UFO Sighting in Edmond, Oklahoma on 2017-09-24 20:30:00 – Silent sliver of gold light that grew larger until sudden disappearance in partially cloudy night sky

I was outside smoking a cigarette, talking with a friend on the phone. i usually look up at the stars at night while smoking. i noticed it by chance. at first, i thought i was looking at a tiny sliver of a crescent moon, half of it being obscured by partial cloud cover. but as i looked more closely, it grew into a triangle-ish shape, the “bottom”of the light widened while also shimmering in a waterfall-esque way, while the “top” remained a single point. it looked like it could have been an explosion in outer space. i don’t think it was a craft although i wouldn’t rule it out.

i heard no sound. the light remained stationary as it changed shape, until i looked away momentariliy to dispose of my cigarette in an ashtray and it just was just gone by the time i’d finished putting my cigarette out. i didn’t see it disappear. it just was there until it wasn’t. very weird.

upon further reflection i decided that what i saw couldn’t have been the moon behind moving clouds, because i know from experience that at that particular time of night during the fall, the moon would be further east in the sky. i couldn’t see the moon anywhere in the sky. i only saw the weird light, and stars. it’s worth noting that the place where the moon would have been at that time of night was entirely obscured by clouds, different than the ones obstructing the western part of the sky, where i saw the light(s?).

i’ve never seen a ufo in my entire 22 years of life and right now i’m starting to question my sanity.

Over 8,000 People Evacuated on Ambae in Vanuatu

One large-scale evacuation is already occurring in Indonesia as Agung remains restless, but in the South Pacific, another volcano is causing nearly as much trouble. Manaro Voui, on Ambae in the island nation of Vanuatu, has seen its eruptive activity increase dramatically, so much so that authorities have ordered over 8,000 people to evacuate. The island itself has a total population of only ~11,500, so over 2/3 of the population has been asked to move to the far side of the island due to th

UFO Sighting in Hesperia, California on 2017-09-24 19:15:00 – Looked to be reflecting the sun light. not burning in atmosphere. near earth object reflecting light possibly.

Very bright light. appeared to be a helicopter at first except there were no flashing lights. moved slowly through sky from south west toward the east at 7:15-7:20pm sept 24. watched as light moved east. intensity of light stayed consistent. last 5 seconds it dimmed quickly and was no longer visible. faded as it passed into the shadow from the earth. it appeared to move slowly in the sky… so either very large and far away or close, slow moving and very reflective. light faded at around 20 degrees in sky just after sunset in hesperia ca.

UFO Sighting in Cleveland, Ohio on 2017-09-24 02:30:00 – Strange ufos in night sky

I looked out my window at 2:00am witnessing a bright light in the sky between an opening through the leaves of a large tree in my backyard. the light was larger than any star in the sky. it was larger than any visible planet. as i watched it i noticed it was moving. with the help of the leaves, i could tell the pace of the movement more easily because it disappeared behind the leaves. it moved faster than stars in the sky, but much slower than airplanes, sattelites, etc. so, i grabbed my good camera and tripod and ran to my back porch.

i found openings between leaves and branches by standing, kneeling and in between then adjusted my tripod, zoomed in 30x, and began snapping pictures. it seemed to first be moving upwards in the sky. so i would have to adjust my tripod higher up. then it started on a slow path downward on what i believe is about 150-160 degree angle. eventually it seemed to stop and go straight downward at a 90 degree angle for the remainder of the sighting. i ended up having my tripod go from all the way down, then all the way up, then all the way down again.

i almost felt like the object wanted to observe something on the ground, maybe the nearby airport, or maybe the nasa glenn research center, both a few miles south of the objects. it moved slow enough for most to not think twice when seeing it, maybe thinking it is just a large bright star. although it was definitely larger and closer than even the largest star that can ever be observed in the sky. i have been studying ufos and e.T.S for a year now, so i definitely noticed that i was seeing something different here. i see things all of the time but this is by far one of the coolest sightings i have had.

i focused on this object that usually remained red and blue in the pictures pulsating fast in a pattern of red, white, blue. what i found very strange, were these smaller copper/silver colored objects that appeared in the photos i was taking near the main ufo. i did not see these objects myself at all, but they were obviously there. then i noticed another object very similar to the main one i was already snapping photos of. this one however, seemed to be blinking fast between the main colors of orange, white and yellow rather than red, white and blue. the last photo attached is of the orange and yellow object.

i observed these objects between 2-3am. if i held a ruler in the sky, the object moved over a foot within an hour. i do not know of a man made or known space object that moves at that rate and looks like the pictures i have attached. the whole time i felt i was looking at something really special.

Naked Bible Podcast Episode 178: Why the World Didn’t End on September 23

The short answer: Because the people who said it would are either inept Bible interpreters or false teachers.

For why that’s the case, listen to the episode – recorded on Sept 22.


September 23 has come and gone. The world didn’t end. Jesus didn’t return. There was no rapture. Planet X (Nibiru) never showed up. Why not? The answers involve both astronomy and sound biblical interpretation. We’ll leave the astronomy to experts in that field. We’ll consider the biblical reasons why the September 23 prophetic date-setting was nonsense. Those reasons are actually transparent, at least if we care about paying attention to the biblical text. In this episode of the podcast, we talk about five features of the passages used by false teachers who promoted Sept 23 as having end-times meaning. Join us for an episode on how to ineptly interpret the Bible.

KECKSBURG UFO INCIDENT: Eyewitness, Report To US Air Force

Eyewitness Report Re Kecksburg UFO (Pg 1) 12-9-1965
Eyewitness Report Re Kecksburg UFO (Pg 2) 12-9-1965

Eyewitness Report
To The US Air Force

Dec 9th, 1965


I have just returned from a convention in Miami beach, via Tampa on Air Canada Flight.

Since I just sighted this “thing” over your country I suppose you are the people I should report to.

At approx 4:45 p.m. and at about 10 minutes flying time south of the city of Pittsburgh when we were at 18,000 ft. I was looking out the window toward the east when I saw “it.”

A sort of pencil shaped object flying horizontal for a second then going into a 70° dive with an orange flame then appearing behind it. In a matter of just 3 or 4 seconds it was gone. Just like a rocket taking off but this was in reverse – going down.

Apparently I was the only one on board who saw it. However when I asked the stewardess to speak to the captain she told me that he had seen the same thing and was reporting it on the radio.

I was not drinking and have flown quite a bit as a passenger and am a former R.C.A.F. pilot from the last war. I have never seen anything like this before, especially the rapid changes in direction and terrific speed.

I hope that this information may be of some use.

Yours Truly,

Indonesia’s Agung Raised to Highest Alert for Eruption

A volcano that produced Indonesia’s largest eruption of the 20th century has been elevated to the country’s highest alert because of increasing unrest. As a result, tens of thousands of people have started evacuating the area near Agung on the island of Bali with memories of the 1963 eruption that killed over 1,200 people.

Most of the unrest has been a persistent and increasing earthquake swarm (see below) under the volcano that started around September 19. These swarms of relatively smal
