Since early July of this year, I have been documenting the UFO activity over the Fresno / Clovis / Sanger, California areas thanks to information forwarded to me by my friend Jeff Gonzalez, MUFON State Section Director/Investigator and founder of the Sanger Paranormal Society. Over the past few days, another incident has occurred in this area that has been covered by several blogs and UFO sites. I just 'sat back' to see what was going to result from the evidence. Last night, I asked Jeff to forward a statement in reference to this incident:
Lon...I received a call on my UFO hotline number at 559-287-UFOS(8367) Saturday night around 8:40 PM. It was from Justin who I have spoken to in person on 2 separate occasions. He contacted me about 3 weeks ago that he saw me on a TV news station about the Clovis incident case #24103. The reason Justin called me 3 weeks ago because he needed to talk to someone about all the things him and his wife were witnessing around their home for the past 4 years. I met with him and he described the weird crafts that they both have seen flying around a mountain and over their house. He told me they were mostly triangular in shape but there were other craft that he and his wife have been witnessing and they know that those crafts were not airplanes or helicopters. He used to be in the military so he knows what a airplane and a helicopter look like.
This past Saturday night, 8-21-10, I received a call from Justin advising me that I need to come over to his house ASAP. I asked him why and he stated to me that a triangle-shaped craft just hit the side of the mountain which is about 3 to 4 miles away. I really didn't know how to respond to what he just said. That's when I heard 2 other people in the back ground which I found out later to be his wife and mother. I can hear them describing what they are witnessing over the phone in the background and that's when I knew something serious was going on near them. I told him I just got out of the shower, I am going to put on clothes, grab my video equipment and I will be in-route to his house.
Justin's house is about 20 to 25 min from my house by freeway. While in-route, I grabbed my video camera and started to record myself driving to the location. Also, I called Justin back on my cell phone and put him on speaker and started to talk to him. I told him to start describing to me what he, his wife and mother were witnessing. He started by saying that his mother and wife were already home and he had just gone outside when they told Justin to look at the side of the mountain. They asked him about the weird looking lights. Justin looked and noticed what they were witnessing also. It was still light outside but barely and he described to me that he was looking at a triangle shape object siting on the side of that mountain. He said it had white lights on each corner and a bright light underneath in the center with some blue and red lights on the sides. He said the shape was definitely a triangle. After observing it for a couple of minutes, he said the craft lifted up about 30 to 40 ft as it was trying to take off but could not and the craft again fell to the ground. It attempted to lift off again with no luck and again the craft slammed back down. It did not try to take off anymore. He even said it looked liked the craft was damaged on one side.
After a few minutes went by, the 3 witnesses started to see vehicles - cars and trucks - arrive at the site. These vehicles came from over the mountain and from below. He said they just came out of nowhere. He did not know if they were military or not. By this time it's dark and they see the vehicles headlights on the hill and what he says are helicopters flying over head...but he wasn't sure. I am now turning on Copper Ave. getting close to arriving to his house when he said the vehicles and other crafts started to leave. By the time I arrived, you could not see anything on the hill except for 3 lights. At that time, I assumed that those 3 lights I was videotaping all night long on the side of the hill were from the craft in question, but it turned out that it was a house. It was around 11:00 pm when I started to see some action. I videotaped other vehicles coming to the site with one vehicle turning on a spot light where you can see on the video. I also caught people walking around with flash lights and on a couple occasions captured very bright blue flashes of light coming from the area. Justin advised me, to him it looked like someone was arch welding. He was familiar with the type of light because he had arc weld before so that's why he made that assumption.
At 12:00 am, I decide I am going to spend the night watching that mountain for I felt if there was a downed triangle raft, eventually they needed to retrieve it and there was no way in hell I was going to miss that. It was now 3:00 am with no further action on the hill. Justin's mother came out of the house and said that she going up there. Justin tried to talk his mother out of going up the hill but she was so intrigued on what she witnessed that she had to find out what it was. Well, she was gone for about 45 min and she returned with no luck. There was no way to get to that location. Even though we all witnessed other vehicles on the hill, we have no idea where or how they got there.
It is now 3:45 am and I am started to get sleepy so I get inside my truck where I have an extended cab and I dose off. I keep waking up and looking towards the hill but still nothing. Its around 5:45 am and the sun is starting to come up. It is now lighting up the side of the hill allowing me to visually see where I have been recording throughout the night. I can see a bunch of pine trees and what looks like a house. Then I noticed what looks like to me to be a gray or metallic object laying right in front of that house. You can see the sun reflect off the right side which is facing the east. I try to zoom on it but it is still very far away. It is really hard to make out the shape but for some reason, it starting to take the shape of a triangle or sting ray type of shape. At that time, I am extremely tired and my eyes could be playing tricks on me but I recorded that object.
I decided to see if I could get up there to take a closer look so I drove with one of my associates from the Sanger Paranormal Society. She had just got there to bring me some food, shoes and socks. I ran out the door in my sandals. We could not find a way to get to that house. Finally, it's 12 noon and I am tired so we decide to call it a day. I have not been back to the location to see if that gray object is still there but hopefully I will get back there today. The 3 witnesses say they will give me statements as soon as they are back from the hospital with their new baby (Justin's wife gave birth).
The video (below) in which you have was taken on Aug 22, 2010, the following day, Sunday night. It was taken in Clovis, California which is south of the crash site as the craft headed over Sanger. This video was shot by sky watchers who watch for the Sanger Paranormal Society. I am not saying it is the same craft but the witnesses said they look pretty damn close. I have those videos that I shot during that night in question that I am transferring to computer. Its taking me a little bit to transfer because the camera I used does not have a digital output (Firewire).
NOTE: I asked Jeff to forward any new information as well as the video of the crash site when completed. It should be noted that this event occurred in proximity to the 'ANGB/Fresno “Deep Underground Military Base' located at the Fresno Yosemite International Airport. The facility is operated by The 144th Fighter Wing - Air National Guard Base (ANGB) and in direct oversight of the North American Aerospace Defense Command 'NORAD'. Stay tuned for updates...Lon

NOTE: Jeffrey Gonzalez, MUFON State Section Director/Investigator and founder of the Sanger Paranormal Society forwarded a recent UFO video from Robert Thorson. The UFO activity was seen over Fresno on 7/16/2010. Jeffrey states that he knows the videographer and that he feels this is some of the best video evidence he has ever seen. I haven't used any enhancement on the video or the screen captures.
The following was forwarded to me from Jeffrey Gonzalez, MUFON State Section Director/Investigator and founder of the Sanger Paranormal Society:
MUFON CMS #24103 - Short Description of UFO Event: 2 bright lights huge object no sound thought we were going to die
Detailed Description of the UFO Event:
Im not sure how long it lasted because we thought we were going to die but you will understand in this description. It felts like minutes but I know it was seconds because we really thought we were going to die! Here is the story: I am reporting this in sadness because of this event my dog died! My daughter went to get the dogs from outside to bring them in (she's 15) and she ran screaming "get out a plane is going to hit us" "run" and she was hysterical. Me my husband and my son and I went running downstairs and my husband went to the backdoor (running) to investigate because my daughter is very meek and quiet and never screams. The next thing I know my husband is yelling "run" "its gonna hit us" and he started praying to God that we lived and if not take us to Heaven and let it be quick. We ran straight out the door as fast as our legs would go. Myself and my son never heard or saw anything we were just running for dear life. My husband told us to stop behind the trees because he thought at any moment it would hit and we wouldnt get much father ( didnt atually even think we would make it out the front door) and we live in the country so its all mostly open space in front of us. When nothing happened after a few seconds he told us to keep running as I horrifyingly saw him turn back toward the house. We kept going hurrying down the road and as we went we were trying to call our dogs that had escaped with us. My husband returned in his truck to state the object simply was gone/vanished he had no idea where it went but it never hit our house or flew over us and not a single sound was heard. So we continued the search for our dogs however one was struck by a car and killed. Later when I spoke with my husband and daughter I was informed it had 2 bright lights and was up in the sky they could see the back neighbors house below it and it made no sound and teetered a little back and forth but the lights were always horizontal to each other. This object made no sound what so ever and my husband said he saw the silhouette and it was as big as our back pasture across and very dark. I am very saddened but wanted to report this because weird things have occurred before here that we never mentioned to people. Like for one instance our laser pointer lights (we would play with our dogs with) when we would point them in the field they would disappear at some points but would be seen all the way to the orchards at other points and we always laughed that it was like something invisible was sucking up the light at that spot. Im now truely scared and wanted this reported in the case something happens to us. Now it is time for me to grieve. I am afraid to sleep. I truly believe it must have landed in our pasture but everything appears normal. Something very wrong happened here tonight...please help!! Has anyone else ever experienced this?
Jeff noted: Hey Lon, here is a case I am working on for MUFON....MUFON case #24103
The media here picked up on the story but did a piss poor job...and you can say I said that...they left out very important points...which I gave them. Here is the video link of the newscast, go ahead and use this so people can see when they compare to the actual MUFON report...also, they used a video in the news clip that had nothing to do with the report...Someone posted this on you tube which they recorded on the night of the sighting and they used it to make the news clip more exciting....that's not what this family saw that night..Here are 2 links to youtube. I recorded 2 unmarked vans sitting across the street of the house that reported the sighting the night before...These vans were parked out front the following morning....I was working that day ( AT&T Telephone) in that same area and as I was driving past the house I noticed the first van then a second one showed up...I parked 3 houses away in my van and started to record them...They both were wearing suits and this drew a flag because we are talking Saturday morning out in the country....
