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.

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."

The striking thing of this photograph was that when trying to capture the moment of the flood, the young man observed a strange red object shaped as a saucer in the sky.

Brazilian werewolf alert

Werewolf?

Every once in a while, I'll run into a story that just gives me the shudders, despite my generally rationalistic approach. All this does, of course, is to highlight a truism about the human condition; when it comes to a fight between logic and emotion, emotion usually wins. We like to flatter ourselves, and think that our highly-developed prefrontal cortices make us smarter than our non-human cousins, but when it comes to a real throw-down match between the parts of the brain, I'm putting my money on the limbic system every time -- the part of the brain that, along with the hypothalamus, governs the "four F's" of behavior: feeding, fighting, flight, and... mating.

A story this week out of Brazil highlights the third "F" -- which stands for the flight response. It could also stand for "fear," because that's what usually motivates an animal running away. The story, which comes out of the town of São Gonçalo de Campos, near Feira de Santana, in the state of Bahia, is about a rather terrifying cryptid that has been sighted more than once in local neighborhoods.

Even the government officials are taking it seriously. Apparently, for the last two weeks there's been a curfew in the town; no one is to be outside after 9 PM. It started when a man identified only as Pingo described seeing a five-foot-tall black monster, which ran at him; Pingo turned and fled, escaping (he said) only by the narrowest of margins. At first, the other villagers made fun of him -- until others had similar encounters. Locals are calling it a "werewolf."

All of this would have been nothing more than another tale of "I saw something real, really I did" if it hadn't been for the footage captured on a home security camera. Watch it for yourself:

Reptilian humanoid startles bikers in the Sonoran Desert, Arizona

A group of three mountain bikers reportedly saw a reptilian humanoid last week in the middle of a trail located in the Sonoran desert.

The bicyclists were riding the 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo race course, a 17 mile trail, when they spotted the creature.

"It's a tough one," said G. Johnson, 34, a self-described businessperson from Tucson. "It is a 24 hour track, so you better come prepared with more than enough food and water. There are times you just wanna go back and wish you had never got there in the first place. But when you see what nature has to offer you here...well, those regrets dissipate rather quickly."

Johnson states that he and two other friends were half way into the track when something "terrifying" made the group consider cancelling the ride.

Cluster of UFO's fly over London, Ontario, Canada

Location: London Ontario Canada
Date: 02/02/2014

Tonight, this is what I saw from the parking lot of Sugarcreek Village. I guess I'm one of "those" people now. I whipped out my phone and videoed as best I could under the circumstances. There were approximately 6-8 orange lights that seemed to hang in the air, but still move around each other. I'm a pilot, so I opened foreflight and called London tower. Nada on radar.

Ontario is one of the ten provinces of Canada, located in east-central Canada. It is Canada's most populous province by a large margin, accounting for nearly 40% of all Canadians, and is the second largest province in total area.
