Unknown Object Photographed through Sun Roof in St. Petersburg, Florida
UFO Depiction
Published: 8:46 AM 1/4/2014

St. Petersburg, Florida - July 31, 2013

A friend sent me this photo that her son took from his car roof window a while back. He was visiting with her on New Year's Eve in St. Pete this week and showed it to her for the first time.

She said he was apparently too "shaken up" by the experience to say anything about it until that night. I think he might talk to you about it, but I haven't asked yet. I thought it was certainly compelling enough to be analyzed by someone.

I thought I'd check with you first before I pursue it with him further and ask him to contact you if you're interested.

I'm located in Yanceyville, NC. out from town in the country. Three nights ago I was taking the dog out for the last time at 10 p.m. Since I've seen many unusual objects in the sky over the years, I always study the sky while I'm waiting for the dog.

This time, a stunning, huge oval object flew across the sky from the direction of Raleigh towards the west of Danville, VA on a northwest course from the southeast. It was a crystal clear night.

The object was perfectly formed and looked as though it had clouds inside it - as though it was transparent. It was an odd silver color, but was strangely dull but at the same time, mildly glowing enough for me to see it in my dark area.

It came from behind my house and was moving fast, but slow enough for me to watch going across the clearing across the pond and past the tree tops on the other side of the pond. It was huge.

I was stunned at the size. I waited to see if it would come back into view, but it was traveling at a specific speed and direction as though it had a destination. There was no sound and no trail of any kind.

I instantly wondered if it was ours because of its deliberate travel and was making itself semi-transparent so as not to be noticed by the general public. I know we have that technology at this point.

Out of all my own sightings, I've never reported anything until I saw this photo and thought someone should have it.

I got Nita to talk to her son tonight about the picture. He told her it happened in July, 2013. He was driving with the sun roof open when he saw it so he stopped the car so he could watch it.

Apparently it scared him to death to the point he doesn't want to talk about it. She asked him why he waited so long to tell her.

They were in a conversation about her seeing two UFOs of some sort when she was out in the carport having a cigarette. That's when he showed her the picture. He said he hadn't showed her because he was still upset by it and didn't want to talk about it.

They're very close and she said he still seemed to be very rattled when he showed it to her.

I just wanted to determine if it was some kind of hoax he was telling her. I think he's telling the truth. He's 28. I can see the edges of the sun roof in the photo.

I had one terrifying experience too, so I know how he feels if he was too scared at the time to talk about it now.

Unknown Flying Object Captured on Photo in Sri Lanka
UFO over Sri Lanka
Published: 9:38 AM 1/4/2014

Sri Lanka - December 11, 2013

I have a genuine photo of a mother ship and scout ships flying around it. I have learned it is genuine. Would you like to have a look?

Here are the photos, indeed same photo but number 2 little more exposed in order to visualize the scout ships that are flying around the mother ship.

I can send you the position on my location and relevant camera data. Here I can already say that this was a completely surprise for me because I did not see this in the monitor. There was only a small tiny dot.

Well, when I had it in the laptop and made it larger I did realize this was something special.

December 1, 2013: I went to Sri Lanka for Ayurveda Therapy, that did not work out so well, but that is another story.

I had my Nikon D 5000, tripod and 70-300 lens. I was hoping for shot some of those fireballs I read about in the papers. However, nothing came my way; the weather was not very good, only few days with nice evening sunsets.

Nevertheless, I decided to try my luck with shooting some blind shoots. That is using the Bulb program and hope for the best. Well, the Nikon monitor and the lens 4.5- 5.6 do not show very small items, or to be frank I have no good night sight. So, I did manage to catch some small dots to the chips, but not until I came home I started to enlarge this stuff.

I was really surprised and could not understand what that was, However, when I "overexposed" the photo I saw the small scout ships that flying around the mother ship I realized it was something special.

Of, course there were no other witnesses. Well, there was nothing to see in the first place, as I say I did not realize what I see until I came home. This might of course be a hologram or some other fake, but I do not try to hoodwink anyone.

My hotel name Ayurveda Paragon, is Located close to the town Calle in southwest Sri Lanka, with a nice view over the Indian Ocean. There are no lighthouses etc.; only small fishing ships/boats.

I discovered just now that the time of the photos are wrong, and I also that some of the mornings I baked up early and went out to the balcony to try my luck. The local time was 05:21 (a.m.) Ok, so I also include one photo that was shot 6 seconds before the previous.

Camera - NIKON D5000

Thanks,

Pentti

Triangle UFO with Red Lights Reported over Oakland, California
UFO Depiction
Published: 7:52 AM 1/1/2014

Oakland, California - 12-22-13

Shape: Triangle - Duration: 2 minutes.

Triangular black object with red lights seen over Alameda. A very large, black triangular craft with red lights on its perimeter was seen maneuvering west of my home at 13th Avenue and 20th street, in the direction of Alameda or the Bay.

(Monitoring the weapons cache at the old Naval Air Station?) I estimate it was 1/2 mile above the ground and maybe 2 miles away. It had 3 sides, with red lights.

Last night was crystal clear, yet this object appeared blurry. It made sharp and quick turns. My intuition leads me to believe "they" were looking for someone or something.

I continued to watch, covered in goose bumps, for approximately 2 minutes. Both of my dogs were frightened. The smaller dog wanted me to pick her up. My other dog wanted nothing more than to just go home. They have never shown fear to a vehicle, especially a vehicle in the sky.

Its ascent left me feeling it is not ours. As it took off skyward, it did so keeping the "hull" square to the ground, travelling virtually in a direct vertical line. Its color also changed to an orange color. This craft was completely silent.

Saucer-shaped UFO Moves Across San Antonio Highway
UFO Depiction
Published: 8:01 AM 1/1/2014

San Antonio, Texas - 12-21-13

Shape: Disk - Duration: 20 seconds.

Saucer-shaped craft moving above highway.

I was driving home from picking up a meal for the family. I was driving on IH-37 South just prior to reaching Loop 410.

I noticed an object moving from right to left very slowly; the object was saucer-shaped with a dome on the center. The color of the sides was a pale yellow and the dome was a lighter color.

The object moved slowly and seemed parallel, then tilted to the left approximately 60 degrees and continued slowly. I kept sight of the object and it disappeared for approximately two seconds and reappeared further south approximately 500 ft. away. It also dropped elevation approximately 300 ft.

The object continued slowly at a parallel motion for three seconds, then disappeared again and I could not locate it.

I stopped on the side of road to locate for approximately 1 minute then proceeded home after I could not locate the object again.

Unknown Craft and Commercial Plane in near Collision over London
UFO Depiction
Published: 10:02 AM 10/16/2013

London, England - July 19, 2013

UK-based organization that reviews aircraft near collision incident recently reported about the subject involving a pilot who reported a near-miss with a UFO above London.

In a Daily Mirror report, the pilot thought that they were on a collision course with no time to react.

The captain of an A320 reported the incident on 19th of July 2013. The captain pilot says that he saw the object coming straight for their aircraft, flying apparently at similar altitude.

The object was bright silver in color made of metallic material in a cigar/rugby ball like in shape, according to the description of the pilot. He instinctually ducked and alerted his fist officer.

The pilot did not have time to say anything as the sighting happened so quickly, according to the report. Once the object passed through them, the captain asked the first officer if he had also seen the UFO, but unfortunately not because the first officer was looking down at a log book when the mysterious flying object passed.

An evaluation of the incident was carried out by the UK Airprox Board, a group composed of experts in aviation that meets every month to review near-miss reports.

According to the group’s report, the incident happened around 6:25 PM above Berkshire County, London. The radar at that time recorded an unknown in the area, but was later identified as a Tiger Moth aircraft travelling at a lower elevation.

The board also went to the local weather balloon stations to check if there were launches at that time in the area and found out there was none. Toy balloons were also ruled out as well as other kinds of balloons available commercially.

The immediate reaction of the captain pilot for what he thought an extreme danger situation could create an impression that the UFO was not just a balloon or just a reflection from another aircraft.

Therefore, the mysterious object still to be determined.
