    By Ted Bonnitt on March 29th, 2014

    A review of witness reports submitted during March to two major public reporting agencies, The National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) and the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) indicate that sightings of triangle shape UFOs are a daily occurrence.

    Of the more than 40 sightings reported in March thus far, triangle UFOs were spotted in 19 states, Canada and the UK. The phenomenon was likely seen across the planet in similar concentrations, but these two reporting agencies primarily serve the Unites States, and less ...

  • Beatle John Lennon's close encounter with a UFO

    By Ted Bonnitt on March 29th, 2014

    In many ways, John Lennon was an ideal UFO witness.

    At the time of his 1974 sighting the ex-Beatle was world famous, adored as a singer/songwriter and respected as an uncompromising artist.

    He had nothing to gain but more crazy fans by claiming to have a close encounter with a UFO, especially at a time when he was in hot water with U.S. authorities and threatened with deportation.

    His account was supported by his companion at the time, May Pang, who witnessed the UFO with him.  Pang has also spoken in detail about what they saw on the ...

  • Hundreds of light orbs reported over Arizona

    By Ted Bonnitt on March 11th, 2014

    Light orbs are a common type of UFO sighting. They are seen primarily at night, likely because they are far more visible in a dark sky than in broad daylight, though the phenomenon is seen by witnesses at all hours of the day. 

    Light orbs are reportedly sen in a variety of colors, most commonly as white, orange, red and gold.  They are often repeatedly spotted over the same areas. 

    They appear to be under intelligent control and have been photographed being pursued by military helicopters over crop circles in the UK. One particular hill in the Wiltshire region of ...

  • Opinion- MUFON's rash dismissal of recent OC orb sightings raises questions

    By Ted Bonnitt on March 4th, 2014

    A leading MUFON investigator has declared that ALL recent reports about mysterious light orbs being pursued by helicopters over Orange County (OC), are nothing more than military exercises and beleaguered police air patrols being hassled by pranksters launching sky lanterns.

    The senior investigator's statement, published today as "breaking news" by MUFON was not backed by any evidence or investigation by the grass roots UFO research organization.

    Cinde Costello, who carries the title of Southern California Chief Investigator for the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), where the sightings occurred, concluded that the sightings appear to be a combination of military training ...

  • "Unknown" triangle UFO photographed

    By Ted Bonnitt on March 3rd, 2014

    Triangle shaped flying objects are the most commonly reported UFOs. The large craft have been sighted for decades, with some ancient accounts, as well.

    Witness descriptions of the objects remain the same over the years, which is curious to our frame of reference, in that they don't seem to get noticeable design updates over the years like man-made aircraft.

    Despite frequent sighting reports, few photographs surface of the craft, chiefly because they are usually spotted at night and their grey-black appearance is difficult for cameras to capture in a dark sky.

    A witness in Greenville, South Carolina, was driving ...

    By Ted Bonnitt on March 1st, 2014


    Update: March 3, 2014--  A fifth witness report has been filed in the recent "OC Orb Flap" over Orange County, CA.
