Encounters in New York - One Family's Experiences
UFO Depiction
Published: 4:25 PM 9/2/2011

When I was 7 my dad built a house in Farnham, NY, in a wooded area next to Lake Erie, about 30 miles south of Buffalo, NY.

In my bedroom I had one window facing the woods, the other facing a field. I would awaken to a bright white light shining through the sides of my drawn shades.

When I looked out the window facing the woods, I saw several disc-shaped craft at different distances, randomly flashing their white lights down to the ground & over the lake.

I remember the lights through the trees as they got closer. I would hide under my bed or in the closet when they came. There was a neon blue light that as I was hiding I knew I couldn’t let it touch me or they would take me.

The blue light would move around the room. It would go around the bed, shining on the floor. When I was in my closet I had to snug up really close into the far corner because it would shine under the door, moving back & forth.

Then it would be gone as quick as it came. My parents always told me it was a bad dream... every time it happened. It was 1959; no TV or movies back then.

I didn't know how to tell them what I was experiencing since I didn't have the words to explain it. It wasn't until I was an adult & saw 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' that I had that panicked feeling again. The sight of those white & blue lights! This went on for years.

When I was about 11-years-old, my uncle came over one evening & asked "Do you want to look for UFOs?" I asked him what he meant. What were UFOs? Of course my parents must have shared my "dreams" with him. But my uncle was serious about this.

We would have our binoculars & we observed more unusual "light" activity over that lake than I ever could have imagined. When I was 13, August 19, 1965, there was a documented UFO landing in Cherry Creek, NY, not all that far from us.

My dad told us about it & packed me, my 2 brothers & my mom in the car to go see where this happened. I could hardly believe it that my parents now acknowledged this activity did go on!

When we got there, there were a lot of people. Lots of military people & military vehicles. People with cameras & lots of confusion.

I remember my dad getting waved on to exit the area. The officer had a frantic look on his face as he feverishly waved us on.

My next experience happened in the mid-70s. I was shopping with my 6-year-old daughter in Hamburg, NY, about 10 miles south of Buffalo, NY, along Lake Erie.

It was dark & I noticed a large, round, white light moving strangely in the sky. I said to my daughter & she remembers me saying it... "I think that's a UFO!"

I pulled over & we watched it. Before I knew it, there were several other people pulling over to watch it, and then it was gone.

Also in the mid-70s I lived in North Collins, NY, about 20 miles south of Buffalo. On the news they said we would be able to see Skylab crossing the night sky like a fast moving star.

My sister-in-law & I were in the driveway looking in the direction of Skylab’s path. We were getting disappointed, thinking we had missed it. So we started looking in a different direction behind us.

Just then over my 2 story house was an absolutely silent, huge tubular H-shaped UFO. It was tumbling end over end, just above the trees.

We looked at each other & I said "That wasn't Skylab!"

As we turned around & faced our original direction, we did see Skylab making its path. She was a nonbeliever until that night!

In 1994 I was driving with my 18-year-old son & his girlfriend to take her home. It was about 9:00 PM. We were in Lawtons, NY, about 25 miles south of Buffalo.

My son said "What is that thing?"

About half a mile to the left of us was a big, glowing white sphere traveling east. It was going in the same direction as us & got a little ahead of us. We watched it zigzag, go up & down behind the tree line then it was gone.

UFO Depiction We dropped off his girlfriend & to our right it appeared again. There were several smaller white lights now with it & my son called them "chasers" because they seemed to chase or maybe even follow the larger white sphere.

We were on a very rural back road. They all disappeared again when my car radio started getting a lot of static & my car was sputtering. My son said "Ma, they're back!"

There they were to our right again. I pulled over & shut the car off. To my left coming from the west was a massive, black triangular UFO heading toward us.

The smaller white chasers were with it. I opened my window. My son climbed onto the car floor and said to get the heck out of there.

But all I could do was stare at this craft as it got closer to us. It had a red light on the front point & a white light on each of the rear points. It was totally silent.

When it was about over us it took off going north & about a second later it was gone. The chasers were gone too. My car started up fine. The radio was fine.

It wasn't until quite a few years later that I saw a show on about black triangles. I didn't know that what we saw had a name & that others had seen them.

Over the years I've had many, many more experiences with sightings. These are a few of my most profound.

My husband's always saying they keep finding me. That's how I feel.

Thank you Billy for allowing me the opportunity to share these reports with you. We are not alone.

And I thank the submitter for sending in her report.

Were Aliens Encountered in Salisbury, Maryland?
UFO Depiction
Published: 5:16 PM 9/2/2011

Salisbury, Maryland - 09-01-11

Longitude: -75.5993692 - Latitude: 38.3606736

Shape: Unknown

Distance: 500 feet or less

My friend and I had gone out camping, we had a fire going and were lying back looking at the stars. We saw a few meteors and quite a few constellations.

Then out of nowhere a large amount of the stars started moving! We were examining them and noticed that they were definitely not shooting stars.

They were moving in several different directions, turning around, zigzagging, and moving up and down, all of which a man-made craft could never accomplish in the present or even near future.

Then we witnessed a brighter lit craft blinking in accordance with a dimmer one which seemed farther out.

Then out of nowhere a faster moving craft with blinking white, red, and blue lights rapidly changing between those colors came across the sky then halted when it came to the brighter craft.

Then it continued onward ducking behind the tree line not to be seen again.

We kept watching for about another 45 minutes to an hour. Then about 50 yards from us was a HUGE unmistakable noise. It sounded like a jetliner on the ground after a long flight, but then it within a split second was completely silent.

Then upon listening further we heard it again, this happened one more time as we were trying to figure out what it was as this is a setting where we are out in the boonies with nothing like that around.

Upon the last jetliner-like noise, we then felt a heavy aura and feeling of fear, as if there was something big pouring its essence our way.

Then we heard the farmer's dogs across the way behind the tree line barking as though they sensed something bad, and almost immediately we heard a somewhat mimicking noise as though the aliens were trying to mimic the dogs, but we could tell it wasn't the dogs because it was a little different, with a lot more echo to the sound.

At this point we decided it was probably a good idea to douse the fire, pack up all our gear (I say pack up but I mean we literally just threw it all in the back seat of my friends car), then my friend said "If I don't go look, I'm going to regret it."

So after the gear was in the car I was waiting for him to come back, I got impatient with waiting fearing what could be and went to go find him.

I caught him as he was walking back in a rather fast pace as he seemed freaked out as we both were.

Then I told him to hop in the passenger seat and we left slowly trying not to make any excess noise. At this point my friend had his phone out recording just in case something else were to happen so we could capture it in video.

Nothing else happened unfortunately and I know no one will believe us, but we saw what we saw and heard what we heard and there is no doubt in my mind that aliens do in fact exist.

Thanks for reading my story and if you have any questions feel free to email me at StumpDiZ@gmail.com.

Governments Try to Call UFO Sightings Hoaxes
UFO Depiction
Published: 1:32 PM 9/2/2011

Many experts wonder as to why governments always try to call UFO sightings as hoax? But here is a report that says that governments don’t want to make their citizens fearful of actual existence of these flying machines

Unidentified objects have fascinated the world for decades. The way they appear from nowhere has made them a mystery. Their style and their alleged shape has always attracted curiosity. But so far these UFOs were always branded as hoax from scientists and aviation experts.

Now there comes an in-depth report that finally shows that scorn and questions raised by the so called aviation experts and different governments were actually aimed at making people comfortable about these things and denying the existence of any such objects.

A report that is going to appear on History Channel is exposing the extend of the government interventions and high handed attitude of the CIA in muzzling reports on the sightings and close encounters with the UFO.

Now it has emerged that US government and its secret service agencies had been trying to silence even authentic reports from pilots and asking them to forget that anything of sort happened.

Just over two decades ago there was a close encounter of Japan Airlines 747 with a group of UFO that was also recorded by air traffic control. The UFOs whose number at one time went up to three chased the aircraft for close to thirty minutes before disappearing in this air.

A former senior official of Federal Aviation John Callahan says that he had to give up all the papers about the UFO sighting that were collected by air traffic control and details provided by pilot to CIA officials who asked him to keep quite on the issue. He said that the officials said that it was necessary so as not to frighten the American public.

A Huffington Post report says that there is a spike in sightings of the Unidentified Flying Objects and more and more such sightings are brushed aside as hoax.

A reader while commenting on denial of existence of UFO says, “What I find very funny about scientist who deny these beings could travel here from some other star system is, they’re basing their assumption­s on what we currently know about science. it was no to long ago that the idea of an atomic bomb was so far-fetche­d we made fun of the people who said it was possible.N­ow take a race of being”s who could be thousands if not millions of years more advanced then we are and all bets are off”.

Oval-shaped UFO Witnessed by Many over Cyprus
UFO Depiction
Published: 4:10 PM 8/20/2011

MAY 1983 - Larnaca, Cyprus

I had two sightings in my life span, but the most intriguing and the most memorable one was in the year 1983.

I live in Larnaca, Cyprus. Larnaca is found on the south coast of Cyprus just above the Middle East and Africa. It was during the last year of High School. It was towards graduation time which would mean the end of May.

My school is situated very near the Salt Lake and there are small hills all around. Cyprus from May onwards has hot weather so all class windows were wide open.

Suddenly my attention was drawn by a very bright, shiny silver object that was hovering above a hill of 6 meters high. For a few minutes I thought I was hallucinating and was trying to determine whether it was caused due to the brightness of the sun.

The object was not round as a saucer. It was more of an oval shape and it covered the whole perimeter of the hill if not bigger than that.

Suddenly it moved sideways and hovered again. Let me say at this point that the Salt Lake is between my school and Larnaca Intl Airport. My teacher having realized my attention was drawn elsewhere, outside the window, she reprimanded me for not paying attention to my lesson.

I explained there was something unusual outside and we all gathered at our classroom balcony. My class was on the second floor. The object moved again towards the opposite side of the hill, hovered once more for several minutes.

It moved a third time seemingly on top of the hill but not exactly. Very slowly it started to move downwards behind the hill. It remained hidden a few minutes and re-appeared. It hovered for a couple of minutes as if preparing for take off. Indeed take off was carried out vertically and you could say with the speed of lightning.

The UFO disappeared within the blink of an eye.

Special thanks to Katerina. She is a facebook friend and wanted to post this sighting to World UFO Photos and News.

Multiple, Unknown Objects Seen over Sarnia, Ontario, Canada
UFO Depiction
Published: 4:53 PM 8/29/2011

Sarnia (Canada), Ontario - 08-20-11

Shape: Light

Duration: 14 minutes

Aug 20, 2011 22:00 hrs. 9 bright orange lights moving N over Michigan.

At approximately 22:00 hrs. on August 20, 2011, while I was outside in my drive way having a cigarette, I happened to look north across the school field and I saw 3 bright orange lights cresting the horizon, NNE of my location.

I could not believe what I was seeing so I ran onto my deck and up the stairs where there is a landing that gives me an unobstructed view of the northern sky, north of my residence.

Sure enough, the lights were still there and were moving slowly in a northern direction at a slow speed. I hurried back down the stairs and into the back door of my residence and called to my wife, son and daughter to come outside and look at what I was seeing.

We all went back up the stairs to my previous location, looking north and sure enough, the lights were still there, continuing to move north however, during the time of our observations, another light emerged just over the horizon and seemed to be following the previous three.

There were five more objects that followed and all four of us stood there in amazement because there was no sound to be heard, there was no pattern to their flight together at all and over the next few minutes, all of the lights faded away.

My wife captured a short video of the objects on her HD cellphone video camera, however upon review, it was nearly too difficult to see the objects given that the ambiance of the city street lights quashed anything that could clearly define our observations.

For argument sake however, I asked her to keep the video for reference if questions were ever raised about the four of us seeing the entire same occurrence.

We came into the computer room and went online and observed that these objects had already been reported by someone in Martette, MI, but they observed 15 of the objects.

Sometimes I have to be a skeptic because we do live close to the Selfridge ANG base in Mt. Clemens MI, however on the Canadian side and the orange lights would be indicative of jet engines in after-burn taking off.

however, Selfridge ANG, 127th Wing only has the A-10 on location at this base and they are a subsonic aircraft, their engines have no afterburners so the typical orange glow could not have appeared behind those aircraft, even if there was a full squadron taking off, but yet, there was no sound to the movement of these objects.

That was a very cool experience for my entire family and I simply because we are hoping there is intelligent life in outer space and in some cases more intelligent than any of the life on this planet.

Archived Case of the Week

1988 - Ralph Fuller Sighting with Video
UFO Video - 1988, Ralph Fuller
Published: 9:35 AM 9/14/2009

Gulf coast resident Ralph Fuller was the first UFO witness in 1988 to capture a UFO on tape. He was often outdoors, and frequently watched the Atlantic ocean and the sky above it.

Although he had seen just about everything that flew in the skies near his home, what he saw one day was quite different.

At first, he saw only one unidentified object in the sky.

"I don't know what that is out there over the Gulf, just a real bright light. I think it may be a flying saucer."

Then there were two, three, and more. It was like one was making duplicates of itself. After a few minutes of time, there was a total of ten UFOs as seen on his video.

The objects seemed to say in formation. Each individual object was linked to the whole.

As Fuller watched and videotaped the display over the Gulf of Mexico, he could hear no sound coming from the formation.

Fuller often watched the Gulf, and was familiar with practically all planes and boats that appeared on a regular basis.

This was during the same time frame and close to the locations of the famous Gulf Breeze Sightings.

On this particular day, however, he could see none of the usual ships or planes, only the UFO formation.

To this day, he has no explanation as to what the objects may have been.
