UFO Sighting in Mineral Ridge, Ohio on 2017-07-05 00:00:00 – Bright light appeared to move closer and further maybe in a small circle. watched for about 30 minutes until clouds came into area.

My husband and i were on the patio having a fire and watching the stars. i saw a shooting star, a couple airplanes and then noticed this. i thought it was a star, but then it appeared to move further away and then closer and maybe in a small circle. we could see like a pink light around it also. then the clouds moved in and we can’t see it any longer. i have a star gazing app and i help it up. the app did not pick the object up like it does to all stars. it was not moving like an airplane would move.

How Big is the Biggest Possible Planet?

Last week, a team of astronomers reported the first potential discovery of an exomoon–a satellite orbiting a planet around another star. Part of what is so striking about the report is the scale of this possible planet-moon system. In this case, the “moon” appears to be about the size of Neptune; the planet it orbits is some 10 times the mass of Jupiter, or about 3,000 times the mass of Earth!
The system pushes at the limits of how we normally categorize objects in space and invites question

With Gene Editing, Ants Could Be the New Model Organism

An ant without a sense of smell is an ant that’s lost.

After creating ants that had been genetically modified to lack a sense of smell, scientists watched them wander away from their colonies, steal food, refuse to mate and fail to tend to eggs — antisocial behavior that contradicts the hive-mind mentality of most ant communities.

It’s likely not because of any sociopathic tendencies on the ant’s part, but because they’ve been effectively blinded. Ants use a suite of pheromones to comm

Alien Encounter in Melrose Park, Illinois on 2017-08-04 17:00:00 – Giant bat flew over us

I was coming out of best buy with my husband when i saw this thing fly over top of us and headed to the west. it was flying very fast and you can see it’s wings flapping as it flew away from us. i reached for my phone but by the time i pulled it out and brought up the camera it had moved farther away. i was able to take the one picture before it moved out of sight. from what i saw when it flew over it must have been at least six feet tall and had wings that must have been at least 7 ft. it was black and color but that was all i was able to see. i hope this photo helps but i’m sure it’s probably fuzzy as i am not the greatest photographer in the world.

Google Books: U.S. Government UFO Document Presented In the Book, The UFO Cover-Up: What the Government Won’t Say

General George C. Marshall, Chief of Staff (U.S. Department of Defense, Washington, D.C.), sent a 26 February 1942 memorandum to President Roosevelt regarding the incident known as the “Battle of Los Angeles.”

Quote from the document:
“MEMORANDUM FOR PRESIDENT:
The following is the information we have from GHQ at this moment regarding the air alarm over Los Angeles of yesterday morning:
‘From details available at this hour:
‘1. Unidentified airplanes, other than American Army or Navy planes, were probably over Los Angeles, and were fired  on by elements of the 37th CA Brigade (AA) between 3:12 and 4:15 AM. These units expended 1430 rounds of ammunition.
‘2.  As many as fifteen airplanes may have been involved, flying at various speeds from what is officially reported as being ‘very slow’ to as much as 200 MPH and at elevations from 9000 to 15000 feet.”
The document can be found on Page 236 (Page 238 in the printed book).

The UFO Files: Our Man in Sheffield

David Clarke  at The National Archives

     I spent two decades on the trail of the UK Ministry of Defence’s cache of secret UFO papers.

But little did I know that my FOI campaign triggered off a mole-hunt among the spooks – and a probe to discover who my sources were.

One of the surprises hidden within the latest UFO papers released at The National Archives is a declassified memo that asks the MoD’s security services to investigate why I wanted to see secret UFO files – and who might have been leaking data to me about them.

The memo – once classified ‘Secret UK Eyes Only’ – was written in August 2000 by a desk officer in the MoD’s secret-squirrel space intelligence unit, DI55. It was addressed to MoD Security

At the time DI55 was in a spin because a series of UFO report files had disappeared from its archives.

This came to light soon after one of its contractors (who has never been named) had completed his work on the infamous Condign Report on ‘Unidentified Aerial Phenomena’.

As the spooks rooted through their filing cabinets a letter arrived from me, addressed to
the MoD records officer at New Scotland Yard. At the time I had given up a job as a vacuum cleaner salesman and was working as a journalist, looking for a scoop.

Tony Blair’s government had introduced a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) but it was still five years from implementation.

So it was that I spent many hours working through UFO records at the National Archives in Kew and came across references to the mysterious DI55.

They were a branch of the Defence Intelligence Staff who, since 1967, had been the government agency responsible for the investigation of UFO incidents that might have some bearing on the defence of the realm.

UFO sighting reports were not usually subject to secrecy. But DI55 were also involved in top secret studies of aerodynamic missiles and satellites, so their very existence – and their interest in UFOs – was secret until quite recently.

If the truth really was out there – as The X-Files proclaimed – then I suspected DI55 would know all about it.

Indeed, in one of their recently declassified files, a desk officer refers approvingly to a Sunday People headline that describes them as ‘Our Secret Army Against the Aliens’.

My letter, dated 21 July 2000, requested access to their surviving records under the Code of Practice (a precursor to FOIA). It arrived in exactly the same month that someone in DIS realised a number of these files had gone missing.

This odd coincidence appears to have set alarm bells ringing in the intelligence agencies.

‘Dr Clarke is clearly well directed towards the documents he sees as relevant,’ the desk officer wrote to his security minders. This led him to be ‘suspicious’ especially as these files contained ‘very sensitive data’.

Why was I was interested in files only they knew were missing?

And who had informed me they were ‘missing’?

The memo implies that I may have been tipped off by someone in the Defence Intelligence Staff – perhaps even the author of the Condign study – who was aware of what the files contained, and had expressed an interest in them before. It continued:

‘Pending the publication of [the Condign report] on this subject DIST is very sensitive to the potential mischief that unauthorised use of the information contained in these files may cause if used to support uninformed Press and private publications on UAPs’.

MoD Security were then ordered to find the missing files urgently. They were also tasked to find out more about ‘Dr Clarke and his sponsors’ and any potential sources I might have in the intelligence community.

Quite what this investigation turned up remains a mystery – because the relevant papers are, you will not be surprised to hear, missing from the file.

But I can reveal that Our Man in Sheffield must have passed whatever security vetting was deemed appropriate by Her Majesty’s Secret Service.

The ‘missing files’ were found, and can now be downloaded by anyone – with or without security clearance – for a small charge from The National Archives website.

And in May 2006 I was invited to MoD Main Building to receive a first-generation copy of DI55’s once secret final report on UFOs – or UAPs, as they preferred to call them.

Secret no more. My job was done.

Postcript:

I eventually discovered the ‘truth’ about what DI55 knew about UFOs. It was hidden in plain sight in one of their own documents from 1995, released by The National Archives in 2017. Sent to the MoD’s UFO desk and signed off by a DI55 Wing Commander it says:

‘I see no reason for continuing to deny that [Defence Intelligence] has an interest in UFOs. However, if the association is formally made public, then the MoD will no doubt be pressurised to state what the intelligence role/interest is. This could lead to disbelief and embarrassment since few people are likely to believe the truth that lack of funds and higher priorities have prevented any study of the thousands of reports received’.
