This past Saturday night, an entire town stood still to watch five lights migrate throughout the sky. Most stargazers insist that it made slow quiet movements coordinating specific maneuvers that no man-made vehicle could do. Perhaps a Ron Mexico pick-up? I know it sounds crazy and the issue of planetary foreigners is a matter of belief or not. But this stuff is becoming pretty common. There's countless UFO sightings in Arizona.

A report in 2000, in a village 50 kilometers from Beijing, saw a "shimmering gold light" that 10 other Chinese villages/cities witnessed. The government, in all their outside-the-box thinking, said like being there, that it was airplane trails catching the low sun.

The UFO Reporting Center recorded 148 "alien visits" within the United States during January 2005. Scared yet?

Did you know...

Joseph Allen Hynek wrote a book in 1972 called The UFO Experience: A Scientific Study introducing the three kinds of alien encounters. They are:

First Kind - Sighting of UFO (odd lights, saucer)
Second Kind - Physical observation of UFO (crop circles, heat)
Third Kind - "Animate Beings" (E. T.)

These will be instant classics one day.
