US: UFOs on Cape Fear?

A Hope Mills man was recently on the Discovery Channel after claiming to see UFOs while fishing at the Cape Fear River.

Christopher Bledsoe Sr, former owner of Bledsoe Properties, was the centerpiece of a documentary-style show on the cable channel called, UFOs over Earth.

The show, which ran on Dec. 13, featured UFO investigator interviews with Bledsoe, who claimed he, his son and three friends saw three bright yellow circular objects hovering over a wooded area as they were fishing on the Cape Fear River in 2007.


Argentina: UFOs and 'Katchinas'

Katchinas in Argentina? Uncanny similarities between pictographs, Katsinam and... robots!

The pictographs shown above are found in Argentina, in "The Cave of the Spirits", one of several grottos in Cura Malal, part of Sierra de la Ventana, a mountain range rising East of La Pampa, in the Buenos Aires province.

Argentinian scholar Fabio Picasso wrote about them in an essay on Mapuche spiritual traditions published in the Latin American Fortean Files website. There is a striking similarity of the pictograph on the left with a Hopi Masa'u Katsina from Harvard's Peabody Museum katsinam collection. In both the "techno-pictos" and the wood carving we are faced with designs that look a whole lot like our contemporary idea of a robot.


UFO traffic and Australia's Bermuda Triangle

On the 7th of October 2008 the passengers on Qantas flight 72 from Singapore to Perth experienced something that may well haunt them for the rest of their lives. As the Airbus A330-303 was travelling over the isolated town of Exmouth in Western Australia the pilots received a faulty message and auto-pilot was automatically disengaged. The plane climbed 60m before pitching down and plunging 200m in a terrifying 20 seconds in an uncommanded manoeuvre. The pilots steadied the plane however a few minutes later the craft again plunged another 120m in 16 seconds.

Passengers were pinned to the ceiling and flung throughout the craft. There were 74 injuries, some relatively serious. The plane then made emergency landing at the mysterious nearby Learmonth Airport.

UFO over the Llaima volcano in Chile - any connection to the massive December sightings in Santiago?

On December 6, three days before the outstanding UFO sightings over Santiago de Chile were recorded, Army sergeant Fernando Yáñez Muñoz snapped the above photo of what seems to be a starship hovering over the 3,125 meters high Llaima volcano, within the Congûillio National Park in southern Chile. One of the largest and most active volcanoes in Chile, the Llaima erupted violently on the first day of January, this year. Sergeant Munoz was on military duty at the time and with other officers who presumably witnessed the UFO as well.

Pennsylvania UFO Wave, 2008

There appears to be an ongoing series of UFO sightings, or wave, in the state of Pennsylvania. I have been in contact with one of MUFON's Field Investigators, Bob Gardner, about these sightings, and Bob is currently at work investigating these reports. Here is a brief history of what has been going on there.

The Bucks County Courier Times reported that MUFON was indeed going to send researchers into the Lower Bucks area following four separate reports of anomalous objects in the area. Earlier this year, on January 27, Falls police officer Jeffrey Omlor was sent to Don Pablo's on Route 1 in response to a 911 call about a strange craft that "hovered like an octopus." By the time the policeman arrived, the object was gone.

Also on that day, MUFON received a report from a pizza deliveryman, who described seeing an object over a line of trees in Vermillion Hills. The UFO was reported as "blinking red, white, and green lights.


Tlalnepantla, Mexico - Fourth UFO Orb

My friend and contact has filmed yet again a great orb UFO over Mexico. The fourth such film in a short amount of time. It appears this region of Tlalnepantla, Mexico is on the rise in regards to strange UFO orb activity of late.

The UFO orb is seen above a residential complex hovering above throughout the two minute twenty five second clip. Although the footage does become a little bit shaky you can get an idea of what he is filming , by continuing to watch the UFO orb footage. He even slows it down so you can get a closer look at the UFO orb

Texas, US: Foul Smell at Middle School persists for 18 months

Something stinks at a West El Paso middle school, and the school district has spent 18 months trying to figure out what.

The odor began appearing in the boys' locker room last September, right after Brown Middle School opened. The smell then moved to other parts of the building. "It would come and go, that's what was so bad about it, it was hard to track, it was like a ghost," said principal Victoria York.

The El Paso Independent School district tried a number of ways to detect and remove the smell, from replacing toilets to hiring private contractors, but it wasn't until recently that they determined it was coming from outside.
