DISCLOSURE PROJECT IN TORONTO WAS HUGE SUCCESS. Dr. Stephen Greer’s Disclosure video tapes were 
presented to an audience of around 700 people at the prestigious University of Toronto 
Convocation Hall. Commander Graham Bethune, Dr. Greer and myself spoke to an appreciative 
audience. Several local television and radio programs covered the event. Allan Jaggard the 
well-known motorcycle-racing star was the master of ceremonies and is responsible for production 
of a great conference. The city of Toronto is a beautiful city with an excellent high-speed 
road system. I’m not surprised many UFOs are seen in the area with traffic moving at 80 + mph 
(140 klm). Some highways are 20 lanes wide. Allan Jaggard, Cindy Preville, and Mike and many 
others helped in putting on a great presentation. The University of Toronto staff were 
brilliantand I wish to thank everyone. 

The Disclosure Project reveals the best UFO evidence any where. All those giving information 
have worked for the government in responsible positions and have in depth knowledge of the 
subject. Each report reveals a piece of the UFO puzzle. Essentially, they report we are being 
visited by alien life forms that have bases on our Moon and Mars. Their UFOs are intelligently 
manned and carry out reconnaissance of our planet. They apparently forage for food, conduct 
mining operations, and make contact with some of us. 

Among the 300 to 400 UFO reports received in the US each month, there are many cases that may 
not be alien. Some reports are simply mistaken identity, such as secret military aircraft.  
However, the Disclosure Project assures us that many UFOs are real alien craft as the 
high-ranking FAA, military and intelligence witnesses testify. Witnesses who send in reports 
generally know the difference between an aircraft, balloon, or Venus. Most reports are from 
multiple witnesses who watch the UFOs for an extended period. Generally, it takes the witness 
at least a half hour to type and E-mail the report, so they are serious about what they saw.  
General Le May is quoted as claiming thirty per cent of Air Force sightings were real UFOs.  
Most of these reports in Filer’s Files have not been investigated, where possible they will be.  
After investigation it often turns out that a planet, balloons, flares or mundane aircraft are 
in the sky. The Air Force is conducting numerous training exercises and anti terrorist operations that can be confused with UFOs. 

However, we have strong indications that the UFO aircrews like this flight activity, because it 
provides excellent cover for their operations. We have many high quality witnesses who report 
the UFOs are operating at low level in close proximity to airports. When aircraft fly over they 
hide in the trees or simply disappear until the normal aircraft traffic passes over. There are 
generally 300 to 400 E-mail reports received each month. Many reports are probably mistaken 
identity, but does it make much difference if there are 400, 40, or 4 real alien craft? The 
fact is there are real UFOs in our skies. The real question is why are they here and what are 
they doing? The new "Disclosure Project" Book answers some of these questions and is well worth 
reading. The Web cast of the May 9, 2001; Disclosure Project News Conference at the National 
Press Club can be seeing on http://www.disclosureproject.org/npcwebcast.htm 


WILMINGTON -- The witness says, "I was out on my lawn viewing the near full moon, when a bright 
object caught my eye at 8:15 PM, on October 3, 2001. It had a bluish hue and I thought it was 
fireworks and expected to see little pieces break off, and it would disappear. The object was 
four times bigger than Mars or a very reddish star there that crosses the sky. The object faded 
away quickly, traveling northwest. It appeared to be very high in the sky when I lost sight of 
it. It seemed, maybe within 10,000 feet when I first saw it. The object made no noise. I am a 
veteran sky watcher and I have seen satellites travel through the night sky, reflecting the sun.  
They usually, I believe, have a yellowish hue, and are never close to being this vivid. It did 
travel in a straight line away from me as a satellite would. I live on the approach to Logan 
Airport. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC. 


Joe Trainor reports that Karen and her husband were sitting in their hot tub on October 20, 
2001, on a beautiful, clear, starry, cloudless night. Karen said, "We watched a plane go 
overhead and a few minutes later at 10:30 PM I noticed a distortion appear coming out of the 
west. You could tell there was an object there because the distortion made a circular shape.  
There was a ring of small lights on what I will call the front, the portion moving towards the 
east." I immediately said to my husband, "What is that?" As it passed over our heads he 
noticed the distortion as it headed away. I lost it trying to turn around. He did not see any 
ring of lights above the distortion the way I did. It moved quickly almost gliding through the 
sky. It was completely silent. If it hadn’t been for the distortion you would not have noticed 
it at all because it seemed to be camouflaged with the night sky. I hate to use this analogy 
but in the movie Predator you can tell the creatureis there by the distortion, but you can’t see any other type of identifying marks. That’s the 
best way I know how to describe it. We are still asking ourselves, what was that. There were 
small lights in a row on the "top" front only. The ’Distortion’ was just like the night sky.  
Our best guess is that it was 500 feet high and going roughly 500 miles per hour. It was faster 
than a plane and glided in total silence. Thanks to Joe Trainor FIFO [email protected] 


BROOKLYN -- Gil Rodriguez writes I was in the kitchen on October 24 or 25, 2000, at about 9:00 
p.m. when my 15 year old daughter came running downstairs yelling and crying that she saw 
something strange and large flying across the sky outside her window. I ran upstairs, looked to 
the west, and saw this well lit object moving across the sky. It looked like a huge disk 
(hamburger shaped) floating slowly across the sky without any sound. My daughter was very 
scared and still crying. She didn’t sleep that night and didn’t sleep much for about a week.  
The object had a flashing or strobe light on the top; below that there was a row of windows with 
yellowish light shining out all the way around to the left and right. Below the windows was a 
row of lights of different colors around the middle that went on and off in sequence very 
quickly (blue, green, yellow, white but not exactly in this order). The bottom half was sort of 
dark with no lighting. I was in complete awe of this  
huge object that was bigger than I had ever seen in the sky. It seemed almost as wide as two 
747 aircraft. I would guess it was at least 75 to 100 yards wide. I then remembered my loaded 
cameras, but when I returned to the back yard it had gone out of sight. This was the third 
sighting for my daughter and me. She had seen a similar huge hamburger shaped craft with her 
niece Latoya in late 1999. Thanks to [email protected] 


STANTON -- Becky reports that on October 15, 2001, a lighted object appeared to be standing 
still in the northeastern sky as she drove on the country roads a mile out of town at 12:30 AM.  
Becky noticed a few planes in the sky, but this was much larger and much lower than a star. The 
light was not a brilliant light but it appeared to be bright, however, it had a misty haze to 
it. It just stood still; it did not blink like a plane. It was about the size of a dime, or at 
least five times the size of either a plane or star. When I had looked up again at the object 
all of the sudden flashes of what looked like red laser beam lines appeared. Red laser beams 
did not shoot across the sky, but they were contained within an area surrounding this object.  
The only way I can describe it is to say a circle within a circle. The hazed light was the 
center of this circular area. Several red laser lines - extended out away from this object in 
all directions and abruptly came to a halt. 

All the red lines halted, and gave the appearance of a jagged circular pattern surrounding a 
white hazed object. These red lines were all straight lines, some of which crossed over each 
other, creating some triangles within this area. The size of this circular area in comparison 
to the object would be like putting a dime in the center of a silver dollar. I was frightened 
and turned around and immediately headed back to town. Once in town I gathered my senses. I 
stopped and watched this object for at least another five minutes before I went home. The 
object slowly ascended vertically and the light became less hazy and clearer. I watched the 
object for a while, because if any more red lines were to appear I was definitely not going to 
go any further. Once home I looked in the mirror and noticed that I had a red circular patch on 
my throat. Thanks to Becky and Jim Hickman [email protected] 


FLORENCE, SPREAD EAGLE COUNTY -- Jenny Hoppe UFOWisconsin reports that on October 20, 2001,Kris 
N was outdoors looking east towards Gemini at 11:00 PM. Kris says, "I noticed a small "star" 
rising over the trees across the lake. It kept rising and falling below the tree line. It rose 
higher and moved to my right. After a while, it was joined by another object. These both moved 
closer to my location. They were both moving left to right and would sometimes disappear. They 
kept getting closer, and higher. After 20 minutes, they were quite close to my location and a 
third "star like" object appeared about 1000 feet in front of me at about 40 degrees. This last 
object was pulsating like a "dimmer" switch. It also grew larger and smaller. The three 
objects hovered in a triangle formation. I left the scene, as I was a little "spooked" by all 
this. I didn’t sleep well and have had some very "funny" dreams." Thanks to~ Jenny Hoppe ICQ

KENNETT -- The witness reports, "We didn’t see it close up, but it had three lights on it on 
October 7, 2001. One was at the top and two were on the bottom. The right bottom light and the 
top light disappeared first, and finally the left bottom one at 1:30 AM. We were outside 
talking when one of my friends said, "Ooh look, and pointed." One of my friends thought that it 
was a missile and ran away, my other friend started to run. He saw I couldn’t move and came 
back. We both watched it for a while and then the object disappeared. Loud music was blasting 
so we didn’t hear it. We were only able to discern its lights. It was low, seemed to hover in 
one spot for a while, and then went away. I believe it was something strange. Thanks to Peter 
Davenport NUFORC www.ufocenter.com 


OTTUMWA -- The witnesses reported seeing a square shaped object on October 10, 2001, at 9:15 PM 
that had two blue corners to the left as you look at it and two red lights on the two corners on 
the right. There was a white or yellow light in the center. The sky was pitch black so you 
only saw the lights on the formation of the square. I slowed the car down to a stop, but it was 
too far away to see details, just the shape, and the lights. It didn’t appear to be moving and 
we couldn’t take our eyes off of it. When my passenger rolled the window down to see even 
better, it took off heading west for a split second and was completely gone from the sky. It 
wasn’t a helicopter; there wasn’t any noise. It was square and planes don’t hover in one spot 
above the trees. The witnesses contacted the local law enforcement offices about the sighting.  
The case has been forwarded to Beverly Trout, MUFON SD of IA, for investigation. Thanks to 
Peter Davenport NUFORC 


Billie Brinkley reports I had a weird sighting October 21, 2001, about 11:30 PM when I went 
outside to smoke and look at the expected meteor shower. Instead I saw a transparent blob like 
’Distortion’. It looked like the "Predator" did in the movie. You could see the stars through 
it, but it definitely had edges. It lasted for just a few seconds and then just disappeared.  
It looked fairly close and pretty low in the sky. I’ve seen these things before, but not 
usually so close. My son works late hours and came in late. This morning he got up and told me 
that he also saw something weird about 3:30 AM, when he went out to smoke. He said, "It was 
like a big ball of light that dimmed out and became transparent, but looked like the 
"Predator"...his words. He said he watched it for several minutes and then it disappeared. I 
had not told him about my earlier sighting until this morning. There was weird stuff going on 
in the skies of Louisiana last night. Thanks to Louise A. Lowry SHnSASSY1 and Billie [email protected] ([email protected] Editor’s Note: A 
Connecticut couple had a similar sighting on October 20, 2001. 


ARLINGTON -- Mike Harman reports a UFO flew right over a densely populated area of Arlington on 
October 25, 2001. I stepped outside with my brother-in-law at 8:05 PM to take out the trash 
after a group dinner at my mother-in-laws apartment. We noticed this gray round wingless object 
moving rapidly and steadily across the sky. The object had no standard aircraft lighting, no 
strobing, or other lights visible on the object. It moved straight across the sky on a 
southwest heading. My brother-in-law was with me at the time and we both observed the silent 
gray spherical object from directly above and slightly south of our position until it went out 
of sight in about 20 seconds. It crossed Pioneer Parkway heading across I-20. It looked about 
ten feet across, 1000 feet up and round in shape. I seriously doubt that it was a balloon 
because of the high steady speed, and the fact that there was no wind at the time. No wings 
were visible on this object and it made no sound as it moved across the sky in 15 to 20 seconds at an estimated 80 to 100 MPH. There was only 
reflected light from streetlights below. Thanks to [email protected]


ELK CITY -- Jim Hickman says the witness states, "It was around 3:30 PM on Saturday October 13, 
2001, and I was northbound on US Highway 6 when I saw a strange thing in the sky. There were 
contrails in the sky from the local jets that fly around. However, I noticed that "angel hair" 
was falling instead of disappearing or staying in a consistent path with the jet. About 10 
minutes later I was heading southbound back toward the object, but the object was no longer 
visible. I went ahead and went down the road about 10 to 12 miles to see if I could locate the 
object. At that time the object was no longer visible. I had noticed that there were about 6 
or so other jets in the sky, but the contrails that they were making were staying in the sky 
like bunch of X’s. Thanks to the Hickman Report [email protected] 


DENVER -- At about 5:15 AM, I awoke suddenly and was immediately compelled to look outside in 
the southeastern sky on October 11, 2001. The sky was clear and many stars were evident. I 
first saw what appeared to be a military aircraft flying from south to north - a white light 
with a red light and a blue light on it, and was flying rather fast. Not an odd occurrence 
given that there are several military bases in the Front Range area here in Colorado. However, 
I knew it was not a military craft when it stopped in midair and the red and blue lights 
disappeared. The single white light, which was now a little brighter (like a very bright star), 
started to bob up and down and around in the air, almost like a flying insect or a moth. I knew 
that since I was seeing this against the fixed backdrop of the stars that this one object was 
indeed moving, and it wasn’t just my eyes. It became stationary, and while I was watching for 
additional movements, I fell asleep. The total time I watched this event was about 15 minutes. I heard the rumble of military jets crossing the 
airspace during this time but did not see them. Thanks to NUFORC www.ufocenter.com 


CRANBROOK, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- Brian Vike reports that on October 2, 2001, about 9:30 PM, a 
52-year-old journalist looked out his bedroom window and flying above Fort Steele about ten 
kilometers north was an object that grabbed his attention. "The hovering object was glowing 
red, green and then slowly moved away before vanishing. The witness says, "I regularly see 
Bighorn Helicopters coming in to land at night and this was not a chopper. I’ve never seen 
anything like it in the clear night sky." The object was also sighted by a native elder and the 
story of his sighting was reported as a UFO story in the Friday edition of the Cranbrook Daily 
Townsman that week. Thanks to Brian Vike, Geoff (Yogi) Independent UFO Field

MISSION, BC -- On October 12, 2001. In the morning I opened my blinds and there was a bright 
blue light in a car parked outside my house. It was pointed at my house. I thought maybe it 
was a light from something recharging in the car, but it seemed to move in the car as the day 
went on eventually it went away although no one went to the car to turn any thing off. Last 
night the same blue light was in my neighbors (directly across the street from me) bush for 
about twenty minutes. Then I looked out the window and it was on the basketball hoop for about 
half an hour. I am a sane person I have never seen anything before. 

ABBOTSFORD BC -- On October 27, 2001, about 7:30 PM, we were walking the dogs in a nearby park 
when both of us saw something go across the sky in a northerly heading. This made the 
trajectory northwest of Mission B.C. It was white to orange in color and had three distinct hot 
spots. The tail could be seen for at least 5 to 8 seconds and then after the tail went out I 
could still see the object for a second or two. I have seen a lot of meteors but this one was 
definitely the brightest and the longest duration, I have ever seen. We were facing west at the 
time of entry. Perhaps the thing landed around Pemberton, or somewhere up there. Thanks to 
Brian Vike (Yogi) UFO Field Investigator, HBCC UFO Research and Thanks to Louise A. Lowry 


WARWICKSHIRE -- Kevin Yates reports that on October 29, 2001, "My wife and I had pulled off our 
drive in Bishops Itchington at 6:45 PM, when we both looked up and saw a diamond formation of 
four bright yellow lights in the shape of a diamond with a red one on the top to the left. It 
moved very slowly emitting no noise, we followed it for about 10 miles to Leamington Spa. Other 
people along the way appeared to have seen it as well as cars had stopped by the side of the 
road. In the time we witnessed it, for 25 minutes it changed shape to two bright yellow lights.  
They also changed shape from being vertical to horizontal. When we got off the main road in 
Leamington Spa by the police building, I noticed another collection of the same diamond shaped 
lights coming from Leamington and heading towards Stratford Upon Avon. It was truly a memorable 
day. Thanks to Joe Trainor [email protected] [email protected] (Kevin Yates) 


ZALKA -- The witness has been an artist, US Marine, Forest Supervisor, and a spokesman for 
conservation exchange and fuel-less technology efforts. He writes, "I saw a red circle 
appearing suddenly in the sky on October 8, 2001. It looked like two circles inside each other 
at 11:55 PM. The inner one has nothing inside it but between it and the outer circle there are 
linking lines (linking the 2 circles) appearing as the edges of a diamond. As I saw it from the 
first place it looked like a star far away yet somehow describable. It moved very fast in a 
straight line direction southwest then stopped quickly to do a semi circle then irregular 
movement south north then disappeared behind a next by building. We went to the roof and 
nothing happened for a couple of minutes. Then it appeared again moving quickly, then stopping 
suddenly and doing circular movements. It lasted for a couple of minutes then become dimmer and 


BUDAPEST -- Jeff Rense has received a spectacular video of a silver disk shaped object. On 
September 29, 2001, the pilot reports that a strange craft was flying to his left side and then 
moved very fast past him in the clouds as can be seen in the video. To my left I saw a bright 
metal aircraft that was the shape of a perfect disk. I was careful to film the object, not to 
try and chase it since it I could not match its speed. As I was flying a reconnaissance 
aircraft, I got the idea to film it and used our equipment." The pilot considers the video he 
made to be his property and not the Hungarian governments as he was flying the plane while not 
on duty and was transporting it as a favor to save the government money. He has now hired an 
attorney and wants the video to be released to the public. He hopes the release of a few frames 
will make this happen. These spectacular photos can be seen at 
http://www.rense.com/general15/pilotufo.htm. Thanks to Jeff Rense. Editor’s Notes: This appears to be a verified disc shaped UFO of 25 to 30 feet in diameter. These have 
been filmed by numerous Air Forces of the world and have speeds greater than most jet fighter 


BUNDABERG, QLD -- Steve Evans was in his backyard in the outer suburb of Avoca on October 21, 
2001, when his partner and he observed a string of five bright orange lights traveling north at 
treeline height for 5 to 10 minutes. A singular bright orange light was observed first before 
other’s appeared behind it at close intervals at 9:20 PM. A line of five bright orange lights 
were visible over about half the southern sky. They moved slowly north in a uniform line until 
the third object dropped in altitude, but not in speed. They passed just below the Moon 
(quarter) except for the fourth object, which went through the Moon’s light. They continued 
moving north slowly and became less bright before disappearing. The objects were much brighter 
and larger than the closest star and traveled without any audible sound. The night was clear 
and fine. The objects displayed no characteristic similarities to any aircraft. Each light, 
being the whole entity, and remained a constant bright orange light with no flashing observed. They were traveling in a rising angle. The Moon 
and stars were clearly seen. A vague oval shape was observed from a side view when the fourth 
object passed through the light of the Moon. Before this, all five objects appeared round in 
shape. After sighting the objects, we accessed some information on the Internet where we found 
information and photographs of orange orbs and orange ball phenomenon closely matching what we 
had observed. Thanks to Steve Evans [email protected] and Joe Trainor

COSMIC CONSPIRACIES has uncovered evidence that proves that the US Military are using smart 
metals similar to those found at the Roswell Crash In 1947 "Time is ripe for the insertion of 
smart structures and materials into space systems." Dr. Keith Denoger Air Force Research 
Laboratories "Imagine seeing a bullet shot through a sheet of material, only to have the 
material instantly "heal" behind the bullet! Remember, this is not science fiction. Self-healing 
materials actually exist, and LaRC scientists are working to unravel their secrets. What we did 
at NASA-Langley was basically dissect that material to answer the question, ’how does it do 
that?’" McGowan said. "By doing so, we can actually get down to computational modeling of these 
materials at the molecular level. Once we understand the material’s behavior at that level, 
then we can create designer ’smart’ materials," Anna McGowan, program manager for the Morphing 
Project at NASA’s Langley Research Center. Does the ! 
above quote sound familiar? Metal that is cut, only to ’heal’ itself? We have all become 
accustomed to hearing about technological advances that were initially spearheaded by secret 
military research projects. 

The Atom Bomb was developed during the Second World War amid incredibly tight security, and the 
first most people knew about Stealth technology was when the bat-like fighter-bombers were being 
rolled out of the hangers to attack the military apparatus of Iraq. Many of us are expecting a 
new dawn of technological wizardry to make its debut appearance during the current ‘war on 
terrorism’. Cosmic Conspiracies would like to share with you some remarkable information 
relating to current cutting-edge technological research being conducted on behalf of the U.S. 
military that we believe could be connected to the materials found from the Roswell crash. We 
are stunned by it, not least because of how freely available much of the data is on the 
Internet. Finding this freely available material, however, is extremely difficult unless you 
are aware of the specific keywords being utilized, or, as in our case, you have a researcher of 
the caliber of Martin Cosnette. This is not common ! 
knowledge, despite the amazing jump in technology implied by the rapid advances being made right 
now. Thanks to Cosmic Conspiracies at http://www.ufos-aliens.co.uk/morphingmetals.html
