In Case You Missed It...
Billy Cox

Ever Google "UFO News" just to check up on current events? Kind
of amazing to read what the national/international media serve
up in the space of a week.

Let's see, there's apparently a flap under way in Australia's
Northern Territories:


and Kentonline in the United Kingdom reports that some people
were so impressed with shapeshifting lights near Westbrook, they
took it to the press:


Also in England, Brits hosting an outdoor barbecue grabbed some
UFO footage near Grantham; it's posted at:


The UK's Ardrossan Herald:


reports how a couple of neighborhood burghers were... well, De
Void can't produce a better verb than this:

"Alison Kelly was in Adams Road in Saltcoats at the same time
when she saw the unusual light and she and her family were
gobsmacked at the sight."

Gobsmacked. I'm envious.

Also last week, retired Brazilian Air Force general Jose Carlos
Pereira, who once presided over the Brazilian Airspace Defense
Command, was the latest military official to go on record and
call for the declassification of government UFO documents. Easy
for him to say. "Regarding material evidence," Pereira asserted,
"we have none."

De Void's favorite is two-year-old footage that's just making
the Internet rounds. It's from a Mexican town called Nuevo Leon,
and this sucker looks like something out of the Wizard Of Oz.
The wording at the end of this link says it all:


Meanwhile, closer to home, The Reporter-Herald in Loveland,
Colo., went with how local witnesses called in about
shape-shifting diamond lights. In Montgomery, Ala., WSFA-TV
opened an April 26 story this way: "Friday night and into today,
our newsroom has been flooded with people inquiring about a
strange sighting in the western sky."

Houston's KHOU-TV felt compelled to give airtime to two women
who saw a "bright blue-green light" that made a hard right-angle
turn over a bridge leading into Baytown, at:


KWGN in Denver reported on how a guy named Jeff Peckman is
attempting to enlist 4,000 signatures for a municipal ballot
initiative establishing an Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission.
Peckman argued that city authorities need to be prepared to deal
with public apprehension in the event of accelerating UFO

In Las Vegas, Review-Journal columnist John L. Smith noted how
the USAF recently decided to retire the F-117A. Smith suspected
the Stealth fighters - being replaced by the F-22 - were largely
responsible for UFO sightings over Nevada, and that the drawdown
might be bad for business.

Most at risk: gigs like the Alien Research Center, which peddle
T-shirts showing cows being beamed up into flying saucers along
with the message, "Some call it mutilation. We call it
barbecue." The guy who runs the joint, George Harris, is the
finance chairman for the Nevada Republican Party.

Again - this is just one week's worth.
