UFO close encounter of the third kind - The Lonnie Zamora UFO Case

The Lonnie Zamora incident was a UFO close encounter of the third kind which occurred on Friday, April 24, 1964, at about 5:50 p.m., on the southern outskirts of Socorro, New Mexico.


Several primary witnesses emerged to report stages and aspects of the event, which included the craft's approach, din, conspicuous flame, and physical evidence left behind immediately afterward.

It was however Lonnie Zamora, a New Mexico State police officer who was on duty at the time, who came closest to the object and provided the most prolonged and comprehensive account.

Some physical trace evidence left behind—burned vegetation and soil, ground landing impressions, and metal scrapings on a broken rock in one of the impressions—was subsequently observed and analyzed by investigators for the military, law enforcement, and civilian UFO groups.

The event and its body of evidence is sometimes deemed one of the best documented, yet most perplexing UFO reports.

It was immediately investigated by the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, and FBI, and received considerable coverage in the mass media.

It was one of the cases that helped persuade astronomer J. Allen Hynek, one of the primary investigators for the Air Force, that some UFO reports represented an intriguing mystery.

After extensive investigation, the AF's Project Blue Book was unable to come up with a conventional explanation and listed the case as an "unknown".

Out of place anomaly spotted in Antarctica

This anomaly is located in an inhospitable area at Antarctica and I'm wonder whether it is something that has formed naturally over the years or man-made, since it looks like a base or storage facility, but is it?

The anomaly is 105x40 meters and 10 meters high.


In addition, there is another strange brownish object located above the large anomaly which is very similar to an old settlement or entrance.

In either case I have no idea whether it is just natural or artificially created but in case it is artificially, I suppose perhaps something important has been found there on which they have decided to cover it up. 
Please take a look, here are the coordinates: 66°37'37.57"S 110°16'39.19"E  Set timeline on 2004.

Meteoroid bouncing back into Space?

You ever have seen a "rock from space" that flies above the horizon, then gains height again to disappear back into space? Well, this one does!

A meteoroid was recently observed skimming Earth’s atmosphere. The meteoroid was spotted in the early hours of 22 September above Northern Germany and the Netherlands, getting as low as 91 km in altitude - far below any orbiting satellites - before it ‘bounced’ back into space.
A bright light streaking through the sky, when it enters the atmosphere. While most of the meteoroids disintegrate, possibly with pieces reaching the ground as meteorites, this "visitor", however, didn't get low enough to completely burn up and managed to escape again, only grazing the edges of our planet’s protective gassy shield, according to the European space agency ESA.
What stands out is not only the trail of light in front of and behind the strange object, something you don't normally see when a meteor flying overhead, but this "rock…

Astronomers baffled by mysterious object coming to Earth

Mini-moons are a unique space phenomenon that usually happen when an asteroid is caught by Earth's gravitational pull and temporarily orbits the planet.

But now, astronomers are baffled by an object which is on track to enter Earth's orbit in November and it doesn't seem like an asteroid.
According to the director of NASA's Center for Near Earth Object Studies, this 'mini-moon', which they have called asteroid 2020 SO, could be a lost booster rocket from the 60s.
So they're basically suggesting that this man-made booster rocket traveled through space only to resurface close to Earth after more than 50 years. Is that possible or this object isn't man-made at all?

Pilots See ‘Impossible’ Object when approaching airport of Bariloche, Argentina

July 31st, 1995. A Boeing 727 carrying 102 passengers is on final approach to the airport of San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina. According to the radio transcripts, flight crew and personnel on the ground witnessed a rapid-moving, luminous…something. In the pilot’s words, “the object has bright flashing lights...this...is...we think it's a flying saucer.”

How many trained observers saw this? Did it perform an "impossible" maneuver seemingly defying the laws of physics? 
And what did the Fuerza Aérea Argentina (Argentine Air Force) conclude this was? One of the most interesting and truly lesser known strange UFO encounters.
