Strange lights captured on tape over Fountain, Colorado

Original uploader: First of all, Feel free to laugh at how dumb I sound in this vid. I live in Fountain, Colorado, and my girlfriend and I have been noticing strange lights from time to time in our area. This footage was filmed over the northern horizon, December 27th, 2010. There are no military bases in that direction, and the airport is far east of the presumed location. I had to leave quickly because a few cars started coming up behind me and I was parked in the middle of the road. My android phone doesn't do this clip justice. From the naked eye, the UFO appeared to be descending from the sky with multiple bright, flickering lights on the side facing me. At the end of the clip, the lights on the object seem to disappear, then reappear as I left. I have no idea what it could be. You be the judge.

Cylindrical UFO over Utah? Looks very much like sunlited cloud



Description from the original uploader:
"This UFO was spotted in the sky tonight at 7:19pm the sunset was at 7:10pm this is not the sun or a cloud 4 people witnessed it and could not identify what it was it looked like the top of the sun going behind the mountains but the mountains are far below as you can see and the sun was already down. At approximately 7:43 the object disappeared slowly in the same spot.

The sun or cloud would have moved since 7:19pm the object was seen even before that it took 3 to 4 minutes before that to get the video camera to film it once it was spotted.

It was the brightest thing in the sky easily seen."

UFO? No, probbaly just a bug



Information from UFO digest.com:

"Location of sighting: Roanhead, Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, UK.

Date and time of UFO sighting: 23/07/009 @ 15:49hrs

One of the most exciting and possibly highly significant UFO reports to be sent to me came from a gentleman named Mr Bob Atkins of Cumbria, UK.

Bob was happily playing with his dog by a pool of water at Roanhead, Barrow-in-Furness. While videoing his dog on a mobile phone video camera he inadvertently captured a mysterious flying object in the sky.

Bob told me that the original video is 0h 3m 11s in length, but he cut the first 2 Min 37 seconds so as to leave just him videoing his dog.

Bob explained:

“The object appears in this video for about 1 second and you have to go into freeze frame to actually see what the object is as in normal play it just appears as 4 black flashes on the screen. This was captured on 23/07/009 @ 15:49hrs. In that 1 second the last few frames are the few that I think are most significant.”

As Bob says the object can clearly be seen whizzing across the screen at immense speed. I spent a good while checking Bob’s footage and the UFO seems to be a very solid entity to me with a shiny, light upper surface and darker underlying form below. The speed is impressive too and I would estimate the altitude of the object to be something around less than 100 feet.

Bob added:

”I have no other explanation for this. While filming this at the point where the phenomenon appeared I was facing approximately north. The first black spot appears in the clouds to the left of the screen then goes to the right and then to the forefront of the shots.”

Bob’s remarkable sighting reminded me of my own twister UFO event of 2008, in so much as the defined shape and how the entity suddenly whizzes into sight as if appearing out of nowhere."

The Solway Firth Spaceman

Very often, photographs of the paranormal are fussy and blurry, which makes it easy for skeptics to attack its authenticity. But, there exist a handful of clear and distinct paranormal photographs that the skeptics have had a harder time with. One of those photographs was taken in 1964 on a hill in the northern parts of England.

It was on May 24, 1964 when firefighter Jim Templeton and his wife decided to take some photographs of their daughters in Burgh Marsh, near Burgh by Sands, Cambria, with Jim's Pentacon camera. Jim took a photograph of his five year old daughter Elizabeth. The Templeton's were the only people on the marsh throughout the day. Nothing seemed to out of the ordinary, except they the animal behaved strangely. After the photograph of Elizabeth was taken, the family headed home.

Image right: The photograph in question. Still a mystery.

One week later, Templeton picked up his photographs at the local photochemistry. The person at behind the desk said it was “a pity that someone in a spacesuit had destroyed the best picture of Elizabeth by standing behind her.” Jim thought it was a joke. He was absolutely sure that they were the only the marshes that day. But sure enough, someone was standing behind his daughter in what looked to be a spacesuit. Templeton, confused and angry, took the photograph to the police.

THE POLICE: “IT WAS JUST A PERSON”
Also the police was surprised by what Templeton shows them. To them, it was without a doubt that someone was behind Jim's daughter, despite, whatever it now was; it looked to be floating rather than standing. The police sent the photograph away to Kodak, the manufacturer of the film. Either could Kodak identify the anomaly. The only they could say was that the photograph was genuine and had not been manipulated.

The police had started to investigate the case, and after a few weeks, they were able to conclude that the anomaly in the photograph was just human. Also, one of the investigators tried to make Templeton confess that it was his wife that had, by mistake, stepped behind Elizabeth at the time for the photograph. But why would the wife were a spacesuit and how did she make look that she was floating?

MYSTERIOUS VISITORS AND A LINK TO AUSTRALIA
The case gets even stranger. A few weeks after the incident, Jim was visited by two mysterious visitors. The two men arrived in a black car and wore dark suites, but except that, they looked normal. Their behavior was also strange; they only referred to one another by numbers and asked the most unusual questions as they drove Jim out to the marshes. The men tried to make Jim admit that he had just photographed an ordinary man walking by. Jim behaved polite, but rejected their theory. At this point, the men became angry and drove away, leaving Jim for a five mile walk home.

But the story does not end there. After some time, it becomes known that similar phenomena had occurred when a Blue Streak space rocket was due to be launched from Woomera in Australia. The countdown was postponed when two automatic survey cameras had independently spotted two large figures in the firing area during the countdown phase. But how is a missile launch in Australia related to Jim's photograph? It turns out the photograph was not taken far away from the factory were missile was constructed.

This is how far we can go when it comes to this photograph. Despite years of investigation and leads from the other side of the world, we're left with a photograph of a little girl and a person that one has been able to identify.

X Files reveal UFO sighting

"UFOS were spotted heading for Warrington in December 1998, according to previously top secret files recently released by the Ministry of Defence.

A group of four people saw ‘a low flying object with three large red lights shining directly underneath it’ before it moved off in the direction of the town centre.

The witness said: “There was no sound associated with the object ... and none of the nearby trees appeared to move from any draught the object may have made at the time of moving off...

Nurses's UFO "fright" quashed by MoD

"The nurse who claims to have seen a glowing UFO on a hillside has broken her silence over Ministry of Defence suggestions that it was nothing more than a combination of an earthquake and a meteor.

Pat Evans, whose description of the glowing ball she saw on North Wales’s Berwyn Mountains has prompted more than three decades of debate among Ufologists and scientists, described the MoD claims as “rubbish”.

And retired nurse and midwife Mrs Evans, who rarely speaks of the event, repeated her claim that she saw a UFO on January 23, 1974, in the incident known as the “Welsh Roswell...

Couple spot UFOs near Paradise Point Marina, California

Report from MUFON:

Date of event: July 30, 2010
Location of event: California, USA

"After seeing 4 objects on the 4th and 2 on the 23rd from our back yard as reported in earlier reports, my wife and I decided to go outside of town to get away from city lights just to see what we could see. So we went out to the delta about a mile north from Paradise Point Marina on the levee. At about 10 PM, I saw orange-colored lights coming from the south heading northwest.

They seemed to be south of the marina, hard to say how far it was, but they were low in the sky and moving slowly. It looked like they may have been by the port of Stockton, which was about 10 miles from us. My wife also saw these objects. There were 6 total, they seemed to be about a 1/4 mile apart as they came northwest. They all did a slow wide turn to the west and then back south towards Tracy.

We were watching them through binoculars until we could not see them anymore. There was no flashing lights you could see the street lights of the marina very clearly, and they seemed to be about the same size and a few inches higher than the street light from our view point."

Two witnesses spot UFOs over Indiana

Report from MUFON:

Date of event: August 12, 2010
Location of event: Indiana, USA

"Me and my buddy were in my garage smoking some cigarettes, then he got thirsty so we both went to get some water. As soon as I opened the garage door and we stepped out, I looked up and saw a bright, green circle zoom from above me to behind the tree line in front of me to the west.

Right away I knew I had experienced a UFO sighting. My heart was pounding and I was so excited. I told my buddy what I had seen, he thought I was playing a joke on him so I made him stand there with me to see if we could see any more.

Within five minutes, we had counted 6 or 7 UFOs. The first one I saw was the bright, green circle, it had vanished behind the trees in the west. After that, the other UFOs were smaller or farther away, and they were all flying so fast it was hard to spot them out. But they came from all directions. They were all moving fast and curving upward. Me and my buddy saw one UFO at the same time, it zoomed across the sky from north to south and had a yellowish light with a trail.

All the others were seen by either me or him. But the smaller UFOs had trails behind them, and my buddy described one that was shining bright blue. They reminded me of shooting stars, but they couldn't have been because they were curving and turning every which way.

I couldn't tell the shape of the smaller UFOs, but they gave off a bright white or yellow light. We only saw one green one and one blue one. I know what I saw. And my friend is my witness."

Several motorists witness unknown object over Texas

Report from MUFON:

Date of event: August 2, 2010
Location of event: Texas, USA

"I was leaving my uncle's house around 10:30 PM, CDT. I made my way to I-20 heading west, and as soon as I found my lane trying to get into the middle lane, I immediately noticed the light directly in front of me well above the horizon, but not high enough for me to have to peek up out of my windshield. Not wanting to be a bad driver, I asked my girlfriend and brother to look and find out what it was.

They responded, "It looks like an airplane," so by then I had reached my exit to head south on 360 on the overamp, and I took another glance at it and said, "Are you sure that’s a plane?, it has no blinking lights, none of the signs that screams I’m an airplane!" I then told them, "Keep your eyes on it, and don’t lose it."

It only takes 7 minutes to get back to my house exiting off of 360, and I turned west on to my road. At that time, the object was perfectly positioned in between the trees down the street, now that I had focused in on it and the trees are moving past me. I was asking my brother and girlfriend if it was moving, but no one could tell me because of the cars' movement. So I pulled over next to a junior high facing west behind the school.

I parked and turned off the car. I was really excited and anxious to get some references to make some decision as to what it could be. Well, I got it because it was right over the tree line and sure enough its movements were a little left, then up, a little right, back up, then freeze.

At one time, it started coming back towards the southeast, but I watched it gain altitude a bit and resume its course back northwest. Overfilled with a rush, I hopped back in the car, went straight for my ladder, and got on the roof with my brother.

We observed this light change its colors - red, orange, and then white. It stayed on a steady course for over a half hour. In between, it would go dim, then go out completely, then reappear. I thought to myself after it had reappeared, "This is the real thing."

Triangle-shaped UFO seen over California

Report from MUFON:

Date of event: August 2, 2010
Location of event: California, USA

"Monday night, a friend and I were out on my driveway talking and star gazing when my friend Robin saw something to the West of us approaching along a straight controlled path traveling in an Eastern direction. At first I could not see what he was talking about, but when he told me to look straight up and that it was about to pass above my car as the reference point I saw it.

The night sky was very clear and dark. The object was a distinctive V-Shape, very dark in color, and making absolutely no sound. It appeared to be dark grey, just slightly lighter than the sky making it visible to us. It blended in very well, but due to the color difference, we could see it clearly once we located it and followed it with our eyes. The shape was the only distinct characteristic.

The surface looked lumpy, not smooth like a stealth bomber. I thought it was flying pretty low in comparison to the many planes that pass over my house on a regular basis as they approach LAX. It flew at a constant speed, which didn't seem very fast, so we were able to track it for a couple of minutes before we lost sight of it. As the city lights caused the sky to be lighter further to the East, the craft blended in completely leaving us to lose sight.

The UFO had no lights, and the shape was a much tighter V than the shape of the B-2 stealth. I assume it was a military plane of some sort, but the scary thing is, I don't really know what we saw."

Multi-lighted object seen over near Yatesville Lake, Kentucky

Report from MUFON:

Date of event: August 5, 2010
Location of event: Yatesville Lake State Park, Kentucky

"I had just finished putting my dogs in their pen for the night, and looked up into the sky above the tree line and saw an object made of several lights, sort of hovering. I noticed the object because it seemed out of place in the night sky. This startled me so, I walked back toward my house and the object slowly moved down behind the tree line.

When it moved, it did not move in straight lines or abrupt zigzags, but more fluid-like, more like swimming than flying. When I first saw the object I thought it could be a plane or a chopper, but I heard no noise and immediately thought it was a UFO.

After the object passed, all the hair on my body stood on end. I came inside, told my wife what happened, and got a flashlight. I went back outside, and followed our driveway all the way down to the gravel road (around 400 ft).

On the way I felt watched and started hearing owls and coyotes up in the hills around our land. I went back inside and got my revolver, loaded it and went back outside to take yet another look. I did not see the object again or hear the coyotes or owls. We live at the head of a hollow near Yatesville Lake."

"Haunted" village deserted for century

"Ghorachab village in Chhattisgarh’s Korba district is like any other rural habitation in India, except that it remained deserted for over a century, thanks to “mischievous ghosts”.

Sea monster or carp lurks at Lakeside?

Yep, Lakeside has its own sea monster...

TWISTED HISTORY: The Dover Demon

"Let´s hop across the border and visit Dover Mass. this week to examine a creature called the Dover Demon.

The Dover Demon was first named by Loren Coleman, a cryptozoologist, but it seems a misnomer. The demon actually appeared to be fairly small and frail.

It was first spied on the evening of April 21, 1977, on Farm Street near the outskirts of Dover. A teenager named Bill Bartlett was driving with a couple of friends, just cruising the streets, when one of them spied something strange by the side of the road...

Bigfoot Found in North America?

"We introduced the story of “Mr. Mike”, who claims that he is experiencing repeated Bigfoot sightings in the backyard of his home, on July 3, 2010 when “Mr. Mike” joined the program and we found ourselves inadvertently making history.

I’ve met with some criticism due to a badly placed headline on my website that the skeptics have already begun using as a means of detracting from my efforts to validate, and verify, the story of ‘Mr. Mike’s’ Bigfoot encounter. I take personal responsibility for that mistake.

The headline on my web site was placed very quickly due to being up against a deadline for the beginning of the show on July 3, 2010. Of course I wanted to grab peoples attention, but not mislead the world. I should have stopped to rethink my words of choice, but I didn’t. I was in a hurry to get on the air as I was running behind and had hardly been able to prep for the show after spending 11 hours on the phone with virtually every person in the field of Bigfoot research, or trying to reach them...

Little Haunted House on the Prairie

"The wide-open prairie can be a spooky place late at night. I discovered this last weekend, while driving across the lonely stretch of land between Spruce Woods Provincial Park and Brandon. The pale light of the full moon made every cluster of trees seem haunted and gave the mist that hung over the land an unearthly glow.

Why was I travelling across the prairie at one o’clock in the morning, instead of being sound asleep in my tent at Spruce Woods' Kiche Manitou campground? My travel partner and I were heading towards the weirdest provincial park in Manitoba – the Criddle/Vane Homestead Provincial Heritage Park.

The Criddle/Vane Homestead sits at the end of a farm road, off Provincial Road 340, 40 kilometres southeast of Brandon. Percy Criddle brought his family over from England in 1882, hoping to make his fortune by growing wheat on the Canadian Prairies...

Lochinvar is Haunted

"Lochinvar Plantation is a true part of the old south, steeped in the lore of the southern states and drenched in the traditions of long ago. Built in the late 1830's, the mansion was home to the Gordon family for many years and watched over by an old caretaker. The Gordon family is long gone now.... but the old caretaker still watches over the place.

Lochinvar was built by Robert Gordon, a Scottish adventurer, in the late 1830's as a gift for his wife. At the time, Gordon owned a strip of land which stretched all of the way from Pontotoc to Aberdeen, sixty miles away. Aberdeen was Gordon's own town. He had founded a trading post there in the early 1830's and named the place Dundee in honor of a town in Scotland. He later changed to the name to Aberdeen.

It was near Pontotoc where Gordon found the land where he wanted to build his home. The location that he chose had been the land of the Choctaw Indian chief, Chinubi and once the Indians were gone from the area, he began building the new house...

The Aurora, Texas UFO incident of 1897 - Part 3 of 3

In 1897, six years before humans took to the sky by airplane, eyewitnesses from California to Michigan to Louisiana reported seeing mysterious cigar-shaped crafts sailing gently through the sky. But one of them stood out from the others. Something had crashed.

Part 3 - The quest for an explanation

As amazing this as this story might be, it could as easily all been an elaborate hoax. The town of Aurora had reasons to make this story up. Just months before the alleged crash, Aurora had gone through a series of tragic incidents. First, the economic source for the town (cotton farming) had been destroyed by a boll weevil infestation. Second, there was a fire on the west side of town claimed several buildings and lives.

Not long after the fire, an epidemic of spotted fever hit the town, nearly wiping those who had survived the fire. The fever also placed the town under quarantine, not making the situation any better. And finally, a planned railway never made it to Aurora, making Aurora even more isolate to the outside world. The town of Aurora was in danger of dying, and that’s why several researchers sees Haydon’s article as a last attempt to keep Aurora alive.

But if it weren’t a hoax, what was it then. Could an extraterrestrial actually crashed down on Earth in 1897. Of course there’s the possibility of that, but the explanation is probably more earthly than extraterrestrial. At the time of the crash, several patents for flying aircraft already existed, so crafts like the one who reportedly crashed could already have taken to the skies, but there is no proof of that. And the body that was said to be alien could very well have the badly burned body of the human pilot.

But there is one evidence left to investigate, the alien’s alleged grave at Aurora Cemetery. Over the there have several movements for exhuming the grave, but every permission have been denied by the Aurora Cemetery Association. They say they deny for the respect of others on the cemetery. But by making impossible to investigate the grave, it will be impossible to close this case. Just by a single look into the grave, we would be able to say that really as says in the news article or confirming that it all was just a hoax. Maybe one they will give away and open the grave, but if not we’ll maybe never know the real truth of what happened in Aurora 1897. The story lives on.

Scientific evidence of poltergeist knocking?

"Paranormal rappings associated with apparent poltergeist activity have been described for many hundreds of years. It is only now that an interesting pattern has been discovered within the fine detail of the paranormal rapping sounds. No explanation can be found for this pattern at present.

The current edition of the Journal of the Society for Psychical Research (SPR), a learned publication dating back to 1882, carries an article by scientist Dr Barrie Colvin B.Sc., Ph.D., showing instrumental evidence for an inexplicable and objective banging sound detected in recordings made during alleged poltergeist activity.

Whereas raps and knocking sounds produced by ordinary means exhibit a normal acoustic pattern, those recorded in alleged poltergeist cases show quite a different sound signature...

Alien caught on tape in Canada? - I have my doubts

A new interesting video has turned up on Youtube. This time it's a footage of an alien allegedly shot in Alberta, Canada in June of this year.

The original description from "MrBeeHat" is as following:
"This footage was taken at around eleven or twelve at night in rural Alberta on June 7th 2010. A few days prior to this, me and my brother had been hearing noises from the yard at night and thought we had seen something out the window, so we decided to keep a camera handy in case it happened again. As you can see, the footage we captured shows a tall creature with a strange manner of walking. It had quite large hands with three fingers each and appeared to almost go completely invisible at times. One of the strangest features of this being was it's almost metallic looking skin. Feel free to comment on this footage."

This isn't the first time a video of an alien shows up on the web. In the summer of 2008 this video showed up on Youtube:



The video was promoted by Jeff Peckman, but was said to have been shot by Stan Romanek in North Dakota. Back to the new video.

I have some minor knowledge 3D-rendering, and there are two things interesting to me: when the "alien" runs it looks strange, and the collision with the chair doesn't look natural either. It looks like when an object is knocked on a video game and it just falls down.

I doubt that this video shows an actual alien, it is more likely just a computer rendering of some sort.

Here's the video anyway:

Man and son watch UFO hover over bridge in Connecticut

Report from MUFON:

Date of event: June 17, 2010
Location of event: Danielson, Connecticut

"I was fishing at the bridge on Route 6 in Danielson right on my street. I saw an object flying toward me. This happens all the time because I live next to a small airport, so I just figured it to be a plane coming in till it stopped.

It got real bright and was just hovering in one spot. I called my mom and dad because they live 3 houses down from me, and my dad came running. I was scared, but my dad and I watched this thing for like 15 minutes.

It just stayed right where it was, and never made a sound of any kind. The object would occasionally glow various colors.

I'm still shaken up over what I saw, so about 10:30, we walked back home, I went in the house, took a quick shower, grabbed some binoculars, and went back to the bridge. I knew if it wasn't a star or it would have still been there, it wasn't, it was gone.

I don't care if anyone believes me, but I saw it, it was real and then it was gone. I tried to get this on my cell, but it not very distinct."

Small, disc shaped object witnessed over Colorado

Report from MUFON:

Date of event: June 16, 2010
Location of event: Colorado, USA

"On 06-16-10 at about 0935 in the morning, my friend (*name deleted) came to me and told me that he and another co-worker were outside our building and they were watching a "UFO," (*name deleted) asked me to get a camera, which I did, and brought it downstairs with him. Another co-worker, (**name deleted), also followed me downstairs. We went outside.

(*name deleted) and the other co-worker pointed into the sky to the NW of our location at about a 50 degree angle from the ground. I saw a small, circular object which reflected a silver light from the sun, and estimated it to be at between 5 and 10,000 feet in altitude. I began taking still digital photographs of the object, which appeared to be round or circular. I saw that it was not being towed by another aircraft and did not have wings. The camera used was a Canon Powershot SX20IS, with a max zoom of 560 mm.

The object (still watched by myself and the other 3 witnesses) continued to move slowly to the N.West. It was hard to tell if it gained altitude, but remained in the shape and still reflective. We lost sight of the object about 7 minutes later as it went over our building.

(*name deleted) told me that the object was much closer when he and his co-worker first saw it above the building (and was much lower in altitude), and looked like a "disk". They said it was completely silent. I reviewed the images at on a low-res screen afterward and the object is positively round or disk-shaped. The detail of the images is not superb, due to the distance when I first saw it.

(Names of wit's friend and co-worker deleted--SGonzalez/CMS)."

Three witness objects that materialize/dematerialize over Bodega Bay, California

Report from MUFON:

Date of event: June 13, 2010
Location of event: Bodega Bay, California

"On the night of Saturday June 13 at 2 AM in Bodega Bay, California, myself and two other people with night vision binoculars spotted five objects in the night sky that were not planes or satellites. These objects would materialize and dematerialize and move not in straight lines. They would start to materialize more or less in the same spot, then move to other areas in the sky.

During the night we saw planes that would strobe so they are easy to pick out. We also saw one satellite that appeared low in the sky and traveled across to the other side of the sky and it was straight and steady in color. We also saw lots of meteoroids. So needless to say, WE KNOW WHAT WE SAW and for sure it was a UFO.

We also had a very powerful green laser and it kind of seemed like the UFO could see it because when we turned the laser in the direction of the UFO it would dematerialize, and when we stopped pointing it at the area of the UFO it would then rematerialize. This was very strange, and I have never seen this happen before and we have seen UFOs before and have done the same thing.

What ever people think of this is up to them, but the three of us know what we saw and for sure these things appeared to be under intelligent control."

Unknown flying object seen in Oregon

Report from MUFON:

Date of event: June 15, 2010
Location of event: Salem, Oregon

"We took the kids to the playground at River Road Park in North Salem (River Road/N. Broadway); arrived just after 2 PM. Watched them play for a few minutes, looked SSW at the clouds: mostly billowy storm clouds--heavy rains on and off during the past couple of hours, with/periodic showers starting earlier in the day.

First noticed a hawk's nest in a tree at the same direction, about 100 feet off the ground: one bird left the nest and circled, the other bird remained to watch the nest; first bird returned a couple of times. My kids and I watched the birds/nest directly for about five minutes, then they played and I watched them. Periodically, I looked at both the hawk's nest and the coming storm clouds while the kids played. At one point, directly above the nest by several feet (approximate, based on distance from ground), I noticed what I first thought was a balloon.

It rose very slowly in the sky towards the clouds. Several things immediately stood out: object was black, was at first spherical in shape, but appeared to almost change into an egg/oval shape as it moved, heavy winds were blowing storm clouds from the SSW to W very quickly--but the object continued to move directly up as if moving against the wind. I watched it move slowly and directly upwards, seeming to 'change' between sphere and oval, for at least four/five minutes, still entirely against the wind. It then stopped, and stayed stationary for about a minute (definitely not as long as the upwards movement); very dark storm clouds were quickly approaching it, but its own dark color stood in contrast to the clouds.

Then the object moved horizontally--positioning to WNW--at an incredible speed, and disappeared into the cloud bank. I watched for at least a couple of minutes to see if it emerged out of the cloud bank--the wind was moving the clouds quickly--but saw nothing further.

Again, at first thought it was a balloon, like one of the large ones used by car dealerships to draw attention, but there are none in that part of town--or across the river (Willamette), for that matter, nor was there a tether seen. Too, from the apparent distance from the ground--perhaps several miles--the likely size of it would've made it unlikely to be a commercial balloon. But the general fact of it moving in a straight line upwards AGAINST fairly heavy winds for several minutes negated that it was a balloon; too was the fact that it stopped/remained stationary for at least a minute AGAINST fairly heavy winds.

And finally the fact that it moved AGAINST fairly heavy winds at a high rate of speed into an approaching cloud bank made it unlikely that it was a balloon. I'm not entirely convinced of what I saw. Just the distances and weather patterns converging concurrently make me feel that a light object like a balloon wouldn't have functioned/moved in the manner that it did. But similarly, perhaps the weather patterns and distances at the time made an ordinary object appear to act extraordinarily.

There is a National Guard airbase in town, and perhaps they do conduct weather experiments...but the base is several miles away in the opposite direction. It's been many years since I took a science class, so perhaps there's a logical explanation (i.e., optical illusion, theory of physics) for why something moved the way it did for the duration it did... but thought I'd post this in case someone else in Salem, OR might have seen the same thing..."

Why do we need to look for Bigfoot?

"(CNN) -- Watch out! It's 10 feet tall and hairy, and it could be coming to get you -- or your dogs!

Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, is said to be an ape-like monster but has never been proved to exist. Still, reported sightings never stop: Tim Peeler of Cleveland County, North Carolina, says he saw a giant, hairy "man-looking person" with six fingers that was going after his dogs June 5 and told it to "git." On Thursday, a large, muddy footprint in Burke County, North Carolina, stirred up more Bigfoot speculation.

Across human societies, variations on mythical creature stories like that of Bigfoot have persisted for thousands of years, and accounts of seeing or hearing them still abound. There may be some basic culture-based need for these fantastical tales, said Todd Disotell, professor of anthropology at New York University...

Group members said they believe the footprint, which was discovered by a farmer, is real because it shows dermal ridges like a hand print and a mid tarsal break, which is evidence of a foot that bends in the middle, unlike that of a human...

Large, glowing UFO seen over Portland, Oregon

Report from MUFON:

Date of event: June 13, 2010
Location of event: Portland, Oregon

"I was sitting in my backyard on the evening of June 13, 2010. It was around 10:30 PM, and a very clear night in Portland, Oregon. The stars had just started to come out as it gets dark later and later this time of year. It was a beautiful evening and my eyes were drawn to the sky.

There is a lot of air traffic in Portland and I am quite familiar with the speed and looks of airplanes at night. There was the usual air traffic here and there: slow moving planes with their lights blinking and flickering in the distance. There was a pause in air traffic and the sky was calm. I noticed a small, star-like object out of nowhere moving very fast across the sky from the south heading north. I was facing east with the Big Dipper directly behind me.

There was no special shape to it. It was not glowing in any way. There was no tail like a shooting star or comet. There were no lights at all. It wasn't blazing across the sky, but moving at a steady, faster-than-a-plane speed. It soon went out of eye-view (trees, etc.). I thought it was interesting, but kind of just shrugged my shoulders. About ten minutes later I saw the same thing.

Again, I didn't see where it came from but it had the same flight pattern, flew fast across the sky, and disappeared from view. The object did not change direction while flying from its original path. After seeing it a second time, and eliminating all possibilities, I thought that I may be witnessing something unusual here, so I got a little more excited.

My eyes were now glued to the sky in this area. Around 10:30-10:45 PM is when I could officially tell myself I witnessed a UFO. Looking up at the sky (SE direction) I saw an extremely bright light that had the appearance of the North Star only about 10 times brighter and much bigger. It was so bright I had to squint... AT NIGHT! My mouthed dropped as the massive glow shrunk down to the size (like a dimming light) of the two previous "crafts."

It streaked across the sky at the same speed as the others on the same flight path. This time before disappearing out of eye sight, it deviated from its original northern path, started flying UP into the sky and literally disappeared; not out of eye-sight, it just vanished up into the sky. I felt overwhelmed with what I had witnessed but also extremely lucky. I felt very fortunate to have just witnessed the strangest, most exciting thing ever.

Again, there were absolutely no lights flickering or blinking. It was not a shooting star or a comet. I know what those look like. No cigar or v-shape, etc. I am not a person that thinks any strange object in the sky is a UFO. I have never thought to having seen a UFO before, nor have I reported anything like this before. My eyes will be glued to the sky in the nights ahead!"

Flying object makes fantastic maneuvers over New Dorp Beach, Staten Island

Report from MUFON:

Date of event: June 12, 2010
Location of event: New York City, New York

"My friends and I were walking on New Dorp Beach, in Staten Island, New York, (one of the five boroughs), and we looked up to stargaze, and instead see strange lights in a clear night sky. The pattern of lights was consistent with a tail light (color purpleish), two wing lights (a strange white color), and a center light (red to green).

What was most frightening to us was the sound - or rather lack of any. The bottom was black and sleek, almost as if it were an SR-71 blackbird, although current technology does not allow for flight ascending directly upwards and downwards, and does not allow for sudden, almost sonic speeds. It seemed to slow as it was above us, the lights in the front became three white headlights, and it was followed by an obviously American military jet.

This craft has been spotted in many different areas on Staten Island. It's one thing to run a military test run, but it's completely another to see a military jet actually chasing an unknown craft. I haven't the slightest clue whether it was of a terrestrial or extraterrestrial nature, but quite frankly it's been seen quite often. It was both wondrous and frightening, we were all mesmerized.

We lost sight of the craft after it sped away in a curious diagonal pattern. I apologize for lack of any photographs, we figured that if it were military, the last thing college students want is to be investigated due to photos of military craft."

The Aurora, Texas UFO incident of 1897 - Part 2 of 3

In 1897, six years before humans took to the sky by airplane, eyewitnesses from California to Michigan to Louisiana reported seeing mysterious cigar-shaped crafts sailing gently through the sky. But one of them stood out from the others. Something had crashed.

Part 2 - MUFON investigates - uncovers physical evidence

This incident was soon forgotten and it became just a tall tale that spread from resident to resident. That was until May, 1973 when it was commented in UPI like this:

"Aurora, Tex. -- (UPI) -- A grave in a small north Texas cemetery contains the body of an 1897 astronaut who was 'not an inhabitant of this world,' according to the International UFO Bureau.

The group, which investigates unidentified flying objects, has already initiated legal proceedings to exhume the body and will go to court if necessary to open the grave, director Hayden Hewes said Wednesday."

"After checking the grave with metal detectors and gathering facts for three months, we are certain as we can be at this point [that] he was the pilot of a UFO which reportedly exploded atop a well on Judge J.S. Proctor's place, April 19, 1897," Hewes said." "He was not an inhabitant of this world.

As by over a night, the crash was big news again. And in article published some days, an interview with a living witness to the crash was. The 91-year old lady was fifteen at the time for the incident. She stated that her parents had been to the crash site, but that she wasn’t allowed to join for fear of what might be in the debris. She also recalled a burial of “a small man” at Aurora Cemetery.

MUFON INVESTIGATES – UNCOVERS PHYSICAL EVIDENCE
Not only became the press interested in this story. Later that year, Bill Case, an aviation writer Texas state director of MUFON, decided to investigate the alleged crash. MUFON was able to uncover a new eyewitness to the crash. Charlie Stephens, who was 10 in 1897, told MUFON how he saw airship heading north toward Aurora. He continued to tell that his father went to the town the next and saw the wreckage from the crash.

Eyewitnesses aside, were there any actual physical evidence from the crash? According to MUFON, there was. Under the investigation, MUFON was able to uncover a piece of metal that was said to be from the wreckage. The metallic piece was analyzed and it was revealed that it was composed 95 percent aluminum and 5 percent iron. This alloy is very uncommon in nature and after further analysis they were able to conclude that it had been air-cooled on the ground. This led to the assertion raised in MUFON's report that, given the presumption that it originated in 1897, the sample could not be of terrestrial nature, but they also stated that it just could have been an object put there at any time during the last century.

MUFON continued their investigation at the Aurora Cemetery and found a grave maker that appeared to show a flying saucer. Near the grave maker, detectable readings from a metal-detector were made. MUFON asked the cemetery association for permission to exhume the grave, but they declined.

After MUFON’s investigation, the grave marker mysteriously disappears and a three-inch pipe was placed into the ground. MUFON’s metal detector could no longer pick up any readings from the grave, thus it was presumed that the metal was removed from the grave.

Unknown, metallic object spotted in daytime over Lansing, Michigan

Report from MUFON:

Date of event: June 10, 2010
Location of event: Lansing, Michigan

"Downtown Lansing about 11:05 am - Walking towards Kalamazoo and Grand Ave, and saw something bright in the sky. Looked up, assuming it was a plane. The sun was glinting off of it very strongly when I first saw it - only the "nose" wasn't shining. It moved deliberately across the sky.

It was lower than all other planes and did not have contrails. It made no sound. When I got to Kalamazoo I realized it didn't have wings or a fin. The metal and shape reminded me of old 50's trailers that were all steel/aluminum/whatever.

I thought, "UFO?" but didn't REALLY believe it. I looked both ways, crossed to the turn lane, looked back up, and I couldn't find it. I searched in the same area of the sky and found it - but it was BARELY there!

It was a clear blue sky - clouds would not show up for 2 hours - and even though this was VERY low, it was disappearing. I could see the outline the clearest, the inside was now the same color as the sky. I looked at traffic and then crossed (less than 15 feet) and when I got to the sidewalk, I couldn't find it.

It should have been directly ahead of me in the sky (looking northward), I looked in that clear sky for 5 minutes and could find it. No one else saw it. Downtown Lansing is full of people at this time of day (State Workers) and it was a warm day, so there were many people walking.

I looked around and realized that no one was looking up and that MOST people DON'T. Watch people next time you are out - they are either looking at the ground or at eye-level. Anything could be flying overhead and, if it doesn't make noise, no one's going to see it."

Cigar-shaped UFO seen over Pennsylvania

Report from MUFON:

Date of event: June 12, 2010
Location of event: Pennsylvania, USA

"I was lying on the couch watching the Weather Channel as we were having some storms in the area. I had been out playing hockey and I wanted to go back out. It looked as if the storm had passed on the radar, so I started to head back out.

First, I glanced out the window when lightning caught my eye. I stood there and watched for a minute before I saw a black, cigar-shaped object hurtling through the sky. It was above the treeline, sliding at a 45 degree angle.

At first, I dismissed the object as a bird, but there was a hawk flyng next to it. The hawk was shifting, but the UFO kept at a steady angle. The event lasted about 5 seconds. As soon as the sighting had occurred, I came up to my computer and wrote this report.

So you can trust that the whole scene is fresh in my head and I didn't make up anything. Remember to watch the skies.

P.S. I am sorry there is no attached media. I know that lessens your belief in my testimony, but I swear, it was there!"

Bigfoot in the central Savannah River area?

"AUGUSTA, GA - Dave Collier has never come face to face with a Bigfoot, but he’s talked to plenty of people who have.

“I believe that sightings and encounters are more common than most people believe,” he says. “And what surprised me the most when I started this was how many there were in this area.”

By this area, the Martinez resident doesn’t mean the Southeast, and he’s not just talking Georgia...
