6-17-10 OKRACOKE NORTH CAROLINA
I was with my aunt on a 2 hour ferry ride to Okracoke Island, North Carolina and took some photos of our surroundings while out on open water.. I did not notice this “UFO” at the time, but when I went home and looked through the photos this caught my immediate attention. It is an oddly shaped, shiny metalic object high and far away in the sky.

DURHAM — I was driving on US Highway 15-501 to church on December 6, 2009, and saw a few Chemtrails that I wanted to photograph. I decided to pull off the highway at 10:21 AM near the Morreene Road overpass and took out my Sanyo cellular phone to take digital pictures. As my car was facing the south, and the direct path of the sun, I focused my lens on a chemtrail in the east and immediately noticed circular objects moving around on my LCD screen, particularly one surrounded by pink light. I snapped my camera shutter a few times as quickly as I could. After a minute I got back into my car I noticed an airplane leading off with another chemtrail. When I activated the camera function on my cellular phone again, and focused the lens I notice another round-shaped object, which was surrounded by pink light, and was moving across my LCD screen. I jumped out of my car and video recorded for 20 seconds. The image shows a UFO emitting some sort of energy charge to a chemtrail, which is displayed as a white horizontal line across the middle of the screen. Thanks to MUFON CMS
RALEIGH — This is a report of a sighting that happened on October 3 or 5, 1992, while flying a Boeing 727 for a major airline. We were approaching Raleigh RDU airport in North Carolina at 1:37 PM, from the northeast, when I observed what I thought was a flight of two F-16’s within thirty five miles of the airport, below 10,000 feet and going 250 KIAS.
The First Officer was flying the airplane, and I was looking out ahead of us and saw the sun glinting off them. Raleigh Approach controller didn’t call them as traffic, and the next thing I see is a chevron shaped vehicle within an eighth of a mile of us. It is now right outside of my window, just forward off the left wing, traveling the opposite direction at our altitude. The chevron shaped thing must have been in a turn earlier, and with the sun glinting off it was a very flashy flyer. It was standing on the tip of what you might consider to be its left wing; with the wing being parallel to the surface of the earth. It was perpendicular to us. I watched it for about five seconds before it passed behind our left wing.
I asked the Raleigh Approach controller, “What just passed us. I was specific when I asked him. I stated that it was just to our south, and at our altitude, flying from a generally southwest direction to the northeast”. The controller took a little longer than normal to reply. He said, “I don’t have anything on radar.” Then he waited a little bit longer, and asked if I had seen anything. I knew it was better, at the time, to keep my mouth shut, so my reply was along the lines of: no, I guess not. The controller didn’t press, and I didn’t offer anything else. This vehicle was unusual in a couple of ways. It flew on the tip of a wing, level (as it were) and didn’t seem to have any problem maintaining altitude. There was no, visible, means of propulsion. It didn’t leave any type of trail. It was fifty feet (plus or minus ten feet) from tip to tip, and from its nose to the trailing edge of its wing was no more than maybe twenty to twenty five feet. It was a dull grey, and no lights. There were no markings. After it passed behind the left wing, I asked to FO and FE if they had seen it. They had not.

WINSTON SALEM — I was taking random pictures of stunt planes during an air show in North Carolina on September 12, 2009. I then downloaded the digital pictures and noticed an orb directly above the stunt plane. I was unable to see the orb at the time of taking the picture. Frankly I’m not surprised. This isn’t the first picture I’ve taken with orbs in the photos. Thanks to MUFON CMS
East Coast Flap
Numerous reports were received along the coast of Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina on March 29, and particularly March 30, 2009. The flashing lights and booming sounds that were attributed to a piece of orbiting space junk were not the result of a man-made object, according to the United States Air Force. Stefan Bocchino of the USAF Joint Space Operations Center says the “bright light” seen over parts of the East Coast Sunday night was not a result of a man-made space object. The Joint Space Operations Center tracks more than 19,000 man-made objects in space, but no natural phenomena.
Witnesses described yellow and orange flashes in the sky with booms that prompted calls to 911 and the National Weather Service that stated, “Numerous reports have been called in to this office and into local law enforcement concerning what appeared to be flashes of light in the sky over the Suffolk/Virginia Beach area. We are confident in saying that this was not lightning. So far…we have not seen or heard of any damage and will continue to inquire as to the cause.” Thanks to John Schuessler
Editor’s Note: The most likely cause were bolides or meteors but often UFOs will choose to enter the atmosphere near these objects to camouflage their entry. Intelligence analyst, Sorcha Faal, reports that multitudes of people from Maryland to North Carolina witnessed a fleet of five UFOs being attacked by a squadron of over 75 US warplanes off the Virginia coast on Sun 29th March resulting in the loss of two US planes. I have no confirmation of this information that is being passed around the internet. The Air Force said these were not man-made objects, perhaps they were alien made? See examples of bolides at
