The mysterious crop circle.
Hundreds of alien enthusiasts have flocked to see a mysterious crop circle at an iconic landmark.

The circle, which shows a central star with outward chevrons, appeared on farmland near the Long Man of Wilmington, not far from the South Downs escarpment.

It was first spotted almost two weeks ago with scores of visitors heading to Wilmington to catch a glimpse of it.

Matthew Williams, who took an aerial photograph, said: "It's a really good- quality circle.

"It appeared overnight so nobody's sure who did it. Some people are saying it could have been done by aliens but I think it looks more human."

A crop circle is a pattern created by flattening crops such as wheat and barley.

Dementors from Harry Potter? Enormous 'phantom-like' UFO falls out of the sky in Godalming, England

Fears the life-sucking phantoms have materialised after haunting UFO appears in countryside.


Villagers were left gobsmacked by the sight of this 'Dementor-like' UFO floating in the Surrey countryside.

Several called police after spotting the strange sight which one person described as "like something out of a horror film".

Others said it looked like a Dementor from the Harry Potter books, GetSurrey reports.

In the popular series, Dementors are described as a phantom beings which can suck the life from humans.

Police said the reports varied from the possibility of a hot air balloon crashing to a large piece of sheeting flying through the air.

Comment: Bizarro! Evidence of very strange "weather" going on. Reminds us of all those historical cases of weird stuff falling from the sky - not that the stuff itself was weird, but rather that it was falling from the sky, which means the weather is the weird thing.

Hay was also reported to be falling from the sky across England and Wales last month...

And the landlord said that this spooky footage is the proof he needed that his pub in Llanelli, west Wales, is visited by supernatural spirits.

David Langley-Evans, 49, said he couldn't believe it when he first saw the wispy shape appear in his hallway - and now he wants experts on the supernatural to identify what it was.

UFO Case Report

Date: July 18, 1969
Location:

Buzz Aldrin: "There was something out there that, uh, was close enough to be observed and what could it be? Mike (Collins) decided he thought he could see it in the telescope and he was able to do that and when it was in one position, that had a series of ellipses, but when you made it real sharp it was sort of L shaped. That didn't tell us very much."

Mysterious "hum" in Plymouth, UK

Since The Herald reported on rising claims of Plymothians hearing a 'mystery hum', the paper has been inundated with calls, letters and emails from people who thought they were alone in their hum troubles.

From farm machinery to power works to submarines, Plymouth residents are struggling to cope with 'the hum' - whatever it may be - and want to source its origins.

Reports claim that around 2 per cent of the UK's population can hear the hum, which supposedly sounds like a low throbbing drone, and can only ever be heard indoors. Mr Baul, 72, and his wife, 56, who live in Milehouse, can hear the mysterious humming noise day and night and it is affecting their relationship.

"We're arguing about the noise," said Mr Baul. "At first my wife couldn't hear it, but now she can; I just want to know where it's coming from."

Alien artifact or doomsday device? The Betz mystery sphere story

This bizarre, allegedly self propelled, seamless metallic orb was discovered by members of the Betz family in 1974, and rapidly became the object of fascination, controversy and alarm for scientists, military officials, ufologists and the general public as the story of this mystery sphere spread like wildfire through the international media.


On May 26, 1974, Terry Mathew Betz, a 21 year-old pre-med student, along his mother Gerri and his marine engineer father, Antoine, were inspecting the damage caused by a brush fire that had raged across an 88-acre swathe of woodland that they had recently acquired on marshy Fort George Island, which is nestled just east of Jacksonville, Florida.

At first the trio found nothing out of the ordinary, but before their expedition was over they stumbled across a peculiar highly polished, metal orb that was just under 8-inches in diameter. The only delineating mark that the three could find on the eerily unblemished object was an elongated triangular shape stamped into its surface.

Stunned, Terry and his parents wondered whether or not they might have stumbled across some kind of downed NASA or maybe even Soviet satellite. Perhaps they even speculated that the friction induced heat of this object plummeting from its orbit might have had something to do with the fire that had ravaged the property, but none of them could find any signs of an impact crater or any indication of collision or heat damage on the gleaming metal globe.

The trio then surmised that it might be an "old fashioned canon ball, which someone had silver plated," as a souvenir. Intrigued by this extraordinary find, Terry decided to heft the 22 lbs., bowling ball sized sphere into their car and take it back to their castle-like home, where he showed the unusual object to a 12 year-old relative named Wayne. He was just as perplexed by the mystery object as the rest of the family had been.

The young medical student then placed his strange prize on a window seat in his bedroom, and there the anomalous object remained, virtually forgotten, until approximately two weeks later when Terry decided to entertain his friend, Theresa Fraser, with an impromptu guitar recital in his room, eliciting some decidedly unusual reactions from this enigmatic orb.

Every American killed by lightning so far in 2014 has been male

A fisherman knee-deep in a lake, a man lying against a tree, a roofer working atop a car dealership - these are just some of those who were killed by lightning in 2014, a year that so far has seen a 100 percent-male ratio for fatal U.S. strikes.

Seven American men have died from lightning since January. Add to that grim tally the nine consecutive male fatalities last fall, and you have the longest lightning-on-dude killing streak since at least 2006. It's a statistical fluke strong enough to get the #YesAllMen crowd crying misandry at Mother Nature.

But this all-XY zapfest is a testament to the sad fact that when it comes to men and fusillades of sky electricity, some things never change. Men are disproportionately represented in the history of lightning deaths. Since 2006, they've comprised 81 percent of such tragedies, as the National Weather Service shows in this graphic for the ongoing Lightning Safety Awareness Week:
