JERUSALEM -- Dozens of people, including a duty official at the state-run
Meteorological Service, have reported spotting a UFO in Israel's skies.
see a source of light over Tel Aviv," Eliezer Danziger, the duty
meteorologist, told Israel army radio on Sunday. "The object changes
brightness from time to time but stays in one place. It's definitely not
airplane, just a source of light which doesn't move. Maybe it's a
helicopter." . The army radio said dozens of residents of Tel Aviv
suburbs called the station to report that they saw the unidentified flying
object, or UFO.
On Thursday, August 1, the Israeli newspaper Maariv published the startling
photo of a UFO on its back page. According to Maariv, the UFO, described
"a round reflective object," had been seen flying over a residential
Moshav Tomar, in the Jordan River valley. The UFO was photographed at
on August 1.
Editor Michael Lindemann of the ISCNI Flash has reported many UFO sightings
in Israel this summer. According to the ISCNI Flash, vol. 2, #10, part
UFOs have been seen in upper Galilee, in the Dead Sea region and flying
Barry Chamish reports he saw the triumphant return of flying triangular
formations over Israel. As always, their appearance was greeted with video
cameras to solidly document them. On July 22, a triangular craft was spotted
in the cities of Tsfat and Yokneam at 7:30 PM. It was videotaped in both
places. A professional photographer Rafi Malka was phoned and video taped
from his home in Acceded. He earned the distinction of being the first
Israeli to videotape two separate UFOs. He then phoned his nephew Doron
in Yavne, who spread the word in that city that a UFO was coming. Among
he contacted was professor Rami Shkalim, who has a Ph.D. in both physics
philosophy and is currently a professor of Kabbala at Bar Ilan University.
was one of over two hundred people who viewed the craft until it disappeared
at 12:30 AM. He had just purchased professional equipment, a Sony 320
video camera that recorded an absolutely brilliant ten minute videotape
the craft. The craft had two silvery lights, both surrounded by a perfectly
circular red aura twice their size. When the craft seems to turn a triangle
of lights is visible. Then the craft becomes two lights, which emit spirally
turning lights, like twisting fireworks, before the craft disappears to
west. He took the courageous step of going public with his videotape on
popular television program, "Good Morning Israel." The TV's
host said, "This
film is too weird to be written off as a planet or anything else we know."
The fact that the UFO appeared on Tish B'av follows the pattern of UFO
incidents falling on Jewish holy days.
