12-26-10 ANDREWS AIR FORCE BASE MARYLAND
I was driving home from work on the Sunday morning after Christmas 12/26/2010 at 2:25 am and it was snowing lightly.
I was traveling on Matta-Woman Beantown Road going from 301 south to Rt. 5. I was approximately half way down the road, where the park and ride is located, when I saw a huge aircraft about 200 ft in length emerge out of the clouds about 100 ft over the tree line.
The first thing I noticed when I saw the craft was that it had an unusual amount of lights on the front of it to be an airplane. Being that I am in the aerospace industry I see large aircraft on a daily basis, and none of them have that many lights.
Nevertheless, I was just thinking it was a large plane flying low. I continued driving slowly and watching it and shortly after it came out of the clouds, it banked a hard right maybe 60 degrees or more, and at this point I could see the entire shape of the craft.
It had lights covering the entire perimeter of the craft and what seemed like what would be the cockpit/fuselage. It had lights surrounding that part too.
In the center of the craft where the fuselage would be, there was a red blinking light on top of the craft and one on the bottom. This is what is called an anti-collision light required by all aircraft flying in US airspace.
I got excited at this point because I thought it was a B-2 bomber and I have never seen one before in person. So I was not sure of the light pattern. It had the exact same shape a B-2 except the tail of the craft cut straight across from wing tip to wing tip.
The B-2 has several triangle shapes on the tail of the aircraft. Once the craft came out of its 60 degree bank and leveled off, it just sat in one spot and did not move.
At this point I pulled over because I was amazed that it stopped and hovered. I did not think this was a UFO, but was just some sort of aircraft that didn’t exist. So I pulled over and got out of the car expecting to hear a very loud engine running because the craft was hovering and it takes a lot of power to hover an aircraft. I got out and I heard nothing but silence.
That’s when my heart started to beat really fast because I had an idea of what I was seeing. I went to grab my phone to take a picture and the lights just went out. I could still see the craft in the sky being that it was no more than 75 ft from me and it was snowing, so it was easy to see.
The craft was dark, almost black, and I could still easily see it hovering. I watched it for about 5 minutes with its lights off just sitting there hovering.
After the 5 minutes, it just started to slowly move out of sight and that was the last I saw of it. I did not hear any jet aircraft in the area which I thought was weird because I was just outside of Andrews Air Force base and you can’t get near that place without setting off some sort of alarm.
I know of 3 aircraft that can hover and two of those are stationed in the area I work and live, those being the Osprey and Joint Strike Fighter. Both of these make a lot of noise. This craft made absolutely no noise and just sat there and hovered.
I haven’t the slightest idea of what I saw that night. I’m not sure it was man made or not of this earth. I’m leaning towards man made because of the anti-collision lights located on it.
But I know of no aircraft that is 200 ft. in length and can hover without making any noise. I will truly never forget this experience.

Hundreds of scientists and engineers conduct thorough studies of the unidentified phenomenon. According to Chinese ufologists, aliens live among humans. Ugologists also claim that recently aliens started to show more interest in China. Most recent UFO was spotted in Nanking, China. According to a Chinese pilot, he noticed a flickering white and blue object, which hovered right beside the aircraft just as he was about to land. The pilot observed how an oval-shaped flying object was escorting the airplane. Then suddenly, the object made a rapid turn and disappeared behind the clouds.
This story could sound rather nonsensical. However, other two pilots from other Chinese aircrafts reported the exact same phenomenon to the control center. One of them was piloting at 120 km to the North, while the other was flying at 300km to the South, reports “Izvestia”. A considerable amount of such strange encounters with “feidi” (this is how a UFO is referred to in China) has been recorded in China for the past few years. In some cases, people saw fluorescent orange light, above which hovered a rather strangely-shaped object. In other instances, people witnessed an object no bigger than a basket ball which had been divided in half right before their eyes. The two balls started circling the area and then disappeared completely. One time, people witnessed an object similar to a whipping top. Its trail was marked by a stripe of light. The object was also held responsible for shutting off electricity in several houses, since no malfunction had been reported at the electric power station.
One Chinese newspaper “South China Monitoring Post” reported the most fascinating case. One hundred Chinese witnessed a double-seated fighter-interceptor of the Chinese Air Force “playing cat-and-mouse” with a hypothetical UFO not far away from a military base in the town of Chinjou. A mushroom-shaped object with rotating brightly lit bottom was spotted by four radar stations. When approaching the interceptor (in about 4,000 meters), the object instantly moved upwards. None of the ground-based control services ordered to open fire.
“Izvestia” reports that China has a record number of special clubs of UFO lovers. There are many who attempt to establish some sort of a connection with the extraterrestrial. Their actions are protected by the National Society of the extraterrestrial studies, which was founded 25 years ago. The Society is financed by the government. Only professional scientists and engineers are allowed in the Society. A person also required to have PhD in science and have several published works about UFOs. About a third of all members of the society are also experienced members of the communist party.
One of Chinese most famous experts in ufology, 66-year-old Sun Shili, who is also a former diplomat and a translator of Mao Zedong, has told us about his first encounter with an unidentified object. It happened in 1971 during the “cultural revolution” when Sun Shili had been undergoing physical labor at a correctional facility high up in the mountains of the Tsyansi province. One day, while working in the rice fields, he spotted a strange object in the sky. He momentarily thought it was a real UFO.
Experts from the National Society claim that half of Chinese residents believe in such phenomenon. Sun Shili explains such interest in UFOs in China (every fifth UFO appears in this country) in the following way. He says that China appeals to aliens the most, due to the country’s recent breakthroughs and its aspiration to become the world’s leader.
Aliens used to be interested in the US up until recently. According to Sun Shili (and his opinion is shared by many in the National Society) some of the aliens live among us, by turning into humans.

6-6-10 BILINGA AUSTRALIA
We were lying on the beach on a sunny Sunday afternoon, blue sky, few clouds.
We were watching a jet airliner which had recently taken off from Gold Coast Airport on a northerly heading (possibly 3000 feet altitude).
We suddenly noticed something following behind the aircraft on the starboard side, at about a 45 degree angle from the aircraft, about 200 meters away (large passenger aircraft never follow this closely), and traveling at the same rate of speed.
We could not identify the aircraft following because it didn’t have any wings, a tail plane, or flashing lights.
It was oval/cigar shaped, and it was shiny like a mirror.
The jet airliner flew into a small cloud and then reappeared out of the otherside continuing on its path.
The unidentified aircraft flew into the small cloud and disappeared – did not appear out of the other side of the cloud.
This event happened over a period of about 30 seconds and we couldn’t understand what we were seeing. Unfortunately we didn’t have a camera available to take photos.
I am a commercial helicopter pilot and quite familiar with aircraft laws, rules and protocol. The following craft we could not identify as any type of conventional aircraft.

7-14-10 RIO DE JANEIRO BRAZIL
Taken from plane over Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
One of our readers, Mr. Henrique Costa, has forwarded two images of interest.
Henrique did not take the photographs, but a colleague of his forwarded them to him.
The man who took the photographs, three in total, was a passenger on a plane. He was taking a vacation trip, and flying near Brazil’s capital city of Rio de Janeiro.
Not a great deal of information was sent. This is what we know at this time.
Several passengers saw the object in question, which was first described as a ball of light, shaped similar to a football. Several passengers shouted in fear as they felt the plane was too close to the unknown object, and there was a possibility of a collision.
According to passenger statements, the unknown, flying object maneuvered into the clouds, but continued to follow the aircraft for about two minutes.
According to the camera information, the photographs were taken at 3:40 PM, July 14, 2010. The camera used was a Nokia, 3120 Classic.
Information and photographs submitted by Henrique Costa.
