Nueva visión de la muerte de estrellas masivas con un estudio de supernovas y estallidos de rayos gamma

Las supernovas o explosiones de estrellas que emiten rayos gamma expulsan más cantidades de niquel que el resto. Es una de las conclusiones del estudio simultaneo de tres fenómenos de este tipo analizados por un equipo internacional de científicos, con participación de la Universidad del País Vasco y el CSIC.

Extreme High Strangeness in Ohio

Ohio MUFON investigator Ron McCone reports that a witness driving near Carmel, Ohio on December 12 "came up over a hill and saw a 7' tall slim, gray creature with muscular legs that walked like its knees were backwards." Nevertheless, it moved rapidly and effectively. What it was is a complete unknown, but the witness, a 60 year old ex-Marine not given to confabulation, seems entirely credible.

Colombia: The UFO Was a Balloon, Says Planetarium

BOGOTA. Dozens of people looked skyward for several minutes watching an object that flew around erratically in the vicinity of Bogotá, Colombia's Zona Rosa.

Those who thought they were seeing an unidentified flying object (UFO), and those who took an endless number of photographs of what they took to be an unusual phenomenon were disappointed after the Bogotá Planetarium reported its findings.

Given that the UFO subject became a trending topic on Twitter, the Planetario de Bogotá explained, through its Facebook account, that the alleged UFO was in fact a balloon. "A photo of the balloon mistaken for a UFO was taken using the 8-inch telescope at the Bogotá Planetarium on Friday afternoon, 12 December [2014]."

To confirm its pronouncement, it presented a photo of the object, credited to Mauricio Giraldo. The matter of the alleged UFO was promptly forgotten.

A CE-2 from 2004? UFO Landing at Puerto Natales, Chile

Our friend and colleague Liliana Núñez, formerly with Archivos Forteanos Latinoamericanos, reminds us of this intriguing video from 2004 allegedly showing a "UFO landing at Puerto Natales" (in the commune of Natales, Province of Ultima Esperanza, Chilean Patagonia). There is no narration beyond random voices: at 00:29 someone asks "Where is Humberto?" and "It has a weird shape" at 00:36. The video is credited to the Centro de Investigacion Ovnilógica de Natales (Patricio Frias, Jose Loalza, Eladio Godoy & Walter Vera).
