The image below was taken by Apollo 17 Astronaut Harrison Schmitt, one of the last men to walk on the moon. A tight triangular formation of blue lights is clearly visible on the right side of the image above the sharply upsloping rise. This is not a cluster of stars and, given the fact that it is the only thing visible in an otherwise black sky, it must have been very bright. The bright surface of the moon has washed out any starlight.

In 2011, an amazing mirage appeared in China, and now another one has once again created a sensation. Of course, the general media has long ago forgotten the 2011 event, but not your Out There Editor. (To see it, click here.) The new mirage was less stable than the one that appeared in 2011, but both of them are far more detailed than a normal Fata Morgana, to the extent that the most recent one has caused a flurry of internet speculation that it is a test of one secret holographic project or another.

Our friends over at Mysterious Universe find some unusual stuff, and this video of the Jersey Devil is no exception to that rule. But your Out There editor wasn’t born yesterday, and I have to say that, while the wings are really flapping, the apparition is on a near-ballistic trajectory. So those wings aren’t working very well. But then again, there are semi-flighted birds whose trajectories look about like this. Chickens come to mind.

Whatever the truth, if this is a hoax, it’s very well done. If not, then–well, you figure it out! To further tantalize you, as it did me, click here to watch a lightened and slowed version of the same video.

This one stumped MUFON investigators, and it has stumped us, too. It’s a classic night light of a type that we don’t usually bother with because its generally not possible to determine much of anything about them. This one is different, though. First, it moves very quickly, then it slows down, stops and begins executing various maneuvers. It is also extremely bright, probably too bright to be a drone, but this remains an uncertainty. Graded B, Possible Unknown.
