    By Ted Bonnitt on March 19th, 2019

    Trish Bishop had just moved into her Kissimmee, Florida home in March of 2013. After a long day at work, she stepped into her backyard to enjoy the late afternoon setting sun, now shaded by the woods behind her property and saw something that changed her life. 

    About 30 feet off the ground hovered a "very odd" sight. The mass appeared to shimmer, "Kind of like looking at water," she later told the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).

    After a remarkable 9 years without direct access to the space frontier, the United States came a step closer today to not having to rely on the Russians to get astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS).

    SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule successfully splashed down in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida, completing the first test flight of the manned space vehicle. It returned from a 5 day visit to ISS with over three hundred pounds of cargo and a dummy named Ripley (an homage to a character from the film “Alien”). Ripley is a space age crash ...

    By Ted Bonnitt on March 4th, 2019

    By Ted Bonnitt on March 1st, 2019

    Sightings claims of alien spacecraft are often ignored by the news media.  But when the top astronomer at Harvard University says that we may have found one, it makes headlines.

    Harvard Astronomy Department Chairman, Dr. Avi Loeb, has made the astonishing claim that a mysterious object observed flying through our solar system last year, known as “Oumuamua” could have been built by alien intelligence from another solar system and sent to examine the goldilocks zone of our solar system. Goldilocks zones refer to planetary regions in space that can support life around stars.

    Professor Loeb’s postulation involves a lot ...
