Living in the Era of 2012 (new daily posts found below this article )


December 21, 2012.  I was recently asked what I think will happen on that day?  My answer was that I  think  many people in the world who celebrate Christmas will be madly wrapping gifts, baking cookies and decorating their homes. Of course I anticipate many parties and celebrations during that time as well. 

 I do not think the world will end  on that day or any other day soon..   I think we will have continued  problems  however I do not think we will have a exploding earth or the end of all things as we know it. 

I realize that  there are endless theories, opinions and predictions  about this specific date. I admit  I have spent many hours reading  articles, books as well as listening to lectures and media specials  on this subject. After all I needed to find out as much as I could about this matter. If the world is really  going to end I want to make sure I start living that way! 

If  I am to truly believe my life may end on  Dec 21st 2012  I want to make sure of my facts .  If this seems to be a  possibility  I need to stop working and start living it up . Who would keep on going to boring jobs or bother cleaning up or eating well if the end was just around the corner?

I talked to the smartest men and women I  could find about this issue. I researched everything I could find concerning 2012 before coming to my conclusions on this matter. I needed to know  if I should I sell everything I own and head for a lovely beach with the ones I love. If the end was coming I intended  to spend my last  days soaking in clear blue water with a wonderful cold drink with a small umbrella hanging over the side. I certainly would not continue the grind of my normal  daily life.  I am sure anyone who truly believed the end was coming would do the same.

After turning over every stone I could on this subject I finally came to my conclusions. As you see I am sitting here typing to you and far from a warm beach. In fact my world is still covered in snow!

Once I was comfortable with my thinking on the 2012 issue I tried to understand why the subject was being pushed upon the public as a certain date of complete doom. So much is true about the era of 2012 being a time of  possible turmoil and change that watching it muddied with  so much that is not true is hard to stomach. I do think the era of 2012 will be a extreme time in history. I do not believe it will be the end of the world.  The one thing we do not need are death merchants preaching false facts to those who may believe them. Not only is this immoral it is cruel. 

 It becomes tedious listening to the screaming doomsday crowd as they spew their   ongoing nonsense  by way of radio shows, web sites and overpriced books that we are all going TO DIE  next year .

 If they truly believed what they were spewing why were they wasting their precious last days sitting in chat rooms or talking to a handful of listeners on internet radio shows?  Come on now -if you really thought the jig was up would that be how you would spend your last days?  I think instead you would be out living your last days of life to the fullest.  You certainly would not be sitting in small groups listening to some fool talk about things that just are not quite true. 

It seems that  2012  is just another subject to terrorize and torment people for the never ending need for attention, fame or money by those who do it.

 I  realized while researching the subject that the claims of many were not based on anything truly concrete and more on opinion, confusion and just plain incorrect information. I am not going to spend my time writing out each item. You can all do the research and will see that finding real facts to fill the huge claims can be a bit exhausting.

The real shame of it  is the 800 pound gorilla in the room has been lost by way of this rush to jump with fraud -over fact concerning the 2012 subject.  After years of looking at this subject I have come to the conclusion that we will all be here doing what we  do during the  Christmas season   of 2012.  

This does not mean that the year 2012 will be an easy year. In fact I do not think 2011 or 2013 or 14 will be easy years either. I think we are knee deep  in what I call 'The Era of 2012'

The era of 2012 is something I  DO  think we need to be extremely concerned about. I  think this is an era where we all need to be pro active so we all  survive what may come.  

By being pro active I do not mean sitting in chat rooms or listening to shows spewing nonsense on things that will not happen. I mean  in your real time life  preparing for things that may REALLY happen.  

This earth like all living things has cycles and changes that have been going on since the start of this planet and will continue to the end of  the earth's life span. As far as our scientific knowledge now stands this planet is at the half way point of its life span. Once our sun dies so will this planet. During the life span of our earth many changes have occurred and will continue to do so.

It is normal for the earth to move its land masses. It is natural for the earth to change its climate as well for it to erupt its volcano's and crack and shift its crust. It is the way of the planet to have devastating storms or times of extreme cold along with covering large areas with drought.

This is the way of this planet and that is not going to change because we  live on it. We are parasites of the planet earth.  We need to learn to be grateful for the life given to us by this planet . We also need to be fully aware we are here to ride the way of the world- not the other way around.

From what we can determine many natural cycles of the world are now not only due but some over due to take place. The magnetic poles are due to shift. Yellow stone volcano is due to erupt too. Earthquakes may happen on large scales as well as climate and land mass movement. 

The sun is changing  as the sun follows its cycles. The sun is also aging as is the earth. The sun can toss solar flares and make changes to our planet with ease. It has in the past and will many times in our future. 

Now add in to all of this natural upheaval the actions and devastation humans bring to the planet. We are constantly at war. We are constantly drilling oil which it a natural lubricant of the earth's  crust which helps keep the land masses stable. We drain the oil without replacing the lubrication. I once read that salt water is suppose to be pumped in to replace the oil we pump out but seriously do not think this takes place.  We pollute and we manipulate the weather with technologies that are surely stepping on mother nature's toes. We enjoy using this planet to fill our needs and wants without giving any thought to the fact the planet may be getting a belly full of us!

I have not included the popular theories concerning aliens taking over the earth in 2012. do not think  these are realistic ideas. I do think  this line of thinking is man made fiction without any truth or basis . I am a true believer in alien life forms and visiting UFO.s  I just do not think they have any relation to Dec 21st 2012.

 I have seen UFO's with my own eyes and have had close encounters during my life time.   I firmly believe  our visitors have nothing to do with our fantasy and fear of 2012. The Era of 2012 will be our cross and ours alone to bare.

If other beings wanted to control or take this planet as their own they would have done so long before we made  it the stinking , bacteria filled, polluted hole it now seems to be. They would not have waited until we had nuclear weapons to make a bigger mess of things or a larger population to deal with. They would have taken their stand long ago when we were a cleaner planet, smaller in population  and easier to control.

The  visitors to this planet  do exactly what they want , when they want, to us and this planet  and always have. The only ones thinking we are worth  great  effort , time or consideration from our visiting neighbors are the humans .

 I think aliens may find us extremely humorous. We are the ones who cannot get off our planet. We are the ones who cannot stop killing each other. We are the ones who have no clue to what really exists in our own universe yet we are the ones who feel all other beings want or think  we are important and desire or need us as part of their existence. I think we are as important to them as a lab rat is to us.

What we need to fear is not being able to handle the things that are due to happen to this planet in the near future. What we need to fear  is starving to death because we did not have that extra supply of can goods or water on hand. What we need to fear is freezing to death because we did not have some kind of heat source in our homes. We need to understand  a great storm, huge power failure or act of war could easily remove us from the energy grid. What we need to fear is the hysteria of the population because no one was prepared for what will surely one day come. 

Could you live in your home if a great disaster occurred for a month with what you have on hand today? If the answer is no I think you need to give a bit of thought to the danger your placing you and your family in as we wade knee deep in  the era of 2012. 

I listen to  paranormal shows,  read many blogs and  watch the TV shows concerning all the tragic events attached to the  subject of 2012.. They spew out like a waterfall of vomiting trash a onslaught  of Hollywood fantasy mixed with twisted facts, false claims always spiced   with  gloom and doom.. It is show time all the way   I can only feel anger and rage at those  doing this. It is a immoral off handed approach to problems that may become very real . 

If you really research many of the things  claimed you will find they are either false, extremely twisted or half truths.  Often they will tell a part of a fact and leave out the entire full truth on the subject  . Those who do this want a story which would clearly place the subject they are trying to build to a large audience for reasons of  fame or money reward . They will gladly  frighten you to death for their personal agenda. Nothing else is at play here other than private gain. Your life is of no importance at all to those who do these things.

 I find this practice simply despicable. There are many people out there that listen to this garbage who believe this nonsense who might  become so traumatized by  a  dim wit telling them aliens are going to show up on big reptile horses and enslave them on Dec 21st 2012- that they may do harm to themselves rather than face that fate. 

That may be extreme however it could happen. The other side of the coin is that they spit out such ridiculous things that people who should be preparing for the devastating events due at this time in history may simply do nothing at all and not heed  real  warnings . This could end in misery for those who did not prepare for what may come. These people may end up the ones paying the price by not preparing for anything at all by way of the fakes and frauds who pollute the facts we do know with shameful self promoting fantasy. 

I believe   we are now in an Era that  will continue to bring us hard natural disasters, extreme planet changes, devastating  events not to mention staring at what seems to be the brink of serious world wars .

We live in a society that is powered by antique power grids using energy systems that simply will not continue to be our future .  We seem reluctant to change and unwilling to listen that things simply cannot and will not go on as they have for you in the past. Survival will be for those who are prepared to the best of their ability.

The simple stocking of canned good so you and the members of your family can survive in your home for a month is something I think all families should do. Having a heat source and light source would also be well advised along with a water supply and first aid kit. 

I  have had people send me angry emails telling me they cannot afford to feed their families now and cannot afford to keep extra food around in case of an emergency. I tell them they need to find a way.

If you could buy on sale canned fruit or vegetables you would have both liquid and calories needed to survive. I think you could stay alive on two cans a day per person. If you spent the next 6 months adding sale canned goods to a emergency supply your family may make it through a devastation. Heat source may be fire or gas or simply huge amounts of blankets. The point is to think about these things and act on them. I know if it meant my family I would sell anything I had or give up internet service until I had a plan and a supply to keep them alive. I say these hard things because I know for a fact we are due  in our future to face some difficult times. 

 I believe we have been warned about this period of time by those in our past history who had to survive similar cycles and events.  These warnings give me both strength to prepare and hope as I realize those who left warnings also survived past world disasters. 

 This earth has given us a lush life as well as showing us terrible destruction. It will continue to do so. Many have survived these times in the past. Many perished as well.
 Many of us too will survive. Sadly many of us also will not. I promise you those who see it coming and are ready to the best of their ability for the possible difficult days ahead will live to see the good days reappear.

I listen to the people who discuss this subject and know there are those who go completely over board and live as if in a military survival camp . I think this is extreme and not needed. I listen to others who do absolutely nothing but sit and listen to nonsense . Those are the  people  who may have some very hard days ahead. I think the best  approach to our future is to be prepared. Be ready to the best of your ability to swim the tide of nature and man without failing due to the fact you did not have that extra can of fruit or soup to keep you alive until order returns .

I listen to those who feel if they have a weapon that they will be fine. I have to ask myself it they want the weapon to kill others who may want what they have or do they intend to kill others to take what they were too lazy to have ready for themselves? 

The major flaw with this plan on all sides is that if you have a weapon chances are everyone else who survived does too. If that is the outcome I suggest you all put down your weapons and try to rise above that level of thinking and figure out together how to continue to survive.  If not I assure you he with the food , water and gun will end up surviving. The gun only gang will starve before they are able to overpower those prepared. That is just how life works. We all need to understand and think about that.

To those who think aliens will land and make all woes  better-  well I just do not think that is going to happen. They may watch from a safe distance to what is happening on this low level planet. They may shake their heads at how unprepared and savage we allowed ourselves to become.
I do not think that they will interfere and certainly do not think they are going to show up to make all your problems disappear. No crafts full of food ,  medicine or hope will be in our future. 

 Aliens are not our Moms and Dads. Aliens are visitors who simply do what they do and move on. Our needs are not their concern. If it were they would have helped long ago. This is not the first go around this planet has had with a era of cycles where horrible things happened to the humans living on the planet. They did not stop or help then I doubt they will now. We are on our own and we need to grow up and understand and  own that fact.

I will admit I do feel that a perfect time for a visiting species to   infiltrate or develop a foot hold or  advantage point on this planet would be  when we are weak and  on our knees fighting for survival. I think it easier to deal with anything  when it is at its weakest point.

As far as our entering a time of enlightenment. That is a very private and misunderstood concept in my thinking. I believe we all are here on this earth to test our free will. Our will that walks us along our roads in life along the paths of good and evil- right and wrong. We walk our journey alone . We all make our own choices. If this is your time of enlightenment you have to understand it has nothing to do with anyone or anything more than your facing your own journey and your own choices. Nothing is going to happen that will swoop down and wipe out all wrongs and lift you to a new wonderful place of light. Please do not sit and wait for that to occur.

Your road to enlightenment is by way of your own hard work. We all need to look at our own life choices and actions. The road to light is by way of a life well lived. If you are a back stabbing, mean spirited self agenda me me me only type of person chances are the road to enlightenment is presently closed for you.

If you are a fair kind person who loves without condition and has done the right thing by those along your life path - you are on the road to light . I do think this era of 2012 will be a testing point for many to the true nature of their souls. With that said it will be a time for redemption and choices that may indeed place those who follow the road of good and turn a back to that of evil  to a time when enlightenment may be your final reward.  The worst of times bring out the true nature of mankind. Only you can decide how you will meet the demands that may come your way.

If we are in a time when we will all face the next path to take in life  you need to have a honest talk with yourself and what your actions in life have been. If you need to make changes and have not been a good person this is the very moment to start. You are your own ladder to enlightenment. Start climbing that ladder today.  The past is gone but every choice and path you choose from this day forward will be your ticket to or not to that place of light we all hope to achieve.  

So there you have it. What I believe and fear about the real Era of 2012. I know many will be very angry that I do not walk hand in hand with the typical paranormal fads and popular topics. I do not know what to say other then I have to walk this planet like everyone else and I plan to do it with the most understanding and knowledge I can. I want to survive. I want to know what happens next and why. I want to be a good person and find my own light. One way for me to reach those goals is to write what I truly believe. I am fully aware I walk my own road . I never was one to follow a path that was not my own.

It is obvious I do not agree with or take part in a great deal that is popular in the world of the paranormal. It is maddening for me as I do know UFO's exist as well as the fact alien beings  pilot them. I talk to people all the time who have had incredible events happen to them but due to the condition of the paranormal world do not want to come forward.

I do think we have been warned that the days ahead will be difficult .  It is obvious we are entering a time of wild weather patterns as well as  other natural events like earthquakes , floods and  volcanic activity. We cannot stop these events . We have been warned these events can be catastrophic for the human race. What we can  do is be as ready as we can possibly be to weather what may come our way. We know hard days will cross our paths. We need to  be ready and we need to be able to  save our  species with awareness and hard work. Otherwise we will perish .

What we do not need is for those claiming to be experts in the world of the paranormal continuing  to  pitch ridiculous scenarios that we are all doomed to die  or are destine to be slaves to another invading species.   I think this is  reckless behavior being done by  people who do not care about anything other than their own reward. I find them despicable people.

I hope each and every one of us will be sitting here in 2015 and years beyond. I wish it were not a time in history to worry or prepare for horrific events.  Unfortunately I think mother nature and the cycles of this planet have other plans for us all.  I truly want to be wrong on all of this however I do not think I am.

Whatever our destiny may be I think it wise for each and every one of us to prepare for the worst and hope for the best . That is the best defense for what may come. . I will prepare and I will pay attention to my surroundings. I also will pray never to see  days I have prepared for.

For now stay alert and be careful out there.

UFO files reveal 'Rendlesham incident' papers missing

Strange Cloud A holidaymaker' s photo of an "airburst" in Sri Lanka was sent to the MoD, the files show
Intelligence papers on a reported UFO sighting known as the "Rendlesham incident" have gone missing, files from the National Archives reveal.
The missing files relate to a report of mysterious lights from US servicemen at RAF Woodbridge in Suffolk in 1980.

The disappearance came to light with the release of 8,000 previously classified documents on UFOs.

Officials found a "huge" gap where defense intelligence files relating to the case should be, the papers show.

Russian rocket
The documents are the latest MoD files on UFOs released into the National Archives which will be free to access on its website for a month.

There is nothing to convince Her Majesty's government that there has ever been a single visit by an alien spacecraft”
End Quote Lord Stabolgi Government spokesman 
They reveal UFOs were discussed by UN officials in 1977 and a debate was held in the House of Lords two years later.

Photographs and sketches of UFOs made by members of the public are included, as well as their eyewitness reports.

Among the documents is testimony from an airline pilot and his son who say they spent five minutes watching an object made up of three circles fly past their garden in Hellingly, East Sussex.

The pilot reported it to Air Traffic Control in West Drayton, and an official labeled his sighting as one by "a credible witness".

But another defense official later wrote a memo saying the report "contains nothing of air defense significance".

More attention is given to the crew of an RAF Tornado who encountered an object the size of a C130 Hercules transport aircraft while flying over the North Sea in 1990.

The pilot describes flying at Mach 0.8 but being overtaken by an aircraft the like of which he had never seen before. 

He talks about lights and even "an engine area" but the files also show how a possible explanation emerges - a Russian rocket booster was re-entering the earth's atmosphere on that same night.

In other papers it was revealed that the RAF received calls in 1967 from members of the public across Southern England from the Isle of Sheppey to the Bristol Channel reporting six small "flying saucers". Four police forces and the Army were mobilized before it emerged the incident was a rag-day hoax by engineering students at Farnborough Technical College.
There is also a report from a London man who believed he may have been abducted by aliens.

Minister's request
The files reveal that key documentation relating to the Rendlesham Forest incident has disappeared. 

Some UFO researchers believe the episode, which happened over two nights in 1980 is a classic example of a "close encounter".
UFO drawing Crop circles provoked this sketch by a member of the public
The incident took place near the fence of RAF Woodbridge - at that time being used by the US Air Force. A group of servicemen reported seeing strange lights in the trees near the base and after investigating found marks on the ground and damage to vegetation.
The files reveal the MoD received a request for its own records of the incident in 2000, but when officials looked they discovered a "huge" gap where defense intelligence files relating to it should be.

The hunt generated a series of notes, with one official speculating that the files could have been taken home by someone and another remarking that "it could be interpreted to mean that a deliberate attempt had been made to eradicate the records covering this incident".
However, among intelligence papers released in 2009, it was revealed that former Admiral of the Fleet Lord Hill-Norton wrote to the defense secretary about the incident in 1985, speculating that an unauthorized aircraft may have entered and left UK airspace at the time.
But it is not the only gap in the official record. In 2002 the MoD received a request for information from Lord Hill-Norton. He wanted to know about reports of a UFO sighting made by HMS Manchester while on exercise in the 1990s.

It emerged in the file that HMS Manchester's log for one of the periods was lost overboard after "a gust of wind" and the vessel's captain cannot remember anything unusual taking place.

Natural explanations
This latest tranche of documents covers not just people who contacted the Ministry of Defence after seeing lights or objects, but also sheds some light on official thinking about this aspect of the paranormal.

Concern about UFOs and what they might be went up to senior level and lasted several years. 

Officials were dismayed when in 1977 the then Prime Minister of Grenada Sir Eric Gairy wanted to call for the United Nations to set up a unit to investigate the phenomenon.
UFO sketch Sketches of UFOs are among the files released by the National Archives
The files show how Britain was concerned the idea would drag the UN into disrepute. The premier was persuaded to withdraw his proposal but went on to call for 1978 to be designated "the year of the UFO". He was deposed in a coup the following year.
UFOs have only ever received one debate in Parliament. It came in the House of Lords in 1979, at the height of the "winter of discontent", and the files show how officials laboured to prepare a government position on the topic. 

At the end of the discussion the government spokesman Lord Stabolgi summed up what remains the official position now.

"There is nothing to convince Her Majesty's government that there has ever been a single visit by an alien spacecraft. As for telling the public the truth about UFOs, the truth is simple.

"There really are many strange phenomena in the sky, and these are invariably reported by rational people. But there is a wide range of natural explanations to account for such phenomena."


6 Signs That You Might Be Psychic

If you've always suspected that you have extrasensory perception, here are six signs that you indeed might be psychic

THOSE WHO HAVE made a lifetime of the study of psychic phenomena suspect that most, if not all of us are psychic to one degree or another. I'm sure most of us can point to events in our lives that indicate instances of telepathy (communication of thoughts) or precognition (knowing what is going to happen). Perhaps it's only happened once or a few times.
Perhaps, however, it happens to you quite frequently. Can you then be considered truly, strongly psychic? Here are six signs to look for.

1. You know the phone is going to ring and who is calling
We have all experienced this phenomenon, and when it happens once in awhile we can chalk it up to coincidence. Or perhaps there are people who call you regularly at expected times. Those instances we can dismiss.

But have you ever sensed a phone call from someone totally unexpected - perhaps someone you haven't heard from in years? Then the phone rings and it is that person! This could be an indication of the psychic phenomenon known as precognition - knowing something before it happens. And if this kind of thing happens on a fairly regular basis, you might be psychic.

2. You know your child, or someone else very close to you, is in trouble
We all worry about the safety our loved ones, especially when they are separated from us. Quite naturally, parents carry a deep concern about their children when they are at school, off with other children, or away on a trip. But we temper this worry or concern (or try to) with reason and an acknowledgment that our loved ones cannot always be under our supervision.

There have been many cases, however, in which a parent knows that her child has been injured or is in trouble. This is no ordinary worry. The feeling is so intense and persistent that the parent is compelled to check on the child - and sure enough, there has been an accident. Such a psychic connection has been documented between parent and child, spouses and partners, siblings and, of course, twins. If you have had such as experience, you might be psychic.

3. You know a place before you go to it
Perhaps you have had the experience or going to a person's house that you've never been to before, yet everything about it is familiar. This can happen when house shopping, too. You know exactly where every room is, what it looks like, and how it is decorated. You may even have knowledge of tiny details, such as chipped paint or unusual light fixtures. Yet you know you have never been there before.

It could be that you have been to the place before and have forgotten. Or perhaps this is a case of déjà vu - that eerie feeling that we've done or seen an exact thing before. But déjà vu is usually a fleeting feeling about a brief exchange of words, gestures or sights. It is rarely prolonged or vividly detailed. (See the book The Déjà Vu Enigma by Marie D. Jones and Larry Flaxman.) So if you have this knowing about a place you never been to before, you might be psychic.

4. You have prophetic dreams
We all dream, and we all have a variety of dreams about people we know, famous people, and even perhaps things that are going on in the world. So it stands to reason that just by chance we will have a dream about someone or something that later comes to pass (to one degree or another) in real life.

But do you often have dreams about yourself, friends and family, or even world events that soon come to pass in detail in real life? Prophetic dreams like this are reportedly often different than normal dreams. They are more lucid, vivid, detailed, and compelling. If so, you should write down these dreams right after you have them because you don't want to forget them, and you want to have a record of them – and they can be evidence that you might be psychic.

5. You can sense or know something about an object (or person) just by touching it
Have you ever picked up an object that didn't belong to you and you were overcome with a knowledge about that object – it's history and who it belonged to? Likewise, have you shook the hand of a new acquaintance and instantly known all about them – where they're from, what they do and what they are like?

It could be that you are just a highly perceptive person who can deduce information about an object or person just by looking at them and touching them. But if you are able to provide many accurate details about these things that you would otherwise have no possible way of knowing, you might have the rare kind of extrasensory perception known as psychometry – and you might be psychic.

6. You regularly tell your friends what is going to happen to them – and it does
Do you have a habit of telling friends and family about specific experiences they are going to have? Do you sometimes warn them ahead of time about dangers or circumstances that would not be in their best interest? Are you right more often than not?

Because we know our friends and family well, it certainly is logical to assume that we can sometimes predict was might happen to them – both good and bad. This is simply because we know their personalities, their habits and even some of their plans and we can make reasonable guesses. This is not what we're talking about. We're talking about strong feelings that you have – that seem to come out of nowhere and are not based on anything you know about the person – about something that is about to happen to them. It's a powerful feeling and you are compelled to tell them about it, even warn them if necessary. If those events come to pass, you might be psychic.

 MUFON report  Arkansas USA  3-1-2011

Long Description of Sighting Report I was in the parking lot at my work, saw the strange light in the sky and took this photo. it moved across the sky heading east north east at an unknown speed, I would guess it to be much like a aircraft speed.

 MUFON Report  Portugal 

Iam a professional photographer from Portugal, this shots was made on a night of bad weather, i was just photographing the lightnings when i notice of this object in one photo with 30 seconds of exposure, i made more photos on the same place with the same 30 seconds, its apears on 3 photos not on the fourth, i was shooting from my house on a open window no glasse in front because its was not raining, this for the first object i dindnt not see it with my eyes because the flash of the lighting, the second onde i noticed something when i shot it and look for i something diferent after on the photo and i see that triangular shape form, i got photos from the same place of the first whit some lense flare but not like that or that shape, but its always possible because of the lights of the city, but i never found that shape on flare, because the point of more light is outside the object and not in the middle as we usualy got on dots of flare. on second photo it can be from the lightning that shape i dont know i sharpness the photo so i can see better the shape, on that case i think its not flare.


In from the cold: After 5,300 years, Oetzi the iceman finally shows his face

By Matt Blake
Last updated at 5:59 PM on 1st March 2011

He doesn't look half bad for a 5,300-year-old.
Since his discovery in 1991, Oetzi the iceman's true identity has been shrouded in myth and mystery. Just a faceless corpse that has embodied a bygone era of humankind.
But experts have finally worked out what the world's most famous natural mummy actually looked like.
Old timer: Until now Oetzi the iceman's true identity has been shrouded in myth and mystery - just a faceless corpse that has embodied a bygone era of humankind

Using 3D images of the corpse and forensic technology, two Dutch artists - Alfons and Adrie Kennis - painstakingly created a new Oetzi model.

Mexico: Strange Animal Kills and Exsanguinates Prey

** Three attacks in one week in Chihuahua, Mexico**

The first incident was recorded in the early hours of 16 February with 12 dead sheep and others with severe wounds.

The affected party stated that his animals were in a pen with a two meter tall fence, which natural predators are unable to penetrate. Even so, the strange animal entered and attacked the sheep without eating them, relieving them of their blood and leaving marks suggesting a jaw that can open up to 20 centimeters. There were also scratches and puncture marks from long fangs in evidence. Lambs had their heads crushed.

The second attack occurred during the first hours of Monday, 21 February on the property of Mr. Roberto Villalobos, with 20 dead sheep.

The third attack took place again on Mr. Villalobos’s property.

“The custodian saw what was happening and unleashed a Great Dane to fight the animal, which he was able to see in the shadows. But the dog fled after receiving a push from the assailant,” said a startled Roberto Villalobos.

Local residents are fearful of going out in the evening, saying that for a week now they have been victimized by attacks from an unknown animal whose prints they are unable to recognize.

The place where the events occurred is Estación de Terrazas, a rural areal located 40 km from Chihuahua’s state capital.


Wednesday, 16 February – 12 dead sheep, 10 wounded
Monday, 21 February – 20 dead sheep, 25 injured
Friday, 25 February – 15 dead sheep

[Note from Prof. Ana Luisa Cid: “It should be noted that similar attacks were also reported in Tapachula, Chiapas (southeastern Mexico) on 22 February”]

These photos were taken by Guy Winters when he and friend were investigating the O'Hare mansion in Greencastle, Indiana. They were told about the old abandoned house by another friend who said he and his girlfriend were scared away from it by some ghostly entity. So with permission of the owner, Guy and Terry went to explore the property. Armed with video and film cameras, the team spend a couple of days, in both daylight and at night, looking for evidence of possible haunting activity.
The above photos are the remarkable result of a picture Guy took of one of the upstairs windows. The image of a vaporous pink ghostly woman is rather clear. Guy did not see the figure at the time he snapped the photo, but saw it only after the film was developed. An analysis of the film determined that the image is present on the film's negative. The bottom right photo is a digital enhancement, which reveals a skull-like appearance for the ghost's face.

Spain: Remembering the Vilobí "Yeti"

Spain: Remembering the Vilobí "Yeti"
By Javier Resines

Forty three years ago, on February 26, 1968, a curious encounter occurred in the Catalonian municipality of Vilobí del Penedés, a little over than sixty kilometers from Barcelona.

U.S. author and journalist John A. Keel (of Mothman fame) included it in his book Strange Creatures from Time and Space El Enigma de las Extrañas Criaturas), published in 1987 by Editorial Mitre. Keel describes the experiences of some frightened children as they observed a sort of large apelike being in the environs of this community. What seemed at first a figment of boyish imagination acquired credibility when the creature was also reported by several adults in what appeared to be a Bigfoot "mini-flap" in the area.

According to the Arriba newspaper in the next day's issue (27 Feb '68): "The animal drank water from a pond near the eyewitnesses' home. It fled, leaving a certain number of large footprints -- 40 centimeters long -- resembling those of a plantigrade. These footprints match those of the description offered by motorist Roberto Juver, who claimed having encountered an animal with a large, hairy body and long arms several days before near Hostalrich. It crossed the road in front of him, walking with a tired gait."

The newspaper reported that neither local zoos nor circuses had reported any missing animals that could have caused the confusion. A measure of panic permeated the area and massive searches were conducted, and were fruitless, as usual.




Life on other planets: latest discovery comes after string of recent signs of extraterrestrials

Nasa research indicating that half of the stars in the universe are orbited by planets much like Earth has reignited speculation about the existence of alien life.

Experts examining results from the Kepler telescope have identified more than 1,200 planets in orbit around distant stars, 54 of which are a similar size to Earth and in habitable zones from their suns.
The research follows several recent discoveries which point to the possibility of life on other planets.
Last year, Nasa scientists claimed they had found vital clues which appeared to indicate that primitive aliens could be living on Titan, one of Saturn’s biggest moons.
Data from Nasa's Cassini probe revealed the complex chemistry on the surface of Titan, which experts say is the only moon around the planet to have a dense atmosphere.
Experts suggested that life forms may have been breathing in the planet’s atmosphere and also feeding on its surface’s fuel.

A research paper, in the journal Icarus, claimed that hydrogen gas flowing throughout the planet’s atmosphere disappeared at the surface. This suggested that alien forms could in fact breathe.

A second paper, in the Journal of Geophysical Research, concluded that there was lack of the chemical on the surface Scientists were then led to believe it had been possibly consumed by life.

Researchers had expected sunlight interacting with chemicals in the atmosphere to produce acetylene gas. But the Cassini probe did not detect any such gas.

In 2008, astronomers found organic chemicals on a planet outside our solar system, which was also heralded as a milestone in the hunt for extraterrestrial life.

Researchers identified water in the atmosphere of HD 189733b, a so-called alien planet close to its parent star and too hot for conditions favourable for life as we understand it.
But the ability of scientists to analyse its atmosphere and detect carbon-based molecules was a crucial feat in efforts to find planets that may harbour extraterrestrial life.

The finding, reported in the journal Nature, made the planet one of the best understood of hundreds detected. It was discovered in 2005 in the constellation Vulpecula, a realm so distant that it takes light 63 years to reach Earth.

The achievement demonstrated the ability to detect organic molecules in "Goldilocks zones'' – so-called because they are just right for liquid water, neither too hot nor too cold.

The planet is made of gas similar, but hotter, to that found on Jupiter. Previous studies predicted that methane and water would be present in its atmosphere, but definitive evidence had not been found. Water has already been detected on another alien world.

Using light analysed by the Hubble Space Telescope, Dr Mark Swain of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, and colleagues confirmed the presence of methane. They also reported that they found the signature of water, though carbon monoxide, originally expected to be abundant in the upper atmosphere, was not identifiable.

On Earth, methane is produced by natural sources such as termites, oceans and cows, but also man-made sources such as waste landfills.

A discovery much closer to home also ignited a frenzy of speculation about aliens last year, when experts detected a microbe at the bottom of a lake capable of living in conditions previously thought to be inhospitable to any form of life.

Researchers found a microbe at the bottom of Mono Lake in Yosemite National Park that was thriving in an arsenic—rich environment previously thought too poisonous for any form of life to survive.

It raised the prospect that similar life could exist on planets without the Earth's benevolent atmosphere.


Argentina: Police Escorted by UFO (2001)

Riding in the police cruiser shown in the photograph, the persons aboard were arranged as follows: Sgt. Flores was at the wheel, with the unnamed officer beside him. Behind the driver’s seat was officer Corimayo. Beside him was a woman (allegedly accused of a crime) and in the back, which was covered by a tarp to ward off the nocturnal chill, was at least one more person.

They entered the Agua de los Loros curve after 0400 in the morning, approximately, as they were due in Salta at 0700 hours. As they prepared to enter the “Recta de Tin Tin” segment, they noticed a luminous dot in the distance, much larger than a star.

“We drove along Route 33,” says Corimayo, “and once were in the Recta, where [the sign] for the Los Cardones National Park is located, toward the east, more or less around Cerros Tirados, which are some 20-30 kilometers away, Flores says to me: “Look, it’s a farol (evil light).”

Officer Corimayo detected the luminous dot at Flores’s indication and recalled the oft-mentioned faroles that tend to appear to travelers at night. The considerable mentions of these objects made by people leads them to look at the object fixedly, because neither man had hitherto run into a “farol

Flores, in order to draw the strange light’s attention, turned on the police pickup truck’s beacons. The law enforcement officer’s position regarding the comments of their fellow residents is reinforced, as these lights are believed to respond to signs made by travelers.

What they did not imagine is that the response would be so immediate and shocking.

“He turned on the beacons and the thing was beside us in a matter of seconds. We were driving along and the thing got on our left.”

The object made a swift movement, covering several kilometers in an instant, placing itself at a distance no greater than 400 meters from the pickup truck and at an altitude of no more than 40 meters of the ground. “That’s when we realized it wasn’t a farol,” Corimayo remarked.

The object’s size was much larger than expected (several meters in diameter) although it was hard to come up with an exact figure.

The iridescent object was predominantly spherical, but with a highly luminous main body, making it difficult to specify greater morphological complexities. What was notable is that it was surrounded by other very bright lights – green, red and violet – which according to the policemen, could be compared to disco lights.

“The object’s lights were always on. It was like a Christmas tree, intermittent.”

“In the measure that we shifted from low-to-high beams on the pick-up truck, the object did the very same. It accompanied us for a distance, and our speed was minimal. And this object was always with us, occasionally ascending and descending...”

Throughout the 18 kilometer length of the straight segment, the police vehicle’s speed at no point exceeded 30 kilometers an hour due to the attention given by the protagonists to the encounter. Corimayo notes that they were basically traveling at a “walking speed”, and that this enabled them to see structural details, and the movements of the phenomenon, which kept a regular and steady distance.

“I figure that it was larger than a truck,” says the officer, cautioning that the measure wasn’t exact due to distance.

Regarding a question during our interview on the police officers’ personal position on the phenomenon, we must make their conclusions on the display of activity clear. Flores, and especially Corimayo, say the following: “I think that the (object) acted according to our provocations, because on turning on the squad car’s lights, it did the same. We turned off the lights and it did the same, but not the white light, just the colored lights surrounding it. In other words, we turned out the beacons and they also turned on the contour area where the colors were emitted.”

“It was like playing a game with them. They responded in kind.”

We inquired whether they had any doubts about playing a game, an “interaction” that could have jeopardized their safety. “No,” says Corimayo, “ that was exactly what we were doing.”

According to the story, it is clear that party invited to play the game of questions and answers was the ring of colored lights surrounding the anomaly. The lights appeared to extend to suggest a slightly elliptical shape to the main source of light.

The protagonists’ conduct had been overall serene. However, the most restless party was Sgt. Flores. There had been a nearly provocative attitude on the policemen’s part by repeating the luminous signals and even some words and gestures that were aimed at the object. They do not specifically mention it, but they have suggested making gestures, shouting and even showing defiance upon seeing that there was no danger. The object however, appeared to respond with changes and alterations to its luminous structure that cannot be attributed to casual synchronicity, according to them.

The Most Intense Moment

As soon as they realized that the end of the straight segment was at hand, Flores made a disquieting calculation. If it followed the course, parallel to the road, the object would reach the curve facing Los Cajoncillos, where the paved road comes to an end, turning into a dirt path. At that point, the phenomenon would cross in front of them and block the road.

And so it happened. The object crossed in front of them.

“...we weren’t thinking. When it happened suddenly, we were scared, first because we saw it at the side of the hill,” says Flores. I felt that our vehicle’s lights dimmed, because I never dimmed them. Later on, I threw myself onto the shoulder, because we were afraid that the object would land with our engine paralyzed.”

No sooner had they entered the curve, where the dirt road starts, that the object halted and the electrical interference began. The pickup truck was left on the road’s right shoulder no more than 100 meters from the light.

Flores and Corimayo descended from the car. It was then that they saw the object in all its glory. It was slightly oval, its size easily surpassed the road’s width, making it greater than ten or fifteen meters.

They noticed a slight pulsing within the luminous figure, a beating of the surrounding lights that hinted at a subtle modification of sphere to ellipse, “like something beating”.
Without any possibility of leaving the area, they were overcome by the sight. They could not determine if the object had landed, given they way it projected its light. The brightness extended no less than 100 meters around, casting its light on them. Moreover, just watching it made their eyes burn.

The main light was white, and the colored ones twinkled intermittently, making it seem as though flashes of color dominated the perimeter, quickly changing to another tone “as though it were a rainbow”. They were unable to pick up any odors, sounds or significant changes in temperature.

“It was like wanting to look at the sun’s structure, and you can’t. We got out of the vehicle to see if some noise could be heard, but nothing.”

The phenomenon’s striking beauty and its irradiation dominated the entire field of vision, and barely made visible any additional details to the ones already described. It remained there for five minutes until it made a graceful move to the right, remaining no less than 700 meters from the witnesses.

“As I left the car lights on, once the object pulled away, the headlights came on by themselves. At that moment I told Officer Corimayo that we should return to Cachi. The object ascended by remained there, over the mountains, and the road becomes difficult around Cuesta del Obispo. We were afraid that it would come close again on the downward road.”

The road ahead would lead them through the sinuous complexities of the descent through Cuesta del Obispo, over mountain cliffs and rift valleys. But the officers decided to continue their journey to fulfill the mission entrusted to them by the police.

“The object remained to the right of us,” Corimayo remarks, “some six hundred meters. We continued to Piedra del Molino, and the road begins to go down. That’s where it becomes Cuesta del Obispo. Up to there, the object was on our right, but from the moment we descended into Valle Encantado, I saw it above us, overhead. That is to say, I had to put my head out the window to see it. I saw it much higher up and smaller. After that, the fog on the downhill road became very dense and we lost it from sight. We stopped seeing it right in Valle Encantado.”

Corimayo adds something about the moment in which the object departed from the road: “It took off, how should I a shooting star. As intense as a lightning bolt, tilted to the right, toward the West. There it went up and down. It escorted us a little bit further, maybe some 600-700 meters.”

“At that time I asked the sergeant: What do we do? Do we stay put? We’re going to have to go on because we’re expected early in Salta. Flores was saying we should stay until it became less dark.”

A while after they stopped seeing it, possibly half an hour, the witnesses began to feel some dizziness, headache and intermittent nausea that they attributed to the powerful light they had seen for such a long time. According to their description, these symptoms were passing. They had refreshments on the road and were able to continue to the city of Salta with nearly an hour’s delay. These symptoms were not medically treated, and therefore, there are no records to evaluate.

The reached Salta around 0815 hours, over an hour late.

The police officers state that the sighting -- from its beginning until the object vanished from sight – took approximately an hour and a half . This is based on following the story, knowing the road, determining the landmark moments of the experience...and entirely coherent and feasible time period, bearing in mind the terrain and distance involved.

Evidence Neanderthals used feathers for decoration

( -- Researchers studying a large deposit of Neanderthal bones in Italy have discovered the remains of birds along with the bones, and evidence the feathers were probably used for ornamentation. The findings add evidence that the now extinct Neanderthals could have been as cultured as our own ancestors.


Fresh Inca treasures unearthed as discovery of nine tombs in Peruvian Andes is hailed as 'the most significant since Machu Picchu'

By Daily Mail Reporter
It could force historians to reconsider the origins of the mighty Inca empire.
Archaeologists have discovered and excavated nine tombs in Peru from the pre-Hispanic Wari civilisation, the Peruvian government said yesterday.
The finding in the southern Cusco region suggests the Wari, who flourished in the Peruvian Andes between 700 and 1200 AD, may have controlled areas where the Inca empire later flourished.

Juan Ossio, Peru's minister of culture, said: 'The Incas could have been inspired by the Wari culture, enabling them to develop their entire political system.'
The Incas built the largest empire in the New World between 1400 and 1532 AD.

 If you have problems with your computer or TV- cell phones etc. you will know why!

EASTERN BLAST: The quiet didn't last long. Earth-orbiting satellites detected an M3-class solar flare at 0735 UT on Feb. 24th. The source was an active region located just behind the sun's eastern limb. The eruption produced strong radio emissions, a coronal mass ejection (not Earth directed), and this spectacular picture taken by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory:
The active region responsible for this blast will emerge over the eastern limb during the next 24-48 hours, setting the stage for possible geoeffective solar activity. Stay tuned for updates.


Ret. Col. Says UFOs Are Real, but Denies Government Cover-Up

 Whether you believe or disbelieve the notion that UFOs are visitors from another planet, a former highly decorated military officer now comes forward with information that may infuriate those on both sides in the ongoing ET debate.

Retired Col. John Alexander
, using his military savvy and high security clearance, spent a quarter of a century going through the top levels of the U.S. government and military searching for the group of people who were allegedly responsible for UFO information and the supposedly decades-old UFO cover-up.

His conclusions: Not only is there no such group and no cover-up, but disclosure about UFOs has already occurred on different official levels.

Retired Army Col. John Alexander says UFO disclosure has already occurred, and the ultimate solution to UFOs is more complex than most people think.
With so many people crying out these days for the U.S. government or the United Nations or even the Vatican to issue some sort of "we are not alone in the universe" disclosure statement, Alexander says the information has been dripping out all around us, over decades, with top officials casually making statements about UFOs.

He references this 1950 remark made by President Harry Truman: "I can assure you the flying saucers, given that they exist, are not constructed by any power on Earth."

"Disclosure has happened," Alexander added. "It starts with former presidents Truman, Carter, Reagan and [the Soviet Union's] Gorbachev. I've got stacks of generals, including Soviet generals, who've come out and said UFOs are real. My point is, how many times do senior officials need to come forward and say this is real?" Alexander told AOL News.

"At one time, before a lot of this information was released, I could see both the classified and the unclassified material. And I will tell you that 98 percent of the information was already in the public domain. The only things that weren't there was stuff like sources and method, which is protected, but the information about the incident was already out there."

Several months ago, a group of ex-military officers came forward to discuss their experiences when UFOs reportedly tampered with American nuclear missile sites. While Alexander acknowledges the events, he suggests why there was no intense intelligence investigation of these incidents.

"They absolutely happened, but when it's a one-time event, the attitude of investigators is: If it happens again, we'll get nervous, but since it didn't happen, put it aside.

"It's sort of an indictment that says, despite overwhelming evidence of interaction with strategic systems, nothing was done. And in my view, it is put, like a number of things, in the too-tough-to-handle bin."

The 74-year-old former Green Beret A-Team commander and developer of weapons at Los Alamos, N.M., is one of many speakers presenting his views at this week's International UFO Congress in Scottsdale, Ariz. He takes issue with both true believers (who assume any strange light in the sky is from another planet) and hard-nosed skeptics (who debunk any and all UFO reports and evidence to the contrary).

International UFO Congress
Nearly 30 speakers are attending this week's International UFO Congress in Scottsdale, Ariz.
In his new book, "UFOs: Myths, Conspiracies and Realities" (Thomas Dunne Books), Alexander jumps right to the chase, saying, "UFOs are real! With no prevarication or qualification of terms, there are physical objects of unknown origin that do transit our universe. The evidence that supports those statements is simply overwhelming."

The evidence he speaks of includes the hard data of sensor technology that has frequently confirmed the reality of physical craft and the high quality of extremely reliable eyewitnesses who are "neither misreporting facts nor delusional."

After spending decades deeply embroiled behind the scenes, Alexander's assertion of the reality of UFOs still leaves the bigger question: What's the origin and purpose of these unexplained machines? (If, in fact, they are machines in the sense that we use that term.)

"The problem is, when you discuss UFOs, we are talking everything from little balls of light to hard craft a mile or more across, and everything in between. So what is it?" Alexander asked.

"I argue that, not only are we not solving the problems yet, we're not even asking the right questions, because we approach this wrong.

"I suspect that consciousness is a piece of the puzzle. We talk about UFOs, saying it's a technology that's 1,000 years in advance, but it really isn't. If you follow the history of these things, usually it is somewhat in advance, but not beyond our comprehension by any stretch of the imagination.

"The conundrum you get into is, yes, they are seen by sensors; however, at other times, they are not seen by sensors that should've seen them, and that's one I can't answer."

Alexander is a frequent guest on "Coast to Coast AM With George Noory," the popular overnight radio program. George Knapp, a multiple Emmy Award-winning investigative reporter and a weekend "Coast to Coast" host, praises Alexander's stance and suggests his book "will almost certainly infuriate zealots on both ends of the UFO spectrum."

In his review of Alexander's book, Knapp wrote: "Alexander's military mind instinctively gets to the heart of UFO cases and issues, makes quick work of charlatans and fools, and will likely inspire a new round of speculation about his presumed role as an MIB-type spook who spies on the UFO community."

In the early 1980s, Alexander created a behind-the-scenes government UFO study group called Advanced Theoretical Physics, or ATP, that consisted of members of the military, scientific and intelligence communities. With a top-secret security clearance, Alexander also had a tremendous amount of flexibility.

A key outcome of that study group was, contrary to conspiracy theorists' beliefs, that nobody in the government was responsible for UFO information.

He says that after his ATP group looked at many UFO cases, they came to some key conclusions:
  • There was sufficient evidence supported by high-quality data to know that some UFO cases were real anomalies -- not just poor observation or misidentification.
  • There were cases involving military weapon systems that posed a significant threat and should be investigated.
  • Multisensory data supported observations of physical craft that performed intelligent maneuvers that were far beyond any known human capability.
  • There were cases that involved trace physical evidence.
  • Study of the UFO data could provide a potential for a leap in technology.
All that being said, Alexander also states that the infamous Roswell, N.M., UFO case of 1947 was not, in fact, a crashed alien spacecraft but a top-secret military project called Mogul.

"It was a real incident, no doubt about it. The Air Force played it abysmally, but I think there is a prosaic answer, and that was Project Mogul," Alexander explained. "It wasn't a weather balloon -- it was something really quite different. This was designed to listen to the Soviet Union.

"So when they say it was stretched out across the field, yup, exactly the way it was done. It was supersecret and it didn't involve UFOs."

After many years of deep research into UFOs, Alexander is convinced from both a personal and military point of view that it's a much more complex issue than the idea of Earth being visited by extraterrestrials. He proposes a concept called precognitive sentient phenomena.

"The point is there is something out there that is sentient. When I say precognitive, it knows -- whatever it is -- not only what it is going to present, but how we are going to respond to it.

"The public is interested but ambivalent in general. The public believes in UFOs, but it doesn't affect their daily lives," Alexander explained. "In the military, you learn very quickly it is not career-enhancing to bring up anomalies that you don't have good answers for.

"There's a euphemism in the military: If you bring me a problem, bring me a solution."

Disneyland Ghost?

This video taken of security camera monitors at Disneyland appears to show a ghost walking around on the grounds at night. What's interesting is that the apparition is captured by multiple cameras, and it seems to walk right through closed gates and even across water. Some believe it to be the ghost of Walt Disney himself. Is it camera trickery or the real thing?


In  the year 1992  newspapers on Long Island New York reported a suspected UFO crash on November 24th in South Haven Park located in Suffolk county. You can find reports on this event with an easy Google search.

I remember the event as I lived in Suffolk county New York at the time and recall all the talk and newspaper reports concerning  this event. It seemed to be the main topic of conversation for a short time but soon lost its interest as the holidays were just starting and the UFO story seemed to lose its headlines to Santa and the Malls. I realize now this event was the big news of that entire year!

Years passed and the interest in this crash  faded.  Quickly the coverage of this incident  went from  a fantastic event with fire engines and military equipment involved  in the incident to a complete turnaround of the fire house chiefs suddenly claiming they were not there and never helped with any event in the park.

The police and military also gave statements to the same effect with the newspapers and  TV news repeating the same denials. Soon the event lost the public's eye and was forgotten.

Actually  the event was forgotten by those who did not see it happen or live in the area at the time. Those who witnessed the event and watched the fire engines, police and military enter and work in the park for days had a different account of what took place. Most of the people involved  who witnessed the entire encounter quickly learned that going against the tide did not work out well as they were ridiculed and laughed at. I recall one local radio announcer at the time offering  aluminum foil hats to those making the claims the crash did happen.

Quickly the conversation of the crash died away and life moved on. 

I wrote an article about this incident involving a man I knew who told the story at a dinner party  that he not only recalled the UFO crash he saw it happen with his own eyes. 

The  man  was a love interest of a  friend of mine. The man lived in a very rustic cabin  located along the border of the South Haven Park area.   In the late 90' I was invited to a dinner party this man and my friend hosted. . The man lived in  a cabin  that was a  old dilapidated three-room building that he was holding together with duck tape and hope. It was hard to imagine anyone living there full time. It was however neat and clean and made for an interesting dinner.

Two large wood burning stoves heated it with his water supply borrowed by way of hoses from his neighbor’s barn. I do not recall if he had electric or not as the party was lit by candles. I do know he heated water on his stoves to wash dishes and take a bath every few days. It did have a working bathroom- sort of.

He lived off the land, which meant he helped himself to the local farmers crops taking his vegetables and fruits from their farms at night by way of flashlight and climbing fences. He also hunted in restricted areas, fished often and always killed the ducks in the area for his seasonal dinner parties. He would brag openly at how little he actually purchased to live or entertain. I found him to be  cheap and a thief. I was not impressed that he helped himself to his neighbors crops or that he was killing animals in restricted state protected areas. He was a strange man who felt entitled to do things others  would not think of doing.

Our dinner party consisted of stolen fruit and vegetables along with freshly killed ducks. The old house was blazing with candles. set upon a long handmade wooden table He used his grandmothers china and had a fire going in his  large wood burning stove. Strangely it was a interesting enjoyable night. 

 At the end of the evening we were sipping coffee and sharing  homemade fruit pies when the subject came up about the UFO crash in the nearby park years before in 92.
 The man who lived in the cabin  told us that he had  seen the crash happen . The man started his account of the crash by telling us he would deny all of it as he had no intentions of ending up in a mess of trouble . 

He then told us that he often use to wait until dark and climb the fence down the road from his cabin that surrounds that part of the park. He told us that it was easy picking for him to quickly gather up fallen tree branches and logs to burn in his cabins stoves. He reminded us no one is suppose to go  in the park and do that which is why he  did not want  anyone to know what he had witnessed.

He told us he was carrying  wood back to his truck. when he heard  a huge rushing air sound with a high-pitched whine.. At first he didn’t see anything .   The sound kept getting  louder. He looked  towards the noise and saw it coming in out of the night sky down towards the woods. At first it looked like a big fireball. As it got closer it changed direction and dipped lower coming in over the park. It was a huge dark colored UFO craft coming in on its side. It was partly on fire across the one side of it. It was really moving fast.

Within seconds he heard it hit the ground. It sounded like a big splat rather than an explosion.  He stood there a minute kind of shocked and kind of frozen in fear.  He said he  thought he  heard some kind of movement coming from the park from the direction of where this thing hit.

 He said he became really terrified and dropped the wood and ran to his truck.  He told us the first thing he thought of was that no one knew where he was  and realized if he did not get out of there he may never be seen again.

His truck  would not start . He kept trying until  it finally turned over.  He told us he floored it down the  road . He also said  he heard yelling or screaming coming from the park..

The man was terrified yet afraid to call the police or tell anyone as he was also afraid he would get in to trouble for what he was doing in the park. After he drove  home he locked up his cabin and stayed awake all night with his  shotgun at his side.  He told us that just in case whatever was hollering in that woods found its way to his cabin he wanted to be ready. 

The man  told us that he watched  from, his cabin windows  during that night  as trucks, jeeps and fire trucks flooded the area.. He thinks he heard a few helicopters fly over too.

He said the next day he tried to walk his old hound down the road close to where all this activity was going on only to be told to go home and stay there until further notice by men in what appeared to be orange hazard suits. He did not know if the phones were knocked out as he did not have one at the time but did say his truck would not start easily for days after the incident.

Finally after about a week passed the people, trucks and helicopters were gone and the park seemed to stand barren and silent. 

 He finally ventured down the road and peered into the park. He told us the park seemed dusted of even dirt after that happened. It was like they came in and took every twig and log and leaf that was lying around in the woods. It was as if the whole place had been swept and a false fake wooded area was left behind.

 The man told us the place now frightened  him and he had not been back to the park since that night.

After writing the article about  this man and the night of the UFO  crash I also stopped thinking about that incident in South haven Park .  I knew something incredible happened however  besides the local newspaper coverage  at the time I really only talked to that man about  the event. 

During this past Holiday season I met  the  new wife of an old friend of mine  at a Christmas party.  

During the party the subject of the local Fire houses in our area came up. The people at the party were discussing the costs of building a new firehouse in their community. The conversation consisted of those who wanted a new large firehouse and those who thought the old ones were working out well and did not need to be replaced. 

During this conversation the new wife of my friend attacked the Fire districts in her area.  She  said that after their actions  when the UFO  crashed  in the park near her home  she wanted nothing to do with them. 

  I listened with care as she told the group at the party  that she saw the craft with her own eyes  cross the sky  heading towards the park.  She told us shes had just returned from shopping in town and was  bringing in dishes and pies from Thanks giving  with the help of her two teenage sons when they all heard a loud  swishing sound  . They looked  towards the sound and saw a large oval egg shaped object  on fire quickly cross the sky heading towards  South Haven Park. She said that she knew it was not an airplane or anything she had seen before.  She called the police who told her they already had  been alerted by other callers. 

She told us that she turned on the local radio station  who were discussing that they too were receiving calls from people all over the area who also witnessed this  thing on fire heading towards the park. She  said that she and her sons listened for hours to the sirens of police and fire equipment as they  headed towards the direction of  South Haven Park. 

The local people in the area waited patiently to see what the news would report on this strange event. She too recalls the first reports describing the event as that of a UFO or  strange unidentified object crashing  in the woods in the park. She also remembers how the days followed with a changing slant on the crash until those who were trying to tell the world what they had seen recoiled as they were made to feel  foolish and ridiculed for speaking out.  

This woman told us that she went to her local fire house station to talk to a officer that happened to be a lifelong friend of hers to find out what was going on?   She told me that her long time friend treated her as if she was a complete stranger and denied he or his fire house had anything to do with any event that occurred in South Haven Park.   She took her friend to task by telling him she had seen the thing with her own eyes and knew he was lying to her. She was stunned when his reaction was to demand she leave the firehouse and not return. She has not seen her lifelong friend since.

I  knew this was the truth as I watched a local TV newscaster  try to interview the surrounding fire districts  shortly after this event took place and remember how oddly the firemen reacted to the interview and how overly insistent they were that they were never at the park or knew anything about a crash.

I realized that I now had two people who did not know each other from that area tell me  nearly the same thing about this incident. I also knew that there were many other people in that area who witnessed whatever it was fall or crash in the South Haven Park. 

It  is obvious  the truth of this event will never be told . I find it incredible how easy it was to simply tell all the people who saw this event with their own eyes that it was nothing - and get away with it. 

We are so backwards with this type of thing that  simply laughing at those who  see or encounter these incredulous events are quickly silenced by a bit of humiliation.  I often wonder what would have happened  if  the  town full of witnesses united and protested in group with TV cameras blasting in front of the local police station for the truth about what crashed in that park that night.

I think about the strange man living out in his lonely  cabin unwilling to share how he watched this craft crash right in front of him..  I wonder how many  people all over the world  have had  similar  sightings  and similar reasons that  prevent them from reporting incredible encounters? I have to wonder what would happen if all those people came forward in mass and refused the ridicule and demanded action ?  I think we would be living in a very different world is we handled things in a smarter manner.  I assure you we would be far more advanced on many levels instead of stuck in the dark ages of the unknown as it now stands.

I guess we are creatures of our own habits traditions and needs.  We have been trained to behave as we do when things unknown are reported. We willingly reject the event as it is a easy way to make it all go away. Add a UFO crashing over the holiday season when people are caught up in hectic preparation for the holiday Thanksgiving  - Christmas traditions  and you have  a perfect time for something like a UFO crash  to be kicked under the carpet.

After revisiting this crash of something on fire and crashing in the South Haven Park . I  can only wonder how many others clearly watched  that craft  burn through the sky and crash that November night in 92?

For now  be careful out there, you never know what you may see while stealing wood  or bringing in packages from your car!

MUFON report Argentina,Crop.jpg
Long Description of Sighting Report I was driving the route 101 of Mendoza, Argentina, with

2 friends, near a town called Pareditas (8 miles away), the moon was rising so we stopped to

take some pictures of it. I took 4 or 5 pictures and then we get back on the road. When we

arrived home, we saw a green shape almost the size of the moon, near it, in the first

photograph. It was very noticeable, and with good quality, a shadow slashing the green bulbs in

halfs. In all the pictures the bulb appears in different positions. We couldnt find any

explanation for that, not a flearing, a reflection or object created from the human beeing

could show such colors and shape, over a huge field were no one lives.

I didnt contact anyone else about this, and don´t know exactly what to do as I believe my

pictures are a valuable source of information to share with the world.

Looking forward for a response, so i can send you the photographs.

Get ready for a 'global Katrina': Biggest ever solar storm could cause power cuts which last for MONTHS

  • Earth is overdue a solar storm as the sun enters its most active period
The world is overdue a ferocious 'space storm' that could knock out communications satellites, ground aircraft and trigger blackouts - causing hundreds of billions of pounds of damage, scientists say.
Astronomers today warned that mankind is now more vulnerable to a major solar storm than at any time in history - and that the planet should prepare for a global Katrina-style disaster.
A massive eruption of the sun would save waves of radiation and charged particles to Earth, damaging the satellite systems used for synchronising computers, airline navigation and phone networks.
Imminent: The world got a taster of the sun's explosive power last week with the strongest solar eruption in five years sent a torrent of charged plasma hurtling towards the world. Scientists believe we are overdue a ferocious solar storm

If the storm is powerful enough it could even crash stock markets and cause power cuts that last weeks or months, experts told the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
The chances of a disruption from space are getting stronger because the sun is entering the most active period of its 11 to 12-year natural cycle.
The world got a taster of the sun's explosive power last week when the strongest solar eruption in five years sent a torrent of charged plasma hurtling towards the world at 580 miles per second.

The storm created spectacular aurorae and disrupted radio communications.
Professor Sir John Beddington, the government's chief scientific adviser, said: 'The issue of space weather has got to be taken seriously. We've had a relatively quiet period of space weather - but we can't expect that quiet period to continue.
'At the same time over that period the potential vulnerability of our systems has increased dramatically, whether it is the smart grid in our electricity systems or the ubiquitous use of GPS in just about everything we use these days.
'The situation has changed. We need to be thinking about the ability both to categorise and explain and give early warning when particular types of space weather are likely to occur.'

Solar storms are caused by massive explosions on the sun.
The explosions release waves of X-rays and ultraviolet radiation which smash into the Earth within minutes, disrupting radio signals and damaging the electronics of satellites.
They are followed ten to 20 minutes later by a burst of energetic particles which cause even more havoc with satellites - and then 15 to 30 hours later by supercharged plasma which collides with Earth's magnetic field.
The plasma create the aurora - or Northern Lights - and can induce electrical currents in power lines and cables.
Jane Lubchenco, head of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, said: 'This is not a matter of if, it is simply a matter of when and how big.
'The last time we had a maximum in the solar cycle, about 10 years ago, the world was a very different place. Cell phones are now ubiquitous; they were certainly around  but we didn't rely on them for so many different things.
'Many things that we take for granted today are so much more prone to the process of space weather than was the case in the last solar maximum.'
Communications satellites would be knocked out by a solar storm, causing widespread chaos on Earth and hundreds of billions of pounds of damage
The sun goes through a regular activity cycle about 11 years long on average. The last solar maximum occurred in 2001. Its latest minimum was particularly weak and long lasting.
Space storms are not new. The first major solar flare was recorded by British astronomer Richard Carrington in 1859.
Other solar geomagnetic storms have been observed in recent decades. One huge solar flare in 1972 cut off long-distance telephone communication in the mid-western state of Illinois, Nasa said.
Another similar flare in 1989 'provoked geomagnetic storms that disrupted electric power transmission' and caused blackouts across the Canadian province of Quebec, the U.S. space agency said.


It's thunder thighs: Newest member of the dinosaurs is discovered in Utah

Stalking and terrorising its pray, this computer generated image shows the newest member of the dinosaurs.
Named the Brontomerus Mcintoshi, the creature has been given the nickname 'thunder thighs' because of its huge legs and the translation of its name.
Remains of the creature were discovered recently in the American state of Utah by a team of British and American scientists.
Beast: The Brontomerus Mcintoshi is the newest member of the dinosaurs after bones, including a shoulder blade and pelvis, were discovered in Utah
