'Cube' UFO Seen Near Uvalde, Texas


Date/Time: 2009-09-12 23:28
Location: Between La Pryor & Uvalde, TX

"While traveling back to her home in Eagle Pass Texas, my niece and my sister in law saw a cube shaped object traveling toward them on on the path of the road.

The object she described was a cube shape that was flashing white inside it. She told me that she freaked out because it was traveling toward her at about 75 Mph and would only flash every 10 seconds.

The object passed over them at approx. 15 feet above the vehicle. When the vehicle passed right above her she was able to see inside the vehicle because it flashed at that time and could only see an L shaped orange colored seat or something that looked like a seat inside it.

They had passed a 18 wheeler that was stopped by a DPS trooper about a mile back and said that if the object kept going on the same path, they would have surely seen it also.

I don't have the exact date, but it was about the second week of Sept. My niece did not report the sighting to local authorities because it happened on a baron stretch of road.

She told me that when she got home she told her husband, but that he didn't seem interested. They were back in town last night and told me the story, so me being interested in the subject decided to tell you and maybe find out if anyone else had seen something similar in that area.

She was very sure of what she saw and is not known to exaggerate."

Was it a Jet or a UFO?


Stephens County, Texas-
On September 29, 2009 at approximately 11:30 p.m., I stepped out to let my dogs potty. I noticed what appeared to be a bright star to my east, at 40 degrees AGL. It didn't take long to realize this "star" was moving west. I stepped back inside and grabbed my binoculars.

What I saw with the aid of the binoculars, is what I have depicted in the picture above. It appeared to be a F32 Raptor, or possibly some other jet. It could almost be mistaken for what some call a 'triangular UFO'. The white lights glowed steady, while the red and green navigational lights were the only one's that flashed.

I listened but only heard a very faint, distant rumble, not anything like the sound of an F16, a commercial jet, or even a small private jet.

The object flew on a westerly path towards Dyess AFB, Abilene, TX. The unknown aircraft was fast, relatively silent and was approximately 1 mile AGL (above ground level).

Sighting lasted less than 2 minutes.

MUFON Case #19063
Date/Time: 2009-09-03 22:10
Location: Plano, TX
Shape: Flash,Star-like,Other
Duration: 04:30:00
Distance: Unknown
Description:
Most nights I step outside on my back porch for a smoke. For several months I have noticed a brightly light object in the NW sky about 45 degrees over the horizon. At first the object appeared to be a plane at night, with red, green, and white flashing lights. However, over several nights I noticed that the object does not move - at all. I can track star positions and note their movement across the sky, and can often see planes at various altitudes - all exhibit movement, even though it may be extremely slow. This object does not move. However, on one occaision it changed position in the sky DRAMATICALLY, at least 30 degrees to the east in a matter of seconds. Then returned to roughly the initial sighted position. It is in virtually the same position each night, however there may be very slight differences, as measured against tree or building positions. Casual observation would dismiss this as a very distant plane. However, over month of close observation reveals puzzling inconsistencies. These observed differences, inconsistencies are as follows: (1) Clouds will obstruct view - even very high cirrus clouds, indicating to me that is above the cloud layer, ruling out helicopters or ballons. (2) It is at least 20% brighter than any plane, except for planes that are at very low altitude. (3) Except for one or two cases, there is no measurable movement for entire event, which often lasts several hours. (4) It "suddenly" appears, and "suddenly" disappears. Like turning a switch off and on. (5) Besides red and green lights, it sometimes emits blue and yellow/white lights. On one occaision, I observed a blueish-purple "streak" of light. (6) All lights flash, and do not appear to be fixed location on the object. (7) Even though the object is very high (indicate by clouds), and is estimated to be 60-80 miles downrange, it appears LARGE and VERY BRIGHT compared to planes. (8) I have witnessed numerous planes at various altitudes coming and going that pass between the object and my line of sight with no deviation in the flight plan/path of the plane. The assumption is that it is therefore well outside any flight path or altitude vector of commercial aircraft. (9) Changing angle of view (such as driving across town to a friends), I often cannot locate the object, but it is once again visible when I return home, or if I call home and ask someone to look. After much careful observation over many night, I am more puzzled than ever. The only explanation I can think of is a geo-stationary satellite - but I have not heard, nor can I find any information, on satellites that have large flashing lights, or that would suddenly "turn off", or make occaisional movement, or wouldn't be located in the EXACT inclination in the sky. I cannot imagine why there would be red and green "navigational" lights on a satellite, nor the other colors documented. Several friends have seen it with me, but quickly dismiss it as a plane and will not spend the time to watch/document it for hours to see that there is no motion across the sky, nor wait around until it suddenly "blinks off". I am hesitant to report to the authorities based upon my friend's reactions - as I sure no LEO will watch it for hours to verify what I am reporting. I can easily show to anyone most any reasonably clear night. It is visible when most stars are obscured (it's that bright). Can anyone in MUFON shed some light on this? it is really beginning to nag on me the more I watch it. Is it a satellite? Help!


MUFON Case #19079
Submitted on: 2009-09-05 02:25
Location: Houston, TX
Shape: Unknown
Distance: 20 feet or less
Entity Type: Human-like,Insect-like,Other
Vallee Index: CE4
Description:
The events involve many abductions over a 3 year period. I have never seen a UFO per say, and I believe this is intentional. Why? I can only guess the reason is they don't want me to categorize them. There are many accounts of ships and how they are associated with various species. My only conclusion is they want to hide their origins or if you like the faction they belong to. The first abduction I recall was vague, and at first I believed it was merely a dream. I would like to mention that over the years I have never been able to recall my dreams very well, and if I do the memory of them fades quickly. These however are vivid, and the memory of them persist years later. The first abduction I recall I was sitting at a round table with other people surrounding it. An adult male in his 40s asked me if I would join them. I replied 'join what, what is it you want me to join?' He more or less broke it down and described them as a group of decision makers. From his description the impression I got was that they were a think tank. When I asked if they were a think tank he laughed and said 'sort of'. He then ask a few people at the table to describe to me what their responsibilities were. He asked a very young look girl sitting on his left to describe her "job". It consisted of making sure that people were happy and had fun things to do that made them happy. I suppose someone in charge of moral. I replied that I liked that, and it seemed to please her a great deal. He then ask another woman sitting three chairs to his left to describe her responsibility. It consisted of something like an efficiency officer. She more less described something like insuring maximum productivity at all costs. Now I use that description, because it is hard for me to describe exactly what it is she does. My visceral reaction to what she said, was 'that is fascist!' This seemed to anger her, and she acted a bit put out. There is more to the abduction and borders on the fantastic, but what I did account more or less covers the event. Another abduction involved me waking up with 2 beings standing over me on either side. The one on my left looked to the other one and asked 'is he waking up?' All I saw were vague shapes, with a sort of halo effect around their heads. Like intense lighting from above. I was laying on my back, and didn't appear to be strapped down or anything. I went back to sleep at that moment. This is the moment that permeated every incident after that. I realized I was not asleep and from a subconscious to a conscience level I realization that I was awake and not alone. In the back of my mind I conceptualized how I should react. 'How I should react to someone doing something to me without my permission?' My reaction was to choke the person on my right. I reached up and made contact with someone's chest. I was surprised and preceded to feel this person next to me. It felt artificial and yet organic at the same time. To try and articulate what I felt it was like pot marks. These were not crude pot marks like scaring, it was more like organized pores. The person did not stop me or even flinch. I felt enough to realize whoever it was was humanoid and then proceeded to try and choke them. The throat felt like there was nothing underneath, just some sort of skin covering a void. After that I fell back asleep. The next abduction involved me waking up to a man asking me questions. I am going to omit the questions simply because they are frightening and I don't think they will be understood. Needless to say I reacted obstinately. If you knew me you would understand. I replied angrily that they should be doing something a different way. And all he replied was if they could do it the way I described, that they wouldn't need to do the other. So I said 'don't you think that is what you need to be working towards?' A large person sitting on my right kind of looked back at me worried. From what I gathered he was an abductee as well. *To note, during these abductions my vision was obscured. By that I mean blurred. Not to the point of totally blurring my vision, just enough to make it hard to make out detailed features. Although I don't recall specific events about my dreams, I never experienced something like this. There were many abductions after these and at one point I held conversations with one in particular. They told me things, some I believe to be true and others I am not so sure about. They played on my assumptions and clearly saw me as inferior. Now that is not to say they didn't like me, I got the feeling they saw me as cute. I appears that their 'attachment' to humanity seems to run deeper than superficial. A few of the things they told me? Well, they claimed their species is 30 billion years old. When I replied in astonishment that our current universal expansion was only 15 billion years old they laughed and said 'we know'. They said that they are very similar to us socially... love, family, culture, even crime. Needless to say I was floored. I am not the only person to have been abducted and experienced something like this. I am not special, I am just one of millions on earth who have been contacted. There are others on earth who have had the same thing happen to them, and are afraid to repeat it. Although some are not and have bravely come forward and recounted their experience. I applaud these brave people. The aliens clearly asked me not to mention this to anyone, and in reality I haven't recalled even a quarter of my experience. Whether they were concerned about how I would be perceived by my peers or merely didn't want their existence to be known, I am not sure. I suspect it is the later. They want to keep their presence hidden, that much is clear. And when I told them I wouldn't keep my mouth shut about it, they didn't seem surprised. I told them if they really didn't want me to say anything they might as well kill me now. Needless to say I am still here and do not fear them. I saw six different species and interacted with four of them. Now I know our universe is more diverse and wonderful than we ever imagined. I do not expect people to believe me. It doesn't matter, I know in my heart and mind that what I experienced was real and I will never forget it.

No slow dimming, just completely gone, as it the light was extinguished. There were no clouds in the sky to obscure the object. The obect arced, stopped then vanished. I watched it for about 3 minutes, it had no sound.

DURING A FOOTBALL HALF-TIME I LOOKED BEHIND ME (WEST} AND SAW A CYLINDER SHAPE OBJECT HOVERING MOTIONLESS . IT WAS ABOUT 1.5 MILES AWAY AT A HEIGHT OF APPROXIMATED 1500 TO 2000 FEET. A FRIEND OF MINE SAW THE OBJECT TOO. IT APPEARED TO BE SOMEWHAT ILLUMINATED WITH THE BOTTOM PORTION EMITTING THE MOST LIGHT. IT MADE NO NOISE WHATSOEVER. I WATCHED IT FOR ABOUT 5 MINUTES AND THEN BRIEFLY TURNED AROUND TO FACE THE FOOTBALL FIELD (EAST). WHEN I TURNED BACK AROUND A MINUTE LATER IT WAS GONE. AT FIRST I WAS TRYING TO DETERMINE IF WAS A HELICOPTER OR A BLIMP OR A BALOON. IT MADE NO NOISE AND SO I RULED OUT IT BEING A . HELICOPTER. IF IT WAS A BALLOON OR BLIMP IT WOULD MOVE A LITTLE BIT AND IT WOULD NOT DISAPPEAR SO FAST. THERE IS A WEB SITE SOMEWHERE ON THE INTERNET THAT SHOWS TYPICAL UFO SHAPES AND A PHOTOGRAPH SOMEONE TOOK OF A SIMILARLY SHAPED UFO. IT WAS THE SPITTING IMAGE OF WHAT I SAW IN SAINT JO BUT, UNFORTUNATELY I CANT FIND THAT PARTICULAR SITE AGAIN.

Description:
At 6:40 am on Friday September 18, 2009 I stepped out the front door to get car ready to take daughter to school. My door faces north and I looked up to see Venus fade with the sun coming up in the eastern sky. I unlocked the car and then looked due north and up as if to stretch. I noticed what looked like another star appear almost straight up from my location. I watched this star for about 5 minutes and found that it was moving slowly to the south. I opened my front door and asked my wife and daughter to come see what I was seeing. We watched this object for about 5 more minutes and noticed that it hade a dark see through haze about the exterior of it. It had appeared to be at about 10,000 to 20,000 feet high. The light then began to fade then flicker then bright flash then go out. at that exact moment another light just to the left but lower lit up then flickered and flashed then went out and the again but further to the left and higher about level with the first light another light appeared then flickered and flashed and the went out. Then the dark haze faded away and looked kind of like dissipating heat waves. The weather was nice no clouds no wind no rain. Visibility was unlimited. We felt fine although a bit bewildered at the site.

Location: Abilene, TX
Shape: Saturn-like
Distance: Over one mile
Description:
Sitting on porch facing west enjoying a nice cool evening lots of beautiful stars out. Could not figure out what I was looking at but knew it was not a star or an aircraft. I thought that it was a UFO have seen such things before out here in the mountains of west Texas. So I went inside to get my wife and my binoculars. My wife took a look in the binoculars and could not explain what it was other than it was stationary in the sky with falshing white lights. Then it took off eastward fairly fast and the light were spinning and flashing then headed southeast out of sight. At some point the lights flashing were red then white and then maybe a blue or green. I then felt relieved that I was not the only one to see this and that I was not just going crazy. The other sitings I had been alone. Watched the object until it could no longer be seen from my backyard. Took some video of the event.

MUFON Case #19639
Date/Time: 2009-09-20 20:00
Location: SCHERTZ, TX
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 00:05:00
Description:
September 20, 2009 @ approx. 8:00 P.M. The skies were dark and clear. My wife and I left the house to walk the dog as usual.

We got to the corner of the street and began to walk across. I was half way across when I heard the thrust of an engine which seemed to be twice as loud as usual. I looked up in all directions thinking that it was a low flying passenger jet and saw nothing.

The engine thrust lasted 5-7 seconds. I then looked up and saw a brilliant white light that seemed narrow in diameter. Best description of light-take a lazer pointer, chnge the color to white, eliminate beam of light and look directly into light.

There seemed to be what looked like static electricity from possibly underneath for about 3 to 4 seconds then stopped. The object started to slowly move and then I caught a split second look at what seemed to be a wing.

I yelled at my wife to look at the object as it started to accellerate. As it started to move 3 lights came into view. As in a jet liner, left blink followed immediately by right blink. The count 1 Mississippi for the 3rd light. This continued as it crossed the horizon.

The object was noiseless as it moved. It came from a crawl and within 5 seconds it moved like a Japanese Supertrain. It came to a stop at a certain point, but before it did, what seemed to be static electricity was flashing from left to right side. The object appeared to hover and had a blinking light as it stayed in that position.I took a step down from the curb to cross back to the other side of the street. When I stepped down, I looked over and saw that the object moved what seemed like a 45 to 90 degree angle and still had a blinking light.

When I got to the other side of the street, I looked back and noticed that the light had changed from a blinking to a solid light, the same as I initially observed.

I talked things over with my wife and she mentioned the fact that for some reason, there was no traffic during this observation. The street that intersects as well as our street, has a good amount of traffic at any given time. It seems as if we were in a time warp, if there is such a thing.

Also, in the horizon where the object stopped is where I always see planes taking off from the airport. Neither my wife or I remember seeing any flights taking off.


MUFON Case #19665

Location: McAllen, TX
Shape: Star-like
Distance: Unknown
Description:
We were coming home from town when I was turning on north on the street where I live I glanced to the right because I saw something kind of strange. It was an object that I thought was an airplane because it looked like it had a strobe light but I kept looking at it and the object was not moving. I told my wife and my kids to look at the object. My wife does not like to think about things like that because it freaks her out. So my daughter was looking at the object and we were there for about 30 minutes or so. The object kept changing colors, a red color, blue color then a white color. I took a photo but ny camera could not zoom that much, but I did my best. The object then started moving toward the west northwest slowly till I could barely see the lights. It was kind of freaky being from south Texas you dont see this kind of things.

==========

Date of Sighting: September 16, 2009
Time of Sighting: About 9:30 PM CDT
Location of Sighting: Corpus Christi, Texas (Along Gulf Coast in SE Texas)
Description: Liquid Falls on Woman From Aerial Triangular Object
We were sitting outside of out apartment watching the dogs run around. My fiance and I were sitting on a table about 6 inches apart. I felt a drop of liquid hit my left arm and I was like what the heck was that. I looked up to see if there were any clouds and there were none. A half a second later I felt my right arm get sprinkled with what I thought (and looked like) was water so I looked up again at which time we both saw a LARGE dark triangle shaped object in the air. It had very faint lights along 2 sides of the triangle. It appeared to be solid because the lights ran the whole length of both sides. It was very weird. I couldn't see the lights on the third side, but again the lights were very dim so it was hard to see in the first place. It didn't make any noise. It appeared to be far away, but was very large.

UFO History- In Video

Interview with Bob Emenegger, on the making of the 1979 UFO Documentary- UFOs: It Has Begun, Presented by Rod Serling




UFOs: It Has Begun- The Documentary





In 1974, American documentary producer, Robert Emenegger, was asked (by the Republican Party) to produce a film about UFOs, using only official government people and files. Emenegger was promised footage of the actual 1964 landing of a ‘flying saucer’ which had occurred at Holloman Air Force Base,New Mexico. This film was made and given the title of UFOs: Past, Present and Future.

The promised Holloman AFB-UFO footage never showed up, however, Emenegger had already filmed dramatized parts of the film beforehand, which depicted air force personell answering phones, driving emergency vehicles, etc. Instead, Emenegger was forced to use painted depictions of the alien craft, its occupants and the meeting that supposedly took place there.

In 1976 the documentary was re-released as UFOs: It Has Begun and again re-released in 1979. In this 1979 version, additional material was added, featuring French ufologist Jacques Vallee and segments concerning cattle mutilations.

While Ghost Hunting, Group Saw UFOs



Walnut Springs, TX- July 8, 2009

Our paranormal group was on a bridge doing a paranormal investigation to test our ghost hunting equipment. While filling out our paperwork and had looked up to see whether or not there were any clouds, to make note of the weather conditions.

One of the spectators that was there watching, had said that she had gotten a strange picture with lights behind another spectator. We were trying to determine if maybe it were lightening bugs so, we stood him against the wall of the bridge in the same location to see where the light could have come from.

We had looked up to see if we could see lightening bugs and we noticed that there was a large spherical light and a small star behind it. We thought that it was a plane at first but were wondering what sort of plane would be that large and we couldn't see it's flashing lights on it's wings.

It was moving slowly from south to north. It was then that the smaller light, that we thought at first was a star, dropped down, made a "U" and shot straight up rapidly and disappeared. The larger object quickly shot across the sky(from south to north) and slowed dramatically. It remained in that location in the sky for about 15 - 20 minutes. It then made a "U" and shot straight up and disappeared.

I looked at the man standing next to me and said "did you see that?" I heard a voice from behind me say "yes, and what the hell was it?" I turned around to see that the entire group (with the exception of one member who was putting up equipment and making notes) had looked up to see what we were looking at and had witnessed the entire event. We were all shocked and were unsure what to make of this.

Belief in aliens not necessarily against the faith, Vatican official says

WORLD NEWS

Rome, Italy, Sep 17, 2009
(CNA).- Father Jose Gabriel Funes, director of the Vatican Observatory, said this week there is no opposition between belief in the existence of aliens and at the same time belief in God. This position, he reminded, was held by Father Angelo Secchi, the 18th century Jesuit astronomer and director of the Observatory of the Roman College—today the Pontifical Gregorian University.

In an interview with L’Osservatore Romano, Father Funes explained that Father Secchi was the first scientist to classify the “stars according to their spectrum” and that the existence of aliens “could not be excluded a priori.”

Father Funes said establishing contact with aliens is “very difficult” because of the “almost insurmountable obstacle of distances in the universe,” even with today’s technology.

He went on to note that the neither Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith or academic officials at other institutions has made any statements on the issue, adding that “as a scientist I am always willing to update my ideas in response to the latest research. For example, regarding the issue of space and time in the universe, I believe it is finite, while others believe it is infinite.”

“There are interesting theories about this,” he continued, “such as the so-called ‘multiverse,’ but they continue to be merely speculative: the problem is in how to prove them.”

Father Funes said astronomy is an element that can contribute to dialogue between peoples, as it can help to understand that “all the people of the earth are under the same sky and gaze upon the same heavens.”

“It is obvious that today you cannot do research without collaboration. One country on its own cannot build a huge telescope: it is necessary to work with other people, and with other religions and cultures as well. Thus astronomy can be at the service of dialogue,” the Argentinean priest said.

He went on to stress that an astronomer must always have “his feet planted firmly on the ground and that “scientific research demands a culture of effort and work. In this way it can be useful for young people as well.”

Father Funes said it is widely believed today that “in order to be a scientist one must necessarily be atheist. This is not true,” he corrected.

“The Pope said it well during the Mass of the Epiphany when he pointed out that ‘many scientists—following in Galileo's footsteps renounce neither reason nor faith; instead they develop both in their reciprocal fruitfulness.’”

“I chose to be an astronomer because I believe that in the universe it is possible to encounter God. And I continue to be one with the same conviction,” he said.

Father Funes also announced that in order to mark the International Year of Astronomy, an expo on telescopes will take place October 15 at the Vatican Museums. In addition, the Pontifical Academy for Sciences will host a November 6-11 Congress on Astrobiology that will look at the search for life in the universe.

There's Water on the Moon, Probes Confirm


Ker Than for National Geographic News
September 24, 2009

The long-standing theory of the moon being bone dry is now all wet.

That's because large swaths of the lunar surface are saturated with water—or at least the ingredients needed to make water, a suite of new studies confirm.

A trio of satellites—including India's recently failed lunar probe, Chandrayaan-1—picked up the light signature of water (H2O) or hydroxyl (OH) or both while mapping the moon.

The other two probes that found moon water are NASA's Cassini and Deep Impact spacecraft.

But don't go planning a lunar pool party just yet: The water or hydroxyl molecules on the moon are bound to other molecules and exist in trace amounts over the entire lunar surface.

Still, scientists estimate there is about a quart of water and/or hydroxyl for every cubic yard of lunar soil. (Get the facts on moon exploration.)

The surprise finding suggests moon water may be a renewable resource, created constantly as a result of interactions between charged particles from the sun and the lunar surface. (Take a moon quiz.)

"The Heck With Hydrogen"

The news comes close on the heels of NASA's announcement that its Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter recently detected large amounts of hydrogen, a possible marker for water, at the moon's south pole.

Larry Taylor, a planetary geologist at the University of Tennessee, said his team's findings go one step further.

"All [the LRO scientists] can say is they've found hydrogen," said Taylor, a co-author on one of the new studies, which is based on data from Chandrayaan-1. "We're saying, The heck with the hydrogen! It might actually be water."

Taylor and his team think the lunar water and/or hydroxyl are created when hydrogen in the form of protons from the sun's solar wind strike oxygen-rich minerals and glasses on the moon's surface.

"You have protons and you have an oxygen looking for somebody, and they make a marriage," Taylor said.

Moon Water a Mind Changer

It's unclear at present whether the satellites detected water or hydroxyl on the moon, but both substances could prove useful to future lunar missions.

Even if the lunar soil contains only hydroxyl, Taylor said, that hydroxyl can be extracted and combined with lunar hydrogen to form freshwater.

A ready supply of water on the moon would in turn reduce the payloads that would need to be taken into space to maintain a future lunar outpost.


Dark shadows obscure craters on the moon's south pole in a picture from NASA's 1994 Clementine mission.

Scientists have long suspected the moon might have water, possible hidden in these permanent shadows. Now a trio of satellites have confirmed that water does exist in trace amounts over the entire lunar surface, scientists said in September 2009.


LCROSS, a probe that will soon smash into a permanently shadowed crater on the moon, might help answer some of the lingering questions.

The controlled impact will send up a plume of material into the light, so scientists can get a better look at what's inside.

Overall, Taylor noted that he had previously been a staunch proponent of the dry-moon theory, but he is elated to be proven wrong.

"That's how science goes," he said. "It's about changing your mind about things."

Findings appear online September 24 on the Science Express Web site.

Iran Downs Strange Bright Unidentified Craft Over Persian Gulf


WORLD NEWS

Tehran - A satellite image of Iran's Khark and Khargou Islands in Persian Gulf where the bright objects were reportedly sighted by the IRGC Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has targeted and downed an unidentified shining object after sighting it over Persian Gulf waters.

"Glowing objects were sighted over the Persian Gulf. IRGC air defense targeted one of the objects successfully, forcing it to plummet and sink in the seas off Boushehr (Province)," said top regional commander, Brigadier Ali Razmjou.

"The three bright objects were detected by our radars when flying over the Persian Gulf Islands of Khark and Khargou," he added, according to a Monday report posted on IRNA.

Brig. Razmjou explained that when the radars indicated that they were not Iranian aircrafts, the IRGC fired at the three objects. He also added that the fallen objects' remains have not been found yet.

The exact time and location of the sighting and downing of the weird aircraft has not been announced.

Editor's note: There's been no follow-up and with so little information, I'm wondering if this is a
ruse of some sort.

Israel has called on world leaders to walk out on Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad when he speaks at the United Nations General Assembly, in protest to his call "to destroy the Jewish state".

Between Iran's nuclear ambitions, it's support for Islamist militant groups and Ahmadinejad calling the World War II Nazi genocide of Jews "a 'lie' devised as a pretext for Israel's creation", it's no wonder Israel is stirred up and aliens might be interested in said goings-on.

LITS Solves the Google Earth- Bristol Channel UFO Mystery


There are at least two "Google Earth" UFOs floating around on the internet. The latest Google Earth UFO appears to be a saucer type object above the waters of the Bristol Channel, off the southern shore of Wales, near the Aberthaw Power Station.

I at first thought it to be one of the "domes" near the station, but those are closer, smaller and clearly seen in the photo.


The photo below was taken from Rhoose Point, looking west towards Aberthaw Power Station.


(Click on photos for larger view.)

Looking at a number of photos, I've concluded that it isn't a UFO, "flying saucer", or otherwise.


Sorry to be a party pooper but a wee bit of sleuthing would have solved the mystery before it got started.

Case solved, not a UFO.


Ah, wait! There is one I haven't figured out yet. It's the one that was located near Hong Kong, China. I'm still working on that one. It does appear to be flying and it is an unidentified object at this time, so I'm labeling it a UFO.

Bright Blue Beam Lights Up Sky Over Kingwood

On Monday, September 21, 2009, at approximately 9:00 PM, I witnessed an unexplainable event in Kingwood, TX. I was driving south on Loop 494 between Royal Crossing Drive and Kingwood Drive, near the entrance to the Homewood Suites Hotel. The entire sky suddenly became brightly lit in a bluish color.

This lasted approximately 1 second. Another second passed and then the entire sky was lit again but in the pattern of 2-3 large beams as if the light were coming from the horizon line. This was too large and too bright to have been any type of spotlight.

Approximately 5 minutes later I was driving north on Forest Cove drive and a bright blue object (the same shade the lit sky was) flew through the sky in a large arch. The light was traveling very fast. The light seems to blink and then disappeared.

I had a passenger in the front seat who also saw both events.

An Expedition To Yakutiya, To Explore ET Underground Bases

WORLD NEWS

15 September, 2009
Yakutia24- Yakutiya Ufologist Nikolai Subbotin is confident, that the territory of Yakutiya was visited by "newcomers" from extraterrestrial civilizations.

Yakutia is a part of Siberia that is one of the least populated areas in the world, having approximately 3,000,000 square miles and only 1,000,000 residents.

In the tundra, Subbotin asserts, are dome-like entrances and deep underground enormous cavities, which are divided into the rooms. Such mysterious structures have been found in Yakutiya. The scientific leader of expedition Nikolai Subbotin reported: “In the Tibetan manuscripts, the rolls, it is written, that this was an earlier Yakut defense system of our ancient civilization. Sounds, of course, as complete fantasy and improbability, but nevertheless, these documents exist in the rolls as described”.


Structures are located along the bed Of the Vilaya river. To reveal the locations of the bases, the extra-terrestrials used the familiar (crop) circles in the fields. Only here, circles are flooded under water. There are several versions "of structures. Basic - heritage of ancient civilization." But ufologists have examined the 'older' versions (of crop circles) created by ETs (or as the Russians refer to them, "newcomers").

Several thousand years ago, when Yakuts lived in larger tribes, in those places occurred a large cataclysm. As they describe, "the sons of sky arrived flying, in them arose the war with those people, which lived on the Earth."

The expedition will comprise of 15 people, who specialize in "inexplicable phenomena". The participants will inspect two dome-like objects.

Editor's Note: What will this mean to the field of UFO research? If the expedition is successful and they find the evidence they seek (and share it with the world), the knowledge could very well change our world, hopefully in a good way. I wish the expedition a safe journey and good fortune. Hopefully no one will be home, or at least hospitable.

ABOUT YAKUTIA:

Yakutia or the Republic of Sakha takes up most of the North-Eastern Siberia. It is a huge territory (one-sixth the size of all Russia) is covered with plain tundra (in the North), mountain ranges 2000-3000 m high (East and South) and taiga (West). More than 40% of the territory lies beyond the Arctic Circle. The density of population is less than 1 person per mile.

Yakutsk, the capital of Yakutia, Siberia is a center of diamonds and other precious stones. It also is known for it's Institute of Permafrost, Geology Museum, Museum of Mammoth and many other museums.

Temperatures in Yakutia range from +40 degrees C in summer to -60 degrees C in winter. The Pole of Cold for the Northern Hemisphere with the recorded temperature -71.2 degrees C is situated in Yakutia.

Yakutia is a land of countless rivers and lakes, hundreds of glaciers and ice crusts. The Lena River, noted for its scenic beauty, is the pride of Yakutia and one of the ten largest rivers in the world.

Google UFO Doodle Mystery Revealed – Celebrated H.G. Wells B’day










Sep 05 09

Yesterday Google posted a mysterious doodle that linked to the search results for [unexplained phenomenon]. According to Google Korea's blog (English translation), this was the first from a series of 3 doodles that celebrate a famous person. The next doodle will be posted on September 15th and the hints are: mystery, invisible, novel.As someone suggested in a comment, it's very likely that Google celebrates the birthday of H. G. Wells, a famous science fiction author born on September 21st. He wrote "The War of the Worlds", a novel that describes a Martian invasion, and "The Invisible Man", a book about a scientist that finds a way to become invisible. Full story...

Beautiful Photo of Night Time Rocket Launch


People participating in a Nightsky Photography workshop at Acadia National Park were taking photos of the night sky. This photo was taken at approximately 7:50pm ET.

(Click on photo for larger view.)




NASA claims this was a night time artificial cloud study using a Black Brant XII suborbital sounding rocket.

A study is being conducted, of natural noctilucent clouds, which are also known as polar mesospheric clouds. These noctilucent clouds are found in the upper atmosphere and are spectacular displays, most easily seen right after sunset. Noctilucent clouds are located in the mesosphere around 50 miles in altitude, the highest clouds in Earth’s atmosphere.

NASA Takes Blame For The Huge Light In The N.E. Sky


(CNN) -- A series of spooky lights above parts of the northeastern United States Saturday sparked a flurry of phone calls to authorities and television news stations.

CNN affiliate stations from New Jersey to Massachusetts heard from dozens of callers who reported that the lights appeared as a cone shape shining down from the sky.

However, the lights were the result of an experimental rocket launch by NASA from the agency's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, a spokesman told CNN.

Keith Koehler said the Black Brant XII Suborbital Sounding Rocket was launched to study the Earth's highest clouds. The light came from an artificial noctilucent cloud formed by the exhaust particles of the rocket's fourth stage about 173 miles high.

Natural noctilucent clouds, also called "polar mesospheric clouds," are "found in the upper atmosphere as spectacular displays that are most easily seen just after sunset," according to a NASA statement published earlier in September. "The clouds are the highest clouds in Earth's atmosphere, located in the mesosphere around 50 miles altitude."

Normally, noctilucent clouds are not visible to the naked eye and can only be seen when illuminated by sunlight below the horizon. The launch took place at 7:46 p.m. Saturday, just as the sun was setting for the day.

Observation stations on the ground and in satellites will track the artificial noctilucent clouds created by the rocket for months, NASA said.

"Data collected during the experiment will provide insight into the formation, evolution, and properties of noctilucent clouds, which are typically observed naturally at high latitudes.

"In addition to the understanding of noctilucent clouds, scientists will use the experiment to validate and develop simulation models that predict the distribution of dust particles from rocket motors in the upper atmosphere," the NASA statement said.

Editor's Note: There were quite a number of reports of seeing a "cone shaped" light in the sky, ending in a mist. It would have been nice if NASA would have told the public before-hand, or did they and no one was paying attention?

If someone actually saw the launch of this rocket, I'd be very interested in hearing about it.

Alien, Or Hapless Animal



Alien, or animal? Teenagers in Panama stoned this creature to death, then went back later and took photos. People are asking, "What is it?"








It appears to be a Two-Toed Sloth, which are pale tan in color and are found (you guessed it) in Panama. If you removed all the hair, killed it and tossed it into the water for a while, it would look just like that image in the photo/video.

No alien here, just a poor hapless sloth. Shame on those boys.

Religion vs. UFOs


Why do some people 'believe' that aliens have been visiting our planet, while others do not? And why are skeptics so adamant that those who do believe, are delusional, or downright idiots?

The majority of earth's citizenry believes in a higher power, though a minute few have ever seen god/gods? Is it so much easier to believe in a god, than in an alien from another planet?

Belief is a strange notion, a matter of "faith". If "seeing is believing", then why would more people believe in a god and not in aliens who are supposedly constantly making themselves visible? You don't hear too many skeptics bemoaning people of "faith", likely due to the fact that religious beliefs are more accepted, though religious beliefs have caused more wars than not.

When our astronauts stepped foot on the moon, were they not aliens to that world? When our small robotic rovers were sent to Mars, were they not from an alien race, one not of planet Mars?

I often wonder how someone can be so closed minded to the possibility, that aliens do exist and have visited Earth, yet blindly accept the existence of God. Surely, the thought of not being the only sentient beings in this vast universe, is enough to excite the most rigid of thinkers.

A July 2008 poll conducted by Scripps Howard News Service and Ohio University, revealed that one in every 12 Americans had seen a mysterious object in the sky that might have been a visitor from another world, while nearly one in every five personally knows someone who has seen an unidentified flying object.

In 2004, a poll showed that 92% of Americans believe in God but only 34% believe in UFOs.

I do believe in a higher power but I also think your chances of seeing a UFO are much better.

Back away from your computer screen, put down your I Pod, step outside and look, really look at the world around you. In all the Earth and sky's beauty, you'll see God... and you'll also probably see a UFO or two.

Cloud-like Boomerang UFO Seen In Bellville, Texas


Date/Time: 15 September at 10:15 p.m.
Location: Bellville, Texas

Standing in back yard observing western night sky. Conditions were clear, unlimited visibility, no clouds in the sky. Temperature 69 deg. Wind O, humidity 96 percent. Observed star low to the west about 10 degrees above the horizon. The star seemed to be changing from silver light to red light.

I went in the house and brought back my binoculars which are military surplus, unknown magnification. I laid the binoculars on top of my pickup bed and was able to see the object in a steady state.

The light was also appearing to change colors through the binoculars and was a great distance away. Size was slightly smaller than Venus.

I went back in the house and looked up the current position of mars, thinking that was what I had seen. Learning that mars is not in the west, and not visible at that time of evening, I went back outside. The object had disappeared.

I continued to observe the western sky quadrant I am able to see, (light pollution, trees, and buildings are present). After about 15-20 minutes I saw what looked like a rapidly moving small cloud approaching from the North at 3 O clock position.

When the cloud was directly above my position it reminded me of a moving searchlight illuminating the bottom of a cloud layer. As the object/cloud moved on to the South I was able to see more details.

The object/cloud was very dim, no lights at all and no sound. Elevation to the object/cloud was approximately 5000 feet, boomerang shape and wing span was about 400 feet. Wing width was 50-80 feet.

There was some taper of the wings from center to tip, the center was probably about 1/3 greater than the tip width. There appeared to be several alternating bands of grey cloudy to dark sky bands that were ahead of the wings starting about halfway out on the leading edge of the wings, curving around the tips, and extending back past the trailing wing tip edges. This gave the impression that the wing tips were extended backwards for quite a distance, but I think that was an illusion due to the bands of cloud flowing around the wing tips.

The object/cloud was obscured by a tree as it continued to move and I did not see any further details. I continued to watch the sky thinking that I might see something else, and also thinking that if what I saw was indeed a searchlight illuminating a thin cloud that I would see it again. This did not happen.

If this was a searchlight (such as an airport beacon), the airport would have to be due South of my location. To my knowledge there is no airport in that direction. Duration of this sighting as described above was approximately 30 seconds.

The object/cloud moved in a straight line, no variation in course and no apparent change in altitude. I have a sketch done with Autocad in an attempt to demonstrate the alternating bands of cloud seen flowing around the wing tips on this object, I am unable to attach the document to this report.

Orbs Seen in a Texas Thunderstorm


Sept. 2, 2009, 10:02 p.m., Breckenridge, TX- A storm was approaching from the North/Northwest. I had been watching the flashes of lightning through my north facing living room window, so I decided to take some video.

I took a minute or so of video through my living room door, then stopped while I waited for the lightning to intensify and get closer. While I was waiting, I thought I saw a dark sphere in one of the flashes, with what appeared to be a much larger, darker form below, both inside and just above the bottom of the clouds that were producing rain and lightning.

At this point, the storm was just North of the highway, that is a block North of my location. I figured it was just a darker portion of clouds and dismissed the thought. I began again, taking a couple more minutes of video, then went outside and stood in the driveway near my car, where I took a bit more video. I decided to go back in when I felt a tingling sensation, which at the time I thought might just be a chill. Whatever it was, it made the hairs on my arm stand up.

Later, I did some video capture and decided to use one of the photos as my desktop background. After doing so, I was sitting in the chair with my laptop when I noticed something strange about the photo. Two orbs showed up, with what appears to be something below inside the cloud, somewhat disc shaped, yet hidden.

What is even more strange, is that the next day, my car wouldn't start, the battery was dead. It had been working before the storm. After hooking the battery to the charger over night, the next morning it was still dead. This was was an extended life battery, with a 2 year replacement warranty.

A mechanic checked the electrical wiring on the car and there was no problem with the system. He agreed that the battery was completely dead but had no clue as to cause. It could simply have bad battery but it had been in use since April, 2008, with no problems.

Something seemed to completely drain and fry that battery and the only thing I can think of, is the tingling sensation I felt when I was near the car during the approaching storm. I don't know if there is any correlation but it was certainly strange.

Black Triangle UFO Seen Over Fort Worth


Date/Time: 15 September, 2009
Location: Fort Worth, Texas

So last night I was outside talking on my phone and laying on the trunk of my car looking straight up at the sky. It's partly cloudy but you can still see stars, especially overhead.

Suddenly something caught my eye moving from behind a cloud that was in the northern part of the sky. I turned to focus on the object and for the first few seconds I couldn't make out what it was, only that it was an object traveling from north to south, when it got directly over head I could see that it was a huge black triangle, except that the back part of the triangle was concave toward the front point. All black except for the dim light that it produced from the center front middle of the under belly.

The dim light was what had originally caught my eye when I first noticed the object, it was completely silent as it glided overhead. I watched it for a few more seconds until I lost sight of it in cloud cover as the craft traveled south in a straight line same altitude.

I'm not sure how high it was, only that it was flying a lot higher than say a Cesna airplane but not as high as a commercial airliner. I'm not sure how fast it was traveling, only that it took about to 6-8 seconds to fly over from one side of the sky to the other, but that is including the clouds that were on the horizons. It was about the size of what a half dollar would look like if it were in your hand with your arm fully extended toward the sky. It was big, it was fast, it was silent and it was an awesome experience!!!

Witness Sees UFO While On A Cruise Near Puerto Rico


There have been a number of reported sightings of UFOs and USOs (Unidentified Submerged Objects), over or in ocean waters. The area of the Atlantic known as the Bermuda Triangle, has been a hotbed for UFO/USO sightings. The number of sightings there and elsewhere, are increasing. Here is but one recently filed report.


6/23/2007
I was on a cruise - a few hundred miles from Puerto Rico. I saw it on two or three consecutive nights. The object hovered and rotated in the sky. The lights were flashing as the object slowly changed shape. It was definitely NOT a plane. It was too close to be a satellite and was definitely not the space station. I'm still at a loss for what this was even 2 years later.

"THE FOURTH KIND"- A New UFO Movie Coming Soon














Press Release-
'The Fourth Kind' movie trailer. In 1972, a scale of measurement was established for alien encounters. When a UFO is sighted, it is called an encounter of the first kind. When evidence is collected, it is known as an encounter of the second kind. When contact is made with extraterrestrials, it is the third kind. The next level, abduction, is the fourth kind. This encounter has been the most difficult to document...until now.

Structured unlike any film before it, The Fourth Kind is a provocative thriller set in modern-day Nome, Alaska, where—mysteriously since the 1960s—a disproportionate number of the population has been reported missing every year. Despite multiple FBI investigations of the region, the truth has never been discovered.

Here in this remote region, psychologist Dr. Abigail Tyler (Milla Jovovich) began videotaping sessions with traumatized patients and unwittingly discovered some of the most disturbing evidence of alien abduction ever documented.

Using never-before-seen archival footage that is integrated into the film, The Fourth Kind exposes the terrified revelations of multiple witnesses. Their accounts of being visited by alien figures all share disturbingly identical details, the validity of which is investigated throughout the film.

Studio: Universal Pictures
Release: November 6, 2009
Director: Olatunde Osunsanmi
Writer: Olatunde Osunsanmi, Terry Lee Robbins
Cast: Milla Jovovich, Will Patton, Elias Koteas
Genre: Suspense, Thriller

Alcohol blamed in Nome mystery

UNSOLVED DEATHS: FBI sees no serial killer, cites drinking, exposure.

TOM KIZZIA / Anchorage Daily News
Published: June 30th, 2006

A string of disappearances and mysterious deaths of Native villagers visiting Nome was not the work of a serial killer, an FBI analysis of the cases has concluded.

An FBI study of 24 missing persons and suspicious death cases assembled by Nome police said excessive alcohol consumption and a harsh winter climate were common ties in many of the cases. In nine of the cases, where no bodies were ever found, state and local investigators said they will continue to search for new leads.

The FBI conclusions were summarized at a news conference Thursday morning in Nome called by the Native nonprofit Kawerak Inc., which has been working with law enforcement and other Nome-area Native and civic groups on the disappearances.

A list of victims' names in 20 cases was released by local officials last year in an effort to solicit information from the public. Nome police said they plan to talk with families of the victims in the coming weeks before releasing an updated list of names and an explanation of what they think happened.

Of the 24 cases, three are being left alone at the request of families, two had already been prosecuted criminally, and one was a snowmachine accident, said Nome Police Chief Craig Moates. In nine of the cases, a re-examination of available evidence produced "definitive outcomes, " Moates said. He said alcohol was a common factor in those cases.

Though Moates offered no details Thursday, some of the dead are known to have died of exposure or from falling off a jetty into the cold water of the Snake River. Questions had been raised about the possibility of muggers preying on drunks. As concern spread in Seward Peninsula villages, the unsolved cases became a top priority two years ago for the region's Native leaders, including the Norton Sound Health Corp. and the Bering Straits Native Corp.

"No evidence exists to support the conclusion that a serial killer has been targeting Native people in Nome, " Moates said Thursday, summarizing the FBI conclusions. The FBI cited the lack of trauma shown on recovered bodies, the four-decades-plus time span of the cases, and the absence of a common suspect, Moates said. More>>

Editor's Note: "Lack of trauma shown on recovered bodies, the four-decades-plus time span of the cases, and the absence of a common suspect." I believe it is possible that some may have been abducted. what better way to hide the fact, that people have been taken against their will, then cover it up? As if that is new. We will probably never know for sure.

As for the movie, I'll reserve judgment until I see it.

Brownsville, TX - Two UFO Sightings In 2 Days

Brightly lit, moving objects have been seen and reported near Brownsville, Texas, by two separate eye witnesses, one being in law enforcement.

September 12, 2009 at 5:45 a.m.-

On the above mentioned date and time, I was on duty outside my facility. I work for the local law enforcement agency. I'm always stargazing because there have been a lot of activity recently.

Last night, I noticed what appeared to be a very high altitude object moving from north to south at about my 12 o'clock position or directly overhead. I would estimate it to be flying at about 30K feet. Very small dim, no strobes or anti-collision lights.

Soon after I noticed it, there was a flash in front of this dim object. The flash took shape of an even bigger sphere, I would calculate it to be 5 times as big and brighter then the first. It started moving away from the first dim object also in a southern direction.

As soon as it was visible, 4 seconds later in a flash it was gone. The first dim object continued on
its southern direction until it was not visible. A minute later, the first dim object was seen moving back north in its original flight path that it took going south. Still moving very fast.

Within 2 minutes it was no longer visible. 40 minutes later when I arrived home, again I noticed this dim object kind of flying in a skipping motion or zig zagging motion from north to south over again its original flight path.

Not reported a month ago, my wife and I saw a dim object no collision lights following a bigger sphere from South to North directly overhead at about 20 thousand or so feet. Very high altitude craft.

The first object or sphere was very bright and moving extremely fast. It covered roughly from the 9 o'clock position to the 3 o'clock position overhead in less than 3 minutes.

The second object much dimmer was a bit slower, it made a 90 degree right bank then 3 seconds later again a 90 degree left bank to its original course north. We did not see either again.


September 14, 2009 at Midnight-

Bright star, thought it might be Venus or Saturn, then it started to fade and split. Smaller bright object moved to what appeared to be down and west of larger object which faded away, possibly up.

Google Runs Crop Circle Logo In Pacific Region Countries









Examiner.com- Google has put up a special “crop circle” logo in some Pacific region countries. Google Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea, and Australia all have up the special logo today, September 15th, which features a UFO hovering over a field with the Google logo spelled out.

Each country that Google used the special logo had it linked to a search for that country's word for “crop circle”. In Japan, the link went to a search for “mystery circles.” However, not all Pacific countries are using the logo. Google Vietnam, Singapore, and Philippines, for instance, just had up their standard front page.

About the Google Crop Circle logo

The special Google logo specifically features the UFO over a field that is being harvested by what looks like a tractor. Interestingly, while the ‘g’ ‘o’ ‘o’ ‘g’ and ‘e’ of Google look like classic crop circles, the tractor has carved out the ‘l’. At the same time the name of the logo is goog_e.gif.

The image comes about 10 days after Google.com had a UFO logo on its main international page that linked to a search for “unexplained phenomena.” In the case of that logo, one of the ‘o’ ‘s was being abducted, and the image name was go_gle.gif.

Why Google is using the crop circle logo has yet to be explained. If you have any guesses, let us know!

"The Other Roswell"- The Recounting Of A Texas UFO Crash



(Click on image for larger view.)




In 1955, USAF Colonel (ret.) Robert B. Willingham says he chased a UFO across West Texas in his jet fighter - and saw the object crash along the Rio Grande River near Del Rio, Texas. In this 2008 video, he gives his dramatic eyewitness account.




The Del Rio, Texas UFO Crash is a 1955 UFO case reported by a former jet pilot in the United States Air Force Reserve, Robert Burton Willingham, who lives near Wichita Falls, Texas. While flying a North American Aviation F-86 Sabre jet on a bomber escort mission over West Texas, Willingham observed a large, highly-luminous orb moving toward him from the northwest at about 2,000 miles per hour. At one point, he saw it execute a sudden 90-degree turn without slowing. As the object moved past his aircraft, Willingham gave chase and later saw it fall to the ground and crash near Del Rio, Texas. After switching planes, Willingham returned to the crash site later in the day and was confronted by Mexican soldiers who were guarding the wreckage while waiting for the arrival of the U.S. Air Force. Before being forced to leave, Willingham observed the crashed object at close range and also took a metallic UFO fragment with him.

Although not as well known as the Roswell UFO Incident, this case has appeared in numerous UFO books and journals. It also shares some similarities with the Coyame UFO Incident of 1974, which reportedly also occurred along the Texas-Mexico border and involved both the U.S. and Mexican militaries.

“We heard on the radio that an object had been picked up by radar somewhere in the northwest. It was spotted by the DEW (Distant Early Warning Line radar system) in Canada. They said it was going very fast and was moving our way,” Willingham stated during a 2008 interview with UFO researchers Noe Torres and Ruben Uriarte.

During his initial sighting, Willingham and his fellow aviators were warned of the fast-moving object heading their way, saw it zoom past them at a speed of about 2,000 miles per hour, and then observed a maneuver that seemed to rule out conventional aircraft. “It suddenly made a 90-degree turn to the right, still going 2,000 miles an hour. At that point, I knew this was not any aircraft that we had, or that anyone on Earth had,” Willingham said.

Later, after the object crashed into the sandy soil just south of the Rio Grande River near Langtry, Texas and broke up into several pieces, Willingham got a much better chance to observe it close up. He later described it as a flat saucer shaped object about 20 or 25 feet in diameter, with a dome-shaped section on top, measuring about 10 or 15 feet in diameter. The skin of the object was metallic silver and the chunks of metallic debris he later examined at the crash site, suggested to Willingham that the object was not of Earthly manufacture.

Aside From UFOs- Strange Things That Fall From The Sky


Look Out Below!

Aside from rain (and hail), birds, planes, meteors... and UFOs, here are just a few things that have reportedly fallen from the sky.

Editor's Note: This is a shortened list for brevity's sake.


Most recently (Sunday, Sept. 6, 2009), tiny, clear, soft and pliable spheres, which fell onto a roof
and garden in Wichit, Phuket, Thailand. Source

June, 2009, Japan- Fish, frogs and tadpoles take a tumble from the skies over Japan. Well, it was the start of their rainy season... Story here

In 2007 and 2008, "Red Rain" fell from the skies over Kerala, India and some are now considering it as a possible case of extraterrestrial life form.
For a somewhat scientific report of this anomaly, read this.

In 2007, huge chunks of ice fall from a clear blue sky in Colorado. Story here

July, 2007, worms dropped from the sky in Jennings, Louisiana.

A Few Past Events:
In August of 2001, Wichita, Kansas experienced an unexplained rain of corn husks.

In May 1981 frogs fell from the sky over Naphilion, a city in southern Greece. The species of frog that fell was native to North Africa.

In 1956 in Chilatchee, Alabama a couple watched as a small dark cloud formed in the sky, then released its contents of various fish. The cloud turned white then disappeared. The fish were alive.

On September 7, 1953 frogs and toads fell from the sky over Leicester, Massachusetts.

On October 23, 1947, fish fell over the town of Marksville, Louisiana. Although it was a bit foggy that day it wasn't raining and there were no reports of storms, or tornadoes in the vicinity at the time of the incident.

May 15, 1900, fish fell on the town of Olneyville, Rhode Island.

In November 1896, early morning brought a deluge of dead birds that fell from the sky over Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The sky was clear. The birds included wild ducks, woodpeckers and many others.

In 1894, Jellyfish dropped down on Bath, England.

In 1881, during a thunderstorm in Worcester, England, tons of periwinkles and hermit crabs fell from the sky.

In 1877, several alligators about a foot in length, fell on a farm in South Carolina. According to a
report in The New York Times, the alligators were alive, unharmed and crawling around.
That same year, a rain of living snakes fell over the southern part of Memphis, Tennessee.

In August of 1870, a shower of water lizards hit Sacremento, California. The water lizards were alive when they hit the ground.

August 1, 1869, an unidentified animal (thought to be a cow), came down in pieces over California. A similiar incident happened in 1876, when pieces of some unidentified animal rained down on Olympian Springs, Bath County, Kentucky.

In 1861, Singapore saw a rain of fish from the sky.

Throughout the years, strange objects, animals, fish, birds and frogs, have been swept up in tornadic winds, to be deposited elsewhere. However, water spouts and tornadoes cannot account for every oddity that falls from the sky.

It's no wonder that Chicken Little thought the sky was falling.

UFO Approaches Couple on The Interstate

Editor's Note: This report was interesting, so I thought I'd pass it along.
Only punctuation and spelling have been corrected.



Midnight, September 4, 2009-
South Carolina, on the Interstate.

My wife and I were coming back home to Georgia after visiting family in South Carolina. We were driving on the interstate, it was about 9 p.m.. I was looking up in the sky and saw some small lights from a distance. I told my wife and she said that it was a plane.

Well all of a sudden, the multicolored light object we thought was a plane got huge in a matter of seconds and was coming towards us. It seemed like forever but it probably lasted about 10 seconds. It looked just like a disc, like the old UFO pics you see. The lights were orange, white and red.

I am very sure that when it headed towards us, that it was not a plane! My wife said, "Oh my God, Chris look!" and we both were terrified. I just stared at it and then all of a sudden, it vanished. I have always been the skeptic when it comes to "UFOs" but there was no denying this.
