Hi List

Well all I can say is what an interesting day. I have lost count
as to how many sighting reports came in. New and old reports,
mostly for British Columbia and other parts of Canada and the
United States.

Take care


Huntsville, Alabama (30 miles south)

Hello Brian.

I have an account I would like to share with you. I live just 30
miles south of Huntsville and have seen some strange objects in
the sky where I live. Since you listed the pilots reports about
some of their strange sightings I would like to share with you
what I saw one winter eve. On Feb. 10, 1999 that night at 8:15
p.m. central I was outside enjoying the clear skies and
beautiful stars evident in the winter months. I was watching
what appeared to be a commercial airliner traverse the skies
from south to north towards Huntsville. As the airliner got to
approx. 45 degrees above horizon while I was fixed watching it,
suddenly a brilliant white "star" like object (round and approx.
4-8 feet in diameter) just appeared out of nowhere above and
behind the airliner. It just blinked on and was at a estimated
distance of perhaps 5-8 miles in the planes 9:00 position.

The light was motionless (for maybe .2-.3 second) after
appearing then it zoomed down to the planes port side to a
distance of approx. 1/4 mile away from the planes wing and the
same apparent altitude. Once it reached this position it paced
along the left side at the same speed as the airliner. I ran
inside and got my wife and kids to come and watch as the object
remained along side the plane until out of sight. The amazing
thing about this incident was the objects speed. I've since
given thought and some calculations as to the speed the object

Since looking into the vastness of the space makes it difficult
to determine exact distances but speculating distances and time
the object traveled I surmised the object was at least 5 miles
and possible as much as 8 miles away (assuming the airliner was
at a typical altitude of between 28,000-32,000 ft. as a
reference of distance from object to plane) and took only .3-.4
second to make up the distance that would equate to a velocity
of between 45,000 to 96,000 mph. Pretty amazing to watch an
object go from zero to 96,000 mph in an instant. The area where
I live has in the past been a hot bed of UFO activity. One world
known event occurred in Fyffe AL (1991 I think) where a
cylindrical object was seen by hundreds of people including
friends of mine. The object hovered over pastures where cattle
mutilations were found the following day. One of my friends
watched one eve coming home from work as it hovered and
maneuvered slowly over a wooded area near Blountsville AL and
shined a brilliant red beam to the ground. The next day the area
was taped off with yellow tape and a crew resembling a bio-
hazard team was scouring the area.

I have done some research into older cases that date back to the
early forties and before. One was a coworker of my wife that saw
a disc shaped object hovering above their farms pasture. Once
the man (a boy of 10 at the time) approached the object it
instantly disappeared. He described it as metallic brushed
aluminum color, 40' in diameter and 10-12 feet thick as a
perfect disc shaped and top/bottom equidistant from the center
edge. This occurred in 1942. Another incident dating to 1938
where another acquaintance and a buddy was deer hunting in
eastern Tennessee and saw a large disc craft between two
mountains as he described "down in a deep hollow" move slowly
below mountain peeks as if searching for something (wildlife?).
I tried to shake him in his conviction to see if he would stick
with his story and he told me "so help me God we saw
this......and we didn't tell anybody for a long time."

I am convinced that our government knows more than they are

Thanks for your time.

Thank you to the witness for this wonderful report.
