READING -- Stan Gordon received a report from woman who told him
how her son ran into the house very excited.  He described a
silver disk flying high in the sky on August 16, 1999.  Stan
interviewed the boy who had been outside watching some birds
flying around, when his attention was drawn to a silver disk
shaped object above him and high in the sky.  The object
appeared motionless at 2:12 PM.  The young man stated, he could
see what looked like a figure U that was dark green in color at
the bottom of the disk.  The object zoomed off at a high rate of
speed towards the South with a low rumble.  During July and
August, there has been an apparent surge in UFO sighting
activity being reported around the state. The National UFO
Reporting Center lists numerous reports that they have received,
many are from eastern sections of the state.  These include
numerous colored lights and odd beams illuminating the sky in
Indiana County.  A woman near Pittsburgh reports that a silent
wide beam of light suddenly appeared above her and projected
downward, illuminating the inside of her vehicle.  She
immediately got out of the car, but could not see anything that
could account for the source of the bright beam.  BUTLER COUNTY
-- Stan Gordon reports a second daylight observance of a UFO on
August 16, 1999, has been reported north of Pittsburgh.  A
married couple were relaxing in a swimming pool at about 5:45
PM.  The man noticed in the eastern sky, a circular object that
appeared to be of a dull gray metallic color.  The object was
high in the sky and was quite small when first observed.  During
the next few minutes as the couple watched, the object moved
west towards their direction over Butler, but remained at a high
altitude.  As the object got closer, it became larger and more
detail could be seen.  The couple could see that there were
actually two round or circular objects that appeared to be
joined together side by side, but giving the impression that
they were individual objects.  The objects were "like quarters
on edge" and they appeared thin with little depth.  The sun did
not appear to reflect off the devices.  As the couple continued
to watch, the objects suddenly stopped, then made a sharp 90
degree turn towards the North and moved behind a tree blocking
the view of the observers. They continued to look waiting for
the objects to emerge from behind the tree, but this never
occurred.  Thanks to: Stan Gordon, PA UFO Hotline: 724-838-7768

John Combest writes concerning the case Vince Creevy and Derrel
Sims discussed last week, concerning possible repeated
abductions.  I read about these folks with the stains on their
hands.  Since the occurrence of the stains has been somewhat
repetitive with Rick and seems to be only on his hands, I formed
the notion that Rick is not getting his hands into the staining
material because of what the abductors are doing to him, but
what they are having him do to someone else or something.  In
other words, he is being used to accomplish some task which
subjects him to the staining material.  Sounds like a real ripe
case for regression.  Just a thought.  Thanks to: John Combest
jecombest@worldnet.att.net CLIFTON ­ I returned the call of
another possible abductee on August 23, 1999.  He informed me
that he had been abducted last night and was regularly visited
by several kinds of alien beings.  We are attempting to
establish a support group in Northern New Jersey to investigate
these cases in more detail. SUSSEX COUNTY -- Frank Gussie
reports he witnessed a triangular UFO in the summer of 1968.  I
was 11 years old at the time.  It came over the trees maybe 200
feet up and flew over me and disappeared toward the Delaware
River. It was a bright shiny silver gray in color.  I called my
family but they came out too late.  We had the house in
Hainesville, NJ at the time and we were on rural dirt road.  I
had not seen or heard of any more triangular shaped UFOs until I
was watching Sightings on Fox television about a similar Russian
UFO thus validating my sighting.  Thanks to Frank Gussie


MANITOWOC - UFO investigator Joe Trainor who is moving to Duluth
writes In June we had another "Lake Michigan Triangle" incident.
An excursion boat vanished ten miles east of Manitowoc,
Wisconsin.  Yes, that's the same Manitowoc where the weird white
critter showed up last year. The Coast Guard swept the lake
bottom with sonar, but there was no sign of wreckage.  Thanks to
Joe Trainor.


CHICAGO ­ On August 14, 1999, a father and two young children
went sailing on Lake Michigan on a hot summer day.  They have
been missing since then.  Their sailboat was fond after an
intensive air and sea search.  The sailboat was found drifting
several days later twenty-five miles northeast of Chicago.  The
craft was still in good condition with the main mast stowed.
All three occupants were missing.  Editor's Note: The entire
Great Lakes are known for frequent UFO sightings and strange


YUKON -- S. Ritter e-mail states, "As I stopped at the stop
light at 1st Street and Vandement on March 22, 1999, I witnessed
a strange cigar-shaped object.  "It was flying along and then it
stopped for a second or two, then it took off again heading
east."  I could see that both of the ends of this strange
looking craft were round without wings.  Later, the same evening
around 11:00 PM, I was making my rounds checking to make sure
all of our doors were locked.  I saw out of the corner of my
eye, that there was something or someone standing behind my
husband's desk chair where he sits to do his office work.  This
thing was just watching me.  It was dark gray in color and a
little taller than my 6 year old son.  It had a big head, and a
small body and it was wearing a black robe.  When I turned
around quickly, it was gone.  The being really startled me.  I
thought perhaps it was my son playing a trick, but when I went
to see if it was him, he was sound asleep.  Since I have seen
these strange craft, and this being, I cannot let my guard down.
There is something and someone out there.  Thank to S. Ritter of


KAILISPELL -- On the evening of August 9, 1997, I happened to
look up, towards the West.  It was cloudless, and the sun had
been down for a while, so there was just a thin band of light on
the western horizon.  Something came out of the west, going very
fast, and as it arrived overhead, I saw its underside quite
clearly.  It was shaped like a short, blunt triangle, with sides
that bulged outward slightly.  It was colored a dirty gold, and
from the back was streaming three short thin lines of exhaust.
They were very evenly spaced.  It was traveling very straight,
as it was holding the same altitude and there was no curve to
its path at all.  The exhaust was the same color as the object
but just a bit brighter, and I thought at the time it might be
that color because of its altitude -- maybe high enough to catch
sunlight?  I saw no lights. The object was about 1/2 the size of
a full moon. Because of it's speed, it was only visible for
perhaps 6 or 7 seconds.  Malmstrom AFB lies just on the other
side of the Rockies from us.  Thanks to  kubac@digisysnet .


VANCOUVER, BC -- Bill Oliver UFO*BC reports that on May 19,
1999, Ladner Jordan was looking out his bedroom window when he
viewed a triangular object in the southwest sky at 2:30 AM.  It
was moving very slowly to the northwest. It would periodically
change position from left to right.  The lights on the object
were flashing in a rotating manner, and there was no sound
discernible.  Jordan estimates that the craft was at an
elevation of 2000 feet.  He watched the object until 4:00 AM.
VANCOUVER -- Mike was looking towards the south, watching a
plane flying below the clouds, heading west towards the airport
on June-7, 1999.  Suddenly, a silver disc-like object dropped
out of the clouds into a clear blue patch of sky behind and to
the east of the plane at 12:10 PM.  The object remained
stationary while the plane continued westward.  After about 5 10
seconds, there was a flash of bright light and the object was
gone.  The object was smaller than a dime at arm's length, but
still easily discernible as a disc with light glinting off of
it. The "flash" looked similar to a ship going into warp drive.
On June 22, 1999, four witnesses observed a disc-shaped craft
flying at a high altitude at 7:15 PM.  The green, blue, red and
white lights appeared to be rotating (or the craft was).  The
sky was clear, the moon was visible and no sound was heard.
Total viewing time about 5 minutes. BURNBY -- On July 3, 1999,
Alice and a companion were driving south when they observed an
extremely bright white light, stationary in the southeastern
sky. They pulled their vehicle over and stopped to watch the
object between 8:30 and 9:00 PM.  It appeared to be below cloud
level.  Over the next 5 minutes the light slowly diminished in
intensity and finally "vanished." Both witnesses claimed they
were familiar with approaching aircraft, and this was not the
case. SOUTH BURNBY ­ On July 23, 1999, several witnesses
observed a small pulsating red light slowly circling the Alex
Fraser Bridge at 00:45 AM.  After about 50 minutes it slowly
drifted away. The pulsation rate was 46 cycles per minute.
LANGLEY—On July 28, 1999, Peter, watched a brilliant white light
across the street from where he was sitting on his porch at
10:00 PM. "It just appeared; as large as a garbage can lid." The
light/object moved slowly across the street towards him and out
of sight around the house. He followed. It was hovering over a
hydra pole. As he watched, the light went out. No noise had been
heard emanating from it. Total viewing time was about 90
seconds. SATURNA ISLAND -- On 29-July-99, a couple used 15 power
binoculars to watch an object move back and forth then up and
down in the Northwest sky at 00:30 AM. It was a bright white
light that flashed red, blue and green.  After 1/2 an hour, it
slowly moved south towards Bellingham.  It appeared to be round,
very high up, and no noise could be heard. Total viewing time
about 1 hour. One of the witnesses is ex-RCMP and is familiar
with aircraft, having worked at the Vancouver Airport Thanks to:
Bill Oliver UFO*BC     www.ufobc.org. MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO --
Aaron and I were outside helping pack my parents van as they
were heading out to Nova Scotia on July 23, 1999.  I was looking
at the stars in the sky when I spotted an intense bright white
light heading west over the Clarkson/Lorne Park. The light was
moving at a fast rate of speed.  It made no sound.  After about
10 seconds, it made a sudden 90 degree turn to the north.  It
started to move faster and after about another 5 seconds turned
again 90 degrees and headed east. The light then disappeared
from sight. My house is under flight paths for planes arriving
and departing from Pearson International Airport, however the
airport is closed at this hour. Thanks to awarner81@yahoo.com


LAVRINHAS -- On July 13, 1999, Luís Messano, a teacher and owner
of a farm said, "A flight of UFOs hovered above the cities of
Lavrinhas and Cachoeira Paulista, in São Paulo at 8:00 PM."  Two
of these objects were very big.  They were the size of the full
moon.  Around ten smaller UFOs departed from the two mother
ships. The event took 3 hours and some other people saw it as
well.  On July 22nd, Mr. Messano reported that virtually the
same event happened again, and that five Brazilian Air Force
jet-fighters attempted to intercept them. We are still looking
for more information on these events.  PRAIA DA BALEIA -- On
Wednesday, July 7, 1999, "two metallic yellow OVNIs" or UFOs
were spotted while flying over Praia da Baleia beach on Ilha
Bela in the South Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Sao Paulo
State.  According to Diario de Grande ABC, "the objects had a
strange metallic yellow color and were coming from the ocean" at
a height of "about 20 meters (66 feet).  They had no wings and
made no sound."  Brazilian ufologists are investigating the
sighting.  (See the Brazilian newspaper Diario de Grande ABC for

EDINBURGH ­ On June 28, 1999, Pamela Hunter reports, "As I am in
the flight path for flights going into Edinburgh airport, it's
not unusual to see landing-lights from aircraft.  However this
time, I noticed a very bright light and very HIGH like a star.
It was moving in a straight line at 11:00 PM.  At first I
thought it was a plane, but the light was too bright and too far
away I just knew it was different I have never seen anything
like this before. I followed this light for 25 seconds then the
light dropped from the sky towards earth.  It was so fast, it
looked as though it dropped 100s of feet in a very short space
of a second or two.  Then the light continued in a straight line
again then quickly moved off and disappeared.  Thanks to Dave

    On Saturday, July 10, 1999, a silvery UFO was seen hovering
    over Rojas, a tiny town in the rugged mountains of the Tras
    os Montes region of northern Portugal.  "There were a lot of
    witnesses to this sighting," a resident reported.  "They say
    it was kind of like a silver ball with a black or navy-blue
    stripe at the center.  They had it in view for over five
    minutes."  Rojas is about 50 kilometers (30 miles) west of
    Mirandella, site of last year's big UFO sighting, and about
    270 kilometers (164 miles) north of Lisboa, the national
    capital.  Thanks to Joseph Trainor, UFO Roundup 8/11/99 and

UK investigator and outstanding author Jenny Randle's writes,
"By all means I will comment on abductions." I first
investigated such a case in the UK 20 years ago. For seven years
I worked with clinical psychologists and attended about a dozen
regression experiments on various cases. The outcome was quite
varied and none involved the traditional US gray figures
conducting medical examinations. What entities did appear were
mostly human or Nordic. But there was a range of others -- from
monsters to robots. The only real consistency came in the basic
form of the experience -- witness sees a light, witness loses
consciousness, witness awakes in strange bright room and sees
entities, some sort of contact/psychic experience or message is
conveyed, witness reawakens back in prior environment (e.g.,
bedroom or car -- these accounting for 17 out of 19 cases I was
part of during that time). There were smatterings of medical
probes but nothing like that found in the Hopkins cases. The
above work occurred between l979 and l986. From this data
several conclusions emerged. Various witnesses explained their
doubts about hypnosis. They felt it made them more confused, not
less so. They were unclear of the reality status of their
experience. Some felt positively harmed psychologically by the
trauma of hypnosis.  I also saw warning signs -- e.g., a case
where I found myself suddenly speaking to the witness (in
regression) who was no longer describing her encounter but
channeling the alien and cosmic messages as if I was now
actually addressing that being. Or another where a witness
suffered an epileptic seizure during regression. And at least
three cases where the doctor, monitoring EEG and ECG of the
witness, terminated the experiment as these became dangerously
high. I even later discovered that one doctor (medically
qualified) whom one of my colleagues was working with was
evidently using a drug to help induce hypnosis that brought him
considerable pressure from the medical council afterwards, since
I gather some of his patients were unaware of its use.

For these reasons I rapidly came to see hypnosis as a major part
of the problem -- given its less than acknowledged ability to
always stimulate memory rather than fantasy. As our primary duty
was to the witness, it was to my mind dangerous to push them
into such situations merely on the pretext that we were seeking
'better evidence' about their abduction. The tighter controls
and l988 BUFORA ban on the use of regression altogether greatly
reduced the number of reported abductions; although not to zero.
Some conscious memory cases did arrive and, of course, several
UK groups continued unabated with the use of regression.
Although I have not recommended the use of hypnosis to any
witness since the BUFORA ban and have not been directly involved
in any subsequent case that has used it I have personally
undergone hypnosis (via a clinical psychologist) as part of an
experiment and sat in as observer on other peoples cases where
hypnosis was used (again via a different clinical psychologist)

I also discovered several cases where my investigation revealed
that the perceived time loss of a few minutes -- the period
thought to contain the abduction -- probably never actually
occurred. Logically, if there was no time lapse (or at most say
five minutes) then there could be no abduction.  But as an
abduction recall did emerge vis hypnosis in these cases we had a
problem.  Was the recall a fantasy induced by hypnosis but taken
more seriously because of the misdiagnosis of a time lapse?  Or
was the abduction experience real enough but contracted in time
so that it seemed to last, say, an hour when only five minutes
went by?  If so there is one phenomenon that already involves
what we find in abductions -- such time contractions, scene
jumping and impossible reality superimposed onto normal reality.
That phenomenon is the dream -- particularly the lucid dream. I
thought immediately this was a significant clue and have
developed from it my 'waking lucid dream' hypothesis.

 >From the evidence I have watched unfold -- across personally
now some 30 cases and with association of some kind with several
others - I have some opinions on what is happening.  Firstly,
witnesses to an abduction are almost always sincere.  These are
not hoaxes but genuine, mystifying experiences.  They occur to
what we might call an abduction prone personality -- with traits
that have clearly stood out in my cases and via several other
studies (e.g., by Keith Basterfield in Australia, Ken Philips in
the UK and Dr Alex Keul's European anamnesis experiments). They
are predominantly young (very few over the age of 40), female
(around two thirds of UK witnesses), above average intelligence,
creatively visual, with a developing interest in ecology and
similar ideals, possessive of above average recall of early life
experiences (e.g. prior to the age of 2) and commonly with a
life long track record of experiencing strange phenomena of
which the abduction/s is/are just a part.  Not all witnesses
have all features but 90% of mine have at least three.  As such
I think it is fair to say that being an abductee is a specialist
skill.  The second part of this article will continue next week.
Thanks to Jenny Rankles.

Documentary   Most readers of this column are familiar with the
Roswell event, but many are unaware that a similar incident
occurred in Pennsylvania in 1965, near a small rural community
called Kecksburg.  Veteran UFO researcher Stan Gordon, has been
gathering information on this case for many years, and has
produced a studio made 92 minute video called "Kecksburg The
Untold Story."  This production recently won the 1998 EBE film
award for the Best Historical UFO Documentary.  The video
contains interviews with many people who have information about
the case including witnesses who saw the object in the sky, and
those who say they came across a large metallic acorn shaped
object with strange markings, partially buried in the ground,
before the military arrived on the scene.  Among those
interviewed are reporters who were on location that night.  A
witness says he saw the odd acorn shaped object on the back of
an army flatbed tractor trailer truck.  Civilians claim they
were confronted by armed military personnel.  For the first time
witnesses speak out on camera discussing information which
suggests that there could have been a cover-up.  A startling
revelation is revealed here from a witness, who says he saw a
body in the same building with the Kecksburg object at
Wright-Patterson Air Force Base only days after it was delivered
there. Also contained in the documentary are some of the actual
audio excerpts from the WHJB radio special called "Object in the
woods."  It was broadcast soon after the incident in a "cut and
edited version."  To order your copy of "Kecksburg The Untold
Story"  send a check or money order to: Stan Gordon Productions,
P.O. Box 936, Greensburg, PA 15601. Attention: Dept. GF.  The
cost of the tape including shipping and handling is $35.90.  For
PA residents the cost including tax, S&H is $38.05. For more
information, check out Stan's updated website at

U.S. GOVERNMENT UFO PROOF RELEASED: Audio tapes of a genuine UFO
Alert at Edwards Air Force base and studied by the Foreign
Technology Division at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, are now
available for distribution to the public.  Lunar Astronaut Dr.
Edgar Mitchell was at Edwards the night the UFO chase occurred.
The 6th person to walk on the moon said, "The night it happened
I investigated it myself and this was a real event."  Sam
Sherman's audio documentary tape called THE EDWARDS AIR FORCE
BASE ENCOUNTER on the night of October 7, 1965, uses the actual
voice recordings provided by the Air Force.  During this event
12 high tech luminous UFOs invade secure air space and came down
low over the runways at Edwards AFB.  Tower operator Sgt. Chuck
Sorrels spotted them and notified the Air Defense Command.  Sgt.
Sorrels is heard on the original tapes and in a new segment
where he verifies the event as it is heard on the archival
recordings.  The UFOs are described and a decision is made to
launch F-106 fighter interceptors.  You are there for an
important part of UFO history.  Hear it for yourself, it's the
best UFO tape ever made.  Tape cost is $14.95 each plus $2.00
for shipping -- total $16.95 -- you can send eitherpersonal
check or money order to: Independent International Films, Box
565, Dept. GF, Old Bridge, New Jersey 08857.
