The "This is South Devon" web site reports on November 13, 2004 that "UFO sightings have been widespread in Paignton, with more people witnessing twin lights zipping across the night sky."

They say the Herald Express newspaper was recently contacted by a selection of skywatchers who reported seeing unidentifiable objects travelling silently in unison at high speed, and a man named Ed Rackham, of Paignton, said that while he was working the night shift at SVP Communications, Woodview Industrial Estate, with his brother Joe and three friends, "they were white lights, with no other port or starboard lights flashing, so they couldn't have been commercial planes. They moved in unison, slowly towards Brixham and Dartmouth, and after a short while they gathered speed rapidly, still moving towards Brixham and Dartmouth, until we could no longer see them because warehouses obscured our view."


The newspaper The Winnipeg Sun in Canada reports that among several sightings, was "a whole bunch of disc-like lights hovering on top of a Greyhound bus travelling on Highway 6 between Ericksdale and Ashern last Tuesday" November 9, 2004, said Chris Rutkowski, a leading Manitoba ufologist.


The newspaper The Winnipeg Sun in Canada reports that among several sightings, were several reports received by Chris Rutkowski, a leading Manitoba ufologist, of lights west of Kenora, Ont. A Kenora resident, who wished to remain anonymous, claimed he saw a saucer-like object on Monday. The man said the object was hovering about 18 metres (60 feet) above the ground about 10 km west of Keewatin. He observed the saucer for nearly an hour before it moved fairly slowly across the tree tops.


On Saturday, November 6, 2004, at 7 p.m., Sue Rosinski and her fiance were at her home in Steelville, Missouri (population 1,429), a small town on Highway 8 about 80 miles (128 kilometers) southwest of St. Louis, when they had a UFO encounter.

"About 7 p.m., my fiance was on the porch having a phone conversation when a strange amber light appeared in the southern sky. When it disappeared, he wondered what he had seen but continued his conversation," Sue reported.

"He glanced to the west where three more of the objects suddenly appeared. At that point, he ran into the house to call me outside. When I stepped onto the porch, I immediately saw two of the amber objects and said, 'What the heck is that!?' as I watched them fade out."

"They reappeared after only a few seconds and remained visible for maybe five seconds before again fading out. He said the three objects he had seen had appeared in a triangular shape. What we saw was definitely not airplane lights, as they appeared to be rather close. The objects were amber, not white."

"This is the second time we have witnessed strange things in the sky over this area. Back in August (2004), we were watching the meteor showers and saw a strange glowing orb that at the time we thought it was a meteor bouncing off the atmosphere until the glow subsided and it continued on its path across the sky."

"We have only been at this location since early August, and we are wondering if there have been some aircraft testings going on at Fort Leonard Wood."

On Thursday, November 4, 2004, at 8:45 p.m., the witness was outdoors in his hometown of Eastpointe, Michigan (population 34,077), a suburb 10 miles (16 kilometers east of Detroit, when he "saw it coming from the northwest."

"It looked like a white B-2 bomber, same kind of swept-back wings. It was 500 feet (50 meters) above the rooftops and traveling at an estimated 200 to 300 miles per hour (320 to 480 kilometers per hour -- J.T.) The object departed to the southwest. I kept it in view for several minutes."

"As I am an airline pilot, I'm hesitant to say something about what I can't explain," wrote P.A., an airline transport pilot with 14 years' experience in commercial aviation. And he can't quite explain what he saw at 11 p.m. on Wednesday, November 3, 2004.

The jetliner P.A. was flying was making its approach into San Francisco (population 776,733), one of California's largest cities. The jetliner was approaching the city from the east, passing just north of Stockton, when P.A. received instructions from the tower to descend from 35,000 to 24,000 feet (10,500 to 7,200 meters). And then it happened.

"While approaching San Francisco from the east," he reported, "an orange dot began to glow and seemed to flash higher up (about 30 degrees -- P.A.) to the west of us. I thought that it was a planet. It then changed color from orange to white. Again, I thought a planet could be illuminated through a (local) atmosphere that would explain the color change."

"It then began to move in a northeasterly direction. Once again, being in an airplane, it is very easy to think an object is moving, from small corrections the autopilot makes. I found a handful of stars to serve as a reference point and verified that the object was slowly moving north. It moved about 30 degrees and then stopped. Then it made a slight tangent to the right (about a 10 degree heading change -- P.A.) and continued moving for about 20 more degrees."

"It stopped and turned again to the right (another 10 degrees -- P.A.) and continued for 10 degrees, then stopped again and disappeared."

"The whole sighting ran about two minutes or so from start to finish. It was difficult to judge the actual distance and speed. When I talk about 'moving in degrees and turning,' I am talking about my (cockpit) viewpoint and compass degrees."

"The (UFO's) size was very small, about the size of the stars and planets you see in the sky -- a point of light."

"We had initially been at 35,000 feet (10,500 meters) but had descended to 24,000 feet (7,200 meters) when we saw the object. We were above the clouds with a clear view, and there was a crescent moon behind us. The weather in San Francisco was partly cloudy skies and light rain."

"There were two of us in the cockpit, and we both witnessed the same thing. We were both in awe. I have been flying for 14 years and have seen weather balloons, meteors, planets, strange cloud formations, aircraft in unusual positions and the like. I have never witnessed something like this before."

On Wednesday, November 3, 2004, at 9 p.m., Lorne Seaton and his wife were relaxing in their hot tub out in the backyard of their home in London, Ontario, Canada when they suddenly sighted some UFOs.

"It was an extremely clear night," Lorne reported, "My wife and I were watching air traffic while sitting in our hot tub. While watching some local air traffic, we witnessed three gleaming, spherical, highly-polished objects pass directly over us. At first we thought 'Plane or satellite?' or perhaps falling stars. But they were far too fast and in the wrong direction for that."

"The objects were spherical-football-shaped in nature, opaque and aligned as if in a goose (V) formation. Their height appeared to be lower than the usual air traffic. They moved in a straight line but extremely fast."

London, Ont. (population 325,646) is on Provincial Highway 2 approximately 132 miles (211 kilometers) southwest of Toronto, Canada's largest city.

On Wednesday, November 3, 2004, at 10:34 p.m., Sean K. was "driving west, heading home from work" in Plum, Pennsylvania (population 26,940), a town on Route 286 about 12 miles (19 kilometers) east of Pittsburgh, when he saw something strange approaching from the west-southwest.

"Driving west and observing the clear sky, I also noticed two bright white lights close together approaching from the west. I thought they might be headlights from a plane, but the altitude was lower than a commercial flight. The object seemed to be heading east and slowly. I turned north and kept the object in my sight out my driver's side window."

"I suddenly lost sight of the object and was looking around for it when I noticed it right above my car."

"This was not right because the distance it had to travel was too great for any known aircraft to cover the ground the object was going before I lost sight of it the first time. I was then observing it through my (car's) sun-roof. When I went back to the road and looked up, the object was gone."

"I reached home two minutes later and looked outside for several minutes but failed to find anything. The sky was pretty clear with only a few overcasts coming in at around 10:45 p.m. The height (altitude -- J.T.) was about three-fourths of what a commercial jetliner would be, and the object seemed to be the same speed or a little bit slower."

Ufologist Barb Campbell mentions via the newspaper The Lloydminster Meridian Booster, Lloydminster, Alberta, that on November 1 an anonymous person claimed to have witnessed an unusual sighting along Highway 26 near Maymont.

"A brilliant low light in the sky seemed not to be moving," said the 38-year-old witness. "My father got the camera out and ready to take a picture when it disappeared, instantly, like they shut off the lights."
