This video discusses the Aurora scramjet, a legendary secret aircraft supposedly developed between 1970 and 1990. I noticed an interesting comment on the video from none other than Whitley Strieber. Here is what he said:

"Aurora was listed in the USAF budget back in the 1970s before the budgets went black. When it was in test out of Edwards in the early '90s, locals were complaining to their representatives to the point that the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence discussed_ it. I also know a fisherman who saw what was almost certainly an Aurora over the Gulf of Mexico in those days. Is it deployed? I hope so. We spent a great deal of money on it. A great deal."


The first contrail shown in the video is a natural cloud formation called a 'Morning Glory,' but the next contrail, and the one captured on Google, are almost certainly scramjet contrails.

This TV news report sums up the situation in Missouri at the moment, as a blue-light UFO makes frequent nightly appearances. Local residents, unaware of how extensive this phenomenon actually is, are confused and perplexed. To their credit the news team has done some homework and presents a brief synopsis of other blue-light UFO reports from around the world.

Yet another example, this one from Plymouth, New Zealand.

This one is from Plymouth, Michigan, circa 2009. A high probability that this is an authentic UFO sighting.

When you are as close to the UFO phenomenon as I am, you come to notice how strange it really is. For example, UFOs love towns named Plymouth. This group of lights is from last night. Normally, I'd suspect candle lanterns, but the formation is very stable, which suggests otherwise.

The creator of this video claims that he knows how to build a flying saucer and needs thirty million dollars to do the job. However, this is most likely either a model under somebody's control or a CGI effect. The animation is very good, but the camera seems to lead the movement of the object. Still, what's 30 mil to find out the truth? Kickstarter, anyone?
Obviously, if this object flew away at high speed, it's an unknown.

These blue lights appeared over Dulce, New Mexico last night. In UFO legend, Dulce is the site of an underground alien base. A number of cattle mutilations were recoded there in the 1970s.

This video from January of 2012 has just surface. It shows unidentified lights over Hong Kong at the same time that an unusual sound is being recorded. There is no reason to believe that the video is hoaxed. While the sounds are similar to others recorded elsewhere, they do not appear to be a precise match to any recording in our files, meaning that this is probably not a dubbed video. The lights could be a blimp at high altitude, but at three in the morning, the greater likelihood seems to be an unknown object. This is the only known video that associates strange sounds and unknown lights. To watch Jaime Maussan's Third Millennium report with blow-ups of the object, click here.

This is a very typical sound, with its muted roaring hum. This is the first UFO related video ever uploaded by this user.

This one is very typical. There has been quite a rash of postings of these sounds in the past few days, after a period of relative quiet. This time, they are taking place at the same time that a worldwide UFO wave is occurring.
See video
This one could be a machine or perhaps sound reflected from a distant factory, but the fact that, despite its softness, the witness claims that it hurts his ears is unusual.

The first part of this video records the sound of a low hum quite clearly. Then when the witness attempts to get shots of the glowing clouds involved, only wind noise can be heard.

It goes on and on. Mr. Strieber says this one reminds him of something he heard in Santa Monica in March. This was was recorded in Germany.

This group of sightings in Kansas and Missouri qualify as unknowns. They join the worldwide UFO flap now in progress.

Another video from New Zealand, one of the world's many current hotspots. I have not given this to our video experts, but it would not be hard to fake. I am relying on the seeming sincerity of the poster. Mr. S. asked him a question: why did he happen to have his camera running overnight? If he answers, I'll add it to this post.

One of our video specialists, Steve Neill, picked this up off YouTube. These are moving in close formation, so they aren't balloons. More orange lights of unknown origin.

This report from Whitley Strieber's hometown of San Antonio may or may not be a sighting of a large candle lantern or other sky illumination. The description of beams of light coming out of it and structure beneath the larger surface actually suggests a manmade sky illumination of some sort, but we are posting it because of all of the other orange light UFO sightings being reported at present, and the conviction of the witnesses that it was something unusual.

This description of large orange objects is typical of the reports that are coming in worldwide. Normally, orange lights in the night sky can be dismissed as candle lanterns, but in this case the objects were much too large and the fact that they shot off into the sky at high speed moots the lantern explanation. Most of the sightings being reported worldwide at present are either large orange lights or triangles.

This interesting object was videoed over Reagan Airport in Washington, DC on the 16th. When it's zoomed in, it's clearly not a star or a plane. It's a good video, despite the idiotic commentary.

Given the fact that the car was moving in the opposite direction of this object, and it appears to be some distance away, it probably isn't a bird. It's over the area where the NATO Conference is being held. Are we looking, therefore, at a surveillance drone, or is an entirely different sort of surveillance under way?

Add to the sightings of Whitley Strieber and others, and you could say that there was a bit of a flap taking place in California. No reason to doubt the authenticity of this video.

These objects are hard to see, but look closely. This might well be an authentic video.

Certainly very strange, but I have to ask: he says that he was going up on his roof to get footage. But why? Does he do it every day? He doesn't explain. While this sound is indeed very weird, it's also true that faking something like this would be very easy.

Is this a balloon covered with frost? If so, why does it remain aloft? This is a high strangeness video.

This object was taped last night over Fresno, California. It could be a plane, but the running lights are not in an FAA approved configuration, or don't appear to be. We got a rash of UFO reports from California in the past few days, including one from Whitley Strieber. So far, this is the only footage that has appeared.

This is a good compendium of UFO footage from around the world that appeared in April. It starts with what is probably a meteor, but goes on to show a number of good shots. Some of these have already appeared on Out There, but not all. A powerful reminder of just how much of what is in our skies is unknown.

Obviously this is not a hoax and the witness is careful to state that she is seeing the phenomenon in the sky, that it is not a lens effect or a reflection from the car window. But what is it? Take a look. Your ideas welcome.

This unusual security camera video seems to show an entity appearing in a burst of light in a shopping mall. It's strangely similar to the Japanese security camera video we posted on May 8th, in the way it enters and leaves the scene in a single pulse of light. However, this strange similarity might be a case of a copycat hoaxer. Unfortunately, it takes very little time to create images like this in many different video graphics programs, and the sudden appearance of so many security camera videos has your Out There editor wondering if we're not looking at the newest hoax fad.

This famous video has resurfaced in an image-stabilized format. In the original, it's much easier to see that the first object is a small plane, the second a disk. One question: why does the videographer know where to wait for the two objects to reappear after they go behind the house? Still, in this stabilized version, the motion of the second object does appear anomalous. The video was researched when it first appeared, and no record of a missing plane was ever found.
