Most of the county has been battered by storms but it appears a motorist in Brentwood was dazzled by something more spectacular in the sky.
Nathan Maher told the Gazette he was driving along the A12 when he spotted some mystery objects above.
Tweeting under the username hegemon 1234, he asked: "What were those silvery objects to the north of brentwood at 4:40pm today?
Were they UFO-like? Or simply brights? Unfortunately he is yet to have received a response - but perhaps you can help. . . .
UFO Religion Wants to Hand Out Pamphlets at Florida Schools Now Too
By Chris Joseph
Earlier this week, we told you about how the Satanic Temple plans on handing out their literature to public school kids in Florida on the heels of an Orange County School Board decision to allow an Evangelical Christian group to hand out Bibles.
And now an international UFO religion wants to get in on that handing out religious materials to school kids action. And, yes, they have a chapter here in Florida.
The religion, known officially as the International Raelian Movement, has announced their support for the decision to allow the Satanic Temple to offer their religious literature in the school district. The group's leader is encouraging Raelian members to now go and do likewise. . . .
UFO NEWS: Passenger spots series of strange lights beside his plane as he flies into Cardiff
What could these lights be?
A plane passenger coming back from holiday was captivated by these strange hovering lights which he watched for several minutes from his plane window as his flight approached Cardiff.
The 29-year old said: "We were flying from Greece to Cardiff. It was on Tuesday night and happened about 20 to 40 minutes before we arrived at 10pm.
"The lights could have been from a few miles away - it was pitch black outside, so it's hard to say what it was.
"It was quite weird. It was very bright, it was the brightest thing I've ever seen. I just realised how bright it was and said to my girlfriend 'look at that!'
"I was staring at it for a while before I picked up my phone to film it, but it was there for about three or four minutes.
"I thought it maybe could have been lanterns, but they didn't go away, they kept flying til I couldn't see them anymore.
"I really have no idea what it could have been - it was just really, really bright.
"UFO is a really broad term. That's what it is, you know, an unidentified flying object." . . .
A baffled reader has sent in this picture which he believes shows a UFO flying over St Helens.
The 39-year-old spotted the object hovering over fields near Sutton at around 7pm on Monday night.
He told the Reporter it appeared to hang in one spot for almost a minute before darting suddenly to the right, then disappearing out of view.
Before the object vanished, the father of two managed to capture this image on his mobile phone.
And he insists it was not a Chinese lantern - or an ordinary aircraft.
“To be honest, before Monday I didn’t have any firm opinions either way but this has changed my mind,” he said. “It has really fascinated me. It just hung there in a way normal aircraft don’t. . . .
UFO NEWS: ‘UFO’ Photographed Over the Skies of Portsmouth (UK)
By Priya Mistry
PEOPLE have spotted a strange flying object in the skies of Portsmouth and believe it could be a UFO
A grey-spherical object has been seen floating around in the sky, and claims it could be a cloud, an airplane or a bird have been shot down by those that have seen it.
Johnny Blackwell, 23, of Trevor Road, Southsea, said: ‘I don’t believe in UFOs, but when I saw this I didn’t know what it was.
‘It didn’t look like a cloud, and it was moving very fast.
‘It was a grey, disc-like shape, which I know sounds like a stereotypical UFO, but that’s what it looked like.
‘I don’t know much about military crafts, but this was very fast-moving and very odd to see.’
Johnny, a television and film production student at the University of Portsmouth, said he saw the object at around 7pm on Tuesday.
Other people have taken to Twitter to talk about the ‘UFO’. . . .

Mars Life? Martian Meteorite Pushing Case For Life
By Marcus Chavers
A fragment of a 1.3 billion year-old Martian meteorite is creating some buzz in the scientific community. No, it’s not quite a UFO touching down and aliens strolling out, but it’s a start. A new study in the journal Astrobiology shows off the finding of a cell-like structure embedded in the meteorite fragment.
The find by UK and Greek scientists also showed the structure once held water, a key building block of life. Researching the meteorite, known as Nakhla, Dr. Chatzitheodoridis discovered the unusual feature embedded in the rock. Teaming up with UK researchers, they were able to uncover the structure.
What does this mean? It bolsters the theory that beneath the surface of Mars, the building blocks of life once existed. It is possible that Mars life formed and evolved over time. Looks like the Curiosity rover has a mission now. . . .
|Easily the coolest weapon on UFO, Sky One [above] was the backup defense against alien spacecraft that made it past the Moonbase interceptors. It was a stubby delta-wing jet fighter launched from an attack submarine called Skydiver.|
The 1960s TV Series U.F.O Predicted Today's Cutting-Edge Military Tech
By Mark Strauss
Yes, this classic show created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson had its share of late-'60s, early-'70s schlock, such as military officers whose mini-skirt uniforms included purple wigs. But U.F.O also had strong characters, nuanced plots and extremely cool technology that, in retrospect, was decades ahead of its time.
For those of you who may be unfamiliar with U.F.O (and, if so, what the hell is wrong with you?), the series is set in the year 1980, when a global organization called S.H.A.D.O. (Supreme Headquarters Alien Defense Organization) is waging a secret war against extraterrestrials who are periodically launching attacks on Earth.
S.H.A.D.O. has constructed a multi-layered defense system (portrayed in the opening credit sequence below) consisting of an early warning satellite, a Moon base that launches Interceptor fighters, a high-speed jet launched from a submarine (Skydiver) and ground-based mobile units.
Mothman Museum lays out evidence for believers and skeptics
By Zack Harold
POINT PLEASANT — Museums are usually reserved for proof.
Their exhibits — whether it’s a taxidermied specimen of some long-extinct animal, a collection of dinosaur bones, a historic document or some famous work of art — are meant to prove the existence of something and preserve those artifacts for future inspection.
Not so with the Mothman Museum, Point Pleasant’s number-one tourist attraction.
There is no Mothman specimen. There’s not even a clear photo of the creature, or any other definitive proof of its existence.
Like Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster, Mothman is a mythic creature that some people adamantly believe is real, even though the larger scientific community does not.
However, the museum does feature several different kinds of “evidence,” such as it is, laid out for visitors to form their own opinions. . . .

Reader Submitted Report
Last night, sept 13,2014 around 7 pm in pagosa springs colorado:
Spotted large and very bright stationary object in light sky
After driving about 30 mins, we drove past hunters on the side of the road that had binoculars and a hunting scope. At that point of time, the lights had turned orange red and through the binocs it looked like a triangle. When the scope came out, it was no longer visible from the naked eye. But this is what I caught from my iPhone camera: (see above)
UFOs Over Asheville, North Carolina
By Reader Submitted Report
I didn't get a picture but I live in asheville nc and today 9/13/14 around 8pm when I was pulled up at a stop light I was gazing into the sky. All of a sudden I saw a series of silver lights that were evenly spaced in the shape of a HUGE boomerang flash very quickly, almost resembling a strobe light. They only flashed once though. My boyfriend saw it too.
