Filer's Files #18 -- 2000, MUFON Skywatch Investigations
George A. Filer, Director, Mutual UFO Network Eastern
May 1, 2001, Sponsored by Electronic Arts,
Webmaster Chuck Warren,

UFOs ARE REPORTED AROUND THE WORLD -- Large 'motherships' and
smaller UFOs are being reported from almost every state
including Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Ohio,
Indiana, Louisiana, Texas, plus Columbia, England, Germany,
Brunei, and Australia. Intense solar flare activity blasting
radiation millions of miles into space has created speculation
that the UFOs are coming into Earth's atmosphere for protection.
The US Air Force investigated UFOs for twenty years admitting to
more than ten thousand sightings. Despite intensive
investigation almost ten percent remain unexplained. Congressman
Gerald Ford asked Congress to investigate UFOs in 1966, is now
the time?


To hold open, secrecy-free hearings on the UFO/Extraterrestrial
presence on and around Earth. To hold open hearings on advanced
energy and propulsion systems that, when publicly released, will
provide solutions to global environmental challenges. To enact
comprehensive legislation to research, develop and explore space
peacefully and cooperatively with all cultures on Earth and in
space. The recorded testimony of scores of military, government,
and other witnesses to Unidentified Flying Objects and
Extraterrestrial events and projects from around the world
establishes the existence of an UFO/Extraterrestrial presence on
and around Earth. This recorded testimony consists of dozens of
firsthand, often top-secret witnesses to UFO and
Extraterrestrial events, internal UFO-related government
projects and covert activities, space-based weapons programs,
Extraterrestrial Intelligence, and covert, reverse-engineered
energy and propulsion system projects.

The technologies that are of an Extraterrestrial origin, when
publicly released within a planned transition period, will
provide solutions to global environmental and security
challenges. These numerous recorded witnesses constitute only a
small portion of a vast pool of identified present or former
military, intelligence, corporate, aviator, flight control, law
enforcement officers, scientists and other witnesses, who will
come forward when subpoenaed to testify at US Congressional
hearings. Without a grant of immunity releasing them from their
security oaths, many such unimpeachable witnesses fear to speak
out. This will provide unprecedented benefits and opportunities
to all on Earth and in space. Contact: Alfred Webre
604-733-8134 or Dr. Steven Greer 540-456-8302

Editor's Note: I will be one of the speakers on May 9 in
Washington, DC to request hearings. Former President Ford told
me that he was never provided information on UFOs despite his
requests as Speaker of the House, Vice President and as
President of the United States.


KENSINGTON -- On April 13, 2001, the witness was out walking
about 10:45 PM when she saw a glowing object that looked like a
diamond shooting star, only it wasn't shooting. The witness
started to look more closely. She said, it kind of spooked me
out a first, because it wasn't making a noise and it was flying
low. Then I walked onto another street when it started coming
closer going towards the center of town, (Berlin). As it flew in
that direction I saw that it was sort of a cigar shaped object
with no blinking lights, just solid red and white lights. I
continued walking towards my house and then I noticed another
one coming from the same direction. I saw this person in a car
and I asked them to stop. The girl was kind of freaked out that
I was stopping her at night. "Look at that!" She goes "Its a
plane" and I'm like "NO! Its something else, I just saw another
one." She was very skeptical. I watched it go towards the same
direction as the first. The second object had the same
description as the first. 1.) At first it looked like a glowing
Diamond sort of thing. 2.) It had solid red and white lights.
3.) The craft were kind of cigar shaped. 4.) Both flew very low
about the altitude of a helicopter. 5.) They weren't making a
sound. The lady who stopped asked to use my cell phone to call
her friend that lived in the area. Thanks to Peter Davenport,
Director National Reporting Center. <A

On Sunday night April 29, 2001, Regis Philbin the host of the
most popular game show on television "Who Wants to be a
Millionaire" asked the contestant to tell about her UFO
sighting. The contestant mentioned briefly her UFO encounter
near Pine Bush, New York. The audience chuckled, so she pointed
out that she wasn't a kook!


WEST BERLIN -- Mrs. D'Imperio writes, at 9:30 PM on September
12, 2000, our family saw a very huge lighted disc up in the sky.
My brother in-law shouted for the family to come out on the
deck. We all looked up and saw a lighted wheel with what looked
like bicycle spokes coming out of it. Another ring was on the
outside. What amazed me was lights were coming down the spokes
going around the outside of the other ring coming back to where
they started and coming together all of them in the center of
the ring. They kept repeating this action. Then from another
direction of the sky came a second object that joined going
around the circle but making another spoke. As we watched for
some time two helicopters came overhead. One was bigger then the
other and went straight for what we were watching. They were
flying around for a while. If I attempted to draw the UFO, it
would look like a wheel within a wheel with lights going around
and coming together in the middle. I posted this information on
the web. Thanks to Mrs. D'Imperio at alian


ROANOKE -- Andy and Robin Hodge report seeing flying yellowish
white round orb like objects? We saw two together while out on
my deck April 23, 2001. They were close together and moving so
fast I barely caught a glimpse before they were behind the
clouds. They were definitely not conventional aircraft. They
could have been meteors but do they travel together in twos? I
saw no tail, just round fast moving yellowish white lights that
looked like orb shapes. There were many airplanes out during
this time, but none could move that fast! Thanks to Robin at


CADIZ - The witness was coming home from work on April 19, 2001,
when he noticed a white light globe off in the distance over my
house at 11:55 PM. He states, it is very unusual for craft to
fly low over my small town residence. As I got closer to my home
the globe started moving very quickly across the sky. It would
move east then stop on a dime and move west, stop again and go
straight up and east. I pulled in my drive way and the white
light globe lowered itself to three miles away. It hovered again
and the white light turned red. It stood there for a few seconds
then started west, the red light began flashing fast like a
strobe light, and it just vanished. I live outside of town with
few lights and I could hear dogs all over town barking. When the
light vanished all the dogs stopped barking. Two days ago at
midnight I was watching TV when my entire house started shaking
very faintly though enough that my candles were vibrating off
the window." The witness is a very respected person in his
community with a degree in law enforcement. He ran inside
grabbed his camcorder and drove to the top of the hill where you
can see for miles, but the light never came back.

OHIO UFO INTERCEPT -- James Greenen a MUFON field investigator
reports that on April 24, and 25, 2001, on an
Internet chatroom a gentleman who runs that sight that had a UFO
fly over his car. The UFO stopped his car. He observed a F-15 at
full throttle with wings back and afterburners on, break sound
barrier and pull up along side of the UFO that suddenly made a
quick left hand turn in front of the F-15, and the pilot almost
lost it. His dad observed a UFO the night before and got
pictures of it. He needs help investigating this sighting. The
control towers in a couple of cities around him have told him
that the information is none of his business. Stop by on and join the group. The gentleman's name is
nighthawk. Thanks to James Greenen MUFON FI


MIDDLETOWN -- We noticed an orange colored light in the sky
straight ahead on April 19, 2001, so we watched it for about
twenty minutes at 4:30 AM. The light appeared to be in a
triangular formation. A plane flew underneath the UFO and as it
went under the red lights appeared on the UFO as if it were
giving a warning. The UFO started moving slowly at first gaining
speed toward the right and then it came to a stop and hovered
for about five minutes. Then a small star shaped object branched
off of it and started flying straight up and around as if it
were in orbit with the earth, but still in the atmosphere. The
star shaped light disappeared, but we continued to watch the
other object as it started moving further away and disappeared.
It was neither a plane nor a star and I have never seen any
thing like this before.

CLOSE TO ILLINOIS STATE LINE -- The witness on April 18, 2001,
was traveling on Interstate 90 in Indiana, and noticed a cross
like or star like object in the sky. It was very bright opaque
white and larger than surrounding stars. The object was above
horizon as we traveled late in the night. The object rose
vertically and moved in the opposite direction we were
traveling. I moved forward in my seat, turned my head upward and
to the left as it passed over the roof of the vehicle. When the
object was passing I got a good side view and a bit of the back
of the object. The witness stated, "There were many small red
lights curved around the base and the lights flashed on either
side of the craft." The flashes possibly obscured more red
lights on the far side. The red lights curving gave the
impression that the object was circular or at least the base was
circular. I viewed a bright, white cross like or star like
object with many smaller red lights. I will confirm time with my
spouse. Peter Davenport of NUFORC spoke with this witness, and
found her to be quite lucid and serious-minded in her
description of the event. <A


SCHAUMBURG -- I was outside on my roof at 2:18 AM on April 15,
2001, because that is the time the ship Titanic sank 89 years
ago. Well, I was looking up at the stars wondering how those
people felt when I saw a flash of light come from behind me. I
got scared because I thought it was lightning, and I turned
north to see for sure. There were no clouds or anything, so I
turned around. Maybe 30 seconds later it happened again and this
time I felt a gust of wind also from the North. I looked up
towards the sky and saw a bright shiny object moving very
slightly in the sky. It was almost diamond/tear shaped and
definitely not a planet, star or satellite. I'm in an astronomy
class and I know the difference between the three objects.
Therefore, I was a little scared and curious. I stood up and
waved at it, and then it disappeared. Peter Davenport notes
that, if this event occurred, we question whether it had
anything to do with the sinking of the Titanic.


On April 25, 2001, at 9: 02 PM Carol sighted an object coming
from the west. The object appeared red and white kind of blended
together flying fairly high at a pretty fast speed, and faster
than most planes. It got behind the many trees in the front yard
and I walked to the other side of the yard and saw it again.
Carol states, "It was a larger solid round white light moving at
the same speed gliding smoothly along as they usually do."
Before leaving my sight flying southeast, it again turned to the
red mixed with white color. It became smaller and continued on
the same flight path. Sighting lasted approximately two minutes.
Thanks to


GRAHAM -- Donna B. writes that on April 24, 2001, at
approximately 10:30 AM, I observed a large oval object in the
southeastern sky; it was silver in color and was hovering.
Cannot determine how high it was. It "faded" instead of blinking
out this time. There wasn't time to grab binoculars and camera,
unfortunately. Have observed this type of UFO before, but have
never seen them just fade. Thanks to Donna B.


BOGOTÁ -- William Chavez reports that on April 23, 2001, at 4:15
p.m., three objects of unknown origin were seen flying over
Bogotá where more than 3,000 people in the city's business
district witnessed them. The objects were in the vicinity of
Cerro El Cable Hill where they remained motionless for four
minutes. Radio broadcaster "Radiodifusora Nacional" and Todelar
phoned Contacto OVNI, our research organization, to discuss this
sighting live, and because in recent years this type of
phenomenon has become increasingly common. Last March, a
"mothership" was captured on video over Barrio Santa Isabel.
When the video was analyzed it was possible to see a large
tubular object at an altitude of 10,000 feet. This object also
headed toward Bogotá's Cerro El Cable Hill. On April 15th, Mr.
Oscar Berrio filmed a disc-shaped object in the vicinity of El
Dorado Airport, and we are investigating this sighting. Thanks

DERBYSHIRE, ENGLAND -- Andy Darlington of the Matlock Mercury
Newspaper writes, "The mystery of UFO sightings over the Peaks
and Dales shows no signs of abating after the 23rd reported
sighting in the last eight months." Since September, locals have
spoken of strange lights, flying saucers, and huge triangular
craft in the skies. One was even caught on video. Now a
34-year-old Wirksworth man, who asked not to be named, says he
saw a giant disk-shaped craft over Idridgehay. He was driving to
market in Derby at 3:00 AM when he saw the UFO hovering near the
road. In addition, he was the first person who'd seen the UFOs
to admit feeling afraid by what he saw. "It did frighten me
because I couldn't explain what it was," he remarked. "I've
never seen anything like this before and logic couldn't explain
it. It was shocking. I've never been believer in UFOs and
sightings but I believe in them now." The man said the craft was
hovering above woods and seemed to rotate. It had blue, red, and
white lights. The incident follows another sighting of three
flying saucers above Youlgrave last Wednesday. Thanks to Gerry @


MANNHEIM -- Christian Siedenbiedel reports that the German UFO
Registration Office run by Werner Walter has been stressed out
since the beginning of February. "A new UFO craze has started in
Germany," groans the 43-year-old man who has headed the Office
for the past 10 years. "Forty unidentified flying objects in six
weeks -- that's more than in 1999 and 2000 put together." Mr.
Walter puts some of the blame for this latest wave of UFO
hysteria on increased television coverage of the crash of the
Russian Mir space station, the planet Venus, and disco
searchlights. Even the police called on one occasion; claim they
had pursued a UFO in their patrol car. These were most likely
the searchlights. A woman in the town of KONSTANZ, claimed she
had seen a cylindrical object that was several hundred meters
(yards) long above her on the market square in broad daylight.
Someone in Hamburg observed a "classical" flying saucer with a
diameter of 30 meters (100 feet). An "extraterrestrial theme
park" is even being built for millions in Switzerland. Thanks to
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung Apr. 23, 2001.


GADONG -- On April 26, 2001, a husband and wife claimed that
they had seen an unknown flying object in Gadong's airspace at
around 12:30 AM. They were on their way home from a dinner
occasion when Philip Chua, 33, and wife, Silvia Goh Mei Ling,
28, were shocked by the bright object in the skies. They had
earlier seen the UFO around the area of Jalan Tungku Link.
Coincidentally, he had a camera with him. He stopped his car and
took pictures of the object, but the object vanished as if 'it'
knew someone was taking pictures of 'it'. He said when
interviewed by Media Permata. Upon passing a bridge near
Emperor's Court, the wife claimed that they saw an object that
appeared again near Rimba, The next day; Chua sent the film to
his friend's shop to be developed. Strangely, while his friend
was processing the film, the shop's power was cut off for an
hour. However, Chua felt relief as the object was captured on
the film. He spread the word around his friends. Translated via

SALT ASH, NSW -- Darryyll Jones writes that he holds an ultra
light pilots license and a yachtsman so he is more aware of the
sky. On April 26, 2001, 15 miles north of Newcastle. I was
looking at the sky with a friend at 8:00 PM when a huge
triangular outlined shape formed by white lights, mostly on the
leading edge, but enough on the trailing edge to define this
boomerang outline, flew directly over head. It had to be
massive. My first impression was that it was between 10,000 to
30,000 feet high. It was 5 degrees wide, silent and flew
straight with no ionization trail. Suddenly it was gone like the
lights went out. Only minute's later single lights began
scribing perfect arc's between 40 to 80 degrees south, first in
one direction then the other in exactly the same circuit, then
they too were gone. They were making a crescent shape as they
too were fading out in the western portion of their arc. I have
wracked my brain for an explanation such birds, aircraft, or
asteroids. My friend and I sat down and made notes that were
near identical. We concluded the most likely explanation was a
mother ship and the single orbs somehow came from it.

I am still far from satisfied with that explanation though. As
the military aircraft from a nearby RAAF base were out in larger
than normal numbers, the three helicopters and possibly five
F18's might have been a laser type focused display. The triangle
was "flying" in the direction of the base. My friend was looking
the other way when I spotted the triangle approaching. He got
two and a half seconds to observe it, while I got five. We
agreed on what we saw. The orbs were around for 13 passes for
three minutes at very high speed. They dimmed out as they headed
west for the sun now over the horizon, suggesting again deep
space objects. The main group and then fractured and returned to
earth much like fighter pilots peel off. There was a small storm
in the distance with heavy lightning that continued all night.
Others claim to regularly see the big triangle inland at
Bathurs.  Thanks to Darryyll Jones Editor's Note: Two well qualified
witnesses observed a UFO. The craft may be stationed at the
nearby air base or pulling into our atmosphere for protection
from unusually heavy solar flares emanating from our sun.


US businessman Dennis Tito paid the Russians $20 million to go
into space. He blasted off successfully in the Soyuz TM-32
spacecraft and became the first space tourist when. He and his
two cosmonaut crewmates successfully docked with the
international space station on April 30, as the two vehicles
sailed 240 miles above central Asia. Tito says, "I love space."
The 60 year-old apparently had no problems adjusting to space.
"It was a great trip here." The US strongly opposed the trip by
an American civilian. It will be interesting to find out what he
sees in space. Thanks to Space Flight


This is a translation of a Taiwan Daily Gazette article. "In a
heroic dogfight fought over international waters off the
mainland China coast, a 60s era American-built Lockheed Electra
propeller airliner with 24 US Navy passengers/observers aboard
chewed up one of China's best state-of-the-art supersonic
fighter aircraft. The Americans, utilizing the infrequently seen
combat tactic of straight and level flight, often accomplished
by relying solely on autopilot, engaged the unfortunate single
seat combat jet and knocked it out of the air using only one of
its four formidable rotating air mass propellers. After the
action, the crew and passengers/observers dropped in on China's
Hainan Island Resort, for some much-deserved R&R as guests of
the Chinese government. Reprinted from the Taiwan Daily Gazette
by staff writer One Wing Lo, Ray (WA4RLB) and Brenda Burt


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
risk having your worldview shaken? Read the preface free at:

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. Send $25
