Blue planet-like object in the sky appears over Arizona and Spain

Witness states: I was looking at the contrails and noticed the planes made a perfect circular line around the sun above Arizona on May 22, 2016 so I took a photo of it straight up from the ground.

Later on I looked at the photo and saw a weird blue moon or planet next to the sun in the photo. Mufon case nr. 76533.

Last month a tourist photographed a similar blue object next to the sun over Spain.

Coincidence both photographers captured an almost identical image of the object next to sun? It seems unlikely.

In many cases such objects are just lens flares but if we compare the blue object with images of lens flares then it is certainly not lens flare.

Rare full blue moon associated with odd or insane behavior

The Moon will reach full phase – a full moon which will also be a Blue Moon on May 21-22 2016 at 00 16 EEST 21 16 UTC

Since ancient times, full moons have been associated with odd or insane behavior, including sleepwalking, suicide, illegal activity, fits of violence and, of course, transforming into werewolves.

Indeed, the words “lunacy” and “lunatic” come from the Roman goddess of the moon, Luna, who was said to ride her silver chariot across the dark sky each night. For thousands of years, doctors and mental health professionals believed in a strong connection between mania and the moon.

Hippocrates, considered the father of modern medicine, wrote in the fifth century B.C. that “one who is seized with terror, fright and madness during the night is being visited by the goddess of the moon.”

In 18th-century England, people on trial for murder could campaign for a lighter sentence on grounds of lunacy if the crime occurred under a full moon; meanwhile, psychiatric patients at London’s Bethlehem Hospital were shackled and flogged as a preventive measure during certain lunar phases.

Even today, despite studies discrediting the hypothesis, some people think full moons make everyone a little loony.
