Strange Lights, Atmosphereic Conditions over Australia/New Zealand 26th January 2001
Reports were flooding into local radio stations last night here in New Zealand of strange lights flashing in the sky. The reports I heard personally, came in from Rotorua, Dunedin, Christchurch & Invercargill (both North and South Island). All reports stated that bright objects were seeing flying through the sky which was accompanied by
a brilliant lightshow. The reports stated that shafts of flashing light/lightening strikes were occuring approxmately every 15 seconds and the light was coming from the ground up. All callers reported that the sky had turned a very strange silver colour and one caller who happened to be driving a tanker load full of petrol in Southland
stated that he felt like getting the hell out of the tanker and leaving it in the middle of the highway (guess the lightening was a little too
close for comfort ;)
Last night while this was occuring in New Zealand the following email arrived from a member of my discussion group who lives in Australia reported this:
It is 10:10 pm here in Melbourne on 26/1/01 and I have just come in with the family (my wife, youngest son & I) from having a spa for the last hour.
At 9:15 pm our chatter was interrupted by a sonic roar that was very audible across the spa filter motor. As we looked up we saw a flame racing across the sky from East to West that was immense in size. The flame was visible for about 3-5 seconds I guess (it felt very much longer than that) before it disappeared. Upon recollecting this with my family the follopwing facts emerge which I want to record before memory fades & facts become dodgy in my mind.
1. The flame was travelling from around 260-270 degrees west to 80-90 degrees east.
2. The width of the flame was almost the size of the width of my thumb.
3. The length of the flame was between 6-9 degrees of the sky.
4. The flame seemed to shudder as it progressed across the arc of the sky. It seemed like when the space shuttle takes off.
5. The sonic boom that accompanied the flame was very low hertz.
6. The boom had the same reverb quality as the flame seemed to visibly indicate.
7. We did not see where the flame originated (where in the arc of the sky it appeared), but when we saw it, after we heard it, it was about 30 degrees up in the sky.
8. The flame went out at about 10 degrees from being directly overhead (meridian).
9. We heard the boom fading for the next 20 seconds & then heard sounds like rolling thunder every now & again for the next 3 minutes.
My speculation is as follows:
I do not know whether this is an object that we saw upon entry into the atmosphere or an object that hit the atmosphere & bounced off back into space.
I suspect that this was a large size piece of space junk or an asteroid of many times normal proportions. I have seen the normal type asteroids during the Leonids etc. but they were only thin pencil marks compared to the line of a super thick marking pen.
The object disapeared into the direction of Sydney & if it did enter & crash I am sure we will hear more about this.
I guess I'll hear more about this as further reports come in from last night.
CHUPACABRAS ATTACK A FAMILY'S HOME IN CALAMA
Four Chupacabras attacked a family's home in a rural
district of Calama, Chile early Friday morning,
January 19, 2001, killing six chickens and a rooster.
"A family from the barrio O'Higgins (neighborhood) lived
through several frightening hours after having encountered
four very strange beasts in their backyard. Neighbors are fearful
that it could represent a mass attack by so-called
"The affected parties, who live in Calle Sargento
Aldea 3445 (street) were still unable to convince themselves
(of the reality--S.C.) of this singular episode in their lives."
The house's owner, Elena W., "was awakened by the
of her chickens were kept in a cage in her backyard.. But there
were no words to describe her astonishment when she went
out to see what was going on and found herself facing four
creatures working in unison to open the birdcage."
"'At first I thought they were dogs, although I was
startled by the fact that they were larger and
more hairy,'" she said.
She said she did nothing at first but merely stared at
in which two of the beings worked to open the gate 'while the others
watched, as if trained
or had thought patterns similar to humans.'"
"She remarked that, overcoming her fear, she grabbed a club
and tried to scatter them away, but the animals' attitude left her petrified.
They passed by
her so quickly 'that O didn't see them running, I only felt the wind left
in their wake as they went past my side.'"
Sra. W. said, "she screamed for her husband to help her, He ran out of
the house and after the creatures but he couldn't find any trace of the
immense animals when he got to the end of the street. ."
"'It was all so strange, as if the critters had vanished into thin air
or had been teleported to a different location,'" Sr. W. said.
""After the commotion, the entire family investigated the henhouse and
found six dead chickens and one dead rooster, all of which bore the telltale
marks of the mythic Chupacabras."
"The birds were not devoured but they were left dry
(drained of blood--J.T.) with a single wound under the wings. Furthermore,
the pen was well-secured and, to judge from the creatures' size, they would
have brought the whole structure crashing down if they'd tried to put a foot
on the roof,:
"She claimed that at 3:30 a.m. the chickens were still alive 'because
the rooster crowed and we were watching movies until four o'clock in the
morning, and we still can't explain how the creatures got into the
enclosure,'" Sra. W. said.
, "then killed the birds noiselessly and then abandoned the premises.
It could only be that they flew.'"
"But the strangest thing for the family was that their three guard dogs
were not even stirred by the presence of the four intruders in the backyard.
'Only when I screamed for my husband did the oldest of the digs wake up to
defend me, without the poor thing being able to strike
at anything.'" (See the Chilean newspaper La Estrella del Lia for January
20, 2001, "Strange animals stage massive attack." Muchas gracias a Scott

LUMINOUS SAUCER CAUSES A BLACKOUT IN BRAZIL
Four seaside cities in southern Brazil suffered a massive power blackout
on Thursday night, January 11m 2001 when a luminous saucer overflew the area.
All electrical power was lost in the communities of Santos, Cubatao, Sao
Vicente and Praia Grande Picaras. All are located along Brazil's South
just southeast of Sao Paulo, which is the largest city in South America.
"Following a sudden and unexplained power failure in the region, UFOs
were seen over Cubatao and Santos and also in Sao Vicente and on
the beach in Praia Grande Picaras. The UFOs remained in view for
approximately 20 minutes. The situation took place at about 3:30 a.m."
"The blackout was lifted technicians and power line workers restored
electricity to the area." Brazil's "Policia Militar were contacted by
several Brazilian ufologists but gave no explanation for the sightings or the
According to Sra. Carmina Moura de Freitas, "My daughter and her friends
were having a party on the beach party on the beach" at Praia Grande Picaras
"when the lights all went out. While they were listening to the
(battery-powered) radio, they heard a burst of static. They looked up and saw
a glowing disc flying out to sea," heading southeast towards the South
Ocean. (Muito obrigado aos Visitantes Cosmicas e tambem Sra. de Freitas por
TRIANGULAR UFO HOVERS OVER THE ISLE OF MAN
On Friday, January 19, 1001, at 4:20 p.m., "a large object had been seen
above Snaefell mountain,
on the north side of the Isle of Man in the Irish Sea.
"A triangular UFO was observed hovering near a (BBC) radio mast at the
summit" of Snaefell. Man is a small island west of Wales in UK.
"The police have searched but they have no clues to the mystery centered
on the summit of Snaefell mountain."
"A full search, including the RAF, IOM (Isle of Man--J.T.) Coastguard,
Fire services, Civil Defence and IOM Constabulary, has failed to find any
trace of evidence following reports of an aircraft at the top of the
mountain. The police received reports yesterday of a large
object had been seen above Snaefell."
"The reports said that it appeared to strike the large communications
mast on the summit. An immediate search of the area, including a helicopter
from RAF Valley," an air base in Anglesey, Wales, UK, "failed to find any
trace of an accident but continued with the search until 11:10 p.m."
"The police still have no clue as to what it was that had been reported
to hit the mast and are appealing to anybody who may have been around
Snaefell at 4:20 p.m. yesterday who may have seen anything unusual on the
northern side of the island."
UFO Roundup is presently trying to track down an Isle of Man resident
who reportedly shot three to four minutes of video footage of the mystery
object with his camcorder. The footage reportedly shows a dark triangular
object with three red lights, one at each corner, hovering above the tall
radio mast. More information will be reported as it becomes available. (Many

MYSTERIOUS SKY BOOM JOLTS ASHTABULA, OHIO
"Residents are still wondering what caused a boisterous boom
accompanied by a quivering of the ground late Friday," January 19, 2001,
"evening. Police and fire dispatchers fielded several calls from folks in
Saybrook and Ashtabula Townships and in Ashtabula (population 22,000) who
felt the unexplainable tremor around 9:13 p.m. and wanted to know what was
"The two-to-three-second vibration--similar to what one might experience
in an explosion--occurred just minutes before a gas main on East 27th Street
in Ashtabula Township was reported by an Ohio-American Water crew using a
backhoe to fix a water line (pipe--J.T.) leak."
"Officials say the two incidents are unrelated."
"'The seismographic site did report some kind of blip,' Ed Semppi,
director of the Ashtabula County Emergency Management Agency said, 'But
there's no reason as to what happened yet.'"
"Semppi received a call from an Ashtabula County Sheriff's Office
stating that officials from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (DNR)
Geologic Survey in Columbus had noticed a tremor-like vibration at their
Jefferson-based seismographic site."
"Three other local seismographic sites, located, located at Lakeland
Community College in Kirtland; Lake Erie College in Painseville; and the
Museum of Natural History in Cleveland, had no indication of any seismic
activity. 'It could have been in the lake close to our site, not close to
their sites,' Stemppi said."
Ashtabula is on Ohio Route 20 approximately 91 miles (145 kilometers)
east of Cleveland. (See the Ashtabula Star-Beacon for January 21, 2001,
"Tremble still a mystery." Many thanks to Gerry Lovell for this newspaper
(Editor's Comment: Ashtabula was the scene of several UFO sightings during
the year 2000. It sounds as if there was a saucer lying on the bottom of
Lake Erie just offshore.)
DARK OBLONG UFO SEEN IN VANDERBILT, PENNSYLVANIA
On Thursday evening, January 18, 2001, Matthew I. was outdoors in his
hometown of Vanderbilt Pennsylvania when he saw an unusual object in the
night sky, "approaching from the northwest."
"We saw lights, different colored, which appeared to be together" around
the object. "They flew really close to each other. I also got it on film.
The lights were round and blinking with white, red, yellow, blue and green.
I watched it move around" for a few minutes "before
it left." (Email Form Report)
