UFO Videotaped over Florida
UFO Video Frame Grab

Florida - 11-11-10

Ever since I had watched Alison Kruses' UFO videos I had been hooked and fascinated. I was thrown into the world of UFOs and ETs and I hoped very soon to see UFOs in my area and video tape them and hopefully do something in this world to provide disclosure.

But I had no idea what I was getting myself into.

Not that I regret it, but when I saw my first golden-fireball-type UFO sitting over the Oldsmar bridge high in the sky, I never knew that I would have anything related to close contact.

My friend Jessi and I headed to Walmart on November 11th, 2010. When I left my neighborhood, I had my first "real" UFO sighting. A golden ball of light shining way brighter than any star (We call it a "mini-sun UFO" in our group on Youtube).

I had an awesome glimpse of it going over the bridge, and I somehow had lost interest in anything else after that. Leaving Walmart, however, I saw another golden mini sun in the sky right over the parking lot to the right side. I was very amazed.

Thinking back, it was probably the same one. I had no idea at the time. This one was moving very very slowly. But I made my friend stop to observe it with me. She was also amazed. Nobody else stopped to look in the parking lot. They were too preoccupied.

It kept getting closer and closer, and the grip I had on my friend's sleeve grew tighter and tighter. And then it did something that would have confirmed to a regular person that it was a plane. Not me.

I know what they are capable of. The ball of light shone brightly. It separated into two lights, and then slowly but surely it took shape of a plane and flew directly over me. But this was NOT a plane.

The lights were changing on it. Some switched on and off, some had strobes. But there were NO green and red navigational lights on the wings-- something that is required by law that a plane has to have.

The shape of the planes suggested that it was a passenger plane. My friend might not have been convinced that it was a UFO but I was. I have seen the kind of fake plane phenomena before. I was prepared.

We left to go to Hess. We stopped at a light and there was another mini sun UFO sitting in the sky. This time I had my camera. I was fully prepared. I had never seen this type of golden light before in the sky. I have lived here for 23 years by two airports and this is NOT normal.

After the light turned green and I was recording, we took a left turn and the ball started following the car. A little bit behind the car, but it kept perfect pace with the car. In the video, I wasn't surprised by that because I was 100% sure that they were following me.

After we stopped at another light, the golden lighted UFO turned to fly over us, took shape of a plane and flew away.

After that night, I started to be "followed."

The next night, November 12th, 2010, I went to the gas station with my boyfriend who was driving. There was a ball of light in perfect view of the station. I got it on camera. It hovered for 8 minutes, then started very slowly moving and then started flashing like a regular aircraft and flew away.

On our way up to New Port Richey, when we were passing a woodsy area in Trinity, I saw another ball of light. This one keeping pace with the car. That is on the same video as the one at the gas station.

The ball of light following our car side-by-side until it started flashing like they normally do and flew off overhead.

November 13th, I go searching by myself with my camera, and as soon as I get outside and into my car, I see a white orb-like UFO spit a smaller white orb out of its back end and fall to the ground. This was high in the sky so I couldn't drive towards it.

That is where I became frightened.

I was starting to see these UFOs in my neighborhood. I went on my merry way. When I got to the outer side of the semi circle (my house is on the inner circle) of the neighborhood, I saw two white lights kind of tilted sitting in the sky. They couldn't have been headlights-- they were too far apart.

I tried to fumble around with my camera but I couldn't get it to work. I drove hurriedly to the shopping center to see if I could get it on film as it passed over and I pulled my camera out just in time to film the fly-over.

This fly-over was very different. It didn't look like a plane. It had two with lights far apart, two in the middle close together, and one on the side. That is when I started to put two-and-two together--they were following me.

Every night after that, my sightings have increased. When I step outside of my house, there are two golden mini-sun UFOs sitting in the sky perfectly to where they can see me. If I had to describe how they are capable of this, I would say that they can zoom in so far from such a distance that they can see everything you do.

Not only that ,but they can change their appearance to make it look like they are far away, when it reality they are much, much closer. When I get in my car to go somewhere, the golden lights follow me.

They are always visible in my car. Sometimes it will looks like they are coming towards me when I am driving. When I get to a red light or a stop sign, the craft stops in mid air.

When I take either a left turn or right turn, the craft also does so - a maneuver impossible for a regular aircraft. These crafts do not change lights when they turn. It looks like a plane that suddenly goes sideways.

Everywhere I go, they are there. The golden lights. I will try and show my friends but they all think they are planes. Because the craft are capable of blinking like a plane, everyone assumes they are planes. But the blinks are irregular.

Sometimes the blinking even stops for a few seconds and then continues. The lights constantly change numbers and colors and blinks. That is a violation of the aviation code.

I believe they UFOs are covered by a forced-sphere which allows them to shrink or expand their size. It also allows them to project holograms of any type of craft as well as take the form of any type of craft.

They are anti-gravity and are capable of any kind of aerial maneuver possible. They can mimic the sound of the type of craft and change the lights on the type of craft also.

That brings me to my close contact sighting.

One day I was sitting in my house. The whole day I had heard a helicopter outside. All day this helicopter must have been flying around outside because the sound wouldn't stop.

I had a hunch. I wondered if these UFOs wanted me to come outside so they were making a lot of noise. After all, if they can take different shapes, I thought, it would be easier for them to project sound.

I finally got sick of the noise. I remember saying "Alright. Alright I'm coming." out loud as I headed to the door. It was 4:30 pm.

I walked outside and there was a helicopter in the sky pointing towards me where the usual golden light ball was. I looked right up at it and it flew away.

A few hours later, my boyfriend and I were heading to our friend's house in Clearwater, somewhere between the 14th and the 19th on November, 2010, about 8 PM, we are about to pull up to the house when I see the biggest golden light I've seen so far.

It must have been hovering the next street over. I looked directly at it and the light then dove very, very fast into the trees the next street over and hid.

I could see him through the trees. I yelled out loud because I had never seen such a thing in all of my life. It actually dove into the trees. I didn't have my camera that night, but when I got out of my car a giant helicopter came from the direction of where the golden light dove and flew over me.

I couldn't see the helicopter, only the lights and I could hear the sound. It must have shape-shifted.

I tried to call out of it to tell it that I didn't want it to go, and then one minute later the helicopter came back over the neighborhood and back to where the golden light I saw was. Then two minutes later the helicopter came back over me and flew off.

I heard the sound of a faint plane in the distance. A plane. And right as I was walked to my friend's garage, a plane that was about 3 stories from the ground flew over the neighborhood very fast and very low.

It looked like an all gray plane with one engine and no windows. It had one red light on the left wing. The sound it made was very irregular for how low and close it was. I thought I was seeing things.

Then 5 minutes later, the helicopter came from where the gold light ball had been and flew over me for a third time, but this time it sounded like a plane and not a helicopter.

It was as if I was looking at a helicopter and hearing a plane. Very strange.

A Memorial to Fallen UFOs
UFO Depiction
Published: 8:16 AM 12/4/2010

Posted by Michael Winter

In Ukraine, UFO enthusiasts want to build a memorial to "fallen aliens" who have died during their alleged Earthly encounters, the Russia-based news channel RT tells us.

These "ufologists" are collecting money for their extraterrestrial monument in the historic northern city of Berdichev, the project's organizer, Aleksandr Nalisman, told a local newspaper.

RT recounts that report, writing that aliens "usually became the victims of different catastrophes," including "a jet fighter [that] collided with a UFO in 1997 in the ancient city of Kherson."

The source says the UFO's pieces were taken by Ukrainian soldiers for examination.

Later, they succeeded in bringing down six more UFOs. It helped them "begin constructing its analogue."

Whether the scientists have found the remains of the fallen UFO pilots is not known.

Nalisman issued his call for remembrance because "people of Earth have not paid attention to the lives of the aliens."

The 1945 San Antonio UFO Crash: The Reme Baca and Jose Padilla Witness Case
UFO Depiction
Published: 2:14 PM 11/29/2010

By Paola Leopizzi Harris

Born on the edge of Ground Zero, living in the shadow of Area 51, two little Hispanic children experienced an extraordinary event.

Jose Padilla, age 9, and Reme Baca, age 7, witnessed a saucer crash on Padilla land in the town of San Antonio, New Mexico. They were witness to one of the most spectacular events in UFO history.

This new book entitled, Born the Edge of Ground Zero, Living in the Shadow of Area 51, will be released February 2011 and is Jose Padilla’s and Reme Baca’s detailed account of what happened in their childhood.

They explain what they saw; the actual crash, the creatures' appearances, the pieces they took, the military clean up, and an in-depth analysis of the significance of this case.

First printed in The Mountain Mail, Soccorro, New Mexico, on November 2, 2003 by journalist Ben Moffet, the case was passed to me, journalist/researcher, Paola Harris, in May 4, 2009.

The desire to finally disclose the details and the kind invitation of Reme Baca, led me to fly to Gig Harbor in Washington State in the Northern part of the United States to interview witness Reme Baca and his wife, Virginia in July 2010.

Consequently because he now lives in California, I interviewed Jose Padilla by telephone from the Baca house. During my two-day stay, I was able to see and photograph the piece that Jose extracted from the craft and study the detailed analysis of its composition done in Europe.

It is one of the most astounding cases I have ever covered in my career, and it helps complete the puzzle of why there has been so many crash retrievals in New Mexico.

With journalist Ben Moffet, who so beautifully describes the cover-up – we can begin to see where it fits in UFO history.

It was in this crucible of suspicion and disinterest bred by familiarity that a small contingent of the U.S. Army passed almost unnoticed through San Antonio in mid-to-late August, 1945 on a secret assignment.

Little or nothing has been printed about the mission, shrouded in the “hush-hush” atmosphere of the time. But the military detail apparently came from White Sands Proving Grounds to the east where the bomb was exploded.

It was a recovery operation destined for the mesquite and greasewood desert west of Old US-85, at what is now Milepost 139, the San Antonio exit of Interstate 25.

Over the course of several days, soldiers in Army fatigues loaded the shattered remains of a flying apparatus onto a huge flatbed truck and hauled it away.

That such an operation took place between about Aug. 20 and Aug. 25, 1945, there is no doubt, insist two former San Antonioans, Remigio Baca and Jose Padilla, eyewitnesses to the event. Padilla, then age 9, and Baca, 7, secretly watched much of the soldiers’ recovery work from a nearby ridge.

Thanks to the work of Ben Moffet, and now thanks to the witnesses themselves, currently in their 70’s, the world will know see that there was certain extraterrestrial interest in our discovery of the atomic bomb.

It opened up a Pandora’s box in human history that cannot easily be closed. It put humanity and possibly other dimensional visitors in danger of total destruction. San Antonio was more than a crash, a sighting – an event. It was a warning that the military today is not heeding, whether it is in the US, or abroad.

If we add the courageous testimony Air Force panel led by Robert Hastings and seven retired USAF officers at the Washington Press Club on September 27th of 2010, then we realize the time has come to speak.

If these visitors have the capacity of UFOs to either disable or shoot down our nuclear missiles, then we can see that 70 years later, they are taking action.

Ultimately, the 1945 San Antonio case presents a peaceful message, a powerful warning to the planet.

NASA: Extraterrestrial Life Discovery is a Big Deal - Really
Unknown Worlds Depiction
Published: 6:50 PM 12/3/2010

BY FRED TASKER - ftasker@MiamiHerald.com

In a much-anticipated -- and for many, disappointing -- announcement, NASA said it found microbes that can use arsenic as one of the building blocks of its DNA.

The NASA announcement created an enormous Internet buzz: The space agency was going to reveal Thursday "an astrobiology finding that will impact the search for evidence of extraterrestrial life.''

Was the government about to say it had found liquid water on a moon of Jupiter? Microbes on Mars? Something even stranger -- say, ET?

Sci-fi bloggers speculated the announcement "could prove the existence of aliens'' or "the theory of shadow creatures that exist in tandem with our own.''

But then the announcement came and it was about . . . bacteria right here on Earth.

At a 2 p.m. news conference streamed live over the Web, scientists at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration said they found microbes in the mud beneath a California lake that can use arsenic -- usually considered toxic -- rather than phosphorus as one of the building blocks of its DNA. Phosphorus is one of the elements that sustains all other life forms on earth.

After their great anticipation, sci-fi fans were told the discovery might help cut pollution of waterways like Lake Okeechobee by replacing the phosphorus in fertilizers that run off into the lake, creating fish-choking algae blooms.

One of the NASA researchers acknowledged the frustration after the build-up: "I can see you're disappointed, that some of you were expecting walking, talking aliens,'' said Felisa Wolfe-Simon, a NASA astrobiology researcher and co-author of the study.

"It would be incredible to announce that we have found an alien. But from our understanding of biology, this is a phenomenal finding. You're taking the fundamental building blocks of life and replacing one of them with another compound.''

She even tried to put a sci-fi spin on it: "This is the equivalent of the Star Trek episode in which they found life forms on a distant planet that substituted silica for carbon in their basic makeup.

"Maybe we can find ET now because we have a better idea of what we're looking for.''

After the news conference, a University of Miami scientist good-naturedly speculated on what Thursday's announcement might mean for the shape of life on other planets.

"This is a pretty big deal,'' said Athula Wikramanayake, a UM expert in evolutionary biology. "We've always believed that the basic elements needed for life are carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, sulfur and phosphorus,'' he said.

On a planet whose atmosphere is rich in arsenic, "we wouldn't expect anything resembling humanoids. It's very unlikely they would look like humans."

Wikramanayake agreed with famed physicist Stephen Hawking, who in a newspaper interview in May pointed out that any aliens who arrive on earth from billions of miles away logically will be far more advanced than planet-bound earthlings.

"If aliens ever visit us,'' Hawking warned, "I think the outcome would be much as when Columbus first landed in America -- which didn't turn out very well for the Native Americans.''

"It's possible,'' said Wikramanayake.

"Some planets are billions of years older than earth. They've had a lot of time to evolve.''

Does he agree such aliens would be hostile?

He left a ray of hope: "It's hard to say whether they would be as aggressive as humans. Humans evolved because of tribal fighting. Aliens might not have the same social history.''

Russ Kellet to Speak on UFO Sightings
Russ Kellett
Published: Thu Dec 02 09:29:45 GMT 2010

SCARBOROUGH will be making international headlines after it was revealed that the area has become the latest hotspot for UFO sightings.

Russ Kellett, a Filey-based UFO investigator, will be interviewed by a major American broadcaster and a Japanese TV station in the wake of the revelations.

He will be interviewed for ABC News after the station spotted a recent story in the Evening News.

He said: “They seemed to be really interested. They said they had seen me on the internet and were really interested in my story. They contacted me because of your article.”

The article was published last month and offered a possible explanation for an unusual sight in the sky above Osgodby. A video had appeared on a national newspaper’s website which showed a strange formation moving about.

Mr Kellett said at the time that he had witnessed similar sightings in the past and the phenomenon was caused by flocks of birds.

He said: “North Yorkshire is a hotspot. We’ve had just as many sightings here as other areas which have been hotspots. These areas change from time to time. You will get a lot of things going on and then it will cool off.”

As well as recent sightings, Mr Kellett will be talking about historic sightings from this area including the Silpho Saucer in the 1950s and when a jet fighter crashed off Flamborough Head in 1970.

The small saucer was said to have landed near Silpho in November 1957 and was said to have been witnessed by three men.

The object was reported to have weighed 35lb, was 18in in diameter and covered in strange symbols. It was claimed the saucer also contained a copper book, with 17 thin sheets, which were covered in more than 2,000 words.

It was later proved to have been a hoax and it was believed to have been built in a workshop in a back street off North Marine Road.

The Lighning jet fighter was piloted by Captain William Schaffner of the United States Air Force – a vastly experienced pilot with combat experience behind him in Vietnam.

He reported seeing a strange object flying alongside him before he ditched in the North Sea. When the wreckage was recovered, a month later, the cockpit was empty and no trace of the pilot’s body could be found.

Mr Kellett has organised two UFO conferences in the Scarborough area and agreed that reported sightings in this area had increased over recent months but added that verifying their authenticity was more difficult in the age of email.

He said: “When it was handwritten you had something solid and you could still check a person’s identity.”

Mr Kellett said that it was more difficult to check an anonymous email. He added: “I don’t take their reports seriously if you can’t get back to that person on a landline I don’t want to know.”

He first became interested in the subject after he experienced a “close encounter” in West Yorkshire, in 1988, when he was at a level crossing.

He said: “I was hit by a beam of light. I was on my motorbike and it was coming from above. I thought it was my friend messing about. I looked round and there was nothing.

“Then I realised that the light was coming down from the sky.”

At the time he thought nothing more of the event until the next day at work when people asked if he had seen himself in the mirror – his face and hands were completely sunburned.

Archived Case of the Week

The Belgium UFO Wave

 UFO over Petit Rechain, Belgium

Of all the reports of UFO sightings, some of the most intriguing ones are those which come in flaps, or waves, have multiple witnesses, and photographs. One of the most celebrated cases of this type was the Belgian flap which began in November of 1989.

The events of November 29 would be documented by no less than thirty different groups of witnesses, and three separate groups of police officers. All of the reports described a large object flying at low altitude. The craft was of a flat, triangular shape, with lights underneath.

This giant craft made not a sound as it slowly and fearlessly moved across the landscape of Belgium. There was free sharing of information as the Belgian populace tracked this craft as it moved from the town of Liege to the border of the Netherlands and Germany.

This first startling sighting would evolve into a wave over the next several months. On two occasions, a pair of F-16 fighters chased the mysterious object, but to no avail. On March 30, 1990, a frantic call to military headquarters came from a Belgian national police Captain.

He marveled at a giant triangle passing over, and simultaneously two ground radar stations were reporting an object of unknown origin on their screens. One of these bases was NATO controlled near the city of Glons, southeast of Brussels.

After contacting other radar facilities, they learned that at least four other stations were also reporting the object on their screens. The object was moving across their screens slowly, and failed to send a transponder signal to identify itself.

Two F-16s were ordered to intercept and identify this phenomena, and one of the jet's radars locked the object in. It appeared as a small diamond on the pilot's screen.

The pilot reported that only a few seconds after locking on the target, the object began to pick up speed, quickly moving out of radar range. An hour long chase ensued, during which time the F-16s picked up the strange craft's signal two additional times, only to see it fade from view.

The triangular craft seemed to be playing a cat and mouse game, and finally was lost in the night lights of Brussels.

The pilots of the fighters reported that the UFO had made maneuvers at speeds beyond the capability of their technology, and once the radar showed the craft drop from 10,000 to 500 feet in 5 seconds!

Belgium Map

The extraordinary sightings continued for months as the triangular invader was witnessed more than 1,000 times, both day and night. The object dipped low enough to easily be seen with the naked eye, and the event became one of the biggest stories in the Belgian media.

Another unusual occurrence associated with the Belgian flap was the inability to take a clear photograph of it. Many observers had their cameras ready, and took what they thought would be clear images, but when the film was developed, the image was blurred, and the craft's outline was vague at best.

This anomaly was addressed by physics professor Auguste Meessen, who was employed by the Catholic University at Louvin. Meessen's investigation produced a theory that infrared light must be the reason that almost all the images were unclear. To put his theory to test, he exposed film to infrared, then photographed objects in regular light. The results were the same as the photographs of the triangle-shaped UFO.

One good image was finally captured on video tape in April 1990. This image showed the underbelly of the craft with spotlights on the three corners. A still frame from this tape has been seen worldwide, and is a classic UFO photograph.

The Belgium wave has obtained classic status in UFO lore. With over 1,000 witnesses, confirmed radar sightings, plane radar lock-ins, and military confirmations, the fact that an unknown craft moved across the country of Belgium cannot be denied.

The case is also important for its unique information sharing. Civilian and Military officials were forthcoming with the reports, and set a model for others to follow in their pursuit to uncover the mystery behind the UFO enigma.
