Camera catches two UFOs flying around Super Moon

A Super Moon appeared the night of November 13, 2016 or officially during the wee hours of November 14, 2016.  It was the biggest, brightest and closest Full Moon to Earth since January 26, 1948.  Since this giant version of the Moon won’t happen again until 2034, many people were outside taking photos and videos of it.

The night before the Super Moon, a man known as Rondomon was videotaping it through a telescope from Arizona.  His timing was perfect because he captured two UFOs as one followed the other across the Moon’s surface.

UFO photos before Photoshop

The first version of Adobe Photoshop was released in 1988.  Since then, the validity of UFO photos always comes into question. So let’s look at some historic UFO photos before the computer mischief-makers could fabricate images. – The editor

Fleet of UFOs over Louisville, Kentucky

These sequential photos are from a 48 second video taken from Louisville, Kentucky on the night of September 19, 2016. The videographer said the fleet was traveling in a north to northeast direction and was preceded by a solitary and slightly larger UFO. CLICK HERE to see the video.





Glynis Heenan is a resident of Cashiers, NC and has been monitoring the sky for UFOs since 2008.  That was the year she saw her first UFO.  That was the year her daughter snapped a great UFO photo that inspired the start of this website.  
Since then, Glynis sees and photographs so many UFOs from her mountaintop home that we only post her more extraordinary photos. Well, this isn’t one of her extraordinary ones, perhaps because she had to use a different camera, but she does have news worth post-ing. Below is her report. – The editor

More UFOs than ever before over Cashiers

By Glynis Heenan

September 10, 2016 – The last couple of weeks, I’ve been noticing more UFOs than I’ve ever seen before.  Other people have noticed too.

On August 28, a friend of mine who lives in a remote little area between Cashiers and Highlands asked me to come over to his house and see what he was seeing in the sky.  I arrived there about dusk and when I looked toward the northeast, I saw a UFO.  At first I thought it was just a cloud formation but when it slipped into the valley between two mountains, I realized it was a ship.

Star shows Cashiers-Highlands area of North Carolina

As the sky grew darker, a pulsing light appeared, and then another, and another.  There were lights everywhere, I mean like 20 or 30 lights.  Then all of a sudden they took off in different directions.  That’s when we absolutely knew they weren’t stars.

My friend was amazed and gasped, “I’ve never seen anything like that!” As for myself, in the eight years I’ve been watching the sky, I’ve never seen that many UFOs at one time.

Amazing things sometimes show up when we zoom in and brighten UFO videos.  That’s what we did with six frames from the above YouTube video titled “Breaking News UFO Sighting North Carolina 4-12-2016.”  Below are photos of what we discovered. – The editor

Two satellite-like objects seen around Sun

EDITOR’S NOTE: We received these photos in an email from Vickie McMahan the same day she took them on June 19, 2016.  We thought they were significant because photos of the Sun more typically reveal just one satellite-like object. After Vickie’s brief statement, there are sample photos we’ve posted of this phenomenon since we became aware of it in 2009.

VICKIE: I snapped these three photos of the Sun in rapid succession about 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, June 19, 2016 from Highway 107 between Sylva and Cullowhee, North Carolina. For those who might know the area, I pulled off the highway at the new interchange bridge that’s south of Ingle’s grocery.

Odd shaped UFO hovers near Wright-Patterson AFB

On May 25, 2016, an odd-shaped UFO was seen hovering near Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. The base is known for housing crashed UFO debris and alien remains since the Roswell UFO crash in 1947.

The video was taken by a local couple who were simply watching the sunset from their home.  Two other people saw the same object above Wright-Patterson AFB according to Tyler Glockner with Secure Team 10 which is a UFO investigative group.

The “Dayton Daily News”reported on May 31, 2016 that “Wright-Patterson spokeswoman Marie Vanover said Tuesday morning after checking with the Air Force Research Laboratory there was no indication the base had ties to the object.”

UFO hovers low over North Carolina river

EDITOR’S NOTE:  We received the above photo on March 12, 2016.  It was taken from a ridge overlooking the Tuckasegee River just south of Dillsboro, North Carolina by Starlotte Deitz on November 20, 2015 at 9:44 p.m.

“It was just above the water and real, real bright – brighter than the Sun,” Starlotte explained.  “Two of my neighbors saw it too.  It was as wide as the river and it stayed there about 15 minutes and then went northwest toward Bryson City.

“About 15 minutes later, it returned and hovered in the same place over the river for a few minutes and then it left for good.

“I’ve been seeing UFOs south of town and along highway 441 for years and so have many others,” she added.

Then Starlotte began to speculate.  “The UFO was between the cellphone tower at the top of the ridge and the power lines; maybe the UFO gets energy that way.”





Look what’s POPPING out from the Sun

In 2009, we discovered that translucent blue orbs hide within the Sun’s intense light and occasionally pop out for us to see.  Then in 2012, someone caught a translucent blue disk popping out from the Sun’s central light.  Most recently, cameras have caught a translucent triangular shape rising up from the Sun plus multiple lights encircling it. – The Editor

The above photos of a translucent blue triangle popping out from the blindingly bright Sun were snapped one right after the other from Sylva, North Carolina at 10:48 a.m. on February 5, 2016 by Mary Joyce.

This second set of photos shows a translucent blue disk just after it popped from its hidding spot within the Sun’s brilliant center.  These photos were taken by Spuz Shissler in Linville Falls, NC on March 8, 2012 at 2 p.m.

i j k l
These photos reveal a translucent blue orb rapidly emerging from the Sun’s intense light.  The photos were snapped midday on June 30, 2009 from Sylva, NC by Mary Joyce.

m n
These two photos were taken midday on August 14, 2015 by Beck Horne in Fletcher, North Carolina.  They reveal multiple orbs around the Sun along with a blue object a bit further away. The photos were snapped quickly indicating the blue object instantly moved from one side of the Sun to the other.

UFOs zip over Brevard and Weaverville, NC

EDITOR’S NOTE:  On December 23, 2015, we received an 18-second video of clouds that included an image of a UFO in one frame.  The sender included a photo of that frame plus an enlargement of the object which are shown above.
My wife was videotaping clouds in Brevard, NC on November 14, 2015 and didn't even see this thing. I noticed it later. I isolated the image in the only frame it was in. At 29 frames per second, this image was only in a single frame for 1/29th of a second. The video and still photo are raw and unedited. It looks to be a metallic bean shaped object with no wings and no visible signs of propulsion. . . I have found four other very similar UFO pictures that were all taken in November 2015.  One was only 30 miles from Brevard. – J.W.

NOTE:  A few days later, J.W. sent us the following photo he found of two UFOs that appeared over Weaverville, NC on November 18, 2015. As the crow flies, Weaverville is 33 miles north of Brevard.

Morphing UFO over Cherokee, NC

We received the above photos on January 8, 2016 from Dustin Lambert of Cherokee, North Carolina. 

He explained he’d taken the two photos “a couple nights earlier” of an object in the southeastern sky that morphed in shape and size from one photo to the next.  We enlarged both photos but only the first one revealed a bit more detail. – The Editor
