GLOBAL ALERT: 4 Incoming CMEs Will Hit Earth's Magnetic Field!


According to Spaceweather.com, Sunspots 1301 and 1295-1296 are crackling with C-flares and there are incoming coronal mass ejections from the Sun.

FOUR CMEs: On Sept. 19th, the STEREO-SOHO fleet of spacecraft surrounding the sun detected six coronal mass ejections (CMEs). Two of the clouds rapidly dissipated. The remaining four, however, are still intact and billowing through the inner solar system.  According to analysts at the Goddard Space Weather Lab, who prepared the movie, one CME should hit Mercury on Sept. 20th at 05:40 UT while another delivers a glancing blow to Earth's magnetic field on Sept. 22th at 23:00 UT. All impact times have an uncertainty of plus or minus 7 hrs. High-latitude sky watchers (on Earth) should be alert for auroras when the CMEs arrives.
Solar Watcher provides the following Volcano and Earthquake Watch for September 22 to 26, based on the incoming CMEs.
Targeting three separate regions on the solar corona to earth this watch period. First region is Southern Hemisphere 22-27° Latitude, regions best mapped for a strong 7.5 magnitude earthquake are: Antofagasta-Chile, Kermadec Islands, Tonga, South Of Fiji Region or Easter Islands Region. Second area mapped to 56-60° North latitude, best mapped regions are : Kodak Islands, Southern Alaska, Gulf Of Alaska, Alaskan Peninsula Region or the Koryakskiy Russia Region. *Also a watch for volcanic activity in the Kamchatka Peninsula* Third and final region that could see an event 22-26° north latitude zones, areas targeted for a possible 6.5 Magnitude earthquake are: Ryukyu Islands, Taiwan, Yunnan-China or the Myanmar Region. Ionospheric Anomalies are South Japan Islands stretching across to India and Central America also have significant readings. OLR anomalies are this week located : Gujarat-India, Mariana Islands, Christchurch- New Zealand, Arizona/Nevada-America and South of Alaska Region.

MYSTERY: Symbols of an Alien Sky, Man-Made or Natural Phenomena - The Latest UFO Sightings And Aerial Anomalies Around The World!? MUFON: UFO Sightings in USA Have Doubled During The Summer!?


UFO sightings in the United States have more than doubled this summer, according to a new research. The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) - an organisation that tracks reports of unidentified flying objects, said some states doubled their numbers in the last six weeks. According to MUFON, 1,013 sightings were reported in August, up from an average of about 500 per month nationwide. MUFON international director Clifford Clift told Life's Little Mysteries: "It's pretty exciting."

Mr Clift said the 'UFO flap', which occurs when a cluster of sightings happen in a short period of time, could be due to a psychological phenomenon called 'priming', in which people believe they see what they are told to look for, whether it exists or not. A shift in focus in popular culture could have led to an increase in sightings, he said - with more books, movies and television shows focusing on the mystery of the UFO and alien invasion. 'It's likely that the media and (alien-themed) movies that are coming out, like Apollo 18 and Paul, are piquing people's interest in UFOs,' Mr Clift told Little Mysteries. People are also more likely to go outdoors in the summer months, increasing the chance for sightings. Numbers could also be inflated due to duplication in sightings. Mr Clift also said MUFON has received reports of objects reported as UFOs, which the organisation has determined to be other objects, such as airplanes, shooting stars, satellites and weather balloons. The organisation, he said, is still investigating data on UFO sighting reports from recent weeks
. - Daily Mail.
According to MUFON, 1,013 sightings were reported in August. Reports from their website UFOStalker.com detail a series of alleged sightings in the last week alone:

September 18, 2011: Hoboken, New Jersey - 'White stationary object...started to move and then reversed direction'
September 17, 2011: Gilbert Mesa area, Arizona - 'Amber/orange glowing object'
September 16, 2011: Westfield, Massachusetts - 'First two glowing orbs travelling at similar speeds'
September 16, 2011: Charlotte, North Carolina - 'Orange lights that appeared to fly like controlled ballons'
September 13, 2011: Bullhead City, Arizona - 'Five crafts flying down the Colorado river in formation then they stopped and hovered for several mins and then continued down the river'

Over the last couple of weeks, I have documented several of these sightings, including the flying object captured on television cameras during a Notre Dame football earlier this month and the weird light phenomenon seen across several states last week. Here are few more, plus sightings from around the world:

Possible unidentified submerged object (USO) was recorded on the West coast in Sweden. This video was recorded several days ago.

New footage of unknown lights and objects hovering in the night sky above Tucson in Arizona. This was filmed on Monday, 19th September 2011.
In this one there is a bit more action then just a floating light you can see the blinking one which i think is Human made and the stable floating ones are the UFOs on the right corner you can actually see when one just disappears! - Brookefb Youtube Channel.

Two linked bright objects were recorded flying across the sky above Fraser Valley in Grand County, Colorado on 19th September 2011.
 I first submitted a report about a sighting I had around 5:15 AM in the sky high above James Peak (Continental Divide) on August 29th, 2011. In the 21 days since, I have witnessed similar sightings, in the same general vicinity, for most of the clear mornings (cannot be seen when cloudy). There is a flashing, very bright object(brightest object in sky besides moon)in the sky high above the Continental Divide. The object at times appears still, but then clearly moves, making short jutting motions in erratic directions. For the first several nights (mornings, actually - I viewed it at varying times between 3:00 AM and 6:30 AM when the sun is up) I tried to capture this object on any and all of our cameras, but had no luck. All the cameras could capture was blackness. Finally, on September 4th, I was able to capture still photos and video of the object on my Blackberry phone (pictures/video attached). At times when millions of stars are visible to the naked eye, this is the only object that the camera on my phone would pick up, that evening and in several evenings since. Perhaps this isn't so odd, considering this object appears to be the brightest object in the sky, although many of the stars are nearly as bright, just not quite as large to the naked eye... - MUFON.

UFOs captured by an eye-witness on a Airbus A320 plane coming from France. This video capture was filmed on August 21 of this year.
A great UFO sighting come from the France. There are some UFOs taken from an airplane. The witness was on the Airbus A320 Airfrance, and he took three photos out the airplane to landscape. In a first time, he saw nothing. Only later, reviewing the photos, the witness noticed the UFO. According to Angelo Carannante, the manager of CUBMGC (Centro Ufologico di Benevento Mars Group Campano) and CUFOM (Centro Ufologico Mediterraneo), the appearance of these UFOs are very common. Carannante claims: “Seems that UFO have change tactics. This is a very interesting sighting." - CUFOMCHANNEL.

DELUGE: Typhoon Roke Force 1.3 Million Evacuations in Japan!


More than 1.3 million people were advised to evacuate on Tuesday as Typhoon Roke approached Japan, threatening the industrial city of Nagoya with heavy rain and landslides.

In Nagoya in central Japan's Aichi prefecture about 1.1 million people were urged to evacuate, while other cities in western Japan also issued evacuation advisories on a smaller scale, public broadcaster NHK said. No major disruptions to plant operations were reported. The eye of the typhoon was 210 km (130 miles) east-southeast of the southern island of Tanegashima, moving east-northeast at 20 km (13 miles) per hour as of 5 p.m. (0800 GMT), the Meteorological Agency said. "In Aichi, the heavy rain is causing some rivers to overflow. I would like to ask people to exercise the greatest caution against potential disasters from torrential rain, strong winds and high waves," an agency official told a news conference.


The city of Nagoya asked Japan's military, called the Self-Defence Forces, to send in troops for disaster prevention, a city official said. Typhoon Roke follows on the heels of tropical storm Talas, which left about 100 people dead or missing in western Japan earlier this month. Tokyo Electric Power Co said the typhoon had caused no damage to its Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, where reactor cooling systems were knocked out by the March 11 earthquakes and tsunami, triggering a radiation crisis. The plant, 240 km (150 miles) north of Tokyo, was unaffected by Talas. - Reuters.

WEATHER ANOMALIES: Rare Tornado, Storms Wreck Havoc in Italy!


Violent storms across Italy that led to four deaths over the weekend caused damage and disruption on air, port and city transport systems on Monday, officials said.

Six underground subway stations in the capital Rome that were closed due to flooding overnight disrupting the morning rush hour reopened in the early afternoon. Buses took travellers between stops. Palermo airport on the island of Sicily was forced to close for 40 minutes after a tornado whipped a Falcon 2000 aircraft off the runway, throwing it against police and emergency vehicles. The storm also ripped free the 'Suprema' ferry from its moorings at Palermo port, causing a small boat nearby to sink before running into an English destroyer, the Monmouth, which was undamaged. Train traffic was disrupted in the Naples region causing delays and regional train cancellations. In the town of Canepina, north of Rome, more than a third of the central square caved in after it was undermined by water. In northern Italy, snow and falling trees closed five mountain passes. On Sunday, two hikers were found dead in a landslide, while a 72-year-old German tourist died after falling into a ravine and a man in his 40s from Milan was struck by lightning. After several days of unseasonally high temperatures, weather conditions took a turn for the worse in the north of the country on Saturday gradually moving south on Sunday. - Montreal Gazette.

MASS ANIMAL DIE-OFF: Mallards Dying in Lake Forest Lakes!


In the last two weeks, more than 30 dead or dying ducks have been found at ponds and lakes around the city. Residents of the Lake I and Lake II communities have reported finding hen and drake mallards floating in the lakes there and flopping on nearby grass.


Dead ducks also have been found at Village Pond Park and nearby at the Forest Gardens Mobile Home Park. Officials from Orange County Animal Care have picked up some of the dead birds, and residents have tried to save some birds by taking them to the Wetlands & Wildlife Care Center in Huntington Beach. Anne Breuer, a Lake I resident, is concerned bread being fed to the ducks at Village Pond Park coupled with the recent heat and algae forming in the water are contributing to the growth of botulism. The city does no enforcement," Breuer said of regulations prohibiting feeding ducks. "I've seen a baker's truck unload at the duck pond and people out there all day with non-duck food. It's very sad to see them just dying and flopping around."...

"If we can just figure out what is, we can do something about it," Breuer said. "If it's botulism, we know what we can do. We can scoop them up and they can get better." Officials from the Wetlands and Wildlife Care Center, a nonprofit organization in Huntington Beach that educates the public on the effects people have on native wildlife, said they are caring for at least a couple dozen ducks from Lake Forest, all of which seem to present symptoms of botulism poisoning. Debbie McGuire, wildlife director at the center, said the birds are definitely under the influence of a toxin and are being treated as fast as they are coming in. Most have healthy, plump bodies but are becoming paralyzed.

EARTH CHANGES: 1,200 Evacuated As Fire Ravages Ibiza!


Around 1,200 people have been forced out of their homes by a forest fire raging in Ibiza.

Some 150 firefighters were battling to control the blaze yesterday, which threatened to engulf the exclusive Roca Llisa development on the south of the island. Police ordered residents to leave the area, near the town of Santa Eulalia, in the early hours and, while emergency services appeared to have the fire under control today, fire crews were keeping a close eye on the scene in case the fire reignited. At least four houses have been ravaged by flames but there have been no reports of any injuries. A spokesman for the British embassy in Madrid said they were unaware of any British expats or holidaymakers being affected. The spokesman said: 'We are not aware of any British residents being affected by these fires. We have not been asked to provide consular assistance to anyone so we have not had any involvement.' The fire broke out around 8pm on Sunday and is thought to have destroyed around 100 hectares of forest. The cause of the fire is not yet known. It is the second major forest fire on the Spanish island this year. In May 1,500 hectares were destroyed by a blaze near Sant Joan, the worst forest fire in the island's history. - Daily Mail.
