Two UFOs 'size of a car' low over Cheviot, Ohio

  • May 10th, 2011 11:33 am ET
The witness first noticed "piercing white and red lights shining brightly through the small windows at the top" of the front door. Looking out the door window, the witness "saw white and red lights all in a row and on a slant passing above the house." She then ran through the home and looked out a back window.

The mysterious object can be seen in the top left corner of the main picture in the sky above Melrose. And, below, a blown up version of the image.
IS IT a bird, is it a plane - or is it in fact a UFO over the skies of Melrose?
An eagle eyed photographer, who we agreed not to name, spotted the strange shape high above the Waverly Hotel on Monday afternoon about 3pm.
And despite contacting both the Met Office and the Ministry of Defence (MOD), neither could confirm any military exercises or weather balloons operating in the area.
Describing the strange phenomenon, the camerman said: "At first the photo doesn't really look like much, but what makes it curious, is when I zoomed in on it, it seems to be moving pretty fast at around 45 degrees towards the sky - as you can see by the close up it appears to have a tail showing the direction.
"The first thing I thought of was lens flare, but I was at the side of a large building in the shade, with the sun out of sight at the front of the building. There was certainly no flare in the lens. I thought perhaps it was a weather balloon or maybe even some sort of military exercise going on in the area."
But when the Border Telegraph contacted the Met Office, a spokesperson said: "We can't confirm if it was a weather balloon the man saw, as we don't have any record of there being a balloon in the area at that time.
"Also the nearest weather station that releases balloons is near Newcastle, so it seems unlikely. We can't rule out the possibility it was a balloon, but from the description given and the place it was seen I think it's unlikely."
And a spokesperson for the MOD declined to comment on the sighting.

UFO Sightings on the Rise in Finland

UFO sightings are becoming more frequent in Finland. UFO enthusiasts catch glimpses of hundreds of unidentified objects annually, but most of them turn out to have a logical explanation. Ufologists doubt that the armed forces are concealing information about their own sightings.
A typical UFO sighting involves noticing a bright light moving strangely across the sky in the dark. Hardly anything else can be said to describe the phenomenon, says Lasse Ahonen from the UFO-Finland organisation.
Ufology has been Ahonen’s hobby for the last 46 years. A mere photo is not enough proof for him.
“We always need basic information about the pictures. The internet is full of mere images.”

UFO Sightings In Asia On The Rise

According to many UFO experts, the rise of UFO reports and alien encounters is on the rise in certain spots in Asia. Ever since the economic world crisis, the shifting of power to Asian countries has brought some of them to the media’s attention. Some say not just the media, but extraterrestrials are beginning to take notice in the upsurge.
What does this mean? Probably that most of us will be introduced to the stories from ‘UFO nuts’ from across the world.
I don’t mean to sound rude, that wasn’t the point. I guess I’m just trying to say that no matter where in the world you are, you will always hear stories from those who desperately seek attention. Of course, this is only the small percentage. There are those who actually do report –and sometimes record– UFO activities from around the world. These are the ones who don’t have anything to gain. But why Asia? Why now?
According to the Wall Street Journal report, Asia is now attracting more of the world’s investments as well as possible UFO interest.

KAO KALA, Thailand—Everybody from fund managers to jet-setting diplomats is talking about the world’s center of gravity shifting to Asia. Now, extraterrestrials appear to be taking notice, too.
Trackers in Colorado at the Mutual UFO Network, one of the oldest unidentified-flying-object research organizations in this world, say that since the slump of the Western banking system in 2008, UFO sightings among Asia’s fast-growing economies have accelerated. Suspicious UFOs have shut down airports in China, buzzed resorts in Borneo and lit up the night sky in Myanmar.
All of that is dealing a fresh blow to the prestige of the U.S., which, as the DreamWorks animated movie “Monsters vs. Aliens” observed, “is the only country aliens ever seem to visit.”
“It’s not surprising, really,” says Debhanom Muangman, a 75-year-old Harvard-educated physician and one of Thailand’s leading UFO investigators. “Aliens have been coming to Asia for decades, but now they sense a change. This is where the progressive countries are, so they are coming here much more often now.”
Extraterrestrials first hit the public imagination in a big way in Thailand in 2006, when villagers in the rural northeast found discarded fever-cooling gel packs and mistook them for visitors from outer space. One woman told local newspapers she cooked a gel pack and served it to her children in the hope that it would make them more intelligent.
In Nakhon Sawan province, 160 miles north of Bangkok, scores of UFO enthusiasts now regularly camp out on a hill known as Kao Kala, which they regard as a kind of Stargate to another dimension. It’s a diverse group, including medical students, interior decorators and a soap-opera actor who goes by the name Pete.
On a recent evening, devotees wearing necklaces depicting alien portraits trooped to the top of the hill to harness extraterrestrial energy to treat illnesses by laying on hands, or to meditate before a statue of Buddha. Periodically, people jumped up with video cameras when planes or other, less obvious, light sources appeared before settling in for a night of chanting.
“The aliens have been coming here to Kao Kala for at least 10 years,” said Dusadee Prasomsuk, 39 years old. “When we meditate we can understand what they’re trying to tell us—we feel it through our bodies and we understand.”
Regardless of whether aliens exist, the slew of sightings is providing yet another measurement of how the world is changing as Asia becomes wealthier and more successful.
Seth Shostak, senior astronomer at the SETI Institute in California, uses radio telescopes and other advanced equipment to scour the universe for signs of intelligent life. He reckons the growth of Asia’s economies is one of the primary factors contributing to more and more UFO sightings.
“I ascribe this simply to two things,” Mr. Shostak says. “The greater reach of TV, which means that more people have seen television specials dealing with UFOs, and the widespread availability of the Internet, which allows people who would formerly describe strange sightings to their neighbors to now send me an email.”
Dr. Debhanom in Thailand, for instance, says he saw his first UFO in New Hampshire when he was training to become a doctor in the 1950s. When Dr. Debhanom returned to Thailand he heard about many more sightings as the country went through its economic boom of the 1980s and 1990s and media networks expanded to include cable TV and, more recently, the Internet.
Still, these aren’t American-style alien encounters. The aliens that Thai researchers say they have encountered bear little resemblance to the typical creatures depicted in Hollywood films, which have included resource-grabbing monsters or eerily calm, environmentally friendly creatures.
The aliens that allegedly visit Southeast Asia tend to have a rather different view of the universe, following Buddhist precepts such as reincarnation and greeting one another by cupping their hands together in the shape of a lotus flower.
After years of trying, Dr. Debhanom says he finally made contact with bona fide aliens one morning at 2 a.m. in 1996. Surprisingly, he recalls, they called him on the phone, using an ordinary land line.
“They said they were from Mars and spoke a strange version of Thai. They also said not to worry about the phone bill,” Dr. Debhanom recalls.
