The story of the first known UFO photograph

The image you see above is the first known UFO image ever taken. It was taken during the winter of 1870 close to Mt. Washington in New Hampshire by an unknown photograph. The image shows what looks to be a cigar shaped UFO, the most common UFO shape of those days and it is actually a stereo image, or in other words 3D.

The original image was up on EBay 2002 and was sold at a price of $385 to one Samuel M. Sherman, who was the president of Independent-International Pictures Corp. Samuel have also stated that the image would not be locked in some collection, but will be available to scientists who wants to study it. 

Hunting ghosts (on TV)

Today, TV is overwhelmed by programs that hunt ghosts.  We got the most famous ones like the American long runner Ghost Hunters and their British counterpart Most Haunted, which is now in their 14:th season.  But we can’t forget the newcomers. On Travel Channel Ghost Adventures was a success and a fourth season is in production, and recently Discovery Channel’s Ghost Lab concluded its first season.  And we cannot not continue without mention A&E:s Paranormal State and just started Paranormal Cops. It’s a smorgasbord for the paranormal interested.

But with a lot of competition comes a big pressure of getting results, and for a ghost hunting show the pressure is even bigger. If no ghost shows up, no one will view the show and it will probably get cancelled. So in that perspective it’s understandable that some content in the show maybe made-up on purpose. And there have been some controversial, especially on the most famous one Ghost Hunters and on Paranormal State, with content that apparently been hoaxed. 

But still, I find those shows interesting and will still tune to watch ghost hunting shows when they air.

Weird UFO footage from Italy

This is something you don't see every day. It's a orb UFO that looks a little like a christmas ball to me. Is it real? I don't know?

Paranormal Case #1 - Bigfoot

Every continent on the planet has a half ape, half man creature lurking in the surroundings. In Australia there’s Yowie, in Indonesia the creature is called Orang Pendek and the Yeti who is said to live in the Himalaya’s. But probably the most famous of all is the North American primate called Bigfoot or Sasquatch as other will call it. The earliest sightings can be traced back to the late 19:th century and reports are today coming in from all over US but most are focused to the Pacific Northwest, including parts of the Canadian province of British Columbia.

And then there is the controversial Patterson-Gimlin footage that says to show a Bigfoot walking through Bluff Creek in northern California on October 20, 1967.

Evidence for:
Thousands witnesses has over the last decades reported sightings of an Bigfoot like. Even when it is possible to dismiss or explain many of these sightings, some remain unexplainable. Over the years, tracks have been found and been casted. The foot impressions found are in many cases huge, as you would expect with creature named Bigfoot. Sometimes just one or a few impressions is found, but there have been reported cases where you have been able to follow the tracks for miles.

Evidence against:
Neither bodies nor skeletons have ever been found. Most of the tracks found have turned out to be the works of prank artists. Then there is the problem of keeping a spice out of extinction. To have a healthy group of Bigfoot living there would have to be hundreds or maybe even thousands of creatures hiding in the thick forests of the Pacific Northwest, which is unlikely since no animal ever have been found

There is a lot of evidence for the existence of Bigfoot. The many eyewitnesses reporting startling accounts of Bigfoot encounters has to be taken into mind, even if many of those sightings are able to be identified as other big animals such as Black Bear who also resides in alleged Bigfoot territory. We’ve numerous of unexplainable tracks and the last we got Patterson-Gimlin film, said to be one of the best evidence for Bigfoot. But still we have no body or skeleton to show for the skeptics, so my conclusion of Bigfoot is that it does not exist and the alleged encounters are probably other large animals or just the cause of human paranoia.

The story of the man who shot an alien

One harsh November evening in 1961, Paul Miller and three buddies were on the way home after a hunting trip close to Minot, North Dakota. Suddenly, something they described as a “glowing silo” landed on a nearby field.

They first believed that it was an airplane that had crash landed, but they were forced to change their minds when the object suddenly disappeared. But when the four decided to drive away, the object reappeared and two humanoids stepped out of the craft.

Miller, who was struck by panic, shot one of the beings, apparently injuring it. The second being fled. On the way home, Miller and his team had a “blackout” and lost track of three hours. They then decided not to tell the story to anyone.

The next day when Miller arrived to his office (at the Air Force), he was visited by three men wearing black suits. They said that they were from the government and they began asking questions about his encounter and Miller later recalled “that it seemed that they knew everything about me, and they probably already knew my answers”.

Instead it seemed that they were more interested in what clothes Miller had worn at the time of the encounter and the men followed Miller home to take a look at them. The men made such a threatening impression on Miller that he didn't dare to tell his story in years.

A strange pair of UFO's over New Jersey

This UFO video was shot over the township of Woodbridge, New Jersey on November 11, 1999. At first, only a stationary ball of light is visable. Some time into the clip something looking like airship of light apperes. I don't know of any type natural phenomennon that looks like this, so it's remains a mystery.
