Mysterious Flash on Jupiter captured in rare footage

A stargazer landed the shot of a lifetime on Wednesday after he captured extremely rare footage of a mysterious flash of light on Jupiter, which may have been an elusive meteor explosion.


Texas astrophotographer Ethan Chappel captured the incredible sight while he was filming the planet, and said the event on Jupiter's southern equatorial belt "looks awfully like an impact flash." A bright spot can be seen appearing out of nowhere before it quickly fades away, reports RT.

"After I checked the video and saw the flash, my mind started racing! I urgently felt the need to share it with people who would find the results useful," Chappel told ScienceAlert.

Astronomer Jonti Horner said he had "never seen anything like that before," and described the flash as "just totally breathtaking."

"A lot of the time these things will go unnoticed and unobserved," he explained. "Half of them will happen on the far side of the planet. So there's a lot of things working against seeing these events."

A 1998 study found the rate of large impacts on Jupiter are between 2,000 and 8,000 times the rate of impacts on Earth. Capturing the impacts are rare, however. One was captured in 2009 and again in 2010.

It appears out of no where - Unknown luminous tubes flying over Area 51

What are these flying tubes? The objects are not looking like planes or helicopters, maybe drones or sky-divers? Or another secret project tested by the folk at Area 51?


The photographer who submitted the images to Mufon states: On Aug 8 2019, I was at Area 51 Black Mail Box location. I was taking images of the sky with a 15 second time exposure. When out of the corner of my eye I noticed these two lights darting in and out.




And finally a minute latter launch into a steady eastward direction, controlled and slow. The images will show change in color and proximity of crafts to each other.


The photographer continues to say: I don't think they are helicopters because they just were to close together. When they took off, they flew like regular aircraft as we know in a straight line headed east.

But it appears out of no where!

Flying Saucer becomes visible over Zagreb, Croatia during thunderstorm

On June 16, 2019 during a thunderstorm over Zagreb, Croatia a huge UFO can be seen in the middle of the thunderstorm.


The photographer who submitted the images to Mufon talks about a pyramid-like object, but after enlarging the object it appears to be a clear flying saucer type UFO.


Photographer: I saw something strange in the sky under clouds...pyramid like object was standing there in the moment when thunder strike.

Massive UFO appears above ancient Ley-line in London, UK

In June 2019, UFO Researcher Miller captured from the 5th floor roof top balcony with his Ipad at 10.27 several images of the sky in all directions.

After reviewing the images, Miller noticed in one of a the images a huge UFO in the cloud formation.


In the second image the UFO is no longer visible; instead we see that a strange triangle has appeared between the clouds.

Since Miller stated that the location is situated on an ancient Ley-line crossing the magnetic world grid is it quite possible that the UFO probably piloted by extraterrestrials has used the invisible powers and energy coming from the Ley-lines for navigation.

Mysterious force of nature known as Ley-lines, invisible geometric alignments that ran across ancient landscapes, connecting both natural and sacred prehistoric structures such as ancient monuments, stone circles and megaliths together.

All Ley-lines run over the electromagnetic fields of the earth and lead to the planetary Grid.

Linda Moulton Howe Is An Alien Megastructure Circling A Star In Space?

The light pattern of a middle aged star called KIC 8462852, some 1,480 light-years from Earth suggests that some kind of complex matter structure is circling the star, causing intermittent brightening and dimming by "a mass of objects," according to Prof. Jason Wright, an astronomer at Penn State University.


He told Linda that he and his colleagues are studying all possible natural explanations, and the exotic though unlikely possibility that it could be a "swarm of megastructures" built by an advanced alien civilization to harvest energy from the star.

At the suggestion of the Penn State team, SETI started pointing their Green Bank radio telescope at the unusual star to check for signals.
