Mysterious square aircraft over Charlotte, NC

The following is from an article published in The Charlotte Observer on September 3, 2018. We think it’s encouraging when a mainline newspaper publishes a UFO photo story like this one.  We’ve increased the brightness of the two photos in the article with hopes of revealing more details of the UFO. – The editor

September 3, 2018 - Another alleged UFO sighting near Charlotte has appeared on Facebook and in this case, it was posted by a husband and father who says he doesn’t necessarily believe in UFOs.

Javion Hill, 35, of Kings Mountain, North Carolina, says he took several photos of the object during a storm on the night of Aug. 18, as he drove on U.S. 74 southwest of Charlotte.

The images feature something square hovering above the tree line, with its edges fringed in lights. Hill told the Charlotte Observer the craft frightened him to the point that he didn’t sleep that night.

“I was on my way home with my wife on the speaker phone, and it looked like there was a tornado coming, so I was trying to take a picture of the clouds for my wife,” says Hill.

“But then I saw something that wasn’t normal and I was, like: ‘Oh my god, what is that?’ I started trying to take as many pictures of it as possible while I was driving.”

Hill says he pulled over at the next exit to try and get video, but the aircraft had vanished. A heavy rain followed instantly, he said.

North Carolina is in the top 10 among the 50 states when it comes to alleged UFO sightings, according to the National UFO Reporting Center in Davenport in Washington state. . .




Infrared camera reveals multiple UFOs

These infrared sky photos were taken in Salem, Indiana by Gina Maria Colvin Hill. The first two were taken on August 15, 2018 at 10:32 p.m. It is significant that these two sequential photos reveal multiple UFOs that quickly changed positions in the sky.  This movement makes it difficult to explain them away as some kind of camera lens effect. The third photo was taken in the daytime on August 17, 2018 at 10 a.m.




Could this be the 12th Planet?

EDITOR’S NOTE: We received a 50-second video on our Facebook page from Gina Maria Colvin Hill.  She took it at 8:18 a.m. (EST) on July 21, 2018 from Salem, Indiana. She simply said, “There was a break in the clouds and I was able to catch the Sun and the object next to it.”

Is it an orb, a camera effect or the 12th Planet? If you wish to watch the video and decide for yourself, copy and paste this line in your Facebook search bar:



Sequential UFO images caught on Google Maps

EDITOR’S NOTE:  The following report and photos are from Dellmos Vance who lives in Newland, North Carolina. We’d like to thank, Spuz Shissler, our sky watcher in Newland, for encouraging him to share his discovery on this website.

“About May 15, 2018, while searching for a business on U.S. Hwy. 70 west of Hickory, North Carolina, I decided to use Google Maps street view to see what the store front looked like,” Dellmos Vance explained.  “That view also encompasses a good look of the sky. There I saw a somewhat compressed image of a craft. 

“As I navigated along Hwy. 70 on Google Maps, images of the craft darted about and even appeared directly overhead.  As there was a fair amount of traffic, I wondered how it could have been missed, yet I could find no reports of anyone seeing it.  Perhaps it was not visible to the naked eye.”

Below are a few of the Google Map street view images Vance discovered.  They are in sequence from first to last.

If you’d like to see more of the images
, take the Google Map “drive” yourself. Here are the steps to find them: (1) start at Loman’s Motel, 109 US Hwy. 70 in Hildebran, NC, (2) switch to the satellite view, (3) click on the tiny human logo in the lower right corner to browse street view images, (4) click your mouse on the street in front of the motel, (5) rotate the image toward the east until you’re in the middle of the highway, (6) click on the arrow in the middle of the street and then “drive” slowly east. 




Did UFO come to see July 4th fireworks?

EDITOR’S NOTE: It’s beginning to look like our Facebook manager, Vickie McMahon, sees a UFO every time she goes on vacation. Here is her latest UFO photo which was taken on the evening of July 4, 2018.

“We were out on the pon- toon boat waiting for the fireworks on Lake Chatuge on July 4, 2018, when I saw something that looked a bit unusual,” Vickie explains.

“It was too big to be a star, so I took a photo.  Later, I zoomed in on the light and it clearly wasn’t star-shaped.” 

(L) Lake Chatuge is a large mountain lake that straddles the North Carolina-Georgia border.




Innkeeper sees UFOs over Sylva, NC for second time

This photo of Sylva, NC was taken from the library which overlooks the town’s main street.

For the second time in less than a year, Kate, the owner of the Whistle Stop Inn in Dillsboro, NC has snapped a photo of UFOs over the neighboring town of Sylva.

“It was just after dark on June 15, 2018” Kate explained, “and I was returning from picking up a few items from Food Lion. As I was driving on Main St. in Sylva, I glanced up and saw the Moon plus two other lights that were much brighter than stars.

“When I got back to the inn, I zoomed in on the lights in my photo.  Then it was clear that the two bright lights absolutely were not stars.”

Below left is an enlargement of the UFO to the left of the Moon.  On the right, is an enlargement of the UFO above the Moon.

If you visit the area, talk to Kate.  She’s knows many unique things about the North Carolina Mountains.




White pyramid found on Moon

A video of a pyramid on the Moon was sent to us by Marcelo Iranzusta, an Argentine researcher, on May 31, 2018.  His discovery was posted two days earlier on Sandra Elena Andrade’s YouTube channel.

The hilltop pyramid appears white with sharp edges and has no other outstanding features around it.  Using the coordinates provided with the video (23°57'34.27 N 4°26'36.85 E), we found the pyramid for ourselves on Google Earth so it is not the creation of a hoaxer.

CLICK HERE to see a 1:49 video showing
the pyramid from different angles.

We are fortunate whenever we find fairly clear photos of structures on the Moon because NASA artists have been airbrushing them out of photos for many years.

One of those artists, Donna Hare (L), blew the whistle on the cover-up in 2000 on WOL-AM radio in Washington, DC when she declared that thousands of NASA photos over the years have been doctored or obfuscated.

This whistleblower is no peon.  She was a NASA space illustrator and photographic slide technician who won many awards including the Apollo Achievement Award, Skylab Award and a commemorative medallion for meritorious service during the joint American/Russian Apollo-Soyuz space mission.

Hare’s talents are too great to have done the sloppy airbrushing in the NASA Moon photos below but they show how structures on the Moon are covered up.  The small green arrows in the left photo point to several structures, including two towers, that have been airbrushed from sight.



Orb near Sun turns green

Editor’s explanation: Ever since we began posting photos of an orb near the Sun in 2009, the orbs have appeared either white or blue.  So, we were surprised when we received photos of green-tinted orbs taken from both sides of the continental USA.

The first two photos below were taken in Sylva, NC on April 28, 2018 by Christy Hughes. She recently learned about the orb near the Sun and snapped these photos even though she couldn’t see the orb with her own eyes.

Then from the other side of the country, our Facebook manager Vickie McMahan sent us the above photo she took from the beach in La Jolla, CA about 6 p.m. on May 2, 2018. 

She, too, didn’t see anything unusual in the sky at the time but later her photo revealed a green-tinted orb.  Since it was late in the day, the orb appeared close to the horizon.

UFOs return to spot where UFO once landed

Above is a photo of the narrow gravel road to Glynis Heenan’s home which is a few miles from the center of the mountaintop town of Cashiers in Western North Carolina.  Without the glare of city lights, she often sees UFOs in the night sky. 

Recently, she sent us photos of two types of UFOs above the horse paddock near her home.  It’s the same paddock where she saw a small sky ship land in 2012.  Sadly, back then she did not carry a camera with her. – The editor

“I was driving home from town about 11 p.m. on Friday, April 20, 2018 and looked up and saw a UFO zipping and zapping around in the sky,” Glynis explained. “I followed it for about two miles, then pulled off the road by the pasture near my home.  I watched it for nearly a half hour and managed to get these photos of it (above).

“Then 12 nights later on May 2, 2018 on the same road, I saw a UFO over the ridge in front of me.  As I drove on, I saw it was over the pasture where I saw a UFO land in 2012.

“When I got to the pasture, the UFO came down lower and lower and got bigger and bigger. Unlike the April 20 UFO, this one looked round and descended slowly but it never landed.  I watched it for about 10 to 15 minutes before it disappeared.”

The pasture gate is shown below with the UFO in the far distance before it began to descend toward the pasture.  A closer view of the UFO is shown on the right.





Illuminated “horseshoe” UFO over Tifton, GA

Vickie McMahan, Facebook manager for this website, snapped the above photo of an illuminated UFO over Tifton, Georgia on February 25, 2018 at 6:55 p.m.  An enlargement of the horseshoe-shaped UFO is above on the right.
“After grilling our supper outside at the KOA Campground,” she explained, “we took the kids to feed the horses in the adjoining pasture.  That’s when I snapped this photo.”






UFOs in live-streaming of Tesla space car

Elon Musk successfully launched his SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket on February 6, 2017 with one of his Tesla roadsters onboard.  The first leg of the roadster’s voyage toward the asteroid belt was live-streamed for hours for all in the world to see.

Those who watched the odyssey may have seen more than they expected.  There were lights that did not move like stars and an eye-catching burst of light appeared above and to the left of the roadster and then briefly transformed into an unidentified spacecraft.
Below are photos from the live-stream video showing that appearance and transformation.

CLICK HERE to watch four hours and 39 minutes of the car’s space odyssey.
It becomes more interesting two hours and 33 minutes into the video.





UFO with a streak behind it seen in Cashiers, NC

The top photo is one of several Glynis Heenan snapped around 2 a.m. on January 26, 2018 from a second story porch of her Cashiers, NC home. The same photo also is shown in blue so the streak behind the object or objects more readily can be seen.

“The object was in the sky when I first looked out the window,” Glynis explained. “It was really cold but I went out on the deck for about 15 minutes before going back inside to get warm.  The object was in view the whole time.  It was northwest of Cashiers in the same part of the sky as the UFO I photographed about 4 a.m. on January 7, 2018.”

Photos of secret advanced aircraft in Florida

Nevada isn’t the only state where secret advanced aircraft are being developed and tested.
The following Google Earth photos reveal a sleek aircraft parked at the end of a small runway due west of Jupiter, Florida.

To make this discovery more intriguing, the vehicle is parked outside a building owned by Pratt & Whitney.  According to the company’s website, it is a world leader in the design and manufacture of top-of-the-line military engines for 31 armed forces around the world.

Then back on September 7, 2017 secret advanced aircraft were seen fleeing from MacDill Air Force Base in Central Florida just three days before Hurricane Irma began ripping across the state. Below are photos of some of those fleeing craft that were provided to Dr. Michael Salla at by a man identified only as JP. It’s worth mentioning that MacDill AFB is home of the U.S. Central Command and U.S. Special Operations Command.




Unique UFO over Cashiers, NC

This photo of Glynis Heenan, her daughter Devon and her mother Grace was taken in 2008 after they saw and photographed UFOs for the first time in their lives.  Those photos of UFOs over Cashiers, NC actually inspired the launch of this website that same year. 

Since then, UFOs continue to fly over the mountaintop town and Glynis continues to be our faithful sky watcher in Cashiers.

Below are recent photos she snapped in the early hours of January 7, 2018. – The editor

“Sometime around 4 am I rolled over in bed and noticed a large bright light out the window,” Glynis explains, “so I got up, grabbed my camera and went outside on the upstairs deck.  That’s when I saw a UFO in the sky northwest of Cashiers.

“The first shots were rather interesting but then another UFO appeared in the distance which quickly changed in shape. I observed the objects for 10 to 15 minutes.”

The photo to the left is
an enlargement of the more distance object in the above photo.





UFOs seen near world’s largest military base


The above photos are from a brief video of UFOs over a shopping mall in Spring Lake, NC.  It was taken by Jenn N. on December 14, 2017 at 5:23 pm and later posted on the Third Phase of Moon YouTube channel.

It’s interesting to hear Jenn’s spontaneous comments as she videotapes the UFOs.  It’s also interesting that the town of Spring Lake is right on the edge of Fort Bragg which is the largest military installation in the world and includes the headquarters for U.S. Army Special Operations.
