UK: Haslingden 'sceptic' spots nine UFOs in night sky

A Self-confessed "total sceptic" has described his close encounter with nine suspected UFOs.

Peter Green, of Private Lane, Haslingden, reported seeing the flying objects, in a diamond formation, while he was walking his dog late at night.

The sighting occurred at 12.30am on Sunday, January 4 - less than four hours before a Lincolnshire wind farm turbine was damaged by a mystery aircraft.


Indonesia: UFO spotted over a lake by multiple witnesses

Recently we reported a UFO sighting in Argentina involving a number of UFOs seen rising from a lake in the province of Entre Rios on January 2 2009 by numerous witnesses. (Also go here) Now we have received reports of a very similar sighting in Indonesia. The parallels are striking and raise many questions.

A group of eight friends planned to go to a concert in the centre of the regional city of Jember in East Java on December 20 2008. Tickets to the concert were sold out so the group headed back to one of their homes in two cars. Heavy traffic in the centre of the city forced the group to go an alternative route past a lake on the outskirts of the town. One of the cars halted as the driver spotted a remarkable sight above the small lake that they were passing.

Perfect ice circle rotating in the River Otter
An unusual rotating ice circle, normally found in the cooler rivers of Scandinavia or North America, has formed in the UK waterways.

The cause of the rare phenomenon is unclear, with very little scientific evidence available to explain the formation of the discs. UFO-enthusiasts claim that, like crop circles, the perfect discs are created by visiting aliens, but scientists believe the extreme cold weather combined with an unusual current is the more likely reason.


UK: Mother and daughter's 'serene' UFO sightings

"It had been so quiet," said Tessa. "There hadn't been a sound all day. There was an incredible stillness in the air. As I watched, the lights started to become larger and brighter - really dazzlingly bright - as one light moved on top of the other, forming a bell-shaped object, the size of a largish house, with what looked like a thin, shiny metal base.

A woman from Polruan spotted a UFO hovering over Fowey around the same time as other myserious sightings were made across the country.

The national newspapers were full of reports over the new year of strange lights seen over Conisholme in Lincolnshire as "orangey-yellow spheres".


UK: UFO spotted over Dumfries

Boxing Day became a night to remember for one young local and his family when they spotted two UFOs over Dumfries.

Macaulay Moodycliffe was setting out to the nearby chip shop from Preistlands Drive where he lives when he spotted strange lights in the sky. He was so awe-struck he ran home to get his family, who also claim to have seen the objects.

Macaulay, who is 16, told the Standard: "They were large orange balls with a circle of orange glow around them that was given off by the light. They appeared to be moving slowly but when I looked closer and I could see a plane in the sky and it was clear they were moving very fast indeed, a lot faster than the aeroplane in the sky."


Argentina: Impressive Red Sphere Caught on Video

[The object] lit up in the vicinity of the Moon around 23:32 hours with a notable aperture, after engaging in a descending trajectory to the west. At a given moment, the object stops and remains suspended for an instant. It later increases in magnitude and gives off three (3) considerable flashes, turning on and off until it ceases to be visible between each flash.


UFO in UK resembles Texas, Ohio sightings

Similar descriptions of a glowing, orange object in the sky have been reported this year in Texas, Ohio and now in England.

A county law enforcement constable in Stephenville, Texas, who watched a UFO recorded on another officer's "dashcam" police videotape camera in January 2008 said, "And then this thing, right in front of my eyes, changes and it looks almost like a jellyfish. I compare it maybe even to a parachute - and now a very bright white."


Canada: UFO researcher says cluster of red lights 'weird'

Ontario - Carmine Montemarano saw it and he wants to know if you saw it, too.

It was on Dec. 26 about a half an hour or so before midnight, when something that looked like fireworks caught Mr. Montemarano's eye. He was standing outside in the driveway of his cousin's house on a quiet street in the Major MacKenzie and Islington area of Kleinburg, bidding goodnight to relatives after a Christmas gift exchange.

"There was five or six bunched up bright, red lights," he said. "They were a little bit bigger than stars, and they were pretty far up there."

Luminous Feline Creature Seen in Northern Venezuela

Shortly after midnight on October 18, 2008, 5 people witnessed the movement of a large and strange luminous creature over the waters of El Supí Beach on Venezuela's Paraguaná Peninsula, located in the vicinity of the town that bears the same name in the coastal state of Falcón in Northwestern Venezuela.

"There was no moon that night, and it was all very dark," remembers Larry Gonzales, who said the events took place while he, his older brother, and other friends lit a bonfire on the edges of the aforementioned Beach, outside a house they had rented for the weekend.
