“Chasing UFO’s on the River” Bob Talks About His Life After Seeing the Object May 15, 2009

January 2, 2011

www.lasvegasnow.com www.avimoas.com Chief Investigative Reporter George Knapp and Photojournalist Matt Adams One year ago, residents in the tri-state area of Nevada, Arizona, and California saw something weird blaze out of the sky and crash on the banks of the Colorado River, south of Needles. Reports about the needles UFO were sent all over the world and brought a lot of visitors, including men-in-black types to that region. Residents have had a year to think about the object that crashed and to ponder some new, similar sightings from the past few months. A trio of yapping dogs, excited about something outside their Bullhead City home is what caused Tutu Martin and her husband Paul to awaken just after 3 am on May 14, 2009. “The whole bedroom lit up, like they had lights on it, so I pushed the blinds back and looked,” said Tutu. The glowing object blazed across the sky in a southwest direction and appeared to slow down, then speed up. Minutes later, Martin says, she saw and heard a formation of helicopters as they sped south past the Laughlin skyline. “They were definitely following the river heading south. About another 20 minutes or so, they were coming back,” she said. “It was bright — bright enough that it illuminated the ground,” said former police chief Frank Costigan. A few miles away, a cantankerous cat caused Frank Costigan to awaken. He also got a good look at the streaking object, saw it slow down, then speed up, then zip below the horizon. “I expected to

Ufo’s: Fact or Fiction?

August 27, 2010

There is an ongoing debate whether or not unidentified flying objects, more commonly referred to as UFO’s, really exist.

One thing cannot be argued about though, is the fact that there are thousands of Arizonans who have claimed to have seen an Arizona UFO. Thousands of others from around the world have also claimed to have same or similar experiences with UFO’s and have the videos to prove it.

Many people will remember the event that took place back in July of 1947 wherein a sighting occurred. It happened during a severe thunderstorm near Roswell, New Mexico, during an Air Force experiment using high altitude balloons. The experiments caused the balloons to fall to the earth which led to many peoples’ belief that this was no experiment that had gone terribly wrong. Many believed that this was the result of alien activity.

Talk about mass confusion! The entire world seemed to have been sitting on the edge of their seats when they heard the news that the Air Force had a flying saucer in their possession.

Shortly thereafter, the news channels announced that the Air Force did not have a UFO in their possession, but rather had nothing more than weather balloons.

People were skeptical though as many still believed that there was more to the story than what they were being told. Many felt that they had been lied to by government officials and that that the event was a cover up.

Many believers of unidentified flying object enthusiasts firmly believe that on that day in 1947, an alien spaceship really had crashed on earth.

Many people in Arizona were fortunate enough to see the famous Phoenix Lights. If you have never read the story about the Phoenix Lights before, it really is something that makes you wonder if UFO’s really do exist.

Even if you are the most skeptical person when it comes to an Arizona UFO, or anywhere else for that matter, you might just have a different opinion once you read about this major event that took place on March 13th, 1997 when thousands of people witnessed what was believed to be a UFO sighting in Arizona.

There are real UFO sighting clips that makes even the most skeptical person a believer. There are countless stories of people that are so sure that they have seen a UFO.

There are others who think that these people have to be either crazy or are simply making the story up to just to get a little attention.

Fact or just someone pretending? Some of these believers were the most skeptical when it comes to UFO’s. That is before they, too, had a real life experience.

Many people are no longer cynical following their experience that convinced them otherwise. Some individuals prefer to keep their sighting experience a secret, for fear of being laughed at. Some fear even more severe reactions by family and friends that they feel that it would be best if they just kept the experience with an unidentified flying object to themselves.

Whether you are a believer of UFO’s or not, there still remains a lot of unanswered questions which may make the non-believer question it themselves.

Many people who have experienced a UFO sighting have been frightened so badly that they have told very few people. They may feel so haunted by the experience that they have had to seek professional counseling because of the psychological effects that it had on their daily lives.

The association between aliens and unidentified flying objects seem to go hand in hand. Many reports exist of where people adamantly claim that they not only have seen one, but they also claim to have been abducted by aliens and then returned back to earth. Crazy as it may seem, these are real life stories that many people believe.

UFO sightings have taken place throughout the entire state of Arizona in such cities as Tempe, Mesa, Gold Canyon, Superior, Tucson, Flagstaff, Phoenix, and Scottsdale. Many other cities in Arizona have all had similar stories along with other parts of the world.

Again, these sightings are not just specific to Arizona. Virtually every state and several other countries share these similar experiences.

The stories are so easy to find when referencing sightings of these objects. There was a story in California where a man noticed what he believes was a saucer while sweeping his patio. The man was said to have seen a bright light that he had never seen before. He was convinced this was a UFO. The bright light was no ordinary light as it was headed towards him. He was sure this was had to be a UFO.

Whether you believe in these sightings or not, there seems to be enough ongoing debate to keep the notion alive.

UFO formation of red/orange lights sighted in New Jersey by amateur astronomer

January 8, 2009

From MUFON report

“As an amateur astronomer of nearly 20 years experience, this is the second time I have seen something in the sky that is difficult to explain. I was on my apartment stoop smoking a cigarette when my neighbor, who was just coming home after parking his car in our complexs lot, called my attention to something around the corner of the building. I moved to share his line of sight and immediately saw an equilateral triangle composed of six red lights. The lights shone at approximately -2.5 magnitude and covered an area of roughly 9 square degrees in the sky. Three lights marked each of the triangles corners, and three others were arranged outside around them, forming a larger triangle, equal in proportion and orientation to the inner one. As I watched, the individual points were in motion with respect to each other, but the group appeared to hang motionless in the southwest sky. At this point, the approximate alt-az of the lights was 160°(SSE) by 35° elevation.

I ran inside and retrieved my 6×30 image stabilized binoculars to get a better look. The formation had shifted to an irregular lambda shape of five or six lights when I came back outside. Through the binoculars, the lights appeared as tiny points against a backdrop of clouds illuminated by nearby Morristown. They were clearly below the cloud deck compared to airplanes elsewhere in the sky at the time, and appeared to be separate objects in no way connected by a larger structure. They moved steadily in ascending, lateral, and descending directions in a manner that seemed to display deliberate coordination, but there was no noticeable sound of aircraft.

I returned inside again and readied my digital camera after waking my fiancé. By the time I started collecting video, the visible lights had been reduced to three or four and had moved to approximately 130°(SE) by 20° elevation and the formation covered less than the area of the full moon. By this time, eight minutes had passed from when I originally observed the lights. My fiancé and I watched them, with two of my neighbors, as they hung low in the southeast sky, flickering in a tiny triangle. They shifted into a straight line before the individual lights began to rapidly descend beyond tree line one by one. One or two could still be seen hovering near the horizon in the distance before they vanished, leaving only a solitary beacon remaining higher up until it abruptly faded.

If the lights had not ascended during this event, I would have been fairly certain they were some kind of aviation flares, but I cannot confirm, as I am not familiar with that sort of thing.”
