The Tunguska Incident – A Case Study
The Tunguska Incident – A Case Study
Written byMarcus Lowth Estimated Reading Time:21minutes
When we think of “cataclysmic events” most of us will think of an event long ago in the distant past. One that perhaps shaped the world that we know today. Or some of us might think of a disastrous end-of-the-world type of scenario still to come. Perhaps in our lifetime. Hopefully not. The fact is, however, as little as slightly over a century ago, an event in the upper-most regions of Tunguska is considered by many to be as close as we in “the modern world” have come to witnessing such an event.
Had what many believe to be a comet or meteorite exploded a little more west and south of its location, or had it occurred just several hours later, the blast would likely have occurred near or directly over Moscow, for example. Needless to say, the loss of life would have likely been in the millions. As it happens, there are no known recorded deaths as a direct result of the incident. Of course, whether any further-reaching deaths occurred in later months and years is perhaps open to debate.
As, it would seem, is whether it was a meteor at all. Although that is the generally accepted theory, there is no solid inescapable truth to the claims. Several researchers over the decades have quietly suggested that the explosion over Tunguska was not a meteor, but of something more “nuts-and-bolts”. Possibly an alien craft. One that hadn’t purposely ventured to Earth but was in distress and ultimately exploded several miles up in the atmosphere before it could land. Or, according to some even more outlandish theories, an ancient alien defense weapon that intentionally crippled an approaching vehicle.
We will examine all of these, from the plausible to the bizarre. Just what did happen over Tunguska in 1908?
The Blast! – 7 am, 30th June, Tunguska, 1908
Although there are no known victims of the explosion that morning at a little after 7 am on 30th June 1908, those that lived nearest to the unpopulated area, the nearest being around forty miles away, could not only hear the blast and see the bright glow immediately, they could feel the intense heat also. One such farmer, Sergei Semenov, would claim that a “huge ball of fire” filled the sky. Furthermore, despite his distance, a “shock wave” from the blast knocked him clean off his feet. When he regained consciousness a short time later he would recall that the heat in the air was so hot he had to immediately go inside.
Even those who were hundreds of miles away could clearly see the “pillar of fire” in the skies as well as the “gusts of winds” that were, in fact, the shock waves from the blast. Residents in these locations would even report their windows shaking and rattling as if there was a powerful earthquake in progress. Seismic equipment as far away as the United Kingdom would register the impact. Just to demonstrate how powerful the blast was, perhaps we should consider the overall findings of the world’s scientists of the time. They would conclude that shock waves from the impact had gone around the world twice before losing momentum.
When investigators would finally manage to inspect the damage, they would find that over 770 square miles of thick forest trees had been flattened completely. Whatever the cause of the explosion was, theories, as we shall see, would suggest it occurred somewhere between three and six miles above the surface of the ground. It was the burst of air and energy that would cause the forest devastation rather than a direct impact.
Below is archive footage.
Midnight Light “So Brilliant One Could Read The Minutest Lettering!”
In the days that followed the events, the skies throughout Asia, Russia, and even as far away as Europe, remained “aglow”. Writing in the ‘Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society’ in June 1934, F.J.W. Whipple would tell of reports from Sweden of the night in question in 1908, of the skies at night being almost as bright as the day. In fact, between 30th June until 2nd July “very good photographs could be taken at midnight” such was the brightness. The report would further describe the night-time cloud over these three nights as “sometimes snow-white, sometimes golden”. Another Swedish witness would state that the light was “so brilliant one could read the minutest lettering” within its glow. Further still, a Mr. W.C. Hart from Scotland, also claimed to have captured a photograph of Dornoch Cathedral at midnight of 2nd July.
That the event was unlike anything seen by the generation of the time was certainly obvious to most. The more details and witness statements that would emerge of the incident, the more it was increasingly likely that no generations since antiquity had witnessed such an event. One that was apparently narrowly cataclysmic. In a time before the Internet, modern technology, or even satellite, and so consequently investigations and the filtering of the results of those investigations to various locations around the world would take decades. Add to this the two world wars that obviously hindered any realistic investigations into the incident. And then, following the start of the Cold War between the Soviet Union and the West for the majority of the second half of the twentieth century, any information was almost always subject to paranoid scrutiny on both sides of the Iron Curtain.
It is easy to see why areas of the incident remain murky.
Awakened By “Whistling And Strong Winds!”
While the witness statements by Sergei Semenov were key into understanding the ferocious atmosphere in the immediate aftermath of the incident, they are not the only ones. Nor indeed the earliest retrieved by investigators.
For example, I.M. Suslov would detail the account of Chuchan of the nearby Shanyagir tribe. Chuchan would state that he and his brother were asleep in their hut along the river bank when a “whistling and strong wind” woke each of them at the same time. Each of them could feel a “shove” by an invisible hand, one so hard, Chuchan “fell into the fire”. They could hear chaotic noise from outside and the two young boys became extremely scared and upset. They gathered their sleeping bags and prepared to leave their hut. Then, however, “the thunder struck. This was the first thunder”.
Suddenly “the Earth began to move and rock” and a blast of wind so strong it completely knocked over their hut. Chuchan was “pushed down (trapped)” by sticks” of the hut but he was able to see what was happening. From above him “trees were falling, the branches were on fire”. The sky was so bright it was “as if there was a second Sun”. Then, the “second thunder clap” came. Even though the morning was sunny and there was no rain falling.
While the two brothers struggled to free themselves of the remains of the ruined hut, they would continue to take in the bizarre events unfolding around them.
Evidence Of Several Large Explosions?
After having already heard two distinct and loud “thunder claps” – loud enough to scare the two boys and physically knock them down with the wind-like aftershock – a third such boom sounded through the skies above. Just before this third thunder clap, a flash was clearly visible overhead, this time “in a different place” to the first one. A moment following the thunder, another sudden blast of wind forced them from their feet and ripped up trees as if they were blades of grass.
As they were still recovering, another flash appeared above, followed by another thunder clap, although not as loud as before. Chuchan claimed a fifth thunder strike would sound out shortly after, but this one was “somewhere far away. Where the Sun goes to sleep”.
If Chuchan’s account is genuine and accurate, then there is evidence of several different explosions taking place. Explosions that would each send powerful shockwaves out in all directions, despite their seemingly being a considerable distance away from the epicenter of the blast. While this could most certainly match a meteorite (certainly one exploding in midair) it all of a sudden opens the door to other, perhaps more outlandish, but no less intriguing and even relevant theories.
The “Bright Bluish-White Heavenly Body” Over Karelinski Two Weeks Earlier!
On the morning of the 17th June 1908, almost two weeks before the Tunguska event, according to several local newspaper reports from July of that year, strange activity was recorded near the region. According to “peasants” in the village of Karelinksi, a “bright bluish-white heavenly body”, so bright it was impossible to look at, descended downwards from above. They would describe the object as the shape of a “pipe” or a cigar. It was visible for around ten minutes before it suddenly turned into strange black smoke. At roughly the same time a “knocking” sound was heard, similar to military fire.
Following this relative peaceful display, the ground and buildings suddenly shook, and strange flames and shapes appeared in the sky. Perhaps interestingly, the author of the report would state on the night in question, they too heard sounds akin to an “artillery barrage”. What’s more, there were at least ten of these “rounds” and they appeared to have regularly timed intervals. Such details would not suggest a natural phenomenon.
What does this suggest, then? Surely something more than a “natural” cosmic incident? Or might the rattle of gunfire have been a top-secret response to a meteorite? If so, it would suggest technology far ahead of what the times says was available. And it is surely unlikely that such a technology would have been in Soviet (or any country’s) hands at that point in time. What’s more, there were corroborating sightings from another nearby village.
“Strange Underground Rattles” In-Between Artillery Fire Like “Dozens Of Trains!”
Another newspaper report around the same time featured a strange sighting in the village of Kezhemskoe on the same date and time. A sudden and strange wind disturbed the residents of the village at a little before 7:45 am. As soon as the wind came through, a “thump” was heard which was followed by shaking of the buildings as though they were “hit by a large log or heavy rock”. What is interesting here, is that descriptions of the event were similar to those given by Chuchan about the Tunguska event two weeks later. Residents would report that there were several “thumps” each followed by a strong wind.
However, by far the strangest detail of the events of the 17th June were reports of “strange underground rattles” in-between the thumping noises. Furthermore, these sounds were described as like a “railway upon which dozens of trains are traveling at the same time”. Even more eyebrow-raising are the claims that following these “rattles” was the distinct noise of artillery fire. Each round separated by equal intervals, just like the descriptions given by those near the village of Karelinksi.
After several minutes, the noise and winds ceased. However, in the sky towards the north, a large grey-black cloud hovered in the otherwise clear sky. By around 3 pm that afternoon, the cloud finally began to disperse.
We will return to the notion of some kind of “armed response” a little later. If the theories that prompt that return are even partially true, it could make the incidents of 17th June 1908 – thirteen days before the Tunguska incident – quietly important.
Initial Expeditions Of Leonid Kulik To The Tunguska Region
The ruin left behind following the incident was beyond extensive. Many trees were flattening. Others snapped as if they were nothing more than matchsticks. Huge chunks of earth had been thrown upwards and scattered far and wide. For a report for the Soviet Academy of Science in 1928, Leonid Kulik would write, “…the whole area bears evidence of an immense catastrophe”.
Kulik would lead the first expedition to the area in 1921, over a decade after the incident. Nevertheless, it is from his investigations that a great many of the witness testimonies come from. During his first trip to the Tunguska River region, he began to formulate his theories that a “meteorite impact” was the cause of the explosion. He would eventually succeed in persuading the Soviet authorities to fund a more extensive expedition. He claimed that he would likely discover meteoric iron, something that could aid Soviet industry immensely. Whether his claims were genuine or not, he received his desired funding. Beginning in 1927, and lasting for almost ten years, he would conduct extensive research on the incident and the area.
It was much to his surprise, then, that despite this extensive coverage of the terrain, he could find no crater or physical signs of an actual impact. He eventually had to concede that “no evidence presents itself” of a meteorite impact with the Earth. As we will see, it is largely from these findings that the widely accepted theories, still today, that a meteorite or comet entered the planet’s atmosphere that day in June 1908, but rather than impact the ground had, in fact, exploded several miles above the Earth’s surface.
The Ideas Of Alexander Kasantsev – More Facts Hiding As Fiction?
The leading, and consequently, leading theory was that a meteorite, or some other kind of cosmic body, had invaded the Earth’s airspace and subsequently exploded several miles above the planet’s surface. The energy released from this explosion would result in the devastation to a massive area of the Siberian forests. However, at the end of the Second World War, as the Americans dropped atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Nagasaki and Hiroshima, one particular writer instantly made comparisons of the aftermath in those flattened ruins of Japan, and the chaos left behind in Tunguska.
Alexander Kasantsev would investigate the ruins of the two devastated Japanese cities. And he would become more and more convinced that what had happened over Tunguska was not a meteorite, but a nuclear explosion. When he learned that radiation levels were at increased levels for miles and miles around the region, he further believed his speculation was correct.
Kasantsev would further theorize that due to the location being so isolated that the blast was not the result of an intentional nuclear attack. He would ultimately suggest that the Tunguska incident was the result of a nuts-and-bolts spacecraft, using nuclear energy as a means of propulsion, attempting to make an emergency landing but exploding in midair before reaching the ground.
What we should note here is that Kasantsev would put his theory into a fictional story rather than write it as a possible scenario for the Tunguska incident. Since then, his ideas, fictional or otherwise, have taken on a life of their own. Many, including Kasantsev according to some, believed he would face strict opposition to his ideas and so “hid” them within a fictional story. Whether he was hiding fact as fiction is open to debate.
Beyond All Doubt, Tunguska “Was A Nuclear Explosion!”
Many other researchers would follow up on Kasantsev’s ideas with a more serious frame of mind. For example, as the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were researched following their absolute and total destruction, it was noted how the size of the Tunguska devastation was, roughly, thirty times that of either Hiroshima or Nagasaki. Given that we know the deadly amount of payload in each of those bombs, it would make many question whether the Tunguska episode was really “just” a meteorite. One that exploded above the ground, no less, very similar to the science behind the strikes on the unfortunate and ultimately devastated Japanese cities.
In 1966, for example, following a long and in-depth investigation, Russian scientists V.K. Zhuravlev, D.V. Demin, and L.N. Demina would all conclude, beyond any reasonable doubt according to their findings, that the incident over Tunguska in June 1908 was most definitely a nuclear explosion.
Furthermore, they weren’t on their own in their seemingly off-the-mark conclusions.
At around the same time as the Zhuravlev, Demin, Demina investigation and ultimate findings and Russian professor, and a Russian geologist were undertaking their own research. What’s more, although many are dubious, at best, of their findings and investigation, their argument is intriguing at the very least.
The Claims Of Felix Zigel and Alexi Zolotov
Professor Felix Zigel and geologist, Alexi Zolotov would venture out to the apparent “blast zone”. What’s more, their research this area was more or less in the shape of an oval. Furthermore, Zolotov would discover a strange metallic presence in the soil within this blast zone. Ultimately, this would lead Zolotov to suggest that the “explosive material” was encased inside a “non-explosive” shell when it exploded. That was, he would argue, because the material was of a nuclear-type and was likely the propulsion system of what was an alien space craft.
Even more intriguing, Zigel would speak to several surviving witnesses. Some of these would state their clear recollections of a “fireball” changing direction several times on the morning of the explosion. If such claims are accurate, it certainly isn’t the behavior of a comet or a meteorite. Interestingly or not, Zigel would also obtain a report from the Tatranska Observatory in Poland. It would state that in the early hours of 30th June 1908, only an hour or two before the Tunguska incident, they would track a “fireball” falling from the sky. However, rather than merely fall to the ground or burning up, this strange anomaly would change direction on several occasions.
Zigel and Zolotov would also point to the state of the trees in the area, particularly those in the perceived epicenter of the blast. They would note how only the side of the tree that faces “inwards”, or towards the apparent blast zone, had burn or scorch marks. This is consistent with a sudden and intense surge of heat. This is exactly what happens in a nuclear-type explosion.
Ultimately, their conclusion was that an “artificial construction”, likely an extraterrestrial vehicle, was “being directed towards a landing when it exploded”.
Crude Experimentation With Nuclear-Type Weapons?
We will return to the apparent mysterious detail of “underground rattles” and artillery fire in a moment. One of the theories as to just what this might have been, while possibly unlikely, is mind-bendingly fascinating.
We have examined before the idea that nuclear and advanced weapons existed in the distant past. In fact, the evidence to support such claims is in more abundance than most mainstream historians would have us believe. However, in contemporary times, history tells us such weapons were not available until the 1940s. Maybe we should remember the words of Robert Oppenheimer, the so-called “Father of the Atom Bomb” who when asked if a recent test at the Alamagordo base was, in fact, the first nuclear blast would reply “Yes! In modern times”. What Oppenheimer was clearly saying was such predetermined blasts had taken place in antiquity.
Many ancient Sanskrit writing, for example, speak of such blasts, whose descriptions almost identically match the aftermath of nuclear blasts of the twentieth century. Many of these texts were discovered, relatively speaking, in same region “East” region of the world. While we know the Nazis had a particular interest in these ancient writings, even sending teams to recover them in the years leading up to the Second World War, perhaps the Russians or another mysterious group of “rich investors” made earlier discoveries.
Accelerated Development? Or Access To Ancient Knowledge
Might it be, however unlikely and speculative as the idea is, that the incidents leading up to Tunguska, and even Tunguska itself, was a secret and crude experiment with early nuclear-style weapons? What else could artillery fire and “regular intervals” be but the purposeful discharge of weaponry? And if so, were these theoretical events “just” weapons testing? Or might there have been a legitimate target to aim for?
Might there indeed have been some kind of unidentified aerial presence over the skies of Siberia in the weeks leading up to the Tunguska incident? And might this presence have been met with such brutal and, to the vast majority of the world’s population, weapons unknown to them? Even if this admittedly unlikely scenario was accurate, where did the knowledge, and even the need for such weapons, in 1908 stem from?
Perhaps, as we will look at in a moment, the military, or whoever might have been utilizing such potential nuclear weaponry, didn’t develop it of their own accord. Or discover ancient knowledge and instructions on how to do so. Perhaps they discovered the physical remains of ancient and long-lost weapons. It is certainly possible that such a discovery took place deep in the forests of Siberia. A discovery that many tradespeople and nomadic tribes had known about for hundreds of years. And one from a region with a long history of mysterious activity and encounters.
Connections To The Ominous “Valley Of Death” Legends?
In the surrounding areas of northwestern Yakutia in Siberia near the Tunguska region, is an ominous stretch of land by the name of Uliuiui Cherkechek. Or, when translated, “The Valley of Death”. What’s more, this dark region has a long history of equally dark legends stretching back almost a thousand years. In fact, so entrenched in the local population are the legends of the Valley of Death, that they rarely venture there. And don’t advise the various visitors they get each year that they should either.
According to these legends, the dense forest region was home to an intense battle between two powerful enemies. These most remarkable events go back to around the late-thirteenth or early-fourteenth century. One of the attacks would come from above (from the air), while the other would hurl “balls of fire” from the ground. This is a remarkable detail. Is it some kind allegory for a meteor strike around the early 1300s? There is little geological evidence of such a strike. Or should we take the legend more directly? Is it describing an advanced aerial attack on a facility somewhere on the ground, which then responded with equally advanced weaponry which sound similar to artillery fire?
Remember, the claims around the sightings several weeks before the Tunguska incident mentioned exactly this type of sound. They also mentioned an “underground rattle”. When we further examine some of the remains of the area, these claims also begin, theoretically, to make more sense.
The Strange Copper Cauldrons Of One Of The “Most Dire Regions” Of The World
While the legends have seemingly been around, orally at least, for around 800 years, an expedition from the mid-1850s provides us with some of the most intriguing finds of the area. The explorer, known only as “R. Maak” would discover “gigantic cauldrons made of copper”. However, “only the rim” was visible above the ground. The rest, it would seem, was deep below the earth.
The area itself runs from Bodaibo to Annybar and right the way through to the Laptev Sea. According to histories of ancient times of the area, it was once part of a nomadic trading route. In fact, right up until 1936 there is an account of a trader along this route, Savvinov and his granddaughter, Zina. One night on their way home, they found one of these “reddish arched” buildings and with night drawing in, decided to stay the night. Savvinov, who had stayed in these strange buildings in similar situations before, led Zina “beyond a spiral passageway” and into a “metal chamber”. He told her that “even in the harshest frosts it was as warm as summer in the chambers”.
There are several more “local legends” dating back to the 1930s of both legal and illegal traders of various produce and items in this sparsely populated area. Most revolve around such traders stumbling across these mystery dome-like structures and, given the brutal winter conditions at certain times of year using them as a temporary shelter. However, many of them would soon become intensely ill with nausea and dizziness. So much so, it was often preferable to go back out into the elements rather than sit within these menacing cauldrons.
“Even The Beasts Do Not Go There!”
As the legends of the ill-health inducing cursed copper houses of the deep forests of Siberia took on more and more momentum, many serious-minded but equally intrigued scientists, explorers, and geologists would set out to discover and ultimately rationalize these mysterious structures for themselves. Indeed, to such serious and trained minds, these “cauldrons” were simply a mix of unknown history and local folklore of the bootlegging world of the black market and the discreet trading routes they coveted for themselves.
In 1936, one such geologist would venture into the wilderness of the Valley of Death to do just that. He would take with him an elderly and “wise” native of the area. Along the Olguidakh River, he and the elder would discover just such a structure. Incidentally, according to some researchers, the word Olguidakh translates to “place with a cauldron”.
The unnamed geologist would describe the ruined remains in his report as a “smooth metal hemisphere, reddish in color”. Furthermore, the edges of this structure were so sharp and precise that you could “cut a fingernail” on them. Even more remarkable, these dome-like remains, despite at least half of their structures having sunk underground, had such a large entry into them, that a person could “ride a reindeer under it”. Indeed, a sketch from the expedition shows one of the team doing just that. You can view the sketch above. It is an accurate representation of how these cauldrons would have looked while still visible and above the ground.
They would stay one night in this apparent ancient ruin. However, they were more than familiar with the tales of traders dying suddenly if they stayed too long. Local legend tells all “even the beasts do not go there”.
An Advanced Defensive Alien Battle-Station? And One That Is Still Active?
So, what is the connection between these mysterious structures in the forests of Siberia? Named rather ominously the “Valley of Death”, to boot. According to some claims, particularly the local battle legends, these structures are ancient defensive weapons against aerial invaders. And what’s more, these still active weapons came into action on the morning of 30th June 1908, most likely through nothing more than predetermined programming to do so and turned its attention to whatever came hurtling out of the skies over Tunguska.
It is a bizarre and truly outlandish theory, no doubt. But might there be more truth to the notion that an ancient, yet highly-advanced surface-to-air laser-type defense weapon exists deep in the uninhabitable area of Siberia? A weapon that might have somehow played a part in the still mysterious events over Tunguska over 100 years ago? While such speculation will undoubtedly be dismissed without even the slightest glance by most, there is more weight to it than mere fantasy. Even if it ultimately does turn out to be incorrect.
For example, are these cauldrons responsible for the “balls of fire” of the legendary battle that took place here hundreds of years ago? If so, who are these differnt sides? Are they both “aliens”, or might one be a human settlement, albeit with technology for in advance of what history says they should have had? Does this also explain the apparent rife levels of radiation in the area? Are they so high due to the presence of such powerful weapons? Perhaps above all else, are the remains of these cauldrons still visible today?
Before we delve into that, though, check out the video below. It looks at these suggestions advanced ancient weapons a little further.
The 2013 Visok Expedition
Michale Visok had a long fascination with the legends of the Valley of Death. And what’s more, his initial research in 2013 had identified several strange “circular” patches in the otherwise grim terrain. To obtain an even better view of the area, his team would arrive at the destination using specifically designed parachute-copters. As they drifted over the area, they could target their landings precisely. As well as gain a literal bird’s eye view of the land below. There were indeed several circular areas that looked very promising. They would take their parachute-copters down to the marshy land and begin investigating.
It wasn’t long before they would locate a metallic “anomaly” just a little below the thick swampy waters. They had been in the area for several hours by the time of this apparent breakthrough discovery. The task now was to investigate the object more close-up. And confirm if it was indeed one the legendary “copper cauldrons”. However, within hours of this discovery, Viosk would become suddenly violently ill. He would suffer from extreme nausea and dizziness. Although he wished to stay, the weather was also threatening to take a turn for the worse. They would ultimately decide to vacate the area with a view to returning in the near future.
Incidentally, Viosk would receive an immediate medical check-up upon returning from the expedition. Bizarrely, the doctors could find absolutely nothing wrong with him. He would make a full recovery within hours of leaving the marshy swamplands of the Valley of Death. That he would suffer from the exact same symptoms as the legends assured him is surely more than mere coincidence.
The short video below looks at Viosk’s excursion a little further.
The Claims Of The Tunguska Space Phenomenon Foundation, And Yuri Lavbin
Throughout the 2000s, several theories surfaced, allegedly with “new evidence” as to what happened at Tunguska almost a century earlier. Two particular claims stand out a little more than most of this era. The first, in 2004, would come following an expedition by the Tunguska Space Phenomenon foundation. They would claim to have uncovered “blocks of an extraterrestrial technical device” from the Tunguska region. They would present a small piece of this for analysis at a laboratory in Krasnoyarsk.
The claims made in 2004 would cause a small ripple in the UFO community. Claims five years later by researcher Yuri Lavbin, however, were a little more explosive. He would ultimately claim in 2009, following his own expedition to the area, that a UFO had intentionally collided with an approaching meteor in order to literally “protect our planet from devastation”. Needless to say, many would reject his claims in their entirety.
To support his claims, he would produce ten quartz crystals from the crash site. Furthermore, several of these crystals have strange and precise holes in them so they might be linked. Even stranger, “strange drawings” are present on several of them. Lavbin would claim that we don’t have any “technologies that print such kind of drawings on crystals”. Using the most sophisticated laser machine available, engineers would attempt to replicate the drawings and symbols. However, despite the laser being able to cut through metal, it would barely make a mark on the crystals. Stranger still, and perhaps most intriguing, were the claims of finding “ferrum silicate” – something only found in space.
Lavbin believes these strange quartz crystals were likely part of some advanced space map. This would make a certain amount of sense given what we now know of the memory storing capabilities of crystals.
A Region Of Meteor Strikes And UFO Activity!
We shouldn’t dismiss such claims of an alien craft exploding on Earth while attempting to make an emergency landing. We should also note, however, that several similar, if less devastating impacts have occurred in the region since. As well as Russia in general. And midair explosions of meteorites have occurred on several other occasions. Albeit with less devastating consequences.
Although it took place on the other side of the world over the Curuca River in Brazil, an incident in 1930 is thought to have been another case where a meteor, after exploding in midair, left no evidence of an impact crater at all. In fact, only through modern testing techniques was there confirmation of this event. Until then, it was merely the result of witness statements after the event. And even then, only because of the actions of a Franciscan monk, Fedele d’Alviano. He would take it upon himself to travel to the region and investigate the claims for himself in 1931.
In short, this type of activity, certainly before the Internet, could have happened often in remote parts of the world. Very likely more than we think. And simply gone unreported and, in turn, unnoticed. However, in the modern age, these types of events will almost always be noticed. Just like an incident in February 2013 would prove.
The Chelyabinsk Oblast Incident
In more recent times, in the Ural Mountain near the region of Chelyabinsk Oblast, an asteroid entered the Earth’s atmosphere and was witnessed by hundreds of people screaming across the morning skies of 15th February 2013. The light from the object was even brighter than the rising sun. So much so that people over sixty miles away could see it clearly. Furthermore, particular for those in the region of Chelyabinsk Oblast, a feeling of “intense heat” would accompany the brilliant sighting. The object would ultimately explode around 18 miles above the Earth’s surface. This explosion would result in an even brighter flash and a hot dust-cloud with a radius of over 15 miles. The energy released was around thirty times that of the Hiroshima atomic explosion following World War Two.
The shock waves from the explosion would result in injuries to over 1,500 people. Most of the injuries were the result of cuts from the broken glass of blown-in windows which would shatter instantly. Just to get an appreciation of the damage of this otherwise “minor” incident, over 7,000 buildings across six cities would suffer significant damage as a result of the blast.
Maybe the most concerning thing was the detection of the object only came after it entered the Earth’s atmosphere.
Perhaps, though, we should also note the long history of apparent UFO sightings in pre-Soviet-Russia, stretching back hundreds of years. There is no doubt that most meteorite incidents are exactly that and nothing more. There is also a rich history of UFO activity in the less-populated regions of northern Russia and the Siberia region.
Before we move on, you check out footage of the Chelyabinsk incident below.
Even If It Were “Just” A Meteor…?
So, is there any credence to the claims and speculative theories that the incident over Tunguska in the summer of 1908 was really one of an extraterrestrial nuts-and-bolts craft? One that possibly destroyed an incoming meteor? Either with an advanced weapon or simply by crashing into it and taking the impact in place of the ground? Or might this nuts-and-bolts craft have been destroyed by an ancient advanced technology? Possibly extraterrestrial in nature, that has remained hidden in the region referred to as the Valley of Death? Maybe this visiting craft was here through circumstance? Themselves in a dire situation that would result in the accidental explosion of their craft several miles above the Earth?
All of these are outlandish, of that there is no doubt. And while some are more so than others, the fact is that while the explanation of a meteor exploding above the surface of the Earth rather than simply impacting it as we might expect it to is perhaps the most reasonable, it remains, just a theory. The fact is there is still so much uncertainty around the apparent “sensible” and “reasonable” explanation. And an equal amount of historic mystique around the entire region in general. This surely keeps these speculative theories just as relevant.
The fact is, we’ll likely never know what the events of 30th June 1908 around 7:17 am were. Let’s say, for example, it was “just” a meteor. That in itself is a scary enough notion. And one that should make all of us sit up and think, this could happen again, at any moment. And without adequate warning. Whereas many are quick to criticize space research, perhaps it is an area we need to consistently fund? For reasons that most of us don’t always see.
Christian monks in the African country have long claimed the Ark is being kept under guard at the Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion in Axum.
In a blog post on the organization’s website it said: "As unusual as this may sound, the BASE team has uncovered compelling evidence that the Ark may well have been spirited up the Nile River to an eventual resting place in the remote highlands of ancient Kush — modern-day Ethiopia.”
According to their research, the Ark was taken out of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem during the reign of Manasseh, where it was first taken to a Jewish colony on Elephantine Island in Egypt.
After that, it is thought it was taken down the Nile to Lake Tana in Ethiopia and in particular Tana Kirkos Island, which is considered to be a holy island only populated by Christian monks.
From there the Ark was moved to Axum, or Aksum, a city in the north of the country.
The BASE Institute claims to have spoken to a man at the church who was “The Guardian of the Ark of the Covenant” and who spent his life inside a fenced-off area surrounding the church and claimed he would not leave the compound until he died and a new guardian took over the role.
The man claimed he was the only person who could look on the Ark because it was a holy object and he and the villagers would protect it with their lives, if necessary.
When an investigator from the Smithsonian approached the guardian in 2007, he was told: "I'm the guardian of the Ark, I have no other name."
While the BASE Institute did not claim the Ark had been found, it did say: “At this juncture, we cannot say with certainty that it is, but neither can we say for certain that it isn’t. What we have concluded is that St. Mary’s of Zion church in Axum, Ethiopia, is the resting place either of an incredible replica of the biblical Ark of the Covenant, or of the actual Ark of the Covenant itself.”

US Coast Guard Discloses Unexplained Disappearances of Submarines After UFO Activity (Video)
There are many strange facts surrounding a number of missing submarines. Joseph was on duty on an Ocean Station patrol on the Coast Guard Cutter Mellon.
It was during this patrol that they had a number of unique UFO sightings that included radar and visual verification by a number of witnesses.
Three objects passed over the ship traveling at 3500mph having approached the ship from the direction of where the sub was lost. Flying time of note from OSV to that site at that speed recorded and verified was approximately 10 minutes.
It is highly possible that the UFO phenomenon, and what could have been a very dangerous “rogue” operation gone array, possibly leading to what could have been one of the most significant event.
Even thought this may only be anecdotal data it may help penetrate the veil of secrecy and mystery surrounding the Submarines.
The best mysteries are always the biggest mysteries, and it doesn’t get much bigger than this one. Earlier this month, a strange, unexplained seismic event literally shook the planet, and scientists are still at a loss to explain what it was. The event was strong enough to be felt around the world and is unlike anything seismologists have previously detected.
“I don’t think I’ve seen anything like it.”
That’s how Columbia University seismologist Göran Ekström described the anomaly – although he added that “it doesn’t mean that, in the end, the cause of them is that exotic.” Yeah, yet. Until you have a definitive explanation, all explanations are possible, even if improbable.
The epicenter of this mysterious seismic disturbance appears to be near the small archipelago of Mayotte in the Indian ocean between Madagascar and Mozambique. Scientists have been studying other abnormal seismic activity in that area in the form of hundreds of small, frequent cluster earthquakes, but this recent anomaly is unlike any others they’ve seen yet. The event consisted of a twenty-minute pulse of low-frequency seismic waves occurring around every 17 seconds, so low and slow that they would have been undetectable by humans.
So far, scientists believe the low-frequency wave could have been caused by a magma reservoir emptying somewhere underground near the epicenter, but that’s only a theory until more data can be gathered. If that’s the case, this event would be some type of hybrid tectonic and volcanic phenomenon – still pretty rare and unusual. “There are a lot things we don’t know,” says French Geological Survey research engineer Nicolas Taillefer. “It’s something quite new in the signals on our stations.”
If there’s one thing humans aren’t prepared for, it’s new curveballs thrown at us by the angry Earth.
Of course, it could have been something else. The old ones awakening from the slumber in their house at R’lyeh? Whatever gargantuan creature that caused The Bloop finally rising from the depths? Secret underwater nuclear weapon tests? Are any of those any more terrifying than unknown tectonic activity literally shaking the whole planet?
When the Big One hits, our planet will never be the same. For humans, anyway. The Bloop will inherit the Earth. All hail Bloop.
Throughout the world there have at times been found mysterious remains that have been left where they lie for hundreds or thousands of years, and which serve to baffle and confuse all who look upon them, leaving few clues as to their fates or why they are there where they are. These might be within tombs locked away underground, mummies scattered about deserts, within jungles or atop the highest mountains, and they always leave mysteries swirling about them. Some of the oddest such discoveries have been made underwater, and here down in the depths below the waves are those who have sunk here along with whatever secrets they carried in life.
One of the stranger discoveries of a mysterious watery grave comes from Lake Okeechobee, in the U.S. state of Florida. Covering 730 square miles and sprawling across five counties it is the second largest freshwater lake completely within the United States, and even its name comes form the Native Hitchiti words oki, meaning “water,” and chobi, meaning “big.” In modern days it is known for its splendid scenery and outdoor recreation such as fishing, but beneath its veneer of beauty lies a darker side. It was long hidden away within the Florida interior, ensconced within thick jungle and steeped in native lore and legend, and the lake remained completely uncharted and unexplored by outsiders until the 1880s, when the area began to be developed and settled by the whites. In around 1910, these pioneers to this land of thick cypress stands, swamp, reeds, and forest began to bring back spooky stories from the muddy shores of the lake. Fishermen in the area told of bringing up human skulls instead of fish, and local folklorist Charlie Carlson explained of this, “Several old catfishermen told of `catchin’ human skulls’ in their nets. One early settler claimed that there were so many skulls in the shallows that, `During low water it looked like a pumpkin patch.’”
These spooky tales escalated when a surveyor who was looking to clear land at a place on the lake called Glassy Island claimed to have unearthed an estimated 50 skeletons buried in shallow graves within the sand. In 1918 there was also the gruesome discovery of hundreds of human skeletons lodged in the silt along the north sides of Ritta and Kreamer Islands during a period of low water. In 1953 a fisherman named Willis Crosby stumbled across nearly a dozen human skulls staring back at him through the murky water, and he would say of his grim discovery, “There were a bunch of other bones scattered all over the bottom, I guess they were human. Everybody said they were Indian bones, it was pretty much common sight when the water was down.”
There were many other accounts of finding human bones and skulls littering the bottom of the lake, often made visible when water levels dropped, which was not really good for the various tourist businesses and real-estate brokers who flocked to the area looking to develop it into some sort of resort. Such macabre findings have gone on right up to the present, when during a drought in 2006 and 2007 there were revealed large portions of the muddy bottom, which were found to contain innumerable Native artifacts and thousands of human skeletons. Interestingly, there have been claims that some of the enigmatic remains found at the time were of individuals far taller than any Natives of the area, with some skeletons supposedly found of those who would have measured over 7 feet in height.
Whether the stories of giant skeletons found here are true or not, there have definitely been a lot of bones found at the lake, and the really strange thing is that no one really knows where all of these skulls and bones came from. It has been suggested that they were of the victims of massive hurricanes that hit the area in 1926 and 1928, which killed thousands of people, but most of these were gathered and buried on the mainland, and it would still not explain all of the remains found here before those dates, and there is also the fact that in the early 1900s this was a very sparsely populated region, meaning that it seems strange there should be such large amounts of human remains all in one place if this was due to any sort of disaster.
Another theory is that these remains come from some massive battle that took place here, namely the 1837 Battle of Okeechobee, which was fought during the Seminole War, but this is estimated to have resulted in only a few dozen deaths, and so could not explain the finding of hundreds of mysterious skeletons or more down in the muck of the lake. Other theories are that they are a mass burial site for Natives of the area or that they are evidence of some lost tribe, but there is no evidence that points to this, as the remains are spread over such a large area and there are absolutely no other artifacts found near the bodies, just those bones. Additionally, they don’t seem to be the doing of conquistadors, and the folklorist, Carlson, has said of the mysterious bones, “Historians have found no connection to the early Spanish, and some believe the bones may be more than a thousand years old.”
Another idea is based on a persistent piece of local lore that says that in 1841 several hundred Seminole warriors chose to commit mass suicide at the lake rather than be captured by the enemy, slitting their own throats and flinging themselves into the murky waters, but there is very little in the historical record to show that this ever really happened. There is also the lore that says that the Seminole put a curse upon the lake, and that this curse is actually responsible for a lot of deaths and accidents here, such as the tragic airline crashes of Tristar Flight 401 in 1972 and ValuJet Flight 592 in 1996, both of which plummeted into the area costing hundreds of lives. For now no one knows, and the mysterious skeletons of Lake Okeechobee remain a mystery.
Equally as spooky is a trove of mysterious human remains found submerged in a sinkhole in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, which also just happens to be supposedly cursed and haunted. The place known as Sac Uayum is what is referred to as a cenote, which is a pit which is formed when limestone bedrock collapses to expose the groundwater beneath. Well-known for their stunningly crystal clear water, these cenotes are scattered all about the Yucatan Peninsula, with around 6,000 of them known so far and many of which have dark histories as places of ritual sacrifice for the ancient Mayans. The cenote Sac Uayum was never used for such purposes, as it was feared by the Mayans as a cursed place guarded by demons, and Natives of the area have to this day steered clear of it, saying it is haunted by angry spirits.
Sac Uayum lies just outside the ruins of the ancient Maya city of Mayapánreaches, reaches a depth of around 115 feet, and it was long completely unexplored until a recent survey delved into its depths and found some strange things indeed. Down there through the strikingly clear water it was found that the bottom was divided into two chambers that were littered with numerous human remains that no one can quite figure out, with archeologist Bradley Russell saying of their initial dives there, “It was genuinely strange the first time we saw it. From the very first dive, we had seen skulls. At the time of this dive, we were still doing an initial assessment and putting together a plan of action for mapping the cenote.”
Among the many remains the researchers have found within the cenote’s two submerged chambers are those of a woman with a skull that was intentionally flattened at birth for unknown reasons, the remains of cows, and skulls possessing teeth that are in remarkably good condition, suggesting they had been young at the time of death. As to why all of these bones are here, no one really knows. They do not display any sort of trauma, meaning that they were likely not sacrificial offerings, and many of the remains seem to be from people 18 years old or younger. There are also no signs of any relics or artifacts buried with them, meaning that they were not some sort of society elite getting a special burial. They could have been victims of disease that were tossed down here and there is no way to know that, but it would explain why many chose to stay away from this place and could have given rise to the legends of the curse, combined with the fact that the sinkhole lies to the south of Mayapánreaches, with south being the traditional Mayan direction of the underworld. In the end no one knows, and those bodies remain forgotten down in those clear azure waters, as mysterious as they have always been.
A fairly grim discovery was also made in the country of Sweden in 2009, when archeologists uncovered a treasure trove of the macabre while excavating a remote lake bed on the eastern shore of Lake Vattern. The researchers were able to find numerous skulls dated to around 8,000 years old, from men, women, and children, many of which were either gruesomely mounted atop stakes or had once been, making it all the creepier. The so-called “Tomb of the Sunken Skulls” is now not underwater, but at the time that these bodies were interred here it would have been, and to make it all the more bizarre, most of the skulls were missing their jawbones.
There have been the remains of 11 individuals found here, with only one retaining the jawbone and seven of the adults displaying some form of blunt trauma to the skull, made all the more odder that this trauma did not kill them, as there were signs that the skulls had healed afterwards, for reasons we will probably never know. The remains are tethered to a mysterious underwater burial site that measures 39 feet by 46 feet (12 by 14 meters), encircled by stones and with a flat surface upon which the skulls were staked and set into the earth beneath. The remains were interspersed with animal bones that seem to have been intentionally arranged in a specific pattern, with the south end holding brown bear bones, the remains of big game animals on the southeastern part, and the human bones in the center of it all. One of the researchers studying it has said of it, “It’s a very enigmatic structure. We really don’t understand the reason why they did this and why they put it under water.”
One of the recovered skulls
All of this was preserved phenomenally well, due to the low-oxygen conditions and alkaline water composition, creating an unearthly and rather surreal atmosphere for it all. As to why these remains are here there are only guesses. They could have been the victims of battle, their heads kept as trophies and staked for display. It might also have been some sort of burial site, possibly for those of some stigmatized group which would explain the strange circumstances of their internment, or a place of ritual sacrifice. A researcher of the site has said of it:
The people who were deposited like this in the lake, they weren’t average people, but probably people who, after they died, had been selected to be included in this ritual because of who they were, because of things they experienced in life.
In the end we have what is left of these enigmatic individuals floating about in the gloomy depths of their final resting places, forgotten and left to their mysteries they took with them to their deaths. They float about their in the depths, their empty eye sockets staring up through the water at the light of once was, their stories unknown and their deaths unexplained. What happened to these people? Who were they? Why were they buried here in their watery graves and how did they end up here? We can only speculate, and the answers may forever elude us.

Strange shenanigans in the sky around this Blimp situation. A very interesting video no doubt about it worth checking out. So many possibilities as what this can be. Military or alien invasion? =) If it were alien invasion I think we’d already be gone at this point.
Mr MBB333 why can’t drone fly close , is it legal or a mechanical physical reason ? Thanks. Ned Pod
A blimp, or non-rigid airship, is an airship (dirigible) or barrage balloon without an internal structural framework or a keel.

In the Outback of Queensland, Australia, ghostly orbs of light have been frightening people for centuries. Local residents call them Min Min lights, named after the early settlement and hotel in Boulia. Seemingly persistent one moment, but fleeting the next, the lights follow travelers far across the land and seem to have an intelligence about them. The town of Boulia has become somewhat famous for the ghost lights. Oral traditions of Aboriginal people recorded them as having existed even before the colonization of Europeans in Australia. What do we know about the mystery of the orbs and what are some of the theories about what they could be?
Boulia welcomes visitors eager to catch a glimpse of the magical Min Min lights.
Descriptions of the Min Min Lights
Europeans first documented the Min Min lights in 1838. They are usually described as fuzzy disks or glowing football-shaped orbs that can grow in size, get brighter or dimmer, take on different colors, and move about. They hover about three feet above the ground and are often mistaken for the lights of an oncoming vehicle. But, unlike vehicle lights, these phantom lights of Boulia often appear to follow or approach travelers, whether they are on foot, on horseback or driving a car. Sometimes they stand still, while at other times they seem to chase the observer or bob up and down as if they’re dancing. Thousands of people have seen them over the years, and many of them reported it as a frightening or “spooky” experience.
The Stockman’s Account in the Local Newspaper
The Sydney Morning Herald published an interesting story of an eyewitness account of these lights on January 25, 1947. The article began with the tale of the shady Min Min Hotel, which was once notorious for selling drugs and modified alcohol to the workers who would stop for a drink. Some of the men would stay at the hotel, while others passed through. Numerous men died there, either from the drugs and tainted alcohol, deadly brawls, or hoodlums murdered them for money. Those men were buried behind the hotel. But there was a fire in the early 1900s that burned the hotel down, and the only thing that remained was the graveyard. A short time after the fire, a stockman on horseback was passing through and he encountered the bizarre light. He rode to the police station and this is what he reported:
” I saw a strange glow appear right in the middle of the cemetery. I looked at it amazed. The glow got bigger, till it was about the size of a water-melon. I couldn’t believe my eyes as I saw it hovering over the ground. And then I broke into a cold sweat, for it started to come towards me.”
Remains of the graveyard at the old hotel site where the mysterious lights have often been seen in Boulia.
The stockman continued to tell the sergeant that he tried to ride away, but the light kept following him until he got to the edge of the town. The officer just smiled unbelievingly at his story. However, since the stockman’s encounter, thousands more have witnessed the lights.
Folklore of the Ghost Lights
It is unclear when Aboriginal people of Australia began seeing the Min Min lights. Oral traditions make it difficult to maintain a clear timelines of events. Some of the oldest stories of the Boulia region indicate that the increase in lights was associated with the killing of Aboriginal Australians by Europeans. Aboriginal people believed the lights came from their graveyards as the spirits of their dead ancestors who were perhaps unrestful because they felt the injustice of their murders. The Aborigines feared the lights, and believed that they could take someone’s life.
There are other theories about the lights. One idea suggests that they are the result of gaseous releases from the earth, such as those often seen at graveyards. Others propose glowing insects like fireflies may cause the illuminations. Fringe theorists support the UFO and paranormal avenues (ghosts, spirits, fairies).
Jack Pettigrew determined the lights to be a Fata Morgana.
Professor Jack Pettigrew’s Studies
Jack Pettigrew is Emeritus Professor of Physiology and Director of the Vision, Touch and Hearing Research Centre at the University of Queensland. While he was studying a nocturnal bird, he had an experience with the Min Min light. During his first encounter, he initially assumed it was the planet Venus. However, he observed that the light approached the horizon but never set below it, like a normal planet would as the earth rotated.
On another occasion, Professor Pettigrew was driving at night with some colleagues when they saw the mysterious phenomenon. At first, they thought the lights were the shining eyes of a cat maybe 50 meters away. When they stopped the car, though, the lights continued to hover in front of them. The mystery only deepened when the scientists tried to track the lights to their source, which they calculated to be over 300 kilometers away, beyond the horizon.
Pettigrew’s Fata Morgana
Professor Pettigrew hypothesized that the Min Min lights are a type of mirage, or a Fata Morgana. A temperature inversion causes these types of mirages, in which a layer of warm air traps a layer of dense cold air underneath it. When light passes through the two layers, refraction occurs. In other words, the light bends. Since it is optically difficult for humans to identify bent light, it is easy for someone to believe that the light originates from where it appears to be. In a Fata Morgana, the image appears to be floating above the horizon or close in front of them, and this can be quite frightening for many people.
Wonderful during the day, such Fata Morgana can be terrifying at night when a single light source gives no hint that it is actually part of a mirage emanating from a great distance. Even hardened Outback observers can break down when they are unable to interpret the unusual optical properties of the light in terms of their own, very different, past experiences.
Professor Pettigrew conducted an experiment in which he created his own type of phantom light phenomenon. He chose a night with the right weather conditions and drove about 10 kilometers. Six witnesses saw the car lights floating above the horizon. Many other people saw an even more spectacular Fata Morgana the following morning when they saw a whole mountain range floating above the ground.
Ghostly Lights Around the World
Phenomena of phantom lights aren’t unique to Australia. Many other countries have stories about floating orbs and therefore have many names for them: “ghost lights,” “fairy lights,” “will-o’-the-wisp,” and “ignis fatuus.” Will-o’-the-wisp are ghost lights that were observed and named by people of the ancient Celtic lands of Europe: Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales. Unlike the min min lights, the will-o’-wisps appear mostly around wet grounds such as bogs and swamps. Some people believe them to be fairies or spirits, and because the lights resemble a disembodied lantern moving through the darkness, the story of the jack-o’-lantern is related to the will-o’-the-wisp.

In Mexico there is a type of light similar to the ghost orbs of Boulia that locals believe are the souls of witches. They call these brujas. In the South American countries of Argentina and Uruguay the ghost lights are called luz mala, meaning evil light. Luz mala is a rural phenomenon, similar to the min min lights, however, the residents dread them and have incorporated them into many myths.
The Magic of the Mystifying Lights
Magic exists when something defies our understanding. There are many people in the Boulia region who want to keep that magic alive, however, science doesn’t necessarily negate the beauty or wonder of the Min Min lights. Aboriginal people of Australia first described this enduring mystery long ago. Hence, it is clear that many people of the region now identify with the lights. Whatever they may be, they have become an attraction for people who come from all over to get a glimpse of the famous lights of the Australian outback.
Out over the harsh terrain of the Outback of Western Australia, through all of the desert scrub, water-less dead creeks, gullies, and the unforgiving landscape of the flat, sun-scorched place called channel country and about 40 miles east of the tiny town of Boulia, once existed a town called Min Min, now merely desiccated ruins like the remains of some prehistoric beast. It is here among these ruins where a curious phenomenon has long been witnessed by those passing through, strange, inexplicable ghostly lights that bob and hover across this remote land to frighten and startle, and which are steeped in lore and legend.
What have come be called the Min Min lights are typically described as shimmering orbs that can range in color, including blue, white, green, red, and yellow, sometimes changing between all three, as well as take different sizes. They are sometimes said to have somewhat blurry edges that seem to pulsate or scintillate, and they can be slow moving or conversely very fast, flying through the night like a land bound shooting star, sometimes moving in a straight line and sometimes performing aerial acrobatics, and on very rare occasions they have been witnessed to break off into two separate lights that go careening their separate ways off into the night. Interestingly many of the reports that have come in describe the lights as following the witness, or conversely moving away from them if they try to approach, and some accounts claim that they evoke thick feelings or dread or confusion, leaving the witness quite unsettled. The lights might wander off into the distance out of sight or vanish into thin air, and they are always a startling thing to see out here in these badlands.
The Australian Outback
Considering their mysterious, unearthly nature it is perhaps not surprising at all that they have attracted their fair share of spooky lore. The Aborigines believed them to be the spirits of their ancestors roaming the land, and when white settlers began sighting the lights in 1918 there were immediate legends that they were connected to the old ghost town, or more specifically the notorious hotel that once stood there, which was said to be a nefarious place, indeed. According to this legend, the owners of the hotel were in the grim business of murdering guests for their valuables, after which the bodies would be unceremoniously buried in shallow graves in a dry patch of land behind the establishment. In this tale the lights are the vengeful ghosts of these victims, and that they seek to confuse travelers and get them lost in the forbidding Outback out of some vendetta. The lights became a sort of scary bedtime story, with whispers that the lights were omens of death, and that to see them meant certain doom, made even more ominous tales of those who claimed to have seen the lights before fatal mining accidents or disasters.
Some of the earliest published reports of Min Min light sightings originate in the 1930s, such as one account from 1937 from a rancher named Henry Lamond. He claimed that he had been out on horseback at around 2 AM in the morning when he saw what he at first took to be a car out there in the Outback, which was a little unusual but not in and of itself so completely bizarre either. However, things would get very strange very fast, and he would say:
Cars, though they were not common, were not rare. I took note of the thing, singing and trotting as I rode, and I even estimated the strength of the approaching light by the way it picked out individual hairs in the mare’s mane. Suddenly I realized it was not a car light — it remained in one bulbous ball instead of dividing into the 2 headlights, which it should have done as it came closer; it was too green-glare-y for an acetylene light; it floated too high for any car; there was something eerie about it.
The light came on, floating as airily as a bubble, moving with comparative slowness … I should estimate now that it was moving at about 10 mph and anything from 5 to 10 feet above the ground … Its size, I would say, at an approximate guess, would be about that of a new-risen moon. That light and I passed each other, going in opposite directions. I kept an eye on it while it was passing, and I’d say it was about 200 yards off when suddenly it just faded and died away. It did not go out with a snap -its vanishing was more like the gradual fading of the wires in an electric bulb.
One very eerie and well known report with a definite air of the paranormal comes that very same year, and was written of by newspaper columnist Bill Bowyang. He claimed that one evening from their camp he and his companions had seen an odd light bobbing and weaving about in the cool desert night, which he at first took to be someone out there waving about a lantern, but soon saw that this could not be the case as it would rise high in the air and then back down again. Bowyang suggested following it, after which his frightened companions warned him that it was a ghost light and that it was trying to lead them to their doom over the precipice of a rocky chasm they knew of hidden in the inky dark in that direction. Curiosity got the better of him, and he decided to go out and see what the light was anyway, saying of what happened next:
I strode on into the darkness. I had got to within perhaps twenty yards of the peculiar light, which was still hovering like some huge ball of glowing embers in mid-air about seven or eight feet from the ground, when suddenly it swerved abruptly to one side. A man’s warning voice came through the darkness. ‘The abyss ain’t a dozen yards from where ye are; come back, come back.’ I stopped, but not before I had seen – true to the old fellow’s words – that the strange light had indeed drifted out over the great chasm. As I watched, the light hesitated, floated back a little towards me, then as though tempting me to follow, but at the same time annoyed at the possibility of losing a victim, it glided back again over the chasm where, with a few final erratic movements, it dropped from sight.
This ominous reputation as entities trying to baffle and confuse has been echoed in other similar reports, such as one from a local named James Birch, from the isolated Outback town of Kimberley. He says that he grew up hearing the tales of the Min Min lights, and says of them and his own experience:
As a kid growing up the old people used to tell me, they [Min Min lights] were old people’s spirits looking after country. If you’ve lived in the Kimberley you would have experienced spotting a Min Min light once in your life. We were heading back into town after hunting. I was driving towards town when all of sudden a Min Min light appeared. We all stared at the light and all of a sudden we were going in the opposite way, going back into the bush and following the light without even realizing.
Over the years there have been hundreds of such sightings of the Min Min lights, and the strange phenomenon continues to this day, sparking much speculation and debate as to what they might be. Of course there are the ideas that these are ghosts, spirits, or UFOs, but there have been more scientific efforts to try and explain them as well, ranging from the simple to the complex. Some of the more mundane explanations are that these lights are caused by birds, owls, or bio-luminescent insects, but this does not seem to really fit in with what witnesses report seeing. There are also the theories that the lights are caused by some sort of fluorescent gases or that they are a mirage caused by the clash of layers of cold and warm air, which can have the effect of bending light and causing distant light sources over the horizon such as headlights or fires to appear as if they are much closer, a phenomenon known as Fata Morgana, although these do not explain reports in which the witness sees them fly over their heads, pass right by them, or circle them out in the dark. The lights could also be caused by other factors such as ball lightning, ionization in geophysically-generated electrical fields, or some other little understood natural phenomenon, but no one knows for sure, all we know is that they are weird indeed.
Many of these explanations do not fully explain all of the idiosyncrasies of Min Min light reports, such as the seemingly intelligent nature they demonstrate, ghostly voices, or the profound fear they are said to generate, and in the end the phenomenon has not conclusively been solved. Whether the Min Min lights are the spirits of Aboriginal elders, the ghosts of dead settlers, UFOs, mirages, misidentifications, or something else altogether, they have gone on to become one of the most enduring unexplained mysteries of Australia’s Outback, and continue to capture the imagination.
A mysterious green fireball was recently seen in the skies above Russia’s high-tech weapons research city. Are the Russians showing off one of Vladimir Putin “secret weapons” the area is known for, or was this merely a meteorite exploding over a highly conspicuous location?
For now, little is known about the mystery light in the sky. In the early morning hours of Tuesday, November 27, motorists driving near the research town of Akademgorodok in southern Siberia spotted a bright green flash followed by a tail streaking across the sky. It’s Russia, so of course several dash cams caught the incident on film. Russians love dash cams.
Akademgorodok was like a Soviet version of Silicon Valley during the Cold War.
Russia’s state-run media has explained the incident as a meteor explosion – although they also noted that local astronomers are “somewhat bewildered” by the event because no meteor events were expected in the area. Ilya Orlov, deputy director of the Big Novosibirsk Planetarium, says that while the phenomenon was beautiful, he and fellow researchers are at a loss to explain what may have caused it:
Most likely, this is a flash of bolide, that is, the fall of a bright meteor with a flash. It is all the more surprising because there are no active meteor showers now. It can be either the tail of a [Leonid] meteor shower or a lone meteor. We need to find out.
Russian social media has been full of speculation ranging from secret rocket launches to tests of “extremely advanced weapons,” and aliens, naturally. With other unexplained explosions being caught on camera around the world, it really makes you wonder if we aren’t experiencing an uptick in meteorite impacts – or are we just catching them on camera more frequently in the dash cam/smartphone age?

Akademgorodok was established at the height of the Cold War to be a scientific research center and today remains a research and education hub for Siberia. Some of the research facilities there are involved in nuclear research, laser physics, and chemical kinetics and combustion, while the nearby Russian State Research Centre of Virology and Biotechnology is believed to conduct some of the most deadly chemical and biological weapons research on the planet and houses one of the last samples of smallpox in the world.
A mysterious seismic wave rolled around the world for more than 20 minutes… And yet, it seems, no human felt them
A mysterious seismic wave rolled around the world for more than 20 minutes… And yet, it seems, no human felt them
On the morning of November 11, just before 9:30 UT, a mysterious rumble rolled around the world. The seismic waves began roughly 15 miles off the shores of Mayotte, a French island sandwiched between Africa and the northern tip of Madagascar. The waves buzzed across Africa, ringing sensors in Zambia, Kenya, and Ethiopia. They traversed vast oceans, humming across Chile, New Zealand, Canada, and even Hawaii nearly 11,000 miles away. These waves didn’t just zip by; they rang for more than 20 minutes. And yet, it seems, no human felt them.
Strange seismic waves were picked up circling the globe on November 11. Now seismologists are trying to figure out why.
Only one person noticed the odd signal on the U.S. Geological Survey’s real-time seismogram displays. An earthquake enthusiast who uses the handle @matarikipax saw the curious zigzags and posted images of them to Twitter. That small action kicked off another ripple of sorts, as researchers around the world attempted to suss out the source of the waves. Was it a meteor strike? A submarine volcano eruption? An ancient sea monster rising from the deep?
“I don’t think I’ve seen anything like it,” says Göran Ekström, a seismologist at Columbia University who specializes in unusual earthquakes.
“It doesn’t mean that, in the end, the cause of them is that exotic,” he notes. Yet many features of the waves are remarkably weird—from their surprisingly monotone, low-frequency “ring” to their global spread. And researchers are still chasing down the geologic conundrum.
In a normal earthquake, the built-up tensions in Earth’s crust release with a jolt in mere seconds. This sends out a series of waves known as a “wave train” that radiates from the point of the rupture, explains Stephen Hicks, a seismologist at the University of Southampton.
The fastest-traveling signals are Primary waves, or P-waves, which are compression waves that move in bunches, like what happens to an extended slinky that gets suddenly pushedat one end. Next come the secondary waves, or S-waves, which have more of a side-to-side motion. Both of these so-called body waves have relatively high frequencies, Hicks says, “a sort of ping rather than a rumbling.”
Finally, chugging along at the end come slow, long-period surface waves, which are similar to the strange signals that rolled out from Mayotte. For intense earthquakes, these surface waves can zip around the planet multiple times, ringing Earth like a bell, Hicks says.
However, there was no big earthquake kicking off the recent slow waves. Adding to the weirdness, Mayotte’s mystery waves are what scientists call monochromatic. Most earthquakes send out waves with a slew of different frequencies, but Mayotte’s signal was a clean zigzag dominated by one type of wave that took a steady 17 seconds to repeat.
“It’s like you have colored glasses and [are] just seeing red or something,” says Anthony Lomax, an independent seismology consultant.
This is the recording of the ~09:30 UTC Southern Indian Ocean event from Kilima Mbogo, Kenya. The signal has had a highpass filter applied to it at 0.01 Hz, 0.05 Hz, 0.1 Hz & 0.2 Hz respectively. As can be seen the signal is very low frequency @stevenjgibbons@ALomaxNet
Narrowing the location down the origin area appears to be in the region of the Comoros/Mayotte. A news article today suggests that the Mayotte swarm which began earlier this year may indeed be magmatic-related. Was this event a submarine volcanic eruption?
Based on the scientific sleuthing done so far, the tremors seem to be related to a seismic swarm that’s gripped Mayotte since last May. Hundreds of quakes have rattled the small nation during that time, most radiating from around 31 miles offshore, just east of the odd ringing. The majority were minor trembles, but the largest clocked in at magnitude 5.8 on May 15, the mightiest in the island’s recorded history. Yet the frequency of these shakes has declined in recent months—and no traditional quakes rumbled there when the mystery waves began on November 11.
The French Geological Survey (BRGM) is closely monitoring the recent shaking, and it suggests that a new center of volcanic activity may be developing off the coast. Mayotte was formed from volcanism, but its geologic beasts haven’t erupted in over 4,000 years. Instead, BRGM’s analysis suggests that this new activity may point to magmatic movement offshore—miles from the coast under thousands of feet of water. Though this is good news for the island inhabitants, it’s irksome for geologists, since it’s an area that hasn’t been studied in detail.
“The location of the swarm is on the edge of the [geological] maps we have,” says Nicolas Taillefer, head of the seismic and volcanic risk unit at BRGM. “There are a lot things we don’t know.” And as for the November 11 mystery wave, he says, “it’s something quite new in the signals on our stations.”
The early period of rumbling was also overprinted with what seemed to be the P- and S- waves of tiny tremors, explains Lomax, who spotted the faint pings by filtering out the low-frequency signals. Such pings are commonly associated with magma moving and fracturing rock as it squirts through the crust. But even those signals were a little strange, says Helen Robinson, a Ph.D. candidate in applied volcanology at the University of Glasgow.
“They’re too nice; they’re too perfect to be nature,” she jokes, although she quickly adds that an industrial source is impossible, since no wind farms or drilling are taking place in the deep waters off Mayotte’s shores.
Ekström thinks that the events on the morning of November 11 actually did begin with an earthquake of sorts equivalent to a magnitude 5 temblor. It passed by largely unnoticed, he suggests, because it was what’s known as a slow earthquake. These quakes are quieter than their speedy cousins since they come from a gradual release of stress that can stretch over minutes, hours, or even days.
“The same deformation happens, but it doesn’t happen as a jolt,” Ekström says.
These slow types of quakes are often associated with volcanic activity. At the Mount Nyiragongo volcano in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a similar slow earthquake and low-frequency waves were linked with a magma chamber collapsing. Slow quakes were also stunningly frequent during the most recent fiery run of Kilauea in Hawaii, which produced nearly 60 of these events between May and the end of July, sending seismic waves around the world.
Assembling the geologic puzzle
So what is actually causing the super-slow vibrations at Mayotte? A submarine eruption could produce these low rumblings, but evidence for such an event has yet to materialize.
Most current guesses revolve around resonance in a magma chamber, triggered by some type of subsurface shift or chamber collapse. The resonance itself can be any type of rhythmic motion, like sloshing of the molten rock, or a pressure wave ricocheting through the magma body, Ekström explains. Studying the intricate features of the seismic waves could yield clues to the size and shape of the molten material lurking below.
It is very difficult, really, to say what the cause is and whether anyone’s theories are correct.
“It’s like a music instrument,” says Jean-Paul Ampuero, a seismologist at the Université Côte d’Azur in France. “The notes of a music instrument—whether it’s grave or very pitchy—depends on the size of the instrument.”
The signal’s odd uniformity could be due, in part, to the surrounding rocks and sediments, Lomax adds. Perhaps the local geology is filtering the sounds and only letting this single 17-second wave period escape.
Robinson agrees with this idea, noting that the geology here is extremely complex. Mayotte sits in a region crisscrossed by ancient faults—including fracture zones from the final breakup of the southern supercontinent Gondwana. What’s more, the underlying crust is somewhat transitional, shifting between the thick continental crusts and the thinner oceanic crusts. Perhaps this complexity drives the simplicity of the escaping waves, Robinson says.
Secrets of the sea
For now, though, the lack of data makes it tough to say more about the wiggly forms. Hicks’ preliminary models hinted that the waves emanated from subsurface inflation, rather than a magma chamber draining or collapsing. But with a little additional data, the model flipped and pointed to chamber deflation instead.
It also could be a bit of both, notes Robinson: “Some collapse mechanisms, you can get inflation and deflation occurring at the same time,” she says. Or sometimes they can alternate, pumping up and down like Earth’s fiery lungs.
“It is very difficult, really, to say what the cause is and whether anyone’s theories are correct—whether even what I’m saying has any relevance to the outcome of what’s going on,” Robinson says.
BRGM plans to do ocean bottom surveys to get more detailed information about the region and investigate the possibility of a submarine eruption. In the meantime, the seismic sleuthing continues with the data that’s available. Whether the cause is ordinary or extraordinary remains to be seen, Lomax says, but the science—and the fun—is in the chase.
“Depending on what field and what time in history, 99.9 percent of the time, it’s ordinary, or noise, or a mistake, and 0.1 percent, it’s something” he says. “But that’s just the way it goes. That’s the way it should go. That’s scientific advance.”
This video was sent to ApexTV by a man who works as a security guard for a law office in Alaska. He was able to catch something extremely strange on a security camera in the main lobby.
What you’re about to see is immensely bizarre. Watch this and decide for yourself. Due to the appearance of the strange man, many people online have come to the conclusion that this is an actual sighting of the infamous men in black, who are said to be the ones who keep witnesses of strange events quiet about what they have seen.
Following the mysterious men in black footage Apex TV was recently able to get in contact with Nicole, who claims to be the woman from the video who appeared to have been taken by the men in black.
In a live interview with Nicole, Apex TV attempt to sort out exactly what happened in the strange piece of security camera footage.
According to Collective-Evolution it turns out that the reason for the encounter, as stated by Nicole, was simply to inquire about her pictures and her experience she had with some friends.
While she and her friends were hiking, she came across a cave and decided to check it out on her own in the morning. The cave, as she describes, was lined with crystals, but nothing out of the ordinary happened.
The Men in Black, seemed to be very curious if she saw anything while she was in the cave. After the encounter, she said she was given a vaccine. She wasn’t supposed to remember anything when she woke up as she was told, but she does. There also seems to have been telepathic communication.
Regardless of whether or not we know that this encounter is genuine, it is certainly worth considering given how much it aligns with other well documented Men in Black encounters.
Cattle Mutilations: The History and Mystery Behind Them
Cattle Mutilations: The History and Mystery Behind Them
Cattle mutilations have been plaguing the farmers that suffer from them since the early 1600s, and an end to these unexplained incidents does not seem to be in sight.
In case you are reading this and are unaware of cattle mutilations, these are incidents that have been reported regarding dead animals mostly in farms with certain organs missing and no proof of anyone coming or going.
Investigators in the 1960’s started taking it as a strong indication of alien involvement, and stories spread far and wide about extraterrestrial beings lifting creatures up into their spaceships to conduct gruesome experiments on them before sending back the mutilated carcasses.
First Cattle Mutilations
The first occurrences in the 1600s were said to be of similar nature to what happens today, where the sheep that were found had very specific organs missing. People who spoke about the cattle mutilations at the time said it was a satanic force that was causing it or something that was of an unearthly nature.
The first reported incident was witnessed by Alexandra Hamilton who on April 21, 1897, said that he heard humming noises that he followed only to witness what he describes as an airship hovering over his cattle.
He described it as a cigar-shaped craft that carried six of the strangest creatures he has ever seen. This is a snippet of some of the exact words Alexandra used to describe the incident that later spread like wildfire:
It seemed to pause and hover directly over a two-year old heifer, which was bawling and jumping, apparently fast in the fence. Going to her, we found a cable about a half-inch in thickness made of some red material, fastened in a slip knot around her neck, one end passing up to the vessel, and the heifer tangled in the wire fence. We tried to get it off but could not, so we cut the wire loose and stood in amazement to see the ship, heifer and all, rise, slowly, disappearing in the northwest.
Unfortunately, this incident was later admitted to being fake, and only spread because of the time period that it happened in. The only reason people continue to talk about it today is because it so closely matches the facts that surround mutilations seen now.
The first modern incident was seen in 1967 with the infamous “Lady mutilation”, wherein press really seemed to focus on the possibility that it was extraterrestrials behind the occurrences.
Agnes King and her son found there horse, Lady, mutilated with certain organs missing, which led to subsequent press involvement.
The articles during that time focused on the fact that there were unearthly reasons behind the death of the horse and that the cuts were far too precise for it to be an animal.
There were also no footsteps leading to or away from the horse, which gave more attention to the possibility that aliens and UFOs are conducting gruesome experiments in the name of science.
The FBI and their role in what we believe in today
Like many aspects of modern society, when people become too paranoid, officials are forced to step whether they deem it worthy or not.
This is precisely what happened in the 1970s when the FBI had to begin investigations regarding cattle mutilations, because there were simply too many people complaining. The conclusions that the FBI came to gave absolutely no credence to the conspiracy theories that were being talked about.
The FBI came to the conclusion that foxes were responsible for the attacks where genitals, lips, ears and other soft body parts went missing in particular.
The final 32-page report explained the smooth, precise cuts as being the work of the smooth teeth that worked like scissors for foxes because they were small and swift creatures.
The FBI ended the investigation a little half-heartedly as well, due to the fact that at the time there was no law against cattle mutilation, which made the investigation low on the priority list.
Even though the FBI narrowed the incidents down to natural death and scavengers, conspiracies still persisted, insisting that these organs were taken in specific because soft tissue is more easily attracted to natural inorganic substances in the environment which makes them great test subjects for, you guessed it, extraterrestrials.
The conclusion is that there are far too many incidents with unexplainable factors surrounding them for all of the incidents to be because of foxes and scavengers. This leaves room for other guesses to be made.
Cattle mutilations today and what has changed
Fast forward to 2018. The idea of a cow floating up into the sky with a mysterious light surrounding it, and its tongue gaping out is still believable for a lot of people around the world.
In Argentina, history seemed to be repeating itself in August of 2018 when farmers were convinced that aliens were making cuts and marks over the bodies of mutilated animals, far too precise for any other explanation.
Farmers in the area were blaming a South American mythical creature or aliens for the mutilations which shows that the way the incidents are perceived has not changed all that much.
These samples were then sent for further research and no proof of the cow being shot and poisoned seemed to further convince the farmers that it was an unearthly cause.
Experts on the subject did end the argument by saying that a hocicudo, which is an animal native to the region, is the most logical cause since these ‘natural scavengers’ seem to target the softer parts of the body for food.
In regard to the cause of death, experts said exposure to the changing weather and lack of food is probably what caused the deaths.
This answer is also extremely similar to the one given by the FBI during the investigations in the 70s.
Although this explanation is logical, it is not exactly satisfactory for the farmers.
They and other believers insist that the cuts are too precise and the mutilations happen at different times during the year. So as logical as the explanation is, it does seem to leave certain parts of the mystery clouding cattle mutilations unexplained, which leaves room for more speculation.

With Michael Tellingers dedication to discovering, tracking, and revealing vanished civilizations, it’s now possible to reach into the minds of our ancient forefathers to discover a purpose greater than what we might have expected.
Michael looks at major discoveries in the field of ancient Technology and delivers proof of advancement in the form of tools and artefacts that support his scientific findings.
He discovered more than 10 million stone ruins that are not dwellings,but energy generating devices. this vanished civilization had an astute knowledge of the laws of nature and the generation of free ENERGY from Mother Earth for all their needs.
Scholars have told us that the first civilization on Earth emerged in a land called Sumer some 6000 years ago.
New archaeological and scientific discoveries made by Tellinger and a team of leading scientists, show that the Sumerians and even the Egyptians inherited all their knowledge from an earlier civilization that lived at the southern tip of Africa more than 200,000 years ago… mining gold.
Aliens, The Occult, And The Third Reich – A Case Study - PART I
Aliens, The Occult, And The Third Reich – A Case Study - PART I
byMarcus LowthEstimated Reading Time:23minutes
The Nazis, the Third Reich, and some of the high-ranking individuals involved with it have been subject to a plethora of conspiracy theories since the end of the Second World War. And, it is easy to see why. The military strength of the Third Reich would catch the entire planet off-guard when they launched their offenses against Poland, swiftly followed by their capturing of entire countries of Europe with apparent ease. In fact, given the astonishing precision of their military, combined with the fact that many scientists working in Nazi Germany were collectively and literally years ahead of any others, as well as the regime’s genuine interest in seeking esoteric knowledge, wisdom, and relics, and further rumors of crashed and recovered UFOs, many researchers have asked the question. As bizarre as it sounds, may they have received “help” from non-human intelligence, whatever that intelligence might be.
Furthermore, what should we make of the regime’s equally genuine interest in the Occult and dark arts of what most of us would recognize as witchcraft or sorcery? Or what of the equally bizarre claims, but made in all seriousness by some, that Hitler himself was possessed by a “dark force”. A force that some of those close to him claimed would haunt and torment the leader of perhaps the most brutal regime of the twentieth century? Indeed, the Second World War, as well as the events that followed and led to it, are themselves surrounded in conspiracy and hidden agendas. And as bizarre as some of these claims of Nazi powers might be, if they are proven true, if only in part, it would suggest not only a different version of events during the war, but also to our collective history that followed and continues today.
The Black Forest Incident, 1936
Although there is no absolute and definitive proof of the incident, in the 1990s, in part through the release of documents from behind the Iron Curtain and the dissolution of the Soviet Union, reports began to surface of a crashed UFO in the Black Forest near Frieberg at some point in 1936. According to the claims, the SS were quick to recover the downed vehicle. It was discreetly transferred to the main Nazi headquarters at Wewelsburg Castle, the famous triangular, three-towered building built in the early 1600s, and privy to what was undoubtedly some of the most brutal military planning in history.
Once there, numerous German scientists and engineers would examine and begin to reverse engineer the craft. They would also extract certain aspects of the technology that they perceived to be able to use to their advantage during the upcoming war. Which Hitler and the regime were already planning and building up their military in anticipation of.
Might incidents such as this, if we assume them to be true for a moment, have contributed to the far advancement of German scientists? Both in the run-up to, and, increasingly, during the Second World War, seemingly right up until the fall of Berlin? We will look at this more, shortly. As well as what potential achievements scientists working with this recovered otherworldly technology might have managed. However, a claim from 2013 is worth looking at here.
An unnamed author would claim in an online article that he had recovered a pair of field glasses used by one of the SS officers on the night the UFO crashed. By “channeling” through this item he would declare as well as the craft, there was a survivor. What’s more, these occupants weren’t alien, but humans from the future.
Nazi Scientists Far More Advanced Than We Might Think!
In his book ‘The Occult Connection: Unidentified Flying Objects’, Ken Hudnall would highlight several instances that would suggest the recovering of alien technologies by the Third Reich. As well as the apparent successful reverse-engineering of such technologies, if only in part.
Hudnall states that following the releasing of classified documents, as well as through the numerous witness statements that have since come to light, it is now known that behind closed doors throughout the Second World War “Nazi researchers succeeded in the development of nuclear bombs, digital computers, the use of liquid air, super metals and a host of other advanced projects”. Many of those involved in these projects were callously rounded up and executed by high-ranking Nazis when it became obvious the war was lost. At the same time, the vast majority of research notes were destroyed. Only a small portion of these records still survive.
As we will examine in more detail shortly, the Nazi regime would send its researchers and scholars to all parts of the world in search of ancient relics, texts, and esoteric knowledge. One of these apparent expeditions to Tibet, at least according to one of the aforementioned surviving Nazi records, would result in the discovery of “one or more” crashed alien crafts. As well as “at least one alien crew”. Some rumors, although there are no reports to back up such claims, suggest that an alien outpost was discovered somewhere deep in the Himalayas.
As bizarre as these records and subsequent suggestions are, might the Nazis have come to some arrangements with a “non-human” race and come into possession of highly advanced technology? Or might they have discovered knowledge in the ancient Sanskrit texts that speak of Vimanas – literal flying machines of the ancient world? More on this later.
An Absolute Fury Of Advancement
Wherever any help might have come from, or whether their advancement was simply one of more funding, or even a fear to fail, technology and how it found its way into the German military and the many vehicles and weapons it produced, even during the war years alone, was an astronomical achievement. For example, according to Hudnall, the German military were in possession of 57 submarines at the end of the 1930s. However, during the years of the Second World War, they would suddenly build 1,163 submarines. And furthermore, these new submarines were the most advanced and technologically sound as the world had ever seen.
There are also several interesting notes in the war files of both the British and United States. And what’s more, many of them are surprisingly similar. They mention seeing “flying apparatuses resembling British military helmets” while on bombing missions over German airspace. Many of these reports speak of pilots opening fire on these strange objects but they would cause no damage whatsoever. Major R. Holmes of the British Air Force would file a report on 14th October 1943 of seeing several “big bright discs” during a mission over Schweinfurt. Like other pilots, they would fire upon these discs. Their rounds, however, would have no effect.
Might scientists and engineers working under the Third Reich have really managed to reverse-engineer, or even build from ancient texts, a flying craft unlike any other. One we would call today a UFO?
The Haunebu Disc
We will look at where the inspiration and drive from within the Third Reich to carry out such programs eminates in a moment, but there were several apparent projects and disc-shaped crafts produced by German engineers under the Nazis. Perhaps the best known of these is the Haunebu Disc. According to records, under the guidance of the Vril Society, scientists and engineers in Nazi-controlled Germany would begin development of this saucer-shaped craft in 1935. They would look to use electromagnetic fields as well as “free energy” as a form of propulsion. It would also put to work the vast amounts of research that had gone into anti-gravity technologies.
Testing of the Haunebu Disc, which was around 25 feet across and would seat eight pilots, would take place in the town of Hauneburg. According to some researchers, the disc would reach speeds of up to 3,000 miles per hour. However, it could only operate at very low altitudes. Test flights would continue, however, and by the early-1940s, it is suggested that such breakneck speeds of over 10,000 miles per hour were achieved.
Was the disc-shape arrived at merely through study of physics and German engineers’ own findings? Or did the influence of such a craft come from elsewhere. It is perhaps worth looking at the group overseeing the projects, the Vril Society.
Despite their connections to the Third Reich, many researchers state that the core members of Vril society were far from the aggressors that their Nazi members were. And, as we shall see in a moment, their apparent activities in the final days of the war, at least for the Third Reich, would suggest an independent agenda. One revolving around exploration and ancient wisdom as opposed to outright aggression and conquest of entire nations. And, in turn, the world.
According to some theories, when it was obvious that the war was lost, and with Soviet and Allied troops marching down on Berlin from both sides, Orsic would send out a predetermined code of sorts to Vril members who understood it. They were to meet at a certain destination where they would be picked up by visitors from another world. Interestingly, Orsic and many other Vril members simply disappeared off the face of the planet following the war, possibly quite literally. Another high-ranking Nazi, Martin Borman, who was also a high-ranking Vril member and vanished shortly after the fall of Berlin.
Interestingly, Orsic would also claim to have received telepathic messages on how to construct a space-faring craft. This was something the secret society would have the SS develop with the engineering might of the Nazi regime.
The “Breakaway Society” Theories!
The presence of the Vril society and the influence they had within the Third Reich, also highlights the amount of apparent double-crossing taking place during the war years. Hitler, who was a member of “The Order of the Black Sun” believed that he had successfully infiltrated the highest levels of the Vril society. It would seem, however, given how they disappeared without a trace, that they may have been one cosmic step ahead of them.
The Black Sun group, though, according to some researchers, mediums, and whistleblowers, would make contact with another extraterrestrial race through the Vril’s methods. One that was much more in line with their ambitions. This race is said to originate from Draco in the Orion constellation. Furthermore, they are “reptilian humanoid” in nature and would appear to be the same reptilian aliens that, most prominently, researcher David Icke has spoken about since the late-1990s. A secret race who he claims hold positions of power in the world today. What’s more, the ultimate goal of this race of aliens, who themselves controlled by an artificial intelligence, is to control all biological life wherever it is found in the Universe.
Perhaps it is the murky conspiracies such as these that lead to the claims of a Nazi base on the Moon. There are several claims that circulate regularly. Perhaps one of the most intriguing is that made by Bulgarian researcher, Vladimir Terziski. He claims that Nazi scientists managed to land Germans on the Moon in 1942. They would then proceed to tunnel under the surface and establish a permanent base on Luna. Furthermore, the launch-point for these missions was an undisclosed location in Antarctica. Further still, the rash of UFO sightings in the early-1940s was, according to Terziski, were actually Nazi test-flight to and from Earth.
Further Connections And Belief In The Occult
As we know, many high-ranking members of the Nazi party were also members of the Vril Society. And those that weren’t had passionate and genuine interests in similar things. Particularly, the Occult. Indeed, it is an interesting notion in itself that at the heart of one of the most accomplished and brutal regimes in history, is a core of people with a genuine belief in such “black arts” and, more importantly, a desire to use them for their own ends. We might ask, which attracted which? Did these members of such a bloodthirsty yet focused organization share a belief in such energies because of their desire for bloodthirst? Or was their belief in such arts ultimately venerated by their sudden rise to political and military power?
As a result of this genuine interest, many mediums and psychics would often be brought in to Nazi headquarters for assistance and otherworldly insight into a whole manner of details. In fact, so passionate was the Nazi’s interest in these things and the people that could provide them, British secret intelligence services would begin to do likewise in an apparent effort to combat the Nazis in the psychic realms as well as on the battlefield. This is an interesting detail and one that would replicate itself decades later when the American intelligence services began experimenting with remote viewing upon receiving intelligence that their Soviet counterparts had been doing likewise.
What is clear, interest in the Occult, while likely more widespread in general throughout “upper class” European societies at the time, was particularly prevalent in the Nazi party and the Third Reich. In fact, how far such interests went is very much open to debate. Especially when you consider the claims of Hermann Rauschning.
Possession By “The New Man” Living Among Us?
According to Hermann Rauschning, who we should note many mainstream historians dismiss as a reliable source, Hitler was likely “possessed” by a dark force unknown, perhaps even the Devil himself. And what’s more, he would suggest that Hitler himself was in constant fear of this otherworldly energy. In his book ‘Hitler Speaks’ he would liken Hitler to a “medium” who would suddenly take on “supernatural powers” temporarily before falling “back into mediocrity” once more. Hitler would do this when giving his speeches and was “possessed by forces outside of himself – demonical forces”. Furthermore, Hitler was merely the “vehicle” for these forces to carry out their will.
Perhaps most unnerving, however, are the claims of Hitler’s recurring night terrors, from which he would wake screaming and in a blind panic. On one particular night, according to Rauschning, he would state to his aide he had come into the room, “What will the social order of the future be like? Comrade, I will tell you. There will be a class of overlords. After that, the rank and file of the party members in hierarchical order. And then the great mass of anonymous followers.” He would then continue, “And over and above all these will reign a new and exalted nobility of whom I cannot speak. But of all these plans the militant members will know nothing. The ‘new man’ is living among us now. He is here. I have seen the new man. He is intrepid and cruel. I was afraid of him”.
There are many theories and interpretations of what Hitler might have meant here. Was it a moments “clarity” on the state of humanity? Or was his meaning more direct and literal? Was he speaking of some force that would rule him from the shadows by “possession”?
“Follow Hitler! He Will Dance, But It Is I Who Have Called The Tune!”
As bizarre as Rauschning’s comments sound, though, he is certainly not on his own in making such claims. For example, Alan Bullock, in his book ‘Hitler, a Study in Tyranny’ would state that Hitler had a “power to bewitch an audience” similar to the effect that the “occult arts of the African Medicine-man or the Asiatic Shaman”. He would also state how some would refer to him more as a “medium” or a “hypnotist”.
Another writer, and one of Hitler’s childhood friends, August Kubizek, would recall in his book ‘The Young Hitler I Knew – The Memoirs Of Hitler’s Childhood Friend” a conversation with the (then) 17-year-old Hitler. He would suddenly begin speaking of restoring Germany to its former great position and place of glory. Kubizek would remember “it was if another being spoke out of his body”. He would add that this apparent entity seemingly “moved him as much as it moved me”.
Theosophist Alice Bailey would claim during the Second World War that Hitler was in the possession of “dark forces”. Followers of her work have since claimed that Hitler, along with several other prominent leaders, were possessed by such dark forces as part of a coordinated attack by evil energies against the Earth.
Perhaps most notable, and chilling if there is any truth to it, are the apparent comments in a letter of Dietrich Eckhart, Hitler’s mentor as a young man in the 1920s, to a like-minded friend in 1923. According to author and researcher, James Herbert Brennan in ‘Occult Reich’, Eckhart would write, “Follow Hitler! He will dance, but it is I who have called the tune. We have given him the means of communication with Them. Do not mourn for me. I shall have influenced history more than any other German”.
Who, were Them?
As well as their apparent interest in entities and energies from other worlds and dimensions, many of the same high-ranking members of the Third Reich would share an equal desire to track down lost relics of the ancient past. Even such relics that mainstream history would suggest don’t even exist, such as the Ark of the Covenant or the Holy Grail.
Just one of these was Heinrich Himmler. He would be the driving force behind an education institute for the study of German ancestral heritage, or Ahnenerbe. However, many researchers believe the real reasons for its existence was to allow Himmler, on behalf of the Third Reich and Vril Society, to look into evidence of a “superior” alien race. As well evidence of such legendary worlds as Atlantis and even entrances to the inner Earth. In fact, Himmler’s firm belief was that Atlantis did exist. And survivors of the disaster had not gone to Egypt (as many researchers theorize) but had “gone north to Germany”. He would further state that “true Germans were of Atlantean heritage”. While most, even those open to suggestions of Atlantis, reject his claims, it certainly galvanized many Germans to back the program. Which was, most likely, the ultimate aim.
However, Himmler would lead archeological expeditions all over the world. And always in places of antiquarian historical significance. These would include to such places as Scotland, France, and various places in the Caucasus Mountains, but also as far as north Africa, India, Tibet and other destinations in the Far East. We should also note, that Himmler is widely considered to be directly responsible for the implementation of strategies at the many concentration camps that still haunt much of Europe today. An example of how knowledge and interpretation can be twisted so horrifically.
What Were The Nazis Looking For In Ancient Sanskrit Texts?
A large part of the reason the Nazis underwent such archeological missions in India and the Far East was to learn and recover ancient Sanskrit texts. Their interest in these texts is, once again, both interesting itself while also extremely dark and disturbing at the same time. According to them, these texts would tell of a “superior” race of extraterrestrials, who in ancient times, conquered the country and then installed “a caste system” over which they would rule. While many, especially more mainstream scholars, reject Himmler’s perception or interpretation of the texts, several prominent researchers believe they do appear to tell a factual account of some kind of battle between alien or advanced civilizations in the Indus region in ancient times. And, as we mentioned above, what appear to be genuine nuts-and-bolts aerial crafts known as Vimanas. Might these ancient crafts have provided a blueprint for future Nazi projects?
What is also perhaps interesting here is Swastika (the Nazis actually called their symbol “Hakenkreutz”), although slightly different in design to the one used by the Nazis, originates from same cultures from the region as the texts they sought.
We should perhaps remember that as the Nazi war machine ran roughshod through Europe, annihilating all in its path, thousands upon thousands of paintings, sculptures, and numerous religious relics were looted and systematically sent back to Germany for “relocation”. Although much of these priceless pieces of art and relics were recovered in the immediate aftermath of the war, and some on occasion over the decades since, much of it is still missing and unaccounted for. With that in mind, then, it is perfectly reasonable to suspect there is at least the possibility that some ancient relics of consequence may sit among these looted treasures.
The More Discreet Hunt For Ancient Relics In The Mountains Of Europe
While the Nazis very much sent units on archeological missions to such faraway places as Egypt, Tunisia, India, and Tibet, with their depiction in the ‘Indiana Jones’ movies being basically accurate, they also spent considerable time carrying out more discreet missions in the woodlands and mountains ranges of Europe.
A recent discovery in the Caucasus Mountains of a bizarre skulls with distinct horn shapes would raise an eyebrow or two when a briefcase from the World War Two era came to light, discovered in the same vicinity, several years later. What’s more, the briefcase carried symbols suggesting its owner was there on behalf of the Ahnenerbe organization. When analysis results came back from the strange skulls they were of a species “unknown to science”. This, combined with Nazi Ahnenerbe briefcase and our knowledge of what those at the top of the organization were really looking to achieve, suggests to some that the Nazis may have indeed made contact with a non-human race. And one of the “inner Earth” to boot.
Incidentally, the discoverer of the skulls, Russian ethnographer, Vladimir Melikov certainly believes the skulls belong to “an alien species that visited Earth in the past”.
Perhaps even more interesting are the apparent secret Nazi missions, often led by Himmler himself, in the Beskidy Mountains in Poland. What makes the rumors even more interesting is that once captured, the area was put under direct SS command as opposed to the military. There were several uranium oxide mines in the area that many local peasants would work in under force. There were also, if the claims of Himmler’s quiet beliefs were true, an entrance to the inner Earth. What is further interesting are local legends, dating back centuries, refer to the region as “Agharta” or “The Underworld”.
The Nazi Bell
Perhaps one of the intriguing elements of the uranium oxide mines in Poland’s Beskidy Mountains and the direct SS presence around them may be connected to the apparent “secret weapon” of the Nazis, Die Glocke, or The Nazi Bell. This apparent otherworldly device constructed by some of the finest scientific minds under the Third Reich would first come to light in the 2000 book ‘The Truth About the Wonder Weapon’ by Polish author and research, Igor Witkowski.
Witkowski would claim to have made the discovery in the leaked files, given to him by a contact in the Polish intelligence services, of Nazi SS officer, Jakoc Sporrenberg. While Witkowski had permission to read and translate the documents, he could not reproduce them. For obvious reasons of respecting the wishes of his source lest he may help him again in the future, he would agree.
The drive of the Nazi Bell was anti-gravity technology and propulsion. According to Witkowski’s translations, the device would work by the counter-rotation of two cylinders. As this was taking place, an extremely volatile, heavy metal substance, Xerum-525, would enter the cylinders. Inside the interior surface of the bell was a “mirror-like” material. According to the leaked files, when the device was active, this mirror-interior would fill with “visions of the past or future”. Furthermore, while most experiments were carried out in “controlled” conditions, the Bell, set to certain levels had the ability to “bend time and space”. This, essentially means, if we can believe Witkowski’s translations, means the Nazis had a time-machine, although one, that while it could show visions of the past or the future, could only actually move, in terms of time, one way, forward.
“The Henge” – Testing Place Of The Nazi Bell?
The experiments and testing of the Nazi Bell, according to Witkowski, would take place at a site nicknamed “The Henge” where there are the remains of one-time Nazi military facility near to the Wenceslaus Mine along the Czech and Poland border. The object itself would stand around 15 feet high and around nine feet across. And was chained to the henge site. This would stop it from taking off and heading out into who knows where. It was very much a bell shape, hence the name. And had strange Egyptian-like writing along its base.
One thing appears certain, at least according to the leaked files. The Bell was a deadly device for anyone too close during testing. Which was the fate of several scientists. The “effect zone” was over 600 feet. Rather ominously, anyone or anything within this effect zone would be “greatly affected”. According to the brutal, cold details of the report, blood would gel and separate. Meanwhile, any animal tissue would be subject to the immediate formation of crystals. At the same time, plant-based life would instantly decompose into a “grease-like” substance.
Perhaps what is interesting about the Nazi Bell is another mysterious device of modern legend, The Chronovisor, a device housed in the Vatican that allows those who use it to see into the past. The person behind the device was Father Ernetti, a one-time physicist from Italy who, according to the claims, began work on the device in the early-1950s. One of the scientists from the international community was none other than Wernher Von Braun. While there is no evidence to link Von Braun with the Nazi Bell device, it is interesting that another similar device should appear less than a decade later, utilizing similar technology, under the advice of a former Nazi scientist.
Connections To The Kecksburg UFO Crash?
Although we won’t examine the actual event in detail here, an apparent UFO crash at Kecksburg, Pennsylvania in December 1965, almost twenty years after the disappearance of the Nazi Bell, and the main overseer of the project, Hans Kammler. Given the suggestion that the device had the ability to physically travel forward into the future, is it possible, however unlikely, that at the very end of the war, Kammler took himself and possibly several other close allies, and traveled forward in time, to the future, and to the relative safety of the United States?
The shape of the object in Kecksburg was distinctly like a bell. And furthermore, there were several reports of the Egyptian-style writing along the base of the object, much like the symbols on the base of Nazi Bell. As bizarre as that claim is, let’s say for a moment it was true. The technology, essentially a time-machine, albeit that can only travel forward but can view the past, is now in the hands of a shadow department of the United States intelligence department. At least, in speculative theory.
For his part, Witkowski believes the device would somehow make it out of Europe. And now resides somewhere in a “friendly” South American country. He also claims Kammler also escaped war-ravaged Europe with his prized project. We will come back to quite strong and valid connections of escaped Nazis finding refuge in South America.
Before we move on, though, check out the short video below. It looks at the possible connections between the Nazi Bell and the Kecksburg UFO crash.
Antarctica, Base 211, And The Entities Of The Inner Earth
If the Third Reich did progress into the inner Earth, a likely spot would be Antarctica. This mysterious, icy world remains off-limits to the vast majority of the world’s population. It would appear this only adds fuels to the plethora of conspiracies that surround it. Not least, those of secret Nazi bases and highly advanced flying machines. Not to mention a species that resides here, inside the Earth itself.
Was there a conspiracy regarding secret Nazi bases near or on Antarctica? If so, it would appear that planning for such a base was in motion before the start of the war. In 1938, for example, the Schwabenlard vessel would claim New Swabia as their territory. This was to “secure Germany’s whaling industry”. However, according to conspiracy theorists, including former Nazi sympathizer, Ernst Zundel, the real reason was to establish a base there. And to make contact with non-human entities that had lived there, secretly, for thousands of years. Furthermore, this facility – Base 211 – would serve as a sanctuary for many high-ranking Nazis after the war, including, for a time, Hitler himself.
The idea sounds crazy to most. The idea of an inner Earth and a race of people who might reside there, however, isn’t new. Or exclusive to the Third Reich. Indeed, many great minds and thinkers stretching back to the enlightenment period would ponder such a notion. Furthermore, numerous legends, particularly those from the Far East and Indus regions interestingly enough, speak of such the ancient kingdom of Shambhala located deep within the earth. Or perhaps many of the Buddhist legends that would speak of “super men and women”. Who would venture up from the Earth through tunnels and out through the caves.
Aliens, The Occult, And The Third Reich – A Case Study - PART II
Aliens, The Occult, And The Third Reich – A Case Study - PART II
Operation High-Jump And The Claims Of Admiral Richard Byrd
Although there is a downplaying of events now, the claims of Admiral Richard Byrd in March 1947 are worth examining. The mission would take place as “Operation High-Jump”. And was a multi-national effort, led by the United States, to establish a permanent base at the South Pole. Highly respected and decorated Air Force pilot, Byrd, would fly a reconnaissance flight over the sheets of ice. This occurred on the afternoon of 19th February 1947. However, instead of the thick sheets of ice there was instead “lush, green vegetation”. Furthermore, the area was alive with cattle and other animals running free.
His claims, which he would make in front of the world’s media no less, were shocking. There was, he would say, a “huge opening” in which he found himself “inside the Earth”. Even stranger, though, as he continued into this strange cavern, something took control of his aircraft. Suddenly, several strange saucer-shaped “flying crafts” were around his plane. Each donned a Nazi-style swastika. Without the use of his controls, Byrd would allow his plane to stop inside the Earth. When he looked around his surroundings, he could see running water, green vegetation, and even a sun.
Several weeks later, he would speak at several press conferences to reporters from around the world. His statements would appear in several newspapers. But it was one that ran in the ‘El Mercurio” newspaper in Chile that would perhaps cause the most concern. At least, it would seem for the United States military. He would state that “in case of a new war, the continental United States would be attacked by flying objects. Which could fly from pole to pole at incredible speed”.
German technology would figure into the end of the Second World War. The remaining German scientists and engineers were unofficially divvied up by the Soviet Union and the United States. The American side of this would go under the name “Operation Paperclip”. Those who would make the trip to the United States were officially Nazis through “forced membership”. And didn’t hold any such abhorrent views. Many, however, believe this to be a stretch of the truth at best. Much like many of the Japanese scientists who operated out of Unit 731 would have their war crimes “overlooked”, and in some cases all but wiped from the historical record, many would suspect the same of at least some of the Nazi Paperclip scientists.
It is easy to see why this happened. They did indeed have a common enemy in the Nazis. And even then, only because the Nazis had attacked the Soviet Union. Who had until then been supplying them with much-needed materials. Each knew, though, that their countries operated at vastly different ends of the political system. Neither could afford for the other to gain a significant advantage in terms of technological advancement.
For his part, Von Braun would state his reasons for dealing with the United States. In light of the V-2 rocket, he and his fellow scientist “knew we have created a new means of warfare. And the question as to what nation, to what victorious nation we were willing to entrust this brainchild of ours was a moral decision more than anything else”.
You can check out the short video below. It goes over the basics of Operation Paperclip in a little more detail.
The South America Connections
The conspiracies surrounding Antarctic and the Nazi presence around the South Pole are interesting enough. They take on another layer of significance, however, when we look at the extensive evidence of Nazi “settlements”. Particularly in such South American countries as Brazil, Chile, and perhaps most notably, Argentina. Even more so when we look at the plethora of UFO sightings in these countries since the early 1950s.
Are these sightings actually a continuation of alien-Nazi technology? Do they, in turn, share a connection to the aforementioned Operation Paperclip? Does this mean that for all intents and purposes, many of the Nazi scientists and engineers basically continued their research? From other locations around the world? Some of them directly for the governments of the west? While others, as “fugitives” that somehow escaped the claws of the supposedly finest intelligent services in the world.
We have examined before the claims that Hitler did, in fact, escape Berlin as opposed to taking his own life. If that was the case, then surely the “Fourth Reich” would have not been long in getting underway. Particularly if such pre-prepared bases as the alleged Base 211 were ready and at their disposal. It would also appear that by the time of his alleged “real” death in 1962, he was very much alone. All but abandoned by anyone with a connection to the Third Reich.
Still Many Unanswered If Controversial Questions!
Going back to the claims of possession, perhaps it is worth examining the memoires of Dr. Otto Lehmann. Lehmann claims to have treated Hitler in his final days, which he would spend in a lonely room in Argentina. According to his memoirs, he would often hear the one-time leader of the Third Reich. Crying and howling in anguish and mental torment. He would not ever dare to enter the room during these episodes. On one occasion, though, he had reason to shortly after.
He would claim to see pictures of the horrors of the concentration camps. And general death and destruction across much of Europe following the war. Was it possible that the Hitler, if we accept Lehmann’s claims, that lay withering away, eventually dying of a stroke at the age of 72-years-old, was now no longer under the control of “dark forces”? Are claims of possession more accurate than most of us would accept?
It is a higher controversial theory, no doubt. But what of the other high-ranking Nazis – those not already guaranteed safety under Operation Paperclip? Did they manage to assert their influence anywhere? Perhaps profiting from the shadows from technology, knowledge, and whatever other secrets that competing intelligence agencies coveted greatly. It is no doubt that much of the work started by scientists under the Nazis would continue in America. And help shape our modern world. How much and how far-reaching, and if there was still an ultimate agenda in place is perhaps open to debate.
Many Far-Reaching Influences In The Twentieth Century?
It is pure speculation, no doubt. But let’s return to the seemingly bizarre claims of the Nazis managing a successful landing on the Moon. In the early 1940s, no less. Perhaps we should look at the person largely seen as the “man who put America on the Moon”. Werner Von Braun, the former Nazi engineer would transplant himself to the United States as part of Operation Paperclip. There is some doubt as to just how involved and how much sympathy Von Braun had for the Nazi regime. Many accept his membership of the party was not voluntary. Certainly if he wished to continue his scientific work. He is still a very high-ranking Nazi to go on to hold such a high-ranking position in post-war America.
Might he have been more than aware of the Nazi base on the Moon? Might the moon missions have been nothing more than a continuation of the Nazi missions from nearly three decades earlier? Maybe this also explains why, after several successful missions, the moon landing project suddenly ceased with little explanation. This, despite the fact that the next three mission (at the time) already received cleared costings. If this was the case, might whatever clandestine mission have been accomplished? And now the world’s attention, and indeed their interest in the moon landings, required diverting elsewhere?
Might this also explain the need to keep the world’s “prying eyes” away from Antarctica? Might this alleged launch point set up by the Nazis now be in use by the world’s shadow government? Maybe there was also a connection to the alien abduction phenomenon that would begin in the sixties. And then surge forward over the following decades?
So, With All This Technology, Why Didn’t The Third Reich Win The War?
Many skeptics ask, quite rightly, one particular question. If the Nazis did indeed have access to such advanced technology, then why did they not win the war? Why did they not create the (much talked about – which is interesting enough) “Super-weapon” and wipe out their enemies once and for all?
There are reasons for this apparent lack of advancement. They were still working, we would imagine, with advanced technology. One so far ahead of their understanding that any progression would still be relatively slow. With this in mind, we should perhaps go back to the sheer number of advancements of the Nazis. Be it weapons, submarines, or jets produced during the war years. It would appear that such Nazi scientists were under orders to reverse what could be done quickly. Their weapons were no doubt in advance of everyone else. The war, though, was still a constant drain on the regime just as it was for the Allies.
They were undoubtedly looking to develop such a weapon that would “end the war”. In the meantime, though, they required “fast-turnaround” tech, ready for immediate use on the battlefield. And, what of the alleged Nazi Bell? While they could view the past, if the leaked documents are accurate, they couldn’t physically travel there. In short, they couldn’t change or alter the past. With that in mind, any traveling forward would trap the traveler in their new time. With no help of getting back.
Perhaps, had the war continued just a year longer, as speculative as it is, that breakthrough might have been realized? Maybe such a weapon nicknamed the “New York Rocket” would have come to fruition? Or maybe their finest scientists would achieve traveling back in time instead of only forward.
PRE-ADAMITES: DID HUMANS INHABIT EARTH BEFORE ADAM AND EVE?
PRE-ADAMITES: DID HUMANS INHABIT EARTH BEFORE ADAM AND EVE?
The timeline of human existence has captured the attention of philosophers, scientists, and ordinary, curious people throughout the ages. Of course, there is the famous tale of Adam and Eve, but were they truly the first humans to walk the Earth? There is a growing body of research that suggests modern humans were not the first intelligent beings to live on our planet.
IS IT POSSIBLE PRE-ADAMITES EXISTED?
There are groups from all belief systems — Christians, conspiracy theorists, alien researchers, evolutionists, and more — who believe pre-Adamites (humans or intelligent beings that walked the Earth before Adam) actually existed.
The idea of the possibility of a pre-Adamite civilization and discussion about the origin of the human race is not a new one. Debates on the topic have been taking place since 170 AD. Over the years, many theories swirled about, enticing logical and romantic thinkers alike to explore further, look deeper, and question what they had been taught.
THE CHRISTIAN DEBATE
A growing number of Christians and people of other faiths believe modern-day humans were not the first — and possibly are not the last.
The Bible has clear passages about events that have taken place and that will take place at some point in the future, stating human existence operates on a 7,000-year cycle. Based on scripture now, the Earth is only a little over 6,000 years old. However, a great deal of scientific evidence indicates it is much, much older.
The Bible does not specifically state Adam was the first man ever to walk the Earth. There are too many gaps in the information contained in that chapter to get a clear picture.
Consider the account of Noah and the Great Flood. All humans were wiped out, except for Noah and his family. It’s quite possible a new Adam and Eve were born out of this catastrophe, starting the cycle anew. Therefore, it’s not entirely irrational to have doubts over whether or not Adam and Eve were truly the first humans on Earth.
In the book of Genesis, we read the Earth was without form and void — as if it had experienced a great catastrophe. We know from scripture that water already covered the Earth, and scientists are now finding, under the great bodies of water of the world, evidence of entire civilizations. These findings raise more questions than answers. How do we mesh science with scripture? Is it possible?
Many events documented in the biblical texts seem to be supported by science. Can these two seemingly oppositional systems coexist and come together to give us a more complete picture of where we came from?
Consider that the original biblical texts have been translated repeatedly. The version we use today has only been around since the 1600s, and the Catholic church uses a heavy hand in changing the scripture and the structure of the book itself. If you stop and think about it, perhaps we’ve lost something in all the edits and translations. Maybe we don’t have the whole story.
Keep in mind, there is nothing new under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9).
THE SCIENTIFIC DEBATE
Traditionally, science and religion are diametrically opposed, with religion calling for faith and science calling for fact. However, scientific findings in recent years seem to be closing that gap.
Scientists present evidence that dinosaurs once roamed the Earth. Christians open their Bibles to the book of Job to read about what appears to be dinosaurs coexisting with humans. More recently found civilizations and objects defy all scientific and biblical teaching.
Throughout the world, ancient cities are being discovered; not on mountaintops or in forests, but under the ocean. These include:
Port Royal, Jamaica
Lion City of Quiandao Lake, China
Nero’s sunken city
Cleopatra’s Palace in Alexandria, Egypt, and Thonis-Heracleion in Egypt
Sunken city of Cuba
Yonaguni Monument, Japan
What are these ancient underwater cities? Are they evidence of a pre-Adamite civilization? Many of them have elaborate structures and display a level of technology scientists say was not possible at the time they would have been in use. Could carbon dating and other methods scientists use to date materials really be that far off? That’s not just a decade or two but a multi-billion-year error. Scientists believe they have definitive evidence, or are at least very close, to support their timelines.
Some scientists believe they have found evidence of the inhabitants of some of these civilizations. A flash frozen civilization in Antarctica is of particular interest. The skeletons looked vaguely human except for the elongated skulls. Who were they? What were they? Scientists speculate an ancient race that has long since died out.
Conspiracy theorists, on the other hand, believe they are an alien race that came here to escape their dying planet. They set up their civilizations and “seeded” the Earth. That is what we humans are.
Everyone has a story, a theory about what took place. The truth is, there are very strange things on this planet that cannot be explained by our current understanding of history, science, technology, and culture. What do we do? We press on. We continue to explore. We keep our minds open and keep searching for the truth.
Regardless of our belief systems, nothing can be learned by blindly walking through life ignoring what does not fit in the history books. Skeptics must acknowledge these ancient civilizations are real, and they were left here for a reason. Why weren’t they destroyed? Is this part of an elaborate puzzle, a higher test to separate the wheat from the chaff?
As for the scientists, are they doing all they can? Is science truly utilizing all available resources to explore these civilizations and search for clues that would change the way we view society and the world? The fact that these structures and entire cities were left behind and buried, only for us to find them so many years later, suggests intent.
When you are deciding what to believe, the greatest tool that can be sharpened and utilized is your critical thinking.

Spacious tunnels that may have been used for smuggling in Chinese-Cuban prostitutes during Prohibition have been discovered during construction in Florida.
There's been talk about mysterious passageways underneath the suburb of Ybor City in Central Florida going back about 20 years, University of Southern Florida - St. Petersburg professor Emeritus of history Dr. Gary Mormino told DailyMail.com.
Mormino, 71, who has been researching the history of Ybor City for about 40 years, said the first tunnels of this kind were unearthed about two decades ago when work was being down below a Blue Ribbon grocery store.
'That provoked the question, "Why would you build a tunnel in an area that has a water table of about one foot below sea level?"'
While some have guessed the underground passages may have been used by bootleggers, Mormino said that doesn't make sense, and it's more likely they were used to bring in prostitutes or Chinese laborers from Cuba.
Spacious tunnels that may have been used for smuggling in Chinese-Cuban prostitutes during Prohibition have been discovered during construction in Tampa, Florida's Ybor City
These latest tunnels were found earlier this week near the Old Florida Brewery, close to East 6th Avenue and Noccio Parkway, while construction was being done on a new office building.
Workers were tearing down a warehouse when they found the hidden passage, tall enough to stand up in with a rounded ceiling.
Mormino described them as, 'nothing too remarkable to look at,' flat on the bottom, and wide, making them unsuitable as a sewage system, and all the more interesting to those wondering why they exist.
History professor and researcher Dr. Gary Mormino described the tunnels to DailyMail.com as, 'nothing too remarkable to look at,' flat on the bottom, and wide, making them unsuitable as a sewage system, and all the more interesting to those wondering why they exist
'At this point, I'm looking at ruling things out,' he said. 'I'm asking myself, "What were the tunnels not used for?"'
While some are quick to guess they may have been used to transport bootlegged alcohol during the 1920s and early 1930s, Mormino said that doesn't make any sense, either.
'I interviewed a lot of people in the 1970s and '80s who would have been involved in bootlegging of '20s and '30s and they've all said the only people who feared the police were those who weren't involved in the rackets' he said. 'If you paid off the police, you were fine.'
Mormino shared a story about one of his interview subjects named Sam, who said his father was an Italian bootlegger, who would receive a call once each month from the police telling him he had to come in and be arrested and pay his fines.
Once there, Sam said the police would ask his father what name he wanted to be arrested under 'this time,' and the next day the front page of the newspaper would read, 'Seven Italian bootleggers arrested,' as part of a ruse intended to appease the public.
In fact, Mormino said Sam also told him he used to deliver crates of bootlegged alcohol to shops and when the police were they, they would open the door and help him carry the boxes in, praising him for being such an enterprising young man.
So, Mormino has determined, the tunnels probably weren't used for bootlegging.
Instead, he said, it's far more likely they were used for 'white slavery related to bringing women across interstate lines for immoral purposes,' along with smuggling in Chinese laborers and Chinese-Cuban prostitutes.
Mormino said Ybor City has had a large Chinese-Cuban population dating back to 1886.
'Chinese people were brought to Cuba after slavery ended in late 19th century to replace slaves and work in the sugar industry,' Mormino said.
The professor guessed that around that time, city of Tampa officials may have been in on creating the tunnels which would have otherwise been a massive and expensive undertaking for a criminal enterprise.
While some are quick to guess they may have been used to transport bootlegged alcohol during the 1920s and early 1930s, Mormino said that doesn't make any sense, because police were so 'in on it' that tunnels wouldn't have been necessary; In this undated photo federal authorities are shown unearthing a buried whiskey cache in the backyard of a Ybor City home
Mormino believes that local leaders may have extending the passages down to the port
'Basically, corrupt politics likely allowed the criminal elements to use those tunnels as part of a vast, interconnected network,' he said.
But, Mormino made sure to mention, that while it's fun to guess about what may have gone on in those hidden passageways all those years ago, anything anyone has come up with is just a guess.
'I don't know if we'll ever know the truth, to be honest,' Mormino said. 'It's a rather elusive story now.
Mormino told DailyMail.com they were likely part of a criminal network, and that Ybor City officials would have had to be in on the construction; Ybor City's 7th Avenue Historic Street is pictured in a file photo from November 28, 2016
Unexplained mass animal deaths just don’t seem to get the headlines they should. Shouldn’t we be worried when large groups of animalsfall from the sky or wash up on shorewith no discernible cause of death? These unexplained animal deaths appear to be getting more common. Couple that with the World Wildlife Fund’s recent data demonstrating that 60% of vertebrate life has been lost in the last four decades, and it’s easy to imagine the type of future envisioned in Blade Runnerand other sci-fi in which humans are the last living things on Earth. Bye bye, bacon.
Eat as much as possible while you can.
The latest mysterious mass animal death to drive a nail in the animal kingdom’s coffin occured in Hillsboro, Oregon this month where dozens of birds from four different species were found dead with “no obvious signs of death.” Wildlife agencies are currently testing the birds to try and determine a cause of death, but as in other recent mass bird suicide events and deaths, the cause will likely remain elusive.
The bird suicides are the most troubling. Entire flocks have been seen to dive bomb the ground for no reason.
The dead birds in Hillsboro include dozens of red-winged blackbirds and European starlings, a red-tailed hawk, and a bald eagle. It’s quite uncommon for so many birds to die at once, and the fact that several different species were involved is even more anomalous. Bob Sallinger, the Conservation Director at Audubon Society of Portland, believes the birds may have been unintentionally poisoned, but other residents aren’t so sure. One resident, who refused to speak on camera, toldlocal news outlet KPTV that he has been finding dead birds on his property ever since a new electrical transformer was installed in a nearby field.
All of the new types of radiation we’ve introduced to the world can’t be good for animals.
Could electromagnetic fields generated by telecommunications or electric grid infrastructure be affecting birds’ internal navigation mechanisms?

Could something similar be causing these recent bird deaths and suicides?
