This was the coolest thing i had ever seen. i was on my way to work and something high up in the sky caught my attention. it was tiny because of the distance it was from me but it had to have been the size of the average house and i could see it clearly. it was hovering directly above a large park. it was bean shaped. jelly bean shaped exactly. it was chrome, mirrored. there were no interruptions in the chrome. the thing was completely covered in chrome. it was truly exactly like seeing the chicago bean way up in the sky. it wasn’t curved as much as the chicago bean though. just curved a bit, like a typical jelly bean. but the resemblance to the chicago bean, almost the same shape, completely chrome, and reflective, possibly even very similar in size. the ufo i saw was very high up. it was just hovering there. then it turned just the slightest bit on its axis, catching the sun, admitting the brightest glow, then boom it was gone. it didn’t shoot off. it didn’t fade. it didn’t fall. it just disappeared. that was when i truly knew i had witnessed something spectacular.

my husband and i were looking at the stars. we have a very nice view from our back deck.
i saw it first. it was a bright white flash, the size of a bright star. it got very bright and faded slowly. then in 30 seconds – 60 seconds it would flash again in a different location. this went on for about 5 minutes total. it was not going in a straight line. it was going in reverse too. before it went out of view we saw it move very fast and far. my husband is very skeptical of these things but agreed what we saw was a ufo of some kind. it was amazing to see!!
At 9:04 pm, i was sitting on my front porch facing north. suddenly, i saw what seemed to be a shooting star slowly falling many miles northeast. unlike a shooting star, it never faded or left a trail; it remained a solid, glowing, very bright object of the same size. when it disappeared behind a house across the street, i wondered what it was, and even got scared that it could have been some strange glowing weapon (like someone was attacking us) – but settled on it being a shooting star, and started thinking about a wish to make.
a few seconds later, jogging my mind for wishes, i was totally shocked when the same bright object immediately bolted upwards – and then, immediately jetted to the east. i have never seen anything like that before.
i pulled out my phone, opened the camera app, and started recording video. i have 34 seconds, timestamped 9:05 pm, aimed at the spot i saw it happen – but it was too late. it only captured an airplane and helicopter nearby.
this was absolutely, unmistakeably not any of the following:
– a plane
– a helicopter
– a bug
– something in my eye
i am sober, and not sleep-derived. and i’m completely stumped.
I was with some friends at the nos primavera sound festival in porto, portugal. a friend noticed the swarm-like flashing lights flying over. i started filming at once. it was unlike anything we had seen and the sheer number of them made it quite impressionable!
I got home late and got out of my car and walked out of my garage. high up in the west (which was sraight ahead of me) i noticed a star sized orb colorfully pulsating. it was descending fast enough where i knew i needed to grab my good camera quickly in order to get a chance to get some good shots. however, it wasn’t fast enough at all to be any sort of meteor, airplane, helicopter, etc. i know of nothing of that size, pulsating very bright color, that would be that high up, but slowly come down in a straight line long enough for me to observe it over about five minutes as it lowered about 5-6 inches if i measured with a ruler right in front of me. once i got my camera, i zoomed into this orb pulsating every color of the rainbow very fast. it was so bright that i couldn’t see the shape of the object. it finally disappeared behind the house across the street from mine, then i couldn’t do anything. unfortunately, the video i got was horrible. yet, i did capture an awesome picture. i moved a bit when taking it, so there was a trail created of the object. yet, that trail allows anyone who sees it to observe the variety of color this object illuminated and just how bright it really was. this picture is a picture my phone took of the display screen of my camera and it still looks cool. i live right by a major airport, within a couple miles. i have airplanes roaring over my home constanly. this wasn’t a plane, plus it was a couple miles away, straight ahead (west), high up in the sky. you could argue it was coming in for a landing from miles away. but then it would not be descending straight down without coming closer to the airport which was a couple miles from me to my left (south). if it did land, it would have landed miles away from the airport with that behavior. also, last time i checked too, planes blink at night using two or three colors. they do not pulsate very rapidly (non-stop) between the colors of the rainbow.

Tiny robots powered by bubbles have successfully treated an infection in mice.
The achievement is another step forward in a field that has long shown promise, and is only now beginning to deliver. The therapeutic robots in this case were tiny spheres of magnesium and titanium coated with an antibacterial agent and about the width of a human hair. They were released into the stomach, where they swam around and delivered a drug to the target before dissolving.

In 1968, Jim Lovell became the first human to pilot a spacecraft — Apollo 8 — around another world. And two years later, his Apollo 13 heroics earned him an eternal place in spaceflight history. But those feats also left Lovell as the only person to visit the moon twice but never walk its surface.
In July, Lovell got his chance to leave a lasting mark on our satellite. Explorers have always named newly discovered landmarks. But things didn’t work out that way for Apollo astronauts — at le
Protecting species in peril doesn’t happen overnight. Rather, it’s all about stringing together small wins that, in the long-term, make all the difference. A little luck can also go far.
When waves surged on the Pennsylvania coast of Lake Erie early this summer, it could easily have been the end for a nest of piping plover eggs caught in the water’s path. Fortunately, a dynamic team of biologists, zookeepers and volunteers swooped into action, rescuing the eggs and rearing them at a quiet
