Stewart Swerdlow told me a couple years ago that Wyoming is a "hotbed of
UFO activity" but I think it's just too darned cold to stare at the skies
most of the year up here.  I haven't seen a UFO in years, just a few of
those "great balls of fire." Best Regards,

An alien was sighted on the beach in Rosarito, in Mexico's state of Baja
California on Wednesday, February 29, 2001 by two Mexican policemen.

According to Urak Pavlov, director of UTRENE, a UFO research group based
in Tijuana, B.V., Mexico, The two policemen were on patrol near the
thermoelectric plant in Rosarito" when "they saw what appeared to be a
reptilian creature walking on the beach with a black suit on and with
glaring red eyes. The creature was seen at 3:17 a.m. At first they were
too scared to talk to anyone about the incident and preferred not to speak
of it."

The Reptoid sighting is only one of many UFO incidents that have taken
place in Baja California recently, Pavlov said.

There has been "a wave of sightings in Baja California, especially in the
mountains and along the coast."

On Monday, March 5, 2001, Pavlov reported, ""There were 50 sheep
mutilated on ranches near Tocate, B.C. All of the sheep were left
without any blood"

On Wednesday, February 28, 2001, "in the evening, my wife and I closed the
office, and she said, 'Look! What is that!?' I said, 'Let me get the video
camera.' So I did," he recalled.

"This big luminescent object reflected all the colors of the
spectrum--yellow, red, blue, white, etc. and stopped at one place in the
sky in Tijuana."

Elsewhere in Mexico, a new flurry of UFO sightings took place last week
over Mount Popocatepetl, a large volcano located 60 kilometers (36 miles)
east of Mexico City.

According to the Spanish news agency EFE, "residents of the (Mount)
Popocatepetl area, reported seeing lights that 'fly over the volcano,'
which has been erupting since December 1994."

"The lights were seen last night (Monday, March 5, 2001) over
Popocatepetl, and dozens of residents from local communities called
radio stations to make this known," according to Radio ACIR in Puebla, a
city 125 kilometers (72 miles) east of Mexico City.

"According to the reports by Puebla radio stations, the alleged sighting
could be seen in particular from an area near the volcano known for its
accumulations of energy that interfere with the operation of compasses."

"Eyewitness Guadalupe Carrillo told a local (radio) station that 'the
object had movement, passed over the volcano, turned around and rotated.'"

"A resident of San Francisco Totlmihuacan pointed out that one of the
lights remained fixed in the sky while another moved around it. Another
person claimed to have captured it all on videotape and make it available
to the public."

"Popocatepetl has an elevation of 5,542 meters (18,288 feet) and is one of
the places in Mexico where there is talk of suspicious lights and
unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and a number of such reports have
emanated from the mountain" since the current cycle of active volcanism
began in December 1994. (Muchas gracias a Scott Corrales, auto de los

On Thursday, March 8, 2001, at 11:30 a.m., a daylight disc appeared over
the southern end of Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras, and was seen by
two dozen motorists.

"Just around 11:30 a.m., with the sun shining in almost its noontime
glory, an oval unknown artifact, gray in color, appeared and
occasionally vibrated with intense whiteness over a region on the city's
periphery in a contrail which seemed to reach from the (hilly) Cristo del
Picacho area."

The UFO's appearance "was witnessed by two telephone technicians, one of
whom happens to be an employee of (the Honduran newspaper) La Tribuna."

"When Gerardo Aceitano and his assistant Juan Francisco Mairena claimed to
have had 'the experience of their lives' noting that the starship (UFO)
might have been search for a power source (some 400 meters down the road
is an electrical substation) we are reminded about what researchers and
ufologists have told us about the way in which extraterrestrial
civilizations enter our planet."

Aceitano and Mairena "were heading back to our main offices in a Siemens
Fiorella-type van panel truck and had barely passed a few meters in front
of a gas station" on the Paseo Kennedy "when the UFO appeared in the sky
at an estimated altitude of 300 meters (1,000 feet)."

"Similarly surprised were college student Juan Flores and amateur
photographer Juan Carlos Molina , who managed to snap photographs of the
UFO, the first one over Cristo del Pichaco, and the second one over the
Parque Nacional La Tigra (Jaguar National Park--J.T.)) from their
residences in barrio Santa Lucia."

"'We were driving along the Paseo Kennedy back to the La Tribuna offices
and, passing the filling station, we were chatting in the truck. Upon
looking ahead, we saw something moving back and forth, up and down, some
300 meters up. At first we thought it was a piece of paper in the wind,
but when we stopped the vehicle, we could see that it was a flying
saucer,' stated Gerardo Aceitano."

"'We stopped the truck and saw that the UFO was gray, oval and with a
whitish intensity , and while it was far away, we could see that it was
about 5 meters (16.5 feet) in diameter,' he described, while Juan
Francisco Mairena corroborated the account, adding that he was 'overcome
by the sighting' and which had lasted about three minutes."

"A row of 20 cars behind the Siemens vehicle stopped, and the occupants
got out and watched the UFO's movements until it vanished by speeding away
to the southeast."

"'Its velocity was amazing, perhaps faster than sound,' said Mairena, who
confessed to still being stupefied by the unusual event." (See La Tribuna
of Tegucigalpa, Honduras for March 9, 2001, "Dozens of citizens see
another UFO." Muchas gracias a Scott Corrales y Gloria Coluchi para eso
articulo de diario.)


"George Calderon, 20, a college student, was enjoying two days of
camping with his sweetheart, Katty, and a couple of friends near Villa
Frontera," a wilderness area near Arica in Chile, "on (Friday) February 9,
2001 at 8 p.m. when he experienced one of the most startling incidents of
his life."

"The campers had decided to stay one more day for no particular reason .
However, they had been advised by the campground's owner that a group of
persons would be coming that same evening and stated that they (George and
friends--J.T.) should not go beyond the perimeter of their campsite."

"Without hesitation, the young campers accepted the owner's terms, but
their curiosity was piqued. While roasting a piece of meat at around 9:30
p.m., they saw a group of about 10 people, including children, moving
toward a nearby location. The group was clad in white tunics, added the
college student."

"George stopped preparing the roast with his friends upon hearing the
sound of bells. He walked four meters (13 feet) into the woods, where his
girl friend joined him. And then he claims to have seen 'a large circular
object irradiating a powerful red light' The object hovered over the
white-robed participants, who held hands and chanted prayers and canticles
that the student was unable to understand."

"The UFO, added George, was 40 meters (165 feet) away from the event,
moved in a in a different direction and then its light bathed the whole

"'The object moved over the persons every time they caused the bells to
ring,' he said."

"The young man and his girl friend witnessed this phenomenon for
approximately one-and-a-half hours (90 minutes) . Then they returned to
their tents and the company of their friends. The sky turned slowly cloudy

"What he had seen was not a dream. Nor was he able to make out the
outlines" of diagrams the sect members had drawn on the ground,
"although 'one of them featured a triangle, and a circle' with a bottle
with the label Lira with the picture of a little old man on it."

'I'm positive it was a UFO. It went up and down and every which way,'"
George told the newspaper.

"When they were ready to leave the campground, they explained to the
manager what they had seen the previous evening. The startled owner
confirmed that the youngsters had witnessed the event and told them that
what they had seen was 'something beautiful.' but that they hadn't seen
everything and that these were things that would be seen in the future."

""But that very same evening (Saturday, March 10, 2001) the students'
(cell) phones refused to work--no dial tone could be established. Katty,
George's girl friend, suffered a stomach ache. Ingrid, one of their fellow
campers, took ill with a headache, and Oscar felt dizzy. George, a
mechanical drawing student from the University of Taracapa, felt intense
pain along his spine."

"The campground manager confirmed the sighting but requested that his name
be kept in the strictest confidence, adding that this is not the first
time such supernatural events have been recorded" in Villa Frontera "and
that the very same events will be seen in the future." (See the newspaper
La Estrella de Arica for March 4, 2001, "UFOs over Arica--phenomenon
reaches city." Otra vez, muchas gracias a Scott Corrales y Gloria

(Editor's Note: So now we have another mass death of birds, like in
Oklahoma City recently and in Bastrop, Louisiana in 1998. This may be a
natural phenomenon. Charles Fort listed many instances of the mass death
of starlings during the late Nineteenth and early Twentieth Centuries. See
The Complete Books of Charles Fort, Dover Publications, New York, N.Y.,
1974 for more information on this baffling phenomenon.)


Hundreds of residents of Italy's Leccese province spotted a luminous
spherical UFO on Sunday, March 4, 2001 after nightfall.

"Numerous residents witnessed a large object with flashing lights in
both Lecce and Gallipoli. The large luminous globe hovered to the west of
both cities. Several witnesses observed the object closely with binoculars
and telescopes. They watched it change from a luminous sphere to a shape
that was more triangular. As it departed, it left a brilliant gleaming
trail. The phenomenon lasted for two or three hours and was witnessed by
hundreds of people at 10 p.m.. The object departed at a high rate of
speed." (See the Italian newspaper Gazzetta di Mezzogiurno for March 6,
2001. Grazie a Eduardo Russo di Centro Italiano di Studi Ufologici per
questo rapporto.)


KFOR-TV in Oklahoma City reported "that a huge bright object was seen by
hundreds of people in central and northern Oklahoma."

The KFOR-TV newsroom "was flooded with calls," Oklahoma ufologist Jim
Hickman reported, "The 'object' was described as being an orange sphere
with a red-blue 'streak.' It was seen from Oklahoma City all the way to
the Kansas state line. The National Weather Service was contacted ' and
they said "it was 'most likely rocket debris.'"

The overflight took place at 11:18 p.m. on Tuesday, March 6, 2001.

An eyewitness, "Deborah H. from Elk City, Okla. reports, 'I was leaving
the parking lot at my workplace. I was traveling north, slowing up for a
stop sig. I saw the cloudy sky directly in front of me turn light blue and
I saw an orange tail race across the sky in front of me. The object was
moving from the southeast to the northwest. It had a long trail of yellow

'The sighting lasted only for a couple of seconds as it was moving very
fast. Within about 15 minutes of my sighting, I heard over my scanner one
of our local (Elk City) police officers say, 'Did anyone else see that?'
Another police officer replied, 'That's a big affirmative.' The sky was
very overcast,' she added, 'and I felt like the blue flash was the object
reflecting off the underside of the clouds.'" (Many thanks to Jim Hickman
for this report.)


On Sunday, March 11, 2001, at 9:40 p.m., Brian Long was outdoors in his
hometown of Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada, about 40 miles (64 kilometers)
south of Toronto. when he spotted a triangular UFO flying over Lake Erie.

"The UFO went from the west to the northeast, heading towards the
Niagara Falls area" Brian reported, "The object came over Lake Erie and
flew from one end of the Fort Erie skyline to the other in just a few
seconds. Four or five seconds, at the most. Triangular shape; three
lights, one in each corner, and completely silent. The color blended in
with the night sky." (Email Form Report)

(Editor's Comment: The eastern end of Lake Erie is sometimes called "the


"Space shuttle Discovery lifted off Thursday," March 8, 2001, on a
mission to replace the weary crew of the International Space Station,"
also known as Station Alpha, with three fresh workers. Russian cosmonaut
Yuri Usachev and American astronauts Jim Voss and Susan Helms moved into
the station for a four-month stay," following the shuttle's docking with
the station two days later.

"Besides a new station crew and four other astronauts, the Discovery is
hauling 10,000 pounds of supplies."

Susan Helms will be the first woman to live aboard Station Alpha.

"Just before lift-off, she waved and said, 'Bye, Mom!' to the television
cameras." (See USA Today for March 9, 2001, "Shuttle enroute to replace
station crew," page 3A, and the Chicago Tribune for March 9, 2001,
"Shuttle Discovery travels to space station with new crew," page 6.)



Cynthia Newby Luce writes, "In the last page of your report talking
about the microwave weapon (see UFO Roundup, volume 6, number 9 for
March 1, 2001, ""U.S. Marines unveil a microwave weapon," page 11) you
mentioned at the end that a UFO crashed in Varginha, Minas Gerais, Brazil.
I think you have the date incorrectly written as 199 when it happened in
1996. January 20th, 1996 was when the three girls saw the odd being which
was given wide coverage in the news media."

(Editor's Comment: You're absolutely right, Cindy. It was my typo.
Sorry. Readers who want to check out the original coverage of the event
should go to UFO Roundup, volume 1, numbers 12 through 16.)


Barbara Price writes, "Your article was wonderful about David Burnes and
(Pierre) L'Enfant and the tunnels underneath D.C. (For more on the ancient
tunnels beneath the USA's diamond-shaped District of Columbia, see UFO
Roundup volume 6, number 4 for January 25, 2001, "1791--Hillary's Haunted
Neighborhood," page 7.) I'm a descendant of David Burnes, and he may have
known of those tunnels from his father and his grandfather, as they owned
land in this area dating back to 1721, when the first David Burnes made
the purchase."


Donnie Shevlin writes, "The meteor story that you posted in UFO Roundup,
volume 6, number 10 ("Small meteor hits a garden in York, UK." page 9) had
a later rendition by the Associated Press. What followed a brief
investigation was a power line explosion underground. The rush of air
Sylvia Mercer felt was a clod of dirt passing her face. She was somewhat
relieved to hear that it was not a meteorite, but worried that a power
line could do such a thing.

From the UFO Files...


Another strange case involving a "fire poltergeist" took place in
Glendive, Montana in 1958. Like the one in Bladenboro, North Carolina
twenty year's earlier (see UFO Roundup for March 8, 2001, "1938: North
Carolina's Fire Poltergeist," page 8 (the Glendive case also had a
teenaged girl living on the premises.

"On January 10, 1958, at 8 a.m., a Mrs. Charles King of Glendive,
Montana walked into the living room of her home and a window curtain
burst into flame. After putting out the blaze, she decided that an
electrical spark must have been responsible, and she disconnected all
appliances attached to electrical outlets in the room."

"Half an hour later another fire broke out in the living room. Mrs. King
called the Glendive Fire Department which extinguished the blaze. Damage
was not extensive. "

"At 4:20 p.m. Jack Shearer was installing storm windows when he looked
through a window and saw a wastepaper basket burning. He ran into the
house and doused the fire with a bucket of water."

"Two hours later, two teen-age girls, who were watching" a rerun of My
Little Margie (a TV situation comedy of the 1950s starring Gale Storm and
Charles Farrell--J.T.) "on the television in the living room, noticed
smoke. They found a curtain ablaze in a bedroom."

"This time Fire Chief George Smith carefully inspected the house, but
could find no reason for the (fiery) outbreaks. Materials in which
spontaneous combustion might possibly occur were either removed or exposed
to the air. Electricity into the house was disconnected. Members of the
family took turns sitting up all night."

"During the next seven days, five more fires broke out. They were in the
bedroom of a granddaughter, Wendy - one destroying all the clothing in a
portable wardrobe; another in a storage closet; another burned a
tablecloth and still another was in a dresser drawer. Mrs. King's married
daughter was burned about the hands while fighting one fire, and the
daughter's husband was overcome by smoke. An expert from the (Montana)
state fire marshal's office came and departed, shaking his baffled head."

"Then, as is usual (in these cases) the phenomenon ended just as
suddenly as it had begun." (See the book Mysterious Fires and Lights by
Vincent H. Gaddis, Van Rees Press, New York, N.Y., 1967, pages 184 and
195. Also The Missoulian of Missoula, Montana for January 17, 1958,
"Another Mysterious Blaze.")
