Filer: MUFON Eastern Director, Oct. 30, 1997 Majorstar@aol.com (609) 654-0020 Some UFOs such as Silverbug may belong to various world governments. GEORGIA Ken Aspinwall, an independent ufologist in LaGrange, has informed Georgia of MUFON that a group of witnesses saw a cone-shaped or capsule shaped UFO. It looked much like the infamous 9/16/96 Valley, Alabama UFO photos. A UFO was hovering and moving at great speed on two occasions near Cannonville, Troup County, in western Georgia. One of the witnesses told Georgia MUFON that they saw a cone-shaped UFO over Murphy Road on Tuesday, October 21st at around 11:00 p.m. The couple said, "The UFO had a round bottom with a sometimes flashing circle of red lights. On top of the cone was an intense and large non-blinking white light." The next night at approximately 7:30 to 8:00 p.m., one of the witnesses along with her 18 year old younger sister saw the same UFO. It was hovering over the Cannonville road between the church and the I-85 overpass to the east. The UFO was seen hovering just above the treeline and moving up and down slowly at times. Pulling their car over and shutting the car's engine off they watched the Valley type UFO flit around in the general area for over five minutes. The UFO at its closest point was about 3/4's of a mile away and made no sound. At that distance the UFO had an apparent size of a full-moon. One witness estimated the UFO was about the size of a twin-engine prop-plane. Georgia MUFON/ISUR has communicated with witnesses near LaGrange, in Colorado and Indiana that have seen the Valley type UFOs. They all agree the UFO is the size of small plane. Troup County "911"personnel are currently checking for any calls that may have been made to them concerning UFOs. They tentatively do not remember any calls. An unrelated witness, a roofer, said that he and his wife had seen stationary or slow-moving strange blue flashing lights hovering in the Cannonville area just before midnight on 18 October. While a new tower has recently been erected in Cannonville for cellular phones, the tower has steady flashing red lights. According to the roofer, blue lights' lit-up a sizeable portion of the sky for 20 minutes and did not flash with any pattern. The Oct. 22nd, sighting in Cannoville ended when the cone-shaped UFO shot off to the east over Hutchinson Mill Road at a speed "greater than a commercial airliner." At all times the UFO was seen at only slightly above tree-top level with largely only its large white light on. When its ring of red lights sporadically came on, the witnesses could clearly see the round bottom of the UFO. Further investigation will continue. Thanks to State Director, John Thompson: firstname.lastname@example.org LOUISANA Mike Painter, a former Air Force Security Specialist was on guard duty at Barksdale Air Force Base in Shreveport, Louisiana in September of 1975 at nearly midnight. Mike reports, "I was walking my post that evening when we heard over our radios that a civilian had called the base, reporting a UFO sighting. Initially we laughed it off, when a few moments later the guard at the West entrance to the base reported to Command the an object was hovering at a height of about 50 to-60 feet. It remained stationary for about 15 minutes. The object then left to the South. Just a few moments later, the guards at the Nuclear Weapons Storage Area (Barksdale was a SAC base) reported that the object was hovering over their post. It stayed there for another 15-20 minutes and then left. I had joined another of the guard at a point where our posts intersected and were listening to the radio traffic. The object passed over us as it left the weapons area. The object was triangular in shape and about 40 feet across. It had dim lights and made no sound as it passed overhead." Mike now lives in Crystal Lake, Illinois in (Thanks to John Thompson and ISUR for this sighting report.) CALIFORNIA Tom Nguyen reports on a sighting that occurred on Sunday afternoon, October 12, 1997, over Orange County, CA. The primary witness' name is Sean Tyrone, who related the story to me. He's a coworker here at my office. Here is a brief account of what he related to me: At about 1:00 p.m., he stepped out on the balcony of his 2nd floor apartment located in Fountain Valley. While looking up into the clear blue sky, he observed numerous luminous objects traveling at a high rate of speed in the upper atmosphere. The Santa Ana winds that night kept skies unusually clear and there were no clouds. At first, he thought they were meteorites. However, he observed two objects rapidly descend in a falling-leaf type of motion and suddenly zoom away in a straight trajectory at a high rate of speed. He called his wife out to the balcony to also observe the objects. He phoned his brother and father living in Westminster, a nearby city, as well as another friend in nearby Huntington Beach All of them observed the objects in the air. As I understand, this was observable for a couple of hours. Sean tried to photograph some of the objects with a camera and is waiting for them to be developed. I immediately called Orange County MUFON and left a brief account on their answering machine as instructed. Mike Tyrone, Sean's brother, also contacted OC MUFON. Let me know if you would like to get in touch with any of these people to discuss what they saw. Thanks to Tom Nguyen: TOM@bpm.stjoe.org POSSIBLE IMPLANTS US investigations have now revealed evidence of alien technology implanted in humans. California surgeon Dr Roger Leir has removed three "highly anomalous implants" from a couple who claimed to have had UFO encounters. Two were removed from the woman's toes. The third was in the man's hand. All were attached to nerves. Dr Leir, working with Houston-based alien investigator Derrel Sims, said the implants were ultra-hard magnetic cores surrounded by a dense gray membrane, which could not be cut. The membranes, made of tough proteins formed from skin and blood, prevented signs of inflammation or rejection. No one knows how the objects entered the body because no scar tissue or entry point was found. Dr Leir said "If these can teach us how to prevent tissue rejection, we could revolutionize surgery." From the U.K. UFO Network 9/8/97 Issue 82: CHILEAN JETS PURSUE UFO A Punta Arenas man claims to have witnessed two jet interceptors of the Fuerzas Aereas de Chile (FACh) in pursuit of a UFO over Punta Arenas, the southernmost city in Chile. According to a report by Dr. Carlos Munoz, an investigator for Agrupacion de Investigaciones Ovniologicas (AION), Chile's UFO study group, the night of September 15, 1997, Jesus Montalvo "was on a road outside Punta Arenas when he heard this 'BOOM' like sound coming from behind his car. As he stopped to see what it was, a huge disc-shaped UFO flying very low came from behind and passed right over his car. The UFO was being followed by two Chilean jet fighters flying in combat mode without lights. He watched the pursuit until the UFO made a fast acceleration, disappearing instantly from the sky, leaving behind the two jets." According to AION president Rodrigo Fuenzalida, the Chilean Air Force has been "on alert" since UFO videos shot in Punta Arenas and Iquique in northern Chile were aired on Channel 7, Television Nacional de Chile in Santiago. On Tuesday, October 14, 1997, at 8:30 a.m., a UFO hovered near a school located in Santiago de Chile, the nation's capital. Several dozen students and a professor spotted the daylight disc, which was arrayed with "many bright lights" as it "hovered for about 15 minutes and then did all sorts of maneuvers over Santiago." The UFO was also seen in the suburbs of Cerrillos and Quilpe, near Vina del Mar. The following day, Wednesday, October 15, two men fishing in Vina del Mar at approximately 8:00 a.m., "saw a UFO come out of the sea and head towards Santiago."

ION PROPULSION ENGINE ABC News.com: A futuristic form of spacecraft propulsion called ion engine propulsion is one step closer to becoming a reality. The ionic thruster (NASA) Deep Space 1 (DS1), the first launch of NASA's New Millennium program, will use ion propulsion (also known as solar electric propulsion) to power the craft on a deep-space mission next summer. This will mark the first time in the history of space exploration that ion propulsion, rather than chemical propulsion, is being used as the primary means of propelling a spacecraft. On Sept. 25, Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., completed the most extensive test of an ion engine ever performed. Begun on June 17, 1996, the 8,000-hour endurance test of a prototype xenon ion engine verified that the engine has what it takes for long missions. DS1 is now set to launch on July 1, 1998. During its two-year test mission, the spacecraft will fly by Mars, an asteroid, and a comet, serving as a spaceborne test bed to validate new technologies. DS1's xenon ion engine, which fires electrically charged atoms from its thrusters, is just 11.8 inches in diameter and is powered by more than 2,000 watts from large solar arrays, which focus, collect and store solar energy. Using xenon, a heavy inert gas, for fuel, the engine ionizes (gives an electrical charge to) the gas and electrically accelerates it to a speed of about 18.6 miles per second (about 70,000 miles per hour). When the xenon ions are emitted at such a high speed, they then push the spacecraft in the opposite direction. The converted xenon appears as a ghostly blue haze that trails from the back of the spacecraft as it catapults through space. Perhaps the strangest thing about ion propulsion is that it provides about the same amount of thrust as the pressure of a single sheet of paper held in the palm of the hand. So how does that power a spacecraft? As more and more ions are emitted, this low thrust gradually changes the craft's velocity from low to high speed.

UNITED KINGDOM FLYING TRIANGLES Large massive Flying Triangles (FT) are being observed over nuclear power plants in Southern England on a regular basis. Reports are mounting into the hundreds. Witnesses also report lights leaving a "massive" flying object and returning. Victor Kean from Project FT has eight reports from 1995 in which the FT was seen "discharging spheres" and, to date, two similar reports from 1996. He states: "We are recording reports of these independent 'spheres' (usually red, orange or white) and find that in many instances a FT is also reported within 30 minutes and 50 miles. The 'spheres' have been reported as 'buzzing' or 'pacing' lone vehicles, usually late at night on remote roads. Thanks to Victor J. Kean and Project FT The last month has seen unprecedented UFO activity with "unbelievable" video footage being filmed in East Anglia on the North Sea. Sightings were also reported in Southern England. There were numerous phone calls relating to anomalous lights and "spinning discs" in the Blackpool, Bamber Bridge, Burnley, Southport and Crosby areas of the North West. It should be remembered that another one of our cases from November 1996 related to a cargo aircraft (call sign "Gemstone 904") flying from Belfast Aldergrove Airport to Coventry that encountered a UFO over the Lancashire Coast. This meant that the plane had to change course to avoid a possible collision. The conversation between the aircraft and Manchester ATC was recorded by a amateur radio ham. One thing we know for sure is that advanced prototype aircraft are being tested off the Lancashire Coast of the Eastern UK. Covert military activity is undoubtedly responsible for many reports, but not all. Thanks to: Tim Matthews, firstname.lastname@example.org, British UFO Studies Centre and Northern Federation of Independent Ufologists SILVERBUG DISC JET AIRCRAFT: The CIA and the Air Force are starting to release information on experimental disc aircraft apparently built for the government. The recent CIA claims that many UFO sightings were CIA or Air Force reconnaissance craft is probably true. They refer to these aircraft as U-2 or SR-71 or Oxcart aircraft. Recent declassified data infers that at least some of the UFOs sighted were Silverbug, X or Y-2 type disc shaped craft apparently built by the US, Canada and the UK. These craft look like a typical flying saucers. The Silverbug aircraft was designed to fly at 2300 MPH and reach an altitude of 80,600 feet as early as 1955. Additionally. These disc craft can hover and take off vertically like a helicopter. We are attempting to contact former air and ground crews, factory workers and designers now that these aircraft have been officially declassified. You can review some of the formerly classified Silverbug file on http://www 184.108.40.206/Silverbug or order a copy for a small fee. If you actually participated in these previous top secret projects now declassified you may contact me, or send your information to the Director, American Heritage Center, University of Wyoming, P.O.
