French TV channel looks for UFO-crazed people for a show

French TV channel TF1 seeks UFO-nuts for their show "Confessions intime" (intimate confessions): they need somebody to which UFOs are a "devouring passion", who "is convinced that there is a life elsewhere than on the planet earth", who "does not consider a day, an hour without studying, researching ufolologic phenomena" by devoting all his/her time and money to that. They also ask that "relatives, family, friends do not understand your passion, does not accept it."

If you want to be the laughing stock on French TV and meet these conditions, do not hesitate to contact the channel.

The UFO of the Icelandish volcano Eyjafjöll.

Watching on the TV a video report on the fume ejected by the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjöll, a chap seeing there what is a bird convinced himself it was a UFO, with the reason that birds would not fly close to a volcano eruption, and he published the video and his explanation on youtube.

For a few years, with any event filmed by TV news channels, any bird has been regularly called UFO by somebody somewhere, which starts long discussions on the web. One of the last such occurrence started with a news report on US president Obama, starting an "Obama's UFO" craze.

With the context of this new video, in addition to the cries of of "Truth on the UFOs" and paranoid fears some "government cover-up", the new speech is about "the end of the world into 2012" which would prompt aliens to intervene.

Someone posted on Youtube a video which seems to be a news report from Dominican Republic about a UFO spotted by a number of witnesses in Villa Francisca II on April 16, 2010 at 08:30 p.m.. The alleged news reports includes alleged footage of the UFO.

Big meteor over Central USA.

A meteor shower was due between April 4 and 21, 2010. And indeed a large meteor disaggregating while entering the atmosphere was seen as a "gigantic ball of fire", in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, at about 10 p.m. on April 14, 2010, and generally with comments in the news that it was a meteor, but sometimes claimed to be something "mysterious", which made it enter some "UFO" and "paranormal" websites and blogs.

How many people believe that "alien beings have come to earth and walk amongst us in our communities disguised as us"?

Ipsos conducted a poll between November 4th, 2009 and January 13th, 2010, on behalf of Thompson Reuters News Service.

An international sample of 24,077 adults aged 18-64 were interviewed in a total of 22 countries; about 1000 people were polled in each of these countries. A survey with an unweighted probability sample of this size and a 100% response rate would have an estimated margin of error of + / -3.1 percentage points 19 times out of 20 per country of what the results would have been had the entire population of adults in that country had been polled.

People were asked if they agree or disagree that "alien beings have come to earth and walk amongst us in our communities disguised as us".

The question was clearly not whether "UFOs exist" or whether we have alien visitors or wether there is other intelligent life on other planets, but clearly whether "alien beings have come to earth and walk amongst us in our communities disguised as us".

The results were published on April 8, 2010, and are, sorted according to the result:

India - 45% agree / 55% disagree
China - 42% agree / 50% disagree
Japan - 29% agree / 71% disagree
South Korea - 27% agree / 73% disagree
Italy - 25% agree / 75% disagree
United States - 24% agree / 76% disagree
Brazil - 24% agree / 76% disagree
Australia - 23% agree / 77% disagree
Russia - 21% agree / 79% disagree
Spain - 21% agree / 79% disagree
Poland - 19% agree / 81% disagree
Czech Republic - 18% agree / 82% disagree
Great Britain - 16% agree / 84% disagree
Canada - 16% agree / 84% disagree
Hungary - 14% agree / 86% disagree
Argentina - 13% agree / 87% disagree

France - 9% agree / 91% disagree
Sweden - 8% agree / 92% disagree
Belgium - 8% agree / 92% disagree
Netherlands - 8% agree / 92% disagree

The golbal result is that one person in five agree.

There is virtually no difference in terms of income level (lower 22%, higher 20% or middle 19%) and marital status (married 19% versus other 21%).

Those who do not believe that "alien beings have come to earth and walk amongst us in our communities disguised as us" (80%) are more likely to be women (83%) compared to men (78%), those over the age of 55 (89%) compared with those aged 35-54 (84%) and those under the age of 35 (75%), and those who are least educated (low and middle at 81% both) compared with those who are highest educated at 78%.

"The Sun" makes claims of "aliens attacking sheep", U-K.

U-K. tabloid "The Sun" claims on its website that "ALIENS are attacking our SHEEP, UFO experts chillingly claimed yesterday." And: "Fuming farmers have been waking up to find animals dead after seemingly being 'experimented on'."

Claims from one "Phil Hoyle" are published, as if UFOs liked to roam a specific 50-mile corridor between Shrewsbury and Powys and "zap" farm animals with beams.

The Sun's story appears on some "UFO websites" without a word of caution. The Sun is a sensation tabloid, it publishes the most outrageous stories and offers money to people who send such stories.

Video of a "UFO" in the sky in Alvignanello, Italy.

The website of the newspaper Il Matino headlines on a "UFO" seen and recorded on video by four people with Alvignanello, between the province of Caserte and the Telesina Valley, Italy, the article being copied or publicized on some careless UFO websites.

Information, very incomplete, lets understand that it is on the video that the "luminous flying object" is seen "zooming around".

One also learns, although no date, hour, direction are specified, that this "UFO" appeared "several days in a row at about the sunset time", which should suggest an astronomical explanation that does not come under consideration in the article.

A local ufologist takes great care to voice his opinion on the video, as being an authentic video, but apparently nobody realizes that for example a video of Venus with heavy zooming can be mistaken in all good faith for a video of a "UFO".

Russian website claims a piece of extraterrestrial spaceship was found in Perm, Russia

On April 4, 2010, the Pravda.Ru website claims "A fragment of an extraterrestrial spaceship has been found in Russia's Perm region, according to local ufologists who analyzed unusual material, "from which the mysterious object was made."

"Specialists" determined that the strange metal was wolfram with additives and that this compound could not be found anywhere else on planet Earth so it must be of extraterrestrial origin.

The claim apparently comes from Nikolay Subbotin, the head of "RUFORS research station". The website also says - whether this is related to the so-called UFO fragment or not is not specified - that Russian news agencies reported about two months ago that residents of the city of Perm in Russia's Ural could see a strange object hovering in the sky. Eyewitnesses said that the object was scanning the ground with a beam of light. Someone even saw "passengers" disembarking from the strange object.

english.pravda.ru is not the former USSR newspaper "Pravda". This website usually published all sorts of claims, such as the claim there are cities on the Moon.

Video of "possible UFOs" over Dunfermline, Scotland.

On April 4, 2010, someone posted a video on "youtube", with the comment: "Possible ufo sighting over Dunfermline Scotland seen from our home window on the night of Saturday the 3rd of April.This starts with 3 lights together and a string of lights trailing behind arcing through the sky from the horizon then dissapearing."

The "UFOs" look just like a bunch of Chinese lanterns.

So-called "Triangle UFO" video.

One "ufostalker1" posted on April 2, 2010, a video of what obviously appears to be a plane, and claimed it is a UFO: "i put it in slow motion,so you can see it better, you can clearly see a triangle, no doubt!!!"
