News and observation reports, October 2005:

Some of the UFO observations and ufology news in October 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.


"In the early morning hours of October 31, 2005," approximately "70,000 liters of water were found to be missing from a tank habitually employed to provide livestock with water." The bizarre incident took place on a ranch located 15 kilometers (9 miles) south of Parera in central Argentina's La Pampa province, just off Provincial Route 9.

According to ufologist Scott Corrales, "One of the most startling aspects of the 2002 cattle mutilation wave in Argentina was the disappearance of tremendous amounts of water from large cisterns known as 'tanques australianos' (literally, 'Australian tanks'-S.C.) in Argentina's cattle ranching communities. Entire swimming pools were drained empty in Santa Rosa, Argentina at the same time."

"Miguel Garrone, who leases the La Cabana ranch, says the tank was filled to the maximum on Saturday evening," October 29, 2005, "and was found completely empty in the early morning hours of Monday," October 31, 2005.

"No signs of breakage or filtration were found, not signs of moisture in the perimeter that could provide an answer to such a strange phenomenon."

"The livestock rancher indicated his astonishment, stressing that this is not the first time that such an event has occurred in the area."

"It is worth noting that on July 2, 2006 [sic, 2005], on a ranch belonging to Adolfo Ziegenfhus, some 4 kilometers (1.3 miles) from Quetrequen and 12 kilometers (7 miles) from Parera, another 70,000 liters of water vanished in a similar fashion - mysteriously and at night - without any trace ever being detected, not the existence of a leak or filtration that would justify the missing water ever being found."

An AFP newsbrief for October 21 tells that "a man threw himself out of the third floor" of his residence in Villeneuve-d'Ascq" "to escape from the aliens" according to the police. It seems that the unbalanced man broke two legs, and earlier the same day, the police officers had been called when he threw his TV set trough the window, according to him "to defend himself against the extraterrestrials."

The newsbrief appears in "Le Monde", on AOL info, on Nordnet on UFO review in the US.


On Sunday, October 23, 2005, at 8:45 p.m., eyewitness Sharon F. was "looking at Clee Hill from Ludlow," Shropshire, UK when she and her companions "saw a long line of colour-changing lights above Clee Hill. As the frame of reference, Clee Hill is about 600 meters (1,980 feet), and the objects appeared to be about 200 feet above" the summit.

"We watched it for ten minutes. Then we decided to drive two minutes away to get binoculars for a better view. On returning, the objects had disappeared. Nothing was vicible in the sky, as there was complete low cloud cover."

Sharon described the lights as "a long line of lights visible below the cloud level, changing colour, these appeared to be red, blue, green and orange."

"I was very interested to hear that somebody nearby had had a sighting within two days of this," Sharon added, noting that the Shropshire Star had reported a UFO in the vicinity of the motorway A5 on October 22, 2005.

Aviation expert Alfonso Salazar Mendoza, researcher and co-author of the book "Los Ovnis y la Aviacion Mexicana" has informed that during the first days of October 2005, the crew of a Boeing 737-200 (registration XA-MAA) witnessed the maneuvers of a plate-shaped unidentified flying object, described by the flight engineer as being highly luminous and similar to platinum.

The event occurred at 12:30 p.m. in the air corridor of the Mexican state of Oaxaca, at an altitude of 20,000 feet and under conditions of perfect visibility.

Witnesses describe the mysterious object as having emerged from a cloud and entering another, becoming visible during that period of time. They estimate that it was at a distance of 10 nautical miles from their aircraft.

The crew found the sighting truly remarkable, as in an earlier instance, another airliner belonging to the same company (Magnicharter) had reported a strange sphere that remained static over the World Trade Center air corridor in Mexico City.

In the opinion of researcher Alfonso Salazar, a large percentage of aviation professionals is convinced that unidentified flying objects indeed exist and in his next book, Los Ovnis y la Aviacion Mexicana II, (co-authored with Carlos Guzman) he will reveal new cases of UFO and aircraft encounters.

According to ufologist George Filer, during the last few weeks, there have been reports of UFO who landed and stayed "on ground for four hours Truk Island. Shipping noticed craft landing near the shore. Most heavy sightings continue along ring of fire."


Five unidentified flying objects (UFOs) were seen last Wednesday night," October 12, 2005, "over eastern Oruro" in Bolivia, "causing curiosity and amazement in thousands of witnesses who managed to see the unknown images, which were captured by Canal (Channel) 39 of the Corporacion Orurena de Comunicacion," a Bolivian TV network.

"The flying objects appeared in the sky at 10:30 p.m. They consisted of two strange objects located in the eastern region that drew people's attention due to their red, green and blue lights. They also appeared and vanished in the firmament."

Witnesses also reported that the multiple lights blinked in sequence.

""The most notorious one was a silvery, circular UFO that presented two circumferences-a smaller one located inside the object and another outside the circumference, spinning at an impressive speed."

"Canal 39 managed to record the UFOs' presence as citizens phoned the television station to describe what they could see from their respective areas."

"Abel Flores Mujica, one of the witnesses, manifested his surprise at having seen the unidentified object in space."

"'I refer to it as an artifact, since I couldn't believe what I was seeing. My daughter went outside, and I told her, 'That's a UFO. She replied that it wasn't a UFO, that it was the planet Mars that was delayed in covering (moving through-J.T.) space. But that object had lights, and it wasn't a star. Last night's event startled me, and then my daughter said, 'Look, it's not the only one, there are others there,' and it was evident,' he said."

"Canal 39 journalist and TV show host Pedro Rubin de Celis said that Wednesday night's sighting confirms the theory that we are not alone in the universe."

"'This has been a marvelous presence of UFOs in the firmament, and many people stepped out onto their balconies to observe this spectacle. The camera zoom has shown us, beyond the vehicle's flashes, a circle making concentric movements within other circles around the vessel and with a black dot at the center. The objects also had their own movement,' he explained."

Wemaster's note: probably astronomical.


On Thursday, October 6, 2005, at 7:30 p.m., Kathleen Amity was outdoors at her home in Martinsville, Indiana, looking north, when she spotted "what first appeared as two fireballs behind a hill and the tree line. Then the two split into four smaller balls of fire. Seconds later, four more appeared directly to the west."

"They all hovered above the tree line for about two minutes. Then they slowly sank behind the hill. They were extremely bright orange and let off an orange glow in the sky around them. It was 7:30 p.m. and had just gotten dark." (Email Form Report)

An interview of Yves Sillard was diffused on Radio France International on September 29, 2005. Yves Sillard held positions within the CNES (Ntional Center for Space Studies, the smaller equivalent of NASA for France), the armament, he worked on the Ariane rockets. He had created GEPAN, the group which studied UFO reports within CNES, when he was its director, in 1977.

In the interview, he explains that UFOs are a matter which must be considered seriously, and that CNES now will reactivate its UFO research effort, following an audit of 2001-2002, and provide again reasonable means of operation to this effort.

He specifies that research on UFO reports within CNES "had given up a bit" to "incredible misinformation campaigns which are very often intended to destabilise, to even ridicule those who cover the subject seriously."

He informs that a committee was created, having representatives of the principal organizations "which in France are concerned with that." He lists the National Gendarmerie, the National Police force, Civil Safety, the Air Force, the Civil Aviation, National Meteorology and adds that there will also be initially four scientists specialists in fields which are more or less in connection with UFOs, such as for example "propulsion, electromagnetism, astrophysics and also the social sciences."

He indicates that GEPAN and the SEPRA, during the last years have collected cases "which are documented perfectly, with witnesses whose credentials have been checked, but which are unexplainable by phenomena known today" and that "in face of that one can only make assumptions, and only assumptions."

He adds: "... I think that the Americans practises on the subject to which they devote, I am persuaded of it, much higher efforts of investigation than those of any other country, they practise a deliberated policy and learnedly orchestrated misinformation. It is a total misinformation. What for? Is it the fear to see their supremacy challenged if one day they face a much more advanced external civilization? Is it their concern of keeping for them a potential of technology asset? Or... or any other explanation, who knows?"
