ANOMALY: Mysterious Metal "Space Balls" Crash Down Out Of The Sky Onto Vietnam - Causing Turmoil Among Local Residents; Defense Ministry Launches Probe?! [PHOTOS + VIDEO]



January 18, 2016 -  VIETNAM - Vietnamese authorities are puzzling over three metal spheres that allegedly came from space and landed on the territory of the country, causing turmoil among local residents. 

Vietnam’s defense ministry launched a probe into the appearance of the unidentified metal balls in the country’s north, AFP reported.

Lieutenant General Vo Van Tuan, an army spokesman, said that two objects were spotted in the northwestern province of Yen Bai on January 2, while the third one was detected later in neighboring Tuyen Quang province.

The balls, which weigh a half-pound, 13 pounds, and roughly a hundred pounds respectively, were all found in different locations. The smallest one crashed on a roof, not harming anyone, while the two others fell near a stream and in a maize field, according to media reports.

​ The occurrence has scared local residents, who claimed the sound of the falling balls reminded them of a thunder, according to media reports.Tuan said that the objects apparently came from the sky, underscoring that they cannot be referred to as state military arms.

"Before and after these objects were discovered, the Vietnamese army was not conducting any military activity in the region," Tuan said.

Initial assessments by investigators revealed that the spheres were "specialized compressed air tanks," allegedly from a missile or a spaceship, according to the CBC.

BBC reported that the balls were originally crafted in Russia, but could have been used by other states.

Nguyen Khoa Son, an expert working on the Vietnamese space program, suggested in an interview with local media that the balls may have landed on the country’s soil as a result of a failed satellite launch. Taking into account the intactness of the objects, he pointed out, it can be concluded that they may have fallen from an altitude of less than 62 miles.

According to Uproxx, no satellite launches were conducted at the time when the balls fell.

Vietnam’s military has promised to make public the results of the investigation into the incident.

NON-CONTACT: Aliens Are Not The Source Of Mysterious 'Wow!' Signal - Says Astronomer, Who Claims It Came From Two Comets?!

Although many believe the "Wow!" signal is evidence of an alien transmission, Paris' new hypothesis claims otherwise. (Photo : Twitter/red_pill_junkie)

January 18, 2016 -  SPACE - Back in 1977, astronomers from the Ohio State University picked up a powerful signal originating from space using their Big Ear radio telescope that some called our first encounter with an alien broadcast, according to New Scientist.

Dubbed the "Wow!" signal, it was discovered by focusing on a portion of the radio spectrum that closely resembles hydrogen, according to Gizmodo. However, a new study is putting that spectacular theory to rest, asserting that the signal stemmed from a pair of comets passing the Earth, according to Antonio Paris, an astronomer from St. Petersburg College.

Paris claims the signal was likely produced by one or two passing comets known as 266P/Christensen and P/2008 Y2. Paris says that comets are known to release large amounts of hydrogen when making their way past the sun and as these comets flew through the solar system, ultraviolet rays likely disturbed their surface and lead to the release of a hydrogen cloud that extended for miles.

Not everyone agrees with Paris, though. James Bauer of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory claims he is unsure whether the emissions from a comet's hydrogen clouds would have been strong enough to create the mysterious Wow! Signal, according to the Daily Mail.

"If comets were radio-bright at 21 centimetres, I would be puzzled as to why they aren't observed more often at those wavelengths," he said.

Paris' hypothesis will be put to the test when the 266P/Christensen comet passes through the same area of space in January of 2017 and P/2008 Y2 makes its way through our orbit in January of 2018.

"The hypothesis must be tested before it is ruled out," he said.

The study will appear in the Journal of the Washington Academy of Sciences and the preprint can be viewed here.

UFO SIGHTINGS: "We Were Gobsmacked" - Fast-Moving UFO Over Darwin, Australia Baffles Astrophotographers?!

Paul and Sylvia Mayo / YouTube

January 18, 2016 -  DARWIN, AUSTRALIA -  Paul and Sylvia Mayo were leaving a gas station in Darwin, the capital city of Australia's Northern Territory, in the early morning hours of June 12, 2015, when their car dash cam caught something streaking through the air.


"My wife and I both saw the object shoot across the sky, and the next day we looked at the video footage from our dash cam to see if it had recorded the object and were delighted to see that it had," Paul Mayo told The Huffington Post in an email.

"We were puzzled at the time to explain what it was, but being the busy people we are, put it aside and didn't think that much more about it, particularly since we're both UFO skeptics."

Mayo explained how, six months later, he watched the video footage again, still puzzled by it all.

"Being lifelong amateur astronomers and astrophotographers, we know what a shooting star looks like, what an aircraft looks like

, how fast an aircraft moves, what a satellite looks like, what the International Space Station looks like, but the object on our footage didn't fit any of these airborne objects."

Mayo decided to take a screen grab from their video, zooming in on the image and increasing the contrast.

"We sat there gobsmacked, looking at this image of what looked like a string of colored pearls."

Here's the original video taken by the Mayos' dash cam:

The Mayos are quite familiar with things in the night sky. They are professional, award-winning astro-photographers who take deep space photographs of galaxies, star clusters and many other wonders of the universe in the remarkably clear skies of the Australian Outback.

Despite their extensive collaborative background developing astronomy software and teaching Information Technology, they're still baffled by the object they accidentally videotaped in the Northern Territory.

"Over the past 30 years, we've looked at so many photographs, we can normally identify anything unusual in a photograph at a glance," Paul Mayo wrote on their website. "As astronomers, we have always been skeptical about UFOs, but the object that appears in this video is something we can't explain."

The red circle in the following image shows where Darwin is located in Australia.

"We're still at a loss to explain what our dash cam captured," Mayo told HuffPost. "We've asked the wider community to offer explanations, though we don't seem to have had any credible feedback explaining what it is."

According to Yahoo! News, "theories to explain the phenomenon included that it could be a windscreen reflection. However, this was rejected on the grounds that the unidentified object was moving too fast."

Another point about the reflection theory is that, if you look at side-by-side images of the streaking object, it appears to pass behind a pole (in the picture below). Would a reflection do that?

"That thing in the video is going along the tree tops in a straight line," Mayo told NT News, which has covered Australia's Northern Territory news for over 60 years.

-  The following constitutes several of the latest reports of UFO sightings, courtesy of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).

California witness videotapes hovering orb UFO

California witness at San Diego County reported watching “three strange lights” hovering in the sky and videotaped one of them, according to testimony in Case 73529 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

“I pulled over in a parking lot to stop and observe and take photos,” the witness stated.“As I was watching the three craft hovering, two of them started moving straight up and away from me – their lights getting smaller and smaller as they flew out of my sight.”

One of the three objects stayed behind.

“The third stayed where it was except for moving erratically from side-to-side. After around five minutes it took off in the same direction as the other two and quickly shot straight up overhead in the same direction as the others.” The witness uploaded two video clips with the MUFON report, which was filed on January 1, 2016. California Field Investigator Jason Sieckman is investigating.


Triangle UFO hovered 50 feet over Kansas City band members

A Kansas witness at Kansas City recalled a UFO incident from 1978 where he and two fellow band members had a close encounter with an object just 50 feet overhead, according to testimony in Case 73425 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was in a show band in April 1978 that traveled the Midwest and the three were rehearsing a new act at the singer’s parent’s farm just outside Kansas City, KS.

“The guitar player, keyboard player and myself went outside for a smoke break at around 8p.m. when we noticed a bright light off in the eastern sky,” the witness stated.“As we watched, it grew larger and we realized it was coming directly at us.”

When the object arrived directly overhead, the group could clearly see that it was a craft, triangular or delta-wing shaped – hovering silently about 50 feet above them.

“There were two globes hanging from the craft, one from each ‘wing’ if you will. One of the globes was a bright, white light and the other was dark.”

While they watched it hover silently, the guitar player went inside to get his camera and just as he was coming back outside, the craft darted off at an incredible speed toward the north toward Kansas City.

“We continued to watch it and saw that there was an electrical storm that it was headed into. As it drew close to that storm, the other globe under the craft started to glow evenly with the other globe. It entered the storm and disappeared. We concluded among ourselves that the craft must be powered by some sort of electric/magnetic power that it can replenish from our electric storms.”

The witness recently met up again with the other two witnesses to discuss their sighting from 1978.

“The following morning we were packing the equipment into the van when we heard a deafening roar. We looked north toward Kansas City and saw a passenger jet taking off and rising to cruising altitude. Now this was miles away to the north. just about as far as the storm was the night before, and the sound of that plane taking off was deafening. It just heightened the stark silence of the craft from the night before.”

The witness was walking to his car about 6:30 p.m. on May 26, 2014, when the object was first noticed and thought to be an airliner.

“It was moving from west to east at high altitude and at a comparable speed to an airliner in my estimation,” the witness stated.“As I looked closer, I noticed the object did not appear to have wings.”

The witness then began taking photos and videos of the object with his phone.

“After the object was far enough away so as not to be visible, I got in my car and cropped the photos down to get a closer look. It was then that I was pretty sure that what I had just saw was no conventional aircraft. It appeared to have no wings or tailwing. It also appeared to be rectangular in shape, with a perfectly squared front and back. Did not look at all aerodynamic in the pictures. I shared the video and pictures with a friend who is a UPS pilot, and while he cannot completely rule out the possibility it was an airplane, he is equally puzzled by the rectangular shape and lack of visible wings.”

Sellersburg is a town located within Silver Creek Township, Clark County, Indiana, population 6,128. Indiana MUFON Field Investigator Patrick O’Brien closed the case as an Unknown. The case was reported to MUFON on May 26, 2014.

“The object could have been military,” O’Brien stated in his report,“but no jet aircraft at the local Air Guard Base, only C-130 aircraft.It is highly unlikely this would have been a military flight as described. It is in more keeping with other similar reports that have been received in the state.”



Low flying UFO floods Ohio street with light

An Ohio witness at Cincinnati recalled a UFO incident from 1998 shared with a grandmother involving a low, hovering square-shaped object, according to testimony in Case 73754 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness entered her home after work about 9 p.m. on May 9, 1998, and walked to a bedroom to change clothes.

“My grandmother was still up at that time and she had asked me if the pony keg store was still open that was right across the street from our house,” the witness stated.“I looked out the front window to see if there were any lights on in the store and they were closed. I asked her what she needed and she said that she wanted a couple of root beers to make root beer floats.”

Just outside the store was a soda machine, so the witness gathered change and walked over to the front of the machine and began to drop quarters in.

“The street lights started to blink off and on radically. And so did the machine. And when I looked to the east of these apartment buildings tucked in behind houses I saw something just hovering over them. I knew right away that nothing that big can’t make a sound.”

The witness had an instinct to run away, but the area began to light up.

“And as soon as I wanted to jolt back across the street to get my grandmother this huge blueish-white spot light lit me up and everything around me. I could even see the colors of all the flowers in my grandmother’s yard just about 25 steps away from her front door.”


With a population over 200,000, the witness said there was no one else on the busy street that night during the encounter. Pictured: Downtown Cincinnati. (Credit: Wikimedia Commons)

The witness at this point could not move and the lights were coming closer.

“The only thing that I could say is,‘I know what you are and who you are and tonight I am not going to see you guys by myself!!’ As the beam of bluish-white light continued to light me up, I remember that there was not one car in sight off this really busy road. Nobody was out walking their dogs – nobody.”

Then it got really quiet around the witness.

“My senses shifted to such a whisper of nothingness that it’s hard to describe. As soon as this beam of light was taken off me,I ran across the street and bolted inside screaming and crying.”

The first thing the grandmother asked was, “Where have you been?”

“I looked at the clock from the kitchen wall and the time was 10:15. I took hold of her hand and asked her to please come see this thing. And we did. By the time out feet hit the front lawn, there it was, right above her house. The roof was lit up as well, but not beamed. The lights turned violet this time. We stood there in awe and disbelief watching this UFO. It was massive. Rectangular in shape. It had no color really, so I guess it was black.”

The object then began slowly moving southwest over another major busy street and floated away.

“We felt like we were in a dream state of somekind – just such a floated feeling inside. And then we sat down on the couch together and the television just came on by itself and made grandma jump.”
Cincinnati is a city in and the county seat of Hamilton County, OH, population 296,945.

No images or videos were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on January 9, 2016. MUFON Ohio Field Investigator Jon P. Fry is investigating.
