Strange Lights in West Midlands Skies, UK

A 35 year old woman has recorded strange lights over her house with her phone. She recorded approximately 40 minutes of the lights hovering our her house and she can not offer any explanation as to what they might be. You can see from the video below the lights are not there in the daytime so one can rule out street lights or any other permanent fixture.

The mother of three was quoted this in regards to her experience:

“I was painting upstairs then went to the back door for a cig. I looked up and there were these shapes, like orbs, in the sky. I looked up and there were these shapes, like orbs, in the sky. They didn’t look like stars, or planes or helicopters, they were just hanging there. I thought I’d had a few too many rum and cokes! Source:  Birmingham Mail

UFO or Mirage Over Iceberg?

Last week the internet was a buzz with a video of what appears to be a UFO hovering over an iceberg. YouTube user 235FireFly posted the video of what looks like a white object spinning around the of an iceberg in Newfoundland.

He stated that while he was driving around Salvage, Newfoundland and Labrador looking at icebergs he noticed a white chunk of ice barely attached to an iceberg.

“What you can see is a white object not attached to the iceberg, but rather spinning around and changing shape.”

The video has quickly gone viral and there has been much speculation as to just what this object is.  One commenter has guessed that it could be an alien ship using a cloaking device.

The best guess is that it is simply a mirage, case closed. More specifically a Fata Morgana. The National Snow and Ice Data Center explains that this type of superior mirage appears

because of the weather condition known as a temperature inversion, where cold air lies close to the ground with warmer air above it. Since cold air is denser than warm air, it bends light towards the eyes of someone standing on the ground, changing how a distant object appears. Superior mirages can produce a few different types of images: Distant objects can appear to float high above their actual position, for example a boat can look like it is floating in the sky, or an object below the horizon can become visible.

What do you think of this video? Is it just a mirage or is it something more than that?

Alien Life Will Be Discovered in Our Lifetime

Will alien life forms be discovered in our lifetime? The answer is yes according to Dan Werthimer, of the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Research Center. He was speaking to high ranking US government officials when he made this statement.  This statement was made when speaking about developing tools and technology to find signals from other civilizations or alien life forms out there in the universe.

Speaking to the US congress, lawmakers and scientists said that making contact extraterrestrial life will not only happen, but it will happen soon.

‘It would be bizarre if we were alone,’ he said.

‘The universe is likely to be teeming with primitive life.  – Source
