The Australian Transportation Safety Board reports a near miss between a passenger jet and a silver, cylindrical object in restricted military airspace on March 19. The pilot observed the object to be "cylindrical in shape and gray in color," a typically reported UFO configuration, but not one associated with any known military or civilian drone.

From the report:

"On 19 March 2014, at about 0913 Western Standard Time (WST), a De Havilland DHC-8, registered VH-XFX, was on approach to Perth Airport from Kambalda, Western Australia. When about 23 km north-northeast of Perth, at about 3,800 ft above mean sea level (AMSL), the crew sighted a bright strobe light directly in front of the aircraft."

Steven Greer has released a group of documents that he alleges confirm the existence and purpose of "Project Aquarius," a 1950s era top secret UFO study group within the government. Are they authentic documents? No way to tell at this time. We'll keep following the story. To read Greer's post, click on the source link.
The use of drones to hoax UFOs is reminiscent of the 2008--2010 use of sky lanterns. The sky lantern hoaxes died away, and so will the drone hoaxes, in time. Probably the least interesting you can do with a drone is to use it for a hoax like this, but it's the first thing that occurs to people like Energy Online.

This snapshot was submitted by an Unknowncountry reader from Malaysia. According to our experts, it was an authentic UFO. Looks like they missed on this one.

Two other images were sent. One was a video that our experts felt was a hoax. The other was another photograph that could have been real. So we emailed all three parties asking for further details about their cameras. We were especially concerned about the video because it was lower resolution than any cellphone camera we are familiar with, and lower resolution than any video camera that has been available for many years. But we thought that other cellphones might be in use in Asia, or it could have been an old one like that of the witness who took the still we were sent.

None of the three witnesses has replied, and it has now been a week. We conclude on the basis of our analysis that the video is a hoax, and, based on the silence of the witnesses, the two photos could also be hoaxes. However, it must be recalled that our experts didn't see any obvious evidence of hoaxing in the stills.

Further inquiries within Malaysia have revealed that there is a degree of public suspicion that the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was due to a UFO event. While no evidence of such a connection exists, it could be that Malaysian authorities have prevented these witnesses from emailing anything further about this matter. If such a connection does exist and is known to US authorities, US intelligence would have intercepted the emails.

The Object Report also received the photographs and the video and experienced the same lack of response that Unknowncountry did. For their report, click here.

Here is the Witness Report:

Around 12:30 PM Malaysia time I was around the Petronas Twin Towers area with my family in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

My young son pointed to the sky and said he saw a hot air balloon. I looked up and saw an object in the sky about the size of a large hot air balloon slowly spinning above and to the side of the Petronas Twin Towers. I thought it was a hot air balloon too as it was totally silent. I took a photo and suddenly about 30 seconds later the object shot upwards at an incredible speed and disappeared into the clouds. There was no sound except for an air burst. I have never seen anything like that before. I did a Google search for UFO sites and your website was listed. 

I see that there is a lot of info on your site about UFO’s so maybe you can shed some light on this photo that I am attaching. Sorry for the quality of the picture as my camera phone is an old model.

There were other people in the area and i hope they will also make their pictures public.

Expert Opinion:

Pretty weird.

The sun is behind the clouds, coming in from about the 10 or 11 o'clock position, so while the object is in shadow it's still possible to make out that it's three-dimensional. I have no idea what it is.

Your Out There editor just saw this one, and I'm intrigued. Contrary to a couple of the comments from other viewers, this isn't an insect or a bat. No animal moves like that. And I am fairly sure that it's not a CGI effect, although I can't be certain of that. I'd grade this as an interesting possible unknown.

The National UFO Center reports that professional photographer Jim Montanus of Montanus Photpgraphy photographed an unusual object while taking shots of an incoming storm over Braddock Bay in Greece, New York. He did not see the objects with the naked eye, but they were visible through the camera's preview window on his digital SLR.

It's not clear what the images show. Probably not lens effects, given Mr. Montanus's knowledge of cameras. If a meteor, it would appear to be moving very slowly as these are long-exposure shots. At this time, we're calling this a probable unknown.



“I was looking at these shapes on the back of my cameras and saying what IS it? I don’t believe in UFOs, but, you know, it’s just one of those things. It was just cool.”

Another among the thousands of UFO observations by credible witnesses. It's hard to understand why we ignore the UFO phenomenon. There is no question that it's real. The US government bears a heavy weight of responsibility for the fact that mankind is not gaining the knowledge that would come from proper scientific study of the phenomenon. Were it not for the resistance of the US Air Force, such study would have begun at least fifty years ago. It's just a damn shame--and they should be damned ashamed, too, and the media, and the scientific community, and the idiot skeptics.

Here's an excerpt from the pilot's statement, thanks to MUFON and the Huffington Post:

"As we were coming out the front doors with thousands of fans, I noticed a group of people pointing and staring in the southern sky. I looked up to see what they were watching and saw the following: An extremely bright, pulsating, round white light appeared to be slowly moving north toward the arena. I immediately assumed in was an aircraft on base leg getting ready to make a right turn to land at KFLL. The landing light, or what I thought was a landing light, was extremely bright. Thinking back it really was too bright to be an aircraft but I figured it could be."

Here's more:

"I approximate the object/orb/light to have been about 1500-2000 feet between the final approach fix NOVAE and PIONN. These GPS fixes are noted on the ILS 10L Approach Plate for KFLL. That would place it approximately 8-10 miles due west of KFLL on the 270 deg radial."

This is from an airline pilot with 34 years of experience and knowledge of the local airport. In this insane world of ours, though, he must remain anonymous. Again, shameful. At least he risked sending a report to MUFON.

This is typical of 'slow fall' UFOs. It appears to be a meteor, but it's moving far too slowly. It could be a jet with its contrail foreshortened by the angle at which it is being observed. It could also be something unknown.
