I lived on top of a shop i was on the balcony kicking a football when i looked up the cloud was low and moving steadily, as i kicked the ball up something caught my eye just to the left, it was a very white bright light spinning at extreme speed at first just hovering then it started to zig zag at extreme speed at that moment i called out to someone have a look at that moment it moved towards me hovered then from a standing start took off at about 90 degrees at speed i have never seen in real life , no one believed me everyone thought i was mad even to this day i still get laughed at but i know what i saw and know it was real
Commercial jet afternoon flight from chicago to milwaukee. took window seat few rows ahead of emergency exit. looked out window on takeoff to see city, saw flattened rectangular object with triangular nose and small winglets alongside our jet wing. object kept pace as jet ascended, then pulled ahead so i saw three orange glows at end of object, but no exhaust and no wavering air from heat waves. stunned, then curious, got so into watching it, did not mention to other passengers. thought probably military drone test, took a break for a few minutes, looked back, it was gone.

Encounter in Alabama
The following case is the result of a lead furnished to APRO by Bob Gribble of the Phenomena Research Hot Line. The follow-up investigation was completed by Field Investigator Ed O. Brown. The name of the witness and some identifying names of the exact location have been changed to protect the principle, as requested.
Mrs. Pat Norris, twenty eight years old, lived with her husband, Carl, and three children in a suburb of Mobile, Alabama. On the evening of February 3, 1983, she had visited a friend in Mobile, and when the friend’s husband arrived from work, Mrs. Norris left and headed home on Highway 90. As she turned off the highway, she heard an explosion. At this point, her car began to vibrate, making it difficult for her to steer. She negotiated another turn off the road she was on, brought the car to a halt, opened the car door, and leaned out to ascertain the cause of the problem.
Mrs. Norris continued driving, and the vibrating stopped. She turned onto another road and saw that the woods ahead were brilliantly illuminated. At first she thought that there was a helicopter search in progress because of the lights, and she was very frightened. She again stopped the car, and at this point, she sighted a huge object about half a mile west of her. She later thought that the explosion she had heard earlier was the object coming down over a clay and gravel pit in the vicinity.
The thing was huge—later estimated to be seven to eight stories (70 to 80 feet) high and “six telephone poles” (210 feet) wide—and appeared to be moving toward her at four or five miles per hour. The evening had been clear and cool, and she had driven with the car windows closed. After the explosion, she noted a “chopping wind, a high-pitched sound, and a roaring sound” as well as the vibration. She noted the “whipping of the wind—like a tornado.”
When the object reached a point fairly close to Mrs. Norris, the object halted and all of the noise stopped. It was completely silent, and Mrs. Norris lost all the fear she had felt before. She then got out of the car to get a better look. She strained to take in every detail—feeling like a child with “unbelievable happiness.”
Carl Norris, Pat’s husband, said that although his wife told him of her sighting after it happened, he didn’t realize how important it was to her until she started checking books out of the local library pertaining to UFOs and related subjects.
Mrs. Norris estimated the time duration of the sighting as five minutes. As the craft appeared, Mrs. Norris’s attention was drawn to a top deck with a long window she estimated to be fifty-three feet and through which she viewed twenty or thirty persons, apparently oblivious of her presence, walking about as if they were changing shift. The wall behind them was curved and white. There were no instruments. The people did not appear to look out the window. The beings were pale-skinned and dressed in white one-piece suits. She judged them to be about five-feet-ten-inches tall, quite slender, but with chests larger than ours, the top of the head more prominent, and no hair. She noticed nothing out of the ordinary about their eyes. What did draw her attention was the great grace of their movements. The overall atmosphere seemed “sterile.”
Below this top-deck window was an opaque window. The area around it was all white. This lower window was in sections and was inset. The glass was tinted.
Below the center of the craft, a door was closing from right to left. All across the craft, she saw rivets and portholes. She said she could see the portholes as she peered into the craft. She saw some construction that included “huge I beams like they put ships together with, and beams holding the glass in there.” The bottom side was tiered upwards. The construction reminded her of a ship or submarine. She said it seemed possible that it could have been constructed here on Earth.
The very bottom of the craft was formed into a cross, made with one foot mirrors and an observation deck hung down and around the bottom with beings in it. In this case, unlike the top deck, the people were peering out, while overhead she heard a very low-pitched but clearly audible (almost like a growl) “announcement” coming from the area of the observation deck.
Mrs. Norris said she believed that the beings didn’t realize she was there until they were directly over her position.
She saw four pipes projecting six to eight feet out from the craft set in three or four foot square boxes. They had a hollow flange on the end like a tank cannon, and she believed “it looked like a weapon.”
The craft took a southerly turn as it went on from where she was parked. She said it was staying in the wooded area and did not cross Highway 90 again. It lit up the wooded area and the area beneath it as it moved on. It had white spotlights, and it had blue and red lights on its sides that intermingled, pointing up to the clouds and then down to Earth.
After the object was out of sight, Mrs. Norris continued home, arriving at 1:10 a.m.
On November 13, 2017 Arnoldo Liendo Arce captured a strange phenomenon in the sky over Antofagasta in Chile.
While filming a possible Halo or Sundog in the sky he not only captured a strange iridescent colorful rainbow cloud, but even more strange is a cloud formation that has formed itself exactly within the Halo or Sundog, like a dark disk blocking the Sun.
Halo’s and Sundogs are well known atmospheric optical phenomena caused by the reflection of sunlight by ice crystals in the atmosphere but….you ever have seen such a cloud formation covering a Halo/Sundog?
The first video shows the strange Halo/Sundog/cloud formation, the second video shows the colorful rainbow cloud which could be a possible earthquake light, a sign for an impending powerful earthquake.
Scientists recently found a strange sound emanating from the deepest part of the ocean, and a new study claims to have identified its source.
A drone picked up the eerie 3.5-second-long noise deep in the Pacific Ocean’s Marianas Trench Marine National Monument (whose lowest points sit nearly seven miles below the ocean’s surface) multiple times between autumn 2014 and spring 2015.
Now, according to a new study in The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, researchers are saying that the mysterious sound is an unknown baleen whale call.
Remember the scene in the original Alice and Wonderland movie when the walrus lures a group of baby oysters out of the water by playing the flute? Obviously, the plausibility of this scene relies heavily on oysters having a sense of hearing – but how realistic is that? These scientists set out to answer this question by playing different frequencies of sounds to Pacific oysters and measuring their valve movements in response. They found that “oysters transiently closed their valves in response t

Have we underestimated the first people to resettle Britain after the last Ice Age? Evidence from a variety of sources suggests that early Britons were more sophisticated than we could have imagined.
Archaeologists once thought that the story of the early hunter-gatherer Britons was lost to the mists of time.
The hunter-gatherers left almost no trace of their nomadic existence behind.
As a result, the stone-age settlers of ancient Britain were thought of as simple folk, living a brutal hand-to-mouth existence.
