News and Reviews.
Hello again everybody, welcome to another News and Reviews column, this month I read a book by Colm A Kelleher and George Knapp called “HUNT FOR THE SKINWALKER” which I will share with you all.
I have just finished reading the book “Hunt for the Skinwalker” by Colm A. Kelleher and George Knapp. This book is about a series of events and unexplained phenomenon that takes place on a ranch in Utah. It also includes follow-up data from scientific studies performed by the NIDS team (National Institute for Discovery Science) while on the ranch.
The book is well set out, written in a fashion that is easy to understand, making sure you have an understanding of the events taking place, including how it is seen from the eyes of the witnesses and of the NIDS Team in great detail. Hunt for the Skinwalker goes straight into action, taking you there to the property beginning with a bizarre; yet intriguing event with an appearance of a wolf like creature that has just taken place, making you feel all along like you are actually there. You get to know a little about the family living on the ranch, and learn all about their experiences from magnetic fields that are emitted from invisible objects, Unidentified Flying Objects right down to Mutilated and missing cattle, even glowing orbs of light witnessed by the property owners and members of the NIDS Team.

Together these two professional people have put together fantastic book writing about the experiences and haunting mysteries they have witnessed firsthand. The chapters follow each other in a logical order, giving you history on some of the people involved with the ranch Phenomenon, the area and how some of the history came about. Everything is written in excellent detail and is also easy to follow through and understand, leaving you wanting to know more and more even before you get to the next page! A must read book even if you are not into UFO/Paranormal phenomenon. This book is also available to order through the Ufologist Magazine.
Beginning in the early 1980's many countries, including Australia, have experienced mass-sightings of triangle UFOs, all with similar characteristics such as shape, sound, lighting and flight patterns. Seen with increasing frequency, several excellent photos and videos have been taken of these strange craft. Nevertheless, despite these photos, no good explanation has yet surfaced to account the nature of these remarkable UFOs.
Many UFO researchers are certain that the flying triangles represent proof that the Earth is being visited by extraterrestrials. While the other side of the controversy says that these UFOs are, in fact, top secret, black budget military aircraft using technology that is years ahead of civilian science.
All of the reports identified a large object flying at low altitudes. The craft was of a flat, triangular shape, with lights underneath. This giant craft was completely silent as it slowly, brazenly, moved across the landscape of Belgium. There was free sharing of information as the Belgian populace tracked this craft as it moved from the town of Liege to the border of the Netherlands and Germany.
This first startling sighting would evolve into a wave over the next several months. On two occasions, a pair of F-16 fighters chased the mysterious object, but to no avail. On March 30, 1990, a frantic call to military headquarters came from a Belgian national police Captain. He reported a giant flying triangle passing over, and simultaneously two ground radar stations were reporting an object of unknown origin on their screens. One of these bases was NATO controlled near the city of Glons, southeast of Brussels. After contacting other radar facilities, they learned that at least four other stations were also reporting the object on their screens. The object was moving across their screens slowly, and failed to send a transponder signal to identify itself.
Two F-16s were ordered to intercept and identify the phenomena, and one of the jet's radars was able to lock onto the object. The pilot reported that only a few seconds after locking on the target the object began to pick up speed, quickly moving out of radar range. An hour- long chase ensued, during which time the F-
16s picked up the strange craft's signal two additional times, only to see it fade from view.
The extraordinary sightings continued for months as the triangular invader was witnessed more than 1,000 times, both day and night. The object dipped low enough to easily be seen with the naked eye, and the event became one of the biggest stories in the Belgian media.

A RECENT PHENOMENON ?
In 1933, Italian leader Benito Mussolini allegedly formed a top secret UFO study group to investigate a flap of flying triangle UFOs being sighted all over Italy at the time. Active until 1940, the Italian government organization compiled many documents and pictures that were kept secret.
Italian TV station RAI DUE interviewed two Italian ufologists who exhibited two 1933 teletype messages in which Mussolini ordered censorship of any information relating to "possible appearance of crafts of unknown origin or unknown phenomena-especially he notes that he forbids the spreading of information about some kind of triangle-shaped UFO landing near Milano."
Another interesting report dated from September 1952 concerned the sighting of triangular-shaped UFOs seen during a NATO exercise called "Mainbrace." Barely one day into the exercise, Naval personnel on board ships off the coast of Ireland filed at least two reports of encounters with triangle-shaped UFOs. The first such encounter involved what was referred to as a "blue/green triangle" which was observed flying over the sea at a speed of 1,500 miles per hour; while later that same day, a triangular formation of lights emitting a "white light exhaust" was seen in the same vicinity.
These early reports can only lead us to believe that at least some of the triangle-shaped UFOs cannot be secret aircraft of earthly origin. The technology possessed by most countries before and after WW II would preclude the possibility of such sightings being the result of secret testing of military aircraft.
It would be irresponsible to completely rule out that at least some recent black triangle UFOs sightings are the result of secret, manmade aircraft using technology not yet known to civilian science. But considering the history of triangle-shaped UFO sightings, we cannot escape the conclusion that there is a mystery in our skies that so far has evaded easy explanations.
