May, 2000

Location:

Port Aransas, Texas, United States

Summary:

My brother and I were sitting on the porch of a beach house in Port Aransas looking out towards the Gulf of Mexico. At the exact same time, we both saw a dark speeding object fly quickly and silently down the beach line from our left to right going south about 40 feet off of the ground until we could no longer see it.

Full Description & Details

My family had a tradition of going to Port Aransas Texas, located about 30 miles north of Corpus Christi on Mustang Island, every year during summer break where we stayed at the same beach house. We did this every year from 1992 to 2000. The beach house was located approximately 150 yards from the shoreline of the Gulf of Mexico. It had a second-story balcony where we spent countless hours looking out towards the Gulf of Mexico. We would watch large ships coming into the Port and generally enjoy people watching and lounging on the balcony. The last summer that we spent there my brother and I witnessed something that we could not explain. It was approximately 12:30 a.m. in the morning and we were on the balcony looking out towards the Gulf of Mexico. At the exact same time, we both saw a unidentified flying objecto flying south down the beach line about 40 feet off of the ground traveling down the beach line. It seemed almost like a silent speeding black aircraft at first, but there were no lights and no sound and traveling very fast. We had seen Coast Guard helicopters flying during the day and night patrolling the beach, but this was traveling much faster and lower and without any sound at all. It traveled from the left to our right and we both looked at each other right after it left our sight and we couldn't believe what we had just seen. We couldn't explain it. I've never seen anything or experienced anything like that in my entire life. We hypothesized to each other that it was some type of military aircraft that had to have been top-secret since it made no sound and displayed no lights. It was truly a UFO. We had no idea what we had just witnessed.

Full Description & Details

ok, so this is waay back when i was about 7, so in other words, nobody believed me. even the girl i saw it with doesnt remember. anyway, this girl had just moved into the nieghborhood, so she was having a welcome party. it was around 7 or so, and we were outside looking up in the sky. it was a really pretty color, like cerulean blue. as soon as i told my friend this, we saw a black circle shaped craft with four smaller yellow circles underneath it fly over us silently and quickly. we looked at each other in fear, and ran inside. we tried to tell people what happened, but of course, nobody believed us. we ended up convincing ourselves that it didnt really happen, and i ended up sleeping over her house. we lost contact, and im pretty sure she thinks what she saw was fake. but i believe what i saw. im sorry i dont have any more info on this. thanks though.

Bright lights, green, red and white. moving very fast back and forth. You can see that there were two objects in the sky. They did not move at all from there spot. I first thought it was an airplane, because there was an army plane coming in from the same location but not as high. The plane moved closer to our house then finally over the house. The lights just stayed in the same spot. This is not the first time my son and I saw these lights. Back in August around 11 P.M. the same lights but only one object in the night sky.

We go to Pine Bush NY,about 15 times a year and never have gone there without seeing something...from vessels the size of footballs, Volkswagens to huge round ones....we have see strange gas balls too we call them, you cant see them with the naked eye but look thru binoculars and there they are, often 4 to 5.....we turned a corner one evening, 3 cars, and a ship the size of a Volkswagen took off about the height of telephone poles down the street and then turned left very fast, there were about 9 people in 3 cars, at least 2 in each saw it and saw it a bit different in size........once we were driving and I could not get my car to stay to the right, the fellow with me said ''bob get on the right side of the road, what do you think I am trying to do I asked...finally the gut behind us was blowing his horn, we pulled over, he said my car was lit up as if a search light were on it, later the next day by battery and alternator were burnt out,thre car was 3 months old, it happened again 2 months later and near the same road....we once watched as this huge white light coming from what looked to be a round ship would rise from the woods and go left and right then go down when aircraft approached, then come up. we had trouble looking at it as it was so bright, we couldn't hear any noise coming from it and it was about 1/4 mile away in a field with tree cover, we could not get to it, to dark and we didn't know the area, we all saw a figure in what looked to be the only window.......we have been going to Pine Bush for 5 years at least and always, always see things.......Robert deininger rd1064@aol.com I hate writing and cant type sorry

Witness Background

I work with Billy DEE and and don schmidt who are responsible for this...ROSWELL PROOF What really happened Telegram held in General Ramey's hand provides smoking gun proof of a "disk" crash and the recovery of "the victims of the wreck" Copyright ©2001 by David Rudiak Roswell Case Overview The Public "Roswell Incident" On July 8, 1947 at 5:26 EDT, an Associated Press news wire announced that Roswell Army Air Field had reported recovering a "flying disk" from a nearby rancher's property, first found "sometime last week," and that it was being flown to "higher headquarters." The curious base press release triggered a national press feeding frenzy. Later "higher headquarters" was announced to be Brig. Gen. Roger Ramey, head of the 8th Army Air Force at Fort Worth, Texas. The Roswell 509th Bomb Group was a subcommand of the 8th AAF. It was also announced that the recovered "disk" was eventually destined for Wright Field, Ohio, home of the Air Materiel Command and the AAF's aeronautical research labs. Within about an hour of the press release, Gen. Ramey began putting out an alternate weather balloon version of the story. And about two hours later, the photo at the above right was taken of Gen. Ramey (crouched down) and his Chief of Staff, Col. Thomas Dubose (seated). Ramey repeated his story that what was recovered at Roswell was nothing more than the remains of a weather balloon and its aluminum foil radar target kite shown displayed on the general's office floor. Later Ramey brought in a weather officer to make the identification official. The press bought the change of story. Just to make sure, the Army and Navy engaged in a debunking campaign during the following days which involved weather balloon and radar target demonstrations. The weather balloons, the public was told, explained not only what was found at Roswell, but also accounted for the numerous "flying disk" or "flying saucer" sightings that preceded the Roswell events. Air Force Changes Its Story This was the official story for the next 47 years until constituents asked Congressman Steven Schiff of New Mexico to look into it. After getting what he thought was the run-around from the Air Force, Schiff in 1994 asked the Congressional General Accounting Office (GAO) to investigate, forcing the Air Force to amend its old weather balloon story. Now it wasn't just any weather balloon. It was supposedly a top secret Mogul balloon made up of multiple weather balloons and radar targets and launched from nearby Alamogordo, N.M. Three years later, just in time for Roswell's 50th anniversary, one of the USAF counter- intelligence agents involved in the earlier report issued an additional "Case Closed" report on the stories of bodies being recovered. According to him, the reports of bodies were nothing more than highly distorted memories of "crash dummies" used in ejection tests carried out in New Mexico during the 1950's. FACTOID 2: Recent attempts by several investigators using the Freedom of Information Act to get a copy of the actual photoanalysis report cited by the Air Force (but never published) has met with responses that they have no idea what became of it. Read the details of the runaround the Air Force gave one investigator as they bounced him from archive to archive for the last 3 years. Why can't the Air Force find their own Roswell report? Why do they still refuse to disclose the identify of the photoanalysis lab? GEN. RAMEY'S MEMO FACTOID 1: The Air Force claimed in their 1994/95 Roswell Report that a government photoanalysis lab which they refused to identify ("a national level organization") was unable to "visualize" any "details" in the Ramey memo from first generation prints and negative copies even after digitizing (computer scanning) supposedly because of "insufficient quality." As you look at higher resolution scans readily available to civilians from similar prints, how much "truth" do you suspect was in the Air Force statement? Ramey Message Summary -- "Disk" and "Victims" found The message turns out to be a telegram from Gen. Ramey to the Pentagon and Gen. Hoyt Vandenberg, the acting AAF Chief of Staff at the time. Ramey is providing Vandenberg an update on the very fluid situation in-the-field at Roswell. The first paragraph describes what had been found. Ramey starts by acknowledging "THAT A 'DISK' IS NEXT NEW FIND." He then adds that "THE VICTIMS OF THE WRECK" and something else (possibly just "A WRECK") had also been found near the recovery "OPERATION AT THE 'RANCH'." At the end it states that "YOU" (i.e. Gen. Vandenberg) had ordered the "victims" and/or the wreckage "FORWARDED" to "FORT WORTH, TEX." In the second paragraph, Ramey describes how the situation was being handled. Ramey first states that something "IN THE 'DISC'", probably the bodies of the "forwarded" "victims" (and possibly termed "AVIATORS") would be flown by a B-29 Special Transport or C-47 to the "A1" (personnel director) of some "8TH ARMY****" division, most likely the head flight surgeon at Fort Worth given the context. Wright Field, Ohio, home of the AAF's aeronautical labs, was to assess the Roswell crash object (possibly referred to as an "AIRFOIL"). Finally Ramey outlines how the situation was being treated publicly and how they were going to cover it up. First he assures Vandenberg that the earlier highly inflammatory Roswell base press release (referred to as the "MISSTATE MEANING OF STORY") was the work of an Army counter-intelligence team ("CIC/TEAM"), but that the "NEXT SENT OUT PR" (Press Release) would be "OF WEATHER BALLOONS." Ramey finishes with the statement that the weather balloon story might be better accepted if they also added weather balloon radar target demonstrations. This apparently was the impetus for the national debunking campaign using the devices that followed over the next few days.

I'm not BSing about this. I am pasting an email I sent off to my friend soon after the sighting. Actually pasting two emails.

Email 1 -

hey

i gave her the cd this morning and she right away said "aww, john made it?"

and she was happy to get it for her long ride to lasalle this morning ~ 0530

onto the no lie

as she went outside she called me out to look at the stars quickly with her.

clear skies. loaded with stars. she saw the tiny 5 star constellation that

always reminded me of a micro little dipper saying she never saw that here

in america only in lithuania.

i said i see it a lot and she said "i see a shooting star" and i said no,

that's a plane way up there...i mean WAY up where the thing was moving too

slow to be a shooting star and then it did something unexpected.

the freaking thing was traversing near the small constellation of 5 stars

(and how she didn't notice is beyond me) where it suddenly began to make a

concise half loop, travelling back in the same direction it started, sort of

a big U turn! I swear! It wasn't the slow meandering turn of a plane

either and i know i saw this happen.

a little bit later as i stood there as she got into her car to leave i saw

another quicker flash of a space object shoot by this constellation. this

appeared more like a shooting star but my fixation on the unusual, former

pattern had me almost as transfixed. the cold outside made me get in the

house shortly after.

my father just woke up and i told him. he said, ya know what that is? i

interjected "a satelite?" he said, a satelite.

I just don't know...

Email2 -(first friends response to above email, then my reply follows after)

My second response-

do you think a satelite would loop so definitively? I can't phathom what I

saw but it was the eeriest I EVER felt seeing a peculiarity in the sky. Do

you happen to know what the tiny constellation (5 stars) that resembles a

tiny dipper is, Mr. Horkheimer? : )

I am not a drug or alcohol imbiber.

I believe I am of very sound mind and have excellent vision. Better than my wife who is 30/20 or something like that and she couldn't follow the pattern like I did. My last eye exam was normal 20/20 and I have great visual concentration.

Full Description & Details

Last Saturday I was at Royal Australian Air Force base at Amberley watching the model planes before the big guns came out. I saw past a model plane and spotted a clear sphere in the direction of Denmark Hill as viewed from a little north of the old control tower e\west of the main strip. It seemed far away and was traveling east-South East straight and level flight. Its size was 3mm diameter as measured with the fingers at full arms length. Its height was about 20 degree above horizon. Its appearance was of a glass ball in that I could see the complete spherical outline with the left side being slightly brighter. This agrees with where the sun was (not sure of the time as I did not take my watch that day, however the program (I have a copy) states that the model aircraft were on from 10:41am to 11:05am.



Here is more on the actual sequence and timing of my observation:



Spotted it while looking at a model (large model, 1-2 meters across) from a distance of about 50 meters.

I stopped following the model (from left to right) and watched it intently for about 5-8 seconds and then I deliberately looked away while closing and rolling my eyes.

Looked back – could not see it straight away: perfectly clear sky – nothing to focus on anywhere so I strained and then I caught it (10 seconds later) again, now it was smaller and seemed further away and was blending into the blue of the sky.

It only dawned on me then that I had my 35mm SLR and a 200mm lens with me so I quickly opened the bag, fitted the 200mm (took about 15 seconds) looked up and tried and tried to see it again but could not. I raised the camera up and looked through the lens (only slight advantage for the eyes in object size but screens out side light) but to no avail.



What a bummer! If only I had prepared my camera upon arrival I reckon I would have caught it and at a size that would blow up nicely!





My feelings are as follows:

It was not a balloon due to its straight and determined flight path, its speed, and its size which is difficult for me to work out though it gave me the immediate impression that it was large, say 3 plus meters across. This impression was formed due to my experience of observing aircraft at altitude and distance (ex RAAF and keen follower of Air Force displays) and my rather good view over the Amberley area from my street in Sadliers Crossing.

It seemed rigid – as if it was a solid globe structure.

It did not immediately cause me to think it was unusual as I have seen much in the way of junk flying around in the sky especially paper and plastic bags! It was the fact that it was so straight and purposeful in flight that grabbed my interest.





Logical answers.? Nuh. Can’t think of any. And I’ll tell you what it reminded me of, early in the peace - that footage of the ball flying across the fields in the crop circles documentary that is available on DVD! Except the object I saw was much clearer than the one as presented on that DVD and traveled dead straight!



That’s it!!!

like a glass fishing bouy, spherical, clear and thick glass. It flew straight as a dye. the air show was over Saturday and Sunday and 75,000 attended. Youo could think that it was a device checking out the activities which were much greater than is normal. It is our F111 base also with F/A 18 Hornets, C130, Hawks, P-3 Orions, Seahawk choppers etc and Caribous but there were many more different aircraft there for the two days.

Full Description & Details

Eran las 02:45 am, cuando una luz, muy tenue, se encontraba sobre un cerro la cual me causo cuidado por la hora que era.

Le indique a mi compañero que habia una luz sobre el cerro, y que podia ser un camion, que sepodia caer, ya que se encontraba muy cerca del borde de este. Cuando derrepente esta luz comenzo a moverse y empezo como a bajar hacia la falda del cerro, y yo exclame ¡ se va a caer! , cuando esta luz, de un solo golpe, volvio a la punta del cerro....

Todos los que en ese momento estabamos mirando, que ya eran 20 aprox. nos quedamos mirando unos a otros sin dar explicacion a lo que pasaba. Cuando otra vez comendo a hacer el mismo movimiento esta luz extraña.

Esto paso aproximadamente 3 veces, y depronto cuando comenzaba a hacer el mismo movimiento, para nuestra sorpresa comenzo a avanzar hacia nosotros y algunos se asustaron mucho , al grado que querian retirarse del lugar donde nos encontrabamos trabajando, apagamos las luces del taller y fue una gran sorpresa ver la forma eliptica que tenia esta luz que depronto cambio de forma.

Aproximadamente este objeto media unos 25 metros y se encontraba a uno 500 metros de nosotros, esto lo se por que tuve instruccion militar por mas de dos años.

tenia un movimiento ocilante, osea que nunca estuvo detenido en el aire completamente.

Cuando estabamos observando este objeto en todo su esplendor, comenzaron a sonar una especie de motores muy fuerte, como turbinas, y nos causo cuidado ya que este objeto no metio bulla en ningun momento, y fue mas sorpresa cuando aparecieron dos aviones caza de la fuerza aerea, ya que nos encontrabamos muy cerca de la base aerea de cerro moreno, aqui en Antofagasta. El objeto hizo un movimiento muy brusco hacia el norte y luego hacia el sur, como buscando algo, y luego desaparecio frente a nosotros con un movimiento hacia arriba dejando una especie de rocio callendo como gotas de agua de color calipso y violeta.

Full Description & Details

I remember leaving the station after work, and glancing up at the Tribune tower for a simple "time check". The evening was crisp, and the low cloud cover was spotty. The first thing i saw was two red lights about the size of softballs, spaced wide apart and connected to a very dark "thinnish" shape of some sort. .. long, thin, and "certainly thinner than an airplane or helicoter ought to be".. i remember thinking.

I continued walking to the car, while looking up at the Tribune tower clock..and when i reached the car (an old grey, late 50's Nash Rambler, a loaner, from the husband of long time Bay Area newsperson Belva Davis)..i stopped with my hand on the drivers side door handle, and watched the following event..

....The "UFO" seemed to be "playing a game" of trying to balance itself on some " invisible fulcrum point", some 100-200 feet above the American flag. After about three minutes, the vehicle (it was a solid object) seemed to "slip" out of it's "balance perch"..and began to rock back and forth in a falling leaf fashion...as it did, it began to rock faster and faster until it resembled a giant sized " baby's cradle" rocking so fast in the air until the spotlight illuminating the American flag, made the UFO look like a half moon.. floating just above the Tribune building!

...the rocking began to slow down after about 50 seconds...the "half moon effect ended soon after, ...the red lights on both ends turned off, and the now dark shaped

object began to slowly drift off in a south easterlydirection, in a direction i fgured that would take it over the Nimitz freeway, and in the general direction of the city of Alameda.

Seeing the UFO moving, i decided to follow it... as best i could, i kept it in view until i and the object, reached an area where the Alameda tunnel (northward to Oakland ) becomes Harrson street. I got out of the car and watched as it aproached, slowly, and completely dark, and floated silently over a small city park which at that time had a couple of old railroad cars . The underside looked "like the belly of a whale"!.. all of which made no "physical sense".. based on what i had just seen moments earlier!, "up closer" this object looked nowhere near as "nimble" as it had before!

The UFO was huge! easily as big around as a large submarine, but not as bulbous as the Goodyear blimp. It was completely silent...the only noise i heard in the Harrison street / Alameda tube area at the time was the sound of a passing locomotive somewhere close by. The object drifted overhead and over the Nimitz freeway...i lost track of the UFO at that point. I then drove over to the Alameda end of the Posey tube hoping to see it again, but i never did.

Full Description & Details

I have a piece of land (about 18 acres) at Talca , 3.5 h from Santiago where I have my horses. I carried that a sony video camara to film my new born colt, when my land helper and I were walking to film the new colt (because my wife and daughter couldn't come abut they want to know him), I saw at the sky a rare object and started flilming until was gone. When I pass to a big video to show my wife and daughter, and playing with the slow motion effect, it is possible to visualize a romboid shape with a light bulb at each corner. I check by internet if someone had saw something similar and a person from Oklahoma reported on September of that year the same thing I filmed.

Witness Background

I am a molecular biologust graduated at Yale. I have my own biotechnology company oriented to develop products for the salmon industry. Married and one daughter.
