Black Triangle Reported Over Columbus, Ohio

0

MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) has received a report alleging that a UFO was flying over the Columbus/Westerville area of Ohio on the evening of January 18th, 2015.

According to the woman who filed the report with MUFON, at approximately 7:15 pm, she received a text from her 11-year-old son, who lives with his father in Westerville, Ohio. The boy claimed that he could see a “meteor” above his father’s house. Curious, the woman, who lives in Columbus “about 20 minutes” from Westerville, went outside to see if she could see anything herself.

Sure enough, the woman reporting being able to see what she described as “a very bright, rapidly blinking light hovering in the SE sky.” She said the object appeared to be pulsating “in what looked like red, green, and white lights.”

When it came to movement, the woman was able to discern that the object was moving in a Northeasterly direction, towards her home, although it was moving very slowly. In fact, the woman remarked that after looking at the object for close to 45 minutes, it had still yet to cross over house. At approximately 8:00 pm, “a heavy cloud bank rolled in” and the woman lost sight of the object. She did manage to take several photos with her cell phone, though:

The report ends with the woman stating that “after checking out the pictures and zooming in”, she realized “this was most likely a UFO.”

If you have seen something similar, you are asked to notify MUFON.

Concerning the photos the woman submitted, with all due respect, the first image has to be the smallest photo I have ever seen attached to one of these reports. What you’re looking at above is the full size image! I tried running it through software to bring the image out some more, but even a simple “zoom” on this pic turns it to pixellated mush. So sorry, nothing much to see here. 

When it comes to the second image, while it’s much larger, it’s still hard to see anything. I assume the UFO is the small green object towards the left of the frame (above), but it’s still too far out there to really see anything:

So how about it, Columbus area: see anything weird in the sky last night? if you did, I want to know about it! Of course, let MUFON know, too, but don’t forget about your ol’ strange and spooky pal here!

UFO Reported Over Payne, Ohio

1

Well, well, well, 2015 is certainly starting off strange and spooky here in Ohio, isn’t it? First, we end 2014 with a 7-foot “alien” running across the road in Southern Ohio and now this: a report of a UFO shooting across the skies of Northwest Ohio.

According to a report filed with MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) on January 5th, a gentleman was driving to his home in Payne, Ohio on Friday evening (January 2nd). The report states that approximately “8 miles outside of town”, he noticed a bright white light in the sky, coming from the direction of Payne. When he pointed it out to his wife and asked what it was, she replied that she thought it was an airplane.

As they drove closer to the object, they were able to determine that it was not an airplane and in fact was not moving. It was simply hovering in the sky, approximately 1000 feet in the air. They were able to get to within “2 football fields” of the object, at which point the man rolled down his window and was able to take a few photos:

As he was taking the photographs, the man noted that the object was not making any noise at all. According to the witness, the object then began moving “slowly at first and then accelerated to a speed well over 300 miles an hour as it disappeared from our view within 30 seconds or so.”

Anyone with additional information is asked to contact MUFON…but make sure you fill me in, too!

Are UFOs Flying Over Ohio…And My Back Yard?

2

This story has started popping up on various “alternative” news sites and is starting to spread. Seems that some time towards the end of last month, Greenville, Ohio residents starting noticing something strange in the night sky around 9:45 pm. One resident, John Maisel, stood outside with 20 or so of his neighbors, watching the weird lights darting around. As they  stared, the lights grew brighter and then disappeared, only to reappear seconds later. Maisel finally thought to take out his phone and start filming. Over 10 minutes later, he was still filming. Here’s a couple of screen grabs of what he captured on video:

The grabs don’t really do the videos justice; these lights really do jump all over the place So check out the videos here (they’re not letting me embed them on my site, for some reason).

Now here comes the really weird bit: I’ve seen these very same lights, flying over my house. Really! In fact, I’ve seen them numerous times during the month of April. Like a dozen times! It’s not every night, but when they show up, it’s usually around 12:15 am. The first time I saw one of the lights, I was laying in bed watching TV when one appeared right outside the window.

MetroParks of Butler County’s April Fools Joke Angers the Internet

0

On April 1st, 2014, an article appeared on cincinnati.com, reporting an alleged close encounter at the Voice of America Park in West Chester. According to the article, a man, “who wished to remain anonymous”, was driving southbound on Butler Warren Road around 1:30 am when he noticed something strange “near the park’s new athletic fields.”

The man decided to pull over to take a closer look. As he exited his car, he was shocked to see several “workers” around what appeared to be some sort of strange craft. Those workers, upon being spotted by the man, scrambled into the craft, which began to make strange noises before it “disappeared completely.” The man was able to snap a single photo with his cell phone before the craft disappeared. That photo, shown below, accompanied the newspaper article (the text is also from the original article).

The man said he waited several days before coming forward and reporting the incident to Butler County Park rangers, who were now “investigating” the whole thing. Spoooooky!

To be honest, I didn’t make it all the way through the cincinnati.com article before I began smiling. I knew it was all a joke as soon as I saw the photograph of the “strange object”, which is actually a house in Carlisle, Ohio. Known locally as Futuro or, my personal favorite, the Mating UFOs House. It’s actually become quite the roadside attraction over the years.

Now, you’d be forgiven if you didn’t recognize the Mating UFO House because you’re  either not from the area or you’re not like yours truly, who enjoys hunting down bizarre roadside attractions like this house. Case in point, I dragged my wife, daughter, and father-in-law to go see it just last year:

But where you really can’t be forgiven for is reading this story on APRIL FIRST and not at least pausing for a second to allow your morning caffeine to kick in before taking to the InterWebs and lashing out at everyone and anyone. But that’s just what happened in Southern Ohio on this April Fool’s Day.

Almost as soon as the article was posted, people were angrily posting comments about how “fake” the whole thing was. Not that it was part of an April’s Fool Day joke, mind you. Rather, that we, as full-blooded tax-paying Americans, were being duped into believing that UFOs had landed. And that’s what makes this joke so perfect; people fell for it!

One commenter, who actually identified the Futuro House (even adding a “duh” at the end of her post), still apparently missed that it was a joke because her post implied that she thought park rangers really were investigating the whole thing. In fact, she was so angry that she went so far as to ask the Powers That Be to please “stop wasting taxpayers’ money by using rangers’ time on this”.

One gentleman’s post was so funny that I just had to include it here in its entirety (typos and all):

Like ALL the other BS pics of UFO’s and Sasquatch. This is just out of the light or too dark, or fuzzy or…… with all the camera’s out there, still not ONE really good picture. All fakes. How else could the thriving media business of ghosts and all the rest make any money? Facebook is alive with other crap cures and phony claims. Time to put on my suit and sneak around the woods.

Can’t you just feel the anger in his words? I mean, this silly April Fools joke got so stuck in this guy’s craw that he actually took the time to log onto his Facebook account in order to leave his scathing message before dashing off to put on his “suit and sneak around in the woods.” My guess is that the suit he’s referring to is either an alien costume or perhaps a Bigfoot one. Well, either that, or he just some sort of weird stalker guy who simply enjoys formal wear.

But the best part of all this was that one guy took the time to create a YouTube video specifically about “busting this hoax”. Now, the guy who created the video is my kind of guy: he specializes in “underground world news” and has video posts of all sorts of things like conspiracy theories, False Flag attacks, and even the Illuminati (it’s like we’re kindred spirits or something).  So he should be used to reading about all sorts of weird stuff , the bulk of which is BS. So why, on April 1st, of all days, not hold back a couple of hours and wait to see if Cincinnati.com posted the obligatory “April Fools!” note later in the day (which they did) before proclaiming the whole thing a “hoax” and intimating that people were reporting things without looking into them thoroughly by stating “if any of them are any type of news crew, they would know the truth behind this.”

To be sure, this was not a hoax. Nor was it simply an April Fools joke. It was actually a bit of guerrilla marketing designed to make people aware of the fact that there were new athletic fields available at Voice of America Park. And it worked brilliantly. If you read the original article, not only were people made aware of Voice of America Park and their new athletic fields, but they even gave the name of the street the park is located off of. And if people still thought the story was real and decided to drive out to the park, they were greeted by several blow-up aliens near the front entrance, posed around a sign about the new athletic fields.

So see? Nothing to be angry about here. Just a MetroPark using April Fools Day as an opportunity to raise awareness about a new feature at one of their parks. No alien invasion. No conspiracy. No waste of taxpayers’ money…unless, of course, you want to take issue with a park ranger getting paid to blow up a couple of alien-shaped inflatables.

But you know, I did see something weird on the news the other night that I think might be a hoax. This guy had a picture of a Sasquatch that looks too good to be true. It’s my expert opinion that this is a hoax and that some major corporation is behind it all. I just don’t know what their End Game is…yet. I am suddenly hungry, though.

Cincinnati UFO Was Just A Skydiving Team

2

For a few days, it was believed that Southern Ohio was being invaded by aliens from another world. Turns out it was just your average group of Earthlings, engaging in a little nighttime parachute jump…with some pyro.

On Friday, September 29th, a person who goes by the YouTube name galuyasdi, posted two videos of what appeared to be three bright lights in the sky. According to the video description, galuyasdi was returning home from work Friday night when he pulled into a Cincinnati Wal-Mart parking lot, where he and his family (along with several other bystanders) witnessed the lights in the sky. Galuyasdi took one of the videos with his cell phone while the other video was filmed by his daughter, who also used her cell phone.
