"I was going through my I Photos to delete unwanted photos when I was a about to delete a picture. At first I thought I saw a wind chime hanging, so I sent my friend a text message asking if he had a wind chime hanging from his roof. He said no, and nothing was hanging in the area. I had snapped some picture of some orchids, and sat down on a chair to look at them. I do sometimes accidentally hit the button on the iPhone, when I captured this picture. I can’t explain what this shape is, or if it’s a bird. Here is a picture:"
The case is currently under investigation.

October 9, 2017
"I didn't actually see this object until a couple days after taking the pic. I was watering some plants in the garden at the bottom of Manua Loa located on the big island of Hawaii when I decided to randomly to take a picture of the sky with my cell phone without looking at the sky or the screen on my phone. Personally, I believe this is why I caught the object in the picture, but that's just my opinion. I take many photos of the sky, mostly of clouds that i find interesting, that being said, i don't really look at them in detail for days or sometimes weeks for that matter. i viewed this particular set of photos the following day due to the strange anomalies in the clouds, at least what i believe we're anomalies. i thought it was coincidental that i was researching time travel just days before, while contemplating the notion of using the sun as a wormhole to travel to different dimensions. i noticed that the beam (flare) coming from the sun appears to be in the 19.47 vicinity and then noticed the object towards the end of it, along with a very interesting "dragon head" shaped cloud facing it. after zooming in on the object, i came to the conclusion that it wasn't something on the lens of my camera nor was it any type of bird, at least that i have ever noticed while living on the island. the clouds were stranger than usual days before and after this day the photo was taken."

OAHU, HAWAI'I -- A man recently contacted KRG claiming to possess telekinetic abilities and wanting us to investigate his claim.
He submitted this short video as some sort of proof, although we can't help but question the authenticity of the video and his supernatural claims.
The video appears to show a battery rolling on a table, and no further context was given.
Is this a poor attempt at trying to fool the paranormal community? Is the battery rolling back due to gravity, or due to otherworldly or unseen forces?

Kahuna Research Group Analysis:
While the object in question is not a Menehune, it appears to be the phenomena known as a "flying rod", which has been reported by numerous other witnesses across the world. The original photo could be the clearest photo ever captured in Hawaii of such object and is the first reported case to KRG. The case is currently under investigation. Further findings, if any, will be reported here. (Update 9/10/2015 - KRG replaced the original photo with an artist's rendition)
The Wikipedia page for flying rods includes a few cases where further analysis into the phenomena showed they were possibly just moths.
"Rods" (sometimes known as "skyfish", "air rods", or "solar entities") is a term used in cryptozoology, ufology, and outdoor photography to refer to elongated artifacts in the form of light-rods produced by cameras. Videos of rod-shaped objects moving quickly through the air were claimed by some ufologists and cryptozoologists to be alien life forms, "extradimensional" creatures, or very small UFOs. Subsequent experiments showed that these rods appear in film because of an optical illusion/collusion (especially in interlaced video recording), and are typically traces of a flying insect's wingbeats.
On August 8/9, 2005, China Central Television (CCTV) aired a two-part documentary about flying rods in China. It reported the events from May to June of the same year at Tonghua Zhenguo Pharmaceutical Company in Tonghua City, Jilin Province, which debunked the flying rods. Surveillance cameras in the facility's compound captured video footage of flying rods identical to those shown in Jose Escamilla's video. Getting no satisfactory answer to the phenomenon, curious scientists at the facility decided that they would try to solve the mystery by attempting to catch these airborne creatures. Huge nets were set up and the same surveillance cameras then captured images of rods flying into the trap. When the nets were inspected, the "rods" were no more than regular moths and other ordinary flying insects. Subsequent investigations proved that the appearance of flying rods on video was an optical illusion created by the slower recording speed of the camera.

Ghosts and Spirits...
Even though haunting-type events can be a bit scary, bear in mind that approximately 90% of all hauntings can be explained by natural occurrences.
Even if your case is one of the few that involves genuine phenomena, don’t panic. Contrary to what you may have seen on TV, ghosts and spirits cannot harm you. View ghosts in the same manner you would view any other human being.
When a ghost or spirit shows up, there is usually a reason. Therefore, it helps to acknowledge the spirit by speaking out to him or her just as you would when a benevolent stranger shows up at your door. Firmly and directly let the spirit know that he or she is trespassing on your property without permission (this is a boundary violation). Do not become emotional nor show fear. Tell the spirit that you are not in a position to help and that you respectfully demand that he or she leaves your home immediately. You may need to repeat your demand if the activity does not subside. Again, vocalize your demands firmly, directly, and without fear or anger.
If the paranormal activity persists, you may need the help of qualified and professional paranormal investigators who can verify and resolve the activity. Click Here to locate a Certified Paranormal Investigator in your state in the Paranexus Directory. If they do not have a member in your area, you should be able to find a local group with an online search. If all else fails, contact us and we'll help find one for you.
It is also crucial that you use the Experiencer's Form attached to this post to document and record the details of your experience and submit them for scientific review. Try not to compare notes with any other witnesses if possible. Be diligent in recording any and all details of the event including what you were doing when the activity erupted and who witnessed it. In any case, do not be afraid.
As with other paranormal phenomena, the vast majority of UFO sightings can be explained by natural occurrences. Try to rule out stars, aircraft, freak cloud formations, promotional and advertising blimps, balloons, and other types of natural phenomena. For this reason, we have a web page for monitoring live air traffic. If it wasn't an aircraft, you can report it or check to see if anyone else reported in on the live UFO map.
If you have seen something truly strange, use the form attached to this post to document and record the details of your sighting. Be sure to record the direction the craft was going, the event duration, the time of day/night, the approximate angle in the sky, and the shape of the craft.
To estimate size, use common and known units of measurement, such as a football field (100 yards x 160 feet, or 91.4 meters x 48.8 meters). To estimate distance, use known landmark distances for comparison (if available). Understand that estimating distances and altitudes is very difficult (if not impossible) for anyone.
Try to sketch the shape of the craft as best you can while the sighting is still fresh in your mind. To the extent possible, do not discuss your sighting with any other witnesses before investigators have an opportunity to interview everyone. If you do not personally know other witnesses, try to get their contact info in the event investigators want to get their perspective.
