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.

I'm sad to see you leaving so soon, especially because we have only been friends for a little while.  I didn't know your birthday was coming up so quickly, or that you were going to be 18! I have lots of things to say about you (all good things), but it'll be hard to name them all. I just want you to know that it's not about how long you've been here, it's about the memories that last a lifetime. I hope you have a happy birthday and a great trip!

" In the vast, deep forest of Hyrule… long have I served as the guardian spirit… I am known as the Deku Tree. The children of the forest, the Kokiri, live here with me. Each Kokiri has his or her own guardian fairy. However, there is one boy who does not have a fairy…. " *** In his tree-trunk home, the boy was tossing and turning on his little cot. The circular room was dark; it was nighttime. And, as it was nighttime again, his young mind was plunged into the same nightmare again.... Hooves, galloping in a rapid staccato, like a myriad of drums being pounded, raced across a dark path lit on either side by fire as tall as the boy. But they only reached the shoulders of the horse as dark as midnight, its master clothed in cloth and armor just as dark. But that wasn't what was scary... it was the aura of evil practically dripping off the man, with his fiery hair and dark, nearly-green skin.... And how real he felt. *** "...Navi... Navi, where art thou? Come hither...." Back in my clearing, a cyan ball of light entered my line of sight, gently bobbing a few feet off of the ground. A pair of barely visible clear wings were the only indicator that she was facing me. Compared to my massive size, she was almost a speck. " Oh, Navi the fairy... listen to my words, the words of the Deku Tree.... Dost thou sense it? The climate of evil descending upon this realm.... Malevolent forces even now are mustering to attack our land of Hyrule.... For so long, the Kokiri Forest, the source of life, has stood a barrier, deterring outsiders and maintaining the order of the world.... But, before this tremendous evil power, my power is as nothing.... It seems the time has come for the boy without a fairy to begin his journey... the youth whose destiny it is to lead Hyrule to the path of justice and truth.... Navi, go now! Find our young friend and guide him to me... I do not Have much time left. Fly, Navi, fly! The fate of the forest--nay, the world--depends upon thee. "
