News and observation reports, February 2005:

Some of the UFO observations and ufology news in February 2005 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.


KMSB TV in Tucson, Arizona, USA has said that Mr Woolvine, a Phoenix Valley resident, has hours and hours of video footage of mysterious object he has been taping in the Phoenix area, many of them in broad daylight.

Judy Varns, MUFON state director, has examined the footage and said that much of Mr. Woolvine's footage remains in the unidentified category, although one probably shows a party balloon gotten away from an appartment building. MUFON studies the footage and the sightings for now.


SIERRA BERMEJA - Professor Reinaldo Rios reports that on February 18, 2005, at about the 6:30 p.m he was on Highway 303 between Lajas and Cabo Rojo when he noticed the presence of a luminous object suddenly moving west. The object moved quickly and was about 7 to 8 meters of a shining clear color that sounded like a washing machine. The sighting was at dusk. He could clearly see it was a well-known object [?]. He shot some photographs.

OSHAWA, ONTARIO - Agnes Sroczynski reports "Between 3 and 5 AM, a large vertical row of three lights was observed on February 13, 2005, flying quickly over, and then hovered for a few minutes before going into the clouds." The object had a large vertical row of three lights. The bottom light was brightest and whitest, very large and flashing rapidly and somewhat erratically."

"Middle light was closer to bottom light, about a fourth it's size, dimmer, and not flashing. Top light was a third the size of the bottom light, dimmer still, dark red, and flashing slowly and steadily. There was no sound."

"The object glided across the sky quickly in one direction, changed directions a few times, then hovered for a few minutes before going into the clouds. In the clouds, which were misty, wispy and transparent, it had a disc-shaped halo, lighting up the mist enough to see the droplets in the air, and was much larger than any commercial aircraft. It disappeared for a few minutes, flashed the red light again once, and was gone."

"About an hour later it reappeared much lower in the sky, drifting downwards, and disappearing over Lake Ontario. My friend and I were driving West on Regional Rd 22. The lights also moved from being lined up vertically to horizontally a few times, and the largest light dipped well below the others even when it was lined up horizontally. My friend noticed that the radio was distorted for a few minutes as it drifted over the lake, and the intersection we were at was stuck at an all-way stop except for one pedestrian light that was stuck on go, [I didn't associate this with the object, but my friend totally did] until the object disappeared [maybe four minutes]. We both felt a distinct "tingling" and "hair-raising" sensation at our chest and crown, too! The object was moving west, then changing directions, then hovering, then down straight over or into the lake.Estimated height and speed of approach and departure: 3000 feet? then 1000 feet?"

"Moving very fast, again I can't be sure of how fast, then drifting down very slowly in almost totally straight down, but with a slight arc"

ATHERTON TABLELANDS -- Brian Vike reports on February 12, 2004, that Australian gentleman wrote that he and his partner have been witnessing and filming numerous objects in the night skies. Some are orbs, saucers, triangular craft and unusual lights. He has taken a stack of photos and a great deal of footage and Brian will be reporting on what the fellow sends along to me.

The Atherton Tablelands in north Queensland are 3,500 feet above sea level, tropical, with sunny days /clear nights. They are up the road from Tully a well know hotspot for UFO sightings.

KAUFMAN COUNTY -- The observer took a video of green dancing lights on February 10, 2005, at about 7:30 PM. He states, "I was looking straight up when I saw this light moving due north and jumped out of my truck, turned the camcorder on but could see nothing, and thought the thing was broke. When I figured the dust caps were still on, I took them off and started taping. As I zoomed in on it, I saw it was green, first one of these I've seen. The clouds were still coming in from the west, but it was still kind of clear in that part of the sky. Lots of green things have seen here lately. I am glad I got this one."

A webcam that sends images of the U.S. Capitol area over the Web reportedly photographed an UFO at about 3:15 AM on February 10, 2005. The webcam is reportedly operated by the National Park Service and is located bordering the northern end of Arlington National Cemetery and faces east. The image shows an apparently large, flat, metallic-appearing object with the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and U.S. Capitol building in the background.

A researcher with reported that he spotted the image on the webcam feed and posted the images on their site.

Thanks to, Skywatch International, National Park Service, and Goege Filer.

Webmaster's note: The object on the image is actually a conventionnal aircraft with afterimage such as those that make insects look like so-called "rods."


ISSAQUAH -- The witness reports: "As I was driving north on February 7, 2005, at 6 PM., I saw four crafts with red and white lights hovering over Lake Sammamish. For a long time they did not move at all. I thought they must be helicopters but I have never seen helicopters with lights like that. There were about three red lights in a row and a white light that flashed. I cannot account for them other than to think they were UFOs."

WEST HAVEN - Seven friends were playing out side when they saw a UFO on February 7, 2005, at midnight: "The disk shaped thing was red and yellow and flew really slow like it was watching us. It then flew up and did a flip and disappeared."

TALLAHASSEE – The witness noticed a flying jet way up leaving a vapor trail at 7:30 AM, and maybe a 1,000 feet above it was a round perfect sphere, silver, and very shiny. "The reason it caught my eye was because it was leaving no vapor trail at all, and it wasn't flying formation with the jet , except it would move side to side a little. Then, all of a sudden it disappeared."

CASHEL – My friends are in a band and we were driving back from a gig and stopped the van just before 6 AM, north of the town of Cashel near Thurles, on February 5, 2005. They looked up to see three large bright lights, too bright and low to be stars. The lights were independent and lined up on top of each other with the top light slightly off to one side. Suddenly, fighter planes began approaching the lights from three different directions and at this point the middle light began to flash very quickly blinking on/off. All three lights simply faded out by the time the planes had reached the point in the sky where they were located."

NEWTON. -- The witness reports: "My children and I were on our way home, when we saw two large fireballs, that moved crisscross from each other, then disappeared on February 4, 2005, at 7:30 AM. We pulled over at the rest area and watched the lights in the sky that seemed to dance. Another fireball appeared and we got in the car and follows towards Olney."

Unlike France, the United Kingdom's Department of Defense has now started to declassy previously secret reports of UFO sightings.

They include radar/visual observations of high interest from the pas but also very recent sighting reports, incuding 88 from year 2004, including of course many which seem explainable as ordinary meteors.

Other sightings are not so easy to dismiss. For example a report from Surrey for May 20, 2004, describes a UFO with "grooves and windows" but no room for humans.

A report from Goole, East Yorkshire, recorded in April last year, noted: "The object looked like a boomerang and was stationary over a power station. An aircraft was circling the object."

In the same month, a UFO observer from Seaforth, Merseyside, noted: "I saw a UFO with a cluster of four bright lights in a ring shape on it. Three beams of white light shone upwards and disappeared."

Because the MoD did not want to deal with UFOs as a scientific matter anymore in the recent years, the latest files are not in-depth investigation reports but rather recorded sighting reports.

The Inependant newspaper's on line edition indicates that the older files from mid-1976 and 1977 released last month contain "hundreds of documents previously kept secret by the Ministry of Defence's special UFO department, known as S4F, detail many reports of a possible visit by extraterrestrial life-forms. One is made by an RAF pilot and two NCOs at RAF Boulmer, Northumberland."

"In July 1977 Flt-Lt A M Wood reported "bright objects hanging over the sea". The MoD document adds that the RAF officer said the closest object was "luminous, round and four to five times larger than a Whirlwind helicopter". The UFOs were reported to be three miles out to sea at a height of about 5,000ft."

"The officer, whose report is supported by Cpl Torrington and Sgt Graham, said: "The objects separated. Then one went west of the other, as it manoeuvred it changed shape to become body-shaped with projections like arms and legs." The report describes Flt-Lt Wood as "reliable and sober".

Moreover, two radar stations tracked the phenomenon.

The newspaper adds: "That account was deemed so sensitive to the national interest that the MoD had delayed its release for an extra three years. But under the Freedom of Information Act, which came into force on 1 January, the file has been declassified."


NOTTINGHAM -- On February 2, 2005, at 11:40 AM, the observer was outside having a cigarette and looked up to see a triangular black object move across the sky very fast and I couldn't stop staring, then, it went vertically upwards and vanished.

BROOKLYN – The witness reports, "I'm a 16 year old high school student and I was witness to a sighting, that appeared on ABC News, on February 2, 2005, at 2:30 PM. I looked out my window and saw what looked like vertical lines in the grayish-blue clouds with lines that were almost gold. Then one by one more rips appeared. One was headed towards the Verazanno Bridge. There were two orbs near the bridge and one of the "lines" went from vertical to horizontal, and became fireballs, almost like jets. The jet-trail disappeared, almost like a comet. The one by the bridge slowly moved, and the two spheres disappeared, and that one line kind of just drifted, but eventually it went out of my line of sight, due to a tree, and that was it.

Thanks to Peter Davenport, NUFORC Director,


BERKELEY -- The witness reports: "I was in the shower and I looked out the window on February 2, 2005, at 7:30 AM, and saw an orange oval, it was fairly high in the sky. Once I saw it, it just hovered over a park and a few seconds later it started to fly off extremely fast."

MESA – The observer was coming home from work when he saw a bright red light in the sky on February 2, 2005, at 12:50 AM. He kept following south on Ellsworth Highway and a bright blue light appeared right next to it going the same direction. He pulled over to the side of the road and noticed the blue light disappeared and then another red light appeared in front of the other red light. He states, "In my personal opinion I witnessed one of the triangle UFO's. I didn't see the shape of the craft but these lights were moving slow and didn't resemble any type of plane or helicopter. At 01:05 AM, the two red lights continued southeast. I felt this was not a normal airliner or helicopter cruising through the night sky. They were way too bright and moving much slower than a normal plane. THEY LOOKED LIKE POLICE LIGHTS IN THE SKY!"
