Please note that the photo is an artist's rendering.

Yesterday, a strange contrail moved rapidly over New York. Now another one, similar to the one over the Pacific near Los Angeles on November 8.

See video

Except for the rapid flickering at the beginning of the video, this could be anything--a street lilght, a motorcycle in nearby hills, a flashlight. With the darkness, impossible to tell. Grade C.

If this object is high enough to form a contrail, it is moving at extreme speed. If it's low enough to be a very fast jet, then it wouldn't produce a contrail. Conclusion: despite what the newscaster say about it, t's displaying unusual flight characteristics. Grade B.

These objects in the first video move as if wind-driven, but against the motion of the clouds and much more rapidly. The circular cloud in the second video is very unsual. Grade B.

See video

This would seem to be a cloud, but if so, why are the local people so concerned about it. Grade B.

This is not an aircraft strobe. Grade B.

This could be any out of focus light. Grade C.

Not a computer graphic and probably not an aircraft, but the lack of detail due to darkness makes this impossible to determine. Grade B. Thanks @IQXS

This is a very good video. There is no evidence of tampering, and the object is clearly no ordinary aircraft, bird or other commonplace object. Thanks to Michael Lucking. Grade A.

There have been a couple of other minor shake events since this took place, but this video is correct: this is unexplained. It is a real video, posted by someone who watches these seismographs.

This encounter report from last night has been submitted to To submit reports, go to

Date of Sighting/Encounter (if known): November 7, 2010
  Time of Sighting/Encounter (if known):
  Location of Encounter: Rural road Southern New Jersey Cumberland County
  Details of Encounter:
I have traveled the same route for a couple of years for a weekly gathering of friends. I have always noticed the lights in the sky as there are lots of farm fields that open up the sight distance. I have lived local to an air base all of my life and know the difference between military/commercial traffic and whatever these are. Within the the last year there has been alot to see out here. Last night was the most uncomfortable i've felt riding down the back roads home. I saw several low flying almost stationary craft with bright lights. I had an encouter with one flying low very slow just at the side of the road above the trees about twice the height of the trees. It was the closest and clearest I have ever seen one. I was frustrated and quite afraid. I really wanted to be able to pull over so I could actually see what the craft really looked like. It was either triangle or rectangularly shaped. Had I had the nerve and a camera the shots would have been similar to those from Belguim. The area I am speaking of is in Cumberland County, Malaga Rd. I also emailed MUFON hoping someone braver than I can take some time to video or photograph what I saw. There is alot of activity in the area. The time was 7ish.

Strange one. The orbs appear to be anomalous, and the video is visibly from NASA TV. Grade A.

See video

This is a real video, but the object could be a plane, balloon or blimp. Grade B.

This could as easily be fiction as fact. There is absolutely no corroboration offered. Graded D.

Do all these low-flying triangles mean change of some sort? We shall see.

Very good story. Grade B.

Are these things about to land, or what?

Low and slow, all across the land. Landing? One of these days, so why not this one?

No grading on this one! Fiction or fact, it is certainly fascinating.

So many huge, low-flying triangles that the question has to be asked: are these the "TR" spy aircraft that figure in Whitley Strieber's "the Grays?" Are they actually ours, or is somebody just getting very, very close to us?

Object moves as if it is on a course typical of aircraft, but the shape is strange. UFO or helicopter? Graded B-C.

Some strange activities in the deep woods.

No hoax, but also a very short sequence. Could be a bird, but probably not. Graded B.

Doesn't look edible, no question there. If it really dropped from above, we should be scared. We should be very scared.

Don't miss Linda Howe's interviews with Charles Halt and others. Dreamland August 21, 2010.

The British UFO wave was at its height six months ago. Will it continue?

Defnintely not CGI. At first, a dead ringer from Chinese candle lanterns. But then one shoots off into the night. Grade B.
