A resident of Limassol has been left stunned after spotting what appeared to be a UFO in the sky above the city.

The resident, who is unnamed, left a statement along with amateur footage on Youtube claiming that: "I saw this strange light hovering on the sky which also changed colours to green. At first I thought it was a plane but as it got closer this thing was quite big and was hovering on the sky for about an hour and 5 minutes."

The photographer zoomed in on the object - but was still unable to identify what it could be.

The crystal clear video, which was filmed at the end of September, shows what appears to be a UFO floating above the city.

The object, which looks like a bright white ball of light slowly moves around, with the photographer capturing its every move.

Mysterious: The ghostly hand can be seen to the left of Peaches' head.
Peaches Geldof claims a mysterious hand which appeared in a selfie she took belongs to a ghost.

She snapped the picture of herself with daughter Astala in the bathroom of her Kent home.

But when she looked at the photo she noticed the ghostly hand by the side of her head and posted it on Instagram saying: "Close up shot of the mystery ghost hand in pic I took of Astala and me In the bath!!

"And no that isn't my hand- one of mine was round his waist to hold him during the photo, the other holding the camera to take the shot."

The hazards of psychic backlash

While it is certainly true that undertaking research into the collective world of the unknown can be illuminating, stimulating and exciting, it can also be downright hazardous. Sometimes, when a person becomes immersed in an investigation to a very deep and significant degree, the phenomenon under the microscope appears to realize that it is being watched and responds in violent, and sometimes even deadly, fashion. Welcome (if that's the right word to use) to the world of what is known as psychic backlash.
A classic example comes from a good friend of mine, Jon Downes, the director of the UK-based Center for Fortean Zoology. For years, Jon deeply investigated the mystery of the Owlman of Cornwall, England - surely the closest thing the nation has to the infamous Mothman of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, USA. But there was something deeply sinister about the winged, glowing-eyed Owlman. Every time Jon dug deep into the heart of the enigma, things would go wrong - as in big time.

And here's Jon to explain more. On the subject of psychic backlash, he says: "This is a series of inexplicable and horrific outbreaks of bad luck that can overtake the hapless seeker after monstrous truth on his way to his goal."

UFOs and phone interference

There can surely be very few stranger experiences for the researcher of Fortean and paranormal phenomena than when those same phenomena decide to turn the tables and focus their attentions upon the aforementioned researcher. And there is, perhaps, no better example of this than in relation to the mystery of the Men in Black - whose shadowy and creepy activities seem to have consistently targeted UFO witnesses and investigators alike. Including, just maybe, me.

On last Saturday night's Coast to Coast show I was interviewed on that very subject: the Men in Black mystery. It was a 3-hour-long episode (1AM to 4AM) in which I discussed with the host of the show, John B. Wells, the many and varied complexities of the legend of the Men in Black.

During the course of the show, we covered a great deal of ground, such as: (A) the saga of Albert Bender (arguably, the one man more than any other who kick-started the MIB mystery), (B) Gray Barker's significant part in the controversy (largely thanks to his classic 1956 book, They Knew Too Much About Flying Saucers), (C) the MIB-Mothman connection detailed by John Keel in The Mothman Prophecies and by the aforementioned Barker in The Silver Bridge (the latter being a book I particularly recommend), (D) the many and varied theories for who - or what - the Men in Black might be, (E) modern day encounters with the MIB, and much more.

But, there was something else too...

The Thin Man - Stick insects in Russia (Slenderman in Russia)

Not much is known about this video titled 'The Thin Man - Stick Insects in Russia (Slenderman in Russia)', except that it shows what appears to be a giant stick creature climbing on the sides of an apartment building in Russia.

Some say it is merely Adobe Aftereffects but what do you think?

Large 'glowing, pulsating' fish-like creature filmed in Bristol harbour

Experts were baffled after video footage emerged of a glowing "alien-like creature" swimming in Bristol harbour.

Stunned eyewitnesses filmed a mystery luminescent, tentacled being, which was flashing a variety of colours, floating close to the top of the water

Videos of the strange marine object in the city's historic docks were posted on Youtube and Twitter with many claiming to have seen an alien.

Marine biologists admit they are baffled, but claim the footage could be a marine salp which had drifted off course by the weather.

Dr Steve Simpson, from the School of Biological Sciences at Bristol University, said: "It's very intriguing, I don't really know what to make of it.

What the...?!

The invisible hand of the Cosmic Trickster: High strangeness and the paranormal nature of the UFO phenomenon

We seem to be surrounded by an almost invisible world that can manipulate us in any way. ~ John Keel

On Sunday, October 30th, 1938, millions of radio listeners in the USA were shocked to the core by a radio announcement about a Martian attack on Earth. They panicked, some ran out of their homes screaming, others packed up their cars and fled. Even though the ground-shaking news turned out to be nothing more than a portion of Orson Welles' adaptation of the well-known book, War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells, many of the listeners believed what they heard on the radio was real.

In his infamous broadcast, Orson Welles set the scene by saying: "We know now that in the early years of the twentieth century this world was being watched closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own..."

While Welles' radio stunt was fiction, a careful analysis of the evidence suggests the actual reality surrounding UFOs and all things associated is much stranger than any fiction ever invented by a human mind.

Strange lights and fireballs seen over Tucson Thanksgiving night

Tucson - Lights in the sky on Thanksgiving night spark stories of possible UFO's or comets flying over the desert.

People living in the area of Houghton and Golf Links report seeing "fireball-like" lights shooting through the southwestern sky Thursday night. Some thought the lights could be the comet Ison, which is heading toward the sun.

News 4 viewer Jeffrey Compton sent in video he shot near his home showing the fireballs glowing in the night sky.

So far, no official explanation for the glowing lights.

Alien abductee documents "unseen forces" disturbing his home in weird video

A strange new video posted by a prominent UFO abductee begs the question, "are extraterrestrials masquerading as ghosts or do abductees just attract weirdness of all forms?

The video, posted on November 17th, appears to show an "unseen force" moving a picture frame on command. That might seem pretty bizarre, but the man behind the clip, Stan Romanek, knows a thing or two about strange videos. Several years ago, Romanek, a man who wrote a book about being taken aboard alien crafts, released a bit of footage that he says showed an extraterrestrial peering into his window.
