I took some video with my phone a few days ago at a nearby neighborhood concert. When I moved the phone out of the direct light, a mysterious blue sphere bounced through the bottom of the screen.
In my 15 years as a TV news reporter I’ve never seen anything like this on video. Admittedly, the news cameras in my reporter days had technology different from the iPhone, but it was still digital technology. I think the blue ball is very weird, and here’s why.
I searched the internet for any mention of a blue ball bouncing on iPhone video and found none. I would think if this were a technical glitch, there would be some mention of it.
When I freeze the video and zoom in on the sphere, it has irregular, steamy blue edges, as if it’s burning or emitting energy. If this was a lighting or video effect or echo, I would expect to see the edge diminish in clarity or repeat.
At the end of the video, notice how I zoom in on the background. If it were a light distortion within the lens, I would expect the sphere to stay within the frame. Instead, it moves out of the bottom of the frame as I zoom in, just like an independent object would do.
I carefully watched the motion of the sphere, and although the movement was erratic and it was close to the bottom of the frame, it did not appear to be about to exit the frame at the precise moment I zoomed.
It looks as if my zoom moved the camera’s focus away from an independent object.
So what to make of this mystery… Blue lights are common in UFO sightings, and this could be classified as a very odd example of a Foo Fighter. It’s commonly believed that Foo Fighters monitor human activity. This concert was an unusual event for a quiet residential neighborhood.
What I think is fascinating is that it became visible just as the light source for the camera was reduced by the big houses in the background. Some might say that explains the effect in the first place. But it may also explain why the camera was able to capture the object.
Cloaking is the use of some material (or gas or liquid or energy) that makes an object invisible. Typically, when we think of alien cloaking, we think of something so advanced that it could never be detected. But maybe it’s simpler than that.
I certainly believe that aliens must have superior technology in order to get here, but maybe it’s not as advanced as we think. Or maybe they use more organic means to hide their existence or their small, blue probes.
The TV show Brain Games showed us how our brains can be fooled into not seeing objects right in front of us.
In the bright blue sunshine, moving in a specific way, the sphere might be completely invisible. When the lighting changed, my camera was able capture
an image my eyes couldn’t.
So was it real or a video glitch? Was it alien or human technology?
I tried to find the latest information on cloaking technology. In 2015 a professor at The University of California, San Diego, developed a thin, non-metal material that manipulates electromagnetic waves, including visible light!
That article is two years old. No updates. Hmmmm… Maybe we’re not supposed to know how the research has evolved.
Are the government and high tech companies spying on us? You bet. Do they have this level of technology? Maybe not. But if we humans are this close, it’s probably child’s play for the aliens.
One more thought. Why did I happen to see this when I was trying to think of a great blog topic? Maybe the aliens fed it to me so that I could pass it on to you.
I think our special mission on this ball of mass flying through space is to discover and ultimately commune with entities, powers, and beings that evade our normal physical senses but are none the less present. Every time the hair stands up on the back of your neck, you see a fleeting shape from the corner of you eye, or you turn around suddenly to see what is looking at you, some sensory perception we don’t understand has alerted you to a presence. I think as we further explore and learn about these perceptions and feelings we will discover another dimension of beings that want to interact with us and from who we have much to learn. I look forward to other posts to this site exploring these weird but normal experiences.
What I am wondering about and researching currently is the change to the timeline a few years back that has mixed us up with a parallel world. The term has been called the Mandela effect and much has been written about it. Some pretty lame examples exist on the web but I personally found old paint spots from a room I painted years ago that I know were not there before. I also have people that I am close to that have completely different recollections of events that occurred in the past, events that we shared. If you haven’t heard much about it do a search and check it out! I would be interested if anyone has personal things that they have noticed.
A teenager I know says he’s tired of being sucked dry by what he calls “Energy Vampires!” He was at an event that required him to smile and hug several older people. Aside from the usual pain that comes from that kind of interaction, he complained that the old folks had literally stolen his energy.
He also shuts down around outgoing people, and claims they feed off of his energy in order to maintain their high level of energy output.
An outgoing person once told me she stays away from quiet people because they drain her! She claims she is unfairly required to provide all the energy for the interaction.
Who is right?
Scientists say our bodies are powder kegs of tiny, opposing parts held together by a mysterious thing called strong energy. In fact, electricity courses through us and we create kinetic energy with our movements.
Perhaps it’s not just kinetic and electromagnetic energy that’s being passed around. Dark energy is hypothesized to make up 68 percent of the energy in the observable universe, and we don’t know enough about it to say for certain that it exists.
Maybe we can steal or give away an unknown type of particle that’s invisible, but very real.
I see something like this in what we perceive as mood. If I’m in a great mood and my husband is in a rotten one, I can usually fight off his bad “vibe” for an hour or two. Eventually, the powers within me break down and my mood sours. Invariably, when this happens, his mood brightens. Is it possible that he transferred something to me because I opened myself to receive it?
Call it mood or call it energy, things are going around. Sometimes this energy carries thoughts. Perhaps we usually pick up thoughts from those closest to us because we let down our guard to receive them.
My book series will include aliens who feed off what we perceive as emotional energy. Is this a skill we humans may someday acquire? Or do you think we already possess it?
I love reading fantasy and sci-fi, so I’m excited about this site. I haven’t had any really weird things happen to me yet, but there is still time.
I’m a journalist and writer, and no stranger to the weird and unexplained. I’ve seen enough to know life itself is a magical story. Where one person sees a yucky bug, another sees an alien living among us, a friendly monster with amazing strength.
As a firefly takes off from your hand, feel it push against you and appreciate the connection you’ve created with a different being. Turn over a rotting log and see what lives in the cool, wet world that is hidden.
What other things are hidden among us? Perhaps ghosts, aliens, and undiscovered forms of communication.
I personally witnessed a shadowy ghost when I was a teenager. An invisible ghost shoved my husband after playing with his travel alarm clocks. My sister-in-law once saw a child in old-fashioned clothing disappear. A bright, silent U.F.O. stalked my brother.
Just because we can’t explain something doesn’t mean we can’t research and ponder what is happening, and in my case, write about it.
I am about to publish a series of novels that imagine aliens are manipulating our lives. Fantasy is fun, and so is creating out-of-this-world characters. Some you will love, others you will love to hate.
Here’s a hint: Miranda is a free-spirited freshman at the University of Chicago. She’s crazy about her new boyfriend, Leo, until she finds a black and white photograph of him with Adolf Hitler at a rocket laboratory. She thinks it’s a hoax, until Leo drugs her and ties her to his sofa. He claims to be an alien, one of thousands living on Earth in artificial bodies…
Please be watching for the release of these books in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, have fun wondering about the unexplained. Enjoy our world; from bugs on leaves to weird things you see floating through the air.
I love exploring nature with my husband, teenaged kids, and dogs Ace and Pip. There is always something new to discover in our forest home outside Louisville, Kentucky.
