Black Cat

El Chupacabra? Mysterious 'beast' thought to be roaming Scottish Highlands stripping all the flesh off sheep and eating them

Crofter Susan Mackay with the carcass of her dead
A large "cat" with a taste for mutton is believed to be roaming the most remote parts of northern Scotland, stripping sheep from their skin and leaving no trace but bones and wool.

The mysterious beast's latest catch is a hefty and healthy ewe of about 50kg. Her wool was neatly peeled off her skin before it was eaten. The carcass was found less than 100 yards from a croft in Swordly at the weekend.

The ewe belonged to Susan Mackay, who is not the first crofter to fall victim to the unknown animal.

Retired Air Force Colonel spills the beans on UFO contact with Apollo 13 mission

Since we first turned our dreams of travelling to the moon into a reality, there has been controversy. Some believe that most of the landing footage was faked, and others believe we never even went there, despite there being plenty of evidence suggesting we did. But here's the tricky part — some of the footage from various Apollo missions might indeed have been faked or even "refurbished." Many insiders have also accused NASA of doing things like this, but, based on the information we have from sources like these, and many others, it seems the problem is not that we didn't get to the moon, but rather what we found — and concealed from the public — when we got there.

In fact, the Russian government has accused the U.S. of concealing film footage. Agency insiders, like Norman Bergrun (view some of his publications for NASA, where he worked for more than a decade, here), or Bob Dean, United States Army Command Sergeant Major, who also served at the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) of NATO as an intelligence analyst, are a few out of many.

"Ladies and gentlemen, my government, NASA, which many of us in the United States say stands for Never A Straight Answer, proceeded to erase 40 rolls of film of the Apollo Program — the flight to the Moon, the flight around the Moon, the landings on the Moon, the walking guys here and there. They erased, for Christ's sake, 40 rolls of film of those events. Now we're talking about several thousand individual frames that were taken that the so-called authorities determined that you did not have a right to see. Oh, they were 'disruptive,' 'socially unacceptable,' 'politically unacceptable.' I've become furious. I'm a retired Command Sergeant Major. I was never famous for having a lot of patience."

Alien megaship or lens reflection? Live NASA footage spurs UFO claims

Footage of a mysterious bright object caught on a NASA feed from the International Space Station (ISS) has excited conspiracy theorists who say the stream has been altered to hide an "alien megaship."

In the video taken from an ISS camera feed, what has been described as a "cigar-shaped" UFO appears to hover above the Earth, with two objects visible below it.

Screenshots and portions of the livestream were uploaded to YouTube by Streetcap1. "I thought I was seeing things. I had to be quick," they wrote. "The dimming at the end was sudden and my guess is they [NASA] turned down the brightness a little."


Cube UFO appears over Texas town near secret Army research base

Comment: Though this story goes back to 6/15, it is interesting nonetheless. See another cube ufo sighting from a recent SOHO image at the end of the article.

A bizarre and sinister-looking perfect black cube has terrified residents of a Texas town after it appeared in the skies above White Sands - the USA's most secret military installation.

The terrifying black cube was snapped over El Paso on the Texas border just a few miles from White Sands - the infamous US military testing site where the world's first Atomic bomb was detonated.

Almost all the experimental weapons research carried out ay White Sands is highly classified. The results of the cutting edge research only become public decades later.

The famous Roswell UFO site where aliens are reported to have crash-landed on earth is also just a few miles away from El Paso over the border into New Mexico.

Comment: And from UFO Sightings Daily, we get this:
UFO Cube Right Now Near Earths Sun!

Date of sighting: March 4, 2017, 01:06

Location of sighting: Earths Sun

I found the UFO cube again in SOHO images. I use a special app to find it. I have told you that many times before, but not every time because it gets tiresome repeating myself. But for all the noobs out there, I use an app on my iPad and iPhone to do this. Its called, "SOHO Viewer" and is free. If you download it now, you can see this cube right now!!! It refreshes the photos every 15 minutes or so and so if you want to see this cube, its right there right now! You can see it for yourself. Its black. The app is at the Apple app store. Scott C.

Earthquake in Phoenix, Arizona? Residents report shaking, loud booms March 2nd

What was that? Many Valley residents reported shaking and loud booms on Thursday night.
Dear AZ, was that an earthquake? @abc15

— Deborah Geesling (@deborahgeesling) March 3, 2017
The United States Geological Survey has not reported any earthquakes in Arizona in the past 24 hours. So the question must be raised...what was it and how did so many people around the Valley feel it?

The Arizona Geological Survey said they could not identify any large earthquakes in the area. It is possible there was a very small earthquake that occurred and it was not detectable.

Scottsdale resident Maria Rodriguez said she felt the shaking from her home. "We felt the doors shake, like somebody was trying to push them in, but we didn't see the doors move," Rodriguez said.

Luke Air Force Base said they do not have any information about sonic booms in the area. Air Force captain Becky Heyse said there was an aircraft flying around 8:30 p.m. Thursday, but it was "unlikely" the jet caused a sonic boom in the northeast Valley because they were flying 60 miles west of Glendale.

Research geologist Jeri Young said there weren't any signs of a earthquake in the Valley. "There were some signatures of maybe a man-made disturbance," Young said. "We can't really say where it occurred or what it was based on our equipment."


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

© Evening Times
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:

Shocking moment 'possessed' girl screams and writhes while pastor performs harrowing exorcism to expel her 'demons'

DISTURBING footage shows a 13-year-old girl being held down by her family while screaming in agony in an apparent exorcism.

Filmed in the deeply Catholic country of Nicaragua, the video shows a priest trying to expel 'demons' from the 'possessed' teen.


UFO statistician: Sightings at an all-time high

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

David Paulides
"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)
