Ball of Light caught by scientists may be evidence of Hessdalen’s UFO Phenomenon, Norway

Scientists from Høyskolen i Østfold have presented a sensational image of the so-called Hessdalen phenomenon to many of other international scientists during a geological congress at the European Geosciences Union in Vienna, last week.

The image taken by one of the team’s many full automatic field cameras, which take images every five seconds, shows a glowing sphere which lights up the ground below.

This image stands out from the thousands of images that the research team has taken in Hessdalen and shows the ball of light in the center of the image which is photographed a hundred meters away and hovers apparently free at about thirty meters above the ground. The rainbow color is a side effect because the photo was taken with a spectra camera (Please note that the photo is taken from the original file).Credit photo of the phenomenon, republished by NRK.

Researcher at Østfold University College, Bjørn Gitle Hauge said “When the ball of light appeared on one of our computer screens in the tent, we ran out to see the phenomenon with our own eyes – but then it was already gone.”

“We have chosen this image, which was taken under controlled conditions, because it is a possible clue to what might be behind the Hessdalen phenomenon said Bjørn Gitle Hauge to NRK.

Over the years a large number of the mysterious light phenomenon has been published but now by presenting this particular photo of the luminous sphere captured by a scientific team, the Hessdalen phenomenon now has gained much attention among scientists world-wide.

“We hope to get more scientists interested in studying the HP or UAP phenomenon, which might lead us closer to understanding the driving forces behind it”, said Anna-Lena Kjøriksen from Høyskolen i Østfold. (Note: Scientists are not talking about UFO phenomenon, for research purposes they call it HP – Hesddalen Phenomenon or UAP – Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon.)

Possible white orb seems to release a beam of light above the surface of Mars

Images just released from the Mars Curiosity Rover, recorded on April 23, 2017 by the Right Navigation Camera reveals an orb and a strange beam of light above the surface of Mars that appears artificial.

The first image captured on 02.51.43 PM shows a specific spot on the surface without any sign of something artificial but a second image showing the same spot, captured on 02.52.10 PM, shows an unexplained white orb which seems to release a white beam of light towards the Rover.

Is it possible that a high-energy particle like a cosmic ray has hit the camera’s CCD (the array that converts optical light into an electrical signal) causing a temporary overload of charge, leaving a dot or a trail or the beam of light is produced by an intelligent device or being on Mars?

UFO Hoaxing Round-Up

I recently found an article on how the recent YouTube Ad / Monetization policies have rocked the “Secure Team 10” UFO Hoax site and came across a list of “related links” that was too interesting to pass up. Seems the UFO Hoaxing community (and those who vigilantly debunk such material) have been busy lately. Check out these links:

Huge Sphere apparently descends into the crater of the Iztaccíhuatl Volcano, Mexico – Video

Iztaccíhuatl is a 5,230 m dormant volcanic mountain in Mexico located on the border between the State of Mexico and Puebla. It is the nation’s third highest, after Pico de Orizaba 5,636 m and Popocatépetl 5,426 m.

This mountain is surrounded by mystery and legends that goes back to the Aztecs and even to previous cultures.

One of the mysteries: The unexplained lights that appear above the volcano. On April 4, 2017 a web camera recorded a huge Sphere which increases in brightness before it apparently descends into the crater of the volcano.

We may wonder whether these returning lights have something to do with an Aztec legend.

According to Aztec mythology, Iztaccíhuatl was a princess who fell in love with one of her father’s warriors, Popocatépetl.

The emperor sent Popocatépetl to war in Oaxaca, promising him Iztaccíhuatl as his wife when he returned (which Iztaccíhuatl’s father presumed he would not).

Iztaccíhuatl was falsely told Popocatépetl had died in battle, and believing the news, she died of grief.

When Popocatépetl returned to find his love dead, he took her body to a spot outside Tenochtitlan and kneeled by her grave. The gods covered them with snow and changed them into mountains.

Iztaccíhuatl’s mountain is called “White Woman” (from the nahuatl iztac “white” and cihuatl “woman”) because it resembles a woman lying on her back, and is often covered with snow.

Eyewitness report of a forestry worker who was attacked by aliens in Scotland

The mystery of what happened to a forestry worker called Robert Taylor on a chilly November morning more than 30 years ago is one that has baffled all who have examined the case, including the police, who keep the file open and consider it “unexplained”.

He arrived for work as normal in his company-owned pick-up truck with his Irish red setter Larah and started to walk down the path into the woods.

But as he rounded the path into a clearing he was absolutely astonished to see what he later described as a “large dome-shaped object” of about 20-30ft circumference hovering 15ft above the surface of the grass.

He said that parts of it seemed to disappear around the edges, it would seem to dematerialize so he could see the trees behind it, then solidify again.

As he watched it, what resembled two WWII sea mines dropped from beneath the object and rolled towards him and just before they reached him a burning smell, like burning brake lines, flooded the area and he heard a loud swishing noise.

The “mines” rolled across the grass and rods came out of them, which attached themselves to his hips and began to pull him towards the object.

At this point he lost consciousness, he didn’t know for how long but thought it could only have been for one or two minutes.

When he came to the objects were gone and there were marks and holes on the ground, more than 20 circular or triangular indentations in the grass. Robert also had a nasty graze on his forehead and another one on his chin, and an incredible thirst.

UFO – Lights in the Sky – Interview with Kate who had an encounter of the first kind!

Encounters with Unidentified Flying Objects have been categorized into five groups. When a person sees a UFO within 150 meters, it’s an encounter of the first kind.

L. A. Marzulli sits down with “Kate” who had an encounter of the first kind.

She was able to film the event although it’s very sketchy. She also drew a picture for me of what the three crafts looked like when she originally saw it.

THE PHOENIX LIGHTS: THE (ORIGINAL) REAL INVESTIGATION | 20th Anniversary of The Phoenix Lights



THE PHOENIX LIGHTS, THE (ORIGINAL) REAL INVESTIGATION | 20th Anniversary of The Phoenix Lights

     In the May issue of the MUFON UFO Journal, there appeared a very misleading article by Bill Hamilton on the Phoenix Lights of March 13, 1997. That article represented a biased judgment of events and incorrect facts. Now, with these facts in mind, I am presenting the true information of the still ongoing investigation.

At about 8:30 p.m. Thursday, the 13th of March, Peter Davenport at the UFO Reporting Center in Seattle, WA, started receiving calls, first from the northwest part of Arizona, of a formation of lights moving south toward Prescott, AZ. These lights formed a basic triangle with as many as six or seven lights per side with two red lights trailing.

The real time line for this event is somewhere around 8:00 p.m. MST. As the calls kept flowing in, the description changed as to how many lights were involved. Some even said there were no lights at all, but they could see a black mass blocking out the stars as it passed between the viewer and the sky. The general description was of a “V,” but it also resembled a crown with lights that formed an upward triangle. These lights were not like aircraft landing lights but more like stars. This description would change as the objects moved into the Phoenix area. The only consistent properties of the object(s) would be that there were no sound and very slow movement. However, if there was only one object, it could not have covered that distance in such a short time. This is a real “Catch-22,” but may be the key to the solution. I know of three V formations that night and there may be more.

As the readers may know, all of this was broadcast worldwide at 11:00 PST on Art Bell’s Coast-to-Coast talk radio program. I knew it would be a very busy day for me the next morning, so I retired. I was involved with the videos of this event even before it happened. I received a call from Tom Taylor, our state director for MUFON, that a person in Paradise Valley had been taping lights west of the TV towers on South Mountain for over two years, suggesting that I make contact with her to view the footage. I did so and set the next Wednesday, the 12th at 9:00 a.m., for her to come to my home to view the tapes. Due to the death of Mr. Taylor’s mother, I changed the meeting date to the 14th, Friday, the day after the events of the 13th. While talking to her on the phone, I discussed the idea that she might be seeing flares from the Gila Bend Gunnery Range. She felt this was not the case, so we met Friday around 10:15 a.m. Even before her arrival, the news media were at my house getting my reaction to the events of the night before. I had only seen one video, the formation shot by Chuck Rairden from Apache Junction. I told them that in a few minutes I would have a second video for all of us to see, because this lady had caught the event, too. The news programs broke the story with their 4:30 p.m. edition. From that time on, the phones never stopped ringing and the news people kept coming.

I started to collect all the videos I could find and interviewed other witnesses. The first videos I obtained were of lights that appeared to be over the city of Phoenix and it was those videos that made the news programs. It would be some days later before I could obtain the only video of five lights flying to the south taken at 56th Street and Carefree Highway. I have been involved in the collection of data, returning calls, and doing the interviews, which now number over seventy witnesses, of which I found 53 to be credible. The real investigating doesn’t start until the last reports come in. One of the best investigation tools was a two-hour talk show I did with Bill Strauss on KTAR radio. Mr. Strauss is a very fair talk show host and allows the callers to tell their stories.

It was during that show that I realized that the people who saw the V formations flying overhead out-numbered the people who saw the lights near the Estrella Mountains by a very high ratio. The V formation lights looked like stars with the brightness of Sirius, whereas the lights over the Estrella Mountains appeared as super bright landing lights. This was very puzzling, because I had the video of the flying V formation where the lights are barely noticeable. So, why did 98% of the sightings pertain to the V formation? Four things are responsible for this:

1. People were outside looking to the northwest to see the Hale-Bopp Comet.

2. The best time to view Hale-Bopp was between 8:00 and 8:30 p.m. MST.

3. It was in motion flying toward them.

4. The altitude didn’t matter as long as you were outside. You had to be at a higher elevation and have a clear view to the southwest to see the lights above and behind the Estrellas.

We will come back to the V formation again. Now we needed to find out why we had seven videos of the Estrella lights, but only a few witnesses.

At this point, all of the TV stations were running the same video clips. People were being confused and thought the videos showed the V formation, which they didn’t, but instead showed the lights to be over the city of Phoenix and that is what I mistakenly thought, too.

I don’t know how many times I looked at those tapes and couldn’t find the common thread. I received a call from a family far to the west of Phoenix where they, too, had taped the lights the night of the 13th and many other times. I made the long drive out to 222nd Avenue and Jackrabbit Blvd to view the tape. The tape did not impress me but the people did. They said that the lights appear between 8:00 and 10:00 pm were always in the same place and would drift laterally. They also said that a lot of helicopter and fighter aircraft traffic was observed at times when these lights appeared. The highest activity was in the mid-part of the month and the most common days were Monday through Thursday. The other key item was that a large area of Bureau of Land Management land had been cordoned off in the direction of the lights. The woman’s future son-in-law could see the land below the lights being illuminated like daylight. This was one of the keys, but I couldn’t see how it would fit into the puzzle at that time.

The next key was the person who taped both the Estrella lights and the V formation. He had some airline pilots, “off the record,” mark on the map the location and estimated elevation of the Estrella lights. Since I could not talk to them directly, I simply noted this on my map.

The final key to the solution was also the biggest mystery. Why did all videos of 3-13-97 at 10:00 p.m. have a different number of lights, different order of starting and decay, and shapes?

It was really dependent upon the observation point of the witness in the Phoenix area and, most important, how high their viewing point was. It turned out that the lights were not over Phoenix, but near the Estrella Mountains to the southwest. This determination was made after viewing all the video tapes and going to all but one of the sites and shooting 35mm film in daylight. Using the point marked by the pilot, I drew a line from each of the sites where the Estrella lights were taped. On the Rairden tape there are nine lights, but only eight lights on the Moon Valley footage. I re-ran the Moon Valley footage and just in the early part you see a light form briefly which then goes out, but did it really? No, something must have blocked it out, but it was still there in the Rairden footage. As the lights drifted downward, some lights were blocked out by the many small peaks making up the Estrella range.

In the videos that I acquired, there were two people who had been recording these Estrella lights for months. What I wanted to find was footage where a tripod was used and the zoom lens was left in one spot. To my surprise there were several clips that met these specifications. What I did next was to mark at the end of each segment the ground position on a monitor and the ending position of each light. When I ran the editor video deck in reverse, I could see each light rise in altitude and drift to the right or to the left. In all the video clips the results were the same. Just before each light went out, there was an increase in the descent of each light.

So what did this prove? Going back to the first newscasts, they ended by saying the Army National Guard said that just before 10:00 p.m. on March 13, 1997, they shot off target flares for training. We had dismissed this at first because the witnesses felt certain these lights were in front of South Mountain and over the city. This caused the early confusion of the V formation with these lights. The flares are very bright even at a distance of 50 miles and will overload a camcorder chip. They also have a parachute attached to them. As the flare is positioned and ignites, the heat from the flare heats the air above, which is trapped in its parachute, causing it to slow down its descent. Toward its final phase, before extinguishing, the heat output decreases and the flare will start to fall faster. It will also have a lateral motion due to its delivery system, either hindered by the prevailing winds or accelerated. All the videos that I tested for that night or other nights showed this feature. Even the control tower people at Sky Harbor Airport said they saw smoke emanating from the flares. Let’s quickly review the evidence for the case for flares behind the Estrellas:

1. These events have been going on for some time, three months or more.

2. The color is bright amber.

3. Smoke was seen by some.

4. The on to off time of each light is very consistent.

5. The general time lines and dates are repeated (for that night they occurred at 8:30, 9:25, and 10:00 pm)

6. Mostly week nights.7. The Gila Bend Gunnery Range hours match the time line.

8. All drop vertically and move in a lateral direction consistent with flares.

9. All video tapes that have the complete cycle, that is, from start to finish, show this.

10. Two videos, shot at close range, seem to show smoke flowing around them.

11. On one of the tapes, the person asks if they are flares.

12. The Army National Guard said they shot-off these flares.

13. Six news programs announced that the military said they were flares and two reports were from military pilots who located them at the Gila Bend Gunnery Range behind the Estrella Mountains.

Due to the multitude of events that night and the confusion of these lights with the V formation, I didn’t concentrate on this event. In fact, if these nine flares hadn’t been fired off that night, the real big story—the one that needs to be solved—would not have made the TV news. The reason is that there is only one video, so far, that has been brought forward, and even though it was shot with a Sony Hi 8, the lights can barely be seen. I had to stretch the light scale in Adobe Premier for it to be used on the first Strange Universe show.

Flares, then, appear to be the answer for the lights near the Estrella Mountains. Journal readers may have seen these videos on the national TV news coverage. However, they cannot be the answer for the V formation.

What was this V formation seen by so many across the state of Arizona the evening of the 13th? If you use the 42 second video clip to make a judgment, you will see the last light on the western side move to the rear and maintain its alignment. If you drew lines through the points to make a five-point V, the sides appear to be slightly bowed to the outside. You hear no sound but only the person taking the video and his comments. The night was hazy at that location so no stars appear in this video clip.

Luke AFB floated four stories about the V formation:

1. It was a flight of Blue Angels coming from Nellis AFB in Nevada. (Linda M. Howe said that a formation of five was also seen over Las Vegas heading southwest. The Blue Angels were not due for another day.)

2. It was a squadron of A 10s on a night training mission heading back to Tucson.

3. None of ours!

4. A private plane with a skilled pilot flying between restricted air corridors with a string of lights a mile long. I like that one myself — yeah, right!

The question is why did Luke AFB change their stories? The Army National Guard didn’t.

Even though the V formation may or may not prove to be a real UFO after a thorough investigation, the other so-called “sightings of the decade” may well fade into history.

As Paul Harvey says, “Now you know the rest of the story.” In the meantime, the real investigation is still going on …

Please see the map which shows the directions in which the witnesses were observing the flares beyond the Estrella Mountains. Thomas R. Taylor, State Director for Arizona, supports this investigation and preliminary report.

Five UFOs in formation passing the International Space Station

This video from NASA’s live feed shows a formation of UFO’s passing the International Space Station.

The footage which was not interrupted by NASA is of an earlier date and never shown on main media television.

It is always the question as whether these objects are of extraterrestrial origin or top secret technology that is being suppressed from the masses.

UFO follows Plane over Lincoln, New Hampshire

Unedited witness statement: On April 21, 2016 I was reading on my deck around 7 o’clock. I am told that military pilots train in the mountains around where I live (Lincoln, New Hampshire) and I’ve always enjoyed seeing them fly through.

This happens all the time, jets and helicopters are a common sighting. So I naturally saw the jet and did a double take, because there was something following it.

I immediately thought I was witnessing some strange aircraft, possibly military but it was not a jet. I knew it wasn’t a jet because it was actually right behind one.

The jet it was chasing left a long contrail behind it, but the UFO did not. The UFO was gaining on a jet. No helicopter could do that.

I was blown away and luckily got out my phone in time to take a video. I watched the object gaining on the jet for about 10 seconds when i lost them in the trees. I was very excited and anxious. I felt I have witnessed something very hard to dismiss as a “weather balloon” or some obvious type of aircraft.

Shortly after the jet and object left my range of sight I saw 3 more jets and 1 helicopter going the same direction (in my opinion chasing the UFO).

I also got another video of those other aircraft. I would like to show the video to an aviation expert and maybe get an explanation. I’m uploading to MUFON hoping for answers. Mufon case 81792.

Tornado hits NASA Facility while UFO moving around the Tornado in Akers, Louisiana

Severe thunderstorms barreled through the Southeast on February 7, 2017, dropping multiple tornadoes in southern Louisiana.

A resident near one of these tornadoes in Akers, Louisiana caught a strange object zipping around the tornado, despite high winds.

A single white object can be seen among the clouds moving around. The movement of the clouds indicates substantial winds, but the object moves about seemingly effortlessly.

Could or would a bird fly around tornado clouds like that? If so, it is a very white and reflective bird.

Perhaps it is a coincidence but the Tornado also hits the NASA assembly facility in Michoud, Louisiana. The facility sustained damage as the tornado passed through and the campus lost power.

A Lockheed Martin spokesman told The Washington Post all of their employees are accounted for but couldn’t speak for the NASA employees. The smell of natural gas was reported near the facility.
