Cypress Family Reports Close Encounter with UFO
UFO Depiction
Published: 6:37 PM 7/5/2013

Did Fourth of July fireworks attract the attention of some out-of-this world friends in Cypress? One family reports a close encounter with a UFO sighting following some Independence Day festivities.

From Houston to Harper and all points in between, the skies above Texas are a great place to eyewitness UFO events each week. NEWS 92 FM has scoured the files of the Mutual UFO Network to bring you the following dispatches:


Around midnight Friday, a family reports observing a bright green UFO flying north in Cypress. But, unlike the glowing embers and sparks of the fireworks they were watching, this light continued to travel closer to the home, turning red in color.

“After a few seconds of watching it, the object turned neon blue, and split into [two] objects,” the eyewitness reported. “It only lasted for a few seconds before it returned into one big green and red object.”

Once over the house, the family retreated indoors. When they returned outside, the family said they begin to hear a piercing noice that increased in intensity after observing the object at a distance from the home. Once again, the family retreated indoors.

“Nobody (sic) of the people that experienced it really believed in aliens, but we are firm believers. now,” the respondent wrote.


Two eyewitnesses observed three separate UFOs above their home in Galveston around 10 p.m. on June 30. The couple described the objects as similar to a hot air balloon with “bright, flame-like flickering, intensely red lights in the center.”

As one UFO traveled quickly inland, becoming larger and more dim as it traveled, a second appeared brighter while traveling in the same direction. A third ascended upward and disappeared in the southwest sky. No military exercises or reports of the sightings were reported to the local Air National Guard or Coast Guard, according to the report.


An eyewitness who was outside smoking in the early morning hours of July 1 reports seeing a swift-moving object in the skies above North Houston. The UFO burned white and blinked as it streaked in a southwestern direction. “The light was blinking on/ off with a long pause in between. The object seemed to be pulsating,” the eyewitness writes. “This was not an aircraft, nor a meteorite.”


A couple traveling in between Highways 117 and 170 on Route 377 reported seeing three 3 yellow-orange lights dash across the sky, one after the other.

The sighting happened around 11 p.m. July 4. The respondent and his girlfriend observed as they broke form and began flying in a triangular formation, before disappearing from sight.

Harper An eyewitness in the midst of a training exercise reports seeing a star-like object swirling in the sky in the early morning hours of June 27th.

“After [two] track formation movements the light stopped and disappeared,” he writes. “Approximately [five] minutes later it appeared again and completed a race track formation again and disappeared more quickly that (sic) the first time.”

1961 - Cousins Alien Abduction in Exeter, New Hampshire
UFO Depiction
Published: 11:56 AM 6/20/2013

Exeter, New Hampshire 08-15-61

This was around 1961 in North Hampton, New Hampshire. I was with my cousin walking towards my aunt’s house (an old schoolhouse across the street from a cemetery.)

We were at the edge of the driveway, it was dusk, we looked up and saw a grey, lead metallic-colored disc-shaped object right over our heads.

Next thing we were walking into the house and had lost an hour in time. I don’t know how I even knew this.

Years later I saw my cousin (we had lost contact for 30-something years) and reminded her of the event. She remembered it, but not me being there with her.

She said it happened several times to her, but not with me. I remember reading the Barney and Betty Hill account in Life Magazine in later years that took place in New Hampshire, close to my encounter.

I used to stay at my aunt's when I was young. I used to have nightmares every night and my aunt and uncle would tell me I was screaming. I said it was coming to get me.

I'm not sure what this means, but as a child I used to hear a pulsating noise coming to my window at night, and I would hide under the covers until the noise would fade away.

If it was real the whole neighborhood would have been up and outside. My brother said he saw a UFO coming in his window in the next bedroom, but he doesn't remember any of it today.

I still remember it because it happened on occasion in the house I grew up in. I used to get really bad nosebleeds, too. I’ve always felt I may have been abducted.

My next door neighbor used to tell my mom said she saw UFOs in the sky. Anyhow, every so often I think about it and when I see shows on TV it brings me back.

I think I’ve read every book about UFOs and sometimes wish I didn't know anything about them.

But the fact remains that I did see that one in New Hampshire close up and will never forget what it looked like or how it affected me.

Okay, so I’m rambling. I am watching Alien mysteries and it made me come here and unload some memories.

British Astronomers Set up Extraterrestrial Search Network
Published: 6:33 PM 7/5/2013

Agence France-Presse

Paris: British astronomers have set up an experts' network to promote the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, the Royal Astronomical Society said today.

The starter group comprises academics from 11 British institutions, who will pore over data from radio telescopes and swap ideas such as how to detect any signals from another civilisation and then interpret them, it said.

Named the UK SETI Research Network - UKSRN - the organisation has the Astronomer Royal, Martin Rees, previously president of the Royal Society, Britain's de-facto academy of sciences, as its patron.

UKSRN presented its work at the Royal Astronomical Society's annual conference in Edinburgh on Friday, a press release said.

Astronomers at the SETI Institute in the United States have been looking for signs of intelligent life beyond our Solar System since 1984.

No signal has been found, but interest in the quest remains strong, bolstered by the detection of planets orbiting distant stars and the falling cost of monitoring background noise from deep space.

Britain has recently commissioned seven radio telescopes for SETI projects, called e-MERLIN, at Jodrell Bank Observatory, near Manchester.

Previously, "the equipment required to sift through data was expensive and unusual, but our modern telescopes are potentially capable of conducting these types of observations as a matter of course," said Tim O'Brien of Jodrell Bank.

Party Will Stand by its ‘Alien’ Councillor
Simon Parkes
Published: 3:10 PM 7/5/2013

Representatives of the Labour Party have said the group will stand by Whitby’s extraterrestrially-adopted councillor.

Stakesby Ward councillor Simon Parkes’ story of alien abduction, adoption and insemination has gone global following his revelations in a recent Channel 4 show.

Mr Parkes sits on the town council as a Labour party representative. When asked whether the party would stand beside their councillor, who claims links to the Illuminati and MI6, Bernie Keavy, regional communications officer said: “He’s a local councillor so it’s matter for the local group, but ultimately it’s a matter for the people who elected him.”

Local Labour party member Gerald Dennett defended Coun Parkes and said: “He seems to be doing an effective job as a town councillor. From my point of view, as a Labour party member, his views have no impact on his role as a member of the Labour party. Other people believe many things that I don’t.”

As yet, there is no indication as to whether Coun Parkes will retain the Labour party’s backing come the next election, but Mr Dennett said: “Some people believe this may be an electoral millstone around our heads, but I don’t. I can’t predict what the group is going to say as we have a lot of new members with a lot of new ideas.”

Following Mr Parkes’ revelations, which he initially made in 2010, he has become a figurehead for those who believe they have had extraterrestrial encounters. Fellow abductees from around the globe, including a Canadian couple who visited just last weekend, have all sought his advice.

Coun Parkes said: “I was in the market place the other day, buying highlighter pens, and the guy on one of the stalls said, ‘I tell you what’s refreshing, if I had a problem I would come to you because you are not scared of bureaucracy”. People are sick to death of slick politicians who are hugely well-paid and not in it for the right reasons.”

Alien Craft Injures Two Military Soldiers in Brazil
UFO Depiction
Published: 1:47 PM 7/1/2013

Sao Paulo, Brazil - 11-04-57

At 2 o'clock in the morning of November 4, 1957, at Fort Itaipu, located near Santos, São Paulo, Brazil, two guards were stationed atop the highest observation tower facing the ocean when they observed a very intense bright orange light in the sky.

At first, they thought it was a star with increased brightness for some unknown reason. Then they realized it was an object coming down at high speed, directly over the fort.

At about 1,000 feet (305 meters) above them, the object reduced speed and slowly continued to descend noiselessly until it suddenly stopped and hovered at about 50 meters over the guards.

At this altitude, the sentinels were able see the shape of the UFO, which was circular, with an apparent diameter of 100 feet and with an orange glow. The guards were afraid, and did not react.

Each was armed with a submachine gun, but no thoughts came to their minds to shoot at the UFO or to sound the alarm. At this time, they could hear a strong buzzing sound, like that of a generator, which emitted from inside the UFO.

Suddenly, it shot downward a strong heat wave hitting the two soldiers. It came with great intensity, but no flame or beam of light was visible. The heat wave set their uniforms on fire and one of them, overcome by the intense heat, was knocked down unconscious.

The other soldier, screaming in pain and fear, threw himself on the floor and crawled under a canyon for shelter. The cries awoke the garrison, but before any of the soldiers could respond to the area, all of the lights and electricity went out.

Only a moderate heat penetrated the interior of the fort, but this, along with total darkness, was enough to cause panic. After three minutes or so, the heat subsided and moments later, the electricity came back on.

Some soldiers came out running to their battle stations and many reported seeing the bright UFO moving away and disappearing up high in the night sky. The two men, in shock, were brought into the fort with first and 2nd degree burns on more than 10% of their bodies and received medical treatment.

Next, the commander of the fort sent an urgent message to the headquarters of the Brazilian Army. Shortly thereafter, the Brazilian Air Force was put on full alert and patrolled the area. After the incident, the fort was closed and put under investigation by the Brazilian government.

Since the United States was known to possess more knowledge about UFOs, high-ranking Brazilian authorities requested assistance from the American Embassy in their investigations. Almost immediately, officers of the Brazilian Army and U.S. Air Force flew to the fort, accompanied by researchers from the Brazilian Air Force.

The result of the investigation was not made public. The sentries who were burned were still in serious condition, but were able to talk from time to time.

After hearing their description of the incident, with details of the approach of the UFO and the alien heat, the researchers were left wondering why the guards were attacked.

The case of Fort Itaipu was kept secret for a long time and yet, the episode continues to this day without an explanation.
