Debunkery: The Reality of Recent UFO Sightings

America has seen a spate of alleged UFO sightings in recent weeks and months. Eyewitnesses in Arizona, Illinois, Arkansas, North Carolina, and other states have reported seeing mysterious lights and objects in the sky.

Among the sightings:
  • In November 2006, United Airlines employees reported seeing a large, dark, "saucer-shaped" craft over a terminal at Chicago's O'Hare airport. It hovered for a while, then suddenly rose and shot up into the sky.
  • In January 2007, multiple eyewitnesses reported seeing a formation of mysterious bright lights in the sky over western Arkansas, moving too slowly to be aircraft.
  • Similar lights were reported this week over Phoenix.


Strange Sightings In North Carolina Skies

Are the makings of a Sci-Fi movie happening in the Piedmont-Triad?

There have been strange reports about flying objects in the skies -- and some people think they're UFOs.

WXII 12's Nicole Ducouer spoke to a Kernersville man who said he captured an object on his cell phone.

Jamarus Crews said he was sitting in his Farmwood Garden Apartment when he saw something in the sky. It had lots of lights and made no noise, he said.

Wilkes County's Charles Miller said he also caught an image of an object.

Comment: Sure, people are seeing all kinds of strange lights in the sky recently all over the world, but don't worry - they aren't UFOs, they're just a whole lot of bolides that are supposed to be rarely seen...

Armed Forces reveal UFO presence in Chile

More than 1,000 enthusiasts and experts gathered in Viña del Mar on Tuesday and Wednesday this week for the Tenth International Ufology Conference, organized by the Chile's Ufology Investigation Group (Aion). The highlight of the meeting was a display of photographs taken by members of Chile's Armed Forces.

Ufology is the study of unidentified flying objects, or UFOs. While many ufology experts feel that the field is not taken seriously by scientists, participants at the conference in Viña del Mar said the presence of several members of the armed forces added legitimacy to the proceedings. Rodrigo Fuenzalida, director of Aion, said the military presence was important because of the well-known objectivity of their reports and the advanced technology that can be used to back up their observations.


Mysterious Lights Spotted Over Phoenix, Again

Phoenix, Arizona - Nearly a decade after the highly publicized 'Phoenix Light Phenomenon', more strange lights have appeared in the night sky over downtown Phoenix.

A still shot from video of the lights in formation over Phoenix, Arizona.

Tuesday night, mysterious lights lit up the western skies over Phoenix and soon after, phones began ringing off the hook at radio, television and police stations from witnesses wondering what the lights were.

The Yuma Marine Base claims it has the answer. Base officials said the amber-colored flares came from training flights on the Goldwater Gunnery Range. They went on to explain that the amber flares are used as targets.

Comment: Yep, I can imagine finding it hard to believe you're watching 'flares' when you see the thing move along in the sky for a long distance, in perfect formation. Well, at least they didn't call it 'swamp gas' or 'cloud formations' this time.


Dozens of UFOs sighted over Islington - Stopped Traffic

Dozens of mysterious lights were spotted hovering in the sky above Archway - spreading panic among residents below.

Unidentified flying orange objects stopped traffic and left residents staring skyward in disbelief at around 5.30pm on Thursday.

Islington police received four calls within a matter of minutes.

Witness Alix McAlister, 34, a market stall trader from Bredgar Road, Archway, said: "I just picked up my son from nursery in Bredgar Road. I had just come out of the door when I noticed what was going on in the sky.

"There were a group of them - 10 to 15 of them moving together. My first impression was that they reminded me of a squadron of aeroplanes in formation. But they didn't have a proper formation and they were all moving at the same speed.

Pilot Photographs Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon

Weather Balloon? Hoax? "UFO"?

I am a freight pilot and my route takes me from Reno to Elko, NV. On the 29th of December at approximately 1400 hrs. local, I was leaving the FBO and walking to my plane. The day was severe clear and crisp. There were a few contrails crossing and nothing else. I saw Pablo, one of the linemen, looking up at the sky. I asked what he was looking at and he directed my eyes to an object so high up it seemed to be against the blue of the sky. The object looked like the ball at the end of a pushpin held at arm's length. It was the color of quicksilver and looked perfectly spherical. It was moving from south to north and we saw it pass behind a number of contrails; some of which had to be in the FL400 range. One more lineman came out to see the object and we observed it move north for about 15 minutes all told.

Cloud Formations Draw Interest

On Monday, people from Mississippi to Texas reported seeing what they thought was a meteor flying through the sky.

Meteorologists with the National Weather Service in Jackson said the occurrence can be explained and it wasn't a meteor.

Instead they say airplane exhaust mixed with the precipitation to cause a hole in the clouds.

Capt. Jim Thornton of the Mississippi National Guard said he heard a loud sound, then looked up and saw the line through the sky.

"The only sound I heard was like a crack in the sky, and it continued north, just a matter of seconds. Most unbelievable thing I've ever seen in my life," said Thornton.


Another one: UFO's seen over South Shore sky

It's hard to draw a surfer's attention away from the next wave, but whatever was in the southwest sky Friday evening around 6:20 p.m. drew a crowd along Kewalo Basin and Ala Moana Beach Park.

Honolulu resident Peter Hollingworth described what he and many others saw as two lights circling in the sky, about 45 degrees above the horizon.

Video of one of the lights was recorded from the KHON 2 SkyCam.

"These two little fireballs with a stream behind it," said Hollingworth. "Looked kind of like a shooting star but it just kept going. They changed directions a few times, at first it was coming in then it turned, then it went out then it came back in again."


Human Mutes and UFOs

Cattle mutilations: we've all heard about them; and everyone has an opinion. For some, aliens are visiting the Earth and excising tissue, blood, and organs from the animals for God-knows-what nefarious purpose. Others see the UFO angle of the cattle mutes as a brilliantly executed cover-story to hide a darker truth: namely that "the Government" is concerned by emerging-diseases in the animal kingdom that may spread to the human race, and is carefully keeping watch on the situation by slicing and dicing a few animals now and again for experimental purposes. Then there are those that roll their eyes and conclude that it's all a bunch of hysteria-driven nonsense caused by nothing stranger than predators, the ever-churning rumor-mill, and cultural mythology.
