News and observation reports, July 2004:

Some of the UFO observations and ufology news in July 2004 are listed on this page. Please note that these are not studies, but second hand observation reports, although mostly obtained from reliable and well known sources.


On Saturday, July 31, 2004, at 10 p.m., eyewitness L.D., "my two sisters, my cousin's boyfriend and my cousin" saw UFOs approaching from the east near Perris, California (population 36,189), about 30 miles (48 kilometers) south of San Bernardino.

"We were admiring the stars out in a field near Perris when we saw a bright star," L.D. reported, "Then it dimmed and brightened in an odd way. The object wasn't moving while it was doing this. The object appeared to be a star at first. Then we were arguing about what it was when my cousin pointed out that it had a shape around it, and it was moving like a blob with very dim lights on it."

"My sister's boyfriend said, 'It's a blimp.' A few seconds later, the object separated. The dim lights on the blob all left at a fast speed, looking like a mini- meteor shower, but all separating from that first object. After that, you could see the new objects flashing in no (particular) pattern. The new objects all went out of view in a few minutes."

The first UFO "probably entered Earth's atmosphere," L.D. added, "It moved at an alarmingly fast rate away from the first 'star,' then disappeared." (Email Form Report)

The witness emails me on August 1st, 2004:

I am visiting your website today because yesterday evening (July 31) we saw something strange in the sky of the Paris suburb. This happened at Rueil-malmaison, we were 4 in the garden when a friend exclaimed "look behind the plane!?!" we have indeed managed to observe 3 luminous points orange/red rather dull, like a light through the clouds or a lunimous beam projected on the lower part of the clouds, only that evening it was beautiful and there was not one cloud in the sky. the three points seemed to follow a plane then "dropped out" pretence to take altitude to finally disappear. the trajectory was roughly speaking from the Big Dipper to the level of the star which seemed to us to be the evening star but we are not sure of the latter. Do you have other testimonys of this case?

Note: as of August 1st I have received no other corresponding reports.


Two friends were driving in the mountains in upstate New York on July 22, 2004, around 2 AM. They pulled the car off the highway in a heavily wooded area to take a break. They got out of their car, but we left the head lights on because it was very dark. They heard a strange humming sound, which was not a typical humming sound. As the humming got louder, the cars head lights started dimming and went off. They started freaking out at this point. They jumped back in the car an attempted to start it. The car wouldn't start; they wanted to get the hell out of there as fast as they could. They were some what frantic. After about ten minutes the car's light suddenly went back on and they were able to start the car. The observer states, "That's when we noticed this lemon shaped light in the sky that just sort of drifted for a minute and the strange noise stopped, and I have no idea what it was, but I'm never going up state again!"

TITUSVILLE – The witness was at his niece's birthday party on July 18, 2004, when he noticed a silver ball just above the tree line about 200 yards away. It was polished looking silver like a mirror and it started moving slowly left at 1 PM. The ball shifted from silver to a reddish color in a perfectly timed sequence. It flew back to the right, stopped, and drifted downward behind the trees. He states, "Everyone around me passed it off as a Mylar balloon, but I had a different feeling about it. Fifteen minutes later I noticed it again in the same place above the tree line moving slowly left with the red and silver shifts, and back to the right again. This time instead of going behind the trees it moved up at the same slow speed until it was too small to find with my eye against the bright blue sky. It was very strange."

Note: I cannot begin to understand whay this should not indeed be a mylar balloon with a red and a silver face, launched at the party, and drifting with the winds.

Laurance Rockefeller, the conservationist philanthropist and supported of UFO research, died in his sleep of natural death on Sunday morning at the age of 94.

In the last decade, Rockefeller gave financial support to various UFO researchers and organization such as Dr. John Mack and Dr. Steven Greer. It is said that he also urged President Clinton to acknowledge the reality of UFOs.

He has financed the creation of a 169 page document headlined "the best available evidence on UFOs" intended to be read by a very select audience of heads of state and other key world figures, "who may be almost entirely ignorant of the evidence but who could, if sufficiently moved, very quickly undo the atmosphere of secrecy that has surrounded this subject for decades," commented UFO researcher Michael Lindemann.


LEWISBURG – On July 17, 2004, three friends were traveling west on I-70 not far from Dayton at 3 AM, when they spotted an illuminated triangular shaped object about a mile high. The whole ship was lit up in a light blue/white glow like a plane in town for Wright Patterson Air Force Base Air Show. They drove towards the light, and as they got closer they could see the craft was not a perfect triangle. The witness states, "The nose was narrower, then it contoured out in a definite triangular shape with two lights on the outer "wings" that blinked in sync about one per second." The front of the craft put off a decently bright glow, but was not a beam of light. The craft was bigger then the Stealth Bomber, but not by too much. It was very flat in appearance and was only 10 to 15 feet thick. I've seen the stealth up close, and I can definitely say it was not one because it was not jagged in the rear. The flying triangle was 500 feet in altitude and hovering. We could now also see the front underneath part that was a narrow and long opening, rectangular, and lit up. Not brightly, but enough to tell that you were looking into the craft that looked like red pipes or bars of some sort that were red in color. It put off a red hue with the white light around it."

Baku Today reports on July 12, 2004 that witnesses said a UFO "resembling a huge star hanged over" Baku early in the morning.

Few details are given: the object appeared at about 06:15 P.M., could be easily seen particularly in Baku's outlying Akhmadli and Bakikhanov settlements, and "stayed there" until sunrise. Witnesses said the UFO was so bright that "one could hardly observe it via bare eyes."

Every once in a while a similar UFO is reportedly seen above Baku. Once I received a video shot by a witness in Baku, which I found out was showing Venus (see here).

The witness reports on July 8, 2004, that on July 7, 2004, "I was on a pier, on the cheasepeake bay. it was just before midnight. no clouds in the sky, I was admiring the stars when I saw an object in the sky, a rectange shaped object with no light or sound it was only visable because of its brownish color and so many stars in the back ground. It started as one object coming up the horizion from the east it split into two identacle objects an flew side by side with the distance of one craft between them into the west. From the eastern horizion to the western horizion it took 7 to 8 seconds. These object apeared to be a good distance up, if I were to guess the size of the craft I would think at least 10 miles long."

"It hapened over a large body of water, no clouds in the sky and I had to turn 180 degrees to watch it fly into the western horizion. I would like to know if any one else saw this."

The sighting lasted 7 seconds and was at Scotland, Maryland.

The witness reported on the next day that on July 3, at 11:00 P.M., he observed a very bright light on the north west horizon, then, "I have a boat on Hudson river. light was 10 times brighter than jupitor. I asked my wife what that could be. picked my binoculars up to look at it. It seemed to be stationary for a couple of minutes. It started to move toward our location at avery high rate of speed. A jet liner travels through the sky at 600mph. this object moved at least 10 times that speed. It coverd the whole visble sky, north to south in about 10 seconds. As it went over head I was looking at it with binoculars. I could see the bottom of it. It was a perfect triangle, with a dim row of lights under each edge. It was very high up. Judging by the size of it at that distance, It must have been very large."

The entire sighting lasted 2 minutes.

The archaeological digging at a field near Roswell, New Mexico, which was the supposed crash site for the famous 1947 incident has resulted in no findings of anything out of the ordinary, nor balloon neither saucer.

The team was lead by a UNM professional archaelogist helped by volunteers, and sponsored by the SciFi Channel and the University of New Mexico. The book "The Roswell Dig Diaries" co-authored by Roswell incident investigator Donald R. Schmidt, which documents the unsuccesful effort has just been published by Pocket Books.
