So i will start at the beginning. it was a little bit past 9 pm. it was really dark outside. so i was browsing the web with talking to my friend via skype. the roomwas quite hot because of the radiators. so i turned them off and openes my window to let the cold air fill the room. a few seconds later i saw the light that is on my garden (activates if theres a moving object) so it turned on and i heard three quiet steps in the snow. so i was really scared because i thought there is a person on my property so i yelled “hello!? is somebody there?” and noone reaponded. i was listening with my window open for about 5min until i noticed an orange light on the left side of the church in my town. i thought it was an airplane but then i remembered that they only have green and red lights. so i was like “what the hell is this?” i watched alot of alien documentaries so i was really scared because i think that is a ufo then the light moved a little bit right i could tell that because of the church iland it was closer to it now.After tjat it was about 20seconds and it dissapeared tottaly. i checked flightradar24 and there was no airplane passing nearby but there was a military drone in the air with the callsign sloctrl1 but it was stationary above ljubljana and it wasnt visible from my house. i had a huge paranoia that night. i was hearing strange sounds comming from my in my home but i went to check but i found nothing and no strange sound…
8:00 pm, tuesday, february 13th. we were driving home from the grocery store, on a road through the mountains. we noticed a series of orbs moving horizontally across the sky in front of us. each orb would light up, and then would start to fade. as one would start to darken, the light next to it would light up, before they would all disappear. the first sighting of the same phenomenon, the lights appeared to be stacked in two horizontal rows, but went to only one row afterward. we pulled the vehicle over to the side of the road, as this happened again, and continued to watch. at one point, the orbs lit up and branched out to the left and right, before turning back and going toward the middle again. we turned the vehicle around and drove back toward the store, turned back and watched again. the video was taken, during the last series of light orbs. after that, the sky went black and nothing else was witnessed.
I first observed the object as i was traveling home on the mass pike at around 1 am. it seemed to be following me as i drove.I initially noticed four individual illuminated orbs in the four corners of the sky. they we encircling what i believe was a craft of some kind. as the craft began to diappear from my sight, they lights danced around each other gaining momentum and finally the object shot off into space.
Ants that hunt termites can risk getting grievously injured in battle, but that doesn’t mean its the end of the line.
In a newly published study, scientists observed ant medics caring for their wounded comrades, which may be the first scientifically documented example of such medical care in the animal kingdom outside humanity.
The African ant Megaponera analis specializes in hunting termites. After scouts of this ant species find termite feeding sites, the scouts lead columns of 200 t
One annoyance of ordering items from the internet is waiting for delivery. That’s why many companies are set on making sure you get your items as quickly as possible — like Amazon Prime’s free two-day shipping.
But shipping, especially fast, comes at an environmental cost. Previous studies have shown that moving goods by conventional aircraft is four times more carbon-intensive than by truck, which is 10 times more carbon-intensive than rail. Since many companies including Amazon, UPS, Bo
Mining bitcoin is not a task for your average Joe. As far back as 2014, researchers estimated that profitable bitcoin mining was out of the reach of commercial hardware. The increasing difficulty of solving the equations that yield the digital currency means that it takes an entire server farm today to make it worth it. And you also might have to move to Iceland.
Hot Water, Cold Air
The tiny island country has become a hotbed of bitcoin activity because it’s got an excess of two of the mos
If you’re a fan of drone technology or a drone pilot yourself, it’s easy to think the tech is mainstream. It’s not.
And it turns out drone owners are just a small sliver of Americans — just 8 percent own a flying drone, according to a December 2017 study from Pew Research Center. Even though many people don’t own drones, almost 60 percent have seen someone operating one.
As of January, more than 1 million people have registered as drone owners with the FAA. That includes both hobbyist
Coprolites, or fossilized dung, double as ecological time capsules, preserving an incredible collection of information about past ecosystems.
In Middle Earth (a.k.a. New Zealand) researchers from the University of Adelaide’s Australian Centre for DNA (ACAD) and Landcare Research NZ reconstructed a pre-civilization community using a bird dung time machine. Dung samples were amassed from numerous sites across the continent. The donors: four species of ratite birds including the extinct gian
