Kurt Russell alleges he witnessed famous Phoenix UFO event (VIDEO)

Kurt Russell claims to have witnessed a UFO above Phoenix, Arizona during one of the largest mass-UFO sightings in U.S. history. He discussed the event recently on BBC One’s, The One Show.

Russell is one of the leads in the new movie, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which was released recently. At the end of April, Russell appeared with co-star Chris Pratt on The One Show to promote the movie. During the interview, host Gyles Brandreth brought out a folder labeled Top Secret and X-Filish music began playing. Brandreth said he had searched the international news clippings for a story Russell and Pratt may be interested in.

Brandreth told the story in the clipping about an unidentified pilot who was flying in his private aircraft with his son near an airport in Phoenix. The pilot spotted six lights in the night sky and reported this to the control tower to find out what was going on. The tower said there were no other planes in the area.

Then in a grand finale to his story, Brandreth dramatically exclaimed, “Mystery unresolved!”

During Brandreth’s telling of the story, Pratt listened, interested, but with no real reaction. However, Russell smiled coyly. As soon as Brandreth finished, Russell chimed in.

“The tail number for that plane was Bonanza two Tango Sierra, and I was the pilot,”  Russell claimed, to the audible amazement of the other The One Show hosts. Pratt apparently was not aware this of this piece of information either. His reaction was to don an incredulous smirk as he listened to Russell tell more of the story.

Russell explained that Oliver Hudson (Goldie Hawn’s son from her first marriage, who considers Russell his father) and he were flying into Phoenix so that Hudson could see his girlfriend.

“We were on approach and I saw six lights over the airport in absolute uniform, in a V-shape,” Russell continued.

According to Russell, Hudson asked him if he knew what the lights were, Russell said he did not and decided to call the tower. The tower said their radar did not detect anything, so Russell said he declared it “unidentified” since it was flying and appeared to be six objects.

The two then landed, Hudson got out, and Russell returned to L.A. The two never gave the incident a second thought after that, until two years later. Russell says he came home one day and Hawn was watching a TV show on UFOs that was covering a famous UFO event in Phoenix.

“That was the most viewed UFO event. Over 20,000 people saw it,” explained Russell.

Russell says as he watched the show, he “felt like Richard Dreyfuss from Close Encounters.” He felt as though for some reason he knew something about the event. The show then mentioned that a general aviation pilot reported seeing the UFO upon landing, and that is when Russell thought to himself, “that was me.”

Russell went to go check his log books, and sure enough, the flight was at the time of the UFO sighting.

“The fascinating part to me is that it just went, literally, out of my head. Oliver never mentioned it. Had I not seen that show, I would have never thought of it. That, to me, was the weird part,” Russell told the group.

Pratt, who had claimed earlier in the show to be a skeptic when it comes to UFOs, still seemed a bit hesitant, so Russell added, “It is unidentified, it is flying, and it’s an object.”

Apparently, this is the first time Russell has told this story in public. Prior to this, Russell has not been associated with the famous Phoenix UFO sighting, which took place on March 13, 1997, and is referred to as the Phoenix Lights. He did not indicate when it was he saw the UFO program that reminded of him of the incident, but my guess would be that The One Show asked the guests for any interesting space or UFO related stories they could share, and Russell certainly came up with a doozy.

You can be sure Russell’s account will be added to the narrative of the Phoenix Lights UFO event, especially if I am the one telling it.

Why Do Flamingos Stand on One Leg?

Flamingos are striking not only for their brilliant pink plumes, but for how they often stand on a single slender leg, even when asleep.

Now scientists find that standing on one leg may counter-intuitively require less effort for flamingos than standing on two. It’s a finding that could help lead to more stable legged robots and better prosthetic legs.
The One-Legged Problem
One prior explanation for the mystery of why flamingos stand on one leg is that it conserved body heat, as doing

Death From Below: Invasive Lionfish Lurking in Deep Reefs, Sending Hungry Reinforcements to the Shallows

In the last few decades, scientists have come to appreciate the incredible creatures living on the reefs that lie just below conventional diving limits in what is called the mesophotic zone. These incredible biodiversity hotspots are home to more endemic species than shallower reefs, and conservationists are hopeful they may serve as refuges—pockets of relatively pristine habitat out of reach of anthropogenic stressors—where species under threat from pollution, overfishing, and even the effe

UFO Sighting in Abilene, Texas on 2017-05-10 17:52:00 – Ufo was cloaked in the top of the only cloud present on a very blue and sunny day. i initially looked up because i felt like i was being watched. several people in town saw it.

i was in our backyard playing with our dogs and waterering the yard. i kept feeling like i was being watched from a higher elevation. i assumed one of the neighbors was working on their roof. i turned to look right over our roof and noticed a cloaked shape, sitting in the top of the cloud, immediately. i took several pictures and even my 2 yr old lab/put-mix (dog) was looking up in the exact direction of the ufo. after about 5 minutes, i went inside to grab my 17 yr old daughter (i figured no one would believe me). we went to the front yard and she immediately saw the same shape trying to cloak itself in the clouds. we watched as two large birds flew toward the ufo and changed direction to avoid the shape. it seemed as if they had not been aware of the ufo until they were approximately 30 ft-40 ft away. after around 20 minutes total it sank down into the puffy cloud and dissipated. we took a few more pictures from the front yard before it disappeared. i felt really sleepy immediately after going inside, but after a 30 minute nap i was really energized the rest of the evening. my daughter felt more energetic following the siting as well. fyi…We live across the highway from dyess afb, and have witnessed several unusual things over the past year.
