'Boogeyman' series tries to find out if Morag the monster really exists

Morag is a close relative of Nessie.
A TV documentary is to investigate the existence of Scotland's other monster -Morag, who is reputed to live in Loch Morar in Lochaber.

More than 30 sightings of Morag date back to 1887 and at least 16 involve multiple witnesses.

In 1948 "a peculiar serpent-like creature about 20ft long" was reported by nine people in a boat, in the same place as the original 1887 sighting.

The best known encounter, in 1969, involved Duncan McDonnel and William Simpson, and their speedboat, with which they claimed to have accidentally struck the creature, prompting it to hit back. Mr McDonnel retaliated with an oar, and Mr Simpson opened fire with his rifle, whereupon it sank slowly out of sight.

They described it as being brown, 25 to 30 feet long, and with rough skin. It had three humps rising 18 inches above the loch's surface, and a head a foot wide, held 18 inches out of the water.

The Loch Ness Investigation Bureau expanded its search to include Loch Morar in February 1970.

Photograher Mirjeta Binoke captured this 'angel' above her home.
This extraordinary photograph taken by a resident of the hitherto unremarkable Greater London borough - apart from being the birthplace of England football captains Bobby Moore and John Terry of course - was taken by a local resident.

Mirjeta Binoke, 38, was in her back garden with friends recently when she looked up at the night sky and saw the moon flanked by four stars.

She thought it would make a nice picture and went indoors to get her camera phone.

"When we looked at the picture we saw this image there and everybody was amazed by it.

In 1992 a Winnipeg nurse said that she found two 'small human-like creatures' when she got home from work and was taken in a spacecraft on a trip around the Earth.
Do you believe?

Large flying objects, crop circles and alien abductions are part of a new study about UFO sightings in Canada.

A Winnipeg group called Ufology Research has compiled and analyzed reported sightings of unidentified flying objects across Canada over the last 25 years.

It found 14,617 celestial oddities have been spotted since the group started collecting data in 1989. Explanations or probable explanations were found for about half the sightings.

Research co-ordinator Chris Rutkowski said the group's work doesn't provide absolute proof about the existence of extraterrestrials.

But it raises questions.

"This is simply a phenomenon that's real, that people continue to report," Rutkowski said after the study was released Friday.

"And I believe that science should take a better look at what's going on because the (data) suggests the phenomenon isn't going away."

Unidentified Flying Object or UFO never stops fascinating the world. And this time it has driven the UFO believers into a state of frenzy.

Till date, there have been three videos taken recently from the orbit and they appeared to show mysterious objects which some people believe to be the evidence of extraterrestrial life.

As first reported by the Houston Chronicle, devoted UFO viewers reported twice in the past week that they could spot an Unidentified Flying Object near the International Space Station, through NASA's live webcam. The videos have gone viral.

The first event occurred in August 4. On that day blogger Scott Waring of UFO Sightings Daily witnessed a "glowing disk" on the live feed.

"Hey everyone, I was watching the live cam and caught this glowing disk in the distance," Waring wrote in his blog post. "I took a screenshot of the UFO and enlarged it. It has a long line down its middle and a dome on its top," Waring wrote.

Farmer may hold clue to 36-year Frederick Valentich plane mystery

This photograph was taken off Cape Otway 20 minutes before pilot Frederick Valentich went missing.
Investigators have shed new light on one of ­Australia's greatest aviation mysteries.

Almost 36 years to the month that Victorian pilot Fred Valentich vanished without a trace, an independent researcher says there is evidence suggesting the 20-year-old's Cessna was spotted in the sky over South Australia - attached to a UFO.

The Victorian UFO ­Action group wants help to identify a farmer near Adelaide who reportedly ­witnessed the 30m craft hovering over his property the morning after Mr Valentich went missing.

It is claimed the Cessna was stuck to the side of the craft, leaking oil. The farmer even scratched the plane's registration number on to his tractor but never came forward with the information because he was ridiculed by the few friends he told.

The theory has sparked furious debate as the nation's leading UFO investigators prepare for a national conference in Melbourne next month.

WHERE DID HE COME FROM?: Petra Brooks, of Georgia in the United States, is adamant no one was walking past when she took this photo. Even NZ Skeptics admits the photo does not look as if it has been faked.
A team of Wellington ghost-hunters have been left stumped after being asked to investigate an international mystery.

James Gilberd, leader and co-founder of Strange Occurrences - a Wellington-based paranormal unit that investigates haunted homes, historic buildings and photos - was sent a photo by a woman in the United States who believed she had captured the ghost of a soldier on camera.

Gilberd, a photographer by trade, like most of his team, said: "I don't know much about finding ghosts, but I know photographs."

Petra Brooks, from Georgia, took a photo of her granddaughter while waiting for July 4 fireworks to start. While deleting some photos, she found a picture of what she believed was a ghostly soldier figure.

She sent an email to Gilberd, asking: "Is this truly a spirit I captured?"

He ruled out PhotoShop but thought perhaps it was a real person walking past and a case of "selective attention" - where the person taking the photo doesn't notice other things.

However, both Brooks and the man sitting beside her were adamant no one was walking past at the time.

Gilberd concluded: "We think the semi-silhouetted figure is definitely a human figure, not something caused by pareidolia or any combination of photographic anomalies.

"If we accept the corroborated declaration that there was no actual unaccounted-for human present when the photo was taken, then we have a picture of some kind of spirit or ghost - a historical trace of a soldier, perhaps."

The contrail was moulded by winds - shaping its right unusual angles
Residents were left shocked after discovering a SQUARE shaped cloud floating over their homes this weekend.

Homeowners in Exeter, Devon wasted no time snapping photographs for Facebook and excitedly posting on Twitter about the flying carpet shaped cloud hanging over the city.

The sharp-edged cloud formation was first spotted on Saturday afternoon and gained mainstream attention when it was tweeted by Laura Gilchrist, an employee at the Met Office.

She posted: "So this evening, over Exeter, there was a rhombus-shaped cloud".

But those looking for a sensational or supernatural explanation for the water vapour suspended in the shape of Aladdin's flying carpet are set to be disappointed.

A Met Office spokesman reassured residents that the cloud just an oddly-shaped contrail - the man-made clouds formed by the water vapour blasted from a plane's jet engine as it moves through the air.

People walk through crop circles shaped into a cornfield near Raisting, southern Germany
They have long been a source of mystery.

But one land owner in Germany has quashed rumours that crop circles that appeared in his fields are anything other than students having fun.

Thousands of tourists have trekked to see the designs on Bavarian farmer Chrisoph Huttner's wheat field in Weilheim.

The ornate design was discovered by a balloonist last week and news of the find quickly spread online.

Huttner told the dpa news agency he didn't create the circle himself - but suggested it was the work of students who were on summer holiday nearby.

The crop circle has a 246-feet diameter and is made up of a complex pattern.

The chair appears to move of its own accord - or perhaps there is a ghostly explanation?
The spooky goings on apparently took place just hours after a psychic medium took to the stage in Romford. Coincidence? Almost certainly..

The footage from a security camera at the Brookside theatre reportedly shows a chair moving by itself, as well as floating orbs flying across the screen in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Manager Jai Sepple said he 'didn't know whether to laugh or cry' when he watched the tape back.

He told the Romford Recorder he had been the last to leave on Saturday night, and had straightened all of the chairs before he went home.
