austriantimes.at - Yeti experts are heading to Poland after a local man filmed a "monstrous, hairy creature" while on holiday in the Tatra mountains.
There have been rumours of a Polish Yeti in the area for centuries but this is the first time one of the strange creatures has been captured on film.

China UFO mega event: update and more photos
UFO researchers are still baffled over a large scale UFO event whereby thousands of witnesses saw two cloud-like UFOs with white lights circling them over an enormous area (at least 300KM radius) in Shandong Province.
More photos, such as the one above, of the event are beginning to surface along with film footage. Neither scientists or authorities have come forward to with any answers as to what the objects seen were however it has been noted that this sighting stands out in regards to the wide area over which the UFO was seen.
Much like the previous Eclipse UFO sighting in China some researchers have noted that this sighting also bears some similarity to the famous and credible Japan Airlines 1986 sighting where very large craft were circled my smaller rotating objects.
The sighting has been covered by Xinhua and China Daily, China's government news outlets.
More footage of the event can be seen here.

How does the world handle the unknown? That is easy to answer. The world handles it with laughter, scary fun, make believe and of course by handing it all to Hollywood so they can make movies of all that unknown stuff that frightens us so it can simply be tossed off as fantasy.
We seem to have a severe fear of dealing with subjects we do not understand with such a fierce refusal to accept or understand that which we can not explain that we insist on keeping it a joke, a entertainment, something that makes us yell with fun filled silliness. We want movies and scary books and even want to walk around imitating Vampires, as that is what Hollywood, HBO as well as many other media companies have trained us to do.
I am not sure who drives this system of dealing with the unknown however agree it must have roots in government, world control or maybe even the aliens. Like all things we do not understand our method of handling the subject of UFO sightings, alien encounters plus many other unknown areas seems always to end up in fantasy-land and the hands of movie-makers. I enjoy a great flick like everyone else but hey- could we maybe once have the issue of visiting beings seen all over the world in odd crafts looked at seriously by our scientists and government agencies without the commercials and popcorn?
Concerning the world of the paranormal humans seem to be trained like dogs and cats to jump around and laugh at the mention of things they do not understand. The only thing missing is the cookie treat when we react, as our training requires! It seems with ease mankind can be dragged around by the nose and told what to think and what not to think and what we should find funny. What ever fantasy cable TV or Hollywood shows us we confuse it with fact, or think of fact as fantasy or simply do not care. We have given up reason for instant entertainment.
We sit for hours in front of the boob tube willing to absorb whatever is tossed at us without thought or care. What ever that boob tube spits out we believe and follow. We do as we are trained and commanded to do and view the world right or wrong as the controlling forces wish us to and never seem to ask a question or look for more.
Understanding how this works one has to wonder who really is deciding what we see and learn and what we are not being told. I would think that the reality of truth about most things on this planet and in our universe are at best only partly told to the humans that populate this earth. I think that most of what is real and fact is hidden and kept at arms length from the masses for reasons we may never understand. I just cannot help wonder why we as a species have been so easily controlled and are so willingly kept in the dark.
For a while it seemed the world of UFO sightings and Alien interactions with mankind was going to make some headway. It seemed as if lots of new and interesting things were being written about and observed. Many credible people were starting to come forward with solid sightings and encounters. It seemed to be heading to a place where this subject matter could be discussed with logic and considered with a science eye. Finally it seemed we were heading towards an awareness that the paranormal was just science we did not yet understand.
I began to sense a change. I was not sure why. It may have been the economy and strain of the world’s condition. I could not pin point the exact reasons but I started to notice a decline in the forward movement of the world of the paranormal.
I noticed that the gusto of reaching for answers to the questions of the unknown seemed to diminish. Maybe it is the recessionary times we are dealing with that has reversed our interests in subjects of the unknown to those more pressing in the world.
I noticed less activity on the Internet in paranormal areas that previously were popular and busy. I noticed sites closing and those who were involved in the paranormal missing from the paranormal scene. I watched and realized that like all things in the universe this subject seemed to be entering another cycle and this time is was moving backwards instead of ahead.
I worked for years to bring forward reports of UFO’s, visiting aliens, abductions, as well as other unknown areas that remain unexplained, into the light. I tried hard to make this an area we could begin to understand and realize as real and happening to many on this earth. It was time we removed our minds from the control of those who would like to continue on keeping us all ignorant about the unknown. It is clear we need to move away from being trained NOT to think about these subjects. It is time we stop believing, laugh or follow what we are told concerning them. For awhile it seemed we were moving closer to wanting to know more about who we are, who visits us and what our role in the universe may be.
Talking to many who have had real sightings and real encounters with beings that were not human has been a remarkable experience. Writing about it has been my attempt to drag the human race out of the their brain dead Dark Age thinking concerning these matters and into the realization they need to educate them selves to what is going on around them.
As I dug deeper into the world of the unknown I knew it was only time before many people out there would also encounter things they did not understand and were completely ill equipped to deal with. The only tools any of us have are the knowledge we obtain and our ability to use that knowledge. Mankind has had the knowledge needed for them to handle the world of the paranormal taken from them and controlled by way of mass ignorance or media brain washing. We as a species have willingly walked our selves off the cliff by refusing to demand education on matters of the unknown by sitting in fogged stupors laughing and drooling over the next big scary movie to come by.
We were on the edge of understanding the world of UFO sightings, alien encounters with visiting beings plus many other experiences we do not understand. We were beginning to move ahead and then- it turned around.
I noticed the Internet chat rooms that once were full of paranormal rooms with bright conversation end abruptly about 6 months ago. Many rooms simply no longer exist. The bright people who once held interesting conversations disappeared. Some say it was due to the difficulty of dealing with so many disrupting vulgar chatters. People now have less time as they deal with the obligations of our times. Others told me that the fakes and frauds of lonely silly people making up fake stories started to sour things for those with real encounters. I think it was a combination of it all.
Things seemed to be slowing down and people seemed to be doing other things, all which is understandable during these strained economic times. I would have thought little of it and would have figured we would once again find our footing with the unknown once times stabilize across the world. I would have let it go at that until one big wrench after the other got thrown into the game. Again – the media started to force feed us entertaining movies that take the subjects of the unknown and place them firmly into a place where we can all keep them pushed aside and locked into the world of make believe fantasy. A convenient way to defuse any real need to know about these subjects and package them into comic book level sci- fi fantasy. It is a good way to remove it from the publics mind as anything serious or real. Simply throw a bunch of scary movies at them and it all neatly gets classed as a tickle and a giggle.
It was just too convenient in my minds eye. It was just too coincidental. All of a sudden we are once again flooded with new movies, TV shows and entertainment making all that we struggled so hard to bring into a modern light of understanding smack back into the world of fantasy fun viewing pleasure. What a perfect way to take the seriousness out of the unknown. Simply show them a movie and the world immediately turns that subject into a fun good show and continue on their way of continued brain freeze and ignorance about the very things they need to be educated about.
How convenient that just when we were making our way to understanding what the crafts may be that are seen all over the world by people each and every day, how convenient that when these sightings seem to be everywhere so are the trailers for the new Alien movie’ District Nine,’ among many others.
I noticed that vampires are everywhere with at least four movies and shows on the subject showing this summer. I looked at the new movies releasing to find Planet 51, Alien Attic, 2012, 9- a cartoon end of the world flick (how better to take the real fear out of a subject- simply cartoon it) not to mention a list of others coming this fall that take the serious subject of who and what and why we are being visited on earth and turning it all into great science fiction fantasy films.
How cleaver and easy it is to control the masses concerning these subjects. All that is needed is to feed our gluttonous need for constant mind numbing entertainment by turning the serious into fantasy. It relieves the need to explain these subjects as true events and continues the road of brain washing by continuing our path of Dark Age thinking. All that needs to be done is to take subjects that frighten humans and make them fun filled flicks!
I wish this were not true however if this was not the case we would stop the dumbing down of our logic by not accepting what is thrown at us about subjects that are without question. We know that sightings and strange encounters with non human beings are going on all around us and increasing in number. The question is why we are so blasé about it
I wonder why those in control do not simply have Hollywood or HBO make a great comedy about the economy or health care? They use it to control the subjects of the unknown, why not all serious matters? Make us yell in entertaining glee or laugh and it all goes away!
I guess it is far easier to slide back to the old comfort of not having to think about these things keeping them fun and fantasy. I must say I find this reaction at this point in time some of the strangest actions of mankind. It seems to be our way to take ten steps ahead and then five back.
As a society we are at the point where we do understand that the universe is a huge mystery that the best and brightest are yet to comprehend. Ask any scientist exactly what a black hole is, what is at its end, or why every galaxy seems to have them in their centers and they will tell you they do not know. They know they exist but are not really sure past that point. They understand a great deal and understand they also have a great deal yet to learn. The answers to so many things are in our future, which seems far away at times we back track instead of forging ahead.
The same thinking surrounds the subjects of UFO’s and the beings that visit us who are not human. It is hard to continue on this ridiculous road of denial concerning these issues yet we constantly slide back to a start point where comfort and fear seems to over ride logic and progress.
As long as we step over these subjects, allow them to be constantly used as a base for fantasy and fiction without any regard to truth or reality we will stay forever locked in the unknown.
As long as silly lonely people with too much time on their hands continue to use this subject matter as a road for attention- we will stay locked in the unknown. Until we stop trying to use this as silly entertainment only- we will stay locked in fantasy movie land and ignorant of that which we do not know. The paranormal is science we are yet to understand. It is not anything more or less. The only thing holding us back from the rest of the universe is our mind numbing attitudes concerning these unknown facts that we seem simply terrified to face or understand.
Of course there are reasons we are pushed into brain washed thinking of the paranormal as movie bait and horror show batter. I am sure it is far easier to keep mankind in the dark concerning these subjects. I am also aware of the fact that it may be our visitors who request that we stay unaware and in the dark concerning their actions and presence. Lets face it, it is far easier to abduct, use, abuse and then dump a human if no one believes it truly happens. It is getting to the point that so many people in this world have seen our visitors or had to deal first hand with them that the charade of deceit will only be able to hold for so long.
The bottom line here is as long as we let subjects that may one day be life or death events continue as entertainment fantasy, the harder life will be for mankind ahead.
Aliens exist. UFO’s are seen all over the world. 2011- 2015 may be a rough time on this planet. Isn’t it pathetic we refuse to face or educate our selves, refuse to want to have the knowledge we may need concerning these subjects and instead want to sit with the convenient coincidence of all these subjects watered down into a great new movie we can quickly forget? I find this sad and frightening for us all.
Are we really so easily lied to and controlled? Remember when you yawn your way past those who try to explain to you that the subjects of the unknown are real and coming – consider with care- if you really want to continue treating it all like this weeks new comic strip. It may be a decision that will truly have you laugh to death one day!
I will continue to try to reach the world with logic that the unknown is here and you may indeed be the next to come face to face with the unknown eyes of a non human creature on a lonely dark road. Gee if you make it through your encounter alive maybe they can make a great fun filled movie about your terrifying ordeal!
Be careful out there even after seeing the next great mega hit sci fi flick- who knows what really will be waiting for you in the dark night of that huge parking field!

The Sedlec Ossuary (Czech: kostnice Sedlec) is a small Roman Catholic chapel, located beneath the Cemetery Church of All Saints (Czech: HÅ™bitovnÃ kostel VÅ¡ech SvatÃ½ch) in Sedlec, a suburb of KutnÃ¡ Hora in the Czech Republic. The ossuary contains approximately 40,000-70,000 human skeletons which have been artistically arranged to form decorations and furnishings for the chapel.
Henry, the abbot of the Cistercian monastery in Sedlec, was sent to the Holy Land by King Otakar II of Bohemia in 1278. When he returned, he brought with him a small amount of earth he had removed from Golgotha and sprinkled it over the abbey cemetery. The word of this pious act soon spread and the cemetery in Sedlec became a desirable burial site throughout Central Europe. During the Black Death in the mid 14th century, and after the Hussite Wars in the early 15th century, many thousands of people were buried there and the cemetery had to be greatly enlarged.
Around 1400 a Gothic church was built in the center of the cemetery with a vaulted upper level and a lower chapel to be used as an ossuary for the mass graves unearthed during construction, or simply slated for demolition to make room for new burials. After 1511 the task of exhuming skeletons and stacking their bones in the chapel was, according to legend, given to a half-blind monk of the order.
Between 1703 and 1710 a new entrance was constructed to support the front wall, which was leaning outward, and the upper chapel was rebuilt. This work, in the Czech Baroque style, was designed by Jan Santini Aichel.
In 1870, FrantiÅ¡ek Rint, a woodcarver, was employed by the Schwarzenberg family to put the bone heaps into order. The macabre result of his effort speaks for itself. Four enormous bell-shaped mounds occupy the corners of the chapel. An enormous chandelier of bones, which contains at least one of every bone in the human body, hangs from the center of the nave with garlands of skulls draping the vaults. Other works include piers and monstrances flanking the altar, a large Schwarzenberg coat-of-arms, and the signature of Rint, also executed in bone, on the wall near the entrance.

UFO Hovers over Chongqing for Half an Hour
Source:People's Daily Onl
Updated: 2009-8-27 14:05:37
At about 10 pm on the evening of August 23, a UFO appeared in the sky above Beibei Binjiang Road in Chongqing. The UFO was “V” shaped and its color changed in the order of red, blue, green, yellow and white at short intervals. Hundreds of people watched but no one heard any sound produced by engines or propulsion equipment.
During the half hour that the UFO appeared, a civil airplane passed by. Witnesses compared the civil airplane to the UFO and discovered that the UFO was obviously flying at a higher attitude.
After hovering for about half an hour, the periphery of the UFO began to twinkle and then it disappeared in the night sky.

Greetings once again readers,
The following account is a description of what has been described as a Hot Pursuit of two UFOs by interceptor fighter jets in what sounds like a cat and mouse game.
Shortly after the Interceptors chased the UFOs into upper skies the UFOs simple returned after having eluded the jets chasing them.
Here is the report submitted to UFO Casebook on August 28th 2009.
August 28th 2009: North Carolina
My family and I were sitting on the beach at Salter Path, North Carolina. I noticed what I thought was a very bright star, but it was moving and appeared to be blinking.
It was followed for about 15 seconds by a smaller looking red dot, which disappeared. The first star-like object was making very erratic movements, which appeared to be twirling.
It came close enough to shore that I could make out the outline of a disc-shaped object which was clearly spinning, with red and white lights around the edges of the middle section of the disc.
The UFO then flew further away, but we could still see the light from it which seemed to blink from the rotation of the craft.
A second one joined it, and began to follow it very erratically. The second one then began to ascend to the upper part of the sky very rapidly. After a few minutes, two military planes tore across the sky in pursuit of the craft, which took off. At this point both craft disappeared.
By now, we had all been following the craft for 45 minutes. When the two planes (clearly planes, as the flight pattern was very straight and had no inexplicable, rapid fluctuations unlike the other two lights) came in pursuit, the two discs took off. A very low flying plane closely followed the two jets.
About 20 minutes later, we witnessed something hovering stationary over the water for roughly 30 seconds, then slowly move forward towards the beach.
Once it reached the shore, it flew sideways, and then began to move forward again.
It had two red lights, one on the left and right sides of the front of the craft, and a white light in the middle of the two red ones. There was also a white or orange light possibly on the underside of the craft flashing downwards.
My family and I have been going to this same part of Salter Path for 19 years. Never before have we seen anything like this. All of us are used to seeing planes and helicopters flying at night, as there is a military base in the vicinity (Johnson Air Force Base).
The motions of the lights were such that it would be impossible for a plane or a helicopter. Furthermore, we identified a disc-shaped object to be the source of the lights.

2nd INCREDIBLE VIDEO UFO RELEASES MOVING SPHERES
August 22, 2009
MUFON Witness Report: My friends and I (6 of us total) were visiting the neighborhood pond when one of us called to point out a lighted object far off in the dark sky.
We watched the object circle around, and one of my friends and I had jokingly called out, "Ha ha look it's a UFO!" Two of the guys with us decided it looked like a blimp judging by the lights positioning. I snapped a pic of the aircraft on my cell phone while it was still visible.
The object had flown just out of sight behind some trees. We all were stunned at the thought of what that could have been. Finally everyone agreed that it had to have been a blimp. Approx. 2 minutes late,r the lights from before were much brighter now and behind us. We all turned around to see the object up close and right in front of us but just above the tree line.
The aircraft, about the size of a small house, hovered while continuing to move right above our heads. At this point we could see the distinct outline of a very thin triangular shaped black object.
Numerous lights lit up the underneath and a slight hum could be heard, but nothing like an airplane or a jet engine. My friends and I just watched it pass and as we were all in shock, nobody could get out their phone for a closer picture.
Just after passing us and the small pond, the triangular aircraft increased speed and took off. The object disappeared within the blink of an eye. I was in complete shock as I had never seen anything like this before in my life.

I can remember when I was a child listening to stories about sightings of Big Foot being seen all over the world. I read reports almost daily about people seeing large unknown biped creatures. Many fit in with the hairy human type creature we all now think of as Sasquatch, or Big Foot. I think with the long-standing history of reports concerning this creature that there is without question some truth to all of these sightings.
I have read many articles about huge cats seen where huge cats do not belong. Many have told me that they have seen animals that do not fit in or are natural to the surroundings they are seen. I wonder at times how this is happening or if these creatures are being transported by some source or time slip to be sighted in places they do not belong?
My interest has been drawn to those who have had encounters with creatures that do not fit in with any living creation we know on this earth. I find some reports to be what I consider another level of visitation that we just now are starting to understand. Could we have doorways from other dimensions or times on this planet that allows for visitors from places other then this universe. Could we also have visiting beings from other layers of time or dimension dropping by and then simply vanishing back to where they have come?
I hear reports from Mexico about flying human shaped beings. I have read many reports from those who tell us that aliens have crossed their path. Look at the recent article about a man and his son in Northport Florida who have reported aliens visiting their home at night. I read the mans experience and watched his video report and wonder if what he witnessed fit in more with unknown creatures rather then aliens from space?
He reported a reptile hoofed flying creature with glowing eyes that made me think of moth man reptile being reports I have heard over the years.
I recently had a friend tell me that he was part of an odd encounter that occurred when he was a child. He told me about an upright two-legged animal with clawed type hoof feet that tried to bang through a door at a cabin in the wilderness of the Midwest where he was staying with family members one winter. He told me that the people inside the cabin kept the door barricaded until the morning light. The thing on the other side of the door spent hours trying to pound its way through the door. When they opened the door the next morning to investigate they found a badly clawed door and strange foot prints in the snow that were made by a two-legged animal. The tracks walked around the cabin, on the roof of the cabin and then off into the woods. The stride was long and deep indicating a heavy tall creature. The men in the cabin were hunters and not one of them ever saw tracks or footprints like those left by their night visitor. The family never knew what it was that tried to entire their cabin that night.
When I was a teenager on Long Island New York I experienced along with my entire family and a group of friends a unknown creature that spent one night tormenting us. This creature had gotten into our home while my family was not home and waited for us to return. When it was discovered something was in the house with us we quickly ran outside. The creature stayed in the house taunting us with turning the lights on and off, pounding on the walls and howling in heart stopping screams of anger. It wanted to trap us in the house and went wild when we would not cooperate.
The police were called to search the area. They found a rope he was hoping to use, clawed walls and a putrid smell left behind. A few weeks later this horrible creature returned to my neighborhood again to try and grab a family. He ripped a large window out of a nearby house wood casing and all trying to grab a 17-year-old girl watching TV in her family room. Her mother chased the creature off with a shotgun. The ordeal was terrifying for all involved. The creature was never found. What this thing was or where it came from remains a mystery to this day.
I had dinner recently with old friends whom I had gone to college with years ago. Both the husband and wife had careers working in agencies that involved security for the United States. Both were well trained to deal with dangerous situations. The woman was retired but the husband was still working. As part of his job this man carried a weapon.
They told me about a experience that they had a few years ago while on vacation. They were spending a week on the end of Long Island near Montauk Point. One afternoon they decided to drive around the less populated wooded areas that cover the end of Long Island. They had packed a lunch and were driving along a deserted road looking for a place to set up lunch in the back of their truck. They found a lovely area along the side of the country road. The wife jumped into the bed of the truck to set up their little chairs and table so they could begin their lunch. The husband decided to look along the side of the wooded road to see if he could locate a secondary dirt road he was told about that was suppose to be the entrance to a civil war building he was hoping to see. The wife was in the back of the truck busy with her cooler while the husband walked close to the side of the road along the woods.
The wife and husband both heard it at the same time. It was a strange clucking animal sound. It was loud, close by and unlike anything they had ever heard before. Both of them immediately froze in response to this odd out of place sound. The woman stood up to view where her husband was standing. He stood motionless. They both stood silently listening. They listened only a few seconds when they heard it. Foot steps adjacent to where her husband was walking. They were heavy breaking sticks and crushing leaves. Both this man and his wife were trained to know the difference between the normal sounds of the forest and its animal life and that of sounds not normal to the area. These steps were of something more human like and structured. Not the fluttering random steps of an animal. They were methodical and keeping pace with the man. She watched as her husband stood perfectly still. He slowly turned around and looked at his wife. She knew at once they were in trouble.
The woman dropped the lunch on the floor of the truck, jumped over the side and quickly got into the truck and started it. She placed her foot to the floor fish tailing down the road as quickly as she could get that truck to travel. She flew up next to her husband who now stood feet planted in a squat position with his gun drawn facing the woods. She slammed on the brakes and screamed at him to get in. The second he jumped into the truck she took off flying down the road wanting as much distance between them and whatever was in those woods.
When her husband opened the door of the truck to jump in she was able to glance towards the side of the road where he had his weapon aimed. There in the woods she saw two red glowing eyes looking towards them from the woods. They were about 7 feet in the air making what ever was looking at them at least 7 to 8 feet high.
As they were racing down the road away from the thing in the woods her husband shaking and still holding his weapon could only stutter “Did you see it? It was not human.”
The husband told his wife he knew something large and intelligent was following him along side the road in the woods. It would stop when he did and back off from sight when the man tried to get a look at it. He told his wife it was huge at least 8 feet tall with an outline that appeared wide and square in form. He told his wife it had red colored eyes that had a glow that would turn on and off in the dark woods. The man was shaken and convinced it was not of this world.
The couple returned to the hotel they were staying and packed up and left the area. They thought about reporting the event to the local police but decided to handle it differently and more effectively by way of connections they had made over their careers. They told me that they were able to have a search of that area done with trained professionals and dogs but came away without anything that could explain what they had seen that day.
I have no reason not to believe my friends. I do know them to be special people who have devoted their lives to the safety of my country and without question not the type to tell a story like this unless it happened. They do not want anything other then to get this story out to others and to tell people to be careful where they go and to make sure they are prepared for the unknown in such settings.
Having encountered a creature I could not explain in my lifetime I can only come to the conclusion that creatures do wander our planet that are unknown and not human. I think that the case in Northport Florida needs to be watched along with other stories that people tell about these creature type beings that seem to visit at their whim and then disappear into the night, or woods or for that matter your back yard!
I am not sure what these creatures are that so many people encounter. They could be aliens however they could also be beings from another dimension or time. I am not sure why we encounter these creatures I just know too many report these unknown beings for them to not be something we need to investigate along with all the other unknowns of the paranormal world. I do know once you do encounter a being that is not from your time dimension or world – you never forget it!
I wonder how many others out there have had encounters with creatures they cannot identify. One day we may have answers to all these strange events. For now I can only warn you all to always pay attention to your surroundings and please – be careful out there!

There’s something lurking just under the surface of the Lake Worth Lagoon in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The mysterious creature was caught on tape by the LagoonKeepers.
“Channel marker ten is the first time we saw the unknown creature,“ says Greg Reynolds of LagoonKeeper.org. “I hollered out and said ‘What is that?‘. We followed it, started taking video.“
What could it be?
Thanks to the LagoonKeepers, until it’s identified, it has a name:
Reynolds calls it The Elusive Muck Monster.
Thomas Reinert, a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Marine Biologist, studied the video.
“This appears to be one animal moving in this direction. Nothing’s breaking the surface. Typically dolphins break the surface, sea turtles, manatee, a large school of fish, if it were a shark at that level you would see a fin,“ he says. “I cant definitely say what it is.
Czech archaeologists have uncovered a
unique 1000-year-old mark engraved into an oak tree the remains of which were found near Celakovice in Prague, which is probably the oldest preserved sign of this kind in the world.
According to a report from the Czech News Agency, the real meaning of the 10-cm star-shaped mark on the oak trunk is not certain. Experts say it may have marked the territory or serve some iconic purposes.
This find is rare as so old engraved signs were not previously mapped and they are not systematically searched for either, archaeologist Jana Marikova of the Academy of Sciences (AV)'s Archaeological Institute, said.
Geologist Radek Mikulas, from the AV's Geological Institute, found the engraved sign by accident when he was searching for the actual age and state of the old oak trunks that were lifted near Celakovice during sand and gravel strip mining.
The mark was engraved into the trunk after the bark was removed from the spot, and this is why its traces were preserved. Experts estimate that the oaks were standing near the Labe (Elbe) River between 600-800 A.D. and the engraved symbol must originate from the early middle Ages.

Steve Killick, a Harry Potter fan, said: "It is very exciting to think that there are fans of Harry from other galaxies.
"Most of the world has fallen in love with Harry Potter so it makes sense that most of the universe will do eventually too."
JK Rowling's seven-book series on the adventures of wizard-in-training Harry have sold over 400 million copies since the first title was released in 1997.
Pattern expert Karen Alexander dismissed the claims.
She said: "The owl is an ancient symbol of wisdom, so perhaps it is a message to people that we should be thinking deeper about the world around us.
"This is obviously a time of some upheaval in the world so perhaps this is a sign that we should be looking backwards for some wisdom in how to deal with today's problems, rather than anything to do with Harry Potter."
Crop patterns have caused fresh controversy this summer, after a farmer in Wiltshire fired a shotgun over the heads of circle-spotters last month.

According to the paleontologists, the three-toed animal, which probably measured between 15 and 20 feet long, walked through what is now the Swiss Alps more than 210 million years ago.The 15-inch-long prints belonged to a carnivore from the Triassic period that would have been the biggest predator on the planet at the time.
And, the footprints were originally made when the region was a huge tropical coast tbefore millions of years of geological pressure folded the land into mountains, the team members said.
A research study that has recently been obtained through FOIA offers stunning confirmation that Wright-Patterson Air Force base contracted Battelle Memorial Institute to analyze material from a crashed UFO at Roswell in 1947. Remarkably, the co-author of this very metals study is the same scientist who decades ago had confessed that he had examined extraterrestrial metal from a crashed UFO while he was a research scientist at Battelle! This just-received document also reveals that another one of its metallurgist authors reported directly to a Battelle scientist who was conducting secret UFO studies for the USAF. It appears that the study represents first-ever attempts in creating highly novel and advanced Titanium alloys. Some of these alloys were later associated with the development of "memory metal" of the type reported as crash debris at Roswell.

HE identity of the tiny human-like creature discovered on the Indonesian island of Flores in 2004 has become clearer -- and more astonishing -- thanks to a new analysis by Australian and Indonesian scientists.
According to a team led by Australian National University doctoral student Debbie Argue, not only is Homo floresiensis, nicknamed the hobbit, not a deformed modern human, as a handful of critics claim, but the small-brained, long-armed biped was the first human-like creature to walk out of Africa.
And it did so nearly two million years ago, roughly 100,000 years before a species most scientists believed was the first migrant. That was a somewhat more modern hominin -- a member of a group including humans and their ancestors -- that was discovered in Dmanisi, Republic of Georgia, variously identified as H.georgicus, H. ergaster or H. erectus.
"We're looking at a very archaic being indeed, one that appears to have gone its own evolutionary way long before our species emerged," Ms Argue said.

Unedited MUFON witness statement: June 11, 2009 - my family and I were traveling to California for vacation. We stop at rest stop near the AZ/California border my son pointed out a bright slow moving object that seemed to change colors from "bright" white, amber, orange, to a light blueish/purple. This object also seemed to change shapes from a tear drop, to some what of a cross which is what really caught my attention, then to an orb sort of shape? I was able to get 5 pix using a Fugi f480 digital camera 8.2 mega pixel. 3 of the pix were shot around 6:30pm, the to night shots were take from a gas station just outside of Indio, California, when my son informed me that it was still visible and he had kept his eye on it since it first became visible to us back at the rest stop. Sorry that I had not post this sooner, but I just came across the pictures yesterday!

The British National Archives has released 15 years worth of UFO documents from the Ministry of Defense that include explanations for sightings ranging from advertising gimmicks to meteors, Reuters reports.
In one incident in 1995, two men in Staffordshire reported seeing an alien with a lemon-shaped head emerge from a hovering UFO and tell them, "We want you; come with us."
The news agency says the 609 sightings in 1996 are up from 117 in 1995 and coincide with the rise in popularity of the X Files TV show and release of the alien blockbuster film Independence Day.
The files (from the ministry, not Fox Mulder or Dana Scully) contain more than 4,000 pages. Most sightings are explained as bright stars, meteors, artificial satellites or balloons. About 10% are listed as unexplained, which include "insufficient information" for a judgment.
One series of widely reported sightings was explained as an airship advertising the launch of a Ford automobile, Reuters says.
The most intriguing document involves Britain's best known UFO incident, the Rendlesham Forest sightings of 1980 in which American Air Force men saw a series of mysterious lights.
Although the Thatcher government dismissed the incident, a letter from a former chief of defense staff in 1985 warned it not to be so cavalier, Reuters says.
"The case has puzzling and disquieting features which have never been satisfactorily explained ... which continue to preoccupy informed sections of the public," the letter said.

The solar flare of 1859 was a strong flare that burned out our telegraph systems - set telegraph offices on fire and caused havoc with our compasses. The entire world watched as the sky burst into colorful dancing light as the aura from the flares engulfed the world. The world was not sure what caused this event at the time. Our relationship with the sun was just starting to be realized.
Flares have hit us since however this solar flare storm of 1859 was a big one leaving its mark all over this earth. The world watched in awe as our skies filled with incredible shades of reds washing over the earth as if giving the trees and oceans a bath of blood.
We have known about the sun shooting its angry flares at our planet for a very long time. We know what happened to the telegraph systems during the 1859 hit. It was a warning to what would happen if we continued on with communication and power systems that would be defenseless if another large flare hit. Incredible as it seems we ignored all of these things and did not heed what history taught us in 1859.
We have watched and recorded the solar flare hits since. We just decided to do nothing to prepare for the next big hit. During 2003 we endured a solar flare hit that caused satellites to fail, blackouts to occur and planes to be re- routed. Flying too high or near our poles would mean a high dose of x-ray hits for the poor souls in those planes. Bringing the aircraft down to safer altitudes and re- routing them away from the poles had to be done in order to side step tragic ends to those flying during that time. We sustained damage to our electrical grids and communication systems - however we managed to do so with little or nothing said or known about it at the time.
Those on the earth who knew these flare were due and coming sat and watched -holding their breathe as the flares of 2003 headed towards the earth waiting to see what would happen.
We are all completely vulnerable to solar flare hits. A perfect aligned solar flare hit could bring down our way of life for months. So - in 2003 we sat and waited and by pure luck fate had the flares miss our little blue globe and sweep past us out to space.
Those who knew how lucky we were gave a sigh of relief as this catastrophe missed us. The rest of us wandered around our days oblivious any of this was taking place or how lucky we had been.
The sun like all things in this universe has its natural cycles which includes a 11 year turn of its poles which is when huge sun spots develop which build up in power until they explode out into space releasing huge solar flares. The solar flares depending on their alignment can be a huge problem to the earth. If they hit us dead on we are blasted with extreme x-rays and radiation. This hit of blasting radiation can knock out even completely destroy our communication systems, bring down our satellites, wipe out our space station and burn out our electric grids, phone and cable lines.
This is not a theory this is what will happen if we take a direct hit from a large solar flare. Add to this the fact that we have a hole in our magnetic field, which is what protects us from the sun, and we have the making for a serious event coming our way.
We are due to see these flares during the next cycle of the sun, which will occur in 2012.
Knowing this as fact has me completely confused as to what we have been thinking for the last 50 to 75 years? I have to ask myself over and over if we have not completely lost our collective minds?
We knew and know that the sun has and will continue to explode flares out to space towards our planet. We know they are more severe every 11 years. We know that luck alone has protected us.
We know all these things yet we simply ignored these facts and built our earth top societies to be completely belly up vulnerable to this sure to come crisis of having our way of life completely destroyed.
We know that a direct hit of large solar flares will burn apart, rip apart and destroy our satellites dropping them like old hub caps to the side of a old dirt road yet we keep sending up more? We continue to launch our way of life into space with out any protection for what surely will come? We have not and do not build our communications systems, power systems or infrastructures with the added protective elements needed to survive the coming solar flares knowing fully well what the future will bring. How has this happened and how ridiculous can we be as a society to walk off this cliff willingly?
I have to ask where our thinking was and is building entire societies around electricity, satellite communications, gps guidance, air travel, telephones, computers, televisions, and radio. One huge perfect storm solar flare could wipe out our way of life for months in a matter of a day? The question that nags at me is why did we ignore this knowing that we needed to build all of these things in a way that would protect them from the normal cycles of the sun? How is it we simply ignored this fact of eminent solar flare hits leaving our entire society open for extremely trying times once that system fails?
I have read estimates that it may take a few months at best to restore what a solar flare will destroy if we encounter a direct hit here on earth. I am wondering how the world will deal with being thrown back 200 years in a day’s time to living as we once did without electric, communication or modern travel methods.
I have been in a few large blackouts and know that life as we know it comes to an immediate halt without lights, streetlights or traffic lights. People become agitated and irrational. Driving becomes dangerous and slow. If you add all the other factors of living with out power or communication you have an extremely difficult time surviving.
Finding food and water fuel and heat will become major issues. Simple tasks will become matter of life and death circumstances for those not able to weather such a storm. It will be a disaster like no other as there will not be any communications for the masses to find out what to do or how long things will remain difficult.
If the estimated time of a few months is a reality mass chaos will take place. Those who do not have food, water or a heat source will become desperate. Governments will be forced into actions that may be harrowing for many. All of these things will occur if we are hit with on of our suns perfect storm solar flares and yet- no one is talking about it. Have you seen any news specials concerning preparing for a direct hit from a solar flare? Have you read anything openly discussing this situation anywhere at all?
There are good people out there who have written about this subject. Michio Kaku the physicist talks openly about this offering his thoughts to all who will listen.
However the truth of this matter is that just like the year of 2003 I think the powers that be are going to sit and hold their breath hoping that lady luck will once again throw her dice in our favor and once again we will miss a direct hit and all will be well in the world!
I have never been a gambler. I have never been reckless. I like to eat every day and I hate the freezing cold. I am going to try to the best of my ability to approach 2012 as prepared as I do for hurricane season or the occasional crushing snowstorm that knocks out power and communication in my part of the world. I am going to have canned food and water for my family. I am going to have candles, a heat source and try to figure out what type of radio will work during a solar hit and buy one. I am going to try to be able to stay in my own home to survive the turmoil of what will come if we do face a hit from a perfect storm solar flare. Being prepared may be the only asset we will have to survive an event where our world ends as we know it and life returns to 200 years ago.
When thinking about the coming of 2012 I realize there is more then this one solar flare scenario that we may be facing. Other natural cycles are also due to change. Climate changes, volcano activity earthquakes and pole flips have also been dated due over the next years ahead.
I think the key to what may or may not come over the next few years is to simply be prepared. If you are able to ride out a storm or disaster on your own for at least a few weeks you have a good chance of weathering what ever the future may bring. If we can take care of our own while those responsible for us have time to return us to business as usual we will all have a chance of surviving whatever perfect storm hits.
Finding our way over the years ahead without confusion and despair is the job of each and every one of us. Those who refuse will be blind-sided and may have some very difficult days to weather. I hope you will all research some of what I have talked about today and consider the fact that 2012 may not be the end of the world. It may just be a time of lots of natural changes, which may be normal for the universe around us but extremely difficult for the mere mortals of earth. It is far better to be prepared and never need it then to desperately need it and not have it. I think that will be the way for the coming era known as 2012.

An Arizona witness northbound on I-10 coming in from Tucson noticed "two bright yellow/orange lights in the sky to my left (that would be looking west)."
Photo: Witness image was cropped and enlarged for this page. MUFON database.
The lights would "linger" for a while and then disappear, and then reappear again. The witness pulled over four different times to shoot both video and digital still pictures of the objects, but then became scared and drove home.

A pilot ready for take-off at Houston Intercontinental Airport August 3, 2009, watched "a very bright and large red light" UFO that dropped a smaller light to the ground, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) database.
As the pilot and co-pilot watched the object, it faded away - but then reappeared shortly and was seen moving in a northeasterly direction and bringing it closer to their location.
They described the object as being a "very bright reddish orange color that was a steady light with no flickering. It appeared to be oval shaped."
After they were given clearance to take off, the pilot looked out his left cockpit window and watched as the object "suddenly released another smaller red object and again slowly faded away about the time we reached the runway."
The pilot wanted to alert the tower, but the co-pilot urged him not to say anything. As they turned onto the runway, the object should have then been visible out their right window, but nothing was seen. They climbed out toward the Gulf of Mexico and did not see the object again.
