High Strangeness


Ancient UFOs depicted in artwork

Sightings of strange objects in the sky have been recorded for a very long time. For example, in 217 BC "at Arpi round shields (parmas) were seen in the sky" (Liv. 22.1.9; Orosius 4.15). A parma was a small round shield made of iron, bronze, and other metals. According to NASA, "we do not know whether the luster of these devices (and not just their shape) was intended to be an element of the description. Mock suns are an unlikely explanation, since in the Roman prodigy lists these were routinely described as 'double suns' or 'triple suns' (i.e. two mock suns on either side of the real one)."

Another example would be the picture above, known as the "Golden orb" phenomenon seen at Spoletium, Umbria, Italy in 91 BC (from Jaques Vallee, Chris Aubeck: Wonders in the Sky.)

The one below is from August 7, 1566. At dawn, many citizens of Basel (Switzerland) reported seeing many spheres for several hours.


SOTT Exclusive: UFO caught on camera during Falcon9 Space X rocket explosion (VIDEO)

Screengrab of the object passing the rocket for the second time, just as it exploded.
Earlier this week Elon Musk's Falcon 9 Space X rocket burst into flames during fueling and moments before a test launch, resulting in massive financial and technological loss for the company.

The explosion was chalked up to a faulty rocket engine that created a spark, causing the entire system to viciously explode, even damaging the launchpad.

While the company and US agencies are investigating the exact cause of the explosion, video footage appears to show an anomalous object - literally, an Unidentified Flying Object - passing nearby.

There are actually two occasions in the following video of a mystery object zipping by, apparently flying at hypersonic speed. Whatever it is, it appears to be passing by in the distance, i.e. beyond the rocket launch site, and is thus unlikely to be an insect or a bird flying past the camera's immediate foreground:

SpaceX's next launch was supposed to be on Saturday, September 3, with this rocket carrying the Israeli communications satellite Amos-6 into geostationary orbit, ostensibly to provide Facebook broadband to Africa.


Electric-blue 'humanoid' creature caught on camera in Peru (VIDEO)

Anthony Choy claims he chased a strange blue humanoid across a motorway in Peru
A paranormal investigator claims he has captured footage of an alien 'humanoid' with a large, glowing blue head levitating across a motorway.

Anthony Choy, who has been investigating UFO sightings for 25 years, says he and his crew chased the being after it appeared outside a petrol station in Pachacamac, Peru on August 22.

According to Choy and his witnesses, the creature was about half a metre tall, with red eyes and a head the size up a pumpkin. It emitted blue glowing lights from it's dome-like skull.

When it ran into the motorway, Choy claimed the being was hit by a speeding truck, but disappeared at the point of contact and rematerialised in the road after it had passed.

Choy says he believes that moment proves the alien must be capable of teleportation in order to avoid certain death.

Comment: More likely - assuming there is something paranormal to this - that both the 'creature' and the truck briefly shared the same space-time coordinates, thus 'passing through' one another.

Blurry footage taken by the investigators does indeed appear to show a strange blue form walking towards the motorway, before vanishing just as a lorry hits it.

Swastika crop circle appears in British field

A 180ft-wide crop circle cut in a Nazi swastika-like design has mysteriously appeared in a field in Wiltshire, southwest England, sparking conspiracy theorists (unsurprisingly) to speculate about alien involvement.

Since the 1960s, the phenomena have been cited by some conspiracists as evidence of the existence of extraterrestrials, but sightings of the irregular crop patterns date back to as early as the 1600s.

The farmer who tends to the field in Beckhampton, near Avery, said he was shocked to discover the formation which had appeared overnight, saying he had not made it and had not given anyone else permission to.

Local megalithic researcher Hugh Newman said he rushed to the site to capture footage of the crop circle after seeing a Facebook post about it.

"[The farmer] didn't say much to me but he was a bit concerned by the symbol and he saw the negative connotation of it when he realised what it looked like," Newman told the Daily Mail.


Do 'UFOs' hovering near International Space Station show that aliens are monitoring our satellites?

UFO enthusiasts have studied the footage and come to some staggering conclusions which would blow holes in decades of research that found no signs of intelligent life in outer space

Does this footage showing a UFO hovering near the International Space Station prove once and for all that aliens are monitoring the satellite?

UFO enthusiasts have studied the footage and come to some staggering conclusions which would blow holes in decades of research that found no signs of intelligent life in outer space.

The Daily Star reports the footage is believed to have been taken from a live NASA stream and has now been pored over by people on YouTube after being uploaded by user Streetcap1.


Meet the girl who remembers 10 previous lives

From the time Joey Verwey was just three years old, she was telling her family amazing stories that she was able to remember from her previous ten incarnations.

Stories that were so unusual and detailed, there was no way that she could have learned them on her own.

Her first life was a cave dweller about 200 million years ago. She remembers being chased by a dinosaur, and leaving stone and bone tools behind in a cave.

Today, she was able to lead investigators to a series of caves in South Africa that she had never seen before.

Several UFOs seen flying over Yellowstone super-volcano

Chilling footage reveals several large UFOs flying over the gigantic Yellowstone super-volcano which alien hunters now suggest may be an alien base.

Sweeping through the clouds above Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming appears what looks to be a massive flying cylinder more than 300 feet long (100 meters) above a gigantic super-volcano that has been dormant for over 70,000 years. UFO hunters claim that NASA has been interrupting its live feed whenever a UFO is near the International Space Station.

While scientists have long speculated that an eruption of the massive volcano could kill some 100,000 people and ignite a nuclear winter, UFO hunters now believe that the explosive mound of molten lava serves as a feeding source for alien life forms drawing on the volcanic energy.


Aokigahara: Japan's suicide forest

At the northwest base of infamous Mount Fuji in Japan lies Aokigahara, a 14 square mile forest of immense natural beauty. It's also the most common location for suicides in Japan, which as a nation has the third highest suicide rate in the world.

To many, suicide is completely unthinkable, yet according to the World Health Organization, over 800,000 people end their own lives in this way per year. The severity of this global issue is most present in 15-29 year olds, as a 2012 study revealed it to be the second leading cause of death in that age group.

Aokigahara, also known as the Suicide Forest or Sea of Trees, has been the final destination for what is believed to be over a hundred individuals annually, despite efforts by both the Japanese government and volunteers to end this grisly tradition.

The truth of the matter

The Case of Steven Greer

Steven Greer
Perhaps you've heard of the Disclosure Project. Headed by Dr. Steven Greer, it was/is an interesting attempt at requesting that the U.S. Government make available all the information it has on UFOs and 'extraterrestrial' visitations. The Disclosure Project made compelling use of credible eyewitnesses - individuals in the fields of military, intelligence, industry, etc. - who gave testimony of UFO sightings and interactions strongly suggesting that elements of the government must know what's going on - but are also deliberately suppressing knowledge of the alien reality to the public.

As stated, the Disclosure Project aspires to some very lofty and noble goals. One of these is to make alien technology, which is believed to be in the possession of the US military, available to the public. It is thought that there exist elements of the U.S. government and military industrial complex that have reverse-engineered alien spacecraft they are in possession of and are secretly using them for militaristic and nefarious purposes only (which is probably true enough). And should the 'zero point' energy technology they surely possess be shared with the world, there would no longer be any need for the shady dealings involved with the business of fossil fuels. (As an aside, it is probably no coincidence that the subject of alien technology getting into public hands was one of the sub-plots of the new X-Files story, suggesting how the show seems so informed by the main tenets of the Disclosure Project - both of which began in 1993.)

Other goals held by the organization are: "To enact legislation which will ban all space-based weapons" and to "enact comprehensive legislation to research, develop and explore space peacefully and cooperatively with all cultures on Earth and in space". These are all things that most peace-loving and normal people would have a hard time objecting to. However, underneath these paradigm-changing aspirations is Greer's position that this same secret government clique has an adversarial relationship with the aliens, and that if only these war-like human groups could understand that E.T. is our friend, just waiting for us to evolve, humanity would be welcomed into the galactic family with open arms.


Cigar-shaped UFO spotted in Manchester, England (2011) (VIDEO)

In the clip, a small, pipe-shaped object can be seen floating around the clear blue sky in Denton, Manchester.

Perhaps this isn't that surprising - Manchester was named the UFO capital of Britain earlier this year.

Adorned with lights that flash from white, to blue, to purple, the mysterious object is long and narrow, rather than the disc-shape commonly associated with UFOs.

The strange sight was caught on camera as the object flew "higher than planes," according to the owner of the footage.

Posting the clip on social media, he wrote: "Knowing how high it appeared in the sky, I'm guessing its size was massive."

He added the possible UFO was visible in the sky for around 40 minutes before it flew so high it could no longer be seen.

The video, which has resurfaced online after being first posted in 2011, has garnered significant attention from believers in aliens and the supernatural.
