Subject: Lumberton NJ Witnesses To Respond

To the List:

I have sent all of the List Members comments to the witnesses of
the Lumberton, NJ, sighting, and they have promised to respond.
The husband reported that they will attempt to have their
responses prepared, and posted to the list, sometime today. I
felt that it would be better for the witnesses to respond, than
for me to respond on their behalf.

I will send them the UFO UpDates posts for today, August 08th,
as well.

NUFORC has updated its database of sighting reports. There are
approximately 440 new, or revised, cases among those posted last
night. I will have the homepage updated later today, as well.

To continue the exchange about the strange fireballs, I copy
below one of the better reports NUFORC has received recently. It
can be seen here on the website, as well:


I have spoken, at length, with this witness, and as his
credentials would suggest, he is a very skilled witness. He
stated that he would send the two photos to NUFORC.

Members might also enjoy reading the reports from Kingman, AZ,
for the evening of August 4th, 2011. I provide a link to the
reports for August:




[Begin Report]

Two red light/balls buzz Waukegan to Kenosha and disappear to
the east over Lake Michigan

On Sunday night, July 31, 2011, just before 11:00 p.m., my wife
and I were seated in chairs, hers facing south, mine north, on
the dock in front of our boat at the Kenosha Marina, Lake
Michigan, WI. We were generally just appreciating the beautiful
evening, and looking at all the bright stars we could see
overhead. Both of us commented on how unusually clear the night
sky was.

Kenosha underlies takeoff and arrival routes from both Chicago
and Milwaukee airports, plus the smaller airports of Waukegan,
Kenosha, and Racine. I personally am an Airline Transport Rated
pilot with more than forty years of flying experience in many
different types of aircraft, with over 20,000 flight hours,
flying corporate jets the past 32 years. I spend a lot of time
watching the sky for aircraft and take pride in how many types I
can identify as they pass overhead.

Shortly before 11:00 p.m. my wife commented, "You should look at
this airplane."  I said, "I really don t feel like twisting
around to look at another airplane." She said, "You really
ought to look at this."

I turned around in my chair and looked to the south. What I saw
was a bright red light/ball low in the sky moving south to north
toward us at what appeared to be a fairly low altitude at a high
rate of speed.

I jumped up from my chair to get a better view.

In a matter of just maybe 15 seconds, the red light/ball grew
rapidly larger. This light/ball had none of the normal aircraft
navigation, strobe, or recognition lights normally found on

Suddenly, the light/ball made a sharp right turn to the east
over Lake Michigan and accelerated at an astonishing rate as it
climbed out of sight in to the distance.

The entire time of observation was approximately 45 seconds.

My wife said, "What was that?" I said," have absolutely no
idea. I ve never seen anything like it."

Stunned, we both returned to our chairs and sat down.

Shortly, she said, "Here comes another one."

I jumped up out of the chair, turned around and observed what
appeared to be the same type and color object repeat the same
maneuver. I grabbed my cell phone and took two pictures. One
in "normal"; the object appears to be a small bright dot between
the sailboat masts.

I then zoomed in max, and as expected it was very shaky/blurry,
but the red color of the object is obvious.

Because I do not know the size of the objects it is difficult to
estimate the distance they were from us. They appeared to be
several miles away. It was a quiet night, but we heard
absolutely no sound from the objects.
