Dr. James E. McDonald, Professor of Atmospheric physics,
University of Arizona. 1967 stated in 1967. "I have absolutely
no idea where the UFO's come from or how they are operated, but
after ten years of research, I know they are something from
outside our atmosphere."


A star within the Big Dipper, 47 Ursae Majoris is believed to
host a planet a little larger than Earth. It could have a warm
and watery surface ideal for life based on its orbit around the
star. New planets are being found almost monthly based on new
gravitational measurements and characteristic wobbles of the
stars. Another planet was found orbiting the star 70 Virginis,
in the Constellation Virgo. Unlike Earth, many newly found
planet orbit's are an elongated oval rather than a near-perfect
circle. Geoffrey Marcy of San Francisco State University notes
that nine of 17 extrasolar planets detected so far have such
eccentric orbits. The circular orbits exhibited by every planet
in our solar system may be more the exception than the rule,
Marcy and his colleagues suggest in a paper submitted to the
Astrophysical Journal. ‘Looking for Life.' The gravitational
effects of giant planets in elliptical orbits could sweep aside
smaller worlds, the researchers say. "This does represent a bit
of a wet blanket on the search for intelligence in the galaxy,"
Marcy said in Saturday's announcement. "The big bullies may wipe
clean the terrestrial planets in those planetary systems,
rendering them void of any Earth analogs." On the bright side,
Marcy says only about 5 percent of the stars in the Milky Way
appear to have close-in Jupiter-scale planets. "What we're
learning is that 95 percent of sunlike stars don't have these
wildly wacky Jupiter's in such close-in orbits, and I would say
that's quite good news for the SETI efforts." Thanks to AP by

Greg St. Pierre reports January 10, 1999, Sunday was a strange
day for New Hampshire, my home state. At 5:50 a.m., a minor
earthquake was felt in southern NH and northern Massachusetts,
measuring about 2.7. An aftershock of about the same magnitude
occurred at 10:20 a.m. Tremors are rare in these parts, two on
the same day is unheard of. Also, the following story appeared
in the Monday’s edition of Manchester's Union Leader by Derek
Rose: 'Green flash' streaks through central NH sky. Bill Slatton
was driving home when he saw what looked to be a green fireball
streak across the night sky in Pittsfield yesterday. "My God,
this thing was as clear as day," he remembers thinking to
himself. "It was huge. It was right along side of us." His
fiancee, Kathy Bickford, saw it too. Police departments in Bow
and Northfield report sightings also, from callers describing a
"green flash" in the sky. Slatton said he and his fiancee saw
the fireball for a few seconds as they drove south on Route 28
in Pittsfield around 7:05 PM, yesterday. He said it was like the
fireball that crashes into the earth in a recent Dunkin Donuts
commercial. "It was descending almost like a plane descending.
It's hard to describe, it was just so awesome." James Ryan, a
professor of physics and space science at the University of New
Hampshire, didn't think the report was strange. "It could be a
meteorite," he said. "Estimates of how far away these things are
very unreliable." Thanks to Greg St. Pierre and John Thompson.


TETERBORO AIRPORT-- Ann Marie Fondaciaio's reported to CAUS that
her husband had two recent UFO sightings. He was in the Special
forces in Vietnam and has worked as a ground crew chief for 32
years at the airport. He works with all kinds of private jets
and helicopters. His first experience occurred on December 15,
1998, at 5:30 AM at Teterboro Airport in Northern New Jersey.
The corporate airport is located about a five minute drive from
the George Washington Bridge that goes over the Hudson River
into New York City. My husband left his line shack and looked
towards the George Washington Bridge. He saw a huge row of
lights that were stacked together in two rows as long as the
bridge, flying very low and slow. It was coming out of a cloud
bank and made a long slow turn towards the bridge. The size of
it was as big as the whole span of the GWB. It was huge. It's
shape was a wedge with the corners rounded. You could feel the
ship move like a low grade vibration in the air, though it made
no sound. At this point another worker came up in back of my
husband and said, "Oh what is that?" My husband said "What ever
it is it's big" Now the ship started to head up the river
towards the Tappenzee Bridge. Then it went up into the clouds.
As the object was leaving, my husband heard a message in his
ear. It was not like a thought. "The unsettling ? in the Middle
East will end. The evil alchemist will die" Again on December 31
at about 10:15 AM same airport. My husband was in the line shack
again when he saw something that caught his eye in the sky. He
looked up and in the sky where there were clouds, but in a small
blue open patch of sky, he saw a glint of light. It came from
the Southeast, then turned to the northeast going towards the
George Washington Bridge. When he first saw it, it was moving
against air traffic and bobbing up and down going against the
wind. When it banked to the left and faced the sun, he could see
the sun shine off the top. When it banked the other way, the
bottom was a dull Grey. The tower saw it in their radar. The
tower said it was moving erratically in altitude between 8,000
and 10,000 feet. The tower radioed aircraft in the landing
pattern that they have an unidentified over the airport not
responding to any radio call. Divert from the left downwind
pattern to a right downwind pattern until we determine the
unidentified intentions. The ship was 20-30 feet in diameter.
About 16 people witnessed this including the tower people.

LAKE PARSIPPANY MYSTERY: "Something plunged into Lake Parsippany
on Christmas Eve December 24, 1998, breaking a hole in the ice
75 feet across and blowing vegetation into the air." "Gifts were
delivered by morning, so it wasn't St. Nick buying the farm. Nor
were any meteor sightings reported, according to ION Weather
meteorologist Bill Cotter." The hole in the ice caught the
attention of Joe Strobel, who lives 150 feet away on a small
island in the lake. He told a friend about it on Christmas
morning." "'They were all ready to have me committed to
Greystone the local mental health facility.' said Strobel, a
nine-year resident. "Then they came over and they couldn't
explain it. One guy lived here for 35 years and said he's never
seen anything like that.'" "The green vegetation was blown into
the air and fell in a circle on the surrounding ice, drawing a
flock of hungry Canada geese. A thin sheet of ice has since
formed on the lake." Parsippany, NJ is located about 20
northwest of New York City." (See the Daily Record of Morris
County, NJ for 12/29/98, by Erik Engquist. Thanks to "Aiwass"

I am E-mailing to ask if any one of you had received reports or
heard talk of UFO sightings in the Saginaw-Bay area of Michigan
on Christmas Eve. Also, the Macomb/St.Claire Counties area
northeast of Detroit on Christmas night. I had a sighting of an
anomalous orangish light on December 24, 1998. An odd
unimpressive light flared on and off low in the eastern sky. I
received a sober-sounding message from a person in Macomb
County, Michigan concerning several lights in the southern sky
on Christmas night. The lights were apparently in sight by an
entire family for over two hours. The family seems to have a
history of UFO sightings as well as silent black helicopter
sightings. It should be noted that Selfridge ANGB near by. Let
me know if you'd like more information. Jeff Westover


CINCINNATI-- Channel-9 News WCPO reports mysterious booms were
heard in areas near Butler County by Laura Randall on January
10, 1999. The situation involved explosive booms and thuds which
alarmed residents in parts of Fairfield, Ohio (18-miles north of
Cincinnati). An earlier newscast by WCPO reporters addressed the
numerous phone calls to police dispatch offices, stating that
the disruptions had been attributed to an underground phenomenon
known as 'ice heaving' or 'frost cracking.' This explanation was
reportedly offered by persons at The National Weather Service
office, located in Wilmington, Ohio. Interestingly, WCPO News in
this later report informed that a local geologist, University of
Cincinnati Professor Dr. Kenneth Hinkle, refuted the
'frost-cracking' theory and informed that such explanations were
not workable in this instance. "In the High Arctic,
frost-cracking resembles a sharp snap similar to a rifle report,
which can be felt," Hinkle stated for the newscast. The National
Weather Service believed that a combination heavy rain and rapid
freezing led to the mysterious sounds heard by alarmed
residents. Hinkle was curious, and after conducting an
investigation, added that frost-cracking was a most unlikely
explanation. Hinkle took a garden spade and put the
frost-cracking theory to the test, but found that the snow had
insulated the top-soil from the bitter cold. Hinkle demonstrated
that the sub-surface conditions were not condusive to
frost-cracking. Thanks to Kenny Young TASK.


Thanos Perros reports seeing a disk at 2:00 AM on January 1,
1999. The disc- shaped UFO landed and I ran inside to get my
camera it was gone. (708) 301-6787 12853 Parker Road, Lockport,
IL 60441. Editors Note: At this time he may have been
celebrating New Year's Eve, in any case his phone is now
disconnected, so we are unable to verify.


Warren Angel writes that on January 6, 1999, "My wife and I were
driving in Anchorage toward the Chugiach Mountain range and saw
what appeared to be a large "plane" (for lack of a better term)
launch straight up and then level off at a high rate of speed.
Thinking it was just our eye playing tricks on us, we dismissed
it. Since it happened Wednesday afternoon several people in
different parts of town witnessed the same thing. The trail was
immense. It almost reminded us of watching a shuttle launch.
Since the area it came out of is on military property, we
figured it's safe to say it's "one of ours".. As I said, the
trail was immense, like a shuttle launch. I kind of doubt it was
a UFO. However, it does suggest there might be other US space
projects going on around Arctic Valley. This thing was over 15
miles away and we could make out the general shape. It was
larger than a commercial airliner at approximately the same
distance. It was a silver, reflective triangle in the same kind
of shape as the new shuttle designs. It appeared that the trail
went from 2 streams to 4 as it hit an undeterminable altitude.
We watch the fighters out of Elmendorf all the time, this was
not an F-15 or anything we've seen before. And obviously others
felt the same (so far the count is 8 spread throughout the city)
as it caught their attentions as well. Thanks to: Warren Angel

DUBLIN--The Boston Herald, January 11, 1999, by Jim Dee. Last
year, 4,230,000 visitors descended on the Emerald Isle - Land of
a Thousand Welcomes - from the four corners of the Earth to
sample Ireland's legendary hospitality. Others - possibly from a
galaxy far, far, away hovered in the sky above without ever
landing, according to self-taught UFO expert Eamon Ansbro. A
former engineer and meteorologist, Ansbro, 48, has spent much of
the past decade trying to perfect a system of predicting when
and where alien spacecraft will arrive. Ansbro is convinced UFOs
will be hovering above Dublin at 5 a.m. on January 30. And in
February, he promised, they'll return to one of their favorite
haunts, the tiny town of Boyle, County Rosscommon. It's "a UFO
hotspot," he said. Ansbro can't explain exactly why Ireland is a
preferred extraterrestrial destination, but says possible
reasons range from the nation's political neutrality to its
Druidic past. After all, in a country renowned for its `Forty
Shades of Green' and a multitude of leprechauns, little green
men from outer space might fit in nicely. And then there's Irish
hospitality. "The one thing about the Irish is that they're open
to the new," Ansbro said. "Ireland isn't going to send up some
fleet of F-16s and blast UFOs out -- which has been done,
apparently, by the Americans" in the 1950s. Ansbro has
frequently been profiled in Irish newspapers and featured on
British and Irish TV and Irish radio in the last year. He
claimed he has identified "an automated surveillance" of Earth,
regularly conducted by "a large craft, say at 80 to 90 thousand
feet, that somehow is camouflaged." The craft periodically
ejects UFOs to orbit and scan the Earth below, he believes.
Ansbro thinks alien craft use Ireland's abundant stone-age rock
monuments, known as Megalithic tombs, as "vortexial energy
points" - navigational beacons - to maintain their bearings. He
produces a map outlining common alien touring routes around
Earth. Eighty percent of them pass over Megalithic tombs.


John Thompson writes: I was talking to an ex-MUFON member in
LaGrange today and he related an interesting account of INTs to
me. He said a dog was barking and jumping on a bed trying to get
at an "haint" and everybody in the witness's family was having
bad dreams of same type until they did some demon bashing with
the help of God. That was several months ago and the family he
talked to say the haints instantly disappeared; thus, confirming
the Florida folks and what my own limited investigations into
this matter have shown. Over 90 percent of this business is
dimensional stuff and why there is never, never any physical
proof. I think despite all of the Air Force's critics, Project
Bluebook had it about right: 6-7% of UFOs are unexplainable.
Actually looking at their unsolvables, I think I could have
solved some of them and this would bring it down to 4 or-5 %.
Thanks to John Thompson.


The US has struck at targets in Iraq, Libya, Yugoslavia, in
recent years. These countries have no chance of attacking us
with standard modern military weapons of war. Therefore it is
likely they will attack with terrorist actions. Some of the most
vulnerable targets are commercial aircraft and large buildings
as targets. In a related story by Ian Williams Goddard (c)1999.
(The Orwellian Nightmare) One of the more disturbing issues
surrounding the TWA Flight 800 crash has been the claims made by
some people that on the night of the crash they saw reports on
TV that confirmed a missile hit, yet the reports apparently
disappeared into an Orwellian black hole. NOW a news cameraman
has spilled-the-beans on one of these disappeared TV reports,
indicating that what people have been saying they saw on TV
really was on TV. People have claimed they saw an interview
right after the crash of an Air National Guard pilot as he stood
on a tarmac in front of an aircraft where the pilot said the jet
was hit with a missile and that Navy-missile exercises were
being conducted at the time. Consistent with such an interview,
the Long Island paper Suffolk Life reports [1]: "Long Island's
Channel 55 cameraman James Hughes, said during an interview that
he and another camera crew from one of the networks were at the
airport when the C130 landed. The crew, he said, stated they saw
a missile heading toward FL 800 just before they witnessed the
explosion. The C130 crew members were pulled away from the two
camera crews by what Hughes said appeared to be their superiors
and came back claiming they had seen nothing." This not only
confirms TV-witness accounts of a truth-leaking interview of a
pilot at an airport, but it also clearly indicates that the
truth was known that night and, with the immediate censure of
the pilots, it also reveals that a massive cover-up was
activated immediately, which must explain why the media forgot
about that explosive interview. (The C-130 was piloted by Col.
William Stratemeier. Major Frederick Meyer, who said he saw a
meteor-like streak, piloted an HH-60 helicopter. After retiring
from the ANG, Meyer said that the first blast looked like "the
detonation of an antiaircraft shell." We can speculate
terrorists were at work. When our Navy hit an Iranian commercial
aircraft with a missile we immediately announced that the ship
had fired thinking the aircraft was attacking.


Dana Schmidt, MUFON State Director writes As to UFOs Suddenly
Disappear, you do not state the necessary conclusion: If
misidentifications should also continue through the holidays but
do not, then the lack of ANY UFOs must be attributed to people
being distracted from "Looking to the skies," and NOT, that UFOs
are on holiday. Why aliens should care about our holidays is
beyond me, just as much as why anyone (and folks have suggested
this to me) would think UFOs would be more likely to be active
at the turn of a century or millennium, as if our calendar meant
anything to anyone else but the Christian world. As to the Iraq
triangles noted in Desert Fox, I am surprised at your statement
without comment that the CNN reports infer that might have been
a "holographic projection" by our armed forces. Forget it --
that is science fiction, and we need to label it as such. The
art is not NEAR advanced enough to do that. The last thing we
need to do is encourage the skeptics to pounce on ridiculous
explanations. Never mind it was CNN who "inferred" it. We need
to call a spade a spade, or in this case, science fiction,
science fiction. Editor's Note: It is likely that we are
launching some type of decoy to draw antiaircraft fire. Lights
or flares mounted on balloons or unpiloted aircraft to explain
the triangular aircraft observed over Bagdad.


Dr. Richard F. Haines writes: "Having looked at the publication
still under investigation (headed by Dr. R. Wood and his son
Ryan), I am more and more coming to the conclusion (yet still
tentative) that these Majestic documents are authentic. Of
course the burden of proof lies with the debunkers, since the
documents are claimed to be authentic and not vice versa. I have
seen almost no credible forensic work to date published on the
debunker's side of this matter. As you and others have pointed
out so clearly, the implications to our nation and the world of
these documents (if verified) are enormous indeed. It is more
than curious (and interesting) that they were leaked just before
the new millennium! Finally, you may like to know that my book
"Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind" (CE-5) has now been
released by Sourcebooks, Inc., and is available at all major
bookstores. I attempted to analyze the data set fairly
rigorously and from the standpoint of seeking evidence for
intelligence behind the UFO phenomenon. Thanks to Dick Haines


Ufo Contat writes Nostradamus predicted that in July of 1999, a
King will come from the sky. "In the year 1999 and seven months,
From the skies shall come an alarmingly powerful king, To raise
again the great King of the Jacquerie, Before and after, Mars
shall reign at will." The actual writing in French: "L'an mil
neuf cens nonante neuf sept mois, Du ciel viendra un grand Roy
d'effayeur, Resusciter le grand Roy d'Angolmois, Avant apres,
Mars regner par bon heur." The commentary that accompanies my
translation reads as follows: "A tremendous world revolution is
foretold to take place in the year 1999, with a complete
upheaval of existing social orders, preceded by World-Wide wars.
Nostradamus shows his mystic knowledge of the great secret of
the book of revelations and solves for us the identity of the
"Beast of the Apocalypse" and the time of his arrival which John
of Patmos (Rev. 13:18) records "Here is wisdom. Let him that
hath understanding count the number of the Beast: for it is the
number of a man; and his number is 666." By a simple reversal of
the numbers and turning 999 upside down we obtain 666. Also in
agreement with the prophetic vision of H. G. Wells and other
gifted History and Science-Fiction writers, Nostradamus actually
ties in the date 1999 when "from the skies shall come an
invasion . . . and Mars shall reign at will." Time alone will
tell whether this is "War of the Worlds" is to be accepted
literally or metaphorically. Thanks to Ufo contact.
