SpaceX launch mystery: Multiple UFO sightings during NASA livestream – social media frenzy

Multiple mysterious UFOs were spotted by viewers of the SpaceX livestream as the Falcon 9 rocket took two NASA astronauts into space. The unusual fast flying orbs were spotted by several different viewers, who posted footage of the different objects on social media. The footage of the UFOs has since gone viral and registered thousands of viewers online.

The UFO sightings came during the successful highly-anticipated SpaceX launch of NASA astronauts into orbit.

Elon Musk, Donald Trump and Mike Pence all watched on in Florida to mark the first time since 2011 that humans had blasted off into orbit from US soil.

The two astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley on board the Dragon spacecraft were sent to the ISS.

However, during the live video feed streamed from the rocket itself, several bizarre flying objects were spotted hovering above Earth.

Viewers remarked that there were “several moving objects” seen while watching the live stream.

One viewer questioned: “How are they going to explain all of these now?”

Another said: “I saw two events similar to this one when I saw it live, that seemed even more conspicuous than this example. Glad others noticed it too.”

In one video, a bizarre orb can be seen beneath the rocket moving across Earth at a rapid pace.

In another clip, a strange UFO was recorded seeming to leave Earth and move deeper into space before vanishing.

A third viewer said: “After the launch of Spacex’s Falcon 9 Crew Demo, an object from Earth to space is rapidly launched in the 14th minute of the stream. Is this a UFO, a space junk or a rocket-owned piece?”

However, sceptics dimissed the UFO frenzy, claiming that all of the flying objects may have been debris from the rocket or space junk.

The successful launch comes after the first attempt was cancelled on Wednesday just minutes before blast-off.

Following the launch, SpaceX founder Elon Musk said he was “overcome with emotion” after his company successfully launched astronauts to space for the first time.

He said “I’m really quite overcome with emotion on this day, so it’s kind of hard to talk, frankly.

“It’s been 18 years working towards this goal, so it’s hard to believe that it’s happened.”

The successful launch came just hours after one of SpaceX’s Starship prototype rockets dramatically exploded into a fireball at the company’s test site in Texas.

The huge rocket, which is designed to carry humans and 100 tons of cargo to moon and Mars, was undergoing tests when the explosion took place.

This coyote playing golf in a backyard alone knows how to have a good time

[embedded content]

Did you know coyotes can’t pass up a chance to play golf in a backyard?

Well, maybe some of them can, but not this playful scamp who was seen tossing a golf ball around on someone’s personal putting green.

According to the video description, on May 22, a coyote wandered into a Tarzana, California, backyard and brushed up on its golf skills. The owner of the Ring camera said that after about three minutes the coyote left, but perhaps it will return for another midnight game sometime soon.

Next time you’re bored or feeling a little lonely, remember this coyote and know that you don’t need another person to have fun. If this coyote can throw a golf ball around for like three minutes, you can entertain yourself, too.

MH370 shock claim: How pilot ‘left coded messages’ in leaked pictures

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 went missing on March 8, 2014, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. The official investigation concluded that the Boeing 777 likely flew out over the Indian Ocean and crashed into the sea. However, no wreckage has ever been found there, despite extensive search attempts.

{%=o.title%}

In the absence of a definitive answer to the mystery, there have been numerous other theories that have been proposed, including one that it actually ended up on an island in the South China Sea.

Aviation engineer Ismail Hammad told Express.co.uk believes that the pilot, Captain Zahari Ahmad Shah, may have been the one behind the attack and that it is possible he left clues in pictures taken before the attack.

He said: “If the pilot of the plane, Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah, is the one who planned and carried out the hiding of the aircraft from radars and human eyes, as rumoured, I think he leaked to us a coded message symbolising the place of hiding in the first pictures that were leaked to the world of him in his home.”

This picture features the pilot, and three other people believed to be his wife and children

Mr Hammad added: “The drawing on the sofa is symbolising an archipelago.

“As if he wants to say that, whoever wants to find me and the plane, they should look for me on an island of some archipelago and not in the ocean.”

After MH370 disappeared from civilian air traffic control radar over the South China Sea on that fateful day, it took a U-turn and flew back towards Malaysia and then up the Malacca Strait towards the Andaman Islands.

This is known because the plane was still showing up on primary radar owned by the military.

However, after about an hour, the plane disappeared from military radar as well.

Mr Hammad believes, after MH370 disappeared from military radar near the Andaman Islands, it turned around again and flew back east.

He insisted that the supposed hijacker would have wanted to land the plane by around sunrise, and worked out a circle of possible destinations that the plane could have flown during that time, based on how fast it was flying.

The engineer concluded that it almost certainly flew back east and landed on an island in the South China Sea.

Mr Hammad’s theory (Image: GOOGLE MAPS / ISMAIL HAMMAD)

ne likely destination, he argued, was the Philippines, which consists of 7,641 islands, meaning there are plenty of islands to choose from, many of which are not largely populated, which would help for someone trying to disappear.

A few of the islands he listed as possible landing sites were Palawan, Mindanao, Badian, Negros, as well as the Sulu archipelago and its largest island Jolo.

He also suggested Borneo might be a good location, as there are three countries which claim areas of the Island, which helps with not attracting attention to oneself.

Indeed, whoever was in charge of MH370 the hours after it went missing seemed to be exploiting the loophole associated with border lines.

After taking a U-turn at waypoint IGARI and flying southwest and then northwest up the Malacca Strait, it flew along Flight Information Regions (FIRs) which meant the military in each country assumed the plane belonged to the other, and did not bother too much about it.

Hr Hammad told Express.co.uk: “If the hijacker decided to land and hide [in Borneo], that would have been a smart decision, because the follow of the northern part of the island belongs to the State of Malaysia itself.

“And the overlap of the border lines in this area is between three countries, which makes it a blind area for air traffic control, and these countries are Malaysia, Indonesia and The Philippines.

“Also the border lines between the many provinces of this island, especially the provinces of The North and The East Kalimantan, which are located on the eastern side of the island directly on the coast of the sea.

“This would have been an easy and incredible landing choice, especially because of the availability of the forest and the large number of swamps there.”

However, there are dozens of theories as to what happened to MH370, none of which are proven.

Bible fury: Art showing Pope begging in Milan street ‘breaches Ten Commandments’

In the capital of Italy’s Lombardy region – which has been hit particularly hard by the recent pandemic – a piece of artwork shows “Pope Francis begging, his cassock in tatters,” according to reports online. The piece in question shows what appears to be the leader of the Catholic Church lying on a cardboard mattress, using his famous briefcase as a pillow, with a cup filled with banknotes. 

{%=o.title%}

The artwork is the creation of Italian activist AleXsandro Palombo, who said his paintings were a call for solidarity in the face of a sharp rise in poverty caused by the coronavirus outbreak.

A statement earlier this week read: “Today, more than ever, we need to be aware of the needs of others, of those who are going through or are about to go through a moment of extreme need.

“Each one of us can make a difference by helping the most fragile families, and all those who have now fallen into poverty.

“This is the time to understand that the future is about generosity and solidarity.”

But, his series is sure to spark anger in the Church, as they appear to be a breach of the Ten Commandments outlined by God in the Book of Exodus.

Chapter 20:4 states: “You shall not make for yourselves an idol, nor any image of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the Earth.

“You shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them, for I, your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and on the fourth generation of those who hate me, and showing loving-kindness to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.”

Mr Palombo’s paintings appear to be making an idol of the Pope himself, a breach of the teachings that only God is the true provider of life.

The second book of the Bible warns of such behaviour when God punishes the Pharaoh’s of Egypt for worshipping their own gods, unleashing ten plagues and freeing the Israelites from slavery.

They serve as “signs and marvels” given by God to answer Pharaoh’s taunt that he does not know the true Almighty, he states: “The Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord.”

While the 10 Plagues are thought to be a warning from God for future punishments as well, it is not the first time the Italian artist has expressed himself through the Bible.

Another of his new series also shows the Madonna and Child begging.

Mr Palombo, 46, is renowned for colourful work which uses satirical art to raise awareness of social and cultural issues.

Among his other controversial paintings are “Disabled Disney Princesses” and “The Simpsons Go To Auschwitz”.

UFO sighting: Mysterious orb spotted in Brazil just days after alleged UFO crash cover-up

Footage of a bizarre UFO hovering above a village near Rio de Janeiro earlier this month has been released, sending social media into a meltdown. The footage, taken on May 18, captures a bright white orb moving over a small village before appearing to vanish. The video was filmed just a few days after the alleged UFO crash that took place in Mage, Brazil and sparked online conspiracies about a “cover-up”.

{%=o.title%}

The new UFO footage, filmed by Beatriz Venturini, lasts for approximately three minutes and has already recorded thousands of views after being posted online.

Many viewers linked the bizarre UFO sighting to the alleged UFO crash spotted over Mage, where video footage revealed mysterious lights crashing in a nearby forest just north of Rio de Janeiro.

One viewer remarked: “I saw a similar clip from what looks the the same area a couple of weeks ago somewhere, where it descends into the valley.”

Another remarked that the sighting was “definitely connected” to the UFO crash in Brazil.

However, one sceptic pointed out that the UFO “looks like the sun reflecting off something shiny”.

The alleged UFO crash sighting in mid-May sparked a global frenzy, after thousands of people were said to have witnessed the event.

The mysterious lights were captured in multiple videos from different angles and even led Magé to trend on Twitter.

These objects were spotted by residents in four towns of metropolitan ares across Rio de Janeiro.

One witness Andre Di Mauro tweeted after the sighting: “There are reports that something fell over there in a lake. But it doesn’t seem to be a satellite.”

UFO enthusiasts then shared a Google Maps link of a forest in Mage that sparked claims of a Google Maps cover-up conspiracy.

The satellite image revealed a white image glitch in a bizarre shape in a wooded area north of Rio de Janeiro.

The bizarre UFO was recorded flying over the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) in Colorado.

The UFO made a mysterious rumbling sound as it hovered and moved around the sky.

South Korean Soccer Team Used Sex Dolls To Fill Empty Stadium

The leaders of a South Korean soccer club might be feeling like boobs after they were exposed for using sex dolls to make an empty stadium look full of fans.

FC Seoul placed 30 mannequins around its stadium for a game against Gwangju FC, adding signs of life to stands void of spectators because of the coronavirus pandemic. The Seoul club said in a statement it believed the figures were ordinary mannequins.

The action on the field must not have been that great. People watching quickly noticed that some of the fake fans wore clothing advertising sex toys and that many of them were especially busty. As the BBC noted, pornography is banned in South Korea.

“We had tried to add some fun in the no-spectator match,” FC Seoul said in a statement, according to The New York Times. “But we have not checked all the details, and that is clearly our fault.” The Associated Press said the team expressed “sincere remorse.”

The team said it was assured by the doll supplier that the figures weren’t sex products. FC Seoul didn’t explain why it chose Dalkom, a company known for sex dolls, for the job.

Cheering mannequins are installed at the empty spectators’ seats before the start of soccer match between FC Seoul and Gwangju FC at the Seoul World Cup Stadium in Seoul, South Korea. 

Dalcom director Cho Young-june told the BBC that the sex logos should have been removed from the dolls prior to the game, “but there were several hairbands and logos left to be caught by public eye.”

FC Seoul could face consequences beyond embarrassment. The league has a rule against inappropriate or sexual advertisements, so the team could be fined.

“It is not easy to say whether this breaks the rules, as it is not a clear violation,” an unidentified K League official told ESPN. “We are trying to get a clear interpretation.”

‘Struggling’ Zuckerberg decides doing nothing is best when it comes to Trump

Mark Zuckerberg has officially weighed in and —surprise! — after much deliberation has decided that doing nothing is the right and just thing.

On Friday afternoon, the Facebook CEO posted a lengthy note explaining his company’s labored response to Donald Trump’s threats against Minneapolis protesters responding to the police killing of George Floyd. Despite Trump’s post on Facebook, which clearly reads as threatening to have the protestors shot, Zuckerberg wrote that the proper thing to do was leave the post up. 

Thankfully, Zuckerberg had the courage to do, well, nothing. 

“I know many people are upset that we’ve left the President’s posts up, but our position is that we should enable as much expression as possible unless it will cause imminent risk of specific harms or dangers spelled out in clear policies,” wrote Zuckerberg. 

In contrast, Twitter stuck a warning label over a tweet by the president with the same content. But even such a step, apparently, is too far for Zuckerberg who wrote, “that if a post incites violence, it should be removed regardless of whether it is newsworthy[.]” Zuck, it should be noted, knows a thing or two about his platform being used to incite violence.

In October, Zuckerberg sang a wildly different tune in his testimony to the House.

“If anyone, including a politician, is saying things that can cause, that is calling for violence or could risk imminent physical harm […] we will take that content down,” he told Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

In today’s post, Zuckerberg wrote that: “People can agree or disagree on where we should draw the line, but I hope they understand our overall philosophy is that it is better to have this discussion out in the open, especially when the stakes are so high.”

And indeed, the stakes are high — both for the protesters in Minneapolis and for those around the country seeking justice for George Floyd. 

They’re also high for Zuckerberg, but in a much different way. Instead of risking life, limb, or liberty, Zuckerberg is risking pissing off Trump. Heaven forbid.
