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.

31 years ago today, on the third night of the Rendlesham Forest UFO incident, Col. Walter Halt made a tape of events as they took place. It is worth listening to again. It is also worth nothing that the British Ministry of Defense said last year that all records of the Rendlesham Forest UFO Incident had disappeared from their records. Also, Whitley Strieber's December 26, 1985 close encounter took place five years to the day after the beginning of the Rendlesham Forest incident.

There are two unusual objects in this video. The most obvious is an orange blinking light that becomes a dark object as it appears to draw closer to the camera. The second appears like a moving star in the upper part of the frame.

This object also appears to be emitting some sort of a mist. Could it be a much smaller example of the mist surrounding the object videotaped over Moscow a few days previously?

This one is quite strange. It's moving too fast to be a celestial object and it certainly isn't a plane. A true unknown.

This object appears to be a plane, and yet it is difficult to explain its vanishing in what seems to be a clear sky. Is it a military aircraft using sky-transfer cloaking, which utilizes LED cameras to project an image of the sky from one surface of a plane onto another, or is it a genuinely unknown craft?

The shape of this device looks very similar to that of the drone captured by the Iranians.

And here we thought sure it was a dragonfly drone! This looks like a pretty airtight explanation...

Monday, December 12, 2011

This object appears to be somewhat similar to the Dragonfly Drones that appeared over California in the summer of 2007.

Another night, another low-flying triangular UFO. These have been seen in the US at least since the 1970s, so they are unlikely to be spy planes or drones. But what are they? In his book the Grays, Whitley Strieber has a description of a fascinating aircraft called the TR, which is a spy plane. It is actually a blimp, created and deployed back in the seventies. So, is it real? We asked him and got this response: "Fiction, but it shouldn't be. It's a good idea for a close-approach surveillance aircraft and it could be built, but not until battery technology produces lightweight, high power batteries that are the craft's motive power. It's probably 20 years out." Unless, of course, that technology exists somewhere behind the wall of secrecy.

The GOES Satellite takes regular images of Earth from a distance of 22,000 miles. A GOES watcher picked this up. It could be a video artifact, but if so, we couldn't find one like it in the 50 GOES images we searched any more than he could. If it is something near Earth, it's huge.

This cellphone video is entirely authentic, and shows a sky light of significant intensity that suddenly disappears. The phone is held inexpertly because the witness was caught off guard, but the disappearance of the light is clear enough. The problem is, there is no ordinary object in the sky that would do this, not a plane, not the moon, not a star, certainly not a candle lantern, because the light source is far too bright and doesn't flicker.

This is an unusual video. While it's true that fireflies do swarm in swampy areas, if this was indeed taken in November, it would be unusual to see them out in such numbers in the Florida Panhandle. It's also worth remembering that Ed Walters made his UFO videos in this same area, and that a UFO appeared over Gulf Breeze in the Florida Panhandle for many years. Working against this video is the fact that the witness states that he saw the object shoot up into the sky. If so, then how is it that he doesn't show that event, which would, of course, be strongly suggestive of authenticity? As the video ends in a freeze frame, he cannot claim that he just coincidentally cut off the camera at that moment. So where is the rest of it?

The first part of this story reads like a typical sighting of a fleet of Chinese lanterns, but then it gets very strange. What did these people see? Given that there is no released video, it's very hard to tell what the object that slowly rose into the sky and then disappeared may have been.

Such observations probably take place far more often than they are reported.

Sunday, December 4, 2011

Unfortunately, without being able to talk to the witness who reported this, it is impossible to determine how accurate the story is, but if it is true, it would certainly not be the first time an encounter between a huge UFO and a military aircraft has taken place. The most famous such incident took place over England in 1957, when Dr. (then Major) Milton Torres was ordered to scramble his fighter and attack a UFO he described as being "the size of an aircraft carrier." When he armed his rockets, it disappeared.

Another UFO sighting report from Argentina. Apparently it's quite active there at this time.
Argentina has been a UFO hotspot similar to Brazil for many years. This local newspaper report says that this is the second UFO reported in the area in a month. The reports are coming from Buenos Aires State near Jachal. Thanks to Scott Corrales and UFO Digest.

This could have been a video of an aircraft moving directly toward the camera, but the witness returned and watched it hovering for another 40 minutes. It would be helpful to see a daylight video of the same spot to be certain that the lights are not on darkened hills, but that said, this appears to be an authentic video of unknown sky lights. What they may be, of course, we cannot speculate, but unknown they almost certainly are.
