NPS webcam photographs UFO over US Capitol: Image sent out over Web

     A webcam that sends images of the U.S. Capitol area over the Web reportedly photographed an unusual object over the area in the early morning hours of Feb. 10, 2005. The image was taken between 3:15 and 3:30 a.m. EST.

     The webcam is 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.

     Web sites that received the image included, a site that carries international news feeds and satellite imagery and specializes in global intelligence on international developments, science, culture, economics, military topics and other subjects.

     A researcher with 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, posted the images on their site. The researcher contacted National Park Service police as well as the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).

     The images posted on and a link to the photos appeared on’s main news page.

     Peter Davenport, director of NUFORC, also reportedly viewed the webcam image of the object.

     The webcam photo 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, 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.

     The following sketch was sent in to me by Valerie Benson, Star Person, with the caption, “Some UFOs are a little strange looking.” Well... I have to add, so are some people.
