Angels, Space Ships and the New World Order

By Jason Dunlap



What is the most important thing in life? In general, the answer to that question depends on your circumstances, but regardless, survival is a necessary requirement and we all know that. What happens when you know that you will not survive? What is important, then, your first priority, your motivation? Over the last few years, Center of Attention has brought you information that suggests, life as we know it is coming to an abrupt end, and an entirely new way of living, and motivation for survival will come into being. When one is on their death-bed, life as they know it will be ending soon, and survival in this life is of little concern. What is important is the joy of the moment, memories of the past, and comfort during the transition from this life into another. Few of those that have died have given much thought to preparing themselves for what lies ahead because it is the ultimate mystery. The best you can do is to act on your belief-system, which has no basis in reality. Religions have played a profound role in developing people's beliefs about what they will experience after death. Christianity, for example, wants you to believe that life in physical reality is some kind of initiation into a heavenly existence, provided that you qualify. Otherwise, you will be lost in some everlasting horror, which seems quite uncharacteristic of a benevolent and loving God. Most religious based beliefs are centered around the classic psychological motivation of moving toward pleasure (heaven) or moving away from pain (Hell), all in the interest of manipulating human behavior to meet some earthly standard, under the guise of being ordained by God. Myths and legends abound, regarding the nature of "the after-life", but the truth is that nobody really knows. The most one can hope for is to find some comfort in a belief-system that supports the notion that life has some ultimate, positive purpose, and consciousness continues beyond it. The dilemma we all face now, is that humanity is "on its death-bed" and soon will be moving, for all practical purposes, into another realm that we know nothing about, and preparation for what will happen afterwards is impossible, due to our ignorance, our "comfortable beliefs" being all we have to go on. Right now, the world is being inundated with a plethora of different beliefs that different groups want you to accept. There are two fundamental beliefs. Those that promote the notion that there is nothing to fear, nothing to worry about, and everything will be wonderful, and those that say that when the realization that, life as we know it is over, dawns on humanity, there will be panic, destruction, and Apocalypse. One side of the argument manipulates you into complacency, the other attempts to control you through fear. On the negative side, the one's that promote "nothing to worry about", want whatever is going to happen to be a complete surprise, and in the meantime, to stay out their way. On the positive side, those that promote "nothing to worry about", want you to be comfortable, joyful, and without stress as events unfold. Fear based projections have positive and negative sides, as well. On the negative, the Apocalyptic view focuses power and authority on those that know the most, and can control the masses by offering imagined sanctuary, providing you can qualify. This usually means you are capable of being productive and will follow orders without question. The positive side of the Apocalyptic view, is pressuring mankind into becoming conscious of what living is really about, and not being complacent in your daily life. They hope to motivate you to give up your mundane existence and want you to prepare to show the Universe you deserve to live. They want you to stand for noble principles and being disciplined in your practice of survival. They believe it is virtuous to defend one's honor and to fight against injustice, and with the Apocalypse at hand, one must be known as a person who will die in defense of threats against freedom for the "whole".

Assume for a moment that the transition from our current social order and technological foundation to some unimaginable reality is not going to be a slow evolution and development over a period of centuries, but will be an abrupt, and rapid, quantum leap for this civilization. At this time, we don't have to be too concerned how we will handle the end result, but how we will handle the transition. As always, things take care of themselves in the end, it's getting there that's the problem. We have a couple of milestones we can look forward to. There will be an event or circumstance that will mark the beginning of a great transition, sometime in the next decade. It could happen as early as tomorrow, or as late as 2007. Following this event, there will be significant turmoil within all societies. Everyone's usual daily routines and future priorities will change dramatically. The next major event will be the development of a "new order of things". The whole world will be motivated to create and build a new way of doing things, of organizing ourselves, for entirely new reasons. A major shift in "what am I alive for" will occur. Another milestone is the acceptance of humanity of "outside" assistance, both extraterrestrial and spiritual. For each of us, the final outcome, is the realization of an advanced level of consciousness and the eventual Ascension into realities beyond the physical or perhaps, the loss of our personal freedom and a destiny marked by subservience to dominating and manipulative "higher forces". Which outcome you will experience depends on how one handles the "transition".

The Players in the "End Game"
by Jason

Besides the billions of people concerned with everyday survival, the players in this End Game Scenario are: Angels and "other dimensional" beings; mentally, spiritually and technologically, advanced extraterrestrials; and the elite and powerful humans that control most of the earthly assets. Just as we humans have conflict amongst ourselves, organize in groups to gain positions of power, make plans and develop strategies to create outcomes we desire, so do the three major players in "the end game". On the extraterrestrial front we have hundreds of different civilizations intent on being instrumental in developing the future of the humans on Earth. They have organized themselves into three basic camps that approach their desired goals in different ways. They use different strategies to accomplish their ends. There are those whose strategy is "the end, justifies the means" and are willing to do whatever it takes to succeed. They are probably the one's that our lans come from God, and theirs is the Divine Plan. They believe society should be a model of "good" behavior in order to be blessed by a vengeful, yet just, God. These are the zealots and fanatics that are convinced that life on Earth cannot be deemed worthy unless we either convert and discipline those that resist their vision, or exterminate those that refuse to conform. And, there are a minority that merely want to live as comfortably as possible, enjoying the riches of this world in every way possible, and could careless about what happens to the rest of us. This group is easily controlled by the other two groups and they will align themselves with whichever side offers them the most pleasurable choices. These three groups, whether extraterrestrial, ethereal, or earthly, have opposing forces within their ranks. The Dark Lords have those that think they should be dark lords and continually work at rising to higher positions, and those that think they should not have to answer to anyone and can do whatever they like. The Angels have those that want to have more intervention, more Godly influence in the affairs of lower life-forms, and those that dictate a strict policy of non-interference. The New World Order has Patriot Groups that oppose all government, and those that think annihilation of the "unworthy" should be immediate, and they all have factions in-between. One thing they have in common is their interest in what will happen to humanity when the Transition begins, in earnest. The player's concern and motivation dictate the way in which they will interact with us during the transition period. The Angels are interested in the ethereal aspects of humans, that is their souls. The extraterrestrials are interested in the planetary assets, (a prime piece of real-estate), as well as the sentient creature bodies that occupy Earth, (our DNA). The Angels are interested in the souls that currently occupy the bodies living on Earth, the extraterrestrials are concerned with the souls that will inhabit future generations of human bodies. The New World Order wants to dominate and possess both the body and soul of humanity in order to guarantee comfort, survival, and a sense of importance. Over the last many decades, ETs, have been interacting with the human governments at many different levels. Our government has developed fantastic technology from what they have learned from these ETs. Some of the technology was discovered by studying crashed UFOs, and some was given to special interest groups by the ETs. Just as the conquistadors of our past, gave the natives of the lands which they invaded, advanced technology, so have aliens from other planets given our leaders such. The reason is simple. They wanted the cooperation of the natives in fulfilling their mission. This cooperation involved information and labor. And just as those conquerors offered the leaders these great "gifts" rather than the ordinary citizen, so the ETs sought out those in leadership to pass their "gifts" to. They knew that those in power had the ability to gain such cooperation and so they promised them more power and respect than those leaders could ever hope to gain without it. Consequently, there are underground bases manned by human and extraterrestrials, and world-wide power struggles going on in order to position the New World Order as the dominating political force on Earth.

The Conquest of Earth

In the beginning it is doubtful that those in power had any idea what the true motives of the alien visitors were. Originally, it was thought that these visitors merely wanted to explore, research and study humanity without interference and in exchange they gave government representatives advanced technology and briefings about galactic governments and order. Of course, anything they could not verify was probably a lie. These ETs were not benevolent anthropologist, but conquerors on a mission. They were sent by a governmental body that might be called "The Evil Empire". Their mission was to lay the ground work for the Empire to dominate and control Earth. Not only is the Earth rich in natural resources, but the sentient population was advanced enough to be useful. In effect, Earth was ripe for harvest. The mission was merely the final step in plans and strategies that spanned thousands of years. But, the Empire was not the final authority. At many levels, just like our government leaders of Earth, the Empire leaders think themselves the grand authorities, and rulers of all they see, but they are merely puppets, taking their inspiration and motivation from higher authority. Enter the Dark Lords. There was " a war in Heaven", and there was a division of the highest of the high in the ethereal realms. On one side we had those that believed and cooperated with the Creator. These are Angels and the spiritual hierarchy. On the other side were those that believed Creation was their laboratory and it was their privilege and right do with it as they desired. They questioned the existence of a unified creator as well as the Creator's right to govern. These are the Dark Lords, or the "dark side". Just as God, through his many dimensions of helpers created worlds and populated them with souls, so did these Dark Lords. They created planets, terra-formed them, and genetically engineered life-forms suitable for the environment. The only thing they could not create was "living" DNA. Just as our mythical Garden of Eden story tells of how Adam and Eve walked and talked with God, so those souls inhabiting bodies on "dark" planets walked and talked with Dark Lords. Over the eons of time, civilizations developed that were supervised and controlled by ethereal beings that answered to some Dark Lord. The same scenario was also part of the "Light". God created worlds, and sentient life but governed in a much different manner than the dark lords. From time to time, advanced civilizations would meet, and sometimes the planet would be taken over by dark forces, because domination and control of the Universe was the ultimate goal of the Dark Lords, whereas the development of advanced and free souls which would inhabit sentient creatures was the goal of the Light. Gods of the Light wanted to create a Utopian existence where souls in the other dimensions could exist in the physical by entering physical bodies and experience joy, and be responsible enough to be totally free to explore God's creations. Through life and death transition each of us has a soul that has grown to maturity, and now many of us are at a point where we can decide whether we want to exist in a universe controlled by the Light or the Dark. It is time to harvest the Earth. Whether you live or die, your intentions and inclination might very well decide whether you will have the choice of being reborn on a planet enslaved by the whims of the Dark Lords or one that offers an opportunity for Utopia. The Dark Lords have sent their dark emissaries in the physical through some of the ET civilizations such as the Greys, Reptoids, etc. and the Lords of Light have sent Pleaidians, Sirians, and others to be their physical counterpart. (I really don't know who's dark or light, I'm just guessing, here.) I believe the "dark side" is attempting to ally itself with the planetary governments because they are already lost in their insatiable desire for power and authority. The Light will attempt to ally itself with individuals first, in hopes we might either convince our governments to let go of their imagined need for self-importance and dominance, or be overthrown, thereby making way for a completely new way of living in a society. So, for those of you that think what is most important is spirituality, or the coming of ETs, or some grand technological and social achievement, think again. It is all the same thing. To ignore one in favor of the other is to invite ignorance at one level or the other. World domination has to do with spirituality at the highest levels and spiritual growth is about coping with ETs, and Gods on both sides. This is why the "others" are here. Some are here to harvest as many souls as possible so they will inhabit bodies on planets controlled by Dark Lords, and the others are here to harvest as many souls as possible to be borne on joyfully free, and beautiful planets. To be informed and aware, you should learn as much as you can about all three.... Angels, space ships, and the New World Order.

The "First Event"

The latest news suggests that the first milestone in the transition could happen as early as this April, with the reality of extraterrestrial civilizations and their presence known by everyone. At the latest, by the end of this year. It could start as mass landings of space crafts and subsequent announcements, or it could begin with the undeniable existence of an extraterrestrial object being seen in our skies, followed by eventual contact. Lately, the Ashtar Command as well as other channeled information say that contact is immanent. One Ashtar source, Armendues, has assured us that physical contact will take place no later than this April. Sheldon Nidle is claiming he is in contact with the Sirians and they intend to have a "modified" mass landing scenario unfold, other channelers that claim to be in contact with the "companion object " following Hale-Bopp say that there is a whole different scenario involving landings, etc., and finally Ed Dames, the remote viewer, claims the comet will release a deadly plant virus this spring that will destroy plant life beginning in the next year. And, last but not least, is a new channeler who intends to remain anonymous, has not been proven right, or wrong, yet, but has an interesting slant on the whole thing. Let's take a look at this one. I'll give this channel the name, "The Committee". They say that last year our secret government fired a particle beam weapon at the companion object, missed and hit the comet. Besides, hitting the comet, the beam was fired through a "cloud" of meteors and asteroids between here and where the comet was. Consequently, some of these meteors and asteroids, that were in stable orbits were hit, and slightly moved or disintegrated causing them to start a chain-reaction and to move into collision courses with many other orbiting meteors and asteroids. The powerful beam also hit the comet and exploded part of it into many pieces. Now, all these various pieces of space debris have the potential to collide with Earth. It is quite probable that some, of considerable size, will hit Earth this year, causing catastrophic destruction. Right now, the secret government ranks are in a great panic and fearful that they will be found to be responsible for the impending destruction. They are now attempting to cover-up what they have done by preparing us for an inevitable collision with falling debris by televising all kinds of different scenarios that can convince us that shows like, "Meteor" and "Asteroid" are not so far fetched. National Geographic even had a special, on TV, that showed the hundreds of asteroids in "near miss" orbits around Earth. This whole fiasco has put much of the secret government projects into chaos, although, their intention is still to deceive and lie to us to the very end. Sheldon Nidle, on the other hand, tries to promote a much rosier picture with mass landings happening "quite soon". However, I detect a disturbing message "between" the lines. As always, he claims that our Spiritual Hierarchy has approved the Sirian's new plan. (apparently, their last mass landing plan was ultimately rejected). The new plan calls for what he termed, "the cavern strategy". The Federation will land, and within only a few hours, will remove 30 major cities and relocate the occupants to underground facilities, while Federation scientist set up facilities in these locations in order to repair the Earth's biosphere. What I noticed in Sheldon's latest report is an underlying contempt for what humanity has done to its ecology, which justifies the relocation of the population to underground facilities. It also seems that they intend to relocate the entire surface population, not just those in the 30 chosen cities. This is where it gets quite bizarre. Nidle claims they have the technology to "beam" you and all your possessions, instantly, to any other location. Huge, subterranean places will be created to handle the surface population. They will be outfitted with holographic emitters that can exactly duplicate the surface environment in every way. (we're talking Star Trek here, folks) They intend to move us all underground, set it up so that it is just like the surface (we'll never notice the difference) and then go about their business of transforming Earth's surface into what they consider a paradise. He says all cities will be abandoned "in the year that follows the mass landings" (that year not specified) and that we should all feel privileged and excited, knowing that our planet will contain "a most important, showcase, galactic civilization"..... while we are stuck underground, dependent on alien technology to make it seem like everything is okay. Something is wrong here.......... Some of the 30 major cities are: Boston, New York, Miami, San Diego, LA, San Francisco, Portland, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Santiago, London, Paris Berlin, Moscow, Cairo, Capetown, Shanghai, Tokyo, Calcutta.

If any of this is to be believed, something of major significance should happen relatively soon. No matter which scenario transpires, I don't see anyway to avoid some major upheaval and chaos in the process. I mean, even if they can "beam" the president and family, along with the White House to a holographic underground city, what's he gonna do there? Doubtful he'll have many presidential duties and what will our daily routine amount to? If we are going to be hit with major catastrophes caused by asteroids, things will become such a mess that law and order will not be maintained. And, if plant life starts to die off, then you know things will fall apart very fast. Aside from Nidle's "cavern strategy" preparation for the other scenarios should involve determining where you want to be, and how you plan to survive on your own. Frankly, getting out of the cities is the only thing that makes any sense to me. At least, you should have a rural location you can go to, where you will be welcome, when the time comes. I advise making contacts in nearby rural areas if you don't know anyone in those areas now. It shouldn't be too hard to connect with a few people that are aware of some of these possibilities and make a contingency plan in the event something happens. Rather than store food and supplies at your city location, store it at your final destination and just have what you may need to evacuate when the time comes. I don't necessarily see a future Apocalypse, but I do see the probability that unconventional means of survival may be required to avoid the problems.

From 1997.....Just in case you had the idea that sighting are always foggy, fuzzy images made by weirdos who sleep in the woods....

Things are Heating Up in Australia and South America from UFO Roundup, Vol. 2, #8

UFO ROUNDUP Volume 2, Number 8 February 23, 1997
Editor: Joseph Trainor

For the past two weeks, Australia has been repeatedly visited by UFOs. Over 50 encounters have been reported since February 1, including two landings in the suburbs of Melbourne. The flap began Saturday, February 1, 1997 with an incident in Tasmania, the island off Australia's southern coast. A Glengarry family reported finding traces of a weird "bright yellow jelly slime" in their yard. At 9:45 p.m., in Broken Hill, New South Wales (N.S.W.), a city 750 kilometers (450 miles) west of Sydney, people reported "sighting two bright lights traveling from the northwest to the southeast." At 9:51 p.m., another man saw a glowing object fly from the southeast to the northwest, then reverse direction and "shoot off to the southeast." On Sunday, February 2, 1997, at 9:50 p.m., witnesses in Woori Yallock, Victoria (Vic.) reported "a bright white light" moving rapidly "from west to east in the northern sky, moving very fast, taking about 40 seconds" to reach the eastern horizon. On Monday, February 3, 1997, at 9:30 p.m., residents of Albury, N.S.W., 200 kilometers (120 miles) west of Canberra, spotted "a white light traveling from north to south in a zig zag fashion." Also that night, on Australia's east coast, "a large orange object" appeared over Port Macquarie, N.S.W. at 10 p.m. The UFO, which at first people took for a helicopter, "held position in the sky for about ten minutes. Before the object shot off and disappeared, several smaller yellow lights" emerged from the underside of the object. Port Macquarie is 250 kilometers (150 miles) north of Sydney. Then, after midnight, at 2:46 a.m. on Tuesday, February 4, 1997, people in Yass, N.S.W. saw "a bright orange illumination traveling across the sky." They estimated it to be "about 1/2 to 1/4 the size of the moon." The UFO flew away to the northwest. In Gosford, N.S.W., 60 kilometers (36 miles) north of Sydney, witnesses sighted "a large blue-white light" near the Moonie Bridge. The UFO was "close to the ground" and an estimated 200 to 300 feet (60 to 90 meters) in diameter. A half-hour past midnight on Wednesday, February 5, 1997, people reported "flashing lights" located in and around the stars in Orion's belt. At 9 p.m. on February 5, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) personnel at Bogan Gate, near Parkes, N.S.W., 275 kilometers (165 miles) west of Sydney, spotted a "white golden illumination" crossing the sky and heading west. Nearly a half-hour later, at 9:25 p.m., civilian eyewitnesses at Ngunnaiual reported "orange and flashing illuminations" in "an arch over Orion's belt." Several hours later, at 5:35 a.m. on Thursday, February 6, 1997, people in Cooma, N.S.W., a city west of the Gourock mountain range, 150 kilometers (90 miles) south of Canberra, spotted a UFO arrayed with lights heading east. By the time the sun had set February 6, the theater of UFO action had shifted to the sparsely-populated state of Western Australia (W.A.). At 7:30 p.m., people in Perth, the state capital, saw a hovering "blue-green tube- shaped object" in the day's fading daylight "before any star could be seen." (Editor's Note: Right now it's summer in the southern hemisphere, so the days are much longer in Australia and Chile.) The following night, Friday, February 7, 1997, the UFO action moved to the southern state of Victoria. At 9:20 p.m., a "spinning yellow fireball" zipped across the sky, heading west, over Bairnsdale, Vic., just above the southern coast's Ninety Mile Beach and about 200 kilometers (120 miles) east of Melbourne. At 9:25 p.m., people in Maffra, 60 kilometers (36 miles) west of Bairnsdale, sighted "a spinning yellow fireball" heading west towards Melbourne. At 11 p.m., people in Barwon Head, Vic. sighted a UFO they described as "a moving and flashing yellow- red fireball illumination with a (dark) triangular shape on top." The UFO traveled in a north-northwest direction at about 15 degrees above the horizon. The following night, Saturday, February 8, 1997, at 8:45 p.m., people in the Sydney suburbs of Oatley, Kogarah and Hurstville along the St. George's River saw "a green-to-yellow fireball with no tail traveling south in the eastern sky (about) 30 degrees above the horizon. There was no sound. The object suddenly stopped and hovered." Witnesses estimated the UFO to be the size of "an AAA battery held at arm's length." Four hours later, at 12:40 a.m. on Sunday, February 9, 1997, further up the east coast in Brisbane, witnesses reported "an orange illumination traveling at the speed of a fighter plane" in the eastern sky at 30 degrees above the horizon." The UFO was headed south and soon disappeared among the stars of the Southern Cross. On Sunday night, at 9:25 p.m., "a yellow-red fireball" was seen in St. Kilda, a bay front suburb on the south side of Melbourne. The UFO was headed north and "flying beneath the cloud cover" at an estimated speed of 800 kilometers per hour (480 mph). At 11:30 p.m., Queensland had its second sighting of the flap when a UFO flew over Sunnybank, a suburb 14 kilometers (9 miles) south of Brisbane. Witnesses described it as "a yellow-orange fireball" 10 to 15 miles away, moving in a 45-degree downward arc (top left to bottom right). Five hours later, on Monday, February 10, 1997, at 4 a.m., a UFO returned to Brisbane. It was described as "a blue and red oval-shaped illumination in the western sky (about) 30 degrees above the horizon. It appeared to be three times the size of the largest stars in the sky." The flap in Brisbane continued during the early morning hours of Tuesday, February 11, 1997. At 12:02 a.m., police in Brisbane received telephone reports of a huge UFO described as "a large red-pink illumination" near Mount Gravatt. The UFO hovered about 300 meters (1,000 feet) above the witnesses' heads for five minutes. At 2 a.m., "a series of lights in a triangular formation" were seen by Brisbane residents heading south toward the air base RAAF Amberley. The lights appeared to fly in either a V-formation or a /\-formation. On February 11, at 11:30 p.m., the city of Adelaide in South Australia (S.A.) reported its first sighting of the flap. The UFO was "a ball of fire that had red and blue associated with it." An hour and a half later, on Wednesday, February 12, 1997, at 1 a.m., people in Taree, N.S.W., a river port near the coast about 210 kilometers (125 miles) north of Sydney, reported seeing "a slow-moving orange-red fireball heading southwest." The UFO made no discernible sound. At 2:30 a.m., people again noticed "a fireball traveling in the sky." As the UFO passed over, TV sets suddenly switched on without being touched by owners. After the UFO left, the TV sets all shut off at once. After a 24-hour breather, the flap picked up again on Friday, February 14, 1997, this time in Victoria. At 11:15 p.m., residents of Craigieburn, a southern suburb of Melbourne, saw "a bright disc-shaped light" hovering above a paddock. Witnesses also saw what looked like automobile headlights in the paddock while the UFO hovered. Four or five seconds after the UFO flew away, the "headlights" winked out. A few hours later, on Saturday, February 15, 1997, at 4:40 a.m., residents of Parkinsville, another suburb of Melbourne, saw a star-sized "red-blue illumination in the southwest sky." Later the same day, in Duncraig, W.A., near Perth, people outdoors at 12 noon reported a weird "solar effect." Sunlight suddenly dimmed in an "eclipse-like effect" although the sky was perfectly clear. The effect lasted for approximately five seconds. No aircraft were seen or heard overhead. The phenomenon remains unexplained. Also on February 15, at 8:25 p.m., people in the Lewis mountain range of South Australia spotted "a cigar-shaped object traveling high in the sky from west to east. It appeared to be four times the size of a jumbo jet." Not a sound was heard from the object. One man took a color photograph of the UFO with his camera. Further east, in Eltham, Vic., a suburb south of Melbourne, residents reported three separate sightings of "light illumination" UFOs. The first was at 9:30 p.m., with the light headed southeast. The second was at 9:40 p.m. and headed east. The third and final UFO was at 9:45 p.m. and flew off to the southeast. At 11:25 p.m. the night of February 15, people in Quakers Hills, N.S.W., near Sydney, reported seeing "an oval orange-red illumination heading northwest towards Richmond." The UFO stopped and hovered on several occasions during its ten-minute flyover and "appeared the size of a grape held at arm's length." After midnight on Sunday, February 16, 1997, at 12:05 a.m. observers in Brisbane spotted "an orange- white illumination appearing in and out of clouds" just west of the seaside city. At 3:20 a.m., February 16, people in Adelaide saw "a bright white illumination traversing the sky, then (it) suddenly stopped. When it began moving again, it gave off a series of flashes." To some, the UFO "appeared as a cross shape with one light at each end." On Monday, February 17, 1997, people in Duncraig, W.A. reported a second weird "solar effect" identical to the one on February 15. A similar incident also took place in Duncraig on October 18, 1996. At 11:20 p.m. Monday night, February 17, "an extremely bright orange fireball" flew "from northeast to southeast right over" the Australian Space Agency base outside of Alice Springs, in the Northern Territory. The UFO's altitude was 20,000 to 30,000 feet and it was "three to four times larger than the stars." It was last seen heading for the Oorarginna mountain range. At 11:30 p.m., February 17, "a very large and bright orange illumination" appeared over Mildura, a city on the Murray River, about 450 kilometers (270 miles) northwest of Melbourne and 300 kilometers (180 miles) east-northeast of Adelaide. Witnesses reported a "large shape" poised above the orange glow. The UFO flew away to the northwest, stopping a few times before reaching the horizon. Tuesday, February 18, saw more sightings all around the island continent. At 1 a.m., in Western Australia, at Bull Creek, near Perth, witnesses saw "three or four lights cross the sky," making a strange rumbling noise. At 5:30 a.m., February 18, in Prospect, S.A. a "large white illumination traveling at (high) speed to the north" was seen. Its speed was estimated at 300 kilometers per hour (180 mph). Tuesday night, February 18, at 10:30 p.m., people in Warrandyte, Vic., near Melbourne, people saw "three large bright orange fireballs" flying "in a triangular formation for 5 to 10 minutes. The glows were described as being as "large as a grapefruit held in your hand at arm's length." Wednesday, February 19, 1997, saw the flap shift back to Sydney for one day. At 5:30 a.m., "three or four intensely bright orange ball illuminations" were seen rotating around each other as they crossed the sky over North Head. The UFOs were moving extremely fast. At 6:45 a.m., three large orange UFOs "with some burning coming from them" were seen over the suburb of Paddington. That morning, radio station 3MMM stunned its listeners by reporting a scorched crop circle in a paddock on the outskirts of Werribee, a suburb southwest of Melbourne. The circle was seen from the air by a private pilot at 6:30 a.m., who radioed the tower. The scene was investigated by Melbourne ufologist Peter Wanliss, who reported, "It was about 30 feet (10 meters) across with the grass flattened in a clockwise direction. The centre part seemed very symmetrical. Just within the perimeter of the circle were six circular indentations, each about a foot (0.3 meters) across and four inches (10 centimeters) deep. These were also located in exact symmetrical locations around the circle. The bottom of each hole was slightly parabolic and bore a cross imprint that was impressed further in." However, Wanliss said he believes the circle to be a hoax. He noted that the "brown burn marks appear to have been painted on" and "the imprints looked dug out rather than 'pressed' by a solid weight." At 3:45 p.m., a man in Nicholson, East Gippsland, Vic. reported a "scorched earth circle" similar to the one in Werribee. There are still no reports on this site as of February 23, 1997. At 9:20 p.m., February 19, people in Geelong, Vic., a city on Port Phillip Bay 45 kilometers (27 miles) southwest of Melbourne, reported seeing a large "banana-shaped or crescent orange illuminated object" traveling in a northwesterly direction, headed for Ballarat. At 9:45 p.m., February 19, "five bright yellow- white lights" crossed the sky over Adelaide. Three lights flew in a triangular formation, while the other two smaller lights flew parallel to the triangle. In the night's second event, one light flew away to the north, the other to the south. Then the lights turned, crossed each other's path and disappeared. At 9:10 p.m., "a very large glowing illumination" was seen in the sky over Mount Barker, 30 kilometers (18 miles) south of Adelaide. At 9:30 p.m., two UFOs visited Annandale, a suburb of Sydney, heading west. They were described as flattened discs, something like a drummer's cymbals. At 11:20 p.m. a group of "three white lights" were seen speeding over Frankston, Vic., a port on the eastern shore of Port Phillip Bay, 35 kilometers (21 miles) southeast of Melbourne. They flew at an altitude of 300 to 400 meters (1,000 to 1,320 feet). Ten minutes later, at 11:30 p.m., "a large yellow white light" flew over Frankston, heading due west.

Subject: Close Encounters/Sightings from CHILE

Hi all, new UFO sightings have been taking place here in CHILE in the last few days, that are very interesting. There have been many small sightings of UFOs and Fire Balls throughout Chile (North to South, mostly South region witch is by the way, more populated too). The most important were two Close Encounters that took place last weekend...

First Case : Feb. 13, 1997. Maybe around 11:30 P.M

A women who lives in the South area of Santiago called "Gran Avenida, sector el LLANO" was in bed trying to go to sleep (her husband works at night, so she was alone with her two small children) when she heard a "SSSSSHHHHH" sound (like when the TV is on without any signal), so she raised her head and looked at the TV set (end of the room) and was shocked to find a small person, 1.55 or 1.60 meters,(about 5 feet) tall wearing a tight suite and helmet. The helmet had a visor but she could see no eyes. This being was wearing also a backpack that was connected to the helmet by two houses (one over each shoulder). She was scared to death. So she grabbed both of her kids (sleep in the same room) and stayed there just watching. This being never took his eyes off her (followed her with head movements). He the walked a few steps, heard the "SSSSSSHHHHH" sound again and the being disappeared through the wall leaving his silhouette (on the wall) that lasted for about two minutes. She called her husband and left her house. She hasn't been back since that night. Now she's with her parents. AION (UFO group) is analyzing the house looking for any possible evidence. UFO's were seen days before and after this encounter in the near by areas. Second Case : Feb., 16, 1997 - 4:30/5:00 A.M. This case developed at a location called "Lago Rapel" (Rapel Lake) that's about 3 hours from Santiago (South-East). Two kids (14 and 16 years old) were heading home after a party, they soon found out that they were being followed by a UFO, so they hurried to get home fast. Once they got home they saw that the UFO was still out there, so they went into the house and woke up their father (who thought that they were joking) and dragged him out. To their surprise, the UFO was LANDED ON THE GROUND and a small being was standing out. The being was about 1.50 meters tall, big and bald head (no description about the eyes) and was wearing a bluish suite. All of them got scared and ran to hide until it was gone. UFO's and Fire Balls have been seen in this area, including an active member of AION. They will be traveling to see the marks left by the landing... Rodrigo Fuenzalida (President of AION) told me that UFO sightings have not really increased much, instead people are talking more about their sightings and experiences. But what has him really puzzled is that the sightings are longer. They (UFO/Fire Balls) are exposing themselves for longer periods of time (1 to 2 hours) with many witnesses. A very interesting case took place at a location called "CHIVILINGO" (6th region of Chile, South of Santiago) on Feb. 16, 1997 around 12:30 P.M. A well known M.D. (Doctor), with many other witnesses saw the following and incredible "UFO METAMORPHOSIS". The following sighting lasted no longer than 2 minutes. First saw what seemed to be an elongated cloud 1. it split into two cigar shape UFO's 2. they come together again making cigar shape 3. now they split into FOUR small cigar shape UFO's 4. they manuver turning into a solid triangle shape UFO 5. the triangle UFO makes some horizontal manuvers 6. changes into a cigar shape (one) 7. splits again into two cigar shape UFO's 8. they give the impression of starting to inflate 9. now the two objects become FOUR cigar shape UFO's 10. they speed away.... This was seen by many witnesses and there maybe some pictures taken by a truck driver... Well, that's all for now, keep you informed of any new events...
