a lady by the name of (Andrea Jannell) was Messing around with her phone on super slow mo trying to catch a lightning strike and ended up catching something falling from the sky. She posted her video in a Group she joined “Alien Star Group,” she also claimed she took the video just messing around, her dad likes to take pics of lighting and there was so much that night,she was messing around and said “let’s take a video to show grandpa (her dad) how bad the lighting is.” She said put it on slow mode. she says ok,when they saw this they freaked out.

I was recording to lightning on super slow mode and caught something strange. What makes it weird is that it’s faster than the lightning (For licensing or usage, contact licensing@viralhog.com)

I was reading through the comments. The lady who recorded it says it isn’t doctored and she’s new to all of this. Sounds quite sincere. She mentions that you can see her reflection in the window as the lightning strikes and then you can see a flash when whatever it is hits. Markovian mentioned a sonic boom but who would know the difference with strikes like that that are leaving thundering booms with each hit… Several UFO investigators are in the comments asking her if they can use her footage.

This is very interesting. And she also says that she can’t investigate where it fell because there are No Trespassing signs posted all around that area and signs that say it’s under 24 hour surveillance. That adds to the intrigue of where this thing fell.

ETA: Adding screenshots of the object falling and the flash when it hits. Keep in mind, this object is falling faster than the lightning hits.

Weird!

Is this actually a strange object falling freakishly fast from up in the sky?

Is it merely a raindrop running down the window it was recorded behind?

Ooh, raindrop mentioned:

It looks good, eh?

Incredible Tadoba

August 8

Tired from handling the camera all day for all the safaris, here I was on my last one and in the last hours. All drained from the shuttering of the cameras, capturing the stripped killer in the scorching heat. Moving on to the spot for something I was sure we won’t see. With the sun being gone hours beyond our heads, the wait was on, hoping for atleast a quick glance. Eyes running through every movement in the woods and ears all fixed on the barks of the deers. Couple of hours passed and I am still hoping for a miracle before the dream run ends. And suddenly it all went quiet with all the deer heads focusing in the woods like they were guides. And there he was, an unnoticeable black figure moving uninterested in his prey. I rooted for the camera and positioned quickly on that spot, my mind and body all fired up forgetting . The melanistic leopard was there, just strolling unaware of his beauty. I zoomed at him and saw the bright eyes staring back with fading rossetes into blackness on his body. A sighting less than half an hour made the best moment of the safaris.

Goodness how exciting it must be…

Very interesting. Very strange. Very cool.

If it’s not a raindrop on a window, then, what is it?

This is an awesome capture, is it not? Props to the camera crew. 🙂

I cannot fathom how some examples of Homo sapiens sapiens do not recognize this sort of behavior as intelligence. I mean, really? Maybe such individuals are capable only of seeing the group as a whole and as an amorphous mass and are, sadly, unable to look deeper and resolve the individuals within said group. Sad because they are missing out on so much.

UFO Videos From The Hudson Valley NewYork USA

UFO Videos From The Hudson Valley New York.

Oh dear. LOL, even.

I remember this guy. He had a lady partner in crime most of the time… gosh, Crystal something, I think. I had one of her books! Bought it from her in person at one of Mr. White’s UFO Cons somewhere north of New Haven, CT. I remember thinking that they were a bit out there. Well, more than a bit. And, hey, I was a bit credulous back then, I admit, so that might give you an idea of how out there I thought they were. I was in my late 20s, early 30s. We were all a bit woo, eh. But, really! Sigh.

Ah, well. The sightings at Pine Bush, NY, where these videos were probably taken, were quite numerous and some of them were probably anomalous happenings.

Or military from Stewart AFB, just a stone’s throw away.

Note that these three videos are most definitely not of the notorious Hudson Valley UFO, regardless of the location being in the Hudson Valley.

These are planes. At just before the 9 min mark it’s a C5 Galaxy, from or going to Stewart. The actual Hudson Valley sightings were quite awesome and of an enormous boomerang shaped thing moving low and slow. With dozens of people stopping on the highway to watch them.

Those were good times. Sightings worldwide were plentiful and excitingly bizarre. We don’t get those any more. It’s sad, really.

Maybe they’ll return one day, he said, longingly.

 

 

2019 REAL UFO SIGHTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

William Guy
Sep 28, 2019

Red-flagged as “mighty freakin’ short.” Besides for the title, of course.

Seriously, now, if you saw something like that in your immediate proximity, wouldn’t you film it for a bit longer than a half a minute? Maybe till it went away? That says fake to me.

Oh well.

Fleet of mysterious lights appear above sea near North Carolina filmed from a ferry

October 01, 2019

William Guy was on a ferry traveling from Ocracoke Village to Swan Quarters North Carolina on September 18, 2019 when he noticed a fleet of strange bright lights in the sky on which he started to record the strange event.

William said that that there were about 25 people on the ferry with him that have seen it too and they also recorded the fleet of lights and none has ever seen it before.

We may assume that these lights are not flares since no source can be found in the entire area that may have fired flares.

What could these lights have been?

There were 25 people with him, he says. Why aren’t there any other videos of these lights?

Why?

In my earliest yoot I spent all of my free time in the wood exploring the forest, stream and unterrock worlds. I was especially fond of salamanders along with all the other amphibians; and we were blessed with a nice variety of salamanders, frogs and toads in my just-built street on the outskirts of suburbia. Good, good times, even though I was alone, the exploration was enough.

Or not.

Beautiful Angel phenomena filmed in the clouds, Brazil (Disclose Screen)

Send Me An Angel: Bizarre Atmospheric Phenomenon Caught on Camera in Brazil

© Photo: YouTube / Disclose Screen ‘The Grimreefar’    VIRAL 23:13 13.08.2019

The massive shining figure was recorded soaring in a cloudy sky, changing direction but retaining its bizarre shape. It is unclear whether the filmed object is an energy source or a remarkable light refraction.

A strange and unique atmospheric phenomenon was caught on camera in Brazil. A video uploaded by a UFO hunter who goes under the name of Disclose Screen “the Greemreefar” shows a T-shaped shining object in the cloudy sky, which roughly resembles an angel in a long robe.

“It looks like light refraction but then again it looks like some type of energy source,” the cameraman says on the video. “It’s even got the harmonious appearance of an angel.”

The T-shaped object remains in motion for a period of time, moving from one cloud to another, changing angle and direction.

People commenting on the video which was posted Monday found the figure to also resemble a dragon.

The nature of the phenomenon remains unclear. Several conjoined ball lightning spheres, however unlikely, could be one possible explanation.

Fascinating! Much more so than the “B.V. Mary” sighting a little while ago. Because it hangs out and moves on the clouds.

Could this be a plasma lifeform in a rare visible state? It needs to be considered. Research has shown that plasma will act in ways that are indicative of life as we know it. That was at a time around Einstein’s early days. I have long been a proponent of plasma life. It just seems so logical. And there is such good evidence pointing in that direction.

Strange Flying Objects Spotted During Tornado in Amsterdam Spark UFO Theories Online

VIRAL
20:54 16.08.2019

A peculiar phenomenon was recently observed in the skies above Amsterdam just as a tornado swept across the city centre last week.

A video uploaded on YouTube channel Mavi777, depicts what appears to be a strange glowing object soaring in the sky near the top of the swirling column, with a caption claiming that the footage was recorded on 10 August. The veracity of the video could not be immediately confirmed.

I’ve always liked these storm chaser FOs. They’ve been recorded so many times now.

These objects could well be living plasmoids, too, perhaps feeding off the crumbs of the storm’s energies.

Ah, who knows, eh!

They’re nice to look at, these things, nice to wonder about.

Be well
