The lost Sandringhams: When entire battalion vanished in a cloud

Most of the articles featured on Historic UK have a limited word count in an attempt to capture and retain the readers' interest and imagination. The following article concerning the Vanished Battalion extends to many times the normal length for reasons which will become obvious on reading.

The Background

The men of E Company had grown up together, playing cricket for the same village team, chasing the same girls and drinking in the same pubs and inns. And now, as members of the 5th Territorial Battalion the Royal Norfolk Regiment, they were about to go to war together.

It was the hot August of 1914 and groups of friends or 'buddies' across Britain, team-mates and work colleagues eagerly enlisted to fight the Bosch.

But what the soldiers of E Company had in common was something rather unusual: they all belonged to the staff of the Royal Estate at Sandringham.

UFO sightings soar to new heights in Canada

The number of UFO cases in 2013 is the second-highest number of sightings recorded in Canada during the last 25 years.
UFO sightings in Canada are sky high, hitting a total only seen once before in the past 25 years.

There were 1,180 UFO sightings reported in 2013, or about three each day, according to the Canadian UFO Survey, an annual survey released Tuesday by Winnipeg-based UFOlogy Research of Manitoba.

It is the second-highest number recorded in Canada in the past 25 years. The peak year was 2012, when almost 2,000 reports were recorded.

The spike in 2012 was likely an anomaly due to many people excited about the so-called "end of the world" in 2012 according to the Mayan Calendar, and reporting many lights and objects as UFOs, suggested UFOlogy Research director Chris Rutkowski.

Report of trianglular UFO seen over Cromwell, CT in 1960.
Whatever happened to good old circular flying saucers? While accounts of them continue to show up in police reports, newspapers, YouTube, etc., it seems like these days, there are more and more sightings and videos of triangular UFOs -- V-shaped, Dorito-shaped unidentified objects.

The earliest known reports of these unusual triangles can be traced to the Dutch East Indies in the late 1890s, around 10 years prior to the Wright Brothers' first powered airplane flight in 1903. Triangle UFOs were also reported from Scotland and England in 1895.

So who or what was behind the controls of these large, silent, black objects? And who, indeed, is still piloting them today?

West Virginians report 'intelligent fireball' UFO over small town

A West Virginia Dad in Sutton relates a UFO encounter his daughter and two friends had where a fireball-looking object appeared to move intelligently overhead, according to March 7, 2014, testimony in Case 54493 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The father tells the story from his daughter's point of view about the event, which occurred about midnight on March 2, 2014. West Virginia MUFON Assistant State Director Dennis Henshaw is investigating.

The daughter and two friends were on their way to pick up a friend from work when a bright light was first noticed.

"Light was bright enough to see from other lights," the witness stated. "Stopped to see what it was and thought it was a meteor. It came down towards a plane, commercial type, and thought it was going to hit it. Fireball stopped as if to let plane pass, and then continued."

The witness described the object.

"It made a zigzag pass, glowed brighter, and then dimmer. Had tentacles (shafts of light come out from top and bottom), shoot from top and bottom. It dimmed to almost nothing. We thought it was gone and then it came back on and finally disappeared behind the mountain."

Astronaut Leroy Chiao speaks up on UFO sighting during spacewalk back in 2005

Astronaut Leroy Chiao witnessed UFOs during a spacewalk outside of the International Space Station (ISS) back in 2005. The pioneering astronaut, who served as commander of the ISS nine years ago, finally speaks up on the UFO sighting that he experienced.

A recreation of the incident
From October 2004 to April 2005, Leroy Chiao stayed at the International Space Station to carry out a space mission. According to the Liberty Voice report, the astronaut took a stroll outside of the ISS with Russian cosmonaut Salizhan Sharipov to install the navigational antennas at 230 miles above the Earth and 17,000 miles per hour speed.

It was at that time when Leroy Chiao noticed some lights flew by at a faster speed. "I saw some lights that seemed to be in a line and it was almost like an upside-down check mark, and I saw them fly by and thought it was awfully strange," Mr Chiao recounted to The Huffington Post.

Did Mr Chiao's Russian colleague saw the lights that went by them? The answer is he was not able to because he was looking at the opposite direction.

A deliberate deception, a psy-op, or something real? Mysterious 'flying saucer' slides found in documents leaked by Edward Snowden

A document among the trove leaked by Edward Snowden contains slides showing images of flying saucer
A mysterious set of slides showing alien spacecraft have cropped up amid the trove of documents released by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden - and ignited a frenzy of debate among internet UFO fans.

The set of slides are part of a Powerpoint presentation created by British spy agency GCHQ - Government Communications Headquarters - and, among 50 uncaptioned images are three which seem to show flying saucers.

Alien-hunters and UFOlogists are now poring over the images - although one of the 'UFOs' has been dismissed as an "out of focus picture of a seagull having a poo."

UFO sightings on the First Coast, Florida

Reports of moving lights in the sky are being recorded throughout the First Coast. What could it be?

According to the National UFO Reporting Center, 23 sightings have been reported on the First Coast in the last six months, 12 of those sightings were in Jacksonville.
Darren Goffin likes to star gaze but for the past few months, he says he's seeing more than just stars. "Well the first sighting it was a lot of movement and just sparkles around," said Goffin.

Goffin decided to record the unidentified flying object. His video shows two bright objects; one is flashing and then it just stops, while the other very bright object continues to move.

"I haven't really told too many people, (is there a reason) thinking I'm crazy you know," says Goffin. "Everybody got their own beliefs and if you say 'oh I've seen a UFO' they'll laugh at you and make fun of you, thinking that you're hallucinating or something."
