What is this strange phenomenon filmed in the sky over Hope Valley, Rhode Island?


Droplets: The unexplained dots in the sky dissipate like clouds in this remarkable footage
The unexplained phenomenon shot in the US appears to show particles melting into a clear blue sky

It's a scene straight out of a Hollywood movie - scores of strange unidentified flying objects that appear to melt into the sky.

This video - shot in Hope Valley on Rhode Island on the east coast of the United States - is so odd it's provoking a number of theories online.

A mushroom ring in the woods
For thousands of years, the sudden appearance of a ring of mushrooms was taken as a sure sign of otherworldly presences. These rings would seemingly appear overnight, or travel from one location to another, with no clear rhyme or reason. Warnings of the dark forces that must create these abnormalities were passed down between generations, and the folklore of fairy rings was established.

These fairy rings (fairy circles, elf circles, or pixie rings) are a naturally occurring phenomenon. A fungi creates a ring or arc shape within the soil, affecting the grass in the area, and grows up through the greenery forming a circle of mushrooms. These rings—a lovely surprise and considered good luck by some, or a dark omen and nasty lawn problem to others—can spread from a very few inches to 164 feet (50 meters) or more. The ring found in Belfort, France, is thought to be the largest ring ever found. It is approximately 2,000 feet (600 meters) in diameter, and an astonishing 700 years old.

Comment: There are several interesting things about the topic of "fairy circles". First of all, it is a well-established fact that lightning (or a special type of thunder) stimulates mushrooms growth and makes them multiply. Considering the electromagnetic nature of meteorites, reference to "falling stars" and "flying dragons" is also very curious.

More so, taking into account many cases of strange disappearances and the existence of the so called "anomalous zones", it wouldn't be too outrageous to speculate that the described circles were indeed a result of some sort of electromagnetic event, and anyone who entered them experienced a range of strange or even "supernatural" phenomena.

For more examples of various mysterious circles, read the following articles: Also consider the following excerpt from Superluminal Communications dated 18 July 2015:
(Perceval) What are those so-called "Fairy Circles" in the desert in Namibia?

(L) What do they look like?

(Perceval) They're in the desert, and it's like really low brush or grass. But there are thousands and thousands of these circles.

(Andromeda) Small circles in the sand, but they've never been able to figure it out.

(Perceval) They're like dead patches in a circle where the grass doesn't grow.

(Andromeda) Like sand circles.

Bizarre shape-changing UFO filmed over New York


The object seemed to change from shape to shape
These bizarre shapes were caught on camera by a man when he started filming the planet Venus over New York.

The video was shot by Tony Shea, who runs his own online space and paranormal site called Shea Magazine, after he said he "felt presence".

He wrote in an article with the footage filmed in New York: "I got up this morning at about 2 am, awoken by a strange dream.

"Somewhere around 5 am I noticed that there was a strange round object in the sky.

"I thought at first it was the reflection of my computer off the window.

"But then something else strange happened, I felt an odd presence watching me somehow, like a beam coming through the window, and then I grabbed a camera and started recording.


UFO enthusiasts say NASA's Mars Curiosity Rover photo shows object that looks like a crashed Star Wars destroyer

© www.ufosightingsdaily.com
If you thought Star Destroyers were only found in Star Wars flicks, you may be wrong. A photo taken by NASA's Mars Curiosity Rover shows an object that, to some UFO lovers, looks like the same warships seen on the big screen.

"I found this anomaly in the latest Curiosity Rover photo. The black object looks like a crashed UFO," wrote UFO Sightings contributor Scott C. Waring.

He added that the "craft" is only about 2.5 to 3 meters across, "so it probably only held a few passengers."

Comment: These NASA photos are showing a lot of interesting objects, but these "UFO enthusiasts" seem to have overactive imaginations.Yes, there are plenty of phenomena ignored and ridiculed by mainstream culture and academia that probably have 'non-mainstream' explanations, but some of the theories, claims, and connections made by these people are just ridiculous. Kind of like the 'Flat Earth Theory': pattern recognition run amok!

Unidentified buried object found in new NASA Mars photo


UFOs videoed by multiple witnesses over Los Angeles

This video shows the incredible moment that a group of bystanders at the Griffin Observatory saw not one, but two UFOs hovering above Los Angeles.

Chris Montague was with a group locals and had simply gone up to the well-known viewpoint to get a look at the city by night, and instead got far more than he bargained for.

What they saw appeared to be two burning lights in the sky, hovering above the city. In the video you can hear both the person holding the phone and bystanders all speculating as to what it could be.

When questioned whether the burning object was a UFO, a man responds 'It has to be, it's not even moving'.

He then jokes, 'We're going to have guys in black suits confiscate our phones on the way out'

Thankfully he didn't, and the video has since ended up on YouTube. While it's difficult to tell visually thanks to the low quality of the smartphone's camera the audio and comments underneath the video seemingly confirm that the phenomenon wasn't just your average 'weather balloon' incident.


The strange and unexplained phenomenon of raining objects

© Trevor Victor Harvey Gallery
Raining stones by Mackenzie Thorpe.
Throughout history, there have been numerous recorded instances of strange objects falling from the sky - fish, frogs, candy, jellyfish, beans, nuts, seeds, and all manner of bizarre and unlikely objects.

A popular theory explains these events as being caused by strong winds that whisk things up from the ground or water and hurl them towards an unsuspecting town many miles away.

But can this theory also explain showers of heavy stones that have been known to damage houses and even kill people and livestock?

A Long History of Raining Objects

One of the first recorded instances of "raining" objects comes from the writings of Roman philosopher and naturalist Pliny the Elder, who documented storms of frogs and fish in the 1st century A.D. in what is now Italy. In the 3rd century A.D., ancient Greek rhetorician and grammarian Athenaeus wrote in his work The Deipnosophists (Book VIII):
In Paeonia and Dardania it has, they say, before now rained frogs; and so great has been the number of these frogs that the houses and the roads have been full of them; and at first, for some days, the inhabitants, endeavoring to kill them, and shutting up their houses, endured the pest; but when they did no good, but found that all their vessels were filled with them, and the frogs were found to be boiled up and roasted with everything they ate, and when besides all this, they could not make use of any water, nor put their feet on the ground for the heaps of frogs that were everywhere, and were annoyed also by the smell of those that died, they fled the country.
Since then, numerous other unusual instances have been documented, including a storm in Italy in 1840 that deposited thousands of partially germinated Judas Tree seeds native to Central Africa; a dusting of sugar crystals in 1857 in Lake County, Calif.; a rain of hazelnuts over Dublin, Ireland, in 1867; live pond mussels in Paderborn, Germany, in 1892; and jellyfish in Bath, England, in 1894.


Unidentified buried object found in new NASA Mars photo

This is just an amazing find. This dome like object was found not far the the Mars rover and looks like it has window openings along its sides. Paranormal Crucible of Youtube found this and focused it for us. Excellent find.

Comment: The 'object' can be seen just below these words in the original NASA photo (top left). So what do you think? Can it be the remnants of something 'alien,' or a naturally formed and photographically enhanced structure that just looks like somethin'?


Top Secret

Russia the scapegoat: Baltic Sea UFO blamed on Russia

Footage of strange lights hovering above the Baltic Sea off Russia's western coast has sent alarm bells ringing across Western media.

Britain's Mirror tabloid, which placed the video on its website, wondered whether the craft could be the latest top secret Russian military hardware being tested... or it could just be a few weather balloons out for a casual fly.

Comment: Notice that 'Western media' limit the possibilities to Russian military hardware and weather balloons. Give us a break! 70 years of good UFO research and they can't even bring themselves to bring up the possibility that such a phenomenon might represent something truly unknown, i.e., not human-made or 'natural'.

The 'cluster' of UFOs were filmed at sunset which, according the video's creator, is the best time to catch UFOs, the Mirror wrote.

Comment: Just another example of the standard Western protocol of deflection and diversion: use Russia as the excuse for everything the U.S. doesn't want you to know about. Western-sponsored terrorism? Russia! Western-sponsored coup in Ukraine? Russia! Refugee crisis in Europe? Russia! UFOs? Russia!


Leaked: US government video of UFO flying over Puerto Rico airport in 2013

This is a fantastic capture of a UFO. I often say that infrared cameras will reveal cloaked UFOs and here we are with a confirmed UFO by US government aircraft, and a massive report to boot. The UFO is seen for almost 3 minutes, and followed closely, cloaking off and on along the way. At 2:57 the UFO is recorded diving into the water and not returning. From the screenshots I can tell you, this object 100% alien tech. The UFO is rotating slowly, about one time per 5 seconds, which gives us a nice view from different angles. It is an unmanned drone. It looks to be about the size of a motorcycle, and the report confirms this by stating, "it was about 3 to 5 feet in length and its speed varied between 40 to 120 mph."
