Honduras: Alleged UFOs Unleash Controversy Among Readers of Diario TIEMPO

SAN PEDRO SULA - A considerable number of readers of www.tiempo.hn who looked at photographs of seemingly mysterious objects flying over San Pedro Sula claim having been witnesses to Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) along various parts of the northern and western coasts of Honduras.

Their stories emerged yesterday on Facebook and DIARIO TIEMPO's website, following publication of two photographs taken by a journalist of this communication media, using a cell phone from the 12th floor of the Altia Smart City Building 1.

On July 30, prior to attending a conference in this building, the journalist photographed the cityscape, and on October 27, nearly three months later, finally looking at the images, he was startled to see disk-shaped objects against the slopes of El Merendón.

Along with the images in question, www.tiempo.hn published a brief newspaper item with the title "UFOs in San Pedro Sula?". Shortly after, readers left over 150 comments - some serious, others slightly humorous - on the Facebook page and the website.

One of the readers, identified as Enrique, remarked that he had seen "those very same artifacts" in the sky at 9:25 on the night of October 20, as they headed toward El Merendón.

"They headed toward El Merendón. I thought it was my imagination, but it wasn't, and I didn't record anything. But I'm certain that I looked at them (...) I don't believe in such things, but upon seeing them with my own eyes, I was bewildered."

Wilmer Rosales Murillo, another reader, believes "evidence suggests that we are truly being visited" by beings from other worlds.

"Those of us who watch the skies constantly know that these sightings occur periodically. The drawback is that governments won't mention the truth about these visits, but the fact is that we are indeed visited and I will go as far as saying that they live among us," said Murillo.

Other readers, less fearful of criticism, claimed not only seeing flying objects, but also humanoid entities flying in the skies.

"I have seen extraordinary things. I don't believe in extraterrestrials. What I saw was the shape of an angel heading for the sky, truly surprising. It was made of pure fire and wings - I shall never forget that experience," said Marvin Alexis Bobadilla Junior.

As is the case in the international scientific community, there are also discrepancies among Hondurans regarding the existence of extraterrestrial life and visits by "flying saucers" - as they are commonly known - to planet Earth.

A group of more skeptical readers, with no apparent interest in the subject, used the occasion to amuse themselves and make jokes, posting "memes" about alien beings, despite the fact that cameras installed on the International Space Station have captured strange objects in the universe.

The two photos published yesterday by www.tiempo.hn were taken by a journalist with a cell phone at 11:06:37 in the morning, and the second at 11:06:41 (4 seconds difference). They show grey-colored disks in alignment.

One reader believes that the figures appearing in the photos are reflections of the office lights from where the journalist captured the images.

"While taking the pictures through a window, the lights in the room they were taken from formed reflections on the window, which go [unnoticed] until they are seen in the final image and not while being taken. A good photographer should know these things," said a reader identified as Uno+

To Oscar Aguilar, a psychologist with the Prosecutor's Office in San Pedro Sula, the existence of aliens beings is a subject that can be neither confirmed nor rejected up to now.

"No certain verdict can be rendered. I cannot say that they exist or don't exist. If they exist, and we have not seen them, we can say they have not done humanity any harm," he said.

From this psychological perspective, according to Aguilar, a sizeable number of humans believe in aliens because "they feel the need to think that they are not alone, and this is a way of gaining security."

Moreover, he believes "the subject of the existence of extraterrestrials can be used to manipulate people."

Unknown Country Halloween Week: Myths and Monsters - Is There Any Truth Behind The Legends?

We all love a good monster movie, don't we, even if it's viewed with just one eye open from behind the safety of our sofas?

Year after year, Hollywood favourites such as Count Dracula and the Wolfman, and other classic fiendish figures continue to draw crowds of eager horror-movie-lovers. But when and where did our preoccupation with the "bogeyman" arise? Is there any basis in truth to the stories of mythical monsters?

Greg McDonald, director of forensic medicine at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, says that like many myths and scary stories, both Dracula and the Wolfman stemmed from a poor understanding of medical maladies.

The Experience Sample Post

Wednesday October 29, 2014

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Peru: Unnreleased Recordings of Strange Lights over Arequipa

According to Peruvian ufologist Anthony Choy, Peru is among the world's top five countries when it comes to the most UFO sightings recorded in the past decade.

To Rafael Mercado, a ufologist from Arequipa, who visited the location and was able to access videos, take photos and hold conversations with the area's inhabitants, the sighting would have gone unnoticed had it not been for some locals who claimed seeing strange objects flying over great Mount Ubinas, leading to the subsequent follow-up and capture of imagery.

What are these lights? Several experts explain the subject in the following reports.

Confirmada la existencia de una población de cuásares ‘tranquilos’

Los cuásares lejanos suelen ser muy energéticos, de rápida evolución y asociados a las grandes fusiones de galaxias, pero existe otra población de cuásares que evoluciona lentamente. Investigadores del Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (IAA-CSIC) han logrado por primera vez datos espectroscópicos de estos cuásares distantes y poco luminosos con la calidad necesaria para determinar sus parámetros esenciales.

Halloween Week On Unknown Country: Good News For Vampires? Bespoke Blood May Soon Be Possible

We are all programmed to have strong reactions to the vivid color of the life-giving fluid that runs through our veins. For some, it is a morbid fascination that causes them to watch horror movies, but for others it evokes terror and can often have a deeply profound effect when witnessed; phobia of blood is very common and can cause fainting in those who are particularly sensitive.

Researchers believe that, in fact, this is a deep-rooted reaction that may once have saved our lives in primitive times:
