GIVE THANKS: Our world changed on September 11, I ask for your
prayers for the sick who write us and our country and the world.
Give thanks with a grateful heart; give thanks to the Holy one
who gave his Son. And now let the weak say I'm strong and the
poor say, I am rich for what the Lord has done. This is a
decisive time of hatred and war, at Thanksgiving its time to
pray, give thanks, and reflect. Prayer can heal sickness and
help you personally a great deal. The Bible says, "If my people
who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and
seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear
from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land."
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and remember there is someone out
there watching.

LONDON -- The British government has announced that in an
unbroadcast video tape made last month, Osama bin Laden declared
that his al Qaeda network "instigated" the attacks on the World
Trade Center and Pentagon. Bin Laden's video states, "if
avenging the killing of our people is terrorism, let history be
a witness that we are terrorists." Bin Laden made the video on
October 20 for secret distribution to al Qaeda members, but
British intelligence learned of its contents. Prime Minister
Tony Blair said in an address to Parliament that Bin Laden
admitted the attacks, saying, "It is what we instigated, for a
while, in self-defense. And it was revenge for our people killed
in Palestine and Iraq. Bush and Blair don't understand any
language but the language of force. Every time they kill us, we
will kill them, so the balance of terror can be achieved." The
British government did not release the video. It is interesting
to note that during Congressional Iran Contra Hearings fifteen
years ago, Lt. Col. Oliver North warned that the terrorist Osama
Bin Laden had threatened him and his family and in his opinion,
"He is the most evil person alive that I know of."


Sunday morning I was one of many who watched the Leonid meteor
storm light up the early morning sky at 5:00 AM. It was the best
show in some 35 years. There were hundreds of meteorites making
the most exciting display, I have ever seen. A combination of
clear skies and no moon made for a great show.


PLEASANTVILLE -- On November 11, 2O01, at 11:20 PM the witness
saw a very large cigar shaped object traveling very fast. The
witness reports, "I was looking at the sky while my dogs got
their nightly exercise. Very dim lights traveling across the sky
caught my peripheral vision. There were 4 or 5 of them that came
from a long object traveling south very quickly at about 60
degrees above the horizon. It was silent. I could see the
lights for 4 or 5 seconds then lost it in the glare from the
Ford dealership lights. Thanks to Peter B. Davenport, NUFORC

CARNEYS POINT -- At 12:35 PM, a veteran police officer and
private pilot, accompanied by a legal professional saw a
brownish black cylinder shaped object flew over their vehicle at
250 feet altitude on May 18, 1996. The sighting lasted five
seconds before it vanished. One 50 feet long cylinder shaped
object, dull brownish black in color, with a metal tail
structure, crossed S.W. to N.E. across dual highway at moderate
speed over our vehicle. The sighting lasted about five seconds,
after which object vanished. The leading edges of structure
appeared to display the dull pattern typical of "re-entry burn"
on the space shuttle. Local weather verified to be: Bar: 29.99,
Visibility: 2 miles, ceiling 800 feet, Temp: 66 Deg. F, Dew
Point: 63 F, Hum: 90%, Wind: SSE 6 mph. Thanks to Peter B.

SHILOH -- On November 11, 2001 at 6:20 PM a large triangular
shaped object with large blue lights suddenly made a quick
u-turn and hovered a mile away. The witness reports, "My husband
and I were driving and as we approached an intersection near a
small airport. There was a large triangular shaped object very
close to the ground slowly moving over the intersection. We
drove toward the object and as we got closer to about 30 feet
away, we could see three large blue lights (one in each corner).
It suddenly rose up and made a fast u-turn. In less than five
seconds it was gone, quickly heading the other way. About three
miles from the intersection, my husband and I looked back and it
seemed to be a hovering bright light at or near the airport. The
strangest thing about the whole ordeal was there was no sound at
all. There was a car about two car-lengths in front of us who I
am sure saw it too. Believe me, you couldn't miss it. Thanks to
Peter B. Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center


CHICKASAW STATE PARK, SULPHUR -- On November 10, 2001, from the
south the witness observed what appeared to be a small, round,
white light moving fairly slowly in all directions at 9:35 PM.
At first it was behind trees but then it increased it's altitude
and moved above the trees. The witness thought the light was no
more than 100 yards away. Another witness thought it was no
closer than a mile. At first its movement was slow and steady,
moving toward the west while traveling up and down. It looked
more like it was floating as apposed to flying. After a minute
or two, it picked up speed moving toward the west or northwest.
At this point, I grabbed my binoculars and lost visual contact
for a few seconds. When I found it in my binoculars, it was
traveling at a high rate of speed and had a flashing red light
on its tail, like an airplane. One of the witnesses confirmed
that I was indeed still observing the same object. It now moved
and looked like an airplane. I couldn't see wings or anything
like that but like I said, it now had a flashing red light on
its "tail." When the red light would blink, the front portion of
the object appeared to have a slight tint of yellow to it. I
noticed that I could hear a jet in the far distance but have no
idea if it was coming from an actual airplane or from this
object. Thanks to Peter B. Davenport, Director National UFO

Researcher John Thompson has some thoughts on abductions
related to the new Terrorist situation. One of the possibilities
why so many abductions have taken place across America during
the last decade is to weaken the resolve and resistance of
America. As you know, I've advocated for a long time that
abductions are really about "mind-control" and not the fanciful
extraterrestrial kidnappings that many entertain. We have to
assume that along with the general population an equal
percentage of our nation's leaders have been abducted and
"conditioned" over the years. Listening to recent talk radio
shows some callers have expressed outrage that our response to
the 09/11/01 slaughter has been far too politically correct.
Coalition building and sensitivity to concerns of Muslims have
over-ridden a true and strict military retaliation against the
Islamic killers responsible for much of the world's terrorism
over the last quarter-of-a-century. Diligent mind control and
"programming" applied to selected individuals in the United
States could do much to defeat America and the West. While
abductions have occurred worldwide, their frequency and
dispersion seems to pale in comparison to the estimated millions
of Americans that have been abducted. Indeed, there is almost no
data to suggest that abductions are numerous in the Third
World. The target of the abductors seems to be more of where the
real power of the world resides: America and Western Europe.
While culture, language difficulties, and lack of investigators
in the Third World may keep reports of abductions low, I
personally have heard of  none from the Modest and South-central
Asia while hearing of some in Africa, which is far more
improvised. America is the leader of the non-Muslim world. To
many Muslims, America is the enemy and the leader of the
infidels; that is, non-believers. It may well be that we are
engaged in a grand Crusade and abductions are simply another
weapon being employed by demonic entities to give an edge to an
otherwise weaker enemy. Thanks to Researcher John Thompson


KANSAS CITY -- On November 10, 2001, James A. Tutt Jr. saw a
silver cigar shaped UFO flying over East 87th Street toward the
Kansas City limits near the over and under pass area of I-435.
It was 11:00 AM, and the sky was clear. James was using his
powered + binoculars and noticed an object standing still east
of him at about 25 to 30,000 feet altitude. The object continued
hovering over the I-435 until he lost sight of it. The cigar
was silver color and may have had fins on it, but it was too
high to tell. This is not the first time that a similar object
was seen. On September 27, 2001, there was a sighting of another
cigar shaped craft with several fins on its side. The craft was
the size of a small house. Thanks to James Allen Tutt Jr

HOUSTON -- F Beau Spikes reports he and his wife saw
unexplainable lights in the sky each night from October 30, to
November 4, 2001, on several nights, two other friends also saw
them. The friends were located five miles away nearer to Spring,
Texas. We saw many light patterns from it with all colors. It
would hover from side to side and up and down. We saw it for 30
or 45 minutes then went to bed, at 11:00 PM The second night we
saw it again, 35 degrees up a little to the south from previous
night. We watched for 2.5 hours, until 2:00 AM. The third night
there was only one; I observed it from 12:00 to 12:30 AM. Fourth
night there were three UFOs a little more south in a pattern
like a check mark. They took turns being "active." We watched
from 7:30 to 9:30 PM. In addition, my friends my neighbor too
had binoculars so I could see the colors as little bit better.
There were brilliant colors of every shade, but mostly blue,
purple, and green. Last night was a full moon too, and these
"devices" still were plainly visible but the stars were not. We
called the local FOX weather desk; they reported no meteors or
weather balloons etc. These sightings in my opinion are
definitely mechanical in nature. I don't know what they are but
stars don't jiggle and bobble, stars don't appear to flash
symmetric and lit appendages with alternating colors. Stars
don't often change shape and have straight-line emissions and
stars or planets don't change patterns in a group within a
couple of hours. This is why my wife and I were convinced we
were  watching something bizarre. Seeing that they appear (from
my perspective) near a major international airport, I doubt it
would be foreign technology. Thanks to F Beau Spikes
(Beauknowz@yahoo.com) who writes, thanks for your reply, I would
like to be contacted by a MUFON investigator. In addition, I
have already entered a report at the form on the MUFON main

ARLINGTON ALIEN ACCOUNT -- A college student worked in a paint
store frequented by a painter who claimed to have alien
encounters. He was a peculiar kind of guy who lived, alone, in a
small house outside the city limits. "He often talked about
being visited by beings from other planets and strange
futuristic technology that they had showed him and space ships
and the like. The painter and college student became friendly
as the painter began to talk about his leaving this earth to go
to live on another planet. They showed him all their strange
machines. The painter told the college student that he had no
family and that before he left this earth to go and live on
another planet, he wanted to deed his house and land to him.
The student told him (with tongue in cheek) that, "sure," before
he left for outer space, he could deed his house to him. The
painter transferred his house, and land and all his assets to my
business associate. In addition, within a matter of days from
doing so, the painter called him and told him to come to a
certain field on his property at a certain time that very
evening. He told him that he would be leaving this earth with
the men from outer space tonight, never to return, and that the
student would be able to see him leave on the space ship if he
would be at the field at the appointed time. The student drove
up to the man's property, parked his car, and walked to the
particular field that the painter had specified. As he
approached, he could see a strange kind of green mist-like light
coming from behind the rise of earth ahead of him. When he
reached the edge of a berm he saw a saucer shaped craft hovering
just a couple of feet or so above the ground and glowing green.
The painter appeared and looked over at him, and acknowledged
his presence with a wave. An opening appeared in the saucer and
the painter entered.

The craft shot straight up in the air and in a matter of only
seconds was a bright dot that just disappeared. After a while,
when he realized the painter was really not coming back, he and
his wife and children moved into the house that the painter had
deeded to him. They did not stay very long. He said, "You
wouldn't believe all the strange, eerie things that went on in
that house." He added that some of the technology (having to do
with computers and nanotechnology) that exists today are things
that the painter had told them about that seemed so far-fetched
at that time. He is a very no-nonsense kind of person, which
makes me believe his story even more. Talk at you later,

GLENDALE -- Rick reports seeing what appeared to him as a UFO
on November 6, 2001. He says, "I just witnessed the best thing
ever." I have never seen one before only read about them on
different sites. However, the object I saw at about 9: 25 PM,
was lower than most aircraft in the area and shooting across the
sky at a high rapid rate much faster than the aircraft here.
The object was round, the bottom looked like a reddish gold
color, no lights and no sound. I ran downstairs, from my
apartment, went to the parking lot, not 3 to 4 seconds later and
the object was gone. I read your site and other's and has had
many mixed feelings until now. Now, I myself have become a
believer. I thought you would like to know my story; I'm very
excited about the entire event and wanted to share this
extraordinary night. Thank you for your time. Thanks to Rick
Glendale at Eichbaum74, and Joe Trainor Masinaigan


NAMPA -- D. Kennedy reports a flying wing entered our line of
site as we were watching the Leonid meteor shower on November
18, 2001. It flew directly over us then off to the south at 2:45
AM. It made "NO" noise, and had "No" lights. There was a faint
temperature glow on the leading edge of the wing, tip to tip.
Altitude was impossible to tell. If it were higher than 5,000
feet the craft would have been extremely large. It did resemble
a B-2 Stealth bomber, but without the sharp angles. All the
edges were rounded, more like a boomerang. My wife observed it
as well. The color was dark, possibly black with a rounded
boomerang shaped flying wing with temperature glow on leading
edge of wing. The height and speed are unknown. The higher it
was? The larger and faster it would have been. Joe Trainor
writes, "Here's a sighting from Idaho. However, it sounds less
like a UFO than some sort of flight test of a prototype "flying
wing" aircraft of our U.S. Air Force. I was amused to see that
this event took place in Nampa. In 1883, this town was the site
of a very unusual Fortean event. A man named M.A. Kurz began
drilling a well, and the sump pump spit up a human figurine of
incalculable age from a depth of 300 feet below ground. Part of
the "doll" had begun to metamorphose, showing an age of hundreds
of thousands of years. Good luck with The UFO Store. Thanks to
Joe Trainor Masinaigan


Last Sunday, November 11, 2001, my mother and I saw a UFO. It
was about four minutes after seven when my mother called me out
of my room to our back porch. She pointed out an object that at
first looked like a bright star. Then it started to move very
slowly and we began to see more detail. There was a red intense
red aura type of light surrounding the object just enough to
make out a shape with binoculars. This thing was far away at
least a thousand feet up, and kind of a disc shape with a black
mass to it. It appeared then it would disappear for about 4 to 6
seconds. Then a red ball object came out of the lighted end and
seemed like it dropped like a flare after you shot in the sky. I
can tell I never been so excited I finally saw one after all
these years of looking in the sky. Thanks to RT


PORTLAND -- The 10 o'clock KPTV News reports on November 15,
2001, includes video film of alleged UFOs. -- The Pacific
Northwest is no stranger to the UFO phenomenon. For years, Mount
Adams, in south central Washington, has been a hub for UFO
activity. Mount Adams is home to what some call UFO's and others
call naturally occurring lights or satellites. Hundreds of
people have claimed to see the lights, and one man who lives
near the mountain even claims to have contact with the
extraterrestrial beings that are behind the lights. When James
Gilliland built his home just outside Trout Lake, Washington, he
had no idea it sat right in the middle of a UFO flight path. He
and hundreds of other who frequent his 70-acre property near
the mountain believe the lights are UFO's. Gilliland has
recorded over 15 hours of video of the strange lights. Gilliland
also claims he has had direct contact with the inter-dimensional
spiritual beings who control what he calls light ships. "These
are very advanced beings technologically, spiritually we have
to rise to the occasion," said Gilliland. Others say the strange
lights are just natural occurring nocturnal geo-thermal lights
or satellites. OMSI planetarium director Jim Todd says the
images on James Gilliland's video look like ordinary satellites
to him. "I can understand their excitement cause they see
something moving across the stars. I've seen a lot of
satellites space station shuttle and their fun to watch they
really are," said Todd. More than 30 years ago, scientists from
around the country began documenting the strange light
phenomenon. In 1972, "The Investigation of Nocturnal Light
Phenomena at Toppensh, Washington" was released. The report
outlines several encounters, such as the following: "The light
moved so fast it gave the impression of a streak. It would
appear stationary for a moment and then almost instantaneously
appear some distance away." Now, over thirty years later, there
are still no clear answers to the mysterious lights, but
Gilliland does say the aliens have a message for all of
humanity. "We need to clean up our consciousness. Clean up our
environment, raise up, and lead a spiritual way of life." Thanks

ONTARIO -- Paul wrote I told my father was visiting me last
week and I showed him the on line video of the Disclosure
seminar. He reminded me of his unexplained encounter he had.
This encounter happened a few years ago while he was working far
up in Northern Canada. He was a hydro station inspector. He
spent many nights awake looking at the skies and wolves.  He is
an amateur photographer and was looking to get shots of the
wolves feeding at night, anyway he was gazing at the perfectly
clear mid winter night, when he noticed three objects in the sky
that were quite high in elevation. They were side by side and
the middle object was longer then the outside two. The 3 objects
were cylindrical shaped, joined together by small joints, like
balls on a string. Then one of the outside objects split off,
flew a wide circle around the sky, and then shot off out of
sight. The middle larger object and the smaller object beside
turned lengthwise and seem to face end down towards him. They
had very bright lights. They held this position for a while then
separated and shot out of sight. He has never told anyone of his
encounter for fear of ridicule. He is a very honest person and
knows aircraft as he was flying in helicopters all the time in
the north. He does have a photo of the objects, which I have
seen and are amazing. We both firmly believe we are not alone,
how can you not with the billions of solar systems out there.
Its time for governments to admit it. Thanks to Paul Cook in


BUENOS AIRES -- An air of confusion and suspicion surrounds an
hour-long incident in the night skies over the South Atlantic
Argentine airspace. The Argentinean newspaper Clar=A1n, reports a
Lear Jet carrying Lt. Governor Daniel Gallo, encountered
unidentified bright flashing lights in the sky over Patagonia.
Piloted by commander Mariano Zalotti and copilot Mario Beban,
the aircraft had left Jorge Newbery Airfield at 20.50 hours,
November 12, and set course for the airport at R=A1o Grande. The
jet was traveling at a height of 10,000 meters when they saw a
nearby blinking lights in the darkness. The "estroboc=A2picas"
[strobe] lights appeared on the left side of their aircraft.
"Nevertheless, I never thought that it could be a foreign
military airplane invading our airspace," the three occupants of
the aircraft discounted the lights as being either a UFO and
theorized that they could have belonged instead to a British
aircraft, whose base is at Mount Pleasant, in the Falkland
Islands." When flying over the city of Commodore Rivadavia, 75
miles out to sea [Strait of Magellan G-fs], we observed for the
first time the flashing lights that followed a short distance,
flying the same map course to a height superior and of greater
speed", Commander Zalotti said later. "Then we flew at a
cruising speed of 900 kilometers per hour." A British Embassy
spokesman in Buenos Aires denied that it could have been an
aircraft from that country and described the claim by the
pilots as "speculation without sense." There was confirmation
that no other Argentinean aircraft had been flying in the area
at this time. Thanks to FarShhores@canada.com, Wilmar Caballero

Channel 13 of the Catholic University of Chile broadcast a UFO
filmed by Eric Martinez, a member of the GEO group, on Saturday,
November 10, 2001. The UFO was filmed over the hills surrounding
the La Florida commune. A curious detail is that one object was
filmed by day, and another object was filmed at night. They

Jeff Challender has prepared a new tape of various UFOs that
were caught on recent Shuttle video footage. Jeff has over an
hour long tape of UFOs shot in space. Jeff spends hundreds of
hours watching the shuttle broadcasts from space and is now an
expert on NASA missions and even those onboard the shuttle are
unlikely to see what Jeff does. Using Jeff's directions you
will be able to learn the difference between space junk, ice
crystals and real UFOs. I feel confident we could go into a
court of law and convince any jury that there are UFOs moving at
high speed around the Earth. Send $25 to: Jeff Challender 2768
