Welcome to the World-Wide UFO Sightings Database. Our database is an ongoing project
to include and cross references UFO sightings reported from around the globe. We try to make our database available online
for other researchers to use. We encourage other research sites, to take and cross reference any of our sightings reports
including them within their own databases and website where they see fit. All that we ask in return is that if they see a
correlation, within our area, that they report it to us, with witness names and contact details, so that we may follow these
up for confirmation

Merry Hill, Dudley
Images showing a UFO allegedly hovering over Dudley’s
Merry Hill centre have been posted on the internet.
Jamie Gardner, from Wolverhampton, said
he captured a video recording of a triangular-shaped UFO floating over the Black Country shopping centre while he was walking
to a friend’s house near Netherton hill.
The sighting has echoes of the infamous “Dudley
Dorito” which was seen flying over the area during 2007 and 2008.
Mr Gardner, who posted his recording
online at www.expressandstar. comUFO spotted going to the shops said: “I noticed something hovering in the sky in the
distance above Merry Hill, so I got my mobile phone straight out to film the object. After looking closely at it, the craft
“I’ve done some research and it might
be called the Aurora Project, a hypersonic jet which the US government created in the 80s but denied its existence until recently.”
Mr Gardner claims the same craft has been seen throughout
the UK over the past few years
However, paranormal expert Philip Francis, founder
of a UFO blog The Multiverse, said he was sceptical about the footage.
“I found this video of interest,”
he said. “Not because of its incredible nature but because of the lack of any witness statement to go with it. A full
transcript of time day and place and situation is absolutely essential, otherwise it will be disregarded and automatically
“If the person is not prepared
to swear the authenticity of the footage, then it should be put in the bin.”
And another UFO spotter, Mark Evans, believes the
video looks the same as one which has been posted on YouTube for the last two years.
Last October, a photograph of the Dudley Ddorito
was hailed as an important piece of evidence of alien life.

Lichfield, West Midlands
It was a dark night and an extremely bright object could be seen through the clouds
on November 27, 2005, at 3 AM. It instantaneously moved 3-4 miles back and forth, so quickly you didn't see it move. At one
point it looked slightly triangular but its speed and intensity of light made it look very odd.
We took a pretty poor quality photo on the cell phone, where you can make out the
offside door pillar as a point of reference and the camera was pointing up and the photo taken in the rear passenger seat.
I don't know what the square shape is, at first I thought it was the car mirror but that wasn't in view of the camera. There
also is a tree looking object, but there were none that close. There was no camera flash nor were there any lights on that

Greene County, Ohio
A severe storm passed over Greene County, Ohio September 19, 2005. The witness who
reported the following report was outside trying to capture some lightening photos with my digital camera at 10:30pm when
he noticed this group of lights passing overhead. Note the smaller light (left side of frame) trailing behind the larger group
of lights. Two things were unusual about these lights; (1) He has never known a plane to fly through such severe
weather and (2) He could not hear a sound coming from this object, which appeared to be flying just under the cloud
CLOSE UP OF THE OBJECT
The witness included a picture that he zoomed in as tight as possible without creating
too much distortion. The tight shot certainly reveals some detail of what appears to be a solid shape. I would appreciate
hearing from anyone who may be able to better analyze this photograph.
Both pictures are unaltered in any manner other than to zoom the grouping of lights. The
camera I used was a Sony DCP-150

Witness Hee Joo Kim reported watching three types of UFOs on August 20, 2005, in a
clear sky with some clouds from 4 to 5:30 PM. My camera is Sony DSC-F707 attached with skylight filter. I went out to take
a picture about 4 PM, near my house when I saw a very bright white and circular object move towards the west. It was not moving
too fast, so I watched until it disappeared behind a cloud. I think that was about a few minutes. I took some pictures of
that, but my camera was in Shutter Time priority mode. The shutter speed was 1/20th, so the image was too bright to analyze.
The second sighting was a black disk type object that was very fast and too far away to
take a picture. After downloading my camera I found only a black small point. The third time I took these photos of the UFO,
hovering around my area.
One UFO was right over on my place and very close. The UFO was on top of the ten meter wide
road. So I took about 10 pictures. Fortunately, I succeeded to take four pictures. When I first watched the UFO, it was black
and emulated a bright light intermittently and rotated left to right. After downloading the image files and opening them,
the image of the UFO was close to a blue color. I watched the object for about 3 minutes. The UFO disappeared from my sight
to the South."

Agnes Sroczynski reported, that on July 30, 2005, about 10:30 PM, I went out on my
friend's balcony with her and her nephew. We witnessed several strange objects in the sky, that were too high up and difficult
to see. Then I noticed an object hovering lower in the clouds, at about 2000 feet or less, flashing a white light sporadically.
It took my friends a moment to find it, but as soon as they saw it, the nephew ran inside to grab binoculars. He has the sharpest
vision of the three of us, and was able to make out up to three lights. Through the binoculars, I saw that this object appeared
silvery, metallic, and disc-shaped. It was smaller than the discs that I'm accustomed to seeing. At one point, it rose ever
so slowly by a few metres, and stayed there until we went inside. We observed it for about fifteen minutes. It was in the
sky for so long that I left to go home before it vanished! This was in the Flemington Park area of Toronto which, once again,
seems to be a particularly active location for strange phenomenon.

A second unidentifiable flying object has been spotted in the
sky above Bracknell.Last week the Bracknell News revealed that residents living near the Coppid Beech Hotel
saw what they thought was an alien space craft.Now another witness has reported seeing a strange object in
the sky above Bracknell, and he wants help identifying what it might have been.
Terry Campbell said he and two colleagues were installing a new synthetic hockey
pitch off Ringmead in Birch Hill around 3pm on Sunday, June 26 when he saw what he describes as an object the shape of an
ashtray in the sky. Mr Campbell, a surface technician said the sky was clear and blue.
He said: "Imagine a round ashtray - a deep round ashtray. It was stationary, but
the sunlight was glistening on the paintwork or metal work."
Mr Campbell added: "It was like somebody holding a mirror and flashing it on and
off in your eyes - there was sunlight off the side of it."
He said: "To the naked eye it could certainly be the third of the size of an average
Mr Campbell said the trio watched the object for about 15 minutes and it appeared
to be hovering.
Clouds then went across the sky, and when they had cleared the object was gone.
Mr Campbell said: "There was nothing frightening or alarming about it other than
the fact it was there.
"We didn't know whether it might have been a weather station, or satellite or
He said: "There's hundreds of things up in the sky, there could be a logical explanation.
"I just want a simple explanation. If there's not then obviously my eyes are open
to the fact there could be UFOs out there."

At around 2:10 AM, A train engineer and another railway worker witnessed a multicolored
cigar shape object low in the sky. The engineer at Coventry Station was Driving locomotive 66537 (4006) About half a mile
before Cov station I noticed at about a 35 degree angle from eyesight a large green light above Coventry City Centre. It appeared
to be stationary and was a steady light. Getting closer to the station the light turned to a steady red or slightly orange
glow. I couldn't remain in permanent focus with the object because I was running on to a red signal. I observed that the light
had a tube like shape and a red light at the rear.
I would guess that it was only about a couple of
hundred feet in the sky and was moving northeast over Coventry. There was no noise I could hear but then again I was in a
66 locomotive. Also there was a rail grinding machine on the down slow platform and the driver of that was on the platform
watching the UFO. Maybe it was a barrage balloon or Zeppelin type craft? But why the steady light not flashing plus I have
never seen these at night and also it appeared to be thin and tube like.

Conrad Faraj and his friends
were filming this short home movie when something came flying from the other side of their neighborhood. It didn't look
like an airplane but like a circular light. It kept on changing colors and forming weird triangular lights. They had
four cameras and one happened to snap a picture of it right when it was zooming away. It was a really scary moment. "The picture
of the UFO turned out to be kind of dark, and we still can't figure out why".
All of this happened May 6th 2005 in Mason, Ohio.

Witness report :
I live in New Jersey ( USA) and I saw something really
strange on Wednesday April 27 around 11:30pm-12:00am and then I heard these high speed airplanes (about two or three) braking
the sound barrier as if they were after something. I could not sleep and I have been haunted by what I saw and sense that
something is really wrong. the mainstream media never mention anything until a short radio announcement in NPR today( Saturday)
that the president and the vicepresident had to be taken to bunkers on Wednesday because of some kind of aerospace security
situation. Something is going on and I want to know what . Can you help?Have anyone else seeing anything? please ,I need some
peace of mind.

On Thursday, April 7, 2005 at about 1pm, A woman
was eating lunch outside at work. It had been a clear but windy day. As she sat at a picnic table, facing
south a shadow fell over her and some of her work collegues. She told TSM "I think an odd sensation came with the shadow.
I looked skyward, over the rooftop of one of our buildings and creeping over the edge was a vapor cloud, with tissue like
edges. I saw light within the cloud. The light appeared to be moving in a clockwise direction. At
first it made me think it was a rainbow, but it was horizontal. I got up from my seated position and was able to get
a better view. It was a complete and perfect circle of light, golden-white-irridescent, inside this tissue edged but
dark grey cloud ".
It was huge! There were about 8-10
people in the area. I said......., "Oh wow, that is amazing!!" On person responded by saying, "I've seen that
before, it happens alot here." I said a disbeliving, "really". I looked at this for a moment, it reminded me of a scene
from "Independence Day", the feeling of being under a belly of a mother ship.
Additionally, I was dumbstruck by the lack of concern
or reaction to this type of event. I felt like my coworkers and associates were robot-like in their unfeeling non-reactive
response. I noticed that they were not looking at the sky, but were watching my reaction..... Unnerved, I sat and finished
my lunch, I wish that I could have watched more.

San Pedro, California
On March 14, 2005 at 8:30PM
in San Pedro, California near 3rd and Gaffey up from the harbor. I was standing on my back porch which faces in a
westerly direction. I was making a crude star chart to research and I.D. some of the constellations I could see. It was a
beautiful, clear night with a few small clouds and a nice crescent moon. I was fairly intent on the sky trying to make sure
I got the major stars in their proper position. As I'm looking up I see off to my right 2 glowing orbs moving directly together
at what had to be a high rate of speed. They were moving in a very straight line in a generally south west direction side
by side, closely together. Their path from horizon to horizon took maybe 5 to 6 seconds and then they, for a lack of better
words, disappeared. The objects appeared to be glowing and were orange in color. If I had to guess at their size from my viewpoint,
I d say about the size of dimes, maybe more oval than perfectly round. I have an amateurs interest in astronomy and have done
lots of star gazing over the years. I I've seen meteor showers, comets, missile launches, etc. This was like none of those.
After they passed, I was a little shaken, not quite sure what I had just seen. I walked back in and called a friend. I had
to share this with someone! After I got off the phone I walked back out and was staring to the skies, a little stunned. After
about 5 minutes (approx. 8:45pm) to my amazement I see another group of those glowing lights, this one containing a fairly
tight cluster of maybe 5. These were higher and looked a lot smaller. These were moving in a more westerly direction and their
passage lasted maybe 3 seconds. These appeared to be flying higher or further away, so I couldn't comment on shape, but they
definitely had that same orange glow. I go back in call my friend again. I come back out and continue to stare at the skies
in amazement. I guess about 10-15 minutes! Later, (around 9:00pm) I see one more cluster, maybe 6 or 7 of them this time,
moving at about the same position and direction as the second cluster. I continued to scan the sky for maybe 20 minutes more,
but didn't see anything else after that. I went in and made some notes and drew a picture of what I saw on the star chart
I was making. I've been checking the news and the internet, hoping to find something that would explain this sighting, but
haven t seen anything other than similar sightings from different times in the past. I called the local police station to
see if possibly there were other reports or info they might have. They directed me to call NASA, which I haven t done but
may. I was really hoping there would be a logical explanation for this incident, but I haven't found it yet.

A co-worker’s 13-year old
son was in his back yard in Westwego, LA, taking a picture of the sunset on 04 Mar 05. When he downloaded his pictures to
his computer he noticed a spot in the top center of the photo (first photo). When you enlarge the area you see a triangle
with lights on each tip (second photo). If you look even closer, you can see a black dot to the right and above the triangle
(close-up of this in third photo). Westwego is directly across the Mississippi River form New Orleans.
visitors got tired of the great southwest and decided to visit the “City That Care Forgot”. With a parade almost
every week and all of the unique and colorful people in the French Quarter, an alien, no mater what he looks like could mingle

A series of moving bright lights were spotted in the sky off Scarborough –
cementing claims that the East Coast is the UFO capital of Europe.
Pat Glenwright, of Grange Avenue, saw the lights shoot
across the sky at 4.30pm on the 31st of January 2005.
She said: "There were about 14 so it definitely wasn't an aeroplane.
They were flying in a group and it looks from here as though they were the size of lightbulbs."
A friend added: "They
were bright and were very high up. It was very noticeable.
"They were coming from right and left and looked as though
they were heading towards Whitby."
In December Chris Parr, of the British UFO Hunters group, said the coastal area
between Filey and Scarborough was the British hotspot for UFO activity.
Filey UFO hunter Russ Kellett said there are
more recorded sightings of UFOs in Filey and along the East Coast than anywhere else in the country.

Bridgewater - Somerset
Mr J Parsons reported that he was witness to a strange triangular shaped
craft, and contacted the National Institute of Discovery Science (NIDS) to report his sighting. Truth Seekers Midlands contacted
Mr Parsons through the msn group-UFO Chasers, and asked him if it would be ok to add his report to our database. The following
report is by Mr Parsons in his own words:
I believe I saw a black triangle craft last night:
Last night I was driving my son to his karate class. It was 18:10
and dark. We were waiting at some traffic lights in town when my eye was caught by a low-flying object crossing the road ahead
and disappearing to the right behind some buildings.
'Wow!' I said to my son. 'That plane's really low'. It
seemed to be only 60 or 70 feet or so off the ground. We watched where it had gone for a moment and it suddenly came back
into view as though it had just turned around, right where it was. 'Must be a helicopter' we thought - it was still very low
and manouvreing like a helicopter.
We continued to watch it until the traffic lights turned to green
and we moved forward. It wasn't until we were about 100 yards or so closer that we realised it wasn't a helicopter. This object
was basically triangular in shape though its corner points were missing and it had various coloured lights - I distinctly
remember red, white and green along it's edges. Unlike aircraft lights which flash, these lights were pulsing slowly lighter
and darker as though 'breathing' over a two to three second period.
I know that many reports of black triangle craft describe them as
huge, football-field sized craft (for example, those described by Colm Kelleher, previously of the National Instiutute for
Discovery Science organisation [NIDS] in America), but the craft my son and I were observing would only have been about 30
feet on each side.
We watched astounded as it weaved its way around, approx 60 feet
above ground level, at a distance of about 100 yards from us. We continued to move with the traffic and my son watched as
we moved. I kept an eye on this thing in my door mirror (that's how low it was). Eventually it moved over the roof of a B&Q
hardware centre and went out of sight.
On our way back home an hour or so later, I looked over to this
centre. It was unusual in that it had large illuminated light panels in its roof and a large illuminated canopy over its gardening
section. Of all the buildings in the vicinity, this was the only structure that actively directed light upwards and so may
have 'attracted' the craft. The centre also had a tall, 20 feet wired compound area. I noticed a strobe-alarm light had been
set off inside. Additionally, I noticed there was a power pylon immediately behind the store. We last saw the craft moving
towards this pylon.
This is a sketch of how it appeared to us:
Thankyou Mr Parsons for allowing us to add your report to our sightings database.

A witness in California took this picture
around about the 22nd of October. He had forgotten about it and almost deleted it from his camera. As he was
ready to press the delete button, he noticed the luminous object in the bottom of the frame and immediately downloaded it
into the computer. The odd thing is, he can't remember taking this picture. he can remember that there was a full
moon that night in that direction south of his yard, and thinks that he remembers taking a picture, but can't
remember anything else, which is strange!
Not only does he not have any memories of that night,
it seems that there are missing photos from that time. "I have not been able to locate these missing photos in the camera
or the computer, or even in the recycle bin. The night in question seems to have been last Saturday, I have not been out since
then because of the storms we have been having".
He said "Also, this is when the full moon would have been in
that location at this time when I usually go outside. (Around 7-8 o'clock) I can remember setting up my camera that night,
and I have a faint memory of taking a picture in the direction of the moon, but after this everything is just a blank! This
is really strange. And the picture was still in the camera's memory card. I always look at my photos as soon as I come in
the house and then promptly delete them from the camera after they are in the computer. This is all so weird because I always
remember details about the pictures I take".
"Also, my seven year old daughter has had recurring dreams which
she says are "real." In these dreams she is floating down the hallway and being lifted up by these ghostly like beings with
what she describes as "worm like" eyes. She told us about these dreams on Monday, and she was not able to sleep in her own
room the following night".

Andy Wallace writes, "A colleague of mine took this rather interesting video this
morning 22nd October 2004, around 8 AM. There appears to be two white, elongated objects traveling in the sky in a downwards,
westerly direction for several minutes. We surmise most likely that the two objects were space debris, but they seem to move
in unison to each other at a constant distance from each other. My colleague claims there were actually three of them at one
point before the camera was brought out. They look similar to the space shuttle breaking apart. I hope you find something

Wolverhampton, West Midlands
North-West in a clear sky, my friend and I observed three 'star-like' point sources of light around magnitude 0 (Vega). The
lights formed a triangle in the sky and were stationary for a minute or so. Unfortunately, we had no reference and could not
estimate the distance to or between them. The triangle was then joined by four other lights of similar but variable magnitude
that initially moved in an sweeping manner around the triangle. All lights then formed a stationary circle in the sky which
then broke and lights went below visible horizon. Having seen the video footage, it would seem that our sighting was very
similar to that seen in Phoenix on September 26th!
Thank you to the witness and Brian Vike for the report.

The observer was out in his back garden looking
for shooting stars when he saw an unusual star move across the sky on September 23, 2004, at 9:23 PM. It looked like a shooting
star but lasted longer. It was not as bright as a normal shooting star and then curved around before disappearing. It traveled
in an east-northeast to west-southwest direction. It was too fast for a satellite and it was the wrong direction for aeroplanes.
Helicopters don't fly that high and usually have flashing lights.

Puxico - Missouri
On September 9, 2004, at 9 PM, the observer walked out on his back porch and noticed
a bright light in the northwest. He had seen this several times before, but didn't take the time to look closely. This time
he got his binoculars and saw the object hovering but at times it bounced to the left or right and up or down. When looking
at it through the binoculars it was triangle shaped and was blinking red, blue and white or yellow. He states, "What was really
strange was it looked like you were looking through heat waves as it shimmered and seemed to be spinning." It was very hard
to watch. It was flying over a place where there is only woods and a lake, and a place called Mingo Swamp Wildlife Refuge.
I watched for half an hour, got spooked and went inside.

Corunna - Michigan
Looking east at 10 PM, just over the field we spotted bright lights low on the
horizon on September 9, 2004, and they appeared to be heading towards us. As the lights moved closer you could make out that
the craft had three large, round, very bright (non-flashing) white lights on the underside that formed a triangle. The craft
was very silent, flying low and moving at a slow pace across the moonless sky. They state, "We went out in the backyard to
get a better look as it flew just about directly overhead and we were able to see only a slight outline of the craft due to
the lights shining so bright." We lost sight of the craft as it headed southwest in the general direction of Lansing.

Fort Smith - Arkansas
The observer's home is at the top of a hill and a few moments after dark on September
7, 2004, he heard a very soft low humming sound. At 9:15 PM, it became a low rumbling sound. He states, "As I looked in the
direction of the sound, I saw this huge craft approach very slowly, it was flying very low at about 400 feet" This ship had
a triangle shape and its lights glowed from underneath and alternated in their light pattern as it passed over me. I grabbed
my flashlight and shined it up at the thing as it flew slowly over our area. Someone else had to see this huge craft, but
it was so quiet and seemed to take forever to go over the area. I was shocked and called loudly to my Mom in the next room.
She said, "She heard the rumbling or hum that was unlike a normal engine propulsion sound." I then grabbed my flashlight and
ran off the porch to the street corner to get a better look as it left our area. This ship or whatever this was flew over
the edge of town and out of my view. We have also seen other sightings as well in our area in the last few months. This thing
was huge... my God what or who was flying this ship?

Jackson - Kentucky
At 9 PM, on September 6, 2004, a triangular object was seen with a bright white
light, plus red and blue flashing lights The white flashing light was more brilliant than the other two lights. The witness
reported that, "One of the objects seemed to be closer than the object on the right but both objects were stationary, and
not moving." They hovered in the southwestern sky for a few hours. I watched them for three hours then got bored and went
to bed. At one point, a third object joined the two and as suddenly as it appeared, took off to the west at an incredible
speed. The reason I thought the object to be triangular was because the lights did not rotate in a circle.

CORPUS CHRISTI - Texas
My daughter (age 2) and I were sitting outside
at 11:40 AM, on September 6, 2004, when she pointed out some airplanes. We have made this a game and play it daily. We live
close to Cabinis Field Airport and relatively close to NAS Corpus Christi, so we see aircraft all the time. When she said
"airplane" I instinctively looked up and initially thought they were two seagulls but as I watched, I realized there were
two metallic craft flying in formation. I stuck my head in the back door and told my husband what we were watching and he
came outside. They flew like birds constantly in tight circular patterns and formation. Their maneuvering patterns were too
difficult for an aircraft to perform. They flew below the few clouds and as they turned toward us, the reflection of the sun
hitting the objects made them seem five times larger. They were silvery white objects of triangular shape. They made no sound
as they flew over our heads. There were no vapor trails or contrails coming off the craft either.

Two large formations of light
were captured on video last night 23 Aug 2004. The formation was moving over Melbourne while the video was taken at a location
near Pascoe Vale. The objects were in two groups of three lights and each group was in a triangle formation.
The video was taken by Mark & Janine Blease
of Melbourne. PRA have a copy of the video for analysis and so does Channel 7 TV Melbourne. A check of Melbourne Air Traffic
Control, show no aircraft at that location or in formation at that time and no radar contact was reported.
This morning on the Breakfast Show - Radio station
3AW Melbourne, spoke to the couple who took the video and they said it was quite a surprise and very spectacular, offering
no explanation. Other people called the radio station and some did come onto the 'talk-back' line to support the sighting.
This is a multiple witness event and a hoax has been
At present there is no simple explanation, however
an investigation has now been opened and as more information becomes available we will post it.
This is night video so it is very low value data,
however, save the images to a file and then expand for more visual detail.

Interstate 5 - Coalinga, CA
The following is a witnesses report which was sent to NUFORC
On the night of July 12, 2004, my family and I embarked on a road
trip from the San Francisco Bay Area to New Mexico. While travelling south on Interstate-5 in the central valley of California,
at about 10:15 pm, we encountered the I-5 UFO phenomenon that has been reported to NUFORC several times since at least the
year 2000. It was a triangular aircraft flying a repetitive aerobatic pattern over the interstate and swooping down very low
over traffic, creating a hazard to all who were driving.
We saw it as we approached from 2 to 3 miles away, and were
amazed at it's agility and audacity right from the start. It occurred 28 miles north of Highway 198 at the intersection of
I-5 and the overpass of Manning Avenue. The aircraft's maneuvers were incredible, but not beyond human capability. The craft
flew a fast, distinct, unchanging pattern over the interstate and overpass, swooping down to an unbelievably low level over
the freeway traffic. We and every other vehicle around us slowed down to observe it, and once underneath it, we hoped we wouldn't
get hit. We drove past the overpass, which was remote and had no exit/entrance ramps and then parked on the shoulder about
100 yards south of it, right below the pattern that the aircraft was flying. My wife and I tried hard to get a good look,
but it was very dark; no moon and no city lights anywhere near us.
The craft seemed to be triangular, yet not an equilateral
triangle. It was shaped more like a Vulcan bomber; the wings formed a wide delta, yet their leading edge intersected the fuselage
well behind the nose. I could not make out the profile of the nose, yet I could see the profile of a vertical tail fin. The
vertical height of the fuselage seemed thin, but not too thin for a human pilot. It's lights were completely unconventional;
no strobe, no red and green position lights, no navigation light. It just had 3 big bright circular halogen white lights,
about 12"-18" in diameter; one under the nose, and one at each wingtip. The nose light would turn off and then turn back on.
They all shined down and forward about 45 degrees, and were built into the body; they weren't fixtures hanging down. They
put out an ambient glow onto the fuselage, which was a very pale tan or grey. There were no other markings and no landing
gear visible. Unlike previous reports of this phenomenon to NUFORC, which described a silent craft, (and I don't discount
them), this craft made a lot of noise. In fact, it sounded like it had a single jet engine. As it approached, it made a whining,
hissing sound, which turned into a roar as it passed, yet not as loud or fast as a corporate or fighter jet. The craft maintained
a speed of about 80 to 100 mph throughout it's maneuvers. A high-performance engine might explain how it made steep climbs
and 90 degree banking turns without stalling or losing speed.
It flew a repetitive kidney-bean shaped pattern above
the freeway intersection with the overpass. It dived down and flew 15'-20' above the I-5 traffic, climbed up, hung a U-turn,
then dove down to the field on the east side of the interstate, and flew an amazing 2-3 feet above the ground for about 100
yards until it approached the embankment of the overpass, then pulled up and climbed at about 45 degrees without slowing down
to about 200 feet above ground, hung a sharp U-turn banking at 90 degrees to the ground,then dove down again at the interstate,
and repeated this pattern over and over. Whether the pilot was an off-hours yahoo cropduster or an alien, he was out of his
mind. While parked on the shoulder, we watched the aircraft fly the pattern right over us several times before driving off
(my 6 year-old daughter was getting scared).
I wish I could provide a more definitive identification of the aircraft,
but it was very dark that night and the craft was constantly making sharp moves: banking, climbing, and diving. My best guess
is that this was a powerful, unconventional, yet terrestrial airplane, but the pilot was performing maneuvers that weren't
just bold, but crazy and malicious toward the traffic on I-5. Everything about the aircraft's actions and lighting was illegal.
called the California Highway Patrol after driving away, and the dispatcher shrugged it off, saying, "I'll put out a bulletin,
but there's not much we can do. You might want to try the FAA." I'll forward this report to the FAA in the hopes that they
might look into it, being that this incident constitutes crimes being committed with an aircraft. Either this is some rogue
cropduster that hasn't been caught yet, or this area along I-5 is definitely a UFO hotspot.

graphic of the flight path of the object above Interstate 5 is provided by the witness. It is posted to the NUFORC website.

Two friends report an unusual event while out camping. As they sat around the campfire, one of the campers
got up to walk towards the tree line when he noticed two orange orbs of a pumpkin like shape skimming slowly over the trees
at around 5 MPH. The orbs were parallel to one another. Suddenly one flew in an eastern direction while the other object stayed
in a hovering position. Moments later the other orb came back to its original position, hovering beside the other again. It
was reported that they then began to move towards the campers area as the color changed to red with one of the orbs positioning
itself directly over their campfire.
The witnesses report that the red orb appeared
to rotate and became at least four times the size of the van they came in. It then changed its appearance to a large rectangular
shape with what appeared to be portholes with red, yellow, blue and green lights of a "firelike" nature. At one point there
was heard a turbo like sound that lasted less than one second. The lights retreated but were watched through the trees for
the next two hours.

NUFORC has received a number of reports from the Phoenix area of a peculiar cluster
of lights that were seen there on the evenings of June 14 and 15, 2004.
One of the witnesses to the event is a photography professional, and he
provided this photo from the video footage he captured of the event at approximately 20:40 hrs. (Pacific) on Monday, June
14, looking to the southwest over Phoenix:
While putting the kids to bed, my wife pointed out very bright and unusual lights
in formation to the sothwest. We live on a mountainside and had a good view of thses lights for 5 minutes, 2.5 of which I
have on video tape. These lights were almost stationary and in formation this did not change. Brightness of each was Venus
maggnitude or brighter. Lights seemed to flash in a pattern. While my eyes said they were red and white, video shows green
yellow and orange as well. As the lights went from sight, a movement to NE seemed to take place. I am an experienced sky watcher
and this was not an ordinary occurance. Size was a minimm of 600 ft and at the most 3000=4000 by my estimates.

Thursday, May 27th, 2004 at approximately 8:30pm,
I was just pulling out of my driveway in Venice, CA, to go to the store. When I made a right turn to go down the street, I
noticed a huge cluster of what appeared to be black balloons. I thought, "There must be a festival going on." And then I thought,
"A festival? At 8:30pm on a Thursday? Surely I would've known about it."
And then I noticed this cluster was animated. These
individual black spheres comprising the cluster were moving like a cartoon. They were leapfrogging, swirling around each other,
separating and coming back together, and possibly moving over the area at around 50mph. This is only a guess, as
air was clear and I couldn't gauge the cluster's distance from me. What is small and close? What is huge and far away? I couldn't
I stopped the car, hit reverse, pulled back into
my driveway, got out and watch the black cluster move eastward for about 5 minutes until it was out of site. I had time to
run inside, grab a video camera, and tape only a few moments of this thing. Unfortunately, the object was too distant to distinguish
on video. However, this proves one thing. This thing moved from Venice Beach to Over Century City in about 5 minutes, on an
evening with no breeze - it wasn't a bunch of balloons, that's for sure.

A high alert was sounded along the Indo-Pak border in Punjab
in the wake of landing of an "unidentified flying object" in Pakistan's territory, BSF Senior Commandant Darbara Singh said
in Amritsar on Sunday.The incident occurred on Thursday evening when some flying object, which took off from the Indian side,
landed in Pakistan's territory hardly 300 yards away from the zero line, he said.The area was identified on the Indian side
as BSF Post Fatehpur falling in village Chann Kalan, he said.
Singh said "as per the eyewitness account of BSF constable
Jagdish Parishad, who on Thursday evening was keeping vigil on the International Border, had seen some flying object like
a hot balloon carrying three persons, who disembarked after landing in Pakistan's territory".Singh said "now it has become
difficult to ascertain the reality that the flying object landed in Pakistan territory after crossing the Indian Territory.
As the BSF Constable is not educated enough to identify the object."Since the constable has never seen any para glider, fan
gliders and even a hot balloon during his service tenure so it is difficult to ascertain the authenticity of the matter",
he said."In this regard the BSF have already handed over the protest note to the Pakistan Authority for providing necessary
information of landing object which has reportedly took off from the Indian side with three persons," Singh said.

Wolf Creek, Oregon
On Wednesday, January 21, 2004, at 6:45 p.m., Niki Leighton and her son were driving on a mountain road near Wolf Creek,
Oregon when they spotted a UFO.
"It was hovering at about 750 feet when we came around the corner," Niki reported,
"My son and I were on our way to the fire station for the Wednesday night drill when we saw a very bright ball of light hovering
just over the mountaintop (i.e. London Peak, just west of Wolf Creek, Ore.--J.T.) And then it went straight up. It was like
a very bright ball of light and big. Don't know if there was press coverage. We live in the woods and do not get the paper
or TV reception."

An employee of this major municipality during his routine
work as a traffic engineer took a photograph of a level railway crossing at Beveridge north of Melbourne using a digital camera.
When it was downloaded from the
camera on to a computer an object appeared in the sky on photograph.
This Council has no opinion about the object. We just do not know what the object could be and would welcome any explanation.
This Council believes it has an obligation to pass the image on to the relevant authorities for their consideration and investigation. The image has been referred by Council to the Chief Defence Scientist,
Defence Science & Technology Organisation, and the Civil Aviation Authority. Council is considering
referring it to NASA and other authorities.

ALMELO, Overijssel -- A 47-year old witness was walking a
dog outside on Sunday, January 11, 2004, around 8:15 PM, when he saw a huge massive triangle-shaped object. At the moment
of the sighting the sky was very clear and the stars were very clearly visible. The huge triangle with red lights on each
of the three corners. The witness states, "In the middle of the object there were five lights in a small triangle, there were
three indigo blue-coloured lights in the middle, and two red lights on each side. The wind blew suddenly very hard from another
direction possibly caused by the craft. There were no engine sounds.
The craft moved slowly from the east to the west with two bright
white sphere lights on top." The object was very big, much bigger than a jet and was 250 meters distant and a height of also
250 meters. It was moving slowly at a constant speed of 30 km/h as it passed overhead the witness. When the object had passed
the witness, he noticed that above the object it had a hilly shape and on top of that 2 sphere-shaped bright lights. The sighting
caused some psychological side effects: "I came home nervously and stayed in that condition for a couple of hours. I had a
strange, restless feeling. During the sighting I was for a moment frightened, a kind of panic almost," He also reported the
sighting to the Air Force Base Twente, but they said they don't do anything with the report. However, even though it was Sunday,
a half hour later he could hear fighter jets fly over!

GUILFORD – On January 6, 2004, at about 8:40 PM, the
eye- witness was told to look outside by his little sister who was observing something in the air. She went to the door and
saw something rising straight up in the shape of a flying triangle with 400 lights. The witness states, “After a few
minutes, it stopped and the blinking lights were not visible and it flew right over my house.” The lights were on the
bottom of the UFO, so I believe the UFO was rising with the nose in the air. We watched it until it headed northwest and out
of sight. My dogs were freaking out the whole time the UFO was near. The UFO rose straight up in the air, nose up, then stopped,
straightened so the nose was pointing at us and then flew away.
Peter Davenport the Director of NUFORC spoke with
this witness, and she sounded quite sincere and credible.

The object appeared almost the size of the full
moon as it flew over on January 4, 2004, at 2:30 PM. The witnesses had a very clear and razor sharp view of a very thin disk.
The "bottom" surface appeared shaded, and upper surface was highly reflective and showed a wide low bulge nearly filling the
diameter. It was definitely a disk, and definitely nearly flat on it's "upper" and "lower" surfaces. It behaved like a balloon,
drifting and turning, climbing and dipping, bobbing weightlessly, in a more or less easterly direction. It did not appear
to be under "control" or "doing" anything. It was big and definitely "hardware," and not a cloud. Nearby airfields are: Paige
Field, and SW Florida International Airport. This occurred in or near the landing path for some of the air traffic. The disk
had a bulge on one face, and was 30 feet across, that reflected sunlight and bobbed around at 3-5000 feet.

Two witnesses observed on January 4, 2004,
12:30 AM, on the Main North Road near Parafield Airport four dull glowing orange lights hovering over the area. Mark age 23,
and his wife Elizabeth stopped the car and got out for a better look. At first the objects were hovering in the shape of the
Southern Cross. After manoeuvring backwards and forwards for a while they formed a line, one after the other. During this
time they flashed a little and moved off into the distance. One faded out and then they all faded. This is interesting because
Adelaide does have a curfew on take-offs and landings (11.00pm at night). Conclusion: Garbage bags or balloons cannot go back
