A load of hot air?

Posted by dandare on September 2, 2007

In the UK, ufology has to start analysing “orange Lights/ufo reports”, and filtering out the chinese lanterns events from the equation; therefore it must try to study this and update to keep this in check. Somehow, guidelines must be set out to accomplish this for modern day UFO research.

The main problem facing them is the shear numbers of reports, that are being reported to and published to the media; in the long term this willl not help ufology, and in my eyes will damage it badly…. also any genuine UFO report might be missed in this.

It seems that this type of sighting mainly started in the summer of 2006, and again similar to this year, it was soon mentioned that chinese latterns were the cause. However, uk ufologists have told the media what this is, but they still ignore them, when the next sighting comes along (probably the circulation of papers goes up?).

In 2006 it was mainly confined to the southern counties of England…..now it has spread to encompass the whole of the UK; and seem to start rising in numbers from may to september.

The latterns/ufo balloons are becoming even more popular, due to them being released at parties, weddings,ect (and probably now people who want to get ufo headlines in the paper, and for hoaxing).However, in the Ripley and Heanor News.co.uk, an article written “UFOs or a simple chinese tradition”  (posted 31st august) has been highlighting the problem, mainly due to them being frequently inundated with phone calls; the only problem is that next year they will probably report the same things all over again.

So we face a dilema, in that we will also have to look through each article, to check if they are chinese lanterns or not, but hopefully when this is done we could alert others to this fact.

For example on the 26th july, 2007 This is hampshire.net wrote about “ufos spotted over southampton“, and if you run the video, they have the characteristic orangey red glow, and all are going in the same direction.

On the following day, an article was written to say they were lanterns….. “A spokesman for the lantern company wishesinthesky.com said: “We’ve heard of many UFO sightings which have turned out to been flying lanterns. The UFO Society has followed this with interest.”

” He said the flying lanterns were becoming very popular at weddings, funerals and parties”.


 they have a whiteish-yellow glow, although in some weather conditions, these can be orangey red, and do not move quickly (unless in a strong wind-although this could create a fire risk) and always with the wind too, obviously. They can also be tied together.

They last for around 8 to 10 minutes (but sometimes slightly longer) and can rise as far as about 1000 metres; it can also move with airstream’s as it rises. Although i have heard of some that can last for far longer (up to 40 minutes they claim) using a candle framework to keep it alight for longer…. i’m sure there are other variations too.

Another thing is that they do not come out well on camera or video, but can be quite visual when seen real time.

Another thing to check is heavens-above  it gives detailed information of satellites, space shuttle, international space station (star chart tracking) and other astronomical data…all are real time generated…it can also check back in time…therefore a good general resource to aid the ufologist when analysing sightings.

UPDATE: 3rd september

There is also another variant that must be considered….this consists of helium balloons and a glow stick (or several) stuck on the end, also known with flashing LEDs. There is probably more i have not even thought of though…..

Has a Mythical (chupacabra) beast turned up in texas?

Posted by dandare on September 2, 2007

Has evidence of the chupacabra been found? in this article by Elizabeth White (Associated Press Writer -posted 31st August, 2007), it is mentioned that in

“CUERO, Texas – Phylis Canion lived in Africa for four years. She’s been a hunter all her life…[.]” and “Canion believes she may have the head of the mythical, bloodsucking chupacabra”…. (extracts from the article).

And yep, she keeps it in the freezer, as it will be going off for DNA testing.

There is also evidence of blood drained chickens victims….On the left hand side of this article is a photo of the creature, and a slideshow too.

I have absolutely no idea if this is what she has found, but it has left people wandering what the hell it is?
