Flurry of UFO Sightings

If visitors from another world have come to Earth, they are certainly taking in a lot of sights.

First, UFOs were spotted in China, causing several airport closures. Then, last week, “they” moved over Manhattan. Now, we have reports of a nighttime display in El Paso, Texas, and Richmond, Va.

Coincidence? Connection? Misidentifications of not-so-unusual objects?

It’s sometimes difficult to keep it all straight as people continue to see and photograph things in the sky that come under the heading — at least temporarily — of unidentified.

So far, no official explanation has been offered for the numerous UFO sightings in China. Officials have tried to determine whether the strange lights posed any threat to the airports that halted service briefly or to planes scheduled to land and take off.

To date, military aircraft or missile tests have been mostly blamed for the sightings.

Last week, unusual high-flying objects were spotted over the Chelsea area of Manhattan. The silvery-colored things escaped both the detection of local airport radar as well as partygoers in northern Westchester County who claimed the UFOs were balloons, intended for an event honoring a teacher’s engagement and that accidentally flew away.

And then, over the weekend, strange lights appeared in the sky over El Paso. Video of the incident clearly depicts a bright object in the night sky that breaks into three separate things that continue to head to the ground.

According to a news report on El Paso’s KTSM-TV, there was an eerie triangular pattern similarity between the New York and Texas encounters. But true “X-Files” believers had the wind knocked out of their alien sails when it was revealed that a weekend air show in El Paso featured a nighttime parachute display by a group called the Golden Knights.

It seemed the most logical conclusion.

Richmond, Va.

While earthbound folks were wondering about the odd lights over El Paso, others were equally confused over what they saw on both Saturday and Sunday nights in Richmond.

A video captured a vivid, triangular pattern of blinking lights over the town that still haven’t been completely explained away.

But, of course, there has to be an explanation — there always is. That’s the nature of things, to try to make the unidentified, well, identified.

The question is: Where will the next batch of UFO sightings occur, because we all know they will.

And what are the chances that one of them — just one of them — may turn out to be the real deal? Undisputed, absolute proof of an extraterrestrial visitation?

  • This is rather interesting, however this issues with these "items" or object breaking into three, actually could easily be caused from an object breaking up and pieces riding in formation, or dovetailing off the wake or shock wave of the first. "Very Common" in objects hitting the atmosphere. Now then with the concept of them stopping, hmm, that's another interesting issue, but it could be a density issue, such as frozen gas, thawing out, still ablaze, and then burning out and disappearing. So, jumping to the old conclusion of UFOs, hmm? I think I'd like to debunct this nonsense right here and now.

    OK, let the doubters have a field day coming up with explanations for these things in the sky. They've been reported many times through history, long before there were air shows, planes, or experimental Air Force things. Many very credible people not given to hallucinations and under pressure to remain silent about them have nevertheless told their stories. I have sighted one myself, in the company of friends, and I can say nothing of earthly origin that I know about could have done what we witnessed that night. I've also seen a remarkable slide show put on by a former member of Operation Blue Book, the Air Force's attempt to debunk UFOs, and there were pictures which could not have been faked and for which there was just no other explanation. Discrepent events, occurrences which don't fit our everyday expectations or scientific explanations do happen. Just because they don't fit makes them no less real.
