A mysterious green light seen above Nutley



On May 17, 2013, in the township of Nutley (Essex County, in the state of New Jersey), a strange green light has been photographed by a resident.

Witness has given a detailed description of the unidentified flying object. According to him, this UFO cannot be an airplane, an airship and a simple or a Chinese lantern. But what is it?

Testimony

What I saw was something unknown; the body was not a solid shape, it was curvy and looked like membrane or textured.

It had a tiny red light on top and bottom light that was blinking.

It could have been a blimp, but I could not see anywhere for a pilot to sit. There was no undercarriage, it was a solid shape.

The object was huge, but I could see not any markings on it. It was being illuminated from within, and moving very slowly.

It was very clear, no markings, but had a textured skin, like scales, that’s why I thought it was a blimp of some type.

I saw no way for it to be powered, with nothing underneath it, just a blinking light.

I took photos with iPhone. I will post three images. (two shown here) Original, a blown up image and an original.

UFO photographed above Jenson, Kentucky



On August 31, 2011, two friends talked quietly when, one of them, have taken a strange photo above the city of Jenson (in the State of Kentucky). In fact, on this picture, we can see a horseshoe-shaped UFO!

Strange object seems to emit green lights and, according to their testimony, it was perfectly peaceful. This case has been reported at MUFON for a thorough investigation.

Witness statement

I did not take these photos. My friend was visiting and we were sitting around talking. I don't know what brought up the subject but it went to UFOs.

My friend asked "Did I ever show you the picture I got on my iPod?" I said no. She said she took it 2 years ago over Jenson, Ky.

She had just bought the iPod and heard that it took really good photos so she went outside and started taking photos of the clouds in the night sky.

She came back in and checked them. Most were black but she noticed one that had a light in the bottom corner. She zoomed in on it [which is the enlarged one] and saw what it was.

She did not see or hear anything at the time she took it. She only showed it to her family and my son before showing me. She got a new iPod [or cell phone, I don’t know which} and had everything transferred over to the new one.

I could not believe what I was seeing when I first saw it. I asked her if she cared if I sent it to you and she said no.

She is not one to make up stuff or fake things. She is a mother of 3 working to get her degree in physical therapy.

She’s very level headed and admits she does not know what it is. I asked her if "UFO" ever came to mind and she said yes but was not sure.

So here are the pictures. I hope you can find out what it is. You can contact me if you want to talk to her about it.

The pope and the devil: Is Francis an exorcist?



VATICAN CITY — Is Pope Francis an exorcist?

The question has been swirling ever since Francis laid his hands Sunday on the head of a young man after celebrating Mass in St. Peter's Square. The young man heaved deeply a half-dozen times, shook, and he then slumped in his wheelchair as Francis prayed over him.

The television station of the Italian bishops' conference said it had surveyed exorcists, who agreed there was "no doubt" that Francis either performed an exorcism or a prayer to free the man from the devil.

The Vatican was more cautious Tuesday. In a statement, it said Francis "didn't intend to perform any exorcism. But as he often does for the sick or suffering, he simply intended to pray for someone who was suffering who was presented to him."

Fueling the speculation is Francis' obsession with Satan, a frequent subject of his homilies, and an apparent surge in demand for exorcisms among the faithful despite the irreverent treatment the rite often receives from Hollywood.

Who can forget the green vomit and the spinning head of the possessed girl in the 1973 cult classic "The Exorcist?"

In his very first homily as pope on March 14, Francis warned cardinals gathered in the Sistine Chapel the day after he was elected that "he who doesn't pray to the Lord prays to the devil."

He has since mentioned the devil on a handful of occasions, most recently in a May 4 homily when in his morning Mass in the Vatican hotel chapel he spoke of the need for dialogue — except with Satan.
"With the prince of this world you can't have dialogue: let this be clear!" he warned.

Experts said Francis' frequent invocation of the devil is a reflection both of his Jesuit spirituality, his Latin American roots — and a reflection of a Catholic Church weakened by secularization.

"The devil's influence and presence in the world seems to fluctuate in quantity inversely proportionate to the presence of Christian faith," said the Rev. Robert Gahl, a theologian at Rome's Pontifical Holy Cross University. "So, one would expect an upswing in his malicious activity in the wake of de-Christianization and secularization" in the world and a surge in things like drug use, pornography and superstition.

In recent years, Rome's pontifical universities have hosted several courses for would-be exorcists on the rite, updated in 1998 and contained in a little red leather-bound booklet. The rite is relatively brief, consisting of blessings with holy water, prayers and an interrogation of the devil in which the exorcist demands to know the devil's name and when it will leave the possessed person.

Only a priest authorized by a bishop can perform an exorcism, and canon law specifies that the exorcist must be "endowed with piety, knowledge, prudence and integrity."

While belief in the devil is consistent with church teaching, the Holy See does urge prudence, particularly to ensure that the afflicted person isn't merely psychologically ill.

The Rev. Giulio Maspero, a Rome-based systematic theologian who has witnessed or participated in more than a dozen exorcisms, says he's certain that Francis' prayer on Sunday was either a full-fledged exorcism or a prayer to "liberate" the young man from a demonic possession. He noted that the placement of the pope's hands on the man's head was the "typical position" for an exorcist to use.

"When you witness something like that — for me it was shocking — I could feel the power of prayer," he said in a phone interview, speaking of his own experiences.

Maspero said it was particularly symbolic that Francis' purported exorcism occurred on Pentecost, an important feast day for the church when the faithful believe Jesus' apostles received the fullness of the Holy Spirit.

"The Holy Spirit is connected to the exorcism because ... it is the manifestation of how God is present among us and in our world," he said.

While the Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, sought to tamper suggestions that what occurred was a full-fledged exorcism, he didn't deny it either, saying merely that Francis hadn't "intended" to perform one.

Italian newspapers noted that the late Pope John Paul II performed an exorcism in 1982 — near the same spot where Francis prayed over the young disabled man on Sunday.

A rodent discovered on Mars by NASA!



In March 2013, a Japanese has doing a very strange discovery by looking photos taken by NASA on Mars Planet. In fact, he would have found a real animal living on this inhospitable place!

On this photo, we can clearly see a strange and little creature, hide among the several stones. It looks like a mammal (as a rodent) or a big reptile. We can note that it has 4 legs, a long and fine tail and a little head.

But, if alive, how this animal can survive on this uninhabitable planet? For Scott C. Waring, a famous ufologist, it’s the NASA that introduces animals on Mars to do several experiences!

Erie Pennsylvania's first recorded Haunted House



The first colonists to Erie Pennsylvania arrived in the mid 18thCentury, building a small town adjacent to the newly constructed French Fort Presque Isle. With wars and migrations soon to follow, English settlers would also arrive in the area by the end of that century and build a permanent settlement.

Since the time of those first settlers Erie’s history has been awash with folklore tales of mysterious places where the paranormal seems to manifest itself quite frequently.
Be it cursed Indian burial grounds or old dwellings where spectral apparitions of the past startle the present owners; Erie has a rich history of unexplained phenomena.

However, it was not until the late 19thcentury did one of these locations rise to prominence in the imagination of the local populace to a point where it would become infamous. It was in name if not in fact Erie’s first haunted house. And few today have ever heard of it, since it was long ago lost to popular memory for those who encountered its horrors have long turned to dust. This lost Erie legend is the old Crowley Mansion of Harborcreek.

The house was located on the west side of Walbridge Road, less than a hundred yards south of East Lake Road. It was built by a member of East Erie’s first pioneer families, the Crowleys. Thomas Crowley, b. 1789, came to Erie in 1821 or 1822, as did his younger brother Michael. Thomas and his wife Ellen Ahern had several children in Ireland and several more in Pennsylvania, as late at 1836. Michael married a girl from a family from New York State and Canada. Michael's son Thomas was Erie police chief in the 1860s and 70s. The Crowley family very were wealthy and owned considerable property and built the brick mansion as their family homestead. Thomas's eldest son Bartholomew, 1813(4)-1897, lived with his growing family on the property. Beautifully manicured, the grounds of the mansion boasted a diverse orchard and lush gardens.

Tragedy struck 80 year old Bartholomew and his daughter in 1893 when a team of burglars broke in and pulled off a home invasion, pouring oil over him and lighting him afire and threatening to cut the rings off his daughter's fingers. The original report can be viewed in this copy of the November 3rd 1893 Buffalo Express.

As time marched on and the Crowley family grew, the pioneers’ children moved on and the estate was purchased by another family. The ancient legend told by local residents was that not long after moving into the mansion the husband and wife began to fight often and began to despise one another. When typhoid fever began to break out in the community, the husband was gravely stricken. A skilled local doctor attended the man and soon he was on his way to a healthy recovery. One of the instructions given the wife was that the man was not to be fed any salty foods, for they could not only halt the recovery process, but they could actually prove to be fatal to her husband.

The story goes that this advice by the doctor gave the wife a ghoulish idea. She would rid herself of her loathsome husband by feeding him rich meals that contained large quantities of salt. Her unsuspecting husband ate the heavily seasoned meals with gusto every day. After one excessively salty dinner of corned beef the husband died just before midnight that very evening. From that day forward the ghost of the husband was said to manifest itself in the house just as the clock stuck midnight. Some of these were said to be extremely violent, one night a china cabinet in the main dining room where the husband often dined shook so violently that all the dishes inside were smashed to pieces. Oddly enough the glass housing of the cabinet was untouched. It was not long after this that the wife moved out of the house never to return.

Others lived in the house afterwards, but none of them stayed very long. Whether it was because of paranormal activity or just the ominous story itself that made the mansion abhorred none can say. But soon none wanted to live in the haunted house on Walbridge Road.

For over fifty years the mansion remained unoccupied and soon time took its toll on the building and it went into disrepair and eventual ruin. The beautiful orchards soon became overgrown with weeds and the trees withered and died. The once elegant mansion became an ominous and foreboding presence of desolation which lived up to its disturbing reputation.
Children shunned the house and passersby would claim to see ethereal figures staring out at them from the mansions broken windows.

John G. Carney in his 1958 book “Tales of Old Erie” tells that in the years before the mansion was torn down the legends began to flourish once more. A new generation had used the building as a place to prove their bravery by trespassing its grounds and playing practical jokes on one another.

The land on which the mansion once stood is now an abandoned field, given over to weeds and wild overgrowth. There still is a sense of desolation and sadness to the area that one cannot quite explain. You can sense a sadness, a dreadful emptiness there that is somewhat otherworldly. Perhaps the long betrayed spirit of the murdered husband still abides there, mourning his betrayal at the hands of one who promised to love him forever.

Chinese-built ghost town in Angola


The BBC's Louise Redvers reports on the ghost town of Kilamba, Angola, a horrendously expensive high-rise enclave built by Chinese companies on a line of credit secured with Angolan oil, which has only seen 220 apartments out of 2800 sold. Kilamba is the most ambitious of several new towns being built outside of existing Angoloan cities by Chinese firms.

It's like a bizarro-world version of the Keynsian idea of getting the economy going by paying one group of laborers to dig holes and another to fill them in. But in this case, one group of workers are paid to pump oil, which is offshored to China. In exchange, a group of Chinese workers is paid to build a gate-guarded enclave for a non-existent pool of mega-rich locals that no one can afford to live in, and which gradually turns into a massive liability. Profit!

The place is eerily quiet, voices bouncing off all the fresh concrete and wide-open tarred roads.

There are hardly any cars and even fewer people, just dozens of repetitive rows of multi-coloured apartment buildings, their shutters sealed and their balconies empty.

Only a handful of the commercial units are occupied, mostly by utility companies, but there are no actual shops on site, and so - with the exception of a new hypermarket located at one entrance - there is nowhere to buy food.

After driving around for nearly 15 minutes and seeing no-one apart from Chinese labourers, many of whom appear to live in containers next to the site, I came across a tiny pocket of life at a school.

It opened six months ago, bussing in its pupils in from outlying areas because there are no children living on site to attend.

La Toya Jackson Claims She's Seen Michael's Ghost


The undisputed random of the Jackson clan (and that's saying something), La Toya, says the ghost of her late brother Michael has been visiting the family dressed in the white pearl beads he wore in the coffin.

The 53-year-old onetime Playboy cover girl tells Woman's Day, Michael has appeared "in the curtains" while the lights were out.

"His eyes were open and he appeared peaceful. I turned the lights on and asked, 'Michael, do you wish to go to the other side?'," she says.

La Toya, who once called a midnight press conference in Tel Aviv to declare she'd harboured for years the secret that Michael was a child molester, also claims her brother's ghost has flicked the lights on in his house to let her know he's there.

La Toya says her manager Jeffre Phillips and sister Janet have also seen the star's spirit but mother Katherine, a strict Jehovah's Witness, won't accept that her son's ghost walks the earth.

A former US Senator has seen a disc-shaped UFO


One of the most powerful U.S. senators in modern history actually eye-witnessed two UFO’s while on a fact-finding trip through Russia in 1955—and the U.S. government kept the sightings a secret for more than three decades.  The incredible encounter is detailed in 12 TOP SECRET CIA, FBI, and Air Force reports—and declassified in 1985.  Those startling reports reveal that Senator Richard B. Russell, Jr. (D-GA)—then chairman of the Armed Services Committee—was on a Soviet train when he spotted a disc-shaped craft taking off near the tracks.  He hurriedly called his military aide and interpreter to the window—and they saw the UFO, plus another one that appeared a minute later.  The astonished trio reported the sightings to the U.S. Air Force as soon as they were out of Russia.

The three observers were firmly convinced that they saw a genuine flying disc,” says an Air Force Intelligence report, dated October 14, 1955, and classified TOP SECRET at the time.  Senator Russell served 38 years in the Senate.  He was its senior, and one of the most influential, senators at the time of his death in 1971.  He was chairman of the Armed Services Committee from 1951 to 1969, and unsuccessfully sought the Democratic Presidential nomination in 1952.  The  mind-boggling documents detailing his UFO encounter were made available by the Fund for UFO Research and its chaiman, Dr. Bruce Maccabee.  Several key documents were obtained by the group through the Freedom of Information Act.  “These long secret documents are of major importance because they show for the first time that one of the most powerful U.S. Senators witnessed and reported a UFO,” said Dr. Maccabee.

The Air Force Intelligence report says Russell and his two traveling companions spotted the UFO’s on October 4, 1955, while traveling by rail across Russia’s Transcaucasus region.  “One disc ascended almost vertically, at a relatively slow speed, with its outer surface revolving slowly to the right, to an altitude of about 6000 feet, where its speed then increased sharply as it headed north,” the report states.  “The second flying disc was seen performing the same actions about one minute later.  The take-off area was about 1-2 miles south of the rail line…

Russell “saw the first flying disc ascend and pass over the train,” and went “rushing in to get Mr Efron (Ruben Efron, his interpreter) and Col. Hathaway (Col. E. U. Hathaway, his aide) to see it,” the report said.  Col. Hathaway stated that he got to the window with the Senator in time to see the first (UFO), while Mr. Efron said that he got only a short glimpse of the first.  However, all three saw the second disc and all agreed that they saw the same round, disc-shaped craft…as the first.”  The Air Force report was written by Lieut. Col. Thomas Ryan, who interviewed Senator Russell’s companions in Prague, Czechoslovakia, on October 13, after they arrived there from Russia shortly after the sighting.

In his report, Col. Ryan called the sightings “an eyewitness account of the ascent and flight of an unconventional craft…by three highly reliable United States observers.  He added that Col. Hathaway led off his account of the sightings by saying:  “I doubt if your going to believe this, but we all saw it.  Senator Russell was the first to see this flying disc…we’ve been told for years that there isn’t such a thing, but all of us saw it…

CIA documents show that the agency later interviewed the three eyewitnesses in the Russell party—and also a fourth person, unidentified in the reports, who had seen the UFO’s.  An eyewitness—whose name was blacked out on the CIA report prior to its declassification—said one of the UFO’s  “had a slight dome on top” and also a “white light on top.”  The edge of the disc was glowing pinkish-white, he added.  The UFO rose “vertically with the glow moving slowly around the perimeter in a clockwise direction, giving the appearance of a pinwheel.”

Interpreter Ruben Efron told the CIA that visibility was excellent.  As one UFO approached the train, he said, “the object gave the impression of gliding.  No noise was heard and no exhaust was heard, and no exhaust glow or trail was seen by me.”  After the encounter, Senator Russell told the men with him:  “We saw a flying disc.  I wanted you boys to see it so that I would have witnesses,” according to the CIA documents.  And an FBI memo, dated November 4, 1955, also discusses the sighting—and admitted Col. Hathaway’s testimony “would support existence of a flying disc…”  Dr. Maccabee, of the Fund for UFO Research, believes that Senator Russell and his group never publicly revealed their incredible sightings “because they were no doubt advised not to talk.  These documents provide startling new evidence that UFO’s exist.”

Mr. Tom Towers, in his January 20, 1957, column, “Aviation News,” for the Los Angeles, CA, Examiner, printed the contents of a letter from Senator Russell, which was in response to a request for information about the sightings in Russia.  Mr. Towers had originally contacted Senator Russell’s office by letter with the request that he be given permission to “break” the story.  The Senator wrote:  “Permit me to acknowledge your letters relative to reports that have come to you regarding aerial objects seen in Europe last year.  I received your letter, but I have discussed this matter with the affected agencies of the government, and they are of the opinion that it is not wise to publicize this matter at this time.  I regret very much that I am unable to be of assistance to you.”  The letter was dated 17 January, 1956.

White House had suppressed evidence of ETs say a senator


Even as most Americans wonder what planet politicians are from, is it possible that the government is squelching evidence of extraterrestrials visiting Earth? One former presidential hopeful says yes – and that the conspiracy goes all the way to the top.

Former Sen. Mike Gravel (D-Alaska) says the White House has helped keep the truth about the “extraterrestrial influence that is investigating our planet” from the public.

“It goes right to the White House, and of course, once the White House takes a position, ‘well there's nothing going on’...it just goes down the chain of command, everyone stands toe,” Gravel tells Top Line.

Gravel is one of six former congress representatives who were paid $20,000 by the UFO advocacy group Paradigm Research to participate in a Congressional-style Citizen Hearing on Disclosure in Washington this week, where witness after witness has presented first-hand accounts of UFO sightings and extraterrestrial visits.

Gravel says the strongest accounts of alien encounters are from former military officers, such as retired Air Force Capt. Robert Salas, who testified that UFOs temporarily disabled nuclear weapons on his watch.

“The smoking gun of the whole issue, which is when they saw hovering space craft in Wyoming and South Dakota over the ICBM missile silos that the missiles couldn't work,” Gravel says.

Gravel says the media has aided what he sees as a government cover-up by not taking reports of ET encounters seriously.

“What we're faced with here is, in areas of the media, and the government too, an effort to marginalize and ridicule people who have specific knowledge,” he says.

When asked about the fact that he was compensated for his participation in the hearing, Gravel says it did not influence him to agree with the testimony.

“This is an opportunity which I've taken to focus on this issue for an entire week and the preparation I made in coming to it, for my enrichment that's very important,” Gravel says.

For a ride into the outer limits of human knowledge on the possibility of alien life, and to hear how Gravel thinks the world should treat potential alien visitors, come along for this expedition of Top Line.

Two Triangles Photographed over Israel


On March 14, 2013 after 18:00, an Israeli has taken in photo two triangular UFO that flew over the moshav of Kfar Bin Nun (in central Israel).

Each of them was composed of three lights multicolor.  According to witness, observation had lasted about 90 minutes and movements of the two objects were perfectly synchronized!

Testimony

t was on my birthday, I came home not long after 18:00. I noticed something in the sky; at first I thought that they were airplanes but there was no noise and they circled too long above my village.

I can't say that it was a true circular path, but they were going around and around and every minute they would almost touch each other and then continue again and again.

Each of them had 3 apparent lights. The lights would go on and off, not blinking, more like fade in and fade out.

The two objects were perfectly synchronized with the fade-in-fade-out of the lights.

I have a Canon 40D and a Canon 70-200 2.8 IS lens. I immediately ran and started taking photos. It was much harder than I thought it would be. It was too dark, hard to focus, almost no stars, trees or clouds; just plain dark.

I tried recording a video of it, but the Sony would not focus on it. I did record a few seconds with a different camcorder that had manual focus (I just noticed it before they left).

Anyway, I took many photos but it’s hard to tell what it was from them. For approximately 90 mins they were circling around the village and then suddenly they started drifting west until they were too far away to see.

There was also an army helicopter (pretty common in Israel), but it was flying much lower than the objects. My family was mad at me for staying outside instead of celebrating my birthday.

I'm attaching some photos from my 40D.
