Approximately 130,000 pages of files from an official 22-year Air Force UFO study, known as Project Blue Book, are finally available to the public for free online.

Project Blue Book began in 1947 under the name...

When venture capitalist Craig Lowther took his dog out of his Tynemouth, England, home at 11:30p.m. on Jan. 12, an unusual object in the late night sky caught his eye.

While videotaping the strange twinkling light, he couldn't imagine that a local scientist would later suggest that what he experienced...

This video will finally make you believe -- that video editing software has come a long way.

There are a slew of inconsistencies in this UFO video, reportedly shot in Massachusetts. It's unclear exactly when, where and by whom it was created. Shortly after the original...

Bigfoot Strolls Through A Russian Forest -- At Least That's The Claim [VIDEO]

(96) Comments | Posted January 15, 2015 | 12:32 PM

A video has emerged with claims that it shows a large, hairy figure walking swiftly through a snowy, wooded area in Russia. Key details about the incident are missing. But the visuals are remarkable.

Watch it here:

According to Mirror online, some Russian adventurers went in search of the elusive Yeti -- that's what many call Bigfoot in Russia -- after reports of creature sightings emerged from a remote region of the southwestern Adygea Republic in the foothills of the Caucasus Mountains. The map below shows Adygea's capital city of Maykop.

The research team spoke to local residents who said they saw the unusual animal.

The Daily Mail reports that one eyewitness, Ludmila Hristoforova, told a local television station, "The creature was big, looking like a bear, but not a bear. From the door we've seen something big and shaggy."

Another resident, Andrei Kazaryan (who Mysterious Universe suggests was one of the investigators), said, "I heard footsteps and we were pretty sure there was no one else around because we knew for sure everyone else was inside the house. Although we didn't see anyone, we saw its huge footprints."

The researchers claimed they captured that video footage -- seen above -- of the hairy Yeti. They also made a plaster cast of a large footprint found in the snow.

Both the video footage and the footprint cast are now reportedly in the hands of local scientists. Oddly, the names have not been revealed of those scientists or of the original researchers who say they took the video.

This story brings up other dubious questions:

  • Why was no exact location of the event given out?
  • Why no exact date or time of the alleged video encounter?
  • Why is it that, after the "Yeti" moves quickly through the snow from right to left, seeming to elude the research group as fast as it can, it suddenly stops its forward motion and casually turns to the right, not appearing to be in a hurry, almost as if it/he was waiting for further cinematic direction from those who were doing the videotaping?
  • And why was only one footprint found, in an area that clearly could have produced many more?

This story is hot on the heels of two other Bigfoot tales we've reported on so far in January, including one that set off a huge controversy about a reported Skunk Ape photographed in Tampa, Florida.

There was also the one about how the Arizona Department of Transportation posted an image on its Facebook page, purporting to show "a family of Sasquatches" standing in snow next to a highway on Jan. 1. That turned out to be a little joke played on the public by Arizona state transportation officials.

We have a feeling 2015 hasn't seen the last of Bigfoot.

새로운 UFO 핫스팟은 콜롬비아 메델린이다(동영상)

UFO는 세계 곳곳에서 무작위로 나타난다. 물론 다양한 소프트웨어로 조작되어 온라인에 올린 사람들이 '진짜' UFO라고 주장하는 경우가 대부분이지만 말이다.


그런데 짧은 기간 내에 일정 지역에서 UFO를 목격했다는 보도가 특별한 이유 없이 한꺼번에 쏟아지는 경우도 간혹 있다. 콜롬비아의 메델린이 바로 그런 지역이다. 2백44만의 인구를 지닌 메델린은 콜롬비아에서 두 번째로 큰...
