People are often surprised when I say that mosquitoes are the deadliest venomous animal in the world (the deadliest animal period, really, if we don’t count ourselves). Mosquito bites—and the venoms delivered by them—kill upwards of 750,000 people worldwide every year thanks to the deadly diseases that harbor within. Most of those deaths are thanks to microscopic parasites in the genus Plasmodium, which are responsible for the diseases collectively called malaria. Malaria accounts for around
A photograph that shows a strange blue orb has people questioning what that strange light in the sky over Merrimack in New Hampshire.
Trish Wilson sent in the above photo to NH1 News asking, “What is this?” NH1 meteorologists took a look at the photo and said it looked like some sort of refraction of light from the sun interacting with the clouds.
Along with NH1 News, Wilson also sent the photo over to UFO Sightings Hotspot. They said the object was most likely a lens flare, pointing out that it looks very similar to one captured on a NASA camera on June 11. It can be seen in the video below around the 31 minute mark, reports NH1 News.
Indeed, I have discussed with Trish about this sighting and as NH1 News reported, in my opinion rather than a UFO sighting the blue orb is a typically lens flare, characteristic by the white dots visible especially in these kind of lens flares.
Though it is understandable that there is much confusion about this type of lens flare given the fact that almost every day people submit images of lens flares to the Mufon network wondering if they have photographed a UFO or not.
Above images show the NASA-ISS lens flare as well as similar lens flares captured in Ontario, Canada and Alta, Utah, this year.
More than 15 years after a U.S. Predator drone launched its first Hellfire missile, the United States remains reluctant to sell armed drones to even its closest allies. That hesitation in selling armed drones has left the door open for countries such as Israel and China to dominate military drone sales across the world. Now the U.S. government runs the risk of losing influence in a world of drone proliferation unless it reconsiders its policy on sales of military drones, according to a new r
Was taking pics of a nice sunset. when i got home and was a little surprised at what i saw. couldn’t make it to anywhere more picturesque so i took some pics through the power lines. i remember seeing the round shape and just thinking it was one of the spheres you see attached to the actual power lines you see. when i looked at the pics the sphere only appears to be touching the line in 1 pic. i was in the car but i was in a parking lot not moving. the first picture i just took a regular mode iphone 7plus, the next 3 were in hd. my heart kind of jumped when i went back to look.
A new, beautifully preserved specimen of a reptile from the Triassic boots the species out of the water and back onto land.
The fossil in question is a small reptile dating to around 241 million years ago called Esaurosphargis dalsassoi. It was found by researchers from Switzerland in the eastern part of the Swiss Alps, armored plates, frilly spikes and all. It’s only the second fossil of this species ever discovered, and the exquisite detail of the find is helping researchers to better u
Elon Musk wants to build intricate underground roadway systems beneath the country’s biggest and most sprawling urban centers. It may not be his most ambitious idea; let us not forget the plan to colonize Mars and turn humans into cyborgs. But The Boring Company, as the tunnel idea is called, is still pretty outrageous. For evidence, look no […]
In backyard taking pictures of chemtrails then after reviewing images saw the blue orb.
|When the rest of the world is setting off firecrackers high in the sky, 69-year-old Eric Staller hopes to be wowing the crowd on the San Francisco Bay, dazzling onlookers in his wacky Bubbleboat, a converted farm silo set on aluminum platoons festooned with 600 twinkling lights.|
“I always like to flash around Pier 39 and the Embarcadero,” Staller said in a recent interview. “I jfust like to see the looks on people’s faces, like ‘What is THAT?’’’
… Staller said he was paid $60,000 to create the fun piece, which he categorizes as one of his many “Urban UFO” projects. As part of the deal, he got to keep the Bubbleboat for the rest of his life.
|“Ufology today is in the state I would say chemistry was when chemistry was alchemy, a mixture of superstition, wild ideas, unproved claims, and yet out of that whole mess, finally the very first class science of chemistry evolved. And I think the same thing is going to happen eventually with Ufology, but right now, it is a mess. …”|
