(It was over the trees, but I could not tell distance or size of the object.)
Mysterious Orange Diamond
However it was still there when I left my house.
Cylindrical-shaped, wingless object caught my attention during sunset.
It was approximately 100 degrees above the horizon south south-west of Waxahachie, a suburb of Dallas, TX.
It appeared to be very high, and hovered above the area soundlessly.
It remained motionless for several minutes.
Mysterious Blue Lights
2 bright blue-white lights travelling parallel to our car at the same speed as our car.
No other cars or lights anywhere.
But they were much bigger than shooting stars and did not arc across the sky and fade, but travelled in a straight line and then both disappeared instantly.
((NUFORC Note: California Emergency Services office telephone NUFORC at 23:17 hrs. on May 21, 2005, to report multiple reports to their office regarding a bright green light seen in the San Francisco area, and in surrounding counties, on this date. PD))
Mysterious Spinning Thingie
I'm guessing the shape shifting effect was due to the tumbling motion or maybe the shape shifting was causing it to look like it was tumbling. I looked at my friend and asked her if she saw what I saw and she told me she did then asked me what it was.
Mysterious Orange Triangle
Mysterious Unknown Aircraft
Enroute from Houston to Columbia, SC at 35,000 feet in a jet airliner.
Mysterious Texas Circle
Just one object was seen. It at first appeared to be a helicopter because it hovered and moved very slowy in a south western direction. When I looked at it with my eyes alone, I could not decipher exactly what the image was. I thought it was a plane but the lights seemed too bright.
I also thought that it might be a star or the moon as you might view them as the sun is rising in the morning, however, the object appeared to be moving.
I retrieved my binoculars from my car and then viewed the object.
I thought I would see something normal that would explain what seemed abnormal.
What I saw was a somewhat round object silver in color outlined with what looked like a flourescent light tube that rapped arround the entire object.
At the base of the object there were three beams of the same flourescent light that encircled the object. The shape of the beams were similar to the fire seen when a rocket is taking off or boosting power.
They were located at the base of the object. One on both ends and one in the middle that appeared to be shorter that the other two.
I checked the morning paper to see if I could find an explanation for what I saw. This evening I telephoned three local TV news stations and asked if anyone had reported seeing any strange obects that morning on the the west side of El Paso. They all answered no. The object that I saw was not a balloon, a plane, a helicopter nor was it like anything I have ever seen in my lifetime.
I am not one to make up stories. I saw what I saw and so did my roommate. I am sure there is a logical explanation for what I saw and that is why I must know what it was that I did see. Any help that you can offer would be greatly appreciated. I just need to know what it was? Thanks.
Mysterious Leicester Road
as i walked on i stopped to look at it and as it was over the top of me i saw 3 lights in a triangle formation and a small pulsing red light in the middle.
i rang my dad in to see if it was a military aircraft but he didnt know what it could of been. i could also see a faint outline of a circle but im not sure.
Mysterious Navajo Mountain Classic
I saw a round bright disk flying towards me.
It was as large as a commercial airplane but it definitely wasn't an airplane.
It was 15 or 20 ft. high with a round domed top.
In the middle were objects that could have been windows.
The bottom was a litle rounded but not flat. It seemed that the top may have been spinning.
The object dipped, then reversed direction and started to climb headed towards Navajo Mountain.
It started to rise very fast and disappeared from sight suddenly.
i was traveling on the train heading southbound towards new mexico. I was looking at the sky, it was a clear day and we had just picked up a bunch of kids.
A bit before this happened the train I was traveling on lost power for five minutes.
Mysterious Star Wars!
It seemed as though the smaller ones were launching from the larger ones. Straight lines of what looked like stars (but were'nt) were appearing, at one point there were at least five consisting of 8 or more moving lights. During most of the activity in the sky we heard our dogs barking at nothing, cat (not ours) howling, and wild burros schreeching nearby.
The one that appeared to land here looked as though it turned over, changing its position as it was descending, towards 29 Palms. During the entire event, they made no noise.
This was approximately 20 minutes before daylight.
[That last one was definitely the best! Once again, be sure to check out NUFORC for more! Ed.]

|UFO Sightings in Wales |
By Sam Burson
Pembrokeshire Wales May 28, 2005 (IC Wales) - A spate of UFO sightings in Wales prompted a secret Ministry of Defence investigation, newly-released information has revealed. The clamour around the possibility of "little green men" visiting Pembrokeshire forced Government officials to look into the situation in the late 1970s. There were numerous tabloid reports, including one of an entire class of schoolchildren claiming to have seen a UFO landing.
An extract of a private memorandum to the Provost and Security Service of the RAF, (effectively the military police), reads, "I should be grateful if you would have a look at these papers and let me know whether you think some sort of discreet inquiry would be worthwhile.
Dr Clarke, who is researching a book called Saucer Full of Secrets about the folklore of UFO sightings, said, "I was really surprised to find this. Generally the MoD dismisses these things and doesn't take them too seriously. But to find they ordered an investigation behind the Minster's back is pretty interesting. It's not quite the X-Files, but it is along the same lines."
In 1977 the talk of Pembrokeshire was all about UFOs.
"Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Star Wars had just come out, so the idea of space was very much at the front of people's minds, which is fascinating in itself."
UFO fever in Pembrokeshire reached its zenith in the winter of 1979. Stories leaked about a strange saucer being housed in a Pembroke Dock warehouse. It turned out to be a life-sized copy of the Millennium Falcon, which was being created for the Star Wars sequel The Empire Strikes Back, pictured above.
Kiska reported that police are even left stunned by some of the reports, and the video of UFO sightings can bring chills to even skeptics. And Ohio has the second highest number of reported UFO sightings.
Police later heard that a new blimp from Akron Goodyear was being tested, but there were no sightings reported between Akron and Olmsted Falls, Kiska reported.
There is a difference between UFOs and spaceships. UFOs are usually small flying objects: glowing orbs, metallic spheres, satellite-type flying machines, etc. And, their flight patterns suggest that they are not of this world. But, spaceships are large futuristic vehicles that are clearly designed to carry passengers in like you see in the movies.
Sun Shili is one of the most serious enthusiasts, and he knows exactly where he will be the day the extraterrestrials finally make contact with mankind. The 67-year-old retired Beijing professor will be in the 21-member delegation picked by international UFO associations to represent Earth as the first negotiations get underway.
Cardiff UK April 12, 2005 (BBC) - Fresh reports of UFO sightings over Derbyshire have emerged with the release of government documents under the new Freedom of Information Act. The papers reveal a family from Crich claim they saw strange lights in the sky 11 years ago and made a report to the RAF.

|2005 Summer and Fall TV Shows |
May 23, 2005 (eXoNews) - Oh, boy! Look what's coming up on the boob tube! Sweeps are finished and the finales are almost over. So what's on next year?
I'm doing the big three (ABC, CBS, and NBC) fall schedules first, followed by the little three and top cable guys. Summer stuff will be included where notable. Look for the real fall lineup in August when the dust clears and we'll publish the usual eXoNews grid of stuff that's worth bothering about.
Monday ~ Reality stuff and football through January and then Heather Graham (Scrubs, Twin Peaks) in a sitcom followed by returning Jake In Progress and What About Brian, a new drama about "the guy everyone wants as a best friend."
Tuesday ~ NCIS returns, followed by a new drama called Close To Home at 10PM. Close is from Jerry Bruckheimer (CSI) and features Jennifer Finnigan (Devan Maguire in Crossing Jordan) as a mom/ prosecutor and Christian Kane (Angel) as her hubby.
Monday ~ Fathom is NBC's new drama about a new form of sea life which mysteriously appears "in locales all over the Earth" and the ensuing investigation of same. This is followed by the return of NBC's big winners Las Vegas and Medium.
Wednesday ~ Reality show followed by E-Ring from producer Jerry Bruckheimer (CSI). E-Ring is about life in The Pentagon and has some promise in the form of stars Dennis Hopper and Benjamin Bratt. E-Ring leads in for the return of NBC stalwart Law & Order.
Tuesday ~ Bones is not about the doctor on Star Trek. It's another show about a forensics guy BUT - pay attention, kids - co-stars David Boreanaz (Angel) as "a former Army sniper who mistrusts science and scientists when it comes to solving crimes." That's right, Buffyverse fans. He's back! House (my favorite new show this year) returns after Bones.
Tuesday ~ America's Next Top Model reruns, followed by Sex, Lies and Secrets, about 20 year-olds living in Silver Lake, which is a trendy-seedy area on the outskirts of Hollywood. Denise Richards and Eric Balfour are both good actors, so who knows what to think of this? (Hint: the annual LA Gay Pride Parade is held in Silver Lake.)
Monday ~ 7th Heaven returns, followed by Just Legal, a drama from Jerry Bruckheimer about a young lawyer (Jay Baruchel) and an old lawyer (Don Johnson) who "form an unlikely partnership." Unlikely in real life maybe, but pretty commonplace on TV.
Thursday ~ Ah, you were worried about Clark Kent? Smallville moves to Thursdays at 8 PM, followed by the returning Everwood.
Friday ~ Sitcoms, but Franny was renewed so that's good news. Reba and more Reba. Living With Fran returns to Fridays at 9:30.
Summer series ~ The Closer, starring Kyra Sedgwick starts up June 13th and continues Mondays at 9 PM. The premiere episode will air commercial-free.
TNT is bragging that Sedgwick will be TV's "next great detective".
"Sedgwick plays a CIA-trained, Atlanta detective who has been brought to Los Angeles to head up the Priority Murder Squad, a special unit of the LAPD that handles sensitive, high-profile murder cases."
Co-stars J.K. Simmons (Spider-man)
TNT is also going Into The West with Steven Spielberg for a six-week mini-series, which could the best thing to happen to TV all year - especially if it brings back the horse opera.
Into The West has lots of familiar faces, including Tom Berenger, Beau Bridges, Josh Brolin, Gary Busey, Keith Carradine, Balthazar Getty, Lance Henriksen. Christian Kane, Russell Means (!), Matthew Modine, Alan Tudyk and Skeet Ulrich to name a few in alpha order.
Summer series ~ The Dead Zone returns Sunday, June 12th at 10/9C. DZ picks up from where it left off last year with Johnny trying to prevent the end of the world.
Jennifer Finnigan (Crossing Jordan) will be a regular Dead Zone guest this season.
