This video is a hoax. How do we know? Well, there are a number of answers to that question, and if you send one of the correct ones to whitley@strieber.com, you'll get a chance to win a free copy of the new Alien Hunter audiobook. So, Out There fans, many of you are pretty darn sharp, let's see some action here!

Military pilots reported a low-flying triangular UFO flying just 500 feet overhead. It was evening, but there was enough light in the sky for them to observe it in detail. It had no vertical stabilizer and had a row of pulsating white lights along its trailing edge. Flying with it was a smaller craft.

One witness said that he could see seams in the dull black material the object was made of, but no regulation anti-collision lights.

The description is similar to hundreds of others about dark colored, low flying slow triangles, and another example of how these objects just don't go away, and neither are they explained.
An Australian pilot photographed this object from the ground. It is too brightly and evenly lit to be a radio controlled device such as a homebuilt drone. The sighting took place last night in Caloundra along Australia's Sunshine Coast. The pilot told the Sunshine Coast Daily, "I have heard of and seen many, many things over the course of my career...but nothing like this."

We agree. This strangely lit object looks somewhat like a plane, but the intensity of the lighting qualifies it as presently unknown. The pilot wishes to remain anonymous. For more, visit the Sunshine Coast Daily.

This image from Loch Ness was caught on a satellite camera. Some Loch Ness researchers appear to be convinced that it's Nessie. There's a speculation that it might be a boat, but that seems pretty unlikely, given the fact that it's under the surface and isn't emitting a power wake, but rather has two large appendages in the same position as the wake on the boat pictured here.

If the witness description of this object is accurate, then it must be a genuine unknown. The witness offers a careful description of the movements of the object that would be impossible for a balloon, and adds a detail familiar from many sightings and close encounters: extreme agitation from nearby animals. Our photo experts feel that this is a genuine mystery.

The object caused sheep in the area to start making what to the ear of the witness were unusual, high-pitched sounds of terror. The sighting took place in Wales, where sheep mutilations have been a worrisome constant for well over a hundred years.

This photo of the unknown aircraft that flew over Kansas City at high altitude last week makes it clear that this isn't a known plane. It's not a stealth bomber because it doesn't have the characteristic jagged trailing edge. While it's unusual for classified aircraft to fly over populated areas in broad daylight, it's not completely unheard of, especially if they're about to be made public.

If this is the legendary and often denied Aurora space plane, it's unveiling is going to be a pretty spectacular event.

More photos from another witness are added in this report.

Ring clouds have been photographed fairly frequently for years, but there is no entirely convincing explanation for them. This formation that appeared over Leamington Spa in the UK yesterday is particularly well formed. It hovered for some time before dissipating. There were no storms or unusual weather in the area at the time.

An Unknowncountry reader reminded us that a ring cloud was observed and photographed during a the Rex Heflin UFO sighting in 1965. The cloud, pictured here, emerged as the UFO disappeared.

Residents of Highgate, a posh London suburb, are now reporting unexplained booms. These continue to be heard in many areas, especially in the United States, but it is a worldwide phenomenon. Unfortunately, there is rarely any resolution to these stories.

This light appear to be emerging out of the Martian surface. One blogger, Scott Waring, says "This could indicate there there is intelligent life below the ground and uses light as we do." A stretch, but not impossible. Another blogger, Phil Plait of BadAstronomy.com says, "a subatomic particle smacked into the camera, leaving behind its trail of energy." As the image appears on more than one frame of film, this is impossible. A more likely explanation is that the light is a piezoelectric effect much like ghost lights on Earth, such as the Marfa Lights.

UPDATE: Out There was reliably informed that there exists more than one image of this light, but it turns out that only one image has been released. We continue to believe that more than one image exists.

This interesting weathercam capture raises the question of whether or not there might be unknown life-forms in our skies. If such creatures exist, then the persistent undercurrent of 'jellyfish' or other seemingly living creatures in the sky would be explained. But then the question would remain: are they an Earthly evolution, or have they come from elsewhere?

In this enormous, deeply strange and wonderful universe, the answer is clear: unknown.

This very strange footage is difficult to explain. The idea expressed by the witness that it might be a government drone is probably not correct.

A skydiver in Norway taped a rock dropping past him out of the sky. This was almost certainly a meteor that had already burned out and was in dark flight. Your out there editor has been unable to find another video of a meteor in dark flight, so this is probably a world's first. Quite impressive, and a reminder that meteor and asteroid activity is increasing worldwide.

Jim Martin of Newport Beach, CA, captures lots of video of unknowns, mostly from his apartment balcony. Here is what he says about his latest work:
'
"Filmed on March 18 thru March 26, 2014 from my deck in Newport Beach CA.  The video covers 20+ UFO  captures filmed during the day and night.  We highlighted select clips with digital filters to enhance the images.  The video features various kinds of Orbs, Rods, Cigar ufos, a Morphing UFO, an Orb with Forcefield, and a large Swarm of Cigar UFOs filmed over Newport Beach.
 
"The footage was captured with a Canon 7D camera and Canon Telephoto Lens EF 100-400mm, with 2 extender, and a Sony HX3-NX3 camcorder, with Gen 3 LRS Scout for Night Vision."

There are many insects and birds in his videos, but the objects he concentrates on are unknowns, usually high-flying and fast. These are seen all over the world nowadays, and there are a number of videographers capturing imagery, especially in the US and Australia.What they are is anybody's guess. Some of the more exotic forms, in particular, look like living creatures of some unknown kind. The high-flying orbs would appear to be classic UFOs. They could also be ultra-fast classified military aircraft flying at the edge of space.
