A gigantic dust storm has broken out on Mars during the opposition, when Mars is closer to the Earth than it has been since 2003. The storm is so large that it can be seen with a backyard telescope. Mars was 43 million miles from Earth at around 8:25 p.m. PST Saturday. UFO activity often increases during Mars oppositions, and this one has been no exception, as extensive UFO sightings have been reported over northern California and in the UK.
Robert Roy Britt and Tariq Malik report on the NASA website space.com that the dust storm, which was no more than a small bright dot Thursday, has blossomed into a large phone that can easily be seen from the Earth. At the same time, Wales is reporting numerous UFO sightings, just as California did last week.
The national website of Wales reports that UFO sightings are becoming almost commonplace there. The Ministry of Defense reports that there above has been a new UFO sighting there every six weeks over the past three years. Some of the descriptions are: an object with ?legs? spinning in the sky, a flying disc and a large black, hovering object, reminiscent of the large, dark triangle-shaped object of the Phoenix Lights sightings here in the US.
The UK now has its own Freedom of Information Act, which has revealed that there were seven sightings in Wales in 2002, eight in 2003, four in 2004 and nine so far this year. Ministry of Defense officer Julie Monk says the identity of the UFOs is unknown, but Welsh UFO researcher Chris Fowler says, "Some of them?[are probably] misidentification of planes, but some of them sound quite interesting. Some of them, possibly most of them, could be explained away. The people who pilots report sightings to are?a mixture of civil and military experts in their fields, so they actually have got the facilities to look into these things. There are credible sightings. And either these are ours, which mean we've got technology far more powerful than the ones we know about, or they're somebody else's."
