Erebus crash blamed for Antarctica 'ghosts'

A supernatural experience in Antarctica on Friday the 13th has left a winter worker convinced of the existence of ghosts on the frozen continent.

American Allie Barden was sent to work in a stores building at McMurdo Station, the United States base near New Zealand's Scott Base, and knew it was empty because it was padlocked from outside when she arrived.

"As soon as I entered, something was weird," she said.

"I took a couple of steps in (and) the hair on the top of my head stood on end - footsteps upstairs; undeniably footsteps. A slow cadence of footsteps.

"I froze. It went from the back of the building to the front."

An airport official who declined to give his name said the Boeing-777 was en route from Paris to Hanoi when the crew decided to land because of a cracked windshield - the third time in less than two weeks that officials in Azerbaijan have cited a cracked windshield as the reason for an emergency landing at Baku's international airport.

One of the 13 cracked windshields at DIA on Friday, February 16th. Only the outer layer of the windshields were affected.

At Denver International Airport, spokesman Steve Snyder confirmed that about 12 airplanes sustained cracked windshields Friday as high winds buffeted the state, delaying some flights. Snyder said officials were "baffled'' by the incidents and found no evidence of flying debris that could have caused the cracks.

Kenya: Village Haunted As Children Suffer From Strange Disease

Residents of a village in Kisii are living in fear of an unknown enemy who has inflicted their children with a strange ailment.

They are even afraid of talking about the strange attacks and are scared of praying, because they have been warned not to try it.

Seven children in the village have been afflicted, and exhibit strange symptoms bordering on epilepsy and hysteria, uttering incomprehensible words. The residents now believe they have been hit by evil spirits.

They claim to have been warned by unknown people through letters that if they pray or continue to discuss what is happening to their children, they will all die and their flesh eaten at an undisclosed "feasting point".

Mr Charles Ongeri's family is one of those that have come face to face with the mysterious phenomenon that has made the victims' families and friends give up hope of medical or spiritual help. They just hope that all will be well some day and that what has befallen them will come to an end just as mysteriously as it started.

Ellensburg Unexplained

The expansive Ellensburg horizon has turned up more than just strong winds and sunny skies over the years.

Many residents have seen some strange things flying over the Kittitas Valley. A vast number are skeptics and think perhaps what they saw came possibly from the U.S. Army Yakima Training Center. Others are pretty sure what they saw was not from around this neck of the galaxy.

Chile: UFOs Reported Over Iquique

Two unidentified flying objects were recorded Saturday night from the Tierra de Campeones stadium during a match between Municipal Iquique and Temuco.

A journalist for a sports channel managed to capture the image and only became aware of the phenomenon two days later upon reviewing the recording. He realized that two UFOs could be seen flying very close to the moon.

The reporter was shocked when he inspected the images. According to his story, his attention was drawn to the brightness of the Moon as it appeared over Alto Hospicio. Due to this, he trained a high-resolution digital camera on Earth's satellite for 15 seconds. He was in the stadium and focused toward the east in the vicinity of Hospicio.

Canada: UFO spotters probe the paranormal in Maidstone, Saskatchewan

There's no hesitation in the man's hand as he sketches the shapes of the UFOs he has spotted near this rural Saskatchewan community over the years.

"Once you've seen them, you never forget. The images are burnt into your memory," he says, taking a sip from his coffee cup in the truck stop restaurant outside this small town near the Alberta border.

These experiences with the unknown are not so bizarre, according to a recent report. Numbers released by the Winnipeg-based Ufology Research Institute show Saskatchewan posted an all-time record of 98 reported UFO sightings, and Maidstone accounted for more than half of those reports. That's a big chunk of the total 736 reported sightings across Canada.

Let's call this particular UFO spotter Dave, as he doesn't want his real name used because he feels his creditability as a federal employee might be tarnished.
