JUST IN: Former President Donald Trump was rushed off stage after he fell to the ground at the start of a rally in Butler, Pennsylvania, Saturday night.
It was not immediately clear what caused Trump to fall. He raised a fist and yelled back to members of the crowd before he was rushed away.


Looks like he was actually shot with something. He raises up his hand to his ear before crouching/falling

Helicopter and UAP over Winnipeg

This video was posted as a Reddit thread in the /r/Winnipeg sub


Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/Winnipeg/comments/1duyh0p/does_anyone_know_what_this_was_about/

It was later posted to r/ufos

I've attached a downloaded version here



I've not had time to look into it much but it seems a fun test, the building should be easy to find, but I can't find it it says 300 something on it, there's a 300 Main street in Winnipeg but with a brief look I couldn't correlate it, and no exact time is given, but I took a few mins to look at a ADSB Exchange data for a few hours before the video was posted for helo activity over Winnipeg but couldn't find it either.

I'm sure someone else will have more time and better skills.

https://www.ryangraves.io/p/part-i-why-pilots-arent-reporting

From a post by Ryan Graves (posted Jun 28, 2024). Since it's a paid post I'm just extracting the minimum details:
  • a routine red-eye from São Paulo to New York
  • It began with a very bright point of light appearing directly off their nose, seemingly co-altitude with their Boeing 777 at 37,000 feet.
  • It became apparent, due to the changing aspect, that they were witnessing an extremely long object traveling at speeds that far exceeded anything familiar to them.
  • They estimated the object to be over a half mile long and at an altitude of about 90,000 feet.
  • The luminous, ellipse-shaped anomaly passed directly over their aircraft on what had initially appeared to be a collision course.
  • Before it disappeared from view, Captain R managed to capture the photograph [above]
  • The entire encounter lasted 30...

Sitrec Models and Geometries, Lighting, and a new UI

  • 661

New UI first. That drop down on the left was getting way too busy, so I've changed it to a menu/widget system that I hacked together from the existing lil-gui code
2024-06-28_10-12-26.jpg


The menus can be detached from the bar and then remain open. You can drag them back or double-click on the title to send it back.

Things are organized as logically as possible under traditional menus. But it's only partly done. The first menu is still the catch-all for sitch-specific items that probably belong elsewhere. It will evolve; I just need to make a couple of passes.

Time sliders now wrap at the end and increment/decrement the one above, making it much easier to adjust the time.

Lighting is now more accurate to time/date, with the sun's direction being very accurate.

Here's a new model inspector; the yellow arrow points towards the sun.

Michelle Reyes, LaGuardia UFO from Plane Window

This video was shot on March 24th, 2024, but recently showed up on a NewsNation segment with an interview of Michelle. Ben Hansen was in the segment, persumable as a representative of Engima Labs who had done some analysis, determining it was not fake, probably outside the plane, and not that far away, but bigger than an insect.

I agree it's outside. It's much more in focus than the window

AARO's Historical UAP Report - Volume 1

SECTION II: Executive Summary

AARO found no evidence that any USG investigation, academic-sponsored research,or official review panel has confirmed that any sighting of a UAP represented extraterrestrial technology. All investigative efforts, at all levels of classification, concluded that most sightings were ordinary objects and phenomena and the result of misidentification. Although not the focus of this report, it is worthwhile to note that all official foreign UAP investigatory efforts to date have reached the same general conclusions as USG investigations.

  • Although many UAP reports remain unsolved or unidentified, AARO assesses that if more and better quality data were available, most of these cases also could bei dentified and resolved as ordinary objects or phenomena. Sensors and visual observations are imperfect; the vast majority of cases lack...

DECLASSIFIED SUMMARY:
On 26 Jan 23, an USAF pilot gained radar lock on four separate UAP. Upon approach, the pilot was able to make visual contact and employ sensors to obtain a screen capture of the first of these objects. The remaining three were only detected by radar.

UAP-1 likened to an "Apollo spacecraft" in size and shape, with an "orange-reddish" illuminated rounded bottom and the top section "a three-dimensional cone shape" comprising "gunmetal gray segmented panels."

UAP-1 operated at an altitude of about 16,000 above ground level (AGL). The second and third UAPs were noted at altitudes of 17,000 and 18,000. The fourth was lost from radar and no altitude was noted. Moreover, no airspeeds were noted for any of the UAP in this report.

Another video was taken somewhere in the US; the person wants to remain anonymous, so the date and time are not given. The plane was said to be at 34,000 feet and filmed using a PVS-14 Gen 3 white phosphorus night vision scope through an iPhone. The constellation is in the direction of Cassiopeia, and judging by the alignment, it is probably around 2:45 a.m.

Filmed by our team in Pahrump, Nevada facing north over the Nuclear Test Site and Area 6 portion of the NTTR. Also in the same general direction are the Tonopah Test Range and Area 51. Tonopah on the left (west), Area 51 on the right (east).

The second clip seen in the video, is 11+ minutes. All videos of the objects have the speed increased +300% to show the directions of the objects. Is this satellites? Is space that crowded? Is this some sort of test? The objects seem to be moving in different directions, Starlink satellites move exactly the same. What is happening over Area 6?
