy
them. Once the majority of the air defenses are destroyed, Afghanistan
friendly forces will attack Taliban. The bulk of the friendly
forces are from the Northern Alliance or United Front who have been
getting new weapons. Large amounts of foodstuffs are also being
airdropped by C-17s to starving Afghanis. The idea is that it
is prudent to fight for a new government, and oust the Taliban.
Reportedly many women who are not allowed to receive an education are
urging the young men to desert. Reports claim large numbers of
Taliban troops are actually deserting. A large psychological warfare
program is in operation to overcome Bin Laden's terrorist campaign calling
for a Jihad. Large numbers of leaflets, radio broadcasts, loudspeakers
to blare messages are being used. The Afghans on both sides are
primarily a light infantry force supported by artillery and some armor.
These scattered infantry units are difficult for air power to destroy.
Bombing the front line installations of the Taliban north of Kabul will
likely start soon.
The primary goal of the war appears to be the destruction of the Taliban
regime by arming and supporting anti-Taliban forces. It is hoped
that numerous Afghanis will see the wisdom of joining anti-Taliban forces.
The famine and strict 13th Century policies of the Taliban will likely
create many allies. Winter will start in mid-November making offensive
ground operations difficult until next spring. Humanitarian operations
are designed to save thousands, who would have likely starved over the
winter without aid.
The US and Britain declared that under the United Nations Charter members
have the right of self-defense against countries harboring known terrorist
organizations. The Taliban are losing large numbers of troops
through defections, and that opposition groups in the north and south
are preparing to go on the offensive.
WORLD TRADE CENTER VIDEOS
NEW YORK -- Thomas Buyea writes, "A Japanese website with two new
videos of the "object" and MPEGS. It looks like somebody
was shooting at that second plane? There are some interesting
objects next to the WTC. http://www2.justnet.ne.jp/%7Ekiti/Ufo/wtc/wtc.htm
Damian Barna writes, "I bumped into a witness who was at the World
Trade Center tower who saw a UFO. He said "It looked like
a small cloud one minute and then it was gone!” The witness is
the Vice President of a financial planning firm that deals in futures
and options. Thanks to Rev. Barna [email protected]
TOWER COLLAPSE EXPLAINED -- Glenda Cooper of the Washington Post writes
that, “Abolhassan Astaneh-Asl, professor of structural engineering
at the University of California at Berkeley, is studying a piece of
scrap metal -- part of a column from the core of the World Trade Center
-- to determine why the trade center's twin towers collapsed so quickly.”
The battered piece of curved metal is just a small part of the 300,000
tons of steel that will be removed from the World Trade Center site
and recycled. But before the metal is processed, Astaneh-Asl is
using a National Science Foundation grant to examine as much of it as
possible. Astaneh-Asl said he had found at least six steel beams
and columns from the floors into which the airplanes crashed.
The girders and beams provide evidence that far from disintegrating
on impact, the plane that hit the South Tower penetrated to the building's
core. One beam from the outer part of the building is buckled
and twisted but with a sharp grooved line running along it, which Astaneh-Asl
believes was caused by the wing of the aircraft slicing through. "There
is a very clear line here," he said today during a news conference.
"It looks like a butter knife has gone through it and left a nice
clear line. This can only happen if something very fast hits it."
Similar lines are on a column from the interior of the South Tower,
which has what looks like a smooth bite taken out of two sides. On the
first side (the side of impact) the hole is almost uniformly smooth
from when the plane tore through. The second inner side is more ragged,
from the plane encountering resistance from the metal. "Before,
no one knew what happened to the columns inside, in the elevator shaft
and the stairwell," said Astaneh-Asl. "Now we know the plane
went through and sheared off part of the columns and took a bite out
of it, leaving what looks like a huge bullet hole. The bite we see is
the curve of the engine or the fuselage." But he said that
even with the hole punched out of it, the column did not fall from the
plane's impact. Instead the extreme heat from burning jet fuel, which
reached more than 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, caused the steel to weaken.
When one floor collapsed, its weight collapsed the floors beneath, causing
a pancake effect. Thanks to!
