Flying Saucer UFO Filmed Over Naples (Video)

March 29, 2012 01:15 AM EDT

A classic flying saucer UFO was caught on tape, from several angles, flying over the skies of Naples, Italy.

The unidentified flying object is framed against the Mediterranean sky as witnesses look up in wonder, and a hint of fear. The disk-shaped object hovers in place for a moment before moving out of camera range.

Whoever filmed the video was able to chase it to a different location and zoom in for a better closeup. But it still doesn't help to identify this as any known aircraft. Enhancing the image doesn't reveal any significant detail, other than that the UFO is black, rounded, and apparently spinning.

As daylight fades, the object begins to glide away. Comments on the video don't reveal anything other than the claim it's flying over Naples. The language spoken by the witnesses is hard to make out, but they clearly don't know what to make of what they are looking at.

So what is it?  Here's the video:

'Prometheus' to be tamed by PG-13 rating? (Video)

By Robbie Graham

Prometheus director Ridley Scott spoke to Empire magazine recently about what age rating his movie might receive and the big questions that drove him to revisit the Alien universe he helped create in 1979.

Scott said of Alien's ‘Space Jockey’ subplot:
"I always wondered when they did [Aliens] 2, 3 and 4 why they hadn't touched upon that, instead of evolving into some other fantastic story. They missed the biggest question of them all: who's the big guy [the Space Jockey]? And where were they going? And with what? Why that cargo? There's all kinds of questions."
Regarding the possible age rating for Prometheus, Scott hinted to Empire that the violence may have been toned-down enough to facilitate a PG-13 rating (booo!), but insisted that the movie will be every bit as powerful as the R-rated Alien and Aliens.

"The question is, do you go for the PG-13, [which] financially makes quite a difference, or do you go for what it should be, which is R? Essentially, it's kinda R... It's not just about the blood, it's about ideas that are very stressful. I'm not an idiot, but I'll do everything I can to get the most aggressive film I can."

I, for one, am disappointed (though not particularly surprised). “Kinda R” is not “R”. PG-13 may work for Harry Potter, but the horrors the Alien universe were never meant to be tamed. Still, even if it does wind-up a PG-13, if Scott’s final product can match the chilling intensity of its trailer, fans may yet find it in their hearts to forgive the old master.

Aztec UFO landing subject of new book

AZTEC - The Aztec UFO Symposium may be a thing of the past, but discussion continues about the purported 1948 flying saucer landing. The upcoming release of "The Aztec Incident: Recovery at Hart Canyon," by Scott and Suzanne Ramsey may spark renewed interest in the incident, and the authors claim the book will change history.
The book provides new evidence about the famous incident and incorporates significant background on the Four Corners region. It is the culmination of 25 years of research by the Ramseys, including reviews of more than 55,000 documents and interviews of eyewitnesses in 27 states.
The Ramseys affirm their research proves that a controlled landing by a craft not of this world did occur, and that the U.S. military rushed in to cloak evidence of the landing.
What exactly occurred at Hart Canyon, 12 miles northeast of Aztec, on March 25, 1948, has long been debated.
Skeptics say that Frank Scully, author of the 1950 book, "Behind the Flying Saucers," was the victim of a hoax perpetrated by several con men. In his book, Scully claimed that a UFO landed in Hart Canyon and 16 dead humanoid (but non-human) bodies were discovered at the crash site inside a 99-foot metal disk. The military reportedly secretly removed the craft and the bodies.
The debate about the veracity of this event has continued, to the point where it became the focus of the annual Aztec UFO symposium, which this year was discontinued.

Ramsey believes the book proves the reality of the incident, which, was probably less of a crash and more of a controlled landing by a UFO, possibly after it was shot at, he said.
"During our interviews of witnesses at the landing site, the accounts were consistent," Ramsey said. "Eyewitness reports are sometimes the worst. We had to be careful, as many of the witnesses were 19 years old at the time of the incident, and by the time I got to them, they were in their 80s. It was the consistency of certain details over the years that drew my attention."
One of these consistent details involved a hole in the portal of the craft, recalled by all witnesses, Ramsey said. Another detail was the presence of the small, child-like, non-human bodies.
According to Ramsey, the military secured the craft and bodies, spiriting them away to a secure laboratory and swearing the witnesses to secrecy.
"It was right after World War II and was the early period of the Cold War. Our military wasn't just good back then, it was excellent," he said. "The presence of UFOs was regarded as higher in secrecy than the H-bomb, and New Mexico was having a lot of problems with UFOs hovering over military sites."
The same craft possibly was seen buzzing over the Los Alamos lab just weeks before the Hart Canyon landing.
"It was a time in this country when our safety was first and foremost, and I think our government just wanted to protect us," Suzanne said. "It (the cover up) wasn't for the purpose of being secretive, it was to be protective."
Suzanne believes this book differs from previous publications as it focuses on hard facts and documented research.
"We are historians, and we are not making any wild assumptions, which has previously occurred with this incident," she said. "We never try to convince the reader. We're providing the facts, and the reader can make his or her own decisions. If the data can't be proven or corroborated, then we didn't put it in the book."
A major contributor to the book, Frank Thayer, is a journalism professor at New Mexico State University. He accompanied the Ramseys on some of their research trips.
Thayer believes this to be the best book yet written on the subject and predicts the impact of the book will be significant, possibly forever changing Aztec.
"The independent and coinciding stories of eyewitnesses was the one thing we didn't have before," Thayer said. "That's what was so impressive to me: these individuals were real, credible people who were separated by hundreds of miles, yet they all had coinciding stories, including about being sworn to secrecy by the military."
Thayer believes the U.S. government will never admit to what it knows about UFOs.
"The best thing they can do is to ignore it and keep it out of the press," he said.
"The Aztec Incident: Recovery at Hart Canyon" will be released April 16. A free preview of the first 26 pages is available at

Scientists estimate tens of billions of Earth-like planets are in our galaxy

| Mar 28, 2012

New data from the European Southern Observatory’s HARPS (High Accuracy Radial velocity Planet Searcher) planet-hunting telescope suggests there could be tens of billions of Earth-like planets in our galaxy.
Astronomers analyzing this new data estimate that approximately forty percent of red dwarf stars in the Milky Way galaxy may have Earth-sized planets orbiting them with the right conditions for life. Red dwarfs constitute nearly eighty percent of the stars in the galaxy, and, according to, their pervasiveness means “that there are tens of billions of possible places to look for life beyond Earth, with at least 100 such planets located nearby.”

During this recent survey of red dwarf stars, scientists discovered a planet in the Gliese 667 triple star system. This is the second planet discovered in that system, and has been named Gliese 667 Cc. The planet is situated near the center of the habitable zone, and, according to astronomers, it “almost certainly has the right conditions for the existence of liquid water on its surface.” Gliese 667 Cc is the second super-Earth planet located in the habitable zone of a red dwarf star discovered during this HARPS survey. The first was Gliese 581d, which was confirmed in 2009.

With more information coming in from ESO’s HARPS and NASA’s Kepler space telescope, and current data continuing to be analyzed by astronomers, incredible discoveries about our galaxy are sure to become more common. Each new discovery helps us learn more about our mysterious universe, and, perhaps, brings us closer to finding extraterrestrial life.
