Maybe Sunshine Daydream camp had something to do about all the UFO chatter.
My husband is the authority on this subject. He pretty much knows all of the tales and folklore about Bigfoot, Mothman, and chubacabras, or whatever they are called.....but he was telling me about the "activity" in Preston County. LOL.

I saw a strange cat on the edge of the interstate this afternoon on the way to the Pittsburgh Airport.


About 40 lbs...sharp pointed ears, heavy like long ring tail...was in winter coat ( a medium length) dark brown with alternative/ random muted tan markings.

Long ring tailed bobcat? in reverse markings? Wonder if it was some asian or south american castaway...but what?

Unidentified Walking Animal????

She has a site on you tube as well. Many of these videos were taken this month too.

In several of her videos, the aircraft appear pretty far away and could just be FAA aircraft. But other videos seem to indicate otherwise.

She needs to just get a search party together one night and rush into the woods and see what these things really are. Here's some of her videos:

I live just a couple of miles from the Murrysville border. There's been absolutely no mention of this locally, either on TV or in the papers.

Murrysville is bisected by US Rte 22, which is a major flyway for Life-Flight type helicopters from Indiana, Altoona, and Johnstown headed to the big trauma centers in Pittsburgh. At least in the video linked above, the UFOs seem to be just regular aircraft with flashing warning lights.

i dont know if we get more infomation over here in uk but it is now common knowledge here that nazi scientists which originally went to russia (have you seen the ufo crash where the ufo has russian writing on the side), then went to america. they worked on saucers using tessla technology and now worked for lockheed martin, yes thats area 51. the saucer that crashed there used latest fibre glass, (carbon fibres) technology which were secret materials at that point. so the last spy plain that came out of lockheed was a good few decades ago and they employ thousands of people. so what have they been up to. do you think thats it's co incidence that most of the reports of ufo's in uk have been sited near to air bases and the reportings exploded whilst the american bases were here.
let me leave you with this. if there are aliens out there and they were happy to sit back and watch the millions slaughtered in the last century through war and natural disasters, then there not worth knowing if they did exist, and they cant be any more threat to us than we are to ourselves.

Dang, doesn't a lot of weird stuff happen in West Virginia? I remember reading about that whole Mothman thing some time ago...And then I remember something called the "Flatwoods Monster." That may not be the correct name, but I believe there were sightings of an alien outside the UFO or something like that.

Here's a report from Grafton, Oct. 8, 2009
National UFO Center | George Filer | Filer's Files

Quote:
GRAFTON -- I was outside having a smoke and noticed something golden reflecting brightly and shiny on October 8, 2009, of the sun reflecting off a UFO. I immediately realized that it was not an airplane, and ran into the house and grabbed my camera. I managed to get off one shot that fortunately turned out good considering the object was several thousand feet away and traveling about twice the speed of a passenger plane. It was twice the size of a passenger airplane and made absolutely no noise as it flew almost right over my house. The object looked very similar to a bird but did not appear to moving mechanically. It was traveling in an almost straight line away from the air force base in Kingwood WV. Thanks to MUFON CMS
There's a picture with the report about, 3/4 down the page.

A Raccoon with fangs? Would that be AliceT's pet? I wouldn't mess with it if I were you.
