Again, we have a decent video with little or no details. Some things we know and others we can deduce.

It seems to me that daylight and night footage has been interposed. The original video is quite shaky, but we managed to clear it up some.

The video has been edited by www.ufocasebook.com. The full length, unedited video can be seen at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxRHpLrGV_o.

Check it out and see what you think.

Back in the Day - June 4, 1967: UFOs Spotted over West Milford
UFO Depiction
Published: 1:39 PM 6/4/2012


"Is it just spring madness or are those unidentifiable somethings up in the sky a nameable, ponderable phenomenon that maybe we'd all best learn a little bit more about?" asked Suburban Trends writer Ann Marie Sullivan in a story about more possible spaceships seen flying over the area.

She reported that a few days before, Mrs. Charles Miller, a resident of La Rue Road near the infamous Clinton Road in West Milford, "saw what at first she thought was a hyperactive twinkling star up in the sky."

"Driving from her home, south to Butler, she remarked to her passengers about the strange 'dipping' light that hung over the mountains to the north. All three women – Mrs. Miller, her mother and her neighbor – saw it," Sullivan reported.

"It changed colors," Mrs. Miller said. "It was something like those Christmas lights that fade from red to greenish blue. Then this object in the sky became white."

As Mrs. Miller drove by Smoke Rise in Kinnelon, she said that the light in the sky looked bigger, and glowed like a halo. Then a smaller light suddenly shot out from the main light, hovered for a bit, and shot right back into the main light.

When Mrs. Miller brought her mother to her house near Butler, other family members spotted the UFO.

Mrs. Miller's sister, Alice Carol Whritenour, said she had also recently had a UFO sighting along with several of her co-workers.

She spotted a "bowl of light" from their vantage point at the bottom of Riverdale Hill on Route 23. The shiny orb was moving in a northerly direction, toward Butler and West Milford.

Whritenour further described the object as looking like a "sunburst clock" that sat still in the sky for about 20 minutes before moving away.

Yet another UFO was seen in the Newfoundland area by Mrs. Phillip Harriet, also of La Rue Road, who saw an object moving north in the sky. She described it as a "bobbing red light."

And at night during Memorial Day, "a number of motorists reported seeing an 'aurora borealis' in the skies about 10 p.m. in the star-studded skies over Newfoundland, going north on Route 23," Sullivan reported.

All the UFOs in the area were getting to be a nuisance.

The Ringwood Borough Council introduced an ordinance to ban parking on Westbrook Road, a favorite parking place for UFO watchers to try to see one of the UFOs that seemingly frequented the area around the Wanaque Reservoir.

"At the time, Ringwood Councilman Lawrence Mark said his town must be the first municipality to pass a law on UFOs," Sullivan reported. "He's probably right, but West Milford may be next!"

USO Event at Pacifica, California, March 2012
UFO Depiction
Published: 5:28 AM 6/16/2012

Pacifica, California - 03-14-12

This event was observed by a large group of witnesses including a highly credible co-worker that wishes to remain anonymous.

While driving the coastal highway near the town of Pacifica, this individual observed two very large, glowing objects in the ocean and roughly ¾ mile from the coastline.

The evening sky, at approximately 6:30 PM, was 100% overcast with no direct sunlight anywhere in sight. The glowing objects appeared as sharp ovals from this distance.

But it was clear that the actual shapes were discs and were submerged in the ocean at an unknown depth. A group of witnesses developed as vehicles stopped to watch the activity.

The observers shared their thoughts, and agreed that the two objects were in fact submerged, and moving with indistinct patterns, but not in a way that resembled a worldly vehicle such as a submarine.

The group also concluded that sunlight could not be the cause because there were no breaks in the dense cloud cover.

Furthermore, the lights continued to project into the late evening until about 9 PM, well past sundown.

At some juncture during the event, a passing ship (perhaps a Coast Guard vessel) approached the objects in an attempt to investigate.

The ship then quickly veered away from the objects in an apparent evasive maneuver to avoid confrontation.

At this juncture, most of the witnesses were in fear of their safety and left the scene.

Triangle UFO Seen over Cherry, Minnesota
UFO Depiction
Published: 3:24 PM 6/9/2012

Cherry, Minnesota - 06-01-12

Shape: Triangle - Duration: 5 seconds

I saw a silver, triangle-shaped craft above my car that sparkled from the rear and then disappeared.

Heading West on Hwy 37, approximately 10 miles due East of Hibbing, a silver, multi-sided triangle (like a spire) appeared above my vehicle and was visible through the top edge of the windshield, around a mile high.

It looked to be about the size of a large fighter jet.

There was clean, complete edging on the craft; it had no wings, tail, or any such things like a typical aircraft.

Suddenly, a blue and red sparkle came out of the rear, and the craft disappeared in a flash, also heading West.

My first thought was nothing mankind has created could travel this rapidly, as I had a full and unobstructed view of the horizon.

My second thought was that since it was gone in an instant, perhaps it entered another dimension.

Unknown Object Captured on Photo over New Zealand Mountain
Published: 1:41 PM 6/11/2012

New Zealand - 11-23-10

My friend took this photo about 2 years ago (11-23-10); at the time he was down south on holiday when he decided to take a panoramic photo of Lake Hawea, which is just outside of Wanaka.

It was not until he got home and downloaded it onto his computer that he noticed this object (top right).

He had not seen it at the time he took the photograph. This was the last photo in a series of shots and it was taken at 1000th of a second.

The object can be seen flying just above the mountain top on the right hand side of the photo. Looking closer at this image, it appears as though the bottom part of it is glowing orange.

Camera - Canon PowerShot G9

Archived Case of the Week

Cordell Hull saw Aliens in Glass Containers
Cordell Hull
Published: 6:13 AM 4/11/2001

William E. Jones writes, "I thought your readers should be aware of the Cordell Hull story that alien artifacts were in our hands in 1939."

In early December of 1999, the Center of UFO Studies received a letter from the daughter of the Reverend Turner Hamilton Holt:

"Today I want to share some knowledge that has been, by request, kept secret in our family since sometime in World War II. This concerns something my father was shown by his cousin Cordell Hull, the Secretary of State under Franklin Roosevelt.

"Snip, my father, who was young, brilliant, and sound of mind, told us this story because he didn't want the information to be lost.

One day when my father was in D.C,. Cordell swore him to secrecy and took him to a sub-basement in the U.S. Capitol building, and showed him an amazing sight:

(1) Four large glass jars holding 4 creatures unknown to my father or Cordell [and],

(2) A wrecked round craft of some kind nearby.

"My father wanted my sister and I to make this information known long after he and Cordell were dead, because he felt it was a very important bit of information.

We have researched your group {MUFON} and feel it is the most reliable group in the country. We hope that you will research and search this information.

The jars with creatures in formaldehyde and the wrecked craft are somewhere! "Cordell said they were afraid they would start a panic if the public found out about it."

Sincerely, Lucile Andrew, Ashland, Ohio.

Cordell Hull was one of the greatest statesmen of the 20th Century with absolutely no apparent reason to tell this story unless it was true, especially at a time when stories of flying saucers and their alien drivers had not yet become part of our culture.

Depiction of Aliens Hull was elected U.S. Senator 1931-1937, as chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and became the Secretary of State under President Franklin D. Roosevelt in March 1933, the longest in American history until 1944, when he resigned because of ill health.

He was also offered the Vice Presidency and in 1945, Cordell Hull won the 1945 Nobel Prize for Peace.

Reverend Holt and Hull were both born in Pickett County and were cousins and friends. Holt attained a Doctor in Theology degree from Ashland Theological Seminary, and was a minister at the Shenandoah Christian Church in Greenwich, Ohio.

He was a community leader, and wrote a book entitled Life's Convictions. He married Vina May Clark and they had three daughters. Two of the daughters claim they had been told about the creatures by their father. Lucile's original letter essentially tells the story as her father told it to her when she was a teenager.

Unfortunately, Lucile said that she was too young to really pay much attention to what her father told her but Allene, the mother of Eloise, the co-author of this story was told the same story as her sister.

Both sisters assured us that they remember the stories independently. Reverend Holt described the entities in the glass jars as "creatures, a term common for his day..." He never referred to them as "aliens" or "extraterrestrials." He never said where they came from.

Lucile stated that his experience happened in the "late 1930s," probably 1939. The material that was nearby the less than four feet tall creatures was described as "silver metallic."

She also remembers him referring to the material as being a "vehicle" that appeared to have been taken apart and was "in pieces."

He said the color of this material wasn't a color that he had seen before, but for the lack of a better word he used "silver." Reverend Holt was not the sort of person to make up such a wild story and, the sisters feel that by telling the story they are following their father's wishes.

Barbara A. Wolamin, "the curator U.S. Capitol building," chuckled a bit after being told the story. She said, "She had never heard about these creatures being stored at the Capitol, but she did confirm there was a sub-basement that was divided into storage rooms back then.

She said that the building had been significantly changed over the years, so in a small way, part of Reverend Holt's story checked out. After Cordell Hull left government service he wrote his memoirs in a two-volume book set.

No reference to this story appeared in these pages, in his papers in the Library of Congress.

Numerous experts and libraries were contacted and there has been no confirmation for the story. If four alien bodies and other world technology were retrieved in 1939, what would that do to our interpretation of the U.S.

Government's involvement in UFO research? One would assume prior knowledge would have made the government ready for an event like Roswell and that the Roswell retrieval was more efficient because of that.

This is a story that truly deserves further investigation.
