UFOs Filmed Over Altadena, CA 

On 6/20/20 two unknown objects were filmed by a witness in Altadena. The person filming starts filming behind some small trees behind a house. After a little while the person moves to the left to get a better view.

What we see is one very floaty round object just above the tree tops and another go zipping by. During the filming the other object moves from left to right at a fast pace and it appears to be flashing.

I have attempted to enhance the objects in the video to give us more details and a better view.
Here is the video

Sphere Shaped UFO Over Utah

This odd sphere shaped object was filmed over Layton, Utah on June 10, 2020. I have seen very similar objects several times over the years.

Here is what the witness said about the objects:
"Two white sphere objects moving east over Layton. one stopped and was stationary for an hour then continued east. Other object was stationary over south Ogden for 30 minutes and then disappeared."

If you have noticed there has been a big uptick in reported UFO sightings. Several have been this spherical shaped design and seen all over the world.

I have attempted to enhance the video from Utah. I stabilized a short part of the clip and used various filters on it. Here is the video. It will have the complete clip followed by the short clip with enhancements.

Donut Shaped UFO Over Vancouver?

Okay so this donut or doughnut, which ever you prefer, was filmed in Vancouver Washington on 6/7/20.
The witness described it as "A metallic silver donut shaped object floated / flipped across the sky west to east in a straight line at a constant speed."

Once you watch the video it appears to be flipping out of control. I think I have a explanation for this one. I think this could be either an inner tube or a pool float that has been filled with helium or has just been caught up in a large gust of wind.

Have a look at the video and see what you think. I have also included some enhancements.

How to Be Sure: Things People Commonly Mistake for UFO Sightings

People are very eager to have contact with the extraterrestrial and that eagerness often plays a mean trick on them, leading them to mistake different things for UFO sightings.

Skeptics revel in  these mistakes, bringing them up as a consistent argument against any claim of a UFO sighting. If you wish to avoid such circumstances read here about the things and events people most commonly mistake for UFOs.


Do These NASA Photos Show A Missile Launch From The Moon?

By Dorraine Fisher


Alien and conspiracy theorists have contended for years the moon is some kind of hub for alien activity. And this NASA photo that recently surfaced is adding fuel to that fire. Literally.

Anomaly hunters searching this footage of the Apollo 11 are saying it may be a depicting a missile launch from the moon. The photo appears to show a dark cylindrical object with what they believe is a stream of exhaust fumes shooting out the back. Though experts argue there can be no exhaust fumes as such on the moon because space is a vacuum and wouldn’t allow for this. 

But what is it? Just at first glance, it looked to me like a solid object protruding from the moon’s surface. But since there is no way to locate the photo in NASA’s massive archive, we’re left to speculate. 

Nevertheless, conspiracy theorists are saying it could be evidence of a battle on the moon between earth and some extraterrestrial beings. But we may never know. 

What do you think? Missile launch from the moon or something else?

First, let me acknowledge the fact that TCC team member Greg Champy has done the majority of the leg work on this intriguing case. This is a very interesting video of a large group of unknown flying objects in the night sky. What is even more intriguing is the apparent flight path of these unknown objects. It appears the flight path leads to or goes over a Uranium Enrichment Facility.

Here are some details about the case.

Witness:  Tim ******** (Last name withheld)
Sighting Date: April 30th, 2016
Location: Northwest of Lone Oak,near Paducah, Ky
Number of Objects: 10-15
Video/photos: Yes, Video
 
Here is a map of the flight path


Here is the original video along with some enhancements.



Special thanks to Tim for sharing and allowing us to share his sighting.


Thanks

As some of you may know a few days ago I saw a UFO. I posted about it (here) and also told about my sighting on video (here). Well, today I thought I would take some time and see if I could find a sighting that was similar to what I saw and I was able to find something really close.

I found a video shot by journalist Raul Puma of an object that looks almost exactly like what I saw. The only thing that I think was a little different is that, what I saw appeared to be a little more round.  Puma shot his video in the state of Vilcabamba, city of Pucyura.


Here is Raul Puma's video of the UFO.


yep, that is almost identical to what I saw. I'm glad Puma was able to capture this on video as I was unable to.

I had not seen this video prior to my sighting. Some have suggested that his was part of some program by Google, called Loon. I do not think what I saw was associated with Google at all. What I saw became see-thru and then disappeared. I doubt Google has something like that floating around the sky. 

Thanks

I got the following report in a couple days ago and wanted to share it. It is an interesting report of an unknown object in the evening sky.

Here is the report.

-Start Report-

Name: Christine *******

Email Address: On file

State: WI

County: Waushara

Date of Sighting: Nov 17 2004

Time of Day: approx 7:15pm

Nearest Town: Borth...actual sighting in Borth

Length of Sighting: approx 1 min

How many Witnesses: just myself

Any Photos/Videos: no

Describe sighting in detail:
We have a 5 acre horse farm in a very small unincorporated town. That evening I had gone out to feed the horses. I didn't turn on the barn isle lights that night because the moonlight was shining bright at the end and provided me with enough light to make my way. I went down the isle and stopped to cut open a bale of hay. I grabbed about half of it putting it on my right shoulder and walked out the doorway of the isle. I walked towards the left and was about to toss the hay over the fence when I realized I could hear the horses eating (my husband had fed them before he left for a meeting, not telling me he had) So I turned to my right to go back into the barn, I was looking down at first watching my step as it was dark and I hadn't turned the lights on. As I came almost full around to my right I caught the lights out of the corner of my eye.
I stopped walking and turned my head, then my body and took several steps forward looking at these lights trying to comprehend what I was seeing. I got to the other fence line and had to stop walking, still with the hay on my shoulder. It took a few seconds for me to think...no way, it cant be...I was looking at these orangeish balls of light that at first appeared to be in a straight line, with 2 additional balls of light slightly smaller and to the upper left of the others in the line...the lights had a pulse to them..or movement..its hard to describe...if you've ever seen that sort of heat vapor the rises off hot black top, that's the closest way to describe the movement in the lights..and orange ish is the best color choice, it wasn't like any color orange I have seen though.

This is where it got super weird for me...I spoke out loud to myself in just above a whisper...I said..WTF is that..and no sooner did the words leave my mouth those lights started to go out one by one in rapid succession from right to left...that's when I realized it was circular shape and not a straight line. I could see as it came around from the backside right. I'm going to guess it was a couple hundred yards away and maybe 30 to 40 off the ground..the length of the lights was about 7-8 inches in my line of sight..my son tells me that mathematically that many inches in my sight would either make it very large and far away or smaller and very close by...I will go with the close by as it absolutely heard me speak to myself in just above a whisper tone. I dropped the hay on the ground and took off running back up the isle and into the house.

My 15 yr old daughter was the only other person home at the time. I was stumbling over my words trying to tell her what had just happened. I grabbed a piece of paper and drew out the shape of the lights..she looked at me and said holy sh*t that's exactly what I saw...she and a friend had told me back in Sept that they had seen a UFO in the field behind our barn in broad daylight..I thought they were just pulling my leg and I teased them all night about it. Apparently they were telling the truth.

-End Report-

I have emailed to Christine in hopes of obtaining the sketch she made. If I can acquire it , I will update this post.
A special thanks to Christine for submitting her sighting to us.

If anyone else seen this object or had another sightings, please use the link at the top of the page and file it with us.

Thanks

Over the last few days I have been talking to Derek about his sighting of a UFO. I think I have gotten
most of the major details now and wanted to share the report.

Here is the report in Derek's own words.

"In the winter of 05 or 06, I'm not really sure which, I had a sighting of something and I honestly don't know what. My wife worked nights and me days. We only had one car, so I would take her to work and pick her up. One night about 10 or 10:30 as I was about to leave, I was standing on the back porch having a smoke, we don't smoke in the house, and from left to right at about 30 or 40 feet up in the air and about 100 feet away a dark red or black flying object going slowly flew by.
It wasn't a living thing but it wasn't a air plane either. It made no sound, had no light, no nothing. The size of the thing was maybe five feet long and ten wide maybe less.

The sighting was at my home in Morristown, TN.  It was very cold that night, probably in the teens or twenties. I stepped out to smoke on my back porch there is a small park with a half court basketball court and a small softball field. There are street lights on the street that runs parallel to the park and they shine toward the park, so the small tree line that separates my yard from the park is silhouetted. 


Out of corner of my eye I caught a glimpse of something flying I looked over and up and saw whatever it was. The thing resembled a predator drone. It was flying very slowly. It made no sound or no lights of any kind.
I watched it until it went out of sight. As I said it was about ten at night and cold as crap, no one was flying a model or nothing at that time of night. I remember feeling weird like what is this thing but it didn't do anything.
Thank you, Derek"

Here is an overview of the details
Sighting date: Winter of 2005 or 2006
Description: Dark red or black in color. No sound or lights. Moving very slowly. Approximately 5 foot long by 10 foot wide.


Now, the question is ...just what was it? We may never know.

Thanks to Derek for sharing his sighting with us and corresponding back and forth with me.


Thanks
Tom

Bob Lazar

Bob Lazar burst on the UFO scene in the late 1980's. He made claims of working at Area 51 and of reverse engineering extraterrestrial technology, AKA UFOs. He claimed to work in a site called S4 near Area 51. Lazar was interviews by George Knapp of KLAS TV station and this is where Lazar basically spilled the beans about UFOs and alien contact. Lazar told fascinating details of how the UFOs looked and worked. He talked about test flights and even knew dates of upcoming test flights.
Lazar also talked about Element 115. Lazar stated that Element 115 was what powered the UFOs.

The thing about element 115 (Ununpentium) at the time Lazar was talking about it, is that it didn't exist, at least not to those outside of Area 51. Element 115 was first created in 2003 by a team composed of Russian scientists at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna, and American scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Element 115 was not recognized by International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) and the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics until December 2015. This alone should prove that Lazar had some prior inside knowledge that scientist outside of Area 51 did not have and it adds credence to his claims. To my knowledge, he (Lazar) was the first person to ever talk about element 115.

25 years later, Bob Lazar talked once again with George Knapp. Has his story changed? will he come clean? Was any of it true? This video was originally posted in 2014 I believe but many missed it and it is well worth a watch.

Here is the video.



Of course, Lazar has always had his critics and those who doubt his claims. Some of his credentials could not be verified but it is very likely that after talking about Area 51 and UFOs, that much of his history was wiped out. Really, I'm surprised that he is even alive and that he didn't have some sort of "accident".

In the end, I will have to say that I believe Lazar, but wonder if or why they let him tell about it.

Thanks

1947 Roswell Crash Timeline

While this may be of no interest to some people, I find the Roswell crash note worthy, if nothing else for secrecy that surrounds it.

So I wanted to share the Roswell timeline and some other things about the event. For years this mystery has continued to draw interest from the general public and numerous investigators.

The book Witness to Roswell is consider to be the closes thing to the actual truth that we will ever know. I hope to add it to my collection at some point.

- Roswell Timeline -

- July 4, 1947 about 11:50pm
Mac Brazel, rancher on the Foster ranch (75 miles NW of Roswell), heard a loud noise, different from thunder.
Two nuns at St. Mary's Hospital in Roswell saw what they believed was an airplane crash. The tower at the base tracked and reported a "descending flash" that they tracked on radar.

- July 5
Brazel was routinely riding/working the ranch property with his neighbor's son Dee Proctor ( age 7) and discovered the debris field 300 hundred yards wide and 3/4 of a mile long. He picked up a sackful of the "stuff."

- July 6
Brazel takes his sackful of stuff to Sheriff Wilcox in Roswell. Wilcox calls Intelligence Officer Jesse Marcel at the base and Marcel comes into town to investigate. Marcel decides to follow Brazel back to the ranch and they stay in a cabin that night. 

- July 7
Brazel and Marcel investigate the debris site on the ranch. Marcel stops at his house and shows his son (age 11, Jesse Jr.) some of the stuff. Marcel shows the stuff to his boss, Col. Blanchard.
Glenn Dennis gets a call from RAAF about the number child-size caskets he has in stock, and when could he get more; the base also called other times on how to preserve bodies that had been exposed to the weather - strictly for future reference. Glenn Dennis took an airman who had been riding on a motorcycle and hit a cattle truck to the base hospital and saw strange stuff in the back of ambulances.
Glenn went into the hospital and saw his nurse friend who said to get out of there immediately. He was escorted out of there by the military, with threats to his life.

- July 8
Col. Blanchard, head of RAAF (Roswell Army Airfield), told his PR officer, Lt. Walter Haut, to issue the press release (2 pm) about the UFO recovery. The military philosophy was to inform the public that the craft was not there anymore so the public would not attempt to explore the Brazel site.
Marcel takes some of the debris to Ft. Worth to Gen. Ramey. Ramey spreads the debris on the floor of his office, tells Marcel to step out of the room for something, and when Marcel returns, the debris has been replaced with weather balloon debris. Ramey tell Marcel not to speak and the disclaimer photo is shot (4 pm, for the July 9 newspapers). 
During the period of July 9-12, Brazel is held by the military so they could "inspire" him to modify his story to that of a crashed weather balloon. Brazel died remaining silent on this event.
Glenn Dennis met the nurse (per appointment) and she drew what she saw - big eyed alien - on the examining table; she was taking notes. She was transferred the next day to England and was declared dead soon after that (by the military).

- July 9
Gen. Ramey issues a press release to the AP that the saucer story is just a weather balloon. "Pappy" Henderson, pilot, flies the alien bodies (that he saw) from RAAF to 1. Wright Patterson AFB in Dayton, OH or 2. Denver, CO or 3. Ft. Worth Tx.

- End Roswell Timeline -


Over the years the mystery of what really happened in Roswell on July 7, 1947 has spawned many books, TV episodes, several movies and some documentaries.

The documentary Alien Autopsy: Fact or Fiction which was hosted by Jonathan Frakes, really got people debating the footage of the supposed alien and the crash in general. In that documentary there was an alien being autopsied and it was supposedly the real deal and found footage. I can remember when this was being hyped and everyone was busting at the seams wanting to watch it. I can remember watching it back then and over the years I have watched it many other times.

In 2011 a movie was released titled Alien autopsy and it had the star power of Bill Pullman. It supposedly was based on the true events of the real Alien Autopsy footage and the two guys who found it. To me the film more or less played as a parody but was somewhat intriguing.

As the years rolled by, I was satisfied in my mind that something unusual happened in Roswell and that there where efforts to cover it up.

I even read recently that there is now some more possible photographs that have surfaced from the Roswell crash.

In the end we may never know the full story of what happened in Roswell but at least people are still digging and looking for answers.

Thanks

I know most of you may have already seen the Turkey UFO videos but for those who haven't it is possibly some of the best UFO footage every.

These UFOs were recorded between 2007-2009.  The Turkey UFOs were seen by dozens of residents in Kumburgaz, Turkey. The objects were witnessed over the sea and filmed from the beach.

I'm guessing some of these are misidentification but there are some that are really interesting.
One part of the clip was blown up and some report that you can actually see the aliens. Here is a enhanced still frame.

I have not studied this or researched it in any great detail but I still wanted to share the photos and the video below.  The writing is really small at the first of the video and I can't make it all out.


UFOs over Turkey

Over the years I have got away from serious UFO research. I did this once I was satisfied in my mind that I knew what they were and where they came from. I will not get into all of that because many are just not ready, and my never be, ready for this information. I seen a few talk about this and some are right on with their information.
 
With that said, I do from time to time dabble back in the UFO realm.
Enjoy the video, I don't know where it comes from originally, so I don't know who to really credit.

Thanks

Black UFO in Oregon?

It seems I've been on a UFO kick the last few days but here again is yet another UFO video reportedly filmed in 2007 in Oregon. I do not know the back story or who actually shot the video. I have attempted to enhance the video. At one point the Object seems to disappear and then reappear ...could it have been caused by camera shake?

Here is the enhanced video.



Of course, I do know there are such things as UFO and have my own theory as to what they are and what their purpose really is ...but I'll save that for another day ....often times known objects are simply misidentified.

What do you guys think about this object?

Thanks

Oregon UFO
Another enhanced still frame from the video

I ran across an interesting clip of a possible UFO. The best I know is that it was filmed in Oregon back in 2007. I have no idea who filmed it or the back story. It appears as these people were just riding along in a car and noticed the object in the sky and started filming it. There was no audio with the clip and it was extremely shaky. I have attempted to stabilize the video and enhance it to bring out more details. I have also included a few extra enhanced photos with this post, including the one at the top.

Here is the enhanced video.



Here is the extra enhanced still frame





So, what to you think? Is it a real UFO or something else? Could the high number of Bigfoot sighting having anything to do with UFOs in Oregon?

Feel free to leave a comment below.

UFOs and Bigfoot?

UFOs Filmed While Bigfooting?

Many people connect Bigfoot and UFOs and there does seem to be a correlation between the two.

This video if from Stewart Taylor, While out bigfooting he filmed some odd lights in the night sky.
Here is what Stewart said about the video

"I noticed lights hovering above us over the trees.  They were Delta shaped and changing colors like a row of Christmas tree lights.  When I mentioned it to another, they seem to dodge behind the angle of the limbs, but my movement captures several of them. You can hear my excitement in my voice!"

Here is the video, I have done a little work on it to show where the objects are in the sky.



Now, we understand the objects in the video are hard to see with any great detail but it is interesting that these lights appeared while Stewart was out in a active Bigfoot area. Is there a connection?

I have heard several others talk about odd lights in the sky in noted Bigfoot area.

So what do you think, Is there a connection between UFOs and Bigfoot?


Thanks
~Tom~

An unidentified flying object was recently spotted and recorded in the night sky in Seguin, Texas.
There was not a lot of detail posted about the sighting or video. I have taken a couple of small snips from the original video and attempted to enhance it.

Here is the enhanced video.


I personally think it is a hoax and that it is most likely some type of computer animation.
What do you think?

New NASA SpaceCraft
NASA to test new craft

NASA's New Saucer Shaped Spacecraft
 
Look up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane .....nope it's NASA's new saucer shape space craft.
NASA will be testing this new saucer shaped craft on Tuesday (6/3/14). This new spacecraft is reportedly going to be used for landing payload on Mars, That is assuming it passes all these upcoming test flights.

Here is more about this saucer shape craft directly from the NASA website.

NASA’s saucer-shaped experimental flight vehicle, the Low Density Supersonic Decelerator, or LDSD, is prepared for a Range Compatibility Test at the US Navy’s Pacific Missile Range Facility in Kaua‘i, Hawaii.
What will it take to land heavier spacecraft on Mars? How will engineers slow large payloads traveling at supersonic speeds in a thin Martian atmosphere? Can this be done?


NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility is playing an integral role in potentially answering those questions with the Low Density Supersonic Decelerator mission, or LDSD.

To conduct advanced exploration missions in the future and safely land heavier spacecraft on Mars, NASA must advance the technology of decelerating large payloads traveling at supersonic speeds in thin atmospheres to a new level of performance. The current technology for decelerating payloads dates back to NASA’s Viking Program, which placed two landers on Mars in 1976. That same technology is still being used and most recently delivered the Curiosity rover to Mars in 2012.
Future robotic missions to Mars and even future human exploration will require more massive payloads than previously sent to the surface of the Red Planet. To accomplish these goals, NASA is developing new systems to deliver this important cargo to the surface of Mars.


NASA scientists and engineers borrowed a technique used by the ‘o’opu hue, also known as the Hawaiian pufferfish. The technique? Rapid inflation. For the pufferfish, it is simply a defense mechanism. For NASA, it is potentially the element that links to the future of space exploration.

Set for a test launch in early June from the Pacific Missile Range Facility in Hawaii, LDSD will use a 20-foot diameter, solid rocket-powered balloon-like vessel called a Supersonic Inflatable Aerodynamic Decelerator (SIAD) to test these capabilities.

To duplicate many of the most important aspects of Mars’ thin atmosphere, NASA plans to use the very thin air found high in Earth’s stratosphere as a test bed for the LDSD mission.
To reach the desired altitude of 120,000 feet, the LDSD project will use a helium-filled scientific balloon provided by NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility and Columbia Scientific Balloon Facility. When fully deployed, the balloon itself is over 34 million cubic feet. At that size alone, one could fit a professional football stadium inside it. The material that makes the balloon, a very thin film called polyethylene that is similar thickness to that of sandwich wrap, will lift the massive test article to 120,000 feet.

At that altitude, the test article will be detached from the balloon and a solid rocket motor will be employed to boost the test article on a trajectory to reach supersonic speeds (Mach 4) needed to test the SIAD.

Once at supersonic speeds, the deployment and function of the inflatable decelerators will be tested to slow the test article to a speed where it becomes safe to deploy a supersonic parachute. The balloon and test article will all be recovered from the ocean.

Two recovery vessels, Kahana and Konua, will recover the test article and balloon respectively. Before the articles can be recovered, a G-2 and a C-26 aircraft will focus on determining positioning of the articles for recovery. Wallops, with extensive experience vehicle recovery, will oversee the recovery operations for the LDSD mission.

In addition to the balloon operations and oversight of recovery, Wallops is the range services coordinator, has provided the core electronics for the test article and electrical ground support equipment.

NASA has identified six potential launch dates for the balloon carrying LDSD: June 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, and 14. The June 3 launch window extends from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. HST, or 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. EDT. The test can be viewed live on NASA TV beginning at 7:45 a.m. HST (1:45 p.m. EDT) or on the web at: http://www.nasa.gov/ntv


This could lead to some exciting times again for NASA and our space exploration.

Thanks

UFO emerging from a cloud
UFO emerging from a cloud


This post by Thomas Marcum, Thomas is the founder/leader of the cryptozoology and paranormal research organization known as The Crypto Crew. Over 20 years experience with research and investigation of unexplained activity, working with video and websites. A trained wild land firefighter and a published photographer, and poet.


The still frame above is from a very popular UFO video, it shows some people driving down a busy highway and stopping and filming what appears to be a UFO emerging from behind the clouds. The UFO also shoots out some blue lightening bolts. The video has been pretty viral on facebook and youtube. Normally the shared video comes with a warning that the video is being deleted from the Internet and that you need to share it. The question becomes is it real or fake? I have the answer but before we get into all that lets watch the video.


The video is very compelling to many people and many others are just unsure if the video is of a real UFO. Some just wonder if it's real or fake...well wondered no longer.

The above video was a viral marketing campaign created by a Brazilian advertising company. The company's name is Attitude Comunicacao, which is a company associated with Atitudemediabox. The campaign was started way back in 2011 and believe it or not it was for a pizza box advertising company, that company is Pizzboxx. Pizzboxx makes custom advertisements for pizza boxes.
Here is an example of one of their many pizza boxes.
Custom Pizza Boxes
Custom Pizza Box
A very cool looking pizza box, they also did a Spider-Man one and many others.  

Atitudemediabox also issues a statement about the video on their web page, found HERE.
Here is a translation of their statement:
"To disclose the approval between the AtitudeMediaBox and the PizzBoxx group wanted something unusual.
Our campaign is only at the beginning and already have many media by Brazil. "Ufo Rondon" was a story built not only by us, but by the whole population. Congratulations to all and thank you so much creativity.
Subscribe to our channel on YouTube (agatitudecomunicacao), follow us on Twitter (@atitudemediabox) and wait for the end of the viral film that almost became an epidemic."


Now, if that is still not enough to convince you, there was also a follow up video and here it is....


In the end, I would have to say it was a very good marketing campaign and very effective. The original video is still making the rounds on facebook and many are convinced it's the real deal.

All this talk about pizza is making me hungry, I wonder what is on our pizza boxes?

Have a great day and keep watching the skies...and your pizza boxes.

Thanks
~Tom~
