The Fox-13 TV
10PM news report of September 7th was perhaps the
best late prime-time news story broadcast in recent
memory concerning a UFO sighting. The two news anchors
appeared serious and concerned, presenting all sides
of the sighting. However, the story as a whole left
the viewer somewhat confused and drew a questionable
conclusion saying it was "the rocket's red glare."
Definitely not so if you review the video.
debris or space junk reentering and burning up in the
atmosphere do not have multi-colored signal lights flashing,
hover, then go straight up, nor are triangular-shaped,
level-flying objects. Numerous explanations have been given
that the sightings must be an item from NORAD's satellite
"predicted debris" catalog list. The Tampa video appears to be
an object that is under intelligent control, not a burning
hunk of space junk.
plausible explanation is whoever or whatever is flying these
triangular craft KNOW about the falling rocket booster and
satellite debris schedules and are using them as windows of
opportunity for their flight maneuvers. This would explain the
multiple sightings and the irreconcilable discrepancies in the
Fox-13 video tape is much more clearer than the Avi and
RealPlay conversions on this page. However, the characteristic
triangular shape is evident even in the conversion copies to
AVI and REAL format. You must not simply look at a "flat
picture" but perceive the subtle highlights and linear
perspective of the object in the video as it moves with the
brighter areas. Watch the 2 lights on the left side of the
object very carefully.
and a video clip were selected from a portion of the
home video taken by John Vye on the morning of September
7th. The video was shot in the early morning, just
before sunrise. The sky at the time of the event was
The craft displays distinctive
lights, especially at the corners, which reflect off its
metallic-looking frame revealing its symmetrical, triangular
shape. The upper surface area appears to be a structural
matrix of some kind. If you view the video, you will clearly
see 2 lights blinking-- alternating red, white, green and
amber on the left wing section, and a larger white light
pulsate on the front of the object. The craft seems to be
moving from left to right.
I'm amazed how such a sighting
could be mistaken for a rocket booster re-entering the
atmosphere! The craft was observed to be moving very slowly.
It tilts and reorients itself. This is not what a falling
rocket booster does! The news report is rife with
disinformation and confusion. It is truly frightening how this
type of craft can flaunt itself in our skies and be explained
away and dismissed so easily. This video speaks for

video tape of the FOX-13 Tampa September 7th news report
arrived today. Seeing it again confirmed my original
impression when I first saw the news broadcast that evening.
It is definitely NOT a disintegrating rocket booster or a
meteor!! The video clearly shows a closeup of a gun-metal-gray
"V," triangular or wedge-shaped craft. It is perhaps the best
video ever taken of this type of sighting. It is not a bright
light or a flash across the sky. It's an unbelievable film of
a huge craft that is slow moving and stealthy. It looks like a
surveillance type of UFO or Black Project plane.

'Russian Boosters' Again!!
anyone happen to catch the report Tuesday, Sept 7 on FOX TV
News? Many people in the Tampa, Florida area (Manatee County)
witnessed a sighting which was explained by "officials" here
as a Russian booster rocket falling into the Gulf after a
satellite launch. They showed a video of the UFO and it looked
like a triangular type UFO, not a simple piece of space junk!
(I suppose Russian rocket booster debris falling over the
continental US near populated areas is nothing to worry about
to the report, said at one point during the sighting
the UFO hovered motionless and then ascended rapidly
out of view. I have requested a transcript of the
news report and video from FOX 13 News. Not certain
when it will be forthcoming. Will post more information
when it becomes available.
But I don't buy this
explanation ; (
like these "booster" rockets are a convenient cover
story. It used to be meteors, temperature inversions,
swamp gas, or the planet Venus. Now it's Russian boosters.
If this is true, why aren't our local civil defense
authorities concerned about warning people in populated
areas on falling booster tonnage? And why are "Russian"
boosters all of a sudden falling across US territory??
That last "booster" (item # 25761) which fell over
the Western part of the country wasn't even in NORADS
Those "official" mainstream newspaper stories
seem cut from the same mold. An explanation given by a MUFON
director about a "catalog part number" didn't check out on the
NORAD list (see the above diligently researched example).
Where is the "proof" of their report? Our present-day news
coverage amounts to nothing more than an insult to our
intelligence and is a systematic and insidious coverup. In
plain English, a lie. A controlled disinformation tactic
delivered by the media to dissuade the general public from
becoming too concerned about something which the government
wants to keep a lid on for whatever reason. We do have
the right to demand the truth about what the hell is going on
in our skies!
