When the mullet migrate northward, the fishermen in Laguna, Brazil are waiting. They rise early and take their places in line, waist-deep in the water, tarrafa—a kind of circular throwing net—in hand. Without a word, the dolphins arrive, herding schools of mullet towards the fisher line. The fishers say that the dolphins are an essential part of their fishing; they wait to fish until their marine helpers to arrive, in some cases standing for an hour or more, calling to the animals: “let’s wo
I went outside to play basketball with my son. while he went to invite our naborto play with us, i saw what i thaught was a possible aircraft. soon after i first observed the object a second one appeared. the two objects moved across the sky maintaining the same speed and distance untill the objects stopped in the north east sky wear they appear to increas in altitude until out of sight. during the time me my kids and naybors watched this a orange and white jet air craft flew what looked like a pattern around the objects. i do live close to an airport but it is not big enough for many jets to take off from. we attempted to look at the objects through a small telescope, looked like round, blue fire balls with red and green rings around them. from the ground with no optics the looked crome or silver. i only got one decent picture, with my cell phone camera.
We were outside on our back deck talking when we noticed a big dog like cloud that emerged from behind the tree line then a huge gust of wind that blew the fog away. she noticed the bright colorful object flickering in the sky. we just thought it was just a couple of planes at night. the objects flickered lights and were hovering and bouncing around. we felt amazed and in awe that we might have actually seen real ufo’s. we finally lost sight when we went to bed.
At 10:33 pm i went outside for a cigarette, and observed 2 blinking lights that looked like stars but brighter and flashing. as i kept watching one started to move and gain speed rapidly and a moment later the other one started moving too. they moved really fast and went in a path for a while and then changed direction and i could see the body of the craft was shiny and long. i could see multiple lights on both, which kept very quickly flashing from white to red. it was hard to see them after a minute because of how high up they were going and how fast, but i could see the moon reflecting off the craft when it flew past it. it was going so fast it looked like it was leaving a trail. eventually it flew out of view, but it made no noise. this was not airplanes or helicopters, i have never seen them stop and gain speed like these did. i live in a pretty rural area, and have observed a lot of planes and helicopters but this was not either. i also recorded on my phone but unfortunately it didn’t pick up what i was seeing.
The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) seems to quite clearly justify labeling it a movement or denomination. Millions of people around the world are part of its network of churches. However, many NAR leaders and advocates deny that it’s a denomination or movement. Many Christians who are attracted by NAR teachings and practices have no idea that something called the NAR even exists. For those aware of its influence and presence within Christianity, the NAR has branded itself as representing the return of authoritative apostles and prophets to the modern church, complete with miracles such as healing and raising the dead. On this episode, we talk to Holly Pivec, and authority on the NAR, to learn what it is, what its defining characteristics are, and how we should think about its teachings.
The episode is now live.
An OpenMinds.tv reader in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana spotted something odd in the night sky and was fortunately able to photograph it. The photos show a strange red blob in the sky he and his wife were able to see with the naked eye.
Patrick Malone says he and his wife were leaving the house when they noticed “a faint red blob” in the night sky above them. He decided to go inside and grab a camera. He then took several photographs with two different lenses using his Canon T2i DSLR camera. They watched the object for about 45 minutes. Malone says he was not looking at it, but his wife was, she was trying to get another picture, when it left. Via Facebook Messenger, Malone wrote that she said, “it did not fade it just disappeared.”
Via email, Malone gave me this account:
On the night of Wednesday September 13th, at about 10:00pm, my wife and I were about to leave our house in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. Before getting in the truck I looked up in the sky and noticed a faint red blob directly above. I said to my wife, what in the heck is that? She looked up and saw it as well. We stared at it for about 10 minutes before I thought about attempting to take a picture of it with the dslr. The entire time it was in the sky it did not move or shift, it stayed directly above at about 90 degrees. It was at such a sharp angle all of the photos had to be taken free hand. I have included the best photos I have of this weirdism. All photos are directly off of the memory card and not edited, they were all taken with a cannon t2i. The pictures where the blob is zoomed out were taken with a Takumar 55mm lens and the blurry zoomed in photo is with a Vivatar 75-205mm. Both lenses are manual non-electric. All photos have about a ¾ second shutter speed so the blob is brighter in the photo than it was by the naked eye.
The pictures are fascinating. The object does look like some sort of celestial object, but it is awfully bright. Malone says a friend told him that a missile or spacecraft launch could look like this, but he was not able to find a records of such a launch on that evening.
Malone says he does not know what it is, but would like help figuring it out.
I checked the website Heavens-Above.com to find out if anything was in the sky at the time, and there was a part of a Russian rocket — space junk — that circled overhead at about 9:24 pm, but that would look like a point of light crossing the sky, not a red blob. So, for now, at least for the Malones and I, the mystery continues.
If you think you know what it is, let us know in the comments below.

Harnessing the sun’s energy with orbital space power stations and beaming the power to Earth has been a science fiction dream ever since Isaac Asimov wrote a 1941 short story called “Reason.” But the idea has never quite gotten off the ground despite decades of intermittent interest and research for the United States and other countries. NASA hopes to keep the idea going by funding a one-year study of how much it would cost to make commercially viable space-based solar power into a reality.
The U.S. Navy has taken another step forward in deploying swarms of underwater drones for both scientific and military purposes. This past week, the Naval Undersea Warfare Center officially recognized the Navy’s first Unmanned Undersea Vehicle Squadron as likely the first of many military units dedicated to making use of undersea robots.
Much of the Navy’s existing underwater drone fleet with its scientific survey focus is operated by the Military Sealift Command on behalf of the Naval Oc
Reality may be just an illusion, what we see could be just one big projection of holographic anomalies.
It sounds crazy but in 1997 theoretical physicist Juan Maldacena already proposed that our Universe is not real and would be merely a hologram. while several other physicists back up Maldacena’s theory as they have worked out simulations which has provided some of the clearest evidence that indeed our Universe could be just one big projection.
If our entire existence is a program then who is running the simulations?
According to Oxford philosopher Nick Bostrum it is quite possible that an advanced civilization with enormous computing power has decided to run simulations and projecting holographic displays to create an illusion and we are all living in this illusion.
If that should be the case then what about the strange light anomaly in the sky filmed from an unknown location on September 28, 2017 that looks like some kind of projection which covers a part of the sky/clouds.
