'Men In Black' on security footage after UFO sighting

Isn't Men In Black the name of a movie franchise starring Will Smith? It seems perhaps there really are men in black operating in the U.S. After a recent UFO sighting in Maryland, men wearing all black showed up, and security cameras in a hotel lobby captured them on film.

Oddly enough, these visitors were tall and pale and did not have any facial hair on their faces (including no eyebrows and eyelashes). Doesn't that seem incredibly strange? Added to that, they had nearly hypnotic blue eyes.
Some people wondered if perhaps these two men, who looked enough alike to be twins, were simply pulling some type of prank or hoax. However, there are plenty of other people who look at this footage and see real proof of actual men in black in the U.S.
You can check out this strange video on the left. What do you think about this? Do these men prove that there was a UFO sighting in the area? Perhaps they were there trying to erase any evidence that might be there. Of course, they could have been playing a prank. It is hard to know, but it is fun to speculate about.

UFO filmed from Plane over Iran on April 19, 2012

Published on 20 Apr 2012 by

"Vitali P. filmed this UFO over Iran from the aircraft on April 19, 2012. He has discovered it late, but he held it for a smaller aircraft. Later could be seen on the video, that object looks like a flying saucer".

Pulsating UFO Spotted Over Korean Border (Video)

By Tom Rose

A silver, saucer-shaped, pulsating UFO was caught on video hovering over the Korean border. What is it?

The video shows an unidentified flying object floating over what is said to be the border between North and South Korea. But all that can be made out are some power lines stretching off into the distance.

Hovering above the drooping lines is a silver orb, flashing multi-colored lights which seem to pulsate around its hull. Lightning flashes overhead, threatening an oncoming storm. It adds a dramatic flair to the kind of sighting which is being caught on video all around the world.

The camera zooms in for a closer look and it reveals the UFO is not shaped like any known aircraft. It's not a jet, a plane or a helicopter, but it does bear a striking resemblance to many other similar objects caught on tape recently. So what is it? Here's the video:

Cigar-Shaped Object Appears in Full Daylight!

A California witness at La Mesa pulled over to get a better look at a "grayish-colored, blimp or cigar-shaped object seen in the southwest skies in full daylight" on April 17, 2012, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
"It was just hovering above the tree tops in the distance," the witness stated. "I pulled my car over to try and get a better look and it started to move very slowly."
The witness described the object's movement.
"Twice it kind of rotated to a 45 degree angle, hovered like that, and then it straightened back out and kept up its crawling pace. It was not shaped like a plane, but rather like a blimp or a cigar. It was so far away I was having a hard time watching it, really."
The witness attempted to take photos of the object, but states that they did not come out well. The witness speculated as to what the object could have been.
"Now, it could very well have been a blimp, I have no clue, but do blimps rotate at 45 degree angles and hover? I would like to know this, and I looked on the Internet to see if I could find anything about blimps flying over San Diego and I couldn't find anything."

No images or videos were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on April 18, 2012. La Mesa is a city in San Diego County, CA, population 57,065. The above quotes were edited for clarity.
California is a current
UFO ALERT 3 rating, with a high number of UFO sightings nationally. California had 71 reports in March 2012 - the highest reporting state in the nation.
You can read more details about other recently reported cases at the UFO Examiner home page.
The following is the unedited and as yet uninvestigated report filed with MUFON. Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be explained as something natural or manmade. If California MUFON
investigates and reports back on this case, I will release an update. Please report UFO activity to
CA, April 17, 2012 - Grayish colored, blimp/cigar-shaped object seen in the SW skies in full daylight. MUFON Case 37567.
I was driving out of my complex, which is located high up in the hills of La Mesa, when I spotted an object in the SW skies. I see planes coming in all the time, and this was no plane. It was just hovering above the tree tops in the distance. I pulled my car over to try and get a better look and it started to move VERY SLOWLY. Twice it kind of rotated to a 45 degree angle, hovered like that, then it straightened back out and kept up it's crawling pace. It was not shaped like a plane, but rather like a blimp or a cigar. It was so far away I was having a hard time watching it, really. That being said, the planes that were coming in, and there were at least four that passed as I watched, were much closer in proximity to me, and this object at it's far-off distance appeared to be the same size. So it must have been huge. Anyways, I tried taking three pics of this thing and I'll be damned if it barely showed up in just ONE photograph... and by barely I mean I had to zoom in and crop it for a while before I finally found it - and it doesn't look like anything spectacular, therefore I have not included it. Now, it could very well have been a blimp, I have no clue, but do blimps rotate at 45 degree angles and hover? I would like to know this... and I looked on the internet to see if I could find anything about blimps flying over San Diego and I couldn't find anything. This is my second sighting of something unusual in exactly 7 days... I have never seen a UFO, now I have seen TWO in just a week... I don't know. Please help.

'Ender's Game' ET invasion movie: first photo

By Robbie Graham

Ender's Game producer Roberto Orci (whose credits include alien/UFO movies Transformers 1 & 2 and Cowboys and Aliens) has updated the film's Production Tumblr with a teaser photo of Ender Wiggin (played Asa Butterfield of Hugo fame) and his monitor implant.
Orci says...

Though Ender
s world is one worth saving, it sometimes comes with a price. The novel was amazingly prescient about a great many things: remote controlled drone wars, the internet, the influence of blogging, hand held computing tablets like the I-Pad, and of course, electronic surveillance implants. Implanted tracking and monitoring chips are no longer a science fiction concept. They exist now. And one day, they may be as advanced as the monitor implanted into Ender, which allows Colonel Graff to see through his eyes and know: HE’S THE ONE.

Ender’s Game is a big screen adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s classic – and, until now, “unfilmable” – sci-fi novel about a future Earth under threat of invasion by a race of insectoid aliens known as 'Formics'. Set seventy years after an epic human/alien war, the story follows the character of Ender Wiggin, a young boy whose tactical genius offers hope for humanity in the face of a new Formic invasion.
Currently filming under the direction of Gavin Hood for a November 1, 2013 release, Ender’s Game stars Ben Kingsley, Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin and Viola Davis.

The Recent Fuss About The Exeter Case

Some time ago I mentioned the famous Exeter, NH case after midnight on the third of September 1965. [I think that it was in one of the blog entries on CE1s]. Lately I've become aware of a lot of hullaballoo and even name-calling about the case. This regards a debunking effort being made by notorious CSICOP member, Joe Nickell [pictured to the left], and James McGaha [pictured next below]. Now I have read many debunkings by Nickell. Sometimes I can agree with what he's doing [his reconstruction of a Nazca Plain image was right on target and eliminated one extremist comment that some people were making about how "impossible" it would be to make an accurate design on that scale without having some aerial oversight --- everything from ancient astronauts to hot-air balloons were being hypothesized.] But I believe that Nickell seems [to me anyway] to be enjoying his debunking hobby so much that he is always on the hunt for another kill. So, he has put the Exeter case into his sights, and believes that he has blown it away.

This is naturally of some interest to me. The case has long stood as a CE1 classic, was investigated by not only the local Pease AFB UFOB officer [who credited it], but also one of UFOlogy's best, the 1965 version of Ray Fowler. J.Allen Hynek was impressed by the case and included it as a foundational example in his The UFO Experience.
The case was judged as having credible multiple witnesses [by everybody] and a strong smoothly visualizable narrative [i.e. the story had a natural context and flowed]. Also, though somewhat irrelevantly, it was the subject of a major book in the field, John Fuller's Incident at Exeter. So this is important in UFOlogical history, if one can say that anything is.

The other author of this debunking attempt is a person named James McGaha. I really don't know much about him. I seem to remember someone saying that he's retired USAF but claim no insight. I've heard his name occasionally over the years, but none of his debunks seem to have made an impression on me.

So, what are these guys claiming? N&M are saying that the Exeter CE1 was caused by the witnesses seeing a lengthy re-fueling operation where the fuel-bearing tanker was using red-colored strobe lights to guide the plane-to-be-refueled into place. That's the nub of their concept anyway.
At Exeter the general concept of the witnesses report was of bright red lights flashing, so one can see how a superficial analyst could read that and begin to build up an alternative hypothesis to debunk the case. Happily, this is another example of the debunker's predilection for having a simple brain gush, disregarding massive amounts of the actual witness testimony, and force fit an inadequate thought into an inappropriate situation.
Fortunately for us, and the search for Truth [which these --- jeez I want to put an uncivilized adjective in here --- "speculators" care almost nothing about], we have almost all the field investigation forms for Muscarello, Bertrand, and Hunt [ which were made very promptly at the time] available to any veteran researcher in one's files. My own Exeter file is about an inch and a half thick with all the USAF, Fowler, and Fuller interview materials.

Just to give you the answer that you already expect: those interview files show that the N&M speculation is itself bunk. Who would have guessed?
My modus operandi today is to give information directly out of those reports. Two of the witnesses were policemen [Hunt and Bertrand, pictured to the left] and were deemed as of the highest credibility/honesty. Since the third witness, 19-year old Norman Muscarello, basically agrees with them, one can reasonably give him high marks as well. Three witnesses... high credibility... was there enough "strangeness"?
Muscarello originally was confronted by the object [a thing with several very bright lights in a line] while, in his judgement it was nearby over a farm house. He was looking almost West at the time. He said that the object wobbled as it flew, the line of lights changing angles constantly from sloughed downwards left to flat to sloughed downwards right. The thing scared him greatly and he ultimately got to the police department and told his story.
One of the police officers [Eugene Bertrand] had interacted with a near hysterical woman [unidentified] earlier who said that her car had been chased by a brilliant red glowing object, which dived at her auto several times. He hadn't taken that seriously before but now he was beginning to. He went back with Muscarello to the farm area. Nothing. They walked down into the field. Nothing.

Then Bertrand saw a bright red light rise over a treeline. In fact it was a line of bright red lights which encompassed about a quarter's diameter [held at arm's length] when first spotted. Then the object began to come nearer --- now a baseball diameter --- now a grapefruit in diameter.
It seemed to Bertrand that this thing had to actually swing around a tall tree in order to enter the field in which they stood. They were looking just north of east at the time, so whatever it was had been moving about.

Bertrand was so astonished by the severe brightness of the lights as the thing approached, that he thought that there was a chance that they could be burned by them if the thing came right up to them. They turned and ran from it and, in their estimation, the thing stopped at about 100' closest approach. Meanwhile, farm animals and a neighbor's dog were in full distress. Bertrand called for back-up.
The thing then began to move off to the southeast. In five minutes, Officer Hunt got out there and watched the thing continue to move to the southeast, towards Hampton and the sea, for another five. Sometime later, a hysterical man called Hampton police and said that he had been chased by a UFO.
That's a thumbnail with the most significant elements of the case. Note that a distant re-fueling operation seems hardly cogent. Why then would anyone come up with this? It's classic debunker brain-rot. One of the debunkers heard that the angle of the Exeter lights was about 60 degrees, and, since this is the angle which the re-fueling hose dangles, by gum THAT must be it!! Witness testimony? Say no more!! I've heard all that I need to!!!!
I'd like to put this stupidity out of its misery by just noting one clear and dramatic fact. Bertrand and Muscarello were so staggered by the severe brightness of the red light that they thought they were in danger of being damaged by it. Now, how in the hell could anyone say, with a straight face, that this could be caused by a distant airplane operation?? Answer: no one with a properly operating mind and conscience.
And that's where a lot of the truth may lie here. I participate in a football fan board just for some mindless fun. It's my old university and I still like to watch them play [when they win]. Often on that board we get idiots whose "fun" is posting things just to get people riled up. It is a type of soul-dead nastiness which resides in some people. Sick brains who enjoy causing other people stress just for their own ha-ha-ha's. I'm becoming more convinced all the time that this is the big motivator for the majority of debunkers. On the boards we call them "trolls". Ugly morons who "troll" the internet waters trying to hook naive fish with their intellectual worms. On internet boards, these trollers have found that the best trolling is just to invent things bearing little relationship to Truth. Well, fellas, CSICOP beat you to it long ago. They've been scaling to new heights of intellectual dishonesty and un-care for decades. All Hail the "mental" criminals!!!
So, there is Exeter. Still strong after all these years. No USAF vehicles about to nearly burn the witnesses with their brightness. But plenty of skeptical dimness to last a lifetime. If those boneheads actually wanted to try to construct an alternative hypothesis which had a chance, they might expand their universe a bit and bring in the Real trolls to replace ET. At least They might be able to pull the appearances off.
Oh, wait a minute... I said those guys expand their view of the Universe ..... Nevermind.

San Diego announces extraterrestrial-themed county fair

This year’s San Diego County Fair will have an extraterrestrial theme.
According to the press release issued on April 19, the title of the 2012 San Diego County Fair is “Out of This World!” As the name suggests, fair organizers promise an “out of this world” experience “featuring man’s fascination with the world of outer space and the wonder of the universe, as well as the fun and imaginative world of science fiction.” But this extraterrestrial theme goes far beyond space exploration and science fiction.
In addition to displays highlighting various NASA projects, the fair will also reportedly feature UFOs. The press release states, “Open your mind to UFOs! The most notable events of UFOlogy are on display – including Roswell, the mystery of Area 51, and more.” An area dubbed “Area Fifty-Fun” allows visitors to “enter the realm of science fiction, UFOs and other evidence of life beyond earth.” Features include a mock UFO crash site, exploring the mystery of crop circles, and looking into the Mayan Calendar and the 2012 predictions.
The 2012 San Diego County Fair opens June 8, and runs for 24 days (the fair is closed Mondays except July 2). For more information, visit the fair’s extraterrestrial-heavy website at
