  • If Aliens Are Out There, Maybe They Should Run

    Photo of If Aliens Are Out There, Maybe They Should Run

    Where are all the aliens? asks Russian theoretical physicist Alexander Berezin in his new paper, titled “‘First in, last out’ solution to the Fermi Paradox.”

    It’s a question we’ve long pondered, and perhaps one of the greatest — in a universe so vast, and with so many seemingly habitable planets, why have we yet to observe intelligent extraterrestrial life? That is the Fermi paradox.

    Berezin thinks the answer is simple, though perhaps somewhat “hard to accept.” In fact, he writes that it “predicts a future for our own civilization that is even worse than extinction.”

    Well, now I’m curious.

  • Time Travel Proof: The Mounting Evidence Of A Broken Timeline

    May 19, 2018
    Photo of Time Travel Proof: The Mounting Evidence Of A Broken Timeline

    Evidence of time travel is not something to be ignored — these periodic blips of stories, pictures, and artifacts are nothing less than blatant signs that our universe is in peril. The space-time continuum is breaking apart!

    Eight years ago, I shared the first batch of this evidence. A handful of photographs and video clips that many believed were proof that time travel not only existed, but that individuals from the future had already visited us. Some, it was claimed, had even journeyed back to ancient times.

    But they left footprints. They dropped artifacts. They were mistakenly caught on camera. Others deliberately shared knowledge of their strange voyages.

    Other time travelers were not quite so deliberate — they were like you or me. Ordinary people caught in time slips, temporarily whisked away to other eras, or perhaps even other universes.

    Who were these alleged time travelers? These are their stories…

    Time Traveler In 1917 Photograph

    It’s an odd thing when something, or someone, doesn’t quite fit in. At first, you may not notice. But upon closer inspection, the anomaly becomes clear.

    So is the case with this seemingly ordinary photograph taken in 1917 Canada, found in a 1974 book titled The Great History of Cape Scott. It shows a group of people sitting upon the rocks of a beach, but among the crowd is a man who appears suspiciously out of place.

    Many believe his clothes do not match those of the other beach-goers. Wearing a tee shirt, shorts, and with a hair style that seems quite modern in comparison, the mysterious individual hits all the check boxes for a person displaced in time.

    In the photo, others even appear to look at him, perhaps in confusion.

    This particular time traveler is colloquially known as the “surfer dude.”

    The Mummy’s Modern Boots


    Out-of-place artifacts are a curious phenomenon. When they’re discovered, they may very well shake the foundations of what we previously thought to be true about human history and ancient civilizations. Many of these artifacts, while unusual, are still somewhat explainable, such as the Antikythera mechanism.

    Others, however, raise incredible questions.

    For some time now, many have wondered about the existence of the so-called “Adidas Mummy,” the preserved body of a 30 to 40-year-old woman discovered in the Altai mountains region of Mongolia in 2016. She had been buried there for about 1,100 years.

    Those studying her found that she had likely died of a “blow to the head.” However, it was her feet that drew the most attention.

    She wore what looked uncannily like modern day shoes, perhaps resembling a pair of snowboarding boots, as the Daily Mail mused in 2017. They were made of felt, with splashes of bright red, and “knee length” with leather soles.

    Their unique design, likened to Adidas, led many to question if perhaps the ancient Mongolian woman was in fact a time traveler. Perhaps, even if the shoes themselves were not from current times, they were made, or possibly inspired, by someone from the future utilizing the same style.

    Among her other belongings was what archaeologists described as a “beauty kit,” including a mirror, a comb, and a knife. However, scientists brushed off any claims that she was a time traveler, though they did say the style of the boots was “very modern.”

    Nikola Tesla’s Jump Room

    For years, Andrew Basiago has told the story of Project Pegasus, the alleged covert time travel initiative that was funded and maintained by the United States government throughout the 1960s and 70s. But perhaps the most interesting detail of his peculiar story is the existence of the so-called Jump Room.

    It was in this room that Basiago claimed participants such as himself performed their secretive time travel experiments.

    Built using designs by the late Nikola Tesla, recovered from his New York apartment shortly after his death, the room housed what some would call a teleportation machine. It consisted of a “shimmering curtain” made of “radiant energy,” a special, and allegedly as-yet-undisclosed, form of energy that is “latent and pervasive” throughout the cosmos. It is, if this story is to be believed, what makes time travel possible.

    The curtain stood between two elliptical booms, and by passing through it, would-be travelers could journey across vast distances — and time itself.

    Beyond that, there are few other details about the mysterious Jump Room, and no physical proof remains. Did it really exist?

    The Time Slip Hotel: Proof That Even Buildings Time Travel?

    Image: Emily Baruffaldi/Unsplash

    It’s not unusual to, on occasion, find yourself at what you might describe as a “strange” place, especially if you happen to be in a country you’ve never visited before. Two couples who vacationed to Spain in the late 1970s know this all too well. In fact, their story has become something of a time slip legend.

    In 1979, they were on their way to Spain, leaving England and venturing through France. While near Montelimar, they decided to stop and search for a hotel. Their original choices were packed, but eventually they did find one — an odd place, an old two-story building with the simple word “HOTEL” above the entrance.

    They got a room, and stayed for the night, despite everything seeming particularly old-fashioned. The bed was hard, the place didn’t have a telephone, and there was no glass in the windows. Likely out of bemusement, they took a number of photographs.

    When they went down to the dining room the next morning, they had a chance to see the hotel’s other customers. They too looked strangely out of place, dressed in outmoded clothing, two in old uniforms. Strangest of all was the bill for their stay — 19 francs, far less than they had anticipated.

    All in all, it was a somewhat strange experience, but not unpleasant. They’d found a place to rest for the night, and continued on their way to Spain, where they presumably had a decent time. It wasn’t until they returned to France and looked for the hotel again that they knew something was truly amiss.

    The hotel didn’t exist.

    This wasn’t a matter of the hotel simply shutting down, or their being unable to find it again. It simply was not there. They even asked around in Montelimar, and no one had ever heard of it.

    When they returned to England, the mystery deepened: Their photographs of the hotel were gone. Not only was there no proof that the hotel existed, but there was no proof that they’d ever been there at all.

    Their odd tale was later featured on an episode of the television series Strange But True.

    Is One Man’s Near Miss Proof of Time Travel?

    Image: Alex Guillaume/Unsplash

    In 2019, a very curious video from Turkey showed a man nearly meeting his fate, only to be saved in the strangest way by a mysterious passerby.

    According to Demirören News Agency, the event happened in late February in the Turkish city of Adana. Serdar Binici was standing outside of his store when another man, who happened to be walking by, tapped his left shoulder.

    Binici, for reasons even he claims to not understand, instinctively looked over to his right, and in that moment a truck drove by, and its rear metal door swung open toward his head. Binici was able to move out of the way just in time.

    The story was featured by news outlets in Turkey, and was eventually shared on Reddit.

    During a follow-up interview, Binici questioned how and why the events played out as they did. Why did he look over his opposite shoulder, and not the one he’d been tapped on? Why did the stranger tap his shoulder at all? Binici supposes the stranger may not, himself, know why any of this happened. Perhaps, he thinks, it was all some kind of divine intervention.

    However, the peculiarity of this video has led many to speculate that the passing stranger wasn’t just some random person, but actually a time traveler — possibly one on a mission from the future, striving to put right what once went wrong. Could this incident be yet more proof of real time travel?

    Theory: Every time we hear one of these doomsday predictions, they actually do happen. However, because of something along the lines of quantum immortality, at the very end, everyone’s consciousness transfers into a new universe and we continue on living none the wiser. That’s the stuff the Mandela Effect is made of.

    Where I’m from, Coast to Coast AM begins at the stroke of Midnight.

    It was a long time ago, up late on a school night, when I first heard it. I don’t even remember why. I guess I was just bored and, despite never usually listening to the radio, much less AM, I thought I’d scan the airwaves and see what was on.

    Among the static and the monotone voices of other channels, I eventually tuned into an old woman telling a ghost story, of all things. Then, the low, mysterious voice of a late night host, asking questions and discussing topics I’d never really heard outside my old Daniel Cohen books and Unsolved Mysteries. Before the Internet was as big as it is, before broadband, before Ghost Adventures, there he was.

    I didn’t know that host’s name back then. I do now.

  • UFO Sightings 2018: Encounters With Unidentified Objects

    March 2, 2018
    Photo of UFO Sightings 2018: Encounters With Unidentified Objects

    The number of reported UFO sightings is seemingly booming, if the Internet is anything to go by. Jump right to this year’s sightings.

    Every day, countless videos of unidentified orbs or strange objects in the sky are uploaded online — but with new ways to report and share sightings come whole new levels of hoaxes and fakes. How do we separate the signal from the noise?

    We don’t. We just look at the reports we have and decide for ourselves which are the most believable.

    According to the National UFO Reporting Center, 2017 brought them 4,655 UFO sighting reports within the United States, down from 2016’s 5,619. How will 2018 fare? (Update: The total number of UFO sightings reported to NUFORC in 2018, according to their database, was 3,228.)

    Let’s find out. On this page, you’ll find some of 2018’s more prominent UFO sightings. Some may be hoaxes, some may have ordinary explanations. Perhaps we’ll catch a few that are truly out of this world.

    2018 UFO Sightings & Videos

    Pilots Spot Possible UFOs Over Ireland

    Image: Nils Nedel/Unsplash

    On Friday, November 9, multiple pilots spotted a number of bright unidentified objects moving at high speeds over Kerry, Ireland. According to the Irish Examiner, one pilot reached out to Shannon Air Traffic control after witnessing a “speeding bright light,” later confirmed by two other pilots.

    You can listen to the ATC conversation here, courtesy LiveATC.net (incident begins at around 18:00).

    “It was moving so fast,” the pilot reported, “It seemed to come up on our left hand side and then rapidly veered to the north. We saw a bright light and then it disappeared at a very high speed.”

    “We’re just wondering what that could’ve been?”

    The incident is currently being investigated. Experts believe the objects were likely meteorites.

    Orb Of Light Spotted By New York News Team

    On June 21, 2018, WKBW TV out of Buffalo, New York shared this curious find during their local weather forecast.

    Meteorologist Autumn Lewandowski spied something interesting on one of their time-lapse cameras, while filming the horizon: a bright orb of light, that eventually shot off toward the camera and out of view.

    Cigar-Shaped UFO Sighted Over United Kingdom

    On July 7, a family spotted a black, cigar-shaped UFO in the skies over Banbury, Oxfordshire in the UK.

    The object had a very narrow cylindrical shape and at times appeared to either be reflective or give off its own light (at approx. 1:03 in the video, you can see light move from the bottom up over the surface of the object).

    According to the uploader, the object “was pretty much holding position” despite moving clouds and a decent wind. This, he says, possibly counters the idea that it was a solar balloon, though many believe this to be the case. Near the end of the sighting (which does not appear in the video), the object “climbed rapidly at a near vertical angle until it was no longer visible.”

    What’s more, before the witness could get his actual camera to record clear footage, the object could be seen “flashing and rotating.”

    UFO Manifests Over Nazca Lines?

    A Peruvian UFO hunter spotted an unidentified object, known as an OVNI in Spanish, hovering over the famous Nazca Lines on the evening of June 9.

    The footage, uploaded on June 27 by the Peruvian Association of Ufology, shows a dark, and strangely unmoving, oblong object in the sky. The video’s description says it was “completely static” and likens its shape to a zeppelion.

    “Are we facing the manifestation of a UFO on the Nazca Lines?” they ask.

    A UFO Sighting Among New York Clouds

    An ATC recording from May 26, 2018 provides a glimpse into an intriguing possible UFO encounter. At about 1:00 p.m. over Huntington, New York, a pilot contacted air traffic control to report an unidentified object in front of his plane, at an altitude of about 6,000 feet.

    “I have an object in front of me, I don’t know what it is,” the pilot said. “You mean like a drone or something?” responded the controller.

    The pilot wasn’t convinced, reporting that the object appeared larger than a drone, though ATC showed nothing on radar. The pilot then requested to make a left turn, which was granted. At this point, the object moved behind the plane and into the surrounding clouds.

    “Now it’s gone behind the clouds, I have no idea what it is,” the pilot said, “Definitely something was there.”

    “Okay, I mean, I have to assume it was a drone,” said the ATC.

    “Actually, it looked like it had lights on it.”

    “That’s, uh, really interesting…”

    The controller later provided the pilot with a phone number to call upon landing — something usually reserved for pilots who commit errors during flight, but not on this occasion. At this time, the object is simply classed as drone-like, but it’s still unclear what it truly was.

    UFOs and Purple Beams Over Phoenix

    On April 11, 2018, YouTuber Earthly Patriot was “watching webcams” of the skies over Phoenix, Arizona and witnessed what she describes as “several purple beams” and other strange UFOs. The footage was later picked up and shared by a few media outlets, including Coast to Coast AM.

    In the video, you can see clips of various bright orb-like lights dancing in the sky, as well as “purple beams.” One YouTube commenter likens the appearance of the beams to Tesla scalar waves, while others suggest they are likely just light reflected off insects.

    Columbus, North Carolina Lights in the Night

    A strange UFO sighting out of Columbus, North Carolina was reported to MUFON on April 3, 2018. The sighting apparently happened that same evening.

    It shows what some are claiming is a “UFO mothership” — a series of lights in a nearly circular or triangular pattern that perhaps betrays a larger object hiding in the night sky.

    Many aren’t convinced, with several folks in the YouTube comments of the above video saying it’s more likely lights or lanterns on a hill or nearby building.

    U.S. Navy Pilots Encounter UFO Over East Coast

    In March 2018, The Stars Academy of Arts and Science released footage from 2015 featuring an encounter between two Navy pilots and an unidentified object over the east coast.

    The very short clip (which you can see above, courtesy USA Today) is only about 30 seconds long, captured using an infrared camera. “Whoa, got it! Woo hoo!” one of the F/A-18 fighter pilots exclaims as he tracks the apparently fast-moving UFO. “What the (expletive) is that thing?”

    As in many cases, this particular UFO sighting arrives alongside a severe lack of information about the object itself — how fast was it moving, could it have been a drone, what was the official response, etc. According to USA Today, the Department of Defense has yet to comment.

    However, this release is part of a stream of declassified documents and videos pertaining to UFOs that have appeared over the past several months.

    Pilots Have A Close Encounter Over Arizona

    Two pilots in two separate planes reportedly encountered a UFO while flying above Arizona on February 24, 2018. The unidentified object passed over their planes —  one a Phoenix Air Learjet, the other an American Airlines jet — during routine flights. The Federal Aviation Administration later released audio of the pilots reporting the unidentified object to Air Traffic Control.

    “Was anybody above us that passed us like 30 seconds ago?” the Learjet pilot asked after sighting the object. “Negative,” replied the controller. “OK. Something did,” the pilot added, with another pilot quipping, “It’s a UFO!” Later, an American Airlines pilot would confirm that he also saw the object in the area, at least 2,000 feet above his plane.

    The object has not, at this time, been identified. One possibility that’s been floated is a weather balloon. “I don’t know what it was,” one of the pilots said, “It wasn’t an airplane.” They did, however, mention it had a reflection.

    The above video contains a portion of the communication between the pilots and ATC.

    What Places Have the Most UFO Sightings?

    If you’re looking to have your own UFO sighting, there are actually a few places where you’re more likely to get your wish.

    According to the NUFORC database, California ranks number one for extraterrestrial encounter reports within the United States, by quite a lot. This could be due to the state’s high population, but let’s take a look at the top ten states by UFO reports, as of April 27, 2018:

    • California (13,228)
    • Florida (6,276)
    • Washington (5,739)
    • Texas (4,843)
    • New York (4,567)
    • Arizona (3,915)
    • Pennsylvania (3,771)
    • Illinois (3,509)
    • Ohio (3,451)
    • North Carolina (2,838)

    The population of California is reportedly 39.54 million, while Florida is home to an estimated 20.98 million people. Washington, however, with its 7.4 million residents, very nearly matches the number of reports coming out of Florida, and handily beats Texas and its population of about 28.3 million. Perhaps some places are a bit hotter when it comes to paranormal activity.

    There are, however, many variables at play, and here we’re only referencing the data collected by NUFORC, and not other UFO reporting agencies like MUFON.

    It’s difficult to tell what the real score is, and it’s also very likely that most UFO sightings go unreported. Many sightings may be of perfectly ordinary objects (drones, planes, etc.), as well, further muddying the waters.

    UFO & Alien Encounter News

    • Final number of sightings reported to NUFORC in 2018: 3,228

    April 10, 2018 – A monument in Sheffield, Massachusetts commemorating the area’s 1969 UFO incident is currently in jeopardy of being moved for a second time. Some residents feel the 5,000 pound, 6-foot-tall monument is an “eye sore,” while others are keen to preserve its place as an historic marker. The debate will rage on, but there’s just one more hiccup, as The Berkshire Eagle reports: “It’s not clear who actually owns the monument.”

    April 3, 2018 – Perhaps this isn’t the most exciting UFO news, but the Royal Canadian Mint recently revealed a new glow-in-the-dark coin featuring imagery of 1967’s Falcon Lake UFO incident. The incident occurred while an unsuspecting “rock nut” named Stefan Michalak was out searching for precious metals at the lake in Manitoba. Instead, he found a pair of metallic saucer-shaped crafts, and the rest is history. In the dark, the UFO and its strange beam of light glow brightly on the coin.

    February 19, 2018 – A FOIA request has obtained documents and audio recordings pertaining to a sighting on October 25, 2017, when an unidentified craft appeared in the skies of Northern California and Oregon. The craft was visible in broad daylight at approx. 4:30 p.m., among regular identified planes at about 37,000 feet. Confused, air traffic control scrambled to identify the rogue craft, and F-15 interceptors were sent to investigate. The plane was described as “big” and “white,” and moving very fast.

    The easy explanation is that it was an experimental military craft, however this doesn’t explain why the pilot would journey near commercial airplanes. Perhaps it was a “stealth” test, as after some time it ceased to appear on radar.

    The “Almost” Sightings

    The following reports and videos contain UFO sightings that either have immediately apparent explanations, or were sufficiently rebuffed right out of the gate. This doesn’t mean the explanations are perfectly accurate or that the cases are closed in any way. They just don’t quite stack up to other sightings.

    The Model UFO

    A teenager managed to captured footage of a strange alleged UFO bouncing over the skies near a RAF base in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire in May.

    The object was white with a similarly white trail. At first, the witness though it “was a meteor falling,” until the object “stopped for a few seconds and went back up.” It then disappeared for a moment, only to reappear. That’s when he started recording.

    The UFO sighting didn’t just involve a wispy white anomaly, though — the witness also reported that the object emitted “red sparks or electricity,” and at one point even split into two separate UFOs.

    However, it later turned out to likely be a “large model airplane with flares attached,” according to a Reddit post on May 12, 2018.

    Milwaukee Lights Sighting

    A mysterious display of lights above Milwaukee, Wisconsin shocked Fox 6 News anchors on February 27, 2018.

    “Are those fireworks?” one of the anchors can be heard asking as the weird lights dance in the night sky. “Aliens? What is that?” The segment went viral, and the speculation began.

    One of the first  theories to pop up is that the phenomenon was nothing more than seagulls reflecting light, though many claim that sounds like an explanation straight out of Men In Black. However, roughly 30 minutes after the “sighting,” a Fox 6 reporter captured video of a flock of seagulls right above the Milwaukee County Courthouse, appearing just like the mysterious white lights in the above video.

  • Real Gargoyles: Sightings of Grotesque Demons and Flying Humanoids

    February 14, 2018
    Photo of Real Gargoyles: Sightings of Grotesque Demons and Flying Humanoids

    Are gargoyles real?

    Well, of course they are — by their ordinary definition, gargoyles are nothing more than simple water spouts with elaborate and grotesque designs. They jut out from the roofs and sides of buildings, often cathedrals and churches, to prevent too much rainwater from running down their walls.

    Yet still the question remains: Do gargoyles exist beyond the walls of those old buildings? Are there such creatures in the world?

    Believe it or not, many have reported sightings of alleged flying gargoyles over the years, winged demon-like creatures with elongated, grotesque faces and, sometimes, hooves. Perhaps gargoyles are, indeed, real. The stories you’ll find below may prove their existence, or at least open up the possibility.

    The Devil In Jersey

    Before we get to the actual sightings, let’s take a quick look at one of the more famous legendary winged demons said to exist in the United States: the Jersey Devil. I mention it because, as you can see from the public domain sketching below, it bears a striking resemblance to a gargoyle, with large wings, hooves, and an elongated demonic face.

    The Jersey Devil is considered something of an urban legend. As such, it has at least a few known origin tales. One local bit of folklore tells of a woman known as Mother Leeds, who in the 1700s had twelve children. When she was about to have her thirteenth child, however, she cursed it, saying that it would be the devil. She was, you could say, tired of having children.

    When the child was finally born, it at first appeared perfectly normal. But the curse, unfortunately, worked — very soon after, the child morphed into a demonic creature with leathery wings, hooves, and a forked tail. It flew up the chimney and fled into the nearby Pine Barrens, where it lurks to this day.

    Ever since, there have been many reported sightings of the winged devil in New Jersey.

    The Galloway Photo

    In 2015, an image appeared online when a man from Little Egg Harbor Township claimed to encounter that sae strange winged creature in Galloway, New Jersey. He’d been driving home from work when he noticed “what he thought was a llama running in and out of the trees lining the road.”

    Shockingly, however, that “llama” sprouted wings and took to the sky before disappearing completely. He did manage to capture a bizarre photo with his smartphone — it shows a dark figure shaped like a goat, with two horns and what may be wings. Tree tops appear in the background.

    He shared the photo and his story in an email to NJ.com, where it first appeared. He promised that it was not fake.

    In 1999, another photo surfaced on Facebook of what some claimed was the image of a demon. It was taken in Arizona, and while at first glance you can definitely make out the shape of a large, winged demon, many believe this is just a blurry picture of a palm tree.

    Pareidolia at work, I suppose.

    Real Gargoyle Sightings

    Let’s move beyond the Jersey Devil and demonic palm trees. Below you’ll find more stories of allegedly real gargoyle sightings, which will be added to over time. From Chicago to South America, and even into Spain, gargoyles, it would seem, are out there.

    A Gargoyle In Spain

    Just last year, in 2017, a story appeared out of Spain of a “Gargoyle-like” creature sighting. Crytozoology News interviewed the witness, Alex Nasirc, who claimed he was awoken one night in September 2010 by what he said vaguely “looked like a dog with wings.”

    The sighting happened at one in the morning in Santa Maria Del Aguila, a Spanish town in the province of Almeria. He heard a strange, spine-tingling noise that resembled a shrieking woman outside of his open window. He looked out the window, only to find a bizarre winged creature approaching from several feet away, perched on the building.

    His description was pretty detailed, as well: The creature was large, with a “thick, short beak” and a “stretched” head. Its body was “bulky” and a pinkish color, and it didn’t seem to have front legs. Its wings were curved, with a span of “around 2 to 3 meters.” It had a long thin tale, and its movements were slow and heavy, like it was struggling to fly. “It almost looked like a robot,” he said.

    His encounter didn’t last very long. The gargoyle-like creature took off, flying into the night sky.

    A Flying Humanoid Demon In Northern California

    In 2011, a witness named Ashley submitted her strange encounter to the website True Ghost Tales. She had been walking down a street with her boyfriend at about 3:00 a.m. one evening, when she witnessed what she described as a creature very similar in appearance to the Jersey Devil.

    It was flying very low to the ground, so much so that she could hear its large wings flapping. The creature, she wrote, was roughly 7.5 feet tall, with a torso similar to a “man’s with broad shoulders.”

    When she saw it, she screamed. At that point, the creature disappeared beyond the wiring of a nearby telephone pole, as if it had simply vanished into thin air.
