Leaked Pentagon report reveals US aircraft carrier stalked for days by UFO traveling at 'ballistic missile speed'

A leaked Pentagon report has revealed new details about the UFO encounter that shocked Navy fighter pilots above the Pacific.

The 2009 report does not bear any date or agency logo, but four officials confirmed that it was written as part of a Pentagon program with input from multiple agencies, KLAS reported.

The Las Vegas news station obtained the unclassified report while visiting Washington, DC for a debriefing arranged by former Senator Harry Reid.

The report reveals stunning new first-hand accounts of the November 14, 2004 encounter, which was documented in video that emerged in December of last year.

The incident unfolded as the Nimitz carrier group was conducting training exercises off the coast of southern California and Mexico ahead of a deployment to the Arabian Sea.


Crypto-canid or wolfdog? Mysterious wolf-like animal killed in Montana

Days after a wolf-like creature was fatally shot on a ranch in Denton, Montana, officials are still unable to determine what type of animal it is.
Was it a wolf, some type of hybrid, or a creature that hasn't been seen in Montana since the Ice Age?

On May 16 a lone wolf-like animal was shot and killed on a ranch outside Denton. With long grayish fur, a large head and an extended snout, the animal shared many of the same characteristics as a wolf; but its ears were too large, it's legs and body too short, its fur uncharacteristic of that common to a wolf.

So far, the exact species is a mystery

So what was it? At this point, no one is 100 percent sure.

"We have no idea what this was until we get a DNA report back," said Bruce Auchly, information manager for Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks. "It was near a rancher's place, it was shot, and our game wardens went to investigate. The whole animal was sent to our lab in Bozeman. That's the last I ever heard of it."

Social media from around the Lewistown area was buzzing last week; with many people chiming in on what they believed the creature to be.


Something unusual filmed in the skies of Montana

Weird object in MT Skies
The team at Into The Little Belts shot some aerial video in the Highwood Mountains on Monday, May 21st, and captured something that has people puzzled.

They wrote: "When we turned the drone to get a view of Round and Square Butte, we captured something pretty interesting... a UFO? maybe just a plastic bag? Either way, it is a pretty strange thing we captured. In this video we slow the footage down and zoom in. What do you think it is?"

On Thursday, Into The Little Belts shared the video with KRTV with the following message:
KRTV- The other day, we were using our aerial camera in the Highwood Mountains and captured this strange anomaly. We posted it to our page and got a ton of responses of what it could be such as "ball Lightning", Ice from the storm, Cottonwood fluff, weather balloon and many other theories. We have landed on ice, but still have our doubts. Maybe you could help us figure this out?

An unidentified flying object was spotted hovering above rural Hastings yesterday.

A student pilot captured a shot of the mysterious object, which seemed rather indecisive about what direction it was going.

Freelance photographer Tim Whittaker posted the photos on his Facebook page and received plenty of suggestions about what the object might be, from a drone wearing a raincoat to an escaped roast turkey.

Hawke's Bay Aerodrome flight instructor Cassandra Jefferies said the object was first spotted at about 600m or 2000ft above the aerodrome and aircraft was sent up in an attempt to identify it.


Bigfoot: The 10 most convincing sightings?

For decades, people around the world have been fascinated with the legend of bigfoot, sasquatch, yeti, or whatever you choose to call it. Sightings of a furry, upright biped and reports of beastly footprints have been reported from as far afield as the Himalayas. Although no definitive proof exists, the (often questionable) reports continue adding up. Outside plunged into the deep, dark corners of this subculture to compile the most famous-perhaps most convincing-bigfoot photos ever captured. Here's the evidence. Is bigfoot real? You be the judge.

Photo above: Arguably the most famous and influential Bigfoot footage is the 1967 film shot by Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin in Northern California. The "Bigfoot walk" it depicts has been parodied by many, but never truly replicated. Even with this enhanced image, it's hard to tell if it's a person in a gorilla suit or the real deal.

A youth group was camping in the Marble Mountain Wilderness when leader Jim Mills noticed a strange-looking creature skulking along a ridge nearby. He filmed it for nearly seven minutes, making the somewhat-grainy footage the longest video of an alleged bigfoot sighting.

As the snow continues to melt at Sun Peaks, search efforts are ramping back up in hopes of finding Ryan Shtuka.

The 21-year-old man went missing on Feb. 17, after leaving a house party in the Burfield Drive area, a short distance away from his home. He hasn't been seen since, despite countless efforts from volunteers who have scoured Sun Peaks over the past 12 weeks.

Kamloops Search and Rescue manager Alan Hobler says nearly 20 crew members went to Sun Peaks this weekend to help search for Shtuka, along with 40 to 50 volunteers who came in from Alberta.

Hobler says depending on where you are in Sun Peaks, much of the snow has started to melt, but north-facing slopes still have quite a bit. He adds that searchers were able to scour areas that had less snow, going over every inch to see if anything has been missed.

Miracle or Mothman? Security camera captures image of winged creature in Michigan

Mothman, Michigan winged creature
Do you believe in miracles?

A group of people in East Jordan believe they have come across one.

"I said 'That's an angel!' And I was just blown away," said Glen Thorman, whose security camera captured the image. "I couldn't wait to send it to my wife and send it to Deneille. And I said 'I got an angel, and my camera took a picture of an angel.'"

The camera is only activated by a motion sensor.

Comment: The creature is more likely to be a Mothman as sightings of such creatures have been increasing over the past few years:


Some of the strangest UFO sightings in the city of Hull's history

UFO clouds
Nothing captures the imagination quite like the supernatural.

From ghosts and ghouls to unidentified flying objects, Hull and East Yorkshire is no stranger to the paranormal.

Historian Mike Covell has been spending the past few months in painstaking research into a few of the forgotton UFO sightings from around the area.

Since May 2008, the National Archives has witnessed a slow and steady release of UFO files to the public. The files feature thousands, if not millions of files, and every time they release them, they give Ufologists, or people that study UFO's, a short window in which they can be downloaded for free.

A small community in northern Michigan believes it has been touched by an angel after a motion-sensor camera captured a mysterious object apparently looming over a parked vehicle. People online, however, remain unconvinced.

According to the local church in East Jordan and the man whose camera detected the presence, the image clearly shows a head and wings.

Prop or prank? Mystery car hanging from bridge perplexes Toronto residents

Was it the aftermath of a horrific accident? An art project? A prank?

Police and passersby were left perplexed and concerned after a burned-out car was found dangling precariously from a Toronto bridge as traffic rumbled overhead.

Soon after the blue sedan was spotted during rush-hour traffic on Wednesday, police, firefighters and paramedics showed up to assess the mysterious car. Strung up by a cable, it floated over a grassy area and posed no danger to public safety, officials said.

City police at first said it was a prop for a movie shoot. But after speaking with city officials, they retracted this explanation.

No movie shoot had been authorised, they said, and police were now investigating how exactly the car ended up suspended in mid-air.
