CCTV Orb UFO Analyzed and Enhanced (Video)

By Tom Rose

A UFO video caught on a CCTV security camera in December, 2011 has been re-posted to YouTube with the pertinent frames enlarged and enhanced. But it still doesn't answer the question: what is it?

The video shows a nighttime view with a cam focused on an area of trees. Why this scene needs a security camera is not addressed, but this enlargement probably crops out a parking lot or some other area of business which needs to be monitored.

As the action unfolds, two bright saucer-shaped orbs fly past the lens at a downward angle. The unidentified flying objects are pearly white, rounded, and seem to be emanating their own light source.

They don't look like any known aircraft or any kind of living creature, such as a moth or other flying insect. They are also obviously as large as the treetops they fly over.

A curious effect which can be noted is the way the trees become illuminated as the UFO passes by. No insect is able to do that. Only aircraft can, and these objects don't resemble anything known to fly. So, what is it? Here's the video:

UFO's Over Russia: Massive sightings light up St. Petersburgh's skies

St. Petersburgh, Russia, and the city is still abuzz after a peaceful invasion of the skies on April 9, 10 and 11 was witnessed by multiple citizens. Numerous videos have surfaced, showing what appeared to be an enormous mothership, which could be seen floating above the city at night. Brightly lit orbs joined the ship, or were seen breaking off from it, and floating across the skies. This phenomenon continued for three days and three nights.
The event is destined to go down in history as one of the most important and significant sightings of the century, not only because of the clarity and duration of these sightings, but also because of the numerous witnesses and videotapes of the event.

Russian news media covered the story of these bright twinkling lights in the sky, reporting however that the army claimed that these lights were training exercises, a story which was immediately debunked.

Watch this amazing compilation of videos captured by residents of Russia's St. Petersburgh, a city that was treated to a very special kind of lightshow this month.



'Avengers' aliens are shapeshifting reptilians? (Video)

By Robbie Graham

Marvel’s The Avengers has previewed to high praise from critics, currently scoring an impressive 96% at RottenTomatoes.com.

Empire Magazine calls the movie “A joyous blend of heroism and humour that raises the stakes even as it maintains a firm grip on what makes the individual heroes tick.” Empire does have some minor complaints about The Avengers, however. One of which is that:

“The alien army... are very throwaway, bland types who serve as little more than intergalactic cannon-fodder. Yes, they’re from the Marvel universe (we won’t name them, but they’re not who has been rumoured [the Skrulls]), but they display very little in the way of unique abilities.”

Empire’s unwillingness to name the alien race matters not, though, as the movie’s director, Joss Whedon, spilled the beans himself at a press conference earlier this month, revealing that “The alien race are the Chitauri — or a version of them.”

According to Marvel Database, the Chitauri – which exist as part of the Ultimate Marvel universe – are:
a shapeshifting alien species who have attempted to conquer the Earth, most notably during World War II and again in the early 21st century... The Chitauri were able to mimic human form and absorb human knowledge, apparently by ingesting the bodies or brains of the humans they imitated.”
The Marvel Database further states of the Chitauri “claim to be part of ‘the immune system of the Universe’, wiping out disorder and free will wherever they find it.”
Interestingly in the context of UFOlogical conspiracy theory, when in their true form, the Chitauri “appear to be large, and reptilian.” They prefer to “act behind the scenes, mimicking and influencing the social and military methods of the species they are currently infiltrating. For example, they aided the Nazis in their attempt at world conquest by providing them with the technology to create a nuclear bomb carried by an intercontinental ballistic missile.”
Naturally, for the UFO buff, this calls to mind theories surrounding alleged reptilian beings described in numerous abduction accounts, and also the popular idea that these “reptoids” have long played a hidden part in humanity’s political affairs.

It is notable that the Chitauri have also attempted to quietly conquer Earth using “long-term methods of manipulation such as will-inhibiting drugs in many nations' water supplies, influencing the media, and R.F.I.D. (Radio-frequency identification) microchips to be implanted in schoolchildren, among other means.”
How much of the Chitauri’s comic book mythology has actually been incorporated into the upcoming Avengers movie remains to be seen. But if Empire’s “bland cannon fodder” comments are anything to go by then, it would seem, not very much. Also, the Chitauri as shown in the movie’s trailers (see above) and as represented in toy form (see right) do not appear overtly “reptilian.” But then, perhaps we’ve yet to see them in their true scaly form. All will be revealed when Marvel's The Avengers hits cinemas on May 4. In the meantime, if you’re hungry for more insight into the movie’s production, here’s 20 minutes of on-set footage...

UFOs: The Project Beta Scandal

Many people unacquainted with the complexities of the UFO puzzle assume that all talk of attempts by “the government” to silence certain players in the field is nothing but outright paranoia and lies. Even within Ufology there are those who dismiss such stories as X-Files-like nonsense. How wrong they all are. Published in 2005, Greg Bishop’s book, Project Beta: The Story of Paul Bennewitz, National Security, and the Creation of a Modern UFO Myth, provided the field of UFO research with what was without doubt one if its most important contributions in years.
The subject matter of Project Beta was an unusual one; and while seasoned researchers were already aware of certain aspects of this dark and ultimately tragic affair, those unaccustomed to the events in question might have been forgiven for thinking that they had stumbled upon a high-tech, X-Files-meets-Robert Ludlum-style thriller. But Project Beta told a very real story – one that was as harrowing as it was informative.

In essence, the truth-is-stranger-than-fiction book related the saga of physicist Paul Bennewitz, who, after digging into Air Force and National Security Agency secret projects at Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico in the late 1970s that he believed were connected to the activities of sinister extraterrestrials and UFOs, was put under deep surveillance by the US military and intelligence services, and was bombarded by the murky world of officialdom with a mass of disinformation, faked stories and outright lies in order to divert him from his research – which worked. In fact, it worked rather too well, and led to the mental and psychological disintegration of Bennewitz.
While everyone with an interest in UFOs should read Greg Bishop’s book, it will not please all – particularly those who are of the opinion that aliens inhabit underground

bases in the United States, that cattle mutilations are the work of sinister extraterrestrials, or that the rumors of government-alien collusion have a firm basis in reality. As Greg skillfully demonstrated, many of the cornerstones upon which today’s ufological lore are built, had their origins in the fertile minds of military intelligence and the behind-the-scenes, spook-brigade.
Much of the UFO “truth” fed to the research community by purported and sympathetic insiders and whistleblowers might not be “out there” after all. It may all be one big con behind which a veritable plethora of classified, military projects have been hidden – and, in the Bennewitz caper, projects specifically focused upon NSA communications systems, test flights (and possibly crashes) of early, prototype Stealth aircraft, and Air Force technologies designed to track the orbital movements of space satellites launched by the former Soviet Union.

As Project Beta skillfully revealed, Bennewitz had come to the conclusion that the collective operations described above were related to the activities of extraterrestrials, when in reality the truth was far more down to earth, although most certainly not in a mundane fashion. The book demonstrated that the Intelligence community cared not a bit that Bennewitz thought that their secret operations were UFO-related – precisely because the UFO connection was one of Bennewitz’s own making.
However, there was deep concern on the part of the world of officialdom that by digging into classified activities at Kirtland in search of UFOs, Bennewitz would inadvertently reveal – to the Soviets, in a worst-case scenario – information and technology that had to be kept secret at all costs, even if those costs included Bennewitz’s own sanity.
And so a plan was initiated: Having learned the essential parts of Bennewitz’s theories – very ironically from the man himself, by actually breaking into his home while he was out and checking his files and research notes – that aliens were mutilating cattle as part of some weird medical experiment; that they were abducting American citizens and implanting them with devices for purposes unknown; that those same aliens were living deep underground in a secure fortress at Dulce, New Mexico; and that we were all very soon going to be in deep and dire trouble as a direct result of the presence of this brewing, intergalactic threat, the Air Force gave Bennewitz precisely what he was looking for – confirmation that his theories were all true, and more.
Of course, this was all just a carefully-planned ruse to bombard Bennewitz with so much faked UFO data in the hope that it would steer him away from the classified military projects of a non-UFO nature that he had uncovered. And, indeed, it worked.

When Bennewitz received conformation (albeit carefully controlled and utterly fabricated confirmation) that, yes, he had stumbled upon the horrible truth and that, yes, there really was an alien base deep below Dulce, the actions of the Intelligence community had the desired effect: Bennewitz became increasingly paranoid and unstable, and he began looking away from Kirtland (the hub of the secrets that had to be kept) and harmlessly towards the vicinity of Dulce, where his actions, research, and theories could be carefully controlled and manipulated by the Government.
As long-time watchers of the ufological research scene will be aware, American Intelligence even brought Bill Moore (co-author with Charles Berlitz of the 1980 book, The Roswell Incident) into the scheme and asked him to keep them informed of how their disinformation operations against Bennewitz were working. In return, Moore was promised – and provided with – data and documents on super-secret, official UFO projects, crashed saucers, dead aliens, and more.
After informing a shocked and outraged audience at the 1989 Symposium of the Mutual UFO Network with the details of his involvement in keeping the Intelligence community informed of how their disinformation campaign against Bennewitz was working, Moore largely retired from the UFO scene. Similarly, the official disinformation operation that targeted Bennewitz resulted in his hospitalization, after he was driven to a near-complete mental collapse. This may have been the full intent all along: to crush Bennewitz, and to keep Moore busy chasing similar officially created lies and half-truths about UFOs.
You think officialdom won’t do whatever may be deemed necessary in the name of national security? Read Project Beta and you’ll almost certainly find yourself changing your mind – drastically so, too…

Donut-shaped UFO Caught on Video over New York

By Ufo Casebook

UFO ImageEast Hampton, New York 04-07-12
I am sending three videos. One is from 4:00 AM, April 7, 2012, the others from April 11. This object seemed to respond in its appearance after I flashed it with my LED flashlight, and changed direction.
It was originally heading from east to west, but then changed direction and headed south after it "glowed intensely" until it disappeared.
I did not change the focus or any other settings, as you can see the stars remain the same before, during and after the orb glowed brightly.
The strange thing about this object was that it had a hole in the center, which can be clearly seen in my video. It makes it appear like a donut.

(Editor's Note: We are posting only one of the videos, which is by far the best of the lot.)
