WEATHER PHENOMENON MISTAKEN FOR UFO
A NOAA satellite passing thousands of miles over Michigan recorded an alien-looking weather phenomenon that is often mistaken for UFOs and their portals.
Meteorologists call the phenomenon fallstreak or hole punch clouds, and they often are created by aircraft, according to a Nov. 23 NOAA Satellite and Information Service report.
However, the mysterious holes in the sky can be so perfectly shaped that alarmed people on the ground often report them as UFOs, according to Earthsky.org.
Satellite video shared below by NOAA on Facebook shows the phenomenon happened over Michigan on Nov. 20, starting with small nicks in cloud cover then expanded to giant traveling holes in the sky.

NASA Challenge Seeks Innovations to Excavate Moon Resources
From garage inventors to university students and entrepreneurs, NASA is looking for ideas on how to excavate the Moon’s icy regolith, or dirt, and deliver it to a hypothetical processing plant at the lunar South Pole. The NASA Break the Ice Lunar Challenge, now open for registration, is designed to develop new technologies that could support a sustained human presence on the Moon by the end of the decade.
“We are excited about this opportunity to broaden our community engagement in the Artemis program and explore new infrastructure approaches for the Moon,” said NASA’s Associate Administrator for the Space Technology Mission Directorate Jim Reuter. "As outlined in our plan for sustained lunar exploration and development, NASA is pursuing technology development that allows future explorers to live off the land. With this challenge, we’re soliciting fresh ideas from outside the traditional aerospace sector for acquiring and processing resources needed to support long-duration human surface exploration.”
The "Break the Ice Lunar Challenge" Prize:
Phase 1 seeks new ideas and approaches for a system architecture capable of excavating and moving icy regolith and water on the lunar surface. Eligible Phase 1 participants must submit a system architecture report, excavation plan, and mission animation by June 18, 2021 that addresses various operations and environmental conditions of a hypothetical excavation mission on the lunar surface. The entries will compete for a portion of the $500,000 Phase 1 prize purse.
The initiation of Phase 2, the demonstration phase, is contingent on the emergence of promising submissions in Phase 1 that demonstrate viable approaches to achieving the challenge goals. Phase 2 would carry a prize purse of up to $4.5 million.

NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY PROVIDES LISTING OF UFO DOCUMENTS
In response to numerous inquiries regarding the subject of Unidentified Flying Objects, the NSA has assembled a list of documents located in its files. Many of these documents were provided as a result of a 1980 litigation action brought about by Citizens Against Unidentified Flying Objects Secrecy against the Agency. The list may be found here.
