Longtime pilot photographs mysterious orange orb in daytime sky over NC mountains
As a 45-year pilot, Charles Cobb had never seen anything like the orange-tinged orb high in the North Carolina mountains sky on a sunny late morning in June.
The object was round and irregular, he said, and it would suddenly plummet tens of thousands of feet before soaring right back up, he said.
Cobb, an 88-year-old Korean War combat veteran, spotted the mysterious object while sitting at Silver Creek Airport in Morganton, where he visits each day to check on the 1940 Piper Cub he keeps in a hangar.
Cobb said he finally pulled out his iPad and took photos of the flying object and its “opaque” center. It was 11:18 a.m. June 12.
“It was hard to tell the size,” he said, although he distinctly recalled the craft dropping at times to maybe 15,000 feet before shooting back up to at least 30,000 feet.
“The fact that it could zoom up almost out of sight” made this no ordinary object, he’s convinced.
The craft also was “flying parallel” during the 15 to 20 minutes he watched it, he said, so it couldn’t have been a comet.
“Comets come toward you,” he said. This object “always pointed north.”
Mysterious lights in night sky baffle Hawaii residents. ‘What in the world is this?’
Mysterious lights flying across the night sky over the weekend baffled Hawaii residents.
While social media was abuzz with speculation of UFOs, scientists think they know what’s responsible.
Kuuipo Kanawaliwali captured video of the lights as they passed under the moon on Saturday night.
“I started videotaping and when they got closer,” Kanawaliwali told KHON, “I start freaking out because I’m like, ‘Oh, what in the world is this?’”
Sheri English also captured video of the lights as they sailed overhead.
“We didn’t know what it was, where it came from,” English told KHON. “It just appeared. It was actually (a) very eerie, eerie feeling.”
John O’Meara, the chief scientist at W.M. Keck Observatory in Hawaii, says the lights were from a Chinese rocket booster used to launch a Venezuelan communications satellite in 2008, Maui Now reported.
“That booster has been orbiting around the Earth, but its orbit has been decaying and eventually decayed enough to get slowed down by the atmosphere and reentered in over the Pacific,” O’Meara told the news outlet. “Space junk falls in all the time. Usually it doesn’t make such a great light show, but in this case we were lucky.”
8,000 metric tons
More than 23,000 orbital debris larger than 10 cm are known to exist.
‘Strange’ UFO spotted at Southend
An unidentified flying object (UFO) over Southend left the man who spotted it feeling ‘very strange’.
The man, an elderly Southend resident, said the sighting from Kiel on October 13 was not prolonged and the apparent movement of the phenomenon couldn’t confirm whether it was several lighted objects or just one object with multiple lights.
He added: ‘We were watching seals on Kiel beach when suddenly I noticed a line of lights, low down but very intense. I’m not particularly a believer in [extra-terrestrial] UFOs but watching those lights made me feel very strange.’
Aliens on 1,000 nearby stars could see us, new study suggests
There are about 1,000 star systems where aliens, if they existed, could be watching us from afar, new research suggests.
Those 1,004 star systems are in a direct line of sight to our planet, and close enough to us that they could not only detect planet Earth, but also chemical traces of Earthly life.
“If observers were out there searching, they would be able to see signs of a biosphere in the atmosphere of our Pale Blue Dot,” Lisa Kaltenegger, a Cornell University astronomer and lead author of the paper, said in a statement.
Within 326 light-years, the researchers found, there are 1,004 with vantage points to spot Earth. Of those, 508 have viewing angles that would give them at least 10 hours of observational data every time Earth passed between that location and the sun — ideal conditions for spotting this little rocky planet and the signs of life in its atmosphere.
“Only a very small fraction of exoplanets will just happen to be randomly aligned with our line of sight so we can see them transit.” said Lehigh University astrophysicist Joshua Pepper, co-author of the paper, in the statement. “But all of the thousand stars we identified in our paper in the solar neighborhood could see our Earth transit the sun, calling their attention.”
