High Strangeness


Cigar-shaped UFO spotted in Manchester, England (2011) (VIDEO)

In the clip, a small, pipe-shaped object can be seen floating around the clear blue sky in Denton, Manchester.

Perhaps this isn't that surprising - Manchester was named the UFO capital of Britain earlier this year.

Adorned with lights that flash from white, to blue, to purple, the mysterious object is long and narrow, rather than the disc-shape commonly associated with UFOs.

The strange sight was caught on camera as the object flew "higher than planes," according to the owner of the footage.

Posting the clip on social media, he wrote: "Knowing how high it appeared in the sky, I'm guessing its size was massive."

He added the possible UFO was visible in the sky for around 40 minutes before it flew so high it could no longer be seen.

The video, which has resurfaced online after being first posted in 2011, has garnered significant attention from believers in aliens and the supernatural.

Two reported sightings of Loch Ness monster this month

We only need to calculate the time and distance between two different monster sightings reports.

This week has been marked by not one, but two reports of sightings of the mysterious Monster of Loch Ness. It is especially remarkable, considering that reports come from... opposite ends of the United Kingdom!

The first report has been published by the Mirror on August 18th. It cites Calley Tulleth, 28, a mother of three, who was on her holiday at Loch Ness with her husband and children. She was reportedly having lunch on the balcony looking over Loch Ness, when she saw ripples on the surface of the lake, so she ran for the camera.

"I wasn't scared but my eyes popped out of my face," the Mirror cites Tulleth saying. "It's not often you see a monster while on holiday."

Another report came just two days later, on August 20th. This one cites two friends who also claim they managed to capture what they say looks like Nessie.


UFOs are proliferating Saturn's rings, claims NASA scientist

This isn't the first time that the scientist has made such claims, but he warns that the situation is "critical" with living alien spaceships in our solar system "proliferating" faster than ever.

Dr. Norman Bergrun, a distinguished mechanical engineer at NASA's Ames Research Center is once again making headlines for his argument that extraterrestrial life exists within the earth's solar system arguing that UFOs that were first spotted in Saturn's rings are "proliferating" to other planets that have rings including Uranus and Jupiter.

"What I found out is, these things inhabit Saturn, that's where I first discovered them, and they're proliferating. You can find them around Uranus and Jupiter. Wherever you see some rings, that's where I see the aircrafts, I call them a ring maker," explained Dr, Bergrun.

"I say that it is electromagnetic because I can identify streamline patterns with respect to it that I knew were what we called 'potential lines' and that says it was electrical," said Dr. Bergrun. "I could tell that those lines demarked the outside of an object."

The scientists argues that the some of the footage near the rings shows "exhaust" emanating from alien aircraft and he warned that things are getting "critical" in deep space as these space ships continue to proliferate throughout the solar system.

Footage appeared to show the woman lying on the floor convulsing as a member of the church tries to perform another 'exorcism'
A TV news crew captured this bizarre footage of a woman 'becoming possessed' after priests performed an 'exorcism' on her neighbour.

The incident was filmed as journalists reported on a resident in Tipitapa, Nicaragua, central America, who had been suffering from 'months of strange behaviour.'

They reported how the 43-year-old woman, named as Herminia, had been 'tormented by evil spirits ' for three months that left her aggressive toward people that approached.

She was filmed wild-eyed and behaving bizarrely before throwing a shoe at neighbours who entered her room.

Nina Kulagina: Psychokinetic powerhouse or fake?

Nina Kulagina
Psychokinesis is the ability to move material objects using the power of mind alone. It may sound like the stuff of science fiction, but there is ample evidence to suggest that humans are capable of moving objects with their minds. Should this prove true, it would be fascinating to say the least, and would suggest that all human beings have this potential. Of course, the implications of psychokinesis for humanity as a whole would be immense, and we as a species may not be ready to handle them just yet. We would need to be at a pretty peaceful place within to harness such an ability responsibly. This is why new discoveries are useless without a good consciousness behind their use, and why we say real change comes from within.

What type of evidence is there? In today's world, something must be peer-reviewed in order to be considered credible. The unfortunate part about this is that science as an institution has become highly politicized, plagued by corruption and the publication of false data. When it comes to topics within the realm of parapsychology, however, results are more reliable. No agenda is driving these experiments, and so they are conducted and their results measured objectively — unlike many corporately funded medical studies. Scientific fraud is important to mention any time we are talking about 'peer-reviewed' scientific literature, so the next time you decide to brush off other publications (even though they are usually all 'peer-reviewed' in some form), take a second to think about this fact. You can see specific examples of this corruption in this article.

Glasgow police officers baffled after witnessing paranormal activity including levitating dog

The house in Rutherglen, Glasgow, has officers spooked
Perplexed officers on a call to a disturbance saw lights going off, clothes flying across a room and a dog, which was playing in the garden, suddenly perched on top of a 7ft hedge.

Police investigating reports of disturbances at a house were left stunned when they witnessed paranormal activity.

The officers witnessed clothes flying across a room, lights going off and when they went back on the lampshades were upside down and oven doors opening and closing. Even a chihuahua dog which was playing in the garden was then discovered sitting on top of a seven-foot hedge.

The family who live at the property had called the police in a panic. They endured two days of the bizarre occurrences before moving out of the property in Rutherglen, South Lanarkshire.

The situation has been discussed at high levels within Police Scotland, with senior officers perplexed as to how they best handle the incidents.

A police source said:
"These were incidents that were witnessed by our own officers. Incidents that are not easily explained.

"One problem we've got is where we go from here as no crime has been established, so what else can we do but deal with any reports of disturbances.

"But officers with more than 20 years' service are saying they've never seen anything like this. It really is something that down-to-earth police officers are having trouble getting their heads round.

"How do you handle what, despite us liking to use the word, has been described as a poltergeist."

Around 75 of the mystery fish showed up in Mr Bain's garden.
An Aberdeenshire man has asked for help in identifying fish which have appeared outside his house.

Kevin Bain found about 75 small fish in his back garden on Thursday.

He believes their arrival is the result of a waterspout which sucked the animals from the sea and dropped them on his property.

Mr. Bain said he thinks the two-inch fish are sand eels but is trying to find out more.

A man filmed the appearance of strange black coils in the waters of in Russia's Chelyabinsk region. The creature that apparently appears on the video was dubbed the "Miasnessi Monster," U24.ru website said.

Mikhail Nenarokov, a resident of the Miass district of the Chelyabinsk region, was kayaking on the lake, when he suddenly saw a few coils of unknown origin appearing from under the water. It appeared that there was a giant snake underneath the water surface, the man said.

"To be honest, I did not have the courage to move closer than 20 meters," the man said. He admitted that it could be the divers as it seemed to be the most adequate explanation to the phenomenon.

However, according to the eyewitness, he was observing the movement of a giant snake for 20 minutes. "I have filmed three videos from three angles. Honestly, it was a scary sight," the man said.

The monster was dubbed "Miasnessi", similar to Nessie - the legend of Loch Ness.

The Truth Perspective: X-Files, Mothman and the inimitable John Keel

© Fox
In 1975, John Keel published his strange and classic Mothman Prophecies about the even stranger events he experienced and investigated in 1966-67 in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. The book, and the articles he wrote nearly 10 years before, were decades ahead of their time, identifying and taking seriously countless topics that most people ignored or wrote off as fantasy, but which are now being taken seriously by many in the field of ufology. Today, we took a broad look at the book and the phenomena Keel described.

We also discussed the latest iteration of the X-Files TV show (see SOTT editor Ennio Adams' series on the show starting here): what it gets right, and what it gets wrong, and why it matters. In the last half hour we gave brief updates on the situations in Syria and Ukraine, as well as the U.S. presidential election. Tune in!
