The clip was allegedly recording in Aguadillia in Puerto Rico on April 25, 2013 but the footage has only recently been released by the Department of Homeland Security by a whistleblower.
In the video, the strange metallic sphere hurtles through the sky before dropping down and plunging into the ocean.
When it re-emerges, it appears to have split in two.
The object was being monitored by US Customs and Border Protection, according to Headlines & Global News.
Nick Pope, a UFO expert, said: "Assuming the video isn't a clever hoax - which is always a possibility these days - it's a fascinating piece of footage.
One of his most significant books was the 1976 release "Hostage to the Devil," which dealt with demonic possession and exorcisms. Martin was involved with numerous paranormal cases and worked closely with John Zaffis and others in the field when they needed a priest trained in the Catholic rites of exorcism.
Martin died of a cerebral hemorrhage in 1999. Some say there were strange circumstances around his death. He is buried in New York.
People continue to discover his work and over the past five years, director Martin Stalker has been hard at work on a production titled "Hostage to the Devil," after Malachi's famous book. Information from press releases include these details:
...a film which examines age-old questions about the existence of the Devil and the debate over good verses evil, all through the life of a controversial, Irish-born Jesuit priest, Fr. Malachi Martin.You can watch the trailer, here:

Recalling an interview with Ed and Lorraine Warren, the real-life couple whose work inspired 'Conjuring' films
Mon, 13 Jun 2016 05:00 UTC
(Editor's note: "Conjuring 2" topped the weekend box office. The movie was inspired by the exploits of the late Ed Warren and his wife, Lorraine. Eleven years before Ed Warren's death, I sat down with the couple and discussed their work as demonologists. What follows is an article that appeared in the Union-News on Oct. 31, 1995).
Ed Warren says he has been thrown across a room, seen tables fly and heard the kind of language few others have.
No, Warren isn't a bouncer. He's a demonologist.
Warren and his wife of 50 years, Lorraine, have spent more than four decades investigating reports of hauntings, demonic possession, and things that go bump in the night.
Outside the realm of skeptics, the Connecticut couple is considered the country's premiere "ghostbusters." They have worked with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Roman Catholic dioceses of Worcester and Hartford.
"Our job is to go in, evaluate what's going on, document it, and then turn it over to church authorities," Lorraine Warren said.
Comment: For an excellent if hellacious summation of Ed and Lorraine's life's work, read The Demonologist, by Gerald Brittle (just not at night!). The book will not only give one an appreciation for the type of spiritual warfare described in the article, but knowledge of two incredibly strong and courageous individuals who worked tirelessly to help individuals and families under ethereal and physical attack. The Warrens also spent much of their time educating the public about the nature and reality of 'possession' and warned many of the dangers of dabbling in the occult. Since this reading is NOT for the faint hearted, it may even be a better idea to forgo reading The Demonologist and just reading this SOTT Forum thread about a similar book, Malachi Martin's Hostage to the Devil for some essential understandings about this topic.

The caretaker of a 78-year-old woman called the police in North Bend, Oregon's pre-dawn hours to report people vandalizing her vehicle, KVAL news reports. The cops came and went, finding nothing, only to be called back at 5:30 a.m. for a similar complaint. The officers suspected she was hallucinating, and took her to the hospital, where she was given a clean bill of health and discharged.
But as the day wore on, everyone who'd come in contact with her started showing similar symptoms of mental distress: Both deputies, the 78-year-old woman, and a hospital employee all had to be hospitalized for similar symptoms.
That afternoon, a hazmat team descended on Oregon's Bay Area Hospital, and the home where it all started, decontaminating vehicles and clearing the emergency room. They turned up nothing. "No source of the contamination has been found," Sgt. Pat Downing told KVAL. "The vehicles, equipment and uniforms have been checked with no contaminates identified or located on or about them." Not a blip in the patients' blood samples, either.

So I thought the Aeon video above was worth posting, along with the asking for your thoughts on what form ETI might take?
Comment: When it comes to the UFO phenomenon and the vast amount of 'High Strangeness' events recorded across millennia of human existence, outside the box thinking is a necessity. The works of John Keel are a vital primer to the understanding of such phenomena and his work makes a mockery of the 'Nuts and Bolts' explanation of alien interaction with the human race.
For an extensive overview of the subject, see also Laura Knight-Jadczyk's book, High Strangeness: Hyperdimensions and the Process of Alien Abduction.

Contrary to its claim in 2013 that all of its formerly classified UFO-files were released to the public via the National Archives, in 2014 the MoD had to admit that 18 UFO-files were held back. The release of these files was initially set for 2015, but the date was delayed to early 2016, then to the summer of 2016, and then delayed again to August. In August, it was said that the release was yet again rescheduled, and that the files would not be published before early 2017.
Comment: For more information on government involvement in covering up the UFO phenomenon, suppressing information and spreading disinformation, you can listen to our interview with Richard Dolan, Author of UFOs and the National Security State.

Experts believe mysterious aluminum object dating back 250,000 years 'could be ancient UFO technology'
Thu, 20 Oct 2016 18:00 UTC
Metallic aluminum was not really produced by mankind until around 200 years ago, so the discovery of the large chunk that could be up to 250,000 years old is being held as a sensational find.
The details of the discovery were never made public at the time because it was pulled out of the earth in communist Romania in 1973.
Builders working on the shores of the Mures River not far from the central Romanian town of Aiud found three objects 10 metres (33 feet) under the ground.
