More WWII Ghost Planes Sighted Over Derbyshire, England – Mysterious Universe

Locals in England’s heartland have been unsettled by low-flying prop-planes buzzing their cars. Lots of spooky ideas around as to where they come from, but has anyone checked with nearby vintage flying clubs? Apparently not. No such simple explanation seems forthcoming in this account of Haunted Skies: The Ghostly Tale of Flight 401, which looks […]

Johnny Depp Says He Was Attacked By Chupacabra: ‘I Fought with it for Hours’ – Inquisitr

Reporter Kim McLendon makes more than a meal of what seems to be a teasing bit of flippancy from Depp, whose lifestyle is routinely fodder for the tabloids. And sounding equally bizarre, though apparently quite normal, The Guardian tells us that Fictional characters make ‘experiential crossings’ into real life, study finds. If you’ve ever enjoyed […]

What Was Your Original Face on Mars?—Zen and the Prophetic Sublime – The Nightshirt

Why are we attracted to scenes of beauty and destruction? Take for example the Face on Mars, which was apparently recognized by at least two prominent artists long before the Viking Orbiter ever photographed these “ruins,” according to anthropologist Eric Wargo.

Red Bluff: 1960 – Saturday Night Uforia

This long and worthwhile piece by Daniel Ropkin deals with the rather misnamed, as is noted, August 13-14, 1960, event whose core feature was a more than two-hour encounter between two California Highway Patrolmen and a large, football-shaped, highly maneuverable aerial phenomenon.

Great news for those of you who follow every Loch Ness lead: The Dolphin population at Loch Ness has reached record levels which means, since dolphins are considered an indicator species, the environment of the Loch has improved to the point it could support large predators.

The 1966 Westall UFO….er, Balloon Incident? – UFO Conjecture(s)

These offerings recall a sighting we’d discussed yesterday. But Australia and 1966, not Wales and 1977, form the setting for another schoolyard mass sighting of an anomalous object. See whether researcher Keith Basterfield’s suggested explanation satisfies you or not. It certainly raises questions about witness perception. Moving a year forward from 1966, Rich Reynolds then […]

Animal Psi – Paranormalia

Robert McLuhan adds this report to the PSI Encyclopedia regarding what pet owners already know: our four-legged friends (and winged or scaly buddies) often know as much about what we’re thinking as we do ourselves. McLuhan delves into research that is anecdotal (as science insists animal psi is pure fantasy) and reviews Rupert Sheldrake’s Dogs […]

Micah Hanks Interview – The Paracast

Gene does a solo interview with The Graelian Report’s Micah Hanks, and the worthwhile discussion ranges along the outskirts of popular ufology at first, to come “home” to the future of the field itself. Most of the program deals with the history of odd things being reported in earth’s orbit from the early fifties, Hanks […]

Meteor or Robot? – Fortean Ireland

This site is a true “Miscellany of the Unusual,” lately reporting a variety of older oddities from the Emerald Isle. This case, from January 18, 1955, sounds much like different “takes” on a natural phenomenon. The same can’t be said of The Extraordinary Story of the Entire Class Who Claimed to have Spotted a 40ft-long […]
