The two experts in this Weather Channel video of a UFO over Utah speculate that the object may have been a) a radio controlled plane or b) a lighted paraglider. They're genial and open-minded, at least, but are not aware of what is actually happening in Utah. What they don't realize is that a similar UFO was photographed over the state in an abduction situation that is reported on this week's Dreamland. The two objects are pictured here side by side. The first shot is a frame grab from the witnesses video taken on the night of January 27, 2012. The second is from the cellphone of the witness in the multiple abduction in the same area on December 19, 2011. Of course, in the second image, the object is much closer--in fact, just outside the car of the witness. But there appears to be a general similarity of form and certainly the striking blue color is very similar.

The British Isles receive more anomalous 'falls' than almost any other place in the world. Falls of frogs, fish and other unlikely objects have been a climatological feature there for a very long time. The latest: mysterious blue spheres. If there is ever a follow up, we'll let you know!

This brief docmentary about a photograph of a beam of light emerging from the Kukulkan Pyramid in Chichen-Itza appears quite convincing.

Explorer Peter Lindberg found a very strange object on sonar. It's the size of a 747, but circular and has a trail behind it 1200 feet long, so it is heavy and it probably slid into place. But what is it? It's in Swedish waters in the Baltic, so there is a possiblity that we will actually find something out next summer when Lindberg's group returns to the site. (But if it's an alien spacecraft, don't count on it!)

At roughly 3:30 into this video, something, possibly a bird, seems to strike this luminous object and then drop away at a 45 degree angle. The video is authentic, and, I might comment, similar to many orb videos I have seen involving jet contrails. Orbs appear around these contrails too often for comfort. There would seem to be some connection.

Clearly, something was observed in this case, and it sounds as if it was far too brightly lit to be something like a US drone looking for drug traffickers or even something launched by a drug smuggler.
Whitley Strieber sent me this report with the comment, "I often noticed this effect back at my old cabin when the visitors were around. The world became flooded with perfection and lightness. For example, the evening before my encounter of December 26, 1985 was an almost perfect moment. It was uncanny, the way the snow fell in individual crystalline flakes. Beautiful. But the encounter, of course, was difficult. So I believe this witness." That's his privilege, but your Out There editor can only add that there's no proof. Maybe the witness read Whitley's books. (I am not trying to be cynical, but we have to be careful, always. The account seems credible to me, too.)

This is probably one of the strangest stories we have ever posted. The reason is that there is every indication, from night vision to blurred vision in daylight, that this child has tapetum lucidum in his eyes, the same material that enables animals to see in the dark and also causes their eyes to glow at night when a light shines on them. The human need for ultra-clear vision during daylight has caused our eyes to evolve away from those of animals. While some primates have tapetum lucidum, this child's eyes would appear to be absolutely unique in the human world.

This nicely produced mini-documentary purportedly shows a video made by two boys at three o'clock in the morning from a window of their home. The boys are interviewed, and a view from the same window during the day reveals nothing that could have been responsible for the lights. But how is it that the video production group, identified here as SoSick Graphics, obtains so much UFO video? They have many other videos on their channel. Where do they get them? How is it that members of the public know to go to them when they are all but invisible, buried in YouTube? There are many UFO channels like this on YouTube, all loaded with UFO video seemingly taken by the public. Unknowncountry attempts to communicate with all of them. We offer UFO video to them. So far, not one of them has ever replied to an email from us. Who are they, really, and where are these videos coming from?

This is a good photo of an object reported by the witness to be moving at high speed.

We have no further comment about this, beyond saying that the poster is correct: it's up to the public to monitor things like NASA'S Stereo video output as long as we can.

It would be easy to create objects like this using a computer, but to make the camera shake work so realistically would be harder. Odds are that this is a geunine video of objects in the sky.

This is a good compendium of the strange sounds that have been heard in many places worldwide in recent weeks. The origin of these sounds is an unknown at this time, but the movement of fault lines have been known to make groaning noises. If this is the origin, then the planet is experiencing deep movement of a type that is not being detected by seismographs, because there is no clear correlation between seismic activity and the sounds. At the same time, the sound is similar to sounds from recent science fiction films such as the roar of the Kraken from Clash of the Titans and the Tripod sound from War of the Worlds. Cloverfield2 is in production. So viral marketing is always a possibility. In addition, there are more and more videos appearing on YouTube that are actually dubs of the sound taken from other videos. Nevertheless, the origin of the sounds remains unkown at this time.

This bizarre story is reminiscent of Whitley Strieber and Craig Spector's graphic novel, the Nye Incidents, and of the Todd Sees case of 2002. The Sees case involved a man who died mysteriously while out in the woods in Pennsylvania, under circumstances that suggest the possibility of a highly unusual event. On the internet, it is generally called an 'abduction-murder' case, but it's not clear what happened to Mr. Sees. This case appears to be equally mysterious.
Unknowncountry's video experts have not been able to find any evidence of trickery in this photograph. Of course, it could be a radio controlled model or some sort of exotic drone, but there appears to be no engine and no evidence even of embedded engine nacelles. The surface glows like stretched skin through which sunlight is shining.

For the first thirty five seconds, this appears to be an ordinary contrail fragment distorted by the wind or by aircraft manuever. But then at 40 seconds, something very strange happens that includes not only the transformation of the contrail into another form altogether, but the appearance of a small gray object moving downward near it. What may be happening in this video is unknown.

The south of England is becoming a UFO hotspot, and these photographs, if genuine, suggest that the wave that has been experienced there recently is still ongoing.

It's claimed that this object was taped above Area 51 in Nevada, but no proof is offered. If it is a radio controlled model, where is the lift coming from? A mysterious video.

Because of the way the bulges keep withdrawing into the central core, this does not appear to be balloons. But what is it? This is a well made video of a real unknown, and a very, very strange one.

Is it simply the idea of 2012 that has caused this dramatic upsurge in UFO activity, or is something really happening? One thing: we're about to find out.

At first, this object could be identified as a small plane, but the configuration of the flashing light is wrong, even if the actual shape of the object is impossible to determine. Additionally, it cannot be a balloon becaue of the sudden move that it makes toward the end of the video. This object is unknown.

The announcer in this broacast is explaining that the airport was closed down for thirty minutes while an unitentified object remained in the area of the field. Similar incidents took place in China and Norway in 2011.

The objects are pretty far away and difficult to make out, but they do not descend like planes and do not have the profile of helicopters. Too bad the witness didn't hike into those woods. Your Out There editor certainly would have!

A remarkable video. Unless this is a kite, which is possible, this object fits with the other pyramid UFOs that have been observed in recent years, starting in 2010.

This is probably not a balloon, but what else could it be? Perhaps a Chinese inventor with a spectacular new personal flight system...or something very much stranger?

At 2:14 a dark round object moves from left to right across this video of a dramatic fireworks display in Taiwan. It is present in all of the videos of the event that we've been sent. The object could be a balloon, but its trajectory suggests controlled movement, so it qualifies as an unknown.

Of course, these would be easy to create in the comuter, but it seems less likely that a hoaxer would go to such pains to make them appear to be blurred like this--or, for that matter, why they are blurred, given that the other objects in the frame are not. Distortion like this has been observed in other UFO photos.

This OpenMinds article points out that the UFO seen surrounded by a cloud in Russia is quite similar to one seen in Mexico, and shows side by side photos.

This one is pretty standard until 2:15 in, when the object suddenly explodes, leaving residue in the sky. It is just possible that this is some sort of balloon, but it appears to be lit from within, which would make it a very unusual one. We are sending this to our video experts for analysis and their responses will be posted in the Unknowncountry.com video section.
