More Evidence for Life on Mars

Increased Solar Brightness and Warming

The Sun may have increased in brightness over the last couple of
decades as summarized in the following press release: Since the
late 1970s, the amount of solar radiation the Sun emits during
times of quiet sunspot activity has increased by nearly .05
percent per decade, according to the study. =E2=80=9CThis trend is
important because, if sustained over many decades, it could
cause significant climate change,=E2=80=9D said Willson, a researcher
affiliated with NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and the
Earth Institute at Columbia University. =E2=80=9CHistorical records
of solar activity indicate that solar radiation has been
increasing since the late 19th century,=E2=80=9D says Willson. =E2=80=9CIf a=

trend comparable to the one found in this study persisted during
the 20th century it would have provided a significant component
of the global warming.

Editor: The warming trend on the Earth appears to be caused by
the gradual warming of the sun.

Mars - Once Had Life

This meteorite, which originally weighed nearly 8 kilograms,
provided the first strong proof that meteorites could come from
Mars. EETA 79001 is an achondrite meteorite, a basalt lava rock
nearly indistinguishable from many Earth rocks. This picture
shows a sawn face of this fine-grained gray rock (the vertical
stripes are saw marks). The black patches in the rock are melted
rock =E2=80=94 glass =E2=80=94 formed when a large meteorite hit Mars near=

the rock. This meteorite impact probably threw EETA 79001 off
Mars and on its way to Antarctica on Earth. The black glass
contains traces of martian atmosphere gases. On August 7, 1996,
President Clinton and NASA announced to the world evidence of
fossil bacteria and organic material had been found on ALH
84001, a meteorite discovered in Antarctica that was believed to
have come originally from Mars. []

Martian Meteorite EETA 79001

Another meteorite found in Antarctica, EETA 79001 also indicates
life existed on Mars in relatively recent history. The
achondrite meteorite thought to be only 175 million years old
was blasted off Mars 600,000 years ago, indicating that life
existed on Mars in the relatively recent past. The black
patches in the rock are melted rock =E2=80=94 glass =E2=80=94 formed when a=

large meteorite hit Mars near the rock and the impact probably
threw EETA 79001 off Mars and sent it on its way to Antarctica.
The black glass contains traces of martian atmosphere gases.

This picture shows a sawn face of this fine-grained gray rock
(the vertical stripes are saw marks). Rocks as young as the SNC
meteorites had to have formed on a geologically active planet,
and the most likely planet was Mars. The Mariner 9 and Viking
Orbiter images had shown that Mars has enormous volcanos, up to
3 times as tall as Mauna Kea in Hawaii.

Mars -- Bunny Appears to Move

Last week we carried a story and photo of a small white cotton
object that was imaged by the Mars Rover. Gary Gene Ford a
graduate student in Mechanical and Aerodynamical Engineering
writes, "Lift and drag - both important in convecting light
weight objects - are related by (Attitude dependent) Drag and
Lift Coefficients, Cd and Cl, respectively, which multiply
(1/2)(Rho)(speed)^2, and then times exposed area A.

Now Rho is Air MASS DENSITY, which in the absence of micro and
nano particle dusts in the air (it occurs once in a while but
NOT often) of MARS, is extremely LOW, something like Earth Air
at 120,000 feet elevation - the Molecular Weight of Mars Air is
HIGHER than the 29 of Earth, due to Mars Air's 95% constitution
as Carbon Dioxide, with molecular weight 44, thus slightly
compensating for the approximately 1% or less Pressure at
Surface of Mars Air, compared to 1 bar of Earth Air at Sea
Level), giving a LOW LOW value at "low speed" for the fluid
factor (1/2)rho.v^2. To lift an Object, the fluid factor must be
larger than the Weight of the Object divided by its external
surface Area. in fact typically CONSIDERABLY LARGER than its
Weight per its unit exposed surface area.

This only obtains for very 'fluffy objects' (Air viscosity also
helps, as with Dandelion 'Puff' seeds), or else with objects of
very small size. Anything NOT very 'fluffy', of low mass
density hence weight density, and of small size IS UNLIKELY TO
BE BLOWN ANYWHERE in the Extant Super low Mass Density Martian
Air! THUS, the Rabbit must either be (1) Self Moving, (2) Moved
by something Self Moving (a stream of brine flowing downhill
would be a possibility), or (3) Fluffy and caught in a massive,
dust air mass density enhanced, high speed, Martian DUST STORM!

Mars - Possible Bunker Found?

Sam Veazey writes, "I have been researching the images from the
Spirit Rover and have discovered a group of objects that are
truely remarkable." There is what appears to be a large bunker
with what may be an observatory rising from a domed roof. There
is also what might be a transportation device that is located
just above and to the left of the bunker. At the right end of
the structure is what could be the entrance in the shape of an
archway. Thanks to Sam Veazey in White Plains, Georgia. []
Thanks to JPL for this photo that can be found at:


Editor's Note: Sam Veazey has found a concrete rectangle
appearing object just below the crest of the hill that is not
normally found in nature. Other similar objects with symbols and
faces have been found. We ask for comments from photographic
experts. That bunker like object looks very different from most
of the other rocks, so I suggest we drill a hole in it. What
possible reasons could NASA have for spending millions going to
Mars without carrying a couple pounds of equipment to test for

Oil Crisis Looming Will Dwarf 1973

CBS MarketWatch columnist Paul By Paul Erdman writes, "As the
price of crude oil keeps rising toward $40 a barrel and beyond,
it has become increasingly clear that the world is heading
toward a major oil crisis -- in terms of both price and supply -
- that will dwarf that of 1973. There can be no doubt that the
fall of the House of Saud would thrust the entire Western world
into an energy crisis of unprecedented proportions. For many of
us who have been observers of global energy trends for what now
amounts to decades, this has become not a matter of "if" but
rather one of "when." We are facing a convergence of three
forces that will have a potentially explosive effect on the
market for crude oil. They are:

1. A growing geopolitical crisis in the Middle East, which is
now threatening to spread beyond Iraq to Saudi Arabia, the
world's largest producer and exporter of crude oil.

2. A surge in global demand for energy and particularly crude
oil and its derivatives, fueled by the recovery of both the
American and Japanese economies and the unprecedented growth of
China, which has just replaced Japan as the world's second
largest consumer of crude oil.

3. A structural deterioration of the world's oil supply. What is
involved here is nothing short of an imminent peaking out of
production of crude oil on a global basis -- known by energy
industry insiders as "Hubbert's Peak" -- which would turn a
cyclical supply/demand crisis into a structural energy crisis of
unprecedented proportions. (snip)

Editor's Note: This data has been available to the government
for years and is part of the reason for the invasion of Iraq.
 The impending shortage of oil may stop the flow of food to your
local grocery store. World economics are at a critical point.

New York - Triangular Shaped Lights

ROME -- Three witnesses saw lights in the shape of a flying
triangle traveling at a constant speed high in the night sky on
May 9, 2004, at 10:45 PM. The lights were white and did not
waver in position nor did they blink as they traveled due south
in a very clear sky. It was a very large object that was
witnessed by two professionals and one student. Thanks to Peter
Davenport Director www.UFOCenter.com

New Jersey -- Four See UFO

FREEHOLD -- There was four observers on the porch just enjoying
the night on May 10, 2004, at 10:40 PM., when the boyfriend saw
it first and jokingly said "Look a UFO!" The observer states,
"We all looked up and realized, oh my God what else could it be
because we saw an orange circle and it wasn't moving steadily,
it was kind of wobbling like a Frisbee that you threw." But the
object stayed in the air much longer than that, and instead of
coming down like a Frisbee would it simply vanished into the
clouds. About two minutes later the second one appeared. This
one seemed to be flying sideways and it to disappeared within
seconds. What else could it have been? Thanks to Peter Davenport

Pennsylvania - Light

GIBSONIA -- While viewing Venus on May 8, 2004, at 11:30 PM, off
to the left and higher, there appeared at first to be a shooting
star. It was a very bright white light with no tail. It started
in an arc coming down in a 45 degree angle, and then began to
zigzag. The object stopped in the trees for at least 20 seconds
so the witness went to get his camera but upon returning it was
gone. The event lasted about two minutes. Thanks to Peter
Davenport Director www.UFOCenter.com

Maryland - Large Flying Triangle

KNOXVILLE -- The observers saw a large flying triangle of three
star-like lights moving noiselessly, slowly, and smoothly east
across the sky on May 8, 2004, at 11:40 PM. The object moved in
an arc across the sky of about 50 degrees, with each light
quickly fading individually as it passed a certain star near
Mars. The object occluded stars when it passed over them, but
later when we looked for further occlusion none was observed.
Our assumption was that we saw a formation of planes. We are on
Dulles Airport flight path and are use to seeing these aircraft
and this was not Dulles traffic. The time and rural location
would have made any sound audible. There was none. Thanks to
Peter Davenport Director www.UFOCenter.com

North Carolina -- Man Reports UFO Sighting

ROWAN - Jessie Burchette of the Salisbury Post reports,
"They're not sure whether it had a red tail, but Arnold and Lena
Crook have spent the last three nights watching a dancing
unidentified flying object. "It's a good ways up there, way
high up in the sky and a long distance off," said Crook, a
former Granite Quarry alderman. The far off encounter started
Monday night when he went outside his home at 305 N. Oak St. to
smoke a cigarette. Looking to the southeast, he saw a light that
"kind of danced around." He called to his wife to come out and
take a look at "a dancing star." "She said it was an airplane,"
said Arnold. "It's not an airplane, just wait and watch it jump
around," he assured her. "It" did a circle, and a square and
just kept kind of dancing. She was quickly convinced "it"
wasn't an airplane. Tuesday night, Lena joined Arnold to check
the sky, and there "it" was, just jumping around. Wednesday
night, they were back out and "it" had grown or had friends.
"Last night it was several lights, kind of like a big old box,"
said Arnold. Lena kept pointing out a red tail, but Arnold
disagreed. "I didn't see a tail," he said. They hadn't thought
much about it, or told anyone until Thursday. (snip) Thanks to
the Salisbury Post

Florida -- Flying Triangle Craft Disappears!

FT .LAUDERDALE BEACH -- At 3:35 PM, while on Pompano Beach we
watched a black triangle shaped object moving at high altitude
on May 8, 2004. We first thought it was a large military
aircraft, but the closer it came it was apparent that it was
huge in size and dwarfed commercial airliners flying into Ft.
Lauderdale/Miami Airports. We could see the contrail over the
Atlantic Ocean that was huge circles. The craft approaching land
went into a partial cloud cover, but you could see through the
cloud. We watched to see it come out of the cloud, but it simply
disappeared. We waited and looked around in other directions but
it was gone. Strangely the contrail stopped short of land and
the craft was just gone and the normally busy flight path was
empty of aircraft for at least a hour. The contrail stayed for
30 to 45 minutes. It was bigger than 10-15 commercial jets set
side by side. They would not have covered it, It was flying at
an estimated 35000 feet. I don't know, what it was or why
vanished. There was no sound. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

IIlinois - Flying Triangle

RUSHVILLE -- A couple went to a friends house to relax around
their camp fire on May 16, 2004, and noticed four falling stars
within about an hours time. Driving home they traveled a country
road and stopped about 2 AM, and noticed a light moving very
slowly across the sky. The witness states, "I pointed at the
lights and asked my girlfiend if she saw them? and she said
"What that triangle?" That's when I saw the third light
following behind forming a triangle. It looked like 3 stars
moving about five miles per hour but they stayed exactly the
same distance apart. We couldn't see the craft, but the stars
couldn't been seen within the area of the lights, so it was more
like watching a black triangular void with a star at each point
slowly moving across the sky. The craft was completely silent
and looked like it was about 100' above the trees. =D8=F8 We watched
the lights for about 10 minutes, until they were obstructed by
the trees. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.UFOCenter.com

Missouri - UFO Sighted By Two

ST. JOSEPH -- St. Joseph News-Press reports. "After witnessing
an unidentified flying object in the early hours of May 4, Ivana
Calhoun, a carrier for the St. Joseph News-Press, painted the
scene. "I'm positive I saw it but what it was, I don't know",
she said. A couple of rural St. Joseph News-Press carriers 100
miles apart see the same UFO! Ivana Calhoun and David Stafford
both claimed they did see something strange zip past their
windshields one morning this month. That Mrs. Calhoun, who was
delivering papers in rural McFall, Mo., saw the same object Mr.
Stafford saw while traveling through Grayson Mo., makes it even
stranger. =E2=80=9CI've never seen nothing like it, and I've seen
plenty of shooting stars. I'm out there every night. I know what
they look like,=E2=80=9D Mrs. Calhoun said. Mr. Stafford said he's
driven the same road a million times and never seen anything
like it, either. Not for several months, at least. =E2=80=9CAbout nine
months ago,=E2=80=9D he said, =E2=80=9CI saw one on the side of me, like
following me.=E2=80=9D For Mrs. Calhoun, Tuesday morning, May 4,
didn't seem out of the o=D8=F8 rdinary. After delivering a paper on
her route, she saw about 50 feet away and 50 feet up a
fluorescent orange sphere the size of a basketball zip across
her windshield.

The orb flew in a straight line and didn't make a sound, she
said. In less than three seconds, it was gone.=E2=80=9D It so
happened that Mrs. Calhoun was on her cell phone talking to Mr.
Stafford at the time. He was just leaving Grayson, Mo., when
he saw the same =E2=80=9CDay-Glo=E2=80=9D orange object about 30 feet
away. =E2=80=9CWe described it to each other, and it was the exact
same thing,=E2=80=9D Mr. Stafford said. =E2=80=9CI thought it was a
falling star, but it was going parallel to the ground. And
both of their watches read 3:45 a.m. Mrs. Calhoun made a
detailed report with the National UFO Reporting Center. She
was a guest on the =E2=80=9CJohn Rense Program,=E2=80=9D a nightly radio
show about UFOs. Mrs. Calhoun and Mr. Stafford both said the

Colorado - Stars Move in Perfect Formation

LITTLETON -- While looking up at the stars, two friends both
noticed at about the some time that a few stars appeared to be
moving, then faded from view at 11:15 PM, on May 8, 2004. They
pointed them out to the third person and they watched as the
stars continued to move in a large triangle formation. The
formation was much larger than any plane could have been, even
if it was flying at a low altitude. The formation was half the
area of the inside of the Little Dipper, which is where we first
spotted it. The object continued to move at a fairly good clip,
at one point obstructing the view of another stationary star,
until it faded from view. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Oregon - Sphere Release's Smaller Objects

SHERWOOD -- A pilot spotted an object overhead that looked like
a balloon at 5-10,000 feet in a clear sky with only a few
scattered cumulus clouds on May 8, 2004, at 1:45 PM. The
witness brought out his 8x42 binoculars and saw a sphere cluster
of about 5 spheres with a cord hanging down and a small object
at the bottom. He thought this could still be balloons so he got
his 18x50 image stabilized binoculars and noticed the cord and
the attached object had separated and was falling away. The
sphere's were about 5 to 10 feet in diameter. They were moving
with the upper level wind west to east at about 10 knots. The
spheres were not rotating or tumbling like balloons would and
were an off-white color. At about ten minutes duration, I
noticed three smaller sized spheres near but moving away from
the cluster. No planes or confirmed balloons were in the area.
Two minutes later, I noticed three smaller objects' closer to
the cluster and moving away at a slightly faster speed. After
some distance away from cluster, the smaller objects
disappeared. Size difference between cluster and small object's
would be like: pea to a golf ball. Then, focusing on the
cluster, I actually saw three smaller object's being released by
the cluster and this was repeated two more times.

LAKE OSWEGO -- As a long ti=D8=F8 me sky watcher and up close
daytime UFO witness, I believe this is not a balloon event and
not ordinary. No photos or video taken.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness via telephone, and he
sounds to us to be quite credible. PD)) Thanks to Peter
Davenport Director www.UFOCenter.com

Colorado -- Flying Triangle Sighting

DENVER -- This morning, at about 3:35 AM, the witness went out
in the back yard for a smoke on May 10, 2004, and saw a pretty
amazing sighting. He noticed a star moving, then another near
it. After checking to make sure it wasn't illusory movement, he
noticed a third. He states, "Basically, it was a triangular
formation, two lights leading with the third trailing them." The
formation came in from the south-east and as the trio passed
directly overhead, a fourth "appeared", joined the trio, and
seemed to drop in altitude (perhaps because it definitely grew
much larger and brighter than the other three). The fourth came
in from the east, then changed course and speed to match the
trio; the fourth partner sped off ahead of the trio to the
north-east. The trio followed slowly, taking about 3 minutes to
cross the sky and disappear. By the way, I say "trio" rather
than "HUGE black triangle" because the stars only seemed to dim
and blur as the triangular formation crossed them, rather than
completely blocking stars as I expect an intervening triangular
vehicle would. Anyway, I was amazed and felt fortunate.

California -- UFOs Videotaped

MODESTO -- R. David Anderson writes, "I have had a busy week
taking several pictures of UFOs. These were moving above my
house at about 1, 000 ft or lower depending on how large they
are in size. Today ( Sat ) after taking pictures of a UFO which
was hovering in the East ( in windy conditions! ) a big plane
was circling our house. I looked at it in binoculars and it had
U.S.A.F. emblems on the wings. [] Thanks to R. David Anderson

SACRAMENTO -- A white UFO was observed by Jeff Challender and
his family moving against the wind. The object Candy apple red
UFO with a fin at end with a yellow flange with a red Saturn
like UFO. There was a strobe on leading edge of craft on May 3,
2004. The object was seen at 9:15 AM near the American River.
Thanks to Jeff Challender

Canada -- Seven Fast Objects

EDMONTON -- On May 10, 2004, at 12:45 AM, the witness was
looking northeast out a large picture window when he saw a
meteor shower in the northwest sky. However, the way the lights
were traveling made him quickly realize they were not meteors.
I went out my front door and watched as they moved like birds
flying south. There were seven objects moving at about the same
speed but changing places. The creepiest part of the whole
experience was that they didn't seem too far off and they where
completely silent. I am involved with jet car racing and know
that to attain a speed like what I witnessed would have to
involve some sort of afterburning jet engine that would create
and incredible amount of noise at that altitude and speed. They
appeared to fly from Fort Saskatchewan towards the Camrose area.
I was a bit 'creeped' out about the sighting. Thanks to Brian

Panama - Bright light in the Sky

RIO HATO -- The eight witnesses were at a World War II US
military installation, 108 kilometers west of Panama City on the
Pacific coastline on May 9, 2004, at 1 AM. The group of eight
neighbors observed unusual light activity inland to the north of
their location at the Costa Blanca Golf and Resort. First, we
observed three different circular steadily bright white lighted
objects shoot across the sky five to ten minutes apart. Five
minutes later they observed a narrow line of bright white light
moving parallel. As the line was continuing to move, suddenly a
bright white oval appeared for one to three seconds, and then
changed back into a single narrow bright white light. We
observed the sequence of light pattern twice and then they
completely disappeared. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Mexico's DoD Releases UFO Evidence

MEXICO CITY -- On May 11, 2004, an international press
conference was held to announce the findings of a joint official
and private effort to investigate a UFO sighting. The
Department of Defense collaborated with a top Mexican UFO
researcher, Jaime Maussan, in the release of information
concerning the appearance of eleven UFO's near a Mexican Air
Force Merlin C26/A flight that was on a drug surveillance
mission on March 5, 2004, about 5 PM, about an hour before
sunset. Using infrared cameras and radar tracking, the eight-man
crew of the flight was able to monitor the UFOs, which at one
point formed a circle around the flight.

General Clemente Vega Garcia, the Secretary of Defense released
the tracking data to Maussan in an amazing gesture showing a
willingness to work with private investigators. This is one of
few times a government has been willing to share evidence
showing UFOs are real. The data was released on May 9, 2004 by
Maussan on his popular television program 'Great Mysteries of
the Third Millennium' and was shown all over the world. Maussan
was initially contacted on April 20, by the Department of
Defense and had a meeting the next day. The Secretary of Defense
also provided the evidence to international media outlets in an
unprecedented new approach to dealing with the UFO phenomenon by
a major world government.

Major Magdaleno Casta=C3=B1on, Command pilotcan be heard in the
video: "Put on your seatbelts" "Don't scare me." The UFOs came
within two miles and should have been seen visually since it was
still daylight but were clearly seen on infrared cameras that
register heat.

"I wouldn't know how to identify it...but they must be
completely real," said Lt. Mario Adrian Vazquez, operator of the
infrared equipment, who insisted that tampering with said images
was impossible. Eleven targets were not detected on the RADAR
screen, while sixteen objects were picked up on the FLIR. Three
targets were detected by the RADAR, but the other ones on our
left side never appeared on the RADAR. Gradually, the UFOs seem
to surround the aircraft in what appeared as intelligent

Jaime Maussan called upon Mexican scientists to research the
UFO phenomenon in order to render an opinion and "not dismiss
videos a priori that show the existence of intelligence of
unknown origin" and that "astronomers or other scientist quit
their prejudiced notions and cease deriding those who have
studied the phenomenon and know that there is intelligent life
present [from other worlds] as fools, madmen, dreamers or

Mexican astronomer Jose de la Herr=3DE1n provided his scientific
arguments regarding the impossibility that [the lights] could be
alien spacecraft, as has been speculated. He claims that they
could have been meteorite fragments. He explained that when a
meteor crashes into the Earth's atmosphere, it shatters into
many pieces which appear as though they were static and aligned
with one another as they give off an intense glow. "And of
course, people who do not know such phenomena occur interpret
them in many ways upon seeing them. For example, they can say
they were alien spaceships by virtue of having seen them."

Rafael Navarro of the Plasma Chemistry and Planetary Study
Laboratory of the UNAM Institute of Nuclear Science, added that
these are undoubtedly unidentified spherical objects shown by
the Air Force, but under no circumstances do they show the visit
of alien spacecraft. The space scientist told "Cronica" that it
is almost certainly "space junk" resulting from hundreds of
satellites burning up upon reentry into earth's atmosphere after
finishing their service cycle. The Mexican scientist cautioned
that UFO reports may increase, since humanity is launching an
increasing number of satellites that will burn up as they are
attracted by Earth's gravity. Navarro regretted that these
speculative news items should exert such a hold on the public's
imagination as opposed to serious efforts conducted in Mexico
and elsewhere in the world to detect the presence of
extraterrestrial life. -- Thanks to Translation (c) 2004 Scott
Corrales Institute of Hispanic Ufology (IHU) Editor's Note: It's
important to note that the Mexican Secretary of Defense
conducted a complete investigation with their own team shortly
after the March 5, 2004 incident and also with the help of
scientists and experts selected as government advisors. The
investigation was conducted confidentially and followed every
procedure required and were inconclusive. It was not until April
20, 2004, when General Clemente Vega, Secretary of Defense
decided, with his staff, to contact Jaime Maussan as an advisor
to aid in the investigation to conduct an independent study and
analysis of the C26A data. All the facilities were given to
Jaime as well as authorization to access the files and
interrogate the crew. The conclusions are clear, they were UFOs
-- solid objects of unknown origin - flying in airspace along
with the Merlin C26A. The Secretary of Defense accepted the
Maussan research team's conclusions as an unexplained event.

Editor's Note: Based on the limited information available it
seems unlikely that either plasmas, or space debris would
surround and remain near the aircraft for a significant period
of time. The fact that the objects were picked up on both
infrared and radar would indicate they were generating heat and
were relatively solid objects. Although, heavy rain can be
picked up on radar, the edges are almost always fuzzy in
appearance. The objects had relatively sharp edges indicating a
fairly solid object flying at 11,000 feet much higher than Earth
lights and similar phenomenon. These were clearly unidentified
flying objects UFOs that were not observed in the visual
spectrum. Their maneuvers seemed to indicate intelligence.
This does not infer they were alien spaceships. However, if they
were advanced military aircraft they have capabilities far in
advance of known technology.

Up to recently, few UFO sightings have been acknowledged by
governments although significant 1999 COMETA Report was released
by former top French military officials. The COMETA report can
be seen at the Skywatch International website.

The Mexican Department of Defense effort in collaborating with
Maussan helps legitimate research into the UFO phenomenon and
perhaps will encourage other countries to follow suit. The US is
becoming increasingly isolated in its strict non-disclosure
policy. If major world governments begin disclosing
information concerning contemporary UFO sightings, then it may
be predicted that the non-disclosure policy in place for over 50
years may soon come to an end. With our findings of intelligent
life at least in the past on Mars, the political implications of
an extraterrestrial presence could dominate global politics.

Thailand - Hundreds of Floating Stars

Bangkok -- A couple lives in a high rise apartment building
on the 17th floor in the middle of the city so they have a
spectacular view. On May 7, 2004, at 11:48 PM, they were
watching TV when the husband told his wife, "There were sparks
in the sky." They saw there was something peculiar. At first
there was only a few of these red lights or these red star like
objects. There was a tall building blocking a part of my
panoramic view of the sky, so it looked like these objects were
coming from behind that building. And then it kept on coming,
lots and lots of it... I'd say hundreds or more, lots of them!

And they floated upwards toward the sky slowly, dispersing
themselves as they moved, distancing themselves from each other.
There was no sound and we were just watching it in awe. I have
never seen anything like it. I'm a UFO skeptic and also a
backyard astronomer. I'd like to call this a natural phenomenon,
but nothing fits the description. Whatever it is that I saw I
highly doubt that its a meteor shower, because it doesn't come
from a point in the sky. Rather it comes from just above the
horizon and floated upwards, traveling from west to north of the
night sky before it disappeared slowly. It wasn't fireworks
either, there was no noise at all. I'm pretty sure other people
must have seen it, because it happened in the center of Bangkok.
