Filer's Files #31 -- 2001, MUFON Skywatch Investigations
George A. Filer, Director, Mutual UFO Network Eastern
July 29, 2001, Sponsored by Electronic Arts,
Webmaster Chuck Warren,

UFOs are reported in New York, New Jersey, New York, Delaware,
Florida, Puerto Rico, Canada, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Germany.


All around our world there are numerous ancient disc shaped
burial barrows, tumuli, or mounds that were built to bury our
ancestors. When I flew for the Air Force, I noticed many mounds
from the air in many parts of the world. Ohio, West Virginia,
Illinois, Florida, the Middle East, and the area around
Stonehenge in England have many examples that still exist.
Thousands were built in America, and 18,000 were built in
Britain 5000 years ago during the Bronze Age. Both in Great
Britain and America thousands of flint discs have been found
inside the American Indian and British burial mounds.

Recent evidence has also uncovered an ancient alphabet that
appears to have been used throughout the ancient world. The
burial barrows are constructed to a precise plan, where the
periphery of a circle is marked by posts and stakes and is
called a palisade. Now, 5000 years later, the barrows still
maintain their basic structure unless destroyed by grave
robbers or modern construction projects. Within this palisade
the dead were buried and a discoid shaped structure was built
that looks remarkably like present day UFOs. Not only was a
disc shape used in construction but also, each dead body was
buried with its own carved disc. Sometimes these small discs
came from a hundred miles away and were often carved or chipped
from flint stone. Archaeologists claim these disc barrow
builders were worshipers of the sun and moon. I asked
investigator John Thompson his opinion. He stated, our
ancestors saw "things" in the sky and intuitively, but probably
incorrectly and as modern m! an is doing, decided that Gods
from space were/are visiting us. They, however and more
astutely than us, made the death-heaven connection. Why bury
models of UFOs with themselves if they didn't think that these
entities "aboard them" were not connected to the so-called
spirit-world they were entering? Its obvious they saw linkage
between what they observed in the sky and where they believe
they were going after dying.

The archeologists maintain that the discs represented sun or
moon worship. Drawings and carvings have been made of the sun
and moon for ages, the sun is usually represented as a circle
with lines or rays and the moon is generally crescent shaped.
So we can hypothesize that our ancestors, like Ezekiel who saw
a UFO in the sky, probably worshipped or at least prayed these
craft would take them to heaven or at least keep their souls
alive. Discs are clearly depicted in the 2,500 year old palace
of Darius at Perseopolis in Iran. I think we can assume the
depiction's of disc craft with triple landing gear are accurate
and it makes good sense to assume they were in our skies in
ancient times.

These UFO discs have been depicted in 18,000 years old ancient
caves in France. The Egyptians believed a metal craft with a
metal door carried the souls of the dead who had led a good
life. Many of the objects found in the barrows carry out the
disc theme and its importance to the people. Clothing and capes
were fastened over the upper chest with a disc measuring two
inches in diameter. Jewelry, early armor and even the chief
structures of worship carried out the disc theme. Stonehenge
itself covered by wood would make a nicely shaped disc. Ancient
sites such as New Grange in Ireland, believed to be the world's
oldest structure is shaped as a disc. It is similar in
appearance to the Mound of Kinowth and both have the disc shape
with a rim and representations of windows that faithfully
imitate the real object. If the ancients intended to imitate
either the moon or the sun their structures would look very
different. Almost everywhere in the world myths, customs, and
rel! igion claim their individual ancestors came from space. I
suggest the history or the world is very different if we
recognize the importance of disc UFOs.


ROME -- Monsignor Corrado Balducci, an insider close to the
Pope has gone on national Italian television five times in
recent months to proclaim: Extraterrestrial contact is a real
phenomenon. The prelate announced that the Vatican is receiving
much information about extraterrestrials and their contacts
with humans from its Nuncios (embassies) in various countries,
such as Mexico, Chile and Venezuela. Monsignor Balducci said
that he is on a Vatican commission looking into
extraterrestrial encounters, and how to cope with the emerging
general realization of extraterrestrial contact. Balducci
provided the Roman Catholic Church's analysis of
extraterrestrials, emphasizing that these encounters "are NOT
demonic, they are NOT due to psychological impairment, they are
NOT a case of entity attachment, but these encounters deserve
to be studied carefully." Since Monsignor Balducci is a Vatican
expert exorcist, and since the Catholic Church has historically
demonized many new pheno! mena that were poorly understood, his
proclaiming the Vatican's non-censure of these encounters is
all the more remarkable. Balducci revealed he is closely
following this phenomenon. Thanks to World Gathering for Truth


WOODMERE NASSAU COUNTY -- Two licensed professionals observed a
rectangular UFO on South Shore of Long Island for 6 to 10
minutes on July 25, 2001, The object was about 250 feet away at
treetop level at 11:54 PM. The object had green lights and was
over 300 feet in length. The object was first sighted in the
west and flew off to the east. The elevation varied but the
craft flew straight east. Thanks to WUFOD-I..1-368-at


TRENTON -- The Trentonian News reports that several friends
videotaped a mystery light in sky on July 22, the day before
Monday's meteor sighting. On Sunday, P. J. Rosso, 11, and his
friend, Alex Stemm, 12, were lounging on the trampoline in
Lambertville. At about 8:30 PM, they noticed a very bright,
slow moving light in the sky. He went inside and got his
camcorder, and started filming and as twilight gave way to
darkness, the light was even more pronounced in the sky, much
brighter than anything else and then -- nothing. "Dude, it
disappeared!" Rosso could be heard yelling on the videotape at
exactly 9:13 p.m. as the light exploded like a Roman candle. A
second later, the light was gone. James Rosso said. "it looked
like debris was coming off it. Stemm went on record. "I guess
it was an UFO," he said. Both said the image of a bright light
disappearing from the sky was similar to that observed in
Carteret last Sunday, when nearly 100 people, including police
officer! s and one priest, witnessed a series of bright lights
blipping out of view. Thanks to the Trentonian News by Jeff
Edelstein July 25, and Gerry Farshores.--

CARTERET -- Peter Davenport writes, "On Sunday, July 15, 2001,
the UFO incident may have lasted for 35 to 40 minutes, from
0010 to 0050 hours." The lights may have been visible from as
far away as 10 to 40 miles. The lights reportedly were preceded
by an immense flash that illuminated the NJ turnpike, and which
reportedly occurred simultaneously to the appearance of a
triangular shaped craft over Sayreville, NJ. The event was not
related to 1) meteor activity, 2) reentering space debris, or
3) any kind of known aircraft. Reports of sightings of strange
craft were reported from as far away as Ontario, Canada, and
Virginia just minutes before the event. Witnesses reported
seeing multiple lights in triangular formations, and one
disc-shaped object was reported from the south shore of Long
Island, NY. The possibility that the event was caused by flares
has not been ruled out, but that possibility raises a whole
host of other questions. If they were some type of flare, who
wa! s able to launch them undetected, and how did those
individuals succeed in getting them all in the air at the same
time? How did they ignite them all at once? Why was an official
investigation not initiated? Why was some kind of residue not
seen falling from the sky? Wouldn't this be a severe fire
hazard, if, in fact, people are launching flares over populated
areas, airports, refineries, and fuel storage tanks? --Several
seemingly identical events have been reported to NUFORC over
the last 18 months. They were reported from Rockford on
February 11, & 16, March 10, 2000; January 11, 2001; February
10, and March 18, 2001. The objects have been seen over
Prescott, AZ, on multiple occasions, as well. Please see
entries on the NUFORC website. Thanks to Peter Davenport

Colm Kelleher writes, some of NIDS witnesses are also coming
out against flares (EW 6,7,8 and 9 we specifically asked them
the question and they came out against flares). Note the ABC
commentary that you quoted in Filer's Files"overinterpreted" my
statement that "one hypothesis we are following" is military
flares. There are, of course, several others. Thanks to Colm
Kelleher , NIDS.


SMYRNA -- On July 23, 2001, the witness who is a pilot observed
an egg shaped UFO with a white trail moving very fast. The
front of the egg was blue and it was moving up Route 13 in
Northern Delaware headed towards New Jersey. The fast moving
egg shaped UFO was blue in front and the trail was white. The
witness stated, "I am a pilot, and it was no plane." The color
was a white bluish. The weather was sunny about 86 degrees with
blue sky and some clouds. I lost it behind a cloud.


ROSWELL -- Tom Sheets director of GA MUFON reports that
investigation of the June 17, 2001, case has indicated it was
most likely a meteor. This same evening in Lawrenceville
Georgia, Jim Clifford, MUFONGA's Deputy Director for
Investigation, and his wife, were outside and reported a large
green meteor that passed over. Both Jim and Mrs. Clifford
immediately recognized it as a meteor.

LA GRANGE -- Investigator John Thompson writes, "I see UFOs,
they see UFOs." That is what an abductee told me once. You
dabble with the dark forces and you'll get whatever you think
you should get. I have been working on what I now call a "dark
saucer" case. It was one of my first close-encounter cases with
multiple witnesses. Only now, nearly six years later, have I
learned the full demonic aspects of the case. They summoned the
dead and got much, much more! One lady was pulled out of bed by
an entity that "was not human." The dead appeared. A flying
saucer, hovering only 20 feet above a pasture, appeared for a
whole neighborhood to watch. After many seances, luminous white
Ping-Pong size balls appeared. The flying saucer had portholes
and shot pulse-like rays to the ground as families watched.
There were reports of dark molten slag like material found
following the sighting (unverified still despite two
independent reports). Deaths and ill-health following the sigh!
tings of balls, UFO and entities. As one witness told me
everybody connected with the events has suffered since. Many,
true UFOs in my estimation are manifestations. According to
some, UFOs can be called up. This is no different from holding
seances and trying to talk to the dead. Its all connected and
anybody hoping to see a UFO should be careful as they have a
good chance of getting more than they bargained for. Thanks to
John Thompson former MUFON State Director.


GREEN SWAMP -- On July 13, 2001, two witnesses were driving
home on State Road 474 west of Orlando at 9:30 P.M. when they
noticed a pin ball like object. While driving Witness #1 and
his son (13 year old) saw a, 30 to 40 inch diameter ball in
rear window of his automobile. It was reflecting back the
details of the rear lights of the car. It was shimmering as
they drove and they both had the feeling that they were being
watched. He drove faster thinking that "Something was coming on
us." As he looked at the rear view mirror the reflection was as
a convex chromium surfaced object (pin ball) and he said he had
difficulty focusing on it. He thought the object to be 3 to 4
feet behind his car. He said that there was something blocking
the night sky as he looked up. When they reached the end of the
road they noted that there was an increase of light without any
visible shadows. Both witnesses were frightened. When they
examined the car upon arriving at home, there was noth! ing on
the car or back window, no oily residue. Investigator's note:
The witnesses wanted this information to be recorded. Witness
#1 needed to talk to someone about this event. He has had
another sighting three years ago and could not share it with
anyone. He just recently became aware of MUFON and their hot
line number here in the Tampa Bay area. They do not want to
have an investigation done at this time. Thanks to Lorraine
Gerber. Reported to Tampa Bay MUFON Hot line at(727)595-7964


PENNSYLVANIA -- The Earth is hit by 400 tons of space debris
each day. Thousands of people witnessed a fireball move from
east to west over the East Coast. "It was most likely the size
of size of a basketball, that created an air blast," said Don
Yeomans who oversees NASA's Near Earth Object Program. They put
on quite a display by forming a giant fireball trail before
exploding. "This sort of thing's not unusual, but it seldom
happens over a densely inhabited area." Many residents near
Williamsport, PA heard loud explosions at 6:19 PM, while
windows were shattered in Salladasburg, PA. DOD satellites with
IR sensors detected the impact of a bolide over the Eastern US
on July 23, 2001, at 22:19:11 UTC. The object was first
detected at an altitude of 82 km at 41.5 North Latitude, 75.6
West Longitude, and tracked down to an altitude of 32 km at
41.3 North, 77.3 West. The impact was simultaneously detected
by space based visible wavelength sensors operated by the US
Departm! ent of Energy. The total radiated energy was
approximately 1.27 X 10^12 joules. Some who caught the
spectacle imagined it the size of a house or a car. The object
emitted a rainbow of colors.

PUERTO RICO -- Luz Guzman reports that on July 23, 2001, a fast
moving airborne object probably a fireball was observed at 7:30
PM, and three minutes later the object exploded. José Muñoz
Vázquez, an archaeologist observed a static white light grew in
size as it descended over Cabo Rojo. The tail oscillated
considerably, with sparks, an explosion, more sparks and a
golden white light. No sounds were heard and no smoke was seen.
The fireball was like the tail of a very small comet. The
explosion was like golden fireworks. Thanks to Institute of
Hispanic Ufology. Special thanks to Lucy Guzman,

TROUT LAKE -- John Novak reports that on July 19, 2001, around
11:00 PM, a large ship flew over the Gilliland Ranch expanding
into a brilliant yellow-orange light, then dimmed out as it
left the area. This object and large lights were filmed over
Mt. Adams. Several other high flyers displayed incredible
speeds and turns, some making complete U turns. On July 22nd a
guest was taking off Trout Lake airport in his small plane at
12:30 PM, when a UFO flew directly under his plane. The pilot
was in radio contact with witnesses and circled to try to see
the UFO, but it stayed directly underneath him. The same pilot
saw a UFO the previous night over Mt. Adams. It lit up, sent
down a beam, then dropped down into the same beam and took off.
July 23rd a massive triangular ship came in from the north and
was met by a golden colored smaller ship. The film shows three
distinct lights in an elongated triangle that moved in unison,
keeping their exact distance. Tom Dongo, a well-know! n UFO
investigator, spent two weeks at the ranch and will return to
Sedona MUFON with some incredible footage. Thanks to John Novak


REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN -- Bridget reports that four UFOs were
sighted on Monday. July 22, 2001, at 12:30 AM. Four objects
were seen heading south from the Regina area. They were
triangular with an orange haze discharging from the base. They
approached traveling approximately 55 K.P.H (30 MPH) prior to
stopping. They paused and hovered for several seconds and
departed out of sight moving toward the south southwest in less
than a second. Thanks to Bridget,


Troy Allen called on July 30, 2001, to report he is monitoring
the Popocatpétl Volcano video camera site near Mexico City on
an almost daily basis. The volcano's observation camera is
showing many UFOs often in a triangle formation. Over seventy
images of the UFOs have been seen in recent weeks. Three dark
UFOs can be seen flying around the area often in a triangle
shape. UFO s have had an interest in the volcano since the
December 21, 1994, eruption, ending decades of slumber. It is
recommended not to approach the volcano to less than 12 km from
the crater, although the way between Santiago Xalitzintla and
San Pedro Nexapa, including Paso de Cortés, is open for
controlled circulation. RI MUFON's Janet Bucci indicates she
saw UFOs at the site on July 3, 2001. Small elliptical colored
light that changes color (green, blue, pink, purple, yellow)
that is more or less stationary and a larger roundish or
flattened whitish light that moves from snapshot to snapshot.
There a! re often at least three UFOs in the photos at: and Thanks to Troy Allen


NORTH GRANADA -- Augusto Cermeño reporter from the El Nuevo
Diario claims that UFOs are flying almost nightly over the El
Domingazo neighborhood, according to the accounts provided by
at least a dozen local residents. One day we were approached by
our friend Sebastián Arista Guadamuz, 38, who told us he, his
wife and many other locals have seen flying saucers around 7:00
PM almost every night over a distillery. A round object flying
over the neighborhood flew to the east. The Aristas' even say
that their daughter saw the strange, saucer-shaped craft which
crossed the sky, leaving two fiery tails in its wake. Rosa
Isabel Trejos Nuñez, 28, saw "something like a fireball with a
fiery tail" on Wednesday night. "We also saw it pass in early
December." She was calm and relaxed, stating that there is no
fear whatsoever as a result of this nocturnal vision. Alvaro
Luisa says he and his sister saw "how something round broke off
from the object and dropped downward on Wednesday nig! ht, on
the south side. It flew downward as though about to land. As it
went down, the light became brighter, as thought it was looking
for a runway." The saucer was green in color, but as it went
downward, an immense yellow light turned on." (snip.) Thanks to
Institute of Hispanic Ufology. Translation (C) 2001. Special

AMAZON RAIN FOREST - Robert writes, "I've only recently learned
about you - I'm not informed on the issues of UFO research. I'm
just an average guy with a good career, marriage, family and
mortgage. But when I read a statement you made about the damage
that criticism and ridicule you've been subjected to, I felt a
tinge of cowardice for not talking about my own experiences to
my friends and family." I don't understand what these objects
are but I know they're real and I suspect that many reports are
genuine. In 1962, in the Amazon rain forest, we witnessed a
most remarkable event at close proximity and I'm still puzzled
as to what I was seeing. I've questioned my own grasp of
reality over this at times and certainly would not 'go public'
with what we saw. I saw something unusual that could be
acknowledged, but discussing the facts surrounding this
encounter would immediately render me a target of ridicule or
brand me an imaginative liar. I'm now 53 and have decided that!
there is at this time another history being written -- one that
will never include us as willing and knowing players. Either
people like you and thousands of others are just plain nuts or
there now exists the greatest secret of all, one we may never
learn. Perhaps we're not supposed to learn for a good reason.
Thanks to Robert - (rbcs)


ASCHERSLEBEN -- On July 23, 2001, the witness was working at
his computer when his friend told him over Internet to look at
the sky. The witness asked his mother to look as well and they
both saw a glowing light that was not far away. The witness
reports he saw an orange light moving very fast from left to
right. By this time, six of us saw these objects. I called my
friend and we met late in the night to watch out for more
objects and saw more orange lights moving on the sky and then
flying away with very high speed.


ISTANBUL -- UFO enthusiasts around the globe should be aware of
the first International UFO Museum of EASTERN -EUROPE, BALKANS
AND MIDDLE EAST is going to be opened in Istanbul in October
2001. The MUSEUM is located at the center of the 10 million
populated city of Istanbul, which connects Asia, and Europe
together. The aim of this project is to inform not only the
Turkish citizens but also millions of tourists about the UFO
phenomenon. The International UFO Museum includes the UFO
Chronicle of the world, the worldwide sighting map, information
about archaeological ruins and traces, tablets, ancient
cultures and their connections to E.T's. There will be an
extensive library, video, and meeting rooms. The museum is also
looking for donations of data and funds. By taking your stance
as a citizen of this Planet and by standing together the whole
Truth will be known! Thanks to Haktan Akdogan -


Mitch Battros writes, It appears our older neighbor, Mars,
shows climate cycles just as our own. This makes for an odd
deduction. Either one would have to agree there was industrial
producing life on Mars, or, human and other fossil fuel
pollutants play a much smaller role in climate change than do
most of what our environmentalist claim. Heck, either way is
one exciting notion to consider. I like the active Martian life
theory myself. Remember, Dr. Tom Van Flandren Naval Observatory
Astronomer, said from the evidence he has put together over the
many years, he believes Mars was a type of Disneyland for our
ancestors. I love this idea, and I do not dismiss it. I have
interviewed Tom many times and believe him to be the real
thing, both academically and personally. NASA will likely stick
with the recent proof of Mars Climate cycles is due to the Sun.
Yes, it appears we have more proof of what we are experiencing
here on Earth, what is known as "Global Warming," is most! ly
related to solar cycles. Equation: Sunspots = Solar Flares =
Magnetic Shift = Shifting Ocean and Jet Stream Currents =
Extreme Weather. John Mustard a geologist at Brown University
claims "New images from NASA's Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft
show the terrain is breaking down, indicating climate change
and perhaps modern Martian ice ages." This is great news for
those of us who have believed Mars was (is) a living planet. Is
it possible life on Earth was seeded by Mars? Was there
intelligent life on Mars, which could be our ancestors? Thanks
to Mitch Battros Producer - Earth Changes TV

CYDONIA -- Steve Wingate on his website Anomalous Images, has
discovered an interesting grouping of bright rectangular
"cells" on the Martian surface. Wingate's formation appears to
be either some sort of ruined infrastructure or a result of
surface fracturing, perhaps due to faulting. The lines almost
appear as drawings and similar to the Nazca lines in Peru.
Small blisters or domes that suggest cultural structures are
also present along with grid complexes. They're morphologically
distinct and unlikely to be caused by the same mechanism that
produced the "cells." It's entirely possible that the cells are
the result of natural forces. John Fleming's book is, "The War
of All Against All." Thanks to Steve Wingate.

Editor's Note: Often strange structures, domes, pyramids, are
found on Mars. Individually, most can be explained away,
collectively they point to an ancient civilization once existed
or has gone underground. Hundreds of meteors probably strike
Mars daily just as they do on earth. We are lucky to have our
atmosphere to protect us, while Mars is virtually unprotected.
Under these conditions life on Mars likely went underground and
attempted to reach its closest neighbor. I have been looking
both at images of Mars and on Earth for evidence of this
hypothesis. Throughout, the Earth and Mars there are strange
barrows, burial grounds, or monuments to the dead. Our lives
are rather short and most wish to be remembered or to live on.
Cemeteries and burial grounds give us a clue to the past.


The United States Air Force is exploring the development of a
'space-bomber' which could destroy targets any where in the
world within half an hour. A sub-orbital bomber would be
important for conducting bombing missions any where in the
world and technically it would not go into orbit, so it would
not be a space craft. The reusable spacecraft called the X-33
Venture Star, under development by NASA and Lockheed Martin
with some changes would probably be the basis for the design.
The Space bomber would provide a major advance over the B-2.
American embassies around the world have been instructed to
tell host governments that the US intends to test not just
land-based missile interceptors, but 'other technologies and
basing modes' for such weapons. When announcements occur about
advanced weapons systems, you can assume with some accuracy
that an experimental aircraft is already flying. The Bush
administration is going all out for more modern weapons.
