Even claims of 'earth lights' after earthquake events are total speculation. At least ball lightning has been replicated in the lab.
Not entirely correct. Earthquake lights are now generally accepted as a genuine phenomenon, as is ball lightning. The "ball lightning" produced in labs so far only vaguely resembles the phenomenon reported. For example, in the lab, a sustained energy source in the form of microwaves is required.

Is there a link to scientific Earthlight investigation?
There are plenty of links in the Credible Anomalies Napster

The MOD releases more ufo files:

Other cases include the description of a black inverted boomerang-shaped UFO by two experienced air traffic controllers at Heathrow. The sighting, from the airport's control tower on the morning of 17 December 1992, came a week after numerous witnesses in Louth, Lincolnshire, reported seeing three lights attached to a large, triangular craft.

...

The most intriguing incident involving such a craft occurred at 9pm on 4 August 1990, at Calvine, a remote hamlet near Pitlochry in Scotland. According to the brief details released by the MoD, witnesses saw a diamond-shaped UFO hovering for about 10 minutes before it disappeared upwards at high speed. During the incident, Harrier jump jets were seen making a number of low-level passes. Colour photographs reveal both the UFO and at least one of the jets.

I wonder if the pics of the diamond ufo are online somewhere.

This story is breaking as if a credible report. It is a bit hard to tell at this point so I am posting for tracking purposes. If anyone has good information supporting or debunking this report, please post it.

Scientists at the Purple Mountain Observatory in Nanjing are reported to have confirmed that they filmed a UFO during the eclipse for 40 minutes. They say that they will spend the next 12 months studying the footage before drawing any conclusions....

There are so many bogus internet news sources these days that it is getting harder and harder to pick out any potentially credible reports.

The Telgraph is a conservative paper in the UK - its report ought to be accurate, that says nothing, of course, about the nature of the observations at the Purple Mountain observatory.

After so many years of credible reports, I do not see how all of them can be dismissed as illusions or delusions. I resist the alien visitation hypothesis. I am, however, curious if transient dimensional rifts are a plausible explanation. It would also explain other paranormal events. Who knows, perhaps it is alien technology attempting to communicate with us.

I was referring to the number of Google hits I get every day from crackpot sources. When I first started using it, the biggest problem with the Google alerts was that I was notified about everything the rock group UFO was doing, but now there are probably dozens of pseudo news services putting out tons of garbage.

I'm pretty excited to see "I Know What I Saw" airing October 4 on the History Channel. It will feature the most credible UFO cases and witnesses from around the world.

Here's the trailer:



Here's a promotional segment from Larry King Live:

Out of the Blue was pretty good. The Peter Jenning's special was accurate, AFAIK, but had no depth. The UFO hunters shows are mostly garbage and the guy who runs them is a complete nut, imo. He is the classic UFO crackpot who sees conspiracies and intervening aliens behind every shadow.

We do have some good documentaries cited in the UFO Napster, but many links are dead. Optional links can be found with a search in most cases.

Thanks for the alert, KPax. I will certainly watch. But as Dave said, these days, most shows about this subject are hyped, sloppy, and sometimes downright dishonest. Perhaps this one will be better.

An aside: Recently I happened to watch Close Encounters. While watching, I suddenly noticed a brief close-up of Hynek. I couldn't believe that after all of these years I never knew he was actually in the movie. Funny!
