Mayan doomsday prophecies aside, 2013 may be the year mankind finally establishes contact with intelligent life from outside Earth, with a number of Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) sightings from across the world, inside the first two weeks of the year.

Mexico

UFOs were spotted a few hundred miles above the planet's surface by NASA cameras last week and those were followed by another sighting in skies over Mexico. According to Scott Waring, who edits UFO Sightings Daily, the sighting was made on 11 January.

"The eyewitness says that he was too far from the object to make out a definite shape but from most of the video it looks like a flat square shape but with the mist or fog its really hard to make out its exact shape. I altered one still of it, (upper left corner) so it can be seen more easily," Waring said on his Web site.

International Space Station

On Wednesday, there were reports of objects captured near Nasa's International Space Station (ISS), the videos of which were later uploaded on YouTube.

The sightings occurred over two days - 14 January and 15 January - and involved lights in a triangular shape and a cigar-shaped object.

The Sun

A more recent sighting was reported near the surface of the Sun. This sighting (check out the video below) was made on 15 January. However, a report by the Huffington Post, in April last year, also mentioned UFOs near the Sun. The report says: "... a camera on NASA's Solar and Heliospheric Observatory seems to have captured the image of something very large and artificially constructed hovering perilously close to our solar neighbor".

Nathan Rich, a scientist with the Naval Research Laboratory, sought to explain the unidentified object as "a collection of streaks left by cosmic rays that hit the camera's CCD sensor".
