    There's several short videos in the link. They aren't transferable.
    Mysterious red flash in the skies over Bethel, Ohio remains unexplained in video - Strange Sounds
    So what were the mysterious flash lights in the sky over Bethel, Ohio?

    The story starts when a father and his daughter were taking the trash out Sunday evening at their Bethel home.

    As they were crossing the front-house garden, the girl made like ‘Dad! Look at the light in the sky! What is that?’

    Apparent meteor seen on video flashes across SoCal night sky

    Residents in Southern California were treated to a bright sight Wednesday night, prompting many to take to social media.

    An apparent meteor flashed over the region and was caught on camera. On social media, residents took video of the large bright light resembling a meteor as it flashed across the night sky. Video from a person in San Diego showed streaking lights as it broke into several smaller pieces and dropped out of sight.

    'Angelic' Weather Phenomenon Photographed in England



    A man walking atop a tall hill in England was amazed when he noticed that the weather conditions had given rise to an eerie phenomenon in which it appears that an angelic figure is floating in the sky. Lee Howdle reportedly saw the wondrous sight last Friday during a visit to a location known as Mam Tor. As he reached the pinnacle of the nearly 1,700-foot mound, he looked down and spotted something truly breathtaking in the clouds below him.

    "My shadow looked huge. It was in this circular rainbow," he recalled, "it was like an angel in the sky over the hills." Howdle immediately recognized that he was witnessing a relatively rare meteorological phenomenon called 'Brocken Spectre.' This effect occurs when one stands at a high location with the sun behind them and clouds beneath them so that their shadow appears both significantly larger and with a colorful halo, known as a 'glory,' around it.

    Remarkably, as his walk progressed, he actually encountered a sheep on the hill and saw that it, too, was producing a Brocken Spectre of its own. Fortunately, Howdle managed to snap several pictures of the 'angels' in his midst (showcased in the video above) and, upon posting them online, the images quickly went viral. Looking back on the experience, he mused that "it's really amazing and I feel very blessed to have captured such a magical moment."

    First and Only ‘Death By Meteorite’ Has Been Confirmed

    The annals of death certificates include many unusual causes of death, such as impaled by golf club, overuse of spray deodorant, exploding lava lamp, hit too hard by tennis ball and the subject of probability comparisons – struck by lightning. One cause that has never been listed is “Killed by meteor” … until now. Long-hidden state documents were translated recently and they describe the death of a man stuck by a meteorite in 1888 in – no, not Siberia, but thanks for playing – Iraq.

    “To the best of our knowledge, we show the first proof of an event ever that a meteorite hit and killed a man and left paralyzed another on August 22, 1888 in Sulaymaniyah, Iraq, based on three manuscripts written in Ottoman Turkish that were extracted from the General Directorate of State Archives of the Presidency of the Republic of Turkey.”

    The journal Meteoritics and Planetary Science published the findings of Ozan Unsalan, scientist from Ege University in Turkey, Altay Bayatli, history professor at Trakya University in Turkey, and Peter Jenniskens, astronomer and meteor showers expert at NASA Ames Research Center. They came from three letters hidden in Ottoman empire papers in Turkey’s state archives that were written in the Ottoman Turkish language, a complicated and hard-to-decipher combination of Arabic and Persian that was mainly used by upper class Turks.

    For example, the first letter, dated September 13, 1888, was to the government of Sultan Abdulhamit II from the governor of Sulaymaniyah. He told the leader of witnesses reporting a fireball and many meteorites hitting a village in what is now Sulaymaniyah, Iraq, but was then part of the Ottoman Empire. The letter stated that a meteorite killed on male villager, hit and paralyzed another, and – what the sultan was really concerned about because of the tax implications – destroyed crops.

    Close but no cigar

    Proving that politicians haven’t changed, the governor’s second letter asked the sultan what he should do and sent a piece of the meteorite as evidence with the third letter. Unfortunately, the researchers have yet to find the meteorite chunk nor what the sultan advised his wishy-washy, can’t-make-his-own-meteorite-decision governor to do. However, they believe that the letters, coming from one leader to his superior, are sufficient proof that they’re legitimate, which means this is the first and only record of a human being killed by a meteorite.

    Wait a minute, the statistical side of your brain shouts. Of all the meteorites falling on all the towns in all the world in all of history, this is the only one to fall on a human? Highly likely, says NASA, which maintains a fireball database showing at least 822 big meteorites entering the atmosphere just since 1988 and none hitting a person. Yes, says history, which shows only one person ever reported to be hit by a meteorite — Ann Hodges, who was asleep on her couch in Oak Grove, Alabama, on November 30, 1954, when the Sylacauga meteorite (now called the Hodges meteorite for obvious reasons) crashed through the roof and seriously injured her hip. napping on her couch in 1954 when the rock fell through her roof and hit her hip. Hodges survived, as did the meteorite, which is now in the Alabama Museum of Natural History.

    3 Little Aliens Dancing Above A Huge Cloud Over Ashville, Alabama

    ‎Yesterday, Joshua Smith‎ posted on the James Spann meteorologist Facebook page, pictures of a very strange-looking cloud formation over a huge cumulonimbus cloud.

    [​IMG]

    The images were shot off of I-59 and the large cloud with its three small dancing twisters atop was coming through Ashville, Alabama.

    [​IMG]

    James Spann stated: “For those asking, I do not have a good explanation. Seems like some kind of pileus cap trying to form, but I have not seen look them like this before.“

    Pretty amazing for an all knowing weatherman, isn’t it? Well, I must say I really don’t know how this weird cloud phenomenon took place. Is it a remnant of storm Isaias?

    Brightest fireball in years 900 times more intense than the full moon turns midnight sky into day over China

    On Aug. 16th, the brightest fireball in years exploded in the atmosphere over the city of Linyi, turning the midnight sky blue.

    The flash was so bright that night turned into day for miles around, and the sound from the explosion was so strong that buildings shook.

    “The meteor illuminated the whole earth and shook the landscape with a loud sound,” reports CMMO staff member Zhou Kun. “The flash of light, which peaked at 22:59 pm local time, was widely observed across the Shandong and Jiangsu provinces of China.“
