The first encounter came the evening of Nov. 17. A Japan Air Lines crew saw a UFO as big as a battleship - and the FAA tracked it on radar. The second encounter came a few days ago, when the FAA admitted it publicly, then promptly closed its investigation, pronouncing the whole thing unresolved and inexplicable. The third encounter came Wednesday, when the FAA contended that a review of the radar tapes shows the UFO to be simply an inexplicably split image of the Japanese airliner.

Six U.S. soldiers who were reported AWOL from their intelligence posts in West Germany might have believed that they were selected to greet alien spaceships and lead a group of people to a science fiction-style heaven, according to friends and acquaintances. "They were apparently convinced that the aliens had chosen them as the chosen few to be on hand when they reclaimed the Earth," said Stan Johnson, a friend of the group's apparent leader. The six, who are being held at Fort Benning, Ga., adhered to an offshoot Christian belief called the "rapture," said Johnson.

It's little wonder. An FBI memo noting the alleged recovery of three UFOs in New Mexico is the law enforcement agency's most requested and viewed document . By far. Not that you need to make an official request. The truth is out there . It's available to anyone who navigates to the FBI's website . Dated Mar. 22, 1950, and addressed to FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, the memo relates a third-hand claim as told to an FBI agent. The person, whose name is redacted, told the agent that an Air Force investigator had told him "high-powered radar" had jammed the steering mechanism of three "flying saucers" causing them to crash to Earth.

In the apparent hope of creeping out future generations, Michael Jackson has considered having his body frozen, says the New York Daily News. The good news: Our children's children could possibly have the chance to finally figure the guy out. We aren't having all that much luck ourselves. In another surprise, we've learned that Jackson is also a big UFO fan, according to author Michael Luckman, who's writing a book called Alien Rock: The Rock 'n' Roll Extraterrestrial Connection (Pocket Books)

Robert F. Eure walked out of Temple University's Paley Library and glanced toward the heavens. Dark skies. Nothing moving. No rippling lights, no slivers of saucer-shaped metal cutting the clouds, no enigmatic whoosh. This, most assuredly, is not as Eure would have it. To know, with certainty, that there is something up there, something alive, intelligent, capable of spanning vast light years between here and wherever, would be a profound affirmation for Eure, a dogged UFO hunter and one of the few African Americans working the underground of amateur paranormal investigators.

Up, up and away! Well, not exactly. Third grader Amanda Wilson's glittery, paste-covered UFO lifted off the ground about five inches yesterday. It hovered there for a few minutes before she turned off the battery switch and let it fall. It would have stayed there for "eternity, or as long as the batteries lasted," said her teacher Janice Ordog, who was judging the projects built by students in Florence's gifted and talented classes. Streams of air from two small, battery-propelled fans lifted the Styrofoam bowl-and-cup contraption, while a wooden stick kept the craft from floating out of control.

Tom Carey thinks the Bermuda Triangle is hogwash and the moon landing was real. Elvis did leave the building, and 9/11 was an act of terror, not our own Reichstag fire. But creatures from outer space? That's another story altogether. I'm not sure what I was expecting when I dropped by his Huntingdon Valley house the other day to learn why a man would spend 20 years investigating the 1947 UFO incident known simply as Roswell, for the New Mexico community where an alien craft and its crew of little humanoids did or didn't crash.

Search the Internet for UFO, and you will find Helen Weber. She is not a strange visitor from another planet. She is president of the SHADO-USECC Fan Club, an international organization devoted to the 1969-1970 British science-fiction television show UFO. "I watched the first show, and I was hooked," Weber said. "What set the show apart from other science fiction was it had better scripts, better sets, outstanding special effects and interesting characters. . . . I still enjoy talking to other fans about the show.

THE WAY David M. Jacobs sees it, aliens from outer space have been kidnapping humans for aeons and sexually molesting them to create human-alien hybrids that walk among us today undetected and will soon take over Earth. He knows that sounds crazy. But he long ago quit caring what people think of him. As director of the International Center for Abduction Research, Jacobs, 71, has made it his life's mission to investigate claims of extraterrestrial abduction. "What I'm doing will either be an interesting but nonessential footnote to popular culture or the most important thing that's ever happened to humankind.

Comets and UFO cults and the coming millennium spell catastrophe. And yesterday, cult experts were predicting more bloodshed was on the way through the year 2000. Temple professor William Alnore and other cult experts were "not surprised" this week when 39 computer nerds - draped with purple triangles of cloth - from the Heaven's Gate cult died in an apparent suicide pact in a San Diego county mansion. "I wasn't surprised at all because cults are dangerous," said Alnore, author of "Soothsayers of the Second Advent," "UFOs in the New Age," and "Heaven Can't Wait.

The only time Jan C. Harzan saw an unidentified flying object up close, he became a believer. It was 1965, and he was a 10-year-old in his bedroom in Thousand Oaks, Calif. "My brother came in and let me know he had observed this craft hovering 10 feet off the ground," right there in their backyard. When Harzan went out there, he said, "I saw a landing craft 30 feet from me. " It had "no visible means of propulsion, except for a humming noise it was making. " After about five minutes, Harzan said, "it slowly started to drift away and then shot off at an incredible speed.

Cue the spooky music. The Web's abuzz about government video that shows a giant bright spot near Mercury. "Wow. Wait till you see this," says UFO buff and YouTube channeler siniXster, narrating as a solar flare fills a view of the planet closest to the sun. "Holy smokes, look at that," siniXster says. "That is definitely some sort of manufactured object. It's cylindrical on either side. It has shape in the middle. It definitely looks like a ship to me. " Which is why the video is titled, "Amazing huge cloaked UFO next to Mercury.
