Subject: New At Nellis UFO Site 

I've just gotten around to updating my website on the 1994
Nellis Range UFO, including a brand new discussion. This was
material I originally presented at the Ozark UFO conference in




"The Nellis Range UFO video is virtually unique among those in
the public domain in that an unidentified anomalous flying
object was not only captured in close-up by a military camera,
but also included overlaid tracking data and a time stamp,
permitting precise calculation of the trajectory and flight
characteristics, such as velocity and acceleration. In addition,
the video also has voices of various military range operators
discussing the object and trying to identify it without success.

"Among anomalous characteristics, the calculated data indicates
that the object was capable of flying from 30 to 700 miles per
hour, yet it is a rotating, multi-lobed, non-streamlined object
(animation right). How the craft could fly at such high speed
without streamlining is not clear. It also displays multiple
bursts of high acceleration/deceleration. The high speeds and
accelerations also rule out many conventional flying objects
such as balloons, helicopters, or propeller driven aircraft.
Furthermore, the object shows no evidence of a propulsion
system, such as external engines or a trail that might be
expected from a jet- or rocket-propelled aircraft capable of
such high speeds and accelerations. Finally, the object was
highly maneuverable, executing a right-angle turn and going into
steep climbs."

The revised discussion has detailed maps, new graphs of
performance and trajectory, and animations. A good summary
animation (my favorite) of the object's many odd characteristics
can be found at:
