Observation reports March 2003:

Some of the UFO observations and ufology news in March 2003 are listed on this page. Please note that these are not studies, but second hand observation reports, although mostly obtained from reliable and well known sources.


TUCSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT - The spectator was waiting for her flight, looking out the north windows and saw an airliner about 30,000 to 35,000 feet up flying east. She reports, "The jet was at a more northeasterly point on its path when the two spheres appeared to pop out of the blue lower to and behind the airliner by the Catalina Mountain peaks from 2:00 to 2:04 PM, in the afternoon on March 31, 2003." The spheres dropped down a bit, seemed to stay still for some seconds, and were moving slower than the jet. They also moved in an easterly path with the higher sphere disappearing about 30 seconds after first noticing the UFO. The witness who has excellent credentials states, "When these objects suddenly appeared, I was surprised at their spherical shape and the shape of the jet was clearly recognizable, but these objects were not recognizable as any known aircraft." I called over to a woman in the room to come see this, and she saw the two spheres, the jet, and the one sphere disappear and the jet fly out of her sight to the east with the second object also having disappeared before the jet was out of sight."

"The spheres were the same size, and the size of a lower case "o" . The spheres appeared as white but also illuminated uniformly from within - not as reflected light, no flashing light, or lights. The spheres did not glow. The suddenly appeared in mid air literally out of the blue. The objects were not in any formation. One sphere was higher in the sky and to the left of the lower sphere."

NUFORC's Peter Davenport notes: "The witness who submitted this report is well known to us, she has had considerable exposure to the subject of Ufology, and we consider her to be unusually reliable."

LOANHEAD - On Mother's Day, March 30, 2003, the witness and his Mother were near Edinburgh and looked out the upstairs rear window overlooking the Moorfoot Hills, when they noticed fireworks fairly high in the not so distant sky at 2:27 AM. It was more like a flare, as the extremely bright pink glow did not fade at all. It stayed stationary in the sky about one mile away. The witness states, "My Mum and I saw a glowing bright pink object float slowly to the ground and pass behind the horizon, after a few minutes in the same direction, we saw a very bright blue flashing light like the type used on a police car." It just seemed like a blue "earthly light" flashing brightly in the distance. But the previous pink light was far from that, we originally thought it may have been. It was completely silent. This all lasted about twenty seconds, but was definitely something we had never seen before."

Thanks to Peter Davenport, NUFORC.


NEW BRIGHTON - The spectator reports seeing a star like object moving from the west to the east on March 30, 2003, at approximately 8:05 PM. It was traveling in a perfectly straight line at speed and there was no sound whatsoever.

NUFORC Note: We observe that the International Space Station passed just south of the UK, traveling from west to east, at 20:52-22:58 hours on this date. For ground track details see, http://www.heavens-above.com (The witness may have observed the ISS? PD)

STANWOOD - At 8:30 PM, the onlooker saw a huge triangle shaped craft going from north to south from his living room window on March 30, 2003. The witness stated: "the flying triangle was the size of an aircraft carrier and looked to be traveling in and out of the cloud cover at about 12,000 feet! There were three white lights that each looked the size of the moon. It was moving very slow with no noise. I was looking to see if it was going to appear from around my tree but it vanished in thin air. My dog did not bark and even the frogs kept up their noise."

SPOKANE -- Judge Ed has taken a series of spectacular UFO photos. Kathlene A writes, "I tend to be a skeptic. I have talked with him on the phone and he seems down to earth. I am not sure why a judge would open himself up to public scrutiny knowing it could affect his career, if he did not believe there was something there. So I guess he does feel he has something very important. He also told me he has been fascinated and has studied aircraft for many years. Spokane Is part of the 'old' continent and contains a lot of uranium and radon gas. Its ironic that about a year ago Lujan Wong, a scientist from a university in New York, experimented with going faster than the speed of light using a derivative of radon gas. Could there be a connection? We keep planning on meeting with the Judge in person and I will make a trip soon. Another point. I have talked to some people up in the Deer Park area about things that have been seen over the years. One farmer saw a definite UFO when he was younger. His Dad and sister were pursued by one in 1965 down a dark country road in an isolated area called Blind Valley. My friend had a "light" explode in the middle of the night. It was one of those globes you touch and it puts out streams where you touch. The people here are up early in the morning and early to bed farming. But the skies are clear as the altitude around the valley is about 2500 feet. In March 2001, I was in a car with two others when we were following a red light silently traveling west and over the mountains. We could not see the object but it was no more than 200 feet. Then a very large black shadow went right over the car in the opposite direction. I mean bigger than any barn owl. It was very bizarre. I also have a report about two witnesses who saw a Huge golden orb coming down toward a local mountain and back up again.

IRIGA CITY - Eye witnesses report seeing two strange cigar- shaped objects flying in the sky just above Mount Asog on March 29, 2003. The cigar changed color alternately from yellow to blue then to red. Then after a few minutes of observation from about five kilometers, those two strange cigar-shaped objects disappeared in the clouds at 2:00 AM.

CAPAC - The witness reports, "I woke up to take a pain reliever at midnight, turned on the TV and sat on the living room couch facing the window, when a creature ran across my porch on March 28, 2003. I quickly jumped up and looked out the door to see it run around the corner of my house on the porch. It was of average height, but had abnormally long arms. Its arms and legs were somewhat spiny and it had a larger than normal bald head. I did not get a good look at the face but I could tell that it was not human. Within a few seconds of this, the lights went out and I could see two large blue spotlights in the sky moving as if it was searching for something. The spotlights were in the field across from me about 800 feet. As they moved away, the power came back on. This morning I called my friend and she said, "Her electricity and lights had gone off and she also saw the blue lights in the sky. She then told me that people around here don't talk about these things."

WINCHESTER - The observer was driving eastward on Highway 7 in a rural area at 5:45 PM, on March 27 2003, about halfway between Winchester and Berryville. The witness states, "My wife and I both saw an extremely shiny metallic-looking object flying northward about one mile ahead of us. The object was traveling at about 400 - 500 mph, based on my experience as a licensed airplane pilot. It was very low, only about 200 feet above the tree tops. It was difficult for me to determine a distinct shape, but my wife, who had more time to observe the object because I was driving, said it was cone-shaped or bullet-shaped. The object traveled in a straight line and at constant altitude until it was no longer visible over the tree-lined horizon after observing it for about 10 seconds. We heard no sound."

Thanks to Peter Davenport, NUFORC, and George Filer, Filersfiles.


MANISTIQUE - The witness noticed a very large object compared to anything else in the sky. He states, "It was a perfectly round bright red circle with a tapering green tail." The sighting took place at 1 AM, against a clear black night sky over Lake Michigan, on March 27, 2003. It was due south of Manistique Harbor and was very bright and very distinct. It had clean edges, with no glow or haze. It appeared to be traveling straight down, and suddenly disappeared. It was very high above horizon, and appeared large, but I could not tell its true size or distance."

On Thursday, March 27, 2003, between 6 p.m. and 6:40 p.m., "a UFO was filmed flying over the small city of Rondonopolis," in the state of Mato Grosso do Norte in western Brazil. "Videographer Laurindo Guedes Jr. and Joao Jacka were working in their photography store at the Mikekinos Building in Rondonopolis when they spotted a luminous object in the sky. The UFO was disc-shaped and had a bright spot in its center. Guedes grabbed his video camera, rushed outdoors and caught the strange flying object in his viewfinder. He obtained 10 minutes of videotape showing the maneuvers of the UFO in the skies above this Brazilian city. The UFO suddenly departed at precisely 6:40 p.m."

"Another UFO was reported flying over Ponte de Pedra," a small town on the Rio Sacuiuina, also in Mato Grosso do Norte. Rondonopolis is about 400 kilometers (250 miles) west of Brasilia, the national capital.

CARLSBAD - The eyewitness was driving one mile east of Interstate 5 on Palomar Airport Road. at 2 PM, when he looked to his left and saw a triangular craft wobbling and flying slowly at about 40 mph toward the south. The flying triangle was about three hundred feet above the landscape on March 26, 2003. The craft looked like it was totally stainless steel, and had no visible windows. The witness states, "It suddenly tilted and I could see the whole tail edge was lit with a very bright light, like the lights of a night baseball game." There were no clouds in the sky and the craft just disappeared in one-second though it was no more than a half mile away. There was no sound from the craft.

"Note about five years ago while driving at night in Carlsbad my wife and I saw a bright comet like fireball emitting splashes of bright light to its rear traveling about 50 mph in a southeasterly direction towards Rancho Santa Fe going cross country following the contours of the land. There was no road that it followed. This was four miles from the above sighting."

Thanks to Peter Davenport, NUFORC.


COQUITLAM, BC - The witness who reported the sighting had just stepped outside to have a cigarette and said he noticed this "thing" out of the corner of his eye on March 25, 2003, at 8:55 PM. The witness said the craft was seen just above the clouds after it broke into a clearing in the night sky. He described the object as being very large, black, and triangular in shape with three points of light on each of the objects tips. Also noted about the object was that it moved very fast and was totally silent. The craft was flying roughly east to west. The object was seen just above the cloud cover (at 11,000 feet according the weather channel.) It then broke into the clear sky. The witness was located near Burnaby Mountain over the 401 Freeway. The witness says, "I was shocked at what I was seeing, plus its tremendous size, you could place three jumbo jets into the object easily."

MORTON - Several days earlier, two observers had the sighting of a UFO, that was about half the size of the moon. The observers are a 20-year-old server at a restaurant and her boyfriend a college educated 31-year-old worker in construction. They were driving on Highway 12, just west of Morton at 3:50 AM, on March 23, 3003, when they saw a cloud of smoke with an electric blue pulsating sphere shining from within. The witness said, "The driver, noticed my head movements, and looked skyward at the object and said, "Do you see that?" I responded, "Yes". The lights and "smoke" moved around, constantly shifting its shape. The objects size appeared to be massive. It was about one-half the size of the moon. The object held its position high in the eastern sky for one or two seconds. It quickly moved to the south a short distance, stopped, and changed course several times before flying west at an incredible speed. This object/light was not a reflection of light on the cloud, like a beacon. It was coming from within or behind the cloud. An electric blue light was visibly pulsating behind a wispy cloud, much like the model atom I have seen with two electrons rapidly rotating around the nucleus. The object appeared to be creating its own black cloud to shield its light. I was deeply awed and scared at this point."

"The object spastically moved five degrees to the south, then northeast, then up to create a tight triangle type movement. It then shook spastically once again and flew away rapidly directly (west) over our heads. I have never seen anything move like that and had keen sense that this object was observing me as I observed it. The moment I panicked and my heart jumped into my throat, was the same moment the object spastically moved and flew away. When the object noticed we were watching it, it flew away. Both of us were very scared."

The witness eMails to me on 03.24.2003:

"There must be tens of possible explanations but I would like to report the following observation of yesterday evening to you."
At about 10:00 P.M., close to Caen (Basse-Normandie), I looked at the sky and the stars. I am used to locating satellites. Suddenly, I see two luminous dots, not flickering (similar to satellites, same speeds) going in the same direction, from East to West while I was looking towards the North, their trajectories being slightly shifted and one seeming to follow the other (5 to 10 seconds later). I find that odd. My eyes follow the first, and all of a sudden it disappeared."
At this time, with the rather clear sky, I expect to see it appear again. I watch the second one, and arrived at the same place where the first disappeared, it also disappears."

"I did not see them anymore. I keep watching the place of disappearance. I can distinguish a dark zone there between stars. Insulated clouds? I do not know. Anyways, they never reappeared. What may be the explanation? Revolving satellites?"


Joel N. reported to UFO Wisconsin from Madison, in the Dane county, about his observation on March 23, 2003 10:30PM:

"I was at a friend's apartment on the west side of Madison WI on March 23rd of 2003 (last night). I recently purchased a pair of 16X70 binoculars for stargazing and terrestrial viewing. The sky was finally clear for a couple nights after days of clouds and I wanted my friend to check out Jupiter. We went out his patio door and my friend was attempting to look at Jupiter through my binoculars. I was talking about how I could see Saturn earlier in the evening when I suddenly saw six dim reddish lights in a "V" formation moving slowly from the south. Three on one side and three on the other. I said to my friend "What the hell is that?!!" He started to say "That's an airpla..." when he realized that there was absolutely no sound, the lights were not flashing and it was way to close and large to be an airplane with no sound. I would guess that if I held my hand out at arm's length it would appear to be just smaller than my hand. I grabbed my binocs from him to take a closer look and I couldn't see it in my binocs at all. I took the binocs away from my eyes and said "Where the hell did it go?!?!!" he pointed to it but I couldn't see it anymore and then he told me that it had disappeared. He must have gotten a slightly better look at it than I did. He said it never changed pace or direction. At first we both decided that it must have been a flock of birds reflecting red light from the city. I think we were both eager to write it off with a simple explanation. After we talked about it we agreed that the speed and formation of the dim reddish lights were perfect the whole time and most likely rectangular shaped. I have seen birds flying in formation at night before and this did not look anything like that. I seem to remember hearing the sound of a woman screaming somewhere nearby just after I said "What the hell is that?!!". Maybe someone else in the apartment complex saw it and freaked out? I did a search on the Internet to see if anyone else has seen anything similar to this today and I found an article about the possibility of a secret Military "Stealth Blimp" that could match the description. I looked at a drawing taken from Popular Mechanics Magazine of what this secret aircraft could possibly look like and it's amazingly close to what we saw. There is a military airbase near Madison so... maybe it was some kind of secret aircraft. I am going to talk to my friend about it more tonight, keep my eyes on the skies and a camera nearby."


FORMOSA - Francisco Fazio reports, "We have received many reports of cases of cattle mutilations throughout the state of Formosa, in Northern Argentina." Officials do not allow publication of these stories, and we only have unofficial reports from farmers, witnesses and agricultural producers. The authorities quickly dispatch the police, photograph the animals and send info directly to SENASA Formosa and the evidence to INTA, (National Institute for Agricultural Technology) in Buenos Aires. Similar mutilations are being reported in Paraguay.

GAINESVILLE -- Two witnesses saw a UFO in the sky over the University of Florida on Saturday evening March 22, 2003: "My friend and I went out for a walk southwest of Lake Alice on a beautiful clear night perfect for watching the stars." Around 10 PM, one witness states, "I happened to look up and there was suddenly an ellipse-shaped dim object flying straight from northwest to southeast at very high speed. I immediately told my friend Xi, so she saw the same thing fly over and disappear in the southeast. We saw the object for a total time of about five seconds. Only two or three seconds later, when we were still looking at the sky and wondering what we had seen, another ellipse-shaped dim object flew straight by from west to east at about the same speed. It crossed the first UFO’s path at an angle of 25-30 degrees. We both saw the two objects clearly and surely. They looked gray, bright, outstanding in the dark sky. There were no flashes from these two objects, and they seemed much higher and flew much faster than normal planes. We suspect these objects were UFOs based on our analysis."

SANTIAGO, March 21.- Several unidentified flying objects were reported at noon by dozens of persons in the commune of Providencia, Santiago.

The phenomenon remained over the skies over the corner of 11 de septiembre and Marchant Pereira streets for several minutes and vanished as suddenly as it appeared.

A group of lights hovered directly over the city, above the intersection of 11 de septiembre and Marchant Pereira.

Various witnesses to the phenomenon made it known to Terra.cl's UFO channel. According to them, the sighting involved a large circular object of intense brilliance which was accompanied by other, lesser objects. Some witnesses claim having seen up to seven such objects around it.

UFO researchers received many phone calls shortly after the event was recorded. Up to now, the authorities of the General Office of Civil Aeronautics have not produced any explanations for this event.

On March 20, 2003, at 2 a.m., about 40 people working the night shift at a local factory were on break when they spotted a UFO over Kolbiel in central Poland.

"They all watched a large flying object in the shape of a droplet, which was moving without making a sound," reported Polish ufologist Tomasz Wierszalowicz. "The object moved slowly from a high altitude down to the ground. While it was near the ground, the people saw a red circle of light, a kind of halo or glow, moving over the terrain as if the object was shining a spotlight."

Many thanks to Tomasz Werszalowicz of Polish UFO Reports for this news story.


CHIHUAHUA -- Roland Michel Tremblay writes, "Three times already UFOs came out of El Cerro del Pueblo Mountain near Chihuahua and the famous Zone of Silence." The last sighting happened very recently and was witnessed by most of the small village Villa Lopez. The mountain is one of the most important deposits of barite, a barium bearing mineral that exhibits more gravity than any other mineral with no metallic constituent elements with the exception of uraninite. After some research we have discovered that most UFO activities take place where barite/barium deposits exist. The UFOs appear to get out from the top of the mountain as if they travel through a wormhole or an inter-dimensional window. The barium could be what gives them the necessary energy to accomplish this, as if the barite deposit was utilized as a huge superconductor to channel gravitational / electromagnetic forces from the core of the earth. More and more witnesses are coming forward and now there are reports of travel in time to the year 1645 and some sort of alien underground installations under the mountain El Cerro del Pueblo. Many sightings and other paranormal phenomena have been reported, and it has been happening for more than 50 years. You can read all my correspondence with the main witness Mr. Gonzalez Ponce at http://www.crownedanarchist.com/elcerrodelpueblo.htm. We are also looking for experienced investigators willing to go there by their own means to see what they could find. If you can talk about this case around you it would also be helpful as we need to reach people who witnessed similar events. Please do not hesitate to contact me.

Venezuelan ufologist Arturo Escalante reports that late Wednesday evening, March 19, 2003, "a teenaged couple observed the maneuvers of a circular UFO over the outskirts of the Avila hill in Urbanizacion Mariperes, a suburb of Caracas," the capital of Venezuela.

"The strange object, festooned with flashing lights colored green and yellow, was seen between 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. It made a short vertical rise which culminated in an instantaneous departure to a neighboring mountain peak."

According to Colombian ufologist Edgar Arce, on March 17, 2003, during a UFO watch sponsored by the group Contacto OVNI, "eighty witnesses were present and saw several orange-colored UFOs hovering and performing aerial maneuvers over Mount Juaica, in the Tabio region near the city of Cundinamarca."

EDMONDS -- A pilot reports that he was returning from the beach with his Golden Retriever when he saw two bright landing lights coming towards him at 7:30 PM, on March 16, 2003. "The craft was flying northwest at a very low level only 200 to 300 feet above ground level (AGL). They were about one mile away traveling just above the tree level about 20 MPH. I saw three bright lights and they were on the bottom corners of a black triangle (about 100-150' to each side). I was standing in the middle of a park, with the craft heading straight for me. At that moment, I decided that I would not want to become an abductee statistic and said out loud "I'm not ready for this!", so I quickly made my way to the closest trees for some cover. I looked back and it was gone. It was as close as 250 yards and traveling at about 20 MPH with no sound. This happened about 5 miles south of Paine Field - my home airport, with-in their Class D airspace. I have contacted Paine Field Airport Management and they are researching their radar tapes and talking to the tower personnel for that time period."

In Brazil, "daylight UFOs were photographed as they flew over island Porchat and later over island Urubuqueraba in the South Atlantic." The islands are just offshore from Santos, the main seaport of Sao Paulo state. "These objects were of a spherical shape, colored silver, and had small interior lights."

Muito obrigado a Pedro Teixeira, and thanks to Joe Trainor, UFO Roundup.


According to Colombian ufologist Edgar Arce, "on March 15, 2003, between 10:45 p.m. and mdnight, the witnesses had seen orange lights in the distance, which later seemed to dim in intensity. Then, minutes later, they observed small red and blue lights flying up from the ground into space for a period of 10 minutes."

Muchas gracias a Daniel Munoz para esas noticias.


PIQUA -- A sphere shaped UFO was seen at the Upper Valley JVS in Piqua, Ohio at about 2:30 PM, on March 15, 2003. "The craft was spherical and very shiny flying at an elevation of about 2000 feet. It hovered in one spot for about four minutes and then shot off eastbound suddenly. Minutes later it returned at a lower altitude moving slowly in circles. Visual contact was lost when I had to enter a building."

On Saturday, March 15, 2003, at 1:45 a.m., the eyewitness, Camasse, was outdoors in her hometown of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania (population 43,123) when she "saw a white glowing disk flying around by the full moon. It flew at a downward angle and stopped. Went upward and stopped. Then it went from left to right. It also went in and out of the clouds. I watched it for five minutes."

Wilkes-Barre, Pa. is on Interstate Highway I-81 approximately 112 miles (179 kilometers) north of Philadelphia.

CHELMSFORD -- On March 14, 2003, the witness was looking in the sky and saw an unusual object: "You can see it at a 4 o'clock direction from the moon now at 6:10 PM! It looks like a bright cigar that does not move." It is staying in the same position but the witness was unable to get a picture.

Thanks to Peter Davenport, NUFORC.


PANAMA CITY -- Three boomerang shaped objects were seen hovering over the Gulf of Mexico on the evening of March 13, 2003. The witness was at the beach looking at the view at 11 PM, and saw a flash of light out of the corner of his eye. He quickly looked and was very shocked to see it had the shape of a boomerang or a sideways ’V’ above the water. It was fire orange with no distinctness about it. He says, "I thought it was quite strange, but I figured it was a flash from a boat, that stayed there for a few seconds and slowly went away; then another one appeared and went away all in slow motion, and then another showed up. I had no idea what this was. All day jets had been flying by and I thought maybe that was what it was, but these were silent and bright orange (jets aren’t orange). I have no idea what I saw. I read there was a similar sighting in the fall of 2001, near Panama City. It was a sight I will never forget."

On Thursday, March 13, 2003, "a large white illumination travelling from west to east at 1,000 feet (300 meters) in altitude" was seen at One Mile Beach in Anna Bay, located 30 kilometers (18 miles) from Newcastle, New South Wales in Australia.

The witness reported, "My wife and I witnessed it at 8:08 p.m. We were walking along the beach in a westerly direction, approximately two-thirds of the way to the westerly end of the beach, where we watched a 'low star' appear over the sea, west of One Mile Point, a hill approximately 80 meters (264 feet) high. The 'low star' appeared in the west and travelled in a horizontal plane to the east directly across our facing path, at what seemed to be an even and regular speed. The object travelled west to east in an unchanging direction and horizontal plane at a height of no more than I estimate at 300 meters (1,000 feet), then it suddenly stopped, then disappeared directly to the south in less than a second or so."

"I liken the speed to that of a military helicopter. In fact, I thought the object was a helicopter with its searchlight, as several of these aircraft have been flying regularly in our vicinity for the past few months. This object was not a helicopter."

The witness estimated that the UFO was "some 1 to 3 kilometers" (0.6 to 1.8 miles) away."

Many thanks to Joe Trainor, UFOroundup, and John Hayes and Australia's National UFO Hotlines for this report.


The Xendra, a luminous blue arch reputed to be an extraterrestrial interdimensional gateway, has appeared again, this time in northern Brazil.

According to Brazilian ufologist Eustaquio Andrea Patounas, the weird glowing arch appeared on eight consecutive evenings over the grounds of the Maceio Mar Hotel in Maceio, the seaport capital of the state of Alagoas. The Xendra appeared just hours after a UFO was seen flying over the city. (See UFO Roundup, volume 8, number 11 for Mar 12, 2003, "UFO flap sweeps Brazil," page 5.)

"For the last eight days (Sunday, March 2, 2003 to Monday, March 10, 2003) a strange blue portal has appeared," Patounas reported, "It was also seen by fishermen just offshore, who radioed questions about the phenomenon to the maritime authorities. It was an interdimensional portal that energized and appeared to move and hover over the sea just offshore. This is the first time such a thing has been seen in Alagoas (state)." Another witness living in the bairro Ponte Verde in Maceio's east end reported that he first noticed "a strange bright glow" over the lengthy beach to the west of his neighborhood and then "saw the blue arch."

The Xendra was seen for the first time nearly a year ago in Los Cipreses National Park, near Rancagua in Chile. A Chilean UFO group, holding a weekend seminar in the park, saw the luminous blue arch materialize over their campsite. Twenty-four of the participants claimed to have entered the portal where they encountered bald-headed aliens wearing long robes. (See UFO Roundup, Volume 7, Number 16 for Apr 16, 2002, "The Xendra mystery," page 1.) So far the Xendra phenomenon has only been reported in South America.

Maceio is on Brazil's South Atlantic shore, located about 1,050 kilometers (630 miles) northeast of Rio de Janeiro. (Muito obrigado a Eustaquio Andrea Patounas e otros por eso caso.)

LOS ALTOS - Sighting occurred at 1:45 AM, on March 10, 2003, when the witness looked out the bedroom window, there appeared this strange craft. The observer states, "I swear it had the appearance of NCG-1701 'Star Trek' and it suddenly 'poof' there it was where there had just been empty night sky." The ship's forward area (the round construction) was glowing a fuzzy lime green, while the rest of the ship was dark without lights on the periphery. I would estimate that the size of this thing was very large, in that if I held my hand at arm's length, the object would almost have filled in the space of 4 fingers (thumb tucked). Unfortunately, the sighting lasted for less than 5 seconds because it just as suddenly disappeared 'poof'-- again.

CZALESKI - I just chanced to look at a particular part of the sky at 7:45 PM, on March 10, 2003, just in time to catch a look at this object. It was perfectly round orange sphere and unusually large for a meteor I thought. It had no tail whatsoever and was orange in color with dark spots in it. It fell slower than a meteor would and I stood waiting for a boom, but heard no sound. He states, "That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it."

MILTON - It was about 10:30 PM, on March 10, 2003, the witness was taking out the trash when he had a strange feeling just before seeing a large dark triangle shaped object that was at least 80 feet long. It was about 50 feet wide at it widest point, with a large bluish light on the bottom of each tip of the triangle. The witness states, "I could actually see that the bottom of this thing was not smooth, but had form and small dips and valleys in it like something machine/manmade. I heard a faint hum and was in shock because it appeared to be only about 200 feet high with a blurry haze around it. I looked down to clear my eyes and looked back up and it was much smaller. I looked down again to clear my eyes from the light and looked back up and it was gone. It was like a dream, but I don't think I was dreaming, but I felt impending doom."

On Saturday, March 8, 2003, at 6:30 p.m., "a yellow-orange UFO was sighted by Cynthia Saavedra and other witnesses in the city of Xalapa, in (Mexico's) state of Veracruz. Señorita Saavedra reported that the UFO 'was brilliant and luminous, with an equally luminous jet emerging from the tail.'" "Srta. Saavedra and the witnesses had the object in view for 10 minutes before it disappeared from their sight. A short while later, it was followed by 'a second object of similar characteristics' which was 'accompanied by a small brilliant orange sphere.' Up to 15 people in Xalapa witnessed the unusual phenomenon."

WINDHAM - The witness was outside at work with others at 5 PM on March 8, 2003, when a coworker called for them to look up in the sky. The witness states, "We saw a turquoise colored sphere moving slowly across the dark sky. It appeared larger than a normal aircraft and the light was much bluer than a typical plane. It moved slowly and seemed to turn gray right before it disappeared."

ASHLAND - "While driving to Columbia MO. at around 10 PM on March 8, we spotted a bright star in the sky just above the tree lines about seven miles away from it. The object did not appear to move and as we got closer it had several white lights. When we came right up parallel to it, the object seemed to be hovering over a field with a protruding spot light. As we passed the object, we turned to view it from our back window. A bright red light flashed on the top of the object and one on the bottom. Then, after a minute or so, the lights began to flash all around the bottom of the craft, which made it appear to be spinning. We continued to watch when all the sudden the craft quickly crossed the highway and caught up with us instantly. It flew close but after a couple minutes the craft disappeared behind the trees."

NEW MARTINSVILLE - Five men were standing outside at 8 PM, on March 8, 2003, and noticed an orange compact disc shaped object moving very quickly through the air. It had a slight zigzag to it's movement but there was no exhaust trail. "There were no blinking lights to indicate an air plane, plus it moved in a way too erratic for any aircraft. The center was not as lit as the outside edges were. All of us saw the shape. At one point, we moved because it was starting to go behind some trees. Three of us went one way, two of us went another. From about a hundred feet apart, all of us saw it until it disappeared into the horizon."

Sonia writes from Austin:

"I just want to let you know that I've seen some unidentified objects in the sky in Texas. I rarely get to see a clear sky any more, because Austin has been under a constant blanket of chemclouds for a year. We've had a daily barrage of chemtrails since June 1999. But for about a year now, we've had seven weeks of unremitting coverage of chemclouds blanket with only 1 1/2 days of sun. That is then repeated. Therefore, my sightings are very limited. I first saw them in the summer of 2000, they had not yet begun to spray during the night. I pointed the UFOs out to my neighbor when we were outside. She had binoculars, which was how I was able to ascertain that one was emanating color, and moving in a zigzag fashion."

"There are usually three UFOs that are multi colored brilliant spheres. Two are stationary, and the other moves between those two in a revolving, zigzagging manner. They emit colors of green and red. They might be some type of satellite to keep track of us or measure the contaminants that they have spewed out, or they might be extraterrestrial. Two nights ago the sky was clear enough to make out one that appeared stationary, but was emitting colors. I watched for about 15 minutes and it was still there when I went to bed."

Thanks to Sonia and to Major George A. Filer, ret, "Filer's Files."

PRINCE RUPERT, BC Brian Vike reports on Friday, March 7, 2003, at 7:30 PM, a father and daughter were outside when they saw this bright white light shoot over towards Mount Hays. Traveling southeast for two to three seconds, it just blinks out when it was over Mount Hays, it was the brightest white light that we have ever seen. My daughter told me that she had seen almost the same thing just two weeks ago while with her friend Patricia at 4:30 AM, the object they saw wasn't as bright as this one, but also blinked out over Mount Hays.

HBCC UFO Note: This sighting "might" be easily explained as a meteor, but after receiving so many reports for Northern British Columbia, I am not putting this down to a meteor just yet.

COLUMBUS - An ATP-rated Learjet captain was flying as copilot in a Cessna Citation II, on March 7, 2003, at 0515 GMT when he saw three bright lights in a triangular pattern hanging in the sky to the north near Cassiopeia, at an estimated altitude of 45-49000 feet. The witness was flying at 39,000 feet and asked his partner if he was watching, he said yes. "The lights were all of a greater relative magnitude than Sirius perhaps equaling or greater than Venus in brightness. After about 5 to 10 seconds, the lights began to move eastward, accelerating rapidly and fading from view simultaneously (may have been receding?). No aircraft in my experience has ever accelerated so quickly. We believe it was one object though no details could be made out between the lights. It might have been three separate objects but they would have had to have been maintaining a precise formation during acceleration." Both pilots have been flying aircraft for over 15 years, and neither had ever seen anything like this.

Jean-Jacques YVARS collected the following testimony and asks that other witnesses contact him at ovniscience@aol.com

The observation took place on March 7 2003, at 00:15 in Paris, Levallois-Perret, Place George Pompidou, under a clear and starry sky, by four witnesses. One of them writes:

"A friend and myself observed what first appeared to be an airliner passing in opposite direction of the planes which usually fly in an airlane located at the vertical of Place G Pompidou. What draw our attention was not the noise of its engines but the flickering of many lights. As far as I am concerned, I heard a vague engine noise (rather a discreet whirr) during two or three seconds when the machine was at our vertical, then nothing anymore; my friend did not hear any noise, which made him say that it "slipped in silence into the night."

"It flew much lower than the planes which usually fly over the place."

"I noted 5 large headlights from which emanated a very brilliant white light under the belly of the machine. They were laid out in the following way: 1 headlight at the front and four headlights in lines of two behind him. Further back of these headlights, there was like sone sort of a series of flashing lights - red and green on the ends (like the wingtips lights of the planes) and between two coloured fires of the ends, at least 5 white flashing lights."

"The craft looked massive and of dark color and I had the impression when seeing part of the fuselage of the flat rim which left at a peak forwards, that it was of triangular shape. It moved slowly in the direction of CLICHY and at this time we only saw the flashing lights which seemed to be at its back."

"The observation lasted some thirty seconds."

"Two young people were beside us and seemed astonished by the unusual aspect by this particularly luminous "plane." I specify that at this time the passing of planes is rare. I observed only one propeller plane twenty minutes later, after I returned at home, which flew in opposite direction of the craft that I observed."


BUENOS AIRES - Ufologist Ricardo E. D'Angelo reported: "On March 6, 2003, at 7:35 p.m., a UFO was seen in Rufino."


A small alien was sighted near a Roman Catholic high school in the barrio Caspana (neighborhood) of Calama, a small city in Chile north of Antofagasta. According to Chilean ufologist Jaime Ferrer, "In late February, a group of Catholic high school students, most of them 15 years of age, reported seeing a strange being near their campus. They heard strange noises on the rooftops of other houses in the neighborhood. They saw a strange figure standing 1.2 meters (3 feet, 9 inches) tall. The being appeared to move around not by walking but by making small leaps." (webmaster note: an owl?)

On Wednesday, March 5, 2003, "several people reported seeing another UFO over the local airport in Calama. This object appeared in broad daylight. Yet it was bright enough to be quite noticeable by a great number of people in different parts of the city."

"The first report came from people standing at a bus stop next to the Ekono Supermarket, in the northeastern section of Calama. Each eyewitness noticed that the object appeared to be white and was about the same size as Venus but several times brighter. According to eyewitnesses, the bright object appeared, and then it would disappear in a synchronized manner every 5 to 10 seconds, apparently without moving in any direction. The UFO sighting lasted about three minutes."

"A taxi driver named Carlos reported seeing the same object from the opposite side of the city, in barrio Caspana," on the southwest side of Calama. These sightings have been happening so often and, for the most part, in the same area, which has caused many people to jokingly call the area Ovnipuerto. (Spanish for UFO Port-- J.T.)."

CHINO VALLEY - On March 5, 2003, A black object was sitting on the dirt road (or hovering just above it) at the top of the hill in front of two observers at 9 PM, who stated, "It was at least as big as a school bus but didn't seem to be made of anything solid." It was like a black and gray cloud that moved like an octopus. It came around to the side of our car and passed over the hood and windshield no more than 10 feet off the ground. It made no sound at all. It followed us for about half a mile and we were spotlighted in a bright, white light that must have been above us. Then it was gone."

WESTLAKE - While on the job on March 4, 2003, two workers observed three craft flying over at a very high rate of speed. "We both witnessed the three craft as these objects flew toward the Northeast. What really shocked the both of us was that they were transparent! I could see the clouds right inside of the craft."

WENATCHEE The witness was taking out the garbage on March 3, 2003, when he saw a bright light in the western sky at 10:40 PM. "The light was too bright and within a matter of seconds the object almost seemed to zero in on me dodging left and right in an unfamiliar pattern at various speeds. I called to my girlfriend to come and see it. As she came to the door we both saw a large circular structure or sphere with bright white lights on the left and right sides, a red at the bottom and a sort of blue or green at the top. The craft traveled about five miles away to 50 feet above my head in probably 20 seconds. I am a retired software consultant. I have been very skeptical/analytical about supposed "sightings" for the great part of my adult life. But what I saw tonight will change my reality forever. My girlfriend is a college student/waitress. She witnessed the event with me and concurred with my description."

On Monday, March 3, 2003, at 7:55 p.m., two men from Houston, British Columbia, Canada (population 3,934) "were travelling by truck along Provincial Highway 16 just east of Houston. Just before they got to Perow, B.C., there was a huge farmer's field which runs for a long way, with a buffer of trees (shelterbelt in the USA--J.T.) between the field and the highway. The passenger 'first noticed a large object parallelling them along the highway.' The driver looked at the speedometer and said he was doing 50 kilometers per hour (30 miles per hour). The distance between the witnesses and the object would have been approximately 300 to 400 feet (90 to 120 meters)."

Both the driver and his passenger "described the object as looking like an Airstream trailer and the size was close to a Greyhound bus. The object stayed straight across from the truck as they drove along. It paced the vehicle. The passenger rolled down the window to see if he was able to hear any sound coming from the object. But none was heard."

"After approximately 750 meters, the craft turned slowly from the highway, wobbled slightly, sped up, wobbled once again and then shot off out of sight very quickly."

Thanks to Canadian ufologist Brian Vike for these reports.


CUYAHOGA FALLS - The witness was taking his dog out at 10:15 PM, when he saw lights in a "V" formation moving quickly and silently on March 3, 2003. He states, "I saw a 'V' shaped formation of 12 to 15 lights traveling very quickly northwest. They were traveling, silently, and in a few seconds were out of sight. The individual lights though staying in formation seemed to flit around. It made me think of a group of clear spheres flying in formation with a single firefly darting around in each one, if you can imagine that."

MOOSUP - It was 4:10 AM, and the witnesses were driving north on Route 395, on March 3, 2003, when they saw a square or triangular shape object. "If you place your forefingers and thumbs together you will see a shape like this <>. There were lights at each "point" and a band of light blue lights that connected the four. Bright white and blue lights were moving around the craft. The sky was full of stars but in the center of the craft was blackness. I yelled at my husband to stop and go back, but he wouldn't because we would be late for work. He later admitted to being afraid. It was just hovering above Route 14 making no sound. It was 300 feet away and was 50 feet on all four sides or around 200 total feet, or the size of a foot ball field."

CALAMA - On Sunday, March 2, 2003, many people in Northern Chile saw a bright object fly across the city and a similar object appeared the following morning, This object was very bright and appeared to suddenly change speed and direction. Calama was the site of hundreds of UFO sightings in 2001 and 2002. Many eyewitnesses had time to get their binoculars to get a better look at it." "A local television channel began broadcasting live images of the object at 3:30 p.m." for two hours on Sunday, February 23. Catholic high school students reported seeing a strange alien being near their campus. Various other sightings of alien beings have been reported to the Centro UFO de Calama.

BRASILIA - The Distrito Federal which is home to the capital is now in the midst of a UFO flap. The first sighting in the D.F. took place on February 4, 2003, "when a UFO hovered 100 feet away from a witness." Four days later, "a silver UFO was hovering in the air" in a rural district of the Distrito Federal "just a few meters off the ground." On March 1, 2003, at 10:15 p.m., Aurezio Galo, 33, who lives in Gama Leste, fetched his binoculars to observe a round object with red, orange and white colors around it that pulsated and rotated. On March 8, 2003, "a UFO was sighted in Maceio," a large port city at around 6:30 PM, crossing over the city, with a luminous aura that pulsed at regular intervals. Inside the aura was a misty blue and yellow object. The UFO moved in a zigzagging trajectory for one minute."
