written by Martin Beattie - www.ufoevolution.com

I used to look through old UFO books when I was a kid in the 1980's and be amazed at the pictures of strange glowing disc-shaped objects hovering over various parts of the world. It gave me a sense inside that I was watching an American 1950’s B-Movie.

However, I also believed in most cases what I was looking at was a very strange, but real object that I didn't really understand. I was aware of double exposures and basic photo editing techniques that could be used to alter a photo, but some of them just looked too good to be fakes.

Today is a different matter.

I'm forever posting videos to my web site and always do it with the best intentions at heart. I would never post an obvious fake unless I mentioned in the title it was a fake ,and wanted people’s opinions on it. When I watch UFO videos they seem to have lost their magic. I no longer get a sense of seeing something I'm not supposed to see. I always have the following thoughts going through my mind:

1. “Sure it looks good, but it could be CGI?”

2. “I need to see it move to get a better idea if it’s real”

3. “Could I have made this in Adobe Photoshop or some video editing software?”

4. “Who is the person posting this?”

5. “Where in the world is this from?”

The software that could be used to make these fakes is expensive, which should help keep it out of the hands of any old Joe on the street who wants to make a fake UFO video. However, even this won't stop the fakers.

Photoshop and other powerful image/video editing software can be found for download on the many Torrent web sites that seem to infest the Internet these days.

So I think it’s accurate to say that anyone can have access to these tools that no so long ago where only in the hands of big film studios, or image editing companies.

I think it’s got to the point now where Ufology in general has suffered. The genuine content is so much harder to find amongst the endless fakes and CGI on the net.

I can never be 100% sure a video is real, but I have devised a few basic rules to help with the videos I share with members on my site:

1. “Does the person have a reason for filming the sky at that certain time?”

2. “What are the witness’s reactions to the object?”

3. “Does the camera appear to be filming an object, or is it just fixed on a point?”

4. “Does the video person have a UFO web site, or prior interest in them?”

5. “Has the person uploaded UFO videos before?

Maybe the best method of approach is to examine the person first, rather than the video? I've found the UFO fakers normally get addicted to fooling people and will do it more than once. I also find a video more believable if it comes from someone who doesn't own a UFO Web site/Blog and has no prior interest in them.

People sometimes wonder what the motivation for faking UFO videos are? Well let me tell those of you that might not know. Sometimes, it’s just the obvious one that people like attention, but sometimes it’s more than that.

If you have a really popular video on a site like YouTube, it can lead to money and interest in whatever you are trying to promote. For example, if you have a really popular video channel you can earn revenue from advertising.

You can also direct large numbers of people to your own Web site/Blog and earn even more income from adverts/links on your personal web page’s. Money is the root of deception.

At a point in the future if a video is ever released that shows without any doubt that UFOs and Aliens visiting the Earth are real - for example, footage inside a craft with beings etc, I will still be in doubt the first few times I watch it, unless it comes from an official source with a statement and news conference.

Let’s hope it happens in our lifetimes because I'd prefer living in a world with a much broader outlook of ourselves and the universe we live in. I think it will improve all of our time on this planet and beyond.

Thanks for reading,

Secret Canadian Government Documents show US/CA UFO Coverup
Published: July 31, 2009

Author : Paul Short

After the Inquisitr covered an incident earlier this week where an Unidentified Flying Object crashed into the Ottawa River near Ottawa, Ontario Canada, we received a mysterious email from someone in possession of thousands of previously classified Canadian government documents revealing how the government would deal with the UFO phenomenon should one land on Canadian soil.

The sender of this email attached several samples of said documents and if you’ve wondered why the governments of the United States and Canada never publicly acknowledge the existence of UFOs, it’s because Canada has followed in the footsteps of the US and opted to cover up or downplay such incidents.

Below is a screenshot of one of the documents. Note the second picture where section 5 is highlighted.



On April 19, 1950, recommendations were drawn up by Canada’s Director of Scientific Intelligence at the time, A. J. G. Langly, for debriefing questionaires to be handed out by the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) in the event someone reported a UFO sighting to them.

Section 5. of that document above states:

“5. You might also consider it advisable to add that should the Flying Saucer actually make a landing on Canadian territory, the nearest RCAF (Royal Canadian Air Force) Command should be advised immediately by telegram or something of the sort.”

The reply to that first letter is below. Read it carefully and also the notes following.


“The present USAF policy is to play down the subject, investigating only when considered necessary by the area commander without any special arrangements for reporting or investigation.

2. It seems that a similar policy on our part would be wise and that it would be undesirable to produce a special questionnaire or make any arrangements for investigation since this would give publicity to the matter. It is suggested therefore that sighting reports should not be solicited and such as pro-volunteered should be passed to DSI for retention and further notion only if further notion seems necessary.

3. It may perhaps be advisable to have this matter brought up in committee so that an official decision can be taken.”

The recommendations state that USAF (United States Air Force) policy at the time was to play down UFO sightings, and that the Canadian RCMP should not have a questionaire for people who report such sightings because collecting information would draw publicity to the matter. However, if someone submitted their own written statement of a sighting to police, it should be accepted but passed on to another organization to decide whether or not to investigate.

This is just the first sample of these declassified documents. The Inquisitr will have more in this series as we obtain more information from our source. Stay tuned and remember to look up now and then. You never know what you’ll see.

Cross-Shaped UFO over Virginia - Electrical Interference Encountered
Published: 10:47 AM 8/4/2009

Poquoson, VA - 07-31-09

Have you ever had anyone write you regarding a UFO that was described as a cross? Last Friday night, July31, 2009, I was standing outside in my screened deck. It was between 12:30 and 1:00 am. I was talking to my girlfriend on my cell phone, and my battery was running low.

As we were talking, I looked up in the sky and saw a BRIGHT, illuminating cross coming towards my house. At first I took a double look because I have never seen anything like it. I saw two blinking lights on it, so immediately my mind said, "OK... US Aircraft.

But I started listening to the sound and it was a very low sound, nothing like what I am used to hearing in regards to aircraft. As it was getting closer, my phone went dead. Well, I automatically assumed it was because my phone died and I went in the house to plug it up. But then I realized that I had no signal.

My 15 year old daughter was still up watching TV so I asked her if she had signal... she had none. For ten minutes I tried to get signal, said forget it and went to bed. So at the same time this thing was flying near my house, we lost signal from a satellite... which has never happened... not for that long!

Now hindsight... I should have grabbed my camera and ran back outside to see where this thing went. The strange thing about it is this: I live in Poquoson, VA, right next to the Poquoson/Yorktown county lines. We have Langley Air Force Base and NASA literally right around the corner.

I am a military brat... so I have lived near bases my entire life. And what I saw that night is NOTHING like I have seen in all my years. In addition, this "craft" was not flying on proper flight paths. I also have an airport not far from me. I am on my back deck a lot so I know all the flight paths.

I was talking to one of my friends today with the "I know you are going to think I am crazy" speech, but she was silent when I was telling her this. She then asked me what night this was. I had to check my email because I had posted something on Craigslist asking if anyone had seen anything weird because I couldn't have been the only one that saw this.

(No response, so I deleted, but am thinking about posting another one again). Her and her daughter saw something Thursday night, but it was different than what we saw... it was between 12:30 and 1:00 as well, and she said she looked at her daughter and was like "Did you see that?" and her daughter said "That was a UFO." They live in Virginia Beach, VA.

UFOs - My Readers' Sightings by Chris Holly
Published: 2:47 PM 8/7/2009

by Chris Holly

My last few articles that I have written about the fear that is felt by those who have had close encounters resulted in many emails from those who also have felt this fear and also have had encounters that they have not really talked about openly due to the ridicule and reaction of the public.

My article about the large UFO sighting by a group of men who watched it attached to a group of main electric tower lines along with a cell tower and radio tower transmitter also resulted in many emails. The emails continued with my article concerning the grid and my thoughts of what is going on with so many sightings of unknown crafts all over the world near electric wires or plants as well as other infrastructure parts of our society.

Most all the emails were positive. Many were from people telling me about their own experiences with the unknown. I also had one or two run-of-the-mill hate emails. The hate mail is always the same and always ridiculous ranting of hatred and ignorance by those who really have no idea what they are talking about.

I think it is sad that people who are limited in thinking would rather send out short sentences of hate always misspelled instead of spending time reading and learning. It is a sad, but part of the life of all paranormal writers who try to open people’s minds to what is going on all around them.

It also is something that is silly and not going to stop what we do or is given much attention or consideration. It is however, a symptom of why people shy away from coming forward when they encounter the paranormal.

Who needs to listen to close-minded fools after experiencing once in a lifetime events? It is easier to just shut out the world and keep your experience close to your family and friends. I try to bridge this gap, making the knowledge we do have at least available to those who wish to read about it. I have had people send me the events that they have experienced trusting that I will protect their identities yet share what they have encountered with those who are interested in knowing what others have endured or experienced.

I want to share a few of these real people real events with you and have compiled a few of my emails as to share what other people all across the country have experienced. I understand how exhausting dealing with the limited thinkers and haters can be and fully intend to be one who will tell the stories of those who have encountered the unknown while protecting them from the ignorant and cruel.

My first email came from someone I grew up with that only recently sent me this report of what he and his family witnessed back in 1972 on the Connetiqout River on Long Island, New York.

"Back in 72 my family and I were on our cabin cruiser anchored at the mouth of the River. We would often stay the night on the boat before heading out in the morning to go fishing or dock over at Fire Island for the weekend.

"This was a Friday night in August and it was like many other nights we slept over on the boat before heading out for an early morning trip. It was a beautiful clear night and my brother and I decided to sleep on the open deck in our sleeping bags instead of below.

"Shortly after midnight I woke up. As I adjusted my eyes from my sleep I thought I saw a bright light skim across the boat. I got out of my sleeping bag and stood up to look around. The moment I stood up I saw it over the river hovering in the sky. I quickly bent down trying hide from view and crawled back to my brother.

"I woke my brother and told him to not say a word and crawl with me so we could get inside the boat and wake my parents. Slowly we made it below where we woke my mother and father whispering to them that a UFO was hovering over the river above the boat.

"My father looked at us as if we were nuts, but also could see how terrified we were. I told my parents you could clearly see it from the boat's windows that lined our small sitting area topside. We all silently crept into this sitting area and watched staying hidden from view at the large craft hanging over the river.

The thing was about the size of a house in width but only about one story in height. It was gunmetal gray, and seemed to illuminate a white glow every minute or so, but mainly stayed dark which made it much harder to see in the night.

"When the thing glowed you could see it clearly defined. It was like a big cucumber looking thing that just hung there in the night sky. It made no noise and did not cause the water to ripple or move under it. I could not see any openings or windows at all.

"The water under it began to move in small whirlpools, and we heard a slight noise like a distant motor and it started to glow and rise. It just went straight up and then as it got smaller just shot off away out from the river over the bay towards the ocean. In seconds it was gone.

"The next morning my parents asked a few other boats that were also spending the night if they had seen or heard anything the night before. The people all looked at us like we were crazy. That was our first taste of how you are treated when you see something and say something.

"We only told the people we knew and trusted about this sighting as we quickly learned how those who have never seen anything receive this kind of thing. We heard by way of town gossip that a widow who lived alone in one of the houses along the river claimed she saw a UFO that summer also. The poor woman was made the laughing stock of the town.”

I found the above story were interesting as I grew up along that river and know this family for many years. I had no idea that this event occurred until my friend recently sent me that email. He also told me that it bothered him all these years that they never reported or talked about the event and wanted me to write about it.

That is when I decided to compile his and other sightings sent to me into articles I can share with all of my readers.

It is in my mind very important that these events are shared and made public. The more we know about what others have experienced, the better prepared we all can be for what may one day be right in front of our own eyes.

I received this next email from a man who now lives in Europe but grew up in New Jersey. He wanted to share what happened to him in 1987 while living in New Jersey.

"Your latest article about people seeking out alien abductions is most interesting for several reasons. The first one being that me and one of my friends tried doing exactly that by driving up to High Point, NJ, 22 years ago. This was, an area that was reported to have had its fair share of UFO sightings back then. I now realize the foolishness of that endeavor, and am grateful that we weren't abducted!

"I've always been interested in the UFO phenomenon because I actually experienced a UFO incident when I was 9 years old back in 1977 in Garfield, NJ. It was the creepiest thing. Back then we had a backyard swing, and I was playing on it when all of a sudden I had the scary feeling that someone was watching me.

"I noticed that all the usual summertime sounds had disappeared. Sensing that something was up, I stopped swinging and looked around, only to be shocked out of my mind at seeing a UFO hovering right above our garage, about 50 feet away.

"The thing was as wide as the garage, about 15 feet, and was shaped like a lentil, having a top and a bottom half, one of which was black, and the other silver/chrome and segmented. One of the halves was rotating, but for the life of me I can't remember whether the top half was black or the bottom was, or which of the halves was rotating.

"I looked at this craft for about 15 seconds before running upstairs in a panicked state to tell my parents. By the time they could look outside it was gone. I was quite shaken by this for many weeks.

"I know for a fact that what I saw was real, because even at that tender age I knew the difference between an airplane and I knew what the Goodyear Blimp looked like. Years later, when I first got on the Internet I started looking up UFO sightings in northern New Jersey, and lo and behold, other people in the area saw the exact same craft as I did around that same time!

"A couple of years before that was the famous Passaic sighting where a UFO the size of a city block hovered over the city for like an hour and was seen by soldiers, doctors, police officers, and other highly credible witnesses.

"Mind you, I have no conscious recollection of any abduction event taking place, I don't ever want to be hypnotized, because in the event I really was abducted, I really don't want to know.”

I have gotten other emails concerning sightings by people when they were children and realize that many of us spent so much of our time outdoors as children, which of course increased our odds of having sightings.

We also were more aware of our surroundings as children and were able to realize when things were different and took the time to stop and look around. As adults we seem to be lost in the daily grind of obligations and are far less in touch with our surroundings.

Another man sent me this report of a very odd event he endured as a child.

"I had this encounter at my home in 1961. I was 7 years old. I was in my backyard playing when an extremely bright light appeared along the fence. Out of the light a door opened and two creatures emerged.

"Being 7 years old at first I thought these were power company men to fix power lines. They had on bright aluminum suits with an emblem on shoulder that was in blue of a flying snake. It was similar to a doctor’s emblem.

"Communication with these beings was instant as they could read your mind and knew my thoughts. One of the beings touched me on the head and said "This ones mind is well organized."

"I never forgot this incident or what that little man said. Shortly afterward I learned about the Hill's abduction and I could relate.

"I think they target children due to their lack of fear and the alien's lack of fear of our children. It can go on for years with the same person I am told.”

This man never forgot what he saw that day. I received other reports very much like this one where children where approached and had communication with the beings.

The common thread I found in these reports is that the children did not remember physical talking but knew the beings were communicating with them. I also found a similar description of the beings - beings of light or covered in light or looking like glowing angels. It seems as though something is brazenly approaching our children right in their own yards while they are playing without our being aware of it.

The last email I have added to this article is one that can be added to the many others that I receive or read from all over the world involving electric power plants, electric wires, or blackouts.

It is obvious that there is a connection with UFOs and our infrastructure. I know the idea is frightening to many and that this fear has been the base of a few of my hate emails. I can only say that it is best to understand what may be going on around you.

Being angry when it is brought to your attention is foolish and extremely dangerous. It is far better to understand what we are dealing with then to hide or scream at those who try to open your minds to new thinking.

Many reports come from the area of our grids or our interior systems that connect us all. It is impossible to 'not' think there are reasons to justify this type of report. These sightings have been going on for as long as we have had wires and communication devices connecting our building and homes.

The following email is from a woman who gives this report that took place in Texas in 1974.

"At the time I was a teenager out in my car with a boyfriend. We were cruising around at a popular place called MT Creek Lake in Dallas, Texas. The area is hilly with winding roads and thick woods. There’s an electrical plant located there alongside the lake.

"It was a late summer weeknight and we were about the only ones out there. The year was 1974, and it was evening in late August or early September. I was planning on ending my relationship with this boyfriend and was riding around looking for a good spot for us to sit and talk.

I think we both had the same idea that night. While on our way to a good spot we literally were almost run off the narrow road by a car speeding out of the area.

"Dirt and road rocks hit my car. Being a new driver I was really shaken up by this, and pulled over immediately into the first lit up area which was the amber tone lights of the electric power plants parking area. The amber lights made things surreal. I'd never been to this location before or this part of the lake before.

"As we looked around the lake we both had the shock of our lives - as there it was.

"Right there in front of us was this huge craft hovering no more than 3 ft above the lake water next to the plant. The plant appeared closed as it only had on what looked like night lights on. I'll never forget the plant had a 2ND story picture window. I could see the plant was dimly lit inside. I was amazed that not a soul was looking out that window. They would have had an extra close and perfect view of the huge, dull metal color, no windows, and no doors, UFO.

"It was perfectly still and no more than 3 ft above the water with nothing between it and water. It had great height to it and it was round. We could not see all around it because of its size. It was round in shape, like a big dome shape. It was kind of plain looking. It was just hanging there still over the lake above the water. This UFO was the size of a 2-story house. It had to have at least 2 levels to it. It was so low I couldn't see the flat bottom side of it.

"It was running because it had lights operating. I remember the eerie, white lights mostly, but I do also think I remember seeing blue and red ones too.

"After about a minute’s time we spoke to each other. What is that? - not a plane, not the shape of a blimp, not any flying thing I've ever seen, it must be a UFO.

"How is that huge thing staying above water and not moving? It’s quiet but it’s running, those lights are like search lights, what’s behind those lights? There’s a strange low operating sound to those lights, 'Look! there’s no doors, hey, there’s no writing on it either, what is it then? There are no windows; it’s definitely a UFO.'

"It must be getting its energy from the electric currants under water, maybe it’s gassing up, can something see us behind those lights hitting us (intermittently)?

"The lights are frightening- do they see us? What the hell’s inside it? The car that went speeding by us must have seen it too. If this were supposed to be here somebody would be in the building looking out.

"We started to get really scared. I felt as if they were watching us. We are really scared. We did the very same thing the other car did and got out of there as fast as possible.

"We might have been there 5 minutes… couldn't say for sure. The parts I remember seem like that amount of time. It could have been longer. We both just wanted to get back to safety as fast as possible. I remember my boyfriend being very anxious to get to his home showing me shortcuts to his house. He was not the type to act that way.

"When I got home I told my mother and it seemed like she believed me somewhat. She vaguely does remember me telling her about the incident today. I never saw the boyfriend again to discuss it. I didn't have to break up with him. I guess a lot was said without saying it. After all who would have ever believed us? In fact I pretty much went on about my life and kept this to myself until much later in my life. I hear others do the same."

I found this email to be an excellent report of a sighting near an electric plant that fits in with so many other reports out there. Many people are seeing huge crafts silently hovering over electric plants, power plants and other sources of infrastructure areas.

They also go hand in hand with black outs and drone sightings above our electric lines. How can so many people be seeing such similar things yet no one seems to be aware of it?

I will leave you with these emails to decide if you think we all need to pay far more attention to what is taking place right under our noses all over this country, all over this globe - without our being aware of it.

To my readers who sent and allowed me to share their experiences with all of you, I thank you all. If you have had a encounter, sighting or event tell someone. Who knows? one day maybe your report will help some other person make it through the moment they come face to face with the unknown.

Be careful out there and always keep looking up!

More Lights Seen in the Night Sky above Powys
Lights over Powys
Published: 03 August 2009

Published by: Richard Jones

FOLLOWING last week story on the increase in UFO sightings in Powys this summer, two more people have submitted photographs taken of Unidentified Flying Objects.

Emma Mayall, of Dolanog, was letting the dogs out for their daily night exercise at approximately 10pm last month when she saw what she believes was a flying saucer hovering high above her head.

Emma quickly went to collect her camera and took a collection of photographs (see above).

She said: “I am convinced it was a UFO that I saw. I think people who think we are the only living beings on this earth are very naive.

“The object hovered in the sky before they moved in a sharp sudden zig-zag movement and then hovered again.

“We regularly get aeroplanes going over so we are used to seeing those kind of lights, but these were definitely different. We have had a lot of sightings where we live, especially our back field and front field.”

Meanwhile, in Llansanffraid, John Jones, of Glas Coed Courtyard, took these photographs of what he believes to be a UFO flying above his house at 11.30pm on Saturday night.

He said: “I saw a big light in the sky and dashed into the house to get my camera. The light was squarish with circular edges and there was an orange light underneath it.

“On the photograph the light shows up as being white but at the time it was more of an orange colour. There were three of them in total, one remained still, one slowly moved off and the other sped off, leaving a tail behind.

“This is not the first time I have witnessed something, so although I wouldn’t say I am a fanatical believer, I am not a non-believer that there is something out there.”

Unknown Object Videotaped over Oregon-03-20-07
UFO, Oregon (Editor's Note: In private conversations, radio, and television interviews, I have often been asked what I believe is the best photo or video evidence of a UFO. I can't put the best ones in order, but I will say that this video from Oregon is definitely one of the very best. I was able to talk to the videographer, and hold a first generation digital copy of the video.)

Submitted to the UFO Casebook - Object observed and videotaped between Eagle Point and White City, Oregon-3-20-2007 about 11 AM.

With my eyes it was first seen as a small, shiny, white dot. I got my camera out and tried to zoom in and couldn't find it.

Then I saw the shining again and zoomed in and started recording, and it was dark again and then shiny again, and then dark again, before it was blocked by a tree and I couldn't find it again, about 16 seconds of video.

It was just above the mountains and when I was recording it, it seemed to be moving south. When I watched it on the TV and on computer it appeared to stay in the same place above the same cloud feature. We were on Modoc Rd. headed towards Medford, Oregon, and it was east of us towards Eagle Point or White City.

I thought maybe it would turn out to be a plane when I watched it on the TV screen, but I still couldn't tell what it was exactly.

The truck was bouncing me around and it was hard to keep it on the object and we couldn't pull over because we were working. My husband was with me but he was driving and couldn't see it.

There were no airplanes or helicopters in the area. It was a cloudy day, but no rain. There were no electromagnetic effects, missing time, or smells associated with the sighting.

Witness remains anonymous.

UFO Casebook report


(last update, 08-07-09)

Georgia - Three Red Lights
08-04-09 - I was taking out the trash and saw out of the corner of my eye, 3 red lights in the sky. At first a thought it was a C-130, but the lights were too far apart to be an aircraft and the lights were stationary, hovering in the sky.

They stayed there for about 60 seconds and then the light on the left slowly faded away, then the light at the top of the triangle slowly faded away, and then the last one on the left did the same. There was no sound. I was shocked! I ran as fast as I could and told my friends. source: www.mufon.com

Pennsylvania - Stealth-Like Object Seen
08-05-09 - My wife and I were driving on Rt 173 South toward Grove City, PA, when we I saw a red light in the sky at the top of the hill near the intersection of George Jr. Rd. I thought nothing of it as the Grove City Medical Center (GCMC) is right up the road where they have Life Flight helicopters in and out frequently.

As we crested the hill and rounded the bend near Gasper Rd., we both noticed the red light again. It was moving very quickly from West to East. It slowed and then began to turn as it ascended for a banked 180 degree turn. As it was turning, a white light appeared on the left side of the craft as if it were rotating clockwise to set itself up to speed off.

It then moved very rapidly to the West. My wife and I lost sight of it behind the trees near the GCMC. We both looked at each other and asked each other if we saw "it." We both saw the same thing.

My wife says she could see the shape of the craft similar to a "stingray" as she put it, or similar to the Stealth Bomber. She also thinks, but is not sure, she saw a blue light on it as well. I only saw a red light on the right side and a white light on the left side. It moved very smoothly and quickly and I could not hear it at all. source: www.mufon.com

South Carolina - Orange, Glowing Objects
08-03-09 - I was sitting outside on a clear night, on my porch swing, talking on my phone. I saw several orange glowing objects enter the atmosphere towards the direction of the ocean, at a high rate of speed.

They were like falling stars, then came to an immediate halt, formed a line, as several more appeared and joined in the "formation," then glows faded out, to be replaced by what looked like airplane lights, and each object went off in a different direction. I was in awe and excited. source: www.mufon.com

Washington - Three Lights in Triangle Shape
08-03-09 - Last night my son and I saw a "UFO" over Anacortes, Washington, heading southeast. It made two noises, one of which was a high pitch whine, sort of like as a plane might be diving or crashing, the other sound was more of a rumble similar to a very large blimp. My sons were awoke by the rumble.

It had three lights which were airplane like, in a light red tone forming a perfect equilateral triangle. There were also two white alternating lights that appeared to be in a center-front position on the bottom of the craft.

It appeared to be flying very slow and at low altitude as it flew over toward the refinery. I saw what looked like a wide flattish wing bending up at the outside edge, in a grey shade, as the refinery's flame reflected off the item, (the flares give off an eerie glow as they burn, so who knows the actual color).

I saw the UFO from a different angle than my son - he was on the 2nd floor, I was on ground level, getting water when I heard the rumble and then the whining. It sounded like a plane going to crash and I went to look out back, it had already passed over, so I ran back inside and watched the triangle of lights continue towards the refinery (the color seems not as red to me, but I was looking through low-E glass).

Our guess is some sort of military item, but we can't identify it. My son, (who is very into military aircraft) thinks the closest likeness would be a C-130 super Hercules, as perhaps a cargo plane for the Blue Angels, but he really didn't think that was it. He said it was moving too slowly for anything he could think of, and if it was in fact moving at a normal cruising speed, then that would make the craft a massive size, being that it would be at high altitude.

When he went out in front of the house to look again, the craft started to fade off in the distance and for the last portion of visibility the only lights to be seen were the white flashing ones. We watched until it flew out of range and/or was no longer in sight. We stayed up for quite awhile watching the sky trying to find it again, but to no avail. source: www.mufon.com
