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.

Tuesday, 11 May 2010 – MYSTERY continues to surround a strange object photographed in the sky above Scarborough, UK.
Evening News photographer Andrew Higgins was left puzzled after spotting the “unidentified flying object” above Betton Farm, in East Ayton.
As reported in the Evening News last week, Andrew was photographing Basics Plus director Avis Turner at Betton Farm, shooting four frames a second.
The mystery object appears in just one frame and appears in no other photo, or in any other taken at the same time around Betton Farm. No aircraft were seen or heard.
The small black spots on the photo are dust on the camera sensor.Evening News reader Russ Kellett has come forward after seeing the image and said he believed the object could well be a UFO. Mr Kellett, who is vice-chairman of the British Flying Saucer Bureau, said: “When I first saw the picture I thought it was a fighter jet banking to the right, but the problem is that the object looks to have three parts to it.
“There seems to be a main fuselage and then two spheres either side of that and the sphere on the bottom seems to be blocking out the electricity cable. “It can’t be a trick of the light because it is covering the overhead cable and the object appears to be almost the length of the car that is also in the photo.” Mr Kellett added Filey will host its first UFO conference next month to coincide with the start of the Filey Town Festival.

MERIVALE, OTTAWA, ONTARIO — On November 2, 2009, about 6:30 PM, two witnesses saw an orange illuminated oval-shaped object gliding silently through the openings between buildings only 600 meters from their balcony. Its bottom was lighting up irregularly as big as the full moon. I called my roommate out to see it and we climbed down the stairs to have a better look. It had changed direction, and was slowly moving up away in a swerving motion, becoming dimmer, but changing in luminescent intensity, looking brighter, then dimmer until it disappeared completely. Thanks to UFOINFO.
NIAGARA FALLS – On November 14, 2009, I saw a UFO in the same spot as before to the north but this time I was prepared with my camera. This object was not a light aberration and was very large thousands of feet up and always seemed HAZY or partially cloaked. It flew up really high after ninety minutes, then came back down and disappeared. Later it appeared for fifteen minutes and then disappeared. Thanks to MUFON CMS
WINDSOR — I went out on my back porch to investigate the sound of animals fighting on November 10, 2009, and saw four luminescent boomerang craft overhead. These were lit up flying wings with no fuselage flying at a couple hundred feet altitude. I watched them fly from horizon to the southwest horizon in about six seconds moving at the speed of the space shuttle. (14,000 MPH) They were silent with three in a tight formation, and the fourth was flying slightly behind. I am a 58 year old Police Officer and have never seen anything like those craft. I was completely sober and wide awake during this sighting.
MONTREAL, QUEBEC – On November 4, 2009, at 10:30 PM, four lights revolving in a counter clockwise circle like a Ferris wheel and then converging in the centre and intersecting and then arching out and resuming the circular rotation.
