I would like nothing more than the proof of various cryptids, alien civilizations, even alien visitors to be found. But that proof will come only through rigorous science and objective analysis, and by holding evidence to the highest standards of scrutiny. Born in south eastern Pennsylvania, i have found myself at one time or another living in Chicago, Cleveland, Raleigh-Durham, on the island of Kaua'i and finally landed on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. I have turned my hand to various professions from early work in 3d graphics to historic building restoration, carpentry and log home building to working in a bronze art foundry on the WWII Veterans Memorial. Currently I am a writer, script writer and working for a non profit organization called Empowerment Through Connection which is involved in equine assisted therapy for veterans, at risk teens and women.

Everyone is familiar with the classic saucer shape UFO, aren’t we? Cigar shapes have become popular relatively recently, as UFO lore goes along with triangles. Simple points of light have been a favorite report, and very recently as read here on our favorite site for compiling stories of the unexplained, a scorpion shaped craft. Today I would like to present a new one, at least to me, the cube.

Strange Quadrangle UFO Spooks Virginia Beach (Video)

A weird, quadrangle-shaped UFO, of an unusual green color, hovered over Virginia Beach on Tuesday, spooking at least one guy who was just trying to throw out his trash in peace.

Walking outside his home, he noticed dogs barking excitedly and wondered what all the commotion was about as a neighbor mentioned strange noises. Then he looked up in the sky and caught a glimpse of this unusually shaped unidentified flying object hovering over the rooftops in his quiet neighborhood.

Fortunately he was able to grab his camera phone and took about 20 seconds of the footage shown below.

This UFO is unique because of its quadrangle shape and colors. It appears to be grayish at the edges and an aquamarine green at its center. It doesn’t look very aerodynamic, but it hovers silently before dipping past a rooftop and out of sight. What is it?

It never helps credibility when a video poster adds spooky music, courtesy of YouTube, but this case is strange enough to overlook that bit of misplaced showmanship, which actually detracts from the incident.

It can’t be denied that this is one of the most unique sightings in a while.

What do you think? Is this a UFO?

Well, it isn’t a great revelation, but it gives us one more shape to consider and look for.

“Keep watching the skies!”

And thank you all for reading my first posting to Ghost Theory.

    Congrats Henry!

    Interesting subject as I never thought too much about the shapes. I do remember seeing that video but it never occurred to me that the shape of the light was the actual shape of the object.

    My guess:

    It’s probably some satellite. Then again, I’ve seen a similar light like that when I was a teenager. It grew brighter and closer before hovering above us silently. It was quite strange.

    Nice post Henry. Welcome!

    Just a point of fact– aircraft don’t need to be aerodynamic anymore. The Stealth bomber isn’t aerodynamic either. If it weren’t for its computer-controlled guidance system keeping it level, it couldn’t be flown.

  • Peter

     That’s not completely true. All airplanes need to be aerodynamic, that stealth bomber you mention is very unstable and only computers are fast enough to make all the adjustments needed to keep it in the air but it still needs to create lift by speed and reduce drag through it’s shape.
    Unless it’s a balloon like thing, we are not able to fly cubes. Not that I think that whatever it is in this video is from outer space.

  • Ophu

    But we’re not necessarily talking about airplanes or balloons here. Bumblebees aren’t aerodynamic either. Neither are hummingbirds or UFOs, apparently. We may get to the point eventually where aerodynamics has very little to do with how an aircraft flies. It’s actually starting to be more germane to cars, really (take the Prius for example).

    This is awesome!!  I recently came across a report of a UFO that flew over Baton Rouge on April 5, 1800 that was said to be the size/shape of a house, as in rectangular.  The really weird part is that this scientist from the Smithsonian Institution was replying to someone’s letter in the June 14, 1968 edition of Science Magazine concerning this, and he predicted–predicted!– that since earlier it was rectangular UFOs, and the current trend of his time in the 1960s was saucer UFOs, the next big thing would be triangle UFOs.  He was kidding because he was a total skeptic, but it kind of was, wasn’t it?  The Belgium UFO, Rendelsham, and that one over Illinois anyway.  Triangles were/are big.  Well maybe we’re coming back around to rectangle/cube/more boxy UFOs.

  • Henry

    I cannot agree with you entirely. The stealth bomber is aerodynamic, in that it generates lift through the shape of its wing, and is propelled by displacement of air pressure. What it is, is not very stable in the air, so needing the assistance of constant adjustments to its flight surfaces that are more efficiently managed by a computer. Now, it is true that B-2 is not a fighter plane, but it is also the case that the best fighters are also aerodynamically unstable to varying degrees as this gives them greater maneuverability.  Human aircraft are still bound by the laws of aerodynamics and ballistic flight.

    Glad to be here.

    Can we bring back to flying saucer?  Its easier to make a hoax film of it in flight because you can get the hubcaps off of any car…  Rubric cubes, much harder to get…
