Trucker Reports Saucer UFO Over I-20 in Forth Worth- 07/09/2007

*

*
In a report submitted to MUFON, a truck driver claims that on July 9, 2007, he witnessed a "football field" sized disc/saucer-shaped UFO, just north of I-20 in south Fort Worth.

The witness claims that the saucer UFO shot a blue beam of light into his cab, that he could actually see occupants in the craft and that it then sped off across the highway and into the sky, leaving steaks of light.

Here is that unedited report:



Fort Worth, Texas
07/09/2007    

Observed craft come south then followed I-20 heading east    

On the nite of the new moon in july of 2007 I was on duty at the ATX truck yard it was after midnite and my shift was over, we had just began to chenge over and something appeared over the northern horizon and it appeared to look like the moon but comming from the north I ignored it then realized that is not where th moon comes up from but it was kind of glowing it rose up on the horizon like the moon would very slowly but it had a kind of red orange glow to it. I watched it for a while then just ignored it and began my long trip home,heading east on I-20 from west FT Worth. As I pulled out to I-20 I got a full view of the craft from the back. It was saucer shapped about 2 stories high with a wide mettal band in the middle with 5 rows of colored flashing lighs blinking and shifting it would pulsate then the lights would change colors the rows of lights would shift directions bink and the change the patern again the road was always almost empty so I slowd down to observe the object. It floated on what looked like black fumes,It made no noise and as I got closer I could hear the chinook helicopters! I thought OK this must be a collage hoax, so I sped up to observe form the side of the craft then the top of the craft began to rotateI thought wow what great trick but I didnt see the choppers but I could hear them in the didtance the rotation just turned about 30 degrees and stopped. the whole time I was driving slowly observing the craft. It stayed on the north side of I-20 flying in a nap of the earth fassion just then a blue beam of light laser like came through my car it was a pinpoint and came through the car straight through but didnt damage anything the beam centerd in my car then rotated over to me then flattened out from a pinpoint to a flat wide beam. The beam centerd on me then began to go up and down my body,no heat no noise it made an up and down pass then went back to a point then blinked out. then I was just befuttled about thes so I sped up faster to pass up the vehicle and as I watched it I could observe an observation deck which was wide open I cuold see 6 occupants,4 greys and 2 realy tall differant types they were tall with white silver hair and they were observing the road ahead and holding hands with the greys like parents comforting children. After I saw this I slowed down even more the craft kept moving up and dowh and alternating with the elevation of the land and I could still hear the choppers in the distance I observed the craft as we came to a populated area so I stayed paralel with the craft as long as I could. I observed the craft move ove a lighted football field and so I thought OK it is a Hoax the craft was larger in diamiter than a Football field! the craft then crossed the highway and proceeded in a south/southeast direction,then as more traffic became visible the craft moved in an unimaginable speed leaving streeks of lite as it left.

Lights Over Monroe, GA Reported To CNN

*
*
See Video

A witness in Monroe, Georgia saw and recorded these strange lights. 

The witness immediately reported this event to CNN and was told they were the only person to report it.   5 minutes later, multiple aircraft show up and the strange lights disappeared.

Here is that unedited report that was submitted to MUFON.


Monroe, Georgia
02/25/2012


THIS WAS JUST RECORDED ON 02/25/2012 OVER GEORGIA. WE WITNESSED IT AT ABOUT 7:20 IT LASTED FOR ABOUT 30 MINS. CONTACTED CNN AND REPORTED IT. 20 -30 GOVERNMENT AIRCRAFTS RESPONDED TO THE LIGHTS IN THE SKY BUT CNN SAID NO ONE ELSE REPORTED IT.

1.Leaving walmart
2 i noticed them because of their star like objects were so bright and extremely low
3i thought they were stars at first glance but soon discovered it not to be.
4 first they was stationary around a particularly dark cloud. then one separated itself from the rest and the rest formed sort of a triangle shape but not exactly. at this time they were still at the same altitude as they were when i first noticed them. the last formation they made was a horizontal line. after about 30 mins and then we left.
5 during the sighting i called cnn and made a report. five mins upon ending the call, 20-30 aircrafts were in the same airspace as the starlike objects. to me that was to many to be i that small area of sky. i know that they were aircrafts because of the flashing lights used by plans and helicopters at night. if they werent ufos then why so many aircrafts to the response. also the cnn woman said i was the only person to report this. i lose sight of the object when all the aircrafts came to the area. we left from the scene after my cousin reminding us of prior engagements.

LITS NEWS: Planet Alignment Tonight; Rogue Planets; Space Elevator

*
Planet Alignment: Jupiter, Venus and more, tonight!
*
The planets as seen on February 24, 2012 (early evening).

*
I saw something last night that was simply awesome... Jupiter and Venus lined up with the moon.

I pulled out my smart phone, pulled up my app called Google Sky Map (how did I ever live without it?) and not only did it show Jupiter and Venus lined up to my west, it also showed Uranus and Mercury (below the moon). 

To the far east was Mars, just beginning to rise above the horizon.  Now how cool is that?

What you can't see until much later, is Saturn. You'll have to wait till late night/ early morning to get a view of the ringed planet.

But wait, more to come!  Tonight should be quite a spectacle.  Please check this out at Space.com:
Jupiter, Venus & Moon Line Up This Weekend: How to Watch Online

And for you astronomy buffs out there, I just have to add the Baton Rouge Astronomical Society website, it's awesome.

So be sure to check out the night sky tonight and if you can't, you will still be able to see it live-online and in photos!

Nomad Alien Planets May Fill Our Milky Way Galaxy

Our Milky Way galaxy may be teeming with rogue planets that ramble through space instead of being locked in orbit around a star, a new study suggests.

These "nomad planets" could be surprisingly common in our bustling galaxy, according to researchers at the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology (KIPAC), a joint institute of Stanford University and the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. The study predicts that there may be 100,000 times more of these wandering, homeless planets than stars in the Milky Way.

Space Elevator, Going Up

According to The Daily Yomiuri, Tokyo construction company, Obayashi Corporation, hopes to erect a space elevator by 2050. As a doff of the cap to our British readers, the space lift would ferry passengers and cargo along a carbon nanotube ribbon from a terrestrial terminal to a spaceport nearly a quarter of the way to the moon.

NUFORC Case #  S87072
Occurred : 2/6/2012 20:52
Location: Fort Irwin, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 10 min
Triangle Shape Object With About 14 Orange Lights

My back yard is looking into the training area here (Known as the box). I was looking over towards the training city of Abu Layla and saw this group of bright orange lights. Looked to be about 14 or more lights in a triangle form. The lights were just hovering above the road out there. After 10 minutes of watching this the lights headed east towards the I15 freeway and you could see the glow of this object silhouette the mountains. When it took off it had to be going faster then 600mph because it only took about 5 seconds for it to disappear (figuring the speed by the time and distance). When it took off it went from a stand still position. This is my 3rd time seeing it here in the same spot. I work in this area every day, and there is nothing but Desert out there. I have 2 pictures I took with a Point and Shoot camera, but they came out blurry due to the distance and are not 'really' helpful.

            *

NUFORC Case # S87089
Occurred : 2/7/2012 18:40
Location: Rancho Mirage, CA
Shape: Circle
Duration: 30 minutes+

Watched a flying object over Bob Hope Drive with my sister. There was quite a few cars on the road so I'm sure others saw it, too. Followed it as it got further and further away. It was flying in a circular motion for quite a while - as we parked along a secluded road to watch it in disbelief.

Flew further away (Easterly direction).

The craft had lights along its circular border and one red light on top. It had the shape of a toy spinner/spinner top.

((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous; provides no contact information. We suspect an evening sighting, but we may be wrong. PD)

            *               *               *

Hey folks, if you are serious enough to report a UFO sighting to me, or to NUFORC, or other reputable UFO investigation organizations, please give the hard working ufologists your contact info, so they can verify your sighting's information.  They aren't going to hound you, or post your name or personal info without permission.  I certainly don't! -Sunny

Dublin, Ranger and Lipan, Texas UFO Reports For 2/21/2012

*
Click on map for larger view.

Recent UFO sightings reports from North Central Texas.

Please note that these reports are posted here, "as is", with no corrections.


Location: Dublin, Texas
Date: 02/21/2012
Time: 18:35

Four bright lights in the shape of a parollelogram were sitting stationary for a few seconds then one disappeared and after the first one disappeared the others vanished immediately after it. What made us look into the sky was a jetlike noise or hum.    

My family and I traveled to Dublin TX from Strawn for a girls play-off basketball game and arrived 25 minutes early. It was like 6:35 pm and we had all just gotten out of the car. When we started to head to the gymnasium doors we both heard a jetlike humming noise and I looked up and pointed out to my husband what were four very bright lights and said, "stars during the day". He looked up at them and said yeah we looked at one another like NO. Then the top left one disappeared first and the others right behind it along with the noise. We were floored. Weve heard what people say they have seen and now were part of it. When we entered the gym the lady taking our money I was assuming was a local so I told her and she didnt look at us like we were crazy at all. Her exact words were, "I know people who have seen them too but I have to witness it". Then my husband told a friend of his walking in and with the response he got we vowed not to say another word about it for that time being. Since we have called KSTV radio station and asked if anyone else out there saw this to to please call in and got no response. So that leaves me here searching on the web and reading a sighting in the same area the same night only and hour later than ours. It is exciting! Thank you for letting us share our story and see what others are seeing out there!

Dublin Sighting 2/21/2012

Confirming unusual lights in the sky Feb 21st, NE of Dublin. As my husband and I were driving into Bluff Dale, TX last night at approximately 7:30pm, we both saw a row of four unusual lights moving SW. The lights were on and then went off and returned briefly and then disappeared.


[Note:  Is it possible that what these witnesses saw was actually flares dropped by the military?  These sightings areas are in, or near the Brownwood MOA. -SW]

The witness does not elaborate in this report, that was submitted to MUFON.

Lack of information and the alleged photographic "proof" leave a lot to be desired.

Upon examination of the photo, it appears that the direction of the sun and the shading of the building do not match the highlighted area of the object.

Assessment: Evidence is inconclusive. -Sunny

Dublin Sighting 2/21/2012

*
I just received this in the comments, a report of lights over Dublin, Texas.

This report is unedited.


Dublin, Texas
2/21/2012


I saw non-typical lights in the sky last night, which I could not explain. (Feb 21, 2012) I was outside my apt. in Dublin, Tx. when I happened to notice twinkling lights, at first glance I thought it at best a helicopters, too low to be planes. Then I saw a light, just appear, bright like a street lamp, not a spot light, then it "went" out, I thought 'wow that was wierd' then it "turned" on again and 4-5 more "turned" on all in a row. Evenly spaced apart. And as I recall, each light had a dark spot in them...? Then they "went" out. I was talking to my friend at the time and I kept saying, "Ithink I see a UFO" and said get a camera! so after I saw the "string" of lights, I went in a get my camera; when I came back outside I only saw faint twinklings, but it was still strange to me. I was able to catch either smaller lights or farther away lights, that lit up one at a time in a triangle formation; I called a different friend who had been in the area quite a bit longer than me, and he said it was more than likely militry flairs, military manuvers. I used to be 11c (mortar man) USArmy so Ive fired many allumination rounds in many different designs, but the thing is allum rounds, burn, like a small blaze, and the don't have the ability to turn off and on and appear like a solid light...? If your interested in the clip of the trinangle, post something so get ahold of me, thanx


In a separate comment, the witness asks: "How do you add video clip?

Well, the answer is: You can't post a video in comments, so send it to me via email.  I'll post it here.   -Sunny

Small Orbs and Twinkling Lights Perplexes One Austin Resident

Original depiction by Sunny Williams/LITS.
*


*

An Austin resident had a very unusual experience on May 4, 2011, that has her perplexed to this day. 

She wrote to me and we have both been hoping for a report from someone else in Austin, who might have seen these small glowing orbs.

Here is her most recent report, which she recently submitted to MUFON:


Austin, Texas
2011-05-04

May 4th, 2011 near dusk while watching television and facing open window, noticed movement outside. Noticed two orbs flying synchronously by window. Yellow orange glowing orb of about tennis ball size accompanied by red smaller orb. Red orb was partially obscured by yellow orb. Both seemingly solid objects glowed though I did not note reflected light on ground outside window or glare on window panes. Objects traveled approx north to south in straight unwavering line approx 2-3 feet high over yard. Exact speed unknown though approximately that of a fast walk .. enough for me to note inside house through window and observe colors, size and direction and general position over the ground and just past my porch.

No observable physiological or psychological effect on myself or missing time. Unable to note further path of object as it was gone by the time I made it to window, though oddly, within thirty seconds of object passing -white- fireflies began to rise all over yard. Fireflies in this area tend to be yellowish in color and very few are noted at once in one area. Approx 10-15 were noted rising in small backyard area. Orbs seen were NOT fireflies, remained lit or glowing entire 6-10 seconds of view time and were simply too large to be considered phosphorescent bugs.

My first thought isnt remembered though several things passed my mind in quick succession. I, rather wonderingly considered them potential probes of some sort or some sort of unknown flight-capable object. I dismissed the thought of tennis or children's balls having been tossed over a neighboring fence as they flew parallel to the ground ( no arc whatsoever was noted in their path)and were within 25-30 feet of where I sat. My window is wide and some sort of arc would have been noted or likely the bounce of one of them, had they been thrown objects. Their height from the ground was wrong for this as well, due to the height of the fence that abuts that side of the yard. By the time I saw them, they were at least 12-15 feet away from the 6 foot fenceline and flew in a straight line, not 2-3 feet over the earth. No balls were found afterwards. Fireflies were also dismissed due to the continuously glowing nature of the objects and their varying colors. The white lights that I assumed to be fireflies that rose afterwards were white in color, very wispy in nature and tended to fly slowly upwards, their lights diminishing within a small second or two as they rose. I am also familiar with spirit lights or orbs of the paranormal genre though these did not seem transparent and did not meander in their path as most depictions of such orbs are said to do.

My feelings? I was rather shocked though intrigued and curious. I felt -no- fear strangely enough though kept my seat for a long few seconds after it passed. Though I was not exactly fearful I was cautious and sat there long enough for it to, hopefully, make its way out of my backyard. Just before I rose, I noticed the fireflies beginning to rise so grabbed up my cell phone, called a friend who is interested in such things and watched the fireflies rise as I told him about the possible sighting.

I later exited the house and looked for any sign of the things though by this time the sun was down and, despite my porch lights illuminating the porch outside, I could see little. There were no other signs left by the next day or so, either on the ground under its basic flight path or on the fences to either side that abut my yard.

I later reported this to a local Texas based investigator.

San Angelo, Texas: UFO Spotted Near Aircraft

*

San Angelo, Texas
Date: 2012-02-17
Attributes: very bright very fast moving pulsating red light

Observed aircraft then noticed UFO heading toward aircraft, UFO then changed direction.

Stepped out to back yard to have a smoke and noticed a aircraft (plane)traveling at approx. 40 deg. moving E. to W. at reg. commercial height 30-35,000 ft.
Then scanned sky and noticed a very bright very fast moving pulsating red light. This object was moving from a WNW to E direction and upon getting within a half mile or so from airplane made a very sharp turn to the SSE in under a second. If I had blinked I would have not seen the turn. The object seemed to be under the airplanes altitude but not by much from my vantage point.It seemed to turn to go under the plane . I then ran in the back door and grabbed my binoculars and ran out the front to try and see what this was, I didn't have time to get the camera.
Looking at it I noticed
1. It had no regular type running lights and pulsated very slowly from bright red to a dim orange/yellow.
2. It was moving two to three times the speed of the oncoming aircraft.
3.It made no noise that I could hear.I could hear the airplane as it passed by after the object was gone from sight.
4. It should have made a sonic boom but did not.
5.This object was completely out of sight in less than a minute (commercial aircraft take several minutes from in sight to out of sight)
6.The size of the light was much bigger than the whole airplane.
7.The pilot of the aircraft must have seen this,due to the brightness and close proximity of said object.
After watching the light go out of sight at 20 deg. or so I returned to the back yard and could see and hear the airplane (jet) and watched it for a few seconds then went to explain to the family why I was acting like a crazy person.
Hope this was helpful and maybe the pilot of the aircraft will come forward , but we both know that is not likely. Feel free to call my cell if you have any questions. Thanks.......

Aliens Calling

*

*

Mysterious signal may have been alien call


MSN.com- Extraterrestrial life expert Robert Gray has scoured the (literal) ends of the universe to solve the mystery of the "Wow!" signal. Almost 35 years ago, a radio telescope in Ohio recorded an abnormally urgent signal -- so abnormal, and so strong, that a scientist noted it with a handwritten "Wow!" on a printout of the data. Was this, at last, incontrovertible proof of intelligent alien life? Gray tells The Atlantic that the signal -- "a tug on the cosmic fishing line" -- might represent a sweeping alien call, similar to the beam emitted from a lighthouse: "To operate a beacon that is on all the time, broadcasting in all directions -- the amount of power is enormous," Gray says. "[Aliens] might use some other cheaper strategy -- brief periodic broadcasting, [like] a sweeping lighthouse beam."

What Went "BOOM" Over South Carolina?

Exploding UFO Wakes Thousands in SC (Video)

Story by Tom Rose
Originally posted 2/14/2012

A streaking flash of blue light, what many witnesses are calling a UFO, burst over the midnight skies of South Carolina early on Monday morning. What was it? No one really knows, but the object, caught on tape, has astronomers trying to allay fears in a nervous public.

The unidentified flying object was caught on a home security cam, reflected in the window of a parked car, and a nighttime sky camera which showed the UFO blasting through the sky trailed by a flashing tail.

Local astronomers were immediately consulted and tried to allay public fears by saying the OVNI was probably a comet or meteorite, even though such celestial phenomenon are usually well-known and expected by the time an object of this size burns up in the atmosphere.

Still, one local resident, interviewed by the local FOX affiliate in the video below, admits she was scared and wondered for just a moment if it was "aliens" attacking.

Here's the video:

What do you think? Why weren't scientists aware this UFO was streaking through the sky beforehand? Is it a comet or meteorite?

Loud Explosion, Lights In Sky Over Upstate Investigated

Local Astronomer Suspects It May Have Been A Meteor

The National Weather Service and emergency dispatchers from across the Upstate say they got numerous calls overnight from people who heard a loud explosion that was followed by lights streaking across the sky.NWS staffers said they got a call from Greenville police around 2 a.m. They said after they started getting calls, they checked the security camera at the National Weather Service and saw a faint, barely recognizable flash of light at 1:42 a.m.

A NWS representative told News 4 it may have been a meteor, but that his agency does not investigate these events.NASA would be the source to confirm meteor activity. The agency has not yet returned a call to News 4.In Spartanburg County alone, dispatchers took about 75 calls, and reports are coming in from as far away as Lexington, N.C. and Carrollton, Ga.Firefighters with the Reidville fire department in Spartanburg County witnessed the light show first hand. They told News 4 it happened at about 1:55 a.m..Retired astronomer Doug Gegen did not see the light in the sky, but he said based on what he is hearing from everybody, it sounds like it was an unusual meteor."People saw a lot of lights in the sky, but what does that mean really? Well, it means that probably there was some kind of thing happening that was out of the ordinary," said Gegen.Gegen said the event was different than annual meteor showers such as the Leonids, which peak every November.

Cleveland County worker witnesses reported meteor explosion


SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Chuck Jones awoke when he felt his house shake early Monday. The sound of a boom followed a tremor that shook his house around 1:30 a.m.

Jones, who works at Putnam Distributors in Patterson Springs, assumed the noise came from workers at a nearby rock quarry.

Jones said his brother called him around noon Monday. Quarry workers weren’t responsible for the tremors that rocked Jones’ home.

A meteor, which some experts say exploded, possibly did.

“I’ve watched meteors before on the science channel, but not here in South Carolina,” Jones mentioned.

Scientific experts are saying a meteor exploded above upstate South Carolina, causing the loud boom. Multiple media outlets reported residents seeing a bright flash of blue-white light at the same time. Locals took to Facebook, recounting the loud boom and describing the bright light.

No known injuries or damage had been reported as of Monday afternoon.

 “I didn’t see the light,” Jones said. “But the boom sounded like the crack of thunder.”

Phone calls to scientists and astronomical groups Monday weren’t returned in time for this story.

Jones admits he was shocked when his brother told him about the meteor explosion.

“I’ve watched meteors before on the science channel, but not here in South Carolina,” he said. “I’ve lived in Blacksburg for 54 years.”

Casa Grande, AZ Residents Followed By Bright Light

*

*
I just received this emailed UFO report. 

Location: Casa Grande, Arizona
Date: February 12, 2012
Time:  21:00 (9:00PM)

Last night around 9:00 pm my husband and I were driving home from my parents. I noticed a bright white light in the sky above my parents house with a flashing red light. It almost looked like a star because it was pretty far up.

As we made our way home I noticed it started to follow us. It started to descend. It was strange because it like literally stayed within sight of the passenger side window. It never went out of sight. At about that time I noticed it wasn't a star because it was getting lower. At one point I saw it flash and disappear but it came back. ( My parents live about 10 minutes from our apartment so all this happened in a short amount of time)

As we got closer to our apartment the light seemed to get closer to us. When we turned on to our road it literally hovered in front of us and we noticed it started to descend at a very fast pace. Yes my husband noticed it too.

When we entered the gate it came right at us and at this time it was pretty close to the ground. All we saw was a bright light though. As soon as we parked I hauled ass into the apartment. We got home around 9:17pm. I was so scared and I almost had a panic attack. My husband thought I was actually about to have one to be honest. At that point I was afraid to go outside. I didn't go outside the rest of the night. My husband walked our dog though.

Later that night probably around 11:40pm he woke up out of a deep sleep and asked me whose bed we were in. His exact words were "Whose bed is this?" Like he didn't have a clue. That really freaked me out. I told him it was our bed and he said he knew but he was forgetting. He went right back to sleep after.

When I saw him get up around 4:40am to go to work I asked him if he knew where he was at and his exact words were "Sorta." He did go to work though.

I also heard strange sounds during the night. When I walked the dog around 9am I saw an owl. It perched right on top of a house across the ditch and like stared at me. It also made sounds. It finally flew off after a few minutes.

Note:  I spoke with the witness by phone.  She claims that she and her husband have seen lights like this before, that seem to "follow" them.

When I asked her how close the object came, she said within 30 feet and that it was about the size of a softball, thereabouts, and no higher than the roof of their vehicle.  Before it's approach, it appeared like a red flashing star.

The object emitted a bright white light, with a flashing red light attached and was seen East of Casa Grande, AZ.


The witness also stated that when her husband walked the dog, the object was still in the sky.

Both the witness and her husband feel very tired today and she is very afraid.

Get out of movie, heading home saw a bright white light followed by 3 helio, then they began search pattern.
Coming out of the movies with my wife, and on the way home I saw one very bright light not moving. First I thought it was an airplane but something was not right. Then it move quick to the north which is strange because most planes move south to land at airport. After that saw 3-4 helios. in formation going after it then in a search pattern after 5 mins.

Flurry of Sightings Over Texas - February 1, 2012

*



There was a flurry of reports from Texas, concerning sighting on February 1, 2012.  Here are just a few.

These reports are unedited.





NUFORC Case # S86956
Occurred : 2/1/2012 17:56
Location: Groveton, TX
Shape: Circle
Duration:30 seconds

Object looks as if on fire and crashing, then flies back into the sky, glowing orange and green.

My boyfriend relies on me to take him to work every night at 8:00 p.m. We got in the car tonight and started heading down the road. He had a headache, so he was leaned back in the passenger’s seat with his eyes closed. I happened to look up and saw what appeared to be a moving star. At first, I thought it was a satellite or something, so I didn’t think much about it, except that it looked rather large. But, as I kept looking at it, I noticed that it started to spark orange, as if it were on fire. It looked like an airplane had caught on fire and was crashing.

I hit my boyfriend on the shoulder to get his attention and told him to look, pointing at the object. He wasn’t all that focused because of his headache, so he didn’t look and just leaned back into the seat again. I kept my eyes focused on the object the entire time.

Suddenly, it started going back up into the sky, and I saw not only orange lights now, but green as well. I hit my boyfriend again, and told him to look, but by the time he did look, a line of trees had covered the object.

I came home and explained it to my mom and dad, but they said they had no idea what it was.

NUFORC Case # S86969
Occurred : 2/1/2012 15:00
Location: El Paso, TX
Shape: Circle
Duration:2 hours

Strange circular aircraft in the sky

My Husband and I were watching the air traffic from our courtyard at our home here in el paso.....we see all sorts of aircraft from airliners, jets, drones, by planes and helicopters. But then we saw what looked like a white ball gradually cruising along at the same altitude west towards new mexico. My husband ran and got our camera and managed to zoom in on this object… This first object was pretty low and upon zooming in on it we realized it was a ball of light with what looked two matalic objects on it.. one on top and bottom almost apearing disk shaped.... Then after a while it seemed to disappear and re-appear in the sky as it got further away.....shortly after that we came back outside and noticed four more of the very same objects flying around each other in zig zag patterns....it was very unatural to me and Ive never seen anything like these things... These four seemed to be much higher and father away. we capture and focused on as many as we could w! ith our camera at that moment but they were very hard to focus on.....when those seemed to disappear in the sky a few friends stopped by and as we were showing them what we caught on camera....another apppeared in the sky going the same direction as the first.....we caught video of that one too.... The air traffic was very busy that day but this was nothing I have ever seen before.... There were no clouds in the sky except the cem trails from the passing just we get from fort bliss. These odd objects in the sky did not make any sound and seem to fly in a most unual pattern...my close ups reveal that this is not a plane of any sorts.

NUFORC Case # S86954
Occurred : 2/1/2012 19:55
Location: Cedar Park, TX
Shape: Fireball
Duration:35 seconds

Greenish Fireball: Cedar Park, TX

As my family and I were eating dinner, I looked out the window and saw a greenish fireball like object and I called everybody else to see it, so we huddled around the window. Both my dad and brother were able to see it. I saw it for about 25-30 seconds, it had a neon greenish color, and seemed to be going West to East according to where the sun sets and rises. The interesting thing about this was that this was not the first time I’ve seen this phenomenon; my dad and I have actually seen this fireball like object around the fall of 2011 and it was going in the same direction. This sighting took place on February 1, 2012 at around 7:55pm CST at Cedar Park TX.

NUFORC Case # S86953
Occurred : 2/1/2012 20:05
Location: Ben Wheeler, TX
Shape: Sphere
Duration:30 seconds

Orange, spherical object viewed over east texas by retired physician.

Orange, spherical object, about the size of a beach ball viewed on a east to west course. It was viewed for 15 to 30 seconds. Located in rural Van Zandt County near intersection of Texas Hwy 64 and Texas FM 314.

Trailing sparks seen.

Then it disappeared.


((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with this witness, and he provided additional information, which we summarize below:

Witness was looking at the Moon, when he saw a very bright object over his left shoulder. The object was quickly almost directly overhead, and approximately three times the size of a full Moon.

The object coursed to the east, and suddenly just winked out. It was like someone turning off a light switch.

As the witnessed the object from below, he saw a distinct orange color, and not the green color that other witnessed reported seeing from other parts of Texas.

The witness is a medical professional, and we suspect that he is a very capable observer.

NUFORC Case # S86957

I have seen this object only recently first I saw it around the first of january and towards the middle of jan and now. The first time it was between the horizon of two trees at first I thought it was a plane since it flashed the same colors but didn't move at all like a plane and moved in a small zig zag and circular movement I watched for about 2hours and went to bed. The secound time I saw it it was about a foot to the right and doing the same thing exact same horizon line and same movements and same rapid blinking. This time I am watching it as I type it is to the left this time and slowly moving more then it did before. Ok so I just noticed very faintly there are about 4 more and u can't see them if you look directly at them they are blinking bright red.... I am very scared and very concerned about this as I am very very very afraid of the unknown…

Unidentified Lights Seen Over McKinney and Frisco, Texas

*
*

There have been a number of sightings recently, of unidentified lights in our Texas skies.  On February 5, 2012, witnesses in McKinney, Texas had just finished watching the Superbowl when they observed a a bright green light living no trail, descend towards the Raytheon Space and Air Systems complex in Dallas.

On February 4, 2012, separate witnesses observed blue glowing spheres traveling through the night sky.

Here are those unedited reports.

02/05/2012  9:25PM
McKinney, Texas
Sphere, Light


Me, my neighbor and his 10 year old son had just finished watching the super bowl at my house. As we were standing out front of my house, looking south as we talked, a very bright green, almost laser-like green orb appeared out of nowhere at about 40 degrees in the horizon, traveling from the east to the west. The orb continued on an arc-like path toward the ground. Two houses down is a two story home and we lost sight of it as it fell. This object had no trail behind it, just a very bright green orb. Less than a half-mile from my home to the south is a Raytheon Space and Air Systems complex and it appeared to have fallen exactly at this place. My neighbor was looking away but his son and I saw the whole thing. This happened at approximately 9:30 p.m.. I am regularly seeing strange objects in the sky in north Texas but this is the first time I have reported any of them and it is the first time I have ever seen an object like this. There is no doubt in my mind that this object came down to the ground somewhere either on the Raytheon property or very close to it just south of my house.

Frisco, Texas
Sphere. Light


My wife was outside jumping rope when she looked up to a bright star (i think it is Venus)and noticed 30-50 blue glowing spheres move through the sky around 9pm on Feb 4th, 2012 (Frisco, TX). She made me aware and when I stepped outside I also saw several blue spheres move from the North to the South. We were looking West about 50-60 degree from horizon). Some were above the clouds and some were below the clouds and they moved faster than a plane. They were blue glowing spheres moving to the south. They disappeared in the distance to the south and some disappeared above the clouds. There was no noise associated with them at all. Not sure what made us shake more, the cold weather last night or what we saw and could not explain...

02/04/2012  9:05PM
Frisco, Texas
Sphere, Light


Just witnessed something I have no explanation for. 5 or so blue lights (not blinking) moving in the same direction (South/South-East) while keeping perfect order. Followed by 4 or 5 blue lights moving on their own (but in the same direction as the first 5). Relatively fast speed. No sound at all. It all happened in a matter of 10-15 seconds. Regarding the first 5 lights moving in the same direction and staying at the same distance from each other I at first thought it was a large flying object, but then I could see the sky in between the lights. It's really hard to explain, I really have no idea what it could've been. But I'm positive they were not airplanes (the lights were blue and not blinking at all and I could see airplanes flying in the sky at the same exact time in different directions). I'm curious to find out if someone else has seen the same thing. Like I said it happened over Frisco TX 75035, Saturday February 4, at about 9:05 PM.

There was no sound at all. The blue lights seemed bigger then the blinking lights of a plane, so I'd guess they were lower. But the sky was cloudy and the lights were not lower than the clouds (if it makes sense).

Russian Scientists Plan To Be On The Moon By 2020

*


*
"Russia’s space experts say missions to Earth’s satellite hold great potential, with polar areas of the moon possibly being used for building manned lunar bases, Pravda reported.

On Jan.19, Popovkin announced plans to establish lunar research bases with U.S. and European partners, according to RIA-Novosti new service.


A week after the announcement, Republican candidate Newt Gingrich aired plans to build a permanent outpost on the moon by 2020 if elected president."

Seen from San Antonio, north to Oklahoma City and possibly southeastern Kansas (I received a report from one observer in Parsons, Kansas), a brilliant fireball sped across the southern skies.

February 1, 2012, at approximately 8:00 p.m., a fireball lit up the Texas and Oklahoma skies. Some observers reported that it lasted up to one minute.  A few say  they saw it disintegrate, while others did not.

Here it is, captured on a police dash cam.

Moon Base? Gingrich's Dream Could Happen

Experts say Gingrich moon base dreams not lunacy

By SETH BORENSTEIN
Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich wants to create a lunar colony that he says could become a U.S. state. There's his grand research plan to figure out what makes the human brain tick. And he's warned about electromagnetic pulse attacks leaving America without electricity.

To some people, these ideas sound like science fiction. But mostly they are not.

Several science policy experts say the former House speaker's ideas are based in mainstream science. But somehow, Gingrich manages to make them sound way out there, taking them first a small step and then a giant leap further than where other politicians have gone.

Gingrich's promise that "by the end of my second term we will have the first permanent base on the moon" got amped up in a recent debate in Florida, which lost thousands of jobs with the end of the space shuttle program. By then, the lunar base had become a colony and even a potential state, and his moon ideas were ridiculed by rival Mitt Romney.

Returning to the moon and building an outpost there is not new. Until three years ago, it was U.S. policy and billions of dollars were spent on that idea.

Staying on the moon dates at least to 1969, when a government committee recommended that NASA first build a winged, reusable space shuttle followed by a space station and then a moon outpost. In 1989, President George H.W. Bush proposed going to the moon and staying there.

Sixteen years later, in 2005, his son, President George W. Bush, proposed a similar lunar outpost, phased out the space shuttle program and spent more than $9 billion designing a return to the moon program.

George Washington University space policy director Scott Pace, who was NASA's associate administrator in the second Bush administration and is a Romney supporter, said the 2020 lunar base date Gingrich mentioned was feasible when it was proposed in 2005.

But it is no longer, felled by funding cuts and President Barack Obama's decision to cancel the program. Pace said it would be hard to figure out when NASA could get back to the moon, but that such a return is doable.
What kept killing return-to-the moon plans were the costs, starting in 1969. The proposal died 20 years later when the price tag was released: more than $700 billion in current dollars. The second President Bush's plans started running into problems due to insufficient funding. After a special commission said those plans were not sustainable, Obama cancelled the return-to-the-moon program. Instead, he ordered NASA to aim astronauts toward an asteroid and eventually Mars, something many space experts say is even more ambitious.

"Some of you may like it and you may dislike it, but I gave the boldest explanation of going into space since John F. Kennedy in 1961," Gingrich said this week in Florida. "I believe in an America of big ideas and big solutions. I believe if we unleash the American people we will rebuild the American dream."

In Florida, nearly all the Republican presidential candidates promoted private companies sending astronauts into space. Several companies are building private spaceships. Commercial space companies taking over the job of getting Americans into low Earth orbit is a cornerstone of the Obama space plan. But, again, money has been an issue.

For example, NASA received $406 million in its current budget for private space programs. Obama had asked Congress for $805 million.

Neal Lane, former head of the National Science Foundation and White House science adviser during the Clinton administration, said Gingrich's proposals aren't crazy, although he may disagree with some of them. Gingrich's ideas and actions are "very pro-science," said Lane, who credited Gingrich with protecting federal science research from budget cuts in the 1990s.

"He's on the edge of mainstream thinking about big science. Except for the idea of establishing a colony on the moon, it's not over the edge," added Syracuse University science policy professor Henry Lambright.
