USA UFO News : Rectangle UFO Sighting Over Chicago International Airport, USA 31 July, 2010

After China Xiaoshan Airport UFO, Williams Gateway Airport UFO, Arizona, USA
and City Of Siauliai, Lithuania UFO sighting now we have latest rectangle UFO sighting which is also over/near Airport.

According to eyewitness testimonial account who is also ready to go for lie detecting test "at 250PM while driving to work on 12:20 on 31 July,2010 I looked out my driver side window towards the Gary/Chicago international airport and noticed a large "banner" flying above the airport. I look back to read what the "banner" was advertising and I noticed that it wasn't a "banner" at all!

Gary is a city in Lake County, Indiana, United States. The city is in the southeastern portion of the Chicago metropolitan area and is 25 miles from downtown Chicago.

It was a large rectangular/square object about the size of 4 to 5 highway billboard signs and was yellow to orange in color.

It was very "dingy" but still transparent. I looked around and didn't see any other craft in the area. The object was actually about 1 mile WEST away from the airport and it was not moving or making any noise.

It's shape was perfectly rectangular/square like a playing card on it's side. The lines of the object were perfectly straight. It really stood out from the overcast clouds and sun because the clouds are more rounded in shape and they were slightly moving the object was not.

It also stood out because it was slightly yellow and orange. I felt bewildered for a moment and looked for anything that could tell me what this object was. There were no other craft, there weren't any strings attached, there were no external compartments or moving parts to it. It was just THERE, halfway up the skyline sitting very stoic and unnatural.

I slowed my vehicle down from about 40 mph to about 20 mph and watched it until I had to exit onto Cline Avenue to go to work. I would say that the entire incident only lasted 1 to 2 minutes. I continued to look back to try to find it but I couldn't.

By that time my view back towards the object was blocked by highway ramps and buildings. When I parked my car inside the parking garage, I tried again to get another view of the object but I could not.

There were too many obstructions blocking my line of sight. This feeling of embarrassment and bewilderment has stayed with me all day. I worked 330-1130PM tonight and felt that I HAD to tell somebody.

So I told my wife, I sent an Email to the Gary/Chicago international airport. I tried to call them but all I got was a recorded message.

Then I looked up MUFON on wikipedia and here I am telling my story. I do not believe in Aliens or things of that nature.

I know that I saw "something" today, but I do not know what it was.

I will tell anyone that wants to listen my story and I will take any lie detector test there is. I'll undergo any evaluation. I'm sure that there's an explanation for what I saw, and I would like to here it.

Williams Gateway sighting report. We lived two miles from Williams Gateway when we saw an object (two lights, no solid object) the week of 9/11. All air traffic was grounded. We were out back about 9:00pm with the dogs when two lights in tandem circled the Valley several times then zipped off to the west like something out of Star Trek.

USA UFO News - UFO Sighting Reported Near Williams Gateway Airport, San Tan Valley Arizona 30 July 2010

According to eyewitness testimonial- At approximately 9:21 p.m. on 30th July,2010 I was headed to McDonald's to get my children a snack but looked out my upstairs bedroom window, which faces a Northwesterly direction and noticed a bright light low on the horizon.

I looked at it a few moments recalling that Williams Gateway Airport is near the location but proceeded to get a bearing on distance and size and it just didn't seem to add up.

An airplane even of a large commercial type would be much smaller in size than this and I could follow its movement clearly.

A bit stumped I grabbed my cell phone keys and purse, I went downstairs and got in my car and proceeded to drive North. When I reached Hunt Highway approximately 2 to 3 hundred yards from my home the object.which appeared to be white lights in somewhat of a straight line with the center being out of 'line' it was just over the tops of neighboring houses moving at a pace that wouldn't of made sense if landing at Williams Gateway again the bright white lights which seemed to be in a line perhaps 'broken' in the middle.

Now appeared to be in a triangular shape gaining more clarity as it headed in a southern direction. I had driven approximately a mile and a half or so to McDonalds on the south side of the intersection of Hunt Highway and Bella Vista, when I called a friend of mine 'Jeff'who lives in Mesa near the Southern Avenue/U.S.60 intersection and asked him if he could see any 'odd looking' object in the sky the time is approximately 9:29 p.m.

He told me he was headed outside to take a look as I was giving him my description.I had pulled over into a parking spot in the McDonalds parking lot to continue my estimate of direction 'Jeff' should look towards..and estimate of location he informed me he was now driving down Ellsworth Road towards Williams Gateway Airport and said there was too many buildings trees etc obstructing his view.

Familiar with the area I told him it certainly wouldn't be long and he would definitely see it and as we were talking.I decided to pull out of McDonald's and try to follow this object in the sky which had now disappeared behind the buildings just North of my location.
I proceeded West on Hunt Highway when I noticed not one but two helicopters one coming from the east towards the west and one from the west coming in an easterly direction.
I asked Jeff if he could see the helicopters now that seem to be headed towards this objects direction. He said he could not. At this time I pulled off Hunt Highway onto the dirt approximately 300 yards from the entrance to Walmart and proceeded to watch this object in the sky It appeared very large and in a now definite triangular shape with the tip facing at 11 'o clock .staying stationary and three white lights on each side of the sides of the triangle but there appeared to be no bottom of the triangle it illuminated a sort of transparent light that shined just past the framing of the triangle.

There were also red lights in between the first and second lights on each side of the object. As I was quickly telling Jeff of these events the object lit up illuminated the object was clearly a triangle shape...dark in nature it seemed and bright bright white lights.

I do not recall seeing the red lights at this time. I needed to get off the phone with Jeff so I could take a picture of this object and perhaps roll my video cam but wanted to go back up the road to a bit higher ground to get a better position for the photo.

I made a 'U' turn back onto Hunt Hi-way headed East and this object was now at about 7pm from me just past my left shoulder driving.I was telling Jeff my location and direction of travel when I quickly pulled over into a tire store just West of the same McDonalds I was at prior.

I could not see past the buildings so I drove south in the parking lot until I could get a view now at about 4 or 5 o'clock from me and it was traveling at a swift pace in a southern direction again 'Jeff' was now asking me locations and my estimate of where this object might be from the direction of travel he was coming from.

I even recall asking him if he could see the bright star in the southwesterly direction.At this time I had turned around and proceeded to the McDonald's drive through (**laughing** ok...I've got hungry kids waiting!!) I then asked 'Jeff' if I could call him back in a minute.

The time is approximately 9;45 p.m. As I was leaving the drive through window I called 'Jeff' back approximate time is 9:47 p.m.

As I approached Hunt Highway driving east, I had to physically turn to look behind me to see if the object was still there. It was but now it was even higher in the sky.ch brighter and appeared to be very large.

Obviously I was a bit excited/panicked/shocked and 'Jeff' yelled at me on the phone to 'shut up'...and to 'get off the phone take pictures zoom in if you can and start taking pictures' regardless of if I thought they were good enough light enough etc.

I then got to Johnson Ranch Blvd turned south when I noticed that the vehicle in front of me, was also pulling off the road, (as I was...so I could take a damn photo!!) at that time Jeff' was listening to me tell him about the driver in front of me pulling over to look at this object as well......when I heard him say 'are you there' I responded 'yes' then we lost our connection. The approximate time is 9:51 p.m.

When I looked down at my phone I tried to bring my cell phone camera up on the menu. When I glanced back up at the object - it was moving at a pace that alarmed me.

The depth perception of this object was tricky I could clearly see it moving but too big to be that close?? It just didn't make sense and at that moment it completely disappeared. I yelled 'no no' continued to look for it in the sky and it was no longer there.

I pulled back onto the street and pulled up in my driveway where I proceeded upstairs with food in hand and ran to my bathroom window to see
if I could see the object in the same location I had seen it before I now saw bright white lights gradually fading in and out sometimes one light then two then four then back to three or one.

'Jeff' had called back approximately 9:53 p.m, when I told him I would get back to him.I was shooting photos I then proceeded to take photos-I climbed out my bedroom window facing North..onto the top of my backyard's patio roof...and began taking photos of the unstable lights. The lights flickered/faded in and out.. for approximately 20 to 30 minutes longer before never appearing again. I continued watching until nearly 1:30 am July 31st with no unusual activity.

I then sat down at my desk and began drawing a sketch of what I saw and its description as best I could.

I then began searching the internet to see if anyone else had reported seeing this object and/or these lights that is how I came to find this website. The time is approximately 3:41 a.m. July 31, 2010.source

Morning, all!

Auntym posted this on Ufomania and I thought it was cute.... cheesy

Honest, Sweetheart!!

By now, everyone has heard of the Air Force's ultra-high-security, super-secret base in Nevada, known simply as "Area 51." Late one afternoon, the Air Force folks out at Area 51 were very surprised to see a Cessna landing at their "secret" base. They immediately impounded the aircraft and hauled the pilot into an interrogation room.

The pilot's story was that he took off from Vegas, got lost, and spotted the Base just as he was about to run out of fuel. The Air Force started a full FBI background check on the pilot and held him overnight during the investigation.

By the next day, they were finally convinced that the pilot really was lost and wasn't a spy. They gassed up his airplane, gave him a terrifying "you-did-not-see-a-base" briefing, complete with threats of spending the rest of his life in prison, told him Vegas was that-a-way on such-and-such a heading, and sent him on his way.

The next day, to the total disbelief of the Air Force, the same Cessna showed up again. Once again, the MP's surrounded the plane . . . only this time there were two people in the plane.

The same pilot jumped out and said, "Do anything you want to me, but my wife is in the plane and you have to tell her where I was last night!"

Toxic Soup??!


CNN

Report: BP used excessive dispersants in Gulf oil spill


By the CNN Wire Staff
August 1, 2010 9:01 a.m. EDT

(CNN) -- New documents released by a congressional subcommittee indicate that Coast Guard officials allowed BP to use excessive amounts of chemical dispersants in the Gulf of Mexico.

BP used the chemicals to break up oil after the April 20 Deepwater Horizon rig explosion sent millions of gallons of crude gushing into the Gulf.

Despite a federal directive restricting their use, the Coast Guard routinely granted exemptions, said Rep. Edward J. Markey, chairman of the House Energy and Environment Subcommittee.

In May, the Environmental Protection Agency, along with the Coast Guard, ordered the oil giant to stop surface application of the chemicals during the oil spill except in rare occasions, according to a House subcommittee on energy and environment.

In rare cases, exemptions had to be requested, documents show.
"BP carpet bombed the ocean with these chemicals, and the Coast Guard allowed them to do it," Markey said in a statement Saturday. "After we discovered how toxic these chemicals really are, they had no business being spread across the Gulf in this manner."

The exemptions granted "were in no way rare," Markey said in a letter to retired Adm. Thad Allen, the former commandant of the Coast Guard who is now overseeing the federal response to the oil spill.
The Coast Guard approved more than 74 exemptions in 48 days, Markey said. In one instance, Coast Guard officials allowed the oil giant to use a larger volume of dispersants than it had applied for, he said.
Dispersants are "a toxic stew of chemicals, oil and gas, with impacts that are not well understood," Markey, a Democrat from Massachusetts, said in the letter to Allen.

Markey said the findings are based on an analysis by the Energy and Environment Subcommittee.

Calls to a BP press office and the Joint Information Center were not immediately returned.

"The use of dispersant is always a difficult decision, with environmental trade-offs that must be taken seriously into consideration," EPA spokesman Brendan Gilfillan said Sunday. "As a result, its use in response to the BP spill was subject to numerous strict conditions once it quickly became apparent that BP wanted to use it in unprecedented quantities and in novel ways."

BP's use of dispersants peaked at 70,000 gallons on May 24, the EPA said. It was after that the EPA ordered the halt on its use, except for rare occasions. From the time that directive was issued, dispersant use dropped 72 percent, Gilfillan said.

Initially, the EPA was not involved in the day-to-day decisions about which exceptions were granted, but that changed in late June.

"While EPA may not have concurred with every individual waiver granted by the federal on-scene coordinator, the agency believes dispersant use has been an essential tool in mitigating this spill's impact, preventing millions of gallons of oil from doing even more damage to sensitive marshes, wetlands and beaches and the economy of the Gulf coast," Gilfillan said.

Markey said the subcommittee also found contradictions on how much chemical dispersant was being used. On other occasions, BP used more than the amount approved by the Coast Guard, Markey said in his letter.

The report brings into question the total amount of dispersants used in the Gulf. BP says it has used 1.8 million gallons to break up oil flowing from the Deepwater Horizon's ruptured well.

"The validity of those numbers are now in question," Markey said.

Yes, thank you Crys... I had a lovely relaxing Sunday... and I hope you did too. grin

I love this picture...."Alice in Wonderland"... there are some interesting faces in those roses. Roses are my favourite.... I have so many growing in my garden... I lost count. cheesy

Also I wanted to comment on those beautiful "bridge" pictures.... Interesting symbolism in bridges. The bridge symbolizes the link between conscious and the unconscious... mind and matter. smiley

Please keep those beautiful pictures coming.... grin

Hi Philliman




Yes, I thought pretty much the same, but it wasn’t until many years later. I had no idea at the time…they never harmed me, it was the fear of the unknown at the time that scared the heck out of me. Since that time I have seen quite a few, and they haven’t bothered me…. It’s more an inquisitiveness to find out what they are about.

Yes, we're so preprogrammed to fear anything which is alien, isn't it. Fear the Greys, fear the Reppies, fear the Nordics, Insectoids, Shadow Beings etc. etc. If you talk to people who have encountered such a being it appears that most of them had no reason to fear them at all.

Oh, wait...eyecandy. wink

Hi Philliman

So very true about 'preprogrammed to fear'... All we really have to fear, is fear itself. Fear is definitely a mind killer.

What a GORGEOUS splash of colour with the combination of Lillies, Petunia's and Salvia's..... just gorgeous!
