  • Mysterious Red Lights in Virginia and Nevada Prompt UFO Speculation

    The ongoing coronavirus lockdown seems to have endowed prominent star-gazers with more time and energy to observe the night skies in the search for some unusual activity, as myriads of videos have been circulating online, pointing at alleged proof of UFO existence. Or might there be another explanation for what is going on?

    Some unexplained red lights formations were spotted in two US states, Virginia and Nevada, at the end of April, raising questions about secret military exercises or, possibly, alien intrusion to our planet.

    The sets of orbswere captured by two eyewitnesses in Richmond and Las Vegas, on 25 April and 27 April respectively, with the footage then being combined and shared by UFO enthusiasts from the "The Hidden Underbelly 2.0" YouTube channel.

    In the first clip, the eyewitness is heard claiming that the footage of the chaotically moving sky objects is nothing but real while describing the phenomenon as "red light", despite the objects appearing to be visibly white.

    Just a few days later, another observer in Las Vegas captured on camera a similar mysterious pattern of orbs, now clearly red-coloured, that firstly take a diamond shape and then break apart, while disappearing from the sky in sequence.

    The author of the assembled video suggested that the weird objects could not be planes, due to their close proximity to each other, and suggested the channel's followers look deeper into the matter.

    Some viewers rushed to speculate that the objects could be linked to ongoing military exercises in the areas, while others claimed that the weird patterns could only be of extra-terrestrial origin, as aliens were potentially observing humans during the coronavirus lockdown, surprised that the Earth's activity has recently been so dramatically halted. "That there is an extremely high possibility that we are actually being visited by non-human lifeforms. Now non believers let that set in", one user wrote. I heard sightings in India went up 800%! It's either because of the lockdown... people just have more free time and are noticing them more or they are observing us more than before", another person suggested.

    Whatever might be the real truth behind the footage, the Hidden Underbelly 2.0 channel has now got more than 40,000 subscribers, as well as a large pile of "mysterious" videos that often leave their viewers puzzled.

  • Pentagon officially releases videos showing "unidentified aerial phenomena

    The Pentagon on Monday formally released three unclassified videos taken by Navy pilots that have circulated for years showing interactions with "unidentified aerial phenomena."

    One of the videos shows an incident from 2004, and the other two were recorded in January 2015, according to Sue Gough, a Defense Department spokeswoman. The videos became public after unauthorized leaks in 2007 and 2017, and the Navy previously verified their authenticity.

    "After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena," Gough said.

    The 2004 incident occurred about 100 miles out in the Pacific, according to The New York Times, which first reported on the video in 2017. Two fighter pilots on a routine training mission were dispatched to investigate unidentified aircraft that a Navy cruiser had been tracking for weeks.

    The Navy pilots found an oblong object about 40 feet long hovering about 50 feet above the water, and it began a rapid ascent as the pilots approached before quickly flying away. "It accelerated like nothing I've ever seen," one of the pilots told The Times.

    The pilots left the area to meet at a rendezvous point about 60 miles away. When they were still about 40 miles out, the ship radioed and said the object was at the rendezvous point, having traversed the distance "in less than a minute," the pilot told The Times.

    The two other videos of incidents in 2015 include footage of objects moving rapidly through the air. In one, an object is seen racing through the sky and begins rotating in midair.

    "Dude, this is a f--king drone, bro," a pilot exclaims on the video. Another person says "there's a whole fleet of them."

    "They're all going against the wind. The wind's 120 knots to the west. Look at that thing, dude!" the first person says. "It's rotating!"

    In the other 2015 video, an object is shown from above speeding over the ocean, prompting the pilot to excitedly remark, "What the f--k is that?"

    Five Navy pilots who spotted the objects in 2015 told The Times in 2017 that they had a series of interactions with unidentified aircraft during training missions in 2014 and 2015 along the East Coast from Virginia to Florida. The episodes prompted the Navy to clarify how pilots should report experiences with "unidentified aerial phenomena," which had been studied under a Pentagon program from 2007 to 2012.

    Gough, the Pentagon spokeswoman, said the department was formally releasing the videos to address questions about their veracity.

    "DOD is releasing the videos in order to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos," Gough said. "The aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterized as 'unidentified.'"
