Okay, I have to admit that they're probably smokin' something pretty amazing in Pakistan, but Out There exists to run wild and weird stories like this. I wouldn't bet on the 'invasion,' though. Want me to grade this one. Try Q-

I have wondered about this alleged HAARP-weather connection. This website identified a strange formation a few days ago in the area where the Iowa tornado touched down yesterday.
Close up sightings are becoming more and more common. Even as recently as a year ago, they were rare.

Mr. S. sent me a link to the video trailer for his new book, Hybrids. I don't think he expects to see it on Out There, but it's really wonderful, so take a look.

A new video of stick figure aliens has surfaced. To see a strikingly similar video from 2008, click here. This is a complicated world, so you never know whether this is an elaborate spoof or not, but San Diego in 2008, then Fresno in 2011? Certainly very improbable.

Low flying triangles are now commonplace in the United States. Are they US serveillance aircraft, or something very much stranger. For other recent stories, click here and here. Out There's best guess: whomever overflew Arizona in 1997 likes it here and has decided to hang out, at least for a while.

When Whitley Strieber showed some video from Shuttle Mission STS-80 to a NASA representative, he said 'I don't see anything there that looks like a UFO." Yeah, right. Now another unexplainable object appears, and they're confused. Is it in the sky or on the ground? Wake up, NASA. (Never happen...)

It would be quite a project to construct a crop formation this large and beautiful, but it's always possible. It's also possible that the genuine mystery has now spread to Vermont. However, the formation appears in a green field with green, fully leafed trees nearby. No date on the story, so when did this happen? Last summer? Not recently, it would seem. A personal note from your editor: I wouln't take this one to Vegas...

Bigfoot never gets caught, never goes away. Maybe this time the Russians will succeed in nailing this mystery down. The forests of Russia are equal to the size of the entire United States. Could be a lot of secrets in a wilderness that vast.

This isn't a video effect and the blinking lights are not in any way an FAA-approved strobe, nor would lanterns blink. Balloons equipped with flashing lights might, though, so that's always a possibility. The head of the Baby James Foundation said they they were Chinese Lanterns released by the foundation as a publicity stunt, but did not explain how it was that the candles were able to blink on and off.

A maddening video. Certainly an authentic image of a light in the sky. No sign of any strobing or aircraft-like movement. But just as the witness gets under the object, he loses visual contact. Maddening but good video. Graded B.

Alison Kruse has been filming strange lights near her home in Pennsylvania for years. She has produced some very interesting footage, and this is no exception.

Despite the realistic background noises and the seeming difficulty the videographer has, this could easily be a CGI effect. It could be created in 10 minutes using any number of programs. The Temple Mount is under constant observation by many eyes, so perhaps more witnesses and videos will show up to support this one, if it is real.
Stories such as this continue to be reported from all over the world, as they have been for many years. There never seems to be an final resolution, and yet things are seen, and not all reports can be explained away.

This is quite a clear video of the lights of a dark triangle that are very commonly seen, usually at low altitudes, in the US. These are not FAA-approved strobes, which would--or should--be present on any aircraft flying outside of military restricted airspace in the United States. As the creator of this video has been identified, there is no evidence of hoax, and the lights are not FAA approved, this video is graded B.

This isn't an effect. It's unlikely to be a kite. It could be a balloon, but it seems unaffected by the wind. Probable unknown triangular craft. Graded B.

This could be a balloon or dirigible with strange placement of lights, but given the number of permits needed to fly such a thing in Russia, that seems doubtful. The video is not a CGI effect. Graded B. Thanks to Deb Kauble.
