Did A UFO Really Stop Wind Turbines From Turning?
There are many things the folk at Wind TV never expected to cover when we began chronicling the fabulous story of the growth of wind power around the world. After all, wind is beautiful, clean, forceful, inexpensive, straightforward, and always bright and breezy.
However, in our quest to tell of the wonders of the new energy that is wind we have found ourselves, momentarily, edging off the more normal path and have passed into a twilight zone that we can’t ignore. In a nod to the classic dark sci-fi detectives Mulder and Scully, we at Wind TV have today opened our own X-Files as we look at the suggestion that UFO’s may be as awestruck with wind turbines as the rest of us on planet Earth.
Footage taken in April last year from the Polish UFO ‘Watch Group’ (Grupa obserwacyjna), with its accompanying eerie mood-making music, has come to our attention and supposedly shows a UFO flying close to a wind farm near to Lublin in Poland. The footage clearly shows an orb like craft flying close to the wind turbines and as it nears two of them the most bizarre thing happens – they instantly stop – only to resume turning once the orb moves away.
Other wind turbines in the distance keep turning.
According to the group, the UFO, which had come from the east, was in the area for over one hour before disappearing.
There are many things regarding wind that are mysteries to us all – but aliens stopping wind turbines from operating is a new one.
Incredibly this is not the first claim of UFO encounters with wind turbines. In January 2009 people in Conisholme in the English county of Lincolnshire, were woken in the early hours by a loud noise and bright lights. By the light of day they soon noticed that one of the local wind turbines at an Ecotricity Wind Farm nearby had a 165ft (50m) blade missing, and a second blade was completely bent. This soon fuelled speculation that the blades had been struck by a UFO.
Indeed, at least one UK news network made a report at the time:
Initial enquiries left Ecotricity at a loss as to the cause but a subsequent report from Enercon suggested the damage was from failure due to ‘material fatigue’, promptly reported by the Daily Mail at the time as due to ‘a rusty bolt’.
As the X-Files say: ‘The Truth Is Out There’. And wouldn’t it be brilliant if we later discover that aliens from other worlds were actually here on Earth to admire and, perhaps, copy our rather wonderful way of taking energy from the air and putting it to good use.
