Anomaly hunters drool over mysterious ‘sphere’ spotted in NASA images

sphere-compare

Doubtful News welcomes Scott Brando @ufoofinterest as a contributor. Here we go again… NASA publishes through its official channels an apparently unusual image, and some people jump to the conclusion that it’s a UFO or mysterious. Then the agency is accused of covering up the truth. The latest is from NASA’s SECCHI spacecraft (Sun Earth…

Spiers’ outlandish conspiratorial claims gain new life months after his sudden death

max-spiers

Today, the story of the death of British UFO investigator, conspiracy theorist and supernaturalist, Max Spiers, is splashed all over tabloids and mystery mongering sites. Headlines scream that Spiers was close to exposing secrets and may have been murdered instead of dying of natural causes as the death certificate says. He may have even warned his…

MUFON to rebrand

mufon-logo

I found this story… interesting funny, well, not sure. What do you think? MUFON – motivated by increasing interest in UFOs, company orders rebrand The Mutual UFO Network, the largest UFO investigation squad in the US and also the largest amateur anomalous research and investigation group possibly in the world with thousands of volunteers, is looking…

Nothing interesting happens in Canberra, eh? UFO hoax revealed (and it’s deemed ‘not interesting’)

orb

There was really no story to cover when, on January 4, 2015, several news outlets reported on a video on YouTube, promoted on Reddit, that was getting attention. You see, UFO/portal/wormhole videos are decidedly uninteresting (or should be) because they can pretty easily be faked and ARE regularly faked. All videos and photos (of ghosts, Bigfoot, lake…

YouTube-Google lends a welcome hand to UFO debunkers

UFOcaughtontape

It’s happened to lots of websites: criticism (or just a mention) of a product or a person results in an overreaction with an inappropriate claim of copyright infringement. How can you soundly explain the reasoning for why you think a certain photo is a bear, not a Bigfoot or that a UFO video is a hoax unless…

Video shows light streak – ball lightning or bug?

Doubtful news blip: UFO videographer ‘saw a streak of light that I cannot explain or rationalize.’ Source: Tantalizing Theory Emerges After UFO Sighting In Lightning Storm A bright, glowing object appears from the left side of the video that is completely different from the high cloud to cloud lightning in the distant storm. Ball lightning? Maybe, but…

Should sky lanterns be banned?

Floating orange balls of light, preparing for take off.

Chinese lanterns, also called sky lanterns, are small balloons made of paper that fly because of heated air from a small fire underneath. These devices are a prime source of “UFO” sightings since they move with the winds aloft and can accelerate unexpectedly but also remain seemingly stationary for a bit, confusing the witness. They…

Texas Black Cube UFO from portal is a hoax

Photo from the video of photos on YouTube. Yeah, it's not really a video. Wonder why...

The Houston Chronicle and the MySA (San Antonio Express) are running the same story about a black cube UFO supposedly seen over El Paso at the end of June. Normally, we wouldn’t bother with giving additional attention to such a ridiculous piece, but when it hits the main news outlets, it’s time for a rebuttal.…

Philadelphia sky blob is not very spaceshippy

His Noodlyness over New Zealand

fsm

Ok, this is good for a laugh. Don’t be fooled by people posting this as real on your Facebook feed or in forums. Quite a disconcerting image and, therefore, we suspect hoaxing immediately. Thanks to Group of Fort on FB (especially Anthony Selletti and Jim Fitzsimmons) for pointing this nifty share out to me and coming…

The scoop on the Roswell Slides: really pathetic hoax

Nice resolution, eh? Looks like a museum, you say? Hmm, yes, I believe you are right. What kind of idiots do you think we are?

Back in November 2014, we reported on a story from the UFO community – Thomas Carey told the audience at a conference that he had “smoking gun” evidence that extraterrestrials have been here – Kodachrome slides dated 1947 showing an alien. I don’t typically use Billy Cox as a source but he does note that people have…

Bronx UFO report confusing, not good evidence

The red object was identified as the UFO spotted in the Bronx on April 25, 2015. Photo credit: Andres Morales.

Another UFO over New York. Another case of less than impressive and rather inconsistent (and vague) descriptions. While several people claimed to have seen something and called police, when and what they saw is not determined. UFO buzzes NYC | New York Post. A mysterious light in the sky so freaked out some Hunts Points…

UFOs over US and I ain’t too surprised

Oh those crazy Raelians!

The Raelians are planning to construct and embassy to welcome extraterrestrials, they stated in a press release today. (No, not yesterday; I’m pretty sure they are serious).

Ancestry.com now labeled evil due to copyright claim cheap shot

Many reports will not contain enough information to determine the cause. But unexplained DOES NOT mean unexplainable.

In a strange update to this story, government files obtained through FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) have been claimed to be copyrighted. Jason Colavito notes it in this piece: the Black Vault database of Project Blue Book was taken down after Ancestry.com asserted that it owns the copyright (!) to the Air Force’s UFO files,…
