UFO videos shot from plane windows seem to be becoming more common. Some of them are other planes, but almost all such videos show an angle of some sort where the tailplane would be. There is no tailplane shadow in this video.

This is probably a genuine unknown, but given its location and what has been happening in North Korea lately, we could be looking at some sort of monitoring device that is waiting for North Korea to detonate a nuclear weapon underground, after the failure of the missile launch. Still, it's a good video and as it resolves into a group of lights toward the end, it becomes quite mysterious.
According to this story, more than a thousand people watched this object over a period of hours. It was at times accompanied by other objects. So it wasn't a meteor, not with a duration that long. The object would appear to be an unknown.

If true, this is absolutely fascinating and most unusual. Men with no eyebrows, no eyelashes, apparently wearing wigs, with huge blue eyes came into a hotel near Niagara Falls looking for the narrator of this video, and he was able to find them on his hotel's security camera. Unless they are actors (and he is, too) this is a unique case. He and some friends had an elaborate sighting of a triangular shaped UFO over Niagara Falls. You can read the detailed report here. (Spawns PDF flie.) Please note that the next MIB movie comes out soon, so this could be viral marketing.

This story, presented here by Puerto Rican investigator J. J. Martin, has never been debunked. Like Whitley Strieber, this witness received warning of earth changes to come in 1988, but there was no date given. It's an interesting case and the interview here is quite fascinating. (The clip of the aliens that appears in the video was not taken by the witness, but the UFO photos were.)

Multiple witness UFO sightings are fairly unusual, and this one must have been quite noticeable to have attracted so many witnesses. Unfortunately, the photo that was taken is not good, but there is no reason to doubt the accounts. Silver cylinders are a relatively common UFO type.

A lighted object similar to this appeared a few days ago over St. Petersburg, Russia. This object, taped during the day, has appeared over Lake Ladoga. It is unlikely to be balloons because the internal lighting seems too bright.

With no video, there is nothing for me to evaluate about this story, but it appears to be a good witness report. Military aircraft have been chasing UFOs since the 1940s--the equivalent of primitive tribesmen shaking their spears at observers from modern civilization.

Yesterday, we carried a story about an unknown object crashing in Connecticut, observed by two witnesses, one of them a state trooper. Now a sketchy report from Siberia. It is assumed that these are meteors or space junk, but it is to be hoped that at least one of the objects can be found.

Interesting how good videos come in waves. I've been looking at obvious hoaxes for a week. Now, suddenly, half a dozen good videos or reports appear. There is no reason to doubt the legitimacy of this video, but it's possible that the object is a plane, although the absence of the telltale vertical stabilizer suggests otherwise. (Plane videos mistaken for unknowns almost always reveal a bit of the vertical stabilizer, even if the angle of the video makes the wings impossible to see.)

This report of a diamond shaped UFO from two days before the Canary Islands discovery, illustrates how common this configuration is.
This could be a bird, but the diamond-shaped configuration has also been associated with UFOs for many years.

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.
