Sightings in the United States
Decatur – I was walking my dog when I saw something in the air onJune 26, 2014 at 7:45 PM.
I had my smart phone with me and took a picture, but it was quickly gone. When I got home I looked at the photo a little more carefully and saw that it was in the photo.
I do not believe in these kind of things, but what I saw looked like a UFO and it moved very fast. Thanks to William Puckett, Director http://www.UFOsnw.com
Lake Matthews — My girlfriend witnessed this on her way home and pulled over twice to video and take pictures on July 22, 2014.
Thanks to MUFON CMS
San Diego — My brother was in with his girlfriend and they were taking some pictures in 2012. Just recently they looked back at the photos on a large screen TV and noticed a black dot in the photos. We also played around with the color, contrast, brightness of the pictures were amazed. We would love to have them reviewed by professionals. It looks to be some disturbance of the air around the craft. It looks like a key hole in the sky and what is going on there. If you zoom in to 800% you can observe the strange phenomenon happening in the sky. My brother and I are both professionals and my background is bio/chem/physics so we are not crazy folks looking for attention. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Highlands Ranch — I saw a large red and white light in the eastern sky out of my kitchen window on August 18, 2014. It was the night of the “super moon” and the light appeared slightly larger than a planet, but smaller than the moon. It was strange because it appeared red on the left side and white on the right side. It was hovering, as if it were a star and then moved quickly straight up .and then down. I called my husband and adult son to come out on our deck to watch. The light moved left and then right. Through my telephoto lens and I saw a large orange orb with other colored orbs behind it. The orb first seemed round, but then appeared somewhat hexagonal. The light then changed into four lights, two yellow lights a red light and a green one. We all felt we were witnessing a UFO. The lights appeared to land behind some distant trees.Thanks to MUFON CMS
Bunnell — My daughter and I were driving east on Mahogany Drive toward CR 305 at 8:45 PM, on August 20, 2014. At the stop sign, looking east, we saw three very bright lights hovering above the fields. At first we both it was a small airplane, but my daughter said. “That’s not an airplane!” We then turned east on CR 302 to follow a bright white light. She tried several times to get a photo but trees were blocking and followed turning south onto CR 65 to see if we could get a picture. We drove to a clear area and looked west but the lights were no longer there so we went home. She checked her pictures at home and we were surprised by this image. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Illinois Giant Spaceship
Waltonville — I was out fishing with friends, when I noticed this ship just cruising along at a very high altitude on August 23, 2014. I had no way of getting a picture, but this thing had to be at least a half mile long or longer. It had a slight glow to it. It reminded me of some of the giant ships in the Star Wars movie. This is an outline of the craft. Please remember this is just the bottom of the object so I have no idea on how tall this thing was. It was flying in a straight path heading north from my location. I was amazed by this experience. I live in a hotspot for UFO activity. Thanks to MUFON CMS
West Monroe — My wife and I notice an orange bell shape object float about 200 to 300 feet above the ground that I could see through on August 24, 2014.
It headed north then turned 90 degrees east. No sound at all watched it until it disappeared. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Clinton Township— I was taking pictures with my Nikon D3100 camera using an 18mm-55mm lens to capture lightning strikes from a storm that was heading over my residence at 6:25 PM, on August 19, 2014. The storm was moving east and I was shooting when a lightning bolt was discharged from the wall cloud and I managed to capture two pictures of this cigar like object. After taking 145 photos of this storm, I saw two pictures with a cigar shaped object following the south end of the wall cloud. The cigar was only visible after I reviewed my photos on my computer. The object was a dull gray/black, solid body, no lights or windows or protruding areas. The ends are rounded and fit the cigar shape perfectly. It was 30-50 feet in length and about 800 feet high and followed in back of the main wall cloud that contained high winds and rain. It moved to the east, along with the storm. It had moved hundreds of feet in less than 4 seconds silently. A few times my camera would NOT shoot for as long as 5 seconds. There are four pictures without the object. I am sending in the enhanced (contrast/brightness/cropped) picture above.
Adding to this report is an enhanced sepia color picture to make this previous object more visible captured last year on June 17, 2013. This is another picture from a previous rotating wall/funnel cloud and object in case you want to compare the objects from this storm and the recent storm in this report. There is another similar cigar similar to the object shaped in this recent report. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Nevada Blue Orb
Las Vegas – I was scanning the southern sky in mid August from my upstairs patio because a couple of days ago I saw a group or stars that appeared like they were in a circle. I had the camera on and all of a sudden I got a warning on the LCD that stated, “This battery is incompatible with your camera.” I thought I would go in and change the battery, but then I remembered how another sighting turned off my cell phone. I had zoomed in when I saw a blue, pulsating light that was changing colors. I could not get a good edge detail, as there was some kind of aura around it. My cell phone got turned off 3 more times, so I got another battery and was able to film for 20 minutes. It was not a star, as it constantly changed colors in an amazing way. Thanks to MUFON CMS
New Jersey Wedge
Atlantic City – A Ufo hovered about 1 mile off the coast with a large rectangle light on the front of it on July 20, 2014. It was wedge shaped as it passed over our heads with two small blue lights underneath the wing tips. The object was about 500 feet over our heads high. We work at Revel Casino and were checking the outdoor pools and spas on the 5th the floor. It passed over very slowly, no more than 40-50 mph. The building blocked the view after it passed by. At first we thought it was a coast guard helicopter doing night rescue missions. It was very exciting to see it. This was my second time seeing a ufo. My first was the summer of 1967, which I also made a report on. The photo is a rendering/ Ken Pfeifer MUFON NJ www.worldufophotos.org
Malvern — My brother and I were driving home on Saturday, August 2, 2014 at 1:30 AM and we saw a group of lights hovering above the trees over the town. At first there were 6 to 8 orange and red balls of light moving around in circle rotations. There was no sound as they just disappeared from sight. A few minutes later two more balls of light came across town from the same direction. They were moving east to west. They seemed to be moving slow, but they went across the sky in just a few seconds. Thanks to William Puckett, Director http://www.UFOsnw.com
Lakewood — I was returning to work when I spotted a strange, slow moving object in the sky on August 20, 2014.
I pulled out my camera and shot video. There was movement on the object, but no light or exhaust. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Eugene— I saw what looked like straw or chaff falling from the sky while I was on the backyard patio. Some fell in the yard. It is harvest season up and down the Willamette Valley. I was looking for more falling ‘straw’ with my camera, when I saw something else that wasn’t falling straw like material. The object was bright white and looked as if a sheet of white paper was flipping way high in the sky. My camera was handy: Nikon D3000 DSLR with a 55-200mm zoom lens. I got about 17 good shots at full 200mm zoom. I was also watching vultures that seemed to appear in places I had been watching where there was nothing before. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Zapata– On August 12, 2014, we discovered this glowing red anomaly at 8:50 PM. CDT
This is a very interesting catch as it is possibly a ball lightning event, given the electrical storm activity at the time. Ball lightning is still relatively rare to witness, let alone recording it on video.
Note a similar object quickly appearing and disappearing at the top left area of the frame, right at the 00.12 mark. Thanks to William Puckett, Director Http://www.UFOsnw.com
Lake Powell — While using my multi shot feature on my iPhone 5s, in an attempt to capture lightning strikes I captured this object on August 18, 2014. They are in order, and if the iPhone multi shot takes one frame per fraction of a second, these four frames show an undistinguishable orb traveling at un-earthly speeds in a perfectly direct trajectory. There is an appearance of some sort of colorization that matches the clouds, but as it moves from darker clouds to lighter, the dark color remains. If threes four shot encompass about 2.5 seconds, it appears to travel about 50 miles per second. I thought you might investigate further. With one saturation level I find something that appears to be a ring.Thanks to MUFON CMS
Wytheville– On August 9th, 2014, at around 4 PM, my mother, my daughter and I were traveling on 77 North (about 30 miles south of Wytheville. Traffic was moving very slow and was continuously “jamming” up to a slow crawl. I was the passenger, my mother was driving and my 10 year old daughter was in the back seat. I took the opportunity to photograph views of the countryside, being that we are from Michigan and randomly photographed it. I decided to flip through my photos I had taken, when I came across this one. I must say I was pretty surprised as I did not see this object. I know it was not the rearview mirror. There was no sun out, and it was raining and foggy, so I discounted any type of sun reflection. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Gig Harbor – I was on the beach at low tide on Forest Beach on Monday, August 11, 2014 around noon with my children and grandchildren. I was photographing everyone catching crabs and star fish and looking at shells on the beach. I just decided to take a picture of the horizon and the lovely scenery at 12:04 PM. I did not see anything unusual. However, when I downloaded the photos later that day I saw the round yellow object in four sequential (rapid shot) photos and the object was in a different position in each one. I am not saying it’s a UFO, but everyone who has seen the photos says it has to be. It was too far from land to be a Frisbee or a remote control plane. When I zoomed in close on the computer, the object definitely “looks” like a UFO with a little bulge on the top with windows. I was looking out over Hales Passage (part of Puget Sound). Thanks to MUFON CMS
Worldwide UFO Sightings
Sydney — I took these pictures of a sunset for my fiancé at a marina on August 6, 2014. After looking at the pictures later that evening I noticed three bright dots on the horizon and to my amazement after zooming in look like very bright sphere shaped objects hovering. It was in the west as it was a sunset and they were a bright golden color. Credit and copyright should go to Keith Condosiadis.
Note: This photo could be Chinese Lanterns or some sort of reflection. Of course, it could be “real” UFOs? The witness requested a copyright credit so this was included in the report. Thanks to William Puckett, Director http://www.UFOsnw.com
Ladysmith — I observed this object at many times while living there. This photo was taken on June 11, 2014.
I’ve also seen it in other places of the province. I have since moved to Alberta, and have not encountered the object or likeness here yet.
Thanks to MUFON CMS
Maidstone, Saskatchewan— My Husband and I were driving east along the Yellow Head Highway #16 on July 22, 2014. Sometime after midnight we drove into Maidstone to get some rest. We were facing south at the corner of Railway Avenue and Third Street when we saw the object above a field not far from us. I saw a white streak across the sky that suddenly stopped and just hung in the air. It was a long oval that seemed to divide into two rainbow colored parts with a bright white light at one end. My husband and I asked each other if we saw what we were seeing as it divided and disappeared silently.
My Husband’s account of the same sighting was it was 300 meters away and filled up half the windshield. It looked like it was made of a cluster of tubes, green with 2 or 3 red lights at the end. At one end there was a bright white and yellow glow almost like a mist. The colors on it were the brightest and most vivid I have ever seen. In a split second it shot away from us and was gone. Both of us spent more than 10 years in the Canadian military and know aircraft and this was nothing like we have ever seen before. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Penang - I took a photo at the beach of our hotel resort where I stayed for personal vacation on 30th April 2014.
I didn’t notice the object when I took the photo. I just found out there’s a strange object in this photo four months later.
The object changed direction. I didn’t notice the object when I took the photo. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Santa Cruz de La Palma — Still in the Villa de Mazo near the Mirador Las Toscas (Island of La Palma) I was photographing stars and night landscapes on August 6, 2014. I was taking photos and tracked the object and wanted to check where they came from. The object was near a mountaintop covered with forest and looked liked two flashlights with very clear lights. I saw that they were flying very slowly in a horizontal line with their lights fixed, one in front of the other. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Thalasso Resort– My brother was on holiday in Turkey with his family on August 11, 2014. He sent his holiday photos to the family and I noticed the photo attached. I asked him about the object in the sky and he said he hadn’t noticed it. We couldn’t figure out what it is. I hope you can provide an explanation.
Bursa – On August 20. 2014, we were sitting on the balcony and we saw a dark red-orange light. The light at first was growing and then small and eventually disappeared after four seconds.
We thought that undefined flying object was from another planet because we saw UFOs for a long time in the evenings. We sighted UFOs three times for a few minutes. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Eskiþehir – I did not observe it by the naked eye, I only saw it when I was checking my photos on August 9, 2014. Last year my wife and I visited our friends at Eskiþehir, a large city in middle region of Turkey.
I was taking photos of my friends and my wife. None of us observed anything in the sky. Days after, when I was viewing the photographs, I saw a thing on a photo that I couldn’t explain. I attached this picture below. Maybe it’s a reflection. Thanks to MUFON CMS
United Kingdom/Wales Disc
Swansea, South Wales— During the early morning a retired solider looked up and spotted this UFO hovering over the city in
Swansea. Mr. Lewis use to be in the Royal Armored Corps, and immediately ruled out the possibility of this object being a plane or helicopter. Such bell shaped UFOs have been seen in the past. SCW
Mr. Lewis stated: “It was very hot in my bedroom so I opened the window and noticed a strange, stationary object hovering above Swansea,” he said.
“The object made no noise and my first notion was perhaps it was an exceptionally large bird of prey however the object remained stationary for at least five minutes.”

THE NEVER-ENDING BATTLE BETWEEN BELIEVERS AND DEBUNKERSby Sean Casteel.
Is it possible to literally “speak” to the dead? Can a gifted medium actually help us to converse with a loved one who has passed on? The supreme logician, Arthur Conan Doyle, believed it IS possible, while his rival, the magician Harry Houdini, decried the practice as a cruel fraud. Read the story of their sometimes bitter feud in “Revealing the Bizarre Powers of Harry Houdini.” More...
ARISTOCRAT VAMPIRES WELL-TO-DO CORPSE MEDICINEby Peter Fotis Kapnistos.
“They have long been famed for their love of lavish banquets and rich recipes. But what is less well known is that the British royals also had a taste for human flesh.” Two 2011 books on medicinal cannibalism (or blood medicine) have revealed that British royalty routinely swallowed parts of the human body. More...
THE BILLY MEIER SPACE PHOTOS CONTROVERSYby Michael Horn.
Somewhere, 1,340 photographs taken in outer space by Billy Meier in 1975, are in the possession of certain parties most likely affiliated with the CIA…America’s actual secret government. The people who stole those photographs know a few things. They know that Billy Meier’s contacts with extraterrestrials, ongoing now for over 72 years, are authentic. They also know – but probably don’t want to accept – the fact that the best laid, most nefarious, deadly and misguided plans for world domination set in motion decades ago…are doomed to failure. And there’s no gloating here because that failure effectively means extremely bad things for the people of this country…and many others. More...
THE TRIBUTE TO OUR JESTER - THE PLANTARD TAROT OF RENNES-LE-CHATEAUby Mary Alice Bennett.
Look closely at the original Jester or Fool card from the Marseilles French deck and it is obvious that this character portrays a member of the Saracen forces who fought the Templars. His skin tone is different, darker, and he is wearing a huge turban. More...
COULD WASHINGTON D.C. BE PROTECTED BY ANCIENT EGYPTIAN TECHNOLOGY?by T. H. Hughes.
For many decades, perhaps earlier than that even, people in the Washington DC area have noticed a strange occurrence when it comes to their local weather. Specifically, severe storms mostly in the summer when on a direct course to impact the District of Columbia tend to break or split apart at the last minute. Local weathermen have been asked about this many times. Acknowledging that the phenomenon does exist and occurs frequently, their usual explanation is that the storms split apart due to the heat island effect. This effect is caused by the concentration of structures and buildings of Washington giving off more heat than the surrounding area. Yet we generally do not see this with other cities. Storms generally tend to intensify over cities. More...
STRANGE HUMANOID ENCOUNTERS WITH TRANSIENT VISITORSby Scott Corrales.
At some point in the 1990s I had a conversation with Dr. Rafael A. Lara Palmeros, director of research for Mexico’s C.E.F.P organization regarding the motives of individuals who develop an unhealthy attraction to UFO and paranormal phenomena. Dr. Lara mentioned a case involving a certain gentleman from Central Mexico who openly expressed his wish to be “contacted by aliens”, as that would be the solution to all his problems, real or imagined. He went as far as to offer money – not small amounts, ether – to any researcher, contactee or psychic who could make his wish come true. More.

WILL THE VATICAN ANNOUNCE BELIEF IN EXTRATERRESTRIAL LIFE?by Robert D Morningstar.
For decades the Vatican has convened some of the brightest minds in the scientific community around the world to ponder the possibility of extraterrestrial life, and to prepare a public disclosure on behalf of the Catholic Church in case the existence of aliens is confirmed. More...
THE LONG ISLAND ORBS OF AUGUST 15, 2014by Cheryl Costa.
This story is about two interesting and perhaps related UFO sighting incidents on Long Island. The first sighting was at about 10 p.m. in North Babylon, NY located in Suffolk County. Harvey, a local resident, was walking up his drive way that evening and per chance glanced up and observed three red orbs. He tells us that for more than fifteen minutes he observed these objects several different times. More
UPROAR IN VALLE FERTIL OVER ALLEGED UFO IN ARGENTINAby Scott Corrales.
Residents of the department of Valle Fertil report seeing a UFO flying over the area on Thursday afternoon. It vanished two hours later. Photos have appeared on social media showing a light in the sky, and local residents affirm that it is the unidentified flying object. Furthermore, minutes before the alleged UFO's manifestation, there was a slight tremor that frightened the locals, who related it to the subsequent event. More...
ENCOUNTER AT EDWARDSby Jeff Krause.
One of the most troubling aspects of the whole UFO phenomena to me, are the numerous accounts of encounters on military installations, and the subsequent cover up’s, and improper treatment of personnel involved. This is a practice that began within days of the crash at Roswell, when President Truman ordered the creation of the National Security Council by Public Law 80-253, approved on July 26, 1947, and thus the lid was successfully clamped down on the biggest event in the history of the world!

THE WONDERFUL WONDROUS GOLDEN AGEby Louis Hart.
Back on a certain date in the year 2012 it was believed that great changes were to happen to this planet and its residents. Do you remember? There were three schools of thought as to what would take place. One group believed it was the beginning of a wonderful new golden age. That there would be a total overnight change in consciousness and everyone would awaken the next day with hearts so full of love that they were about to burst. More...
BOOK REVIEW ON SPIRITUAL LIBERATIONby Ron Murdock .
"Surrender to life. Allow life to lead you, don't try to lead life. Don't try to manipulate and control life. Let life possess you. You simply surrender. You give total power to life and be with it." - Lao-Tzu. I first heard of Michael Beckwith when I read The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. Beckwith had made some contributions to the book along with a short bio of his at the end of the book. Not long afterwards I wrote an article on home Churches for UFO Digest. A person responded to my article and recommended that I check out what Michael Beckwith had to say. Finally I was able to get my hands on a book written by Beckwith, this being Spiritual Liberation. I started reading it to find out for myself on what Beckwith had to say.. More...Also read: BOOK REVIEW ON SPIRITUAL LIBERATION (Part II)

Two Kentucky witnesses at Lexington reported watching a silent, triangle-shaped UFO hovering overhead that seemed to move away “instantaneously,” according to testimony in Case 59404 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witnesses were outside in their backyard on July 15, 2014, when a black, triangle-shaped object was seen hovering over their home.
The witnesses watched as the object seemed to move away ‘instantaneously.’ . Pictured: Street scene in Lexington. (Credit: Google)
“We were both lying on our back and it was directly above us in the sky,” the reporting witness stated. “I looked at it for at least a minute before pointing it out to my boyfriend, who then also studied it. He confirmed that it was black (or at least dark) and triangular-shaped.”
The object moved away quickly.
“I’m not terribly great with direction, but it seemed to be pointing in an easterly direction. As we lay there discussing it for at least another minute, we watched the object slowly rotate (as if on an axis) in the completely opposite direction (west) – making no noise and showing no fuel trails- and then it was just gone.”
The object seemed to instantaneously disappear.
“It didn’t disappear so much as zoomed off at such a fast pace as to make it seem instantaneous. I do not know if this is pertinent but I had been pointing at it at the time it turned and disappeared.”
Lexington is the second-largest city in Kentucky and the 61st largest in the United States, population 308,428. The above quotes were edited for clarity. No images were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on August 29, 2014.

Shipton's Yeti footprint photographson sale at Christie's
In 1951 Sen Tensing, Shipton, and I descended from the Menlung La ... at about 16,000-17,000 feet we came across a whole series of footprints in the snow, on the lower part of the glacier. There seemed to be two groups, one rather indistinct in outline leading on to the surrounding snowfields. The others were much more distinct with, in places, a markedly individual imprint etched in the 2- to 4-inch covering of snow. We had no means of measuring so after examining them Shipton took four photographs: two of the indistinct prints with myself, my footprints, and rucsac beside them for comparison; the other two photographs were of one of the most detailed and distinct group of prints, with my ice axe for scale, and a second one with my booted foot. The footprint was about the same length as my boot, and I take a size 42 continental, or 8½ British, which is about 12 to 13 inches long. The print was nearly twice as broad as my boot (3 to 4 inches) and had clear-cut edges in the crystalline snow on a base of firm snow ice. There was the definite imprint of a big toe that was broader and shorter than the other rather indistinct toes, of which there seemed to be four or five. We followed these tracks for some way down the easy glacier and noticed that whenever a narrow 6-inch-wide crevasse was crossed there seemed to be claw marks in the snow at the end of the toe imprints. ... Two days later we were joined by Murray and Bourdillon, who, after visiting the Nangpa La ... had followed our route into the Menlung Basin. All tracks had been deformed by the sun and wind.' (Michael Ward, 'Everest 1951: the footprints attributed to the Yeti -- myth and reality', Wilderness and Environmental Medicine, 8, 29-32 (1997)).
Shipton's photographs ignited speculation about the existence of a Yeti which had been growing since N.A. Tombazi made the first European sighting during an expedition to the Sikkim Himalaya in 1925.
Edmund Hillary had a further encounter in 1952 on a pass between the Ngojumba and Khumbu glaciers: 'We were climbing quite a steep pitch when Pemba stopped and picked something off the rock. Obviously greatly excited, he showed it to Angpemba. Feeling somwhat curious, I asked them what it was all about. They placed in my hand a tuft of long black hairs -- thick and coarse, they looked more like bristles than anything else. "Yeti, Sahib! Yeti!" I couldn't help being impressed by their conviction, and it did seem a strange place to find some hair. We were well over 19,000 feet and the Abominable Snowman was obviously no mean rock climber' (Hillary, High Adventure, 1955, p. 103).
Following these various incidents, Hillary mounted an expedition in 1960 to collect and evaluate evidence of the Yeti, with inconclusive results. British mountaineer Don Whillans was a fervent believer, claiming he encountered the Yeti while scaling Annapurna in 1970. He observed a few human-like footprints in the snow around his camp one morning and, that evening, claimed that through binoculars he watched a bipedal, ape-like creature for about 20 minutes as it apparently searched for food not far from his camp.
The Yeti, one of cryptozoology’s highest profile creatures. Does it really exist? There is a distinct lack of hard scientific evidence for it, but the members on this expedition swore blind that they didn’t hoax the photographs … so what made them?
15th human foot washes ashore in the Pacific northwest
A human foot, still inside a New Balance tennis shoe washed ashore in Seattle this week — and if that wasn’t mystery enough, it’s the FIFTEENTH foot that’s washed ashore along the Pacific Northwest coast since 2007!
15 human feet have washed ashore along the Pacific Northwest coast — from Canada down to Tacoma — over the last seven years.
And no one seems to know where they’re coming from.
“Who knows where they originated?” resident Albert Hulsen told FOX31 sister station Q13 FOX in Seattle. “Maybe it’s not from this area at all but from one of the surrounding islands.”
FOX6’s sister station, Q13FOX in Seattle says the latest foot was discovered last Tuesday, August 19th — by volunteers picking up trash.
A forensic anthropologist with the King County Medical Examiner’s Office, where the foot is being examined says the foot likely wasn’t severed, but detached from the body as it decomposed at sea.
“The bones fall apart. They (feet in shoes that have washed ashore) are not being severed. They’re not being purposely cut off. Tennis shoes not only protect the feet but they’re also buoyant, and so they either float on the surface, or they’re in the high part of the water column, so they will float in with the tide,” the forensic anthropologist said.
The Medical Examiner’s Office has released a picture of the tennis shoe in which the foot was found in an attempt to identify the person who wore the shoes.
Q13FOX reports it is a New Balance shoe, men’s size 10 1/2. It is a white sneaker with blue trim.
This model of shoe was first available for purchase in April of 2008.
A black, cotton Hanes sock was on the foot when it was found.
There is no word on whether authorities have made any effort to link this foot to the other 14 that have washed ashore since 2007.
So where are these feet coming from?
A local expert on tides told Q13FOX the feet could be local — or they could be winding up in the Northwest by way of the Strait of Georgia in Canada or the Strait of Juan de Fuca that connects the Puget Sound near Seattle to the Pacific Ocean. - Fox6Now
It's 16-year-old Kyle Naegeli's hobby. And the Katy High School junior is quite good at it. He claims to have caught hundreds of fish using this method.
Naegeli has been a drain angler for four years now, using a hook and fishing line, with hot dogs (“the cheap ones” he says) and shad fish acting as bait.
“Sometimes it takes a few hours to catch something,” he says, maintaining that sewer fishing takes patience. Naegeli doesn't eat the sewer fish, owing to its questionable origins. The fish swim into the sewer line from a nearby pond.
The mysterious ‘earthquake lights’ phenomenon was seen over Napa Valley during the recent seismic event:
MOUNTAIN VIEW (KPIX 5) – Several people called the KPIX 5 newsroom after Sunday morning’s magnitude 6.0 earthquake in Napa, reporting mysterious flashes of light in the sky. Witnesses said the strange phenomenon looked like lightning.
Similar flashes of light have been reported in earthquakes around the world, from Japan to Peru.
Friedemann Freund, a scientist with the SETI Institute in Mountain View, said the same thing happened during Sunday morning’s earthquake. And it wasn’t a transformer blowing up or UFOs.
“What they are, are a consequence of the stresses building up deep below the earth, seven miles like in the case of the Napa Valley earthquake,” Freund told KPIX 5.
He calls the phenomenon “earthquake lights,” the quick buildup of stress that causes an electric current to flow to the surface and burst through the earth. This typically happens before or during an earthquake.
Several North Bay witnesses contacted Freund at the SETI Institute about seeing several flashes around the time the Napa quake hit. They said there was one or two seconds between each one.
The bizarre flashes were documented all over Twitter.
Freund has been studying the lights for 12 years. His team recently looked at 65 occurrences around the world over the last 400 years. Most seismologists don’t believe such things are real.
“There are things that we still don’t understand about the earth, so why not accept unusual, exceptionally unusual phenomena taking place? And the light outburst from the ground is one of them.” – San Francisco CBS Local
A recent high level meeting sanctioned by Chile’s Civil Aviation Department and included 19 highly qualified experts from an array of specialties has concluded that interestingly enough ” UFOs do not present a threat to any other aircraft.” The meeting was taken very seriously – all reports and records, including the entire government’s archive, even the type of reports that would likely remain highly classified in other countries were thoroughly evaluated.
All participants of this meeting stated that UFOs are a real phenomenon, in fact they considered their existence to be obvious. Why is the government of Chile so open and even serious about this topic when the rest of the world seems to either remain silent, secretive, and even dismissive with dodgy explainations like weather balloon malfunctions or military flare ?
The international affairs director for the Chile’s Civil Aviation Department blatantly stated quote “For Chileans, this is completely normal and we don’t consider it news at all.” The stark contrast in government and cultural attitudes between Chile and that of, let’s use the USA as an example, towards the exact same phenomenon is so strange that it even becomes a little creepy. Perhaps the reason other governments aren’t as open as Chile’s about UFO phenomenon could be because they have more to hide.
Certain other governments of the world, may understand the true reality of strange objects in the sky at a depth so far past that of Chile……that, for whatever reason, they became so afraid of what could happen if certain information was shared publicly that they scared themselves into a position of silence, secrecy, and denial.
The results of their analysis and meeting were that UFOs pose a degree risk that would only be a fraction of the same risk posed by a bird flying in the air – most of the risk was associated with the pilots or crew members being distracted.
Interestingly, though, they went on to say that some airborn accidents have been attributed to UFOs around the world, however, they could not find solid evidence the UFO was actually related.
According to worldwide data, whatever intelligence controls UFOs seemingly means no harm towards anyone else it’s sharing the skies with….additionally, they even seem to behave in ways that reduce their risk of an airborne collision.
According to Chile, it’s basically undeniable that some sort of unidentified flying objects exist in our skies but what their goal is is still completely unclear. Perhaps Chile’s initiative towards transparency on this issue will usher other countries to join in…many are already cooperating with them already including France and as you can guess a lot of eyes are on the USA.

Major UFO Saucer Sightings- Multiple Witnesses (Video And Photos)
Major UFO Saucer Sightings- Multiple Witnesses (Video And Photos)
(Before It's News)
(N.Morgan) There has been a massive influx of UFO sightings in the last several months. Each of these crafts in the sightings are becoming more bold, in their visits. Many wonder if these are our military aircraft or something other worldly. A major UFO sighting captured on daytime video by multiple witnesses, has been sent in to Secureteam for analysis. Large black saucer shaped UFOs are being captured in the skies over the eastern US. Here we have multiple videos from different angles of one of these large saucer shaped craft.
At some 4.6 billion years old, the Sun is about halfway through its life. In another 5 billion years it will be a normal “adult” star no more. Here’s the skinny on the upcoming demise of the star that you owe everything to: light, warmth, energy, and life.
1. Stars like the Sun will shine for 10 to 20 billion years. But the time that a star like this spends on the so-called “main sequence,” as a normal, “adult” star, lasts for some 5 billion years. In 1942 astronomers demonstrated that once a star transforms 12 percent of its hydrogen into helium, it begins a new kind of stellar age.

2. When a star begins to run out of nuclear fuel, the star turns off, almost like burning out. Because the heat is suddenly turned off, not to mention radiation pressure pushing outward, the star begins to contract.
3. Stars like the Sun face a curious path toward demise. In their old age gravity takes over as the fusion process shuts off. The material left in the star begins to push inward into a smaller and smaller space.
4. Amazingly, the Sun’s average density is pretty close to water. As the dying star falls inward, the Sun is destined to become a red-giant star, and its outer envelope inflates and is shed outward. The Sun’s diameter will push outward as its temperature plummets. During the red-giant phase, the Sun’s diameter will reach approximately where we are, at Earth’s orbital distance.
5. As the Sun swells to a maximum red-giant diameter, it may engulf Mercury, Venus, and Earth, or at least push what is left of these planets outward. At this point the Sun will span 150 times its present size.
6. The dying star isn’t completely dead yet, however. Gravity pushes shells of hydrogen and helium to densities where nuclear fusion can begin, and they are ignited, albeit for a short time. When this happens with the Sun, it will briefly be 2,100 times brighter than we see it now.
7. Some 7 or 8 billion years from now, the Sun will transform into a spectacular end state, creating a brief visual show in our part of the galaxy. It will first become a white-dwarf star, a degenerate remnant that is cool but incredibly dense.
8. The big show will come when the Sun transforms into a planetary nebula, a glowing series of shells of gas that expand outward at various speeds, putting on a fluorescent galactic performance that will last for 50,000 years.
9. As the dying star lumbers on, carbon plays a role as the most important byproduct of fusion. Carbon in the Sun’s atmosphere will settle inward and add to a carbon-rich core. But the core will not ignite in nuclear fusion. Instead, it starts a fit of helium burning, casting the star’s outer layers into interstellar space, forming “belches” of planetary nebula material.
10. The last helium flash, however, splatters dust and gas outward at higher velocities and shapes the planetary nebula by setting up collisions between the new “bullets” of high-speed material and the older, slower-moving shells.
11. Now the planetary nebula evolves its own personality. The white dwarf heats up, stripped of its layers, and ionizes the surrounding gas, heating it as ultraviolet photons rob electrons from neutral atoms. The gas glows like a fluorescent bulb.
12. Superwinds and fast winds roiling off the stripped star interact with the surrounding gases, sculpting the planetary nebula into one of a possible variety of shapes, from spheres to egg-shaped masses to bipolar, squashed ovals.
13. Interplay between the superwinds and fast winds from planetaries sets up some of the intricate architecture you can see in telescopes, with the appearance of a hollow shell carved out by the glowing boundary between the two winds. The shock front is what we see as the edges of the nebula; the hollowness inside is an illusion, as there’s plenty of material inside the nebula, but it does not glow with excited atoms.
14. Magnetic fields also help shape the planetary nebula, modeling the last screams from our Sun, a nebula that will slowly fade away, leaving a tiny white-dwarf remnant star where once was a mighty solar system complete with a great third planet, full of civilization and promise.

"It is reported that at 8:50pm a huge, flaming object, believed to be a meteorite, fell on a farm in the neighbourhood of Grovers Mill, New Jersey, twenty-two miles from Trenton."
Fortunately a reporter was within reach and described what was happening:
"Good heavens, something's wriggling out of the shadow like a grey snake. Now it's another one, and another. They look like tentacles to me. There, I can see the thing's body. It's large, large as a bear and it glistens like wet leather. But that face, it ... Ladies and gentlemen, it's indescribable. I can hardly force myself to keep looking at it. The eyes are black and gleam like a serpent. The mouth is V-shaped with saliva dripping from its rimless lips that seem to quiver and pulsate. The monster or whatever it is can hardly move. It seems weighed down by ... possibly gravity or something. The thing's raising up. The crowd falls back now. They've seen plenty. This is the most extraordinary experience. I can't find words ... I'll pull this microphone with me as I talk. I'll have to stop the description until I can take a new position. Hold on, will you please, I'll be right back in a minute.."
The USA Secretary of the Interior rushed to make an announcement:
"Citizens of the nation: I shall not try to conceal the gravity of the situation that confronts the country, nor the concern of your government in protecting the lives and property of its people. However, I wish to impress upon you -- private citizens and public officials, all of you -- the urgent need of calm and resourceful action. Fortunately, this formidable enemy is still confined to a comparatively small area, and we may place our faith in the military forces to keep them there. In the meantime placing our faith in God we must continue the performance of our duties each and every one of us, so that we may confront this destructive adversary with a nation united, courageous, and consecrated to the preservation of human supremacy on this earth. I thank you."
This all happened on Sunday, October 30, 1938 and, as you will no doubt know, was only a War Of The Worlds radio drama but it supposedly sent people into panic thinking it was for real.
Thousands of people, believing they were under attack by Martians, flooded newspaper offices and radio and police stations with calls, asking how to flee their city or how they should protect themselves from gas raids. Scores of adults reportedly required medical treatment for shock and hysteria.
Now there is a coincidence attached to all of this!
The War Of The Worlds author HG Wells stopped his car to ask directions in San Antonio, Texas and amazingly the man he asked turned out to be Orson Welles - the man who had petrified a sizeable chunk of the population with his radio broadcast of Wells's alien invasion story.

A New Jersey witness at Washington Township reported a bright orange, bell-shaped UFO, in her back yard that quickly moved into the sky and disappeared, according to testimony in Case 59379 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was outside at 8:30 p.m. on August 14, 2014, as a storm was approaching from the northwest when the object was first seen.
The object quickly moved into the northwest sky and disappeared. . Pictured: Washington Township. (Credit: Google)
“I walked out my back door and picked a tomato off a patio plant,” the witness stated. “I then walked to the fence on my right and tossed the tomato over it – for the birds. When I turned around, I saw a large orange/red glowing object that reminded me of a burning ember from a fire – very bright.”
The witness described the object’s movement.
“It came from over the top of the neighbor’s lower roof (which is probably 10 feet high), moving steadily toward the southeast through our backyard. It seemed to move right through trees/leaves – if it navigated around them, I didn’t notice that.”
The witness described the object.
“There was no sound, no smell, no anything. It appeared to be translucent with fire inside of it (or like churning gas), and at some point I saw a clear edge to it. I remember thinking I could see through it, if it weren’t for all that fire inside. When I say it looked like a jellyfish, it was the shape of a contracted, bell-shaped jellyfish.”
The object was low to the ground.
“It was approximately six feet off the ground moving through the backyard and I was only about 10 feet from it at one point. I estimate the size to be eight feet tall by five feet wide. It moved at a pace like a fast walk, but steady.”
The witness then called to her husband to come out and see the object.
“My husband only saw the bright orange glow, not the object itself, because there were trees blocking his view of it by the time he got there.”
The witness tried to keep the object in view.
“Knowing I would lose sight of it on that side, I ran to the other side of the backyard (where I had thrown the tomato over the fence). I was expecting to see it clear the front of the house, low to the ground like I just saw. I saw it in the sky over the houses across the street, climbing higher in the sky – it must have climbed pretty fast because it was only about six feet off the ground in the backyard. Now it was way above the trees on the other side of the street.”
The witnesses attempted to get a photograph of the object but were blocked by trees.
“By the time I ran out front (only a matter of seconds), it was now in the southwest sky and very high up, where planes fly. We continued to watch it climb higher and higher until it was a bright glowing orange dot and then it disappeared. When I saw it, I wasn’t scared – more amazed and curious than anything.”
The witness has ruled out Chinese lanterns.
The witness is certain – based on size – that the object was not a Chinese lantern. . Pictured: Washington Township. (Credit: Google)
“I looked at those memory lanterns people are sending up and while the shape was similar, the glowing intense color and size are all wrong. If it was a man-made article, like one of those lanterns, it would have gotten caught on something (trees, limbs, bushes, fences) as it passed through the yard. Our next door neighbor was driving toward home at that time and saw a bright orange glow coming from our backyards.”
Washington Township is a township in Gloucester County, New Jersey, population 48,559. New Jersey MUFON is investigating. New Jersey has a current UFO Alert Rating of 4 with a higher than average number of recent reports nationally. New Jersey had 24 UFO reports in July 2014 – the 11th highest reporting state – while California had 104 reports as the highest reporting state. The above quotes were edited for clarity. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.
The UFO Alert Rating System is based on five levels – 1 through 5 – where states with 150 or more reports for the month are rated an Alert 1; states with 100 or more reports are rated an Alert 2; 25 reports or more for the month are rated an Alert 3; 13 or more reports are rated an Alert 4; and those states with less than 13 reports for the month are an Alert 5.
For Years Scientists, conspiracy theorists, ufologists all have theorized about how large rocks — some weighing hundreds of pounds — zigzag across Racetrack Playa in Death Valley National Park, leaving long trails etched in the earth.
Now two researchers at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, have photographed these “sailing rocks” moving.
On Dec. 20, 2013, the cousins Richard Norris and James Norris cataloged 60 rocks moving across the playa’s pancake-flat surface.
The rocks move about 15 feet per minute, according to the report.
After getting permits from the National Park Service, they installed a weather station in the area and placed 15 stones equipped with global positioning devices on the playa.
“Observed rock movement occurred on sunny, clear days, following nights of sub-freezing temperatures,” they wrote in a report published Wednesday in the online scientific journal PLOS ONE.
Cousins Richard Norris and James Norris said the movement is made possible when ice sheets that form after rare overnight rains melt in the rising sun, making the hard ground muddy and slick.
The “GPS stones,” which were engineered to record movement and velocity, were stationed at the southern end of the playa where rocks begin their strange journeys after tumbling down a cliff.
At the end of last year, Richard and James Norris returned to inspect the instruments.
“We found the playa covered with ice,” Richard told the Times. “We also noticed fresh rock trails near shards of thin ice stacked up along the shoreline.”
The following afternoon, “we were sitting on a mountainside and admiring the view when a light wind kicked up and the ice started cracking,” he said.“Suddenly, the whole process unfolded before our eyes.”
A man in Turkey believes he may have taken a photo of a UFO near Van Lake, home of the Van Lake Monster.
Gaziantep News reports they received an email from Ahmet Baygümüş with a UFO photo attached. Baygümüş says on August 24 at around 7 pm he was taking pictures of the landscape and the sunset with his phone. He did not see anything unusual. However, when he reviewed the pictures later he saw a strange light in the image.
Baygümüş says he returned to the location the next day at the same time, but did not see anything unusual.
Baygümüş sent the image to Gaziantep News hoping they could offer an explanation as to what he might have seen. Gaziantep News suggested it appears to be some sort of light beam, and listed Baygümüş’ contact information for people to share with him their thoughts.

Given that Baygümüş did not see the light when he took the picture, it is possible that the light is due to some sort of reflection or flare happening in the phone, and the orb of light was not actually there.
Gaziantep News also noted that Van Lake is home to another paranormal mystery, the Van Lake Monster. Rumors of a strange creature living in Van Lake are said to have begun in 1995. Some researchers say there was a story in the local newspapers in 1889 of a man who was reportedly carried away by a creature that came out of the lake. Supposedly, Turkish officials were sent to the area, but did not find the monster.
In 1997, a 26 year-old man by the name of Unal Kozak claimed to have captured several videos of the Van Lake Monster. A CNN story on the video said that images were sent to Cambridge University to be examined, and that even Jacques Cousteau was planning a trip to the lake to investigate. However, neither Cambridge University nor Jacques Cousteau have presented any analysis.
Kozak’s video is still under debate, and locals are split over the existence of the Van Lake Monster. Although, everyone has fun with the legend. The town of Van has a statue depicting the monster.

Did Kozak capture a genuine lake monster in his videos? Did Baygümüş capture an image with a light flare or something more mysterious? Do mysterious orbs of light have anything to do with lake monsters? So many mysteries, so few answers. Let us know what you think.
AMAZING UFO PHOTO AND DIASAPPEARING PEOPLE IN JAPAN JUNE 24, 2014 …………. MT. TOKACHIDAKE JAPAN
On June 24, 2014 at the camping site near Mt. Tokachidake (an active volcano in the northern part of Japan), which has been famous for UFO sightings for decades. You can see a bright object soaring up from the bottom right corner of the video screen, but in reality, my camera was facing the zenith, and the object was moving horizontally across the sky from the east to the south. I fixed my camera position and did not follow the object, so the zigzag motion of the object was not because of camera shake. I was the only one looking up the sky and other people (mountain climbers) were already sleeping in their tents. Since the site was at an altitude of 1200 meters and the temperature was very low at night, there were no insects flying, and the fireflies (lightning bugs) do not exist in the area (the fireflies do not fly at such a high speed in the first place and my camera cannot catch such dim lights). The flying insects usually look like black dots in the light and never reflect the light so brightly (only the moth would show blurry reflections). The site was completely dark and there were no outdoor lights nearby (and it was a dark moonless night). I could see many stars in the sky with the naked eyes, but my small digital camera (CASIO EX-H10) could not catch any starlight. So you can guess how bright that object actually was. These video clips are for the general citizens, so at first I did not go into details in my explanation for the media interview especially regarding somewhat mysterious incident occurred before the UFO appeared. About one and half hours before I saw UFO, I was surprised by a small mechanical sound that I heard from my left side (no more than two feet from where I was standing in the camping site), and I saw a long-haired young woman in white clothes.
As I mentioned,the site was almost completely dark and I could not even see my shoes very well, so I could narrowly recognized that woman but could not see her face. Then I saw a small and round red light in front of her chest or her solar plexus. I supposed she would be fixing her camera to a tripod to take pictures of beautiful starry sky (but I did not actually see any camera or tripod) . That slender lady was about 5 feet and 7 inches tall and had black hair. Although I wondered why she was working in the darkness without any lights, I stepped back silently because she did not seem to have noticed that I was standing so close to her and I did not want to surpise a young woman in the darkness. After that I kept standing for a while at some distance from her, but the next time I found that she was gone – disappeared without making any sounds of walking. In the camping site,I could hear footsteps very well even if they were more than 20 meters away.
I wondered where she had gone because I did not hear any sounds of car. It was too dangerous for anyone to leave the site on foot because there were wild bears often appear in that area. She was not looking up overhead but straight ahead to the east where the Tokachidake mountains rises – and it was the very direction where the UFO appeared about one and half hours later. Although there is no certain links between that mysterious lady and the UFO, I have to say that I had seen another mysterious young gentleman who suddenly disappeared before another UFO appeared in the sky when I was waiting for the chance to videotape UFO on the beach of Kamakura on February 25 in 2014. At that time, I saw a large disk-shaped green UFO that circled over my head and flew away. I was so surprised to see the UFO at a such close range that I momentarily forgot about taking its picture even though I had my camera at hand. Having had such similar two experiences, I came to believe that the mysterious lady and the gentleman may have something to do with the UFOs that appeared after these mysterious people disappeared. I have videotaped night scenes with my digital camera many times but I have never seen any digital noises. On the other hand, I have heard from my friends that they had witnessed a strange bright object flying with the zigzag motion in Hokkaido area which is one of the most famous UFO hot-spots in Japan. For the past several years, I have debunked many fake photos and videos as well as mistaken UFO reports, but it does not mean that I am a non-believer. I just wish to know the truth only. So I have conducted a camping in Hokkaido which is very far from Tokyo where I live. And fortunately I had opportunities to videotape the flying objects UFO with zigzag motion. Special thanks to Yuji Mashiko, witness and photographer.
In March 2010, an extraordinary event took place in Lavonia, New Hampshire…a small town in the central part of the state, situated between Lake Winnipesaukee and Winnisquam Lake. The following NUFORC reports are from two witnesses who had the same encounter together. Some may feel that these witnesses were attempting to generate a hoax in order to cover up something else. I’ve been willing to give the witnesses consideration and the benefit of the doubt until evidence to the contrary comes forward:
My name is D. I am sixteen years old and I live in New Hampshire. Last Saturday night I went out with my girlfriend, who lives in Laconia, when we had the following experience: I was with her around 11. We wanted to take her Mom’s car because it was nicer and we wanted to go look at the stars. We went to Fun Spot at the back parking lot in Laconia. There were 8 cars already there when we arrived. Little by little, the cars started leaving one by one. We were the last car in the parking lot. Then the lights of the parking lot and the lights of the houses around us and the lights of the houses down the street started to go out one by one. Then my girlfriend noticed something blocking the moon and asked, “What was that?” I knew it wasn’t a cloud because it moved back against the wind and blocked the moon again. I don’t know how to explain this but it turns into a ball when it wants to slow down and move around quickly and when it wants to go fast, straight, it turns into a flat plate with maze box-shaped lined lights. These were on all the time. The colors were dim yellowish white and did not change. I cannot tell whether these were part of the bottom or not. It flipped a lot. I did not know which side was right or up on it. It was doing this over the trees across the street from the parking lot. It suddenly crossed the street towards our car. Its size was as big as 14 houses. It was really quiet. That’s when we had to leave. But I did not have time to turn on the headlights.
We put the clutch in to start the car and jammed it into 1st and floored it. The front end got picked up and the car could not move. We steered left and right but the car just kept on going up into the air. My girlfriend was scared and she had boogers coming out of her nose while I was cursing. The car was going up and the back wheels were off of the ground. Then I looked out of my window and saw that the parking lot park lines started getting smaller. Both our windows were down this whole time. The front windshield started to crack and shake and the cracks spread from the passenger side to the driver’s side. It popped outwards like it was pulled out.
Something yanked my wrist. Not aggressively. And the whole time in my head something was telling me “Don’t panic,” or “Don’t be scared.” And it wasn’t in English in my head but I got the meaning. It wasn’t a language – I don’t know how to explain it. And on my girlfriend’s side, it had her half-way out of the window. Her butt was off of her seat, maybe one-and-a-half or two feet? and the car was pointed almost completely straight up at the stars – yet I saw no stars.
Every time I tried looking at it, in front, a white film went over my eyes. It was kind of like staring at the sun with your eyelids closed. I could not hear her screaming but I know that she was screaming. My ears felt like they kept on popping from the altitude. I couldn’t hear. The smell was like unbearable, like you want to close your nose. It was spicy, like pepper-sprayish, and clean at the same time – it was a smell that you could stand but you would close your nostrils because it still smells bad. When I tried to fight and get my wrist back in the car, that’s when the grip got stronger. It was pulling my left arm up out of the window – there was no pain but it was strong – …. I was trying to fight off the grip on my wrist. My tongue was numb. The horn beeped by accident and the grip got a little loose. It beeped again in the struggle and my arm flopped down in the car. My girlfriend also fell back in her seat and we realized we were still up in the air. ! It took 2 seconds for the car to drop. When we dropped, the air bags came out. We floored it as fast as we could through the town. It was almost a straightaway to go to my girlfriend’s house with very few turns to take. During this time, both of us couldn’t stop crying. We arrived at her house and her Mom asked, “What happened?” All this took place from 11pm to 12:30 am. It seemed like we were in the air for 10 minutes and it felt like it was forever. Her Mom called the police, and a policeman came.
The policeman did not believe us when we first told him what had happened until he looked at the vehicle. There were no scratches or dents or anything. He said that there was no reason for this to have happened to the car when there are no dents or scratches and no reason for the windshield to shatter and pop out the way it did. He had no explanation for why the windshield popped outwards. Also, when I went to open my cell phone in front of the policemen, I got shocked by it.
On Monday, I went to my doctor to get a whole physical to make sure I was OK. My wrist had a puncture wound while my forearm has a cut that is semi-circular and there’s blood on it. I do remember that when I first looked at my arm after I got it back in the car, it was red with blood. But by the time we got to my girlfriend’s house, there was no blood anywhere. On the center consul of the car, there is an imprint of her hand. I don’t quite understand what the policeman said but it was something about the skin of her hand leaving an impression.
Now, I don’t like to feel bumps in the car, or feel anything that trembles like a boombox. I don’t want to be out in dark areas at night. I also don’t like to walk out to my Mom’s car, anymore, outside. “
“My name is E and I’m eighteen years old. I live in Laconia. Last Saturday night, my boyfriend D came up to see me and we went out. When we got to Fun Spot, in Laconia, we parked in the back in the separate parking lot. We turned off the car and it was totally silent. We were just sitting there and I looked up at the moon. I saw this weird black-shaped object. And then, I said to my boyfriend, “What was that?” He looked up at it and he said, ”If it gets any closer, we need to leave.” I kept staring at the moon to see if it was just a plane or something. It moved back across the moon. It was huge and it looked like it was zig-zagging or changing shape. I couldn’t tell. He said, “I think it’s coming closer.” It flew so fast over the trees getting closer to where we were. It felt like it was zeroing in on us. It blocked the moon. And then, we started panicking and driving away. I thought were were going to hit the Bingo building. We turned left but it felt like we went off of a jump – you know that feeling? like we were on a rollercoaster? And we were in the air. I was trying to pay attention to everything that was going on but it felt like I couldn’t. When I looked up, everything was black. The smell was not nice but it was like something you could stand. It was an odor I’ve never smelled before. I heard absolutely nothing – it was silent. I felt immobilized like I had no control over what I was doing or over my body. I could see nothing. It was like opening your eyes in a pitch black room.
I felt really nervous and scared. I don’t remember crying or screaming. I held on to the center console because I felt like I was lifted. I was holding on so tight that my thumbprint is imprinted on the center console. And then, when I finally realized what was happening, I was so close to the windshield that my body was going forward with my arms behind me. Everything was black. I heard a loud noise like a horn. Once. And then, the car just dropped. I hit my eye on the dashboard and the airbags came out. I couldn’t believe what had just happened. I held my face and I looked over at my boyfriend. I saw that his left arm had blood. I said, “Are you OK?” I looked at the windshield and it was cracked, totally, but only on the passenger side. I could see D but I couldn’t see anything outside. The only thing that made the car drop was the sound of the loud horn. When the car dropped, there was a loud boom. After that, we just drove so fast out of there. The smell went away after we drove away. And I started crying. And I said, “What the h—l just happened?” My boyfriend said, “I don’t know, I don’t know.” I didn’t feel like they were following us.
When we got home, my Mom said that she could hear me from the outside while I was freaking out. I couldn’t stop crying. My Mom said, “Calm down and tell me what happened.” I said, “You’re never going to believe me.” “Is it my car?” she asked.
And I said, “Let me explain,” because I felt that if I didn’t explain it fast enough, it was just going to go away from my mind. At about 12:15 am, a cop arrived. I told him what had happened while I was sitting down at the dinner table. My boyfriend was sitting next to me – it was then that I noticed that there was no more blood on his arm or his clothing. The cop didn’t believe me at first until he finished looking at the car. He told my Mom that there was no reason for the air bags to come out because nothing else on the car was damaged. He didn’t check underneath the car but we found out later that the underside was totaled. The cop said that he was going to the place where we had been.
I just felt thankful that we’d gotten out of there. But I couldn’t stop crying for more than 2 hours afterwards. My Mom said, “You should go take a shower and get the airbag dust off of you.” But I didn’t want to be alone at all. I felt lucky. And there were no scratches or anything anywhere on my body.
The first night, my dream was that I was a little girl, maybe 6 or 7 years old, in an Elementary School classroom. I was looking at myself as a little girl. And then it was like the teacher called me up and I couldn’t talk or say anything – but everybody else seemed to say something for me. Like everything I wanted to say, everybody else was saying it except for me. They were saying exactly what I wanted say. I have never had a dream like this before – where I am a little girl and see anything about the past. I did not feel right at all.
I am better now. I still worry about seeing this thing again and I pay attention to the sky at night. I really don’t go out at night, anymore, because I’m scared. “
UPDATE: someone on the ATS forum contacted the Laconia, NH police and received the following response:
Officer Batstone responded 03-21-10 at 0017 hrs., to take the report from the 18 and 16 year old and look at the vehicle that was damaged. The incident they reported occurred at the Opechee Park, which is no where near Fun Spot as they report to you.
According to the ATS post, Opechee Park is 0.8 miles away from the Fun Spot. Not a great distance, but obviously the “incident” reported was different than the incident submitted to NUFORC.
Honestly, I think these kids were hesitant to tell the police that they parked in the Fun Spot for some reason, so the police report states Opechee Park. BTW, the Fun Spot is a huge place and (from what I gathered online) the parking area is immense.
However the time of 0017 hours (1:17am) on March 21st does correspond correctly in both reports.
This proves there was indeed an incident, that a vehicle was damaged and that an officer was called to the scene.
NOTE: Lavonia is approx. 40 mile south of Indian Head, NH…the location where Betty & Barney Hill claim they were abducted. Lon
