RECENT ACTIVITY AND HIGHLIGHTS

NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATE ON THURSDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 11, 2016

Our website has been updated, as of this date, with the posting of approximately 140 new written sighting reports, submitted via our Online Report Form since Friday of last week, February 5th.

In our haste to get some fascinating reports posted quickly, and in preparation for two radio programs, we probably have not proofread the reports as carefully as we always aspire to do.  Consequently, be on the alert for what appear to be prank reports, or flawed times and dates.  If you discover what you believe may be a flawed report, please send an e-mail to director@ufocenter.com, and we will address the issue quickly.

We have received many of what we consider to be unusually interesting and dramatic events, which we would like to call to the attention of visitor to our website:

·         Colorado Springs, Colorado, Thursday, February 04, 2016, @ 2300 hrs. (Mountain)—A husband is suddenly awakened from a sound sleep by what he perceived to be a “presence” in his bedroom.  Immediately after awakening, he notes that the room is filled with a red “fog,” which appears to him to be suddenly sucked out of the room, as if by a vacuum cleaner.  He attempts to wake his wife and dog, but is unable to do so.  Hearing a buzzing sound, he walks to the front door and opens it, only to see a blue- and chrome-colored, disc-shaped object hovering over his front yard.  The object just suddenly disappears from his sight.  Witness Report

·         Claysburg, Pennsylvania, Saturday, February 6th, 2016, @ 1900 hrs. (Eastern)--While sitting on a ski lift, a father and his 14-year old son, who describe themselves as extremely experienced night sky watchers, witness two very bright, “star-like” objects move across the night sky, almost directly overhead.  At first, the witnesses assumed that the objects were satellites, although they were moving across the sky at a very high (angular) velocity, about three times that of a satellite in a typical low-Earth orbit, and they were converging rapidly.  The witnesses were even more surprised to see the objects suddenly stop, circle one another, and then go shooting back in the same direction from which they had just come.  Witness Report

·         Western United States, Wednesday, February 10th, 2016, @ 0510 hrs. (Pacific)—Approximately 90 minutes after a Delta IV rocket was launched from Vandenberg AFB, witnesses from California, Oregon, Idaho, and Nevada, report a number of very strange sighting events.  NUFORC initially assumed that the witnesses had recorded the incorrect time, and that they had witnessed the launch from Vandenberg.  However, subsequent investigation has satisfied us that the witnesses observed something very unusual, as further supported by the illustration provided by a witness in Lebanon, Oregon. Witness Report 1  Witness Report 2   Witness Report 3  Witness Report 4   See image to right.

·         Southern California, Thursday, February 11th, 2016, @ 0640 hrs. (Pacific)—Multiple witnesses in the Los Angeles and San Diego area witnessed a peculiar “blue-green” objects streak across the morning sky, lasting for an estimated 5-15 seconds.  The object may have been a long-duration meteor, but some of the reports provide information that make us wonder about that explanation.  Please see reports for the morning of February 11, 2016. 

RADIO APPEARANCES

Peter Davenport, NUFORC Director, will present his weekly update on Coast to Coast AM, hosted by George Noory, appearing on that program at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on Thursday, February 12, 2016.  Peter will talk about the cases above, and about other items, as well.

Peter will appear on the Jeff Rense radio program on Friday night, February 12, 2016, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (Pacific), and will be joined by at least three sets of witnesses, who will describe their sightings.

We will update the website again, within the next several days. 

Posted on Thursday night, February 11, 2016.


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATE ON FEBRUARY 4TH, 2016

The NUFORC database of sighting reports has been updated, with the posting of 106 new sightings, submitted since January 29th

With every updating, we encourage visitors to our website to be on the alert for flawed sighting reports, most of all with regard to the times and dates indicated by the witnesses.  We always attempt to purge the reports of errors, and to label obviously hoaxed reports for what they are, but we know from experience that some errors can slip through our screening and proof-reading process.  If you encounter what you believe may be an error or a hoaxed report, please send a note to director@ufocenter.com and we will deal with the issue as quickly as possible.

RADIO APPEARANCE

Peter Davenport, NUFORC Director, will make his weekly appearance on the Coast to Coast AM radio program, hosted by Mr. George Noory, on Thursday night, February 4th Peter will discuss a four or five recent reports, a few of which are featured below: 

·         Bolton (Lake George), New York, Sunday, January 24, 2016, @ 1649 hrs. (EST)—A commercial pilot, on a VFR flight that took him over Lake George, witnesses what at first he thought was a landing light on an approaching aircraft.  However, as his aircraft got closer to the object, the unidentified object appeared to the witness to change its color to red, or perhaps yellow, and it began to appear rectangular in shape.  Approximately 6 or 7 minutes after the witness first observed the object, it just suddenly vanished from his sight.  Witness Report

·         West Suffield, Connecticut, Sunday, January 31st, 2016, @ 2045 hrs. (EST)—A mother, while letting her dog out, suddenly becomes aware of five bright, very prominent orange lights, which move slowly across the night sky behind some nearby trees.  She calls her son out to look at the objects, which suddenly accelerate abruptly, and streak off into the north sky.  Mother’s Report    Son’s Report   Graphic Panel Provided by the WItnesses

·         Fife, Washington, Wednesday, February 03rd, 2016, @ 1900 hrs. (PST)—A family, driving south on Interstate 5 in Fife, located just north of Tacoma, has its attention suddenly drawn to a very bright green light, that illuminated the sky to their left.  The illumination lasted for approximately 3 seconds, and then occurred on two more occasions.  The father, who was driving, is an aviation mechanic in the aerospace industry, and states that he has never seen anything like it. Witness Report

We will update the website again, within the next several days.

Posted on Thursday night, February 04, 2016.


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 29, 2016

We have updated the website, as of this date, with the posting of approximately 110 new, or recently amended, reports. 

We have proof-read the reports as carefully as possible, but as we always do, we encourage visitors to the NUFORC website to be on the alert for flawed or hoax reports, dates and time that don’t appear to match the text of the report, and other possible mistakes.  If you detect an error, please send the details of the report to director@ufocenter.com, and we will examine the report more carefully that we did upon our first inspection.

Some of the recent reports and issues that we would like to call to the special attention of visitors to our site appear below:

Orbs that appear to change colors:  Over the last several years, we have focused attention on the strange appearance of clusters of red and orange “fireballs.”  Interestingly, NUFORC has received a few reports recently about these peculiar orbs which appear to have changed colors.  One such report was just submitted regarding a sighting of just such an object in Amsterdam, New York, on Thursday, January 28, 2016, at 2300 hrs. (Eastern). Witness Report  The witnesses managed to capture rather good video footage, which appears to show clearly the sudden color change of the object from green to red.  We will post this shortly.

Orbs that appear possibly to be ascribable to lanterns:  Some sightings of “orbs” appear to involve the launching of so-called “Chinese” lanterns, or “Sky lanterns,” which are powered by candles, or by other pyrotechnic devices.  Based on the photos that have accompanied a report from Huntington, Texas, Witness Report, for a sighting there on Saturday, January 23rd, 2016, @ 2015 hrs. (Central), we wonder whether this report might be an example of such lanterns.  The objects in the photo seem to us to indicate a pyrotechnic device, illuminating a lighter colored envelope.  We cannot be certain what the objects are, but the quality of the photo is such, so as to make us wonder whether this might be a relatively rare example of lanterns.

Sonic shock waves over the East Coast:  On Thursday, January 28th, NUFORC received a number of reports from the east coast of peculiar sounding sonic “booms,” which seemed to some witnesses to shake the earth.  The events were reported by the press from a number of states along the eastern seaboard, and U. S. military sources quickly reported that the events had been caused by military aircraft, specifically U. S. Navy F-18’s and the newly introduced F-35’s, which apparently is undergoing field testing.  However, based on at least one of the reports submitted to our Center.   Witness Report ((Note:  Date is flawed in database, and should read January 28.)), we have come to question whether the description provided by the military provides the full story, and another gentleman, Mr. Kurt Story, has come to the same conclusion.  We provide below his analysis of the event:

((BEGIN TEXT OF ANALYSIS OF SONIC “BOOMS” OVER THE EAST COAST, THURSDAY, JANUARY 28, 2016, BY MR. KURT STORY.))

Description: This is an analysis of the details of a “sonic boom” event reported along the New Jersey coast and surrounding areas.  The shaking was reported to have occurred around 1:23:45 PM local time on January 28, 2016.  After initial reports of ground movement came in, the USGS determined this was not an earthquake, but originating in the atmosphere. They estimated that as many as 9 sonic booms were reported, which the U. S. Navy has since attributed to a supersonic flyover by two jets in Naval airspace, located approximately 14 miles offshore. 

However, when one digs deeper, this explanation doesn't adequately explain the facts.  To clarify the details, I have included a diagram. The diagram is based on the USGS ”Did you feel it?” map of the event, which recorded eyewitness shaking reports made to the USGS.  I should point out that people generally contact USGS to report an earthquake, not a loud sound.  In my personal experience with several low-altitude supersonic flyovers, I have heard a sharp sound/air blast, but felt no ground movement.  However, in this case, ground shaking was reported as far away as 70 miles from the Navy airspace, as shown on the map.

The effects and range of sonic booms has been carefully studied.  Ground width of the boom exposure area is approximately 1 statute mile (1.6 km) for each 1,000 feet (300 m) of altitude (the width is about five times the altitude); that is, an aircraft flying supersonic at 30,000 feet (9,100 m) will create a lateral boom spread of about 30 miles (48 km).  In this case, we have reports from as far away as 70 miles.  So if the sonic booms were generated offshore in Naval airspace, that means the boom width is twice that, or ~140 miles.  Plugging that value into the equation gives us an altitude of 140,000 feet.  This is more than twice the stated operational altitude of the F-35C, and 3.5X the operational altitude of the F-18.

Therefore, I find it rather difficult to accept the official Navy explanation, as it simply does not explain all the observational data.  Even at first glance, it's hard to imagine how two small aircraft could displace enough air to cause ground shaking 70 miles away!  All the observational data should be considered to find a better explanation, wherever the facts may lead us.

((END ANALYSIS))

We post this analysis, not because we believe the event was in any way related to the presence of a UFO, but rather, because the military statement about the incident does not appear to explain it adequately well.  The apparent discrepancy seems to suggest that other factors may have been involved, which are not dealt with by the military’s explanation. 

We would invite witnesses to the event to submit reports, using our Online Report Form, found elsewhere on our website.

We express our gratitude to Mr. Story for his having shared the analysis with NUFORC, and for his having allowed us to share it with visitors to our website.

We will update the site again within the next several days.

NUFORC DATABASE AND WEBSITE UPDATED ON JANUARY 23RD, 2016

 

We updated our database of sighting reports on Wednesday, January 20, and we do so again, as of this date.  We have posted approximately 130 sighting reports, received since January 14th, 2016. 

 

We believe we’ve done a fairly credible job of proof-reading this batch of new reports, but there is always the possibility that we may have overlooked flawed and hoaxed reports.  As a result, we always encourage visitors to our website to be on the alert for reports that may be defective, or which may be attempts to mislead the reader.

 

We highlight below a few of the reports, which we believe deserve special attention of visitors to our website:

 

·         Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Saturday, June 07th, 1980, @ 1300 hrs. (Central)—A group of high school students, university undergraduates, and at least on Ph.D., sight a strange, metallic-looking object, seen hovering above a nearby empty field.  They are so “taken” by its appearance that they exit the restaurant where they are having lunch, in order to get a better look at the object, and satisfy their curiosity as to its nature. Witness Report

 

·         Tacoma, Washington, Friday, January 22nd, 2016, @ 2355 hrs. (Pacific)—An adult male, who describes himself as a pilot, among other talents, witnesses a fireball fly by his residence near Interstate 5 in Tacoma, Washington.  He estimated it was at an altitude of 500 feet, and traveling at approximately 60 miles per hour.  Witness Report

 

·         Hoquiam, Washington, Friday, January 22nd, 2016, @ 1900 hrs. (Pacific)—Four witnesses observe a total of seven orange objects pass overhead.  The objects appeared to maneuver, and several of them suddenly accelerated and shot up into the night sky.  Witness Report

 

·         Asheville, North Carolina, Thursday, January 21st, 2016, @ 1130 hrs. (Eastern)—A postal employee witnesses a circular object pass overhead, and suddenly disappear from his sight.  A second person witnesses the same object from a different location.  Witness Report

 

We will post again within the next several days, and will share some video and still photos that have been promised to us, but which have not arrived yet, at the time of this posting.

 

Posted on Saturday afternoon, January 23rd, 2016.


ABBREVIATED UPDATE OF NUFORC WEBSITE ON THURSDAY, JANUARY 14, 2016

We have updated the database of sighting reports, as of this date, with the posting of approximately 70 newly received reports.  We will update again, within the next several days.

Because of our haste in posting new reports, we have not proof-read them as carefully as we traditionally like to be able to do.  Consequently, there is a high likelihood that there are a number of reports that are hoaxes, cases of mistaken identity of terrestrial objects, and reports of celestial bodies, i.e. stars and planets.  If you encounter a report that is obviously not of a “bona fide” UFO, please feel free to send an e-mail to director@ufocenter.com, and we will address the issue quickly.

RADIO APPEARANCE

Peter Davenport will make his weekly appearance on Coast to Coast AM, hosted by George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time) on Thursday night, January 14, 2016.  Peter will discuss several cases, which include the following two reports:

·         Camp Mackall/Ft. Bragg, North Carolina, September 13, 2010, @ 23:30 hrs. (Eastern)—A Special Forces instructor, his assistant instructor, and a group of candidate trainees witness the huge, dark triangle depicted at right pass silently overhead.  Witness Report

·         Las Vegas, Nevada, Tuesday, January 05, 2016, @ 21:35 hrs. (Pacific Standard Time)—A former law enforcement officer witnesses a very large triangular object above the Santa Fe Casino.  The object was hovering motionless, and silently. Witness Report

We will post again, within the next several days.

Posted Thursday night, January 14, 2016.


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 8TH, 2015

Although we updated our website on Tuesday of this week, we do so again on this date, in order to post the most recent reports, prior to Peter’s appearance on two radio programs on Friday evening, January 08th.  

RADIO APPEARANCES

Peter will make his monthly appearance on the Jeff Rense Radio Program at from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time) on Friday night, January 08, 2016.  Jeff and Peter will host two guests, whose reports are summarized, and linked to, below:

·         Bahamas (near; at sea on a cruise ship), Monday, December 28, 2015, @ 19:45 hrs. (local)—A father and his two teenage sons, looking out over the ocean from their private cabin, witness a yellow light in the distance, which suddenly appears to approach the cruise ship they are aboard.  The light draws to within an estimated 100 feet of the ship, both vertically and laterally, and then accelerates from a dead stop, to gone over the horizon, within approximately 60 seconds. Witness Report

·         Adak, Alaska, (at sea aboard a fishing vessel) August 08th, 1996, @ 02:30 hrs. (local)—A deckhand, the boat’s skipper, and a number of other on-S125121board personnel, witness a huge object hovering in the vicinity of their fishing vessel.  Witness Report

A few other reports caught our attention, which are linked to below, together with illustrations:

·         Woodbury, Minnesota, Sunday, January 03rd, 2016, @23:00 hrs. (Central)—An adult male has his attention drawn to flashing lights outside his bedroom window.  He looks out his window and witnesses a triangular shaped craft, with strobing pink and blue lights on its ventral surface.  His rendering is shown to the right.   Witness Report   

·         Lake Wylie, South Carolina, Tuesday, January 05, 2016, @ 20:10 hrs. (Eastern)—An adult male, who is a former U. S. Navy officer, witnessed an estimated 8-10 orange-colored lights cross the nighttime sky.  He estimates that they covered the entire sky in 5-8 minutes.  Witness Report    Witness Photo

Peter will also appear on Coast to Coast AM at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on Friday, January 08th, 2016, with a guest host, who will replace George Noory.  Peter will discuss some of the cases above, and perhaps a few recent trends in ufology.

NUFORC IS BACK TO A NORMAL OPERATING SCHEDULE

At our last posting, on December 22nd, we requested that visitors to our site make every effort to refrain from placing all but the most urgent calls to our UFO Hotline over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.  It appears that most people heeded our request, for which we are grateful!  The volume of telephone calls diminished to the point at which we were able to handle them conveniently during our travels, and the volume of written reports seems to have continued unabated.  Thank you, one and all, for your co-operation on the matter!!  That co-operation made our Holiday much more enjoyable, while we were still able to provide citizens a means for submitting descriptions of their respective sightings during late December 2015.

NUFORC SITE UPDATED ON JANUARY 5TH, 2016

With this update, we have posted 332 new, or newly amended, reports, received by our Center since the morning of December 22nd, 2015.  We have proof-read them as carefully as possible, but we would counsel visitors to our website to be on the alert for errors, cases of mistaken identification, and out-and-out hoaxes.  If a visitor encounters what he or she believes may be a flawed report, please e-mail a comment to director@ufocenter.com, and we will address the issue at our earliest convenience.

RE-ENTERING SATELLITE ABOVE THE PACIFIC COAST, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 22ND, 2015

We are grateful to all those individuals in California, Nevada, and Utah for the reports they submitted about the dramatic “fireball,” which was seen streaking over California at approximately 6:05 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time), on Tuesday night, December 22nd, 2015.  Thanks to the fine work of Mr. Ted Molczan, an amateur satellite “tracker,” based in Canada, we now know that the object was a returning piece of space debris.  Several people captured the object on video.  With Mr. Molczan’s permission, we post below his January 04, 2016,message to NUFORC:

BEGIN COPIED E-MAIL, SUBMITTED BY MR. TED MOLCZAN, AMATEUR SATELLITE RESEARCHER

Happy New Year, Peter!

There were numerous reports and videos of sightings from California, Nevada, and Arizona, of the re-entry of 2015-080B/41178, on 2015 Dec 23, near 02:10 UTC (Dec 22 18:10 PST).  It was the rocket body of the recent launch of Progress MS-01.  It was the model 11S510, which has an empty mass of 2410 kg.

Two of the many videos:

The AMS received 59 fireball report:

http://www.amsmeteors.org/members/imo_view/event/2015/4097

If you received reports from Thailand and neighboring countries, of a meteor-like object seen on Jan 2, just before dawn (6:36 AM), that was the re-entry of 2015-074C / 41107, which was the second stage of the Zenit-2SB rocket, that launched Russia's Elecktro-L 2 satellite. Its empty mass was 8900 kg.

Best regards,

Ted Molczan

END COPIED E-MAIL

We express our gratitude to Mr. Molczan, and to the other volunteers with whom he works to provide accurate data about satellites and re-entering space debris.

REPORTS OF “FIREBALLS” CONTINUE INTO THE 2016

For more than a decade, our Center has attempted to call to the attention of the public the frequent reports of clusters of red, orange, and yellow fireballs…a phenomenon which appears to us to have suddenly increased in magnitude, beginning in approximately late May 2012.  If anything, the frequency of such reports has increased over the last 3-4 years, and the approximately 289 new reports we post, as of this date, appear to be evidence of that fact.    

We have not counted the reports in this posting that allude to these colorful “orbs” or “fireballs,” but we estimate that type of report constitutes easily half of the reports for the last two months, and we believe ranges to as high as 70-80 percent of them.  What makes the reports of keen interest to NUFORC, and to other UFO organizations, as well, is that no one understands what the fireballs are, or where they come from.  The only possible prosaic explanation we can imagine is that the objects are so-called “Chinese” lanterns, but in many cases, the objects are reported to be “drifting” in a direction that is counter to that of the prevailing local wind at altitude.  If that is the case, then the objects are self-propelled, which rules out the possibility that they could be lanterns.

For the interest of visitors to our website, we feature below several examples of the fireball reports:

·         Spring Hill, Tennessee, Saturday, January 2nd, 2016, @ 9:30 p.m. (local)—A women witnesses, and video tapes, a cluster of orange lights seen hovering above her apartment building.  Witness Report   If you watch the following videos, and find profanity-laced descriptions of the objects, please turn off the sound on your computer  Witness Video 1    Witness Video 2

·         Abbotsford, Canada, Thursday, December 31, 2015, @ 8:30 p.m. (Pacific)—A Canadian air traffic controller witnesses 10-15 distinctly yellow fireballs move slowly across the southern nighttime sky.  He estimated that they were in the vicinity of Bellingham, Washington State, but he could not be certain of their distance from his vantage point.  In a telephone conversation with NUFORC on January 05th, 2016, the witness averred that the objects might have been “sky” lanterns, released at a celebration, but that he had no objective data as to their nature.    

·         Bear, Delaware, Sunday, December 20, 2015, @ 9:45 p.m. (Eastern)—An adult male witnesses, and captures on video tape, approximately 20 red “fireballs” move across the nighttime sky.  One of the fireballs is alleged by the witness to have moved across the sky at a velocity significantly higher than that of the other objects.   Witness Report    Witness Photo

We will feature more of reports of these strange “fireballs,” when we update the NUFORC website later this week. 

Posted on Tuesday night, January 05th, 2016. 


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED MONDAY, DECEMBER 21ST, 2015

We have updated the NUFORC website, as of this date, with the posting of approximately 50 newly received reports.  We have attempted to proof-read the reports thoroughly, but there is always the possibility that the reports may contain errors, or may be hoaxes that we have not detected.  Hence, be on the alert for errors, as you read through the posted material.

HOLIDAY SCHEDULE

Peter Davenport, Center Director, will be out of town for the next several days over the Christmas Holiday.  Hence, he will not be available to answer the Hotline [(206) 722-3000] until his return, a few days after Christmas.  Consequently, we would be most grateful if people would refrain from telephoning the Hotline, except for the most urgent purposes.  Peter will monitor the Hotline remotely, and will return calls, if possible, as he travels, but it may take several days for him to return calls. 

RADIO APPEARANCE ON CHRISTMAS EVE

Peter is scheduled to make a brief appearance on Coast to Coast AM, hosted by George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on Christmas Eve, December 24th.  Peter will be broadcasting from North Pole, Alaska, where he will be monitoring the Santa Claus residence and workshop for any unusual activity…

Posted on Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015.  Our next update will occur on approximately December 30th


NUFORC HOMEPAGE UPDATED ON THURSDAY, DECEMBER 17, 2015

We have posted to our database of eyewitness reports 111 new, and recently amended, sighting reports, received since Thursday of last week, December 10th, 2015.  As visitors to our site read the reports, we request that they keep on the alert for defective or hoaxed reports.  If you find what you believe is an error, or a hoaxed report, please send a not to director@ufocenter.com, and we will address the issue as quickly as we can.

RADIO APPEARANCE

Peter Davenport, Center Director, is scheduled to appear on the Coast to Coast AM radio program, hosted by George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. on Thursday, December 17th, 2015.  Peter will discuss some of the recent cases that have been submitted to NUFORC over the past week.  We include below a report that arrived, just as we were updating of the website, which Peter will discuss during his appearance on the program:

Date:  12/17/15

Time:  18:50

Duration:  7 minutes

Sighting City:  Madison

Sighting State:  Mississippi

Sighting Zip:  39110

Sighting County:  Madison

Witnesses:  4

Shape: Sphere

Number of Craft: 6

 

190 Description: The lead mechanic for ((deleted—an aviation company)) in Madison, MS, came inside the FBO and requested that all the employees on staff step outside to witness the objects.

 

We initially saw five, red, spherical objects in the western sky, traveling southbound at a rapid but steady pace. (The objects were approximately two hand widths vertical distance from ground level). The red light on the objects was not blinking.  

 

All of the objects began to disappear (their red lights faded slowly, as if burning out) once they all reached the same point in the sky.  

 

A sixth and final object emerged, appearing to lag behind the initial objects but heading in the same direction and traveling at the same approximate speed.  It, too, disappeared once it reached the same point in the sky.  

 

The entire event lasted between four and seven minutes.  The sighting was witnessed at an airport by personnel who have had numerous years in and around aircraft.  This was not typical aircraft behavior.

 

Lights On Object: Yes

Also, Peter is scheduled to make an appearance on Coast to Coast AM again, next Thursday, December 24th, and will be broadcasting from NORTH POLE, ALASKA!  Peter plans to monitor very closely Santa’s Workshop, located in North Pole, and expects to report any activity that may be seen to occur there on Christmas Eve… Young children who are up late, and who may be anticipating the arrival of Santa Claus, are encouraged to tune in to the program!

We will post again next Monday night. 

Posted on Thursday evening, December 17th, 2015. 


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON THURSDAY, DECEMBER 10TH, 2015

We have posted 99 new, and newly revised, reports, received since the evening of December 4th

We have proof-read the reports to the best of our ability, but there may still be errors in the new reports, so we always encourage visitors to our site to be on the lookout for flawed reports and possible hoaxes.  Also, be alert for reports of the three bright planets in the eastern morning sky, and for sightings of the star, Sirius, in the southeast sky, beginning in the late evening, and continuing until morning.

RADIO APPEARANCES

Peter Davenport will make his weekly appearance on the Coast to Coast AM radio program, hosted by George Noory, on Thursday, December 10th, 2015, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific).  Peter will discuss several of the more interesting and dramatic sightings that have occurred over the past week.

Peter will appear on the Jeff Rense Radio Program on Friday night, December 11th, at from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (Pacific).  Jeff and Peter will host several sets of guests who were witness to the dramatic events that were reported from the Pacific Northwest, and from other states, during the evening of Friday, December 4th, 2015.  Written reports for many of the telephoned reports are among those we have posted to our website, with this posting.

We will update our website again next week.

NUFORC UPDATES HOMEPAGE, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 04, 2015

We updated the website yesterday, December 03rd, but, in part, because there were some errors and omissions in that earlier posting, we have elected to update again today.   We have posted approximately 20 new sighting reports, submitted since yesterday, and approximately 40 older reports that have been more extensively proof-read and revised during that same time period.    

RADIO APPEARANCE

Peter is scheduled to appear with the program host, George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on Friday, December 4th.  The program can be accessed across the U. S. on major AM radio stations.  Peter will discuss a few of the more interesting recent sighting reports, to include those which are featured below:

·         Copperas Cove, Texas, Thursday, December 03, 2015, @ 20:10 hrs. (Central)—An adult female, driving north on Texas Highway 116, witnesses an orange light in the eastern sky, which appears to split into at least three similar looking objects.  She continued to watch the objects, and others, maneuver in the night sky for at least another 20 minutes.  Witness Report

·         Edgewood, New Mexico, Thursday, December 03, 2015, @ 17:45 hrs. (Mountain)—An adult female, driving east on Interstate 40, witnessed a very bright ball of light streak from the eastern sky, to the northeastern sky, in approximately 3 seconds.  Her family members reported hearing sonic reports in Edgewood.  Witness Report

We will update the site with more reports and illustrations during the upcoming week. 

Statement posted on Friday evening, December 04th 2015.


NUFORC WEBSITE IS UPDATED ON THURSDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 03RD, 2015

We have updated the website, with the posting of approximately 95 newly received eyewitness reports, plus approximately 40 amended reports. 

As you read the recent reports, please be on the lookout for flawed, or hoaxed, reports.  Most of the reports that we consider to be something other than serious reports we have not posted, with a few exceptions of properly qualified and labelled examples.  However, there is always the possibility that we may have missed some flawed reports, in our haste to proof-read and post the new cases.  Consequently, there may be some in the database that have escaped our attention.  If you find what you believe to be a flawed report, please call it to our attention by sending a note to director@ufocenter.com, and we will address the issue as quickly as possible.

REPORTS OF THE MORNING PLANETS, AND OF “SIRIUS” IN THE LATE EVENING SKY

Our Center is receiving many reports of the three bright planets, which currently are visible in the early morning eastern sky.  Many of the reports we have posted, as an example of what people are seeing, and reporting.  Please refrain from reporting these three bright objects in the morning sky!  They are planets, and not alien spacecraft!! 

Also, as the northern hemisphere gets deeper into the winter months, the very bright star, called “Sirius,” or the “Dog Star,” is becoming visible ever earlier in the southeastern sky during the mid- and late part of the evening.  It gives off a vividly bright chromatic display, principally red, blue, and green light, but it, like the morning planets, is not a genuine UFO.  Hence, please refrain from reporting it to our Center!  All of these reports of planets and of “twinkling” stars are taking a great deal of our time, and they have become a burden. 

RADIO APPEARANCE

Peter Davenport will make his weekly appearance on Coast to Coast AM with its host, George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on Firday night, December 4th, 2015.  Peter will discuss several recent cases. 

“FIREBALL” REPORTS

This is a phenomenon that we have been attempting to bring to the attention of the world community, and the reports appear not to be diminishing in frequency.  We received a very nice report from the Missouri Investigators Group, based in Columbia, Missouri, of a sighting of just one of these events, which occurred at 5:52 p.m. (Central) on November 23RD, 2015, and which we would like to feature here.  Witness Report   Photo 1   Photo 2.   We express our gratitude to the Missouri Investigators Group for sharing the case and the photos!

Statement posted on Thursday night, December 03rd, 2015. 


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON THANKSGIVING DAY, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2015. 

We have updated the website and database of sighting reports as of November 26, 2015.  Please be on the lookout for errors and flawed reports, given that our vacation schedule has provided us with only limited time for proof-reading.  We suspect that there probably are a number of errors, and cases of mistaken identity, among the reports we have posted today.

RADIO PROGRAM

Peter Davenport will make his weekly appearance on the Coast to Coast AM radio program, hosted by George Noory, on Thursday night, November 26th, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific).  Peter will discuss some of the more interesting cases that have been submitted recently.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish all the visitors to our website a Happy Thanksgiving, with hopes that everyone is able to enjoy the day with family and friends! 

Posted on Thursday morning, November 26th, 2015. 


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED AGAIN ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2015

We updated the website yesterday, November 19, and we do so again today, in preparation for Peter’s appearance on the Jeff Rense Radio Program, beginning at 7:00 p.m. (Pacific) on Friday night, November 20th, 2015.  Peter and Jeff will host three sets of guests, whose written sighting reports can be accessed from the links below:

·         Harmonyville, Pennsylvania, on Monday, November 16, 2015, @ 19:30 hrs. (EST)—A husband and wife witness a cluster of approximately 11 orange lights, moving across the sky from northwest to southeast.  The husband is a licensed private pilot, and states that he’s never seen anything like what the two of them saw.  The witnesses have provided two photographs, taken from the internet, which they report are very similar to what they witnessed.  A close up is shown to the right and a full shot can be seen here.   Witness Report

·         Tucson, Arizona, on Tuesday, November 17, 2015, @ 20:50 hrs. (MST)—An adult male witnesses a dramatic display of “square” yellow/orange lights in the western sky. Witness Report

·         Mitchell, South Dakota, on October 23, 2013, @ 20:50 hrs. —A husband and wife witness a strange light above the interstate highway, which alarms them.  Later that evening, they witness a similar light above their farm, which splits into two separate lights.  Witness Report

Statement posted Friday afternoon, November 20th, 2015.


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON THURSDAY NIGHT, NOVEMBER 19, 2015

e have updated our website, with the posting of approximately 460 new, and newly amended, sighting reports, received since November 07th.  As visitors to our website read the reports, we encourage them to be on the lookout for errors and hoaxed reports, and for cases of obvious misidentification of celestial bodies.

The majority of the new reports are descriptions of the very dramatic missile launch that occurred off the coast of California at approximately 6:00 p.m. (Pacific) on Saturday night, November 07th, 2015.  Even though the event clearly was not related to a UFO sighting, we decided to post those reports, nevertheless, in order to illustrate the diversity of reports that were submitted in response to the same event. 

Although most witnesses to the event did a commendable job of reporting the event accurately, many entered the wrong date and time, the direction the witnesses were facing (west), the direction the missile was traveling (north), and even the color of the exhaust (white, then blue-green).  The event serves to illustrate the difficulty that UFO investigators have in their attempt to obtain accurate and reliable data from eyewitnesses, and how crucially important it is for eyewitnesses to record their respective sightings accurately, in order that another person will be able to understand clearly what an object or event looked like, as it was observed by the initial witness(es).

RADIO APPEARANCES

Peter Davenport, Director of NUFORC, will make his weekly appearance on Coast to Coast AM, hosted by George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on Thursday night, November 19th, 2015.  Peter will discuss several recent reports, to include sighting in North Dakota, Oklahoma, and Missouri.

Peter is scheduled to appear on the Jeff Rense radio program at 7:00-9:00 p.m. (Pacific) on Friday, November 20, 2015.  Jeff and Peter will host a number of witnesses to sightings that have occurred over the last month. 

We will update our site again soon, probably at some time over the upcoming weekend, to include illustrations and photos that have been submitted to NUFORC, in support of written reports. 


NUFORC WEBSITE PARTIALLY UPDATED ON THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2015

In preparation for a radio appearance on Thursday evening, November 12th, we have updated our website with the posting of approximately 130 eyewitness reports, received since November 6th, 2015.  However, those 130 reports represent only approximately one quarter of the unusually large number of reports we have received over the past week, a result principally of the launch of an ICBM missile off the coast of California by the U. S. Navy submarine, the USS Kentucky, on Saturday night, November 07th, 2015, at approximately 5:55 p.m. (Pacific).  The remainder of the reports will be posted within the next 1-2 days, as soon as we are able to proof-read them.

Because we’ve performed a relatively hasty job of proof-reading the posted reports, it is particularly important the visitors to our website be on the alert for flawed or misleading reports.  If you encounter a report that you believe may be flawed, please send a note to director@ufocenter.com, and we will re-examine the report for accuracy.

RADIO APPEARANCE

Peter Davenport, Director of NUFORC, will make his weekly appearance on the radio program, Coast to Coast AM, hosted by George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on Thursday night, November 12th, 2015.  The program is carried by most major AM stations across the U. S.  Some of the reports that Peter may address during tonight’s program include the following:

·         California (Pacific Ocean), Saturday, November 07th, 2015, @~5:55 p.m.—Seemingly reliable news reports have confirmed the fact that a U. S. Navy submarine, reportedly the USS Kentucky, conducted a test firing of an ICBM missile off the coast of California.  We have posted perhaps 50 or 100 of the approximately 250-300 written reports we have received about that event.  In March 1998, our Center received approximately 30 reports of another submarine ICBM launch off the east coast of Florida that took place on Saturday, the 07th of that month.  In that instance, two missiles were fired in rapid sequence, and both were visible simultaneously in the night sky.  Those earlier reports can be accessed among the reports for March 1998

·         Tucson, Arizona, Friday, March 14, 1997, @ ~1:10 a.m. (local)—Approximately 3-4 hours after the so-called “Phoenix Lights” sightings had ended, an adult male witnesses in his front yard a tall, bipedal, human-like creature, with a large head, which approaches, and attempts to enter, the witness’s home.  The creature then jumps over a nearby fence, and disappears in the night.  The witness reports that shortly after watching the creature leave his yard, he witnessed a disc rise out from a nearby field and pass close to his home. Witness Report

·         Odessa, Washington, March 17, 1969, @ ~8:00 p.m..—We alluded to this report in our posting on November 06th, but we have received the illustration below and a hand-drawn map from the witness..   

S123342A

We will update the website again within the next several days.

Posted Thursday evening, November 12, 2015.


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 06, 2015

The NUFORC website has been updated as of Friday, November 06, 2015, with the posting of 192 sighting reports, received since the afternoon of Thursday, October 29th.

We have proof-read the reports as carefully as our time has allowed, but there is always the possibility that errors and flawed reports may have slipped through our screening process.  Consequently, we urge visitors to our website to be on the alert for possible flaws, as they read through the reports.

RADIO APPEARANCE ON NOVEMBER 06, 2015

Peter Davenport, Center Director, will make his weekly appearance on Coast to Coast AM, hosted by Mr. George Noory, on Friday evening, November 06th, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific Time Zone).  Some of the reports that Peter will discuss are the following:

·         Odessa, Washington, Monday, March 17, 1969, @ ~20:00 hrs. (Pacific)—A large number of people at a birthday party witness a very large metallic looking, disc-shaped object hover over several local houses, including the home where the birthday celebration was taking place.  Some of the attendees decided to follow the object, and they saw it land in a local field.  Witness Report

·         Portland, Tennessee, Tuesday, November 03, 2015, @ 18:40 hrs. (Central)—An adult male, who describes himself as being former military, at one time attached to military Special Operations commands, reports witnessing a dull gray, triangular craft, that seemed to respond to the presence of the witnesses, who flashed their automobile headlights at it.  The object suddenly accelerated and streaked off in the night sky, as two what appeared to be military F-18 fighter aircraft approached the area, apparently which were flying directly toward the object.  Witness Report

COMMENT ABOUT THE THREE PLANETS CURRENTLY VISIBLE IN THE MORNING SKY—Many people have reported witnessing the three bright objects in the early morning eastern sky, and many have questioned whether they are, in fact, planets.  Hence, we provide below a short video, available through NASA Science News, which addresses the dramatic display of Venus, Jupiter, and Mars, visible from as early as 2:00 a.m., to as late as sunrise.  We hope that this will resolve the issue of what the three bright objects are.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCuQXGCuiPo&feature=youtu.be 

We will update the NUFORC website within the next several days.

Posted Friday night, November 06, 2015. 


NUFORC HOMEPAGE UPDATED ON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2015

We have updated our website, with the posting of approximately 300 new, or newly revised, sighting reports, received since the afternoon of Friday, October 16th.  All of the new reports have been proof-read, to at least a limited degree, but please be on the lookout for errors, in particular with regard to dates and times listed for the sightings. 

Also, we receive many reports from individuals who wish to remain totally anonymous, and who provide no contact information, something which always raises questions about a case.  Consequently, we encourage visitors to our site to maintain a certain degree of skepticism over those reports, which are “flagged” with comments from the proofreader. 

PUBLIC PRESENTATION BY PETER DAVENPORT

Peter has been invited by the Harrington, Washington, Public Development Authority to give a benefit presentation about his work in the field of ufology.  The presentation is open to the public, and will be held at 7:00 p.m. (Pacific) on Friday night, October 30th, 2015, in the upstairs of the remodeled Harrington Opera House in downtown Harrington.  Donations to the HPDA may be made during the presentation.  More details are available on the Harrington, Washington, website.  Peter will hand out material to attendees, one of which is this informal “short list” summary of some of the more interesting cases he has processed during his tenure as Director of the National UFO Reporting Center. 

RADIO APPEARANCE

Peter Davenport is scheduled to make his weekly appearance on Coast to Coast AM, hosted by Mr. George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m., Thursday, October 29th, 2015.  Peter will discuss some of the more interesting cases that have been submitted over the last week.  One of the cases he will discuss is a report submitted by a former fighter pilot, who experienced a very interesting interaction in 1959 with a strange object over West Germany, while flying an F-86 “D” on a routine patrol in 1959.  His report can be read here.

We will update our site, to include some interesting photos and videos, in the next several days.

Posted on Thursday afternoon, October 29th, 2015.


NUFORC HOMEPAGE UPDATED ON FRIDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 16, 2015

We have updated our website, with the posting of 186 new sighting reports, received by our Center since the afternoon of October 09th.  Please bear in mind that those reports 

We always recommend that people be alert to the possibility that a report may be flawed, or it possibly may be an out-and-out hoax.  Flaws to be on the lookout for, in particular, are errors in the date and time of a sighting, given that many people fail to note that the date changes at midnight.  Also, some of the reports, which indicate an time in the early morning, may be of the three prominent planets, Venus, Jupiter, and Mars, which currently are quite prominent in that part of the sky, until sunrise.

RADIO APPEARANCE

Peter Davenport, Center Director, is scheduled to make his weekly appearance on Coast to Coast AM radio program, hosted by George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on Friday night, October 16, 2015.  The program is accessible in most areas of the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia, over major AM radio stations.  Peter will discuss some of the most interesting cases that have been submitted to our Center in the recent past, to include a few reports of sightings for the evening of Friday, October 16.

PHOTOS AND VIDEOS

We have received a number of interesting photos and videos recently, and we will post a few of them when we next update the website.

Posted on Friday evening, October 16, 2015.


NUFORC HOMEPAGE UPDATED ON FRIDAY, OCTOBER 09TH, 2015

Our website has been updated today, with the posting of 151 new sighting report, received by our Center since October 2nd

As you read the reports, please be on the lookout for flawed reports.  If you encounter a report which you believe may be flawed, or which may be a hoax, or a description of a prosaic terrestrial event, please call it to our attention by sending a message to director@ufocenter.com.  We will address the issue, at our earliest convenience.

RADIO APPEARANCES

Peter Davenport will make his monthly appearance on the Jeff Rense radio program on Friday night, October 09th, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. (Pacific).  Jeff and Peter will host at least two sets of guests, who experienced sightings of unusual objects in both Fresno and Martinez, California, on Thursday, October 08th, 2015.  Their reports are linked to below:

·         Fresno, California, Thursday, October 09, 2015, @ 1005 hrs. (PDT)—A husband and wife witness an estimated 30-40 peculiar looking, “dark” objects hovering in the vicinity of the Fresno-Yosemite Airport.  The husband is former military, and a long-time public employee.  The objects were visible for only an estimated 20 seconds.  Husband’s Report    Wife’s Report    Witness Illustration

·         Martinez, California, Thursday, October 09, 2015, @ 2300 hrs. (PDT)—Two adults, a male and a female, report having witnessed a huge, triangular-shaped craft, which “blotted out” the sky above their heads.  The male witness is a former member of the Civil Air Patrol, and also was a member of “NICAP,” a UFO investigative organization.  Witness Report

Peter also is scheduled to make his weekly appearance on Coast to Coast AM, hosted by George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on Friday night, October 09th.  Peter will discuss several of the most interesting recent sightings.

We will update the website again in the next several days. 

Posted on Friday afternoon, October 09th, 2015. 


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON FRIDAY, OCTOBER 02, 2015

Following shortly after our website update on September 29th, we have posted another 67 newly submitted reports. 

Included in the reports we post as of today’s date are a number of sighting reports from the evening of Sunday, September 27th, which occurred during the lunar eclipse of that date, and which initially were posted with times indicating sightings during morning hours.  Our Center continues to receive intriguing reports of sightings that allegedly occurred during the lunar eclipse, and we would welcome any additional reports from witnesses to similar events in the U. S., and around the globe, for that date.

RADIO APPEARANCE ON OCTOBER 02ND, 2015

Peter Davenport, Center Director, is scheduled to appear on the Coast to Coast AM radio program, hosted by Mr. George Noory, to give and update of some of the more interesting cases that have been submitted to NUFORC since the afternoon of September 24th.  We feature, and link to, some of those reports below, which Peter may touch on during his 3-4 minute interview:

·         Austin, Texas, on Friday, October 02nd, 2015, @ 0436 hrs. (CDT)—An adult male reports that as he was driving to work, the engine of his vehicle stopped, and all the lights on his instrument panel extinguished.  The driver became aware of a very bright light, “many times the size of a full Moon,” which he photographs.  After the object disappeared the witness was able to start his vehicle.  Witness Report   Photo

·         Henderson, Nevada, Monday, September 28th, 2015, @ 2317 hrs. (MDT)—An adult female, who describes herself as a helicopter pilot, reports witnessing a V-shaped/triangular object streak across the nighttime sky.  Witness Report

·         Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Monday, September 28, 2015, @ 2020 hrs. (EDT)—An adult female reports witnessing approximately 10 orange lights, as they drift from south to north in the western sky.  Witness Report    Video 1    Video 2

·         Glen Ellyn, Illinois, on Friday, September 25, 2015, @ 2010 hrs. (CDT)—Three family members allegedly witness a cluster of an estimated 10-20 orange lights move across the night sky, and disappear from their sight after approximately 5 minutes.  Witness Report    Photo 1   Photo 2

Posted Friday night, October 02nd, 2015. 


RADIO APPEARANCE

Peter Davenport, Center Director, is scheduled to appear on the Jeff Rense Radio Program on Tuesday night, September 29th, 2015, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (Pacific).  Jeff and Peter will host one guest, who, together with his wife, experienced a quite dramatic sighting of an object over Paso Robles, California, as they were outside to view the eclipse of the so-called “blood” Moon on Sunday night, September 27th.

We have posted approximately 135 new written reports, received by NUFORC since September 24th.  As visitors to our website read the reports, we ask that they keep alert for flawed reports.  We already know that there are several reports for the evening of September 27th which have defective times, indicating morning sightings, when in fact the sightings occurred during evening hours.  Those flawed times will be corrected the next time we update our website.  In the meantime, if a sighting occurred during the evening eclipse of the Moon, obviously it was an evening sighting.

We probably will update the website again later this week. 

Posted Tuesday afternoon, September 29, 2015.


NUFORC SITE UPDATED ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2015

We have updated our website, with the posting of approximately 190 recently received reports.  We ask visitors to our site who read the reports to be on the lookout for flawed reports and hoaxes.  If you find what you believe to be a defective report, please send a note to director@ufocenter.com, and we will look into the matter, at our earliest convenience.  Thank you!

FREQUENT REPORTS OF VENUS

Over the last several weeks, we have received many reports of the very bright object that is visible in the eastern, or southeastern, sky during the early morning hours.  It is so bright that it apparently draws people’s attention, the moment they witness it, and atmospheric conditions can make the object appear to move and change color.  However, the object is the planet, Venus, and it is not a UFO.  We post this statement, hoping to reduce the number of telephone calls we receive over our Hotline, and the number of written reports, submitted using our report form. 

REPORTS OF CLUSTERS OF RED AND ORANGE LIGHTS CONTINUE

For probably a decade or more, our Center has been attempting to call to the attention of the public the fact that sightings of clusters of red, orange, and yellow “orbs,” or “fireballs,” have not only been occurring regularly, but actually increasing in frequency.  The recent posting of new reports appears to be no exception to this trend, and the phenomenon continues to attract our attention. 

For the benefit of those visiting our site, we highlight below a few of the many “fireball” reports that we have received over the last week, and which we find to be particularly interesting:

·         Burien, Washington, Thursday, September 24, 2015, @ 2045 hrs. (PDT)  Witness Report

·         Mountain Home, Idaho, Thursday, September 24, 2015, @ 2045 hrs. (MDT)  Witness Report

·         Panama City Beach, Florida, Thursday, September 24, 2015, @ 1930 hrs. (EDT)  Witness Report

·         Fall River, Massachusetts, Wednesday, September 23, 2015, @ 2010 hrs. (EDT)  Witness Report

·         Oxfordshire, England, Thursday, September 17, 2015, @ 2110 hrs. (Local)  Witness Report

The National UFO Reporting Center is very interested in these “fireball” events, and we would like to invite everyone who has witnessed one of these events to report the sighting, using our Online Report Form.  

We will update the website again within the next several days, and will attempt to post a few photos of “fireball” sightings that have been submitted recently, and which we have not already posted.  

Posted Friday evening, September 25, 2015.


Peter Davenport, Center Director, will be out of town for the next 4-5 days.  Hence, we would like to request that people call the Hotline only for emergency purposes.    Peter will attempt to monitor the Hotline once or twice a day, but he may not be able to return calls as quickly as callers would like to be the case.  Consequently, we would request that people submit detailed, objective, written descriptions of their sightings, using our Online Report Form, found elsewhere on this website.

NUFORC HOMEPAGE UPDATED ON THURSDAY NIGHT, SEPTEMBER 17, 2015

We have updated the homepage, as of this date, with the posting of approximately 156 new sighting reports, received since the afternoon of September 11th.  Because we are under time pressure on the posting date, we have done what we suspect is a slip-shod job of proofreading the new reports, so we encourage visitors to our website to be unusually alert to errors and hoaxed reports. 

RADIO APPEARANCE

Peter will make his weekly appearance on the Coast to Coast AM radio program, hosted by Mr. George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific), on Thursday night, September 17, 2015.  Peter will discuss several interesting recent reports, to include several of those that we have posted tonight.

Statement posted Thursday night, September 17, 2015. 


NUFORC HOMEPAGE UPDATED ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2015

The NUFORC website has been updated, with the posting of 212 new entries in our database of sighting reports.  We encourage visitors to the site to be on the lookout for flawed reports and hoaxes.  If you encounter a report that looks out of place, or which appears to contain errors, please call the report to our attention by sending a note to director@ufocenter.com, and we will address the issue at our earliest convenience.

RADIO APPEARANCE

Peter Davenport, Director, is scheduled to make his weekly appearance on Coast to Coast AM (hosted by George Noory, at 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on Friday night, September 11, 2015.  Some of the reports that Peter will discuss appear below:

·         Ashland, Oregon, Saturday, September 05th, 2015, @ 2330 hrs. (PDT)—During their third night of camping out in their family yard, two young boys suddenly become alert to the fact that there is an intensely bright, pulsating, source of light above them, and illuminating their tent.  They peek outside, and apparently are seriously frightened to witness a brightly illuminated disc-shaped object above them.  They race inside the house and alert their father to the event.  Witness Report

·         Gibbon, Minnesota, Sunday, September 06th, 2015, @ 2100 hrs. (CDT)—A husband and wife, out walking their dogs, become aware of a thin, dark object, which appeared to be located between them and a distant lightning storm.  They quickly realize that it appears to be getting smaller, suggesting to them that it was moving almost directly away from them.  The object appeared to move slowly into the mass of storm clouds.  Husband’s Report    Wife’s Report

·         Mayflower, Arkansas, Thursday, September 10th, 2015, @ 2021 hrs. (CDT)—Three adults witness a very bright white light move across the night sky, make several abrupt maneuvers, and then stop motionless in the night sky.  The object appeared to display a complex pattern of blue and white lights.  The witness reports that the power in the town of Mayflower was temporarily interrupted, until the object flew off and disappeared from sight, approximately 2 minutes later.  Witness Report

We also would like to encourage visitors to our site to read the many reports posted for September 05th and 06th, 2015.  NUFORC received 73 written reports for those two days.  Many of those reports describe clusters of red and orange lights, which NUFORC has been reporting on for many years.  This photo, taken over Mt. Washington, Kentucky, on the night of August 13, 2015, is exemplary of the many such reports our Center has received.

ufoNUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2ND, 2015

We have updated our website, with the posting of 100 new sighting reports, received since Thursday, August 28th, 2015. 

As visitors to our site read the new reports, we recommend that they be on the alert for reports that appear to be flawed, or which may be outright hoaxes.  We have proof-read the reports as carefully as we can, but there is always the possibility that flaws have escaped out attention.

We feature below a few of the reports that capture our interest, and to which we would like to call special attention:

·         Oil City, Pennsylvania, Tuesday, September 01st, 2015, @ 2000 hrs. (EDT) - Two adult witnesses observe a peculiar-looking craft, seen maneuvering in the nighttime sky.  The object is reported to have had both red and blue lights on it.  Witness Report   The witness also drew the picture to the right.

·         Hicksville, New York, Monday, August 31st, 2015, @ 2025 hrs. (EDT) - Two witnesses observe a cluster of at least 8-10 peculiar, orange-colored, lights, seen moving slowly, and silently, across the night sky.  This sighting is exemplary of the many such reports, i.e. clusters of red, orange, and yellow “orbs,” that have been submitted to NUFORC since May 2012.  Witness Report   Photograph

NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 25TH, 2015

We have updated the NUFORC website with the posting of 294 new reports, received since early on Thursday, August 13, 2015.  As visitors read the reports, we encourage them to be on the look-out for flawed reports and pranks.

UPDATE OF THE MINNEAPOLIS, MN, CASE

We express our gratitude to the many individuals, who helped us solve the case of the “ring of lights,” which we featured in our posting of August 13, 2015.  The PalmSpringsCA-69624lights do, indeed, appear to be the result of an advertising display of lights, projected into the nighttime sky, by a local casino.  It is surprising to us that we had not received reports prior to August 09th, given that some witnesses claimed that they had been projected from that casino since long before NUFORC had received its first report about the display.

RADIO APPEARANCE

Peter Davenport will make his weekly appearance on Coast to Coast AM, hosted by Mr. George Noory, on Thursday night, August 27th.  His 3-4 minute long summary of a few recent cases WP_20150823_012usually begins at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific).  Some of the cases that Peter will discuss are summarized below: 

·         Palm Springs, California, Wednesday, August 20th, 2015, @ 2125 hrs. (PDT)—A single witness reports observing a crescent-shaped object fly overhead at a very high speed. Witness Report   See upper image at right.

·         Brandon, Florida, Sunday, August 23rd, 2015, @ 2040 hrs. (EDT)—A woman reports witnessing a pulsing yellow object outside her bedroom window.  Witness Report   See lower image at right.

·         Kaukauna, Wisconsin, Saturday, August 22, 2015, @ 2030 hrs. (CDT)—An adult female witness reports that she, her husband, her father, and apparently their dog, heard three bursts of intensely loud sound being broadcast from somewhere above them in the nighttime sky.  Witness Report

·         Alexandria, Virginia, Monday, August 24th, 2015, @ 0330 hrs. (EDT)—Two witnesses are awakened by a peculiar buzzing sound, which seemed to be being broadcast from the sky above them.  The sound slowly moved away. Witness Report

Posted on Thursday evening, August 27th, 2015. 


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 13, 2015

We have posted 168 new reports, received since August 7th, 2015.  We have proof-read the new cases to the best of our ability, but please be on the lookout for S121024_Smallerrors, and flawed reports.

Peter Davenport, Center Director, will be out of town for several days, beginning Thursday, August 13, but will monitor the UFO Hotline, while traveling.  He may not be able to return your message immediately, but will attempt to call, at his earliest convenience.   

If you believe you have had a sighting of a UFO, we would like to invite you to submit a written report, using our Online Report Form.

RADIO APPEARANCE

Peter will appear on Coast to Coast AM, hosted by George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific Daylight Time), on Thursday, August 13, 2015.  Two of the reports that Peter will discuss are the following:

·         Minneapolis, Minnesota, Sunday, August 09th, 2015, @ 22:30 hrs. (Central)—Multiple witnesses observe a peculiar ring of lights, which hovered in the nighttime sky for up to an hour.  At least one witness reports that the lights were visible for up to an hour.  We wonder whether the formation might have been advertising lights, but some witnesses reported that some of the lights disappeared before the rest of them did, which seems to us to militate against their being part of an advertising display.  We would like to invite anyone who witnessed the formation of lights, or anyone who knows what the cause of them was, to submit a report, using our Online Report Form.   Witness Report 1   Witness Report 2   Witness Report 3   Witness Report 4   Witness Report 5      Hi Res Photo 1    Hi Res Photo 2

·         Hartford, Alabama, Monday, August 10th, 2015, @ 1913 hours (Eastern)—A man and wife witness three triangular craft, apparently pursuing a large transport aircraft.  Witness Report

NUFORC HOMEPAGE UPDATED ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 6TH, 2015

We have updated the website with the posting of 148 new reports, submitted to our Center since July 31st

When reading the newly posted reports, please be on the lookout for errors and flawed reports.  We proofread all the reports before we post them, but there is always the possibility that we may have overlooked errors and hoaxed reports.  If you encounter what you believe may be an error, please forward the information to director@ufocenter.com, and we will address the issue at our earliest convenience.

RADIO APPEARANCES

Peter Davenport will make his weekly appearance on Coast to Coast AM, hosted by George Noory, on Thursday, August 6th, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific Daylight Time).  Peter will discuss several of the most interesting of the newly posted reports.

Peter will also make his monthly appearance on the Jeff Rense Radio Program on Friday night, August 7th, at from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (Pacific Daylight Time).  Jeff and Peter will host Scott and Suzanne Ramsey, as well as Dr. Frank Thayer, all three who co-authored “The Aztec Incident:  Recovery at Hart Canyon,” (Aztec.48 Productions, 2011), and who recently have co-authored a sequel to that first volume.  Their work focuses on the crash, and recovery by the U. S. Government, of a large, 100-foot diameter, metallic disc, which came to rest atop a mesa near Aztec, New Mexico, on March 25, 1948.

·         Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Friday, July 24th, 2015, @ 0505 hrs. (CDT)—An adult male witnesses a very peculiar “fan-shaped” object in the morning sky, which appeared in the morning sky only briefly.  During the short sighting, the object was seen to spread the top portion of the object, and then suddenly “snap” closed.  The witness reports that he felt “humbled” by what he had just seen.    Witness Report

·         East Providence, Rhode Island, Saturday, July 25th, 2015, @ 0048 hrs. (EDT)—An airline pilot reports having witnessed an object hovering motionless in the early morning sky, with strobing red and blue lights.  The object starts moving very abruptly, and then descends quite suddenly, and almost vertically.  Witness Report

Posted on Friday evening, July 31st, 2015. 


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON THURSDAY, JULY 23RD, 2015

Our website has been updated, as of July 23rd, with the posting of 122 new sighting reports, received at our Center since the afternoon of July 17.  We have proof-read all of the reports, but we always caution visitors to our website to be on the alert for defective reports, or reports that appear to describe something other than a genuine UFO.  If you encounter a report that appears questionable, please send a note to director@ufocenter.com, and we will review the report.

RADIO APPEARANCE

Peter Davenport will make his weekly appearance on Coast-to-Coast AM, hosted by George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on Thursday night, July 23rd, 2015.  Peter will discuss several of the most dramatic and convincing cases that have been received during the past week.  A few of the cases that Peter may discuss include the following:

·         Colorado Springs, Colorado, Thursday, July 23rd, 2015, @ 0945 hrs. (MDT)—A group of at least eight co-workers, standing outside during a morning break, witness a gold colored object hovering motionless in the cloudless blue sky.  After approximately 30 minutes, the object just fades away.  A photo was taken, but the image of the object is very small and indistinct.  Witness Report

·         Indialantic, Florida, Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015, @ 2300 hrs. (EDT)—A group of 7 friends witnessing a disc-shaped craft hover over the water near a local beach for an estimated 3 minutes.  Object suddenly accelerates and disappears in the night sky.  Witness Report

·         Newport News/Hampton, Virginia, Tuesday, July 21, 2015, @ 2223 hrs. (EDT)—A husband and wife exit a tunnel and both of them immediately see a triangular craft hovering nearby.  After a few seconds, the object just suddenly shoots straight up into the sky.  Witness Report

Posted on Thursday evening, July 23rd, 2015.


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON FRIDAY, JULY 17, 2015

We have update our website with the posting of 159 new sighting reports, received since July 10th.

We have proof-read this batch of reports fairly well, we believe, but there is always a chance that we have overlooked cases that are either hoaxes, or cases of mistaken identity.  Consequently, we urge all the visitors to our site to be on the lookout for flawed cases, as they read through them.

Peter Davenport will make his regular weekly appearance on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory on Friday evening, July 17, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific).  Peter will discuss some of the more interesting reports that have been submitted over the past week.  Some of the reports he will discuss include the following:

·         St. Louis, Missouri, on Friday, July 17, 2015, @ 1544 hrs. (CDT)—An adult male was driving along a perimeter road on the eastern edge of the Spirit of St. Louis Airport, west of St. Louis, and reports witnessing a very bright object, approximately one tenth the perceived diameter of the Sun, hovering to the west of the airport.  The witness is an aviation specialist, and reports that the object could not have been an aircraft.  (Written report from the S120422witness is pending.)

·         Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Saturday, July 11, 2015, @ 2145 hrs. (CDT)—Two adult witnesses observe a cluster of three orange lights drift across the nighttime sky. They captured the image to the right.   Witness Report

·         Lamoine, Maine, on Wednesday night, July 08th, 2015, @ 2130 hrs. (EDT)—An adult female looks out her bedroom window and sees an estimated 8-10 lighted objects, each about the size of a baseball, flying in a sporadic manner around her back yard.  After a few seconds, the objects just suddenly disappeared, but they appeared a second time, a short time later.  They disappeared again, but returned for a third visit.  The entire event lasted an estimated 10 minutes.  Witness Report

·         Germantown, Maryland, on Friday, May 15, 2015, @ 0945 hrs. (EDT)—An adult male, driving on I-270, looked to the west, and witnessed three strange looking objects, flying very rapidly from his left to right.  The two objects in the lead looked like railroad tank cars, but larger, he thought.  They were being followed by a much smaller, dark-colored object, that appeared to be traveling at the same velocity, and in the same direction, as the other two objects.  Witness Report

We will post again, within the next several days.

NUFORC HOMEPAGE UPDATE ON FRIDAY, JULY 10, 2015

We update our site again today, July 10th, for the third time over the past week.  Since July 7th, NUFORC has received approximately 86 written reports, which now appear in our database of sighting reports.

Please note that there is always the possibility that some of the reports may be defective, for one reason or another, and that not all of the reports address sightings of authentic UFOs.  Moreover, some of the sightings which were posted on past dates have been amended with updated information, so they may present different S120017material than they did when they first appeared on our website.

RADIO APPEARANCES

Peter is scheduled to appear for two hours on the Jeff Rense Radio Program, beginning at 7:00 p.m. (Pacific), Friday, July 10th, 2015.  The program is principally a web-based radio program, access to which can be obtained at www.Rense.com.  Peter and Jeff will host several guests who have experienced recent sightings of anomalous objects, to include those individuals who submitted the following reports: Witness Report 1     Witness Report 2

Peter will appear on Coast to Coast Radio Program, hosted by George Noory, beginning at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on Friday night, July 10, 2015.  Details of the program can be found at www.CoasttoCoast.com.  Peter will discuss several interesting sighting reports that have been submitted recently.

In addition to those cases linked to above, some of the other reports that have caught our attention are the following:

·         Seattle, Washington, Thursday, July 2nd, 2015, @ 2157 hrs. (PDT)—An adult male, while taking a photograph of downtown Seattle from the vicinity of Lake Union, observes a streak of light across the viewfinder of his camera.  Upon inspecting the photo he had just taken, he notices two disc-shaped objects, seemingly caught in flight above Lake Union.  Witness Report   See photo at right.    High Resolution

·         Wadley, Georgia, Monday, June 29th, 2015, @ 0128 hrs. (EDT)—Enroute from their home in Georgia to their new assignment location in Colorado Springs, Colorado, a husband and wife report witnessing a bizarre looking, disc-shaped, metallic-appearing craft cross the highway in front of their vehicle.  The husband, who has 15 years of service in the military, estimated that the object to have been perhaps as long as 250 meters in length.  He also reported that it was “spewing” flames out the trailing edge of the disc.  The object appeared to accelerate, ascend, and then it quickly disappeared in nearby clouds.  Witness Report    Two renderings appear below.

NUFORC HOMEPAGE UPDATED ON JULY 06TH, 2015

We updated the NUFORC website just three days ago, July 3rd, but because of the large number of interesting reports we received over the July 4th weekend, we have decided to update again today. 

In our last posting, we requested that people be on the lookout for anomalous lights during fireworks displays.  Our request stemmed not so much from a condition of prescience or clairvoyance on our part, as it did from our experience over recent years with abnormally large numbers of reports on July 4th.  For example, we received 273 reports for the date of July 04th, 2014, several of which are linked to below, in our last update. 

Many visitors to our site may question our judgment on this matter, wondering whether the reports arise from fireworks displays.  However, we have observed over several years that many of the reports for July 4th cannot be ascribed to that cause, and that appears to be the case with most of the reports we post for July 4th of this year, as well.

In our haste to post these most recent reports as quickly as possible, we have not devoted as much time to proof-reading the text of the reports as we normally do.  Hence, many of the 170 reports we post on this date, which have been received over the past 72 hours, remain in the same “raw” form they were in, when they arrived at our Center.

We feature below a few recent reports that are exemplary of the many reports our Center has received over the last three days, which address alleged sightings of red, orange, and yellow fireballs.  Often, the fireballs are reported to appear in clusters of up to 150 or 200 such objects:

·         Syracuse, New York, on Saturday, July 4th, 2015, @ 2130 hrs. (Eastern)—Several members of a family, attending a local fireworks display, report having witnessed at least 30 orange “orbs,” over the course of two hours. Witness Report

·         Montpelier, Vermont, on Saturday, July 4th, 2015, @ 2150 hrs. (Eastern)—An adult female reports witnessing an anomalous red light, which she asserts was seen maneuvering overhead for 20 minutes during the local fireworks display.  Witness Report

·         Redlands, California, on Saturday, July 4th, 2015, @ 2030 hrs. (Pacific)—Two adult females witness an anomalous red-orange light maneuver overhead for less than a minute, and then suddenly…instantly…just disappear.  Witness Report

·         Marysville, Washington, on Saturday, July 4th, 2015, @ 2240 hrs. (Pacific)—Two adults, as they drive south on Interstate 5 near Marysville, witness an estimate 11-13 anomalous orange lights in the night sky. Witness Report

We invite visitors to our site to read the other 166 similar reports which we have posted as of this date.

Posted Monday evening, July 06, 2015. 


LakeUnionNUFORC HOMEPAGE UPDATED ON FRIDAY, JULY 3RD, 2015

We begin by wishing all of our fellow U. S. citizens a Happy 4th of July!  We encourage everyone to be safe with fireworks, particularly in those areas that are experiencing hot and dry conditions.

Also, we invite everyone who will be attending fireworks displays tomorrow to be on the lookout for anomalous lights that cannot be ascribed to normal 4th of July pyrotechnics.  For the last several years, our Center has received many credible reports of strange objects that show up, and linger, during fireworks displays.  We provide below links to a few examples the 273 reports NUFORC received for July 4th, 2014.  Other similar reports appear for the same date during earlier years.  A photo of the Seattle/Lake Union sighting appears at right.

RADIO APPEARANCES

Peter Davenport, NUFORC Director, will make his weekly appearance on Coast to Coast, hosted by Mr. George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on Friday night, July 3rd, 2015.  Some of the reports that Peter will discuss include the following: 

·         Lively, Virginia, September 29, 2012, @ 0650 hrs. (Eastern)—An adult male witnesses a tube-shaped object, with strange lights and a transparent nose, hovering just outside his bedroom window.  The strange object suddenly accelerated toward the witness’s home, and passed directly overhead his location.  The next morning, September 30, 2012, a military helicopter passes directly over the same location, where the object had been seen hovering, at very low altitude.  Witness is an academician.  Witness Report   The witness provided the rendering at right and this photo of the helicopter.

·         La Grande, Oregon, June 23rd, 2015, @ 0022 hrs. (Pacific)—A female truck driver and her co-driver witness an intensely bright light ahead of their truck, as they are driving eastbound on I-84, near the Grande Ronde River canyon.  As the object continues to approach their truck, they realize that it is not just one light, but at least four, which appear to be part of a “light bar.”  The lights are so bright that the witnesses have to avert their eyes from it.  The object passes above the cab of their vehicle, and disappears from the witnesses’ sight.  Witness Report

Posted on Friday afternoon, July 3rd, 2015. 


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 24TH, 2015

We have updated our database of sighting reports, as of this date.  Approximately 104 new, and newly revised, reports appear in the updated website. 

Please be on the lookout for flawed reports.  We attempt to remove, or properly label, suspected hoaxes, or other flawed reports, but once in a while, they slip through our proof-reading process.

PETER DAVENPORT WILL BE OUT OF TOWN FOR A FEW DAYS

Peter Davenport, Center Director, will be out of town for the next several days, so he will be away from the Hotline.  However, he will check the Hotline remotely, while he travels.  He will make every effort to return telephone messages on the Hotline, but the responses may be delayed by a few hours.    Nevertheless, we would request that people refrain from calling the Hotline, and instead, submit their reports, using our Online Report Form, found here on our website. 

“PASSIVE” RADAR UPDATE

For the past many years, Peter Davenport has been discussing the possibility of using a “passive” radar system for the direct detection of UFOs in the near-Earth environment.  Depending on conditions, a “passive” system could detect the presence of a UFO, and other targets, at a distance of thousands, or perhaps tens of thousands, of kilometers above the surface of the planet.  For a discussion of Peter’s proposal, we would like to direct visitors to our homepage to the article he wrote in 2004, for presentation at a MUFON symposium in Denver in July of that year. 

We also link here an advertisement for a commercially produced “passive” radar system, built in Germany, which exploits the same concept Peter proposes in his paper for detecting targets, using the reflected signals of commercial radio and television signals off of radar targets.  The advertisement illustrates that “passive” radar is no longer just a “pie in the sky” solution to target detection.  It is already being used by governments for the clandestine detection of aerial targets, and there is no reason that it cannot be used for detecting UFOs, if they are present in the vicinity of our planet.

In addition, we include a link to a recent (June 15, 2015) article that appeared recently on BBC news regarding the use of “passive” radar for air traffic control in the U.K.:

http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-33063353 

The radar system discussed in the article would detect all targets that reflect electromagnetic radiation, and not just aircraft of terrestrial origin.  The equipment, e.g. computers, GPS system, etc., are now available which will allow humans, for the first time, to detect directly the presence of UFOs in the near-Earth environment.  We will discuss this subject again, in the near future.

We will post again sometime during the upcoming weekend.

Posted on Wednesday afternoon, June 24th, 2015.   


NUFORC WEBSITE IS UPDATED AS OF FRIDAY AFTERNOON, JUNE 19, 2015

We have posted approximately 112 new, and newly amended, reports, as of this date. 

There is always the chance that there are flawed reports among those we post, so we urge visitors to our site to be discriminating, while reading those reports.  If you encounter a report that you question, or which appears to describe an event of terrestrial origin, and it is not appropriately labelled, please call it to our attention, and we will address the issue, at our earliest convenience.

RADIO APPEARANCE

Peter Davenport is scheduled to make the next of what have become almost weekly appearances on the Coast to Coast AM radio program, hosted by George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on Friday night, June 19, 2015.  Some of the sighting reports that Peter will discuss during the program we highlight below:

·         S119606zoomHigh Plains, Oregon, Sunday, June 14, 2015, @ 1230 hrs. (Pacific)—Three young men, all roommates, witness a disc-shaped object, seen hovering near their residence in the daytime sky.  One of the witnesses captures a photo of the object, which is shown at right.  Full Report 1     Full Report 2   Original Full Size Photo

·         Florence, Oregon, Wednesday, June 17, 2015, @ 0255 hrs. (Pacific)—A U. S. Air Force veteran, recently discharged (Honorable) from the military, drives his wife, who is experiencing an asthmatic episode, to the north end of Florence, in order to get her in clear air.  While on a rural road, in the hills above the Pacific Ocean, they both witness a pulsing, amber light hovering just above a nearby field.  Full Report

·         Lombard, Illinois, Wednesday, June 17, 2015, @ 2153 hrs. (Central)—An adult male, located near Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, who is a private pilot and quite familiar with all types of aircraft, hears a low-pitch, deep rumbling sound, emanating from the night sky.  Although no object was visible to the witness, it appeared to be being followed by three military aircraft.  Full Report

·         EatonCoSan Diego, California, Thursday night, June 18, 2015, @ 2236 hrs. (Pacific)—An adult male, standing outside to watch an overflight of the International Space Station ISS), sees two small lights that appear to him to be in proximity to it, and pacing it.  (NOTE:  Satellite witnessed by witness may not have been the ISS, which would have been 15 degrees above the horizontal plane, during the overflight at 22:36 hrs.  Possible sighting of a triplet of Chinese naval surveillance satellites, we wonder.  We will investigate further.  PD)    Full Report

And here is a late-arriving report, with a high-quality photograph of the object witnessed…

·         Eaton/Galeton, Colorado, Thursday, June 18, 2015, @ 2120 hrs. (Mountain)—A husband and wife witness a hovering orange “fireball” in the nighttime sky.  They manage to get a high-quality photos of the object, which can be seen to the right.

We will update our site again, within the next several days.

Posted at 1830 hrs. on Friday, June 19, 2015. 


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON MONDAY AFTERNOON, JUNE 15, 2015

We have updated our website, with the posting of approximately 179 new reports, received since the afternoon of Friday, June 5th, 2015. 

We have attempted to remove, or properly label, all reports that appear to us to be either hoaxes or cases of mistaken identity.  However, there is always the chance that we have missed cases that should have been either deleted, or properly qualified, so we urge visitors to our website to be on the lookout for cases that have nothing to do with sightings of authentic UFOs. 

PHENOMENON OF UNEXPLAINED “FIREBALLS” CONTINUES INTO ITS FOURTH YEAR

Although our Center has received reports of clusters of “fireballs” for at least the past 17 years, the number of such reports suddenly increased, beginning sometime during May 2012.  We have no idea why this apparent change in the nature of reports, and if so-called “Chinese” lanterns can be ruled out, which we believe is typically the case, we then have no idea what the objects are.  We post below a number of reports that will provide an overview of both the very early reports the Center received, over the past decades, as well as some of the more recent reports of the same phenomenon:

·         Rockford, Illinois, February 16, 2000,  2130 hrs. (Central)—Many citizens from this city, including an FAA Air Traffic Controller, reported witnessing a cluster of peculiar orange lights. Full Report  Similar sightings were reported for other dates, as well. 

·         Carteret, New Jersey, July 15, 2001, @ 0030 hrs. (Eastern)—Hundreds, or perhaps tens of thousands, of people were witness to a large cluster of yellow lights.  The incident was reported by all major news media.  Full Report

·         Tinley Park, Illinois, August 21, 2004, @ 2200 hrs. (Central)—Many reports were submitted from Tinley Park and the City of Orland from individuals who described having witnessed a cluster of red lights, which slowly faded from sight.  Full Report

·         Tinley Park, Illinois, October 31st, 2004, @ 2000 hrs. (Central)—For a second time in ten weeks, multiple witnesses report seeing a cluster of slow-moving, red lights.  Full Report

The reports of the “fireballs” suddenly increased in number, and dramatically so, in May 2012.  In fact, they have been so numerous that they now constitute the majority of the reports submitted to our Center, during most calendar months.  We estimate that over the last three years, we have posted approximately 12,000 such reports!  Despite the large number of the reports we have collected, we have yet to arrive at a conclusion as to what the objects are.  We provide below a few of the reports submitted during this early stage of the phenomenon.

·         Glendale, California, May 15, 2012, @ 2200 hrs. (estimate) (Pacific)—A witness on the ground observes three red lights “play” with what appeared to be a law-enforcement helicopter. Full Report

·         St. Louis, Missouri, June 1st, 2012, @ 2100 hrs. (Central)—A police officer and his wife, while driving to the south on I-55, observe a cluster of “glowing orange” orbs fly in front of their vehicle.  The display apparently causes a major accident on the interstate.  Full Report

·         Beacon Rock State Park, Washington, June 2nd, 2012, @ 2030 hrs. (Pacific)—Multiple adult campers at Beacon Rock State Park, located 30-40 miles east of Vancouver, Washington, on the north shore of the Columbia River, witness approximately 20-30 glowing, orange “fireballs,” which approach from the west, and then turn north. Full Report

Some of the more recent reports of red, orange, or yellow “fireballs” follow:

·         Athens, Texas, July 5th, 2013, @ 2215 hrs. (Central)—A former astronaut, his wife, and their adult daughter witness six red objects pass overhead at high speed, each following the path taken by the identical object ahead of it.  Full Report

NUFORC DATABASE OF SIGHTING REPORTS UPDATED ON FRIDAY, JUNE 05TH, 2015

We have posted 126 new reports, received by our Center since May 29th.  We have proof-read all of the reports, but there is always the likelihood that some of the reports may be flawed.  Hence, we recommend that as you read the reports, please be on the lookout for flawed reports and hoaxes.  If you detect that a report may contain and error, please send a message to director@ufocenter.com, and we will review the report.

Visitors to our site will note that many of the reports state that photos were taken, using cell phones.  We would post those photos, depending on their quality, but more often than not, the witness does not follow up by sending the photo(s).  We cannot post them, if we don’t receive them! 

Also, of the photos that are forwarded to our Center, the overwhelming majority of them are of such low quality that they are not worth posting, we usually conclude.  That fact explains why we post so few photos, to accompany their respective reports.  However, some witnesses have pledged that they will forward their photos.  If we receive interesting photos, we will post them, sometime soon. 

Statement posted on Friday afternoon, June 5th, 2015.


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON FRIDAY, MAY 29, 2015

NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON FRIDAY, MAY 08, 2015

Approximately 140 newly submitted sighting reports, submitted to our Center since April 30th, 2015, have been posted to our website, as of this date.  We have proof-read all of the reports, checking for errors and hoaxes, but there is always a possibility that we may have overlooked some even obvious errors, so as visitors read through them, we encourage them to be on the lookout for flawed reports and errors.  If you detect what you believe to be an error, please send notification to director@ufocenter.com, and we will address the issue as quickly as possible.

RADIO APPEARANCES ON FRIDAY NIGHT, MAY 08TH, 2015

Peter Davenport, Center Director, will make his monthly appearance on the Jeff Rense Radio Program, at from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (Pacific), in order to discuss recent sightings, and to host several guests.  Internet access to the program is available at www.rense.com.   Peter will also appear for his weekly report on the Coast to Coast AM radio program, hosted by Mr. George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific).  Peter will discuss a few recent sighting reports. 

We present below a few recent reports, which have caught our attention, and which may be discussed during the radio appearances cited above:

·         Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, on Thursday, May 07th, 2015, @ 2315 hrs. (Eastern)—A young adult male reports having witnessed an oval-shaped orange object, the apparent size of a full Moon, in the eastern sky, moving slowly from north to south.  The object appeared to have stripes of orange light on its sides. Full Report

·         Spring Hill, Florida, on Thursday, May 07th, 2015, @ 2115 hrs. (Eastern)—A husband and wife witnessed an orange, oblong-shaped object move across the night sky, traveling from north to southeast.  Full Report

·         Santa Rosa, California, Wednesday, May 06th, 2015, @ 2330 hrs. (Pacific)—A woman looks out her bedroom window and sees what appeared to her to be an orange ball of light.  The light radiating from the object appeared to pulse with a regular frequency, and the orange color would darken, in sympathy with the pulsing of the intensity of the light radiating from the object.  Full Report

·         Soddy Daisy, Tennessee, Saturday, May 02nd, 2015, @ 0925 hrs. (Central)—An adult male witnesses a silver colored disc, against a clear blue morning sky, as it streaks to the south above his car.  The duration of the sighting, the witness estimates, was less than two seconds, during which the object covered an estimated 60-80 degrees of arc.  Full Report     Illustration 1    Illustration 2

·         Fairfax, Virginia, Thursday, May 07, 2015, @ 2000 hrs. (Eastern)—A husband and wife witnessed a peculiar, round, stationary, brightly illuminated object in the nighttime sky.  They observe the object with binoculars, telephoto camera lenses, and a telescope, and later determine that the object probably was a weather balloon, or “radiosonde.”  Similar object reported from Fallston, Maryland, for a sighting there at 1830 hrs. (Eastern).  Full Report 1    Full Report 2    Photo of Object     Photo of Radiosonde   NOTE:  We include these two reports, not because we believe they are related to the sightings of a genuine UFO, but rather, because the incident illustrates how a motivated witness often is able to investigate a sighting of an unidentified object, and answer, to his own satisfaction, what the object was.  Based on the photos, and on the investigation by the source of one of the reports above, our assumption is that the object was, indeed, a radiosonde/weather balloon.

Posted on Friday afternoon, May 8th, 2015


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON THURSDAY AFTERNOON, APRIL 30, 2015

We have updated our website and database with the posting of 107 new, or recently amended, sighting reports. 

Given that we almost certainly cannot detect and remove all of the errors and hoaxed reports, in the course of proof-reading them before posting, please be on the lookout for defective reports, as you read through them.  If you encounter what you believe is a flawed report, please copy the link to the report and send it to us at director@ufocenter.com , with an explanation of your thoughts on the case, and we will look into the matter at our earliest convenience.

CORRECTION:  On April 8th and 17th, we posted reports from two witnesses, who reported a cluster of tiny white objects seen moving in the nighttime sky above the cities of Kamploops and Lake Williams, British Columbia.  However, we have been apprised by Mr. Ted Molczen, a volunteer with the SeeSat-L group of volunteer satellite trackers, that the objects were probably fragments of the “Dragon” 2nd stage rocket of the Falcon 9 supply capsule, which had been launched just a few hours before the sightings.  We express our sincere gratitude to Mr. Molczen for sharing the information with NUFORC.    We would like to note here that the three witnesses described the objects they had witnessed in perfect detail, for which we compliment them.  They reported having witnessed at least four tiny white objects, possibly more, two of which were quite noticeably larger than the others.  That is almost exactly what several of the SeeSat-L ground observers reported, as well.  The larger objects are thought to have been the shrouds around the satellite, which were jettisoned from the satellite, once it had exited the Earth’s atmosphere.  Full Report 1     Full Report 2

We share below some of the reports that have captured our attention, this week: 

·         Green Valley, AZ, Monday, August 12, 2015, @ 1330 hrs. (Pacific) - A heavy-equipment operator witnessed a very bright light approaching his position at high velocity, and he had the presence of mind to take two photos of the object with his cell phone.  The object accelerated away from the area so quickly that the witness almost did not have time to capture a second photo.  Full Report    Photo 1    Photo 2

·         Lordsburg, NM, Thursday, January 15, 2015, @ 0230 hrs. (Mountain) - A trucker sees a very peculiar object being hauled westbound on Interstate 10, which appeared to straddle the two lanes of the highway.  We strongly suspect that the object has nothing to do with the UFO phenomenon, but the incident was so interesting to us, and the quality of the witness’s illustration was of such high quality, we have decided to share it here.  If anyone visiting our site witnessed the same object, we would welcome a report.  Full Report

RADIO APPEARANCE

Peter Davenport will make his weekly appearance on Coast to Coast AM, hosted by Mr. George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m., on Thursday night, April 30, 2015.  Peter will discuss the cases described above, plus several others.

We have updated the website, with the posting of 122 recently received, or revised, sighting reports, received over the last week.  We have attempted to proof-read and screen the reports to the greatest degree possible, but there is always the possibility that errors may have escaped our scrutiny.  Consequently, please be alert for reports that are obviously flawed, or which appear to be pranks.  If you find reports that look suspicious, please call them to our attention by sending an e-mail to director@ufocenter.com. 

Some of the reports which appear to us to be particularly interesting are the following:

We have updated the website, as of this date, with the posting of approximately 170 new, and newly amended, reports.  Given that we had limited time, this week, for proof-reading new reports, it is likely that there are hoaxes and flaws in the newly posted reports.  If, in the course of reading the reports, you encounter what you believe may be an error, please send the link to the report to director@ufocenter.com, and we will look at the report, at our earliest convenience. Some of the recent reports that we found especially interesting are shown below:

NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON, APRIL 03, 2015

We have updated the NUFORC website, as of this date, with the posting of 142 new reports, submitted to our Center since Thursday, March 26, 2015.  The time we have available to us for proof-reading the reports was considerably less than we usually devote to that task, so please be on the look-out for flawed reports and hoaxes.  We have intercepted several of what we believe were “April Fool’s” reports for April 1st, but there may be others remaining among the ones we have posted.  If you encounter a report that you believe is flawed, or which may be an attempt to contaminate our database with a hoaxed report, please send us a link to the report, we will review it, and deal with it appropriately.

We have updated our website database of sighting reports, as of this date, with the posting of 91 recently received reports.  As you read through the new material, please be on the look-out for flawed or hoaxed reports.

·         Lisbon, Portugal, Sunday, March 22, 2015, @ 2100 hrs. (local time) - An adult male photographs a nearby castle, lowers the camera, and sees two clusters of lights in the nighttime sky.  The lights appear in the photo, as well.  The witness reports that he was outside, at the time of the sighting, thereby ruling out the possibility of a reflection from the inside of window glass.  (NUFORC NOTE:  At the time of this posting, we are considering the possibility that the lights may be lens flares, caused by pointing a camera at a very bright source of light.  We invite comments on the photo.  PD)  Full Report   Photograph

·         Lansing, Michigan, Friday, March 20, 2015, @ 0400 hrs. (EDT)—An adult female, who is a medical professional, was awakened by the fact that her house was shaking, or vibrating.  Shortly after having been awakened by the shaking of her house, the witness noticed also that her bedroom was being illuminated by an intensely bright light from outside her house, which also caused her to experience the sensation of warming of her skin.  Witness later reports that her laptop computer was defective, and that the keys on the keyboard were somewhat “scrambled.”  Full Report

NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2015

We have posted approximately 115 new, and newly revised, sighting reports, which were received prior to noon on Friday, February 20, 2015.  The reports have been reviewed for obvious errors and hoaxes, but there always remains the possibility that we have overlooked some reports that may be flawed.  Consequently, please be on the alert for reports that appear to contain errors.  Certainly, not all of the reports we have posted relate to sightings of “bona fide” UFOs, many of which we have labelled as prank reports, or cases of mistaken identity.

Some of the many reports that we found to be exceptionally interesting are the following:

·         Walburg, Texas, Thursday, February 19, 2015, @ 09:40 hrs. (Central)—A man and wife were driving north on Interstate 35, between Austin and Dallas, when they witnessed two white, tubular- shaped, objects pass across the highway in front of them.  The objects appeared to the witnesses to be flying in a “nose to tail” trajectory across the sky, and they disappeared within approximately 20 seconds in the eastern sky. Full Report

·         Arlington, Oregon, on Thursday, February 19, 2015, @ 11:55 hrs. (Pacific)—As a woman is driving west on Interstate 84, in the vicinity of Arlington, OR, her attention is captured by a peculiar “roaring” sound off to her right side.  She glances to her right out over the Columbia River, and witnesses a metallic looking, circular, disc-shaped craft descend to within an estimated 15 feet of the surface of the water, maneuver and turn to the north, and then shoot up into the daytime sky, to the northwest of her location.  The whole sighting lasted an estimated 12 seconds.  Witness plans to submit an illustration of what she saw.   Full Report

·         Mt. Shasta, California, Monday, February 16, 2015, @ 22:30 hrs. (Pacific)—A Captain and 1st Officer of a commercial airliner see two very bright, stationary lights in the night sky above them.  The Captain estimates that the lights might have been at 100,000 feet, or higher, and they seemed to him to be stationary.  After approximately a minute from the first sighting of the objects, they simply extinguished, and sequentially disappeared from the witnesses’ sight. Full Report

·         Tulsa, Oklahoma, Wednesday, February 11, 2015, @ 15:00 hrs. (Central)—A young woman, who elects to remain anonymous, reports allegedly having been witness a very strange sound, which seemed to emanate from the daytime sky.  She claims that two military jet fighters passed overhead, and she surmised that they might have been related to the strange sound, which continued even after the fighter aircraft had passed overhead.  Witness asserts that approximately a dozen power transformers had “blown up,” causing a large power failure in her area.  ((NUFORC Note:  We will attempt to confirm the power failure, at a later date.  PD))  Full Report

Approximately 86 reports, submitted to our Center since February 6th, have been posted to our website, as of this date.  As you read the reports, please be on the lookout for flawed, or hoaxed, reports.  If you detect an error, please send a note to director@ufocenter.com, and we will re-examine the report.

Here are some of the reports that we have found to be particularly interesting:

·         Bristow, Oklahoma, Monday, February 09, 2015, @ 0758 hrs. (CST)—While driving her daughter and granddaughter to school, she glances up into morning sky, and realizes that there is a line of tiny, white, lights, all in an almost perfectly straight line, passing beneath the Moon.  She glances back at the road, and then back at the cluster of lights, as they continue to course generally to the north and northwest.  Full Report     Witness Illustration

·         Port Orchard, Washington, Wednesday, February 11, 2015, @ 0230 hrs. (PST)—A young man is awakened from sound sleep by a peculiar “throbbing” sound.  Upon awakening, he realized that the electrical power in his home was apparently fluctuating.  The sound became louder still, at which time the power failed completely.  He noticed electrical anomalies in his house later that morning.  Full Report

RADIO APPEARANCES

Peter Davenport will make his weekly appearance on the Coast to Coast AM, hosted by George Noory, on Thursday night, February 12, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific), to discuss the above cases, and several others.

Peter will appear on the Jeff Rense Radio Program at from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (Pacific) on Friday, February 13th, 2015.  Jeff and Peter will host the witnesses to at least one of the above reports, and probably other witnesses to other reports that are posted to the NUFORC website.

We will post again soon, probably within the next several days.

NUFORC HOMEPAGE UPDATED ON FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 06, 2015

We have updated our database of sighting reports, with the addition of 115 new reports, submitted to our Center since January 30th.  We have proof-read the new reports to the best of our ability, but there is always the possibility that some of the posted reports may be cases of mistaken identity, or hoaxes.  Hence, we encourage visitors to our site to be alert for the possibility of defective, or misleading, reports.

RADIO APPEARANCES

Peter Davenport, Center Director, will appear briefly on the Coast to Coast AM radio program, hosted by George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on Friday night, February 06, 2015.  Peter will discuss a few of the more interesting cases that have been reported to NUFORC, over the last week, to include some of those that follow below:

·         Tempe, Arizona, Sunday, February 1st, 2015, @ 1940 hrs. (MST) - A young woman reports having witnessed a distinctly triangular-shaped craft in the nighttime eastern sky, flying from south to north.  She reports that the object executed a very abrupt turn to the west, and then appeared to accelerate noticeably.  The object appeared to the witness to follow Interstate 10, taking it either over, or near, Sky Harbor Airport, and in the direction of the Super Bowl football game, which was in process at the time.  Moreover, the witness reports observing two military fighter jets apparently pursuing the object, which were flying in a direction to intercept the object.

·         San Jose, California, Sunday, February 1st, 2015, @ 2030 HRS. (PST) - While sitting in an outdoor hot tub, facing south, an adult male witnesses a bright red “fireball” pass slowly from his right to left (west to east).  He reports that the first object was followed by another nine, seemingly identical objects, which appeared to follow the course that the first object had followed. Full Report

·         Woodstock, Georgia, Monday, February 2nd, 2015, @ 2115 HRS. (EST) - A husband and wife witness a prominent red orb approaching their home from over a nearby line of trees.  The two witnesses stand and watch as three more identical objects pass overhead and disappear over the opposite tree line. Full Report

·         Atlanta, Georgia, Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015, @ 0645 HRS. (EST) - A woman reports that she, her son, and her daughter were driving to work, when they allegedly witness a strange-looking object in the morning sky.  The attempt to photograph the object, and apparently inadvertently photograph an alien creature, standing on the roadway in front of their car.  Full Report    Alien Image 1    Alien Image 2

NOTE/CAUTION:  We have spoken with the woman who submitted the report and photo, and she sounds to us to be both sincere, and serious-minded.  She claims to have seen the creature, at the time the photo was taken.  However, the photo has not be authenticated, and we post it here with a considerable degree of apprehension, not knowing whether it is an authentic photo, or whether it might be a hoax.  We are aware that there are some “spam” programs, which are capable of embedding “spam” images of aliens in photos taken with some types of cell telephones.   However, we post the photo, nevertheless, believing that if it is authentic, humanity deserves to be aware of the sighting incident.  We have requested that sighting reports be submitted by the other witnesses, who allegedly also witnessed the creature, at the time.

We will post again within the next several days.

Posted Friday afternoon, February 06, 2015.


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON JANUARY 26TH AND 30TH

We have updated our database of sighting reports, on both January 26 and 30, posting approximately 350 new, and newly amended cases.  Approximately 800 reports have been received, and posted, by NUFORC during the month of January.  Some of the reports have been proof-read in only a hurried and cursory manner, so as visitors to our website read them, we suggest that they please be on the lookout for errors, and for reports that are obvious hoaxes, or cases of mistaken identity, e.g. reports of stars or planets.

Some of the more interesting sighting reports that have captured our attention are discussed below:

·         Friday Harbor, San Juan Island, Washington State, Thursday, January 15, 2015, @ 1830 hrs. (PST)—A man and wife, both experienced pilots, while driving near downtown Friday Harbor, witness three distinctly orange objects in the northeast sky, which appeared to be approaching the witnesses’ location.  The objects stopped, and hovered for a short period of time, at which time, all three objects appeared suddenly to accelerate, and ascend at high speed into the northwest sky.  A news article about the sighting was written by a reporter, Mr. Dennis Box, and published by the San Juan Journal, in which the husband was interviewed about the sighting.  Several other credible witnesses, who also allegedly had witnessed the objects, contacted the newspaper, and may submit additional reports to NUFORC.  Full Report

·         Murrels Inlet, South Carolina, Tuesday, January 20, 2015, @ 2100 hrs. (EST)—An adult female witnesses curious looking lights in the southwest sky, which immediately attract her attention.  Within one minute, the objects approach her location, at which time she can see that they are three identical, triangular craft, each with a red light at the nose and, green and white lights on both sides of the craft.  Full Report

S117019S117019A

·         Anacortes, Washington State, Saturday, January 24th, 2015, @ 2330 hrs. (PST)—Two sets of adult witnesses, at different locations to the east of downtown Anacortes, see a cluster of approximately eight yellow lights, split into two separate groups, in the western sky.  The lights disappear, one after another, from the witnesses’ sight.  Full Report 1    Full Report 2

RADIO APPEARANCES ON FRIDAY NIGHT, JANUARY 30, 2015, AT 8:00 P.M. (PST) AND 10:00 P.M. (PST)—Peter Davenport, NUFORC Director, will make a 2-hour appearance on the Jeff Rense Radio Program, beginning at 8:00 p.m. (PST).  Jeff and Peter will host the witnesses to the three cases cited above, and will discuss other aspects of the UFO phenomenon.

Peter will make his weekly appearance on the Coast to Coast AM radio program, hosted by George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (PST).  Peter will provide a brief synopsis of each of the cases cited above, and will discuss several other issues of interest, as well.

Posted Friday afternoon, January 30, 2015.


NUFORC HOMEPAGE UPDATED ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 9, 2015

We have revised our database of sighting reports with the posting of approximately 390 new, and newly revised, reports.  Approximately 355 of those reports have been received by NUFORC since our last posting on December 22, 2014.

PHOTOGRAPHS, VIDEOS, AND ILLUSTRATIONS

Over the last several weeks, NUFORC has received quite a number of interesting graphics, both photographic, as well as artistic, which pertain to the reports we have posted, as of this date.  We are sorting through the collection, and expect to post some of the most interesting, and convincing, examples, within the next two days. 

To whet people’s anticipation of some of the photographic evidence we have received recently, we post below four photos that were sent to our Center by a current member of the U. S. military of a sighting that reportedly occurred at approximately 22:00 hrs. (MST) on Monday, December 08, 2014, above an undisclosed military site in New Mexico.  At least three of the photos were taken by one of the witnesses, using military grade night-vision devices.  Full Report   Photo 1  Photo 2  Photo 3  Photo 4

RADIO APPEARANCES

Peter Davenport, Center Director, is scheduled to make his monthly appearance on the Jeff Rense Radio Program at 7:00-9:00 p.m. (Pacific) on Friday, January 09, 2015.  Jeff and Peter will host several of the witnesses to sighting events that are posted to our website, to include perhaps a form law enforcement officer who experienced a dramatic sighting near his residence in Oakville, Missouri, just south of St. Louis, at 00:04 hrs. (CST) on Thursday, January 01st, 2015. Full Report.    A sighting report was submitted from St. Peters, Missouri, St. Charles County, for a sighting of a similar object just two minutes prior to the Oakville sighting, at 00:02 hrs. (CST) on the same date.  Full Report

Peter made his brief weekly appearance on the Coast to Coast AM radio program, hosted by George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (PST) on Thursday night, January 8th, to discuss a few of the recent sightings NUFORC has received over the past two weeks. 

Posted on Firday evening, January 9th, 2015. 


NUFORC HOMEPAGE UPDATED ON THURSDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2014

We have posted approximately 131 new, or newly amended, reports to our website, as of this date. 

We always alert visitors to the possibility of errors in the reports, so please be on the lookout for flaws in the reports, and most of all, hoaxes or obvious examples of mistaken identity.  An example of the type of error that occurs is that witnesses fail to indicate whether the time of their sighting is a.m., or p.m., and it usually takes us several days to identify, and eliminate, those errors. 

Another good example of flawed reports NUFORC received from people in the Los Angeles area, who witnessed the dramatic launch of an Atlas V rocket from Vandenberg AFB at 19:19 hrs. (Pacific Standard Time) on Friday night, December 12th, 2014.  Several such reports appear in our database for that time and date, one of which even suggests that the witnesses observed what they thought may have been electromagnetic interference of street lamps during the sighting.  We suspect, but are not certain, that the lamps’ optically-actuated switches, which are sensitive to ambient light, may have been activated by the bright light radiated by the rocket’s engine.

After we began the process of updating our website, we received a telephoned report from a young woman from Staten Island, NY, of her sighting there of a cluster of red lights, which occurred at 17:45 hrs. (EST) on December 18th, 2014.  It is yet another good example of the many thousands of reports our Center has received over recent years of clusters of red or orange “fireballs.”  We copy her report below:

Date:  12/18/14

Time:  17:45

Duration:  15 minutes

Sighting City:  Staten Island

Sighting State:  NY

Sighting Zip:  10305

Sighting County:  Richmond

Witnesses:  1

Shape:  Fireball

Number of Craft: 10+

Description: Red dots, followed by red clear orb, followed by more red dots.

New Dorp/Staten Island/New York City:  First a series of red dots, low in the air, below planes.  No sound, and swift motion.

Followed was a clear red orb that quickly went by the red dots.  The red orb passed and for about 10 minutes, after more and more red dots followed that craft.

The location of the event is: Lat/Lon:  40.57 deg.N 74.1 deg.W.  The elevation is 36ft. Wind speed at this time was NW 16 G 26 Mph.  All movement was toward the Atlantic ocean.

Lights On Object: Yes

HOLIDAY SCHEDULE

NUFORC’S webmaster, Christian, may be traveling over the Christmas holiday, so we may not be able to update the website for a week, or more, from this posting. 

Also, Peter Davenport will be out of town for much of the holiday season, but will check telephone messages remotely, as he travels.  It would reduce our workload if people wishing to submit a sighting report could simply go directly to the Online Report Form on our website, and submit a written report, rather that telephoning the Hotline.  Thank you!

RADIO SCHEDULE

Peter will make his traditional weekly appearance on Coast to Coast AM, hosted by George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time) on Thursday, December 18, 2014.  Peter will discuss some of the more recent reports.

We have updated our website, as of this date, with the posting of approximately 94 sighting reports, received since December 5th, 2014. 

We make an attempt to proof-read each of the reports, but we cannot catch all the errors, and all of the hoaxed reports, so we ask visitors to our site, as they read the reports, to be on the lookout for obvious errors.  If you detect what you believe is a flawed report, please send a message to director@ufocenter.com, and we will examine the report at our earliest convenience.

·         Ironton, Ohio, Monday, November 17, 2014, @ 18:00 hrs. (EST)—A former, very experienced law enforcement officer, who is also a commercial pilot, takes his dogs outside for a walk.  He notices two very peculiar bright red “ring-shaped” objects, with orange “dots” on the inner edge of the rings.  The witness runs to get a camera, and the objects disappear while he is searching for his camera.  Full Report

·         Lehighton, Pennsylvania, Friday, November 27, 2014, @ 23:00 hrs. (EST)—Driving north on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, an off-duty law enforcement officer witnesses a small green light ahead of his vehicle, which appears to be pacing him.  The light apparently “hops” into the southbound lane, reverses its direction of travel, and approaches the witness’s vehicle.  A second similar green light joins the first. Full Report    

·         Grande Prairie, Albert, Canada, Sunday, November 30, 2014, @ 13:00 hrs.

NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 06, 2014

 

Because of recent out-of-town travels by both Peter Davenport and our webmaster, Christian Stepien, we have not been able to update our website since October 10th.  We apologize for the delay, but it was unavoidable. 

 

We have posted approximately 680 new, and newly amended, reports, most of which have been received since October 10th, 2014.  Due to the large accumulation of new reports, and because of our desire to get them posted as quickly as possible, we have not been able to proof-read them as carefully as we traditionally do.  Consequently, there may be a greater than normal number of errors in the new reports than is typical.  Therefore, we encourage visitors to our site to be on the keen lookout for flawed reports, and to report obvious or possible errors to director@ufocenter.comWe will review the report(s), and will amend or remove them, as required.

 

COMMENT ABOUT THE QUALITY OF REPORTS

 

The majority of the time we spend updating our website is devoted to proof-reading and editing reports that have been submitted via our website.  A significant fraction of them are so poorly composed, and so difficult to understand, we elect not to post them at all.  We are considering not posting those future reports that are so poorly written that they cannot be understood, and which clearly have not been subjected to a “Spell Check” function.  Hence, if you submit a report to our Center, using our Online Report Form, and if you would like to have the report posted to our website, please make certain that all errors have been corrected, before submitting your report.  We no longer have the time to correct all errors in everyone’s report!

 

Some of the reports that have caught our attention are the following:

 

·         Charlotte (Matthews), North Carolina, Sunday, November 02nd, 2014, @ 1900 hours (EST) - At least two adults witness approximately 50 luminous objects in the night sky.  Full Report  Photograph   Sightings by other witnesses were reported in this article in the Charlotte Observer newspaper.

·         Marne La Valee, France, Monday, November 03rd, 2014, @ 1750 hrs. (local) - A woman, visiting the “EuroDisney” complex, takes several photos of a passing float display, and later notices a number of objects in the photo.  The objects appear to be moving in the opposite direction that nearby clouds appear to be moving, so they may be moving against the prevailing wind. Full Report  Image 1   Image 2   Image 3   Image 4

FUTURE APPEARANCES

 

Peter Davenport is one of several guests who will appear together with George Noory at a UFO gathering in Toronto, Ontario, beginning at 6:00 p.m. (local) on Saturday, November 08, 2014.  Details of the event can be found on the Coast-to-Coast websitehttp://www.coasttocoastam.com/pages/calendar   

 

We will update the NUFORC website again early next week, and will include other photos that we are awaiting.

NUFORC HOMPAGE UPDATED ON FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2014

We have posted 228 new reports, or recently amended reports, to our homepage, as of today’s date. 

Please note that four reports for the evening of September 02nd, 2014, have been amended, indicating that they were, almost certainly, the result of re-entering debris from the Russian “Cosmos” 2495 satellite, which re-entered approximately ten hours before the sightings that were reported to NUFORC.  The object(s) seen by multiple witnesses in the Midwest U. S. may have been equipment, possibly a solar panel, jettisoned from the satellite, prior to its re-entry.  We provide here a link to the article by Mr. Leonard David, who wrote for www.space.com, in which the re-entry of the Russian reconnaissance satellite is described: http://www.space.com/27318-russian-military-spy-satellite-fall.html.  We express our sincere gratitude to Mr. TED MOLCZAN for his role in the investigation, and for his having brought the information to our attention.

We encourage visitors to our website to be on the alert for other reports, which may address other mundane events, which are not related to sightings of genuine UFOs. 

RADIO APPEARANCES ON OCTOBER 10TH, 2014

Peter Davenport will appear for his monthly appearance on the Jeff Rense radio program from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (Pacific) on Friday night, October 10, 2014.  Jeff and Peter will host three sets of guests, who have experienced sightings of suspected UFOs, not only recently, but in the distant past.  We provide here links to those reports, the sources of which will appear tonight as guests:  Report 1   Report 2    Report 3

At approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on October 10th, Peter will make his weekly appearance on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory.  Peter will discuss a number of recent sightings, to include a few that reportedly have involved possible electro-magnetic interference, according to the source of those reports, to include a recent report from Gainesville, Texas, on Tuesday night, October 7th, 2014. Full Report

Posted Friday, October 10th, 2014. 


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON OCTOBER 3rd, 2014

We have just updated our website, as of this date, with the posting of 272 new, or amended, reports, received since September 25th.

Although we have read all of the new reports in at least a cursory manner, we have not edited them to any great degree, so the new reports may not read as easily as those in some of our earlier postings.  Also, because many of the reports appear in “raw” form, there may be a greater than normal percentage of reports that are pranks, or which are cases of mistaken identity.  Hence, we encourage visitors to our site to be on the lookout for defective cases.

RADIO APPEARANCE ON FRIDAY, OCTOBER 03rd, 2014

Peter Davenport, Center Director, will make another of what have become almost weekly appearances on the Coast to Coast AM radio program, hosted by George Noory, at 10:15 p.m. (Pacific), on Friday night, October 03, 2014.  Peter will discuss several recent reports, to include the following:

S114149Sacramento, California, Thursday, October 02nd, 2014, @ 14:38 hrs. (Pacific)

Two young women, both college students, were lying outside on the grass, following a class, and they suddenly sighted a very fast-moving, triangular white object, passing overhead very rapidly.  A few seconds later, they witnessed a round object, which appeared to follow the same trajectory as the first one had taken.  Full Report 1    Full Report 2   They also supplied the illustration showed to the right.

Breckenridge, Colorado, Friday, October 03rd, 2014, @ 09:30 hrs. (Mountain)

A gentleman sees, and photographs, several objects, which were hovering in the morning sky.  He takes a photo of the objects.  Several other witnesses have reported the same phenomenon.  We suspect that the objects may be high-altitude, helium-filled balloons, launched for scientific purposes, although some of the witnesses have reported that they have seen military fighter aircraft approaching the objects.  Similar objects were also reported from Bluffdale, Utah, on Thursday morning, October 2nd.  Full Report   Photo 1    Photo 2

We will update our site again, within the next several days.

We traditionally request that visitors to our site remain vigilant, when reading the newly posted reports, and to be on the constant look-out for defective reports.  However, the warning is even more poignant this week, given that we learned recently that our Center would be “peppered” with intentionally bogus reports.  If that warning is valid, we believe that we have detected, and labelled, many of those reports.  Other hoaxed reports probably are present in the database, but their detection is difficult. 

RADIO APPEARANCE ON COAST TO COAST AM

Peter Davenport, Center Director, is scheduled to make an appearance on Coast to Coast AM, hosted by George Noory, on Thursday night, September 25th, 2014.  Peter’s brief appearances on the program usually occur on either Thursday or Friday, and they typically begin at 10:15 p.m. (Pacific). 

Tonight, Peter will be addressing a number of interesting cases that have been reported to NUFORC over the last week, including the following:

·         Haleakala National Park, Hawaii, Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014, at 04:37 hrs. (Hawaii) - Two adults were driving up a park road, in order to view the morning sunrise for the autumnal equinox.  Suddenly, a white, translucent sphere, “…a hundred times the size of the Moon,” rose in front of their vehicle, from behind a nearby ridge.  The object approached their vehicle, and both witnesses were left with the S113875impression that they had passed through it.  The presence of the sphere was a third witness who had been at another location.  The witnesses may have experienced missing time, as documented by their hiking computers. Full Report

·         Lafayette, Louisiana, Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014, @ 23:30 hrs. (Central) - An adult male, who is an engineer and experienced pilot, was engaged in “sky watching” with an adult friend.  They both suddenly witnessed two bright red “spheres,” hovering directly above them.  The spheres were visible for an estimated 30-40 seconds, and they moved swiftly to the south, where they disappeared in the haze.  The witness provided the photo at right.   Full Report

·         Collinsville, Illinois, Wednesday, September 24th, 2014, @ 19:45 hrs. (Central) - An adult female was driving on Highway 157, when her attention was suddenly drawn to an extremely bright light that was approaching her.  At first, she thought that the light was a landing light of an approaching military transport aircraft.  However, the object banked, at which point, the witness could see its outline, and she quickly realized that it was a rectangular object, with “LED-type” lights mounted around it periphery.  From the vantage point of the witness, its apparent size was approximately that of a business-size envelope, held at arm’s length.  Full Report

Reports are being submitted so frequently, of late, that we probably will post again early next week.

Statement posted Thursday evening, September 25th, 2014. 


 

NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 18

 

We have updated our website, as of this date, by posting 236 new, and newly amended, sighting reports.  The 221 new reports are those that have been received by NUFORC since the afternoon of September 10th, 2014. We have proof-read the reports as carefully as possible, but there is always the possibility that some of them are flawed.  As you read them, please be on the look-out for errors, and please call to our attention any errors you encounter by sending a note to director@ufocenter.com.

 

RADIO APPEARANCE ON THURSDAY NIGHT, SEPTEMBER 18, 2014

 

Peter Davenport, Center Director, is scheduled to make a brief appearance on Coast to Coast AM radio program, hosted by George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on Thursday night, September 18th.  Peter will discuss a number of recent interesting cases, as well as some of the seemingly peculiar circumstances surrounding the tragic crash of a Massachusetts Air National Guard F-15c fighter in Deerfield, VA, on the morning of August 27th, 2014.

Some of the cases that Peter may address during the program include the following:

 

·         Anaheim, California, on Saturday, September 13, 2014, @ 2315 hrs. (Pacific)—An adult male reports witnessing a transparent, self-luminous, “balloon-like” object, hovering within 20-30 feet of him.  The object approached him, getting within one meter of his position, and when he reached out to the object, it suddenly rose up, and quickly disappeared in the nighttime sky.  Full Report

 

·         Lumberton, Mississippi, Wednesday, September 17, 2014, @ 2015 hrs. (Central)—A retired aerospace engineer reports having witnessed a peculiar looking object, with a slowly pulsing red light, fly across the night sky, apparently being chaperoned by a conventional jet aircraft.  Full Report

 

·         Newburgh, New York, Tuesday, September 16, 2014, @ 2127 hrs. (Eastern)—An adult male captures video footage of a very peculiar white sphere, much larger than stars in the night sky, apparently descending in the night sky.  The object appears to pass through clouds, and possibly disrupt them with turbulence. Full Report   VIDEO

 

·         Cornelius, North Carolina, Wednesday, September 17, 2014, @ 2025 hrs. (Eastern)—An adult male witnesses two peculiar red lights hovering above the highway he was driving on near Cornelius.  Full Report

 

·         New Bern, North Carolina, Wednesday, September 17, 2014, @ 2050 hrs. (Eastern)—A mother and son report witnessing a gigantic, dark triangular craft, slowly fly overhead, blanketing out the stars in the night sky.  Full Report

 

·         Ely (near), Minnesota, on Wednesday, September 17, 2014, @ ~2030 hrs. (Central)—Three males, in their 20’s, report experiencing a very strange bright flash of blue light that illuminated the entire interior of their house.  No sound was heard, and they report that the light seemed to them to not come through a window.  (Reports not received at the time of updating the site.  If written reports are submitted to our Center, they will be posted the next time we update the site.)

 

HIGH-ALTITUDE, HELIUM-FILLED BALLOON SEEN OVER NEW MEXICO ON SEPTEMBER 13TH—Several people reported a brightly illuminated object, seen from the areas of Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico, on Saturday, September 13th.  The object was a helium-filled balloon, carrying a scientific payload, designed to investigate black holes in space.  Details of the launch and project can be seen here:  http://www.livescience.com/47829-x-calibur-telescope-balloon-black-holes.html.   We express our gratitude to Dr. Donald Burleson, Ph.D., State Director of the New Mexico chapter of the Mutual UFO Network, for assisting NUFORC in determining that the object was, in fact, a balloon launch.

 

Update posted on Thursday evening, September 18, 2014. 


NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2014

We have updated our website again, as of this date, with approximately 130 new reports, received since September 5th.  Our normal schedule has been to update the site on Fridays, but we have had to alter that schedule this week, in order to accommodate our webmaster’s travel schedule.   

In the recent past, we have taken a considerable amount of time to proof-read, and often amend, new sighting reports, in order to make them easier to read.  Typically, we spend several minutes on each report to correct spelling, grammar, punctuation, and paragraphing, so that a report is even just barely understandable.  However, given the hurried manner in which we have had to update the website, this week, we have not had the time to devote to the proof-reading process. 

Consequently, visitors to our site will see the form in which many “raw” reports are submitted, and perhaps will understand why we have been pleading with those who submit reports to please proof-read and “spell check” their statements, before submitting them to our Center.  In the near future, we plan to amend our Online Report Form with yet another appeal to have people proof-read their own reports, before submitting them, in order to help us minimize the amount of time it takes us to make a report understandable.  At present, the majority of our time is spent correcting and amending reports, and we would like to change that.

As you read the reports, please bear in mind that some of them may be flawed, and may address something other than the sighting of a genuine UFO.  If you encounter a report that you question, or which appears to contain a flaw, please send a note to director@ufocenter.com, and we will address the issue as quickly as we can.  

RADIO APPEARANCES

Peter Davenport, Center Director, is scheduled to appear on the Jeff Rense radio program on Friday, September 12, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. (Pacific), to discuss several recent sightings.  Jeff and Peter probably will be accompanied by several witnesses to recent sighting events.  Listening information can be obtained at www.Rense.com.   

Also, Peter is scheduled to make brief, weekly appearances on Coast to Coast AM, hosted by George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on the next three Thursdays, September 11, September 18, and September 25th.  During his appearances, Peter will summarize several recent sighting reports, received at NUFORC during the preceding week.  Listening information can be obtained at www.CoasttoCoastAM.com.

Statement posted on Wednesday, September 10, 2014.


 

NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 05, 2014

 

Given the large volume of interesting our Center has received, over the last five days, we have elected to update the website and database of sighting reports again, this week.  We have posted 167 new reports, received via our Online Report Form, since August 31st.  We have received others over our telephone Hotline, for which follow-up written reports have not yet been submitted.

WestJordanAs we always caution, when posting new reports, the likelihood is high that some of the reports are flawed, and have slipped through our process of screening and proof-reading.  Consequently, please be on the look-out for what may be flawed, or misleading, reports.  If you find a report that looks potentially defective, please send a note to director@ufocenter.com, and we will address the issue as promptly as we can.

 

RADIO APPEARANCE ON FRIDAY, SEPT 5TH

 

Peter Davenport, Center Director, is scheduled to make another of what have become brief weekly appearances on COAST TO COAST AM, hosted by Mr. George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on Friday night, September 5th, 2014.  Peter will discuss a few of the more interesting reports, which have been submitted since his last appearance on the program on August 22nd

 

PHOTOS AND VIDEO

 

In prior posts, we announced that we would be posting photographs and video to our homepage.  We are still sorting through many photos and video clips, but we post a couple examples below, which provide examples of some of the higher-quality photos and video we have received recently:

 

West Jordan, Utah – A photo of a cluster of orange “fireballs,” reportedly witnessed over West Jordan, Utah, recently is shown to the right.  We have not yet received a written report from the person who captured the photograph, so we know very little about the incident

 

Canal Winchester, Ohio, on Thursday, September 04, 2014, @ 20:30 hrs. (EDT) - A man captured a short video of a very peculiar looking object, allegedly seen hovering in the night sky, just after dusk.  We just received this report and video, so it is not an authenticated case, yet.  We do not know what the strange-looking object is, and we would welcome other reports from other witnesses.  Full Report  Video

 

Posted on Friday evening, September 05th, 2014.


NUFORC HOMEPAGE UPDATED ON AUGUST 31ST, 2014

We updated the NUFORC database of sighting reports on both August 22 and August 29, and we do so again today, August 31st. 

Our Center received 1,019 written reports during the month of August, the majority of which relate to sightings around the world for this month.  In the course of proof-reading the new reports, we have attempted to correct all obvious errors, but it is probable that errors are still present in many of those reports.  Hence, as you read the reports, we invite you to be on the lookout for errors and flawed reports.  If you encounter what you believe to be a defective or misleading report, we invite you to write us at director@ufocenter.com, and we will address the issue as promptly as we can.

REPORTS OF PARTICULAR NOTE

We post below a few of the more interesting reports that have been submitted to NUFORC over the last month:

·         Sykesville, Maryland, Friday, August 29, 2014, @ 23:20 hrs. (EDT) - A woman, while driving, witnesses a cluster of approximately a dozen red/orange lights.  Possible electromagnetic effects to her vehicle.  Lights may have changed from red to white, before suddenly disappearing.  Full Report

·         Salisbury, Maryland, Saturday, August 30th, 2014, @ 20:48 hrs. (EDT) - A commercial/airline pilot and his girlfriend witness a strange looking triangular craft, with lights in its corners.  Full Report  See photo below:

S113100

·         Charleston, South Carolina, Saturday, August 30th, 2014, @ 22:09 hrs. (EDT) - Multiple witnesses see five green lights, maneuvering relative to each other, as the objects fly across the nighttime sky. Full Report

·         Racine, Wisconsin, Saturday, August 30th, 2014, @ 23:23 hrs. (CDT) - Multiple witnesses observe an “amber/orange” disc fly through the nighttime sky.  Full Report

·         Mankato, Minnesota, Sunday, August 31st, 2014, @ 00:15 hrs. (CDT) - Two witnesses report observing three “reddish-white” lights in the night sky.  Full Report

·         Newton (Auburndale), Massachusetts, June 11th, 1964, @ 20:15 hrs. (EDT) - A family of four, plus neighbors, witness a strange white light, as large as the Moon, hovering in the night sky.  The object illuminated the backyard of the residence quite brightly.  After an estimated 30 minutes, the object suddenly accelerated rapidly up into the night sky.  Full Report

PHOTOS AND VIDEOS

Over the last two months, we have been deluged with many photos and videos of unidentified objects, in both the daytime, and nighttime, skies.  Some of those photos we have posted, and we are sorting through the rest, attempting to put some order to them.  The sorting and culling process is proving to be quite laborious and time consuming, which is the principal reason we have not posted more than we have, given that some of them are quite interesting. 

Once we have sifted through the photos and videos, and determined what appear to us to be the best and most compelling evidence of the apparent presence of UFO activity on our planet, we will begin to post a number of them to our homepage. 

Posted on Sunday afternoon, August 31st, 2014.


 

NUFORC REPORTS UPDATED ON FRIDAY, AUGUST 15, 2014

 

We have posted approximately 220 new, and newly revised, sighting reports, as of this date.

 

In the event that any of the visitors to our site detect errors, or seemingly flawed reports, among the reports in our database, please apprise us of your suspicions by sending a note to director@ufocenter.com.  We will address the issue at our earliest convenience.    

 

RADIO APPEARANCE ON FRIDAY, AUGUST 15, 2014

 

Peter Davenport, Center Director, will appear on the Coast to Coast AM radio program, hosted by Mr. George Noory, in the latest of what have become brief weekly updates, regarding some of the more dramatic and interesting reports our Center has received, over the last week.  We address a few of the reports below:

 

·         Miles City, Montana, (in-flight sighting), Saturday, August 9th, 2014, @ 20:15 hrs. (MDT)—An FAA employee reports a sighting by a commercial flight crew, reported to the FAA Enroute Flight Control Facility.  The crew described a highly reflective, very fast moving, object that flew above their aircraft, which was at high-altitude, and moving very fast.  The object apparently did not appear on radar. Full Report

·         Barrie, Ontario, Canada, Saturday, August 9th, 2014, @ 21:45 hrs. (EDT)—A husband and wife witness a triangular craft, with a pulsing red light on its ventral surface, fly quietly over their house. Full Report

·         Iroquois Falls, Ontario, Canada, Saturday, August 9th, 2014, @ 21:45 hrs. (EDT)—Three witnesses report observing three red lights drift over a nearby lake, all traveling along the same path across the night sky.  Full Report

·         Cornwall, Ontario, Canada, Saturday, August 9th, 2014, @ 21:48 hrs. (EDT)—A husband and wife witness two red-orange “fireballs” pass silently over their house, disappearing within approximately 30 seconds.  The objects seemed to follow the same flight path across the night sky, and did not appear to change their altitude.  Full Report

·         New York City (Manhattan), Sunday, August 10th, 2014, @ 22:00 hrs. (EDT)—Four adults witness a dark gray disc in the night sky.  Object suddenly moves away, perhaps at high speed. Full Report

·         Kaunas, Lithuania, Tuesday, August 12, 2014, @ 22:35 hrs. (local)—An adult male reports having witnessed 6-7 “gray lights,” which passed overhead at high velocity, and which were visible for an estimated 6-10 seconds.  Full Report

 

Today’s date, August 15th, 2014, is the 15th anniversary of a very dramatic, though little known, event that occurred approximately 60-80 miles to the west of Albuquerque, New Mexico, at 23:18 hrs. (Mountain) on a Sunday night, August 15th, 1999 .  Based on the information collected by our Center, we believe that the immense flash of light, which was witnessed from southern Arizona to Wyoming, occurred at in an area in which three fast-moving objects appeared to converge.  For several reasons, we believe that the flash was not the result of a meteor, as was reported by Sandia National Laboratories.    

 

We believe that the incident, about which we have lectured extensively, remains unexplained.  We invite visitors to our website to review the collection of sighting reports posted there for the time and date of the event.

 

Statement posted on Friday evening, August 15, 2014.  

 


 

NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATED ON FRIDAY, AUGUST 08TH, 2014

 

We have posted, as of this date, approximately 220 new, and newly amended, sighting reports, received by NUFORC since August 1st.  

 

The reports have been proof-read to the greatest extent that time has allowed, but there is always the possibility that errors and hoaxed reports have escaped our attention.  Consequently, as visitors to our website read through the reports, we request that they be on the look-out for flawed reports, and that they call such reports to our attention by sending an e-mail to director@nwlink.com.  We will address the reports as quickly as we are able.

 

RADIO APPEARANCES ON FRIDAY, AUGUST 08TH, 2014

 

Peter Davenport, Center Director, had been scheduled to appear on the Jeff Rense Radio Program, for his normally scheduled monthly appearance, but that appearance has had to be re-scheduled.  Peter probably will appear with Jeff on another date, later in August.

 

Peter will appear on Coast to Coast AM, hosted by George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on Friday, August 08th.  Peter will discuss some of the more interesting cases, which have been submitted to NUFORC recently. 

 

Posted Friday night, August 08th, 2014.


NUFORC HOMEPAGE UPDATED ON FRIDAY, AUGUST 1ST, 2014

We have updated the homepage, as of Friday, August 1st, 2014, and have posted approximately 156 new sighting reports, received at our Center since July 26th. 

All of the reports have been proof-read, but there is always a chance that we have overlooked flawed reports.  Consequently, as you read through the reports, if you find one that appears to be flawed, or appears to address a phenomenon that can be easily explained by a terrestrial event, please send us an e-mail about the case, and we will review it at our earliest convenience.  Thank you! 

RADIO APPEARANCE ON FRIDAY NIGHT, AUGUST 01ST, 2014

Peter Davenport, Center Director, will make his weekly appearance on the Coast to Coast AM radio program, hosted by George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Pacific) on Friday night, August 01st, in order to provide an update on recent sightings and events.   

One of the reports Peter will discuss is a recent sighting of peculiar object, witnessed near Camden, Delaware, at approximately 10:30 p.m. (Eastern) on Thursday, July 31st, by a U. S. Army retiree.  He reports witnessing an object that radiated an intensely “emerald green/blue” light, as it flitted about the night sky.  We spoke via telephone with the witness, and he seemed to us to be unusually objective and eloquent in his description of the sighting event.  Full Report

POSTING OF PHOTOS—We continue to sort through the many photos that were submitted to our Center during the month of July, and will soon post some of the better photos and video that we have received recently.

Posted Friday evening, August 1st, 2014.  


 

 NUFORC WEBSITE UPDATE DELAYED BY INTERNET DIFFICULTIES

 

It was our hope to be able to update the database of sighting reports in time for Peter’s appearance on the JEFF RENSE RADIO PROGRAM, but we are experiencing difficulties with our internet service. 

 

Hence, we will not be able to update the database with all the recently submitted reports, but will post here to the homepage the reports from the two witnesses, husband and wife, from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, who will accompany Jeff and Peter on the program to describe their dramatic sighting on Tuesday night, July 22, 2014.  We copy the text of their reports below:

 

Date:  07/22/14

Time:  21:20 (Central Daylight time)

Duration:  20-30 seconds

Sighting City:  Baton Rouge

Sighting State:  Louisiana

Sighting Zip:  70806

Sighting County:  East Baton Rouge Parish

Witnesses:  2

Shape: Disk

Number of Craft:  2

 

Summary Description: Two large disk followed by Apache helicopter with no markings

 

HUSBAND’S REPORT:

 

On the night of July 22, 2014, I was returning home from my night class from my local university which is only about 3 miles from my house.  I was backing my pickup truck up the drive way and while backing up, I could hear a helicopter get louder as if it was approaching my house.

 

I parked the truck and glanced at the clock on the dash noticed it was 9:20 pm.  I stepped out of the pickup and turned to see why the helicopter was so close or low flying.  It was coming from the northwest proceeding to the southeast.

 

To my astonishment, two large pewter gray colored craft where flying in front of the helicopter in a tight formation, one staggered to the left rear of the front pewter craft.

 

These objects were approximately 60 to 70 feet across in diameter, about 10 to 12 foot thick in the centers, the outer edges of the craft were similar to the edge of a coin like a nickel, smooth with no markings.  I would estimate the sides would be about 2 to 3 foot on the vertical measurement.  The craft made no noise whatsoever, had no markings, no windows of any type, no lights.

 

The two craft were in very tight formation.  The helicopter was all black, had no markings on the fuselage but was an Apache Helicopter.  This I know for sure, being that I am a USAF veteran and have worked on a flight line with military aircraft in my past.

 

The helicopter was about 200 yards behind the two craft, following the two objects but not trying to gain speed or overtake the objects, almost as it was tagging the objects.  The two objects remained very close to one another, about 20 to 30 yards apart, one behind the other.

 

The formation including the helicopter flew about 200 feet off the ground, very close to the tree line, the two disk flew in a straight line and maintained the tight formation. 

 

The entire clear viewing window that I had was about 20 seconds, before the formation flew behind the tree line that is behind my house.  I had a clear view of the objects from the start to finish.  The light in the sky was good being that it was in the city and over a strongly lit neighborhood.  I was about 130 yards away from the flight path of the formation.

 

Right before the helicopter went behind the tree line my wife was coming out of the house and commented to me, “What in the world is all the noise from?"  Before I could answer her, the helicopter along with the craft went behind the tree line behind the house and proceeded in a direction that took the formation away from us.

 

The best description I can give of the craft was that if you were to hold a 3 inch sugar cookie at arm’s length at about 30 degrees up and tilt it slightly that would give a good reference to the size and how I was able to see the bottom and shape, I was able to observe the craft for the full period of viewing, the disk shaped craft made no noise, very smooth, no lights, no markings, no appendages, just very smooth, pewter gray in color.

 

I came in and made a detailed drawing of the craft and event to make sure I remembered every detail. 

 

Being ex-military and having worked with aircraft, I know what I saw was a real event.

 

 

WIFE’S REPORT:

 

Here is a written report by me of the event on the 22nd.

that occurred with my husband and the objects and the helicopter.

 

Secondary witness to the event in Baton Rouge Louisiana;  July 22, 2014.

 

My husband who attends night classes at a local college called to let me know he was on his way home when he left his school.  He does this so I can put the dogs up in the house and open the gate in the driveway so he can back in with his pickup truck.  It only takes about 5 to 10 minutes for the drive home from the school. 

 

After I had gone outside and opened the gate, I went back inside the house to wait for my husband to drive in.  It was just a few minutes, maybe 5 minutes or so, when I started to hear a noise outside.  The noise continued to increase to the point that it was loud and had me concerned.

 

I knew it was the sound of a helicopter and I thought it must be flying very low over the house so I went out to see why the noise had gotten so loud.  By this point it sounded like it was right over the back of the yard at our house and I was very concerned of what was going on. 

 

I went out the back door and started walking out under our carport to investigate the noise.  I saw my husband had already backed up the driveway in his truck and was standing by the driver side rear wheels staring over the back of the property pointing and saying something out loud to me.  I could not hear what he was saying because of the noise of the helicopter. 

 

I walked rather quickly out from under the carport to see what he was pointing at and I saw a black helicopter go behind the tree line very close to the top of the trees behind our house. 

 

My husband seemed to be in shock at what he saw and kept asking me if I saw the other objects.  I did not, being that I was walking from the backdoor through the carport which is covered and it took a bit to walk from the back door out into our driveway where I could get a good view.  I did manage to see the helicopter. 

 

My husband came inside with me visibly upset by something he had seen and began explaining it to me and drawing down his sighting.  I know my husband well enough to know that if he saw something like this he would not say so without it being a real event.

 

This is what I witnessed that night.

Thank you

WEBSITE AND DATABASE UPDATED ON SUNDAY, JULY 20th, 2014

On this 45th anniversary of man’s first landing on the Moon, we update our website by posting the approximately 278 reports received by our Center, since July 11th.

In our last posting of two days ago, July 18th, we alluded to the dramatic event that had occurred over the southern tier of the U. S. on the evening of July 12th at approximately 9:10 p.m. (Central).  In our posting of tonight, July 20th, we include the approximately 65 reports NUFORC received of that incident, including one from an airline co-pilot, who was treated to a very clear view of the event out of his cockpit window. 

At the time of his sighting, his aircraft was located approximately 60 miles north of Ft. Smith, Arkansas, and was flying on a heading of 210 degrees, and at an altitude of approximately 32,000 feet.  The co-pilot estimated that the object was approximately 20 degrees above the horizon, in front of his aircraft. 

During our telephone conversation with the aviator, he emphasized how dramatic and bizarre the event was, and how rapidly the object was traveling across the sky.  He stated that he did not believe that the intensely bright object, which suddenly split into two separate objects in front of his aircraft, was a meteor, many of which he has observed from the cockpit, during his 30-year career in aviation.  He states in his report that other pilots in the area witnessed the same event, and discussed it with the Air Route Traffic Control Center.  We would like to encourage those pilots to submit additional reports, describing what they witnessed. Full Report

Here is another report of what appears to NUFORC to be the same event as the one witnessed by the co-pilot, and by many others in Texas, Louisiana, and other states.  The report arrived, just as we were in the process of updating our website, so we post it to our website, even though it does not appear in our database of sighting reports:

Date:  07/12/14

Time:  20:20  (Note:  Time subject to correction from data on telephone bill.)

Duration:  3 seconds

Sighting City:  Lafayette

Sighting State:  Louisiana

Witnesses:  1

Shape:  Light

Number of Craft:  1

Summary Description:  Brightest, fastest, thing I have ever seen in the sky; around Lafayette, Louisiana, area.

Description:  The sky was grey, just after sunset.  I was heading back to Lake Charles from Baton Rouge, after taking a state test.  Was on the phone with a friend and I saw it.  It was so bright and so fast, it was unreal. 

There was a thin cloud horizontally it was maybe ‘6 inches’ thick, in my view, but probably quite large in reality.  I saw it for about one second, going so fast into the cloud, and it split a second later, and was on the other side of the cloud within 2 to 3 seconds.  Shortly thereafter, it was out of the atmosphere.

I could tell that it was not following the curvature of the earth.  Instead, it faded into the atmosphere.  I really cannot stress how fast and how bright this thing was.

Our Center is very interested in the event of July 12th, and we would like to encourage any witnesses to it to submit a detailed report, describing their sighting.  If any of the visitors to our website elect to submit reports of the event, we would be most grateful if they would please include in the report the witness’s location; the direction he/she was looking, while facing the object; the angle of elevation to the object; how many degrees the object traveled across the sky; and in how many seconds it took for the object to cover that angle (or arc).  That will assist us in any attempt we may initiate, to calculate the velocity of the object.  Thank you!

Here is another sighting report, which just arrived from Kennebunkport, Maine, which we thought might be of interest to our visitors, given that it probably was visible from the Bush residence in Kennebunkport, Maine:

Date:  07/20/14

Time:  21:30

Duration:  2 minutes

Sighting City:  Biddeford

Sighting State:  Maine

Sighting Zip:  04005

Witnesses:  2

Shape:  Circle

Description:  Unsure if this was a UFO sighting.  There was a large red ball, high in the sky.  No tail.  It dropped straight down over about 2 minutes, in the direction of the Bush compound in Kennebunkport, Maine, and made a loud noise. 

We will update our website again, within the next several days, and will post some of the best video and still photos we have received lately

Statement posting on the evening of Sunday, July 20th, 2014.


NUFORC HOMEPAGE UPDATED ON JULY 18, 2014

We have updated the website, as of the evening of Friday, July 18, 2014.  We are very pressed for time, so we may be able to do little more than update the homepage, and leave the remainder of the posting for the weekend.  We will update the database of sighting reports either later tonight, or over the weekend. We have devoted a great deal of time to proof-reading, during the past week, trying to make sense out of many poorly written reports.  We have attempted to remove flaws and hoaxed report, but there is always the possibility that we have overlooked a few flawed reports.  If you encounter a report that appears dubious, please call it to our attention, and we will address the issue immediately.  You can send your comments to director@ufocenter.com. 

EVENT OVER THE SOUTHERN U. S. ON SATURDAY NIGHT, JULY 12TH, 2014

On Saturday night, July 12th, the night of the “super” full Moon, our Center’s telephone Hotline was deluged with reports of an event that appears to have occurred over the states of South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, and perhaps California.  The people who telephoned reported that they had witnessed at least one bright white light, which moved across the sky at very high speed.  One witness reported that the brilliantly bright object had crossed the sky, from horizon to horizon, in under 4-5 seconds, he estimated. 

A co-pilot, whose aircraft was approximately 60 miles north of Ft. Smith, Arkansas, and at an altitude of 32,000 feet, reported that the object passed from east to west in front of his aircraft at an angle of elevation of approximately 20 degrees.  The witness reported that the object suddenly split into two separate objects.  He emphasized, however, that the object was not a meteor, many of which he has witnessed during his three decades as a professional aviator.

We will post again, and update the database of recent sighting reports, within the next day or two.


NUFORC HOMEPAGE UPDATE ON FRIDAY, JULY 11TH, 2014

We have updated our website, as of this date, and have posted approximately 300 new sighting reports, submitted since July 5th.  We have posted almost 600 reports for the month of July, which reflects a rather significant increase in the number of reports that traditionally are reported during a typical calendar month. 

Approximately 360 of the 600 reports are for the period from July 3rd to July 5, which might lead those who visit our website to conclude that those reports might be related to fireworks displays on the evening of July 4th.  However, careful reading will quickly show that the individuals who submitted their reports had ruled out that possibility, before submitting their reports.

There is always the possibility that we may have overlooked errors in reports, so we invariably suggest that visitors to our site be on the lookout for 1) errors in reports, 2) hoaxed reports, 3) reports containing personal data, 4) profanity, and 5) other oversights on our part.  If you encounter a report that clearly does not address a possible sighting of an authentic UFO, please send a note to director@ufocenter.com, and we will re-inspect the report.

PETER DAVENPORT WILL HAVE TWO RADIO APPEARANCES ON FRIDAY, JULY 11TH

Peter will make his monthly appearance on the JEFF RENSE RADIO PROGRAM, hosted by Jeff Rense, appearing from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (Pacific Time Zone).  During the first hour of the program, Jeff and Peter will be accompanied by several sets of guests, who experienced the following sightings:

·         Niles, Illinois, Thursday, July 3rd, 2014, @ 23:15 hrs. (Central) - A senior Illinois Highway Patrol Officer witnessed two very prominent red spheres maneuvering in the night sky.  They maneuver  in the night sky, and apparently went streaking off.  The Officer’s electronic equipment may have been affected by the presence of the objects. Full Report

·         Harrington, Washington, Saturday, July 5th, 2014, @ 22:05 hrs. (Pacific) - Four adult witnesses, including Peter Davenport, Director, witnessed a very bright white light, seen streaking through broken clouds.  The object may have been up to from three to eleven miles’ distance from the witnesses, and it may have covered a distance of approximately three to five miles, or more, in 8-10 seconds.  Full Report

Other witnesses may be included in the program, as well, depending on their availability.

APPEARANCE ON COAST TO COAST AM WITH GEORGE NOORY

Peter Davenport will make a brief appearance on Coast to Coast AM, hosted by George Noory, at approximately 10:15 p.m., on Friday, July 11th, 2014.  Peter will discuss the large volume of sighting reports received by NUFORC, over the last week, and will address a few of the more interesting reports he has received during that time.

PHOTOGRAPHS

NUFORC has been inundated with both sighting reports, and photographs and video clips, over the last week.  Following this update of our website, we will begin to process the videos, and post the ones that we believe are the most interesting.  Most of the photographic evidence that has been sent to our Center pertains to clusters of red and orange “fireballs,” a phenomenon that we have striven to bring to the attention of the world’s community, over recent years. In the meantime, we post below a few of the better photos, together with their associated reports:

Seattle, Washington, Friday, July 4th, 2014, @ 22:00 hrs. (Pacific) - A woman, who is a professional musician, her son, and her aunt all witness the same peculiar red/orange lights in the night sky, from three different locations, before the Lake Union fireworks display, and capture the photo below.  Full Report

S111216

 

 

 

Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, on Saturday, July 5th, 2014, @ 22:15 hrs. (Eastern) - A woman reports having witnessed two red lights streaking across the night sky.  She captured the photo below with her cell phone.  Full Report

Late-Breaking Case:  Just as we were finishing updating the website, a sighting report arrived from Rothesay, New Brunswick, Canada, which appears to be so nicely prepared, we thought we would make a special effort to post it with this update, even though it does not yet appear in the posted database of sighting reports.  It will appear in our database of cases when we next update it.

 

Date: 7/10/2014

Time:  21:45

Duration: 2 minutes (approx..)

Sighting City:  Rothesay

Sighting State:  NB

Sighting Zip:  E2E 1W6

Sighting Country:  Canada

Sighting County:  New Brunswick

Witnesses:  3

Shape:  Fireball

Number of Craft:  2

Two bright orange fiery balls flying overhead as family star gazes on deck; one disappears and becomes see through.

Description: The first object was of a giant fireball-like object moving across the sky at a speed similar to the speed of the space station.  It was not a meteorite because it was way too large, didn't have a tail and didn't burn out.  It was not a plane because it didn't not have blinking lights and there was a plane flying overhead shortly afterwards.  It made a sound like a low thrum.  It made the dogs nervous and they started growling.

The second one came, heading in a different direction, less than a minute after the first one disappeared over the horizon.  It flew overhead and then disappeared, but we could still see the shape blocking out the light of the stars overhead as it moved across the sky.  It was not quite shimmery, but kind of like it looked reflective or see through.  It made the same sound until it went see “through.”  Then it was silent.

Very strange!  We tried to film it.  It should have shown on the video as it was so large, but we have no video footage, even though our voices were heard.  The sound did get picked up, however.  We would like to know if any satellite or space debris has been reported breaking up in the atmosphere.  We've never seen anything like it and we love to star gaze on clear nights.

We will update the site again, within the next several days, and will attempt to post some of the better video clips we have received of interesting sightings.
