Summary:  Two days after security guards stationed at a local radar site spotted a large luminous disc shaped object with a dome on top descend into the woods; another security guard performing his rounds heard sounds coming from the nearby brush. He also heard what appeared to be a low mumbling sound. Then out of the brush a strange creature appeared. It was about 4 ft tall, thin, with long arms, with a head slightly larger than normal and large black oval shaped eyes. The figure appeared to be encased in a soft greenish glow. The figure walked toward the radar site and walked under some high-tension wires then disappeared into the brush again.

Time: late evening
Marko Batau was walking from Chawarura Shopping Center and as he approached the Hunyani River, he saw what appeared to be a white woman basking in the sun and sitting on a rock, half immersed in a pool of water. The woman was naked and Marko was surprised at this. Then he noticed that what he initially thought to be her leg, drawn up on the rock, was actually a scaled fish tail. The woman did not notice him at first, until he deliberately made a noise while walking on the gravel to get closer, and in an instant she disappeared into the water. A few days later, his curiosity aroused, Marko took the same route home. To his amazement, the woman was there, basking on the rock again. But not only that: this time there was laundry laid out on some stones to dry, with some draped over the bushes nearby. Unfortunately, in his astonishment and perhaps some fear, he did not see what type of washing it was, whether clothing or merely pieces of cloth. Again Marko drew nearer to get a closer view. Suddenly, the woman became aware of him and looked at him as though admonishing him. The next thing, she had disappeared in the water. The following week, Marko deliberately took this rather isolated shortcut home. Immediately when he reached the pool on the river, he saw the same creature there. Only this time, she was holding a baby in her arms and giving it a bath. Still puzzled by what he was seeing, Marko tried to draw closer to verify what he was seeing, but the moment the woman heard his footsteps on the gravel, she and the baby disappeared into the water together.

A woman traveling in a railroad car between two metro stations suddenly noted that all normal sound around her ceased, and the light inside the car became dimmer. After looking around she noticed that the passengers were all sitting motionless in unnatural poses, their heads sharply turned to different sides. Stunned she sees a giant humanoid figure apparently examining the passengers. The humanoid had shiny red eyes, and a violet colored face. His mouth is just like a narrow slot. As the train pulled up to the “Leninist prospectus” (Housing complex) station the humanoid vanished and everything seemed to return back to normal.

Time: late night
The witness was fishing at Bluewater Lake and as he sat on a chair by the water’s edge he heard something that sounded like a dog trotting nearby, the trotting stopped and he could not see anything by the light of the fire. He picked up his flashlight and began scanning the grounds nearby. About 35 ft away he spotted something in the light beam. It was sitting on its hind legs with its back to the witness but as soon as he hit it with the flashlight beam it slowly turned its head and looked over its right shoulder directly at him. The creature looked like a wolf but was very mangy and large; it opened its mouth very wide; much wider that the witness had ever seen a dog or wolf open its mouth. Saliva was dripping from its bottom jaw and its eyes were kind of glowing red. The witness pulled out his firearm but did not fire at the creature, which remained totally silent as it stared at him. The creature then scurried into the dark and disappeared.

Date:  January 2000
Location:  Off the coast of Hawaii
Time:  unknown
Summary:  The USS GG 67 Shiloh (A Ticonderoga class missile cruiser) was patrolling the Pacific Ocean when its radar detected a UFO and visually. The object was disc-shaped resembling two deep saucers placed together, somewhat like a smooth image of the planet Saturn. The disk approached the Shiloh and began circling the ship. This alarmed the command staff and personnel. The order was given to use weapons against the object and several AA-class missiles were shot at the alien craft. The disk was apparently struck and it plummeted to the waters close to the ship. A rescue team transported the disk onboard the Shiloh. The disk was about 8.5 meters in diameter. A slit-like door was opened on the top part of the disk. Inside a crew of two aliens was found. 1 was dead either as a result of the impact or an explosion, the second was taken alive. The UFO was then placed on the helicopter pod of the Shiloh and transported to a top-secret location in the continental USA. Both humanoids were similar to the so-called grays but not exactly. They were about 1.5 to 1.6 meters in height, with large hairless heads, small noses, and large black eyes with eye-covering lids, small ears, long muscular necks, very high cheekbones and gray-greenish skin tone. An autopsy of the dead alien was conducted onboard the Shiloh by a team of Naval doctors. The second entity died in captivity approximately one month after the crash, he did not submit any information to the authorities. It is believe that the disc was shot down because it had already some technical malfunction onboard and could not defend itself.

Date: January 5, 2000: Illinois Triangle UFO Sighting


Date:  January 5 2000
Location:  Florissant, Missouri
Time:  0200A
Summary:  Traveling southbound on Hwy 67 towards Hazelwood the witness noticed that a Florissant police officer had a motorist pulled over to the right side of the roadway. Upon closer examination the witness noticed the officer walking back to his cruiser and saw him looking towards the sky near a grocery store. The witness looked towards that direction and saw a huge black rectangle with large windows on the side. The interior of the object was lit up well enough so the witness could tell that the mass of the object was very large. The witness would estimate the object to be as wide as a five lane highway or at least 100 yards wide. Witness also remembered seeing some extremely bright neon or bluish color lights on the exterior of the object. The object passed about 200 feet off the ground nearly directly over the “Schnucks” store and flew over hwy 67 and out of sight. The object made no sound as it flew overhead. As it passed the witness noticed movement inside of the back windows of the object and apparently saw someone move from the interior portion of the craft to look out the window. The witness immediate impression was that it was some sort of military stealth blimp. The witness remembered seeing other colored lights on the exterior of the craft but can’t be certain of the configuration as a result of the distraction by the movement inside the window.

The witness suddenly woke up with a start and noticed a very bright light coming through the window. It was red, green, but mostly white. It hurt his eyes. He also heard a loud pulsating sound. Looking at the window he saw the outline of a figure the size of a little boy, it was gone in an instant. The terrified witness covered his head with a blanket and began to pray. After ten minutes the sound and the lights were gone. Others in the area had seen low flying objects over their farms around the same time.

Date: January 25 2000
Location: Cairo Egypt
Time: 17:00
Summary: I am not the one who witnessed the event, but it is documented in Arabic through this article by the famous Egyptian writer Mr. Mohamed Salmawy and was published online and offline in Al-Ahram (official newspaper in Egypt) 31st January, 2000 http://www.ahram.org.eg/archive/Index.asp?CurFN=WRIT1.HTM&DID=6556 I would love to help trying to document this famous event by translating the article into English and contact the famous writer Mr. Salmawy by email to have more comments about his encounter and the 4 others who contacted him to report it; since there is no UFO entity in Egypt yet. The article goes like this: “I was contacted by Omar to let me know in a calm and precise way that last Tuesday he saw UFOs over Cairo that emitted a very bright white light that doesn’t resemble any electrical light that we know of. –Omar is a good friend of my kids since they were together in school, 4 years back, he graduated from the American University in Cairo, he is now working hard in a media and TV company in Cairo, Egypt– the objects were similar to Neon lights that were floating in the sky, or similar to a huge Frankfurter shape with rounded edges. Omar said that this was not the first time to see those flying objects. He continues that 8 years back he was sleeping on his bed in one summer night and saw a huge light ball outside his balcony with a trail of non-continuous lights. It lasted for few seconds, turned the place into bright daylight then vanished… ..I asked him wither someone else saw what he saw last week and he instantly said that his mom and driver also was there and saw that. They were all in the car on the “Mounib Bridge” going from Cairo to Giza and saw those bright objects above the Giza Pyramids, so they stopped the car and went down to watch better, and kept watching till they disappeared. At that point I myself discovered that I also saw those same lights later during the same night and in the same pattern Omar has described!!… [the writer goes into details about perception theories and how other countries are studying UFOs phenomena since the 40s] [the writer switches to his story] “I too saw the same phenomena later during the same night, 01/25/2000, i was coming back on the Alitalia flight from Algeria via Italy to Cairo airport. we were still far above Cairo with its glittering lights. I suddenly saw this bright light very visible among the relevantly dimmer city lights. Then it dissapeared. It was similar to a big light bulb. I first thought it was coming from the plane’s strobing lights but when it happened again i could tell that it was unnaturally bright. And was moving with the plane and not stationary as i first thought. It was visible that it is a rectangular shape flying just above the ground illuminating the ground as it hovered above land with its very special bright pure white (not yellowish as the rest of Cairo’s other artificial lights). It happened 4 or 5 times between 11:30 and 11:45 then we landed in Cairo Airport and i forgot all about it till I heard Omar’s story.” [the writer also discribes another incident] where another male was abducted into a UFO while he was sleeping in an empty lot in southern Egypt. when he saw a landing UFO and creatures came out and took him inside on an operation table where he was exposed to some rays, later after this incident he started having strange powers like eating and swallowing broken glass and inserting a nail in parts of his body and taking it out from the other side without any trace of blood. And he demonstrated those powers in my office in front of my own eyes. Omar also started feeling those strange powers, for example sometimes if he just rests his hand on one of his friends that person could fall down to the ground with extreme pain! Lately he started noticing that when he holds a cola glass bottle in his hand, the liquid will turn into frozen ice in the middle of the bottle, while stays as liquid above and bellow the area where Omar was holding it. Omar also continues that when he saw the fire ball years back, his brother was sleeping in the next bed and didn’t see the ball, but when the fire ball crossed in front of the bedroom window the sleeping brother punched the air upwards with his fist while still sleeping. And in after the light disappeared in few seconds his arm went back to his side without waking up. Omar remembers that during this incident there was a ringing or beeping sound coming from the tin trash bin in the same bedroom. The sound was similar to the effect resulting of hitting the tin with another metal piece.”

Summary:  The witness was hauling up a line of crab traps off Farlon Island with his dog onboard his 25-foot boat. While leaning over the side the dog began barking furiously. The witness looked up and saw a huge triangular shaped object hovering above him, totally silent. Then a beam of white light hit the witness and he fell backwards onto the sole of the cabin. The grabbed a Rugger 10-22 rifle loaded with a 100 round magazine and started firing at the bottom part of the object. The witness was apparently able to shoot out the light. While grabbing a second clip, he saw a hatch open up on the bottom side of the object and two persons leaned down and yelled “Stop shooting at us you idiot.” He also heard a hissing sound resembling air escaping from a flat tire. The object then moved off to the south. A helicopter then appeared and hovered over the boat. The chopper was flat black in color, and it was silent with no markings on it. As the chopper hovered a flash of light was directed towards the boat. He last saw the triangle gaining altitude and disappear towards the south. The helicopter was last seen heading towards the Golden Gate Bridge.
