BLACK TRIANGLE UFO OVER LONDON HAS ‘DIGITAL GLITCH’

London, England. Credit: GoogleA British witness at London reported watching a black, triangle-shaped object “about two-to-three times the size of an A380 passenger jet moving overhead, according to testimony in Case 92298 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness and his wife were standing in their backyard having a cigarette at 11:30 p.m. on May 1, 2018.

“Jupiter was very low in the sky and we were wondering what it was?” the witness stated. “We got out my phone and used the Skyview app to work it out. We both commented on the fact that we hadn’t ever remembered seeing Jupiter or if we had, we didn’t know that’s what it was. London skies are always full of passenger aircraft coming into land at Heathrow and we are on one of the flight paths they use. The planes come in from the east over our house and then head out west before they turn north towards Heathrow airport. You can always hear them. This black triangle object with round lights on each of its three corners and one central light that was reddish orange in color appeared in the west.”

The witness said the object was about two-to-three times the size of an A380 passenger jet.

“It flew right over us in one fluid motion, in a slight arch. It rotated slowly as it moved across the sky. It probably made one full rotation in the time we witnessed it. It flew from the west horizon to the northeast horizon in about 8-10 seconds. It was completely silent. The sky was completely clear. There were no clouds and the stars were very visible. We both watched this object come in and pass right over us both. We both knew exactly what we had both seen. It was like watching a silent fiction movie or one of those UFO TV shows, but real life. We both just watched it until it wasn’t visible anymore, then looked at each other both with shocked but excited faces and said, ‘what was that.’ Then we both said together, ‘that was a UFO for sure,’ We both knew exactly what we had seen. We are in the photography/film industry. We use our eyes for our job. This object was so clearly a solid structure, but it also had a film static kind of shimmer to the underside of it, a bit like digital glitch. I know it sounds ridiculous, but it was like its cloaking device was switching on or switching off. This was so incredibly strange and overwhelming it has most defiantly changed our view on UFOs.”

United Kingdom MUFON Field Investigator Karl Webb closed this case as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle.

‘Spaceplane’ that flies 25 times faster than the speed of sound passes crucial test

Hypersonic plane passes crucial test

A hypersonic ‘spaceplane’ just passed a crucial test for its precooler component. If and when the jet becomes available for commercial use, it could fly people from London to New York in less than 60 minutes.

A ‘spaceplane’ that flies 25 times faster than the speed of sound has successfully passed a crucial testing milestone.

The hypersonic plane is so fast it could jet from London to New York in less than 60 minutes and transport you from the UK to Australia in four hours.

Oxford-based Reaction Engines has been working with the European Space Agency and the UK Space Agency, along with BAE Systems, to make the powerful aircraft.

Reaction Engines has recently been testing a ‘pre-cooler’ for the plane, which is technology that would allow it to travel faster than ever before.

The pre-cooler is critical in the plane’s development because it is required to stop the engine from melting by lowering the temperature of compressed air in the engine from more than 1,000°C to room temperature in one-twentieth of a second.

Thousands of tubes inside the pre-cooler, which are thinner than human hair, contain liquid helium that can cool the air as it rushes past them.

Until now, heat has been a limiting factor for how fast aircraft can travel, including Concorde which traveled at two times the speed of sound.

This technology could now be combined with the spaceplane’s experimental engine, referred to as Sabre.

Sabre is intended to be much lighter than a conventional rocket engine because it would carry less fuel-oxidant.

It is being designed to draw oxygen into the engine to use for combustion from take off until it reaches just over 4,000 mph.

After this point, the engine would need to burn liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen from on-board fuel tanks.

The spaceplane would need to continue using this process until it reached 25 times the speed of sound to enter space.

The company ultimately aims to create a reusable vehicle that has the fuel efficiency of a jet engine with the power of a rocket.

Plans for the hypersonic plane don’t just include getting people around the world in a fraction of the time but also taking people or cargo into Space and back for just a fraction of the current cost.

Court documents stated that a cooperating witness met with the actress and her husband, “Shameless” star William H. Macy, at their Los Angeles home and explained to them that he “controlled” a testing center and could have someone secretly alter her daughter’s answers. The person told investigators the couple agreed to the plan.

Huffman was arrested and released on a $250,000 bond last month. Macy was not charged.

More than four dozen people have been charged in the nationwide scam, which is alleged to have placed students in top-tier schools like Yale, Georgetown, Stanford, the University of Southern California, UCLA and the University of Texas. A federal investigation into the matter – dubbed “Operation Varsity Blues” – has been ongoing for more than a year.
