A black shadow haunts a parsonage in Leicester

A black shadow haunts a parsonage in Leicester

Old buildings often have rich, sometimes tormented, history. Maybe that's why these places are sometimes haunted. A presbytery, located not far from Leicester (in England), would thus be inhabited by a mysterious ghost.

In the small village of Walton-Le-Wolds, there is a large rectory with 30 rooms. According to Reverend Thomas R. Williams, a strange "black shadow" lurks in the halls of this building. Many witnesses would have seen him. It is said that when this ghost walks through a room, the air cools dramatically.

No one knows the identity of this spirit. The Reverend says he is in no way malicious. He explains that during his life he had already been called upon to cast out spirits using his holy water.

However, the clergyman explains that he did not see this ghost with his own eyes. “Perhaps it's be cause I do not wholly believe in ghosts,” he concludes.

A vampire terrifies inhabitant in a Romanian village

A vampire terrifies inhabitant in a Romanian village

In Romanian mythology, Strigoi are troubled spirits who risen from the grave. These terrifying creatures are links with modern vampirism. Some people claim to have seen real strigoi or have been attacked by them.

On Reddit, an user known as ‘szyly’ said that his great grandmother was confronted with strigoi while she was young. Here is the story:

Romanians believe that vampires exist. We call them strigoi. “The ones who scream” that’s the translation of the word. Strigoi are evil spirits that come at night to torment people by calling out their names. Strigoi are thirsty for blood just as vampires. They can come in human or animal form. Strigoi are completely free on the Saint Andrew’s Night. 30th of November to be exact. Our type of Halloween. My Great grandmother told my mom that she heard a strigoi calling out her name. She said that it was very important to remain silent otherwise bad things could happen. They have the power to cause health issues to the people who respond to their calling.

When my mom was a child the whole community along with the priest went to the cemetery to kill a vampire. A man from the village died. He was a sinner or so everyone said. His family started to experience weird stuff. They would hear him calling out their names. Soon all the members of the family fell ill. That’s how they decided that their relative was a “strigoi”. My mother remembers that they used a wood stake to kill that creature. She remembers some noises coming from the grave. My great grandmother was there too. She said that the man looked like he was sleeping even though there were 6 months since he was deceased.

Vampires have been popularized by the Irish author Bram Stoker and his horror novel Dracula. Yet, underlying that old legend is some truth…

Crescent-shaped UFO caught near the Space Station

On December 6, 2020, International Space Station was visited by UFO. On these images caught by NASA camaras, we can see a golden crescent-shaped UFO come close to the Space Station.

According to the ufologist Scott C. Waring, the man who discovered this UFO, aliens are interested by spatial progress.

He explains on his blog:

The object is golden in color and shaped unlike anything I have ever seen before. The UFO was not cloaked or invisible, but instead was hiding in the darkness not far from the space station. When the light over the earth began to hit the space station...the light also hit the UFO, causing it to become visible from the darkness below. I have explained that some aliens are extremely advanced and are equally lazy at manual labor...so they grow their ships...not all species but many. Biomechanical ships, living, but made to serve. The shape of this UFO off the bow of the space station makes me think it too...had been grown. This is 100% proof that aliens are watching humanity's activities in space...very closely...about 70 meters away to be exact.

A weird flying reptile killed in 1890 in Arizona

A weird flying reptile killed in 1890 in Arizona

In early summer of 1890, two farmers were returning home. In the desert, between Whetstone and Huachuca (in Arizona), they found a mysterious winged monster. This creature looked like an alligator.

On July 4, 1890, The Fort Morgan Times wrote:

A winged monster resembling a huge alligator, with an extremely elongated tail and an immense pair of wings, was found on the desert between Whetstone and Huachuca mountains by two ranchers who were returning home, says the Tombstone, (Ari.) Epitaph. The creature was evidently exhausted by a long fight, and when discovered was able to fly but a short distance at a time.

After the first shock of wild amazement had passed, the two men who were on horseback and armed with Winchester rifles, regained courage to pursue the monster, and, after an exciting chase of several miles, succeeded in getting near enough to open fire with their rifles, wounding it. The creature then turned on the men but owing to its exhausted condition they were able to keep out of its way, and after a few well directed shots the monster partly rolled over and remained motionless. The men cautiously approached, their horses snorting with terror, and found that the creature was dead.

They then proceeded to make an examination and found that it measured ninety-two feet in length, and the greatest diameter was about fifty inches. The monster had only two feet these being situated a short distance in front of where the wings joined to the body. The head, as near as they could judge, was about eight feet long; the jaws were thickly sel with strong, sharp teeth. Its eyes were as large as a dinner-plate and protruded about half way from the head. They had some difficulty in measuring the wings, as they were partly folded under the body, but finally got one straightened sufficiently to get a measurement of 78 feet, making the total length from tip to tip about 160 feet. The wings were composed of a thick and nearly tranparent membrane, and were devoid of feathers or hair. The skin of the body was comparatively smooch and easily penetrated by a bullet.

The men cut oil a small portion of the tip of one wing and took it home with them. Late last night one of them arrived in this city for supplied and to make the necessary preparations to skin the creature, when the hide will be sent east for examination by the eminent scientists of the day.

Saint Anthony met a mysterious being in a desert in Egypt

Saint Anthony met a mysterious being in a desert in Egypt

Antony the Great (251-356) was a Christian monk born in Egypt. He is now considered as the Father of all Monks. One day, while he walked alone in a desert, he met a mysterious creature…

This incredible story was reported by Saint Jérôme as follows:

So Antony, astonished, and thinking over what he had seen, goes forward. Soon afterwards, he sees in a stony valley a short manikin, with crooked nose and brow rough with horns, whose lower parts ended in goat’s feet. Undismayed by this spectacle likewise, Antony seized, like a good warrior, the shield of faith and habergeon of hope; the animal, however, was bringing him dates, as food for his journey, and a pledge of peace. When he saw that, Antony pushed on, and, asking him who he was, was answered, “I am a mortal, and one of the inhabitants of the desert, whom the Gentiles, deluded by various errors, worship by the name of Fauns, Satyrs, and Incubi. I come as ambassador from our herd, that thou mayest pray for us to the common God, who, we know, has come for the salvation of the world, and his sound is gone out into all lands.” As he spoke thus, the aged wayfarer bedewed his face plenteously with tears, which the greatness of his joy had poured forth as signs of his heart. For he rejoiced at the glory of Christ, and the destruction of Satan; and, wondering at the same time that he could understand the creature’s speech, he smote on the ground with his staff, and said, “Woe to thee, Alexandria, who worshippest portents instead of God! Woe to thee, harlot city, into which all the demons of the world have flowed together! What wilt thou say now? Beasts talk of Christ, and thou worshippest portents instead of God.” He had hardly finished his words, when the swift beast fled away as upon wings. Lest this should move a scruple in any one on account of its incredibility, it was corroborated, in the reign of Constantine, by the testimony of the whole world. For a man of that kind, being led alive to Alexandria, afforded a great spectacle to the people; and afterwards the lifeless carcase, being salted lest it should decay in the summer heat, was brought to Antioch, to be seen by the Emperor.

In this book entitled, “Passport to Magonia: From Folklore to Flying Saucers”, the french ufologist and scientist Jacques Vallée thinks that this weird creature came from another planet. In fact, if it was a angel or a devil, Saint Antony would have recognized it. So, what it was? An alien or this story is just legend?

The terrifying prophecy of Mother Shipton about coronavirus...

The terrifying prophecy of Mother Shipton about coronavirus...

Ursula Southeil (1488-1561), better known as Mother Shipton is one the most famous English soothsayer and prophetess. According to some people, she predicted the Coronavirus pandemic…

The “Yorkshire witch” was born in Knaresborough in a cave. She was reputed to be hideously ugly. She married Toby Shipton, a local carpenter, near York in 1512. Throughout her life, she made predictions.

Now, researchers have found some references to COVID-19 in the prophecies of Mother Shipton. Here the complete prediction about Coronavirus:

And yellow people get more power
From the mighty bear with whom they lay.
But these mighty tyrants can’t do anything
They will not be able to divide the world into two parts.
For danger arises from their actions –
A terrible fever, leaving many dead.
And doctors won’t find a cure
For the disease will be worse than leprosy.

“Yellow people” refers to Chinese people and the “terrible fever leaving many dead” will be the coronavirus. The onset of COVID-19 will be a sign of terrible events:

When moving pictures seem alive
When boats like fish swim under the sea,
When people, like birds, will cut through the sky
Then half of the world, drenched in blood, will die.
Those who survive the century
Will be in awe and awe
Many will flee to the mountains, to the forests and hide in the swamps
Slowly they will die out
Searching for diminishing streams of water
Many will die of thirst earlier
Than the oceans rise to the shore.
Fire dragon cross the sky
Six times before this earth dies
Humanity will tremble and be scared
Until the sixth herald in this prophecy.
Seven days and seven nights
A person will watch this amazing sight.
The tides will rise beyond
The shores will begin to crumble
Mountains will roar
And earthquakes will split the plains.
And floods of water rushing
Flood all the lands with a roar
Having buried humanity in a dirty swamp
And a man will roar at his brethren.
He will bare his teeth, he will fight and kill
Fighting for food supplies
Hidden in secret hills
Not every soul on earth will die.
As the tail of the Dragons passes by.
Not every earth on the planet will sink
But plants, bodies of people and animals
Will roll around
They will rot, crunch under your feet and stink.

So, by reading these lines, we can say that our futur will be terrifying and hopeless…

A child claims to have seen an elf at home

A child claims to have seen an elf at home

While still a child, a girl named Susan repeatedly saw a terrifying leprechaun inside her home.

She told her story to her childhood friend. At the time, she lived in the western state of Pennsylvania. Her best friend posted this account on Reddit under the pseudonym "ExistentialDead14":

One morning she came into school and told me in a whisper that she had seen a leprechaun in the hallway of her room the night before. I could tell it scared her. I asked her if she’d ever seen it before, and she said she had. She said she’d heard rustling noises out in the hallway, and gotten out of her bed to peek around the corner. In the corner of the hall she saw a small man approximately two feet tall in dirty clothes with red hair. She froze with fear, then she said the man disappeared. She said she’d seen him before out of the corner of her eye moving in the hallway, at all hours of the day. I remember her clear as day saying to me that it did NOT look like the leprechaun on the Lucky Charms box.

Being an amateur paranormal investigator even at nine, I asked her to draw me a picture. I still have the picture somewhere at my parents. She drew a small man with red hair standing in her hallway. She believed she saw the leprechaun one more time then she told me she never saw it again. It should be noted too that Susan was not asleep or in her bed the times she thought she saw the leprechaun. She would see it out in the hallway or out of the corner or her eye while she was upstairs. I believe too she only saw it over a six-month period. A lot of strange things happened at her house and I know she believed what she saw, and wasn’t just “making up stories.

The young woman who reported this story had already published the story of a policeman named Mike who ran over a leprechaun while he was on patrol. Now, she has decided to investigate these mysterious and folkloric beings. She thinks that this creature was not a leprechaun but a "tommy knocker". She explains:

Now that I’m older and do paranormal investigation myself, I believe that what Mike and Susan both saw are what are called Tommy Knockers. Tommy Knockers are leprechaun-like creatures believed by immigrant coal miners to live in the mines and move tools and such things. This being western Pennsylvania, each location where the leprechaun was seen was above or near a coal mine. They are often described as dirty, scraggly, sharp featured looking little men with reddish hair. I cannot express how sincere both of them were to me when telling me their stories. I personally know two people who claim to have seen a leprechaun, and are very sincere in their beliefs of having seen a leprechaun; also, the stories are very believable. I personally believe they’ve seen Tommy Knockers, which is sort of the “USA” version of a leprechaun.

A new mysterious pyramid found on the Moon

On November 20, 2020, ufologist Scott C. Waring found a mysterious pyramid on a picture caught by Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LROC), a NASA robotic spacecraft launched on June 18, 2009 from Cape Canaveral.

LRO is part of the United State’s Vision for Space Exploration program. Final goal is to send men to the Moon.

On a picture caught during this mission, this ufologist found something strange : an incredible pyramid similar to the famous Pyramids of Égypte. He explains:

I found a pyramid on Earths moon today. Its really big, about 1km across. The pyramid is very similar to pyramids in Egypt seen from above using Google Earth. The site I got it from is an NASA endorsed site used by scientists. I also found many other interesting things...take a look at the video I made below and please subscribe to my channel because sometimes I make a video but wont make a post about it. This is 100% proof that ancient aliens moved from the moon to Earth thousands of years ago.

A poltergeist scares inhabitants in a village in Malaysia

In Malaysia, many villagers are terrified of a ghost that never ceases to torment them. The testimonies are numerous and the mystery remains, to this day, intact.

Sabak is a coastal town in the Sabak Bernam district, Malaysia. For some time now, it has been the scene of paranormal phenomena. The country's media have reported a multitude of incidents that occur there almost daily. Local officials fail to explain what is going on. The police, meanwhile, rule out the possibility that they could be pranksters.

One of the inhabitants, victim of this poltergeist, testifies:

The knocking sound was loud as if someone wanted to get into the house quickly. When I peeked out the window, I did not see who was knocking. A few minutes later, the knock came back and it came from the bathroom in the house. Coincidentally, the bathroom has not been used for a long time, so my whole body shivered and my hair ruffled as soon as I heard the knock.

Muhammad Nazri Saiman, the president of Kampung Batu 37 Darat Village Community Management Council (MPKK) chose to handle this case:

It is understood that almost half of the villagers complained about the incident (knock on the door). I advise them to be careful and not open the door if they hear suspicious sounds.

But what to do when the beatings come from inside the house like Mhd Khairol Anuar Mhd Zaini did?

Disturbingly, these supernatural phenomena have spread to almost all of the neighboring villages.

The authorities noted that the events occurred mainly at night. So they decided to robust patrols in the hope of getting their hands on any jokers.

Some locals believe that these phenomena could be the act of shamans who invoked Penanggalan, evil spirits, in Malay culture.

Others believe it could be the spirit of a recent deceased whose soul is tormented.

Is this a phenomenon of mass hysteria? Are we dealing with a particularly active poltergeist?

Man saw his own funeral from beyond

Man saw his own funeral from beyond

A man has had an extraordinary near-death experience. While unconscious, he claims he had attended his own funeral in ghost form ...

A person named Thomas was clinically dead following complications during surgery. He has been in in the afterlife and had terrifying visions.

He reported his story on the Near Death Experience Research Foundation website:

I landed on grass and found myself in Willamette National Cemetery in Portland, Oregon.

I was wearing a hospital gown and I couldn't understand why no one could see me. I started to walk over to one of the shelters where funerals take place for veterans.

I noticed a large gathering was taking place. I walked over and could see my wife and my step-daughter crying.

I started to freak out as I realise it was my funeral. I tried to get their attention but there was no sound; it was absolute silence. Then, everything went dark again.

This time I could see from a different angle. I watched my parents arguing in a room.

The room had concrete blocks for walls that were painted white. I couldn't exactly hear what was being said but it almost seemed as if I was in my mother's womb.

I was being presented with various scenes that seemed to go on forever. (I'm going to save this part for a book.)

At the end, I became woozy and blacked out. I woke up in a chair. There was a woman in a nurse's uniform with a dark blue sweater who was standing in a dark room.

She started to talk to me but her mouth wasn't moving. She told me that I was being sent back because it wasn't my time yet.

Moments later, Thomas returned to his own body. He is now convinced that there is life after death.

A mermaid found in the Sea of Japan in 19th century

A mermaid found in the Sea of Japan in 19th century

In the late 19th century, a real mermaid was caught in Sea of Japan. Later, the creature was sold and was exposed in a market in Benares, a city ubicated in the State of Uttar Pradesh, northern India.

A journalist working for Delhi Gazette reported:

Some Mohammedans [Muslims, archaic] of Bengal have recently brought here a mermaid preserved in a case. It exactly resembles a fish covered with scales in the lower half, and a monkey having a head and two arms, with fingers and nails, in the upper. Of course, it is a curious thing to look at. I was quite astonished to learn from some of my friends that a real mermaid, exposed in the chouk of this city, could be seen on paying a single piece. So, as this filled my mind with great curiosity, I went there, yesterday, and saw that it was all true, and that a man, sitting at the door, with a bell in his hand was inviting the passers-by to that spectacle. I, with two friends, went in, saw the animal, and felt it with my own hands. I couldn’t make out anything fictitious in it. On inquiring of the man who was present there, I was informed that it was a real mermaid, found in the sea near Japan, and that a man bought it for five hundred rupees at a public auction in Calcutta. He further told me that another of the same sort, but as big as a man, was sold there for fourteen hundred rupees. The length of the one I saw here was about a foot and a half.

A brontosaurus observed in Congo in 1919

A brontosaurus observed in Congo in 1919

In 1919, a Belgian hunter saw with his own eyes a huge and mysterious creature in the heart of the jungle in the Congo.

Mr. Gapelle, a Belgian prospector and hunter, was in the wilderness when he noticed strange footprints on the ground. Astonished, he followed the trail for about 12 miles. After a while, he saw a huge beast. This animal had large scales and a very thick tail, similar to that of a kangaroo. He had a horn on his muzzle and a bump on his back.

Without hesitation, the hunter shot him. The beast then disappeared in the swamps.

According to many accounts, this creature could be a dinosaur of the order of the sauropods, which disappeared tens of millions of years ago.

The inhabitants of the region nickname this monster Mokélé-mbembé. He would live in the tributaries of the Congo River.

According to German adventurer Lt. Paul Gratz's account from 1911:

The crocodile is found only in very isolated specimens in Lake Bangweulu, except in the mouths of the large rivers at the north. In the swamp lives the nsanga, much feared by the natives, a degenerate saurian which one might well confuse with the crocodile were it not that its skin has no scales and its toes are armed with claws. I did not succeed in shooting a nsanga, but on the island of Mbawala I came by some strips of its skin.

Alfred Aloysius Smith, who had worked for a British trading company in what is now Gabon in the late 1800s, briefly mentions in his 1927 memoir the "jago-nini" and "amali":

Aye, and behind the Cameroon there's things living we know nothing about. I could 'a' made books about many things. The Jago-Nini they say is still in the swamps and rivers. Giant diver it means. Comes out of the water and devours people. Old men'll tell you what their grandfathers saw but they still believe its there. Same as the Amali I've always taken it to be. I've seen the Amali's footprint. About the size of a good frying pan in circumference and three claws instead of five.

A spherical UFO sighted in 1948 in Adelaide, Australia

A spherical UFO sighted in 1948 in Adelaide, Australia

At the end of November 1948, several residents of the city of Adelaide, in southern Australia, saw a very bright UFO after dark.

All witnesses stated that this unidentified flying object was particularly bright and that it was spherical in shape. Here are some testimonials.

Ms. M. E. Fry (Hamilton District)

I saw a very large ball of brillianit light in the early morning of November 25. The lights in the street were out, and all at once my room was flooded with light.

At first I thought it was tihe comet. The ball of light sparkled witlf most beautiful colors. As I watched it glittering, it nearly blinded me; it seemed very close. I watched it for quite five minutes before it disappeared. I thought is resembled a huge crown.

Mrs. Miriam DAVEY (Paynebam District)

My window blinds were down when the ball of light shone. Like Mrs. Dalton, I expected that, something strange was going to happen.

Mrs. Annie E. DIMBLE (Kirkcaldy District)

I, too, saw the spectacular ball of light at 1.50 a.m on Thursday. I was awake in my sleepout when suddenly the whole universe was lit up by a tremendous pale green ball of light falling from the sky in the north-west.

Young couple terrified by mutant dog on Colorado River

Young couple terrified by mutant dog on Colorado River

A few years ago, a young couple went on their honeymoon on a boat on the Colorado River. One night, the two lovers saw a terrifying “mutant dog ...

The following story was related by the young man's father:

This is posted for my son. About twelve years ago my son and his wife were visiting —– for their third honeymoon. They rented an older —- boat and drifted along —–. Around two in the morning my house phone rang off the hook with my son fanatically shouting that he had just seen a mutant dog with a piercing howl attempting to catch a duck. He forwarded the details as a four-foot mangy dog with terrifying overlapping teeth. He said the dog failed to catch ducks and ran off hungry when they shined a flashlight onto the shore.

Was it the Chupacabra?

A man greeted by a strange presence in the afterlife

A man greeted by a strange presence in the afterlife

A man named Jim, who suffers from diabetes, has had a severe attack of hypoglycemia. He lost consciousness. It was then that he had a near-death experience.

Jim claims to have been in the afterlife. Everything was dark but he had an unshakeable sense of peace. He explains that there was a mysterious presence that communicated with him telepathically.

He told his story on the Near Death Experience Research Foundation website:

I felt an indescribable peace and calm. It's hard to put into words but I have never felt such a feeling before in my life.

To simply say that I felt calm and peaceful does not do it justice. Low blood sugar, once consciousness returns, produces intense feelings of anxiety, agitation, confusion, fear and panic.

I felt none of this. Quite the opposite. I have never felt such peace, calm, warmth and love in my life.

There were no tunnels, bright lights or life reviews.

What I did experience was a presence, which reassured me that everything would be all right.

It was not a spoken voice but rather a telepathic message, which was just as clear as a spoken voice. It reassured me and put me at ease.

I firmly believe it was a higher power communicating this message to me.

Suddenly Jim was back in his body.

Canada - Prominent officer sees ghost of deceased brother

Canada - Prominent officer sees ghost of deceased brother

At the end of the 19th century, two officers serving in Canada saw a mysterious figure. One of the two witnesses realized it was the ghost of his brother who died that very night.

Here the original article:

In the whole record of so-called supernatural appearances' there is not one which is more thoroughly authenticated than the following :

John Cope Sherbroke and George Waynyard were two officers in the thirty-third regiment, and at the. Time of the extraordinary occurrence here related the regiment was on service in Canada. One evening, as usual, they went into a little room adjoining Waynyard's bedroom and commenced reading.

After a few minutes Capt, Sherbroke looked up from his book and saw standing in a doorway of the room a man who was a perfect stranger to him. At a loss to account for the intrusion, Capt. Sherbroke turned to his companion to ask if the stranger was an acquaintance of his. Waynyard was as pale as death, and apparently incapable of speech. Seeing this, Capt. Sherbroke made no effort to stop the figure, which slowly crossed the apartment and passed through the door leading to Waynyard's bedroom. As soon as the man was out of sight Waynyard recovered his faculties and cried out, “My brother.

Your brother!” repeated Sherbroke. “What can you mean, Waynyard? There must be some deception. Follow me.

They went into the bedroom, a room from which the only possible means of exit was the one door already referred to. They found the room empty.

This incident produced a profound impression among the officers of the regiment who knew that both Sherbroke and Waynyard were sober, cool headed men of unblemished integrity.

Waynyard declared that the apparition was the spirit of his brother, and expressed the conviction that his brother was dead.

When time had elapsed sufficient to allow inquiries to be made it was discovered that he had died on the very night on which his spirit had appeared to the astonished officers in Canada.

Of the two witnesses of this strange episode one became Gen. Sir John Cope Sherbroke, G. C. B., and the other Lieut.-Col. Waynyard, of the Twenty-fourth Light Dragoons.

UFO terrified Kansas residents in 1913

UFO terrified Kansas residents in 1913

Over a century ago a strange and unidentified phenomenon terrified the people of Meade County, Texas. At regular intervals, a mysterious light appeared in the southeast of the region, not far from the town of Lakeland.

Here the article published in 1913:

Hutchinson. Kan.. March 16 Special —There is something going on in Kansas which has the people guessing. They are not superstitious people — but yet they would like to know. After a disappearance of six years the ‘Sand Creek ghost light’ is once more beginning to put in an appearance nights in southeastern Meade county, near the town of Lakeland.

This mysterious light white and very bright, suddenly appearing on the prairie often accompanied by a sound as of escaping steam, so startled farmers and stockmen that it was with dread that they would venture out in the night in the Sand Creek neighborhood.

For several years, hoever, since that neighborhood has commenced to settle up the mysterious light has not made an appearance.

A few nights ago John C. Crompton, traveling overland with his family from Oklahoma to Larkin, Kansas, drove hasthy into Meade and reported seeing a strange light, in the very vicinity where the mysterious Sand Creek "ghost light” formerly held forth.

"We were driving along slowly when suddenly a great white light, very bright, appeared to be coming toward us.” said Crompton. “When the light came within a few rods of us it suddenly disappeared, only to reappear in a short time.

It was northwest Lakeland : just how far we were from that postoffice I can not say. hut I should judge about six or seven miles. Every time the light appeared the horses reared and plunged and we were compelled to stop to avert a runaway. At first I thought it was an automobile light, but it was too large and bright for that, and, as no machine appeared, I gave up that idea. It was certainly the most bewildering and grewsome light I ever saw and I can not understand what it was

Meade people immediately recognized the light from the description given by the traveler, and there was much excitement over the news that the ‘ghost light’ had reappeared after several years.

Captain R. M. Painter, a wealthy ranchman. living near Lakeland, and in Sand Creek Township, vouches for the truth of the mysterious light, but is unable to account for it.

I first saw the ghostly light some seven years ago.” said Captain Painter. “I have seen it on twenty-five or thirty different occasions, but never have been able to explain it. It would first appear like the light of a lantern, but immediately bloomed out as big as a full moon.

It looked somewhat like the headlight of a locomotive coming suddenly around a curve, and was accompained by a roaring sound like the escaping of steam, but there is no railroad within twenty miles. It reappeared at Intervals of from one to seven days. It would never get closer than 60 or 70 rods and seemed always to come from the northwest.

I and members of my family have observed it many time. We know it in our neighborhood as the ghost light. When it shows up it always badly frightens horses, and has been the cause of many runaway accidents. The horses seem to know its approach before it is sighted.

About six years ago many others besides myself repeatedly saw this ghostly light, but it disappeared about the time that the Germans settled in that portion of the county and has not been heard of until now.

At one time it appeared to be directly in front of the Lakeland postoffice, and several times while driving at night has it appeared, always causing the horses to be alarmingly frightened. One citizen saw it and attempted to go to it, but it disappeared, with no remaining sign or mark left to tell the tale.

We have made many efforts to ascertain the cause of this strange light. It is not of a phosphorescent nature for there is no marsh or lowland there, and it appears to be of a brilliant white, while phosphorescent lights are bluish of tint, and besides phosphorus lights appear only in wet, marshy, low places. There are no low or wet lands out our way. It is high and dry there. All theories have been exploded after investigation. and the mystery of the light still remains. I am a non-believer in ghosts, but the ghost light never has been explained.

Herman Tonhoff of Odee, Meade county, has been an eyewitness of the light and describes it exactly as does Captain Fainter. He was riding a horse one night when the light appeared and his horse squatted down trembling with fear.

Frank Fuhr, editor of the Meade Globe, says the reappearance of the Sand Creek ‘ghost light’ is causing much concern. “Whether one believes in ghosts or not, the strange light is a phenomena that is causing much anxiety”, he said.

Several theories have been advanced. One is that the ghost light has some connection with the earth cracks which have attracted much attention in Meade county. The theory is that interior pressure of gases causes these cracks, and that the escaping gas being ignited forms this strange phenomenon. But no trace has ever been found of natural gas or of the effects of gas burning.

Another theory is that the lights are really mirages. If such a thing as a night mirage is possible, of Rock Island railway trains on the railroad twenty miles away, the electric headlight of the locomotive being lifted and shown miles away on the prairie by this optical phenomenon.

At any event the ‘Sand Creek ghost light’ has proved that it can ‘come back’ after having disappeared for several years.

Woolly mammoths observed in 1818 in the United States

Woolly mammoths observed in 1818 in the United States

In 1818, in the Rockies in the United States, a witness allegedly saw several woolly mammoths roaming the area.

Woolly mammoths officially became extinct over 4000 years ago. Yet only two centuries ago, people reported seeing them in the west of the country.


The fact of its existence rests upon the testimony of two different parties who had been sent some errand into the interior valleys of those mountains. The first party came suddenly upon the animal in a deep and formerly unvisited recess, and were so alarmed at its prodigious size, (exceeding that of the largest elephant,) and at its unknown aspect, that they immediately retreated in great consternation to the encampment from which they had been dispatched. Another party was sent to the same spot to ascertain the fact; and though the animal was not observed, its footsteps could be distinctly traced, and each compartment of its hoof is stated to have admitted both the feet of the travelers. It ought to observed, that these parties were perfectly familiar with the appearance of the buffaloe (sic) which indeed they were in the daily habit of killing; and that the animal which they saw cannot therefore be regarded as an individual of that tribe. It was seen, too, as I have already stated, in a very remote and central valley, and the intervals between its paces are described having been of astonishing magnitude. Now we know well that animals of immense size have inhabited the northern parts of our earth in former times, and the huge remains which are every day dug up, are more likely to have belonged to individuals of such an animal as that now alluded to, than to any extinct species of a former world.

Unidentified lights caught over New Taipei

On October 30, 2020, as night had fallen, a ufologist was on his way home when he spotted several unidentified lights not far from his home. He was able to record these amazing UFOs.

That evening Scott C. Waring, who is a school teacher in Taiwan, had finished his day's work. It was then that he saw strange moving lights in the sky.

He tells:

Hey guys, I was closing my window for the night at work when I saw these strange lights in the sky. They are not spot lights. I walked over there after work and saw nothing in that area for three blocks. I have never seen these lights in this location before, so I began to record a short video of them. I was still at work and wanted to say goodbye to some kids in person so I ended the video after a minute and a half. Twenty minutes later after work the lights were gone, but I walked that way to go home and saw nothing in that location. I believe these to be some kind of energy ships with energy beings abroad. They don't have a pattern to their movements and are moving unpredictably. Aliens over my home, I'm not surprised.

UFC star claims to have seen UFO in Albuquerque

UFC star claims to have seen UFO in Albuquerque

American UFC star Diego Sanchez claimed to have observed a UFO over the town of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

This mixed martial arts champion was training at his home when he spotted this UFO. Terribly excited by this sudden appearance, he immediately posted his short testimony on his Twitter account:

Today a powerful portal of light energy is open. If there ever was a night to connect with the universe tonight is the night. I have been celebrating and connecting all day.

I was doing energy work on my patio as a ufo flew right up on me I called for my daughter quick quick she watched this thing Hoover only hundreds of feet away Albuquerque is a trip sightings are regular here. But this shit was contact tonight it was obvious it was watching me

Alas, the man does not appear to have taken any photos or videos of this UFO. However, he's not the only UFC champion to have had unexplained experiences. The Canadian Georges St-Pierre had admitted, in various interviews, to have a deep fear of extraterrestrials. He even claimed to have been kidnapped by these terrifying aliens…

Mermaids seen in Indiana in the 19th century

Mermaids seen in Indiana in the 19th century

Over a century ago, mermaids were observed in the Ohio River near the town of Vevay, in the US state of Indiana.

In 1891, several witnesses reported seeing mysterious humanoid creatures. Two of the creatures had been seen swimming in the water or basking on submerged tree stumps. They ate fish and mussels.

These creatures were humanoid, amphibious, hairless. They were described as vaguely humanoid in appearance, amphibious and completely hairless, and with webbed hands, sharp claws, fins, pointed ears, and jagged teeth.

The Cincinnati Enquirer provided a description:

The beast is about five feet in length…Its general color is yellowish. The body between the four legs resembles that of a human being. Back of the hind legs it tapers to a point…The extremities resemble hands and are webbed and furnished with sharp claws…it is devoid of hair…Its ears are sharp-pointed and stand up like those of a dog.

J.M. Ozier, a conferred captain from Kentucky, saw these monsters and even made a sketch. He said they were aggressive. He says there was a male and a female.

A report was published at the time:

On the sand bar of the Ohio River Vevay, Indiana, reside two nondescript creatures horrible in appearance and habit. They are amphibious in nature and resemble in appearance huge lizards with human features. When partly submerged in the yellow waters of the Ohio, they are strangely like human beings. Of what species of animal they are no one knows, for it is impossible to get near enough to them to judge correctly. The sand bar in question is at low tide covered with huge logs and stumps of trees, known in the river vernacularly as snags. They have been deposited by the government snag boats engaged in keeping the channel clear. When the water is high enough to cover these snags, the creatures make their home among them. When the water recedes, they disappear into some unknown lair and wait for a rise. From indications they appear to be carnivorous. Among the snags are to be found wagon loads of mussel shells, fish bones, and other debris of animals. When the river goes down, these shells and other articles disappear only to be succeeded by a fresh lot. This is evidence to those who have watched the coming and going of the strange things that they live upon such food.

These mermaids were not seen until in 1891. After that year they disappeared completely and have never been seen again.

A policeman says he ran over a leprechaun!

A policeman says he ran over a leprechaun!

A few years ago, a policeman was on his regular patrol somewhere in western Pennsylvania, United States. Suddenly, without warning, a strange little being came out and the agent accidentally knocked him over.

The leprechaun is a legendary humanoid being from Irish folklore. Although this creature is just a myth, this policeman named Mike is sure he saw one. This supernatural encounter particularly marked him and, even today, when he speaks about it he still has chills.

A woman known only as "ExistentialDead14" told the story of the police officer, a person she knows well. This story was published on Reddit:

All of the sudden, Mike saw what he thought was an animal coming out of the grass on the left side. He said he saw the next sequence of events in slow motion. He tried to slow his cruiser down. He saw that it was not an animal, but indeed a small, bald, dirty man dressed in ragged clothes approximately two feet tall running out from the grass. He slammed on the brakes. The cruiser did not stop fast enough and he hit the small man with the front of the car. The man flew up in the air. Mike jumped out and ran to the front. He said he looked right down at the small man, who he then noticed had reddish brown hair. The little man began a screaming, evil laugh and hopped up, running into the grass on the right side of the road. Mike ran after him but all he heard was the sound of his evil mocking laugh.

When Mike got back to the station, he was visibly shaken. My ex’s father said he was pale white and could barely choke out the story. When he finished telling them what happened, everyone except my ex’s dad began howling with laughter. The other cops teased him relentlessly about the leprechaun story. Since it was about three weeks before St. Patrick’s Day, one of the cops went to the dollar store and bought a leprechaun hat. He left it on Mike’s doorstep with a note stuck in the brim saying “I’M COMING FOR YA MIKEY”. The next morning Mike came in crying and told my ex’s father he was quitting the police. My ex’s father believed Mike and said he could tell he was extremely sincere in his belief that he’d hit a leprechaun. He told the other cops to leave him alone about it and Mike worked with him for years to come. I first heard this story from my ex’s father. I could tell he really believed Mike had seen what he’d seen. Later that year, Mike was over at my ex’s house. I asked Mike about the story. He grew pale and quiet, and he told me exactly the same story my ex’s father had told me earlier. He insists and has always insisted that he hit a leprechaun with his car that day.

Little aliens kill old woman in Mexico

Little aliens kill old woman in Mexico

One evening, two children, a brother and a sister were playing video games in their room at their home in Veracruz, Mexico. After hearing strange noises outside, they saw an oval shaped UFO in front of their neighbor's house.

Several small beings came out of this machine. They wore a red suit and walked towards the neighbors' house through the walls. Curious, the two children looked out the window to see what was happening. They had no idea they were going to witness a horrible scene.

Writer and ufologist Albert S. Rosales recounts what happened:

The children reported that they watched the little red men began to “strike” or hit the elderly woman who began screaming for her daughter. According to the children right before the assault took place the elderly woman apparently attacked the humanoids first. The children counted about 10 humanoids and 5 of them were carrying stick-like implements resembling broom handles. The humanoids began striking the old woman with these instruments and at the same time emitting loud guttural sounds. The horrified children watched until the elderly woman fell to the floor apparently dead (!), at this point her daughter came out of the bedroom and upon seeing her mother on the floor also collapsed, not before according to the children she was surrounded by four of the little red men. The children then reported that they remained watching as the little men placed both bodies on top of the sofa and “cut both dead bodies in half”. The humanoids then took the upper section of the bodies with them. At this point terrified beyond words both children ran to their home directly across the street and locked themselves in. Apparently the humanoids had not seen them. The children added that they had seen similar humanoids in Toluca. The children also reported that an 18-year old man living in the same neighborhood suffered the same fate one night while he was in his yard, according to them this time the craft was smaller and had landed on the roof, but the aliens were the same type.

Respected Romanian general meets several reptilian humanoids

Respected Romanian general meets several reptilian humanoids

A few years ago, a Romanian general was driving home. In a gas station, he saw with his own eyes two reptilian humanoids ...

Emil Streinu was a Romanian general. He was also an advisor of the Romanian Parliament on unconventional issues and asymmetrical threats, director of The Special Situations and Research Center on UFOs and Psichotronics as well as the founder of the Association for the Study of Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena and author of several of esoteric publications. He is also the author of several books on esotericism.

This senior officer was specialized in commando warfare.

Shortly after meeting these weird beings in the remote mountains of Retezat, the witness contacted ufologist Aryan Hava to whom he told his incredible story…

This high ranking officer, let’s call him “Colonel X”, was driving back from a short camping trip, which he took alone in the mountains. He was close to Bucharest when he noticed that he was low on gas…so he pulled into a small rural gas station. It was 5:00 – 5:10 AM, so nobody was around. Colonel X noticed a khaki Hummer with black windows parked outside the gas station with the engine on, but nobody around it. After filling up his tank, he paid and walked back to his SUV. He then noticed that the driver’s door of the Hummer was opened and inside it he saw a reptilian being. The reptilian had no clothes but it was wearing military boots…it was entirely covered with green scales (like a crocodile) and had a lizard-type crest on the head. The reptilian saw Colonel X, then he got out of the Hummer, while still staring at him. He directed some sharp sounds at someone from inside the car, this time looking irritated, then got back at the wheel and quickly drove away. The car had no license plates, either on the front or back. Colonel X estimated the reptilian to be 2.00m (78.7 inches) high, with yellow eyes and cat type slits. The Colonel looked around to see if someone else had witnessed the event, but he was alone. Then he noticed the gas station’s video camera. Unfortunately, the attendant told him that the camera was “just for decoration” and had no practical use, other than scare any potential robbers. Thinking that this was a very well played hoax, he got back into the car and continued his journey. After several miles he was still very upset by the events, when he saw the same Hummer with all four doors opened. On the shoulder he noticed two dark green reptilians that seemed to be arguing. The second reptilian was 15-20 cm (5,9 – 7,9 inches) higher than the first one. It wasn’t wearing clothes or boots and had lizard-type feet and unlike the first one, it also had a tail. On the street, trucks were passing by in both directions and the drivers were pointing at the creatures, but nobody pulled over. Then, Colonel X got his mobile phone out and took several photographs of the reptilians who seem oblivious to the situation. After 3-5 minutes, the two reptilians got back into the Hummer and drove back, at high speed, in the direction they initially came from. The Colonel looked again at the pictures from his mobile phone and rushed for Bucharest in order to contact General Streinu and together decide what to do with the astonishing pictures. Back in Bucharest, the phone clearly showed 11 pictures, but all of them were completely green. Together with General Streinu, they headed to a phone service company that couldn’t help them either. It was like the Colonel photographed a bright green light. For two weeks they analyzed the story in great detail and searched for witnesses, but all efforts ended up in failure.

1906 - The sky over the city of Petaluma turns red

1906 - The sky over the city of Petaluma turns red

On October 11, 1906, residents of the city of Petaluma, California, were terrified by an unexplained phenomenon. Some thought it was a divine sign foretelling the Apocalypse.

That day the sky over that town ubicated in Sonoma County turned crimson. The clouds were completly red. The whole municipality was immersed in a surrealist atmosphere. This phenomenon lasted about 25 minutes. After that, everything returned to normal.

What happened here? There is little chance that was caused by pollution, much lower at this time. It could be a sandstorm like it happened in Arxan, northern China, in April 2015.

A huge and mysterious creature seen in Canada in 1803

A huge and mysterious creature seen in Canada in 1803

At the start of the 19th century, a soldier saw a huge and weird creature while in western Canada. The witness only briefly described this huge beast.

Thomas Pollock, who was a sergeant of the Hudson's Bay Company, was with his guide. They had gone to venture out to come into contact with indigenous tribes.

His story was told in Edinburgh Magazine:

We left York fort on the 19th of May 1803. About fortnight after, having been sent across a river, the name of which I do not now recollect, by Mr. Louis’s orders, the guide and myself suddenly came upon animal of an enormous size. It appeared about 20 feet in height, and had a very heavy and unwieldy appearance. I can give but a very lame account of it, on account the consternation into which I was thrown. The largeness of its belly was enormous, nearly touching the ground. Its colour was a dirty black.

What the hell was it?
