This Week's Weird News 10/7/22

A star-shaped UFO spotted twice in Mexico, a mysterious creature photographed at a loch in Scotland, and a strange statue celebrating the notorious orange Cheetos dust were among the weird and wondrous stories to pop up on our radar this week.

This past week saw two curious UFO cases cross our desk, beginning with a very weird star-shaped object that was filmed by two separate witnesses in Mexico. The odd spiky anomaly was first seen over the home of a woman in the state of Tlaxcala and it was then spotted again by a motorist on what appeared to be the following day. As of yet, the peculiar object has not been identified, though some observers suspect it could be a drone or errant balloon. Later in the week, a man driving down the freeway in California caught sight of two glowing orbs in the night sky. To his astonishment, they were soon joined by another pair of mysterious lights.

While Nessie may be the world's preeminent lake monster, a mysterious creature spotted lurking in the waters of another Scottish loch gave the famed cryptid a run for its money this week. The anomalous animal was photographed by birdwatcher Jamie Houghton, who was visiting the country's Long Loch and noticed a disturbance off in the distance. Unable to identify the creature, which he described as long and slender, the witness was able to snap two pictures of the oddity when it surfaced a second time. Some suspect that the animal could be a sizeable turtle or perhaps a very big fish. Though, of course, some have also jokingly suggested that it was just Nessie having something of a holiday away from Loch Ness.

Our weirdest story of the week came by way of Canada, where a hamlet was gifted a rather unusual attraction in the form of a statue commemorating the snack food Cheetos. The community of Cheadle 'earned' the unique 17-foot-tall piece, which depicts a hand holding one of the cheesy treats, because their name is strikingly similar to the term 'cheetle,' which is actually the official term given to the ubiquitous orange dust that famously coats the popular snack food. To that end, the fingertips of the statue are painted orange in recognition of the substance that is all too familiar to anyone who has finished a bag of Cheetos and found themselves in a similar predicament.
