The glowing orbs appeared at around 10pm on Saturday rising slowly into the clouds before eventually vanishing.

Tony Barber, of Farnham Lane, in Langton Green saw the spectacle after his neighbour alerted him. He said: "They were rising into the sky for about 20 minutes then they disappeared. We went outside and watched and tried to guess what they were. We couldn't really come up with anything except they were huge hot air balloons."


Ireland Flooded by UFO Claims

Ireland is in the grip of a space invasion, according to UFO Society of Ireland president Betty Meyler.

She says reports of unidentified flying objects are flooding in.

One man, Mark, reported seeing a silver saucer over Lough Key near Carrick-on-Shannon.

He said: "The craft was reflective silver like stainless steel, with no lights or windows."

"Martin D" emailed Betty to tell her he spotted a UFO over his HOUSE.

Video: UFOs over Santiago, Chile

Comment: The amateur video is part of an impressive series that can be found here. The images appear to have been taken on December 7th, 2003, as displayed on the screen in one of the videos. As it surfaced on the Internet only 3 and a half years later we wonder how many more pieces of evidence are held by private people which remain unreported.

Chile: Chupacabras attack in Vina del Mar

Margarita Ugalde's family underwent an experience worthy of a horror movie in the early hours of Thursday morning in the Recreo sector of Vina del Mar after having a face-to-face encounter with the legendary and feared Chupacabras.

According to the woman's story, the event took place at around 4 in the morning when all were asleep and the powerful noise made by the strange animal shook them out of their slumber.

"An animal walked over the roof - it was as though it had come in flying and suddenly landed there. It sounded strong and dragged its wings, walking quickly and making a thundering noise, as though it were very heavy. It's just like the last time. The same happened years ago - we heard the same noises on the roof," explained Margarita Ugalde.


'Eerie' UFO spotted in British Columbia, Canada skies

Lisa McCubbin isn't sure what she saw when she looked into the eastern sky early Monday morning but she doesn't think it was a small plane, hang glider or kite.

At about 12:30 a.m. she could hear some people on the street outside her apartment shouting and when she looked out her window she saw what the three young people were reacting to: It appeared to be a light grey or translucent triangle with sharp edges that approached the city in a straight path, did a loop and left.

"It circled, then it went straight again," she says.

The whole incident lasted about 20 seconds by McCubbin's estimation.

"It was completely silent - really, really eerie," she said.


Yowie! - mysterious creature sighted in Australia

A mysterious creature allegedly sighted scampering into the bush outside Batemans Bay has all the hallmarks of the legendary Yowie, according to cryptozoology experts.

Around 11pm last Saturday a Batemans Bay resident, who wishes to remain anonymous, saw what she described as a two-legged non-human creature in her headlights.

She said it was more than six feet tall, covered in a dark brownish fur and appeared and moved like no other animal she had ever seen.

After hearing the report, cryptozoologist Paul Cropper said it was consistent with many he had heard from around the country.

Mr Cropper said Batemans Bay was one of the country's hot spots for sightings of the mysterious ape-like creature.


Video: UFO fleet over Lima, Peru

Video: UFO fleet over Lima, Peru on May 20th, 2007.

Comment: The video is taken from a Peruvian network in Spanish; no translation is available. However, the comments do not add much to what is already obvious from the footage. A witness describes the objects as "flying saucers", while the reporter only speaks of "white spots forming shapes in the sky" that were seen for 30 minutes over the city. A commander of the Peruvian Air Force compared the sighting with others previously recorded over Mexico. Though he cautioned against calling them "extraterrestrial", he was also unable to provide any conventional explanation.


Nessie's Back! Loch Ness monster aficionados say new video among the finest taken

She's as much an emblem - and a tourist draw - as tartan, bagpipes, and shortbread.

And now Nessie's back.

An amateur scientist has captured what Loch Ness Monster watchers say is among the finest footage ever taken of the elusive mythical creature reputed to swim beneath the waters of Scotland's most mysterious lake.

"I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this jet black thing, about 45-feet (15 meters) long, moving fairly fast in the water," said Gordon Holmes, the 55-year-old a lab technician from Shipley, Yorkshire, who took the video this past Saturday.

He said it moved at about 6 mph (10 kph) and kept a fairly straight course.

Lights in Dorset Sky 'Like Close Encounters'

It was like a scene from the movie Close Encounters, according to at least one eye-witness.

Orange lights dancing in the night sky moved in formation, coming and going in waves.

Dorset police confirmed they had received 'a few' calls and suggested it could possibly be a meteor shower. They are discounting the possibility of a military cause because, they say, the services inform them if they are conducting exercises at night in the area.

Taxi firm boss Nicky Smith, 38, of Capstone Road said this morning: "It was an incredibly strange experience. I've never seen anything like it before.
