As with the Ghost Stories thread, I am posting a UFO news thread to which I or anyone else can add the latest UFO stories, events, or other news items. This is not intended to limit new threads; please feel free post one as you see fit. I just think this helps to reduce clutter on the board often created by the typical news stories. Also, please feel free to post to the UFO Napster if you have any particularly credible and interesting information.

Here is the latest from Japan's UFO news:

This is a UFO News thread. We are looking for current events cited in mainstream publications - like local and major newspapers and television stations.

A luminous object trailing white smoke says meteorite to me, despite the expert's denial. He caims a meteorite would have been much faster and made alot of noise. However the one I saw with my own eyes back in about 1965 appeared to be traveling no faster than a small two seater airplane, and was just barely audible.

You know for a fact that what you saw was a meteor?

That is what the news on TV said it was the next day. They had film of it. It had been visible for hundreds of miles in several states. They tracked it by radar into the Canadian wilderness where it disappeared from the screen, but there were no reports of anyone having seen it come down.

The term "luminous" wouldn't be the best for what I saw. It was clearly burning. It was a ball of something that was covered in flame, and all the flame was dragged back behind it and eventually petered out into a trail of smoke that marked its path all the way back to the horizon. The flame was quite conventional, yellow flame. The net effect was like what you might get if squashed 50-100 old tires into a ball, set them on fire, and flung them with a trebouchet, except, of course, this thing went so much farther.

I have been seeing things similar looking to a ufo but it looks more of a triangle with curved corners. This frightened me.Apparently it was seen near the moon. Dont tell me it was a satelite. because i know what a satellite looks like. This had sort of blueish red lights. They were slowly flashing. Then this object started glowing bright white then dissappeared. I went over to my friends house the next day and he saw it too. We were both frightened. Ever since then we have stayed indoors.

I saw a UFO today at the beach today but I think it was just a bat that reflected light.

So, should we log your UFO as an IFB?

I assume that you saw a light flickering from time to time in one area of the sky?

IFB, illuminated flying bat? :tongue2:

actually at first I thought it was a shooting star: it moved across the sky really fast in a straight line and it was very bright, so I pointed and said "hey! a sh--- huh? that's not a shooting star" it started moving in zigzagging directions and then it disappeared at the horizon.

Actually a classic UFO tale: it moved really quick and there was no way an airplane could make such turns, but it was illuminated all the time. So I guessed it must not have been very high in the sky, although it seemed that way, a bat could've caught the light of the beach-bar that was further down.. I did theorize that maybe it ate too many fireflies.. but we don't have any fireflies at this part of the continent
