Mass UFO sightings from July 2011


UFO activity has risen during July, 2011, and the video above attempts to compile some of those sightings, but I’m sure there are many more that couldn’t fit.  They all seem similar to each other, but they can’t be firecrackers or Chinese lanterns.

Three red orbs in triangle formation over Moline, Illinois – July 4th 2011


This video, claimed to be shot over Moline, Illinois during July 4th, 2011, shows three red orbs in triangular formation.  Very interesting…we can rule out Chinese lanterns (the first assumption for every UFO watcher), since they move in different directions and occasionally fade away and then brighten again.  Plus I don’t know of any fireworks that act like that.

UFO during July 4th, 2011 in Cache Valley, Utah


This UFO video from YouTube shows an object that continuously grows brighter and then dies out, seemingly hovering high in the sky.  It moves occasionally, but not by much.  It might be a bit out of focus, but I’m not entirely sure if that’s just how it looks in general.

As you can see, there are fireworks in the background, but they are much lower than the UFO, plus there aren’t any firecrackers I know of that can do this (not that I’m a firecracker expert…)

The description of the video on YouTube says that the video was originally 7 (seven) minutes long but was edited to cut out blurry parts.  It proceeds to say that no other editing was done on the video.

UFO in Brookfield, Wisconsin during July 4th, 2011


 

This YouTube video shows an orange orb flying through the sky.  It seems to be a bit out of focus, though, maybe due to how much zoom was applied.  It seems things like this have been filmed before and put on YouTube, and no one seems to think they’re Chinese lanterns or firecrackers.  The video description states there was no wind at all.

Here is the full description of the video on YouTube:

“Reddish orange orb ufo 7/4/2011 in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Light headed straight north. It appeared to be just above the treeline when it first started to lift off, and I did see a round almost balloon like outline to it when we first saw it. There were 4 of them, and all four went off into the distance and should have still been visible when they disappeared. All 4 took off and disappeared within 2-3 minutes from ground to skyline. A loud bang was heard from the 2-3rd one almost like a shotgun shell when it disappeared. It was confusing because it looked slow (balloon slow) at first and then rose faster and faster. Headed due north WITHOUT the wind at all.”

Guide to filming and uploading viewable UFO footage


I watch quite a few UFO videos per day, most from YouTube, so I decided to point out some of the things that discredit your footage or irritate your viewers.

Small time spent filming discredits your footage

The thing that ticks off viewers most is a ten second video of a UFO.

This is because most of the time, internet trolls who are trying to be…well, I don’t know, I guess annoying, will want to make a very fake UFO video so that the viewers know they are being hoaxed, which will spur replies.  You want to show you are not one of those typical trolls – in fact, you want to show you are not a troll at all.

What these trolls will do is spend a very small amount of time in the process of creating this film.  Say, ten to thirty seconds.  This is usually because they don’t want to invest too much time into the footage – they just want others to watch it, and if they could get ten people to watch those ten seconds that they spent one minute creating, they just made a troll’s version of profit.

I’m fine with a UFO video lasting thirty seconds if the UFO disappears or flies too far to reach by that time, but when you randomly stop the video thirty seconds in while the “amazing, 100% proof” UFO is still in the sky, it implies that you really don’t think it’s groundbreaking enough to spend more than a few seconds filming.

Zooming out every now and then may prevent a disoriented viewer

It’s difficult to tell where you are in some YouTube UFO videos.  This is because the video starts and ends with 300% zoom on the UFO and all you see is that light.

I like decent zoom, but I also like to see the surroundings with no zoom at least once throughout the video, that way I can get a better judgment on how big this UFO looks to a regular viewer in the city streets (or wherever you are).

Over-zooming on some cameras will blur the UFO

Sometimes, the camera will have too much zoom on the UFO.  Too much zoom is when the UFO starts to blur to the point where you can’t tell the general shape – it will look like it was made with no detail whatsoever in a pixel art program, like Paint.

Keep a steady camera

This is difficult for some people, and I don’t blame them.  It’s hard to hold a camera still, especially a large, hefty camera.  Don’t hate yourself if the video is a little shaky, if your hands are rattling from freezing weather.

I would suggest you attempt to find something to prop your camera against.  Set the camera on a nearby rock (as long as you don’t think the rock will scratch your expensive camera), on your car’s dashboard, on a plastic lawn chair, whatever is available that won’t crumble under the weight of the camera or damage the camera.

This works especially well if the UFO is still, but if it is moving, you can still try, just keep a steady hand pressed against the camera and make sure you don’t jerk the camera too much while following the UFO.

For fast-moving UFOs, don’t bother zooming in fully

If a UFO is moving so fast that you have to constantly jerk the camera around, there’s not much of a point in zooming in fully.  Give yourself enough space to comfortably follow it without it falling out of the screen every half second.

Don’t replace the sound when uploading

If you’re going to upload to YouTube or a similar site (maybe a site of your own), it adds credibility to leave the original sound of the video as it is.

This is because sometimes people will want to listen to see if they can hear an engine to the UFO or something similar that may add or remove credibility.

Find a way to acknowledge any passersby that are also looking at the UFO

If you’re in a city or similar populated area and there are others nearby watching the UFO, it will add credibility to get a small snip of footage of them staring into the sky, just as confused as you are.

This will help others know you didn’t add the UFO with a computer program, especially if it’s huge.  It would look awfully suspicious if there’s a gargantuan UFO hovering inches from skyscrapers nearby and no one else is looking at it.

Do not try to force your opinion on the viewer

This isn’t really to add credibility, it’s more to not annoying your viewers.  Honestly, saying things like, “You guys have to WAKE UP there are aliens EVERYWHERE and you have NO CLUE you DIMWITTED FOOLS!” will most likely start an argument rather than convince people to believe otherwise.  If you said those things in the video, leave the original sound and apologize for your rantings on whatever site you’re posting the video to.

Otherwise, don’t leave these dominative opinions in your comments or video description on YouTube (not even in little annotations on the video, which usually just say “Enter text here”).  No one likes to have others’ opinions forced upon them.

If someone’s opinion is stated in the comments section that defies your opinion, there’s no need to flame them or troll them or delete their comment, just leave them be; everyone is entitled to their own views and expressing those views.


Of course, you can do whatever you want when you film and upload your footage; these are just things that I suggest doing, as one who watches a fair amount of UFO videos online.

(Videos Included) Continued alien sightings in Australia


For a while now, a young man in Australia has been uploading videos to YouTube regarding what he believes is an alien in his back yard.  This post holds links to my articles on these sightings.

These sightings are recorded by Alex and uploaded to his YouTube channel, ThePolishedKnob.

Here’s the link to my article on the sightings, with videos and my comments included:

Alien sighted for the ninth time in Australia (Video Included)


~CONTINUED~

For a while now, a young man in Australia has been uploading videos to YouTube regarding what he believes is an alien in his back yard.  This is an update on the ninth sighting.

It’s suggested that you see my post on the rest of the sightings by clicking here if you haven’t already read it.

So here’s the video:

WARNING!  The following video is filled with swearing and obscene language.  If you do not want to hear this language, you may mute the sound by either turning off your speakers or hitting the sound button on the YouTube video in the bottom left corner.  It is suggested that you leave sound on, as it may give a better understanding to the video.

Don’t forget to turn the quality of the video as high as you can before watching!

This time, the recorder is trying to communicate with the being using a flashlight and speech.  He sets up the camera and walks down a bit further into his yard, off of the deck and onto the grass.

Around 1:45, the being begins rustling the tall grass around it and the recorder steps back.  He says he now thinks he “pissed it off” with his attempts at communication.

The YouTube user “ThePolishedKnob” is the one uploading these videos.  The channel has about 800 subscribers as of now.  There are 9 sighting videos as of now.

Has a real alien finally been accurately recorded in Australia?


A young man in Australia has  been uploading quite a few videos to YouTube lately regarding an ‘alien’ in his back yard.  These aren’t your typical videos posted by internet trolls; they’re actually quite realistic.

The Situation:

The video depicts a small alien that shows up, slightly concealed behind tall grass, and flashes a red light that looks similar to a laser pointer into the house or at the recorder.  Here is the latest, 8th sighting:

WARNING!  The following video is filled with swearing and obscene language.  If you do not want to hear this language, you may mute the sound by either turning off your speakers or hitting the sound button on the YouTube video in the bottom left corner.  It is suggested that you leave sound on, as it may give a better understanding to the video.

Don’t forget to turn the quality of the video as high as you can before watching!

0:37 – the being is first spotted

1:10 – the being emits the red light in the direction of the camera

1:32 – the power suddenly goes out and all lights in the house turn off

2:11 – the recorder says “Oh, I left the door open” followed by “I’m staying here”

2:29 – a smashing noise is heard and the recorder travels up the stairs to see if a window was smashed

3:23 – the power comes back on

3:47 – you can hear the being retreating

Many people are saying the recorder doesn’t sound genuinely afraid, which is what you’d expect if there was an alien in your backyard.  His friend offers no help to the case, merely repeating ‘nuh’ about 100 times throughout the video.

There are a few fear indicators in the video, however, that seem to hint that the recorder is scared.  First, at 1:10, when the being begins emitting a ray of light, the recorder jumps back inside and hides behind part of the wall.

Second, at 2:11, once the power is out and the camera pans back to the open door, the recorder says “Oh, I left the door open” and then says “I’m staying here”.  This is probably because he didn’t want to go to the door, not when the power had just gone out and a being was walking around in his back yard.  Not many young men would have the guts to go up and look out the door.

Later, a smashing noise is heard, which is purported to be a pot in the recorder’s yard.  This pot was later shown in a video uploaded by the recorder, smashed and being unloaded into a trash can.  He is offering the pieces to anyone who wants them, to run analysis or tests.  Here’s the video showing the bits of the pot:

The video shows the smashed pottery bits on the foot of the stairs to the deck.

This indicates that the being was perhaps trying to make its way up the steps and into the house where it accidentally smashed the pot.  This isn’t necessarily cold hard proof, but I felt it necessary to note it.

The YouTube channel “ThePolishedKnob” is the uploader of these videos.  The channel has about 800 subscribers as of now.  There are 10 sighting videos as of now.

NYC UFOs are now showing up in El Paso, Texas


The UFOs that caught the attention of New Yorkers on December 13th have shown up in El Paso, Texas, around two days after the NYC incident.

Sadly enough, as I mentioned before in the NYC UFO post, the news reporters are still oblivious to the fact that UFO means ‘Unidentified Flying Object’ not ‘Alien space ship that is going to squash us like miserable little bugs on a sidewalk’.  “Others, though, said it looked like a UFO.”

UFOs over NYC said to be balloons…but is anyone buying it?


Many people stopped to stare at the UFOs over NYC on December 13th, but now the UFOs are said to be balloons from an engagement party.  Read more on the NYC December 13th UFOs here on Alien Enigma (link opens in a new window).

Honestly, I don’t think it sounds very likely that so many people would stop and stare at balloons.  I mean, these UFOs got the attention of many, many people in NYC.  As one of the people in the video of the previous post said, ‘balloons don’t stand still’.
