webcam that sends images of the U.S. Capitol area over the Web reportedly

hours of Feb. 10, 2005. The image was taken between 3:15 and 3:30 a.m. EST.

reportedly operated by the National Park Service and is located at the
Netherlands Carillon, on the Virginia shore of the Potomac River, bordering
the northern end of Arlington National Cemetery and adjacent to the United
States Marine Corps War Memorial. The camera faces east.
The image shows an
apparently large, flat, metallic-appearing object with the Washington
Monument, Lincoln Memorial and U.S. Capitol building in the background.

international developments, science, culture, economics, military topics and
A researcher with
IntelDesk.com reported that he spotted the image on the webcam feed at around
3:15 a.m. EST. After making inquiries, the researcher determined that other
people had also observed the image on the same webcam feed. Subsequently,
IntelDesk.com posted the images on their site. The IntelDesk.com researcher
contacted National Park Service police as well as the National UFO Reporting
The images posted
on IntelDesk.com and a link to the photos appeared on IntelDesk.com’s main
director of NUFORC, also reportedly viewed the webcam image of the object.

shows only a side view, so it was unclear if the object was triangle- or
boomerang-shaped or some other configuration.
The incident was reported on the Web by UK-based ProFindPages.com, which
carried the story Feb. 12.
Strange moon sighting
Has our Moon’s
position been affected by the recent tsunami which slightly altered the
rotation of our planet? I am forced to wonder, especially when I awoke around
4 a.m. in late January, a few days before Full Moon, to find something bright
shining in through my bedroom window from the northwest. My husband had gotten
up and as he returned to bed, I asked, “What the (heck) is that?”
I grabbed my
glasses as he pulled the curtain aside. There was the moon, fully round,
shining in on us just to the left of the dozer shed — in a place I cannot ever
remember seeing it before.
About a week later, on Jan. 31, Sanni Ceto was
in bed and says she was “told to get up.” It was around 1 or 2 a.m. She went
to get her binoculars and looked out the window. She couldn’t get back to
sleep as “this moon image kept returning into my eyes,” she says.
The disc she saw
appeared dark as in a lunar eclipse, and a bright light appeared around
the rim and lasted a minute or less. Then the entire porition turned a bright
white, with no outline on the rest of the lunar disc. What she saw appeared to
be the moon but with a portion cut out. She got up and checked on line to see
if there was an eclipse of the moon, but found no reports of one.
Strangely enough, I
had insomnia the following night, Feb. 1, and was up at 2 a.m. and decided to
look out the window toward Mount Gunnison east of us. I saw the moon there
between Gunnison and Mount Lamborn, in the shape of half a full moon, only
tilted. I didn’t think much about it, but did remember Sanni’s mentioning her
sighting and realized this was different.
UFO hovers and melts frozen pond
In Columbia City,
Ind., an evening of ice fishing turned into a night some witnesses will never
forget. Coming over the trees was an elongated triangular shaped “thing.”
It was hovering over the east end of the small farm pond they were fishing on
Jan. 31, 2005, at 10 p.m. The object moved over the frozen water and lowered
slowly. It sat motionless without a sound for a minute or two. As it rose
silently, “steam” rose from the lake. The object slipped quietly past the
trees and floated out of sight (their vision was obscured by trees). The
witnesses used their cell phones and called the local sheriff, but there was
no answer, as both cell phones had gone dead. They thought this was strange.
Also, their battery-operated fish locator (Vexilar) was also affected. The
area of the pond where the object hovered was melted into about two inches.
