13-074-AN1 (Canada)

Date of Sighting: September 7 2013

Time of Sighting: around 9 pm

Location of UFO: Hagersville Ontario Canada

UFO Report: My girlfriend and I were driving home from dinner at her parents. About 500m from our driveway I saw 4 orange lights in a vertical line to our northwest. The second light from bottom looked out of the line a bit more to the west. As we passed a building they went out of sight and were in a square formation when they appeared again. I told my girlfriend to pull over at this point and she pulled in our surveys driveway and stopped. When we walked back to the sidewalk there were only 3 now and in a triangle formation crossing the hi way in an east direction.  It was only 10-15 seconds they had been out of my view. They made no sound. My girlfriend went back to the car for her cellphone for a picture and right before she got back they had disappeared behind a cloud.  We have both worked at the airport for 10 years and know pretty well what planes look like at night. It was also too low and slow to be a satellite. I have no idea what these were.

Initial Action: Case opened as an FB1.

Investigation and Findings:  Investigation was opened on 08 Sep 2013

Object Details: Case is still oppen.

13-082-AN1 (Kinsman, OH)

Date of Sighting: 09/25/2013

Time of Sighting: 8:02pm

Location of UFO: Kinsman IGA parking lot Kinsman, Ohio 44428

UFO Report:  On 09/25/13 at approximately 8:02pm I was standing in the Kinsman IGA parking lot speaking with a friend.  I was standing, facing the Northeasterly direction when I glanced upward toward the sky.  I saw a bright light that quickly shot a brief distance across the sky.  The object went behind a cloud and did not reappear on the other side of the cloud cover.  The object seemed to be round or spherical in shape but I wasn’t able to distinguish an exact outline.  The speed with which the object moved was extremely quick and would not have been mistaken for an airplane.  The object appeared to be slightly lower than an airplane would have been flying.  I don’t believe that the object was a star because it was much larger and brighter than the stars and it was much lower.

Evidence Submitted: None

Initial Action: Case opened as an AN1.

Investigation and Findings: Witness did not respond to interview request.

Object Details: Unresolved.

UFO Report: Is the same every time ,we / I notice ” moving stars” flying across the sky usually starting from North-East and on several occasions 3-8 have been sighted in groups traveling in the same direction. I have witnessed only the moving star’s and alien spirit’s photo(I recorded this). What have convinced me  is that they will disappear into the outer atmosphere and reappear traveling in a different direction .Only on one occasion (fall of 2011) did I notice 8 traveling at the same moment.Thats it!! no proof but what I saw was convincing enough for me. lolol’s ., oh I did get something that appear’s to be a alien ghost spirit photo’s from my living room but I can’t determine what it is.

13-072-AN1 (El Paso, TX)

Date of Sighting: May 10, 2013

Time of Sighting: 11pm

Location of UFO: El Paso, Texas /westside

UFO Report: After a soft rain with absolutely no lightning, I witnessed a dull orange ball of light presumably rising from the ground about 3/4 of a mile from where I watched. In about 4 seconds it disappeared into the clouds and illuminated them as well.  As it rose towards the heavens, through the clouds, the color seemed to change to whitish, yellow.  After it disappeared into the clouds, the particular cloud it disappeared into moved eastward and disappeared.  The object disappeared approximately 60 degrees in the sky. There was no sound and by my estimations, it was around 6 feet in diameter.  It may have lifted off from the bottom of a desert arroyo as the area where I saw this is heavily populated.

Evidence Submitted: None

Initial Action: Case opened as an AN1.

Investigation and Findings:  Witness did not respond to investigative interview.

Object Details: Unresolved.

Aerial Phenomena set to speak at Mysteries of Sky and Space


The Annual Mysteries of Space and Sky UFO Conference is set to take place in Annapolis, MD on October 26th, 2013. This is the longest running UFO conference in the Washington, DC area. Antonio Paris, per request, will attend the conference and is expected to talk about his new book, Aerial Phenomena: Reviving Ufology for the 21st Century. For more information and tickets, visit Mysteries of Sky and Space now!

Agenda is Confirmed:

  • 8:00: Registration
  • 8:30: Antonio Paris: Antonio is becoming a real “mover and shaker” in UFOLOGY, as he attempts to restore scientific respectability to the field! As Director/Founder of  Aerial Phenomena Investigations, he recently organized the highly successful & innovative UFOCON ’13, and has personally investigated some of the more enigmatic UFO cases extant.  Antonio will share his dream of resurrecting UFOLOGY to a new and exciting, yet more respectful level. He will discuss “Where are all the Aliens? Tough Questions for Believers”.
  • 9:30: Norman Gagnon: MUFON STAR Team Investigator and researcher into  some of the most “high strangeness” cases in UFO history. Norman has appeared on the Discovery Channel, and will update us on the fascinating Chris Bledsoe UFO/alien encounter which was featured on national television.
  • 10:45: Susan Swiatek: Currently serving as the Virginia State Director for MUFON, Susan has been an invited speaker on anomalous phenomena in a host of venues, including  on the nationally broadcast “Coast-to-Coast AM” radio program. She has played a major role in the success of past “Mysteries” conferences, and organized the highly acclaimed 1999 International MUFON Convention.
  • 1 p.m: Bob Swiatek: Rob is without question one of the most respected and knowledgeable UFO experts in the community! His assessment of the July, 1952 Washington. D.C. “saucers over Washington” flap is possibly the most thorough and accurate record of this milestone event ever presented! Rob has appeared on many national radio and TV shows, including Larry King Live, where he received many accolades for his “defense” of Ufology.
  • 2 p.m: John Ventre: John was recently thrust in the national spotlight after his appearance on the Anderson Cooper TV special on UFOs, and was subsequently featured on other UFO documentaries. He has published several books, including “UFOs Over Pennsylvania” and is the MUFON State Director of Pa., and an extremely popular speaker.
  • 3:15 p.m: Col. Thomas McCabe (Retired: USAF Reserve): Tom, a “former believer in flying saucers turned sympathetic skeptic”, is a relative newcomer to UFO conferences. He is a career military aerospace analyst for U.S. Dept. of Defense, and his writings have appeared in a variety of publications, including “Air and Space Power Journal,”   “Orbis,’ “Space News” and “Strategic Review.” His monograph, “China’s Air and Space Revolutions” was recently been published by the Mitchell Institute of the Air Force Association. In the spirit of being “fair and balanced,” Col McCabe will offer a critical evaluation of the saucer phenomena, and has agreed to  participate in a debate on UFOs (to begin immediately after his presentation).
  • 5 p.m: Dr. David Jacobs: Many do not realize that Dr. Jacobs, widely known for his views on “alien abduction,” also wrote a seminal work on UFOs: “The UFO Controversy in America.” in fact, David has graciously agreed to debate the aforementioned Col. McCabe on UFOs at this conference! However, he will also share his reflections on his best selling book, “The Threat,” fifteen years after its publication.
