UFO was Inches from Car, say Elderly Couple
UFO Depiction
Published: Jan 26, 2012

TWO Barnard Castle pensioners say a flying saucer hovered inches from their car as they drove home at night.

Bruce and Priscilla Wetherill, both 84, have described the brief encounter, which happened between Gainford and Barnard Castle, as “frightening.”

The pair say they saw something strange in the sky as they drove past a wooded area near Arlaw Banks.

Mrs Wetherill said: “We saw this thing heading towards us – it was coming right at us and was as low as the car and huge. It was very frightening.

“Bruce kept driving, but we both ducked down, expecting it to hit us. I thought, ‘This is it, we’ve had it’.”

The Wetherills said the UFO, which was shaped like a flying saucer, was dark on top but glowed underneath and made no sound.

At the last moment, it lifted up and narrowly missed the car, they said. Mr Wetherill said: “It was an amazing thing – it came so close to us that I thought it was going to crash on us.

“We were waiting for an explosion, but then it disappeared. It all took place in a split-second.”

The 84-year-old said the UFO disappeared into the sky.

“I’m a realist, but I know what I saw and it was unbelievable.

“If I lived to 200 I would never see anything like it again,” Mr Wetherill said.

Mrs Wetherill, who is also convinced about what she saw, said the UFO had steel-like tentacles hanging down. The couple said the flying saucer came so close that they expected to see scratches on the roof of their vehicle.

But when they investigated, there were none.

Mrs Wetherill said that since the encounter, she has been too scared to drive past the spot at night.

The couple said the incident happened two years ago but they wanted to come forward after a spate of recent UFO sightings in Teesdale, as reported in last week’s Teesdale Mercury.

UFO Dances With Airplane
UFO Depiction
Published: 1:37 AM 1/28/2012

"To this day, I do not know what we saw, but it is clear that it was under intelligent control and coincided, as to time and place, with what was seen by 70 people on the ground, and neither of us knew that the other had seen this stuff for 40 odd years" says retired Pan American World Airways Pilot, Captain Ralph Loewinger.

When I asked him if he believed in different levels and forms of the Supernatural and why he responded, "I am not sure at this point in my life. I will NOT discount it, however."

On October 3rd, 1967, Ralph was the copilot of PAA Flight 160, a Boeing 707 cargo ship out of New York headed to London.

This is a FIRST hand, eyewitness account from the pilot himself who today feels that "no other pilots care, many strange things have been reported across the bar." Today, there are a bountiful rising amount of informal looks into UFO and ET Phenomenon not just in Canada but other global spots as well.

They were approaching Yarmouth, Nova Scotia at approximately 33,000 feet when the strange occurrence began. The night was described by Ralph as "clear, moonless and the lights of the south coast were plainly in view." He was the first to observe a formation of lights that sat at eleven o'clock position and a bit high.

"It appeared to be another large transport, showing all lights, heading straight for us in a left bank which would take it across our bow. I announced to Captain Curt Olsen and flight engineer Mike Littlepage to 'watch this guy!'"

All eyes were on deck watching what became known as and referred to as 'The Lights.'

Both pilots went onto the control yokes to avoid collision. The lights hung at a 45 degree angle downslope left to right.

The pilots did not file a UFO report when asked if they had wanted to when talking with the Boston air traffic control center. Even though it was confirmed by the control center that there was no traffic near the plane the pilots decided to let this go to avoid filling out paperwork.

Ralph says that they should have "been closing in on this strange target if it was standing still, and Mike remembers the lights getting closer."

He also recalls bringing the Navigator and Third Pilot up from the gallery to point this out. Over the past forty plus years, details become grained and blurred but one thing remains a constant which is that night over Nova Scotia, many people in flight and on ground witnessed 'The Lights.'

Days later upon returning from his flight, Ralph was listening to a Canadian radio station while driving and the news announcer stated that "the RCMP had discontinued search operations for 'strange light formations reported falling into the sea near Yarmouth'."

What was certain was that this crew saw the light formation similarly reported at the same time on the ground at Shag Harbour.

I asked Ralph what he was doing these days and he told me, "I am retired living in the world's largest fly-in community near Daytona. I have a small airplane and ponder the heavens often -- and yes, I still wonder about what I saw.

Incidentally, the History Channel did a one hour show on this some years ago and I guess one could find it still." 'Deep Sea UFOs' aired on The History Channel January 23, 2006.

Did 'The Lights' AKA UFO dive into the Harbour disappearing on that cold, confusing night back in October of 1967?

Dives also have occurred to check the ocean floor bedding to see if anything was out of sorts. Unusual "Depressions on the Seabed" as if someone came in and swept up the floor neatly and smoothly at the Shag Harbor UFO Site, was revealed.

This leaves us with somewhat of our own 'impressions' that either we can believe, sit on that fence or completely disbelieve.

More Information Concerning the Real Time Abductees
UFO Depiction
Published: 1:11 AM 1/25/2012

written by Chis Holly

I became involved with the Real Time Abductee group about three years ago. Originally the group consisted of 12 people who in my opinion had what I considered Real Time Abduction events.

Real time means lost time abduction events that occurred while the people were fully awake going about the normal routine of their everyday life.

No sleep encounters, no floating through walls, no hypnosis involved just everyday people walking along the normal routine of their day when taken against their will by something unknown and overpowering.

The group was gathered over many years of talking to people and finding a dozen who had had encounters that were very similar. The events took place while they were busy living life, they all remembered the start of the event and being returned with little or no recall of what took place while they suffered the lost time.

All of the people returned ill and confused and often miles away from where they were when taken. Often it would be at distances impossible to reach within the time they were missing.

About three years ago I started to have communication with the 12 people I thought of as real time abduction cases. Three of the people lived far away from my location making it impossible to meet with them on a regular basis. That brought the group down to nine.

One of the nine could not accept what was happening to him and decided to remove himself from any contact with the others. He insisted his lost time abductions were being done by someone he knew who was drugging him. The fact he was covered with burns that would heal and reappear a few weeks later was not enough for him to consider it was something unknown.

He also could remember strange people in odd tight suits that covered them like a skin but still felt it was someone he knew. We agreed it best for him as well as for the others in the group for him to travel another road with what he was encountering. That brought the group down to eight.

I talked on and off with the eight abductees until about a year ago I decided to form a group where we could spend time talking together in person about what we had been dealing with most of our lives. I am one of the abductees by the way. It is the reason I do what I do and have devoted so much time and energy to this group.

We started out as eight. The next abductee to leave the group was a woman who had a fear of being taken again that was so over powering she would become hysterical whenever she heard a strange noise or saw any kind of light she could not immediately identify. Her life is a hell as her fear is ruling every moment of her day and night.

When she met with the group she became terrified that our being in a group would entice and invite us all to be taken again. She quickly left the group. We all understood her fear and felt awful for the control her abductions were having on her lifetime. That brought us to seven.

Another abductee carried yet another fear that was controlling her life. She has an extreme fear of being hypnotized. She fears that if someone does hypnotize her they will unlock places in her mind she does not want to recall or relive. I have to say that all the real time abductees have this same fear and all reject and warn others who have been abducted and have had their memory adjusted to be very careful about these things.

Our fear is that knowing we have been tampered with concerning our memory and knowing we have endured events we do not want to fully recall the last thing in the world we need is for a human to go where they do not understand and try to hypnotize us.

What if they destroyed our memory completely or harmed our brains or worse made us relive things so horrifying we may never get past fully recalling them. For us Hypnotism is a very dirty word. This abductee feared somehow being in the group an outsider would try to find her and hypnotize her possible without her permission. Our number seven abductee, however, could not get past that fear and did not trust I could keep her away from this horror. Her fear was so great I told her there was no point in torturing her any further and she left the group.

Once again the remaining abductees all understood. That brought us to the remaining six members.

The remaining six lived in an area that made it possible for them to be able to meet during the last year. They used their meeting together to discuss and decide what they thought was best to do with the information they gathered. It was by way of these meetings that it was decided I would write about certain things the group wanted to share.

I have not to date written in any of my articles about many obvious things we discovered as a group. We quickly realized that all but one of the group had light blue eyes. We all, including the original twelve members of the group, are of Irish decent. We do not know if that is common in all abductions or only with the real time cases. The reason for this is unknown but most likely it has to do with our biology.

Out of the twelve original people all but three were RH negative blood type. They also all had physical ailments they were dealing with that resulted from their abduction experiences.

The group is made up of people who are bright and score on the above average scale of the IQ test levels. One abductee has a recorded IQ around the 200 mark. She is very careful with her words and only says exactly what she wants to be known.

The group of six all has had ongoing lost time abduction events from their early childhoods that lasted through out their adult lives. The older the group members get the less frequent the events occur. Two older members of the group have not had an event happen for over ten years. They feel the events are now over for them.

However, one of the members who could not attend the abduction group meetings due to distance is in the mid-70s and had an event happen to her and her husband last year.

The group discovered a few odd things concerning their time together once they started to meet in person. The first thing that the group realized was that they all shared very similar views on the condition of the world at this time in history.

The group also found they all had the same fears and warnings for society which I wrote about in my article that discussed the devastation of mankind by way or our new addiction to technology. Quickly the group realized that they all shared the same fears and view of where our society was heading including our relationship with mankind and beings society considers unknown.

A more disturbing observation was that together in a group the six abductees could feel an absolute disdain for those that portray that they have had close encounters that in fact never did. The odd thing was that this strange uncomfortable feeling of negativity did not seem to come from the group as individuals.

In a way that is hard to express the feeling came only when the group was together and seemed to be implanted within the group with a sensation that is was being impressed on us to steer us in the direction of passing this information on to society.

I did write about this distaste in a past article but since we felt it was a message being presented through us instead of from us we decided to stay away from other impressions we were feeling on other subjects.

Strangely alone we may have been more easily pushed into thinking this was our own opinion but when together we seemed to gain strength and a higher level of awareness making decisions in mass a different experience then it would be singularly. Of course many minds are better than one however this experience was different.

It was more like one large brain that worked as one instead of six minds sorting out a single problem. It was an odd event for all concerned.

Due to the fact we realized together we were becoming something strange and strong we decided during our last visit this fall to end our meetings and break the sense of becoming joined in a way we were not comfortable with.

During our time together we found that we all had witnessed at least once in our lifetimes a clear sighting of a large UFO. Each member of the group with slight differences did see a large craft of oval or cigar shape. Each one described the crafts as gun metal in color with assorted neon colored lights.

Each abductee had also had experiences with strange Orbs, all red, orange or white- during their lifetimes.

We also found our recall of the start of our lost time abduction events were similar. The events would start with either a light or ray and the feeling of dread or sickness overcoming the abductee. Sometimes the dread would hit first and a bright light would be seen before things went black. Most all the events ended with simply finding you are awake and standing, walking or sitting somewhere you did not at first know. The first sensation felt was of nausea. Vomiting was frequently uncontrollable followed by extreme weakness. This added to the difficulty of trying to get you home or to safety for all the abductees.

Recall was different for each abductee. A few had no recall at all; others had flashes of what had happened to them. Mostly the recall consisted of being in the presence of beings that were human like but covered in what seemed to be a skin type suit. Details were fleeting and different.

All agreed the recall of the unknown experience did include human like beings that were not human. Three of the abductees felt that other humans were around during the event however they were not sure if they were part of the abductors or other humans who had been taken.

The abductee group all agreed fully that they did not sense any type of concern or emotion at all from their abductors. The idea that the beings who were taking us were not 100% living crossed all the abductees’ minds. The idea that the creatures handling us were more of a machine or part machine seemed a logical explanation why we felt those taking us was nonliving.

Of course it was not impossible that the form of the beings we were dealing with were suited in a covering making it impossible for us to ever know what they really looked like was also very logical. I know that I often thought that those visiting us were more of light and less of material substance.

Using a suit to give them form in order to deal with our heavy biological forms is also a possibility. I wish the groups recall in this area was more detailed however with regret it is not.

Each Real Time Abductee had physical problems as a result of their abduction experiences. The problems consist of rashes, burns, skin changes, internal changes, a growing sensitivity to the sun and many foods they once loved or use to eat. They also became ill easily and suffered from bouts of exhaustion and fever without explanation.

The physical problems never leave and cannot be explained by the medical specialist they all have seen trying to seek help. The abductees in this group have all taken extreme measures to protect from future abductions including never being alone especially in a place that would make it easy for them to be taken. They stay away from dark areas, keep the places they work and live in fully lit and secure.

They all have dogs and keep others around them at all times. Those who are involved in taking people in the way these people have been taken tend to shy away from large groups, bright lights and places they could be easily viewed or captured during an abduction.

Our last meeting dissolved our meetings as each member realized that we could become harmful to each other or others in our lives if we continued to join as one in our talks together. Not one of the members of this group wants to add to or help in any way the agenda of those who have taken them.

The group parted knowing they were doing the right thing.

As I have stated before my part of and experience with the Real Time Abductees has been a life changing event. Writing about them has been stressful and difficult.

I will be writing my final article about this group shortly. I do hope my articles on this subject have someway somehow helped others like the people in this group who have gone it alone. I also hope it has given new insight to this subject to those who understand that abduction occurs and it is a painful difficult ordeal for those involved and their families.

Be careful of your surrounding and do not take chances by making dangerous decisions. You never know who will be next to find they are the ones eye to eye with the dead eyes of the unknown.

Silent Running: 'Black Triangle' Sightings on the Rise
UFO Depiction
By Leonard David-Senior Space Writer

They have become legendary in UFO circles. Huge, silent-running “Flying Triangles” have been seen by ground observers creeping through the sky low and slow near cities and quietly cruising over highways.

The National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS), has catalogued the Triangle sightings, sifting through and combining databases to take a hard look at the mystery craft.

Based in Las Vegas, Nevada, NIDS is a privately funded science institute with a strong research focusing on aerial phenomena.The results of their study have just been released and lead to some unnerving, still puzzling conclusions.

The study points out: “The United States is currently experiencing a wave of Flying Triangle sightings that may have intensified in the 1990s, especially towards the latter part of the 1990s.

The wave continues. The Flying Triangles are being openly deployed over and near population centers, including in the vicinity of major Interstate Highways.”

Covert operations?

A key NIDS conclusion is that the actions of these triangular craft do not conform to previous patterns of covert deployment of unacknowledged aircraft. Furthermore, “neither the agenda nor the origin of the Flying Triangles are currently known.”

The years 1990-2004 have seen an intense wave of Flying Triangle aircraft, the study observes. Sifting through reports by hundreds of eyewitnesses, the NIDS assessment states that the behavior of the vehicles “does not appear consistent with the covert deployment of an advanced DoD [U.S. Department of the Defense] aircraft.”

Rather, it is consistent with (a) the routine and open deployment of an unacknowledged advanced DoD aircraft or (b) the routine and open deployment of an aircraft owned and operated by non-DoD personnel, suggests the NIDS study.

“The implications of the latter possibility are disturbing, especially during the post 9/11 era when the United States airspace is extremely heavily guarded and monitored,” the NIDS study explains.

“In support of option (a), there is much greater need for surveillance in the United States in the post 9/11 era and it is certainly conceivable that deployment of low altitude surveillance platforms is routine and open.”

Open, even brazen

According to Colm Kelleher, NIDS Administrator, the newly completed quasi “meta-analysis” of Flying Triangles melds three major U.S. databases: NIDS, the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) and data collected by independent researcher, Larry Hatch, the creator and owner of one of the largest and most comprehensive UFO databases in the world. Kelleher said, the analysis indicates that deployment of Flying Triangles is open, not covert, and involves low-flying, brightly lit aircraft routinely deployed over populated areas including cities and Interstate highways.

“However, I cannot say whether these are U.S. Air Force aircraft. We simply don't know,” Kelleher told SPACE.com . “But it does not appear to be consistent with the covert patterns of deployment we saw with the F-117 and B-2 prior to their acknowledgement. This is open, even brazen,” he stated.

Stealth aircraft

For example, a perfunctory look at the how past DoD stealth aircraft programs were kept from public eye -- although eventually came to light -- is different from the patterns for the Flying Triangles. Prior to acknowledgement of the F-117 and B-2 aircraft, only rare night time sightings occurred in the sparsely populated sections of Nevada, California and a few other states. Flying at low altitude over populated areas was rarely reported for the F-117 or B-2.

“In contrast, the Flying Triangle deployment, especially during the 1990s, appears more consistent with the open and public operation of these aircraft,” the study explains. The trend of open deployment of the Flying Triangles is not consistent with secret operation of an advanced DoD aircraft.

No attempt to hide

The database-driven study of the Flying Triangle shows the following patterns:

-- Sightings take place near cities and on Interstate highways

-- They are seen at low altitude in plain sight of eyewitnesses

-- They fly at extremely low speed or hover in plain sight of eyewitnesses

-- The vehicles sometime fly with easily noticeable bright lights -- either blinding white lights, or have “bright disco lights” that usually flash combinations of red, green or blue.

The NIDS study emphasizes that the flying of these vehicles may be more in harmony with an attempt to display or to be noticed. There appears to be little or no attempt to hide. That finding has led to a modification of an earlier NIDS hypothesis that the Triangles are covertly deployed DoD aircraft.

While it is too early to dismiss the previously published NIDS correlation between Triangle sightings and a subset of U.S. Air Force Bases, the apparent association with centers of population may point away from a covert program.

“Rather, it is consistent with routine and open deployment of an advanced aircraft,” the NIDS study concludes.

Clustered on both coasts

During the ensuing years (2000-2004), NIDS received hundreds of reports from people in the United States and Canada reporting large triangular aircraft, often silent and often flying at very low altitude and at low air speed. In many cases, the objects were brightly lit. NIDS files also include reports of Flying Triangles from remote areas. In mid 2004, NIDS reviewed its database that contains the locations of the Triangle sightings in the United States. The sightings of Triangles appear primarily adjacent to population centers and along Interstate Highways, with sightings clustered on both coasts.

NIDS has amassed almost 400 separate sightings of triangular/boomerang/wedge-shaped objects. Many of these craft are brightly lit, low flying, and traveling at unexpectedly low air speeds. In earlier reports, NIDS outlined a tentative correlation between reported sightings of Triangles and the locations of Air Mobility Command and Air Force Materiel Command bases in the United States.

Like a Star Trek "uncloaking"

According to ground observers, the features of a Black Triangle are indeed impressive. For example, the NIDS study includes the observation of a Port Washington Wisconsin person who encountered a large object that flew over her home at 500 feet altitude in October 1998. Her eyeing of the clear starry night was interrupted as the craft came into her field of view.

“Suddenly this monstrosity came out of the ‘blue’, just like a Star Trek 'uncloaking', no kidding…so quiet I couldn’t believe it and so huge…no more than 500 feet or so up, and big enough to take up my field of sky vision,” she reported.

Crude mathematics, the witness recounted, would make the vessel about 200 feet wide and 250 feet long.

Two camps

In wrapping up its look at the burgeoning number of Flying Triangle sightings in the United States, NIDS also took into account the work of writers and researchers delving into the topic both in the United States and abroad.

Those analyses fall into two camps: The Triangles are human-made, while the other says they are not.

“In 2004 it is extremely difficult to distinguish between these two possibilities since the former option overlaps heavily with legitimate national security concerns, while in the absence of much more physical evidence, the latter option is not testable,” the NIDS assessment concludes.

UFO Sightings as Fighter Jets Fly Low over North Kent
UFO Depiction
Published: 12:20 PM 1/24/2012

by Rachel Hovenden, rhovenden@thekmgroup.co.uk

People have reported seeing UFOs in the sky after hearing fighter jets flying above north Kent at the weekend.

People across Gravesend and Dartford reported hearing the low-flying fighter jets on Saturday evening.

Some took to a UFO sighting website to report bright lights being chased by fighter jets.

Adrian and Jessica, from Istead Rise, posted on the site: "We looked out on the patio toward the sky and saw a reddy orange shaped object (which was very low in the sky) and was an oval shape but quite large.

"It was moving in an unusual pattern (unlike conventional aircraft) and did a tight abrupt circle before shooting off in such a fast fashion that the two jets that appeared were too late to catch up with it."

Matt, from Dartford, also posted, saying: "I see LOTS around 50 [sic.] what appeared to be bright lights / stars, at first glance in the sky.

"Upon closer inspection, they appeared to be moving, then a loud rumbling noise of fighter jets whooshed past very very low.... I heard a few loud bangs, it is all very eerie and quite strange."

And people took to our Facebook page to complain about the noise.

Clare Marvellarsely Mad Knowles wrote: "What was all that noise about! Low flying aircrafts freaked us all out!"

An as yet unconfirmed but simpler explanation is that it was an RAF training exercise in preparation for the Olympics.

UFO Incident - Gosford, Australia - 1994
UFO Depiction
Published: 2:57 AM 1/7/2012

Gosford, Central Coast Australia, 1994

On early Christmas morning near the city of Gosford, Australia, the first sighting occurred. According to testimony from former Air Traffic Controller Lindsay Carter, it was a quiet morning as he headed north from Sydney.

Peering out his front windshield, Carter saw about a half-mile away, a silver, metallic object in the sky. The object was crossing from South to North.

Another eyewitness to the object was housewife June O'Hare, who saw the UFO move over the water. The object was surrounded by lights.

By New Year's Eve, numerous calls were made to local authorities reporting a UFO, according to Sgt. Bob Wenning. All of the callers reported a huge, ball-shaped object with bright lights on the bottom. Witnesses observed the UFO sucking up water from the lake.

Other witnesses claimed to have watched the unknown object move over the waters for as long as 15 minutes. They stated that they had never seen anything that looked like what they saw that day.

Eyewitness Margaret Howe watched the same object. She reported lights coming up out of the water, and the object moving over the water. She could hear the sound of rushing water as it was being sucked into the mysterious craft. After a moment or two, the UFO returned the object to the lake.

The "Weekly Sun" newspaper reported the incident. The article spawned numerous callers to phone the newspaper, saying that they too, had seen the UFO. The group of callers represented a vast cross section of the citizenry; lawyers, policemen, teachers, and more.

Some of the witnesses described several beams of light emitted from the craft's bottom to the water, with the surface of the water highly disturbed. Other callers reported being awakened by a loud sound, with their pets acting strangely. The police were baffled by the reports.

UFO researcher Moira McGhee launched an investigation with eyewitness reports, and calls to any and all possible launching sites for airplanes, helicopters, or any flying craft. These inquiries brought no evidence as to the origin of the UFO.

The appearance of a UFO moving over the waters near Gosford in 1994 has never been explained.
