The Phoenix Lights were a mass UFO sighting which occurred in Phoenix, Arizona, USA and Sonora, Mexico on Thursday, March 13, 1997. Lights of varying descriptions were reported by thousands of people between 19:30 and 22:30 MST, in a space of about 300 miles (480 km) from the Nevada state line, through Phoenix, to the edge of Tucson. There were allegedly two distinct events involved in the incident: a triangular formation of lights seen to pass over the state, and a series of stationary lights seen in the Phoenix area. The U.S. Air Force later identified the second group of lights as flares dropped by A-10 Warthog-aircraft that were on training exercises at the Barry Goldwater Range in southwest Arizona.
Although, many people think that was a cover up. The Governor of Arizona at the time, was one witness to this incident. As governor, he ridiculed the idea of alien origin,
but later he told people that the lights seems “otherworldly”. He admitted he saw
The researchers note that octopuses appear to have
suddenly diverged genetically from their ancestors, making a sudden “great leap
forward” – “its large brain and sophisticated nervous system, camera-like eyes,
flexible bodies, instantaneous camouflage via the ability to switch color and
shape are just a few of the striking features that appear suddenly on the
evolutionary scene.” After discussing some of the genetic data, the researchers
then suggest that these genetic ‘jumps’ “seem to be borrowed from a far distant
“future” in terms of terrestrial evolution, or more realistically from the
cosmos at large.” But they’re not just talking about a virus traveling to Earth
from space – they instead, amazingly, suggest the possibility “that
cryopreserved Squid and/or Octopus eggs, arrived in icy bolides several hundred
million years ago should not be discounted as that would be a parsimonious
cosmic explanation for the Octopus’ sudden emergence on Earth ca. 270 million
Yes, you heard that right: 33 scientists wrote a paper in
which they suggest that octopuses might be aliens.
This video – a declassified clip that comes to us from Soviet Russia – shows a commonly seen type of UFO, the cylinder or cigar-shape. Starting at 0:17 in the video, you can see the silhouette of the UFO begin by matching speed with the Soviet fighters before accelerating at a rate called “impossible” by both American and Soviet standards for the time. The clips uses anonymous interviews, animations, and raw footage to demonstrate how even the most powerful of nations can be baffled by the unknown.
