We talk and hear a lot about the mysteries of the deep sea, about the monsters that lurk there, but we forget that we ourselves live at the bottom of a huge and little-explored ocean. It’s called the “atmosphere”.
It seems that this world is simple and clear – because it is always above our heads. And the only danger that threatens us is sudden precipitation.
But we are wrong. The air above us is as mysterious as any other – the Atlantic, the Pacific, or the Indian.
The Terror of Altitude
“Our world is very poorly protected from the strange and sudden dangers that threaten it. There are also jungles in the upper atmosphere, and they are inhabited by creatures worse than tigers.”
This hypothesis is expressed in a fantasy story by the famous English writer Arthur Conan Doyle under the characteristic title “The Horror of Heights”, first published in 1913.
The hero of the story, pilot Joyce-Armstrong, was attacked and torn to pieces by monsters living in the upper atmosphere.
Conan Doyle imagined these monsters to be composed of gelatinous matter. They had two eyes and a beak and were held in the air by dorsal bubbles filled with light gas.
The writer also provides data on the size of the celestial monsters: each was several hundred square feet in size. Seemingly ordinary fiction, but some strange catastrophes make you wonder if Conan Doyle’s fantasies have some scientific foresight.
In 1939, a military transport plane took off from San Diego Airfield on a regular flight to Hawaii.
Three hours after takeoff, the radio operators picked up distress signals from it. Then the transmitter went silent. But soon the control tower in San Diego saw the ill-fated plane returning to the airfield.
It barely made it to the runway and landed on the bottom without releasing its landing gear. When rescuers arrived at the scene of the emergency landing, they saw a horrific sight. Although the cabin itself was unharmed, the entire interior was covered in blood. The pilot and flight engineer lay dead.
The lacerations on their bodies looked as if the pilots had been attacked by sharks. The co-pilot, who had brought the plane to the airfield, was bleeding to death. He died without uttering a word.
A closer look revealed that the floor of the cockpit was littered with shell casings. There was not a single round left in the pistols of the dead. There was a heavy smell of hydrogen sulfide in the plane.
A quarter of a century later, two pilots took off in a small private plane from Nome, Alaska. A few hours later, the voice of one of them came over the airwaves: “Help! Help! We’re surrounded by blinding light! Both engines have failed! That creature…” Then the connection was suddenly cut off. No explanation could be found for what had happened. The plane disappeared without a trace.
On September 8, 1970, an F-94 military plane disappeared in the night sky over Binbrook, England. Shortly before it disappeared, the radar operator received a very strange message from the pilot, Captain Scheffner:
“I have a visual contact… It’s something vague, without a clear outline. It’s a bluish light. Damn, what brightness! It’s very bright… I’m right next to it. That cone… Hey, wait, there’s something else here!
“It looks like a big glass soccer ball… Maybe there’s a magnetic connection between it and the cone. There’s a glowing haze. Yellow. A second… It’s turning. Heading straight for me… …makes a deflection maneuver… I can firmly…”
The connection was cut off. Only two months later Scheffner’s plane was found at the bottom of the North Sea. It looked undamaged, as if someone had carefully lowered it under water.
The history of aviation accidents knows many cases of how aircraft collapsed and fell for no apparent reason. Some of these accidents were explained as the result of inept (and sometimes simply criminal) actions of the crew, but over the years and years information has accumulated about completely mysterious disasters.
A lot of such events occurred during the Second World War. For the first time in the history of mankind, tens of thousands of aircraft of various designs and purposes took off into the air. Unexplained cases have also become more frequent. It got to the point that in the folklore of pilots there appeared small evil men – gremlins, destroying aircraft engines.
However, no one managed to see the gremlins in reality. But here the Italian researcher Luciano Boccone claims that he managed to photograph creatures invisible under normal lighting that simply overwhelm the space around us. Boccone dubbed them “critters”, which means “creatures”.
Above Figure shows a 4 frame progression of an invisible “Spinning Jenny” possible bio-form, part of a much larger group filmed moving from right to left. It was moving above the trees at Hayes’ research area on the afternoon of October 2nd 2011. The footage is taken from infrared movie-mode footage recorded at 30 frames per second on an infrared converted Canon G10 camera, with an internal 720 nm infrared pass filter.
Specialists in anomalous phenomena disagree on the nature of “critters”. Some believe that these are special “ethereal life forms”, others tend to see monsters as the embodiment of people’s nightmares, and someone defends the idea of parallel worlds, whose inhabitants become visible to us under certain conditions.
Whatever it was, but “quitters” are directly related to the issue we are discussing. Some researchers suggest, that these are obviously living creatures moving in space without the help of mechanical devices.
They are not perceived by our senses and, apparently, are very dangerous if the combination of some circumstances unknown to us leads to a direct collision of man and monster.
Unidentified flying objects (UFOs) do not look like living beings. Our imagination tells us that these are, most likely, some kind of aircraft – the creation of the hands of intelligent beings. However, imagination is not the best tool for analyzing facts. The latter, in turn, say that UFOs often behave like living beings, and not like objects of artificial origin.
For example, UFOs can leave behind a strange kind of discharge called “angel hair”. This is a kind of gelatinous cobweb-like substance that falls to the ground after the passage of the “plate”.
According to the data given in the book of the famous ufologist and popularizer of science Siegel “Observations of UFOs in the Soviet Union”, “angel hair” sometimes covers the earth with a fairly dense layer, but disappears without a trace after a few hours. When touched with hands, they turn into lumps of radioactive mucus with a distinct smell of hydrogen sulfide.
Academician Petryanov-Sokolov, director of the Institute of Physical Chemistry, once gave the following conclusion on samples of “angel hair”: “The sample is of interest as a very fine-fibrous substance and has no analogues in terrestrial nature.”
Another case of laboratory analysis of this phenomenon is known. On October 27, 1954, during a training session of the Fiorentina football club at the stadium in Florence, several oval luminous bodies appeared above the city, making zigzag maneuvers.
When they disappeared, a strange snow began to fall on the ground, resembling disheveled shiny cotton wool. People tried to catch the threads with their hands, but they instantly melted.
One of the fans present at the stadium guessed to wind the threads on a stick, after which he placed them in a jar and took them to the chemical laboratory of his university. It turned out that “angel hair” consists of a strange combination of boron, silicon, calcium and magnesium
In addition to the ability to leave secretions, UFOs have a number of other features that indicate their biological nature. One of the most unusual properties of UFOs has been their strange transformations. They are expressed in changes in shape and size or in splitting into parts and then flying each part separately (reproduction by fission?), and sometimes, on the contrary, in combining several objects into one.
There are many cases when UFOs were split into two or more parts before the eyes of witnesses, which then flew in different directions. In September 1980, 200 miles southwest of Gibraltar, the crew of the research ship “Victor Bugaev” observed hanging over the stern of a white cigar-shaped object with a black stripe, which emanated two yellow rays.
Before the eyes of the witnesses the object split into two parts, one flew to the north-east and the other to the north-west. The entire sighting lasted 4 minutes and was recorded in the logbook.
In November 1968, in the French Alps, Dr. X. saw two completely identical disks, about 65 meters in diameter and 16 meters high, approaching the house at a low altitude. Their tops were silvery white and their bottoms were red.
The discs rotated around their vertical axes and flashed every second. Then they began to shorten the distance between them, until finally they merged into one disk. It flew toward the house and stood on the edge, pointing a beam of light at Dr. X. Immediately there was an explosion and the UFO disappeared.
In February 1974, in Valeni Munte, Romania, ten children from an orphanage watched as two still-hanging glowing orange spheres slowly approached each other and merged into one ellipsoidal object about 7 meters in diameter, which increased in speed and disappeared.
And here are the observations of the specialists. In July 1977, astronomer Tikhonov in Baku noticed through a telescope moving at a high altitude yellow-green object, which, after making two stops, split into two halves. A few seconds later, one of these halves also split into two, with each separation accompanied by an explosion.
Soon one of the smaller units joined the whole half, and then moved away to its previous location. Then all three parts moved closer together without joining, and after a while separated again and disappeared from view.
Ufologists cannot find a suitable explanation for such transformations. This is understandable, because they believe that UFOs are artificial objects, and there are no analogues in earthly technology to the effects that demonstrate to us flying saucers.
However, it is worth imagining that UFOs are of a living nature, and many things become clear. All these metamorphoses we can observe through a microscope placed over a Petri dish, where a colony of the most ordinary bacteria lives and develops.
Thus, we can assume that people who observed unidentified flying objects witnessed manifestations of life activity of some, so far unknown to science, animals living in the upper layers of the atmosphere. And, at least, this hypothesis is no worse than the one according to which UFOs are alien spaceships.
“Alien bases” may be hiding off the coast of Alaska, researchers say

unidentified flying objects (UFOs) has issued a statement based on
decades of studying eyewitness reports. According to Mutual UFO Network,

Enormous City-Size Comet Racing Towards Earth Grows ‘Devil Horns’ After Massive Eruption
A volcanic comet the size of a mid-sized US city has
violently exploded for the second time in four months as it continues
racing toward the earth. And following the massive eruption, the cloud
of ice and gas sprouted what looked like a pair of gigantic devil horns.
The city-sized comet, named 12P/Pons-Brooks, is a cryovolcanic — or
cold volcano — comet. It has a solid nucleus, with an estimated diameter
of 18.6 miles, and is filled with a mix of ice, dust and gas known as
cryomagma. The nucleus is surrounded by a fuzzy cloud of gas called a
coma, which leaks out of the comet’s interior.
When solar radiation heats the comet’s insides, the pressure builds up
and the comet violently explodes, ejaculating its ice-cold innards into
space through seeping cracks in the nucleus’s shell.
Live Science report:
On Oct. 5, astronomers detected a large outburst from 12P, after the
comet became dozens of times brighter due to the extra light reflecting
from its expanded coma, according to the British Astronomical Association (BAA), which has been closely monitoring the comet
Over the next few days, the comet’s coma expanded further and developed its “peculiar horns,” Spaceweather.com
reported. Some experts joked that the irregular shape of the coma also
makes the comet look like a science fiction spaceship, such as the
Millennium Falcon from Star Wars.
The unusual shape of the comet’s coma is likely due to an irregularity in the shape of 12P’s nucleus, Richard Miles, a BAA astronomer, told Live Science after the comet’s previous eruption.
The outflowing gas is likely being partially obstructed by a notch
sticking out on the nucleus, Miles said. As the gas continues to expand
away from the comet, the irregularity in the coma’s shape becomes more
defined and noticeable, he added.
12P is currently hurtling toward the inner solar system, where it
will be slingshotted around the sun on its highly elliptical 71-year
orbit around our home star — similar to the green comet Nishimura, which
pulled off a near-identical maneuver on Sept. 17.
12P will reach its closest point to Earth on April 21, 2024, when it
may become visible to the naked eye before being catapulted back toward
the outer solar system. It will not return until 2095.
This is the second time 12P has sprouted its horns this year. On July
20, astronomers witnessed the comet blow its top for the first time in
69 years (mainly due to its outbursts being less frequent and harder to
spot during the rest of its orbit). On that occasion, 12P’s coma grew to
around 143,000 miles (230,000 km), which is around 7,000 times wider
than the comet’s nucleus.
It is unclear how large the coma grew during the most recent
eruption, but there are signs the outburst was “twice as intense” as the
previous one, the BAA noted. By now, the coma has likely shrunk back to
near its normal size.
As 12P continues to race toward the sun, there is a high probability
that we will witness several more major eruptions. It is possible that
those eruptions will be even bigger than the most recent one as the
comet soaks up more solar radiation, according to Spaceweather.com.
But 12P is not the only volcanic comet that astronomers are currently
monitoring: 29P/Schwassmann-Wachmann (29P) — the most volatile volcanic
comet in the solar system — has also had several noticeable eruptions
in the last year.
In December 2022, 29P experienced its largest eruption in around 12 years, which sprayed around 1 million tons of cryomagma into space. And in April this year, for the first time ever, scientists accurately predicted one of 29P’s eruptions before it actually happened, thanks to a slight increase in the comet’s brightness in the lead-up to the icy explosion.
