'Tentacle UFO mystery deepens...'

'The UFO allegedly responsible for wrecking a wind turbine could have been a secret unmanned stealth bomber on test flights.

The claim came from Ministry of Defence insiders who reportedly said that a black delta-wing craft called Taranis was making test runs on the coastal bombing ranges at Donna Nook and North Coates in Lincolnshire, near to the site of the damaged turbine.

The Taranis, named after the Celtic god of thunder, is about the same size as a Hawk jet and is equipped with stealth equipment and an 'autonomous' artificial intelligence system.

The plane is being developed by BAE Systems and has been designed to deliver weapons to battlefields in other continents.

The UFO was spotted by hundreds of witnesses with many believing it was the work of an 'alien' craft. One saw orangey-yellow spheres skimming across the sky.

Another reported a 'massive ball of light' with 'tentacles going right down to the ground'.

Then witnesses told of an earsplitting bang at 4am. Come dawn and the plot thickens.

At the nearby wind farm one of the 60ft blades from a 200ft turbine was found ripped off. Another had been left twisted and useless.'


'The Guardian is able to reveal one possible explanation - one with uncomfortably close links to the newspaper itself. Late on Saturday night, the Guardian's director of digital content, Emily Bell, was a mere two miles from the Ecotricity plant when she witnessed an unusual light show in the night sky: the firework display she and her brother had arranged in their parents' garden to mark their father Peter's 80th birthday.

"There were several roman candles, and some of those ones which are orange and have the little blue dots when they go off," Bell said yesterday. "My brother said he got them from the local garden centre. Because it's so flat in that part of the world, you can see for miles and miles. So if you were perhaps a certain distance away and perhaps had had a drink, you might mistake them for orange balls of fire."

The next morning they noticed the shattered turbine, visible from the bottom of her parents' garden, and joked that one of their rockets might have damaged it. "There we are in the middle of a scoop and we're beaten to it by a red-top tabloid," Bell's mother, Bridget, 74, said. Bell's husband, Ed Crooks - who happens to be the energy editor of the Financial Times - also found himself beaten to the story.

"I think the fireworks certainly might explain the lights in some instances," Vince said last night, adding that there was "absolutely no question" fireworks could have caused the "catastrophic failure" of the turbine. For that, the company is continuing to consider metal fatigue, and looking into the possibility of a cow-sized piece of ice falling from a passing plane, which might explain the absence of other debris at the site.'


'The most likely explanation, according to Fraser McLachlan whose firm insures thousands of turbines. He says that there are half a dozen instances of blades separating from turbines a year, usually because they were not properly attached. "Sometimes machines just break," he said. The blade that flew off could have hit the other blade, explaining the damage.

... Passenger jets are meant to drop their lavatory waste over the sea, but there have been several instances of loads being released on land and causing damage on the ground. It sounds far-fetched but may be the most credible collision explanation, as the urine would have thawed and drained into the soil.'

Lame. How can all of these competing "explanations" be true? Liars always have to buttress their lies with more lies- it's part of the pathology.

There is so much UFO activity lately- more than I can ever remember. The Skepti-Shills must be drinking giant tubs of Mountain Dew and eating trash bags filled with Cheetos trying to dream up lame-ass excuses for it all.

Maybe a lot of it has perfectly mundane explanations. But the fact that we're seeing all this foolishness in the press tells me people are very nervous about what is going on.

Mr. Knowles is's a special stealth plane, it's frozen poo, a reallly big bird did it. These explanation are goofy.

I saw the New Jersey report right after watching the questionable "UFO Hunters" on A/E in the states. I'm still not sure if this is a disinfo show or not, but they were doing a report on lights in the midwest and actually tied flares to balloons and then tethered them together and tested it...could not duplicate what has been seen both in Phoenix and elsewhere.

Urine contains a high proportion of nitrogen which will remain in the soil.

It could either be analysed or even just wait till Spring, the vegetation in the proximity should be green and lush and easily distinguished from "untreated land", once it resumes growing again.

cheers, brian

Good point, Brian.

I may well 'borrow' that observation for my write-up, if you don't object.


Newspaceman said...

Not at all.

Some facts,

Night soil (as it is termed in agriculture/crop growing)contains the following %'s:

.51N 0.1P 0.23K

Human dung, fresh, 80% water, breaks down in soil slow-medium.

Should be there for a while if that is what it was.

Stealth bombers don't have tentacles. That's not a very convincing explanation.
