  • Birds Fall From the Sky in the Thousands Across Europe

    Birds literally fall dead from the sky across Europe, and nobody knows why.

    Thousands of dead swallows and swifts in Greece

    Scientists believe high winds over the last three days have killed or gravely injured thousands of swallows and swifts, migrating from Africa to Europe.

    The carcasses have been found in the streets of Athens, on apartment balconies in the capital, on Aegean islands and around a lake close to the seaport of Nauplia in the Peloponnese. Here a video of the living birds:

    The situation has been described as a major disaster.

    Hundreds of dead herons in Turkey

    The dead birds were found near the village of Köprışık.

    Residents and officials are scared as nobody really knows what’s behind the massive die-off.

    200 dead ducks in Denmark

    About 200 dead ducks have been found along the beaches on Læsø, Denmark and everybody is wondering if they died of bird flu. This is completely unheard of on the island.

    Four of the dead ducks have been tested for avian influenza, but all tested negative.

    So what’s behind this new mass die-off in Denmark? [TV2 Nord]

    1000 dead birds in the streets of Rome

    On February 5, 2020, hundreds of dead birds covered parts of Viale del Policlinico.

    Again, according to officials, the birds died when a tree collapsed due to strong winds across the capital city. [Bufale]

    So there is a clear increase in birds mysteriously dying and falling from the sky. But nobody really can’t tell the cause of these massive mass die-offs.

  • Loud, Mysterious Boom Heard Across Ohio Valley

    People from Hubbard to Girard to Austintown to Youngstown and even as far as Greenville, Pa. reported hearing and feeling a loud boom Friday morning.

    The sound was captured on Nicholas Serra's home surveillance camera around 7:45 a.m.

    "It was a loud bang. Felt like a bomb may have gone off," said Hubbard resident Victoria Malphrus.

    The source is still a mystery.

    The comments came flooding into WKBN before 9 a.m. Some reported their houses shook. Others said they heard what sounded like a loud explosion.

    Mirta Chapman, of the Brier Hill neighborhood in Youngstown, said she was working from home around 8 a.m. when she heard a loud explosion and her house shook.

    (The sound of the boom can be heard approximately 20 seconds into this surveillance video submitted by a viewer)

    She said she's concerned because this isn't the first time it happened — there was something similar two weeks ago as well.

    Another woman who lives on the west side of Youngstown reported hearing the noise and thought her grandson was jumping around. She said the boom shook her windows around 7:45 a.m.

    Amanda, from Girard, said she was on Belmont Avenue near Walmart when she heard the noise and felt the ground shake.

    No one reported any damage from the boom.

    A media spokesperson for the United States Geological Survey, which monitors seismic events, reported no activity or earthquakes Friday morning.

    Some neighbors in Girard wondered in social media comments if the noise came from something at Vallourec, a tubular facility in the area, or Metalico, a scrap metal recycler. So First News called them.

    A representative of Vallourec said the noise didn't come from their facility. A representative of Metalico said its shredder hasn't been in operation all morning.

    Jay Reynolds, a research astronomer and professor at Cleveland State University, said there was a reported meteor event with sound, but that happened Thursday at 7:26 p.m. He was unable to find anything in the area that could have contributed to the noise.

    "I would definitely like to know. In fact, I was looking earlier today just to see if I saw anything, and I hadn't seen anything," said Liberty resident Sharon Cox.

  • Mysterious lights in the night sky baffle Hawaii residents

    People on different islands reported that they saw these lights in the sky on Saturday night, Oct. 24, shortly after 10 p.m. We’re told since it was traveling east.

    Residents on the Big Island and Maui probably got a better view.

    I started videotaping and when they got closer, I start freaking out because I’m like, ‘Oh, what in the world is this?” said Molokai resident Kuuip Kanawaliwali.

    We actually didn’t even know what to think. We didn’t know what it was, where it came from,” said Sheri English who also lives on Molokai. “It just appeared. It was actually very eerie, eerie feeling.

    That was probably what many thought when they saw these mysterious bright lights in the night sky.

    But experts from the Mauna Kea observatories offer a simple explanation of what they suspect.

    So in all likelihood, what they saw last night was the reentry of a rocket booster that was from a rocket that was launched in 2008. So a Chinese rocket that was boosting up a communication satellite for Venezuela,” said Chief Scientist John O’Meara of the W. M. Keck Observatory.

    It’s likely as the years went by, the orbit of the booster eventually decayed. Astronomers found a map of the object’s flight path which was near the Hawaiian Islands. The map also provides information predicting when the rocket booster would reenter.

    So we can’t be 100% certain because we don’t have any of the pieces of the debris. But the pattern of the lights that we saw in our timelapse combined with this map,said Canada France Hawaii Telescope Strategic Communications Director Mary Beth Laychak. “This flight path and the precision at which all of these companies are able to estimate where their objects will enter and how they’ll break up is what really leads us to believe that this was this Venesat-1 reentering the atmosphere.

    We’re told that this is not a rare occurrence because objects get launched into space all the time. But to catch a glimpse of it means you had to be in the right place at the right time–right in the flight path.

    When it hits the atmosphere, prepare for a light show.

    It starts to break apart and heats up and gets really hot. And when it gets really hot, it gets really bright and falls apart,” said O’Meara.

    The entire object that’s breaking apart over our atmosphere is traveling in the exact same orbital path. So we would expect to see all of that debris follow in a straight line,” said Laychak.
