Declassified Soviet UFO Chase

In 1991 an unidentified craft, travelling at high speed, was said to have entered Russian airspace. Four jets, including one outfitted with a video camera, and three other MIG-21 jets, were scrambled in order to intercept the object. This declassified video footage shows the object as it appeared from the cockpit of the camera plane. It appears to be a large, cylinder or cigar-shaped UFO, travelling at similar speeds to the jet (550 knots). Suddenly it increases its speed and moves off camera, outpacing the jets considerably.

According to the pilots involved, they estimate that the UFO must have reached at least Mach three in about ten seconds. The UFO is estimated to be about twice the size of the MIG-21s. With the technology available to either the Russian government or the United States government at the time, it should not have been able to move as fast as it does, experts say.

'Ghostbusters' Say Local Library Is Haunted

The 100-year-old Phoenixville Library has long been rumored to be haunted by ghosts of a man and his dog.

Now, some local Ghosthunters think they have evidence proving the library has paranormal patrons.

Librarians at the facility say the old man has been getting cranky lately. And real-life ghost hunters say they have the proof.

"Books have been sliding off the shelf," said librarian Dorothy Wolff. She also has seen a spinning pencil holder.

Lots of other employees have apparently seen the ghosts and over the weekend, the library brought in the Chester County Paranormal Research Society - volunteer Ghostbusters if you will.

Their ghost-energy testing equipment went nuts in the old building, and a night surveillance camera caught a book flying off a shelf.

All of this is leading to a serious question: Could this place really be haunted?

"Oh yeah definitely," says Cindy Starr-Witman of Chester County Paranormal Research Society. "Hair is standing up on your arm or the back of your neck - (you are) feeling chills with the temperature dropping suddenly several degrees."

This expert says these ghosts are harmless and readers should keep on coming to the library.

"They don't have anything to fear," says Starr-Witman. "It's nothing that's going to hurt them or harm them in any way."

If you want further proof, the local Ghostbusters and even the town newspaper caught mysterious lights on camera at the library.

'Hybrid Mutant' Found Dead in Maine

Residents are wondering if an animal found dead over the weekend may be the mysterious creature that has mauled dogs, frightened residents and been the subject of local legend for half a generation.

The animal was found near power lines along Route 4 on Saturday, apparently struck by a car while chasing a cat. The carcass was photographed and inspected by several people who live in the area, but nobody is sure exactly what it is.

Michelle O'Donnell of Turner spotted the animal near her yard about a week before it was killed. She called it a "hybrid mutant of something."

"It was evil, evil looking. And it had a horrible stench I will never forget," she told the Sun Journal of Lewiston. "We locked eyes for a few seconds and then it took off. I've lived in Maine my whole life and I've never seen anything like it."

For the past 15 years, residents across Androscoggin County have reported seeing and hearing a mysterious animal with chilling monstrous cries and eyes that glow in the night. The animal has been blamed for attacking and killing a Doberman pinscher and a Rottweiler the past couple of years.

People from Litchfield, Sabattus, Greene, Turner, Lewiston and Auburn have come forward to speak of a mystery monster that roams the woods. Nobody knows for sure what it is, and theories have ranged from a hyena or dingo to a fisher or coydog, an offspring of a coyote and a wild dog.

Now, people are asking if the mystery beast and the animal killed over the weekend are one and the same.

Wildlife officials and animal control officers declined to go to Turner to examine the remains. By Tuesday, the carcass had been picked clean by vultures and there was not much left of the dead animal.

Loren Coleman, a Portland author and cryptozoologist, said it's unlikely that the animal was anybody's pet.

After reviewing photos of the carcass, Coleman said he was bothered by the animal's ears and snout. It reminded him of a case years ago in northern Maine in which an animal shot by a hunter could not be identified. In the end, wildlife officials got a DNA analysis that showed the animal was a rare wolf-dog hybrid, he said.

Mike O'Donnell, who is married to Michelle O'Donnell, said the animal looked "half-rodent, half-dog" to him.

It was charcoal gray, weighed between 40 and 50 pounds and had a bushy tail, a short snout, short ears and curled fangs hanging over its lips, he said. It looked like "something out of a Stephen King story."

"This is something I've never seen before. It's an evil-looking thing," he said.

British Researcher Says Infrasonic Wave Sounds Create Ghosts

British specialist in information technology Vic Tandy says he will never forget that night. He was working overtime in his laboratory at the University of Coventry, England. The clock showed 7 p.m. All of his colleagues had already left yet Tandy seemed to have lost the sense of time because his work absorbed him completely. All of a sudden he felt cold sweat running down his back – he could feel somebody watching him. He looked around and saw something gray, fog-like and somewhat shapeless moving closer in his direction. It was apparently moving and looking right at him. The apparition vanished in thin air when it was just couple of feet away from Vic. The researcher cursed loudly, took a deep breath, and wiped the sweat from his face.

The above is just the beginning of a story relayed by Tandy to one of the British dailies. The remaining part unfolds like a detective movie interspersed with scientific details.

Being a true researcher, Tandy decided to do research on the phenomenon and place it on the solid scientific grounds. Having become a “ghost buster” of sorts, he spent five years looking into all the stories related to ghosts observed in the old English castles. He lay in wait at night. He studied the readings of scientific equipment. Eventually, he learned from whence the ghosts came. He even put forth the reasons why the English happen to witness ghosts more frequently than the residents of other countries.

Rosslyn Ghost Sighting Spooks Festival Actors

Actors rehearsing at Midlothian's Rosslyn Chapel for a Festival play claim to have spotted two ghosts in the famous building.

A cast member reported seeing a "fairy-like" figure in the grounds of the Chapel, while another said they spotted a person inside the building itself.

The actors are preparing to perform A Midsummer Night's Dream, which is being produced by the Roslin-based Nonsense Room Productions.

Producer Simon Beattie, who also works as a tour guide at the Chapel and appeared as an extra in Tom Hanks' blockbuster film The Da Vinci Code, said strange sightings were not unusual at Rosslyn Chapel.

"Last year we were rehearsing for a Fringe show, and when I was locking up I heard a child's voice in the crypt and so I shouted down that I was locking up," he said.

"When I went down there however, there was no-one there.

"We've no idea who the ghosts might be but it certainly seems that they are budding thespians and they have certainly livened up our rehearsals."

Recent UFO Sightings Over Bahrain

A second reader has come forward claiming to have seen a UFO over Bahrain on Monday evening (August 7, 2006), but one of the country's top astronomers has dismissed suggestions that it was a flying saucer. Indian Joy Michael, aged 35, claimed he saw a "strange sight" over the Bahrain Financial Harbour (BFH) at around 6.10pm while he was driving home from work.

Mr Michael, who works as an administration and finance officer at Techind, said he told his friends about it, but they also dismissed the sighting. "I was driving home from work with a colleague of mine at 6.10pm when I saw this apparently revolving dish-like thing for a few seconds," said Mr Michael told the GDN yesterday. "But the report in the GDN proved something was there, for a while."

The GDN carried a picture on its front page yesterday taken by a Sri Lankan couple, which they claimed showed a UFO that flew over them as they were driving along the Sitra Causeway. Engineer Omerdeen Hamad Idrees, aged 35, said he his wife, Shiyara, took the picture when they were on their way to Sitra Mall with their four-year-old son Imran at around 9pm. Mr Idrees, who works for Products for Projects, said the object moved very slowly in the sky and made circular movements over Tubli Bay before passing over his car.

Strange Holes Discovered in Krasnoyarsk Region

Residents of Novoselovo district in the Krasnoyarsk region have come across a mysterious phenomenon in the field. They discovered several tunnels of unknown origin in an area located some 100 meters away from the highway connecting the cities of Krasnoyarsk and Abakan, in the vicinity of the village of Kurgany, Siberian News Agency reports.

There are about 10 holes in the field. Each hole has an entrance to a cave-like hollow place in the earth. Some of the tunnels are big enough for a person of medium height to stand up straight. According to one of the suppositions, all the underground passages are interconnected in a network. A few daredevils equipped with flashlights attempted walking across the tunnels.

Local residents have a number of theories to explain the origin of the tunnels. Some people believe the tunnels are the work of unidentified pranksters, others blame mysterious animals which reportedly dig holes in the ground. According to yet another theory, the tunnels may somehow be related to an earthquake that occurred in the area 3 years ago.

Krasnoyarsk scientists have not yet made any official statements as to the explanation of the phenomenon.

Recent Sightings of 'The Loveland Frog'

There have been recent reports of 'The Loveland Frog' sightings in and around the Loveland, Ohio area.

Description from X-Project: The Loveland Frog is a creature (frog-like, obviously) that's been sighted in Loveland, Ohio on multiple occasions. It has the face of a frog and crouches like a frog, but has the ability to stand upright. The sightings are generally of the creature scared and running away, but on at least one occasion, the witness claimed to be have been physically attacked.

The Loveland Frog (AKA the Loveland Lizard) is a bipedal 50 lb. frog-like creature who's been seen on several occasions in or around Loveland, Ohio. One sighting occurred on March 3rd, 1972, by a police officer. The officer was on duty cruising in his patrol car, when on the side of the road he saw what he first thought to be a dog lying there. Conditions were icy, and to avoid possibly hitting the animal, the officer slowed down and came to a stop.

As he did, the 'dog' got up on two legs and sprinted past the front of the patrol car. In the headlights the officer got a decent look. Rather than searching for such a strange creature alone, the policeman left the scene and returned with backup. This time they didn't see the creature, but did find signs of it leading into a river. The sighting by the officer is described by him as follows:

"The creature was three to four feet tall, 50 to 75 pounds, leathery skin, possibly wet - matted hair on its body that made it look textured, possible tail, a head and face like a frog or lizard, and could leap over the roads' guard rail."

New Photo Mystery! The Braxton Beast

A startling new camera trap photograph of what appears to be an unknown bipedal creature has been shared with Cryptomundo by a reader. Taken literally days ago, the West Virginia photograph of the "Braxton Beast" was "captured" in a county with a well-known history of bizarreness.

The Cryptomundo correspondent, a 27-year-old gentleman, Frederick B. Gerwig, sends along this information in his initial email to me earlier this week: "Here is a picture that my father’s wildlife camera (motion activated) took around 12/07/05. We are not sure what it is, but it doesn’t look human. It very well could be a hunter or something, however, my father’s property is posted and this is a wildlife feeding site approximately 400 yards from their Braxton County, WV home. The proportions seem very strange as compared to those of a human. It is possible that it is low light distortion, but it seems very curious. Sorry the picture is so small. The camera he uses is somewhat low tech to prevent theft as it stays stationed at this location all the time until he picks it up to download and review the pictures on his PC. Let me know what you think…we are baffled by this image."

In a follow-up email, in answer to several questions I had, Mr. Gerwig writes: "I think I mentioned earlier that this camera is unmanned as to not disturb the animals that come in to feed. There are many rock overhangs and crevices in this area that this thing might be using for shelter. In fact, approximately 100 ft in the direction in which the entity is walking there is a large rock overhang we used to get under to get out of the rain when I played in these woods as a child. It looks straight over my parents house. Behind the entity is an incline to the ridge line of the mountain and a large rock wall with a drop of several hundred feet. P. S. - In case I failed to mention in the initial email, my father’s property is posted for no trespassing, very few individuals are permitted to be in those woods."

Braxton County, West Virginia, is the site of the "Braxton County Monster" reports of September 12, 1952, otherwise known as the "Flatwoods Monster" or "Green Monster" encounter.

Dragon-shaped Flying Object Appears in Jilin Province

At about 6 p.m. on August 6, two students walked out of their library in Jilin University and looked up. “Look! A flying dragon appears in the sky!” A student named Li captured an image of the dragon on his picture-phone, providing the second instance of photo documentation of a dragon flying over China so far this summer. “When I was walking out of the library, I saw a bright, animal-shaped object flying in the sky, heading southeast. It was incredibly dazzling, just like a gigantic dragon. I immediately took a picture of this unusual event on my cellphone,” said excitedly Li, a student at Jilin University, Jilin province.

Li captured what he believes to be a dragon on his phone camera and began passing it around the University two days later. In the middle of the photo is a distant-looking dragon-shaped object, complete with four limbs and a tail. As they were leaving the library that evening, Li’s girlfriend Xiaobin suddenly yelled, “Look! A flying dragon appears in the sky!” A glowing, red dragon-shaped flying object streaked across the sky, illuminating the evening sky just after the sun had disappeared from sight. Dragon-shaped Flying Object Appears in Jilin Province

A similar occurrence was reported a few years ago.

A photo of two peculiar dragon-shaped objects taken from a plane flying over Tibet’s Himalayas piqued many users’ interest when displayed on a Chinese website. The photographer is an amateur.

On June 22, 2004, the photographer went to Tibet’s Amdo region to attend the Qinghai-to-Xizang Railroad laying ceremony, and then took a plane from Lhasa to fly back inland. When flying over the Himalayas, he accidentally caught these two "dragons" in a picture that he took. He called these two objects "the Tibet dragons."

Looking at the photo, these two objects appear to have the characteristics of crawling creatures: The bodies seem to be covered by scales, the backs have spine-like protuberances, and also they have gradually thinning rear ends. Although the photo caught only a portion of the entire scene, it was sufficient to create the appearance of two gigantic dragons flying in the clouds.

Rash of UFO Sightings Over Poland

Recently the attention of many people in Poland was drawn by crop circles that began appearing since the first days of July 2006. But it doesn't mean that anything else occurred. For a long time Poland - Slavonic country in the heart of Europe, torn between East and West, was a stage of various UFO events. 2006 also abound in UFO observations.

Dozen of crop circles appear this year in Poland - some less and some more clever and astounding, but there were also many spectacular UFO sightings. Of course some of them were released by unreliable sources or were clear hoaxes. Many of them need further investigation.

We would like to present some photos and sighting reports received by us in late July 2006.

Oklahoma May Be A Bigfoot Stomping Ground

CLEAR BOGGY CREEK, Okla. An old legend is emerging from the woods once again: During the last week there have been multiple sightings of a "Bigfoot" in rural Oklahoma.

Store owner Larry Watson set-up cameras hoping to catch a glimpse of the elusive creature. He captured several photos that show a large, hairy animal wandering about a wooded area.

While it is difficult to determine if it is a Bigfoot, a bear or a joke from the snapshots, two children said they spotted the strange beast at Clear Boggy Creek in Atoka County.

"It was tall, it was brown, it had long shaggy hair, long legs and long arms," said 13-year-old Morgan Whatley.

Officials initially passed Whatley's claim off as a case of an over-active imagination, until another sighting several days later.

Police said a woman in her 50s suffered an anxiety attack and had to be transported to a local hospital after spotting a sizable hairy creature in her yard.

In early July, there were several reports of a Bigfoot seen near Old Camp Maxey in Lamar County.

The Chase Vault (Moving Coffins of Barbados)

There is a vault in a West Indies cemetery that prefers its coffins in disarray. An entire family was buried within - the Chase family. One by one, family members both young and old would die and be carefully placed in their eternal resting place - until the father (rumoured to be one of the most hated men on the island) was interred. When the ground keepers opened the door to store him within, all the coffins seemed to have scattered themselves about the floor.

The strange occurrence happened again and again. Some reports say people could actually hear the coffins moving themselves while locked inside the cement sealed vault.

Many a strange thing has happened in the West Indies - not the least of which is the case of Barbados' self-moving coffins. The story goes that the family Chase had a crypt in a local cemetery to hold all the family members who'd passed on. The first to be housed in the edifice was Mrs. Thomasina Goddard in or around 1807. She was followed by two year old Mary Ann Chase in 1808 and then by another child - Dorcas Chase in 1812.

Those coffins were all very well behaved until the family head - Thomas Chase - was to be placed inside. Thomas, as we've already stated, is said to have been one of the more despised men on the island. When the crypt was opened to place him inside, the other coffins seemed to have moved themselves from their orderly places.

Those in the funeral party were angered at the finding, supposing heartless robbers to be responsible. This thought was soon abandoned as nothing was missing from the coffins, nothing of value had been placed inside in the first place, and (most significantly) the door to the burial site was a huge stone cemented in place. To open it, the cemetery workers quite literally had to do so with a hammer and chisel. The stone was also said to have been so big, a team of at least four men would be needed to move it. Confused, the townspeople placed the freshest body inside and resealed the vault.

The newest coffin was a 240 lb. lead coffin, an extremely difficult thing to toss about for anyone looking to drag it around until money fell out.

In 1816 another burial was to take place - this time for eleven year old Charles Brewster Ames. Again the coffins were everywhere but in their proper places. The 240 lb. lead coffin of Thomas Chase was also in the wrong location. The crypt had been completely sealed and, again, had no signs of tampering or forced entry.

52 days later, another burial was to take place in the crypt. A large crowd gathered for this one, and they weren't disappointed. This time the cement-sealed door was closely examined before opening, with no strange findings. Again the coffins had thrown themselves about. There was a difference this time in that the first coffin that had been placed inside - the only one made of wood - had been badly damaged by the tussle. A reverend was called in to check the scene, but left with no new insight. Once again the vault was sealed.

In 1819 another family burial was needed. The vault was opened with all the same results - except the wooden one found damaged the last time had not been moved one single inch. The governor of the island (Lord Combermere) had enough at this point and ordered his own investigation - nothing was found. This time sand was scattered on the ground to catch the footprints and movements of any pranksters. The governor's own seal was placed in the hardening cement, then the vault was ordered sealed until the next family tragedy.

But the governor couldn't wait that long.

Less than a year later the head-of-state ordered the crypt opened, this time only in front of himself and several friends. The seal was perfectly intact upon arrival, but the coffins were still scattered. Some of them had even flipped upside down, and one was lying halfway up the stairs leading to the door. The sand so carefully placed before gave away no footprints or signs of water. The governor then ordered the coffins removed to a new burial site, and the crypt was left open. It's standing open and empty to this very day.

We don't know about you, but we're not scared of it at all.

Ghost Hunters Investigate Central Fla. Home

Paranormal investigators are trying to determine if a strange floating object caught on videotape and an unexplained noise on an audio recording at a home in Sanford, Fla., were made by a woman believed to be haunting the historic home.

In July, Local 6 News featured a home for sale in Sanford that several people believe is haunted by a woman who moves items and slams cabinets shut inside the 1921 structure.

A volunteer ghost hunter team located in Florida, The Peace River Ghost Trackers, noticed the story about the house online and decided to spend a night inside the home.

"Hopefully what we'll see in the monitors is a shadow, an apparition, which is the Holy Grail -- capturing the apparition of someone walking past the camera," Peace River Ghost Tracker spokesman Scott Walker said.

"Walker must determine whether a floating ball of light (caught on tape) is a ghostly orb or a particle of dust," Local 6 reporter Mike DeForest said.

Ghost hunter Ellen Dvorak said before she can prove a ghost exists she must first try to disprove unusual activity -- such as a door in the house that mysteriously opens apparently because it does not completely close, the report said.

"Usually, 99 percent of the time, the spirits are very friendly," Dvorak said. "They might get your attention by making noises, touching you, poking you or whatever."

During their stay at the Sanford home, the ghost trackers found no obvious signs of paranormal activity, DeForest said.

"But, in an audio recording that they plan to examine further, they think they might hear the ghost trying to communicate," DeForest said.

Paranormal Sleuths to Visit Library Park

If you believe in ghosts, you may want to steer clear of Library Park.

A Westport-based paranormal investigation society, the Smoking Gun Research Agency, said it has received several reports of ghostly activity in the park on Grand Street.

The group plans to "spook" around the area this afternoon at 3 if the weather cooperates, said the agency's director, Jon Nowinski.

The city's first burial ground, known as the Grand Street Cemetery, was on the site of what is now Library Park. It was the only burial ground in the city from 1686 well into the 1800s. As many as 2,000 graves reportedly remain in the park.

The agency has received seven "experience reports" from people who say they've had contact with the great beyond, Nowinski said.

"What we've had is information from people who have been walking in the park and had strange feelings, or driven by the park and thought they saw a figure within the park,'' he said. "One person who was walking outside of the park wall claimed they saw a figure kneeling at a headstone. It was one of those things where they looked back and the figure was gone, but they were certain of what they saw."
