I grew up in rural NWPA, surrounded in forest. I took an early interest in cryprozoology and sharks and have read many books on various crypto subjects such as Bigfoot and Megalodon over the years. I am not a professional writer or a journalist, but I do the best I can. I have a quirky, obscurely dry and sometimes sarcastic sense of humor than can get me in trouble. Some love me and some hate me, but I am who I am.

A very strange UFO was sighted over Los Cristianos, Spain last Saturday, August 21.

The witness, Jamie O’Rourke spotted the oddly shaped object near his house around 8:00am.

Jamie had the presence of mind to grab a camera and snap some pictures before the UFO was out of sight.

One of the more unique UFOs seen over the years it was elongated and looked very similar to a Scorpion with pincer like appendages at one end and a stinger tail at the other.

Frankly, I think it’s kind of cool and would love to have seen video of this strange craft.

In one of the most unusual recent UFO sightings, a scorpion-shaped object was spotted in the skies above Los Cristianos, Spain on Saturday, August 21, 2011. Jamie O’Rourke saw the unidentified flying object near his home around 8:00am and managed to snap several photos before the object disappeared.

An Internet search for scorpion-shaped kites did not reveal anything like the bizarre object seen in the photos on the left side of this page. A similar search for scorpion-shaped UFOs also revealed nothing. The strange unidentified flying object photographed in Los Cristianos seems to defy logic or explanation at this time.

You can see from the photos that this UFO was elongated in shape and dark in color. It had two protruding appendages on one end that resembled the pincers or claws of a scorpion. On the opposite end, the UFO had a long tail that looked like the tail or stinger of a scorpion.

UFO Global Reporting Center has the scoop on this UFO sighting on their blog. They reported: “One of our [UFO Global Reporting Center’s] subscribers Jamie O’Rourke (FaceBook) sent us these images. Jamie took these images near his house around 20th Street, about 8:00am on August 21, 2011.”

Very interesting in my opinion. Of course you all know how I am with my tendency to see red flags. The only thing that bothers me is that the pics almost look like drawings.

In fact I get the distinct impression that I’ve seen these somewhere before, like on a cartoon. I suppose anyone with experience could use an animation still frame cel to do such a hoax. However, I am in no way claiming it to be a hoax. I will be the first to admit that I am no expert on photography or film. Maybe some of our experienced photogs will be able to help in that respect.

After talking in the comments about boomerangs I did this drawing. Looks fairly close.

    @ Henry: ps, Tenerife is not huge, but it is a huge tourist resort. At 8 am on a Saturday, it is a solid bet that anybody with a Irish or British surname will be drunk and/or tripping. He was probably passed out in his yard, and thus well-placed to aim his phone into the sky.

  • Rob

    Reminds me of those RC quad-helicopters. Plus the first image is all stretched out compared to the other one. So your drawing above is probably about what it really looked like.

  • Henry

    Roger, that requires a number of assumptions on which we have no information, and as such is no basis to draw a conclusion from.

  • dana

    looks like a Klingon battle cruiser to me

  • Sue

    I’m not a sceptic when it comes to UFOs . . .
    but the outline of this thing looks suspiciously like a Klingon Bird of Prey
    (The Search for Spock, The Voyage Home).
    Link for photo of a model:

  • This is probably a man-made craft if it’s in fact real. If everybody is in agreement here, all UFOs ever captured on film has been the disk or the cigar shape and the much publicized boomerang shape in the 1997 Phoenix lights case. This looks like a shape that would set man and alien apart! Everybody knows man is an arrogant creature and tries to out do anybody and everybody, and lets face it, it’s really COOL LOOKING! Lets not forget what Ben Rich said ” We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity……… anything you could imagine we already know how to do”. http://www.ufo-blogger.com/2010/08/ufo-are-real-ben-rich-lockheed-skunk.html

    Excellent! To come up with a Sky Scorpion design is very innovative. Remember the Extraterrestrial People used stylized scorpions in their DNA Pentagonal Scorpion crop formation of July 4, 2001. Would have been good to view video of the Sky Scorpion.

    For those that have not seen my comments on that formation click on the following link and scroll to the end of the page:


    By the way, I am planning an upcoming post in the ‘Extraterrestrial person smoking a PEACE pipe’ crop formation thread which provides some very important and interesting information from another one of the Extraterrestrial People’s crop formations.

    The BEST Thing Humanity can do is get EXCITED! Confidence is HIGH!!!

    That should have read July 4, 2011.

    It’s a frisbee like toy thrown in the air and then photographed.

  • Briandiamond

    I saw this on the same night in a different part of Spain,But sadly did not have a camera on me.It was flying in a strait line and went behind mountains. The mountains are 30 kms away.So this could nod be a frisbee etc.
