UFO seend and videotaped while hovering over St. Mark River, Florida on 19th february 2009.
Here is what the witness reports :
Florida-02-19-09-I was at a secluded wilderness area on a private hunting club with two other witnesses. Location, St. Marks, Florida, northeast of Highway 98 along the St. Marks river.
At 8:22 PM, Feb.19th, 2009, we had just finished dinner when we walked outside and noticed a very bright object hovering at about 45 degrees, above the tree tops. At first I thought it may have been the bright runway lights on a commercial airliner going into Tallahassee Regional Airport, but realized that was at least 25 miles away.
This object remained almost stationary for a few minutes, then started moving slowly to the south. I was unable to determine how far away this object was due to the object changing in size, brightness, color and density.
I want back to my camper, picked up my digital camera, and jumped on my 4-wheeler. I was determined to find a clear point of view and get some still pictures, at present location the trees were obstructing my view.
The two other witnesses remained at camp, and kept a visual while I took the nearest logging road, which obstructed my view for a few minutes but was able to see this bright object through the trees shortly thereafter.
I saw that it was moving slowly south to southwest, and followed for approximately 3 miles until I was able to get a clear view and take a few photos, which did not turn out well due to the delay and flash. I then turned the camera on video, and shot about 4 videos ranging from 1-2 min each.
Aafter about 30 minutes, the object remained on a south to southwest path, I lost visual due to the trees, so I returned to camp. There I met up with the other two witnesses, and told them of the event.
I was then informed that they had continued to witness the object over the entire duration of my absence, but in a north to northwest direction. It was pointed out to me once again, but only visible for a couple more minutes before completely disappearing.
We then determined that there were in fact two objects, and I had taken after the second one while they were watching the first one. When I uploaded the video, I was surprised to find that once I turned the 4-wheeler motor off, that the audio picked up some sort of signal from the object during filming which I was unaware until the volume was turned up.
Each time the object morphed, it would give off a strange sound which can be heard on the video. I enhanced the photos but was only able to blow up what looked like a globe with a cloudy texture, unlike anything I had ever seen.
The videos were not zoomed in as close as the pictures, but clearly showed a solid object changing from a smal,l solid, bright mass to a large, semi-solid, less radiated mass. This is the 3rd sighting that I am aware of in the last 4 years.
Special report by Michael Cohen from allnewsweb.com :
Buenos Aires: Astonished commuters stopped their vehicles to view one of the clearest sightings of a low flying UFO ever near Buenos Aires in Argentina. The event occurred at 8:41 PM on January 24 2009 besides the heavily polluted Cascallares Dam. Stunned witnesses dived into their cars for cell phones and one even was able to pull a pair of binoculars out of his boot. They then watched the most unworldly of objects rise and descend almost to road level while enthusiastically declaring it a UFO.
One witness, Mr Christian Soldano, was lucky enough to be carrying a high quality video camera with night vision and was able to capture this curious event. His astonishing film can be seen below.
Sceptics have already dismissed the film as being a case of ball lightning and insisting that what was filmed was not a UFO, however South American ufologists note that no other film of ball lighting has ever been produced showing an object with similar characteristics.
Many have observed that this is simply one in a sequence of many sightings involving UFOs and lakes and dams in Argentina, further strengthening the theory that visiting extra-terrestrials are using these lakes to park and conceal their UFOs and possibly build bases here on earth. Interesting also is the fact that in many ways this sighting resembles the recent and extraordinary sighting over Athens that All News Web reported on late last week.
Here is the video made by a videographer on saturday 14th february 2009 of a fireball plunging from the sky over Texas.
Full CNN Report :
Just like some U.S. officials looking into the mystery, the man who captured video of an apparent fireball plunging from the sky over Texas on Sunday is perplexed about what it was.
“I don’t know what I saw in the sky. It was something burning and falling really fast,” Eddie Garcia, a videographer for News 8 Austin, told CNN Monday.
“I’m looking in the viewfinder and I see, just, something flying through the sky. And it kind of looks like it could be dust, it could be something, and then I look up and, no, it was something burning in the sky,” he said.
“And you know, this is something that you see at night clearly during a meteor shower or something like that, but you don’t see something like that during the day.”
Authorities in Texas said there were reports of sonic booms in the area Sunday as well.
Early speculation was that it might have been debris from two satellites — one American, one Russian — that rammed into each other in space a week ago.
But the U.S. Strategic Command, which tracks satellite debris, said it was not. “There is no correlation between those reports and any of that debris from the collision,” command spokeswoman Maj. Regina Winchester told CNN Monday.
So what was it? “I don’t know,” she responded. “It’s possible it was some kind of natural phenomenon, maybe a meteor.”
Meteor fireballs bright enough to be seen in the daytime are rare but not unheard of. Two of the most recent fell in October in the Alice Springs region of Australia and last June just west of Salt Lake City, Utah.
The one over Australia was unique because the asteroid that caused it was discovered and tracked before it reached Earth’s atmosphere, according to the Sydney Observatory’s Web site. It says the asteroid was about 6.5 feet wide.
A sonic boom also was heard in connection with that event, the Australian observatory says.
n Friday, the National Weather Service reported that its office in Jackson, Kentucky, had received calls about “possible explosions” or “earthquakes” in that area.
“The Federal Aviation Administration has reported to local law enforcement that these events are being caused by falling satellite debris,” the service said Friday. “These pieces of debris have been causing sonic booms, resulting in the vibrations being felt by some residents, as well as flashes of light across the sky. The cloud of debris is likely the result of the recent in-orbit collision of two satellites on Tuesday February 10, when Kosmos 2251 crashed into Iridium 33.”
CNN’s call Monday to NASA to get its take on the fireball over Texas was not immediately returned. Garcia said he had been told NASA may have called him.
The FAA had asked pilots Saturday to keep an eye out for “falling space debris,” warning that “a potential hazard may occur due to re-entry of satellite debris into the Earth’s atmosphere.”
FAA spokesman Roland Herwig said Sunday there had been no reports of ground strikes or interference with aircraft in flight. He said the FAA had received no reports from pilots in the air of any sightings, but had gotten “numerous” calls from people on the ground in Texas, from Dallas south to Austin.
As of Monday morning, Herwig said his agency had no information about what the fireball was.
Garcia, the videographer, was out covering a marathon race Sunday morning when he caught a glimpse of the blaze. In the video, it appear as a meteor-like white fireball blazing across the clear sky.
“I remember shooting it and wondering what I shot, and then looking around and seeing if anyone saw it with me, and everyone was just focused on that marathon that we were shooting at the time,” he told CNN Newsroom.
Whatever it was, Garcia said he’s “just grateful I got a shot of it. And, hopefully, that’ll help” people figure out what it was.
Witness Statement: I went out into the back garden for a cigarette and saw 4 x extremely bright UFOs approaching and going over the houses in my street. They were at what I would estimate to be an extremely low altitude and flying in a staggered formation under definate intelligent control. These were definately not Chinese lanterns. There was absolutely no wind at all. I would stake my house on the fact that there will be plenty of witnesses in the general Leyland, Preston area to these objects. I managed to get them on film as well. The time was 19:30 and the sighting lasted around 4 minutes.
