Flashback "Monsters" Emerge in Kanas Lake

"Look! Monsters!" A group of Beijing tourists cried in astonishment. The news claiming reappearance of "lake monsters" immediately spread throughout the region.


"Lake monsters" resurfaced

On the afternoon of June 7, (around 7:50 pm, Beijing time), seven tourists from Beijing were sailing on the Kanas Lake, a scenic spot in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, northwest China. When they stopped near Sandaowan for a photo, they suddenly spotted two dark objects, very large in size, springing out of the water, breaking a wave one meter high. They leapt forward one following the other, headed swiftly towards the middle of the lake and disappeared from sight in about two minutes. Then peace reigned again.


UK: UFO in Harlow?

Airport bound planes and birds are commonly seen in the skies above Harlow, but only 11 days ago there was a report of a UFO spotted above the town.

The sighting appeared on a Canadian website, which is run by independent UFO investigator Brian Vike.

The person who posted the sighting had been sitting outdoors at 12.30am with friends when they saw a mysterious grey object move across the night sky.

"It looked greyish in colour and was not moving very quickly," they said. "It was probably a few hundred feet high, H shaped, completely silent and no lights to be seen."

They go on to say that the object was seen above the Princess Alexandra Hospital for about five seconds before it moved behind trees towards the east.

U.S. Astronauts reveal encounters with apparent Extraterrestrials and UFOs

Rumors have persisted for years that the astronauts -- nearly all of whom are military officers susceptible to being silenced under orders -- may have seen something more on the Moon than rocks and dust.

According to transcripts of the technical debriefing following the Apollo 11 mission, astronauts Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin and Michael Collins told of an encounter with a large cylindrical UFO even before reaching the Moon, U.S. investigative journalist and researcher Jim Marrs documents. Mr. Aldrin further officially presented his encounters with apparent Extraterrestrials on CNN's Larry King Show.

Jim Marrs further presents that Mr. Aldrin said, "The first unusual thing that we saw I guess was one day out or pretty close to the Moon. It had a sizable dimension to it". Aldrin said the Apollo crew at first thought the object was the Saturn 4 booster rocket (S-IVB); but, he added, "We called the ground and were told the S-IVB was 6,000 miles away."


UFOs attacking Ukraine

Ukraine's political life is no stranger to the unusual and the inexplicable, but if ordinary people tire of intrigues and controversy, they can turn their attention to more celestial, if no more comprehensible phenomena. UFO sightings are up across the country. But in contrast to the politicians, no ufologist claims to have all the answers.

The Zond center for the study of anomalous phenomena claims that Ukraine has seen an increase in UFO activity over recent years. "While in the 1990s we had 10 to 15 reports a year, now their number has increased to 20-30. Most of them are accompanied by photos and videos. Witnesses understand that if they have seen something unusual in the sky they must tell researchers about it," said Artyom Bilyk, the center's learned secretary.

In scientists' view, the increase in reported sightings is explained by the proliferation of technology, as more and more people have access to cameras, video cameras, camera phones and so on. But even controlling for the increase in available technology, the UFO phenomenon is now observed more often than before.


Oregon, US: Bizarre lights spark reports

Three residents in Nyssa and one in Ontario said they saw bright lights in the night sky Tuesday and Wednesday that were unlike anything they had ever seen before.

A clear, official explanation for what they saw, however, has yet to materialize.

The people said they did not want their names released, though, because they fear the community will think they are "crazy."

The bizarre light incident in the sky occurred between 9:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. both nights.


UK: Strange UFOs spotted on A38 by Ripley man

A Ripley man had a close encounter of the third kind this weekend when he spotted mysterious orange lights hovering over Belper.

The unidentified flying objects were seen by Jason Selby, of Ripley, at around 9.20pm while driving towards Derby on the A38 on Saturday night.

Mr Selby, said: "I watched these two objects fly from the direction of Derby. One followed the other in what seemed to be almost a straight line. At first I thought that they may be helicopters, but I noticed that they had no green or red navigation lights visible on them."

My Selby then pulled into the layby on A38 just before the Kilburn turn off and watched the two objects in the sky for another two minutes.


Russia: UFO Spotted in Moscow Region Sky

To Paul Porcaro, it sounds like the idling engine of a faraway car. His wife, Sadie, hears moving water.

However it is described, "The Sound" can't be found.

For the past two years, the Porcaros have been troubled by a strange and unexplained noise at their home on Anderson's east side.

"We keep the radio on during the day just to drown it out," Paul said. "At night, it's hard to sleep."

Flashback England: Mystery Humming Plagues Pensioner

It sounds like a big tumble dryer, but it seems airborne rather than underground. That is the desperate question from New Waltham pensioner Margaret Belton (67), who claims the humming noises which have plagued her for three years are getting worse.

In May 2004, the Telegraph reported how unidentified humming and whizzing sounds were keeping Mrs Belton awake at her Pretymen Crescent home.

Since then a team of experts from the University of Salford have visited the location as part of a national research project into the "hum".

A fascinating report has proved the noises Mrs Belton hears are not just sounds in her head.

In a report by academics, an intermittent sound of between 40 and 60 decibels was recorded at the pensioner's home.

The findings were mirrored in other parts of the country where low frequency sounds were also registered in areas where residents complained of "humming" noises.

However, the cause of the noises remain a mystery.


New Zealand: Mysterious humming driving Aucklanders "bonkers"

A mysterious humming driving people to despair across Auckland has pricked the ears, and curiosity, of scientists trying to find the source.

Massey University computer engineering scientists Tom Moir and Fakhrul Alam have been contacted by more than 30 people, most in Auckland and the North Shore, who claim to have heard a humming noise.

The symptoms are similar to those suffered by people with tinnitus, commonly associated with a prolonged high-frequency ringing in the ear.

The scientists are visiting people who can hear the humming, and trying to measure the noise in the hope they will be able to identify its source.
