While interviewing German UFO researcher Michael Hesemann on our Dreamland Christmas show December 22, Whitley was looking through Michael?s extraordinary website and saw the June 2001 ?UFO Photo of the Month,? an image of a ?hat-shaped? craft taken in Iran in 1978.

Christmas is coming, and with it the 17th anniversary of my close encounter experience of December 26, 1985. To this day, it haunts my sleep.

Filersfiles.com reports there is a UFO wave in Texas, with over a dozen sightings. In Houston, Robert Thompson reported that on October 25, 2001, he was awake at 1:30 am and saw what I believes was a UFO. ?It didn?t have any lights on it, but I was still able to see it very clearly traveling across the sky,? he says. ?It was traveling west very fast and was oval. It was very high in the sky. It was the size of a quarter held at arm?s length. I would put my hand on the Holy Bible and swear to you that I saw what I said I saw. I don?t know what it was. However, it was big enough to see in the dark night sky, and it truly frightened me.? He is certain that it wasn?t an airplane.
