High Strangeness


Mysterious Lights Spotted Over Phoenix, Again

Phoenix, Arizona - Nearly a decade after the highly publicized 'Phoenix Light Phenomenon', more strange lights have appeared in the night sky over downtown Phoenix.

A still shot from video of the lights in formation over Phoenix, Arizona.

Tuesday night, mysterious lights lit up the western skies over Phoenix and soon after, phones began ringing off the hook at radio, television and police stations from witnesses wondering what the lights were.

The Yuma Marine Base claims it has the answer. Base officials said the amber-colored flares came from training flights on the Goldwater Gunnery Range. They went on to explain that the amber flares are used as targets.

Comment: Yep, I can imagine finding it hard to believe you're watching 'flares' when you see the thing move along in the sky for a long distance, in perfect formation. Well, at least they didn't call it 'swamp gas' or 'cloud formations' this time.


Dozens of UFOs sighted over Islington - Stopped Traffic

Dozens of mysterious lights were spotted hovering in the sky above Archway - spreading panic among residents below.

Unidentified flying orange objects stopped traffic and left residents staring skyward in disbelief at around 5.30pm on Thursday.

Islington police received four calls within a matter of minutes.

Witness Alix McAlister, 34, a market stall trader from Bredgar Road, Archway, said: "I just picked up my son from nursery in Bredgar Road. I had just come out of the door when I noticed what was going on in the sky.

"There were a group of them - 10 to 15 of them moving together. My first impression was that they reminded me of a squadron of aeroplanes in formation. But they didn't have a proper formation and they were all moving at the same speed.

Pilot Photographs Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon

Weather Balloon? Hoax? "UFO"?

I am a freight pilot and my route takes me from Reno to Elko, NV. On the 29th of December at approximately 1400 hrs. local, I was leaving the FBO and walking to my plane. The day was severe clear and crisp. There were a few contrails crossing and nothing else. I saw Pablo, one of the linemen, looking up at the sky. I asked what he was looking at and he directed my eyes to an object so high up it seemed to be against the blue of the sky. The object looked like the ball at the end of a pushpin held at arm's length. It was the color of quicksilver and looked perfectly spherical. It was moving from south to north and we saw it pass behind a number of contrails; some of which had to be in the FL400 range. One more lineman came out to see the object and we observed it move north for about 15 minutes all told.

Cloud Formations Draw Interest

On Monday, people from Mississippi to Texas reported seeing what they thought was a meteor flying through the sky.

Meteorologists with the National Weather Service in Jackson said the occurrence can be explained and it wasn't a meteor.

Instead they say airplane exhaust mixed with the precipitation to cause a hole in the clouds.

Capt. Jim Thornton of the Mississippi National Guard said he heard a loud sound, then looked up and saw the line through the sky.

"The only sound I heard was like a crack in the sky, and it continued north, just a matter of seconds. Most unbelievable thing I've ever seen in my life," said Thornton.


Another one: UFO's seen over South Shore sky

It's hard to draw a surfer's attention away from the next wave, but whatever was in the southwest sky Friday evening around 6:20 p.m. drew a crowd along Kewalo Basin and Ala Moana Beach Park.

Honolulu resident Peter Hollingworth described what he and many others saw as two lights circling in the sky, about 45 degrees above the horizon.

Video of one of the lights was recorded from the KHON 2 SkyCam.

"These two little fireballs with a stream behind it," said Hollingworth. "Looked kind of like a shooting star but it just kept going. They changed directions a few times, at first it was coming in then it turned, then it went out then it came back in again."


Human Mutes and UFOs

Cattle mutilations: we've all heard about them; and everyone has an opinion. For some, aliens are visiting the Earth and excising tissue, blood, and organs from the animals for God-knows-what nefarious purpose. Others see the UFO angle of the cattle mutes as a brilliantly executed cover-story to hide a darker truth: namely that "the Government" is concerned by emerging-diseases in the animal kingdom that may spread to the human race, and is carefully keeping watch on the situation by slicing and dicing a few animals now and again for experimental purposes. Then there are those that roll their eyes and conclude that it's all a bunch of hysteria-driven nonsense caused by nothing stranger than predators, the ever-churning rumor-mill, and cultural mythology.


More than 50 UFOs spotted during Snowstorm

More than 35 people called police on Wednesday night to report seeing UFOs during heavy snow.

The callers, including a traffic cop, said 50 orange lights hovered in the sky for 15 minutes before drifting into the night.

Moira Dawson, 57, said: "We thought they were fireworks but they didn't make any noise. They just floated in the snowfall."

Another witness near Gatwick airport in West Sussex said: "We thought it was an invasion."

Falling Ice Damages Car in Florida: Aliens, Atmosphere, or Airplane?

Town 'N Country, Florida - Neighbors heard a whistling sound is what they described before noticing that a neighbor's car was severely damaged.

The Ford Mustang had a 100 pound block of ice sitting in the backseat. The back end of the car was caved in. The only explanation from neighbors is the ice fell from the sky. Hillsborough deputies do not believe it was a criminal activity.

The 20-year-old owner of the car is upset and did not want to talk to Tampa Bay's 10 News. His father says he has not seen anything like it before.
