Mysterious Object Falls from Sky, Drains 100-Year-Old Pond
A woman living in a rural Tennessee town claims she saw something fall from the sky into a pond in her backyard, finding the pond was suddenly drained of its water. That resident, Patsy Wright, dismissed the idea that the drainage might be due to a sinkhole, as she says she saw something coming from the sky into the water, creating large waves, before the pond disappeared entirely.
Wright reported the story to her local Nashville NBC affiliate, which ran a report that included drone footage of the depleted pond she says had been there for over a century.
“When I seen them waves go up like it did (sic) and then they come back down. And I heard the splash. I mean it was a big splash,” Wright said. “I walked down here with my dog and sure as the world, no water. It was gone.”
According to reports, it was difficult to tell what the object was, due to the depth of the hole. It’s also unclear what happened to the water, though it’s assumed it was absorbed into the water table below, after the pond was struck.
“I know something hit it, because I heard it. I thought, I’m not imagining nothing. It’s there.”
Some online were quick to connect the drainage of Wright’s pond with a similar account from the CIA-employed remote viewer Ingo Swann, who in his autobiography recounts being taken to see a triangular UFO, which subsequently drained a lake of its water.
His account describes being flown to an undisclosed location in the north (possibly Alaska or northern Canada) where he says, “That was my last sight of the triangular thing, but in that last moment I could see the water of the lake surging upward – like a waterfall going upward, as if being sucked in to the “machine!”
This might seem farfetched, however there have been other bizarre accounts of lakes, ponds, and other small bodies of water experiencing sudden drainage unable to be explained by geologists or other professionals. An instance like this occurred on a farm in Utah in 2014, where a bizarre crater appeared in a reservoir.
When interviewed about the strange cavity the farmer described it by saying, “My heck, I guess that’s Martian art!”
Experts from the Utah Geological Survey were unable to explain the phenomenon.
Often unexpected holes like these are attributed to sinkholes – a sudden collapse of the ground caused by the erosion of underlying rock layers typically consisting of limestone. It’s unclear whether a sinkhole could have been the culprit in the latest incident, but if Wright actually witnessed and heard something fall from the sky, a sinkhole could be easily ruled out.

HAARP; A U.S. Conspiracy Theory Magnet
In 1993, The US Air Force began construction on a $290 million project that would enable the government’s foremost atmospheric researchers to study the ionosphere — the top layer of the Earth’s atmosphere. The research center, now run by the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, is called the High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, or HAARP, and is located in the frozen wilderness of Gakona, Alaska. For a number of reasons, HAARP’s activities have drawn the attention of citizens who are suspicious of the organization’s practices.
Over the years, HAARP has been officially credited with conducting useful and successful research, but because of its highly complex work, officials claim its purpose has been largely misunderstood by detractors. For this reason, it has been ground zero for criticism since its inception.
Situated in the remote wilderness of an already low-population state — purportedly to promote secrecy — HAARP features 360 radio transmitters, 180 antennas, and 5 powerful generators that create geometric patterns in every direction when turned on. The antennas, each a foot thick and stretching 72 feet into the sky, continue to raise eyebrows.

Shortly after the facility opened, the public began reporting strange phenomena — not only in the region, but around the world. Activists challenged HAARP’s activities, vocally questioning what the organization was really up to. While the government continues to deny any connection with changes in weather, frequencies of earthquakes, and chemtrails in the skies, it has made deliberate efforts to quell suspicions about the nature of its operations. Yet these are not nearly enough to quiet HAARP’s notable detractors, including former Venezuelan President, Hugo Chavez and former Minnesota Governor, Jesse Ventura.
Ventura questioned whether the government was using HAARP to manipulate the weather or overwhelm citizens with mind-controlling radio waves. While the Air Force acknowledged that Ventura had made an official request to visit the research station, he and his crew nevertheless were denied access.
