1999 UFO Sightings

In most UFO cases the story is the same. People see an object in the sky they can't explain. They report it but there's no explanation for what they saw. The only conclusion they are left with is an Unidentified Flying Object. Here are a few reports of UFOs that were spotted during 1999.

Flying Coffin

On March 10th, construction workers were putting up a new primary school in the village of Malawi, southern Africa, when they spotted a rectangular UFO. An object resembling a coffin flew over their houses just after 9 pm. A store clerk at the project Makaika told Malawi News Agency (MANA) that at exactly 9 pm they heard a heavy wind blowing over their houses. "We thought it was a storm but when we went out, we saw a black coffin cruising past our rooftops," the clerk told MANA. Who goes outside in the middle of a storm?

Something Fishy

Several fishermen were able to videotape a UFO from their boat on Sunday, November 7th. Tony Bell and his fishing buddies were just off the New South Wales coast, Australia when they saw the dome-shaped object. "This thing just appeared. It was 100 to 150 feet (30 to 45 meters) up in the sky,' said Tony. The object was a shiny bright orange and seemed to be heading towards them and then further away and then closer. The videotape was sent to a privately run National Space Center where they said it was worth looking at.

Great Balls of Fire

It seems that not all UFOs are bright shiny objects. On Tuesday, November 9th, a fireball flew over DeLand, Florida. News stories reported a "blue ball of fire that streaked across the sky above Volusia Country that has residents wondering whether the sight was something out of this world." Chet Jones saw the ball of flames and was willing to bet it was a UFO. "I believe it is probable. I know they exist," he said.

A witness called the sheriff's office and deputies, police officers and a sheriff's helicopter searched for over an hour but came up empty handed. The local National Weather Service reported nothing unusual that night. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) tower in Daytona Beach and the FAA Regional Office in Atlanta, Georgia didn't spot anything either. "If a pilot would have seen it, they would have reported it," said a FAA spokesperson. Astronomers think it might have been a bolide meteor - these appear to be falling but are simply crossing the horizon. However, according to people who saw the fireball, it wasn't falling.

What do you think? Are all UFOs bright shiny objects that fly in the sky? Is there a simple explanation for every one of these encounters? Take our poll and see what others think.

you can be fairly certain of your orientation at about any age around thirteen, or younger, too, maybe, but i do think that you'd need a more extensive understanding of sexuality before you're actually sure? your own sexuality and of sexuality in general. i mean, there is this misconception about sga orientations being s*x-central, which isn't true, since a young kid can have crushes on the same gender without even knowing about s*x at all in the first place. still, this is the difference between having an idea of your orientation and being certain of it (even if you may not be certain for many years after adolescence, too. it's not obligatory to figure it out before 20 or something). and it's really never too young for anybody to realize and acknowledge their attraction towards the same gender, it's just a matter of, will that attraction last for long enough after that for you to come out as the respective orientation? it's not just that you, as a girl, may be attracted to girls and boys now and later may just be attracted to boys--it could go totally the other way and find that you actually are only attracted to girls, but that only depends on your specific case and i don't know the details. it's fine to experiment with these labels i guess, but it's fair to say that many people will stop taking you seriously once you come out twice, thrice or more times as different things, because you hadn't thought it through properly. not to say that a single move like this that you do at thirteen will prove to be fatal or anything, though, if you live in a community that wouldn't put you at actual danger upon coming out, that is. you don't have to even choose a label if in the end you're not really sure, there shouldn't be pressure to do so. just go with something general and you'll get the point across. also keep in mind that 'coming out' isn't just a one time thing, and it's actually a continuous thing. sexuality won't come up in every discussion and you won't just go around yelling 'i'm gay!' around the whole city or something, you'll need to tell a lot of new people about it if you choose to and it will keep coming up. you can be out at school, but not at home. you can be out with friends, but not with the whole class. etc.  coming out isn't even such an important aspect in the first place if you ask me and it's a bonus pressure if you will. coming out will eventually come naturally when you get a same-gender partner and all, anyway, if you don't want to hide it forever or anything. good luck with that choice (in case i'm not too late with this reply, in which case good luck to whoever might be reading this for their own issue).
