Strange Light Phenomena In The Skies Over New Zealand

According to latest news from New Zealand, people have been witnessing strange unexplained lights in the skies on several occasions this week.

For the moment the lights remain of unknown origin.

The mystery lights were visible on Monday or Tuesday night on October 29 or 30. The sightings took place Challenge petrol station on Malfroy Rd and there  were at least four witnesses who state that five glowing orbs were moving slowly across the road toward Sunset Rd for about 30 seconds before they disappeared  behind trees.

The New Zealand Herald reports that “A Challenge petrol station employee, who only wanted to be known as Michelle, said she and at least three others watched  the orbs, which appeared about 8pm just before dark.

“A customer came in and asked ‘can you see that?’, we were all wondering what was going on.

“They were all perfectly round with a larger orange-coloured orb leading about four smaller orbs all in a line about the same distance apart.  They were moving on an angle before they disappeared behind some trees.”

Michelle said the glowing orbs were in the sky about 200m to 300m away from the service station forecourt and they watched them for about 30 seconds.

“There’s no way they were lights from a plane, they were too big and were not flashing. Our first thought was it was something military but there was no noise and they were just floating there.

“We were all a bit freaked out but we weren’t imagining things. I’m not one to sensationalise things … I was reading the paper every day to see if anyone else had seen them.”

Michelle said they all knew they had seen something strange but she had not talked about it since.

“People might think I’m a bit mad, but I was in the air force and I know what an aeroplane looks like,” she said.

In another recent sighting, a Lake Tarawera resident who wished to remain anonymous, said he photographed a bright orange orb as it slowly moved across the  lake about two months ago.

The man, who lives on Spenser Rd, said he and his wife watched a colourful floating orb for about five minutes before it floated off to the right of Rainbow  Mountain heading toward Tauranga.

“We saw it heading from roughly a southern position heading north low in the sky. It appeared to be a rotating ball with varying colours.  It was not along any flights paths that I see airplanes on either.

“It continued going north at a steady, relatively slow speed, so I had time to get out the camera but unfortunately the picture isn’t that great.”

The man said he was left with a strange feeling he had seen something out of the ordinary.

During a number of separate sightings this month a rural Rotorua resident filmed what he described as a “blinking ufo object and big bright  sphere object” as well as a “bright light ufo, strange skies ufo and fireballs”.

The man uploaded his films to the video sharing website YouTube identifying himself as horsefarmer1000.

In one of the videos there is also an obvious meteor shower at the end and satellites in the sky. But, there are some floating, flashing lights  in the videos which do not look like an aeroplane or helicopter.

One of the videos has had more than 3280 views with the filming taking place on November 4 and November 8.

Horsefarmer1000 declined to be interviewed by The Daily Post but links to his films were sent to New Zealand UFO investigation organisation Ufocus NZ.

Ufocus director Suzanne Hansen said she had watched the videos but said without speaking to the person it was difficult to say what was going on.

“I did not see anything that could not be explained in conventional terms.

“If people believe they have captured a UFO on film, we are able to send it to the United States for photographic data analysis with either a  physicist and optical data analyst, or a retired Nasa scientist, who assist Ufocus NZ in our work.

“We think this is a more credible way of ascertaining its veracity than posting it on YouTube.”

However, Ms Hansen said the organisation had received some very detailed sighting reports in the Rotorua/Tauranga/Kaimai area in the past year.

“In December 2011 we received a report from a small group of witnesses who observed an object, which was not an aircraft, which came to within  15m of their position and “followed” them for a couple of kilometres.

“In March of this year, we received a report from a scientist who had a similar experience at a Northland beach and who provided an identical  description to that given by the December 2011 witnesses.

She said in June, a person onboard an aircraft approaching Tauranga from Rotorua saw a silver/white disc-shaped object at a low altitude above  the treetops and in July a retired commercial pilot saw a large silver spherical object accompanied by two white/silver V shaped objects over Tauranga Harbour.

Ms Hansen said there had been numerous reports in the Bay of Plenty and throughout the country, of very large orange balls of light.

“It is interesting to note that when the December 2011 witnesses first sighted an anomalous light, it was a large orange orb. As it came closer  they were able to see the object within this orange glow.

“At close proximity the object had “switched off” the glow and the witnesses were able to see considerable detail.”

Ms Hansen said the organisation had received more UFO sighting reports this year than in any other year.

UFO Lands On A Mountain In Trinidad And Filmed By Witnesses

On the evening of January 14, 2019, Ms. Dorothy Romero, who lives in the city of Trinidad, Colorado (United States), witnessed with her husband the landing of an unidentified flying object on the historic Simpson’s Rest mountain. Then the video sent by the witness claiming UFO Lands On A Mountain In Trinidad.

«My husband was outside to wash our porch when he saw a UFO flying directly over our house … At first I didn’t believe him and I thought it was just flashes and lightning. However, my husband insisted and claimed that the object had landed at Simpson’s Rest, on the mountain directly behind our house. When he landed, he produced sparks that seemed to come out of the bottom of this mysterious object, ”Dorothy related.

«I had my phone in my hand and started recording what was happening. I regret that the quality of the video is not the best, but you can see very well the bright UFO behind the roof of our house, which later disappeared without a trace, as if it had vanished.

To clear up any confusion, it should be noted that the UFO in question is spherical and can be seen somewhat below the luminous sign of the city of Trinidad (as specified by the witness in English in the video).

The mountain where the UFO would have landed owes its name to George S. Simpson, a famous explorer, merchant and pioneer who settled in what is now the city of Trinidad in 1848. History tells us that the explorer survived an attack by the Ute natives when hiding in a recess of the mountain for three days. When he died years later, he asked to be buried in that place.

The landscape from Simpson’s Rest is amazing, from there you can see the entire city of Trinidad, the Purgatory River and its valley. Would the UFO be there for this view?

Video: Elon Musk’s SpaceX satellite camera captures UFO around it!

US billionaire SpaceX’s Amos 17 satellite camera Elon Musk recorded an unidentified flying object approaching the spacecraft and then disappearing.

The ‘thirdphaseofmoon’ channel on YouTube specializing in genre revelations has uploaded a video featuring an unidentified flying object (UFO) allegedly approaching the SpaceX Amos 17 satellite.

The strange object resembles a light sphere and appears to be moving rapidly in front of Elon Musk’s satellite camera and eventually, turning left, disappears.

Blake and Brett Causins, who runs the YouTube channel, claim that UFOs could not be a space debris because of the orbit that followed.

“How could he turn left in space unless he had a propulsion system,” Blake emphasized, pointing out that many internet users estimate that the UFO was “tracking the satellite”.

“The whole idea that these are just space debris is not valid. If it were, you should see it follow a straight path. But he is carrying out this strange maneuver that defies all logic, “said Blake Causins.

Could light and noise from Earth attract aliens?

Since the first use of electric lamps in the 19th century, society hasn’t looked back. Homes and streets are lit at all hours so that people can go about their business when they’d once have been asleep. Besides the obvious benefits to societies and the economy, there’s growing awareness of the negative impact of artificial light.

Light pollution has been blamed for wasting energy, disrupting wildlife behaviour and harming mental health. One aspect has avoided the spotlight though. Namely, that light not only allows one to see, but also to be seen. This could well attract unwelcome attention – and not just from moths.

The innate curiosity of humans and our growing knowledge of the universe in which we live have led us inexorably to a question. Do civilisations exist on planets other than Earth? Scientists now believe that there are many places in the universe which might harbour simple lifeforms such as bacteria.

What is more speculative is the notion that such extraterrestrial life could have become technologically advanced, perhaps even well beyond our capacity. This idea has captured the imagination of the general public, giving birth to a rich collection of science fiction literature and blockbuster films. But it has also received serious attention from scientists, who have thought of ways to find and possibly contact these alien species.

In 1974, radio astronomer Frank Drake used the then most powerful radio transmitter, at Arecibo in Puerto Rico, to broadcast a message into space announcing our presence. The message will now be 45 light years away from us. While there are many stars and planets closer to us than that, they won’t have been in the path of Drake’s broadcast.

But impatient as scientists tend to be, more effort has gone into searching space for such signals transmitted by extraterrestrial civilisations. As more and more planets are discovered around other stars, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence – often abbreviated to SETI – is becoming more relevant, better informed and better resourced. In 2015, wealthy entrepreneurs Yuri and Julia Milner allocated US$100m to the Breakthrough Listen SETI project, which buys time at observatories to use their powerful telescopes to detect artificial signals from outer space.

But despite the vastness and emptiness of space, scientists have started to wonder why we haven’t heard from aliens yet. This puzzle is known as the Fermi Paradox, named after the physicist Enrico Fermi. Among the many solutions proposed for this problem, one really brings us down to Earth: aliens might be scared of other aliens.

Is anyone listening?

While tempting, many scientists now agree that sending messages into space without knowing who might be intercepting them might not be such a good idea. Once sent, it cannot be undone. Unlike a post on social media, it cannot be removed. Listening is much safer. But radio communication among ourselves – which includes navigation, television broadcasts and the internet – might also be detected from space.

After all, radio waves that aren’t captured continue to travel, up and away from the Earth into deep space. Unintentionally, we may already have been observed by an amused, terrified or “interested” species, who may decide to meet us to “shake hands”, or come to enslave us, eat us, or destroy us as a precaution. We are, after all, an aggressive species ourselves.

Fortunately, Earth has become a lot quieter, thanks to more directed signalling and fibre cables replacing aerial transmission. We might just get away with our past recklessness. But a new beacon is brightening.

Images of the Earth at night reveal our presence in spectacular fashion. Cities and roads outline the contours of continents, while oil platforms dot the seas and ships draw lines across the ocean. This type of light, which has replaced older, incandescent sources, is unnatural. From the orange sodium or bluish mercury lamps, to white-light emitting diodes (LEDs), the artificial origin of this “spectrum” should be easy for technologically advanced aliens to spot.

In the coming decades Earth’s space agencies may be developing the means to detect such artificial light from planets around other stars. But we may fail, if aliens believe the smartest thing to do is to keep quiet and remain in the dark. We, on the other hand, may already have been seen, and they may already be on their way. This begs the question – should we dim our lights, before it’s too late?
