UFOs-croppedSixty years ago a soccer match ground to a halt when unidentified flying objects were spotted above a stadium in Florence. “They were moving very fast and then they just stopped. It all lasted a couple of minutes.” Ten-thousand fans were watching the game in the concrete bowl of the Stadio Artemi Franchi. But just after half-time the stadium fell eerily silent – then a roar went up from the crowd. The spectators were no longer watching the match, but were looking up at the sky, fingers pointing. The players stopped playing, the ball rolled to a stand-still.

YouTube user 235FireFly was admiring Newfoundland scenery when he suddenly noticed something out of place over an iceberg out at sea.

I noticed what appeared to be a chunk of ice just barely attached to an iceberg, hoping to catch it collapse I took out the camera and zoomed in. What you can see is a white object not attached to the iceberg, but rather spinning around and changing shape? There was no fog and it was a perfectly clear day so I’m up for debate.
