Report:
I was not going to report this. I fear sounding crazy however I was told it should be reported. So here goes. On night of 12/19/12 I was sitting on my couch talking on my cell phone to my dad. He lives in Co. It was 11:33 pm. As we were talking I was facing a nw window over dinning rm table. All of the suddin the dinning rm had a bright red light shining in through slats of blinds which were closed a the light shone so bright it lit up dining rm. I was trying to figure out what it could be. So I wS half listening to my dad and more focused on this light. Thenn the back door close to kittchen between dining rm. started to shake violently and the knobb started to rattle very fast. We have a metal door...btw. Then I heard my dog who is a big dog half great dane half yellow lab ran onto back porch. What I haerd next still sends shiberd up my spine. I heard groweling, then I heard this horrible noise..inhuman horrible loud sounnd I just can not describe. With my dad still on the phone I screamed. Threw the phone and . I ran into my bf and my bedroom. Now mind you I screamed so loud I lost my voice for 4 days after. I stood over him screaming and he didnt wake up. Finally I jumped on him and he woke up. I didnt knw how to explain to him what had happened so I just told him someone was trying to break in. He grabed his shot gun. As we walked out of room i noticed light was gone and no noise. I pucked up ph. to hear my dad repeating hello? I told him same thi.g I told my bf . He told me to call police. I did. Our dog was on back pourch when we looked out kitchen window. Mike wenr out and metal dog food bowl had been moved in front of back door. The police arrived and could not find anything. But the cop said something strange. said he talked to our neighbor #60 and they had seen lights over our direection. We li e in country. After he left we could not figure out what he was talking about. My bf thought he had said he wad g doing 60 mph and talked to a neighbor. we heard different things. Anyway there is no #60 out here anyways. After all commotion we went to bed. One more important point our dog would not come back onto back pourch. Next night after my bf got hm from work he asked where the dogwas I said I thought he was out thete. We went looki.g for him. We found him and haf to force him onto baack pourch once in the house we noticed doig haf scratches and burn makrks on his nose. Then bf went on back pouch and came in and said the door is dentteddented I saidd yeah right. I went out and there were wave like dents in the door.

Lights Again In Stephenville 12/01/2012

MUFON Case # 44818
Location: Stephenville, Texas
Date of Event:     12/01/2012
Time of Event:  12:00 UTC
Viewing Distance: Over One Mile
Object Flight Path: Stationary
Object Shape: Circle
Summary: Lights appeared in order across the sky then vanished. Definitely not an airplane.


Report:
Outside at the ranch working in the garage. Looked out and noticed 2 off-yellow lights in the sky. 1st thought it was one of our charter planes, but the light vanished and two other larger lights appeared next to each other a little higher. One light would vanish and another one would appear next to it. It spread across the sky then vanished. Clear night. I was downwind. No sound and there was nothing there after the lights vanished. My uncle, who has seen the lights out here before, saw them that night too. I knew it was not a plane. I used to sell planes and my father is a pilot. I quickly realized this was something off. I was amazed by what I saw. A week later my dad saw something similar, except they were multiple color. Were horizontal, went verticle, and them vanished. Something strange is going on in Stephenville.

     *

Stephenville is in the Brownwood MOA (FAA definition of Military Operations Area), so could people actually be seeing flares being dropped by jets?

"But there was no sound."  The flares ejected by the jets can be seen for many miles, thus witnesses may see the flares but not see or hear the jets, unless they are within a very few miles of the operation.

I'm not stating definitively, that what the witness saw were flares but it is a possibility.  -Sunny

Flying Cryptids: Witness Sees "Strange Flying Bird" Over Birmingham, Alabama


Artist rendering- SW/LITS


I received an email from a witness in Birmingham, Alabama, who had a strange encounter with an unknown flying creature, while out walking his dogs.

*

Subject: Strange Flying Bird
Location: Birmingham, Alabama
December 27, 2012 (evening)


I feel silly writing to you,but what I saw tonight has me a little shaken. Tonight, while walking our two dogs, I looked up at the moon and saw a giant bat like bird. I say bat like because of its pointed wings. It was huge! My initial thoughts were that no bird could possibly be that large and that high up in the sky. If I had not been staring up at the moon I probably would have missed it completely. The color appeared black or brown. It was dark in color. Easily missed in the dark sky.

This has freaked me out so badly that I've been googling all sorts of stuff that it could have been:(

The next evening he wrote:

It was larger than a man. It was more like the size of a small plane. It was huge! I couldn't tell if it had a head or tail. What I noticed was the wings looked like bat wings. Almost pointed like and webbed. I would have missed it if it had not soared by the moon. It was very fast.

I looked and looked tonight I have to admit I did walk the dogs a little faster than usual. I'm still a little spooked.


*

Please note that the witness did not give me the exact time, so I am not sure if it was before midnight on the 27th, or after midnight on the 28th, that this sighting occurred.   One thing is certain,  whatever this was it has the witness on edge.

There have been a number of sightings of Pterosaurs / Pterodactyls, also known as a Ropen.  These sightings range all around the North American continent, from Canada to Texas.  They also been seen in Hawaii, Papua New Guinea and Cuba.


What is it that people are witnessing?  Did these creatures survive the extinction of the dinosaurs and later, the Ice Age?  Or could they be extra-dimensional, coming into our reality from another time, another world?

From Pterodactyls; flying Manta Rays; Jellyfish; Thunderbirds and flying humanoids, to Moth Men; people are seeing not only unidentified craft but also flying creatures. 

I've seen some strange things myself, so I certainly can't laugh this off as vivid imaginations.  So, what are these creatures?  Maybe someday we will know for sure.  For now, we can only speculate.

Here are some related links and below, you will see two reports from previous witnesses.  If you have a sighting, don't hesitate to report it.  Thanks!  -Sunny

Reported to LITS in July, 2011:

Bat-winged creature seen by family in Washington State

Depiction by SW/LITS


I received an email from a witness in Washington State, who claims to have seen some type of flying creatures that made a meal of their cats. 

Now normally I would suspect the usual culprits, eagles, owls, etc., but the witness claims these creatures have no feathers, that their wings are bat-like and leathery, with claws on the upper area of the wings, allowing them to cling to trees.



In the first email, the witness reported:
We live in the Pacific Northwest on many acres of mostly tree covered land with a creek.  We have seen and heard a strange nocturnal, bat-like creature.  This thing is huge, light grey, skin with no fur, feathers or scales.  It silently swoops down at you with giant bat wings.  It makes a sound like a jungle monkey or bird, thus we refer to it as the monkey bird. 

We keep our chickens and goats, small dogs and cats safely housed at night, however two of our cats who sneaked out one night onto the roof disappeared without a trace of fur, blood or any evidence of what exactly happened.  They wouldn't run away, and our outdoor watch dogs don't allow any coyotes or ground traveling
predators anywhere near us. 

There were two of them together and they seemed fearless of me when they swooped down at me more than once and returned way up to the top of the highest trees.  I couldn't get a look at the faces or eyes, mainly the huge grey bat-wings approximately 4' span .are what I could see.  They seem to show up every summer always after dusk anytime through the night.  Locals don't seem to know about them.  I might ask the local Native American Indian tribes to see if they know anything about these creatures. 

Do you know of anyone else who might know what these things are?   My brother and I saw another weird bat-like creature two summers ago that was also quite bizarre yet not like these huge ones.  We were riding our bikes at dusk and this black guinea pig sized thing with bat wings with holes all through the wings ran across the dirt road in front of us and under a bush.  We don't know anyone who has seen anything like that either, but we DID see it. 

We see regular little, common bats all of the time after dusk so we know what they are like.  We know owls, hawks, eagles and all of the normal flying creatures around here and these others are definitely out of the ordinary.


After talking with Lon Strickler of Phantoms & Monsters, who suggested it could be a Eurasian Eagle Owl, I pressed the witness for more information and told the witness that it could be as Lon suggested. 


Eurasian Eagle Owl (Bubo bubo)



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurasian_Eagle-owl








The witness reported back:
Thank you for checking with your colleague.  Are the owl wings shaped like bat wings?  Do they cling to the sides of the trees?  Do they make a sound like "Hooooowhahhhhhh, aaahooooowahhhh!  with the wah like the rolling of your tongue?   Also the skin on the chest and wings was grey, mottled with some brownish color like a Mexican hairless dogs skin, and it had like visible blood veins kind of like protruding on the skin area. 

Where can we find a picture of the Asian eagle owl and find out what it sounds like?  These might be moulting or sick or something.  We would love to solve the mystery, and know more about them.  Please let us know if you find anymore info.  Thank you again.



I wrote back and passed along a link that has a number of different owl sounds.
 http://www.owlpages.com/sounds.php

I also said: We have to rule out the plausible explanations.  If it isn't an owl, then what we have is an "unknown".  If you can get any locals to talk about it, they may give you some clues.  I will do some research but I need to know at least your general location.  The Pacific Northwest is a large area.  I lived a year in Tacoma (Ft. Lewis) but never even saw an owl.  Meanwhile, if you find out anything or can get a photo of these things, please let me know!


Witness wrote back:
Thanks again for your help and research.  It is truly appreciated.  We are [location removed by SW/LITS] in a large forested area with a huge creek running all through it. 

We looked through and listened to all of the owl/eagle info and enjoyed it very much.  I can say with certainty that these things were definitely not owls, eagles, vultures or anything like them.  I guess no one would believe us unless they saw them and heard them.  These are real. 

They have huge bat wings with the claw type thing on the top of the wing that helps them clutch the tree.  It is true that they don't seem to flap like a regular bat would.  They quietly swoop and glide.  They sound like those african jungle monkeys and you can see skin, no feathers, scales etc. 

I'm sure these have got to be categorized as unknown.  Maybe someone has been doing some weird genetic experiments with wildlife and releasing them to see what the survival rate will be.  Maybe an environmental mutation. 

We will try to ask others who spend time after dusk in the forests, (if we can find anyone like that these days) whether or not they have seen or heard anything like this.  We will let you know right away if we learn anymore about this. 

Have a wonderful, safe 4th of July.  Such a pleasure to communicate with you.

A witness claims to have seen and taken a photo, of what appeared to be a sting ray type object, possibly a living creature, over a street in New York.

This report was originally submitted to MUFON and is presented here, as is, with no corrections.


MUFON Case # 43191
Location: New York, NY
Date of Sighting: 2012-10-10
Time of Sighting: 3:35
Shape: Triangle, Manta Ray (Square, Rectagular)
Viewing Distance: 21-100 Feet, 101-500 Feet
Summary: Not provided


Report:
Here is what happened, normally I am not home during on weekdays during working hours, however my childcare (nanny) was sick and I didn’t have a back-up. Anyway, we went to the boardwalk so I can run a few miles and my daughter loves being pushed in her running stroller… sorry Anyhoo, I was deciding which way I would run first, I enter the Staten Island Boardwalk on Seaview Avenue and Father Capodanno. I turned toward the east and all of a sudden from nothing to a flying object that looked like a STINGRAY it moved like a stingray, it was the same color as a stingray. To me, it appeared to have like a light green and pale pink energy around it and it also appeared DISTRESSED…. It was barely moving and I watched it until it vanished…. It didn’t fly away fast it just became invisible, or I want to say transparent with the clouds. As I mentioned it appeared distressed, and I am not the only one who thought that because the police helicopters were searching, several helicopters for a very long time… I thought I saw it again over the Verrazano bridge, but again in a second it was transparent again. I could see the energy around this thing and it was amazing… Also, as you will be able to see in the photo, there was NO plane pulling it!!!!

T'is the Season!




Well, another year is about gone and 2012 has really been a doozie.  It turned out to be the Apocalypse that wasn't.  Good thing!

UFO sightings have increased worldwide, during the past few months and it's been exciting.  Makes me wonder what 2013 will bring.

Throughout the coming New Year, I will continue to investigate the UFO/alien phenomena and keep everyone up-to-date on the latest sightings.  Please remember to include as much detail as possible, in your reports.  As always, witnesses remain anonymous.

I want to wish each and everyone a very Happy Holiday Season and a safe, prosperous and Happy 2013. 

Keep watching the skies!

All the best,

Disc seen hanging in sky over Phoenixville, PA



This report was originally submitted to MUFON.
It is presented here, unedited.





MUFON Case # 44743
Location: Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
Date of Sighting: 08/15/2004
Time of Sighting: 06:15 UTC
Object Shape:     Circle, Disc
Summary: Saw something hanging in the sky in the distance


Report:
This report is being filed by a MUFON field investigator for the witness. The witness also reported a recent UFO sighting in December 2012 (see case 44673). This earlier sighting took place about 8 years ago (circa 2004), but she is not certain about the year. It was August. Early in the morning, just before the sun rose, she looked out the bedroom window and saw something hanging in the sky in the distance. She could not tell how far away it was. It was about the size of a quarter held at arm's length. It was a perfect circle, pewter gray. She went out onto her bedroom deck to get a better look. She grabbed a camera with a zoom lens (but no film). The zoom lens was 6 inches long, and provided about a 2x image. She could see every light bulb on the object. The object had multiple series of light bulbs that flashed on and off in a sequence. First they would light up on one side, then down the other side, etc. This repeated several times. Then the face of the disk was lighting up all over in muted random manner. When that stopped, each quadrant of the disc face would light in patterns (like a mysterious code). When it was done that, a wide black line appeared from 8 to 12 and from 12 to 4 (like the two vertical legs of an "A"). It resembled an upside down V. That went out and another line appeared from 8 to 4 (like the cross-bar of an "A"). That went away and the entire disc face went into all over random muted lights. That was the end of it because this was early morning, the sun was rising, and the disk blended into the color of the sky and faded away. The witness thinks back now and realizes that it did fade away as it matched the color of the sky. It was getting less solid looking and more transparent. After a little longer, it was gone, as all she could see was empty sky. She could not tell how long this took (maybe 15 minutes). The object faded away at approximately 6:30 am. Later that day, the witness made a telephone call UFO report to William Puckett (UFOs Northwest), but she did not file a report anywhere else. One of the most interesting things about this sighting is that the witness thinks that the object may have been trying to communicate with her (or with someone else).

Chevron Lights attract jet over Allen Park. Michigan



This report was originally submitted to MUFON.
It is presented here, unedited.








MUFON Case # 44758
Location: Allen Park, Michigan
Date of Sighting: 12/22/2012
Time of Sighting: 04:00 UTC
Viewing Distance: Over One Mile
Object Features: Patterned Surface
Object Flight Path: Stationary
Object Shape:     Chevron, Disc
Summary: Cloudy look w an engineered shape having short chevron lights that hovered and became less transparent as a fighter jet fast approached it.


Report:
My friend was driving and noticed colors in the sky. He pointed them out to me bc they seemed to rest on the edge of only one big cloud, even though there were numerous clouds forming a ring around the sun. I initially thought it was a rainbow effect due to moisture in the air. Nevertheless I couldnt look away because it awed me how the lights were chevron & vertical in pattern and had distinctive edges on the top and bottom giving it a height much shorter than a rainbow is in length. We were traveling on allen road away from oakwood blvd toward outer drive when we noticed it. We turned right onto outer drive and the lights were ahead of us on our left side as we drove on outer drive. As we approached it, we noticed a fighter jet flying at high speed directly at the cloud w lights. The jet entered the scene about 2 minutes after we first spotted the strange lights. The lights were partially transparent or had an intensity less than they did when the jet was nearest the ufo. As we drove closer, the lights became more solid and were nothing like a rainbow effect at all. Just as the fighter jet was within hundreds of feet of the ufo, it vanished! The jet hung around for another ten seconds or so before it flew away at high speed again.

Meteoric treasure found at Sutter's Mill, home of the California Gold Rush

Dramatic Sutter's Mill meteorite proves rare scientific treasure


The fireball that streaked through the skies on April 22 and exploded with the equivalent of four kilotons of TNT and fell around Sutter’s Mill, birthplace of the California Gold Rush. Scientists and meteor hunters alike quickly hunted down a few of the fallen fragments just before rain hit, allowing them an unprecedented look at the most pristine sample of a rare type of carbon-rich asteroid yet found.

Now a study published in Friday’s edition of the journal Science shows that all that hustle paid off. The Sutter's Mill meteor shows chemical evidence of a complex formation history -- evidence that would have been wiped out by the rain, said lead author Peter Jenniskens, a meteor astronomer at the NASA Ames Research Center and the SETI Institute in Mountain View.

Meteorites are chunks of the asteroids that fall to Earth, and they give planetary scientists a look back into the solar system’s history. Scientists think these far-out bits of rocky debris may have originally brought organic molecules, the building blocks for life, to Earth.

The Sutter’s Mill meteorite, which came in at a blazing 28.6 kilometers per second -- nearly 64,000 miles per hour -- weighed roughly 44 tons just before burning up and exploding in the Earth’s atmosphere. Tracked using Doppler weather radar imaging, it rained in countless pieces over an area roughly 7 kilometers by 4 kilometers, Jenniskens said.

“It was like a hailstorm of stones over gold country,” Jenniskens said.

Ordu, Turkey - Security Cameras Capture Flaming Object Over Black Sea

 

Video Link

According to the publisher of this video:
"Published Dec 13, 2012
An incredible burning object which slammed into the Black Sea, Ordu, Turkey, could possibly have been a meteorite, officials claim. Others claim it was a UFO, as sightings of unknown objects have been reported around that area for several weeks. A security camera recorded the impact and loud boom. Meteorite or UFO, as always you decide."


Note:  IMO, it looked and sounded like a meteor/bolide.   Your thoughts?  -SW

The End of the World is Nigh! No It Isn't!

Survival gear and bunker sales are through the roof and so have been the doomsday predictions.

If you manufacture or sale freeze-dried foods and water purifiers, or build underground Armageddon shelters, you must be rolling in the dough.   If the world was going to end for real, what were you planning on doing with all that money?    Never mind, toilet paper will be in short supply.

Yesterday (Dec. 19, 2012), when our solar system lined up with the center of our galaxy, you didn't even feel it, did you?   And where is Planet X (Nibiru)?   It should be filling our skies and blotting out the sun but it isn't.

The Mesoamerican "long count" and Mayan calendars never mention a world shattering disaster.   Do our own calendars predict a worlds end?   Only on April 15th (tax day).   If anything,  celebrate the fact that we will all still be here to open our presents on the 25th.

It's smart to prepare for natural disasters, I should know.   I live in what is called Tornado Alley.   I owned a home in Wichita Falls, Texas, back in April, 1979.   When the tornado hit, it ripped my home from it's foundation and splinted it into a million pieces.   Looking around on that day, at the miles of devastation, one could well imagine what the end of the world might look like.

Hey, if you were hoping for an end to Momma Earth, better luck next time.   Yeah, there will be the next doomsday and the next, etc., and those who profit from doomsday fears will again be laughing all the way to the bank.

Me, I'm preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse!  Excuse me, whilst I buff up a nice sharp edge on my katana.

Worried About the End of the World on Dec. 21? Don’t Be.

Unless you’ve buried your head in the sand—which, to be honest, would be a better use of your time—you’ve heard the world is coming to an end this Friday, Dec. 21, 2012.

OK, for those of you who are impatient and want to cut to the chase, here’s the scoop: No, it isn’t.

If you frequent online bulletin boards, fear-mongering websites, or the History Channel, you might think otherwise: It’s hard to avoid people screaming about the prophetic Maya calendar predicting global catastrophe.

And if you haven’t heard of it, then I wish I were you. Because I get email, tweets, Facebook messages, and probably smoke signals about it all the time, and have been for years. It turns out that a lot of people are concerned about these claims, despite zero evidence for them. Still, it’s worth taking a look at them, if only to assuage some fears.

"Strange object in sky"

A young boy and his uncle witness something strange in the skies over Haslet, Texas. 
This report is unedited.


MUFON Case # 44548
Haslet, TX
2012-12-13
10:15PM    


Report:
My son and his uncle was outside watching shooting stars. All if the sudden this object appeared out of no where with no tail (like a shooting star should have) and was quite brighter than anything they had seen. It went in a sharp NE direction stopped and hovered at this point my son began to take pictures with his iPhone. The object changed direction backwards. Then it hovered again for aprox 1 minute and the shot off this time leaving a u shaped cloud. My son terrified called me at work. He is 11. I told him to send me the pictured thinking it was a shooting star and I could let him know it was okay. After seeing the pictures and realizing there was no way he could have got so many pictures of a moving star I realized it may be something else. The cloud of smoke left clearly looks like it was ingaging back into space. I am (was) a non believer but these photos are sure strange.

A Look Back at Apollo 17 Moon Landing 40 Years Ago


*
Last look at Earthrise, 40 years later



By Alan Boyle

cosmiclog.nbcnews.com-
Forty years ago today, human beings took their last steps on the moon, and had their last look at Earth framed by the lunar horizon. There have been other pictures from the moon since then, of course, but they've all been seen secondhand, based on data sent back by robotic probes. No humans have seen an Earthrise like this one with their own eyes since Apollo 17's crew began their homeward journey on Dec. 14, 1972.

For Andrew Chaikin — author of "A Man on the Moon," the definitive history of the Apollo moon effort — the 40th anniversary of our lunar farewell is a cause for reflection
Continue reading

*          *          *

I'm 'dating myself' but I remember John Glenn's ride into space and then later, eagerly watched each Apollo moon landing.

Originally there were 10 scheduled Apollo moon landings.  Only 6 made it to the surface of the moon.

All 6 Manned Apollo Moon Landings
Listed names are those who actually walked on the moon.
* Apollo 11 - 20 July, 1969 (Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin)
* Apollo 12 - 19 November, 1969 (Pete Conrad, Alan Bean)
* Apollo 14 - 5 February, 1971 (Alan Shepard, Edgar Mitchell)
* Apollo 15 - 30 July, 1971 (David Scott, James Irwin)
* Apollo 16 - 20 April, 1972 (John W. Young, Charles Duke)
* Apollo 17 - 11 December, 1972 (Eugene Cernan, Harrison Schmitt)

* Apollo 13 did not land and it took heroic efforts to make it back home. An explosion in one of the oxygen tanks crippled the spacecraft during flight.  The crew were forced to orbit the Moon and return to the Earth without landing. The crew members were Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert and Fred Haise.

Apollo 18-20 were cancelled... or were they?   - SW

Triangle of Lights Streak Across Skies of Fredericksburg, Texas

*
Nestled in the Hill Country of Texas, Fredericksburg has been the location of a number of UFO sightings. 

On December 9, 2012, a parent and their 17 year old daughter observed a triangle of lights streak across the sky.

MUFON Case # 44495    
Location: Fredericksburg, TX
Date of Event: 12/09/2012
Time of Event: 8:40 pm    
Shape: Lights, Triangle
Summary: My 17 year old daughter and i witnessed something amazing


Report:
Driving home approx 8:40 pm Sunday night Dec 9.
Country road, central texas, cool weather and clear skies, I saw to my upper left, viewed through the front windshield, a bright light traveling left to right. Elevation estimated at 3000 feet, flying parallel to the ground. It was actually increasing in speed for my entire view of it. slowly increasing to an unbelievable speed, until disappearing in a brighter flash. I caught with my astonishment, what I thought was a streak, off in the direction it was traveling. I was fortunate to be coming to the top of a slight rise in the road and was afforded a great view, of the sky and the ground, and this unreal, star wars looking jump to hyper drive!!! Oh boy was that COOL whatever it was.

I have seen meteorites and knew instantly that this was something else. My 17 year old daughter, began sobbing before I could utter... D DD Did you see that? I eventually got that out, after asking her what was wrong, and reassuring her that everything was alright. She saw the same thing and for about four more seconds before i did. And she was really moved by this sighting, she began sobbing the instant she realized that it was controlled, and i think that is what shocked her. Fortunately for me, it wasnt my first time, experiencing that feeling we get, during that instant of realization, when we are seeing something so much more advanced than us. That was Cool

The four seconds that my daughter saw this she said it appeared in three different points in the sky ,one two three, close to each other., until it grew in brightness, as one point, and thats were I picked it up. wish I would have seen that too, she says the points formed a triangle.

Edit: the more I think on this, I do remember seeing a trail of light. My first view of it and my daughters, it appeared as just a blip of light. No discernible shape. and when it increased to a zipping speed, I do remember seeing a trail of bright light, , but when it disappeared, its hard to describe really. It simply disappeared, but i got the impression from the increasing speed and the direction it was maintaining, that it "punched it"
and was gone.

I feel that this was not a meteorite because of the altitude it was at. The same alt. as where I see small aircraft sometimes in the sky here. Also it changed positions, according to my daughters observations, kinda like it leaped from one position to the next, and when I initially saw it, the light appeared to be getting brighter and moving way faster, and was moving just about due east. From my left to my right, I had an unobstructed view of this Light, and the thing that shocked me, in a millesecond was the amazing speed that it attained. That freaked me out. and apparently my Daughter too. I drove for about 500 more yards and pulled over, near my mailbox, on the main road. I put the car in park and got out and looked to my right, due East. Heard and saw nothing but the night sky. My daughter was sobbing and insisted that I get back in the car, and just get home. Which I did. after i explained to her what i thought it was, she calmed down. we arrived home within five minutes discussing what we had just observed. I didnt really ask her any questions, i just listened to her. And what she said, jibed exactly with what i saw. Therefore, I concluded that this was an Unidentified Flying Object. I felt a relief that someone else had just witnessed what i did. And was especially happy that it was my Daughter, who shared this amazing sighting with me.

Triangle of Lights Over League City, TX - Nov 4, 2012



*
There have been quite a number of UFO sightings around League City and the Houston area.

I just received an emailed account, from a witness in League City, Texas. The witness wrote that they observed a triangle of lights flying quickly across the sky.

The witness was apparently 'unable' to take photos.

This report is "as is", with no corrections.


*
Sighting: Nov 4th 2012, League City, TX
Triangle of lights


"Below is an email I sent to a few friends after I was in my back yard looking through a telescope on Nov 4th 2012. Any help on what explains this would be greatly appreciated.


I was out back last night looking through my telescope around 730ish. I stopped after about 20 min and just starting looking around with my eyes trying to pick another focus point. Looking up from my right there were three moving lights, in a perfect triangle (one in the front two in the back), moving across the sky at a good speed but not fast enough to miss. It crossed my vision for a whole 5 – 7 seconds. Whatever I saw had no sound, couldn’t of been more than 10,000 feet up and had to be at least 3 times the size of a jet. It had no outline, shape or color. It was simply just three balls of light, they had no glare to them though. They just were the color of dull stars. Just bigger. The size or shape of the lights never changed and they moved perfectly in sync with each other. They disappeared from my line of sight as they moved further away."


I wrote back to the witness and said that I felt it was a triangular-shaped craft.  However, I could not say whether it was "ours", or something else.  I added that I would post the report, in hopes that other witnesses might come forward. 

The witness wrote back:


"That sounds great!

I have read into it quite a bit and have come to the same conclusion. There are too many stories that are identical to mine to put this as “space junk” or illusion, especially considering the amount of time it was in my line of sight. Oddly, I couldn’t get myself to pull my phone out and try to capture it, if it even appeared due to its faint luminosity. I was got momentarily in a frozen state of awe.  I have read of a theory that claims hyper charged plasma may cause this but what I saw wasn’t a flash of light.. It was clearly on track to a destination.

Thank you for the consideration and the quick response."

Note:  This report was submitted to MUFON.  It is presented here, as is, with no corrections.
*

MUFON Case # 44404
Location: Alvarado, Texas
Date of Event:     12/07/2012
Time of Event: 07:00 UTC
Viewing Distance: 501 Feet - 1 Mile
Sighting Duration: 00:01:00
Object Flight Path: Straight-line path
Object Shape: Circle
Summary: Silent lights


Report:
I went to my back yard to have a cigarette and in the sky I noticed an object that I assumed was an aircraft. As I observed the object I noticed it was moving far too slowly to be an aircraft. I don't think it was a helicopter because there was absolutely no noise coming from it. It was (or appeared to be) circular in shape, it had two lights one blue and the other amber. It also had a second set of lights that rotated around the craft, those lights were white, there were several of them and when one turned on the previous one would turn off. I could be mistaken but the combination of the second set of lights and the fact that this object was silent make me doubt it was a helicopter or airplane.

December 7, 2012 - Flash of Light in Houston Most Likely Bolide

*

Witnesses report bright flash in sky over Houston.

Below is a report that was submitted to
MUFON.  Below the report is a video that I received from another witness. -SW


MUFON Case # 44386
Date of Event:     12/07/2012
Time of Event:  06:45 UTC
Location: Pasadena, Texas
Viewing Distance:  20 Feet or Less
Sighting Duration: Undisclosed
Object Shape:      Flash
Weather Factors     Unknown
Summary: No UFO seen. Witness to blinding flash of light in Houston area this morning.


Report:
Between 6:45-6:50 am on 12/7/12 I saw a huge flash of white light that seemed to be at ground level as I was driving to work. It was big enough that I instinctively hit my brakes thinking something was coming at me. Once the car was stopped I looked all around me and did not see the source of the light or any activity in the area that could have been the cause. I then looked to the sky and still saw nothing except for a pretty sunrise. My car window was all the way down and there was no sound to go with the light. I started driving again and continued to look for the source in the immediate area and found none. I then thought it might have come from one of the refineries along 225 and looked there once I got to the freeway. Again, I saw no sign of what could have caused the light. I promptly forgot about the situation until a few hours later when a friend posted an article about it on Facebook. On that thread another person and I started talking about how we both saw the light at the same time. She also thought it was at ground level and not from the sky. The posted article stated that "experts" were claiming the flash came from a meteor. The other person that was posting that she saw it was almost 40 miles away from me in Richmond, TX (near Cinco Ranch, TX she said) when she saw the same flash of light.

Doomsday Looms, Scientists Concerns and LITS Prediction for 12/21/2012



Video Link
*
NASA Scientist David Morrison discusses the rumors of a doomsday in December 2012 and shows how these claims are not supported by science. This updates Morrison's earlier videos "The Truth About 2012" and "The Truth about Nibiru". Another good discussion is in the JPL video "12-21-2012 Just Another Day".

*
I'm going to go out on a limb here, making my own prediction concerning December 21, 2012.

I have to agree with David Morrison of NASA,  that there is no planet about to collide with Earth.  Albeit, there are such things are rogue planets but if one was barreling down on us from space, we would have seen it coming months ago.  And no, it isn't hiding at the South Pole!

Planet alignment is an astronomical novelty but it does not herald the end of the world, nor does the Earth's alignment with the center of our galaxy.   In the 4 billion or so years that Earth has been spinning around the sun, it's tilted, wobbled, the magnetic field has changed, the sun has belched solar flares and gee, the Earth is still here.

Disasters happen.  The earth is an active, live planet,  subject to all manners of internal as well as external forces, such as lunar and solar activity.  Most people no longer live in caves and have this new device called a laptop, iPad or smart phone, so word does get around a lot faster than it used to (i.e., Pony Express).

An alien invasion isn't imminent;  the only lifeforms we really need to fear are ourselves and our own selfish needs. I can almost here the aliens "out there", discussing the chaos on Earth. "Can you believe this crap?  They have a good thing and all they want to do is screw it up!"

Even the Mayans themselves reject any notion of the world's end on 12/21/2012.  At a ceremony in Cuba, Mayan sage Pedro Celestino Yac Noj burned seeds and fruits to mark the end of the old calender. He is quoted as saying, "The 21st is for giving thanks and gratitude and the 22nd welcomes the new cycle, a new dawn."

My prediction is that you will wake up to a new day on December 22nd, realizing that you only have 2 days left to buy Christmas presents and taxes will still be due on April 15, 2013.   You've spent your life savings on a 3 bedroom luxury bunker and a 50,000 gallon water tank, buried somewhere in Nevada.   Good luck finding it in 5 feet of snow!

You will also realize that you now have to deal with a 10 year supply of toilet paper; several cases of batteries, MREs (meals ready to eat),  beans, rice, powdered milk and enough ammo to start and finish a small war.  Don't worry, there is always another doomsday prediction waiting on the horizon.  You are in luck!  Some of that freeze dried food has a shelf life of 25 years!

It's the end of the world as we know it: panic spreads ahead of Mayan prophecy

Katy, Texas Resident Observes Bright Light Ascend into Space





I recently received this emailed report:

Location: Katy, Texas
Date/Time: 12/02/2012 9:00 PM
Object description: Bright light


Report:
This Sunday evening I was in my back yard getting some fresh air.  A bright light caught my attention.  It looked like a plane with a spot light under it.  I thought it was flying very low for such a big plane.  It was dark so I could only see the light clearly but I could make out some detail besides the light. It was definitely  some kind of craft.  At this point I thought I was looking at an airplane.

Suddenly the light intensified and started gaining altitude at an unbelievable rate.  As it pulled away the light got smaller until it was just a pinpoint of light and disappeared.   From the moment the light intensified to the point that the light was no longer visible took about two seconds.

I looked online yesterday to see if the where any launches at the space center but saw none.   In my opinion even something launched by NASA could not accelerate and climb at such a fast speed.

I wasn't shocked by it at first because I figured there was an explanation for it, but after checking on the NASA site and giving it more thought I feel I had a real UFO experience.

There was only one light.  Probably about 10 times the size of Venus and about twice as bright.  Viewing time was 20 seconds or so.  It took 2 seconds to fly away.

Voyager 1 Enters Magnetic Highway, AKA the Last Step to Interstellar Space

NASA scientists say Voyager 1 could enter interstellar space anywhere from months to a couple of years from now

NASA's Voyager 1 is traveling through the last leg of its journey before entering interstellar space.

Voyager 1, which was launched into space in 1977 to eventually explore interstellar space and become the most distant human-made object, has reached a region that NASA scientists are calling a magnetic highway. This highway consists of charged particles where the sun's magnetic field lines are connected to interstellar magnetic field lines.

This area is still considered part of our heliosphere, which is a bubble of charged particles around the sun, because the direction of the magnetic field lines has not changed. The direction of these lines will change when Voyager 1 enters interstellar space, and scientists believe the magnetic highway is the last stretch before finally making it to interstellar space.

"Although Voyager 1 still is inside the sun's environment, we now can taste what it's like on the outside because the particles are zipping in and out on this magnetic highway," said Edward Stone, Voyager project scientist based at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena. "We believe this is the last leg of our journey to interstellar space. Our best guess is it's likely just a few months to a couple years away. The new region isn't what we expected, but we've come to expect the unexpected from Voyager."

What will our little 'messenger of peace' find out there,  in the vastness of space between star systems?   For good or ill,  Voyager treks on in search of other worlds,  other solar systems.  

What might it find?

I am reminded of  "Star Trek - The Movie",  where a massive ship approaches Earth,  seeking it's creator.  If it doesn't find "the creator",  "V'ger" will destroy planet Earth.
 
The crew of the Enterprise finally deduce that V'ger is actually "Voyager 6".   While in deep interstellar space,  Voyager 6 is found by a superior race of (probably) cybernetic aliens,  who repair the tiny craft,  place it at the core of a massive ship,  pat it's little metal bottom and send it home to daddy.   The mission:  Join with the creator, or destroy.  

Oh my!

Lucky for us,  there never was a Voyager 6.   NASA only sent two Voyagers into space.

The thought still remains.   Let's just hope we never have to live out that scenario with V-1, or V-2.   The real Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock might not be so clever,  as in the movies.

What's Up For December Skies



Constellations
Courtesy oneminuteastronomer.com


*

Each month there is something magical about our night skies.  You just have to look up to see the wonder and beauty of the universe.

Jupiter at Opposition

A Cassini image of Jupiter and
Europa's shadow.

(Dec. 3, 2012) The big planet will be at its closest approach to Earth, with it's face fully illuminated by the Sun. If you have a large telescope and camera, there is no better time to view and photograph Jupiter and its many moons.





Switching partners

At the start of December, Saturn and Venus began moving away from each other, until Saturn takes on the waning crescent Moon, as it's new partner.  Before daybreak on December 10, Saturn and the moon will partner up and then before the sun rises on Dec. 11, Venus will once again partner up with the Moon.

Shooting stars

Watch from late evening to early morning hours, the Geminid meteor shower (Dec. 4-17), which will peak on the night of Dec. 13-14.  At it's best, the Geminids could possibly produce up to 120 meteors per hour and will appear to radiate from the constellation Gemini (thus the name).

Couple Encounter "Wall of Light" In Kilgore, TX

Artist Rendering-SW/LITS


*

A witness reports of he, his wife and their truck having been engulfed in a "wall of light."

This report was originally submitted to MUFON.


MUFON Case # 44169
Event Date: 10/24/2009
Time: 02:30 a.m. (approx.)
Location: Kilgore, Texas
Object Shape: Fireball, Sphere, Unknown
Summary: Ball of light, ground level. Emitting a wall of light that engulfed our vehicle. Radio and engine shut down and the light was bright enough to read by.


Report:
My wife and I was returning from the home of friends around 2am. We live in a rual area, no street lights. When we turned on Bell Rd. at about a 10 o'clock position there was a huge flash. We compare it to a transformer explosion. There was a wall of light moving slow, about as fast as I can walk, moving toward us. The radio and engine of my truck shut down. It was very dark outside, but when the wall moved past us, it was light enough to read. We don't know how long this light was on us. The wall moved back over us just as slow as it had come, when it reaches the glowing ball, it flashed and was gone. The radio came back on, I cranked the truck and we came on home. It was dark on one side of the wall of light and very bright on the other. What was strange is that we wasn't excited or scared, just relaxed like it was an every day thing. We didn't talk about it for a coupla days, When we did talk, we both seen the same thing. As far as we can tell we haven't had any adverse effects to this, Just feel crazy telling anyone. We can't tell how long timewise we was in this light.

     *

Editor's note: Perhaps the occupants of the vehicle were scanned, or possibly even taken and returned. If anyone has experienced a similar event, please report it. -Sunny
