Time and distance separate us from some of these events in such a way that it is quite understandable how contemporary researchers would feel more comfortable dismissing them as rumor, journalistic exaggeration or outright hoax. Publishing pictures of lights in the sky is far more satisfying, of course.
Nevertheless, I feel these cases deserve their day in court, despite the inability to put the events -- or their witnesses -- on the stand.

A UFO enthusiast claims a strange multi-coloured light 'broke' her video camera as she tried to record it hovering over her house.
The woman, who reveals on her YouTube channel that her name is Melody, describes multi-coloured ball of light, that appear to be chasing an orange 'orb'. At several points throughout the footage, the mysterious ball appears to change from red to blue to green, but that wasn't the strangest thing she noticed.
In the video, Melody says: "There is a humming noise coming from this craft. "We're not sure if it's a form of military helicopter that was investigating that orange glowing ball, or was it some, UFO, perhaps an alien spacecraft? "As I came out to film it, our camcorder began to malfunction."

The accusation of demon possession has a long history within early Christian literature and liturgy - even if demon possession seems only the stuff of horror movies today.
For hundreds of years, demons were seen by early Christians as one of the main causes of disease. Consequently, demon possession and one of its cures, exorcism, were accepted parts of healing in the later Roman empire into the middle ages. A number of early Christian authors point to demons as the spreaders of sickness. In the third century, the writer Tertullian's Apology (22) even notes that such demons inflict "sickness and other grievous calamities upon our bodies." He also alleged that demons specifically taught women to use magical herbs. As Nicole Kelley, a professor of Religion at Florida State University has argued, demons were one way for early Christians to explain epilepsy and other sicknesses. Demonic thoughts could also creep in and cause havoc. The monk Evagrius Ponticus (345-399 CE) proposed eight cardinal demonic thoughts: gluttony, lust, greed, anger, sadness, acedia (sloth), vainglory, and pride. These eight would later be reworked as the seven deadly sins, as further developed by thinkers such as a monk named John Cassian and then Pope Gregory the Great.
Comment: The author is correct; historical misogyny in the form of accusations of demonic possession/evil is nothing new. For an in-depth discussion of these types of accusations as they relate to several other important historical issues, read: Witches, Comets and Planetary Cataclysms. (you'll be happy you did!)
Sometimes, though, these types of accusations may have some validity!: Top Russian Exorcist: Hillary shows 'clear signs' of demonic possession

There was a time when this sort of thing would have gone down as 'The Great North Carolina Lights', but now it's almost an everyday occurrence!

Authorities claim extra sanitization was needed after they noticed sensitive material had been missed which did not have a Freedom of Information (FoI) exemption - meaning it could not be released to the waiting public.
A spokesman for the National Archives told German paranormal website Grenzwissenschaft-Aktuell that:
"The National Archives (TNA) and the Ministry of Defence (MoD) had agreed a timetable for the release of these records which would have made the records available for the public at TNA this autumn.
Unfortunately, following the transfer of files to TNA in June, additional information which is covered by FoI exemption was identified, resulting in the files being returned to the MoD in August.
"This has delayed the release of these files. The MoD are now ensuring that all information that is covered by an exemption is identified."
The UFO appeared on Wednesday evening in the Praille area near Geneva stadium. Footage of the unusual dark circular object was captured by numerous witnesses, with several people posting photos and videos on social media.
"Everyone sees the same thing as me ???" asked Servette FC footballer Matías Vitkieviez on Facebook. "It's completely crazy!!! UFO above the industrial area behind the stage of la praille #ufogva."
One witness told Tribune de Genève that the UFO emitted a shrill noise and was "as big as a plane."

The archdiocese of Milan in northern Italy has doubled the number of its exorcists, while an exorcism hotline has been launched in Rome, but those in the field claim it isn't nearly enough.
Rome's most famous exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth (pictured), died last month and his successor, Father Vincenzo Taraborelli, says that he cannot keep up with the daily requests for liberation from demonic influence. "Padre Vincenzo," as he is known, handles some 30 "clients" a day, and is calling on the Church to appoint more priests as exorcists to share in the mission of satanic deliverance.
"There are only nine of us left and many more are needed," he said. "We need other priests like me to meet the needs of so many families."
Last month, an Italian documentary on exorcism called Liberami won the award for "best film" in the Venice Horizons category at this year's Venice Film Festival, drawing still more attention to this rapidly growing industry.

Brett Anderson captured the two lights in an almost four minute long video he posted online.
Mr Anderson wrote that he filmed the lights about 10.45pm.
"There was no sound coming from them, and as you can see, one shot something out of itself and then stopped, while the other one crossed its path then continued on over my head and of into the distance," he wrote.
Another social media post on Facebook indicates the lights were also seen at Bellvista, west of Caloundra.
Donna Radcliffe took to the Sunshine Coast Community Board to see if anyone else saw two bright orange lights in the Bellvista area about 11.30pm.
There was speculation that the lights were space junk burning up or drones.

About 15 minutes away, in Port Arthur we have some more high strangeness going on with people swerving off the road, their electronics going out, a strange high-pitched noise going through the radio. A woman named Rhonda reported on Facebook that she was headed back home from the mall when she encountered something very strange:
Did anyone else passed by the Groves loop just now and experience a weird wave-like thing that shutdown things in the car? A weird high-pitched noise came from the radio, lights dimmed, the radio stopped, everyone around was breaking or pulling over. Cars swerved not knowing what was going on. Anyone know what this was?Now that seems to me like an EMP wave or something like that something that is knocking out power systems along this area. Really bizarre.
Comment: Not the first such appearance: this happened in Sabah, Malaysia two years ago:

On 2 September 2014, many Sabahans have been reporting sightings of strange lights in the sky on social media
