UFO Flap In Virginia After Stanley A. Fulham Prediction

In mid September, a retired NORAD Officer, Stanley A. Fulham, new book predicted a worldwide UFO display on October 13, 2010 and on October 13th, mysterious shiny objects floating over Manhattan spark UFO frenzy.

This mass UFO sighting was credited to balloons that had escaped an engagement party, even though the descriptions, videos, and photos by the witnesses did not match a group of balloons.

On October 12th, a UFO the ‘size of a Cessna’ was seen floating 100 feet off the highway near Newport News, Virginia. The witness describes the encounter in MUFON Case # 25864.

But I looked at the object in great detail. It was not a chopper. Then I thought it may be a fighter jet standing still in air..But as I drove past it, I find the shape to be amusing. It has features extending below its body like a stand, several of them and there were lights around them. I am certain that it was not a fighter jet due to its peculiar shape.

The next day, October 13th, a floating ‘black box’ was reported to MUFON, again from a Virginia resident.

My wife and I were cleaning up after dinner. She was emptying the dishwasher, stood up and said “What’s that?” pointing to a green light between the leyland cypress trees in our back yard. I saw the light, stepped over to the door and out onto the back porch. Dark night. I thought a plane was landing in the field, or maybe a helicopter. The light passed our trees and was behind the neighbor’s house as another green light appeared between the trees. This green light had a red flashing light adjacent to it. I stepped off of the porch and hurried over to the neighbor’s fence where there were no trees so I could get a better look. Looked at my blackberry, it was 8:10 PM. Something wasn’t making sense – and I realized there was no sound. Nothing like a plane 100 yards away. Certainly nothing like a helicopter flying by 100 yards away. I watched both of the lights and it just didn’t register. There was a long black box between the 2 sets of lights. Maybe 100 to 150 feet long. If it was an airplane after the front of it passed I shouldn’t have been able to see the front lights but I still could. Later I wondered if the lights were on one side. Whatever it was it was moving rapidly. Within a minute it was out of sight. I emailed my neighbors to ask if anyone else had seen it but so far I can find no one that has.

UFOs were seen over Richmond, Virginia for up to four hours on October 16th and 17th.
 

Richmond and Henrico County have a history of UFO activity, with documented sightings dating back to 1947 and 1966.

UFO Over North Carolina

A North Carolina man is reporting a low flying, odd-shaped “very quiet” UFO on May 28, 2010. He estimates the object was just 50 feet off of the ground.

Honestly, the illustration (below) is my favorite part.

MUFON Case # 23675

decription, draw a triangle on paper then draw a nother one about an inch beside it, no connect the points from the first to the second one,,draw three circles on the first one inside the triangle near the points.now draw one on the bottom where you connected the to lower triangle points,. now imagine that flying 50 ft above your head, very quiet, only a whisper, like jetsons ship in the cartoon almost.

STORY-
i was headed to pick my girl up from work, around 10:30, and out the side of my eye i seen this object floating by, so i looked up and i seen (what I described aboved, it was very low, and i knew it wasnt a plane or helicopter cause planes dont fly that low and both the plane and helicopter are loud, this was whisper quiet,i wasnt thinking bout the digital camera in my car, because it was the first time i had ever seen , a UFO, cause it has to be unidentified, it wasnt a blimp either.

Anonymous Youtube Users Impersonating MUFON

I’m not sure how I missed this little UFO drama at the end of last year.

It seems several Anonymous youtube users had been impersonating MUFON in an unfortunate slander campaign against a fellow youtube user.

Mark Easter, MUFON’s International Director of Public Relations sets the story straight about recent youtube misconduct (they have an International Director of Public Relations?).

Keep reporting your sighting to MUFON, of course you can phone them in to us at (571) 24WEIRD also.

UFOs Over Iowa Thanksgiving Night

A series of UFO sightings over Western Iowa have been reported to the MUFON UFO database from Thanksgiving Night, Thursday November 26th 2009.

Case Number: 20743
From Shenandoah, Iowa

On Thanksgiving night a little after 6 p.m,I took the garbarge out and noticed how clear the sky was, a half-moon and a few stars. Going back to the house I looked straight up and noticed two stars, or what I thought were stars. But as I watched more closely it was obvious they were moving to the Southeast. I went in the house and told my wife to go see the lights while I grabbed the video camera. I would guess their altitude to be about 2000 to 5000 ft., although there was nothing to compare the lights with to judge a more correct distance. There was quite a lot of distance between both objects. The lead light was much brighter than the one following. Since it was dark we couldn’t tell if there was anything connecting them. The lights were a solid white & not blinking. The sighting lasted about two minutes. Since this sighting I’ve looked at other Mufon reports and found several reporting the same type thing, only a day earlier and traveling in different directions.

Case Number: 20756
From Fort Dodge Iowa

I was outsrightide having a cigarette and noticed a brighwwt object coming from the nw heading se i watched it as it moved slowy across the sky at about 1o to 15000 feet whenit got to the sw portion of the sky all of a sudden there was a bright circular light which was huge around the main light then a small object shot out of the bright light and shot upward and dissapered then the large object disapered in about two seconds

Case Number: 20759
From Sioux Falls, SD

Three of us, were out back facing south @ about 6pm. I looked up and saw a bright light heading in a SE direction. I pointed it out to my Uncle, and we noticed a second smaller one to the left and trailing the brighter one. Shotly after noticing the second one, we realized a third. It too, was to the left, but further. Position was in front of the second one. They all seem to be moving at a fast and constant speed. There were no red and green flashing light associated with them. Altituted, I’m not sure. The bright one was pretty bright. Brighter than any airplane I’ve seen around here. The other ones were dim. I went inside aftter they left our sight, to track were the space shuttle was, because I new it was landing soon. It was nowhere near Iowa at the time in question. I’m not one to report things like this, but this was a real head scratcher!!!!!!!!!!!!

Several nights before, two reports from East of there in Northern Illinois

Case Number: 20745
Event Date: 2009-11-24
From: Peoria Illinois

I was driving SW Washington Street in Peoria, IL. I saw it while I was slowly driving 800m from Mc Arthur Highway till I reach State Street. First, I found a plane looking thing flying above in front of me through my car window. I started thinking weird and looked at it again because it had different looking from the plane, had round two lights in front and back of its underneath. I kept on driving, slowed down and looked at it again and found out that it did not have wings and it was flat like a disc!! I could ot believe that I am looking at a UFO and I kept on driving and looking at it. It was flying slowly from my left to right. I thought it was gone but it stopped there and stayed above my front right sky for a while! I wanted to take a photo but I couldn’t beause I was driving. It seemed like totally free from gravity. I found some spot to park and then it moved quickly zigzag, and then flew to my left front sky, and it disappeared. After that, 3minutes later a helicopter came, made a loud noise even it was higher than that UFO. UFO did not make any sound at all. It was oval, tatolly flat. Black bottom with two yellow lights with some red line, one in front and one at back but I cannot tell which is front because it moved any ways.

Case Number: 20742
Event Date: 2009-11-25 21:35 GMT
From: City: Bradley, Illinois

This is not a joke. My girlfriend was driving us to the movies lastnight on november 25 2009. We were west bound on 4000 a few miles or so from route 50 in bradly,Il. We were on our way to see the fourth kind and thats why I said this aint a joke. Any way as we travled down 4000 directed west she pointed out to me in the north west sky what appeared to be fire. The blaze appeared to be out of control burning high into the sky for the distance we saw it from. A tree line momentarly obstructed our view but then we saw it again and as we drew closer the flames only appeared to be lights verticle lights with a strange redish orange glow inside them that also illuminated around them. At this point we were just talking how we no longer see a fire just this stack of lights and we only travled a few miles from our first view and it was directly north of us at this point. There were lights on the ground but I thought it was a small subdividion or something. I could night specifically describe any real structures to you because it was very dark and cloudy last night. Well at this point we were pulling into the movie theater lot. We just decided to see the movie still wondering what we just saw. When we left the movie we noticed there really isn’t any houses in that field or tall building with lights or anything at all. There is a wal-mart and other stores to the left but we were not looking in the that direction. I went by there again today in the light and the field is a gulf course and then farm no houses or barns for miles nothing that could have made flames that high if they were flames but by judging the color of that stack of lights that was verticle maybe in a distance could have appeared to be fire in the sky? Me and my girlfriend were in the car again today and agree there is nothing in that area that could explain what we saw. I asked her if she saw the movie fire in the sky because I did not see it yet! I said did anything appear as fire in that movie and she told me only at a distance because of the color of the lights on the ufo in that movie but you wouldn’t be able to convince me or her we didin’t see a sighting.

More July 4th 2009 Reports Of UFOs

Over two weeks later and reports of UFOs from July 4th 2009 continue to be posted.

I still haven’t heard of any main stream media even touching the subject.
Robert Marsh of www.examiner.com posted July 4th UFO comments chime in from 14 states. He noticed the rash of sightings on Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) and got many comment reporting on UFOs on July 4th. It would have been nice for him to link to WhalesInSpace.com, its hard not to find the site right now if you are doing a Google search of July 4th 2009 UFOs.

This comment was posted today and caught my attention.

I live in Kansas City, MO. On july 4th 2009 my girlfriend and I both saw an orange ball of light in midtown KC.
We were driving when we first saw it and pulled over to get a better look. This was no firework and this was no chinese lantern. There was a low cloud deck that night. The ball was lower than the clouds which allowed us to get a good look.
The object was actually a black sphere with orange fire rolling around it. It started in the western skies at maybe thirty degrees. It slowly moved until it was directly in front of us (south) and then it ascended into the clouds.
This incident has changed my perspective entirely. I am the president of the engineering department at a local university. I dont believe in spacemen or leprechans or jesus or any of that which has no proof.
But I saw something on july 4th 2009.

And another from Lynnwood, Washington, sent in by email

It was after the fireworks had stopped for the night at our house in Lynnwood, Wa. My boyfriend and I were outside on the back deck when we saw a bright red light coming up on the horizon (NE). It was moving as fast as a satellite/airplane would accross the sky. The light was very easy to see and bright, but there was no definite outline to it. It was a circular shape, but the light almost looked like a laser would with blurred edges. The center of the red light was bright yellow/orange and looked exactly like a star except was a bit larger and closer, definately in the atmosphere. As it slowly moved accross the sky and over our house, my boyfriend was running to get his cell phone so we could take a picture when we saw a second, orange, light coming from the same place the first did. The light flew from the NE direction SE, and they both followed the same path and faded away into the night.

These were moving too quickly to be anything but a powered object, and were moving in a definate direction at a constant speed.

Below are two videos sent in by a UFO witness from Tamaqua, Pennsylvania, about 45 miles North West of Bethlehem Pennsylvania where the first sightings came from.

I haven’t even heard any one really give a good go at the Orange Balls of Light Chinese Lantern Theory (ORBLCLT)?
I guess if it was picked up by the media, someone could say they saw their neighbor releasing Chinese Lanterns, but not a peep.

I’m sticking behind my giant flying bioluminescent dinosaurs theory for now.
