Mystery UFO-like Disc Found in Russia

via News.com.au:

Coal miners claim to have discovered a bizarre flying saucer while completing excavation work in Siberia’s Kuznetsk Basin, Russia.

Almost perfectly circular in shape with a diameter of 1.2 metres and weighing roughly 200kg, the unusual object was found hidden 40 metres underground.

Given the position of the finding, it is suggested the object may be older than mammoth bones, which have been discovered in the same location at a depth of 25 metres.

Excavator Boris Glazkov, 40, who found the object, said it stood out because of its distinctive shape and size.

Maybe Ancient Aliens Are Out There After All

Micah Hanks at Mysterious Universe:

The concept of alien life visiting Earth, particularly in ancient times to plant the seeds of knowledge amidst early human minds, has gone through a renaissance over the last few years. Every few decades, trends (including this one) will appear to go through short little bursts of revitalization, almost like mystery signals leaping from the otherwise desolate void of space, and calling to us with promises of things greater and more distant than ourselves or the knowledge we have attained.

While the concept of “ancient aliens” has been entertained by some of the brightest minds, the concept is generally attributed to–of all people–Carl Sagan, who posited as early as 1966 that what he called paleo-contact might account for knowledge brought to Earth by extraterrestrials, in a book he coauthored with astrophysicist I.S. Shklovski called Intelligent Life in the Universe. Earlier roots predating Sagan and Shklovski’s writing have been linked to H.

The Mystery of the Falling Teen Birth Rate

Anti-teenage pregnancy IIINo one seems to know what’s causing a double-digit percentage decline in births by America’s teenage girls (it’s not more abortions, it’s less pregnancies), reports Vox:

At first, it looked like a mistake.

The staff of TeenWise, a Minneapolis-based non-profit, crunched the numbers for its annual report on Minnesota teenagers’ sexual health. Their calculations seemed to show something unbelievable: the state’s teen birth rate had a double-digit decline between 2009 and 2010.

That seemed impossible. Just three years earlier, in 2007, Minnesota’s teen birth rate had increased by 1.4 percent; nationally it had increased by 3 percent in 2006. How could the rate then fall so steeply and so quickly?

“We ran the data, and we figured it was a mistake,” said Judith Kahn, TeenWise’s executive director. “Then, it looked like everybody had a mistake. We talked to others around the country, and they were all seeing a very similar thing.”

TeenWise’s calculations turned out to be accurate.

Memories Transplanted With Organs

0da800f609ff

I recently came across an interesting and novel phenomenon via a remarkable fact I read on Kickassfacts.com. It seems organ recipients sometimes have living memories or peculiar affinities which somehow carried over along from their donor. Can the ‘Ship of Theseus’ that arrives with new oars, planks, and sail be considered the same ship that left port?

Ethically, very few religions around the world actually have a problem with organ harvesting and transplantation. With reference to harvesting from the brain-dead, Pius XII said that knowledge of when death occurs is the domain of medical science. However some Judaic authorities take issue with harvesting the organs of a brain-dead individual because anything that will stop the heart beating causes death. Even Jehovah’s Witnesses have changed their stance since the 1980s, excluding the acceptance of an organ from their definition of cannibalism (which includes accepting blood transfusions).

However, no religions to my knowledge presently acknowledge the idea that a person may somehow be incarnate after their death when another person has accepted that person’s organ.… Read the rest

A resurgence of “black-eyed child” sightings

Just in time for Halloween.

via Unexplained Mysteries:

A mysterious entity has been sighted at Cannock Chase in England for the first time in almost 30 years.

Reports of a ghostly girl with “coal-black pits for eye sockets” have seen something of a resurgence over the last two years at the otherwise idyllic Staffordshire beauty spot. The sightings echo a similar spate of encounters that took place back in the 1980s.

Paranormal investigator Lee Brickley has been attempting to get to the bottom of the mystery and is appealing for information. The last reported sighting occurred around two weeks ago.

The witness reported that he and his wife had been walking in the area with their dog when, upon embarking upon a path through the woods, they heard the sound of a little girl giggling.

“To our amazement, a child, no taller than one meter in height appeared as if out of nowhere further up the path in front of us,” he wrote.

What Caused The Red Glow Over the Pacific?

glow-585x306

What do you think caused it?

via Mysterious Universe:

The pilot and co-pilot of a Boeing 747-8 flying from Hong Kong to Anchorage, Alaska, were passing near the Russian peninsula of Kamchatka when they observed a fiery reddish glow over the Pacific. With no other planes in the area at the time to confirm the sighting, they took pictures of and reported to Air Traffic Control, then completed the flight to Anchorage. So … what was it?

On August 24, 2014, Dutch pilot and photographer JPC van Heijst was five hours into the ten hour flight when he spotted a single intense bolt of light shoot vertically into the air. There were no other flashes or storms in the area or on their radar. Twenty minutes later, he saw the red glow. Having heard reports of earthquakes in California, Chile and Iceland, he checked for quakes or volcanic activity on the route but saw no alerts.

Solved: Death Valley’s Sliding Rocks

Another mystery solved!

via Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego:

Racetrack Playa is home to an enduring Death Valley mystery. Littered across the surface of this dry lake, also called a “playa,” are hundreds of rocks – some weighing as much as 320 kilograms (700 pounds) – that seem to have been dragged across the ground, leaving synchronized trails that can stretch for hundreds of meters.

What powerful force could be moving them? Researchers have investigated this question since the 1940s, but no one has seen the process in action – until now.

In a paper published in the journal PLOS ONE on Aug. 27, a team led by Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, paleobiologist Richard Norris reports on first-hand observations of the phenomenon.

Because the stones can sit for a decade or more without moving, the researchers did not originally expect to see motion in person.

A Living Gnome Has Been Spotted in Pennsylvania

Reminds me of the story I wrote in 8th grade about a gnome who set traps throughout a forest to cut people’s feet off.

via Earth Files:

On Thursday, August 21, 2014, the following email was sent to Earthfiles with images taken by a Bolymedia hunting camera sensitive to heat and movement. The sender, Keith Sniadach (SNY-dack) from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, gave me permission to reprint his email and images.

August 21, 2014

Hello Ms. Howe,

My name is Keith Sniadach. I am an author, screenwriter and researcher from Pittsburgh. My writing is geared toward the paranormal/supernatural. (You can go to Amazon and type my name in the search bar to see my books).

I’m writing to ask if you have had any reports come in of any gnomes/trolls or any other mythological and/or cryptid forest creatures like a brownie in the northeast U.S. — particularly Western Pennsylvania.

The reason is because I have a cabin north of Pittsburgh in the mountains of Western Pennsylvania where I enjoy the summer months.

Mystery: Have you heard The Hum?

Disinfo has covered the mysterious hum before (here and here). But Policy.Mic has a write-up and I thought that the Disinfo community might like to read more about this fascinating phenomena. It appears that scientists are as baffled as ever.

via Policy.Mic (follow link to read the entire article):

Dr. Glen MacPherson doesn’t remember the first time he heard the sound. It may have started at the beginning of 2012, a dull, steady droning like that of a diesel engine idling down the street from his house in the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. A lecturer at the University of British Columbia and high school teacher of physics, mathematics and biology, months passed before MacPherson realized that the noise, which he’d previously dismissed as some background nuisance like car traffic or an airplane passing overhead, was something abnormal.

“Once I realized that this wasn’t simply the ambient noise of living in my little corner of the world, I went through the typical stages and steps to try to isolate the sources,” MacPherson told Mic.
