Houston Toronto, we have a problem.

The city's skies lit up Thursday evening with what appeared to be a fireball-shaped object hovering in the night sky.

The mysterious, large ball appeared before midnight, prompting reports of UFO sightings in Pickering and Scarborough.

The strange glowing orb flickering in the eastern sky caused quite a stir on social media, with numerous Twitter users sharing photos and videos of the unidentified object, which one user said just hovered in the sky instead of moving or disappearing.

TR-3B spycraft El Paso
Despite the aircraft believed to be fulfilling surveillance missions outside the US, this time it has apparently been spotted while spying inside the country, according to claims by exceptionally inquisitive internet users.

Weird footage has emerged featuring the moment a man inadvertently caught on camera something he could not effectively explain. As he stopped his car at a red light glancing right into the blazing sunrise while on his way to work, he caught sight of something unusual in the skies above El Paso, Texas, and quickly reached for his phone to film it.

Photos show unexplained cattle mutilation in Australia - Dead cows found in paddock with udders, ears and tongues removed

cattle mutilation
A north Queensland couple has been left baffled by a bizarre finding on their property, which seems like something straight from a horror film.

Graziers Mick and Judy Cook were working on their property in Cloverly, north-west of Mackay, when Mr Cook noticed a dead cow carcass which appeared to have had its body mutilated, with its entire udder, ears and tongue removed.

Warning: This story contains images and content that some readers may find disturbing.

"It was like it had been surgically removed, I certainly couldn't do as neat a job with a very sharp knife, and it definitely wasn't an animal," Mr Cook said.

"I thought at first it might have been poisoned, but then I got closer ... I saw the body parts missing, there was no blood, even where the parts had been removed, no sign of struggle, just dead.

A strange object spotted in the sky over North Carolina has ignited speculation of a UFO sighting or a top secret US military experiment accidentally exposed, but is it nothing more than a prank?

Javion Hill spotted the object in the sky, southwest of Charlotte, when he was driving home on the US-74 on August 18. He was on the phone to his wife at the time, and was photographing storm clouds overhead to send to her when he noticed a rectangular shape in the sky, with lights on its sides.

"I was, like: 'Oh my god, what is that?' I started trying to take as many pictures of it as possible while I was driving," he told the Charlotte Observer.

The sudden appearance of a massive 'ghost' ship off the coast of southern Myanmar has shocked local fishermen who were stunned to find the freighter carried no cargo nor traces of crew.

After nearly a decade lost at sea the Sam Ratulangi PB 1600, finally ran aground on a sandbar approximately seven miles (11km) off the coast of Thama Seitta village of this week.

The fishermen boarded and inspected the ship after reporting it to local authorities. Teams from the navy, coast guard and police all subsequently searched the abandoned freighter which reportedly measures an impressive 177.35 meters in length, 27.91 meters in width and weighs 26,510 tons.

Lynn Locke's report has now been accepted by the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register - the seventh of the monster this year, which is heading for a record

A school secretary has captured Nessie on her mobile phone - just hours before a schoolgirl photographed a similar image 12 miles away.

Lynn Locke's report has now been accepted by the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register - the seventh of the monster this year, which is heading for a record.

The 54-year-old elementary school secretary from Ontario in Canada was on holiday with her husband and daughter - visiting family in Glasgow - when they took a trip to the Highlands for a few days.

While at Loch Ness, Mrs Locke saw Nessie for about a minute about 50 yards offshore near Urquhart Castle, said to be a favourite haunt of the monster.

Fata Morgana: Kingdom of heaven appears over China. video below
In recent years, strange appearances have been reported in the skies around the world. Yes, sometimes, 'ghost towns' appear in the sky. Witnesses remain baffled even for years... Some are even terrified by these spectacular sightings. But what are these strange shadows in the sky?

According to the scientists, these ghost cities that appear floating among the dense fog are mirages, or a naturally occurring optical phenomenon in which light rays bend to produce a displaced image of distant objects or the sky.

In contrast to a hallucination, a mirage is a real optical phenomenon that can be captured on camera, since light rays are actually refracted to form the false image at the observer's location. What the image appears to represent, however, is determined by the interpretive faculties of the human mind.

Unidentified humanoid creature seen near Mount Vernon, Virginia

A strange, unidentified humanoid creature has been spotted near Mount Vernon just outside of the nation's capital. Has one of Washington D.C.'s reptilian swamp creatures crawled out of her office for a bit of sightseeing during the Congressional summer recess? The sighting reportedly occurred a "couple miles" north of Mount Vernon. Despite its name, Mount Vernon is not a mountain; it is the former plantation home of George Washington situated on the Potomac River. Today Mount Vernon is an independently owned historical attraction.

The remains of George and Martha Washington are interred at the site - as do the remains of their slaves.

On July 31, a motorist driving near Mount Vernon spotted what appeared to be a deer by the side of the road - until it stood up and ran across the road. MUFON Ohio investigator Ron McGlone received a report of the sighting this week, which has been published by the Mount Vernon News. The witness is described as credible and requested to remain anonymous. Whoever they are, the eyewitness says the creature ran out of a cornfield and across the highway "at a tremendous rate of speed," crossing the highway in only a few steps.

According to the witness, the creature appeared to stand 7 to 8 feet all, hairless with light brown skin, and possessing a "tall slender body, arms and legs in small diameter, hands and feet looked oversized for its body proportion, small neck with oval elongated head." The witness also said the humanoid figure had large, black oval-shaped eyes similar to everyone's favorite grey aliens.

Nick Redfern: From an Ouija Board to Sasquatch

Laura Carter was thirty-six, lived in New York, and was employed by the Post Office when I interviewed her in 2007. She related to me the details of a distinctly odd and unsettling series of occurrences that took place back in mid-1985. On one particularly warm summer's night, Laura said, three of her friends had come over to visit. Her parents were out of town, and so the girls planned to have an evening hanging out, playing music, drinking, and and generally having a fun time.

At some point during the night, the discussion turned to horror-movies, ghosts, spooks and specters, and the four girls decided to experiment with an old Ouija Board. As Laura admitted to me, none of them were seriously frightened by the board or the possible implications of what might transpire - in fact, they had no real idea at all how to even use the board, apart from "what we had seen in horror movies," added Laura. But, like teenagers everywhere, they found the idea of "playing with the Ouija Board while my mom and dad were out" to be great fun and immensely exciting. However, what initially started out as nothing more than a bit of late-night joking around quickly changed into something far darker and much more disturbing.

Search and rescue crews are now on their third day of intense efforts to find missing hiker Sam Sayers, who disappeared while hiking Vesper Peak.
Search and rescue crews are now on their third day of intense efforts to find missing hiker Sam Sayers deep in the mountain loop highway area of Vesper Peak.

"We have about 70 search and rescue members down on the Spada side, including canine, and we also have our helicopter and air operations," said Sargent Greg Sanders of the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office.

Sayer's friends reported her missing after she didn't return from her hike this past Wednesday. Although she was alone, she's hiked this area before. And even though its summer, conditions up top are very different. "It's alpine, at about 5,400 feet we actually still have snow up there."
