Triangle UFO Witnessed Over Southwest Fort Worth, Texas
MUFON CMS - Fort Worth, Texas - unedited: The sighting occurred over my southern facing home in southwest Fort Worth near Benbrook Lake in the early morning hours at 7:45 AM Central Standard Time on December 10, 2010 (I confirmed the date and time by reviewing my text message to a friend with whom I shared the experience). I was rolling out the garbage bins for Friday morning Pick-up and the triangular shaped craft, with 3 soft glowing well defined lights beneath, was moving very slowly at a diagonal from my right to the left with no sound. I am accustomed to seeing aircraft which originate from or travel toward Carswell, AFB; however, this craft was on a trajectory outside of the usual flight paths I've witnessed.
The shape of the craft was distinguishable as a dark silhouette against the background of the early morning sky, and the 3 equally proportioned lights were the dominant feature. At a higher altitude, there was a military fighter aircraft too small to identify, but was still audible. I watched for about 2 minutes, as the craft grew closer and eventually passed directly overhead. I looked to my left and saw a neighbor in the car about 3 houses down; however, this person was not a co-witness. I remained in place and continued to watch. In the time I looked left again, toward my neighbor's moving car, the craft disappeared in a blink. My initial thought was that in a clear blue sky, I should be able to reacquire the craft, as there was no way a conventional aircraft could have disappeared so suddenly. The sky was cloudless, my view was unobstructed. I was unable to take a picture at that moment, but have discovered a photo that fits the description, the time of day and similar weather conditions under which I witnessed the UFO.
Light Anomaly / UFO in Michigan
MUFON CMS - unedited: It was dec 14th a typical cold mich night i came outside to meet a family member who was dropping off a down payment for a T-shirt order i do costume Designs and i while i stood outside waiting for them to pull up i noticed a really fast object to my right darting by in the sky i thought it was odd something like a shooting star etc not sure because it shoot by so fast so it caught my attention and made me extremely alert and I immediately began to comb the night sky in search for anything strange or sudden movements etc, it wasn't alot of stars visible that night but a few none the less so as i was doing my observation another object caught my eye it appeared to be a bright star much more brighter then anything else in the night sky besides the moon is much smaller then the moon, so as i paid closer attention to that particular object which i assumed was a star i noticed it starting to flicker and make some slight movements and change colors from bright white to a darker blue then a reddish color so i was shocked and excited by my discover and i waited and watched this object about another 2 mins before for my family member pulls up and i proceeded to observe this object as i walked from my front yard where i was standing to the drive way about 10-15 feet from where i was standing in my yard i got in his car got the down payment and instructions for his T-shirt order all while keeping a close eye on this object. i was in the car talking and watching the night sky for about 3-5 mins then i departed from his vehicle and to my surprise the object which appeared to be a bright star changing colors and making slight movements up and down was still visible from my yard so i rushed into the house grabbed my video recorder and came back outside this time i approached the drive way to get a better angle and clear shoot with my camera and then proceeded to start shooting as much as i could. now at this point im outside standing in the freezing mich weather filming what i thought was a strange star and it wasnt till after i zoomed in closer on the object i was able to witness something i never seen before in my life. now this bright star had morphed from one bright light into two distinct points of light two different colors and they started to make movements like two orbs colliding and dividing separating and joining again changing patterns and growing in size. i observed the erratic activity for several mins then something else stranger began to happen the one star or orb multiplexed and grew from two points of ligt to 3 then 4 then ultimately 8 to 12 different orbs was seen at one time or another they increased in colors as the patterns and movements became more rapid and more complex in directions they all seemed to move as one unit flashing and changing colors and and going from one to several at speeds of light they would move so fast and jump out of frame and then come back into my frame even when i tried to zoom out i could only see one object that appeared to be flickering then when i zoom in again it would start to build up and make more balls of light or multiply in size and grow bigger and became more evasive in this movements it seemed precise and deliberate all tho i couldn't determine what i was actually filming it was definitely rare and unique to me i stayed and observed it for around 15 mins or so before the freezing cold forced me inside to retreat. i went inside to warm up and charge my battery and decided to go back outside after around 20 mins or so and captured similar activity in segments of 13 15 mins for a total of 40 mins to a hour the object was visible around the 4th segment of me coming back out to capture more footage it moved out the reach of my cam and i wasn't able to record anymore. im attaching a few still shoots from the actual video footage and a link to some of the video footage i up loading to youtube i also have more footage if your interested. let me know im curious to have a expert analyze my recording and get some answers.
NOTE: I've seen similar sighting images before...possible RC device / helicopter or a light on a stick? This one is very questionable...Lon

Triple Sun Phenomenon Over China
itn - An astronomical phenomenon that appears to show three suns appears above Changchun, the capital city of Jilin Province in northeast China. Two smaller suns appeared on either side of the sun, with a strong light on top.
The smaller twins were about one-tenth of the size of the sun. Together with the bright light, they formed a round, rainbow-like aura around the sun.
Experts said that such a phenomenon is called "phantom sun", which is an optical refraction in the atmosphere. In winter, the clouds are formed by ice crystals and they are relatively higher in the sky than in summer.
Mona Lisa landscape location mystery 'solved'
telegraph - Carla Glori believes that a three-arched bridge which appears over the left shoulder of the woman with the enigmatic smile is a reference to Bobbio, a village which lies in rugged hill country south of Piacenza, in northern Italy.
Her theory is based on the recent discovery by another art historian, Silvano Vinceti, of the numbers 7 and 2 artfully concealed in the span of the stone bridge.
Miss Glori believes the numerals are a reference to 1472, the year in which a devastating flood destroyed Bobbio's bridge.
Historical records show that the bridge, known as the Ponte Gobbo or Ponte Vecchio (the Old Bridge), was swept away when the River Trebbia burst its banks that year.
"Leonardo added in the number 72 beneath the bridge to record the devastating flood of the River Trebbia and to allow it to be identified," said Miss Glori, who sets out the theory in a new book, The Leonardo Enigma.
Leonardo was born in the town of Vinci in Tuscany but travelled extensively in Italy during his lifetime and worked in Venice, Rome and Bologna.
The artist started painting the Mona Lisa in 1503 or 1504 in Florence, but did not finish it until years later, after he had moved to France to work under the patronage of King Francois I.
Most art historians believe the background, which features valleys and mountains, is an idealised, composite landscape drawn from the artist's imagination, but Miss Glori is convinced that it depicts a specific place.
The painting was kept in the Palace of Versailles until it was moved to the Louvre Museum in Paris, and remains the property of the French state.
It is believed to be a portrait of Lisa Gherardini, the wife of a wealthy Florentine silk merchant.
In addition to discerning the number 72 beneath one of the bridge's arches, Mr Vinceti, the president of Italy's National Committee for Cultural Heritage, claimed last month to have found mysterious symbols concealed in the Mona Lisa's eyes.
He believes the letters LV – a possible reference to Leonardo's initials – appear in the right pupil, while other letters, possibly CE or B, appear in the left eye.
But other experts have contested the claim, saying that the so-called hidden symbols are in fact cracks which appeared over the centuries in the oil painting.
How hi-tech age has left us unfazed by idea of alien life
dailymail - The sight of flying saucers over Britain, so science fiction would have us believe, would see panicking mobs in the streets.
But it seems we may be far more worldly than writers, or over-protective governments, have ever given us credit for.
Psychologist Dr Albert Harrison argues that people have become so used to the idea of alien life that they would be ‘unfazed’ if the proof appeared before their eyes.
Unfazed: Experts argue that members of the public would not be scared if they were to come into contact with aliens
He said things have changed dramatically since 1961, when the U.S. Congress was warned evidence of extra-terrestrials would lead to widespread panic.
In North America and Europe at least, neither the discovery of an alien nor the detection of alien
radio signals were now likely to lead to ‘widespread psychological disintegration and collapse’, he concluded.
Advances in our technology have brought civilisation to a point where the idea of other beings travelling through space to Earth no longer seems far-fetched or frightening,’ Dr Harrison argues in a special edition of the journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society devoted to aliens.
People had been getting used to the idea of extra-terrestrials since the Seti (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) project first began listening out for alien radio signals 50 years ago, he said.
Today, surveys suggest that half of the U.S. and Europe believe in aliens, while a ‘substantial proportion’ are convinced alien spacecraft had already visited the Earth.
A second paper in the same journal argued that the discovery of intelligent alien life was unlikely to threaten the world’s faiths.
Ted Peters, theologian at the Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, California, surveyed 1,300 people of different faiths around the world.
He wrote: ‘It became clear that the vast majority of religious believers, regardless of religion, see no threat to their personal beliefs caused by potential contact with intelligent neighbours on other worlds.’
He also argues that worshippers would be able to accept that heaven would welcome aliens too.
However, elsewhere in the journal, evolution expert Professor Simon Conway Morris, from Cambridge University, said the chances of intelligent alien life were low.
If evolution were the same throughout the universe it would be unthinkable that advanced space travellers in older parts of the universe should not have reached the Earth by now, he said.
Prof Conway Morris added: ‘That did not happen, and it will not happen. We never had any visitors, nor is it worth setting up a reception committee in the hope that one day they might turn up.
‘They are not there, and we are alone.’
