control. Mr. Matsushita took several pictures of the strange object before it

Rendlesham Forest: Three separate sightings of anomalous lights near a NORAD
base in the UK. Official report filed by deputy base commander, who also taped
the on-site investigation carried out by Air Police detachment. Occurence

further with UFO researchers.

1981 France, Trans-en-Provence:
On January 8, Renato Nicolai, was working on an upper-level terraced portion of
his property at about 5:00 p.m. when he heard a whistling sound to the east.
Turning, he observed an object resembling "a somewhat bulging disk like two
plates glued to each other by the rim, with a central ring 8 inches wide." The
disc passed over two trees adjacent to his garden, descended and landed about 50
meters away. After a few seconds on the ground, the object ascended, kicking up
some dust, and retraced its incoming flight path, once again emitting a low
whistle, and disappeared in the east. As it flew away, Nicolai saw two round
protrusions on the underside like landing gear, and two circular areas that
looked like "trap doors."

silent, hovering object with series of rotating lights. Reports came from many
highly credible individuals including meteorologists, news reporters, and police
chiefs. "Planes in formation" theory still in contention; however, videos taken

differences. Intermittent sightings to this day.

spectacular wave of sightings occurred in Belgium. Sightings were reported
almost daily from October 1989 through July 1990. Witnesses included police,
military and civilian pilots, and air traffic controllers. During part of this
period the Belgian Air Force kept interceptors on stand-by status, equipped with
infrared video cameras, and the Air Force cooperated with civilian groups in
documenting and researching the sightings. In Eupen, Belgium, on November 29,
hundreds of witnesses observed unidentifiable triangular craft maneuvering
overhead. A brilliant light beam from a dark triangular object hovering at 600
to 900 feet, making a faint humming noise, brightly illuminated two police
officers in a patrol car. The object alternately moved and hovered. One officer
said the light was so dazzling "that we could read a newspaper under it." The
object moved slowly in the direction of nearby La Gileppe Dam where it hovered
for 45 minutes. Then it moved southwest about 13 miles and hovered over the city
of Spa for 30 minutes before disappearing.

In 1991, as thousands of citizens in Mexico stared up into the sky at the
eclipse, something unusual was spotted. Countless people claim to have
witnessed, for lack of a better term, what can only be described as a UFO.
Jaime Maussan was born in Mexico City, and earned a B.A. degree in radio and
television from the Miami University in Ohio. He has had a 25-year career in the
media and has received several awards. He is now General Director and Anchorman
of "60 Minutes" Mexico. After the 1991 Eclipse, he received a videotape of the
event that showed a strange, silver disk hovering over the city. Maussan then
asked his viewers to share any unusual sightings they might have had during the
eclipse. To his and everyones amazement, 15 different videotapes, from
different locations around the city and from different individuals, were
produced. No one was prepared for what may be considered some of the best video
evidence collected so far. Since then, Maussan has compiled over 5,000 videos
and photos from eyewitnesses. This could be one of the largest collections of
UFO videos in the world.
Ireland, Boyle: A UFO crashes near Boyle and a NATO task force and the Irish
police capture a crew of five aliens.
USA, Texas: On May 25, A cigar-shaped object with a row of brightly flashing
lights along its length was observed over the Texas panhandle by the crew of a
westward bound America West B-757 airliner. Flight 564 was cruising at 39,000
feet near Bovina, Texas, en route from Tampa, Florida, to Las Vegas, Nevada.
First Officer John J. Waller and a flight attendant saw, off to their right and
somewhat below their altitude, a row of bright white lights which sequenced on
and off from left to right. Waller contacted the Albuquerque FAA Air Route
Traffic Control Center while the sighting was in progress and checks were made
with military installations in the area, but no explanation could be found. As
the airliner proceeded westward, the lights began dropping behind. Then they
observed the phenomenon against a background of dark thunderclouds. When the
background clouds pulsed with lightning, they could see the silhouette of a
dark, wingless, elongated cigar-like object around the strobing lights. Though
they did not know the object's exact distance, the pilot and co-pilot estimated
its length to be 300-400 feet.
