    The group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants the flyswatter in chief to try taking a more humane attitude the next time he's bedeviled by a fly in the White House. PETA is sending President Barack Obama a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, a device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside. "We support compassion even for the most curious, smallest and least sympathetic animals," PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich said Wednesday. "We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals." During an interview for CNBC at the...

    A bright and fast object seemingly "overtook" the International Space Station May 29, according to several witnesses observing from two different states, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness database. The first case was reported from Texas, where a man and two other witnesses were out watching the International Space Station fly over, and then observed this second object - moving at between two and-a-half and three times the speed of the space station. A second group is reporting in from the RMCC Observatory, Mounds, Oklahoma, who say they saw the same event.

    Musicians from such diverse groups as Pink Floyd and Boyzone have joined forces in a last-ditch campaign to halt the extradition to the US of north London computer hacker Gary McKinnon. The family and friends of McKinnon, who has Asperger's syndrome, are hoping that a campaign also supported by well-known names including Terry Waite, Boris Johnson, Sting, Lord Carlile and Jane Asher, will finally bear fruit. Next month, McKinnon is due to have what is likely to be his final legal appearance in a judicial review over the decision of home secretary, Jacqui Smith, to send him to stand trial...

    This up-scale community in western Westmoreland county, just east of Pittsburgh, has been a hot-bed of UFO sightings since last year. Reportings have been coming in on a regular basis over the past couple of months. The most recent report is of yet another event that occurred on May 22. At approximately 4:00 a.m., the witness observed an object moving slowly and just above the treeline in front of their house. The object doesn't appear to be any type of conventional aircraft. The picture at the right is a blown-up still photo of the object photographed with a Sony HDR-XR500V...

    A group of people in Mississippi saw bright lights in the sky, stopped to take some video footage - and then watched a large group of helicopters move into the area, according to witness testimony filed today at the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) database. Their video from May 20 was posted May 21 at YouTube under the screen name jim20201. Are these flares dropped by the military during a training operation with helicopters? Or something more? From the YouTube page: "Around 10:30 a formation of lights sit in the sky as helicopters head for it. And towards the end watch...
  • Did President Kennedy meet extraterrestrials?

    According to claims in a rare video, George Adamski met with President Kennedy at the White House in late 1961 and passed on a letter to him from human looking extraterrestrials. In addition to giving advice on the Cuban missile crisis, the alleged letter also contained an invitation for Kennedy to meet with the extraterrestrials. If Kennedy did attend such a meeting, it may explain why he was certain about human looking extraterrestrial life; made undisclosed trips to Air Force bases to deal with the UFO issue; and why he instructed NASA to cooperate with the USSR on joint space...

    One of the newest energy lobbyists claims he has the answer to climate change: spaceships. The government has in its possession "extraterrestrial vehicles," lobbyist Stephen Bassett said. As in flying saucers. Imagine the power source, he said, behind a 30-foot wide saucer that weighs the same as a tractor-trailer yet hurtles through galaxies at 20,000 miles per hour. > "I hope he's right. Wouldn't it be cool?" said Jerry Taylor, senior fellow and energy analyst with the libertarian Cato Institute. "Good luck to him. Hopefully, the magic energy machine will be coming our way shortly."

    AN office worker was left spooked after recording this incredible video of a UFO flying over Bristol. Terrified Andy Hadlington witnessed the mysterious triangular-shaped object silently hovering above a residential neighbourhood in the West Country city on Sunday evening. The video shows the spinning grey object gliding around the village of Knowle — without making a sound. Freaky UFO experts have been clambering to verify the sighting and are hoping to speak to more witnesses and views of the eerie episode. Computer game writer Andy, 36, said: ”It was the freakiest thing I have ever seen in my life. I...

    We didn't get a lot of rain Sunday, but the stuff that fell, fell hard. And it brought an unusual sight in Bedford County in the Forest area. We're not really sure exactly how this happened. They are strange formations, and a lot of people are trying to figure out what caused them. A lot of them have answers of their own. And, no- most of them aren't what you're probably thinking. It's a small farm, about 12 miles outside the city and, overnight, the unexplainable happens. Let's just get this out of our system up front: it's not aliens,...

    WASHINGTON What does the U.S. government really know about UFOs and other unexplained phenomena? That's what Larry Klayman's Freedom Watch organization wants to know. And the group has filed Freedom of Information Act requests with the Central Intelligence Agency, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the Department of Defense, the National Security Agency and the U.S. Air Force in an effort to find out. In addition, the group wants to see files on unexplained atmospheric phenomena and documents that would provide evidence of non-terrestrial technology and intelligent life. "It has long been surmised that government intelligence agencies have for years been covering...

    A student was left shocked when she checked her tourist snaps of the London skyline - and spotted what looks like a flying saucer. University Of Exeter academic Karolina-Slavka Mueller was in London for the weekend, when she took some shots with her camera phone of the sights. But when she looked back at the January 19 night time pictures of Tower Bridge and the London Eye, she was shocked to see an apparent UFO. And experts claim it is the real thing. Karolina said in an email: "What's very strange about this is the fact that we didn't actually...

    As more Russians purchase mobile telephones and consequently more people carry photographic and filming devices greater numbers of images of the mysterious craft or UFOs that have been seen in Russian skies for decades are brought to the worlds attention. This craft (footage below) was filmed above Moscow on 25 April of this year by one mobile phone user. This UFO footage is creating a stir on Russian conspiracy websites and forum participants are split between thinking it is an alien craft, a secret government project or a private experimental plane. All agree that it is too large to be...

    On the morning of Friday the 24th of April of this year employees at MeteoSwiss (Switzerland’s meteorological department) got the surprise of their lives. Huge circular fields hovering over Switzerland were picked up by their radars (picture above). The blue coloured circles covered the entire country. The question was asked as to whether a massive UFO was in the upper-atmosphere above the scenic mountainous nation or perhaps these circles were signs of an imminent hurricane. Meteorologist at MeteoSwiss claimed the circles were not UFOs or the signs of a hurricane about to wreak havoc on his country. Mr Schacher told...

    A possible UFO sighting, as reported by the Journal of Scientific Exploration, date unknown. (Reuters) Something's out there. Just ask the 14 seemingly respectable and sane men gathered in a conference room two blocks from the White House. All say they've had a close encounter of the extremely unsettling kind. Conspiracy theories about UFO sightings and aliens are hardly new, but now it's a multinational group of apparently sane airline pilots and former government officials that is alleging an international cover-up of alien sightings. Members of the group have gathered in the US capital this week to talk about the...

    Fifty years ago sightings of the Loch Ness Monster or ‘Nessie’ were common and few Scottish locals doubted the presence of an exotic water creature in their locale which might have been the last living member an isolated relic Plesiosaur population. Sightings of Nessie have decreased over the last few years and extensive and thorough scanning of the Loch Ness by scientists and researchers have failed to produce any evidence of Nessie. This has led many to believe, sadly, that this gentle, secretive creature had passed on. Now, astonishingly, frequent sightings are being reported of a creature living in the...

    Hans Holzer, whose investigations into the paranormal took him to haunted houses all over the world, most notably the Long Island house that inspired “The Amityville Horror,” died on Sunday at his home in Manhattan. He was 89. The death was confirmed by his daughter Alexandra Holzer. Mr. Holzer — who wrote more than 140 books on ghosts, the afterlife, witchcraft, extraterrestrial beings and other phenomena associated with the realm he called “the other side” — carried out his most famous investigation with the medium Ethel Johnson-Meyers in 1977. Together they roamed the house in Amityville, in which a young...

    TWO mysterious crop circles have appeared on ancient burial sites near Swindon. The crop circles were spotted by Stuart Dike, 40, a crop circle enthusiast. The first appeared on April 14 just outside Avebury and is a circular shape with concentric rings inside it. Mr Dike said was about 120ft in diameter and was on an ancient burial ground. He said: “This crop circle was very consistent with previous ones because they are always associated with ancient sites. “It provided a very nice start to the season.” The second one turned up five days later, just down the road from...

    Rain is pelting down on Dońa Porcela's treatment room in Puerto Cabezas, the main town on Nicaragua's Northern Caribbean coast. The room is barren except for a few plastic chairs, a wooden table and some old plastic bottles balanced precariously on timber beams. Dońa Porcela is a respected traditional healer here and the bottles are filled with her secret medicinal potions. Her patient today is a teenage girl asleep on a piece of cardboard, serving as a mattress on the dirt floor. "Grisi Siknis turns people into witches and they go crazy," she said. Last year there were 65 cases...
