Unknown Object Photographed over Troutdale, Oregon
Published: 10:43 AM 3/2/2013

Troutdale, Oregon - 11-01-10

Eric was driving a production truck eastbound on I-84 to a commercial shoot. He noticed waterfalls ahead and stretched his arm toward the open passenger window to get a shot.

This picture was taken before Exit 30 on I-84 at the waterfall above Wahkeena Rearing Lake.

He put the camera away until later that day at the hotel, noticed the object and what looks like a vapor trail behind it while looking through the pictures on the camera.

The card remained in the camera until February 3, 2011. He downloaded it to the laptop and stared at it until now.

The idea was to take a picture of a waterfall, not of something odd in the sky. This, whatever this is, is what was on that frame.

Camera - Nikon COOLPIX S630

Woman Motorist Encounters Octagon-shaped UFO in Texas
UFO Depiction
Published: 11:13 AM 3/1/2013

Milano, Texas - 12-20-13

I saw an octagon shaped bright grayish ship in sky, near Cameron, Texas on highway 36. Blinking. Fast. Scary

I must preface, I’m somewhat nervous to have to explain something of this nature. Never in a million years would I have thought it remotely possible in reality...

Last night my son and I were driving on Hwy 36 around 11:30 on our way to my mother’s house in Copperas Cove, TX. In the distance we noticed a very bright flashing light. My first thought was that it could be a plane, helicopter or a signal tower with unusually bright lights.

We continued to watch it when suddenly it was RIGHT ON ABOVE of our SUV! There are few words that will effectively relay to anyone that wasn’t there just how large and utterly surreal looking this thing was.

It was shaped like an octagon with flashing lights on all sides. It looked like a building floating in the sky. It had depth/structure to it that’s hard to put into context.

I was in shocked and as a mother I became fearful this thing could be a potential threat considering how close it was.

So I stepped on the gas to get away from it. I was driving way over the speed limit and not looking back when it occurred to us to take a picture or video.

My son was in the back filming what was left of it at that point. Both my son and I were just floored by what was happening.

I’m extremely disappointed we didn’t think soon and capture the object in solid form. When we first saw the object it was about 400 meters above us, close enough for us to realize its enormous size, hexagonal shape, and its grey/concrete color.

By the time my son had pulled out a camera and moved to the back of the vehicle to film, it appeared to have distanced itself substantially from us, at least a few miles away.

Explanations Arise for Yorkville UFO Sighting
UFO Depiction
Published: 10:31 AM 3/2/2013

By Steve Lord slord@stmedianetwork.com

Depending on how you look at it, there is either an easy answer or more complications to the UFO sighting by a Bristol Township man last weekend.

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, reported that he, his wife and his daughter sighted an unidentified flying object from their home just before 8 p.m. Saturday. The family lives near the Fox River north of Yorkville.

They said they saw two lights moving east northeast, with colors ranging from red, orange, yellow and pink.

The lights “were together either one in front of the other or side by side and going at a pretty good clip and in the eastern sky,” he said.

The man reported what he saw to the Mutual UFO Network, or MUFON, which included it on their website. After the original story ran in The Beacon-News, another area resident, also wishing to remain anonymous, said he might have an explanation.

In an e-mail, he said his family set off two lanterns in Yorkville “that night, around that time, in that area.”

“They were a tribute to my deceased dad and son for my mom’s 70th birthday party,” the man wrote. He said he wished to remain anonymous because he was unsure if what he did was legal.

The first man admitted the lights looked like they could be lanterns, but he had discarded that explanation originally because there seemed to be almost no wind Saturday — not enough to carry a lantern in the manner he witnessed.

“I’m just glad to get an explanation,” he said.

But on Wednesday, another possible explanation surfaced. Hank Kobulnicky of Oswego, a seasoned commercial airline pilot, said he was “100 percent positive” the sighting was man-made space junk re-entering the atmosphere.

“In my many years of night flight I have seen countless small ones and twos re-enter with the colors noted by the viewers in your feature,” Kobulnicky wrote in an e-mail.

“Of course the parts flew in formation in their path to destruction.”

The sighting remains listed on MUFON’s website, www.mufon.com, and there is a claim from MUFON that someone has a video of the sighting. But no one has been able to open the video file to see it.

Lights in Triangle Shape Seen over Iowa
UFO Depiction
Published: 4:21 PM 2/28/2013

Iowa - 02-10-13

My son-in-law went outside the back door of his house to talk to his wife and a friend. While standing there, he noticed nothing, no sounds, nothing.

Then he looked up and saw these 3 lights in a triangle; two red and one green.

He watched it for a few minutes, but it did nothing, just sat there in the sky. He took out his cell and took a picture. He did not tell anyone except his wife.

Today, we were having a family dinner and he pulled out the phone and said, "look at this."

We all looked at the picture and thought what the heck. I had him send it to my email address so I could make the picture bigger. When you make the picture bigger, it actually looks like 4 circular objects with a dozen lights.

The son-in-law is really not into UFOs, so he did not do anything more than just take the picture and forget about it. It resembles a lot of the pictures I have seen on the TV shows.

Archived Case of the Week

The Woodland Hills UFO
by Tracy J. Crockett
UFO On December 15th, 2005, A friend and I had the following UFO sighting. At 3:30 am, on this morning, with me at the wheel, my friend and I went on a little drive to see the UFO activity in Utah Valley. We focused our attention mainly on two areas.

1-The night sky above Spanish Fork City, Utah.

2-The Spanish Fork City Airport.

Both of us were absolutely astounded, to say the least as we approached Spanish Fork City from the north when we observed one of the biggest UFOs that I've ever seen. The diamond-shaped UFO was floating slowly, about 300 feet above this city, moving northbound.

We were fascinated with the camouflaging measures, used by this sinister looking spaceship. Reproduced into this massive UFO's outer shell, were the lights (yes they were HIGH INTENSITY DISCHARGE LAMPS) of the city of "Woodland Hills" which is a few miles south of Sp.Fk.

Looking directly at this UFO, one may very well be inclined to believe that they are merely looking at some boring city lights, which we are all so familiar with. This, I believe, is exactly what the Aliens are counting on. In my opinion, it is an absolutely ingenious camouflaging measure.

As I gazed wide-eyed and open-mouthed at this colossal craft which I estimated to be about three city-blocks wide and two blocks tall (please excuse my inarticulate and unscientific terminology), I had an inexplicable and conclusive feeling that I was looking at an "airborne Alien nursery!"

Both of us were also very intrigued by the appearance of two "EYES," human looking in every way about six-feet in diameter which were placed into the sides of the UFO's outer shell. The technology which the spaceship exhibited in placing so many lights of various sizes which matched all of the lights of Woodland Hills, revealed a high degree of intelligence, in my opinion, of those who possessed and piloted it!

At the Spanish Fork Airport at 5:30 am, as we sat parked, we observed a strange sight. Rolling slowly down the runway, escorted by a low-flying, egg-shaped UFO, was some type of wheeled unit which appeared to be some type of "star projector." It was close in size to a typical "potato chip" truck. An astounding number of glistening lights, all of which had the appearance of "stars," covered this mysterious contraption.

The "projector" looked to be rolling down the runway of the airport. I knew, however, that it could be somewhere else, perhaps far beyond our locale. I have been aware now, for some time, that the Aliens have the technology to mask the precise locations of their hardware and activities, by making their appearance seem always to be "distant" as one approaches those areas.

Our presence did not go unnoticed by the "Aliens" as we quickly perceived that six UFOs of various sizes were gradually moving towards us using the HIDLs around us as "cover." After aligning the lights of their ships, to the HIDLs, I believe, they can then sneak up on their targets.

Perched menacingly atop a nearby building behind the airport parking lot where we sat in our car, we observed an egg-shaped UFO, about 20 feet-wide and 10 feet-tall creeping up on us. Suddenly (I suspect in an effort to distract us from viewing the "star projector"), its right light got brighter and bigger and split into four quarters; two blue and two red, in color. The red quarters then shifted places with the two blue quarters.

A white light then appeared in the midst of the two red quarters of light, about the size of a silver dollar, which continued to gradually grow in size.

Anticipating that something big was about to happen, I sarcastically said to my friend beside me "I'll bet a helicopter comes out of it; I was wrong! The white light continued growing in size as it slowly moved towards us.

We watched in absolute awe and suspense as it was quickly transformed into a small, white airplane with two red ipinstripes on it!(something like a small cessna).

Traveling at a speed of what appeared to be only ten m.p.h., it swooped slowly down to land... shining a bright spotlight momentarily at us, as it proceeded to taxi down the runway to a hangar behind the airports offices.

The planes appearance took us back a bit. I felt unhesitatingly obliged to turn the car's ignition key and punch my foot to the accelerator! At that moment my greatest priority was to rush immediately away from the strangeness of what we had just witnessed!

For the next two hours, we drove around the area - dazed and somewhat confused - wondering to ourselves what might happen next. When we began to feel our bodies experiencing a sudden, extremely uncomfortable fever, I began to be suspicious, that perhaps a small Alien probe was traveling with us, either above or beneath the car which was perhaps emitting some type of radiation.

Stopping the car, I got out and knelt down to look under it. Finding nothing, I walked around the car for a full inspection, as I did, I noticed that one of the "high pressure sodium vapor lights" which was directly behind the local "solid waste transfer station" about 100 yards away, was emitting, or shooting a great many, large, bright orange sparks directly towards us!

We quickly fled the area, placing ourselves well out of range of what I perceived to be some type of weapon intended to dissuade those unwelcome and pesky humans who were in the area, from hanging around and making further observations of the Aliens ongoing activities!

At 7:30 am, as we made our way home, I casually looked back towards Spanish Fork, and was amazed to see two "black helicopters" attending to a slow moving cloud, shaped precisely like the massive UFO which we had been observing with interest throughout the night! It crept slowly away, at the same speed as all of the clouds around it, until it rose up gracefully above the nearby mountains and disappeared.
