MUFON Investigates More Valley UFO Sightings

Witnesses report seeing things near Van Nuys and Burbank airports.

Southern California remains the area with the highest reported sightings of strange things in the skies than anywhere else in the country, according to the .

At theirattended by about 40 people, the state MUFON state section director Steve Murillo said that although things have slowed, he still gets reports.

“We still have a week, and the ones that are most compelling we launch investigations,” Murillo explained. “We don’t jump to any conclusions that what people are seeing are alien-based or have aliens in them. We gather the data as thoroughly as we can.”

In a recent local case in the San Fernando Valley, witnesses saw a red sphere in the sky for at least five minutes. The sphere was 100 to 500 feet away near the Van Nuys Airport and then a black helicopter circled it two or three times before it disappeared straight up into the sky. The case occurred in April, but was reported only recently.

“Unfortunately, people wait a long time to report cases, which makes it hard to follow up, but we do often get multiple sightings around the same times,” Murillo said.

Director of Investigations for MUFON, said he was also continuing to investigate sightings in Burbank around July 4.

“It is iffy when there are reports around July 4 because there are a lot of strange things in the skies, but this one had three lights in and the witness drove to get a better view,” Mistretta said. “There was another report on that was identical, and it occurred about 8 p.m. with six lights that went from South to West at a steady rate and then flew straight up and disappeared.”

Similar sightings were seen on May 6 in Venice where three lights were spotted and then went out.

The MUFON investigators plan to be on KPKF Radio 90.7 FM on Monday, Aug. 27 on the Cary Harrison Show.

On Tuesday,, a mechanical engineer, talked about anti-gravity devices and alien creatures. He talked about research into magnetic fields and a craft called TR3B. It is a large triangular-shaped craft. (See the video above in the photo gallery.)

meets on the third Tuesday of every month at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Studio City. If meetings get bigger, the group hopes to move to the Beverly Garland Hotel in Studio City.

My father lives in South Central Los Angeles. About three years ago, he saw a sphere approaching from the West. It hovered for a couple of seconds, a couple hundred feet from his location at a height no more than three hundred feet. it then took off so fast in a northeast direction. I reckoned it was headed to the Angeles National Forest.

On August 19th around 7:00... I was riding in a car on the 210 near Pasadena(on my way home to Highland Park). Just right before Lake Metro station... my eye caught a squarish metallic object sky (to the left). I looked down for a second then back up. I stared pretty hard at the object (like three seconds), then it suddenly disappeared. There were absolutely no clouds... So what exactly was that?

All I can tell you is there IS a triangular ufo being flown in the states I have seen it hover right over my house in Conway,mo.and I mean close...on two different occasions and this is before I ever even heard of the delta shaped craft.there was four lights,one on each tip and a huge one in the middle altho th one in the middle didn't light up until it went past my head and over the forest area beside my house.then a red glow came out of it(the middle light) and I thought it was exactly like something I would have seen in a movie.only sound was a slight hum.no wind at all.i don't know if its "one of ours"or not but if it was it can hover silently.but we all know the U.S has more advanced technology then they let the poor uneducated citizens know about..anyway gl in your research!
