UFO Spotted in Background of NBC Nightly News Segment - Coast to Coast AM
Sun, 09 Aug 2020 16:52:19 GMT
Tim Binnall notes the presence and possible explanation for the passage of an odd aerial object in a deadly serious and important tv segment. Luis Burgos provides another recent event in Argentina: Strange Object Crosses the Skies of La Pampa; Captured by Security Cams. It's interesting that the camera began "panning" to follow the course of the apparent object across the sky. Spain: A "UFO" over Solana de los Barros tells of a short 1975 "flap" whose witnesses "kept the events to themselves to preserve their respectability." But not for long; the newspaper picturing the late July story is dated August 5th. And Nick Redfern tells us about The Night a UFO Crashed - or Didn't. Crediting Andy Roberts, whose book on "The Welsh Roswell" Nick recommends, Redfern sketches the background and basic uncontested facts about the event. (WM)

Skinwalker Accounts from the Navajo Rez - Phantoms and Monsters
Sun, 09 Aug 2020 16:52:18 GMT
This first set of stories comes from a young man growing up on the Navajo reservation in Arizona. One story involves a skinwalker running alongside a car; another is about a shapeshifting coyote. Skinwalker Appears Twice in Canyon de Chelly, Arizona describes what happens if we look these abominations in the eye and let them know we see them. Our final group of tales deals with Scary 'Skinwalker' Encounters in Arizona & Utah. The most frightening encounters are the ones where we see the least but learn the most. Suddenly, we're not so bummed about cancelled campouts and delayed road trips. (CM)

Flying on an Alien's Back Across the Middle Kingdom - Bizarre and Grotesque
Sun, 09 Aug 2020 16:52:17 GMT
Many UFO-related encounters, especially of the distant kind, produce enthusiasm and interest in the beholder. But some generate absolute astonishment, confusion, and other less-positive emotions. What "is possibly the first abduction story to come out of contemporary China" will also likely rank as one of the strangest. Tristan Shaw brings this ill-known and uber-puzzling account to us. Brent Swancer offers The Truly Bizarre Tale of the Hunter and the Alien, which like the Chinese account has not avoided the suggestion of "hoax." And what to make of witness reports When Aliens and Strange Creatures Materialize and Dematerialize? Nick Redfern recounts cases familiar and otherwise, all pretty stupefying. (WM)

Won't Get Fooled Again (?) - Herald Tribune
Sat, 08 Aug 2020 16:55:04 GMT
Billy Cox detects "a hunger for empiricism" in the current culture exemplified in the Ravi Kopparapu/Jacob Haqq-Misra Scientific American article's reasoned and reasonable case for studying UFOs/UAPs. Billy cites historical precedent for his position, believing the present attitude generally inclines towards taking these phenomena seriously. Yes and Maybe Somewhat No for UFO respectability, implies David Halperin. Weighing in upon The New York Times and the UFO - Leslie Kean, Ralph Blumenthal, Harry Reid, David critiques the current major media article exemplifying/helping create the changed situation. He suggests "UFO believers" Kean and Blumenthal to a certain extent have made "the nation's classic 'newspaper of record' part of that crusade." In the shadow of these events, Kevin Randle's interview spotlights Matt Tiller and the SCU. Tiller edits the Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies' SCU Review, and discussion centers around the SCU's informational efforts, analysis of the "Ubatuba fragments," MUFON and To The Stars...Academy of Arts & Science. About TTSA Tiller claims "They have a lot of great stuff ready to roll, and for one reason or another, they are told to stop." This might explain the way information has been emanating from that organization, but Tiller is not at liberty to specify the evidentiary basis for that quote. (WM)

Crop Circle Created Around Tree - Coast to Coast AM
Sat, 08 Aug 2020 16:55:03 GMT
It appeared last Monday in a field near the community of Devizes in the UK. The design consists of a large circle surrounded by a ring that features four smaller spheres...with a tree in the middle. It may be the fist of its kind. On a more mundane note, companies looking to promote their products have carved out Commercial Crop Circles Created in Kansas and New York. One consists of elaborate artwork that extols the virtues of a CBD brand, the other consists of the logo of a clothing brand embossed into a field. We've seen it before with Bigfoot and Nessie and UFOs--the amazing marketing power of the paranormal! (PH)

Aliens at Loch Ness? A Controversy-Filled Case - Mysterious Universe
Sat, 08 Aug 2020 16:55:02 GMT
Nick Redfern critiques the 1971 Jan-Ove Sundberg CEIII from several angles. The 1932 Lieutenant McP Fordyce encounter reference makes the whole article fun. "Interplanetary Travel By Men From Venus" - Alleged Aliens and A Government Agency is interesting and a trifle mysterious. It underscores Nick's consistent contention that the FBI was interested in UFO contactees of the '50s and '60s for reasons other than supposed ET connections. Nick extends this theme to the present, admonishing UFO Researchers: If There's a "Secret File" on You, It's Because of Your Politics. Not Aliens. (WM)

The Truth is out There, We Hope: UFOs are with Us Whether We Like it or Not - The Washington Times
Fri, 07 Aug 2020 16:58:20 GMT
With apparently extremely grudging acceptance the conservative Washington Times Editorial Board says it's time for all Americans to take UFOs seriously. This due to the "UFO threat" potential and seeming Department of Defense flexibility with information. Alejandro Rojas' TTSA Advisor Chris Mellon Tells CNN Potential UFO Crashes Should be Taken Seriously features that Michael Smerconish interview and makes "two crucial points" about Mellon's crash retrieval comments. Rojas supports his contentions with a link to Dr. Eric Davis: Investigating and Experiencing the Paranormal - April 30, 2019. This interview shows the status of Dr. Davis' knowledge of UFO crash retrievals at least at that time. This may help evaluate how soundly based is "evidence" for that most significant aspect of the current UFO story. The actual Davis dialogue begins at almost 26 minutes into the podcast. (A transcript possesses errors at some of the more important parts of the audio.) With this background, evaluate Seth Shostak's UFOs: Hoping for the Proof. A predictable opinion piece from someone whose often cash-strapped organization's avowed purpose would be compromised were UFOs actually to be proven ET. (WM)

Mystery as Bizarre 15ft Creature Washes Up on Beach in Merseyside - Daily Mail
Fri, 07 Aug 2020 16:58:19 GMT
"My favourite theory is that it was a woolly mammoth or a crash-landed alien," says one observer of a very strange, decomposing critter found on the shoreline at Liverpool. Whatever it was, it's nonetheless a conundrum which perhaps the marine biologists at the city's university can solve. Update: Karl Shuker has identified the remains as those of a baleen whale. Meanwhile, up in bonny Scotland, Glasgow Boy gives us his Loch Ness Trip Report July 2020. Though Nessie remained camera shy during loch lockdown, as GB's trailcams attest, there was still plenty to see and do in the local area. And finally, Malcolm muses about Lost 20th Century Sea Serpents, as reported in the Singapore press of long ago. (LP)

UFO Mass Sighting Event in Finland 1966 - Metaphysical Articles
Fri, 07 Aug 2020 16:58:18 GMT
UFO encounters often leave lasting impacts upon individuals. Mark Russell Bell proffers a brief and lesser-known Finnish "flap" that left its witnesses perplexed, angry, and--maybe--dead. Skeptical Nigel Watson differs with Irena McCammon Scott's speculations in Inside the Lightning Ball: Scientific Study of Lifelong UFO Experiencers. Yet even in this review, Dr. Scott's first-hand collisions with the Unknown are engrossing. The matter of really close meetups with aliens also appears in Hakan Blomqvist's "They Have Hidden Behind the Extraterrestrial Myth". Taking his cue from a John Keel letter, Blomqvist thinks "earth-based and undiscovered aliens" would pose "an even greater enigma than extraterrestrial visitors." Blomqvist's article about possible Terran ufonauts features sources published by Anomalist Books. And Keel himself is the recipient of A Letter from Lynn Catoe, January 19, 1968. It concerns a troubled investigator who thought most other UFO researchers were really "'extraterrestrials' or 'devils'," one of whom (or which?) claimed to be his father. (WM)

Elon Musk Irks Egyptian Officials by Suggesting Aliens Built the Pyramids - Coast to Coast AM
Thu, 06 Aug 2020 17:01:02 GMT
Here's one of the strangest headlines we've seen starring SpaceX founder Musk. Tim Binnall provides the comment and its aftermath, but why one of today's smarter brains made that statement is mysterious. It's preparation for viewing Alex Tsakiris' productions about Bruce Fenton on UFO/ET Contact 780,000 Years Ago. Tsakiris, alternate archaeological theorist Fenton, and "The Snake Brothers" discuss some of the science behind Fenton's "crystal ship" destruction construction speculation. A "movie project episode" from Tsakiris explains what circumstances led to Fenton's theory of how doings in the unbelievably ancient past formed present Homo sapiens. Clearly Fenton has latched onto the current upheavals in palaeoanthroplogy stemming from dating controversies and genetic research. A more finite example of grandiose claims is a Biblical Archaeology Review piece suggesting a 3,000-year-old Head May be Face of God. Owen Jarus tells why the Institute of Archaeology at Hebrew University chief thinks a two-inch-tall clay head depicts Yahweh, and why others believe Yosef "Garfinkel's article is riddled with factual inaccuracies and a flawed methodological approach" (they disagree).

A Ghost Is the Perfect Quarantine Sex Partner - The Cut
Thu, 06 Aug 2020 17:01:01 GMT
Given the events and circumstances of this year it's not surprising that people are finding innovative ways to get jiggy with one another that don't require hazmat suits or glory holes (as suggested by an official Canadian health agency recently). If you're lucky enough to have an accommodating spook nearby, perhaps pour them a glass of cabernet and initiate an automatic writing session to take your relationship to the next level--haunting with benefits. No ghostly partner available? No worries. MIT Scientists Develop a Device to Manipulate Dreams, and they're achieving impressive results so far. In the most basic terms, the device catches us before we reach REM sleep, whispers sweet nothings in our ears, and influences our upcoming dreams. Sounds slightly nefarious and potentially embarrassing, albeit effective. Then again, we usually know how to find all the good haunted houses. Sweet (private) dreams folks. (CM)

On The Trail of the AATIP UFO Powerpoint Slide - The Black Vault
Thu, 06 Aug 2020 17:01:00 GMT
Should much weight should be put on the wording, or wording changes, and by whom, in Powerpoint slides? Probably so, and John Greenewald at least has etched the problem in sharper relief. He's also noted another significant correction to the recent New York Times story. Greenewald sets the slide controversy in the context of "bizarre" 2020's so-far News overburden. To this Jason Colavito adds that President Donald Trump Says He'll Be "Totally Guided" by "UFO Expert" Lou Dobbs. One does not know how to take this information and whether its historical context is an indicator of political choices. (WM)

The Time Ivan T. Sanderson Had a Time Slip Into Another Dimension - Mysterious Universe
Wed, 05 Aug 2020 17:04:24 GMT
Brent Swancer takes us for a meander down the darker side of reality, where dimensions intersect and our minds struggle to hold on as the world warps around us. This first tale comes from a highly respected cryptozoologist on a research grant with his wife in Haiti. Except for that time they found themselves in 15th century Paris together. And then they weren't. Not so idyllic is A Bizarre Case of a Doorway to Another World in the Wilderness. A strange swirling fog bank lures a witness into a strange and menacing world reminiscent of an intro to a Stephen King movie. We close with The Bizarre Wilderness Vanishing of Aaron Hedges, where an experienced outdoorsman wanders off an established path, gradually unburdens himself of boots and backpack, and is never heard from again. All three of these reports kind of make us want to tie one end of a rope around our waist and the other end to our vehicle before taking even the shortest stroll into the woods. (CM)

Long Beach Sighting??? Zooms By At Lightning Speed - TMZ
Wed, 05 Aug 2020 17:04:23 GMT
The rather excited headline and coarse language of the videographers may be influenced by the recent New York Times article, which TMZ expressly notes with a concluding suggestion of imminent Disclosure. But it's not "just California" that's reporting perplexing observations, as Magdalene Dalziel reports about Mysterious UFOs Spotted in the Skies above Edinburgh. Scottish observers treated the sky show with humor, possibly due to the "Lights-In-The-Sky" having less material substance than the Long Beach stuff. Turns out that there's an explanation for the phenomena that's also reflective of the news. And with Venezuela: A UFO Mothership Sighting? the witness, Julio Cesar Colmenares, has a rather more mystical and integrated interpretation. (WM)

John Greenewald Interview - A Different Perspective
Wed, 05 Aug 2020 17:04:22 GMT
A "Randlefest" begins with a two-part dialogue with FOIAmaster John Greenewald, on current issues ufological. AATIP and MUFON figure heavily; interestingly, Greenewald is a little more tolerant, perhaps pragmatic, than others regarding that controversial Mutual UFO Network 2017 Symposium speaker roster. Jan Harzan and the Decline of MUFON is a concise summary of problems in the organization's history regarding many forms of discrimination. With Too Young to Be Believed: The White Sands Sightings Kevin makes a strong point against yet another kind of discrimination that makes no sense. And in Awakening Sleeping Dogs - Or Billy Meier Kevin asks for help finding a Wendelle Stevens book with an early publication date. (WM)

Reid Says UFOs Not Necessarily from Other Worlds - Mystery Wire
Tue, 04 Aug 2020 17:06:48 GMT
George Knapp gives the timeline and background to the current kerfuffle between the former Senate Majority Leader and The New York Times over remarks ascribed to Reid in The Gray Lady's latest UFO expose. What was originally credited to Reid seems counter to his historical comments on the possibility of ET crash retrievals--which of course could be why NYT reporters Ralph Blumenthal and Leslie Kean took especial notice. As Knapp notes, the two "say they still stand by the story and the quote from Reid." Paul Seaburn offers opinions on the matter as The New York Times Media-splains Recent UFO Materials Announcement. A good government document or two would be a great help in sorting some of this stuff. Nick Redfern tells us where we can find some in The Vault: Taking a Look at Files on Unexplained Phenomena. Many of these FBI files concern certain UFO-related personalities. And "UFO-people" stuff that's available but not yet through the FBI's Vault gets mention in Nick's Government Files and the Paranormal: Documents You May Not Know About. (WM)

Top States for Bigfoot Sightings Revealed - Coast to Coast AM
Tue, 04 Aug 2020 17:06:47 GMT
A new study has been released just in time to plan next year's road trip. Developed by the website Satellite Internet, the report is based on the BFRO database and cross referenced by state population. Those of you near Portland, Maine, can indulge before then with the recently acquired exhibit “Sasquatch Revealed 2020″ at the International Cryptozoology Museum. These artifacts have been displayed at 11 different museums over the past 16 years.  Now the only way to see them is to mask up, wash your hands and head to the ICM. Remember to social distance because even Bigfoot doesn't want our germs. (CM)

Aliens, Monsters, a Haunted Abbey, and Goblins: All in One Little Village! - Mysterious Universe
Tue, 04 Aug 2020 17:06:46 GMT
With nods to Rich Reynolds and the late John Keel, Nick Redfern presents a case for a "window area" in a little village in north-central England. Estonia and suburban Chicago are both backdrops for A Strange and Sinister Encounter with "Frog People". This second Redfern contribution is as weird and inexplicable as what surrounded Ranton, Staffordshire. Enter Brent Swancer with A Strange UFO Encounter at Trinidade [sic] Island. The Trindade UFO photography constitutes one of the iconic, and not unexpectedly controversial, instances of UFO imagery. No photos necessary in Brent's Weird Accounts of Mysterious Flying Trains; the witness accounts are graphic enough to paint the picture. Of course, photographs would have helped support these impossible stories. (WM)

The Night a Mysterious Drone Swarm Descended On Palo Verde Nuclear Power Plant - The War Zone
Mon, 03 Aug 2020 17:08:57 GMT
The War Zone "drones as possible UFOs" articles have consistently caught our attention, but this chilling Tyler Rogoway and Joseph Trevithick article totally fixated it. What they term "a much less glamorous, more numerous, and arguably far more pressing threat" than "strange unidentified craft with unexplainable capabilities" is well-detailed in this report. Note also the apparently insufficient and even "naive" response to such threats. Supporting sources show other aspects of the drone menace, including Jared Keller's CENTCOM Chief: US Troops Can't Keep up with the Flood of Cheap Drones Downrange for limited strikes and Trevithick's own Turkey Now Has Swarming Suicide Drones It Could Export which has application to a potential terrorist strike on a nuclear facility. And Brett Tingley and The War Zone Staff provide background useful both to the historic drone problem and its recent efflorescence in Newly Released FAA Documents Give Unprecedented Look Into Colorado Drone Swarm Mystery.

Trump's New Favorite COVID Doctor Believes in Alien DNA, Demon Sperm, and Hydroxychloroquine - Richard Dawkins Foundatio...
Mon, 03 Aug 2020 17:08:56 GMT
Even now, with burbles of respectability issuing from such bastions as Scientific American, the US Navy, and, famously and now controversially The New York Times, skeptics can still lump possible ET life and UFOs in with all sorts of weirdness. The Dawkins site directs to Will Sommer's Daily Beast expose of Stella Immanuel with a nearly hour-long video of Immanuel on "Deliverance from Spirit Husbands and Spirit Wives." Jason Colavito cannot resist riding that Sommer post, penning Trump's "Alien DNA" Doctor; Plus: NY Times Reporters Get Defensive Over UFOs. Thankfully, Paul Seaburn turns the tables on the subject in his lighter UFOs, Politics and Religion--Only in Texas. Along the way, Paul makes his usual worthwhile observations upon what passes for intelligence in this world. But things turn decidedly serious again with Nick Redfern's Demonic Phenomena, Government Agencies, and Top Secret Cold War-Era Projects. Nick's delving into the World of Intelligence nearly brings us full circle with Government, Demons, virus weapons, and the like. It's also a good promo for Nick's timely book Final Events and the Secret Government Group on Demonic UFOs and the Afterlife, published by Anomalist Books. (WM)
