The Bluefin-21 failed to find any object of interest in its first mission.
The Bluefin-21 submarine has been deployed on its second mission in the search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, after data from its first dive failed to find any trace of the plane.

The autonomous underwater vehicle was sent on its second underwater journey on Tuesday night, leaving from the Australian vessel Ocean Shield.

The Joint Agency Coordination Centre said data from Bluefin-21's first mission had not captured any debris or other objects of interest.

The unmanned submarine's first mission had to be cut short after it exceeded its depth limit of 4,500 metres and an inbuilt safety feature brought it back to the surface.

Comment: MH370 appears to have disappeared without a trace. Unfortunately, SOTT doesn't share Mr. Mearns's confidence that wreckage will be found.

Woman captures image of UFO over Wallis, Wales

A young mother has told how she saw a mysterious silver object hovering in the sky above her house this morning.

Elyse O'Neill, 26, took these photographs on her smart phone after spotting what she described as a car-sized, silvery object above her back garden in Wallis, Pembrokeshire, early today.

The mother-of-one said she watched as the UFO split into two, reconnected, and then flew off.

She said: 'I was standing in the garden at 6.45am smoking a cigarette when this thing shot across from the moor over on the right, and stopped right in front of me.

'It was so bizarre, it took my breath away.

'I ran inside to get my phone. There wasn't enough battery left to film it, but there was enough to take pictures, so I started snapping away.

'It was hovering, spinning like a top, and as I watched it, it split up vertically into two pieces.'

The myth and mystery behind Australia's bush monster the Yowie

It's considered Australia's answer to the Loch Ness monster, with everyone from famous politicians to entire families having claimed to see the Yowie.

Now Yowie hunter Rex Gilroy believes he has found evidence that proves North America's Bigfoot is a distant relative of the Australian bush monster.

The Blue Mountains resident and author of several books on the subject says he has identified four different species of the Yowie, which are a sub species of Homo erectus.

Mythical El Chupacabra finally captured?

A Texas family claims they've captured the elusive "chupacabra," a mythical creature that supposedly attacks livestock.


According to legend, chupacabras suck the blood of cows and goats. Although there's never been real evidence the creature exists, sightings of chupacabras have been reported from Latin America to the southern U.S.

In the back woods of Ratcliffe, a small town in DeWitt County in South Texas, residents are certain they've found the mythical, despicable chupacabra, and this time, it's alive.

Hundreds in Ubud, Bali see fireball, thought to be 'leak' during Nyepi Observances

Hundreds, if not thousands, of residents of the Bali arts community of Ubud experienced a supernatural phenomenon when a giant fireball moved across the community on Monday night, March 31, 2014.

Known locally as a "leak" - flying fire balls are thought to be the incarnation of black magic practitioners and reside in the psyche of all Balinese, many of who will retell of personal encounters with the leak phenomenon.

The leak that visited Bali on March 31 was estimated to be the size of a large chicken cage.

The fireball first appeared on Monday night at around 11:00 pm in a position atop the Bale Kulkul at Bale Banjar Taman Kelod, just east of the Puri Agung Palace in Ubud.

UFO suspicions still cloud disappearance of Frederick Valentich

Close Encounters of the Third Kind

A scene from the film Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
The mystery of what became of pilot Frederick Valentich who disappeared mid-flight off the Victorian coast 36 years ago while telling air traffic control he was being followed by a UFO might never be solved.

But recently unearthed papers do shed some light on the bizarre incident.

Air safety investigation documents reveal an engine cowl flap from the same model Cessna 182 aircraft he was flying in 1978 washed ashore at Flinders Island five years after he vanished.

But opinions were divided on whether the 30cm long component, broken in three pieces and corroded, came from Valentich's doomed plane.

And now it appears the part may have been lost or scrapped.

Frederick's brother Richard has called on aviation authorities to ascertain whether the cowl debris remains in storage somewhere. Modern tests could verify if it was in the salt water of Bass Strait for five years.

"If there is some evidence that can link it then it is worth pursuing," Mr Valentich, 47 said.

In a bizarre coincidence, investigation documents held by the National Archives of Australia also show Frederick Valentich had spoken to his girlfriend about being taken by a UFO just a week before his Cessna disappeared.

Valentich told Melbourne air traffic control he was being followed by a long metallic, unidentified aircraft with four bright lights which at times moved at high speed or orbited above his plane, before reporting his engine was failing.

Nothing further was ever heard from him.

During an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday night, former President Bill Clinton said when aliens invade, he hopes it's not like Independence Day.

Clinton told Kimmel that while in office, he examined the Roswell and Area 51 files and confirmed we aren't hiding any extraterrestrial life there. But refuses to rule out the existence of alien life forms.

Mysterious unidentified flying object photographed over Texas

© Steve Douglass and Dean Muskett
Defense technology blog Ares reports on a mysterious flying object - most certainly a military classified aircraft - flying over the skies of Amarillo, Texas, on March 10. Aviation Week's defense expert Bill Sweetman says this is unprecedented but he's convinced it's real.
Three of us here - myself, Graham Warwick and Guy Norris - concur that the photos show something real. Guy and I have known Steve Douglass for a long time, and know that the reason that he sees (and monitors by radio) unusual things is that he spends time looking for them. Here is Steve's account of one of his better radio intercepts. This is more than a random image.

The photos tell us more about what the mysterious stranger isn't than what it is. The size is very hard to determine, for example, although the image size at contrailing height suggests that it is bigger than an X-47B. However, the basic shape - while it resembles Boeing's Blended Wing Body studies or the Swift Killer Bee/Northrop Grumman Bat unmanned air system - is different from anything known to have flown at full size, lacking the notched trailing edge of Northrop Grumman's full-size designs.

According to Sweetman there were two more planes and, after listening to the radio chatter, they believe the aircraft was not a drone. It seems there was a pilot in there. He also doubts "that you'd dispatch three large, classified unmanned aircraft anywhere in formation."
