Top 5 Unexplained Mysteries of 2017

Our world is full of unexplained phenomena that make many of us ponder: Are we really alone in the universe?

In Edge of Wonder, a show that explores life’s mysteries and our wondrous universe, I take viewers to a world where supernatural phenomena and unexplained mysteries are at the forefront.

In the past few months, UFOs and the conversation revolving around aliens has been a hot topic in mainstream news. With events such as the recent disclosure of the Pentagon’s top secret UFO research unit and Stephen Hawkin’s scientific think tank, Breakthrough Initiatives raising the question if the mysterious object Oumuamua is actually an extraterrestrial spacecraft, many people are searching and looking for answers.

In my first episode, I list the top five unexplained mysteries of 2017.

Number 5: A Strange Light Phenomenon

strange lights


Earlier this month reddit user Machinegamer posted images which he says were taken by his boss in 1997. He said his boss would pick on him from time to time because he is conspiracy theorist and then one day his boss tells him, “did I ever tell you my ufo story?”

In the post he writes:

“20 or so years ago I was driving in northern Michigan near glen harbor at 2:30am in the middle of nowhere and all of a sudden my entire car lit up.

“He described this insane light and shrieking noise that hurt his ears… and he’s going on and on and im [Sic] waiting for him to laugh and be all like gotcha!!

 He said he got out and this craft was hovering over him for what seemed like a very long time, he was afraid. Then he remembers he had his camera, so he took it out and said he took pictures.” (reddit)

Light pillars

So what are these lights exactly? Well some people said what he saw was Frozen light pillars A light phenomenon that happens in very cold temperatures.

In some ways it does seem this is what he photographed in 1997. However, light pillars do not emit any sounds, so it doesn’t explain the loud sound and the craft that he reportedly saw. Also he didn’t share this for 20 years, so if he was making it up, why didn’t he tell everyone right away?

Number 4: Asteroid ‘Oumuamua’ could be an alien spaceship claims Stephen Hawking

A scientific think tank called Breakthrough Initiatives, which is backed by Stephen Hawking and Mark Zuckerberg, is searching for evidence of life on the mysterious interloper Oumuamua as it tears through our solar system. This has brought much attention because of its shape and speed at which it is traveling.

The cigar-shaped object is about 3 football fields long and is the first interstellar object from outside of the solar system ever observed. It was first spotted zipping through the solar system on Oct. 19, at nearly 200,000 miles per hour. It is believed by scientists that it has been traveling across interstellar space for hundreds of millions of years.

After many hours of scanning and analyzing data what they thought was an asteroid, scientists now believe it is a comet made of ice just disguised with a protective crust.

However, there is one thing that scientists are failing to make known about this mysterious object.

Oumuamua came from the star Vega, which is the brightest star in the constellation Lyra, and is over 25 lightyears away. Vega is also one of the most popular stars mentioned in science fiction stories as well as in conspiracy theories. It also just passed Earth at a distance of about that of 85 times as far away as the Moon.

Which sounds far, but when you think about how far it traveled it would be equivalent to firing a bullet from New York City to Florida and hitting a target the size of a golf ball.

Number 3: The Pentagon’s Top Secret UFO Program

The U.S. Defense Department created a secret unit called Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, which, thanks to 22 million dollars of taxpayers money, was investigating reports of UFOs for years.

The New York Times reported that Senator Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat who was the Senate majority leader at the time, was responsible for the secretive program to be founded. Even his long term friend and billionaire Robert Bigelow, who is currently with NASA said in a 60 Minutes interview that he was “absolutely convinced” that UFOs have came here before and that aliens are real. (NY Times)

In the video released by the US Air Force, we can see this craft bewildering foul mouth f-18 pilots who at first believe it must be a drone…that is until it starts rotating.

Also Luis Elizondo, the Intelligence official who was in charge of the secret UFO bureau said to CNN that “We may not be alone.”

However, it seems ever since this report came out, talking about UFOs and aliens… doesn’t seem to be a taboo topic anymore in mainstream news.

Number 2: Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera, Florida Congressional Candidate, Says She Was Abducted by Aliens

The Miami Herald contacted Rodriguez Aguilera on Oct. 13 to ask about her experiences with extraterrestrials and got the following statement:

“For years people, including Presidents like Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter and astronauts have publicly claimed to have seen unidentified flying objects and scientists like Stephen Hawking and institutions like the Vatican have stated that there are billions of galaxies in the universe and we are probably not alone. I personally am a Christian and have a strong belief in God, I join the majority of Americans who believe that there must be intelligent life in the billions of planets and galaxies in the universe.”

In a 2009 interview she gave an interview to a Spanish language TV station which she said she was first contacted by aliens when she was 7 years old and was instructed telepathically to visit them in their spaceship.

She said the craft was controlled by quartz stones, and that the aliens looked similar to the blonde female host who was interviewing her.

Ms. Aguilera said they made predictions about people she would meet in her life—down to the year, month, and day—that came to pass.

She also hinted in the 2009 interview that they told her about ISIS—or possibly the Egyptian goddess Isis.

Also Well, back in 2009 former-First Lady, wife of Yukio Hatoyama, who was Prime Minister of Japan from 2009 to 2010, also claimed to have been abducted by Aliens. She also said she had a past life with Tom Cruise.

Number 1: A Floating City over China

A real floating city in the clouds over China was captured in China last January. The extraordinary phenomenon baffled many people with some saying that it could be all kinds of things.

In the video you can hear many people getting excited by what they are seeing.

So What is causing this? Well some say it could be a secret HAARP weather controlling device called Project Blue Beam and ome say it could be something we are seeing from a different dimension.

When talking about a parallel universe, Harvard University theorist Lisa Randall believes an extra dimension may exist close to our familiar reality, however, she believes it would only be observable only if the gravity is weaker at once place andstronger in another. In which case you may see evidence of this other dimension.

So what does that mean? Let’s say that another space-time exists right here right now, but we can’t see it. Due to an imbalance in gravity or maybe even something else maybe it is possible that a rift in our time-space would open up and you would be able to see into a different space-time.

Now is this what is happening in the video? Maybe, maybe there is just something else. Maybe this could explain the Bermuda Triangle mystery, but that would be a whole different topic.

The Interesting thing is that it does happen happen in China quite a bit and not as much as other areas. So could there be a gateway or portal over China?

So could be just be a mirage, the only thing is these floating cities are so detailed, some have even reported of seeing people, so it is hard for people to explain.

In Buddhism, it is mentioned that our universe consists of 81 levels of dimensions and Buddha Shakyamuni often spoke of other dimensions.

Meteorologists have dubbed these mirages as “Fata Morgana” (which sounds like a character from Star Wars) which is a very complex mirage which is has many roots in folklore and can be seen on land, sea, desert, and sometimes the object is completely unrecognizable.

However, can this theory explain an entire city floating in clouds? And with some even witnessing people in them. So what does this mean over all. Unfortunately, this is why it remains unexplained, so either you believe that there is a complex scientific explanation or you could believe that our universe holds many wonders and mysteries that our modern standardize science is not able to explain.
