The forest surrounding Alert Bay, B.C. on Cormorant Island is shown on Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2015. Locals say loud howling noises coming from the forest at night could be those of the mythical sasquatch.
A big, hairy mystery is unfolding in a remote community off the coast of northern Vancouver Island.

Alert Bay residents have been reporting strange screams and howls coming from a forest that surrounds the town - and some think they could be coming from a sasquatch.

Mackenzie Mountain said he recently recorded the unusual sounds on his cell phone at night on the backside of Cormorant Island.

We were on the back porch up on the back road and we heard it once, and I didn't get the recording, and the second time I got the recording," he said. "That was on the back porch. Very eerie."

Mountain isn't the only one who has heard the unsettling howls.

Researchers are still baffled by an unidentified flying object videotaped in Long Island, New York, months ago. The boomerang-shaped craft, which some believe was a drone, was filmed by an unidentified witness late on April 17.

The eyewitness submitted the video to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), an organization that investigates possible UFO sightings.

Residents in Swansea (pictured is Swansea Bay and The Mumbles) have been woken up by a mysterious air raid siren noise
A ghostly sound of an air raid siren has been waking people in hundreds of homes in a city that was heavily bombed by the Nazis 75 years ago.

Noise abatement officials launched an investigation into the mysterious noise which has been heard more frequently across Swansea, South Wales, in recent months, but admit it cannot be traced.

Reports of the wailing sound have stretched back for more than a year, with many residents in area of Townhill comparing it to a 'war or old factory siren'.


Remembering the famed 'alien encounter' witnessed by dozens of children in Zimbabwe

File photo of a playground. At the Ariel Primary School in Zimbabwe, on Sept. 16, 1994, dozens of children purportedly witnessed the landing of a disc-shaped craft in the schoolyard during their break and encountered two strange beings who emerged from the craft.
Yesterday was the 21st anniversary of a purported alien encounter that gained much attention worldwide before fading from the limelight. The impact of the event has remained vivid for the 60-plus students at the Ariel School in northeastern Zimbabwe and other locals who witnessed it.

A film titled the "Ariel Phenomenon" by filmmaker Randall Nickerson is due to be released this year. It includes new interviews with the students, who were deeply marked by the experience and recall it in detail to this day. The film also includes footage shot directly after the incident in 1994, showing the students discussing what they witnessed with Harvard psychiatrist John E. Mack. It was Mack's opinion, after extensive interviews with the witnesses, that they were not making it up.


Argentinian schoolboy writes uncanny predictive essay just hours before Chile earthquake and tsunami hit

Eight-year-old schoolboy Carlos Perez, who appeared to predict the Chilean earthquake in an essay he wrote just hours before it struck
  • Eight-year-old Carlos Perez wrote an essay while at school on Wednesday
  • Wrote about a tsunami in Chile which he handed in to his teacher in red ink
  • Just hours later an earthquake struck Santiago also causing a tsunami
  • Carlos sister Stefani said her brother had felt like it was going to happen
An eight-year-old schoolboy appeared to eerily predict the devastating tsunami in Chile which killed at least 13 people in an essay he wrote in class just hours before it struck.

Carlos Perez, a pupil at the Parish School in San Juan, Argentina, penned the essay called 'Tsunami in Chile' at school last Wednesday.

He said that he had a feeling that the quake and tsunami was going to happen and wrote the passage just hours before one million were forced to flee their homes.

Carlos, who underlined the title in red ink, wrote: 'There was a tsunami in Chile. Some Chileans manged to save themselves in a helicopter in the sky.'

His essay was accompanied with drawings of houses affected by flooding.

And just hours later a quake measuring 8.3 on the Richter scale hit the Chilean capital Santiago, which is the largest in the world so far this year.

A tsunami quickly followed, sending powerful waves flooding into coastal cities around the Pacific Ocean.

World Chess president claims he was abducted by aliens - and believes chess comes from space

They came in a flying saucer, picked me up, and I spent a whole day in outer space.

When Kirsan Ilyumzhinov wakes up every day, perhaps he wonders if this will be the day when his extraterrestrial friends will return to bestow new, earthshaking secrets of the universe on him.

That's right, you read it correctly -- his ET friends. And this isn't even a new revelation about the 53-year-old former president of the Russian republic of Kalmykia.

Ilyumzhinov is currently president of the International Chess Foundation (FIDE), a position he's held since 1995, after readily defeating former world chess champion Garry Kasparov last year for the job.

His background and position on UFOs and ETs will undoubtedly bring Ilyumzhinov under fresh scrutiny -- he's reportedly considering running for president of FIFA, the international governing body of football. "The suggestion has been made but ... for myself, I haven't decided anything about this issue yet," Ilyumzhinov said, according to the Associated Press.

During his Kalmykia presidency, Ilyumzhinov -- pictured above at a 2006 meeting in Moscow's Kremlin with Russian President Vladimir Putin (left) -- claimed he was abducted by extraterrestrials.

Ilyumzhinov says that, on an evening in September 1997, ETs wearing yellow spacesuits spirited him out of his Moscow home and took him to their spaceship. Here's part of an interview he gave in 2007 for an Al Jazeera news report, "Meet the President -- Kirsan Ilyumzhinov":
I was taken [from] my apartment in Moscow to this spaceship, and we went to some star and after that, I asked them, 'Please bring me back.' They are like people, like us. They have the same mind and the same vision. I talked with them and I understand that we are not alone in this whole world -- we are not unique.

I'm not a crazy man, but after I gave the first interview to Radio Freedom in Russia ... thousands -- not hundreds -- thousands of people wrote me letters and called on the phone, saying, 'Oh, Kirsan, you are a politician and you are not afraid to talk about it?'

Black triangle: was this the moment a man captured the famous Black Triangle UFO on camera?
On first inspection this video looks like someone has captured the light in his back garden and is passing it off as a brush with alien life.

But take a closer look and it pays a striking resemblance to the large, silent, black triangular objects that are known to hover over built up areas.

The footage was shot in the sky over a house in San Diego, California.


Edward Snowden says encryption could be squashing space signals from Aliens

Encryption has become a top priority for those wanting to protect their privacy online, but US whistleblower Edward Snowden says the security measure could be making it impossible to detect signals sent from...aliens.

Snowden's comments were made during an interview on the 'StarTalk' podcast of astrophysicist and science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson.

The whistleblower was speaking from Moscow via a robot video link called a "beam remote presence system." Controlling the robot from Russia, he was able to roll straight into Tyson's office at the Hayden Planetarium in New York.

Comment: Maybe during Snowden's stint with the NSA he learned a lot more about the Extraterrestrial presence here than he's letting on, and wants to seem circumspect on the subject so as not to detract from his main message? Then again, this bit of data may be all he really knows.

Whatever the case may be, there are a whole slew of reasons why humanity has been largely kept in the dark about this subject of subjects.

The mystery diamond-shaped object pulsated, getting brighter and bigger and then fading only to reappear again.

It was spotted over the sky in Merseyside at around 4.45am today.

Bigfoot with baby sighting reported in Virginia

He's a legend. Most say a myth. People hunt for him on reality television. But a Bedford County woman says her story is no joke. She called the Sheriff's Office about Bigfoot.

ABC 13 spoke to the woman by phone Thursday. She provided details on the condition of anonymity. The woman said she recently moved to the area and does not want to get a reputation with her new neighbors.

"I know this is going to sound crazy," said the woman in a call to Bedford dispatch on September 9.

The woman told the dispatcher she was driving up Route 43, toward the Peaks of Otter, around 11:40p.m. on September 9. She said her headlights hit something strange past Turkey Mountain Road, just before the first bridge.
