Latest Out There Stories
The Out There section collects stories about strange events from all over the internet.
Videos and some other stories are graded:
A--Probably true, B--Likely true, C--Likely false, D--Probably false.

Stories are not researched by Unknowncountry.com staff before posting and video evaluations are based on experienced observation, not video analysis.

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.

If this is authentic I'd be very surprised. The special effects would appear to be a gorilla suit and an out of focus camera. But this is the Out There section, so we'll give it the (slight) benefit of the doubt.

There is no reason to believe that this isn't an authentic video. It is impossible to determine what the objects are, but the fact that they are moving in parallel with no deviance means that they aren't Chinese lanterns. Graded B.

In his novel the Grays, Whitley Strieber describes in great detail a US spy plane called the TR that flies low and slow just like these triangles that keep showing up in the middle south and midwest. So, is this a US craft or not? He says that his TR is fiction. I wonder.

The UFO is present on the image provided on the CFH telescope's website, so it is definitely not something added by a CGI gamer. The CFH video can be seen here. Video graded A. (As to what it is, well, that's anybody's guess.)

This is an example of many multiple sun videos that are appearing online. In this one, there are two objects that rise before the sun. In most of the others, there is a single object, or an object is videotaped near the sun during the day. I would think that there are too many of these videos for them all to be fake, although, in the wild world of the internet, anything is possible. Still, it's an odd phenomenon.


A word of warning: do not look directly at the sun or attempt to photograph it without taking appropriate safety measures.

Why would the British Ministry of Defense choose to hide this document in their secret UFO files if there wasn't something in it? Was this a message from a dying world 80,000 years ago, or from earth in 2012, sending a warning back to 1998. Probably, it's pure fiction, but within a very few years, we could be sending such a message ourselves.

This sound was recorded two nights ago. Now a researcher has found evidence of some sort of underground activity in the area at the time.

This odd object over Sweden displays no motion at all. Is it a streetlight or a UFO? It's impossible to tell. It could be a very large object if it's actually floating in the sky. Video removed by the poster. I think we can assume that this was some ordinary object.

An Unknowncountry reader has pointed Out There in the direction of a video of the UFO that appeared over Cuzco.
Shades of the light over the Dome of the Rock. Not as bright and no video, but could we see the beginning of some kind of a process of acknowledging sacred sites? If so, will a pattern of some kind eventually emerge? Out There will be watching.

WorldUFOPhotos offers a wonderful collection of strange photos, some most likely authentic, but we're not doing any evaluations. To my eye, the strangest one is the floating object on Mars. NASA hasn't commented, of course.

This is right out of the Mothman Prophecies. Very odd and creepy story from near the Fukushima nuclear plants, about a month before they exploded.

This video is presented as being somehow related to Wikileaks UFO information, but the connection is never made clear. It could as easily be a clip from a movie as the real thing, but if it is real, it is, of course, extraordinary.

This video was shot by a resident of Williamsburgh, Brooklyn, and is typical of 'blue light' objects seen at night all over the world for years. There is no reason to doubt its authenticity. It is not an FAA approved aircraft strobe, but it could be a non-standard strobe on an aircraft, of course. Graded B.
