Unexplained Phenomena

Via Huffington Post UK, introducing the Horrifying Black Ring of Leamington Spa:

Dubbed the Black Ring of Leamington Spa, the strange phenomenon was captured by Georgina Heap, 16, on her iPhone on Friday evening near Warwick Castle. Fire services have said no fires were reported at the time and the Met Office have said it does not appear to be weather-related.

Heap said it was “The weirdest thing I have ever seen. It was just floating there like a cloud and then it disappeared. It wasn’t birds either. There were about ten of us who stopped what we were doing and watched.”

UFO expert, Nick Pope, described the video as “truly bizarre” and added, “One other possibility is that the shape is made up of millions of bees or other insects, but I’ve never heard of insects behaving in this way before, so if this is the explanation, it’s a real-life X-File.”

Mississippi UFOThis is why I would not be able to handle living in the country. Via South Mississippi’s WLOX:

They were caught on camera the night of February 16. Mysterious lights that appeared in the sky over the 150 acres that Rainer and Edith Shattles call home in the Cumbest Bluff area of Jackson County. Were they a phenomenon that’s simple to explain, or something else?

The timeline of the pictures is clear. At 7:24pm, deer appear and all is normal. At 7:29, a dim light appears. At 7:35, it gets brighter. Then at 7:53, a weird shape appears on the camera. The deer are lit up brightly, but how? The cameras are infrared and don’t emit light. At 7:56, another sharper light appears, then it gets much closer, seemingly focused on the deer. It looks like headlights, but well off the ground and there is no road. It then flies away.

Via OpenMinds.tv:

Wu Xiaodong Yi, a former cable TV reporter for TVB in Hong Kong, believes he caught video of a UFO near his home in Hong Kong.

Yi first spotted the UFO on the evening of October 5, but was only able to take a low quality cell phone photograph of it.

In hopes that the UFO would return, the next night Yi was prepared with a video camera to record the object. The object did return, and he was able to get a few minutes of video before the object disappeared.

Yi says the object could be seen for about 10 to 20 minutes before disappearing. The video shows a bright point of light over some city buildings.
