On 12/12/12 there was an alignment of UAVs (Unidentified Aerial Vehicles, more commonly known as UFOs) over Maui, Hawaii that can only be compared to the famous “Phoenix Lights” event that took place over Arizona and Nevada in the United States, and Sonora, Mexico on March 13, 1997.
Hawaii is a known UFO hotspot, with many stories of lights in the sky, both modern and ancient. Even in traditional folklore there are what’s called Akualele - which translates to " godly fireballs" - often referred to as flying gods or spirits. They have also been viewed as omens, and what took place on 12/12/12 is no exception.
Just nine days before the legendary “end of the world” date (the world didn't end of course, just the end of an Age), there was an alignment taking place much closer than the celestial ones above. KRG was contacted by an eye-witness who happened to record a small portion of the event on his iPhone. We’ve been authorized to release the following images on our site with hopes that other witnesses may come forward.
We understand that labeling these as UAVs or UFOs is the last resort, for surely there is an explanation, right? Chinese lanterns perhaps, or maybe swamp gas? You decide.
This is certainly not the first time strange lights in the sky have been seen in Hawaii. Probably not the last time either.
After some research, we found that on Friday, March 27, 1998, at 2:40 a.m. Honolulu time, a mysterious explosion of bluish-white light, accompanied by a roaring sound, lit up the night sky west of the Hawaiian Islands.
It seems Hawaii is a hotspot for such activity.
The most recent account of strange lights was just last month, with an article making the West Hawaii Today titled “Look, up in the sky, it’s a….” (click here to read that article)
Sure, most sightings have a logical explanation, however there are some that defy logic. The image above seems to be one of these, with objects in near perfect alignment. Comets, meteors, planes, helicopters do not line up like that, let alone at night!
This, folks, is the reason we do what we do. There are things out there that can’t be explained, let's face it. If you have witnessed something of a paranormal nature, like lights in the sky, fireballs, or anything else we would like to hear your story. By sharing your story with us you allow us to see the bigger overall picture which may end up helping someone down the road. If we can help just one person, then we’ve done our job.
The following video is a cell phone recording (iPhone4?) filmed on Maui by a stunned eye witness. It has not been altered or edit in any way.
If you know anything about this event, or you have additional footage to contribute to this ongoing investigation, please contact us.
