Tatamagouche - When Mathieu Giguere looked across Tatamagouche Bay in mid-January and saw a brightly lit ship it didn't seem like anything out of the ordinary.
The 17-year-old was used to viewing late night harbour cruises on the St. Lawrence River near his home in Sorel-Tracy, Quebec, but soon he realized the bay was blocked by ice causing him to question what he was staring at.

As most readers know, we were recently made aware of certain remarks about the Cassiopaeans made by the authors of The Stargate Conspiracy
which resulted in a response by us (Ark and Laura). (See: Picknett and Prince on the Cassiopaeans
In the previous series of comments, in response to such cavalier dismissal by said authors, we made a remark as follows:
Again, I am more disappointed in the work of two of my favorite authors rather than being offended. Nevertheless, to make such comments as they have, in a public forum, without even being aware (obviously) of the totality of the material they are criticizing, its source, its context, and the context of the matters being discussed on these pages (not to mention by whom they are being discussed), is reprehensible demagoguery of the most insidious sort.
We find, in this, the idea that these authors are free and independent thinkers, proponents of remarkable new ideas, and thorough research may have to be revised. We even begin to wonder if they are not part of the "damage control" arm of the very "Stargate Conspiracy" itself? (Even if unconsciously.)

Many people undoubtedly have seen the cheesy science fiction film Stargate, which seems to have been far from a box office smash. The film basically involved discovery of a mysterious metallic gate which seems to be the conduit for a wormhole which leads to a planet light years away. The action heroes of the film, military men and a nerdy Egyptologist, go through the gate, only to find themselves on a desert planet that looks a lot like ancient Egypt. Sure enough, on this planet seems to be a race of people who live in terror of an extraterrestrial overlord which seems to have been taken by the ancient Egyptians as their god Ra. As in any typical Hollywood film, the good guys triumph over the nasty Ra and send his pyramidal spaceship packing.
Deep questions seem to be raised by the film, such as an extraterrestrial origin for Egyptian culture, but they are quickly shucked in favor of typical popcorn fodder - lots of explosions and Arab-looking extras getting blown to smithereens. The film seems to have lent itself well to its low-budget TV serialization, which involves the actor (Dean Anderson) who played "MacGuyver" in the lead role. Neither the film nor the TV series ever seem to get very deep - they focus too heavily on sci-fi shoot-em-outs to probe into the deep philosophical and esoteric terrain of the current fascination with ancient Egypt, and such mysteries as the age of the Sphinx or the Pyramids.

It sounds like something out of a Hollywood blockbuster. But staff at a sewage works have called in a ghostbuster because they are being stalked by a zombie-like figure who roams the underground tunnels.
Workers at Southern Water's treatment plant in Eastbourne, East Sussex, said they have been scared to enter tunnels after being followed about by a "humanoid figure" as they went about their jobs.
Mark Wey, a sewage treatment worker, got permission from his bosses to hire a paranormal investigator to launch an investigation into the sewage spirits.
Mr Wey hired parapsychologist Michael Kingscote who paid the tunnels a visit.
The clairvoyant said: "There seems to be one particular area that's giving people the creeps. People have seen and felt things."
Carteret, New Jersey / Arthur Kill, New York Lights
July 14, 2001 (Evening)
Unidentified objects appeared as lights in a huge V-type formation moving silently through the air over the Arthur Kill Waterway (just South of Newark International Airport). Witnessed by hundreds of onlookers, including police officers and a church reverend, the sighting was reported the next day by every major news organization. The event was video taped, and also corresponds to a missing-time experience reported by a man in Fort Lee, New Jersey.
