The World for People who Think

High Strangeness


Sightings are at an all-time high, according to UFO researcher

It's well-known that strange UFO phenomena have been going on for some time. People have reported these objects for decades. There's even reason to believe that UFOs were spotted centuries ago. However, what's more surprising than the UFO reports themselves, is how often they're occurring in the modern world. Apparently the number of UFO sightings has been escalating in recent years.

According to Sam Monfort, a US PhD student who collected data provided by the National UFO Reporting Center, UFO sightings are at an all-time high. For instance, there were 10,000 claimed sightings in 1990, but by 2010 there were roughly 45,000 sightings every year.

He also noted that the type of UFOs that people claim to see have changed over time. For most of the twentieth century, UFO sightings mainly consisted of flying saucers and cigar shapes, but these days most people describe them as strange lights.

Bright flashing lights appear over Gourock, Scotland

Tele readers are being asked to help solve a mystery after intriguing video footage emerged of flashing bright lights in the hills across from Gourock.

An eyewitness filmed the lights on his mobile as he stood in Trumpethill looking towards Kilcreggan last Thursday just after 5pm. The man, who asked not to be named, was spooked by the odd sight and hopes Tele readers can shed some light on the bizarre sight.

He said: "I've never seen anything like that before. The lights caught my eye as I looked out from St Andrews Drive. It looks like they are in the skies above Kilcreggan You can see from the video that there are several flashing lights, then more appear. It's very strange. I hope someone can help solve this mystery - maybe we can call in Mulder and Scully from the X-Files!"

The 55-second video clip shows several lights flashing in the sky before they disappear.

Comment: A second video of the same event was reported from Greenock:

UFO sightings have reached an all-time high, according to statistician Sam Monfort.

Monfort collated sightings recorded by the National UFO Reporting Centre, a US organisation that records sightings worldwide, from the beginning of the 20th century.

And there's been a bit of an upward trend...

Interestingly though, Sam has observed that spotting of flying saucers have been on the downturn, despite the rise in sightings over all. Maybe extraterrestrials have just upgraded?

In terms of geography, Sam says that the US seems to be the most prone to UFO sightings all year round. The States actually report 300 times as many sightings than the the global average, according to his calculations.

David Paulides - 'Ridiculous' number of missing kids in Oregon

"Every month in almost every state people go into the wilderness and don't come out"

Every year, hundreds of people are reported missing in national parks and forests, many of them children.

Most of those people are eventually found, whether alive or dead, but a small percentage of cases, including some in Oregon, are never solved.

The mysteries those cases present has one man wondering if there's a common denominator behind the disappearances that leave search and rescue crews scratching their heads.

David Paulides is forever rifling through newspaper archives and badgering federal agencies for public records. He's discovered more than 400 cases of people who wandered into the wilderness and never came back.

"Every month in almost every state people go into the wilderness and don't come out," Paulides said. "There are so many missing kids in Oregon, it's ridiculous." (See video here)


UFO almost collides with air force jet above crowd of people at aerobatics show in Chile

"Peekaboo earthlings! See what I can do?!"
The unidentified flying object was spotted during an air show in Chile last week

Incredible footage of a UFO almost colliding into a jet during an air show has emerged online.

The video was shot in Puerto Varas, Chile last Friday while the Chilean high aerobatics squad pulled off a series of stunts above a crowd.

While one of the Halcones Fach's military planes zooned upwards, the hundreds of people gathered below noticed a disc appear out of nowhere.

And astonishingly it appears to narrowly graze the Air Force jet as it flashes across the sky.


Six UFOs 'creep past' International Space Station before NASA 'cuts live feed'

Alien conspiracy theorists have gone into overdrive this weekend after a video emerged online allegedly showing a cluster of UFOs flying past the International Space Station.

The 31-second video appears to focus on the outside of the American station and within seconds, 'six large' glowing orbs crept past the camera.

CIA, remote viewing and the Stargate Project

Newly released archives from the CIA, containing some 13 million pages of declassified documents suggest in addition to tracking UFO sightings, in the early 70s, American intelligence agents via the legendary psychic Ingo Swann tried to find out what was happening on the planet Jupiter.

The Stargate Project was the code name for a secret US Army unit established in 1978 at Fort Meade, Maryland, by the Defense Intelligence Agency [DIA] and SRI International [a California contractor] to investigate the potential for psychic phenomena in military and domestic intelligence applications.

Ingo Douglas Swann was the man behind the Stargate project. He was a claimed psychic, artist, and author known for being the co-creator, along with Russell Targ and Harold Puthoff, of "remote viewing."

The idea of controlled remote viewing was a process in which viewers could view a location given nothing but its geographical coordinates, and was developed and tested by Puthoff and Targ with CIA funding.

The recently released 13 page document on the official CIA website talks about one such session with Swann in which he reportedly transferred his consciousness to the planet Jupiter.

The experiment was controlled by Harold Puthoff and according to the account, during the experiment; Swann using the power of his thought visited the distant planet. The experiment was dated April 27, 1973.


A monster roamed around Nashville, Tennessee's streets in the 1880s

I went over to Fort Negley the other day to ask them about any possibly supernatural occurrences at the Fort and they said, for a site where hundreds of workers died and thousands of soldiers' bodies lay in shallow, impermanent graves until cemeteries could be found for them, the Fort is perhaps surprisingly pretty ghost-free. Some reenactors have reported experiences, but, if the dead of Fort Negley are roaming the grounds, they're staying out of the way of park visitors. Unless the park rangers I was talking to were really ghosts? I didn't try to touch them or enquire into their vital status. So, I guess they could be. in which case, that place is really haunted.

Anyway, they told me there was one thing somewhat associated with Fort Negley that might not be supernatural, but was pretty odd. The Willapus Wallapus had been sighted near the Fort back when it was terrorizing Nashville. Did I know about that?

I did not, but I have since learned and Nashville, it's wild. But I think it was a real thing and I think, from the clues, someone could figure out what it was.

Okay, so, before we get started, here's a few things you need to know. The willapus wallapus, lower case, was the nickname for a huge machine that cities used to flatten out roads. It either was like a steamroller or it was a steamroller. I couldn't really tell from the descriptions, but it served that same purpose. That willapus wallapus is of no importance to this story.


Mysterious UFO swarm filmed flying in the skies of Hengrove, UK

Three video thumbnails showing UFOs
A swarm of mysterious lights has been spotted and filmed over Bristol in the latest in a string of UFO sightings. The orange blips were filmed gliding over houses in Hengrove by mum-of-one Kelly Maynard.

The intriguing footage was shared just days after a Bristol Post reader shared their theory that a BT tower in Purdown is a refuelling station for spaceships. A similar sighting was also recorded in January over Siston Common, near Mangotsfield.

"I looked up and there were several orange lights moving quite fast in the sky," said 36-year-old Kelly, who shared the footage to a Facebook page called 'The Universe'.

"It was about six or seven at night and I ran in and grabbed my phone. On my Facebook somebody said it was lanterns but then they saw the video and said they didn't know what it was. I have never seen anything like it. I could not believe it. I've got no explanation for it, so it must be something mysterious."

The video shows three orange blips moving through the sky, but Kelly said she actually saw ten to 15 of the unidentified objects before the camera started rolling. The footage was recorded on a Saturday night in January, Kelly said, but she decided to share it online this week in the hope of finding answers.
