THE ARIETID METEOR SHOWER PEAKS this week on Thursday, June
7th. The Arietids are unusual because they are daytime meteors
-- most of them streak through the sky unnoticed while the
bright Sun is overhead. Nevertheless, early risers on Thursday
could spot some beautiful "Earth grazing" Arietids during the
dark hours before dawn. Later in the day, after the Sun rises,
you can listen to the shower by tuning in to NASA's online
meteor radar. Thanks to Space Weather at


CAPE CANAVERAL -- NASA’s Clark McClelland writes, “In 1991
(probably September), I had ended a third shift assignment at
my LCC (Launch Control Center) top secret office and was making
my way to the fourth floor elevator. Two NASA Astronauts (I
will not mention their names at this time) were also waiting.
We said hello again, because they had been in my Control Room
during my monitoring of a Space Shuttle mission in progress. I
think it was the important STS-48 UARS flight. If I remember
correctly Astronaut Brown was in orbit. As we talked on our
way down, one of them told me to look behind the shuttle, as it
would be passing over Central Florida that early morning. He
said, “I would see the next Space Shuttle miles behind the
present Space Shuttle in orbit.” We said goodbye and I went
home but stayed up to watch for the "NEW" craft. Soon, the
Space Shuttle came over in a clear night sky and soon
thereafter I observed the "NEW" craft apparently in orbit and
trailing th! e official Shuttle mission. As it came overhead,
it abruptly steered off to the left of my sight and shortly and
completely disappeared. I was surprised with this event. A
few weeks later, the very same Astronaut was at the control
room again and gave me a foxy smile as if to say,” I told you
Clark.” I cannot say if the trailing object was or was not an
alien craft. I'm almost certain the astronaut I mentioned
would not disclose an object and this event if it were anything
other than an advanced technological development by the USA.
The astronauts are very controlled by military secrecy oaths.
Later my investigation indicated that it was either the craft
called the Aurora or the X-43A. Thanks to Clark McClelland,

William E Ristau writes, "On the night of May 15,20 01, I was
"practicing" satellite observation in preparation for joining
the P.R.O.V.E. group. I had missed the first two satellites on
my Heavens Above schedule, but was keeping my eyes open, with
the help of a good pair of binoculars, for anything moving in
the clear sky. Suddenly, from the southwest appeared to be an
"unscheduled" satellite that was high and bright. I followed
it with my binoculars as it approached the zenith. I must have
blinked, because I did not see it's 90 degree left turn to the
northwest. I continued to follow with my binoculars when I
spotted another "craft" headed northwest, as if it were trying
to catch up with the first. It advanced, until it and the
first "craft" were both in my binoculars field of view. Then,
from a direction opposite of the first two "craft,” came
another; somewhat dimmer and smaller light traveling very fast.
I followed it to the southeast until it disappeared. I retu!
rned to locate the two original "craft” in only ten seconds but
they had disappeared! With chills up my spine, I prepared to
watch for the next scheduled satellite, due overhead at 21:45
EDT. It showed up on time, with no company. A night I won't
forget. Thanks to Jeff Challender and Bill Ristau,


WESTHAMPTON BEACH -- An apparent formation of 5 to 6 lights
were observed traveling southwest to northeast though a
breaking cloud cover on May 19, 2001, at 10:30 PM  The lights
may have been part of one oval unit. Within ten seconds the
same formation of lights reversed direction and were seen
traveling from northeast to southwest. They were now higher in
sky traveling east of the first sighting.

NEW ALBANY -- The witness reports he has been seeing almost
every night a bright moving object similar to an arc welders
blue light that doesn’t twinkle when it shows up in the warm
months. On May 22, 2001, the lights appeared four times in a
single night. It appears as a satellite at times and
disappears. The object also appeared at about 15 degrees
directly south of its zenith at 9:34 PM on May 18, 2001. The
object moved directly north very slowly after turning a very
dim orange in color. This object was very bright about three
times the size of the planet Jupiter at it's brightest. After
about 10 to 15 seconds of glowing it dims very rapidly to a dim
orange color and starts moving off very slowly, but faster than
when it was brightly lit up. Thanks to Peter Davenport
Director NUFORC


SURF CITY - A video was taken on Sunday June 3, 2001, of a
strange looking aircraft flying over the Atlantic Ocean at
about 4:00 PM. A brilliant light was first observed in the sky
at 45 degrees above the horizon. The flash of light was most
likely caused by a reflection of the sun on a flying object,
but it caught my attention. Within seconds the brightly lit
disc like object disappeared. A short time later, moving at
high speed and faster than normal air traffic was a white
aircraft-traveling north paralleling the New Jersey Coastline.
There were no contrails. I had been filming beach scenes with
a TRV330 Sony video camera, so I attempted to film the craft.
A short segment of video was taken revealing an aircraft that
looked similar to a C-5 Galaxy aircraft with possibly a small
refueling boom hanging down underneath. The amazing thing
about the craft was that it appeared to have a very large
rear-slanting tower on the top of its fuselage. The tower
appears to be ab! out 100 feet tall based on the height of a C-5
tail (65 feet.) It is possible the aircraft is in a turn and
the tower is actually part of the wings, although the craft
appeared to continue to fly in straight and level flight.
Generally four large C-5 jet engines are also easily observed
hanging from the wings. These and a horizontal stabilizer are
not visible in the video. The photo can be seen at

NEWARK -- On April 11, 2001, I was in my backyard on a
beautiful night, when I decided to look up noticed a bright red
object very high in the sky. At first it started moving very
slow towards my direction but stopped right above as though it
were looking at me. It then started making left turns and
right turns at forty-five degree angles. One time it stopped
directly above my head as though it were studying me. This all
took place within an hour and a half, and then it took off so
fast that my eyes couldn’t keep up with its speed. It had
bright red and made a humming sound, I couldn’t tell if it was
made of metallic or any other kind of material. I knew it
wasn’t an aircraft just by the way it looked. The witness
indicated the sighting stunned him. Thanks to MUFON


NEW BERN -- Laura called telling me she had awakened at 4:00
AM, and looked out her window from her bed early in the morning
hours of May 22, 2001. As she looked she noticed a flying
object darting around the sky. It would move quickly from the
left to the right, then quickly up and down, right to left. As
she became more awake, she realized that this could not be a
normal aircraft since its movements were too quick and too
erratic. She awoke her husband who also saw the darting lights
and strange objects in the sky. He pointed out that the there
were little white lights flashing near the larger light. They
watched until 4:45 AM when the lights suddenly disappeared.
New Bern is on the Neuse River that leads to Pamilico Sound and
the Atlantic Ocean. The lights were mostly over the water an
estimated thirty miles away. Laura indicated she had checked
around and no one else had observed the lights. Thanks to


MYRTLE BEACH -- ISUR reports that on May 6, 2001, at about
11:15 PM, a licensed Security Officer was outside on the back
deck along with a friend when they noticed several aircraft off
to the south about 3 miles away. The aircraft continued to
approach their location (N.E.) until they were about 5000 feet
distant and at fairly low altitude. The witnesses then
identified them as 3 helicopters by engine noise, shape, and
lighting and noticed that they had formed into a triangular
formation. The witnesses could also make out a dark triangular
object WITHIN the triangular formation of escorting

The size of the unlit dark triangular craft was estimated as
larger than a DC-8, but smaller than a 747 that has a 196-foot
wingspan and length of 231 feet. A fourth helicopter was
trailing at about 200-500 yards. The witnesses had a
relatively good 5-minute view of this fly-over. The primary
witness attempted to get to a camera, but was unable to get a
photo. He indicated that the Navy/Air Force installations at
Charleston, SC are seventy miles south while Shaw AFB is 80+
miles west. In the recent past a much smaller triangular
object had also been personally observed at a nearby beach with
a blue haze below the craft. The primary witness is a graduate
of military flight school, and the second witness was a USAF
dependant. The case was referred to SC MUFON for additional
local investigation. Please note that this is ANOTHER case of
a dark triangle seemingly escorted by helicopters and within
reasonable distance of an AFB. Thanks to Tom Sheets, ISUR
Board, State Direct! or-MUFON of Georgia


ST.LUCIE COUNTY -- Lorraine Gerber of Tampa Bay MUFON and
Assistant State Director of Florida writes that supposedly a US
Navy F-18 fighter crashed. Gregg wrote that he works for a
company that rents de-watering pumps for the construction
industry and he rented two pumps to a construction company that
has the contract to de-water the site where supposedly a F-18
US Navy Fighter flew straight into the ground and was engulfed
by the earth leaving a large crater. The craft supposedly did
not disintegrate on impact or explode. He believes there is a
cover-up under way. Our man delivered the two pumps into St.
Lucie County, 15 miles east of Lake Okeechobee on US Hwy 70 to
the V-Bar Ranch and preceded to the second gate where he was
stopped and the construction company took the two pumps down to
the third gate where he saw tent city and armed US Military on
patrol. The F-18 Navy Fighter crash allegedly occurred on May
30, 2001. The construction company that rented our pumps is!
doing the de-watering only and not the excavation of the crater
that is being done by the US Govt. I think there is a possible
cover-up and our government is excavating whatever fell to
earth such as a satellite, missile, or UFO. Thanks to Gregg
and Lorraine Gerber lg131@prodigy.net


WAYNESVILLE -- Kenny Young reports he is investigating a case
that took place on April 25, 2001, when civilians and law
enforcement officers in Warren County report a very strange
object in the evening skies. A couple was the first to report
a circular lighted object hovering silently. The big light of
the UFO, pulsating or changing color and brightness, was
encased within a structure that resembled grid work or cabling.
The couple advised the Lebanon City Police Department around
10:15 p.m. and the Warren County Communications Center
dispatched a Waynesville police officer that confirmed the
unidentifiable nature of the object and reported a second UFO
in the area. As other officers respond the dispatchers at the
Warren County Communications Center telephone a base operator
at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton and to Airborne
Express at the Wilmington Airport in Clinton County. Both
flight control facilities denied any knowledge of the UFOs.

While the Waynesville police officers view the object from
Wilkerson Road, a police dispatcher also observed the same
object from her position at the Warren County Communications
Center. An officer with the Caesar's Creek State Police also
notes the UFO from his location to the east of Waynesville. A
third UFO is sighted in the area during the event, and the
police witnesses repeatedly affirm a cogent distinction between
the suspected UFOs and routine stars and airplanes. The
objects move off as other officers from the Ohio State Patrol
arrive on the scene. The next evening, UFOs are again viewed
from Wilkerson Road at 9:48 PM, and also by officers near the
Waynesville Airport. Another unusual object is seen seven
hours later that pursues a motorist near Genntown, Ohio (about
5-miles from Waynesville). A female complainant advises the
Ohio State Patrol of her 'extreme concern' regarding a
triangular object with "super bright lights" that pursued her
automobile while trave! ling on Route 122 at 5:00 AM at April
26. Thanks to Kenny Young ufo@fuse.net

CLEVELAND -- At 7:30 PM a long silver cylindrical object
without visible wingspan was first sighted on May 12, 2001, at
an elevation of 45 degrees moving slowly west. The sighting
was verified by two other witnesses who saw the UFO move
horizontally just above the power lines. The lack of visible
wings and lack of any vapor trail behind object was most
notable. One observer speculated it may be a rocket of some
sort, but no exhaust was seen and no sounds were heard. The
object passed behind broad vapor trails created by passenger
aircraft moving in the opposite direction. The object slowly
faded into the haze in the southwestern sky. No wings or
rudder structures or emanations were noted. The object moved
much faster than the Goodyear Blimp often seen in this area,
and any lighter than aircraft we've seen shaped like a fat
cigar, with markings or running lights which this shiny object
never displayed.


SCAPPOOSE ­ The witness was driving northbound on Highway 30
from Portland to Astoria, Oregon on May 12, 2001, he noticed a
very bright yellow/white light descending. At 9:45 PM, just
outside of Scappoose he pulled his car off to the side of the
highway thinking it might be a meteorite. As the car neared a
hill, the object "morphed" into an actual ship with bright
lights. They lights were blinking within the trees and the
craft rose straight up. The witness says, I pulled the car
over again, in disbelief. It began moving as though it were
going to cross the highway, so I got back on the road after two
cars drove by. The craft, wider than the 4-lane highway and
ten feet above the telephone wires flew directly over the cars.
Both cars' brake lights came on, but neither stopped! I sped
up, and as it crossed the highway anxiously looked for a road
to turn down. I turned east onto a small road, crossed the RR
tracks and sped up, all the while keeping my eyes on the craft,
! which I could see through the trees. It was now heading south
at 20 to 25 miles per hour. The lights were blinking very
brightly in an interesting rhythm, but there was no reflection
on the actual craft that was nearly invisible.

The witness claims he saw the craft twice several months ago in
Astoria while his female partner saw it three times and took
photos. The light patterns are very distinctive. I got out of
my truck and watched as the craft stopped and hovered
approximately 1/10 mile east of me, and 50 feet up. There was
no sound or movement. Strangely aware that they knew I was
watching, I became frightened, and, legs shaking, got back in
the truck, where my usually very active dog was sitting
quietly. I drove about 20 feet, and then stopped when a car
pulled up behind me. I jumped out of the truck and pointed,
yelling, "UFO!” They got out of their car and stood staring at
the lights as it zoomed off maybe 3 miles? The man said, "I
was in the government for years and that was no plane or
helicopter either. Peter Davenport reports he spoke at length
with the witness, and found her to be an exceptionally
credible. Thanks to NUFORC.


SAN FRANCISCO -- Ruben Uriarte writes that on Sunday, April 8,
2001, at about 4:00 PM, a married Latino couple was doing some
sight seeing and filming near Golden Gate Bridge. They went
home and discovered that they had filmed a strange object
flying over the bridge span and floating above the bay. The
husband then shared the video with his friends and family.
Later he decided to take the video to several Spanish Speaking
television stations that were not interested until he
approached the Telemundo Channel 48 station, a large Spanish
speaking TV network. They contacted me as a representative for
MUFON, to be interviewed in Spanish and to view the video that
shows a dark object flying very fast over the center span of
the bridge. There is a scene with a strange dark object
hovering above the bay. The witnesses claim they did not see
any craft. Telemundo did a two part series on the UFO
phenomenon for two days. The video footage was broadcast on
the 6 and 11:00 PM news.! Many viewers had sighting experiences.
The station is very interested in providing more UFO news
coverage to their viewers. The Telemundo staff will be making
copies so that I can distribute them for analysis within the
MUFON and research network. Thanks to Ruben Uriarte MUFON

ST.CATHARINES, ONTARIO -- James Miller writes, “On a drive last
summer down the north shore of Lake Erie, we stopped to take a
few pictures of local scenes. Just over the tree line is the
lake. I recall at the time of this shot, there was nothing in
the sky; winds were calm, and no debris in the air. When I
downloaded the images into the computer, one caught my eye.
The object in the image does not have wings or a vertical
stabilizer. The picture was taken with a Kodak DC200 digital ­
with no enhancement. Thanks to James Miller 250 Lake Street
and Larry Clark nymufon@NYCAP.rr.com. Photo is at


GRIMSBY, LINCOLNSHIRE -- Mr. D. lives in Northeast
Lincolnshire, and was amazed to witness an orange colored UFO
near his home at about 1.30 AM on April 16, 2001. He was out
walking his dog on Milton Road near local school fields. He
noticed a signal flare, but realized it was too big to be a
flare, plus it was giving off a sort of burning coal ember
effect. Mr. D says, "I could make out orange and red moving
around like two paint colors mixing together about a half mile
up in the sky." As he watched the object dropped at least half
its height then catapulted straight up and out of view. Mr. D
was upset and thought it was a serious weapon and expected it
to explode on impact, but it didn't. He got in touch with the
British Ministry of Defence who responded that there was no
defense significance to the object. Thanks to Chris Evers,

A staff person wrote saying, “I work for a Member of Congress
from I need your help.” I hope I can get you excited about
this; after all these years of waiting for the government to
say about the UFO cover-up --because now is the chance we have
been waiting for -- but only if we act now...and speak out.
Here's my plan... It is important that members of Congress
realize what the Press Conference at the National Press Club in
Washington D C on May 9th was all about -- The fact that 400
military, intelligence, government and corporate professionals
(many very high-level) want to be subpoenaed and called to
Washington, D.C. to testify at a Congressional hearing about
their direct, first-hand knowledge of on-going projects and
events which relate to advanced energy & propulsion
technologies which are available now. Snip. Mail or FAX a
version of the following letter to your members of Congress
making certain you put your address on the letter so they will
know you are a const! ituent.

Inside address: Congressman Walter Jones (or whoever) type
address this line Washington, D. C., 20515 Dear Congressman
______: As a member of the of the 107th Congress, I feel this
letter will be of special interest to you. We need your
leadership. We know you have influence with your colleagues.
As a constituent, I ask that you read this letter carefully.
Four hundred (400) military, intelligence, government and
corporate professionals (many very high level) want to be
subpoenaed and called to Washington, D.C. to testify at a
Congressional hearing about their direct, first-hand knowledge
of on-going projects and events which relate to advanced energy
& propulsion technologies which are available now, but have
been suppressed. At a press conference of The Disclosure
Project on May 9th at the National Press Club in Washington,
D.C. 14 military men stood up to say they want to tell Congress
of their knowledge and personal involvement in and of events
despite the fact tha! t they have signed security oaths designed
to prohibit the release of this "above top secret" information.
They were only 14 out of 400 who want to speak out. They feel
strongly that it is critical for this information to be
revealed because of the pollution and energy problems that
exist worldwide. A letter of invitation and a 1/2" briefing
document entitled, "Executive Summary of the Disclosure Project
Briefing Document" was hand-delivered to your D.C. office on
April 26th. The technology they want Congress and the American
people to know about was developed and is controlled today
through so-called "black budget" special access projects that
have escaped Congressional oversight. The facts will come out,
when hearings on held, that this technology has been largely
obtained from the reverse -engineering of retrieved
extraterrestrial vehicles.

A few of the men who want to testify include Brigadier
Generals, a Strategic Air Command Minuteman Missile Launch
Controller, FAA Head of Accidents & Investigations, Navy
Commanders, military air traffic controllers, DIA officials,
McDonnell Douglas Aerospace and Boeing engineers and NASA
contractors. Hearings need to commence immediately because
technology exists which are non-polluting and zero point energy
exists in these compartmentalized "black budget" project
programs. Please gather a group of your colleagues and contact
Dr. Steven Greer, the Director of the Disclosure Project for a
private briefing (540/456-8302.) This group, like a good
reporter, has identified the Who, Where, When, What, Why & How
of this 50 year cover-up. I promise that you will not be
wasting your time that you will be very impressed and no one
will be laughing afterwards. I want to emphasize that despite
what you have been told by the U.S. Air Force and the media,
evidence - hard evidence - e! xists. The Disclosure Project
has proof. Imagine all of the appropriations money - billions
of dollars - that goes into research and projects for which
these "black budget" programs already have the finished
product. The American people paid for this technology with
their tax dollars and are entitled to the benefits. I await
your reply and hope you will tell me that a hearing is being
scheduled this year. There are no excuses, including national
security. Sincerely, your name


David E. Twichell writes, "The ancient astronaut and Biblical
UFO hypotheses are not new. However, no one seems to want to
take the matter to the next logical step. If Ezekiel's, "wheel
within a wheel," and Moses', "pillar of fire and cloud," were
forerunners of today's UFOs, then the Star of Bethlehem and the
brilliant cloud to which Jesus ascended must be treated in the
same vein. When Biblical descriptions of anomalous aerial
phenomena are overlaid on that of modern-day UFO reports, the
picture seems to meld as one. Once the evidence has been
presented, the reader is led to a conclusion that is at best
convincing and at least thought provoking. Are you willing to

Jeff Challender has prepared a new tape of various UFOs that
were caught on recent Shuttle video footage. Jeff has over an
hour-long tape of UFOs shot in space. Jeff spends hundreds of
hours watching the shuttle broadcasts from space and is now an
expert on NASA missions and even those onboard the shuttle are
unlikely to see what Jeff does. Using Jeff's directions you
will be able to learn the difference between space junk, ice
crystals and real UFOs. One segment has 24 UFOs watching the
shuttle from space. I feel confident we could go into a court
of law and convince any jury, UFOs are moving around our Earth.
