I don’t know about you, but this really makes me believe that there really is something out there.

First video shows Marines on patrol in Iraq spotting some kind of horizontal light in the sky that they can not make out.  Before you view this I have to warn you that some of the soldiers are using some words that might be offensive.

UFOs Sighted By Marines In Iraq: Just incredible, unaltered footage!

UFO Footage From Iraq Soldiers: Strange lights seen in the sky over Iraq through night vision camera. VERY eye-opening!

An asteroid that was 30 ft across exploded through our atmosphere at about 9-12 miles above sea level at an estimated 45,000 mph on October 8th. It didn’t do any damage because of the height at which it exploded and the size of the asteroid. However, researchers feel that had it been slightly larger it could have caused significant damage on the ground. What has everyone the most shaken is the fact that it was not spotted ahead of time by telescopes. And of course, it is reported that the White House is to develop a policy on the space object impact threat by October of next year. This is in my mind a great example of how the human race as a whole has no control or impact over the world or universe around us. Here is the link to the full story and a video of the trail after it entered the atmosphere:

I’m not sure why, but for as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by the weather. One of those things which have caught my attention the most has been lightning. Until a month or so ago, I was unaware that there was “upwards lightning” as described in the first article sited below. However, I watched a documentary on lightning about a month back on the Discovery Channel’s Raging Planet and toward the end they had some information on this phenomenon which is actually called sprites. I was, of course, hypnotized by this documentary and have been somewhat obsessed with sprites ever since. Anyway, here in the first article it makes it sound as though it has just been discovered, but it was actually first photographed by scientists in 1989. The second link is a video of sprites, and the third is a bit more information. It is very interesting and I thought maybe it would interest some other people out there as well.
