1996 - UFO Encounter in Georgia
UFO Depiction - Georgia - Winter, 1996
Published: 4:51 PM 7/5/2011

Georgia - Winter, 1996

Everything in this report is 100% correct and factual. I have no reason to make up or fabricate anything, I have no other reason other than to try and explain what I saw on this day, and the incredible impact that it has had on me all these many years later.

It is not my intention to try and convince the naysayer and nonbelievers, but I will be honest and forthright with the events that transpired on this day.

People can conclude what they will from this, but the people who know me, know that I am not capable of making up stories, or lying for that matter.

Why did I wait to write now after so many years have passed?, or for that matter to bring it up at all?

Perhaps it is all the events going on in the world right now. There are so many strange events happening all over the planet.

It is no secret that more and more UFO sightings are happening on a regular basis. I’m writing this report for my own personal reasons. The people that I choose to share this with will most likely be close friends and family.

I have no reason to try and get any form of recognition, and certainly not looking for any kind of fame or glory. While I still can, I want to convey this event as accurately as possible, and with as much detail as I can remember.

One of my regrets is that I did not go straight home and write down the exact date that this occurred. In the last 10 years or so, I have been keeping very accurate records of day to day events, rarely skipping any.

Sadly during this time period, I didn’t give much credence to such things and therefore did not keep up with particulars.

As far as my biggest regret with this encounter, would have to be the fact that I did not have a camera or video recorder in order to substantiate my story.

If only I did, they would most certainly be some of the most revealing up close and in great detail, as ever witnessed by anyone.

I say this not to boast, but to simply state a fact. I have seen probably hundreds of videos on You Tube, some really good, some bad, others down right stupid or a hoax.

I am convinced that what I saw would have afforded me a visit from the so called “Men In Black.”

It would have been that spectacular, and set the standard by which all skeptics would have to ask,"WHAT WAS THAT?"

The aforementioned is the forward of my story. What follows will be the time line of what happened on this memorable day, one that I will never forget.

Measurements - Georgia - Winter, 1996 While I don’t know the exact date that this occurred, I do know that it was the winter of 1996, around November or December. I know this because the days were short, and all the leaves had fallen off the trees - this I know for sure.

I was working at Milliken Design Center in LaGrange, Georgia. My normal work hour was 8:00 – 5:00 o’clock, Monday through Friday - a typical office schedule.

It was not uncommon for me to work over an extra hour whenever necessary. On this particular day, I shut down my computer and prepared to leave the building at exactly 5:45 PM

I remember a gentleman walking ahead of me, approximately 50’ feet or so. He exited the side parking lot door first, a few seconds later I did the same.

He already had a head start going to his car, which was towards the left as you walk out the side doors. My car was parked more to the right as you walked out the door.

I will try to give a reference as to where his car was, as opposed to mine. It was at this moment (after leaving the building) that I first saw the unidentified flying object with my peripheral vision.

At that very moment the object had just came from the right corner of the building. It was at a very low altitude, approximately 80’ – 100’ feet in the air. It was traveling from a SW direction (215° azimuth), going in a NE direction (35° azimuth), at a line sight elevation of approximately 35°- 40° degrees.

It was moving at a very low rate of speed, thus giving me plenty of time to observe it. It made absolutely no sound at all - none whatsoever. Perhaps the one thing that caught my eye first was the huge bright light on the underside of the craft.

It was so bright that at times it was hard to look at. The top portion of the craft was shiny, silver metallic.

I remember thinking how strange that this craft had appendages sticking outward from the sides, different geometric sizes and shapes - something that I would later refer to as probes.

Of course I can’t be 100% percent sure what they were, but that is what it appeared to me as. As mentioned above, the craft moved or hovered slowly from a southwesterly direction going towards the northeast.

Once it came somewhat over the parking lot, I could see it plainly, making out the distinct shape and approximate size of the craft.

At the time of this sighting, I drove a 1980 white Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham. The size of this model car is 18.5’ feet long. Given this fact and judging the height and distance of the craft, and the proximity to where I was standing - I estimated the object as being approximately 25’ feet in circumference.

It was not a huge craft by any means, but was certainly capable of being maneuvered or controlled by some kind of intelligent life form. As the craft hovered slowly over the parking lot and passed over the trees in the median, separating actually two parking lots, it continued moving in the northeast direction.

I never took my eyes off the object the whole time, and as it moved on across the parking lot and almost over the main road in front of the office complex, it did something that defied all explanation of physics.

It went from moving slowly, let’s say 5 mph, to an accelerated speed so fast, the only way to describe it would be: “shooting a bullet” out of the barrel of a gun - basically a streak, then it was gone.

I have read similar cases of flying objects doing the same thing as I have described here. All one has to do is go to You Tube and type in “UFO,” it wouldn’t take long to find some videos showing similar maneuvers.

An example would be to type in the phrase on You Tube: “UFO Over River In Italy,” then you could understand the velocity by which I am describing.

I am convinced that neither America nor any other county on this planet has anything in its military arsenal that could come close to what I witnessed. Let me say for the record: this was not an airplane, jet, helicopter, balloon or anything else of this earth.

I certainly don’t need to be told that it was “swamp gas” or the planet “Venus,” or anything else that would insult my intelligent. What I saw was real, it really did happen, it took place exactly as I have outlined here, and no I am not crazy by a long shot.

Summary: The gentleman walking out the door ahead of me to his car never saw this object. As soon as I saw this object, I wanted to yell to this gentleman and say: “Hey man, do you see that?” but I was literally speechless, the words would not come out.

I was so in awe at the sight of this UFO, that I just could not take my eyes off it - not even for a second. The funny thing about this whole scenario I could remember telling myself that “this is a real UFO that I’m looking at.”

I just knew immediately what it was, but at the same time I couldn’t believe that it was right there in front of me, in all its wonder and mystery.

Note: On July 2nd, 2011- I did travel back to the place where this event took place and took several pictures. I used the aid of my old compass in order to get an accurate bearing on where I was standing, in relation to what direction the craft was traveling.

Keep in mind these photos were taken in the middle of summer, with the trees full of leaves, not to mention these trees have grown considerably over the past 15 years.

I have used the aid of “Google Map” in order to show a satellite view from space, the office complex where I worked at the time (MDC).

I even have a picture of what my white Cadillac looked like in order to give some credence to the size of this object. The UFO was slightly larger in circumference than that of my car, but it was the only thing at the time that I could reference in describing the object's size.

Lastly, I found a picture on the Internet that somewhat closely resembled the object in question. Please note that I did use software on my computer (MGI PhotoSuite IV) to help further enhance the photo.

It was my intention to show a truer comparison to what I saw on that day. It is not precisely the same in every detail, but certainly very close.

One exception worth mentioning here is that the photo that I have is darker, the actual UFO was very shiny and metallic on top. The bottom was somewhat darker than the top due to the lighting outside, except for one huge light in the middle - this was amazingly luminous.

The information that I have provided is true. This report is mainly for my own personal recollection. If other people read this and are inspired, that would great.

If others read it and think its hog-wash, that’s OK too.

It is not my intention to make people believe me. I do think people should open their minds to the possibility that we humans are arrogant if we think that we are the only intelligent beings in the universe.

UFO Sightings over London Confirmed in French COMETA Report
Photograph taken by Derek Burden of the London skyline which shows four UFOs in the sky Photo: ARCHANT
Published: 4:01 PM 7/6/2011

Submitted by Dave Masko

BRAY’S POINT, Ore. – A dog-eared copy of the French government produced “COMETA Report” states that London has always been “a known location for UFO sightings,” however, Oregon UFO “watchers” note that “it’s not news that UFOs are spotted over London because that’s been happening for decades.”

“The COMETA Report is a white paper given to the French President Jacques Chirac and Prime Minister Lionel Jospin in Spring 1999. The 14 COMETA members belong to the French College of War (IDHEDN) in Paris.

Their initiative was a private decision not an official decision.

Please contact me in private if you want to know more about this report,” stated French government spokesperson Norbert Jaquette back in January when this reporter first broke a story about COMETA.

At the same time, the British government followed suit in disclosing its massive secret UFO files that number more than 8,500 documents that are now available to the public. The release of these British UFO documents includes 35 large files that can be viewed at http://ufos.nationalarchives.gov.uk/

French and British governments admit to UFO sightings over London and other cities.

The French government’s "scientific" COMETA report about its UFO sighting investigations is now public, and under review by the worldwide UFO community.

Also, the British hoard of 8,500 once top secret UFO documents – that link to tens of thousands of other documents held at the FBI “Vault” of public UFO files, and a list of other United Nations countries that have also released UFO details -- the fact remains, says UFO “watchers” here at the popular UFO sighting spot at Bray’s Point along the central Oregon coast, “that UFOs and aliens are real.”

Still, there’s plenty of naysayers who do not believe that UFOs exist.

For instance, the recent UFO sightings over London have been explained away during a July 1 CBS News TV report that stated “a new viral video making the rounds on the Internet purports to show what's been dubbed a ‘mothership’ and at least three separate smaller alien spacecraft filmed in the skies over London.

” CBS News also noted that “the most famous video (which was taken anonymously and is one of two or three versions in circulation) shows a large glowing white oval moving in and out from behind clouds over the course of about 20 seconds, and then zooming off, with three white dots also making an appearance.

So what are they? The pattern of movement does not resemble any known aircraft, and some are already proclaiming the sighting as proof of aliens. While not exactly the same as landing on the proverbial White House lawn (or above 10 Downing Street), some say an appearance over London is a pretty high-profile statement that aliens are here.

Others aren't so sure. Some believe that the videos are merely a viral marketing tool to publicize the upcoming alien sci-fi film ‘Iron Sky.’ One argument against that explanation is that the film is not slated to be released until April 2012, though studios often begin early promotion, and these amateur UFO videos would take little time or effort for special effects professionals.”

COMETA Report features the who’s who of experts on UFO sightings.

According to a French government overview of COMETA, this now famous UFO sighting report was prefaced by General Bernard Norlain of the Air Force, former Director of IHEDN.

Also, the COMETA group “was presided over by General Denis Letty of the Air Force, another former auditor of IHEDN. “COMETA was a high-level French UFO study organization that began in the late 1990’s until its investigations were closed off from the public,” states one reference to COMETA in the recently released British UFO documents.

The Brits also note that the COMETA members were some of the “top minds in France.”

The COMETA UFO hunters were:

-- General Bruno Lemoine, Air Force (former auditor of IHEDN)
-- Admiral Marc Merlo, (former auditor of IHEDN)
-- Michel Algrin, Doctor in Political Sciences, attorney at law (former auditor of IHEDN)
-- General Pierre Bescond, engineer for armaments (former auditor of IHEDN)
-- Denis Blancher, Chief National Police superintendent at the Ministry of the Interior
-- Christian Marchal, chief engineer of the National Corps des Mines and Research Director at the National Office of Aeronautical Research (ONERA)
-- General Alain Orszag, Ph.D. in physics, armaments engineer

COMETA reveals much about the secret world of UFO sightings.

Oregon UFO “watchers” who regularly meet here at Bray’s Point, have a copy of the rare COMETA Report – thanks, in part to some painstaking research via the National Archives and the Division of Special Collections – that resulted in a contact that sold a copy of the COMETA to the group.

In addition, Oregon UFO “watchers” note that both British and French government freedom of information act type files about UFOs are also available to the general public, and that both governments have disclosed COMETA Report files that point to “regular UFO sightings over London and other parts of England ever since the end of World War II.”

“What we have here with this copy of COMETA is the French government admitting that unidentified flying objects (UFOs) are real. Also, COMETA is proof that UFOs exist because after 40 years nobody can prove it’s not a UFO. It’s real. It happened. COMETA Report will be remembered because it begins the conversation about making contact,” adds an Oregon UFO “watcher” who maintains this rare copy of COMETA for the group’s research purposes.

The COMETA Report also states that a UFO crisis is possible because “there are so many unknowns.”

Also, the COMETA Report states that because there’s no scientific or world government consensus on how to best communicate or investigate UFOs and alien life on Earth, it will remain in the status quo until a world doctrine on the existence of UFOs is ratified by members of the United Nations.

The report says there’s proof that UFO civilizations have roots here on Earth and, thus, a vested interest in Earth and its people.

Two Witnesses Watch UFO near Haystack Mountain in Maryland
Published: 12:13 PM 6/30/2011

Maryland - 06-29-11

My girlfriend M. and I sat down to relax on my parents patio. We had just eaten dinner and decided to light a fire.

We were facing southeast towards Haystack Mountain, seated next to each other talking, and I had just opened a beer (my first one of the night, alcohol played no factor in the sighting).

I remembered looking up and noting how clear the sky was as the sun was setting, and glanced straight up above our heads and saw a light like a star, only much, much brighter, like 10 or 20 stars worth of brightness.

I thought it was a plane with a reflection, but the sun had set long ago. It was moving, but kind of gliding along, it didn’t seem propelled, and initially in a southeast direction.

I nudged M. and pointed up at the light. She stopped mid-sentence and stared. So did I.

I said something about it being totally silent. Thinking it was gone over the mountain and behind the trees; I said jokingly "I hope they come for us!" and took a drink from my bottle.

If nothing happened after this point I would have still thought the light was out of place, it just seemed like it wasn’t supposed to be there.

I glanced up again to where I saw the object last, and it was just moving through the same space in the trees as it had just moved.

I know that sounds insane, but the only way I can describe it is: glitch in the Matrix. Like in the movie The Matrix when the cat walks in front of the door twice, like it’s on a loop.

Only this time it seemed brighter and bigger than before. My girlfriend saw the same thing. I just can’t make sense of what happened there.

It was moving fast enough that it should have kept going over the mountain and out of sight, it was like magic. All of this happened in about 15 - 30 seconds.

It was hard to tell really; my jaw was hanging open.

I had to get a better look so I ran out to the alley behind the house, about 30 feet east of where we first saw it, and it wasn't in the part of the sky I expected it to be, it was further down the mountain towards Cumberland.

It seemed to be moving faster as I was yelling for M. to come look.

From the time she walked from one end of the driveway to the other, it had changed from a solid bright white light, like a star much bigger than any in the sky maybe 10 or 20 times, down to the shape and size of a dim red star on a clear night, and vanished.

It looked like light that just faded out smoothly to a single point, and then disappeared. I can’t give you a distance from us to the craft with any accuracy, but it was maybe 50 - 200 feet above Haystack Mountain when it faded out, so maybe 250 - 500 feet directly above us at first sight.

I was excited, and M. was just saying, "What was that? What was that?”

And to make it creepier, there was not a sound to be heard; my parents live in a fairly quiet and secluded place.

There was no sound, that was not an airplane, blimp, or helicopter. I am still trying to wrap my brain around this one.

I wish I had a photo, but honestly it would look like a photo of stars, one being much brighter than the others.

Feel free to ask any questions, I will give as much information as I can.

Thanks for your time.

Russian Witness Recalls UFO-EBE
UFO Depiction
Published: 12:36 PM 7/8/2011

Edited by Albert Rosales

UFOINFO.com — The nineties was a decade of change, genocide, (Rwanda, Yugoslavia, etc.), Operation Desert Storm, and of perhaps the beginning of a new phase in natural disasters (Hurricane Andrew).

It also brought information from areas in the world which before there was few if any. The unprecedented wave of reports which began in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union in 1989 reached its peak during 1990-1992, hundreds of cases were catalogued by numerous UFO groups and investigators from those countries, but unfortunately many or most remained un-translated and unknown to most Western researches, perhaps with a few exceptions.

A notable case was reported in Simferopol, located in the Crimean Peninsula of Ukraine.

Before his encounter in 1990, the witness, a teenager from Yalta, back in the summer of 1928 was loitering in the mountains of the Ai’ Petri plateau, walking among the rocks and crags when suddenly he noticed a strange light emanating from a “karst” (shaft) on the ground.

Being curious he approached closer and kept watching the unearthly light from coming out of the shaft. Sometime later he was suddenly seized by fear and ran home.

Many years later (1990) the same witness (now obviously an adult) was in his bedroom at night when a very tall woman suddenly appeared in his room amidst a strange circle of light.

The woman communicated by using telepathy and said, “Do you remember when you were a young boy, you saw the light from the place we live in the shaft?”

The man was stunned since he had not told anybody about his previous experience. Before disappearing the strange woman told him that they lived in an underground city under the Ai’ Petri plateau with an approximate population of 2,000.

She added that they traveled in UFOs.

This case is part of the underground lore involving UFO bases and installations and of course ancient civilizations.

Beginning in the 90’s encounters with entities at times described as ‘looking like human-alien hybrids’ or strange looking humans that did not quite fit in or acted very bizarrely were beginning to be reported more often and from almost worldwide locations.

Another case:

Sometime in 1990, late at night in the area of New Town, Edinburgh, Scotland, a man named Brian Wilson was working the late shift one night at a local Pizza Parlour when a pair of “rather small” adults, who had a somewhat “lopsided” look about them, approached the counter, raised their right hands, and announced “Hi We’re Americans!”

“What would you like?” Brian asked them, to which they countered, “What do you make?”

“Pizzas” replied Brian.

“What are pizzas?” enquired the supposed Americans.

The couple watched Brian intently as he prepared two cheese and tomato pizzas. All the while, the male “kept looking around the shop like he’d never been in a pizza parlour before.”

Then the female pointed to a bowl of green peppers and asked what they were. By now, Brain’s colleague Doug had also noticed that there was something rather odd about the pair, and the two chefs exchanged glances of disbelief as Brian carefully explained what a pepper was.

“Do they taste nice?” wondered the female.

As the pair waited in silence for their pizzas (complete with green peppers) to cook, other customers came in and out of the shop as usual. Once their order was ready, the extraordinary Americans settled their bill.

Each took a single bite out of their pizza then threw the remainder into the bin outside the shop.

Brian entertained a suspicion that his visitors may have literally been from another planet.

“I had read stories on the subject of aliens masquerading as human beings,” he told investigators. “These two individuals came across as acting as humans, but not doing a very good job of it!”

Unknown Flying Objects Seen over Mt. Pleasant, PA
UFO Depiction
Published: 10:40 AM 7/1/2011

Pennsylvania - 06-29-11

I was walking around my apartment complex shortly after 10 PM... not sure of exact time but it was before 10:30 PM on June 29, 2011.

I live just off Route 981 right near downtown Mount Pleasant (Westmoreland County), PA., southeast of Pittsburgh about an hour travel time.

While outside I was watching the many airplanes moving about in all different directions.

I could see the underbellies of some of them and the twinkling lights, so those were either taking off from or landing in Pittsburgh.

Others were higher, but still I could tell they were airplanes due to the red and white twinkling lights under the wings.

I could distinguish the stars in the sky as well, and knew that the north star is the brightest, however, when looking in the southeast segment of the sky I saw two different phenomenon going on:

one looked like a supernova star just twinkling away... big, bright white flaring spurts of light.

While just off the side of it was a steady, bright white light just hovering and not really twinkling, but in a slow turn and hovering in place.

I grabbed my bifocals to zoom in better and discovered it was more triangular when looking through my bifocal readers.

I was certain then that it was a UFO. I watched it for at least another 10 minutes and it just stayed put in this location.

I did not wait to see if it would zoom off as others have reported seeing in many other reports I've read in the past on this site.

I am convinced that whoever they are and wherever they are from... they seem to love hovering around southwestern Pennsylvania during the month of June/July.

I saw a triangular UFO in Everson, PA, (which is only 7 miles south of Mt. Pleasant.) this same general months’ time frame in 2010.

Philip Corso's Claim of Seeing Alien Bodies
Philip Corso
He says that he actually saw the body of a dead alien recovered from the Roswell wreckage of 1947. For more than 50 years now, the world has been captivated by the Roswell incident, and Colonel Philip Corso, retired American Army officer, now deceased, has left us details of what he saw in 1947 at Fort Riley in Kansas.

He is the highest ranking officer to come forward with details about the famous New Mexico crash.

He claimed that the New Mexico wreckage was definitely not from a balloon, but from an alien spacecraft. Although the Roswell case often takes an occasional hit from witnesses whose claims are debunked, or from the fakery of the infamous Santilli Alien Autopsy Film, it always comes back to the forefront of Ufology.

Corso's claims became public knowledge in his book, "The Day After Roswell."

Not only did Corso claim to have seen an alien body from Roswell, but also secret Pentagon files regarding the incident. He stated that the Pentagon had the bodies of aliens shipped to the Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, D. C. Autopsies were done on the dead aliens. He also tells us that America's best was stumped by the extraordinary technological marvels in the alien craft.

Different parts of the Roswell craft were sent to various defense companies, who reverse engineered their properties. This engineering feat eventually led to a number of breakthroughs. Among them were integrated circuitry, night vision equipment, the laser, particle beams, and fiber optics. The contractors were told that the parts were stolen from Russia.

He also claims that the government cover-up was not only to hide the truth of extraterrestrial intelligence from the public, but also to allow the time needed for the reverse engineering process to be protected from foreign countries, especially the Russians.

In his book, Corso stated; "Nobody wanted to come in second place in the silent, unacknowledged alien-technology development race going on at the Pentagon as each service quietly pursued its version of a secret Roswell weapon."

Corso's first breakthrough into the vast "above top secret" box of goodies came when he was stationed at Fort Riley in Kansas in July of 1947. He had become curious about a cache of sealed boxes which were being stored in a high security area of the base. Not being able to hold back his desire to look into the secrets inside, he took a torch and pried open one of the boxes. He was shocked at what he was looking at.

"The contents, enclosed in a thick glass container, were submerged in a thick light blue liquid. At first I thought it was a dead child they were shipping somewhere, but this was no child. "It was a 4ft human-shaped figure with arms, bizarre-looking four-fingered hands - I didn't see a thumb - thin legs and feet, and an over-sized incandescent light bulb-shaped head that looked like it was floating over a balloon gondola for a chin."

Alleged Alien Body "I had the urge to touch the pale grey skin. But I couldn't tell whether it was skin because it also looked like a very thin one-piece head-to-toe fabric covering the creature's flesh."

Corso's description of the body is very much the same as other Roswell witnesses have described the aliens.

Although some investigators reject Corso's claims, there can be no doubt about his credentials.

After joining the Army in 1942, he served in Army Intelligence in Europe.

During the Korean War, he continued his Intelligence duties under General Douglas MacArthur.

He rounded out an impressive resume with four years on President Dwight Eisenhower's national security staff.

The main criticism about his book is that there is a lack of references to documents, which, in my opinion does not necessarily make his claims false. With the reputation that Corso had, and his clearances, it seems highly likely to me that he would have been in a position to see what he saw.


Attorney Peter A. Gersten, executive director of Citizens Against UFO Secrecy, Inc. (CAUS), a non-profit Arizona activist organization dedicated to ending all secrecy surrounding this planet's contact with an extraterrestrial intelligence, announced today that retired Army Colonel Philip J. Corso has sworn under oath to statements previously made in his best-selling book 'Day After Roswell.'

Gersten stated that Colonel Corso has provided CAUS, for use in its lawsuit against the Department of Army, with a sworn affidavit re-affirming previous statements that he saw alien bodies in July, 1947 and had the opportunity to read their autopsy reports in 1961.

The CAUS lawsuit, which was filed March 25, 1998 in the U.S. District Court in Phoenix, is asking the federal court to direct the Army to provide Gersten and CAUS with any and all documents relevant to what the Colonel, now swears under oath, he saw and read.

Corso died of a heart attack at approximately 11:15 pm EDT on Thursday, July 16, 1998. He was 83.
