A triangular UFO over Ireland. Or was it California..?

  A video showing a UFO making its way over Ireland also made its way into many British tablets.

  The video shows a triangular UFO flying in the night sky.  It appears to be filmed through a telescope of some sort and it is said to not be visible to the naked eye.  The video can be found here:  Please note: the UFO comes later in the video, about 22 (twenty two) seconds into the video, and the first light is an airplane.

  The strange thing about this Youtube video is that it says in the description “filmed 12/5/08 in fremont, ca.”  Well isn’t that a twist.  The sighting was supposed to be in Ireland, but the video was filmed in California?

  The UFO in this video is very strange and it even makes a nice turn, too.  I like this video very much.

Air traffic controllers say a UFO landed in their airport and then took off

  Two professional air traffic controllers were doing their job when the incident happened; a UFO landed briefly on the airfield the two were overseeing and then took off at high speeds.  The report came in April 19, 1984, at four in the afternoon in the eastern coast of England.  The air traffic controllers asked that their names were hidden because they didn’t want to lose their jobs.

  The air traffic controllers explained that they were helping a small plane come to a safe landing on runway 22 when the brightly lit UFO came at amazing speed, touched the ground on runway 27 and then descented in a near vertical climb with huge speed.

  David Clarke, a UFO expert who has worked with the National Archives on the document release says that “It was a bright, circular object, flashing different colors, and after it touched down it disappeared at fantastic speed. The report comes from very qualified people, and it’s one of the few that remained unexplained.”

A man claims aliens barrage his home with meteorites

  A Bosnian man is claiming that extraterrestrials are annoyed at him in some way and that they bomb his house with flaming rocks.  He even says he had to upgrade his roof to reinforced steel just to protect his home.  He says he’s been hit five times in the past five months, the first hitting in November.

  The man, Radivoje Lajic, lives as a resident of Gornja Lamovite, a town that Google didn’t even know about before this story came out probably sometime in April of 2008.

  Lajic’s exact claim is this: “I am obviously being targeted by extraterrestrials. I don’t know what I have done to annoy them, but there is no other explanation that makes sense.”  He told someone this, though there is no credit in the British papers that tell this story.

  He also says that “The chance of being hit by a meteorite is so small that getting hit five times has to be deliberate,” and that scientists from Belgrade University in Serbia confirmed that all five objects were meteorites.

  The meteorites always fall when it is raining heavily, and never when there are clear skies.

  Lajic says that “I don’t know why they are doing this.  When it rains I can’t sleep for worrying about another strike.”

X-ray shows an alien face in the stomach of a duck

  On Sunday, May 21, 2006, an x-ray of a male mallard (duck) with a broken wing showed a strange picture.  The International Bird Rescue Research Center (IBRRC) was giving the duck an x-ray to see the wing when they saw the strange image of a face in the stomach of the duck.  The face looks like most of the original, stereotype aliens: large scalp with big, black eyes.  Take a look:


Here is the full X-ray:


The IBRRC staff discussed if an alien life form was either consumed by or trying to communicate with the people of Earth through the duck, because the center is located in an area of California known for its mysterious crop circles.

Karen Benzel, Public Affairs Director for IBRRC noted that the symmetry of the alien’s face is perfect, with an intense grimace, as if it was in anguish after being eaten.  “Since aliens are notoriously short, reports are they are usually no more then 3-feet tall, we initially thought the small proportions of the face meant the duck had consumed a juvenile extraterrestrial being,” Benzel quipped.  “We immediately knew this was something we had never seen before in our 35 year history.”

A necropsy was done by UC Davis veterinarians and showed the stomach had some grain in it, but no alien.

The IBRRC sold the x-ray on Ebay and they also sold (or are selling, I’m not sure which) T shirts with the “alien face” on it.  They seemed very commited to making money out of their find and not so commited to exploring the possibilities of this alien face.  I’d like to know how long it was after the x-ray that the necropsy was perfmormed or if the duck had time to digest the grain that was in his stomach.  I’m not sure if the face was just an illusion caused by the grain or if it was some strange work of aliens, but I’m not sure.

Karen Benzel said “Since aliens are notoriously short, reports are they are usually no more than 3-feet tall”.  What does that mean?  She acts like they know the height of aliens, like they get them a lot or something.  How does she know that the aliens are normally 3 feet tall?  It doesn’t really make much sense to me.

Anyway, it’s an interesting and unexplained story.

A couple in Australia has a close-to-collision experience with a UFO

 An elderly Australian couple claim they had a close encounter with a UFO while traveling along a Northern Territory highway.

Lawrie Fuchs, 70, and his wife Gwen, 69, were returning to their home town of Elliott following a trip to the neighboring state of Queensland last Friday when they say the UFO swooped them as they drove along the Barkly Highway.

Estimated to be about 20 feet wide, they say the object passed the vehicle with such speed that its slipstream forced their Mazda sedan into the middle of the road.

They were traveling in a westerly direction when the incident occurred.

“It was about 4 p.m. when suddenly we saw a dark, silvery flash and heard a loud sound as it passed,” Mr. Fuchs said.

“It was traveling at a terrific speed, very bloody fast, and there was no warning at all. I’m sure it dive-bombed us but I can’t imagine why.”

  The above information was found on Fox News.  The below information was found at Northern Territory News, which Fox News links to.  These links will open in a new window.

“I do a lot of bush work and over the years I’ve seen a number of strange, unexplained things,” he said.

Mrs Fuchs said she saw a little flash just below the sun visor then heard a loud whoosh as it passed over.

“I actually thought it hit the car, but there were no marks,” she said.

Mr Fuchs, a mechanic who has lived in Elliot for 40 years, says he took the incident in his stride.

“I don’t talk about it much because sometimes people don’t take you seriously.”

Last week, another man reported seeing a UFO near Tennant Creek. Alan Martin, who is deaf, was obviously shaken by his experience. The Aboriginal man in his 40s had bought alcohol and headed alone into scrub land to avoid being humbugged.

He described seeing a disc-shaped object at close range. His drawing indicated it had red, green and blue lights.

Police helicopter in Wales chases a UFO after nearly colliding with it

The U.K.s biggest selling paper, The Sun, reports that a police helicopter in Wales had chased a UFO.

“Stunned police gave chase to a UFO after it attacked their helicopter near a military base,” the Sun said in its Friday edition.   “The mystery aircraft zoomed straight at the chopper as the three-man cop crew prepared to land.”

This incident happened early June 8 in Cardiff as the chopper was preparing to land at the St. Athan RAF base.

“The pilot banked sharply to avoid being hit, then launched into a high-speed pursuit,” the Sun said. “But he was forced to give up the chase as the helicopter’s fuel ran low — and the UFO escaped.”

The cops admitted the story, though they did it rather devoid of care, simply stating: “South Wales Police can confirm its air support unit sighted an unusual aircraft. This was reported to the relevant authorities for their investigation.”

The police denied there had been an attack, a pursuit or any danger to the helicopter’s crew.

6 Opinions for believers and non-believers alike on UFOs and alien life

  I’ve been thinking about all of the opinions people have when it comes to alien life.  I have a little list here made out to state some of the opinions people may use in arguments or other conversations.  Please note that some of these opinions are held by people who believe in alien life and some by people who do not believe in alien life.  These opinions aren’t just my opinion, some of them I strongly disagree with.

#1: The universe is far too big for Earth to hold the only intelligent life

  This is a common opinion that most alien-life-believers will use.  They simply say that the universe is huge and that Earth can’t possibly be the only planet to hold life.  If there are so many planets and stars and such out there, then who knows how many of them could hold other life? 

#2: Alien technology could work in many ways


  This opinion is used by believers.  The opinion basically says that alien technology could be spectacular and that it could work in ways we thought impossible.  Most UFO sightings will  say that there was no noise when the UFO came and left.  Which people could use as a point against alien believers, because most aircraft makes noise.  Opinion #2 could be used to say that it’s possible that alien life could have developed engines that don’t make noise.  When people say Opinion #2, it’s pretty much their way of opening up a lot of ways that UFOs could actually be alien spacecraft.

#3: If even a small percentage of UFO sightings were actually alien spacecraft, then surely they would’ve made contact with us by now


  This opinion is used by non-believers.  It simply states that UFO sightings have been going on for a long time and surely, if even a small amount of the UFOs were actually alien spacecraft, then certainly they would’ve made some sort of contact with us.  Every day, thousands of UFOs are spotted, but none of them seem to have made any contact with us.  It can be argued that people have been abducted, but most of those stories are pretty insane.  It can also be argued that UFOs could be ‘studying’ us until they’ve learned our language or found some other information they may need.  We don’t really know at this point.  Now, as I said, there are reports of people that have been abducted by UFOs, but those stories are hard to believe because they are so crazy. 

#4: Alien life is real, the government is just hiding it from us


  This opinion isn’t really used in arguments very much, it’s just something that starts arguments.  This is a pretty crazy accusation, and I myself don’t think very much of it.  It’s pretty insane to think that the government is hiding something so major from us.  Surely if there actually was alien life, they would’ve told us.  This opinion is so sensitive that I won’t talk very much about it. 

#5: There are so many UFO sightings daily, there’s no way they could all be coincidence


  This opinion, another opinion used by believers, is using the number of daily UFO sightings as a hunch.  There are a lot of UFO sightings every day and most of them seem to be unexplained, though a very high number are also explainable.  Certainly not all of these UFO sightings could just be objects in the air?  There has to be something behind all of these sightings, right?

#6: People see what they believe.


  Used by non-believers, this opinion is short and sweet.  It simply says that people are expecting to see lights in the sky and other UFOs so much that they simply imagine it, and that only encourages them that aliens exist, which makes them expect even more.  Very simple, though I’m not sure if anyone has studied if it’s actually possible for the brain to imagine things like this.  It sounds pretty plausible to me.  Maybe some sort of doctor/scientist will address this matter or maybe they already have and I missed it.

 So now that you’ve read some of the opinions, you can comment on your thoughts or just keep them to yourself if you want.  Please remember that I’m trying to stay at a neutral stand with believers and non-believers so as not to cause any unwanted arguments or fights.

  Also, these are just a few of the thousands of original opinions people have on this subject.  There are a lot of opinions out there and most of them are sensitive matters that cause arguments quickly as people compare opinions to see which one is more foolproof.

  If you have any suggestions for opinions I could add, simply leave them in a comment.

UFO at Obama’s Inauguration?

  This is a pretty popular video and people have been passing it around, though I may be a bit late.  There was apparently a UFO over Obama’s inauguration that CNN filmed by accident.  There are quite a few of the videos on Youtube.

  Here’s one of them:

  This video is a run-over of the CNN footage that ultimately leads to a slow-motion, zoomed in view of the UFO and shows that it is flapping its wings.  The UFO, with that view, looks like a bird.  Black, medium sized bird with wings flapping.  To see the slow-motion zoom in, skip to the 1:40 (1 minute and 40 seconds) mark in the video.

  The strange thing about this video is that the UFO is very fast and it doesn’t look like a bird could move that fast.  To see the original speed video of the UFO, skip to the 0:34 (34 seconds, 0 minutes) mark in the video.

  Now I’m sure there will be a lot of people coming up with theories about all kinds of stuff like Obama brings the UFOs and the government is hiding it or whatever.  A lot of people will probably believe that it was a bird, especially the ones who saw the wings flapping.  I don’t really know what to think, in my honest opinion.  Seeing as I saw the wings flapping I thought it was a bird, but certainly a bird in DC won’t move that fast?  Here’s the link to the video I have already shown so that you may read comments: Youtube Video: Inauguration UFO

  I’m led to believe that the video is actually sped up, but several other Youtube videos of the same footage seem to have the same speed…maybe they all sped up the video to make it look “too fast for a bird”?

  Here is another video that seems to be at normal speed:

  In this video, you can see that the people on the bottom are moving at normal speed.

    Now, the video is pretty convincing to me, but everyone has their own opinion.  Feel free to comment and tell me what you think.

  Once again, the links:

  First video shown on the post, the one with the slow motion zoom in: UFO Obama Inauguration – CNN. Was there really a UFO filmed by CNN at the Inauguration?

  Second video shown on the post, the one I believe is at normal speed: UFO At Obama Inauguration

3 saucer-like UFOs sighted over Sydney

  A woman claims she photographed UFOs over a busy street in Australia.  The woman, Fiona Hartigan, says the UFOs were gone in a few seconds but she managed to get pictures on her iPhone.  Fiona says she had her iPhone out to take a picture of the sunset when the UFOs appeared as black.
