  • 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:

    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

    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 glowing phenomenon appears hours after China Fireball Crash

    Bizarre footage has emerged of a pink glowing object suspending in the dark sky just hours after a huge fireball fell from space.

    The clip, which went viral on social media in China, left witnesses baffled when they saw it on the highway in the city of Delingha of Qinghai province across the Tibetan Plateau on December 23.

    In the video, the bright pink-hue UFO appears to be stationary as the motorist drives on the deserted highway.

    The object seems to be glowing around a sphere and it can be seen from various angles in the nearby area.

    Many viewers said it resembled a moon but some said the light gathered like a cloud formation.

    One said: "Isn't there an alien base in Delingha? Maybe they are returning to the base?"

    "What is this?" another asked. "This is close to that famous 'alien ruins'!"

    A woman told a local newspaper: "This is not a moon, it's more like a cloud, a glowing pink one.

    "It stayed for 35 minutes to 40 minutes and disappeared."

    This incident came just 12 hours after a mass sighting of a glowing meteor plunging towards the city of Yushu, somewhere 700km south of Delingha.

    The fireball was seen emitting a bright white light while passing above the towns.

    It was also recorded by the China Earthquake Networks Center, which said on social media that it had reports of a suspected bolide - a form of a very bright meteor - landing between Nangqian County and Yushu County at 7.25am on Wednesday, December 23.

    There are speculations that the glowing pink light could be emitted from the bolide but experts have yet to identify it.

  • 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.

    " width="269" height="476" style="border:none;overflow:hidden" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true" allowFullScreen="true"></iframe>{/source}

    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.

    " frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>{/source}

    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.

  • Mysterious Object in Louisiana Sky Goes Viral

    In recent times, the US Department of Defense as well as former president Barack Obama hinted at the existence of extra-terrestrial beings. While the Pentagon shared clippings of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) as captured by their systems, Obama said there were things about aliens that he could not reveal on television.

    A mysterious object was captured on camera, floating and toppling around in the sky above the US state of Louisiana earlier this week.

    A video of this white cloud-like object was shared by James McDaniel, a host and producer associated with the Discovery networks on Twitter as well as Instagram.

    ​​In May this year, Obama told TV host James Corden during an interview that "there's footage and records of objects in the skies, that we don't know exactly what they are".

    Amid other comments which claimed that the footage could be doctored, McDaniel tweeted that the video was not photo-shopped.

    "We can't explain how they moved, their trajectory. They did not have an easily explainable pattern. And so, you know, I think that people still take seriously trying to investigate and figure out what that is," the former US President had said.

  • Mystery in sky near Asda before meteor crash, more witnesses to phenomenon

    UK METEOR UPDATE;Gloucestershire, England, March 7, 2021

    Newly released images taken in Scotland and Bedfordshire confirm that something unusual happened in the sky over England one hour prior to the

    on Feb 28, 2021.

    The striking image at the top of this article was taken in The Reddings, Cheltenham, at around 8.43pm on Sunday.

    This was about an hour and a quarter before the fireball meteorwas seen and heard in the county.

    The strange formation was photographed by James Parfitt who said: "There I was just putting the rubbish in the bin, looked up and saw this amazing phenomenon.

    “At first I thought it was an unusual cloud, but noticed the rest of the sky was completely clear.

    “It looked very strange."

    Even though the photograph was taken around 75 minutes before the meteor, James said there were similarities.

    He said: “If you look at other photos from past meteor showers it looks identical, so perhaps there were more earlier?

    “It’s too much of a coincidence to not be related.”

    The picture was taken in his garden, looking east towards the Asda supermarket, Cheltenham and ultimately the Cotswolds where the later meteor is thought to have landed.

    Many were disturbed by what was described as a ‘sonic boom’ as the meteor entered the Earth’s atmosphere - including people living in Bishop's Cleeve.

    The meteor is understood to have landed somewhere between Swindon Village and Bourton-on-the-Hill, according to the network.

    Since this article was originally published, we have been contacted by people from Gloucestershire, England and Scotland.

    There have been sightings of similar formations in Highleadon, near Newent, and in Glenrothes, Fife, and you can see these images above.

    There has also been interest in the apparitions across in the United States, with the Montana Sky Watcher group linking to our story, with comments showing other sky phenomenon.

    While the image above was sent to us by Simon J Fletcher, who took it at 9.06pm on Sunday in Hatherley looking towards Dean Close School.

    He said: "The same blue shape appears as in the photo taken by James Parfitt 20 minutes or so earlier than mine."

    We have also heard from another person mystified by odd apparitions in the sky.

    Jade Casey, who lives in Hockliffe, Bedfordshire, noticed what she described as an unusual ‘cloud’ cutting across the sky, right in front of the moon's glare as she drove home.

    She said: "I kept looking at it throughout the 10 minute journey home.

    "First of all I thought it might be a long lasting condensation trail but I soon dismissed this idea because for one it was 9pm and I’ve never seen one so late into the evening and two the colouration of the trail had a grey/black ting to it and the width of the trail was larger than anything I’d seen before.

    It was very prominent and stood out against the darkness of the night sky.

    "Anyway when I got home I took a couple of photos and a video of this strange trail. The quality is not the best due to the motion setting being on my camera. The trail looked like it went on for miles.

    "My husband did say to me today check the photo time stamp as it might of been the trail of the meteor but I dismissed it because obviously it was a day before. "

  • Three moons moving in unison spark ufo frenzy

    A bizarre video recorded by a witness has sent conspiracy theorists into a frenzy after three glowing orbs spotted moving in the sky.

    Madison van't Zelfde, from Antwerp, Belgium, described the orbs the size of "giant moons" when it appeared outside her home in the neighbourhood of Schipperskwartier at around 7am on Wednesday, December 16.

    The footage captures three bright orbs moving in a linear motion and a diagonal angle above buildings at dawn.

    As the clip goes on, the mysterious white glowing hue lights up the surrounding area like spotlights.

    The video ends when they move towards the left and disappear behind a building shortly.

    Madison wrote: "The three orbs stayed in the same position in the sky (they almost looked like giant moons) for a short period of time, before moving, disappearing, and never returning.

    {source}<iframe width="560" height="315" src="/

    " frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    "Note that the small lights in the upper right corner were a reflection of some Christmas lights that I have hanging up in my flat – those weren't part of it."

    She added that the sun was not up at the time of filming.

    The truth-seeker posted to Reddit asking for viewers' opinion and to her surprise, some shared a very similar experience in the comments.

    One said: "This is almost exactly like something me, my two brothers and my mother seen outside her back window over 11 years ago.

    "There were eight to nine glowing orbs slowly gliding through the sky with no ascent or descent and these orbs weren't blinding."

    Another wrote: "This is wild! Almost looks like three suns moving across the sky."

    But many more suggested it could be lights from a nearby tower crane.

    Madison replied that she had checked the nearby area and found no large crane.

    She explained: "This was definitely one of my first guesses, but I did notice some differences, such as the orbs being quite big, and the fact that they completely disappeared after less than a minute.

    "I scouted out my entire area, including the site where I saw it happening, and found zero cranes in the vicinity that could explain it."
