A man filmed the appearance of strange black coils in the waters of in Russia's Chelyabinsk region. The creature that apparently appears on the video was dubbed the "Miasnessi Monster," U24.ru website said.

Mikhail Nenarokov, a resident of the Miass district of the Chelyabinsk region, was kayaking on the lake, when he suddenly saw a few coils of unknown origin appearing from under the water. It appeared that there was a giant snake underneath the water surface, the man said.

"To be honest, I did not have the courage to move closer than 20 meters," the man said. He admitted that it could be the divers as it seemed to be the most adequate explanation to the phenomenon.

However, according to the eyewitness, he was observing the movement of a giant snake for 20 minutes. "I have filmed three videos from three angles. Honestly, it was a scary sight," the man said.

The monster was dubbed "Miasnessi", similar to Nessie - the legend of Loch Ness.

The Truth Perspective: X-Files, Mothman and the inimitable John Keel

© Fox
In 1975, John Keel published his strange and classic Mothman Prophecies about the even stranger events he experienced and investigated in 1966-67 in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. The book, and the articles he wrote nearly 10 years before, were decades ahead of their time, identifying and taking seriously countless topics that most people ignored or wrote off as fantasy, but which are now being taken seriously by many in the field of ufology. Today, we took a broad look at the book and the phenomena Keel described.

We also discussed the latest iteration of the X-Files TV show (see SOTT editor Ennio Adams' series on the show starting here): what it gets right, and what it gets wrong, and why it matters. In the last half hour we gave brief updates on the situations in Syria and Ukraine, as well as the U.S. presidential election. Tune in!

Korean air force jets reportedly engaged a UFO in 1980, documentary reveals

Two Korean Air Force combat jets evidently engaged an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) in 1980, according to a documentary program aired on JTBC on Sunday.

The incident was reported to top commanding officers of the Korean Air Force at the time, but they decided not to investigate the matter as it was not within their area of expertise.

According to the documentary, Lim Byeong-seon, a reserve Major General and a former Korean Air Force pilot, was flying a combat aircraft for a Korea-U.S. combined military exercise named Team Spirit on March 31, 1980. Korea at the time was in distress after a military coup had taken place on Dec. 12, 1979. Lim was flying at night with three other pilots to Gangneung, Gangwon, where the combined exercise was taking place, when they detected a floating object that was not picked up by their radars.

Woman shares story of her schoolyard encounter with UFOs and aliens

At first as a child and now again, Emily Trim shares her incredible story of one of the most well known ET and human encounters ever released.

The UFO phenomenon is taken very seriously these days. It's no longer a fringe topic, and the existence of UFOs has been confirmed by dozens of governments, thousands of previously classified UFO files, and testimony from several hundreds of high ranking military personnel — and that's not even accounting for the testimony that's been offered from multiple academics and politicians.

You can see some of those statements at the bottom of this article about Carl Sagan, or find more links to evidence, documents, and more by visiting the exopolitics section of our website.

Pittsburgh residents report sightings of mysterious, shiny object in sky

A mysterious object spotted in the skies over parts of the Pittsburgh area caused quite a stir Thursday evening.

KDKA received some calls into our newsroom about it, starting around 8 p.m.

People reported seeing a shiny, silver object in the sky. The reports were coming from areas west of downtown.

"Around 8 p.m., we were looking up into the northern sky and saw what looked like just to be a bright, silver object in the sky, and then after we got a telescope on it, it looked like it was a clear balloon that was catching the light as it moved from west to east," said Russ Moll, of McKees Rocks.

Moll says it was it a very odd sight in the evening sky.

"It stood out because it was before dusk and so the stars weren't out yet, so it just really caught our eye," Moll said. "You noticed it as being something out of the ordinary."

The video points out every spot throughout the night where it can be seen.

But where can it be found?
See Part I of this article for an introduction to what's being discussed here: SOTT Exclusive: New X-Files blows it on the truth and reality of alien abduction - and why it matters - Part I

Before going any further, let's watch this rather funny but insightful short animated video from Mashable summarizing the X-Files series:


Did you catch the major insight the video had about the series? Put simply, it is that the themes of the X-Files and the subject matter being discussed here, when considered and researched seriously, can be quite simply terrifying. How much easier would it be to never have to consider that one could be abducted, controlled and possibly killed by highly intelligent and powerful - but effectively evil - beings from other worlds?! On the face of it, the idea sounds absurd. But even if one has to suspend their disbelief to really consider it, I mean, really, who wants to think about such things - especially when one is having fun with their life or, conversely, if one has serious day-to-day problems that are difficult enough to deal with already? And who doesn't have a few of those in this insane day and age?

But what if, in the midst of just living your life (whether ridden with problems or relatively problem-free) you begin to have some strange (and I mean really strange) experiences that include having no idea where you were for the past several hours; finding yourself waking up in unaccounted for place and in an unaccounted for condition?

She has a white sheet draped over her and is lying perfectly still.

A spirit-like figure seems to rise from her body.
