“More than 1/3 of Americans believe in UFO’s and one in 10 Americans believe that they have seen a UFO according to a study by National Geographic Channel. UFO sightings are reported all over the planet by thousands of people. The real question is whether UFO’s are interstellar vehicles visiting Earth? Most UFO sightings can be classified as misidentified aircraft, planets or other aerial phenomena, but not all of them. There is a small percentage of UFO sightings that can’t be explained by any known aircraft or natural phenomena. It is this small percentage of UFO sightings that create an exciting possibility. Over the years real UFO sightings have reported simultaneous electromagnetic disturbances. The UFO Detector is designed to sense these electromagnetic disturbances and signal their detection flashing 16 LED’s simultaneously and beeping. The elegantly designed transparent plastic case is a handsome sculptured conversation piece that’s allows one to see the electronics inside the case. Suitable for display on a desk, shelf or bedroom dresser.”
Amazon seems to be doing quite well with the product since there are currently more than a hundred reviews on the site with an overall rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars. And, most are about what would be expected:
“I am very satisfied with this product and will recommend it to all of the human race” writes James O’Brien.
R. J. Reid reports: “This little gizmo is a bargain at twice the price and much more accurate than the voices in my head.”
And “This amazing device gives ample warning and is HIGHLY ACCURATE. I had a pretty good idea of when there was abnormal activity in my area. BUT NOW, DAMN. Every time that I notice distorted sensory emissions, bang, the detector is going off! WOOT WOOT WOOT!” says They Are Everywhere.
But, as with just about any mass produced product these days, it’s not all raves. Cyphis complains that “I don’t know if this is a scam or if mine was broken, but it doesn’t work and I am still getting abducted by UFO’s on a regular basis.” …

The annual Kennedy Center Honors reception isn’t normally a place to break news, but President Obama opted Sunday to publicly mention Area 51 — the installation where the government is supposedly storing UFOs and alien life, the inspiration for innumerable conspiracy theories.
The reason: Oscar-winning actress Shirley MacLaine and her claims to have seen UFOs and extraterrestrial beings.
“Now, when you first become president, one of the questions that people ask you is, ‘What’s really going on in Area 51?’” Obama said to chuckles at the White House event.
“When I wanted to know, I’d call Shirley MacLaine.”
Obama added: “I think I just became the first president to ever publicly mention Area 51. How’s that, Shirley?”
The other Kennedy Center honorees were musicians Billy Joel, Carlos Santana, Herbie Hancock, and opera star Martina Arroyo.
NEWS: Kennedy Center honorees saluted
As for MacLaine and Area 51, Time magazine noted:
“The president couldn’t resist the opportunity to joke about the decades of conspiracy theories surrounding mysterious lights and aliens at the Nevada installation. …
“The official use for the Nevada Test and Training Range and Groom Lake — the formal name for the facility commonly known as Area 51 — is far less otherworldly. It’s been the testing ground for government programs, including the U-2 spy plane and various stealth aircraft.”

The FBI began experimenting with drones in 1995, but didn’t view them as a viable option for video surveillance until a full decade later. Since then, however, the agency appears to have slowly but steadily moved forward in building its drone program. Now, details of that program have been revealed in a series of recently released documents sent to Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington CREW, an advocacy group that issued a Freedom of Information Act request in June. Though CREW was interested in learning what company provided the FBI’s drones and where the purchases’ funding came from, that information is largely redacted. Even so, the documents do reveal quite a bit about the program’s development, including how the FBI has been using drones and what it plans to do with them in the future.The documents show that the FBI’s first operational drone deployment was in October, 2006. Drone use was “limited over the next four years,” the documents read, noting that funding issues and compliance with Federal Aviation Administration FAA regulations were major limiting factors. While the FBI’s Technical Response Unit oversaw its drone program at first, the program was transferred to its Video Surveillance Unit in 2009, at which point drone “inventory and missions began to increase.” The documents suggest that this wasn’t so much a matter of the new unit utilizing them more, but that agents began to better understand what drones were capable of.

In order to have an “unidentified flying object,” the origins of said object must be unknown. And yet, technically, we know how to identify UFOs – or at least as pop culture has imagined them. They are flying saucers covered with lights that float through the air like spinning plates. Or something. Some people spend their lives looking for one, others fear what would happen if they were abducted by one.
Yet, artist Peter Coffin has built one.
“The question I get excited about is “Well, why did you make the UFO in the first place? Isn’t a UFO something that people don’t make? Isn’t it supposed to be an alien thing?”" Coffin told WIRED. “Does it make it more real or less real at that point because it’s man-made?”
Coffin didn’t build his UFO because he’s particularly interested in alien spacecraft. Instead, his flying saucer, which flew over Station to Station“s Barstow event Tuesday, is meant to be thought-provoking – to make people contemplate why we look to the skies hoping to see UFOs, even if we’d be horrified to actually see one. (You know, because it could mean an invasion.)
Think about it. Some folks, like the team at the SETI Institute, scan the heavens actively seeking out life elsewhere in the universe. Other people would spot a flying saucer and immediately feel terrified by whatever life forms might be inside. Hollywood does the same thing: sometimes intergalactic visitors are E.T., cute and cuddly and obsessed with Reese’s Pieces, while others are predatory monsters looking to drain Earth of its resources or enslave its people. …
Walking onto the build site for the UFO before the test run in Barstow – which was actually conducted in a nearby cemetery – Coffin smiled like a kid when he saw his creation again. “It’s going to be great to see this thing fly.” Folks from Cinimod Studio and Prolyte Group, which helped Coffin design and build the contraption, scurried around affixing lights and GoPro cameras to the 1,800-pound aluminum structure and securing its on-board computer. They make it look easy, but Cinimod Studio founder Dominic Harris noted there wasn’t much prior art for something like this. “This was massively over-engineered,” he said. …
Human built circular winged aircraft have been around for a long time, but that is supposed to be a secret. You are supposed to think “Aliens!” if you see one. I’m not saying they are all manmade… But some are and if you make a good one–Coffin has nothing to worry about, his circular lit platform is held up with wires using an unseen helicopter or balloon–you have an accident and then your design never got of the ground, never actually flew, nothing to see here folks.

What caused the sudden rush of these most powerful leaders of the Western World to go to Afghanistan, this report continues, was to directly view the discovery by US Military scientists of what is described as a “Vimana” entrapped in a “Time Well”
that has already caused the “disappearance” of at least 8 American Soldiers trying to remove it from the cave it has been hidden in for the past estimated 5,000 years.
What an amazing load of unsubstantiated wishful thinking about what we must reasonably assume are ancient works of fiction. Belief in outrageous claims without evidence is a solid definition of crazy. I have a few Vimanas around here somewhere…

Singer Rihanna is reportedly very keen on seeing an alien movement in the sky and has even hired a man, who will inform her about the movement happening in the sky.
The 25-year-old firmly believes in existence of the extra-territorial beings.
“Rihanna has always been convinced aliens will land on earth in her lifetime. So she started using the man, who calls himself a sky scanner, to give her information from Nevada on anything that relates to sightings,” dailystar.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
The “Umbrella” singer doesn’t mind funding the man for the purpose of finding aliens.
“He keeps in touch with her from the Little A’Le’Inn – a motel which hosts UFO hunters,” a source said.
“It’s also near one of the world’s most secret government bases, Area 51. This isn’t a fad for Rihanna, she is a total believer and doesn’t mind spending her money on it to get results,” the source added. …

Researchers confirm the existence of this synthetic element in a new accelerator study. Will it be enough to give ununpentium official recognition and a new name?At the bottom right corner of the periodic table of elements, there are a handful of boxes that illustrators often color gray. The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry leaves out those boxes altogether, so that their periodic table looks a bit gap-toothed. The boxes are for elements that the IUPAC hasn’t yet confirmed actually exist.
Now, a new set of experiments backs up the discovery of one of those elements. An international team of physicists has synthesized an element with 115 protons in the GSI accelerator in Germany. This isn’t the first time a research group has synthesized the element, which has the temporary name of ununpentium (Latin for one-one-five, plus “-ium.”) A team of Russian and U.S. scientists first made ununpentium in the early 2000s and published a paper about it in 2006. However, at the time, the IUPAC didn’t consider that enough evidence to officially recognize-or name-ununpentium. The new GSI studies are another step toward official recognition.
Why do we say that people “synthesized” or “made” ununpentium, instead of saying people “found” it? Well, like other super-heavy elements, ununpentium can only exist when people perform experiments to create it. It’s an entirely synthetic element (ununpentium : elements :: polyester : fabrics?). You can’t just cook it up in any lab, either. The creation of elements heavier than uranium, which is the heaviest element to occur naturally on Earth and contains 92 protons, requires fusion reactions, nuclear reactions, or other highly specialized chemistry. Before ununpentium, the GSI accelerator had created six synthetic elements with more protons than uranium.
To make ununpentium, the team of physicists working at GSI bombarded a thin film of americium-another synthetic element, with 95 protons-with calcium ions, which have 20 protons each. The bombardment fuses the nuclei of the americium atoms with the nuclei of the calcium atoms to make a new, single, 115-proton nucleus. (See the very educational GIF on GSI’s “new elements” webpage.) Like all super-heavy, synthetic elements, ununpentium decays quickly. Atoms of ununpentium that researchers made for the 2006 announcement lasted just 30 to 80 milliseconds.
According to Lund University in Sweden, IUPAC members will now review the new confirmation of the 2006 work and decide whether it’s enough to merit official recognition for ununpentium. Lund researchers led the recent ununpentium experiments done at GSI. Meanwhile, the Lund team has published its findings in the journalPhysical Review Letters.
Besides confirming cool theories in chemistry, work on synthetic elements helps researchers learn more about the process of fission in general, according to the U.S.” Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. You’re unlikely to see ununpentium in even the most advanced gizmos of the future, however. So far, scientists have found practical applications only for synthetic elements with 100 or so protons or fewer. …
This is particularly interesting to UFO buffs since 115 is the element that was said to have anti-gravity properties.
Element 115, the key to understanding how the ultra-secret “Black World” has created aircraft capable of manipulating gravity and space/time, has been identified … The reactor found in the alien craft at S4, as widely mentioned by physicist Robert Lazar is primarily based on a superheavy element with an atomic number of 115. Element 115 will be designated as “Ununpentium” according to IUPAC guidelines.
Bob Lazar stated that the “Sport Model” Flying Disc amplified the “Strong Nuclear Force” of Element 115 (UnUnPentium or UUP) to generate the gravity field for “Space-Time Compression.” Bob also stated that the U.S. Government had 500 pounds of Element 115 in their possession. The raw Element 115 was given to the U.S. Goverment at S4 by the Reticulan EBEs in the form of discs. …
Bob Lazar stated that the … fuel and gravity source in the “Sport Model” Flying Disc was stable. On February 2, 2004, scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, in collaboration with researchers from the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Russia (JINR), announced that they discovered two new super-heavy elements, Element 113 and Element 115. The Isotope of Element 115, produced by bombarding an Americium-243 (95Am243) nucleus with a Calcium-48 (20Ca48) nucleus, rapidly decayed to Element 113. then continued to decay until a meta-stable isotope was obtained. …
The following reactions are the actual reactions that took place in the laboratory by bombarding Americium-243 with Calcium-48, which resulted in the two Isotopes of Element 115, indicated below, being identified.
95Am243 + 20Ca48 → 115UUP288 + 30n1 115UUP288 → 113UUT284 + 2He4 → …
95Am243 + 20Ca48 → 115UUP287 + 40n1 115UUP287 → 113UUT283 + 2He4 → …
The maximum theoretical atomic mass isotope of Element 115 that could be produced in the reaction, above, 115UUP291, would only have 176 neutrons in its nucleus. This isotope of Element 115 is shy 8 neutrons from containing the magic number of 184 neutrons. The two actual isotopes of Element 115 produced by this reaction, 115UUP288 and 115UUP287 contain 173 neutrons, shy 11 neutrons from the magic number of 184, and 172 neutrons, shy 12 neutrons from the magic number of 184, respectively.
This latest scientific breakthrough, however, provides significant credibility to Bob Lazar’s claims rather than discrediting his claims. Bob Lazar’s Element 115 discs used to make the wedge for the “Sport Model” Flying Disc Anti-Matter Reactor would have to have been the isotope of Element 115 containing the magic number of 184 neutrons, therefore, having an atomic mass of 299. The nuclear configuration of this isotope of Element 115 would be identical to the nuclear configuration of the only known stable isotope of Element 83, Bismuth, 83Bi209, containing the magic number of 126 neutrons, except that the Element 115 isotope would have one more energy level completely filled with protons and neutrons. 82 protons and 114 protons are magic numbers for protons because 82 protons completely fill 6 proton energy levels and 114 protons completely fill 7 proton energy levels. The 83rd proton for Bismuth is a lone proton in the 7th proton energy level and the 115th proton for Element 115 is the lone proton in the 8th proton energy level. 126 neutrons completely fill 7 neutron energy levels and 184 neutrons completely fill 8 neutron energy levels. Refer to the Nucleon Energy Level Table for Bismuth and Element 115, below, for the nuclear configurations of Bismuth and Element 115. This stable isotope of Bismuth, Element 83, has very unique gravitational characteristics. Refer to the Henry William Wallace Patent: U.S. Patent 3,626,605, “Method and Apparatus for Generating a Secondary Gravitational Force Field.”

NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy alerted ground controllers on Monday to an unidentified flying object floating near the International Space Station – but this was no alien spacecraft.
Instead, it was a piece of the station itself: Russian ground controllers identified it as an antenna cover from the Zvezda service module, one of the oldest parts of the station.
The sighting merited just a brief mention in NASA’s latest space station status report, plus a short clip on NASA’s YouTube channel. Because the antenna cover’s speed in relation to the rest of the station was so low, it didn’t pose that much of a collision hazard. But controllers were glad to see the debris fade off into the distance, heading for what they expected would be a brief, fiery re-entry in the atmosphere.
This wasn’t the first station debris to cause a UFO stir: Back in 1998, during the shuttle Endeavour’s mission to hook the U.S.-built Unity connecting node to the Russian-made Zvezda module, astronauts spotted a blobby object floating away from the scene. NASA determined that the object was a discarded thermal cover, but that didn’t stop UFO fans from working the material into their tale of a mysterious “Black Knight” satellite that has been circling our planet for millennia. …

An Erie County, PA, witness reported becoming fearful while watching a rectangle-shaped object crossing the sky about 9:35 p.m. on May 1, 2013, that appeared to be fluttering, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was outside on a deck watching a clear sky when the object was first noticed.
“When I first saw the object I thought it was a bird,” the witness stated. “Only for a split second did I think that because this object was far too large to be a bird. It was rectangle in shape and it wobbled/fluttered almost like a flag does when it’s windy. There was a white glow to it and this sighting lasted about 10 seconds.”
The witness was overcome with fear.
“My feeling when I saw this was complete fear. I couldn’t even watch to see how long I could see this object until it was out of view. I grabbed my tea and ran inside and tried to catch my breath. I became sick. I was shaky and my head felt weird.”
No images or videos were included with MUFON Case 47113. The witness included a link to a video where the object looked very similar to the object she saw. Erie County, PA, has a population of 280,566.
