HAPPY NEW YEAR

UFOs HAVE BEEN REPORTED in New Jersey, Wisconsin, Minnesota,
Arkansas, Oklahoma, Washington, Canada, Scotland, Belgium,
France and New Zealand. The number of UFO reports dropped as
they have done in recent years during the Holidays. Most of the
December reports occurred on December 1, when a Russian Proton
rocket reentered the atmosphere over the US Middle West.
However, many of the more than 40 sightings did not seem to be
the space debris. There are indications that more than a dozen
UFOs were inside our atmosphere throughout the US and Europe
that night. Sightings in 2001 remain high similar to the year
2000 with more than 2,500 reports each year in the US alone. UFO
reports have steadily increased over the last five years. Most
sightings are reported over the Internet indicating a fairly
high level of sophistication for those able to use the Internet
and find reporting sites. The increase in sightings may be
attributed to the increase in Internet usage. However, the
average report takes thirty minutes to fill out, so those making
the reports are convinced they saw something very unusual and
very important. This filtering process helps rule out hoaxes,
mundane stars, satellites, aircraft and the like.

QUESTIONS FOR SCIENTISTS

Dr. Bruce Coronet sent me a list of questions for scientists to
ponder. Here are a few to ponder.

1. Are scientists and journalists aware that much of the
research staff on a pivotal government-funded study of UFO
evidence - the Condon Committee - resigned or were fired when
they challenged its director's intention to report a
pre-ordained conclusion that all UFO sightings can be explained
in mundane terms?

2. Are scientists and journalists aware that the chief
scientific consultant in the Air Force's Blue Book study of
UFOs later characterized the project as a publicity maneuver to
mollify the public, himself convinced by the evidence he saw
that genuine, unexplained aerospatial phenomena are in our
midst?

3. Are you aware that reports of these two government-funded,
now-discredited studies - the Condon Committee and Project Blue
Book - are the primary reasons why most scientists and
journalists have dismissed UFO evidence as pseudoscience?

4. Are scientists and journalists aware that hundreds of
thoroughly credentialed pilots and military officers have
officially documented sightings of structured craft
demonstrating motions possible only through gravitational
propulsion, and that some of these sightings are accompanied by
radar records?

Editor's Note: I happen to be one who intercepted a UFO at the
request of London Control and had the structured object on my
radar. Four hundred government employees are prepared to
testify before Congress under oath that UFOs are real as part
of the Disclosure Project.

NASA TO SEEK EARTH LIKE PLANETS

Robert Roy Britt reports that NASA's Kepler satellite mission
will study 100,000 stars to search for other potentially
habitable planets. NASA gave the final necessary green light
Friday to the Kepler mission. The space agency also approved
the Dawn mission, which will orbit the two largest asteroids in
our solar system. Kepler will be the first spacecraft devoted
to the search for Earth-sized planets around other stars and an
important step toward finding life elsewhere in our galaxy, if
it exists. Both missions are part of NASA's Discovery program.
The decisions mean the missions will now be funded and planning
and construction can begin. Each is slated for launch in 2006.
The Kepler satellite will orbit the sun and study some 100,000
stars for four years, looking for planets that are similar in
size to Earth and in similar orbits around their stars. Only
planets with orbits in this so-called "habitable zone," where
it is not too hot and not too cold, could have liquid water,
scientists say. And liquid water is seen as a necessary
ingredient for life as we know it. "This will be the first
mission that ought to be able to produce a census of
Earth-sized planets in the habitable zones around other stars,"
said David Morrison, a member of the mission's science working
group at NASA's Ames Research Center, which will oversee the
project. Current ground-based searches typically find only very
large planets that orbit very close to their host stars and
almost certainly could not support life. About 80 of these
so-called extrasolar planets have been found. Thanks to
Space.com and Robert Roy Britt

NEW JERSEY BALLS OF LIGHT

The witness reports, "On Sunday, December 23, 2001, I think I
saw a UFO. I was driving on the Garden State Parkway when I saw
four big, dull balls of light in the sky. I'm pretty sure the
lights were not coming from the ground such as a searchlight,
because I didn't see a line of light coming from the ground.
The lights kept separating and then coming together again. I'm
also pretty sure they were moving in the same direction as our
car because we were driving at about 70 mph for fifteen minutes
and the UFO was right above the car the whole time. I drew a
picture that shows how the lights were moving. Thanks to MUFON
HQ and RabbitSc8

WISCONSIN CYLINDRICAL OBJECT

NEWTON/CLEVELAND -- CHRIS B reports. I was driving to work in
Sheboygan from Manitowoc on December 26, 2001, and as I
approached the wayside on I-43 just north of Cleveland I
spotted what appeared to be an UFO above the wayside. At 6:26
AM all that was visible were three white lights in a row. I
could almost make out the body of the craft, but with it being
early morning visibility was minimal. The object didn't blink
or make any noise that I could hear over the sound of the car
engine and road noise. The object was stationary when I first
saw it and stayed stationary as I drove past to the south. I
would estimate that the object was between 300 to 500 feet in
altitude and was about the height of a radio tower. When I
drove past this area on my way home, I looked for any towers
that I could have mistaken for the object, but there was none
anywhere the object flew that morning. I'm sure there were
other witnesses since the Interstate was full of morning
commuters. Thanks to UFOWisconsin and jenny@ufowisconsin.com

MINNESOTA FLYING TRIANGLE

DULUTH -- A large Flying Triangle craft, about four times the
size of a stealth jet was seen while two men were driving north
on Highway 53, thru the northern suburb of Hermantown on March
5, 2001. The Flying Triangle was dark, but the color seemed to
be a gray silver color with a light on each corner and one in
the center from 9:30 to 10:00 PM. The craft crossed the highway
from the left side, moving to the right. It was moving very
slowly, almost hanging over the highway for a while. One of the
men thought that it should be moving faster and be out of site
when compared to commercial planes. It was a little higher than
treetop level, about a block high. They pulled the car over to
the side and stopped to listen. There was no sound coming from
it. It continued drifting slowly until it went past a bunch of
trees and then it suddenly either took off extremely fast or
just disappeared. It was angling in the direction of the Duluth
Air Force Base, which has been officially closed for quite some
time. I think there are Air National Guard fighter jet
operations there now, since the September 11, attack. The
unidentified craft was triangular shaped, except in the back.
It wasn't a straight line like a true triangle, but was
indented some. Thanks to Fire2@cpinternet.com (Bonnie)

ARKANSAS BLUE LIGHT

On Monday, December 24, 2001, at 7:00 AM, Mike was starting to
feed the animals on his farm. He was checking the goats when he
saw a blue Ball of light at tree top level, headed south to
north and then disappear. Mike said, "Almost looked like it was
over our lower farm. I've been busy so this is the only time I
can get this sighting out to you. Thanks to mike

OKLAHOMA NEW YEAR'S EVE SIGHTING...

TULSA - JONES/RIVERSIDE AIRPORT -- Rich Edmunds writes, on
December 31, 2001, I was on the first floor roof of my job
site, taking my regular coffee break checking out the sky as I
often do, when I saw a red light about 30 degrees off the north
horizon. It was moving very slowly to he south at 11:40 PM CST,
At first I thought it was probably a helicopter since I see
them often enough from this location. However, the light did
not blink on and off like even a helicopter light would. It
only flickered when it changed at all. It made no sound that I
could hear and when helicopters are around I do hear them. I
turned away for no more than five seconds and when I looked
back, there was a second light, this one white, not as bright
moving a bit faster from west to east. On a 2-D drawing, it
would have been lower than the red light. It was moving slow
enough and at a position that I have trouble believing that I
would not have seen it before turning my head. It is as if it
came from nowhere (or maybe from the red light)? I watched it
for maybe 30 seconds before it just went out. This got me very
excited. I continued watching the red light as it moved closer
until it was about 45 degrees off the horizon. I noticed that
it was no longer red but more of a copperish orange color. I am
almost positive that it came to a complete stop (it moved so
slow that it was often hard to tell if it was moving at all)
and then began to move easterly for about 30 seconds and then
it suddenly dimmed to the brightness of a dim star and then
went out altogether.

I watched for two more minutes but neither light reappeared. I
then had to go back to my work duties. The moon was nearly
overhead and was behind a thin layer of clouds. It had a slight
ring around it. I could see what I think was the planet Jupiter
with no problems. Now here was a small band of heavier clouds
between the moon and the part of he sky where the lights were
but I am 90% sure that the lights did not disappear due to
clouds. These lights were not satellites as they were much too
bright and I have never seen a red satellite. I don't think I
have ever seen a light act in such a manner. I celebrated my
45th birthday on New Year's Eve and this certainly was a fine
and unexpected present from someone or something. Thanks to

WASHINGTON NEW YEARS EVE UFO

KENNEWICK -- Today is January 1st, 2002, last night at 10:00
PM, K.. Colman along with three adults and three children, got
the opportunity to observe the presence of three unexplainable
lights. He reports, "They put us in nothing short of complete
amazement! I first saw one beautiful light that was traveling
in a somewhat upward yet horizontal direction. It first came
into my view when it rose above the peak of our shop in our
backyard. I quickly went into my home and alerted my family and
friends. We all gathered on the deck of my home and saw in the
sky three beautiful golden colored lights that reminded me of
big gold Christmas bulbs. Each object seemed to be Gold in
color, circular shaped about the size of a quarter, held at
arm's length, with a white light on each one. All three
unidentified objects looked to be identical.

As we watched in amazement they rose to a position almost
straight above us. They moved in a very smooth way, at a very
moderate speed they hovered over head for seven to ten minutes
before the first light suddenly went straight up and
disappeared, just that fast. Then the next light moved to what
looked like the exact place in the sky, and did the same thing.
This light faded away then reappeared and then quickly
disappeared in a straight upward direction. Then, the third
light also moved to the same place in the sky and, it too,
disappeared into the sky in a straight upward direction. It was
simply mystifying, and totally captivating! I have never seen
anything like this in my life it was so exciting, I simply
cannot put it into words how completely awesome this sighting
really was! The kids thought it was cool. However, the four
adults that witnessed these things are just blown away! What a
great experience! We will never forget this New Years
celebration that is for sure! Thanks to K. Coleman

SCOTLAND UFOs FILMED

EDINBURGH -- Andrew Hennessey reports that world shattering
footage was shot on a Digicom at night by Steve X an associate
of Russell Penman on Sunday, December 23, 2001. The footage
clearly shows three massive motherships over the estuary beside
the city of Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. The ships one
half to one mile long [best guess at this time] are elliptical,
clearly curved at the front -- the front terminating in three
giant headlights. The two hours of substantial Digicom footage
clearly show one many windowed, and many layered mothership
issuing forth bright shiny pod shaped ships or beings glowing
white.  Over the course of the two hours -- these ships are
disgorged by the mothership in clear focus as they fly off in
twos or in formation or singularly over the City of Edinburgh
and its suburbs. There are two other ships of similar
configuration further off in the distance. This wonderful
footage is of earth shattering significance, but also comes by
way of several other amazing photographs and other stills by
the Penman 'group.'

This is the clearest evidence I have ever seen that Alien life
has a massive social engineering program for the human race. We
could not clearly see the other two ships doing the same -- as
the light capsules were tiny in proportion. The other two ships
were decloaked simultaneously -- in the drop zone of the
Lothian's. On top of other fabulous daytime footage by Brian
Mac Phee also of the forth valley at Stirling, near Edinburgh.
Central Scotland is again confirmed as one of the hottest
hotspots on the planet. Over the piece, I watched hundreds and
hundreds of little lights fly out of the mothership at all
levels of the structure, sometimes hanging back so the others
could catch up, they flew and scattered in all directions over
the sleepy Capital of Scotland - a city which anciently was
once thought of as a Jerusalem with its seven hills and its
Masonic connections and secrets. We are not alone. Thanks to

BELGIUM AND FRANCE NEW UFO WAVE

On January 1, 2002, Jeff told me during his radio show about
the considerable upswing in UFO activity in Belgium and France,
including the Flying Black Triangles. (I'm a regular guest on
the Jeff Rense's Radio Show, the first Tuesday of the month.)
Jeff Rense reports that the Flying Triangles are back in
Europe, particularly in Belgium and France! In 1989 and 1990,
the Flying Triangles were reported almost nightly.

In mid-October a young lady reported a UFO in the Avioth area
of northern France. The very dark, square shaped UFO had four
lights, one at each corner. Last month, UFO sightings became
widely reported on the TV news and popular newspapers,
reporting that "A new wave is hitting Belgium." One of the more
popular Belgian papers, "La Derni=E9re Heure" (The Last Hour) on
December 19th featured a detailed report by one of its noted
writers, Gilbert Dupont, about the return of the triangles,
with new reports of blue lighting on the underside of the
craft, as well as orange and yellow. Belgian TV interviewed two
young men in Namur, who reported a very close encounter with a
silver, cylindrical shaped UFO. Triangles are being reported
with varying lighting structures; red, green and blue lights,
as well as UFOs that are orange in color. Many of the Belgian
UFO organizations believe the Flying Triangles are US military
related considering the presence of SHAPE (Supreme Headquarters
Allied Powers Europe), in Brussels, Belgium. The craft cause
vibrations that rattle windows and dishes. They are described
as huge flying buildings, possibly two triangles stuck
together. Thanks to Jeff Rense who has a detailed report on his
web site at Rense.Com.

NEW ZEALAND LARGE PULSATING LIGHT OBSERVED

GISBORNE, NORTH ISLAND -- On December 29, 2001, Lawrence,
writes that I was on our computer at home online, when my wife
who was outside opened our front door and asked me to come and
have a look at something in the sky. As soon as I got outside
it didn't take long to catch sight of the large light overhead
at 7:43 PM. My first reaction to this object in the sky was in
reference to its speed, size, and brightness. Having personally
seen numerous lights in the sky during a UFO flap over
Gisborne, New Zealand in 1976; I knew what we were looking at
in the night sky was unusual. The object/light was larger than
the planet Mars (which was also visible). It was definitely
pulsating in brightness, set against the backdrop of a clear
sky with a full moon to the east. By the time I was called by
my wife Kathleen, the object was directly overhead, and took
between 30 seconds and one minute to disappear over the
southern horizon. I even jumped on top of our fence to watch
the object as long as possible. During the whole time of
observation, the object's speed remained constant and in one
direction. It may not have gone in a perfect straight light
across the night sky, but its direction did not deviate. The
apparent size of the object somehow concerned me. My wife, not
normally interested in things in the sky above, was quite
elated and curious during this observation. To me its varying
brightness caught the eye. I waited during the sighting to see
a color change, but none occurred. However as stated above, its
size stood out compared to other objects; i.e., stars/planets.
I checked up at (heavens-above.com) for other known objects in
the sky at that precise time. Nothing seemed to match this
object we had seen. We would both like to know what such a
bright/large object in the night sky could have been? In
addition, what travels at the speed this thing was doing?
LATITUDE: 38.65S LONGITUDE: 178.00E. Thanks to Chuck Warren -

TEXAS RESEARCHER ASKS FOR HELP

Bill Clark, I'm writing to ask for your comments on some
research I have done, presented in full on my web site at
http://www.inviticus.com. I was dismissed post haste from the
Ph.D. program at the University of Texas at Austin a week ago
(yes it was the day before Christmas), and I believe it is
because of my research into the UFO enigma. I am appealing this
decision, and would appreciate your support by signing the
Guest Book on my web site. My theory is that the UFO's achieve
lighter than air capability by virtue of a chemical derivative
of Freon. You may recall Freon was banned worldwide a few years
ago because it was shown to damage the ozone layer. Yet, Freon
is four times heavier than air ~ how can it make it many miles
into the upper atmosphere to interact with the ozone there? I
believe it does so by virtue of reacting with something in the
air, which then renders it ultra lightweight.

An aircraft, which is not affected by gravity, could do
everything we know UFO's to do. I am an international expert in
energy conservation, and have for many years protested the
Freon Ban because the new "ozone safe" Freon is 25% less
efficient than Freon-12. My efforts have met with such extreme
resistance from the highest authorities in government and in
the engineering societies, that in recent years I have sought
some explanation for their behavior. I believe the banned Freon
is still being manufactured in massive quantities (obviously it
is, because the ozone hole doubles year to year even with the
Ban in effect), and that the government and industry knows
about it, and what it is being used for. I have all the details
on my web site, along with my credentials and other supporting
evidence. I hope you have a chance to visit, and especially to
leave your comments in my Guest Book. Thanks and best wishes
for a wonderful New Year, Bill Clark Lagos Vista, Texas

SPIELBERG'S "TAKEN" IS CAST

Michael Moriarity and Eric Close have been cast in The SCI FI
Channel's Taken, from Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks is an
upcoming original miniseries scheduled to air during the fourth
quarter of 2002. The 20-hour miniseries, which started
production in September in Vancouver, weaves together the
stories of three families over three generations and their
roles in the history of alien abductions. In addition to
Moriarity (Law & Order) and Close (Now and Again), the cast
will include Willie Garson, Anton Yelchin, Ryan Hurst, Chad
Morgan, Rob LaBelle, Catherine Dent, Tina Holmes, Steve Burton,
Julie Benz and Joel Gretsch. Principal photography continues
through the end of May 2002. Leslie Bohem wrote all 20 hours of
Taken and production will commence in Vancouver. The miniseries
will interweave the stories of three families and their
experiences with UFO abductions. Burton will play Randall Keys,
a World War II fighter pilot who encounters strange lights in
the night sky while on a mission over Germany. Benz will play
Kate Keys, Randall's wife, who is forced to raise their son
alone as Randall struggles to cope with his abduction
experience. Thanks to Robert Collins.

CANADA INVESTIGATIONS

TORONTO -- Lawrence Fenwick writes, "I've seen five UFOs, three
of which were multiple-observer events." One was seen in broad
daylight in 1996. All were in the city of Toronto. I retain
physical evidence from three UFO incidents, none of which were
from my sightings. One was from northern California, one from
Israel, and another from Don Mills, Ontario, a Toronto suburb.
The California and Israel artifacts came from cases
investigated by police officers. All evidence has been tested
in private or university laboratories. All were declared
non-terrestrial in the way in which the constituent elements
were combined.

This does not eliminate the possibility that some scientific,
intelligence agency and military people working together may be
responsible for most, if not all, abductions, with the use of
mind control techniques and advanced technological devices,
using creatures genetically engineered to appear non-human. The
Don Mills, Ontario item was an implant 1.5 by 1 mm. in size,
consisting primarily of aluminum, titanium, and silicon, all of
which can be used in a transducer, according to an engineer at
Panasonic in Mississauga, Ontario. The implant was removed
surgically in a hospital in 1988 and, after almost immediate
preliminary lab analysis at the University of Toronto, was
analyzed completely at an industrial laboratory in Mississauga.
It had been implanted by some entities that seemed alien. It
was placed in a lady's left earlobe on the night of July 12,
1961, For three years, she heard what she called periodic
buzzing signals "like Morse code" in her left ear. They
gradually faded away. Many years later, she gave lectures about
UFOs, stating that they and the creatures associated with them
were extraterrestrial and meant no harm. Was this propaganda
instilled in her to condition her audience to a particular
point of view? The earlobe was still a bit swollen at the time
investigators from CONFORM were in touch with her in 1986. The
lady passed away in 1992 at age 74. Due to ridicule of the UFO
topic, we call her Betty Stewart. Her son has threatened to sue
me if her real name is published as he is afraid of ridicule in
case anyone reads her real name and finds out he is her son.

NEW NASA SHUTTLE VIDEO OF UFOs IN SPACE

Jeff Challender has prepared a new tape of various UFOs that
were caught on recent Shuttle video footage. Jeff has over a
hour-long tape of UFOs shot in space. Jeff spends hundreds of
hours watching the shuttle broadcasts from space and is now an
expert on NASA missions and even those onboard the shuttle are
unlikely to see what Jeff does. Using Jeff's directions you
will be able to learn the difference between space junk, ice
crystals and real UFOs. I feel confident we could go into a
court of law and convince any jury that there are UFOs moving
at high speed around the Earth. Send $25 to: Jeff Challender
2768 Mendel Way - Sacramento, California 95833-2011 Jeff has an
operation his back and is still in pain, we ask you to send
your prayers.
