Unexplained “Phoenix Lights” explosion caught live on news broadcast

Phoenix’s FOX 10 reporter Andrea Robinson was in the middle of an on-air report when an unexplained, bright white explosion appeared in the distance behind her.

The strange blast was caught on tape and aired live during Robinson’s report. At first, news station employees thought the explosion was a transformer. But when FOX 10 checked with local utility providers APS and Salt River Project, they were told no transformers had blown in the area.

While the source of the explosion remains a mystery, it comes just before the 15th anniversary of one of the most-famous UFO sightings in recent history. On March 13, 1997, a cluster of glowing orbs moving in a V-shaped formation was spotted in the skies above Phoenix. That incident was also caught on film. The origin of the light formation has since been endlessly analyzed and debated.

Arizona is also home to Travis Walton, who famously claimed to have been abducted by a UFO in 1975. Walton has written a number of books on the subject, and his story was turned into the 1993 film “Fire in the Sky.”

And while Phoenix officials remain stumped by the strange light explosion, FOX 10 has reached out to the public asking for assistance in explaining exactly what was caught on film.

New Type of Alien Planet Is a Steamy ‘Waterworld’

Scientists have discovered a new type of alien planet — a steamy waterworld that is larger than Earth but smaller than Uranus.

The standard-bearer for this new class of exoplanet is called GJ 1214b, which astronomers first discovered in December 2009. New observations by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope suggest that GJ 1214b is a watery world enshrouded by a thick, steamy atmosphere.

“GJ 1214b is like no planet we know of,” study lead author Zachory Berta of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Mass., said in a statement. “A huge fraction of its mass is made up of water.”

Adding to the diversity

To date, astronomers have discovered more than 700 planets beyond our solar system, with about 2,300 more “candidates” awaiting confirmation by follow-up observations.

These alien planets are a diverse bunch. Astronomers have found one planet as light and airy as Styrofoam, for example, and another as dense as iron. They’ve discovered several alien worlds that orbit two suns, like Luke Skywalker’s home planet of Tatooine in the “Star Wars” films.

But GJ 1214b, which is located 40 light-years from Earth in the constellation Ophiuchus (The Serpent Bearer), is something new altogether, researchers said.

Multiple UFOs Reported over El Paso, Texas

El Paso, Texas – 02-02-12

Shape: Circle – Duration: 2 hours

Strange circular aircraft in the sky

My husband and I were watching the air traffic from our courtyard at our home here in El Paso.

We see all sorts of aircraft from airliners, jets, drones, bi-planes and helicopters.

But then we saw what looked like a white ball gradually cruising along at the same altitude west towards New Mexico, my husband ran and got our camera and managed to zoom in on this object.

This first object was pretty low and upon zooming in on it, we realized it was a ball of light with what looked two metallic objects on it; one on top and bottom almost appearing disk shaped.

Then after a while it seemed to disappear and reappear in the sky as it got further away.

Shortly after that we came back outside and noticed four more of the very same objects flying around each other in zigzag patterns; it was very unnatural to me and I’ve never seen anything like these things.

These four seemed to be much higher and farther away. We focused on as many as we could with our camera at that moment, but they were very hard to focus on.

When those seemed to disappear in the sky, a few friends stopped by and as we were showing them what we caught on camera, another appeared in the sky going the same direction as the first.

We caught video of that one too.

The air traffic was very busy that day, but this was nothing I have ever seen before. There were no clouds in the sky except the chemtrail from the passing jets we get from Fort Bliss.

These odd objects in the sky did not make any sound and seemed to fly in a most unusual pattern; my close-ups reveal that this is not a plane of any sort.

It’s Official: Stonehenge Stones Were Moved 160 Miles

Some of the volcanic bluestones in the inner ring of Stonehenge officially match an outcrop in Wales that’s 160 miles (257 kilometers) from the world-famous site, geologists announced this week.

The discovery leaves two big ideas standing about how the massive pieces of the monument arrived at Salisbury Plain: entirely by human hand, or partly by glacier.

As it looks today, 5,000-year-old Stonehenge has an outer ring of 20- to 30-ton sandstone blocks and an inner ring and horseshoe of 3- to 5-ton volcanic bluestone blocks.

The monument’s larger outer blocks, called the Sarsen stones, were likely quarried some 20 to 30 miles (32 to 48 kilometers) away in what’s now England, where sandstone is a common material.

The origin of the bluestones, however, has weighed heavy on the hearts of archaeologists. Rocks resembling the material under a microscope haven’t been found anywhere relatively near Stonehenge—at least until now.

Pinpointing the stones’ origins is crucial to understanding how so many heavy hunks of rock made their way to the open plain where Stonehenge now stands.

“There’s no way of explaining how these stones were transported without knowing where they came from,” said study co-author Robert Ixer of the University of Leicester in the U.K.

UFO chased by the Police in Mexicali, BC, Mexico Jan 23 2012

A UFO caused a severe mobilization by elements of the Municipal Public Security Forces of Mexicali due to reports of citizens about the presence of a strange device in the air. Even C-4 operators, which handle urban security cameras, saw it through the system and apparently was recorded, also received hundreds of calls to 066 warning of the flying object.

Mexican Police Engage in UFO Chase

By Juan Galvan – Mexicali, Baja California

“A UFO with white lights, blue and yellow flashes” — The first report was received from the airport area, and [the object] was even seen by C-4 operators manning the safety cameras that appear to have recorded it. The sighting prompted the mobilization of police officials. Martin Ruelas, supervisor of the western sector, was able to see it with his own eyes, but it was too fast and it was impossible to follow.

An Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) prompted an intense mobilization by elements of the Public Safety Forces of the City of Mexicali, arising from citizen reports about the presence of a strange device in the air.

Alejandro Monreal Noriega, general commander of Patrols in the Dirección de Seguridad Pública Municipal (DSPM) reported that the first news item was received from people living in the vicinity of the airport.

Even C-4 operators, responsible for urban security cameras, saw the object in their systems and it appears to have been recorded. Furthermore, hundreds of phone calls were received at the “066” number, reporting the flying object’s presence.

It was seen around the airport and subsequently flying at dizzying speeds toward the new guard post after citizens reported seeing it over the Marán Industrial Park, and subsequently in the Rivera Campestre district and related areas.

Martin Ruelas, supervisor of the DSPM’s western region, saw it and stated that it was a sizeable round white object with visible blue and yellow flashes. He added that the object was seen high in the sky and moved up, down and sideways at very high speeds, vanishing from sight after heading south from the valley of Mexicali.

Deputy Commander Medina, from the valley’s southern area, also saw it and said it was too fast and impossible to follow, as it changed direction suddenly.

A “chase” by patrolmen ensued, but since the object changed position within seconds, they simply relayed its location in order to have the nearest unit continue the report. Unfortunately, it was impossible to obtain an answer.

Monreal Noriega stated that consultations were made with airport authorities and SEDENA, as well as their U.S. counterparts, and they awaited more information on the subject.

Disc-shaped UFO Chased by Jet over San Antonio, Texas

San Antonio, Texas – 01-11-12

Shape: Disk – Duration: 8 minutes

Disk-shaped object seen in broad daylight, pursued by jet.

I witnessed a white/silver, disc-shaped object, seen briefly. I was at the corner of Callaghan and Evers heading towards Bandera Road, when the object caught my eye.

It was heading south towards Lackland AFB, at what appeared to be a slow rate of speed, and positioned in the air at about 140 degrees relative to my position.

Suddenly I lost sight of it, but seconds later a high altitude aircraft traveling at a high rate of speed approached the area where I had last seen the object.

The intercepting craft appeared to be coming from the direction of Lackland AFB.

Minutes later as I was arriving at my destination, I witnessed the same fast traveling aircraft returning back in the direction of the base. Visual contact with the unknown object lasted mere seconds, but the whole event took place over a period of 8 minutes or so.
