Four UFOs Reported Flying over President Trump’s Scottish Golf Course

Are extraterrestrials watching the current president … or at least keeping an eye on his cherished Scottish golf course while he’s away? That’s one of the possible explanations for a report with a photo of four UFOs flying over the Trump Turnberry resort in Ayrshire, Scotland. There are plenty more, although not enough to make a tell-all UFO book … yet.

It was on August 16 at 7:55 pm that the photograph of the alleged UFOs was taken as they appeared to fly or hover over Turnberry, one of the three courses at the resort located on the coast of the Firth of Clyde in South Ayrshire in southwestern Scotland. According to The Scottish Sun, an unnamed (what a surprise) person described as a “golf fan” emailed the picture taken by an equally unnamed relative of his. (See the photo here.)

“My niece was at Trump Turnberry golf course and took a picture of the golf course from the balcony of her room. She emailed the picture because I like to play golf, and when I looked at it closely I saw 4 strange disc shaped objects in the background which she said she had not noticed when taking the picture. Can you help me identify these ufos? Any ideas?”

Trump Turnberry Hotel and golf course

Not surprisingly, there are plenty of ideas since Scotland has a number of famous UFO encounters, the president has seemingly been followed by UFOs before and … “Space Force!” Scotland has the Robert Taylor Incident or Dechmont Woods Encounter (Taylor claimed an attempted abduction), a recent sighting over Kippen (looks like a kite with a flare or sparkler) and a number of them in Bonnybridge, part of the so-called Falkirk Triangle which averages around 300 UFO sightings per year.

During his campaign, then candidate Trump was followed by a UFO while in his helicopter and by two while flying from New York to Washington for his inauguration. And of course, he recently announced plans for a “Space Force” to conduct space warfare, which may or may not include battles with extraterrestrials. The president was not at the golf course on August 18, so the UFOs photographed then were likely not part of a security detail or drones trying to capture pictures — before being shot down by the security detail or the Space Force.

So, what are the UFOs in the golf fan’s photo? The top vote-getter is reflections of interior lights in the window. That’s possible, although the photographer seems to be close enough to the balcony rail to suggest she was outside. Since she didn’t see the UFOs while taking the picture, bugs, birds or lens anomalies are also possibilities.

It’s unlikely that the president will have any comments on the UFOs. Any thoughts on what they might be? Anything that will move the needle which is currently buried at ‘reflections’? Do ETs play golf? Would you welcome ETs at this time? Would the president?

Should he?

Mysterious Rectangular UFO Seen Over North Carolina

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Wait a minute … it’s a giant flat rectangle in the sky. Is it a plain?

A North Carolina man posted photographs on Facebook of what appears to be a giant square or rectangular UFO with lights around its edges hovering over Lake Norman – the 50 square mile manmade lake north of Uptown Charlotte that’s often called North Carolina’s inland sea. Is ET looking for a place to fish, waterski or get a greyish tan?

“I was on my way home with my wife on the speaker phone, and it looked like there was a tornado coming, so I was trying to take a picture of the clouds for my wife. But then I saw something that wasn’t normal and I was, like: ‘Oh my god, what is that?’ I started trying to take as many pictures of it as possible while I was driving.”

 

Although we appreciate the effort, it’s always better to pull off the road before taking UFO pictures. The Charlotte Observer reports that Javion Hill claims he took the photo on the dark and stormy night of August 18. Actually, Hill says he did pull over but the UFO was gone. (On the other hand, his wife was happy he made it home safely.)

If parts of this story sound vaguely familiar, on May 29 of this year, a video made the rounds of what was first said to be a giant UFO traveling over the same Lake Norman. That one was farther away and the daytime photo was blurry, but it caused the usual slurry of UFO fury until Goodyear admitted that it was one of their blimps.

The August 18 photos by Jason Hill are clearer but dark because of the hour and the storm clouds. Since the quadrangular shape doesn’t match a blimp or any other known conventional aircraft, the speculation immediately moved to the experimental military side … and the first name that always pops up in those discussions is the TR-3B, the alleged Black Manta triangular spacecraft that is seen everywhere and confirmed nowhere. That’s entirely possible, since North Carolina has two Air Force bases east of Charlotte. However, the object Hill captured on his phone appears to be rectangular rather than 3-sided and it doesn’t have the one-bright-light-per-corner configuration often seen in alleged TR-3B photos.

What does the only confirmed eyewitness think?

“I was worried for my safety. I didn’t believe in UFOs until that moment.”

Should we? Going back to Hill’s original accounting of the event, he said he was “trying to take a picture of the clouds” for his wife. With his cell phone. Which is rectangular. And could have edge lighting. Going too fast for you? Yes, it’s entirely possible Hill was taking pictures of his phone’s reflection in the window. Or perhaps an illuminated rearview mirror or visor. Remember, It was a dark and stormy night with tornado warnings and Hill was driving. And when he stopped (and possibly rolled down his window), the UFO was gone.

With no other photographs by any other witnesses of the latest Lake Norman hovering UFO, for now the needle on the meter is hovering over “misinterpretation.”

Conspiracy theorists go nuts over pictures that suggest Putin hasn’t changed his appearance in 100 years

  • Photos taken in 1920 and 1941 show two men that look remarkably similar to Russian president Vladimir Putin
  • This has led some to speculate on social media that he is immortal and can time travel
  • Others believe Putin may have sat for Da Vinci when he painted the Mona Lisa, and lived as Vlad the Impaler 
  • None of these above claims have been scientifically proven in any way

A photograph from almost 100 years ago has some on social media convinced that Russian leader Vladimir Putin is immortal.

The Strange Case of Rudolph Fentz: The Man Who Traveled to the Future and Was Run Over (proof of time travel)

In 1950, a man dressed in Victorian fashion appeared in Times Square in New York. According to the witnesses, he seemed a bit confused. No one paid more attention until, a few minutes later, he crossed the avenue and was hit by a car.(The Strange Case of Rudolph Fentz)

The officers who raised the body checked their things to identify it, but what they found seemed to make no sense: a small metal token, valid for a beer, where the name of a hall appeared that nobody, not even the most Old men of the city (who were asked, knew, a receipt for the care of a horse and the washing of a carriage in a barn on Lexington Avenue that did not appear in any address book, certified for about $ 70 in beads Business cards with the name Rudolph Fentz and an address on Fifth Avenue and a letter sent to his address in June 1876 from Philadelphia.(The Strange Case of Rudolph Fentz)

Most intriguing was that, despite their antiquity, none of the objects showed signs of deterioration.Intrigued, Police Captain Hubert Rihm decided to carry out an investigation to untangle the case.

Was This a “Mystery Aircraft” Filmed Over a North Carolina Lake?

A video appearing online recently purports to show a “mystery aircraft” in the distance as it passes over Lake Norman near Charlotte, North Carolina.

The footage, which is at times unreasonably shaky, seems to show a large, dark form moving slowly above Lake Norman in the distance. Unfortunately, the viewer is given a better perspective of the parking lot adjacent to the boat ramp than of the object, which only makes fleeting appearances–despite moving slowly–due to the poor camerawork.

Nonetheless, the footage has managed to gain traction online, after being picked up and featured on Drudge Report and The Daily Star, in addition to several YouTube channels. The footage as it originally appeared online can be seen below:

The footage was obtained by Jason Swing, who allegedly filmed the object with his Smartphone on May 29, according to Mark Price at the Charlotte Observer

“Hey, this is a spacecraft,” a man who appears to be Swing can be heard saying at the beginning of the video, before it shakily turns in the direction of what appears to be an object moving slowly over Lake Norman. Little can be discerned about the shape or size of the object, or the actual distance it might have been from the parking lot where Swing stood while filming it. At one point in the footage, Swing appears to call to someone nearby, seeking acknowledgment that they were able to see the object as well.

It is unclear if the footage was a hoax, or if it was merely intended as a prank (Swing is suspiciously nonchalant as he advises viewers about the “spacecraft” they are about to see at the video’s outset). However, one commenter identified as MrBoomer13 pointed out that Swing’s YouTube channel has featured videos of drones in the past, which might suggest that the object over Lake Norman–if real at all–had simply been a drone.

Still from Swain’s footage, purporting to show a large object moving slowly over Lake Norman, NC (Jason Swain, YouTube).

Others felt there was an even simpler explanation. Joe Browder commented that the object might have simply been a passenger plane:

“Nope. Just a passenger jet coming out of Charlotte Douglas Airport. Flying low (below the cloud deck) on northbound track from airport. See this all the time up there. Look at the tops of the trees and bushes each time the video shows the plane and you see that it is steadily moving left to right. Going to look like hovering and slow movement since it is about 4 miles away.”

The Linville Gorge Wilderness, just two hours away near Linville, North Carolina, is home to purported earthlights that often appear after rainstorms. Known as the Brown Mountain Lights, on many occasions, the lights of distant aircraft flying out of Charlotte Douglas and other airports in the region can be mistaken for lights hovering over adjacent mountain ridges.

It remains unclear what, precisely (if anything) appears in Swain’s video. Had the camera remained still for longer than short bursts of two-second intervals, perhaps more about the object could be discerned. Or for all we know, perhaps there was a legitimate object in the distance, which Swain either wasn’t taking seriously enough to try and do a good job filming, or perhaps was just too excited to keep in-frame.

If you observe something unusual in the sky, some helpful tips that will improve the quality of your footage are as follows:

  1. 1) Attempt to orient the object you are filming in the center of the frame, rather than the parking lot pavement nearby. It may help to try and fit other objects in the frame with the anomaly, as this can help judge size, distance, the rate of speed, etc.
  2. 2) Steady your arm by resting it against a fixture nearby (such as one of the signs in the parking lot you’re standing in). If no such fixture exists, try kneeling and resting your elbow against your knee as your film the object.
  3. 3) Try to remain calm, and breath normally (rather than shouting at others nearby), as this will also help you maintain a steady shot.
  4. 4) Film the unidentified object for as long as you can (instead of cutting away while the object is still plainly visible and proclaiming “I gotta go”).

Sadly, if there actually were anything of interest in this footage, it’s too shaky to be able to discern anything about it. Granted, it is worth noting that the engine noise of what appears to be a conventional commercial airliner can be plainly heard as the object passes over the lake. Hence, while our money would probably have to go with YouTuber Joe Browder and the “passenger jet” theory, the footage above nonetheless offers us a few great examples of what not to do while attempting to film what might be a UFO.

Retired Air Force Nighthawks Conduct Secret Missions Over Area 51

Whenever something strange appears in the airspace over and around Area 51, it’s a cause for questioning, possible concern, potential alarm and occasional panic. What does one make of the appearance of two long-retired F-117 Nighthawk stealth jets, with their distinctive triangular shapes, making both day and night flights, including refueling, over the Nevada desert? Is the military merely exercising them as part of a regular maintenance schedule it claims it puts all old aircraft stored on the base through? Why is it keeping old planes in mission-ready condition? Air shows? Gulf War re-enactments? Tom Cruise movies? Something else?

On July 26, 2018, Youtube user “pdgls” uploaded a video of two F-117 flying from Tonopah Test Range, the first testing grounds for the Lockheed F-117A Nighthawks in 1981 and the major operations center for the top secret aircrafts until it became the major “retirement” storage center for them starting in 2008. The video shows the jets – call signs Night (or Knight) 17 and 19. After what seem to be normal maneuvers. David Cenciotti at the Aviationist blog notes that Night 17 returns to the base while Night 19 changes its callsign to Dagger 17, making some long, low approaches before finally landing.

The Aviationist and other aviation and military blogs reporting on the sighting of the F-117s all seem to agree that the purpose of their flights is a mystery. A previous sighting in 2017 showed a suspicious hump behind the cockpit which some suspected was equipment to convert the jet to an autonomous pilot-less drone. Another theory is they’re testing new stealth gear or stealth sensors for current aircraft. That seems strange – why not test it on the aircraft it’s designed for? A more sinister theory is that the F-117s are pretending to be enemy aircraft to test simulators or perhaps even real response systems, although no other planes were seen in this particular operation.

In our continuing quests to find alien ships or super-secret futuristic military aircraft at Area 51, are we ignoring what’s actually happening there? Is it a good sign or a bad sign that 40-year-old jets are still being maintained and tested there? Are these operations merely a smokescreen? If so, what are they hiding – new technology or the fact that we have no new technology?

Is this the real reason why we’re getting a Space Force?

Mysterious Meteor Explodes Over Base and Air Force Is Strangely Quiet

“Nothing to see here. Move along.”

Does anyone ever believe or follow those instructions anymore? Should you believe and follow them when they come from NASA or the military and concern a bright streaking object that explodes over a remote US Air Force base? That’s the question many are asking after it was reported that something resembling a meteor exploded on July 25th over Thule Air Base in Greenland, home of the 12th Space Warning Squadron and the Ballistic Missile Early Warning System which tracks nuclear missiles fired at the U.S. This occurred on July 25th, yet the news, when it appeared on social media and on various news sites, didn’t come out for almost two weeks. Still think there’s nothing to see and you should just move along?

“Meteor explode[d] with 2.1 kilotons force 43 km above missile early warning radar at Thule Air Base. We’re still here, so they correctly concluded it was not a Russian first strike. There are nearly 2,000 nukes on alert, ready to launch.”

Hans Kristensen, director of the Nuclear Information Project for the Federation of American Scientists, tweeted that on August 1, a week after an explosion over a critical location in the U.S. missile defense system which could have conceivably launched up to 2,000 nukes in response, had it been construed as a nuclear missile. This is not a place where you want a meteor, even briefly, to be mistaken for a missile.

Thule Air Base (Wikipedia)

The Center for Near Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory shows that the object was of an unspecified size and was traveling at 24.4 kilometers per second (about 54,000 mph) at 76.9 degrees north latitude, 69.0 degrees west longitude – putting it directly over Thule Air Base. As with so many of these Near Earth Objects, it was not detected until it was VERY near the Earth … as in exploding overhead. And by ‘overhead’ we mean in the airspace above a critical tracking and warning center for nuclear attacks … one capable of putting up to 2,000 missiles around the world on alert … or more.

“Nothing to see here. Move along.”

Really? In an interview with Task & Purpose, Hans Kristensen described the energy released in the explosion 27 miles above Thule as “very limited” – about the same as a very low-yield nuclear weapon. Sorry, Hans – a nuke is still a nuke, no matter how low its yield, and the world seems to be on a trigger-happy precipice when it comes to diagnosing and responding to such explosions – as evidenced by the tweets, comments and other social media reports.

It’s been nearly three weeks since the event. Does the U.S. military and the U.S. government owe its citizens an answer and an explanation about the strange explosion over the Thule Air Base with its 12th Space Warning Squadron and its Ballistic Missile Early Warning System? In these days of talks about a Space Force and space wars, the answer is a resounding and forceful … and very nervous … “Yes!”.

Police violence, cliques, and secret tattoos: fears rise over LA sheriff ‘gangs’

Investigation faces skepticism amid concerns that groups, linked to a history of attacks on inmates, are resurgent

John Sweeney knew from his four decades as a civil rights lawyer that something about the police shooting of Donta Taylor was off.

Taylor, a 31-year-old African American, had been walking from a friend’s house in Compton to a nearby grocery store one summer night when members of the county sheriff’s department challenged him, gave chase and ended up firing more than a dozen shots at him along a lonely concrete pathway alongside a canal.

Suicidal UFO Cult Starts Feud with Rapper Over Use of Cult Symbols

One of the formative experiences of my childhood which I credit with launching my interest in aerial phenomena and astronomy was the 1997 visit of comet Hale-Bopp. For a few magical weeks, my father would walk me to the end of our street each night where we had a perfect view of the eerie fireball hanging in the night sky. I credit that comet (along with a healthy dose of pop culture) with instilling in the much younger me a sense of wonder about the universe and what might lie unseen just at the edges of our knowledge.

The Hale-Bopp Comet.

For others, the comet represented something else entirely. For a few dozen seekers in California, the arrival of the comet was seen as the coming of a spacecraft meant to take their souls to a new life on some non-terrestrial plane. The only hitch was they would have to commit suicide in order to board this “spacecraft.” Between March 24 and 26, 1997, thirty-nine members of the Heaven’s Gate cult led by Marshall Applewhite asphyxiated themselves with the aid of Phenobarbital-laced applesauce and vodka, believing their souls would then travel to the Hale-Bopp comet/spacecraft en route to a new level of existence. All were found with a five-dollar bill and three quarters in their pockets and were wearing identical black sweat suits and brand new black-and-white Nike Decades.

Not exactly the kind of press Nike looks for. But hey – no press is bad press. But maybe this was bad press.

Whether or not the cultists reached their cult-y space nirvana aboard the comet is anyone’s guess (spoiler alert: they didn’t). Two of the Heaven’s Gate members survived though, choosing not to participate in the suicide pact for unknown reasons. Today, the strange and unfortunate story of Heaven’s Gate has become a recurring topic in pop culture.

Which is why Heaven’s Gate is suddenly back in the news. The two anonymous surviving members of the suicidal UFO cult are currently threatening legal action against trap rap artist Lil Uzi Vert. Lil Uzi Vert (real name Symere Woods) recently released artwork on Instagram for his upcoming album Eternal Atake, featuring a design quite reminiscent of Heaven’s Gate’s keyhole-in-space logo. In response, the two surviving Heaven’s Gate members issued the following statement:

He is using and adapting our copyrights and trademarks without our permission and the infringement will be taken up with our attorneys. This is not fair use or parody, it it a direct and clear infringement.

It turns out Lil Uzi Vert has even changed his Instagram username to “Marshall Applewhite” in the past. Is this merely a case of pop culture appropriation done in poor taste, or has Lil Uzi Vert bought one too many pairs of black-and-white Nike Decades? The courts will decide.

UFOs Over West Virginia Town Remind Many of Mothman

Has the legendary Mothman returned to West Virginia? One might think so with the amount of attention being given to photographs taken in Crum, West Virginia, less than two hours from Point Pleasant, which show an unidentified flying object that could (and apparently do) appear to some to be a flying winged humanoid similar to Mothman. Is it the real deal? Why has one photo gotten so much attention when a similar flying humanoid picture just a few weeks earlier in the same city seems to be ignored? Is Crum becoming a new Mothman or UFO hotspot in West Virginia?

“Was cutting grass in my yard today. Saw a really pretty cloud. Took two pictures of the cloud. Didn’t see anything but the cloud when I was taking the pictures! Afterwards when I noticed the strange black object in both of the pictures!”

That’s the report to MUFON accompanying two photos (see them on MUFON here (upper left, top of cloud) and here (closeup)) taken on the evening of July 25, 2018. The magnified version looks more like an object than a flying humanoid, prompting comments on some sites showing it that it resembles a ship, a kite, a drone or a balloon. On the flying humanoid side, there’s suggestions of Mothman or a human in a flying suit, glider wing or parachute.

Easy to identify close up and in daylight, but can it be mistaken for Mothman at night?

“I was taking pictures of the clouds and sunset in Crum West Virginia around 5:30 pm June 15, 2018. At the time of the photo there was no birds of any kind flying. I didn’t even notice it until later when I was checking my photos. I took dozens of photos that day. And this was the only image with this strange dark looking object in it.”

This photo (see it here) looks more like a flying human but could also be a large bird or a camera anomaly, especially since it reportedly only appeared in one of a series of photos. That could explain why it hasn’t received as much attention as the later photograph.

Why Crum? The southwestern West Virginia town is tiny (population around 182), close to the borders of Ohio and Kentucky and about 100 miles from Point Pleasant. Prior this, its claim to fame is “Crum: The Novel,” a fictional account of life in Crum written by a former resident (Lee Maynard) who was accused of basing it too closely on real people.

Easy to identify close up and in daylight, but can it be mistaken for Mothman at night?

The speculations that these photos might be humans in flying suits or parachutes comes on the heels of an article by Nick Redfern in Mysterious Universe which details how some people believed at least some of the 1966 Point Pleasant Mothman sightings were actually Green Beret parachutists wearing luminous paint in secret training exercises before being sent to Vietnam. Parachuting, parasailing, personal gliders, jet wings and jet packs have come a long way since 1966. Could these new sightings in Crum be something similar?

Crum residents would be wise to keep their eyes on the skies if they want to prove that Mothman or some other flying entity has moved in and they want to capture it, get rid of it or turn it into an annual festival.
