A video uploaded to popular conspiracy channel, SecureTeam10, on YouTube shows the strange disc which was unearthed by the Russian miners.
The team, who were part of the Kuzbassrazrezugol mining company, were mining in the remote region of Volgograd when they found the ‘UFOs’ some 40 metres underground.
The disc is around 1.2 metres in diameter and weighs roughly 440 lbs – or 31 stone.
The narrator of the video claims that the object was “found to have been coated in a metal known as tungsten … this is a metal that has typically been used in technology that belongs to the military”
“Tungsten has one of the highest melting points and is commonly used in things that are put up in space due to the fact that they can withstand the extremely high temperatures that occur when an object enters the atmosphere.”
The narrator of the video says that theories are spreading that “these objects actually hold the remains of extra-terrestrial beings.
“They obviously look artificial, they’re all in the shape of a flying saucer … not to mention the fact they were found deep underground in a mine.”
Excavator Boris Glazkov, who found the object, said: “I have to say it wasn’t hard to see as it was really distinctive and large.
“I’ve never seen anything like this object, which is obviously man-made, out here in the middle of nowhere before. It is a real mystery.”
His colleague, Arthur Presnyakov, added: “There were actually two similar objects, but the first one broke as it was being pulled out of the ground by the excavator bucket.
“We thought we saw something sure, because it broke into pieces, but then when the second one appeared we stopped work and carefully removed it from the bucket.”
However, commenters on the video were not as convinced.
One person wrote: “Looks like a type of a mill stone.”
Another said: “How could anyone possibly think that is a UFO just because they are saucer shaped.”
BANGKOK (Reuters) – An advertising agency in Thailand has developed a “smart vest” that potentially could turn stray dogs into guardians of Bangkok’s streets and alleyways.
Equipped with a hidden video camera, the vest has sensors that transmit live streaming videos when the dog barks, showing what the dog sees via a mobile phone and computer application.
There are stray dogs on the streets of most Thai cities and the developer thought smart vests could help both the dogs and the community.
“It will make people feel that stray dogs can become night-watches for the communities,” said Pakornkrit Khantaprap, 28, who is on the creative team that came up with the idea at the Cheil advertising agency, a subsidiary of South Korea’s Samsung Electronics.
Martin Turner, managing director of the Phuket-based Soi Dog Foundation, which was formed over a decade ago to save stray dogs and cats across Thailand, welcomed the initiative.
Turner says there are many cases of cruelty against animals in Thailand, despite the introduction of the country’s first Animal Welfare Law in late 2014, which penalizes wrongdoers with a maximum two years’ imprisonment and a 40,000 baht ($1,205) fine.
The project began in March this year and took about five months to materialize.
The developer says a lot more tests are needed before the vest can be introduced into communities for trial runs.
UFO hunters Tim and Tracey Doyle, who run YouTube channel UFO seekers, took them with specialist telescopic lenses from the top of 1.4-mile high Tikaboo Peak, a mountain 25 miles opposite the mysterious base.
The heavily guarded Area 51, deep in the Nevada desert, is at the centre of many alien-related conspiracy theories.
It is claimed that alien flying saucers crashed on Earth, such as the alleged 1947 Roswell incident, and that the wreckage and even corpses were taken to Area 51 for experimentation and to be analysed away from public view.
One theory suggests that USAF scientists have tried to emulate the alien technology to create their own top-secret spy craft capable of travelling into space at the base.
Area 51 has been used by American aviation authorities since 1955 and is closed off to those without top-level security clearance.
However, the US Government did not even admit the base existed until 2013, in a series of documents released as part of a Freedom of Information request, and it is heavily protected by armed guards.
The images obtained by the pair show what looks like a water tower, several complexes, and vehicles moving around.
There is no sign of any stored UFOs or alien activity in the pictures.
Thousands visit the remote area of Nevada every year in the hope of seeing ETs.
Many more sceptical people believe Area 51 is so top-secret, because it is where the USAF designed and tests experimental new spy planes and air craft.
It is accepted that the USAF does secretly test new aircraft inside Area 51, with the U-2 spy plane, SR-71 Blackbird, and the F-117A Nighthawk stealth fighter all developed there.
Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual, said: “Area 51 has always been a magnet for those who believe the US Government knows a lot more about UFOs than they are prepared to reveal to the public.”
The area is so mysterious that US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton made a shock promise that she would declassify all secret Area 51 files.
And more recently alien hunters claimed they had found a UFO inside a climate controlled hanger near Area 51 using Google Maps.
Breakthrough Listen used instruments at the Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia to observe that location over 5 hours on Saturday, detecting 15 bursts over the entire 4 to 8 GHz frequency band, the organization said in a news release.
“It’s very funky how the individual bursts can pop up anywhere in this wide range of frequencies, even though each individual burst has a relatively narrow frequency coverage,” Peter Williams of Harvard University told New Scientist. “I have yet to see anyone offer up a good explanation for how that might happen.”
Breakthrough Listen created a GIF showing 14 of the 15 signals in succession:
“Possible explanations for FRBs range from outbursts from rotating neutron stars with extremely strong magnetic fields, to more speculative ideas that they are directed energy sources used by extraterrestrial civilizations to power spacecraft,” the organization said.
However, they conceded that it was purely speculative, and several other scientists have cautioned against linking these bursts to possible alien intelligence.
“Just to be clear, we don’t know what is causing the fast radio bursts we see, but we don’t think it’s anything to do with aliens!” wrote astronomer Emily Petroff of the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy in 2015 in relation to a different FRB detected by her team.
How they are caused remains up for debate, and in the case of FRB 121102 the repeats add to the mystery. While some radio bursts could be caused by a single catastrophic event such as a supernova, those events wouldn’t repeat.
And in this case, the location ― a dwarf galaxy with just 1 percent of the mass of our own Milky Way ― makes the signal even harder to explain.
“It is surprising that the host would be a dwarf galaxy,” Shriharsh Tendulkar of McGill University in Montreal, Canada, said in a news release earlier this year. “One would generally expect most FRBs to come from large galaxies which have the largest numbers of stars and neutron stars. Neutron stars – remnants of massive stars – are among the top candidates to explain FRBs.”
The distance of the dwarf galaxy is another complicating factor. It’s so far away that the signals detected here today left their source at a time when life on Earth was limited to single-cell organisms.
“It would be another billion years before even the simplest multi-cellular life began to evolve,” Breakthrough Listen said.
The organization said more information will be presented in an upcoming article to be published in a scientific journal.
The internet has gone wild with conspiracy theories about a mythical planet, also called Nibiru, that believers claim will pass Earth next month and cause catastrophic earthquakes.
The warnings are not taken seriously by genuine astronomers, but they have revealed they will have their telescopes trained on the night sky in a bid to find the real Planet X.
Astronomers from the internet observatory Slooh.com have called for everyone to join in the search for Planet X.
There is the conspiracy theory that the mythical planet, which allegedly orbits the sun every 3,600 years, will soon pass the Earth causing death and destruction.
Planet 9 or Planet X does exist believe scientists.
And in January NASA announced the discovery of a hypothetical ninth planet way out in our solar system that is believed to be 10 times the mass of Earth with an orbital length around the sun of 18,000 years.
However, the space organisation has denied Planet X poses any risk to Earth and labelled the Nibiru conspiracy theory an internet hoax.
NASA scientists called it Planet 9, but instead of using this to shut down the conspiracy theory they appeared to fuel it by nicknaming it Planet X as well.
Last night Slooh.com screened a video which revealed how astronomers believe they have a telescope strong enough to spot the real Planet X (Planet 9), if it indeed exists.

Kepler telescope discovers 1,284 new planets
Dr Paige Godfrey, Slooh director of research, said: “An 18,000 year orbit around the sun – that is just insane.
“So that means it’s moving so far away and moving so slowly around the sun, to where we are.
“Night to night you would not see a huge difference in the way you could blink through the motion of Pluto.
“Now they think they will be able to find it, because of the computer models made from the mathematical calculations.
“They think they know the size and they think they know its current location, and they need to be able to constrain the orbit to that needed to map an estimate, and all that they needed was an estimate of how bright it is.

“And they needed a telescope capable of seeing it and now they have that with the Subaru telescope of the Mauna Kea Observatory on Hawaii.”
The search will not be easy, however, as it is estimated it will only be as bright as a brown dwarf star and will be in the same field of vision as thousands of much brighter stars in our galaxy the Milky Way.
Slooh host Paul Cox said: “It is kind of at the heart of the Milky Way with so many stars in the field of view as we try to find this faint object.”
Dr Godfrey replied: “It has a brightness of magnitude 22. It is pretty dim, like a brown dwarf.
“So it is not going to be easy to see but it is definitely doable with the Subaru and the eight metre telescope.”
News of a major scientific hunt will send shockwaves through conspiracy theorists who already took the announcement of Planet 9 as proof of Nibiru earlier this year.

From mind control, to the missing Malaysian airways flight MH370

In 2011, Osama Bin Laden was killed by US Navy Seals and buried at sea, but now conspiracy theorists claim that it was all a lie and he is still alive
Despite NASA insisting there is no threat to Earth and Nibiru is a hoax, YouTube is awash with videos claiming it will be visible in our skies from September 23.
Christian numerologist David Meade is pushing the theory, claiming that codes in the Bible gave him the date and that Planet X will pass us causing earthquakes and devastation in October.
The Nibiru Cataclysm myth dates back to 1976, when writer Zecharia Sitchin claimed that two ancient Middle Eastern cultures – the Babylonians and Sumerians – told of the giant Nibiru which orbited the Sun every 3,600 years.
Self-proclaimed extraterrestrial psychic Nancy Lieder then warned Nibiru would crash into Earth or pass it causing huge earthquakes and tidal waves from the gravitation pull.
Various alleged dates for a strike with Earth have come and gone, as it is expected the October one will.
“I was a little bit surprised just because of the time it is of day, and I feel like a lot of people have to work, but it seems like a lot of people have been calling and asking if we have WiFi. They’re planning on bringing their laptops and working from the bar.”
As perilous storms rip through Texas and surrounding States, preacher Max Lucado of Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, took the time to warn that the likes of Hurricane Harvey are signs of the apocalypse and rapture.
Hundreds of thousands of people have been left homeless due to the devastating flood which has also claimed the lives of at least 39 people so far.
This, according to Mr Lucado, is a sign that the world as we know it is about to end – and world leaders are apparently ignoring the signs.
The preacher points to a passage in Matthew 16:3, where Jesus says: “You find it easy enough to forecast the weather—why can’t you read the signs of the times?”
Writing on his personal blog, Mr Lucado says that the catastrophes around the world are a sign of the world experiencing “birth pangs” – pain during labour as “she” (the planet in this instance) prepares to birth the new world.
Mr Lucado says: “Birth pangs must occur before a new birth.
“Our world is experiencing a rash of birth pangs these days. It is not to me to declare the day the Lord will return.
“But we know this much: it’s the beginning of the end and the beginning of new beginnings.
“Calamities and catastrophes must occur before the birth of the new world.”
“Jesus promised that bad things would occur. But they won’t occur forever.
“What rescuers are doing for Houstonians, God will do for you. He has entered your world. He has dropped a rope into your sin-swamped life.
“He will rescue, you simply need to do what many stranded people are doing–let him lift you out.
“Listen to the lessons of Harvey. Let the storm remind you of the value of relationships, people and, most of all, the promise of heaven.”
According to the US Federal Emergency Management Agency, around 364,000 people have sought federal emergency aid because of Hurricane Harvey since it made land on August 25.
A hawk became an unlikely sidekick to a Texas cab driver after seeking refuge inside the man’s vehicle and apparently refusing to leave.
Houston driver William Bruso said he was stocking up on supplies on Friday ahead of Hurricane Harvey when he returned to find the bird sitting on his passenger seat.
“He looks like he’s scared. He doesn’t know what’s going on,” Bruso narrates in one of 10 YouTube videos documenting the bird’s surprise visit. “He just kind of hopped on in and doesn’t want to leave. I’m not sure what to make of it.”
Bruso said he tried to shoo the hawk away, to no avail. Videos later showed the animal perched on the door of his parked car, still refusing to fly away. Bruso eventually took thebird inside and gave it chicken hearts to snack on.
It didn’t take long for the feathered refugee to earn the name “Harvey the Hurricane Hawk” from Bruso ― as well as a flock of concerned and curious fans.
“He’s been free to go, any time now, but they’re going to take him,” Bruso said as a woman with TWRC retrieved Harvey. “He may need to be rehabilitated so everyone knows he’s in good hands.”
A TWRC spokeswoman confirmed to HuffPost in an email on Sunday that the bird is “safe with a licensed rehabilitator.” She also shared a video of the hawk in a cage.
“He has an injury that is preventing him from flying, so would not have survived the storm if he was not picked up,” an unidentified woman is heard saying in the video.
The woman also notes that road flooding is preventing rescuers from reaching the wildlife center to perform an X-ray on the bird. Once the roads clear up, the hawk and other animals will undergo full checkups, she says.
