Video: The hefty, eight-armed Freefly Alta drone is capable of carrying a lot of weight. So in addition to a camera, the folks at YouTube's rctestflight channel put 1000-watts of LEDs on board, and a smoke machine, unintentionally creating the perfect way to fake an alien encounter or a UFO abduction.

Film distributor The Orchard just picked up the rights to release a documentary called Unacknowledged: An Exposé of the Greatest Secret in Human History. The company is planning on putting it out in 2017, and its press release has some of the loftiest and, frankly, most exciting/unbelievable claims imaginable.
Video: And here I thought stingrays were jolly surfers of the ocean. Not to crabs! Watch as this giant stingray catch a spider crab and vacuum suck the poor crab right into the stingray's mouth. It's like one minute the crab is there, the next he's been vaporised. Poor crab was too busy moulting to realise the UFO of the sea was about to abduct it.
Here's a really fun map that plots out where UFO sightings are seen the most across the US of A. Made by John Nelson of IDV Solutions, it shows where sightings are seen the most in relation to the area's population, compares the popularity of different types of shapes of UFO across the years (1970's had disk shaped, 2013 is all about the fireballs) and when UFOs are seen the most (summer nights!).
If all the reports of UFO sightings are real, then Earth must be the most popular destination in the Universe. Obviously, that's a ridiculous anthropocentric notion, as Dr Carl Sagan explains in the must-see 1966 CBS documentary UFO: Friend, Foe, or Fantasy hosted by Walter Cronkite. Listen to Sagan at the 51:55 mark.
There's nothing more befuddling than looking up at the sky and seeing a strange light appear out of nowhere. Your adult brain tells you it can't be what you want it to be, but when you check with adult-brained officials, they're clueless too. That's what just happened in Hawaii. A mysterious zigzagging light popped up out of nowhere and no one knows what is it or where it came from.
As a name, Hessdalen may be more familiar to UFO watchers than scientists. The valley in Norway is prone to "strange, hovering, flashing balls of lights" best attributed, as some believe, to alien origins. Now scientists say they're on the verge of an explanation: The valley is a giant natural battery.
A clearer photo of the mysterious unidentified flying object in Texas has surfaced. The image — enhanced above — clearly shows a boomerang-shaped blended wing object with two exhaust nozzles that seems clearly different from a B-2 bomber. It was "completely silent" and did "severe 180 degree turns in the sky in the shape of an S."
Nearly everyone who's looked up at the night sky has asked him or herself at least some form of the very same question: Are we really, truly alone in the universe? The only thing that's certain is that we definitely don't want to be. Maybe that explains why we keep seeing UFOs in the sky... and why they're always one of three types.
One late evening in 1981, lying sleepless in my student bedsit at the top of a house in Manchester, I became aware of a pattern of bright flashing lights on the wall. All I could see through the curtainless window on the opposite side of the room was a strip of rather cloudy night sky. The vivid flashing was coming from within, or perhaps behind, a bank of cloud. As I continued to watch, an object materialised from within the cloud, advancing until it stood in plain view in the night sky.
Ufologists are jumping up and down after "discovering flying saucers" in the latest images captured by Curiosity. It hasn't been the first time and it will not be the last — the guys with the tinfoil hats are scrutinising every single image uploaded by the rover.
It was just another ordinary morning in June, 1983 when Queensland dairy farmer Robin Priete looked up and saw something strange hovering in the sky. He phoned local police, who had it described to them as a large white light with flashing lights surrounding it. Normally the police would have written this off as a hoax or dismissed it as a crazy claim, but that's when three separate people reported seeing the same thing in the night sky. Elsewhere, the Air Force had seen it too, and started to get crews into their fighter jets to respond. Welcome to Australia's X-Files.
It's been 65 years since the crash of the UFO (or officially, a weather balloon) in Roswell, New Mexico. 65 years since Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) public information officer Walter Haut told the world that the military had recovered a flying saucer. 65 years since aliens have been on our planet, or alternatively 65 years of conspiracy theories.
When this happened in Kansas in broad light, people gathered along the road in awe to watch what they thought could be a UFO transported by the military. Last night, the same scene caused a frenzy on Washington DC's highways.
Do I believe in UFOs or extraterrestrial visitors? Where shall I begin? There's a fascinating frailty of the human mind that psychologists know all about, called "argument from ignorance". This is how it goes. Remember what the "U" stands for in "UFO"? You see lights flashing in the sky. You've never seen anything like this before and don't understand what it is. You say, "It's a UFO!" The "U" stands for "unidentified."
