UFO FLAP BREAKS OUT IN
THE NETHERLANDS

       "A UFO like a ball of light frightened last Saturday
night (September 28, 2002) a Dutch couple, Pieter Vosters
and Judith van Heerwaarden, who live in Bladel (eastern
part of Noord-Brabant province, not too far from
Eindhoven--P.H.) in the southeast of the Netherlands."
       "The couple told the police the strange ball pursued
them during a period of three quarters of an hour (45
minutes) while they were driving their car on the road
from Valkenswaard to Bladel."
       "'I am a very hard-headed man in these things,' said
real estate agent Pieter Vosters, 40, 'And I know people
will think we are mad.  But what we saw was real.  The
light followed us all the time.  It reacted immediately
to our movements.  And I really didn't drink too much.'"
       "According to Vosters, the white ball radiated a
bright light and flew at a high altitude.  'First I
thought it was a kind of laser show for a discotechque.
We even started to make jokes about it.  But when it kept
on following us, I thought to myself: Something is wrong
here.'"
       "'We stopped the car on the side of the road.  The
light stopped as well and stayed above us while it was
turning around in circles (spinning--J.T.).  This
happened about six times more.  When we stopped, the
thing stopped as well.'"
       "'When we turned left in the direction of Bladel,
the light did the same.  It was a very bright light.  I
told my wife (Judith) to step on the gas.  But it kept on
pursuing us at a very high speed.  The speed was so high,
the object now looked like a streak of light.  By this
time, we were convinced it couldn't be a laser.  My wife
became frightened.  I was afraid to go home.'"
       "Vosters said the UFO disappeared when his wife
stopped their BMW not far from their house."
       "The Dutch investigations group, UFO Werkgroep-
Nederland (UWN), has started an extensive investigation
of the strange light phenomena that was reported last
weekend by a couple who live in Bladel, Noord-Brabant,"
Netherlands.
       "On Saturday night (September 28, 2002), in Utrecht,
40-year-old Linda Schajik was also followed by" the UFO.
       "Late Saturday night, at about 12:30 a.m. (actually,
that would have been early Sunday morning, September 29,
2002--J.T.) Linda had to walk home because she missed the
last bus."
       "'I saw a flat, luminous white spot slantingly above
me,' Linda reported, 'It had a gray luminous tail, and
the tail went up and down like a windscreen (windshield
in the USA--J.T.) wiper.  I was not surprised when I saw
it.  But the light kept on following me.  When I turned
to the right, the light did the same.  And when I
stopped, the light stayed above me, while it was turning
around in small circles (spinning).  I was not afraid.
On the contrary, I found it fascinating.  I stopped a few
times, sometimes as long as 15 minutes.  The light stayed
above me, gently hovering like some kind of guardian
angel who would escort me safely to my house.'"
       "'I thought: What do you want from me?  As I took
two steps to the left, it also made a fast movement.  Can
you imagine this?  After an hour, I walked up my street.
It was spinning for a short while above my little
apartment.  A man on the balcony asked me what I was
looking at.  When I told him about the light, he
immediately closed the door.  Perhaps he thought I was
mad.'"
       On Monday, September 30, 2002, at 10:30 p.m., Edmond
Kruk reported, "I was alone in my garden" in Hoorn, a
town in Noord-Holland province.  "That night the sky was
very bright here.  I saw something that could be a UFO.
At this time, I was just smoking a cigarette in my garden
when I saw a strange, red flying thing passing by at an
unusually fast speed.  It only lasted for ten seconds,
and then it was gone.  The thing was flying faster than a
normal jet plane and was also much bigger.  It also was
higher in the sky, flew very stable, and, in a very
strange way, it looked like 'slow motion' because it was
that big.'"
       Describing the UFO, Edmond added, "I thought it
looked like a 'game pad' (Gameboy in the USA--J.T.) with
five points of red light on either side.  The UFO came
from the east, passed Hoorn, and then went to the west,
towards Alkmaar.'"
       "'Some 20 seconds after that, a white flying ball
went the same way at the UFO, as if it was following the
red UFO.'"  (See the Netherlands newspaper De Telegraaf
for September 30, 2002, "UFO frightened Dutch couple;"
and for October 1, 2002, "More sightings of the
mysterious UFO."  The Kruk story was an Email Form
Report. Many thanks to Peter Hoeke of UFO Werkgroep-
Nederland for the newspaper articles.)
(Editor's Comment:  Taking the three stories together, it
sounds as if the small white UFO was a probe sent out by
the red UFO.  The probe may have been monitoring Pieter
Vosters and Linda Schajik for some unknown purpose.  It's
interesting to note that both Vosters and Schajik are 40
years old.  Were the UFOs up to something in the
Netherlands back in 1962?)


CHILCA: UFO CAPITAL OF PERU

       "Of all the officers in all the armed forces of the
world, perhaps none has a more unusual job than" Cmdr.
Julio Chamorro of the Fuerza Aerea Peruana (FAP, or
Peruvian Air Force--J.T.) "to investigate--and perhaps
prove--the existence of UFOs."
       "As head of the Office to Investigate Aerial
Phenomena, Chamorro directs a seven-member team in charge
of studying what he calls 'anomalies that could cause
problems with aviation.'"
       "Ostensibly, the Office investigates planes that
veer off course and hang gliders that steer too close to
military bases, but that's not the crux of their work.
Of the hundreds of calls received each month by the
Office, Chamorro says at least half are to report UFO
sightings.  And Chamorro says many are credible."
       "'There are several mysteries that we believe are
highly important and which merit our full attention,'
Chamorro said, 'If we can arrive at definitive
conclusions, our work will be highly beneficial to Peru
and all of humanity.  Just think about the technological
advances if we can definitively prove the existence of
(alien) spacecraft.'"
       "Chamorro estimates that 60 percent of Peru's
population has seen an unexplainable event in the sky.
Most of the calls he receives can be explained, but he
says about a dozen each month are credible sightings with
no easy explanations."
       "There is, for example, the video taken in
Chulucanas," in the department (state) of Piura, 470
kilometers (282 miles) north of Lima, Peru's capital.
"Taken at the end of 2001, Chamorro says it shows a huge
ship sitting in the sky for nearly two hours.  'The ship
makes no noise and did not move.  You can see the shape,
which includes even windows,' Chamorro said."
       "Chulucanas has a long history of UFO sightings, he
added."
       "Chamorro's office was officially organized two
years ago, but the Peruvian government's interest in UFOs
goes back" much earlier "and there is archaeological
evidence that ancient cultures were also hooked on other-
worldly phenomena."
       "Miles-long geometric designs in the desert of
Nazca, south of Lima, or a winged god in the north are
evidence for Chamorro that past cultures" in Peru "not
only mastered science and math but had an inkling that
space might hold more than the sun and moon."
       "In Chilca," 78 kilometers (46 miles) "south of
Lima, on the Pacific coast, Mayor Ruma Nueda is hoping to
capitalize on the town's fame as one of the hottest spots
for UFO sightings."
       "'There's big money in sightings,' Rueda said, 'We
can become the next Roswell.  Looking to the (UFO)
seekers may be Chilca's best bet for dealing with the
very worldly problems of economic decay and poverty.'"
       "Like many people in Chilca, Rueda says he has seen
unidentified objects in the skies above his town.  In
February 1998, Rueda says, he was chatting with his
brother one night right outside his house when a large,
boomerang-shaped object appeared over a ridge that juts
into the sea just beyond Chilca.  He says the UFO moved
slowly and made no noise."
       "Six similarly-shaped smaller objects were nearby.
'The mother ship and the six other vehicles hovered for a
few minutes and then headed out to sea,' Rueda said, 'I
had always heard about UFOs, but this was my first
sighting.  For me, it was undeniable proof that there was
life outside our planet.'"
       "Chilca also has its own tiny piece of UFO history.
In the town's one-room museum, Rueda keeps a miniscule
swath of Incan textile wrapped in brown paper for
safekeeping."
(Editor's Note: Actually, the "coast cultures" of Peru,
famous for their textiles,  predated the Incas by one to
two thousand years.)
       "The textile depicts an oddly-shaped, non-human
figure with antennas.  Rueda says the figure is similar
to the extraterrestrial supposedly found in Roswell (New
Mexico) in (July) 1947 and forms the core of UFO
attractions that have put Roswell on the map."
       "'This proves we are not the first people to sight
UFOs here.  The ancient Peruvians who inhabited Chilca
also had sightings and possibly contact,' he said."
       "Chamorro says (UFO) sightings form part of Peru's
culture, and even the government has gotten into the act
on and off during the years."  (See the Miami Herald for
September 28, 2002, "Peruvians reach discovery and profit
in UFOs."

BIGFOOT ON THE PROWL IN
WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA

       "The incident took place in Derry Township in
Westmoreland County," located about 25 miles (40
kilometers) east of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  According
to ufologist and researcher Stan Gordon, "It took some
time to reach the location, which was remote and was made
up of many acres of dense woods."
       "The event took place on or about Wednesday,
September 11, 2002," Stan reported, "at around 6 p.m.
The young man appeared to be a very serious individual
and revealed the details of what had occurred.  The
sighting took place just as the sun was going down.  He
was riding his bicycle on the family property" near Derry
(population 2,991) when he heard crashing sounds
originating from a wooded area.  There were sounds as if
something was hitting a log and branches breaking."
       "He stopped to listen when his attention was drawn
towards a field and a tree line 300 feet (90 meters)
away, where he saw 'a big brown human-looking thing but
very tall.'"
       "The creature was moving along the area, and there
were some clearings where the creature could be observed
at times.  The witness described the creature as
generally man-like, but 8 feet (2.4 meters) tall and
covered with dark brown hair.  The creature was broad-
shouldered, had very long arms, and the head was not
perfectly round but somewhat cone-shaped.  The creature,
which took very long steps, was occasionally swinging its
arms as it moved, and was slightly bent forward as it
walked."
       "'It leaned over when it walked,' the witness said."
       "The boy hurried to tell his father what he had
seen.  They both went back to the location, but nothing
more was observed" on this occasion.
       "Then, on Friday, September 27, 2002, at about 2
p.m., the wife of the caller (i.e. the man who reported
the sighting to Stan Gordon--J.T.) was driving up a road
near the (same) wooded area where the first sighting had
taken place.  She heard a sound like limbs of trees
breaking, coming from the left, and she stopped."
       "There are a lot of deer in those woods, and she was
concerned that some deer were about to run across the
road and would hit her vehicle.  She was talking to her
husband on her cell phone at the time."
       "Suddenly, about 133 feet (40.3 meters) away, she
was startled to see a creature emerge from a clearing in
the woods.  She said that what she saw was tall and man-
like, and was estimated at about 8 feet (2.4 meters)
tall.  It was covered all over with long brown hair,
which looked to be about 12 inches (40 centimeters) in
length.  The creature's arms hung to the knees, and long
hair was hanging down from the arms.  The creature had
'big shoulders.'"
       "The (female) witness watched as the creature moved
from the tree line and crossed the field for a distance
of at least 100 feet (30 meters).  The creature was
slightly hunched as it moved, took big steps and quickly
covered a lot of distance.  The creature did not swing
its arms as it moved across the field."
       "At the end of the field was a barbed-wire fence.
What amazed the witness was that the creature never
slowed down or hesitated as it approached the fence.  It
crossed the fence without breaking stride.  The witness
watched as the creature moved its leg over the fence.
'It just walked over the fence.'"
       During his on-site investigation, Stan Gordon
"measured the height of the barbed-wire fence where the
creature had crossed."  The top strand of wire was "44
inches (110 centimeters) off the ground.  The creature
never headed towards the (witness's) vehicle.  The woman
was describing to her husband via the cell phone what she
was seeing.  She said that suddenly she became scared and
felt the need to 'leave quickly.'"
       Stan adds, "I had made many trips to this general
area in 1973, when a major outbreak of Bigfoot sightings
was occurring.  Not far away is the Chestnut Ridge.
Historically, numerous alleged Bigfoot sightings have
occurred at locations near the ridge, which extends from
Preston County, West Virginia through Westmoreland,
Indiana and Fayette counties here in Pennsylvania."

Hotline for these reports.)


SILVER SPHERE UFO SEEN IN
TULSA, OKLAHOMA

       On Tuesday, October 1, 2002, at 3:42 p.m., Keith L.
Partain was "at the intersection of Twenty-First and
Garnett in Tulsa, Oklahoma" when "I witnessed an object
in the south rising toward the zenith.  It was spherical
in shape and silvery in color.  I saw no wings or jet
contrail.  My best estimate of height (altitude--J.T.)
was several hundred feet, and its speed perhaps just
below supersonic."
       "It was visible only for about five to ten seconds;
then it vanished just a few degrees south of the zenith.
Its apparent diameter from my vantage point on the ground
was that of the planet Venus at its peak brightness.
However, Venus is not in the south, and this was in broad
daylight.  The weather was clear, with just a few large
cumulous clouds.  No storms present."  (Email Report)


SEVEN UFOs SPOTTED BY A
FAMILY IN NILES, OHIO

       On Saturday, August 31, 2002, at 10:50 p.m., J.W.
reported, "At a family get-together" in Niles, Ohio
(population 20,932) "we sat around a campfire,
reminiscing, joking, etc. During a lull in the
conversation, I leaned back in my chair to stare at the
stars."
       All at once, J.W. "observed five 'Stealth-like'
objects crossing the sky directly above.  The objects
were all of similar size.  They appeared vee-shaped,
large aircraft size, and in a 'single file' formation.
They were spread perhaps two lengths behind each other.
They had a luminous energy (aura--J.T.) to them, yet
emitted no white or colored light of any kind, not any
kind of sound."
       "After the five had disappeared from view, two more
like (similar) objects followed, passing overhead in the
same direction, to the north (towards Lake Erie--J.T.)"
       J.W. described the UFOs as "blackish-gray, vee-
shaped, like a flying wing.  Estimated altitude of 20,000
feet (6,000 meters), flying one to two times as fast as a
commercial jet seen at the same altitude."
       Niles, Ohio is about 20 miles (32 kilometers)
northwest of Youngstown.  (Email Form Report)


YELLOW UFO SIGHTED IN
BRITISH COLUMBIA

       According to Canadian ufologist Brian Vike, this
sighting took place near Houston, British Columbia,
Canada.  "On Thursday, October 3, 2002, the witness was
on the telephone with her daughter.  She was looking out
her kitchen window, which faces the Telkwa mountain
range.  She noticed a strange, pale, yellow-coloured
object traveling slowly below the horizon ( ridge in the
USA--J.T.) of the mountains.  She said it (the UFO) was
'completely round.'  The sky was clear except for some
low cloud/fog in some areas."
       "The witness told her daughter to hold on, dropped
the telephone and ran outside onto their patio deck to
get a better look at it.  At this time, the object rose
up against the skyline but still continued along its
(flight) path, which was in a southwesterly direction
heading towards the Morice River Road."
       "She said there were no wings or propellers which
would indicate the object being a normal aircraft."
       Houston, B.C. (population 3,934) is on Provincial
Highway 16 and is about 500 miles (800 kilometers) north
of Vancouver.  (Many thanks to Brian Vike for this
report.)


MYSTERIOUS DOOR FOUND
INSIDE THE GREAT PYRAMID

       "Scientists exploring the interior of the Great
Pyramid in Egypt sent a robot into the northern shaft
during" late September "discovering another 'blocking
stone.'"
       "The 'door' appears to be identical to the other one
in the shaft that was already known.  The doors are
equidistant (65 meters or 208 feet) from the Queen's
Chamber.  It is the third such block discovered within
the shaft of the pyramid."
       "The announcement of the discovery was made Monday,"
September 23, 2002, "by Farouk Hosni, Egypt's Minister of
Culture, and Dr. Zahi Hawass, Secretary-General of
Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities."
       "A specially-developed combination (tracked vehicle)
of robotics, cameras and lighting technology, developed
by iRobot of Boston," Massachusetts, USA "yielded the new
information."
       "Until the discovery, no one knew that the northern
shaft extended to the north as far as the southern shaft
goes to the south.  Prior explorations of the northern
shaft have failed because, unlike the southern shaft, the
northern shaft has a number of (these doors or) blocks
and sharp corners."
       "Dr. Hawass suggested that the layout of the
northern shaft may have been designed to avoid
intersecting with the pyramid's Grand Gallery."  (See
National Geographic News for September 23, 2002, "Third
'Door' found in the Great Pyramid."  Many thanks to Steve
Wilson Sr. for this article.)
(Editor's Comment:  There may also be branch shafts
further along the northern shaft.  In addition,
Illuminati founder Adam Weishaupt may have been right
when he said there were additional undiscovered chambers
in the pyramid.  The "sharp corners" in the shaft could
have been designed to avoid such chambers.  Clearly there
is more to the Great Pyramid than meets the eye.)


LARGE METEOR CRASHES
IN SOUTHERN SIBERIA

       "Residents of several villages in the region of
Irkutsk" in Russia, witnessed with a mixture of awe and
fear the fall of an enormous luminous object in southern
Siberia.  (Russian) scientists identified the object as a
meteor."
       "Several witnesses to the skyfall immediately
reached for the telephone and contacted the Institute of
Solar Physics of the Western Siberia Department of the
Russian Academy of Science.  The Emergency Situations
Ministry (Russia's answer to the USA's Federal Emergency
Management Agency or FEMA--J.T.) was notified due to the
commotion that the object's fall caused among the
region's population."
       "According to residents of the villages of Bodaibo,
Balajniniski, Mama and Kropotkin, the alleged meteorite
left a long trail in the sky before crashing violently in
the taiga (Siberian forest--S.C.)."
       "Witnesses more than 100 to 150 kilometers (60 to 90
miles) away from the point of impact noted that when the
object crashed, it caused a large tremor similar to that
of an earthquake, amid a deafening noise."
       "They also remarked that following the impact,
sporadic flashes of light were seen in the forested
hills."
       "Guelii Zherebtsov of the Institute of Solar Physics
noted that the celestial body must have been a very large
meteorite.  He added that preparations are being made to
visit the impact site, located between the villages of
Balajniniski and Kiajta."  (See Spain's EFE News Agency
report for October 3, 2002, "Large meteor strikes western
Siberia."  Many thanks to Scott Corrales and Gloria
Coluchi for sending along the EFE report.)


READER FEEDBACK:

THAT'S "SOTE," JOE

       Robert Fischer (France) writes, "In the report about
'Seagulls attack joggers in southern France,' I would
tell you that the name of the city is Sote and not Sate.
The town is also the one where the graves of Georges
Brassens, a French singer, and Paul Valery, a French
novelist, are located.  Keep on informing me!"


  From the UFO Files...

1954: A MAJOR UFO FLAP
            IN FRANCE

       One of the biggest European UFO flaps of all time
took place nearly half a century ago in France.  Sunday,
October 3, 1954, was the high water mark of this outbreak
of UFO sightings.
       "There were more than 30 good sightings that day.
Almost all of them occurred between 7:20 and 9:30 p.m.,
and they were grouped largely in two relatively small
areas on the map."
       "The first sighting was reported at Chereng, a
country village between Lille and Tournai," on France's
border with Belgium, "some six miles (10 kilometers) east
of Lille.  The weather was clear, the sky cloudless."
       "Suddenly, at 7:20 p.m., strollers a little to the
west of the village saw in the sky a kind of luminous
shape, traveling at a low altitude and at full speed.
When it reached the height of the footbridge spanning the
little Marque River, the object stopped, emitted what
seemed to be sparks, and descended."
       "The witnesses broke into a run and headed for the
bridge. But, at their approach, the object immediately
gained altitude and disappeared just as it had arrived.
The whole scene had lasted scarcely more than ten
seconds, in total silence."
       "At 8 o'clock, Mlle. Anne-Marie Perrut, daughter of
a policeman at Marcoing, 35 miles (56 kilometers) south
of Chereng, was looking out of her window when her
attention was drawn to a strange spectacle.  Several
hundred yards (meters) from the police station, above the
Gouillet woods, a luminous object hung motionless in the
air.  It was circular and orange-red in color.  A little
below this immobile object, and as though suspended from
it, she saw a small spot of light with a kind of see-saw
movement."
       "Mlle. Perrut watched for a moment, distrusting her
own eyes; then she called her father, who at first
refused to be disturbed.  After several minutes, as the
object was still there, Anne-Marie begged so insistently
that her father finally consented to come.  Then it was
the policeman's turn to ask himself if he were seeing
things, for there was the object, just as his daughter
had been telling him.  M. Perrut routed out his
colleages, policemen Faucambergue, Delande and Bleuzot
and their families; soon there were twenty witnesses."
       "After a moment, while the strange visitor continued
to remain motionless above the Gouillet woods, the
policemen sought other witnesses.  They stopped
bicyclists who passed the police station.  All could see
the same spectacle.  The luminous ball did not take off;
but it was seen from time to time to rise or descend
somewhat, apparently in a vertical line."
       "Shortly after 8:30 p.m., the object underwent a
sudden transformation; the spot of light suspended below
it disappeared, while the ball itself assumed a shape
like that of a cigar, or a disk viewed edgewise.
According to the police, it was then possible to estimate
its altitude at 1,800 to 2,000 feet (540 to 600 meters).
Almost immediately after its metamorphosis, the object
moved away horizontally in the shape of a crescent, as if
the disk had bent over; it then returned to the same
spot, remained there for a few moments, and finally took
off at great speed in the direction of Villiers-Plouich,
about three and a half miles (6 kilometers) to the south
of Marcoing; there, as it disappeared, it threw out a
beam of light so intense as to illuminate the sky several
seconds after the object itself had disappeared.  The
time was 8:45 p.m."
       "The next sighting began several minutes later, at a
point 33 miles (55 kilometers) southwest of Marcoing."
       "Several minutes after 8:45 p.m., while the Marcoing
witnesses saw the object disappear toward the southwest,
an automobile driven by Mme. Nelly Mansart of No. 8 Rue
de la Marliere, Amiens (in the department of Somme--
J.T.), was leaving Herissart.  With Mme. Mansart were two
other Amiens residents, M. and Mme. Delarouzee."
       "As the car was about to turn left into the Amiens
road, the three motorists suddenly saw, at low altitude,
a luminous ball in the sky, its color a brilliant orange.
On closer observation, its shape seemed to be 'like a
mushroom hat.'"
(Editor's Note: "Mushroom hats" were considered haute
couture by the women of the middle 1950s.  These wide-
brimmed hats looked like mushrooms without their stems.
Yes, kids, your great-grandmothers actually wore these
things back then.)
       "The upper part of the 'mushroom' appeared to
vibrate as it changed color from violet to greenish,
while short 'cables' of some kind hung from the bottom
surface.  The witnesses estimated the object's dimensions
at 20 or 25 feet (6 or 8 meters), its distance at 150
yards (135 meters)."
       "Mme. Mansart made the turn at the crossroad.  She
then perceived that the object, now almost at ground
level, had turned and was following her car, always at
the same distance.  The three motorists grew frightened.
Mme. Mansart speeded up, the sooner to reach Rubempre, a
village about a mile (1.6 kilometers) away, in the hopes
that the mysterious visitor would be intimidated by the
houses and go away.  In fact, it slanted off and
disappeared."
       "But hardly were the travelers clear of the village
than they again saw behind them, still almost level with
the ground and no distance away, the tenacious
'mushroom.'  It had detoured the village and now regained
the road."
       "The next village was Pierregot, a mile or so
distant.  The three motorists began to wonder what this
importunate follower wanted of them, and how it would
end.  At the outskirts of Pierregot, the same maneuver;
it slanted off and disappeared."
       "Mme Mansart continues, 'As we left Pierregot,
seeing that the object had rejoined us once again, I
stopped the car.  The 'saucer' continued on for three or
four hundred yards, and then it stopped, too, going
around in circles, almost on the ground.  I waited a
moment, then started the car again.  It (the UFO) again
took up its position and the pursuit.'"
       "'It was only when we entered Rainneville, six miles
(10 kilometers) from Amiens, that we saw the 'saucer'
leave us, and this time for good.  It turned off toward
the west, picked up speed, and disappeared with dizzying
rapidity in that direction.'"
