This is a pretty strong video. No evidence of CGI work, no evidence that it's a plane. Probable genuine unknown.
Shades of the Canadian Shag Harbor incident of 1967, where a number of witnesses saw a large object drop into the lake. It was searched for extensively, but never found. This one will never even be searched for.

Sounds like space junk the way they describe it, but still an interesting video. What's peculiar is the object is moving away from the space shuttle, not near it or toward it, and yet they say it's not part of the shuttle. So what is it?

There is no reason to assume that this video is hoaxed, but it is not possible to tell what it is. The lights are not a typical aircraft configuration, but it could easily be a balloon or a dirigible. Interesting possibility, but no proof it's an unknown.

There have been a number of UFOs videotaped from planes lately, and this one taped in South Korea yesterday is a typical example. Of course, it could also be a simple CGI effect, but there is no way to tell with low resolution cellphone video whether or not this is the case.

This is not an insect or a reflection on the lens of the camera. Unknown, and a good catch by the viewer.

This is unlikely to be faked, and it is moving far too quickly to be a small aircraft or a balloon. A genuine unknown.

There is no reason to think that this is a hoax video, but it is difficult to tell exactly what it is. However, the display of lights does suggest that it may be an unknown.

All you need is a little mylar thread to create this hoax, if it is a hoax. Nobody in the store at the time--at least, not visible on the security camera. Anyway, a fun story.

The first part of this video is pretty interesting. It is one of the longest and clearest orb videos I am aware of. Mr. Strieber sent it to our video experts, and the response so far is that it is probably not a CGI job, and is not any obvious known object like a balloon or some sort of cinder. It moves with apparent purpose, almost as if it is displaying itself. The second part of the tape is of nighttime lights. Unfortunately, like most such videos there is no real way to determine what it is.

Another UFO taped from a plane, this one over Nepal. Nothing in the video suggests that this is either a reflection on the window or a GGI effect.

Many objects taped from the windows of planes are actually reflections, but these objects are not. What they may be is another question. They qualify as UFOs.

This footage has been debunked by YouTubers because the videographer takes an interest in CGI work. But his explanation of the video certainly doesn't sound like the work of a hoaxer. To hear him describe what happened, click here.

Until it began ejecting brightly lit objects, this nighttime UFO could have been anything from streelights to signage. But what happens in this video is truly extraordinary. Of course, it's always possible to hoax such things, and a CGI job in this case would be easy to do and hard to detect, but your Out There editor's gut is going with this being a real video of a real unknown.

An unusual object has fallen in Siberia. It was found in a forest by local villagers and dragged into a town, and has now been confiscated by police. The origin of the object is unknown.

More strange sounds, this example from Whitley Strieber's hometown of San Antonio, Texas night before last. Linda Moulton Howe will be on Dreamland this weekend reporting on mysterious underground explosions being heard across the central United States.

One of Latin America's leading paranormal investigators, Scott Corrales, offers a report on some truly bizarre and horrific sheep mutilations--and an interview with the caretaker who saw the winged, fanged creature that did it.

This object was picked up accidentally on by a passenger on a KLM flight from Amsterdam to Dallas on March 17. The UFO appears in the first few seconds of the video, but another YouTuber has provided a stabilized image that contains enough digital information to make it clear that this is not a balloon. It was hovering in heavily monitored airspace but received no official notice that was shared with the public. To see the stabilized footage, click here.

The magnetopause apparently reversed on March 12, because we were hit by a massive radiaton burst not from the sun, but from deep space. But why, as this video seems to make clear, did NASA and all the other recording entities delete the data? Why the need to hide this?

This object was sighted over the water off Ft. Meyers, Florida yesterday. There is no reason to belileve that this is a CGI effect. It's an unknown, and given the two lights, an unusual one.
This report by UFO expert and reporter Leslie Kean concerns UFO footage taken in Chile and examined at a professional level of skill that shows, without question, unknown objects moving through airspace in which a military air show is taking place. The footage is real. There can be no question that these objects are unknown. So where is the New York Times? Where is the Washington Post? Where are the scientists? Hiding behind US government denial. It's completely insane.

NASA has provided an explanation of the solar prominence that has caused so much speculation about UFOs near the sun. As NASA claims, it may simply be an ordinary form of solar prominence that happened to briefly emerge into an unusually regular shape, or it may represent an aspect of the sun's behavior that we have not seen before. In this video taken from YouTube, it can be seen abruptly breaking up, except for one problem: the frames of tape in which the breakup actually takes place are missing. Even the timecode is missing. Why? Because the video was edited, apparently by the Youtuber who posted it, in order to make it appear that the curved part of the prominence "turned on its warp drive" and just disappeared. The truth? In NASA's version of the video, which is entirely UNEDITED, the prominence can be seen doing what they always do--collapsing in a normal manner.

Another example of internet hype being pushed by a cynical jerk. Want to know what really happened? Read Linda Moulton Howe's expertly authored report and watch both the doctored video AND the real video. Click here.

An Austrian man has chanced on something metallic and apparently hollow that is buried deep under a field near his home. Of course, it could be an unexploded bomb or something else from World War II, but we are going to be keeping a close eye on this story for you.

Quite a few big meteors lighting up night skies recently. It's a substantial object if it lights up an entire country, as in the UK last week, or a big city like Melbourne, as has happened last night. The extensive UFO flap of 1952 was preceeded by green fireballs being seen throughout the US in 1950-1952.

This object is unlikely to be a plane because of the uniform glow. It does not function like a balloon. It is not a bird. Also, it's clearly amateur video, so the movement behind the trees is unlikely to be a CGI effect. Therefore, unknown at this time.

This video could show practically anything. It's just lights, apparently in the sky, until two jets show up at 6:25 into the video, at which point it gets interesting. The UFOs left the area and did not return. One cannot help but think that our military response to UFOs is the equivalent of primitive peoples shaking their spears at passing planes.

An investigation of this flash has so far turned up only the fact that it appeared near a sewage treatment plant. No explosions or unusual events were recorded at the plant, however. As of March 12, 2012, the flash remains a mystery. We will revist if an explanation is ever found.

This UFO was professionally photographed in Colombia and seen to land on the water. A fish kill was subsequently observed.

This looks like a solar reflection on the boat's windshield, but the witness claims that it was an object hovering over the lake for 15 minutes. He said, "It was about four or five times brighter than what’s in the picture and there seemed to be a steam cloud around it.” He turned his head for a moment and it disappeared. The event took place near Crease Island in British Columbia.

A witness in Perthshire has reported seeing two very large lights maneuvering off the coast of Scotland, approximately 24 hours after a meteor streaked across the British Isles, causing hundreds of calls to police. The description of the lights makes them sound like approaching aircraft running their landing lights, but the story comments that there was no air traffic in the area.
