Now that farmers can hire circlmakers to decorate their fields for fun and PROFIT, more and more manmade formations are appearing. Some of them are even quite striking--from a distance. Up close, though, you find broken stems, no interweaving and generally rough edges. This formation, however, is among the most magnificent ever created. No human circlemakers are even close to the skill level required to create this superb work.

This red streak shot by one of the the International Space Station's fixed cameras appears to be a meteor entering the earth's upper atmosphere, but if so, then it is fully alight at a very high altitude. It's an unusual image, possibly unknown in origin.

There have been so many of these objects recently, I thought that I would post this digest of a number of the sightings.

A UFO has been videotaped by witnesses from inside a crop formation at Avebury. This is one of the rare occasions when a UFO has actually been recorded near a crop formation. The famous 'Oliver's Castle Video' of a UFO making a crop formation is widely discounted as a hoax. This could have been a high flying weather balloon or an iridium flare from a satellite, but it also could be a genuine unknown. It is not a hoaxed video. Your Out There editor has seen iridium flares, and they glitter, so that is probably the least likely explanation. In my book, a high-flying balloon is the most likely explanation, but it would have to have been quite large.

This object moves very quickly from left to right in the lower part of the frame. Its motion is too quick to be a balloon and too straight to be an insect or a bird. Probable unknown. (Note: One of the YouTube trolls comments that his "software" has determined a distance for the object, and that it is an insect. Without knowing its size or having any triangulation points, no such determination is possible, and no software exists that can do it without those inputs.)

The ECETI Ranch in Trout Lake, Washington has been a hotbed of UFO sightings for years. Locals have tried hard to shut it down, but it's still going strong.

This video has been made from a series of stills taken by Curiosity every few seconds. The stills were taken approximately every second or so, judging from the fact that the shadows and the sun do not move. If you look at this in full screen mode, you will see one object rise from the surface on the horizon, and another one cross the entire horizon from left to right. It isn't clear what these objects are. Contrary to some of the commentary (it is exceptionally stupid, even for YouTube), the objects are not part of the Curiosity mission's hardware. In addition, this low resolution camera would not be able to pick up an orbiting satellite from the ground. The object that crosses the horizon must be in the atmosphere, moving rather slowly in relation to the camera, and either very large or close enough for the camera to record it.

This is an interesting and unusual video. It is not presently explained.

Interesting video shot on low-light camera.

This video has caused quite a sensation, but apparently it's an actor called Frank Vidal. To see Mr. Vidal in another video, doing a monologue from a play, click here. The real question is who would decide to post such a video, and why now? The Earth's magnetosphere is well along in a process of change that will lead to another pole shift, but, contrary to the claim in the "Dr. Sal" video, there is no evidence that it will happen in August of 2016, nor is there any reason to believe that the Van Allen belts would come to Earth as the video claims. What will happen, though, is that during the period of magnetic chaos while the poles are shifting, the surface of the Earth will be exposed to gamma rays and other energies from the sun that the magnetosphere normally keeps away from the surface. There will be significant danger to crops, large animals that do not shelter, and people who cannot find adequate shelter. It will be a  difficult time on Planet Earth, but there is no evidence that it will happen in two years.

The video is hardly conclusive, but the humming sound is very eerie and the dog's barking is typical of canine reaction to UFOs. Given the nearby thunderstorm and the lack of proper lighting, it is improbable that this is a blimp. An apparent genuine unknown, and an excellent audio catch.

There are numerous UFO reports coming in from South Texas and Southern California at present. This video of pulsating lights over Beverly Hills is an example. The lights are not normal aircraft and do not appear to be floating like balloons. This could well be a video of unknown objects.

This is a very good article that points out what I see every day: the vast majority of UFO videos that appear online are either crude hoaxes or impossible to pin down. I often wonder about the hoaxers. What are they trying to accomplish, I wonder? Drunks, maybe, trying to have a little fun between beers?

Out There Editor steps up on sopabox.

This story from Queensland in Australia is typical of about half a dozen we get in each day. It's not spectacular. There is no reason to disbelieve it. And the world continues to ignore the truth: something in haunting our skies. But why are we so passive about it? As Whitley Strieber points out in Solving the Communion Enigma, science has all the tools necessary to solve the UFO and close encounter questions. But few scientists dare to get near the subject, and there is no grant funding whatsoever. None. Given the thousands of UFO sightings every year and the millions of close encounter experiences, this is so completely irrational that it seems like some level of control is being exerted to prevent us from looking at the subject rationally.

This one is difficult to evaluate. There are kites with LED lights that could appear like this. But it emits lighted objects toward the end of the video, so this could well be a genuine unknown.

The helicopter is hovering. The object near it is not flying aerodynamically. An interesting video, for sure.

For the first three quarters of this video, this appears to be a blimp maneuvering in the sky behind the Statue of Liberty. Nothing unusual there. But then the thing speeds up, going much faster than a blimp, and emits a stream of smoke. This is very similar to a 1952 sighting described by Dr. Paul A. Hill in his book Unconventional Flying Objects. The only caveat here is that this poster has a number of UFO posts--but they're certainly not CGI effects. Rather, they're more-or-less wishful thinking, not actual UFOs. This, however, is a very different kettle of fish. This may well be a craft of unknown origin.
