Latest Out There Stories
The Out There section collects stories about strange events from all over the internet.

The scientific community and the media so dearly wish that there was a simple explanation for UFOs. But the ball lightning story is so old, it's truly amazing that they would try to bring it back. Graded D.

The first image on this video is not a stereo artifact, but what it is cannot be determined for certain. Some of the subsequent images are not artifacts, either, but, once again, SOHO is a complex system operating in an extreme environment, and they could easily have a technical explanation. Or not...

Update: NASA's press conference has been rescheduled for Thursday and the Michigan man actually had no evidence of any ET life, according to Linda Moulton Howe, who spoke to him. No members of the press appeared at his press conference.

This is typical of childhood close encounter descriptions. If a child was awake when a close encounter began, memories of the event tend to remain vivid throughout life.

More Roswell debris footage is appearing on YouTube. This is a longer version of footage that appeared on the "Alien Autopsy" special in 1995. Supposedly a hoax, but is it?

Unusual objects are often seen in the imagery from NASA's Solar and Heliospheric Observatory satellites. But these are not actually present in space. They are artifacts of the stereo imaging process.

Who would be flying a secret mini-drone over Tenirife and why is an open question. More probably this object is a genuine unknown. Graded B.

Very strange lights over Fresno, Ca. Graded B.

Strange objects appear in Solar and Heliospheric Observatory videos on a regular basis. The standard explanation is that they are video artifacts. Our specialists are unanimous: this is not a video artifact. But what it is--that's another question. Graded B.

A good example of a brief CGI clip purporting to be a UFO sighting. Such clips almost always end suddenly, but who, taping such an extraordinary UFO, would just stop after a few seconds--unless, of course, they were not filming it but painstakingly animating it...Graded D.

This story from 1974 is a reminder of just how long black triangles have been sighted, and Missouri has been a hotbed of these reports for three decades.

This spectacular image is most likely a jet contrail illuminated by the sunset, but witness reports state that it was moving very quickly.

Famed UFO researcher Stanton Friedman finds this witness statement credible. The witness was six years old at the time he and his family stumbled on the Roswell crash.

A similar object appeared over Camirillo, California around Thanksgiving for six years in succession during the 1990s. One year, the ball of light was observed to explode.

This could be a sighting of a common type of meteor known as a green fireball, but it may also be a genuine unknown, as there is no mention of a tail.

Our China UFO story is here: http://tinyurl.com/278wnqy

The video does not have the structure of the r/c plane portrayed in the news reports, but it remains impossible to be sure unless the plane is flown again.

 No idea what this is or how to grade it. Could be a UFO, but also some simple object taped at night.

Let's hope this isn't worse than it seems.

This footage shows a distinct disk in just two or three frames. The witness was walking his dogs and noticed something flitting in the sky. He took the video without being able to see the object. Grade C.

The photograph supplied could be any number of things. The object does not appear to be hovering, but connected to something at the bottom left of the photo. But the witness testimony is compelling. Graded C.

There is no evidence here of video tampering, and the object is not identified, but also due to the darkness and the lack of video resolution, could be something ordinary. Graded  B.

Texas has had a higer than average number of UFO sightings in October.

Unfortunately, the video is pretty minimal, but the witness description certainly suggests an unknown. Flares, airborne lanterns and balloons don't move as rapidly as these are described as moving. Video cannot be graded, beyond saying that it is not a special effect or an animation.
