Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over: Alabama, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Minnesota, Montana, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia.
Sightings of UFOs were also reported in: Atlantic Ocean, Australia, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, France, Germany and England and Scotland in the United Kingdom.
The purpose of these files is to report the UFO eyewitness and photo/video evidence that occurs on a daily basis around the world and in space. These Files assume that extraterrestrial intelligent life not only exists, but my hypothesis is that the over a thousand UFOs reported each month represent technologically advanced spacecraft conducting surveillance of Earth. I personally became interested in UFOs when London Control ordered me to intercept one over England while flying for the US Air Force and Prince Phillip told me of his personal interest in UFOs. The US Air Force investigated UFOs for more than twenty years under Project Blue Book; and I continue this advanced research. I believe the God of the universe has spread life throughout the cosmos and UFO’s are visiting us in ever-increasing numbers.
Filer’s Files are now being emailed to 17,000 addresses each week plus 500 copies are forwarded to more thousands. Consider forwarding them to your friends and neighbors.
Dedicated to 5 year old Georgie Filer V whose motto was “Be Happy” and Eddie Pedrick my grandsons who drowned, and daughter Elizabeth Lynn died March 8, 2013. and
Dr. Victoria Filer who died April 27, 2013.

On the right is Steven Bass who arranged the excellent Citizens Hearings on Disclosure. I was impressed by all the speakers and the retired Congressmen and Congresswomen. I wish they were still in office, but I will be sending them my weekly files and hope they will pass them on to their friends. The main ballroom of the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. was converted to look like a Senate hearing room for the five day hearing,. The Hearing Committee included former Senator Mike Gravel (D-Alaska), former Congresswomen Darlene Hooley (D-Ore.), Carolyn Kilpatrick (D-Mich.), Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.), and former Congressman Merrill Cook (R-Utah). These intelligent people have seen the evidence by forty experts and know the phenomenon is real.
I had a pleasant conversation with Congresswoman Carolyn Kilpatrick who told me she was very moved by the testimony of pilots as well as from the other witnesses during the week. She said,
“I’ve heard some of the most intelligent, scientific and universal knowledge on the topic that I didn’t know I was going to witness. Yesterday, we heard from 12 different countries who have hundreds of years of scientific intelligent information on this subject.
“It behooves us, as human beings, in what is known as the greatest country in the world, to participate in that discussion. To not act like something exists and then to further act like it’s a joke, we do a disservice to our ancestors, to God and to the people of the world. “I want the world and the universe to continue. And if there is something out there — and I’m not a scientist — there’s a whole lot we don’t know. I think it’s ignorant of any people not to seek out what we need to know to continue the universe. “I was convinced before this morning’s panel that there probably is something out there, and I’m willing to work the rest of my life to see that, if it is, how we can enhance the universe to see that we all have a better quality of life.”
By Ashley Davis, Fri, May 03, 2013
During a meeting held by UFO advocacy group Paradigm Research, six former congress representatives were paid $20,000 to reveal their thoughts about UFO sightings and extraterrestrial visits.
Former Sen. Mike Gravel (D-Alaska) said, “I believe that the White House is hiding the truth about “extraterrestrial influence that is investigating our planet.”
“It goes right to the White House, and of course, once the White House takes a position, ‘well there’s nothing going on’…it just goes down the chain of command, everyone stands toe,” he said. Gravel pointed out that many former military officers, like retired Air Force Capt. Robert Salas, have seen UFOs and observed them disabling nuclear weapons. “The smoking gun of the whole issue, which is when they saw hovering space craft in Wyoming and South Dakota over the ICBM missile silos that the missiles couldn’t work,” Gravel said. “What we’re faced with here is, in areas of the media, and the government too, an effort to marginalize and ridicule people who have specific knowledge.” After he was asked about the fact that he was given money to make a speech, Gravel insisted it did not influences his agreement with the testimony.
“This is an opportunity which I’ve taken to focus on this issue for an entire week and the preparation I made in coming to it, for my enrichment that’s very important,” he said. NY Daily News
Visitors From Outer Space, Real or Not, Are Focus of Discussion in …
I spoke with all these panel members who had excellent presentations. Peter Davenport, director of the National UFO Reporting Center, who recounted eyewitness reports of UFOs hovering motionless and able to change direction more quickly than earthly technologies would seem to allow.
Peter Robbins, a researcher and lecturer, who told about the Rendlesham Forest Incident in the U.K., where U.S. Air Force personnel said they witnessed a UFO.
Gary Heseltine, a former U.K. police detective, who has collected sightings from police officers stated, “I now have over 425 cases involving over 940 British police officers,” Heseltine told the panel. “Over 70 percent of these cases are multiple-witness-officer cases.”
Linda Moulton Howe, a researcher and filmmaker who studies livestock mutilation, brought slides of horses and cattle that had been stripped of flesh and their organs removed surgically, and were left on soft patches of earth without any surrounding tracks. Howe said.
“Ranchers have seen the glowing discs put beams down. Ranchers have seen the animals rise,” Thanks to Chris Good.
Dan Travers writes, “After I came to the Discovery of Life on Mars website, I then scrolled down to this landscape photo on Mars. The West Valley of the Columbian Basin in the Gusev Crater has what looks like a creature or statue in the sitting position when zoomed in. The photo was taken by the “Mars Exploration Rover Spirit” in November 2007.”
Because of the Creature, I often looked at this photo and I decided to zoom in on the mountain in the distance just out of curiosity. Zooming in it appears to be a lake. You can see that it seems to be lower than the surrounding landscape in which is indicative of land around water. I increased the brightness and contrast to bring out any detail. There are ripples in the water as to indicate wind is hitting on its surface.
Nine days later, I found an even “larger resolution” and at closer range, it is more of a “Hill”, than a mountain. Also, it’s more of a “Pond”, rather than a lake. On the website that says “The Discovery of Life on Mars” under the INTRODUCTION area, is written and underlined: photograph by NASA-JPL was PIA10214.
It takes a while to download the photo. It is about little over two and a half times larger than the other one. The other one is 5,000 by 1,367 Pixels and this one is 12,756 by 3,487.
Here, the photo of the immediate landscape, the hill, the pond and a small portion of the sky. On this page, because this is the original color and it’s at a distance and therefore, had to zoom in, is a bit dark. In my personal binder book, it is in two sections because; it is a little larger than the enhanced previous one of brightness and contrast change.
Over time, NASA has continued to dismiss that there is liquid water on Mars. I wonder what their excuse will be about this one. There have been apparently other people that have found liquid water on Mars, however to my knowledge, no response for these people from NASA. I just happen to “so far to my knowledge”, be the first one to find it in this area by “ZOOMING IN”. Thanks to Dan Travers of Montrose, New York, MUFON UFO Researcher and Amateur Astronomer,
Nancy Talbot sent this eyewitness UFO case in Poland resulting in apparently deposited “stones” subsequently determined to be vitrified soil. Multiple “drilled” holes (some quite deep) in general area were also discovered in conjunction with UFO sightings. In each case the soil removed was missing altogether: .
In August 1998, Mrs. Kuss thought she was seeing a meteorite, but the object was descending too slowly, at 2:00 AM. It even “stopped” for awhile, and would then continue its descent. The fiery object, which was 150 meters in front of her windows, appeared to be only 3–4 meters across.
” It was glowing like a piece of [hot] iron in a field.” She told her family about it the morning and showed them where it landed. The object was retrieved by her 11 year old grandson Milosz, who found 10 to 15 “stones” placed in an “irregular” circle on top of the grassy area. They were the size of a basketball or slightly smaller. There were no traces of anything burnt. He took smallest stone in the middle of the irregular ring of stones, the other green stones like a green glass bottle were too heavy for Milosz to lift back to the house.
A day or two later he took a wheelbarrow to pick up the rest of the “stones,” but they were all gone. I don’t think they were taken by people, but by an object that landed here. Milosz reported a few additional details, in particular the fact that the one stone with sharp edges he had retrieved “glowed green” on these edges for about half-a-year:
The piece Milosz recovered was more black than green by 2003, but still had multiple fluorescing light-green inclusions which were visible in good light

Israel Attacks Syria
TEL AVIV, Israel ALEXANDER MARQUARDT reports, on May 4, 2013, sraeli warplanes struck weapons inside Syria that were bound for the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, American and Israeli officials say.
The attack, which reportedly took place Friday morning, was the second such strike this year; further raising fears that Syria’s two-year civil war could spill over into neighboring countries.
News of the strike comes as graphic evidence emerges of what a watchdog group says are scores of deaths in fighting and mass executions by forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad in and around the coastal city of Baniyas. Hundreds are reportedly fleeing amid fears of further sectarian-fueled violence. Israeli officials told The Associated Press that the targets of the strike were sophisticated “game-changing” weapons, including long range ground-to-ground missiles.
Israel has repeatedly warned that it would not hesitate to act to prevent its enemies from getting their hands on weapons, particularly chemical weapons.
“Syria has large amounts of chemical weaponry and missiles. Everything there is under [regime] control,” Gilad said.
Israeli jets also bombed a military research facility north of Damascus Sunday and missiles hit an ammunition dump containing chemical weapons in the Qaysoun Mountains on the edge of Damascus. Heavy explosions shook the city according to rebel spokesman as Israel struck Iranian-supplied missiles that were en route to the Hezbollah militia in Lebanon. TV showed a fireball rising into the sky after Sunday’s strikes. Syria responded angrily to the air strikes warning that the attack “opens the door to all possibilities.” Israel has not claimed responsibility, but moved anti-missile batteries to the north and shut down the air space to civilian flights as tensions rise. Thanks to ABC.
STS-61 was the first Hubble Space Telescope servicing mission, and the fifth flight of the Space Shuttle Endeavour. The mission launched on 2 December 1993 from Kennedy Space Center restored the space borne observatory’s vision, marred by spherical aberration, with the installation of a new main camera and a corrective optics package. The flight also brought instrument upgrades and new solar arrays to the telescope. With its very heavy workload, the eleven day mission was one of the most complex in the Shuttle’s history and snapped this photo of a triangle in space. Astronaut Musgrave who was on the mission was rumored to going to talk at the Citizens Hearing. Thanks to NASA.
I’m Sorry to say my Daughter’s Dr. Victoria Anne Filer and Elizabeth Lynne Filer passed On
My lovely daughters both passed away during the last few months due to illness. I’m suffering from the agony of separation from them and they are greatly missed. The world will be darker place without them even though I have accepted they have moved on to a better place. They gave me the gift of faith and realization that there is a Giver of life.
And I think faith is a gift that provides strength and happiness. I discovered I can be sort of happy of even now. It’s not always easy, but you can choose to be content, and in the vast majority of circumstances there’s no one who can stop you from happiness except yourself.
I was blessed seeing them born and going on to be with the Lord.
Benjamin Franklin probably said it best,
“Finding myself to exist in the world, I believe I shall, in some shape or other, always exist.”
The truth is happiness doesn’t come from wealth, perfect looks or even a perfect relationship. Happiness comes from within. This is why, if you truly want to be happy, you need to work on yourself. I just lost both my lovely daughters that have caused me great grief, but I believe they are up there with the Lord helping in my mission in life to expose the truth about the UFO phenomenon. Our lives are a marvelous succession of wonders and I was blessed to have them. I still have my memories, a loving wonderful wife and son.
Remember to let your loved ones know you appreciate and love them; life is more fragile than you know.
In my Father’s house are many mansions, if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you with me that you also may be where I am. John 14:2–4
There will be a Memorial Service at 3 PM Saturday May 18, 2013 at the Come Alive New Testament Church, 240 Old Marlton Pike Medford, New Jersey. You are all invited.
Sightings in the United States
MONTGOMERY – I was driving over an overpass on I-65 with clear skies when I noticed a bright object on May 6, 2013, as I went around a curve in the road. Object had a white center increasing yellowish hue to edges with thin red outline. I was traveling at 35 MPH with the two miles in front of me at 5,000 feet AGL. Object moved away from my direction of travel in a straight line increasing to over 4,000 mph. Object turned increasingly red as it moved away and turned completely red at last visible location. Visually it was about the size of a basketball when first observed and was the size of a star when visibility was lost. Best guess of total distance object traveled before losing visibility is about 15 miles. It either stayed at same altitude or descended slightly. Thanks to MUFON CMS
NILAND — My husband and I had just gotten married in Las Vegas and we were on our honeymoon sight-seeing in the nearby states. We arrived in Slab City at Salvation Mountain on April 25, 2013, at about 2:30 PM. I gave a donation and turned to take a picture of the awesome man made mountain. It was then that I started scrolling through the pictures and saw a UFO. I did not see it. I screamed and giggle hysterically because I had FINALLY caught a UFO after looking towards the sky for years.
My new husband thought it was a helicopter, so I enlarged and zoomed in on this awesome photo and even he HAD to say it was no helicopter! We drove to Roswell and acquired the MUFON brochure and here I am. Thanks to MUFON CMS
CLERMONT — My friend and I saw six weird lights in the sky in the same general area on May 4, 2013. We were on a side road off of highway 27 just north of the Citrus Tower at 8:37 PM. They were silent and seemed pretty close. I snapped this picture and you can see three of them in the picture. We have no clue what it could have been.
Note: The photo shows three of the lights in triangular formation. It is not known if the lights were part of a craft or were separate. Thanks to William Puckett, Director http://www.UFOsnw.com
FALL RIVER — Around mid afternoon I was sitting in my backyard with two other people when I noticed a Cessna type aircraft overhead on May 5, 2013, While looking at the plane I noticed that at much higher elevation there were three round like objects. One was red the other two were white and all were reflecting sunlight.
They were heading south at first then the red one slowed down considerably and the two white ones continued on in close proximity to each other before one changed direction rather abruptly and accelerated west.
The other maintained its speed and continued south. I lost sight of the red one while it was still pretty much overhead. The strangest thing was the direction change and acceleration. Thanks to MUFON CMS
MCGREGOR – He spotted among many photos ‘’taken on March 29, 2013, from 2:19 until 2:40 PM, this strange face in the clouds. The witness states, ‘I am finding UFOs nearly daily
I think it is you people who need to study my photos on Facebook. For the last two years there are thousands of shots of these UFOs. I know I am not the first contact. Thanks to MUFON CMS
BROWNING — William Puckett reports, “I called the witness regarding a sighting of “strange lights” in the sky that occurred on April 19, 2013.” She said that, “These strange behaving lights have recently been noted on many nights and have been witnessed by family members.”
The witness was assisting her brother-in-law and sister with calving” operations five miles south of Browning and all cows were checked and fine at 4:30 AM. At 7:10 AM, after sunrise the animal was found mutilated and her calf was also dead. The only blood found was around the mouth where precision cuts had been made. Predators would not touch the animal. The witness snapped several photos a few hours after the mutilation was noted. No “UFO” activity was noted at the time of the mutilation but unusual nocturnal lights had recently been noted on several nights. Correction this report was from William Puckett, Director
New Jersey in front me 250 feet up.
EGG HARBOR — I was sitting on my back porch watching the doves in the trees on April 9, 2013, I saw a small object coming from the left about 250 or 300 feet off the ground across the trees in front of me above my house. It then looked like a bird to me at first then it looked like balloons and then it got closer, I could see what it was, it looked gun black, about 10 feet round and 6 to 8 feet tall. It looked like a thread bobbing, it flew across the sky, the same speed and until it went out of my sight. It took about 30 seconds to go from left to right, absolutely no noise, it blew my mind. I could not believe I saw that in the sky. I live two miles from FAA center in New Jersey. I have seen every plane that the Air Force has flown over my house, it was not a plane. Thanks to MUFON CMS
WOODBRIDGE — I was standing on my porch and looking up at the sky on April 28, 2013, when out of nowhere this odd shaped thing flew over my house. At first I thought it was some sort of falling material. I just watched as it with no sound no light and no emission. This has not been the first time I’ve seen a UFO by my house but this was very odd and was so much different than the others. It’s hard to explain. Thanks to MUFON CMS
GRANBURY — Walking out to my car after work. (Parking lot at the Waterview Senior Living Center next to the Hilton. There was a red light blinking in the sky and it caught my eye that kept changing colors on January 17, 2013. The object was triangular/boomerang shape that seemed to have three distinct sides with a hollow center. Its motions were up and down and side to side. It was silent but very fast. I was perplexed as to what it was and became somewhat giddy with an adrenaline rush when I realized I could not identify the object. I lost sight of the object when it just disappeared. One second it was moving erratically and changing colors, the next it was just gone. I got in my car and went home. Thanks to MUFON CMS
I got up early to take a picture of the grass I cut so after I snapped a picture on April 23, 2013, something told me to look up to the left then my heart stopped and I felt scared.
It was a saucer picking up or dropping something I had chills and wanted to leave my cousin was stuck but saw it then it move so fast or vanished right there and we ran but I took a picture if you blow up in the upper left above the tree it’s there but I can make out the beams and all. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Worldwide UFO Sightings
47.00N 050.00W — A three man crew was flying a FEDEX MD-11 from Paris, France to Memphis, Tennessee on Saturday night about 0130Z, at FL340, heading 280 Magnetic on 28 April 2013. We noticed an object almost directly in front of us and about 45 degrees from the horizon that went from dim to bright, to dim again and then disappeared.
This only went across about two inches of sky as we looked at it, lasted about twenty seconds, was very bright and then was gone. It was very high and obviously in space. We really couldn’t decide on whether it was coming toward us, or going away. The moon was bright off our left side and behind, but visible from the left window. The sun was on the other side of the earth.
We assumed that we saw a meteor ricochet off the atmosphere and didn’t think anything of it. Both of us sitting in the cockpit saw it. Then, a short time later, we saw it again in the same area of sky, same duration, same brightness. We thought that it couldn’t be another meteor, so our next thought was that it was the space station and we were seeing it being reflected off the sun. But it happened fairly close to the last sighting and we thought that it couldn’t have gone around the earth in that amount of time. Then, we saw it again. This time I started my clock to time the event.
Then, we saw it again. It had only been 8 1/2 minutes. Our second pilot came into the cockpit and we briefed him on the sighting. We darkened the lights, and at about the 8 1/2 minute timeframe, we saw it again. We ended up watching this thing come and go every 8 1/2 minutes, (plus or minus a few seconds) for almost 2 hours. The final sightings were about 42.00N/070.00W and about 03:30Z, two hours later. Though we were traveling about 6 miles a minute westbound, and the earth was rotating, the object kept getting lower on the horizon until it wasn’t visible anymore. I did get a short video of it from my iPad, but it doesn’t show much, and the object wasn’t as bright as our earlier sighting. I have never seen anything like this in my 19,000 hours of flying and can only assume that it’s some sort of government object, but for it to be repeatedly seen for so long and so consistent, is a mystery. Thanks to William Puckett
DARLINGTON – This photo was taken by Rob Hartland over the Perth Hills on April 29, 2013. The Sunday Times newspaper in Perth has published this story with photos.
The huge email response from people in Perth, Australia-wide and overseas has been extremely positive and encouraging. Some people have sent me their personal stories of UFO sightings as well as some of their own images. I encourage everyone to have a go and see what you can capture in your own photos and let me know if you capture any really good ones. See here: Sunday Times article 28th April 2013
GAWLER – On April 30, 2013, at 19:27 hours I seen a bright orange light that at first I thought was the space station but it was too bright for that and then another two appeared. They were going north and went into a triangle formation, one of them had a light fall from it, that one then flew east and the other two went north. I’m not one to believe in little green men, but what I saw last night just changed my way of thinking. My friend on Face Book told me her uncle also saw the lights. Thanks to Stephen Holland
WESTERN AUSTRALIA — My family and I were on a several day trip from Melbourne, and one of our stops was in a small town just over the border of Western Australia in January of 2013. Later just after 9 PM, at the camp site, I was standing outside, a few meters away from our caravan where the rest of my family was asleep. Using my phone star map to look at the constellations while holding my phone above my head, I could track what was on the screen to what was in the sky. I saw two rows of blinking lights consisting of three blue, white and red lights running parallel moving east, until the lights morphed into only one row and flattened out. They spun and blinked in and out of view. It then did a hook turn and was coming straight for me.
It got bigger and was heading toward me and was so real that I screamed and started crying.
I ran back to our caravan and woke up my parents before a tree blocked my view and the object disappeared. It had been a solid shape because the outline had been clearly visible and the stars had been blocked. It was completely silent and many lights and was too large to be an airplane. I believe it had been a UFO. Thanks to MUFON CMS
SAULT STE MARIE — The night of May 6th, 2013, around 10:30 PM, I was in the back yard looking up at the clear night sky talking on the phone when I saw what appeared at first to be the V-shape of Canada Geese. There was no sound of their honking and the shape did not change. As it came closer I realized that it was a silent triangular shaped craft with dim lighting on the leading edge flying north. The altitude was hard to judge but it looked to be 3–4 thousand feet up. I mentioned the sighting to my girlfriend, whom I was talking to. The triangle disappeared behind a tree. Thanks to MUFON CMS
OSIJEK — I opened a window before I went to bed and seconds later I stared at the window at clear night sky and suddenly a bright orange light appeared 500 meters from my house on April 25, 2013. It followed a straight path glowing at a constant speed for two seconds. At first I thought it was a meteor but realized there is no burning glow or tail. Before I could make any sense of it — it disappeared — only to make itself visible once again. A moment later, it rapidly turned and continued going straight forward with an elevated path!
After two seconds it disappeared again. There was no noise the whole time. I never saw a UFO before, I studied astronomy and I know how celestial objects behave. I stared for about ten minutes searching for the object and decided to share this with the world. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Denmark Big Star
AALBORG – I have seen a lot of movements in the sky lately and the object moved with constant speed and then went slowly really, really bright on May 2013. This was the most memorable out of all the sightings I’ve experienced. That is why this is my very first report also. Previously I’ve just seen flying orbs and huge stationary flashes in the sky, like signaling that they are out there.
I was sitting in front of my apartment building and saw at first like normal star but it moved with constant speed and during its flight it started to get bigger and brighter. Its brightness can be compared to full moon in a clear night. It went slowly back to its previous size and disappeared.
Thanks to MUFON CMS
CHATUZANGE-LE-GOUBET – On March 29, 2013, I have a panoramic view from my home on top of a high hill and on a clear night and saw a glow in the sky. Without turning on the lights in my house I saw lights for more than 20 minutes. Returning to my room I saw a bright triangle in the sky without contours. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Germany Flying Rods
COLOGNE — This afternoon I originally wanted to photograph the moon and was looking for the best focus, as I suddenly discovered nearby a fast-flying object on March 27, 2013. I shot a few pictures successively and there were two different objects. One object flew from the top down, and a minute later, another object that flew from the bottom upwards.
I photographed these objects from my apartment where I live in Cologne. It happened in the east while taking pictures, I thought they were quite normal planes or jets, but then I saw something else in the photos. In the photos they look like flying double-or triple-rods, and do not look like the famous flying objects. In some of the photos you can see many small unidentified flying objects that accompanied the large UFO’s. When I saw the result in the photos, I was very excited and decided to report my sighting. Thanks to MUFON CMS
SHROPSHIRE — Multiple UFOs were caught on film briefly passing east over the north of Shrewsbury, UK on May 1st, 2013. They were caught on film with a Pulsar Recon 550 digital night vision monocular, but could not be seen with the naked eye. They are not sky lanterns as they did not glow or flicker or give of a bright enough light, but they could be birds. This is unlikely but cannot be ruled out.
You can see in the footage that a civilian airliner was also traversing the sky at the same time and at 1 minute 25 seconds there is a small shooting star entering the atmosphere. Weather was calm with no wind and no clouds. Aircraft and balloons have been ruled out here so they remain unidentified. Once again this shows just how useful night vision equipment is when viewing in low light and dark conditions. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Scotland Airliner Has Narrow Miss with UFO’
GLASGOW — The aircraft had been flying at 4,000 feet with its landing lights on, when a passenger aircraft had a narrow miss with an unidentified object over Glasgow.
The Airbus A320 was making its final approach to Glasgow Airport on December 2, 2013, when an object passed about 300 feet underneath it.
The pilot of the aircraft said the risk of collision with the object, which did not show up on radar, had been “high”. A report by the UK Airprox Board investigators was unable to establish what the object had been.
The Airprox report included a transcript of the conversation that took place between the aircraft and the controller at 12:55 PM:
- A320: “Glasgow Approach [A320 C/S]”
- EGPF: “[A320 C/S] pass your message”
- A320: “We just had something pass underneath us quite close [1255:30] and nothing on TCAS have you got anything on in our area”
- EGPF: “Er negative we’ve got nothing on radar and we’re not talking to any traffic either”
- A320: “Not quite sure what it was but it definitely quite large [1255:40] bigger than a balloon and it’s blue and yellow”
- EGPF: “OK that’s understood do you have a an estimate for the height”
- A320: “Maybe [1255:50] yeah we were probably about four hundred to five hundred feet above it so it’s probably about three and a half thousand feet.” The pilot asked the controller at Glasgow Airport if he was “talking to anything in the area” as he had “got quite close” to a blue and yellow aircraft, travelling in the opposite direction, which had passed just below him.
The controller stated that he was not talking to anyone else in that area and that nothing was seen on radar.
Air traffic control said they had no trace of any other objects in the area at the time of the incident, although the radar at Prestwick did spot an “unidentified track history” 1.3 nautical miles east of the A320’s position 28 seconds earlier.
1. Once the aircraft had landed, the pilot told the Glasgow Aerodrome Controller: “We seemed to only miss it by a couple of hundred feet, it went directly beneath us. Wherever we were when we called it in it was within about 10 seconds. Couldn’t tell what direction it was going but it went right underneath us.” BBC News — Airliner ‘had narrow miss with UFO’
Members were unable to reach a conclusion as to a likely candidate for the conflicting aircraft”
End Quote Airprox Board report.
The Airprox report concluded: “Investigation of the available surveillance sources was unable to trace any activity matching that described by the A320 pilot.
A glider could not be discounted, the report said, but it was unlikely that one would be operating in the area because of the constrained airspace and the lack of thermal activity because of the low temperature.
The report stated: “Members were unable to reach a conclusion as to a likely candidate for the conflicting aircraft and it was therefore felt that the board had insufficient information to determine a Cause or Risk”.

I could use your help. I have put together a DVD of the last fifteen years of Filer’s Files for you with hundreds of great photographs and UFO sightings. Additionally, I have decided to include my book within the DVD that includes George Ritter’s exciting abduction story told by Linda Moulton Howe. Broadcaster David E. Twichell joined me to write the book. We are asking for a donation of only $50 that includes next year’s subscription and our book. Please include your e-mail address and mailing address.
Have been digging through the giant CD you sent recently. As a relatively recent joiner, I was unaware of the years’ worth of consistent reports of the same types of objects all over. This has been very educational. Just wanted to thank you for all you’ve done.

Frankly, I need your help to put out these weekly wrap ups of the weeks most important sightings. I spend about 50 hours a week preparing the files. Only a few people who have enjoyed the files for years have chosen to provide a donation. I would greatly appreciate your contributions to help sustain my production, reporting and research efforts. I want to thank the few people who have sent $25.00 and more for donations to Filer’s Files for this year. When you send in a subscription, please include your latest E-mail address. Do not miss the latest images of UFOs from Earth and Mars. What are they doing to humans and animals?
