Earth's first spacecraft to the stars:

Russian billionaire Yuri Milner and British astrophysicist Stephen Hawking announced on April 20, 2016, their plans to send a small spacecraft of a few grams with a sail pushed by a powerful laser beam to the star closest to Earth, Alpha Centauri.

"StarChip" is to be accelerated to a fifth of the speed of light, ie 60,000 kilometers per second, through its few square meters sail, and should reach Alpha Centauri in twenty years.

The first results of research indicate that the projection of the laser beam would require roughly the energy required for a space shuttle take off, said Avi Loeb, a Harvard professor and member of the project.

Yuri Milner, an investor in Facebook, will dedicate $ 100 million from his own pocket to the project, called "Breakthrough Starshot".

UFO sighting report from Valmalenco, Italy:

An anonymous person described to "Il Giorno" his observation with a female friend in the evening about 11 p.m. on Sunday, April 17, 2016,in the rain in a secluded area in front of the power plant in Valmalenco, Italy.

Minutes after a strong storm, to their surprise and concern, they saw a stationary vehicle in the sky.

The man writes: "The craft was roughly triangular in shape, glossy black, reflective, with luminescent purple dots on the end of the body, it was suspended, stationary, perfectly still and silent."

Once the initial fear passed, he took some photos to immortalize the scene. "Everything was calm and unreal in the area, except for the rain and fog in the region. Suddenly, a series of a electric shocks coming out of the coils of the system of the power plant and darting with dramatic ramifications struck the hull of the craft projecting a shower of sparks." Sirens of the center went on.

They then left in panic and met a police patrol, heading rapidly towards the central "probably alarmed by the sirens."

"I can only add that I saw many people at their windows, probably impressed by the strange sound of the sirens."


A woman talks of her UFO sighting in 1957 in France and the "CE4" that followed:

A 14-minute video shows an interview with "Laurence" who said she had experienced a close encounter in the Indre in France, when whe was 7, in 1957. One of the brothers who was also a witness shouted "a UFO!" - Which is amazing in 1957, the acronym being unusual then in Frence. The children then went back to the house a few hundred meters from the beach, with "Laurence" who had not watched the UFO. Arrived in the aunt's garden, she saw a craft hovering above the garden. "Laurence" describes it as "metallic" and with portholes, making no noise and staying there several seconds to then become smaller and smaller as it was leaving.

Saying she is perhaps "emotional" since birth, she says she later had a "feeling", a "small gift" to guess what would happen. Without then imagining a relationship with the 1957 UFO, she reports that her sister complained to their mother about "little men" with large eyes, numerous, moving to and fro inside the house. The mother thought it was nightmares. The sister said that one of the "little men" had caught "Laurence" who was inert in bed. Laurence sometimes dreamed she was "choking", that someone came in the bedroom, or dreamed she was unable to find her way home, she had anxiety attacks, spasmophilia - these experiences are very reminiscent of hypnagogic hallucinations.

All this lasted several month, the two sisters thinking these were ghosts, linking this with the 1957 UFO only in their 30's by reading articles on abductions on the Internet.

Alleged aliens on 10.000-year-old cave paintings in India:

Several sensationalist UFO websites now speak of a discovery by archaeologists in India of cave paintings meant to represent aliens and a "three-legged UFO". We are told it was exposed on the "The History Channel".

The story is actually dated July 15, 2014, and has its source on the "Times of India" website:

"CHARAMA (Chhattisgarh): Chhattisgarh state department of archaeology and culture plans to seek help from Nasa and Isro for research on 10,000-year-old rock paintings depicting aliens and UFOs in Charama region in Kanker district in tribal Bastar region."

"According to archaeologist JR Bhagat, these paintings have depicted aliens like those shown in Hollywood and Bollywood flicks. Located about 130km from Raipur, the caves come under village Chandeli and Gotitola."

"'The findings suggest that humans in prehistoric times may have seen or imagined beings from other planets which still create curiosity among people and researchers. Extensive research is needed for further findings. Chhattisgarh presently doesn't have any such expert who could give clarity on the subject,' Bhagat told TOI."

"There are several beliefs among locals in these villages. While few worship the paintings, others narrate stories they have heard from ancestors about "rohela people" — the small sized ones — who used to land from sky in a round shaped flying object and take away one or two persons of village who never returned."

"'The paintings are done in natural colours that have hardly faded despite the years. The strangely carved figures are seen holding weapon-like objects and do not have clear features. Specially, the nose and mouth are missing. In few pictures, they are even shown wearing space suits. We can't refute possibility of imagination by prehistoric men but humans usually fancy such things,' the archaeologist said."

"He added that it is a co-incidence that such ancient images appear to have sharp resemblance to UFOs shown in alien movies. "The fan-like antenna and three legs of vehicle's stand clearly show a similarity to UFO type craft," he said."

"Other archaeologists would also be consulted for further verification."

A "constellation" of lights seen in Rostov, Russia:

Svetlana Kuprina of the "Big Rostov" website indicates that UFOs were reported above the city of Rostov April 5, 2016, in the evening.

One of their readers, Andrej H., wrote that "last night (April 5, 2016, at about 07:30 p.m.), my family and I were traveling by car in the area of?Ul Serzhantova. In front of my eyes was a weird constellation in the sky. At that time, apart from that constellation, there was almost no stars in the sky. Then we realized that this constellation was moving quite fast, it was made of about 20 spots. We stopped to look but we were unable to take a video."

The witness suggested that this might have been some LED flashlights attached to balloons, and he asks if anyone else saw this phenomenon and could have filmed it.

There is not enough information, and the published image is only an illustration, but I wonder if it was not again just Chinese lanterns.

Sighting with photographs in Antalya, Turkey:

English-speaking people sent MUFON a report on April 9, 2016, about their sighting of April 3, 2016, of an unusual object over the sea in Antalya, Turkey:

"We were at the hotel in Kemer- ANTALYA. Sitting and talking with the family. Shiny object with strange move. We thought it was a helium filled metallic balloon. It moved North first and then came back and hovered above the sea. I suprised and then took 5 shot with my canon 450d with zoom lens. When you look at the pictures it was like a door opened at the end of the photos it becomes the known ufo shape and vanished. I said vanished because when I try to take 6th photo I could not find it anymore."

See one of their photos:

The object actually does looks like a balloon, maybe fitted with some LEDs.

Object called UFO detected by radar in the sky of the area of Smolensk, Russia:

On April 1, 2016, a "mysterious UFO" was detected by the Russian military radar near Smolensk. The object was moving at an altitude of 1500 meters, at a speed of 300 kph, and did not respond to calls of the radar controllers of the Russian army.

It moved from the Smolensk region, going in the direction of Kaluga. According to local media reports, at the time of detection of the object, all air defense forces were put on high alert.

At 09:55 local time, the track disappeared from the radar while it was in the area of the village of Chernyshino in the Kozelsk District, Kaluga region.

After that, experts tried to find an object fallen to the ground, but no trace was found.


While UFO websites reported the case, according to the army preliminary report, the object could have been a helicopter or a drone.
