During May 2011 in Fort Worth, Texas, there was a series of extremely bright lights across a widespread area. Here is a video of those explosions of light:
There are a number of explanations going about for this event, mostly people saying they were exploding transformers. Some say it was from a concert with a special light show.
Who would be crazy enough to make lights that bright go off during a concert? I can’t imagine how bright it must be if you’re right next to it – I find that explanation very unlikely. Also, the lights spread across the entire camera screen, rather than in one concentrated area, like you’d expect from a concert.
Transformer explosions also seem a little out there, but not as much. Here is a screenshot of a YouTube transformer explosion as it happens (from November 2006):
You’ll notice the thin ray of light stretching from top to bottom, striking through the center of a splotch of very bright blue light.
However, this was only a small distance from the video recorder, but in the May 2011 video above you’ll see the lights are farther from the recorder. The user on YouTube who uploaded the video also says the lights in his/her neighborhood were out for “some hours”. In the video above, you’ll see no lights even flashing on and off – if so many transformers were exploding, why are no lights going off whatsoever, even for a second?
Here’s another screenshot of one of the explosions in the May 2011 video:
The light from the May 2011 video is much brighter.
I’m not sure, maybe transformers from 2006 don’t explode as bright as transformers from 2011, maybe it has to do with how they were destroyed (though neither of the videos seem to show any lightning, rain, hail, etc.)
People also claim UFOs were seen above the flashing lights. Watching the video from 0:20 and onwards, you can see small lights above the explosions pop into the screen.
Take note UFO does not mean “Alien Spacecraft come to kill us all” or any other form of that sentence – it means “Unidentified Flying Object”. An object that is currently not identified. Not a spacecraft, not a demon, not an angel, something I am currently incapable of naming.

Preliminary autopsies on 17 of the up to 5,000 blackbirds that fell over an Arkansas town indicate they died of blunt trauma to their organs, the state’s top veterinarian told NBC News on Monday.
Their stomachs were empty, which rules out poison, Dr. George Badley said, and they died in midair, not on impact with the ground.
That evidence, and the fact that the red-winged blackbirds fly in close flocks, suggests they suffered some massive midair collision, he added. That lends weight to theories that they were startled by something.
Earlier Monday, the estimated number of dead birds was raised to between 4,000 and 5,000, up sharply from the initial estimate of 1,000.
Keith Stephens, a spokesman for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, provided the new numbers.
Residents of the small town of Beebe awoke Saturday to find thousands of dead blackbirds littering a 1.5-square-mile area. The birds inexplicably dropped dead, landing on homes, cars and lawns.
The director of Cornell University’s ornithology lab in Ithaca, N.Y., said the most likely suspect is violent weather. It’s probable that thousands of birds were asleep, roosting in a single tree, when a “washing machine-type thunderstorm” sucked them up into the air, disoriented them, and even fatally soaked and chilled them.
“Bad weather can occasionally catch flocks off guard, blow them off a roost, and they get hurled up suddenly into this thundercloud,” lab director John Fitzpatrick said.
Rough weather had hit the state earlier Friday, but the worst of it was already well east of Beebe by the time the birds started falling, said Chris Buonanno, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in North Little Rock.
If weather was the cause, the birds could have died in several ways, Fitzpatrick said. They could easily become disoriented — with no lights to tell them up and down — and smack into the ground. Or they could have died from exposure.
The birds’ feathers keep them at a toasty 103 degrees, but “once that coat gets unnaturally wet, it’s only a matter of minutes before they’re done for,” Fitzpatrick said.
Lightning or hail are also possibilities.
Rowe noted that birds of prey and other animals, including dogs and cats, ate several of the dead blackbirds and suffered no ill effects.
“Every dog and cat in the neighborhood was able to get a fresh snack that night,” Rowe said.
Mike Robertson, the mayor in Beebe, said the last dead bird was removed about 11 a.m. Sunday in the town about 40 miles northeast of Little Rock.
Several hundred thousand red-winged blackbirds have used a wooded area in the town as a roost for the past several years.
Robertson and other officials went to the roost area over the weekend and found no dead birds on the ground.
“That pretty much rules out an illness” or poisoning, the mayor said.
But some residents voiced concerns.
“I’ve been to Iraq and back and seen nothing like this,” Beebe resident Jeff Drennan told local Fox16 News on Sunday.

Has a mythical creature made its way to Kentucky? Some people seem to think so, after a Nelson County man came across a creature with grayish, wrinkly skin and no fur.
Mark Cothren shot and killed an animal on Dec. 18 because he said he feared what it was, since he did not recognize it. He said the animal walked from the woods onto his front yard around 3 p.m. Cothren lives on Mount Carmel Church Road in Lebanon Junction.
“I was like: ‘every animal has hair, especially this time of year!’ What puzzled me is how something like that could survive through a winter with no hair,” Cothren said.
“Everybody is getting very curious, you know. [The] phone is ringing off the hook. It’s kind of a mystery right now,” Cothren said.
Cothren described the creature as having large ears, whiskers, a long tail, and about the size of a house cat. He says many people have tried to guess what the animal may be. He said he’s heard anything from raccoon to a dog to the legendary Chupacabra.
“Everybody is leaning kind of toward that – it’s the Chupacabra! People have come up to me [saying] ‘that’s what the thing is ’cause I pulled it up on the Internet'” Cothren laughed.
Legend has it the Chupacabra – also known as the “Goat Sucker” – kills goats and sucks their blood. The fabled creature has supposedly been spotted in South America, Mexico, Puerto Rico, as well as Texas and Oklahoma.
“It’s hard to judge what an animal is from just a photograph,” said Sam Clites with the Louisville Zoo. Clites say he would have to see the animal in person to study it and determine its species. At first glance, he believed the animal could be a raccoon or a dog, but not a mythical creature.
“This is an animal that’s native to our area, most likely that is suffering from some type disease,” Clites said.
Clites says it isn’t uncommon for an animal with a severe disease to lose fur and look unrecognizable.
Cothren says he has spoken with the state Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources and is preserving the animal to hand over to them.

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.”
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.

A mysterious UFO over a Mexico mountain has many watching. Many claim the object is a human or a “witch”.
The spooky figure was caught on camera as it was gliding over mountains in Nuevo Leon city. Those who were viewing the strange UFO claim it was wearing a cape, which lead to suspicions that it was a witch or a wizard. It was first seen in 2006 and now “Mexico’s leading UFO expert Anna Luisa Cid says the sightings were true after carrying out her own investigations.”
“An imaginary object is not recorded on film, nor does it produce over 40 witnesses.” Cid said.
